Wherefore putting away lying, speak everyman truth with his neighbors; for we are members one of another”,
Lies are not of God; they are works of the flesh. From the scriptures, we see that the works of the flesh also refer to the works of darkness; the works of darkness attracts the cloaks of darkness which in turns deactivate your armor of light.
Today’s scripture text points out that speaking the truth is a necessity as a believer in Christ. When one speaks the truth, he has his armor of light activated and that light repels all that is of darkness from his life, bringing him into the plan of God for his future. However, when a believer does not put away lying, allows the cloak of darkness access to his spirit.
Are you living in deception or giving in to lies? Turn to the Lord and repent today, asking the Holy Ghost to help you. He is the Spirit of truth and He is so eager to guide you into all truth, which will make you free (John 8. 32). He will also empower you with the strength to overcome. Hallelujah!
