Spiritual truth has its beginning with God making it pure in its origin. Consequently, we can’t touch or hold it, but we can proclaim and live it, because it’s real.
How does truth become part of humanity, you may ask. In a word—faith. “Now faith is the reality of what is hoped for, the proof of what is not seen” ( Hebrews 11:1 CSB ). In this verse, two words, reality and proof, relate to faith understandably. Even though we can’t hold faith in our hands, the reality of our faith moves the unseen to produce the seen.
Then, there’s the word proof. As a result of individual faith, the impossible becomes possible. The unaccomplishable happens without human interference because of divine involvement. God is moving in our midst by answering prayers. The Lord saw what we couldn’t do through man or medicine, so He took action.
Faith is man’s avenue to God, heaven, and today’s miracles. Believe in the Father, trust in Jesus and allow the Holy Spirit to work. The Trinity working together, performs the faith action. Sometimes it is God alone doing the activity, and other times he’s working through a person.
Enoch started walking with God at age 65. He continued his godly walk for an additional 300 years. Then, the Lord transported him to heaven, avoiding the grave (Genesis 5:21, 24).
Noah was blameless among men because he walked with God. The Lord spared Noah and his family during the flood because of his walk (Genesis 6:9). Job walked by the Lord’s light (Job 29:3).
In the New Testament, III John commended Gaius and the church in his house for their walk in the truth (versus three and four).
The will to walk in the truth is proof to the world Jesus is real. The reality of our salvation enables us to walk and talk in a manner pleasing to our Lord.
