What Is Truth? By Larry

p,s,  I believe this was Larry Bray’s last message that he wrote and it is a good one:

Truth What Is Truth?
Interesting Question.

Let’s see if we can find the answer because it is a question that needs to be answered. Well, do we have to go to church to find the answer? I would say not because the church is full of idols and if they are full of idols we can not find the answer there. Because God hates idols and where there are idols there will no truth or God.
So if it is not there where can find the truth. You never will find truth from some man standing behind a pulpit.
Well the word of God says Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. So the first step is study. The second step is rightly dividing the word. So what else will help us find truth. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. Now this says we need the Spirit of truth that will guide us into all truth. So we need this Spirit of truth? How do we get the Spirit of truth that will be our guide? If I remember right our friend and brother in Christ had something to say about this when he was talking to Jesus and Jesus asked him a question. When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?
And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the 
prophets.
He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not 
revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell 
shall not prevail against it.
And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth 
shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
So we see here that Jesus said ” this Spirit did not come from flesh and blood” but we see in this reading
Jesus gave Peter the keys to kingdom heaven. So if Peter has the keys to the kingdom of heaven to bind and loose things on earth God would stand by him on what he said. So Peter is the one that has the Spirit of Truth and we also must have the same spirit of truth. So let’s see what brother Peter has to tell us about receiving that spirit of truth. If I remember right Peter told us in the book of Acts 2nd chapter.

But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all 
ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:For these are not drunken, as 
ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day. But this is that which was spoken by the prophet 
Joel; And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and 
your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men 
shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; 
and they shall prophesy ( Peter said this Spirit will be poured out on all flesh. It will be all, the young, old, 
male or female. Peter said that it was spoken of in Joel. So let’s go to Joel and see what the prophet had to say about this Spirit that will be poured out upon all flesh. “The word of the Lord that came to Joel the son of Pethuel. Hear this, ye old men, and give ear, all ye inhabitants of the land. Hath this been in your days, or even in the days of your fathers? Tell ye your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation”…. so it went from generation to generation and on down the line according to
Joel 1:1 Now since Peter was telling what Spirit it was that would cause servants, handmaidens to prophesy,
old men to dream dreams and young men to see visions. But let’s move forward with what Peter said. He said still in the book of Acts which is the only place we can find the new birth. “And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where 
they were sitting.
And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them 
utterance” So this new birth was given to the 120 that was in the upper room as directed by Jesus. He 
(Jesus) said ” But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses
unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth”.
So let’s move forward again and let’s see what Peter had to say how we receive this Spirit as they did in that 
upper room. ” Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made the same Jesus, whom 
ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.
Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, 
Men and brethren, what shall we do? Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our 
God shall call.
And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation”.
So we see here that this is showing from generation to generation that was spoken of by Joel the prophet.
They also were pricked in their heart and said “what must we do” Not only did Peter say it he had men and brethren that were with him. I say rightly dividing the word ” these that was with Peter was the same ones in that upper room. So from the upper vs Peter said ” that this Spirit comes by what he said. Now, remember Peter was the one that had the keys. See, let me say this ” Peter had the keys as many and not the key. 
Yes, he had the keys and now I got the keys and if you experience as the ones in that upper room you have the keys and from generation to generation will have that keys. Now I know there are many that will believe what I am going to say. But we also as Peter have the “keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven”. Yes, we have the same power and Spirit that those that were in that upper room. Jesus also had to
have this spirit which is called ” Holy Ghost”

And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, 
which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.
And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him
There is the 3 witness that is a perfect witness showing baptism, and the Holy Ghost. I know lots of you say
Holy Spirit but the KJV which I use and also you should use says Holy Ghost. Why do you not say ” Holy 
Ghost are you afraid of it? 
Now that we got the Spirit of God, which you must have to see what I am going to show you now.
So we are looking for ” Truth and what is truth? 
And the woman said to Elijah, Now by this I know that thou art a man of God, and that the word of the Lord 
in thy mouth is truth ( Elijah is a shadow and types Jesus Christ. The scripture said the “word of the Lord in 
thy mouth is truth. So we can see from this that someone had the word of truth coming from his mouth.
Jesus said that he was praying “I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they
are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my 
glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou 
hast sent me. And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast 
loved me may be in them, and I in them.
In the above, Jesus was praying and he said Sanctify them through thy truth:thy word is true. Now, who was he praying to? Of course even the simple-minded can see this. He was praying to God. We also see that 
Sanctification comes from the word of God or truth. He also said ” I have given them thy word”
So the ones that he has given the words to are speaking as in the above vs said And the woman said to 
Elijah, Now by this I know that thou art a man of God, and that the word of the Lord in thy mouth is truth. The word that I Larry Bray speak coming from my mouth is truth. Because it is not me speaking but it is the word of the Lord coming from my mouth. 
I am in he as he is God and he is me. So the word I speak is the truth.

Jesus also said “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the 
Father, but by me. ( Does this mean Jesus is God. Certainly not. If Jesus is God so am I. Because it said above That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my 
glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou 
hast sent me. And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast 
loved me may be in them, and I in them.
There is a false teaching that Jesus is God. But when asked them to prove it with scripture they go blank minded. I proved all that in this message with the scriptures. 
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for 
instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
