What is the Truth?

God can bless and do whatever He wants with whomever He wants, whenever He wants.

He doesn’t need your parent’s permission, He doesn’t need your Pastor’s validation, your Boss’ authorization. When God is in it or over it whatever people think or say won’t matter.

Who and what have you placed before God?

Only looking for people to confirm what God ALREADY said. Their opinion is not necessary.

And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” – John 8:32

Commentary:

(32) And ye shall know the truth.—In the great Intercessory Prayer of John 17, Jesus prays for His disciples: “Sanctify them in the truth: Thy word is truth” (John 8:17). In the answer to the question of Thomas in John 14, He declares, “I am the way, the truth, and the life” (John 8:6). It is this thought that is present in the connection between continuance in His word and knowledge of the truth here. These Jews professed to know the truth, and to be the official expounders of it. They had yet to learn that truth was not only a system, but also a power; not only something to be written or spoken, but also something to be felt and lived. If they abide in His word they will indeed be His disciples; living the life of truth, they will gain perception of truth. “Being true,” they will “in love grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ” (Ephesians 4:15).
