Truth, Light and the Internet

 

Psalms 43:3 O send out your light and your truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto your holy hill, and to your tabernacles.

Psalms 85:10 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. 11 Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.

What is truth ?

Facts of course,but beyond the contrast of true and false there is an allusion to the grand design wherein the powers of the universe were commanded by the tenderness of love to form the earth and all else that is...

To form a harmony, a chorus, of the infinitely intricate ...

A compilation of the beautiful, the kind, the finest and the best of sentiment that God can give.

Truth is not bounded by the false and the dark, but is the loving, luminous evidence of a limitless economy of power to compassionately will every particle into the whole ...

An awesome and passionate provisioning of the past and future.

Gen. 32:10 I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all the truth, which you have showed unto your servant; ...

John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

John 14:6 Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me.

"Full of grace and truth" means immensely more than kind to God's creatures ("full of grace") and not a liar ("full of truth").

Jesus, the human reflection of the perfection of God, must have radiated an aura of charisma,beauty, health,wit, wisdom and clever thinking.

Who knows how many inventions he thought of but never spoke of.

Psalms 15:1 LORD, who shall abide in your tabernacle? who shall dwell in your holy hill? 2 He that walks uprightly, and works righteousness, and speaks the truth in his heart.

Jesus was the first of those who will dwell in that holy hill.

The truth is like a wonderfully drawn, living, breathing (almost) map. Let us take a look at its beauty and symbology.

First we must orient the map correctly in time and space and place ourselves correctly on the map.

The most beautifully perfect map, held upside down, is at best confusing and
not knowing where one is on that map makes it totally useless to direct one's steps.
 
John 8:32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
 
Only when you understand the truth map and its symbology can you use it to navigate to freedom.

The truth map and its symbols, when fully understood, show every way, every highway, every city, every mountain and hill, every river and sea, every rock and tree.

Let's take a look at some of the more famous points of interest on this truth map.

The way:

John 14:5 Thomas said unto him, Lord, we know not whither you go; and how can we know the way? 6 Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me.

A highway:

Proverbs 16:17 The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keeps his way preserves his soul.
 
Isaiah35:8 And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. 9 No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:

A city and mountain:

Zech 8:3 Thus said the LORD; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and the mountain (Kingdom) of the LORD of hosts the holy mountain (God's kingdom).
 
Zech 8:8 And I will bring them, and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God, in truth and in righteousness.
 
Psalms 25:5 Lead me in your truth, and teach me: for you are the God of my salvation; on you do I wait all the day.

Rocks:

Matt. 16:18 And I say also unto you, That you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
 
Romans 9:33 As it is written, Behold, I lay in Zion a stumblingstone and rock of offense: and whosoever believes on him shall not be ashamed.
 
1 Cor 10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

Some trees and a paradise:

Gen 2:9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
 
Proverbs 3:18 She (wisdom) is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retains her.
 
Song of Solomon 2:3 As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit (fruits of the spirit) was sweet to my taste.
 
Rev 2:7 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit said unto the churches; To him that overcomes will I give to eat of the tree of life (or grove of trees which represents Jesus and His Bride) which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
 
Rev 22:2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

Rivers, fountains, valleys, pools, springs and trees:

Isaiah 41:18 I will open rivers (used as landmarks) in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water (Restitution blessings). 19 I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, and the pine, and the box tree together: 20 That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the LORD has done this, and the Holy One of Israel has created it.
 
Zech 14:8 And it shall be in that day, that living waters (Restitution blessings) shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.

Heavens, mountains and a forest:

Isaiah 44:23 Sing, O you heavens; for the LORD has done it: shout, you lower parts of the earth: break forth into singing, you mountains, O forest, and every tree therein: for the LORD has redeemed Jacob, and glorified himself in Israel.

The truth map is indestructible.

Psalms 100:5 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endures to all generations.
Psalms 117:2 For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endures for ever.

Different Kinds of Light to Lead Us On This Map:

Light on and from the truth map.

Beautiful but informationless until it reflects from the map.

Electromagnetic radiation

Gen 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
 
Ecclesiastes 11:7 Truly the light is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to behold the sun:

Truth:

Psalms 104:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, you are very great; you are clothed with honor and majesty. 2 Who covers himself with light as with a garment (The source of all truth): who stretches out the heavens like a curtain:
 
1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanses us from all sin.
 
John 3:20 For every one that does evil hates the light, neither comes to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that does truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
 
Job 18:5 Yea, the light of the wicked shall be put out, and the spark of his fire shall not shine. 6 The light shall be dark in his tabernacle, and his candle shall be put out with him.
 
Psalms 89:15 Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of your countenance.
 
Isaiah 51:4 Hearken unto me, my people; and give ear unto me, O my nation: for a law shall proceed from me, and I will make my judgment to rest for a light of the people.
 
John 12:36 While you have light, believe in the light, that you may be the children of light.

Source of wisdom and deliverer of truth.

Isaiah 10:17 And the light of Israel shall be for a fire, and his Holy One for a flame: and it shall burn and devour his thorns and his briers in one day;
 
Psalms 36:9 For with you is the fountain of life: in your light shall we see light.
 
Matt 5:14 You are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it gives light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
 
Acts 13:47 For so has the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set you to be a light of the Gentiles, that you should be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.

Light as a function of time:

Isaiah 58:8 Then shall your light break forth as the morning, and your health shall spring forth speedily: and your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the LORD shall be your reward.
 
Zech 14:6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark: 7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.
 
Matt 4:16 The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death, light is sprung up.

 

Wonderful, beautiful and awesome, But what does it have to do with the Internet?

Isaiah 58:1 Arise, shine; for your light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. 2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon you, and his glory shall be seen upon you. 3 And the Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.
 
Micah 4:2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
 
How will the word of the Lord go forth?
How are the people going to come??
How will this be seen?

 

50 billion people in Israel?

If all the 50 billion or so people that ever lived on this earth are resurrected and are to be taught as Micah 4:2 states, there must be a way to hear and see other than being physically present to hear the truth message. Also, Micah 4:2 states that "the law shall go forth". By what means can the law "go forth"?

By radio frequency signals? A TV broadcast transmitter, in Israel, broadcasting a signal powerful enough to reach the other side of the earth would cause serious bodily harm to any living creature near it, in addition to sending most of its signal off to the stars instead of to Asia. No sane person is thinking of such a plan. To solve this problem, a digital signal could be distributed to many local TV stations around the world where the signal levels would be more manageable. However, this solution still omits any possibility of personal interaction with the message and searching or forwarding the program material is out of the question. The digital Internet has none of these problems.

A SONET for the Truth

SONET stands for Synchronous Optical NETwork. This is the system for the digital Optical transmission of data over the backbone or trunk lines that make up the internet. Light is guided by optical fibers as fine as human hair or less from Israel to all parts of the world. And from all parts of the world to Israel. And from all parts of the world to all other parts of the world. No other "broadcast" system can hope to do such networking! THIS is where light and truth come together.

Copyrights?

Will God Put limits and fetters on HIS truth which will "go forth"? NO! Copyrighting a work only serves to prohibit the distribution and/or alteration of the work unless a price is paid. Jesus paid, on the cross, the only price that will ever be put on the truth and light of God's word. The copyright notices that are seen in the front of many bibles are an affront to all that was FREELY given from God and an effort to levy a toll on a God given freeway so to speak.

Copyleft, which prohibits charging for the text or even its presentation and seeks to guarantee the fidelity of the author's thoughts and words, is much, much more appropriate for the truth and light that will flow so generously and lovingly through Israel from our heavenly father. It is in this spirit that all the contents of this site are attributed the copyleft status.

And speaking of copies, the digital media of the Internet permit and promote copies of copies to the nth generation with complete fidelity in every respect. The 10th generation copy of a QuickTime digital movie will have 100% of the quality it had in the original. The 10th generation copy of a VHS video tape will have lost most of its program and become mostly noise. This means that the truth and beauty of God's word will be maintained as we share it with our friends and as our friends share it with their friends ad infinitum.

What can be on the Internet?

Problems with paper.

A paperless world?

May God Add His Blessing
