|Jesus the Truth|

Jesus himself declares that he is “The Truth” in John 14:6. This is the absolute form of the truth.
Everything we hear or think is an abridgement of the truth. We function with our version of what truth is. It is a collection of things we feel have established themselves as trustworthy, and we then in turn filter everything new through this filter of our truth.
In trying to comprehend truth as spoken of by Christ we are hamstrung by this filter that measures everything by our truth. This prevents us from fully seeing the truth as it is. If we totally understood the statement made by Christ when He said “I Am The Truth,” then our faith would be perfected.
We would then be capable to believe without any contradiction. Our prayer life would be transformed and answered prayer would be guaranteed.
Within our truth filter is doubt and unbelief, and as we peruse the scripture it is processed through the inability to accept without question the words as presented. This results in a form of warfare within our soul that creates an aura of questioning in all of our relationships with GOD. This is because we are using our natural wisdom to evaluate “The Truth” as GOD sees it.
How to get beyond this and grasp the fullness of truth one must leave the truth as presented by the soul and allow one’s spirit to communicate with GOD.
Because our spiritual communication is oft times very limited, we tend to be soulish by nature. The big question is; How is this overcome by the normal everyday believer?
I can’t fully answer this, the best I can do is to offer something to think about and see where it takes you.
We often find ourselves in the same position as the father did when he asked Jesus to heal his son. Jesus’ response was “If you can believe all things are possible,” to which the father answered “I believe help my unbelief.” Mark 9:23-24.
What he needed was to build himself up and the answer to do that is found in Jude 1:20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit.
You will need to read the answer offered here over and over until you see that this is what you must do.
What happens when you really and sincerely pray in the Spirit is the exercise of the spiritual language given to you when you received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.
Keep these things in mind; 1Corinthians 14:2, 4. 14, 15 For he that speaks in an unknown tongue speaks not unto men, but unto God. One who speaks in a tongue edifies himself. For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays. What is it then? I will pray with the spirit.
Using your Spiritual language to talk to GOD is the communication of your spirit to the Spirit of GOD the result being that you will be built up in faith. This is where many problems are solved as GOD speaks to your spirit.
