A Promise For You From Bible Promises:
Topic: Seven Abominations Unto God. Pt Six [19/05/2017]
A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren. Proverbs 6:19. Read: Pro 6:12-15
Because God is the truth, He loves those that speak and abide in the truth. Today, let’s look at the sixth thing that God hates with passion.
6) A false witness that speaks lies. In our world today, false witnesses have grown in numbers than anything else. For the monetary benefits, many have shed innocent blood by witnessing falsely. Many have lost their dear lives to this false witness. What is false witness? False witness is to deliberately stand against the truth in a matter to condemn the righteous or the justified. False witness perverts justice and justifies the wicked. When you speak or stand against the truth to the detriment of another person, you are a false witness and since you’ve told lies and the Bible says, all liars are candidate of hell fire, it means if you don’t retrace your steps back to God in genuine repentance, you might find yourself there.
If you have borne false witness against anyone before (whether the person is dead or alive), God demands you restitute your ways now because if you die in it, you can’t make it to heaven and heaven is the goal of all children of God. Say the truth even when it hurts you for it is better to be rejected for saying the truth than to be loved for bearing false witness.
* Father, in any way I have witnessed against my neighbour falsely, I ask for forgiveness in Jesus Mighty Name.
