In the Bible, Pilate says to Jesus, what is truth? It must have been an interesting sight to see, being the Author of this world to hear those words. Unless the Author already knew what was going to happen. Hmm. Now that’s something to consider. In Luke chapter 9, we learn of a certain man that says to Jesus, “I will follow you wherever you go.” The Word in the Flesh turns to him and says, “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of man has nowhere to lay his head.”
What could He possibly have meant by these words? Is there any way for us to gain understanding into what is being said? Yes there is. And the answers are in the Bible. Before we get deeper into the meaning, we first need to understand more about Jesus Christ. And nothing about the following verses have changed today. And that causes me to weep, bitterly. “He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.” – Isaiah 53:3-6.
As previously said, those verses still apply today. So, I will ask you again, what is truth? Is the Bible true, or is man? Does the Word lie? Does GOD lie? Or, do we? “He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief.” Many may say that they know the Lord. Many will claim that their earthly lives have somehow gotten better after finding Jesus Christ. What does the Bible tell us? “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” “Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.” “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” “For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.”
What is truth in the Bible? “For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.” – Matthew 10:35-37. Now, prepare yourselves. Grab a box of tissues. Say a little prayer. If you desire to know the Lord more than you desire this world, if you desire to know the LORD GOD, in a similar way as I do, watch the following 30 minute video. Just as Pilate said to Jesus, what is truth? Here is only a small glimpse into that understanding, within the pages of the Bible.

“My harp also is turned to mourning, and my organ into the voice of them that weep.” “Behold, their valiant ones shall cry without: the ambassadors of peace shall weep bitterly.” “Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.” “Lament like a virgin girded with sackcloth for the husband of her youth.” To add even more to this understanding click on the following link, Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. “Because thine heart was tender, and thou didst humble thyself before God, when thou heardest his words against this place, and against the inhabitants thereof, and humbledst thyself before me, and didst rend thy clothes, and weep before me; I have even heard thee also, saith the LORD.” – 2 Chronicles 34:27.
“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” – Revelation 21:4.
