Who Is The Liar?
Who Is The Liar?
The liar is the one who denies that Jesus Christ is Lord and the only way to eternal life, the forgiveness of sin and salvation. Such a person is against Christ rather than for Christ so he is called the antichrist.
22 Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist-he denies the Father and the Son. 23 No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also. 1 John 2:22-23
In Matthew 25, Jesus speaks of sheep and goats. Which one is the liar – the sheep or the goat?
31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
Here is what the King says to the sheep (the people knowing truth) on HIS right.
34 Then the King will say to those on his right, “Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.”
Here is what the King says to the goats (people those believing lies) on HIS left.
41 Then he will say to those on his left, “Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.”
Jesus speaks of a King who will sit on HIS THRONE and make judgment. HE will determine and separate the sheep from the goats. The sheep are the followers of Christ who know Jesus is the only way to salvation, redemption, the forgiveness of sin, reconciliation with Father God, and eternal life. The goats are the liars who believe there are many ways to eternal life, they believe they can earn their salvation by good works and good deeds, they believe that God is a fair God and will not punish a good person, and they believe all religions are ways to get to GOD and heaven.
Jesus is inclusive. HE invites ALL to sit at HIS ROYAL TABLE at HIS RIGHT. The invitation is to whomever – the poor, the weak, the broken-hearted, the proud, the arrogant, the bankrupt, the divorced, the lame, the abused, the religious, the self-righteous, the good, the bad, the accused, the liars, the cursed, the rapists, the murderers, the thieves and to ALL. But not everyone accepts the invitation. He who refuses is called a liar because he denies Jesus Christ.
