I’ve been a believer in Jesus most of my life. Lately I’ve been having thoughts that He may not be the truth. I say to myself it doesn’t matter if He isn’t the truth I’m still following Him but then that becomes scary. I feel fear because if He isn’t the truth and I follow Him anyway I’m doomed. Thinking this way feels wrong. This request for help feels a little weird to me too because while this thought process is in my head another one is too which is “no Jesus is the truth and I don’t have anything to worry about”. That’s the one I feel peace about except when the other thought wants to immediately come into my mind. I hear the love of Jesus and it just makes me want that but then something comes to make me feel afraid that He isn’t really the truth. I’m tired of going back and forth on it. There seems to be some confusion or something In my understanding or something. I want to live confidently for Jesus and thats seeming impossible. It sounds like I’ve got two minds. I hate it. I feel frustrated. This has been going on for about a year. I don’t want to go to Hell and when I read the Bible I can feel something inside of me just love it but then those thoughts…people have to me to cast them down but if something is trying to tell you it’s a 50/50 chance you’ll go to heaven if Jesus isn’t really the truth then it get kinda hard to cast the thoughts down because I feel Like I have to not care that I might end up in hell if Jesus really isn’t the truth. I know I still need to cast it down so I try but it still feels scary. I just need help and don’t know where to go or what to say to get the help I need. I feel like I know too much too about God and feeling His love and having answered prayer and feeling His presence. I don’t understand what’s going on with me. I’m so upset. I’m depressed most days. I’m struggling to keep right thoughts. Most of them are “how would you know this is really the truth if…” or “but you don’t really know for sure if it the truth if…” I need help today for the rest of my life. I want Jesus and I can’t understand why it’s so hard for me to have Him.gracenotes007Prayers: 83Requests: 4

Dear one: The enemy whispers lots of stuff to us but we do not need to take it in. Obviously this is the enemy trying to hook you – of course God is Truth. It doesn’t bring you comfort or encouragement to believe the lie being whispered in your ear, so it isn’t from God. You can resist the enemy and he will fear. “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and love, and a SOUND MIND.” Abba: I ask that you be present with this, your child, who needs your strength and discernment. Teach this person that we hear the voice of the Shepherd and recognize His voice. The voice of the enemy does not bring peace. Holy Spirit, I am asking you to begin teaching self-defense, but more than that, offensive battle. Teach the whole armor of God – the Sword of the Spirit – Your Word, the breastplate of righteousness, the shield of faith, which keeps those fiery darts from us, the helmet of salvation, and on our feet the shoes of the Gospel of Peace. Teach this child of God to search the scriptures on hearing the WORD of God. I REBUKE the enemy from speaking to him/her in the NAME OF JESUS. Your plan is exposed and chopped at the roots. Child of God, spend no more time on this – turn your back on this line of thought and walk into the plan God has for you in this life. I pray all of this in Jesus’ Matchless Name. Amen.sparrowPrayers: 2305Requests: 4

It seems like you need to consider “Is the Bible true” A lot has been written on this. “More than a Carpenter” is a very easy read. The hundreds of Old Testament prophecies concerning a coming Messiah fulfilled in Jesus have to be considered.
Messiah Would Be . . . Prophesied Fulfilled
Born of a virgin, Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:25
Born in Bethlehem, Micah 5:2 Matthew 2:1, 6
Betrayed for 30 pieces of silver Zechariah 11:12 Matthew 26:15, 49
Have clothing divided at the Cross Psalm 22:18 John 19:24
Wounded for our sins Isaiah 53:5 1 Peter 2:24
Killed for others Daniel 9:26 2 Corinthians 5:21
Raised from the dead Psalm 16:10 Luke 24
Another question to consider is “Why study the Bible.” If you are convinced the Bible is God’s Word to us, still do we need to study it? Isn’t being good, good enough? If a child wants to please its parents can it just do what it thinks is good. Doesn’t the child need to listen to the parent to know what is pleasing? We, when we are saved, are still immature. We need instruction in righteousness, discipline, to learn what is right and what is wrong in God’s eyes.
Another question to consider is, Have I put away all that was false from my old life when I did not know God. As you listen to the New Testament you will see some believers bringing their old occult books together and burning them. It may seem extreme, but those things were used by satan to deceive them.
Another consideration, Do I know I am now in a war? Do I know how to protect myself from the enemy?
Here’s a good link at putting on the armor and more. https://wildatheart.org/pray

Dear Help!, I hear your bewildered soul crying out for two reasons: you being a life long church goer and follower have recently been experiencing or acknowledging a conflicts within a) what is logically the truth, and b) why am I having these impulsive thoughts that Jesus is not the truth, where are they coming from, and what can I do about it. Is this correct? Also, I assume you have talked to your pastor and family members that you trust, but nothing they have shared has been helpful. Note: I have been a believer for 30 years, but found that for much of that walk w the Lord, parts of me were highly defensive and that true Love for myself and all aspects within me was advancing, but slowly compared to the last two years when I was introduced to Internal Family Systems a psychotherapy that fundamental believes that truth and love are core and part of integrated spiritual and practical help for the soul and our relationships with others – and I would add with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Remember, perfect love casts out fear – but not as one casts out a demon, but as one turns on the light in a dark room and the truth of what is in the room is revealed. Therefore, I recommend the following three steps: 1) Ask the true Jesus to come and fill your soul and give you courage and wisdom and to protect you, 2) Ask your self what do the other thoughts protect you from? Write these down. (I believe there is some reason behind why the questions of Jesus being true are coming to part of you) There is much more I could write, but the goal of our life is to love the Lord our God, and our neighbor as our self. Thus, take courage and love w compassion even that dark part with in your mind and history and let it know that it’s purpose once it knows your full acceptance in Christ will be transformed and given a new purpose and life in the character of our merciful Savior. If you find this too difficult, be patient and kind to yourself and ask the Lord to talk to talk to the broken part. Blessing.spiritdoc1Prayers: 98Requests: 12

We walk this journey by Faith not by feelings. Jesus said in I am the way the truth and life. No one comes to the father except by me. John 14:6 Read, memorize HIS word. Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life.No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6goingupsoonPrayers: 2138Requests: 79

Dear friend, Satan comes as a thief. to steal, kill, and to destroy. St. Jn.10:10. Jesus, on the other hand, came that we might have life. Your struggle, can be traced back to the garden. The devils MO, is to get us to question God. This is how he tripped up Adam, And Eve and caused them to sin. His tactics, are always the same. Most often, he will attempt to get us to doubt whether what God has said, is true or not.
You have the Holy Spirit to guide you. And He is. The thoughts that bring you peace, are from Him, The thoughts that ask you the question hath God said, and cloud your thinking with confusion, are not from God. They are from the enemy of our souls. Satan’s job is to deceive us into not believing that what the Bible teaches is really the truth. When you, as you have stated. Feel good when you read the Bible, and in doing so, it brings you comfort. That’s the Holy Spirit working in your heart. His job is to confirm to us the truth in God’s Holy book. And that we are His children.
You have discernment, you just need to learn how to operate in it. The Bible teaches us to let peace rule in our hearts as a umpire. Any thought, or voice that leads you/us to doubt God, and His Word, is not from God. The Spirit of God, will always point us to Jesus. Because, He is THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE!
Praying, that this gives you some clarity. The enemy, is attempting to deceive you, and get you to believe a lie.
5) “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thy own understanding. 6) In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths”. Pv. 3:5,6.
God is for you. He will lead you into all truth, by “The Spirit Of Truth”, who, dwells in you. Go with what brings you peace. Jesus, hath been made unto us peace. He will never lead you astray. Remember that Satan is the author of confusion. This truth, should tell you a lot.
Praying that God will make Himself so real to you, that you’ll be able to discern more easily when it’s Him, leading you.
Blessings, May His peace, grace, and mercy, go with you always.
in the name of Jesus. Amen!
