RE: The Truth about The Truth
I think I've said this before, and it seems kind of obvious, I know, but... the Truth is 'That Which Is;' there can't really be any other way about it. If it 'is' in any way, then it has to be 'true.' It would ultimately be 'true' then, that you are lying, according to your own representation of 'reality'... so the fact of the lie is really irrelevant to the basic truth, anyway, which would seem to be that, in having lied, you are aware of attempting to manipulate an opposite condition, which we can represent as 'truth,' or 'that which is,' as opposed to 'that which is not,' ie, the lie... so that you betray your own position as to 'everything being a lie.'
You testify against yourself, when you lie... and very effectively, I might add... AND when you give up an opposite position from 'truth' (or, lying), you will have gone a long way toward giving up your 'duality,' or the division of your own Word, the 'breaking of the sword of the mouth into halves,' so to speak. It has to be reforged, of course, into a single Word, that is only Truth... that is, and has, the power to conquer, and with which the One who Conquers rides forth... it is written that he conquers by the 'sword of his mouth.'
And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
Interestingly, Truth is represented as Thunder, and so it would seem that, at the opening of one of the seals, the Truth will be made fairly apparent... the truth already is, as it is... the sword is in the stone, so to speak, and who will pull it out to use it?
Repent therefore: but if not, I come to thee quickly, and I will make war with them with the sword of my mouth. He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. To him that overcomes, to him will I give of the hidden manna; and I will give to him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written, which no one knows but he that receives it.
He made my mouth like a sharpened sword, in the shadow of his hand he hid me; he made me into a polished arrow and concealed me in his quiver.
...what is this which is written in the Tanakh, `'The very rock which the builders rejected has become the cornerstone’?
The Light shineth in Darkness, and the Darkness comprehendeth it not...
