How wonderful it would be to know someone who no matter what question you have or situation you’re in they would be straight forward in answering and not pull any punches. It is hard to find such a one in the flesh as man has many levels of lying and even if it is not a huge lie they will call it a white lie as though this would null it as being a lie. God on the other hand will NEVER LIE about anything and we can fully trust Him in the word sent us for our good. (Numbers 23:19). God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?
We can always depend upon God, and thank Him for sending Jesus who is the High Priest over His house that we as believers are a part of. He Is Faithful that promised to keep us by faith in His Son for He does not lie. (Hebrews 10:21-23). And having an high priest over the house of God; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering.
Some do not realize the Holy Spirit within the believer is having a part of God within us, as Peter said to An-a-ni’-as and Sapphira who sold a possession yet held back part of the price when they laid it at the apostles’ feet that they were not lying to him but to God. We see here that not only does God not lie, but He cannot be lied to! (Acts 5:1-4). But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession,And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles’ feet.But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.
Jesus always told it like it was, and when the pharisees claimed to be of God the Father Jesus did not hesitate to tell them they were of their father the devil! He clearly tells them their father is a liar (John 8:42-47) Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.

We take God’s honesty for granted, but we shouldn’t. It’s a blessing to have a God, who holds the whole universe in his hand, that we can count on to keep his promises. It would be scary if we couldn’t trust in what he said. Thank you for reminding us of this!
So true Mary. We can confidently believe in God who is always faithful to His promises and never lies. God Bless and Keep you Always.
