Another characteristic God hates is a false witness that speaketh lies. A false witness is someone who deliberately lies about something that they have seen, heard or experienced. A false witness has in his/her heart intent to deceive the hearer; a false witness cannot be trusted and a false witness eventually won’t be able to stand because his lies will be revealed before all. Now we often have a hard time dealing with false witnesses or liars, but how many times have we lied to God about ourselves? How many times have we told God that we were going to do better the next time when we knew in our hearts the whole time that we had no intention of turning away from the sin that so easily besets us? How many times have we thought one thing about ourselves only to discover that God was trying to show us that the picture we have in our minds about ourselves is just not true? However, we ignore the truth that God is trying to show us about ourselves. Yes it is true that God hates a false witness that speaketh lies, however, as Christians let’s be sure that we are not speaking lies to God about who we are in Christ Jesus. Allow God to define who you are through His word because you are somebody in Christ Jesus; don’t allow your flesh, the world, your job, or even your friends and associates to define who you are because that may be a lie, and we know how God feels about liars.
God Bless You!
