Rev. 21:8 - ("But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the polluted,the murderers, the fornicators, the sorcerers, the idolaters, and all liars,their place will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which isthe second death.") - This literally means there is real fire and brimstone.Hell now is not a literal fire. The 2nd death is a lake of fire, this isnot symbolic. All liars will have their part in the lake of fire. Rev. 22:15- ("Outside are the dogs and sorcerers and fornicators and murderersand idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.") Thereis a difference between telling a lie and loving and practicing lying. Ifyou love lying it is a different thing - you can't get that paid for - thereis no atonement - it is premeditated love for lying - practicing it.
There is a vast difference between bearing false witness and concealingthe truth. Bearing false witness is against the law - the 10 Commandments.You can't continue breaking the 10 Commandments without going to death.Your conscience will accuse you. Romans 2:15 - ("They show that whatthe law requires is written on their hearts, to which their own consciencealso bears witness; and their conflicting thoughts will accuse or perhapsexcuse them." Prov. 19:9 - ("A false witness will not go unpunished,and the liar will perish.") Rev. 3:5-11 We will be confronted withthis - We must judge it right.
Ex. 20:16 - ("You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.")- Lying under oath when it hurts someone else when you are trying to getout of something. Bearing false witness will send you to the 2nd death.There is a difference between bearing false witness and concealing a matter(not telling the truth) that others have forfeited their right to know becauseof their hostile and evil attitude toward God. King Saul forfeited his rightto know about Samuel's visit to anoint the new king. 1 Sam. 16:1,2,4 Wehave to make that judgment - If someone told a malicious lie or not. Thecourt would say it was a lie because they would think they had a right toknow. Saul forfeited his right to know. Samuel's reason was to anoint theking so the sacrifice was a diversion. But it didn't hurt anyone becauseSaul forfeited his right to know because of his actions. We must understandthis and pass it on to our children in the right way. Sometimes we makea stand with the truth by not revealing the truth or by our answers thatare or are not true. Since we respect and honor all authority from God weknow to whom and when to honor it for we must all stand at the judgmentseat of Messiah for what we did in the Body. Our definition of lying meansthe intentional deception of those who had a right to know. They need toknow for the sake of justice and righteousness - then we are obligated totell them the truth.
Lying constitutes maliciousness. That goes against your conscience whichdefiles you and condemns you if you know the truth. In these situationswe must continue in the work and the truth will set us free so our consciencewon't condemn us when we do something right. You may however pay the costof deliberately concealing a matter of information.
Abraham, Isaac, Moses, Rahab, Samuel - did they have the obligation to tellthe devil the truth? Are we obligated to tell the devil the truth? Do thecourts have the right to know what you know? And what will the outcome be?Where are your friends? Who will suffer unjustly by your knowledge? We mustjudge these things right so our conscience can be programmed right. Is itwarfare that we are engaged in? * It needs to be warfare - does your answerhurt someone else who is innocent? * It is according to warfare. Lying ismore than intentional deception. Telling the truth may cause serious harmto an innocent party. Such intentional deception may be moral and must bedetermined by judging if someone has a moral right to know the truth forjustice sake. Heb. 11:31 - ("By faith Rahab the prostitute did notperish with those who were disobedient, because she had received the spiesin piece.")
Rahab was commended not rebuked for receiving the spies. If she had toldthe truth it would not have been for justice, but for injustice. We areobligated by our conscience and the Holy Spirit to always tell the truth.What constitutes the truth? Not telling the truth (in certain cases) isnot a lie then. Truth is truth. Not telling the truth to someone who doesn'tdeserve the truth isn't lying. Telling the truth in certain circumstancesmay do serious harm to an innocent party. If they knew the truth it wouldn'talways be justice by what they would do with their evil intentions.
We are obligated by our conscience and the Holy Spirit to always tell thetruth, but we are not obligated to tell the truth to those who have forfeitedtheir right to know by their obvious evil intentions.
Ex. 3:18 The essence of falsehood is the intention to deceive. Was God andMoses lying? Or did Pharaoh have a right to know the truth? He had hostileintentions so he had no right. Will the government have right to know whenwe flee? We aren't obligated to them - do we have to ask permission? Thereis a vast difference between concealing a matter and telling a lie and deliberatelymisleading the enemy during warfare. Warfare is the determining factor.The enemy in warfare does not have the right to know the truth. Becausewhat would happen if they knew the truth?
In light of Rev. 21:8 and 22:15 and the Commandment in Ex. 20:13 is whatwe by all means want to avoid - bearing false witness, hurting an innocentperson. At the Raid, the state didn't have the right to have the names ofthe elders and the children to carry out a grossly unlawful scheme. We arenot to ever break the commandment to bear false witness against our neighbors.Our Father is showing us what His ways are. Our ways aren't always His ways.We were raised outside His ways and don't always know His ways. Prov. 8:7-9,11 Sam.22:26 Someone can use your own principles in you for their own evilmotives. It is the glory of YHWH to conceal a matter. Prov. 25:2 This addsdiscretion and wisdom to our life and the apostolic teaching.
There is no higher ethic or allegiance than to have love in your heart foryour brothers and sisters. The ultimate allegiance is to have love for them.This is how you passed out of death into life, and how to obey the new commandmentto love one another.
