He That Doeth Truth Cometh To The Light

John 3:20-21, For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

Getting saved is a matter of accepting the truth. 
2nd Timothy 2:23-26, But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes. And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
I love this next Bible verse:
Colossians 1:5, “For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel;”
People who love their sins won't come to Christ, lest their deeds should be reproved (or spoken evil of). Jesus said in John 5:40 that “YE WILL NOT COME” unto me to have life, He didn't say YE CANNOT COME. Repentance and faith are a matter of someone acknowledging that they are a needy sinner, and believing on Jesus Christ to be saved. So getting saved is very much a matter of accepting the truth. Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the father, but by me.” In John 8:32 Jesus said the truth shall make you free, and then in verse 36 He says if the Son shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” Sin can only offer a lifetime of pleasure and temporary happiness, but since we all die, we can only be a servant in the house of sin for a short time; but since Jesus is alive forever, whosoever lives in Christ is alive forevermore. That is true freedom! That is what Jesus taught...
John 8:31-36, “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free? Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
That is beautiful. We already have eternal life, because Jesus is eternal life. 1st John 5:20, “And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.” The truth of the Gospel is what saves. The Bible has MUCH to say about THE TRUTH. Someone once asked me to sum up the Holy Bible in as few words as possible. I gave them just one word: “TRUTH”! John 17:17, “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” In John 18:27, Jesus told Pilate that He came into the world to bear witness unto THE TRUTH. In John 16:13, the Holy Spirit is called: the Spirit of truth.” 

In the New Testament we find the phrase “THE TRUTH mentioned 62 times! In the Old Testament we find those words, THE TRUTH,” mentioned 20 times! John 8:45, And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.I don't know about you dear friend, but I need THE TRUTH! I am a truth-seeker. The truth can be dealt with, but a lie cannot. I must have the truth! The Devil knows better than anyone, that if he can corrupt THE TRUTH of God's Word, then he can mislead people into all manner of deceptions and falsehoods, taking them to the Lake of Fire with him forever!!! We are living in a woeful generation of abominations, a terrible time of changing and tampering with the inspired Word of God, a wicked time of lies and deception like never before in human civilization. The Scripture foretold that evil men would do this:
Romans 1:20-25, “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”
What an amazing set of words: “THE TRUTH”! Homosexuals and liberals have changed THE TRUTH, that God created all humans either male or female (Genesis 1:27), into a lie. Wicked impostors in churches today have changed THE TRUTH, that salvation is simply by faith alone in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, into the lie of Lordship Salvation. The Devil's crowd have changed THE TRUTH of God's inspired preserved Word, into a bunch of counterfeit Bible revisions. Wicked Communists have changed THE TRUTH of God's Biblical creation, into the bogus blatant lies of manmade evolution. 

The Devil's hands have been very busy!!! Satan has changed and perverted THE TRUTH of the Gospel, the Word of God, human gender, and the origin of man, all INTO BIG LIE!!! The Devil has done these dastardly deeds to DECEIVE as many people as possible, to steer you away from God your Creator!!! The core foundation of happiness in life is to establish a proper relationship with one's divine Maker. Ecclesiastes 12:13-14, “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.”

Please understand that the phrase he that doeth truth in John 3:21 does not mean “good works.” Some proponents of the heresy of Lordship Salvation try to use this Scripture to justify their lies. The Bible doesn't say “he that doeth works.” If God meant “works,” He would have said “works”! God said what He meant, and meant what He said!!! God said, “HE THAT DOETH TRUTH”! Obviously truth is a thought and not a work. Wicked sinners refuse to acknowledge their sinnership before a holy God. In order to be saved, a person must come to their senses about sin, recognizing their need for redemption:
1st John 1:8-10, “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.”
It is popular in this gender-bending wicked generation, for liberals, kooks and sodomites to teach that homosexuality is not a sin. Instead they claim that they were born that way, and that God created them gay.” There was never a bigger lie told! Homosexuality is perverse, abnormal, against nature, confusing, offensive, filthy, disease-prone, disgusting and a very horrible sin in God's sight (Genesis 19: Leviticus 20:13; Romans 1; Colossians 3:5-6; Jude 1:7). Homosexuals and the heathen world are in willful denial of THE TRUTH! This is what “he that doeth the truth” means. This is repentance my friend!

Pastor Harry Ironside (1876-1951) beautifully explains it this way:
“Which comes first, repentance or faith? In Scripture we read, 'Repent ye, and believe the gospel.' Yet we find true believers exhorted to 'repent, and do the first works.' So intimately are the two related that you cannot have one without the other. The man who believes God repents; the repentant soul puts his trust in the Lord when the Gospel is revealed to him. Theologians may wrangle over this, but the fact is, no man repents until the Holy Spirit produces repentance in his soul through the truth. No man believes the Gospel and rests in it for his own salvation until he has judged himself as a needy sinner before God. And this is repentance.” ('Except Ye Repent,' p. 16) [emphasis added]
That is what Jesus meant in John 3:21, when he spoke these wonderful words of life to Nicodemus.
