- Revelation 14:5
And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.
– Revelation 14:5
This verse tells us the behavior of those who follow the footprints of the Lamb. This group of people are honest and beloved by God. No lie or crookedness or deceit is found in their mouth, and in their heart they magnify God, do not rebel against or resist Him. They can obey and fear God in everything, be of one heart and one mind with Him, and worship Him in spirit and in truth. They are the overcomers who are judged and cleansed by God in the last days. However, we have been deeply corrupted by Satan. In our heart we always consider or plan for our own interests, deceive those above and below us; and we always tell lies and deceive others. How can God like such deceitful people? How can such people enter the? From this verse, we can know that to be honest people who are purified by God is the goal and direction we should seek.
God says, “You ought to know that God likes an honest man. God has the substance of faithfulness, and so His word can always be trusted. Furthermore, His actions are faultless and unquestionable. This is why God likes those who are absolutely honest with Him. Honesty means to give your heart to God; never to play Him false in anything; to be open with Him in all things, never hiding the truth; never to do that which deceives those above and deludes those below; and never to do that which merely ingratiates yourself with God. In short, to be honest is to refrain from impurity in your actions and words, and to deceive neither God nor man.”
