revelation 19 11
Revelation 19:11

“Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True”

faithful and true
Faithful and True
  • Bible translations interpret ONE Hebrew word EMET as both the words “Faithful” and “Truth”.
  • Genesis 24:27 “His mercy and His truth” (NKJV).
  • Genesis 24:27 “his kindness and faithfulness” (NIV).

Sort of and Relative
  • Based on the Greek Philosopher Protagoras’ way of thinking that truth is found in our relationship between our thinking and the reality of the world around us. He taught that “Man is the measure of all things.”

  • Because it focuses on “ME” the definition of truth changes depending on my view point.

Under this Protagoras’ Greek form of thinking God becomes defined by how YOU view him with your culture and personal point of view.

Sort of and Relative
  • There is no absolute truth in this world view.
  • All religious views are considered equally true by them
  • Their ideal view of truth becomes tolerance or coexistence. 
  • Judaism and therefore Christianity are falsely seen as intolerant.

This has been sold to our culture as the truth…

but is it true?

The Faithful Truth- EMET

In the Hebrew/Christian word for “Truth” God is the center and not man (meaning you).


Aleph is the first letter of the Alephbet and represents the breath of God or our awareness of Him. Therefore truth begins with our awareness of God


The middle letter Mem in Hebrew was originally the symbol for water and is also understood to represent the Messiah. In Mem the Hebrew sees divine wisdom from the fountain of life itself which is God, the creator and king of the heavens and the earth is the center of truth.


The final letter of EMET is Tav which is the last letter of the Alephbet. Tav is seen at the expression of simple faith to the Hebrew. This letter corresponds to the kingdom as given to us in Torah or Scriptures

The Faithful Truth- EMET
  • God alone represents or determines what TRUTH is.
  • Therefore it is not what you or I think but what God thinks that is TRUTH.

The Faithful Truth- EMET
  • To live a Faithful and True life in 2014 and beyond…
  • We must accept that God alone determines what is true.
  • God must be the center of our lives.
  • We must be committed to reading His Word the Bible and apply it in our lives.
