Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary Definition of Truth: Conformity to fact or reality; exact accordance with that which is, or has been, or shall be. The truth of history constitutes its whole value. We rely on the truth of the scriptural prophecies.
GOD WILL DWELL WITH HIS PEOPLE
God’s purpose for humanity was set before He created time. His purpose was to dwell among His people and for Him to be their God. In God’s foreknowledge, He knew humanity would choose to sin and fall away. He knew that the Messiah would have to come to remove the sin barrier to make living together possible. He knew humanity would need to make a freewill choice to live with Him or not. His mercies and His love will endure forever, to those who believe Him.
