The Spirit of Lying

1Jn 3:8 

He that committeth sin, is of the devil, for the devil sinneth from the beginning: for this purpose the Son of Alahayim was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

  • The devil has his people in this world, those that commit sin are children of the devil.

Joh 8:44 

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it

  • Lying is of the devil from the beginning and against the law of Ahayah which was given to protect us from the works of the devil.                      

Exo 20:16 

Thou shalt not bear falseH8267  witness against thy neighbor.

  • Ahayah has no pleasure in lying, it is an abomination in his eyes

Pro 6:16 

These six things doth AHAYAH hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: 

Pro 6:17 

A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, 

Pro 6:18 

An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, 

Pro 6:19 

A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren. 

  • We MUST BE MINDFUL not to entertain or use any lies in our heart, mind, or mouth to cause anyone or ourselves to stumble.

Sir 7:12 

Devise not a lie against thy brother: neither doe the like to thy friend.

Sir 7:13 

Use not to make any manner of lie: for the custom thereof is not good.

Sir 20:24 

A lie is a foul blot in a man, yet it is continually in the mouth of the untaught.

Sir 20:25 

A thief is better than a man that is accustomed to lie: but they both shall have destruction to heritage.

Pro 19:5 

A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall not escape.

Pro 19:9 

A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish.

Pro 26:28 

A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin.

  • (A lying tongue actually hates the person its deceiving)

Pro 17:4 

A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.

  • (An unrighteous person will give heed to another unrighteous person.)

Pro 25:18 

A man that beareth false witness against his neighbor is a maul, and a sword, and a sharp arrow

Pro 21:6 

The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death.

  • (Lying, even when you gain worldly riches will still lead to death)

Pro 12:22 

Lying lips are abomination to AHAYAH: but they that deal truly, are his delight.

Pro 11:18 

The wicked worketh a deceitful work: but to him that soweth righteousness shall be a sure reward

Pro 12:17 

He that speaketh truth sheweth forth righteousness: but a false witness deceit. 

Pro 13:5 

A righteous man hateth lying: but a wicked man is loathsome, and commeth to shame.

Pro 14:5 

A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies. 

Pro 14:25 

A true witness delivereth souls: but a deceitful witness speaketh lies. 

  • What we speak we must perform and do or it makes us a liar because the thing we said did not come to pass. We have to be mindful of our speech so that we do not avouch something and not perform it.

Sir 4:29  

Be not hasty in thy tongue, and in thy deeds slack and remiss..

  • Through the precepts Yache gives us more understanding on the power of the words we speak.

Mat 5:33 

Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto Ahayah thine oaths: 

Mat 5:34 

But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is Alahayim's throne: 

Mat 5:35 

Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. 

Mat 5:36 

Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black. 

Mat 5:37 

But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil. 

  • Yache taught the fullness of understanding vows and being mindful of what you say because what you speak is a vow for you or against you by the definition of the word for speaking. When you say something you are actually making a declaration, promise, or avouchment, so there is no need to swear by Ahayah’s name in an oath because what you speak is already a promise. Hence we have to be very mindful of what we say and do what we say we are going to do. We will have to give account for every word we speak at the judgement seat.





Ama-ro A primitive root; to say (used with great latitude): - answer, appoint, avouch, bid, boast self, call, certify, challenge, charge, + (at the, give) command (ment), commune, consider, declare, demand, X desire, determine, X expressly, X indeed, X intend, name, X plainly, promise, publish, report, require, say, speak (against, of), X still, X suppose, talk, tell, term, X that is, X think, use [speech], utter, X verily, X yet.

Bantu (Hebrew) Language: “Ama” means to witness or evidence, or testify. {Igbo dialect}

Mat 12:36 

But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. 

Mat 12:37 

For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. 

  • Therefore, lying is the last thing one should want to do since we have to give account of our words and be justified or condemned according to our words. The scriptures describe behavior of idolators, which is in part, making oaths and not keeping them and not caring because they don’t think any harm will come to them, so they continue to make oaths or agreements swearing falsely. Flee from the worship and servitude of the spirit of lying and false oaths.

Wis 14:27 

For the worshipping of idols not to be named, is the beginning, the cause, and the end of all evil.

Wis 14:28 

For either they are mad when they be merry, or prophesie lies, or live unjustly, or else lightly forswear themselves.

Wis 14:29 

For insomuch as their trust is in idols which have no life, though they swear falsely, yet they look not to bee hurt.

Sir 5:6 

And say not, His mercy is great, he will be pacified for the multitude of my sins: for mercy and wrath come from him, and his indignation resteth upon sinners.

Sir 7:8 

Bind not one sin upon another, for in one thou shalt not be unpunished.

Sir 7:9 

Say not, Alahayim will look upon the multitude of my oblations, and when I offer to the most High Ala, he will accept it

Wis 14:30 

Howbeit for both causes shall they be justly punished: both because they thought not well of Alahayim, giving heed unto idols, and also unjustly swore in deceit, despising holiness.

Wis 14:31 

For it is not the power of them by whom they swear: but it is the just vengeance of sinners, that punisheth always the offence of the unholy.

  • Yache, gives us clear instruction on what we must do by his prophets:

Zec 8:16 

These are the things that ye shall do; Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbor; execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates

  • (Speaking truth and judgment of truth brings peace in the community.)

Zec 8:17 

And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his neighbor; and love no false oath: for all these are things that I hate, saith AHAYAH. 

  • After Yache went up into the heavens, He ordained Paul and the Apostles to continue the same message of obedience to the law.

Rom 13:9 

For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

  • One of the Holy angels of AHAYAH, Phanuel the angel over repentance, gave Hermas much instruction and admonishment on abstaining from lying that we may live unto Ahayah.

Shepard of Hermas Mandate 3:

1[28]:1 Again he saith to me; "Love truth, and let nothing but truth proceed out of thy mouth, that the Spirit which Alahayim made to dwell in this flesh, may be found true in the sight of all men; and thus shall AHAYAH, Who dwelleth in thee, be glorified; for AHAYAH is true in every word, and with Him there is no falsehood.

1[28]:2 They therefore that speak lies set AHAYAH at nought, and become robbers of AHAYAH, for they do not deliver up to Him the deposit which they received. For they received of Him a spirit free from lies. This if they shall return a lying spirit, they have defiled the commandment of AHAYAH and have become robbers."

1[28]:3 When then I heard these things, I wept bitterly. But seeing me weep he saith, "Why weepest thou?" "Because, Sir," say I "I know not if I can be saved." "Why so?" saith he. "Because, Sir," I say, "never in my life spake I a true word, but I always lied deceitfully with all men and dressed up my falsehood as truth before all men; and no man ever contradicted me, but confidence was placed in my word. How then, Sir," say I, "can I live, seeing that I have done these things?"

1[28]:4 "Your supposition," he saith, "is right and true, for it behooved thee as a servant of Alahayim to walk in truth, and no complicity with evil should abide with the Spirit of truth, nor bring grief to the Spirit which is holy and true." "Never, Sir," say I, "heard I clearly words such as these."

1[28]:5 "Now then," saith he, "thou hearest. Guard them, that the former falsehoods also which thou spakest in thy business affairs may themselves become credible, now that these are found true; for they too can become trustworthy. If thou keep these things, and from henceforward speak nothing but truth, thou shalt be able to secure life for thyself And whosoever shall hear this command, and abstain from falsehood, that most pernicious habit, shall live unto Alahayim."

Testament of Dan 2-5:1-3; Ch. 6

2:1 And now, my children, behold I am dying, and I tell you of a truth, that unless ye keep yourselves from the spirit of lying and of anger, and love truth and longsuffering, ye shall perish.

2:2 For anger is blindness, and does not suffer one to see the face of any man with truth.

3:6 . This spirit goeth always with lying at the right hand of Satan, that with cruelty and lying, his works may be wrought.

4:5 If ye fall into any loss or ruin, my children, be not afflicted; for this very spirit maketh (a man)

4:6 desire that which is perishable, in order that he may be enraged through the affliction. And if ye suffer loss voluntarily, or involuntarily, be not vexed; for from vexation ariseth wrath with lying.

4:7 Moreover, a twofold mischief is wrath with lying; and they assist one another in order to disturb the heart; and when the soul is continually disturbed, AHAYAH departeth from it, and Beliar ruleth over it.

5:1 Observe, therefore, my children, the commandments of AHAYAH, and keep His law; Depart from wrath, and hate lying, that AHAYAH may dwell among you, and Beliar may flee from you.

5:2 Speak truth each one with his neighbor. So shall ye not fall into wrath and confusion; but ye shall be in peace, having the Alahayim of peace, so shall no war prevail over you.

5:3 Love AHAYAH through all your life, and one another with a true heart.

6:1, And now, fear AHAYAH, my children, and beware of Satan and his spirits.

6:2 Draw near unto Alahayim and unto the angel  that intercedeth for you, for he is a mediator between Alahayim and man, 

  •  (this angel is Yache)

6:3 and for the peace of Israel he shall stand up against the kingdom of the enemy.

6:8 Keep, therefore, yourselves, my children, from every evil work, and cast away wrath and all lying, and love truth and long-suffering.


  • Yache testified in the book of revelations that liars and workers of iniquity and abomination shall in no way enter into the kingdom of Heaven.

Rev 22:11 

He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. 

  • (Each man will do whatever they want, but judgment is still coming.)

Rev 22:12 

And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 

Rev 22:13 

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 

Rev 22:14 

Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 

Rev 22:15

 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. 

Rev 22:16 

I Yache have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. 

  • The Holy Spirit testified in David that those who speak truth in their heart and work (do) righteousness will abide in the Holy hill.​

Psa 15:1 

A Psalm of David. AHAYAH, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill? 

Psa 15:2 

He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart. 

  • We have read what is to come to understand the spirit of lying and where it leads as oppose to the love of truth and speaking truth in our heart and with our neighbor. Let us be guileless as little children to work righteousness as our Lord Yache is righteous:

1Jn 3:7 

Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doth righteousness, is righteous, even as he is righteous.
