3Sarah R = "The next attribute is God's truth. A God of truth and without iniquity; just and right is he.' Deut 32:4. For thy mercy is great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds.' Psa 57:10. Plenteous in truth.' Psa 86:15.I. God is the truth. He is true in a physical sense; true in his being: he has a real subsistence, and gives a being to others. He is true in a moral sense; he is true sine errore, without errors; et sine fallacia, without deceit. God is prima veritas, the pattern and prototype of truth. There is nothing true but what is in God or comes from God.II. God's truth, as it is taken from his veracity in making good his promises. There has not failed one word of all his good promise.' I Kings 8:56. The promise is God's bond; God's truth is the seal set to his bond.There are two things to be observed in the promises of God to comfort us.  The power of God, whereby he is able to fulfil the promise. God has promised to subdue our corruption. He will subdue our iniquities.' Micah 7:19. Oh, says a believer, my corruption is so strong, that I am sure I shall never get the mastery of it. Abraham looked at God's power. Being fully persuaded that what God had promised he was able to perform.' Rom 4:21I. He believed that God, who could make a world, could make dry breasts give suck. It is faith's support that there is nothing too hard for God. He that could bring water out of a rock is able to bring to pass his promises. The truth of God in the promises. God's truth is the seal set to the promise. In hope of eternal life, which God that cannot lie has promised.' Tit 1:2. Eternal life, there is the sweetness of the promise: God which cannot lie, there is the certainty of it. Mercy makes the promise, truth fulfils it. God's providences are uncertain, but his promises are the sure mercies of David.' Acts 13:34. God is not a man that he should repent.' I Sam 15:29: 29. The word of a prince cannot always be taken, but God's promise is inviolable. God's truth is one of the richest jewels of his crown, and he has pawned it in a promise. Although my house be not so with God, yet he has made with me an everlasting covenant, ordered in all things and sure.' 2 Sam 23:5. Although my house be not so, that is, though I fail much of that exact purity the Lord requires, yet he has made with me an everlasting covenant, that he will pardon, adopt, and glorify me; and this covenant is ordered in all things and sure. The elements shall melt with fervent heat;' but this covenant abides firm and inviolable, being sealed with the truth of God. Nay, God has added to his word his oath, wherein he pawns his being, life, and righteousness to make good the promise. Heb 6:17. If as often as we break our vows with God, he should break promise with us, it would be very sad; but his truth is engaged in his promise, therefore it is like the law of the Medes and Persians, which cannot be altered. We are not,' says Chrysostom, to believe our senses so much as we are to believe the promises.' Our senses may fail us, but the promise cannot, being built upon the truth of God. God will not deceive the faith of his people, nay, he cannot. God, who cannot lie, has promised;' he can as well part with his Deity as his verity. God is said to be abundant in truth. Exod 34:4 What is that? If God has made a promise of mercy to his people, he will be so far from coming short of his word that he will be better than his word. He often does more than he has said, never less. He is abundant in truth.- See the rest at: http://biblehub.com/library/watson/a_body_of_divinity/10_the_truth_of_god.htm"
