“And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” John 17:3
So many people today struggle to believe in God….and yet they have no issues with believing in other ‘gods’,’ goddesses’, idols/statues, or science/men.
Why is it so easy for humans to be blinded to the truth….while they think and say we who believe in God are blinded ourselves, or indoctrinated by religions and traditions and can’t think for ourselves?
They refuse to the see the answers that are in front of them every minute of every day that the God of scripture is the True God and the Only God of the universe.
They refuse to hear us when we talk about scripture because to them it is just another religious book that was written by men and we who believe in it don’t really believe, we just go by what we are told or taught to believe.
While this is in fact true in some instances involving cults…..anyone who truly reads the bible themselves can make sense enough to know when someone is leading them astray or leading them to God. Many people, because of being new in Christ or not fully understanding how to hear the Holy Spirit, can in fact fall into cult religions….and fall into listening to the interpretations of certain men instead of actually reading the bible themselves.
There are many people who still, even after, receiving Christ as Savior are blinded….because some things of the bible make them uncomfortable so they find leaders of churches who will interpret the bible according to what they want to hear and see instead of what it actually says.
You can read Scripture without having the Holy Spirit and using your rational and logical mind you can contradict a lot of what is being taught just by using common sense. However only with the Holy Spirit does scripture take on a whole different meaning…..for you start to see who God really is instead of just guessing at who He is.
How many people today know God? How many people today try to know God? How many people today want to know God?
There are many people that claim they have tried to find God throughout their lives only to end up with unanswered questions and never finding Him….
However….the questions they are asking….are they the right questions? Why can’t they find Him when others can? How are they searching for Him?
God the Creator
“Hast thou not known? Hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? There is no searching of his understanding.” Isaiah 40:28
There are actually a few beliefs of the creation of the world….
- You have, of course, scripture detailing how the world was created
- You have the belief in the ‘Big Bang Theory’
- You have the belief that extraterrestrials (Aliens) created the world
- You have the belief that there are higher gods and goddesses that created realms/sects inside of earth….these were worshipped all throughout history and are still worshipped in some cultures today. Although some have evolved to ‘some being’ of a higher source of light and freedom….
As for the so called ‘Big Bang’, when I use to hear people say this…I always just said, well it’s technically true….God said let there be Land and ‘boom’ there was land and I would always have a good chuckle because in all honestly….I was surprised that people could be so lacking in common sense as to not be able to put 2 and 2 together.
“Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself; That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish;” Isaiah 44:24-25
While people make claim those of us who believe in a God that there is no proof of created all things….what makes more logical sense to a rational person?
Is it logical to believe that we and everything in the universe and on this earth, (humans, insects, trees, flowers, animals, land, lava, clouds, rain, dew, minerals, plants, etc…) just happened? Literally, just decided to exist?
Is it logical to believe that extraterrestrial aliens decided to create this world…..and create us the way we are, (which looks nothing like them in their true form of course), and all these animals and insects….only to experiment on us in some pretty horrible ways according to people’s testimonies……why would they do this? What is the logical and rational reasoning behind this thought? Also, where did they come from? Who created them? Why create an earth just to experiment on the things….they ‘so called’ created? Why not just create us on their ships?
I’ll be honest…I think it’s extremely sad but…. pretty funny that people actually believe that Aliens would create the world….because by the way they look….I would think they would not know to create us to look the way we look and not fix themselves first…..and to think that they are from the future….hmmm…well again….the aliens I have seen from investigations and people sightings….they are not pretty looking…in fact they look pretty darn demonic to me. (As that is what they really are)
“For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else.” Isaiah 45:18
While God was not created, and He is and always will be….
“Before the mountains were brought forth, or even hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.” Psalms 90:2
If you are looking for answers about creation scripture does in fact answer these questions….God who has an infinite mind is a creator…..and He has, who knows how many millions of years, has created all sorts of things that we can only imagine or know at all…..
He explains why the earth was created…..why the sun and moon were created…..why animals were created…..why we as humans were created…..
“Thou are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.” Revelation 4:11
- We were created for His pleasure…..just as parents choose to have children for love and for the joy of having children – (while this in not true in most cases (especially today) for the most part that is why people have children; because they want them.) God made us for His joy…..
- He made us in His image….it is why we look the way we look….it’s hard to believe that people actually believe we came from the fish in the sea and evolved to humans…..need I really say more?
- Even the animals were created for His pleasure and to bring us joy in them and to be helpers to us…..It only changed when Adam and Eve were banned from Eden….
- The sun and moon were created for day and for night.
- God even explains that the extraterrestrial aliens are demonic entities
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12
6. God explains why we are how we are…both the good and the evil…..No other belief really goes into why we have good and bad people in this world….the only explanation is found in the Scripture…..Because Adam and Eve were tempted against God and did fall into that temptation and brought sin and evil into the world….
“And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?” Genesis 3:11
“Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.” Romans 1:25
You see, scripture can explain so many things that the majority of people are searching for….but they refuse to read….to understand because they don’t like what it says and what it means about them….they would have to face some hard truths that they don’t like or want because they, are really afraid. It is why they will never fully understand this earth and who they are unless they accept Jesus as their savior and receive the Holy Spirit…..only then will they truly begin to see and understand the truth of this world……
“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:” Romans 1:20
Jesus is God in the flesh
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1
Throughout scripture you can see even in the Old Testament that Jesus was there…..whenever someone saw the LORD in the flesh (also the reference to the angel of the Lord)….this was Jesus….
“And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.” Genesis 32:24
When Jacob wrestled with the man who was the LORD….this was Jesus….God in the Flesh….When King Nebuchadnezzar looked into the fire….that was Jesus…..
“He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.” Daniel 3:25
It was prophesied that the LORD would become flesh…..
“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5
“Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost……And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” Matthew 1:18 & 21
Other Verses that prove Jesus is God….
“For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.” 1 John 5:7
“Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” 1 John 4:15
If God dwelleth in us thru the Holy Spirit….which came from Jesus Christ then it is only logical to realize that God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are in fact one.
“Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.” John 16:7
“Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.” 1 Corinthians 12:3
If only by the Holy Spirit we can say Jesus in Lord…and the Lord God is the Holy Spirit….and we can only receive the Holy Spirit from Jesus… again this makes claim that Jesus is God….
“Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? He that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou them Shew us the Father?” John 14:9
God the Savior in Christ Jesus
“He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. 1 John 2:2
In order to understand why Jesus had to die….people must come to the realization that they are a sinner in need of saving….in order to come to the conclusion that you are a sinner….you must understand what sin is….(I am in the process of writing a blog about sin because it is actually pretty in depth so I will only do a rough synopsis here for the sake of concentrating on Christ being Savior for all)
“For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.” Isaiah 54:5
When we don’t believe in God; we sin….when we turn away from what He teaches…we sin….when we do not listen to Him…we sin…..however..…only those who do not believe in Him are truly lost and can find no Savior in Him…because they refuse to believe in Him…..
“Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? And there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.” Isaiah 45:21
Jesus had to die in order to bring us back to the rightful place He created for us before the fall of Adam and Eve: Which is not to be separated from Him….Sin brought in the separation from God….
“Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” Romans 5:1-2
This is why a blood sacrifice was needed so that all sinners who believe in that sacrifice are washed by perfect and sinless blood….But there is only one way to bring us back to that perfect place and only one person who could do that….
“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Acts 4:12
No other religion (for the church is not a religion we are the body of Christ), tradition, or culture can make claim of a God who became a perfect man who was to shed His blood to wipe all evil and sin from every person in the world…..Many of them claim He was just a prophet….but making that claim places Jesus as Human and NO HUMAN would have done what He did for the whole world….I know I wouldn’t…oh sure…I would die for kids…for my family…but for the whole world?
I wouldn’t, I couldn’t….because to me it wouldn’t be fair….why do I have to pay for YOUR sins and wrong doings….Why should I have to take YOUR punishment…..
“But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 15:57
Only Jesus….who was in the flesh, God incarnate, could He do what He did for Mankind….That is the difference in Human Love and God’s Love….our love is selfish the majority of the time…..God’s love is selfless…..the only thing He asks of you is to believe in it.
God the King, the beginning, and the end
“Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of Hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.” Isaiah 44:6
When you open your eyes to the truth….and know the time is near….you begin to realize how many lost souls there really are….all because they choose to be. It is frustrating for us who know God…and it is also very sorrowful….for we know where they have made their home and we want them to come with us….but we all….every one of us all make a choice….
“For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.” Romans 14:11
The Lord will be the only King on this earth…..
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6
“Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgement and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.” Isaiah 9:7
“And He hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” Revelation 19:16
Our King is coming soon….coming soon to take His bride….coming back with us to reign on this earth….Get ready to meet Him for time is short and running out….you will meet Him no matter if you believe in Him….and you will face everything you have ever feared….because if you have not made Him your King and chose Him as Your Savior….He will not recognize you as His Servant, His Child, and you will be cast out into the Hell that you chose for your home…
For those that are looking for Him…..we will see His Glorious appearing soon and we will be forever with Him and away from this wicked world….Praise the Lord HE IS OUR GOD.
“And he that say upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.” Revelation 21:5-6
“He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen Even so, come, Lord Jesus.” Revelation 22:20
