mikehill4jesus “What God do you believe in?”
7th June 2016 (10.34) My .mp3 Thought for Today Audio
Christian Segregation is putting God inside your own version of Christianity, John 14:24, and it will please the Devil. Allowing God to put you inside His family, John 14:23, won’t. I have previously mentioned and taught about the fact that Christianity contains people who are on the Broad Road to Hell and people who are on the Narrow Road to Heaven. Much of my Ministry is to try and help those on the Broad Road to get onto the Narrow Road. But I also spend time and effort to help those on the Narrow Road to stay on it.
John 14:23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.’
DO YOU TRULY KNOW GOD?
Who is this Living God?
I think it’s true to say that seeking knowledge about God can be hard work and can take different people along different roads of thought and belief. And so it is with Christianity.
Father – Son – Holy Spirit
I have been a disciple of the Lord Jesus for many, many years, and I say that the God who lives in me is a mighty God in Three Persons. I know me and only a mighty living God could have saved me and brought me through to where I am today.
The God I worship is no mystical being who is up there, somewhere, to be called out to.
No! My mighty God is a Trinity of three persons in one Godhead, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. They have existed from eternity and these sacred Persons are co-equal, co-eternal and co-consubstantial; that is identical in essence though different in aspect. Each is possessed of the elements of personality, i.e. thought, feeling, conscience and will, so that there are three separate centres of consciousness, feeling and action within the Trinity. Yet, these together constitute one God. The Trinity is a truth superior to our understanding yet not contrary to our reason.
All three are omnipotent having unlimited or universal power, when applied to my God, his absolute power in the physical realm.
It should be noted however, that in the moral realm God has limited His own power by giving to man the power of free will, whereby he can act entirely according to his own dictates and violate his own intelligence and God’s will if he so chooses. The present state of the world is a graphic and tragic illustration of this fact.
Because of this self-imposed limitation on His power, God cannot do many things. He cannot make anyone love Him. When anyone attacks a disciple of Jesus, they are attacking God. Whatever the disciple and their family have to endure, God also endures it with them. There is no more sad and pathetic sight than people claiming to be God’s leaders attacking the Lord and his servant, Acts 23:11 & 12.
Omnipotence is a natural attribute of the Godhead in that it is an unchangeable fact concerning His being, as opposed to a moral attribute, which is a matter of choice.
They are omniscient, having infinite knowledge or understanding of all that is knowable.
They are omnipresent, present in all places at the same time.
One thing is for sure……
The Lord Jesus is the key and his teachings the best way to find God.
This is what the Apostle Paul said.
1 Corinthians 8:5 ‘For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are many ‘gods’ and many ‘lords’), 6 yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.’
