“IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD…

Bible-The-Living-Word

…AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD AND THE WORD WAS GOD.”

“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:14. There has been and perhaps still may be much debate about the divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ. Was Christ God that came down from heaven in human form to dwell among the people? Why is God, in the person of Christ considered the Son of God? Why in the person of Christ did our Lord Jesus not consider himself equal to God being God in human form? Question that many Believers shy away from when confronted by those of “the world” that believe the Word of God is full of contradictions and based on the wisdom of this world can’t seem to make sense of. Even when looking at the Holy Trinity…the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, all being God, but distinct in personality, separate one from another with its own function as part of the Godhead, but one Spirit working through all. “No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.” John 1:18. Regardless of what debate the world may cast, or disbelief or doubt maybe displayed by those who do not believe, for I am convinced that my Lord Jesus Christ is God in human form. Therefore, what I believe I speak. It not my position to convince the masses on what they are to believe or not believe, but it is my position to present the Word of Truth as I am commissioned to do so. For this reason, as children of the living God whom God foreknew, called, and predestined, has specific task to perform while here passing through…the completion of the work started by our Lord Jesus and passed down from Believer to Believer. Sometime I wonder how could one question the manifold wisdom of such an awesome God. If things do not appear within the reasoning of our limited knowledge and intellect, especially pertaining to things of God, it must not be true, accurate or correct….faith is lost. However, I wonder has anyone, while searching for flaws in the Word of God, or what was written and by whom that contradicts, considered really who is the grand illusionist that blind the eyes of those seeking to discredit the Word of God…of course not.  Just as the Jews believed they were waiting on a king to come and sit on David’s throne in this realm at that time and destroy their enemies, there was something much greater at stake taking place in the spiritual realm. “Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: (but now) is my kingdom not from hence.Christ knew who would believe…”Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;” John 17:20. Do we really know what’s taking place around us in the heavenly realms?  What we are to know, we are provided with and the rest is all about faith. Paul couldn’t have said it more plainly in 1 Corinthians 13:12;  “For now (in this world) we see through a glass, darkly; but then(when we are with Christ) face to face: now (while in this life) I know in part; but then (when I am heaven bound) shall I know even as also I am known.

“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord.

“And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.

For just as the heavens are higher than the earth,

so my ways are higher than your ways

and my thoughts higher than your thoughts…”

[Isaiah 55: 8-9, NLT]

 

When will we stop questioning God and take God’s Word for what it is…the truth. How long must we debate, conflict and wrestle over the Word of God and reason together as brothers and sisters prayerfully, leaning not on our own understanding, but allow the Spirit to teach and lead us into ALL truth pertaining to the things of God. “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:” Matthew 7:7. How can we try to figure out things of such an ALL knowing, ALL powerful, creator and sustainer of ALL things when we have such difficulty living in this life alone?  But our Lord said it best in Luke 18:8; “I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? I pray that those reading this may come to the true knowledge of who Jesus Christ is and your position in Him as part of the body of Christ and work to be done, I included. This is all about Faith. So guard your minds and hearts as you press forward from faith to faith and glory to glory. Let no one deceive you or misguide you from your upward calling in Christ Jesus our Lord, for the enemy is crafty, and out to destroy ALL who bare that seal that you received when you first believed. Amen. So, may the one and only true God, Lord and Savior, the Holy God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob protect you and watch over you and equip you with all you need in Jesus name. Amen and God bless.

REMEMBER!!! Go take a peek at the novel if you haven’t yet. “Battlefield of Angels” It’s a glimpse at spiritual warfare around us and rate this. Though fictional in content many of the events are realand a shadow of my life.
