21st Century 95 Points of Light: Point of Light #81
God has stated in His word that He has given us the ability to reason with Him. Isaiah 1:18.
God has given us His word. Reasoning and logic and proper and honest Exegesis of His word that He has given us is required if we are to know and teach the light of THE FAITH.
Exegesis of the written word requires honest logic to arrive at what God has written to us. When we pay attention to context so called contradictions are ferreted out and corrected so that we have the light of the truth. God nor His son the Lord Jesus contradict themselves nor one another.
A casual reading of the Bible will not do. The Bible was not written in English. Hebrew is an uncorrupted language. It is its own language. No language is derived from it. The Greek and Aramaic languages are also in the Bible. The Aramaic is a family of languages. It is a Semitic family. which also includes Canaanite languages such as Hebrew and Phoenician. The Aramaic script was widely adopted for other languages and is ancestral to both the Arabic and modern Hebrew alphabets. It is available to know these languages using today’s concordances and lexicons and online research resources such as research software.
We use knowledge and logic in our everyday work. Yet when it comes to using our logic when we research the written word there are fellowships that toss logic out the window.
God tells us that He is the only ONE Eternal Spirit and He alone is God.
God tells us that His son had a genesis – a beginning which was his conception and birth of the seed of the woman which is a human being.
Jesus was born of spiritual origin because his birth is foretold beginning in Genesis 3:15 and God His Father created the seed in Mary that allowed her to conceive and give birth to the son of God whom she named Jesus as God instructed her.
Jesus is the namesake of God. God is OUR SAVIOR and Jesus is also interpreted as God OUR SAVIOR. This does not mean that His son the Lord is God. Jesus is the image of God who is Spirit. Jesus himself said God is Spirit. An image is not the original. You cannot make the image the original. Jesus was born a male human child. You cannot make a human God. We are also the image of God. This does not mean we are God.
God and His son Jesus are definitely distinct in origin and being. God is the ONE Eternal Spirit and Jesus His son had an origin – his birth was his beginning. He was conceived and given birth by his mother Mary.
Jesus was born a human being of flesh and blood. The Apostle Paul tells us that Jesus was born of the flesh yet was without sin. The reason Jesus was born without sin is that science tells us that the blood of the child comes from their father. The father of Jesus is God Himself. God is Holy and He is Spirit. Jesus was born of spiritual origin when God created the life giving seed in Mary.
God sent the promised holy spirit on the day of Pentecost. 3,000 devout Jewish people were baptized by the Lord Jesus with the gift of holy spirit. God put the gift of holy spirit within each person on the day of Pentecost. Before Pentecost, believers in the Messiah of God had holy spirit upon them. Jesus himself had holy spirit upon him the day he was baptized with water by John the Baptist and God confirmed Jesus was His son and gave him holy spirit.
The gift of holy spirit we receive the moment we believe God has raised His son Jesus from the dead and has appointed him the Lord and we Confess Jesus is Lord.
It was confirmed on the day of Pentecost that God has appointed Jesus both the Messiah and Lord.
This was confirmed by God making available spiritual birth of holy spirit on the day of Pentecost.
This holy spirit we receive by being baptized by the Lord Jesus with holy spirit is a new creation within us. It never existed until is was created within us. We never had this gift of holy spirit until Jesus baptized us with holy spirit. It is a new creation.
Only God who is Yahweh was in the beginning before He created the heavens and earth. His thoughts are His words. His word is not a person.
Only Yahweh is the ONE Eternal Spirit and the ONE God. There is no other God.
Allah is not the ONE True God. Allah according to the Koran has no children.
All other religions have made up their own God or Gods.
You cannot replace Yahweh as the ONE Eternal Spirit and the ONE God without putting yourself under the influence and darkness of His Adversary.
The Apostle Paul is very clear. There is no God but ONE – 1 Corinthians 8:4
There is but ONE God, the Father, from whom all things came. God created the Cosmos and humankind. God is the ONE who sent the gift of holy spirit on the day of Pentecost and established The Church.
God has established spiritual fellowship for all mankind through His only begotten son.
There is but ONE Lord, and he is the one who ratified the New Covenant by his death with his blood. This enabled God to provide spiritual fellowship in this life by spiritual birth of holy spirit and everlasting life in the age to come when the Lord Jesus will resurrect us from the dead.
Jesus in his ministry to Israel told the Jewish people that he would raise from the dead anyone who believed he was the Messiah of God his Father.
Jesus was begotten by God his Father. Jesus was born a male human child.
Jesus died by crucifixion upon a cross.
God raised Jesus from the dead. Jesus went up into the air to which his apostles
God confirmed He appointed Jesus both the Messiah and Lord when He sent the promised spirit on the day of Pentecost.
This spirit is the spirit of truth, a spirit of power, a spirit of love and the conduit through which God our Father and our Lord Jesus speak to us and vice-versus.
This gift of holy spirit is given to all mankind. Anyone who believes the Gospel of Jesus i.e. That God raised him from the dead and made him Lord and Confess Jesus is Lord are given the gift of holy spirit by grace and given everlasting life by grace.
Let us obey the command of the Apostle Paul and walk in the spirit in spiritual fellowship with God our Father, Jesus our Lord, and one another.
Let us speak the truth with one another, not mishandling the God-breathed word that He has given us.
When you teach a doctrine made up by men you are a bald faced liar or an ignorant liar but you are a liar and the father of lies is the Adversary who tried to usurp the ONE True Eternal God from His Throne in His Kingdom in the most high place. The ONE most High God is not a man who can lie to us.
The God of Israel is the Lord God Yahweh.
All of Joshua 24 refers to the Lord God Yahweh – not the Lord Jesus. The Lord Yahweh is the ONE God and he seeks to have the Israelites serve Him and to put away all other gods.
Joshua 24:17 has nothing to say about the Lord Jesus. This verse is about the Lord God Yahweh who brought the Hebrews out of Egypt. Verse 23 makes it very plain the Hebrews were to cast off strange gods and to incline their heart to the Lord God Yahweh of Israel.
It is clear The Lord God Yahweh is the ONE God referred to by Jeremiah. The Lord God Yahweh the ONE Eternal Spirit is the author of His word and His word are His thoughts – Verse 20. The Lord God Yahweh is the ONE Eternal Spirit that fills heaven and earth – Verse 24. The Lord God Yahweh is the ONE Eternal Spirit who has spoken to his Prophet Jeremiah.
This verse refers to Moses and the Prophets of God. Jesus told a parable and indicated the people will not believe the truth and receive everlasting life even if one rose from the dead. Jesus died on the cross and The Lord God Yahweh his Father raised him from the dead.
The Apostle Paul wrote the book of Hebrews to appeal to the Jewish people to believe in the Lord Jesus.
The Apostle Paul states that without faith it is impossible to please the Lord God Yahweh the ONE Eternal Spirit.
The Lord God Yahweh is the one who created the Cosmos and humankind when He spoke and fulfilled His word by His power.
The Apostle Paul lists from the beginning the creation, Cain the son of Adam and Eve, Enoch, Noah and the Patriarch Abraham.
The Apostle Paul states these all died in The FAITH. They believed Yahweh the ONE Eternal Spirit. Verse 13
The Apostle Paul states Mores esteemed the light of the Messiah of God due to Genesis 3:15 and the Oral transmission by Adam and Eve of their time with Yahweh their Father. He suffered reproach from the Egyptians but was faithful to the Mission that the Lord God Yahweh gave him to deliver the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. God is the ONE Eternal Spirit that is invisible. Verse 27
Jesus the Messiah of God is the one who endured the cross and is now at the right hand of The Lord God Yahweh the ONE Eternal Spirit who is his ONE and Only Father. Jesus is the one who fulfilled the law and through him everlasting life by grace is available – Hebrews 12:2
The above verses are misinterpreted by fellowships to teach the lie of the Adversary that the Lord Jesus was pre-existent before his birth. Shame on all who teach the above verses are light about a pre-existent Lord Jesus. Jesus was not appointed Lord by God his Father and our Father, i.e. by the Lord God Yahweh, until after his death, resurrection and ascension into the Kingdom of God. This was confirmed when the ONE God Yahweh sent the promised spirit on the day of Pentecost.
