“In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands.”
The very first sentence of the Bible is very precious to me. In my early quest to know God I listened to many Pastors, Teachers, Family Members, Friends, Co-Workers. All had a view based on their own experiences.
But experiences and opinions have nothing to do with who God IS. God has revealed HIMSELF to us only within His recorded words contained in the Holy Bible. I appreciated the input of many, but have come to respect and trust only the pure Word of God.
In the beginning of my journey I heard the word Apologetics. I thought why would there be a category based on apologizing for the word of God. I was ignorant and immature in the Faith. Later I understood that the word Apologetics meant the study of how to defend your faith in an ever-increasing hostile environment.
As a Believer I have found my greatest passion is to learn how to defend my faith. The more I have studied, the more I have tested my faith in battle the more I have understood beyond any doubt… that without the Judeo/Christian Bible we would have no Idea, and no Revelation of who God is. Man on his own could never know who God is. Instead God has chosen to reveal Himself in only ONE Book. This book is a gift kept pure throughout the centuries of mankind’s earthly journey. This book will remain as a witness to the love, compassion, mercy and grace of our God for the coming epochs of eternity to the redeemed of all ages.
Also, every UN-Saved person will be condemned by the same book to an eternity without the Love of God as they stand before HIM in silence.
The Bible is the Autobiography of God in which He has revealed both Himself, humanities ultimate death sentence, His chosen Messiah / Redeemer / Savior, and the detailed history of mankind’s past, present and future. As I have said before, you are part of the Bibles Pre-written History; because you are part of mankind.
The question is whether you will be part of the continuing history of the Son of God. For the history of man is coming to a close. But the history of the Son of God is just beginning. All history is …HIS story and YOU are written on its pages for better or for worse.
The Bibles beginning account of Creation is as much historical fact as are the accounts of the people, places and events recorded in it. The Bible is unique in that it is the only book of its kind that uses pre-recorded history (prophecy), to substantiate that it is written by God through the inspiration of both the Jewish Prophets and Jewish Apostles.
Today we live by faith rather than by sight. It’s difficult for most of us to do this. But God has given us a mind to think and reason with. It is my hope and prayer that you will be able to engage your mind and think thru the defendable prophetic and historical facts of Scripture.
When you do this, you will understand that:
Faith is trust based on evidence…We choose to believe.
GOD BECAME A MAN …so HE could rescue “Some of us” that Believe.
No one has been left out of His invitation to come to Him…not even you.
The Bible IS the autobiography of God.
Yeshua / Jesus when He died on the Cross said “It is Finished”…but it is by NO Means the end of the story!
The “Greatest Story Ever Told” is about New Beginnings, a new Creation, a new Universe, a new Earth that will join with Heaven…and a new You.
Salvation is not about mans religion, but about a Personal Relationship between you and the SON of GOD.
“God has planted eternity in the hearts of all men”…if you but seek HIM and understand you will gain the assurance of your Salvation.
God is collecting all of His tears and all of humanities tears in a bottle. In the end there will be a new beginning. For now God sheds tears over you. Soon when He comes again there will be no more tears.
The fire in Gods eyes will have evaporated all the tears HE has shed over wayward people throughout time and history.
God gave us all free will. Everyone will go to the place they have chosen…He will grant their wishes forever.
You cannot pick and choose what you want to believe from Gods word. If you do then I question your faith and the road you are on.
To all who never believed the foundational statement by God when He wrote “In the Beginning God”…then you must question every word after that statement.
As you begin to question you will find that you have spent your life building your house of faith on shifting sand and not the rock foundation of Faith in God and His literal Word to us. For you, His Mercy and Grace will be gone…as He comes back only in Judgment.
But if you know Him and have a personal relationship with Him, and believe in the complete council of God; then He comes to you in Song, with a smile in His heart that will light up your heart forever. “He who was seated on the throne said I am making everything new! Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
“Look to Me ALL you ends of the earth! For I AM God and there is no other”
Fear No man…but Fear God.
