Praise the Lord.
As promised, let’s get back to the main thing.
When we left off, I used Isai 43 and 44 to launch this pivotal and life altering matter because if we never get the foundation correct, how then can we get anything else right, right?
God spoke in Isaiah and He made a simple yet powerful decree, He ALONE was God and that there was NOT another God besides Him.
This creates a landslide of argumentative beliefs, practices, and traditional reals that can and should overturn so many by-laws and SOP’s (standard operating procedures). Such a statement should have been well received and implemented but, so how, got overlooked by so many so=called Christians.
To make matters worse, we are gonna dive deeper down that rabbit hole and see if there are any other passages from God’s Holy scriptures that support such a claim.
Before we get to it, I want to start out with one of the most used passages that many use to try to support multiple gods.
King James Version
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
SO, notice how it says it v.26 where it says God said let “us” and “our” right? They will attempt to end the conversation there and not read just a bit further like in v.27 where it says that He, not they created and again that God created “He” him, being male and female.
They have no strong or logical explanation for v.27.
4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord:
5 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
1 Timothy 3:
16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
1 IN THE BEGINNING GOD created the heaven and the earth.
1 IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD, AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD, AND THE WORD WAS GOD.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by HIM; and without HIM was not any thing made that was made.
4 In HIM was life; and the life was the light of men.
14 AND THE WORD WAS MADE FLESH, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of THE ONLY BEGOTTEN of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his ONLY BEGOTTEN Son, that whosoever believeth in him SHOULD NOT perish, but have everlasting life.
GOLDEN NUGGET – the scriptures say “should” not shall. Shall is a prophetic promise from God that it will happen, should is conditional. What are the conditions you say, go to the beginning of the chapter v.1 and read through to v.7. (boom)
So far, I believe your head should be spinning and about to explode with why? Why are we saying, believing, and practicing what we are when scriptures clearly are saying a totally different thing compared to what we have grown up being taught and actually teaching ourselves.
Here is what is so disappointing, they will attack preachers like me and hurry to run to passages that if taken out of context, will appear to say what they know is not accurate sound doctrine.
They will flood your head with the numbers, comparing the sizes of they many church buildings and not stick to God’s Word. Since we are the biggest in numbers, we must be and have to be right. Well, scriptures don’t even support that.
Look, Rev 3:7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;
8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: FOR THOU HAST A LITTLE STRENGTH, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked.
I’m gonna end here this week but will finish up next week.
I think you have plenty to discuss to hold you over till then.
Till next week,
