The Nature of God – II


It is not difficult to understand the nature of God; as you can clearly see from this and the previous discussions. It only gets to appear complicated (and almost impossible to comprehend; as some suggest in the concept of the Trinity) when you only employ the ‘English Bible’ without considering the original meanings and characteristics of the original scripts, and also when you isolate verses and look at them out of context. Indeed, the thought/argument that: ‘we have one divine being (God) who manifests Himself in three different forms as either the Father, the Word (Son), or Holy Spirit and thus works in three different ways at the same time,’ is grossly defeated by so many passages of scripture, and essentially supported by none. So it is safe to say that we have one Supreme God (the Father, who is not the Son nor the Holy Spirit) then we have the Word (who is the Son, and not the father nor the Holy Spirit), and then we have the Holy Spirit (who is not the Son nor the Father) Aha! ‘So why does the Bible (John 1:1) say that, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God,” for instance?’ You may ask! I will deal with that, and other matters, in the next discussion; you may click here to see.

Like the Israelites were faced with (or rather going to be faced with), there is always the temptation to look at how others serve/worship their gods and try to apply same to our God (Yhovah). For them, their god is visible and located at a particular place, and that place alone. To worship him, they have to physically go to that particular location and perform rituals. Our God is not at a particular location we have to go to; He is spirit, and does not dwell in temples made by human hands, and does not need hand-outs either; (Acts 7:44-49, 17:22-25). When we gather together, we principally do so to share fellowship with one another, and with the Holy Spirit, and not necessarily to worship God per se, as the pagans do; because we worship God in everything we do, and at wherever we find ourselves.

Now that we know God very well, let us endeavour to worship Him in spirit and truth.
