God the word

God the word when turned upside down like this

looks like a meditator

I told people on Twitter about this in 2009 when I first joined Twitter.

I hope that this draws you closer to God because it did so for me in so many ways.

Life is not perfect,yet with God all things are possible.

What God is about

If you read the Bible correctly and rightly divide the Word of God

then you will realize just how good God is:

God is Living and is the Savior of all people:

1 Timothy 4:10

That is why we labor and strive, because we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and especially of those who believe.

Jesus said When I am lifted up from the earth,will draw all people to myself:

John 12:32

And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.”

God will bring about times of refreshment and restore everything:

Acts 3:20

Then times of refreshment will come from the presence of the Lord, and he will again send you Jesus, your appointed Messiah.

Heaven must receive him until the time comes for God to restore everything, as he promised long ago through his holy prophets.

The religion that God accepts as pure and faultless is to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world:

James 1:27

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

This may take some time to accept,yet God is this good.

Earth Facts according to The Bible

In this post I will discuss the Earth,how long it will stay and what it’s foundations are.

I will look into the Earth being the dry land and I will also look into the seas also.

 

God called the dry land Earth and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas:

Genesis 1:10

And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

 

The Earth stays for ever:

Ecclesiastes 1:4

One generation passes away, and another generation comes: but the earth stays for ever.

 

God set the Earth on its foundations,never to be moved:

Psalm 104:5

He set the earth on its foundations, never to be moved.

 

He founded the Earth upon the seas and established it upon the waters:

Psalm 24:2

For He has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the waters.

 

God fixed the Earths boundaries and set in place it’s bars and doors:

Job 38:10

when I fixed its boundaries and set in place its bars and doors,

 

The LORD set the sand as the boundary of the sea,an enduring barrier it cannot cross:

Jeremiah 5:22

Do you not fear Me? declares the LORD. Do you not tremble before Me, the One who set the sand as the boundary of the sea, an enduring barrier it cannot cross? The waves surge, but they cannot prevail. They roar but cannot cross it.

 

God gathers the waters of the sea together as an heap:

Psalm 33:7

He gathers the waters of the sea together as an heap: he lays up the depth in storehouses.

 

Summary:

The Dry Land is the Earth and the gathering together of the waters is the Seas.

The Earth stays forever and it is founded on the seas and established it upon the waters.

The Earth lasts forever.

God never asked for sacrifices

If the Jews actually read these Bible verses,

then they would have not asked for Jesus to be harmed.

 

Jesus even knew the scriptures so he was acquainted with

the knowledge that God himself desired mercy.

 

Abel brought the best of the firstborn lambs from his flock and The LORD accepted Abel and his gift:

Genesis 4:4

Abel also brought a gift–the best of the firstborn lambs from his flock. The LORD accepted Abel and his gift,

 

Summary of Genesis 4:4

Abel brought the best of the firstborn lambs from his flock that were alive and The LORD accepted Abel and his gift.

 

 

God desired mercy,and not sacrifice;and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings:

Hosea 6:6

For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.

 

Sacrifice and offering you did not desire,

and burnt offering and sin offering you have not required:

Psalm 40:6

Sacrifice and offering you did not desire; my ears have you opened: burnt offering and sin offering have you not required.

 

Burnt offerings are not acceptable to God and sacrifices do not please God:

Jeremiah 6:20

What use to Me is frankincense from Sheba or sweet cane from a distant land? Your burnt offerings are not acceptable; your sacrifices do not please Me.”

 

God takes no delight in the blood of bulls,of lambs and goats:

Isaiah 1:11

What is your multitude of sacrifices to Me?” says the LORD. “I am full from the burnt offerings of rams and the fat of well-fed cattle; I take no delight in the blood of bulls, of lambs and goats.

 

God considers sacrifices worthless and the incense disgusting and God can’t stand the evil done on New Moon Festivals and on Sabbaths and other times of worship:

Isaiah 1:13

Your sacrifices are worthless, and your incense disgusting. I can’t stand the evil you do on your New Moon Festivals or on your Sabbaths and other times of worship.

 

God hates and despises your feast days and he will not smell in your solemn assemblies:

Amos 5:21

I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies.

 

It is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins:

Hebrews 10:4

For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.

 

Every day every priest stands and performs his religious duties;again and again he offers the same sacrifices,which can never take away sins:

Hebrews 10:11

Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; again and again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins.

 

 

Summary of Hebrews 10:4,11

It it is not possible for the blood of bulls and of goats to take  away sins

Every day every priest stands and performs his religious duties;again and again he offers the same sacrifices,which can never take away sins

 

 

 

We have been mislead to think that God sent His own son to die for us,

yet God sent His own son that we might get saved,

that we might become righteous before Him.

 

 

Summary:

God desires mercy,and not sacrifice

God desires not sacrifice or offering

God did not require burnt offering or sin offering

God does not accept burnt offerings

God is not pleased with sacrifices

God takes no delight in the blood of bulls,of lambs and goats

God considers sacrifices worthless and the incense disgusting

God can’t stand the evil done on New Moon Festivals and on Sabbaths and other times of worship

and

God hates and despises your feast days and he will not smell in your solemn assemblies

 

To please God we must avoid offering and sacrificing stuff to God

because those two things were never asked for or required by Him.

Jesus is the Beginning

Jesus not only is the Beginning,yet he created everything that is.

 

Now let’s look at these Bible verses about it,

even the Interlinear version of Genesis 1:1

to see the Big Picture.

 

Now’s let’s delve into them to gain insight:

 

Revelation 1:8

“I am the Alpha and the Omega–the beginning and the end,” says the Lord God. “I am the one who is, who always was, and who is still to come–the Almighty One.”

 

Genesis 1:1(Interlinear Version)

The Beginning created the Elohim,the humans,the heavens and the earth.

 

John 1:1

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

 

John 1:3

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

 

John 1:14

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 6:46

Not that any man has seen the Father, save he which is of God, he has seen the Father.

 

John 14:7

If you had known me, you should have known my Father also: and from now on you know him, and have seen him.

 

Colossians 1:15

And He is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of all creation.

 

 

As you can tell Jesus not only created everything,

yet he is the Word that became Flesh too.

So it is important to acknowledge him to the fullest extent.

 

God is Omnipresent

I have a bunch of Bible verses to prove that God is Omnipresent with us

in every second of every day no matter where we live.

 

Here are those Bible verses:

1 Kings 8:27
But will God indeed dwell on the earth?
behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain you;
how much less this house that I have built?

Job 22:12
Is not God in the height of heaven?
and behold the height of the stars,
how high they are!

Jeremiah 23:24
Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? said the LORD.
Do not I fill heaven and earth? said the LORD.

Acts 7:49
Heaven is my throne,
and earth is my footstool:
what house will you build me?
said the Lord:
or what is the place of my rest?

2 Corinthians 2:6
New International Version (©1984)
But who is able to build a temple for him,
since the heavens,
even the highest heavens,cannot contain him?
Who then am I to build a temple for him,
except as a place to burn sacrifices before him?
(Hosea 6:6
For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice;
and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.

Psalm 51:16
For you desire not sacrifice; else would I give it:
you delight not in burnt offering.

1 Samuel 15:22
And Samuel said, Has the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and
sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than
sacrifice, and to listen than the fat of rams.)

Psalm 139:7-12
Where shall I go from your spirit?
or where shall I flee from your presence?
If I ascend up into heaven, you are there:
if I make my bed in hell, behold,
you are there.
If I take the wings of the morning,
and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
Even there shall your hand lead me,
and your right hand shall hold me.
If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light
about me.
Yes, the darkness hides not from you;
but the night shines as the day:
the darkness and the light are both alike
to you.

Genesis 28:16
And Jacob awaked out of his sleep,
and he said,
Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not.

 

Ain’t that something?

God fills our world from the oceans to the skies.

God fills our world from the depth of the world to the height of the world

 

Wherever We May Go

Wherever We May Go
Composed By
James Henry Shelton

Today is a moment
Which may pass like the stream
A still calm flow of water
Observed under
the hot suns heat
Angels watch over the many
That come and go through
The places of the world
Yet time is on your side
Wherever you may go
For God made us all
Like the grass that grows
And he observes us all
Wherever we may go

About the poem:
I completed this poem in 2011
so it is a older poem.

The Heavens,The Earth and The Seas

The firmament is Heaven and there is waters above it
and there are waters below it and those waters are the Seas.
The dry land is the Earth and not a sphere.

Genesis 1:6-13
And God said, Let there be a firmament in the middle of the waters,
and let it divide the waters from the waters.
And God made the firmament, and divided the waters
which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
And God called the firmament Heaven.
And the evening and the morning were the second day.
And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together
to one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
And God called the dry land Earth;
and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas:
and God saw that it was good.
And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass,
the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind,
whose seed is in itself, on the earth: and it was so.
And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind,
and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind:
and God saw that it was good.
And the evening and the morning were the third day.

Jesus is not his Father and his Father is not him

Jesus is God with us,yet Jesus is not God Himself.

I know I know,you are gonna get mad,yet let me explain.

Jesus was sent by God and only did and spoke

what Jesus saw God do and speak.

Jesus even admitted that God was greater than Him.

Below are Bible verses all about this and they make it clear

that there is a difference between them.

Still they are one,yet not the same.

It is like this

we are not God,yet we are made of His image and His likeness,

yet people miss this.

Jesus never claimed to be God,

yet he admitted that he existed before Abraham.

 

When Jesus admitted that He is one with the Father,

is like saying Jesus was unified with the Father

because the Father is a Spirit

and the Bible even says that we too can be one spirit with The Lord.

So we can do exactly like Jesus does and it is totally ok to do

 

 

 

Let me make something clear and it is this:

If Jesus was God and the Father he would have had no reason to

go to a God and the Father,

there would be no point in doing it

and such logic is like saying I am gonna go to my father who is myself.

People would look at you like you lost your mind and was crazy,

yet Jesus is not his Father and his Father is not him

so the confusion should diminish and fade to nothingness.

Jesus honestly never once in his ministry,nor before or after it

admitted to being his Father and his God.

He had no need to and still people out there have misguided logic

just like they do about Lucifer being some fallen angel when he never was,

yet he was a fallen king,the King of Babylon in fact.

 

So let’s delve into the Bible Verses that set the record straight

that Jesus witnessed,yet was not God,still from God though.

Jesus came down from heaven:

John 6:38

For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

 

He is from Above and not of this world

and the world is the field:

John 8:23

And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.

Matthew 13:38

The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;

Jesus on his own self can do nothing,

but as he hears he judges,and his judgment

is just and he seeks not his own will,

but the will of the Father which has sent him and he was also sent to finish his Father’s work,speak what his Father taught him and to do whatever he sees his Father do:

John 5:30

I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

John 4:34

Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work.

John 8:28

So Jesus said, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and that I do nothing on My own, but speak exactly what the Father has taught Me.

John 5:19

So Jesus replied, “Truly, truly, I tell you, the Son can do nothing by Himself, unless He sees the Father doing it. For whatever the Father does, the Son also does.

 

 Jesus prayed too and his desire was to do his Father’s will and he asked if his Father be willing to take the cup from him,which he never did:

Matthew 26:39

And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

Luke 22:42

“Father, if You are willing, take this cup from Me. Yet not My will, but Yours be done.”

 

He is in his Father and his Father is in him,

his Father dwelling in him performs His works and his Father is our Father and his God is our God too:

John 14:10
Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me? The words I say to you, I do not speak on My own. Instead, it is the Father dwelling in Me, performing His works.

John 20:17

Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

As you can tell Jesus is speaking about something even Moses would understand,Jesus is speaking of God using him to do his will.Except Jesus is his own son.Jesus was sent here to bring heaven to us,yet those in his day missed it.He was very understandable of what his need on earth was and that was to do his and our Father’s will.
