GOD'S CHURCH WILL BE DIFFERENT


 

Only Godís church will believe the whole bible. We all know that churches in the world, pick and choose which scriptures to believe.  The bible is really only a vague reference for them. God requires us to believe the entire bible.

 

2Ti 3:16  All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,

 

Godís truth must not be compromised there cannot be true unity in disagreement. As this means there would be unity in incorrect knowledge. Godís end time church will be without spot and blemish. It will be united in faith and the knowledge of the Son of God. The earth will eventually be full of the knowledge of the Lord.

 

The overcomers in the Philadelphian era of the church will be pillars in Godís temple. They had to hold fast to what they had.  That era is gone with Mr. Armstrong. The Laodicean era will be built from people who believe God and are not afraid to confront disbelief, which is now rife in the churches. They will stand up and be counted.

 

Jesus Christ will build His church on the knowledge that He is the Son of God from the beginning. Jesus Christ will decide where and when this will take place.

 

Christ is from the beginning not eternity.

 

1Jn 1:1  That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life.

 

God created all things by His Son.

 

Heb 1:1  God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets,

Heb 1:2  has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds;

 

One self-existent GodÖJehovah.

 

Psa 83:18  That they may know that You, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, Are the Most High over all the earth.

 

One inhabits eternity.

 

Isa 57:15  For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: "I dwell in the high and holy place, With him who has a contrite and humble spirit, To revive the spirit of the humble, And to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

 

One true God.

 

Jer 10:10  But the LORD is the true God; He is the living God and the everlasting King. At His wrath the earth will tremble, And the nations will not be able to endure His indignation.

 

1Jn 5:20  And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.

 

One does not mean two.

 

Joh 17:3  And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.

 

Ask the pastors of the churches, what are the keys of the kingdom mentioned in Matt 16 v 19. And why donít they teach them. They should know.

 

Jesus Christ is the Son of God, but He has not existed for eternity.  He was born at a point of time called the beginning.

 

The following verse is not talking about the birth of Jesus by Mary.  It is talking about the birth of Jesus at a point in time called the beginning. It was revealed knowledge. The fact that Jesus was the Son of God before there was a world was what God the Father had revealed to him.

 

Mat 16:15  He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?"

Mat 16:16  Simon Peter answered and said, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."

Mat 16:17  Jesus answered and said to him, "Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.

 

There is only one God who has existed for eternity and that is the Father.

 

This is an extremely important subject. As we will not be in Godís kingdom if we do not believe the bible. We can help to answer your questions. But remember it is God who must be believed and obeyed: Not men. 

 

Notice the following scriptures show that Christ was the Son of God in the Old Testament.

 

Pro 30:4  Who has ascended into heaven, or descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son's name, If you know?

 

Dan 3:25  "Look!" he answered, "I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God."

 

Letís now look at the point of time called the beginning.

Before a time called the beginning the heavens and the earth did not exist.

 

Gen 1:1  In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

 

Before a time called the beginning the Word did not exist.

 

Joh 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Then at a point in time called the beginning the Word or Jesus was born to the Father.

Joh 1:2  He was in the beginning with God.

 

The Word or Jesus then made everything , before this time only the Father existed, but once Jesus was born, everything was then made by Him.

 

Joh 1:3  All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.

Joh 1:4  In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.

Joh 1:5  And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

 

The bible mentions the true God, who is the true God? It is God the Father only.

What it means is that the true God has existed for eternity. Jesus is not called the true God because He has not existed for eternity.

Jesus is God, He is the Son of the living God. He is second in charge of everything. However there is only one true God, that is God the Father.

 

Letís notice the following scriptures carefully.

The following verse states that the Lord is the true God. The Lord is the Father.

 

Jer 10:10  But the LORD is the true God; He is the living God and the everlasting King. At His wrath the earth will tremble, And the nations will not be able to endure His indignation.

 

The following verse shows that God the Father is the only true God. This verse has been spoken by Jesus Himself stating that THE FATHER IS THE ONLY TRUE GOD. This is not our idea, or some way we have twisted the scriptures to say what we want to hear. These are the words of Christ Himself stating that the Father is the ONLY true God.

 

Joh 17:3  And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.

 

This verse shows that Christ has given us an understanding of the true God.

 

1Jn 5:20  And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.

 

This knowledge is revealed knowledge. If we pray about new knowledge and ask the Father to show us the truth, He will give us the understanding of Himself and His Son Jesus Christ.

 

God the Father has always existed, He is the eternal one. Jesus Christ is the born Son of God at a point of time called the beginning.

 

It may be difficult to get our head around these new truths, but this new knowledge is eternal life, if we believe what we are being taught.

 

Isa 57:15  For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: "I dwell in the high and holy place, With him who has a contrite and humble spirit, To revive the spirit of the humble, And to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
