Jesus is The Son, The Father is God

Have you been correctly taught about God who is the Father, and the Lord Jesus who is the Son of God? Have you been taught that Jesus is God or that Jesus is the Son of God? Have you been taught that Jesus is God or that Jesus is Lord? Are you aware of the difference? Do you think there is more than one God? Let’s begin…

As I read through my newsfeed and see many people’s posts it bothers me that many people have still not come to know GOD as Father. I see some people calling Jesus the Father and calling themselves children of Jesus although Jesus calls us his friends(John 15:15) and Jesus calls us his brothers(Matthew 28:10). I see other people in their posts making no reference to the Father but only mentioning Jesus, but never mentioning the Father of Jesus and the Father of all of us who believe in Jesus(John 20:17).

Interestingly enough when you read the Epistles written by Paul you can see that Paul always mentions both Jesus and GOD the Father at the beginning and end of almost every epistle that he writes. Do you know both? Do you mention both?

Let’s look at a few examples:

Romans 1:7
“To all who are in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.”

Here Again:

Ephesians 1:3
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ”

Here Paul tells us that God is both the God and Father of Jesus Christ. Jesus also told us the same thing while on earth and from Heaven in John 20:17 (on earth) and Revelation 3:12 (from Heaven), but I’ll get more into that later.

You will see a similar reference at the beginning of almost every book of the Bible that Paul writes.

For more examples, you can read 1 Corinthians 1:3, 2 Corinthians 1:2, 2 Corinthians 13:14, Galatians 1:3, Ephesians 1:2, Ephesians 6:23-24, Philippians 1:2 and so forth, the beginning of all Pauls Epistles are written similarly.

I remember watching a sermon from Derek Prince in which he said that he did not receive the revelation that GOD was his Father until after 40+ years of his ministry. He said he knew about Jesus, but he never knew GOD as Father. Derek Prince said he had read the Bible countless times and read the scriptures about the Father GOD, but he did not have direct experience with the Father GOD. He only had the verses but he did not experience the verses about GOD as Father.

Here is a quote Derek said in his sermon titled “Do you Know GOD As Father?” I believe this sermon is available on YouTube in multiple language translations as well as English.

“Charismatic and evangelical Christians love to quote the words of Jesus in John 14:6: “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” Yet I believe that many of us have only apprehended the first half of that verse. A way only has meaning if it leads to a destination. Jesus is the Way, but the Father is the Destination. Multitudes of Christians are still on the way, and have never arrived at their destination. They have never come to know God as a Father, personally; missing the real point of the coming of Jesus”. – Derek Prince

This is a teaching I’ve wanted to elaborate on for a while but, because I see everyone divided on this matter and I didn’t want to cause unnecessary division, I choose to wait and lay a foundation of other teachings first so the points here are not misunderstood. What’s commonly taught in the Christian church today is that Jesus is God, and that God is Triune(One God made up of three equal persons), however, the plain reading of the Bible teaches something a little different.

So let’s begin reading the scriptures so I can show you exactly what I mean.

Have you read Luke 18:19 and Mark 10:18? Jesus says something quite interesting that seems to be often glossed over in these two verses.

Luke 18:19
“So Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God.”

Mark 10:17-18
“Now as He was going out on the road, one came running, knelt before Him, and asked Him, “Good Teacher, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? ”
So Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God.

Here Jesus distinguishes himself from God Almighty and questions the rich young ruler on why he called him good, because no one is good except God.  I wonder if people have read these verses or if they simply ignore them. I do my best to stick to the plain reading of scripture because I find when man adds his own interpretations and explanations to the verses that they add to the words of Jesus and cause confusion. Let’s just read the Bible for what it says, the New Testament was written plainly, so anyone could read it and come to the knowledge of the Lord Jesus. If more was needed to be said in this verse Jesus could have said it, but this is all he said, so let’s deal with that.

Do you know that the Bible says that Jesus has a GOD that is above him? And that the God above Jesus is the same as your God? Let’s read it:

John 20:17
“Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.’”

The explanation of the arrangement is given plainly in 1 Corinthians 11:3

1 Corinthians 11: 3 – “But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ(Jesus), the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ(Jesus) is God.”

God>Jesus>Man>Woman>(Child). This is the plain reading of the scripture. There is no need for interpretation.

These things are written after Jesus Christ ascended to heaven, but if you want to read it even more plainly than this… While in Heaven Jesus Himself said that in Heaven, He STILL has a God. Let’s read the words of Jesus in revelation from Heaven.

Revelation 3:12 – “He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.”

Jesus said this to Mary while he was on earth(John 20:17) and Jesus again said the same thing to John while he is in Heaven(Revelation 3:12). This is the plain reading of the scriptures.

For further expansion on this matter, you can see here what Paul wrote to Timothy.

1 Timothy 2:5
“For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus”

One GOD and One Meditator between GOD and Man.

Another way this can be said is ONE GOD and One High Priest between GOD and Men(Hebrews 4:14-16). The Bible says that Jesus is our High Priest who meditates between us and GOD.

If you want to see this written even more plainly take a look at 1 Corinthians 8:6.

1 Corinthians 8:6
“yet for us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live.”

This says there is ONE GOD and ONE Lord. If you read the Old Testament you will see that the word ’LORD’ is always written with ALL capital letters when referring to GOD which is different from the “Lord” used in the New Testament.

You can see that plainly in the book of Psalms when David is Prophesying about a future event.

Psalm 110:1
“The LORD said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.”

In the original English translations, this says “The LORD” said to “My Lord”

One “LORD” Uses ALL capital letters and the other “Lord” with only a capital L. These are two different usages of the word. One used to describe Jesus and the other used to describe “The Father in Heaven”

Did you know that Jesus calls us his brothers? We are brothers with Jesus because we have the same GOD and the same Father. Let’s read it:

Matthew 28:10 –
“Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell My brethren to go to Galilee, and there they will see Me.”

Did you know that Jesus said he didn’t come to earth to do his own will, but rather the will of the Father in Heaven? Let’s read it:

John 5:30
“I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who SENT Me.”

John 6:38
“For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but to do the will of Him who SENT Me.”

Jesus says that he was SENT to earth. Do you know what the Bible says about the one that is SENT somewhere in relation to the one that sends them?

John 13:16
“Most assuredly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master; nor is he who is SENT greater than he who SENT him. If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.”

John 4:34
“Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who SENT Me, and to finish His work.

Jesus says that the SENDER is greater than the one who is sent by the sender. We know that GOD is the one who SENT Jesus because Jesus plainly tells us that in the scriptures written above. Jesus also plainly tells us that the Father in Heaven is greater than He(Jesus) is.

John 14:28
“You have heard Me say to you, ‘I am going away and coming back to you.’ If you loved Me, you would rejoice because I said, ‘I am going to the Father,’ for My Father is greater than I.”

For those that rebut to say “Jesus only said that because he was on the earth”. That’s not true because I also showed you the verse in Revelation in which Jesus says that the Father in Heaven is GOD above him even in Heaven.

For those that say “But the Bible says Jesus and GOD are one”

Yes indeed. The Bible also says when we believe in Jesus we are also ONE with GOD and Jesus.

John 17:21
that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.

Does that then make us all the same person? Or give us as humans the same status with GOD or Jesus? Because we are one with Jesus and GOD when we have faith in Jesus. Certainly not.

The Bible also says a Husband and Wife are to become ONE.

Markus 10:8
and the two shall become one flesh’; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh.

Does that mean the husband and wife are exactly the same? Or does it mean that the husband and wife are joined in purpose and united in the soul? Isn’t the husband Head of his wife?

Doesn’t the Bible say GOD is the head of Jesus? I’ll refer you back to 1 Corinthians 11:3 again:

1 Corinthians 11: 3 – “But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ(Jesus), the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ(Jesus) is God.”

Do you know that GOD says that Jesus is the servant of GOD? Thereby that makes GOD the Master of Jesus, and so as I just referenced the servant is not greater than his Master.

Matthew 12:18“Behold! My Servant whom I have chosen, My Beloved in whom My soul is well pleased! I will put My Spirit upon Him, And He will declare justice to the Gentiles.”

When Peter preaches the gospel look at how he began his sermon:

Acts 2:22
“Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a Man attested by God to you by miracles, wonders, and signs which God did through Him in your midst, as you yourselves also know—

Does your Bible teacher preach the gospel like Peter does or does he preach in a contrary way to Peter?

Peter when he preaches calls Jesus a “Man” and he says that GOD did miracles through Jesus. Paul also calls Jesus a man in 1 Timothy 2:5 that meditates between us and GOD(as our High Priest). Therefore when we Pray to GOD and fellowship with GOD Jesus is our mediator.

Do you know how the Bible instructs us to pray? I’ve often wondered if the reason some people aren’t getting their prayers answered is because they do not pray the way the Bible teaches them to pray.

Does the Bible teach us to pray to Jesus or to pray to GOD the Father? The Bible says pray to the Father in the name of Jesus. Here I will show you:

Matthew 6:6
“But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.”

Jesus says “Pray to your FATHER in Heaven”. Jesus is on earth teaching people to pray to the Father in Heaven.

Jesus while on Earth told his disciples to go into their rooms and pray to their Father in Heaven. When in the Garden Jesus was praying to HIS Father, and then told his disciples to wake up from their sleep and also pray to their Father in Heaven(Luke 22:46). If Jesus and the Father were exactly the same the disciples would be praying to Jesus on earth. Jesus would not need to tell them to wake up and pray to the Father in Heaven, Jesus would say “Pray to me I am right here”. But that’s not what is said. Jesus was praying to his Father saying “Not my will but your will be done(Luke 22:42)” and Jesus woke up the disciples up from their sleep and told them to also pray to the Father in Heaven just like Jesus was praying to the Father.

For this final portion, I’ll copy a segment from my previous post titled “Do You Pray According To The Teachings Of Jesus?”

John 16:23
“And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you.

Jesus said that you would not ask him for anything. Jesus said you will ask the FATHER in the name of Jesus. Jesus himself said you will not ask him, but you will ask the Father.

In the same chapter, Jesus goes on to say:

John 16:26-27
“In that day you will ask in My name, and I do not say to you that I shall pray the Father for you; for the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me, and have believed that I came forth from God.”

Jesus said he would not ask the Father for you. Jesus said you will ask the Father yourself because the Father also loves you.

Therefore Jesus taught us to pray to GOD Father in Heaven, Jesus does not in the Bible tell us to pray to Him (Jesus). Jesus said we will not ask Him, but we will ask our Father in Heaven using the name of Jesus because Jesus is the way to GOD.

Therefore we Pray “In the name of Jesus…Heavenly Father.”

And then we end our prayer “In the name of Jesus Amen”

This is stated even more clearly when the disciples ask Jesus “Can you teach us how to Pray?” And Jesus responding telling them how to pray saying this:

Matthew 6:9-10
“In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.”

Therefore the clear and plain teaching of Scripture from Jesus’s own words teaches us to Pray to the Father in Heaven while using the name of the Son(Jesus).

There is more to be said on this matter and more scriptures that perhaps I will get into in another post on another day, but that is all for now. Share this post if you feel led to. Like and Comment Below. Thank you All.

May GOD the Father of us, Bless you all who are in Christ Jesus the Lord of us.

Death is Your Enemy!! Do You Know The Solution!?

Do you understand why you get hungry every day? Do you know why you get thirsty each day? Do you know why you get tired at the end of each day? To answer these questions just look at what happens if you do not satisfy these urges. What happens if you don’t eat? What happens if you don’t kill other living things (Plants and Animals) so that you can eat? Do you live or do you die? What happens if you don’t quench your thirst with water for an extended period of time? Do you live or do you die? What happens if you ignore the feeling of tiredness and do not sleep? Do you live or die?

So why do you get hungry, thirsty, and sleepy? Because death is knocking at the door. And why is death knocking at the door? Because of sin. For the Bible says the wages of sin is death. If a man doesn’t eat, he will die. If a man doesn’t drink water he will die. If a man doesn’t sleep he will die.

For this reason, Jesus taught us that HE(Jesus) is the bread of life and that whoever does not eat HIM(Jesus) will die.

John 6:35
“And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger…”

For this reason, Jesus taught us that HE(Jesus) will give us the living water(John 4:10), and that whoever drinks HIS(Jesus) water will never thirst again.

John 6:35
“…and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.”

For this reason, Jesus taught us that HE(Jesus) is the true rest and whoever comes to HIM(Jesus) will receive REST.

Matthew 11:28
“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

What are the daily needs of each and every person on the earth? Food to eat, water to drink, and a shelter to sleep. What did Adam and Eve have before the fall in sin? Fruit to eat, a river to drink from, and a beautiful garden to sleep in. Everything was given to them freely. However after sin, man had to till the land and hunt/kill for food, dig deep into the ground to create wells for water, and they were removed from the beautiful garden and had to build shelter of their own. Man chose to no longer be sustained by GOD but decided to be sustained by their own “knowledge of good and evil” Therefore man had to put his own knowledge to work and fend for himself. No more God’s fruit, God’s river of life, or God’s shelter(garden).

*Sidebar*
Did you know that fruit is the only thing on the earth you can eat that doesn’t require death to occur for you to eat it? A fruit of the tree is the tree’s offering to you. The fruit is pure carbon. The tree is not harmed when someone gently removes its fruit. Therefore man originally was given fruit to eat because there was no sin and there was no death. However now that death has entered the world through sin, to consume fruit only would prove to be insufficient for many people, therefore now we are dependent on the life and death of other creatures to sustain our own lives. Look what sin has done…
*Sidebar*

However, in all of man’s knowledge man was still facing a problem that he could not solve. The problem of death that was caused by sin. When death comes knocking on the door of man’s stomach man could use his knowledge of hunting and farming to overcome death and eat food. When death comes because a man is thirsty man can use his filtering and digging knowledge to find water, and when death comes because a man is tired man can use his knowledge of construction to build a home. But what about death? Nowhere in man’s knowledge was the solution for death ever found.

Men have tried to solve this problem for thousands of years and failed. The stories of Dracula, vampires, Egyptian and pagan rituals, the “fountain of youth” drinking blood and more were all things man tried to do to escape death. Even today people like Elon Musk and others are attempting to become one with machines transfer their consciousness into robots in an attempt to live forever. Wealthy people have had their bodies frozen so they can be brought back to life if humans ever discover a solution to death.

However, the reason humans are struggling is because humans don’t know the two things that are important to solving this problem… The beginning and the end.

Beginning: Why is there death in the world? Sin.

End: What is the solution to death? Jesus.

There has been a solution to death for 2000 years, however just like in the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve rejected God’s provision and sought “Knowledge” on their own, Humans still today reject GOD’s provision, and want to use their “knowledge” to seek a solution on their own.

The Bible says “1 Corinthians 1:27 – “But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty”

Because with all of man’s wisdom and sophistication how could they have ever thought that the solution to hunger, thirst, shelter, and death could be found in one man named Jesus? Such a truth is far too simple and unscientific for the wise men of this world. But what does the Bible say about this:

1 Corinthians 2:14 – “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

In Conclusion:

Jesus is the true Garden of Eden. In Jesus we have bread/fruit, we have living water, we have rest, and we have life. In Jesus, we have escaped death. Although these physical bodies will perish, our souls will live forever and the consciousness that humans are seeking for a way to transfer into robots will be transferred by GOD when we receive our glorified bodies in the resurrection.

Jesus is the way, He is the truth and he is the life(John 14:6), man shall not live by bread alone, man must live by Jesus(Matthew 4:4). The perishable bread of this world can temporarily preserve your physical body, but it cannot preserve your soul. The pollutable water of this earth can only eliminate your thirst for a moment, but it can do nothing to quench the pangs of your soul. The most beautiful bed in the world can allow you to sleep, but it can never give you rest for your soul.

The bread of this earth can never be our savior, because this bread is rotting, molding, and perishing with each moment. And even after the bread is eaten after 3 or 4 hours its effect has disappeared and you will need to eat it again. The bread of this earth, the wood that humans use to build their homes is all affected by sin, it’s all dying. The wood is rotting, the metal is rusting, and the bread is molding. All these things we use to preserve this physical body are perishing the same way these bodies are perishing. How can these things save us? They are subject to the same conditions of sin and death just like humans.

However when we eat the bread of Jesus it will never rot or perish and by this bread, we will live for eternity. When we drink the living water from Jesus our souls will never be thirsty again, and when we enter the shelter of Jesus, we may get physically tired but our souls will forever be at rest.

Please Family. Place your trust and faith in Jesus. This world and the things in this world can not save you. When the body perishes your soul must go to one of two places. If you have life within your soul you will spring upwards toward life, but if there is death you will descend downward towards death. Jesus is the life, he is the only way, GOD has given us a solution. Accept Jesus today.

Thank you all. Share this post if you like.

God Bless you all who are in Christ Jesus.

Why Did GOD Create The Devil If He Knew The Future?

Whenever I hear about someone leaving Christianity I commonly hear that their reason is because they had questions about the Bible that no one could answer. Either that or they say they weren’t allowed to ask questions because their pastor would tell them not to question and challenge GOD. These people say they were made to feel like they had to believe everything blindly and weren’t allowed to have a voice. So when they become adults they rebel against this and search for a new way.

I can relate to this because a similar thing happened to me. I grew up being forced to go to church but once I became an adult and felt like I could think for myself I stopped going to church and began seeking GOD in my own way. I felt like the church’s way was just not for me, because it seemed like a bunch of religious rituals without a real relationship with GOD.

A few of the questions I had at that time were “Why would GOD make the tree of the knowledge of good evil if he knew it could cause Adam and Eve to sin?” Why did God create the potential for man to sin? Why didn’t GOD just make no forbidden fruit and let Adam and Eve happily live in the garden forever? And if GOD is all-knowing, why did he create the Angel Lucifer if he knew that he would sin against him?” “Is this just all a game?”

I had these questions and more, and until I was born again I didn’t know the answers, however, the closer I drew near to GOD the more potential answers to these questions became more obvious to me.

And before I explain some of these things let me first say that I don’t believe Christians have to live in mystery and confusion without answers because the Bible tells us that we can know and understand GOD. In fact GOD wants us to know him, and wants us to seek him for answers. Here are the scriptures:

Matius 7:7-8 – “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.”

The Bible tells us that if we seek we will find and if we persist in asking we will receive what we ask for. Therefore I must conclude that the people who ask the infamous questions above are not truly seeking the answers. Those questions are simply their excuse to reject the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Even when I had those questions as a teenager I was not genuinely seeking the answers, but I was simply and pridefully trying to corner the older Christians by trying to ask them questions I thought they couldn’t answer.

Was GOD supposed to give an answer to an arrogant prideful teenager boasting about no one being able to answer his questions? Of course not. GOD doesn’t owe me anything. The Bible says GOD humbles the proud and exalts the humble(James 4:6). Therefore if I would have remained like that and GOD didn’t show me mercy I would have perished in my ignorance and died without knowing.

What else does the Bible say?

Yeremia 9:23-24 “Thus says the LORD: “Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, Let not the mighty man glory in his might, Nor let the rich man glory in his riches; But let him who glories glory in this, That he understands and knows Me..”

The Bible says never boast in the things of this world but “IF” you boast about anything, boast that you understand GOD, and that you KNOW GOD. Therefore GOD wants us to know him, and GOD wants us to seek him. I don’t believe GOD is hiding the answers to these common questions from his children. But are you genuinely dedicating time to seeking GOD before you say you don’t have an answer? How much time are you spending in prayer? How much time do you spend in worship alone? How much time do you spend studying your Bible?

I’ve found that the majority of the people with these questions have never even read the entire Bible from cover to cover and have never spent even an hour in prayer. Maybe they skimmed through the Bible and prayed for 5 minutes and gave up when an answer was not given instantly. We spend more time on social media than we do seeking GOD and then expect GOD to reward us for giving less effort toward him than we do the things of this world.

James 4:8 – “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.”

If you draw near to GOD he will draw near to you. You don’t have to seek GOD perfectly but give effort! Spend time! Dedicate a portion of your morning or evening.

And finally this verse:

I Corinthians 2:9-10 – “But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.”

The Bible says that no one knows the deep things of GOD except those who have the spirit of GOD, because the spirit searches even the hidden things of GOD. Therefore if you have the spirit of GOD, the knowledge of GOD is accessible for you. But is your heart truly set on desiring knowledge about GOD? Is this your focus and desire? Many of these mysterious things are hidden from the world, but they are not hidden from GOD’s children who have the spirit of GOD.

Therefore, with all that being said… Why? Why did GOD make the devil if he knew the devil would sin against him? And why did GOD make the forbidden fruit if he knew it could lead Adam and Eve to sin and death?

Have you ever read the Bible where Jesus says everything he sees the Father in Heaven doing, Jesus also does?

John 5:19 – “Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.”

And then did you also read that Jesus called Judas “A Devil” long before Judas betrayed him? Jesus already knew Judas was a devil when he first selected him.

John 6:70 – “Jesus answered them, “Did I not choose you, the twelve, and one of you is a devil?”

Do you see the connection there? GOD made Lucifer, even though he knew he would betray him, and Jesus chose Judas to be his disciple even though he knew Judas would betray him. Jesus says whatever he sees the Father doing he also does. Jesus also says he lost Judas only so that the scriptures could be fulfilled(John 17:12).

But why any of this? Why the forbidden fruit? Why sin?

Let me ask you…

What does it take for a human child to be born on the earth? It takes a man and a woman coming from two different homes to come together, then an engagement, then a wedding, then consummation, in which the virgin woman sheds her blood to form a covenant with her husband. And then there is a race in which millions of sperm cells are racing to reach the one egg in her womb, but only one sperm wins the race and receives the “crown of life” to become a child.

And what does the Bible say:

“Matthew 22:14 – ““For many are called, but few are chosen.”

Many sperm cells enter into the womb but only FEW cells are chosen to become children on the earth.

Then after this, a woman must suffer the pains of rearing a child, vomiting, contractions, swollen feet, a widened noise, hormonal changes, and so much more, and then she must endure the pain of birthing the child. And after the child is born all her labor is forgotten and rejoices over there being a new child in the world.

Do you see the parallel here in the story of Jesus? Jesus came to earth, born from a virgin, he endured and he suffered and shed his blood to establish a covenant with us so that we could be REBORN as the children of GOD.

Therefore when I ask you, what does take to make a human child? You read above about the long and bitter-sweet and painful process needed to create a human that will only live for 100 years.

Now what if I asked you “What does it take to make a child of GOD that will live forever and ever?”

If what is written above is ALL that must take place to create a flesh and blood human being to live for only 120 years, what is ALL that must take place to create a child of the MOST HIGH GOD that will live for ALL eternity?

What if ALL that you’ve seen happening on the earth from the beginning until now is this similar process… What if THIS is how true children of GOD are made? What if ALL of this Pain, suffering, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunamis and more is the entire process of growing children in this world’s womb so that the children of GOD can be born out of this world?

What if ALL of this was for YOU?

Would you still question GOD then?

If ALL of this was GOD’S plan to create HIS children who he would spend all eternity with, as our loving Father, awaiting to share ALL his goodness with us. What if GOD was bearing with ALL the wickedness and evil in the world because he was waiting for YOU to be born? And not just born from your mother, but truly BORN FROM GOD.

Acts 14:22 “We must endure many hardships to enter the kingdom of God”

Romans 8:17 says we will be gloried with Jesus IF we suffer together with him. Therefore what if ALL you had to go through was a part of the birthing pains for you to be FULLY Born as a child of GOD? Would you now endure and rejoice because now you know part of the purpose of it all?

Conclusion:

Remember what GOD says before creating the first Human being:

Genesis 1:26 – “Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness”

Think about a husband and a wife after establishing a covenant of marriage… They look at each other and say “Let us create a child together in our own image and likeness”. And then the wife undergoes all the suffering needed for their children to be born.

Now think of Jesus, enduring, suffering, and giving his life on the cross so that you can be REBORN out of death and into life. Reborn as a child of GOD.

What if GOD bore with great patience for thousands and thousands of years waiting for his children to be born? A woman only bears patiently for 9 months for her child, but how long has GOD bore patiently waiting for his? How gloriously, holy and mighty is Our Father and Our GOD.

There are other answers to these questions also that I may write about later, but this is one answer that I believe is most fitting to lay the foundation for the topics of the future.

Thank you ALL for reading. Share this post if you want.

God bless you all who are in Christ Jesus.
