The Image Of God

17 Jan

January 16, 2014

Well i met a few more Christians and i begin to realize something about Christians in general. There are about 10,000 different kinds, and they all seem to disagree, at least about a few things. And sometimes they disagree about many more things. I begin to realize how much bad doctrine is out there, that people not only have been taught, but that unfortunately, they also believe! Then they continue passing on bad doctrine and perpetuate the fraud.

I also realized a few other things about Christians, and that is that either they don’t read their Bibles, or else they don’t understand their Bibles. Because i have heard that many Christians believe in things that go AGAINST Scripture! Now how can that church be saved, if they don’t believe in and follow Jesus teachings? How can they get to Heaven if they mislead people and cause people to become lost? Now i am beginning to see first hand, how all the churches are in apostasy, and i begin to understand the need for the New Church. The new Church will be without spot and without blemish. There will be no false teachings in the New Church. The New Church will only follow the Gospel of Jesus and Jesus’ teachings.

I have already spoken, or rather written about the Babylonian practices committed by Christians every EAster, Christmas, Halloween, etc etc etc. The churches put idols and images right in their own Christian churches and think it is OK to have images of pagan gods in the House of the Lord. Like i said, i think many people have not received the Gift of being able to understand the Bible. Because if they did, they would realize how much they have strayed away from the Scriptural teachings of Jesus. An example i used is that you don’t see the local churches going to the local schools and telling the students to NOT join the military and kill their brothers, because if they do they are breaking the second most important commandment, and they will become lost. No, in America, the churches don’t stand up and teach Jesus commandments to love your neighbor as your self. They send their own kids off to war, while going to church every Sunday and calling themselves “Christians”. However, i’m afraid that they don’t even know what that means.

A nother good example of false teachings and bad doctrine i seem to hear a lot lately is that people try telling me that God is not three separate individuals, but that God is only one Being, represented by the Father, the Son and the HOly Ghost. Now when i keep hearing this, it almost makes me feel kind of angry. But then i have to stop and think – because i have the distinct and commanding advantage that i KNOW exactly who God is. I have heard God speak to me, my Heavenly Mother spoke to me in Her Voice, She touched me, and made me do things, and i have heard Jesus speak to me directly in His Voice and i have previously as early as 2003 heard the Voice of God when He spoke to me directly. In 2003 i “saw” the Hand of God do things. When i realized i had seen the Hand of God, i immediately thought to myself “I have seen the Hand of God!” and i was amazed extremely and i immediately then heard God’s Voice say to me, my Heavenly Father said “And don’t you ever forget it!” and He sounded firm! And i never did forget it. And now, years later, i have also heard my Heavenly Mother’s Voice and i have also heard Jesus speak to me. So i have a distinct advantage over most people, because i KNOW for a fact who God is. And so i have to temper my strong feelings i get when i hear the false teachings that are coming out of all places – the churches! How aggravating is that?

And not only are these false teachings so incredibly wrong and false doctrine, but if anyone would bother to read their Bible, they should be able to easily discern the difference between what the Bible says and how it compares to their false teachings. But maybe many people don’t have the Gift of Understanding, and so maybe understanding Scripture is easy for me, but not for others. But it just seems so simple that it seems to me that anyone could understand it if they only have basic reading skills. Now i can quickly and easily forgive anybody who mistakenly accepts false teachings out of sheer ignorance. That is, they thought they were doing what was best, but in reality, they just didn’t know any better. However, i don’t feel as quick to forgive the churches for teaching people wrong and spreading false doctrines! Certainly i can forgive any people – even my own enemies. But how can i forgive a church that teaches false doctrine and leads people away from Heaven and straight into hell? I don’t think i can. Jesus said to forgive our brothers, but Jesus didn’t say anything about forgiving churches that lead people astray and cause them to lose their souls for Eternity – either intentionally or through ignorance and closed-mindedness.

Now the thing is, i would forgive the churches for teaching the people false doctrines and leading people astray – but ONLY if they stop their bad practices, repent, and begin teaching people the True Teachings of Jesus Christ, from the New Testament! But that’s the only way i would forgive them!

So now let’s take a closer look to see if Scripture gives us any clues about who God is. Does Scripture tell us if God is one Being, or Three? There is only ONE place that has the correct answer, and that is Scripture. So we pray to God and ask God to explain to us if God is one person, or is God Three? Then God answered us by directing us to certain SCriptures that contain the answers we seek.

Now having read quite a lot of the Bible in the past two years, much of it is still somewhat fresh in my memory. That is very key to receiving the Gift of Understanding. And that is you must read your Bible and try to understand things. Ask and you shall receive. If you do not put any effort into it, you won’t get any thing out of it. So before we can begin to tell people that we believe this or that, or that the Bible says this or that, we must first learn. Then we know. We read the SCriptures to Learn what they say. Otherwise, we don’t even know what we are talking about.

Now i have a question to ask you. Do you go downtown and just pick some random guy, maybe some guy you don’t even know, and hand this stranger your wallet with your money and bank cards and tell him to manage your finances? Did you say No? Well if you said No, then why in the world would you do the same thing and ask some stranger to manage your Spiritual affairs and arrange your way into Heaven? Don’t you think this is so important that you should take care of it yourself instead of letting someone else decide where you are going to spend Eternity? If you are afraid of losing your money, aren’t you afraid of losing your soul, and your inheritance in Heaven? Isn’t your Spiritual life more important than your bank finances? If you don’t trust some stranger with your money, how in thee world can you entrust your Eternal Life with some stranger?

Especially when so many churches are passing out false doctrine and bad teachings! Now, let me just take a moment to calm myself down.

Now if you do allow someone else to do your research for you, and to do your “understanding” for you, well then you at least need to verify their work, and you need to verify that they are doing what is correct, and teaching you the proper teachings! And since you have to do all that, it just doesn’t even make sense to let someone else do all this for you, when you have to verify everything anyway.

OK, so now we understand that we need to read the Scriptures and study them to receive understanding. Now we are going to search Scriptures to find out what God says about His Being. When EVER we want to know something about God, the ONLY way to find out is to ask God. We read His Word to find out what He Says. This may be a different concept than they teach in some of the churches. But it is the ONLY way to learn Scripture. You cannot learn what the Scriptures teach by watching TV.

I was thinking about how to answer this question, about who God really is, and i thought probably we’d get the best answer if we asked some children. Maybe some five year olds. But it depends on what they have been taught. It depends on what people have taught the children about God, or if the children have just watched TV all their life.

So who is God? First of all i will try to use logic to answer this question. We can solve many answers just by using logic. So first of all we’re going to take a little quiz.

1. How many “people” is a father?

A. 1
B. 250
C. 10,000
D. 10 million

2. How many “people” is a son?

A. 1
B. 250
C. 10,000
D. 10 million

3. How many “people” is a father AND a son?

A. 2
B. 10,000
C. 10 million
D. 500 billion

4. Is it possible that a father and a son are the EXACT same person?

A. No

The answers are 1-A, 2-A, 3-A, 4-A

Analyzing the answers to this quiz, we can quickly see that God is the Father AND the SON, then God is AT LEAST TWO DIFFERENT ENTITIES. If we say that God is ALSO the Holy Spirit, then we should be able to easily see that God is made up of THREE DIFFERENT ENTITIES. We solved this quite easily using simple logic. However, nothing can really be proven UNLESS it is supported by Scripture, so we will now find what Scripture says about this.

Now i don’t have space to print all the SCriptures that refer to God as more than one entity, so i picked just a few. Lets take a look at these SCriptures to see if we can find the answers.

Matthew Chapter 26

36 ¶ Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane,
and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.
37 And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and
began to be sorrowful and very heavy.
38 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even
unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.
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.

Here in Matthew, Jesus is praying to His Father. Now how can Jesus be praying to Himself? If so, He would not need to pray to Himself. This is very clear that the Father and the Son are TWO separate Entities. Otherwise, Who is Jesus praying to?

In Mark we read how Jesus is taken up to Heaven, and Jesus sits on the right Hand of God. Now how can Jesus do this, unless Jesus and God are two, separate Entities?

Mark Chapter 16

19 ¶ So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received
up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

Mark gives us another clear image in Chapter 13, where Jesus says that no one knows the hour, no man, no angels, not the Son but ONLY the Father. So if Jesus doesn’t know all the same stuff that His Father knows, then they HAVE to be TWO SEPARATE Entities!

Mark Chapter 13

28 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender,
and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near:
29 So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass,
know that it is nigh, even at the doors.
30 Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all
these things be done.
31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass
away.
32 ¶ But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the
angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.

Jesus clearly tells us that He does NOT know everything His Father knows. Because they are TWO SEPARATE BEINGS.

In Chapter 3 below we read how the Holy Spirit descended on Jesus, out of the Heavens! And a Voice spoke out of the Heavens! So it obviously wasn’t Jesus up in Heaven, speaking down to Himself, but it was the Holy Spirit. It was Jesus’ Heavenly Mother, the Holy Spirit. Again, clearly showing that Jesus is separate from the Holy Spirit. TWO SEPARATE ENTITIES !

Matthew Chapter 3

13 ¶ Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be
baptized of him.
14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee,
and comest thou to me?
15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for
thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.
16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the
water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the
Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in
whom I am well pleased.

Well here we have quite a few references where Jesus is clearly shown to be separate from His Father. I could go on and on. There are many, many references, and then we can even go read other Gospels, such as the Gospel of the Hebrews, and the Essene Gospels. But we really don’t have to. This very basic concept is clearly defined and demonstrated to us many times in the New Testament.

Now what does Heavenly Father say about this? Let’s look in Genesis, the first Book of the Bible, the first chapter, the 26th verse. This is what God says:

GEnesis Chapter 1

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

God said “Let US make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness”. God is not singular. God is plural, God tells us this very clearly. God speaks of Himself as US, and OUR, because God is not just the Heavenly Father, but God is also the Heavenly MOther AND also Jesus. All Three are God. They are all Three separate.

Also in verse 27 God, who we now know is plural, (US and OUR), God made man in His Own Image, in the image of God created He him; MALE and FEMALE created He them, “after OUR LIKENESS”.

God made man in His IMage, God created man MALE and FEMALE, so therefore, the image of God is MALE AND FEMALE. God tells us this DIRECTLY in the very first book and the very first chapter and on the very first page of the Holy Bible! It is clearly spelled out for anyone who can read and who may be seeking understanding. For anyone to deny this is to deny God and deny God’s Word. And remember, blasphemy of the HOly Spirit can be unforgiveable!

Matthew Chapter 12

30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not
with me scattereth abroad.
31 ¶ Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy
shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy
Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.
32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall
be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it
shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world
to come.
33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the
tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.

So we can clearly understand from Scripture that God is Heavenly Father, Heavenly Mother AND Jesus. THREE separate Entities. Heavenly Father has the Keys to Heaven and to hell. Heavenly MOther has the Keys to Heaven and the Keys to hell. Jesus has the Keys to Heaven and Jesus ALSO has the Keys to hell. This is who God is. God is not singular. God is our Heavenly Family. The Father, the Son AND the HOly Ghost. Because God created man in His Own Image, and this is a nother example of how it is the same on Earth as it is in Heaven. Because we ARE the Image of God.

It’s not real complicated and technical and confusing. No, it is very very simple and easy to understand, even for a child.
