Jesus is the one invisible God


Tue, Feb 17, 2015

Editor: There is a subtle insinuation among modern day worshippers that Jesus brought us grace whereas the father was harsh and exacting. People need to recognize that Jesus is the one invisible God, the divine Father who came to this world in flesh, as the son of God and not as God the son. In the book of Revelation, He declares Himself as ‘the alpha and the omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.{{more}} ‘ Drunken with the wine of Babylon, the traditions so long passed down to us, it is nigh impossible for some of us to grasp this sobering concept about the mystery of the Godhead. It is only when this is fully understood (grasped through faith) that we will be able to bury some of the falsehoods sold to us about God by the enemy of souls. (Let me say here that I am in no way deluded into believing that what I write may lead you towards change; some of you may not even read this to the end. Jesus warned us in the parable of the rich man and Lazarus, that ‘ if they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither would they be persuaded though one rose from the dead. Again in the parable of the sower He showed us that some would hear the word and would allow the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches to drown out the effects.) (Matthew 13: 22, Luke 16:31 )

John records in his book, John 1: 3, that ‘all things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made, that was made.’ Doesn’t this make Him the creator? Isaiah declares ‘The Lord is our judge, the Lord is OUR LAWGIVER , the Lord is our King, He will save us.’ James says ‘there is one lawgiver, who is able to save and destroy…’ In Exodus 34:9 it is chronicled ‘…And the Lord passed by before him (Moses) and proclaimed, The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, long-suffering, and abundant in goodness and truth.’ Psalm 119 : 142 proclaims ‘Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and THY LAW is THE TRUTH.’ Grace and truth existed long before Pentecost. Out goes the myth that the dispensation of grace began when the dispensation of law ended. It is only when you recognize that you have broken the law that you need God’s grace. If it were possible for you to live a sinless life before you come to God, then you need not the grace God offers. Jesus told some of His distractors, ‘I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.’ My point here is that the one who created the earth, who gave the commandments on Sinai, is the same one who came to Calvary to die so that we can be saved by His grace.

Revelation 14: 6 and 7 John writes: ‘And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven having THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every kindred and tongue and people. Saying with a loud voice, Fear God and give glory to Him; for the hour of His judgement is come: and worship Him who made the heavens and the earth, and the sea and the fountains of water.’ Revelation is a book filled with images; the angels here are not the heavenly angels; angels here are messengers of God. God only uses men who have sinned to bear His messages to those who are as sinful as they are. Note here to there is a call to worship God as creator, take away the fourth commandment and you get rid of God as creator; hence the loud cry. Don’t you always hear people ask ‘Why are you always talking about Sabbath? The answer is that it needs to be shouted a lot more.

Noah found grace in His (God’s) eyes Genesis 6:8. The people of Nineveh were saved by grace, not by law. In the book of Lamentations 3: 22, 23, one reads:’ It is of the Lord’s mercies (grace) that we are not consumed, because His compassion fail not. They are new every morning, great is thy faithfulness.’

Adam, Noah, Abraham, Jacob, Moses and the others of the patriarchs fully grasped the idea of being saved by grace through faith; they knew that Christ is the end of the LAW FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS, not of righteousness (Ephesians 2: 8, Romans 10:4). They saw in every spotless lamb, every unleavened bread, every drop of unfermented wine, the salvation that was to come through Christ.

Until next week, if it be the will of God, my prayer is that you take hold of the book and let God’s Spirit lead you to a saving knowledge of it.
