Oh, what a majestic God He is. Full of splendour and majesty. Worthy of all honour and praise, and devotion and obedience and loyalty and faith and all our love.✨

…And, can you even grasp the fact that He loves us with a great and mighty, yet intimate and tender, and beautifully forgiving, compassionate and jealous, faithful never ending everlasting love???💕

Oh He’s so amazing. He deserves more than we could ever give Him.✨

This God, by the word of His mouth created the stars and holds them in His hands. He also holds your heart.💕

How marvelous! how wonderful!
And my song shall ever be
How marvelous! how wonderful!
Is my Savior’s love for me!🎵

{Psalm 8:3}
When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

Never stop seeking this glorious King of the Heavens and Earth. Never stop chasing Him. He’s more worthy than anything else in this existence. Nothing compares. He’s incomparable…

And, praise Jesus, He’s knowable.✨🙌🏼💗😭

IS JESUS CHRIST GOD? [Part 2]

IS JESUS CHRIST GOD

In our last article, we asked the question of The Lord Jesus’s deity as God and looked at some scriptures which support Him as God. Click here If you missed the first article. For quick reference these are the scriptures we looked at (John 1:1–3, John 1:14, Genesis 1:3, John 3:19, Isaiah 9:6, Matthew 3:16–17, Exodus 3:14, John 8:33, John 8:56–58).

We are familiar with the Gospel message, but for the sake of those who might not be, I’ll quickly explain.

Gospel
The definition: εὐαγγέλιον euangélion, yoo-ang-ghel’-ee-on; a good message, i.e. the gospel: — gospel. Or simply “the gospel” in plain words means good news or glad tidings, the message is the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus. The apostle Paul wrote in his epistle to the church at Corinth to the fact of Christ’s resurrection. Jesus Christ through His work on the cross has defeated sin and death, is triumphant and seated at the right hand of God. And offers you eternal life by trusting in His sacrifice, dying for you paying a great price by taking the judgement you and I deserve as guilty sinners. God gave His Son as a ransom for whosoever believes in Him will have everlasting life.

1 Corinthians 15:3–4 “For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”

Romans epistle
In the book of Romans which is the sixth in chronological order of Paul’s epistles written in Corinth during his third visit, he writes in chapter 10 the explanation of Israels failure to keep the promises of God by their unbelief. The chapter opens up with Paul’s desire and prayer for Israel.

Romans 10:1 “Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.”

Romans 10:9 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”

If you might have noticed in that verse we see that “God hath raised him from the dead,” keep this in mind because the following verse will show where Jesus makes another claim of being God.

Gospel of John
Here’s another portion of scripture speaking of when Jesus went into the temple and turned over the tables of the moneychangers, these were men involved with selling in the temple and dealt unfairly, they were hated among the Jews.

John 2:12–15 “After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples: and they continued there not many days. And the Jews’ passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem, And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables;”

The Synoptic Gospels 

Matthew: Since the times of the early church fathers, the apostle Matthew has always been accredited with the authorship of the first gospel (canonically). Even the title “According to Matthew” (KATA MAQQAION) is found in the earliest manuscripts, and was the most highly regarded and quoted of the gospels by the church fathers. Matthew is also called Levi (Mark 2:14Luke 5:27), and was the son of Alphaeus (Luke 5:27). He was a tax collector (telwnhV), probably stationed on a main trade route near Capernaum where he would have collected tolls for Herod Antipas from commercial traffic. Additionally, being a tax collector might better qualify Matthew for his role as an official recorder of the life and actions of Christ. After the resurrection there is no other mention of him in the New Testament. – Blueletterbible

Mark: Though the author does not directly identify himself, there is still strong evidence to attribute the Gospel to John Mark. In addition to Markan composition, church fathers also state that Mark was the interpreter of Peter, which would give reason to believe that he wrote his Gospel under the guidance or assistance of the apostle. Like the other Gospels, the title “According to Mark” (KATA MARKON) is found in the earliest manuscripts.

With only ten verses in the New Testament making mention of John Mark, it is surprising that there is still enough information to create a sufficient biographical sketch of him. Besides being the author of the second Gospel, he was the cousin of Barnabas (Col 4:10) and the son of the Mary who provided a meeting place for early Christians (Acts 12:12). Some have even speculated that John Mark was the young man at the garden of Gethsemane during the betrayal of Jesus (Mark 14:51-52). What is certain is that John Mark accompanied Barnabas and Saul on the first missionary journey (Acts 12:25Acts 13:5), but departed early for Jerusalem (Acts 13:13). After the Jerusalem Council, Barnabas and Paul were planning on making their second journey. Barnabas wanted to take John Mark, but Paul opposed the idea because Mark had departed from them on the first Journey. Consequently, Barnabas took John Mark, and Paul took Silas and the two groups went their separate ways (Acts 15:36-41). After Barnabas gave his cousin a second chance, Paul was later able to call him a coworker (Philem 24Col 4:10) who was helpful to his ministry (2 Tim 4:11). It is also evident that Mark shared a special relationship with Peter. Not only does Peter call him his son (1 Pet 5:13), but they have both experienced failure and restoration. – Blueletterbible

IS JESUS CHRIST GOD 2

Luke: The Gospel according to Luke exhibits several differences from the other Synoptic Gospels. For instance, Luke is the only Gospel to have a sequel, the Acts of the Apostles. These two books are often referred to as a single unit called Luke-Acts. Another difference between Luke and the other Synoptics is the prologue (1:1-4). Luke’s prologue can also be called an exordium, which is a literary device that was also used by other Greek writers. There is a striking similarity between the structure of Josephus’ Against Apion and Luke-Acts. Not only does the prologue enable readers to better understand the purpose of the Gospel, but it also makes the destination clear. Unfortunately, and in a similar fashion to the other Synoptics, the author does not directly identify himself within the text. On the other hand there is enough internal and external evidence to conclude that it was written by Luke the physician. Because the book of Acts is the sequel to Luke, it should be considered when trying to define the author. In certain sections of Acts, the author uses the first person plural in the narrative (Acts 16:10-1720:5-1521:1-827:1-28:16). These are usually referred to as the we-sections and would indicate that the author of Acts accompanied Paul at these times. Luke is the only one that would fit into this mold according to Paul’s epistles. Externally, even the earliest manuscripts support the title “According to Luke” (KATA LOUKAN). Much of early church tradition also believed that Luke wrote this Gospel. – Blueletterbible

John: The Apostle John is usually credited with the authorship of the fourth Gospel. First of all, the author had to have been an eyewitness of the ministry of Jesus (1:1419:3521:24). He would have also had a decent familiarity with Palestine before the destruction of the temple in AD 70, and would have been familiar with the Jewish way of life. John the Apostle does fit the description, but it is not exclusive to him. Early traditions help to identify the author as John. Irenaeus, a disciple of John’s disciple Polycarp, is of the earliest extant sources to associate John with the fourth Gospel. Like the other Gospels, the title “According to John” (KATA IWANNHN) is found in the earliest manuscripts.

John and his brother James, accompanied by their father Zebedee, were preparing their nets in a boat when Jesus called them. Both James and John left the boat and their father to follow Jesus (Matt 4:18-22). Jesus often took Peter, James, and John aside defining them as an inner circle of disciples (13:23-2420:2-1021:2720.). Not only is John counted among this select group, but he also refers to himself as the disciple whom Jesus loved 13:2320:221:720). After the resurrection of Jesus, John continued to play an instrumental role in the early church. Paul referred to Peter, James, and John as the pillars of the church in Jerusalem (Gal 2:9). John is found with Peter going to the temple when Peter healed the crippled man (Acts 3:1-11). As a result both men went before the Sanhedrin (Acts 4:1-23). Peter and John later travelled up to Samaria to confirm the work that was going on there (Acts 8:14-24). – Blueletterbible

The following verses are from the four Gospels, reading carefully we see that in Matthew, Mark and Luke the Lord Jesus says “My house” but when we come to John’s account of the Gospel we read Jesus says “My Father’s house” speaking of the temple in which they perverted the temple sacrifices selling of merchandise i.e. sheep and oxen.

Matthew 21:13 “And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.”

Mark 11:17 “And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.”

Luke 19:46 “Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves.”

John 2:16 “And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise.”

In that moment the religious Pharisee’s asked Jesus by what authority is He doing this by, in plain words what gives Him the right to do this? They then asked for Him to show a sign of His authority. At the end of the next verse, we see how it connects with Romans 10:9 in the previous passage saying “God hath raised Him from the dead” now Jesus is saying in this verse “and in three days I will raise it up”, He was speaking of the temple of His body.

John 2:18–19 “Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things? Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”

Philippians epistle
In the book to the Philippians, the apostle Paul writes to the church at Phillippi teaching the believers of the pattern, in lowly service in Christ Jesus and how we are to rejoice in it. Paul mentions the fact of Christ being in the form of God said it’s not considered robbery for Jesus to be equal with God. Remember what was mentioned in the first article about not confusing nature with position or order.

Philippians 2:5–11 “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

Who but God can make such bold statements of calling all people unto Himself and giving them rest? Or no man knows the Father except the Son or the Son except the Father, and it’s up to the Son if He wills to reveal that? If anyone else would make these statements would be utter blasphemy on that person’s part. These speak directly to the deity of Jesus Christ.

Matthew 11:28–30 “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

Luke 10:22 “All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him.”

The Book of Titus
Another powerful verse is found in the book of Titus speaking of God’s salvation to us and our response in living a life of righteousness because of the amazing grace of God.

Titus 2:11–13 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

IS JESUS CHRIST GOD 3

During the Passover Jesus and the apostles are together in the chamber and Jesus foretells His coming for His own. Philip has asked the Lord Jesus to shew them the Father. Jesus tells them He and the Father are one, these are wonderful statements which give insight as to who Jesus is.

John 14:9 “Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?”

We also can’t forget what happened after the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus at Calvary, when after three days He was resurrected, the resurrected glorious Christ. And He showed Himself to the apostles for the first time but one of the apostles Thomas was not there. The other apostles told Him Christ has risen from the dead but he was doubting and said he didn’t believe. The Lord appears again speaking to Thomas in the verse below and Thomas confessing Him (Jesus) as Lord and God.

John 20:25 “The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.”

John 20:27–29 “Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.”

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading these biblical truths about the Lord Jesus Christ and that at the very least you’ll go away with a better understanding of who He is and that this will encourage you to read your Bible more and see for yourself who the Son of God is. The Lord will bless His word, thank you and God bless.

Why aren’t more Christians sharing the Gospel?

sharing the gospel-3

Ephesians 2:2 “Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:”

Not long ago NYC celebrated it’s 48th pride parade June 23–25, a sad sight to behold. Droves of men and women flocked to the city to be loud, immoral and dance the day away. People from all walks of life lost in darkness blinded by their sin.

Strolling around this city the first few days back from living overseas I was shocked, to say the least. Being fully aware the Supreme Court of the United States ruled in favour of same-sex marriage was one thing but it’s still shocking to see the downward spiral of man. As pride flags hung on the front door of some churches and people making comments saying God condones same-sex marriage is far from the truth. God never condones sin!

Feeling the sorrow inside for these people who are enemies of God. God calls sodomy an abomination, it’s a sin against His creation. Same-sex relationships are just as wrong as lying, fornication, murder, violence, blasphemy etc. Little do they realize they are on the broad road to eternal destruction (hell).

Romans 1:26–28 “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;”

Society is quick to call a person who speaks out against sin a “judgemental” or “hateful”. The devil has used “political correctness” to keep believers of Christ quiet. As Christians, we’re not hating anyone we’re warning you of the consequences you’ll face for going against God. We love all people and because we love we warn them out of love for them.

My brothers and sisters, I know sharing the Gospel with the lost can be uncomfortable, you don’t want to be hated or scoffed at. But you have to ask yourself this question when you face God and he asks you why didn’t you share the Gospel what will you say? We must speak out against all sin and share the good news how that Christ died for us opening the door of salvation to anyone who believes.

Mark 16:15 “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”

That’s a commandment from the Lord Jesus Christ, it’s not an option. I’m not saying you have to be an open air preacher, but you should be sharing the Gospel one way or the other. Whether that’s through one on one, or passing out tracks, social media, writing blogs, anything that gets the Gospel message out.

Romans 10:15 “And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!”

As encouragement start speaking out, maybe gather some fellow friends who are believers and share God’s love with people, they need to know God offers them eternal life. Speak the truth in love. God bless.

Appreciate the Creator

We grow up with food as our source of sustenance that keeps us alive. Because we essentially “eat” from our mother’s womb, food is just…well, food. That delicious stuff we put in our mouths, that stuff that keeps us alive, and it’s just there. From a “big bang” billions of trillions of billions of ions ago, with no cause, no intelligent Creator who created food to nourish us creatures. This beautiful food that’s keeping us alive is just here by accident, right??

No, not by accident, but by design.

We never really acquire a wonder and awe for something that is such a part of our lives and something we’re surrounded with every single day. It just is. Nothing special – it just is.

That is, until we come to know our Creator through His saving grace. The natural world around us then goes from purposeless to purposeful.

When we’re saved and begin a true, real, living relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, we’re reset as humans and we are made completely new creations. Because of this, we see the world as entirely different than before. We come to truly appreciate the beauty in creation.

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
2 Corinthians 5:17

What was once just bland everyday existence becomes the most colourful, vibrant life. We once looked at the natural world as not special because we didn’t know the Creator. Loving and being loved by the God who made food (amongst other things) opens our eyes to the beauty of it. Only when we truly appreciate God can we then truly appreciate food. We won’t truly appreciate anything until we truly appreciate God.

IMG-6057

Food is so beautiful, and that’s because it’s the creation of a beautiful Creator who  loves us. He nourishes us and cares for us abundantly. He didn’t have to bless us with colours, tastes, and nutrition that heals us and keeps us thriving, but He did.

And it says so much about Him. He’s loving, full of grace, tender, caring, creative, providing, and oh so beautiful beyond our ability to fathom or comprehend.

Look at creation around you and appreciate the Creator – the Lord Jesus Christ by whom all things were made. Existence and life is emptiness and death without Him.

“In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.”
Colossians 1:14-17

Look at creation differently, and come to appreciate the Creator of all of this beauty. It is in no way by accident, it is all in existence by the Word of His mouth, that is the Lord Jesus Christ, the Creator of Heaven and Earth.

John 8:58 (Scripture Illustration)

Sharing the progress I’m making on the John 8:58 drawing I’ve been working on. After I complete the pencils and the ink work I’ll most likely copy this over into Illustrator in order to further develop this with the hopes of making it available for anyone who would like to have one for themselves.

John 8:58

The Person of Christ: His Underived Eternal Sonship 
The words of the Lord in John chapter 8:58 could not be clearer: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.” Note that it proves conclusively that our Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son. Repeatedly in this chapter He has been speaking of God as “My Father.” Now this climactic statement of the chapter shows that this is eternally so. If there was a time when He came into being, He would have said, “Before Abraham was, I was.” The verbs translated “was” and “am” are not the same, and they show that the meaning of the statement is “Before Abraham came to be, I exist.” His use of “I am,” which would make the statement ungrammatical under normal usage, shows that He never came into being. Moreover, His use of “I am” immediately reminds us that this is what God called Himself when speaking to Moses at the burning bush (Exo 3:14). It is highly expressive of His eternity and His deity. – McAllister, David T&T

Exodus 3:13-14 “And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.”

The always existing Son of God will forever be seated in glory, and one day soon all believers in Christ will worship Him in heaven. What a glorious day that will be!

IS JESUS CHRIST REALLY GOD?

IS JESUS CHRIST REALLY GOD

[Part 1] There’s some confusion, well actually a lot regarding the subject of Jesus Christ’s deity and rightly so, without the mention of names there’s cults and false doctrine being taught and it’s our responsibility as Christian’s to study the scriptures (2 Timothy 2:15) to see if these things be true. Let’s not forget our noble brethren of Berea.

Acts 17:11 “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”

The question remains did Jesus plainly say “I am God”? Bare along as this is not easily explainable. I’ll reference scriptures which you can study for yourselves. As with anything that pertains to God’s word I would highly advise to look in the Bible for yourself and come to a conclusion on your own. We all will stand before God and will have to give an account, no one else will be able to speak for you before God.

The four Gospels

The gospel according to John targets the deity of Jesus Christ while the other 3 gospels focus upon the genealogy of Jesus, and fulfillment of OT prophecies written to a Jewish audience (Matthew), testimonies and miracles, written for a Gentile audience (Mark) and fact finding and Jesus as the great physician or healer written by the beloved physician (Luke). We all are familiar with the opening verse in the gospel according to John.

John 1:1–3 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made”

Jesus Christ is the Word of God (one of His many names) reading the verse above we see that “the Word” (Jesus Christ) has always existed. God (the Father) is not a created God meaning He was once created and had a starting period, no! God is the alpha and the omega the beginning and the end, therefore, God’s Word (Jesus) has always existed with the Father.

Another question is was Jesus begotten? Yes, He’s the only begotten Son of God. The word begotten is not speaking of the Lord Jesus being created as some may try to argue, nothing of the sort, when speaking of the eternal Son of God the word begotten speaks of His position. He’s above all and comes before all having the preeminence (John 1:18John 3:31Colossians 1:17-18, Hebrews 1:1-10, Psalms 45:6-7).

The words of the Lord in John chapter 8:58 could not be clearer: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.” Note that it proves conclusively that our Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son. Repeatedly in this chapter He has been speaking of God as “My Father.” Now this climactic statement of the chapter shows that this is eternally so. If there was a time when He came into being, He would have said, “Before Abraham was, I was.” The verbs translated “was” and “am” are not the same, and they show that the meaning of the statement is “Before Abraham came to be, I exist.” His use of “I am,” which would make the statement ungrammatical under normal usage, shows that He never came into being. Moreover, His use of “I am” immediately reminds us that this is what God called Himself when speaking to Moses at the burning bush (Exo 3:14). It is highly expressive of His eternity and His deity. – McAllister, David T&T

Begotten

μονογενής monogenḗs, mon-og-en-ace’; from G3441 and G1096; only-born, i.e. sole: — only (begotten, child).

John 1:14 “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”

Genesis 1:3 “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”

Notice God said “Let there be light” Jesus Christ is also known as the light of the world. He came unto his own, and his own received him not (John 1:11). 

John 3:19 “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”

Jesus Christ has many names and titles in which He goes by some of the more recognizable ones are The Son of God, Son of man, The only begotten Son of the Father, Emmanuel “God with us”, Lord etc… But there are scriptures in the Old Testament which also names our Lord Jesus. Here’s an Old Testament scripture speaking about Jesus and His names.

Isaiah 9:6 “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

Notice the above verse is talking about Jesus “a child is born…a son is given” as we continue it states of Him being “The everlasting Father”. This speaks of the deity of Jesus, He’s not just a prophet as some would claim, Jesus shares the same nature as the Father. The Godhead consists of God the Father, the Lord Jesus Christ the Son of God and the Holy Ghost. This explains verses like (John 5:19, John 7:16–17 ). And with this piece of scripture below showing all three in one place at the same time.

Matthew 3:16-17 “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: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”

IS JESUS CHRIST REALLY GOD 2

After reading the above portion there’s no denying God has three distinct persons (Father, Son, Holy Ghost) and all three consist of the Godhead and together they are one God.

The writer of the book of Hebrews makes a reference from one of the Psalms speaking of the Lord Jesus and His deity. While reading bear in mind that this is God the Father speaking to the Son of God. The verses say and I quote “But unto the Son [he saith], Thy, throne, of God, is for ever and ever” (Hebrews 1:8 – 1:9, Psalms 45:6).

Thanks for reading I pray that this helped you in understanding more about who God is. In [part 2] I’ll further show whom Jesus is helping you to examine for yourselves and draw your own conclusions as to the question, is Jesus Christ really God?

The Love of God Never Ends

Photo taken by Tanya

When my eyes feast on beauty like this, I fall in love with God even more. I didn’t think I could love Him any more, yet I go deeper. And that’s because His love never ends. You know what that means? Never-ending love is just that: never-ending. One will never find the end to His love. Never find a limit. Never find a wall. It goes on forever, and it’s a love that never tires. It’s always fresh, always new, always true. It takes you by surprise, it fills you in new ways, it compels you to love Him with everything in you. His love is stronger than death. It’s multifaceted. It always goes deeper. It overcomes and consumes and turns your insides into fire.

He IS love. Real love.

Not the fake love that society is saturated with, but real love. Love that never gives up, never runs dry, never abandons. Love that is fierce, protecting, and shielding. Love that is caring, tender, and compassionate. Love that never requires anything from the other in order to love. Love that never hurts, never acts selfishly, and never lies. Love that stands the test of time, and passes into eternity. Love that seeks, pursues, allures. Love that romances, enchants, and dazzles. Love that respects, is loyal, and attached. Love that does whatever it takes to look after the betterment of the other, no matter the cost. Love that is so powerful, death seems like nothing. Love that makes the heart beat faster, the pulse race, and breathing quicken. Love that overcomes all obstacles. Love that will never die. Love that lasts forever.

The love of God, and His Bride returning that love back. This is true love. Jesus is love. And when a soul loves Him back…no words can fully describe it. It’s beyond this world.

His love is absolutely inexhaustible and completely perfect in every single way. If you don’t have it, don’t you want a love like that? The true endless love of God.

Isaiah 62:4
“Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.”
