I and My Father are One. Weekend of May 10th & 11th, 2003
It never ceases to amaze me how many people answer with: "Oh, I don't believe that Jesus would allow anyone to go to hell, I believe in Jesus as the God of love...", when ever I quote Jesus in John 3 verses 1-3, 14-18:
There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto Him, "Rabbi, we know that Thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him." Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him (Jesus) should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
Is it so hard to understand that Jesus did not come into the world to replace God the Father, but to do that which He as God the Father had ordained through prophecy that He as God the Son must do to give us a chance at everlasting salvation? Is it so hard to understand that it is God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost, not God the Father or God the Son or God the Holy Ghost?
This is the same God who, in the times before He came to earth in the form of a Man called Yeshua, destroyed every living air breathing thing with the exception of those He chose to put on His ark. The ark that was built by His servant Noah. The same God who, in the times before He came to earth in the form of a Man called Yeshua, destroyed every man woman and child in the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and other villages in the plains around them for the sin of homosexuality.
Yes, Jesus is the God of love as is God the Father and God the Holy Ghost, but in Their love do not seek to find weakness, for it is not there. Don't try to find a separation between the three nor should you try to play one against the other, for God the Father and God the Son are one and the same.
Read here as Jesus, in His prayer to the Father repeatedly says that the two are one.
John Chapter Seventeen
1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said,
Father, the hour is come; glorify Thy Son, that Thy Son also may glorify Thee:
2 As Thou hast given Him power over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as Thou hast given Him. 3 And this is life eternal, that they might know Thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom Thou hast sent.
4 I have glorified Thee on the earth,
I have finished the work which Thou gavest me to do. 5 And now, O Father, glorify Thou Me with Thine own self, with the glory which I had with Thee before the world was.
6 I have manifested Thy name unto the men which Thou gavest Me out of the world: Thine they were, and Thou gavest them Me; and they have kept Thy word.
7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever Thou hast given Me are of Thee. 8 For I have given unto them the words which Thou gavest Me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from Thee, and they have believed that Thou didst send Me.
9 I pray for them,
I pray not for the world, but for them which Thou hast given Me;
for they are Thine. 10 And all Mine are Thine, and Thine are Mine; and I am glorified in them.
11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to Thee. Holy Father, keep through Thine own name those whom Thou hast given Me, that they may be one, as We are. 12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Thy name: those that Thou gavest Me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
13 And now come I to Thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have My joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given them Thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I pray not that Thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that Thou shouldest keep them from the evil. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them through Thy truth, Thy word is truth.
18 As thou hast sent Me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on Me through their word; 21 That they all may be one; as Thou, Father, art in Me, and I in Thee, that they also may be one in Us: that the world may believe that Thou hast sent Me.
22 And the glory which thou gavest Me I have given them; that they may be one, even as We are one: 23 I in them, and Thou in Me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that Thou hast sent Me, and hast loved them, as Thou hast loved Me.
24 Father, I will that they also, whom Thou hast given Me, be with Me where I am; that they may behold My glory, which Thou hast given Me: for Thou lovedst Me before the foundation of the world.
25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known Thee: but I have known Thee, and these have known that Thou hast sent Me. 26 And I have declared unto them Thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith Thou hast loved Me may be in them, and I in them.
Yes, Jesus is the God of Love, He is also the God of vengeance, revenge, and able to destroy absolutely and permanently those who cross Him. He is the same God who not only came to earth so that we may be saved, but the One who sent Himself to earth so that we might be saved.
My dear readers, you must read your Bible daily, you must take time to study it daily, you must check everything you hear against the Word of God and His word, for we live in a time when there is so much garbage out there, a time when seminaries have become so politically correct, a time when so many of satan's false religions have been accepted as Christian religions, that to not study on your own will leave you with the wrong impression and serving the god called death, not the God called Life.
Let me close with words dictated to John the Apostle by God the Holy Ghost and recorded in John chapter one:
In the beginning was the Word (Jesus), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same (Jesus) was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him (Jesus); and without Him was not any thing made that was made.
In Him was life; and the life was the Light of men. And the Light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through Him might believe. He (John) was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. He came unto His own(the Jews), and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
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. John bare witness of Him, and cried, saying, "This was He of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for He was before me." And of His fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Ghost, all One God all the Same God all of equal status as God. And I challenge you to find anything in His book, the Holy Bible to contradict that.
The Lord God Creator of all things, Christ Jesus be with you, may He give you a hunger for His words, for it is only through reading and studying His word that you can decipher the differences between honesty and falsehoods. ...man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God
Who is He that condemns?
It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. (Romans 8:34)
Now, before you go falling on your knees and praying to pope made saints of other false gods, remember this:
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; (1 Timothy 2:5)
Lord God Creator of all things, we, the people of the USA, give Thee thanks for giving us the second chance we do not deserve. We thank Thee Lord for our brave troops who are at this very instant freeing and liberating people through out the kingdom of satan. Amen. And Lord we beseech Thee that Thou would send to our men a Paul, to preach Your word to them before they go to free those held captive by the forces of evil left by Saul. Touch the Presidents heart Lord, lead him in a direction to send evangelist to our troops, give him the strength Lord to serve You, to use his office, that You have entrusted him with, as Commander in Chief to authorize and send solid evangelical Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian evangelist preachers to bring the Word of God to our troops, giving them both reason to fight and the Lord's plan of salvation.
Lord Jesus, it is in Thy Sacred and Holy Name I pray, Amen.
All Scripture is quoted, in both sermons and daily thoughts, except when done by a guest, is from the ACP/authorized 1611 King James Version. The words in red are those quotes of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those qoutes spoken directly by God the Father and the words in this sickly greenish color are of satan. But all of the Bible is spoken by God and should be viewed as God's handbook for us to run our lives by 2 Timothy 3:16.
God blessed America when she feared Him, now it appears, she may face His wrath.
