We can’t make God…

WE CAN’T MAKE GOD…

God is so good, so loving, so holy, so perfect, so intelligent, so powerful, so omnipotent, so omnipresent, so omniscient, so righteous, so just, so long-suffering, so gentle, so kind, so strong, so mighty, so everlasting, so merciful, so truthful, so…so…so…

The problem is – our awareness of these things, is small… small… small… or zero.

Initially we can only have such awareness in truth. We only have these realisations in words. We can’t see Him. He is not on the earth as a man anymore. He cannot be accessed through natural means.

He cannot be known in terms we dream up. We can’t make Him fit our laboratory test tube. We can’t reason Him into existence as a figment of our imagination.

We can’t make Him in our image. We can’t get Him to toe our party line. We can’t get Him to obey our invented theology. We can’t see Him through our telescope regardless of how powerful it is.

We can’t make Him conform to our idea of how He should be. We can’t make Him to blame, for all the evils in the world, even though we blame Him (!).

He will not be harnessed by what our thoughts decide He must be.

But we can seek Him through His ordained means of prayer.

We can find Him, if we seek Him with ALL our hearts – notice His stipulated condition for finding = ALL. (Jer. 29/13)

We must begin with the realisation that God…

24 …is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

Glad we can clear up the idea that there is some other idea of who or what God is.

We rule-out the ‘natural seeing’ idea, as we embrace who God really is.

So advancing then, to finding God – the field of ‘research’ is narrowed to the internal realm of the human spirit.

However what spirit have we received? The ‘million dollar’ question.

Jesus Christ is Lord.

We seek Him internally through prayer. And must receive none other than He, in acknowledgement of the scripture….

12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

So our starting point is not your opinion versus mine. Your idea of God being right and mine being wrong. Or vice versa. None of this works – in producing the way to God.

Science increasingly backs-up the facts that God has created all things.

But proving it all came from God – doesn’t work in finding God personally.

We must start with what He says, not with what we invent.

That’s why when reading the scriptures – if we are to realise them – we must believe them.

Believe and act on them. Respond to what they say.

Read them until they make sense and their truth penetrates our innermost being. Hebrews 4/12:

12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Without faith it is impossible to please God.

He asks you and I to believe what is written. He gave His power to men to pen the Holy Scriptures.

The New Testament is the Gospel. 

John 20/31

But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.

  1. Excellent, Ken. I was going to pull out a passage to highlight, but everything you wrote is a highlight. Nonetheless, I particularly like: “Science increasingly backs-up the facts that God has created all things. But proving it all came from God – doesn’t work in finding God personally.
    We must start with what He says, not with what we invent.”

    Amen!
