Believing in God is acceptable no outrageous pressure. God has become a broad subject and it is alright to believe in God. You can name God whatever you want because it is acceptable. You can believe God is many gods, two gods, three gods, or just one God. Believing in a no name God defined as an unknown force (may the force be with you?) would be also acceptable.
Society has become a majority of tolerance when it comes to God. You can say, “God” and the person could be thinking anything of who their God is to them without saying it out loud. God is an umbrella term and it is not safe to assume a person is talking about the God in your mind. God could be the devil, an animal, mountains, rivers, a man or woman, and anything else you can think of that could be in their mind.
The devil believed he would have no problem with mankind after his experience with Eve and Adam when it came to the term ‘God’. In his mind God could be twisted easily in the minds of mankind. There was no problem to him in tricking mankind believing in God to be something else. Today, God is many things to all kinds of people.
The Old Testament is pretty much about God the Father creating the sun, the moon, the planets, the earth, and mankind with the promises of Him sending salvation and restoration. The New Testament is about God the Father and His son Jesus Christ fulfilling the plan of salvation and the restoration process for mankind’s soul.
Have you ever wondered ‘why‘ the New Testament was written about God and Jesus? Remember the devil had no problem with man following his influence about God the Father in the Old Testament, but Jesus was a different man. The devil came to Jesus when his flesh was at it’s weakest point from fasting in the wilderness forty days and forty nights.
Jesus was a man born under all the conditions of the promise seed in the Old Testament to the saving of mankind. This is why the Satan started off with “If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.” He started off with Eve about eating the fruit of every tree in the garden as he wanted Jesus to eat the stones made into bread deviating from God’s will. It was only one tree for Eve and Adam that was off limits or death. Jesus said, “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” (Matt. 4:3, 4)
Okay, Jesus is a little bit different than Eve and Adam. Satan took Jesus up to a high pinnacle above the temple saying to him again, “If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down:“. He always started off with planting doubt and adding a twist to God’s spiritual word. The devil said, “for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.” It’s okay to believe in God and His word as long as the devil can keep you from the true meaning and adding his own interpretation. Jesus said back to the devil, “It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.“. (Matt. 4:6,7)
The devil took God’s word out of context and used it to fit his personal desires (sound familiar today?), but Jesus kept God’s word aligned with God’s will. Eating did not work and twisting God’s word did not work on Jesus. There really is something different about this man. He is not like Eve and Adam, the devil could have thought.
Alright, the devil will offer Jesus a final offer like he did Eve and Adam. Satan took Jesus to a high mountain so he could see all the kingdoms of the world with their glory shining down below. Satan said, “All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.” Jesus was tempted in all points, but his desire was above all things just to follow the will of God. He said to the devil, “Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.” (Matt. 4:8-10)
It was okay to follow God’s will, believe in God’s word as long as mankind accepts the twisted, out of context, and lies of disobedience for false riches, but Jesus was a different man than Adam, Eve, and most of us today. Each time Jesus replied to the devil his words pinned Satan down on that topic – end of discussion. These last words Jesus spoke to the devil commanded him to leave and pointing the finger at him saying worship and serve your God and Him only like he did before he fell from grace.
The devil went away knowing this Jesus was different than Eve and Adam. Eating food against God’s will, you won’t die going against God’s will, and becoming as powerful against God’s will. The people of the Old Testament was not much of a problem believing in God to the devil. The threat was not to high to concern him other than this promised seed God spoke of, which the devil now wondered about Jesus being that high level of threat.
GOD and JESUS
God the Father of all creation focused Himself inside the man Jesus without diminishing any of His presences anywhere else. For inside the body of Jesus all the fulness of God dwelt bodily (Col. 2:9). God is the one and true all present Spirit and the devil has no problem, even today, people believing in God because he could twist their beliefs in all kinds of spiritual directions, but Jesus was, is, and always will be the focal point of God’s salvation for mankind. This is too focused for the devil for mankind to see.
Do you see the power and threat against sin, death, hell, and the grave? Scattered faith in God is alright for you to have, but the focused faith in God and Jesus is unacceptable by the devil. Is it starting to form as to why the New Testament is about God and Jesus? The merging of God the Father’s all present Spirit concentrated in the body of Jesus provides the way, the truth, and the life that the devil cannot stop you from reaching God the Father in heaven (Jn. 14:6).
This is why Jesus said, “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” (Jn. 17:3). Scattered belief in God, scriptures picked out of context, and accepting lies for false results is acceptable by the devil for he has changed his appearance as an angel of light keeping things as divided as much as possible. The devil is trying to make darkness light, good evil, and evil good (Is. 5:20). He knows if anyone becomes focused on the Spirit of God and the Man (Jesus Christ) of God seeing them as one he will lose another soul to eternal life with God.
There is no greater power focused than the All Mighty One True God and the body of a man, Jesus Christ forming the undefeatable redemption of mankind. You have the Spirit, the water, and the blood focused as one to the saving of your soul. Satan discovered every day Jesus walked on this earth that this man was no ordinary man. Everything was alright before Jesus came into the picture. The different beliefs, the positions of power, and the twisted scriptures was acceptable to all who believed they were true. God in Jesus changed all of that, even today.
No wonder why it is life eternal to know the one true God and Jesus the vessel He dwelt in. It is not scattered faith in different gods. It is not God’s word out of context, but line upon line perfectly made flesh in Jesus. It is not lies of false riches of the earth, but riches of heaven that never fades away in the light of the Lamb of God.
Out of all the choices in the Bible of believing in God, the one true God is considered to be doing well. You are actually in agreement with the devil if you believe in one God. The only difference is Satan and the demons also believe in one God and tremble or shudder with fear (Ja. 2:19) whether you do or not. It is alright to believe in God, but don’t bring Jesus into the picture as one with God.
You can see people today praying in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, but not in the name of Jesus because it is focused and concentrated in the Spirit, water, and blood of Jesus. It is alright to scatter your faith in the titles ‘Father’, ‘Son’, and ‘Holy Ghost’ because it does not bring the Spirit, the water, and the blood of Jesus into your heart. The devil is alright with you dividing God as a Father, and Jesus as God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit because it divides and confuses mankind of three different gods.
God the Spirit focused and provided Himself inside the man Jesus creating a vessel of pure blood and pure water for the sole purpose of saving His children from the devil and sin (Heb. 2:14). The power of salvation and understanding God and Jesus is life eternal. It is not alright to the devil for you to see God and Jesus as One. It also kills the devil when you become one with God and Jesus through the born of the water and of the Spirit – born again experience.
When you see God Almighty and Jesus Christ the man as One then you will see why the focused plan of salvation was preached by Peter for us to repent, be baptized in Jesus name applying the blood and water washing away all sins, and receiving the power of the Holy Ghost in Acts 2:38.
You will also see the devil has scattered, taken out of context, and twisted the results from this focused scripture of salvation into many different parts. The devil does not mind you ‘just believing’ in Jesus with your mind proclaiming it is enough to be saved. He does not mind you believing ‘once saved always saved’ no matter the sins you commit there after. The slightest deviation of truth from God and Jesus the devil will be alright with it, but if you should align perfectly seeking the full oneness of God then the trembling and shuttering in fear starts while salvation unfolds more perfectly.
NOW YOU SEE
The New Testament shows God and Jesus becoming one for the sole purpose of saving mankind. It is not two separate Gods in God the Father and Jesus Christ the son. It is the One True God in Jesus Christ creating the doorway to salvation of His Spirit, water, and blood. Now, you should see when Jesus spoke and acted upon in the New Testament it happened as he said and as he did. Only God could be with him for these things to be.
Get God the Father and Jesus Christ in your life through being born again of the water and the spirit by repenting of your sins, being baptized in Jesus name applying the blood and water washing away all your sins, and then receive the power of the Holy Ghost like they did in Acts chapter two as God gives you the words your mind and tongue have never known, symbolizing His Spirit has entered into your body with your spirit making you one with God.
FEEL AFTER GOD YOURSELF
Why is the book of Acts treated as a dead history book of the church in God’s word? If there are three separate Gods, why is there no record of anyone being baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost? If there is no record in the Bible that sprinkling water is full baptism in Jesus name why does mankind do it? There are tons of questions to be asked because the answers will lead you into the ways of God more perfectly. When did the scripture of Acts 2:38 stop being God’s plan of salvation? When did God stop pouring out the power His Spirit? Did Jesus die and resurrect for only a few or was it for all who are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call?
If it is of a truth then there should be no fear of asking questions because it will stand against the scattered, the out of context, and the false lies of riches for the soul. The strongest barrier that the devil has created is the pride of traditions, the desires of the flesh, and lies of false positions of glory to the eyes.
Acts 2:38 “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.” :39 “For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.“
2 Cor. 5:19 “To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.“
1 Cor. 8:6 “But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.“
