Today is August 8th, 2020 and there is but one God. Please remember that if it is in capital letters than it is from the Bible. "THUS SAYS THE LORD, THE KING OF ISRAEL, AND HIS REDEEMER, THE LORD OF HOSTS: I AM THE FIRST AND I AM THE LAST; BESIDES ME THERE IS NO GOD." I don't understand then if there is but one God, how come we all fight over what Scripture means? This world is in such turmoil, why oh why are we not coming together? But let's continue on in Isaiah. "AND WHO CAN PROCLAIM AS I DO? THEN LET HIM DECLARE IT AND SET IT IN ORDER FOR ME, SINCE I APPOINTED THE ANCIENT PEOPLE." God is calling out those who think that they know more than God. If there is another God then bring him forth and God will show him who the real God is. "AND THE THINGS THAT ARE COMING AND SHALL COME, LET THEM SHOW THESE TO THEM." Again if there is any other god besides my God then let them come forth and show us the things that will come. Not one has been able to bring forth God's plan and get it right. "DO NOT FEAR NOR BE AFRAID; HAVE I NOT TOLD YOU FROM THAT TIME, AND DECLARED IT? YOU ARE MY WITNESSES. IS THERE A GOD BESIDES ME? INDEED THERE IS NO OTHER ROCK; I KNOW NOT ONE." Isaiah 44:6-8. I don't know if it can get much clearer than that. But if you think the Old Testament is out dated the let's take a look at the New Testament. Ephesians 4:4-6. "THERE IS ONE BODY AND ONE SPIRIT JUST AS YOU WERE CALLED IN ONE HOPE OF YOUR CALLING; ONE LORD, ONE FAITH, ONE BAPTISM; ONE GOD AND FATHER OF ALL, WHO IS ABOVE ALL, AND THROUGH ALL, AND IN YOU ALL." God knew that we would allow the world to creep into the church. Why are we still allowing it? Do we think that just because we sit in that pew on Sunday morning, that is our ticket to heaven? The other one is; it is all how you interpret it. That scripture in Ephesians is pretty clear that we should all be on the same page. Where is the church for our world today? Why are we not moving? Why are we not out there praying over the cities and the towns? Do we not think that God could stop them right there in their tracks? Where is the church for the needy and the hungry? Where is the church for the single moms and dads? Where is the church for the inner cities? We complain about all that is going on but yet still sit on our behinds and hope that God will intervene. He called us, we have to move. And my last Scripture of the day: Galatians 1:6-10; "I MARVEL THAT YOU ARE TURNING AWAY SO SOON FROM HIM WHO CALLED YOU IN THE GRACE OF CHRIST, TO A DIFFERENT GOSPEL, WHICH IS NOT ANOTHER, BUT THERE ARE SOME WHO TROUBLE YOU AND WANT TO PERVERT THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST. Side note here; we all may be reading the same Bible, but we are making the Bible conform to what we want and not what God is calling us to do. We may not practice another religion, but yet we can't get on the same page with our one God. "BUT EVEN IF WE, OR AN ANGEL FROM HEAVEN, PREACH ANY OTHER GOSPEL TO YOU THAN WHAT WE HAVE PREACHED TO YOU, LET HIM BE ACCURSED. AS WE HAVE SAID BEFORE, SO NOW I SAY AGAIN, IF ANYONE PREACHES ANY OTHER GOSPEL TO YOU THAN WHAT YOU HAVE RECEIVED, LET HIM BE ACCURSED." That's enough for me to get into the Word of God for myself. God gives each and every person the Holy Spirit to discern His word. God wants all of us to have the knowledge of Him, so we are prepared for His coming? I don't want to be cursed, do you? "FOR DO I NOW PERSUADE MEN, OR GOD? OR DO I SEEK TO PLEASE MEN? FOR IF I STILL PLEASED MEN, I WOULD NOT BE A BONDSERVANT OF CHRIST." That again is pretty clear. If we continue to please and seek answers from men, we are not of Christ. In Christ alone should we find our answers, our identity, our knowledge. Are you following Christ or following men? Have a blessed day and RISE UP!
