WHAT IS GOD?
Elihu in Job 37:5 says it perfectly: “God thunders with His voice wondrously,
Doing great things which we cannot comprehend.”
Soloman writes in Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart
And do not lean on your own understanding.”
Later in the “Post-Gospel” books, the disciples are stressing the importance of being humble. They spoke to God through Jesus. I would take their words with the utmost respect.
I don’t think there is a superlative in the dictionary that could begin to describe God. It’s odd because deep inside, I feel that our spirits know who/what God is. Why? Because I believe we’ve met before. This was probably long before I was born on this planet. Which makes me wonder if there’s another reason why the older you get, the wiser you get? Was I given ethereal advice before I was born? Was this advice tucked away in my “Junk DNA”?
I don’t know.
Webster describes God as:
1. (in Christianity and other monotheistic religions) the creator and ruler of the universe and source of all moral authority; the supreme being.
2. (in certain other religions) a superhuman being or spirit worshiped as having power over nature or human fortunes; a deity.
In New Age thought, God is often referred to as Source, Source Energy, Love, it gets vague and goes downhill from there. Do not listen to any one who makes either or both of these two statements.
1. We are all God. (No. We were created in his likeness. If we were created we can’t be the creator) My mother may have given birth to me but that doesn’t make me my mother or my father. (OTOH, I do have her mitochondrial DNA)
2. “You don’t die”. (Surely you shall not die ~ Satan) Yes you will die. You will leave this realm. this Paradise or this Battlefield. Your spirit will depart your decomposing body and be “recalled” where you and our maker will go over your life experience. Should you fear that day? (Judgment day) I say no. I openly preach that you fear today.
Let me keep this short. Humans are too smart to believe that our world, bodies and eco system are a coincidence. If you knew 1/10th of the anatomy and Physiology a Joe stethoscope doctor knows, you would realize how amazing this body was created. I’ll go so far as to say it’s smarter than Porsche Technology. (And less expensive). The design of the human body is that of a deity.
Let’s just say that your body is truly built like a fine temple. It has a central heating/cooling system called your hypothalamus. It comes with its own pest control system called “White blood cells”. It has it’s own Brita filters for your blood, lungs and eyes. The point I’m making is: “The designer had to be a deity”. As much as I like the Ancient Alien Theory, (I believe it serves one purpose.) It debunks Darwinian rubbish. If man evolved from hominids, why did apes lose their body hair only to require clothing to stay warm to survive? The theory debunks its self. Unless the evolution of man was to make an Armani suit fit better.
What is God?
God is The creative entity that is so powerful Moses himself was not allowed to see God. God Himself said to Moses that to view him would kill Moses. So God did a biblical “Fly by” so Moses could feel God’s “essence” in Exodus chapter 34. In the Charlton Heston Movie “The 10 Commandments” Heston comes down from Mt. Sinai looking as if he had aged 100 years. In Exodus 34:29 It describes Moses’ face as “shining”. Who knows? Exposure to Radiation? I’ll call it a righteous glow.
God would later manifest himself in the Human form of Jesus. “The Christ”. Jesus would work miracles effortlessly. I think Jesus was playing with us at times as on occasion he would touch someone or wave his hand and they would be instantly healed. Other times Jesus would spit in the dirt, mix it into mud, rub it in the blind man’s eyes and sent him to the pool to wash it out. As the blind man did as ordered, his site was restored. I wonder if Jesus, with a sense of humor looked at his disciples, smiled and said: “Hey guys; watch this”?
