Here is my idea of God, in a very shortened compressed version.
G-D is the ONE and ONLY Supreme Spiritual Being, Who is the Heavenly King of ALL Creation, Father of ALL Mankind, and the ONLY Glorious ONE Who is entitled to receive ALL Glory.
This wonderful Person presents Himself to All mankind in 3 possible ways, either individually or all at one time, that we should not ignore and must not misunderstand.
1. God Almighty, the Designer, Creator and Ruler of All Creation, creator of All Mankind, and the One who sits upon the Throne above heaven and earth to rule and reign as HE sees fit!
2. Yeshua, Jesus, the One and Only begotten or conceived and born Son of God, who is also God and who holds all Creation together by the strength of His Power. Then HE taught all mankind the truths of God and set himself to die for the sins of all the peoples of the world. It is said that G-D killed G-D, and it appears to be true.! (This is an email I sent a brother when he raised the subject. “In the beginning, God planned all things from the beginning to the end and everything in between. He determined that He needed a Perfect Blood Sacrifice to avail for all the sinfulness and sins of humankind. So, He, in His infinite power, wisdom and Grace, looked for a perfect sacrifice that would completely atone for the sins of God’s loved people of the world.
The only sacrifice God could find that was perfect enough was His only Son, Yeshua (Jesus).
So, Yeshua put Himself in the Father’s Will and hands so that all who will repent and believe may be cleansed of their sins by the Precious Blood of Yeshua and be raised to Eternal Life through His perfect resurrection.
Praise be to God! Hallelujah to glorious Yeshua! Thanks be to God’s Holy Spirit!
All the peoples of the earth are reputed as nothing.
God does His will in the army of heaven and among the nations of earth.
And no one can stop Him,
Or question what He does!
3. The Holy Ghost, or Holy Spirit, Who convicts us all of our sins and iniquities, who leads us to repentance, and who imparts to us God’s wisdom, His leading and guiding. This Holy Spirit of God Who comes from the Father and is sent by Yeshua (John 15:26) is also at times referred to as the Holy Spirit of Jesus.
The Bible says God is a spirit, he resides in the invisible spirit realm (heaven), heaven appears to be possibly a parallel universe which occupies a higher plane of existence than the material world we exist in. He has taken a name which he wants us to know. Hahuah (Yahweh) is the most widely recognized pronunciation of his name in English, but it is pronounced differently in many languages. His name means, “He causes to Become”, or “I will be because I will be”. (It does NOT mean “I am that I am”.)
Isaiah 42:8 NW — “I am Hahuah (Yahweh). That is my name; I give my glory to no one else, nor my praise to graven images”.
The scriptures assure us that our Creator is “the happy God”. Isaiah 62:2 “And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name.
Isa 62:3 Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.
Isa 62:4 Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.
Isa 62:5 For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.
Isa 62:6 I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence,
Isa 62:7 And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.”
So, for eons of time, He happily existed alone, enjoying being alive, so much so, that at some point he decided to share His life with other living beings whom he would create in his own image.
The Bible tells us that he began by bringing to life his firstborn, spirit, son. He is called his only begotten son, because after his creation Hahuah had his firstborn son work along with him to create millions of other spirit sons (angels) to inhabit the invisible spirit realm with him. Along with his father this son who would be born a man child created all other things. (Proverbs 8:22-30)
Colossians 1:15-17 NW — He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; because by means of him all other things were created in the heavens and on the earth, the things visible and the things invisible, whether they are thrones or lordships or governments or authorities. All other things have been created through him and for him. Also, he is before all other things, and by means of him all other things were made to exist.
God’s angelic sons share many of Hahuah’s own qualities, in fact, the Bible refers to them as godlike ones. (Psalms 8:5) Hahuah dignified them as sentient individuals by granting them free-will. No doubt, Hahuah delighted to see his spirit sons enjoying life along with him.
At some point between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2 it would appear that after creating the angels, spirits etc., God began creating the physical realm. (Or perhaps this first part of Creation actually took place as the first act of verse 1). He created billions of stars and galaxies and breathtaking celestial wonders. Along with those celestial bodies he created the earth. We do not know when the earth was created, the Bible says only that; “In the beginning” God created the heavens and the earth. It does not say when “the beginning” was, it may have been millions of years ago. Or maybe not!
The earth was part of the material universe He created, and he chose to populate the earth with a new creation. Rather than spirit sons who inhabit the spirit realm, he created children of flesh and blood to inhabit the physical realm.
Genesis chapters 1 and 2 describe how God prepared the earth for habitation one step at a time, and filled it with living things, plants, animals, birds, sea life, and a myriad of living creatures. The creation of man in his image was the crown of his earthly creation. Man was an intelligent being endowed with many of God’s own attributes. And just as he had done with his spirit sons, he also gave his human children free-will.
Hahuah wanted his human children to enjoy pleasurable lives. He carefully arranged a garden paradise and filled it with things to delight their senses. He surrounded them with beautiful things to see, and hear, to touch, and taste, and to smell.
When he settled Adam and Eve in their Garden home, God told them to “multiply and become many” to fill the earth with their children, and to subdue the earth which meant that they were to gradually extend the boundaries of their garden paradise until the whole earth was a global paradise filled with their happy healthy descendants.
The ability to produce children was a unique gift to mankind which God had not given to his angelic sons. His human children would experience the joy of giving birth to their own children. Little ones who would reflect some of their own features and qualities. They would experience the pleasure of being loved unconditionally by their own sons and daughters, and to delight in watching them develop into unique individuals who would share their values.
That is the hope of every parent, and it was God’s hope for the children he brought into existence as well. It is our purpose in life. Our reason for living.
Like all parents God wanted what every parent wants, to love, and be loved by their children and to experience the pleasure of seeing them develop into caring, compassionate individuals who share their values and make good choices in life. They want children who will be kind, generous, considerate, individuals who reflect the values their parents have taught them.
Hahuah created man as an expression of his love for life and his strong desire to share life with other intelligent beings. God wanted what every parent wants, to enjoy a close, meaningful, relationship with his children, so he instilled in us a need for a personal relationship with him.
Matthew 5:3 KJV — “Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
Some suppress that spiritual need in themselves, but it is still there below the surface, and it manifests itself in our search for purpose in life.
We were created with endless curiosity, and thirst, for knowledge. There will never be an end to what mankind can find out about God and his creation.
Ecclesiastes 3:10-13 KJV — “I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.
Ecc 3:11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.
Ecc 3:12 I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.
Ecc 3:13 And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.”
