Response to Re: Old and New Testament - 11

 
Consolidated and shared by the brethren for those called at this point in time:


Old and New Testament - 18


7. God had not yet revealed His name in the Old Testament books, contrary to the
dictate of the intellect.

Isa. 56:2 “Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall
know in that day that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I.”

The NAME of God is revealed to be JESUS CHRIST in:

Matt. 28:19 “ Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:”

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.”

8. There is only One True God manifesting Himself in different forms to fulfill His
plan. Nothing is impossible with God. The plan of God is to have eternal companions
with people who are willing to humble themselves like Him "manifesting Himself in
the flesh." This is the antidote to pride that caused the fall of Lucifer and Eve.

One sign of humility is the willingness to accept that God is speaking “spiritual things”
or in parables (Ezek. 20:49 , Psa. 78:2). Humility means total surrender to the TRUTH
although this is contrary to the dictate of the mind, senses, and feeling.

Many verses indicate that the Father and the Son “are” relating with each other and to
comprehend how God is one seems to be impossible. At creation, God speaks in the
plural form.

Gen. 1:26 “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let
them have dominion…”

At the baptism of Jesus, the senses dictate that God cannot be one person.

Matt. 3:16 “And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water:
and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a
dove, and lighting upon him: 17And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son,
in whom I am well pleased.”

In eternity, the intellect dictates that God cannot be one because it is written the
“Son is sitting/standing at the right hand of God.”

Mark 16:19 “So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into
heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.”

Acts 17:55 “But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven,
and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, 56And said, Behold,
I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.”

Thus, the Natural Man with the use of the senses and intellect cannot comprehend how God
is one while this is the truth .

1 Cor. 2:14 “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God :
for they are foolishness unto him : neither can he know them , because they are spiritually
[not intellectually, not of the senses, nor emotionally] discerned .”
