WHAT WE BELIEVE DOES MATTER

Hi! this past week I went on a spiritual journey as part of a question I posted to others.    What we believe does matter.   What do you believe?   Not simply what your church or 'others' have taught you but what do you PERSONALLY BELIEVE and does your belief impact your life and relationship with God?

Is it fully anchored in the revealed and inspired WORD OF GOD?

I asked God to lead and guide me as I journeyed to actually put down what I personally believed. 

1.     I BELIEVE that God is SO BIG He rationally cannot be defined by any human understanding or mind.

          I believe He is ...........intrinsic to the WHOLE COSMOS.   HE is.

          My journey led me to answer in stages the question and it became a collection of THREES.

1.  I BELIEVE IN ONE GOD.......AMIGHTY PART OF ALL THINGS. ONE GOD OF THE   HEAVENLY REALM.      FATHER.......A Divine Realm of authority, angels etc etc.

           GOD  of the EARTHLY REALM     revealed to frail humanity in the person of GOD as SON.    JESUS CHRIST LORD.   

 Came to earth as SAVIOUR so all humanity could be made acceptable in holiness to face the DIVINE for eternity.

             GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT.     God of the Spirit world. (ie the ghost world the world of 'unseen' entities)   He is necessary to show  the Spirit world HE IS GOD OF ALL. 

               He stayed on the earth to lead God's Saved children HOME.   He ever LIVES to point the way to the SAVIOUR of human souls.  Christ. 

A smplified journey of discovery. Maybe you have your special THREES.

THE THREES

 

  The term ‘believers’ was first used to describe those who received Christ and chose to follow Him. In the Way. …….accepted…surrendered …followed…….the SAVIOUR.

Not called Christians until much later – never meant to be a religion but a Message of deliverance and a Way of Life….to Eternity. The term believers was applied to Converts first in Acts 5:14 and 1. Tim 4:12 says ‘We labour and suffer because we trust in our LIVING GOD who is the SAVIOUR OF ALL.

For your interest ONLY. THE THREE’S OF A SIMPLIFIED STATEMENT OF BELIEF.

The three big question about life.

1. Who am I?

2. Why am I here?

3. Where am I going?

1. I BELIEVE IN ONE HOLY AND RIGHTEOUS GOD.

1. Father……who is in Heaven

2. Son……revealed on the Earth so mankind would KNOW SAVIOUR

3. SPIRIT………Lord of all life……God of the SPIRIT/Ghost world unseen. God revealed in entire UNIVERSE. I AM.

THREE STAGES OF BELIEF.

1. CROSS…..It is FINISHED  Salvation.

2. Risen Saviour……….We too will RISE.

3. Belief in SPIRIT…….God of all LIFE……BOTH IN THE WORLD and in the genetic structure of ALL LIVING THINGS.

Three actions.

1. Accept the Saviour

2. Surrender to Him all we are and all we will be. Be 'born again' into His Image.

3. Follow. Him as Shepherd……we His Sheep.

Another three actions.

1. Listen to His Voice

2. Respond in prayer

3. ACT as He leads……

only Human needs.

1. Salvation

2. Ongoing preparation for a holy journey

3. Eternal destination

BLOOD WATER FIRE ………

.1. Accept.

2. Surrender.

3. Follow

SACRIFICE, WATER OF LIFE, FIRE……..Passion to live for Him alone.

CHRIST’s LIFE.

1. Virgin Birth

2. Sacrificial death as Holy Lamb of God Saviour

3. HOLY KING (for eternal Ages)

OUR LIVES.

1. Come as a sinful child.

2. TRANSFORMATION……….With childlike faith being transformed into an acceptable vessel of God’s Holiness

3. BRIDE…….ultimately prepared to meet the Bridegroom. Christ......united for eternity.
