IS THERE A TRUE, LIVING, and LOVING GOD?
DO YOU KNOW HIM??
DOES HE KNOW YOU???
A [Psalm] of David. THE [empty-headed] fool has said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable deeds; there is none that does good or right. [Romans 3:10.] (Psalms 14:1) AMP
This Scripture has two parts. “THE [empty-headed] fool has said in his heart, There is no God” which is how we viewed God before we were saved, and it also reveals how He viewed us as a fool before we were saved, “They are corrupt, they have done abominable deeds; there is none that does good or right” i.e. while we were still living large in the world we definitely had the profane secular humanistic worldview. I pray the above Scripture no longer applies to you or me!
IS THERE A TRUE, LIVING, and LOVING GOD?
In this book including the APPENDIXES, I believe I have supplied enough Scriptures for you to see and to know there is a God Who is intricately and intimately involved in your life and the life of all of His creation. The Bible shares that God is the only true, living, and loving God, (1), Who is the creator of all things (2), Who is absolutely Sovereign over His creation, (3), Who created the earth to be inhabited (4), and Who is involved in the entire history – past, present, and future of all of His creation which includes the created angels and created man. (5)
(1) But the Lord is the true God; he is the living God, the eternal King. (Jeremiah 10:10a) NIV
(1a) And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. (1 John 4:16) NIV
(2) You alone are the Lord. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you. (Nehemiah 9:6) NIV
(3) “You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord, “and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me. I, even I, am the Lord, and apart from me there is no savior. I have revealed and saved and proclaimed — I, and not some foreign god among you. You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord, “that I am God. Yes, and from ancient days I am he. No one can deliver out of my hand. When I act, who can reverse it?” (Isaiah 43:10-13) NIV
(4) For this is what the Lord says — he who created the heavens, he is God; he who fashioned and made the earth, he founded it; he did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited — he says: “I am the Lord, and there is no other. (Isaiah 45:18) NIV
(5) I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. (Revelation 22:13) NIV
(5a) Even in His [heavenly] servants He puts no trust or confidence, and His angels He charges with folly and error — How much more those who dwell in houses (bodies) of clay, whose foundations are in the dust, who are crushed like the moth. (Job 4:18-19) AMP
I have explained to you that God’s very good creation of this earth with its surrounding universe with all of its magnificence, beauty, splendor, and natural resources which should prove to all men there is a true, living, and loving God is in reality a “lie.” The physical creation becomes a lie when man through his misaligned and misguided faith and worship of this physical creation stretches God’s truth to include the physical creation in his worship and service to God rather than having a purely spiritual faith worshiping and serving God the Creator. (CHAPTER 1 comparing verses Romans 1:25 with 2 Thessalonians 2:11.) This makes the physical world man’s idol and in reality his god.
In CHAPTER 2, I dealt with Jesus’ statement to love Him and to obey His commands and His Father would love us and They would come to indwell those who do this. But if we love the world and the things of the world, the love of the Father is not in us. Our allegiance cannot be to the physical realm! It must be to God and His spiritual Kingdom! It cannot be much clearer than this! Let us never forget, “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” (John 4:23-24) NKJV To me, there is no question as to if there is a true, living, and loving God and our need of our everlasting commitment to Him!
The writing of this book has so strengthened my faith to not only truly realize but to know there is a true, living, and loving God and to discern from the Scriptures the intricacy and intimacy of His involvement in every nanosecond of my life and every nanosecond of every other human being plus His running and maintaining the entire universe all at the same time! All of this was planned out by God the Father before anything was!
For me, I have answered the question as to whether there is a true, living, and loving God. The question remains as to whether you know Him as such and are worshiping and serving Him in spirit and truth or are you continuing worshiping and serving the created lie – your stretching of God’s truth to include your involvement in the physical realm with its god – Satan – the god of this world and the things of this world. Is there to you a spiritual true, living, and loving God and His spiritual supernatural Kingdom?
Several years ago my wife took a University of Hawaii anthropology course on television which is the study of human beings, their origins, their cultures, and human development from around the world. As I watched the program, the professor stated he was surprised because all of the tribes and cultures who have been studied include in their rituals a reverence and place for “supreme beings/higher powers” whomever he, she, or it might be. The professor should not have been surprised at what he considered to be an important discovery of the human mindset and nature because God’s Word testifies that He has placed in man’s spiritual heart a conscience giving man a sense of some kind of an eternal purpose and a semblance of right and wrong between each other and their “supreme being” – the ONLY TRUE LIVING LOVING GOD. (6)
(6) He has made everything beautiful in its time. He also has planted eternity in men’s hearts and minds [a divinely implanted sense of a purpose working through the ages which nothing under the sun but God alone can satisfy], yet so that men cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end. (Ecclesiastes 3:11) AMP
DO YOU KNOW GOD??
God’s testimony about Himself is found in Isaiah chapters 40-48. If you study Hebrews chapters one and two, they will reveal God the Father’s testimony of His Son as God/ Man. What do you know about Jesus Christ? Do you believe Jesus Christ to be fully God the Son and fully the Son of Man? Have you made Jesus Christ your personal Savior, Lord God, and Master? Are you His adopted Born Again Child of God? Does God live in you?” Do you live in God? Is your body the Temple of God the Holy Spirit? As a new creation in Jesus Christ, you partook of the divine nature of God having a ONENESS/ package deal in Him (7) which also shares in God’s “STANDARD” and spiritual profile. (8) Our ONENESS with God restores to you, a sinful man, the same “STANDARD” and spiritual profile that original Adam and Eve had with God before they sinned. We are of the same “STANDARD”/spiritual profile as Jesus Christ Who was and Who continues to be our example of being without sin, righteous, perfect, holy, pure, and blessed. We are truly quite awesome in our new creation! Can you accept this and live your life reflecting our ONENESS with God and our new “STANDARD”/spiritual profile to those around you?

IT MUST BE CLEARLY UNDERSTOOD that MAN WHETHER SAVED or UNSAVED WILL NEVER BE GOD!!!
But all truly Born Again Christians do partake of the divine nature of God and are sealed with God the Holy Spirit that gives us a relationship with God that is truly out of this world and into His Kingdom of God! For God has said, “I will never, never fail you nor forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5c) TLB
The main problem in The Christian Church today is that we do not understand nor know how to renew and transform our worldview from the profane humanistic worldview of the world to the spiritual supernatural worldview on God above and the things of God. We, The Christian Church, are so miserably earth bound and regulated to the point of being spiritually constipated, but this will change as God prepares Christ’s Bride Church for His Second Coming. God will so spiritually equip His adopted children to step forth as Christ’s Bride Church – His Peculiar People for all of the world to see.
What else can you need or want? While God continues to test your faith in Jesus Christ by putting all kinds of obstacles/stumbling blocks in your life – trials, tribulations, testing, events, situations, circumstances, even allowing Satan to tempt you if you get too confident or too far out of line – these are His call upon your life at any time or place in history. He has equipped you for daily victory in your life culminating in eternal life with Him. I pray that you are waiting for Jesus to say to you, “Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.” (Matthew 25:21) NKJV
Brothers and Sisters, be aware that there is no other god of any other religion who has the revelations of the mysteries that the Christian Bible reveals about the only true, living, and loving God and His love and desire to have a relationship with you!
Paul describes for us the transformation that has and is taking place in our lives during our sanctification process. “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
Brought Near by His Blood. “Therefore remember that you, once Gentiles in the flesh — who are called Uncircumcision by what is called the Circumcision made in the flesh by hands — that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.
Christ Our Peace. “For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near.” (Ephesians 2:10-17) NKJV
DOES GOD KNOW YOU???
The answer to this question is also a resounding “YES!” And He has known you intricately and intimately from before time began. “Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.” (Ps 139:16) NKJV The context of this Scripture declares that God saw my/your YET unformed substance as He was writing about you/me in His Book of Life before the foundation of the world. You must realize this was multiple eons BEFORE you/I was conceived as a zygote/embryo which has a form. Prayerfully as you read and meditate on the message of this book and the revelation of the mysteries of the Scriptures used, you will come to the same conclusion that I have i.e. for you and all True Believers to earnestly seek the same spiritual supernatural worldview on God and the things of God – something called a spiritual supernatural Biblical Christian Worldview. God is truly real! He is living, loving, and intricately and intimately involved in the life of every human being who has ever been naturally conceived. His involvement in each human’s life starts from before time began when only God was, and His plans for each naturally conceived human being was written in His Book of Life from before time began. This Book of Life contains at least 100 billion pages to this present time– one page for each naturally conceived person from Adam and Eve. Plus how many more pages for His future offspring only He knows those who are yet to come?
Listen to what Jesus said about His intimacy with His adopted Children. “Anyone refusing to walk through the gate into a sheepfold, who sneaks over the wall, must surely be a thief! For a shepherd comes through the gate. The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep hear his voice and come to him; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. He walks ahead of them; and they follow him, for they recognize his voice. They won’t follow a stranger but will run from him, for they don’t recognize his voice.”
Those who heard Jesus use this illustration didn’t understand what he meant, so he explained it to them. “I am the Gate for the sheep,” he said. “All others who came before me were thieves and robbers. But the true sheep did not listen to them. Yes, I am the Gate. Those who come in by way of the Gate will be saved and will go in and out and find green pastures. The thief ‘s purpose is to steal, kill and destroy. My purpose is to give life in all its fullness. (John 10:1-10) TLB
At the beginning of this APPENDIX, I asked the question, “IS THERE A TRUE, LIVING, and LOVING GOD? DO YOU KNOW HIM?? DOES HE KNOW YOU???” It is not His fault if you cannot answer YES to ALL of these questions! As I have stated in this book, when you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, Lord God, and Master you partook of God’s divine nature and God the Holy Spirit came to live in you and you live in God. You now share in God’s spiritual profile – “STANDARD.” (9) You are a new spiritual creation. You have a ONENESS with God that is eternal and out of this world. (10) This ONENESS must be used to bring glory, honor, and praise to God as He is revealed in the testimonies of your life, the lives of your family, and the lives of your church family!
