Reading: Matthew 22:23-33
“I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. He is not the God of the dead but of the living” v.32.
My friend, if you are telling me that yes, there is only one God but he comes with many names—watch out, you might be following a different god. Is he the God who made the world and everything in it? The Lord of heaven and earth, who made the sea and land? The God who made people and determined at which point they would be born and where? The God who loves you and sent His only Son to take your place of punishment by death, and raised Him on the third day? The God of people who we think are already dead—but are actually now with Him and whose bodies will be resurrected and glorified at the end of the age?
If you are following a god who is not as powerful and as loving as the One I have mentioned above—that is not a god but just a temporary ruler, working double time as his end is near.
Would you like to know the One, true, all-powerful, all-knowing, everywhere-present God I have mentioned above? You can find Him in the pages of the Holy Bible—and He can also live within you—if you ask Him.
I pray that the Lord will reveal Himself to you, my friend, just as He revealed Himself to people of long ago, and to those who seek Him now.
