 What God do you serve?

I serve, Yahweh, Jehovah, The Lord Jesus Christ

Deuteronomy 6:
[4] Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
[5] And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

Matthew 22:
[37] Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
[38] This is the first and great commandment.

I believe in a God Head, Trinity, The Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Colossians 2:
[8] Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
[9] For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
[10] And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

Don't believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God? According to the book of Hebrews chapter 1 verse 9. God the Father calls his Son (Jesus Christ) God.

Hebrews 1:
[8] But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

God is a Holy God and there is none like him.
1 Samuel 2:
[1] And Hannah prayed, and said, My heart rejoiceth in the LORD, mine horn is exalted in the LORD: my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies; because I rejoice in thy salvation.
[2] There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God.

Isaiah 5:
[16] But the LORD of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and God that is holy shall be sanctified in righteousness.

When I say the Lord is Holy what does the word Holy actually mean? In terms of the Bible it litterly means to be seperated or there is non like him. The Lord God Almighty is Holy Holy Holy

Revelation 4:
[8] And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.
[9] And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever,

So ask yourselves. What is more like the Lord? Your toliet or The Seraphim which dwell in the midst of the Lord worshiping him?

The answer is nether are. God is like no one or nothing, nothing can be like him since he created all this for his glory..

Yes the Lord is a God of Love but as much as he loves he also hates. The bible says that God is angry daily... And yes he hates sin but he HATES all of those who commit the sin. If you are outside of the Son of God Christ Jesus the bible says that you are evil and at war with the Lord and his wrath is towards you because you hate him and his Holyness.

Psalms 5:

[4] For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.
[5] The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.

Psalms 50:

[22] Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.

We are all evil and will die in our sins. and the very best deeds we do. No mater how pure, and righteous and good in our eyes and DISGUSTING FILTHY RAGS BEFORE THE LORD AND HE TOSS THEM ASIDE AND YOU INTO HELL IF YOU COME BEFORE HIM ON THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT in your own righteousness.

Isaiah 64:
[6] But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

Jesus calls us all evil.
Luke 11:
[13] If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

Isaiah 64:
[6] But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

 God's judgement towards us since we are all God hating and evil

So then if we are all dead in our sins how can one person be saved from the wrath and judgement of God?

Jeremiah 5:

[22] Fear ye not me? saith the LORD: will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it?
[23] But this people hath a revolting and a rebellious heart; they are revolted and gone.

Revelation 21:

[8] But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Mathew 23:
[33] Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

God sent us Salvation, himself the Son of God and he is the ONLY thing that can save us from eternal death and wrath of the Lord.

Part 2: 7. All of us have and continue to sin

Romans 3:
[23] For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Salvation is given to ALL of those who will believe and CONFESS, CONFESS, CONFESS your SINS to the Lord Jesus Christ

Proverbs 28: [13] He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.
1st John 1:
[9] If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Mark 1:

[15] And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

What happened on the cross?

Mathew 27:
[46] And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

Why did Jesus Christ who is the Son of God say this?

Well up until this point God the Father and Son never ever EVER took their eyes off of each other. When Jesus prayed in the garden of gethsemane he prayed to the Father asking him 3x to let this cup pass from him.

Mathew 26:
[39] And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

What was in this cup that was to be given to Jesus Christ and why was he so afraid that he even sweet blood while he was in praying?


Isaiah 53:
[7] He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
[8] He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
[9] And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
[10] Yet it pleased the LORD to CRUSH him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand

When Jesus Christ was on the cross this is what happened....

Jesus took on the sins of the world and became an ABOMINATION in the Site of his Father and because of this God the Father poured out his cup of wrath upon the Lord Jesus Christ and CRUSHED HIM under his full fury. Then left his Son and ABANDONED HIM.

and Jesus Christ gave up his Spirit and died.

Mark 16:
[6] And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.

John 3:
[16] For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Ephesians 2:
[8] For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
[9] Not of works, lest any man should boast.


************************* GOD"S LOVE FOR MANKIND *************************

1st Timothy 2:
[5] For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

1st John 4:
[7] Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
[8] He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

John 3:
[16] For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
[17] For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
[18] He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

His Son being Jesus Christ, he sent to die and take on the full wrath of God for our sakes, but there is a catch, sin MUST be paid for. But like always,

John 3:
[19] And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
[20] For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

Acts 16:
[30] And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
[31] And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

If you have read all of this do you understand what all of this means? You see God's hatred, his wrath how evil cannot be in his sight now can he be tempted by Evil. Yet Jesus Christ, came to earth became a man and DIED so that we might have eternal life. Without Jesus Christ and his sacrfice, taking on the wrath of God and becoming an abomination in his sight then NONE Of us would have no hope and would DIE in our sins.

I cannot read these 2 next verses without crying which I am right now because of how beautiful they are...

Song of Solomon 4:
[7] Thou art all fair, my love; there is no spot in thee.

When you call upon the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ and believe that God the Father raised him from the dead and repent of your sins to him he is faithful and just to forgive us of our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. And there will be no sin or uncleanness in you because Jesus' Christ baptizes you in his Blood and purges you of your sins.

Song of Solomon 8:
[6] Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.

These 2 passages just bring me to tears. God loved us so much that he slew his own Son upon a cross because he bore our sins then raised him from the dead. So that we might be Sons and Daughters of the most High.

Galatians 4:
[6] And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
[7] Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.


Around the Network

so i read the first couple of lines and quickly lost interest. does this in any way have to do with video games or hardware sales. my impression is no.

Is this some kind of a spoof on the Flying Spaghetti Monster? I'm seeing a lot of similarities, so I hope you're not infringing on anybody's copyrights.

Ok this is spam. It may be religious instead of commercial (buy toshiba dvd players for 22 dollars!),

But it's still the same thing.

I'm a mod, come to me if there's mod'n to do. 

Chrizum is the best thing to happen to the internet, Period.

Serves me right for challenging his sales predictions!

Bet with dsisister44: Red Steel 2 will sell 1 million within it's first 365 days of sales.

Why do Christians always feel compelled to force everyone to believe them, even when they themselves don't agree on virtually anything.

Ya know, one thing thats amazing about the Bible is I could use it to disprove anything you prove by using it.
