“I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God”? (John 20:17)
This HAS always been a confusion to me, on how our Lord Jesus Christ stresses out of this higher being that He believes in, that He will go to…or simply another existence that is NOT Him. That when I was raised to believe that Jesus and that God He talks about in third person all the time is one and the same, it left me asking “How can that be?” This is one of the questions I asked the elders and those that have the authority to answer me that time, BUT it all ends up with them telling me to “just believe because it is something so powerful for mankind to comprehend”. Is that so? But God Himself said that EVERYTHING is written in His book: the Bible.
How can our Lord Jesus (and His apostles) keep telling us and writing down that Jesus and God is NOT one and the same, and man saying otherwise? If Jesus talks to the Father saying “Now this is eternal life: that they may know You, the One True God, and Jesus whom you have sent” (John 17:3), will we contradict Him by saying that there is Three and not One? That the “knowledge of truth” that Apostle Timothy tells in the “Instructions on Worship” is NOT precise?
“For there is ONE God and ONE Mediator between God and men, the MAN Christ Jesus” (1 Tim. 2:5)
That the bible to which God himself said to be complete and suffice forgot to mention that there is another God beside the One True God, our Father? That God’s very 1st Commandment of having “No other God’s before me” is NOT as it is, and that He was not able to specifically say…no other God’s before me and my other persona’s?
We all believe that our Lord Jesus Christ was sent to save us, but not all believe His EVERY word (I truly wonder why?!). And NOT believing in His words connotes NOT believing in God’s words because so many time did Jesus said that it is not Him but that of who sent Him. Just as in this verse, “For I gave them the words You gave me” (John 17:8) when He was once praying to the Almighty God.
We are not kids anymore to just take in what our parents and elders say. We have the ablity to rationalize and to decide what is right and wrong. BUT WE CANNOT DO SO UNTIL WE HAVE THE FACTS LAID DOWN BEFORE US. That in every comparison there is the existing truth and falsehood; there is the right and the wrong; there is the “what was led for us to believe” and “what we decide to believe”. Stand tall and look into your left, into your right…then decide which path to take.
LIKE IN THIS INSTANCE ~ There is only ONE TRUE GOD
and that is our Almighty Father!
And there is the ONE MEDIATOR BETWEEN GOD AND MAN
and that is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
This is the TRUTH from the very words of God!
LOOK…for you might be missing the ONLY right way.
