Who Is God?

I heard someone that claims to have a unique “spiritual gift of wisdom” when asked that question, deliberately remained silent.   After a few moments he said that being silent was, in fact, the answer.  He said that any definition he could otherwise conjure up and utter would diminish who God really is.

To quote one of the great writers and philosophers in history Henry David Thoreau stated, “In human intercourse the tragedy begins, not when there is misunderstanding about words, but when SILENCE is not understood.”

Imagine allowing one of your children to be physically abused and ravaged.  To be beaten and struck with open hands and closed fists – their hair literally pulled so hard that clumps come out.  To have their back scourged upon with strips of twine that had sharp metal prongs on the tips making welts and pulling at their flesh.  To be cursed at and spit upon, just to name a few of the many tortures that the debased nature of mankind is capable of inflicting!

Would you allow your precious child, grandchild, soul mate, your parent or someone else so dear to your heart to be ravaged like this?  Would you allow this to happen and for why – for the sake of a stranger?  You say – you have got to be insane!  I can’t even imagine of allowing my mind to dwell on such a horrible thought – but God did!

You may have only spent a limited number of years with your loved one – or perhaps even close to a lifetime.  God and His Son were together throughout the eternities past!  Such a love the Father had for his Son over the eons of time, we can’t begin to comprehend.   And yet he allowed his son to become human and be physically abused, ravaged and suffer untold agonies and then nailed to a tree and left to die!  And why?  Because HE LOVED YOU – YES YOU!

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that WHOSOEVER believes in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life” (the gospel by the apostle John 3:16).

Once again, who is God?  Who is He that wants to give you sure-footed security?  Who is He that wants to give you peace beyond understanding?  Who is He that wants to embrace you with such a wondrous love – warmth and comfort  – power to pursue your dreams – GOD IS LOVE!

Believe in God and His Son, the lord Jesus Christ, the One who gave His life for you, and your life will be transformed!  Believe in John 3:16 quoted above and your heart’s door will be open for His love to enter in!  God the Father, and His Son Jesus Christ – the anointed One, will never – ever abandon you!  He alone can meet every challenge that confronts your life victoriously – He will never leave you alone to be confused or forsaken.  His divine love for you is FROM everlasting TO everlasting!

Staying “silent” of this very fact – would otherwise forever rob you!
