The Spirit of God

spirit of god

Gen.1:1 says, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." "In the beginning" points to the beginning of time and creation. The point to note here is that if God was already there in the beginning, then God precedes the beginning. If God precedes the beginning, then God is eternal. Moses is the author of Genesis and Psalm 90. Psa.90:1-2 says, Lord, You have b...

Creation of Mankind

creation of mankind1

In this article I want to take up the subject of the Biblical account of God's creation of mankind. That account is recorded for us in Gen.1:26-31 2:7-9, 15-25. Both accounts deal with God's creation of mankind on the sixth day. Take careful note of how I have set out the reading of both chapters. 1:24 Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth living creatures after thei...

Creation of Mankind part 2

creation part 2

Let us consider the following : 1). God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, and according to Our likeness." This is an astonishing truth. Man is made to reflect in a finite manner what the infinite God is like and to have fellowship with God. It must be emphasized that all men and women, without exception, are equally made in the image of God. The image of God is every p...

All I Want is Justice

all i want is justice

From time to time, when talking with people about the claims of the gospel, they would reject the gospel and say, "When I stand in the final judgment, all I want, from whatever God there is, is justice." The basis of this statement is generally based on the following : (1) all men are basically good and capable of good works; (2) the final judgment, if there is one, will b...

The Choice

THE CHOICE

Choices. We face them every day. We make them every day. Some choices are easy to make. Some choices are more difficult and we need to gather information and think carefully before making the choice. And then there are those choices we wish we did not have to deal with. Some people tend to ignore them with the hope that they will go away. In the Bible we have the record...

Psalm 123. To You I lift up my eyes, O You who are enthroned in the heavens! 2 Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master, As the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, So our eyes look to the LORD our God, Until He is gracious to us. 3 Be gracious to us, O LORD, be gracious to us, For we are greatly filled with contempt. 4 Our soul is g...

The-Hearing-Prayer-One

Psalm 65:1, "To You praise is due, O God, in Zion; To You a vow is performed." (NICOT Psalms). The opening lines in this psalm begins with "To You". The LXX (Septuagint or Greek OT) translated "praise is due" as "praise is fitting or proper." Why is it fitting to praise God? Firstly, praise is fitting because God is the hearing-prayer-One. Vs.2 says, "O You who hear pr...

Not Not

not not

"I do not not believe in evolution." Your first reaction to this sentence will be to correct it by removing one "not". You will assert that this is not correct English. And you will be right. However, if this statement was written in Greek, it would be correct because it would be regarded as an emphatic declaration. The Greek New Testament has many examples of this "not no...

Beloved

The apostle Paul described the Christians in Rome as "beloved of God" (Rom.1:7). He described the Thessalonian Christians as "beloved by God" (1Thess.1:4) and as "beloved by the Lord" (2Thess.2:13). In all three instances it is proper to say that Christians are God's beloved people. In Rom.1:7 "beloved" is a verbal adjective with a passive sense. Firstly, the adjective sa...
