    'God Is'



    "Good morning. Here is a piece I received from a pastor friend from Texas that I wanted to share with you.

    "Well said, teacher," the man replied. "You are right in saying that God is one and there is no other but Him." - Mark 12:32 (NIV)
    Throughout the Bible, a theme is repeated; "GOD IS." That phrase alone is used 161 times. A few short years ago, there was a father and son singing team that went by "Aaron Jeffrey." They wrote and performed a song called "HE Is." These are the lyrics to that awesome song that describes some of the things HE IS;

    He Is

    In Genesis, He's the breath of life
    In Exodus, the Passover Lamb
    In Leviticus, He's our High Priest
    Numbers, The fire by night
    Deuteronomy, He's Moses' voice
    In Joshua, He is salvation's choice
    Judges, law giver
    In Ruth, the kinsmen-redeemer
    First and second Samuel, our trusted prophet
    In Kings and Chronicles, He's sovereign

    Ezra, true and faithful scribe
    Nehemiah, He's the rebuilder of broken walls and lives
    In Esther, He's Mordecai's courage
    In Job, the timeless redeemer
    In Psalms, He is our morning song

    In Proverbs, wisdom's cry
    Ecclesiastes, the time and season
    In the Song of Solomon, He is the lover's dream

    He is, He is, HE IS!

    In Isaiah, He's Prince of Peace
    Jeremiah, the weeping prophet
    In Lamentations, the cry for Israel
    Ezekiel, He's the call from sin
    In Daniel, the stranger in the fire

    In Hosea, He is forever faithful
    In Joel, He's the Spirits power
    In Amos, the arms that carry us
    In Obadiah, He's the Lord our Savior
    In Jonah, He's the great missionary

    In Micah, the promise of peace
    In Nahum, He is our strength and our shield
    In Habakkuk and Zephaniah, He's pleading for revival
    In Haggai, He restores a lost heritage
    In Zechariah, our fountain

    In Malachi, He is the son of righteousness rising with healing in His wings

    He is, He is, HE IS!"

    "In Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, He is God, Man, Messiah
    In the book of Acts, He is fire from heaven
    In Romans, He's the grace of God
    In Corinthians, the power of love
    In Galatians, He is freedom from the curse of sin

    Ephesians, our glorious treasure
    Philippians, the servants heart
    In Colossians, He's the Godhead Trinity
    Thessalonians, our coming King
    In Timothy, Titus, Philemon He's our mediator and our faithful Pastor

    In Hebrews, the everlasting covenant
    In James, the one who heals the sick.
    In First and Second Peter, he is our Shepherd
    In John and in Jude, He is the lover coming for His bride
    In the Revelation, He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords

    He is, He is, HE IS!

    The prince of peace
    The Son of man
    The Lamb of God
    The great I AM

    He's the alpha and omega
    Our God and our Savior
    He is Jesus Christ the Lord
    and when time is no more
    He is, HE IS!

    In the beginning... HE was. HE has always been... GOD. HE will always be... GOD. When Moses asked GOD what His name was, GOD replied, "I am." isn't that comforting? It should be... time and time again we are assured that HE is. Leave no doubt in your mind."




    Being Occupied with Christ,
    Pastor Jim R...

    The human emotional complex is designed to appreciate and is devoid of the least capacity for rational thought. Subjectivity and feeling

    are inconsequential. Mind does its job with three tools: empiricism (experience it); rationalism (figure it out); (quantum leaps of) faith.

    I would think the same way she feels about :

    1Cor 11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man...

    and

    1 Tim 2:9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
    10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.
    11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
    12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
    13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
    14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
    15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.


    Life is tough.

    True God is a Spirit, but spirits have characteristics of males, God The FATHER, God The SON, God The Holy Spirit (The spouse of Mary) and angels appear as males.

    male in what sense?

    Does God have a penis? or facial hair?

    God is a spirit, therefore he can't be male.

    yes but it just helps us grasp spiritual 'family'. Angels have no gender, for they do not procreate as humans do, they are simply created entities, are they not?

    Yes, God is a spirit being and is worshipped in spirit and truth. However, it verges on intellectual dishonesty to ignore the fact that

    the revealed member, Christ in hypostatic union (perfect humanity and undiminished deity in one unique person forever) is male.

    Had Christ been born a woman, who would have listened to a word she said 2000 years ago. Christ HAD to be born male to be taken seriously.
