Consider: Why did God The Father, God The Son (Jesus Christ), and God The Holy Spirit create you?

"Let us make man in our image, after our likeness" -- Genesis 1:26

"For it was you who created my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother's womb." Psalm 139:13 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)

"For I know the plans I have for you"--this is the LORD's declaration--"plans for your welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11 (HCSB)

Consider the diverse, all around evidence, from all angles possible...including from atheists themselves

"And all were astounded at the evidence of God's mighty power and His majesty and magnificence. But [while] they were all marveling at everything Jesus was doing, He said to His disciples, Let these words sink into your ears: the Son of Man is about to be delivered into the hands of men [ whose conduct is opposed to God]" - Luke 9:43-44 Amplified Translation

Consider that the very 'Creation' the case for a Creator of our universe, is an undeniable scientific fact going into 2018

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made" - John 1:1-3

Some come to know Jesus with a simple and clearer understanding of what is meant by, 'Born Again!'

Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. “That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. “Do not be amazed that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ “The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” John 3:5-8

For the greatest benefit we encourage everyone to start here, then Matthew, Mark, Luke, and on through the balance of the New Testament. As for the Old Testament (OT), begin with Proverbs then Psalms and then from Genesis through to the end of Revelation. Somewhere along this journey, as with all readers, you will begin to sense as to why people refer to this book as the living word of God. Our Creator God and Savior...Jesus Christ is alive and well ***

Some come to know Jesus, remaining steadfast in their belief, by faith alone, by way of seeking out a Full-Gospel Fellowship of Believers who are hungry for the absolute truth of God's inerrant and infallible word, nothing added, nothing taken away, as God's chosen leader delivers, without showmanship, His message in an atmosphere of expectancy that His people can experience the fulfillment of His countless promises available to us

"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness" 2 Timothy 3:16 (KJV)

WHY JESUS ... WHY THE HOLY BIBLE?

  • It's been said there are only two types of religion 'Human Accomplishment' and 'Divine Accomplishment'

  • It has also been said that the Christian faith is a religion only to those who abuse said word for profit or interpret according to denominational preferences; when in fact it's about a personal relationship with the promised Savior and Living God, Jesus Christ.

  • When we get up close and personal with religious materials, respectfully that of Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism (former contemporary of Confucius), Hinduism, or say Islam for example, their writings (scriptures), are the founding of one man, and in the case of Buddhism, other men (Buddhist) who come and go, by dying and being placed in a grave as with all men (women) who die, including Muhammad, who also is still in the grave.

  • Another reason is that we are unable to go to 'RELIGION' and create movies such as HERE, because the teaching cannot provide us with word for word story-lines or consistent chapter by chapter unfolding of actual history supported by archaeological evidences of historical markers.

  • Religion delivers what we would expect from 'Human Accomplishment' ~ wise sayings ~ references to other religious quotes of their time (Mecca and Muhammad and 360 plus religions of his day introducing the 6237 verses | 114 chapters of the Quran) ~ unsupported declarations, materials or claims ~ inconsistent, disarranged, and shuffled text in its delivery leaving us void of dependable, rational and a steady flow of what one would expect from unwavering 'Divine' truth.

  • The Holy Bible comes to us by way of forty plus (40+) God inspired (Holy Spirit) authors, supported by every means known to man, including archaeological, scientific, mathematical, geological, and historical evidences, along with 31,173 verses of nothing shy of the infallible, inerrant word of our Living Creator who assures us by saying: "I will never leave you nor forsake you," and "I am the way the truth and the life . No one comes to the Father except through me" ... thus revealing to us our Living God and Savior, Jesus Christ, by 'Divine Accomplishment.'

When We See The World For The Black & White it is

Not denying it ... Not running from it ... Knowing its true colors ...

... that truth begins to set us free ... unimaginably

Seeing The World for what it is, is Not a Bad Thing

Being bold for truth is not judging any one or any thing ...

Meaning

When we put God first...we become the best spouse, parent, friend, neighbour, co-worker, etc., etc., while discovering plentiful love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, and goodness in return for faith alone.

But hold on a minute, you're thinking: "I've known plenty of Christians and they've been as bad as those who are not!" No excuses! Unless God is first, we too are no different than anyone else apart from one crucial point; the soul of a born-again Christian will live on for eternity...they are saved.

4 verses from scripture can help - John 11:25 * Romans 10:9-10 * Romans 10:13 * 2 Corinthians 5:21

God wants you to know Him

God's greatest desire is for you to see a clear picture of His character. When you see Him clearly, you will find His love irresistible.

His Face

For many, "seeing God clearly" requires that they see God's face. However, how He looks is not the issue. Seeing and understanding His character is what's most important. The more clearly we understand Him, the more we will find His love irresistible. As we begin to experience His love, our own lives will begin to make more sense.

God most clearly reveals His character in three great events. The first is His creation of man and woman--and His giving them the freedom of choice. He created humans with the ability to choose to love Him or to hate Him! The death of Jesus Christ, God's only Son, on the cross as our substitute is the second great event. In that act He paid the penalty we deserve for our hateful choices toward God and His ways. Jesus' death guarantees forgiveness for those choices and allows us to spend eternity with Him. The third event confirms the first two and fills every heart with hope: Christ's tomb is empty! He is alive, living to fill us with His love!

God to You

Jesus' disciple John wrote that if everyone wrote all the stories they knew about Jesus, the whole world could not contain them. Our knowledge of God helps us understand His love, character, and grace. Experiencing that love begins a lifelong adventure in growth and service. This knowledge and experience powers our mission to tell the world about His love and His offer of salvation.

Scripture directs how we live.
Scripture is a road map. The Bible is God's voice, speaking His love personally to you today.

The Bible speaks the Creator's directions to us, like a detailed road map that clearly shows the exit ramp directly into heaven. It is also much like an owner's manual for a life ready to be lived on the cutting edge of liberty.

Sometimes His voice speaks through stories, such as those of David and Goliath, Ruth and Boaz, Naaman's little servant girl, Christ on the cross, and fisherman Peter learning how to tend sheep. Some of these stories teach us how to handle the troubles we face each day. Others fill us with hope and peace. Each of them is like a personal letter from God to you.

Own Choices

Portions of Scripture are direct instructions and laws from God such as the Ten Commandments, recorded in Exodus 20. These tell us more about God and His expectations for us. When people asked Jesus to summarize these commands, He focused on the way God's love affects the way we live. "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind," He said. And "love your neighbor as yourself."

On other pages the Bible gives God's practical advice and encouragement through parables, lists, promises, and warnings. Amazingly, though many different writers throughout thousands of years wrote the Bible, each page describes the same God in ways we can understand and apply in our lives today. This book is always His voice talking personally to anyone who is willing to read and hear.

God loves us even when we choose to reject His love. In those times He allows us to walk away into the life of our own choices. Yet He is still there, always ready to redeem us from the results of our decisions.

Jesus is the one who never changes in a universe that always does. Jesus is Creator, Sustainer, Savior, Friend, God's Son, and God Himself!

God's Will

Everything in this world is always changing, even our desires, interests, skills, and body shapes. But Jesus? He's consistent. He's always the same. Sure, He's always surprising us and touching our lives in thousands of new and different ways, but His character is unchanging. He's God's Son, the Creator, our Savior, and Friend.

Jesus has promised to be all of that, and more, for each of us. We can trust His promises because He is God. When the words of Colossians say "in Him all things hold together" (1:17, NIV) that includes everything in our lives. He keeps us whole when the enemy is trying to make us fall apart.

'We Are Not God,' identifies with scripture, word for word, nothing added, nothing taken away, all 31,173 verses worth, that Jesus is one of the three persons, called the Trinity, who make up our one God. The Bible describes Jesus, the Father, and the Holy Spirit as each being committed to our growth as Christians and to our salvation as their children. They made this salvation possible when Jesus came to Bethlehem as a human baby. He lived a life perfectly in accord with God's will and then died innocently for all of our sins. He was placed in a borrowed tomb, but He came back to life three days later. Now he is in heaven interceding with the Father for us, preparing for our deliverance from sin and death.

His Face

When everything may be falling apart, when you feel totally alone in the universe, Jesus is right there in the center of it all, offering personal peace and hope. Allow Him into your life. He immediately begins "remodeling" who you are and how you live. Jesus, in fact, is busily transforming His followers into accurate representatives of God's character.

Look to Jesus, and you'll be looking into the understanding and loving face of God.

God's vision for you is  life as He lives it!

God loves you, and wants to give you the highest quality of life imaginable.

No, not a second-rate existence somewhere on earth, but the highest quality of life imaginable, here and in eternity with Him! That's what God wants us to have. The best!

This is why He provides church families where we can belong. This is why He gives each of us special gifts and talents, so we can live life fully. Amazingly, this is why He's concerned about what you're doing, when you're doing it, and how you relate to Him. God doesn't want anything to get in the way of our friendship. He especially doesn't want us to get involved in anything damaging or hurtful. He's like a loving father or a good big brother. He's someone who loves you so much that He's always looking out for you.

Blessings

When God designed you, He included special talents and skills that will help you become a uniquely valuable individual. These may be your ability to teach, your love for others, or your leadership skills. Still, whatever special gifts you have received, God has also provided all of the energy and wisdom necessary for you to use them well.

By the way, how God feels about death is part of the quality life He offers. For followers of Christ, death holds no fear. Remember, Jesus defeated death on Calvary and has given us freedom from death. Cemeteries, then, are filled with followers of God who are in the "peaceful pause before the resurrection." Yes, they are dead, but that death holds no power over their future. Jesus is coming to take them (and those of us who are still living) HOME! Death is almost like a wintry promise of spring.

Faith for today, and for the future, comes by way of seeing this life "overflowing" with hope!

Because love is the key aspect of His character, God is also deeply into gratitude. Before we even finish saying thank you, He's already busy sending more blessings.

His Rest

In the heart of God is a place you can experience as home. God loves you, and wants to spend time with you personally, one on one, as two close friends.

Because you and God are friends, you will spend time together as friends do. Each morning you'll share a hello and a hug and discuss how you can face the day's events together. Throughout the day you'll talk with Him about how you feel. You'll laugh with Him at funny things and ache with Him over sadness and hurts. It's pleasant being God's friend, able to snuggle comfortably into the safety of your relationship. You can always trust Him to treat you well, because He loves you.

The seventh day (Saturday) is an extra-special part of the relationship. The Bible, from Genesis through Revelation, describes the seventh day as the one day God has set aside for focused fellowship with His people. God has named that day "Sabbath" and asked us to spend it with Him. "Remember the Sabbath day," He says, "to keep it holy." The Sabbath is a whole day to deepen our friendship with the Creator of the universe! A day when we're together, Jesus with us and us with Jesus.

We do not argue the point of celebration services being on Saturday or Sunday, as it is also fair to believe as supported in scripture, that Jesus became our rest, our 'Sabbath,' our 24/7, 365 day a year overseer.

No Limit

Also worth mentioning, we read in the Aramaic Bible, Mark 9:39 - Yeshua said to them, “Do not forbid him, for there is no man who does a powerful work in my name and can soon speak badly about me." In other words, in fair assessment, if we are speaking truth in Jesus' name, no matter the day, He is not about to cast us out because of it...and both Saturday & Sunday of rest wouldn't nor couldn't hurt any of us.

There's another great truth about friendship with God. It doesn't end in a cemetery, for God is planning a homecoming better than anything we can dream. A homecoming filled with angels, trumpets, Jesus, and resurrections! He's promised to being His followers, those who have accepted the offer of His life-changing love, from this earth to His home, a place He calls heaven. A place where our friendship can go on growing forever, endlessly, joyfully!

God keeps a family album and your picture is in it. God loves you and has a plan for your life. God's love is about you. Personally.

God made you and has a very special plan for your life. It's a plan that will fill you with hope, love, peace, and activity. In fact, when Christ paid the penalty for sin on the cross, that gave Him the right to claim you as His own. As a result, you can experience His love and priceless salvation freely and fully without limit.

Salvation

By the way that album includes all people: Nepalese, Brazilians', Nigerians', Yupiks', Germans', people of every nation, culture, background, gender, hair color, and foot size. In God's eyes all are equally "children of the King, should they choose the living God"!

Salvation? God cleans away all our sins and replaces them with His goodness. We don't have to be "good" for Him to accept us. Nevertheless, we must accept His promise and allow Him to clean out everything the enemy has left in us. Then we begin to experience the transforming power of His love. It's like a giant war: one side pulling us toward empty pleasure and destruction, and God urging us to accept His offer of peace and purpose.

Remember, Jesus has already won the war. He is victorious! We celebrate His victory in our lives when we participate in the Lord's Supper. This meal includes three symbols:

1. Foot washing (John 13:5 - which symbolizes our commitment to love others as Jesus loves us),
2. Bread ("This bread is my flesh," Jesus said, "which I will give for the life of the world," John 6:51, NIV), and
3. Wine or grape juice ("Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life." John 6:54, NIV)

Eternal Life

To help us understand how God can transform us into His children, Jesus modeled the process of baptism for us. Baptism symbolized dying to self and coming alive in Jesus. Full immersion baptism is important because by being fully buried beneath the water we symbolize that God's grace fully fills us with His new life for the future. Through baptism we are truly born again in Jesus.

Eternal life, peace, purpose, forgiveness, transforming grace, hope: Everything He promises is ours, because He's offering it and He's shown we can trust Him to do exactly as He promises. He who calls upon His name (by faith alone) is saved and His promised gifts are ours as part of the package, while becoming an active part of His family.

The Promise

And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life (1 John 2:25).

And now that you belong to Christ, you are the true children of Abraham. You are his heirs, and God's promise to Abraham belongs to you (Galatians 3:29).

The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off--for all whom the Lord our God will call (Acts 2:39).

Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it (Hebrews 4:1).

DOCTRINAL STATEMENT

House of the Messiah Ministries (www.JesusChristLivingGod.com) was first envisioned in the fall of 1987.

Its Doctrinal Statement was noted then and remains to this day as follows:

 

We acknowledge and recognize ALL SCRIPTURE, The Holy Bible, Old and New Testaments, with emphasis Rev 22:18-19 | Deut 4:2 | Prov 30:6, as GOD BREATHED, useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness (2 Tim 3:16), to all and for all ages, in the name of The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit.

JESUS CHRIST is the Son of God.

Born of the Virgin Mary (God in the Flesh), out of Spiritual Conception, as promised by God our Creator and Heavenly Father, was crucified, pronounced dead, buried, raised from the dead on the third day, as God promised, and whom, in this present day, and at this very moment, sits at the right hand of His (Our) Heavenly Father awaiting His glorious and triumphant return ... AMEN!

How & Why We Connect With The Living God

No matter what we believe, we can look around us, at home, work, on the news, and see that our world is falling apart at the seams, socially, spiritually, morally, ethically, materialistically, and with no indication of slowing down or how to resolve the problem.

Religion is often found at the forefront of issues, caught up in the dilemma of, what religion is the right one.

Your author embraces the thought, ‘Forget religion!’

There is no proof in religion, but there is abundant proof for divinity. Consider there are only two types of religion: 1/ Human Accomplishment (Man) and 2/ Divine Accomplishment (The Living God)

If you have ever pondered the idea about who or what to believe, what faith is or is not true and divine, from the overwhelming plethora of thoughts and perspectives available to us this day and age, this book {How & Why We Connect With The Living God}, removes all confusion with the use of an acronym “YOU ARE WORTH IT” and then targets the scripture, word for word that unfolds for us the ‘How’ and ‘Why’ we would and should give serious consideration for what comes next, after life as we know it comes to an end.

‘YOU ARE WORTH IT’ is broken down as follows:

Y/oke…we live and learn from the yoke of God
O/verseer…we live with the gift of an overseer
U/nity…we live in unity with all men

A/bstain…we live abstaining from all unrighteousness
R/epent…we live in righteousness through repentance
E/dify…we live to edify others of the grace and love of God

W/ork…we live, work and do all things as unto Him
O/bey…we live to obey honest correction and rebuke
R/ejoice…we live to rejoice in our freedom and peace of mind
T/ithe…we live to give (tithe) in furthering His absolute truth
H/umble…we live in humbleness at all times, void of pride

I/nheritance…we live in His inheritance, which is also ours
T/hanksgiving…we live to give thanks for all things in Christ’s name

You truly are worth it, and encouraged to add this brilliant ‘How’ & ‘Why’ approach to your library … for the reason of simplifying the clear distinction between human accomplishment (man) and divine accomplishment (God) … while discovering the absolute truth of Jesus Christ and His inerrant, infallible word found within the pages of The Holy Bible … all 31,173 verses worth.

Apples to Apples - the truth will set you free

The objective of this book is to spread the good news, the message of hope and love, in a way that people will take notice of both sides, as with the need for every story, and perhaps for the first time, become desirous for truth over fiction, falsehood and mythology that is running rampant in our ‘anything-goes’ culture.

There is much more at stake when we choose to believe in something. We must take eternity for example, more seriously. When we close our eyes for the last time what happens to us? Is there such a person and place as ’St. Peter at heavens pearly gates?’ – Or the ‘devil with the red face, two horns and a pitch fork?’ I’m being somewhat facetious here, but also very real.

All ‘religions,’ including Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormonism, New Age, Islam, Buddhism, Judaism or Christianity, for example, proclaim, “We are the way.” So who’s right?

Is there more than one way to heaven?

Should we not justify these beliefs by considering the proof or factual evidence available in support of what is proclaimed as being true; are facts no longer relevant?

How do we know man is not the author of our belief system, or whether or not the text is God inspired?

Is there archaeological evidence in support of the books being referenced and professed as true?

Is there evidence in support of divinity, versus man playing god?

Should we be considering the definition of idolatry prior to placing our eternal soul and trust in something or someone?

Is there anything that separates the scriptural writings in which we believe to be true, from countless other faiths, such as how life began ... where the different languages and skin colors came from or perhaps information that only exists in our text long before man's discovery of said text?

Should logic and common sense be taken into consideration as we evaluate our faith of choice?

Should we for example place our trust in a faith that believes in all prophets, when all proclaimed prophets throughout history came delivering different messages? One Buddhist for example, not judging, claims we have a soul ... and another says we do not!

This book, 'APPLES TO APPLES - the truth will set you free,' is a side by side comparison of 12 faiths in which billions are placing their eternal trust. It is the author's humble opinion that no one can read this book and walk away without having a clear distinction between man playing god, and the divine God in action.

What do you believe? | Are you going to heaven when you die? | How do you know? | Do you care?

Perhaps it's worth a closer look, considering eternity is a very long time.

Is There a Simple Clarity and Distinction Between Prosperity Preaching, chasing after money, and What God is Offering Those Who Trust Wholeheartedly by faith in Him alone?

The one clear similarity between the 'rich' and 'poor,' is that God is the maker of them both.

SO, did God create people to be poor, or did He create us all equal in His own image, and the poor part is the result of our own doing and blindness through devilish greed and selfish-motivation that has driven socioeconomic conditions to their max?

GotQuestions.org addresses a great point to a hot topic in THIS ARTICLE, while delivering the all too common shortfall of traditional thought within the church body that there is somehow righteousness in being poor, backing that up with accepting our circumstances as is and to remain as such ... when in fact that is only half the truth God shares with us in His word; considering Psalm 23:1 says "I Shall Not Want," ... not I shall not need ... for we know our needs will be met already.

SO, does God want His creation to be poor and survive life while the devil finances the world's direction, or to live life with joy and abundance, sharing, loving all, and judging none and giving with cheerful hearts? And MONEY IS NOT THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL!

Have a look - you decide: Mark 11:24 | Deut 8:18 | John 15:7 | Luke 6:38 | 2 Cor 9:6 | Prov 3:9 | Ps 37:4 + Js 4:3 | Matt 7:11 | Ps 84:11 | Matt 21:22 | ... "Chasing money is the curse, having money is the freedom, knowing what to do with it is the blessing" (TM).
