This is a Bible study on Facts about GOD.     Click here for a printable Bible Study Guide.

Special Note:  There is not enough room in the whole world to write down the Glory of God, the Majesty of God, the Wonder of God, or the Grace of God.  No book or website in this world could contain all the fullness of God.  God is greater than anything we can imagine.  Our meager attempt with this website is to share and give people a glimpse of God's Glory, endless love and compassion which God has reveled of Himself through His word.

Who is GOD?

 

The dictionary defines God as the supreme or ultimate reality and the being perfect in power, wisdom, and goodness who is worshipped as creator and ruler of the universe.

The word of God states that God is love and God is the Creator of all things. 

God is Eternal.  God existed before anything and will remain forever. 

In the beginning God was and before the beginning of anything God was.  There has never been a time without God.

God is infinite, everlasting, without beginning and without end.  God is the only immortal.

God is love.  Out of God's timeless and limitless love, God created the universe and created man and woman.  God created us to give us all things.  It is up to us to accept His free gifts.

God does not force Himself on any person.  Each person has a choice to accept the knowledge of God.  Every human being has a choice to know God. 

God gives every human being a measure of faith which enables us to believe in Him.  We are all made capable to have faith in God, no exceptions, but it is ultimately our choice to do so, or not.

God desires us to be where He created us to be, which is with Him for all eternity.  By accepting the salvation of God, eternal life, His free gift to all humankind, we become the children of God by His grace through faith in Him, and are permitted to spend eternity with God.

We all have an eternity after we die.   Each person has the choice between two eternities, either with God and without God.

Those who choose NOT to believe in God, will spend their eternity without God

Those who choose to believe in God, will spend their eternity with God

We all are given the same choice, to have faith in God.  Unbelief separates anyone from God for all eternity. 

God is the Creator of all things.  Nothing that was made was made without God, for God created everything.

We are NOT the creator of our own life.  Mankind did not create mankind.  God creates all life, when He breathes life into us.  Man has never and will never create life.  A woman does not create life, she is a host of life, which God created.  Without God there is no life.  God breathes life into every living creature.  Without the breath of God there is no life.

God is the Creator of our lives.  We are nothing without God.  We do not own our own lives, God does, we own nothing.  We only deceive ourselves if we think that we are something.

For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.  Galatians 6:3

For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.  1 Timothy 6:7

I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.  John 15:5

John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.  John 3:27

God is the meaning of our life.   Without God there is no meaning to life.  We need God in our life to live. 

God is enough.  God is more than enough.  God is sufficient, and our sufficiency is God.

We are all born searching for God.  God knows us each individually before we are even born.  God is waiting patiently on us to seek Him, to answer His call to us to come to Him.  God calls every person to Him, but He does not force us to come to Him, we much choose to come to Him.

God promised from the beginning, if we seek Him that we will find HimGod is always with us, all we need to do is receive the knowledge of Him and accept Him into our life.

Who is omnipotent?

 

God is Omnipotent

God is omnipotent, all powerful, having supreme and limitless authority over all things.

And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reignethRevelation 19:6

 

No one can do what God can do

O Lord GOD, thou hast begun to shew thy servant thy greatness, and thy mighty hand: for what God is there in heaven or in earth, that can do according to thy works, and according to thy might?  Deuteronomy 3:24

 

God is Over All

God reigns over all His creation.  God is ruler over all.  God owns all things, everything that we know about, all we can see and all we cannot see belongs to God alone.

Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty:  for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.  Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.  1 Chronicles 29:11-12

And said, O LORD God of our fathers, art not thou God in heaven? and rulest not thou over all the kingdoms of the heathen? and in thine hand is there not power and might, so that none is able to withstand thee?  2 Chronicles 20:6

For the LORD most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth.  Psalm 47:2

That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.  Psalm 83:18

The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.  Psalm 103:19

And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.  Zechariah 14:9

Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.  Romans 9:5

For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.  Romans 10:12

Only the one true living God is the Most High over all the earth.

 


Who is truth?

 

God is truth

God cannot lie

In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;  Titus 1:2

Eternal life was promised before the world began.  From the creation of the first man, first human being, it has been God's will for man to have eternal life and be with Him, God in His Kingdom, the Kingdom of Heaven.

The first estate of man was eternal life.  Man was created to possess eternal life. 

Man gave up his inheritance to everlasting life, when he purposefully sinned against God.  Man choose to listen to the lies of the devil, by believing in the devil, man fell into unbelief in God, man believed the devil over God, sinned against God. 

Separation from God is unbelief in God.  Unless we have faith in God, we will not see God in our eternity.  Unbelief in God separates anyone from God for eternity.

It is not God's will that any of His creation, any person, perish and die in sin.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  John 3:16

 

God of truth and without sin

He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is heDeuteronomy 32:4

God is the Rock, the word of God is perfect, God is a God of truth without iniquity, without sin, God is just and right.

 


Who is the great I AM?

 

God is the great I AM.  God is the I AM of all creation.  The Lord God is the I AM.

I AM THAT I AM

And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.  Exodus 3:14

 

I am the Almighty God

And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.  And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.  Genesis 17:1-2

And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins;  Genesis 35:11

 

I am the LORD

And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD:  Exodus 6:2

I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.  Isaiah 42:8

I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:  That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else.  Isaiah 45:5-6

 

I am GOD

Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.  Psalm 46:10

Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.  Isaiah 45:22

Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,  Isaiah 46:9

 

I am HE

Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I the LORD, the first, and with the last; I am he.  Isaiah 41:4

Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour. I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God.  Isaiah 43:10-12

Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it? I am the LORD, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your King.  Isaiah 43:13, 15

I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.  Isaiah 43:25

Hearken unto me, O Jacob and Israel, my called; I am he; I am the first, I also am the last.  Isaiah 48:12

I, even I, am he that comforteth you: who art thou, that thou shouldest be afraid of a man that shall die, and of the son of man which shall be made as grass;  Isaiah 51:12

Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in that day that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I. Isaiah 52:6

I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.  John 8:24

Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he.  John 9:9

Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he.  John 13:19

They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them. As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground. Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way:  John 18:5-8

And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.  Revelation 1:17-18

 


What does it mean ONE GOD?

 

The scriptures tell us that there is ONLY ONE GOD.

ONE GOD means that there is ONE God; and this means there is ONE GOD, NOT two Gods, NOT three Gods, there is ONE ALMIGHTY GOD, who is the ONE Creator of ALL THINGS.

There has always been only ONE GOD.  There has always only existed ONE GOD.  There will only be ONE GOD for eternity.

Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I AM HE: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.  Isaiah 43:10

The LORD GOD is one God, before Him there was no other God formed, and there is no other God after Him.  There has been one God in eternity forever.

 

The Lord our God is ONE Lord

Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORDDeuteronomy 6:4

And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:  And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.  Mark 12:29-30

And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:  Mark 12:32

As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one.  1 Corinthians 8:4

 

Jesus Christ is LORD and the only begotten Son of our Father God and they are one God.

I and my Father are one.  John 10:30

And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we areJohn 17:11

That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.  John 17:21

And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are oneJohn 17:22

But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.  1 Corinthians 8:6

There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;  One Lord, one faith, one baptism,  One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.  Ephesians 4:4-6

 

These three: Father God and the Word Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost are one God.

For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one1 John 5:7

No other three are called one, only these three are called ONE.

We are to be baptized in the name of one God: the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  Matthew 28:19

How can three be one?  Some people like to argue that three cannot be one, so how can three be one God, simply because these three are God.

Faith in God is believing that God is all who He says that He is.

Faith in God is not believing just some of what He says, NO, faith in God is believing ALL who He says that He is. 

God says that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost are one, so they are.  We are not to dispute the word of God.

Faith in God is believing that He is God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost.

Only through saving faith can anyone believe in God.  The sinful veil of darkness must be lifted from your eyes to see God.  Through faith in God we can know that He is all that He says He is, without faith in God you remain blind to the truth.

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.  Hebrews 11:6

Without faith in God, without believing that God is who He is, you will not see God.

But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same veil untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which veil is done away in Christ.  Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away.  2 Corinthians 3:14,16

Only through faith in God, faith in Jesus Christ as God the Son, can the veil of darkness be removed, and you can turn from darkness to light, from unknowing to knowing, from death to life everlasting.

 

God is ONE

Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one.  Galatians 3:20

There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;  One Lord, one faith, one baptism,  One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.  Ephesians 4:4-6

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;  1 Timothy 2:5

Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.  James 2:19

 

One God

Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?  Malachi 2:10

And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:  Mark 12:32

Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.  Romans 3:30

But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.  1 Corinthians 8:6

One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.  Ephesians 4:6

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;  1 Timothy 2:5

Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.  James 2:19

So if I believe there is only one God I am saved?  No, the scriptures say that the devil believes there is one God.  Believing in one God does not grant salvation.

 

So why does God refer to Himself as "us"?

If God is one God why does He refer to Himself as "us", because there are three in Heaven and these three are one God.

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.  Genesis 1:26

God tells us that there are three that bear record in heaven:  The Father, the Word; and the Holy Ghost - and these three are one.

 

 

The Father, the Word and the Holy Ghost are one

For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.  1 John 5:7

The word of God tells us that God the Father, the Word Christ Jesus and the Holy Ghost, that these three are ONE. 

ONE what?  Who is the Father, but God, these three are one God. 

God the Father can be nothing other than God. 

The Word, which is Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God.  The Son of God came forth from God.  God can only beget God, the Son of God, Jesus Christ is God, God the Son.

The Holy Ghost is from God, and nothing but God can come forth from God, only God can come forth from God, the Holy Ghost is God.

God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost are ONE GOD.

How can this be?  No one can be three entities in one?  But that thinking is man thinking and wrong.  God can do anything.

And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.  Mark 10:27

Please note:  Only these three are one.  The word of God did NOT say every time that three things are grouped together that they are one, God said that THESE THREE are ONE.  Not other groupings of three people are one.

God the Father and the Son of God CANNOT be separated.  They are ONE. 

Jesus said "I AND my Father are ONE."  God the Father can only be God.  The Son of God is God - they are ONE.

I and my Father are one.  John 10:30

God never said that 'man and God are one', or that God and me are one.  We are to be holy as God, we are to follow His Son, we are to live righteous lives as God, but we are never one God, and we are never gods.

 


Is GOD man?

 

A lot of new religions today like to claim that God is a man, or that man is God, these are all false teachings, because God said that He is NOT a man.

False religions and the lost like to bring God down to their level and make Him just like them or any other sinful man. 

 

God is NOT a man

God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it?  Or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?  Numbers 23:19

So many false religions today say man is God, and God is man, this scripture corrects that statement and clearly states God is not a man.

What man would even suggest that they are God?  That's blasphemy!

What does scripture tell us?

Who said they are God?  Satan said he was God and God cast satan out from heaven to be separated for eternity from God.

God cannot sin.  God is NOT human.  God is Spirit.  God is the Creator. God is Eternal.  God is Holy.  God is above ALL things. 

God is the beginning and the end, Alpha and Omega, the first and last.  God existed before ALL things.  God was before anything before.  God is the first of ALL things.

Anyone who says God is man, does not know God, and does not know His word.

And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?  Mark 12:24

 


Is man GOD?

 

Man is NOT God.  God is NOT man and man is NOT God. 

God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it?  Or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?  Numbers 23:19

When we are saved, we become the children of God, but we are never God. 

There is only one God.  There has always been one God and there will always be only one true God.

All throughout the word of God, the saved, the believers of Christ Jesus, are called the children of God, each believer of God is a child of God.

I will always be a child of God.  After 10,000 years in Heaven, I will still be a child of God. 

God's position has never and will never change, HE will always be God, the only one true living God Almighty.  Nothing will ever change that.

No man or woman can ever become God.

Believers are NOT 'a god' and we are NOT 'little gods'.   It is blasphemous to say you are God, or a god, because there is only One Lord God.  To say there is more than one God is calling God a liar.

Many people say that since we are OF God, then we are some sort of God, maybe a "little god".  This is NOT biblical and this is NOT true.  Only God is God.  Human beings cannot and never will be God, or any form of gods.

Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God.  Jesus was not created by God.  God manifest Himself in the flesh is Jesus.  Jesus was begotten of God, Jesus came forth from God to live as a man on this earth.  Jesus has always existed.  Jesus has always been with God.  Jesus has always been God, and will be God for eternity.

Many people cannot comprehend the fact that God can do anything that He wants to do, or be anyone or anything that He wants to be.  The Godhead, the fullness of God is Jesus Christ, and has always been this way. 

Many people cannot believe that God is in three persons:  God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost.  God has always existed this way. 

 

God is the Creator of all things.  God created all things that we know about.  Why can't people believe God is who He says He is?  Why don't all people have faith in God?  God says that the lost people are blind to the truth.  God says that we must believe in Him as God the Father and believe in Him as God the Son and believe in Him as God the Holy Ghost, or we cannot be OF God.

We as human beings are not begotten of God, we were created by God.

 

All humankind was created by God.

We are OF God through adoption by His Son, Jesus Christ.

We are the children of God by adoption, we are adopted into the family of God.

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.  Romans 8:15

We are the children of God through adoption, we are saved by the grace of God through faith, belief in His only begotten Son, faith in Jesus Christ, faith in God. 

Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,  To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.  Ephesians 1:5-6

We as adopted children of God, we inherit the Kingdom of God only through our kinship with Christ Jesus.  Through our relationship with Jesus Christ we belong to God the Father.  We become members of the household of God through our relationship with God the Son.

As children of God, adopted through Jesus into the family of God, we are co-heirs to the kingdom of God, joint-heirs with Christ.

And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.  Romans 8:17

Being adopted into the family of God does NOT make believers into Christ, or into God or into gods or into any form of gods.

 

Being saved does NOT make any man a god.

You may say, but what about the scripture that says 'Ye are gods'. This scripture, like many scriptures, has been taken out of context by many false teaches and false religions.

These scriptures refer to the people at that time that were using their authority as gods.  If you read the entire chapter you see that these people who abused their authority were condemned.

Anyone, any human being, man or woman, that says that they are god or gods, or any form of gods will also be condemned by the one true living God.

Anyone saying they are God or a god, or little gods, receives the wrath of God.  DO NOT BE DECEIVED.

For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord.   And again, The Lord shall judge his peopleIt is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.  Hebrews 10:30-31

To say you are as god or god, puts you into the position of God, equal to God, equal as Creator, there is only one Creator, the one true living God.

Only God is the Creator of all things.  Without repentance, no one can say that they are God without damnation. 

Some people pull certain scriptures out of the bible to condone and validate their false teachings or their living a certain sinful lifestyle.

Take for example the scripture John 1:20 which says, "And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ."

Why would Jesus deny he is the Christ?   (Well, He didn't.)  If we read the verse before that one, John 1:19, we can see that it was not Jesus stating "I am not the Christ", but it was John.

You can pull out any number of scriptures out from the word of God and twist them to say something they do not mean, practically anything you want.  People twist the word of God every day to have it meet their perverted false teachings.

People can manipulate the scriptures to support any number of perverse ideas and theories.  Cults do this all the time, to convert followers into their false religions.

Cults cannot tell their potential members that they serve satan, because most people would not join.  But if they pervert the word of God, twist scripture to support their false teachings, they can trick many people into believing and following their ungodly ways.

God knows this today, as He did back in biblical times, and in His Word we find many scriptures that tell us about such people, who twist His words for their own profit and who change His scriptures to promote their false doctrine.

For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.  2 Corinthians 2:17

Avoid those who cause divisions with false doctrines. 

Do NOT be deceived, people with false doctrines serve only the devil

A little of false teaching is still false teaching and partial truth is still a lie.

Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.  For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.  Romans 16:17-18

Any teaching contrary to the word of God is from the devil by people who serve satan.  God says that we are to avoid such people.

 

 

We are living in the end times. 

These are the last years of the world as we know it, the Lord God is coming soon for His followers, His people.

The scriptures say in the latter times some people will depart from the faith and depart from the sound doctrine of Christ, being seduced by the devil into false doctrines.

False doctrines are everywhere today.  Every town in America contains cults and false doctrines being preached.  All around the world there are people worshipping the devil, engaged in witchcraft and other false doctrines.  These lost souls would rather hear a lie than the truth of God, the word of God reads that they turn away their ears from the truth and turn to fables and lies.

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;  1 Timothy 4:1

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;  And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.  2 Timothy 4:3-4

More than any other time, it is extremely important that we as believer stay in, abide in the doctrine of Christ, remain separated unto the gospel of God. 

Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,  Romans 1:1

By abiding in the doctrine of Christ, remaining separated unto the gospel of God, we hold fast the profession of our faith, hold onto our salvation.

But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.  Revelation 2:25

Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.  He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.  Revelation 3:3,5

We transgress - sin - when we do NOT abide in the doctrine of Christ. 

The word of God reads those who do NOT abide in the doctrine of Christ, that they do NOT have the Father and the Son, they hath NOT God.

Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God.   He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.  If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.  2 John 1:9-11

Those of us who abide in the doctrine of Christ have both the Father and the Son.

The scriptures go on further to say that we should NOT bring any false doctrines into our homes and those that listen and watch these false doctrines are guilty of their evil deeds

Most of what is on television is NOT the doctrine of Christ.

Most of what is on television is false doctrine

The scriptures tell us, that if we listen to false doctrine, doctrine that does NOT support Christ, listen to those people that do NOT believe in Jesus, we are as guilty as they are of their sin.

What is false doctrine on television?  What is evil?  What is unholy?

False doctrine is more that just preachers who promote themselves and their own doctrine instead of the word of God. 

False doctrine is anything contrary to the Gospel of Christ, the Doctrine of God, the Doctrine of Christ, which is the word of God.

Most television programs promote false doctrines that are contrary to the word of God.  Many television programs today promote lying, cheating, coveting, greed, idolatry, nakedness, swearing, murder, adultery, sin, blasphemy, wickedness, hatred, witchcraft, demonic worship, lustful, worldly sin.

We know through God's scriptures what is evil and unholy, what is unrighteousness, that we should not take part in by watching.  God says that if we view sin, watch sin that this is taking part in that sin, doing the same sin. 

Yes, God says that watching sin is committing the sin you are watching.

If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:  For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.  2 John 1:9-11

Did God know about television when He wrote these scriptures?   Yes, He sure did, God knows everything.   God knows everything that happened in the past, God knows everything that happens today in the present, and God knows everything that will happen in the future.  That's omnipotent, unlimited, and that's who God is, our God is omnipotent.

And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.  Revelation 19:6

The word of God reads that all sin, any sin is unrighteousness.  A little sin is still sin, sin is sin.

Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,  Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,  Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:  Romans 1:29-31

All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death. 1 John 5:17

So how can we live righteously?  It is simple, abide in Christ, focus on God.  God says that if we submit ourselves to HIM, resist the devil that the devil will depart from us.  All we need to do is resist the devil and God will do the rest.  Being tempted is not the sin, yielding to the temptation is sin.  God promises that if we submit ourselves to God and resist the devil, God promises that the devil will flee from us.

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  James 4:7

God is greater than the devil.  The devil didn't cast God out of Heaven, no, God cast the devil and his followers out of Heaven.

We know for a fact that God is greater than the devil, and as believer we are of God, if we abide in God, God promises to abide in us, and greater is God in us than he that is in the world.

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.  1 John 4:4

Because of Christ Jesus, we are able to overcome sin and death.  By the grace of God through faith in God, we are saved from sin and death.

As the children of the Most High God we are to live sinless, we are to live righteously like our Father, like our Lord Jesus Christ.

You may say, 'that's impossible, no one can live without sin', but that's NOT what God says.

We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.  And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.  1 John 5:18-19

As believers of Christ Jesus, we are kept by God away from sin.  When we live in obedience toward God, the devil can't touch us!

God is able to keep His own from sin.

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:   2 Corinthians 9:8

 


Is GOD without sin?

 

God of Truth and without sin

Because I will publish the name of the LORD: ascribe ye greatness unto our God. He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.  Deuteronomy 32:4

The just LORD is in the midst thereof; he will not do iniquity: every morning doth he bring his judgment to light, he faileth not; but the unjust knoweth no shame.  Zephaniah 3:5

Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O LORD God of truth.  Psalm 31:5

Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD: let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.  Psalm 40:11

For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.  Psalm 100:5

For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever. Praise ye the LORD.  Psalm 117:2

But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.  Psalm 86:15

Truth is very rare and hard to find in the world today. 

Everyone doesn't lie.  Who lies?  The devil and the devil's children.  People who do NOT follow the will of God.

The children of God are to be separate from the world, we are not to follow the ways of the world, we are to follow the ways of Christ. 

One way to follow Christ is to obey God's commandments, one of which is NOT TO LIE.

When we do NOT live in truth, do not abide in truth, we separate ourselves from God.  God will never leave us, but we can leave God.  God will never desert us or abandon us, but we can abandon God.  God will not force us to love Him.  God will not force us to obey Him.

Because God is truth, every lie that we tell separates us from God.

Telling a lie is obeying the devil, NOT God.  Lying is a choice.

When we choose to lie, instead of telling the truth, we decide NOT to obey God, and we decide to obey the devil.

When we choose to lie, instead of telling the truth, we choose to serve the devil, instead of serving God.

When we choose to lie, instead of telling the truth, we are willfully committing sin against God. 

When we choose to lie, we know we are breaking one of God's commandments, but we choose to lie anyway, in spite of what God commands.

When we choose to lie, instead of telling the truth, we choose to stand with satan, instead of standing with Christ Jesus.

 

Abiding in truth is standing with Christ.

There is no such thing as a 'little lie' with God.  God sees all lies the same, all lies are sin.  A 'little sin' is still sin in the eyes of God.

You may say, "but I tell the truth most of the time, so it is okay"That's NOT what God says in His word.

Truth is of utmost importance to God, and it should be most important to us also.  Truth is never casual with God.  Truth and telling the truth is an extremely serious matter with God.

God sacrificed His only begotten Son, so the world could have the truth given to them.  This was the ultimate sacrifice given by God for us.

 

We should never forget the price that was paid so that we could have the truth.

When we are tempted to lie, we should remember the sacrifice Jesus made for us on the cross, the humiliation, the pain, the sorrow, the blood that He shed for us, so that we could have the truth.

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.  John 14:6

Jesus is the truth.  As a child of God, as a follower of Christ, we should continually abide in the truth all the days of our lives.  We should have nothing to do with lies, because Jesus, the truth, lives and dwells within us.

There is no excuse, no reason that can validate any lie, but there is a extremely good reason why we should tell the truth, and that reason is Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour, our God.

As the children of God we should always live in truth, because Jesus is the truth.

When we fell the urge to lie about something, we must remember we are the temple of God, Christ dwells in us, and He is the truth.

I cannot follow Christ, walk with Jesus, live with God, if my life is full of lies.  I must follow truth, walk in truth, and live in truth.

 

No lie is worth the price that my Lord and Saviour paid for the truth.

So why do we lie?  Since the beginning of time, in the Garden of Eden, satan has deceived people to believe a lie, tell a lie, and live a lie, to leave the truth, and to leave God.

We lie because we are influenced by satan.

The children of God should only be influenced by Jesus.

By deceiving us to tell a lie, satan separates us from God.  The devil hates all humankind and his goal is to separate us from God and destroy all who love the only true God.

Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;  1 Corinthians 13:6

With a loving God, a tender merciful caring Lord and Saviour that we have, how can we not tell the truth in everything we do and say.

Only fear the LORD, and serve him in truth with all your heart; for consider how great things he hath done for you.  1 Samuel 12:24

It is better, if we cannot say the truth, to say nothing at all.

 

We must pray and ask God to lead us in truth.

Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.  Psalm 25:5

We must choose to walk in the truth, we must choose the way of truth.

I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid before me.  Psalm 119:30

Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:  Proverbs 3:3

Are the words of God written on your heart?  Has the Spirit of God written on the fleshly tables of your heart?

Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshly tables of the heart.  2 Corinthians 3:3
