THE DIVINE TRIUNE NATURE OF THE GODHEAD – PART 2 – THE TRINITY IN GENESIS 1
(Ver 1.2) Today’s Bible lesson is Part 2 in a series of very important studies concerning the described Triune nature of the Godhead. This lesson is a response to a reader who recently asked for more information on this essential subject. I had not written on this subject in ten years and it seems that it is time to revisit it. We can find God revealed and manifested in the Bible using three distinct titles. Two titles are direct family relationships and one is a completely spiritual name. These three titles are 1) God the Father, 2) God the Son and 3) God the Holy Spirit. There are a lot of people in the modern church that struggle and are challenged because of some things that they have heard from their church ministers about the Godhead. Some of these believe that God is a one indivisible deity. Some believe Jesus Christ is either just a human prophet or an angelic being and not God. Some believe the Holy Spirit is the True God and the Father is just another name for Him. It is interesting that the Bible describes that the antichrist will claim God never had a Son that came in the flesh (2 Jn 1:7). This helps us know that any confusion on this subject is demonically inspired to discount the existence of the Godhead and the Son of God. I wonder why Satan fights this so very much? I believe it is to keep everyone in doubt to not place our faith and confidence fully in His saving Grace. There are diverse numbers of erroneous beliefs based upon selective and unbalanced verses of the Bible. But when we observe all scriptures with a well balanced perspective, we must come to the conclusion that God is 3 manifested personalities at the same time.
We must all become Acts 17:11 “Berean” types of Christians. Paul praised these people of Berea as being more noble than others in the church because they listened to his teachings with an open mind and heart and then went to the scriptures to find out if what Paul taught was actually what the scriptures said. If people in Paul’s day needed to do this to a man who was the writer of 2/3 of the New Testament, how much more do you and I need to do this with every other Bible teacher and preacher that we read, listen to, watch live, see on TV, or on the internet?
Today’s subject is a continuation of the “Part 1” introduction with a very direct and special narrowed selection of the subject. We will be discussing the Trinity of God and how they are often found together in the Bible, specifically in one chapter. Please realize that God does not always directly name His individual titles of the Trinity like we might want Him to. Often God refers to Himself using synonymous different names or titles that mean the same thing and these will refer us to the same part of the Godhead, but in hidden or challenging ways. At other times one part of the Godhead can be implied as when God in heaven speaks and says “This is my beloved Son”. Obviously these were two manifested members of the Godhead that are being referred to in this one statement even if God does specify directly that it is the Father that was speaking. This is what I call God Hiding the Truth in Plain Sight. In other words, there is no obvious encryption that keeps us from knowing or understanding what is being stated, but there is some layered steps of implication that are required to be seen, in order to achieve the full knowledge and understanding. Let us get started with a quick introduction.
I will begin by teaching you a special fact that the LORD has shown me in scripture. The Trinity of God is a central theme found in the entire Bible. The Trinity of God is taught to us from the very beginning of Genesis 1 to the very ending of Revelation 22. In this lesson I will demonstrate how God does this. We will be focused upon Genesis 1:1 primarily but we will also see the Trinity briefly in Revelation 22. In addition we will go over verses in John that help us understand the bookend chapters.
Then I need to tell you this fact also. These three deity manifestations called the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and they do not have to be used in those direct named terms like I mentioned in the opening. You may not believe that God would do such a thing as making the Bible difficult to understand on purpose, but He does. How then are we supposed to see or find all of these references? The answer is through us being led by the Holy Spirit directly or by us learning how to see Him through teachings that God has taught others.
There are some people who just want to open up their Bibles and then ask God to show them every answer to all of their questions instantly and personally. God can and will do it this way if that is the limited little box that you want to put Him into, to force Him to answer the way you want and not allow Him to answer your question how He desires. I personally recommend that we stay open to any method that God wants us to learn from. I have learned a lot directly from the Holy Spirit, but I am also grateful for listening to new Bible teachers and preachers all the time. By doing this I see what the Lord is speaking to them. In this way I have learned to see how God gives others revelation that He has not given to anyone else that I have heard. I think that this is essential and it helps us to learn interdependent of others in the body of Christ. We can obviously see how this would be a very prideful attitude if we thought God could only speak to us personally.
We can study the Bible for 50 years and finally see the truth that God could have taught us in 60 minutes of reading or listening to someone that has already studied the Bible and been shown the answer to the question we desire to know. This is just called common sense and redeeming our time. Please take advantage of Bible Teachers. God has anointed and gifted certain men and women in the Church body to help us through these teaching gifts. You can clearly read this in Ephesians 4:11. Ok, that was just an encouragement to be open and save yourself a lot of time. But that still does not relieve you of proving everything that is taught to you by your own Bible study of the verses being presented. Right? Let us get into our subject of the Trinity.
THE TRINITY IN GENESIS 1
I will introduce you to how we need to shift our focus in order to see God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit in verses that do not directly name them together. For example, let us read just the first three verses of Genesis:
Gen 1:1 In the beginning (H7225) God (H430) created (H1254) (H853) the heaven (H8064) and the earth.(H776)
Gen 1:2 And the earth (H776) was (H1961) without form, (H8414) and void; (H922) and darkness (H2822) was upon (H5921) the face (H6440) of the deep. (H8415) And the Spirit (H7307) of God (H430) moved (H7363) upon (H5921) the face (H6440) of the waters. (H4325)
Gen 1:3 And God (H430) said, (H559) Let there be (H1961) light: (H216) and there was (H1961) light.(H216)
Whether you saw them or not, the Trinity was mentioned at least 3 times with God the Father being referred to three times, the Holy Spirit once and Jesus at least twice. I can hear a lot more people asking “WHAT?”. Let us start with the word “God”. It occurs once in each of the three verses. This is the Hebrew word H430 “Elohim” and it is a plural word. Uh oh? Could God be talking about Himself as a plural God who is potentially three manifestations in One True God? Yes, He is. This Hebrew word occurs in at least 2247 verses of the Old Testament. The majority of these, it is referring to God (capital G) and it is always in a plural form. This Hebrew word is the longer plural form of the words “El” or “Eloah”. This information should awaken you to look at this word in a new light from now on. In every one of the 2247 verse where this word occurs it is an indirect way of referring to the Trinity. That is a lot of verses, please go and read them all to see if I’m right if you like.
Now, God the Holy Spirit is a much more obvious direct reference in Genesis 1. Therefore, we will deal with Him first. In verse 2 you can clearly see how God described the earth to be formless and void with darkness covering the face of the deep. Next, God describes His Spirit to be “moving” upon the face of the waters. Ok, here we can begin to observe a clear and distinct separation being made between the God who created and sits in heaven above His creation and the manifestation of His Spirit being separately found present within His physical creation on the face of the earth. This is a direct reference of two manifestations of the same God.
Perhaps we missed verse 1 and this will clear things up a little more. In verse 1 God says “In beginning God (H430, Elohim) created the heaven and the earth”. Therefore, we understand the creator God was outside of His creation and the limited 4-dimensions of the natural heaven (stars and planets) and the physical earth that came into existence in verse 1. Now notice how in verse 2 God who is implied to still be in Heaven has revealed that His Spirit is moving upon the darkness that is covering the created Earth globe. We know from reading 1 John 1:5 that God is light. We also know from reading Revelation 22:5 that in the new heaven and the new earth to come, there will be no more night (darkness) because God will be the light for us all. What I see from this information is that we have two manifestations of God being spoken of in two different dimensions as separate identities of the same God. One manifestation of God is Him in His Glorious form sitting within the unlimited Spiritual Kingdom realm or the Kingdom of Heaven and the other manifestation is called the Spirit of God manifested and found within the limited physical domain of His creation. I find that very interesting to see how God is described as two manifestations in two locations. This will be a pattern that will be repeated in many other verses.
Now let us begin to look for the hidden Jesus in these verses. While the KJV Bible contains 10 English words in Genesis 1, these originate from six Hebrew words. Here is a quick list of these words:
|1||H7225||In the Beginning|
|4||H853||A-Z, Alpha Omega, Alef Tav (Untranslated in English)|
Ok, did you see Jesus the Son of God and God the Son of the trinity in these Hebrew words? If you have read the other Bible lessons on this website, you should already know that Jesus is the 4th untranslated Hebrew word found in Genesis 1:1. This fourth word is H853 and it consists of just two Hebrew letters which happen to be the first and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet. Jesus represents this hidden untranslated 2 letter reference. It is very obvious that translators did not understand what this word meant and just ignored it completely. That is a major issue. Let us look at another O.T. verse that helps us confirm who this word is referring to:
Zec 12:10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
Here we have another verse that describes Jesus precisely as a man that has been crucified on a cross. This verse describes the bodily piercings of the hands, feet and the wound in His side hanging on the cross in Gospels. Now notice what the translators did? They placed the word “me” where the Hebrew word H853 occurs. This “me” should read “the A-Z” whom they have pierced. I think this is a great confirmation that we are seeing Jesus in Genesis 1:1 very clearly now, but there is more evidence.
Remember Jesus called Himself the Alpha and Omega beginning in Revelation chapter 1. Four times in the book of Revelation Jesus claims to be the Alpha and the Omega. This claim is found in Revelation 1:8, 1:11, 21:6, and 22:13. Notice the last reference to Jesus being the Alpha and Omega occurs in the last chapter of the Bible. Also remember what I said earlier, the trinity is found in the first chapter and the last chapter and many, many other places in between. Please, remember this for it is important to know.
If we translate these Revelation references of Alpha and Omega in the New Testament into the Hebrew alphabet, Jesus would have said “I am the Alef and the Tav”. And if we translate the Old Testament Hebrew word “Alef & Tav” into Greek it would be “Alpha and Omega” and “A and Z” in English. What we learn from this is that Jesus is claiming to be this God in Genesis that created the heaven and the earth. Now let me challenge you with a new thought. This untranslated Hebrew word “Alef and Tav” occurs over 7000 times in the Hebrew text, in over 5000 verses. Could Jesus be found in all of these referenced verses? I believe according to John 5:39 where Jesus was speaking to the Jewish people and He told them to search the scriptures because these were what testified about Him, we can find Him almost everywhere. I mean that is a radical claim in light of we just learned about Jesus claiming to be this “Alef and Tav” in the book of Revelation 4 times.
This two letter Alef and Tav Hebrew word is the fourth word in the original Hebrew text and it is normally untranslated in the KJV English Bible (Genesis 1:1). It is joined with “Elohim” (God) and “Created”. Genesis 1:1 should read in English “In Beginning the God Alef-Tav created the heavens and the earth”. It is interesting to note that the Alef represents the beginning and the letter Tav represents the end. This concept would also apply the Greek Alpha meaning the “beginning” and the Greek Omega meaning the “ending”. Jesus makes this declaring in Revelation 1:8, 21:6 and 22:13. Wow, this confirms that Jesus was present in Genesis 1 the beginning and will be present in Revelation 22 the ending.
This may present a new potential problem for new Bible students. As we know, Jesus was not born on the physical earth until 4000 years after Adam committed treason and gave the world to Satan to rule. How do we resolve a New Testament Alpha and Omega Son of God Bible contradiction with the Old Testament God being the Alef-Tav in Genesis 1:1?. That is a great question and here is the starting point to discover the answer:
Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
Joh 1:3 All things were made by him (the Word); and without him was not any thing made that was made.
Joh 1:4 In him (the Word) was life; and the life was the light of men.
Joh 1:14 And the Word (God) was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
These verses are a divine commentary on Genesis 1 and the account of creation. God declares “Everything was made by the Spoken Word of God and these Words were the same as God”. Uh oh? What did He say? Here again we have two manifestations of the same God. One is called God and the other is called His Word. We should have been introduced to this concept in the first lesson of the series. God is declaring that we cannot separate our God who created our world from His Word. Also, we cannot separate His Word from our creator God because they both created the heavens and the earth working together in the beginning. I think a lot of people may be confused, so let us go over some new thoughts of what a trinity represents using a substance that was created in our natural realm. Let us look at verse in Revelation 22 to help us see this connection and comparison:
Rev 22:1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
I like to think of the divine Trinity to be like the concept of His created substance of “water”. Notice two parts of the Trinity of God are directly named in this verse. One is called God and the other is called the Lamb (Jesus Christ the Son). We learn the Lamb of God is Jesus by reading John 1:29. Notice how in Revelation 22:1, both God and the Lamb are found present on the throne in heaven. Now notice a river that flows from them both. It is called a flowing that proceeds from the throne and this water is pure meaning Holy and it produces life. We have just seen a direct connection to Water and God and 2 of the members of the Trinity of God. So let us briefly analyze created water next.
Water is described in Chemical terms as H2O. Each water molecule is comprised of 3 atoms. Two atoms of Hydrogen and one atom of Oxygen. Wow, do you think this is an accident that there are exactly THREE atoms that comprises ONE substance molecule named “water”? Why are there two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom? It is interesting to note that oxygen is absolutely essential for all human life on earth. Without this element of oxygen on earth humans would not be here. Therefore, this single element of Oxygen represents a life force like the water flowing from the throne of God. This oxygen substance appears to represent the Holy Spirit. I say this, because without the Holy Spirit on the inside of us, we are spiritually dead (lifeless). Now hydrogen is a colorless, odorless unobservable gas and I can see how these two atoms in water could represent a type of the Father and the Son working together with the Holy Spirit oxygen type of element to give us water, another essential element for human life on earth. This would also appear to correspond with the verse in Revelation 22:1 that we just read where two named representations of God are equally sitting on the Highest throne with life flowing out of them to us.
I do not believe water evolved to exist for one of our life sources and supply of refreshing drinkable liquid. I believe in a higher Intelligent Designer and Creator of our world that put oxygen and water here on purpose to give us life. I do not believe that these three atoms being combined in this order to be just an accident of evolution either.
Now consider these facts about the substance of water. H2O on the earth exists in three distinct and separate manifestations. The most abundant basic substance of H2O is named “water” on our planet and it is a clear liquid at normal room temperature. Second, there is frozen water named “ice” that is a solid manifestation of the liquid substance when it reaches the temperature of 0 degrees Celsius or 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Third, there is water that can manifest as a substance named steam or vapor which is water that is heated to 100 degrees Celsius or 212 degrees Fahrenheit. These three named manifestations are all of the exact same substance known as water and comprised of our three atoms H2O. How can one substance called water be seen as three such different manifestations? This is the way God is presenting Himself in the Bible. Does this information help you to see God in the Bible clearer and more understandable now? I pray it does.
Based upon what we have learned from John 1, we can now begin to see Jesus with more clarity in the rest of the chapter of Genesis 1. Every time in Genesis 1 where it says “And God said”, God is speaking His Word (vocal Jesus) that came from His mouth and this was with God and was God and it is the exact same as what became flesh to be manifested Jesus being born in a manger, living on the earth and dying on the cross. This is essential information for our salvation. If we do not know, understand or believe that Jesus was God on the earth that paid the price for our sins then I really do not see how we can be saved. Let us look at another good verse that goes along with Genesis 1 and our discussion of the Triune nature of our God:
Joh 6:63 It is the Spirit that quickeneth (gives life); the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are life.
In this verse we can see two directly named members of the Trinity being spoken of and the words that are spoken are radical beyond our full human mind’s comprehension. Jesus the Son of God is the one doing the speaking to the people in this verse therefore this is the Son of God talking. He begins by speaking and declaring a statement about the Holy Spirit as if He is not directly “Him” or as if “They” are separate. Jesus said “It is He who is named God’s “Spirit” that gives all Life”. Doesn’t this match with the river flowing from the throne? This description also parallels the words that we just read in John 1:4 where John wrote of God being the one that contained all life. This verse stated in the KJV “In Him (God and the Word) was life”. Then apply or compare this to what we just heard Jesus say from His own lips. “My spoken words are Spirit and they are Life”. Wow, if you are not getting what is being said here, you are missing some very major truths. It appears that we have just come across God the Father, God the Son and the God the Holy Spirit all being equal life sources.
Jesus in these spoken Words was declaring that He was the God of Creation and He who created Life was in Him simultaneously. It should become more obvious to us that Jesus was claiming to be God the Creator and that God the Creator was also on the inside of Him speaking of God’s Spirit Words of Life being spoken to anyone that would listen to His words. This is all confirmed by other words that Jesus spoke to us in John 10:38 where He claimed “His Father was in Him and that He was in His Father”. Wow again, we have just found in scripture that Jesus claimed to be God and that God claimed to be Him and both spoke Their Spirit words that create Life. There again is the trinity of God, ALL working together in complete harmony as separate but totally equal participants in the creation of our world. There is so much more that could be taught here, but we will move on and go back to Genesis 1 to wrap this lesson up.
I counted 10 times in Genesis 1 where it is written “God said” and then something happened. Almost every instance of divinely spoken words produce life or items that are necessary to sustain life. I believe we have learned that whenever God spoke, He declared Spirit Words that caused something living to manifest in the natural realm. It is also interesting that in the KJV Bible that they chose to make God plural when God said “Let US make man in our image and after our likeness”. I believe this was a very accurate translations based upon God using the plural form of His name “Elohim” in this chapter exclusively.
You see humans are a triune being also. We fit the pattern of our creator in many ways. 1 Thessalonians 5:23 the Holy Spirit inspired Paul to write about humans as being a 1) spirit, 2 that has a soul, and 3) living in a physical body. I like to say it this way, “We are not humans having a spiritual experience but rather we are spirits having a temporary human experience” in order to prepare us to be with Him or determine our eternal destiny away from Him. Being with Him or eternally separated from Him will be our spiritual choice. I hope and pray you have already made that choice to belong to His family by being born-again. If not, you can go to the menu at the top of the website and select “Salvation” and follow the instructions, believe, confess, pray and then leave us a comment to testify about your great decision. Jesus said in Matthew 10:32 “whoever confesses me before men, them will I confess before my Father”. Do you see the trinity in that verse? They are all there! We have the Son confessing your name to His Father and Jesus’ words of declaration will provide you with Spirit Life status and the Holy Spirit will come to indwell you in your spirit. What a great choice you have made. Tell everyone you know what God has done for you.
I pray that you have a better understanding of how one God can be named and manifested in three different forms but still be the One True God. We have been introduced to the Trinity in Genesis using verses from the book Revelation and the Book of John. We did this to learn how the Trinity is revealed and defined in multiple settings and learn how they compliment each other so that we can see their unity working together in creation. You should have seen in Genesis 1 God was creating life. He accomplished this by speaking His (Spirit) Word while His Holy Spirit hovered over the earth. We learned from John1 that Jesus was this same Spoken Word that became flesh (natural life) and He walked on the face of the earth among us. I find this truth so amazing.
This has only been “Part 2” in the series and I pray that it was well received and understood. I pray that you will also go and look up all these Bible verses and Greek and Hebrew words for yourself to prove that they are really what is found in the Bible. This will help you a lot to learn how to study the Bible for yourself. One of the primary goals for this website is to teach you how to fish for God’s truth in the Word, rather than to give you a one-time fast food snack of His truth for a day.
Thank you and God bless you very much for reading and studying the Words of the Living God with us at Agapegeek.Com. I am always so blessed to have the privilege to share what the Holy Spirit has taught me in the Bible to anyone that wants to learn about God, Jesus or the Holy Spirit. If you were blessed by this, please share it with all of your friends and relatives to help us get the Gospel of Jesus Christ out to a world that needs Him desperately. Pressing “Like” will help people find us also. Leaving comments will help people find us and provide us with important feedback.
In the next lesson, (the Lord willing) we will go over some other great Bible verses about the triune nature and makeup of the Godhead. There are literally so many verses that are available in the Bible to teach about this subject, that we will need to focus in on only a few that are the best examples. I look forward to teaching this subject again soon. I hope it was a blessing to you and that you gained some insight that was a new and fresh perspective about our very Loving and Gracious God. If you need prayer for any reason, please leave a comment and we will add you to our prayer list. God Bless you!
~ TECH NOTE ~
Finally, big technology companies have begun to censor and silence the truth. The limitations of search engine de-prioritization, shadow banning and just out and out censorship is a demonic attempt to keep the Gospel from being spread. This is why I recommend to you and to everyone that you know to get off of these platforms and stop helping them to make money from your participation. All people are to them is a product or commodity to control so that they are able to use you and sell you to advertisers. I strongly recommend as a “Geek” type of Christian computer nerd that you try “DuckDuckGo” for your only internet search engine and app, Download and try “Parler” instead of Twitter, Download and try “Rumble” instead of YouTube. Also, download and try “MeWe” instead of Facebook. These new technologies are getting stronger and able to grow as more people get on their platforms. There are many ministries that are moving to “Rumble” because Youtube has deleted their conservative videos and voices. All of these companies that I recommended are currently freedom-of-speech based apps that will not censor a message of God, Jesus or the Bible or even just basic conservative morality and truth. Please consider this move and take a stand against the evil that is trying to silence the voice of the Church.
Merry and Blessed Christmas 2020!
(Ver 1.0) Merry Christmas 2020 and a Blessed coming Victorious Happy New Year 2021. Many of us celebrate the entrance into the world of the Lord Jesus Christ on December 25th. We have selected this day to honor the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Without His birth, there could have never been His death on a cross. For this reason, He came into the world to save us from our sin penalty of eternal death. We should be eternally grateful to Him for this gift.
2Co 9:15 Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!
Everyone loves to receive gifts. But God gave to us all, the ultimate gift. What a great indescribable GIFT Jesus was to you and I. He is the gift that never ends. We like to give people gifts in this world but they are such temporary happiness. What was a WOW type of gift right NOW will become passing OLD gift of yesterday and probably end up in the garbage soon. Have you ever received a new smart phone, tablet, computer or something else and think this was the best gift every and so great? Then in 1 or 2 years there comes out a newer version that blows that old model away and you have to have that new one? Jesus is NOT like a new gadget or electronic device. He comes to live on the inside of us and if we allow Him to, He can just get better and better as we learn to know more about Him. Wow, Wow and WOW! I pray you know what I mean.
Give thanks to Jesus for what He has given to you today. Be a blessing to your family, to your friends and those that you see today and every day. Acknowledge and thank HIM for the LOVE that He has given to you. Then let His LOVE on the inside of you shine to ALL those that you encounter by being led by the HIS Spirt.
Thank you, to all of my readers, subscribers, friends and all those in family of the LORD JESUS CHRIST! Have a very blessed and Merry Christmas and a very Prosperous New Year. God bless you and keep you. I love you and God loves you and if God is for us who then can be against us. Our continued prayers will be for you to continue to grow and know Jesus better today than you did yesterday. 2021 will be a great year of victory and rejoicing. Expect it!
GOD GETS ALL OF THE GLORY! HE IS LOOKING FOR A BELIEVING 300!
(Ver 1.1) I was not gong to post any more about the United States election. However, I believe with all of my heart that God is not finished yet and is waiting to see who will stand with Him in faith, patiently expecting Him to fulfill what the church of Jesus Christ has prayed. I know it looks really bad like the evil has won. It looks like we are against an overpowering enemy that has defeated us. But this is when God works best and our God is still doing some amazing things in these last days, even if it does not always seem that way to our human viewpoint based upon circumstances. Has God ever really done that before? Read your Bible and tell me a story where God answered a problem in the way that a human wanted Him to answer it or when they wanted Him to answer it?
God is very gracious and kind, but His love is also balanced with the need for our faith’s participation to receive His free Grace heavenly provisions. We are never to tell God how or when He should answer our prayers. That is not our choice. We just know that God will answer and many times it will be at the last second before we think the world is about to end and Satan is about to win. Remember God is faithful (Deu 7:9) and He will always answer believing prayers(Mk 11:24), so let’s believe, stand (Eph 6:13) and fight a good fight of faith (1 Tim 6:12) until we see the answer. Because it will be our faith that will give us the victory to overcome Satan and the evil world (1 Jn 5:4).
If God would have answered our prayers immediately, the way we all thought He would on election day, November 3, 2020, we would not have seen all the works and plans of the devil. We would also not have seen how Satan overplayed his hand of cards to expose himself. This delay by God was an exceedingly wise plan but it looks like a very foolish plan to the carnal human mind. Watch and see God continue to work and see what He is desiring to accomplish in the world and simultaneously in the church.
If God would have answered our prayer on election day, He would not have been able to expose all of the crime, evil, corruption and fraud in our government, politicians and the election processes. God would not have been able to expose the lengths that Satan was able to overreach to use evil people to try to steal all of the votes for our President to get him out of office. God would not have been able to expose the Jezebel false prophets in the media as being such corrupt liars. These are people being used by demons to prophesy lies of propaganda to attempt to brain wash the American people and the world to cause us to get into fear. God would not have been able to expose the corrupt Tech-companies that have been used by Satan on a mission to silence the truth of the righteous people on the earth.
WILL GOD GET THE GLORY OR MAN?
Now that brings me to today’s main topic. God would not have been able to get all of the Glory for re-electing the President, if He had won the election in a landslide without the criminal fraud, foreign interference and all of the hidden activity taking place in the collusion under the disguise of hidden darkness. Our President could have claimed that it was him, his personality, his accomplishments, his fame or fortune, etc. that gave him the election results of victory. But those that know God realize that it is only God that put him into office in 2016 because of prayers and it will only be God that gets him back into office in 2020 because of faithful prayers. Yes, God heard our prayers and God answered our prayers to save human lives. I still believe that 100%. I am not moved by what is going on in the news. In fact I don’t watch fake news anymore. But God’s answer was not done immediately as we expected and this is causing a lot of people who call themselves Christians to not stand with God anymore agreeing with the evil report of the 10 spies that said “we are not able to take the land because we are just grasshoppers”.
Now that brings us to topic number two about a faithful remnant with faith that did get the victory even if the majority failed to enter into it. Remember the two spies with the good report “we are well able to overcome this enemy so let us go up and take it now” had to experience a delay of 40 years because of all of the unbelief. yet they still got the victory. Ok, I’m not saying we must wait 40 years to see the victory. I’m not even saying we have to wait another 4 years. No, I’m saying there will be a delay but victory will take place sooner than you think. Let us go and read another story that shows us what is happening in this delay period.
ARE YOU ONE OF GOD’S 300?
This is one of the main messages that God spoke to me this morning. In the book of Judges chapter 7 we will find a man named Gideon. This man had an army of 32,000 soldiers. This army seemed big enough to defeat the enemy quickly with no problems. But God told Gideon it was too many and they would think they got the victory without the need of Him. That is how it would have been if the landslide for our President took place on Nov 3 without any crimes being committed. But God told Gideon to gather the army and ask them “whoever is fearful and afraid depart and go home” in verse 3. That left 10,000 soldiers. Those that left the army were never in faith and they represent Christians that have already admitted defeat or are afraid of what might happen if God does not answer our prayers. These are usually types of Christians that know very little about the Word of God. We will see why I said this next.
10,000 soldiers were still too many for God and God told Gideon to take all of them down to the water. Water usually represents the Word of God in the Bible. For example, Jesus told the disciples now you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you (Jn 15:3). To a woman at the well Jesus said “If you knew who it was that spoke with you, you would ask of me a drink, I would give to you living water…” (Jn 4:10). And I could give you other examples. The men that never came to the water going home did not get to come to the Word of God. But the 10,000 men of Gideon that remained were instructed to come to the water and drink. God said to Gideon that He would “try” them there. That Hebrew (H6886) word literally means to refine/melt metal. I think you may have heard that in the New Testament regarding our faith being tried by fire in 1 Peter 1:7. Our faith is being tested and we are in need to remain bold and courageous.
In Judges 7, God was showing there was a special way that the qualified must drink. Those that lapped the water like a dog were accepted for the battle. How does a dog drink water? They are always on their feet. They use their tongue as a scoop to bring the water up into their mouth. But there were those that drank laying on the ground which required them to get on their knees first and then lay down on the ground to reach their mouths to the water like a snake. These people were rejected. The Hebrew word translated as “bowed down” (H3776) in verse 6 means they needed to be prostrate on the ground in a laying position with their face down to reach the water. These were the ones that disqualified for battle. There were only 300 men that used their hand to scoop the water with their heads up, feet on the ground looking alertly for the enemy that were approved by God for battle (v6).
Wow, I hope you saw the typology in this example. Those that lapped water like a dog were prepared for a surprise attack of the enemy. These were the 300 that had wisdom to stay alert, aware and were ready for the fight of faith no matter if it happened at that moment or many days later. They were ready no matter if there was a delay or the fight was now. This is the type of Christian that God is hoping we are. He is calling out a people that are ready at every moment and remain in faith no matter how long it takes to achieve the victory. We must be prepared because the enemy can surprise us at any unexpected moment.
Did you notice what type of Christian did not go to battle and get the victory? These were people that were worldly and acted like a snake laying on their belly on the ground unaware. It is virtually impossible for a human drinking on their belly to see what is happening around them and they can easily be surprised and killed by a sly predator. A Christian with one foot in the world and one foot in church is not going to be able to stand with God. God wants someone who spiritually alert and aware and is fully committed to Him. These are too many Christians that are trying to please the world to not offend them with the truth, while going to church to try and make God happy. Jesus said to the church in Revelation 3:15-16, “I would that you be hot or cold, because you are lukewarm, I will spew you out of my mouth”. Wow, that is a very strong warning.
This election delay is causing a lot of Christians to depart from their faith and become joined with Satan and his world agenda. Christian have been sitting on a fence with one foot in the world’s party system and one foot in the Kingdom of God party on Sunday and this is still unacceptable to God. God desires a victorious church (Rom 8:37), but first, He is returning to the earth to see if there is anyone that still has the faith to receive the victory (Lk 18:8). Remember God eliminated the fearful and those that were afraid from Gideon’s army FIRST! These were people with NO faith in Him. Then God got rid of the carnal worldly people that wanted life in the world with a future hope of going to heaven with His victory too. These were types of people that were double minded and easily swayed between two opinions. But only the faithful that believed God and were constantly alert, aware, believing, and faithful were the soldiers that received the victory of God.
Which one of the Christian types are you? Do you believe God is still “ABLE” to give us the victory? Do you believe God “Will” give us the victory even if it looks like we are totally outnumbered and about to get slaughtered with only our 300-soldier army? God is giving everyone that says they are a Christian a chance to choose right now. Whose report will you believe? Will you believe the report of the Jezebel false lying prophet media? Or will you believe and stand with the God that is able to do exceedingly and abundantly more than we can ask or think (Eph 3:20)? God is still God! God still rules! God is still for Life (Jn 10:10)! God is not a liar (Num 23:19).
I’m standing with God no matter what happens or how long it takes to win the spiritual battle. Just like the Hebrew children in Babylon in the book of Daniel, when the king told everyone to bow or burn. They said to the king “Our God is able and will deliver us and even if He does not we will not bow”. This is what God is looking for today. I would rather die in faith without receiving the promised answer rather than to bow and allow death to take another innocent life from the womb.
If this strong message offends you, that is very sad and heartbreaking to God and myself. But please take your negative comments somewhere else! You are free to go and bow to the false gods of Baal in the world and join them in their slaughter and sacrifice of innocent babies. My God will deliver us, some us will believe and have faith no matter what the world says. IT IS TIME TO KEEP STANDING! God has already started the exposure of the massive crimes that were committed in this election. Justice is coming as God the Supreme Judge in heaven has already ruled in our favor. All we do now is stand and praise Him for the victory! Thank you Jesus! Please rise up and continue to stand with God. There are more in the spiritual realm that are for us than there are against us. God bless you. I love you and God loves you. He has given to us the victory and He receives all of the glory. Be one of God’s 300!
