Creating God in Our Imagine

God is too big for your little box.

"So what God to you believe it? The God of the Jews, Christians? What about the Muslim God? What about the God of the Mayans? What makes you think your God is any better than theirs? What makes your's the one to follow? The way I see it, God is whatever you believe God to be and all else is nonsense."

No. Not really. God IS. He, just like you, just is. You look the way you look. Your nature is the way it is. You are you. If someone comes to me and says something that you did or said, that is out of your Character, I will know that it was not you. Because someone else wants to form you into something you are not, does not change the fact, you are you.

I accept you for you. I believe in you. Others do as well. Does this make you "ours?" Nope. We just accept you as you are. Can you be "other's"? No. They can accept you for who you are, or they can change who you are into a lie. Either way, it in no way, changes you are you.

God is God.

Genesis 1:
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
He created all that is, was, or ever will be. Then He created us.
26 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.

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
We are created in God's own imagine. He is NOT created in ours. He created you.

Psalm 139:
12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.

13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.

14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
Really think on that for a second. You are you, because God said so. You are white, black, blonde, red headed, short, tall, male, female, whatever, because that is what God wrote in the Book of Life. God had a blue plan, if you will, for who you would be. He also set up a Destiny for you and your life.

Jeremiah 1:
4 Then the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,

5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

6 Then said I, Ah, Lord God! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child.

7 But the Lord said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak.

8 Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord.

9 Then the Lord put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the Lord said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth.

10 See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.
Just like Jeremiah, God knew who you were before you were born. He has a plan and a purpose for your life. It's out there for you to fulfill. Blessed are those who find it. Jesus was there at the beginning as well.

John 1:
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2 The same was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.

8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

14 And the Word 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.
That same Jesus, is now abiding in you, as a Child of God. Without this, you are none of His. It really is this simple. God created Man. Man reject God. God sent Prophets, gave Man Commandments. Man ignored the Commandments and killed the Prophets. God laid down His Godhead and came to earth to die for our Sins.

In this act, God opened up Salvation for ALL. Not a select few, but ALL. All you have to do is accept His Gift. Allow His blood to be your blood. His sacrifice to be your sacrifice. His death, yet rather Resurrection, to be your death and payment for your Sin. "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." {Romans 6:23}

It really is this simple. There is no other way. There is no other Truth. There is no other God. One God, one way, one 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}

Some become offended by this. As the Word tells us, this is done on purpose. Yup. On purpose. "But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God." But just because you may become offended, doesn't mean it not Truth.

However, because of this perceived offense, and because of the Pride of Man, we reject the Truth. We attempt to change the Truth to fit our desires. If you chose to believe in God, yet do not wish to believe He came to earth, then you accept some of The Word, but change the fact Jesus is God, to that He was simply a good Teacher. If you chose not to accept "Thou Shalt not Murder." You simply leave that out, or say it means something else. If you chose to accept The Word is true, but only for a time, then you are free to live as you will. Get the point?

But God cannot be fooled. He is the same yesterday, today, and forevermore, because He is "I am." He IS God. He sees every aspect of us. None of us can hind from Him. No matter how we chose to see Him, He does see us.

Hebrews 4:
12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
Just like God, The Word is absolute. It IS the final authority and answer to all things. It does not care if you accept it as such or not. It IS what it IS. God is who He is. Regardless of your acceptance, or point of view, or desire to be justified in your ways, God IS God. He is too big to fit in your little Box.

The problem come in when we attempt to lump being a Child of God, into Religion. When we start seeing being a follower of Christ, THE Christ, as nothing more than man-made Traditions, like all others, called Religion. Then we create confusion. Christianity has become a Religion in of itself, but was never meant to be. God wants a one on one relationship with you. He does not care if you are a good little {Insert Religion here}or not. This is why Jesus spoke out AGAINST Religion more than He ever did praise it. Paul gave this speech in Acts.

Acts 17:
22 Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.

23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, To The Unknown God. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.

24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

25 Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;

26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:

28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.

30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:

31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.
It was never intended for the Disciples of Jesus, to become like all other man. We are to be separate. We are to be Sowers of the Seed. Show-ers of the Way. Tellers of Truth. We are to live as Children of God. Not create a bunch of laws and rules and regulation which make those seeking The Truth burdened with the Traditions of Man.

God is the same God of all. Regardless of whatever Box you attempt to put Him in. There is only one way to find Him. There is only one way to accept His Gift. There is only one Way, Truth, and Life. His name is Jesus.

Do you know Jesus as your Savior? Have you been adopted into the Family of God? If not, say this Prayer. Right now. Wherever you may be. Say it in your own words, and do not doubt in your heart. God will hear you. He will send the Spirit of Life to you. Let us Pray..

"Oh heavenly Father, Lord God. I am a sinner. I know this. I know there is nothing I can do to change that. But I know you can. I accept Jesus's sacrifice for me. I repent my sins. Please send the Spirit of Adoption into my life. Help me to get to know the real you. Save me. Please. In the name of Jesus, Amen!"

That's it. It really is that simple. Now go tell someone what you have just done. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." {Romans 10:9} You need to find a Church that God leads you to, and be Baptized the way Jesus said to be. You are now a Child of God. A new Creature. You "have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him." {Colossians 3:10}

If you want to tell me, or comment, question, give testimonials, or just say "Hi," the Email is

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen. {2 Corinthians 13}
