What do we live by?


Think hard this! Have you ever seen God?

We have had peeks into the spiritual. God Loves, for God is Love, Amen. You cannot be any other person/being can you?

Understandably, yesteryear God had regrets over what He had made. Word? Let me start it all over again – The flood!

Now, why didn’t Man live right? Even after the flood? We can take a brief look

Definitely read the above, it saves time and explains so very much! Ice age? It really is explained, we can see proof? Tower of Babel? Man staying together! Ever wondered where languages come from? Race? We have some clues!

But, to be specific in our everyday lives, we realize that:

“Faith comes from hearing, and hearing through The Word of Christ.”

– Romans 10:17

What is faith?

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

Hebrews 11:1

Faith comes from hearing, and hearing through The Word of Christ

Is Jesus God?

We end up in a familiar place!

“Prove it?”, “You’ve got the wool pulled over your eyes!”, “What will you believe in next?”, “When you fly, I’ll believe it ”

I am aware that we provide different schools of thought. For some reason I was touched to share this. Everything, occurs for a reason. Mind you! I did NOT say all things take place for a reason! Remember, Man has choice!

Many Christian churches and denominations have different views on free will. While it’s easy to become confused on how God’s control and our own free will interact, we can trust the Word of God and know that what He has told us in the Bible is true. These Bible verses about free will show us that we have the ability to choose and have faith in God, being secure in our eternal life in heaven, or we can choose to turn from God and live apart from Him. Use these Scriptures to help you make wise choices!

No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

1 Corinthians 10:13

Where is this Word? Anyone ever heard The Voice of God?

Yes, Moses spoke with God! How?

If Moses met face to face with God, why, later, was he not allowed to see God’s face?

Before the official tabernacle was built, “Moses used to take a tent and pitch it outside the camp some distance away, calling it the ‘tent of meeting.’ Anyone inquiring of the Lord would go to the tent of meeting outside the camp” (Exodus 33:7). As Moses visited this tent of meeting to intercede for the people of Israel, “the pillar of cloud would come down and stay at the entrance, while the Lord spoke with Moses” (verse 9). Moses’ position of favor with God is evident in the fact that “the Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend” (verse 11).
However, later in the same chapter, Moses requests to see God’s glory, and God replies, “I will cause all my goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the Lord, in your presence. . . . But . . . you cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live” (Exodus 33:19–20). To protect Moses, God put him “in a cleft in the rock” and covered him with His hand as He passed by (verse 22). “Then,” God promised, “I will remove my hand and you will see my back; but my face must not be seen” (verse 23).
This passage prompts several questions. Does God really have a “hand,” “face,” and “back”? Why could Moses speak to God “face to face” in verse 11 but could not see God’s “face” in verse 23? What is fatal about seeing God’s “face”?
We know from Scripture (e.g., John 4:24) that God is spirit. Spirits do not possess physicality. So, when Moses spoke “face to face” with God in Exodus 33:11, there are only two possible ways to understand it: either Moses was speaking to the pre-incarnate Son of God (a Christophany); or the passage is using a figure of speech called anthropomorphism, in which human qualities are applied to God. While a Christophany is certainly possible, it is probably better to view the chapter as using figures of speech. The terms face, hand, and back in Exodus 33 should not be taken literally, and face to face, being idiomatic, is also metaphorical.
In verse 11 the idiom face to face can be simply understood to mean “intimately.” Moses spoke with God familiarly, as a man speaks to a friend. In verses 20 and 23, face and back are in reference to God’s “glory” and “goodness” (verses 18–19). Since God is spirit, and since glory and goodness are both intangibles, we can take face and back to signify varying “degrees” of glory. God’s hand (verse 22) is an obvious reference to God’s “protection.”
In the Bible, God often communicates using terms easily understood in the human experience. God’s use of anthropomorphism in Exodus 33 was a perfect way to describe what was happening. As humans, we know the importance of one’s face. To readily identify someone, we study his or her face. It is also the face of a person that reveals the most information about his or her character, mood, and personality. However, if all we catch is a glimpse of a person from behind, we are left without a lot of valuable information. It is difficult to identify a person from behind; we know very little about a person if all we can see is a back view.
When God told Moses, “You cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live” (Exodus 33:20), He was saying that truly seeing God as He is, in the fullness of His glory, is more than mortal man can tolerate (cf. Isaiah 6:5). Therefore, to protect Moses, God was only going to reveal that portion of His majesty and power that was humanly possible to absorb. God communicated this plan to Moses in a way we can all understand: “You cannot look Me full in the face [it is impossible for you to know everything about Me], but I will allow you to see my back [I will reveal to you a small portion of My nature so as not to overwhelm you].”
All of this makes Jesus’ words to Philip all the more amazing: “Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father” (John 14:9). When Jesus walked this earth, His glory veiled, we could look Him in the face. “In Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form” (Colossians 2:9). On one brief occasion, Jesus’ glory was revealed in this world, at the transfiguration(Matthew 17:2). Interestingly, Moses was there, speaking to the glorified Lord, face to face (Matthew 17:3).

In no place does it say “In the physical.” We speak with God, for His Spirit is within us!

We cry, weep, mourn, hurt…in what language? Ever heard “I cannot put it to words”?

What can you put it to though? What occured was a reality, what you feel is in your existence! What can you put it to?

Do/Can we speak another language?🤔

Again, Faith comes by hearing, and hearing through The Word of God!

Are you deaf?

I gotta ask. Are you listening? Have you ever listened? Heard The Word of God?

🤔Makes you think!

Don’t do that because/or/then… Where did that come from?

You knew it, but then did it! Regret/shame/disappointment/pain…?

Once, I read novels almost nonstop, the power of Words? Delicious, tantalizing…are they alive? Can you taste them?

This opens a whole new can of beans… Word!

/ɡäd/

noun
  1. (in Christianity and other monotheistic religions) the creator and ruler of the universe and source of all moral authority; the supreme being.
  • (in certain other religions) a superhuman being or spirit worshiped as having power over nature or human fortunes; a de

    The expression “the word of God” usually refers to a divine message or to a collection of those messages. (Luke 11:28) In a few places, “The Word of God” or “the Word” is used as a personal title.—Revelation 19:13; John 1:14.

    A divine message. The prophets often stated that the messages they delivered were God’s word. For example, Jeremiah introduced his prophetic messages with the expression “the word of Jehovah came to me.” (Jeremiah 1:4, 11, 13; 2:1) Before telling Saul that God had chosen him as king, the prophet Samuel said: “Stand still now, so that I may let you hear the word of God.”—1 Samuel 9:27.

    A personal title. “The Word” also appears in the Bible as a title for Jesus Christ, both as a spirit in heaven and as a human on earth. Consider some reasons for this conclusion:

    • The Word lived before all other creation. “In the beginning was the Word . . . This one was in the beginning with God.” (John 1:1, 2) Jesus is “the firstborn of all creation . . . He is before all other things.”—Colossians 1:13-15, 17.

    • The Word came to earth as a human. “The Word became flesh and resided among us.” (John 1:14) Christ Jesus “emptied himself and took a slave’s form and became human.”—Philippians 2:5-7.

    • The Word is God’s Son. After stating that “the Word became flesh,” as quoted above, the apostle John continued: “We had a view of his glory, a glory such as belongs to an only-begotten son from a father.” (John 1:14) John also wrote: “Jesus is God’s Son.”—1 John 4:15.

    • The Word possesses godlike attributes. “The Word was a god,” or “was divine.” (John 1:1; An American Translation) Jesus is “the reflection of God’s glory and the exact representation of his very being.”—Hebrews 1:2, 3.

    • The Word rules as a king. The Bible states that on the head of the Word of God are “many royal headbands.” (Revelation 19:12, 13; footnote) The Word is also named “King of kings and Lord of lords.” (Revelation 19:16) Jesus is called “the King of those who rule as kings and Lord of those who rule as lords.”—1 Timothy 6:14, 15.

    • The Word serves as God’s spokesman. The title “the Word” apparently identifies its bearer as one whom God uses to convey information and instructions. Jesus said that he performed this role: “The Father who sent me has himself given me a commandment about what to say and what to speak. . . . So whatever I speak, I speak just as the Father has told me.”—John 12:49, 50.
