Knowing God

God is the alpha and the omega,
The beginning and the end.
Which means no beginning and no end.
Put that in your brain and think about it !

God in three persons,
God the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit.
Know one has seen God the Father, He is Spirit,
For His brilliance would kill you !

Jesus His Son is the second person
With two natures, Son of God and Man.
The Holy Spirit is the third Person
God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - the Holy Trinity.

Jesus never claimed to be God.
He was sent on a mission to do God's will,
To die on a cross for the sins of the world,
Which includes you and me.

But Jesus conquered death
By living again
And because of that
We can also live with Him for ever !.

Our outer shell like a seed
Must die in order for the seed to grow and live
From dust to dust and than what ?
Our inner man, our soul lives on !

Faith in God is the answer.
It is the gift of God lest any man should boast.
Faith without works is dead,
If you don't tell anybody about Jesus, you don't know Him either !

Don't live for just yourself only,
Tell the Good News.
God works through us to do this.
Reaping souls is worth more than all the gold !

So there is one God, existing in three persons,
The persons are distinct.
They are equally God,
God's nature is infinite, no subtracting or adding.

And someday He is coming back again
To claim His own to live with Him forever.
Will you be there ?
Or left behind, either one or the other !

If you don't yearn to know God more and more
You don't know Him !
John 3 : 16
