The Bible Speak

The Bible speaks about the truth.

The Bible is unique because it gives us inspiration, hope, and our life. It is the only book explaining God is love, Jesus saves, and the Holy Spirit is in us. It is the only book that makes you feel that heaven is real and Hell is yet to be seen. If you cannot find heaven in the Word of God, then you are not there yet. You have the wrong book if you want to find Hell, where the wicked belongs. But if you believe in Hell, then you can have it. In the Old Testament, Hades and Sheol are not Hell; they mean the grave. In the New Testament, Jesus mentions Hell as Gehenna, a literal place in Israel known to this time as the valley of Hinnom in Jerusalem, and he was talking to the Israelites then.

To Peter, Hell is called Tartaroo, which is not for humans but a place reserved for angels who have sinned against God. You will not be able to find the word Hell to be accurate in that book, but if you want to feel it, you are in it now. Humanity doesn’t need to be made aware of Hell. We are all too aware of it already. When you do not care that you are hurting someone, it is okay as long as it doesn’t hurt you. When someone hurts you, and you do not want peace until you get even when someone hits you with gossip, and you hit them back and many more, that could be worse, but that is the way to declare living in Hell. When you sin, you invite Hell into your body, and when you enjoy life with holiness, you are in heaven. No one can stop you from making your Hell or your heaven. It is your choice. But the real thing will come into play at the end of our journey.

The mortal and immortal punishment is in the book. If we pray, it will be revealed to us. After these third parts of God’s love letter, God’s Will is soon to be fulfilled that His creation will be with Him. We need faith to spring hope, and without hope, faith will be missing its leg; it will not stand by itself, and sometimes, if not most of the times, we need a powerful hope that will bear love and grow within us and let the flow of the Holy Spirit run thru our body, it is not only a blessing to us, it could also give blessings to others. The gift of the Holy Spirit will do wonders; do not let it stay inside you. We have to learn to share it, and it will grow much more so we can share more. The more we share, the more we get back. God said He would bless those who bless you; in other words, if you bless others, God will bless you.

The gospel of Matthew, Mark, and Luke, who wrote about the life and death of Jesus, identified Jesus as a king, Servant, and a Man who is flesh aside from John, who wrote that Jesus is God or could also be a misinterpretation of those early church fathers that claimed that the word in John 1 is Jesus. Many comments are made that the author manipulates the whole chapter 2 of the gospel of John. If Jesus is merely a prophet, a healer, or a messenger of God, then worshiping Jesus would not be appropriate. Remember that The LORD is a jealous God and will not give His glory to another, and He is the “I AM” and the only God and no one else besides Him, which is His word.

As believers of the good news of Jesus Christ, we believe in the only true God—our Creator, our Redeemer, Father, Comforter, Teacher, and Guide. He is Almighty God (Deuteronomy 6:4). The Bible tells us that God is three manifestations in one (Trinity): Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are members of the Godhead. The Trinity cannot be comprehended with the natural mind but must be received by faith (1 John 5:7). We worship one God who is manifested as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and are all Spirit. The first person is singular, meaning one, and the second is singular. Still, the third persons are plural, which gives us something to feel very happy about because it involves many persons. Are we part of it? Can we be a part of it? God knows!
