In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day. And God said, “Let there be a vault between the waters to separate water from water.”So God made the vault and separated the water under the vault from the water above it. And it was so.God called the vault “sky.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the second day. And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so. God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.” And God saw that it was good.Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so.The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.And there was evening, and there was morning—the third day. And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth.” And it was so. God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. God set them in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth, to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:1-21 (and the rest)
God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? Numbers 23:19 NIV
For God is not a God of disorder but of peace—as in all the congregations of the Lord’s people. 1 Corinthians 14:23 NIV
God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them. Hebrews 6:10 NIV
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. John 4:24
In the beginning, God created all that was ever created and without Him, nothing was created. He created–took nothing and made something out of it. Man “invents” using what already is to change it into something else. God is not a man that He should lie, Man lies. God is not the author of confusion and chaos–Man is. God is not unjust–Man is fickle and justice is not equal for all when man makes decisions. All of God’s promises are, “Yes and Amen.” Man’s promises waffle betwixt and between roller coaster emotions and constantly changing societal acceptances.
There is a difference between the God of Heaven and the god of this world for the god of this world–the arch enemy of God– has created nothing but chaos and confusion in the minds of the weak and gullible.
When we know how God functions–from the beginning to this very moment–we know without doubt that He would not “choose” absurdity over wisdom and knowledge. “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”Proverbs 1:7 “Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or turn away from them. Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. Cherish her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you.” Proverbs 4:5-8 NIV God creates, Satan destroys!
Until the gullible cease to say, “God chose Trump to be president” or “God elected him,” I will continue to dispute it with everything in me, according to The Word of God.
God–not human–has no need for those things humans involve themselves–like “elections.” When the Children of Israel cried for a king, God allowed them to choose–though He spoke to prophet-Samuel and had Samuel anoint David–the people still had to choose. And when we look at the history of the kings who ruled–sometimes those choices were not good ones and the kings were evil and committed all sorts of debauchery and wickedness.
As stated before and is being stated by many–this futile rhetoric about God choosing Trump–is driving more people away from God and church than drawing them to God. God doesn’t have a problem with us making mistakes, but when we don’t learn from the mistake and keep perpetuating it, then that’s a problem and God will allow us to wallow in the consequences of our choices.
Now, what have we learned?
