WHO IS GOD TO YOU?
Declare it in Jesus' name
THE GLORY OF GOD
DECLARE HEAVEN ON EARTH EVERYDAY
I BELIEVE IN GOD
THAT'S MY KING!
So many people say that God is this and God is that, however did anyone ever ask themselves when they claim to know God, is what they are saying about God blessing HIM or not? God is more than we can fathom. God is awesome. He is even greater than that!
No one can measure the sum total of God in one word.
I will list the most respectful, most known characteristics of God and briefly explain them according to my understanding.
God is Love -
God does not have love but that He is Love.
Love is not one of His attributes, it His very nature.
Strangers of this truth try their best to explain this but you must have a relationship with God in order to know HIM as HE is. God's love (which is who HE is) is Divine love and not patterned after human emotions which draws from a conditional force (earthly, temporal) hence, conditional love. Conditional love is completely different from God's nature. The truth is everything, our thoughts, our way of life, our words, everything needs to be renewed by the WORD of GOD for us to begin to understand GOD. The word of God is also HIS thoughts and it is also HIS Word and HIS Word is HIS bond.
Without this vitally important key to know GOD (who is Love) we only reap ignorance which generally originates from those who have a low state of spirituality, low level of awareness, deceived into thinking and being outside of your true being, in short they don't have a relationship with GOD and can't because they need the Mediator (Jesus) and until that happens, everything is going to be puffed up with hype without truth. (I know that feeling all so well, I was there). No one should ever live that way. When you embrace the truth, the truth will embrace you. Until then you will hear, see and experience twisted truth after another twisted truth which will only produce what it was designed to do, to keep you blind, ignorant and lacking the greatest form of empowerment, prayer with your heavenly father, your creator who loves you without end.
The supreme reason why certain peoples hearts are diluted of this truth is because again they don't have a relationship with HIM, not acquainted with HIS love, HIS character, HIS Almighty thoughts about you and what he has planned for you. Satan's master deception was to make people think that GOD isn't real and to make it seem he doesn't either. A lying mystery after another lying mystery that has clouded the minds of billions. In short they were robbed of their inheritance. They were deceived.
Before Satan became Satan he was first created as a high arch Angel and his name was Lucifer. He was one of the most finely crafted Angels. He was looked upon as one the best of all the Angels. Also Lucifer was in charge of all the music in heaven (and that is a high position for an Angel in heaven). But he wanted more (the first experience of greed). Before GOD created the earth and everything living thing on earth, I can only imagine that Satan knew the plans GOD had for us (humans) before HE formed us all. And Satan hid within himself (thinking GOD would never know) that he planned to arise and (unwisely) attempt to over throw the MOST HIGH GOD. His plan was to be like the MOST HIGH and make things the way he wanted them. He was wise enough to know he couldn't do it alone so and he beguiled one third of the Angels into following him. Acting as if they were perfect, just like GOD they launched an attack on GOD and in the heavens there was a brief up roar.
Now I said brief because GOD being GOD seeing what would all happen, knowing the very end from the beginning, GOD knew that this upset in heaven had to be dealt with but the upset created providence for HIS purpose for all humanity. In order for humanity to please GOD they have to do so by faith since GOD can only be pleased by faith. Good had an opposition and where ever there is opposition, a choice is born or a decision has to be made for those individuals directly involved, (us).
Now when Lucifer attacked GOD, he knew about GOD (from a limited point of view) but didn't know GOD. And so GOD stopped him in his tracks and GOD'S Angel's (two thirds of GOD'S Angels versus one third of Lucifer's beguiled Angels) went to war, a galactic battle broke out in the heavens. Now even though Lucifer had some power on his side, his power could not withstand the hand of GOD. His defeat would changed the course of all life. However GOD is PERFECT and knew that opposition had its place for His purpose. GOD allowed it but GOD being GOD put Lucifer in his place and began to create earth and everything in it and on it.
So he (Lucifer) failed, miserably (the first experience of misery). GOD created Lucifer and Lucifer deceived himself, GOD only did what was right. Lucifer had no deceiver, therefore he was totally responsible for his actions. He deceived himself. He had no other reason to be in total opposition from GOD other than to try to live out his selfish gain. So there is no redemption for him. His fate is sealed and written in the BIBLE. GOD stripped him of some of his power and changed his name to Satan and his Angels were stripped in some power as well and they were no longer Angels but were now known as Demons. After JESUS' resurrection He stripped the devil of all power and put it into the hands of God's people.
To make a long story short since he (Satan) failed, he did and does his very best to mislead, beguile, deceive the minds of men and women and children into telling them their creator doesn't exist. That everyone and everything just became and everything is a mystery. He wanted and wants to keep us ignorant from our TRUE origin. However when we accept the truth and receive the truth and continue in the truth, everything changes. When we receive HIM (the Son of GOD) into our lives, Jesus Christ, our naturally born deceived life is changed, our eyes are opened and we now can experience the love of GOD and then the light comes on. The truth is finally heard. The beginning of the best kind of breakthrough begins. Enlightenment.
True potential has been born.
God is uninfluenced or unable to be controlled by any act of Satan or evil. Satan's character is 100% the opposite of GOD and GOD'S character is 100% the opposite of Satan. When you look up any word, look up the opposite of it as well. GOD is the supreme TRUE MASTER of all, HE loves because HE is LOVE, HE speaks the truth because in HIM there are no lies. While Satan is a master of manipulation, Satan is fear himself and promotes fear, there is no truth in him, NONE, only lies, and if he were to attempt to speak truth, it would be twisted some where down the road because that is his nature. He is twisted, he himself is deceived and the father of deception.
God is perfect and sees the end from the beginning, so there is no mistake in HIM. No fault in HIS judgment. No lack in HIS awareness. Satan sees only the moment and he knows the past very well and attempts to be like GOD but since he is not in the GOD CLASS (again he was created in the Angelic class) he can not grasp the uncontainable depths and ever soaring heights and unfathomable dimensions of GOD. He predicts with assumptions. He was not made to grasp all that GOD IS. We were. Human beings were created in the image and likeness of GOD. We are spirit, we have a soul and we live in a temporal body. However many of us don't know who they are and follow a fallen angel's way of thinking versus GOD'S way of being, GOD'S way of doing things. What some people do to one another (just as Lucifer did in heaven and now Satan does on earth) to get their way in life they feel (under conditional programming by Satan) that they have to lie, beguile, mislead, manipulate, to make themselves dictator over people, etc. (foolishly), to get anything or anyone in life.
When people wake up to what's been happening to them (being used as a pawn, etc.) they tend to want freedom like never before and will go to great lengths to get away once they see the open doors, [SALVATION]. Then those that have beguiled so many see that their labor was all in vain and they may try to do the same with GOD. As a result it does not move GOD one bit because GOD knows us better than we know ourselves. GOD is flawless. However they can have a relationship with GOD by total submission to HIM and then and only then will GOD accept them.
Through the Prayer of Salvation.
Indeed, LOVE (GOD) never fails.
There is always a way with GOD and Jesus is the way.
God is moved by faith. What is faith? Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. OK Faith in what? Faith in HIM and HIS WORD and what HE has done, what His son Jesus has done and what the HOLY SPIRIT can do through you. Faith that HE is GOD. Faith that Jesus is HIS SON and Faith in the HOLY SPIRIT. Because GOD is GOD. If you have no faith in that, then you can't move GOD at all. So faith is to be confident in His word, to rely on His word, to put our trust in His word without doubting.
You can always ask God to help your unbelief and HE will. Again LOVE never fails. HE will help you right where you are no matter where you are and what you've done. We all breathe air and yet we can not see it and we believe / trust the is air there. We see a leaf blowing around in the wind and some say "that's the air" and it isn't, it's only the effects of the wind. GOD is the same way, we can't see GOD but we will see the effects of GOD. Look around you. There is abundance all around you. Faith works through LOVE and since GOD is love, you have to behave like GOD for faith to work.
In short, breathe, believe and live.
Conditional love is very limited. It operates in a favor for one side and the other side is the pawn. This is not how GOD operates at all, so it is impossible to move GOD with that motive. GOD doesn't act that way in any way or form. God who is LOVE is 100% unconditional in love with you because God is LOVE. It is an everlasting love. It has no end. We are created in HIS image and likeness and with HIM in our lives we can learn to honor HIM by loving HIM back. It's not only a good thing to do, it is a commandment.
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
This is the first and great commandment.
And the second [is] like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Plainly said, Love GOD and Love one another.
An example of using your faith for companionship: Say you want to create a relationship, to build a companionship with someone. When you want a friend, you must show yourself to be FRIENDLY. Sowing will always produce a harvest. So you first show yourself to be friendly, you give them quality time (when permitted) and show yourself to be trustworthy, faithful, sincere, you have no motive to beguile or mislead them. You are there to get to know them and establish a solid connection with them, THAT'S IT... Well doing all of that requires faith / trust / belief on your part that your labor of love will produce a companionship that is not easily broken.
That's the same with GOD.
GOD is ALL about motives. Again HE knows our motives before we open our mouths. HE knows our intentions before we think them. He knew our future before the time of our birth. It has to be from our heart, a sincere motive to get to know HIM without any motive to betray HIM. And the proof of that is we have to make the time to get to know HIM or else we're wasting our time with GOD. I know I made that mistake. I would give God a little time and expect for HIM to give me all of HIS time. It doesn't work that way. I'm so glad I woke up.
People aren't perfect but with time they can and will see the others intention. No one comes into the world with all the answers, (and we don't leave here with all of them either) we only do what we've been programmed to do. Forgiveness is vitally important in any relationship. We should forgive because that is a strength not a weakness. It is also a commandment from GOD and if we don't do that, it has consequences and only hurts the person who doesn't forgive.
For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.
A friend is required to have forgiveness. And it is that one important quality that GOD has as well. The ability to forgive and let go of the past hurts and start over.
The one who needs forgiveness must do his or her best to never do that again.
That is the definition of TRUE REPENTANCE.
GRACE is one of GOD'S characteristics that is most precious to us all. Again we all can have a relationship with GOD by total submission to HIM and then and ONLY then will GOD accept us. GOD is always on the ready to forgive. Since we were created in HIS image, in HIS CLASS ( we were made a little lower than HIM but rest assured we were made in HIS CLASS) we should too forgive and the truth is we can forgive and should forgive. We should always make it a habit to forgive.
Now without Jesus Christ as our mediator (our only way) to God, there can be no connection. GOD still loves us however those who are not accepting Jesus as Lord of there life, GOD is not in covenant with them. There is absolutely nothing that we can do by ourselves to have a relationship with GOD the creator of Heaven and earth and all life without Jesus in our lives. Absolutely nothing.

GOD so much wants to have a relationship with us, that HE has gone to great lengths to make HIS presence and HIS LOVE for us known directly and will not stop as long as there is a cry or need for in HIM. He gave us His only son, to take the blame for our sins to make a way for salvation for us.
When writing about God I have to mention LOVE first because when I received that revelation of that truth it changed my life forever on many levels and still does. Having a relationship with your creator is worth so much more than anything you can possible fathom or experience. It will enrich your life. And I pray that you will experience the very best of life with GOD as your father in heaven, your best friend, your everything and more. Yours faith works, you just has to use it in a different way and Jesus will show you the way. I believe if you choose to do so, I believe and agree with you, that all things are possible to YOU who believe in Jesus name. Glory to GOD.
1 John 4:8
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
Now I will briefly add more of God's characteristics / attributes :
God is Life: God breathed into Adam (the first man) and man became a living soul. Since God is 100% life, anything not connected with God is suspended in death, existing but not full of life. It may not appear to everyone that they have life (those that have a relationship with God) are reaping LIFE, LIFE is there, it is evident. On the other end those that do not have a relationship with God (their creator, their one true source) are reaping the results of death and it may not seem like it but they are. They are existing but not living LIFE like GOD predestined life to be lived. That is why it is best to have relationship with The CREATOR of Life - God, since we were CREATED in HIS image and likeness.
I would think it be wiser to follow the creator who knows all things, owns all things, created all things and can grant and deny all things versus a creation which has nothing to add to any equation, on any level, about anything and cannot TRULY live without GOD'S empowerment.
God is Light: In Him (God) there is no darkness. God is light with no darkness intermixed. Light and darkness are spiritual forces in this world, but darkness was not from the beginning. In the beginning, only there was light. In the beginning was the WORD and the WORD was with GOD and the WORD was GOD. [John 1:1].
Now GOD (who is LIGHT) created other beings, Angels, humans, animal life by choice but before all tangible life was created, there was only GOD.
Light possesses its own real infinite power because Light always was, always is and always will be with infinite power and darkness in comparison can only operate in an atmosphere where light is gone. The Only Place Light is not (has no trace of Light) is in Hell. GOD created Hell for Satan and his fallen angels (demons) because of their rebellion. Hell is 100% absent of light, absent of LOVE, absent of all the characteristics of GOD. Over all light overcomes darkness. God is light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.
GO INTO A DARK ROOM AND TURN THE LIGHT ON......YOU WILL NOTICE THE DARKNESS IS GONE WITHIN A SECOND. TURN IT OFF AND IT WILL BE DARK BUT GIVE IT A MINUTE AND YOUR EYES WILL DETECT LIGHT FROM SOME WHERE AND YOU WILL STILL BE ABLE TO SEE JUST A LITTLE. TURN THE LIGHT BACK ON AND YOU WILL SEE, EVERYTHING.
LIGHT REVEALS. DARKNESS HIDES.
In hell there is no light, NONE, so it is completely void of LIGHT hence there is no LOVE, no FORGIVENESS, no etc., etc., etc.
God is Holy: HE is pure. separate from evil. separate from darkness, separate from death, aggressively (passionately) seeking to universalize HIS character and by HIM being the creator it is HIS supreme eternal right to do so. Though HE will not force anything on us, HE makes Himself known but HE will not guide us outside of our own free will. It's wiser to let HIM guide us through life since HE is PERFECT and knows everything but the choice is up to you and I. He is Perfect and cannot be anything but Perfection. Perfection is HOLY and HE desires that we become more like HIM.
God also wants us to walk in holiness.
We can only do that through Jesus.
Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.
Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
Another truth I found out about GOD is this, when GOD created man (ADAM), he was just like GOD. GOD characteristics are both male and female. Now remember HE is perfect so don't look at our imperfection to try to ignore that truth. Both male and female need each other yet we both need GOD to be complete. Every creation needs their creator. And remember we're imperfect and GOD is not. When God saw that it was not good for man to be alone, HE caused a great sleep on Adam and took his rib (from the man) and created the woman (wo - man) and by them being together they had the power to create more beings like GOD. A man and another man can't do that, neither can a woman and another woman. So to be able procreate, one has to be with the opposite sex. GOD made it that way. The man is superior to the woman and the woman is superior to the man. The superior part of a man takes the place of the inferior part of a woman and the superior part of a woman takes the place of the inferior part of a man.
Together the man and the woman (in a loving marriage rooted in LOVE) WITH GOD can do all things. A man or a woman who is connected to GOD can accomplish all things according to their faith in GOD. He or she can move many mountains and soar high in life and reach and achieve their greatest accomplishments with GOD, however it has been proven that TWO are better than one (on earth) and when the two become one (they unite their faith, dreams, hopes, passions as one, on one accord), their faith is multiplied which is greater than being alone with GOD.
Marriage is a choice. To stay single is a choice. Either choice is up to the individuals. Now GOD see's marriage as honorable however it is ultimately ones choice of how they choose to us their faith, to stay single or to have a life long partner is your choice. In order for marriage to thrive they must be on one accord or it will NOT work. The point is we both NEED each other (male and female) and we both NEED GOD.
GOD made it that way. It's a truth that will unlock many a mysteries. Any other way they can reach very high and go very deep alone with GOD. However when faith is multiplied and on one accord (in a committed marriage) though it is never easy, (but far from impossible) all things are possible with GOD. As they are led by GOD and combine their faith they activate a force which will empower them to reach their highest potential as a team.
In this next segment I will mention many of God's characteristics and HIS attributes (and not all of them) in a series of paragraphs which closely relate to each other. Since characterizing everything about God would take forever I don't believe you would want to read an eternal blog and besides, I don't know it all anyway, e.a. I'm still learning and we all are.
Now this one is confusing to some but it is one of the most important ones to understand to know GOD. Now it doesn't have to be confusing if you just listen and receive.
God is three in one or three roles in one, yet God is one. One, meaning complete, Perfect, without mixture or intermingling of imperfection of other attributes of any kind on any level. God is one. Each role is full of the other and not void of the other.
God the Son (Jesus) and God the Holy Spirit (The Spirit of God's nature) have exactly the same nature as God the Father in every way. The Father is not the Son and the Son is not the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit is not the Father, etc., etc., etc. (you get the point). Whatever attributes and power God the Father has, God the Son (Jesus) and God the Holy Spirit have as well. There is no lack in either role yet each role is one, complete as the other, PERFECT in every way.
HERE IS AN ILLUSTRATION ABOUT THE POWER OF THREE IN ONE. GOD MADE IT THAT WAY. (MAINLY BECAUSE THAT IS GOD'S NATURE).
FATHER, SON, HOLY SPIRIT (divine perfection).
MAN, WOMAN, CHILD (the ability to create another in the GOD class)
SPIRIT, SOUL, BODY (the sum total of who we are on earth)
PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE (what was, what is, what will be)
THOUGHT, WORD, DEED (the process towards manifestation)
GOD'S ATTRIBUTES - Omniscience, Omnipresence, Omnipotence
Angels proclaim "HOLY, HOLY, HOLY" in HEAVEN, designating that each the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are each receiving Praise, Honor and Worship.
HEIGHT, WIDTH, DEPTH ..............ONE COULD GO ON FOR A VERY, VERY LONG TIME SEEKING OUT ALL THE POWERFUL QUALITIES OF THREE IN ONE.
God is pure spirit in the highest sense. Because He is spirit, and He is omnipresent. In order for Him to be everywhere at once, HE would have to be spirit and THEE Supreme SPIRIT BEING.
An example: GOD hears billions of prayers all over the world at the same time, HE has already provided an answer for them before they started praying. HE has HIS eyes on every soul on earth, every creation HE created, every planet in existence, every star in existence, keeping everything in balance and sending billions of powerful angelic beings (Angels) to aid any soul who releases their faith on any subject that lines up with HIS WORD and does all this everyday while in communion with JESUS CHRIST and THE HOLY SPIRIT and I would dare say HE does an incomprehensible number of other activities all in PERFECT harmony without missing a beat. Not one beat. Simply put.....GOD IS GOD.
The statement "God is able", is a statement that many hear and shamelessly dilute (I did as well in my past) what that means because God is able to DO ANYTHING AND be anywhere and every where all the time...GOD IS GOD.
God is eternal, He has no beginning or end. Again there is no death in eternal Life, GOD is life and HE is eternal. Eternal life refers to an endless beginning and unending future. God created time as we know it, however GOD lives / dwells outside of time (time is the 4th dimension) and ultimately knows the beginning and the end the same time, at all times, within all dimensions and perceives everything about everything that is, will be or has been. Therefore GOD knew everything that would and could happen in all existence because GOD is the creator and the creator is PERFECT. God is always present everywhere on every fathomable and unfathomable level.
God is Omniscient. HAS TOTAL KNOWLEDGE of everything. What He said IS and will precede and be, rest assured, it will happen just as He said it would happen. There is no way in existence one can surprise GOD. HE knows it all. Period. God words only speak TRUTH. The whole concept of truth originates from the character of God. And TRUTH is the exact opposite of the concept of lying, therefore it is impossible for God to lie. God is the provider, the source, (GOD is not fake). Since God knows everything, HE has already taken all precautionary measures about everything and is the only one that qualifies to completely and truly provide for HIS creations / anyone and anything on any level.
God is Omnipotent: God has unlimited power. GOD IS GOD, deity who is able to do absolutely anything (but sin). God is able to do all things and even the logically impossible to our minds (if we choose to stay there) just by HIS Thoughts, Words or Deeds. There is no limit in GOD, GOD IS GOD.
God is Immutable. God cannot change. Perfection is HIS nature and God's nature cannot change. HIS WORD is the ultimate bond that holds all of existence in balance because HE is sovereign and GOD has to be. What HE said, IS. God is the supreme authority over everything in existence. He is not subject to any power or law which could be conceived as superior to Himself since HE is the creator of all things, all laws in existence.
ONE ASTONISHING TRUTH I JUST RECEIVED IS THAT EVEN THOUGH HE IS IMMUTABLE, EVEN THOUGH HE CANNOT CHANGE, GOD WILL GIVE HIS CHILDREN AN AUDIENCE, AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A REQUEST (AND THOSE WHO CHOOSE TO SUBMIT TO HIS PERFECT WILL) GOD WILL LISTEN TO THEIR PLEA, THEIR WORDS OF FAITH (GOD knows THEIR THOUGHTS, BEFORE HAND, however THEIR MOTIVES MUST BE SINCERE) CAN ASK FOR A PARDON, BUT ULTIMATELY THE PARDON MUST LINE UP WITH HIS WORD, AND IF IT IS, CHANGE CAN BE POSSIBLE THROUGH HIS SEED (his Children) SINCE HE CANNOT CHANGE. HENCE - FORGIVENESS, GRACE, BORN AGAIN, A FRESH START, GOD'S WORD IS HIS PROMISE.
God is righteous, He's completely sincere, His integrity is flawless, the root of HIS ethics are PURE, He's straight forward, He is just - JUST WHO HE IS, HE IS GOD -
"For therein is the righteousness of GOD is revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith." (Romans 1:17) - meaning GOD is revealed to His children by faith and their faith grows more and more in time. His children live by faith and SHOULD NOT be moved by anything but faith. Faith in what? FAITH IN GOD'S WORD, Ultimately Faith in GOD.
God is Good. Omnibenevolence - Omni - meaning "all" - benevolence meaning "good".
God is in 100% opposition to evil. Even though God is GOOD (and ALL GOOD [all the time] at that) since God is totally in opposition to evil, GOD has a righteous wrath against evil, yet GOD is still ALL GOOD. GOD was ALL GOOD before evil (and is) or before anything that was made so GOD has the right to have wrath towards evil.
You know the phrase, "IT'S ALL GOOD". Well when someone says that, they are referring to GOD because only GOD is All Good. So we should be mindful of what we say so that if it is not all good, don't say it's all good. However if it's all good, then by all means say it's all good. (myself included, I'm working on that).
God desires to lead us (since HE is the only one who knows us and everything about everything) but God has given us free will. HE leaves that choice to us whether or not we choose HIM as our GOD or not. However in the end GOD must separate HIMSELF from anything that is in total opposition to HIS nature, HIS way of doing things. Even though HE will not control us out of our own free will in any way. If one chooses to be led without HIM, eventually in the future they will be 100% absent of all the characteristics of GOD and be forced to be eternally separated from HIM for all eternity, (that's thee loneliest place in all existence, and it sounds like hell to me) and it is hell.
SINCE WE WERE CREATED IN THE GOD CLASS, OUR SPIRIT CAN NOT DIE, ONLY OUR BODY AND SOUL CAN BE DESTROYED. HOWEVER WHEN A PERSON CHOOSES TO BE SEPARATE FROM GOD, eventually IN THE END, THEY LOSE THEIR SOUL AND SPIRITUALLY EXIST IN HELL WITHOUT THEIR (SOUL) which is their MIND, WILL AND EMOTIONS. AND TO BE ABSENT FROM THE PRESENCE OF GOD WHO IS 100% GOOD IS TO BE PRESENT IN HELL, WHICH IS 100% EVIL. NO LOVE, NO FORGIVENESS, NO GRACE, NO JOY, NO PEACE, NO LIGHT, NO HAPPINESS, NO COMFORT, ETC., ETC., ETC.. THAT IS COMPLETE SUFFERING ON ALL SCALES WITHOUT END. THAT MEANS THEY WILL EXIST, IN HELL (FROM A LIMITED POINT OF VIEW) THAT IT'S UNFATHOMABLY FAR LONGER THAN 999 TRILLION MILLENNIUM'S TIMES 999 TRILLION MILLENNIUM'S TIMES 999 TRILLION MILLENNIUM'S TIMES 999 TRILLION MILLENNIUM'S ETC., ETC., ETC., WITHOUT GOD. AND WHATEVER THAT NUMBER IS, IT'S NOT EVEN SCRATCHING THE SURFACE OF TIME. ETERNITY IS ETERNITY.
God is Gracious. Grace meaning HE displays to us undeserved favor. He does not treat us as we deserve (ON EARTH) ALL because of what Jesus has done for us ON EARTH. When we receive the son we have access to the father. God blesses us because HE loves us. He rains on the just and the unjust, however HE can only commune with HIS children however HE desires to commune (have an endless fellowship) with all but since GOD is immutable it requires change on our part for anything to change with HIS CONNECTION to us. That change must be the acceptance of God's son, (JESUS), this is the only way to the father.
God is a jealous God or has a DIVINE JEALOUSY towards those who worship/esteem/value other things/people which he created other HIM. Since GOD is GOD, the worshiping of multiple things /gods (lower case god's - people) / idols (which were programmed by the devil and planted into the minds of mankind) empowers supreme ignorance and blinds and deafens the image of HIS best creations.
Yes you and I are GOD'S best creations in all of existence. HIS VERY BEST!
Everything else that was made (by GOD) is in a way or another far less than HIM and to worship someone or something other than GOD is an abomination, an insult to HIS Almighty character and also an insult to HIS creation's TRUE existence, when one makes something or someone more important than GOD.

Praise & worship is quite possibly the most powerful weapon against the enemy. When we do this as an act of faith, we are honoring God & we discourage the devil every time. Try it each day, start now.
Pleading the blood of Jesus over everything is quite possibly the missing link to winning in life. Jesus is Lord. When we plead the blood of Jesus, our case is settled and the devil knows it.
The benefits of tithing and sowing is something that most Christians have done off and on (which shouldn't be) but I challenge you to 90 days of faithfully tithing and sowing and watch what God does.
