As we approach the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, our greatest enemy, Satan utilizes doubt as a powerful and deceptive strategy to provoke believers [to attempt] to analyze and rationalize the Scriptures, which are God-breathed. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 NKJV.
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the LORD. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9
Lest we forget, God reminds us of the limitation of the creation–human beings and our cognitive capabilities versus His Omniscience. Jesus told His disciples, “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.” John 16:12. Even the Apostle Paul, who was highly educated and wrote many New Testament books, acknowledged the mysteries he could not understand or explain. “Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed.” 1 Corinthians 15:51. Paul also mentioned another mystery in Ephesians regarding Christ and the Church.
Those disloyal to God have always questioned the validity of the Trinity Godhead: God, the Father, God, the Son–Jesus, and God, the Holy Spirit.
When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him. And suddenly, a voice came from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” Matthew 3:17 NKJV.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6.
“But to the Son, He says, ‘Your throne, O God, is forever and ever…Therefore God, your God has anointed you With the oil of gladness..'”. . Hebrews 1:8-9
Jesus said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 18:3. Yes, like little children who have total faith and trust in spoken words, we must believe every word in the Holy Scriptures. The false teaching of a “One and Only True God” has caused further dissension among believers. Even so, Hebrews 1:8 proclaims Jesus’ Deity as God spoken from God, His Father. Throughout the Bible, Jesus reveals His Deity, clearly stating that He and God are One. Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father'”? John 14:9
There is no middle ground! Are you willing to risk losing your reward of eternal life because of doubt and unbelief based on another person’s perception of the Bible?
Jesus says, “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.” Revelation 22:12-13
