Unknown God

Do you want to know who He is? I forgot that there are some of us who do not really know and cannot know without a preacher. As I studied this portion of script I felt prompted to tell anyone and everyone who has this need that there is a place to find out and accept the 'Unknown God'. A wonderful man named Paul recorded it for us all in the book of Acts,chapter 17:23-31. Enjoy!

for as I was passing through and considering the objects of your worship, I even found an altar with this inscription:


Therefore, the One whom you worship without knowing, Him I proclaim to you: 24 God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. 25 Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things. 26 And He has made from one blood[c] every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, 27 so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; 28 for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’ 29 Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man’s devising. 30 Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, 31 because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.”

More understanding of God your heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ can be found at in passages such as Isaiah chapter 42:5-9 and 42:8-20 and chapter 45:5-8. Worship the Unknown God of love and truly enjoy eternal life starting now.

Born Disabled to Manifest the Works of God

Born Disabled to Manifest the Works of God

A blind man from birth accepted the blindness as permanent and spent his life begging for help. Likewise lame, slow learners, allergic, dumb, deaf,and every birth defected one are living it as a forever condition.
Recently my mindset was changed hopefully forever to accept the terminology 'yesterday, today,and forever', to only apply to Jesus Christ.
I was reading the book of John located in the Holy Bible. In the ninth chapter the question was asked 'who has sinned,this man or his parents'?

King James Version (KJV)
[A Public Domain Bible] [KJV at Zondervan] [Zondervan]

John 9
1And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.

2And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?

3Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

4I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

5As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

6When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,

7And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.

8The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?

9Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he.

10Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened?

11He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.
Jesus healed a blind man even though the man was born that way in order to manifest the works of God. Since I believe Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever I will also believe that birth defects of any fashion whether a part be missing or broken can be healed and manifest as a work of God who created us in the first place.
