ONE AND ONLY ONE GOD

One and Only One God
Have you ever wondered how simple life could be if there was only
one God? Considering how many, many opinionated voices there
are in this life wouldn't it be awesome to you to know that there is
only one you must heed to enjoy life here and now?
When I read a portion of script written for me by the Lord of Glory
through a prophet man named Isaiah over two thousand years ago,
I marveled. It was such an incredible truth that I dearly needed to
know for sure and for certain.Being tired, overwhelmed and confused is not what I call real
living. Having to follow directions just to be told further down the
road that 'no that was misdirection' is so time consuming and
frustrating. The truth you know absolutely sets you free to get on
with your journey in this life and the life to come. So here is that 'yes, this is the way,walk in it'. In Isaiah 44:6-9 in the Holy Bible (Amplified)
6Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and
his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: I am the First and I am the Last;
besides Me there is no God.(B)
7Who is like Me? Let him [stand and] proclaim it, declare it, and
set [his proofs] in order before Me, since I made and established
the people of antiquity. [Who has announced from of old] the things
that are coming? Then let them declare yet future things.
8Fear not, nor be afraid [in the coming violent upheavals]; have
I not told it to you from of old and declared it? And you are My
witnesses! Is there a God besides Me? There is no [other] Rock; I
know not any.
9All who make graven idols are confusion, chaos, and
worthlessness. Their objects (idols) in which they delight do not
profit them, and their own witnesses (worshipers) do not see or
know, so that they are put to shame.

In Isaiah 44 in this particular portion I delight to accept His word on
it that I need not fear or be afraid of offending any other God as
they are man made. There will be no God Wars coming or any other
judges over us. He is our sole provider and the only one to whom
we must give account of the deeds we do.
In our day when there are so many divorces and remarriages our
children know firstand what it is like to have to answer to more
parents, step parents, and live in boyfriends and girlfriends as well
as grandparents and step grandparents, not to mention all the older
step siblings and aunts, uncles cousins etc.. These kids are deeply
impacted and their lives are too complicated for them to handle.

I have seven grandchildren who are heavily under these
circumstances with no let up. Life is not simple to them.Their hearts
have been broken at a young age. Their dreams are shattered and
hopelessness fills them at times.Multiple marriages open the children up to more abuses, more
confusions, and more spoiling on special occasions when one parent
tries to outdo the other part time parent. They are torn between
families and bosses. Their futures call to them to escape, run away,
find a place of peace.
So it is when one has way too many gods to please or appease.
That constant feeling of being watched by gods all around them
leaves them feeling very uptight and nervous. Some choose to
believe that there is no God. That is their escape.
I thank God the Father, Son and Holy Ghost that this wonderful
news has reached me and can touch your life too with a knowing
we can trust and rely on one true and living God. What a relief for
all mankind!

Greetings Dona Hatherley

Indeed there is
One and Only One GodIn John 17.3 Jesus the Messiah clearly identifies who He is.
He identifies the Father
as the only true GOD!Also, in John 5.44 Jesus calls Him
the only GOD!And the early church concurred with their Lord and Master:
(1 Cor 8:4) ... that there is none other God but one.
(1 Cor 8:6) But to us there is but one God, the Father, ...

Therefore, On the subject of the God the Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
I recommend this video:
The Human Jesus


Take a couple of hours to watch it; and prayerfully it will aid you in your quest for truth.

Yours In Messiah
Adam Pastor
