The Bible Truth

The Bible – Truth and Tradition.  

Without the Old Testament, the New Testament will not exist and without both, the New and the Old, there is no need for the Book of Revelation. Therefore, things and events will just happen without the presence of both the Old and the New. There would have been no warning signs, no messengers to announce the pending destruction, and most all, there would had not been a Savior. If anybody is in doubt, the perfection of the Almighty God, His purpose, and His perfect plan can be confirmed through His perfect numbers; 3,7,10, and 12.  The Number 3 is God’s spiritual perfection which we applied the truth about the division of the Bible.

The Old, the New, and the Revelation are the three divisions of the Bible; the Old Testament with 39 books, the New Testament with 26 books, and only 1 book in the Book of Revelation. The Book of Revelation is a significant book to our generation because this is the book we are in now. In the Old Testament era, there were three anointed people of God-  the Kings, the Prophets, and the Priests , while in the New Testament they are the Jews, the Gentiles, and the unbelievers (Jews and Gentiles). In our generation, it is God the Father Almighty, The Mighty Son, and the sons of God.

With that being said, we must acknowledge the right spirit or we will be missing out the important message.  If you are still confused about the spiritual perfection of God’s plan—Pray.

During the Ancient Israel (Old Testament), God the Almighty Father was directly involved with human activities;  in the New Testament Jesus Christ, the Son was involved in drawing the people back to God, and the kingdom of God at hand was introduced. The Book of Revelation was written for our guidance for things to come. It was first known to be the revelation of John, then it was changed to the revelation of Jesus Christ and now the truth that the author is God the Almighty Father, and called “The Revelation”.

The Almighty Father revealed to the Son what will be the future of human existence.  The  Son told his angel (messenger) to tell John, and John wrote the message. If we will carefully seek the truth with the help of the Holy Spirit, we may find it with joy and not fear that life is short and should not be wasted. We must remember that life started with God and at the end of the ages, we will be with God forever. What more do we need, when we already have it all.

As God said: Isaiah 41:10 “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we receive from God.”

Whatever happens, we are in good shape because God is within us, His Spirit will never leave nor forsake us. We have to stay focus and humble ourselves and must always in submission to God following His will and purpose. When we stay under His wings we would be able to know Him better.

The Bible is a love letter of God to His children.  We learn from God’s word during the Old Testament that the people are servants of God, and in the New Testament they become children of God, the church, the Body of Christ, and now we are in the Revelation period.  We are given our domain, our kingdom under the government of God- we are the kingdom. 

There is no transgression in the family of God, no claiming over authority in a given time.  When God is in control no one will dare to challenge it as what happened before the world began. During the Old Testament time God is directly involved in human activities; in the New Testament God sent the Son and the Son is in charge of how he will accomplish his mission. The Son chose the cross to save the world.

In this generation where we are now living, it is the Holy Spirit of God that will lead our kingdom, as we remember that the Holy Spirit of God was sent as per request by the Son Jesus. The Holy Spirit is in charge, not the Father and not the Son. It is the Spirit of God that is in charge of this period. That is why anyone who rejects to be used by the Holy Spirit is blasphemy against Him. There is no usurpation of authority in the family of God.

How would the usurpation of authority be allowed to interfere with the forming of the Trinity? Trinity is God’s plan, He wants His children to be with Him forever. There should be no hindrances to forming the Trinity! There shouldn’t be! No one can stand against us because we are in one accord, and one Spirit, and one Body of God (the kingdom). God is the essence of all things, He can make the impossible possible; and stopping God when He already said what He said is impossible because God doesn’t change His mind.

In the Revelation period, the Kingdom of God is lead by the Spirit of God and the kingdom received by the people of God will be under the rule of God. The kingdom of God is also known as the government of God.  To God be the glory!

God is all in all!
