He Is God

When you hear contemporary preachers talking about what God is “trying to do,” or what He “wants to do” and “would do” if people would but cooperate; often accompanied with a plea to men and women: “Won’t you let God” do this or that, it is important that you understand that they are not talking about the God of the Bible, the true and living God. They are talking about a different god, a god of their own imagination, a god of their own making. They are idolators! The God of the Bible is described and set forth as One who does what He pleases, only what He pleases, and always what He pleases (Psalm 15:2-3; 135:5-6). HE IS GOD! “What His soul desireth, even that He doeth” (Job 23:13). From Genesis 1:1 throughout the whole of the Inspired Volume, the Holy Bible, GOD is set forth as the only true and living God, the Almighty One, absolutely sovereign, independent and free. “Working ALL THINGS after the counsel of His own will” (Eph. 1:11). “For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.” (Romans 11:36) “Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.” - Revelation 19:6

“Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the Scriptures, nor the power of God” – Matthew 22:29

Our blessed Lord answers the question of the Sadducees about the resurrection by telling them their problem. The problem is not with Christ and the truth of the resurrection, it is with the sinner. Here our Lord declares to us the root cause of all error and unbelief, it is ignorance of the Scriptures and not knowing the power of God. These two truths are inseparable, there is no way of knowing and understanding the power of God apart from the revelation of Holy Scripture (Rom. 15:4; John 5:39; 20:31), nor is there any way of knowing and understanding the Holy Scriptures apart form the power of God revealing them unto us (John 16:13-15; I Corinthians 2:9-14). – Pastor Tom Harding
