Accepting the Holy Bible as God's revelation
First introduced as Creator Lord
Having a relationship with His highest creation on Earth
Man and Woman who fell in disobedience
A subtle change in name and relationship came with Moses
God introduces Himself as "I am that I am"
The Hebrews called Him Yahweh out of reverential fear
Were given the Mosaic Law by which to live
As Yahweh, God led the Hebrews into the land of Canaan
There to set up a Theocracy, the people ruled by Judges
Demanding a king, Israel became a nation under human rule
Some kings followed the Mosaic Law, most did not
Idol worship of many gods was prevalent throughout Israel
and neighboring nations.
God said there is but one God and He was not in man made images
Finally after living in exile for seventy years Israel
Accepted God as One
The Jesus came as the Son of God, Incarnate in human flesh, Son of man.
He taught that He came from the Father, the Holy Spirit alighted on Him
at the beginning of His earthly ministry
Jesus was crucified, buried, and rose again for mankind's redemption
Jesus promised the Holy Spirit to His followers
Thus God revealed Himself as the Trinity, the Three-in-One
The New Testament fills out the revelation of God
As Creator, Father, Savior, Lord
To be known in a personal relationship by all those who come in repentance and faith
Saved from a Devil's Hell and made ready for God's Heaven
That is my faith by revelation and personal experience of God
God of Scripture is the only God, there is no other.
God (2014) Quentin Clingerman
Author's Note: While respecting others to believe as they choose and not be unkind or judgmental, I am convinced the God of the Old and New Testaments is the one and only God to whom we are all accountable.
