The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

Put First Things First

In Christ the true believer finds an abundance of “spiritual blessings” [“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ” (Eph. 1:3)]. Apart from Christ, we cannot expect God to bless us. Jesus promised, “But seek first His kingdom and righteousness, and all these things will be added to you” (Matt. 6:33). Jesus was God manifested in the flesh [“Namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation” (2 Cor. 5:19], and Jesus is the righteousness of God [“But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption” (1 Cor. 1:30)]. In Christ all things are ours [“. . .all things belong to you, and you belong to Christ; and Christ belongs to God” (1 Cor. 3:22-23)], but if we refuse to put first things first, we cannot expect God to keep His promise to us.

  3. What do you mean or understand with “Jesus was God manifested in the flesh” and where do you get it from that Jesus would also be The God of gods?

  4. Jesus was God’s promise made in the Garden of Eden becoming a reality. John 1:1 speaks about God’s Word, the act of speaking of God. Not God becoming flesh.

    • Strange interpretation of John 1:1. Evidently you have never read John 1:14.

    • Belgian Biblestudents and Christadelphians

      May I ask exactly what your belief is? I think you are saying that Jesus was not God, which is clearly Jesus was clearly 100% God and 100% man. You seem to have taken some liberties with the text. I also notice references on your site to Satan as merely a symbol of our sin, and not a real being. I notice as well you seem to believe in Annihilationism, rather that what the Bible teaches concerning Hell.


      I don’t normally chime in like this on another’s blog, particularly with anything controversial, but this one just grabbed me. The original post was awesome, but the comments were…off center.

        Wally, these people are Christadelphians. A cult with very strange interpretations of Scripture. Pay them no mind. I have no idea why they are commenting on my blogs unless it is to spread their false teachings.

      • Yep…went to their site…kind of reminds me of Jehovah’s witnesses.

        And I normally don’t jump in like that…but the error was so huge I just really felt drawn to dive in..hope you didn’t mind?

        Feel free to jump in any time. I thought I had trashed all their comments, but I see I missed these — but I think I’ll leave them since your comment points out exactly who they are. Thanks!

      • You know, that issue is a struggle for me…when to trash a comment and when to leave it.

        I worry about people being led astray, but I also welcome the chance to teach things that are correct.

        For a while I was just getting hammered by atheist..and I left almost all comments just for the chance that someone who needs to hear might read the response.

        I guess if we just go where the spirit leads, God will take care of it right?

  5. It seems you are mistaken John 1:1 where is been spoken about a Word, which is the Speaking or uttering a voice. By the Breath of God Words were given into the world. By the Breath of God when man rebelled against God God gave a promise, to send a saviour (a solution) so that the penalty of death could be broken. Jesus is that long awaited Messiah, the word been spoken. The evangelist John provided his gospel in the same manner as Moses wrote his Genesis for the old world. But John does consider a New World having been started of which Jeshua (Jesus Christ) is the New Adam (or 2nd Adam).
    Jesus is not God incarnated but the sent one from God about Whom the Eternal Spirit (God, the Elohim Hashem Jehovah) Who does not tell lies said that it was His only begotten son.

    Do you think the words of God are not correct? When Jesus is God, the Adonai would have mislead many people and not have told exactly the truth, would it not?
