(03/18/2015) GOD Known By Action Not Form?

How divinity may become known and understood come into view, today.  Christian believers declare the name of GOD by proclaiming various divine deeds and accomplishments.  Thus, our GOD is called Almighty, Creator, the Eternal Living GOD, the Father of Spirits, Jealous, the Holy One, the Most High, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Potentate, and Savior.  The writer at “Yahoo!

If the Holy Spirit is God’s spirit, then what form is God himself if not a spirit, as that has already been assigned to the HS.?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right.  (Proverbs 20:  11, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  Jesus in GODhead (04/01/2014); Only One GOD (09/14/2013); Why GOD Prayed to GOD (09/07/2013); Utterance is Spirit (09/08/2013); A Start for the Idea of GOD? (09/09/2013); The Bible and Genealogy (09/10/2013); GOD the X? (07/19/2013); How Was GOD Known Before Jesus? (10/06/2012); Jesus, King of Earth? (10/07/2012); A Man in Heaven? (09/23/2012); Aliens? (09/24/2012)

 

“Daz”, here are a few points from prayerful thinking that anchor belief for many followers of Jesus Christ:

(1.)  Because GOD is a living being made up of spirit matter, Deity only may be known to created beings and living creatures through revelation wherein the GODhead performs actions that display divine power, presence, and purpose.  GOD is known by action and intent, rather than physical appearance (we say, image), form, shape, and measurable dimensions.  Ones awareness and consciousness (we say, thoughts, intelligence, mind) must be directly moved by the divine presence; their own spirit content must be altered, sanctified, and transformed; and the ongoing interactions and operations of spirit matter within a believer must be recognized (we say, discerned) to be the same as the revealed aspects of Deity.

(2.)  In addition to immortality the GODhead is described as demonstrating such features as balance, completeness, feeling, immutability, incorruption, multiple person, presence, purity, and unity.  Actions taken by divinity to establish and maintain the various spheres for life (e.g., earth, heaven, the sea, the universe) include acknowledgment of confession, prayer and worship, atonement, creation, law giving, judgment, redemption, resurrection, salvation, and sanctification.

(3.)  Incarnation is the appearance of divinity using flesh and material objects as vessels that contain and convey spirit substance.  Thus, the Bible may be understood as a sacred object used to transfer spirit content (we say, breath, life essence, word) from GOD to those who are prepared to receive that fresh endowment of spirit matter from divinity made possible through the ministry of Jesus Christ.  Born again, seeds for growth are implanted within each believer for such aspects of the divine nature as faith, forbearance, forgiveness, gratitude, holiness, humility, joy, longsuffering, love, truthfulness, wisdom, and wrath against sin.

There is far more to be said, correctly understood, and properly apprehended.  (For example, (4.)  Men speak about GOD using the frameworks of time and space as well as on the basis of various discrete patterns that appear among the tasks and works seen completed by divinity (e.g., Creation of heaven and earth; the Flood; destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah; death upon the cross; resurrection and ascension).  The idea of a divine Trinity that has resulted has been useful to increase sacred knowledge and understanding.  However, for many this seems to contradict the truth that GOD is One.  It remains that nothing is impossible for GOD; and divinity is not correctly known relying upon the finite tools of emotion, intelligence, logic, philosophy, politics and science.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith and spiritual maturity.
