Today, Scripture points are shared on the name and title, “true and living God.”  Divinity is spoken of as “alive”, while not being mortal or required to complete a finite and measured existence.  Also, divinity operates within relationships using utterance (i.e., breath, spirit, word) characterized as certainty, honesty, and “truth”.  One of the many fighters at “Yahoo! Answers” using the ID “Anonymous” (no profile information shared) posted the following:

 

Is God alive?

How can he be alive if he made life?

Update: is God dead?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:  That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;  And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;  And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.  Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour:  for we are members one of another.  Be ye angry, and sin not:  let not the sun go down upon your wrath:  Neither give place to the devil.  Let him that stole steal no more:  but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.  Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.  And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.  (Ephesians 4:  21-30, King James Version, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  Use Holy Names Not Titles? (08/17/2015); What Is Life? (02/06/2015);  About Knowing the Name of GOD (09/21/2014); About Deluding Yourself? (09/22/2014); The Name(?) of GOD (04/09/2014); The “Miniature War”? (04/10/2014); Immortality (02/08/2014); The Male, the Female, and GOD (02/09/2014)

 

“Anonymous”, “true and living God” continues to be used as a name and title of respect among Christian believers, for it denies the divinity of all idols, graven images, and man-made objects.  One of the most important features that set GOD apart as divine, exalted, and sovereign above all is that He lives, yet, is not mortal (i.e., continues for a limited, measurable time period; is subject to death).  In fact, only GOD is immortal, immutable (unchanging) and incorruptible.  At this time, neither the angels, nor any other created beings and living creatures exist as able to endure throughout eternity apart from operations of the Holy Spirit that we speak of as rebirth, redemption, salvation, and sanctification.  GOD exists as a spirit, and the character, nature, and substance of divinity is entirely spirit matter.  Included are inseparable aspects of the GODhead such as faith, holiness, oneness, person, active presence, wisdom, and wrath against sin.  The putting forth of carnal and material Creation, and depositing life essence (we say, breath, spirit, word) into diverse forms occur as emanation (we say, radiating, shining forth) that are operations and spirit processes (exchanges, interactions, movements, regrouping, shifts) among and between spirit content. While everything in Creation has been put forth by GOD, every object does not display or possess life.  Being drawn to the active presence of GOD will reverse the condition of death, and allow the dead to appear alive in their own judgment (this is called “resurrection”).  After his crucifixion and burial, Jesus Christ demonstrated aspects of resurrection to his followers upon the earth.  Those who are not approved during judgment, will not continue as alive, and will be destroyed in what is called the second death.  Consider again how some of this is stated within the holy writings:

(1.)  Jeremiah 10:  9-12, King James Version (KJV):  9 Silver spread into plates is brought from Tarshish, and gold from Uphaz, the work of the workman, and of the hands of the founder:  blue and purple is their clothing:  they are all the work of cunning men.  10 But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king:  at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.  11 Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens.  12 He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion.

(2.)  John 17:  1-5, KJV:  1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:  2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.  3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.  4 I have glorified thee on the earth:  I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.  5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

There is far more to be said, carefully examined, and spiritually understood.  (For example, (3.)  Hebrews 9:  13-15, KJV:  13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:  14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?  15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
