Example text

He said a spirit, or ghost, does not have flesh like Him. He had a spiritual body, yet He ate in front of them to emphasize that He was real. When we get our new bodies, they will be real but also spiritual—like Jesus now has. “It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body” (1 Corinthians 15:44). ” Now, doesn’t it ring true that God must have a form if Jesus is sitting at His right hand? … And What Is His Name? My friend says that God commands us to call Him Jehovah? Where does it say that in the Bible?

As Romans 8:14, 15, promises: “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. ” By daily continuing our walk with Christ, we can have assurance and confidence of our salvation. In God We Trust? Is it wrong to expect God’s protection when facing calamity? Don’t go out and chase a tornado and assume that God will protect you. We ought to do what we can to avoid calamity, and then ask God to protect us and expect that we can have peace. Christians are not immune to calamity—look at Job, for instance—but God does protect those who trust in Him.

For instance, Christ said, “Before Abraham was, I am” (John 8:58). He also calls Himself the Alpha and Omega (Revelation 1:8). Jesus is from everlasting to everlasting (Isaiah 63:16; Psalm 90:2). And one of the best Scriptures to explain that Christ is eternal is in the gospel of John: “All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made” (1:3). If Christ made everything that’s made, He couldn’t have made Himself. He’s always existed! Let’s look at another verse where we find a similar problem.
