We Have Hope

dead end

DAILY VERSE

Because God’s children are human beings—made of flesh and blood—the Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the devil, who had the power of death. Only in this way could he set free all who have lived their lives as slaves to the fear of dying.

Hebrews 2:14-15

DEVOTION

Before Jesus Christ there was only death. His resurrection broke the chains of death, and for the first time, infused hope into the world. Sure, everyone has a fear of the unknown. If we compare it to how God loves us, we can be sure heaven is an amazing place to call home. God tells us his thoughts and ways are far beyond our understanding. Like his love, it is far greater than we can comprehend. He became flesh for us, he was beaten and killed for us, he arose to bridge the gap for us .

    Where do you get it from that God would have become flesh?
    God cannot be killed. Man can do nothing to God. God is an eternal Spirit, who can even not seen by man or they would fall death.

    Jesus was born (had a beginning) was tempted more than once (God cannot be tempted) and really died (his life coming to an end).

    Jesus is the son of God not God Himself.

      God is three in one. He is God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit (the Trinity). That’s what scripture says.

      Trinity
      The Trinity is one God who exists simultaneously in three persons. Each is coequal, copowerful, and coeternal with the other. Each person–Father, Son and Holy Spirit–is not the other. Without either there is no God; all comprise the one God.
      Analogy of the Trinity: With time, for example, the past is distinct from the present, which is distinct from the future. Each is simultaneous. Yet, they are not three ‘times’ but one. That is, they all share the same nature: time
      Trinitarian Verses
      Matt. 28:19, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,”
      1 Cor. 12:4-6, “Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord. 6And there are varieties of effects, but the same God who works all things in all persons.”
      2 Cor. 13:14, “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.”

        Please can you give me places in the Holy Bible where it says that “The Trinity is one God who exists simultaneously in three persons. Each is coequal, copowerful, and coeternal with the other. Each person–Father, Son and Holy Spirit–is not the other. Without either there is no God; all comprise the one God.”?

        You seem to misread the Gospel verse of Saint Matthew. In it is not written that God is a tri-une god,existing out of three persons.It asks to go baptising people in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.

        Also Saul/Paul does not believe there are three gods in one, neither does he says that God is tri-une. He talks about the different capacities a man can have, though they may all have connection with the same Spirit. (God) God is an eternal Spirit (as such having no beginning and no end, not being able to die) Jesus really did die, not doing his own will but the Will of his heavenly Father Who is greater than him.

        “But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.” (1 Corinthians 11:3 ASV)

        “Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father doing: for what things soever he doeth, these the Son also doeth in like manner.” (John 5:19 ASV)

        “Ye heard how I said to you, I go away, and I come unto you. If ye loved me, ye would have rejoiced, because I go unto the Father: for the Father is greater than I.” (John 14:28 ASV)

        The God of Jesus is the God of Jacob, the God of Isaac, the God of Abraham and the God of Adam, which is also our God and should also be worshipped like Jesus worship his Father in heaven and learned us to pray to his Father.

        Paul saying ” but the same God who works all things in all persons.” does not mean Jesus is God and is the Holy Spirit, but means God does the works in all of us, not onChrist Jesus but also in you and me.

        In the next verse you seem to forget to read the little word “and”, stating one person or element and continuing with an other person or element.
        When we say you and me, it does not mean you and me are the same identical persons or being part of one person.

        God Who does not tell lies says about the Nazarene Jew in the river Jordan, that he is God His only begotten son. The Pneuma or Spirit of God is the Power of God. It is not an other being or person, it is the handling, the speaking , the thinking etc..
