I had a dream and in that dream my brother was embarrassed and humiliated when a person challenged him to prove with scriptures that God is real and my brother could not use the scriptures to prove God is real. Then the same person turned to me with the same challenge and I laughed at him and told him I would devastate that person by proving it all to be true with just two scriptures which were on my mind when I woke up. It was God telling me to write about those two scriptures which are two of the most important scriptures in the Bible but also two of the least known and taught scriptures in the bible. Therefore, I write.
I first became curious about God and began looking for Him as a child as a curiosity, just as most people do at some point in their lives. But later, in college, I decided one day to set out in true earnest to find this being, God, with a realization that the last thing I wanted to find myself doing was standing before a supernatural being, called god, in His court room being tried for crimes against His Laws and facing my eternal destiny saying, "Oops!" I wanted to know the truth for myself and my eternal destiny. I set out on a life time adventure looking to answer very important questions with my mind completely open as to whether this being even exists looking for the truth and only the truth. I needed to know, "Is there a god", "Is he a real living being called god", "who is the being, God", "What does this being want", and "what is this being going to do." Thus my search began.
I easily spent more than 40 years in this search for truth. In that time, I have studied the sciences, the major religions, history, anthropology, and other things that would have any possible potential for finding the being, God, and tell me whether He even exists and the following is what I have learned about the being, God.
This Is What I Have Found
The first five books of the Bible, the Law or Torah, are the five most important books in the Bible and ever written. This is an absolute fact. Everything in the Bible is founded and built on those five books. Interestingly, those events concerning the major event of the Exodus were witnessed and recorded by more people than any other event in ancient history.
According to the scriptures, a census was taken concerning just the Hebrews who were present at the beginning of the Exodus and at the end of the Exodus which gave us a count of just the Hebrews who were witnesses to the events of the Exodus. Keep in mind that there were many non Hebrews, such as Egyptians and others, with this large group who also saw those things happen. According to those two censuses, there had to be at least 2 to more than 3 million Hebrews alone who saw those things happen.
Now, according to the God haters, who try to discredit the Bible, it was not possible for the dessert to have supported that many people. According to the scriptures, Moses confronted God with this same fact, that the dessert could not support that many people, and those same scriptures tell what God did about providing for those millions of people for 40 years as they wondered through the wilderness and God taught those people. I teach and explain this in my e-book, Yahweh, in considerable detail.
It is also interesting that a large portion of the fifth book of the Law, Deuteronomy, tells about Moses recounting the events of the Exodus to the people in mass at the end of the Exodus. He told them what he was testifying to in the scriptures as to what had happened during those 40 years of living with and being taught by the being, Yahweh, and that those millions of witnesses all testified, agreeing 100% with what Moses said as being true. This is very important because it was clearly stated that the Torah or Law was being written and testified to by these millions of witnesses to be a testimony to their children, children's children, and their future descendants as to what really happened to those people during those 40 years. You know they wanted their descendants to have an accurate accounting of the things they saw, heard, and did during those 40 years so you know they would not lie in mass about things they wanted their descendants to know about. This was very important to them, they were leaving a legacy behind for their future generations to know what they lived through. I teach this in greater detail in my e-book, Yahweh.
In Torah there are a number of very important scriptures which prove beyond a doubt that the being, Yahweh, is real, He lives, and He exists and that this great being is not a myth of old wive's tale as purported by the lying God haters. I shall simply share with you one which I feel is very important and God told me to share with you. That scripture is Exodus 33:8-11.
Exodus 33:8-11 And it came to pass, when Moses went out to the tabernacle, that all the people rose up and stood every man at his tent door, and looked after Moses, until he was gone into the tabernacle. And it came to pass, as Moses entered into the tabernacle, the cloudy pillar descended and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and the Lord talked with Moses. And all the people saw the cloudy pillar stand at the tabernacle door: and all the people rose up and worshiped, every man in his tent door. And the Lord spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend.
This event happened on an almost daily basis for 40 years with millions of witnesses watching it happen. These scriptures were their testimony to their future generations that these things had happened and that this being, Yahweh, is real, He lives, and He exists.
Also, it is important to understand that most preachers teach that only Moses could meet with God in the Tabernacle but that is not true and is proved false in the previous verse, Exodus 33:7 which says, "And Moses took the tabernacle, and pitched it outside the camp far from the camp, and called it the tabernacle of the congregation. And it came to pass that every one who sought the Lord went out to the tabernacle of the congregation, which was outside the camp." Obviously, everyone who wanted could meet and talk with this same being, God. The tent was set up purposefully so that any one and everyone who wanted could meet and talk with this incredible being. Therefore, it is only common sense that this incredible being, Yahweh, could not possibly be a voice in Moses' head. Have you ever met and talked with a voice in another person's head?
There are plenty of other scriptures which show that the people actually saw and heard this being Yahweh and on a regular basis yet the God haters teach us that God was just a voice in Moses' head implying Moses was nuts when clearly he was not nuts and God was not just a voice in Moses' head. This is a real being who lives and exists, He has been seen and heard by millions of people who lived with this being every day for over 40 years of their lives and Torah is a testimony as to this having been true and what happened. Today, we would call this an extended encounter of the third kind by a vastly superior supernatural being, Yahweh, called God.
This was the primary reason why I wrote the e-book, Yahweh. I had been seeing so many lies attempting to prove this great being doesn't exist and the Bible is a farce. I had just recently seen the "documentary" by Peter Jennings about Moses and the Exodus which was a complete farce and wasn't even 1% scripturally accurate in its portrayal of what happened during the Exodus. These lies infuriated me and caused me to write my e-book to share the truth about what really happened during the Exodus according to the scriptures. Therefore, I worked hard to make my e-novel as scripturally accurate as I could by using both the annotated Christian Bible and annotated Jewish Chumash and Tanach. I even wrote a list of the scriptures I used in telling the story in the appendix so you could see just how accurately I wrote the story. I wanted to know the truth and I want you to know the truth because, as Jesus said, "The truth will set you free."
I also used my e-novel to share with you in an interesting and fun form the most significant things I have learned about this great being, Yahweh, who He is, what He wants, what He expects from us, and what His plans are for the future. I teach the answers to the most significant questions currently being asked and used to challenge the existence of this great being. It may not be one of the most professionally written novels but is has to be one of the most important novels every written because of the truth it teaches.
The second verse I woke with on my mind is in the New Testament and has to do with proving whether Jesus is the living Son of God. This verse is Matthew 3:16-17 and has to do with the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist.
You have to understand that, by this time in the ministry of Jesus, Jesus had over 5,000 followers and we are told that John had many times more followers than Jesus. The scriptural experts estimate that John had at least two to three times more followers than Jesus had which would have put John's followers at from about 10,000 to over 15,000. When Jesus showed up to be baptized by John, all of His followers came with him and mingled with John's followers and witnessed this incredible event. This would have put the number of witnesses for this event at from about 15,000 to over 20,000 people. You also have to understand that the way the first four books of the New Testament were accepted as valid accounts of the life and ministry of Jesus is that, over a period of decades, thousands of witnesses to the events during the life and ministry of Jesus gathered together in people's homes and even in Jewish synagogues, testified to which events they had seen, and helped decide which writings would be accepted in the testimony about the life and ministry of Jesus or the New Testament. Therefore, this scripture had to pass the scrutiny of all those witnesses to make it into the New Testament.
Keeping all of this in mind, Matthew 3:16-17 very clearly states, "And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water; and, lo, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him. And, lo, a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."
This is easily one of the most important scriptures in the Bible because tens of thousands of people witnessed heaven opening up and heard a voice from God coming down from heaven saying that Jesus was His beloved Son and that He, God, was very pleased with Jesus. In other words, tens of thousands of witnesses heard God say Himself that Jesus is God's Son.
This single scripture proves beyond any doubt that Jesus, Yeshuah, is the living Son of God. God said so and that settles it. Everything else is a lie.
Now you should be able to see and understand why God told me to write about these two verses. They teach the two most important things in the Bible. First, that God is a real, living being who was seen and heard by millions of witnesses at the same time. Second, that Jesus is the living Son of that God as testified to by that God.
If I could only teach two verses, I would teach these two because everything else is dependent on what these two verses teach. These two scriptures teach the two most important messages in the Bible because, if these messages were false, nothing else in the Bible would matter. Why do you think God told me to write about them? Therefore, I wrote.
Now, let me share a few other things I have learned about God.
One God or Three?
So who is God and do we Christians worship one God or three?
First, you have to understand that the being, Yahweh, is a superior being with supernatural powers. Therefore, it is not only wrong but foolish to try to understand Him based on what we can and cannot do. Our abilities and inabilities have nothing to do with this being, what He can do, and what He is like. The very fact He is superior to us tells He is different from us and can do things we cannot. Then, when you throw in the supernatural powers, it should be obvious to everyone, except the most stupid people, that we should not even try to understand or explain this being using our abilities and inabilities. In fact, I have learned it is not possible for the very limited human mind to even comprehend the totally of the existence of God. Our limited minds can't understand infinity or eternity and, therefore, can't understand an infinite and eternal being.
In studying the scriptures, I learned that this being is very capable of manifesting or causing Himself to appear to us in any form He wants at any time He wants and even in different forms at the same time. Jesus pointed this out when He said, "If you have seen me, you have seen the Father because we are the same", meaning the same being, just in different forms or manifestations. Jesus was just really the being, Yahweh, manifest in the form of a humanbeing to serve a purpose in God's over all plans. The Holy Spirit or Shekinah Glory of God is just another manifestation of Yahweh serving a different purpose in God's plans. In other words, the three different entities are actually just different forms of the same entity so that we are really just serving and worshiping one being in three different forms at the same time.
Some people insist that is impossible. Why, because they can't do it? Them not being able to do it doesn't make it impossible for a superior being like Yahweh to do it. It just means they can't do it. Them refusing to believe God can't do something because they cannot do that thing is just them trying to arrogantly elevate themselves to God's level, which is foolishness.
The 73 most important years on this planet in the last 5,000 years were the 73 years this incredible being spent living on this planet with man during the 40 year Exodus and 33 years of the life of Jesus. He spent those years here teaching us how to live better, more peaceful, happier, and healthier lives but we insist on rejecting His teachings for our own stupidity, greed, and lusts. We don't want to live by His teachings because we want to do the things He wisely teaches us to not do in order to have better lives and we always pay the price but never learn. We are currently in the process of paying the same prices for the same crimes of our ancestors and most of us will not learn this time either because we don't want to learn.
New Testament Christians
Then there are those who claim to be only New Testament Christians so they can feel free to commit the crimes we are taught in the Old Testament to not commit. Let's get this straight, if you are a New Testament Christian, you are not a Christian and are a nothing. Did you know that Jesus didn't teach one sermon from the New Testament because it was not written until decades after His death? Everything Jesus taught came from the Old Testament so how can you possibly be a New Testament Christian when Jesus was a conservative Old Testament preacher?
These poser Christians like to teach it is alright for them to commit adultery, lie, steal, and even murder because Jesus destroyed the Old Testament and Law. This is in spite of the fact that Jesus said, "I came not to destroy the Law (Torah) but to fulfill it." Oops!
It is not possible to understand Jesus and the New Testament without knowing and understanding the Old Testament because the New Testament is founded and built on the Old Testament and is just the completion of the Old Testament. Everything Jesus taught and every prophesy He fulfilled was in the Old Testament. How could you possibly know if Jesus fulfilled even just one prophesy from the Old Testament, if you don't study and know the Old Testament? The Old Testament proves and confirms that Jesus is the Son of God and our Messiah.
Therefore, it is not possible to be just a New Testament Christian and, anyone who makes such a stupid claim, is a nothing because nothing in the New Testament could possibly be true if it were not for the Old Testament. As I have shown, some of the most important scriptures in the Bible that make it possible for the New Testament to be true or have any meaning are in the Old Testament because that is where it is proved repeatedly that God is real, He lives, and He exists. You cannot prove this in just the New Testament. Without that proof, nothing else matters.
The Old Testament is a eye witness proof that God exists and tells us about God and what His plans are. The New Testament is an eye witness proof that a very important part of God's plans and prophesies have been fulfilled and further clarification on God's remaining plans. How can you understand the clarification without first understanding what is being clarified?
What Is A Prophet?
Finally, I want to clear up some misconceptions concerning what a prophet is and what prophesies are. The original Hebrew words that have been translated to mean prophet actually meant teacher. The implication here is that God would tell something to a person and then tell that person to go teach that something to other people. Today, we would call this person a messenger. God gives that person a message and that person is then told to deliver that message.
A prophesy is really just God telling us He will do something in the future. Basically, He is just telling us what He is going to do or His plans. Some times God uses symbolisms and other times not.
You have to understand that the scriptures make it very clear that it is not the responsibility of the person to say or prove they are a prophet. That is God's responsibility and the way it works is that God will prove whether a person is a prophet or messenger sent by God by making the things the person said will happen come true. The only responsibility of the prophet or messenger is to deliver the message.
God has two basic ways of proving a person is His prophet or messenger. First, for everyone, God will make the message come true, if and only if the person is God's prophet or messenger. Second, for many, God proves they are a prophet or His messenger by performing miracles or things which we humans can't cause with our own limited abilities. God has used this second method to confirm most but not all of His prophets.
You also need to understand that God communicates with His messengers in serval ways. The first method is stated in Numbers 12:4-8 "And the Lord spoke suddenly to Moses, and to Aaron, and to Miriam, 'Come out you three to the tabernacle of the congregation.' And they three came out. And the Lord came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood in the door of the tabernacle, and called Aaron and Miriam, and they both came forth. And he said, 'Hear now my words: If there is a prophet among you, I the Lord will make myself known to him in a vision, and will speak to him in a dream. My servant, Moses, is not so, who is faithful in all my house. With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even plainly, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of the Lord shall he behold. Wherefore, then, were you not afraid to speak against my servant, Moses?"
God makes it very plain in this one scripture that He is both capable of communicating with humans, does communicate with humans, and how He communicates with humans, by dreams and visions. He also teaches us things via revelations.
Amazingly, the God haters want us to believe that a superior being cannot communicate with us inferior humans when they themselves often communicate with inferior beings or animals. They ridicule and insult people for believing God can and does communicate with us when it is very clear that a superior being should be able to communicate with us in ways we can't communicate with others. Their hate filled statements are at best hypocrisy and foolishness. Of course a superior being would be able to communicate with us in ways we cannot communicate with others. He is superior to us and God said He does communicate with us and how He does.
The truth is that the Bible is God's message to the world and, if you study and teach the Bible accurately, then you are also a messenger or prophet of God. Think about it.
