To the Christian there is only one God, and many of us learn from going to different buildings (churches) that after searching for God he is found as he enters our life when we have no more a part of looking outside ourselves and learn he dwells within us through his beautiful Holy Spirit! It is written he is found of us when we turn from all forms which claim he’s there yet isn’t. “Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no saviour. I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, that I am God”.(Isaiah 43:10-12).
The apostle Paul tells us there is a difference of where he would preach, for he did like Jesus did as he taught to the multitudes outside and was thrown out of the synagogue’s just as Jesus was. It was a different foundation the temples were of that day and the wood and stone buildings of today. The foundation of Christ has been from the beginning and is a sure place that cannot be destroyed. “Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Lyr’-i-cum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ. Yea, so have I strived to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build upon another man’s foundation: But as written, To whom he was not spoken of, they shall see: and they that have not heard shall understand. For which cause also I have been much hindered from coming to you. But now having no more place in these parts, and having a great desire these many years to come unto you”.(Romans 15:19-23).
God and God alone was before the foundations of the earth, just as we are the predestined to be his from the very beginning.
“For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building. According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ”.(1 Corinthians 3:9-11).
God who is infinite and who always has been shows himself through his Son Jesus as he said he is the same yesterday, today, and forever. In the book of John Jesus said he and his Father are one and the same. God walked upon the earth in the beginning and through the lineage of Abraham brought into being a predestined people set aside to show forth his glory in the earth! “And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he be the firstborn among many brethren”.(Romans 8:27-29).
We see that God has always been and ever will be without a doubt a living Spirit with an eternal being, which when it was placed within his only begotten Son conquered even death!
