The true religion will reflect the true God. What is God like? Consider how God’s natural creation demonstrates His attributes. Romans 1:20 (NIV), “For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made…” Briefly, creation reflects great power and wisdom.

In most Bible translations, the word “LORD” in all capital letters is the Hebrew word typically rendered “Jehovah”. Directly transliterated it is “YHVH” without vowels. A few Bibles do translate YHVH as “Jehovah” rather than “LORD”, but this is not typical. Jehovah is the biblical name of the Almighty God. It means “the Self-existent One,” [...]
Romans 3:26 (NKJV), “to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He (God) might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.” God is omniscient; He knows all things. He knows the future. Isaiah 46:10 (NIV), “I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is [...]
Yes, we can, and the Bible tells us how. The word translated “bless” in the Old Testament is from a Hebrew word that means “to kneel”. When used with respect to God’s intelligent creation, it has the thought of giving thanks and praise. Just as God blesses us with His goodness we can bless Him [...]
Ephesians 2:8 (NIV), “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.” The process of developing faith is a gift from God. Jesus said, “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him…” John 6:44. Right [...]
Yes and no. No, we cannot change God’s mind. God has a plan and He will fulfill His purposes. Isaiah 46:9-10 (NET), “Remember what I accomplished in antiquity! Truly I am God, I have no peer; I am God, and there is none like me, who announces the end from the beginning and reveals beforehand [...]
Use a multi-faceted approach to reduce stress and worry. Stress drains us physically, so quality rest, exercise and nourishment are important. There are many good web sites that elaborate on this. However, the faith aspect is often missed. For the Christian, Jesus said, “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and [...]
Where in the Bible does it teach that God in his infinitive majestic power knows my needs before I kneel down to pray?
“… your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.” Matthew 6:8. Spirit-begotten Christians have returned to God’s family through justification in Christ. We are blessed to know the supreme, majestic God as our caring father. God is carefully nurturing, teaching, and protecting His children. He knows the exact number of [...]
Exodus 32:14, "So the LORD relented from the harm which He said He would do to His people." What does this scripture mean?
In this story, Israel’s grievous sin was worshipping the golden calf. Israel had already agreed to obey the law. “All that the Lord has said we will do and be obedient.” (Exodus 24:7) God had a perfect right to destroy them and reestablish the Jewish nation through Moses and his posterity. This He proposed to [...]
To answer your first question: Do God, Satan and angels have souls? Yes, they have and are souls. God speaks and identifies Himself as a soul in Isaiah 42:1, “Behold my servant whom I uphold; mine elect in whom my soul (God's soul) delights…" God is the author of all life, including the angels. Job [...]
