It is said, If God were to apply for tenure at any university, he would most likely be turned down for the following reasons: He had only one major publication, and it was in Hebrew; it contained no references to other works; it wasn’t published in a referred journal; some doubt was expressed that he actually wrote it himself; while it is true that he created the world, what has he done since?; his cooperative efforts have been limited; and the scientific community is having a tough time reproducing his results.
Here in lies the crux of the problem with believers and disbelievers alike. It is an old saying; you can’t see the forest because of the trees. Christ is continually thought of as our savior, buy rarely recognized as our creator. Christ is the God of the Old Testament, which may come as shock to some folks, but it’s true. One only needs to read the first eighteen verses of the book of John for scriptural proof. But, In addition; in Hebrews chapter one, verses 1 through 3, we are told, Christ made the worlds. Other verses in scripture give similar accounts: 1Corinthians 10:1-13 showing Christ was the God Israel worshiped in the Exodus; Colossians 1:16-17 tells us all things were created that are in heaven and earth by Christ.
Those (in the world), cherish and worship a humble, peaceful image of a man viewed as Jesus Christ’s. This man can’t possibly be the God that commanded men, women and children to be slaughtered by Israel as they entered the promise land. But ignoring scriptural facts only propels forward only one thing; it makes you ignorant Christ plan for humankind. It makes you blind to Christ’s work on this world and the promises made, we can’t begin to imagine when they are ultimately fulfilled.
Believing Christ at his own words is paramount in Christian worship. He says he is the God of the Old Testament. So should you believe him when he says, “I am the Lord, I do not change,” Malachi 3:6. Also, “Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever, Hebrews 13:8.” Who was this man, what was his purpose here on earth, you may never discover that mystery until you accept him as your teacher.
