Hi Dear Ones!
Here are some simplified explanations to go with your Bible. There are much more in depth discussions of these subjects on the website.
WHO IS YEHOWAH?
Yehowah: The personal name of the only true God. His own self-designation. Yehowah is the Creator and, rightfully, the Sovereign Ruler of the universe. In Hebrew, the divine name appears as four consonants, יחוח . Those four Hebrew characters—transliterated YHWH—are known as the Tetragrammaton. “Yehowah” is translated from the Hebrew Tetragrammaton, יחוח , which means “He Causes to Become.” His complete name in Hebrew looks like this with the vowels restored: יְהֹוָה
Matthew 6:9 “YOU must pray, then, this way: “Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified. (be held sacred; be treated as holy)
Do you love your father? Imagine feeling like that about God. Do you remember your father’s love and kindness? Yehowah is like that, very much so. If you have not known the love of a father, you will understand what it is like when you begin to know our Heavenly Father Yehowah.
Yehowah is perfect. He is God and he is almighty but the wonderful truth about God is that he is a loving father first and foremost. The Bible says that “God is love”. (1 John 4:8)
Here is a promise from God.
Revelation 21:3-5 3 With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” 5 And the One seated on the thronej said: “Look! I am making all things new.” Also he says: “Write, for these words are faithful and true.
A Divine Prophecy Now Being Fulfilled
Zechariah 14:9 And Yehowah will be King over all the earth. In that day Yehowah will be one, and his name one.
According to the prophecy God will only have only one name.
There is only one true religion according to the Bible.
Ephesians 4:5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism;
One name, one true religion.
WHO IS JESUS?
Jesus Christ: The only-begotten Son of God, the only Son created by Yehowah alone. This Son is the firstborn of all creation. By means of him all other things in heaven and on earth were created. He is the second-greatest personage in the universe. It is this Son whom Yehowah sent to the earth to give his life as a ransom for mankind, thus opening the way to eternal life for those of Adam’s offspring who would exercise faith. This same Son, restored to heavenly glory, now rules as King, with authority to destroy all the wicked and to carry out his Father’s original purpose for the earth. The Hebrew form of the name Jesus means “Yehowah Is Salvation”; Christ is the equivalent of the Hebrew Ma·shiʹach (Messiah), meaning “Anointed One.”
In Hebrew his name is Yehohshua יְהֹשֻׁעַ
It is the name that Yehowah created for him that is above every other name.
It means “Yehowah is Salvation”.
The Master Worker of Proverbs 8:30
Yehowah can materialize anything that he can imagine and control any element of Creation.
Michael the Archangel was the first created person ever. He was created by Yehowah only. At that time no one else existed. God imagined the first created person in every detail and then materialized him without any memories. Then he gave him holy spirit. God’s spirit, when not materialized into anything, gives the person God’s qualities. Thus the person had his qualities but no memories of his own yet. He became a separate individual taught by God. A separate and distinct person. The first of God’s children, the only begotten, the only one created directly and by God alone.
It was likely at that time that God started teaching Michael and explained that God’s name is Yehowah, which means “He Causes to Become” Thus Michael, who would eventually become The Lord Jesus Christ, was created.
Jesus has been ruling as King of God’s Kingdom since the year 1914 C.E. according to Bible prophecy.
He has been given unbelievable power to materialize matter on his own. This is how he will resurrect a person. Then God will restore the person’s memory and give them holy spirit.
Jesus came to Earth for three reasons:
-To tell us the truth about God
-To give us a role model to follow his footsteps closely
-And to die a sacrificial death
John 10:27 My sheep listen to my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.
WHAT IS HOLY SPIRIT?
It is the life force of God. In the Bible it is also called dynamic energy. It is the most powerful force in existence. Acts 4:31, Isaiah 40:26
When not materialized into anything it gives a person God’s qualities.
God’s holy spirit is always sent as was demonstrated by the dove at Jesus’ baptism.
It is not umbilical (not connected to people) It is located behind the brain, between the brain and the mind but not touching the body.
Acts 4:31 And when they had made supplication, the place where they were gathered together was shaken, and they were one and all supplied with a full complement of the holy spirit and were speaking the word of God with boldness. (Merriam Webster: “fill” – Supply with a full complement)
It does not fill your body.
It is not to be confused with God’s power.
God’s power is his strength. Do not use any other analogy.
Even the creation of the Universe did not diminish his power. It is unlimited.
WHAT IS GOD’S PURPOSE FOR US?
God’s purpose is to fill the Earth with happy, healthy people. Most people have the hope of living forever on a restored Paradise Earth. These are known as The Great Crowd or Great Multitude. Psalms 37:29, Revelation 7:9
144,000 people only out of all humanity go to Heaven to rule with Jesus as Kings and Priests. These are known as The Little Flock. Revelation 14:1, Luke 12:32
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO UNDERSTAND
God notices and appreciates all the good we do, however, The Ransom Sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ is the only way to become reconciled to God. That is because the only thing that removes sin completely is the shed blood of Jesus Christ.
