LACK OF EVIDENCE FOR GOD IS LIKE LOOKING AT THE BLUE SKY THAT IS NOT THERE. The Irony Of Life Is What We Think We Know Is Not Necessary What We Think We Know. Still people question the obvious and seek to know what does not exist, because what exists does not meet their approval.

Depends on how you define God. If you define god as a unicorn, and a unicorn is an irrational animal that is part of the creation, even though it is in your imagination, then maybe, lack of existence for a unicorn means there is no unicorn in existence.

However, if the mind can conceive a unicorn, a unicorn has probably existed. Your problem is your ignorance of where that unicorn may be now.

The Creator God is a different matter. The Creator exists as someone who has the power to create the Universe and all that exists within it. The Creator God is beyond our understanding, because we are just a mere speck of dust when we are talking about the Earth; not to mention the solar system, the Milky Way or the Universe. All this exists within the Infinite Creator, who has encircled some space within Himself and created the Universe.

Is there lack of evidence that we are part of the Creation?

One thing is for sure, no finite human being is the Creator of the Universe—even if delusionally, one is created in his or her own mind.

If you do not want to believe that there is sufficient evidence for you to accept that the Creator created the Universe, please tell: Who did? You are not foolish enough to think that you do not exist, are you? Maybe I do not exist and what you are reading is non-existent. You have no proof I exist. You do not know me. We have no relationship.
Therefore I do not know you. You do not exist. I can tell you right now, as far as I am concerned, you do not exist. Yet you are reading this. Very odd, really.

The sky is blue; at least, during the daylight hours the sky is blue. But it does not exist. Did you know that? There is no blue sky. Yet you probably look up and see a blue sky and believe it exists. Who is the fool? The one who believes in the existence of the blue sky or the one who says it does not exist?

The Earth spins at the rate of 1040 mph around a string. Somebody holds a Moon on another string and makes it fly around the Earth at 2280 mph. Even though the Moon takes its time, the Sun travels faster. The Sun flies around the Earth every twenty-four hours. The Moon takes twenty-eight times as long. This occurred by chance. Just happened. Shut your eyes and it will happen while you are not looking. Now, see how far you travel with your eyes shut in a vehicle on a freeway at 60 miles an hour.

(I just made that paragraph up. The Earth doesn’t spin. The Moon does not exist. I did see somebody holding a string, once. Everything is an illusion; but then it just might not be. Pain hurts! Too much time in the sun can give you sunstroke.)

Obviously, everything is just happenstance. Since there is no sign of an Intelligent Creator, the same as there are no markings between lanes on a freeway. Everything just smashes into everything else. There is no intelligence on Earth. If there is any, crocodiles would be the ones with the intelligence, because they wait for wildebeest to jump into their mouths so they can have a feed. If the wildebeest had any intelligence they would build a bridge and let the crocodiles starve.

Like wildebeest, humans rush forward into the unknown. They do not know whether they will survive. The fearful death just waits. Yet, as odd as it may be, I found a bridge across the unknown. But why would I tell you about it. I do not exist. I do not know you. You do not know me. But you are reading my communication. Not true? Okay. I thought I would just make that up. I have no evidence that you are reading this.

Day to day bears witness to the Creator. Night to night reveals His glory. Maybe you can read the symbols. Symbols come in all shapes and sizes. Intelligence enables people to grasp what they mean. Pity for you, if cannot read the symbols that abound and testify to the Creator. If you do, who knows what could happen. Maybe you will find the bridge across the unknown that humans all seem to disappear into before they are 122 years and 164 days old—fair enough, in your case, the wait might be shorter.

Not Only Does The Creation Testify To The Existence Of The One You Do Not Know

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MORALITY AND CONSCIENCE IS SIMILAR TO THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WATER AND A TAP. The Tap Exists To Provide Water When Required, The Conscience Exists To Provide Morality,The Ability To Know Right From Wrong. The conscience is what enables us to think, which distinguishes humans from animals.

Our conscience is the faculty that exists within us from birth which enables us to distinguish between good and evil. The very word itself means “with knowledge” or the possession of the “ability to know”. The American Heritage Dictionary informs us the word conscience derives from:
Middle English, from Old French, from Latin cōnscientia, from cōnsciēns, cōnscient-,present participle of cōnscīre, to be conscious of : com-, intensive pref.; see com- +scīre, to know; see skei- in the Appendix of Indo-European roots.
Without this faculty to distinguish one thing from another in an abstract form, human beings would not be able to think. They would have no means of understanding opposites, let alone the synonymous. Therefore the faculty that we refer to as the conscience has from time immemorial been recognized as the conscious element within humans that is the quintessential determinant which distinguishes humans from animals. This is not a chemical or biological function, and nor does it emanate from biochemical interaction.

Because we possess this faculty which enables us to be conscious of right and wrong, good and evil, and express these ideas in abstract form, we also possess the ability to think.

Morality derives from our conscience. When we make decisions to go against our conscience, we are exercising thought processes that will cause us to have psychological issues of some sort. Many people resort to alcohol or drugs to dull the internalized pain that their conscience causes because they have chosen to do something discordant with their inner faculty of right and wrong—like listening to discordant music. The problem for those plagued with a conscience that persists in troubling them is surgeons cannot remove it like they can a cancerous tumor, because, as stated above, the conscience is not biological nor chemical.

Morals are principles or., if you like, laws of behavior. They emanate from our ability to think. However, while people can possess a distorted conscience because of cultural programming, whereby certain aspects of the conscience is slowly deadened to not feel the internal pricks for doing wrong (sodomizing the innocent, becoming a prostitute), this does not mean the faculty does not exist, nor has its own internalized recognition of good and evil—good being that which is right to do and evil that which is wrong.

When we are challenged from within about some action that contradicts our natural recognition of right and wrong this becomes an issue of morality, if we know that what we are doing is something we would not like done to us.

True morality is about the rightness of our actions that affect other people when we know that those same acts would be detrimental to ourselves and, of which, we would not approve, if we were the recipients. Simply put these immoral actions are identified in the second half of the Decalogue. The moral code within the Decalogue covers every aspect of human interaction. One half of the Decalogue is about honoring the Source of our conscience and the reason why we have the capacity to think.

False morality is anything that is superimposed upon our conscience (even through conditioning as children) that causes us to contradict that which is found in the Decalogue. This could be a dress code that, if not adhered to, is considered a grievous violation worthy of ostracization or even death. This could be a code that requires people to marry within the social status of their family or the persons selected by their parents, otherwise offspring are automatically ostracized, if not killed—tantamount to an abortion that would have been, if the future had been known by the parents. False morality could be the exaltation of nature over humans to the extent that the latter is killed if seen contravening expectations. False morality is the conditioning of children to accept unnatural moral concepts; a fact evident in many cultures and the reason there are conflicts inherent in forced multiculturalism.

The difference between one’s conscience and true morality is the conscience is the source and morality is the outcome. So when a person says, “That is against my conscience,” or “That is against my morals,” this is like saying: the water comes from the tap and the water comes from the spring—or river, or dam.

MOTIVATIONAL SUCCESS IS THE PREACHER'S DREAM BECAUSE THERE IS NO NEED TO WORRY ABOUT SIN, OR IS THERE? Every Person Has An Inherent Desire For Something Better Than What We Receive As Children. This even applies to those who are born with it all: position, power, prestige, and what the 99% strive to possess that the 1% think is commonplace.

I want to preach a sermon about a person who has been in the same position example (assistant manager) for a long time and what a reason would be that the person have not been elevated in to manager position, or some reasons why a person may not be elevated to the next step in their life

Harry Riches

If you want to give talks about motivational success in this world there is a whole genre with numerous examples in the mold of Think And Grow Rich.

Donald Trump attended the church of Norman Vincent Peale, the positive sermon-maker who surprisingly was Presbyterian. But maybe this is not surprising after all, for there was another from the Reformed view of life, pep-talker Robert Schuller. For if you have the view that you were already predestined to be saved before you were born and, regardless of what you do or did, making choices are a non-issue, just striving for success in this world is all that is left, you will be right at home with the Reformed view of life.

Those who consider what Jesus said, when speaking of the man who could be like George Soros or any of his friends, then you might take another tack.
  • And he said to them, “Take heed, and beware of all covetousness; for a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” And he told them a parable, saying, “The land of a rich man brought forth plentifully; and he thought to himself, ‘What shall I do, for I have nowhere to store my crops?’ And he said, ‘I will do this: I will pull down my barns, and build larger ones; and there I will store all my grain and my goods. And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; take your ease, eat, drink, be merry.’ But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul is required of you; and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?’ So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.” (Luke 12:15–21)
When it all boils down to what is left of life, unless a person repents from dead works and exercises faith towards God (Hebrews 6:1), everything one does is in vain.

Therefore we find the Scripture in Proverbs that tells us:
  • Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established. (Proverbs 16:3)
This way a person is elevated in the Lord.
  • Humble yourselves before the Lord and he will exalt you. (James 4:10)
A person can become President of United States and even have a massive following on twitter, but when it comes to eternal life—which begins now, once you have it—only fruit that endures unto eternity is worth seeking.
  • He who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together. (John 4:36)
The Kingdom of God is not of this world (John 18:36). For that which is of this “world passes away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides for ever” (John 2:17).

Nevertheless, you can have whatever you believe you can achieve, providing you do not doubt. (Matthew 21:21). Doubt is the seed of unbelief. Unbelief is the consequence of sin (Hebrews 3:18–19). Sin is the disobedience of God’s Word. God’s Word is law. Violate it and you will find yourself on the wrong side of eternal life at the judgment—that is, unless you repent from dead works and exercise faith in God.

Those who apply the principles of success will succeed because these principles originate from the Lord God. All one has to do is acknowledge God and believe that what the mind can conceive, you can receive, providing you strive to achieve, what you believe you have conceived. The principles will never let you down.

The reason people are not elevated in God is they do not humble themselves and allow Him to elevate them, so that they can bear fruit for the eternal life. You choose that which you prefer. Life and death is in the power of the tongue (Proverbs 18:21), therefore, make the right confession and choose life (Deuteronomy 30:19).

The Only Words Written By God Himself Need To Be Understood Not Disregarded

DAVID ICKE TELLS IT HOW IT IS, WELL AT LEAST ACCORDING TO HIM. So Let Us Look At Some Facts And Find Out What Is Really Going On These Days, Satan, ISIS, Icke, psychics, Jerusalem's Temple tax and more.

People claim that Judaism is nothing but an attempt by the global elite to create an apartheid state that is to be ruled by Khazarian Mafia, who are crypto-Jews that seek to rule the world.

David Icke and his ilk believe that the ruling elite belong to a reptilian group of aliens.

David Icke's first spiritual experience apparently occurred in 1990. At the time, when his mind was blown, he was in Peru. This happened not too long after having visited a psychic (!?). In 2003, Icke found the twilight when tripping out on hallucinogenic ayahuasca in South America.

In 1991, the deluded David Vaughn Icke, believing that he had had a spiritual awakening, when in Peru, returned to England and reaffirmed his claim on a TV show that he was the Son of God.

These days, with so much disinformation being disseminated, it is difficult to believe T.V. broadcasters and journalists, especially one who is so deluded to have claimed that he is the Son of God.

Brother Nathaniel​ understands a little about people being deceived, which becomes evident as he explains Jewish delusions regarding a supposed messiah who let them down.

However, David Ike has got some things right, for he has pointed the finger at the pedophiles that included Jimmy Saville, members of the British Parliament, royalty, politicians around the world and others in government agencies that protect these predators that pray upon innocent children.

Icke clearly understands satanists and pedophiles control the world economic strings, even if he does not really understand what is really happening in the world.

The Bible is very clear that the world is in the hands of Satan until the return of the Messiah.

People like David Icke will believe anything, but not the reality of the archaeological evidence that is found, when it verifies the historical reliability of the Bible.

By crossing the line of insanity, a person can be easily dismissed and remain alive to tell his story another day.

However, if a person has the truth, there is no need to create falsehoods.

When you listen to David Icke, and you are truly objective and analytical, it is not long before you realize that the man is lost, and raving about nonsense when it comes to spiritual matters, even history.

On the other hand, Mark Taylor has some interesting prophecies that have been coming to past.

Then there is the return of the Temple Tax for Jews worldwide, that indicates what is written in the Bible is not far from being fulfilled.

Currently there is a massive battle going on in the USA, as what is referred to as the "Deep State" is fighting to overturn President Donald Trump, who wants to introduce tax cuts.

The problem for the Deep State is too many people have become aware of what is going on thanks to the internet.

Had Hillary Clinton become the president of the USA, then the agenda that had been instituted by the likes of the recently deceased David Rockefeller (Died: 20 March 2017) with imput from the global strategist  Zbigniew Brzezinksi (Died: 26 May 2017)  would have been implemented and Armageddon would have been much closer.

Trump is close to exposing the Deep State’s evil for all to see and that my assessment that child-sex-trafficking is the leverage to make that happen. This is why the Deep State minions are in a race to get Trump impeached and falling short of that, the President is in grave danger.
The key to immobilizing the Deep State is to put Hillary on trial and the evidence trail has landed on the doorstep of Podesta and secondarily with Clinton already.
Weiner’s turning state’s evidence is still a possibility.
However, the death of the federal prosecutor looking into DNC voter fraud, which would have put the Seth Rich murder in plain view along with Podesta’s threat “to make an example out of the leaker”, has now taken center stage in exposing Deep State pedophilia.
My source says there are too many witnesses to kill them all and then there is the forensic evidence which looms large with regard to the Seth Rich murder.
My source has also been telling me there is renewed interest in Sandusky’s Penn State’s child abuse empire and that it reaches into Congress.
Many members of Congress can be expected to not seek re-election in November of 2018 over this issue.
By the way, former Speaker of the House, Dennis Haysert, has been charged with another sex abuse crime with a minor.
This is a direct warning shot into the heart of Congress by Attorney General Sessions and his allies.
This purge, even if Trump is successful, will not come without dire circumstances.
A civil war could commence using the forces of George Soros.
A massive ISIS attack upon our soil, the TET offensive kind of attack I have previously alluded to, could make everyone forget about Pedogate and related crimes.
And of course, the controllers of the Deep State, the Rothschild banking empire will start a war if they feel that they are losing control over the US.

When listening to many of the commentators, what is obvious, too many are grasping at straws and others will garble on about anything to pander to their audience's tastes and grievances.

Myself, I want the truth. Don't you? 

Which means we need to travel the road less traveled.
  • The highway of the upright turns aside from evil; he who guards his way preserves his life. (Proverbs 16:17)
  • And a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the Holy Way; the unclean shall not pass over it, and fools shall not err therein. (Isaiah 35:8)
But notice what this says:
  • Blessed are those whose strength is in thee, in whose heart are the highways to Zion. (Psalm 84:5)
Which today means:
  • But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to innumerable angels in festal gathering, and to the assembly of the first-born who are enrolled in heaven, and to a judge who is God of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks more graciously than the blood of Abel. (Hebrews 12:22-24)
Always remember, the Lord of Creation works in mysterious ways!

THE GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT OF CONSTANTINE THE GREAT WAS NOT TO MAKE THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH THE EMPIRE'S OFFICIAL RELIGION. Many Like To Think That This Was His Greatest Achievement But In Effect This Served To Temper The Zeal Of The Christian Witness. Persecution causes more people to come to know Lord Jesus Christ as they see Christians willingly be martyrs because they know they possess the assurance of eternal life.

Constantine the Great ruled a part of the Roman Empire from 306, when his father died until 337AD. Making Christianity the official religion of early Europe might be considered his greatest achievement. When he became Emperor of the western provinces Christianity was still being persecuted. Over twenty years he reunified the Empire, moved its capital to a new city, Constantinople (now Istanbul), establishing the Eastern Roman Empire, which would survive for more than a thousand years. But still, turning Christianity from a cult into the official religion of much of Europe, an affect felt to this day, could certainly be considered as his greatest achievement.

When one speaks of someone’s greatest achievement, immediately the idea springs to mind that something of significance is meant that is worthy of emulation. But to consider the compromise of purity with impurity a great achievement would be akin to extolling the virtues of causing one’s flesh to rot so maggots could feed and possibly bring about healing.

Constantine is heralded as being instrumental in melding Christianity with the world. Merging the gospel of salvation with worldly political rule is not the same as aspiring to clean up disease and securing a land of promise where righteousness dwells.

Constantine may have been an emperor, but Rome was a republic up until 27 BC, and even if called a dictatorship thereafter, no emperor could rule without the support of the Roman Senate. Constantine merely executed executive orders in the fashion a United States President can and does.

The religion of Rome was Babylonian. The Roman emperors (including Constantine) continued to hold the office of Pontifex Maximus until 376 when Gratian, for Christian reasons, refused it. The office of Pontifex Maximus (the head of the college of priests —similar to the Pope) survived from 509 BC: Gaius Papirius until Constantine.  The Emperor Gratian (375–383) abolished the office of Pontifex Maximus. Presumably, Gratian thought the title was unworthy of being Christian. For the Holy Spirit is the representative of Lord Jesus Christ on Earth, and He indwells all who are Christian. To possess the title of Pontifex Maximus would be equivalent to claiming to be the Vicar of Christ on Earth. Nevertheless, the office was re-instituted. The title of Pontifex Maximus is assumed by the current Pope.

What many like to call mythology is really the Babylonian mother-child cult that began with Semiramis and Nimrod and has found various expressions throughout the world. Roman mythology would have a significant influence on the empire - politically and socially - as well as on the future of western civilization. Constantine did not abolish the old ways of the world for the new ways of the Gospel of Lord Jesus Christ.

The greatest effect the gospel was having upon the Empire was when Nero was killing Christians and spectators were converting because of the peace and assurance that they saw believers had in Lord Jesus Christ. Constantine was able to ensure that this did not happen. Instead a system of control was introduced, whereby the priests operated as spies in the confessional system and the Roman Church has been able to extend its influence throughout the world. Many think that the influence of the Roman Catholic Church has diminished in this day and age, but wealth is not passing hands from Church authorities into the masses, and neither is its wealth being confiscated. Instead the Roman Catholic Church is known as the wealthiest corporation that exists on Earth. The Roman Catholic Church is even rumored to be the creator of Islam.

Many would contend that Constantine’s incorporation of the Christian Church within the Roman Empire, as the state religion, was no great achievement but a travesty of what was good, right and true—an attempt to hijack the Gospel of Lord Jesus Christ, inspired by the god of this world. Nothing has changed. Even today the Pope speaks as if all roads lead to Rome. The only way Constantine’s incorporation of Christianity as the Roman Empire’s state religion could be considered his greatest achievement is if a person were on the side of the god of this world and opposed to the Gospel of Christ—The Screwtape Letters by C.S.Lewis provides insight in respect to this.

The Only Words Written By The Finger Of God Has The Pontifex Maximus’ Number

MANY PEOPLE CLAIM THEY ARE CHRISTIANS WHEN THEY CLAIM THE NAME ONLY. People Who Claim To Be Atheists Understandably Reject The Teachings Of Religious Orders And Authorities Because They Only See Hypocrites Claiming To Be Followers Of Christ. Worse still, the name of Lord Jesus Christ is blasphemed around the world because of nominal Christians and what they do.

In Provocations: Spiritual Writings of Kierkegaard which has been compiled and edited by Charles E. Moore, we find a very good reason for the proliferation of nominal Christians:
The matter is quite simple. The bible is very easy to understand. But we Christians are a bunch of scheming swindlers. We pretend to be unable to understand it because we know very well that the minute we understand, we are obliged to act accordingly. Take any words in the New Testament and forget everything except pledging yourself to act accordingly. My God, you will say, if I do that my whole life will be ruined. How would I ever get on in the world? Herein lies the real place of Christian scholarship. Christian scholarship is the Church’s prodigious invention to defend itself against the Bible, to ensure that we can continue to be good Christians without the Bible coming too close.
Jesus informs us through the Apostle John that the reason people are God-fearing in name only is because they do not have an abiding relationship with the Son of God.
  • And the Father who sent me has himself borne witness to me. His voice you have never heard, his form you have never seen; and you do not have his word abiding in you, for you do not believe him whom he has sent. You search the scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness to me; yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life. (John 5:37–40)
The words of the very book that people dissect and analyze to putatively discover truth, as they find support for church dogma, happens to be the very book that states a relationship with God is required for salvation, not knowledge of philosophy. For theology is merely human philosophy dressed up in religious jargon.

Sadly, many people think that they have to study (acquire information by research, investigation, learning by rote and demonstrating recall) before they can be approved by God. This is a misunderstanding of what is written in the book of Second Timothy.
The word “study” actually should read “be diligent”. The word “shew” means “present”.

Study for show is not "being diligent to present yourself in person". There is a major difference between disappearing into a tower of academia to work for approval before God and earnestly seeking the Son of God out so that you might be known of Him, as you let your light shine, so that the Father is glorified.
  • Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. (Matthew 5:16)
Salvation is a matter of faith that produces good works as a result of having been translated from the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of Light
  • He has delivered us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, (Colossians 1:13)
This is the message of the gospel and those who promote it need to understand that this truth does not require years of hiding with a head buried between the pages of the books of men; rather, the gospel is about the power of God indwelling, so that people can overcome the power of Satan.
  • But rise and stand upon your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to appoint you to serve and bear witness to the things in which you have seen me and to those in which I will appear to you, delivering you from the people and from the Gentiles—to whom I send you to open their eyes, that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’ (Acts 26:16–18)
Nominal Christians are those who are still in the grip of the power of Satan because they have not presented themselves to God, so they can have an abiding relationship with their Heavenly Father through Lord Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit and let their light shine.

The Light That Shines Nevertheless Needs To Have Some Knowledge Of Its Existence

Saturday, June 24, 2017

GOD THE SHINING ONE COULD BE A REFERENCE TO THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY OR IT COULD BE A REFERENCE TO ONE WHO SHINES AND IS CONSIDERED TO BE GOD. In Respect To The One Who Shines, This Could Merely Be A Reflection Of The Light That Comes From Another Source. The deception of smoke and mirrors often catches people out and rather than seeking the truth, the lie is swallowed.

Harry Riches

Happy Riches  Answer requested by Natalie Randall

The words that you are seeking to understand appear to be Eloah Helel or Elohim Helel, which would probably be translated as “the shining god” or “God the Shining One”, or “the God Who Shines”, depending upon the context.

In all probability this is a reference to Satan— that is, Lucifer—if considered from a biblical point of view.

The following is from the the Strong’s Concordance:
eloah: Original Word: אֱל֫וֹהַּ,
Part of Speech: Noun Masculine
Transliteration: eloah
Phonetic Spelling: ((shortened) >eloahh {el-o'-ah)
Helel is a transliteration of the Hebrew הֵילֵל (helel) -- a shining one —Strongs Concordance. This is found only once in the Bible and is translated:
  • How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! (King James Version)
  • “How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, You who have weakened the nations! (New American Standard Bible)
  • “How you are fallen from heaven, O Day Star, son of Dawn! How you are cut down to the ground, you who laid the nations low! (Revised Standard Version)
  • How hast thou fallen from the heavens, O shining one, son of the dawn! Thou hast been cut down to earth, O weakener of nations. (Youngs Literal Translation)
However there is a verse that speaks of God, god ’ĕ·lō·hê as being the God of Salvation. (HEB: צוּרִי וְיָרוּם אֱלוֹהֵי יִשְׁעִֽי׃) .
  • The Lord lives; and blessed be my rock, and exalted be the God of my salvation, (Psalm 18:46)
The only reference to “helel” in the Bible is to the shining one who has fallen—Lucifer. The closest word to “elohel” transliterated appears to be “elohe”, which is found twice in the Old Testament, with one instance being a reference to the God of Salvation in the book of Psalms. When we consider these two facts, we have the idea resident in your expression “Elohel Helel” that the shining one is god.

However, what we know is that the shining one has fallen and has now become the god of this world who has blinded the minds of unbelievers.
  • In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the likeness of God. (2 Corinthians 4:4)
Many people are fascinated in the god of this world, but the light that he reflects is exactly that—a reflection. The true light is only found when we invite the Lord Jesus Christ into our lives.

The Sons Of God Beheld The Beautiful Women And They Followed The Shining One

SALVATION IS A CONCEPT THAT COULD MEAN MANY DIFFERENT THINGS AND THIS IS EVIDENCED AMONG THE NUMEROUS VIEWS THAT EXIST AMONG THEOLOGIANS, PHILOSOPHERS AND RELIGIONISTS. Among Christians The Idea Of Justification Has Created Confusion Because Of The Ignorance That Persists Regarding What The Bible Really States. One of the reasons people do not understand what ought to be a simple truth is because of disinformation that is purposefully introduced into the theological arena.

The Bible says we are saved by faith (Ephesians 2:8), but justified by faith and works ( James 2:24). What is the difference?

Harry Riches

Happy Riches Answer requested by Diane Shatto

Great indeed is the difference between being saved by faith and attempting to be saved by works. But being saved by faith and justified by works are not antithetical to each other. Rather, we have a complimentary expression of one being manifest in the other, similar to an ovum being impregnated by a spermatozoon. The ovum and the spermatozoon no longer exist. Likewise when the word of faith enters the spirit of the human, fruit manifests that originates from faith demonstrated through works.

The concept of salvation as promulgated within the Bible is not one of works, for that would be self-justification. Neither is it a claim that profession of faith justifies. Rather, faith is an active element that manifests itself through actions that verify claims of faith.

In the book of Galatians we read a statement about true faith that enables us to comprehend the difference between a statement of belief and justification by works.
  • For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision is of any avail, but faith working through love. (Galatians 5:6)
People, who are intellectually orientated rather than socially orientated, are often unable to grasp that faith working through love is how people are justified by works.

Conversely, those who are justified by works often do not possess the intellectual skills to analyse their actions—but then they are often too busy doing what is required to have the time for contemplating what might be required. (If only I were so adequately endowed.)

Interestingly, Calvin claimed that salvation by works was anathema, yet he signed the death warrant of Michael Servetus, rather than loving his neighbor as himself. The Bible states that he who hates his brother is a murderer, and no murderer has eternal life.
  • Any one who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. (1 John 3:15)
If a person is exercising faith working through love, then we will know them by their fruit. For it is one thing to provoke a person to be saved, another to be provoked by such animosity that one would lose one’s own hope of salvation by murdering or consenting to the murder of another.

The misconception that causes so many arguments between those who claim that “we are saved by faith alone” and those who state that “one’s work justifies one’s faith “ would cease if all understood “faith working through love” is what is required. While there is no difference between justification and salvation—for God justifies (Romans 8:33)—there is a misconception regarding the views concerning being saved as a gift (Ephesians 2:8) and being saved because of the gift at work (James 2:24). Therefore the difference, in some instances, would be a matter of securing or losing one’s hope of salvation. Those who believe the lie (John 8:44), do not believe they have to produce evidence of salvation—otherwise known as fruit (Matthew 7:16). Evidence of fruit is not something that man alone can produce, it has to be the work of God within.
