KEY 4: THE TRUE GOD.
HONOUR THE ONE TRUE GOD
But the Lord is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation. Jer. 10:10
This Key 4 is paramount among all others. Human beings were created to seek for that which transcends. This search for the super ordinary has led many in unspeakable things that bondage their live even more.
The demands in situations of life draw people into all sorts of things that make them loose their way from the true God. Some have resorting to beliefs in creations, some even ask for the dead to pray for them; others make things they have created themselves to be gods of their lives, all because of a vacuum in man’s heart that only the true God can fill.
The opening scripture declares the true God. It goes on to say He is the living God, and an everlasting King. Note that in using the words ‘the true’, it is intended to distinguish this God from the false gods; in saying He is the living God, implies that there are other dead gods. This God is King and His reign has no end, for He reigns forever. Until you recognize this God as the true God, until the heart opens to the Holy bible knowledge of God, life will always be a mystery.
Since the truth is the reality, for God to be true to us, He chose to reveal Himself to us in reality. By His son Jesus Christ, conceived by the spoken word of the Holy Spirit, God was revealed in our world and dwelt amongst us as the manifested expression of the true God.
Scripture says and the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth, John 1:14. That word which made the world we see, became flesh and dwelt among us to reveal God to us in reality. Men and women as witnesses beheld Jesus in all truth. By honouring Jesus and acknowledging Him, we are able to know the true God.
Scripture says and we know that the Son of God has come, and he has given us understanding so that we can know the true God. And now we are in God because we are in his Son, Jesus Christ. He is the only true God, and he is eternal life. 1 John 5:20 NLT. Notice that the son Jesus gives us understanding to know the true God. No one is able to know God without Jesus revealing Him to the person. We cannot know the true God in any other way, only Jesus can lead us to the true God.
Therefore, the more you honour Jesus, the more you love Jesus and the more you make Him your friend, the more you will know the true God – everlasting King, immortal, invisible and the only wise God. Honour Him and He will honour you.
Dear Heavenly Father, I pray I honour you everyday in my life. I pray I live my life according to your will. You are God and King of my life. Thank you for revealing yourself to me. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
