Christian Questions Blog Series, Week One

Wednesday, June 28, 2017

Peter said, “Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, AS NEWBORN BABES, DESIRE THE SINCERE MILK OF THE WORD, that ye may grow thereby:”  I Peter 2:1-2

With that being said, what kind of Bible teaching and preaching do you enjoy most?  Are you a Drinker, who likes the sweet, nourishing, milky flow of God’s Word, or are you a Carnivore, waiting impatiently to sink your teeth into the meat that God has placed before you?  One of the major keys to living a Christian life is growth.  We are supposed to be growing in God’s grace and mercy, and knowledge of His Word.  If our children suddenly stopped growing we would take them to the doctor, right?  We need the milk of God’s Word to grow, then as we age, we begin to chew the tender meat, while working our way up to the Spiritual T-Bone that God has so delicately prepared for us.

Christian Questions - Blog Series - Week One

Over the next several weeks, we will be diving into God’s Word, and answering over 100 questions (14 this week – because less is more!) asked about God, His Word and Christian doctrines, beginning with the milk (the basics), the easy flowing Scriptures that will help a new Christian begin to Grow.  And for the aged Christian, it’s good to have God’s Word in the Scriptures, to answer these questions, when and if you are asked.

This series is great for Personal Study, Sunday School and Bible Study Groups.  Each week is complete with Printables!  The Christian Questions Series comes with a set of Questions and Scripture Answers and The Questions with Scripture Reference Only.  Two great options for your study needs.

1.   WHO MADE ME?
You were made by God.  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.  (Genesis 1:27)  The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.  (Job 33:4)  The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretched for the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formed the spirit of man within him.  (Zechariah 12:1)

2.   WHAT ELSE DID GOD MAKE?
All things were made by God.  Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens is the LORD’s thy God, the earth also, with all that is therein.  (Deuteronomy 10:14)  Thou, even thou, art LORD alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all there is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee.  (Nehemiah 9:6)  All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. (John 1:3)  Also see, Genesis 1:1-31 (entire chapter – accounts Creation)

3.   WHY DID GOD MAKE ME AND ALL THINGS?
All things that were made by God, including you, we made for His own glory.  For all the gods of the people are idols:  but the LORD made the heavens.  Glory and honour are in his presence; strength and gladness are in his place.  Give unto the Lord, ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength.  (I Chronicles 16:26-28)  For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things:  to whom be glory for ever.  Amen. (Romans 11:36)  For ye are bought with a price:  therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.  (I Corinthians 6:20)  Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do it all to the glory of God.  (I Corinthians 10:31)

4.   WHO MADE GOD?  HAS GOD EVER HAD A BEGINNING?  WILL GOD EVER DIE?
Three Questions, with the same scriptural answers.  This question gets asked A LOT!  The answer is, nobody made God.  There was no beginning for God, he has always been.  God will reign and live forever.  Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God. (Psalm 90:2)  Thy throne is established of old:  thou art from everlasting. (Psalm 93:2)  And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within:  and they rest not day and night, saying Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.  (Revelation 4:8)  And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning has laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the work of thine hands:  (Hebrews 1:10)

5.   HOW CAN YOU GLORIFY GOD?
We glorify God by loving him and doing the things he asks and commands.  He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?  (Micah 6:8)  Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.  (John 15:8)  For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments:  and his commandments are not grievous.  (I John 5:3)

6.   WHY SHOULD YOU GLORIFY GOD?
We should glorify God, because not only did he make us, he takes care of us.  O praise the LORD, all ye nations:  praise him, all ye people.  For his merciful kindness is great toward us:  and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever.  Praise ye the LORD.  (Psalm 117:1-2)  Happy is he who hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God:  Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is:  which keepth truth for ever:  Which executeth judgement for the oppressed:  which giveth food to the hungry.  The LORD looseth the prisioners:  The LORD openeth the eyes of the blind:  the LORD raiseth them that are bowed down:  the LORD loveth the righteous:  The LORD preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow:  but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.  The LORD shall reign for ever, even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations.  Praise ye the LORD.  (Psalm 146:5-10)

7.   ARE THERE MORE gods THAN ONE?
No, there is only ONE God.  For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.  (I Timothy 2:5)  That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me.  I am the LORD, and there is none else.  (Isaiah 45:6)  For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited:  I am the LORD; and there is none else.  (Isaiah 45:18)  Tell ye, to bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together:  who hath declared this from ancient time?  who hath told it from that time?  have not I the LORD?  and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none else beside me.  Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth:  for I am God, and there is none else.  (Isaiah 45:21-22) 


8.   IN HOW MANY PERSONS DOES THIS ONE GOD EXIST?  WHO ARE THEY?
There is one God,  and he exists in three persons.  Think of it like an egg, you have the shell, the white and the yolk, but it’s one egg existing in three parts.  The three persons of God are:  God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost (Spirit).  And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water:  and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting upon him:  And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.  (Matthew 3:16-17)  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  (Matthew 28:19)  The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all.  Amen.  (II Corinthians 13:14)

9.   WHO IS GOD?
God is a Spirit:  and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.  (John 4:24)

10.   WHAT IS GOD LIKE?
God is infinite, he is eternal, and he is unchangeable.  Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.  Whither shall I go from thy spirit?  or whither shall I flee from thy presence?  If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there:  if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.  If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.  (Psalm 139:7-10)  Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.  (Psalm 90:2)  For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.  (Malachi 3:6)

11.   WHERE IS GOD?
God is omnipresent, he is everywhere.  But who is able to build him an house, seeing the haven and heaven of heavens cannot contain him?  who am I then, that I should build him an house, save only to burn sacrifice before him?  (II Chronicles 2:6)  Whither shall I go from thy spirit?  or whither shall I flee from thy presence?  If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there:  if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.  If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.  If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be about me.  Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day:  the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.  (Psalm 139:7-12)  The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.  (Proverbs 15:3)

12.   CAN YOU SEE GOD?
No, we cannot see God, no one has ever seen God, save Jesus Christ.  However, He always sees us.  No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.  (John 1:18)  Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off?  Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him?  saith the LORD.  Do I not fill heaven and earth?  saith the LORD.  (Jeremiah 23:23-24)

13.   DOES GOD KNOW ALL THINGS?
Yes!  Nothing we do can be hidden from God.  For his eyes are upon the ways of man, and he seeth all his goings.  (Job 34:21)  The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.  (Proverbs 15:3)  For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.  (Proverbs 5:21) 

14.   CAN GOD DO ALL THINGS?
Yes.  God can do all things!  But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.  (Matthew 19:26)  For with God nothing shall be impossible.  (Luke 1:37)
