“As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby”[1 Peter 2:2]
Question Number 02
Question: What is God?
Answer: God is a Spirit.
“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”[John 4:24]
God Is A Spirit
David by the Spirit said this in [Psalm 139:7-12].:
“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 light 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.”
God is a spirit.
“The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit [SPIRIT] of the Lord bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass.” [Isaiah 40:7] How can a man explain this? When God bloweth upon the grass it is awesome. When you realize the grass represents the people, you will fear the LORD. “For our God is a consuming fire.”[Hebrews 12:29]
God is a spirit.
GOD the Father is Spirit, and Jesus Christ the SON of GOD is the express image of GOD WHO is a SPIRIT [Scripture with Scripture]. “Who [THE SON] being the brightness of his [THE FATHER] glory, and the express image of his person [THE FATHER], and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he [THE SON] had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty [THE FATHER] on high;”[Hebrews 1:3].
Jesus is GOD come in the flesh!
[1 Timothy 3:16] “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.” Jesus Christ is the “all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.”
[Colossians 2:9] “For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.” Amen!
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
The “spiritual milk” for the 21st Century believer in Jesus Christ is the same spiritual milk that was recommended by the Spirit of God for now almost two thousand years.
This SINCERE MILK is the basic starting food so necessary for every new born-again believer to GROW.
[2 Timothy 3:16] All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is
profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in
[2 Timothy 3:17] That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
