GOD IS A PERSON
True worship belongs to a person who exists, has existed
before time began, and will exist long after time waves
goodbye. No created things (Romans 1:25) like idols
fashioned out of wood or stone are to be worshiped simply
because created things are not worthy of worship. This
person worthy of worship is not an “energy force” as new
age thinkers have declared. He created human beings in his
He spoke to his creation.
(Exodus 3:4; Acts 13:2; Hebrews 1:1; 12:25)
He has shown his feelings to his creation.
(Ephesians 4:30; Hebrews 3:17 once again many more)
He has declared his anger to a rebellious creation.God is kind, he hears, he forgives, he guides, he teaches, he
(Hebrews 3:17; 12:25-28)
He has had determined plans that transcend time
periods. (Isaiah 53; Jeremiah 29:11)
He expresses his desires
(Hebrews 6:17; John 3:16; 2 Peter 3:9)
encourages, he judges, he rewards. Only a person can do all
this (and more).
Though some will deny the existence of God and others will
distort who God is, the fact of who God is can be seen in the
undeniable coming of the long prophesied Messiah (Christ).
Jesus came in history and gave a face to God. No one can
hide behind any excuse.
Minutes before his betrayal and crucifixion, Jesus Christ
said to God the Father, “This is eternal life, that they (all
who will have relationship with him) may know You, the
only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent”.
Excusing one's lifestyle because of a belief that God is only a
thought or a force, and not a person, is not only sad, but will
lead to certain judgement before an actual person.
Revelation 20 prophetically describes the scene. A person is
seen sitting on a throne. This is the same person we read of
in the prophesy of Isaiah (chapter 6).
Contrasting the idolatry that man has committed, Ezra
wrote, “Sing to the Lord all the earth; proclaim good tidings
of His salvation from day to day. Tell of His glory among the
nations, His wonderful deeds among all the peoples. For
great is the Lord and greatly to be praised; He also is to be
feared above all gods. For all the gods of the peoples are
idols, but the Lord made the heavens.”
(I Chronicles 16:23-26)
Accepting the lie that God is not a person is the norm today,
but some day, “at the name of Jesus, every knee will bow,
of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the
earth”. (Philippians 2:10)
Boldly we proclaim and worship the God who is a person who
can be known. He has physically healed and changed the
lives of countless people, including me!
