DISCOVER GOD



1CHRONICLES 28:9

"And you, Solomon my son, know the God of your father, and serve him with a devoted heart and a willing soul, for the LORD searches all hearts and understands every purpose and every thought. If you look for him, he will let himself be found by you; but if you abandon him, he will reject you forever."


As King David explained to his son Solomon, if you want to succeed in your life you must discover the God of your father, know him and serve him with all your heart. the same principle is applicable to our generation. To worship and serve God, you must first discover Him, then know Him well, and then you will be able to serve and worship Him.


To discover God, it is important to ask questions in your mind such as Who is God?


WHO IS GOD?

Generally speaking, God is all things or beings which become the object of faith and adoration of men.


ATTENTION:

The current religious belief system is divided into two:

The monotheistic system and the polytheistic system.


IN MONOTHEISTIC SYSTEM:

In monotheistic belief systems, we believe in one and only God. In this system, God is generally considered the supreme being, the creator of heaven and earth, and the primary object of faith and worship.


IN POLYTHEISTIC SYSTEMS:

In polytheistic belief systems that believe in the existence of multiple gods on the planet, a god is “a spirit or being endowed with the ability to control some part of the universe or life; such a deity is often worshiped by people who believe in him.


THE GOD THAT WE PRAY:

The God we pray to and confess in Christianity today is the God of the Bible who created heaven and earth and everything that exists. Theologically, he revealed himself in us through his word which was transmitted to us through the writings we call the Bible today.


THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MAN AND GOD OF THE BIBLE:

Historically, God created man in the Garden of Eden, and through his disobedience, man separated himself from God. Then, the family of Adan and Eve and their children evolved far from the face of God.


But despite this separation from God, the spirit of worshiping God was still in this family. What is confirmed in Genesis 4:1-15, Through the story of the two brothers Cain and Abel, both sons of Adam and Eve, decided on their own initiative to worship and offer to God without anyone Don't tell them about it.


But the bad news is that this cult will quickly turn into tragedy because Cain could not accept that his offering was rejected by God, which pushed him to take the initiative of killing his own brother.


According to my understanding of Scripture, God refused Cain's offering because his state of heart was not pure, and He accepted Abel's offering because of the sincerity of his state of heart.


Caution: When it comes to offerings, it is not what you bring that impresses God but the state of your heart and the reason that motivates you to give will determine whether your offering will be accepted by God or rejected.


Bible verse (2 Corinthians 9:7)

Let each give as he has decided in his heart, without regret or constraint, For God loves those who give with joy.


PROPHETIC INTERPRETATION OF ABEL’S DEATH:

Prophetically, Cain did not kill Abel alone. But it was the Devil who made him kill his brother because the Devil wanted to eliminate the generation of worshipers in Adan and Eve's family because he wanted to ensure that this family would remain lost away from God . because he saw in Abel the spirit of worship, which is why he wanted to eliminate him.


To understand that this tragedy was planned by Satan, you must read: Genesis 4:6-7


“And the LORD said to Cain, Why are you angry, and why is your face downcast? 7 Indeed, if you do good, you will lift up your face, but if you do evil, sin will lie down. at the gate, and his desires are for you, but you have dominion over him. (Genesis 4:6-7)


In this Bible verse, it is clear that God alerts Cain of Satan's evil plan but Cain allows himself to be manipulated by the devil in his thoughts and he ends up killing his own brother.


And this is a good example which makes us understand that your own brother and sister in your family if they are animated by the spirit of the Devil it is possible that the Devil will pass through them to destroy you.


PROPHETIC BIRTH OF SETH: (GENESIS 4:25-26)

Seth was one of the sons of Adam and Eve, born after the tragedy of Abel's death. Seth was the embodiment of Abel's prophetic spirit. On the day Adam was born, his father gave him the name Seth which means “God gave me another Abel”. So, by naming him Seth, Adam wanted to express prophetically in his soul that God would give me another worshiper in the family.


GENESE 4:25-26

Adam knew his wife; She gave birth to a son and named him Seth. For, she said, God has given me another son in place of Abel, whom Cain killed. 26 Seth also had a son, and he called his name Enosh. It was then that people began to call on the name of the Lord.


Continuing this story, we see that Seth will give birth to Enosh. The Bible teaches us that it was through Enosh that the name of the Lord began to be called upon again on the earth. And later, through Enoch, we see another worshiper named Enoch, who walked with God three hundred years; then he was taken up by God to heaven.


GENESIS 5:22-24

Enoch, sixty-five years old, became the father of Methuselah. 22 Enoch, after the birth of Methuselah, walked with God three hundred years; and he begat sons and daughters. 23 The whole life of Enoch was three hundred and sixty-five years. 24 Enoch walked with God; then he was no more, because God took him.


And through the descendants of Enoch, we see the Patriarch Noah emerge, the builder of the famous ark who became the patriarch of humanity after the flood because he was the only one to survive with his family the flood which had engulfed the entire planet .

The Lord even made a covenant with Noah in which He swore not to destroy the earth again with torrential rains. and the sign which remind Us of this alliance concluded between God and the patriarch Noah is the Rainbow. (Read GENESIS 9:11-17)


GENESIS 5:28-29

Lamech, being one hundred and eighty-two years old, fathered a son. 29 He called his name Noah, saying, This one will comfort us for our tired and the hard work of our hands, coming from this land which the LORD has cursed.


And later we see Abraham appear, whom the Bible calls father of faith, giving birth to Isaac and Isaac giving birth to Ezaü and Jacob who, the name was changed to Israel who will give birth to the twelve tributes of Israel who will later become the nation of Israel or the Hebrews through whom Jesus Christ came out to save mankind from these sins, therefore it is written that salvation comes from the Jews.


JOHN 4:22

You adore what you do not know; we worship what we know, because salvation comes from the Jews.


And through the death and resurrection of Jesus, we pagans are saved and we also discover the God of the Bible who is the God of Israel, “the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob”.
