Summary: Many people believe in god but what god are they talking about, their god of the God of ceration.


Let me ask you a question. Just one question. Do you believe in God? That question

has been asked of hundreds of millions of people around the world. Do you know what

the answer has been most of the time? “Yes, I believe in god.” But the god that a lot of

people say they believe in is not the God of creation. A lot of people say that they believe

in God, but they really believe in some false god.

Now how are we going to distinguish whether I’m going to tell you the truth, or whether

someone else is going to tell you the truth? We have to rely on what? The Holy Spirit to

lead us to the truth. We can not let anyone deceive us and let us think that we believe in

the true God, when it is really a false god. Now I’m going to tell you one sure way to tell

if that god is the true God or a false god. The best way to tell if the god that people are

trying to tell you that their god is the way to heaven is to see what the Bible has to say

about their god.

There has been literally millions of books written on religion. But this is the only book,

this Holy Bible, is the only book that remains without change. Look at a lot of these

religions and a lot of these books that people write, and you’ll find that somewhere along

the line that changes have been made. There was a man, his father was a preacher, that

read through the Bible and decided that, “This was a bunch of garbage. I don’t believe

this any more.” He sat down and wrote a book of his own and said, “This is the way to

reach God.” Literally thousands upon thousands of people a year are deceived and are

believing in a false god. He threw the Bible away! He made changes of his own! Look

at all of the great religions of this world, and go back into their history and you’ll find that

somewhere along the line they made changes. But, Christianity has not made any

changes. Now we have people that stand up and say that they are Christians, but they

want to twist the word. True Christianity is based upon the Word of God.

So, if you want to say, “Yes I believe in God.” You had better believe in the God that

the Bible presents. Now who is this God that the Bible presents? Now who is He?

In the book of John Jesus is quoted as saying, “God is a spirit, and they that worship

Him must worship Him in spirit and truth.” God is a spirit! Our spirit then, must

worship His Spirit. That is how we worship God; with our spirit.

Now, where do these spirits come from? God is a Spirit from the very beginning.

Before anything else was, there was God. Right! No one else existed. God made

everything. When we look at the stars at night we millions of them and God made every

one of them. Just like God made you, and God made me.

Now; this is going to be a little hard to understand, but try to bear with me on this.

When a person is conceived, even before their physical birth, a spirit is born into this

world. It is a new spirit! God does not have thousands of spirits just floating around until

He decided to send this spirit to this earth and he will be Jesse Norris. He did not do that.

And in your case He did not say, “This spirit is going to go down and be you!” He did

not do that. Before your birth, while you were still in your mother’s womb, you had a

spirit. Before you were born, you existed.

Now Jesus, on the other hand, is just a little bit different. Because Jesus existed from

the beginning, He was with God. The book of John (1:1) tells us, “In the beginning was

the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” Jesus Christ was from

the beginning! “The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him;

and without Him was not any thing made that was made”(John 1:2-3). Without Him

nothing was made. “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,. . .” (John 1:14).

So Jesus (the Word of God) existed from the beginning. But when Jesus existed from the

beginning, He did not exist as flesh and blood but as a Spirit. We did not exist from the

beginning, but He did. Our existence came about when we were conceived. Jesus
