Summary: "The Lost are those that do not, or have yet not, accepted the truth of Jesus Christ being the Son of God."
1John 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. What is in the minds of those that are lost, indecision, controversy, doubt, lack of knowledge?
Who are the Lost and what does it mean?
"The Lost are those that do not, or have yet not, accepted the truth of Jesus Christ being the Son of God." That sounds like a good answer doesn’t it? In a way I guess it is but being lost is much more than this, its actually the rejection that there is a God, a creator of all things, a mani-fester of goodness and righteousness. An intelligent being that has control of all aspects of life from the atom to the continued existence of man. If you do not believe in God, how could you believe that He has a Son?
James states in; 2:19 , “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.” Believing in God is not enough to be saved from the wrath to come. In 1Titus 4:1 we see; “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;”
God is Spirit.
In John, 4:24, John states a simple truth; “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. “ A spirit is an individual without the limitations of the body.” Everyone believes in air, but no one can see it, everyone believes in gravity, but no ones can see it, everyone believes in the easter bunny when it doesn’t even exist. People celebrate Christmas, but denigh the one for which the celebration was created for. Then why cant people, that believe in things that they cant see, celebrate a day without believing in its purpose, believe in a creator that created all the things that people use and can see the results of?
Many say that they believe in God but do not believe in His Son. For without the Son, they cannot believe in God. For without the Son there would be no God. In John 10:30, Jesus said; "I and my Father are one." So then is Jesus God? Some say yes others say no and both are correct. Jesus and the Father are one of the Same but separate Deitys(any supernatural being worshiped as controlling some part of the world or some aspect of life or who is the personification of a force. You cannot separate Gods Spirit from God. As in the Trinity, The Father, Son and Holy Spirit(Ghost).).
Who knew that thousands of years before man even began to write the Bible, that the words in Colossians 1:16 would mean so much in explaining God? ” For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:” We see that even mans authority was created by God, thrones, dominions, principalities, and powers.
Mankind believes that the creation of all things happened by accident, from the atom to humans, from oxygen to water, from dirt to space, for they lack knowledge in the spiritual and cannot see clearly.
What kind of chance is there that all things happened by accident? None. If you can imagine the existence of nothing or the beginning of someone without a beginning, then you can understand God and that chance is not an option. Think about a being, a spirit, a Creator, that began without a beginning. The mind of man is too small to imagine beginning a beginning. Hebrews 3:4 For every house ( The word house here, means, beginnings. The beginning of everything starts with someone. Weather it be space, stars, earth, etc.) is builded by some man (here we see that the things that we see, are built by man, but all that we see was never created by man.); but he that built all things is God.
In all of mans existence, he has never created anything from the beginning, that is, starting from nothing. Man cannot create from, will nor thought. Romans 2:7 To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, eternal life (All men seek the same thing, eternal life, but to those that refuse to have faith, eternal life will be in Gods judgment for them and not as they wish.): If we can believe that there is a God, then we can understand the things that we see and more importantly understand the things that we cannot see.
