Summary: SO, WHO DO YOU WORSHIP, THE SACRIFICE OR THE CREATOR OF ALL LIFE THAT PROVIDED THE SACRIFICE? THE CREATOR OF ALL LIFE IS WAITING FOR YOUR ANSWER BUT ANSWER CAREFULLY AND REMEMBER EVEN NOT ANSWERING GOD'S QUESTION IS CONSIDERED AN ANSWER WHEN IT COME TO EL-ELYON.
Those chosen by the Creator of All Life do not worship nor do we follow Jesus, the Christ. The chosen of the God of Abraham worship only the Creator of All Life and only follow the Creator of All Life. Now, understand Jesus, the Christ is our friend, our savior, and the Lamb of God. But Jesus, the Christ is only our friend, our savior, and the Lamb of God. Think of it this way, when Moses discovered the burning bush, did he worship the bush because the God of Abraham made the bush burn without burning up or did Moses worship and follow God since the bush did not burn up although God is an all-consuming fire.
Understand, if we are walking behind Jesus since he is following God, who are we following Jesus or God? If we answer anything other than God, we are wrong. Jesus came not to collect followers but to show each of us the way which we must follow. The only way anyone can enter into the kingdom of God is through the way that Jesus went. Submission to God means we are following God.
Listen, God does not need another sacrificial lamb. Our sin debt has already been paid in full. Jesus came to die for the sins of the world and to follow Him and not His way means we are following the Son of Man to the cross so we can also be like that Lamb of God or the required sacrifice for the sins of humanity. However, that is not our position.
To follow the way of Jesus, the Christ means we understand that Jesus' job was to show each of us the way to get in to heaven to stay. That way is obedience even unto death; worse yet it is death by being nailed to a cross which is better than any sacrifice we can offer. But, God did not send Jesus to pay our sin debt to give us the worse. Jesus took upon himself the worse of humanity in order so the rest of mankind could receive the power to become God's very best in this world.
Again, we can follow Jesus to the cross. But we will only get to heaven to realize we are standing in the wrong place. Or, we can follow the way of Jesus, the Christ beyond the cross of Calvary and discover we are more powerful than we can even imagine or began to think. We are empowered to do what the Son of Man was not sent to do. Jesus, the Christ was born, lived, and died not so we could die. Rather, Jesus died so we could live, move and exist as more than conquerors.
Therefore, who’s as well as who we are depends upon who we are following. Do we belong to the Lamb of God and following Jesus to the cross? Or, are we really the mighty men and women chosen by the God of Abraham to follow God beyond the cross of Jesus? According to the commission of Jesus, the Christ, we are to follow God into the highways and byways of this life since God sent Jesus to show us the way that leads to the Kingdom of the Creator of All Life.
So, who do you worship, the sacrifice or the Creator of All Life that provided the sacrifice? The Creator of All Life is waiting for your answer but answer carefully and remember even not answering God's question is considered an answer when it comes to El-Elyon.
