Eternal Trinity

In Revelation 1:8, it is written, “I am the Alpha and the Omega—the beginning and the end,” says the Lord God. “I am the one who is, who always was, and who is still to come—the Almighty One.”

Alpha and Omega are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet, and Greek would have been the language that John and much of his audience would have spoken. However, the use of these two letters easily interprets to others as the first and the last regardless of the language. And although, God is three entities, they are all ONE God, meaning we must obey them all. To deny even one means eternity in hell. So, if God is eternal, so are the other two Divinities who are his equal counterparts.

To back this claim, Genesis 1:26 NLT tells us, "Then God said, 'Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us.'" This was the beginning of earth time, before Jesus left his place in heaven, to be born as a human, to show us how the Word must be interpreted AND lived. And 50 days after Jesus was crucified (Pentecost), he sent his Holy Spirit to his apostles and other disciples so that they could speak in foreign languages of which they were not familiar with. This allowed the witnesses of this event to understand and become believers and spread the Good News of Jesus Christ throughout the world. Until this time, the Spirit was limited to priests and a few others who really devoted their lives to please God. 

After the Holy Spirit made his presence on the day of Pentecost, Apostle Peter quoted the prophet, Joel (who was born at least 400 years before Jesus), in Acts 2:17-21 where Joel had prophesied this moment. He had said that God would pour his Spirit out on all people - men AND women - to prophesy. He mentions a few of the end-of-time happenings in a couple of paragraphs, and then says that all those who call on the name of the Lord will be saved.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for being my Father, my Savior, and Wisdom I seek each day. I pray that you will show all of us the way that each of us must go in order to spread your Word effectively and to bring more people to know and accept you as the Omnipresent God who is everywhere, who knows everything, who is, was, and always will be One God as Three Entities. The devil will try to confuse us and divide your Holy Trinity in our heads, but Lord, help us to remember that by calling upon one, we are calling upon all three to help us get through our daily lives. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

Blessings to all in the name of Jesus Christ,

Patricia

Love My Granitestone Cookware

I bought my Granitestone cookware June 3, 2023. I loved these right out of the box. Now, after nearly 5 months of use, I'll have to say this is the best cookware I've ever owned. And I've owned lots of cookware since my husband and I got married nearly 35 years ago. I'm actually considering buying one of their knife sets too. If I do, I'll leave a product review on here for those as well.  Granitestone is not paying me for this review. If you know me by now, you know that I started this website to help other women in every aspect of life that I can. Why tell you about this today ? Because I cook our meals nearly every night of the week. And I feel that 5 months is long enough to tell you about these. They haven't warped yet like most cookware does - usually after the first use. These are very heavy duty.  I really like the glass lids so I can watch my meal more closely. These lids are also vented with small holes so I don't have to tilt them to vent. It is d

Being God's Ambassador: Meditation 4

Let's prepare to meditate . Start playing your relaxing sounds/music on another device if you like accompaniment with meditation. With your tissues and water beside you, get in a comfortable sitting position. Close your eyes if you'd like. Now, relax your entire body, starting with your forehead, between your eyebrows, your jaws, your neck and shoulders, your arms and legs. Feel the tension release as you relax. Allow the stomach and shoulders to naturally rise and fall as you slowly breathe in and breathe out. Today's meditation affirmation is "I am created in the image of God. He provides everything I need to be His ambassador." Let's repeat this affirmation to ourselves as we concentrate on our breathing for a few moments.  Continue your slow, concentrated breathing as I guide you through today's meditation. Listen to Meditation 4 . In Genesis 1:26 NLT (New Living Translation), God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us.” God made u
