The Invisible, Visible God

The Invisible, Visible God


The Glorified Christ 

Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature (Colossians 1:15)
The Trinity, or the triune nature of God, is a difficult concept to grasp even for Christians. It is no wonder that Jehovah’s Witnesses and Muslims accuse Trinitarian Christians of polytheism. While we believe in one God manifested in three persons, in our conversations we treat the three persons as three separate entities, but they (He) are (is) not.

No One Escapes Judgment

No One Escapes Judgment | Ernie's Musings

It is Finished! 

And about the ninth
hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is
to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

(Matthew 27:46)

Ever wonder why it's called "Good Friday"? Considering the circumstances, it doesn't seem that "good" at all. Sin is such a horrible offense to God that not even His Son could escape the judgment. Something to think about
on this day of remembrance that was "good" for us

lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.
(Zechariah 9:9)

Passover was just a few days away. Jerusalem buzzed with activity. Jews

capitol to celebrate the first of three Feasts of the Lord that required
mandatory attendance by every Jewish male (Deuteronomy 16:16).
In spite of Roman oppression, this was a time of celebration as
everyone anticipated the promised king that would deliver them and
restore Israel’s former greatness. “Perhaps this year,” they thought.

Seth Number Three?

Ernie's Musings: "Seth Number Three?"

The First Mourning by Bouguereau (1888)

Seth is the third son of Adam and Eve named in the Bible. But was he the third, or were there others before him? And what about Cain? He had a wife. From where did she come? And after Cain murdered Abel, whom did he have to fear? These are the kinds of questions cynics, critics and scoffers pose, and we need to have an answer. I hope this helps. Read more...
