CAN YOU HELP OUT?

Last year during one of my short breaks in Croatia, a friend of mine gave me a book titled ” The Lost Books of the Bible.” Since then, I have read this book twice. But since then, there are many questions that I have been battling with inside me since then. If someone could help me out with good answers to these questions, I will be grateful.

Qt 1 How can God be defined?

Qt2 Is destiny real? If yes, how is God related to our destiny in life?

Qt 3 How is God related in our past, present, and future? Is He aware of all these?

I humbly await your reply. Thanks

  1. Qt 1 How can God be defined?
    Ans. God cannot be defined with articulate speech. He’s immense(eternal and infinite), hence, the definition of God will end up being infinite. However, I present Him as Love, Light, and Life Etc. Everything Jesus Christ represents.

    Qt2 Is destiny real? If yes, how is God related to our destiny in life?
    Ans. Destiny is real, as can be seen in Jeremiah 1:5; Romans 8:28-30; Luke 1; etc.
    God is the Maker, Enhancer, Restorer, and Fulfiller of destinies.

    Remember Samson, Isaac, Jacob, etc., hence, we must rely on God to fulfill destiny because we’re branches, while He’s the Vine.

    Qt 3 How is God related in our past, present, and future? Is He aware of all these?

    Ans. “For in Him we live, and move, and have our being; …” (Acts 17:28). That implies that God is our habitation and source. Our lives originate and keeps flowing from Him. He was, He is, He will be β€” Eternal.

      1. God knew that Adam and Eve could eat of the fruit if they choose to, hence, won’t stampede their right or freedom of choice, but to let them know of the implications of whatever choice they’ll make afterwards.

        Just in line with what I said concerning destiny. God shows us where, while we choose whether or not to go. God shows us how and when, and we can choose otherwise, the consequences are ours to bear.

        I hope I understood the question well?

      2. Yes. He knew that Adam and Eve could decide otherwise and they did. In fact, the right to choice having foreknew the consequences is the reason God doesn’t dictate how we live our lives but only let’s us know the consequences which is determined by the choice we make. And don’t forget that we don’t make choices before being aware of the consequences.

      3. No. It wasn’t a punishment, rather a consequence of their actions. He had told them earlier that should they it of the tree, death was inevitable, hence, God would be unfaithful if he did otherwise. Don’t forget that the devil is in the business as well. Just like saying that the law should not punish defaulters because they knew that they will err. It’s a matter of sowing and reaping. You’ll reap orange fruits when you sow orange seeds. God won’t change that.

      4. My problem is this. Since He knew of the outcome of the whole scenario, why allowing the whole event to occur. I guess their disobedience has a negative effect on our life today as Christians right?

      5. You won’t be a human if God didn’t allow you to make your choices, you’ll be a hubot (human robot). It’s your choices that have placed you where you are today. God is not impulsive and knows that we know the consequences of all of our actions. The men in the days of Noah we’re destroyed for their choices. Enoch was translated for his deliberate choice to walk with God. What you’re saying is that God should make us do the things that we don’t want to do. Such wouldn’t be life. However, Jesus Christ came to deliver us from that rot, but we still make the same mistake Adam did.

      6. Thanks for your taking to put me through some issues in my Christian life. I understood what you are trying to say. But I still find it difficult to reconcile issues. Take for example, I have the power to see the future of my son that he will be killed by a lion and I can reverse the situation. If I love that son of mine, won’t I do everything possible to safe his life from that danger?

      7. You tell your son if you go out at such a time you’ll be attacked by a lion. It’s your son’s right to choose to not go out at the time or choose to go out there and be attacked. What you’re saying is that you’ll either make the choice of what your son does per time, or manipulate his thinking which is equivalent to witchcraft. That’s not life. However, there are times God helps to keep us safe but not when we choose to be hurt having foreknown the consequences, that’s foolishness.

      8. Well you are right to a large extent. In my own little way, I saw it from a different point of view. Reason been that we are all human beings with weaknesses that make us prone to danger and mistake. The example of my son was an analogy on the fact that God knows everything about us even the things that will happen to us in the future that we don’t know as human beings. Why don’t I save my son from that without him been aware?

      9. Yes. God does help to deliver by forewarning and guidance, but we choose whether or not to obey and avoid the disaster. And even if we have erred, he does save us while experiencing the consequences but at least we do know by experience that the instructions were for our own good. Such is life.

        I think that you should read my latest book which shall be published on the 30th of June, 2019 as a Beta Reader. All you need to do to access the book is supply your email address so I can link you up.

        Thanks.

  3. Thanks for the opportunity. Do hope that the second question will have answer.

    However, God does not determine the outcome of our lives. It’s wholly our prerogative and choice. He only shows us our supposed destinations (destiny), while it’s our right to travel along the path that leads there or not.

      1. Exactly. He determines the destination, while we determine the outcome because we can always choose otherwise, hence, the need for accountability in the end. We wouldn’t render account before God if he were dictating …
