Puritan Belief

The Puritans are the men of God who started in the 16th century building on the purity of the gospel message that Salvation is by Grace alone.

Serious Questions to Consider !

GENESES 1:1 “In the beginning 'GOD'....”!

If the GODin Genesis 1:1 is NOT the Lord Jesus Christ, then who is that God ?
Is theGOD of the Old Testament the same God as the God of the New Testament ?
Who is the God of the Old Testament ? And what is His Name ?
Who is the God" of the New Testament ? And what is His Name ?

If you believe that the God of the Old Testament is a different person to the God of the New testament, then you believe in 'two gods' and you are a polytheist.
Even worse, if you believe that God is THREE persons, then you are a TRINITARIAN polytheist and stand condemned before the only ONE and TRUE God Jesus Christ the Lord (Jude 25 and 1 John 5:20).

If you believe that God is three persons and those three persons 'equal' or 'are' one God, then you have been deceived by the devil and you desperately need to know the God of Genesis 1:1 who has created the heavens and earth and everything in it (John 1:3).

The God of Genesis 1:1 said, 'I am the Lord your God, I change not (Malachi 3:6), I am the same, yesterday today and forever (Hebr. 13:8).'

Therefore Jesus said, 'if you do not know that I am He, (the God of Genesis 1:1) you will die in your sins (John 8:24).
The importance of believing in the Lord Jesus Christ alone is, 'that whosoever believes in the Lord Jesus Christ shall NOT perish, but have eternal life (John 3:16)', and whosoever will not believe shall be condemned (John 3:18 and Jude 1:5)'.

The importance of knowing 'GOD' and that 'God' must be the Lord Jesus Christ and no other, is to escape the vengeance of the Lord in judgement.
(2 Thes, 1:8) 'dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.'
This passage makes it clear that anyone who believes in God must KNOW Him, not just merely know about God.
Knowing God is to believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the ONLY true God (John 17:3) and whosoever does not believe that Jesus Christ is the only God of all creation will die in their sins (John 8:24).
Knowing God is to know that the living God Jesus Christ has made His abode with you, just as He has promised (John 14:28) “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come and make our abode with him”.

How many god-persons have made their abode with you ?
Has the Lord Jesus made His abode with you ?
How do you know whether the Lord Jesus Christ has made His abode with you ?

Please let me hear your thoughts.
It's better to know now, than not at all.
You can't lose anything you haven't got.
