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.

Love The Lord Your God With All Your Heart ...!

Love the Lord your God with all your HEART and with all your SOUL and with all your MIGHT (Deuteronomy 6:5)”.
(v.7)“You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.”

This is the most important Command from the Lord our God the creator of heaven and earth to all of His creation.

Before anyone can love God they need to know which God they need to love with all their heart, soul and might, “for some of you have no knowledge of God, I speak this to your shame (1 Cor. 15:34)”.
For the Lord is 'dealing out retribution to those who do not KNOW God and to those who do not obey Him (2 Thes. 1:8)'.

The question is, WHO is this God we ought KNOW and to LOVE?
Is it Jehovah? Is it Yahweh? Is it those three god-persons called the trinity? Is it Allah? Is it Krishna? Is it Buddha or is it Jesus Christ who is called the LORD?

There is NO neutral position to this command, and neither can you love all of them, you will either love the one and hate the other (Matthew 6:24).
Jesus said, that is written in the Law, “HOW DOES IT READ TO YOU ?” (Luke 10 :26)

Does it read to you that you can love a god called Yahweh AND also the Lord Jesus Christ?
Or does the Bible teach that you can love three god-persons?
To the contrary, 1 Corinthians 16:22 “If anyone does not love the Lord Jesus Christ , he is to be accursed”.

In the Scriptures we can see that there is only ONE true God and that is the Lord Jesus Christ (1 John 5:20), and apart from the Lord Jesus Christ was NO OTHER God formed (Isa.43:10).
Isaiah himself called the Lord Jesus Christ the Mighty God (Isa. 9:6).
And Thomas called the Lord Jesus Christ, “My Lord and my GOD!' (John 20:28).

Is there another Mighty God called Jehovah or Yahweh or Allah etc.??
Or, are there three God-persons who together are one God, called a trinity?
Or, are each one of those God-persons a separate individual God?
In how many gods do you believe?
And in which ONE God do you believe?
What is the Name of your God, or the Names of your many gods?
Or do you believe in a God who is unknowable?
A God with NO Name?
Perhaps a higher POWER?

Thus sayeth the Lord, Come now, and let us reason together ( Isa. 1:18).
It is better for you to answer those questions here on my blog than on JUDGEMENT day.
“Behold, NOW is the Accepted time; behold, NOW is the day of salvation.” (2 Cor. 6:2).

ALL comments are welcome. Don't be afraid, the knowledge of God is the salvation of your soul.
