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.

To Whom Do You Pray ?

To whom do you pray ? Or to which God do you pray ?
Because there are so many gods in the world, and everyone believes that their god is the right and true god, therefore it is of great importance for you to know to which God you are praying.

Some people pray to Yahweh, others pray to Jehovah, Allah, Krishna and numerous other gods.
Christian people are no different, they pray through Jesus to a god called Yahweh or Jehovah whom they call Father, and then they say a formula, 'in Jesus name'.
Others pray to the dead saints and to the holy mother of god (Mary).

Therefore the question remains, to whom do you pray ?
Which one of all those gods do you think is going to listen to your prayer ?
Which one has ears to hear ?

In the Scriptures, the Lord Jesus Christ said, “When you pray, say, “Our Father who art in heaven, Holy be thy Name …...” (Matthew 6:9 and Luke 11:2).
WHICH name is Holy ?
Is the name Yahweh Holy ? Or is the name Jehovah Holy ? What about 'Allah', is his name Holy ? Or the mother of Jesus, Mary, is her name Holy?
Those are all names of gods whom churches and individuals worship and keep Holy.

Throughout all the ages are people and church denominations who believe that 'Son' is a name, or 'Father' is a name and even 'God' and 'Holy Spirit' are names.
I think it is impossible for anyone with that kind of assumption to understand anything of the Scriptures.

The Lord Jesus Christ said, when you pray, you ought to pray to your Father and keep His NAME Holy.

The Name of the Father is 'JESUS' ! (John 17:6)
If the Lord Jesus Christ is NOT your Father, then He also is NOT your God, and you will pray to one of those gods who are NOT God.

If you pray to Jehovah, Allah, Yahweh, Mary or any titles of deity's, they surely CANNOT hear you.
Only the Lord Jesus Christ the creator of heaven and earth, who is our Lord and God and Father can and will hear our prayers.

(Rev. 4:8) the four living creatures unceasingly say, “HOLY, HOLY, HOLY is the Lord God, THE ALMIGHTY, WHO WAS AND IS AND IS TO COME.”

(Rev. 4:10 – 11) the twenty four elders will worship Him who lives forever and ever. So be it !

What do you think ?
Do you have any other ideas ?
