“The Creator” Selma’s Pulpit

 By Selma Oetker

I praise God for the beauty of His creation, especially the flowers. The seemingly infinite variety of flowers, with all their beautiful colors and scents, could only come from the Hand of an All-Powerful Creator.

Gen. 1:1 in the Protestant Christian Bible Old Testament says

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. creation-heaven-and-earth1

There is ONLY ONE TRUE GOD, the God of the Protestant Christian Bible.

This Bible is the ONLY TRUE REVELATION OF GOD! In this same Bible we read:

Genesis 1:11 KJV – And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. Genesis 1:12 KJV – And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Colossians 1:16 KJV – For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him.

I love flowers, and Norman blesses me frequently with beautiful bouquets. (If you desire, you can enjoy them also, as he has posted them on our website.)

 I believe flowers are an expression of God’s love for mankind, just as the bouquets Norman gives me are an expression of his love for me.

 But there is a MUCH GREATER expression of God’s Love, that is told in the Protestant Christian Bible New Testament Book of John.

John 3:16 KJV – For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:17 KJV – For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

God’s only begotten Son, in verse 16 is Jesus.

God is a Spirit Being, a Spiritual Substance, Three-Persons-in One, known as The Trinity; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, all equal in power.

God loves the world, that is, all people, so much, that He wants everyone to be saved.

That means that God does not want anyone to go to hell, but has made a way for everyone to go to heaven.

That “Way” is through repentance and faith in Jesus.

Jesus said in the Protestant Christian Bible New Testament:

John 14:6 KJV – Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:

no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Repentance is making a decision to turn your heart and will to God, surrendering control of your life to Him, and obeying the teachings of Jesus, the Apostles, and evangelists in the Protestant Christian Bible New Testament.

2 Peter 3:9 KJV – The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

God is longing for you to turn to him in repentance. HE LOVES YOU!

However, you have to make a choice.

HELL IS REAL!

So is Heaven!

If you don’t make a conscious decision to choose Heaven by repenting, then by default you choose Hell!

THINK ABOUT IT!
