The God of the Shemitah

It is an insult to the One True God to claim He is a mishmash of all the notions of "god" that man has made up over the eons. (Tweet that!)

He is not Allah of Islam.

He is not Buddah.

He is not all the objects of any or all the other religions or their combined or separate notions or understandings of God.

There is only one God. There is God the Father who is in heaven. God came to earth to reveal himself to humans and He was Jesus, who is God the Son. The spirit of God is the Holy Spirit. (Tweet that!)

This is one God.

Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. (Deuteronomy 6:4-5, NIV. See also where Jesus quoted this verse in Mark 12:29.)

On my April 21, 2015, post, I had a comment-er express the idea that we all worship the same God, even using the "saying," as she called it, in Deuteronomy 6:4: "The Lord our God, the Lord is one."

This is the very spiritual confusion I talked about in that very post.

There is only one God. He revealed Himself to humankind by revealing Himself to the family of Abraham, Isaac, and then Jacob-Israel. (Tweet that!)

How can we possibly know this is the true God and the one and only God? Because He continues to reveal Himself in unique ways and then "fulfills" that revelation. (Tweet that!) For example, He created the Shemitah. And then He not only enforces the Shemitah, as we can see in history, but He continues to reveal Himself in the Shemitah. (Tweet that!)  

Take, for example, what has happened on the previous two Shemitahs. If you don't know what happened, you can see it in this post: Introduction to the "Shemitah" (October 21, 2014).

You can believe the One True God was behind what happened or you can doubt it. (Tweet that!)

You can believe the God of the Shemitah will reveal more of Himself in this coming Shemitah or you can doubt it. (Tweet that!)

As for me, I believe the God of the Shemitah is the One and Only True God. (Tweet that!)
