Jesus is the container of God, like water in a pitcher. St. Paul said Jesus is “the image”, the face of the invisible God.
“Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:” – Colossians 1:15 (KJV)
Imagine someone standing behind a thin curtain pressing his facial features into the curtain. The curtain is Jesus. Or a mask of someone’s face. Jesus is the living mask of the invisible God. No one else ever was that perfect image, that perfect mask. That perfect visible copy of God.
The Greek New Testament says, that Jesus is the “LOGO” of God, translated into English as the WORD of God, translated into Chinese as “DAO”. Right! The ‘Dao’ from Daoism or Taoism. It is all in the translation! Translation is finding the right WORD to cover the intrinsic meaning. Likewise Jesus is the perfect “TRANSLATION” of God to Man.
“I invisible God, you visible man, you don’t understand! You need some One to help you see, Me! Invisible Me! I need a glass container to pour my invisible water into, a balloon to pump mu invisible gas, my Self, into a form! So you can see, in order to conceive, to understand, to grasp my Eternal being.”
Jesus is God’s television, broadcast from afar. The perfect vision of Him. There is no other vision of God that was so perfect. Continue reading “Jesus – “The Beginning of the Creation of God.” – Rev. 3:14″
By Charles Haddon Spurgeon [John 10:9]
Jesus, the great I AM, is the entrance into the true church, and the way of access to God himself. He gives to the man who comes to God by him four choice privileges.
1. He shall be saved. The fugitive manslayer passed the gate of the city of refuge, and was safe. Noah entered the door of the ark, and was secure. None can be lost who take Jesus as the door of faith to their souls. Entrance through Jesus into peace is the guarantee of entrance by the same door into heaven. Jesus is the only door, an open door, a wide door, a safe door; and blessed is he who rests all his hope of admission to glory upon the crucified Redeemer. Continue reading ““I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.””

聖經和上帝先知的話語，才是世上唯一真正的報紙或新聞雜誌！所有新聞或報紙告訴你的全是些已發生過的事情，因此它們並不真是刊載新聞的報紙，而是刊 載歷史的報紙！但是聖經告訴我們有關明日將會發生的事。聖經有數以千計敘述詳情的預言，實際在敘述一些特別指定的人物、地點、時間、情況和事件，它們在事 情發生的數千年以前就已被預言了！（請讀以賽亞書34:16;42:9;彼得後書1:19-21）
聖經中有許多預言，在敘述這個世界歷史 的最後一段時期，也就是耶穌再回來，終止今日所有不公平的事，在世上建立祂自己的愛與和平的王國之前的那段時期。那是人類的王國在這地球上統治的最後時 期，聖經稱為「末世」、「末後的日子」、「末時」等等。你我現在就正生活在這段時間裡！（請讀但以理書2:28;8:23;12:4） Continue reading “你想要知道你的未來嗎？Would You Like To Know Your Future?”
The article points critiqued below by us appeared on various New Age websites, and we will take it to the woodshed. This is the main leading quote: ‘Religion is belief in someone else’s experience. Spirituality is having your own experience’ – Deepak Chopra
OUR TRANSLATION: “Faith in Jesus Christ is religion and out! New Age is real spirituality and IN! (Old hat!) Chopra means to say that:
- you have to experience your own spiritual universe by your own efforts.
- instead of trusting & respecting your Creator, you ought to ignore or deny Him by producing your own righteousness by spiritual or self-religious works. IOW: Self worship rather than GOD worship!
“Telling people you are spiritual but not religious is often greeted with a confused face. People tend to think of spirituality as something very strange and mysterious. They even struggle to differentiate it from religion but this is only because people in modern-day society have a fear of being manipulated and have a lack of knowledge when it comes to non-material subjects. The truth of the matter is that spirituality is perhaps the most natural thing there is, it is simply your own conscious-self recognizing that you are more than just a body, that you are a soul with infinite potential.
OUR TRANSLATION: Lots of religious people — God worshippers! — still view and reject New Age as a deception &/or false doctrine, and rightly so, while the writer is trying to win souls for self-worship which opens the door for rebel angels & their cronies to access your heart and mind & spirit!

Jesus and the Father are ONE, but they are different personalities. The Word calls Him “the Ancient of Days”, whereas Jesus is the Son of God. Jesus is the FACE of God, St. Paul said.
