I have several directions to go this morning. I had been thinking about getting a small laptop, something portable, maybe to do Bible studies and to connect on the Internet. I did not find anything small enough, or cheap enough... I did find an Android Tablet that was less expensive and with a keyboard case. This is better for me then trying to type on a screen. I will see if it will do what I want. No, it will not connect to chats, but it has other features that are useful including camera and video.
Lisa sent me a note and got me to thinking about the Trinity. The Bible shows God as all powerful, someone to fear, a consuming fire. The Old testament required that we obey or pay by the judgement of God. Jesus came to take our judgement upon himself. God came in the Son, a friendly approachable God, that was touched and had feelings of love and mercy for us. This is God in all his grace for all who would believe in him. The Holy Spirit is God invisible. The presence of God as a wind, but whose presence brought miracles and truth; the world desperately needs truth. Through Jesus we are filled by the Holy Spirit, we fear and reverence our Father who invites us into his presence as adopted children. Jesus is our approachable Saviour and High Priest who has experienced suffering and death as a human. We have a God with a loving heart who cares for his people. What happened to the consuming God?
He is still there to take vengeance on those who chose to go there own way, doing evil and harming the people of God. God is approachable through Jesus, for all people. Come to the friendly God and Saviour and do not fall into the fire of God and eternal hell. Hell? Yes, hell is where sinners go who have not been covered by the sacrificial blood of Jesus Christ. He died for you to keep you from hell.
Hopefully the Android will be a blessing and hopefully you will trust in Jesus and stay out of Hell.
Heb 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
Heb 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.
