Who is God and Who am I – Your Conscience Knows
The two most important questions a person can ask are: who is God and who am I? Both questions are related because, the God who created you has a purpose for your life. Deep inside your heart, you have a hope for greatness. You desire to love and be loved. You desire true peace, joy, and happiness. You desire eternal Life. These desires came from your Creator. You know that there must be more to life than your current situation.
THE STORY OF YOU
The Bible says that you, as a human being are created in the image of God. That makes you special above all of God’s other creations in the cosmos. God made you a little lower than Himself, because He desires relationship with you.
When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained; What is man that You take thought of him, And the son of man that You care for him? Yet You have made him a little lower than God, And You crown him with glory and majesty! You make him to rule over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet, (Psalms 8:3-6 NASB).
You began as a desire of God, your Father. He thought of thought of you and He formed you. You are created unique from everyone else in the world because God desired to love someone just like you and be loved by you.
One day two cells came together from two different people, and in an instant the two cells became a new and unique new cell; with a new DNA blueprint that only you have. In that same instant God breathed His Spirit, the spark of life into you and you became a living soul. Together your Spirit (breath of life), soul, and body make up you.
Your eyes saw me when I was formless; all my days were written in Your book and planned before a single one of them began. (Psalms 139:16 HCSB)
This means that God planned your life and destiny, for good. Only what is eternally good comes from God. However, He created man with a free will, just like Him. This gives you the power to choose to love Him or reject Him. Love without choice is not love. Man was not created to know evil. In Heaven there is no evil, nothing bad, and no pain.
You were born into a fallen world because of the sin of Adam. However, God’s plan for you is eternal and that is why He sent Jesus to come to earth and pay the penalty of sin for you. Through Jesus Christ, Our Father has provided a Way for you to be free from sin, free from the affects of sin, and reconciled back into a holy relationship with God, our Father. If you choose to believe and trust Him.
Life on earth is very difficult sometimes. However, God has never left you and He has prepared a Way of escape. Jesus came to set us free from the limitations of this world. Yeshua [Jesus] said to him, “I AM THE LIVING GOD, The Way and The Truth and The Life; no man comes to my Father but by me alone.” (John 14:6) Jesus Christ is Truth.
You are so intimately aware of me, Lord. You read my heart like an open book and you know all the words I’m about to speak before I even start a sentence! You know every step I will take before my journey even begins. You’ve gone into my future to prepare the way, and in kindness you follow behind me to spare me from the harm of my past. With your hand of love upon my life, you impart a blessing to me. This is just too wonderful, deep, and incomprehensible! Your understanding of me brings me wonder and strength. (Psalm 139:3-6 TPT)
SPIRIT SOUL BODY
The Bible says that we are Spirit, soul and body. We live in a physical body which is the most complicated and advanced physical technology in the universe. The Bible often refers to the heart of man which, is inside the soul or the soul itself. The heart is the control center of your life and your consciousness. In your heart is your will, mind, emotions, imagination, and conscience. Your conscience is your inner guide for right and wrong. Your conscience is conscious of receiving from your Spirit, your life essence.
But there is a Spirit in man, And the breath of the Almighty gives him understanding. (Job 32:8)
Inside your soul is the Spirit, it is the Spirit that gives you life. Without the Spirit the soul dies. The Spirit is from God and is your life source. Then the LORD said, “My Spirit shall not live in and contend with man forever, because he also is flesh; nevertheless his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” (Genesis 6:3)
The word contend above, means to judge, strive with, and plead with. This means that God has set a time limit for the life of man. The Spirit is in a person, pleading with the soul to be reconciled to God. Your desire to know God is your conscience perceiving from your Spirit.
In the Bible, “conscience” also means “co-perception”. Your conscience is where you perceive truth, God’s truth, what He believes. Deception is when a person believes something that is not truth, something that God does not believe is true. Deception causes darkness in the heart of man. All sin comes from deception. God has given us the Holy Bible, the written Word of God as a foundation for what God believes.
For the word of God is living and energetic, and much sharper than a double-edged sword, and it pierces to the separation of soul and spirit and of joints, marrow and of bones, and judges the reasoning and conscience of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12)
You cannot get away from your conscience, but you can reject it and ignore it to the point that you lose consciousness of your conscience. At that point, you have lost consciousness of the One who gave you life. The Bible calls this a hardened heart. The modern term for a person who has lost all consciousness of their conscience is a sociopath.
The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God shines in them, for God has revealed it to them. (Romans 1:18-19)
The truth about God is not hidden from you. It is in you, and all around you. The creation illustrates it, the Holy Bible declares it, and it is inside your heart, in your conscience. A person can deceive themselves into thinking they are enjoying life but, in reality they are using up their temporary life; choosing death in so many ways.
It really all comes down to choosing life or death. To choose life is to choose the One who is Life. Any other choice is not eternal life. Only in union with Jesus Christ is there eternal life. To deny Jesus Christ is to deny your very own life-essence and existence.
Jesus answered him, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that unless a person is born again (anew, from above), he cannot ever see (know, be acquainted with, and experience) the kingdom of God. (John 3:3 AMPC)
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only and unique Son, so that everyone who trusts in Him may have eternal life, instead of being utterly destroyed.” (John 3:16 CJB)
Spiritual transformation begins with believing in Jesus Christ, putting your trust in Him. Spiritual maturity continues through relationship with God, not just knowing about Him, but knowing Him, experiencing Him.
Your conscience knows your sins. Only the sacrifice that Jesus made on the cross by shedding His blood for you, can purify your conscience from sin and death, (Hebrews 9:14). Christ became sin for you and gave His life for you so that you can be the righteousness of God in Him, (2nd Corinthians 5:21). Choose to believe and trust Him.
If you would like to give your life to Jesus Christ and be united with Him and our Father go to You Must be Born from Above.
