"How do we seek God? "
From: The Elder:
The question is, are we to seek God, or let men sell us Him?
The choice that God gives us is this John 3:16
Old Church of God of the new Covenant -
1 Cor. 1:2- Gal. 1:13- Heb. 8:1-13- Eph. 2:15-21- Jer. 31:31.

In the book of John, chapter 4, verse 24, we read:
"God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship
him in spirit and in truth. "
Since God is Spirit, we must come to Him in Spirit, that is, in prayer.
But the Bible has much more to say on this subject.. .
The Lord says in John 6:63,
".. . the words that I speak unto you are spirit.. . "
Isaiah 55:1-3 says,
"Ho, everyone that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he
that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy
wine and milk without money and without price.
Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread?
and your labor for that which satisfieth not? hearken
diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your
soul delight itself in fatness.
Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall
Live, and I will make an everlasting covenant with you,... "

Notice the last statement of this passage,
"Incline your ear and come unto me.. . "
This passage is saying that we come unto Him by simply coming unto His Word.
Notice the very next phrase,
"hear, and your soul shall live" Remember to read Romans 10:17 then one can understand how to have more faith.

The Lord says this because, in John 1:1, we read: so in this Jesus is the only salvation for this world. This Jesus is God’s choice to be the savior. God sent His own son for you, so we can have and be what He says we are and go where He says a saved person can go after this life.
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God. "
then, in the same chapter, verse 14, He says:
John 1:14
"And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we
beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the
Father) full of grace and truth. "

These passages are speaking of a very profound truth. They are saying that the
person of the Lord Jesus Christ is the Word. Notice that these verses together say
that, "the Word" who is God (vs 1) was "made flesh" (vs 14). In the book of
Revelations, chapter 19, verse 13, speaks of Jesus and says:
".. . his name is called the Word of God. "
Since Jesus, in a profound and spiritual way, is the Word of God, it makes perfect
A sense that we can come to God by simply coming to His Word. As we bow down our
ear and hear (or read) what His Word says, we are communing with the Almighty.
We are worshiping Him with our attention. We are coming to God and we are
partaking of Christ. Just as Jesus is our savior, as the Bible declares, God uses His
Word to save us. Here are some verses which show this:
1 Peter 1:23
James 1:18
James 1:21
Ephesians 1:13
Romans 10:17
John 6:63
This particular truth will be discussed much more as the construction of this web
site progresses. My heart now echoes to you the words of that Isaiah 55: 3 passage:
"incline your ear and come.. . (unto Jesus) hear, and your soul
shall live"

I hope and pray that you can taste and see that the Lord is gracious. He is so good,
to know Him is life. There really is no greater joy, and to be apart from Him is
Death.
Until Next Time: Stay safe always pray to God, not at Him, Pray about everything in your life.
