GOD ALONE IS GOD, GOD ALONE IS SAVIOUR
I became upset in the wee hours of this Sabbath morning. I was made to contemplate on the pantheistic doctrine of Lucifer in another way.
We had an experience in our home this week, where we had to call in the plumber. He came and he assessed the situation and knew exactly what needed to be done. Unfortunately he had to go and return to do the job. Nevertheless the job was done, the problem was fixed, and there was no more leakage of water or stench from the toilet. My experience from the night before was horrible with the stench taking over our bathroom. But when I used it in the wee hours of this morning there was no more stench, no more leakage. J I sat there and said wow, it is fixed.
Then I thought, if man can fix problems, why God cannot fix our problem? Why God cannot stop us from sinning? I saw through this experience that it is a horrible thing to deny the fact that God can fix us, that God can rightify us, that God can rectify the problem of man. For if we can have confidence in man to fix our broken sewerage, if we can have confidence in man to fix our vehicle, if we can have confidence in man to fix our computer and he can do it, why can we not believe the truth that God who created man can stop him from sinning? Is creation wiser than God? Is creation more than God? Is creation God? No! Yet, this would be the logical reasoning if we doubt that God can make his creation sinfree (sin being the problem of man) and man can fix that which he has made.
Your plumber comes and assesses the damage; he knows exactly what the problem is and what needs to be applied, which part needs to be replaced. He replaces it or he applies the remedy, the problem is fixed. And God cannot even fix your sin problem? This is sick, dark, satanic reasoning! To doubt that God can literally save us from sin is sick reasoning; this would mean that man is wiser than his Maker Job 4:17. But creation is creation and God is God alone.
To you doubters, let me inform you that God has properly assessed the problem of man, what causes him to malfunction and has already given the science or the dynamics as to how to fix man. Man’s malfunctioning begins in his mind, when his consciousness was altered, “And when the woman saw that the tree [was] good for food, and that it [was] pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make [one] wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.” Genesis 3:6
Christ knew this is the problem of man hence, he said, that which cometh out of the man defiles the man “And he said, that which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.” Mark 7:20-23 Christ actually told the Jews what needed to be done to fix the problem of sinning, “Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.” Matthew 23:26. So, look Christ our Saviour has assessed the damage done and has given a proper assessment as how man can be fixed. A cleansing from within first, which is a cleansing of the mind. God does not expect us to repair ourselves, it is impossible! He does the repairs, he washes us, he sanctifies us, he justifies us in the name of Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God, causing us to cease from sin. “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-11
This sanctification, justification and washing, is making holy the man, which is a spiritual rebirth, a spiritual renovation, a messianic restoration. “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” Titus 3:5-7. God fixes the problem and he tells us we must reckon ourselves as been fixed. “Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:11
The sin of denying God His God aloneness is a horrible sin. Words cannot express the horribleness of this sin, my friend, man/creation is not wiser than His maker, man is not more righteous than his marker, and man is not God with God. It is our maker who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth, and maketh us wiser than the fowls of heaven Job 35:11. Why not put your trust and confidence in Him who has made you, instead of man? How can man fix that which he has made and God cannot rid us (His creation) of the problem of sin? Why doubt sinfreeness, the gift of God and put confidence in a plumber, a mechanic, and a small engine repair technician to assess the damaged item and get the job done and get it done perfectly. But our Creator the all wise God, we doubt His Godaloneness, that He is Saviour, saying we cannot be sinfree. He can and does deal with the problem of man accurately as shown in the verses above, my friend. Don’t view Him as powerless to handle sin any more, have an enlightened view of the power of God to save, reject the backward, dark, satanic idea that God cannot deal with sin and accept the pure, unadulterated truths of the scriptures for salvation from sin.
Please my dear friend, trust in God, He can save you; He can save you from your sins now, today. The Gospel of Christ is the science of God unto salvation. Christ will teach you, he will teach you how to maintain the spiritual renovation that has taken place in your life, when you believe that God is savior. Do not deny Christ of His Godaloneness; He alone is savior from sin.
“I,even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.” Isaiah 43:11.

Indeed sis if we sit and contemplate the things of God,we will see that it is only God Who can restore us, fix us, put us in a place where we can see that we have now been rightified. The problem with false doctrine is that the teach tjah creation is God is with God and that we don't nees fixing and all people have to focus on is getting rich. May YUH H continue to fix us with His truth.

Amen...and may we be willing to accept the work that the Husbandman is doing for us to make us white and keep us apart of His Remnant Church.
