With the sited scriptures below, if Jesus is God as many seem to believe, then does that mean he ascended into heaven and sat to the right hand of himself? Does it mean he is talking in the third person all the time? That would be very confusing to people. They never have been that, satan is the God of confusion. As difficult as it may be for many of you to swallow, there are many scriptures like this that show this same type of information. Please go read it for yourself and ask Jesus and His Father Jehovah to show you and allow you to feel their truth. They are entities of awesome common sense and they are very direct & literal. Yes, there may be some symbolism in the bible, but for the most part, all the commandments (which are meant for us to follow and have a “happy long life”) and who Jesus and His father are are right there in Black & White.
As i have stated before, this is not up for debate, this is what i get from Jesus and His Father Jehovah every day. It is my belief and my job given by them to extend it out. It is your choice to believe it or not. But here, on this site, it will not be debated.
In Jesus’s name i pray and ask him to show you his truth. Amen
Mark 16:19 from the NLT (New Living translation) Bible.
19) When the Lord Jesus had finished talking with them, he was taken up into heaven and sat down in the place of honor at God’s right hand.
And yet again from the King James version:
Mark 16:19 as seen in the 1769 King James Version.
19) So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
– 1769 Oxford King James Bible “Authorized Version”
NLT BIble: JESUS TEACHING ABOUT PRAYER AND FASTING MATTHEW 6:5-13
5 “When you pray, don’t be like the hypocrites who love to pray publicly on street corners and in the synagogues where everyone can see them. I tell you the truth, that is all the reward they will ever get. 6 But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private. Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.
7 “When you pray, don’t babble on and on as people of other religions do. They think their prayers are answered merely by repeating their words again and again.8 Don’t be like them, for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him! 9 Pray like this:
Our Father in heaven,
may your name be kept holy.
10 May your Kingdom come soon.
May your will be done on earth,
as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today the food we need,
12 and forgive us our sins,
as we have forgiven those who sin against us.
13 And don’t let us yield to temptation,*
but rescue us from the evil one.
Again JESUS TEACHING ABOUT PRAYER AND FASTING MATTHEW 6:5-13 You may not believe this BUT, from the New World Translation Bible (Jehovah’s Witnesses) we find the same truth in Matthew 6:5-13. Yes, they believe very much in Jesus Christ and salvation through Him too. If Jesus is God, then why does He so many times in the New Testament refer back to the Father in Heaven.
5 “Also, when YOU pray, YOU must not be as the hypocrites; because they like to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the broad ways to be visible to men. Truly I say to YOU, They are having their reward in full. 6 You, however, when you pray, go into your private room and, after shutting your door, pray to your Father who is in secret; then your Father who looks on in secret will repay you. 7 But when praying, do not say the same things over and over again, just as the people of the nations do, for they imagine they will get a hearing for their use of many words. 8 So, do not make yourselves like them, for God YOUR Father knows what things YOU are needing before ever YOU ask him.
9 “YOU must pray, then, this way:
“‘Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified. 10 Let your kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also upon earth. 11 Give us today our bread for this day; 12 and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13 And do not bring us into temptation, but deliver us from the wicked one.’
14 “For if YOU forgive men their trespasses, YOUR heavenly Father will also forgive YOU; 15 whereas if YOU do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will YOUR Father forgive YOUR trespasses.
There are numerous instances throughout the Bible such as those above. I could go on and on and i most likely will in future blogs as this is massively important.
Bottom line is this though, as long as you believe in Jesus and do as best you humanly can to do what is stated in the bible, doing all you can to not repeat past bad behaviors, then you are good to go. But, yes the “but” is, there are many rules, commandments that Jesus himself states he did not come to change. Look for that statement yourself in the New Testament or you can see my blog about it here where the scripture is sited.
I strongly encourage you to read the Old Testament if you have never before and to read it again even though you have for years.
