But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king:
Why is it when we speak or even quote from the Bible we are always speaking in the past tense? We speak of the God of old but really, He is never really presented as being here with us in present tense.
The same is true with Jesus. We have God hidden away somewhere and when it comes to Jesus, Lord only knows but he’s never here with us and when His name is brought up His name is in the 3rd person.
So I’m not really even arguing the GOD IS DEAD thing, but that God is alive. And since God is alive, where have we hid Him?
We speak of Jesus dwelling on the earth where he performed His ministry for three years, was crucified, buried and arose again where he walked on the earth for 40 days and then ascended into Heaven.
This is all good but now we are to be the light source as the Holy Spirit dwells in us. That is evidence of the Life of God and His son, Jesus. So then, we should not simply be speaking ABOUT God, we should be demonstrating the spirit of God here on earth, now.
I affirm the Living God is here is alive is working and speaking and healing and leading today. The living God has NOT gone away and we should not speak about Him as such. He is more than the God of old, but here now, today and forever.
