Jesus Is the Reason:

Testimonies for the glory of God



The Bible describes God’s appearance as a brilliant light because there is no darkness in Him at all (1 John 1:5). … God is completely good and pure in His dealings with mankind. This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. The New Testament enunciates no new God and no new doctrine of God. It proclaims that the God and Father of Jesus Christ is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of earlier covenants. God is traditionally described as a being that possesses at least three necessary properties: omniscience (all-knowing), omnipotence (all-powerful), omnipresence (all-presence), and omnibenevolence (supremely good). In other words, God knows everything, has the power to do anything, He is everywhere, and is perfectly good.

Jesus Christ:
The five major milestones in the New Testament narrative of the life of Jesus are his Baptism, Transfiguration, Crucifixion, Resurrection and Ascension. ... After the death of John the Baptist and the Transfiguration, Jesus starts his final journey to Jerusalem, having predicted his own death there. The Gospel describes Jesus' message as the gospel. Jesus challenges people to "repent and believe the gospel." In between, Jesus proclaims "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is near." That core announcement -- "It's time, and God is breaking into the world" -- that is the core of Jesus' own gospel.

Holy Spirit:
The Holy Spirit speaks to the hearts and minds of people to show them that they are sinners, and in need of God's Righteousness and that there will be a day of judgment. Once we are saved, the Holy Spirit takes up residence in our hearts sealing us with the assurance of our soul's eternal state. The Holy Spirit, also known as the Holy Ghost, is an aspect or agent of God, by means of which God communicates with people or acts on them. In Judaism, it refers to the divine force, quality, and influence of God over the universe or over his creatures. The doctrine of the Trinity is the Christian belief that: There is One God, who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Holy Trinity – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and is Almighty God. As such he is personal, also fully God, co-equal and co-eternal with God the Father and Son of God.

Abraham. The patriarch of the Hebrew people. ...

What did Abraham's prayers reveal about his belief about God? Abraham believes that God does not tolerate sin, but God will judge rightly, and God is merciful. 
He never stopped believing God's promise, for he was made strong in his faith to father a child. ... What we can learn from Abraham is that his focus was on God's power to fulfill his promises and not on the circumstances he was facing. Abraham knew that God was willing and able to keep every promise he made to Abraham.

Eve: First Woman Created by God. …

Eve is created from one of Adam’s ribs to be his companion. Thank You Lord! They are innocent and unembarrassed about their nakedness.  However, a serpent convinces Eve to eat fruit from the forbidden tree, (I am sorry, Lord!) She gives some of the fruit to Adam. These acts not only give them additional knowledge, but it gives them the ability to conjure negative and destructive concepts such as  shame and  evil. God later curses the serpent and the ground. (Forgive me, Lord). God prophetically tells the woman and the man what will be the consequences of their sin of disobeying God. Then he banishes them from the Garden of Eden. Thank You, God for making a way for us to live with You again.
