God we have been hearing the name God for a long time and as we are led to know he is the creator the maker the one who existed before every thing and everyone according to (Genesis 1:1) but they have been many controversies stating otherwise. Many scientists have been seen to come up with their own version or definition of how things came to existence, but if you study and observe you will know that there is more to it, you will discover that truly there is a supernatural being and his name is “God” and many people seem to deny that fact, but you can’t deny what you know is actually there, like the Bible says “My people perish for lack of knowledge” this is because we are ignorant of the fact that he is there givimg protection to all that need protection.
As we know the bible says “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God (John 1:1)”. This shows that God was there at the beginning and if we are to examine further using the bible to proof he is the creator (Genesis 1:3,4&5), then God said, “Let there be light and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day”.
According to this scripture above, it shows God supernatural power in the form that he created everything from nothing (Genesis 1:1 to 30) to understand God and follow him is to believe that he created everything, as shown in the scriptures, God is a being of three different embodiment the Father which is “God” the Son which is “Jesus Christ” and the “HolySpirit” serving three different purposes but we should also know that they are one aiming for the same goal.
God sits on the throne which resides in heaven a place where God dwells as seen by prophet Ezekiel in (Ezekiel 1:26) “And above the firmament over their heads was the likeness of a throne, in appearance like a sapphire stone; on the likeness of the throne was a likeness with the appearance of a man high above it”. Which for full understanding we need to read and know how God enabled Ezekiel to see him on his throne, then we have the Messiah Jesus Christ the son of God our Lord and saviour, who died on the cross so that we may have life and have it abundantly in Jesus we have redemption, our sins are forgiven and we are able to have enternal life due to his sacrifice, because of Jesus we are able to cast out demons because he made things easier and simple not like the old days were prophets had to do everything Jesus sacrifice empowers us that we may be able to defend ourselves from the devil.
We also then have the Holyspirit sent from the Father in the name of his Son, the HolySpirit is the father of Jesus and if you are confused the bible said in (Matthew 1:18) “Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the HolySpirit”. The HolySpirit is the edifier the teacher the one who gives understanding, with the HolySpirit we are able to understand God and acknowledge he is there. In full the HolySpirit is the spirit of God, the HolySpirit brings wisdom, counsel, might, knowledge and the fear of the lord. The word fear in the above statement “fear of the lord ” means the HolySpirit helps you do the right thing he tells you the right from wrong the HolySpirit brings an unending presence of both the father and the son.
NOTE: After knowing about God to be the supreme ruler and our creator we should also know he created us for a reason to serve him and worship him but we can only do that with pure heart and believing that Jesus is his son.
How Can You Follow God
To follow God is actually not easy keeping the commandments and many other things attached.
First of all I’ll say know who you are what kind of person are you, are you the jovial type or the quiet type, are you the type that have moods or season, I mean the type of person who can be angry now and the next minute excited are you a person that has the tendency to do bad or good do you like to help, insult , criticize, make promises and fail, mock, party, drink, smoke and whatsoever. Because this traits is what will enable you to know how to approach God and how to follow him.
