2.0.0: Creation was The First Step in MANKIND Having Extra-Divine Knowledge, BECAUSE: A SPIRITUAL GOD Must REVEAL HIMSELF to us before we can KNOW of HIM.

 Why Studying God

is Different

Than All Other Science.

Creation was The First Step

in MANKIND

Having Extra-Divine Knowledge,

Regarding

ANYTHING

ABOUT THE ETERNAL GOD

of THE UNIVERSE,

BECAUSE:

A SPIRITUAL GOD

Must REVEAL HIMSELF to us,

before we can KNOW of HIM.

From the definition of

“Theology”,

( “Theo” = God + “Ology” = Science; 

or any branch of knowledge )

meaning:

“Science about God”

we also must realize that

“Theology”

or

The Science about God

is

Based On

Revelation.

In scientifically

dealing with impersonal objects

( other than “God”)

we take the first step

when we are studying them;

and

those objects that we are studying

are passive,

and just sit there

while, we are active;

we handle them, look at them,

we experiment with them.

But for us to OBSERVE a Spiritual,

Personal Being,

  such as

The ONE and ONLY,

TRUE and LIVING,

CREATOR GOD of The UNIVERSE,

this is different.

OUR STUDY of  a

Spiritual,

Personal Being

WILL ONLY TAKE PLACE,

WHEN GOD

Chooses to Open HIMSELF UP

 FOR US to Know HIM.

All Spiritual Life is

by its Very Nature

A Hidden Life,

A Life Shut Up Within its

Spiritual Existence.

We can Come to Know

Such a 

Spiritual Life and Existence

 Only through

Spiritually Imparted

Revelation

from

GOD,

WHO is SPIRIT.

Since this is true between men,

how much more must if be so

as between God and man.

The BIBLICAL PASSAGE

regarding

The Principle Involved

for us to say

Theology,

as The Science about God,

is Based on

Revelation

has been strikingly formulated by Paul:

‘Because who among men

knows the things of a man,

except the spirit of the man

which is in him?

even so

The Things of God

none Knows,

Except

The Spirit of God’

[1 Corinthians 2.11].

ANY PORTION

of

The Inward Hidden

SPIRITUAL Content

of God’s Mind

can become the Possession of man

Only through a Voluntary Disclosure

on God’s Part.

God Must Come to us

before we can Go to Him.

But God is not JUST

a Personal Spiritual Being

in General.

He is a

Personal Spiritual Being

Infinitely Exalted

Above our Highest Conception.

Suppose it were possible

for one human spirit

to penetrate directly

into another human spirit:

it would still be impossible

for the spirit of man

to penetrate into

the Spirit of God.

This emphasizes the Necessity

of God’s Opening Up to us

The Mystery of His Nature,

before we Can Acquire

any Knowledge Concerning Him.

Indeed,

we can go one step farther still.

In all scientific study

we exist alongside of the objects

which we investigate.

But in Theology

the relation

between “us” and

“What” we are Studying

is reversed.

..

Originally

God Alone Existed.

He was Known to Himself Alone,

and

God Alone

Had to First Call into Being

a Created Human Creature ( Adam )

before any Extraneous Knowledge

( by ANYTHING ELSE )

with Regard to Him became Possible.

Therefore,

Creation

of

The First Man

was God’s First Step

in

The Production

of Anything or Anyone

Having

Extra-Divine Knowledge,

of The Self-Existent,

ETERNAL GOD

of The Universe.

 …

GOD HAD

to CREATE PEOPLE, FIRST,

so:

Creation was The First Step

in MANKIND

Having Extra-Divine Knowledge,

Regarding

ANYTHING

ABOUT THE ETERNAL GOD

of THE UNIVERSE,

THEN:

THE ONE and ONLY,

TRUE and SPIRITUAL GOD

Has to Also:

REVEAL HIMSELF to us,

SPIRITUALLY

before we can KNOW of HIM

SPIRITUALLY.

1 Corinthians 2:14;

“But the natural man”

( or the Individual

Human Being that

GOD HAS CREATED,

and yet is born,

naturally into this life,

Dead Spiritually,

as the result of us ALL being

a decedent

of The First man Created, Adam,

who sinned

against his Creator, God,

and caused us ALL

to be born sinners )

  “receives not

the Things of the Spirit of God:

because They”

( the Things of the Spirit of God )

“are foolishness

to him:

neither can he”

( Spiritually )

“know them,”

( since,

the Things of the Spirit of God

are

SPIRITUAL

AND )

“because they are

Spiritually Discerned”

( or discernible

and able to be

Spiritually Known

and Understood

ONLY AFTER GOD

GIVES

A Naturally Born

Spiritually Dead and LOST

HUMAN BEING

THE SPIRIT of GOD,

THROUGH THE NEW BIRTH,

THE NEW GENERATION,

THE NEW CREATION,

SPIRITUALLY,

WHO THEN IS:

SPIRITUALLY REGENERATED,

SPIRITUALLY

BORN AGAIN,

into THE FAMILY of GOD).”

Adapted from:

“Why Studying God

is Different

Than All Other Science”

 by Geerhardus Vos*.

* Mr. Vos has a mind toward

bowing to God’s Revelation

in God’s Eternal Words to Mankind,

while also being subject to Satan’s deception

concerning Baptism.

Jesus was Baptized by The Authority of God,

from “a man sent from God to Baptize”,

who was John The Baptist.

Jesus Formed, Organized,

and Commissioned HIS CHURCH ASSEMBLY,

as a Divinely Instituted Called Out Assembly

and Jesus Promised to be with HER,

until the End of The Age….

That was 1500 years, or so, at least,

prior to groups of Saved Individuals

“leaving” their Mother ( false ) “church” of the Catholic kind.

However,

JESUS’ CHURCHES

Have NEVER BEEN ASSOCIATED

with “Catholic” ANYTHING.

Those of a “Reformed” idea COUNT

and are in THE KINGDOM of GOD

( assuming they have Received Jesus as their SAVIOR )

however,

any other “religious society” that claims the name of Jesus

is without Authority from God,

OTHER THAN THOSE COMMISSIONED by JESUS CHRIST

that Have Existed on Earth,

SINCE JESUS BUILT HIS CHURCH,

and explains how teachers

within man-made religious organizations

could defend and articulate

the Blessings of Bowing to God’s Revealed Words,

while also attempting to advance,

PURELY SENTIMENTAL,  UN-BIBLICAL HERESY,

IN THEIR FLESH,

such as “Infants” having “Baptism” associated

with Salvation Through The Blood of Jesus Christ.

That portion of Mr. Vos’ body of work must be dismissed.

Mr. Vos learned better than this anomaly in his writings,

when Brought Before The Judgement Seat of Jesus Christ.

We may benefit from his Vision for respecting God’s Words,

as REVEALED FROM GOD, otherwise.
