The LORD our God is a Literal God.

Some say that Christians are taking up the scriptures so literally, and indeed, we are literal. Because we have a literal God. He is very literal and he does not tolerate inaccuracies and fallacies nor the ignorance of men, in one way or another, the Truth will be made known to them.

As such, when a Christian is convicted to share what is in his heart to his fellow men, an unbeliever would find his ways to repel what has been said, for he is blinded by his own principles. When you quote verses among them, some would probably say, “Don’t quote me with your verses. You’re taking it so literally.” Unfortunately, for the unbelievers who keep denying the Truth for their own principles, they miss one thing: that is to know that, indeed, we Christians are taking the scriptures and the principles of God literally. It is because our God is literal Himself!

What does it mean to be literal? It means that our God, the God of Abraham, Jacob, and Israel is an actual, Living God, and is not exaggerated or inaccurate; his principles are not overstated; and His words and commandments and laws were not written for the sake of historical importance but they’re there for us to read it and know that He is God.

God is literal for He is accurate and true to His word. But God also works in mysterious ways that it is difficult for a man to understand it, for His works are not comparable with the works of men. He is indeed literal to his commandments and laws, nonetheless, in the scriptures Jesus also speaks in parables so that people can relate to it to life and make an understanding out of it.

The scriptures is literal. It is not inconsistent. It is not inaccurate nor exaggerated, as some others claim it to be. Many are parables that Jesus has spoken, yet in his parables and illustrations they are all true and literal regarding to the lives of men. What has been written on it can still be observed up to this day, even till the end of age.

I do not force you to read the scriptures, but I am suggesting that there is no better option than to read the word of God. Only then you will know that God is a literal God: He is not inaccurate, nor his principles and laws.

Be still. And know that He is God.

    Yes, God is Living and Active and Present, literally here and now. We live, move and have our being in God now (Acts 17:28). There are also many levels of experiencing God; many levels of the Holy Spirit speaking to hearts. I was given this verse this morning “Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up. If any one imagines that he knows something, he does not yet know as he ought to know” 1 Cor 8: 1-2
    I always get into trouble when I start to think I know or understand all of God who is infinite and beyond our finite minds.
    God also works in mysterious ways!
    “Christ was the supernatural Rock” 1 Cor 10: 3-4
    God acts and appears in many different ways to many people on many different levels (Literal, mystical, metaphorically, allegorically, etc.). Allegory is mentioned many times in the bible. Jesus taught in parables, not literally, to those who were ignorant of deeper truth or couldn’t understand, or didn’t have the eyes of their heart enlightened yet (Ephesians 1:18).
    Many blessings on your journey to oneness with the Father, as Jesus prayed for us (John 17)
    To God be the Glory!!!

      I so agree with you, I believe no one can really understand the thoughts of God, especially since His thoughts are deeper and higher than ours. But as Christians who truly know Him and His existence, we know His nature as being God. We are likely the sheep and just like the sheep, we know the voice of our Shepherd. And it is our faith in Him that we’re still holding on with His principles and laws, even Jesus himself keeps the Fathers laws. To God be the glory!

      Thanks, Robin. It is my desire to write articles that will glorify God and His Kingdom. I’m glad that you’re blessed and for sure, God himself is bombarded with joy. Many blessings to you, as well. And by the way, I’ve read some of your articles, too, and I truly love it especially the one with sorcery (Harry Potter) which is indeed true. I will surely come back and will look forward to your future posts. ^_^

      God bless.
      Neen.
