|Things You Never Thought God Can Do by alBHAGDADI: 6:50am On Jan 21, 2018|
Today we'll be talking on things we humans never believe God can do, mostly because we believe He's too Almighty to belittle himself into doing does things.
Today's talk will also prove to people that God can come down, be a man and even DIE.
The problem with non-Christians e.g Buddhists, Muslims, Pagans etc is that they profess God to be Almighty and powerful but they limit His abilities. Their actions are mostly out of being deceived or out of blatant attack on Him. They claim God is too BIG to come down to earth and become a man, which is a thing that will corrupt him. This they say to deny that He revealed Himself in a man, Jesus Christ.
If God is truly Almighty, then there shouldn't be things He cannot do. Now let's prove that God did things that these people usually put forward as things He can't bring himself into doing.
1. God can eat food
Yes, He can. If He wants to eat, He will eat. The reason why some people believe He can't eat is simply Because they've been told by the Quran that only mortals eat food. Let's see the passage.
The Messiah, son of Mary, was no more than a Messenger before whom many Messengers have passed away; and his mother adhered wholly to truthfulness, and they both ate food (as other mortals do)...
The above Quran verse states that Jesus and His Mother, Mary both ate food which is a thing only mortals do. Well, let's go to the old testament book of the Bible written thousands of years before the Quran. There we will see that God did eat with Abraham
18 The Lord appeared to Abraham near the great trees of Mamre while he was sitting at the entrance to his tent in the heat of the day.
2 Abraham looked up and saw three men standing nearby. When he saw them, he hurried from the entrance of his tent to meet them and bowed low to the ground.
3 He said, “If I have found favor in your eyes, my lord,[a] do not pass your servant by.
4 Let a little water be brought, and then you may all wash your feet and rest under this tree.
5 Let me get you something to eat, so you can be refreshed and then go on your way—now that you have come to your servant.” “Very well,” they answered, “do as you say.”
6 So Abraham hurried into the tent to Sarah. “Quick,” he said, “get three seahs[b] of the finest flour and knead it and bake some bread.”
7 Then he ran to the herd and selected a choice, tender calf and gave it to a servant, who hurried to prepare it. 8 He then brought some curds and milk and the calf that had been prepared, and set these before them. While they ate, he stood near them under a tree.
So, there you have it. God ate food. I'm glad that the Quran also showed that Jesus ate food. Are you connecting the dots already?
2, God can wrestle
At this point, most of the people who knowingly or unknowingly limit God's power will be boiling with rage already.In their mind, they will say ''why would God come down and wrestle when He could just send His angels to do that?''. Well, my God can wrestle, if He wants to. In fact, He did wrestle ones and that was with Jacob.
22 That night Jacob got up and took his two wives, his two female servants and his eleven sons and crossed the ford of the Jabbok.
23 After he had sent them across the stream, he sent over all his possessions.
24 So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak.
25 When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob’s hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man.
26 Then the man said, “Let me go, for it is daybreak.”
But Jacob replied, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.”
27 The man asked him, “What is your name?”
“Jacob,” he answered.
28 Then the man said, “Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, because you have struggled with God and with humans and have overcome.”
29 Jacob said, “Please tell me your name.”
But he replied, “Why do you ask my name?” Then he blessed him there.
30 So Jacob called the place Peniel, saying, [b]“It is because I saw God face to face, and yet my life was spared.”
So, there you have it. God can wrestle if He wants to. He can put on HUMAN form to do that.
At this point, these people start to get petty with things they believe God cannot do. They ask mockingly if God can cry, feel pain and even go to the TOILET. The truth is, these people are making themselves greater than God when they limit His abilities. If they say God cannot go to the toilet, this means they are saying that there are things they can do which the their God cannot do. Doesn't that make them greater than their God? My God can go to the toilet if He wants to.
4. Can God DIE?
Instead of bugging yourself about things God cannot do, why not we go ask Him. Let's ask if He can Die.
No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father."
There you have it. God has the power to lay down His life and pick it up again. But you may argue that Jesus is not God, so it's not possible. Who told you that? You see, when Adam and Eve sinned, God punished them and also gave a solution for the redemption of mankind.
And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel."
Did you see the word in bold? Do you find anything strange about it? You see, a woman is not known to have seed, only men do. If so, then how come God said the woman's seed will destroy Satan? If her seed destroys Satan, wouldn't people give praise to the seed instead of to God? That seed can only be God, that's why He had to come via a virgin birth. See what Isaiah said...
All right then, the Lord himself will give you the sign. Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel (which means 'God is with us').
That child was called God with us cos that was actually God with us. Then you may ask, ''how can God come down and walk with we sinful humans?''. He did in the beginning with Adam and Eve.
8 Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden.
9 But the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?”
There we see God walking in the cool of the day and even calling out to Adam and Eve. You need a pair of legs to be able to walk and some lungs and vocal chord to be able to ask ''where are you?''. The fact that He even called out to them shows that He had come down to the level of humans. Adam and Eve had a relationship with God in the beginning but sin stopped that. It is that relationship that God wants again, that's why he came down to earth in Jesus Christ. It's so sad that humans didn't recognize him then and some still don't now.
10He was in the world, and though the world was made through Him, the world did not recognize Him.
11He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him.
12But to all who did receive Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God
To bring back the days when He could walk, talk and play with humans like in the beginning, He had to pay for their sins. He had to die for them to be saved. Yes, no man can die for the sins of another, but only God can. He can eat, wrestle, becoming a burning bush, cloud, pillar of fire and become a man just to save humanity. These and many more will He do just to ensure that humans have the relationship they had with Him in the beginning.
Imagine you are a king dressed in purple robe and riding in a chariot. Along the way, you see your child drowning in a pool of mud. What will you do? Will you remain in the chariot simply because you don't want your purple robe to get muddy? Will you send one of your servants to get and save your child even when the servant might be scared of drowning too? The true father of the child will cast aside his beautiful purple robe, jump out of the chariot and dive right into the mud to save the child. That is what God did. He put aside His Glory and came to this sinful and muddy world just to save we His children.
If your god cannot do all the above, especially to save you, then it's best you get a BIGGER GOD.
The only thing God cannot do is SIN. If he should sin, then all humanity is lost forever. Him sinning will be Him going against His words and promises. If He should sin, then it means our hope of eternal life is dashed. Thank God Almighty that He cannot sin, other wise He would have been corrupted like we Humans. That explains why He did not and couldn't sin when He came as Jesus Christ. He was sinless and perfect.

dollyjoy:Don't just make false claims, back them up by pointing out where I quoted the Bible out of context.
Perhaps, this is your way of conceding defeat.

hopefulLandlord:This atheist is already here. You will never find him on any other thread but Christian threads and on sundays.
He claims he doesn't believe God exists, yet he's obsessed with a Being that doesn't exist. Isn't that insanity?

Can God have sex?
The Angels can. They raped the daughter of men. And even had sex with Mary without her consent. God would be some kind of sex starved creature

The idea of God has really been bastardized.
A being so powerful that it created the universe needs food too?
A being so powerful that it created everything else that exists cannot sin (behave in a way that some of it's creatures feel is bad) so that it won't piss off who exactly?

|Re: Things You Never Thought God Can Do by realmindz: 10:56am On Apr 01, 2018|
I know God can do many things.
He obviously knows the pleasure of penetrating a virgin, he did that with Mary
he obviously knows the pleasure of taking weed, that's why he's the most high
he knows what terrorism is all about, the bible has the good records of the millions of people he killed. He taught Samson terrorism killing the ordinary philistines....
Even Yahweh showed Moses his backside, his very ass, to prove he knows what anal is all about
Praise be to Jehovah, the knower and doer of all
