(John 5:30)

“I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but THE WILL of THE FATHER which hath sent me.” 

4. Who is the Creator?

(Acts 4:24- 27)

“Lord, thou art GOD, which hast MADE heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is: Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things? The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against THE LORD, and against HUS Christ. 

For of a truth against THEY HOLY CHILD Jesus, whom THOU hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,” 

5. By Whom did God the Father create all things ?

(Proverbs 30:4)

“Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended ? who hath gathered the wind in his fists ? who hath bound the waters in a garment ? who hath established all the ends of the earth ? what is HIS NAME, and what is HIS SON’S Name, if thou canst tell ?”

(Ephesians 3:9)

6. How did the Father create all things by Jesus Christ ?

(John 1:1-4)

No man hath seen GOD at any time, THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, which is in the bosom of THE FATHER, he hath declared HIM.” 

8. Did Christ inherit His name from His Father ?

(Hebrews 1:1-5) 

“GOD, who at sundry times and in divers manners SPAKE in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days SPOKEN unto us BY HIS SON, whom HE hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also HE made the worlds; Who being the brightness of HIS GLORY, and the express image of HIS PERSON, and upholding all things by the word of HIS POWER, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on THE RIGHT HAND of the Majesty on high: Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by INHERITANCE obtained a more excellent name than they. For unto which of the angels SAID HE at any time, THOU ART MY SON, this day HAVE I BEGOTTEN THEE ? And again, I WILL BE to him A FATHER, and he shall be TO ME A SON ?”

(Genesis 1:26, 5:2)

“And GOD said, Let US make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness....

Male and female CREATED HE them; and blessed them, and called “their” name Adam, in the day when they were created.”

(John 5:43)

GOD is a Spirit: and they that worship HIM must worship HIM in spirit and in truth.”

11. How do we give glory to God the Father ?

(John 5:22-24)

“For THE FATHER judgeth no man, but hath COMMITTED all judgment unto THE SON: That all men should honour THE SON, even as they honour THE FATHER .

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on HIM that SENT me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”

(Philippians 2:10-11)

“At the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should CONFESS that Jesus Christ is Lord, TO THE GLORY OF GOD THE FATHER.” 

12. Whom alone do we exalt ?

(John 17:3)

“This is life eternal, that they might know thee THE ONLY TRUE GOD, (and) Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” 

13. Is it important that we take John 17:3 seriously ?

(1 John 2:22-25)

“Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ ? He is antichrist, that denieth THE FATHER and THE SON. Whosoever denieth THE SON, the same hath not THE FATHER: he that acknowledgeth THE SON hath THE FATHER also. Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in THE SON, and in THE FATHER. And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.” 

14. Who is worshipped in Revelation ?

(Revelation 5:13)

“And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto HIM that sitteth upon the throne, (and) unto THE LAMB for ever and ever.”

(Revelation 7:9-10)

“Lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our GOD which sitteth upon the throne, (and) unto THE LAMB.” 

15. Whose kingdom is the kingdom of heaven ?

(Revelation 11:15)

(Ephesians 5:5)

“For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of CHRIST (and) of GOD.”

(Revelation 22:1)

“And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of GOD (and) of THE LAMB.”

16. Why are we not told to worship the Holy Spirit ?

(Revelation 5:6)

“And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, (having) seven horns and seven eyes, (which are) the seven Spirits of GOD (sent forth) into all the earth.”

(Galatians 4:6)

“And because ye are sons, GOD hath (sent forth) the Spirit (of HIS SON) into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

(John 14:6, 16-22)

“(I am) the way, (the truth), and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me....

And I will pray THE FATHER, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he....

[1] may (abide) with you forever; Even the Spirit (of truth); 

[2] whom the world cannot receive, because it (seeth him not), neither knoweth him: but ye know him;

[3] for he dwelleth with you, and (shall be in you).

[1] I will not leave you (comfortless): I WILL COME to you.

[2] Yet a little while, and the world (seeth me) no more; but ye (see me): because I live, ye shall live also.

[3] At that day ye shall know that I am (in) my FATHER, and ye (in) me, and I (in) you.

He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my FATHER, and I will love him, and will (manifest myself) to him. Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, (how) is it that thou wilt (manifest thyself) unto us, and not unto the world ?”

(Galatians 2:20)

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ (liveth in me): and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of (The Son) of GOD, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”

(Psalm 139:7)

“Whither shall I go from (thy Spirit) ? or whither shall I flee from (thy Presence) ?” 

17. What is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit ?

(Mark 3:22, 29-30)

“And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem (said), *He hath* Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils....But he that shall (blaspheme) against the Holy Spirit hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation: 

(Because they said), *He hath* an unclean spirit.”

(Luke 11:19-20)

“And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your  sons cast them out ? therefore shall they be your judges. But if I with (the finger of God) cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you.”

(John 14:10)

“Believest thou not that I am (in) THE FATHER, and THE FATHER (in) me ? 

the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but THE FATHER that (dwelleth) (in) me, (HE doeth) the works.” 

18. Can we assume that anyone else is worshipped ?

(John 14:1, 6)

“Let not your heart be troubled: ye (believe) in GOD, (believe also) in me....I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man (cometh) unto THE FATHER, but (by me).”

(1 John 1:3)

“That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our (fellowship) is with THE FATHER, (and) with HIS SON Jesus Christ.”

(Revelation 22:18-19)

“For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man (shall add) unto these things, GOD (shall add) unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man (shall take away) from the words of the book of this prophecy, GOD (shall take away) his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”
