Questions about the Bible
The Bible is a gathering of many books. Is God pleased with its content?
Yes, He is. It is a fact that there are a few things missing in the Bible and some texts were edited. But overall the Bible is filled with the Spirit of God. It includes everything you need to know to walk in His ways.
What is the relationship between God and Jesus?
Jesus was physically just as human as we are. But he was entirely filled with the pure spirit of God. This is why God doesn’t see a difference between Jesus and Himself. He was named the SON OF GOD to give an example to the people, how a child of the great Father should behave. Jesus did exactly what God told him and fulfilled his perfect will through his behaviour. Everything he did was conducted by the spirit. God wants us to follow the example of His son and live just as he taught us. Everyone who follows the example of Jesus is a child of God. Therefore, we have to live our life in a close relationship to God and make Him the most high. Jesus said himself:
He that is of God heareth God’s words. (John 8:47)
Furthermore he said:
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. (John 14:12)
To make it clear: no, Jesus is not God, but God and Jesus are one. We shouldn’t pray to Jesus even less to his mother but only to God.

What does it mean that Jesus died for our sins?
The most important in the life of Jesus was his teaching. He taught us how to live a life without sin.
Through his perfect behaviour in accordance to the will of God, he gave us an example how to do what God tells us and to keep the laws of the old testament without fail. Though his teaching was his prime message, it was his death that let things work together and let us know about him. A lot of churches worldwide teach the false gospel that we can do whatever we want, because Jesus died for our sins. But it was his death in first place that gave us the chance to live exactly the way god wants.
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. (Matthew 7:21)
What is the meaning of: “I am that I am” (Exodus 3:14)?
He is that he is. God is the creator of all creation and so He is also the creator of our consciousness. Everyone who knows that he is of God he comes to God. ,“I am that I am” isn’t only His name but is also His title.
And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you. (Exodus 3:14)
Are we supposed to keep the commandments of the Old Testament?
Yes indeed, we are. God’s Word is irrevocable and it is valid for all time. If God said a thousand years ago that we shall not eat swine flesh then this is still relevant today. Why should God just change His mind about it? If He says something it is not without a reason. Jesus said himself he came to fulfil not to abolish. He made clear that the law of the old testament stays valid. Furthermore, Jesus was a Jew and He kept all the commandments. So why shouldn’t we do the same then? Isn’t He our example?
Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:17-20)
Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. (Matthew 7:12-23)

Did God send any other prophets or angels after Jesus has died?
Jesus warned us many times that we shall be aware of the false prophets which will come in the future. He told us that they will delude many people and lead them astray. And this is exactly what happened. Of course God is still talking to the people and there are a few of them who listen to Him and help other people to find the right path. People who proclaim the word which God has told them are prophets. But a prophet would never change the word of God which we already know. Furthermore, they rarely call themselves prophets. Anyone who teaches something else then is written in the Bible is a liar or deceived by the evil. In any case they are no prophet.
I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. (John 10:9-12)
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. (1. John 4:1)
Questions in everyday life
Does God answer everyone’s prayer?
Yes, he does. But you can’t hear if your ears aren’t opened. You got to follow the path He leads you on to acquire the blessing that you have asked for. God won’t work against your will to answer your prayers.
And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. (Isaiah 65:24)
Can we ask anything from God?
Yes, actually you can. God loves His children and He wants to give them everything they ask for except things that could harm them. Sadly people often ask for things that won’t do them any good and end up telling God ignored them or doesn’t even exist. It’s not nice to proclaim someone’s nonexistence just because He didn’t give you what you asked for. God surely does it for your own sake.
If there is a God why is there so much suffering on earth?
All the suffering in the world doesn’t have anything to do with God. It isn’t His fault that bad things are happening but the fault of the people who do not obey God and act against God’s will. All afflictions are coming from our own disobedience. Humans are free to decide themselves what they do, for God has given them a free will. Let’s take Africa as an example: most of the people there are poor even though they are living on the richest land of the earth. It is not God who made them poor but the people who have robbed all the treasures.
And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. (1. John 5:19)
And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. (John 1:5)
Does evil exist?
Yes, as already mentioned in the answer above evil exists. God has created everything in pure perfection. But His children whom God has given their own will, let evil condemn their hearts. We opened the doors for the pestilence that brought all the misery, hate and destruction to this world.
This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. (1. Johannes 1:5)
Does God speak to us? Can we hear the voice of God?
Yes, God speaks to the people. To all of them. It is our decision to open up our ears and let His voice lead us on His path. Therefore it is required to build a relationship to our father and fill our spirit with His joy.
He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God. (John 8:4)
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. (James 4:7-8)
Does God punish our misbehaviour?
Jesus clearly showed us that God is full of love and forgiveness. It is not at all in His mind to punish anyone for his sins. It is our disobedience that leads us to misery if we ignore His advice. There is surely no reason to blame our father if we run out of his will and meet the consequences.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. (Jeremiah 29:11)
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)
Questions about me
Why have you created this blog?
I have created this page to lighten the path for people who are desperately searching for God. Walking with God is not only a pleasure for yourself, but also for the people around you. God has a lot of love for His children. He wants to care for them and lead them to a life of fulfillment. He has anointed me to guide the people into a deep relationship with Him. I am not proud of what I am, but thankful for what the Lord has made me. It’s my wish to share the present God has given me with everyone who is able to accept it.
Which religion do you belong to?
I do not belong to any religion. I think there is only one religion in God’s eyes: to serve Him and to obey His word with all of your strength. If you meet these criteria, it doesn’t matter which religion you belong to.
How can we know that you are telling the truth?
I prove everything I write through verses of the Bible or other relevant resources. However, I recommend everyone to prove my teachings themselves with the help of the Spirit of God. This is not my own doctrine. Everything I write comes from the spirit that guides me.
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. (John 4:24)
Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him. (John 7:16-18)
