TO WHOM CAN YOU COMPARE GOD ?
Isaiah 40:25


1- Not mankind.
God can not be compared with any one.

 

Isaiah 40:25- "To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal ? saith the Holy One". In other words; "To whom can you compare God"? Mankind seems to be forever comparing Almighty God with humanistic reasoning as they did in Isaiah's day and so God had to constantly remind people that He was the one who created the universe and that He never grows weary like us humans and that he is the final authority in everything ! It seems like; the more education a person has, the more they try to reason God out of things. A wise person would think about God but as scripture warns us: 1-Cor. 8:1- "Knowledge puffeth up" on the other hand; Psalms 111:10- "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom" Which category do you fit into? Hell makes no distinction whether you are highly educated or illiterate. Eternity is a very long time to spend in the torments of hell fire; so you would do yourself a favor by opening your mind to analyze your spiritual condition!

2- Not the Devil.
Satan falsely compares himself with God.

Isaiah 14:14- "I will be like the most high".

(1)- Scripture warns us that Satan is the great deceiver!
Even though Satan or Lucifer has been cast out of heaven, he still want's to
compare himself with and even make himself equal with or of higher authority than God. Isaac 14:12- "How art the fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground". Isaiah 14:13- "For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exhalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation in the sides of the north"; (Isaiah 14:14) I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High".

(2)- Satans actions verify it!
Isaiah 14:13- "I will exhalt my throne above the stars of God".
Satan has never ceased to try and destroy what God is doing and to set himself up as God. Adam and Eve were certainly no match for the cunning deception of the old serpent, the devil. He thought that he had destroyed the relationship God set up between himself and mankind. He actually did bring about separation of man from God and mankind has suffered the consequences of it for the last 6,000 years but where sin did abound, grace did much more abound through the blood of Jesus Christ! Satan was defeated at Calvary when Jesus shed his sinless blood for the sins of the world.



(3)- God reminded us who the supreme being really is!
Isaiah 40:26-
"Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth".

(a)- Creation is by God alone. (behold who created).
(b)- Order in the universe is a divine act of God. (brought out by number).
(c)- Divine intelligence named each created thing. (Called them all by name).
(d)- God's strength is enduring. (He is strong).
(e)- God never fails. ( Not one thing He sponsored ever failed).

3- Not Human Reasoning.
Humanistic reasoning hopelessly compares itself with God.

(1)- Education without spirituality can not comprehend God!
Opra Wenfry recently compared herself with God but her end is going to be a hot spot in hell!
(2)- The Beatles singing group once made the statement that they were more popular that Jesus Christ but they are now passed out into eternity without God or His Son as far as we know.
(3)- I have no patience with these egg head scientist who think that they know more than God! Real science agrees with the Bible and not one minute piece of evidence has ever been unearthed to prove otherwise. I have been ask how old the earth was and my reply is that it is older than mankind but not as old as God. The above verse in (Isaiah 40:26) tells us that God created the universe and called each planet, star and speck of dust by name.


The Genesis account of creation is God's answer and we don't need a scientist to try and disprove scripture!

I truly believe the bible account of creation as we know it from the book of Genesis and that mankind never co-existed with the reptilian world. Mankind is within the 6,000 year time frame agreeing with the book of Genesis. Therefore I believe that there were created animals on earth for many years before God brought mankind into existence and that the earth was Satan's domain after God cast him out of heaven which was long before mankind existed.
Revelation 12:9- "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him". I believe that Satan's rebellion as the second in charge under God in heaven; sparked the Almighty's initiative to create a free moral agent to love him for who he is; resulting in the creation of Adam and Eve at which time the "old world" as God  mentioned in scripture, "standing in and out of water" ceased to maintain it's reptilian inhabitants as God replenished the earth in the creative acts as described in the book of Genesis.

(3)- The Old and New Testament verifies the account of creation and that is all we need!
We believe the Bible! We don't need some so called scientist to try and prove creation is or isn't an act of God!

(a)- 2-Peter 3:5- "by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water". This verse holds more theological truth than at first meets the eye:

(b)- John 1:1- "In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God". God performed the creative acts described in the book of Genesis. Christ is described as "The living word"- "Elohim breathed upon the waters" during creation. The name Elohim is the plural name of God consisting of all three members of the Godhead: The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit. This tells us that the entire Godhead was involved with creation.

(c)- 2-Peter 3:6 moves us beyond creation all the way up to the days of Noah, (1650 years after creation) and the worldwide flood that destroyed the earth because of the wickedness of mankind. 2 Peter 3:6- "Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished". God placed his grace upon Noah to replenish the earth after the judgment of the flood from whence we all came.

I
know all this can be mind boggling but God is giving us only a glimpse of things that reveal
these truths while the devil is working overtime to convince many modern scientist, that God is out of the overall scheme of things. It would take a real fool to think that God's creation, just happened without a higher power implementing it
!  Psalms 14:1- "The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God".


CONCLUSION:

If you are one of those agnostics who do not know God or one who has failed to accept His saving grace; you need to ask him to come into your heart at this very moment in order for you to go to heaven. We believe that current events are leading up to Christ soon return for his Church and you don't want to be left out when he comes because you will then be sent a strong delusion and believe the lie of Satan. Just ask Christ to forgive your sin and tell him that you are sorry for the sin that separates you from God. Ask him to come into your heart to live forever and to place your sins under his blood. He will then write your name in his book of life in heaven and you will be his child forever!
