God is Not Everywhere

omnipresence of God is unbiblical

The word ‘omnipresent’ is never found in the original languages used to write the word of God in the Bible. Although it is possible that later translations, which were translated according to the religious inclination of the translator, may have it. We are lucky to have manuscripts of the scriptures dating as far back as the 1st and 2nd century of the Christian era (See image below). The advent of the computer age made it easier to search the entire Bible in just a click of a keypad.

Nobody can ever (in this age) understand the whole being of God.

ISAIAH 55:8-9 
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

As the heaven is unfathomable, God’s thinking and ways are like the unfathomable heavens by earthlings.

We are not allowed by any authority in the Bible to ascribe anything to God, whether it seems like adding honor and glory to Him! Why? God does not change. He is infinitely the same from everlasting to everlasting.

JAMES 1:17 
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

The teachings of the deceived Mormon’s that God is a person just like us in the beginning; and only attained exaltation is biblically false.

We cannot add to His glory by our belief; nor diminish it by our unbelief.

3 For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?
4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

God is limited to being true and faithful, He cannot lie! Im not putting limit unto Him, His words say so. It is impossible for Him to lie!

TITUS 1:2 
In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:

We know that God is a spirit because our teacher from heaven said so.

JOHN 4:24 
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

He is love because it was written.

I JOHN 4:16, 8 
16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. 
8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

He is a consuming fire.

HEBREWS 12:29 
For our God is a consuming fire.

He is compassionate and ever loving.

PSALMS 103:14 
For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.

He is good.

PSALMS 100:3-5 
3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. 
4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. 
5 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

He sits in yonder heavens and Jesus, our Lord, sits at the right hand of His majesty.

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such a high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;

One strict teaching of the Bible is for us to accept the word of God as it is. Nothing must be added or taken away.

REVELATION 22:18-19 
18 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: 
19 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.

Thus saith the LORD; Stand in the court of the LORD's house, and speak unto all the cities of Judah, which come to worship in the LORD's house, all the words that I command thee to speak unto them; diminish not a word:

PROVERBS 30:5-6 
5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. 
6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

The Bible says that the eyes of God are everywhere.

The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.

If God is everywhere, as other religions claim, the Bible should not have said that the eyes of the Lord are in every place. It will contradict the law of logic. Does it mean that the eyes of God, His very eyes, are everywhere? Of course, not! His eyes are in His being; but can see even beyond the material universe we know.

God is in heaven, according to the prayer taught by our Lord Jesus Christ to the disciples.

MATTHEW 6:9-13 
9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 
10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 
11 Give us this day our daily bread. 
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

God is not in a place where there are evil strife and envy.

JAMES 3:16, 15 
16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. 
15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.

He is not where confusion dwells.

For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

It is an insult to God for anybody to say that He is everywhere. The disrespectful are trying to drag God to every place they want Him to be: In the casinos? The prostitution dens? In the place of demons? God forbids! This is the teaching of the misled, the blinded, and the wicked.

THE ACTS 17:24 
God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

He even left His chosen nation, Israel, when they turned to be wicked.

Now for a long season Israel hath been without the true God, and without a teaching priest, and without law.

But when they were following His statutes and judgments, God was with them, and not in any nation on earth.

II KINGS 5:15 
And he returned to the man of God, he and all his company, and came, and stood before him: and he said, Behold, now I know that there is no God in all the earth, but in Israel: now therefore, I pray thee, take a blessing of thy servant.

To my readers, are you one of those who are trying to discredit God by ascribing to Him false qualities that He does not ascribe to Himself? God forbids!

JOB 13:7 
Will ye speak wickedly for God? and talk deceitfully for him?

My God — the Almighty God — is not in a heart that deceives people like other religious leaders. Praise be unto Him forever and ever. Amen!

God Bless.

“Let There Be Night” Eschews Guidance and Growth

3/11/2017 67 Comments

Barbara Brown Taylor article Let There Be Night

A pastor wrote a book entitled “Let There be Night,” the context of which is that God can be found and is much closer in darkness than in light. I’m hesitant to call Barbara Taylor a pastor, but that is how people call her. Featured in Time Magazine (4/28/2014), her audacity is such that it had triggered my appetite to write off those contentions.

This book is apparently written in darkness, inspired by darkness, and is against Christ and God. Taylor alleged that great things happened in the dark. Among these are that Paul was called when he was blind, therefore in darkness; the exodus from Egypt happened at night; God met Moses in the thick darkness at the top of the mount Sinai; that Jesus was born beneath a star, and resurrected in a cave of darkness. Note the following quotations published in Time Magazine.

“The exodus from Egypt happened at night. God met Moses in the thick darkness atop Mount Sinai to hand down the Ten Commandments. The Apostle Paul’s conversion happened after he lost his sight. Jesus was born beneath a star and resurrected in the darkness of a cave.” (Time Magazine. April 28, 2014, “Let There Be Night,” page 7/13).

Let us begin our analysis on what kind of thinking Barbara Taylor has. Biblically, light is better than darkness!

Then I saw that wisdom excelleth folly, as far as light excelleth darkness.

“Darkness holds more lessons than light, and contrary to what many of us have long believed, it is sometimes in the bleakest void that God is nearest.” (Time Magazine. April 28, 2014, “Let There Be Night,” page 10/13).

The allegation that “Darkness holds more lessons than light,” in the article written in Time Magazine is simply against the Bible.

Take note that there was an inherent darkness before God pronounced and expressed what was in His thinking, “Let there be light.” Contrary to what Taylor espoused, what is biblical is, Let there be light and not, Let there be night!

GENESIS 1:2-3 
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

Isn’t Taylor’s just a play of words and phrases, changing a declaration from the mouth of God from where comes life, to something directly opposite, “Let There be Night?”

Isn’t this an intentional betrayal of God’s wisdom? How audacious!

God’s thinking is undoubtedly higher and not just better than anybody’s thinking but the best!

ISAIAH 55:8-9 
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

And according to the highest thinking of the Almighty Creator, after the light showed in the midst of the inherent darkness, He saw that it was good.

And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

If Taylor is reading her Bible, she will know that there is not a single verse in the entire scriptures that says that darkness is better than light in any given time since the creation of light. On these premises, let us put under the light of the scriptures the darkness created by the thinking of Taylor and illuminate the thinking of those who believed in the fallacy being spread by her, a false pastor. I mark my points.

1. God himself dwells in light unapproachable.

Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power everlasting. Amen.

2. If darkness is better than light, God should have inhabited darkness from eternity! Jesus Christ, the begotten Son of God, is the light that shone in Galilee, who later said that He is the light of the world.

MATTHEW 4:15-16 
15 The land of Zebulun, and the land of Naphtali, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles; 
16 The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.

JOHN 8:12 
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

3. Where there is darkness, there is no light. And where light is, darkness is exterminated. If the Father and Jesus Christ are lights and are dwelling in light, how can you find them in darkness? It is something stupid to think God can be found more in darkness.

Taylor appears to have launched her darkness campaign beginning with redefining darkness as something divine. Darkness to her is how God could be found more than in light. Darkness is as a tool for lessons to learn from – more than from light. The direction proposed is from where you are, go to the dark because the dark offers more good, hence “Let There Be Night.”

4. Contrasting light from darkness, there are more lessons in light than there are in darkness.

Let us delve on things that will prove this. The paradox is that things done in darkness are not to be taught or even be talked about. What is being done in darkness is not a lesson to be learned.

Marvelously, when a man and another’s man woman are in darkness, there is no institution that will teach them what to do in darkness.

It is disgusting even to talk about what is done in the dark.

The Apostle Paul did not even want to talk about things being done in darkness because there is no lesson worthwhile learning.

Walking with a definite goal to reach is better done in light than in darkness.

JOHN 11:9-10 
9 Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world. 
10 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.

5. It is Christ's commandment to walk in the light – because the way is clear. Not in the darkness where one cannot see.

JOHN 12:35 
Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.

Let us investigate further Taylor’s errors of fact.

Was Paul converted in darkness because he was blind? Paul was blinded by the intense light he saw upon encountering the Lord Jesus Christ on his way to Damascus.

THE ACTS 9:3-4 
3 And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: 
4 And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?

The time when he encountered the Lord Jesus Christ was at midday when the sun, the literal light of the world, was at its peak.

THE ACTS 22:6-8 
6 And it came to pass, that, as I made my journey, and was come nigh unto Damascus about noon, suddenly there shone from heaven a great light round about me. 
7 And I fell unto the ground, and heard a voice saying unto me, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? 
8 And I answered, Who art thou, Lord? And he said unto me, I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom thou persecutest.

In conclusion, it is wrong to say that Paul’s conversion happened in darkness unless the understanding of the one saying this is under complete darkness.

Second, the liberation of the Jews from their bondage from Egypt did not happen at night. They took the first step forward out of Egypt during the breaking of the day.

The Hebrew word used is yôm which literally means “day.”

EXODUS 12:41 
And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt.

It was further clarified that they left the next day after the Passover

And they departed from Rameses in the first month, on the fifteenth day of the first month; on the morrow after the passover the children of Israel went out with a high hand in the sight of all the Egyptians.

EXODUS 12:22 
And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the basin; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning.

Considering these verses it is inevitable to conclude that the exodus did not happen at night but in the day.

Third, Taylor alleges that the Lord Jesus Christ resurrected in a dark cave claiming that the resurrection happened in darkness. The truth is, to resurrect is to leave darkness and go towards the direction of light.

Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

Fourth, as God’s wisdom in the Bible teaches us about resurrection according to which is also accepted in Science, light helps in the budding of a planted seed and shows the direction in order for the plant to grow. It is the same with a human being who needs light – physical and spiritual.

35 But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come? 
36 Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die: 
37 And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain: 
38 But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.

Resurrection is the moment when those that are in graves of darkness will come out to light and life.

JOHN 5:28-29 
28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, 
29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

Life is in light, so to resurrect is to come out from darkness into light.

JOHN 1:4 
In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

In contrast, physical darkness is only good for resting the eye and allowing the production of melatonin by the pineal gland. Melatonin induces sleep, deep sleep that is. So, darkness is only good when you are not going to do any work.

Fifth, while physical darkness is allotted by God for people to sleep, you will not learn lessons while you sleep! Physical darkness is used as the opportune time of the cohorts of the devil to do their business.

MATTHEW 13:25 
But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

Spiritual darkness is where man abhors the light and intentionally prefers the dark because light tends to expose, to illuminate, to point to truth. Evil loves this kind of cover; it is dim; there is no light. Spiritual darkness gives no benefit whatsoever.

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.

All good things, divine and humane are achieved in light. Physically, light is necessary to put in order the minutest detail of a delicate scientific instrument or a work of art. The module that brought man to the moon was not made in darkness: and though I was not there, I am pretty sure that the Mona Lisa was painted in a well illuminated place.

But more than physical light is spiritual light that lightens the soul, the mind and the heart. God dwells in it and Himself is light! It the best thing that exists with God!

EPHESIANS 1:18-19 (RSV) 
18 Having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, 
19 And what is the immeasurable greatness of his power in us who believe, according to the working of his great might

Down with darkness and on with the light!

To God be the glory and light forever and ever! Amen.


Not Everything is Possible to God

What's not possible for God

God is God — cannot be more cannot be less.

JAMES 1:17
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

The Greek word used is ‘parallage’̄ which means transmutation or change.

mu·ta·tion [myootáysh’n] 
1. change in genetic material: a random change in a gene or chromosome resulting in a new trait or characteristic that can be inherited. Mutation can be a source of beneficial genetic variation, or it can be neutral or harmful in effect. 
2. biology Same as mutantn (sense 1) 
3. alteration: the action or process of changing something or of being changed 
4. linguistics Same as umlautn (sense 1) 
5. phonetics phonetic change: a phonetic change found in Celtic languages in which the initial consonant of a word changes according to the preceding word 
-mu·ta·tion·al, adjective 
-mu·ta·tion·al·ly, adverb

Scientifically crystal is the perfect or last state of some materials. The perfect or the last state of sand is glass. The perfect or the last state of carbon is diamond. God is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the end, the First and the Last.

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

Of course, this does not mean that God is a letter or letters. The term used is for people to know that God is the Beginning of everything that exist. He is the first because He is the originator of everything. He is the end and the last because everything will finally be subjected to Him.

24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. 
27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.

He is a perfect being and cannot be perfected.

Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

But He did not attain perfection as the Mormons claimed.

This doctrine of the Mormons is utter stupidity and ignorance against the truth revealed by God in the Bible about Himself. In fact, we must not entertain any thought even how clever it was formulated by man, save the revelations of the Lord Jesus in the Bible.

All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father,save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.

God has always been Himself and will always be himself in His perfect state of being.

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.

It follows therefore, biblically speaking, that there are so many things impossible to happen with God. It is impossible for Him to lie because He is in the perfect state of truth – the absolute truth.

In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:

It is impossible for Him to change because perfection is the last reasonable state of change. It is impossible for Him to deny himself because He is the absolute state of existence.

If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.

Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power everlasting. Amen.

There are realities which up to now are unfathomable by the wisdom of men. Even the greatest of human intellect cannot fully comprehend the diverse mysteries of a whole universe of everything that exists. Such awesome wonders bespeaks of God’s eternal power and Godhead.

THE ROMANS 1:19-20
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath showed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

If the things created cannot fully be understood it is but wise to conclude that the Creator cannot be fully known by His creation including men nor even angels.

THE ACTS 17:24
God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands…

JOB 4:18
Behold, he put no trust in his servants; and his angels he charged with folly…

I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.

It is idiotic to attribute to God anything that is a product of human comprehension and understanding.

For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counselor?

In fact, the Bible admonishes us not to think of anything more than we ought to think, especially about the being of God.

For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

To think and to conclude that God can do everything constitutes an insult and blasphemy unto the unfathomable majesty of the Most High. As it is unwise to put limits to Him, it is equally unwise to put elasticity to the limits set by God for Himself. We know that He cannot lie because He revealed it through His written words in the Bible. He cannot change himself; He cannot deny himself and so on. To say and make others believe that God can do anything or everything will be an insult and blasphemy against God. Will it be possible for Him to connive with satan?

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

Is it possible for him to be an author of confusion? I Corinthians 14:33…..

For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. 

Is it possible for Him to commit injustice? Is it possible for Him to forsake the widows and the orphans?

Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him.

A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows,is God in his holy habitation.

Is it possible for Him to forget or neglect his children?

ISAIAH 49:15
Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.

Is it possible for Him to betray the trust of His children?

God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

The verses cited after each question prove that there are many things which are impossible to God. I pray for your enlightenment.

Sincerely in Christ,

Brother Eli Soriano
