From Thomas J. Kissinger. Some great questions to ponder. (www.hearingthetruthofgod.com
) Many of these are great discussion starters with others.
God has been asking man questions since the beginning of time. He started in Genesis
3:9 and has continued until the present. Why does God ask us questions? Why should
we ask ourselves questions? Why should we ask others questions? Why did Jesus
answer the questions that He was asked by the religious leaders in His day by asking
them a question in return? The answer is simply this: God wants to engage man into the
thinking process about Him. More importantly, God wants us to think about His plan,
purpose, power, and pleasure.
All the answers to God's questions can be found as
one diligently searches for the knowledge of the previous statement. Without an
understanding or knowledge of God's plan, purpose, power, and pleasure, these
questions will certainly be very frustrating to the reader. On the other hand, if we search
for an understanding of the purpose of the ages, we will be pleasantly surprised to find
answers to all of these questions. All of the Holy Scriptures are of the utmost
importance in your search, but there are certain key Scriptures that unlock the
mysteries of the Kingdom of God. Here is one key Scripture to consider that will cause
you to see God as ALL IN ALL! Keep this Scripture in mind as you answer each
Romans 11:36...For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are ALL THINGS: to Whom
be glory forever. Amen.
