What does that mean; God is Absolutely Good? Absolute is defined as something that is 100 percent complete with no exceptions. When looking at God, there is no one greater or higher than God. No sin or evil exists in and around Him. God is Good always, He never changes! Remember: God is Absolutely Good!
If we look at Genesis 1, the bible says “Then God said” 8 times (8 meaning completion) referring to His Creation and in verse 31, the bible says “Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good.”
When we go to Chapter 2 of Genesis we are introduced to another aspect of God, the LORD God. Genesis 2:8 says “The LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed.” The government of the LORD is “sowing and reaping”. You may have heard the phrase; “What you sow you reap.” this is the government of the LORD! Everyone on this earth is bound by the LORD’s government of sowing and reaping.
Whenever we humans sow our seeds we plant, there is judgment good or bad, that is the harvest and reaping. Lets look at a few examples:
- You sow seeds of offerings and tithes; you receive blessings.
- You sow seeds of time, charity, work; you receive blessings.
- You sow seeds of hatred (sin), your harvest/reaping could result in a curse or sickness or death.
- You sow seeds of unforgiveness (sin), your harvest/reaping could result in a curse or sickness or death.
- You sow seeds of murder (sin), your harvest/reaping could result in a curse or sickness or death.
- A nation may sow seeds of abortion (sin), that nation will face judgement.
- It does not matter, whatever you sow you will reap a judgement of good or bad. That is the goverment of the LORD.
- We humans decide our own fate by what we sow, we do this! God Does Not Do This, We Do!
- God has given us free will; we decide and what we choose will determine our fate, again Not God!
Know this, God, being absolutely good, is also waiting with open arms for those who plant/sow unrighteous seed(s) and realize their wrongdoing. They have an opportunity to make this right with God. There is always HOPE! To make this right with God, you must recognize your sin and repent. God is willing to forgive those who sin and come willingly to Him in repentance. At that time, your sins are as far as the east is from the west to God; He sees them no more as if the sin was never committed. That is what the blood of Jesus does for us. It covers our sin(s) when we repent so that we can stand pure and righteous before God.
The world attributes a lot of bad and evil to God, all this is not true! The main source is Satan and humans that have given Satan their authority and sown bad seeds! Remember we are operating in the LORD’s government. We, humans, decide our own fate by what we sow. So, don’t blame God for what we do! Because God is Absolutely Good!
Does God sow bad seeds; No (God is absolutely Good)! Do we sow bad seeds; Yes (we are responsible for the seeds we sow good or bad). Does Satan sow bad seeds; Yes (Look at the parable of Wheat and Tares, Matthew 13:24-30).
In the four Gospels, we see Jesus as a sinless man, meaning Jesus did not commit any sin, no lies, no deceit, no murder, nothing wrong, no sin!
John 14:7 said, “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.” and in John 5: 18-23 “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner. 20For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will show Him greater works than these, that you may marvel. 21For as the Father raises the dead and gives life to them, even so, the Son gives life to whom He will. 22For the Father judges no one but has committed all judgment to the Son, 23that all should honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him.
There is no sin in Jesus and no sin in God, especially in Heaven. Jesus, the Son, is in the Father God as Father God is in Jesus, the Son.
God is Absolutely Good!
If you or your family members do not know Jesus, remember Jesus died for everyone and made it simple, just call on the name of Jesus and you will be saved. Then, you will be in Heaven with all other believers.
Please pass this on to family and friends, especially those who don’t know Jesus!
