Psalm 90:2 "Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God."

    Only words of praise can begin to approach the glory of the wondrous GOD who created the Universe. He is "from everlasting to everlasting" [Ps 90:2] as he had no beginning and shall have no end. "All power in heaven and in earth" belongs to Him, [Mt 28:18]. In the sacred scrolls called the "Tenakh" or "Old Covenant" His name was spelled, "YHVH".

    By the authority of His word alone, He spoke and brought the Sun that heats our solar system into existence. It has been burning for at least six-thousand years, and has not been exhausted. It is a continuous nuclear fusion reaction of unfathomable proportions. Above this, He created the entire universe which mankind can only being to discuss in terms of light-years.

    On earth, when a people He loved were trapped in an apparently hopeless military situation, with their backs against the sea and no route for retreat, GOD's answer was to open the sea into two parts, and cause the children of Israel to walk safely upon dry land [Isa 43:16].

    A shepherd boy named David probably weighing less than 150 lbs., who knew the power of the GOD whom He served went out to fight a man approximately nine-feet tall, whose armor weight alone was measured in hundreds of pounds. GOD honored such faith and was with David in battle, who had the victory over Goliath.

    Almighty GOD created all that you see, however, the most awesome attribute of His Spirit is Love. GOD is love [1 JN 4:8], and He loves you with an everlasting love [Jeremiah 31:3]. GOD is Spirit [John 4:24], whose fruits reflect all goodness, and kindness [Gal 5:22], and holiness.

    In coming to salvation it is His holiness that we must consider, for we in our sins may not dwell in the presence of Almighty God. This is the entire reason that Adam and Eve were cast out of the Garden of Eden, and why we were born in sin, separated from our Creator. Through His Apostles, God has spoken these words;

Psalms 93:5
"5 Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O LORD, for ever."

1st Peter 1:15-16
"15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; 16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy."

Hebrews 12:14
"14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:"

    As long as we remain covered with these sins we were born in [Psalms 51:5], we cannot dwell in the presence of this righteous and holy God we have learned of. If not remedied, this means eternal separation from His peace, and the full punishment of His wrath. There is a way to be reedeemed. Confess that you are a sinner and learn how.

I see the holiness of God and confess that I am a sinner
