Daniel Webster, a great American hero, in the time of the Founding Fathers, grew up listening to
speeches of George Washington and John Adams, but he’s considered the most brilliant intellect
in the Senate – the greatest orator ever in the history of the US Senate:
‘...I believe that God exists in three persons; this I learn from revelation alone. Nor is it any
objection to this belief that I cannot comprehend how one can be three or three one. I hold it my
duty to believe not what I can comprehend or account for, but what my Maker teaches me...’
(His Confession Of Faith)
And that’s the right attitude. I may not understand it, but what I have found is once you ACCEPT
it you’ll start to understand it.
Oh yeah, you will because that’s the ministry of the Holy Spirit. When you begin to understand
with Him as the Teacher, you begin to get revealed knowledge which lifts us up. We now begin

I heard Keith Moore say this:
‘We don’t alter the Scripture to fit our lifestyle.’
Our lifestyle is already screwed up. We don’t need to screw up the Scripture to fit this. On the other

[Word of God] instead of taking all the power and strength out of His Word to fit our little
Mickey Mouse lifestyle.
That’s right. We have a tendency to want to make God in our image rather than the other way around.
[Many people say:]
‘Here’s the way I respond. Here’s the way I think. So God understands this.’
No, you need to think like God thinks.
That’s why He wants a new mind in you. That’s why He wants a new spirit in you. A new way of
thinking and that comes through the Scriptures. And this is one of the things I’ve seen the church do
a lot...We’ve become very selfish-centered. We now tell people,
‘You know, you need to get saved because of what Jesus will do for you.’
> How about you need to get saved because He’s the SAVIOUR of the world!
> He’s the Creator.
> He’s laid down the standards of your life!
It has nothing to do with what He’s going to do for you…It’s the right thing to do!
