Psalm 145: The LORD God Our Saviour
"To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever"
According to the Word of God, the LORD God was born as Jesus Christ. As a man, the Messiah had memories of Who He was - and Who He would be restored to (see Who Sits At The Right Hand Of God?).
"17:5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was." (John 17:5 KJV)
Throughout history, the people of the LORD knew Who the LORD was, is, and always will be: "that Rock was Christ."
"10:1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; 10:2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; 10:3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat; 10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.
The Holy Scriptures, "Old" Testament and New Testament, are filled with the same statements that the LORD God was born as the Saviour Jesus Christ. Some dismiss the "that Rock was Christ" statements of 1 Corinthians quoted above as "New Testament interpretation," but the very same was stated much earlier, in the Hebrew Scriptures. Exactly the same throughout all time.
"106:21 They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in Egypt" (Psalm 106:21 KJV)
Many other Scriptures, recorded throughout the Holy Bible, consistently proclaim the same truth about "that Rock was Christ" - the LORD God Who was sent by God to do the Work of Creation (see The Christian Universe).
"22:3 The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence." (2 Samuel 22:3 KJV) "13:4 Yet I am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no god but me: for there is no saviour beside me." (Hosea 13:4 KJV)
"145:1 David's Psalm of praise.
Fact Finder: Did the Messiah preach a "new" Gospel - or did He teach what was always the Truth?
This Day In History, April 22

1793: Prior to the U.S. becoming an imperial power itself, U.S. President George Washington issued a Proclamation of Neutrality for the U.S. to not become involved in the imperial wars between France and Britain. Washington recognized that France supported the rebellion of the New England colonies for no other reason than to reduce the British military presence in North America, so that France could eventually widen its own colonies in and from Louisiana in the south and eastern Canada in the north. France had no interest in anyone's "freedom" (while aiding the rebellion of the New England colonies, France tolerated no independence in any of its own colonies in North America). Washington repeatedly warned throughout his presidency, and later through his retirement years, against the U.S. ever becoming the very same sort of "rise and fall" imperial empire that Washington had just fought against. One of the greatest ironies of Washington's political legacy is that the capital city that is named after Washington became a worldwide symbol of the very same colonial imperialism that Washington himself actually detested and rebelled against.
