Who Is or Was The God of The Old Testament ? Part 2

Published on 7/8/2014
For additional information  Click Here

Here is where we left off in Part 1

I know some readers will say you can`t take all that is written in the bible as literal interpretation and I agree. However you understand the Old Testament and if you believe that Christ was here to represent God or as some state the exact nature of Him than I ask you what god are you following.

Part 2 starts here.

Thanks to all who gave their thoughts on this very important question. Some individuals believe that the wrath of God is satisfied by the blood of Christ. While other individuals are waiting for God`s judgement and some see too many contradictions in the bible.

If the God of the Old Testament is the one true God why would anything he does need to be satisfied. How many people did God kill when sin was committed, when he was offended, became jealous, or those not of the tribes of Israel? If the Scriptures below don`t make you think twice to what god you are following perhaps nothing will.

And Judah went up; and the LORD delivered the Canaanites and the Perizzites into their hand: and they slew of them in Bezek ten thousand men. ( Judges 1:4 )

And he said unto them, Follow after me: for the LORD hath delivered your enemies the Moabites into your hand. And they went down after him, and took the fords of Jordan toward Moab, and suffered not a man to pass over.

And they slew of Moab at that time about ten thousand men, all lusty, and all men of valour; and there escaped not a man. ( Judges 3:28-29 )

This god would even go as far as killing 70,000 Israel men just because King David counted them.


1 Chronicles 21:1-14

1 And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel.
2 And David said to Joab and to the rulers of the people, Go, number Israel from Beersheba even to Dan; and bring the number of them to me, that I may know it.
3 And Joab answered, The LORD make his people an hundred times so many more as they be: but, my lord the king, are they not all my lord's servants? why then doth my lord require this thing? why will he be a cause of trespass to Israel?
4 Nevertheless the king's word prevailed against Joab. Wherefore Joab departed, and went throughout all Israel, and came to Jerusalem.
5 And Joab gave the sum of the number of the people unto David. And all they of Israel were a thousand thousand and an hundred thousand men that drew sword: and Judah was four hundred threescore and ten thousand men that drew sword.
6 But Levi and Benjamin counted he not among them: for the king's word was abominable to Joab.
7 And God was displeased with this thing; therefore he smote Israel.
8 And David said unto God, I have sinned greatly, because I have done this thing: but now, I beseech thee, do away the iniquity of thy servant; for I have done very foolishly.
9 And the LORD spake unto Gad, David's seer, saying,
10 Go and tell David, saying, Thus saith the LORD, I offer thee three things: choose thee one of them, that I may do it unto thee.
11 So Gad came to David, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Choose thee
12 Either three years' famine; or three months to be destroyed before thy foes, while that the sword of thine enemies overtaketh thee; or else three days the sword of the LORD, even the pestilence, in the land, and the angel of the LORD destroying throughout all the coasts of Israel. Now therefore advise thyself what word I shall bring again to him that sent me.
13 And David said unto Gad, I am in a great strait: let me fall now into the hand of the LORD; for very great are his mercies: but let me not fall into the hand of man.
14 So the LORD sent pestilence upon Israel: and there fell of Israel seventy thousand men.


Samaria shall become desolate; for she hath rebelled against her God: they shall fall by the sword: their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up. ( Hosea 13:16 )


Now when Genghis Khan, Alexander The Great, Hitler, Stalin`s henchmen, the Klu Klux Klan, Idi Amin, Saddam, Osama Bin Laden and many other dictators, kill masses of people we are angered, and saddened and ask why. But when the God of the Old Testament goes on one of his killing sprees most individuals who follow this god will never really question his motives. I use to be one of these individuals. But now I am asking many questions about who this god really was or is.


One more thing I find interesting is why would the true God of creation favor one tribe of people over another tripe of people.? From what I can tell he called the tribes of Israel his people. How can this be? This is not unconditional love.
