                                          The wonder and magnificence of our God!


Luke 1:78-80 (TPT)

78 The splendor light of heaven’s glorious sunrise[a]
    is about to break upon us in holy visitation,
    all because the merciful heart of our God is so very tender.
79 The word from heaven will come to us[b]
    with dazzling light to shine upon those
    who live in darkness, near death’s dark shadow.[c]
    And he will illuminate the path that leads to the way of peace.”

 

Romans 14:11 NIV  It is written: “‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bow before me; every tongue will acknowledge God.’”


 Philippians 2:10-12 The Passion Translation (TPT)

10 The authority of the name of Jesus causes every knee to bow in reverence! Everything and everyone will one day submit to this name—in the heavenly realm, in the earthly realm, and in the demonic realm.[a] 11 And every tongue will proclaim in every language: “Jesus Christ is Lord Yahweh,”[b] bringing glory and honor to God, his Father![c]

 Believers Shine Like Lights in the World]

12 My beloved ones, just like you’ve always listened to everything I’ve taught you in the past, I’m asking you now to keep following my instructions as though I were right there with you. Now you must continue to make this new life fully manifested as you live[d] in the holy awe of God—which brings you trembling into his presence.

 

Footnotes

 This verse makes it clear that the name given to Jesus at his exaltation was “Lord Jehovah” or “Lord Yahweh.” The Hebrew name for Jesus is Yeshua (lit. “God is a Saving-Cry”;), which bears and reveals the name Yahweh. Jesus carries the name and reputation of his Father, Yahweh, within him. See John 17:11.


This powerful Jesus prays for us to be ONE with each other. 

John 17:11 The Passion Translation (TPT)

11 “Holy Father, I am about to leave this world[a]
   to return and be with you,
  but my disciples will remain here.
  So I ask that by the power of your name,
  protect each one that you have given me,
  and watch over them so that they will be united
  as one, even as we are one.

 


Philippians 2:11 Note the seven steps of exaltation that God gave Jesus after the cross:

God exalted him and multiplied his greatness.

He possess the greatest name of all.

His sovereign authority will cause every knee to bow.

God decreed that everyone in heaven will bow in worship of the God-Man, Jesus.

God decreed that every demonic being will bow to the God-Man

God decreed that every tongue will proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord Yahweh!

God received the glory and honor of sharing his throne with the Jesus.

 

 The glory and grandeur of God, His magnificence, His regal brilliance and power are evident in His universal designs. They’re so far above us, we can only bow down to His might and glory. And to think, this amazing God wants to establish connection with you and me! I mean  really. . .


                                 


Have you ever stared up at a waterfall whose thunderous roar fills your head with glory and power? or

Have you sat in a boat on a river in absolute stillness as the sky became a vast ceiling of sparkling diamonds?

Have you stood on a mountaintop, eyes filled with a vista of rising peaks shouting out the magnificent power of God’s strength?

Have you marveled at the gentleness of an enormous elephant nuzzling her baby, admired the speed of a racing cheetah, the grace of a gazelle?

 

This world of ours is brimming over with the touch of our God. His love gleams though all His creation. Even the miracles of the human body reflect His wisdom and delight in our being. My friends, one cannot really deny God’s existence except in pride or ignorance. The earth is a statement of His love for us.


FOOTNOTES

Philippians 2:12 The Aramaic can be translated “push through the service of your life” or “work the work of your life.”

 

 It is also the validation of His purpose and ours in our lives.  He made the earth to house us and to give us joy. He placed a purpose in each of our lives, and when we discover our purpose, our being takes on new energy as we set goals and follow God’s lead in pursuing them. Instilled in us is a new animation, our smile returns with glee. Life is not meant to be a drudgery or dull.

 

More verification of God’s care for us is found in the book He gave us. I call the Bible God’s Instruction Manual on living a happy life. That is its purpose ~ to lead and guide, to teach and portray His love for us; He is love. I ask that you who read these words will feel His love touch your hearts:

 

 ROMANS 8:14 The mature children of God are those[a] who are moved by the impulses of the Holy Spirit. 15 And you did not receive the “spirit of religious duty,”[b] leading you back into the fear of never being good enough.[c] But you have received the “Spirit of full acceptance,”[d] enfolding you into the family of God. And you will never feel orphaned, for as he rises up within us, our spirits join him in saying the words of tender affection, “Beloved Father!”[e] 16 For the Holy Spirit makes God’s fatherhood real to us as He whispers into our innermost being, “You are God’s beloved child!”


FOOTNOTES:

Romans 8:15 Or “spirit of adult [complete] sonship.” The Aramaic can be translated “the spirit of consecrated children.”

Romans 8:15 Abba is not a Greek word, but an Aramaic word transliterated into

 Greek letters. Abba is the Aramaic word for “father.” It is also found in Mark 14:36 and Gal. 4:6. Abba is also a word used for devotion, a term of endearment. This is why some have concluded that Abba could be translated as

“Daddy” or “Papa.” It is hard to imagine a closer relationship to have with God than to call him “Abba, our Beloved Father.”

 

 

                                              ABBA, BELOVED FATHER.

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
