THE EXPRESS WILL OF GOD
Welcome All in the precious Mighty name of the Lord God and His Son Jesus Christ.
The ultimate aim of this message is to solely bring to light the absolute will of God, not only for the none-believer but also for the Believer. And for those who are seeking the truth about the Sovereign God, may you receive the knowledge of God without doubt in your heart; Hence, with an open heart towards learning about the Father God and His Son, and by the revelation power of the Holy Spirit, a way may indeed be open for one to wholly receive the teachings of Jesus Christ the Messiah with fullness of joy.
Furthermore, by the mercies of God may the hearts of those receiving the Word of Truth, not only receive His Word, but also receive help to embrace the truth freely within their spirit. Note, this spiritual process of God’s help and deliverance is accomplished by the Holy Spirit’s revelation of The Light, Jesus Christ the Saviour of the World.
However, this process of revelation by the spirit of God must be coupled by the individual’s change of heart, or willingness to receive the truth freely by FAITH; Note, this spiritual requirement concerning Faith is crucial in all aspects for the salvation of man, for without faith man cannot perceive or receive in his spirit the revelation of the Word of God. However, by faith the individual can wholly receive the Word of truth by God’s redeeming revelational power which destroys all elements of spiritual blindness.
The Ultimate objectivity of this Mission
The ultimate objective of this mission is to present the Word of God for the purpose of edification and strengthening by the reliance and help of the Holy Spirit.
Those who lack knowledge of the truth of God, may all ignorance and spiritual blindness be totally eradicated, for this debilitating condition incarcerates and separates man from God, causing him to be bound and devoid of Light; May he indeed be set free by God’s revelations of Truth, thus, receiving healing and reconciliation with God.
Note, this God assigned intervention and deliverance of help totally dismantles what the devil has done in terms of blinding the eyes of man, to the extent that they were unable to receive the truth. However by the Power of God’s grace, man is now set free by faith, and is now able to receive the absolute knowledge and Will of God by the power of the Son Jesus Christ.
We also sincerely hope that the Saints will come together in unity with this message, to continuously pray and seek God for those around the world who are suffering serious dire conditions; See below some of these conditions which HAS, and IS drastically effecting lives globally:
a. Lack of Knowledge of the Sovereign God and His Son
d. Demonic oppression without any intervention of help
e. Severe Loss
f. Taken by Deception
g. Serious difficult situations that only God can heal
h. Sudden Disaster
I. Countless loss of life worldwide
We also sincerely hope that they who are suffering great need, who desperately need deliverance from Spiritual oppression, will indeed receive help by the mercies of God who also hears the diligent prayers of the Saints who are fervently praying without ceasing for the lost and needy.
And with God’s mercies abounding towards the needy and the destitute, that they may indeed be reached by the preaching of the Gospel, that they too may hear and receive the Good News of Jesus Christ and be healed; hence, receiving gladness in their hearts with all thankfulness and gratefulness unto God, who has ordained that whosoever comes to him in faith will indeed experience that great transition from darkness to light by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Note, the dire conditions mentioned above are a few out of many; however one of these conditions is the most deadly – the lack of knowledge of God and His Son Jesus Christ due to unbelief; and as a result of this lack of knowledge, the Word of God declares that it has consequently brought condemnation upon those who riotously indulge in sin against God, which in the end will proof deadly, putting all who refuse to turn from sin in great peril.
Romans 2:9 declares:
“There will be tribulation and distress for every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also of the Greek”
Hosea 4:6 also states:
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge …”
However note, in regards to man’s condition worldwide and the consequences of Sin, Jesus the God–sent Hope for the Whole World has come to deliver and to heal us by our faith in Him.
May this Message of Hope bring Revelation and Clarity to All who receive it, and may the Good News of Jesus Christ be received with fullness of Joy.
The Word Of God
The Holy Bible contains both the Old and New Testament; It is a collection of sacred texts or scriptures based on historical events and accounts of the mighty works of the Sovereign God.
These collections of scriptures are bonded together to form the Holy Bible. They are also known to be Canonical, this means based on the authenticity of the traditional writers (Holy men of God inspired by the Holy Spirit) and witness accounts and statements of the Power of God, these holy scriptures are declared to be a true authentic representation of God’s Word.
God is also prophetically bringing his Word to pass, so that the whole world may witness the Power of His Word, which transforms hearts by it’s prophetic, revelation, deliverance and transforming Power, by the Power of the Son.
The Authentic infallible Prophetic Word of God is declared by the Spirit of prophecy in which Holy Men of God being inspired by the Holy Spirit wrote down; this encountering with God resulted in revelations and powerful mysteries been revealed to the souls of man. See scripture 2 Peter 1:21 (below) which states this fact:
“For prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit”.
Let us consider 2 Peter 1:21–
Only by the Spirit of God can we receive Revelation
So, in terms of biblical revelations and declarations according to 2 Peter 1:21, there’s absolutely no other way that the spiritual revelations and prophecies of God revealed, could be given or received except by God’s intervention.
The Receiving of Wisdom
2 Timothy 3:14-15 (below) states:-
“But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus”.
According to 2 Timothy 3:14-15 the Word of God is able to make one wise unto Salvation by the Knowledge and faith of his Son Jesus Christ; therefore it is imperative that we know and understand that without this wisdom of God, we are like a ship without a rudder, tossed to and fro, drifting without direction, Lost. See also the 16th and 17th verse of this chapter (below) which affirms and substantiates the Correctional Power of the Word of God, 2 Timothy 3:16-17 states:
16 “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work”.
The Word of God has greatly and is still presently, Prophetically and Powerfully affecting the whole world by the billions, even throughout the generations, and is also considered to be the number One Book Worldwide.
Its Powerful Prophetic proclamations which is executed to the four corners of the earth is due to no other but the Incredible power of the Holy Spirit, to bring man back to the knowledge of the Light, thus reconciling him back in the spirit with God; This Powerful move of God is for no other reason but to aid and heal the damage caused by The Fall; hence, simultaneously eradicating the condemnation which had separated him from God.
The Word of God is also Sharper than any two-edged Sword. ref. Hebrews 4:12
The Word of God cuts through the heart reaching to the core of the spirit to reveal its condition; this spiritual process not only exposes the whole condition of the heart, it also brings accountability to God, how? it brings the heart to full transparency which God then Judges.
Let me expound further on this matter, this Spiritual process of bringing the heart to transparency thus exposing the heart’s condition, will immediately bring the individual to accountability concerning the commandments of God, in terms of whether his life is righteous according to the Laws of God, or ungodly and rebellious which goes against the Laws of God; Note, the Laws of God will inevitably expose the sins of man if he is not obeying it.
The Word of God is sharper than any two edged sword, for its cleansing power can annihilate all corruption in terms of getting rid of every uncleanness of the Heart; however carefully note, that this process of cleansing and healing is totally dependant on the individual’s surrendering of his life to obey God’s Word entirely. See ref. Hebrew 4:12-13:
“For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account”.
RECAP – Hebrew 4:12-13 (above) evidently declares to us that the Scriptures of God is likened as a Torch which shines in the heart of man, resulting in exposing the hidden things of a man’s heart; and as previously mentioned, this supernatural process of God will bring man to accountability to God, because God judges the heart of every man which must be found aligned with the Light of His Word.
MORE IN-DEPTH – WHO IS JESUS ?
JESUS IS LORD THE SON OF GOD
It is fundamentally important that the whole of mankind acquire knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ that they may be saved.
The Glory of God through his Son Jesus Christ is unsurpassed, Irrefutable and matchless; For God gave His only begotten Son, the sacrificial Lamb of God to purge every repentant man from his sins, by Faith.
He became the physical embodiment of God on earth who was manifested to carry out His Father’s will. He is also the Mediator between God and Man to save man, and only through this Mediator Jesus Christ can man be reconciled unto God, through faith in the Son.
See below Colossians 1:13-14 which reveals that the redeeming Power of God can indeed cleanse every man from his iniquities.
“… He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins”.
See also Romans 5:8 –
” …God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us”.
The Mission to Save is powerfully evident through the Lord Jesus Christ, for God who had manifested in the form of Jesus, the Saviour of mankind, is also presently demonstrating His redeeming Power throughout the whole world. See 1 Timothy 3:16 –
“And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, preached among the Gentiles, Believed on in the world, received up in glory”.
However Note, this Great Act of Mercy which brings reconciliation between God and man can easily be forfeited because of unbelief and refusal to turn from a sinful life.
Jesus is Equal to God
let us be careful to know that the mention of God and His Son does in No way separate or imply that they are two separate entities; For God himself has declared Jesus to be Equal with Him. Apostle Paul proclaims in Hebrews 1:8–
“But about the Son he says, Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom”.
See more Scriptures which substantiates the deity of Jesus and his equality with God.
“Giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. 13 He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
Colossians 1:12-17 (above) reveals that Jesus was present with His Father from the beginning of Creation as One, even to to the present; and that by Him were all things created. Jesus proclaims his equality with God in John 10:30
“I and my Father are one“.
This scripture again also declares Jesus to be the image of the Invisible God, and that all things were indeed created by Him, both visible and invisible, and that in Him all things consist.
I reiterate again, When Jesus was on Earth has a Man…. Philippines 2:5-6 reveals that Jesus was indeed in the form of God on the earth, yet note, he was also equal with God, see scripture below:
“Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God”.
Jesus Christ our Redeemer was manifested to redeem us from condemnation and everlasting punishment, see Scriptures below:
Titus 2:13-14 “Looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of Our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14 who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works”.
Jesus Is The Glory of the Father
“The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven” Hebrew 1:3
“For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father”. Philippines 2:9-11
Jesus Sovereignty Revealed throughout
According to the readings above which concerns the Sovereignty of Jesus Christ, God declares His Son not just by the Power of His Word but with Power and Glory and Honour. See some of the previous scripture links below:
Jesus manifestation on the earth wasn’t of human intervention but by the Power of God.
Jesus Came out of God
Jesus declares in John 16:28 “I came forth from the Father and have come into the world…..” – I reiterate again, this divine visitation of God through Jesus Christ who was divinely manifested on the Earth, was for no other reason but to carry out the Crucial Divine Assignment to save Man from the wrath to come – Glory To God
What is the Will of God? –
That All Men Be Saved
Jesus states his equality with God’s will in John 6:38 “For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me”.
So with the Powerful works in hand to do, Jesus went through as a Lamb to the Slaughter, for this was the Divine Will of God, the only way for man to be saved, the Sacrificial Lamb of God the Absolute Will of God.
See below subsequent scriptures relevant to the Will of God:
1 Timothy 2:3-4 “For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth”.
2 Peter 3:9 “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance”.
However Note, Isaiah 53:10 reveals that not only is the will of God that man be redeemed, but also that is son Jesus Christ goes through the suffering for mankind, that man may indeed be salvaged. See scripture: See Scripture –
“Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him, he has put Him to grief, when You make His soul an offering for sin….”
Jesus Humbles himself unto Death
And Jesus humbled himself and became obedient unto death (ref. Philippians 2:8).
Hebrew 2:9 ( below) describes in more detail the reality of the suffering of Jesus Christ for sinners, for he also payed the ransom price by His death, so that man may be set free from the chains of darkness, destroying it from our lives by our Faith in him:
“… Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, now crowned with glory and honor because He suffered death, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone”
God’s Declaration of His Son:-
Hebrews 1:8-9 Amplified Bible
…..about the Son the Father says to Him, “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, And the of absolute righteousness is the scepter of His kingdom. 9 “You have loved righteousness integrity, virtue, uprightness in purpose, and have hated lawlessness injustice, sin.
Therefore God, Your God, Has anointed You with the oil of gladness above Your companions.”
“For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are my Son; today I have become your Father” ? Or again, “I will be his Father, and he will be my Son” ? Hebrew 1:5
FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD AND HIS SON BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD
Fellowship with God not only comes with Mutual Association between God and the individual, but must also be coupled with the individual’s allegiance to God to agree with Him and His interest; This agreement or the mind resolved to love God must be accompanied with a mind made up to totally turn away from sin; this agreement between the individual and God inevitably seals the relationship, hence, bringing true Fellowship with God.
According to John 10:30 and 1 John 1:3 when we fellowship with the Holy Spirit of God we will also fellowship with His Son Jesus Christ for they are One; but see below Romans 8:9 which substantiates the Absolute need and paramountcy of the Holy Spirit in our lives, who also intervenes on the individual’s behalf to help him up to God’s standards of righteousness during the times of restoration and healing.
“However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you; But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him” Romans 8:9
SALVATION comes only through Jesus Christ
Salvation cannot be earned or purchased, neither can man save man from the utter destruction of evil that is to come; So, they that practice evil cannot escape the wrath of God. However, God has given us the solution to the problem in Colossians 3:5-6 (below) which gives us direct instructions to follow; therefore, Salvation is dependent on our obedience to God and His laws, BUT MUST be coupled with Faith in his Son Jesus Christ to bring about God’s saving Grace upon our lives. See below Colossians 3:5-6 :
SIN – the Solution to this problem:
… Put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience. Colossians 3:5-6
It is imperative that we receive in our Hearts the Word of God by adhering to it’s instructions, in particular Colossians 3:5-6; for it is not will of God for man to perish at His coming. For this reason Jesus Christ who is the God sent Saviour of the World was manifested, that we may be delivered from helplessness, to now being able to resist sin through faith and the Power of God. See below Acts 4:12 which affirms that only through Jesus Christ can this be done.
“Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” Acts 4:12
More about Jesus manifestation on Earth
John 1:14 declares:
“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth”.
Mary who was chosen by God, was overshadowed by the Divine visitation of God, and by the Power of God Jesus was divinely manifested in the womb of Mary to bring forth the Son of God.
See below Hebrew 2:14 which states why God used Mary?
“Because God’s children are human beings—made of flesh and blood—the Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the devil, who had the power of death”.
Please note, at times God evidently uses His servants on earth to accomplish His will; Mary a woman of God was just one of those servants, she obeyed God and then she left the earth just like the rest of his servants. She was no more than a woman of God. In other words She is NOT divine and should not be worshipped.
when the time came for her to deliver she gave birth, she was no different from any other woman that had given birth at that time, except that she was a virgin and was in the favour of God. however, she did get honour just like the servants of God, why? because she was chosen by God to carry out His will and she obeyed God throughout.
One must also note, that there are churches around the world that worship Mary by manmade images that represent her; they actually bow down to these images to idolize it and worship it; This is idolatry and sin. This sinful practice which is active amongst some Christians must never be tolerated, but instead be put down and exposed as a devilish act which has no bearings to the truth, for God hates idolatry. See the scripture below:
“You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; 5 you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me” Exodus 20:4-5
The Witness of the Saints
The Witness of the Saints has globally affected the whole world in a mighty way; not only has this happened in the Past but also in this present time; for God is manifesting His power so great on the earth, not only through the Saints, but also by the prophetic manifestations as they are fulfilled coupled by the demonstration of the Power of the God, thus declaring God’s Sovereignty throughout.
This demonstration of the glory of God cannot go unnoticed, the awesomeness of it which is coupled with God’s divine purpose is executed powerfully and witnessed all around the World.
Restatement – God is revealing to the Saints and to the whole world his Son Jesus Christ, hence, manifesting his Glory through the Son with Power.
The earlier disciples, John, Matthew, Mark, Luke…. also encountered the Power of God whilst with him; See below their witness statement (2 Peter 1:16-18):
“For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty. 17 For He received from God the Father, honour and glory, when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory: “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” 18 And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain”.
Let’s find out more about God – Who is God?
Learning and receiving revelation about God can be a mind blowing experience when we receive it in faith. This mind blowing experience brings us into recognition of the Love and Power of God, for in him there is Life, peace and His agape Love, which powerfully permeates throughout our lives.
The Names of God reveals the attributes of God.
The Biblical Hebrew descriptive names of God we encounter daily in the Holy Bible, ascertains throughout to exalt and reveal the Sovereignty of God, thus infinitely describing His divine attributes, revealing His Glory. See below some of the descriptive biblical names of God and their meaning with reference scriptures:
Biblical Transliterated Hebrew Names of God And their Meanings
Yahweh, Jehovah – Lord (Sovereign)
Elohim – God, Supreme one, strength and power (Powerful)
El-Shaddai – God Almighty (no other mightier)
Yahweh-Jireh– The Lord will provide (Sustainer)
Yahweh Tisidkenu – The Lord our righteousness (Holy)
El-Elyon – The Most High God (Above all gods)
Abba Father – Father,
Daddy (our spiritual Father)
Yahweh Nissi – The Lord is our banner (Protector)
The names of God transcends far above our earthly realm, for it utters in the spirit the heights and depths of God which is never ending, and far exceeds a man’s earthly acknowledgement but by the mercies of God He reveals it in the spirit:
“Be exalted above the heavens, O God; Let Your glory be above all the earth. Psalms 57:5
God is infinitely Immeasurable, Boundless, Endless, Holy, Powerful, Sovereign!
See Scripture references (below) in which God emphatically affirms his Godhead by the Power of His Word:
*God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
*For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
*Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; Yes, our God is merciful. Psalms 116:5
*Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy.
*Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.
*God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?
*And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.
1 John 4:16
*This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.
1 John 1:5
*For the LORD your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God. Deuteronomy 4:24
*Let the heavens declare His righteousness, For God Himself is Judge.
*God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful.
1 Corinthians 1:9
THERE’S ONLY ONE GOD!
The Word of God reveals that there is only One God; this declaration by God himself is revealed in Isaiah 44:6, in which he speaks to the children of Israel by His Prophet Isaiah: “Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts: ‘I am the first and I am the last, And there is no God besides Me”.
Nehemiah 9:6 also reveals:
“You alone are the LORD, you have made the heavens, The heaven of heavens with all their host, The earth and all that is on it, The seas and all that is in them You give life to all of them And the heavenly host bows down before You”.
1 Chronicles 29:11-12 further declares that not only is God the only true God, but He also reigns over earthly kings, rulers and masters.
God is also Omnipotent because His powers are unlimited; his Holy Spirit allows our human spirit to witness this infallible truth by the power of the prophetic and powerful works.
The Powerful Prophetic Revelations, with evident manifestations comes through to bring his Word to pass; this completely destroys the lies and doubts that the devil has fed man, hence, removing the spiritual scales from his eyes that had blinded him from the truth,
There is No Revelation Without God
Only God gives spiritual knowledge; hence, without the intervention of God we will remain limited to earthly knowledge, consequently remaining in the condition of being spiritually blind to God; This is a daunting and dangerous condition, which will eventually bring serious repercussions; Why? – Without the Light of the Gospel of The Good News of Jesus Christ who is God’s saving Grace for mankind, man will remain lost and separated from God.
See below 1 Corinthians 2:11-13 which confirms this Truth:
“For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual”.
According to the above (1 Corinthians 2:11-13) there is no way for the spirit of man to to know the Spirit of God but by God’s Spiritual intervention.
The Wonders of God
God Commands the Earthly Elements!
“Thus says the Lord, who gives the sun for light by day and the fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar, the Lord of hosts is his name” (Jeremiah 31:35)
By the Word of God All things were created; God commanded: “let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth, across the face of the Firmament of the heavens” (Genesis 1:20-21), “…. (vs 21) And God saw that it was good”.
All that God commands must be executed, for all of His creation is subject to HIS will; Therefore His Word cannot and will not return to him void; For whatever God utters it Will come to pass, for every word of God is Active and Powerful.
God is Omnipresent –meaning…
God is present everywhere all at the same time, boundless. The eternal God cannot be restricted by the Laws of nature, nor can he be spatially contained; His presence is vast throughout the universe and his presence fills the whole earth. David proclaimed “Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?” Psalm 139:7-18. In this particular scripture David makes clear by revelation that there’s no hiding place from God, for his presence fills his entire creation.
God is Omniscient –
God knows all things. His knowledge is infinite and beyond human comprehension, Immeasurable and Powerful; for His knowledge goes beyond earthly fleshy limitations, for this reason who can fathom this great God? for he’s pass finding out; but blessed be God he is revealing mysteries by his Holy Spirit;
Why should we acknowledge God?
Answer: God is our Spiritual Father, the Sustaining Power who gives and maintains life, keeping our life by his Life Giving Spirit; and it is an absolute certainty that we cannot exist without him.
Genesis 2:7 declares “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul”. Again, according to this scripture, God is declared the Life Giver who is worthy of all adoration and worship for He has given us life. We honour our earthly fathers and also the earthly kings, but the King of kings, the Father of all fathers, the sustainer of all the living, the Creator of all should be honoured above all in terms of his God-ship and Worshipped, for there is no other God beside Him;
Revelation 14:7 powerfully affirms His God-Ship over all His Creations “and he said with a loud voice, Fear God, and give Him glory, because the hour of His judgement has come; worship Him who made the heaven and the earth and sea and springs of waters.”
God is working powerfully to help his fallen children
In the midst of life with its turmoils of iniquity and rebellion, God is working powerfully to help his fallen children; and even though man has done nothing to deserve it, God would rather Life than Death….. “For I take no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Sovereign Lord. Repent and Live” Ezekiel 18:32
Psalms 145:14 reveals the Love that God has for His children: “The Lord upholds all who are falling and raises up all who are bowed down”.
According to 1 John 4:9 it is absolutely the will of God that we acknowledge His unconditional love which is coupled with his Saving Grace; However, I must reiterate once again that this acknowledgement comes through faith in his Son Jesus Christ.
Note – If anyone dares to think in his heart that there’s no need to acknowledge God, this is a dangerous and ill-fated thing to do; and if this dangerous belief is not eliminated it will consequently become a destructive element in the individual’s life, which will eventually result in disastrous consequences beyond his control; for it is certain man cannot fight God, neither can he escape that destination of everlasting damnation, which is prepared for that wicked evil spirit Satan and the fallen angels, and also for those who served sin.
And they who choose to live that sinful life, they have no power to redeem themselves.
God fights for those who have surrendered to Him strengthening them in the Battle against Sin
Deuteronomy 31:6 declares the importance of our acknowledgement of God in our lives – He is the Sovereign God and He protects His children by His mercies.
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6
2 Chronicles 20:15 also declares when we stand with him in Faith…..
“…Thus saith the Lord unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s ”
However, God can show mercy to those who need help;
According to Romans 9:15 (below) God can show mercy to those who don’t know him, who are weak, needy or in danger; this intervention of God’s help is to purely execute His will and purposes for that individual to receive deliverance, to bring him to acknowledge God.
“I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I will have compassion”.
Nonetheless Psalms 37:38 reveals “… transgressors will be altogether destroyed; The posterity of the wicked will be cut off”.
It is extremely paramount for all to take in account Psalms 37:38 (above) and Proverbs 3:6 (below)
“In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Everyone is God accountable in terms of acknowledgment and adherence to His Godhead.
However, God’s Honour and Holiness will stand forever, and they who go against the Sovereign God and his Honour, to dishonour him by disobedience and riotous living will certainly reap what they sow; therefore every individual must be prepared to denounce sin by turning away from it. Note, the individual can only be Strong when he actively turns away from all his iniquities.
To Love God…..
Jesus declares in Luke 10:27 “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind”….. He also reveals in John 14:15 “If you love me, keep my commandments”; Our relationship with God in terms of Holy living and our crucial decision to diligently and wholeheartedly turn from sin will most certainly determined the degree of Love we have for God.
To love God wholeheartedly is to acknowledge His Word with all obedience, totally denying sinful desires to please him, to also stand with him in agreement with all understanding and wisdom.
So why is it so important to love God with all our heart ? Loving God in the Light of His Word is the vital indicator which will show God that we prefer righteousness not sinfulness, for sin has derived from the evil one.
The Sovereign Righteous God abhors all sin, therefore to turn from sin is to show due Honour to God, evidently honouring his Holiness and His God-ship. See Leviticus 19:2 in which God calls for Holiness.
“Speak to all the congregation of the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘You shall be holy, for I the LORD your God am holy”.
Note, this Due Honour shown to God begins to build a relationship with God, thus laying the foundation of Mutual Reconciliation with him, so that by the Spirit of God we receive peace with Him.
Psalms 119:165 reveals “Great peace have those who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble”.
One Example of showing Love to God:
Loving God demands that we turn away from sinful things. For example one may be part of a group of colleagues who do not know God, yet one enjoys their company; however this individual’s genuine love for God demands that as a Born again Christian he must endeavour to turn away from the things that is no good to do or say; this includes turning away from sinful acts such as maliciously talking about someone, deception, lies, backbiting, deceit, jealousy…. which can be easily found among peers or groups.
This showing Love for God takes determination, diligence and vigilance; therefore this genuine love for God should have us in readiness to be courageously prepared to turn away from the things that we come across in our every day lives that goes against God’s righteousness. We must be prepared to make the sacrifice to stand up for God’s righteousness, and also be prepared to defend it at all cost in terms of rejecting all sinful acts; This is a sure indicator that we’re no longer pursuing to live sinful lives, but instead living To Love God and to enjoy our New Life in him with His help. See below Romans 12:1:
“Therefore I urge you, brethren by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship”.
What is the Fear of the Lord?
The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way, And the perverse mouth I hate. Proverbs 8:13
Living the life of obedience to God is to show him Godly Fear; And because we truly adore and love God, honouring him, and knowing also that he hates sin, and that he righteously punishes those who commits it, brings us into Holiness and allegiance unto Him.
Note, this fear is not pertaining to the worldly fears that man encounters daily, but a Holy fear which shows that we honour His Godhead and Glory.
The Spiritual Realm:
The spiritual dimension of God’s creation, unseen by human eyes.
In this dimension of God’s creation, there exist two spiritual realities:
A. God’s Spiritual Kingdom of light and righteousness and His Heavenly places.
B. the evil spiritual realm of sin and darkness where the devil and the fallen angels with their evil forces are operating.
When we as a society or person encounter anything evil such as disasters and evil occurrences, be aware that this is a direct result of evil spiritual forces at work.
It is therefore important for all Christians even the whole world to recognise evil occurrences for what it is, and fight against it by the power of prayer and faith in God and his Son Jesus Christ. It must be done with a genuine heart of loving God, and seeking him by his grace, which will be coupled with God’s mercy and spiritual protection; again I reiterate, this comes only through faith in his Son Jesus Christ.
Note again, that God in his mercies can allow an individual to be delivered from danger, even if he does not know God for himself, however this is according to God’s divine plan, will and purpose for that individual.
In the Spiritual heavenly realm of God’s Glory exist God’s throne, and around his throne the angels of God whom we cannot see give glory to God; See reference scripture below:
“All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures; and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God” Revelation 7:11
Note, despite the condition of man, God allows those who have accepted Jesus Christ and those he chooses to reveal himself to encounter His glory in the Spirit Realm; However, let me reiterate again that this can only happen by:
(a) The mercies of God
(b) Through faith
(c) During transformation
(d) During the encountering of the visitation of God.
(e) By the Power of Holy Spirit.
Hence by this Spiritual association with God and his Son, we can go through to encounter and experience the awesomeness of the Spiritual realm of God by the Power of God receiving Eternal Life
