I have re-arranged these words from a popular phrase amongst some most bereaved of fellows; for what a great misfortune it is indeed upon he who has NOthing to say about Jesus Christ! What a hollowness of life.
Colossians 1:12(Ed.) – Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light;
Thank You, Jesus Christ!
I do NOT attempt to “prove” that God Is. I am NOT going to beg anyone to believe that they themselves exist; because any sincere one would consider, that the mere existence of oneself is testimony enough that God Is. Such an attempt would be an exercise in emptiness, of no spiritual value, of zero intellectual merit; a folly.
But “does God not exISt!” is the very essence of my journey back Home. And the tools for this task are nothing but Consider-ation, and Sincerity to Truth. Ever asked yourself WHY God actually decided to be physically invisible to you? …Let me show you something;
Psalms 8:3,7,8 (Ed.) – …when I consider the works of Your fingers, …moon, stars… sheep, oxen… beasts of the field,… birds of the air …fish of the sea …which thou have ordained…
Man is not the strongest of the creation. Not the wisest; not the biggest. Not the one with the best memory, not the fastest. Not the most resilient, not the most colorful, or beautiful. Or the most lawful, cheerful, or honest.
Psalms 8:4 – What is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you visit him?
Psalms 8:5 – For thou hath made Him a little lower than the angels and have crowned him with glory and honour;
Psalms 8:6 – Thou made him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hath put all things under his feet
The entire creation is speaking to me that God Is! Even the ground on which I am standing is telling me that God Is!
King David was “a man after God’s own heart”. And so it is little wonder his Psalms are full of Life and prophecy. If one does not pick anything at all from the Psalms, one should notice just how to worship God in “Spirit and truth”; as “God is looking for just such”; John 4:23.
A key mood in the Psalms’ worship and praise is “considering” in “awe”.
And God Himself has left us some to chew on; given to a man who found himself with questions along the lines of ours; Job 38-40.
Consider. Consider. Consider! I myself am immersed steep in considering! Let me leave you alone and go and consider, please.
Job 38:33 – Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?
Job 39:13 – Gavest thou the goodly wings unto the peacocks? or wings and feathers unto the ostrich?
Job 39:14 – Which leaveth her eggs in the earth, and warmeth them in dust,
Job 39:15 – And forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may break them.
Job 39:17 – Because God hath deprived her of wisdom, neither hath he imparted to her understanding.
Before I leave you, let’s consider this together;
I spend an hour alone speaking to someone I cannot see with my physical eyes. In worship. In thanks. Sometimes with a heavy heart. Sometimes in tears. In praise. Then I come out joyous. Relieved. With a heart filled with PEACE. From where did that come? Could I have been speaking with someOne? Hmmm.
Jesus Christ is the Truth and has left us the Holy Spirit who will guide us into all truth; John 16:13. Guide; we have to be moving! And Consider-ing is the vehicle.
Jesus Christ is coming back NOW. The end is not near; it is HERE! Hell is real. And it is for ALL those who do not believe in Jesus Christ as God and Savior. Believe in Jesus Christ in your heart today and confess Him with your mouth. And let Life come into you. THEN you can access Heaven and be saved.
