The LIVING GOD #HIDES

#Tornado #Alarms were blaring this week across U.S.  Did you have to#run and hide in your #closet /basement/ safe room?  I know I did and thankfully the tornado did not touch down here!  The storm devastation cost many others everything.  Thankfully many lives were spared because they heeded the warnings and got to their safe haven.  The prayer of David in Ps.27 is close to my heart, “One thing have I desired of the LORD, and seek, that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of  my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and inquire in His temple. For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion: in the secret of His tabernacle shall HE HIDE ME; He shall set me up upon a rock.”  Ps.32:5-7″I acknowledged my sin unto the LORD, and my iniquity have I not hid. …God forgave my sin.  For this shall everyone that is godly pray unto Lord in a time when thou may be found surely in the floods of great waters they shall not reach him. THOU ARE MY HIDING PLACE; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance.”  Ps. 31:19-21 “Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou has laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!  THOU SHALL HIDE THEM IN THE SECRET OF THY PRESENCE from the pride of man:  thou shall keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.  Blessed be the LORD; for He has shewed me His marvelous kindness in a fortified city.”

What does it mean to be sealed?  In times past, #privacy, #confidence, and #encryption were insured with a seal on the outside of a letter or legal document.  What does a transaction have to do with our salvation?  What are the terms?  What consideration had to be paid?  How is it delivered?  What are some verses that attest to the seal on our salvation?  Like a child in your own family, how does a child of God know that they will be cared for?  Like the king’s seal in ancient times, how is God’s seal treated?

A Fresh Start

The LIVING GOD #COMING

Years ago while in Jamaica, I heard, “Me soon come” which was spoken by #Jamaican #friends as they parted company with the implied intent that they would return to have fellowship as soon as possible.  I have a smile on my face when I remember their sincere words spoken with the desire to see one another again.  There are words in the Bible that not only give me comfort but assurance that Jesus is coming back for me!  “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, says the LORD, which is, and which was, and which IS TO COME, THE ALMIGHTY.” Rev.1:8  “Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD:  His going forth is prepared as the morning; and HE SHALL COME  UNTO  US as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.” Hosea 6:3  “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock; if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I WILL COME IN TO HIM AND WILL SUP WITH HIM AND HE WITH ME.”  REV.3:20

Is it possible to have #Christmas without #Jesus Christ?  There are an awful lot of people out there trying to do just that these days. But without the proper reason for the celebration included, these #inclusive, #politicallycorrect festivities go off the rails.  Was the birth of the Savior an afterthought, a bandaid for the human condition or was it planned and foretold far in advance of His arrival?  What reasons would God have to send part of Himself, His Son, down to our level?  Brother Tommy takes us through a few of the hundreds of prophecies about the birth of the Savior.  Is Jesus just over 2000 years old?  What can we learn about the proper celebration of the Savior’s birth from those that were there at the time?  Many at the time thought the Messiah would come as a warrior King to straighten everybody out, but we should all be thankful that God’s perfect plan was more about Saving Grace than swift retribution.  How much higher are God’s plans than ours?  Praise Him. May you and your family have a blessed Christmas.

A Christmas Celebration

The LIVING GOD#IS

Is it not the day of #knockoffs?  Can you tell the #genuine for the #copied.  Notice the #Isis name.  Is it an imitation trying to replace the original “GOD WHO IS?   What does the Bible say?  Rev.1:8 “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, says the LORD, WHICH IS, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.”   Ps.71:19 “Thy righteousness O GOD IS very high…who is like unto thee!” Rev.1:5 “from JESUS CHRIST WHO IS the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto Him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in His own blood”  Jesus gave His own blood for us not like those taking others’  blood for their own supposed redemption.  You see, GOD IS LOVE and if you will turn, seek, ask, and accept Him, you get the real omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent Lord.  Luke17:21 “Neither shall they say, lo here or lo there. for behold, the kingdom of GOD IS WITHIN YOU.”   May you choose to rejoice in His sacrificial birth, death, and resurrection because of His great love for each of us made in His image so that we may have fellowship right now with the LIVING GOD WHO IS.  “The LORD LIVES…and let the God of my salvation be exalted.” Psalm 19:46

#Reparations for #privilege, how long have people struggled with this idea?  Here we see King David attempting to repay God for His blessings.  Can we pay back God?  What can we take from God that makes Him happy?  What part does prayer play in showing our gratitude?  How about vows you have made to God, are you honoring them?  Do you even remember what you said you would do if only God got you through that last scrape?  Have you sacrificed anything for the Lord?  What does that even mean in today’s terms?  All of these activities show thankfulness, but what good are they if nothing changes?
