THE LIVING GOD – THE SAME

Do words take on new meanings with the passing of time?  Just in my lifetime, I hear words used with completely different contexts.  Does anything stay the #same?  I can attest that I have seen and observed many changes in people, governments, churches, countries, landscapes, and weather!  It seems to me that the worldwide internet has brought about changes in all areas of our lives.  We have become very dependent on wireless technology.  Long before all this computer connection, we had and have a connection to “the live – living God” who never fails!   I find it so comforting to have as my source the Lord who never changes!  Yes, I have a lifetime warranty written in God’s holy word – the Bible.  Do You?  “THE SAME LORD OVER ALL IS RICH UNTO ALL THAT CALL UPON HIM and whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”Rom.10:12,13  He actually listens to you.  ” GOD IS THE SAME, and thy years shall have no end.”  Ps. 102:27  God’s word was true in yesteryears and it is the same truth today – never changing!  “JESUS CHRIST THE SAME YESTERDAY, AND TODAY, AND FOREVER” Heb.13:8

Who is the #HolySpirit?  Probably the least discussed and possibly the least understood part of the #Triune #God.  Today, we start a series of messages looking at references to the Holy Spirit and what we can learn from them.  What is the first mention of the Holy Spirit in the Bible?  Was it in the New Testament or the Old Testament?  When did the Spirit of God appear as a dove?  Was it more than once?  Why would God’s Spirit choose to appear as a dove?  What are the parallels?

THE LIVING GOD – SHIELD

With all the #catastrophes happening today, do you ever think it would be nice to have a #protective #shield around you at all times?  There are #wars and rumors of war!  Then we have devastating mass #shootings in #schools and on assembled #crowds of the unaware!  Seems to me that more and more #storms, floods, hurricanes, tornados, volcanos, and earthquakes are happening with regularity.  These are devastating disasters beyond our control.  I just had two huge pecan trees to break during rain/wind and flatten the garage.   What can you do?  To whom  do you turn? I knew I had to deal with the circumstance by humbly thanking God for His shield of protection and then asking for His wisdom.  My situation is minor compared to all that President Trump is facing; however, GOD ALMIGHTY has the answer for the great and the small. “EVER WORD OF GOD IS PURE:  HE IS A SHIELD UNTO THEM THAT PUT THEIR TRUST IN HIM.” Prov.30:5    What time I am afraid, I will trust in the LORD.  “GOD IS MY HIDING PLACE AND MY SHIELD: I hope in His word…Uphold me according to thy word, that I may live: and not be ashamed of my hope.  Hold me up, and I shall be safe.” Psalm 119:114-117

Have you ever been to a #restaurant that served #bread before the meal, and it was so good you just had to eat there again #cheddarbiscuits?  Is there a better bread, one that gives eternal life?  Now I am not saying communion saves your soul.  But, rather the sacrifice represented by this sacrament makes it possible to be forgiven.  What do the elements represent?  What should communion mean to us?  What is our part in this ceremony and what is God’s part?

THE LIVING GOD – BEAUTY

THE LIVING GOD – BEAUTY

There is #beauty all around us especially this time of the year as everything has #fresh new leaves with beautiful #blooms.  Growing up on the Texas panhandle we didn’t have many trees or blossoms without pampering them with extra water and care.  So…this enabled me to I have a full view of the magnificent color of the spectacular sunsets.   Through the years now I have lived in the mountains, by the seashore, on the plains, in desert basins,which have been in cities and farming communities that enabled me to see God’s beautiful creations wherever He has placed me.   I realized all of this is a reflection of the Creator.  Zech.9:17 “How great is GOD’S BEAUTY”  Isaiah 33:17 “Your eyes shall see HIM IN HIS BEAUTY”  1Chron.16:29 “Worship the LORD IN THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS”  As we spend time with friends, we tend to take on some of their demeanor in our speech, outlook, and makeup.  I had two unusual experiences last year after turning eighty.  I was in a hardware store when one of the lady employees came to help me with a purchase and she said, “You are beautiful.”  I said, “thank you!”  In all my years, I had never had anyone say that – much less now.   Then several months later, I was standing in line at the post office when a young man walked in to stand behind me and he said, “Madam, I just want to tell you that you are beautiful”  Now I know God works in mysterious ways; however, my after thought to their commits was that they may have noticed a reflection of my Lord with whom I spend the most time!  “LORD takes pleasure in His people:  HE WILL BEAUTIFY THE MEEK WITH SALVATION” Ps. 149:4  “LET THE BEAUTY OF THE LORD BE UPON US” Ps.90:17

What effect does #prayer have on the people around us?  I see so many people scoff at others that say, “I will pray for you.’  But the Bible says that the prayers of the righteous accomplish much.  Did Jesus, the Son of God, pray and did He tell us to do the same?  Did Jesus also show us how?  For whom did Christ show us that we should pray?  How should we pray for them?  What did Paul, the missionary, teach us about prayer?
