He is the Alpha and Omega, Great and Wonderful Creator, Immutable and Righteous Father, I AM that I AM, the Righteous and Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace, Glorious Immanuel, Yahweh, Jehovah, El Shaddai, Yeshua, are only a small fraction of the names that are attributed to God, and in reference to His eternal and spectacular Glory and universal authority.
God's Power and Glory are on display everyday in, and through, the Heavens, and in all the universe. Every galaxies, every star, and every formation of every cloud reflects God's Awesome Wonders.
God's Love reveals His Wondrous Wisdom in the conception and birth of every child, the unconditional love is complete in every new life.
Nature itself declares Knowledge of the depth of God's great Love and in the power of His forgiveness of sin, and in His undeniable Glory in every changed life.
“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me” (Psalms 51:10).
God's immutable Love and Mercy is in the image of our Lord Jesus Christ, His Precious Blood shed for us on Calvary for the redemption of the souls of all man kind, in His Glorious resurrection, and in His promise to one day return to receive His faithful. His promise and Understanding with the coming of the Holy Spirit. And bringing with Him all power from Heaven to teach us to live a life pleasing to God.
"But without faith it is impossible to please Him [God]; for he that cometh to God must believe that "HE IS", and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6)
His rewards are in the Wisdom, Knowledge, and Understanding of His Glorious Person. Righteousness and Holiness are found only in His presence, and are revealed to those who diligently seeks Him with all their heart. To love God is a joy beyond description.
And ye shall know the Truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32).
We are made free from the bondage of sin that keep you from having a complete and everlasting relationship with Jesus Christ as your intimate Lord and Savior.
You see folks, all doubts and fears are due to the lack of commitment to the TRUTH. And what is the Truth? The Bible tells us that Jesus IS the Truth. It is in your unwavering commitment to the Truth that you will find the faith that can move mountains.
Jesus saith unto him (Thomas), “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me” (John 14:6).
Faith is your unquestionable obedience to the Truth of the Word of God.
Faith is your complete trust in Gods abilities. “With God, nothing is impossible”.
Faith is your commitment to do the right things, because it's the right thing to do.
Faith is your undeniable and unwavering confidence in the depth of Gods Love.
Faith is your assurance that God has redeemed you by the Blood of Jesus Christ.
Faith is in His indisputable universal power and ability of God to accomplish the work He has begun in you, and given His Holy Spirit to accomplish His Will for your life.
In other words, the strength of your faith depends on how strong your love is for our Lord Jesus Christ. Do you love Him today? I mean do you really love our Lord so much that He is your complete existence, woven in the very fabric of your life?
Our Churches today needs to return to the uncompromising truth of the Word of God. And realize that faith is a journey that will always lead you to the most Glorious and Intimate relationship with Jesus Christ through the Knowledge of Gods Will, a greater Understanding of His Eternal Love, and His willingness to forgiveness us of all sins that separates us from fellowship with the Father, who is Righteous and Just, and being confident that God is Holy and Merciful, full of Love, Grace, and Compassion, and being persuaded by the Truth of His Word.
"For verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, remove from here to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you” (Matthew 17:20).
Let's face it Church, it's high tide, and the time is now, to plant your God given measure of faith in fertile ground which is the Word of God, and the truth of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment, because as he is, so are we in this world. (1 John 4:17)
Examine yourselves, whether you are in the faith; prove yourselves. Know ye not ourselves how Jesus Christ is in you, unless you are discredited? (2 Corinthians 13:5)
But God will always honor the choices He has given you. But it's what you do with your faith that will honor God.
No other way could your fears ever be conquer, then to “Trust in God's Love”.
That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God (1 Corinthians 2:5)
And it's “Your commitment” to the Truth, who is Christ our Lord, then the answer becomes very clear in that, it's in your unwavering Love for God that will conquer all fears.
So why do a large number of Christians still experience fear, anxiety when they claim to love God?
I love God, so why am I still consumed with doubts or uncertainty?
“Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God; for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth He any man;
But every man is tempted when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. (James 1: 13&14)
Every great man and woman of the Bible had their season of uncertainty. Even the Prophet Elijah, though he called down fire from Heaven, fled in fear for his life from Jezebel who wanted to kill him (1 Kings 17:1,
1 Kings 18, 1 Kings 19).
What made Elijah a mighty man of God was his faith and trust in God, and that God WILL keep His Word. His faith prevail through his fears.
Then there was a mighty woman called Esther, who was a Jewish maiden and raised by Mor'decai after the death of her mother and father (Ester2:7).
God called her to deliver her people Israel (who were held captive in Persia at the time) from massacre by King Ahasuerur by becoming his wife, thus, Queen Esther. Her love for God, and for her people, was greater than her fear of losing her own life (Esther 5:1-7, Esther 7:1-10).
It was Queen Esther's Love for God that was greater than her fears, that she was able to walk in the faith that defeated her fear and saved Israel.
Mary, the Blessed mother of our Lord Jesus, Who, while espoused to Joseph, was visited by the angel Gabriel to announce the virgin birth of Jesus.
And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS (Luke 1:30&31).
Mary knew what the law was. She knew what Joseph could have had her publicly stoned. But she was still confused. Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered, and said unto her, The Holy Spirit shall come upon thee, and the Power of the Highest shall overshadow thee; therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy words. (Luke 1:34,35,38)
I think Mary exhibited the greatest of all faith when she surrendered her will to the Will of God.
I think acknowledgment is in order concerning the faith of Joseph as well.
Then Joseph, her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make he a public example, was minded to put her away privately. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary, thy wife; for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 1:19 & 20)
What made them mighty men and women of God was the fact that, through their own fears, the power of the Truth was ingrained in their heart, and was the strength in faith that made them courageous. And by their faith, in the face of death, that conquered their fears.
You see folks, they were just ordinary people just like you and me, but had a mighty purpose to stand strong in the Power of God in the face of their enemies.
You see, faith isn't who you think God is, but rather true faith is what your heart knows He is, and how willing you are to surrender your life to Him.
Most of us will probably never face those kinds of situations. Our lives may never be in jeopardy because of our faith. But the facts still remains that God, who is Mighty to save, will always be the reason for your faith, trust, loyalty, and confidence in the face of a troubled and violent world.
Today we live in a society full of many uncertainties. Fear has taken a strong hold on our lives. We have been consumed by the media with pain, suffering and death all over the world. Evil lies seems to have taken over our society, especially the main stream media.
People are afraid of riots, continuous wars, terrorism, natural disasters to name a few. We've become afraid to look at each other in fear of retaliation of some sort.
We've become a skeptical and frustrated society, willing to do things we thought we would never do in the name of survival.
But fear not, there is Hope. There has always been Hope, we're just looking in the wrong places.
Jesus said I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen (Matthew 28:20).
Our Great and Wonderful Creator, Immutable and Righteous Father, God who knows entirely the hearts and thoughts of all mankind, has always protected and defended a chosen remnant from His people.
But as many as received Him, to them gave he power to become the sons (children) of God, even to them that believe on His Name (John 1:12);
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, establish, strengthen, settle you.
To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. (1 Peter 5: 6-11)
But guard your hearts. Put on the breastplate of righteousness. Be strong in your knowledge of the Truth. Be filled with the Holy Spirit. And in all things seek Wisdom and Understanding, that you may be able to recognize the signs of the times when Jesus our Savior will return in all Power and Glory as promised.
And I saw Heaven opened and, behold, a white horse; and He that sat upon him was called Faithful
and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns; and He had a name written, that no man knew, but He Himself.
And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood; and His Name is called The Word of God. And He had on His vesture and on His thigh a name written, (Revelation 19: 1-13, 16).
And in that day man will not be without excuse. He will not only blame God, but he'll blame the church as well for his demise.
He will say “I didn't know, no one told me”. But they did know, but chose to ignore the Word of God.
They chose not to believe on Him as Creator, Lord and Savior.
But beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
How they told you there should be mockers in the last time (days), who should walk after their own ungodly lust.
These are they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit,
But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit,
Keeping yourselves in the Love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life
When you sincerely, and willfully, give yourself over to the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and apply the Truth taught to you by the Holy Spirit in your life style and in every aspect of your life, When Jesus Christ, once and for all becomes the reason for your being and consumes your entire existence, When you can't live one single day without yearning to be with Him and in His presence, When you finally learn how to walk by faith and not by sight, then you will have no reason to fear the things of this world. Because through your faith that, if God be for you who can be against you, is the faith that conquers all fear, And that, my friends, is what the Bible means by “without faith it is impossible to please Him.
And if you want to please God, then you must believe that HE IS, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.
If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; (Colossians 1:23)
It's all about Christ, and Him Crucified, who has given you your measure of faith in Him. The strength of your faith is rooted in the Truth, and the fruit it will produce.
Be strong in the Lord, and in the Power of His Might.
Life Is Short, And Eternity Awaits.
