Truth Revealed By God
Chapter: Ancient of Days (Pages 47-50)
READ Philippians 2:9-13. Therefore also God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE SHOULD BOW, of those who are in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work in you both to will and to work for His good pleasure (NASB).
READ Romans 1:18-21. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodli- ness and unrighteousness of men, who sup- press the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invis- ible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being under- stood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God, or give thanks; but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened (NASB).
At the Revelation of Jesus, we are all transformed by seeing and recognizing Him in His divinity. The name above all names is what we honor. All of our works and striving is to be after the Lord. We are to obey Him and seek His face. For when we see His face, we know that He has the power to do all things, for nothing is impossible with God. There is always a solution to be discovered. By maintaining righteousness, we live a life fulfilling to God. This is the truth of life, which surpasses all other means of understanding. It is important to “work out” your salvation, knowing God’s power and strength. He wishes to help those in need, for His Son is the sacrifice that redeems us from all sin. God forewarns the unrighteous and ungodly as to what shall happen by denying His Son. It has now been made evident that He is present at all times and that He knows the hearts and minds of all of creation. How could one not desire to be secured into a divine state that He offers? It is visible in the faces of believers and those who put their trust in God. Give God the credit for He created you in order that you should live a life full of meaning, hope, and joy. Do not be flawed by the world without God. Do not allow your heart to be darkened, for it is a scary place to be. We are to walk in the light, the true light which is brought by Christ. We do not speculate or judge, but instead we know Him by the truth which He reveals that gives us life.
Truth Revealed By God
Chapter: Arm of The Lord (Pages 51-54)
READ Psalm 19:7-9. The law of the Lord is perfect, refreshing the soul. The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes. The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever. The decrees of the Lord are firm, and all of them are righ- teous (NASB).
READ Isaiah 65:17-20. For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former things shall not be remembered or come to mind.. But be glad and rejoice forever in what I create; For behold, I create Jerusalem for rejoicing, and her people for gladness. I will also rejoice in Jerusalem, and be glad in My people; and there will no longer be heard in her the voice of weeping and the sound of crying. No longer will there be an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who does not live out his days; for the youth will die at the age of one hundred and the one who does not reach the age of one hundred shall be thought accursed (NASB).
READ Ephesians 2:1-7. And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging in the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest. But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in heavenly places, in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come, He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus (NASB).
READ Revelation 22:1-5. …And he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. And on either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall no longer be any curse; and the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His bond-servants shall serve Him; and they shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. And there shall no longer be any night; and they shall not have the need of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because the Lord God shall illumine them; and they shall reign for- ever and ever (NASB).
We shall know that the radiance of God is before us when we focus upon these scriptures. His ways and statutes are righteous and trustworthy, meaning there is no fault or discourse in what He asks of us as Christians. God is very adamant about us adhering to His commands, in order that we become a new being with new understanding and wisdom. Purity is at the heart of this wisdom. In the New Jerusalem, we shall see no more injustice, unrighteousness, suffering, or any typeof evil. For in our new life and in God’s new creation, we will see prolonged days and life- times that only God can ordain. We do not want to be unworthy of living and remain dead in our trespasses. God is very firm about being aware of the prince of the power of the air, who has caused many to fall into evil desires and actions. The prince of the power of the air has attacked many who have been unaware. Wearing the full armor of God at all times prevents the devil from approaching us and attacking us spiritually. God will understand if we ask for His help in prayer and use our swords (The Word of God and Testimony of Jesus) to shun away all evil. For we know by prophecy that the evil of this world will be cast into the lake of fire and brimstone. The prince of the power of the air will be no more. This is what is to come and we trust God to fulfill His words.
We await the Lamb of God, The Lion of the tribe of Judah, to establish His throne and write His name on our foreheads (Code)-He will differentiate those who have studied the Word of God versus the words of the world…. always make comparisons…No real power exists without God behind your words….We seek the time when the true light of Christ is all that exists, when there is no need of a lamp or the sun. This illumination will be so radiant and brilliant that we cannot begin to imagine the power that will be restored, in blessing all of those who have maintained the course and not chosen to follow the ways of the world. This dwelling will be for those that have overcome adversity (Do not ever embrace evil…stay away from it…) and fought for what is right in the sight of God. All of the nations and tribes of the world will be called to His glory. We can expect this new creation to be the end of the world that we know and the beginning of the Lamb’s reign.
We await and are at rest assured that He is coming…You will know him by his truth...
