The Wonderful Works Of God


Star Stuff
One thing that never gets old to me is how this physical realm, this universe is set up and how it works. Have you ever considered the wonderful works of God? How atoms make up everything and how they themselves are manufactured in the hearts of stars? Our physical bodies are comprised of atoms, produced from stars long since dead, that have grouped together forming molecules. Which in turn grouped together to make this amazing planet and all of the life that is found on it. Everything... including us!... is truly made up of "star stuff!"
And yet... as amazing as all the wonderful works of God are... God has placed His Word above all the magnificence of the physical realm. Of all that God is and what He's capable of doing, in His mind His Word is His greatest achievement! His Word say's so,

Psalms 138:2
2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

God "magnified" His Word above all His name represents! Including the physical realm He built! Why is what we call "The Holy Bible" so important to Him? Because it's His lifeline to His people! When we're born into this world we are born into the kingdom of the world. Of which the god of this world (you may know him as Satan) has authority of. (It's Satan's world so do us all a favor and quit blaming God for the evil in the world. Geeze!) All we humans are born into the world belonging to him. Until some of us "stumble" across God's Word, read it, work it, change sides and see just how terrible things have become and been since Satan received the authority he still now enjoys. Using it to run the world as he sees fit. Which first and foremost consists of hindering and obstructing God's plan of saving a few humans from His judgement... which is future, shown in the book of Revelation. This whole world is set-up to keep people from knowing this stuff and reckons it as foolishness. It's this "Holy Bible" that gets us to the new birth (receiving God's gift of holy spirit) which aids us in acquiring an accurate understanding of the Holy Bible which in turn gives us an accurate understanding of the spiritual realm, our place in it and the legalities in "the Kingdom of God." This is our escape from the kingdom of the world! By becoming aware of what's really goin' on... and choose to get out while the gittin's good!
Did you know that... if the "mystery" in which we live now was known by the spirit realm before Jesus' resurrection the devil spirits never would've killed him? It's true!
1 Corinthians 2:7-9
7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
8 Which none of the *princes of this world (* = the devil spirits) knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

(*= added by the author for your clarification)

Hebrews 2:14
Obviously they (the devil spirits) were ignorant of the legalities of the death of the Christ. (The older I get the more I see these spirits... although they can pull off some crazy feats and they are dangerous... really aren't very bright.) If they would've known that the life of the Christ freely given would usher in the mystery and give God direct access to HIs people and that His people would be given access to the same power that raised the Christ from the dead they wouldn't've killed Jesus! Through his death death itself was conquered!

This is the completeness of Christ's victory. Complete victory over the physical realm that even death was overcome. What Jesus accomplished in the physical realm was completely legal in the spiritual realm for the requirements of fulling the Law. And ushered in this "Age of Grace", "The Mystery Revealed" in which we now live.

I Peter 2:7 - 10
7 Unto you therefore which believe *he (* = Jesus) is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,

8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.

9 But *ye (* = ya'll) are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;

10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

The world "peculiar" in v.9 really lost its full meaning in translation. We are a peculiar people as we understand the word today sure but without going into all the Greek what this word used in the Greek means is we are purchased. Purchased with the intent to reach out in a straight line and touch the purchased.

God purchased us from the god of this world. He paid a ransom that He may posses a people. That ransom was the life of His only physical son. Innocent blood. Another of the wonderful works of God in his own right. Why would God pay such a high price? For us?! Because of His great love He has for us! To have access to us

For The Opportunity
To Reach Out And To Touch US!
Get it?!
I John 3:1 - 3 (CEB)
1 See what kind of love the Father has given to us in that we should be called God's children, and that is what we are! Because the world didn't recognize him, it doesn't recognize us.

2 Dear friends, *now (* = now, now, now. The eternal now!) we are God's children, and it hasn't yet appeared what we will be. We know that when *he (* = Jesus Christ) appears we will be like him because we'll see him as he is.

3 And everyone who has this hope in him purifies himself even as he is pure.

II Corinthians 7:6 - 7 (AMP)
6 For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," is the One who has shone in our hearts to give us the Light of the knowledge of the glory and majesty of God [clearly revealed] in the face of Christ. 

7 But we have this precious treasure [the good news about salvation] in [unworthy] earthen vessels [of human frailty], so that the grandeur and surpassing greatness of the power will be [shown to be] from God [His sufficiency] and not from ourselves.

We (God's genuine people, disciples of Jesus Christ) are aware of the good news about salvation. Through an accurate knowledge of God's Word. Which is His will. Having separated us (by our free will via believing) from the world by His paid ransom for us, it's His will to reach out in a straight line and touch us. Through the gift of holy spirit. Which is seed. Hence, the new birth. Making us His kids! All in these "earthen vessels." Us. An incredibly, awesomely wonderful work of God! So much so He considers us His masterpiece!

Ephesians 2:10 (AMP)
10 For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above - spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us].

Check it out. It's the stars, the brightest things in the universe that produce the atoms that build the universe, right? We shine as lights in a dark and perverse kingdom. (Philippians 2:15) We produce spiritual light when we live and speak the truth of God's Word. As the stars are spread out across the heavens producing light and that which builds the universe so are God's children. Spread out across a dark world producing the light that builds the body of Christ.

Do You Know What That Means?!
We Are God's Stars In The World!
YOU are (or could be) God's masterpiece!
So let your light shine!

Hey! Wanna go for a ride with me?! From the face of this young woman to the edge of the visible universe, then back to the nucleus of an atom and back to this smiling face. And be awed with me at just some of the other wonderful works of God!


Remember, God magnified His Word above all this! That should initiate some interest in some serious Bible study, wouldn't ya think?! Get your light shining and maintain it. Keep in mind I'm here for you and will get'cha going on an amazing journey of discovery if you are interested in diving deeper into such...

You just can't go any faster and/or further in your personal understanding of God's Word and produce spiritual growth than what is available hanging out with the folks I do. We'll show you how God's Word interprets itself. Which will liberate you from religion. Don't worry about location. After watching the video above you should realize that distance just isn't an issue with God!
