The anthem of praise is to ring out from heaven above, and to be answered from the earth below.
Through all this the message of scripture still resounds over all creation, Christ has been given dominion, and glory, and a kingdom.
Through belief Jesus becomes Savior and Lord. Rescuer and Ruler. Deliverer and Director, he must be both for those who receive salvation. Those who will not have all of Christ will have none of Christ in the end.
Enjoy this message based on the book of Amos by my good friend Jason Love.
God is concerned with truth and honesty among His people.
By God the Christian theist generally means a spaceless, timeless, immaterial, logically necessary being who is creator and designer of the universe and who is the moral standard for good and evil.
God designed the human machine to run on Himself. He Himself is the fuel our spirits were designed to burn, or the food our spirits were designed to feed on. There is no other. That is why it is just no good asking God to make us happy in our own way without bothering about religion. God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.
Although none of these disciples are totally aware of all that Jesus was or would do, we can see that they are significantly changed by their initial meeting with Christ.
…no person, no combination of people, no document however hollowed by time, no process, no premise, nothing is equivalent to an actual God in this central function as the unexaminable examiner of good and evil.
