Good morning to all! Grace and peace from God our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I am going to tell you some things you may not know, and some you may know about God our Heavenly Father today.
1) He made the world, and everything in it, and he is Lord over it all. That means He is in Charge.
2)He does not live in temples built by hands
3)He is not served by human hands as if we give things he needs to survive
4)He gives us what we need for life spiritually, physically, and emotionally, and breath and everything else.
5)From one human he made every nation of humans so that they could inhabit the whole earth
6)He determined the times set for them and the exact places they should live
This does not mean he controls their mind, he just knew what their minds would do for his purpose, and he placed each one in the time and place he had set for them.
7)He did all of this so man would seek him, and perhaps reach out for him. Though he is not far from all of us.
8)Through Christ we are In God and we live in Him, move and have our true being in Him.
9) We become His offspring through Christ, and we should not think we mold him into our image but He molds us into His image.
10) Before Christ God overlooked a lot of humans and their ignorance of making their own image of God, but now He commands all people everywhere to repent, and turn to Christ.
Acts 17:24-31 God said through Paul.....
"The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands. And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything, because he himself gives all men life and breath and everything else. From one man he made every nation of men that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. For in him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own poets have said, “We are His offspring.” Therefore since we are God's offspring, we should not think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone- an image made by man's design and skill.In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people (not just the Israelites) everywhere to repent. For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed. He has given proof of this to all men by raising him from the dead.
God has brought us here at this place and time so we could reach out to Him from the cross and find Him. What are we doing to prove Christ is living, and His resurrected power is in us? Are we proving our faith is in him by letting Him do everything in, and through us as he did through His disciples when he was on earth? If His life and work is not being proven in us, and working through us for others, then we are not his offspring.
If He is not living in and through you then turn to Him now and repent so he can begin His true work in you that molds you into His image that does the work through you as He did through all His first disciples that lived through His Holy Spirit. Where have all the Christians gone? It has been a long time since their passing, will we ever learn?
His peace and love always
