God in ABC

God is more than what the alphabet can describe. What we know of Him is from our experience and His own revelation. Read on…A collection of literal verses from the Bible.

Alive / Able / Almighty

Ephesians 3:20 New Living Translation
Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.

Psalm 84:2 New Living Translation

“As surely as God lives, who has denied me justice, the Almighty, who has made my life bitter,

Beautiful

Psalm 104:1-2 New American Standard Bible
Bless the LORD, O my soul! O LORD my God, You are very great; You are clothed with splendor and majesty, Covering Yourself with light as with a cloak, Stretching out heaven like a tent curtain.

Caring / Compassionate / Creator / Consuming

1 Peter 5:7 New Living Translation
Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.

Isaiah 40:28 New Living Translation
Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding.

Deliverer

Psalm 144:2 A Psalm of David. New International Version
He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me.

Matthew Henry Commentary
144:1-8 When men become eminent for things as to which they have had few advantages, they should be more deeply sensible that God has been their Teacher. Happy those to whom the Lord gives that noblest victory, conquest and dominion over their own spirits. A prayer for further mercy is fitly begun with a thanksgiving for former mercy. There was a special power of God, inclining the people of Israel to be subject to David; it was typical of the bringing souls into subjection to the Lord Jesus. Man’s days have little substance, considering how many thoughts and cares of a never-dying soul are employed about a poor dying body. Man’s life is as a shadow that passes away. In their highest earthly exaltation, believers will recollect how mean, sinful, and vile they are in themselves; thus they will be preserved from self-importance and presumption. God’s time to help his people is, when they are sinking, and all other helps fail.

Enables / Everlasting

The LORD said to him, “Who gave human beings their mouths? Who makes them deaf or mute? Who gives them sight or makes them blind? Is it not I, the LORD?

Matthew Henry Commentary
6:1-6 A man often has all he needs for outward enjoyment; yet the Lord leaves him so to covetousness or evil dispositions, that he makes no good or comfortable use of what he has. By one means or other his possessions come to strangers; this is vanity, and an evil disease. A numerous family was a matter of fond desire and of high honour among the Hebrews; and long life is the desire of mankind in general. Even with these additions a man may not be able to enjoy his riches, family, and life. Such a man, in his passage through life, seems to have been born for no end or use. And he who has entered on life only for one moment, to quit it the next, has a preferable lot to him who has lived long, but only to suffer.

Matthew Henry Commentary
2:18-26 Our hearts are very loth to quit their expectations of great things from the creature; but Solomon came to this at length. The world is a vale of tears, even to those that have much of it. See what fools they are, who make themselves drudges to the world, which affords a man nothing better than subsistence for the body. And the utmost he can attain in this respect is to allow himself a sober, cheerful use thereof, according to his rank and condition. But we must enjoy good in our labour; we must use those things to make us diligent and cheerful in worldly business. And this is the gift of God. Riches are a blessing or a curse to a man, according as he has, or has not, a heart to make a good use of them. To those that are accepted of the Lord, he gives joy and satisfaction in the knowledge and love of him. But to the sinner he allots labour, sorrow, vanity, and vexation, in seeking a worldly portion, which yet afterwards comes into better hands. Let the sinner seriously consider his latter end. To seek a lasting portion in the love of Christ and the blessings it bestows, is the only way to true and satisfying enjoyment even of this present world.

 Tasty / True / Trust

Psalm 34:8 New Living Translation
Taste and see that the LORD is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!

Psalm 71:5 American King James Version
For you are my hope, O Lord GOD: you are my trust from my youth.

Upright

Deuteronomy 32:4 New Living Translation
He is the Rock; his deeds are perfect. Everything he does is just and fair. He is a faithful God who does no wrong; how just and upright he is!

Victory

Exodus 15:2 New Living Translation
The LORD is my strength and my song; he has given me victory. This is my God, and I will praise him–my father’s God, and I will exalt him!

Wonderful / Worthy

Psalm 105:2 New Living Translation
Sing to him; yes, sing his praises. Tell everyone about his wonderful deeds.
Revelation 4:11 New Living Translation
“You are worthy, O Lord our God, to receive glory and honor and power. For you created all things, and they exist because you created what you pleased.”
X – no word for this one
Y – no word for this one except for the Hebrew name.

Daniel 3:25

New Living Translation
“Look!” Nebuchadnezzar shouted. “I see four men, unbound, walking around in the fire unharmed! And the fourth looks like a god!”

New American Standard Bible
He said, “Look! I see four men loosed and walking about in the midst of the fire without harm, and the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods!”

God doesn’t need our help. We are the one who is in need. We are the ones who get harmed, attacked, hurt, bound, tied, and thrown. Who can do any of such things to God?

V.20 of the same Chapter of Daniel is as follows:

20Then he ordered some of the strongest men of his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and throw them into the blazing furnace.

Picture this. You are tied. You are carried and thrown down to a blazing furnace – unusually hotter than ever!

What will happen to you now? 

  • broken bones from falling
  • burned hair and skin to the extreme
  • body turned to ashes

BUT, that is not the case with the three (3). They are unharmed! No burns! No nothing! The only thing that’s burned and turned to ashes are the ropes that’s tied to them. Nothing else. Not even their garments or what they are wearing from head to foot was burned. Who can do this kind of saving or rescue to anybody? Who can make the fire not burn anything? Who can make the bones not break from falling? God alone! Our Almighty God and Father!

More than what the Lord can do, you should have asked why the Lord spared the 3. Right?

Daniel 3 New Living Translation

15I will give you one more chance to bow down and worship the statue I have made when you hear the sound of the musical instruments. But if you refuse, you will be thrown immediately into the blazing furnace. And then what god will be able to rescue you from my power?”

16Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you.17If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty. 18But even if he doesn’t, we want to make it clear to you, Your Majesty, that we will never serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up.”

  • They have complete trust in God
  • They refuse to bow down to any idol other than God
  • They made a declaration
  • They are undefiled (Chapter 1)

How awesome is that? That’s more than just bravery or any courage known to men. That’s also more than just loyalty to God!

Daniel 3:28 New Living Translation
Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise to the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego! He sent his angel to rescue his servants who trusted in him. They defied the king’s command and were willing to die rather than serve or worship any god except their own God.

Daniel 3:17 God gave these four young men an unusual aptitude for understanding every aspect of literature and wisdom. And God gave Daniel the special ability to interpret the meanings of visions and dreams.

Trust in God. Trust also in Jesus.

None Like our God

Who can compare to the Lord God Almighty?

there-is-none-like-you

While we are told to be imitators of God, we are still not God. While the Lord Jesus empowered us to do greater things than the likes of what He did, again, we are still not God.

  • God is great!
  • His name is full of power (might).
  • God is Holy!
  • He alone is God.
  • He alone can do what He can.
  • God is awesome!
  • God rescues the helpless
  • God protects the helpless and poor
  • God is love.
  • God is merciful and compassionate.
  • God is able.
  • God is just.
  • God is faithful.

Jeremiah 10:6 New Living Translation
LORD, there is no one like you! For you are great, and your name is full of power.

1 Samuel 2:2 New Living Translation
No one is holy like the LORD! There is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God.

1 Chronicles 17:20  English Standard Version
There is none like you, O LORD, and there is no God besides you, according to all that we have heard with our ears.

Psalm 86:8 New Living Translation
No pagan god is like you, O Lord. None can do what you do!

Psalm 35:10 New Living Translation
With every bone in my body I will praise him: “LORD, who can compare with you? Who else rescues the helpless from the strong? Who else protects the helpless and poor from those who rob them?”

Exodus 15:11 New Living Translation
“Who is like you among the gods, O LORD–glorious in holiness, awesome in splendor, performing great wonders?

Psalm 89:8 New Living Translation
O LORD God of Heaven’s Armies! Where is there anyone as mighty as you, O LORD? You are entirely faithful.

Psalm 113:5 New Living Translation
Who can be compared with the LORD our God, who is enthroned on high?

So who is like our God in all the earth? None. Period.

Read between the lines. We are nothing compared to the Lord’s majesty. We should not even compare. We cannot even outdo nor outgive God. Even our life and breath is from Him! There’s just none like the Lord our God. Yes, we are His sons and daughters. But we are still NOT God! Put your trust in Him. Put your faith in Him. Give your Hope in Him. Totally rely on His great mercy and love. Let Him be your protection and defense! Let Him be the Father that He is to His son!

All praise and glory and honor and thanksgiving and praise be to our God!

What’s Next After Acceptance?

Congratulations!

You are saved now! You are a Son of God! You are now redeemed!

What’s next?

Time now to learn. To be equipped. To know the things about the God you accepted. Otherwise, if you will not change and press-on, you just might not grow spiritually in the Lord.

God loves you and you cannot change that. You cannot be separated from His love. He made a way for you to know His Son. He even gave you the freedom of choice to choose if you will accept Him or not – we know the consequences. The Lord Jesus is the ONLY way to the Father…

  1. You need to be baptized.
  2. You will have to spend time reading His Word – the Bible.
  3. You will have to listen, read on the teaching New Life in Christ.
    1. To learn how to pray
    2. To learn how it is to be a Christian
    3. To learn how to worship2_corinthians_5_17-dupe-close-800x800

You will be changed by starting to change how you think. We will pick it up from here…

betransformed

Ephesians 4:21-23 New Living Translation
Since you have heard about Jesus and have learned the truth that comes from him, throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes.

Colossians 3:8-10 New Living Translation
But now is the time to get rid of anger, rage, malicious behavior, slander, and dirty language. Don’t lie to each other, for you have stripped off your old sinful nature and all its wicked deeds. Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him.

How is this possible? You will learn this in the Teaching – New Life in Christ.

God loves you.

john316

You need to know this. Regardless of what you are now. Regardless of what you have done in the past, even the things you did before reading this. God loves you. To bring you back to Him, and take away your sin, He sent His only Son as ransom – a payment for our sins. The redeemer is Jesus.

The only begotten Son is Jesus, our Lord. He is our Savior. The only one who can erase or remove our sins, and the only way to God, our Father. Call on His name, you will be saved!

In Jesus’Name

What’s in a name?

9f238-thenamesofjesus

IN HIS NAME, YOU WILL BE SAVED

Romans 10:9 Berean Study Bible
that if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

1670_1600x1200

Mark 16:16-17
Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In My name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not harm them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will be made well.”

Romans 10:13
for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

HE IS LORD OF ALL

Casting out in Jesus’name requires the caster-believer to have an intimate relationship with the Lord. See Acts 19:13-15. With intimate, I mean you accepted and believe in Jesus Christ, you were baptized in the Holy Spirit, you follow His commands, and live your life with Him as your Lord and King. 

Philippians 2:9-11 Berean Study Bible
Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place, and gave Him the name above all names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

allabout

Colossians 3:17
And whatever you do, in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

Ephesians 5:18-20
Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to reckless indiscretion. Instead, be filled with the Spirit. Speak to one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your hearts to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

HE IS THE ONLY WAY

He is the ONLY way to the Father, our merciful God! It is to the Father that we all pray. What we ask is given to us if it is according to His holy will and is asked for in the name of Jesus. God loves us even before Jesus saved us. Love is actually the reason why we were saved. But, only through Jesus – our Savior, our Redeemer, our ransom and payment for sins we should have paid for.

John 14:6
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

PRAY, AND ASK – IN JESUS’ NAME

John 14:12-14
Truly, truly, I tell you, whoever believes in Me will also do the works that I am doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in My name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.

John 16:23-24
In that day you will no longer ask Me anything. Truly, truly, I tell you, whatever you ask the Father in My name, He will give you. Until now you have not asked for anything in My name. Ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete.

1 John 3:21-24
Beloved, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God, and we will receive from Him whatever we ask, because we keep His commandments and do what is pleasing in His sight. And this is His commandment: that we should believe in the name of His Son, Jesus Christ, and we should love one another just as He commanded us. Whoever keeps His commandments remains in God, and God in him. And by this we know that He remains in us: by the Spirit He has given us.

Nothing should keep you now from accepting Jesus Christ. He is the only way. he is your Savior. He is Lord of all!

CHOOSE TO LOVE

1 JOHN 3:18 New Living Translation
Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions.

190587-above-all-love-each-other-deeply

Yes. Love ought to be active. Not just in words but in truth and in action. It has to be shown. It must be expressed in a way that it is felt. It can be ignored, yes, but not always. This is the case only when the recipient is estranged or detached or totally alien to the feeling.

Love is something I would not normally define but something I’d do or show. Sinner that I am, I love those who love me…and receive love to those I love. Nothing, however, can compare to God’s love, to His command to love our enemy, To even pray for those who persecute us. Such love requires deeper intimacy to the Father’s love. Such is something you have to desire to feel. While it is already given, it can only be found thru the Son – our Lord Jesus – the Father’s greatest expression of love. God is love and to love is the greatest commandment from God.

John 13:34
So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other.

thegreatestcom

1 John 4:12
No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us.

1 John 4:20
If someone says, “I love God,” but hates a Christian brother or sister, that person is a liar; for if we don’t love people we can see, how can we love God, whom we cannot see?

1 Peter 1:22
You were cleansed from your sins when you obeyed the truth, so now you must show sincere love to each other as brothers and sisters. Love each other deeply with all your heart.

ROMANS 5:3-5
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.

BLESSED GENEROSITY

Proverbs 11:25 TEV. Be generous, and you will be prosperous. Help others, and you will be helped.

32-blog-proverbs-11-25-scene-words-300x300

The message is clear to those who are rich and able to give more. While nothing prohibits even the poor to share the little they have. Choose to do what is right. Follow the Lord’s way. Be a blessing and you will be blessed. God loves a cheerful giver! Love is almost always expressed thru giving and sharing what we have to others – not necessarily our family only. 

1 TIMOTHY 6:17-18 New Living Translation
Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which is so unreliable. Their trust should be in God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment. Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others. By doing this they will be storing up their treasure as a good foundation for the future so that they may experience true life.

MATTHEW 6:20 New Living Translation
Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal.

MATTHEW 5:42 New Living Translation
Give to those who ask, and don’t turn away from those who want to borrow.

proverbs-11-generosity

LUKE 3:11 New Living Translation
John replied, “If you have two shirts, give one to the poor. If you have food, share it with those who are hungry

LUKE 12:33 New Living Translation
“Sell your possessions and give to those in need. This will store up treasure for you in heaven! And the purses of heaven never get old or develop holes. Your treasure will be safe; no thief can steal it and no moth can destroy it..”

PROVERBS 11:28 English Standard Version
Whoever trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous will flourish like a green leaf.

PROVERBS 21:25-26 New Living Translation
Despite their desires, the lazy will come to ruin, for their hands refuse to work. Some people are always greedy for more, but the godly love to give!

PSALM 112:5 New Living Translation
Good comes to those who lend money generously and conduct their business fairly.

PSALM 37:21 New Living Translation
The wicked borrow and never repay, but the godly are generous givers.

All glory to God!

Hated and Loved

Proverbs 11:20 The Lord hates evil-minded people, but loves those who do right. TEV

2 Things. What the Lord hates. What the Lord loves.

7-things-god-hates-1

Proverbs 6:16-17 English Standard Version
There are six things that the LORD hates, seven that are an abomination to him:

  • haughty eyes – the arrogant, proud and conceited
  • a lying tongue
  • hands that shed innocent blood
  • a heart that devises wicked plans – schemers of evil
  • feet that make haste to run to evil – evildoers. Hostility
  • a false witness who breathes out lies
  • one who sows discord among brothers – one who makes disagreement rather than harmony. This is the root of quarrelling, jealousy, division and envy

These are detestable, abominable, hatable things to God. Anyone who does any of these things will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

  • Galatians 5:19-21 New Living Translation
    When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

What’s worst is that doer’s of these evil will be thrown to the burning sulphur and fire.

  • Revelation 21:8 New Living Translation
    “But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars–their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

Do the right thing. Repent and turn-away from sin. Seek the Lord’s forgiveness and live your life in Christ. Then, you will know how it is to be in the Father’s love…a love given to all from the beginning of time – but completely ignored by many. However, you cannot ask forgiveness nor repent of your sin to a God you do not know, nor believed at. It’s important to know God first – thru our Lord Jesus Christ. The way to the Father. Our Savior. Our Lord Jesus introduced the Father to us by His works and by the very character He has.

Believe in Jesus then. Accept Him as the only Savior of your life – the one who can take away your sins. Repent, then live for Him. Make Him the King that He is in your life – to rule and reign your heart, mind and whole being.

A Night of Revelations

3 Things Remain.

s-l1000-1

These 3 are God’s qualities and gifts. Our loving God is merciful and eternal. And these 3 remain eternally with Him.

galatians-5-6-emanuel-tanjala

Now let’s explore a bit these gifts:

FAITH

Matthew 21:21 New Living Translation
Then Jesus told them, “I tell you the truth, if you have faith and don’t doubt, you can do things like this and much more. You can even say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen.

HOPE

1 Peter 1:13 New Living Translation
So think clearly and exercise self-control. Look forward to the gracious salvation that will come to you when Jesus Christ is revealed to the world.

John 14:1 New Living Translation
“Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me.

1 Timothy 1:1 New Living Translation
This letter is from Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus, appointed by the command of God our Savior and Christ Jesus, who gives us hope.

LOVE

1 John 4:16 New Living Translation
We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.

1 John 4:8 New Living Translation
But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

why-do-we-pray-in-the-name-of-jesus

Late afternoon, I started my intercession. Opening with Psalms 148 and 150. God revealed some things. After dinner, we prayed as a family. We prayed for Czarina Joy’s school concerns, and Cyril Justin.

Enemy tactics revealed and identified.

  • lava man who watches
  • controlling and manipulating spirit of a girl
  • gorilla spirit

After praying, we gave the Lord our Royal Salute. BUT…

Enter the gray Lion…The gray Lion, the Lion of Judah who anointed us last Sunday at Church visited the Center this same night. We gave Him a royal salute. 🙂

Cyril, our only warrior among the intercessors, received two (2) more swords. One (1) even is from Angel Michael. The last one is when the Lion of Judah appeared. He is now a warrior with three (3) swords! Truly, Psalm 144:1 coming alive before our eyes.

  • New Living Translation
    A psalm of David. Praise the LORD, who is my rock. He trains my hands for war and gives my fingers skill for battle.

Glorious night indeed! We are looking forward for more! More of God! More of Jesus! More of the mighty Spirit of the living God!

All glory to God our loving Father, ever merciful and true! And to Christ Jesus, our King of Glory!
