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
I long, yes, I faint with longing to enter the courts of the LORD. With my whole being, body and soul, I will shout joyfully to the living God.

Job 27:2 New International Version
“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.

Psalm 116:5 New International Version

Psalm 145:8 NET Bible

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.”

The 18th of February 2017

We adjusted our Prayer Watch time from 12:00nn to 6:00pm to 6:00am to 12:00nn. All for the purpose of a mission: to go to Pampanga and have my Parent-in-Law accept the Lord.

We are just hoping for the best. We do not know how it will be.

So we traveled on the same day to Pampanga. Late afternoon, we arrived. Dinner. After dinner, we’re ready for bed – but we do intend to praise and worship the Lord and pray. My wife invited her parents if they wish to join – at least listen. They did!

By God’s grace, after a few song – I started to pray. God’s wisdom is indeed way too awesome compared to ours. No mind can conceive what He has prepared.

I was lead by the Holy Spirit into prayer – a prayer preaching. Asking the Lord to remind us of all the good things He has done for us. Since, we are singing that He is good, that every good and perfect gift comes from the Father. We just started thanking Him for all the good things He has done for us, and every great gift we received. Even our life! our breath! Then I mentioned about His love for us – in prayer. How He loved us and where is it written in the Bible. How we need a Savior – since we cannot save ourselves and that Jesus is the Savior, the only Name given to whom salvation may be found and that all authority in heaven and in earth was given to Him, that He is the only way to the Father, the truth and the Life. That in His presence, there is freedom – from sickness, from worries, from weakness. That in Him, if we believe, we will have eternal life.

Then, I invited them to accept the Lord. They just obliged. I asked twice if they are willing. They followed the prayer and all glory and honor to God! They received and accepted the Lord!

It was an open heaven!

Right after they received, I prayed for Healing! For Peace, and Joy in their hearts!

I then followed the instructions of the Holy Spirit. I anointed them to receive the following:

  1. Eternal Life
  2. Renewed Strength
  3. Healing

img_20170218_215559

Then, I started talking about how to pray and taught them. We also prayed for the desires of their heart. Among which are as follows:

  • For love to bind the entire family, from their Children down to the Grandchildren
  • For the students in the whole family to finish study and graduate
  • For a prosperous life of their Children down to the grandchildren
  • For their long life

My wife Cora showed them too, what to read in the Psalms. But we trust the Lord for their teachings. I already mentioned to them the Life in Christ teaching. It will happen soon…

img_20170218_215826

God worked and moved mightily! We prayed for this! We do not know exactly how it will happen but it did! The power of an earnest prayer of the righteous! James 5:16

Worth mentioning too, before this day, is the acceptance too of Lola Siony! She’s already 92, and she believed and accepted the Lord – by witnessing a praise and worship done by the CLSF Paco, House of Prayer, in our Friday Night Shabbat!

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.

betransformed

Ephesians 4:21-23 New Living Translation

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.

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!

Prayer of Acceptance

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.

PRAYER

2 Thessalonians 3:5
May the Lord lead your hearts into a full understanding and expression of the love of God and the patient endurance that comes from Christ.

All praise, glory and thanksgiving to God, our loving Father!

Now all glory to God, who is able to make you strong, just as my Good News says. This message about Jesus Christ has revealed his plan for you Gentiles, a plan kept secret from the beginning of time.

Our God is Able. No doubt about that. If we doubt, then we are not worthy of Him at all. Doubt is not from God. All things are possible to Him. Nothing is even impossible to Him. It would benefit you most if you would allow Him to rule and reign in your life.

ONLY JESUS

Only The Lord Can.

everythingpossible

z-nothing-impossible-with-god

New Living Translation
Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.” – for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God.

New Living Translation
For nothing is impossible with God.” – A barren woman conceived a son…

With me, or even with you, there’s so much impossibilities. The limited knowledge we know of what’s possible is far outweighed by the impossibility. But if we take it to God – it’s a totally different matter.

Luke 4:18-19 New Living Translation
“The Spirit of the LORD is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free, and that the time of the LORD’s favor has come.”

Jesus did exactly what was written in the Scripture when He Himself read the scroll in the synagogue.

But not everything in this context is physical.

EPHESIANS 6:12 New Living Translation
For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

2 CORINTHIANS 4:4 New Living Translation
Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.

There are things unseen by the naked eyes. Chains. Prison Cells. Walls. The Oppressor. With these things, ONLY Jesus, our Sovereign Lord can help us. 

ACTS 26:17-18 New Living Translation
And I will rescue you from both your own people and the Gentiles. Yes, I am sending you to the Gentiles to open their eyes, so they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God. Then they will receive forgiveness for their sins and be given a place among God’s people, who are set apart by faith in me.’

Prayer is not enough. You will need to be empowered by the Holy Spirit’s wisdom, knowledge and understanding – something beyond your regular vision can see. You need to find a way to hear the healing, liberating news that you really are loved and forgiven by God, our loving Father. 

2 CORINTHIANS 2:11 New International Version
in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.

We are not unaware. We know. But we need help. We need power beyond what we have in the physical. We need to fight the battle in Christ – for the Battle is the Lord’s!

Only Jesus. Only Jesus can help. Only Jesus can rescue. Only Jesus can free you!
