PLANTED BY HAND

PLANTED BY HAND.jpg

PLANTED BY GOD’S HAND

Matthew 15:13 “He replied, ‘Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be pulled up by the roots.”

The Scene: Representation of God’s children–a potted plant hanging down. The Holy Spirit quickened, saying, “It is by the hand of the Lord that each of His own people are planted in good soil.”

First started in His living water (the Word) the root system grows. It becomes larger and stronger the longer it stays in Father God’s living Word; then the flora is transplanted  in more good soil and the plant becomes more productive as it matures.

God’s children who desire to mature in His likeness are pleasing to God as they honor and glorify Him. They continue to need His care as He prunes, waters, feeds them. This is an ongoing process that will never end.

Isaiah 60:21 “Then will all your people be righteous and they will possess the land forever. They are the shoot I have planted, the work of my hands, for the display of my splendor.”

FOR THIS I WAS BORN

FOR THIS I WAS BORNFOR THIS I WAS BORN

Numbers 24:17-19 “I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near . A star will come out of Jacob; a scepter will rise out of Israel.  He will crush the foreheads of Moab, the skulls of all the sons of Sheth. Edom will be conquered; Seir, his enemy, will be conquered, but Israel will grow strong.  A ruler will come out of Jacob and destroy the survivors of the city.”*

The Scene: The Star of the East, representing the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

*Balaam was a heathen diviner that the Lord used for His own purposes against Balak, the head of the Moabites. “Then he uttered his oracle:  ‘The oracle of Balaam son of Beor, the oracle of one whose eye sees clearly.'” Numbers 24:15

The Star of the East in the oracle of Balaam occurred about 1452 B.C.–spoken as a promise of the coming of the Jewish Messiah. The Star of the East–God’s promise of His coming.  See Matthew 2:1-2.

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they might have life and have it to the full.”  John 10:10

THE ONLY WAY

THE ONLY WAY.jpg

THE ONLY WAY

2 Chronicles 15:1-2 “The Spirit of God came upon Azariah son of Oded.  He went out to meet Asa and said to him, ‘Listen to me, Asa and all Judah and Benjamin. The Lord is with you when you are with him. If you seek him, he will be found by you, but if you forsake him, he will forsake you.'”

II Timothy 2:11-12 “Here is a trustworthy saying: ‘If we died with him, we will also live with him; If we endure, we will also reign with him, he will also disown us; If we are faithless, he will remain faithful, for he cannot disown himself.’

The Scene: Street signs: “One Way Jesus” and “Stop Sinning” intended as instructions for following the narrow way, Jesus Christ.

The Lord is with anyone when that individual is born again. If anyone seeks Him,  God will be found by them.  The Holy Spirit reveals to His people that every person decides for him/herself.  Revelation 3:5-6 “He who overcomes will, like them, be dressed in white.”

John 3:3 “In reply Jesus declared, ‘I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.'”

Exodus 33:14 “The Lord replied, ‘My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.'”

CROWN OF LOVE

 

CROWN OF LOVECROWN OF LOVE

Mark 15:17 “They put a purple robe on him, then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on him.”

The Scene: The crown of thorns* came from a scrubby bush called burnet, which grew in the region Jesus taught (Matthew Henry Commentary). ” He wore the crown of thorns, which we deserved, that we might wear  the crown of glory which He merited.” (Zondervan Edition 1960)

  • Three strands make up the crown of thorns–three being the number for the Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. When Jesus suffered and was crucified, not only Jesus suffered, but Father God suffered as well.”The Son of God loves us so much that He was willing to wear the crown of thorns, that we might wear the crown of life,” said the Holy Spirit.

James 12:2 “Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God had promised to those who love him.”

GOD IS OUR ROCK

GOD IS OUR ROCK.jpg

GOD IS OUR ROCK

Deuteronomy 32:4 * “He is our rock, his works are perfect, and his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he.”

  • A verse from The Song of Moses that was recited before the whole assembly of Israel.

2 Chronicles 6:14 ” O Lord, God of Israel, there is no God like you in heaven or on the earth–you keep your covenant of love with your servants who continue wholeheartedly in your way.”

The scene: a very large rock formation with three peaks; representing the Trinity.

God is our Rock and our salvation. Our God is absolutely faithful. His Word is sure.

Psalm 18:2 ” The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock,  in whom I take refuge.”

1 Corinthians 10:3-4  “They all ate the same spiritual food and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ.”

CHOOSE (Whom you will serve)

CHOOSE

CHOOSE (WHOM YOU WILL SERVE)

Hosea 4:12 ” They consult a wooden idol and are answered by a stick of wood. A spirit of prostitution leads them astray; they are unfaithful to their God.”

The Scene: a modern wood carving–representing an idol of today, consulted by unbelievers in the one true God. NOTE: The black haze surrounding the idol represents the evil spirits, sin, and spiritual darkness–blocking the light of Jesus, waiting to indwell someone.

Numbers 33:52 “When you cross the Jordan into Canaan drive out all the inhabitants of the land before you. Destroy all their carved images and their cast idols, and demolish all their high places.”

On the plains of Moab, by the Jordan River, God spoke to Moses:

Numbers 33:53 “Take possession of the land and settle in it, for I have given you the land to possess.”

As professing Christians, when saved, we cross over from death unto eternal life.Likewise, the Christian must discard any idols they possess and turn their lives over to Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.

1 Corinthians 10:14 ” Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry.”

Anything that takes us away from God is some form of idolatry…..for our God is a jealous God. Our allegiance is to King Jesus, the giver of eternal life to come.

 

MY SHIELD

MY SHIELD

Psalm 33:20 ” We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield.”

The Scene: a shield called a buckler–an Israelite shield used for protection.

In 1 Chronicles 17:7-8,11-12 God’s protection was assured to King David and his son Solomon. The buckler was a multi-purpose instrument.  When not in use for war, as a defensive armor, it was put to use in other ways:  1)collector of God’s provision, such as,  catching  rainwater, from which they could obtain a drink, 2) a wash basin, 3) a carry-all, by placing their spear through the handle straps, food or other items could be transported.

Psalm 18:30 ” As for our God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is flawless, He is a shield for all who take refuge in him.”
