OUR GOD OF PEACE

OUR GOD OF PEACE

Proverbs 14:30 “A cheerful look brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones.”

The Scene: A representation of a tranquil scene of the Sea of Galilee, brought on by  a prayerful request to God to bring peace during a  troubled time.

Colossians 3:15 “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.”

The only true peace that lasts comes from our God of peace.

John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

Philippians 4:6-7 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”

2 Thessalonians 3:16 “Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.”

HONOR HIM

HONOR HIM.jpg

HONOR HIM

1 Chronicles 29:10- 11 ” David praised the Lord in the presence of the whole assembly, saying, ‘Praise be to you, O Lord, God of our father Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, O Lord, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all.’ ”

The Scene: Accolades shown honoring Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

NAMES & TITLES OF JESUS

  • JESUS: His name; The Lord saves, Savior, Yeshua
  • LORD: His position; Ruler of all, Adonai
  • CHRIST: His anointing; the Anointed One, Messiah
  • EMMANUEL: God with us; God Almighty, El Shaddai

Following the example of King David and the Apostle Paul, we begin our prayers with accolades of honor for our Lord and Savior and end our prayers following the example in the Lord’s Prayer (Ref. Matthew, Chapter 6); “for yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory forever, Amen.”

Revelation 4:10 “The twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne, and worship him who lives for ever and ever.  They lay their crowns before the throne and say:  ‘You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.’ ”

5-70 HONORING THE LORD

 

HE LOOKS INTO THE HEART

 

HE LOOKS INTO THE HEART.jpg

HE LOOKS INTO THE HEART

2 Corinthians 4:6 “For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.’ ”

The Scene: A laser-like light shining from the symbolic eye of the Lord Jesus, as if shining from His eye into the eyes of mankind–thus showing us God looks through a man’s soul and into the heart.

Hebrews 4:12-13 ” For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.”

2 Chronicles 16:9a “For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.”

Psalm 51:10  “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.”

THIS STONE

THIS STONE

THIS STONE

1 Peter 2:7-8 ” Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe, ‘The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone,’ and, ‘A stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall.’ ”

The Scene: A stone block representing Jesus Christ as a contrast….a cornerstone, a capstone and a stepping stone to salvation to some people and to others a stumbling block.

1 Peter 2:4-6″As you come to him, the living Stone–rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him–you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says: ‘See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.’ ”

SIGNS OF LIFE & VICTORY

SIGNS OF LIFE & VICTORY

SIGNS OF LIFE & VICTORY

John 12:13 “They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, ‘Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the King of Israel!’ ”

The Scene: Crossed date palm branches–looking like crossed swords; signs of life and victory and symbolic of righteousness.*

*Referenced from The Bible Almanac, Thomas Nelson Publisher 1980.

Revelation 7: 9-10 “After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice: ‘Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.’ ”

NOTE: The date palm tree is very tall, upright.  It bears fruit which can be used in cooking, baking, or eating plain.

5-67 HONOR TO THE LAMB

 

SHELTERS

SHELTERS.jpg

SHELTERS*

Mark 9:5-6 ” Peter said to Jesus, ‘Rabbi, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters–one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.’ He did not know what to say, they were so frightened.”

The Scene: trees leaning toward each other to provide shade, shelter from the elements of the weather.

Peter was thinking, maybe, about creature comforts or about enjoying an eternal stay/visit with Jesus, Moses, and Elijah. However, that was not to be. For Jesus and Father God had a different plan.  Jesus took His disciples back down the Mount of Transfiguration to live according to His will a little longer.

Isaiah 55:8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.”

At the time Peter spoke, Jesus was thinking of holiness of the moment—God, the Almighty, Father God, would be there, in a cloud, to speak to the group. We are called to use Godly wisdom in all we do and to pray for God’s blessings on our activities–to get God’s help in all our doings.

*SHELTERS: Different translations of this Scripture say:  tabernacles, booths, shelters or tents

THE WAY OF THE LORD

THE WAY OF THE LORD.jpg

Micah 6:8 “He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. ”

The Scene: The signs: 1) Act justly 2)Love mercy 3) Walk humbly answers the Christian’s questions about our lives. What does God expect from us, His children? The signs stretch out along a straight and narrow path–the path of righteousness.

When one is filled with God’s Holy Spirit then he/she will desire to walk the walk and talk the talk that only God can show us. When things aren’t going quite right, we can cry out to our God saying, “What is expected of me?”

  • JUSTICE: Proverbs 29:26-27  Comes from the Lord
  • MERCY : Luke 6:36 Be merciful, receive mercy
  • HUMBLE: Matthew 18:4 A humble spirit gains one’s entrance into the kingdom of heaven
  • PATH: Psalm 23:3 Path of righteousness

Count the cost for following our Lord and Savior, Jesus, who gave His all for us. Jesus told us we’d have trouble in this world, but He paid the ultimate price for our salvation.

Revelation 21:6-7 “He said to me: ‘It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life. He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be my son.’ ”
