God Reveals Himself in a Number of Ways

heaven

God wants His creation to know Him.

God uses several different ways to reveal Himself to man.

1- God reveals Himself to man and the rest of His creation through the creation itself.

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse”
–Romans 1:18-20

” Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.”
–Psalm 40:5

2- God reveals Himself through His Son, Jesus Christ.

“Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.”
–John 14:8-10

“Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me. And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.”
–John 12:44-45

3- We see the LORD revealed in the events happening around us–ESPECIALLY the events foretold in God’s Word.  (Whenever one of those events takes on a “miraculous” appearance, the world rushes to explain it away.)

This type of heavenly revelation is one of those benefits which accrue to believers only. Non-believers shake their heads and wonder how it is that otherwise perfectly normal people can exhibit a rock-solid belief in a being they cannot see.

At times, this Godly download consists of the work of God’s Holy Spirit (which will lead the believer into all truth).

Other times, the believer accesses extra info through FAITH.

Still other times, the believer attains knowledge through a combination of the Holy Spirit leading the believer to discover the meaning behind God’s Word.

But non-believers do not have access to the information which believers do. So, non-believers are victims ofvarious incomplete particulars of the matter they attempt to discuss.

4- One of the primary ways God reveals Himself is through His Word.

“For I am the LORD: I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass; it shall be no more prolonged: for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word, and will perform it, saith the Lord GOD.”
–Ezekiel 12:25

“For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.”
–1THESSALONIANS 1:5

“For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.”
–1THESSALONIANS 2:13

Using the four methods listed, as well as several others, God reveals himself and His qualities to man.

God wants His creation to know Him; to know about Him.

BUT, for God to be revealed, man must be both watching and listening.

“(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)”
–2CORINTHIANS 5:7

IS the reader watching?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16

The Current Dismantling of the United States

DISMANTLE

After being mentioned earlier by one person, someone else made a remark during the past week which addressed current events in the United States.

“It seems to me that the United States is being systematically dismantled.”

The answer?

“It’s hard to disagree with that.”

“That’s just the way it seems to me.”

“I happen to agree with you.  HOWEVER…”

“However?”

“However, no one complained when after World War II, the United States was made the richest country in the world.  When the rest of the world was FORCED to send whatever it had of value–gold, oil, metals, fruits, coffee, whatever–to America in return for those little green slips of paper called dollars, no one here complained. 

There was a reason–an END TIMES REASON–that happened as it did.”

But it seems unfair to complain now that the rest of the world has largely quit playing that game.”

“How do you figure?”

“What goes up must come down.”

DOES the reader become upset that the USA appears to be “going down the tubes“?

God and End Times Judgment: God’s Four Sore Judgments

judgment

“For thus saith the Lord GOD; How much more when I send my four sore judgments upon Jerusalem, the sword, and the famine, and the noisome beast, and the pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast?”
–Ezekiel 14:21

Many have been taught that the end times are a time of God’s judgment, BUT what forms will that judgment take?

God’s Word is NOT silent on the matter.

“For thus saith the Lord GOD; How much more when I send my four sore judgments upon Jerusalem, the sword, and the famine, and the noisome beast, and the pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast?”
Ezekiel 14:21

God declares he has four “sore judgments”:

  1. The sword (war)
  2. The famine
  3. The noisome (unpleasant, nasty) beast
  4. The pestilence (disease)

Compare these four judgments found in the Old Testament with the opening of the four seals in Revelation 6 and the beginning of God’s judgments upon the earth (in the days immediately before the return of Jesus Christ).

The second seal is opened and war is unleashed upon the earth.

“And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.”

The third seal is opened and famine overtakes the planet. It costs a day’s wages to buy enough bread to feed one.

“And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.”

When the fourth seal is opened, God unleashes all four of His “sore judgments” at once.

“And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.”

Are these judgments the only ones God has at His disposal.

No.
END TIMES JUDGMENTS: What are the Judgments of God?

HOWEVER, the judgments listed above–and the judgments which stick in many people’s minds–are the most dramatic and life-threatening: war, famine, pestilence, death by wild beasts.

BUT, God will exercise OTHER judgments as well.

END TIMES JUDGMENTS: Hardening of the Heart

One judgment which many either ignore or disbelieve altogether is the one about death by wild beasts.

JUDGMENT: The Increase of Wild Beasts and Attacks in the End Times

This particular judgment (at first) doesn’t seem to be an equal in severity with war, famine or pestilence…

…UNLESS one is caught in the jaws of a devouring beast.

Readers who are still alive when God’s judgments are unleashed upon a world which has totally disavowed its Creator will be able to SEE the damage created by an angry God which many believed did NOT exist.

The Hammer Blows of Chaos in the End Times

According to God’s Word, God would prefer that ALL men change direction (repent), come to God and VOLUNTARILY dedicate themselves to the One Who Created ALL.

In the Book of Ezekiel, God expresses these desires AS PERTAINED TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL.

“Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?”
–Ezekiel 33:11

HOWEVER, man is quite stubborn and prideful.

Not only is man deceived about where TRUE POWER is located, end times man is deceived about the very existence of his Creator, God Almighty.

Which is one reason, from time-to-time, God has to remind man of how things REALLY are.

When these reminders occur, man is fearful and open to changing his mind–for a little while.

THEN, Satan goes back to whispering in man’s ear and man gets busy with “living his life“–until the next reminder.

“Say thou thus unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; As I live, surely they that are in the wastes shall fall by the sword, and him that is in the open field will I give to the beasts to be devoured, and they that be in the forts and in the caves shall die of the pestilence.”
–Ezekiel 33:27

DOES the reader believe he will escape judgment?

DOES the reader believe he will face judgment at all?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

DOES the reader believe he is saved?
