JUST THINKIN'

“Just Thinkin’ “

Thursday 1-9-20

Have you ever pondered the fact that God deserves glory, honor, praise & worship for the simple fact that HE is GOD.  No, really. So many times we think of how deserving HE is of our worship because of all HE has done for us – and yes, that’s true. But even if HE never did anything for us… HE’d still deserve all glory, honor, praise & worship.  For… HE & HE ALONE… is GOD!

 

  • Before time as we know it -- HE was GOD!
  • Before the sun, moon & stars that we see… were made – HE was GOD!
  • Before this world was made – HE was GOD!
  • Before your family bloodline was in existence – HE was GOD!
  • Before the 1st man was ever created – HE was GOD!

 

A GOD… the GOD… of eternity past, present & eternity future!

 

Eternity  Past:

  • The time in which GOD the Father, Son & Holy Spirit existed before anything we are familiar with on this earth. Eternity when even this earth we live on was non-existent.

 

Revelation 22:13: 

"I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the

beginning and the end."

 

Psalm 90:2:

“Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.”

 

Eternity  Present:

  • Present day as we know it… in the arena of GOD’s eternal existence.

 

Revelation 1:8

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, who is, who was and is to come, the Almighty.”

 

Psalm 92:4-5

“For you make me glad by your deeds, O LORD; I sing for joy at the works of your hands.”

 

Eternity  Future:

  • Future days, months, years, decades, generations of the arena of GOD’s eternal – everlasting existence.

 

Revelation 22:13: 

"I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end."

Revelation 1:8

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, who was and is to come, the Almighty.”

 

Revelation 21:22-27

“I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp. The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it. On no day will its gates ever be shut, for there will be no night there. The glory and honor of the nations will be brought into it. Nothing impure will ever enter it, or will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those who se names are written I the Lamb’s book of life.”

(The Future Kingdom of GOD – the New Jerusalem – New Heaven & Earth)

 

My friends… do we really need to see HIM prove HIS worthiness to us?  Or have we come to the realization that:

  • HE is GOD no matter what?
  • HE deserves our honor, glory, praise & worship for this reason… & this reason alone?

 

I SURE HOPE SO!!!

 

I’m “Just Thinkin’ “,  isn’t it ‘bout time we stop looking for HIM to keep doing for us – and turn to HIM with our hearts full of THANKS, voices full of glory & praise… and our lives full of honor, striving to please  HIM for who HE is – the ALPHA & OMEGA… the beginning & the end… our EVERLASTING GOD!

 

Love ya’s,
