Beyond Amazement

RG AUDIO 101212

Job 26

Have you ever tried to describe God or explain who God is? Words fail us. Words aren’t enough, are they? But that is all we’ve got, so go ahead, take some time and think about who God is, what he has done, what he stands for.

God is beyond our full comprehension and understanding. Yet, this all powerful God made an on-purpose decision to not only create human beings but also to redeem us, communicate with us, and fellowship with us. That should not be taken lightly.

So, while it is impossible to adequately explain God, it is possible to love him. God, the all-powerful, is worthy of our praise, our respect, and our obedience. He deserves our lives, our possessions. He deserves our everything.

Remarkably, this God who is so beyond our comprehension is accessible. Just whisper his name and he will be there.

    Thought I would share my thoughts on making peace with the creation. They go along with your thought:

    To suggest God created sinful desires is blasphemy.

    To suggest man’s sin over-rode God’s perfection is also blasphemy.

    God named the “tree of knowledge of good & evil.”

    Results of good vs. results of evil brings forth knowledge of good & evil in “due” season.

    Rev. 19:18 can be interpreted as “digesting” the sin of all men (great & small) & the spirit on which they ride in comparison to the SINLESS walk of Jesus.

    Evaluation provides a loving purpose for the 10 commandments.

    God’s plan glorifies HIS love for us.

    God’s sacrifice of HIS Son glorifies “the way” of salvation that transforms the heart, mind & soul (which desires God’s Will to be done on earth).

    Romans 8:20 (NIV), “For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hopes that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.”

    I’ve heard the standard interpretation is that satan subjected us to frustration, but satan wouldn’t hope that the creation be liberated from it’s bondage to decay.

    Genesis 50:20 (NIV), “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being down, the saving of many lives.”
