The Name For God “Elohim”

By wisdom the Lord laid the earth foundations, by understanding he set the heaven in place. Proverbs 3-19

By wisdom the Lord laid the earth’s foundation, by understanding he set the heavens in place: by his knowledge the watery depths were divided. and the clouds let drop the dew.   (Proverbs 3:19-20)

Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength not one of them is missing?                         (Isaiah 40:26)

Their are many names that people use to call God the one today that I will share with you is “Elohim” the Hebrew name for God. Which means the God who has created the heavens and the earth and more important, He has created you. I recently was reading the book by author Wendy Blight and is called “I known His Name” The scriptures declares that our God is a personal God and a loving and forgiving father. He demands justice, yet extends grace. He is kind and compassionate and allows for free will, but mandates that this free will has consequences when wrongly exercised. However, because of His grace, in the midst of those consequences, God extends mercy and promise to never leave or forsake us. Can you image if everyone in our world would come to know God on a personal level in their own life they would begin to see changes from the inside-out that only God can ever do in any of us. It is not just going to church on a Sunday morning that makes any of us to know God in a personal way, it is searching the scriptures and our own prayer life that we come to know the “Great I Am”

We begin this journey to begin to know who God is, lets read Genesis 1:1-2 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth, Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. Try and picture in your mind a big nothing and from that big nothing God began to created the world as we know it today. So during many of my writings I will share with you the different names of God. God is an infinite being without beginning and without an end. (Revelation 21:6, 22:13)  But Genesis 1:1 God initiated a work that is measured by time as we understand it.  Our God has done great and unsearchable things beyond our comprehension. He brought into existence every natural wonder the eye can see, every twinkling star, every delicate snowflake, every drop of rain, every beautiful  cloud, every crisp cool day, everything in its beauty God has created for mankind t enjoy.

God’s Master Piece!

Psalm 19The heavens declare the glory of God, the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech, night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words, no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.  It is like a bridegroom coming out of the chamber, like a champion rejoicing to run his course. It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other, nothing is deprived of its warmth.                                             Psalm 19:1-6

I am blessed to live in the county because on a clear night with not one cloud in sight this is the beauty that I look up to and I am totally amaze by it. Take a good look at the picture above of all the stars in the sky. Just think of it for a moment, this is the beauty that God the God of the universe created for mankind to enjoy all of its beauty. This is so much better than television, and computer or anything that we try to replace it with. If there comes a time in your life when you begin to doubt for any reason if God is real, take a ride to the mountains and you will begin to see the beauty that he has created for us. Try to see thru the eyes of a child the beauty in this world, yes I know that mankind has turn somethings terrible, but you need to look past all of the horrible things and the hatred and begin to see the beauty. When you can lay in the grass look up and be amaze at this beauty, look at the different clouds and try to make different shapes in your eyes like a little child and then your doubt is no more.

Wisdom and Understanding

Colossians 2.jpg Paul who was a follower of Jesus Christ was in Roman prison when he wrote to the church in Colossae. False teachers were coaching the Colossians to worship angles and follow special rules and ceremonies. Paul corrected this thinking through his letter, stressing that faith in Christ is sufficient for salvation and that nothing needs to be added to Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. All the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are hidden in Jesus. So he is relevant to absolutely everything! The world is such a fragmented place, with many voices calling out to all of us-claiming to have the answers, When we are learning or experiencing new things, it is vital to stay in communication with God. He can help us understand things from His perspective, drawing on His wisdom. He wants all of us to examine everything in the Light of biblical truth. If you and I keep Jesus central to our thoughts, we can discern order and design in a chaotic world. There will continue to be things any of us can comprehend, because we live in a broken world. Acknowledging the limits of our understanding opens the way to profound worship. This will encourage our hearts, as well as the hearts of our fellow worshippers, to worship Jesus and Jesus only. To worship Jesus our hearts must be united in love, woven into a beautiful love-tapestry. As we worship, this united, we can enjoy His majestic presence together in ways that transcend our individual experience. This enables us to venture further and further into Jesus vast hidden treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
