“13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated [us] into the kingdom of his dear Son: 14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, [even] the forgiveness of sins: 15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all [things] he might have the preeminence.”
Brothers and Sisters do you Understand The Sovereignty Of God? Too many people think they can Tie Gods Hands behind His back by Quoting Scripture or Manipulating Scripture or Going To church, thinking they can Demand God to Perform on Their Behalf.
To Understand The Sovereignty Of God we must cast aside all Misconceptions of Who God Is in our Own Personal Minds. In some cases, probably most, we need to Cast Off Religion as a whole. We, through the Blood Of Jesus, are The Children Of God, because of The Sovereignty Of God.
Now, before I go on, Sovereignty means: the ultimate overseer, or authority, in the decision-making process of the state and in the maintenance of order; supreme power or authority; self-governing.
With this Understanding we Need to Understand that God, can do Anything He Wants, Any Way He Wants. He Is God…
Now the Question arises…How much does God Love Us? We can all answer and say that The Father sent His Only Son, Jesus to Die in Our Places, to take upon Himself the Wrath Of The Father for us, giving us passage into Heaven. But that is only one piece of God.
What would God do for Your Love For Him? Would He Kill? Would He Allow Bad Things to happen? Would He… the Answer is Yes.
“And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that [is] behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts.”
“And they utterly destroyed all that [was] in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword.”
Many of you would say, “Well that is the Old Testament…God doesn’t do that any more…” and you would only be partly right. God still will do Anything For Our Love and Not Compromise Who He Is.
We find in the New Testament…
“2 And kept back [part] of the price, his wife also being privy [to it], and brought a certain part, and laid [it] at the apostles’ feet. 3 But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back [part] of the price of the land? 4 Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God. 5 And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things. 6 And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried [him] out, and buried [him]. 7 And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in. 8 And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much. 9 Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband [are] at the door, and shall carry thee out. 10 Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying [her] forth, buried [her] by her husband. 11 And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard these things.”
“To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.”
The Father, Son and Holy Spirit will do Anything for To Their Ends in Supporting Their Sovereignty For Our Good! What this means is that God, The Father, The Son, The Holy Spirit are Holy and they will NOT ALLOW Anything to Compromise Their Holiness, but, will do Anything To Keep You With In Their Holiness.
God wants His People, His Children to be as He Is. When we read the Old Testament we find that anything that went against Who God Is, was Not Allowed and even Destroyed if necessary. We need to Understand that The Sovereignty Of God has Never Changed and it Will Not Ever Change.
“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”
“Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.”
In God’s Sovereignty, He will Not Allow to be put in Second Place to Any One or Any Thing. God is a Jealous God since the Beginning Of Time and will be to The End Of Time as we know it.
“For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name [is] Jealous, [is] a jealous God:”
Now, you Need To Understand the Worship part here. It is Anything that You Hold In The Highest Respect. So this means that it can be Family, Friends, Jobs, People Of Power, Sports and Anything else that can Hold You Captive, Demanding Your Allegiance!
“34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36 And a man’s foes [shall be] they of his own household. 37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.”
“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
Brothers and Sisters we should Answer only to Jesus and Nothing Else. Jesus has been given All Power, All Authority In Judgment and we will Answer to Him!
Too many of you Do NOT Fear God, Do NOT Fear Jesus, are Not truly Understanding His Sovereignty!!! You go to church, you sing a few songs, you read a few Scriptures and then return to Whom You Are Without Change, Without Fear and Without Reverence To Jesus in Your Lives!!!
Yes, We have Grace, Yes We have Obtained Mercy but , we are not to take Advantage of what The Father has given us. He is Still Sovereign!
“Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.”
“What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.”
The one Law that will Never Change, is The Sovereignty Of God. Whether it is By The Law or By Faith, this One Law will always be.
The Church has Lost what it means to Serve A Sovereign God! You think that you can Go and Do and Say anything that you want and get away with it, but herein is your ignorance. Jesus is Long Suffering, meaning, He is Long In Waiting, Willing to do The Time, Willing to Have Patience… but there is a end.
Jesus, as His Father does, looks and sees from The Beginning and The End of a Thing or Person. To His Glory, Jesus will Try and Lead Us to a Better Life, but if He sees that there is a Bitter End, He will do whatever is necessary to Protect You and Keep His Sovereignty.
Most of you need to Bow Down and Truly Worship Jesus. Most of you need to Ask for Forgiveness because you have not Honored A Sovereign God, but have Lived How Ever You Think Is Right According To Your Flesh!
If The Word says you are to be, then why have You Chosen to be Different?
“And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?”
Are You Above Jesus? Are You Sovereign Above Jesus?
If The Word says To Do and You Do Not, then it is Sin! If The Word says Not To and You Do, then it is Sin!! There is a Great Sin in The Church among Husbands, Wives, Children Not Obeying The Word, Not Understanding The Sovereignty Of God!!!
You come up with Your Own Excuses of Why Not To Honor God, but all are Excuses Of The Flesh and Not The Spirit Of God!!!
Brothers and Sisters Seek God with All Your Heart and Mind, Present The Sovereignty Of God in Your Actions, Your Words that those who are Lost In Sin may Know that you are God’s Child. That You Will Not Compromise Who God Is!
If you Do Not Honor The Scriptures, then, You Do Not Honor Jesus!!!
Is Jesus Sovereign
In Your Life?
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
