“Designer – Owner – Operator”

Designer

Isaiah 40:28 Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, The Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable.

It occurred to me this morning that the Creator of all that we can see in the skies and the earth that is under our feet is owned and operated by the Creator of it all. There is a portion that is under the control of the prince of the air, Satan by name or Lucifer which name he is also known by or even ‘devil’ is yet another name of which many follow him by.

When Yeshua stood in the temple and said, admitt.d, that He was “the Light of the world”, He was not lying but telling the truth, since when The Creator God said, “Let there be Light” that was the day, day one, that Yeshua entered this earthly dimension. And at that point, God separated Light from the darkness; Yeshua from Lucifer. Just something to think about, the Creator has given all of us, the ability to choose whether we want to walk in darkness or in the Light. God is Spirit and unless one is born of the Spirit, one will continue to walk in darkness. One must be born of water, a flesh and blood birth, and the Spirit, from above, from God, in order to enter that Spiritual Kingdom of Light where God and Yeshua rule and reign.

“The Greatest Weapon”

Light overcomes Darkness

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

In my estimation, Love is the greatest weapon that ever existed on this planet. Take a look at what Yeshua says: Luke 6:27-28 But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you.

Have you ever noticed how much warfare takes place when you turn on a light, none, the darkness must leave, it has no choice. It is the same with Love; hatred cannot stand up to love. Love is light and life hatred is death and darkness. More battles are won with love than with hatred. Hatred and darkness will, I say again, will be defeated because the God of Creation is a God of Light and Love.

“Construction Dates”

construction-site

Psalm 139: 13-16 (MSG) Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother’s womb. I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration—what a creation! You know me inside and out,     you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, the days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day.

I have been under construction for a very long time as we see it in this present life. I can say that I am 78 years 2 months and 4 days old but actually, I am a bit older than that since I must add an extra 9 months since my conception in mother’s womb. So actually, I am more like, just under, by 26 days, 79 years old. We all have an extra time of life to consider if we are honest about it. We were under construction in that safe place in Mother’s womb till we were ready to be pushed out into this world that we are now a part of. As I look at it now, I am fairly close to being pushed out into that next life which I will exist in for the rest of eternity. The question for all of us is, will we be pushed out into everlasting darkness or everlasting Light? For some of us it will be a terrifying darkness of eternal torment and for others, eternal glorious Light and that real life which is far more real than anything we have ever known before as told in the book of instructions, the Bible.

In the stage of construction we are now a part of, we have a certain amount of say in what kind of building we are becoming. Are we becoming a building of wood, hay or stubble or are we allowing ourselves to be built into gold, silver or precious stones? We have a say in this as we have been given authority to choose the materials we are being built with. According to this Word, the wood, hay and stubble will be burned up in the fire, and the gold, silver and precious stones will endure this fire that we shall all pass through into the next phase of existence, or not. We are all given the right to choose “life” or a “curse” as stated in Deuteronomy 30:19 (MSG)   I call Heaven and Earth to witness against you today: I place before you Life and Death, Blessing and Curse. Choose life so that you and your children will live. There is a choice we all must make.
