Omni God (part One)
Ephesians 4:6 – One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
Before Jesus lived, there was the Old Testament. Jesus is the Holy One of whom the OT prophets foretold. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob was and is the One True God.
Isaiah 12:6 – Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.
For centuries man has tried to explain God. The Greeks believed in many gods controlling different areas of our life. Many people say there is no god and it is impossible to have power over so many events.
If you play chess, how many moves ahead of the current move can you predict to control the play of your adversary. Our finite minds can not grasp the full knowledge of God. He knows where we will be in five years. Even if you “mess up”, He knows where you will be.
2 Timothy 2:7 – Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.
We can not fully understand God. Our mind is limited and His ways are boundless. Man must recognize he does not know it all. There is a Supreme Creator of man whose ways are higher than we can attain. The Supreme Creator is God.
Only by Faith can we begin to fathom the depths of His ways. Faith allows us to “let it go”. BUT, Faith is not a reason to quit. Faith is not the point where we stop and God starts. Faith is the point where we offer our lives to God and LIVE FOR HIM. We don’t “give up” to have faith. Faith is a walk we must take. Get up by Faith. Shine by Faith. Love your enemies by Faith.
1 Corinthians 15:28b – that God may be all in all.
