Scripture reading: Psalm 8

There is one thing that comes to me and that is the words Jehovah, Lord God Almighty. These are the most powerful words in all of our vocabulary and, I assure you, we will not understand it today or forever. There is a scripture where the Lord said to Moses, “You have not known Me by this name before” and He told Moses the name Jehovah (Exodus 6:3). We translate it badly as Jehovah, Yah Vah Che Vah. The Yah at the beginning means God in Hebrew. The rest of the phrase or word gives us the feeling of Almighty.

I just pray and wish that we could understand within ourselves what Almighty is. You think of someone who could make the moon, the stars, the sun and the earth, anchor them upon nothing and have them moving around like a big clock keeping time, without ever missing a second. We understand that they have been going now for over 6,000 years and we don’t even understand very much what 1,000 years means. But this God, He built this universe and did all these things and you ask yourself the question:

“Why did He do it? What is His intention? He must have some reason, don’t you think?”

I mean if I build a chair, I have a reason. I want to sit down. This God built all these things here and some of us take it for granted as though it were nothing. But that is the front of the Book. Let us go to the back of the Book. If we do so, we find out that what God wants is a temple to dwell in not made by hands. God wanted a temple to dwell in so He took up a handful of dirt and made a man. After He made that man, you would think that He would put a protection around that man so that nothing could touch him. But He did the opposite to that; He let him loose where the devil could get him. God’s reason is that if you cannot overcome the evil, you have no use for good. So in order to make man good, God let loose evil upon him.

Have you ever thought of why we have so much trouble as Christians? Next time we sing, let us start to praise God for the trouble that we have, for that is the only way that God is going to get sons of God. He has let us loose in a world that is very close to hell. Every circumstance seems to be designed to test us to the core, so therefore He sent Jesus, His only begotten Son (that is what we call Him).

It is like a man who marries a woman and they have a child from the seed of the man. So it is that God brought forth a Son out of His own being. This Son is a Pattern of what He is going to make us to be. Have you ever thought of it, that soon you will be walking this earth like Jesus Christ Himself? But you ask yourself the question: “How can that happen from such a wretched existence?”

When I bow before God, I feel like a piece of earth. I feel dirty. I see my sins and weaknesses. I say to myself, “How could God make a son of God out of this?” Yet, this is God’s plan and God’s plan is about to come to pass.
