Have you ever put together a Jig-saw puzzle?

While it can be frustrating, yet it can be a lot of fun! Especially as one comes to the last moments of completion! Yes, finding those last pieces are very satisfying, indeed!

You then get to sit back and enjoy that completed picture!

THE BIBLE: A PUZZLE TO BE COMPLETED!

.

Well, the Bible is a type of jig-saw puzzle!

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Holy_bible.jpg

To a great degree, God has scrambled His truth in such a way, that it requires placing each piece of truth in its proper place.

.

Listen… “For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little…” Isaiah 28:10-12

.

As this above passage alludes, the truth of God must be searched out and placed in proper order, that we might understand just who is our God and Savior. Jesus is like a giant jig-saw puzzle, which must be completed, in order to understand His true nature and character and life.

“THAT I MAY KNOW HIM…”

Philippians 3:10

.

The fact is, Jesus Christ is a very complicated personage.

.

And though we think we understand who He is, the fact is, the more we study His Word, the more we discover that He is far different than we originally  believed!

.

Listen… “And this is life eternal, that they might know Thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom Thou hast sent.” John 17:3

.

Many things He did were enshrouded in mystery! But even those deeds were in harmony with His Law!

.

And of course, our partial knowledge of Christ, greatly affects our witness to the world! And because we “know in part, and prophesy in part”, our representation of Christ is an incomplete representation.

.

But the more we dig deeper into God’s Word, the more will we begin to understand those more puzzling aspects to His life!

OUR TESTIMONY TO OTHERS!

.

And so, our great commission is to study His Word, day-by-day, month-by-month, so as to become more and more  knowledgeable of Christ Jesus.

.

And as we “grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ”, the more complete will our life and our testimony be.

.

And as we grow up into His glorious image, our witness to others will become more and more effective in our ability to turn others away from their hopeless existence!

EVEN PAUL NEEDED MORE GROWTH!

.

Even the Apostle, Paul, knew that he was still incomplete in his witness to the world. Listen… “That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death; Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3;10, 13, 14.

.

So just as Paul continued to seek after the Prize, so we also need to continue to piece together this grandest of all jig-saw puzzles. And we must pray continually for grace and desire, that God may continually reveal His majestic character to us, as we contemplate His Word throughout our day!

UNTO THE STATURE OF THE FULLNESS OF CHRIST

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Holy_bible.jpg

.

And then, one of these days, will the following prophecy be fulfilled… “And He gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:” Ephesians 4:11-13

.

Yes, the Bible has the words of all those apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers, which God has given us, for our perfection, till we come to the fullness and perfection, unto a perfect man!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

 

.

.

.

THE HOLY GHOST RIDER CONSTELLATION

.

This newest Signs Of Heaven Constellation (Fall, 2013) is by far the faintest of constellations, but is a very incredible and awesome in a number of ways (which this article will explain).

Holy Ghost Rider (above western horizon)

.

It is primarily comprised of the Camelopardalis Constellation (head and upper back), plus about 5 stars from the Cassiopeia Constellation (his leg), plus some random stars. It appears as an outline of a rider. Only the back of his head is detailed. And his back and the back of his legs are also detailed. Both sides of his arm are visible, and his hand is gripping the horses mane, and that is detailed by three stars (which are also part of the horse’s mane). The rider is in a position vaguely similar to a race-horse jockey. The two brightest stars in this constellation, are from the Cassiopeia Constellation, and are part of his leg. All the rest of the stars are very faint, and must be viewed on a very starry night.

.

Since this constellation has just been revealed, there may be more to this constellation in the coming months. But if you can locate the Goodly Horse in Battle Constellation, then you shouldn’t have too much trouble locating this Rider Constellation.
