Today’s Devotional – May 11th

Thy Will IS Done in Earth!

.

.

.

.

.

Jesus stood before His disciples and prayed thus, “Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done…”.

Whenever the words are discussed, “Thy will be done, in earth, as it is in Heaven”, someone will undoubtedly say, “Well, someday, God shall be able to do His will for us!”

.

But it is the belief of this website that God is right now doing His own will down here on earth!

.

But also, that all things that happen to us, both good and bad, are also the will of God, in Christ Jesus, concerning us!

JOSEPH’S TROUBLES

.

Now let’s take a look at Joseph, the son of Jacob.

.

Should Joseph have given thanks for how his brothers mocked him, because of his dream? http://thebiblerevival.com

.

Or should Joseph have given thanks to God for when his brothers threw him into a pit?

.

Or should Joseph have given thanks for when he was sold into slavery in Egypt?

.

Or how about when he was falsely accused by Potiphar’s wife? Or how about his getting thrown into prison?

.

Were all these things the will of God concerning Joseph?

.

Well, no doubt Satan had a hand in all these mishaps, the same as he did in Job’s mishaps! (Read the Book of Job)

GOD IS IN FULL CONTROL!

.

But let’s face it! Hasn’t God spared us many times from some evil thing?

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:La_Bible,_Notre-Dame_du_Taur,_septembre_2011.jpgAnd couldn’t He prevent all evil? Yes He could! But He doesn’t, does He?

.

Yes, sometimes God does permit evil in our lives.

.

But that is why God gave us the Bible: to show us that even the evil things will work together for good, to those of us who love God.

.

And we all are familiar with that wonderful promise… “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28.

THY WILL IS BEING DONE…HERE!?!

But we have an even more revealing promise. Listen… “In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:” Ephesians 1:11.

.

Now this almost sounds like God is saying that all things are His will! How could that be?

.

Well, God is even more clear in this next statement. Listen… “And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and He doeth according to His will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay His hand, or say unto Him, What doest Thou?” Daniel 4:35.

.

Now at this point, many are probably getting ready to leave the room! Or perhaps they’re wanting to say… “You’re not trying to tell me that God is doing His own will in this horrible, horrible world are you?”

GOD EVEN CHOOSES OUR RULERS!

.

That little book of Daniel has some pretty big truths!

.http://www.wikigallery.org/wiki/painting_210747/William-Brassey-Hole/Daniel-interprets-the-dream-of-Nebuchadnezzar

Another such truth is found in Chapter 4… “…that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever He will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.” Daniel 4:17

.

Yes, we actually think that we choose our earthly leaders. And so we go and vote.

.

But this verse reveals that God is the One who chooses which leader will rule this, and every other kingdom on Earth. And God even sets up the basest of men! And so it’s no wonder our leaders are so corrupt, quite often!

THIS WORLD: GOD’S GOLD-SMITH SHOP!

.

And so, as strangers and pilgrims in this unhappy world, let’s take heart that the things which happen in this world are no accident!

.

No, this world is God’s silver & gold-smithing shop! And God is sitting as a purifier of gold and silver… the gold of faith, love, and purity in the hearts of His Chosen Ones: us!

.

You see, God’s ultimate will is for His creation to be happy throughout all eternity! Yes, that’s God’s ultimate will! And His will shall be accomplished, even though things seem really out of control here.

TODAY’S PRAYER…

“Dear Lord, Help me to fully grasp this concept of giving thanks in both the good as well as the bad things that happen. Help me to understand that nothing can happen to me, either good or bad, unless you allow it to happen…

GRASPING FOR SCEPTER AND A 

 

CROWN…

.

.

This page however just deals with the Woman travailing in child-birth. When she is in labor, she appears to reach out her hand southward to grasp a The Cross/Scepter, which is coming from the South, out of an ark-like box. There also is a Crown of 12 Stars (13 counting a star in the center). But the Crown (the Corona Borealis Constellation) is not yet on her head. The crown is to the south of her. So she is grasping for the Cross/Scepter. She doesn’t yet wear the crown. This reminds us of that well-known passage in Philippians which states…

.

“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.” Phil.3:13, 14

.

And also another verse of the apostle Paul… “Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:8. So this woman with child is grasping, either for that Cross/Scepter, or perhaps that crown, or both. This is such an incredible scenario in the heavens! But this is a very complex concept. Because this headless woman-with-child, which turns upside down in winter to become the “Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12”; and combine this with that Crown and that Cross/Scepter, of which she appears to be grasping for in summer, and these various aspects present a great portion of what the Bible is about.

SKETCH WITH JOSHUA TREES…The above sketch are the Summer Constellations .as they appear when in the western half of the night sky. The box-like constellation is the The Ark of the Covenant (AKASagittarius Constellation) is in the south. To the right is both the Flower of the Field Constellation and above the flower is The Cross/Scepter Constellation. Further to the north is the Crown of Revelation Twelve (AKA Corona Borealis ) and the star, Arcturus . Farthest to the north is the Woman of Revelation 12 part one (Woman in Travail) (AKA Ursa Major). Of course, in this sketch is the desert with several Joshua Tress and some mesas, and a few other plants.
