IN THE PRESENCE OF JEHOVAH

rainbow


Last week three specific things happened in my life: the first was a “prophetic word” sent to me by a missionary in South Africa, the second was a note from a pastor/leader with a “directional word” for me from God, and the third was during a visit with a dear friend who has been told that no more can be done for her regarding the cancer that is destroying her right lung. Within each, the glory and peace of God’s presence was highlighted for me. I was reading my Bible (Ezekiel 1) one morning this week and in verses 26-28 and the words, rainbow, glory, and fire stood out to me.

According to Nelson’s Bible Dictionary, the rainbow is a sign of the glorious presence of God. It is the continual reminder of God’s faithfulness and that His mercy and grace will finally triumph. I have always enjoyed seeing a rainbow in the sky; the sight fills me with wonder, thankfulness, and a great sense of peace.

Rainbow: Gk. epo (2036) means to speak or say (by word or writing)–answer, bid, bring word, say (on), speak, tell. The primary verb (3006) lego: to “lay” forth, (fig.) relate (in words, usually of systemic or set discourse) etc.

I have been writing this webpage for a couple years now and I know that the Spirit of the LIVING GOD has directed me in all that I have written, with today being no exception. So, consider the possibility that God is using me (as like a rainbow) this very moment to reveal His presence in your life! Certainly, God manifested His glory to Noah (rainbow), Moses (I believe in the pillar of cloud and fire), Ezekiel (fire, rainbow), disciples (white light), and John (New Jerusalem) (Genesis 9: 12-16; Exodus 13: 17-22; 33: 12-19; Ezekiel 1: 22-28; Matthew 17: 1-8; Revelation 21: 9-11, 23-27).

My friend, Judy has always had so much joy and she does not hesitate in finding out how your personal relationship with God is going. She has “extreme faith” and sees this illness as a way for her to draw even closer to God and the one thing she desires most of all is to see and touch His glory. When I was with her and two other women a couple weeks ago, God manifested His presence in a “tangible” way and it was a different experience for each woman there. Judy felt the heat of His “fire” and cried out for even greater purification and revelation of His glory. Jeanie praised God for the angels He had sent to us as she felt her hair being touched along with a deep sense of peace. Pearlie was reassured of His love for her as the others prayed into her ministry and she rejoiced as she felt pain leaving her joints and new strength filling her. I just could not stop the tears as I felt so much love for my sisters and I felt Holy Spirit pour over me in waves.

When I spoke with Judy a couple nights ago, she was so filled with joy about the peace God continues to provide her. She said, “You know, I just give Him thanks for everything I can think of every day. He has put me in this place of rest, like the ‘secret place’ where I am able to just talk to Him all day and all night long. I will continue to ask Him each day to show me His glory and I do believe I am feeling it and will see it soon! I feel wonderful. I am looking pretty good too, with new, natural curling hair (which she had us pray for after she lost hers due to chemo treatments) and I am eating and sleeping well. I have everything I need!” Her positive, life-filled words often bring their own conviction on each of us, her friends. She asked me a question that I have often thought about in the past, but am now revisiting: “Judy, how do you see God?”

As it happened, I had been reading Ezekiel and all the above passages in relation to the “words” that my brothers had sent. I had this answer for her: “I believe God is Whoever you need Him to be at any given time and in any situation; I believe God is like “pure energy”. He is not constrained by time, distance, or space and He can take any form He needs to make Himself more real to you personally. It is why, I believe, that everyone will experience something different when they seek a personal touch from Him. It is why Moses, Ezekiel, the disciples, the blind, lame, addicted, hurting, lonely, isolated, and dying will see Him with different eyes, and will have all their needs fulfilled at “just the right time and in just the right way” and it will be “exactly what they will understand.” To be honest, I believe Ezekiel’s vision was the most accurate description of God; however, I am certain that each of you will have your own thoughts.

God is all-powerful (Omnipotent) Lord who has created all things and sustains them by the Word of His power (Genesis 1: 1-3; Hebrews 1: 3). He is the ruler of nature and history. In today’s world, this should bring you great peace for before Him, “…the nations are as a drop in a bucket, and are counted as small dust on the balance” (Isaiah 40: 15). Yet, He has so fashioned us that He graciously appeals to every person to return to Him.

God has unlimited ability to be everywhere at all times (Omnipresent) and He reveals Himself in the Bible as the Lord who is everywhere. God was present as Lord in all creation (Psalm 139: 7-12) and there is no escaping Him. He is present in our thoughts, was present in the womb and is in all the days of our future. God sees “in secret and rewards in secret” and He looks not just on our outward actions, but even more closely at the attitudes of our heart (Matthew 6: 1-18). He is the Sustainer of all things He has created and because He is everywhere, He is our great Comforter, Friend, and Redeemer!

God is perfect Wisdom; He knows all things (Omniscient). He knows each of your thoughts, all your ways, and even the words we have NOT yet spoken (Psalm 139: 1-6, 13-16). He has no need to consult with you or me for knowledge or understanding (Isaiah 40: 13, 14). He is all-knowing Lord who prophesies the events of the future, including the death of His Son (Isaiah 53) and the return of Christ at the end of this age when death will be finally overcome (Romans 8: 18-39; 1 Corinthians 15: 51-57). ONLY the all-knowing and all-powerful God can begin a process of change in each of us; for “where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty” (2 Corinthians 3: 17).

What a glorious thing it is to KNOW that GOD HAS EVERYTHING IN CONTROL; what incredible PEACE He brings to all who believe! Hallelujah!
