AN INDEPENDENT BEING

[Here is a powerful description of our wonderful Abba Father!. He formed the earth; he created the wind; he knows the inmost thoughts of the heart; he is the Creator of darkness and light; he steps from mountain to mountain, and has all things under his feet! Who is he WHO HAS DONE AND CAN DO all these things? Jehovah Elohim Tsebaoth that is his name. Which means: *The self-existing, eternal, and independent Being *The God who is in covenant with mankind *The universal Commander of all the hosts of earth and heaven!] “He who forms the mountains, who creates the wind, and who reveals his thoughts to mankind, who turns dawn to darkness, and treads on the heights of the earth– THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY IS HIS NAME.” (Amos 4:13) [*He pardons our iniquity. This is the God’s prerogative alone; of that Being who alone has power to save or to destroy *He forgives our transgression. He can heal backsliding, and restore them that are fallen * He does not retain his anger forever. Although, He is justly displeased because of our sin, He pours out his judgments upon the wicked; yet when they return to him, he shows once again, He does not retain His anger, but is extremely ready to save them!] “WHO IS A GOD LIKE YOU, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy. You will again have compassion on us; you WILL TREAD OUR SINS UNDERFOOT AND HURL ALL OUR INIQUITIES INTO THE DEPTHS OF THE SEA.” (Mic. 7:18-19) [God’s infinite love is the groundwork of our salvation; in reference to us that love assumes the form of mercy, and that mercy provides the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ!] “…Because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions–IT IS BY GRACE YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus…expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this is not from yourselves, IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD– not by works, so that no one can boast.” (Eph. 2:4-9) [Jesus is the chief angle or foundation corner stone, the connecting medium by which both Jews and Gentiles were united in the same building!] “Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but FELLOW CITIZENS WITH GOD’S PEOPLE and also members of his household, BUILT ON THE FOUNDATION OF THE APOSTLES AND PROPHETS, with CHRIST JESUS HIMSELF AS THE CHIEF CORNERSTONE.” (Eph. 2:19-20)

Be blessed as you praise The Lord, knowing that IT IS BY GRACE WE HAVE BEEN SAVED, THROUGH FAITH–AND THIS IS NOT FROM OURSELVES, IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD!
