Greatness Of God
** Audio is in English
*** She sounds loud, but if you are a believer you know that someone with the Holy Spirit speaks with passion and it sounds loud. If you are an unbeliever no she is not angry :)! God Bless and enjoy the message!
A powerful message on how our life should look like when living for the greatness of God. Most people have God and Jesus as someone who serves them, but if you carefully read the Word of God and take this to heart you will read that we belong to Him. Most people want to live life comma God, but that is not what God says. We hope this sermon will set you free and bring you the Truth of what God really says. Your eternal destination depends upon it.
Part Of This Message
Talk about the greatness of God from a very different viewpoint. The first Scripture I want to read is John 17 (AMPC) this is where Jesus is praying for his disciples he is told them there at that place and now he is he is praying for them.
Read 1-3 1 When Jesus had spoken these things, He lifted up His eyes to heaven and said, Father, the hour has come. Glorify and exalt and honor and magnify Your Son, so that Your Son may glorify and extol and honor and magnify You. Because we are to be molded into the image of Jesus. God is our heavenly father and as our heavenly father he wants us to be the image of his son and as the image of his son our sole purpose in life is to honor and magnify God.
2. [Just as] You have granted Him power and authority over all flesh (all humankind), [now glorify Him] so that He may give eternal life to all whom You have given Him. I want to read this because I'm going to be talking about predestination. 3 And this is eternal life: [it means] to know (to perceive, recognize, become acquainted with, and understand) You, the only true and real God, and [likewise] to know Him, Jesus [as the] Christ (the Anointed One, the Messiah), Whom You have sent. Our eternal life means that we have a drive and a passion in our heart to know recognize and understand God and to understand Jesus as the Christ.
That is to be our understanding. This is where we have start to go. To understand Him as the Christ the first thing that you have to see is that Jesus says you are to give up your life. You are to lay it down and then you are to you follow him and he is going to take you to the cross to die.
Christians today don't want to do that. That's not what their looking for. Their looking for someone to pamper them. When I was praying one day and the Holy Spirit said to me that soon I'm going to have to write a bible study about the American blue-eyed, blond-haired, tanned Jesus because he doesn't exist. Yet everyone in America is looking Him.
Psalm 139:17 says God, how difficult Your thoughts are for me to comprehend; how vast their sum is! and then it says Lord You have searched me and known me. You know when I sit down and when I stand up; You understand my thoughts from far away.
So he is saying how difficult it is for God's thoughts are comprehend but God knows every thought we have, even before we have it. He knows exactly where we are going to come from. He's talking about having yourself examined by God. In Jeremiah 17 says The heart is more deceitful than anything else, and incurable--who can understand it? We have an incurable heart when were born. And only Christ can cure it, only Christ can heal it and make it what is supposed to be.
for some this is received well for others it is un-welcomed. God knows our innermost self, He knows everything about us and to me this is part of His greatness. These Scriptures I hang onto because of what is says to me. What does greatness mean? Psalm 145:1 I exalt You, my God the King, and praise Your name forever and ever. 2 I will praise You every day; I will honor Your name forever and ever. 3 Yahweh is great and is highly praised; His greatness is unsearchable....

Romans 9:1-17 (GW)
No Longer Slaves to Sin, but God’s Servants
1 As a Christian, I’m telling you the truth. I’m not lying. The Holy Spirit, along with my own thoughts, supports me in this. 2 I have deep sorrow and endless heartache. 3 I wish I could be condemned and cut off from Christ for the sake of others who, like me, are Jewish by birth. 4 They are Israelites, God’s adopted children. They have the Lord’s glory, the pledges, Moses’ Teachings, the true worship, and the promises. 5 The Messiah is descended from their ancestors according to his human nature. The Messiah is God over everything, forever blessed. Amen.
6 Now it is not as though God’s word has failed. Clearly, not everyone descended from Israel is part of Israel 7 or a descendant of Abraham. However, as Scripture says, “Through Isaac your descendants will carry on your name.” 8 This means that children born by natural descent from Abraham are not necessarily God’s children. Instead, children born by the promise are considered Abraham’s descendants.
9 For example, this is what the promise said, “I will come back at the right time, and Sarah will have a son.” 10 The same thing happened to Rebekah. Rebekah became pregnant by our ancestor Isaac. 11 Before the children had been born or had done anything good or bad, Rebekah was told that the older child would serve the younger one. This was said to Rebekah so that God’s plan would remain a matter of his choice, 12 a choice based on God’s call and not on anything people do. 13 The Scriptures say, “I loved Jacob, but I hated Esau.”
14 What can we say—that God is unfair? That’s unthinkable! 15 For example, God said to Moses, “I will be kind to anyone I want to. I will be merciful to anyone I want to.” 16 Therefore, God’s choice does not depend on a person’s desire or effort, but on God’s mercy.
17 For example, Scripture says to Pharaoh, “I put you here for this reason: to demonstrate my power through you and to spread my name throughout the earth.” 18 Therefore, if God wants to be kind to anyone, he will be. If he wants to make someone stubborn, he will.
19 You may ask me, “Why does God still find fault with anyone? Who can resist whatever God wants to do?”
20 Who do you think you are to talk back to God like that? Can an object that was made say to its maker, “Why did you make me like this?” 21 A potter has the right to do whatever he wants with his clay. He can make something for a special occasion or something for everyday use from the same lump of clay.
22 If God wants to demonstrate his anger and reveal his power, he can do it. But can’t he be extremely patient with people who are objects of his anger because they are headed for destruction? 23 Can’t God also reveal the riches of his glory to people who are objects of his mercy and who he had already prepared for glory? 24 This is what God did for us whom he called—whether we are Jews or not.
