Text: “Come and SEE the works of God: He is terrible in His doing toward the children of men.”
morning, clear-sighted Christian! You
and I are fearfully and wonderfully constituted within the Body of Christ Jesus
– for we can see with ears and eyes, all the wonderous works of the Lord God
Who has redeemed our never-dying souls through Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!
Let us remind ourselves often of the wonderous works of our God!
Heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth His handiwork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto
night showeth knowledge. There is no
speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.” (Psalm 19:1-3)
‘…doing towards the children of men…’ can be clearly seen, as it was literally
seen in Old and New Testament times, by those whom, by the inspiration,
guidance, and direction of God the Holy Spirit, were ordained of the Living
Lord to record the Holy Scriptures. As
in all of my Bible expositions, I have God’s own Word – Divine chapter and verse
authority - on this subject.
this first, that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private
interpretation. For the prophecy came
not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were
moved by the Holy Ghost.” (2 Peter
teachers/preachers cannot at any time merely give out our own verbal or written
opinions, or schools of thought, on any such important matter as Eternal
Salvation, Spiritual direction; or doctrinal practice and belief. No! We
must at all times speak/teach/write only what the Spirit of the Living Lord God
directs and inspires us to set forth.
God’s Word alone is truth!
them through Thy truth: Thy Word is truth.” (John 17:17)
“He turned the sea into dry land. The Psalmist was not only inspired of God’s
Spirit to write this Scripture, he had the recorded annals of Moses himself,
still in existence, to encourage him to SEE the works of God!
stood on the edge of the Red Sea, saw the humanly impossible passage before him
and the children of Israel as they fled from the wicked Pharaoh. Yet, the Lord parted the waters when he
stretched forth his rod, and, therefore, ‘…They went through the flood on
foot…’, after God ‘…turned the sea into dry land…’! Hallelujah!
eye-witness accounts of God’s chosen chroniclers, you and I as Christian
believers can actually SEE the works of God.
We SEE such wonders because we look through the eye of God-given
faith. What a joy to behold such
thou (Moses) up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide
it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the
sea.” (Exodus 14:16)
stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by
a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters
were divided.” (Exodus 14:21)
yourself, beloved Reader: is it any wonder that Moses and the children of
Israel ‘…rejoiced in Him.’? (V.6)
Verse 6. “There
did we rejoice in Him. A much greater miracle
is that men should pass over the bitter sea of this life and cross the river of
mortality that never ceases to run and which swallows up and drowns so many and
still come safe and alive to the land of Eternal promise, and there rejoice in
God Himself, beholding Him face to face; and yet this greater miracle is so
accomplished by God that many pass through this sea as if it were dry land and
cross this river with dry feet.” (Robert
time of global plague, and Covid virus casualties – I personally believe, that
our Holy and Living Lord God is either, sending this divesting plague or, at
least, in His complete Sovereignty over all things – permitting it to ravish
the world in His wrath against the Christ-rejecting nations and those wallowing
in the mire of Sodomy and unbelief. The eyes of our Holy Lord God are, in fact,
beholding the nations, and He is appalled by what His Holy vision sees.
“He ruleth by His power forever. The Lord God Jehovah, Creator of all things, is a Sovereign
Lord God Who rules over all things, people, situations, and circumstances, and
works all things to the tune of His own Sovereign will and purpose. Any other being would not be worthy of
worship, obedience, or praise.
“For by Him
were all things created, that are in Heaven, and that are in earth, visible and
invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers:
all things were created by Him, and for Him: and He is before all things, and by
Him all things consist. And He is the
Head of the Body, the church…” (Colossians
7. “His eyes behold the nations. This should give check to much iniquity. Can a man’s conscience easily and
delightfully swallow that which he is sensible falls under the cognizance of
God, when it is hateful to the eye of His holiness and renders the action
odious to Him?” (Stephen Charnock
Verse 7. “Let
not the rebellious exalt themselves. This is a dire warning to any such rebellious soul, a soul
that might dare to endeavour to shake a puny human fist at the power of the
Almighty Lord God – yet, so many today, in this increasingly apostate and
rebelliously sinful 21st Century, seem to be doing just that! What a doom awaits them! What a come down is looming so inevitably
before them! Pathetic is their unbelief!
know Him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto Me, I will recompense, saith
the Lord. And again, The Lord shall
judge His people. It is a fearful thing
to fall into the hands of the Living God.” (Hebrews 10:30-31)
eyes of God-given faith, we believers can actually SEE the works of the Lord
God! Seeing such wonders, and fully
believing in the power of the Living God – how can we do anything else but be
filled to the full with a Holy joy unspeakable?
Regenerated Christians are the only folk who can hear with our hearts, and SEE
with a ‘sanctified imagination’ – all the wonders of a truly Sovereign Lord
