Open Heavens 11 September 2018 Bible Reading – Job 38:3-12

3 Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.

4 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.

5 Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?

6 Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;

7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

8 Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?

9 When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it,

10 And brake up for it my decreed place, and set bars and doors,

11 And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?

12 Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days; and caused the dayspring to know his place;

Bible in One Year – Proverbs 5-8, Mark 6:7-29 – Open Heaven 11 September 2018 

Message: A name is not just a label; more importantly, it is an identity. Names are very important to God, and this is why it is important to search the Scriptures to discover more about God’s identity through His Names.

Names are dear to God’s heart. In Revelation 1:8, He Himself revealed some of his Names to us, saying

“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord , which is and which was and which is to come, the Almighty.”

Furthermore, in God’s dialogue with Job in Job chapter 38, He asked him some frightening questions which reveal that he is the Alpha and the Omega. It goes without saying that He is the one who made the mountains, the oceans and all the other big and small things we see in nature.

We also understand that He is older than the oldest, because by Him were all things created. He saw the beginning of everything on earth, good and bad, and He will also see their end because He is the Alpha and Omega in Jesus’ Name.

In 1 Samuel 1:3, the Almighty is called the Lord of host. In the past, I used to think this meant that He is the Lord of the host of heaven, but recently, He let me know that ‘Lord of Hosts’ means the Lord of all hosts, whether in heaven, hell, the earth, the seas, underneath the earth, and even other galaxies in the universe.

Nobody can oppress His children because one command from Him can make life so unbearable for even the greatest king on earth. If you don’t believe me, ask Pharaoh (Exodus 5-11).

According to Proverbs 21:1, my God has the heart of kings in His hands, and He turns their hearts wherever He pleases. He has control over the commanders-in-chief of all armed forces, then He can also direct the armed forces of different nations as He pleases.

Isaiah 9:6 calls Him the Prince of Peace. The first thing a person experiences after giving his or her life to Christ is peace, because the Prince of Peace now lives within. My God can calm any storm and I mean any storm. He calmed several storms when He was here on earth (Mark 4:39,Matthew 14:24-32), and there is no storm in your life that He cannot calm.

Some years ago, I was invited to speak at a United Nations Summit, and I told the delegates there that it was a good thing that they were all trying to solve the problems of war around the world.

I let them know though that if they really wanted peace, the only way they could get it was if they involved the Prince of Peace. In this world of war and turbulence, you can have peace if you surrender to Him indeed. May the peace of the Lord continually be with you in Jesus’ Name
