It Is Undeniable How Brilliant He Is

By: Curtis Ophoven 0 Comments   7/13/2012

Most of the world is in a state of panic because of what is going on. They do not understand why things are getting worse and why all their plans to improve the world are failing before their eyes. 

They cannot put their finger on it, one meeting after another the G-7, the G-20 the leaders of the world move from one crisis to another, yet the financial collapse of the nation’s continues.

The financial collapse of the corrupt banking systems of the world are so far reaching that they are affecting every corner of the earth – so that no one can escape them unscathed.

The panic is because the world is blind to the reality of God and his influence in the world.

“The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.” – 1 Cor. 2:14.

But if you know him, then you can know what he is doing. The panic is not necessary if you consider the undeniable spiritual world that is much larger than the world we live in.  The unfolding events that are just as He said they would is proof the He is alive and He is the sovereign Lord.  

“And so I will show my greatness and my holiness, and I will make myself known in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I am the LORD.'” – Ezekiel 38:23

If you open your eyes to the Spiritual world, the natural world is easy to understand because it follows the rules given by its creator.  If the creator of the world was dead, the natural world would have no reason to follow the rules of its creator.

It Is Undeniable How Brilliant He Is

What I find completely fascinating is that the creator gave us the rules and the exact consequences that would result if we followed the rules and if we did not follow the rules.   

“You will experience all these blessings if you obey the LORD your God.”  - Deut 28:2

“But if you refuse to listen to the LORD your God and do not obey all the commands and laws I am giving you today, all these curses will come and overwhelm you” – Deut 28:15

The details of the rules and consequences are astounding to study and see how completely accurate they are.  Of course, for the most part, the nations of the world ignore the rules to their own dismay then cry about how bad things turn out. 

They elect unrighteous leaders that are unjust and persecute the believers, then wonder why their nations continue to crumble.

“When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan.” – Proverbs 29:2

Can you see how brilliant He is?  He told us exactly how to succeed and how to fail.  Then he predicted exactly how we would respond and he even detailed how the history of the world would unfold, right in the book of Daniel he explains how each world empire would rise and fall.

To the letter, each world empire has risen and fallen.  Do you understand how brilliant He is?

Isaiah 45:20-21 tells us that one day all the nations of the world gather together and worship false gods that cannot save. They will make declarations against the Lord and counsel together in rage against him.  All of this the Lord has already predicted long ago, because he knew the world would refuse to acknowledge the Kingship of his Son.  But because he is on the throne, he holds the future and therefore it is inevitable that the nations of the world will make war against him.  

"Gather together and come; assemble, you fugitives from the nations. Ignorant are those who carry about idols of wood, who pray to gods that cannot save. Declare what is to be, present it— let them take counsel together. Who foretold this long ago, who declared it from the distant past? Was it not I, the LORD? And there is no God apart from me, a righteous God and a Savior; there is none but me." - Isaiah 45:20-21

Scripture has more details about some periods than others and a large number of details are given surrounding the two most important events in history, the first coming of Christ and the second coming of Christ.

Witness His Glory

As we approach the second coming of Christ, we are experiencing a great number of prophecies unfolding making this one of the best times in all of history to be alive and witness the glory of the Lord.

The growing misery of the nations of the world is well documents in Matthew, Revelations, Ezekiel, Daniel and others.

All this is public knowledge and available to the world, just as Christ say it would be.

“And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations” – Matthew 24:14

Yet, the nations of the world refuse to believe in the Son of God.  

What is happening to the global financial system can be easily explained. If you take a look at what the creator said, it is astonishing. 

The books of Daniel, Revelations and Ezekiel tell us how the world power will shift and the nations will be in chaos and the global economy will collapse as the last world empire rises. The nations that rise to power at that time will be the leaders when Christ returns. - Daniel 2:44 

If you want to get a handle on what is going on, the first step is to believe in the Son of God (John 3:16) so that he can remove your blindness to what you cannot see.  The second step is to ask him for understanding and the third step is to make time to study what he has so plainly revealed.

Those that are paying attention to what God is doing have a compelling advantage which will make them easy to spot because they are the only one’s not panicking over the complete confusion and collapsing world.  

Rather then being confused, those that believe in him understand that He is in complete control.  They have studied his word, heard his voice and know that no one can snatch them out of his hand.

"My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand." - John 10:27-28

Here is a music video of Mat Kearney's hit song, "Undeniable" - because it is undeniable how brilliant He is.

God Is Great, God Is Good: Why Believing in God Is Reasonable and Responsible

This book answers the contemporary complaints against belief in God which are addressed with intellectual passion and rigor by some of the most astute theological and philosophical minds in alive today. Atheism is no longer simply about `not believing' in a God or an intelligent designer. They have become angry and intolerant at anyone that believes in God. The evidence of creation and the daily worship of those that love God is a constant grind on the soul of those that reject the reality of God. Just as the scripture tells us, there is no rest for the soul of man that rejects God. Yet Christianity contains all the answers and reveals that God is indeed Good and Great are his works.

How Christianity Made the Modern World

The books shows how through century after century, Bible-believing Christians put their faith into action to help those who were unable to help themselves. In an age where Christians are often marginalized and where secular reporters with their warped anti-Christ agenda decry much of what our forefather did or even deny the West's Christian heritage, then this book is refreshing, life-giving and invigorating rain from heaven, soaked in facts, history, testimony and personal observation in country after country and place after place. Christianity is truly responsible for the success of the modern world.

The Rage Against God

Peter Hitchens, brother of prominent atheist Christopher Hitchens, chronicles his personal journey through disbelief into a committed Christian faith. This is intellectual look at why atheistism is an intellectual failure. In his new book Peter tells his personal story of how he has been a witness to the ideas of atheism in the Soviet Union, which has resulted in untold death and destruction. Now he sees the same death grip coming to Great Britain, his home land, as the nation continues to turn from God. Peter’s experience that led him to faith is a testimony to what the scriptures tell us. “The fear of the LORD adds length to life, but the years of the wicked are cut short. “ - Proverbs 10:27

Counterfeit Gods: The Empty Promises of Money, Sex, and Power, and the Only Hope that Matters

In Counterfeit Gods he tells of Abraham and Isaac, Jacob and Esau, Jonah and Zacchaeus. Each one of these characters and the stories of their lives are used to teach the reader about the prevalence of idolatry in the Bible and in the human heart. "The human heart takes good things like a successful career, love, material possessions, even family, and turns them into ultimate things. Our hearts deify them as the center of our lives, because, we think, they can give us significance and security, safety and fulfillment, if we attain them." An idol is; "anything more important to you than God, anything that absorbs your heart and imagination more than God, anything you seek to give you what only God can give."
