That’s My King!

For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance

: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures
1 Corinthians 15:3-4

The Job Experience

“The Job Experience”
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OpO7ILkVhN8

 

And the cycle goes again…

Typical story of
A good man,
Giving God glory.

He’s a God fearing man,
Perfect husband,
Excellent pops
and he finally received that raise…
Cash in the bank!

Yeah, they were saving up.
He and his wifey been fussing,
It’s time for making up.
The recessions been digging in you,
It’s been really rough,
But he believes his change is here to stay.

It was a Thursday night, April first.
He’s sitting there in traffic on his way home from work.
He checks his voicemail it’s his mother.
She’s got multiple lumps in her breast and they hurt.
She wants him to pray that it’s not cancerous.
Broke the news to your daddy and he’s takin it the worst.
Cause honestly she knew for many years,
But she didn’t want the family to panic over her,
So he prays:
“God save her, Lord I know that you are able,
I’m lifting up my heart to You in prayer,
You’re a Healer You’re the Savior, So save her,”

So he goes to call the boo
to tell her all that happened and to let her know the news.
It’s looking like it’s 6: 22.
She should be whipping up the dinner,
Got the kiddies home from school,
But every time he calls it goes straight to her voice mail
“Just leave your number,
And I’ll get right back to you”.
He thinks nothing of it and he cruises
the rest of the way trying to clear his mind.

He pulls into the house,
He’s so unfocused.
Walks right in he’s wondering “why was the front door wide open? “
Goes to the living room,
There’s two men holding
guns to his family’s face: his wife,
His youngest and his oldest.
They yelling “get the money,
Hit the floor man! “
He pulls the money out he kneels down and says,
“Just go, man! “
The robber kneels down to get the dough and
forgets his fingers on the trigger
And he accidentally blows and
[gunshot]

Jesus, can You even see us?
I gave You all of me because I thought You could protect us,
Lead us and direct us.
But you can’t even keep us safe from violence and diseases,
I’m really wanting to believe in You,
But I need a reason to trust You after this one…

Because You let me down, because You let me down…

Then God says:

I am the Lord your God,
There’s majesty and splendor round about Me.
It’s very sad, but true,
That very often your faith fails you and you doubt Me.
Woe oh oh.
But I’m so sovereign and above,
I give you power to believe you’re all in control,
But I’m SUPER!
And I’m set to show Myself so strong in a realm of the living that leaves the whole world In a stupor.

By the way I caused the bullet shot to ricochet right back into the shooter!
[Gasps]

 †

 He will keep the feet of his faithful servants, but the wicked will be silenced in the place of darkness. It is not by strength that one prevails; Those who contend with the Lord will be shattered
1 Samuel 2:9

 

Our God Is In The Heavens

Shai Linne Ft God’s Servant

Our God Is In The Heavens
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sV3136cv3HU

Chorus
Our God is in the heavens
He does whatever He pleases!

(repeat)

Verse 1 (Shai Linne)
The Sovereign LORD, Great I am recognize the name!
He’s always on top of His game, a Lion that simply cannot be tamed
And no, He is not restrained at all- nobody can stop His reign
So why do the nations rage and all of the peoples plot in vain?
Their sin and offense is against His excellence and they’re not ashamed
As though He’s lacking the power to shackle them now in the hottest flames
And so they cock and aim- the target? His cosmic reign
That’s like a kid with a super soaker trying to conquer Spain!
Man thinks he’s a pugilist, trying to ball up his puny fist
At the LORD, who is ruling this
What’s amusing is God just laughs, like “Who is this”?
Stupid kids who persist in foolishness
It’s only by God’s power you exist
Now you declare war on the LORD
When before you were born, He formed you in the uterus?
Look- Our God is in the heavens and He does all that He pleases
He’s established His King in Zion and His name is Jesus!

Chorus


Our God is in the heavens
He does whatever He pleases!

(repeat)

Verse 2 (God’s Servant)
Our God is up in the heavens and the seat at His right hand
That’s given to rule and reign is where Jesus the Christ lands
And He sits preeminent, He originates the right stance
Impossible for Him to fail, no there’s not even a slight chance
Constructor and Conductor, leaving the men amazed and saying
“What manner of man is this that even the winds and waves obey Him?”
From His purpose of election, and to birth, to our perfection
He has ordained it and He decrees and works by His direction
He never will suffer defeat, He’s precisely the Truth and the Life and the Way
So even when He died, they never took His life but He gave His life away
To see when they crucified Him, nobody had imagined it
Not only was a part of the plan to save but the climax of it
He’s gonna get glory, we’re created to be His instruments
His reign’s inexhaustible- His rule is truly infinite

Chorus


Our God is in the heavens
He does whatever He pleases!

(repeat)

Verse 3 (Shai Linne)
The perfections of God are not affected at all by human opinion
Everything in the universe is under His control and His rule and dominion
And there’s nothing in the world that could ever could come to pass at last unless He first decreed it
If we dive in His word we can read it, see all of His purposes completed
And as hard as it seems, the heart of the king is a stream of water in His Hands
With discernment you’ll see God turns it where He’s determined according to His plans
You gotta get a focused lens to truly understand where His control extends
And I know that this offends, but the truth is the grossest sins serve His ultimate ends
You might not hear it from your favorite pastor
But He made the wicked for the day of disaster
Sinners unacquainted with the way of the Master
We have to explain what is plain in the chapters
He’s sovereign over creation and sovereign over salvation
Including reprobation, regeneration
I wouldn’t want to say this if it wasn’t based in His revelation
It’s kind of stunning, men ignore His throne, the creature’s lost it
The time is coming when the Lord alone will be exalted

Chorus


Our God is in the heavens
He does whatever He pleases!

 

 


Our God is in heaven; he does whatever pleases him
Psalm 115:3

The Law of Identity

In logic, the law of identity is the first of the three classical laws of thought. It states that: “each thing is the same with itself and different from another”

Eg. ‘A’ is ‘A’ and not ‘~A’

By this it meant that each thing (be it universal or particular) is composed of its own unique set of characteristics, qualities or features. In ancient Greek this is called it’s essence. Consequently, things that have the same essence are the same thing, while things that have different essences are different things. In it symbolic representation: (A is A), the first element of the proposition represents the subject (thing) and the second element, the predicate (it’s essence) with the copula “is” signifying the relation of identity.

Further, since a definition is an expression of the essence of that thing with which the linguistic term is associated, it follows that it is through its definition that the identity of a thing is established.

E.g “A Lawyer is a person qualified to practice law”

The subject (lawyer) and the predicate (person qualified and authorized to practice law) are declared to be one and the same thing (identical).

Consequently, the Law of Identity prohibits us from rightfully calling anything other than “a person qualified and authorized to practice law” a “lawyer”

OLD TESTAMENT
God said to Moses, I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: “I AM has sent me to you”
Exodus 3:14

 

NEW TESTAMENT
“Very truly I tell you,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am!”
John 8:58

God is Eternal
(No beginning & no end)

God is Omniscient
(Having complete or unlimited knowledge)

God is Immutable
(Unchanging; always the same)



Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”
John 14:6

He either is,
or is not,
but the argument that we’re both right while holding opposing views, is just plain nonsense.

 

Then those who were in the boat worshipped him, saying “truly you are the Son of God”
Matthew 14:33

Then the man said, “Lord, I believe,” and he worshipped him

John 9:38

Then they worshipped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy

Luke 24:52

Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me

Matthew 15:25

God Bless

 

BIblical Spiritual Truth – Election

Shai Linne ft Willie Will
“Election”
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzYJvkgy4Gs

 

(Willie Will)
Peep it son, no need to run from the truth
We need to come to understand Ephesians 1
We see in love the Father predestined
We seem to have a problem with the doctrine of election
We keep stressin’ and leave guessin’ leadin’ to depression
Because it’s God’s love we question
Well sit back and take a deep breath in, and exhale, let’s set sail, the word of God is refreshin’
Let’s be real with it,
the Bible obviously talks about predestination so we gotta deal with it
I’ll be a fake attorney by His grace and mercy
And present my case so let’s take a journey for the sake of learning
First turn toRomans 8:28-30
Zoomin’ in on verse 29, read the first line
“Those whom He foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to
the image of His Son”- Exhibit #1
People try to use an argument lacking common sense
Concerning the foreknowledge of God thinking the logic fits
Dudes are saying He looked out into the future ages
With illumination seeing all that would choose salvation
And those men were chosen by God because they chose Him
But that’s not what the passage has spoken
It says those He foreknew He predestined
If he foreknew everybody, is everybody predestined?
Is everyone His object of affection?
If so, then what’s the point of the doctrine of election?
It’s spiritual but let me make it plain so u see the miracle and praise His Name instead of taking His grace in vain
It isn’t complicated, we all evaded the God that made us and traded in His truth for a lie
(John 3:18)
Worshiping what God created more than God who is glorified
Corroborated our death, our lives are an abomination
But if the Father’s aim is to bestow mercy
Then it’s not to say that He was obligated but that God is gracious
As God’s enemies we deserve to be crushed
We’re dirty enough to be eternally cursed and turned into dust
And if he did it He would be perfectly just to murder me but
He decided to show mercy to us
I didn’t choose God, God chose me
Gave me a new heart and it wasn’t because I was holy
(Ezekiel 36:25-28)
But if I chose G-O-D then God owes me, the only reason
I first walked thru them church doors is
Psalm 65 verse 4, why do I know God?
Matthew 11:27 says it best and
Those that have been predestined keep pressin’
It’s a deep message, I only see blessin’ in election
I’ma see the blessin’, yo it’s not even a question
How God in His perfection wrote the doctrine of election

(Shai Linne)

God in His perfection wrote the doctrine of election
Cause He’s sovereign, there’s no question and that got some people stressin’
But no option but election can account for our protection
Godly direction or perfected bodily resurrection, yo!
Don’t let the thinking of modern men fool ya
God does what He wants- that’s what it means to be Sovereign Ruler
It’s deep but not complicated- with complete confidence I’ll state it:
Peep it- it’s how God has always operated
He’s the greatest, fam- His amazing plan made His hand
Save the man Abraham from a pagan land (Genesis 12:1-9)
Who can argue with the people that God chooses?
Israel and not Egypt,
(Deutoronomy 7:7-9)

Peter and not Judas (Acts 15:7)
Humanly speaking, it should have been Saul and not David
The inheritance should have been Esau’s and not Jacob’s
(Deutoronomy 21:15-17)(Psalm 135:4)
The truth it speaks brightly so you can see rightly
A huge, mighty God who chooses the least likely
Still some contest it as a phony doctrine
But if we’re really dead in sin, predestination is the only option
With reservations they fume inside
There’s hesitation because it’s devastating to human pride
This truth is the sober kind that you’re prone to find
In passages like
Romans 9– it’s so divine it’ll blow your mind
We are the clay and we’ve been formed by the Potter
(Jeremiah 18:1-10)
None can come to the Son unless they’re drawn by the Father
“But God draws everybody” That’s what some cats say
It can’t be that way because all who are drawn are raised on the last day
(John 6:40)
Because of original sin and all of our despicable deadness within
Election must be unconditional then
Some people say that we were drowning in the ocean
Barely floating until God threw us the rope then
Our free will helped us as we groped
Our faith is the hand that grabbed the rope and God put us back in the boat
Nope! Without apology I deny that analogy
Reality- we were dead at the bottom of the sea
I was a swollen corpse with hope no more
Until Jehovah the LORD dove from the shore to the ocean floor
(Ephesians 2:5)
Yeah, I was a corpse and I smelled like it
I’ll keep it simple, why did God choose me? Because He felt like it!
He brought me out, not an act of my volition
Breathed life into my lungs and didn’t ask for my permission
Throughout the Bible there’s major examples of this
Pages of passages like the raising of Lazarus
(John 11:38-44)
Rather than debating the Master’s gift
We should be happily praising His magnanimous saving of savages
It’s time we see God’s sovereignty and His primacy
His holy dynasty running things by divine decree
Why does He choose some and not others to see Jesus?
Our God is in the heavens- He does whatever He pleases

 

 If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you of heavenly things?
John 3:12
