The Glory of God

glory-1

 

 

First before I get into my thoughts and God’s word about this incredible topic of the Glory of God I want to say that my words are PITIFUL!!! Yes…really so pitiful that I almost don’t want to write this because of What Gods’ glory means. Compared to where He is and who He is what can I truly say? I’m glad I’m typing this because my lip can do His glorious majesty no justice!

 

Exodus 33:18,21-22 Then Moses said, “I pray You, show me Your glory!” Then God answered Moses:

But He said, “You cannot see My face, for no man can see Me and live!” 21 Then the Lord said, “Behold, there is a place by Me, and you shall stand there on the rock; 22 and it will come about, while My glory is passing by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by.glory of God 3

God…”show me your glory” should be the prayers of us all! Why? Because when you have experienced the glory of God it will motivate you to want more of God. It will also motivate you to want others to see Gods glory through your life. Why else would God reveal any of His glory with us?

There are different aspects of God’s glory so let’s break it down:

  1. There’s His physical Glory or glory from His presence. Revelation 21:21-23   And I saw no temple in the city, for its temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb. 23 And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb.
  2. There is the glory that comes from what has been done as a result of His children’s obedience and living a righteous life. Ephesian 2:10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
  3.  There’s the glory that comes from Gods creativity i.e. the universe, planets, and stars. Isaiah 6:3 And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.”  
  4. There is Glory that comes from God blessing His children with victories, miracles and answered prayers. John 11:4 When he heard this, Jesus said, “This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God’s glory so that God’s Son may be glorified through it.”
  5. There is glory that can give you strength when you are going through the absolute worst situation. Stephen is getting ready to be murdered.   Act 7:55 But being full of the Holy Spirit, he gazed intently into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God;

 

God gets the glory for everything good and holy that emanates from Him and He gets all the glory for all good things on this earth! No one else is responsible for goodness. Only God has that kind of power and is power.

The word glory according to the dictionary means brilliance, radiance, honor, renowned, highly praiseworthy, fame, admiration or someone impressive. All of these terms don’t come anywhere close to describing God’s glory.

God’s glory is His perfection and His holiness. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, Romans 3:23 We fall short now because we can’t be 100% holy and perfect. This can only happen when we make the transition to heaven. In fact we will be in it!glory of God 4

God’s glory cannot be contained. The more I speak about this the more I feel I falling short.

As we learn more about the attributes of God such as His glory we will grow to know Him more. We always have to work on knowing Him because we can’t see Him. So ponder about the Glory of God.

Today I challenge you to pray the Moses pray Exodus 33:18,21-22 Then Moses said, “I pray You, show me Your glory!” I pray that you experience the “Glory of God”!!!!!

The mighty deeds of God

Leave a comment

good-deeds

 

In the book of acts the disciples started speaking in other tongues and people heard them saying this in their own language….”we hear them in our own tongues speaking of the mighty deeds of God. “Acts 2:10

What are the mighty deeds of God?

Psalms 77:11-15 I will call to mind the deeds of the Lord; I will remember your wonders of old. 12 I will meditate on all your work, and muse on your mighty deeds. 13 Your way, O God, is holy. What god is so great as our God? 14 You are the God who works wonders; you have displayed your might among the peoples. 15 With your strong arm you redeemed your people, the descendants of Jacob and Joseph. Selah

Some old mighty “deeds of God” are the creation, the deliverance of the Jewish people out of Egypt, the making of a man and a woman, the restoration of Jobs family and wealth, the unique birth of Jesus Christ, the many miracle signs and wonder that Jesus did, the resurrection of Jesus Christ and many others.good-deeds-2

Some new mighty “deeds of God” is God saving my soul, giving me a wonderful God-fearing husband, all my premature children’s lives being saved from death, healing my son from the severe effects from brain damage/ cerebral palsy, healing me from cancer, and many more miracles and answered prayer in my life.

I’m sharing this to say that we should all be sharing the mighty deeds of God old and new. Of all the things that could have been said through these men in the book of Acts…the power of the Holy Spirit interpreted their language and declared the mighty “deeds of God”. This is called…testifying….something we Christians should be doing about our Father God all the time to each other, to strangers, co-workers, friends and family.

Are you depressed today?…Read this!

depression

 

Many people will suffer from depression at some point in their lives. You might have this problem today. It happens. God addresses this in the bible. Here are 3 versions of the same scripture:

2 Corinthians 7:6 But God, who comforts the depressed, comforted us by the coming of Titus; NASB

2 Corinthians 7:6 But God, who comforts the downcast, comforted us by the coming of Titus, NIV

2 Corinthians 7:6 Nevertheless God, that comforteth those that are cast down, comforted us by the coming of Titus; KJV

The big take away here is… “But God!” Who will comfort you! God will also bring people into your life to be a blessing to you. This may be medical help or a good friend. I was healed of depression in 1983 and looking back on my experiences God did provide both medical help and many good friends and family that helped me during those difficult years.depression-1

David in the bible cried out to God for help when he was in emotional despair. Psalms 43:5 Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why are you disturbed within me? Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him, The help of my countenance and my God. (NASB) Let this be your prayer also.

More comforting help are these next 2 scriptures verses:

2 Corinthians 6:16… “I will dwell in them and walk among them;… God indwells us Christians and He is here with us! We are not alone in this. We may feel like it sometimes but the bible says God is in us and with us.

2 Corinthians 6:18 And I will be a father to you, And you shall be sons and daughters to Me, “Says the Lord Almighty. I am Gods daughter. My Father God loves me. I trust my Father God to watch over me. With His help I know that I can hold on through my suffering.

This scripture verse really helps me to hold on through these trials.  One day in my future I will never shed another tear!!   Revelation 21:4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” My troubles will not last always! There will be rest for my weary soul! I know I can hang in there!

Psalms 34:18 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

God has done this wonderful mending in my life many many times! He will do it for you! Be encouraged not only from my mere words but with the words of God. God’s words have power and are life-giving and life changing!

God please bless all those who need this word today. God please heal the broken-hearted and those who are crushed in their spirit. Lord… some have struggled their whole lives with depression and some are depressed because of going through some hard difficulties. I know you care so much about what they are going through. Please strengthen them and lift up their countenance. Thank you for taking care of them and thank you for in advance for healing their mind and emotions. I ask these things in Jesus name…amen.

I care about what you’re going through.  I’m here for you!  I know it’s hard right now.  I have faced some challenging things myself.  I called out to my Father and He strengthened me.  He will do the same for you!  All my love, Your brother… Jesus

I’m truly grateful for you!!! I had not considered myself a writer in 2011 when I first starting writing my blog. I really didn’t think anybody would be reading them. I was wrong and I have gained many blog friends over the years. I would like to give a shout out to a few of these long time and faithful friends…thanks-to-all-last

Thank you all who take the time to read my blogs. I pray and take a lot of time to share with you what the Holy Spirit gives me. Sometimes it’s straight from my deep personal prayer with the Lord. My blogs have helped me the most because of all the studying just to write one. I’m learning a lot too.

So many have written to me about their own experiences and I’m so blessed to read that. I pray that I can continue to be of service to all of you for the growth for the kingdom of God.

God bless every one of you in Jesus name!

In the Lord’s service,

These are my own thoughts on the enemy of our soul. I feel there is way too much credit and thoughts given to the devil and his demons. Yes… they are powerful enemy’s but they ain’t all that! God created lucifer/the devil and God used him for His purposes for our benefit. satan’s demise was preordained from the beginning of God’s plan for our redemption. The devil can only have but so much affect over our lives because of God’s plan for us and because of Jesus Christ. Well that’s only if you’re God’s child because if you’re not…guess who your daddy is? John 8:44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires.

God has a whole big well thought out plan for humanity. His plan was to create human beings, redeem them and reclaim every person for His kingdom. In His whole big plan for us satan is a small part compared to God’s entire plan. satan is nothing but a tool!!!! This tool will be destroyed one day soon!!! He’s tried to get people to see him as this big, powerful, scary creature. He tries to get us to focus on him by pointing out His effort in attacking us and we wind up rebuking him all day long. He wants us to worship him in such a way that we do it by talking about him all the time not realizing that we are giving him too much attention.

I will be smart and wise and know how to deal with him. I know he’s here and I know that he can be dangerous but I will NOT focus on him because that is giving him the attention he desires from me.jesus-is-the-best-1

God has given us the tools and weapons to deal with the enemy and Jesus demonstrated how to put satan in his place with the word. Jesus dealt with satan when he was directly confronted by him.   Jesus was well aware of the devils presence but didn’t go looking for the enemy nor did He constantly point him out. He did spend a lot of time talking with His Father.  Jesus spent more time casting all His care on His Father in prayer.

My whole point of today’s blog is to let you know that God preordained to used satan’s evil, lying, deceitful booty for us!!!!! He is only a PART of a plan for our benefit!! Focus on God…focus on Jesus…focus on the Holy Spirit! Be wise, prayerful, smart, knowledgeable and obedient in the things of God. Quit thinking the devil is all that. God gave us power and a sound mind and no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the LORD. Isaiah 54:17

Revelation 20:10 And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Ezekiel 28:18 – 19 All the nations who knew you are appalled at you; you have come to a horrible end and will be no more.'”

God has a plan to get satan out of your life forever!!!!! He will never bother you again! You will be free from any more suffering forever! The devil ain’t all that and stop acting like he is! Have 100% faith in God’s whole plan for your life!!!!!!!!!!!

Faux Home Going Service for Tanya Maria Nemley

Sunrise July 1952 – Sunset 20xx

 

Obituary

Tanya was born in NYC and moved with her parents Juanita and Elijah Mckelvin from the Bronx to Westbury. After High school she married and had her first daughter Crystal. After getting divorced from her first husband Tanya  married her 2nd husband James Nemley in 1975 and over time 5 more children arrived. Tanya had many gifts and talents which included cooking and singing.

Tanya became a Christian watching Rev. Billy Graham when she was about 12 but in 1984 she became a committed Christian and dedicated the rest of her life to serving the Lord.

In lieu of a long formal obituary she has chosen herself to tell you her final words.

“Dear family, friends, and whosoever,

In 1984 I became a committed Christian and I decided to put God first and trust Him for everything in my life. 1 Peter 5:7 became my guide for everything that went on in my life. Another decision I made was to find out everything I could about God. I searched the bible like a mad woman for every scrap of info on who this being was that loved me so much. When I realized that the Holy Spirit lived inside of me and knew everything about Father God, I bugged Him like mad for information. I used to pray for about 8 hours a day every single day for years and years. God gave me visions and allowed me to experience many unique things with Him. For the rest of my life I came to know and love God so very deeply.

Because of my relationship with Him and the security and love that I constantly got from Him I wanted this for everyone. I had gotten to the point that I shared Jesus by way of a pamphlet I wrote with almost everyone I’d come into contact with every day.

I have figured out something very special about Father God that I want you to know. Our Father God has a whole big very thought out plan for every human being that will ever live and it is all about His love for us. God loves us so much and all He wants is our gratefulness, love and devotion to Him. This supernatural powerful holy and majestic being can adopt us into His family if we repent of our sin and believe in His Son. He’s also promised us an incredible eternal life with Him forever.

Stop everything you’re doing and reassess the whole focus and purpose of your life.

  1. Do you really know God intimately?
  2. Is God above everything in your life?
  3. Do you love God like you have lost your mind?

Your answer has to be yes to all three questions because one just won’t do! I’m not special because of my relationship with God. He’s available to everyone but you’ve got to WANT to know HIM. He will reward you with so much in this lifetime that it would be too long to list what He will do for you here. Two things that I had in abundance in my life was grace and peace. There are 3 ways to get to know more of God. Through the bible, by talking to God and by the power of the Holy Spirit. This is all possible because of Jesus Christ. We are only on this planet for a brief time. This world is not all that! One day you WILL have to leave all your stuff and go to either heaven or hell! People always say this about those who die…”oh he’s in a better place”. REALLY?  Repent and ask Jesus for forgiveness! This is the key to eternal life in heaven with God!

You don’t need to know what I did with my life!…You need to know what Jesus did with His life so that you can get a life…(An eternal one!).

My life was all about Jesus and now I’m with Him. I not only want you to be with me here in heaven one day… but I want you to be blessed on earth now! Show God just how grateful you are for all that He’s done for you. Please tell others about Jesus! See you soon!

Finished the race…Tanya”.

Tanya is survived by her husband James, her 6 children, Crystal, Joya, April, Joshua, Noah, Marie, her Granddaughter Olivia, her sister Christie and Son in law Sean.

 

The family of Tanya Maria Nemley deeply appreciate and gratefully acknowledge your kind expressions of sympathy.  We ask you to honor her request to put God first in your life.                                                         The Nemley Family

What is the difference between loving God and worshipping God?

Leave a comment

love-between

 

Right now one of the ways I can worship God through my service and obedience to Him. When I get to heaven I will worship Him before His throne. I see myself in heaven as face down before Him in His holiness and majesty. I’m sure it will be much more involved and powerful than my little human mind can explain here.

Right now I can love Him and get up close and personal with Him. Uniquely…I have the Holy Spirit living inside me and this gives me an advantage in being one with God and the ability to know Him. I’m sure my relationship with God will be a billion percent closer in heaven…but I’m thankful for this opportunity that I have now to know Him so personally now. I take full advantage of this too.

I interact with God on a few different levels which I will share with you:

  1. I pray generally and formally every morning with my husband. We thank Father God for all that He did for us yesterday, we bring up prayer request for ourselves, our family and others. And lastly we thank Him for what He will do and we give Him praise and honor.
  2. I talk to God throughout my day about everything. He’s a part of my daily and nightly life.
  3. I get into a quiet and private place (prayer closet) and go very deep in an intimate way until I get to a place of being consumed by His presence. In this place… it’s not about stuff, issues, troubles or life…it’s all about Him. Many times it’s so deep that I don’t want to be here on earth because…why would I after feeling His love in a supernatural way by the power of the Holy Spirit. What drives me back into reality is the thought of serving Him by telling others about Him. This kind of prayer time also helps my music ministry because I try to help others feel what I feel in my prayer closet because of the anointing of the Holy Spirit through my song.

This is how I feel about you God!

 

 

I feel there is a difference in loving God and worshipping God. I have been involved in many times of powerful worship where it makes you fall down on your knees and bow before Father God in total admiration to His majesty. Sensing God’s holiness, power and glory will do that to you. God deserves this because of who He is!

Jesus said the greatest commandment is to “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ Matthew 22:38 He didn’t say worship the Lord God….but if you love God like crazy that will make you want to worship God like that! Loving God = worship!

So what does this all mean for you? A close walk with Father God! It means the most abundant life with all the fullness of God that following Jesus and worshipping the one true God can afford you!
