Keep in Step

A Song:
Keep in step, keep in step
With the Lord your God

Follow hard

Not by power
Nor by might
But by His Spirit –Zec 4:6
Follow behind –Phil 4:13

Keep in step, keep in step
With the Lord your God  –Gal 5:25
Keep in step, keep in step
Follow hard Ps 63:8

Psalm 91:1-2, 4 NLT … Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
This I declare about the Lord: “He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; He is my God, and I trust Him”.

He will cover you with His feathers. He will shelter you with His wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.

Trust in the Lord beneath His outstretched wings
Abide –
Ps 91:1
In the shelter of the Most High
Your place of refuge, protection and safety
Be covered with His feathers
His comfort, mercy and steadfast love –
Ps 36:7
His sweet rest
In the shadow

Found in Christ alone. –
Is 32:2

Isaiah 32:1-2 AMPC … Behold, a King will reign in righteousness, and princes will rule with justice. 2 And each one of them shall be like a hiding place from the wind and a shelter from the storm, like streams of water in a dry place, like the shade{In the shadow} of a great rock in a weary land [to those who turn to them].

Isaiah 26:4 AMPC … So trust in the Lord (commit yourself to Him, lean on Him, hope confidently in Him) forever; for the Lord God is an everlasting Rock [the Rock of Ages].

Isaiah 61:10-11I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God. For He has clothed me with garments of salvation, He has wrapped me with a robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. 11 For as the earth brings forth its bud, and as a garden cascades with blossoms, so the Sovereign LORD will bring righteousness into full bloom and praise to be flowering before all the nations.

The flowering of praise
The flowering of truth -1Co 13:6
A cascade of blossoms released

Jesus Christ – The Almighty

December 5, 2016

Revelation 1:7-8 NKJV … Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen.
8 “I AM the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.

Who is speaking in verse 8? Who was pierced in verse 7? Who is coming?

Revelation 22:12-13 NKJV … “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”

Revelation 22:20-21 NKJV … He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.Amen.

***

Isaiah 9:6 NKJV … For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Who is this Child? this Son?
=> Mighty God, Everlasting Father …

Isaiah 10:20-21 NKJV … And it shall come to pass in that day that the remnant of Israel, and such as have escaped of the house of Jacob, will never again depend on him who defeated them, but will depend on the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.
21 The remnant will return, the remnant of Jacob, to the Mighty God.

Who does Jesus say He is?

John 8:56-58 NKJV … Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad.”
57 Then the Jews said to Him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?”
58 Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”

From NetBible Jn 8:58

  • * I AM! is an explicit claim to deity referring to Exodus 3:14:  it seems clear that this is the case here (as the response of the Jewish authorities in the following verse shows Jn 8:59) => Jesus’ Jewish listeners understood his claim to deity by applying the “I AM” name to himself, rejected it, and picked up stones to throw at him for what they considered blasphemy.
