BIBLE CHARACTERS

GOD THE FATHER

LESSON 7

WE BEGIN

Ps 19:1            "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth His handiwork!"

 

Comment        Much of the whole of mankind take for granted, the Sun ‑ Moon ‑ Stars, and never come to the understanding that they are created by God for Signs ‑ Seasons ‑ Days ‑ Years.

 

Gen 1:14         "…And let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years."

 

Comment        These heavenly bodies actually rule the world, even our very lives!  If they didn't function, time would stand still.

 

Ps 19:2            "Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge."

 

Ps 19:3            "There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard!"

 

Comment        Day after day the Heavens are speaking to the nations without words, of His glory and knowledge.  There is one language that any nation can understand ‑ "The language of the heavens!"

 

A FEW OF THESE SIGNS

                        1)   HIS POWER ‑ Thunder and lightning.

                        2)   CLOUDS ‑ Bring rain from heaven on the just and unjust.

      ‑ Led the Children of Israel out of Egypt.

      ‑ Speaks out of a cloud at the River Jordan.

      ‑ Speaks out of a cloud at the Mount of Transfiguration.

      ‑ Received up to Heaven in the clouds.

      ‑ Returning in the clouds with power and great glory.

 

SIGN THAT HE WILL LISTEN TO THE VOICE OF MAN

Josh 10:12‑14 Sun and moon stand thou still.  The sun stood still for a whole day.

 

Josh 10:14      “…There was no day like that before it or after it, that the Lord hearkened unto the voice of man…”

 

Matt 2:2           The Wise Men, "…We have seen His star in the east..."  Sign that the Saviour was born, according to the prophets.

 

SIGNS OF COMING JUDGEMENT ‑ NOAH'S DAY

Gen 7:11         "…The fountains of the great deep (were) broken up, (Earthquakes) and the windows of heaven were opened."
