Methods and Message of the Maker
Changing Methods and the Eternal Message of an Unchanging Maker

"God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;.."

Is it not amazing to consider the different ways God speaks and communicates to this world? If you study Gods dealing with man, you will find he rarely used the same method twice. In the Miracles of Jesus, he never duplicated what he had done before in the same method. He was confronted with the same need many times, but he seemed to reach into the creativity of the Divine to leave a lesson for us to learn.

Though his methods vary, the message of God to humanity has not changed. The Lord has been giving clear signs and confirmations to the things he values. God understands the power of perception. He has gone to great lengths to impress on humanity some basic principles of his nature and desires. Why would God go to such a great length to manifest the divine in humanity for a plan that would not finally culminate for hundreds and thousands of years? I say it is because he wants us to get a picture and perception of his nature. This picture and perception can change the way we see and how we live our lives. This vision of God changes the way men interact with each other. When we get a proper vision of the values of a holy God, it is a life transforming opportunity.

"Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;" Heb 1:3

I believe God is still watching the power of his message bring about the fullness of his will. Person to person as the Gospel is transmitted in words, action and the very spirit/ attitude of those he uses brings about a universal view of the maker of it all.

Imagine in your mind the Eternal Spirit of God putting on the garments of flesh to redeem men from the destructive power of carnality. Eye for an Eye, Flesh for Flesh, Hope for despair, healing for disease, direction for confusion, beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning and whatever the problem there is a corresponding solution found in the revelation of Christ.

Think about the many things God has done for you in your life. Get a picture in your mind of this. Arm yourself with the sword of a miraculous memory. Equip your life with the prophetic words you have received and read. Catch a glimpse of a victorious savior shaking the worlds and bringing all men to bow the knee even to confession of his Lordship.

No matter your situation. God has a Special work he can and will bring to bear.

Just thinking about the only God and Saviour Jesus Christ!

In Him, By Him, Through Him,

Jude 1:25
25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

Titus 3:4-7
4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, 5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; 6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; 7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

Titus 2:13
13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

1 Tim 2:3-6
3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
