The Lord hath established his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.
What great comfort are these sterling Words from Psalms. What immense consolation these Words prove to be to the fainting heart. What consolation to know that the Lord most high ruleth and sets up whom He will. God exercises absolute sovereign control over the world. He practices supreme jurisdiction over the entire universe: there is no power but of God, and the powers that be, are ordained of God." Rom.13:1
He it is that establishes thrones and kingdoms, so that His eternal plan will be fulfilled. No earthy province nor heavenly power exercises control beyond His jurisdiction. All power emanates from Him, and all the schemes of man will be used for God’s purposes. There are no exceptions and peculiarities to this established principle from God. Not Satan nor his earthly puppets can circumnavigate this fixed, fundamental truth: "the Lord has established His throne in the heavens, His kingdom rules over all." Ps.103:19
As the world continues to spiral out of control.. as the bedrock of our security is shaken – never, ever forget this one over-riding fact: that all rule, power, and authority emanate from one Person, and that person is God. God, Who is seated on His throne in a revealed position in the universe. God, Who is enthroned, in the uttermost parts of the north. God, Who from this vantage point directs the affairs of man, through His delegated rulers – good or evil. They all perform His will.
This eternal God Who knew the end from the beginning has thus ordered it. This One Who is seated beyond the realm of time, has thus revealed His plan to us. The plans and purposes of God are set out in the Scriptures. He revealed His purposes to us, through His servants, the prophets. He reveals His plans to us by His grace and His love, for all Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. 2Tim.3:16. All Scripture is God-breathed and God’s breath is the breath of life.. the breath of lives.
The Spirit of God hovered over the waters in the beginning to impart Life. The Spirit of God breathed the breath of Life – into a lump of clay, and that lump of clay that became Adam. As the Spirit of God; the Wind of God; the Breath of God; the Ruwach of God – breathes.. so the one that believes on the Lord Jesus Christ receives the Spirit’s vital breath of life. The one dead in trespasses and sins is born as a new creation. The one that is shrouded in darkness is translated into the Kingdom of light, by the Breath of God – the Spirit of God, the Wind of God, the Ruwach of God.
The One Who breathed life into the creation.. the One Who breathed life into Adam, is the One Who breathes life into each new born-again believer. He it is that Breathed Life into the wonderful, written Word of God. He it is that inspired the prophets to write and coordinate the living Scripture. He it is that also opens up the Word of God with a promise - to guide us into all truth. John 16:13
The God-breathed Word of God is thus alive and powerful, living, and life-giving. The holy, immutable, unchanging, infallible, Word of God is living and powerful. The Pneuma.. the Spirit of God, is inseparably connected with the Scripture of God. The One Who gave the Word to man is the One that gave the Word through man.
He is the same one that will guide the new man, into all truth. Indeed, He is the only One in the world today that can guide man into all truth, for the Scripture is living and the Scripture is spiritual, and spiritually discerned. The natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 1Cor.2:14
God in His grace has given us a little part in planting and watering the seed, but it is the Spirit of the Lord that draws all men unto Himself: so then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but it is God who gives the increase. 1Cor.3:7. We Who are born of the Spirit have access to all the truths and promises in the Word. There is nothing in the Word of God that has been placed there erroneously, for all Scripture is given.. is God-breathed, and is profitable. 2Tim.3:16
Let us trust the Author of the Word that His Word is true. Let us believe the Author of the Word – that His Word is true. Let us know the Author of the Word – that His Word is true. Let us reckon on the Author of the Word – that His Word is true. Let us have faith in the Author of the Word. Let us have faith that all His Word is true. Let us have faith in all the Scripture that all His Word is true. For without faith in God and in His Word, it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him Heb.11:6
As the world continues to spiral out of control.. as the bedrock of our security is shaken – never, ever forget this over-riding fact: That we can through believing what He has written, trust His Word: The Lord hath established His throne in the heavens and His kingdom ruleth over all. There is no power but of God, and the powers that be are of God.
