What does inheritance look like? What kind of a man is this!

-Galatians 4:6-7-

-“Because you are sons [daughters], God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father. “

So you are no longer a slave, but a son [daughter]; and since you are a son [daughter], God has made you also an heir. “-

-Matthew 8:27-

– The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”

When God comes…

-Isaiah 65:1-6-

Who is this coming from Edom,
from Bozrah, with his garments stained crimson?

Who is this, robed in splendor,
striding forward in the greatness of his strength?

“It is I, proclaiming victory,
mighty to save.”

2 Why are your garments red,
like those of one treading the winepress?

3 “I have trodden the winepress alone;
from the nations no one was with me.

I trampled them in my anger
and trod them down in my wrath;
their blood spattered my garments,
and I stained all my clothing.
4 It was for me the day of vengeance;
the year for me to redeem had come.
5 I looked, but there was no one to help,
I was appalled that no one gave support;
so my own arm achieved salvation for me,
and my own wrath sustained me.
6 I trampled the nations in my anger;
in my wrath I made them drunk
and poured their blood on the ground.”

The LORD can give you much more than that

-2 Chronicles 25:9-

-Amaziah asked the man of God, “But what about the hundred talents I paid for these Israelite troops?”

The man of God replied, “The LORD can give you much more than that.”-

What do I do when a tough situation arises? When things are desperate and I have to do what I have to do?

How far do I trust God?

Mathematics

-Genesis 18:23-33-

-Then Abraham approached him and said: -“Will you sweep away the righteous with the wicked?

What if there are fifty righteous people in the city? Will you really sweep it away and not spare the place for the sake of the fifty righteous people in it?

Far be it from you to do such a thing – to kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous and the wicked alike.
Far be it from you!

Will not the Judge of all the earth do right?”-

The LORD said, “If I find fifty righteous people in the city of Sodom, I will spare the whole place for their sake.”

Then Abraham spoke up again: “Now that I have been so hold as to speak to the Lord, though I am nothing but dust and she’s, what if the number of the righteous is five less than fifty? Will you destroy the whole city because of five people?

“If I find forty-five there,” he said, “I will not destroy it.”

One again he spoke to him, “What if only forty are found there?”
He said, “For the sake of forty, I will not do it.”

Then he said, “May the Lord not be angry, but let me speak. What is only thirty can be found there?”
He answered, “I will not do it if I find thirty there.”

Abraham said, “Now that I have been so bold to speak to the Lord, what if only twenty can be found there?”
He said, “For the sake of twenty, I will not destroy it.”

Then he said, “May the Lord not be angry, but let me speak just once more. What if only ten can be found there?”
He answered, “For the sake of ten, I will not destroy it.”

When the LORD had finished speaking with Abraham, he left, and Abraham returned home.”-

It’s a full conversation with a voice.
God.

God talking, is madness, surely?
And yet; God speaks.

I love it.

-Genesis 19:16-

“-When he hesitated, the men grasped his hand and the hands of his wife and if his two daughters and led them safely out of the city, for the LORD was merciful to them.”-

In my mind Syria and Iraq and the Occupied Territories come to mind; I can see the scene…angels clasping the hands of terrorised humans and leading them to safety in the fog of war.

Furtive.
A daze.
