Bible DISCOVERY 6: The MYSTERY of GOD

 

How much do we really know God?

Do we know Him at all?

Have we a love for our GOD?

Here are some unique ways God loves us, teaches us, names us, communicates with us, and even tests us.


1. God waits for the fullness of our actions.

16 But in the fourth generation 

they shall come 

hither again: 

for the iniquity of the Amorites 

is not yet full.

Genesis 15:16 (King James Version)


2. God listens to our prayers.

11 And the angel 

of the Lord said 

unto her, 

Behold, 

thou art with child 

and shalt bear 

a son, 

and shalt call his name 

Ishmael; 

because the Lord 

hath heard 

thy affliction.

Genesis 16:11 (King James Version)


3. God knows how we will become.

12 And he will be 

a wild man

his hand 

will be 

against every man, 

and every man's hand 

against him; 

and he shall dwell 

in the presence 

of all his brethren.

Genesis 16:12 (King James Version)


4. God comes in the form of a man -- however He wishes.

18 And the Lord appeared 

unto him 

in the plains 

of Mamre

and he sat 

in the tent door 

in the heat 

of the day;

2 And he lift up his eyes 

and looked, 

and, lo, 

three men 

stood by him

and when he saw them, 

he ran to meet them 

from the tent door, 

and bowed himself 

toward the ground,

Genesis 18:1-2 (King James Version)


20 And the Lord said, 

Because the cry 

of Sodom 

and Gomorrah 

is great, 

and because 

their sin 

is very grievous;

21 I will go down 

now, 

and see 

whether they 

have done altogether 

according 

to the cry 

of it, 

which is come 

unto me;

 and if not, 

I will know.

22 And the men 

turned their faces 

from thence, 

and went toward Sodom:

 but Abraham stood yet 

before the Lord.

Genesis 18:20-22 (King James Version)


33 And the Lord 

went his way

as soon as 

he had left communing 

with Abraham: 

and Abraham returned 

unto his place.

Genesis 18:33 (King James Version)


24 And Jacob 

was left alone; 

and there wrestled 

a man 

with him 

until the breaking 

of the day.

25 And when he saw 

that he prevailed not 

against him, 

he touched the hollow 

of his thigh; 

and the hollow 

of Jacob's thigh 

was out of joint, 

as he wrestled 

with him.

Genesis 32:24-25 (King James Version)


5. God causes us not to sin against Him.

6 And God said unto him 

in a dream, 

Yea, I know that 

thou didst this 

in the integrity 

of thy heart; 

for I also withheld thee 

from sinning 

against me

therefore suffered I thee 

not to touch her.

Genesis 20:6 (King James Version)


6. God can gift us with children, if it be His will.

17 So Abraham prayed 

unto God: 

and God healed Abimelech, 

and his wife, 

and his maidservants; 

and they bare children.

18 For the Lord 

had fast closed up 

all the wombs 

of the house 

of Abimelech, 

because of Sarah 

Abraham's wife.

Genesis 20:17-18 (King James Version)


21 And Isaac 

intreated the Lord 

for his wife, 

because she was barren: 

and the Lord 

was intreated of him, 

and Rebekah his wife 

conceived.

Genesis 25:21 (King James Version)


7. God opens our eyes so we may see.

19 And God opened her eyes, 

and she saw a well 

of water

and she went, 

and filled the bottle 

with water, 

and gave the lad 

drink.

Genesis 21:19 (King James Version)


8. God tests us.

22 And it came to pass 

after these things, 

that God 

did tempt Abraham

and said unto him, 

Abraham: 

and he said, 

Behold, 

here I am.

Genesis 22:1 (King James Version)


9. God answers our prayers before we're even done praying.

15 And it came to pass, 

before he had done speaking, 

that, behold, 

Rebekah came out

who was born to Bethuel, 

son of Milcah, 

the wife of Nahor, 

Abraham's brother, 

with her pitcher 

upon her shoulder.

Genesis 24:15 (King James Version)


10. God loves us all.

31 And when the Lord saw 

that Leah was hated, 

he opened 

her womb

but Rachel 

was barren.

Genesis 29:31 (King James Version)


22 And God remembered Rachel, 

and God hearkened to her, 

and opened 

her womb.

23 And she conceived, 

and bare a son; 

and said, 

God hath taken away 

my reproach:

24 And she called his name Joseph; 

and said, 

The Lord shall add 

to me 

another son.

Genesis 30:22-24 (King James Version)


11. God protects us from each other.

7 And your father 

hath deceived me, 

and changed my wages 

ten times; 

but God suffered him 

not to hurt me.

Genesis 31:7 (King James Version)


12. God comes to us in our dreams, giving us messages.

24 And God came to Laban 

the Syrian 

in a dream 

by night

and said unto him, 

Take heed 

that thou 

speak not to Jacob 

either good 

or bad.

Genesis 31:24 (King James Version)


13. God names us for His purpose.

28 And he said, 

Thy name 

shall be called 

no more Jacob, 

but Israel

for as a prince 

hast thou power 

with God 

and with men, 

and hast prevailed.

Genesis 32:28 (King James Version)


14. God withholds His Name from us, if He so wishes.

29 And Jacob asked him, 

and said, 

Tell me, 

I pray thee, 

thy name. 

And he said, 

Wherefore is it 

that thou 

dost ask after 

my name

And he blessed him there.

Genesis 32:29 (King James Version)


15. God allows us to see His face as a man.

30 And Jacob 

called the name 

of the place 

Peniel: 

for I have seen God 

face to face, 

and my life is preserved.

Genesis 32:30 (King James Version)


9 Jesus saith unto him, 

Have I been so long time 

with you, 

and yet hast thou 

not known me, Philip? 

he that hath seen me 

hath seen 

the Father

and how sayest thou then, 

Show us 

the Father?

John 14:9 (King James Version)


16. God destroys us.

7 And the Lord said, 

I will destroy man 

whom I have created 

from the face 

of the earth

both man, 

and beast, 

and the creeping thing, 

and the fowls 

of the air; 

for it repenteth me 

that I 

have made them.

Genesis 6:7 (King James Version)


17. God guides me in my work.

Despite the VOLUME of material in Scripture, God creates the prompts, leads me to the verses, helps me organize all those, and we get to create blogs and posts for you, with the objective of bringing the WORDS of GOD to greater understanding, for all of us, especially in these end times.
