God and Christ Jesus Are In Us ALL THE TIME!!!

Greetings!  This is one of the most beautiful and blessed truths that a believer possesses. Literally, God and Christ Jesus are within us every second of our lives and They NEVER, EVER leave us!  And the best part, They are always there to help, comfort and do ALL They can for our highest good! WOW!!!

Let’s look at a few Scriptures concerning this.

Jesus is within us: 2 Corinthians 13:5;Galatians 2:20; Colossians 1:27

God is within us: Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 3:16: Ephesians 2:22

The Holy Spirit is within us: 2 Timothy 1:14; 1Thessalonians 4:7

Now, it is true that They have Their “Headquarters”, so to speak, in the ‘3rd heaven’ where Paul visited….2 Corinthians 12:2. However, God and Jesus not only defy the concept of time as we humans know it (2 Peter 3:8) but space and distance as well: They are EVERYWHERE at one time….Acts 17:27,28.

The joyous and most valuable lesson we must come to realize is that we have to GET PASS the FALSE CONCEPT that God and Christ Jesus are “up there somewhere in heaven” while we are down here on earth, separated from Them. NOTHING can be further from the truth: They are ALWAYS as close to us as our breathing. And, we need to learn to look to Them as being EVEN CLOSER than that….and be going to Them continually, as well as ‘chatting’ with Them, aside from any formal prayer.

This is truly ‘Practicing The Presence Of God’!  (Please reference the Post on this subject.)

God’s Creative Handiwork

Greetings….I thought I would use this Post to display some of the  pictures taken by the Hubble spacecraft and found at the website below. These are just a few more examples of God’s astoundingly beautiful, creative “Genius” (I speak as a human, as Paul would say!) carried out by His Son (John 1:3).

Can you imagine how much more awesomely glorious is the “third heaven” spoken of by Paul in 2 Corinthians 12:2, where the Father and Christ Jesus now dwell, and which will be our future home!!! ( At the time when Paul penned this, the “first” heaven was considered what a person saw when they would look up to the sky. The “second” heaven was the universe beyond what the naked eye could see, or these pictures from Hubble. The “third” heaven was the unseen or “other dimensional” realm where the Father, Christ Jesus, angels [messengers] and other celestial beings reside.)

To get to the pictures just point the arrow on your mouse to the website address below and left click. To return to this website just click your “back” arrow, which should be in the upper left corner of your screen.

Actually, you can purchase calendars exhibiting pictures taken from Hubble at Amazon.com. I have one in my kitchen and just about every time I glance at it I am reminded of how blessed we are to have God as our Father and Christ Jesus as our Savior.

Later, in Christ,

Fred
