Uni-verse 268/10,000 For better through verse Revelation 5 v 13
Rev 5:13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
As I sit meditating on this uni-verse in the garden, I can hear the birds chirping with joy, the squirrels crying with excitement. I can see the trees swaying gently in the breeze.
I recalled what the Lord had revealed two days ago in a time of prayer, “ The birds and the beasts acknowledge, praise and worship Me but much of mankind even in this city does not.” Like in the time of Noah, He likened the city to Sodom and Gomorrah and regretted that He had even created them.
The Psalmist says, “ He commanded and they were created.” The sun, moon and the trillion stars praise Him by shining in the darkness. All beasts and creatures praise His Being for their being. But, Kings of the earth, princes, judges, young men and maidens, old men and children and all people are not praising Him for His excellent Name. Firstly, for causing them to be and secondly, for redeeming them. Instead of focusing on their being and rejoicing at being, they are each engaged in “ becoming”-becoming richer, more famous, more powerful, more secure, more healthy, more happy. In doing so, they are missing the mark. They are too busy seeking blessing, glory, honour and power when all this both belongs to and originates from the Source of life, the Lamb of God-Jesus. The name of our planet Earth is split into “ ear” and “th..” The hint is hear with your ear and think and thank the Lord.Take the cue from this song:
In the name of secularizing history,recent revision of history have sought to rename B.C. and A.D. as Before Common Era or B. C. E. and Common Era. In a recent testimony that I gave before Members of Parliament and the capital’s elite, I said that “ Jesus is the X factor responsible for the rise and fall of individuals, families, organizations, societies, cultures and nations. When we acknowledge him as the beasts of the skies and the lands and the seas do, He is the X factor responsible for our Xcellence. When we do not and choose to ignore Him, He becomes the axe. Why is He above all things and persons to be worshipped in heaven and earth? He caused us into being as the First Cause of life itself. He paid the ultimate price for our shortcomings by being slain for us and thereby, placed before us the promise of eternal life. Therefore, blessing and honour and glory and power belong to Him and to Him alone in all of history and all of the universe.
