LOOKING TO PRAISE AND WORSHIP JESUS THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD. 18 No man has ever seen God at any time; the only unique Son, or the only begotten God, Who is in the bosom [in the intimate presence] of the Father, He has declared Him [He has revealed Him and brought Him out where He can be seen; He has interpreted Him and He has made Him known].

FROM THE BEGINNING TO THE END



...I posted this on my blog and felt that others should listen to this dear man speak

God is Sovereign over everything and everyone. This dear man is an example of humbleness and exceptance of God's Sovereign plan for his life. I encourage you to listen to what this child of God says on the Sovereignty of God.


Sovereign, supreme disposal

(J. C. Philpot, "Meditations on Ephesians")

"And God has put all things under the authority of Christ,and He gave Him this authority for the benefit of the church." Ephesians 1:22

God has put all things, events, and circumstances under the authority of Christ! How vast, how numerous,how complicated are the various events and circumstances which attend the children of God here below, as they travel onward to their heavenly home! What an intricate maze they often seem, and how much they appear opposed to us,as if we never could get through them, or scarcely live under them!

Yet, there cannot be a single circumstance over which Jesus has not supreme control. Everything in providence and everything in grace are alike subject to His disposal.
There is not . . .
a trial,
a temptation,
an affliction of body or soul,
a loss,
a cross,
a painful bereavement,
a vexation,
a grief,
a disappointment,
a case, state, or condition,
which is not put under Jesus' authority!


He has sovereign, supreme disposal over all events and circumstances! As possessed of infinite knowledge,He sees them. As possessed of infinite wisdom, He can manage them. As possessed of infinite power, He can dispose and direct them for our good and His own glory!How much trouble and anxiety we would save ourselves,could we firmly believe, realize, and act on this! If we could see by the eye of faith that . . .
every foe and every fear,
every difficulty and perplexity,
every trying or painful circumstance,
every looked-for or unlooked-for event,
every source of anxiety, whether at present or in prospect,

are all under His dominion, and at His sovereign disposal--what a load of anxiety and care would be taken off our shoulders!

"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me."
Matthew 28:18

We fall at His feet and adore our great God and Saviour Jesus Christ and fully embrace His sovereignty. How can we argue against it and not see this beloved truth and the dear rest it gives our restless hearts.

I watched this once a while ago...I can't remember the program that he was on, but I vividly recall him and his powerful testimony.

Thanks for sharing it!
