It’s a love affair

   Posted by: amasco   in News Updates

Hello Guys, I have an interesting news to share with you, this week we are looking at the nature and the character of God , as I take the time to ponder on some of the nature and characteristics of God, who He is, how majestic, all knowing, all powerful  that He Is,  I am just constantly  blown away by his awe.

If you are familiar with some of the characteristics of the mighty God that we serve, you might kind of have an impression that he is far away somewhere and a tiny person like me cannot have access to him, close to him, not to talk of knowing him.  But I want to share with you today that that is a big lie from the enemy.

The God we serve want to be known and want a relationship with us, the more I come to engage and understand the God I serve through the power of the Holy Spirit, I am drawn into His marvelous light.

He is a relational God, meaning he is personal and he wants to be known to each and every one of us, He is infinite in being
and perfection.
He is eternal. He is OUTSIDE of time. He is free from “duration” or “succession” of time. God had no beginning. He is “uncaused” because He has always existed. God has no end. He can never cease to exist

Am Happy to share with us that this God is not just hidden somewhere, he has actually reveal himself to us through

  • His written word which is the bible and
  • His living Word, Jesus the Messiah.
  • Creation – the other day as I took a walk at the Muizenberg beach, looking at the
    mountain, the ocean and all that surround me I cannot but shout out to him of
    how beautiful, awesome, wonderful, loving that He is.

He is far from being a non personal God. He rejoices when you rejoice. He weeps when
you weep. God CARES about you.

God has called us into a personal relationship with Himself, not just a relationship but a Love affair. He has invited us into
fellowship, and he has given us a seal to prove that to us.

And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the
redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory. Ephesians 1:13-14

There has never been a time when we need the ministry of the holy spirit than NOW, you may ask the  why question, there is just so much of God that we are missing out from, and the only way we could come into that fullness of what God has for us is by  coming to that point where we really know and engage the holy spirit to revealed to us what we are missing about
God.

We have some knowledge about God, we have some revelation, we have some understanding, but those are not enough, and I want to personally encourage you to keep pressing in and keep engarging the person of the Holy Spirit, He is our teacher, counselor, comforter and all you need him to be.  I believe the reason why Jesus sends the Holy Spirit to us is  so that we could come to
the full knowledge of the person of God.

I will stop here for now  but remember that what we are called to is not just any relationship, it is to  a loving relationship with the
most relational and a loving God that creator the universe – what a great privilege and honor.
