Dereck Cromhout's message on Sunday
Your genealogy takes you back to God.
God is not contained in the natural.
He is far greater and cannot be subject to it.
You are from God.
You are wonderful.
HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT?
Because God is your origin!
You are made by Him, for His purpose.
We read in LUKE 3v23-25
“When He began His ministry, Jesus Himself was about thirty years of age, being, as was supposed, the son of Joseph, the son of Eli, the son of Matthat, the son of Levi, the son of Melchi, the son of Jannai, the son of Joseph, the son of Mattathias, the son of Amos, the son of Nahum, the son of Hesli, the son of Naggai, IN VERSE 37-38.
the son of Methuselah, the son of Enoch, the son of Jared, the son of Mahalaleel, the son of Cainan, the son of Enosh, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God.
SO THEN OUR ORIGIN WAS GOD.
With that in mind let us read in psalms 139.
It was written by a shepherd who became king.
His name was David.
The purpose of this psalm was to acknowledge Gods omnipresence.
It is written in Psalms 139 v1-18
“You know when I sit down and when I rise up; You understand my thought from afar. You scrutinize my path and my lying down, And are intimately acquainted with all my ways. Even before there is a word on my tongue, Behold, O LORD, You know it all. You have enclosed me behind and before, And laid Your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is too high, I cannot attain to it. Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend to heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the dawn, If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea, Even there Your hand will lead me, And Your right hand will lay hold of me. If I say, "Surely the darkness will overwhelm me, And the light around me will be night," Even the darkness is not dark to You, And the night is as bright as the day. Darkness and light are alike to You. For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother's womb. I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand. When I awake, I am still with You.
God understands your thoughts and knows them.
NOTHING CAN SURPRISE HIM.
We cannot escape Gods presence!
GOD is omnipresent!
His presence is everywhere always.
HIS works are wonderful.
You come from GOD and that means you are wonderful.
Marvelous, set apart and distinguished.
This is what the word says!
GOD fashioned days for you before you were even born.
GOD MADE YOU FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY.
You are amazing and part of Gods family.
Well let us remember the story of the chicken/eagle.
Let me tell you another story.
An eagle fell out the nest before it could fly......
What was the difference between the 2 eagles.
THE DIFFERENCE WAS THEIR CHOICE.
Remember your original design.
Your original blueprint!
Dark matter your origin!
- Dark matter emits no light, and cannot be directly observed, but scientists think that it and dark energy make up most of the mass of the universe.
When scientists study our universe, they see that it’s expanding. But if the universe is only made of the galaxies, stars, planets, and other things that we know about, it shouldn’t be expanding. Something else is out there. There has to be energy that is making the universe expand. We just don’t know what this energy is. We also don’t know where it comes from. But we can tell that it’s there. Scientists named this energy dark energy.
I WANT TO SAY THIS MORNING THE GOD OF THE HEAVENS RESIDES IN THIS PARALLEL UNIVERSE.
I also want to say that we originate in God in heaven.
Isn't that amazing.
You were born here but did not originate here.
You come from divinity into humanity.
ROMANS 8v28 the mirror says
He pre designed and engineered us to be jointly fashioned in the same mold and image of His son according to the exact blueprint of His thought. We see the original and intended pattern of our lives preserved in His Son.
He is the firstborn from the same womb that reveals our genesis. He confirms that we are the invention of God.
Isn't that amazing!
YOU ARE NOT what your choices have shaped you to be.
You are not who you have become!
This is not the real you.
Your origin is God
Your origin is in the Kingdom of God.
You are a child of God!
That is your original design!
