The Majesty Of God Our Lord

Have A Wonderful And Blessed Friday!!! The Majesty Of God Our Lord!!!

Psalm 8:1 To the chief Musician upon Gittith, A Psalm of David. O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.
Psalm 8:2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
Psalm 8:3 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
Psalm 8:4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
Psalm 8:5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
Psalm 8:6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:
Psalm 8:7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
Psalm 8:8 The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.
Psalm 8:9 O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

David speaks in verse 3 of his consideration of the heavens. He declares, “the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained”; He no doubt being out in the field night after night had studied the sky, and was in awe.
He knew well the moon and the stars; and knew enough to be awed at the might, the majesty, and the mystery of God as creator.

There was far more out there than man had ever dreamed. There were stars and planets. in bewildering number, of staggering dimensions, traveling at
inconceivable speeds, reaching further and further into unimaginable depths, and all of it is a tribute to the majesty of God. For, as David observed in verse 3, it is the work of His finger!

When we think of the majesty of Our Lord so many things he starts out with and ends with are truly amazing. Look at Moses he took this tiny baby out of the water where his Mother left him in a basket to prevent him of impending death. He was found by Pharaoh’s daughter, who sent for someone to nurse him, and that turned out to be his own mother. The Lord can work out anything PERFECTLY. That tiny little baby grew to lead Israel out of Egypt. Who else could have planned all that?
How wonderful to know that God is more interested in people than planets; more interested in souls than in stars; more interested in us than the universe!
David says that God made man “a little lower than the angels,” not “a little higher than the animals.” Charles Darwin described man as “the most efficient animal ever to emerge on the earth.” What a degrading view of man! Man is not just an efficient animal; he was made by an act of God, and made in the image and likeness of God!

God’s purpose for man was that as he walked in fellowship with and obedience with god, he would lead all of creation to honor and glorify its creator. However, man chose instead to disobey and go his own way, plunging this world into sin and darkness.
That’s why Jesus came. In fact, the writer of Hebrews, speaking of our Savior’s work of redemption, relates this passage to Him.
I don’t believe it was an accident for man to get it in their head to think they were as “animals” as animals and we just go back to the ground. We have no accountability, we can live as animals and have nothing to fear. We can live like the animals and not even care.
The point here is that as insignificant as man is, God still cares about us; and not only does he care about mankind in general, but He cares about each of us as individuals!

Hebrews 2:6 But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him?
Hebrews 2:7 Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands:
Hebrews 2:8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him.
Hebrews 2:9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.
Hebrews 2:10 For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
Hebrews 2:11 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,

Our glorious Lord, His throne on high He has carried humanity with Him for there, in glory, He sits enthroned in a battle-scarred body of flesh! And we, the redeemed men and women, are to share that glory for all eternity.

Even so, Christ left His throne in glory to come to this earth to pay the price for the sins of the world. Having done so, He has returned to his majesty on high. We who have acknowledged Him as Lord and Savior, share in that glory. And one day, when Christ returns, He will lead redeemed mankind in fulfilling the purpose for which God created us, as during his reign on earth, all things will be made new.

Look at what he has done in creation, spoke all this in to being. He make the mountains, the big seas, Oceans, he created all we see up in the sky including hanging the Sun, and Moon. He created man (Adam) from the dust of the ground. After that he seen it wasn’t good for man to be alone, so he put a great sleep to come over Adam, and created woman and did that with a rib from the man. He spoke into being the big tall trees to the tiniest flowers.

Christ left His throne in glory to come to this earth to pay the price for the sins of the world. Having done so, He has returned to his majesty on high. We who have acknowledged Him as Lord and Savior, share in that glory. And one day, when Christ returns, He will lead redeemed mankind in fulfilling the purpose for which God created us, as during his reign on earth, all things will be made new.

Have you ever just sat and shared with others the knowledge that our Lord Jesus Christ is returning soon in all His ” Majesty.” And may our Christian life be a worthy testimony of our faith in the return of our glorious King. Why should we live a holy life and put aside every weight of sin which so easily besets us? Because we don’t know when he will return and what should we be doing when he does return? And my oh my; what a day of glorious majesty that will be!

Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
Hebrews 9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Philippians 3:20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ:
Philippians 3:21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.
Colossians 3:4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

There is coming a day,
When no heart aches shall come,
No more clouds in the sky,
No more tears to dim the eye,
All is peace forever more,
On that happy golden shore,
What a day, glorious day that will be.
What a day that will be,
When my Jesus I shall see,
And I look upon His face,
The One who saved me by His grace;
When He takes me by the hand,
And leads me through the Promised Land,
What a day, glorious day that will be.
There’ll be no sorrow there,
No more burdens to bear,
No more sickness, no pain,
No more parting over there;
And forever I will be,
With the One who died for me,
What a day, glorious day that will be.
What a day that will be,
When my Jesus I shall see,
And I look upon His face,
The One who saved me by His grace;
When He takes me by the hand,
And leads me through the Promised Land,
What a day, glorious day that will be
God Bless
