The Throne Room Of God - Message #387 - December 04, 2005

One of the most popular programs on television is the X-Files. It is a show about the possibilities of extraterrestrial life. During the opening of the show you see these bold words across the starlit sky: "The truth is out there."
Yes, the truth is out there alright. He is God. Greater reverence for the God of the universe is in order. This is part of the message of the last book of the Bible, the book of Revelation. In Chapter 4 we have a vision of the throne of God. The One who sits on the throne is not identified or described. We know who He is. Lightning comes from the throne. Thunder is in the background.

A great emerald rainbow surrounds the throne. It reminds us of God's promise not to destroy the earth with a flood. There are seven great lights or torches around the throne. They represent the perfect Spirit of God who is true light. There are four awesome living creatures, angels with six wings, who continuously sing, "Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God, the Almighty." There is another rank of twenty-four angels. These are the powers and authorities of heaven. The throne sits on a massive sea of glass, calm and sedate.

God is in perfect control of His universe. He sits as King. His rule will never end. Life is secure. Where God reigns supreme, He brings peace. When God reigns in our hearts, He brings peace.

Glory to God, what an awesome message!

You Are

You are my bread when I am hungry
You are my strength when I am weak
You are the truth when I’ve been lied to
You are the answer that I seek
You are my water when I’m thirsty
You are my light when it is dark
You are my rock when I am breaking
You are the healer of my heart

You are the Alpha and Omega
You are the bright and morning star
Everything that I could ever need
You are

You are the way when I am wayward
You are the truth when I’m a liar
You are the life when I am dying
You are my rescue from the fire
You are the door when I am knocking
You are the shepherd when I’m lost
You are the Lord, You are the Son of God
You are the Lamb who bore my cross

You are the Alpha and Omega
You are the bright and morning star
Everything that I could ever need
You are

The One Who Stands Beside Me

I will have no other God
Besides the One who stands beside me
I will have no other Lord
Besides the One who leads and guides me
And I will run to no other refuge
Besides the One who safely hides me
I will have no other God
Besides the One, besides the One who stands beside me

Lord, to whom shall I go, and where else can I run to?
There's only one true God in this great big world
And that only One is You
So may this song of my devotion be my anthem through the years
As You stand by me through the laughter and the tears

I will have no other God
Besides the One who stands beside me
I will have no other Lord
Besides the One who leads and guides me
And I will run to no other refuge
Besides the One who safely hides me
I will have no other God
Besides the One, besides the One who stands beside me

Maker of heaven and earth, and Lord of the land and the sea
You're the only One who can rule this world
And the only One for me
So may this song of my devotion be my anthem and refrain
As You stand by me through the sunshine and the rain

I will have no other God
Besides the One who stands beside me
I will have no other Lord
Besides the One who leads and guides me
And I will run to no other refuge
Besides the One who safely hides me
I will have no other God
Besides the One, besides the One who stands beside me

(Read Exodus 20:1-6; John 6: 66-68)
"Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life."

The working title of this song is "Song of a Monotheist", which is what I am. I have only one God. He alone is my Refuge, my unfailing Rock in whom I trust. He has been my constant help and closest Friend. Though He may allow me to walk through difficult days, He never asks me to make it on my own. He has always been there right beside me.

In return for His perfect faithfulness, I offer my total devotion. There have been many times when all I had to run on was that commitment. When all the feelings had run dry, and there were no miracles in sight I had to tenaciously cling to the Gospel I knew to be true.

All praise, honor and glory be to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit--one God forever!
