God is so much more than we could EVER imagine!

Commentary By:  Gordon King

I have been contemplating the existence of God for quite some time and have trouble putting it into words.  Not whether God exists or not, but of the nature of God, of His mightiness, His greatness, His majesty, and His love for us.

I have a sense of the unimaginable depths of just how great God is, not that I know, and that’s my point, none of us really do nor can we!

Several years ago I had a supernatural experience with God, an experience which has changed my life forever.  I was at the lowest of lows, at the bottom of the pit, walking through the valley of the shadow of death.  I had no where else to turn but to God, I was completely broken and to the point of being suicidal.

One day all alone, I fell to my knees, weeping tears of pain, anguish, and desperation.  I called out to God to please help me!  No sooner than I could finish that sentence an overwhelming sense of peace and comfort came upon me.  I felt the presence of God!  I could see Jesus either in a vision or in my mind’s eye, regardless I saw him.  He stood in front of me yet above me with open arms, beckoning me to come to Him, and I did.

I was wrapped in a blanket of warmth and peace, filled to the brim and over flowing with God’s presence.  I have no other way to explain it other than I truly believe that I was anointed by Jesus!  He filled me with His Holy Spirit, surrounded me with His presence, and gave me everything that I needed and hoped for.  It was electrifying, intense, and supernatural!

He began leading me in His word, in fact it was the Holy Spirit who told me to start this website, I had no idea what a blog was at the time, this was almost five years ago.  He told me that this would be my ministry, that I would warn people of the closeness of His coming, that I would relate to the world what is happening with bible prophecy.  He told me that if just one person comes to Christ and is born again that it would all be worth it.  He gave me a ministry of encouragement and of community within the body of Christ.

How can I explain in words just what this was actually like?  How can I convey the greatness and the glory of God in mere words?

A few months later the good Lord anointed me with His love, that’s the only way I can explain it.  I wrote a post about this, but once again, I don’t think that mere words do it justice.  I felt an overpowering love, love that flowed in me and through me, as if rivers of living water engulfed my very soul.  I felt the strongest need to just go out and tell people that I love them, that God loves them!  To tell people that they are cared for, and that there is nothing greater than God’s love for us!  I don’t remember now just how long that lasted, but for me it surely wasn’t long enough, and I want it again!

I wrote about these two experiences that I had not to boast, but to illustrate that God is so much more than we really know.  That His depths are infinite, that His ways are so much better than we could ever know in this life time.  To try and explain just how great God is would be like trying to explain the universe to a four-year old!

I don’t know just how great God is or how magnificent and majestic, but I do know this, just as Moses was only allowed to see just a glimpse of God’s glory, I was able to feel just a glimpse of His comfort, and get just a taste of His love.  I believe that I would not have lived to see another day if God would have shown me all of His love or all of His power and glory, just as Moses would not have survived if he saw any more of the glory of God.

As humans we are so finite, so small compared to God.  Our ways are not His ways, and our thoughts are not His thoughts.  Our tiny human brains could not comprehend just how great God really is!  But we can sure get a glimpse of Him, we can begin to know Him and to understand Him.

For some reason that I do not truly understand, I feel a strong need to tell people just how great God is, but as a human with a human mind and brain I cannot find the words to appropriately and rightly do so.  I do know this, God is so much bigger than we give Him credit for, and many of us put God in a box, taking Him out only when we are in need of something.

Everything in this universe is created by Elohim, nothing that exists could exist without God.  Everything in the universe is held together by Jesus Christ, and it all exists for Him!  If our universe is as big as we think it is, and most of us could not even comprehend that, then how much bigger is the God who created it all?!

As I sit and write this post I can feel the Holy Spirit moving within me, giving me encouragement, giving me comfort.

Jesus Christ came to this earth as a man and God, yet He humbled Himself to the point of being mocked, scorned, and crucified.  He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords, yet when He lived on earth as a man He wore a crown of thorns!  But now He sits in heaven not only as the King of the universe, but as our High priest.

We must not take for granted what God has in store for us once we get to heaven, for I believe that it will be much grander than anything we could imagine, just as God is much bigger than we can now imagine!  Jesus lived on earth as a priest, yet humbled Himself before men, He came as a King, yet lived as a popper.  However, once in heaven He took the throne as the ruler of the universe!  The High priest above all others! 

Jesus has made all believers kings and priests as well, and don’t you think that once we get to heaven we shall be much better than we are now?!  I sure do!  I believe that there is so much more in store for us, that we will be made much, much better than we are now.  And we shall live lowly and humble lives while here on earth if we are true to our calling, just as Christ did.  Yet I believe that we shall be raised up to rule and reign, to have authority over what God gives to us.

Once in heaven we will have no more sin, for it shall all be wiped away, as if it never happened!  We will be as white as snow, even as Christ is.  And this is how our Father in heaven sees us, as He also sees His Son.  We will have eternity to know God, to love Him, and to cherish His intense and never-ending love for us!

God Bless my friends!  Maranatha!

    God blessed you Gordon and has worked through you to bless others for Him! I thank God for bringing me to this site because I had been in the wilderness a very long time and it was refreshment for me and an oasis in the desert. I have found confirmation , scriptural clarification and edification through the posts. I still have many of the archives to read through but I am working my way through them. God is truly great Gordon, just over these last few weeks I have been listening to the Hymn ‘How Great Thou Art’ and my spirit soars in praise and worship because the words sum up how I feel. You will find versions on You tube and I especially like the ones set to a video of the Universe showing the Stars, the Waves, The mountains etc. I never like watching anyone singing I always prefer when it is to a background of Nature . God is so great I look at the tiniest flower the blue forget me knot with its tiny delicate pale blue petals and I am in awe of our wondrous creator!

    Maranatha!

      Thank you Christine!

      I appreciate your kind words and encouragement! God does bless us in many ways, and in many ways when we bless others it is a blessing to us as well.

      I absolutely agree with you about finding God in the smallest of things, such as the flower you suggested. If more people would only take the time to appreciate and admire these small wonders of nature then perhaps they would be able to see the work of God’s hands.

      God bless! Maranatha!

    Gordon did you Pray saying God at first or was it to Jesus? I know the scriptures say that Jesus is THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE AND NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER EXCEPT BY ME. I was just wondering if at first the prayer must always call on Jesus name? When I first met Jesus I had been saying His name over and over again in my head because I wanted Him to protect my mind from evil that was the first time and when I was Born again there was some repentance and asking for guidance but I can’t remember all of the conversation because I thought it had only been a few minutes but when I looked at the clock it had been more like 90 minutes . I am just wanting clarification on that because I know so many of my friends say I pray to God but I still don’t think they are showing signs they are saved yet.

    God Bless

      Thanks for your question Christine!

      When I was saved I called upon the name of Jesus! I asked Jesus to forgive me and for Jesus to save me. Also in the sinners prayer that I wrote and have posted on this blog, I use the name of Jesus. We must be saved by the Son of God, Jesus Christ! Right when I was saved I felt the Holy Spirit fill me to overflowing! It was very electrifying and intense, an experience that I will never forget. Some people tell me that saying and believing the sinners prayer will not save you, however I know different, it saved me! It’s not just saying a prayer, its repenting, having a change of heart, believing in Christ as Savior, and turning ones life over to him.

      I believe that so many people don’t really know the difference between God and God the Trinity, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. So if this is true, then do they really know God? There are many people who say that they believe in God, but have they actually given their life over to Jesus Christ?! Good question!

      God bless! Maranatha!

    Thank you Gordon, I do believe that it’s not really just saying the prayer as a recital that will bring us to salvation because The Lord looks on the heart and 2 people could pray the same sinners prayer but maybe only 1 would be justified because it is not just the words but the speaking from the heart as in your example. When we seek Him with all our heart we will find Him.

    God bless
    Maranatha!

      Thanks for your comment Christine!

      I agree it’s not just saying words, as I have stated many times and also state on my “get saved” page, but also doing what I said: having a change of heart, acknowledging your sin, repenting of your sins, believing what this prayer says and means, by accepting Christ into your heart. We are justified through our faith, given to us by the grace of God. In order for us to be saved we must also have faith that God exists, that Jesus Christ is God, and that the blood of Jesus can save us. Even demons believe yet they are not saved, for they rebel against God.

      There are many people who tell me that you cannot be saved by a sinners prayer. Well of course not, no one can, Jesus Christ is the one who saves, like you said we need to have a change of heart and a change of mind! The sinners prayer is not just a prayer, but a template for what we must do in order to be saved.

      God bless! Maranatha!
