Declaring the Mighty Works of God

“One generation shall praise Your works to another, and

shall declare Your might acts.”

Psalm 145:4, Page 997-998

The Mighty Acts of God. Have you noticed any of God’s mighty acts lately? Has He changed your life lately? One friend I meet at the beach every day tells me about the miracles God is doing right now in his life. Listening to how God works in his life greatly encourages me. If you do not meet with people regularly that tell you of the mighty acts of God in their lives, then change may be in order. I do not mean that you change your friends, but that you ask God to change your life.

Each Generation. David in this Psalm said that each generation shall praise the works of God to another generation. God filled the Bible with great stories of how He has displayed His power in the lives of David, Daniel, Abraham, Isaac, the two blind men sitting in the road, all the people Jesus healed of diseases, all the demons Jesus cast out of people, and many other examples. Jesus performs the miracle of salvation every day for people all over the world. He takes people alienated from God, hostile to God, and living in evil deeds and forgives them and transforms them (Colossians 1:21, page 1842). No one deserves the gift of salvation, but Jesus gives it to those people who do not deserve it (none of us deserve God’s gift (Ephesians 2:8-9, page 1828). Jesus touches lives with His power, forgives your personal sin because you believe He died for you on the cross, and makes you a new creation, so that all things become new spiritually. I know about that saving power of God in my life and I enjoy sharing God’s plan of salvation with new friends. I love to watch the power of Jesus Christ change lives. Jesus makes a new spiritual generation of believers all the time.

Changing Your Life. Changing your life means that you start talking to people you know about the power of God at work in your life. As you turn your life over to Jesus every day, day by day, then you realize He can help you and He will change your life. You start to look for the things God does to display His power. Is your life improving or sinking deeper? The only way to have a life rising higher will be to trust in the power of Jesus Christ. He said that He can do “far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us . . . ” (Ephesians 3:20, page 1830). Did you catch that? He said He would do more in my life than I can ask or think. He would do that according to His power.

Application for Living Today

God intends for me to praise Him by telling generations of His mighty acts. I will look for His mighty acts and tell my friends, my family, and everyone God tells me to tell about the power He is showing in my life. I will also be counting upon God to change my life to praise Him, according to the power that works within me.

 Christ Assembly Basics 

Christ Assembly provides free access to various studies from the Bible, the Word of God. The studies in this website are not inspired, but God produced the Bible, consisting of sixty-nine books (39 Old Testament and 27 New Testament). The Holy Spirit inspired authors to produce original autographs of the Bible in Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek. Those original authors wrote over the course of many centuries. They wrote divinely inspired words and every word was divinely inspired. The authors communicated in their own styles, and with their own vocabulary, but God breathed out every word of the final autographs. The words in the Bible really matter, and deserve careful study. 
As we study, we seek to love Jesus more because His word has instructed us so that we learn His ways. Eternal life consists in knowing God the Father, and Jesus Christ Whom God sent. As the eternal God of Glory, One with His Father, the Son of God took flesh and dwelt among us. Because of His death, He used His blood to purchase our redemption. He was raised for our justification. We now live by faith in the Son of God, Who loved us and gave Himself for us. By the grace of God, the Holy Spirit abides in every born-again believer and fills us with His presence and blessings. He leads us into all truth. Jesus is the truth, and the way, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Jesus, our Lord. 
We look forward to His imminent return to the clouds of earth, to snatch away the believers alive on earth, so that we may be forever with the Lord. When He returns to the clouds, He will bring with Him all those people in Christ who died before His return to the clouds. We encourage one another with the promises of God, Who makes our path grow brighter and brighter, until the full light of day shines forth. We love Jesus and look forward to seeing Him soon. After Jesus removes the believers from the earth, then a terrible period of seven years follows where God brings measured and precise judgments upon the people alive on earth. God cut those days of  Tribulation short, or no flesh would have been saved. Jesus will then return to earth, slay His enemies, and place His feet on the Mount of Olives where He ascended to heaven. He will then reign on earth for a thousand years, and believers will reign with Him. After the Millennial Reign of Christ, all unbelievers will be judged at the Great White Throne Judgment, and they will suffer according to their deeds done on earth. They will be cast into the Lake of Fire, a place of torment night and day for eternity, because they never received the free gift of salvation while alive on earth. One day, every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord, to the glory of God. Today we invite you to come and see Jesus, and learn from Him, for He is gentle and humble in heart. Take His yoke upon you, for His burden is easy and His yoke is light. He will give you rest for your soul as you trust Him. We receive salvation only from Jesus, by faith alone in Jesus, Who gives us the free gift of eternal life. 
We accept the teaching of the Word of God. As born again believers, baptized by Jesus with the Holy Spirit, the anointing from God teaches us all things. We love to study the Word of God as we abide in Christ Jesus our Lord. God blesses all of us when we read His word, hear His word, and heed His word. We share original studies of the Word of God without cost and we do not receive donations. We support the finances of this ministry through private means, so that we are not a burden to anyone. We oppose charging people to read books, articles, journals or other studies of the Word of God. Such work should be supported by donations, but not in prescribed amounts and not as a requirement to gain access to what God has freely provided. What God has freely given, we should freely share. Just as Paul worked making tents, so we work to support this ministry.
