On Your Purpose

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created” (Revelation 4:11 KJV).

If you are seeking your purpose today, you can find it today!

Why are we here? From where did we come? Where are we going? The Holy Bible addressed these queries and answered them over 3,500 years ago, but philosophers and theologians still wrestle with these questions because they still wrestle with the Bible’s answers. Some seek to find purpose and meaning in life by studying nature, others by meditating, still others by praying, and so on. Despite all that searching, very few ever actually find the meaning of life because of the confusion as to how to find it and because nearly all of the ways that are presumed to lead to it lead to everything but it!

In today’s Scripture, the 24 elders in heaven have cast their crowns before Father God sitting on His throne in heaven, and they worship Him, particularly by uttering today’s Scripture, “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.” They admit that their authority to rule is actually power that Father God gave them, power that they exercise to praise and honor Him. He is worthy to receive their crowns because that authority was His before He gave it to them!

The “things” in today’s Scripture are offices of government in heaven and earth (see Colossians 1:16,17). Colossians 1:18,19 say, “…that in all things he [Jesus Christ] might have the preeminence [supremacy]. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell.” Originally, Father God wanted heaven and earth to glorify His Son, Jesus Christ (Ephesians 1:9,10), so He created angels (for heaven) and humans (for earth) to carry out His will. Once angels and man sinned, God created the nation Israel (to restore earth) and the Church the Body of Christ (to restore heaven).

Why do you exist? Why does everything exist? To glorify the Lord Jesus Christ!

Christian ambassador (Shawn Brasseaux)

Grace and peace! What a privilege to be an ambassador for the risen Christ here on WordPress! I am a Pauline dispensationalist Christian saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus plus nothing! My goal is to "have all men saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth" (1 Timothy 2:3,4). I seek to preach Jesus Christ crucified for our sins, buried, and raised again for our justification as the only way to salvation. Also, I seek to edify and perfect the saints using dispensational Bible study and the Authorized Version King James Bible!
