"For the horse of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and the Lord brought again the waters of the sea upon them; but the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea."
(Exodus 15:19 KJV)
"And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
(Revelation 22:3 KJV)
God is Awesome! He has done it all from creation to our future; What's Next? He is the Beginning and the End and will be forever. Some of the spectacular things God has done include Creation, choosing Abraham from all the people living at that time to become His chosen people and then there was Egypt and freeing His people using Moses (Exodus 15). He chose to send His only Son, Jesus Christ, as the only sinless man, to save us from our sins. And He will send His Son back to call His Christian people home and to put Satan in his home, hell. What's Next?
It never ceases to amaze that Our Awesome God has created a marvelous world for us. When we look at nature, we see such intricate detail, building from the smallest atom through complex molecules, forming tiny cells which combine into a vast multitude of plants and animals. We look into the heavens and see a limitless empty space, yet populated by uncountable stars, planets and moons, among others. And it is all one huge machine, spoken into existence by God, working to make just the right environment for us to live and prosper. Then Our Awesome God created man. (Genesis 1-2)
Our Awesome God allowed man to do many awful things until His patience was exhausted and then He sent a flood to destroy all living things living on the land except Noah, his family and two of each living thing which He sent to Noah (Genesis 6:19). A century later, He chose Abraham out of the city of Haran to be the earthly father of His chosen people (Genesis 12:1). God taught him what he needed to know; His Covenant, the way to sacrifice, patience, to trust in God, that God keeps His Word and to believe in no other god.
Four more centuries passed. Our Awesome God's people had become a nation of slaves in Egypt and God, with many miraculous wonders, freed His people with Moses to lead them. God held the waters back in the Red Sea while His people passed on dry land and then drowned all of the pursuing Egyptian Army when the Red Sea came hurtling down on them (Exodus 14:21-28).
Fifteen more centuries went by before Our Awesome God knew it was the right time to send His Son, Jesus Christ, as the Savior for all of mankind. By this time man was again destroying everything with his sin and sinful nature. Those who believe in Jesus Christ; that He died for you, taking your sins upon Himself and arose the third day to sit by God (1 Corinthians 15:3-4), interceding for you when you sin; will be saved for eternity with God and are called Christians.
The Holy Bible ends with the Book of Revelation, telling about events that will occur in the future, with Satan being bound and thrown in "the place prepared for him."(Revelation 20:2-3). God is not finished yet. The Holy Bible tells us that we, as Christians, will reign with Jesus "as heirs and joint heirs with Christ."(Romans 8:17). Join us at LWBC each Sunday for Bible classes at 9:30 AM, the Worship Service at 10:30 AM and there is also a Bible Study at 6:00 PM concurrent with AWANA for children. We have more during the week!
