Getting To Know God
His Name Is...
The Majestic God - Wonderful - LOVE - Trinity
One Gift Equips Another
You have ascended on high, You have led captivity captive; You have received gifts among men, even [from] the rebellious, that the LORD God might dwell [there].
God desires to dwell with His people. This is hard to understand. From His perspective, which is right and true, He is eternally perfect, holy, glorious, and great. We on the other hand are finite, corrupt, and profane. Why would God want to dwell with people like us? Still, the Bible shows that God, not only has that desire, but changed His form, as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, to dwell with us. He descended to earth, then to Hades in His death. He later ascended from the grave, then to heaven to prove His majesty. He did this to save us from corruption so that the soiled gifts we give to Him now, will one day be worthy of His glory.
