Getting To Know God
His Name Is...
The LORD Of Hosts - The ANGEL Of The LORD - The Fear Of God - The Providential Sovereignty Of God
Authority Equips Righteousness
For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ…
When Jesus exercises His supreme authority as the LORD of hosts to call people unto Himself, He also exercises His providence to equip His people to live rightly. The Apostle Paul wrote to Titus to encourage him, to remind the church of this truth. Since we are called heirs of God by Jesus’ authority over the heavens and the earth, the manner of our calling should be embraced with fear and trembling. The God who has charge over all things in heaven and earth, called us to be His, and equipped us to live according to His likeness. What might a God with such power and control do, to those who willfully rebel against His purposes and power?
