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
He Chose Us
"You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and [that] your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you."
It’s a wonderful thing to be considered a child of God. It’s equally wonderful to understand how that relationship comes to pass. We, who are sinful by nature, do not come to the LORD on our own account. Jesus exercises His supreme authority and control as the LORD of hosts, to call and appoint people, as heirs of His eternal blessings. He is THE Angel of the LORD – THE Messenger of the Father’s good news concerning forgiveness, cleansing, and eternal life. If not for Jesus’ authority to call sinners; if not for His testimony as the Word, none would remain. Instead, we’re called by His authority, and blessed to bear His fruit, unto His glory, and our peace.
