God’s Perfect Gift of Understanding All Tied Up With A Red Ribbon
We have all just gone through a season of giving and making new resolutions. No doubt you made a concerted effort to give God ‘a present’ for the bountiful blessings you received last year and your ability (with his help) to ‘almost’ keep those resolutions you vowed in 2018.
Well, after you have counted your blessings and named them one by one, please take a pencil and paper and specifically write down the ‘gifts’ you gave to God for all of his input in the mix. I can guarantee you, you did not out give him. Nor was whatever gift(s) you gave him as surprising and original as his gift to you.
Let me share with you the gift God gave me. It was awesome. And I did not realize my gift until I started to write this blog post for you this week.
As I reviewed the materials I posted in the last two blogs I said to God these words; “I guess you are through talking to me about the mystical signs on the dollar bill and the 13 five pointed stars above the eagle’s head; now for this week, what do I need to blog about?” Immediately, God responded with scripture:
“My God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19
I also knew where to find the method or attitude that is required of us when we fellowship or ‘give back’ to the Lord. In Micah 6:8 we find:
“He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
Why have I frozen. Speak, Lord.
Just after I had finished typing the last word in the scripture above, I sat staring at the computer. I said to myself, why have I frozen. Speak Lord, thy servant is listening. Immediately, I began to recall last week’s blog about the number 5 and its numerology meaning. The number 5 represents God’s divine grace, mercy, goodness and favor toward humans.
And guess what! Those two scriptures that the Lord had put into my psychic were a biblical numerology of the number 5!!
Now, in biblical numerology, single numbers can be a conglomerate of several numbers. For example, 4 + 1 + 9 = 14, and 1 + 4 = 5. God’s Grace!
Look again at Philippians 4:19. It actually equals the biblical numerology number 5.
The next example is, 6 + 8 = 14, and again 1 + 4 = 5. God’s Grace!
Look again at Micah 6:8. It, too, actually equals the biblical numerology number 5.
You see, if you lean not unto your own understanding, but lean on God’s understanding, he will reveal to you the secrets of his knowledge and his wisdom. He will also reveal his gifts to you. What do you understand about the 23 Psalms? (Exactly,..2 + 3 = 5. And the 23rd Psalms is full of God’s grace, mercy, goodness and favor towards humankind.)
If you search your own biblical knowledge, I am sure you can come up with a number of scriptures that add up to the numerology number 5 and that depict God’s grace towards humans. And don’t forget our extremities: 5 fingers per hand, 5 toes per foot, 5 senses, etc. The biological creation of man was no accident either, folks.
What a blessed Christmas and New Year’s Gift I received from my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He constantly shows me just how much He loves me through His word. I love to have conversations with Him using scripture, and like Enoch, walk with Him in the cool of the day.
God’s final surprise for me was when he reminded me of John 3:16. He said, My child, I leave you with a two-fold double whammy. 3 + 1 + 6 = 10 and 1 + 0 = 1 (God). When I allowed my Only Begotten Son to come to earth for 32 years, 3 + 2 = 5, to deliver you from death, hell and the grave, those two fetes alone represented my Grace and Mercy BIG TIME!!!!!
Oh yah and Amen!! You Rock, God!!!
Scripture Lesson: And they remembered that God was their rock, and the Most High God their Redeemer. Psalms 78:35 (7+8+3+5=23 or 2+3=5)
