Things About God That Thrill Me!

Psa. 145:5 I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works.

Psa. 145:21 My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.

1. It Thrills Me To Know God Is Still On The Throne!

  • When dictators are dead and forgotten, God will still be God.
  • He is eternal.

When stars fall from heaven and the sun grow cold and mountains crumble into dust, His Throne still rules.

2. His Blood Has Never Lost Its Power!

The blood of bulls and goats has dried up long ago, but Christ’s Blood is more powerful than sacrificed animals.

  • Picture the ancient priests and the sacrifices.
  • But, now we are blood washed.
  • He has given us a clear record.
  • We are Saved, Washed and Protected by the Blood.

3. It Thrills Me That Every Promise Is True!

  • God cannot lie.
  • He always keeps His Word
  • He is not obligated to make us any promise.
  • But once He does, He is bound to keep it.

The Character, Justice and Goodness of God stand behind every Divine Promise.

4. I Am Thrilled To Remember That Heaven Is Real!

  • It is more than a city in the state of the mind.
  • On the authority of God’s Word, it is an eternal City.
  • It is a prepared City for a prepared people.
  • He has prepared a place for us.

John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

5. I Am Thrilled That He Is Coming Back Again!

  • He came the first time because the prophets said He would.
  • He’s coming the second time by His own Word and Testimony.

To His Disciples the Angels said:

Acts 1:11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

6. None Of These Truths Could Really Thrill Me Unless I Was Convinced The Soul Is Immortal!

  • My soul is going to live forever somewhere.
  • It can be saved or lost.
  • But it will live eternally.

7. I Am Thrilled What The Pentecostal New Birth Experience Does For Us.

  • It gives us Victory
  • Forgiveness
  • Joy
  • Power
  • His Name!
  • Eternal Life

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

  2. Very good post Elder Ballestero. I was thinking of similar things last night; I was lying awake late last night just thanking God for what he has done for me. I was trying to remember the old me before I came to the truth and it hit me. The memories are still there but the old me was completely erased from my memory. I lie there thanking Him for all he has done for me. Great post elder. Thank you.

  5. It was great to see you and to speak to you at LTC in Hopkinsville. This is a great sermon. I am sure thankful God is on the throne. If I were in control of my life, It would be a disaster. With God, I can do anything.
