Unrivaled

Chapter 38

Good Monday Morning to this new week 37 of 2020

The story of Elijah has some of this in it – the unrivaled God. In 1 Kings 18 …. He answered, ‘I have not troubled Israel; but you have, and your father’s house, because you have forsaken the commandments of the Lord and followed the Baals. Now therefore have all Israel assemble for me at Mount Carmel, with the four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal and the four hundred prophets of Asherah, who eat at Jezebel’s table.

it goes on ….
Then you call on the name of your god and I will call on the name of the Lord; the god who answers by fire is indeed God.’ All the people answered, ‘Well spoken!’ Then Elijah said to the prophets of Baal, 

then came the test ….
So they took the bull that was given them, prepared it, and called on the name of Baal from morning until noon, crying, ‘O Baal, answer us!’ But there was no voice, and no answer. 

now it was Elijah’s turn ….
Then Elijah said to all the people, ‘Come closer to me’; and all the people came closer to him. First he repaired the altar of the Lord that had been thrown down; Elijah took twelve stones …

Then the fire of the Lord fell and consumed the burnt-offering, the wood, the stones, and the dust, and even licked up the water that was in the trench. When all the people saw it, they fell on their faces and said, ‘The Lord indeed is God; the Lord indeed is God.’

God is unrivaled!

For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse. Romans 1. 20

God is unrivaled!

His deity; divinity; divine nature, or essence. The word is not used elsewhere in the New Testament. The truth of the unrivaled God, His supremacy, or supreme divinity of God, was exhibited in the works of creation, or that he was exalted above all creatures and things.

If he wasn’t unrivaled … God would be

common, commonplace, comparable, imitable, indistinctive, matchable, equal, equivalent equal, comparable, matched, paralleled ….

God is unrivaled!

He possesses unrivaled influence, His movement is lead with much grace and dignity, His Kingdom is advancing with mastery. Jesus son of God, man of courage and decision also unrivaled in his humility and approach to the suffering and needs of this earth, He takes on this great challenge of Earth one step at a time and advances with unrivaled tact and vigor.

God is unrivaled!

Wishing you a great week as you join in with the steps of this unrivaled God.
Philemon
