Jesus has loved Father God with all His Strength. Giving His Father a new Heaven and new earth.
The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice; he who fathers a wise son will be glad in him.
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David, the servant of the Lord, who addressed the words of this song to the Lord on the day when the Lord rescued him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul.
He said: I love you, O Lord, my strength.
The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield,
and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised,
and I am saved from my enemies.
The cords of death encompassed me; the torrents of destruction assailed me; the cords of Sheol entangled me; the snares of death confronted me.
In my distress I called upon the Lord; to my God I cried for help.
From his temple he heard my voice, and my cry to him reached his ears.
The eyes of the LORD are toward the righteous And His ears are open to their cry.
Father God expects us to know He is our Father and helps us.
1 Peter 3:12
For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are inclined to their prayer. But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil."
For I tell you truly, until heaven and earth pass away, not a single jot, not a stroke of a pen, will disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.
1 Peter 1:25
but the word of the Lord stands forever." And this is the word that was proclaimed to you.
"God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent; Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?
"The Wizard of Oz", the original movie has the narrator intoning, "Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!"
If we have no clue where God, our Heavenly Father is, then we might feel as if our prayers hit the ceiling and bounce off.
Isn't 2,000 years or 3 or 4 or 5 to Abraham - just old men in old robes that raised livestock.
Father God wants the curtain torn. Father God shook up the ordinary ideas of the status quo. Father God loves for us to travel in new ideas of our Loving Father.
Just as the Temple Curtain has the Seraphim, many hundreds of years before Isaiah saw them, we see God has told us of His Home.
2 Seraphim stood above Him, each having six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3 And one called out to another and said, "Holy, Holy, Holy, is the LORD of hosts, The whole earth is full of His glory."
Who makes his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:
Ezekiel was considered to be so far reaching into God's Throne, Ezekiel was not allowed to be read by the laity until the last two millenniums.
The Throne of God Himself. Is that of Our God, creator. Interested in all. Where people do not throw themselves on the floor, as John was asked to stand up. God wants us to rise up. Stand in our Father's Presence. Why? He wants to see your face, look into your eyes, know His beloved Child.
Seraphim - the word means fiery ones, probably for their love - the status of Angel.
This is where our Father, inhales our prayers and answers us. This is His Word to give us the idea where God dwells:
1 In the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, on the fifth day of the month, as I was among the exiles by the Chebar canal, the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.2On the fifth day of the month (it was the fifth year of the exile of King Jehoiachin), 3 the word of the Lord came to Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the Chebar canal, and the hand of the Lord was upon him there.
4As I looked, behold, a stormy wind came out of the north, and a great cloud, with brightness around it, and fire flashing forth continually, and in the midst of the fire, as it were gleaming metal. 5 And from the midst of it came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had a human likeness, 6but each had four faces, and each of them had four wings. 7 Their legs were straight, and the soles of their feet were like the sole of a calf’s foot. And they sparkled like burnished bronze. 8 Under their wings on their four sides they had human hands. And the four had their faces and their wings thus: 9 their wings touched one another. Each one of them went straight forward, without turning as they went. 10 As for the likeness of their faces, each had a human face. The four had the face of a lion on the right side, the four had the face of an ox on the left side, and the four had the face of an eagle. 11 Such were their faces. And their wings were spread out above. Each creature had two wings, each of which touched the wing of another, while two covered their bodies. 12And each went straight forward. Wherever the spirit would go, they went, without turning as they went. 13 As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, like the appearance of torches moving to and fro among the living creatures. And the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning. 14And the living creatures darted to and fro, like the appearance of a flash of lightning.
15 Now as I looked at the living creatures, I saw a wheel on the earth beside the living creatures, one for each of the four of them. 16 As for the appearance of the wheels and their construction: their appearance was like the gleaming of beryl. And the four had the same likeness, their appearance and construction being as it were a wheel within a wheel. 17 When they went, they went in any of their four directions without turning as they went. 18 And their rims were tall and awesome, and the rims of all four were full of eyes all around. 19 And when the living creatures went, the wheels went beside them; and when the living creatures rose from the earth, the wheels rose. 20 Wherever the spirit wanted to go, they went, and the wheels rose along with them, for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels. 21 When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those rose from the earth, the wheels rose along with them, for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels.
22 Over the heads of the living creatures there was the likeness of an expanse, shining like awe-inspiring crystal, spread out above their heads. 23And under the expanse their wings were stretched out straight, one toward another. And each creature had two wings covering its body. 24And when they went, I heard the sound of their wings like the sound of many waters, like the sound of the Almighty, a sound of tumult like the sound of an army. When they stood still, they let down their wings. 25 And there came a voice from above the expanse over their heads. When they stood still, they let down their wings.
26 And above the expanse over their heads there was the likeness of a throne, in appearance like sapphire; and seated above the likeness of a throne was a likeness with a human appearance. 27 And upward from what had the appearance of his waist I saw as it were gleaming metal, like the appearance of fire enclosed all around. And downward from what had the appearance of his waist I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and there was brightness around him. 28 Like the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud on the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness all around.
Such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. And when I saw it, I fell on my face, and I heard the voice of one speaking.
And with this description, we meet not a stodgy God. Not an easily understood Creator. Not a God in a sealable box we can store away. A very intelligent and complex Throne. Our God, who says to John, stand up, you are fine, you are safe.
You are in Heaven and from Your House and Your Throne, we know You are close. You know our prayers as well for the Holy Spirit living in those who know in their heart Jesus is Lord. Just as Your Spirit was flame over Your Disciples, we have part of the Fire of the Holy Spirit in us. Living God, living within us.
We pray for our health, our Joy in You, for our cares, for the people we Love. For the people you have given us in our lives - we will pray for them.
Who art in Heaven,
Holy is Your Name,
Your Kingdom come,
Your Will be done on earth as in Heaven.
Give us this day!
Our daily Living Bread.
Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
Deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the Kingdom, Power and Glory - Forever and ever.
Amen as Jesus prays with us. Amen.
Thank You for covering us Jesus. Amen.
