God is More Than Amazing
By David J. Stewart | January 2018 | Updated August 2018
Psalms 145:3, “Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.”
I just want to praise the Lord my God and Savior, for He is greater than great, more than amazing, and more wonderful than the human understanding could ever perceive. The psalmist plainly exclaims in our text verse that HIS GREATNESS IS UNSEARCHABLE!!!
We have a Creator whose beauty and magnificence is beyond the scope of mere mortal words. I can only make an utterly feeble attempt to exalt and praise my awesome Creator and Redeemer!!! The words simply don't exist. We all owe God a debt of sincere gratitude that simply cannot be expressed in words. What a precious Savior!!!!!!!
Deuteronomy 5:24, “And ye said, Behold, the LORD our God hath shewed us his glory and his greatness, and we have heard his voice out of the midst of the fire: we have seen this day that God doth talk with man, and he liveth.”
God is truly an amazing God, and more than amazing!!! Mark 5:20, “And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.”
We are so utterly undeserving of God's abundant blessings. Psalms 145:9, “The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.” The man with no shoes ought to be thankful when he considers the man with no legs. The person with no home ought to be thankful for a dry place to sleep. The man with many problems ought to rejoice that he is not burning forever in the tormentuous fires of a burning Hell. When I start to become discouraged, I am remind of people who are quadriplegic, unable to move either of their arms or legs, crippled in a wheelchair for the rest of their life. It takes me about 10 seconds to get over my melancholy. I thank God that I can get up on my own out of bed each day. I thank God that I can bathe myself, feed myself and take care of myself. There are millions of people around the world who would give anything just to be able to walk upon their own two feet, but they cannot. Take care of your health my friend. It is very true that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
God is more than amazing!!! Most people (including Christian believers) don't thank and praise God enough. The first thing I purpose to do each morning when I awake is to sincerely thank God for another day, and tell Him that I love Him dearly. Those two things are really important. God created man in His image. God needs to be praised and told that we love Him. God loves to be bragged on. The first thing that Jesus taught His disciples to pray are the words, “HALLOWED BE THY NAME!” Matthew 6:9, “After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.” Don't miss that truth! God loves to be bragged on! Praise is bragging on God for WHAT HE DOES; Worship is bragging on God for WHO HE IS. The blessed Father, Son and Holy Spirit in Heaven are worthy of all our worship, praise and admiration.
There is only one God. Deuteronomy 6:4-5, “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.” But God exists in the form of a Godhead (aka, Trinity). Matthew 28:19-20, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” The Triune nature of God is a fundamental doctrine of the Christian faith. The Scriptures make clear that God the Son sits on a separate physical throne, to the right of His Father. Colossians 3:1, “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.”
So we see that there is one God, who exists in three distinctive persons, which form the Godhead. Colossians 2:8-9, “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.” When you met Jesus upon the earth, you met the Godhead incarnate, that is, the Godhead manifest in the flesh. What an amazing truth! What an omnipotent God!!!
One thing that I have plainly noticed in today's counterfeit emerging church, is a famine of Bible doctrine. The Word of God foretold of this famine of truth in the last days. Amos 8:11, “Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD.” I heard Dr. Gail Riplinger say something amazing recently, and she is so right. She said that the Devil's crowd are “SECULARIZING THE BIBLE!” That is exactly what they are doing. Five times in the New Testament Jesus is called the only “begotten” Son of God. Those five times are John 1:14; John 1:18; John 3:16; John 3:18; and 1 John 4:9. I just checked, which you can do for yourself here, to see if the New International Version (NIV) removed the word begotten, and sure enough they did, from ALL FIVE REFERENCES! Ladies and gentlemen, the satanic publishers of the NIV (it should be called the “Non Inspired Version”) have removed every mention of Jesus being the only “BEGOTTEN” Son of God, which is a direct, blatant and malicious attack against His virgin birth and deity!
God is truly more than amazing, and I praise Him for all that He is and does. Thank God for keeping His solemn promise in Psalms 12:6-7 to preserve His pure Word unto every generation and forever. Thank God for keeping His solemn promise to give us eternal life (Titus 1:2) by faith alone in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. When I look at the stars, innumerable by human detection, I am more than amazed at God's greatness!!! When I attempt to consider all that God does and maintains in creation, my small brain cannot even begin to grasp such omnipotence. I am greatly humbled when I pause to consider that God doesn't expect me to understand everything, but only to have faith in Him. Micah 6:8, “He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?”

Memorable Words of Wisdom...
Life is not made by the dreams that you dream, but by the choices that you make.
Never reject those who love, care and try to reach out to you, because one day you'll realize you lost the moon while counting the stars!
Don't look for someone who will solve all your problems, look for someone who won't let you face them alone.
To fall in love is by chance;
To love is a choice;
To fall out of love is a choice too;
You are free to choose, but you are not free from the consequences of your choice.
Sometimes we create our own heartbreaks through expectations.
Never chase love, affection or attention. If it isn't given freely by another person, it isn't worth having.
Never apologize for having high standards. People who really want to be in your life will rise up to them. Stand up for what is right even if you're standing alone!
Never blame anyone in your life...
Good people give you happiness.
Bad people give you experience.
The worst people give you a lesson.
And the best people give you memories. Everybody you have ever met in your life was brought to you for a reason.
I have come to understand that we do not love people because they are beautiful, but people become beautiful because we love them. We do not love people because they are perfect, but love propels us to see them as perfect. Love changes the way we view everything in this life. It compels us to think different, talk different, act different and live different. There is no pain that love can not heal, no obstacle that it can not overcome, no weakness that it can not strengthen, no darkness that it cannot lighten up, no shortcoming that it cannot overlook, no wrong that it cannot right, and no brokenheart that it cannot mend. The more loving we are, the more Christlike we become. The world does not really understand the real meaning of love, because they do not know the One that is Love. Let's live in the atmosphere of love every single day of our lives, not just once in a year.

You Can Still Do What You Always Could Do
(MP3, Dr. Jack Hyles; A pastor is a position, not a calling. You can forfeit a position, but never your calling to preach!)
John 15:22, “If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.”
Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith.
"So foolish was I, and ignorant..." (Psalm 73:22)
God will not save anyone who is trying to be saved, He will only save those who are trusting to be saved.
“A man doesn't get better to get saved; he gets saved to get better.”
—Pastor Curtis Hutson (1934-1995), a quote from the excellent sermon, “Salvation Crystal Clear.”
has a special rebuke, again and again and again in the Bible,
toward those people who keep their neutrality in the work of God!”
—SOURCE: Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001), a quote from the needful and precious MP3 sermon titled: “Where Were You In The Battle?”
Religion is man trying to reach God through human effort, but Christianity is God trying to reach man by the sacrifice of His only begotten Son on the cross.
don't have to fall apart just because the world falls apart!”
—an excellent quote by Pastor Ralph “Yankee” Arnold from his awesome MP3 sermon called, “THE CALL TO SUFFER.”
It is tragic, but true, that the true New Testament church is being driven underground in America. Faithful believers like me, who expose the Alexandrian counterfeit Bible versions, and expose false prophets like Dr. John MacArthur, and refute the false gospel of Lordship Salvation, are forced out of the churches as troublemakers. It is crazy!!! Churches are so backslidden and apostate, that they don't even realize a person who contends for the faith. It's bizarre, but Christianity is being driven underground. On the face of things in Europe and the United States, they look like Christian nations, there are plenty of churches, but when one digs deeper, when one really IS a Christian, and wishes to make a stand for the Christian faith, one quickly finds apostasy and rejection.
Brother Tom Stegall's book, Must Faith Endure:
However, many today misunderstand this marvelous truth and say in effect, “Yes, Christ can save you, but your faith must keep holding on to Christ in order for you to reach heaven.” According to this approach, Christ really doesn't save a person; they save themselves. With this approach, a person is not really saved by faith in Christ, but ultimately by faith in their faith, as they think it is their “faithfulness” to Christ which will ultimately bring them eternal life. The great Bible teacher of the past, Harry Ironside, addressed this very problem as he answered the objection: “But must I not hold on to the end if I would be saved at last?”
The Incompatibility Of False Teaching On Repentance With The Gospel Of Grace
“Repentance don't save you! Calling on the Lord don't save you!
You know what saves you? Receiving
what Christ done for you on the cross!” —Pastor Danny Castle, a quote from the needful MP3 sermon, “WHY THERE'S A HELL.”
There's two days you should never worry about—yesterday and tomorrow! You can't change them. Fight today's battles today! Worry is the end of faith and faith is the end of worry! The second I start trusting the Lord, I quit worrying; and the second I start worrying, I quit trusting the Lord. Worry is not trusting God. I just feel like, some of you may be just worrying yourself sick, over stuff that you can't change it a bit. You know what you need to do—put it into God's hands! Don't be guilty of the sin that most Christians commit. (awesome quotes from Pastor Danny Castle's helpful sermon titled, “The Sin That Most Christians Commit.”
“You say, 'Preacher are you worried about the depression?' No, I'm worried about the prosperity!” —Dr. Jack Hyles; a quote from the classic MP3 sermon, “You Must Go Through Arabia.”
“It's time that God's people met with God!” —Dr. Jack Hyles; a quote from, “You Must Go Through Arabia.”
“We've got churches, lots of them. We've got preachers, seminaries, and they are turning out preachers and putting them into little theological molds and keeping them there until they get cold enough to practice preaching.” —Billy Sunday, “Criticism and Criticism” (chapter 18), from his biography by William T. Ellis titled, “Billy Sunday: The Man And His Message.”
Psalms 10:4, “The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.”
Isaiah 35:4, “Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.”
“Every Christian should be working as hard to present the gospel, as Satan is to prevent the gospel.” (Pastor Max D. Younce (from the sermon, 'THE TWO WITNESSES - PART 2').
world is going to Hell 90 mph, you better jump into the arms of Jesus,
while you've got a chance!”

The King James Bible IS Inspired!
“The Bible is not the inspired, inerrant and 100% historically true words of God. ... If we would destroy the Christian religion, we must first of all destroy man’s belief in the Bible.” —Voltaire (French philosopher and former unbeliever 1694-1778 - He now knows better [in Hell])
As one liberal theologian pointed out in his review of Harold Lindsell’s,
The Battle for the Bible, the only real difference between the conservative
and liberal positions on the Bible is that the conservatives say the Bible
USED TO BE inspired and inerrant, whereas the liberal says it NEVER WAS
inspired or inerrant. BOTH positions agree that the Bible IS NOT NOW
inspired or inerrant.
As brother Daryl Coats so aptly says in his article The Two Lies: "If the Bible was inspired only in the original manuscripts, no one in the entire history of the world has ever had an inspired Bible. The original autographs of Job and the books of Moses had disappeared more than a thousand years before the first book of the New Testament was written, so no one has ever owned a complete Bible made up of the 'divine originals.' Nor, has anyone ever owned a complete New Testament made up of 'inspired originals,' because the originals were distributed among more than a dozen individuals and local churches."
“There is power in this
Gospel message. Most people just don't know how to
present it... The clarity of the Gospel is what makes it easy for them to believe.”
—Pastor Yankee Arnold, a precious quote from the excellent MP3 sermon titled, “WHY GRACE CAN SAVE THE WORST MAN!”
“No one's ever saved by cheap grace, they're saved by priceless amazing grace! We have a miracle salvation provided and preserved by God Himself. Let's give out the Good News of this salvation, simply and faithfully for His glory. Salvation is not cheap. God sent His Son to pay for our sins. It wasn't cheap—very expensive—He just made it free. And when you and I try to add one work to it, we cheapen it! That's when you cheapen it, when you think that it wasn't enough, I've got to add something to it!” —Pastor Yankee Arnold, a precious quote from the excellent MP3 sermon titled, “CAUGHT BETWEEN GRACE AND WORKS!” | VIDEO | MORE HELPFUL SERMONS

“Nothing in my future can ever affect the salvation that I have... Once you trust the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior, you are eternally secure!” —Pastor Hank Lindstrom (1940-2008), a quote from the classic MP3 sermon titled, “How Permanent Is Your Salvation?”
“Salvation is based upon purely what Jesus Christ has done. And if you've trusted Jesus Christ here, you're saved forever! Nothing in your life, nothing in your death, angels, principalities, nothing—nothing in your future—could ever undo that relationship that has been made when you trusted Jesus Christ as Savior. And there are many people who are confused over this whole thing.” —Pastor Hank Lindstrom (1940-2008), a quote from the classic MP3 sermon titled, “How Permanent Is Your Salvation?”
“There are many people who name the name of Jesus Christ, who are not saved, because they're trusting in living the Christian life, or in their works, or in some efforts that they're doing, in order to obtain their salvation.” —Pastor Hank Lindstrom (1940-2008), a quote from the classic MP3 sermon titled, “How Permanent Is Your Salvation?”

Scriptures by Dr. Gail Riplinger, showing, why some great men are deceived...
Hosea 7:13, “Woe unto them! for they have fled from me: destruction unto them! because they have transgressed against me: though I have redeemed them, yet they have spoken lies against me.”
Ecclesiastes 3:16-17, “And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there. I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.”
Job 32:4-9, “Now Elihu had waited till Job had spoken, because they were elder than he. And Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite answered and said, I am young, and ye are very old; wherefore I was afraid, and durst not shew you mine opinion. I said, Days should speak, and multitude of years should teach wisdom. But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding. Great men are not always wise: neither do the aged understand judgment.”
Jeremiah 5:5, “I will get me unto the great men, and will speak unto them; for they have known the way of the LORD, and the judgment of their God: but these have altogether broken the yoke, and burst the bonds.”

“Do you know the more righteous you try to live, the ungodly people are not impressed with it, don't care for it, and totally, truly, despise you for doing it! The more right you try to do, the more you're despised for doing so! There are people who want to justify sin in the world, and you and I that live right are a rebuke to them for such!” —Pastor Ralph "Yankee" Arnold, from the MP3 sermon, "As it Was So shall It Be."
