When God Comes Down

August 04, 2017
By Pastor Allen

Isaiah 64:1 says, "Oh God won't you rend the heavens and come down."  Isaiah wants God to show Himself.  "Prove yourself God.  Show 'em what your made of.  Be God in a real and tangible way."  That's our cry too at times when we are desperate or feel helpless.  I'm sure at one time or another, we have all asked God to come down and make everything all right.

But do we know what we're asking?  What would it mean for a holy, righteous, omniscient, omnipotent God to enter into our existence?  Are we ready to be exposed?  Are we innocent of the injustice that we are asking God to fix?  He did come down once before under the radar and provided salvation for us.  The next time He comes, it will be with power and visible, tangible evidence.

How can we be ready?  Our passages this Sunday are Isaiah 64:1-12; Psalm 107:1-22 and John 2:1-12.  I hope we will be ready to hear what God has to say to us through His Word.
