Twinkling stars softly speak. The sun rises like an exultant bridegroom or a runner that has just won a race, Psalm 19:5. All around there are witnesses of the Creator speaking in a language that all people understand. “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead,” Romans 1:20.
The conscience given to every man by God speaks of right and wrong and there is a longing for God in the soul like a thirsty heart looking for water, Psalm 42:1. God called Abraham to father a nation and made a covenant with him and his descendants, one of which we become by faith. By them we learn of God’s law, blessing for obedience and miracles of deliverance from evil bondage by the sovereign God.
Reaching for God, the prophets tell us of a coming new covenant so glorious that it dims the glory of the former. It will bring a better sacrifice than the bulls and goats, Hebrews 10:4 of the old covenant and lift that unbearable burden. One day good news came out of Bethlehem. God had come down to us in the person of Jesus Christ, Matthew 1:23. Men said, “We have found him,” John 1:45. Greeks came to the apostles saying, “We would see Jesus,” John 12:21.
We have learned that God hates sin and punishes sin by death but saves sinners. Jesus died for sinners and rose triumphant over sin and death. He returned to the Father and filled 120 believers in Jerusalem with the Holy Ghost and fire and by his power the knowledge of God began its spread “unto the uttermost part of the earth,” Acts 1:8. “But I say, have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world,” Romans 10:18. Jews, gentiles, male, female and all races are finding God and becoming children of Abraham by faith in Jesus, repentance, confession of him, water baptism and the indwelling of the spirit.
Believers are longing to see his face and touch the nail-scarred hands of Jesus. The search will end at the foot of his throne. “God himself shall be with them, and be their God,” Revelation 21:3. “And they shall see his face,” Revelation 22:4.
