Jude 25b Give God Glory, Majesty, Power & Authority

©2019 WF Cobb Truthbase.net DailyTruthbase.blogspot

25 To God our Savior, Who alone is wise, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever. Amen.

 I. How can we give God what He already has?

 We Ascribe, Attribute or Acknowledge characteristics to God by having our God-view be our World-view, Words, and Actions

Ascribe Greatness Dt 32:3 For I proclaim the name of the LORD: Ascribe (attribute source) greatness to our God.

4 He is the Rock, His work is perfect; For all His ways are justice, A God of truth and without injustice; Righteous and upright is He.

He is our All in All  Col 1:15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers.

 All things were created thru Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. 18 And He is the Head of the Body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.

II. The way we Respond to God Reveals what we think of Him (words cheap; acts costly) [Worship=Response to Revelation]

A. Only Savior and Lord!  1Tim 2:5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,

Acts 4:12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.

Isa 43:10 You are My witnesses...My servant whom I have chosen, that you may know and believe Me; and understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God created, Nor shall there be after Me. 11 I, even I, I am the LORD, and besides Me there is no savior.

We don't look to anything created (person or job or substance or diversion) for our deliverance from difficulties

B. Only Wise -His way is the only sane way. He alone has the perspective and power to chose the right/objectives ends and means of attaining them

Rev 5:12 Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive/(tribute) power and riches, wisdom, strength, honor and glory and blessing!

C. Glory worthy The inherent light/energy-power of God is manifested/revealed in His works and dealings with His creation

Rev 4:11 You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and by/for Your pleasure/will they exist and were created."      Rev 5:12 saying with a loud voice: "Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing!"

Ps 98:2 bless His name; Proclaim the good news of His salvation  3 Declare His glory..His wonders among all peoples. 4 For LORD is great and greatly to be praised; He is to be feared above all gods. 6 Honor and majesty are before Him; Strength and beauty are in His sanctuary. 7 Give to LORD glory and strength. 8 Give to the LORD the glory due His name; bring an offering, 9 worship the LORD in the beauty/attire of holiness! Tremble before Him, all the earth. 10 say "The LORD reigns; He shall judge the peoples righteously."

11 rejoice.. glad..joyful 13  For He is coming, to judge earth with righteousness, And the peoples with His truth.

Make God look good Mt 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven

D. Majesty KJV Exceedingly Magnifical   1Chron 29:11 Yours, O LORD, is the greatnessthe power/(might of sun), the glory, the victory/(perpetuity), and the majesty/Ps 145:5): for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is Yours; Yours is the kingdom, O LORD You are exalted/(reflexive) as Head above all 12 Both riches and honor come from You, and You reign over all. In Your hand is power/(plagues-Caleb) and might...to make great and to give strength to all. 14 For all things come from You, of Your own we have given

Ps 145:4 praise..declare works 5 meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty, and on Your wondrous works..greatness..goodness

E. Power kratosmight(inherent?)/ischus; working/energia; power-strength-ability/dunamis; dominion-gov't-rule/exousia-kurios

F.  Worthy of  Authority/rule exousia -  right to rule (everything – including us)  

Rev 5:9 "You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open its seals (title deed to earth); for You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, 10 And have made us kings and priests to our God; and we shall reign on the earth. " 12 saying with a loud voice: " Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing!" 13 And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying "Blessing and honor and glory and power Be to Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and ever (to the Ages of the Ages)!"

Dan 4:37 I Neb praise, extol and honor the King of heaven, works are truthways just: those that walk in pride he is able/d to abase
