Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus,

 The Sovereign Lord God Almighty is Omnipresent, Omnipotent, Omniscient and I am most grateful for the grace, compassion, and faithfulness toward us created in His character/likeness/image (Genesis 1:26-27). That is to say, despite our stiff-necked, hardheaded, obstinacy in regard to God’s commands or advice or instruction, I am overwhelmed that God never goes back on His Word. Rather, God is exceedingly patient with us. We believe and speak that GOD is Omnipresent yet we beg Him not to pass us by. We believe and speak that GOD is Omniscient yet oftentimes do our own thing irrespective of His warnings. We believe and speak that GOD is Omnipotent yet behave as though it’s imperative that we “help” Him along. For example, upon initiating a covenant with Abram that promised him a nation, the LORD said, “Leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show youGenesis 12:1 (NIV). Yet Abram took Lot with him; it was after Abram and Lot separated or parted company that the LORD spoke to Abram again about the land and his offspring so numerous that none would be able to count (Ge 14:14-17). By Scripture we may know that Lot had to be rescued twice by his uncle. The first time while still named Abram, Melchizedek – priest of the Most High God and king of Salem (translated king of peace [Psalms 110:4; Hebrews 7:3-10] who is Scripturally likened to Yeshua/Jesus) affirmed that Abram’s victory was of the LORD Who Melchizedek named El Elyon – God Most High (Ge 15:19).

Again (between the first and second rescue of Lot), Sarai thought that the LORD Who is Omnipotent needed her help or assistance in bringing forth a son to Abram; hence gave her maid-servant Hagar as a wife that she might conceive. However, after conception was made manifest, Sarai was distraught over her own arrangement. Nevertheless, upon changing Abram’s name to Abraham translated father of many nations, and Sarai’s name to Sarah translated mother of many nations (Ge 17:5,15), the LORD told him that though Ishmael would indeed live under God’s blessing, the covenant would be established with the son through Sarah who was to be named Isaac (Ge 17:18-21). The second rescue of Lot followed Abraham’s Prayer of Intercession pertaining to Sodom and Gomorrah (Ge 18:22-23). I am continually amazed and forever grateful for the patience of Abba Father. For by revelation of the information in God’s Word by the Teaching of the Holy Spirit we may know that only Jesus the Anointed One – the WORD made flesh (John 1:14), walked in perfect obedience to the will of Abba Father for us. All privileges & rights as sons and daughters of Yahweh – The LORD (Ge 2:4; Exodus 6:2-3) are restored by the blood of Jesus. Every benefit of which we may now partake is by the finished work of Christ Jesus. The riches of the glory of God’s inheritance among the saints, and His power in us who believe (Acts 26:18; Ephesians 1:18-19) are through the Lord Jesus. We are reconciled unto the Family of El Shaddai – God Almighty (Ge 17:1; Psalm 91:1) – our ever faithful, gracious, compassionate God Who is Love, and Whose Word never returns void (Ex 34:6; Dt 7:9; 2Sa 22:26; Psalm 33:4; Jonah 4:2; Matthew 9:36; 1Co 1:9; 2Co 1:3,18; Rev 19:11; 1Jn 4:16; Isaiah 55:11) by the Blood.

 Speak the promise . . . Harriet
