Our Timeless CreatorRevealed by His Glory
God is Greater Than What He Does | Message 4 | When Jesus Healed Ten Lepers
This Message considers why nine of the ten lepers who were healed completely missed the glory of God, even as the tenth one glorified God in their presence. They had heard him proclaim with a loud voice and likely watched him go to Jesus and fall on his knees but missed out on what Jesus was thinking when he said, “Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?” This is like when Jesus calmed the storm and then asked, “Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?” (See Mark 4:36-41) When Jesus healed ten lepers and asks a question he already knows the answer, so why does he ask? So we will think about how we would answer the question just as if he were asking us.
This message considers how elusive glorifying God is and distinguishes between service, thankfulness and giving God glory.

This video presentation is similar to a screen saver that automatically advances with celestial images of the heavens from the Hubble, NASA, STScI and James Webb sites. They all have an accompanying scripture, or portions which can help illustrate Psalm 19:1 “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork”.
This series on the Glory of God was originally introduced with only ten Hubble slides shown on a large screen while fifteen verses were being read. It lasted about ten minutes. When completed there will be around 400 images in the Video Slideshow with related scriptures.
