Our Timeless Creator

Revealed by His Glory

God’s Spoiled and Ungrateful Children | Message 11

This message is to remind us of how blessed we are. It is also a reminder that what God has blessed us with was not to spoil us, but an opportunity to love and appreciate Him more for it.

In a conversation with an extremely wealthy man, a less successful man said, I have more than you do, to which the richer man replied, I know your holdings, how can you say that, the reply was simple, I have enough, and you don’t.

A major flaw in mankind is, always wanting more. Even with things we already have we want better ones. From phones to refrigerators, from cars to houses we want more bells and whistles. It’s as though no matter how much we get, we will always want a better one.

In Luke chapter 12, we are cautioned that, the more we have the more we will be accountable for, but we continue to ask for more. In the book of Jeremiah we are warned not to glory in our blessings, successes or talents that God provides us with, but still the more we have the better we feel about ourselves.

Video Slideshow

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.

For more information, click here for full details about the slideshow.
