Welcome to worship and the word with pastor. We recently started a series called living in his presence where Pastor Robert has been discussing how we can tune into and live in God's presence. Every specifically through worship. While today's message is about God's greatest desire so let's join Pastor to continue our series called living in his presence. So if you can turn the one Scripture this week. Genesis chapter 1 and will actually get a verse in chapter 2.
Also with Genesis chapter 1 is a list might want to talk about his desire for, but his presence his instruments now or in the lot. His desire does God who is completely self-sufficient. Self existed self-sustaining.
Does God have a desire and if he does, what is his desire. I am a a bottom-line person. There are two types of people in the world in my opinion bottom-line people and beat around the bush people and it's funny and if you don't know it.
If your bottom-line person or not you are you are a beat around the bush person we know who we are in the reader a bottom-line person or if your marriage you're married the bottom one person one another. So the reason I say that is I like to think this way once God's bottom-line.
What's the bottom line of the Bible. And so we want to talk about that and I think the best way to figure out his desire is bottom-line is go back to Genesis 153 point source again that I was number one God made me from him are another way to say would be out of him right so I'm going to make another statement about this and I tried to you know be a grammarian but there there and there is a way to say this grammatically correct, but it doesn't make any sense. So it's not grammatically correct but is theologically correct. Okay, when God wanted something in the beginning when he was creating and Making Things Way, God wanted something he spoke to what he wanted. Yet, whatever was he was creating to be made out are made from money say that one more time when God wanted something really wanted plants or trees or animals.
He spoke to what he wanted to get the put the plan for the animal or whatever to come from to take this a little bit further. Also, he will he's pumped what he wanted, yet not only to come out of, but to be sustained by, and then to return to now. I said when God was creating and making let me explain that because many people never understood that God created three things and made some things to hate the things he created theologically when you create something you form something out of nothing. When you make something you form something out of something else that this might disappoint you little bit you actually don't create anything you like things now we have some creative tendencies and abilities that were made by creative God.
But when we really can't create something why God created things. In other words, we can make something out of nothing, like if I came up your house and you know you do pottery and you said Camille's eyes that look at this base. I created this makes no you made the rights you started with Clay and you molded it into a bank you made getting create.
You did not say let there be a place when there was a Vegas okay didn't do that. But God did it.
God said, let there be light and there was one thing, so God created things and it makes me think. So when he made things it's very very important for you to catch this principle when God made things he spoke to what he wanted it.
Whatever he was making to come from to be sustained by that which it came out of and then returned to that. So let me give you some examples like Genesis 1 verse 11 then God said, let the earth bring forth will come Michael's work earth bring forth, let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, the fruit tree that yields fruit according Scott.so here is what God say, let the earth bring forth when we say another way.
He says let all the things, let there be light. In essence, he was saying why come forth and it came forth in this sentence he say earth bring forth. Let the report God's sight bring forth plants and trees and grass.
The reason is God did not say let there be trees. They said earth bring forth treats one because he wanted trees to come from dirt, to be sustained by dark and returned the note that you're going to find out just a moment why this is extremely important extreme report verse 20 then God said, let the waters abound with abundance of living creatures, just showing you that showing the BS are sustained by water.
Genesis 124 God said, let the earth bring forth living creatures. So earth bring forth living creatures. Animals come from dirt, sustained by dark and go back to Gert so why am I making such a big deal of this, let me say one more time when God wanted something he spoke to what he wanted it to come from to be sustained by an territory. So why is that such a big deal. Listen carefully, because when God wanted us. He spoke to himself. Her whatever he spoke to his wife. He wanted what he was making to come from to be sustained by the following because it's better than erecting to be sustained by and to return to come out to be sustained onto retarded verse 26 then God said, let McMahon make not create night man. So we came from something let us make man in our image, according are like us and we came from God or sustained by God to go back.now what you might say it okay when I got will probably because it says that God formed man of the dust of the ground so did he come from dirt and we go back to dirt were sustained by dirt and listen. God made my body my body came from dirt is sustained by dirt and goes back to dirt, but my spirit came from God is sustained by God and goes back to God. See my body just sustained by dirt. My body is sustained by fruits and vegetables, and ice cream and things come from dirt so plants come from dirt and sustained by dirt and the go back to that one got that that what would happen if a plant said to the dirt. I'm going out. I'm going to make it on my own.
What what would happen.man said the God I'm pulling out. I'm going to make it on my own. God said that you do you'll die for body Sendai because her body strength meter or sustained by dirt go back to her death entered and man begin to die in our lifetimes got shorter and shorter.
Physically, but is our spiritual got up and asked that might by similars I say why did Natalie Doris Dotson Eagle died. They did not, that spiritually is just couple scriptures in Ephesians 21, and you may alive made alive, who were there in trespasses and sins. John Tintin, we focus on the second part of the verse I come that they may have life. I may have it more abundantly.
Watch the first part of earth come that they may have life warning in Lala until Jesus redeemed us were dead, so God may be from him. Here's number two God made me like him in his image and his like yes so God made me like him. So the bottom line person trying to figure out if God has a desire what is is desire. So I when you think about this, that God made someone just like he is Adam and he had to remember what was about to leave just before the CN before the fall. So Adam has no impure thoughts he has no impure desire but God makes a replica of himself, and though the one that he makes that God makes that's exactly like he is has a desire of the sojourner on God's desire is and yet he made a mirror image of himself and the one that he made had a desire to look at this Genesis to verse 10.
So Adam gave names to all cattle to the birds of the air and to every beast of the field. I watch carefully your Bibles, but but is it saying that, but for Adam there was not found there was not found a helper comparable. This is this is the reward of companion.
So we said companion comparable companion for him were comparable to him that line with the Bible say that SS made the most part, but wanting the same animals. He didn't find one that could be a companion. Why do you say that it because it's possible that something like this happens possible that Adam is made to fly God has not seen. No single is no impure desire. Visitors are completely pure and goes to God.
In essence, he says something like this. You love the dog you love all everything but I have a desire by don't know how to express that only what it is but I want something I'm downloading your walking home you, my mom and I'm I won't somehow know what I won't. So God says well I generally six days and had one time and I didn't have time to name all the animals so wanted to name the animals. And while you're doing that.
See if you like any of and Wally's naming the animals he goes to sleep right what happened when he was asleep.that's really about forms E. So when Adam writes that he's been naming animals looking for companion when he wakes up, there's this new animal later and he says will have to got her name because you don't know what an OLD man actually means from man out of everything out of God you came out of man. So, out of God's will seek out that's that's what the word woman out of so I like the room opens Roman lover look at what did God know or don't follow me. This is really really good. How did God know that the only thing that would satisfy the desire of Adams part was the bride how to God. Know that because God has his things are. And remember, CN has not does not enter the world yet, but not eat the fruit so Adam's desire was to he wanted a bride and God knew that because he has the same desire.
See, God created you in his image, which means he pretty with the will, because God has a will and love is a choice and when you talk about a companion you want someone to choose to love you not to have to write to God. He could've created robots and then we walked and said we love God, but women love right to I got up at they got choose to love sacred rights not love if you know duct tape your wife to the chair and study my development to policy out.
Let me know. Also, tell everybody ago the project. If the hammer son so you say love is a choice. So God made me from him so I would come from you and be sustained by him go back to you in any way me in his image.
So I have the same desire that he has finally his desire is his desires bride. Here's the third thing was about love is a choice. God made me to love him now is my choice for God begged me to love and were talking about living in his presence. I'm telling you that the best way to live in his presence is to live a lifestyle of worship maybe never connected the dots.
This way, but worship is expressing love.
That's what this is crazy in your expressing love him when you cite. Thank you for sending your son from I love you God your expressing love.
So you it's like a man saying his wife. I love you that there's no one I'd rather be with you I would die that you can lift your legs expressing up. That's maybe never seen worship and praise. That way, but that's that's what this and what you understand what God is that anytime you give to God, you will receive back the stresses nature me if you if you say to God, I love you. This site I love you too. There's no one I'd rather be with you. There's no one there to be with you, I die. So the idea I did. God. So the following God's grace desires you desire.
You that you would choose to love him and there's a verse that I think is the most repeated phrase in the Bible that there may be more repeated phrase. I don't know what but you start seeing it as you're going to the Bible 3000 year just constantly and sometimes in 12 or 24 days so I want to show you this thing.
I will see if you get Skype what God's desires. Exodus 67 I will take you as my people and I will be your God. Leviticus 2612 I will walk among you and be your God and you shall be my people. Jeremiah 723 but this is what I command and save obey my voice and I will be your God and you shall be my people.
Jeremiah 11 for so shall you be my people and I will be your God. Jeremiah 24 seven. Then I will give them a heart to know me that I am the Lord, and they shall be my people and I will be there God. Jeremiah 3022 you shall be my people and I will be your God. Jeremiah 31, 33, I will be there God and they shall be my people.
Ezekiel 1120, that they may walk in my statutes and keep my judgments, and and they shall be my people and I will be there God. Ezekiel 1411 that the house of Israel may no longer spray for me will be profaned anymore with all their transgression, but that they may be my people and I may be there God.
Ezekiel 3628 and you shall dwell in the land I gave your father's you shall be my people and I will be your God. Ezekiel 3723 they shall not defile themselves anymore with your idols know what their detestable things, nor with any of their transgression, but I will deliver them from all their dwelling places in which they have sent. I will place them and they shall be my people and I will be there God 3727 my tabernacle also shall be with him. Indeed, I will be there God and they will be my people. Hosea 2223. Speaking specifically to Gentiles and I will say to those who were not my people. You are my people, and they shall say you are my God Zachariah 88. Speaking specifically to Jews. I will bring them back and they said well the limits of Jerusalem and they shall be my people and I will be there God Zachariah 13 nine they will call my name and I will answer. I will say this is my people, and each one will say the Lord is my God. Second Corinthians 616 I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God and they will be my people. Hebrews I think this is the covenant with the house of his life of those they said the Lord. I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their heart and I will be their God and they shall be my people. Revelation 21 verses one through three I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first seven the first for the past wife. Also, there was no more sea hi John saw the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband heard a loud voice from heaven say, behold, the tabernacle of God is with man, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be people, and God himself will be with them and be their God hold you to be his people to be your God, and let me think about the beginning, let's pretend for a moment pretend that Adam had not been with me when she ate the fruit. Now we know Adam was with her right there with her then stop. It didn't do anything, and a perfect fit about, but let's think about for moment that Adam might've been on the other side of the garden, and even comfort. If that had happened in a conversation like this would have taken place. God would've had to go to Adam and say son I am so sorry to tell you this, but your bride has sickened and she's going to die. And we know that didn't take place with Adam, but it took place, which is because you see when we talk about his desire what do you get someone who has everything what what could God the father give God the son except the right in this conversation had to have taken place. God the father had to go to his son put his hand on his shoulder and say son, I'm so sorry to tell you this, but your bride seemed she's going and you can see Jesus just put his head down heart save that one and then I think the father said something like this. Someone has to think Jesus raised his head back wipe away tears and let it out so that my product we want you to take a moment to think about what pastor and listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying to you if you want to connect with us or check out some of pastor Roberts other messages visit Pastor Robert.com if you haven't already, go follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter so we can be a part of your community.
