 PSA 30:5b Weeping may last for the night, But a shout of joy comes in the morning.

NUM 20:6 Then Moses and Aaron came in from the presence of the assembly to the doorway of the tent of meeting, and fell on their faces. Then the glory of the Lord appeared to them;

It wasn't until Moses and Aaron fell on their faces, which was an expression of their attitude of prostration or worshipping God, that they saw and experienced the glory of the Lord.

"fell on the face" signified the attitude of humility that a believer has toward God or allowing them to do so.

 In 1CH 29:20 Then David said to all the assembly, "Now bless the Lord your God." And all the assembly blessed the Lord, the God of their fathers, and bowed low and did homage to the Lord and to the king.

Here we see "fallen on the face" as an expression of love and respect toward the Lord.

Even in heaven, angels and humans bow down before the Lord in Rev 7:11, which is where we see that in heaven or the eternal state, "fallen on your face" is a sign of respect .

In Mat 2:11, we learn that "fallen on the face" is a recognition of TLJC as the Messiah.

"fallen on your face" was a sign of honor and respect.

Because He is omniscient - He knows what is best for those who trust in Him!

As TLJC said to Peter one day in Joh 13:7, "what I do you do not realize now, but you shall understand hereafter."

As the apostle Paul said in Rom 11:33 "Oh,the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable are His ways."

It is God's intention that every believer come to understand everything in the Bible in His time for you to understand.

DEU 29:29 "The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and our children forever."

Rom 8:28 "And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose."

Prin: For the mature believer, in areas of his life where others are disturbed and freaking out, in those same areas he has a R.M.A.

Knowing the character and nature o of God and His omniscience is the daily understanding that no matter what a day may bring, whether adversity or prosperity, there's a divine purpose for it.

Knowing everything He has also provided from His omnipotence, a divine solution for every problem.

This is why I said to you that "Knowing the fact that God has omniscience is very comforting to the believer who truly loves God!"

Omnipotence, which means that all three members of the court have the power to execute all sentences, all judgments of the court.

The only thing that hinders a judgment from being carried out is that a believer gets in the way through reaction, seeking revenge, arrogance sins, emotional sins, lust to hurt others.

Omnipotence means that God is all powerful and limitless in ability. This is why He is called God almighty as in Gen 17:1.

We are also told that nothing is too difficult for Him, Gen 18:14.

ISA 40:26 lift up your eyes on high and see who has created these stars, the One who leads forth their host by number, He calls them all by name; because of the greatness of His might and the strength of His power not one of them is missing.

JER 27:5 "I have made the earth, the men and the beasts which are on the face of the earth by My great power and by My outstretched arm, and I will give it to the one who is pleasing in My sight."

As HEB 1:3 says "He upholds all things by the word of His power".

This power is also used by God to keep the believer safe for Him forever as in 1Pe 1:5, "You are protected by the power of God"

 You must understand that all that happens is not from the power of God.

 God has allowed both angels and mankind to possess volition, and both angels and mankind have used that volition in a negative way.

 When we understand the omnipotence of God, we will be assured that "nothing is to hard for Him" as Jer 32:7 states.

MAT 19:26, "with God all things are possible"

Job said after he went through more suffering than anyone alive "I know l can do all things" in Job 42:1.

  1. To the mature believers, God expresses His justice in blessing.
  2. To the carnal or apostate believers He expresses His justice through divine discipline, as in Heb 12:6.

 Omniscience, which means that all of the three judges have known all of the facts of every case from eternity past.

 In Job 37:16, "He is One who is perfect in knowledge"

 God is not limited by time and therefore His knowledge is superimposed over time.

 Whereas, God has never had to learn a thing!

 He has always known everything, every thought, every motive, every event and every action of every person who would ever live!

 Omniscience means that there is nothing in your life that could ever happen that God didn't know about billions and billions of years ago.

Knowing the character of God and His omniscience is the daily understanding that no matter what a day may bring, whether adversity or prosperity, there's a divine purpose for it.

Knowing everything He has also provided from His omnipotence, a divine solution for every problem.

This plan was designed specifically from His omniscience which knew every solution for every problem that you would ever need.

  1. Omniscience tells us that we were known by God in eternity past.
  2. Foreknowledge tells us that we were in the mind of God in eternity past.
  3. Predestination tells us that we were in the plan of God in eternity past.
