The Perfect Timing of The Perfect God. Pastor Joe Sugrue.
Friday, September 29, 2006
God can never be wrong, only our perception of what is happening can be wrong.
God always does a right thing in a right way. We know this to be true because He is perfect integrity.
The integrity of God is made up of His Righteousness and Justice. Therefore, everything God does is right and is fair.
PSA 89:14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Thy throne;
PSA 89:14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Thy throne; Lovingkindness and truth go before Thee.
Chesedh = steadfast love, kindness, mercy, or grace.
Righteousness and Justice are the foundation of God’s throne and from that throne emanates grace and truth (doctrine).
The greatest thing that God ever did for us was completed in eternity past but not executed until His perfect time.
Blessings in life have already been determined by God, but the execution of those blessings are in the perfect timing of God.
The first blessing He gave you was the gift of His Son. The blessing itself was in the mind of God in eternity past.
First mention principle: God sets up a pattern or a MO for the way He will continue this particular work.
All blessings from God to you were developed in eternity past, but they will subsequently be distributed at the exact proper time.
The blessing of the Savior was given in eternity past, but the blessing of His first incarnation did not happen until the perfect timing of God the Father.
MAT 2:7 Then Herod secretly called the magi, and ascertained from them the time the star appeared.
First mention principle of the ultimate blessing: God provides the actual blessing in EP, but gives that blessing at His perfect time.
His blueprint has always been truth or doctrine.
He has always had the “power” to function in grace and truth and love while on His foundation of His Righteousness and Justice. This is His omnipotence.
PSA 115:3 But our God is in the heavens; He does whatever He pleases.
His motivation for what He does has always been love.
JOH 3:16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.
No circumstance has ever caught Him by surprise. In fact, He’s seen everything already happen in eternity past. We call this His omniscience.
Nothing is hidden from God. No creature can hide from Him and do anything in secret. This is His omnipresence.
Nor is anything a problem for God because something happened when He wasn’t around. God has forever existed.
He has never had a beginning and will never have an end. We call this His eternal life.
DEU 33:27 The eternal God is a dwelling place, And underneath are the everlasting arms;
He is eternal, and simply by the fact that He invented time must mean that He is outside of it.
Every moment from the beginning of time to its end is present for Him. Therefore He has had all eternity to listen to all prayers, and eternity is big.
When mistakes are made by us, He has all of eternity to redirect us, to bring in millions of circumstances that will get us back on the right road and back into the same exam that we failed last year.
HEB 12:2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Being Eternal Life, God has infinite time to spend in giving each of us His 100% of His attention and He does so for our benefit only.
But when we are out of God’s timing by means of sin or human good, we are writing our own story, which will be flat, boring, and without a happy ending.
