The lesson on May 16, 2010 was the second in the study series “From the Beginning” which covered the scripture reading in Psalms 104:1-9 KJV “1 Bless the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty. 2 Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain: 3 Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind: 4 Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire: 5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever. 6 Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains. 7 At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away. 8 They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them. 9 Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.” This lesson starts with challenging us to read the bible. As Christians, the greatest need we have is to get to know God. We do that by reading his word. “If you don’t know, you aint gonna grow. If we are to grow, you have got to know.” Remember after the Lord was raised, he appeared unto two men expounding to them out of the scriptures and when they realized who it was they said in Luke 24:32 KJV “…Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?” We learn in Revelation 4:11 KJV that “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.” When reading Psalms 104: 1-2 we see God being clothed in honor and majesty covering Himself with light… The Apostle Paul speaks about Gods invisibilty and being clothed in light in 1 Timothy 6:14-16 KJV “14 That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: 15 Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; 16 Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.” The end of this lesson looks at Genesis 1:1-13 where we read about the first three days of re-creation. Success and failure are too important to be left to random chance… they are always determined by our choices. Be sure and listen to all of the lessons in this study.
