Is God Like the Weather?

IMG_0052_SnapseedDoes our Creator change like the wind?

The Scriptures describe the One who has made us as being loving, merciful, and compassionate. But then they speak of him as being like a consuming fire, into whose hands we don’t want to fall.

Even Jesus might leave us wondering if he speaks with the ever changing wind, weather, or circumstance.  He says he has not come to judge the world but to rescue it. He tells religious leaders he is not going to accuse them to his father, but rather that they will be accused by Moses in whom they trust. Yet it is Jesus who in the next breath speaks of those who don’t believe in him as being condemned and standing under the wrath of God.

If Jesus has come to reveal the heart of his Father, then the answer must lie not just with what he says… but in what he does, and in how he acts… before he’s done.

Words, even words that Jesus spoke, can leave us wondering what he meant by his upside-down and inside-out kingdom. But what did he do that leaves us afraid to come to him…

In the end, what did Jesus do that causes us to doubt that even the anger of his Father will turn out to be an expression of his love?

    The short answer Mart is that God is the same yesterday, today and forever.

    It is written that Cherubs encircle the thrown of God and for eternity see the never ending facets of Him.

    It may be what we perceive as changes are just the different faces of God.

    Christianity is based in the cross and Jesus being the scape goat for all of humanity. God showed His love, by taking the punishment mankind deserved upon Himself.

    Perhaps He feels responsible for having created us with all of our flaws and so flawless Himself the only being in all of creation worthy to be blamed, charged and sacrificed, just to save us from eternal separation from Him.

    What did Jesus do? He came to set the captives free. Luke 4:17-19 The scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written:

    The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because He has anointed me to preach Good News to the poor.
    He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.

    Luke 4:21 and He said to them, “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”

    Freedom for the prisoners, release for the oppressed. Those who sin, and that is every single one of us who has ever been born on this earth, are enslaved by sin. Jesus came to save us from our sin. How did He do it?

    Phil 2:5-8…Christ Jesus, who being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made Himself nothing,

    Taking on the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness, and being found in appearance as a man, He humbled himself and became obedient to death – even death on a cross!

    Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name,

    That at the name of Jesus EVERY knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and UNDER the earth, and EVERY tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. (if you confess with your mouth…you will be saved Romans 10:9)

    Those who do not understand these words, or scoff at these words, are lost. And Jesus came to seek and to SAVE what was lost. Those who are lost may not see it now, and they don’t understand, but I believe that with God all things are possible and He has made a way for those who are lost.

    I, for one, do not doubt that even the anger of His Father will turn out to be an expression of His love.

    Is God like the weather? I think the weather is like God. Everything that God created points back to Him. The weather is powerful, yet calm and we cannot see where it comes from or where it goes.
