Hi there!

 

Welcome to Barah Ministries…a Christian Church based in Mesa, AZ…my name is Pastor Rory Clark.

 

Songs do a great job of communicating the truth of the Word of God.  Here at Barah Ministries, we are blessed to have one of the best songwriters, best singers, and best music producers, all wrapped up in a single package.  Her name is June Murphy, and her songs are amazing at communicating the truth of the Word of God.

 

For the next several lessons you’ll be listening songs from her second album…the Come See a Man album.  Today’s song is HOW GREAT YOU ARE.

 

TODAY’S SONG

How Great You Are

 

Who’s great?  God is GREAT!  And He thinks the same thing about Himself because HE knows He is the One and only God…He knows He is perfect…He knows He created you…Isaiah, Chapter 45, Verses 5 to 7…

 

ISAIAH 45:5

 “I am the Lord, and there is no other…besides Me there is no other God.  I will gird you, though you have not known Me…”

 

ISAIAH 45:6

“…that men may know from the rising to the setting of the sun that there is no one besides Me.  I am the Lord, and there is no other God…”

 

ISAIAH 45:7a

“I am the One forming light and creating darkness…”

 

And our God is the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Today, not everyone knows that…and not everyone believes that…but in the future, Philippians, Chapter 2, Verses 9 to 11 predicts a certain event…

 

PHILIPPIANS 2:9

…God the Father highly exalted the Lord Jesus Christ, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name…

 

PHILIPPIANS 2:10

…so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and of those on earth and of those under the earth…

 

PHILIPPIANS 2:11

…and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

 

The Lord Jesus Christ is the Sovereign God of the universe, and He controls history…Hebrews, Chapter 1, Verse 3…

 

HEBREWS 1:3

And the Lord Jesus Christ is the radiance of God the Father’s glory and the Lord is the exact representation of God the Father’s nature, and the Lord Jesus Christ upholds all things by the word of His power. When the Lord Jesus Christ had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty (God the Father) on high…

 

And today the Lord Jesus Christ sits patiently at the right hand of His God and Father for this absolutely certain event…Hebrews, Chapter 10, Verses 11 to 13…

 

HEBREWS 10:11

Every priest stands daily ministering and offering time after time the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins…

 

HEBREWS 10:12

….but the Lord Jesus Christ, having offered one sacrifice for sins for all time, sat down at the right hand of God the Father…

 

HEBREWS 10:13

…waiting from that time onward until the Lord’s enemies be made (by God the Father) a footstool for His feet.

 

Our God, the Lord Jesus Christ, is truly GREAT!

HOW GREAT YOU ARE

June Murphy

 

Here’s June to sing about Him…HOW GREAT YOU ARE.

 

HOW GREAT YOU ARE

 

My God, how great Thou art

You have set me apart

You finish what You start

You alone can change my heart

 

HOW GREAT YOU ARE

 

You hold time in Your hands

You were before time began

No one can change Your plans

Your absolute Truth forever stands

 

HOW GREAT YOU ARE

 

How great…how great…how great…

How great You are…how great You are…

How great You are…how great You are

 

HOW GREAT YOU ARE

 

I will submit to You

I will obey You

Lay down my life for You

I live to die for You

HOW GREAT YOU ARE

 

I will submit to You

I will obey You

Lay down my life for You

Because I want to

 

HOW GREAT YOU ARE

 

How great…how great…how great…

How great You are…how great You are

 

HOW GREAT YOU ARE

 

You control all history

Giving us a will that’s free

Provided our destiny

Your Word is the air my soul breathes

 

HOW GREAT YOU ARE

 

I will walk in the light…

Not in the dark of night

Not living wrong or right…but by obedience

Precious in Your sight

 

HOW GREAT YOU ARE

 

How great…how great…how great…

How great You are…how great You are…

How great You are…how great You are

 

HOW GREAT YOU ARE

 

I will submit to You

I will obey You

Lay down my life for You

I live to die for You

 

HOW GREAT YOU ARE

 

I will submit to You

I will obey You

Lay down my life for You

Because I want to

 

HOW GREAT YOU ARE

 

How great…how great…how great…

How great You are…how great You are

 

HOW GREAT YOU ARE

I’m gonna walk by the power of the Holy Spirit

In a manner worthy of the calling I’ve received

Then I won’t fulfill the lusts of the flesh

This truth I’ve come to know and I believe

 

HOW GREAT YOU ARE

 

Still there will be times I will choose to sin

This is absolutely true

But Father…I know all my sins were forgiven

And I can never lose fellowship with You

 

HOW GREAT YOU ARE

 

How great You are, God the Father

You have a plan for me

How great You are…God the Son

I know that You laid down Your life for me

 

HOW GREAT YOU ARE

 

How great You are, God the Holy Spirit

You teach and enable me

How great You are, the Godhead

How great You are indwelling Trinity

 

HOW GREAT YOU ARE

 

How great You are…

How great You are…

How great You are

 

Thanks June, for this beautiful and instructive song. 

 

Luke, Chapter 5, Verse 20…

LUKE 5:20

Seeing their faith, the Lord Jesus Christ said, “Friend, your sins are forgiven you.”

 

… this GREAT GOD has forgiven all of your sins.  Do you forgive yourself for sinning?  If not…God thinks more highly of you than you think of yourself!

 

Psalm 95, Verse 1 says…

 

PSALM 95:1

O come, let us sing for joy to the Lord…

Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation.

 

We dedicate the closing moments of our lesson today to anyone watching or to anyone listening who no longer wants to live under the slavery and the rulership of God’s enemy, Satan…to anyone who does not have a relationship with the One and Only God…the God who loves you unconditionally…the faithful One…the God who forgives you…the GREAT ONE…the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Acts, Chapter 2, Verse 21 says…

 

ACTS 2:21

‘And it shall be that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ will be saved.’

 

Right now, you can call on the name of the Lord by telling God the Father that you believe in His Son, and that’s the moment of eternal life for you.  Believing in the Lord Jesus Christ is the best and most important decision you can make in your lifetime.  A simple five-word request gets you to heaven…“Father, I believe in Christ.”  For a thief being crucified next to Jesus, it was a nine word request…Luke, Chapter 23, Verses 42 and 43…

 

LUKE 23:42-43

And the repentant thief was saying, “Jesus, remember me when You come into Your kingdom!”//And Jesus said to him, “Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.”

 

Let today be the day you stop putting off the best decision of your life. You won’t ever regret believing in the Lord Jesus Christ and counting on Him to accomplish your salvation.  Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ…and you will be saved…then, get to know Him!  Grow, within the sphere of His grace, in the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  John, Chapter 3, Verses 17 and 18 say…

 

JOHN 3:17

For God the Father did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.

 

JOHN 3:18

He who believes in the Lord Jesus Christ is not judged…but he who does not believe in the Lord Jesus Christ has been judged already, because he has not believed in the Person of the uniquely born Son of God the Father.

 

Don’t let yourself be judged!  Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved!
