#108 Seven Things About a Voice from Heaven

I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.

Count your way to wisdom in number one-hundred and eight of this series, Seven Things About a Voice from Heaven.

In the Book of Daniel, there is a description of a divine being speaking from heaven. This description fits the same divine being speaking at the beginning of the Book of Revelation. This divine being is called one like the Son of Man in both books.

Seven Things About a Voice from Heaven:

  1. The Book of Daniel speaks of a voice from heaven “Like the Sound of a Multitude”.
  2. The Book of Daniel speaks of one like the son of man coming on the clouds of heaven.
  3. The Book of Revelation opens with a voice from heaven speaking, one like the Son of Man.
  4. The Book of Revelation says that the voice from heaven was like the roar of many waters.
  5. The Book of Revelation says that the voice from heaven comes from the throne calling everyone in heaven to praise God.
  6. The Book of Revelation says that this voice, in heaven, one like the Son of man, cries out for all the saved to sing at the marriage supper of the Lamb.
  7. The last voice to speak is an angel giving a guarantee of the truth of the voice.

The angel said, “blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are the true words of God.” All the saved are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb, and this voice ends with a guarantee that these words are true. This truth is the hope of all Christians. This is one dinner date we will not miss.

I am Fred Myers, and this is Faith by the Numbers.

It is my prayer that many will count their way to wisdom through this series and find the peace that surpasses all understanding.

Da 10:6 His body was like beryl, his face like the appearance of lightning, his eyes like flaming torches, his arms and legs like the gleam of burnished bronze, and the sound of his words like the sound of a multitude.

Da 7:13 “I saw in the night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven there came one like a son of man, and he came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before him.

Re 1:12 Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking to me, and on turning I saw seven golden lampstands, Re 1:13 and in the midst of the lampstands one like a son of man, clothed with a long robe and with a golden sash around his chest.

Re 1:15 his feet were like burnished bronze, refined in a furnace, and his voice was like the roar of many waters.

Re 19:5 And from the throne came a voice saying, “Praise our God, all you his servants, you who fear him, small and great.”

Re 19:9 And the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are the true words of God.”

Seven Things Christians are to Submit To

#107 Seven Things Christians are to Submit To

I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.

Count your way to wisdom in number one-hundred and seven of this series, Seven Things Christians are to Submit To.

The Christian life is a life of service. When we look at the things that the Bible calls Christians to submit to there can be no doubt our call is to service. All evil is done in selfishness, and all selfishness is done in pride and greed. Christians are called to first submit to God, and all submission to God flows from the greatest commandment, “to love your neighbor as yourself”.

Seven Things Christians are to Submit To:

  1. We submit in love to God.
  2. We submit in love to One another.
  3. We submit in love to Church leaders.
  4. We submit in love to Governing authorities.
  5. We submit in love Wives to husbands.
  6. We submit in love Children to parents.
  7. We submit in love Workers to Superiors.

Servanthood is like the old song, “everyone wants to go to heaven, but no one wants to die”, but in the case of service it would be “everyone wants honor in heaven, but no one wants to serve on earth”. Today is a good day to love your family by being a servant, and then carry your service into the world for the lost to see.

I am Fred Myers, and this is Faith by the Numbers.

It is my prayer that many will count their way to wisdom through this series and find the peace that surpasses all understanding.

Jas 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Eph 5:21 submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.

Heb 13:17 Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you.

Ro 13:1 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.

Eph 5:22 Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord.

Eph 6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.

Eph 6:5 Bondservants, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, with a sincere heart, as you would Christ…Eph 6:7 rendering service with a good will as to the Lord and not to man

1 Co 13:13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Jas 2:8 If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing well.

Seven Things About Grateful and Thankful

#106 Seven Things About Grateful and Thankful

I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.

Count your way to wisdom in number one-hundred and six of this series, Seven Things About Grateful and Thankful.

Grateful and thankful may seem like two words that have the same meaning, but there is only one use of the word “grateful” in the Bible. The word “grateful” in the Bible has the meaning of “to have”, or “possession”. Used in the sense of “to already have a possession” that cannot be taken away. The root of the word “grateful” meaning “to have something” is used many times in the Bible to denote possession, but the word “grateful” to denote “thankfulness” is only used once, and this is in the Book of Hebrews. Christians are to be “grateful”, or “thankful” for already having received a Kingdom that cannot be shaken.

But, the word thankful is in the Bible many times, and it is an attitude and an action that the Bible commands. Thankful is used in the same manner as “confess”, “praise”, and “acknowledge.

Why even note that there is a difference? The difference is significant. God knows that goodness and charity flow from thankfulness. Confessing, acknowledging, and praising God and others for what you have creates a thankfulness that brings out the humility of life.

Seven Things About Grateful and Thankful:

  1. Paul is thankful that others give thanks on his behalf.
  2. Paul is always thankful for others.
  3. Paul is thankful to God for others.
  4. Paul urges everyone to be thankful for all people.
  5. Thankfulness is a constant in Paul’s life.
  6. Paul does not cease to be thankful.
  7. The Psalms say we are to give thanks to the Lord with all our heart for all God’s deeds.

Grateful is a word of quiet possession, while thankful is a word for vocal expression by confessing, praising, and acknowledging God. Giving voice to a good and loving attitude of joy for all things. The Bible requires you to give thanks for your possessions

 And blessings, and to also be thankful that others have what they have. Today be more than grateful, be biblically thankful …confessing, acknowledging, and praising God from whom all blessings flow.

I am Fred Myers, and this is Faith by the Numbers.

It is my prayer that many will count their way to wisdom through this series and find the peace that surpasses all understanding.

Heb 12:28 Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe…

1 Ch 16:8 Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples!

2 Co 1:11 You also must help us by prayer, so that many will give thanks on our behalf for the blessing granted us through the prayers of many.

Col 1:3 We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you

1 Ti 2:1 First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, 1 Ti 2:2 for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.

Eph 1:16 I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.

Ps 9:1 I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds.

There is no other name with which mankind can be saved, there is no other name with which we can pray. The name of Jesus Christ is the one name that God wants the whole world to know.

  1. We are to be baptized.

  7. We are to pray.
  8. We are to give thanks.

After the Bible, the great hymns say it best. There is no sweeter name than Jesus.

I am Fred Myers, and this is Faith by the Numbers.

It is my prayer that many will count their way to wisdom through this series and find the peace that surpasses all understanding.

Ac 2:38 And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Ac 3:6 But Peter said, “I have no silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!”

Ac 16:18 And this she kept doing for many days. Paul, having become greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.” And it came out that very hour.

Ac 4:12 And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

Ro 10:13 For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

Col 3:17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

#104 Seven Things Christians Do “In the Spirit”

I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.

Count your way to wisdom in number one-hundred and four of this series, Seven Things Christians do “In the Spirit”.

Eph 1:13 In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit.

All Christians are given the Holy Spirit at salvation as a guarantee of seeing God face-to-face. Having received the Spirit, we are to do certain things “in the Spirit”.

Seven things Christians do “in the Spirit”:

  1. We are to be led by the Spirit (setting our mind authoritatively and conclusively in Kingdom work)
  2. We are to be renewed in the Spirit
  3. We are to pray in the Spirit
  4. We are to love in the Spirit
  5. We are made alive in the Spirit
  6. We are to hope in the Spirit
  7. We are to share in the Spirit

In fact, Christians can do none of these things unless they are in the Holy Spirit.

Eph 3:16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being,

Be in the power of the Holy Spirit and be thankful, for in his power you are blessed.

I am Fred Myers, and this is Faith by the Numbers.

It is my prayer that many will count their way to wisdom through this series and find the peace that surpasses all understanding.

Ac 19:21 Now after these events Paul resolved in the Spirit to pass through Macedonia and Achaia and go to Jerusalem, saying, “After I have been there, I must also see Rome.”

Ro 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
