that people may know, from the rising of the sun and from the west, that there is none besides Me;

I am the Lord, and there is no other.
I form light and create darkness;
I make well-being and create calamity;{The word also means adversity,disaster}
I am the Lord, who does ALL these things.“-{Isaiah 45:6-7; Also Read Amos 4:6-11}. God’s World Wide Witness. to… HIMSELF!

1. WORLD WIDE WITNESS- TO HIMSELF

Why did He do this? He tells them “that people may KNOW from the rising of the sun and from the west that there is NONE BESIDES ME”

“LORD” In the Old Testament speaks of Him as God, Creator, Provider, Self -Existent One, Promise Keeping Faithful One, Sovereign, Unchanging! And He declares to this people that there is “None besides me” Neither idol, or false “god” can be compared to Him the true Living God. He testifies witness to Who He is, LORD, CREATOR, GOD!”

CONSIDER; GOD’S WORLD WIDE WITNESS TO HIMSELF!

2. GOD WITNESS’S THROUGH CREATION;

His wonderful works of Creation testifies to Him.”The heavens declare{shout, herald} the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands.Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge.They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them.Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.”
-{Psalm 19:1-4}

And He testifies so all people will know of Him who He is and He owns and declares as the word “I” informs them, “I” – Am the LORD- there is None other” I form Light, I create darkness, make well being I CREATE CALAMITY, DISASTER… and again repeats “I am the LORD” let there be no doubt about it and then owns it by saying “..who Does ALL these Things!” He is not a God to be trifled with but one who is to be admired, adored, and obeyed. For He is God and we have our existence because of Him and He holds our lives in His control and He acts as pleases Him “whatever pleases the LORD He does in Heaven or on earth” -{Psalm 135:6.} “The earth is the LORD’S and EVERYTHING in it belongs to the LORD”-{ 1 Cor 10:26}.

“for through Him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see— such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through Him and for Him.”-{Col 1:26 NLT}.

CONSIDER; GOD’S WORLD WIDE WITNESS TO HIMSELF AND THROUGH HIS CREATION!

3. GOD WITNESS’S THROUGH CALAMITIES!

“…I make well-being and create calamity;{The word also means adversity, disaster} am the Lord, who does ALL these things.“-{Isaiah 45:6-7}. In context the calamity, disaster, He did not pass off as the work of someone else but as HIS! And this because of their hard-hearted continuous defiant rebellion towards Him and He brought calamity, adversity, disaster, that they might know there is None besides Him, that He IS LORD, CREATOR, GOD and He is involved and acts, this is HIS World, His creation… And His Warning of calamity was His work for their rebellion towards Him. God is not mocked. “The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.”-{2 Peter 3:9}. He is not vindictive , but it is His Kindness manifested, for we read, “Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin?{lead you to repentance}- { Rom 2:4}

CONSIDER; GOD’S WORLD WIDE WITNESS TO HIMSELF THROUGH CREATION AND CALAMITIES…

4. GOD WITNESS’S THROUGH THE CROSS OF CHRIST;

“THAT THEY MIGHT KNOW…” Here we see God making Himself KNOWN that they might not walk in spiritual darkness groping for idols to somehow give them life, understanding, meaning to their lives but that they may know Him and that there is “No Other” than Him! Such is His mercy that daily you experience His creation all around you seeing His skies that SHOUT Glory, Glory, Glory to God and feel the gentle breeze to the strongest of winds and knowing it is Him The Scriptures say “the wind comes forth from His treasuries” the flowers of the filed testify to Him the birds that fly in the expanse of the Heavens whom He provides for Testify to Him all of Creation exists to Witness to you of HIM and through His Son to “come unto Me all you who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you REST” And to experience this is to submit to the Sole authority of the LORD Jesus-{Read Matt 11:28-30}

God Witness’ through The CROSS OF CHRIST!

The Book of Hebrews lists Five WARNINGS, AND the core of the problem is hearts that are HARDENED towards God in self will… and yet the plea of Love and mercy and grace goes forth…

“Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion…”-{Heb 3:15}. He calls for them to LEARN FROM HISTORY… from the lives of those who went ahead of them who had HARDENED THEIR HEARTS… and calls them to LEARN from the WITNESS OF HISTORY TO THEM!

The LORD still WITNESS’s TESTIFIES today… in Creation and Catastrophes and through the CROSS and Resurrection of His Beloved Son our LORD Jesus Christ!
