Bible Ballistics: Vol. 16 No. 14  Because God’s Still GOD!!!


I’d simply like to give us a boost to lift our spirits into the coming new year.  I know that we are all praying for a better year than the one we’ve experienced—with Covid, quarantine, distancing, political upheaval, and chaos all around us—but I pray that we all remember WHO is in charge and it is NOT the W.H.O. or any other entity or organization; but The Lord God Almighty still reigns!

And a voice came out of the throne, saying,

Praise our God, all ye his servants,

and ye that fear him,

both small and great.

6 And I heard as it were

the voice of a great multitude,

and as the voice of many waters,

and as the voice of mighty thunderings,



for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.

 7 Let us be glad and rejoice,

and give honour to him…. ”  Revelation 19:5-7a

The prophet Isaiah declares:

Therefore my people shall know my name:

therefore they shall know in that day

that I am he that doth speak:

behold, it is I.

7 How beautiful upon the mountains

are the feet of him

that bringeth good tidings,

that publisheth peace;

that bringeth good tidings of good,

that publisheth salvation;

that saith unto Zion,

Thy God reigneth!”  Isaiah 52:6-7

And the Psalmist proclaims the sovereign rulership of our God—you can rest assured that God hasn’t been asleep or said “oops”!  He knows what is going on and we can trust HIM and HIS timing!!!

Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering,

and come into his courts.

9 O worship the LORD

in the beauty of holiness:

fear before him,

all the earth.

10 Say among the heathen

that the LORD reigneth:

the world also shall be established

that it shall not be moved:

he shall judge the people righteously.

11 Let the heavens rejoice,

and let the earth be glad;

let the sea roar,

and the fulness thereof.

12 Let the field be joyful,

and all that is therein:

then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice

13 Before the LORD:

for he cometh,

for he cometh to judge

the earth:

he shall judge the world

with righteousness,

and the people

with his truth.”   Psalm 96:8-13

The LORD reigneth,

he is clothed with majesty;

the LORD is clothed

with strength,

wherewith he hath girded himself:

the world also is stablished,

that it cannot be moved.

2 Thy throne is established of old:

thou art from everlasting.”  Psalm 93:1-2

God is God—He is good—He is ‘Truth’, and HE will accomplish HIS work in HIS TIME!  Don’t lose heart—our God reigns, no matter the opposition.

Why do the heathen rage,

and the people imagine a vain thing?

2 The kings of the earth

set themselves,

and the rulers

take counsel together,

against the LORD,

and against his anointed,


3 Let us break their bands asunder,

and cast away their cords from us.

4 He that sitteth in the heavens

shall laugh:

the Lord shall have them in derision.

5 Then shall he speak

unto them

in his wrath,

and vex them

in his sore displeasure.

6 Yet have I set my king

upon my holy hill of Zion.”  Psalm 2:1-6

Man rebelled against God and disobeyed in Eden, and we have carried on the resistance against God ever since—but Jesus came that we could be restored to relationship and fellowship with The God who created us; but woe to those who reject His grace!  Contrary to popular belief, there is only One Way to God—and HIS name is JESUS!  What are you depending on?

For, behold,

the day cometh,

that shall burn as an oven;

and all the proud,

yea, and all that do wickedly,

shall be stubble:

and the day that cometh

shall burn them up,

saith the LORD of hosts,

that it shall leave them

neither root

nor branch.

2 But unto you that fear my name

shall the Sun of righteousness

arise with healing in his wings;

and ye shall go forth,

and grow up

as calves of the stall.

3 And ye shall tread down the wicked;

for they shall be ashes

under the soles of your feet

in the day

that I shall do this,

saith the LORD of hosts.”   Malachi 4:1-3

Praise God for the work of Jesus Christ on our behalf!  Have you received the greatest gift of all?  Today IS the day of salvation—remember there is a test; so, choose wisely!

Therefore being justified by faith,

we have peace with God

through our Lord Jesus Christ:

2 By whom also we have access

by faith

into this grace wherein

we stand,

and rejoice

in hope of the glory of God.

3 And not only so,

but we glory in tribulations also:

knowing that tribulation

worketh patience;

4 And patience,


and experience,


5 And hope

maketh not ashamed;

because the love of God

is shed abroad in our hearts

by the Holy Ghost

which is given unto us.

6 For when we were yet without strength,

in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

7 For scarcely for a righteous man

will one die:

yet peradventure

for a good man some would even dare to die.

8 But God commendeth his love

toward us,

in that, while we were yet sinners,

Christ died for us.

9 Much more then,

being now justified by his blood,

we shall be saved from wrath

through him.

10 For if,

when we were enemies,

we were reconciled to God

by the death of his Son,

much more,

being reconciled,

we shall be saved by his life.

11 And not only so,

but we also joy in God

through our Lord Jesus Christ,

by whom we have now received

the atonement.”  Romans 5:1-11

Paul painted a most alarming picture of those who choose to oppose God, so we must faithfully stand until HE comes with “righteousness” in His wings, but note that it’s His time, His might and His work!

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ:

for it is the power of God

unto salvation

to every one that believeth;

to the Jew first,

and also to the Greek.

17 For therein is the righteousness of God

revealed from faith

to faith:

as it is written,

The just shall live

by faith.

18 For the wrath of God is revealed

from heaven

against all ungodliness

and unrighteousness of men,

who hold the truth

in unrighteousness;

19 Because that which may be known of God

is manifest in them;

for God hath shewed it unto them.

20 For the invisible things of him

from the creation of the world

are clearly seen,

being understood

by the things

that are made,

even his eternal power

and Godhead;

so that they are

without excuse:

21 Because that,

when they knew God,

they glorified him not as God,

neither were thankful;

but became vain in their imaginations,

and their foolish heart

was darkened.”   Romans 1:16-21

God never said we would serve Him without opposition, knowing that if they opposed God Himself, why would they not oppose us who follow HIM!  Jesus also warned us, His followers, that we would stand as sheep amongst wolves—but we are called, equipped and saved to “stand”!  (See Matthew 10:16)

If the world hate you,

ye know that it hated me

before it hated you.

19 If ye were of the world,

the world would love his own:

but because ye are

not of the world,

but I have chosen you

out of the world,

therefore the world hateth you.

20 Remember the word that I said unto you,

The servant is not greater than his lord.

If they have persecuted me,

they will also persecute you;

if they have kept my saying,

they will keep yours also.

21 But all these things

will they do unto you

for my name’s sake,

because they know not him

that sent me.”  John 15:18-21

And in closing, to stand, we must keep our eyes on Jesus, keep our armor on, pressing on with and for Jesus.

Finally, my brethren,

be strong

in the Lord,

and in the power

of his might.

11 Put on the whole armour of God,

that ye may be able to stand

against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not

against flesh and blood,

but against principalities,

against powers,

against the rulers of the darkness of this world,

against spiritual wickedness in high places.

13 Wherefore take unto you

the whole armour of God,

that ye may be able to withstand

in the evil day,

and having done all,

to stand.

14 Stand therefore,

having your loins girt about

with truth,

and having on the breastplate of


15 And your feet shod

with the preparation of the gospel

of peace;

16 Above all, taking the shield of


wherewith ye shall be able

to quench all the fiery darts

of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet

of salvation,

and the sword

of the Spirit,

which is the word of God:

18 Praying always

with all prayer and supplication

in the Spirit,

and watching thereunto

with all perseverance

and supplication

for all saints;”  Ephesians 6:10-18

Amen and Amen!!!

And I heard as it were

the voice of a great multitude,

and as the voice of many waters,

and as the voice of mighty thunderings,



for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.”  Revelation 19:6
