There are many phrases in the bible that contain the word “Remember.” To remember something is to imprint an image, phrase, event or memory to our brains. Hopefully we will always remember our loved ones, our favorite vacations, and especially our God! God tells us that we are to remember Them (Father and Son) always and to remember God's Laws and instructions. God also promises us that They, (Father and Son), will remember all the promises made to us! God will remember each one of us... A wonderful thought...
REMEMBER – NKJV (New King James Version) (God's words in RED)
God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the animals that were with him in the ark.
and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh.
And Moses said to the people: “Remember this day in which you went out of Egypt
“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
“And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth
To such as keep His covenant, And to those who rememberHis commandments to do them.
I remember Your name in the night, O Lord, And I keep Your law.
Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth, Before the difficult days come, And the years draw near when you say, “I have no pleasure in them”:
“I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; And I will not remember your sins.
Remember the former things of old, For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me,
No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says theLord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”
“Remember the Law of Moses, My servant, Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, With the statutes and judgments.
Then he (one of the thieves on the cross) said to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.”
As we can see from Scripture. the word remember should be important to all of us.
Let me walk you through a special guided imagery:
Allow your mind to enter a dream state. Dream of Heaven and the entire Universe and Earth. We know that if we believe what God says, the EARTH is the CENTER of the created physical Universe just as Heaven is the center of all Creation. In Heaven, the CENTER is the Throne of The Father God and Jesus Christ.
On Earth, the center of Earth is the ancient land known as Israel which is located in Palestine. To God, Israel is the center of this planet and of all creation, aside from Heaven. That's why every direction given in the Bible centers from Israel! People from the North – are peoples North of Palestine. People of the South are those BELOW or south of Israel. The Western Coastlands are lands WEST in the western oceans FROM Palestine which are England and the Americas.
Now zoom in a bit...see that the center of Israel is Jerusalem! Jerusalem is the eternal city and the only one promised to appear in the world tomorrow.
Zoom in even more! In the center of Jerusalem is God's Holy Temple, which is now destroyed, but a PROMISE has been etched in scripture for it to be rebuilt before the return of Christ. From this Temple, Christ will rule!
In the center of the Temple is the Holy of Holies where the Ark of the Covenant was placed. On the top of this Ark is a SEAT. It is the very seat that Christ sat on while the Temple stood. Christ's Spiritual Presence emitted from this seat, and you can be sure it will again!
Inside the Ark in the center are the two tablets of THE TEN COMMANDMENTS! The center of all creation was and is the Ten Commandments. You may know them as that awful Law that many try to tell you Christ abolished; nothing could be further from the truth!
On the Ten Commandments are Ten Laws.
The 4th Commandment Begins with this word:
Yes we are to remember the most spiritual of the Commandments, the Center of the world.
Remember the sabbath Day and Keep it Holy!
Are you keeping this day holy?
