"I have set my bow in the cloud..."



I establish my covenant with you, that never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of the flood, and never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth.” And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations: I have set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds, I will remember my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh. And the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.” God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant that I have established between me and all flesh that is on the earth.” - Genesis 9:11-17

Yesterday (Sunday morning), there was a beautiful rainbow over our church (from our perspective!). Nathan took these great pictures.

This coming Lord's Day, September 2, our congregation will be worshiping in the new sanctuary for the first time.

Very exciting times.

That picture looks doctored...

While I love digital photography and the ability we now have to "doctor" stuff, I'm absolutely sure this picture isn't doctored.

Thanks for your positive outlook though.

We, who are saved by the Grace of our Lord, know the photo was not “doctored” and for those of us who were there today, September 2, 2007, or who have ever attended a service at Redeemer-PCA know that the church is all it claims to be and more. Holy, Holy, Holy is our Lord God Almighty, and it is by His Grace that we are saved. When you attend a service at Redeemer, you will know that His Holy Word is proclaimed for we are His Covenant Chosen People.

Since I was I born and raised in Missouri the “Show Me” state, I would invite “anonymous” or “doubting Thomas” to see for himself God’s Glory proclaimed, to see a fellowship of believers achieve so much in such a little time. Just seven years ago when I attended Redeemer for the first time and saw Tony installed as Assistant Pastor, and my visits in between nothing but God’s Holy Word is proclaimed. On any given Sunday, rather it is Tony, or Nathan, or any of the Elders or Deacons, or members, or visitors you will walk away knowing that this is true that, Salvation is by Grace alone, through Faith alone, in Christ alone, as revealed in the Scripture alone to the Glory of God alone! Sola Gratia, Sola Fide, Solus Christus, Sola Scriptura, Soli Deo Gloria!

Human praise to God can many times be false. But at times like this, I believe God can and does create glory and praise for Himself. He can also reveal Himself through storms and events of nature. For sure His immeasurable Glory is being shown round about here, at this new and welcomed place of confession, worship, and praise. His Divine glory shown round-about, means, man had nothing to do with this. All praise and honor is unto HIM, the Hope of Glory!
