It’s interesting people automatically assume you are a heathen going to hell for saying God is terrible. When in fact, if they would have read the word, they would see that the bible, God’s OWN words, says He is terrible. Consider the passage from Psalms.
Ps 47:2 For the LORD most high is terrible; He is a great King over all the earth.
How wonderful this verse is! It is the verse that speaks of our King’s TRUE majesty. He is the “Most High”. (He is above all else.) He is a great King (Ruler) over all the earth. And He is Terrible. This word terrible does not mean what your thinking. It does not mean bad or horrible. it means fearful, or to be feared. It means mighty, or great. This scripture in general is saying, our God is so great there is no other words to describe him!
This is the same God that created the UNIVERSE!!! He created the sun, planets, the moons, and even the closest star which is 4.3 lightyears away. And the nearest galaxy is 2.5 million lightyears away! A single light year is how far the speed of light travels in one year. And light travels at 186,282 miles per second. Thats extremely far! Like Pslams 103:12 says, as far as the east from the west. Wow, only God can know how far the east is from the west.
King David says in Psalms 139 For you formed my inward parts, you knitted me together in my mothers womb. And i praise you, for i am fearfully and wonderfully made! This verse David says, Lord, yeah, you created the universe, but thats nothing compared to how you made and formed me inside my mothers womb! Scientists think they know alot, they know a certain act must be done to create a baby, but they will never know why or HOW the bones grow or muscles start out of an egg and a sperm. Where does this come from? David is astounded by the thought of how great God is, just by knowing that He FORMS us in our mothers womb! Note the “fearfully made”. We are terribly made by a terrible God!
Ps 65:5 By terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God of our salvation; who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off upon the sea:
Ps 66:3 Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.
Ps 66:5 Come and see the works of God: He is terrible in his doing toward the children of men.
Wow, more excellent verses to describe our God. The word Terrible in the original translation is yare’. Which means to fear, reverence, respect, honor, and my favorite, to stand in AWE of!!! In other words “God is AWESOME! because only He is worthy to stand in awe of!” -Pastor Timothy Jones of YCOG. God is not only great and mighty and majestic, He is AWESOME! or in the words of THE word He is TERRIBLE!!!
Ps 68:35 O God, thou art terrible out of thy holy places: the God of Israel is he that giveth strength and power unto his people. Blessed be God.
Ps 99:3 Let them praise thy great and terrible name; for it is holy.
So now let us sing songs about his holy, great and terrible name!
Deuteronomy 7:21Thou shalt not be affrighted at them: for the LORD thy God [is] among you, a mighty God and terrible.
Now to conclude on this blog, i would like to say, God is terrible. He is awesome. And this last scripture just said dont be afraid of them (your enemy the devil) For the Lord your God, is with you. For God has said He will never leave you, or forsake you. And He is a mighty God. He will be there for you when you need him the most. For David said “No I have never seen the righteous forsaken, or His seed begging for bread.” No, God will not allow that. Because He cares for you and He loves you. And He will literally change the course of the Universe JUST FOR YOU! Why? He loves you. How? Because
God is Terrible!!!!
