fantastic rays

Last week we reaffirmed that salvation comes from the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.  Now the question becomes,
can third world tribe members know and receive the Holy Spirit?  Let’s read several scriptures.

Psalms 19:1  The heavens declare the glory of God;  the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

Isaiah 6:3  And they were calling to one another:  “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty;  the whole world is full
of his glory.

Romans 1:20  For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities- his eternal power and devine
nature- have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without
excuse.

These three scriptures tell us that nature itself speaks of God’s glory.  Nature speaks so loudly of God’s glory,
that men are without excuse.

Here’s a personal example.  When I was age twenty-one, I worked in a summer camp.  There was no television, not
many vehicles, no material things.  Just camp counselors helping campers while living in nature.  As a result, my
sole settled.  My sole was peaceful.  I could appreciate nature.  The blowing of the wind, ruffling leaves, fish jump-
ing, animals like deers, squirrels and birds moving through the forrest, wild cloud formations over the mountains,
pastel orange and blue sunrises and bright shooting stars during pitch dark nights.

In a similar way, many third world tribe members are one with nature.  Also, many early American Indians were
one with nature.  Nature spoke to them of one greater than themselves.  Someone had to create this
magnificent surroundings.  They even spoke of the Great Spirit.

Next week we will look at an example of early American Indians respect for God.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
