He is Supreme

Sometimes as a human race, we think we have all the answers. With technology the thought is we can do what we want and there are no limits. The feeling is that nothing or nobody can stop us when in reality there is ONE that can; God is to be feared just as I wrote in the post “Sticking to the Plan” about Him putting an end to the corruption on earth during the time of Noah.

While building the ark, there were probably many reservations, fears, doubts, and problems that Noah encountered but he responded to this incredible instruction from God with purpose and resolve. Then God made it rain and rain until mankind knew who truly reigns. Here’s a video to help keep our focus on this respect for our Creator: God You Reign – Lincoln Brewster.

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing and perfect will. – Romans 12:2


About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.

  1. God is good! Have a great weekend, my friend.


    Water baptism deniers claim that you can ignore Mark 16:16 because some of the earliest manuscripts do not include Mark 16:9-20. The problem is there are 60+ Bible translations that include those verses. I know of no English translation of the Bible that omits Mark 16:9-20. Yes, these same deniers have Mark 16:16 in the Bible they read. That does keep them from explaining away that truth of Mark 16:16.

    Mark 16:16 “He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. (NKJV)

    If the deniers cannot convince you that Mark 16:16 is not the inspired word of God. They will deny that “and” is a conjunction.

    And Defined: A conjunction is used to grammatically coordinate words, phrases, or clauses.[Ref. Dictionary.com]

    1. Mark 16:16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved..(NKJV)

    2. Acts 2:38 …Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins…(NKJV)

    3. You need an engine and gasoline to start your automobile. You cannot start your car by the engine alone.

    4. Your doctor says you need surgery and a blood transfusion in order to live. You cannot live by surgery alone.

    5. You must have a house with walls, and a roof and a heating system to keep your house warm in winter. You cannot keep warm by a house with walls alone.

    Denying that the Bible includes Mark 16:16 does not prove that water baptism is not essential in order to be saved.

    Denying that “and” is a conjunction does not mean that you can have your sins forgiven without being baptized in water.

    It takes a skilled professional to convince men that immersion in water (that is baptism) is not essential in order to be saved from the penalty of sin.

    Honestly seeking God’s truth trumps the erroneous teaching of skilled professionals every time it is tried.
