Four Dimensions of the Fourth Dimension

UV 2903/10000 Four Dimensions of the Fourth Dimension
Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?
Exodus 15 v 11
Jehovah is unique. He is unique even among all conceptions of mankind of god on earth. HE is unique in both His words and His works. His words are wonderful and His works are miraculous. His presence is enough for all to fall down and worship. His shadow or His influence is more powerful than a shield of steel. He is to be feared, revered, respected, held in awe and yet be loved. He is merciful to the humble. He is faithful and consistent in all He says and does. All these qualities are personified and embodied in full measure in the person of Jesus.
The Messianic prophet Isaiah in a revelation explains that the fourth dimension-the supernatural Being, the Great I Am has four dimensions- wonderful counsellor, mighty God, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace. These four dimensions are wisdom, power, love and peace. When God is with us in Jesus, these four dimensions of the fourth dimension should intermingle and be manifest in our lives- wisdom, power, love and peace. These four qualities seem paradoxical or contradictory- how can a person be fearful in praise and yet be intimate and loving as a Father? How can He combine the humility of wisdom with the greatness of His infinite power? The uni-verse states that the Lord is alone in His holiness- none of us can even remotely approach His holiness or character. He is fearful or awesome in holiness. But He clothes us by His grace with His wisdom, power, love and peace. The wisdom, power, love and peace of the Lord is unique, distinct from what is understood to be wisdom, power, love and peace in this world.
The word of the Lord is the key to unlocking the wisdom, power, love and peace embedded in the fourth dimension. We learn and appreciate and imitate the wisdom of the Lord when we read, study, meditate and apply His word in this world. We are to apply it in our relationship with Him, relationship with our own family, relationship with all others. We cannot have double standards where we apply one rule in one relationship and quite another elsewhere. Our paradigm of life shifts from the love of power to the power of love. The transformation of human character is of far greater value and significance in His eyes than the turning of water into wine.
