Enslaved to Purity !

     “Being now made free from sin, ye became (are now) the servants of righteousness . . . !”   Romans 6:18-23

     “Perfection through our own good works we can never attain. The soul who sees Jesus by faith, repudiates his own righteousness. He sees himself as incomplete, his repentance insufficient, his strongest faith but feebleness, his most costly sacrifice as meager, and he sinks in humility at the foot of the cross.    But a Voice speaks to him from the Oracles of God’s Word. In amazement he hears the message, “Ye are complete in Him !”

To Set the Captives Free . . . !

TheLeperAnd if the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed . . . !”   John 8:36

     He came to heal the broken hearted, to proclaim deliverance to the captives, recovering of sight to the blind, and to set at liberty them that are bruised and beaten down repeatedly . . . !” Luke 4:18-19  Being raised in a 7th day Adventist Christian home, and growing up hearing about the law of Jehovah, the message of the three angels, and the importance of the Sabbath, I took little notice of statements such as these which I found in the Scriptures. The freedom here spoken of was thought to be needed more by the drunkard, the thief, the murderer and adulterers, and even more by those who knew not the knowledge which I had of the mark of the beast, and coming great time of trouble.

As I look back now, I realize that I knew a great deal “about God;” I could argue almost any debate on Scripture doctrines, but had never really known by experience His great love and desire to literally dwell within my heart and mind, and make me free indeed!”     That is until the LORD in His mercy, allowed my wife and I to know the reality of the battle in which each of us are found. A battle in which none of my will, my strength or head-knowledge was of any avail.

In 2003, after months of fighting with the unseen whispers in my head, I yielded to the voice of SELF, and filed for a divorce; a decision which would change for ever, not only my life, but that of my wife and two young children as well . . . This was the beginning of the greatest miracle we had ever seen. For what the devil thought to use for evil, and our family’s destruction, the LORD God Almighty (Yehuwah El’Shaddai) wrought mightily for our good ! And it is this miracle, the miracle of the Glad Tidings of Christ, which begat within us the Life which God has promised, the Life which Jesus both lived, died, and rose again to freely give us. And the ministry which the LORD has called each of us to do, saying . . .

All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore . . . into all the world (begin in your own neighborhood), and proclaim the Glad Tidings to every creature. And he that believeth and is baptized (with the Spirit) shall be saved . . . !”   Matthew 28:18-19, Mark 16:15-16& ref: Titus 3:4-6 Continue reading

A Message of Hope !

woman caught adulteryHe is able to save to the uttermost !

     “Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? Hope thou in God (Elohim – the Mighty One of Israel): for I shall yet praise Him for the Help* of His Countenance . . . !”   Psalm 42:5

“Satan seeks to draw our minds away from the mighty Helper, to lead us to ponder over our degeneration of soul. But though Jesus sees the guilt of the past (last year, last month, last week, or even last night), He speaks pardon; and we should not dishonor Him by doubting His love.

The feeling of guiltiness must be laid at the foot of the cross, or it will poison the springs of life. When Satan thrusts his threatenings upon you, turn from them, and comfort your soul with the Promises of God. The cloud may be dark in itself, but when filled with the Light of heaven, it turns to the brightness of gold; for the glory (character and love) of God rests upon it.       – Testimonies to Ministers p.518

If you feel yourself to be the greatest sinner, Christ is just what you need, the greatest Saviour. Lift up your head and look away from yourself, away from your sin, to the uplifted Saviour; away from the poisonous, venomous bite of the serpent to the Lamb of God Who taketh away the sin of the world.                                                           – Lift Him Up p.256

The sense of sin has poisoned the springs of Life. But Christ says, “I will take your sins; I will give you peace. I have bought you with My blood. You are Mine. My grace* shall strengthen your weakened will; and your remorse for sin I will remove . . . . !” Continue reading

The Victory of Faith !

For as many as are born (begotten) of GOD overcometh the world. And this is the Victory that overcometh the world, even our Faith !”     I John 5:4

Christ Promised the gift of the Holy Spirit to His church (congregation), and the Promise belongs as much to us as to the first disciples. But like every other Promise, it is given on conditions . . . .

So what are those conditions ? Continue reading
