Our Victory in Christ Jesus Guaranteed !

     “Therefore . . . being now justified* be faith, we have Peace with God (John 14:27) through our Lord Jesus Christ !”   Romans 4:20-25 and 5:1

“What is justification* (innocence, holiness, righteousness) by faith?   It is the work of God in laying the glory of man in the dust (I Corinthians 1:29-31), and doing for man that which it is not in his power to do for himself. When men see their own nothingness, then they are prepared to be clothed with the righteousness of Christ !”

Behold, I Stand at the Door and Knock . . . !

Jesus knocking at the door 1     “No man can of himself cast out the evil throng that have taken possession of the heart. Only Christ can cleanse the soul temple . . . but He will not force and entrance. He come not into the heart as to the temple of old; but He says . . .

     “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My Voice, and opens the door (yields, surrenders their will), I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me . . . !”     Revelation 3:20

And They Two Shall be One Flesh . . .?

     “Yet ye say . . . Wherefore?
Because the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth . . . against whom thou hats dealt treacherously. Yet she is thy companion, and the wife of thy Covenant (Oath) . . .

     For did not He make them one (Matthew 19:3-9)? . . . and wherefore one? So that He might seek a godly seed (children). Therefore take heed to your spirit (mind), and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth . . . . For the LORD, the God (Elohim – Mighty One) of Israel, saith He hateth putting away in divorce . . . !”
Malachi 2:13-16 & ref: Malachi 4:6

Note:   My wife and I are sharing this short yet powerful testimony of a
little girl who is struggling with the battle taking place between her Dad
and Mom. As I watched it today I was very inspired, as well as saddened,
for although the little girl’s heart’s desire is right . . . she did not know
how to fix a seemingly impossible dilemma.

      So many of God’s children are struggling, and although they may
sincerely desire for their marriage healed and restored, they often do not
realize what it is they are literally fighting against, nor where the fight
is coming from . . .

   My wife and I know all to well from personal experience what this battle
is like. For we wrestled for years to overcome, yet it seemed no matter how
hard we “tried,” nothing seemed to really work. Looking back now, I clearly
see that we were “fighting” in the flesh, rather than the power of God’s
Spirit !

For our Father in heaven has given each of us great Light from His
Word, and above all, this assurance . . . “For the weapons of our warfare
are not carnal (weak and human), but mighty (full of power and possible)
through God . . . to the pulling down of strongholds; casting down
imaginations, and every high thing (those spirits, and powers of the air)
that exalts itself against the knowledge (knowing – John 17:3) of God . . .

     And bringing into captivity every thought to the perfect obedience of
Christ !”   II Corinthians 10:4-5 & ref: Ephesians 2:2

      “We wrestle not against flesh and blood (not our spouse, nor even our
own), but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the
darkness* of this world . . . against spiritual wickedness in the heavens…

      Wherefore my brother and sister, take unto you the whole armour of God
(Deity – II Peter 1:4), so that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day . . .
 and having done all, to stand ! . . . .

Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with the Truth (John 17:17), and having on the breastplate of righteousness (Jeremiah 23:5-6) . . . And your feet shod with the preparation (ointment) of the Glad Tidings of Peace . . .
     And above all, taking the shield of faith . . . and faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God (Romans 10:17) . . . wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one (Satan, the devil) . . . And take the helmet of your Salvation (that deliverance, freedom and healing wrought and complete for you by the Lord Jesus Christ), and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God . . . !”   Ephesians 6:12-18

      “For it is not by might, nor by power . . . but by My Spirit saith the LORD of hosts !”   And the Words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are Life !”     Zechariah 4:6 and John 6:63 and ref: Isaiah 55:8-11

     We pray that this little girls testimony will touch you. And I encourage you also to watch the story of the miracle which the LORD did in our lives, and is more than willing also to do in yours, if you will seek Him with all your heart, and fight the good fight of faith !

The demon of Selfishness ? – part.1

Calvary2The Root of Every Sin !

Nevertheless, not My will, but Thine be done . . . !”     Luke 22:42

“When Judas joined the disciples, he was not insensible to the beauty of the character of Christ. He felt the Influence of that divine power which was drawing souls to the Saviour. . . . The Saviour read the heart of Judas; He knew the depths of iniquity to which, unless delivered by the grace* (G5485) of God, Judas would sink. In connecting this man with Himself, He placed him where he might, day by day, be brought in contact with the outflowing of His Own unselfish love.

If he would open his heart to Christ, divine grace* (the divine Influence upon the heart) would banish the demon of selfishness, and even Judas might become a subject of the kingdom of God . . .”   – Desire of Ages p.294

And Jesus said to then all, If any man will come after Me (be My disciple), let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me . . . !”   Luke 9:23 Continue reading

the Root of Bitterness ?

free from bitterness 001     “. . . So likewise shall My Father in heaven do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses (error, sin or willful transgression) !”
Matthew 18:21-35, Mark 11:25-26 & Matthew 6:14-15

How to be Free from Bitterness ! – (PDF)  click here to read the full text

     “Before we can get rid of bitterness, we have to realize that we are bitter. How can we tell if we are bitter?  One good rule of thumb is this: Bitterness remembers details. You have had thousands of conversations in your life, most of which you have forgotten. But this one took place five years ago, and you remember every single word, his intonation, and the inflection of every part of his voice. You know exactly what happened—which means you are bitter.

     Someone might object and say that it is also possible to have a good memory of a wonderful conversation. Is this possible? Yes, but not likely. Why is this? Because memory is helped by review, review, and more review

People do not usually mull over the wonderful things as much. But they do go over and over and over the bad things. I have done quite a bit of counseling with people who are in the process of getting divorced. I have known some since the time they were married, at a happier time in their life. But at the time of the divorce they cannot remember a single happy time. All they can remember is that which they have gone over and over. They are bitter . . . !”

     “Let all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice be put away (taken away, removed) from you. And be ye kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as God for Christ’s sake forgave you. Be ye therefore followers of God, as dearly loved children and walk (live a life of ) in love, just as Christ also hath loved us and given himself for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God . . . !” Ephesians 4:31-5:2

The Garment of GOD’s Grace ?

Article from Sister Pat Rallo  – Free Indeed Ministries

Have you ever heard anyone ask this question
?
“After we are born again, can we ever come out from under God’s grace?”

Beloved . . . it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort (admonish) you that you should earnestly contend for the faith, which was once delivered to the saints. For certain men have crept in unawares . . . . turning the Grace of our God into lasciviousness (filthy wantonness and vice), and denying the Only LORD God (Yehuwah Elohim), and our Lord (Adoni – Sovereign King) Jesus Christ !”     Jude 1:3-4
