You are Complete in Him! – part.2

Jesus tomb1     “According as He hath chosen us in Him, before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love . . . wherein He hath made us accepted in the Beloved !”     Ephesians 1:4-6

“For God so loved this world, that He gave His Only-Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have Everlasting Life.” John 3:16. This message is for the world, for “whosoever” means that any and all who comply with the condition may share the Blessing (ref: Galatians 3:14).

All who look unto Jesus, believing in Him as their personal Saviour, shall “not perish, but have everlasting Life.” Every provision has been made that we may have the everlasting reward. Christ is our sacrifice, our Substitute, our Surety, our Divine intercessor; He is made unto us Righteousness, Sanctification, and Redemption. “For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures (shadows) of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the Presence of God for us.” Hebrews 9:24 Continue reading

He is Mighty to Save . . . !

    “Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in His apparel (the robe of His righteousness) travelling in the greatness of His strength? . . . I that speak in righteousness, am mighty to save !”

Isaiah 63:1, ref: Revelation 19:11-16 & Isaiah 61:1-3

Jesus knows the circumstances of every soul. The greater the sinner’s guilt, the more he needs the Saviour. His heart of divine love and sympathy is drawn out most of all for the one who is the most hopelessly entangled in the snares of the enemy. With His own blood He has signed the emancipation papers of the race !

     Jesus does not desire those who have been purchased at such a cost to become the sport of the enemy’s temptations. He does not desire us to be overcome and perish. He Who curbed the lions in their den, and walked with His faithful witnesses amid the fiery flames, is just as ready to work in our behalf, to subdue every evil in our nature.

Today He is standing at the altar of mercy, presenting before God the prayers of those who desire His help. He turns no weeping, contrite one away. Freely will He pardon all who come to Him for forgiveness and Restoration. He does not tell to any all that He might reveal, but He bids every trembling soul take courage. Whosoever will, may take hold of God’s strength, and make peace with Him, and He will make peace !   ref: Isaiah 27:5

     The souls that turn to Him for refuge, Jesus lifts above the accusing and the strife of tongues (ref: Romans 8:31-34). No man or evil angel can impeach these souls. Christ unites them to His Own Divine-human nature.
ref: II Peter 1:4

     These precious Words every soul that abides in Christ may make his own. You (he) may say:

          “I will look unto the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah);
           I will wait for the God (Elohim – Might One) of my Salvation (deliverance, freedom, healing & restoration) 
           My God will hear me.

           Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy;
           When I fall, I shall arise . . . . When I sit in darkness,
           The LORD shall be a Light unto me.

          He will again have compassion on us (even on me),
           He will blot out our iniquities . . . . Yea, Thou wilt cast all our sins into the depths
of
the sea!”   Micah 7:7, 8, 19,                                 Noyes’s translation.

     God has promised:

          “I will make a man more precious than fine gold; Even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.”
                                                                                                                                                Isaiah 13:12.
          “Though ye have lain among the pots (as a harlot),
           Yet shall ye be as the wings of a dove covered with silver,
           And her feathers with yellow gold.”   Psalm 68:13 & ref: Jeremiah 3:1-23

     Those whom Christ has forgiven most will love Him most. These are they who in the final day will stand nearest to His throne. “They shall see His face; and His name shall be in their foreheads.”     Revelation 22:4.

I have heard My people’s cry . . . !

     “There are many who long to help others, but they feel that they have no spiritual strength or Light to impart. Let them present their petitions at the Throne of Grace. Plead for the Holy Spirit. For God stands back of every Promise He has made.

With your Bible in your hands say, I have done as Thou hast said. I present Thy Promise,Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you !”   We must not only pray in Christ’s name, but by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit . . . . “the Words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are Life !” . . . .

This explains what is meant when it is said that the Spirit “maketh intercession for us, with groanings which cannot be uttered.” Romans 8:26. Such prayer God delights to answer !    When with earnestness and intensity we breathe a prayer in the name of Christ, there is in that very intensity a pledge from God that He is about to answer our prayer “exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think.” Ephesians 3:20.

     Christ has said, “What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” Mark 11:24. “Whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” John 14:13.

And the beloved John, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, speaks with great plainness and assurance: “If we ask anything according to His will, He heareth us: and if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him.” 1 John 5:14, 15.

Note:    And all that we must have, in order for us to know the will of God, is to find one place where He has made us a Promise in His Word. Just a single promise which says, He will cleanse us from all sin, iniquity and unrighteousness, that He will fill raise us to walk in newness of Life; that He will fill us with His Holy Spirit; that He will write His Word in our hearts, and give us freely His Victory over all sin, the devil and this world !

   And even that He will provide all our daily needs (for our families, and His work), according to His abundant riches in glory, by Christ Jesus !

Then press your petition to the Father in the name of Jesus. God will honor that name !   The rainbow round about the Throne is an assurance that God is true, that in Him is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. We have sinned against Him, and are undeserving of His favor . . . .

Yet He Himself has put into our lips that most wonderful of pleas,Do not abhor us, for Thy name’s sake; do not disgrace the throne of Thy glory; Remember, break not Thy Covenant (Oath, Promise) with us.” Jeremiah 14:21.

When we come to Him confessing our unworthiness and sin, He has pledged Himself to give heed to our cry. The honor of His throne is staked for the fulfillment of His Word unto us . . . !”     – Christ’s Object Lessons 147-148

The Days of Elijah !

Elijah cave     “And Elijah came thither unto a cave, and lodged there; and, Behold, the Word of the LORD came to him, and He said unto him, What doest thou here, Elijah . . . ?”     I Kings 19:1-18

For I (God) have not given you the spirit of fear; but of power, of love, and of a sound mind . . . !”   II Timothy 1:7

And perfect love casteth out all fear, because fear hath torment. And he that feareth is not yet made perfect in love !”
I John 4:18 Continue reading

Ask and Ye Shall Receive !

bird on a fence     “Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought (do not be anxious or fearful) for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat (food), and the body than rainment (clothing) ?

     O ye of little faith? . . . Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they ? . . .

   But seek ye first the Kingdom (Sovereign Reign) of God, and His Righteousness; and all these things shall be added (given) unto you . . . !”   Matthew 6:25-34 & Luke 12:6-7 Continue reading

Seated in Christ ?

ark of covenant 2       “That ye may know what is the hope of His calling . . . . And what is the exceeding greatness of His power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of His mighty power, which He wrought in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His Own right hand in the heavenly (heavens) places . . .

For GOD (Jehovah, Yehuwah), Who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us . . . . Even when we were dead in sins,  hath He quickened us (raised to new Life) together with Christ . . . and hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavens, in Christ Jesus !”     Ephesians 1:18-20 & 2:4-6

Press Your Case to His Throne !

Let us therefore come boldly to the Throne of Grace, that we my obtain mercy (tender mercies, compassion), and find grace (the Divine Influence) to help in time of need . . . !”
Hebrews 4:16

“The greatest victories to the church of Christ or to the individual Christian are not those that are gained by talent or education, by wealth or the favor of men. They are those victories that are gained in the audience chamber with God, when earnest, agonizing faith lays hold upon the mighty Arm of power.”

Power is Guaranteed . . . ! Continue reading
