Showers of Blessing . . . why do we expect so little ?

     “Therefore . . . being by the right hand of God exalted (Ephesians 1:18-21), and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit . . . . He hath shed forth (gushed out as a fountain, poured forth) this, which ye now see and hear . . .

     Then said Peter unto them . . . Repent, and be baptized* (Acts 19:1-8) every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins . . . and ye shall receive the gift* (something given freely out of great love for the receiver) of the Holy Spirit . . .      For the Promise is unto you, and to your children . . . and to all that are afar off (yet in the outer court – Ephesians 2:13-14), even as many as the LORD our God shall call . . . !”     Acts 2:33-39

Quote –      “The church is not now the separate and peculiar people she was when the fires of persecution were kindled against her. How is the gold become dim! how is the most fine gold changed!     I saw that if the church had always retained her peculiar, holy character, the power of the Holy Spirit which was imparted to the disciples would still be with her. The sick would be healed, devils would be rebuked and cast out, and she would be mighty and a terror to her enemies.”   – Early Writings, p.227

note:   the character and righteousness (innocence, holiness and perfection)  of Christ Jesus is freely ours, if we will through surrender and living (active) faith appropriate it as our very own ! Continue reading

His Life and Victory is Ours !

Christ wilderness 2     “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us . . . !”     Romans 8:37

Today Satan is carrying forward zealously his work of temptation, and he will make many conquests over those who are not watching unto prayer. Christ was tempted in all points as we are tempted. Let those who are bowed down under trial and temptation, and who feel that their friends have forsaken them, think of Christ, of Whom God said, “This is My Beloved Son,” alone in the wilderness, meeting temptations more severe than any that are brought against them.

Let them not give up in despair, but reach out a trembling hand of faith to grasp the Hand that is held out to save (Isaiah 42:1-7 & 40:26-31).      Let them cast their helpless souls upon Jesus, Who, because He has passed over the ground knows how to deliver them that are tempted . . . .

New Light Yet to Shine ?

 

10 commandments & Jesus     “Here is to be found the secret of the lack of the Spirit and power of God in the revivals of our time !”

“If we would have the Spirit and power of the third angel’s message, we must present the law and the gospel (Glad Tidings) together, for they go hand in hand . . . .

As a power from beneath is stirring up the children of disobedience to make void the law of God, and to trample upon the faith of Christ as our righteousness, a power from above is moving upon the hearts of those who are loyal, to exalt the law . . . . and to lift up Jesus as a complete Saviour !”                    – Gospel Workers 1892, p.103

Now unto Him that is able . . . to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence (that is verily before His throne) of His glory with exceeding joy . . . !”   Jude 1:24 and ref: Hebrews 4:114-16 & Zephaniah3:14-17

Man’s first temptation & the Victory of Christ !

Christ's victory 2     “For we have not an High Priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities (weaknesses); but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin . . . !”     Hebrews 4:15 & 2:17 & Romans 8:2-3

     After His baptism, the Son of God entered the dreary wilderness, there to be tempted by the devil . . . . For forty days He ate and drank nothing . . . . He realized the power of appetite upon man; and in behalf of sinful man, He bore the closest test possible upon that point.   Here a victory was gained which few can appreciate. The controlling power of depraved appetite, and the grievous sin of indulging it, can only be understood by the length of the fast which our Saviour endured that He might break its power . . . ! 

     Intemperance (self-indulgence) lies at the foundation of all the moral evils known to man. Christ began the work of Redemption just where the ruin began. The fall of our first parents was caused by the indulgence of appetite. In redemption, the denial of appetite is the first work of Christ. What amazing love has Christ manifested in coming into the world to bear our sins and infirmities, and to tread the path of suffering, that He might show us by His Life of spotless merit how we should walk, and overcome as He had overcome !”

     “For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The Just shall live by faith . . . !”     Romans 1:17

And “this I say then . . . . Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lusts (carnal desires) of the flesh !”   Galatians 5:16
