The Word of your Salvation ?

ascension   “For our Glad Tidings came not unto you in word only, but also in power* (miraculous strength, abundance, wonderful, might), and in the Holy Spirit, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake . . . !”       I Thessalonians 1:5

     So many today, need to understand that there is Living (Life-giving) power in the Word of God !

The Abrahamic Covenant ?

Abraham's prayerAnd I will establish My Covenant between Me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an Everlasting Covenant, to be a God (Elohim – Almighty One) unto thee, and to thy seed after thee !”     Genesis 17:7

     As the Bible presents two laws, one changeless and eternal, the other provisional and temporary, so there are two Covenants. The Covenant of Grace was first made with man in Eden, when after the Fall, there was given a Divine Promise that the Seed of the woman should bruise the serpent’s head. Continue reading

The Children of Faith !

     “For what saith the Scripture?   Abraham believed God (Elohim), and it was counted unto him for (as) righteousness . . .  Therefore it is of (by) faith, that it might be by Grace (the Divine Influence upon the heart); to the end that the Promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham . . . !”   Romans 4:3,16

For Our Sake Also !

    “ O Trembling soul, say not that your sins are so many and that you are so weak that there is no hope for you. Christ came to save the lost, and He is able to save to the uttermost those that come to God by Him (Hebrews 7:25). You are weak, but He says, “My strength is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Cor. 12:9. And the inspired record tells us of those who “out of weakness were made strong !” Heb. 11:34.

Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities (weaknesses), that the power of Christ (Moshiac) may Rest upon me . . . !” Continue reading

     “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive . . . . And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; but the Last Adam (Jesus Christ) was made a quickening (Life giving) Spirit !”  I Corinthians 15:22,45

     “And this is the record (testimony), that GOD hath given to us Eternal Life, and this Life is in His Son !”     I John 5:11
