The Lineage of Majesty !

     “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called . . . . Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace . . . . THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS !”
Isaiah 9:6-7 and Jeremiah 23:5-6

The Mighty Power of God –

peter-john-and-lame-man-1426804-printWhy Not Now ?
BYJ.E.SWIFT

     THERE was a time when the servants of God had power with Him, and prevailed. In the first century, when the disciples of Jesus prayed, the earth trembled (Acts 4 : 31), and the Holy Spirit, like a flaming tongue of fire, rested upon them. Acts 2:3. When they preached a risen Saviour, men’s hard hearts melted, and they inquired, “Men and brethren, what shall we do ?” Acts 2:37.

     There was a time when those who were diseased sought unto the Mighty Healer, instead of sending for the vender of pills and powders; and when a humble fisherman could stand by the side of the lifeless form and say, “Tabitha, arise,” and the dead would live again. Acts 9:40.

     These things were common once; why not now ? Where does the Bible tell us that they must cease to be? —Nowhere.   On the contrary. Jesus tells us that “these signs shall follow them that believe.” He says, “In My name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up* (loose the hold of) serpents; and if they shall drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them.” Mark 16:17-18.

     Again: “He that believeth on Me (the Word of God), the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do, because I go unto My Father . . . !”   John 14:12

     These promises are sure to them that believe. Brethren, the trouble with many of us is that we do not have faith. We ought to be thankful that God in his infinite mercy has bestowed upon us as a people some of the precious gifts of his Spirit; but He is willing to bestow upon us all the gifts of His Spirit just as soon as we place ourselves in a position where He can consistently do so.      Let us search our hearts in the light of His Word and the testimonies of His Spirit, and let us return unto God, and see if He will not return unto us. The work is fast closing up. Soon the night cometh, wherein no man can work. We mean to be whole-hearted sometime; why not now ?

The Victory which is Ours in Christ !

bethesda“But none of the ransomed ever knew
      How deep were the waters crossed,
Nor how dark was the night that the (our) Lord passed 
     through . . .
Ere He found His sheep that was lost.
     Far out in the desert He heard its cry–
Fainting and helpless, and ready to die . . .”

More than Conquerors through Christ Jesus !

     “And they overcame him (the dragon) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the Word of their testimony . . . and they loved not their own lives even unto death !”
Revelation 12:10-11     

     “Like the twelve apostles, the seventy disciples whom Christ sent forth later received supernatural endowments as a seal of their mission (a mark, a sign of the power and authority with which they had been vested – Luke 9:1-6) .

When their work was completed, they returned with joy, saying, “Lord (Sovereign, King), even the devils are subject unto us through Thy name !” Jesus answered, “Why are you surprised, for I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.”     Luke 10:17-18  and  Revelation 12:7-10.

     Henceforth Christ’s followers are to look upon Satan as a conquered foe. Upon the cross, Jesus was to gain the victory for them; and that victory He desired them (desires us) to accept as their (our) own. “Behold,” He said, “I give unto you ___________ (your name) power* to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy . . . and nothing shall by any means hurt you !”
Luke 10:19 and 9:1-6 and Mark 16:15-20

     The omnipotent power of the Holy Spirit . . . the Words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are Life ! . . . (John 6:63 & 14:10-11) is the defense of every contrite soul. No one who in penitence and faith has claimed His protection will Christ permit to pass under the enemy’s power.

     “The LORD is nigh* (near, allied, of kin, kinsman, ready, at hand) unto them that are of a broken heart, and He saveth* (to open wide, set free, to defend, succor, to deliver, rescue, to give victory) such as be of a contrite spirit (mind) . . . !”
Psalm 34:18

     “Plead my cause, O LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah), with them that strive with me . . . fight against them that fight against me. Take hold of shield and buckler (sword), and stand up for mine help. Draw out also Thy spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me; Say unto my soul . . . I Am thy Salvation !”
Psalm 35:1-3

     “O Lord (Adoni – Sovereign, King), open Thou my lips, and my mouth shall shew forth Thy praise . . . For Thou desirest not sacrifice else would I give it: Thou delightest not in burnt offering (Hebrews 10:4-7). For the sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: yea, a broken and a contrite heart, O God, Thou wilt not despise . . .

Do good in Thy good pleasure unto Zion, yea, build Thou the walls of Jerusalem (Daniel 9:19 and Revelation 21:12-17). For then shalt Thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, yea, with burnt offering and whole burnt offerings. Then shall they offer bullocks (selfishness, pride – bull-headed) upon Thine altar . . .”
Psalm 51:15-19

     “For thus saith the High and Lofty One that inhabiteth eternity . . . Whose name is holy; I dwell in the high (elevated, most) and holy (sacred, an Angel, a saint, sanctuary) place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit (mind) . . . To revive the spirit of the humble* (Matthew 11:28-30 and John 8:28), and to revive (to quicken, to recover, to restore Life in) the heart of the contrite ones !” Isaiah 57:15

It is true that Satan is a powerful being; but, thank God, we have a Mighty Saviour, Who cast out the evil one from heaven. Satan is pleased when we magnify his power. Why not talk of Jesus? Why not magnify His power and His love?

rainbow 2a     The rainbow of promise encircling the throne on high is an everlasting testimony that “God so loved this world, that He gave up His Only-Begotten Son . . . that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting Life !” John 3:16. It testifies to the universe that God will never forsake His children in the struggle with evil. It is an assurance to us of strength and protection as long as the throne itself shall endure. –

     “And they overcame him (the dragon) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the Word of their testimony . . . and they loved not their own lives even unto death !”
Revelation 12:10-11     

     “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession* (to profess, to speak aloud) is made unto Salvation* (deliverance, rescue, freedom, healing and restoration) …For the Scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on Him (The Word of God) shall not be put to shame . . . !”
Romans 10:10-11

The Joy of Our Lord – the Ninty and Nine

The_Good_Shepherd_and_The_Cloudy_SkyThere were ninety and nine that safely lay
     In the shelter of the fold,

But one was out on the hills away,
Far, far from the gates of gold–
 Away on the mountains wild and bare,
Away from the tender Shepherd’s care.

“Lord, Thou hast here Thy ninety and nine;
     Are they not enough for Thee ?”
 But the Shepherd made answer . . . “One of Mine
Has wandered away from Me,

And although the road be rough and steep,
I go to the desert to find My sheep.”

But none of the ransomed ever knew
     How deep were the waters crossed,
Nor how dark was the night that the Lord passed
through . . .
Ere He found His sheep that was lost.

Far out in the desert He heard its cry–
     Fainting and helpless, and ready to die.

Lord, whence are these blood drops all the way
     That mark out the mountain’s track ?”

“They were shed for one who had gone astray,
Ere the Shepherd could bring him back.”

“Lord, why are Thy hands so rent and torn ?”
“They were pierced tonight by many a thorn.”

But all through the mountains, thunder-riven,
         And up from the rocky steep,
There rose a cry to the gate of heaven,
“Rejoice, I have found My sheep!”

And the angels sang around the throne,
“Rejoice, for the Lord brings back His own!”

 — Hymn by Elizabeth C. Clephane, 1830 – 1869

     Our Lord and Saviour is returning very soon, and He asks that every child of God will surrender our lives completely to Him, and help in this great work of reaching a world still lost in darkness, in doubt and in sin.

May our LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) bless and keep you strong in faith, and the unfailing power of His Life-giving Word !

the dragon revealed, down under, 2016, series, final events, last days, prophecy,

Into all the world . . . Will you help us ?

ascensionWe ask for your help . . .?

     Our Saviour’s last Words to each of us as He ascended up to the right hand of the Majesty on high was . . . All power in heaven and on earth has been given unto Me . . . Go ye therefore into all the world, and proclaim the Glad Tidings unto every creature; and he that believeth and is baptized* (Titus 3:5-7) shall be Saved* (delivered, set free, rescued, healed and made whole) . . . !”

Matthew 28:18-19 and Mark 16:15-20

     Since that morning in 2008, I have never forgotten the Voice of our LORD, when He spoke to me from His Word, and said . . . “Go and tell what great things the LORD hath done for you !”   My family and I have taken those words to heart. And knowing that our Lord (Sovereign King) and Saviour Jesus Christ is soon to return in the clouds of heaven, we do all that we can to share the Glad Tidings of the victory and freedom which He has wrought for every soul who is willing to surrender and believe . . .

     The work and ministry is now growing at an unprecedented rate. Each month we are receiving hundreds of emails and phone calls from people just like you. Many are hungering and thirsting for a Word of hope and assurance. Many are searching for a way to break the chains which have held them so long in bondage to doubt, and fear, and addiction to sin . . .

And to every person the Promise (Oath, Word) of God is both sure, and steadfast . . . “Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord (Sovereign King) shall be saved* (delivered, healed and set free) !”

But how shall they call upon Him in Whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in Him of Whom they have net heard?  and how shall they hear except there be one who proclaims?   And how shall they proclaim, except they be sent?

As it is written . . . How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of them that proclaim the Glad Tidings of Peace (Ephesians 2:13-14), that proclaimeth Salvation . . . that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth !”     Romans 10:13-15 and Isaiah 52:1-7

     Each month our family here at Isaiah Ministries is sending out, free of charge, between 400 and 650 DVDs and audio CDs, each one containing the gospel of Jesus Christ, and precious Truths from His Word. Each month we are being invited to share in person, the Glad Tidings of our Redemption and Salvation in Christ Jesus, often many miles away from home. And every call to speak is of the greatest importance, for only in eternity shall each of us know the influence and power we held in Christ, to win a soul to faith in Him !

Every month we are receiving new requests for Bible and literature from brothers and sisters in small congregations overseas, and to each of these God’s Word must be sent . . . !

     We are asking in faith for your help now . . . While there is still time you can make the greatest difference in another person’s life; a decision for eternity.

     We have now a new booklet which is ready to go to print, the title of which is called . . .”A Message of Hope !”   This is a collection of Bible promises and testimonies which point to the great sacrifice and hope we have been given in the death, burial and glorious resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. And of the victory and freedom which He is willing and able to give to all that call upon Him in faith !

It is our prayer that with your help, we may go forward, claiming the victories of our Saviour, and winning hearts to saving faith in Him. Please contact us at our email address, or phone number below if you would like to help.

You may also use our email below to send a ministry gift through PayPal. My family and I thank you so much for your continued prayers and support. And we lift you also each day in our prayers and in faith.

May the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) both bless and keep you, strong in faith, and the unfailing power of His Life-giving Word !
