Who Shall Stand When He Appeareth ?

hourglassDear brothers and sisters,

     It is our prayer, that today, as many call to remembrance the first Advent of our Lord and Saviour to this world, that we may also take time to seriously consider His 2nd Advent, and His soon coming again in the clouds of heaven to receive His own !

     “Behold, I will send My messenger, and he shall prepare the way (My path) before Me . . . And the Lord (Adoni – the Sovereign King), Whom ye seek, shall suddenly (unexpectedly) come to His temple (I Corinthians 3:16-17) . . . . Even the Messenger of the Covenant, Whom ye delight in: Behold, He shall come, saith the LORD of hosts . . . ref: Psalm 72:6 & Hosea 6:3

But who may abide the day of His coming? and who shall stand when He appeareth?”     Malachi 3:1-2 & 4:1-6

     “Who shall ascend into the hill (mountain – Isaiah 2:3) of the LORD? and who shall stand in His holy place? . . . . he that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity (pride, self-confidence), nor sworn deceitfully . . . He shall receive the Blessing (Galatians 3:14) from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his Salvation . . .

For this is the generation (the children) of them that seek Him, that seek Thy Face, O Jacob. Selah !”   Psalm 24:3-6 & II Corinthians 4:3-6

The light which flames up for a time, soon dies out, leaving the darkness more dense than before.

Popular revivals are too often carried by . . . .

The Paths of Righteousness . . . ?

     “He leadeth me beside the still waters . . . He restoreth my soul, He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake . . .”     Psalm 23:2-3

Blessed are the undefiled in the Way, who walk in the Law of the LORD . . . . Yea, blessed (ref: Galatians 3:14) are they that keep His testimonies, and that seek Him with the whole heart. For they also do no iniquity, who walk in His Ways . . . !”   Psalm 119:1-3

What was Abolished in Christ ?

nailed to the cross 4     “And took it out of the way, nailing it to His cross . . . !”
Colossians 2:14

“The words ‘abolish,’ ‘take away,’ ‘destroy,’ and ‘change’ have been so persistently connected with the law by some public teachers that there exists in the minds of many people the honest conviction that all which is expressed by these words was done to the law by Christ.

It is true that He came to “abolish” something, and to “take away” something, and to “destroy” something, and to “change” something; but it is important that we-should know just what it was that He abolished, and what it was that He took away, and what it was that He destroyed, and what it was that He intended to change by His work in behalf of man. This we can easily learn from the Scriptures. Continue reading
