The Promise is Sure !

      “And when the evening was come, they brought unto Him many that were possessed with devils . . . and He cast out the spirits with His Word (John 14:10-11), and healed ALL that were sick . . .
     That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying . . . He Himself took our infirmities,* and bare our sicknesses !”  Matthew 8:16-17

     “When the Saviour said, “Go, . . . teach all nations,”   He said also,These signs shall follow them that believe . . . 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 drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”  Mark 16:15-20     The promise is as far-reaching as the commission.

The Righteousness which is by Faith ? – part.1

Righteousness-Righteous-WDGSA1     “And the work of righteousness shall be peace, and the effect of righteousness shall be quietness and assurance for ever . . . !”
Isaiah 32:15-17

So many of God’s children are beginning to see that which the new testament Scriptures are so very clear upon. When Christ ascend up on high, He “sat down on the right hand of His Father,” “waiting until His enemies be made His footstool . . . !”   Praise the LORD, Halleluyah !

ref: Ephesians 1:19-21, Mark 12:36, Luke 20:40-43, Acts 2:30-33, Hebrews 1:13 and Hebrews 10:12-20

​      The Light streaming from the open gates of heaven is beginning to fall upon us, as never before (Joel 2:28-32). And many are for the first time beginning to see and understand, that which our Saviour spoke to His disciples on the mount of Olivet, just before He ascend to take the throne. Those Words mean everything to us . . . “All power in heaven and on earth, are now given unto Me (as the Last Adam). Go ye therefore, and proclaim the Glad Tidings . . . and he that believeth shall be saved (delivered, rescued, set free, healed and made whole) !”
Matthew 28:18-19 & Mark 16:15-20 and I Corinthians 15:45

Chosen in Him . . . ?

ascension     There has been one promise of Scripture which the Lord Jesus Christ has been bringing to my remembrance repeatedly over the last few months. It is found in John 8:31-32, where He tells us . . . “You shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free !”

And then I remember Christ’s prayer in the garden, when He cries to our Father on our behalf, and says . . . “Sanctify them through Thy Truth, Yea, Thy Word is Truth !”     John 17:17

In the original greek of the text, the word “Truth” literally means Verity, (verily so) !

So what Christ Jesus is really promising to each of us, is that we shall know the Truth, and the Truth (the unfailing verity of His Word) shall make us free . . . “For whom the Son makes free, shall be free indeed !”
John 8:33-36

The Truth shall make you Free . . . !

Jesus-heals-lame     And “when the evening was come, they brought unto Him many that were possessed with devils . . . . and He cast out the spirits with His Word, and healed all that were sick . . . !”   Matthew 8:16

“This world is a vast lazar house, but Christ came to heal the sick, to proclaim deliverance to the captives of Satan. He was in Himself health and strength. He imparted His Life to the sick, the afflicted, those possessed of demons. He turned away none who came to receive His healing power. He knew that those who petitioned Him for help had brought disease upon themselves; yet He did not refuse to heal them. And when virtue from Christ entered into these poor souls, they were convicted of sin, and many were healed of their spiritual disease, as well as of their physical maladies.

The gospel (Glad Tidings) still possesses the same power, and why should we not today witness the same results ?”

Freedom & Victory from Sin ?

captives freeBeing then (now) made free from sin, ye became (have become) servants of righteousness . . . !”   Romans 6:16-23

    “ Through yielding to sin, man placed his will under the control of Satan. He became a helpless captive in the tempter’s power. God sent His Son into our world to break the power of Satan, and to emancipate the will of man. He sent Him to proclaim liberty (freedom) to the captives, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free !

     “For it shall come to pass in that day,* that his burden shall be taken away (Romans 7:1-24) from off thy shoulder, and his (Adam’s – Romans 5:12-19) yoke from off thy neck . . . and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the Anointing !”     Isaiah 10:27

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.

The Glad Tidings of Romans ! – part 3

TheLeper     “And behold, a man full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus (Yehushua) fell on his face, and besought Him, saying, Lord (Adoni – Sovereign King), if Thou wilt, Thou canst make me clean . . .

And Jesus put forth His hand, and touched him, saying, I will . . . Now ye are clean through the Word which I have spoken unto you . . . be thou clean ! And immediately the leprosy departed from him . . . And Jesus said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole !”       Luke 5:12-13, 17:11-19 & John 15:3

“For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to Save them . . . !”
Luke 9:56 Continue reading

How May I be Cleansed ?

     “And it came to pass, when He (Jesus, Yehushua) was in a certain city, behold a man full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus fell on his face, and besought Him, saying, Lord (Adoni – Sovereign King), if  Thou wilt, Thou canst make me clean ?”    
Luke 5:12

     So many long for a Word of assurance, a Word of Hope, that they also may be washed clean, and be made whole again!   So many hundreds, and thousands, millions of souls battling day after day, to see a ray of Light. Struggling against apparently overwhelming forces, both within and without. Hear the Word of the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah), O soul, bound in darkness and despair !

“And Jesus (Yehushua) put forth His hand, and touched him, saying, I Will,
Be thou clean
!  And immediately his leprosy was cleansed !”     Matthew 8:3
