The Price of Our Freedom ?

woman-forgiven-2     “In all this conflict with the powers of evil, there was ever before Christ the darkened shadow (Matthew 27:46) into which He Himself must enter . . . Ever before Him was the price which He must pay for the ransom of these souls.   As He witnessed the sufferings of the human race, He knew that He must bear a greater pain, mingled with mockery; that He must suffer the greatest humiliation . . .     

     “My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?   Why art Thou so far from helping Me, and from the words of My roaring (moaning)? . . . I am poured out like water, and all My bones are out of joint: My heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of My bowels.      My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and My tongue cleaveth to My jaws; and Thou hast brought Me into the dust of death. For dogs have compassed Me about: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed Me . . . yea, they pierced My hands and My feet. I may tell (count) all My bones . . .

     They look and stare upon Me. They part My garments among them, and cast lots upon My vesture . . . All they that see Me laugh Me to scorn: they shoot out their lip, they shake their head, saying . . . He trusted on the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) that He would deliver Him: let Him deliver, seeing He delighted in Him . . .      But be not Thou far from Me, O LORD, O My Strength (John 14:10-11), haste Thee to help Me . . .”   Psalm 22:1-19     

14604589360ac88b4d     “He was oppressed, and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth . . . He is brought as a Lamb to the slaughter; for the transgression* (rebellion, apostasy) of My people was He stricken. Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise* (to crush, to crumble, to break in pieces) Him; He hath put Him to grief* (rubbed, worn, make sick, grieved, put to pain, made to be sorry) . . .     

     When Thou shalt make His soul an offering for sin . . . for though He were a Son, yet learned He obedience by the things which He suffered (Hebrews 5:8) . . . He shall see His seed (offspring), and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His hand. Yea, He shall see the travail of His soul, and shall be satisfied . . . for He shall bear their (our) iniquities !”   Isaiah 53:7-11

     When He raised Lazarus from the dead, He knew that for that life alone He must pay the ransom on the cross of Calvary.   Every rescue made was to cause Him the deepest humiliation. He was to taste death for every man. . . !”

– Youth’s Instructor, December 29, 1898

     “For in that He died, He died unto sin once (Daniel 9:24), but in that He liveth, He liveth unto God . . . That He might be the Firstborn (First Begotten) among many brethren . . . !”     Romans 6:10-11 & 8:29

     “Man is poisoned by sin; but a Remedy has been provided for the fallen race in the Lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the whole world!   Every hope that we have of Salvation (rescue, deliverance, freedom, healing and restoration) outside of Christ is a vain hope.

     We cannot dishonor our Saviour more than by doubting that He will save us. Whatever may have been our life of transgression (rebellion and apostasy), however deep may be the stain of our sin, there is One Who is able* (full of power) to save to the uttermost all that come unto God by Him.” ref: Hebrews 7:25

It is Finished (paid in full) !– Signs of the Times, March 10, 1890

     “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 (Christ) has signed the emancipation papers of the race.” – Ministry of Healing, p.89-90

     “Jesus is the remedy for sin. We may have intellect, but human intelligence can devise no way of Salvation (no way of cleansing or freedom); we may have earthly possessions, but that will not provide a ransom for the sin of our soul.   Salvation (deliverance, freedom, rescue, healing, and restoration) is the gift of God through Christ, and the Promise is, “Whosoever believeth on Him shall not perish, but have eternal Life (is no longer under the dominion of sin and death, but has the liberty of the sons and daughters begotten of God) !”      For God hath sworn, and He cannot lie . . . !

     It is not enough to have a nominal faith. We must have faith that will appropriate the Life-giving power to our souls. We suffer great loss because we do not exercise simple, living faith in Christ. We should be able to say, “He is my Saviour (personally); He died for me; I look to Him as my complete Saviour and I live !”

– Signs of the Times, March 10, 1890
     “For God is not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man, that He should repent (change His mind). For hath He said, and shall He not do it? . . . or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good ?”     Numbers 23:19

     “And faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God . . . as it is written, The just* (justified, made innocent, holy, perfect and righteous) shall live by faith !” Romans 1:17, Habakkuk 2:4, Galatians 3:11 & Hebrews 10:38     

     “God does not ask you to feel that Jesus is your Saviour, but to believe that He died for you (as your Substitute and Surety), and that His blood now (Today) cleanseth you from all sin. You have been bitten by the serpent, and as the serpent was lifted up in the wilderness that the dying might look and live, so Christ was lifted up, that whosoever believeth in Him (the spoken Word of God – Isaiah 52:1-3) should not perish, but have eternal Life !     

Moses serpent 3     Saving faith is simplicity itself. You must cry no more; you must cease to hang down your head as a bulrush. Look to the uplifted Saviour (John 3:14-15 and Isaiah 45:22-25), and, however grievous may have been your sins, believe that He saves you. All the remedies and medicines of the world would have failed to cure one soul who had been bitten by the venomous serpent; but God had provided a remedy that could not fail. “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved.”      Be not among the number to whom the Saviour said, “Ye will not come unto me that ye might have Life.” Oh, how He longed to save them; for while we were yet sinners (not waiting for us to make ourselves good), Christ died unto sin for us !
     Take the Word of Jesus (John 14:10-11 and 6:63) as more sure and valuable than any word that can come from the human agent. Thank God with your whole heart and soul and voice that you are barricaded with the rich promises of His infallible Word, so that the wicked one shall not touch you. God will give you the Holy Spirit, even though it may seem to you that it is too good to be true. “What shall we then say to these things?   If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not His Own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give* us all things?” Romans 8:31-32

– The Bible Echo, July 2, 1894
     “Who shall lay any thing to the charges of God’s elect?   For it is God that justifieth*. . . who is he that condemneth?   It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, Who is even at the right hand of God, and Who also maketh intercession for us !”   Romans 8:33-34

     “So likewise reckon (count) ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord (Sovereign King) !”   Romans 6:11

     And “being therefore justified* by faith (present tense – declared, rendered just, innocent, holy and righteous) . . . Today, if ye will only hear My Voice . . . we now have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ !”  Romans 5:1 ref: John 14:27-28 and Ephesians 2:13-14

     “For God commendeth (demonstrated) His great love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us . . . Much more then, being now justified* by His blood (Life – Leviticus 17:10-11 & Hebrews 10:10-17), we shall be saved from wrath through Him . . . !”   Romans 5:1-9

empty-tomb (2)     “For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if One died for all, then were all dead. And in that He died for all, that they which [now] live [by faith] should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto Him which died for them, and rose again !”   II Corinthians 5:14-15

     “That the Life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh !”
II Corinthians 4:10-11

     “We are to take God at His Word. The experience that comes through living (active) faith is the experience that God wants every one of us to have. We should reach out the hand of faith, and grasp the Arm of Infinite power . . . The simplest prayer that is put up in faith is acceptable to heaven. “For (but) without faith it is impossible to please Him . . . for he that cometh to God must believe that He Is (I Am), and that He is (I Am) a Rewarder of all those that seek Him . . .”   Hebrews 11:6 ref: Deuteronomy 4:29-33

     The humblest soul that looks up to Christ in faith is connected with the God (Elohim – Mighty One) of the universe . . .“Who upholds all things by the Word of His power !” We may walk (live) in the Light (the glory, the victory, the assurance streaming from the throne of Almighty God) as Christ is in the Light . . . !”   I John 1:7 and Psalm 44:3 and 89:15

The Path (Way) of Life ?

bethesda     “My son, My daughter . . . . attend to My Words, yea, incline thine ear to My sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes, keep them in the midst of thine heart . . . For they are Life unto those that find them (John 6:63), and health to all their flesh !”
– Proverbs 4:20-22

     “The Saviour in His miracles revealed the power that is continually at work in man’s behalf, to sustain and to heal him . . . Sickness, suffering, and death are work of an antagonistic power. Satan is the destroyer; but God is (our) the Restorer . . . !

     The Words spoken to Israel are true today of those who recover health of body or health of soul. “I Am the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) that healeth thee !” Exodus 15:26.

     The desire of God for every human being is expressed in the Words, “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” 3 John 2.  He it is Whoforgiveth all thine iniquities; Who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; Who crowneth thee with loving-kindness and tender mercies !” Psalm 103:3-4

     When Christ healed disease, He warned many of the afflicted ones, “Sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.” John 5:14. Thus He taught that they had brought disease upon themselves by transgressing the laws of God (Theos – Deity, divinity), and that health could be preserved only by obedience. 

     The physician should teach his patients that they are to cooperate with God in the work of restoration. The physician has a continually increasing realization of the fact that disease is the result of sin. He knows that the laws of nature, as truly as the precepts of the Decalogue, are divine, and that only in obedience to them can health be recovered or preserved. He sees many suffering as the result of hurtful practices who might be restored to health if they would do what they might for their own restoration. They need to be taught that every practice which destroys the physical, mental, or spiritual energies is sin, and that health is to be secured through obedience to the laws fruits-veggies-3that God has established for the good of all mankind.

     When a physician sees a patient suffering from disease caused by improper eating and drinking or other wrong habits, yet neglects to tell him of this, he is doing his fellow being an injury. Drunkards, maniacs, those who are given over to licentiousness* (immoral thoughts and practices), all appeal to the physician to declare clearly and distinctly that suffering results from sin. Those who understand the principles of life should be in earnest in striving to counteract the causes of disease. Seeing the continual conflict with pain, laboring constantly to alleviate suffering, how can the physician hold his peace? Is he benevolent and merciful if he does not teach strict temperance as a remedy for disease?fruits-vegetables-fresh-2

     Let it be made plain that the way (path) of God’s commandments is the Way of Life. God has established the laws of nature, but His laws are not arbitrary exactions. Every “Thou shalt not,” whether in physical or in moral law, implies a promise. If we obey it, blessing will attend our steps. God never forces us to do right, but He seeks to save us from the evil and lead us to the good. 

     Let attention be called to the laws that were taught to Israel. God gave them definite instruction in regard to their habits of life. He made known to them the laws relating to both physical and spiritual well-being; and on condition of obedience He assured them . . .

The LORD will take away from thee all sickness.” Deuteronomy 7:15. “Set your hearts unto all the Words which I testify among you this day.” “For they are Life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.” Deuteronomy 32:46; Proverbs 4:22.

     God desires us to reach the standard of perfection made possible for us by the gift of Christ. He calls upon us to make our choice on the right side, to connect with heavenly agencies, to adopt principles that will restore in us the divine image. In His written Word and in the great book of nature He has revealed the principles of Life. It is our work to obtain a knowledge of these principles, and by obedience to co-operate with Him in restoring health to the body as well as to the soul.

bread-barleynote:
The physical life is to be carefully educated, cultivated, and developed, that through men and women the divine nature may be revealed in its fullness. Both the physical and the mental powers, with the affections, are to be so trained that they can reach the highest efficiency.

     That perfection* of character which the Lord requires is the fitting up of the whole being as a temple for the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. God will accept of nothing less than the service of the entire human organism.

     It is not enough to bring into action certain parts of the living machinery. All parts must work in perfect harmony, or the service will be deficient. It is thus that man is qualified to co-operate with God in representing Christ to the world. Thus God desires to prepare a people to stand before Him pure and holy, that He may introduce them into the society of heavenly angels.

Perfection of character cannot be attained when the laws of nature are disregarded; for this is transgression of the law of God (Theos – deity, divinity). His law is written by His own finger upon every nerve, every muscle, every fiber of our being, upon every faculty which has been intrusted to man. These gifts are bestowed, not to be abused and corrupted, but to be used to His honor and glory in the uplifting of humanity. { Review & Herald, November 12, 1901} 

     Men need to learn that the blessings of obedience, in their fullness, can be theirs only as they receive the grace* (G5485 = Divine Influence) of Christ. It is His grace that gives man power to obey the laws of God. It is this that enables him to break the bondage of evil habit. This is the only power that can make him and keep him steadfast in the right path . . . !”

– Ministry of Healing, p.113-115 

Living Stones of Fire !

     “For ye also, as living stones . . . are built up as a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices (praise and thanksgiving), acceptable unto God . . . . That ye should shew forth the praises of Him Who hath called you out of the darkness, and into His marvellous Light !”   I Peter 2:5-9
ref: Psalm 51:14-19 and Psalm 107:20-22

     “And they that be of thee shall build the old waste places . . . yea, thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generaqtions. And thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in . . .

     Then shall thou delight thyself in the LORD . . . and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and I will feed thee with the heritage (inheritance) of Jacob thy father . . . for the mouth of the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) hath spoken it . . . . and His Word shall not return unto Him void !”
Isaiah 58:12-14 and 55:8-11

Yea, I have love thee ________ (your name) with an everlasting love, therefore with loving kindness have I drawn thee unto Me.   Again I will build thee, and thou shalt be built, O virgin of Israel . . . thou shalt again be adorned with thy tabrets (tambourines), and thou shalt go forth in the dances of them that make merry . . .

Our Freedom – Signed in Blood !

The Christian, Martial Arts and Eastern Mysticism ?

Or HERE to order the series as DVD – https://littlelightstudios.tv/?s=mart…

In this 5 part series, filmed on location at Amazing Discoveries, Eric Wilson answers many of the questions which Christians are now facing, as we see the practices of Martial arts, Tai-chi, Yoga and Eastern Healing techniques being brought into, and encouraged in the church.

As a student and instructor for more than 24 years in these arts, Eric learned the secret of the powers behind the Asian martial arts, Qigong, and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Now, through these messages, Wilson seeks to share the very real spiritual dangers behind these practices; secrets which the founders and masters have long sought to keep hidden from the novice and uninitiated.

In this first message of the Dragon’s Realm series, Eric reveals how he took that first step onto enchanted ground, and how these Eastern esoteric practices found their way into the west. Practices which claim to be healing, but in reality are but a subtle deception from that serpent of old.  Revelation 12:9

Through the journey of his own experience in these arts, Wilson shares what the LORD revealed to him as He was fighting to set him free. That through these Asian philosophies and practices, Satan is seeking to control the hearts and minds of mankind. And through their subtle teachings, introduce a shadow of doubt to the Truth and Verity of God’s unfailing and Life-giving Word !

This 5 part series takes you to the very beginning, and answers those questions with which millions of Christians are now being faced. Questions like . . . Where did martial arts come from?
Who where the masters and founders of these arts?
What role did the eastern religions of Hinduism, Buddhism and Taoism play in the creation and development of these esoteric art forms?
What is the spiritual “energy” attributed to their combat and healing techniques?
And from where does this power really come . . .?

Now, learn the answers from the mouth of the masters themselves. See how the dragon (Satan) is using these mystic practices to infiltrate the Christian church with spiritualism;
seeking to subtly blend Light with darkness, and Truth with lies, and preparing the whole world for his last great deception before the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

And learn of the One great Truth which came to set every captive free !
John 14:6, John 8:32-36 and Luke 4:18-19

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
