A Temple for Our God ?

court-yard-2   “What?  know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which ye have of God . . . and ye are not your own?

     Therefore, glorify God in your body, and in your spirit (mind), which are God’s . . . for you have been purchased from slavery to sin, at an infinite price . . . !” I Corinthians 6:15-20 and ref: I Peter 1:18-19*

     “When Moses was about to build the sanctuary as a dwelling place for God, he was directed to make all things according to the Pattern shown him in the mount . . . .

But Israel had chosen their own ways. They had not builded according to the Pattern; but Christ, the True temple for God’s indwelling, molded every detail of His earthly life in harmony with God’s ideal. He said, “I delight to do Thy will, O My God: yea, Thy law is within My heart.” Psalm 40:8.

     So our characters are to be builded “for an habitation of God through the Spirit.” Ephesians 2:22. And we are to “make all things according to the Pattern,” even Him Who “suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow His steps.” Hebrews 8:5 & 1 Peter 2:21.     – Desire of Ages, p.209 Continue reading

Our Freedom – Signed in Blood !

rejoice2     “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 . . .

     “Forasmuch as ye know . . . that ye were not redeemed (ransomed, purchased, atonement, bought back) with corruptible things, such as silver and gold, from your vain conversation (lives of vanity, wasted efforts at your own salvation), received by tradition from your fathers . . . . But with the precious blood* (Life) of Christ, as of a Lamb without blemish and without spot . . . !”     I Peter 1:18-19

     “For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls . . . for it is the blood (Life) that maketh an atonement for the soul . . . !”   Leviticus 17:10-11 and ref: John 20:17 and Hebrews 10:4-20 Continue reading

Cleansing of the Temple of the Heart ?

temple 2     “What?  know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit (John 4:24) which is in you . . . which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?”   I Corinthians 6:19-20

     “In the cleansing of the temple, Jesus was announcing His mission as the Messiah, and entering upon His work. That temple, erected for the abode of the divine Presence, was designed to be an object lesson for Israel and for the world. From eternal ages it was God’s purpose that every created being, from the bright and holy seraph to man, should be a temple for the indwelling of the Creator. 
     Because of sin, humanity ceased to be a temple for God. Darkened and defiled by evil, the heart of man no longer revealed the glory of the Divine One. But by the incarnation of the Son of God (His becoming a man), the purpose of Heaven is fulfilled. God dwells in humanity, and through saving grace* (G5485 – the Divine Influence) the heart of man becomes again His temple . . .

The Prayer of Faith ?

Free-Christian-Wallpaper-Psalm-57-3-560x420     We are living in the days which have been foretold by the prophets of old. Days of wonder, days of darkness and yet also of Promised great Light !   For the dragon has come down unto us having great wrath, for he knoweth that he hath but a very short time . . . !

And now, even Today, the LORD is calling us to stand. For each and every one of us to take unto you the whole armour of God (Elohim – Divinity, and power), that we may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, To Stand . . . !

To all of our brothers and sisters in Yehushua (Jesus), we encourage you to read through this prayer of faith when you have a few minutes alone with your Father in heaven. And as you read, remember the admonition of the LORD.  “For faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God ! . . . And Thy Word is Truth ! . . . For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession (profession, to speak) is made unto Salvation !”
ref: Romans 10:17, John 17:17 & Romans 10:8-11 Continue reading

Seated in Christ ?

ark of covenant 2       “That ye may know what is the hope of His calling . . . . And what is the exceeding greatness of His power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of His mighty power, which He wrought in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His Own right hand in the heavenly (heavens) places . . .

For GOD (Jehovah, Yehuwah), Who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us . . . . Even when we were dead in sins,  hath He quickened us (raised to new Life) together with Christ . . . and hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavens, in Christ Jesus !”     Ephesians 1:18-20 & 2:4-6

In the Shadow of the Almighty !

     If you would stand through the time of trouble, you must know Christ ! . . . and appropriate the gift of His Righteousness, which He imputes to the repentant sinner .  .  . Human wisdom will not avail to devise a plan of Salvation.

     “What is justification (righteousness) by faith? — It is the work of God in laying the glory of man in the dust, and doing for man that which it is not in his power to do for himself. When men see their own nothingness, they are prepared to be clothed with the Righteousness of Christ. When they begin to praise and exalt God all the day long, then by beholding they are becoming changed into the same image . . . !”                                         – Special Testimonies to Ministers and Workers, 9 p.62 Continue reading

Christ our Righteousness !

A Stone of Stumbling ?

“But Israel, which followed after the law of Righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness. Wherefore? Because they sought it not by Faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that Stumbling Stone . . . . and that Rock was Christ !”

Our great High Priest and Advocate !

Who shall lay any thing to the charge of GOD’s elect?

It is GOD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) that justifieth (renders just, innocent, free and righteous). 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 it is He Who also maketh intercession for us !”     Romans 8:33-34 Continue reading

The Law and the Blood – Why?

He Reaches Out in Mercy to All Who Will Listen...

Friends,
Brothers and Sisters,

A few thoughts on the law of Almighty GOD (Jehovah, Yehuwah). The Scriptures tell us clearly that, “without the shedding of blood there is no remission for sin.” Hebrews 9:22 and 10:18. But why blood? Who was requiring the shed blood of all those innocent animals? And Who was requiring the shed blood of Christ Jesus (Moshiac Yehushua)?

Was it GOD the Father, or was it His law?
