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

The demon of Selfishness ? – part.1

Calvary2The Root of Every Sin !

Nevertheless, not My will, but Thine be done . . . !”     Luke 22:42

“When Judas joined the disciples, he was not insensible to the beauty of the character of Christ. He felt the Influence of that divine power which was drawing souls to the Saviour. . . . The Saviour read the heart of Judas; He knew the depths of iniquity to which, unless delivered by the grace* (G5485) of God, Judas would sink. In connecting this man with Himself, He placed him where he might, day by day, be brought in contact with the outflowing of His Own unselfish love.

If he would open his heart to Christ, divine grace* (the divine Influence upon the heart) would banish the demon of selfishness, and even Judas might become a subject of the kingdom of God . . .”   – Desire of Ages p.294

And Jesus said to then all, If any man will come after Me (be My disciple), let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me . . . !”   Luke 9:23 Continue reading

I am not Ashamed of the Glad Tidings of Christ !

OXYGEN VOLUME 13“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto Salvation (deliverance, rescue, freedom, healing and restoration), to every one that believeth . . . . For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to greater faith: as it is written . . . The Just shall live by faith !”     Romans 1:16-17

The gospel (Glad Tidings) must be received (believed, and appropriated by faith as our own) in order to regenerate the heart . . .”     – Our High Calling, p.104

As the Holy Spirit saith . . . Today, if ye will hear His Voice, and harden not your hearts, in unbelief . . . For unto us were the Glad Tidings proclaimed, as well as unto them, but the Word preached (proclaimed) did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it !”     Hebrews 3:7-8 & 4:2

The Law of God – Fulfilled or destroyed ?

Bible_101     The question which is now being asked by many of God’s children is . . . . If Christ came to “fulfill” the law, then what part did He destroy ?

     This is a vital Truth for each of God’s children to know. The LORD did not come to change His Law (instructions in righteousness) . . . “For He shall magnify the Law and make it honourable” (Isaiah 42:21) . . . . but rather He has given us the promise that He will change our carnal hearts of stone !

Verily, verily, I say unto you . . . Ye must be begotten again !”
John 3:1-7, James 1:18 & I Peter 1:22-25

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 character and tendency of modern revivals has awakened no little anxiety in thoughtful minds among all denominations. Many of the revivals which have occurred during the last forty years have given no evidence of the work of the Spirit of God. 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 . . . .

Begotten Again ? – sons and daughters of the Living God

     “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord (Sovereign King) Jesus Christ . . . . which according to His abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively (Living) hope, by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead . . .” I Peter 1:3

And Jesus says to you and I, Marvel not that I say unto thee, Ye must be born (begotten again) . . . . For except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God !” John 3:7, 3

This is the very essence of the Gospel, the condition upon which all our Salvation (deliverance, freedom and healing) and Redemption hangs. And it is this greatest of Promises, which our Lord and Saviour desires each of us to understand and to know personally by experience. . . . that we might become truly “sons and daughters” of the Most High !      ref: II Corinthians 6:14-18

You may contact Isaiah Ministries to schedule a speaking engagement, and to find out more of how you can help us to share the Glad Tidings of Salvation in Christ Jesus, while time remains.

God’s Law & the Glad Tidings of Christ ?

Bible 4A Personal Faith in Christ Our Greatest Need

     “For the law of the Spirit of (and) Life in Christ Jesus, hath made me free from the law of sin and death . . . . For what the Law could not do, in that (because) it was weak through the flesh, God sending His Own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and in exchange for sin, condemned sin in the flesh . . . .

That the righteousness of the Law (character of God) might be filled full in us, who walk (live) not after (by) the flesh, but after (by) the Spirit !”     Romans 8:2-4

     The thought that the righteousness of Christ is imputed to us, not because of any merit on our part, but as a free gift from God, is a precious thought . . . . The enemy of God and man is not willing that this Truth should be clearly presented; for he knows that if the people receive it fully, his power will be broken.

Buried with Him – Baptism and it’s Significance ?

baptism water 1     “For this is the condemnation, that Light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than Light . . . . because their deeds were evil . . . !” John 3:14-21

     “And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel (Glad Tidings) to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved (delivered, rescued, set free, healed and made whole); but he that believeth not shall be damned (condemned) !” Mark 16:15-16.

Preach the Word . . . !

Bread of Life1     “And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, no so much as about the door . . . . And He (Jesus, Yehushua) proclaimed the Word unto them !”   Mark 2:1-12

And they were astonished at His teaching, for His Word was with power . . . !”   Luke 4:32 & I Thessalonians 2:13

“To my ministering brethren I would say, Preach the Word. Do not bring to the foundation wood, hay, and stubble,–your own surmisings and speculations, which can benefit no one. Subjects of vital importance are revealed in the Word of God, and these are worthy of our deepest thought. But we are not to search into matters on which God has been silent . . . .

When questions arise upon which we are uncertain, let us ask, What saith the Scripture? Continue reading

New Wine in old bottles ?

     “Jesus (Yehushua) answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee,
Except a man be born of Water and of the Spirit,
he cannot enter into the kingdom of God . . . 

     For that which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born (begotten) of the Spirit is Spirit. Marvel not that I say unto thee, Ye must be born again !”      
John 3:5-7 Continue reading
