Showers of Blessing . . . why do we expect so little ?

     “Therefore . . . being by the right hand of God exalted (Ephesians 1:18-21), and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit . . . . He hath shed forth (gushed out as a fountain, poured forth) this, which ye now see and hear . . .

     Then said Peter unto them . . . Repent, and be baptized* (Acts 19:1-8) every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins . . . and ye shall receive the gift* (something given freely out of great love for the receiver) of the Holy Spirit . . .      For the Promise is unto you, and to your children . . . and to all that are afar off (yet in the outer court – Ephesians 2:13-14), even as many as the LORD our God shall call . . . !”     Acts 2:33-39

Quote –      “The church is not now the separate and peculiar people she was when the fires of persecution were kindled against her. How is the gold become dim! how is the most fine gold changed!     I saw that if the church had always retained her peculiar, holy character, the power of the Holy Spirit which was imparted to the disciples would still be with her. The sick would be healed, devils would be rebuked and cast out, and she would be mighty and a terror to her enemies.”   – Early Writings, p.227

note:   the character and righteousness (innocence, holiness and perfection)  of Christ Jesus is freely ours, if we will through surrender and living (active) faith appropriate it as our very own ! Continue reading

 Over Sin

woman caught adultery     “Behold . . . . What manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons (begotten children) of God, and therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not !

     Beloved, Now (Today) we are called the sons of God . . . . And every man that hath this hope in Him, purifieth himself, even as He is pure . . . . for ye know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him is no sin !”   I John 3:2-5

     “Now unto Him that is able . . . . to keep you Today from falling, and to present you faultless before the Presence (throne) of His glory with exceeding joy. To the Only Wise God our Saviour . . . to Him be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever. Amen !”     Jude 1:24-25

     “Have you heard about the evolutionary way of getting the victory over bad habits and sins? It is sometimes called the TAPERING method or the TRYING method, but generally, it just doesn’t work. Oh, it partially works, of course, because old age takes care of some temptations and sins, and time settles the rest when death comes. But do you know why TRYING does not work in overcoming the devil?” Continue reading

Liberty of Conscience ?

     “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away (apostasy) first, and that man of sin (lawless one, transgressor of Jehovah’s divine law) be revealed, the son of perdition !

Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God (divine, deity), or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself to be God . . . Remember ye not, that when I was yet with you, I told you these things ?”
II Thessalonians 2:3-9

“And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it (Judaea) depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto . . . For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be filled-fill . . .

     And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring . . . And when these things begin to come to pass, then Look up, and lift up your heads; for your Redemption draweth nigh !”     Luke 21:20-28
