The Victory which is Ours in Christ !

bethesda“But none of the ransomed ever knew
      How deep were the waters crossed,
Nor how dark was the night that the (our) Lord passed 
     through . . .
Ere He found His sheep that was lost.
     Far out in the desert He heard its cry–
Fainting and helpless, and ready to die . . .”

More than Conquerors through Christ Jesus !

     “And they overcame him (the dragon) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the Word of their testimony . . . and they loved not their own lives even unto death !”
Revelation 12:10-11     

     “Like the twelve apostles, the seventy disciples whom Christ sent forth later received supernatural endowments as a seal of their mission (a mark, a sign of the power and authority with which they had been vested – Luke 9:1-6) .

When their work was completed, they returned with joy, saying, “Lord (Sovereign, King), even the devils are subject unto us through Thy name !” Jesus answered, “Why are you surprised, for I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.”     Luke 10:17-18  and  Revelation 12:7-10.

     Henceforth Christ’s followers are to look upon Satan as a conquered foe. Upon the cross, Jesus was to gain the victory for them; and that victory He desired them (desires us) to accept as their (our) own. “Behold,” He said, “I give unto you ___________ (your name) power* to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy . . . and nothing shall by any means hurt you !”
Luke 10:19 and 9:1-6 and Mark 16:15-20

     The omnipotent power of the Holy Spirit . . . the Words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are Life ! . . . (John 6:63 & 14:10-11) is the defense of every contrite soul. No one who in penitence and faith has claimed His protection will Christ permit to pass under the enemy’s power.

     “The LORD is nigh* (near, allied, of kin, kinsman, ready, at hand) unto them that are of a broken heart, and He saveth* (to open wide, set free, to defend, succor, to deliver, rescue, to give victory) such as be of a contrite spirit (mind) . . . !”
Psalm 34:18

     “Plead my cause, O LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah), with them that strive with me . . . fight against them that fight against me. Take hold of shield and buckler (sword), and stand up for mine help. Draw out also Thy spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me; Say unto my soul . . . I Am thy Salvation !”
Psalm 35:1-3

     “O Lord (Adoni – Sovereign, King), open Thou my lips, and my mouth shall shew forth Thy praise . . . For Thou desirest not sacrifice else would I give it: Thou delightest not in burnt offering (Hebrews 10:4-7). For the sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: yea, a broken and a contrite heart, O God, Thou wilt not despise . . .

Do good in Thy good pleasure unto Zion, yea, build Thou the walls of Jerusalem (Daniel 9:19 and Revelation 21:12-17). For then shalt Thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, yea, with burnt offering and whole burnt offerings. Then shall they offer bullocks (selfishness, pride – bull-headed) upon Thine altar . . .”
Psalm 51:15-19

     “For thus saith the High and Lofty One that inhabiteth eternity . . . Whose name is holy; I dwell in the high (elevated, most) and holy (sacred, an Angel, a saint, sanctuary) place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit (mind) . . . To revive the spirit of the humble* (Matthew 11:28-30 and John 8:28), and to revive (to quicken, to recover, to restore Life in) the heart of the contrite ones !” Isaiah 57:15

It is true that Satan is a powerful being; but, thank God, we have a Mighty Saviour, Who cast out the evil one from heaven. Satan is pleased when we magnify his power. Why not talk of Jesus? Why not magnify His power and His love?

rainbow 2a     The rainbow of promise encircling the throne on high is an everlasting testimony that “God so loved this world, that He gave up His Only-Begotten Son . . . that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting Life !” John 3:16. It testifies to the universe that God will never forsake His children in the struggle with evil. It is an assurance to us of strength and protection as long as the throne itself shall endure. –

     “And they overcame him (the dragon) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the Word of their testimony . . . and they loved not their own lives even unto death !”
Revelation 12:10-11     

     “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession* (to profess, to speak aloud) is made unto Salvation* (deliverance, rescue, freedom, healing and restoration) …For the Scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on Him (The Word of God) shall not be put to shame . . . !”
Romans 10:10-11

The Joy of Our Lord – the Ninty and Nine

The_Good_Shepherd_and_The_Cloudy_SkyThere were ninety and nine that safely lay
     In the shelter of the fold,

But one was out on the hills away,
Far, far from the gates of gold–
 Away on the mountains wild and bare,
Away from the tender Shepherd’s care.

“Lord, Thou hast here Thy ninety and nine;
     Are they not enough for Thee ?”
 But the Shepherd made answer . . . “One of Mine
Has wandered away from Me,

And although the road be rough and steep,
I go to the desert to find My sheep.”

But none of the ransomed ever knew
     How deep were the waters crossed,
Nor how dark was the night that the Lord passed
through . . .
Ere He found His sheep that was lost.

Far out in the desert He heard its cry–
     Fainting and helpless, and ready to die.

Lord, whence are these blood drops all the way
     That mark out the mountain’s track ?”

“They were shed for one who had gone astray,
Ere the Shepherd could bring him back.”

“Lord, why are Thy hands so rent and torn ?”
“They were pierced tonight by many a thorn.”

But all through the mountains, thunder-riven,
         And up from the rocky steep,
There rose a cry to the gate of heaven,
“Rejoice, I have found My sheep!”

And the angels sang around the throne,
“Rejoice, for the Lord brings back His own!”

 — Hymn by Elizabeth C. Clephane, 1830 – 1869

The Gospel – What Really Happened at Calvary !

“For I am not ashamed of the Glad Tidings (gospel) of Christ, for it is the power of God unto Salvation (freedom, deliverance, rescue, healing and restoration) to every one that believeth . . .
     As it is written . . . The Just shall live by faith !”     Romans 1:16-17

So what really happened at Calvary ?

Forgiven –     “And you being dead in your sins, and the uncircumcision of your flesh . . . hath He quickened* together with Him (Christ Jesus), having forgiven you all trespasses !”     Colossians 2:13

Rescued –     “For He saith . . . I have heard thee _________ (your name) in a time accepted* (Isaiah 49:8-16), and in the day of Salvation have I succoured (rescued) thee . . . Behold, now is the accepted time* (Luke 4:18-19), behold, Today is the day of your Salvation . . . !”     II Corinthians 6:2

Redeemed –     “For as much as ye know . . . that ye were not redeemed* (loosen, atonement, ransomed in full) with corruptible things, such as silver and gold . . . but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a Lamb without blemish and without spot . . . !”
I Peter 1:18-19
ref: Deuteronomy 27:1 thru 30:20 and Galatians 3:10-13

Delivered –     “Giving thanks unto The Father (Matthew 23:9), which hath made us meet (worthy) to be partakers of the Inheritance of the saints in Light . . . Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the Kingdom of His dear Son . . . In Whom we have Redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of our sins !”     Colossians 1:12-14

Healed –    “Who His Own self bare our sins (Isaiah 53:4-6) in His Own body upon that tree . . . So that we, being now dead to sins, should live unto righteousness (Romans 8:2-4 & II Corinthians 4:10-11) . . . and by Whose stripes we are healed !”
I Peter 2:24,
ref: Isaiah 53:4-6 & Matthew 8:17 Continue reading

Together – July 2016 White House Mall

     “For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, Whom we have not preached . . .”   II Corinthians 11:4

PLEASE Note:     We are sharing this video for the sole purpose to warn Christians of what the Bible has prophesied will take place just before the soon return of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ . . .

We do not in any way endorse that which is being promoted by the founders of this event . . . Especially after see that the Vatican stands hand and in hand with this movement. Please take time to read prayerfully the Scripture below, as well as the short article at the bottom which reveals Rome’s connection.

     Jesus said . . . “Father, sanctify them (make them holy, righteous) through Thy TRUTH, yea, Thy Word is Truth (verity) . . . that they all might be one, even as We are One !”   John 17:17-21
and ref: 15:1-7 and I John 2:3-6* and I John 3:22 and John 8:29

Let no man deceive you by any means . . . For that day (of Christ’s return) shall not come, except there come a falling away* (apostasy) first, and that man of sin (lawlessness, not subject to Jehovah’s law) be revealed, the son of perdition . . .

Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped (served and obeyed) . . . So that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that when I was yet with you, I told (warned) you of these things ?

For the mystery of iniquity* doth already work (ref: Isaiah 14:12-17 & Ezekiel 28:13-19): only He Who not letteth (holds back) will continue to hold back, until He be taken out of the way . . . . And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit (breath) of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming . . .

     Even Him (Christ Jesus), Whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders (ref: Revelation 13:1-18) . . . And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish . . . Because they received not the love of the TRUTH (God’s Word – John 17:17), that they might be saved . . .

     And for this cause . . . God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie. That they all might be damned (condemned) who believed not the TRUTH, but had pleasure in unrighteousness . . . !”
– II Thessalonians 2:3-13 Continue reading

Blood on the Doorposts ?

9bb6cba8-6b14-4961-8eb6-c3f7e6247040     “The Israelites were required to sprinkle the door-posts with the blood of a slain lamb, in order that when the angel of death passed through the land, they might escape destruction. But if . . . instead of doing this simple act of faith and obedience, they had barricaded the door, and taken every precaution to keep the destroying angel out, their pains would have been in vain, and would have testified to their unbelief . . .

When the blood was seen upon the door-post, it was enough. The salvation (the deliverance, freedom, rescue, healing and restoration) of the house was assured. So it is in the work of Salvation; it is the blood of Jesus Christ that cleanseth from all sin . . . !

The LORD would have His people sound in the faith– not ignorant of the great Salvation (deliverance, rescue, freedom, healing and restoration) so abundantly provided for them . . . !

Behold, I Stand at the Door and Knock . . . !

Jesus knocking at the door 1     “No man can of himself cast out the evil throng that have taken possession of the heart. Only Christ can cleanse the soul temple . . . but He will not force and entrance. He come not into the heart as to the temple of old; but He says . . .

     “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My Voice, and opens the door (yields, surrenders their will), I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me . . . !”     Revelation 3:20

2016 – Pope calls for a “One World Religion !”

     “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship (obey, yield homage to) him, whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb, slain from the foundation of the world. If any man has an ear, let him hear . . . !”
     Revelation 13:8

     “When the leading churches of the United States, uniting upon such points of doctrine as are held by them in common, shall influence the state to enforce their decrees and to sustain their institutions, then Protestant America will have formed an image (likeness) of the Roman hierarchy, and the infliction of civil penalties upon dissenters will inevitably result. . . .

     The enforcement of Sunday-keeping on the part of Protestant churches is an enforcement of the worship of the papacy. . . .

     In the very act of enforcing a religious duty by secular power, the churches would themselves form an image to the beast (Revelation 13:1-18); hence the enforcement of Sunday-keeping in the United States would be an enforcement of the worship (service, homage) of the beast and his image.” –

Great Controversy, p.445-449 (1911 edition)

     “When Protestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp hands with spiritualism (Eastern mysticism), when, under the influence of this threefold union, our country shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and republican government and shall make provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods and delusions . . .  Then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working of Satan and that the end is near !”

Our Wilderness Like Eden . . . !

     “For the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) shall comfort Zion . . . Yea, He will comfort all her waste places.

The Open Door – Our Atonement at Calvary ?

resurrection2     “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He first loved us . . . and sent His Son to be the propitiation* (atonement) for our sins . . . !”
I John 4:9-10 and 4:19


The Mercy Seat is Opened to All

Christ was nailed to the cross between the third and sixth hour, that is, between nine and twelve o’clock. In the afternoon He died. This was the hour of the evening sacrifice. Then the veil of the temple, that which hid God’s glory (ref: Exodus 33 and 34) from the view of the congregation of Israel, was rent in twain from top to bottom. 

     Through Christ the hidden glory of the holy of holies was to stand revealed. He had suffered death for every man, and by this offering (II Corinthians 4:4-6 & Hebrews 10:10-20) the sons of men were to become the sons of God . . . Continue reading
