The Windows of Heaven Opened ?

windows light heavenOur Privileges in Christ Jesus

      “To whom He said, This is the Rest wherewith ye shall cause the weary to rest; and this is the Refreshing; yet they would not hear . . . !” Isaiah 28:12-13 & ref: Hebrews 3:18-19 & 4:1-12 & Exodus 31:12-17

What think ye of Christ ?” What is He to you personally? Is your faith centered in Him as your Redeemer? Do you believe that He saves you from sin, and that He imputes to you His righteousness? . . . . The believing man, even tho he be unlearned, has a knowledge that can not be wrested from him. The one who trusts his Saviour implicitly finds the gate of heaven ajar (opened), and flooded with glory from the throne of God . . . !

Christ – His Deity and Sonship ?

abraham85The shadow and Glory Unveiled !

     “Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? Who hath gathered the wind in His fists? Who hath bound the waters in a garment? Who hath established all the ends of the earth? . . . What is His name, and what is His Son’s name if thou canst tell . . . ?”   Proverbs 30:4

     There has been a great deal of question recently on the Deity of Christ, if . . . as the Scripture clearly states, He is also the Son of Almighty God !   Can these two Truths be reconciled, without harm to either one ? Continue reading

The Gift of the Spirit & Life ?

Wells of Salvation     “Therefore with Joy shall ye draw Water out of the Wells of Salvation . . . and in that day ye shall say, Praise the LORD (Halleluyah !),  call upon His name, declare His doings (wondrous works) among the people . . . . For great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst (heart) of thee . . . !”     Isaiah 12:1-6

“Before He left His disciples, Christ “breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost.” John 20:22. Again He said, “Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you.” Luke 24:49. But not until after the ascension was the Gift received in its fullness.

     Not until through faith and prayer the disciples had surrendered themselves fully for His working was the outpouring of the Spirit received. Then in a special sense the goods (riches) of heaven were committed to the followers of Christ. “When He ascended up on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.” Ephesians 4:8. “Unto every one of us is given Grace* (G5485), according to the measure of the gift of Christ (The Anointed One, the Anointing),” the Spirit “dividing to every man severally as He will.”                                ref: Ephesians 4:7; 1 Corinthians 12:11.

The gifts are already ours in Christ, but their actual possession depends upon our reception of the Spirit of God.”

“He shall come down like Rain upon the mown grass: as Showers that watereth the earth. And in His days shall the righteous flourish . . . If ye love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another (more) Comforter . . . . I will not leave you Comfortless . . . I will come to you !”
Psalm 72:6 & John 14:12-20

Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the Words of My mouth. For My doctrine (teaching, instrcutions) shall drop as the Rain, and My speech shall distil as the dew . . . As the small Rain upon the tender herb, and as the Showers upon the grass . . . !”     Deuteronomy 32:1-2

“Hitherto have ye asked nothing in My name (in My authority, because of My merits, My righteousness) . . . Ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full . . . !”          John 16:24

The Abrahamic Covenant ?

Abraham's prayerAnd I will establish My Covenant between Me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an Everlasting Covenant, to be a God (Elohim – Almighty One) unto thee, and to thy seed after thee !”     Genesis 17:7

     As the Bible presents two laws, one changeless and eternal, the other provisional and temporary, so there are two Covenants. The Covenant of Grace was first made with man in Eden, when after the Fall, there was given a Divine Promise that the Seed of the woman should bruise the serpent’s head. Continue reading

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 . . . .

The Two Covenants –

What was done away at the Cross ?

“For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the Second. And finding fault with them, He saith, Behold, the days come, saith the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah), when I shall make a New Covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah . . .”
