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

The Truth Shall Make You Free !

      In John chapter 8, Jesus has given each of us this great assurance . . . “Ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall set you free !”  Yet today, we see thousands of professed children of God struggling in the bondage of sin. So how do we take hold of this promise, and make it our very own?

Jesus goes on to say, “the Devil is a liar, and the father (source) of all lies.” So here is where the battle begins . . .

First, you must know above all else, who you are in Christ Jesus . . . . “Chosen in Him before the very foundations of this world.”  Ephesians 1:1-4  and “complete in Him, who is the Head of all principalities and powers !”  Colossians 2:10

     And “in Whom you also are (present tense) circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ (when He died unto sin – Romans 6:10 and 6:1-6 — you also died with Him, and in Him) !”     Colossians 2:11-12

     Today . . . “you are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God !”   Colossians 3:3
and because you believe God’s Word, and know that He cannot lie . . . “sin does not have any more dominion over you !”     Romans 6:11-14

For greater is He that is in us, than he which is in this world !”   I John 4:4

Quote –
     “Man is poisoned by sin; but a remedy has been provided for the fallen race in the Lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world . . . . “He has borne our sins in His own body upon that tree !”   I Peter 2:24 and II Corinthians 5:21

The LORD hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all . . . !”   Isaiah 53:4-12

     And our Mighty Redeemer last words as He hung on Calvary was . . . “IT IS FINISHED (paid in full) !”   and when He was raised again on that glorious morning of the third day, He shook off the dust of that darkened tomb, and looking back in triumph He cried . . . . “O death where is thy sting (poison), O grave, where is thy victory !”
I Corinthians 15:55

     And you were “in Him” when He spoke these Words of Life . . . O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself, but in Me is thine help. Yea, I will be thy King (Matthew 28:18-19), for where is any other that may SAVE thee in all of thy cities?  I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death. O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction, and repentance shall be hid from Mine eyes (I will not change My mind !”   Hosea 13:9-14

     Every hope that we have of Salvation* (deliverance, freedom, healing) outside of Christ is a vain hope.

We cannot dishonor our Saviour more than by doubting that He will save us. Whatever may have been our life of transgression, however deep may be the stain of our sin, there is One Who is able* (full of power) to save to the uttermost all that come unto God by Him. ref: Isaiah 45:22-25

     Jesus is the remedy for sin. We may have intellect, but human intelligence can devise no way of salvation; we may have earthly possessions, but that will not provide a ransom for the sin of our soul. Salvation (deliverance, freedom, healing) is the gift of God through (in) Christ, and the promise is, “Whosoever believeth on Him (the promise, the Word of God) shall not perish, but have eternal Life.” 
– Signs of the times, March 10, 1890 

For this is the record (evidence, witness) that God hath given unto us eternal Life, and this Life is in His Son !”     I John 5:11

     And quoting from that promise which our Lord (Sovereign King) and Saviour later spoke to Nicodemus, we read . . . . “Look unto Me, and be ye SAVED* (rescued, delivered, set free, healed and made whole), all the ends of the earth: for I Am God (Elohim – the Mighty One), and there is none else.

     For I have sworn by Myself, yea, the Word is gone out of My mouth in righteousness, and shall not return unto Me void, that . . . . In the LORD shall all the seed of Israel (children of faith – Galatians 3:6-7) be justified,* and shall glory . . . !”
Isaiah 45:22-25 and ref: I Corinthians 1:29-31

     Thank your Father in heaven outloud each day for giving you the victory through (in) your Saviour Jesus Christ. Then surrender your heart, your soul, your mind and body as His temple . . . knowing that you are verily His both by creation, and by redemption. And that “He is faithful Who hath promised !”

According as His divine power hath given unto us _______ (your name) ALL THINGS that pertain unto Life and godliness . . . through the knowing of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue . . . !”   II Peter 1:3-4 and John 17:3

     “Who are kept by the power* of God (Theos – Deity, divinity) through faith unto Salvation* (freedom, liberty, rescue, healing and restoration), ready to be revealed in this last time !”   I Peter 1:5

Quote –
     “When the soul surrenders itself to Christ, a new power takes possession of the new heart. A change is wrought which man can never accomplish for himself. It is a supernatural work, bringing a supernatural element into human nature. The soul that is yielded to Christ becomes His Own fortress, which He holds in a revolted world, and He intends that no authority shall be known in it but His own. A soul thus kept in possession by the heavenly agencies is impregnable to the assaults of Satan.”
– Desire of Ages, p.324

Quote –
     “Henceforward Christ’s followers were to look upon Satan as a conquered foe. Upon the cross, Jesus was to gain the victory for them; that victory He desired (desires) them to accept as their own. “Behold,” He said (says), “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

     The omnipotent power of the Holy Spirit is the defense of every contrite soul. Not one that in penitence and faith has claimed His protection will Christ permit to pass under the enemy’s power. The Saviour is by the side of His tempted and tried ones.

     With Him there can be no such thing as failure, loss, impossibility, or defeat; we can do all things through Him who strengthens us. When temptations and trials come, do not wait to adjust all the difficulties, but look to Jesus, your helper.  
  
     There are Christians who think and speak altogether too much about the power of Satan. They think of their adversary, they pray about him, they talk about him, and he looms up greater and greater in their imagination. 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 – Luke 10:17-19). Satan is pleased when we magnify his power. Why not talk of Jesus? Why not magnify His power and His love?”

– Desire of Ages, p.493

Our Freedom and Victory in Christ Jesus – Guaranteed !

     “O Israel, . . . thou hast destroyed thyself, but in Me is thine help. I will be thy King, for where is any other that may save thee in all of thy cities . . . ?” Hosea 13:9-14

     “Sing, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel . . . be glad and rejoice with all thy heart, O daughter of Jerusalem.  For the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) hath taken away thy judgments* (Galatians 3:13, Deuteronomy 28:15-47), He hath cast out thine enemy . . . . Yea, the King of Israel, even the LORD, is in the midst (heart) of thee: thou shalt not see evil any more . . .

In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem . . . My city and My people which are called by My name (Daniel 9:19) . . . Fear thou not ___________ (your name), and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack.   For the LORD thy God (Elohim) in the midst of thee is Mighty* (full of power, a Warrior, valiant and strong); He will SAVE !

He will rejoice over thee __________ (your name) with joy; He will rest (engrave) in His love, He will joy over thee with singing . . . !” Zephaniah 3:14-17, I Peter 2:5-9 and Ephesians 2:10 Continue reading

An Undivided Heart ?

     The powerful testimony of a woman in search of God –

     Are we merely content with a “form of godliness,” and yet do not see the power thereof in our own lives?   As we hear those words echoed Today, which were asked of the multitudes who followed our Lord and Saviour, saying . . . . “Master, what must we do, so that we also might work the works of God?”   John 6:28

    And to all, the answer has remained the same . . . .”My son, My daughter, give Me thine heart . . . !”   Proverbs 23:26   Are we truly willing to obtain by experience that one thing which is absolutely necessary to gain entrance to the Kingdom of God . . . to be begotten again through union with Him ?

It is our prayer that this woman’s testimony will both encourage and be a blessing to all that hear.   May our LORD and Saviour both bless and keep you !

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

Eleventh Hour Workers – an intern’s adventure at Little Light Studios

     “At the eleventh hour the Lord will call into his service many faithful workers. Self-sacrificing men and women will step into the places made vacant by apostasy and death. To young men and young women, as well as to those who are older, God will give power from above.
With converted minds, converted hands, converted feet, and converted tongues, their lips touched with a living coal from the divine altar, they will go forth into the Master’s service, moving steadily onward and upward, carrying the work forward to completion . . . !”                           – Youth Instructor, February 13, 1902

The LORD is not looking for talent . . . What He greatly desires is workers, sons and daughters of God, who are willing to surrender and consecrate their all . . . for His service !

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

Come in your need to Christ Jesus –

flowers 1  Those that call upon the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) in humble, fervent prayer, will receive the strength and grace* (G5485 ) that they need to battle with temptation and to endure trials. In coming to God, the petitioner must present Christ as his authority, Christ’s merit (worthiness) as his plea; and when these conditions are fulfilled, God has pledged His Word that heaven is open unto the cries of the penitent and humble soul. 

     The enemy will come to you, and say, “It is of no use for you to pray. Did you not do that evil thing?   Have you not transgressed against God? Have you not violated your conscience?” Answer him, “Yes; but Christ has bidden me pray. He has said, ‘If we confess our sins, He is faithful and He is Just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” I John 1:9
