The Children of Faith !

     “For what saith the Scripture?   Abraham believed God (Elohim), and it was counted unto him for (as) righteousness . . .  Therefore it is of (by) faith, that it might be by Grace (the Divine Influence upon the heart); to the end that the Promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham . . . !”   Romans 4:3,16

“Know therefore that they which are seed of (by) faith, the same are the children of Abraham . . . and are Blessed with faithful Abraham !”   Galatians 3:7-9

“That the Blessing (spoken by God) of Abraham might come on the gentiles through Jesus Christ (Yehushua ha Moshiac); that we might receive the Promise of the Spirit through faith . . . and faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God !”
Galatians 3:14 & Romans 10:17 Continue reading

Partakers of the Divine Nature ?

     “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious (blood bought) Promises ! that by these promises ye might be partakers of the Divine Nature,* having escaped the corruption (death and decay) which is in the world through lust (carnal desire) !”     II Peter 1:4

“In contemplating the incarnation of Christ in humanity, we stand baffled before an unfathomable mystery, that the human mind cannot comprehend . . . . Far higher than any of the angels, equal with the Father in dignity and glory, and yet wearing the garb of humanity! Divinity and humanity were mysteriously combined, and man and God became one. It is in this union that we find the hope of our fallen race . . . !” Continue reading

The Living Bread from Heaven? -part 2

     “For as the Rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth . . . for the LORD God (Yehuwah Elohim) formed man of the dust (clay) of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the Breath of Life . . . and maketh it bring forth and bud (fruits of the Spirit), that it may give Seed to the sower, and Bread to the eater. So shall My Word be that goeth out of My mouth . . .

    It shall not return unto Me void, but It shall accomplish that which I please,
and It shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent It . . . !”     Isaiah 55:10-11 Continue reading

In Moments of despair ?

    Darkness may seem to enclose you, but you are not to look at the clouds. Beyond the darkest cloud there is an ever-shining Light. The Lord has Light for every soul. Open the door of the heart to hope, peace, and joy. Jesus says, “These things have I spoken unto you, that My joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full” (John 15:11).

Rejoice not against me, o mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise ! When I sit in darkness, The LORD shall be a Light unto me ! For . . .

Thy Word is a Lamp unto my feet, and a Light into my path !”
Micah 7:7-9 & Psalm 119:105

The Gift of the Spirit ?

     The special thought to which attention is called in this reading is the idea that an indwelling Christ is the Life and Power of the gospel, and the Life and Power of our experience in the gospel.

To many minds this is simply a theoretical idea, something that is talked about; but to have Jesus Christ abiding in us and dwelling in us as our Life and Power, as our Wisdom, as our Righteousness, as our all and in all, is an experience which many do not enter into; but the Scriptures teach distinctly that our hope is in this experience. The gospel is set forth as being Christ in you, the hope of glory ! Continue reading

In the Shadow of the Almighty !

     If you would stand through the time of trouble, you must know Christ ! . . . and appropriate the gift of His Righteousness, which He imputes to the repentant sinner .  .  . Human wisdom will not avail to devise a plan of Salvation.

     “What is justification (righteousness) by faith? — It is the work of God in laying the glory of man in the dust, and doing for man that which it is not in his power to do for himself. When men see their own nothingness, they are prepared to be clothed with the Righteousness of Christ. When they begin to praise and exalt God all the day long, then by beholding they are becoming changed into the same image . . . !”                                         – Special Testimonies to Ministers and Workers, 9 p.62 Continue reading

The Last Great Message !

Can you hear the Loud Cry beginning to Sound ?

Many such will be seen hastening hither and thither, constrained by the Spirit of God to give the Light to those in darkness. The Truth is as a fire in their bones, filling them with a burning desire to enlighten those who sit in darkness (doubt, fear and sin). Many, even among the uneducated, will proclaim the Word of the LORD ! . . .

Search the Scriptures; for they are they that testify of Him. If you would stand through the time of trouble, you must know Christ, and appropriate the Gift of His Righteousness, which He imputes to the repentant sinner. Continue reading

The Unconquerable Life !

     “In Him was Life and the Life was the Light of men. And the Light shineth in the darkness and the darkness comprehended (apprehended) it not !” John 1:4-5

Christ, the Light of the world, dwelling in the hearts (sanctuary) of His followers, constitutes them the Light of the world. Their light comes not from themselves but from Christ, who dwells in them. Their life is not from themselves, but it is the life of Christ manifest in their mortal flesh.

Christ in you, the Hope of glory !” Colossians 1:27. This is what it is
to live “a Christian life.” Continue reading

The Just shall Live by Faith ?

For I am not ashamed of the gospel (Glad Tidings) of Jesus Christ: for it is the power of GOD unto Salvation to every one that believeth . . . . For therein is the Righteousness of GOD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, The just (innocent, righteous, holy) shall live by faith !”     Romans 1:16-17

     Now the same One . . .Who said, “Let there be light, and there was light,” the same One Who on earth spoke “the Word only,” and the sick were healed, the lepers were cleansed, and the dead were raised to Life again — this same One speaks the Righteousness of God unto and upon all that believe !

The Alpha of Faith !

Looking unto Jesus (Yehushua), the Author and Finisher of our faith . . . for faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of GOD !”
Hebrews 12:2 & Romans 10:17

Faith is the expecting the Word of God to do what It says and the depending upon that Word to do what It says !

For the just shall live by faith !”    Romans 1:17 Continue reading
