I have set before thee an Open Door – part.2

PilgrimOur Great Treasure House The Promises of God’s Word !

     “I Am the door . . . by Me (the Word of God), if any man enter in, he shall be saved (delivered, rescued, set free, healed and made whole) ! . . . and shall go in and out, and find pasture . . . !”
John 10:9-11 and ref: Psalm 23:1-6 & Psalm 34:8-15

We are pilgrims and strangers on this earth, looking for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. The path in which we travel is narrow, and calls for the exercise of self-denial and sacrifice, but God has not left us without help. He has filled His Word with wonderful promises, to strengthen and cheer His children. In these promises He draws back the veil from eternity, and gives us glimpses of the far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory that awaits the overcomer.

The Promise of His Spirit . . . Received through simple faith !

Pentecost2a     “Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you, but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power* (dunamis – miraculous, miracle, abundance, ability, strength, possible, to be able) from on high !”   Luke 24:49 & ref: Galatians 3:14

 

Ask, and it shall be given you; Seek, and ye shall find; Knock, and it shall be
opened unto you; for every-one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth;
and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” Matthew 7:7.

How many who ask a blessing of the Lord would be surprised should they receive their request. Of what is this want of expectation (lack of faith) that our prayers will be answered, a proof? Continue reading

The Economy of Heaven ?


Can God be trusted ?

     “Ask, and ye shall receive . . . . Seek and ye shall find; Knock, and it shall be opened unto you !
Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom.

   For with the same measure that ye mete withal (give unto others), so shall it be measured to you again !”     Matthew 7:7 & Luke 6:38

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon this earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal.
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through and steal . . . . For where your treasures are hidden, there will your heart be also . . . !”     Matthew 6:19-21
