Striving for the Mastery – The Crown of Eternal Life !

 Moses 2    “Transgression of physical law is transgression of the moral law; for God is as truly the Author of physical laws as He is the Author of the moral law. His law (Luke 10:25-28) is written with His Own finger upon every nerve, every muscle, every faculty, which has been entrusted to man . . .”

And every man that striveth for the mastery, is temperate (exercises self-control in both diet and chastity) in all things . . . Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown (one that perishes), but we an incorruptible . . . !”
I Corinthians 9:24-27

In the preparation of a people for the Lord’s second coming, a great work is to be accomplished through the promulgation (teaching and instruction) of health principles.
The people are to be instructed in regard to the needs of the physical organism and the value of healthful living as taught in the Scriptures, that the bodies which God has created may be presented to Him a living sacrifice, fitted to render Him acceptable service . . . Continue reading

Our Wilderness Like Eden . . . !

     “For the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) shall comfort Zion . . . Yea, He will comfort all her waste places. He will make her (your) wilderness like Eden, and her deserts (your dry and barren grounds) like the garden of the LORD . . . . Joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody !”     Isaiah 51:1-3

     “Then the heathen (unbelievers) that are left round about you ________ (your name) shall know . . . that I the LORD build the ruined places, and I plant that which was desolate . . .   For I the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) have spoken it, and I will do it !”
Ezekiel 36:36

     It is our Saviour’s great desire that each of us, as His sons and daughters, will take hold of these precious promises for ourselves, that through faith in Christ, our families, our marriages, our homes, and congregations may testify to the mighty power of the God we love and serve !

His Life and Victory is Ours !

Christ wilderness 2     “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us . . . !”     Romans 8:37

Today Satan is carrying forward zealously his work of temptation, and he will make many conquests over those who are not watching unto prayer. Christ was tempted in all points as we are tempted. Let those who are bowed down under trial and temptation, and who feel that their friends have forsaken them, think of Christ, of Whom God said, “This is My Beloved Son,” alone in the wilderness, meeting temptations more severe than any that are brought against them.

Let them not give up in despair, but reach out a trembling hand of faith to grasp the Hand that is held out to save (Isaiah 42:1-7 & 40:26-31).      Let them cast their helpless souls upon Jesus, Who, because He has passed over the ground knows how to deliver them that are tempted . . . .

Look and Live !

Moses serpent 3And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up . . . That whosoever believeth in Him (the Word of God), should not perish, but have Eternal Life !”

John 3:14-15 & I John 5:11-12

“And they journeyed from Mount Hor by the way of the Red Sea, to compass the land of Edom; and the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way.” The Lord does not remove all the difficulties and trials and hardships from the pathway of his people. He would have them learn to put their trust in Him, believing that the invisible God is their mighty helper. . . .

The Promise was made that whosoever looked upon the brazen serpent should live; and to those who looked the promise was verified. But if anyone said: “What good will it do to look? I shall certainly die under the serpent’s deadly sting;” if he continued to talk of his deadly wound, and declared that his case was hopeless, and would not perform the simple act of obedience, he would die. But everyone who looked, lived !

“Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” Just as long as we look at our sins, and talk of and deplore our wretched condition, our wounds and putrefying sores will remain. It is when we take our eyes from ourselves, and fasten them upon the uplifted Saviour, that our souls find hope and peace . . . .

Moses serpent1     “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up . . . that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have Eternal Life !”   “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto Me . . . And this He said, signifying what death He should die . . . !”     John 3:14-15 & 12:32-33

” The Hebrews in their affliction could not save themselves from the effect of the fiery serpents. God alone could save sinful, rebellious Israel, by His infinite power; yet, in His wisdom, He did not see fit to pardon their transgressions without testing their repentance and faith !

     They were required, by an act of their own, to show their penitence (regret and sorrow for sins), and faith in the provision that God had made for their recovery. They, on their part, must act. They must look, in order to live . . . . The act of looking showed their faith in the Son of God, Whom the serpent represented . . . !” Continue reading
