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

Begotten Again ? – sons and daughters of the Living God

     “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord (Sovereign King) Jesus Christ . . . . which according to His abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively (Living) hope, by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead . . .” I Peter 1:3

And Jesus says to you and I, Marvel not that I say unto thee, Ye must be born (begotten again) . . . . For except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God !” John 3:7, 3

This is the very essence of the Gospel, the condition upon which all our Salvation (deliverance, freedom and healing) and Redemption hangs. And it is this greatest of Promises, which our Lord and Saviour desires each of us to understand and to know personally by experience. . . . that we might become truly “sons and daughters” of the Most High !      ref: II Corinthians 6:14-18

You may contact Isaiah Ministries to schedule a speaking engagement, and to find out more of how you can help us to share the Glad Tidings of Salvation in Christ Jesus, while time remains.

The Power of God’s Promises ?

resurrection2Wherefore, as the Holy Spirit saith . . . Today, if you will only hear His Voice !

     “God, Who at sundry times and in diverse manners spake in time past unto our fathers by the prophets . . . . Hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son . . . by Whom also He made the worlds !”
Hebrews 1:1-3 & Psalm 33:6-9)

The same power that Christ exercised when He walked visibly among men is in His Word. It was by His Word that Jesus healed disease and cast out demons; by His Word He stilled the sea and raised the dead, and the people bore witness that His Word was with power. He spoke the Word of God, as He had spoken to all the prophets and teachers of the Old Testament. The whole Bible is a manifestation of Christ (the Anointed One, the Anointing) !   ref: John 6:63


The Scriptures are to be received as God’s Word to us, not written merely, but spoken
. When the afflicted ones came to Christ, He beheld not only those who asked for help,
but all who throughout the ages should come to Him in like need and with like faith !

The Substance of Things hoped for !

Bible - Isaiah_44-22     Why is it so difficult for us to believe in God ? . . . .
If Satan has cast his dark shadow across your path, look up in faith, and God will let His Light shine upon you and dispel the darkness !       Satan would like to have you cherish that shadow (of doubt). He would like to have you view God through a cloud of his own making; but we are to be in a position of faith and confidence in God . . . .

     Satan (the Accuser) will come to you after you have trusted in God, and will try to steal away the Victory that faith has gained. He will present your sins to you; but can you not tell him it is written, “The blood of Jesus Christ, His Son, cleanseth us from all sin?” I John 1:7.

     If you have repented of your sins, and have confessed them to God, you need no longer go on in doubt and despondency. God does not want you to stand under a cloud. He wants you to come into the Light, and to have confidence in Him, knowing that you have committed your soul unto His keeping, as unto a faithful Creator . . .  ! Continue reading

The Fight of Faith – how the Victory is made your own ?

rejoice2     “And I heard a loud Voice saying in heaven, Now is come Salvation and Strength, and the Kingdom (Sovereign, King, Reign) of our God, and the power of His Christ (Anointed One, Anointing): for the Accuser (Satan) of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night . . . !”   Revelation 12:10

     “Now is the judgment (tribunal, condemnation) of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up, will draw all men unto Me . . . !”   John 12:31-32 

O sing unto the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) a new song; for He hath done marvelous things. His Right Hand, and His holy Arm hath gotten Him the Victory ! . . . . The LORD hath made known His Salvation: His righteousness hath He openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.     He hath remembered His mercy and His Truth (Word of Promise) toward the house of Israel. All the ends of the earth have seen the Salvation (H3444 – Yehushua) of our God . . . !”     Psalm 98:1-3

The Prayer of Faith ?

Free-Christian-Wallpaper-Psalm-57-3-560x420     We are living in the days which have been foretold by the prophets of old. Days of wonder, days of darkness and yet also of Promised great Light !   For the dragon has come down unto us having great wrath, for he knoweth that he hath but a very short time . . . !

And now, even Today, the LORD is calling us to stand. For each and every one of us to take unto you the whole armour of God (Elohim – Divinity, and power), that we may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, To Stand . . . !

To all of our brothers and sisters in Yehushua (Jesus), we encourage you to read through this prayer of faith when you have a few minutes alone with your Father in heaven. And as you read, remember the admonition of the LORD.  “For faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God ! . . . And Thy Word is Truth ! . . . For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession (profession, to speak) is made unto Salvation !”
ref: Romans 10:17, John 17:17 & Romans 10:8-11 Continue reading

Victory – and the Battle Within ?

Yehuwah's MountainVictory of the Spirit over flesh
Galatians 5:16-18
A.T. Jones,  – Sept 18, 1900

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust (carnal desires) of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth (warreth) against the Spirit and the Spirit against the flesh and these are contrary the one to the other, so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of (by) the Spirit, ye are not under the law.”

For the law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus (Moshiac Yehushua) hath made us free from the law of sin and death . . . . !”     Romans 8:2 Continue reading

Gold through the Fire !

     “Who among us shall dwell with the
devouring Fire? who among us shall dwell
with everlasting burnings?
. . .  for our God
is a consuming Fire
!”   Isaiah 33:14 & Hebrews 12:29

Beloved (of the LORD), think it not strange
concerning the fiery trial which is to try you (to refi
ne
you as gold passed through
the fire), as though some
strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice ! . . .
in as much as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings (the fight of Faith);
that when His glory shall be revealed (in you) . . . for it is Christ in you, the Hope of glory ! . . . ye may be glad also with exceeding joy !”
I Peter 4:12-13 & Colossians 1:27 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
