Christ Our Refuge

The Bible is very clear in its declaration that individuals who are not “in Christ” are lost and under condemnation. If you are not “in Christ Jesus” you have not escaped the condemnation and the wrath of God.

The apostle John wrote, “He who believes in Him [Jesus] is not judged” (John 3:18a). Paul wrote “there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:1). John goes on to say, “he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (v. 18b). The person who does not believe is already condemned and that condemnation of unbelievers is now in the present time.

“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life” (John 5:24). “He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him” (John 3:36).

The sole basis of this justification and declaration of “no condemnation” is the assurance found in the words “in Christ Jesus.” We were all condemned in Adam, but in the second Adam there is no condemnation.

Christians do sin and fail to bring glory to God, and we do suffer the natural consequences of our sins. However, we do not suffer condemnation because Christ was condemned in our stead.

The legalist tries desperately to please God by obeying the law in his own strength, however it is impossible. On the other hand, the Christian who is under the control of the Holy Spirit experiences the sanctifying work of the Spirit in his daily life.

By an act of simple dependence upon Jesus Christ the believer realizes his position in Christ. “By nature I am in myself, and in sin and I am, therefore, condemned; but when the grace of God awakens me up to know my ruined state, then I fly to Christ. I trust alone in His blood and righteousness, and He becomes to me the cleft of the rock, whereas I hide myself from the storm of vengeance justly due to me for my many offences. The Lord Jesus is typified by the city of refuge,” writes C. H. Spurgeon.

Is your righteousness one which you have worked out yourself, or is the righteousness of Christ imputed to you? Do you look for salvation by self, or for salvation by Christ? “If you can truly say, ‘I hide in Christ,’ then this text warbles sweeter music than ever fell from angel’s lips.” “There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” Spurgeon added, “Inasmuch as you have believed in Him, you are in Him.”

The promise holds true because the believer is “in Him who can never be condemned. . . If you are in Christ, there is for that very reason no condemnation to you.”

Christ fulfilled the law for you, and since you believed on Him you are justified in Him. “By Christ’s righteous life and substitutionary death, justification has come upon all who are in Him.”

“We are accepted in the beloved,” says the apostle Paul. “By the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.”

“Will the Lord condemn those whom He has made righteous?” Will He condemn those for whom He has covered with His own perfect righteousness?”

God has placed the believer in a living vital union in Christ. We have been made one with Christ through a living relationship.

Since we died in Christ and rose with Him, how then shall we be put to death again for the sin for which we have already died in Him? We who are in Christ are justified because Christ is justified by His rising from the dead, and by His taking the position of honor and glory at the right hand of God. “He is our representative and we are one with Him, and what He is that we are. Our union is inseparable, and therefore our condemnation is impossible.”

The Flame Thrower of Love

Satan is using the abuse suffered by a tormentor to extinguish Jesus’ light of love and fill it with dark hate. I pray for the Holy Spirit to be the flame thrower of love to destroy satan’s dark matter in our hearts. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

You are Storing up Terrible

But because you are stubborn and refuse to turn from your sin, you are storing up terrible punishment for yourself. For a day of anger is coming, when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed. He will judge everyone according to what they have done. Romans 2:5-6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jesus that You are a judge who passes judgment in a fair and unbiased manner. May the wicked be repaid seven time more for their vile deed which causes so much suffering to the innocent. I sincerely request this in the name of the Supreme Judge, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you have a grateful heart towards He who has given so much to you. indeovi vas ( may you live with Jesus in Latin )

Seleh- stop and think about it.

Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. 2 Corinthians 12:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jesus bless me with Your grace to forgive those who have abused me so that I am blessed with Your love, joy and peace. In this manner I will be able to serve you better, especially while encountering the wicked ones that love to torment me.

Please bless me to always reply with a gentle answer to extinguish the fires of hate and rage in those I encounter.

Please bless me to always behave in a loving manner to those who are hurt or are unlovable.

May this bless them that through Your grace through me it will bring them unto repentance.

Please Jehovah Jireh ( God will supply ) bless me with Your precious love, joy and peace so that I am be able to serve Jesus by serving others with love, joy, patience, self- control, wisdom and compassion.

You Will Always

For the kind of sorrow God wants us to experience leads us away from sin and results in salvation. There’s no regret for that kind of sorrow. But worldly sorrow, which lacks repentance, results in spiritual death. 2 Corinthians 7:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

The last sentence pierced my heart with great sorrow.

I know someone who is suffering greatly mentally, physically and spiritually every day.

All of her life she has been a user and abuser. She loved to cause fights. She just used and abused men and women. Now, she is old and her body is all broken down and she needs help.

Jesus sent His servant home to take care of her and she did nothing but abuse him and laugh about it.

Now, she is in constant pain.

Godly men and women have tried to get her to repent and stop it but she refuses to even admit her wicked deeds. I know the Lord has spoken to her in dreams and in sermons.

Again she just ignores Him as she did the others.

Jesus’ patience has run out for her.

But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness. They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. Romans 1:18–20The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

A catastrophe will strike you suddenly,  one for which you are not prepared. Isaiah 47:11 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

About three years ago her health took a nose dive and she has been suffering every day.

Yet, she still, refuses to repent.

Her son feels no sympathy for her because she showed no sympathy towards him and indeed made jokes about his suffering which she caused.

Warning: be careful of the seeds you sow tomorrow because you will indeed be eating the harvest of them.

Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. Galatians 6:7 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ghmolah ( The God of Recompense. Ezekiel 7:9 ) for paying back the wicked for the vile deeds which they delighted in causing the innocent to suffer. I praise You in the name of The Supreme Judge, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you have a grateful heart towards He who has given so much to you. indeovi vas ( may you live with Jesus in Latin )
