Accepted in the Beloved

There is always the tension in the Christian life between the “now” and the “yet to be.” However, what we are now in the eyes of God is what we shall be in practice when we stand before Him in complete, perfect sanctification in glory.

Even now there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus (Rom. 8:1). He has made us acceptable in the Beloved (Eph. 1:6). Indeed, we are complete in Him (Col. 2:10).

How do we explain this tension in our daily lives between our practical sanctification and our eternal position and standing before God?

The believer’s positional standing before God never ever changes. No believer is less justified than another. You are either acquitted by God or you stand condemned. You are either a child of God by adoption or you are an enemy. You either have eternal life, or you are dead in trespasses and sins.

Our standing before God, once we are His child, does not change. Our sonship does not depend upon our fellowship with Him. It is the other way around. Our fellowship with God depends upon our sonship.

There are degrees in our fellowship, but there can be none in our justification before God. Sometimes we are warm and sometimes we are cold in our fellowship, but our sonship never changes since we were adopted as His children.

Our justification is entirely above the fluctuations of Christian experience. It knows nothing of degrees or the rise and fall of our emotions. You are either justified by faith or you are condemned. We are “in Christ” and He is “the same, yesterday, today and forever.”

Christ alone is our righteousness and results in our right relationship with God. Christ is of God “made unto us righteousness.”

If a right standing depended upon our faith or our faithfulness we would be eternally condemned. It depends upon Christ’s righteousness accepted as His gift by faith. It does not depend upon our endeavors, but upon the finished work of Christ. “You are complete in Christ.”

How can this be true? We know ourselves all too well. We are imperfect and we fail. Yet God’s word says that we are complete in Christ.

Regarding the Christian’s acceptance and standing before a righteous God is concerned, God sees nothing from His throne but Christ Jesus alone and Him crucified. And since the believer is in Him and one with Him, he shares Christ’s place in the Father’s heart. No matter how unworthy the believer is in himself, he may know without a doubt that he is “accepted in the Beloved.”

You cannot be condemned if you are in Christ. Christ is without sin and for us to be in Christ means to be accepted in the Beloved.

Jesus Christ presents us to the Father clothed in the garments of His own righteousness.

Jesus represents us to God. We see God in Christ. God sees us in Christ. God was in Christ reconciling the world unto Himself. We in Christ are reconciled to God.

The Christian can never pray, “O Lord, look how pure and holy I am; look at me and preserve my soul, for I am holy.” That would be utter nonsense. We can only come into His presence and with humble gratitude accept His grace saying, “Lord, be merciful to me the sinner.”

Moreover, the steadfastness of our joy and the stability of our spiritual growth depends upon our keeping our gaze fixed immovably upon the one Blessed Object upon which the Father’s gaze is always fixed (Heb. 12:2).Selah!

But We Must.

Give the gifts that are right and good, and trust in the Lord. Psalms 4: 5 The Holy Bible The New Life Version

We need to depend upon The Holy Spirit to guide us to give the proper gifts to the proper men and women.

We need to offer the needy jobs not free lunches and give them money to blow on booze and drugs ( I see it a lot ).

Teach them to be contributing members of society not leeches.

Teach them to have self respect.

It is hard to do and we need to depend upon the Lord to provide the resources to accomplish this as well as the wisdom, strength and patience.

Believe me though it is well worth the effort to see somebody straighten their lives around. The change is incredible.

We need to give but we must give wisely. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Oh please my loving Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14 The LORD Shall Provide ) please always send The Holy Spirit to guide me on where best to invest my resources to help those in need and by extension guide them unto You. Please protect me from wasting these precious resources on those who do not appreciate them nor are willing to help themselves. I humbly request this in the name of He who only took time to help the needy that respected Him and His gifts of healing, Jesus Christ . Amen

Know That the Lord Has

Know that the Lord has set apart him who is God like for Himself. The Lord hears when I call to Him. Psalms 4: 3 The Holy Bible The New Life Version

Yes we have been set apart from the world to serve Jesus. We are His free will servants.

God like means we live, as best as we can, imitating Christs character in our daily lives because we love Him and worship Him. We are not perfect but our heart, minds and bodies are dedicated to Jesus and in service to Him.

So, of course, we who serve Jesus because we love Him and respect Him, when we call out unto Him He not only listens but speaks back with us in return. It is a wonderful experience.

Those who are servants of the King always receive royal attention from Him when we call out to Him. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Melech Olam (Psalms 10:16 The LORD King Forever ) for the honour of being Your free will servant ( I serve You because I want to out of an act of love towards You ). Thank you that whenever this humble servant calls out to His loving Lord, not only does the Lord instantly listen but also send the appropriate help as well. Oh what a blessing it is to be a servant of Your my Love. It is in Your glorious name I give thanks. Amen

Will be Repaid Many Times Over

Yes,” Jesus replied, “and I assure you that everyone who has given up house or wife or brothers or parents or children, for the sake of the Kingdom of God, will be repaid many times over in this life, and will have eternal life in the world to come.” Luke 18: 29- 30 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

This is the best retirement investment there is.

When we give up everything for Christ, He will give us everything we need to live a comfortable life in our elder years. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I have made plans for my retirement that went up in smoke.

There was land purchased in my younger years that was taken away from me to by the politically correct. I lost all my dreams when I lost that.

Then I fell for what I now believe were scams by an investment company and went broke. Being a slow learner, it took three times before understanding that investment was a scam. Again my dreams were shattered.

When I dedicated my life to service unto our Heavenly King He sent me all over the world serving under very strenuous circumstances with little materially to show for the years of effort. There was deep concern that my final years would be spent living the paupers life with nothing to show for decades of service as old age crept in.

It was taken to my Heavenly Love and He reassured me with Bible verse after Bible verse for about three hours that He would bless me in this life as well as our eternal one.

One night Jesus gave me a dream that I was walking down a dark deserted street and was homeless. Then a rich man came to me and softly demanded I follow Him. He took me to an apartment that had nice clothes in it, the apartment was nice and there was food in the refrigerator and in the cupboards. Then He informed me that as long as I was obedient unto Him I would never be homeless, wear rags or have an empty belly.

He has been true to His word then, I am sure He is good for it now that the elder years are creeping ever faster in this old boys life.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Ghmolah ( The God of Recompense. Job 11:20 ) that even though it looks like I am being a sucker and many times being abused in my service unto You, I believe Your promise to me to always take care of me including when I am in Your beautiful Heavenly home You have graciously prepared for me. It is in Your wonderful name I thank you. Amen

May you be blessed daily with the faith in our Heavenly provider that He always provides for all your needs. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Emunah

Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ Colossians 3:23-24 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

It does not matter if you are working at a fast food restaurant or are a nurse or if you are a garbage man or a police officer. When you are a Christian, your boss is the same. His name is Jesus.

Now, there are going to be times when you must say no to a physical bosses directive because it goes against Christs principles. To be sure you are going to suffer but it does not compare to the reward Christ lavishes upon you when You obey Him rather than man. It may not be an immediate reward and you may not even be rewarded until you reach Heavens Gate but Christ promises rewards to loyal servants and He never lies.

On the flip side of the coin, you may not be appreciated and even be abused by your employer. Take comfort in knowing that your reward will be just as great by Jesus because you persevered.

Great suffering for standing upon Christs principals is rewarded by even greater reward by Christ in His Heavenly home. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Emunah (God is faithful 1 John 1:9, 2 Thessalonians 3:3 ) that You are true to Your word to this humble devoted servant and I shall receive my reward if not in this life here and now then in eternity with You in Heaven for being Your obedient servant. I praise You in Your righteous name. Amen

May you be blessed with The Holy Spirts guidance and strength to always stand on the solid rock of Christs morals rather than surrender to societies shifting morals.

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit Elohim Ozer Li

The Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control. Galatians 5:22-23 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

The more we are obedient unto The Holy Spirit, the more fruitful we are in our daily lives.

One result of this is that there is a lot more peace in our daily lives and a lot less stress. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Holy Spirit Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper ) bless me with a fruitful life every day. Please use this fruit to encourage others to desire Your Holy fruit and seek its abundance as well. I humbly request this in the name of He who produces the sweetest fruit ever, Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with a fruitful day today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Gladly Send the Answer Man.

If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. James 1: 5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation  

When I was a teacher, my children felt comfortable asking me any question that intrigued them. Many times they were astounded that I quite freely informed them that I do not know the answer.

It is funny how many folks are too proud to admit that and try to fake their way through it. They only look stupider and stupider.

Later I would pray and The Holy Spirit would always shed light on the answer. When the answer was given in the next class and the children would ask how I got the answer, I gladly shared with them the not so secret to the answer to all of life’s questions, His name is The Holy Spirit. And, when you respectfully ask Jehovah, He will gladly send the answer man ( well okay, He is not a man but it sounds nice lol ).

“[Christians], at their best, know that often they don’t know. They do not have all the answers. They do not have God in their pocket. We cannot answer every question that any bright boy in the back row might ask. We have only light enough to walk by.” Howard A. Johnson

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light Psalm 27:1 ) that when I am asked a question I do not know the answer to I do the wise thing and respectfully ask You for Your wise insight. Thank you that Your brilliant light of knowledge shines the proper answer for me to reply with. May this be a light to guide the lost unto my Beloved Father in Heaven. I humbly request this in the name of the Light of the World, Jesus Christ. Amen

Many you be blessed with the gift of the answer man to answer all of your lifes questions. Joseph a son of Jehovah
