Because Christ Lives

God supplies all of our spiritual needs through His infinite resources. The Holy Spirit indwells us with His power; therefore, as we walk in the Spirit, we shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. As we are occupied with Christ, we are kept from sin and thus “saved by His life” (Rom. 5:10).

“He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them” (Heb. 7:25). This permanent priesthood of Jesus gives Him the capacity to carry His saving work to completion. He can see them through every trial and difficulty right to the end of the road “because He always lives to intercede for them.” In saying this, the author reverted again to a truth he had already enunciated (4:14-16) where he had invited the readers to avail themselves boldly of the mercy and grace accessible to them through Jesus’ priesthood.

Therefore, the living Christ is in the presence of the Father interceding on our behalf and the Holy Spirit is in our hearts bringing us to repentance, confession of sin and reconciliation with God. We are saved by His resurrection life as we walk in the Spirit.

He saves completely, forever, all who put their faith in Him. Because He is our High Priest forever, He can save forever. “Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us” (Rom. 8:34).

One day we will stand before God complete in Christ and forever saved from the presence of sin. We will be in God’s presence and will never again be tempted by sin. In the fullest possible sense we shall be “saved by His life” forever.

God has taken us out of the category as “enemies of God” and has placed us in His family as sons and daughters. Because we are no longer enemies of God and are now members of His family, Paul reasons that He is certainly going to save us from the final outpouring of His wrath on the Day of Judgment. If He has saved us while we were enemies, He will certainly keep on saving us now that we are His children. Because we are now His friends God is not going to change His mind and cast us aside. He forever remains the same. Yes, there is a “wrath to come,” but no true believer will experience it (1 Thess. 1:9–105:8–10).

We rejoice in the “hope of glory of God” because our living Savior guarantees our glorification. There is much more in store for the believer. Moreover, the greatest demonstration of the power of God was displayed at the cross of Calvary when Satan and his hosts were defeated.

In our blessed union with Christ, we stand with Him on the resurrection side of death. The work of Christ for us leads to His work in us to deliver us from the power of sin. We are in this sense saved by His resurrection life. We now live in union with the risen Redeemer who died for us and rose again. Life, peace and righteousness are ours in this new life in Christ. The very life which is in Christ in glory is also ours.

It is the living Christ, through His Spirit within us, who leads us, prompts our inner being, inspires us to holy purpose and molds our character to be conformed to His image. The more we make ourselves available to Him the deeper becomes our awareness of that intimate relationship with Him. The life we live, we live by faith in the risen Christ.

Because He lives, we are eternally saved (Heb. 7:23–25).

SELAH! Pause – reflect- just think of that!

But God Will Be

Then Jacob said to Joseph, “Look, I am about to die, but God will be with you and will take you back to Canaan, the land of your ancestors. Genesis 48:21 The Holy Bible ,The New Living Translation

Many times we have to part ways with Godly mentors but that is okay because The Holy Spirit it always with us and guides us along The Path to Heaven that Jesus has chosen for us to follow.

That has happened so many times in my life.

Someone I greatly admire and I part ways and I feel as if I am the only one in the world.

That is good because although Godly mentors are important it is more important that they are not placed above The Trinity.

As well, that Godly mentor can only lead us so far and then The Holy Spirit will guide us to another one to continue on the journey like a relay race.

Boy, has that happened a lot in my life as well.

Oh, and do not forget that at some point you will be a mentor to someone as well. It will happen numerous times.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14 The LORD Shall Provide ) for blessing me with so many wonderful mentors along the Path to Heaven You have chosen for me to travel in this life. Thank you as well for the many opportunities I have had to be a righteous mentor to others. I praise You in the name of the best mentor, Jesus Christ. Amen

SELAH!

SELAH! Pause – reflect- just think of that!

The Ascension of Christ

The Gospel of Luke describes the transference of the resurrected body of Jesus from the earth to heaven in Acts 1:9-11.

“And after He had said these things, He was lifted up while they were looking on, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. And as they were gazing intently into the sky while He was going, behold, two men in white clothing stood beside them. They also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven.”

The location of the ascension was east of Jerusalem near Bethany. Forty days after His physical resurrection Jesus “was taken up” and disappeared into a cloud.

God raised Christ from the dead “and made Him sit at His right hand in the heavenly places” (Eph. 1:20). He sits “at the right hand of the Majesty on high” (Heb. 1:3).

The ascension made it possible for Christ to enter into His heavenly “glorification” and sit at the right hand of the Father until His enemies are made His footstool (Ps. 110:1).

The evidence for the glorification of Christ and His superiority over the Old Testament saints is His ascension (Acts 2:33-36). When He arrived into heaven He received “the name that is above every name” (Phil. 2:9-11). Jesus is superior to angels, authorities, principalities, powers and dominions because He is the ascended Lord (Heb. 1:131 Tim. 3:161 Pet. 3:22).

The important message for every believer is that even though Jesus is absent physically from the earth, He is still spiritually present with His church. He can be anywhere and everywhere with His followers all the time.

Jesus told His disciples the Holy Spirit could not come until Jesus died, rose from the dead and ascended to heaven (Jn. 16:7). “If I do not go away, the Helper shall not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.”

Without the ascension Jesus would be in one location on the earth, but not spiritually present everywhere. Because Jesus ascended to heaven He is “wherever two or three are gathered in My name, there I am in your midst” (Matt. 18:20). At His ascension He said, “I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matt. 28:20). Because Jesus is in heaven He is everywhere all the time through His Spirit.

The ascension proves that Jesus really did rise from the dead. Where is the body of Jesus? He is at the right side of His Father seated in power and authority (Eph. 1:20Heb. 1:30). He is alive.

The ascension gives us a steadfast assurance that the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ was accepted by God the Father as the perfect atonement for sinners. Jesus is in the presence of the Father and no other sacrifice for sin ever needs to be made again (Heb. 4:146:209:24). Jesus’ once-for-all sacrifice for sin never has to be repeated (Heb. 1:39:1210:1212:2). He sits on the throne. His atoning work is finished.

The ascension of Jesus gives us assurance that everything is now complete and one day we, too, will reign with Him in His kingdom. Jesus returned to heaven “to prepare a place for you” (Jn. 14:2). The ascension guarantees the promise, “I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also” (v. 3). One day every believer in Christ will ascend to be with Him (2 Cor. 5:1-102 Thess. 4:13-181 Cor. 15:50-58).

The ascension of Jesus makes it possible for us to go boldly into the presence of God in prayer (Heb. 4:14-16). We have an advocate with the Father (1 John 2:1-2) who has experienced everything we experience in this life. He understands and is always ready to help in our time of need (Heb. 2:175:7-10).Selah!

SELAH! Pause – reflect- just think of that!

But God Has Not Allowed Him

But he has cheated me, changing my wages ten times. But God has not allowed him to do me any harm. Genesis 31:7

So he gathered a group of his relatives and set out in hot pursuit. He caught up with Jacob seven days later in the hill country of Gilead. But the previous night God had appeared to Laban the Aramean in a dream and told him, “I’m warning you leave Jacob alone!” Genesis 31:23-24 The Holy Bible ,The New Living Translation

Laban had cheated Jacob but out of this Jacob was blessed with an increase of flocks over Laban.

Jacob noticed Labans family had become so angry with him they were ready to kill him.

Jehovah spoke to Jacob and told him to vamoose.

Labans family took off in hot pursuit. Jehovah warned Laban not to harm Jacob.

What do you think would have happened if Laban had of tried to harm Jacob?

Many times the wicked will lay traps for the righteous but God will bless us with prosperity instead of failure. This will enrage the wicked. But God will advice us to vamoose.

The wicked will come after us with a blood lust.

But God will protect them.

Do you think Jehovah will allow them to harm a child of His? I do not.

That is why I was never afraid of the threats the tyrants in the government made to the unvaccinated ( like me ) when I refused to put that Frankenstein poison ( vaccine ) in my body .

Is it not interesting how the vaccinated are suffering much more than the unvaccinated?

Or when threatened for refusing to to wear the face diaper- face mask ( like me ).

Jehovah spoke with me at the beginning of this scam and told me not to comply.

If He tells me not to do something do you think He will allow some bully to hurt me for obeying Him?

My history says He will not .

Remember follow The Holy Spirits guiding not mans.

The Holy Spirits is for your own good while mans is for his own profit ( and how much profit did the drug companies ( legalized dope pushers ) and government lackies make off of that covid scam? ) .

The evil ones will try to hurt you for refusing to submit to them and choosing to obey God rather than them but God will not allow that to happen.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You ) for blessing me with The Holy Spirit to walk with me and guide me through out the day, every day. Thank you that He warns me of scams that will hurt me. Thank you for His undefeatable protection from the wicked ones that seek to devour the righteous. I praise you in the name of my Heavenly King You have blessed me to serve, Jesus Christ. Amen

That is the Two Way Street Of.

Some men and women think that Jesus’ love is unconditional. That is satanic. “If you love me, obey my commandments. John 14:15 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

And what is Jesus’ commandments?

Christ first, others second self last is the simplest way to put it.

So too it is with our interpersonal relationships.

Do not enter into a relationship that goes down a one way street called gimme, gimme, gimme. That is where one partner is always taking but never giving in return. That is domineering and selfish. That leads into a living hell on your part. Avoid these relationships at all cost.

If you must have a relationship with a narcissist make it a formal one.

Be polite. Be respectful but, keep it at arms distance.

Always pray for The Holy Spirit to guide you away from these relationships.

If you must be involved in one request He guide your behaviour to protect you from these despicable creatures.

As well, ask The Holy Spirit to guide you to those who will respect you and love you. And, they appreciate your love and respect. That is the two way street of friendship.

I would rather have one true friend than a hundred good time friends. Joseph- Anthony a Son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Eli Maelekhi (Psalms 68:24 GOD My King ) for blessing me with Your most special friendship. Thank you for sending The Holy Spirit in the proper manner to conduct myself towards the appreciative and the unappreciative that come into my daily life. I praise You in Your loving name. Amen

He has Written Not for Our

What God has written he has written not for our opinion but for our obedience. John Blanchard

Are You One of the Elect of God?

Jesus said, “All that the Father gives me shall come to Me; and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out” (John 6:37).

The answer to the question, are you one of the elect of God, is answered by another question: Have you believed on Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? If you have responded to His free grace, and have believed on Him alone for salvation, you should know that you are one who was given to Jesus before the foundation of the world.

When Jesus was praying to the Father the night before His sacrificial death on the cross He said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify Thy Son, that the Son may glorify Thee, even as Thou gavest Him authority over all mankind, that to all whom Thou hast given Him, He may give eternal life” (John 17:1-2).

Jesus is referring to the covenant between God the Father and God the Son when God gave to Jesus in salvation that great company for whom He would go to the cross and die.

His death provided the objective and judicial basis whereby the elect would be saved.

The prophet Isaiah spoke of that day in his poem of the Suffering Servant. “But the LORD was pleased to crush Him, putting Him to grief; if He would render Himself as a guilt offering, He will see His offspring, He will prolong His days, and the good pleasure of the LORD will prosper in His hand. As a result of the anguish of His soul, He will see it and be satisfied; by His knowledge the Righteous One, My Servant, will justify the many, as He will bear their iniquities” (Isa. 53:10-11).

Jesus went to the cross the next day knowing that His death would secure the salvation of all whom God had given Him (Jn. 17:2681112). He had the satisfaction that night of knowing that His substitutionary death would secure our salvation.

Jesus, as our Sovereign Savior, has authority over all mankind to give salvation to all whom God has given Him. Thank God, because we were dead in our trespasses and sins and unable to come to Christ unless He first gives eternal life to us (Eph. 2:1-5). If the Holy Spirit is pleading with you, please respond to Him now and receive God’s free gift of eternal life. This is the very evidence you are longing for because of His dealings with you. He raises the spiritually dead and gives life.

It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. He did not have to save anyone. It is His sovereign grace that reaches down to us and draws us to Himself. Will you not respond to His pleading even now? He has the authority and power to break our rebellious will, and quicken our dead spirit so that we will respond to Him in faith.

Jesus Christ gives eternal life to everyone the Father has given Him. He is just in following His eternal plan of redemption whether you and I agree or not. He is the Sovereign King. He shows mercy to whom He will. God is showing mercy to you now. Will you respond to His pleas?

“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” (John 1:12-13).

How do you know you are one of the elect of God? Have you believed on Jesus?

Selah!

SELAH! Pause – reflect- just think of that!
