Acceptable to God

How can a sinful person ever be acceptable to a holy God?

God takes sin seriously; it will be severely punished unless atonement is acceptable according to God’s standard.

Sin is a barrier that separates a person from God. In the Old Testament God dealt with man’s sin by substitution (Lev. 1:44:207:7; Lev. 16).

In the New Testament sin is still a serious problem because everyone has sinned and come short of God’s expectation (Rom. 3:23). Moreover, an eternal hell awaits all who sin (Mk. 9:43Lk. 12:5Rom. 6:23).

It is the will of God that everyone come to repentance and be saved from the wrath of God (Jn. 3:16Rom. 5:82 Pet. 3:9-10). Salvation is accomplished by what God has done in the person and work of Jesus Christ. The apostle Paul wrote, “God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself” (2 Cor. 5:19). This reconciliation was accomplished by the death of Christ. “For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, how much more, since we have been reconciled, will we be saved by his life?” (Rom. 5:10 NET). The death of Christ is absolutely essential to our salvation. Only the death of Christ can save us from our sins and the eternal punishment we deserve.

Jesus gave His life as “a ransom for many” (Mk. 10:45) because “God made the one who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that in him we would become the righteousness of God” (2 Cor. 5:21 NET).

The sacrifice of animals could not “take away sins” (Heb. 10:4). However, the sacrifice of Jesus did what was impossible for animal sacrifices to accomplish. “By his will we have been made holy through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all” (v. 10 NET). “But now he has appeared once for all at the consummation of the ages to put away sin by his sacrifice” (9:26b NET).

By His death Jesus Christ paid the sinner’s debt in full and that death turns away the wrath of God (Rom. 3:25). Because Jesus paid sin’s due penalty God can be both a just and holy God, and at the same time justify the person who has faith in Him (v.26). “For the payoff of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (6:23 NET).

How did Christ redeem us? “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us (because it is written, ‘Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree’)” (Gal. 3:13 NET). It was as a sacrificial substitute “having become a curse for us” that he redeems us. Therefore, we can stamp across our sin debt: “PAID IN FULL!”

Jesus bought us while we were in the slave market of sin, paid the price in full, and set us free to live the Christian life (Eph. 1:71 Cor. 6:20Gal. 5:1). He purchased us with His own blood (Eph. 1:71 Pet. 1:18-19). Because our sin has been dealt with completely we are now free to serve the LORD God. We no longer have to be preoccupied with sin, guilt and punishment. It has been dealt with in the blood of Jesus and we can focus on serving him with a clear conscience.

We have entered into a new covenant with God in Christ (Heb. 9:11-15). Jesus entered “the greater and more perfect tabernacle . . . through His own blood . . . once and for all, having obtained eternal redemption” (Heb. 9:11-12). The effect is it cleanses our conscience from dead works to serve the living God (v. 14).

We are now irrevocably the children of God, heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ (Rom. 8:15-1729-39Gal. 4:6Phil. 1:162 Tim. 1:12Jn. 5:241 Jn. 5:134:135:10).

“All these things are from God who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and who has given us the ministry of reconciliation” (2 Cor. 5:18 NET). We share with others what God has done in reconciling us to Himself.

We have a right relationship with God, the forgiveness of our sins, and eternal life because Christ has taken our place, doing what we could never do for ourselves.

Christ paid our debt in full; our part is simply to accept that great salvation by faith. It is God’s free gift to the believing sinner.Selah!

I Will Call to The

I will call to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and I will be saved from my enemies. Psalms 18:3 The Holy Bible The New Century Version

There has been numerous times when I thought my enemies would be victorious over me and indeed a few times when I thought they were going to kill me.

I was standing up for what was right and or was protecting the innocent.

They were standing there laughing at me. They had pistols and knives.

I had angels.

Suddenly they dropped their weapons and ran screaming away terrorized.

Those that saw it informed me there were huge angels standing behind me and they did not look happy.

This happened to me once in Mexico and once in China.

I thought they were on drugs or were drunk but realize now that Jesus did indeed send angels to protect me.

For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go. Psalm 91:11 The Holy Bible The New Living Version

Then there was the schemers and scammers who plan nasty surprises for me where they are sure I would crash and burn.

The Holy Spirit guided me to behave and speak in a certain manner and victory was mine.

The Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what needs to be said. Luke 12:12 The Holy Bible The New Living Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8 ) for blessing me with being able to send angles to protect me from danger and win my battles for me. Thank you for sending The Holy Spirit to inspire me with the proper words to say and behaviour to conduct myself in to shut the wicked down when they scheme against me. I praise You in the name of my victorious King, Jesus Christ. Amen

Because of Their

By your power you save those who trust you from their enemies. Psalms 17:7 The Holy Bible The New Century Version

Although the wicked may make your life a living Hell or may cause physical, mental and or financial grief they cannot destroy those who walk with Christ.

Indeed because of their abuse they make us much more wealthier. We become wealthier spiritually and mentally which no one can take from us. We become richer in our relationship with Christ.

We all suffer but those of us who suffer for Christ become the richest of all. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

In my life there has been so many times the wicked have sought my destruction. For a while it looks as if they are succeeding. They mock me and Jesus saying where is your Christ to protect you now Christian ( I have heard that one oh so many times ) ?

But then, the hand of Christ strikes back at them.

They face a humiliating painful destruction from which they never recover.

I, on the other hand, am healed and rewarded for being loyal through the tribulation. It does not have to monumental but it is always given.

Of course the greatest reward is hearing Jesus say well done good and faithful servant. I am walking on clouds when that happens and it makes all the suffering pale in comparison.

And, in the end, those who trust Christ always live their final years out in comfort and security. I have seen it so many times.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Almakafi ( the lord our rewarder Hebrews 11:6 ) for the confidence that my suffering for You will be rewarded in this life and a hundred times more in Heaven. I praise You in the name of He who suffered so much for me to have this reward, Jesus Christ. Amen

With Confidence That He Will

I asked the Lord for help, and he answered me. He saved me from all that I feared. Psalm 34:4 The Holy Bible The New Century Version

If you do not ask, you will not receive. It is such a simple recipe for success yet most refuse to use it.

Why, you may ask?

It can be best summed up in one word: pride. Most men and women foolishly believe it would be below them to ask for help.

I have seen so many fools suffer needlessly because of this disease.

And of course being to full of pride they blame everyone but themselves for their hardships which they cause themselves.

Now the wise men and women are humble and call out unto our Heavenly Poppa when trouble comes our way with confidence that He will answer us.

This not only calms our fears but blesses us with courage to step out into the unknown with confidence The Holy Spirit is walking right there beside us.

A fool is his own worse enemy while a wise man and woman depend upon our Heavenly Poppa to guide us through difficult times. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper ) help me to instruct the proud to become humble so that they may benefit for Your loving kindness. I humbly request this in the name of my humble, generous King Jesus Christ. Amen May I suggest we Christians start voting for politicians that have Christian morals like The Christian Heritage Party for the election here in Ontario Canada. Our rights and freedoms depend upon it.

Restore to Me The

Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and make me willing to obey you (Psalm 51:12 The Holy Bible, The New Living Testament ).

We all get in the rut of taking our salvation for granted.

That is why it is so important to read Christian devotionals every day, to watch Christian TV show and movies. When we read and watch others testimony it bring the joy of salvation back into our hearts.

It is very unpleasant when Jehovah makes us be obedient unto Him but we can always be assured He is only doing it for our own good.

There has been many times His hand has been very heavy upon me and it was hated. I thought He was picking on me. When it was over and I realized what He was doing and why, I felt ashamed and promptly apologized. There also was a lot of gratitude and awe .

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Elohe Tishuathi (Psalms 18:46&51:14 God of My Salvation ) for the extreme act of love You surrendered to for my salvation. May I never stop singing songs of joy and praise unto You oh gracious one for such an amazing gift. It is in Your blessed name I praise You joyfully. Amen

Sing a song of Heavenly joy for the amazing gift Christ provided for security into Your Heavenly home. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah
