Sunday Two brief comments. Two Blogs.
Good Morning, dear Ones.
Nothing expressed that you do not know but simply the reminder which I awoke reminded of.
The Church did not begin at the resurrection of Jesus Christ. This event was the glorious seal and evidence of His Salvation Plan for humanity.
Imperfect memories and the intellect of the human species could have become distorted or exaggerated through the centuries. The great I AM of history burst through the Upper Room at Pentecost. GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT came to give to human minds Divine understanding of Him and His Word. (God’s Wisdom!)
He came to ‘indwell’ all who would accept Him. HE will stay ETERNALLY.
TONGUES of every nation spoke on the streets of ancient Jerusalem, each in their OWN unique language. This confirmed that the ONE GLORIOUS light was and is for ALL humankind.
Let it be radiant in us. Are we blood-bought children of this Divine God?
Then May our LIGHTS shine in the darkness of 2020 because of HIM and for His sake.
In Jesus’s Name a-men.
Just a further thought. Every day now is a Passover remembrance Day in a New Covenant and every day should be a PRAYER DAY.
ONE BLAZING LIGHT!!
JESUS Christ said.
THE LIGHT OF THE WHOLE WORLD
I live in you. You live in ME.
a-men and a-men.!
The Tomb is EMPTY!
The crucified One has RISEN FROM THE DEAD!
‘ Follow Me!’ he said to His Disciples. ‘ Follow Me’ he has said to all who will listen.
The hopelessness of a long dark Saturday of grief and pain is over.
His Resurrection now seals what the SAVIOUR has achieved by His Sacrifice. All our sins are FORGIVEN . Now we grasp the RADIANT HOPE of eternal life. All the sorrows of this broken 2020 world, like the hopelessness of the Saturday will be rolled away and a Sunday Morning of new HOPE will again dawn.
This for the world on this Easter Morning is the Message.
Hopelessness of Saturday’s griefs will be gone. THE STONE WILL BE ROLLED AWAY.
Hold on to Him in and through it ALL.
The story of the palm frond journey is still not over.
There is more.
The Resurrection is the greatest story in the fulfillment of Biblical Prophesy to this day.
He is ALIVE!
God knew they would need More so the MESSAGE of this Salvation could never die though centuries roll onward. Societies will rise and fall and somehow the story could become blurred by age.
Distortions could enhance or lose IMPACT. But, Jesus said
I am the WAY the T R U T H. and the LIFE.
He also said. ‘I will not leave them like orphans. It is better that I go to My Father in Heaven so I can send the Comforter God the Holy Spirit to beWITH them and IN them for ETERNITY. ‘
God the HOLY SPIRIT – the Spirit of TRUTH indeed did come.
We can with total confidence proclaim this message of HOPE in a HOPELESS WORLD.
CHRIST HAS RISEN FROM THE DEAD.
Happy Easter to all!! Keep looking upwards! The palm Frond journesy is not yet over.
The palm frond journey and royal carpet of leaves leads ultimately to the sacrifice.
The Lamb of God (God’s own Son, part of Divine Trinity) has ‘freely’ given His human Life for a suffering, sin-sick, world.
At the end of all the agony and suffering sorrows. ‘ IT IS FINISHED. ‘ He cried from the Cross.
No more is necessary from frail humanity. He has done it!
Pardon and FORGIVENESS of SINS for all humankind (made in God’s Image).
No one has to DO anything else to be forgiven of their sins. SIMPLY ACCEPT THE SACRIFICE.
Accept this Act of LOVE , Follow Him and because of that LOVE our lives will be totally different.
But we cannot remain at the foot of the Cross. We need to return there all the days of our lives. His redemptive Blood was poured out. We must return to accept ongoing forgiveness because all our lives we remain with a sin nature.
We must not remain there or try to live there or the palm frond journey cannot continue.
A needing world plagued by sickness and death cannot remain at the Cross and neither can we.
STAND UP! LOVE HIM ALONE!
But there is much more!!
SO MUCH MORE.
REDEMPTIVE LOVE does not stay at the foot of the blood-soaked cross.
The remembrance of this life journey taken so long ago can take on special significance in 2020. Let it minister to our hearts, our souls and our spirits. Prayerfully as we journey with the needs of ‘others’ through this extraordinary story which significantly changed our world, may it give us all renewed comfort and ability to STAND unflinchingly for our Saviour.
The palm was a symbol long before the days of Christ. Historically from the ancient past, other religions, other cultures, placed a significance on this humble plant.
The Macedonians believed it was a symbol of Victory, Triumph, Peace and Eternal Life. Even back then it was given a kind of sacred status.
Then one day it is recorded in the Bible, a Jewish man rode down a dusty road and the palm fronds strewn before Him, began the story of a soul-challenging, tragic, inspiring week and the story is never ending because it was His sacrificial death that made the way for all humankind to come to God in relationship with HIM.
THE RESURRECTION and later the coming of God the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, (This Holy God is now alive with us and in us.)
This opened the doorway for all the Promises of the FULFILLMENT of the Palm Frond journey.
VICTORY over SIN, TRIUMPH, PEACE. (even conquering over sickness, mortality and death.)
ETERNAL LIFE is the Hosanna! Promise at the heart of this week.
HOSANNA! HOSANNA! Save us!
HE HAS DONE IT!
While we prayerfully journey through the sorrows, particularly this present year, we look with faith and Hope towards the dawning of the VICTORY MORNING.
Even more this Easter than ever before let us REMEMBER and look with HOPE to the still to come PROMISE that this Saviour will return in the greatest TRIUMPH…..as KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS!
Blessings and Love to all!.
The bird confidently strode across the path intending to walk directly into the deadly traffic.
The man spoke gently and tried to encourage it to return to safety but it was determined………
He stood in front of it ,frantically waving his arms. ‘Don’t go this way. It’s dangerous!’
Finally, after several attempts to get past the man’s determination, the bird flew up into a high tree.
Then, with all his mates in angry chorus they began to shake the leaves with the annoyance of their protesting song.
‘I only wanted to care for you’ Steve shouted back.
Then, he heard the Voice of the Spirt in his heart.
‘I have always only wanted to Care and Love My Children’.
PSALM 85 : 7,8,9,10
This psalm is Israel’s Promise when they accept Jesus Christ as their Messiah, Saviour and Lord.
However, how does this speak to us TODAY 2020 – The Redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb Church?
7. Show us your MERCY O Lord, and grant us, your salvation.
8. I will hear what God the Lord will speak.
He will speak PEACE to His People and His Saints but let them not turn again to ‘folly’. ( Modern terminology ‘foolishness and silly ways’)
9. Surely His Salvation is near them who fear Him, that Glory may dwell in our land.
10. MERCY and TRUTH meet together. RIGHTEOUSNESS and PEACE have kissed each other.
Jesus Christ IS PEACE. He is the King of Righteousness.
The old law did not ‘eternally satisfy’ the demands of this thrice-holy God.
AT THE CROSS, AT THE CROSS THE PERFECT LAMB OF GOD ALONE COULD ATONE.
AT THE CROSS……..ALL WILL MEET….
Mercy, Truth, Righteousness and Peace.
This age is coming – our responsibility even if we are alone in isolation is to PRAY.
God’s Will in these ‘WAKE UP BELOVED!’ 2020 days.
Sebastian is only a small Teddy Bear
Yet, he is a symbol of one of the finest morality oaths ever sworn.
(prirum non nocere) Latin. THE HIPPOCRATIC OATH.
xx First of all I will do no harm.
This oath was for the preservation of all life from conception to the grave. It was originally sworn not for the purpose of ‘playing God’ but for working with God to restore, heal and give humanity HOPE.
No part of that oath included re-designing the human framework or pre-determining life’s pathway without God’s specific influence.
Today I pray for all the wonderful medical people who are caring for victims of this world-wide pandemic coronavirus.
May God’s Peace be with them ALL.
STRENGTH AND COURAGE.
Psm 85 verses 7,8,9 and 10 was my morning reading.
This Psalm was written as a Promise to Israel for when they accept Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord.
How does this speak to us TODAY 2020 – We, the church, the Redeemed by the Blood of THE LAMB?
I will write it out in full in a second blog.
You are LOVED!
Blessings and Divine Presence in Comfort and Grace to you all.
Across the world as the sun comes up on SUNDAY 29TH MARCH 2020.
let us in world-wide unity of purpose
Millions of Christians are at home this Sunday 20th March. Their churches are closed. All the distractions of entertainments, even family events, social alliances are ALL LOCKED DOWN. Wow! A whole world in a state of disbelief. Let’s stop the naval-gazing. How does this effect me? LET PRAY. In world-wide unity. Lets PRAY.
1. REPENTENCE (not just for our own sins but for the whole world, every nation, community and small seemingly forgotten, pocket of humanity.?
No need for fancy crafty prayers but let the Spirit lead and guide.
Like Jeramiah REPENT for the sins of all people who are living outside of God’s Holy prescribed Order of Life according to the WORD.
2. Pray for HIS MERCY in ALL CIRCUMSTANCES.
3. Pray for HIS HEALING, GRACE AND RESTORATION.
If we do this in absolute UNITY across the world in the Name of the ONE who came to save the souls of ALL………. I believe there will be an answer from HEAVEN.
We must then determine to live life day by day in the Fullness He has promised awaiting full RESTORATION AND HEALING.
Keep looking Upwards Beloved! In the Name of Christ A-men.
HE is not LOCKED DOWN. Let ‘s PRAY.
