Exodus 19:4 God is recorded as telling Moses. “I carried you on eagles wings’
Many references are to be found in the Word and I have enjoyed researching and reading. The eagle is not defined but all nations on earth have their own species of falcon-type soaring bird to relate with. The beautiful song I heard touched my spirit.
Its words of HOPE Inspire.
I faced in my life a huge mountain.
Problems impossible to climb.
Helpless, I fell on my knees with repentence
Lifted my hands towards Heavenand cried.
He carried me on the wings of an eagle.
He heard my cry and lifted me on the wings of an eagle far into the sky.
The view from above was different and it was peaceful and still.
My mountainwas no longer a mountain but looked now like a tiny hill.
HE CARRIED ME ON THE WINGS OF AN EAGLE
Revelations 12;14 has a beautiful reference to the eagle which is a lovely thought to carry into this day no matter your circumstances.
One of the living creatures IN the THRONE ROOM OF HEAVEN is depicted as resembling a flying eagle crying out as it soars. …….
The ancient path is the WORD – spiritual truth = the first principles in the lives
Of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and lived out and passionately prepared to die for in Peter, John and Paul.
The Ancient path of intrinsic TRUTH
A farmer was working along his back Paddock when he decided to cut back the massive creeping vine covering his fence and spreading everywhere across the grass.
He began to dig away at the vine’s roots. Amazed, his spade encountered a brick. He cleared along the emerging brick pathway and uncovered an ancient forgotten path. One, that long ago had led to a well (no longer standing) of pure rainwater.
Too many clever knowledgeable people writing clever books and too many voices preaching on their revealed new truth. Too much time taken up with the pursuit of fresh manna that the WORD and the ancient path can be hidden and obscured by clinging vines of excess information.
THE TRUTH of the ancient path revealed by Jesus Christ in His Life and Death is simple.
Human beings are sinful. They have a sin nature.
JESUS CHRIST came to save All Sinners. All Human souls.
His sacrificial death. Lots and lots of lambs in generations past
NOW: Behold the LAMB of God Who will take away the sin of the WORLD, said John the Baptist.
His RESURRECTION and coming of God the Holy Spirit ILLUMINATES the ancient path. FOLLOW ME!
HIS LIFE in us as we follow -casting off all the unnecessary. Allowing the Spirit to ever keep changing us and ever focus us on the Cross,
Is God saddened when His Children choose to add to its simplicity or disobey His Handbook Guidelines for living?
Centuries ago, the pain experienced by Paul is expressed in a letter to the Galatian Church. Paul returned for a visit and discovered they had departed from his teaching and were back absorbing surrounding culture and ‘fitting in’ with others..
N.K.J. Gals, 4:19.
My little children for whom I labor in birth again until Christ is formed in you.
Paul likened his pain to the suffering experienced in childbirth.
(Does our GOD see and experience in 2021 the same pain as absorbing of culture in many churches continues to take away from the Message of the Cross for all humankind? }
Romans 8,29 expresses why the resurrection of Christ and then the coming of God the Holy Spirit should radically change ALL ‘Born Again’ Believers. We must know we are born again! Died to self.
For whom He foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the Image of His Son that He might be the first-born among many brethren.
We must be ‘re-born’ into His Spiritual Kingdom …………..follow Christ crucified to self…re-born -resurrection.
THIS EARTH IS NOT OUR HOME.
As re-born children we must accept and KNOW that surrender to God the Holy Spirit allows the Divine Sanctifier to constantly inform and change us………All the days of our lives.
We do not need to DO anything or work on any program, This is GRACE, Divine Surrender to Our Great God of TRINITY..
In our last post we met with what the Shepherd is doing in our present realm, today we reach the final verse of this great Psalm and see the hope for our future.
Notice that “goodness and lovingkindness (mercy in KJV) will follow me.” Throughout Psalm 23 the sheep follow the Shepherd. Goodness and mercy following the sheep is the reward for following the Shepherd. If we want the benefits of being a child of God, we must follow Him each day. Let us elaborate on the goodness and mercy/lovingkindness of God.
In Psalm 31:19 the psalmist tells us that God reserves His goodness for those…
