The Lord is a hiding place. He is a fortress, haven and sanctuary (Psalm 32:7). He provides a retreat, away, from the onslaught of the wicked one.
When the enemy pursues, Christ is that shield of protection. He is that security, strong-hold, the strong-tower that the righteous run into, and are saved (Proverbs 18:10).
Christ is the Hope of His People. He will never leave or forsake them (Psalm 37:25). His promises are not baseless, but based on the very Word of God.
All who put their hope and trust in Christ have an eternal promise: they shall never be put to shame. Amen.

“I will give you Rest”
Weariness and tiredness, the feeling of helplessness and hopelessness, can be a major contributing factor to lack of prayer. Disappointment is one of the things that can hinder you from coming into God’s presence. Heavy weights can stand in the way of Bible Study. The burdens of this world, can be compared to a water hose pipe that is used to put out a raging fire. It seeks to put out the flame burning within.
The person who is continually connected with God will have their mind, body and soul is uplifted. Psalm 100:4 says, we should “enter His gates with thanksgiving and enter His courts with praise.”
Refuge for the weary
Today, the Lord is saying, “Come to me, and I will give you rest.” The “rest” the world offers is built on the works of our own hands. In fact,
it will require you parting with huge sums of money. It’s certainly not FREE.
The “rest” that Christ offers is completely free of charge, you can’t pay for it, it’s not based on merit. Christ has already picked up the bill and He urges you to come boldly, to receive it.
Christ is peace for your weary soul. He is that gift of eternal life, paid for in full, that you may have eternal rest for your soul.

The vengeance of God is not vindictive, neither is it unjust. God sits on His throne in righteousness and truth and judges justly and rightly. He is not unfair, unreasonable, cruel or biased in the way He judges.
“Vengeance is mine.”
“I will repay,” says the Lord. The Lord will repay those who have counted Christ’s work on the Cross as inconsequential and insulted the Spirit of grace. These are people who have both loathed and rejected the Salvation God has offered them.
“The Lord will judge His people”
“For I think that God has displayed us, the apostles, last, as men condemned to death; for we have been made a spectacle to the world, both to angels and to men.”(1 Corinthians 4:9).
The apostles were made a gazing-stock, afflicted and persecuted by the world, even by those who claimed to be part of God’s Children. And so it is today: those who proclaim the gospel suffer Il-treatment and are made a spectacle to the world, even by people who claim to be Believers in Christ.
Though God is the creator of all, He is not the Redeemer of all… the children of Satan who have disguised themselves as the children of God will not get away with it. Their day is coming.
Rejoice and again I say Rejoice, true children of God. The day of the Lord is coming and the Lord will avenge and vindicate those who genuinely belong to Him. Hallelujah!

Rejecting the Truth
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” ( John 3:16).
If you have come into the full revelation of this truth, enjoyed its benefits, and yet reject this truth, the ultimate sacrifice has been made for you, and there is no other sacrifice to be made.
Christ is the Rock in whom those who believe in Him will find find refuge. Through Him, they can freely enter into God’s presence.
The Law of Moses, was not a sufficient sacrifice, yet people where punished for disobeying it. Christ gave His own body an all-sufficient – all in one sacrifice, so that you can come boldly before God’s throne of Grace. Do you fully understand what Christ has done?
Christ will either be a rock of refuge ( Psalm 71:3) or a stumbling block and a rock of offence (1 Peter 2:8). Do not trample upon what the Son of God has done for you today. Do not reject God’s Grace, it is sufficient for you.

STANDING TOGETHER AS ONE BODY
In whatever format Believers in Christ meet, there are many privileges and advantages of the people coming together as one.
The nourishment of the soul is of utmost importance and this takes place when Believers gather together to hear God’s Word. (Mathew 16:26).
God’s power is present wherever Believers meet. Mathew 18:20 says, where two or three are assembled in my name, I am there among them.
Faith is increased, as the members of the Body see and imitate the lives of their Leaders (Hebrews 13:7). Likewise the Leaders in the Body of Christ, become encouraged when they see the fruit of their labour. ( John 15:4-5).
The Body of Christ increases in numbers when the gospel is proclaimed (Acts 2:41-42, 47). It perseveres in its call and mandate.
THE DAY OF THE LORD
No one knows the day of the Lord’s return (Mark 13:32), however the Bible gives us clues (Luke 21:29) and asks us to prepare and be ready like the wise virgins in (Matthew 25:1-13).
Every child of God should, “watch therefore”(Mathew 25:13) because the Lord will appear like a thief in the night (2 Peter 3:10) and catch many unawares and unprepared.
While the enemy goes on a wild rampage distracting the Body of Christ, I pray you will be among those who stay alert, are watchful and are ready. I pray you be among those who will rejoice and be glad at the Lord’s sudden return. Amen.

PERSEVERE IN YOUR FAITH
Brothers and sisters in Christ I’d like to encourage you this hour. Hold fast to the confession of your Faith. Be focused, be steadfast, be strong.
The work Christ has done is complete. He has taken away your sin so that you may walk in everlasting righteousness. Christ has done everything so that you may stand firm in your Faith. Keep your eyes focused on Christ.
He who promised is Faithful.
Do not throw away your trust in God. Do not be enticed to look back through coercion, persecution, tribulation or doubt. His promises never fail, you will never be disappointed, Christ will do as has said.
Let us therefore walk boldly in the righteousness of God. There is a rich reward to come. Be faithful in the profession of your Faith. Be steadfast in your Faith, persevere in your Faith, be strengthened in your Faith, Amen.

Who shall separate you from God’s Love?
As a Believer in Christ, the opposition that comes against you is multi-faceted. There are internal battles, as well as external.
The internal battle of a guilty conscience:
The spirit that condemns is real. It weighs a heavy load on the shoulders, inflicts the mind with worry and fills the heart with fear. Romans 8:1 declares, “there is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ…” Hebrews 10:19 says, we should come boldly before God’s throne of Grace, by the sprinkling of Christ’s blood and the New Covenant. Christ sets the guilty sinner free.
The external battle of a hostile world:
The hatred, hostility and enmity of a world that opposes Believers in Christ is real. All day long they suffer persecutions, just as Christ said in John 16:33, “In this world you will have trouble.” 2 Timothy 3:12 says, “In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.” The Believer is known to go through hardship and 2 Timothy 2:3 says we should bear up like “good Soldiers.”
God’s Love never changes:
What is that internal or external battle that you are struggling with? What will separate you from God’s Love? Will that hardship or persecution change the way you feel about God? Christ has Loved you, despite you, Child of God, before the foundation of this world. His Love for you is eternal. It never fail, it will never change.

🔥HOLD ON TO YOUR FAITH🔥
We are living in times where the gospel of Jesus Christ is under heavy attack. The enemy is on a rampage to lure Christians away from their Faith in Jesus Christ.
Your confession of Faith.
There are no replacements for God. You must have confidence in what God says about Himself:
In Isaiah, God said of himself, “To whom will you compare me or count me equal?” (Isaiah 46:5). The psalmist said of God, “For who in the skies above can compare with the Lord? Who is like the Lord among the heavenly beings? (Psalm 89:6).
🔥Boldness to come into God’s presence.
The Bible makes it critically clear that God is holy (Psalm 99:9, 119:9, Revelation 15:4) There is only one way to come before Him: it is by the Blood of Jesus Christ. “In Him and through Faith in Him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.” (Ephesians 3:12).
By the sprinkling of the blood, you have full assurance, boldness and confidence to enter the Holies of Holies. You no longer stand accused or condemned before God now you have your conscience cleansed.
Christ’s all-sufficient Sacrifice
Christ’s sacrifice is sufficient and there can be no replacements or alternatives for this…many are being deceived in these last days by being convinced that there are alternative ways to enter into God’s presence.
God has no other alternatives intermediaries or replacements to Christ. There is no other way to approach God. Every man made scheme of approaching God is insufficient. Anyone who falls under any of these man-made schemes will be denied entry into God’s presence. There is no Salvation for them.
Nothing else can wipe away your sin or give you entrance into God’s presence. You no longer stand accused before God, only because of Christ’s all-sufficient sacrifice.
If you take your Faith in Christ away, you no longer stand before a throne of “Grace” but a throne of “Judgement.” It is Christ who sits on the throne and it is through Him alone that we have entrance into the Holy of Holies.
