MORE PRECIOUS THAN GOLD

psalm-19-8

Grace can not be purchased with silver and gold. The Word of God leads where the natural senses cannot go. It is free from error, it gives what no one else can give: eternal joy. The “statutes of the Lord are right,”every instruction a person needs, is embedded in God’s Word. It is a manual for life.

When the heart is right, it brings freedom. The rejoicing of heart belongs to those who seek wise counsel from the Lord. The Oil of Gladness is free and He gives it liberally to His children without measure.

Scripture gives clear “eyesight,” showing what is near and also what is afar. The purity of The Word corrects poor vision, removing blurriness, bringing precision. The eyes of an enlightened person are not heavy or downcast. To be enlightened means, to show understanding, to be knowledgeable and not follow old-fashioned or false beliefs. In the Spiritual sense it means to become spiritually aware, to be switched on, by the Spirit of God.

No human mind can conceive the things God has prepared for those who love Him. The Spirit of God searches all things and knows all things, even the deep things of God.(1 Cor.2:9,10). True wisdom, discernment and knowledge can only be found in the instructions of The Lord. (Psalm 19:8).

GLOW BLAZE

The Oil of the Spirit
Truly, the Word of God is light which shines brightly in a world overcast with darkness. The power of God’s Word is like a high powered flash light in the dark. Without it we would stumble and fall. It lights up the path way revealing the rocks and bumps along the way.

Each step of the person who clings to God’s Word will be in the right direction. Even if they go in the wrong direction, the Spirit of God will gently lead them to the right one. “Teach me your way, LORD; lead me in a straight path because of my oppressors.” Psalm 27:11. The Spirit of God helps us in a practical way in our everyday decisions.

The Sun of Righteousness is the light of the world. He is the Oil, that feeds the lamp. He is the giver of eternal hope and salvation.The Word of God is an everlasting light, leading people to everlasting life.

“He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake” – Psalm 23:3.

psalm-119-105

Sweet, bitter or Balanced?

1-peter-2-2What food are you eating?

To lead a healthy life, you need healthy food. If you are constantly eating unhealthy food,sooner or later, it will effect you negatively. It is possible for the mind, body and soul to have poor nutrition. An unhealthy diet of sickly sweet and shallow messages will do nothing for your soul.

A healthy mind

Certain kinds of food provide nutrition, not just for the body, but develop the mind. The Apostle Paul uses the metaphor of a baby drinking milk, to provide a more visible description of what he is trying to say. The pure and unadulterated milk a baby drinks plays a vital role in its development. This milk cannot be contaminated. This is the same way a person who is, “born again,” (John 3:7) needs, “pure Spiritual milk,” to grow. The process of regeneration is the new spiritual birth of the believer. This new birth brings new spiritual life.

Is your food questionable?

The essential first step to healthier eating involves looking at what is going into your body. What are you feeding on? Is it that sickly sweet gospel that just makes you want to throw up?! Or is it so bitter and sour, that you can’t bear to hear any more? You are what you eat.

May God work His Grace through you. MAKE SURE as a believer in Christ, you are feeding on a well-balanced, healthy and nutritious diet.

The riches in Christ are inexhaustible.

SAVED by GRACE

weekly post 20

Salvation is God’s work, not ours

If salvation was based on our own efforts, there would be no hope for any one. Who or what can save a person from the consequence of sin? “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).

God is Holy

Who can stand before God? No one is worthy enough to stand before God. He is Holy. The understanding of the Holiness of God totally demolishes any form of self-worth or human efforts as a means through which a person is saved. Grace stands in direct opposition to self – worth and human efforts of every form. How unworthy is the human race? Absolutely unworthy to stand before a God who is absolutely righteous and just.

The tremendous power of Grace

While sin produces death, grace brings life to condemned sinners, who only deserve God’s justice. The purposes of God stand, despite human sin. God chose to impute His righteousness to guilty sinners. He chose a peculiar people (John 13:18;15:19, Romans 11:7 ) to show love favour, love, mercy and compassion. His forgiveness is completely free. There is nothing anyone can do to increase or diminish God’s love.

Anyone who has faith the Lord Jesus Christ today has done so by grace. Salvation is a work of grace, which can never be earned (Rom.11:6). Grace is the eternal and unconditional free favour of God. It is revealed in spiritual and eternal blessings to the guilty and unworthy. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ (Rom.8:1). Christ makes you blameless before God. Walk in your freedom today, Christ has set you free! (Rom.8:1).

REJOICE! REJOICE!! REJOICE!!!

romans12_12Rejoice and again I say, Rejoice.

If you are in union with Christ, you have every reason to rejoice. It is privilege to belong to a Royal Family, to be set apart for His glory and honour.

Rejoice in confident Hope

You can rejoice as part of God’s family because you have Hope. This Hope is not baseless, it is firmly based upon what God has declared in His word. This is your Faith, it is by Grace. The promises of God are unchangeable. Romans 5:2 says, “we boast in the the hope of the glory of God,”(Romans 5:4,5; 8:24,25; 15:4, 13). The Believer can rejoice even in the depth of affliction because of this future hope which is not variable. It is hope that endures stress, doubt and all forms of opposition. It is hope that protects the mind, body and soul. It is the Helmet, the Breast Plate of Righteousness, the Belt of Truth, the Shield of Faith, the Sword of the Spirit (Word of God) and Shoes to spread the Gospel of Peace. This Hope is the full Armour of God worn to protect them from the fiery darts of the enemy.

Be patient in Trouble

These are the last days and this world is a hostile environment. The Children of God will face opposition in a world going in the opposite direction. It is like swimming against the tide, running in the mist of a raging storm. But these are light afflictions, for those who have confident Hope. It is only for a moment, it works out for them a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory (2 Cor.4:17). The trail of your faith is much more precious than silver and gold, though it be tried by fire, may result in the praise, honour and glory of God (1Peter 1:7).

Keep on Praying

The Child of God is to “Pray without Ceasing” (1 Thess.5:17). Pray continually: this is the engine room of the Christian Life. Without prayer there will be no power. The wicked one is always on the prowl, looking for a gap in your Armour. Even when you are tired and prayed out.., just keep on moving forward. Keep Praying!!! The Believer prays to the One who does not sleep or slumber. This is a great privilege, knowing you belong to Christ, who constantly intercedes on your behalf (1John5:14, John 14:13, Matt.7:7).

A changed status…

Yeah, restored and favoured..

gihonpublishingblog: Heavenly Treasures Ministries

39_4A CHANGED STATUS: A new life:

Joseph was loved so much by his earthly father to point where it attracted the jealousy and envy of his brothers. It was partly Jacobs fault because he gave Joseph preferential treatment. Joseph wore a bright multi-coloured coat, while his brothers wore plain ones. He was also well gifted and talented, he could interpret dreams. This created a sea of trouble for Joseph and he ended up in a pit.(Gen.37) Further along the line, his good looks and uncompromising godly nature put him in prison (Gen.39.20).

Joseph eventually came out the pit and prison and was seated in the highest seat of the land of Egypt (Gen. 41:40-46). Apart from Pharaoh, there was no one greater than Joseph in Egypt.

A Throne of Grace

Despite it all, the Lord was with Joseph, and he “found grace”in the sight of the Pharaoh. Anyone in Christ…

A Throne of Grace

Despite it all, the Lord was with Joseph, and he “found grace”in the sight of the Pharaoh. Anyone in Christ has come to Him only by grace. He takes away your old life and gives you a new one. Coming into union with Christ makes you a joint-heir of His riches. . Joseph left his old life and through much tribulation, he came into the new life. Just like Joseph was protected from seduction, our union with Christ protects us from temptation. Those in unity with Christ have a changed status. They are restored, dignified and transformed.

Through Christ’s suffering we have an imputed righteousness. We can come boldly before God’s throne of Grace. Just like all power and authority was given to Joseph by Pharaoh, Christ has given His followers power and authority. Pharaoh put all that he had into the hands of Joseph. ALL THAT CHRIST HAS, HE HAS PLACED INTO YOUR HANDS. YOU HAVE KINGDOM PRIVILEGES.

Christ our High Priest

“Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Heb.4:14).

Jesus Christ is your High Priest. He knows about your weaknesses and shortcomings. He sympathises with you, He has overcome it all on your behalf…

If you believe in Christ, come boldly before His throne of grace today. No other King compares to the King of kings. You have real union and perfect communion with this King. Enter into your rest, enter the Holy of holies this day with boldness. Christ has made a way for you to come boldly and worship the HIM: THE GREAT HIGH PRIEST!
