IN YOUR DARKEST HOURS…

Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ went through trials, tribulations and persecutions on this earth.

In His darkest hours He cried out to God His Light, Salvation and Deliverer.

In your darkest hour, the Lord is your Light. He shows you the way out and leads you home.

The Lord is your Salvation, He has rescued your soul.

The Lord is your Stronghold, the Strong-tower you run into, in times of trouble.

True Spiritual Fruit.

True Spiritual Fruit in Christ

The only Fruit that will remain is the Fruit produced in Christ. There is no true spiritual fruit that can be produced outside of Christ.

God’s Word says we should draw near to Him with a sincere heart. It is the blood of Jesus that is sprinkled on the heart to cleanse it and remove a guilty conscience.

The Holy Spirit has purging power. The Word of God washes us. It is the pure water of the Word that cleanses. The purging power of God produces Faith.

It is only the Fruit produced by the Holy Spirit that produces fruitfulness, holiness and righteousness.

Peace With God

Peace With God

By Faith in Christ, you are justified and have the privilege of being at peace with God. Peace is part of what Christ purchased for you when He gave His life as a Living Sacrifice.

We must remember it was Sin that separated us from God. Once that sin was taken away, the relationship between God and man was restored. Those who have faith in Christ are no longer strangers, but loved sons who have a relationship with the Father.

By Faith, we receive the promises of God, which includes PEACE. The cleansing power of the Blood of the Lamb has purchased “Peace with God” for all who believe in Christ.

💔The broken heart

💔The broken heart?

Who can heal it? Whether broken through past sin, or the hurt and harm caused by someone else: a broken heart can be healed.

The wounded and despondent soul can be made whole again by one who is tender and compassionate.

<<<<<<<<<
ember the Ancient of Days, the most compassionate One, has empathy for the people He created. He is still in the business of healing and binding up wounds today.

In His everlasting love, Christ gave up His body as a living sacrifice for the broken, wounded, maimed, damaged and hurt…Christ died for the most undeserving sinners. It’s through His sacrifice we have a restored relationship with the Father who loves us dearly. He restores the lost and wounded soul, He speaks peace to it. He is the healer of the broken heart.

SHOULDER TO SHOULDER

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.

Can you be separated from Christ’s Love?

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.

Love

Love Your Enemies

The perfect example of One who love(s) His enemies can be found in Christ. It is not a natural thing to Love your enemies, it is an act birthed by the Spirit of God.

As hard as it may seem, Christ wants us to follow in His footsteps,

“To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.” – 1 Peter 2:21

This was a man who “committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth.” What excuse do you and I have?

When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats, instead he entrusted himself to him who judges justly.

Are you able to look on, shake your head and not respond to the wicked acts of your detractors? Indeed, you should pity them, because of the one “ who judges justly.”

The Lord says, we are not to be revengeful, unforgiving or hold grudges. “Vengeance is mine, says the Lord.” – Romans 12:19. Let justice take it rightful place.

We must forgive, but not ignore the facts. When a person is openly wicked, deceitful and unrepentant, they have the ability to hurt you. In wisdom, you do not keep yourself in harms way.

We can make a conscious choice to Love our enemies, not only in Word, but in deed:

🙏speak well of them, be

🙏kind to them and

🙏pray for them,

Amen.

No longer a SLAVE

The Believer in Christ is no longer a slave.

He became the Son of Man

“When the fullness of time came…” at the appointed time, God sent the promised Messiah. Christ would bring a better covenant. A covenant that was not based on tradition and ceremonies. Christ came to set the captives free.

Tradition and culture holds captives. People who remain in the past can never embrace the future. Moses represented the old covenant, but he pointed to the new; a better covenant; Christ, who would be the fulfilment of the Law.

Liberty and Light

Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is Liberty and Freedom (2 Corinthians 3:17). Light and darkness can not exist together, one will certainly overcome the other. Those who The Son has set free are free indeed. They no longer live under the Law, but under Grace. They are free from the shackles of the past.

“Born of a woman under the Law”

Christ subjected himself to such humiliation to free captives. “His humiliation, became our freedom. Hallelujah!

Let the redeemed of the Lord shout for Joy!

You Spiritual Privileges

The spiritual privileges of a relationship with God.

Child of God, there are many privileges as a Believer in Christ. One of them is a close and intimate relationship with Almighty God.

God’s Love has transformative power. It is the understanding of God’s Love that brings the transformation. The man or woman who does not understand God’s Love will find it very hard to love others. This is because they have no understanding of it; they do not know it.

The one who abides in God, abides in God’s Love. There is a depth of assurance and faith that comes from being united with God. The more the Spirit of God indwells in you, the more you will take on God’s nature resulting in you becoming more like Him.

Why not make a decision right now to spend more time with God. Dwell in God’s presence. The more you get to know God, the more you will know of his nature. You will become more like Him.

🔑The key thing here is abiding…simply spending more time with God, will transform your life completely…

Are your feet beautiful?

Peace and Salvation

The deliverance of the Israel from Babylon was similar to the way in which Christ would redeem those who believe in Him from the hands of the oppressor. It was said of the Lord, “the Lord has founded Zion, And the poor of His people shall take refuge in it.” (Isaiah 14:32).

Christ came to earth by the Spirit of the Lord. He was anointed by God, “to preach the gospel to the poor.” He was sent to “heal the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.” (Luke 3:18,19).

The beautiful feet of Jesus

The godly who labour for the Lord have beautiful feet and are to be respected, honoured and highly esteemed. Those who disrespect and dishonour the servants of God have a contrary spirit working through them. “Brothers and sisters, we ask you to accept the godly leaders who work hard among you. They care for you in the Lord. They correct you. Have a lot of respect for them. Love them because of what they do. Live in peace with one another ( 1 Thess.5:12-14).

Feet described as beautiful, are free from, smell, dirt, dust, dry skin, corns and calluses. The Bible describes those who spread the gospel as beautiful because they display Christ’s beauty. They are godly; humble; kind; Compassionate; long suffering; merciful; lovers of peace… but most of all, they are Lovers of the Soul. They love the Good News of Peace and Salvation and share it; preach it; publish it; tell of it; wherever they go!
