Matthew_18-11: For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost

O Jesus Thou Lamb Of God
Thou Who Endured Agony
Thou Hast Done Thy Father’s Will
By Thy Forgiveness Of Sins
We Now Seek For Thy Mercy
And From The Guilts Of Our Sins
Take Us To Thy Place Of Joy
And At Last, To Live With Thee.

In The Trouble Of This World
Be Thou Our Helper O Lord
Save Us From All Temptations
And From All Our Enemies
Let Us Know Thy Death’s Value
That Thou Died Upon The Cross
Every Time Let Our Souls Be
Thy Sufferings To Remember.

Let Thy Love Abide In Us
And All Souls Which Have Now Strayed,
Teach Them To Know Thy Sweetness
Thy Life And Resurrection Which
Thy Death Hath Brought For Them
And At Last, That They May Be
Participants Of Thy Grace
And For Ever Reign With Thee.
Amen!

1 John 5. Obedience by Faith. Our victory over the world. The witness about Jesus Christ. Eternal life

Son of God, Son of Man

1 John 5. Obedience by Faith. Our victory over the world. The witness about Jesus Christ. Eternal life

1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him. 2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. 3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. 4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. 5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

6 This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth. 7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. 8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one. 9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son.

10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. 11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: 15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him. 16 If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it. 17 All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.

18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. 19 And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. 20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. 21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

May GOD bless Nigeria, America and Israel and take care of us; May GOD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the LORD lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

1 John 4. Love for God and One another. The True Spirit and the False. God is Love

Detail - Glory of the New Born Christ in prese...

1 John 4. Love for God and One another. The True Spirit and the False. God is Love

1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. 6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. 12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. 13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.

14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. 15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. 16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 19 We love him, because he first loved us. 20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? 21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.

May GOD bless Nigeria, America and Israel and take care of us; May GOD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the LORD lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

1 John 3. Children of God. Love one another. Courage before God. The Command to Love

1 John 3. Children of God. Love one another. Courage before God. The Command to Love

1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. 2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. 5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin. 6 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. 7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. 8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

11 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. 12 Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous. 13 Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.

14 We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death. 15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. 16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. 17 But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? 18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. 19 And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him.

20 For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. 21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. 22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. 24 And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.

May GOD bless Nigeria, America and Israel and take care of us; May GOD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the LORD lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

John 1. The Word was God. Christ The Eternal Word

Stained glass at St John the Baptist's Anglica...

John 1. The Word was God. Christ The Eternal Word

1In the beginning the Word already existed.

The Word was with God,

and the Word was God.

2He existed in the beginning with God.

3God created everything through him,

and nothing was created except through him.

4The Word gave life to everything that was created,*

and his life brought light to everyone.

5The light shines in the darkness,

and the darkness can never extinguish it.*

6God sent a man, John the Baptist,*

7to tell about the light so that everyone might believe because of his testimony.

8John himself was not the light; he was simply a witness to tell about the light.

9The one who is the true light, who gives light to everyone, was coming into the world.

10He came into the very world he created, but the world didn’t recognize him.

11He came to his own people, and even they rejected him.

12But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.

13They are reborn—not with a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan, but a birth that comes from God.

14So the Word became human* and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness.* And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.

15John testified about him when he shouted to the crowds, “This is the one I was talking about when I said, `Someone is coming after me who is far greater than I am, for he existed long before me.'”

16From his abundance we have all received one gracious blessing after another.*

17For the law was given through Moses, but God’s unfailing love and faithfulness came through Jesus Christ.

18No one has ever seen God. But the unique One, who is himself God,* is near to the Father’s heart. He has revealed God to us.

19This was John’s testimony when the Jewish leaders sent priests and Temple assistants* from Jerusalem to ask John, “Who are you?”

20He came right out and said, “I am not the Messiah.”

21″Well then, who are you?” they asked. “Are you Elijah?”

“No,” he replied.

“Are you the Prophet we are expecting?”*

“No.”

22″Then who are you? We need an answer for those who sent us. What do you have to say about yourself?”

23John replied in the words of the prophet Isaiah:

“I am a voice shouting in the wilderness,

`Clear the way for the LORD’s coming!'”*

24Then the Pharisees who had been sent

25asked him, “If you aren’t the Messiah or Elijah or the Prophet, what right do you have to baptize?”

26John told them, “I baptize with* water, but right here in the crowd is someone you do not recognize.

27Though his ministry follows mine, I’m not even worthy to be his slave and untie the straps of his sandal.”

28This encounter took place in Bethany, an area east of the Jordan River, where John was baptizing.

29The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

30He is the one I was talking about when I said, `A man is coming after me who is far greater than I am, for he existed long before me.’

31I did not recognize him as the Messiah, but I have been baptizing with water so that he might be revealed to Israel.”

32Then John testified, “I saw the Holy Spirit descending like a dove from heaven and resting upon him.

33I didn’t know he was the one, but when God sent me to baptize with water, he told me, `The one on whom you see the Spirit descend and rest is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’

34I saw this happen to Jesus, so I testify that he is the Chosen One of God.*”

35The following day John was again standing with two of his disciples.

36As Jesus walked by, John looked at him and declared, “Look! There is the Lamb of God!”

37When John’s two disciples heard this, they followed Jesus.

38Jesus looked around and saw them following. “What do you want?” he asked them.

They replied, “Rabbi” (which means “Teacher”), “where are you staying?”

39″Come and see,” he said. It was about four o’clock in the afternoon when they went with him to the place where he was staying, and they remained with him the rest of the day.

40Andrew, Simon Peter‘s brother, was one of these men who heard what John said and then followed Jesus.

41Andrew went to find his brother, Simon, and told him, “We have found the Messiah” (which means “Christ”*).

42Then Andrew brought Simon to meet Jesus. Looking intently at Simon, Jesus said, “Your name is Simon, son of John—but you will be called Cephas” (which means “Peter”*).

43The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, “Come, follow me.”

44Philip was from Bethsaida, Andrew and Peter’s hometown.

45Philip went to look for Nathanael and told him, “We have found the very person Moses* and the prophets wrote about! His name is Jesus, the son of Joseph from Nazareth.”

46″Nazareth!” exclaimed Nathanael. “Can anything good come from Nazareth?”

“Come and see for yourself,” Philip replied.

47As they approached, Jesus said, “Now here is a genuine son of Israel—a man of complete integrity.”

48″How do you know about me?” Nathanael asked.

Jesus replied, “I could see you under the fig tree before Philip found you.”

49Then Nathanael exclaimed, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God—the King of Israel!”

50Jesus asked him, “Do you believe this just because I told you I had seen you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than this.”

51Then he said, “I tell you the truth, you will all see heaven open and the angels of God going up and down on the Son of Man, the one who is the stairway between heaven and earth.

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

True Christianity; The Revelation of Eternal life!

True Christianity; The Revelation of Eternal life!

 

These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God (1 John 5:13)

Sometimes, we hear people say that Christianity is one of the great religions of the world. As a result, they refer to one who is a Christian as a religious person. But Christianity is not a religion. There’s absolutely nothing religious about Christianity. True Christianity, first of all, is the revelation of eternal life. True Christianity means that an eternal God has taken up His abode in the quarters of a man’s spirit.

True Christianity is not a way of worship, nor is it a way of serving God. It is the pulsating life of God in a human person. It is a living relationship with a living God. When you’re in a relationship with someone, that’s not religion! Someone once said, “I want to become more religious, so I think I should become a Christian!” no. that’s an out-and-out misnomer and a complete misunderstanding of who a Christian is. A Christian is one who is indwelt by divinity.

When you become a Christian, it means eternal life has been imparted into your spirit. It means you’ve embraced the grace, glory and power of God that dispel darkness, sickness, disease, poverty, failure and everything the devil brings. It means you’ve embraced the beauty of divinity. It means you’ve become a partaker of the divine nature – you become a God-carrying vessel. No wonder the Bible says concerning Christians, “Ye are God’s Temple” (2 Corinthians 6:16). No wonder only those who are born again are truly Christians (John 3:3-7).

So, when you say you’re a Christian, it means God has fully tabernacle in you! You’ve become His living headquarters; He looks through your eyes and walks with your legs because you’ve become His vessel. You’ve become the one in whom God dwells; that’s true Christianity: God Almighty taking up His abode in the quarters of your heart, imparting your human spirit with eternal life – His life and nature.

Confession:

 

 

 

 

I’m a carrier of divine life; I have the life and nature of God in me because I’m born again. Therefore, my life is not ordinary. Sickness, disease, infirmities, failure, lack and everything of darkness are not a part of God’s provision for my life, Hallelujah! Amen!

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

You Are Valuable To God

English: Resurrection of Christ

English: Resurrection of Christ (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

You are valuable to God

 

 

 

 

 

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me” (Galatians 2:20)

Before the foundations of the earth, God saw you, knew you, and pre-ordained you unto glory. By faith, He declared you to be a success, and purposed that you’ll prosper in whatsoever you lay your hands to do.

Jesus used the man who brought a field because of the treasure in it to explain what the faith of the Son of God truly is, “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all he hath, and buyeth that field” (Matthew 13:44). He gave up everything, sold everything he had, and bought the whole field. Why? So he could get the treasure out of the field. That field is the world of men, and the treasure in the field is the Church. Living by the faith of the Son of God means that you’re living according to God’s perception of you. You see yourself the way God see you, in Christ.

The Bible says we’re God’s peculiar treasures (Exodus 19:5) and 1 Peter 2:9 says, “Ye are peculiar people…” that means you’re somebody special. Let nobody deceive you or lie to you; you’re peculiar! Men may have called you a weakling, but when God saw you, He said, “Behold My Glory; behold My mighty man of valour!”

You are valuable to God! You are special to Him. I can never be defeated; it’s simply impossible! You can’t talk like this and fail or lose. The Son of God saw a victor in you and you are what He says you are. You cannot but live according to the picture of you that He has shown you. You have to keep living by that faith; the faith of the Son of God, Who saw the treasure in you and bought you with the price of His own blood!

As you study His Word and discover what He sees you to be, say, “Yes LORD, I’m that man (or woman) that you see me to be.” Refuse to be what your neighbours, family members, friends or adversaries see you to be. You’re what God says you are!

Confession:

I am what God says I am; I refuse to be poor or sick. The life of God is in me; it’s in my blood, bones, skin, and every fibre of my being. My success is unlimited and I prosper in everything I lay my hands upon for I am fruitful and productive in every good work. I know who I am! I live every day of my life by the faith of the Son of God Who loved me and gave Himself for me!

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

The God Of This Very Moment

The God Of This Very Moment

John 11:21-27 says:

 

 

“Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. But I know, that even now, whatsoever Thou wilt ask of God, God will give it Thee. Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again. Martha saith unto Him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day. Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die. Believest thou this? She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that Thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.”

Many of us are like Martha. We believe that Jesus is the Christ, but we believe that much of what He says to us is for the future and not for now. We believe things will come to pass someday, but not necessarily today. Jesus wanted her to see Him as the Christ of the now, the Christ that had freed her, the Christ that had resurrection power, and the Christ that was willing to move on her behalf in that very moment.

Today let’s not just think about Jesus as the Christ of tomorrow or the Christ of the catching away when we are taken in the rapture, but let’s realize He is the Christ of our now, right now. Where we are in this moment, He is the Christ, and He wants us to know Him as that today.

He is the Christ of your now!

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

Bound in God’s Will

Stained glass at St John the Baptist's Anglica...

Bound in God‘s Will

 

They laid their hands on Him and took Him.

Mark 14:46, NKJV

The soldiers and officials who had come to the Garden of Gethsemane to arrest Jesus seized Him roughly, punching and manhandling Him as they bound Him. They bound the hands of the Son of God! The hands of the Creator! Hands that had lifted in authority and calmed the storm at sea. Hands that had gathered little children on His knee.

Have you ever felt bound . . .

in a marriage where the love has run out?

in a small home with small children?

in a physical body wracked with pain?

Are you struggling with your bindings? Do you find that the more you fight against them, the more pain you inflict on yourself, so that you are miserable in your confinement? Sometimes binding is in the will of God. Jesus was in the centre of His Father’s will, yet He was bound. He did not resist the tight cords or complain about His confinement. He simply submitted, not to the soldiers, but to His Father’s will. Would you do the same?

Blessings

 

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

Holy Spirit Please Open Our Eyes

“He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you.”

John 16:14, NIV

Without the Holy Spirit to clarify the truth to our minds and confirm Who Jesus is in our hearts, we would “see” Jesus as just . . .

a man,

or a holy man,

or a prophet,

or a symbolic figure!

But the Holy Spirit opens our eyes to see and our minds to know and our hearts to receive that Jesus is more than just a man . . . or a prophet . . . or a teacher . . . or a revolutionary . . . or an icon . . . or a symbol. Jesus is . . .

The Messiah of Israel,

The Son of God,

The Saviour of the world,

God Himself in the flesh!

Sons Of God

Stained glass at St John the Baptist's Anglica...

SONS OF GOD

Now there was a day
when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and satan came
also among them (Job 1:6)

The phrase “Son of God” as used in the scripture above
doesn’t refer to men, but to angels. Satan also came amongst them because he
used to be God’s anointed cherub before he fell (Ezekiel 28:14-15).

However, in the New Testament, the term “Sons of God” is
used differently. It refers to a new race of people; a completely new species
that never existed before. They’re the offspring of the Most High God,
partakers of the divine nature (2Peter 1:4) – Born Again – with the very life
and nature of God. They’re not subject to the ordinary circumstances of life;
they neither burn out nor expire. Like their heavenly Father, they live
forever.

You instantly became a son of God when you received Jesus
into your heart and confessed His Lordship over your life. The Bible says, “As many as received him, to them gave He
power to become the Sons of God, even to them that believe on his name” (John
1:12)

Your outward appearance may still look the same after
confessing the Lordship of Jesus over your life, but know that your human life
has been supplanted by the divine nature. The Bible says “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation: old things
are passed away; behold all things are become new”
(2 Corinthians 5:17).
Thus, the real “Sons of God” are not the angelic beings but those who are in
Christ Jesus. The consciousness of your divine sonship will inspire you to a
glorious life in Christ Jesus.

CONFESSION

I’m a new creation,
an offspring of the Most High and partaker of the divine nature. My life is
divine, having been born of Your living and eternal Word, and brought into the
glorious liberty of the sons of God. Hallelujah! Amen!
