Jesus taught an exclusive message concerning salvation. We see this message clearly taught in the gospels, which should be understandable to all that read or hear it, as seen in John 3:34-36.
      John 3:34-36 reads, “For he whom God has sent says God’s words; and God does not give him the Spirit by measure. The Father has love for the Son and has put all things into his hands. He who has faith in the Son has eternal life; but he who has not faith in the Son will not see life; God’s wrath is resting on him. “
     These words of Jesus are the words of God. He had the Spirit, not by measure, as the prophets did in progressive revelation, but in all its fullness. Everlasting life can only be had by faith in Him, and this way exclusively is obtained. Those people, who do not have faith in 1.5 the Son of God, will not see eternal life or God’s salvation. There present condition is that God’s wrath is resting them. Salvation is by faith in Christ alone. Works, religion, or church membership do not secure or qualify a person a place in Heaven. Being a moral person doesn’t. Neither does being a practicing Jew. The message of salvation is exclusively by faith in Jesus Christ, the final revelation of God in these last days. The message is unpopular. You must be born again to be part of Gods family.
     This exclusive message of salvation is even unpopular in some churches that believe in the false doctrine of universalism. 
     Universalism is most commonly found in liberal denominations and churches. It is the same as the modernistic idea and notions of God which emphasise His love in the extreme, without balancing their viewpoint with any sort of notion of God's justice and holiness. Most often, one may hear an universalist use a phrase such as, "A loving God would never condemn anyone to hell!" By saying this, they forget the Scriptural principles of Divine anger against uncovered sin, Divine justice and wrath against said sin, and Divine holiness, which cannot allow that sin into the presence of God in heaven.
     The exclusive message of salvation is that God gave His Son as a redeeming sacrifice. His blood was shed for our sins, as seen in John 3:16.
     John 3:16 reads, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

The other semeion in Revelation 12:3 reveals more biblical truth in connection with the first  semeion. 
      Revelation 12:3 reads, “Then another sign (semeion) appeared in heaven: and behold, a great red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads were seven diadems.”
     The identity of the Red dragon is not debated because he is clearly identified in Revelation 12:9.
     Revelation 12:9 reads, “And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.”
   The second semeion gives us a great deal of biblical truth about the character of Satan. First, he is described as being a red dragon. He is red because he is a murderer of the martyrs and saints down through the centuries. He is pictured as a dragon because of his viciousness and cruelty. The seven heads speak of great wisdom and the seven diadems speak of his rule and reign on the earth. He is the God of this world and the prince of the power of the air. The ten horns speak of his power over the kingdoms of this world that are under his influence.
     Revelation 12:4a gives us further spiritual biblical truth behind this second (semeion).


 Revelation 12:4a reads, “And his tail swept away a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth.”
     The stars of heaven, angels are often referred to as stars and this would indicate that when Satan rebelled, a third of the angels rebelled with him. That is why there were probably three angels created in the highest order of angelic being, called the archangel. They were of the cherubim class of angels, but three special, and that was Gabriel, Lucifer and Michael. And that they each probably had under their authority a third of the angelic host. And those that were under Lucifer's authority, when he rebelled against God, joined in his rebellion. With his tail he drew a third part of the stars of heaven.

 The Word of God teaches us  to wait. Just because we  are in motion, it doesn't mean  we are in progress with the Lord, have we  mounted up with wings as the eagle and soared into the greatness of  God. Or do we  move in  own will, our own strength.

  Not being able to find people who will work in perfect obedience has been a great hindrance to God, but in these day the bride of Jesus Christ has appeared on the scene from all direc­tions, coming together in one mind, one accord, in perfect love and obedience. The Bride, wearing the love of our Jesus, is alert, looking for the return of Jesus, knowing for a fact Jesus is coming back. Living, walking, thinking with the Spirit of God, the true Bride is obeying and being taught by the Holy Spirit and being moved by Him to do Gods will on earth...

Our Father in heaven... Have you ever set out to explore the world. It seems so big, and you seem so small. You need a hug to make you feel safe. But just think:
God, who made the world, is closer to you than the wind on your face and the air you breathe. He loves you as his child and wants you, and me, to call Him Daddy.
    Dear God, you are a loving father and want us to be your children
     Mat 6:9-13 reads"  Therefore pray in this way: Our Father, who is in Heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts as we also forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil. For Yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen. "

The Word can be preached, talked about, but it still has to be confirmed. If the Word is compromised by false doctrine, it’s not the whole truth, God won’t confirm it. But when the whole divine truth is preached in divine love, faith, grace, and goodness, it’s confirmed with signs, wonders, miracles and healings. If you aren’t seeing signs, wonders, miracles and healings, ask the question Gideon asked: And Gideon said unto him…where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of(Judges 6:13)? Where are the miracles in churches today? A church with the favor of God will have miracles and healings. Without compromise the minister will preach the Word, live it and tell the people that God will do what He has promised.

 The word “brightness” or “radiance” in Greek is the word “apaugasma.”  This word occurs nowhere else in the New Testament. Its proper meaning is “radiated splendour,” or the light which radiates from a luminous body. The abstract concept of this is seen in the rays of the sun which is its “brightness” by which the sun is seen but the sun itself is not seen, it is the rays which radiate from it that are seen.

      "Hebrews 1:3 reads, "Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high."

 God is seen and radiated by the image of the luminous body of Christ (apaugasma.

Christ is the radiance of Gods glory. He also has His own essential light as He is God and it is through Him that the true character of God’s glory is revealed by the Holy Spirit who draws us to God by Christ. It is impossible to see the true character of God apart from Christ. That is why the Lord said that no one knows the father except whom the Son chooses to reveal, as seen from Matthew 11:27. ( audio correction)

Matthew 11:27 reads, " All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him."

God bless you all ... Gary

Luke 15:7-10 reads " I say unto you, that even so there shall be joy in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine righteous persons, who need no repentance.  Or what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a lamp, and sweep the house, and seek diligently until she find it?  And when she hath found it, she calleth together her friends and neighbors, saying, Rejoice with me, for I have found the piece which I had lost.   Even so, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth."

The Grace Of The Father


     

     "A critical spirit can cancel out the law of grace in our lives. We need to show grace to others that we expect to receive ourselves. Knowing we receive His forgiveness day after day.
I John 1:9 reads"  If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to  cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His Word is not in us. 
And Matthew reads "and forgive us our debts as we also forgive our debtors."

Too often I notice a critical and condemning spirit raising up even amongst those closest and dear. Though we can naturally and even feel justified in feeling this way because someone else is not responding or meeting your need or what you expect of them. Nevertheless if we become critical in our spirit we begin to walk in the law of religion and not the law of the spirit. This is such a battle and temptation to fall back into a works program that we need to quickly recognise this and apply the word of righteousness- which is salvation through faith in Christ alone......

The Person Of The Son.❦

  
    When we study the perfect life of Jesus. What He said, His ways, we can see God speaking. When we look at His miracles and His tender compassion, we hear God speaking. When we look at His love and His patience, that is God speaking.  When we look at His crucifixion and resurrection, that is God speaking. When we look at the humility of the Son. Even this is God speaking. When we look at His Holiness, we see God’s Holiness. When we see the righteousness of the Son, we can see the righteousness of God. When we see the purity of the Son, we can see the purity of God.  To see the tenderness of God, the compassion of God, the mercy of God, we see it all in the Son. Everything that God has to say about Himself is manifested and revealed “in Son.” 
     When we study the Son, the knowledge of God is given by the Spirit of God, as He  reveals the attributes of God into our hearts, as seen in 2 Corinthians 4:6.
     2 Corinthians 4:6 reads, “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined into our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”

Progressive Revelation.

     
   
  Progressive revelation, as used by the Author of Hebrews is the progressive process that the Lord used to reveal truth in the Old Testament. The Young’s literal translation of Hebrews 1:1 is the same as the Greek original, in that the word ` In` is at the beginning. This is important as it gives the emphasis that God spoke, it also gives the emphasis on how God spoke. 
Hebrews 1:1 reads, “In many portions, and many ways, God of old having spoken to the fathers by the prophets.”
     There were times when God spoke to His prophets through dreams, times when He used angels, times when He used symbolic actions, times when He used physical phenomena, and times when He used direct communication. 
      The spiritual concepts have become even more sophisticated. They have to do with living and how to worship God, and the inner motivation for worshiping.  
    With these examples we can see how God’s truth progresses from a fiery smoking mountain gradually becoming more and more spiritual, and towards inner motivation for worship and Obedience. Obedience and disobedience also affected the revelation that God gave to the people at particular times. That is why some of the prophets speak about spiritual edification, some about judgement, and some about social responsibility. 
     We can clearly see the Lords progressive revelation in the thirty-nine Old Testament books.

The Reason God Created Man!

     This is a choice that each must make for themselves, when the holy spirit reveals this truth to them, through believers, or the word directly. When we come to Christ and receive his spirit and his life within us, we are born again by the seed of the second Adam.  His life and his character have been divinely invested in us who believe by the spirit of God . That includes his victory over sin, death and Satan. That is the free gift of salvation through faith and grace. Salvation does not come through the law, or theological knowledge, but through Christ who has fulfilled the law for mankind.  When we come and receive his Lordship in our lives, he gives us the free gift of salvation, and we become the children of God, born again of the second Adam. Our task through the spirit is now to know God, and his word ,and subdue  Satan, the original purpose of God creating us.
To sum up, where the first Adam failed, the last Adam did not fail in subduing and overcoming Satan. It is therefore now possible for mankind to achieve his purpose, where the first Adam did not, through faith in the last Adam, Jesus.

The New Covenant ❦


The relationship of the church to the New Covenant is kept quite until the apostle Paul received the revelation from the Lord Jesus Christ that the believing gentiles partake of the spiritual blessings which God promised as part of the New Covenant, as seen in Ephesians 3:2-9.
     Ephesians 3:2-9 reads, “ if it is so that you have heard of the administration of that grace of God which was given me toward you; how that by revelation the mystery was made known to me, as I wrote before in few words, by which, when you read, you can perceive my understanding in the mystery of Christ; which in other generations was not made known to the children of men, as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit; that the Gentiles are fellow heirs, and fellow members of the body, and fellow partakers of his promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel, whereof I was made a servant, according to the gift of that grace of God which was given me according to the working of his power. To me, the very least of all saints, was this grace given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to make all men see what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God, who created all things through Jesus Christ.”
