Here is one part of the parable of the Prodigal son. The parables of our Jesus are so rich and deep, and there are so many beautiful illustrations woven into each one. Here we have the elder son, having just been told that his younger brother, who had fallen into deep sin, was now back at home, and to his disgust, was welcomed back with a great feast and jubilation by his Father. And he was angry, and jealous, and hurt over this. And I have to say... a little bit prideful too... of his own righteousness. 

The part that needs to emphasize this morning is this: The father ( who represents our God the Father) was so kind and merciful here. Some have said that he was just as loving and merciful to this elder son as he was to the other, if not more. Notice, he went out to him, and entreated him. Aren't you glad that our God doesn't leave us to ourselves when we get out of sorts? Our God comes to us, entreats us, reasons with us, loves us, and reassures us, just like the father in this story. 

 The one brother could have said... " leave him alone.'  I can do what I want with my own calf.. I can make a feast if I want to, etc.  " Just lock the door and let him have his own way... he doesn't want to come in... then he will never come in." Have you ever heard a person talk this way... I have heard that kind of talk. And it is very searching too, I mean, as a parent, to think about how I've responded to my children's sulking, or angry moments. Am I like this father, showing a meek spirit, bearing patiently with them, reassuring them of my love for them? It's something to think about isn't it? Our Father loves us so much that he will do almost anything to get us to heaven! Our Father sent Jesus to die for our sins, and will hold his hands out to us until we draw our last breath...He loves us that much! 

Let's be careful how we treat those who are just a bit out of sorts. Let's entreat them with love. Our God does. He does this with every one of us. Our God patiently bears with us, just like our Jesus did with the disciples. 

There are just so very many examples in the Bible of our God " entreating" someone who " had a bad moment,". Yes. And I'm so thankful that our Father loves us this way. 

Maybe we've been out of sorts lately, even angry, or envious, like this elder son. Our God loves us my friend. He is entreating us today. Our Father wants us to know that He loves us with an eternal love, and that He will never leave us nor forsake us. And, like the young man in the parable, Our Father wants us to know that "all that I have is thine."  We are so greatly loved... everything that our God has is ours... we are going to inherit the whole kingdom of our God... to be a joint- heir with our Lord Jesus Christ, if we will just reach out and accept Jesus into our heart and soul! 

Brothers and sisters, let's be patient, like our Father is with those who are out of sorts today. Let's be gentle, like our father is in the parable, like our Heavenly Father has been, and is, with every one of us! And let's try to reassure those who are feeling hurt and left out! If we love them with our Fathers love, we might win them...they just might decide to come on in and out of the night, they might accept our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ into their lives!

 

Storms of Life..

N.gif

Since we are a Child of our Father God, we have no need to  be afraid of the storms of life that are raging all around us....The wars and Rumours of war:( Why should we worry about the things that are about to come upon this Earth. We are in the cradle of our Gods love and we should be able to close our eyes at night and sleep well. The sinner who should be worried seems to be in a state of denial and doesn't seem to be worried about the storm that is raging in this World.

  There is nothing to fear and nothing to worry about when we have our Lord Jesus as our shelter in this time of great storm. Proverbs 18:10, The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe."

Why let fear take us over when our Lord Jesus has given us His perfect love to keep us delivered from all fear? Our Father God declares in His Word that there is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment (I John 4:18).

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.”

 Numbers 21:8-9 reads , "And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived."

     In this scripture we see that God told Moses to make a serpent of brass and lift it up onto a pole and then commanded those who had been bitten by serpents to only look and they would live….. is Bible history ready to repeat itself all over again? The Israelites back in the Old Testament days had grossly sinned against their God; they had lost their way, they were going into total darkness and away from God, just like we have done here in America during the past 70 years.  The Old Testament Israelites allowed their hands to slip out of God’s kind gentle hand. They quickly fell into dis­obedience and sin and because of their gross sinning, our Lord sent fiery serpents among them.
Multitudes of Israelites were bitten. No one in the camp knew how to nurse the dying back to health. Cries of death and moans came from all directions.
 Are we ready for a plague to happen right here in America? Are we ready for our economy to fall right out from underneath us? Is our loving God going to be forced to use the rod of correction upon us to get us to humble ourselves? Our God has promised in the Book of Joel the prophet that He would pour out upon us the latter rain of the Holy Spirit and our God promised the latter rain of the Holy Spirit would be greater than the former rain of The Holy Spirit! Joel 2:25-32.

Joel 2:25-32 reads, " I will give you back what you lost in the years when swarms of locusts ate your crops. It was I who sent this army against you.   Now you will have plenty to eat, and be satisfied. You will praise the LORD your God, who has done wonderful things for you. My people will never be despised again.   Then, Israel, you will know that I am among you and that I, the LORD, am your God and there is no other. My people will never be despised again.  "Afterward I will pour out my Spirit on everyone: your sons and daughters will proclaim my message; your old people will have dreams, and your young people will see visions.   At that time I will pour out my Spirit even on servants, both men and women.  "I will give warnings of that day in the sky and on the earth; there will be bloodshed, fire, and clouds of smoke.  The sun will be darkened, and the moon will turn red as blood before the great and terrible day of the LORD comes.  But all who ask the LORD for help will be saved. As the LORD has said, 'Some in Jerusalem will escape; those whom I choose will survive.' "

The Portals of Hell have opened, there will be great darkness on Earth and also great light, will it be Rapture or Rupture for us? all the dedicated Christians of today are in the Lion's den of this World, and have taken on the same Spirit of obedience as the early Christians in the beginning of the Church Age had taken on. This Church Age will close exactly the way it began in the early church, with the true Christian undergoing persecution, trials and sufferings at the hands of crude people that have come against our Jesus. 
  Even within the Christian churches persecutions have come. Many who claim to be Christian are not lined up with our loving God. Some of the early Christians worst persecutions came from the religious people of that day and so it is today!
  Satan is being so vicious toward the true Christians today as the spirit of Antichrist grows stronger on this Earth. All the demons from ages past have gathered to do battle against the true Christians of our Lord Jesus Christ, because we serve our Master our savior, our Lord Jesus.
  True Christians should look up to heaven, and not dread this hour at all. Our God's power is much stronger than all the multitudes of demons that are coming against the true Church of our Lord Jesus Christ in this last hour. 
  The demons know they can't destroy the true Christians, The Christians with the blood of Jesus will trample the demons underfoot. The demons know the true Christians have been given power over all of them, even over Lucifer himself....the battle belongs to our Lord Jesus Christ!!!
  Jesus chose Paul for a soul winning mission, and Paul suffered so very much for our Lord Jesus Christ. Much of the time after Paul's conversion he lived in the thick of the battle.
  Paul was imprisoned, beaten, persecuted, but what a wonderful message our Lord sent through him to us... the pure Word of the living God! 
  Our Lord will be able to get the very best soul winning work out of us during our hours of suffering, trials and persecutions during this Christian life. We will cling to the Old Rugged Cross of our Lord Jesus with greater determination, greater strength because we will draw from our Lord Jesus Christ, we will draw on those powers we need from our Jesus, day after day!

We are Totally complete and at peace in Christ Jesus, and yet many Christians today, discontented, dissatisfied, and unhappy, come up lacking. 
  Depending on people to make us happy is risky. If people fail us, we become sad lonely and depressed. Nothing should get us down when we’re complete in our Lord Christ Jesus. Our Lord Jesus is our captain! We should never fight battles or go through valleys, heartache and troubles Without our Jesus. We dare not depend on ourselves alone. We should depend upon our Father and upon our Jesus and the guidance of the Holy Spirit.  we will find it impossible to function right without that connection from our God!
Our Lord Jesus during the last supper told His disciples to drink it all (the cup of His Blood). The whole complete Jesus was in that cup of Jesus blood. Jesus didn’t let anyone, anything, any demons or devil get Him down, not even Lucifer him­self. Our Jesus didn’t compromise; Jesus didn’t bow to anything  that was not of God.
   I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Not through self but through Christ Jesus we can do all things. Depend on our Lord Jesus Christ for the things we can’t do; we have our Jesus to help us. The Holy Spirit lives on the inside of us, if we do have the Holy Spirit today, He will point us to Jesus every hour we are awake and will protect us while we sleep. The Holy Spirit is greater than a guardian angel; He’s the third per­son in the Trinity of God! We belong to Christ Jesus and our Christ Jesus belongs to our Father so we belong altogether to the Father! Our Jesus is the one who made it possible for us to become a member of the very family of our God.
   Since our Jesus Christ is our everything, then we have the faith to believe we can receive the answers we need to our prayers. Our Jesus Christ must be our everything in order for us to be able to have all our prayers answered that God wills to answer for us. If we want to have the help in every way daily that our Jesus seeks to give us, then Jesus must be our everything.

I do want to share a few things that have happened to me during my stay at the Cleveland Clinic. After I had the surgery they took me back to my room and the soft mood music coming from the built in speaker in the room had suddenly changed to Christian music!

  The first song I began to hear was a wonderful Christian song that I learned to sing when I was a child!

 I know the Lord will make a way for me .If I live a Holy life, shun the wrong and do the right. I know the Lord will make a way for me

 This song was beautiful and was long and drawn out and I could hear beautiful trumpet music in the song and the trumpets stood out more than the other instruments. Also it seemed to be all male voices in the large group of voices that were singing the song!  

   I kept hearing this song for days, and I mentioned this to the nurses and to everyone who came into the room how beautiful the music was. No one seemed to get excited about the music when I asked them to stop and listen to the song. The music was very faint and I had to listen very carefully to be able to hear the music the first couple of days. Later the music became louder and I kept hearing this first song for two weeks, then two more songs began to mix in with the first song!

 Weekend devotional, 8/29/2014

 God’s exceedingly great and mighty promises are promises a mortal man would never dare make, never dare freely guarantee. We have the seal of blood on our God’s promises, the precious blood of Jesus. Our God will stand by His Word; He will not fail. God the Father backs up all His promises, and the Holy Spirit is here to help us yield to the Word of God, to hide it in our hearts. Thank God for the blood of Jesus that stained the Old Rugged Cross! Hide us in the blood of Jesus until we have love in per­fection. Hide us in the blood of Jesus until we know that everything will be all right. “Hide us in the blood of Jesus until there will be no lonely days or lonely nights, they will all disappear into the sea of God's great love! Hide us in the blood of Jesus until we can see the perfect ways of our Lord Jesus, we can see the footprints of our Jesus in the sands of time, leading us one step at a time along our life journey. Hide us in the blood of Jesus until our ears hear all that the Spirit of our God is saying, so that we won’t miss any­thing that the Holy Spirit is saying.
   The blood of Jesus was sacrificed for all of us, for everyone! To the sinner we are saying, Come! Wash your­selves in the blood of Jesus. Come to Jesus just as you are, you don't have to clean up before you come! No matter your sins, you can be free of them. Hide us in the blood of Jesus till the storms are all over, until our God says, Come up higher my Child. Hide us in the blood of Jesus and we’ll know that we have  our ticket to heaven.  Hide us in the blood of Jesus until none of ourselves rises up, until no egotism is there. Hide us until we can see Jesus as Stephen saw Him. Feel that quickening power; it’s wonderful to have life through the blood of Jesus! When we find the blood of Jesus, we find abundant life. When we find the blood, of Jesus we find the door into heav­en.

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.

If something is wrong with our heart, if we don’t have that soft Jesus heart, then godly things will not come out of our mouth. Jesus had a servant’s heart. Our Jesus was always serving blessings, delivering peo­ple. Our Jesus was always healing someone, or Jesus was on his way to heal someone just about every time we read about him in the scriptures.  (Mark 16:15). Our Jesus had the vision of salvation. Our Jesus died on the Cross to make the born-again experience pos­sible for everyone. (John 3:16). When our God gave Jesus to us, our God gave His whole heart. By a new and living way, which he (Jesus) hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh (Hebrews 10:20).

  And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick (Matthew 14:14). There’s nothing to compare to Jesus soft heart of compassion. Do we have compassion for the unsaved, for the sick and afflicted? If we have the heart of Jesus we do. 

Our heart is filled either with the truth or the false. Jesus said,and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free (John 8:32). I am the truth (John 14:6). Know me and be free, Jesus is saying.

    An overcoming heart: And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimo­ny; and they loved not their lives unto the death (Revelation 12:11). A contaminated heart isn’t going to get into God’s heaven. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God (Matthew 5:8). A praying heart, do you have a heart of prayer? Do you talk to God from your heart? Prayer is not a matter of being on your knees all the time or your body being in a certain position. No, it’s the heart that has to be in the right position.

  Never let the way God moves make you doubt, no matter what happens.bookwithmovingpages.gif

   In Cana, the mother of Jesus helped Jesus per­form the first miracle. She told the servants of the wedding household; whatsoever he (Jesus) saith unto you, do it (John 2:5). That’s the secret, when we do whatever the Lord says. He won’t tell us to do anything big because He doesn’t need us for the big things; He takes care of the big things. He knows the little things are all we can perform. We do something little; He does something big. We do something foolish; He does something wise. Stand still and see the salvation of our Lord! Get rid of the fear closing in on us, about to sti­fle our very breath. Get rid of the fear and behold the hand of our Lord. You say the waters haven’t separated for you yet? But your toes haven’t touched the waters edge yet. Get your toes next to the water and prepare to take your next step.

Sicknesses and diseases have no choice, either, when it comes to the power of God. God can move them out of our body with no effort on His part. Jesus proved it when He spoke and the sick spirits had to go; the blind spirits, the deaf and dumb spirits were cast out.

 The greatest moment we could ever live through is the moment in which we found our Jesus! The next great moment came when we were baptized in the Holy Spirit, when the Holy Spirit came into our life, to move in and set up His abode within us. The Rapture will be yet another great moment for us who are true Children of our God. We will be taken to Heaven without having to die, this will be an incredible time beyond belief. We don't know exactly the time this will happen or exactly the way it will happen but we have the scriptures to teach us!

   Lets move in close to be everything our God wants us to be; we should work on this moment by moment so we can pray and grow in our God. Lets live every minute in our God’s will because the Rapture will happen in a moment of time, and only for us who are ready. (I Corinthians 15:51-52).

     I Corinthians 51-52 reads, "Behold, I speak a mystery to you; we shall not all fall asleep, but we shall all be changed;  in a moment, in a glance of an eye, at the last trumpet. For a trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall all be changed. "

     Jesus didn't bring fear to His disciples; He taught them not to be afraid of what life might bring. Our Jesus taught His disciples: Fear not; let not your heart be troubled; don’t be afraid of anything. Jesus used peace; the disciples saw it used under all kinds of adverse circumstances. Our Jesus told them He was going away; but He would leave His peace, His courage with them, His love and His faith. We have those same things, Our Jesus left His disciples, and we don’t live in fear! With the grace and the favour of our God you have nothing to fear and nothing to worry about. 
    If you’re not free today, say this prayer with me. Please dear God, save my soul. I want to be delivered from this torment; I want to be set free, and I know dear Jesus that your  blood will deliver me. I confess I'm lost in the night. I confess that I’m bound with fear, but I confess my faith in you and I believe the blood of my dear Jesus washes away all of my sins. Come into my heart dear Jesus! Come on in. Jesus came in if you meant that prayer, and you can now say: Hallelujah, My Jesus has come! I have found my Lord! Don’t walk in fear; walk in faith.

     Hebrews 10:35-36 reads " Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise."

To walk with or Lord we must have Faith in Him, complete Faith. Many do not have enough Faith in what our God has said to wait patiently for the fulfilment of the promise. Our God is not a man, our God does not move like a man. He moves like the great God that He is. If we have Faith to do what our God has told us to do, then we should have Faith to know our God will per­form what He said. When we obey our Lord He will not fail us. If our Faith is in our Lord Jesus, then our faith is sound?

 See if you are in His will; see if you really are giving all to follow our Jesus, to be just like Him. We should de-throne everything and everyone else in our heart and put our Lord God almighty on the throne of our hearts along with Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Until we have done all of this, we haven’t forsaken all.

     2 Corinthians 13:5 , "  examine yourselves, whether you are in the faith, prove your own selves. Do you not know your own selves, that Jesus Christ is in you, unless you are reprobates? "

        Some of us have a hard time forgiving others, but we certainly can forgive ourselves. We forgive ourselves for our fusses but we don’t forgive the person who took part in the fuss. By not fussing back, we can avoid a fuss.

   Does your spouse try to slow you down, does He or She say that if you loved them you wouldn’t pray or go to church all of the time; if you loved them you would go to their parties, their get-to­gethers instead of praying. Are they saying you should enjoy the World and you should put them and your family first above your prayer-time....if you bow to their opinions you’re bowing down to them, losing out in your prayer time and your time in the Word of God, (the Bible), and then we will wonder why we don’t have a hunger for the Word of God the way we once had.

IN TIME

oceanssea.gif

The exact time and date our heart will stop beating is recorded! Our Lord knows exactly the length of time we have left, our remaining time is measured; for some it may be just hours; others a day, a week, a month or more. Whatever the time, our death is scheduled, and no man can escape, as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment (Hebrews 9:27).

   Our eyes have been opened to the reality that soon our time could run out. We are allotted such a short time on earth; how can anyone afford to give the devil even one minute of that precious time? Few people live to see seventy years, much less eighty; and many, many today have already lived longer than half their lifetimes.But we have a Rapture to look forward to; that time is very near at hand. Today, many of those living in God’s will shall meet the Rapture in the air.

Malachi 4:6-7  "  Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming

 of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:  And he shall turn the heart of the

 fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come

 and smite the earth with a curse. 

lovecarol.gif   

 All the benefits of God contained in the cup are for the children of God, but in the past, Christians have not been taught how to receive them. Today, however, the Lord is saying: Drink ye all of it ....Mathew 26:26-29.  Use every­thing of me; I gave my whole self for you. I gave you the divine Son of God, and I gave you the Son of man as well, (Jesus). I gave you both man and God; I gave all. I am your everything....To have everything is to have the whole Jesus and all He used when He was here on  Earth; to have everything is to be partakers of Jesus divine blood. We have Jesus blood in our souls, and we are partakers of Jesus body, the Word.

  

  The Psalmist said, Taste and see that the LORD is good (Psalm 34:8), Jesus makes His people sweet.

Our Lord is the Potter we are the Clay, Jesus will mould us into a vessel of Honour, if a man therefore purge himself, he shall be a vessel unto hon­our, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work. Like clay in God's hands, we give our will to Jesus, then His will becomes our will.
    But in a great house there are not only ves­sels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.

The Lord  makes many kinds of wonder­ful vessels. We may be a silver vessel for a special moment, a golden vessel, or we may be a wooden vessel, or clay. In other words, at times we may not feel as though we’re doing anything special for our Lord; but if we are God’s vessel, yielded to Him, He’s the one who is using us.

The Lord in Old Testament days was sorry that He had ever made a Man and Woman because they sinned and sold out to Satan. Then the Lord said, I will wipe man and women from off the face of the earth for I regret I even made them... The Lord tells us in Genesis 6:3 that His Spirit will not always strive with man and after Adam and Eve were driven from the Garden of Eden, God was grieved, but He allowed them in their sinful condition to go forth and multiply upon the face of the earth.  Man came to the place that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually (Genesis 6:5).  All the sins Satan could bring into the heart and mind of man were put into operation.  The Lord grew from a state of being grieved into displeasure and wrath, and when the anger of the Lord does not leave, it brings about severe judgments upon the face of the earth..  The Lord repented of ever having made man and He destroyed all mankind with the exception of Noah, who found grace in the eyes of the Lord, and his family.

Jesus told us that the Kingdom of Heaven is like the five wise virgins and the five foolish virgins. Here we have two classifications of Christians, the wise and the foolish. Which do I prefer to be, a wise Christian with the oil of the Holy Spirit or a foolish Christian without enough oil of the Holy Spirit to light up my lamp? The destiny of a wise Christian is in our own hands; I am the master of my destiny; I have that choice.

And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived (Numbers 21:8,9). Unbelievable? Yes, if you don’t believe in the power of the Old Rugged Cross of Jesus. But if you do believe in that amazing Cross of Jesus, the Cross on a hill called Calvary where Jesus died almost two thousand years ago, then you know this serpent of brass represents our cruci­fied, Saviour, (Jesus).

 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...
