The Lord Jesus Christ; the Hope for all Humanity…

The Lord Jesus Christ; the Hope for all Humanity...

Lamentations 3:24-25, “The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.”

One of the most important aspects of the Christian Faith is to always keep Our hope securely placed in the will of God! Through Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, as the perfect sin offering on the behalf of all mankind we are granted the Grace and Mercy of God and therefore His will for Our lives. The Bible states in Psalm 84:11, “For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.”

This pertains to Health, Perseverance, peace of mind and overall joy that is in Our Lord Jesus. In the above scripture “The Lord is my portion,” states all that one needs is found in Christ Jesus namely the remission of sin in the Believers life. This is due to the presence of the Holy Spirit at work in Our lives, who works only within Faith in the Cross of Jesus Christ (Romans 8).

By way of the Holy Spirit, the will of God is done in Our lives but we must know that God is in control and that His will for Us is perfect. The same way that Jesus prayed the will of the Father in the Garden of Gethsemane in Mark 14:36, “And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what THOU WILT.” All Christians must trust in God, who is omnipotent and knows all as opposed to Ourselves and others who do not know just what tomorrow will bring. Being submissive to the will of God, is also stated in the Lord’s Prayer found in Matthew 6:9-13, “After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, THY WILL BE DONE in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.”

The Cross of Christ produces the hope that all will be made right in Our lives, no matter just what things may look like to Us. The Lord’s will is being manifested in the life of the Believer. As long as we keep Our Faith planted at the Cross, and Our hope in the will of God. Shalom…

Eli, Eli, Lama Sabachthani…

10 Feb


Matthew 27:46, And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

Eli, Eli Lama Sabachthani was a very prophetic statement uttered by Yeshua/Jesus Christ as He suffered for sins on the Cross. Here Jesus is confirming His death as the final sin offering for all of mankind by quoting a passage from Psalm 22:1-3 which states, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? O my God, I cry in the day time, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent. But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.”

This scripture written by King David many years before prior to the Lord’s arrival here on Earth stated that in His time of need David looked to the Cross of Christ, and the Messiah as refuge from suffering and hardship here on Earth. Christ spoke these same words from the Cross which laid claim to Jesus Christ as the Lamb of God and the only one true salvation for all of mankind for the remission of all sin. Every Disciple of Christ should diligently seek the Lord and look to the Cross as our only means of salvation, the same way King David did when He had too much to bare. No help comes from doing good deeds or the sowing of money into a Ministry can replace the fact that the Cross of Christ is truly ones only help in times of need.

By way of Yeshua/Jesus Christ the Holy Spirit can then intercede on our behalf having our Faith placed correctly in the Cross! Then and only then can we be delivered from this world as stated in Psalm 22: 4-5, “Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them. They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.” Shalom…


Vile Men…

4 Feb


“The wicked prowl on every side, when vileness is exalted among the sons of men,” Psalms 12:8

The Holy Bible speaks at times on the environment of social climates. In the same way that Believer’s allow the Holy Spirit to move through them and shed light onto the world, the unsaved do the same. Those individuals who have a platform (athletes, musicians, politicians) are able to influence a society’s way of thinking for the better or worse. Many people in popular culture inadvertently become enabler’s.

An Enabler is defined as someone who help’s another achieve a desired or undesirable goal. For example a popular celebrity can either be a positive role model by being virtuous and respectable person and setting an example for those looking up to him or her. Or in a more negative effect, a person of notoriety can be a liar, cheater or worse. Many weak minded individuals will use this celebrity’s status as a way to pardon their own sinful desires and way of life. A great popular phrase is, “Whatever our leaders do in moderation, the people will do in excess.”

In this world we live in, a person of great fame and wealth, who is also a very sinful person, can become a enabler of bad intentions. A person’s bad characteristic presents these same abilities to the general public as a way to be successful in life. An example can be a politician who is caught in a sex scandal who can give someone a false belief that cheating on a spouse is okay, after all they did it and they are successful. Or, a reality t.v. star who is ungodly and filled with lust and foul language will give credence to our youth in how to act due to their celebrity. A prime example of this is in the man Victor Crowley pictured above. Crowley was a new age occultist and mystic who lived 1875-1947. Aleister Crowley was very Anti-Christ in his beliefs and believed in doing away with Christianity and issue in a new age of Satanic Humanistic belief’s authoring “The Book of the Law.” The book was written by Crowley while in a trance by a demonic spirit that he named “Aiwass.” The text was said to usher in an age of free thinker’s under the adage “Do as thou wilt, shall be the law of the land.”

Aleister Crowley became popular among many musicians such as the Beatles and Michael Jackson. Influencing them to indoctrinate other’s with his teachings by way of their music, helping to usher in the sexual revolution, homosexuality and drug use of the 60s and 70s. I pray in this time, that we as Believer’s in the Cross of Christ set forth and be a prime example of the Lord in the world today. Enabling those who are undecided to believe in Christ saving power, Shalom…
