Next audiobook!

I can think of no better news to share with you than ‘the Gospel’ of Jesus Christ but as a writer… this comes very close to my heart as well. Little wonder I’d be doing both, by sharing with you the news of my next audiobook. The title of the book is,”To the glory of God we shall see.” This will be my third audiobook. Here I can accomplish both goals at the same time. The image has been altered by the original artist and creator… and very good friend, Shayani Ann Turko. You can reach out to her on Twitter… @ShayaniATurko or look her up on her Blog… http://dreamsinbetweenspaces.blogspot.ca

A very big ‘Thanks’ Shayani… and now to set it up with the Narrator I’ve had on stand by for a couple of months now. Maranatha!

Your Brother in Christ Jesus,

“Life is found in living and appreciating its splendor”©

Tags

There are few things in this world worth savoring

but the profound beauty of nature reigns supreme,

and despite the severity of the climate or location it’s

found, where life begets life… fragility of the extreme,

be it to wet where it’s dry or to dry where it is wet… the

ecosystem alters the bounty of flora we’d hope to see;

therein the minutiae affected without a maximalist trait

of anyone human, life begs us to look on and let it be…

where we lose sight of nature is thinking we can change

man himself, to take a position against God and eschew

the details of nature which are attributed to the divine

but to step back from the micro engages a macro view.

If nature came about on its own, simply molecules colliding until something came together, then the butterfly would not exist- for from a butterfly we see two distinctly different manifestations (or stages) to its existence. This one simple example tests the very notions of naturalists around the world… would it be found in less of a complex set of structures it might be easier to explain the dramatic differences found. What is seen with the butterfly… is metamorphosis, the process of transformation includes a change in form or nature- resulting in two completely different natures being observable. If anything was subject to such change, as with the nature of man himself, it could be due to supernatural influence.

Psalm 19 speaks of God’s truth… and we would be better off to know this.

Jude 1:1-2 1 Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and a brother of James, To those who have been called, who are loved in God the Father and kept for Jesus Christ: 2 Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance.

[Below comes by way of John Gill’s Exposition of the Bible, with Job 37:1-13 being looked at and found here, and all Job 37, by John Gill’s, can be found here.]

and the sound [that] goeth out of his mouth:
as the former clause may have respect to loud thunder, a more violent crack or clap of it; so this may intend some lesser whispers and murmurs of it at a distance; or a rumbling noise in the clouds before they burst; since the word is sometimes used for private meditation. Now the voice of God, whether in his works of nature, or in the dispensations of his providence, or in his word; whether in the thunder of the law, or in the still sound of the Gospel, is to be attentively hearkened to; because it is the voice of God, the voice of the God of glory, majestic and powerful, and is attended with various effects; of which see (Psalms 29:3-9).

[This one is found here.]

and is moved out of his place;
was ready to leap out of his body. Such an effect had this phenomenon of nature on him; as is sometimes the case with men at a sudden fright or unusual sound, and particularly thunder.

[Below is found here.]

The word for “stay” signifies “to supplant”, or “act deceitfully”; the name of Jacob is derived from this root, because he supplanted his brother, (Genesis 25:26); and so it may be rendered here,”he will not supplant”, or “deceive them, when his voice is heard”: that is, either he does not subvert them, the heavens and earth, but preserves them; though he makes them to tremble with his voice of thunder: or he does not act the part of a secret, subtle, and deceitful enemy, when he thunders; but shows himself openly as a King, executing his decrees with authority: or rather he deceives none with his voice; none can mistake it; all know it to be the voice of thunder when it is heard: so Christ’s sheep know his voice in the Gospel, and cannot be deceived; the voice of a stranger they will not follow, (John 10:4John 10:5John 10:27).

“When conflict arises… chose God over man”©

,

When one’s ways are in conflict with another…

find you a humble love to abide in your heart,

there can be nothing greater than to listen to

what one might say, a humbling place to start,

Love is patient… love is kind, and to do this is

better than simply saying the words of our faith,

even in the face of intense hatred toward God

Himself… when love is not known by one’s kith,

strikingly… even contrast and contradiction can

come by means of one’s view to said prophecy,

this is a time and place where no one can make

an absurd claim they have a right to any privacy,

so let the world know there is but one truth… but

one denial… and but one deceiver to God’s truth,

for it is better to know God approves of what you’d

do than be found against Him- loss of your worth.

There is conflict and the conflict comes in the form of two differing viewpoints to prophecy itself; furthermore, the two differing claims which have been made are antithetical to one another and form a paradox. Theantinomyof such an occurrence can be said to be due tothe information paradox,’ something as simply coming from two different groups (within the monotheistic umbrella of origins: Judaic, christian and Muslim) but are believed (by both parties) to be true and exclusive. Since logic says only one will be found true (if they appear to be opposed to one another) and what remains will be falsehence the paradox. Furthermore, it must be couched intruthand have the balance of veracity owed to it from past prophecy (the historical and proven accuracy) and source of the prophecy to be known [not hearsay]; wherein the gauge is applied (or applicable) to all humanityIsrael and the nations.

[Below comes from ‘John Gill’s Exposition of the Bible,’ and found here]

Isaiah 44:8

Fear ye not, neither be afraid
Of the accomplishment of prophecies and promises, and of professing the true God, and of adhering to Jesus Christ, the only Redeemer and Savior; or of the gods of the Heathens, and of persecuting tyrants, and what they can do against you, and in favor of their idolatrous religion: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? is there a God besides me? that is a true God; for there were many fictitious and false deities, but none omniscient and omnipotent, that could foretell future events, and accomplish them as he did; there is no god but the one God, Father, Son, and Spirit; for this an appeal is made to the witnesses: yea, there is no God, I know not any; or, there is “no rock”; or, is there any? a word used for God, (Deuteronomy 32:4Deuteronomy 32:18Deuteronomy 32:30Deuteronomy 32:31), there is no rock to build upon for salvation, no rock for shelter and safety, but Christ the rock of ages, on which the church is built, and the gates of hell cannot prevail against it, (Matthew 16:18), and if God, who is omniscient, knows none else, there can be no other.

Revelation 22:6-7 6 And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done. 7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.

Colossians 3:1-8 is a good set of scripture to take to heart. As to those opposed to following Jesus Christ… for them is found to become ensnared by their own belief, thinking they are right, and all issues settled… but they will have set themselves up for ‘the Day of the Lord.’

Revelation 16:12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East.

Revelation 16:16 Then they gathered the kings together to the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.

Zephaniah 1:7 (KJV)  Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord GOD: for the day of the LORD is at hand: for the LORD hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath bid his guests.

Joshua 11:20 KJV

http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/joshua/11-20.html

20 For it was of the LORD to harden their hearts, that they should come against Israel in battle, that he might destroy them utterly, and that they might have no favour, but that he might destroy them, as the LORD commanded Moses.

Isaiah 44:18 KJV

http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/isaiah/44-18.html

18 They have not known nor understood: for he hath shut their eyes, that they cannot see; and their hearts, that they cannot understand.

2 Chronicles 6:14 KJV

http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/2-chronicles/6-14.html

14 And said, O LORD God of Israel, there is no God like thee in the heaven, nor in the earth; which keepest covenant, and shewest mercy unto thy servants, that walk before thee with all their hearts:

Micah 3:5 KJV

http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/micah/3-5.html

5 Thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him.

John 3:19 KJV

http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/john/3-19.html

19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

Proverbs 30:5 KJV

http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/proverbs/30-5.html

5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

Here is an article posted back in 2012, Dec. 5th, on the blessings and curses of God [I do hope you’ll find it informative] and one on the Bride (the church), this one posted Sept. 10th, 2015, concerning ‘the Rapture.’ This article is also posted here.

“The coming tidal wave of ‘Black flags’ we’ll see”©

Tags

,


There is no creation seen by destruction,
no peace comes from beheading dissent…
no signs of merciful belief or of love at all
and the followers of this God do so resent
the mere thought of being wrong is wrong,
when the sun descends… man’s own deceit
is not sooner considered a deception but
simply a tool, not pride or even left conceit,
so where then is the faith in the God of love…
if not seen on a flag named for ‘punishment,’
the rough treatment inflicted as retribution
for failing to believe the same is judgement?

Let there be no doubt… people are killing in the confidence and trust it is for the ‘right reason.’ When love is not empowered… and jealousy for supremacy is the goal (the end game… eschatology) and declared to be sound [by men] then love is not the expression sought after. Should my own faith come in to question (then) is when I’ll stand up and forfeit what we have all been given (all humanity)- life itself. When hate for life is palmed off as worthy of our choice to follow through on its precepts… respect for life will become null and void. When no arbiter of justice resides among mankind itself… injustice will proceed to fill the vacuum without remorse.

Please let it be understood, a good Muslim understands Muhammad commanded,”No change can there be in the words of Allah,” and,”Allah cannot alter (or abrogate) his words”; which comes from Suras 6:34, 6:115, 10:64 and 50:28, 29. Also, in North Eastern Iran today (from the region named Khorasan) … the ‘Blag flag‘ is also seen and understood (from out of the activities directly attributed to Muhammad himself) as a historic proclamation of ‘punishment’ coming- this is the goal and has been all along. What follows (found in this link is but a snap-shot into this viewpoint) is from end times prophecy (Eschatology) of Islam.

[a quote below from a source (what looks to me like ISIS propaganda) undisclosed]

“We are living in the time of global Jihad, when the war now is not about countries fighting each other for land, but for dominance of ideas (our battle is to make the Truth superior over falsehood).”

Surah 5:44 “Surely We revealed the Taurat (Torah/Bible Old Testament) in which was guidance and light”, with it the prophets who submitted themselves…

Surah 29:46 “And dispute ye not with the People of the Book, but say,”We believe in the revelation which has come down to us and in that which came down to you; Our Allah and your Allah is one;

[It is due to the contradiction of understanding coming from this statement (above) that makes the declaration a ‘lynchpin’ of either truth or not! To intimate (suggest/imply/declare) being led to go against Israel and the Hebrew God that they are the same God… one can see clearly this is not the case. Even Abraham believed God (the Hebrew God) and was counted as being righteous.]

Genesis 1:26 (KJV) And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

[Below is found at this link and under ‘Commentary Critical’ near the bottom of the page]
In our image, after our likeness–This was a peculiar distinction, the value attached to which appears in the words being twice mentioned. And in what did this image of God consist? Not in the erect form or features of man, not in his intellect, for the devil and his angels are, in this respect, far superior; not in his immortality, for he has not, like God, a past as well as a future eternity of being; but in the moral dispositions of his soul, commonly called original righteousness (Ecclesiastes 7:29). As the new creation is only a restoration of this image, the history of the one throws light on the other; and we are informed that it is renewed after the image of God in knowledge, righteousness, and true holiness (Colossians 3:10, Ephesians 4:24).

Galatians 3:28 KJV
http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/galatians/3-28.html
28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

2 Chronicles 14:11 KJV
http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/2-chronicles/14-11.html
11 And Asa cried unto the LORD his God, and said, LORD, it is nothing with thee to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power: help us, O LORD our God; for we rest on thee, and in thy name we go against this multitude. O LORD, thou art our God; let not man prevail against thee.

Image from here and another posting to read on ‘Monotheism’ is found here, for a clear view to the actual differences between what many might consider ‘one God.’ A difference between views: Christian- what I believe I’ll die for… and Muslim- what I believe you’ll die for! Both of these actions (today) are called martyrdom [a display of feigned or exaggerated suffering to obtain sympathy or admiration… a current definition].

“Divine mercy is an ocean… ever full and flowing”©

Tags

,

God never asks more of us than He gives,

His gifts are eternal to those found willing…

precious are the few who do His Father’s will,

to forsake the sins of pleasure for His bidding,

the grace of God is infinitely greater and may

the salvation of one soul spare us our pain,

keep your mind focused despite its surety to

feel… this is God’s service, labor not in vain

or forget whose name you labor for, the Lord…

it is for the Lord, there is no hiding one’s sin,

our part in this abundant mercy, through the

blood of Christ, weary not or the lost don’t win…

there are none to be found without Him, were

we not in this same condition of merit as man

or woman, God unknown to us but His grace

knew us before we loved Him, by eternal plan

this Divine mercy… this flooding of one’s soul

with His influence, to dry bones springs of life,

our lives restored, to justify and sanctify our

spirits… look beyond man’s merit to his strife.

James 5:20 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

When the message is told, the ‘Good news’ we call the Gospel of Jesus Christ… the Great Commission, we shall know conviction of a heart to come by means of the Holy Spirit (or Holy Ghost). Since one times one times one equals one… this is how we are to see God Himself (the triune God… God in three parts and all the same). Yes all three parts are uniquely different but in unity of purpose and divine by nature there is but one God we follow… the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Please look at these two entries for ‘Trinity 1‘ and ‘Trinity 2‘ (both coming from the ‘Quick Reference Dictionary’ and quite extensive in scope).

Of many Messianic prophecies, one tells of ‘the Bride (the church… the believers called the body of Christ)’ and it comes from OT (Old Testament)- found in Psalms 45.

Great Commission, the

Mandate to “make disciples of all nations” given by Christ to his disciples following his death and resurrection ( Matt 28:16-20 ; Mark 16:15-18 ; Luke 24:46-49 ; John 20:21-23 ; Acts 1:8 ). Because Christ has been given all authority in heaven and on earth ( Matt 28:19 ), the Great Commission is to be taken with the utmost seriousness by all of his disciples, “to the very end of the age” ( Matt 28:20 ).

The Good News is to be shared with all peoples, for all are sinners, Jews and Gentile alike, and in need of deliverance from sin ( Rom 3 ). All peoples, by faith, can receive God’s provision and are baptized into Christ. In Christ, all distinctions between Jew and Gentile disappear ( Rom 10:12-13 ; Gal 3:28 ).

Without clear discovery of our guilt and danger, we never shall understand the value of Christ’s salvation; but when brought to know ourselves aright, we begin to see the value of the Redeemer. We should have fuller views of the Redeemer, and more lively affections to him, if we more prayed for, and depended on the Holy Spirit.

Matthew Henry (from Commentary on John 16)

____________________

A very Dear friend, named Eva (Eva D. R. Force and at LinkedIn), left me this comment…

King James Version (KJV)

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anoitest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

____________________

and for whatever reason… this is my response (below); which I’m unable to add in the format I’ve been provided here. If I had to guess… the font has been changed to one (unadaptable/incompatible) not usable. By the way, the scripture which Eva referenced is Psalm 23:5.

Proverbs 3:3 (KJV)

3 Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:

1 Corinthians 10:21 (KJV)

21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.

There are to be two tables in the end times, one will be the marriage supper of the Lamb (Luke 14:8 and Revelation 19:9) and the other… the great supper of God (Zephaniah 1:7)- Christ’s victory over His enemies. Both will be set by God Himself, Jesus. We all have been given a choice… the choice to go to the feast of our own choosing, willingly!

_____________________

To which I must add…

[For Luke 14, this below is a Matthew Henry breakdown and how we can look at this passage]

Christ heals a man on the sabbath. (1-6) He teaches humility. (7-14) Parable of the great supper. (15-24) The necessity of consideration and self-denial. (25-35)

section 1… It requires care to understand the proper connexion between piety and charity in observing the sabbath, and the distinction between works of real necessity and habits of self-indulgence. Wisdom from above, teaches patient perseverance in well-doing.

section 2… But our Lord did not mean that a proud and unbelieving liberality should be rewarded, but that his precept of doing good to the poor and afflicted should be observed from love to him.

section 3… In this parable observe the free grace and mercy of God shining in the gospel of Christ, which will be food and a feast for the soul of a man that knows its own wants and miseries.This reproves the Jewish nation for their neglect of the offers of Christ’s grace. The want of gratitude in those who slight gospel offers, and the contempt put upon the God of heaven thereby, justly provoke him.

section 4… In some way a disciple of Christ will be put to the trial. Though the disciples of Christ are not all crucified, yet they all bear their cross, and must bear it in the way of duty. Sit down and count the cost; consider it will cost the mortifying of sin, even the most beloved lusts. The proudest and most daring sinner cannot stand against God, for who knows the power of his anger? May we seek to be disciples indeed, and be careful not to grow slack in our profession, or afraid of the cross; that we may be the good salt of the earth, to season those around us with the savor of Christ.

yet there is room–implying that these classes had embraced the invitation ( Matthew 21:32 , 12:37 , last clause; John 7:48John 7:49 ); and beautifully expressing the longing that should fill the hearts of ministers to see their Master’s table filled.

If we continue to refuse God’s offer of grace… which do you believe, which table will be prepared for you, spoken of in Proverbs 1:24-33?

“Three days from ‘good Friday’ to behold God’s miracle”©

, , , ,

From this…

Since this is ‘good Friday’ and salvation is God’s goal for mankind, I’m taking a different tack, a change of course, for this submission. Three is a holy number: three days buried, a triune God, High Priest- Paschal lamb-The Risen Christ (Messiah), body-mind and spirit… so I’m offering the search pages of my ‘Christian Blog’ for,”God’s equal.” Let mankind say what they will about my God… but there is no other to stand against Him. This link amounts to ‘three pages’ and plenty of information… so let any come that might search for Him- in the hopes He will be found. Please look to this link¹ and see what I mean.

I stand today (only) because He has graced me with His love… and I’ll stand tomorrow (only) due to His love, a high school drop-out with a desire to find God. He found me first… loved me before I loved Him- and I hope you’ll come to the same conclusion. This is my prayer this Passover (Easter to some… and no judgement for it). (D.V.)²

Your Brother in Christ Jesus,

Russ

1 John 4:19 KJV

http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/1-john/4-19.html

19 We love him, because he first loved us.

[If you click on the compare (here also) button (below the scripture… and after you click to the page link given with the passage), you’ll find near the bottom under ‘Commentary Critical’ the information below.]

Jesus Christ is come in the flesh–a twofold truth confessed, that Jesus is the Christ, and that He is come (the Greek perfect tense implies not a mere past historical fact, as the aorist would, but also the present continuance of the fact and its blessed effects) in the flesh (“clothed with flesh”: not with a mere seeming humanity, as the Docetæ afterwards taught: He therefore was, previously, something far above flesh). His flesh implies His death for us, for only by assuming flesh could He die (for as God He could not), Hebrews 2:9Hebrews 2:10Hebrews 2:14Hebrews 2:16 ; and His death implies His LOVE for us ( John 15:13 ). To deny the reality of His flesh is to deny His love, and so cast away the root which produces all true love on the believer’s part ( 1 John 4:9-111 John 4:19 ). Rome, by the doctrine of the immaculate conception of the Virgin Mary, denies Christ’s proper humanity.

Resumption of the main theme ( 1 John 2:29 ). Love, the sum of righteousness, is the test of our being born of God. Love flows from a sense of God’s love to us: compare 1 John 4:9 with 1 John 3:16 , which 1 John 4:9 resumes; and 1 John 4:13 with 1 John 3:24 , which similarly 1 John 4:13 resumes. At the same time, 1 John 4:7-21 is connected with the immediately preceding context, 1 John 4:2 setting forth Christ’s incarnation, the great proof of God’s love ( 1 John 4:10 ).
Beloved–an address appropriate to his subject, “love.”
love–All love is from God as its fountain: especially that embodiment of love, God manifest in the flesh. The Father also is love ( 1 John 4:8 ). The Holy Ghost sheds love as its first fruit abroad in the heart.
knoweth God–spiritually, experimentally, and habitually.

spirit of truth–the Spirit which comes from God and teaches truth.
spirit of error–the spirit which comes from Satan and seduces into error.

God’s love to us is the grand motive for our love to one another ( 1 John 3:16 ).

We are in, not of, this world.

The resurrection of Jesus, and the eyewitnesses to the actual event in human history, proves beyond the lingering clouded minds the truth of His very claims. Jesus first announced,”Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”

Luke 4:21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

[Find the comparison here for the above scripture. What is listed below is found by looking to ‘Commentary Critical’ under the comparative listing.]

JESUS ENTERING ON HIS PUBLIC MINISTRY

To have fixed on any passage announcing His sufferings (as Isaiah 53:1-12 ), would have been unsuitable at that early stage of His ministry. But He selects a passage announcing the sublime object of His whole mission, its divine character, and His special endowments for it; expressed in the first person, and so singularly adapted to the first opening of the mouth in His prophetic capacity, that it seems as if made expressly for this occasion. It is from the well-known section of Isaiah’s prophecies whose burden is that mysterious “SERVANT OF THE LORD,” despised of man, abhorred of the nation, but before whom kings on seeing Him are to arise, and princes to worship; in visage more marred than any man and His form than the sons of men, yet sprinkling many nations; laboring seemingly in vain, and spending His strength for naught and in vain, yet Jehovah’s Servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob and be His Salvation to the ends of the earth ( Isaiah 49:1-26 , &c.). The quotation is chiefly from the Septuagint version, used in the synagogues.

“Being lost… lost forever”©

Tags

, ,

To save mankind God had to become human…

able to die for us, and this paid in full the cost,

How important are you to your God? This is

the living God, to prevent you from being lost…

lost forever if by choice we’d reject or even deny

His Son, Jesus, of your ‘free will’ God did impart,

and in choosing not to believe God’s love is

real (for you) then we turn our backs, chagrin,

hell was created for the demons (ex-angels)

and we would join them in our rejection by sin,

this is no small error, Jesus died to spare you

from what (surely) is an eternal event, not mortal,

the choice we make here is one to affect our

future… should we step beyond this portal

toward certain damnation, this life is not with

the importance most would assume it or take,

God became sin and this punishment is for us

but without Him or His love… nothing to fake.

Matthew 27:46 KJV

http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/matthew/27-46.html

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?

Can you imagine… the Son of God being denied His own existence by His own Father? This did happen and the reason is equally unfathomable by mankind (when we would take the time to ponder on the reason). To understand Jesus took upon His self all the sins of mankind and became that which God will not look at- sin itself. Why did Jesus do this… to spare us from having to be seen for what we are (without Him)- found to be in ‘a sinful state’ and unworthy to be looked at as having any worth at all. If you know Jesus as your Savior, and believe in Him… and confess Him as your God– you are seen for the righteousness God has gifted you by His grace. To be given that which we could never earn (to have our sin debt paid) by a God who would take on human form to die a human death (a blood debt [also from Greek… Opheilema, and click ‘the little speaker to hear it pronounced] required to be fulfilled) by a sinless willing sacrifice for us all. For those who knew Him not He died… that we might be redeemed [man’s redemption] to the living God- the God of love itself. This was what Jesus accomplished but you’d take no part in it if you don’t believe and follow Him. Accept His gift of eternal life and ask for His forgiveness or face your eternity without Him- not just away from Him but forever and without hope… all based on a choice you refused to make in your time of mercy and grace.

Redemption; Atonement (first by God for man and secondly by man to God), see below… [this comes from section 19, under Commentary Critical… at the bottom of the page on this (compare) this scripture]

The atonement (at-one-ment), or reconciliation, is the removal of the bar to peace and acceptance with a holy God, which His righteousness interposed against our sin. The first step towards restoring peace between us and God was on God’s side ( John 3:16 ). The change therefore now to be effected must be on the part of offending man, God the offended One being already reconciled. It is man, not God, who now needs to be reconciled, and to lay aside his enmity against God ( Romans 5:10Romans 5:11). (“We have received the atonement” [Greek, reconciliation], cannot mean “We have received the laying aside of our own enmity”). Compare Romans 3:24Romans 3:25.

Hebrews 9:28 KJV

http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/hebrews/9-28.html

28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Do not be shaken in your faith… the faith God has given you and your heart, mind and soul- be strong to the end. Let us realize even our faith has come to us by God Himself.

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. 2 This is what the ancients were commended for. 3 By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

Hebrews 12:24 to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel. 25 See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven? 26 At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” 27 The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain. 28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, 29 for our “God is a consuming fire.”

“Rode He upon a donkey”©

There was a day Jesus was welcomed

into Jerusalem as a King… as its King,

that day rode He upon a donkey, a

humble sign of peace, heard people sing…

praised with branches of palm… and

yet seven days later to entomb, embalm,

their minds and hearts turned by the

religious leaders and lost their calm.

What happened… why the change? It is

found between reality and expectation,

the Jews wanted to be free from Roman

control, the iron hand of their realization

this was not the King wanted for the place

they were in, we want him (the King) now…

but God was come to serve their need

for redemption, the lamb of God, and how

this was Jehovah Emmanuel, the scholars

unknowing the God they served in the flesh,

for this was Jesus to come… spare humanity

from their sins: renewed, seen clean and fresh.

From a life without sin He bore our sins for us. From our lives of sin, nowcovered by His blood, we are seen by God as righteous- by the love and grace of His Son. From the obedience of Jesus to fulfill the will of God… we learn this true and good to be applied to our own lives. You have but to believe Jesus is who He claimed He was- the Son of God, God almighty, Jehovah Emmanuel!

John 12:13 KJV

http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/john/12-13.html

13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.

[Below is found under the Commentary Critical under the compare button for the scripture above]

Jesus cried–in a loud tone, and with peculiar solemnity. (Compare John 7:37 ).
and said, He that believeth on me, &c.–This seems to be a supplementary record of some weighty proclamations, for which there had been found no natural place before, and introduced here as a sort of summary and winding up of His whole testimony.

Can man make this proclamation without sinning? No… neither did Jesus!

[This is found in Matthew Henry’s Commentary below… verses 27-33]

The sin of our souls was the troubled of Christ’s soul, when he undertook to redeem and save us, and to make his soul an offering for our sin.The voice of the Father from heaven, which had declared him to be his beloved Son, at his baptism, and when he was transfigured, was heard proclaiming that He had both glorified his name, and would glorify it. Christ, reconciling the world to God by the merit of his death, broke the power of death, and cast out Satan as a destroyer. Christ, bringing the world to God by the doctrine of his cross, broke the power of sin, and cast out Satan as a deceiver. The soul that was at a distance from Christ, is brought to love him and trust him.There is power in the death of Christ to draw souls to him. We have heard from the gospel that which exalts free grace, and we have heard also that which enjoins duty; we must from the heart embrace both, and not separate them.

The hand to save us time within the teeth of a shark!

People speak so fondly of Uber…

as if they would concentrate it,

refine it… refresh it in their mind,

and yet not see just how it will fit

in a world so informed as to present

to us what it can also prevent us…

the pathfinder is then stolen within,

denied to find him or her we’ll cuss,

foreknowledge is pre-told, what comes

strips away the grasping of our soul,

this is not hard to imagine here, any

more, to control us is the very goal.

What was once called ‘The Department of Total Informational Awareness‘ is reclassified (morphed) into something we can wrap our minds around… to envision as an aid to our well being. Nothing could be farther from the truth, debilitating and restrictive (a leg iron and a monitor), to censure and prevent you from doing as you might like to do (by yourself and alone by choice)… once financial capabilities are also included. Have you been inoculated and indoctrinated yet… to be exposed (literally) to the shiny side of this (the side they want you to see) is to become familiar with it? The trap is almost set!

scientia est potentia… Latin for knowledge is power

1 John 4:5 KJV

5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.
