Let your knee not touch the ground in prayer
if you deny the ground, this Earth, He made…
thinking you alone know something about God
when you speak lies… nothing you‘ve obeyed,
there will be the same mercy you show those
you‘ve killed to get ahead, make your peace…
the same mercy you would afford His children,
those living in His hand He won‘t release,
find you this pleasure today, but a moment
for His time comes…. draws nearer to thee,
the blood of the saints calls to Him and it
will be His face you‘ll bow to on bended knee,
nothing has been hidden from you… His word
tells man‘s history before man sees it happen,
God tells us these things not to confound us
but by seeing it our love and faith to deepen,
know Him for the sins He bore at the cross…
your sins and mine He took, and this is grace,
He paid the price of sins cost for each of us,
personally, so we could then seek His face.
Mystery… there is no mystery to His greatness,
He is God Almighty… He lives beyond the grave,
He rose again to show the whole world He is
God, The Messiah come, He alone can save.
Ephesians 1:9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: 10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:
[The two excerpts below are taken from this link, in abstract, coming from Commentary by Matthew Henry]
Blessings were made known to believers, by the Lord’s showing to them the mystery of his sovereign will, and the method of redemption and salvation. He dispenses all his blessings, according to his good pleasure. His Divine teaching led whom he pleased to see the glory of those truths, which others were left to blaspheme. What a gracious promise that is, which secures the gift of the Holy Ghost to those who ask him! The sanctifying and comforting influences of the Holy Spirit seal believers as the children of God, and heirs of heaven. These are the first-fruits of holy happiness. For this we were made, and for this we were redeemed; this is the great design of God in all that he has done for us; let all be ascribed unto the praise of his glory.
God has laid up spiritual blessings for us in his Son the Lord Jesus; but requires us to draw them out and fetch them in by prayer. Are not the best of us unwilling to come under God’s yoke, though there is no other way to find rest for the soul? Do we not for a little pleasure often part with our peace? And if we dispute less, and prayed more with and for each other, we should daily see more and more what is the hope of our calling, and the riches of the Divine glory in this inheritance. Nothing less than Almighty power will work this in us. Here is signified that it is Christ the Savior, who supplies all the necessities of those who trust in him, and gives them all blessings in the richest abundance.
We are also told in scripture every knee shall bow, every tongue will confess, Jesus is Lord. The old and new testaments confirm this message.
Isaiah 45:23 KJV
23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.
Romans 14:11 KJV
11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
[Below is from this link… an abstract; which is descriptive of: Messianic Prophecy, the suffering Jesus undertook for us all as being the Paschal Lamb (The Passover Lamb) for His people and all peoples. Told to us by John the Baptist (in John 1:29; John 1:36) of what Jesus would fulfill, the word of God come to pass.]
The Suffering Servant/Lamb. The disfigured, suffering Servant of Isaiah 52:13-53:12 is commonly interpreted as a messianic prophecy. The Servant would arise from humble origins, be despised and rejected, suffer physical wounds, and be treated like a leper, while taking upon himself our infirmities, diseases, transgressions, iniquities, and deserved punishment for sin. The climax of the Servant’s vicarious suffering is analogous to a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and is silent (Isa 53:7).
All that is left for us to do is choose… so choose you this day whom you will, and I’d pray it will be The Messiah… the Lamb, for many will come to fight against Him but will fail. You will choose life, won’t you? (D.V.)
Your Brother in Christ Jesus,
P.S. I wish you all a blessed Passover, 2015, one which leads to: peace of heart, strength of faith and a deeper conviction of the truth of the Gospel message. The time is short… for no man (truly) knows the hour or the time except by the signals God grants us all. Let our hands be busy about His work… His love to tell.
Does time on your hands really eat at you? Our hands can fail the mission we have been given, to tell ‘the Gospel message’ (God’s Will)… and we risk our own death from this consequence. Keep in mind… time is short!
Let’s pray for strength… and the persecuted church throughout the world!
