Daily Devotional – For He is our Peace

“For he is our PEACE, who hath made both ONE, and hath BROKEN down the MIDDLE WALL of PARTITION between US; Having ABOLISHED in his FLESH the ENMITY, even the LAW of COMMANDMENTS contained in ORDINANCES; for to make in HIMSELF of twain ONE new man, so making PEACE; And that he might reconcile BOTH unto God in ONE body by the CROSS, having SLAIN the ENMITY thereby:” (Eph 2:14-16)

Were you aware that Jesus Christ is the end of the law to all those who believe? “For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.” (Rm 10:4) “But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:” (Rm 3:21-22) “Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;” (Mt 27:50-51) “Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; And having an high priest over the house of God; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)” (Heb 10:19-23)

If it weren’t for the mercies of the Lord any one of us may also find ourselves in prison some day for something we have done, God forbid, but remember wrong choices can sometimes ruin your life and everyone you knew in connection with you. It is of vital importance that you hear what I am saying to you. If it weren’t for the mercies of the Lord any one of us may also find ourselves in prison some day for something we have done. Wrong choices can sometimes ruin your life and everyone you knew in connection with you.

Lamentations 3:22
22 It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. You may be getting by with what you are doing right now but everyone of us have been guilty before God “Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.” (Psa 51:5) It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. We were all guilty before God!! No one is exempt from this! So quit running from God and quit running after your own carnal ways!! If God wanted you dead you wouldn’t be alive! If God wanted you drinking everyday of your life he wouldn’t have given you the opportunity to be born again of water and of the Spirit!! It’s time to put the bottle away!! “Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.” (Eph 5:17-21)

“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come. But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Rm 5:8-21) If it weren’t for the Mercies of the Lord we would all be damned to eternal hellfire in the Lake of fire to be revealed in due time!!!

Hear me!! It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. Stop running from God and quit looking for another fix, another hit, another pill, another drink, more sex, more ungodliness, more filth, and more wickedness, and more lewdness. “And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.” (Rm 13:11-14)

It’s time to repent and let God both heal you and forgive you of your past and press on toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus! Wherein our redemption is found! For if it weren’t for the mercies of the Lord we would all be consumed!! Not one of us would stand!! It is only be the grace of Almighty God and the redemption found in Christ Jesus that anyone of us can be made whole!! Do you want to be made whole? Do you want to find that place of peace that God has to offer to you through Jesus Christ? Then it’s time to come home! I said it’s high time to awake out of slumber and come home! It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. But I have done this and I have done that and I say to you the Apostle Paul wreaked havock on the church of the Living God, entering into every house, and forcing men and women committing them to prison. The Apostle Paul said “I verily thought with myself, that I ought to do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth. Which thing I also did in Jerusalem: and many of the saints did I shut up in prison, having received authority from the chief priests; and when they were put to death, I gave my voice against them. And I punished them oft in every synagogue, and compelled them to blaspheme; and being exceedingly mad against them, I persecuted them even unto strange cities.” (Acts 26:9-11) If it weren’t for the Mercies of the Lord we would all be consumed!!

It’s time to come home! No more excuses!! It’s time to come home! Jesus said, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (Mt 11:28-30) It’s time to come home!

To those who have never been born of water and of the Spirit as Jesus instructed Nicodemus in John chapter 3 verses 1-8 today is the day of salvation! It’s time to fulfill what Jesus has freely given to you and apply God’s free plan of salvation. To be born again of water and of the Spirit the Apostle Peter with the rest of the Apostles present told all of us how we are to be born again as Jesus had instructed saying, “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.” (Acts 2:38-39) Is the Lord calling you? Then it’s time to come home and partake of the rest of the Lord and to those who have not yet obeyed the scriptures of how to become born again you need to “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost” before it’s to late and you make your final arrival to the Lake of fire where the fire is never quenched! It’s time to come home!

Daily Devotional – Let us make Man in our Image after our likeness

“And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.” (1 Cor 15:45-47)

Did you know the last Adam, Jesus Christ, was the image the first Adam was made in and that this is the “us” that is referred to in Genesis 1:26a saying, “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness”? God works all things after the counsel of his own will. Thus the “us” of Genesis of whom God was speaking was his own self. But in the mind of God or the Word of God he was speaking of the image and likeness of his own self that man would be made in the image of. “God is a Spirit” (Jn 4:24a) and the image of which God was referring was the image of the man Christ Jesus.

“In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:” (Col 1:14-15) “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” (2 Cor 4:4) “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:” (Heb 1:3) “Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.” (Rm 5:14)

Daily Devotional – God is the LORD, which hath Showed us Light

God is the LORD, which hath showed us light: BIND THE SACRIFICE with cords, even unto the HORNS of the ALTAR. Thou art my God, and I WILL PRAISE thee: thou art my God, I WILL EXALT thee. O give THANKS unto the LORD; for he is GOOD: for his MERCY endureth FOR EVER.

Under the Old Testament the children of Israel’s sins were covered by an animal sacrifice and once a year rolled ahead on the day of Atonement. All Israel was waiting for the time the prophets prophesied of. The coming of a Messiah that would bring forth restoration, reconciliation, reformation, through the remission of sins.

“The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” (Jn 1:29) “But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?” (Heb 9:11-14)

Daily Devotional – The Consolation of Israel

“And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him. And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law, Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said, Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,” (Lk 2:25-30)

Did you know that Jesus was born under the law and partook of the law? Jesus came to redeem us from the curse of the law. “But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.” (Gal 4:4-5) “But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them. Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.” (Gal 3:11-14) “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” (Rm 8:1-4)

Daily Devotional – Born this day in the city of David the Saviour

“For unto you is BORN this day in the city of David a SAVIOUR, which is CHRIST the LORD. And this shall be a SIGN unto you; Ye shall find the BABE wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a MANGER. And suddenly there was with the ANGEL a multitude of the HEAVENLY HOST PRAISING GOD, and saying, GLORY to God in the HIGHEST, and on earth PEACE, GOOD WILL toward MEN.” (Lk 2:11-14)

Who was born this day in the city of David that was the Saviour? “I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.” (Isa 43:11) “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” (Isa 7:14) “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.” (Mt 1:21-23) “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” (Isa 9:6) “To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” (2 Cor 5:19-21)

Daily Devotional – A Light to Lighten the Gentiles

“Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.” (Mt 1:23) “A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.” (Lk 2:32) “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.” (Jn 3:19)

Are you a lover of the light or a lover of darkness? Your deeds will tell without you even speaking. Your actions will reveal of whom you serve? “Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men: Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.” (2 Cor 3:2-3) “Hell is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.” (Job 26:6) “For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.” (Lk 6:44) “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.” (Heb 4:12-13)
