Unto the Lord be the glory great things He has done unto the Lord be thy glory great things He has done great things He has done greater things He will do, unto the Lord be thy glory great things He has done.// Lift Jesus higher higher, lift Jesus higher higher, O lift Him higher higher, lift up Jesus higher, higher.

The Great I Am, Wonderful Redeemer, Precious Jesus, Eternal Rocks of Ages, Thank You for Your love and peace that knows no bound in our lives. Thank You for holding forth all that You have made with Your Mighty Hand, blessed be Thy Holy Name in Jesus Name, Thank You for preserving us from all evil. Blessed be Thy Name forever and ever.

Beloved, do you know that the first appearance of Jesus led all men to salvation. Have you been save by the blood that He shed on the cross? Are you clothed by blood that purgeth and heal? Or are still toying with sin. Playing games with what ought not to be mentioned amongst us (1Thess 4:3-6).

Are you among those whose opinion is that Christ death on the Christ will wipe away all your sin so you go on sinning and coming back for cleansing? Be warned before it is late for you to turn back and run for your dear life. For God did not call us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness, therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man but God Who has also given us His Holy Spirit (Heb 4:7-8).

Beloved, are you looking for Jesus? I believe that you ought to look for Him where he will be found. It means that there a places you will look for Jesus. However, worthy of note is that in the first appearance of Jesus, He appeared to all men, however according to our text today Jesus’s second appearance will only be witness by those who are ready and are waiting for Him.

The question here is ‘Are you one of them?’ Are you waiting for the second appearance of Jesus or are you of the opinion that He will never come again?

Well this message is coming your way to help you know that as Jesus was taken before the eyes of the disciple likewise He will come back, the dead in Christ will rise first and we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with Him in the cloud to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord (1Thess 4:18-17)

So done be naïve neither let yourself be deceive because Jesus is coming back again (Rev 22:6-7, 12-16).

Beloveth looking at the way your daily living and the way you conduct your daily affairs can you answer the following question “Are You sanctified by God the Father” “Are you sanctified in Jesus Christ”? “Are you through sanctification by the Holy Spirit?”

We hear daily from brethren “I am born again”, who is bearing witness of your new birth? Is it God Himself? or is it Jesus? or is the Holy Spirit bearing witness of your new birth in Christ Jesus?

You cannot have a witness without being accountable and without growing in the faith. So many brethren has been born again with nothing to show for it. They are not bearing fruits of righteousness nor the fruit of the Spirit (Rom7:4; Phil 1:11). They are not winning souls to the kingdom neither are bring any to Christ all they know is that they are saved and that is all.

They are not working to the salvation of others around them. This is the highest act of ‘kindness’ when you join force with other brethren to save souls from going to hell.

May God help us as we going the teaching of today, to see where and where we need to fortified towards the second coming of Christ. It is also important to note that though it may seems as if there difference operation in the trinity but is important to note that They are One and the same, praise the Lord.

Come with me as we go into today’s teaching:

“Unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.” Heb. 9:28

This is our hope. He to whom we have already looked as coming once to bear the sins of many will have another manifestation to the sons of men; this is a happy prospect in itself. But that second appearing has certain peculiar marks which glorify it exceedingly.

Our Lord will have ended the business of sin. He has so taken it away from His people, and so effectually borne its penalty, that He will have nothing to do with it at His second coming. He will present no sin-offering, for He will have utterly put sin away.

Our Lord will then complete the salvation of His people. They will be finally and perfectly saved, and will in every respect enjoy the fullness of that salvation. He comes not to bear the result of our transgressions, but to bring the result of His obedience; not to remove our condemnation, but to perfect our salvation.

Our Lord thus appears only to those who look for Him. He will not be seen in this character by men whose eyes are blinded with self and sin. To them He will be a terrible Judge, and nothing more. We must first look to Him, and then look for Him; and in both cases our look shall be life.

And have life abundantly when you sanctified by God the Father, the son and the Holy Spirit:

“Sanctified by God the Father.” Jude 1:1

“Sanctified in Christ Jesus.” 1Corinthians 1:2

“Through sanctification of the Spirit.” 1Peter 1:2

 

Mark the union of the Three Divine Persons in all their gracious acts. How unwisely do those believers talk who make preferences in the Persons of the Trinity; who think of Jesus as if He were the embodiment of everything lovely and gracious, while the Father they regard as severely just, but destitute of kindness.

Equally wrong are those who magnify the decree of the Father, and the atonement of the Son, so as to depreciate the work of the Spirit. In deeds of grace none of the Persons of the Trinity act apart from the rest. They are as united in their deeds as in their essence. In their love towards the chosen they are one, and in the actions which flow from that great central source they are still undivided.

Specially notice this in the matter of sanctification. While we may without mistake speak of sanctification as the work of the Spirit, yet we must take heed that we do not view it as if the Father and the Son had no part therein. It is correct to speak of sanctification as the work of the Father, of the Son, and of the Spirit. Still doth Jehovah say, “Let us make man in our own image after our likeness,” and thus we are “his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”

See the value which God sets upon real holiness, since the Three Persons in the Trinity are represented as co-working to produce a Church without “spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing.” And you, believer, as the follower of Christ, must also set a high value on holiness—upon purity of life and godliness of conversation.

Value the blood of Christ as the foundation of your hope, but never speak disparagingly of the work of the Spirit which is your meetness for the inheritance of the saints in light. This day let us so live as to manifest the work of the Triune God in us.

These are the promise of our Jesus as it is written in Lk 20:36 and Jn 8:12, please open your bible to read. If You are in Christ, you shall not die, You will be children of God and Christ light will shine forth in You, You will never walk in darkness again:

Again let us ask God for the grace to be sanctified through and through as to be part of the second coming of Jesus. I pray for you that you will miss rapture if you still alive when Jesus will come again neither will body see corruption in case you are dead before He comes. Beloved, you will not save yourself with your own blood (Rev 7:13-14; Rev 12:11; Rev 9:6; Rev 13:16:17).

Looking for Jesus? Seek Him when He will be found. Seek Him where He will be found. Praise the Name of the Lord. join me as we sing this song together- Everlasting Father, Everlasting Son, Immortal Holy Ghost be thou glorified, Everlasting Father, Everlasting Son, Immortal Holy Ghost be thou glorified.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
