How Excellent is Your Name O Lord! How excellent is Your Name O Lord! How Excellent is Your Name. How Excellent is Your Name. How Excellent is Your Name O God! How excellent is Your Name. How wonderful is Your Name, how excellent is Your Name O Lord!

Our Father in heaven, hallow be Thy Name, Thy Kingdom come has it is in heaven. Thank You for the gift of eternal life through Your son Jesus, Who went to the cross died and rose again according to the Word of God through His prophets. Thank You for that glorious morning that the women discovered an empty tomb.

Father what more can we say, than to shout alleluia in the highest because His death won us victory over Satan, sin, death and grave. What a glorious moment that heaven and earth and the angels sang hymn together. Even the dead in Christ rose from the death. The chains that held them captive was broken and they were set free. The chains that held them bound were destroyed and they rose from the grave.

Beloved, today someone is going to have that same experience today. Every good thing dead in your life is coming back to life today in Jesus Name. That power that raise Christ from dead is able to bring to life every good thing that satan and his cohorts has put to death in your life is coming back alive by the precious blood of the Lamb shed on the cross.

Come with me as I take you on bible trip this morning. Come with me to the book of Isaiah chapter 53. From verse number one, there was nothing desirable of our Lord Jesus. But a look from verse four is everything we pray for and will ever pray for.

Beloved, by His death on the cross, He borne our griefs and carried our sorrows. Jesus was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed.

Like we came across in one of our studies, Jesus keep mute because He this mission must be accomplished and thank God He did accomplished it. Praise God.

Is someone rejoicing with me now because of everything the cross represent in your life? Are you celebrating Jesus in Your life?

Is Jesus being lifted high in your life? Or do you still have cause to grumble and murmur? Beloveth, come along with as discover more from the message before us what more benefits we had from the cross:

“That through death He might destroy him that had the power of death.” Hebrews 2:14

O child of God, death hath lost its sting, because the devil’s power over it is destroyed. Then cease to fear dying. Ask grace from God the Holy Ghost, that by an intimate knowledge and a firm belief of thy Redeemer’s death, thou mayst be strengthened for that dread hour.

Living near the cross of Calvary thou mayst think of death with pleasure, and welcome it when it comes with intense delight. It is sweet to die in the Lord: it is a covenant-blessing to sleep in Jesus. Death is no longer banishment, it is a return from exile, a going home to the many mansions where the loved ones already dwell.

The distance between glorified spirits in heaven and militant saints on earth seems great; but it is not so. We are not far from home—a moment will bring us there. The sail is spread; the soul is launched upon the deep. How long will be its voyage? How many wearying winds must beat upon the sail ere it shall be reefed in the port of peace? How long shall that soul be tossed upon the waves before it comes to that sea which knows no storm?

Listen to the answer, “Absent from the body, present with the Lord.” Yon ship has just departed, but it is already at its haven. It did but spread its sail and it was there. Like that ship of old, upon the Lake of Galilee, a storm had tossed it, but Jesus said, “Peace, be still,” and immediately it came to land.

Think not that a long period intervenes between the instant of death and the eternity of glory. When the eyes close on earth they open in heaven. The horses of fire are not an instant on the road. Then, O child of God, what is there for thee to fear in death, seeing that through the death of thy Lord its curse and sting are destroyed? and now it is but a Jacob’s ladder whose foot is in the dark grave, but its top reaches to glory everlasting.

Beloved, the death of Jesus has freed us from the pains of death and has restored to us the power of eternal life. The empty tomb showed us that the resurrection power is real. Praise God.  If our Jesus did not raise from death, beloved, we will have been most miserable but thank God that His body did not suffer corruption rather as He said that on the third day He will rise again and so was it. Praise God! Alleluia!!!! Truly the battle is of the Lord, but we must maintain our ranks and file. please come along with me:

“Fight the Lord’s battles.” 1Samuel 18:17

The sacramental host of God’s elect is warring still on earth, Jesus Christ being the Captain of their salvation. He has said, “Lo! I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.” Hark to the shouts of war! Now let the people of God stand fast in their ranks, and let no man’s heart fail him.

It is true that just now in England the battle is turned against us, and unless the Lord Jesus shall lift His sword, we know not what may become of the church of God in this land; but let us be of good courage, and play the man. There never was a day when Protestantism seemed to tremble more in the scales than now that a fierce effort is making to restore the antichrist to his ancient seat.

We greatly want a bold voice and a strong hand to preach and publish the old gospel for which martyrs bled and confessors died. The Saviour is, by His Spirit, still on earth; let this cheer us. He is ever in the midst of the fight, and therefore the battle is not doubtful. And as the conflict rages, what a sweet satisfaction it is to know that the Lord Jesus, in His office as our great Intercessor, is prevalently pleading for His people!

O anxious gazer, look not so much at the battle below, for there thou shalt be enshrouded in smoke, and amazed with garments rolled in blood; but lift thine eyes yonder where the Saviour lives and pleads, for while He intercedes, the cause of God is safe. Let us fight as if it all depended upon us, but let us look up and know that all depends upon Him.

Now, by the lilies of Christian purity, and by the roses of the Saviour’s atonement, by the roes and by the hinds of the field, we charge you who are lovers of Jesus, to do valiantly in the Holy War, for truth and righteousness, for the kingdom and crown jewels of your Master. Onward! “for the battle is not yours but God’s.”

Did you just the last paragraph? Through His atonement we are free. We will no longer fight as victory depend on us but we look up to Him in whom everything depends upon. Praise God. Jesus paid the price. He settled the debt we owe and could not pay. He paid it with His blood and no demon has the power to demand any sacrifice from us again in Jesus Name.

Beloved a new you has merge. You are no longer indebted to satan, sin, death, and the grave. You are free; free indeed. If you rejoicing as I am doing this moment shout a big alleluia!!!!!!!!!!!!! The great transaction settled our debt. Thanks be to Jesus, Who loves us with an everlasting love (1 John 2:12).

Then join me to sing this song.

. Low in the grave he lay, Jesus my Savior,
waiting the coming day, Jesus my Lord!
Refrain:
Up from the grave he arose;
with a mighty triumph o’er his foes;
he arose a victor from the dark domain,
and he lives forever, with his saints to reign.
He arose! He arose! Hallelujah! Christ arose!

2. Vainly they watch his bed, Jesus my Savior,
vainly they seal the dead, Jesus my Lord!
(Refrain)

3. Death cannot keep its prey, Jesus my Savior;
he tore the bars away, Jesus my Lord!
(Refrain)

Remain blessed in the Lord.
