Yes! Faithful Father, You are our Messiah, Thank You for being God unto us. Who can be compared with Thee? In heaven You are God. On earth; You reigneth forever. Let the living Praise the Lord. Beloved, it is a privilege given to us by God to serve Him and to be all He has made us to be. Thank You Lord for another blessed day, week to all You made and ordained us to be. Glory be to Your Name on high.
Beloved, how was your weekend? Good we all made it to this wonderful day, to God Alone be all the glory in Jesus Name. Can you raise your voice to appreciate God in your own unique way? God made us individual for a reason best known to Him, even identical twins, God always make a distinctive “mark” to different them.
Our God is Mighty, Great and Awesome. His love is everlasting and He lives from one generation to another. Great is He. And He is greatly to be Praise. His goodness is without equal and He is worthy of our praises. He is love, therefore He sent His only Begotten Son to die on the cross so that we will live and reign with Him at the end.
Beloved, the blood of bulls and goats were not enough to cleanse us from sin. When Adam and Eve sin in the Garden of Eden, God killed an animal to purify and cloth them from shame they have exposed themselves to due to sin. Beloved all through Abrahamic era, Mosaic era, and the prophets of old, they used the blood of bulls and goats, dove and turtle for the cleansing of sins and other offenses but none was good enough to endear them back to God.
God therefore sent His son to die. Jesus came willingly not compulsion as was recorded in Rev 5 and 6. Beloved, when the children of Israelite sinned in the wilderness on their way to the promise Land, God allowed them to be bitten by poisonous snakes. However, Moses cried unto God and God instructed him to make a fiery serpent and set it upon a standard: and it shall come to pass, that every one bitten, when he seeth it shall live.
Wow! God is kind and merciful. Beloved, when Jesus referred to it in the New Testament in out theme text for today He said “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me” referring to what happened in Num 21:8.
Jesus is our Mighty Magnet, He draw us to Himself and makes us live. Beloved, are you drawn to Him? do also know that Jesus is our advocate before the Father.
Let us once again remind ourselves of the promises of Jesus in His office as our “Advocate”. It will do us a lot of good knowing that we are not alone in this wicked and perverse generation. He will save us and preserve us to the end. Praise the Lord!
Let discover more below:
“And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.” John 12:32
Come, ye workers, be encouraged. You fear that you cannot draw a congregation. Try the preaching of a crucified, risen, and ascended Saviour; for this is the greatest “draw” that was ever yet manifested among men. What drew you to Christ but Christ? What draws you to Him now but His own blessed self?
If you have been drawn to religion by anything else, you will soon be drawn away from it; but Jesus has held you, and will hold you even to the end. Why, then, doubt His power to draw others? Go with the name of Jesus to those who have hitherto been stubborn, and see if it does not draw them.
No sort of man is beyond this drawing power. Old and young, rich and poor, ignorant and learned, depraved or amiable — all men shall feel the attractive force. Jesus is the one magnet. Let us not think of any other. Music will not draw to Jesus, neither will eloquence, logic, ceremonial, or noise. Jesus Himself must draw men to Himself; and Jesus is quite equal to the work in every case.
Be not tempted by the quackeries of the day; but as workers for the Lord work in His own way, and draw with the Lord’s own cords. Draw to Christ, and draw by Christ, for then Christ will draw by you.
Yes He will draw you because He is our advocate. Let’s keep going:
“If any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.” 1John 2:1
“If any man sin, we have an advocate.” Yes, though we sin, we have Him still. John does not say, “If any man sin he has forfeited his advocate,” but “we have an advocate,” sinners though we are. All the sin that a believer ever did, or can be allowed to commit, cannot destroy his interest in the Lord Jesus Christ, as his advocate.
The name here given to our Lord is suggestive. “Jesus.” Ah! then He is an advocate such as we need, for Jesus is the name of one whose business and delight it is to save. “They shall call His name Jesus, for He shall save His people from their sins.” His sweetest name implies His success.
Next, it is “Jesus Christ“—Christos, the anointed. This shows His authority to plead. The Christ has a right to plead, for He is the Father’s own appointed advocate and elected priest. If He were of our choosing He might fail, but if God hath laid help upon one that is mighty, we may safely lay our trouble where God has laid His help. He is Christ, and therefore authorized; He is Christ, and therefore qualified, for the anointing has fully fitted Him for His work. He can plead so as to move the heart of God and prevail. What words of tenderness, what sentences of persuasion will the anointed use when He stands up to plead for me!
One more letter of His name remains, “Jesus Christ the righteous.” This is not only His character BUT His plea. It is His character, and if the Righteous One be my advocate, then my cause is good, or He would not have espoused it. It is His plea, for He meets the charge of unrighteousness against me by the plea that He is righteous. He declares Himself my substitute and puts His obedience to my account.
My soul, thou hast a friend well fitted to be thine advocate, He cannot but succeed; leave thyself entirely in His hands.
Beloved, what a beautiful way to start a week. Knowing that we have an advocate with the Father who will plea our cause, let us therefore come before Him with confident and trusting Him to speak peace, healing, deliverance, protection, provision and preservation as we go through the week ahead of us.
Beloved, on this premise we declare this week blessed in the Name of Jesus. We will go in the Name of the Lord and return with testimonies. Victory is all the way. This is one of the package of Assurance from Jesus Christ for His children in this season.
Jesus is our advocate. When He is lifted; He will draw us to Himself. Glory be to God on high.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
