There is power mighty in the blood 2x There is power mighty in the blood of Jesus, There is power mighty in the blood. Excellent Jehovah, Wonderful Jehovah, there is no one greater than Jehovah Love Divine 2x.
Holy Father we come to with thankful for Who You are. Blessed be Thy Holy Name. Thank You for another bright day, Thank for the miracle of waking up this morning, Thank for the health of mind and body, blessed be thy Holy Name forever.
Beloveth, has God been faithful to You? Has He been loving and caring as He seem to make Himself? Have You notice that loving and caring go hand in hand? My answer is yes, I don’t know about You.
God created us in his image but the fall of man brought enmity between God and man. Not that God hates man but He is a Holy God Who cannot behold iniquities and the blood of bulls and rams were not enough to cleanse man from his sins. Our loving and caring Father sent His dear son Jesus Christ to get the cleansing done once and for all.
So that we can again reunite with Him and have constant fellowship without barriers.
Yesterday there was a promise to further discuss on how the success and failure of the past can be a hindrance to the future. Why do people always say “the good old days” especially when we are having challenges with where we are presently? Even when the past did not hold so much for us, we are still afraid to move into the future.
Have you ever read Phil 3:13-14. Here you see the power of ‘one thing’ and the ‘need to leave what is behind and stretch forward or leaving what is behind and press forward.’ I had a practical encounter with this verse of the Word in the 2nd week in December last year, I applied this verse of the Word and it worked.
Firstly, it help me to forgive those that were involved and secondly I believe the set time of God is yet to come and I move forward. And God honoured my obedience (forgiveness) and trust in Him. And today in that area of my life am not only singing and dancing, an also rejoicing.
Considering verse 14, “I press towards the mark” beloved, the race before us is in the front and not behind us. So for you to accomplish what God has for you, you must be willing to press forward. You must be willing to leave what is behind whether success or failure and move forward.
Do you want to be an overcomer, I tell you today to leave the hurting of yesterday, the disappointment of yesterday, the pains and agonies of yesterday and move into the glorious future God has prepared for you from the beginning. Is there already, all you need do is to navigate into it and keep on moving forward. Stop moving back and front.
Today’s topic is very crucial in the life of every child of God. This is one of the “one thing” that Jesus instructed us as He was about going back to His Father to do in His remembrance – “the breaking of bread and drinking of His blood” which represent “His body and blood”. But you must participate in it worthy.
The question is “Are you worthy to partake of it” why must you be worthy before partaking of it, let’s read 1 Cor 11: 27-30. So, it not a free for all but you must eat of it worthy. And as you do this always, you keep remembering the death and resurrection of Christ.
You keep remembering that a full price was paid to redeem you. You remind the devil that you are a dangerous specie having been redeemed by the Blood that was shed on the Calvary, so he must keep off you. Sickness must drop off you, poverty must not rob you of your ministry here on earth. (mention your case here and power in the blood it must drop off you) in Jesus Name.
Beloved, do you know that as salvation came from the death and resurrection Christ so also is healing, divine health, protection, deliverance, prosperity and whatever you desire from God. It is all-in one package. A ticket to salvation entitles to all others, are you aware of that?
Come, let us get down to the teaching of the day:
“This do in remembrance of Me.” 1Corinthians 11:24
It seems then, that Christians may forget Christ! There could be no need for this loving exhortation, if there were not a fearful supposition that our memories might prove treacherous. Nor is this a bare supposition: it is, alas! too well confirmed in our experience, not as a possibility, but as a lamentable fact.
It appears almost impossible that those who have been redeemed by the blood of the dying Lamb, and loved with an everlasting love by the eternal Son of God, should forget that gracious Saviour; but, if startling to the ear, it is, alas! too apparent to the eye to allow us to deny the crime. Forget Him who never forgot us! Forget Him who poured His blood forth for our sins! Forget Him who loved us even to the death!
Can it be possible? Yes, it is not only possible, but conscience confesses that it is too sadly a fault with all of us, that we suffer Him to be as a wayfaring man tarrying but for a night. He whom we should make the abiding tenant of our memories is but a visitor therein. The cross where one would think that memory would linger, and unmindfulness would be an unknown intruder, is desecrated by the feet of forgetfulness.
Does not your conscience say that this is true? Do you not find yourselves forgetful of Jesus? Some creature steals away your heart, and you are unmindful of Him upon whom your affection ought to be set. Some earthly business engrosses your attention when you should fix your eye steadily upon the cross. It is the incessant turmoil of the world, the constant attraction of earthly things which takes away the soul from Christ.
While memory too well preserves a poisonous weed, it suffereth the rose of Sharon to wither. Let us charge ourselves to bind a heavenly forget-me-not about our hearts for Jesus our Beloved, and, whatever else we let slip, let us hold fast to Him.
Beloved, did you read that “while our memory hold forth every other thing it suffereth that ‘one thing’ that is important to suffer “your remembrance of Jesus.” “So long we go through the day without remembering that we did not say our morning prayers before leaving the house”. “How long do we go on matters bothering us without remembering that we have not mention it to Jesus?” “How often do we suffer lack and want without taking it to the good Shepherd.”
Beloveth, stand your watch, if you really want to be blessed:
“Blessed is he that watcheth.” Revelation 16:15
“We die daily,” said the apostle. This was the life of the early Christians; they went everywhere with their lives in their hands. We are not in this day called to pass through the same fearful persecutions: if we were, the Lord would give us grace to bear the test; but the tests of Christian life, at the present moment, though outwardly not so terrible, are yet more likely to overcome us than even those of the fiery age.
We have to bear the sneer of the world—that is little; its blandishments, its soft words, its oily speeches, its fawning, its hypocrisy, are far worse. Our danger is lest we grow rich and become proud, lest we give ourselves up to the fashions of this present evil world, and lose our faith. Or if wealth be not the trial, worldly care is quite as mischievous. If we cannot be torn in pieces by the roaring lion, if we may be hugged to death by the bear, the devil little cares which it is, so long as he destroys our love to Christ, and our confidence in Him.
I fear me that the Christian church is far more likely to lose her integrity in these soft and silken days than in those rougher times. We must be awake now, for we traverse the enchanted ground, and are most likely to fall asleep to our own undoing, unless our faith in Jesus be a reality, and our love to Jesus a vehement flame. Many in these days of easy profession are likely to prove tares, and not wheat; hypocrites with fair masks on their faces, but not the true-born children of the living God.
Christian, do not think that these are times in which you can dispense with watchfulness or with holy ardour; you need these things more than ever, and may God the eternal Spirit display His omnipotence in you, that you may be able to say, in all these softer things, as well as in the rougher, “We are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.”
Where are the conquering Christians of our days? Did you read that- its blandishment, its soft words and its oily speeches…. are all sneers, so subtle that you don’t notice how gullible you are in the face of it.
The ‘only thing’ that will save you in all these things is to keep the “remembrance of Jesus” daily in focus. Ask the Holy Spirit to give you discernment in the mist of confusion and subtle devices of the evil ones. Keep watch, this is no time to lower your guide lest you fall into temptation and backslid.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
