Glorious God, who is like unto Thee? We thank You for another new week it can only be Your wondrous arm. Thank You for making it easy for us all through the month. We are entirely grateful to You.
Let the earth rejoice and the people be glad, our Lord is good. What a Mighty God we serve. How Excellent, how Wonderful are Thou O Lord! The earth giveth it increase to the sons of men. Father, remember Thy hand maid and deal kindly with her.
Beloved, hope we had a great week end with our basket full of fishers of men! Praise God. Behold the son of God who takes away the sins of the world, happy are of us who are call to the supper.
Are you glad to be called by the Lamb to the marriage Supper? There we will see the Jesus Son of God, glorifying Himself in your life; in my life.
Have your forgotten too soon why He came? I will remind you again “just because of you” to marry you again and bring you before His Father above. Are you glad to be among those that are called?
Yes! I am so glad I belong to Jesus. Beloved what about you? Are you glad as well? Are you rejoicing in Him who is able to do all things? He is a Mighty Man in battle. Am rejoicing that Jesus conquered the world that I may sit with Him far above all principalities and powers of this present time and the world to come.
Come with me as we consider again Who He is truly:
“Thou art fairer than the children of men.” Psalm 45:2
The entire person of Jesus is but as one gem, and His life is all along but one impression of the seal. He is altogether complete; not only in His several parts, but as a gracious all-glorious whole. His character is not a mass of fair colours mixed confusedly, nor a heap of precious stones laid carelessly one upon another; He is a picture of beauty and a breastplate of glory.
In Him, all the “things of good repute” are in their proper places, and assist in adorning each other. Not one feature in His glorious person attracts attention at the expense of others; but He is perfectly and altogether lovely. Oh, Jesus! Thy power, Thy grace, Thy justice, Thy tenderness, Thy truth, Thy majesty, and Thine immutability make up such a man, or rather such a God-man, as neither heaven nor earth hath seen elsewhere.
Thy infancy, Thy eternity, Thy sufferings, Thy triumphs, Thy death, and Thine immortality, are all woven in one gorgeous tapestry, without seam or rent. Thou art music without discord; Thou art many, and yet not divided; Thou art all things, and yet not diverse. As all the colours blend into one resplendent rainbow, so all the glories of heaven and earth meet in Thee, and unite so wondrously, that there is none like Thee in all things; nay, if all the virtues of the most excellent were bound in one bundle, they could not rival Thee, Thou mirror of all perfection.
Thou hast been anointed with the holy oil of myrrh and cassia, which Thy God hath reserved for Thee alone; and as for Thy fragrance, it is as the holy perfume, the like of which none other can ever mingle, even with the art of the apothecary; each spice is fragrant, but the compound is divine.
“Oh, sacred symmetry! oh, rare connection
Of many perfects, to make one perfection!
Oh, heavenly music, where all parts do meet
In one sweet strain, to make one perfect sweet!”
Are you singing along with us? You know what? It does not matter what the devil is saying concerning your destiny. It does not matter what his agents are conjuring against you. What is important is what God said concerning me? Can I take His promises to the bank and draw out cash? Yes! Ofcourse. But heaven trade not on cash, the currency of heaven is Faith. Do you believe in what God said concerning you? Will you be willing to work with him in the thin and when He made you fat? Whether the fig tree have fruits or not, what I know is that my foundation standeth sure; so I shall not be afraid.
The blood of Christ that save my soul is no mean thing neither the strips that takes away my sins and that of the whole world.
Come to the Sure Foundation in Christ Jesus:
“The foundation of God standeth sure.” 2Timothy 2:19
The foundation upon which our faith rests is this, that “God was in Christ reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them.” The great fact on which genuine faith relies is, that “the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us,” and that “Christ also hath suffered for sin, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God”; “Who Himself bare our sins in His own body on the tree”; “For the chastisement of our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.” In one word, the great pillar of the Christian’s hope is substitution.
The vicarious sacrifice of Christ for the guilty, Christ being made sin for us that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him, Christ offering up a true and proper expiatory and substitutionary sacrifice in the room, place, and stead of as many as the Father gave Him, who are known to God by name, and are recognized in their own hearts by their trusting in Jesus—this is the cardinal fact of the gospel. If this foundation were removed, what could we do? But it standeth firm as the throne of God.
We know it; we rest on it; we rejoice in it; and our delight is to hold it, to meditate upon it, and to proclaim it, while we desire to be actuated and moved by gratitude for it in every part of our life and conversation. In these days a direct attack is made upon the doctrine of the atonement. Men cannot bear substitution. They gnash their teeth at the thought of the Lamb of God bearing the sin of man.
But we, who know by experience the preciousness of this truth, will proclaim it in defiance of them confidently and unceasingly. We will neither dilute it nor change it, nor fritter it away in any shape or fashion. It shall still be Christ, a positive substitute, bearing human guilt and suffering in the stead of men.
We cannot, dare not, give it up, for it is our life, and despite every controversy we feel that “Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure.
The God of this world has veil their eyes, so the things of the Spirit cannot be understood by the carnal mind (Cor 4:4;Rom 8:4-7). We are called to continue in this task of “great commission” till all comes to the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
This week is declared blessed. The works of hands experience the touch of the Lord! Amen! The Wisdom of God will encompass us now and forever more. Amen! Let your Joy unlimited abide with us now and forever more.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
