Rejoice: Rejoice in the Lord and again I say Rejoice Phill. 4:4
Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls:Yet I will exult in the LORD, I will rejoice in the God of my salvation. The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds' feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer on my stringed instruments. Habakkuk 3:18-19
When Jesus Christ walked this earth the religious rulers of his day questioned
why He did things like healing the sick, comforting the lost and other acts of kindness on the holy day, the Sabbath. They felt that He was breaking the religious laws. Jesus asked them if man was made for the Sabbath, or the Sabbath, the Law, was made for man.
That was a powerful statement because it showed what Jesus thought was the proper order of things. He in essence was saying that man is the important thing here, the Sabbath and the Law was given to benefit man, not to burden him down. This also shows us the heart of Father God.
Now here’s a verse that must be taken just as it says to grasp the real meaning of it,“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us,” (Romans 5:8). How many of us knew that God loved us when we had no desire for God whatsoever? But, He did love us, even when we did not understand Him and might have wanted no part of Him.
CONFIDENCE IN GOD : COVENANT OF SALVATION
International Standard Version
My dear friends, you have always obeyed, not only when I was with you but even more now that I'm absent. In the same way continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling. KING JAMES VERSION Therefore, my dearly-loved friends, as I have always found you obedient, labor earnestly with fear and trembling--not merely as though I were present with you, but much more now since I am absent from you--labor earnestly, I say, to make sure of your own salvation. Continue to Labor in the Spirit so that you will not loose your Joy, the closeness with the lord , the direction for your life , and you know all the benefits that comes with salvation , but you will never lose your salvation , there is no scripture in the bible that says that. Let s look at Psalm 121 verses;1-8
- 1) I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence my help comes
- 2) My help."My help comes from the Lord, which made Heaven and earth."
- 3)"He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber."
- [4) We have already answered that question 'Who keeps us?' in verse 3)
- [5)"Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep."
- " The Lord is they keeper" (Who is your keeper? The Lord is your keeper.) "the Lord is they shade upon they right hand."(concentrate on the Lord your keeper and he will instruct your path)
- [ 6) "The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night."
- [ 7) "The Lord shall preserve thee" (God is going to preserve you. Who's going to preserve you?God is going to preserve you.)"from all evil:" (How much evil?All evil.)"he shall preserve they soul."(God watches over you. I think He protects you in every respect, but particularly He mentions: He preserves your soul
- [ 8] "The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore."
It is important that we believe the Bible record :it is God's record He is the author of the bible and we have this confidence in Him that He does not Lie when he say we will have eternal life through Jesus Christ He Meant it < The conditions was that we Believe in Christ Jesus ,repent be baptised by the water and the Spirit , and serve God through Jesus Christ.
God the Father actually loves us , harboring no ill will towards us?“And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, He (Jesus ) stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem, and sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him.
And they did not receive Him, because His face was as though he would go to Jerusalem. And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? But He turned and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them.” (Luke 9:51-).
Salvation:The fact that Jesus has saved you.and you have accept
away from you and your efforts) that Jesus (sinless Son of God) died (a death in which he supernaturally received God’s punishment for all sins)for you who believe and accept.
The means is faith : which is simply accepting as fact for yourself
Hebrews 7:22-28 And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death: But this man Jesus Christ , because He continues ever, It’s certainly true: God wants us to know that we are saved.
If you have not received God’s free gift of acceptance and would love to receive Jesus ask him today
JESUS IS LORD
