UNCONDITIONAL LOVE/CONDITIONAL BLESSINGS

The love of God is unconditional.  Paul says in Rom: 8 v 38 & 39  For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39) Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Wow!  Do I, do you, really believe what we have just read?  Let us prayerfully read again the above scripture and ask ourselves, am I fully persuaded as Paul declares himself to be?  If we just take the part which says;  things present, nor things to come, let us examine whether we are fully persuaded that God’s love is prevalent in our present circumstances, and in those to come. What am I believing, right now, about the difficulties of my present situation?  What am I believing about my future?  Am I in fear, anticipating what might happen in any forthcoming event or situation? 1 John: 4 v 18.  There is no fear in love;  but perfect love casteth out fear:  because fear hath torment.  He that feareth is not made perfect in love.  All fear is built on a lie.  Deal with fear and fear stays near, deal with the lie, and fear will die! If I am in fear about anything, I am not fully...

OBTAINING THE SMILE OF GOD’S APPROVAL

In last weeks blog we quoted the word from Rom 2:1  that God will not excuse me when I use my natural judgement against another.  We also stated how my pride expresses its self  by natural judgement.  Prov: 16v 5-7 says, Everyone that is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord; though hand join in  hand, he shall not be unpunished.  By mercy and truth iniquity is purged:  and by fear of the Lord men depart from evil.  When a man’s ways please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him. I pray that the Lord by his Spirit will give us revelation on how important these scriptures are to assuring his promise of abundant life towards us.  Terms and conditions apply!! First of all, let us consider the severity of the words in Rom: 2 v 1 and Prov: 16 v 5.  INEXCUSABLE and ABOMINATION.  When the Word of God uses such strong and severe words as these to express how He feels about our condition, surely we should give serious consideration as to whether they apply to me, and ask the Holy Spirit to search my heart! How many of my prayerful requests remain unanswered because of my judgments I hold against others?  God will not excuse me unless I repent. For a few moments let us meditate on the...

FROM WHAT SOURCE DO I GET MY INFORMATION ?

We sang in our Fellowship this morning… In your presence there is joy, I will linger I will stay, In your presence day by day, Till your likeness be seen in me. Something to consider. If the likeness of Christ Jesus is to be seen in me, what is it that prevents it? Isaiah 11: 2-3 Speaking of the Lord Jesus says: And the spirit of the Lord will rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears. How many of my judgments come form the sight of my eyes, the hearing of my ears and the lack of a quick understanding in the fear of the Lord? The blue print or pattern for my walk with God is made manifest by the relationship Jesus had with his Father.  As it worked for him, so it will work for us. He came to reveal the Father to us.  He did not judge by the sight of his eyes nor the hearing of his ears but listening in his spirit what the Father would have him say and do. When I receive information from the wrong source it is expressed in my natural judgments which...

HONOURING THE FATHER

The word ‘disclaimer’ according to the dictionary means:- to renounce claim to, or responsibility for; to disown; to repudiate or to give up all claim by denial. When the Jews accused Jesus of making himself equal with God because he had said that God was his Father, Jesus in John 5  : 19 gave a ‘disclaimer’.  The son can do nothing of himself but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the son likewise.  Again in verse 30 he re-emphasises, I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgement is just; because – I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me. In this journey, on our walk with the Lord, there are many things that we must disclaim if God is to be glorified in our lives. Jesus came to show us, by demonstration, how to relate correctly to our Father God.  He always gave credit due, to his Father, and never took it to himself. Time and again he disclaimed any ability of himself to achieve.  When one called him ‘Good Master’ Jesus said to him, “why callest thou me good? none is good save one, that is, God” quoted from Luke 18: 18 & 19. Why is it so important for us, as believers, to follow...
