Truth in Palmyra

Jesus intercedes for us

And, he is our ONLY intercessor, no matter what others might teach, that we need the intercession of saints, priests or any other to speak on our behalf. The veil is rent, and we may now approach the throne of grace ourselves through the Lord Jesus Christ.

Beholding Him Ministries

:Hebrews 7-25cContinuing to behold the greatness and compassion of our God!

Intercede = intervene on behalf of another
Hebrews 7:25, “
…because he [Jesus] always lives to intercede for them.”

How very comforting to know that Jesus is alive and lives to make intercession for those who come to God through him. The Lord desires that none will perish (2 Peter 3:9).

My life matures with so very much to enjoy

Being with grandchildren brings love and joy

God blesses us with these matchless wonders

Hearing their playfulness louder than thunder

The Lord has blessed my role as a grandfather

Bringing love opportunities without any bother

Morning arrives with my coffee cup filled

Thinking of grandchildren spawns a thrill

Some live close, others reside farther away

Praying for each one helps to start my day

Their parents feel blessed with each child

Allowing me to call each one my grandchild

These children march through remarkable lives

Offering vivid moments that continue to thrive

Photographs authenticate each child’s life story

Filling my appetite with incredible love and glory

God has glorified me with these little tikes

Reminding of humble times, forever to like

Ambassadors for Reconciliation

Efua asked this in the post:”How well are we fulfilling our commission as Christ’s ambassadors?”The problem is never that we are not equipped or empowered for the mission Jesus has given us, but that we aren’t ready and willing. Great post, Efua, and a challenge to us all.

Grace Over Pain

“So we are Christ’s ambassadors, God making His appeal as it were through us. We [as Christ’s personal representatives] beg you for His sake to lay hold of the divine favor [now offered you] and be reconciled to God.” 2 Corinthians 5:20 AMPC

For the past few weeks the above bible scripture have been on my mind. And each time it comes, the word “reconciled” is amplified in my heart. Last week my 7 years old daughter came back from school and with excitement and she said “mum today in RE (Religious Education), we were taught about reconciliation……”. Again in all she said, reconciliation was amplified in my heart and it got me meditating on the above bible verse.

Reconciliation is the restoration of friendship. When God created the world, it was perfect. The worship and fellowship was pure until sin came in through Adam and Eve. All through old testament, many…

He’s Waving Me Around

God clearly expects us to use the brains He gave us, Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” Yet, no amount of proof and logic will ever convince a lost person to believe, or a saved person to actually follow Him daily. Ultimately each of those choices is a problem of the heart. Hebrews 11:6 “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” Excellent post, Mike

New Hope for Dry Bones

The other night a friend of mine was talking about when he went to have heart surgery.  He said there was a doctor he had spoken to  for about five minutes, a anesthetist he had just met, a nurse that had spent about a half hour with him and several others that had just been around.

Yet, when they put him under, he trusted each one to do their job and to do it well.

He also said that he had passes a semi on a two-lane highway that was traveling at a slow rate of speed and all that made him certain going on around was safe was an arm hanging out the window of the semi motioning to go ahead.

Even though he didn’t know this guy waving the hand, somehow he managed to trust him with a situation that could be life-threatening.

I’m sure my point has…

Class Day One

Well, today is the day. The first day of school. And, my Mommy didn’t even walk me to school!

God Searchers ~

Too many of us are looking in all the wrong places for true joy when God offers it freely. Thanks, Deborah Ann

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Some people search,
for life’s real meaning
they look everywhere
for some reasoning.

They grope around,
hoping they’ll find
the peace they need
to ease their mind.

Some people look,
for anything to idolize
they seek far and wide
to find that golden prize.

They are on a quest,
for spirituality . . .
to help them understand
their own immortality.

Some search everywhere,
for a god of some kind
when the True Living One
is right here to find!

~~~~~~

Acts 17:27

“That they should seek the Lord,
if haply they might feel after him,
and find him, though he be not
far from every one of us:”

Bogard Press Daily Devotional-God Will Always Complete His Work

God Will Always Complete His Work

Philippians 1:3-6

“Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ,” Philippians 1:6.

Is anybody ever guilty of leaving projects undone? In my own household procrastination has been made into a finely honed skill. God, however, gets things done. God completes what He starts, and He never leaves unfinished business. In this passage, we can see a great example of how God completes things both in the lives of individuals and in accordance with His overall master plan.

Once we are saved by God, that work is finished; we do not work towards completing our salvation. God saves and God keeps. What then, does it mean, that He will finish what He started? At our salvation we are fully justified, but we continue in the process of sanctification. When the Lord returns, we will be perfected for all eternity. In the meantime all of us are works in progress.

God wishes to mold each of us into His image and see us grow in holiness and in His will. He also wishes to see this world become a different place than it is. In its current state, our planet is nothing but an expanded version of each person without Jesus; we are all condemned and facing death. Our personal salvation solves our problem, but the world remains just as before. That is why God works a work in us. He is “not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9). His ultimate plan is that we work that plan. Are we?

Do God’s children have a sure inheritance?

If we can’t get excited about this, then we have a problem. Well, said, Michael, and thanks.

Jesus Quotes and God Thoughts

Child of God

Now here is some very good news. I am a child of God. All of us who follow Jesus are His children.

And …. as children, we have an inheritance.

Now this is stunning. All of creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God. My oh my. I’m doing a happy dance over that.

What are we inheriting from our Father? The son is rich, while the servant is poor. We are both “sons and heirs.” And since we are adopted—placed as adult sons in the family—we may begin drawing on our inheritance right now.

God has made available to us:

  • the riches of His grace
  • the riches of His glory
  • the riches of His goodness
  • the riches of His wisdom

All of the riches of God are found in the Messiah! We will overcome everything and inherit everything. It will be beautiful. We…
