In 2014: The Arm Of The Lord Is Being Revealed To Those Who Fully Believe
(Ressurection Sunday Message)
The podcast for this meeting:
The Lord’s Highest Purpose is to recover His People!
“And it shall be in that day that the Root of Jesse shall stand as a signal for the peoples; of Him shall the nations inquire and seek knowledge, and His dwelling shall be glory [His rest glorious]! 11 And in that day the Lord shall again lift up His hand a second time to recover (acquire and deliver) the remnant of His people which is left, from Assyria, from Lower Egypt, from Pathros, from Ethiopia, from Elam [in Persia], from Shinar [Babylonia], from Hamath [in Upper Syria], and from the countries bordering on the [Mediterranean] Sea. 12 And He will raise up a signal for the nations and will assemble the outcasts of Israel and will gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth“ Isaiah 11:10-12.
“This is the [Lord’s] purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth [regarded as conquered and put under tribute by Assyria]; and this is [His omnipotent] hand that is stretched out over all the nations“ Isaiah 14:26.
“WHO HAS believed (trusted in, relied upon, and clung to) our message [of that which was revealed to us]? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been disclosed?“ Isaiah 53:1.
Do we believe the message we hear?
Do we see what His arm and hand is doing in our midst?
“So that what Isaiah the prophet said was fulfilled: Lord, who has believed our report and our message? And to whom has the arm (the power) of the Lord been shown (unveiled and revealed)? 39 Therefore they could not believe [they were unable to believe]. For Isaiah has also said, 40 He has blinded their eyes and hardened and benumbed their [callous, degenerated] hearts [He has made their minds dull], to keep them from seeing with their eyes and understanding with their hearts and minds and repenting and turning to Me to heal them. 41 Isaiah said this because he saw His glory and spoke of Him” John 12:38.
“But they have not all heeded the Gospel; for Isaiah says, Lord, who has believed (had faith in) what he has heard from us?“ Romans 10:16.
“But to one who, not working [by the Law], trusts (believes fully) in Him Who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited to him as righteousness (the standing acceptable to God)” Romans 4:5.
We must fully believe…..
“And will not [our just] God defend and protect and avenge His elect (His chosen ones), who cry to Him day and night? Will He defer them and delay help on their behalf? 8 I tell you, He will defend and protect and avenge them speedily. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find [persistence in] faith on the earth?” Luke 18:7-8.
We grow from faith to faith. We must be persistent in our faith!
KEY WORDS: OUR PERSISTENCE – ENDURANCE – CONTINUANCE – BEING CONSISTENT
“To those who by patient persistence in well-doing [ springing from piety] seek [unseen but sure] glory and honor and [ the eternal blessedness of] immortality, He will give eternal life” Romans 2:7.
Patient persistence receives the fullness of eternal life. The full life, the richness of His Divine Presence.
“THEREFORE THEN, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who have borne testimony to the Truth], let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us, 2 Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize] that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Just think of Him Who endured from sinners such grievous opposition and bitter hostility against Himself [reckon up and consider it all in comparison with your trials], so that you may not grow weary or exhausted, losing heart and relaxing and fainting in your minds.” Hebrews 12:1-3.
The Lord has waited for a people to grow into the maturity of their faith. Now He can move them into perfection in their faith. They will not fail, faint, or quit, they will prevail till the end.
The Battle between darkness and light; Righteousness and unrighteousness:
“Many evils confront the [consistently] righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all” Psalms 34:19.
“Cast your burden on the Lord [releasing the weight of it] and He will sustain you; He will never allow the [consistently] righteous to be moved (made to slip, fall, or fail)“ Psalms 55:22.
A consistent walk will never fail, fall, stumble, or slip. We must climb the mountain to see things from his view. We will see things as He sees them.
“Your people also shall all be [uncompromisingly and consistently] righteous; they shall possess the land forever, the branch of My planting, the work of My hands, that I may be glorified“ Isaiah 60:21.
The Awakening within unveils His Form and His Union to you!
“As for me, I will continue beholding Your face in righteousness (rightness, justice, and right standing with You); I shall be fully satisfied, when I awake [to find myself] beholding Your form [and having sweet communion with You]“ Psalm 17:15.
We are awakening. We are beginning to behold Him. We are going to be satisfied in our union with Him. We shall behold Him, we shall know Him, we shall be made like Him.
“The grace (favor and spiritual blessing) of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the presence and fellowship (the communion and sharing together, and participation) in the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen (so be it)“ 2 Corinthians 13:14.
(HE IS OUR COMMON-UNION)
“For the perverse are an abomination [extremely disgusting and detestable] to the Lord; but His confidential communion and secret counsel are with the [uncompromisingly] righteous (those who are upright and in right standing with Him)“ Proverbs 3:32.
His Confidential Communion and Secret Counsels come to those who believe and live in Union with Him!
“The secret [of the sweet, satisfying companionship] of the Lord have they who fear (revere and worship) Him, and He will show them His covenant and reveal to them its [deep, inner] meaning“ Psalms 25:14.
“If any man desires to do His will (God’s pleasure), he will know (have the needed illumination to recognize, and can tell for himself) whether the teaching is from God or whether I am speaking from Myself and of My own accord and on My own authority” John 7:17.
His illumination within us reveals to us what is true and what is not true.
“I do not call you servants (slaves) any longer, for the servant does not know what his master is doing (working out). But I have called you My friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from My Father. [I have revealed to you everything that I have learned from Him.]“ John 15:15.
Go and tell others that which you have heard, and that which you have seen. This is the gospel…..
We are the “Body of Christ” upon the earth…
We are the “Em-body-ment of Christ on the earth…
“Assuming that you have really heard Him and been taught by Him, as [all] Truth is in Jesus [embodied and personified in Him]” Ephesians 4:21.
We are moving from awakening into abiding
We are moving from belief unto fully believing
We are moving from fellowship into communion and then on into union with, and in Him!
“But take diligent heed to do the commandment and the law which Moses the servant of the Lord charged you: to love the Lord your God and to walk in all His ways and to keep His commandments and to cling to and unite with Him and to serve Him with all your heart and soul [your very life]“ Joshua 22:5.
It’s time to awaken and to resurrect our faith, and then truly believe will all of our hearts, our minds, our strength, and with all that is within us, and then we can truly love one another, just as we love Him.
