Love Never Fails

So these things continue forever: faith, hope, and love. And the greatest of these is love.” – 1 Cor. 13:13

 Jesus Christ, the Messiah, never wrote a book yet His message of the Gospel and the nature of His love was indelibly impressed upon the hearts and minds of His followers who wrote about it in the pages of the Bible. They could never forget the love of their Savior and Lord. He was their model. His very life and sacrificial death clearly defined love for them – and for us today.

Health and Salvation by the Name of Jesus

Divine-Healing“It is his name—that is, by faith in his name—that this man was healed whom you see and know. Yes, the faith that comes through Jesus has given this man this perfect health in the presence of all of you all.” – Acts 3:16

After Pentecost, the paralytic man was healed through Peter and John at the gate of the temple. It was “in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth” that they said to him, “Rise up and walk,” and as soon as the people in their amazement ran together to them, Peter declared that it was the name of Jesus which had so completely healed the man.

As the result of this miracle and of Peter’s discourse, many people who had heard the Word believed. The following day, Peter repeated these words before the Sanhedrin, “By the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth… does this man stand here before you whole”; and then he added, “There is none other name under heaven.., whereby we must be saved.” – Acts 4:12) This statement of Peter’s declares to us that the name of Jesus both heals and saves. We have here a teaching of the highest import for divine healing.

We see that healing and health form part of Christ’s salvation. In heaven even our bodies will have their part in salvation; salvation will not be complete for us until our bodies shall enjoy the full redemption of Christ. Why then should we not believe in this work of redemption here below? Even already here on earth, the health of our bodies is a fruit of the salvation which Jesus has acquired for us.

We see also that health as well as salvation is to be obtained by faith.

The tendency of man by nature is to bring about his salvation by his works. While for the body, he makes use of well-known remedies; why then should he seek for divine healing?
Happy is he who comes to understand that it is the will of God to heal; that God wills to manifest the power of Jesus, and also to reveal to us His Fatherly love; to exercise and to confirm our faith, and to make us prove the power of redemption in the body as well as in the soul. Oh, let us believe in the name of Jesus!

Wherever the Spirit acts with power, there He works divine healings. If divine healing is seen but rarely in our day, we can attribute it to the unbelief of worldlings and the want of zeal among believers. Let us pray earnestly for the Holy Spirit, let us place ourselves unreservedly under His direction, and let us seek to be firm in our faith in the name of Jesus, whether for preaching salvation or for the work of healing.

A prayer for healing

Dear heavenly Father, grant us healing today as in the days of Pentecost, so that we may glorify the name of Jesus. It is sad to see how little the power of His name is recognized today, how little it is the end of preaching and of prayer. Grant us the treasures of divine grace, of which Christians deprive themselves by their lack of faith and zeal, which are hidden in the name of Jesus. Awaken our consciences, and bring our hearts to obedience. We know, oh God, that you are ready to manifest the all-powerful healing of Your Son, and to do it in a striking way in body as well as in soul. Let us believe it for ourselves, let us believe it for others, for the circle of believers around us, and also for the Church in the whole world. Let us ask great things in Jesus’ name, counting on His promise, and we shall see You still do wonders by the name of Your holy Son.

I thank you, my Lord Jesus, that You are both the Savior of my soul and the healer of my body. Amen.

All things are ordained in heaven

gods will or my will

“For promotion and exaltation comes not from the east or the west, nor from the south. It is God alone who judges; he decides who will rise and who will fall.” – Psalm 75:6-7

Do you wish to succeed in life? Don’t boast about your own merits and future plans. It is God who ultimately decides. He alone can lift you up or bring you down.

Unless it is God’s will, the best-laid goals and strategies will come to nothing. The Bible tells us to pray about everything, acknowledge Him in all our ways, and commit all into God’s hands. If our concepts and preparations are unsuccessful, rest assured that they were never meant to be. Trusting God means that He has to have the last word in whatever we do, because He knows what is best for us.

How arrogant and contriving it is for us to leave God out of our plans! How vain it is to look for any thing good to turn out without God’s blessing and guidance!

“Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that. As it is, you boast in your arrogant schemes. All such boasting is evil.” – James 4:14-16

Matthew Henry writes, “Our times are not in our own hands, but at the disposal of God. Our heads may be filled with cares and contrivances for ourselves, or our families, or our friends; but Providence often throws our plans into confusion. All we design, and all we do, should be with submissive dependence on God. It is foolish, and it is hurtful, to boast of worldly things and aspiring projects; it will bring great disappointment, and will prove destruction in the end.”

We can rest assured that God loves us and wants to bestow the best gifts.

But not everything we contrive is the right course of action. We must ask ourselves, “Is this just a good idea, or is it a God idea?” Every good and perfect gift, blessing, and promotion comes from above, from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning (James 1:17).

Do you want to be exalted and successful in whatever you do? Learn to humble yourself and pray as Jesus prayed, “Father, not my will, but your will be done.”

There is a God, and a divine plan for us, and things happen not by chance. Men forget that all things are ordained in heaven. The Lord reigns evermore. He puts down one, and sets up another. He is at work behind the scene of our lives. The foolish dream that He is not, but He is near even now. Pray and patiently wait for things to come to pass, not in our own timing, but in His.

Happy International Woman’s Day

Pro-Life is Pro-Woman

It has been said — politically and culturally — that for one to be pro-woman one must be pro-choice. But nothing could be further from the truth. The truth is that life is an empowering choice for women and their developing babies. Abortion harms women, their babies, and spreads its negative effects on our society in so many ways.

Babies are a gift from God and abortion takes that gift away. A true feminist would not willingly kill other female (nor male) unborn babies.

Planned Parenthood Abortions To Cease

Thanks to your prayers on behalf of the unborn, the organization, Planned Parenthood, is being stripped of state funding by the Trump administration until they cease all abortion services. However, the President has offered to grant the company federal funding as long as they only conduct non-abortive medical services.

In a recent New York Times statement, President Donald Trump told reporters, “I am pro-life…Polling shows the majority of Americans oppose public funding for abortion, even those who identify as pro-choice. There is an opportunity for organizations to continue the important work they do in support of women’s health, while not providing abortion services.”

Evangelical leader, Rev. Franklin Graham had this to say, “Good for President Donald J. Trump! I hope Planned Parenthood will take him up on his offer to provide funding if they will stop doing abortions.” Franklin continued “A recent report said that 94% of Planned Parenthood’s ‘pregnancy services’ were abortions in 2014-2015. That same year Planned Parenthood performed over 320,000 abortions—that’s one every 98 seconds!”

God Can Clean Up Your Mess

And the winner is...you!

And the winner is…you!

Being confident of this, that He [God himself] who began a good work in you, will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 1:6

“He will keep you firm to the very end, so that you will be free from all blame on the day when our Lord Jesus Christ returns.” – 1 Corinthians 1:8

Both the Old and the New Testament teach that election and salvation is a sovereign work of God’s grace. God is the One who chooses us, God is the One who gives us faith to believe, God is the one who does the work of regeneration, and it is God who preserves us to the very end of our lives. True Christians patiently look forward to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and they will trust in His promises until they are fulfilled. Those that have this hope will be blameless in the day of Christ, made so by the rich and free grace of God.

Christians are distinguished from the profane and the atheists, that they have been chosen of God, and they have chosen to follow God.

Since God chose us from the foundations of the world, He didn’t wait for us to “clean up our act,” so to speak. He knew, in advance, what a mess we would make of our lives in many cases. Yet, God overlooked our sinful condition before coming to Christ foreknowing what a glorious transformation we would make one day. He also saw all sinful blunders we would commit – even after coming to Christ – as part of the process of transformation. Praise be to God that our Heavenly Father, continues to love us and patiently work with us despite ourselves, and the many, many times we fall short of perfection.

Why? Because He foreknew that we would eventually experience complete regeration and Christ-likeness. He keeps His eye on the big picture. He saw ahead of time, the beautiful masterpiece our lives would turn out to be.

Because He is the author of our book, He knows exactly how our story will end. He has already written the last chapter and it is thrilling! Surprisingly, it does have a happy ending. He has promised it will be a best seller among the saints and angels in heaven.

I can rest assured of my salvation.

“We love Him, because He first loved us..” – 1 John 4:19

I can rest in the assurance that God doesn’t make mistakes. Because our Heavenly Father chose us and loved us before we were able to love Him back, He saw the winner in us, not the loser.

I’m also glad that He gave me a free will. He gave me the ability to choose who I want to spend eternity with. I’m glad that my Heavenly Father didn’t make that choice for me; He wants us to choose Him of our own volition. He wants children that voluntarily love Him and want to be with Him in heaven. He does not want slaves who involuntarily give Him lip service. Everyone in heaven, and throughout eternity, will be present with God because they voluntarily chose to be there.

But right now, I have to admit, that sometimes my life is still a little messy. I’m not happy about it; I wish I could do better. I want to live in a manner that is pleasing to my Heavenly Father and make Him proud of me. But regardless of how messy it becomes at times, I’m not anxious about my eternal future. I am confident that despite the temporal setbacks, I am slowly being transformed into the image of Christ – holy and blameless. The inward man is being renewed day-by-day (2 Corinthians 4:16).

Beloved, we are the sons and daughters of God, and it does not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that when Christ shall appear again, we shall be like Him. Praise be to God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ who has blessed us in heavenly places with all spiritual blessings.

Let us always remember that no matter how messy it’s been in the past, we have a glorious future ahead of us!
