You Are Set Apart

I confess I am reading Leviticus in the Old Testament and finding it difficult wondering; how did they keep all the instructions and laws?

I also wondered were they afraid all the time of messing up and not being able to keep them? They did.
That is why the Book of Leviticus deals with their “right Living”, sacrificing for their sins, abiding by the laws and carrying them out, to be a holy nation set apart. Testing was their everyday challenge. Were they going to listen to God or do what they wanted?

Let’s fast forward to Jesus….
In his patience and love tells the Jewish people “I have not come to abolish the law but to fulfill it.” (Matthew 5:17) Jesus said He was the Messiah, many received Him with their whole heart- all were accepted Jews and Gentiles. Many devout Jewish leaders didn’t believe Him and their hard hearts turned away, the message fell on deaf ears. They were praying for a Messiah to save them from Roman rule, but in truth Jesus came to lead them to Himself for eternal life. Through Jesus the laws that kept them shackled could now be broken, but they could not hear or believe it, and they scrambled in stress to keep their laws in tact.

Isaiah 11:1-3. The Branch From Jesse           (Matthew 1:6 for lineage)
 
A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse;
    from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.

The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him—
    the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding,
    the Spirit of counsel and of might,
    the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord—

and he will delight in the fear of the Lord.
He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes,
    or decide by what he hears with his ears;

I understand Leviticus it to be God’s instructions of holiness, sacrifices, worship & health, those instructions were instrumental to leading and guiding the Israelites as a holy people, setting them apart to follow God and abide by all his laws.

Why Are you set apart?

You were chosen by God to be a separate people when you came to Christ, there was a new life coming towards you, before Christ you were part of the world and now because of your faith in knowing that Jesus is Lord has saved you and takes you not physically out of the world but spiritually gives you a new life one that isn’t shackled to the earth, but is free to love and know that you have been set free by the power of His mighty blood.

Brethren don’t give up hope, it is for this time you have come into the world , maybe you don’t understand why but God has this great plan to show you how His mighty power works, JUST WATCH!

Foundations built on God

The United States of America was built on the foundation of God Our Father and the Bible in which His word is planted in our hearts. Sadly, in this country that has not been honored, instead people put their faith in what they own, have or accumulate in money.

There is a hurricane brewing in the Atlantic Ocean which will hit landfall tonight and people think it’s mother nature, but we know who is behind this! The Wrath of God. Who now can say there is no God? Check the Bible, His hand is always in the circumstances, when sin runs out of control, when people turn their heads from God they will have to know who is to blame, themselves for their wrong doing. Like Sodom and Gomorrah He will do away with whomever He decides, whenever He decides. So I say to you who may stumble upon this blog post, repent and ask God to forgive your sins. You can be forgiven just for the asking, that is why Jesus bled and died for you, don’t forget this! Don’t forget who can really save you!

When the Son of Man Comes

When the son of Man comes it will be a day of glory, all the followers of Christ shall see Hi glorified on the clouds. But do not be worried about when he comes but that you wait for Him in eagerness and humbleness, so be watchful – He is right at the door.

Don’t be boastful and arrogant about His coming, but be gentle and eager to share your life with others. As for Christ, He shall be forever in His Kingdom and we who love Him with all our might shall live with Him there forever. OMEN… SHALOM

Gods Wrath

The planet is in an uproar.

Gods wrath is upon us now. If we are to be humble unto Him we must ask for forgiveness of our sins and prepare ourselves for what may happen in the future days. Our abundance does not fit into the picture of the hereafter but all that follow the Lord will be saved from ultimate destruction of their soul. But if we hold onto this life with all we have, we will surely lose it for the day of the Lord is at hand. Don’t be afraid to reach out and pray at any given moment because He hears all you ask Him for. But in humbleness remember that all is seen by Him and nothing is hidden, rebuke false teachers and look only to Jesus for whatever your needs are. In humbleness and prayer AMEN!!
