The Everlasting King!

The Child of Bethlehem: The Everlasting King Part 3 Biblical Meditation, To read Luke 1:26-33. John 19:17-22.

Luke 1:35 And He shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of His Kingdom there shall be no end.

The inscription above the cross relays the same message as the proclamation of the Birth of Christ. “Jesus is the King of the “Jews””!
One message on the cross is inscribed by Pilate; words of scorn. The other message at the time of the Birth of Jesus is proclaimed by the angel Gabriel; Saviour which is Christ the Lord, words of comfort and salvation. In both messages, God is pointing to His Child the Messianic King Who shall sit on the throne of David.

When we look at the inscription of Pilate in depth we must believe the words of Gabriel as did Mary. Faith only shows the glory of the Child of Bethlehem. The non-spiritual eye cannot see the royalty of the Child in the manger nor the Man of Sorrow on the cross.

Faith discerns the still hidden glory. The Messias, the Prince of Peace shall reveal the hidden glory, Who is promised to Israel, Abraham’s seed in the ancient days. This promise is fulfilled in Bethlehem where the Saviour comes into the world. A world that is full of guilt and shame. The Ruler over Israel shall be of the Root of David.

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Micah 5:2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

The Messias shall come as the Everlasting King of Righteousness. In the fullness of time, God’s Son was brought forth of a woman from the tribe of Judah. He shall rule in Zion, the city of David.

Revelation 5_5KJB.png

The Messias shall come as the Everlasting King and Redeemer, at His Birth worshiped by the three wise men from the far East. “Jesus King of the “Jews”” * (see footnote and link) the words Pilate wrote. But Christ Jesus shall return and will be the Everlasting King to all kindreds, people, and nations. He shall sit on the throne of David.

The inscription on the cross was written in three languages. The little town of Bethlehem was to be known throughout the world. Meanwhile, the glory of the Kingdom remained hidden. He walked among us but remained incognito. His Life between the manger and the cross was without any glory and splendor. The way through this world went deep and caused loneliness and disruption. In the end, the mocking words remained on the cross.

The inscription indeed remained. It could not be changed. What Pilate had written, he had written according to God’s instruction, What the angel Gabriel proclaimed was spoken by God. That’s why Pilate only could acknowledge in writing what the messenger announced and foretold. The Lord GOD will give Him the throne of David and the Anointed shall be King over the House of Jacob forever.

He was promised and expected ages ahead of time. Angels sang to his glory. The prophets prophesied, about Him with delight. The Everlasting King would come in righteousness. His glorious rule was proclaimed in powerful words. And to His Kingdom shall be no end.

How blessed for Mary. The angel Gabriel spoke to her familiar words. Didn’t David, the man after God’s heart, already have the promise that his kingdom would be an Everlasting Kingdom?

This promise derived from David’s Kingdom is the deep and rich fulfillment in Him. The throne of David shall have more than earthly splendor. The eternal contours shall give their brilliance worldwide. The angels from heaven shall sing peace on earth. The LORD shall judge in righteousness. The Anointed shall heal the brokenhearted, and proclaim liberty to them that are bruised. To the poor, He will preach salvation. He shall rule with justice, wisdom and, meekness.

The Kingdom of Heaven, to all nations according to the promise given to Abraham and ordained by the Father of Christ. A wonderful Kingdom. For it is the Kingdom of the Son of God. A Kingdom full of God’s Love!
The Child of Bethlehem, Jesus Christ, is Precious in the eyes the of Father, has also become precious in the eyes of His children.

The Israelites and all nations are looking forward to the re-building of the Kingdom of Heaven of the Everlasting King!

  • In the Old Testament, the word “Jew” ought to be read as Judahite which were the Israelites of the tribe of Judah.
  • In the New Testament, the word “Jew” ought to be read as Judean which were the Israelites also of the tribe of Judah and they were living in the Roman province of Judea.

Remember The LORD Thy God

Followers, the best wishes for a good and healthy New Year.

A wonderful and all-embracing promise for this first day of the New Year in Joshua 1:9.

Joshua 1_9KJB.png

The Old Year has passed with its dark days, its fearful hours having its sorrows and disappointments. The year of the corona-virus and its outbreak that started in China the year before. The coronavirus that caused the passing away of loved ones and friends.

Today, we are heading into an unknown future. Just like Joshua, who had to lead the Hebrew people into Canaan Land. The walls barricading Jericho were high, and the gates were closed. He did not know what he was up against.

“Be not afraid the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest”. In Jesus Christ, this LORD thy God is our LORD thy God.

The eternal faithfulness will remain with God’s children beyond the shadow of a doubt. As Joshua led the Hebrew people into Canaan Land despite the barricading walls. So will Jesus Christ lead us into the Heavenly Canaan Land. The Heavenly Canaan Land where the many mansions of the Father are.

All the children of the Most High can enter this New Year unknown to us with the All-Knowing God. Verily, not one of the words will be lost God once spoke to Joshua. Let us learn to wait for the Saviour.

The Waiting on Jesus Christ is more than worth it to be in the everlasting Presence of the Saviour. Either by God taking His children Home or with the Second Coming of the LORD.

The moment the soul leaves the body it is too late to reconsider. When we change the temporary for eternity the time has stopped running. When we are not saved we are living in borrowed time.

Where will the non-believers be? Where will the “Christians” be with their corrupt bible versions? Revelation 20:14-15

Jesus Christ, The Saviour, Do you know Him?

Jesus Christ, The Only Way To Salvation!

God’s Judgment as a Remembrance.

In several parts of the world, the Covid-19 is popping up again. The contamination is increasing. The number of people that catch the coronavirus is rising. People are frightened. Governments again did put stricter rules and measures into place to suppress the virus. New lockdowns for cafes and restaurants will be at least for the coming four weeks. Face masks are mandatory in grocery stores, shops, and other public buildings. Regular medical care in hospitals again is put on the back burner.

“Together we can do it. When vaccinations become available we will have the coronavirus under control”.

The world has not gone mad. No, it is the humanity in the world that has gone mad. The apostasy of the gay- parades, the carnivals, the drugs and alcohol, the discos, the idolatry, the same gender marriages, the transgenders, and many other wicked matters in life that have the power over the majority. The power of familiar spirits.

But aren’t we forgetting that the Almighty God, the Creator of Heaven and Earth has everything under His control? Did it ever occur to us that God not only allows the corona pandemic to happen? But that HE has caused the pandemic to happen. As a warning, a warning to take a step back and to come to our senses?

 2Samuel 24:15  So the LORD sent a pestilence upon Israel from the morning even to the time appointed: and there died of the people from Dan even to Beer–sheba seventy thousand men.

Ezekiel 28:23 For I will send into her pestilence, and blood into her streets; and the wounded shall be judged in the midst of her by the sword upon her on every side; and they shall know that I am the LORD.

2Chronicles 21:14 Behold, with a great plague will the LORD smite thy people, and thy children, and thy wives, and all thy goods:

Pandemics have happened before, We think about the Spanish flu of 1918/ 1919. The virus has been roaming around until the late fifties of the last century. And still nobody knows exactly how it all started.

Jude 1:5-7 The Apostle Jude is writing in his epistle to believers and he is reminding them, the life of sin they once lived. They also were disobedient to God.

  • 5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. 
  •  6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. 
  • 7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

In verse 5 Jude is referring to the story of Numbers 13.

  • The Israelites did not believe God that they could enter the Land flowing of milk and honey. Ten spies said they could not enter the Promised Land. (Numbers 13:31, 32)
  • Caleb said they could enter the Promised Land. (Numbers 13:30)
  • Unbelief versus belief. Of all the Hebrew people who left Egypt, only Joshua and Caleb entered the Promised Land.
  • In Numbers 14:20 God was going the smite the people with pestilence.
  • In verse 21 Moses is pleading with God. Moses in this event is a representation of Christ as a mediator.

In verse 6 Jude is referring to the fallen angels, the sons of God. Part of the angels followed satan and left their first estate.

  • 2Peter 2:4. For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment.

In verse 7 Jude is referring to the wicked people in Sodom and Gomorrah. All the people died, except for Lot and his family. God consumed the cities with fire and brimstone.

  •  Genesis 19:23-25  The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar. 
  • 24 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; 
  • 25 And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.
  • The story is in Genesis 19.

When God through His grace pulled you away from a false religion don’t take a part of that belief or anything tangible with you. Leave everything behind. It is a representation of Lot’s wife looking back. Genesis 19:26. Yes, also that rosary chain that you think is so pretty. It will destroy your soul. That cross is empty, the sin is paid for with the Blood of the Saviour. Jesus Christ is now at the Right Hand of the Father.

That modern bible version, get rid of that book. The dirt of God’s adversary is smeared all over the pure Word of God. And it is heavy poison to the soul.

God does everything by the Book. What happened in Biblical times also applies to us in the present time and for the time to come.

The Holy Ghost is pointing us to God’s Word. The Holy Ghost is pointing us to an angry God and His judgments. upon this earth. There are several clear examples in the Bible. For now, all His judgments are to warn us.

The Holy Ghost is reminding us of Jesus Christ the only Redeemer. Jesus Christ Who took our sin upon Him, The fierce anger of the Father, like a fire, it all came down upon the Saviour. The Saviour consumed the wrath of God. All our sins were consumed by the Saviour. It was the only way to make us free from sin and to stand justified before the Holy God.

The true Bible believer, the believer in Christ recognizes these judgments. The non-believers, those who mock God do not recognize the judgments because they don’t understand God. They don’t know Who the Almighty God is and what He stands for. That is because they don’t have the Holy Spirit dwelling within. HE is the Spirit of Truth.

The non-believers pushed God to the very edge of society. The fools don’t want the Most High to reign over them. They don’t want God’s grace by His Only Begotten Son Jesus Christ. They want no salvation.

God’s judgments are terrible and beyond words. God’s grace is a joy beyond measure.

Flee, oh flee to the foot of the cross, the cross of Golgotha. Jesus Christ paid for our sin with the shedding of His precious Blood and regained the power over the grave with His death.

Ask on the foot of the cross for the forgiveness of sin and bring anyone with you who also needs salvation. God will reject no one. You shall be fully protected.

Psalms 91:3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

Psalms 91:10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

Psalms 91_4KJB.png

Psalms 91:4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

The I Am That I Am came and HE became one of us.

The following are the words of a dear friend of mine and a brother IN Christ JoshFX.

John 1_29KJB.png

Once we are Born Again, and are then ‘IN‘ Christ Jesus, ALL our prayers, and intersession between us here on Earth, and The Throne Room of The Almighty, where Christ sits, at the Right Hand of The Father, interceding on our behalf…are presented in the way, and manner, in which we are expected to communicate our needs. This is one of the reasons that Believers close their Prayer requests with, “In The Name of Jesus….”

We have to always keep in mind, that JESUS is now our ALL…. and our….EVERYTHING….

  • HE is now our Healer.
  • HE is now our Provider.
  • HE is now our High Priest.
  • HE is not just our Saviour, but also…our LORD.
  • In HIM is found, for The Believer, The Fullness of The Godhead. ‘HE‘ is The Way, The Life, and The TRUTH.
John 14_6KJB.png

I rejoice ‘IN‘ my Saviour every day….and call out loud…

 Thank YOU Jesus, for YOUR Atoning Blood. Amen.

Jesus Christ, The Only Way tho Salvation

Jesus Christ, the Only Way to Salvation!

WHY LORD JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY WAY TO SALVATION?

–Romans 3:10-12 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: 11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.”  12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

WHY DO WE NEED SALVATION?

–Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

HOW DOES GOD PROVIDE SALVATION?

–Romans 5:8 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

HOW DO WE RECEIVE SALVATION?

Romans 10:9,10  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. —Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

THE RESULT OF SALVATION!

Romans 8:1  There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. —Romans 8:38,39 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. —Romans 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

THE HOLY SPIRIT.

2Corinthians 1:21,22 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; 22 Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

Ephesians 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

Psalms 34_8KJB.png

We can not point people to Christ without quoting Scripture. We only can be saved by the incorruptible Word of God. When the seed is corrupt, the salvation is corrupt. Without the Bible, no one can turn to Christ but they only end up with an ideology

  • 2Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
  • 1John 1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;

Lord Jesus Christ is the God of the Old Testament is the I AM, THAT I AM. Lord Jesus Christ is the Same Person Who fulfilled the Law, the Ten Commandments, He once gave to Moses on Mount Sinai. Lord Jesus Christ while among us is fully God and fully Man. “I am the LORD that is my name” (Isaiah 42:8)

O wonderful Mystery of God beyond words!
