These Signs Will Follow

signs-will-follow

15 And He said unto them, Go you into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature.

16 He that believes and is baptized (Baptism into Jesus’ Death, not water as some claim, Romans 6:3-4) shall be saved; but he that believes not shall be damned.

17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In My Name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, He was received up into Heaven, and sat on the Right Hand of God.

20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and CONFIRMING THE WORD with signs following. Amen.” Mark 16:15-20 (emphasis added).

Sadly, many will travel hundreds of miles to see signs and lying wonders because they have pleasure in such unrighteousness.   The Pharisees and Sadducees required a sign and Jesus called them a wicked generation (Matthew 16:4).

Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the Truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the Truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12

Modern day pharisees and sadducees come cloaked as “ministers of righteousness” (2 Corinthians 11:13-15) to the unlearned and seduce those who give heed to signs and lying wonders.  Because they do not love nor seek the Truth, God has sent them a strong delusion and they have indeed believed a lie.

31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on Him, If you continue in My Word, then are you My Disciples indeed; 32 And you shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free.” John 8:31-32

Miracles, signs and wonders which are of God will FOLLOW those who go out to all the world and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Him crucified and continue in His Word.  They will CONFIRM God’s Word, not distract from His Word. Those who preach the Cross of Christ to a lost and dying world will see broken hearts healed and satan’s captives set at liberty because those who actually love the Truth, the Truth will set them free…but those who do not will believe a lie.

By lifting JESUS up to the people as the Source and His Cross the means by which whosoever will believe shall be healed, people shall be healed.  When Jesus Christ, Who He is and what He has done, is lifted up to a lost and dying world as the Savior of their soul, the Holy Spirit will draw the hungry heart and bear witness to their spirit.

The convicting power of the Holy Spirit under the anointing of a God called preacher lays utter waste the vanities of man’s manipulation to “draw” the sinner.  Too many preachers, called of their mamas, vainly attempt to assume the ministry of the Holy Spirit by seeking to please men and not God.  The Holy Spirit is commissioned by God to draw the lost when Jesus is lifted up (John 12:32), not man’s ideas which are nothing more than vain philosophies to increase attendance with no attention given to the eternal souls of men.

But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His Righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33

If it is not HIS Righteousness imputed to us by Grace through faith, it is unrighteousness.  Fight the good fight of faith…faith in the power of God unto us who are saved; faith in Jesus Christ and Him crucified.  Be determined to know nothing else among you.

Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.” Galatians 5:1

Beware of Vain Philosophies

49f510575d796d284a570e7f9202ef0f

17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the Gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the Cross of Christ should be made of none effect.

18 For the preaching of the Cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:17-18

The “Message of the Cross” which so many refer to is NOT the following:

  • 40 days of purpose PLUS the Cross of Christ
  • 21 days of fasting PLUS the Cross of Christ
  • secret power of speaking God’s word PLUS the Cross of Christ
  • harbingers, shemitahs and blood moons PLUS the Cross of Christ
  • prayer shawls and yamakas PLUS the Cross of Christ
  • hail Mary’s and rosarys PLUS the Cross of Christ

All of these philosophies of men being taught from the pulpits as doctrine is vanity.  They are the leaven which leavens the whole lump because they corrupt the Truth and seduce man into placing their faith in what they have done (fasting 21 days, hail marys, etc.) or lying signs and wonders (harbingers, shemitahs, oil secreting Bibles, etc.).   This little bit of leaven is that which leads to the pride and self righteousness which comes before the fall…the destruction of one’s faith which is satan’s purpose.

This people draw nigh unto Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips; but their heart is far from Me. But in vain they do worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” Matthew 15:8-9

For the preacher to wave in front of their congregation the silliness of such commandments and preaching them as doctrine is an abomination unto God Who gave His only begotten Son in order to reconcile us to Himself and our faith in Him, Jesus Christ, and what HE has done on Calvary’s Cross, is ALL that is required of man to be reconciled unto God.  With our faith placed in the Cross of Christ, the Holy Spirit is commissioned to superintend the work of God in our heart and lives.  Precept upon precept and line upon line, old things pass away and all things become new as we become a new creature IN Christ Jesus.  By partaking in all of the other commandments of men in order to be closer to God, we deem the Cross of Christ as insufficient.  Our consecration to the Word of God is morphed into ambition and our faithfulness into greed. God forbid no!!   These wisdom of words being given as doctrine makes the Cross of Christ of no effect.

As you have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk you in Him: Rooted and built up in Him, and stablished in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” Colossians 2:6-8

Beware…lest any man spoil you through vain philosophy.  The power of God is the Cross of Christ plus NOTHING.

Like a Flint

fullsizeoutput_89128 And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that He (Jesus) had answered them well, asked Him, Which is the first Commandment of all?

29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the Commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:

30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength: this is the First Commandment.

31 And the second is like, namely this, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is none other Commandment greater than these.

32 And the scribe said unto Him, Well, Master, You have said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but He:

33 And to love Him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.

34 And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, He said unto him, you are not far from the Kingdom of God. And no man after that does ask Him any question.” Mark 12:28-34

The Scribes who had a great intellectual knowledge of the Scripture were not far from the Kingdom of God but yet they were still not there.  Irregardless of the religious ceremonies and man made traditions, the spiritual condition of many have left them short of the Kingdom of God.  There is no oil in their lanterns.  They have indeed prophesied, cast out devils and did many wonderful works in the Name of Jesus, yet He does not know them (Matthew 7:21-23).  Their alms have not earned them their way into the Kingdom of God.  They had an intellectual knowledge of the Word of God but no fear of God.

13 Enter you in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads unto life, and few there be that find it.”  Matthew 7:13-14

Jesus came to die on Calvary’s Cross to lead us through the narrow way…the way which leads unto life.

For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for My sake shall find it.” Matthew 16:25

Jesus is the Door by which all who enter the Kingdom of God shall enter.

I am the Door: by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” John 10:9

No one comes unto the Father but by Jesus Christ.  It is because of  Who He is and what He has done for whosoever will believe that affords us this ability.  Buddha, Mohammed or Mary for that matter have no ability to reconcile us unto God.  Today Buddha and Mohammed are in hell because of their unbelief.  Praise be to God, Mary herself is in Heaven because she too claimed Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior…but the fact remains, Mary cannot reconcile us to God.  She too was a sinner in need of her Savior (Luke 1:46-47). Praying to her or other dead Saints in necromancy which God declares is an abomination (Deuteronomy 18:10-12).  Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life and no man comes unto God but by Him; not because this writer says so but God Himself has declared:

Jesus said unto him, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man comes unto the Father, but by Me.” John 14:6

Set your face like a flint and not be ashamed. Be DETERMINED to know nothing else among you save Jesus Christ and Him crucified.  God the Holy Spirit will guide you, precept upon precept and line upon line, through the narrow way unto the Kingdom of God where we will one day behold, face to face, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

GLORY!!  GLORY!! GLORY!!

“For the Lord God will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.”  Isaiah 50:7

One Thing We Lack

the-one-thing21 Then Jesus beholding him (the rich, young ruler) loved him, and said unto him, One thing you lack: go your way, sell whatsoever you have, and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in Heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow Me.

22 And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.

23 And Jesus looked round about, and said unto His Disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the Kingdom of God!

24 And the Disciples were astonished at His Words. But Jesus answered again, and said unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the Kingdom of God!

25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of God.” Mark 10:21-25

It is not sinful to have money.  The problem is most who have riches trust in them for their best life now instead of the Cross of Christ for life and life more abundantly.  Many professing Believers believe in the Cross of Christ for their Salvation but trust in their abilities, intellect, talents, etc. to supply all of their needs according to their riches.  We are not slothful.  Our work, whatever it may be, is unto the Lord and we may or may not have large bank accounts.  The point is, our faith is not in that which we have but in He from whence it came…the Cross of Christ.

But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in Glory by Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19

It is hard for those who have or have once had riches to forsake it’s proposed ability to supply our supposed needs. The fact of the matter is, those earthly riches which are gained according to worldly means have absolutely zero to do with the Kingdom of God.  The Cross of Christ was a place of great suffering for Jesus but for us it is a place of great blessing.  In order for the Believer to follow Jesus, we must pick up our cross which are the blessings afforded us by Jesus on Calvary’s Cross and deny ourselves.  We must deny our abilities to supply our needs according to our riches and look unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith.

The one thing the rich, young ruler lacked was the denial of himself; his abilities, intellect, talents, etc. to supply his needs.  The rich, young ruler’s faith was in his abilities as the source and his riches as the means of all good things he had gained in this life and sadly he was unwilling to forsake them.

The Believer’s faith placed in the Cross of Christ affords them the blessings of God as they follow Jesus.  This is our cross we must bear; the denial of self and contentment with God’s blessings afforded us by the Cross of Christ.  It is not a burden but a blessing.  To complain and murmur about what the Lord has given us is an abomination in the eyes of God for it is His Son’s death that affords us these blessings.  To complain about our circumstances is evidence of where our riches are laid up.  Too many stay busy rebuking the place the Lord has brought us and never understand what He is authoring and finishing in our hearts.

The hard part, the part most do not understand, is the denying of one’s self.  To be frank and honest, “one’s self” is where our faith is placed up until our Salvation.  After our Salvation, we quickly turn back to ourselves in order to gain the abundant life God has promised which is wrong. We fight the good fight of faith DAILY.  That fight of faith is daily denying ourselves and maintaining faith in the Cross of Christ for God to supply all of our needs according to HIS riches in Glory by Christ Jesus.  The Holy Spirit does not superintend the work of God in our lives when our faith is placed in our riches and abilities.

This abundant life isn’t found in earthly riches but in peace beyond all understanding, joy unspeakable and full of glory…in spite of the unpleasant circumstances we may be placed in.

And He said to them all, If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.” Luke 9:23

The one thing we often lack is the denial of self.  Prayerfully consider.

Go and Tell

Go and tell

35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for My sake and the Gospel’s, the same shall save it.

36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” Mark 8:35-37

I am saddened by the utter disregard of the condition of one’s eternal soul by many professing Christians.  Daily I see, as I’m sure all of you see as well, unbelievers and their children attempting in vain to save their own lives. The devil whispers his lies in their ears daily and they believe him.

We as Believers  must understand that the lost are not lost because they reject Jesus but they reject Jesus because they are lost.  Spiritually they are dead and not alive unto Jesus.  The lost is not able to partake in God’s Divine Nature (2 Peter 1:4).  They have not escaped the corruption of this world because they have not yet decided to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.  Unbelievers have not come to the understanding that they are in fact a sinner in need of a Savior and that the atoning work of Jesus Christ on Calvary’s Cross is the ONLY way in which they can truly be Saved.

How we react to these lost souls, trying in vain to save their own lives, could determine  how they will one day respond to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  “We” are what they view/perceive as Christians…which of course we are.  Does our action harden their heart or soften?  Are we prideful or are we meek? Are we long-suffering or impatient?  The lost are watching us as we respond to others.  Are we a respecter of persons?  Religion will have us toiling in the world vainly trying to save the world ourselves.  The Church is commissioned to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Him crucified which will change the hearts of the lost and they themselves will then understand that whosoever will save his life shall lose it, but whosoever shall lose his life for Christ’s sake, shall save it.   They too will be buried with Christ Jesus and resurrected into newness of life.

Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into His Death?

Therefore we are buried with Him by Baptism into Death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” Romans 6:3-4

It matters not their lot in this life.  Jesus Christ came to save whosoever will believe.  If we are not moved to compassion for the condition of their eternal soul and would condemn them to hell ourselves if given the opportunity, our hearts are defiled with bitterness, anger and hate and we need to get on our face ourselves before the Lord.

Quite simply, the lost cannot overcome the powers of darkness that has encased them until they turn to the Cross of Christ for their Salvation and Sanctification.  If they could defeat these principalities and powers on their own, the Cross of Christ was in vain. God forbid no!  Encouraging them with a little humanistic psychology, draped in Scripture with a pat on the back and a bottle of water will not break the power of sin’s dominion which has them bound because they are under the law of sin and death.

 “For the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the Law of Sin and Death.” Romans 8:2

The only law greater than the Law of Sin and Death is the Law of the Spirit of Life IN Christ Jesus.  The Holy Spirit is not commissioned to superintend the work of God in the Believer’s life when our faith is placed vain philosophies and sincere intentions.  The lost cannot overcome this law by means of their intellect, abilities or self efforts…and neither can the Believer by the way.  Many professing Christians believe in the Cross of Christ for Salvation but follow the same methods as the lost for their Sanctification.  The only difference is now these methods are draped in Scripture to deceive the very elect.

Consider your witness before the lost.  When the gates of hell close on one’s eternal soul, there are no second chances.  Sorry my Catholic friends.  Will they wonder why…why you didn’t tell them of this blessed hope we have in our Lord Jesus Christ?  Will they spend eternity wondering why you didn’t tell them it would profit them nothing to gain the whole world and still lose their eternal soul to a devil’s hell? Go tell.  Tell them Jesus loves them.

If you want to see a move of God, go and tell the people the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Him crucified.  Contend for the faith.

Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things you have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the Gospel is preached.” Luke 7:22

Out of the Heart of Man

heart-mouth

18 And He (Jesus) said unto them (His Disciples), Are you so without understanding also? Do you not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without enters into the man, it cannot defile him; 19 Because it enters not into his heart, but into the belly, and goes out into the draught, purging all meats?

20 And He said, That which comes out of the man, that defiles the man.

21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, 22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: 23 All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.” Mark 7:18-23

Out of the mouth flows the abundance of the heart.  Holiness does not sanctify evil, it dispels evil.  While evil, on the other hand, defiles that which is holy.  Pride and foolishness is the fruit of a defiled heart.  No matter one’s abilities, intellect or earthly wisdom (which is devilish by the way [James 3:15]), a defile heart cannot produce fruit unto God.

Many professing Christians have the outside of their cups nicely polished but from the inside comes evil thoughts, covetousness and pride. The inside of their cup is filthy and defiled.  Their incantations have failed them, and fail them they must, and they are left wanting.

28 Come unto Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

29 Take My Yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest unto your souls.

30 For My Yoke is easy, and My burden is light.”  Matthew 11:28-30

When we recognize the abundance of our heart is full of death and our lying to ourselves and unto God in the Name of Jesus have failed, Jesus will be standing at the door knocking.  Those Who follow Him, will find rest unto their souls.  Learning of Him, Who He is and what He has done to break the power of sin for the broken Believer, dispels the defiled parts and causes a praise to be constantly on our lips.  Jesus Christ is our strong tower which we run into and are safe.  Without Him, we cannot resist the devil and the devil will not flee.  It is the devil’s wish to defile.  Satan comes to kill, steal and destroy but Jesus gives us life and life more abundantly (John 10:10).

Recognize the defiled parts.  Learn of Jesus Christ and Him crucified.  Be determined to know nothing else among you.  He will give you the rest in which your soul seeks.  Joy unspeakable and peace beyond all understanding is found in Him…He is our strong tower.

The Name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous run into it, and is safe.” Proverbs 18:10

Complaining Witnesses

images31 But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we.
 
32 And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eats up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature.
 
33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.” Numbers 13:31-33
Death and life are in the power of the tongue. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. What is coming out of your mouth reveals the condition of your heart. Israel’s murmuring slandered the land God had promised them.
Consider your witness. What does it say about God’s promises to each and every Believer? Out of the abundance of your heart, does your mouth slander God’s promises with complaining and murmuring? A Child of God is allowed in the circumstances they are in by God to build and strengthen their faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on Calvary’s Cross.
Looking unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith; Who for the joy that was set before Him endured the Cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the Right Hand of the Throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2
Consider your witness. Death and life are in the power of the tongue to slander that which the Lord has promised or glorify the Promises of God.

Stand Still and See

Stand still

Certain destruction awaits those who attempt to defeat satan in their own strength and this is exactly what most religious teach.  Spiritual warfare ministries specialize in such teachings.  The methods and mantras of the super spiritual are given to the “unlearned” in order to overcome sin. Family curses, soul ties and other “curses”, which were in fact broken the day of the believing sinners Salvation, all have a specific incantation designed to break the curse.  This is nothing more than an attempt of “white” witchcraft given in order to manipulate the spirit world of righteousness and has absolutely nothing to do with faith in the Cross of Christ for dominion over sin.

For sin shall not have dominion over you: for you are not under the Law, but under Grace.” Romans 6:14

These incantations, often called “prayers”, become the object of one’s faith to overcome the problem or circumstance at hand and makes the Cross of Christ of no effect.  They become the law given to gain victory when under Grace through faith we maintain our victory.

For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the Gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the Cross of Christ should be made of none effect.” 1 Corinthians 1:17

These wisdom of words are commandments of man being taught as doctrine from behind the pulpits and have many in the Church, and I speak here of those who truly love the Lord, under bondage to satan.  Unknowingly they have been deceived and their faith has been shifted to these various doctrines which are constantly tossing them to and fro.  This corruption of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Him crucified through the wisdom of words has presented another Jesus and another gospel for victorious Christian living, while maintaining Jesus Christ and Him crucified for their Salvation.  This spiritual adultery committed by the sincere Believer has them bound by the powers of darkness.  No matter the lies they may tell themselves, others and even God, they do not have joy unspeakable and peace beyond all understanding.

For the preaching of the Cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are Saved it is the Power of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:18

The Cross of Christ is foolishness to them who are perishing.  Are you perishing? We must recognize how we receive the preaching of the Cross of Christ for daily living unto God.  The Cross of Christ was a place of great suffering for our Lord but for the Believer it is a place of great blessing.  Sadly, many have been led away from the Cross of Christ and their blessings have been off.  No longer are they in God’s Will for their life because after having done all, they did not stand but ventured out to fight the devil in their own strength.

11 Put on the whole Armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole Armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”  Ephesians 6:11-13

Satan is a formidable foe to those who do not stand in God’s Armor.  One cannot withstand the evil day in their own strength.  It is God’s Armor, not our own.  In Christ Jesus, we stand and see the Salvation of the Lord.  In all others, certain destruction awaits.

The Name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous run into it, and is safe.” Proverbs 18:10.

Given to Know

fullsizeoutput_83e

11 And He (Jesus) said unto them (His Disciples), Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the Kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: 12 That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.” Mark 4:11-12

The prying eyes and ears of unbelievers are not given the knowledge to perceive nor understand the mystery of the Kingdom of God.  Many of these unbelievers are professing Believers who have an intellectual knowledge of Scripture and a knowledge of miracles, signs and wonders but because they do not perceive nor understand the Scripture, they cannot discern the miracles, signs and wonders are nothing more than signs and lying wonders from the powers of darkness and not from God.  These are not Disciples of the Jesus but followers of satan’s ministers who have been transformed as ministers of righteousness (2 Corinthians 11:13-15).  Sadly, they fail to realize satan has power to perform miracles.

Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the Truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the Truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12

Miracles performed by the power of God will always edify His Word.  The sick will be healed. The lame will walk.   Please understand, this writer BELIEVES in miracles.  I have seen miracles in my own life.  However, we must also realize that the spirit of the antichrist  is already in this world (1 John 4:3) and satan gives them power to perform “miracles”, which in fact are nothing more than lying signs and wonders to deceive the very elect.  The delusion of those who don’t love the Truth that they might be Saved is because they had pleasure in signs and lying wonders from the devil.   Remember, the power of God is the Cross of Christ to those who are Saved (1 Cor. 1:18), NOT oil secreting Bibles and statues of dead Saints.

Those who have ears to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to the churches are Jesus’ Disciples Who follow Him daily.  Those who follow the Jesus of the Bible, the Jesus Who came to die on Calvary’s Cross for whosoever will believe and continue to believe the Cross of Christ is the power of God to those of us who are Saved.  Not by might, not by power but by His Spirit alone is the work of God superintended in the hearts and lives of the Believer when our faith is placed solely and exclusively in the Cross of Christ and miracles will FOLLOW.

17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In My Name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” Mark 16:17-18

Seeing, many see not.  Hearing, many hear not.  Those who do not hear nor see are not Disciples of Jesus Christ and Him crucified and they are not given to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of God, therefore they concoct their own philosophies from their vain imaginations which appeal to the itchy ears of the curious.

23 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear. 24 And He said unto them, Take heed what you hear: with what measure you mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.” Mark 4:23-24

Take heed what you hear.  The measure of which you hear…it shall be measured to you.

Behold the Lamb of God

lamb-of-God-535x360

The Sacrificial System was implemented immediately after Adam’s fall to reconcile fallen man unto God and remained in effect until being fulfilled in Christ Jesus. The Blood of bulls and goats could not pay the penalty of sin, which is death, but served to restore fellowship between God and man.

Every lamb offered was a Type of Christ; a symbol of Jesus’ redemptive work on Calvary’s Cross.  Jesus Christ was and is the Lamb of God which takes away the sin of the world.  Whosoever believes upon His Redemptive work on Calvary’s Cross shall be saved.  The Cross of Christ is the power of God for those who are Saved but unto others It is foolishness (1 Cor. 1:18).

As for me and my house, we are determined to know nothing else among you save Jesus Christ and Him crucified (1 Cor. 2:2).

Behold the Lamb of God, which takes away the sin of the world.” John 1:29
