ARE YOU FREE?

You can see for yourself in John 8:29, it states “I do always those things which please him”. How often did the Lord Jesus do those things which pleased the Father? Always!!!
That was the nature of the sinlessness of His humanity. This was the character of His normality. This was the perfect liberty of God’s son (the true meaning of Liberty). We say “I’ll do as I please” and imagine that this represents the liberty we enjoy, the freedom that the Lord Jesus enjoyed. It is given to you and me. The Lord Jesus was always at liberty to do only those things that pleased his Father. That is freedom. In other terms Jesus may be saying “I’ve entered into no engagement, I’ve made no friendship”, “I’ve indebted myself to nobody nor am I under obligation to anybody anywhere at any time”. That’s Freedom.
Hebrews 11:5-6 - in the fifth chapter first we are told that Enoch was translated that he should not see death and was not found, because God had translated him. Before his translation he had the te…

THOU ART WORTHY 2- LIFE/ZOE

He that hath the Son has life (Zoe)! Zoe is life in the Greek. He that does not have the Son of God is without that life, he is dead. The Lord Jesus came, to raise the dead. “I come”, said He, that you might have exactly what dead men need - life. In the resurrection as described in His conversation with Nicodemis, He describes a  new birth, a spiritual regeneration that took place for the first time in all human history. This on the grounds of the redemptive act at Pentecost, when our Risen Lord came for the first time to inhabit the humanity of 120 men and women.

At His command they were waiting for that inducement with power from on high that could be theirs only in the presence of a person that could abolish death and impart to them  all the dynamics of Christ’s divine indwelling.He was born in humanity like told in the book of Hebrews. He assumed flesh and blood sanctifying himself. He presented his body, his soul and His spirit in the totality of His being as man. He became holy …

THOU ARE WORTHY 1

Thou art worthy because of the price that was paid by Jesus. To receive glory, he should not be asking or expecting too much from us. He wants us to glorify him in character and in the essence of our lives.We are to honor His memory and His act of faith by having confidence in His teachings. As part of His creation you and I as men were created to please God. Without Faith it is impossible to please Him because that is how God engineered us. This is the sure Divine Logic of God that there is a Hidden factor absent in Human understanding or reasoning. This alone is the mountain of difference between what is divinely possible and otherwise cannot be humanely unreasonable. The hidden factor is God himself. You and I are so engineered with a body, soul, and spirit, and also mind emotion and will that God alone could (in us) be the origin of His own image.
He's the only one that can do it. He is God, teaching the mind and controlling the emotions. He directs the Will. God governs the be…
