JESUS CHRIST THE SON OF GOD
As our Lord Jesus Christ had risen from the dead, He told His authority to His disciples by the verse Matthew 28.18:
“18. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.”
His Ascension to that most influential post in the universe is yet described for instance in the Hebr. 12.2nd verse:
“and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
And at the 5th chapter of the Revelation we see, how ONLY HIM FATHER GOD MAY GIVE THE BOOK OF THE SECRETS CONCERNING THE FUTURE EVENTS!
Yet some disquisition we’ll get at the verses 13.31-32 of the Gospel of Mark:
“31. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
32. But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.”
Some ones have this interpreted so that the power of Jesus not would be perfect. Unto this we must at once say, that statement concerned Jesus only at that moment as He yet was in the form of man. At the time as the text of Acts 1.7 had been spoken, the situation was quite different, because Jesus then already had got the Resurrection. Then He already knew.
“7. And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.”
Yet the verses of John 14.9-10 with other for us express something of that, how and how close was the relation between THE FATHER AND THE SON:
“9. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
10. Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.”
And yet at the verses 19.11-16 of the Revelation we have to read a fine description, how OUR LORD IS COMING – HE WHO IS THE KING OF KINGS AND THE LORD OF LORDS! See Rev. 19.16. Also see Judah the verses 14-15.
And at the end we may join to the Psalm verses 113.1-3:
“1. Praise ye the LORD. Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD.
2. Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore.
3. From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD's name is to be praised.”
HUNDRED SHEEP - ONE DISAPPEARED
Comparisons of the jesus were well practice's nearby. Also so following place from Bible is connected intimately that I drive- About 2000 years ago- To businesses and work: "Niina spoke to them this comparison saying: If also whereby is hundred sheep and he loses the one of these, isn't he leaves ninety nine wilderness and goes to search for disappeared, until he it to find? And when they found he puts the to its shoulders enjoying. And when he comes to the home, calls he size its friend and their neighbour and tells them: Rejoice with me, in that I found my sheep, which was missing. I will say for you: Same is pleasure in the sky larger from the connection from erring, which makes the improvement, as from ninety ninth from just, which don't improvement to need." (Bones 15.3-7).
In this comparison main teaching also surely is, that Jesus transmits also from connection from the soul. Also one is to him important. The another point in this it is, that the rescue is individual and personal matter. To rescue does not to come just involved in the group. It demands Your own wanted and your solution. In this not Jesus spoken involved in the group about the moving. But afterwards you have agreed The Lord to be own, comes it naturally to admit also to others. Otherwise you must not power to winning your sin and other matters.
They 99 got that as moment to remain there to their places and that the shepherd concentrated on their power and time that to searching One. He not that wanted to leave to the wilderness predators' toothed. He wanted to search for That kadoksiin of the One, To have been forced. Hear my friend, Jesus Christ Is Exactly That kind of Good shepherd Today. If so you admit astray, and you do not find the road- As wall is Your before you- So hear the today: Your assistance Shout Jesus Christ, God Boy. He is Master to rescue. He leads To you first advice and to give to your wounds, First aid, Medication. It would not missing is the sheep other could make as in his emergency to shout. And Shepherd Hear and Hears Today. He comes his large power and with their skill for the assistance to you.
CONTACT TO JESUS
Evangelic of the Markus 5. In figure is told about woman, which had become ill the bleeding disease twelve years. He had heard Jesus to have helped many. Other care companies have not been borne fruit.
He came and approached Jesus in the crowd from behind. He penetrated to be still closer and to be closer. There when approaching his hope changed to be belief. Last came very near, bowed down and on his hand got Contact, Jesus I refer to flapper.
And then! He experienced, that from Power current Jesus went through his body and he improved in a moment!
You too You can your Prayer With Ojentaa's Hand Jesus Towards! Also You you can approach Him, God Boy's, Jesus Christ! Also You You can have k in question [s] k not [t] u [u] s not N Häneen! And He wants to help You in your Your difficult matter.
Markus 5 28- 29: 'In that he said: "Provided that I get to touch his even clothing, so I come the blade-veeksi". And immediately his blood source dried, and he knew in their body, that had improved from his bother. '
A Future and A Hope
In Jeremiah 29:11 we find this promise:
” For I know the purposes which I am planning for you, says the Lord; purposes of peace, and not for evil; to give you a future and a hope.”
These words are telling how God is, how He is thinking of us human beings.
God’s thoughts of us people are solely good. They are thoughts of peace and not thoughts of calamity. He wants to give every person a good future and hope that will not fail. Already now He wants to give us the good we need.
The promise that came through prophet Jeremiah about the future and hope was originally intended to the people of Israel for a special occasion. The nation had been moved to Babel to captivity. God had allowed this to happen, because the nation had waived from God. They had served idols and lived in sin. God had warned them through many prophets but they didn’t want to listen to Him. By doing so, they doomed themselves. God allowed foreign conquerors to destroy the land and take the people away from their own country.
However, God did not forget His people. Through prophet Jeremiah he had given a promise that: “… after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place.”
And then God speaks words that reveal the Heart of a Father: I have the thoughts of Peace and not judgments for you.
-God wanted no evil to His people. The people had been cursed by their sins, that were many and the same curse had also come to their children and children’s children.
But God wanted to change the destiny of His people. 70 years was the time in which the nation had to be prepared to receive God ´s promise. New generation was allowed to return to it ´s country. These 70 years gives us a glimpse about the fact that God wants to create new, when old is not good enough. God always creates new. He is never patching old. For this same reason we human beings also have to receive birth from above, for being able to go into the Kingdom of Heaven, which we lost due falling into many sins.
Therefore a newborn person shall also stroll in his new life and put away the old life that is not good enough to God. The time in which a person should be prepared to the Kingdom of Heaven is 70 or maximum 80 years. Blessed is the one who will be prepared early in his life and shall produce good fruits with his life that are sweet for God.
God expected His people to turn to Him. He already knew in advance that this would happen. That ´s why He already in advance had promised through prophet Jeremiah: “Then you shall call on Me, and you shall go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you shall seek and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. And I will be found by you, says The Lord. And I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places where I have driven you, says The Lord. And I will bring you again into the place from which I sent you into exile, from there.” (Jer. 29:12-14)
Israel was once again allowed to meet it ´s God. God redeemed it ´s sins and they didn’t have to carry the punishment and guiltiness for their sins no more. A new era had begun in their lives. When God raised Cyrus, the mighty king of Persia to carry out his will, the people were allowed to return to their own Land. After the people had return to God, nothing could stop God in doing His will. Cyrus, who didn’t know God, was allowed to serve Him in a great mission.
For Israel’s sake he was allowed to conquer Babel in order to let the people to return to their own country.
All this happened only because the people had returned to their God. For His people ´s remorse, He moved whole nations. Whole of His administration machinery was started after the people had called for His help in their prayers.
When you remorse and turn to God, He will put His authority and power only for you, because He wants to give everyone a future and a hope.
God has the thoughts of Peace and not judgments for everyone. Still, there are many people who are thinking wickedly about God. They are thinking: “God is a cruel tyranny and I have to be afraid of Him. He is punishing and revenging. He is ruthless and teasing with the fire of suffering and He moves us from one purgatory to another”. But hey, GOD is not like this. Satan is.
Satan has only the thoughts of judgments of people. You can not expect anything good if Satan is you ´re god.
Many believers also have a distort image of God. And because of this, their life ´s are very difficult; because they are living under distort future. Their hope is not hope, but despair. They are continuously waiting for yet another suffering, because they think that the life of a Christian has to be difficult, if not impossible.
By doing so, they are whipping themselves and wanting to pay the price of suffers to God.
God is not like this. Yes. He is testing and learning His children, but in His school we will learn to know and see how He really is. He has the thoughts of Peace and not judgments for us. This is the God we will learn to know from His word.
Every person, even every Christian, should find out in who ´s school he is going.
If it’s not the school of God, you should as soon as possible change it to His school, because it is the only school where you’ll learn to know Him exactly as He is. In God ´s promise: “I will give you a Future and a Hope.” there are three great things. The greatest is that God will give you an eternal life. Through His son ´s, Jesus Christ’s propitation, He forgives all of our sins and we are allowed to go into the Kingdom of Heaven. We will have an eternal life after this life.
Eternal life is a wonderful future and hope that soon will be fulfilled for a believer.
We can live and work in hope of an eternal life, in this reality of Christianity that soon will be changed into seeing The Lord. We will see our Lord Jesus Christ face to face. He is our Hope and in Him we are connected through our faith.
In Him who is sitting on a Heavenly seat at right of God and is continuously working for us. He is our High Priest and intercessor. Through Him we are able to tell everything to Our Heavenly Father and through Him we will always get help at right time.
In this reality of an eternal life and to this connection that we have to our living hope, to Jesus Christ who is our High Priest, is based the second great thing that is in the promise of God: “I’ll give you a future and a hope.”
This second thing is our spiritual life. Jesus Christ is living in us through His Holy Spirit. He is the Hope of Glory in us. (Kol. 1:27).
Into this Hope and Richness of spiritual life you can come through Christ when you accept Christ as your savior and the adaptation of your sins; when your sins are wiped away by Him. A new amazing future will open to you with Christ.
A person, who is born again from Heaven, will receive spiritual gifts. He will learn what it is to stroll in the Holy Spirit. He will be able to serve others with all the spiritual equipments, which he will receive from God. He will produce plenty of all kinds of fruits to his Lord Jesus and rejoice the fact that all those fruit producing sources are in Jesus Christ, who is the Hope of Glory. He will receive everything as a gift from God.
Thirdly; this promise of God: “I’ll give you a future and a hope”, means our present life. Everyone, who comes into the Kingdom of God, will be concerned of all the blessings in the present life as well. When you allow God to give you a future and a hope, He will also repair and unite your present life. He will compensate your losses, whatever it might have been; you’re relationships, family life or anything that is or have been broken. God is powerful enough to give you a future and a hope also in your present life.
Gracious and good God wants to say everybody- No matter what you ´re present life situation is-“For I know the purposes which I am planning for you, says the Lord; purposes of peace, and not for evil; to give you a future and a hope.”
Every one of us can meet Him. He will listen and He will answer. He gives all of us A Future and A Hope.
Blessed Are The Peacemakers.
Matt.5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Are you longing for peace in your life? Are you surrounded by conflicts and worries? Stress at work and misfortune have taken your peace, love and balance from your life. You feel like needing new power for surviving.
God has promised to give you the power, which you yet don’t have, for being able to turn to Him and for becoming the child of God of which He will take care of and lead in different situation in life.
You are reading writing based on the words of Jesus Christ. You can also listen to the same message through the sites of Net radio or by going to a religious meeting that are arranged in different churches and assembles.
After finding Jesus Christ in your life and after getting the power and spirit of God, it will start taking you through difficulties and disappointments of life until peace returns into your life and you yourself will become a peacemaker.
At the same time you will be confirmed that you indeed are a child of God and descendant of Heaven. If there’s not this assurance, you should go and hear more gospel based on the words of Jesus Christ.
The Gospel (written or talked) will turn into faith, which is by Jesus through his spirit.
Read Bible. There you will find the example of Christ and the Apostles, how they followed and carried out the will of God.
Ef.5:8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light. 9. For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth. 10. Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. 11. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them .
Do you want to be the winner of your own life? Do you want to win the troubles of your life?
I know you are longing for this, because the creation itself is longing and waiting for it. Whole of the creation will be delivered from the bondage of corruption, how much more you sole little human among billions of people. Don’t say to yourself that this is not possible, because then you won’t be in the truth.
Go to religious meetings and teaching of gospel, get together with other believers, have praying life and communion.
Thirsting young man
I was about sixteen years old as I first time beg public praying in a countryhouse meeting in the Easten Tavastland in Finland. Already some time before that I had understood that there is God. But then God began to awake me in such a way, that I falled into an accident. A great truck auto made a rush on me. I was near the death. Finally I came to meet the speaking of God as one of our young comrades was killed under a great auto on the main road. I felt a personal calling from God and innerly heard a voice saying: ‘Come, come’.
I began to seek more light of such questions, how to get the experience of the sureness of the salvation? And what’s in general concerning that?
My grandmother received a spiritual publication. Then she died and my parents were in that house organizing the funeral feast and also all the public duties concerning these. In one room I found that spiritual magazine. Before I had not seen it, but now got interest on it. I went to the aunts and said: Have you somewhere more of these publications? Some of them gave me a bale.
At once I went home and began with interest and thirsting to read. Very rapidly I got clear of many of the elements in the life of believer. Greedily I read like such an one who has found something very important.
And yet I thank and praise God that His mercy has been enough great in all my life even to this moment. And also I’ll thank God that He can yet give possibilites to be with all His owns spreading the message of God, the gospel: Jesus Christ will help man, He can give innerly peace and satisfaction. However, before all every one who will - if he shall receive this mercy of God - may get this hope and everlasting life in eternity. All of us must one day leave this life.
JOHN: 7:37 : ‘IN THE LASTE DAY, THAT GREAT DAY OF THE FEAST, JESUS STOOD AND CRIED, SAYING, IF ANY MAN THIRST, LET HIM COME UNTO ME, AND DRINK.’
CHRIST IS THE SAVIOUR
At the Gospel of John, on the verses 8.31-36 we may read:“ 31. Jesus, therefore, said unto the Jews who believed in him, `If ye may remain in my word, truly my disciples ye are, and ye shall know the truth, 32. and the truth shall make you free.' 33. They answered him, `Seed of Abraham we are; and to no one have we been servants at any time; how dost thou say--Ye shall become free?' 34. Jesus answered them, `Verily, verily, I say to you--Every one who is committing sin, is a servant of the sin, 35. and the servant doth not remain in the house--to the age, the son doth remain--to the age; 36. if then the son may make you free, in reality ye shall be free.”
These verses refers to the ”slavery” – it means “to be a servant of the sin”. And the verse 8.36 will affirm for us that THE SON OF GOD IS ABLE TO MAKE MAN REALLY FREE.
HOWEVER, THE CONDITION IS THAT THE MAN WILL SEEK THAT LIBERTY IN HIS WHOLE HEART. And the word in the verse 8.32 demands that such a seeker must then on his side reject all the lie, the hypocrisy etc. in his life, and dedicate it for the purification OF THE KING OF THE TRUTH.
If the man then really experienced that purification, he is very gratefull of that to his Saviour, Jesus Christ. In consequence of that in a such man it will be born the attachment and love to the Saviour, because he innerly is feeling and experiecing how he got that freedom.
My wife told how she became into belief. As she the first time publicly allowed to pray for her, so she felt, how like the IRON FETTERS innerly fell from her. She felt she is free!
But the enemy of our souls, the Satan, is hating that, that some one person got the freedom in Christ. In many ways he will attack against that received freedom, joy and peace. Very soon he will somehow try to mix that thing.
For instance in the Rev. 2.4th verse we seee, how the enemy in that church of Ephesus brought about such a situation, where the Saviour must say: 4. `But I have against thee: That thy first love thou didst leave! 5. remember, then, whence thou hast fallen, and reform, and the first works do; and if not, I come to thee quickly, and will remove thy lamp-stand from its place--if thou mayest not reform;
And yet by the verse 2.5 we see, how Jesus advises “TO REMEMBER – WHENCE THEY HAVE FALLEN”.
And yet, those chapters 2 and 3 contain even many advices on that, how the enemy in very many ways may mix, lead astray, and even in some new ways to bind into new fetters – of some different kind.
At the epistle (letter) to the believers in Galatia, at the verse 5.1 apostle Paul is writing: “ 1. In the freedom, then, with which Christ did make you free--stand ye, and be not held fast again by a yoke of servitude;”
In the case of those believers at Galatia it was the danger to become into the bindings of the religious slavery. Here we may ascertain, that at the time about 200 years the enemy succeded to extinguish the first Christian revival and love to Christ. Of those events there have been written many books and wide articles. As the results of the works of the enemy we see in the world many different religious ceremonies, institutions etc. Jesus Christ will make free also even from all such INTO THE REAL FREEDOM, LIBERTY OF THE HEARTS.
At the letter to the Hebrews we read: “ 13. now, then, may we go forth unto him without the camp, his reproach bearing; 14. for we have not here an abiding city, but the coming one we seek;” (13.13-14).
By the verse 14.17 at the letter to the Romans we see: “ for the reign of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit;”
In such a condition of THE PEACE, JOY AND RIGHTEOUSNESS we all sure would in the gratefulness serve to our LORD – so with our means, resources and all, and by the voluntary love – without any compulsion serve Him, like it has been expressed in a song: “by the hearts, by the lips and by the works of the hands”
THE BEGINNING OF SORROWS
At the verses 24.3-8 we read:
” 3. And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? 4. And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8. All these are the beginning of sorrows.”
Some other translation versions (also the Finnish) express this by the name ’THE BEGINNING OF THE PRENATAL PAINS’. Even Jesus Himself it expresses so – by the Greek original text – that series of the diverse events at the end time. Sure we all have discovered, how such like these matters in a thickening step have already occurred during the last decades.
Too, found we, how this English translation, version of King James, has taken also that word ’pestilence’ – even in the plural form (meaning ’many’). This I understand so, that it means even many kinds of the epidemic or pandemic deseases. At last times we have had such for instance great epidemies of the flu, the AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome), and the newest the SARS.
So, this all means a serious series of important signs of the time, which prove the approach of THE DAY OF THE LORD – that is the time of the end.
Thus, the Kingdom of God is near to its birth and THE PRENATA PAINS HAVE ALREADY BEGUN. However, this has been only the beginning. The proper pains of the birth come soon – from now on.
This matter has been more illustrated at the verses 21.24-27 of the Gospel of Luke:” 24. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. 25. And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; 26. Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 27. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.”
And yet at verse 11.25 of the Paul’s latter to the Romans:” 25. For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in”.
Commonly we understand those last words meaning ’the fulfilment of the number’ of those people, who will be gathered into the Heavenly Kingdom from the other nation but jews.
And at last, please notive, the comforting point of view, which will be opened at the followings words, articulated by OUR LORD HIMSELF: ” 28. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. 29. And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees.” (Luke 21.28-29). ” 31. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. 32. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.” (Luke 21.31-32).
THE PROPHET OF GOD CAN’T BE ONE SUCH AN USUAL
Why? Because he has in his inner world such a call, such a ‘burning’, that he shall by the command of God cry to this world the reviving word.
Let us even think OF THAT JOHN THE BAPTIST AND HIS DRESSING, of which we may read at the Matthew 3.4-6 verses:“4. And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey. 5. Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan, 6. And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.”
However, there was one such a means for the advertisement of God. In every case – in that community – the people at once understood, that the prophet of God had begun to proclaim the message of God! AND THEY STROKE OUT!
I think, such a means of the advertisement by God was also the phenomen of falling, as in the late1970ies in Finland began in the meetings of the preacher Niilo Ylivainio such quite new, things before unheard of. Then in that quiet spiritual situation God caused that the people really stroke out of their homes and even of other! And they came to the meetings to see and to hear!
However, that phenomenon of the falling was not so very strange to them, who knew the Bible. We may remember Saulus on the way to Damascus (the Acts 9.3-4) and the experiences of Saul (in the 10th chapter of Samuel).
But something strange and curious it was to some inhabitants of Jerusalem, which has been us told at the beginning verses of 2nd chapter of the Acts. But everyone, who has that experienced, knows how in that a man is like the bird, singing spontaneously his own praising song to God!
But there in Jerusalem in that day – by the verse 2.6 – of the Acts THE MULTITUDE CAME TOGETHER. And, really, this was the meaning of God. In one moment Peter got the opportunity of his life to proclaim to all the folk THE MESSAGE OF GOD. Entirely it is to be read in that chapter, but it like tightened into the words at the verse 2.38:
“38. Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”And in the same way was the message by John the Baptist in the verse Matthew 3.2:“2. And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
And the will of God is that also we proclaim this message even today. At the same time God will announce, that THE TIME IS NO MORE LONG! The signs of the time have already long told about that! Please now take into the consideration, what GOD IS SPEAKING:
At the Hebrews in the verses 2.1-4 the same thing has been said a little in other words:
“1. Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip. 2. For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward; 3. How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; 4. God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?”
