Jesus is the Almighty God. The word became flesh and dwelt among us. We beheld His glory the only begotten of the Father full of grace and truth. The law came by Moses but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
Do you know about the isness of Jesus? I commend to you the booK of the Acts to begin your search if you desire to know. The mystery of godliness is great and this is without argument.
This is the year of endowment. God has gifted us to glorify his name through the Spirit.
“The God of Israel will be your rereward.” Isaiah 42:12
Security from Yesterday.“God requireth that which is past.”At the end of the year we turn with eagerness to all that God has for the future, and yet anxiety is apt to arise from rememberingthe yesterdays.Our present enjoyment of God’s grace is apt to be checked by the memory of yesterday’s sins and blunders.But God is the God of our yesterdays, and He allows the memory of them in order to turn the past into a ministry of spiritual culture for the future.God reminds us of the past lest we get into a shallow security in the present.
Security for Tomorrow. “For the Lord will go before you.”This is a gracious revelation, that God will garrison where we have failed to.He will watch lest things trip us up again into like failure, as they assuredly would if He were not our rereward.God’s hand reaches back to the past and makes a clearing-house for conscience.
Security for Today.“For ye shall not go out with haste.”As we forth into the coming year, let it not be in the haste of impetuous, un-remembering delight, nor with the flight of impulsive thoughtlessness, but with the patient power of knowing that the God of Israel will go before us; it is true that we have lost opportunities which will never return, but God can transform this destructive anxiety into a constructive thoughtfulness for the future.Let the past sleep, but let it sleep on the bosom of Christ.
Leave the Irreparable Past in His hands, and step out into the Irresistible Future with Him
Global Changers by Bishop N.L. Wagner
Greetings to all who love the Lord and are waiting for the day of His appearing. The responsibility of the church in a sin cursed world must become more vividly alive than ever before. If we do not move in the position of a revolutionist demanding an immediate change in the system, I’m afraid we shall all burn to death. The fire of burning I refer to is the fire of lust, the fire of hate, the fire of selfishness. The church must become aware of her God given responsibility and determine to fulfill her cause.
Exodus chapter 19 outlines the work of the people of God. “And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation…” From this passage it is immediately discerned that we have been chosen to serve God.
Before one can be a revolutionist he must clearly understand the cause for change. In order to comprehend the cause for change, we must understand the will of our Creator. God desires that all men will live in the fear of God and become the image of God.
Notice again the Exodus passage. We are to become a kingdom of priests. Because of Israel’s failure to walk in the light of the word of God, the priesthood was limited to only one tribe and then only a section of that tribe. It is not God’s will that only one man be priest, but it is God’s will that the entire church enter into the priesthood.
We also are to become a Holy Nation. When we speak of the word “holy” we speak of that which is different, or that which is distinctly His. We can never be common with others; we must seek to be different. Twelve disciples were chosen by Jesus to be the first global changers. The Old Testament Prophets were they who prophetically told what would befall the world. They were not sent for change as much as they were sent for prophecy. Their message was a warning. In the New Testament however, the Apostles are called to be global changers.
Inasmuch as we follow the Apostles Doctrine, we must gravitate to the original purpose of apostleship and that is to carry forth the message of change. Holiness demands change. Presently in modern Christianity, there is no demand for change but simply cooperation. We are told in modern day Christianity that we must cooperate with the gay liberation. We are told we must cooperate with those who pursued equal rights and its Amendment. We are told that we must cooperate with injustice. We are told that sin is the norm of the day. But that can never be holiness. Holiness demands change!
You were called to be a priest. Therefore, you are the middle man. You must stand between Heaven and Hell, delivering men and women from the pit of hell to the plateaus of Heaven. You are the priest. You are set forth with a responsibility of bringing God down to the people and simultaneously lifting the people up to God. You are the priest. You are called to serve rather than be served. Second, you are to be a Holy Nation. You’re to dress differently that the crowd. Rather than follow the styles, you are to set the styles. You must not simply participate in business who invest their dollars in ways that are contrary to the Godly way, but you must be proprietors of business and sit on the Board of Directors of businesses and corporations in order that the dollars may be invested in communities, and people, and the work that fosters the principles of God. You must seek to change educationally, demanding that your children have the privilege of knowing their Creator, God, and being able to call Him by name in their classroom. For to separate prayer in the classroom is to separate breath from lungs. Man cannot simply breathe in a given location and not in another; it must be constant if he expects to live. The scripture says men must pray always. I give to you the following advice:
·Know God and His purposeMay the blessings of God be upon you and your family, and may you be actively engaged as a GLOBAL CHANGER!
Having therefore obtained help of God,I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come; that Christ should suffer, and that he should be the first that should rise from the dead, and should shew light to the people, and to the Gentiles.
