Where might you meet with the Lord; A desolate place. Devoid of inhabitants, Devoid of visitors. Free from noise, Free from distractions. This can be found most clearly in the practices of Jesus himself, the gospel of Mark sights some 20 times Jesus goes to a desolated or isolated place to be Alone with the Father. Jesus himself says when you prayer, go into a room, shut the door and prayer to your Father who can not be seen, but sees All things. Psalm 1:1 opens with this Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. Two things 1. The law refers to the Torah, the history of God’s interaction with humanity. 2. In Jewish writings often day and night is a reference to order and chaos. Day being order, the light. Night being chaos, the darkness. Joyful is the person who continues to read over the history of God’s engagement with humanity in both the Good days, and the days of great despair. Meet with God, open up the scriptures. And Give yourself some time to listen to His voice. Jesus’ promise is simple to a modern believer. “I am with you, always to the end of the age” (Matt 28:20b) He will meet you where you are. Blessed be your day x
If God chooses to walk with His creation, and cares not for status and power like that of men. What form would get him closest to humanity? Vise versa what form would be the easiest for humanity to SEE and EXPERIENCE The truth and grace Of a God who is bigger then a universe we can’t even begin to understand or comprehend. The answer is simple as this. A man. A man Named Jesus. Who lived a humble life and died a sinners death. A God who humiliated himself so some might believe they are in fact loved and valued by their creator. And through that feeling of love - purpose is born Truth. Prophets don’t speak like jesus, Jesus spoke with authority. As if He knew all things. Picture - Sea of Galilee. The water Jesus walked on.
A land, a people, an on going story. Before you leave a comment, before you say a single word against Jesus being God. I want to share with you something that Jesus (yeshua or isa, if you call him that) said to his followers. Indeed the hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering a service to God. And they will do these things because they have NOT known the father, NOR me. But I have said these things to you, that when their hour comes you may remember that I told them to you. Jesus goes onto say this; For the father loves you, because YOU have loved me and have BELIEVED that I came FROM God. I came FROM the father and have come into the world, and now I am leaving the world and GOING to the father. These aren’t the words of just another man or a prophet, these are the words of Jesus Christ who allowed people to see him on equal standing with God, the father. Jesus is the completion, and the fulfillment of who God is and always will be to humanity. He is The answer, the truth, the solution & the salvation. Always forever. @headlandstories @israelcannan thanks for the footage and edit!
Innocent blood has been spilt throughout human history. Today somewhere across this globe, innocent blood is being split at the expense of human greed, power and hate. The letter to the Hebrews speaks of “Jesus as the mediator of the new covenant (the old covenant being that of Moses in exodus 24:8) and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.” (Hebrews 12:24) To understand this statement we must go back to genesis 4 and the story of Cain and Abel. This was the first recorded killing of a human from another. Adam & eve (humanity) after being exiled from the garden seem to have fallen down a slippery slope fast. Caín is Adam and eve’s first born son, the first born of humanity who kills his brother Abel out of jealousy and anger. In chapter 4:9 God asks Cain where is your brother Abel, Cain avoids the truth of his actions and God goes on to say this - what have you done? The VOICE of your brother’s BLOOD is crying to me from the ground. What might Innocent blood killed by evil choices say, crying out to God - guilty! Guilty! GUILTY Cain is Guilty. Jesus was crucified an innocent man in the first century in one of the most painful deaths man has ever formulated. THE CROSS. His blood was split at the hands of men who only wished to keep power and control, men who were jealous and angry at the impact Jesus was having on the people their were meant to be leading and controlling. if the author of Hebrews claims that Jesus’ blood would speak better things then that of Abel, what might the blood of Jesus be saying. Here is a possible suggestion I have. Turn to Luke 23:34 of the Bible. At this point in the gospel story Jesus has been nailed the cross, and is slowly dying. it is here where Jesus calls out, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do” Forgive them, forgive them, forgive them.... who? The guilty. who? The enemy. Who? The unaware. Who? The sinners. Romans 5:8 says While you were still sinners, Christ died for you. How true this statement stands. To believe in the blood of Jesus is to believe in the testimony of his blood which continues to cry out for you. Forgiven. Forgiven. You are forgiven.
A dilemma of sorts. Have a read. Ask a Christian, a Jew or a Muslim how did God create the universe? The answer will be universally the same, God created the universe through his “word” God SAID let there be light on day One. Then God continued to speak on day two, three, four, five and six. God created ALL THINGS through his ‘Word’. So my question to you is this; is the Word of God a creator or a creation? This is the dilemma; If it is considered a creator, then the Word of God is God. Distinct from God yet equal to or connected to God simultaneously. If it is not considered a creator but rather a creation of God then how did God create it, if in fact, all things were created through the word of God. Those who believe that God created all things through his word are forced to follow the former, that the word of God is in fact God. The Quran states that Jesus is kalimat Allah, the word of God. (Sura 3:39,45) This title given to Jesus is shared by the gospel author John, who clearly claims that Jesus is the Word of God made flesh, in his first chapter John 1:1-4 If the word of God is not a creation but a creator, then we can easily and immediately identify the true identity of Jesus of Nazareth to every single belief system that acknowledges his existence. Jesus is God. Interestingly enough the Quran also lays claim that Jesus is not only the word of God, but also the spirit of God (sura 4:171) Open the Torah or the Old Testament and read genesis 1:2b and you’ll see this “And the SPIRIT OF GOD was hovering over the face of the waters.” (There is a little story in the gospels where Jesus hovers over or “walks” on water) Here is what JOHN has to say about Jesus being the word of God for those who have never read it; In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God and the word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him and without him nothing was made that was made. Only Jesus is the giver of life, because only Jesus is the creator of life. Proverbs 107:11 Every word of God is pure (tested, refined, found pure) He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. Tag a friend #taggedbyjesus
I was glad when they said to me Let us go to the house of the Lord! Our feet have been standing within your gates, O Jerusalem! Jerusalem—built as a city that is bound firmly together, to which the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord, as was decreed for Israel, to give thanks to the name of the Lord. There thrones for judgment were set, the thrones of the house of David. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! May they be secure who love you! Peace be within your walls and security within your towers! For my brothers and companions' sake I will say, "Peace be within you!" For the sake of the house of the Lord our God, I will seek your good. Psalms 122
