MESSIAH JESUS IN ISAIAH 53

1559054934144-685165869.jpgIsaiah 53:1 says, “Who believes our report and to whom is Arm of the LORD revealed?” 2 He shall grow up before HIM as a tender plant root from the dry ground with no form or comeliness. So see Him of no beauty to desire Him 3 He is despised and rejected of men as man of sorrows acquainted with grief. So hid our faces from Him as He was despised and not esteemed. 4 He bore our griefs and our sorrows. 5 He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace was upon Him and by His stripes we are healed. 6 We all like sheep have gone astray and turned on our way; the LORD laid on Him iniquity of our sins. 7 He was oppressed and afflicted yet He opened not His mouth: He was brought as a Lamb to the slaughter or like sheep but did not open His Mouth. 8 He was afflicted for us but who is declaring Him to His generation? He was cut off from the land of the living for transgressions of my people was he stricken. 9 He was in the grave with the wicked and rich in death but did no evil with no deceit in His Mouth. 10 The LORD bruised Him and put Him to grief and made His Soul the offering for sin. HE sees HIS Seed raised after days as the LORD allowed in HIS HANDS. 11 HE sees travail of His Soul and His knowledge as a Righteous Servant justifies Him to bear iniquities. 12 His Portion is GREAT to Spoil spoilers and strong because He poured His Soul to death. He was with transgressors and bore our sin making intercession for us.15590550966781518400173.jpgDeclare to all generations He was cut off from the land of the living for the sake of the transgressions of MY PEOPLE and whipped. Isaiah 52:13-53:12 is about the Servant Song Book of Isaiah on Jesus the “Righteous Servant” of God. The Son of God came not to be served but to Serve and Give His Life as a ransom for many. All who believe and receive Jesus are Children of God. YAHWEH said, MY PEOPLE perish for lack knowledge and understanding so study Bible to learn. Isaiah 53 represents Jesus the Messiah and the Saviour to all nations sent by God to REDEEM sinners to restore them back to God. Jesus took on Him the punishment of all nations so all who accept Jesus Christ belong to God. Jesus a Jew from Israel is Chosen by God together with Israel who bears pogroms and suffering in Isaiah 52:4 on behalf of all others in Isaiah 53:7,11–12. Jesus is highly exalted by God to nations and kings in Isaiah 52:15 to repent for “He GAVE His Soul to death to save us.” Individuals are to follow Jesus Christ so personally saved and also nations as a whole. Christ SACRIFICED His Life as the Messiah for personal salvation. God commanded Philip to teach Ethiopian eunuch sitting in chariot, reading Book of Isaiah about Jesus. The eunuch didn’t understand what he read so Philip helps to explain to him its teachings on Jesus. The eunuch asked Philip, who was this prophet in Isaiah 53? Philip opens same scripture to preach to Eunuch about the Messiah Jesus Christ. Christians believe report Jesus is Messiah in Isaiah 53:1 so “the Arm of the LORD is revealed.” The Ethiopian Eunuch believed so baptised immediately by Phillip. The Jews and Gentiles are forgiven by Jesus on Cross because all have sinned and fallen short of the GLORY of God. All mankind’s sins are forgiven so nobody is to be blamed or hated for the crucifixion of Jesus. In Jeremiah 31:23, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel they shall use this speech in the land of Judah and in cities when I bring them from captivity; The LORD bless you O home of justice and mountain of holiness. Israel is restored after 4,000 years as a nation with own language spoken and written again. This miracle never happened in history before shows recreation by God of the world to come. As Israel is restored to original nation so God restores earth.1559055403778-685165869.jpgBut many others, despite Jesus’ signs and miracles do not believe Jesus is the Word made Flesh to dwell among us in 1 John 1:1, as Isaiah also prophecied. So not all obey the GOSPELS as Romans 10:16 said. And Isaiah 53:1 said, not all will believe the GOSPEL report although Jesus fulfilled Isaiah 53. The Arm of the LORD is a metaphor for YAHWEH’S activities in living history. Isaiah 53:4 is quoted in Matthew 8:17 as Jesus heals people in Christian ministry fulfilling what Isaiah said “He Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses and by His stripes we are healed.” God gave Jesus as atonement for all sin to redeem mankind from separation from God. So the Gospel made available to share with all who choose to listen and be saved. A timeline is set by God to share GOSPEL until the time of the Gentiles ends. Only God knows exact time is so important to accept Jesus to be saved. Opportunities are given to all to decide to accept Jesus and have Eternal Life. Or join those who refuse to believe Gospel Reports of the testimony of Jesus salvation and so face the consequences of God’s WRATH and Jesus’ With to come upon the earth. The News is full of ongoing warnings of the Arm of God to alert mankind to repent. Why gain the whole world and lose your soul? Be persuaded not death or life or angels or principalities or powers or things present or things to come or height or depth or any other creature can separate us from the LOVE of God, in Christ Jesus our Lord says Roman 8:38:39. The GREATEST GIFT from God is GIFT of ETERNAL LIFE through Jesus Christ. All you need to do is to accept Jesus, repent confess your sins to God and follow Jesus as your personal Saviour. It is a fearful thing to Fall into the HANDS of the LIVING God YAHWEH by rejecting Jesus Christ as your Lord.   

 

GREAT BANQUET KING’S SON

IMG-20190518-WA0001-3.jpgJesus compares God’s heavenly Kingdom to wedding banquet a king prepared for his son in Matthew 22:2. Many people invited agreed to come but on the banquet day all refused to attend in verses 4-5 giving many excuses. Some of the king’s servants were mistreated or killed in some cases in verse 6. The king sent his army to avenge death of servants in verse 7 extends invitations to anyone servants found so the wedding hall is full in verses 8-10. During feast the king noticed one man was not wearing wedding clothes in verse 11 but had no answer why so is thrown out from the feast “into outer darkness of weeping and gnashing of teeth in verses 12-13. Jesus ends with statement “Many called, invited but few chosen” in verse 14. One said he bought piece of land he went to see in verse 18. Another bought oxen on the way to yoke them in verse 19. Another gave excuse he was newly married so could not come in verse 20. The master of the house heard excuses was angry told servants to go to on streets, alleyways and invite “the poor, crippled, blind and lame” in verse 21.The KING is Father God and HIS Son honoured at banquet is Jesus Christ who came to save but many do not receive him in John 1:11. God sends invitation to all people but some reject Jesus as LORD so refuse to believe in Him. Many prophets, including John the Baptist and disciples murdered in Matthew 14:10. The KING’S anger, wrath, vengeance, desolation in Revelations is on all who reject salvation in Jesus, judged in Hebrews 10:29-31. Their deliberate choice to reject God’s offer by freewill choice in Luke 13:34 by excuses of permissive will of God permanently left God’s Heavenly Kingdom. The wedding invitation extends to everyone, total strangers, good, bad who “did not deserve to come in accept WORD of God sent to all not worthy of eternal life” in Acts 13:46). So GOSPEL MESSAGE Jesus taught, available to all to come just as they are. Garments of righteousness clothes people washed in the BLOOD of the LAMB. Acceptance of Jesus and repentance in HIS Blood is the means Lamb uses to makes all worthy to boldly enter PRESENCE of the KING. So to refuse to put on garment of righteousness provided means wearing old clothes unfit for the purpose of the banquet celebration. 15581851649821346803934.jpgJesus teaches conditional offer KING is obedience to HIS standard requirements to meet criteria of submission to God. God’s righteousness in Philippians 3:9 provides salvation to cover multitude of sins of filthy rags in Isaiah 64:6. Adam and Eve’s sin God took away, replaced with the skins of sacrificed animals in Genesis 3:7, 21. And in Revelation 7:14 God provides heavenly white robes washed in the BLOOD of the Lamb. The KING God provides a wedding garment of salvation for all mankind but some want things done their own way. The WAY of God is the Cross of Christ HIS only way to salvation in John 14:6. Those who refuse to submit to God’s WAY thrown out into the darkness. God sends them into an “outer darkness” eternally as Christ said, “many are invited but few are chosen.” So invitations extends to all people to hear call of God but many reject it. The world rejects Jesus so some people don’t celebrate His salvation. God judges thems as a result of their own choice to approve of rejection of Christ with dire consequences. Kingdom of heaven demands all put away their own old garments by faith to accept righteousness God provides in Christ. All those who reject God’s gift of salvation for their own “good” works will spend eternity in hell. Those who mock or ridicule God’s salvation plan by a self-righteous rejection miss Jesus cross of Calvary VICTORY. God wants all to make sure to receive God’s salvation plan to put on new garments and not retain old filthy garments of sin in God’s PRESENCE. God’s desire is seek to dwell in the HOUSE of the LORD all the days of life to behold the beauty of the LORD and enquire in HIS Temple. In time of trouble HE hides in HIS pavilion in HIS secret tabernacle and sets upon the ROCK of Ages and lifts up above enemies round about. And so offer in HIS tabernacle sacrifices of joy, sing, yes sing praises to the LORD Most High in Jesus Name says Psalms 27:4-6.

GOSPEL OF GOD’S KINGDOM

1557498091100-9023010.jpgThe GOSPEL OF GOD’S KINGDOM is the MESSAGE to all nations. In Romans 1:16 the GOSPEL is “to Jew FIRST,” then ALL NATIONS. First Choice Jews is GOSPEL POWER of GOD for SALVATION to ALL who BELIEVE in the GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST. GOD used HIS POWER to Jews first and ALL the Nations in SALVATION PLAN of GOD. Charity begins at GOD’S Home among HIS Chosen people Israel. GOD’S GOSPEL KINGDOM is established through JESUS CHRIST KING OF Kings, LORD of Lords a Jew. GOD CHOSE Jesus as Abraham’s descendant in Genesis 12 BLESSED by COVENANT. Nehemiah 9:7 says, “GOD … Chose Abram from Ur of the Chaldeans in Iraq.” In Deuteronomy 14:2, GOD CHOSES people for HIS OWN personal possession out of all people on the face of earth.”Amos 3:2 says, “You ONLY GOD CHOSE among all families on earth.” Romans 11:28-29 says GOD’S CHOICE made them HIS Beloved for the sake of the Fathers, for Gifts and Calling of God are irrevocable.” Jews descend from tribe of Judah a son of Jacob. Tribe of Lion of Judah descendant Jesus, GOD CHOSE from the Royal genealogy of King David.1557501920584-1476493729.jpg GOD’S GOSPEL KINGDOM MESSAGE in Abraham is Isaac CHOSEN by GOD to do HIS WORK and establish HIS KINGDOM on earth. SALVATION BY GOD’S POWER to ALL Nations included in Abraham’s Covenant are grafted in by faith of Jew and Gentiles. God elects Chosen by HIS FREEWILL CHOICE: “The LORD didn’t set HIS LOVE to CHOOSE you because you were more in number than others for you were fewest of all peoples, but the LORD LOVES you and keeps an Oath SWORN to forefathers in Deuteronomy 7:7-8. GOD USED SOVEREIGN POWER and HIS AUTHORITY to Decide Jews join Gentiles in HIS GOSPEL KINGDOM OF GOD. In Romans 3:1, GOD’S Revelations promise to Israel by Moses or prophets to the nations. Romans 9:4 says to Israel belongs Covenants, giving of Laws and promises.” The GOSPEL OF SALVATION is given to Jews in the WORD of God, the Old Testament Scripture is basis of laws. The Messiah Jesus Christ a Jew gave His Life as ULTIMATE SACRIFICE for sins to Jew first and all nations. In Romans 9:5   says Christ is set over all blessed by God.1557501815494-9023010.jpgThe Messiah Jesus, the Son of David in Romans 1:3 started Ministry with Jews to lost sheep of Israel in Matthew 10:5-6. Jesus in John 4:22 told the Samaritan woman at well, “SALVATION is from the Jews.” CHOSEN nation is GOD’S GOSPEL Revelation through Messiah, SAVIOUR by salvation from Jews.” Romans 11:17-24, says Jews and Gentiles grafted into Covenant by in Christ Jesus True Vine so nations are His Tree’s branches. God in HIS MERCY saves all nations as children of Abraham by faith says Galatians 3:7. All by faith children of Abraham, God’s Covenants with Abraham extends to all the nations on earth. In Acts 13:46, Paul and Barnabas preaching in Antioch of Pisidia told Jews “Its necessary the word of God be spoken to you first for eternal life to turn Gentiles.” From Israel, is the spreading of the GOSPEL to new places, through Jewish Messiah is GOOD News of His Salvation. He who is given much from him required more accountability so in Romans 2:9-10, tribulation and the time of Jacob’s distress is to Jew first and so judgement begins in the Church of God grafted in. Glory, honour, peace rewards to all who does good to the Jews, blessed. For Messiah sake, everyone given much, much is required in Luke 12:48.1557501056282-9023010.jpg In Romans 1:16, “The GOSPEL is POWER of God unto Salvation to all who believe, to Jew first and all nations. So important to understand God set up HIS KINGDOM by HIS POWER and Authority. The Seed of the woman through Genesis 29:31-35, “PRAISE THE LORD” son of Jacob, Judah CHOSEN out of 12 sons of Jacob to birth the Messiah. GOD’S GOSPEL KINGDOM is through the Son of God Jesus. GOD’S Salvation is in Christ Jesus, “HIS WAY, THE TRUTH and LIFE so none comes to Father GOD except through Jesus Christ in John 14:6. Salvation is through ONE GOD ONE Mediator between God and all wo/men in Christ Jesus in 1 Timothy 2:5. Bible is clear salvation is found ONLY in Jesus Christ for Christian believer’s in God. Authority of GOD’S WORD is the Biblical Authority of sharing the Saving GOSPEL to all nations to follow GOD’S POWERFUL GOSPEL KINGDOM of Son JESUS CHRIST. God designed and wants salvation as the SOVEREIGN LORD GOD ALMIGHTY with final say in mankind’s eternal destiny. Freewill choice is given to all mankind to accept God’s offer of salvation to join HIS GOSPEL KINGDOM. All in Christ receive GOD’S FREE GIFT of SALVATION but those who reject GOD’S GOSPEL PLAN the WRATH of GOD IS UNLEASHED globally in various forms written in BIBLE. God uses earthquakes, volcanoes floods, tsunamis, wildfires, plagues, hot scorching sun, droughts, famines, Tribulation birthpang warning before the final GREAT TRIBULATIONS. OBEY God’s Sovereign WILL and accept Jesus in your life in Jesus Name. 

JESUS WEEPS FOR SINNERS

In John 11: 35 Jesus wept over Lazarus’ death He subdued and then defeated at Calvary. Jesus loves to save all who receive Him and repent to be saved in the Kingdom of God. Christ’ significant victory over death is life in eternity with Him so does not want anyone to perish. Christ is seated at the Right Hand of God interceding for you for God’s mercy and forgiveness and His gift of eternal life. trio1 God is patient for a reason and a season as Loving Father to let in those who accept Christ. like anything with sell by date deadline time runs out as God’s timing is getting nearer. God is merciful, forgiving, wants all to trust Him to have confidence in Him as His Children to avoid hell so still pleading. As a Loving, Merciful father, Full of Compassion God warns, repent to be saved from hellfire.

trio10God loves you and wants all to be saved. Christ is crying over you to accept him, repent before it is too late to be saved from hell fire. Christ will reappear in great wrath eventually to destroy all His enemies, who will not let him Reign and over them. God will punish and deal with despiser of His Gospel in judgment.

trio6There is no exit point to transfer from hell into heaven because is it too far apart and too late. Accept Christ speaking from heaven with infinite tenderness and love to rescue the perishing before it is too late. Yet world promotes sin indulged flesh as lovers of pleasure more than LOVERS OF GOD. trio7Wakie! Wakie! If the trumpet sounds are you saved and ready for rapture, safe, with Christ?  It is not too late to choose to accept Christ to repent to change lifestyle. Signs and events are showing you need to be saved as the Child of God to belong to His Kingdom.trio8Printed T shirt’s advertise God’s love salvation message loudly and clearly to hear God. Your soul is more precious than all assets of world put together, priceless, paid for by Christ Jesus so repent and be saved. Life is going in a fast pace as world events reveal the end time prophecies coming to pass daily. trio11Repent means accept Christ and change your ways, be baptized, faithfully live for God, be light to the world. It is easy to obey and trust God, ask for strength and self-disciple to focus more on God as a believer. The Holy Spirit will take control of your life to guide, help and teach you to follow God better in the Name of Jesus. Come just as you are God loves you and will save your soul.trio12Christ will return when God decides time and moment. Only God Knows precise time and moment so redeem the times. Do not take time for granted because 1000 years is like 1 day in God’s Eyes and 1 day is like 1000 years to God. Are you in God’s Kingdom and ready for Saviour Jesus Christ’s in rapture? Red moon signs shows believers be alert.

ACTION FAITH & GOD WORKS

1551352632924-645837703.jpgFaith does the works of God in practical ways by applying theology to help others. And Jesus said whoever feeds or gives a coat, provides shelter or gives drink to the least in His Name is a sheep in His Kingdom. Faith in action works if the gospel preached with loving care to the people. Some think doing works of God earns ‘salvation’ some believers do not show kindness, compassion for fear of displeasing God become Scrooge. Justify lack of compassion by excuse is “works” but is this thinking correct? God commands farmers to leave edges of harvest for the poor and travellers to collect and eat for free. Other people help by donating to charity for good causes. But debate comes up because generosity to the stranger or others seen as lazy parasite. Some use excuse of sponsoring bad habit substance abuse, addiction to alcohol or drugs as reasons not to give. 1551352500856-1051422665.jpgSituations of the homeless approaching others for help is considered an offence to beg so most turn to other ways to get funds but risk their lives. Many people refuse to give them support except to help themselves. In Bible on numerous occasions Jesus preached and taught the multitudes, He fed them. As gap widens between rich and the poor qualified but unemployed without wages on the zero hour contract life is difficult for them. Some are trained as back up emergency stand by staff to fill in for absent staff on vacation, sick or on maternity leave. Tied to company, cannot seek other jobs in the interim, with bills to pay and rent arrears while employers raise their own salaries and bonuses. So the question is how to reach out to help others without judging them. This debate between faith as God works of salvation and salvation based on faith alone exists for centuries.1551353502361-1148304073.jpgThe Bible speaks volumes on this topic of salvation good works. Interpretation or proper understanding these passages is vital to our relationship with the Lord and relationship with others. Search for answers to this question in God’s Word says “Know, O foolish man faith without works is dead. Abraham our father was justified by faith works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar. So faith works together with GOD WORKS by works so faith is made perfect. A man is justified by works not by faith only says James 2:20, 22, 24.” Passage in James 2 proves faith alone is not good enough; we must demonstrate good works of salvation. It seems James is not teaching as Paul said salvation of faith alone in Romans 5:1. 1551352225546-1871068647.jpgTime and time again, Paul says works cannot save but faith is knowing Lord Jesus as our Saviour. “For by Grace you are saved through faith not yourselves; so the GIFT of God not by works so none should boast in Ephesians 2:8-9.” James 2 in full context, is not telling us to earn salvation but confirms that good works helps prove we are really true believers. “Faith by itself works is dead. Show me faith without works and I will show you faith by works in James 2:17-18.” When we accept Christ as our Saviour, there is immediate change. A sinner is immediately forgiven, washed clean of sin and restored to a right relationship with the Lord. No fear of consequences of sin because fully justified in His eyes; covered by the blood of Jesus Christ and His SACRIFICE on the cross. The old self dies to become a new creation says 2 Corinthians 5;17.1551352378675-1148304073.jpg15513524560901901586626.jpgWe are sanctified by blood of Jesus daily by process of constant learning to grow on faith journey. Cultivating the fruits of the spirit in Galatians 5:22-23 in serving God. And 1 Corinthians 12:12-31 reveals the intricacy of Body of Christ working together by love to bring Him Glory and share His Love and Truth in the world. Kindness, compassion and our love to others promotes work based salvation. Jesus moved with compassion in His ministry by His example so expects His followers to do so. Matthew 9:36; 14:14; Philippians 2:1-8; Ephesians 4:32 says be kind and loving to others as Jesus did to those around Him and even those who hated Him. Help and serve others but be not absorbed in works with improper motive. Not a people-pleaser by nature constantly looking for others to praise for good things done to get rewards. 1551352589680-1991211124.jpgJesus sees through ego or pride to earn His good favour by doing good things to others. Developing fruits of kindness and love is Godly works in life. Keeping the heart in check to ensure right motives to serve others. Knowing these things helps to save us so extremely important. The rich man in Bible missed heaven for mistreating Lazarus. God discerns the intentions of the heart and readily help us approach HIM in humility with desire to grow in faith. By our love others know we are Christians as the words of John 13:35 show, “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you love one another.” It is a great reminder of the responsibility to love others the way God LOVES us. God is LOVE so whoever lives in love lives in God and God in them …We love because Jesus first Loved us,” in 1 John 4:16, 19. 1551353298802-1148304073.jpgGod’s LOVE is unconditional, endless so let’s rest in God’s amazing LOVE and extend love to our spouses, kids, friends and strangers in need of kind words or help.  In Matthew 24:35, “Heaven and Earth shall pass away but MY WORDS Shall Not pass away. Psalms 119:11, “YOUR WORD I have I hidden in my heart so I will not sin against God and Joseph refused to sin against God. In Psalms 12:6, “The WORDS of the LORD are Pure Words, as silver is tried in furnace of Earth is Purified Seven Times.”Psalms 19:14 says “Let the WORDS of our mouth meditations of our Heart be acceptable in YOUR Sight O LORD Our Strength, and OUR Redeemer in Jesus Name. And Psalms 119:105 says “YOUR WORD is a Lamp unto my feet and Light to my Path!!! THANK YOU OUR FATHER LORD GOD ALMIGHTY. Thank you Son Lord Jesus and thank you Holy Spirit in helping us to love another in Jesus Name.
