WELCOME TO THIS CHRISTIAN WEBSITE

AN IN MESSAGE FOR TODAY

The Cross was a major thing to be faced by Christ in order to become the Saviour of mankind. Everyone thankfully knows He negotiated it successfully. Every Christian must have the Cross effectually introduced into life where self is crucified, sin is cancelled and Satan conquered. Where Christ ended we begin and the cross is the place of regeneration and road to victory. All the old is put away and a new life and way of life become evident.

WISE WORDS

Fear is that major emotion that seeks to create a sense of dread and foreboding and can produce a state of inward paralysis. It must not be allowed to stay. It has to be dealt with immediately and expelled with God’s help by faith, prayer and the powerful use of the name of Jesus. There is no way that it can remain when this kind of action is taken.

SUFFERING THAT BRINGS ETERNAL BLESSING – Isaiah 53

The ancient prophet, Isaiah, prophesied and portrayed in word the actual death and sufferings of Christ 600 years before such took place. It would seem that he is projected in vision to actually witnessing the greatest death that every occurred in human history. In the portrayal, he indicates the incredible suffering of Christ. Christ died for the great purpose of providing salvation for all mankind from sin’s punishment and power. No other person in the course of human history has ever done such a thing.

The hymnist had got it right when he wrote; “There was no other good enough to pay the price of sin”. The prophet stated: “for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken” – “thou shalt make His soul an offering for sin” – v10 – “He hath poured out His soul unto death, and He was numbered with the transgressors; and He bare the sin of many.. . .” – v12. His sufferings were incredible and indescribable but it was that He might put away sin and its power and introduced a new order and realm of blessing.

Jesus turned the bad Friday into a Good Friday by reason of what He accomplished through His sufferings and death. We do not have to suffer the pain and suffering of eternal banishment from God’s presence and goodness, nor do we have to face the prospect of hell. Out of the worst of sufferings we now have the best of blessing: a restored relationship with God and the prospect of a glorious future.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

A BRAND NEW THING – Isaiah 43: 14-28

The Lord makes a staggering promise to His people at this point by assuring them that He is going to do something that will astonish in comparison to what He has done in the past for them – vv18, 19 “But forget all that – it is nothing compared with what I am going to do. For I am about to do a brand new-thing. See, I have already begun.” He had just stated what He had done in their previous history in the releasing of the nation from Egypt’s bondage. That had been an unforgettable experience for the past generation of historic note. This was but the starting point of much more.

What hopes lay within this utterance when it was desperately needed! The divine guarantee reveals that the Lord was able to excel anything that He had done in the past and that He was up to the present. In dealing with the up-to-date situation it would be different to His former operations but it would equally be successful. He was to free them from slavery, make a safe passage home and make sure they would be provided for even in the desert. His chosen people would be refreshed and honour Him. They would have testimony to Him like their forefathers possessed.

The Lord speaks into the immediate calamitous state of things and again assures His elect in Christ that He is about to do some new things in bringing renewal and relief. He is never short of ideas or ways or changing things for the good of His own. Realize that His purpose now for you is to generate faith in His Word on the matter and for you to be quickened in love and obedience to respond to His directives at this time. He wants these days to be exciting and adventurous for you.
