O death, where now is your victory? O death, where now is your sting? The sting that causes death is sin, and sin gets its power and authority to cause death from the Law. But thanks be to God my Father…You give me the victory over sin and death through Christ Jesus my Lord! [1 Cor 15:55-57]
Blessed Jesus! I stand in awe of the Sacrificial Lamb of God! You came into this world clothed in meekness, and lowliness and humility. You loved me with an everlasting love, and You voluntarily lay down Your life for me, even unto death. No one took Your life, Lord; You were free to lay it down, and free to take it up again. You stretched out Your arms on a cross on my behalf, and declared, “IT IS FINISHED”…for all time, and for all Eternity.
It is Finished…The Eternal Power and the Eternal Worth of the Blood of Christ has guaranteed and secured that the eternal purpose for which God created me…to be joined together with the Triune God in a Sacred Covenant relationship…stands eternally fulfilled.
It is Finished…The Eternal Power and the Eternal Worth of the Blood of Christ has guaranteed and secured my status of eternal righteousness before God as an accomplished and finished fact.
It is Finished…The Eternal Power and the Eternal Worth of the Blood of Christ has guaranteed and secured my eternal union with You, Lord…joined inseparably together with You in an eternal living union of oneness as the bride of Christ in a divine marriage…flesh of Your flesh and bone of Your bones.
It is Finished…The Eternal Power and the Eternal Worth of the Blood of Christ has guaranteed and secured my eternal access into the Holy Of Holies, and into the inaccessible light of the Glory of Your unclouded Presence, Father…as my birth-right.
It is Finished…The Eternal Holy Spirit was indeed given as God’s Eternal Gift to dwell in me, never to leave me, never to forsake me…to be the Power in me Who continually guarantees and secures my capability to live my everyday life faithful to my solemn marriage vows as the bride of Christ in our Sacred Covenant relationship.
It is Finished…The Eternal Power of the indwelling Holy Spirit is now made continually available to me, Whose Power in me continually guarantees and secures my capability to live my everyday life faithfully within the Holy Of Holies, in the inaccessible light of the Glory of Your unclouded Presence, Father, in our Sacred Covenant relationship.
Blessed Jesus! I stand in awe of the One Who will be coming back into this world once again, no longer as the Lamb of God but this time as the Lion of Judah, arrayed in all of Your Majesty, Glory, and Power, to assume Your role and to begin Your reign on Earth as the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. In that glorious coming Day, every eye will see You, even those who pierced You, and all the peoples of the Earth will mourn because of You. And all those upon the Earth who never knew You…the rich as well as the poor; the kings and princes and rulers of this world, as well as their subjects and slaves; the famous and the well-known, as well as the unknown and the obscure…all of these alike will run to the hills and to the mountains in abject terror, to hide in caves and to cry out for the rocks to fall upon them…just to hide them from the face of the Lamb and from Your terrible Majesty! In that Day, Blessed Jesus, You will stand steadfast and immovable, with You right foot on the sea and Your left foot on the land, and You will declare with invincible Power, “There shall be no more delay!” In that Great and Terrible Day of the Lord, Father, Your Divine Son Jesus will manifest the fierceness of the wrath of Almighty God against all those upon the Earth who stand in rebellion to His Throne, and He will destroy all those upon the Earth who are enemies and usurpers of His rule and authority, until He has placed every one of His enemies under His feet. Then in that Day, Your will, Father, will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.
I stand in awe of the Rider on the white horse, Whose robe is dipped in blood, and on Whose thigh is written, “King of kings and Lord of lords.” I stand in awe of the One Who with one fell swoop of Your terrible swift sword against the multitudes who rise up against You, and their blood will flow…like a river…for 180 miles, to the height of a horse’s bridle! I stand in awe of Your terrible Majesty, Lord Jesus! I stand in awe of Your awesome Power! I stand in awe of You! Hallelujah!
Victory in Jesus:
