Lord God Almighty…You do what You will with the powers of Heaven and Earth.  You call the things that are not just as though they are.  You merely speak, and it is done; the very words You speak carry within themselves the power to effect what You have spoken… immediately, completely, continually. [Dan 4:35; Rom 4:17; Ezek 17:24; 22:14; 36:36; 37:14]

10th ISRAEL: THE REDEMPTION OF FAITH

Sheltered by the Blood

By faith he kept the Passover, and the sprinkling of the blood, that the destroyer of the firstborn should not touch them.  When faith is ready for the first step in the life of a believer…the forsaking of Egypt…God meets it with His Divine provision, and faith finds perfect safety and rest under the shelter of the Blood.  The Power of the Blood of the Lamb has cleansed me from all sin, has conquered sin and death, has opened the Holy of Holies to me, has cleansed and perfected my conscience and heart, and has brought me nigh unto God.  My faith rejoices in the Invisible God and the precious Blood of the Lamb of God.  Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are joined together in a living union of oneness with Christ Jesus, because the Law of the Spirit of life through Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin and death. [Rom 8:1-2]

New life in Christ

By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land.  On the sprinkling of the blood there follows the entrance into a new life, the absolute surrender to be led by God in a way that I know not.  He takes me through every pressure, every trial, every affliction, all the storms of life, as by dry land.  Do not be afraid…I will save you.  I have called you by name…you are Mine.  When you pass through deep waters, I will be with you; your troubles will not overwhelm you.  When you pass through fire, you will not be burned; the hard trials that come will not hurt you.  For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, the God Who saves you. [Isa 43:1-3]

Prevailing power of faith

By faith the walls of Jericho fell down.  The difficulties and obstacles that I face in life avail nothing before the power of faith.  If only I would just learn, in quiet patience and perseverance, to wait upon God until He gives me possession of His promised rest!
I am to let my faith claim it; I am a child of the Most High God Who is well able to do all things, even impossible things!  I am called to a life of faith that expects and receives the promises of God!  So God’s rest is there for people to enter, but those who first heard this good news failed to enter because of their unbelief.  So God set another time for entering His rest, and that time is today.  God announced this through David much later in the words already quoted: “Today when you hear His voice, don’t harden your hearts.”  There is a special rest still waiting for the people of God.  So let us, then, do our best to receive that rest, so that no one of us will fail as they did because of their lack of faith. [Heb 4:6-7, 9, 11]

Friends, brothers and sisters…

There is one absolutely necessary preparation for every living soul on the face of this Earth, for the soon coming and imminent return of Jesus Christ…the one preparation that will irrevocably determine in which neighborhood you will spend all eternity, whether in Heaven or in Hell.  You must be a born-again child of God.  I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot be in God’s Kingdom.  I tell you the truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless you are born of water and the Spirit.  Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.  You should not be surprised at My saying you must be born again. [Jesus…John 3:3-7]

If you have never been born again,
or you are not sure whether you have been born again,
or you have been living your life as a lukewarm Christian and would now like to recommit your life and enter into a deep and intimate relationship with Christ Jesus in preparation for the soon coming marriage supper of the Lamb…
then I counsel you to get alone with God, read the solemn marriage vows you must make to become the bride of Christ and thereby be born-again, [https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/], and with sincerity of heart from within the depths of your being, acknowledge before God, “I DO.”

O Lord, you’re beautiful:
