Ressurection Day - "The Beloved Of The Lord's"

Sunday, March 23, 2008

The words; "Beloved of the Lord" really come to life to me on this "Ressurection Sunday" that the world calls "Easter Sunday"!

Why? It seems I have taken too lightly being called "The beloved of The Lord Jesus Christ's".

But today "Ressurection Sunday" I have tears in my eyes as I meditated on what an honor Jesus has been bestowed on all of us to be called "His Beloved".

Just thinking of the price Jesus had to pay in order for us to be the "Beloved of the Lord's" AND LIVE VICTORIOUSLY is overwhelming.

Reading in any of the four gospels; Matthew, Mark, Luke or John the account of Jesus' death is enlightening.

Just to see Jesus' love once more as I read the book of John's chapter that comes just before Jesus went to His Cross as I said was en-lightening.

The price Jesus paid to save us so we have the opportunity to flee death and eternal damnation when we make Him our Savior is awesome.

On top of all that Jesus Christ did to save us from hell He calls us his "Beloved" - And
Jesus made us his ambassadors.

If your not familiar with what being an ambassador is just do a study about how privledged an ambassador of a nation is in our world.

Then you will get a better picture of all that is yours because you are the "Beloved of the Lord Jesus Christ's"!

John 16:15 AMP

Jesus is speaking here and says, "Everything that the Father has is Mine. That is what I meant when I said that He {The Spirit} will take the things that are Mine and will reveal (declare,disclose,transmit) it to you."

Everything is ours as we obey God and live a life having a REPENTANT HEART THAT IS FILLED WITH LOVE (selfless) and the GOD KIND OF FAITH that says in the hard times of attack from satan or God's testing, "I stand on God's word in this situation.
For it is the only truth and I do not look at what is happening - even though I know it is happening I prefer to believe God's word"

We must know that we know that if Jesus said it in God's word then it is the only truth and all else is a lie. Therefore we stand in faith on God's word.

After reading the above scripture no matter what you are going through I bet you are a bit more excited about being one of the "Beloved of the Lord Jesus Christ's". Please read on - it gets better.

John 17:1-6,22,23,24

Jesus is praying in this verse:

"...He lifted up His eyes to heaven and said, Father, the hour has come. Glorify and exalt and honor and magnify Your Son, so that Your Son may glorify and extol and honor and magnify You.

2 [just as] You have granted Him power and authority over all flesh (all humankind), [now glorify Him] so that He may give eternal life to all whom You have given Him.

3 And this is eternal life [it means] to know (to perceive, recognize, become acquainted with, and understand). You the only true and real God, and [likewise] to know Him, Jesus [as the] Christ (the Anointed One , the Messiah), Whom You have sent.

4 I have glorified You down here on the earth by completing the work that You gave Me to do.

5 And now, Father, glorify Me along with Yourself and restore Me to such majesty and honor in Your pesesence as I had with You before the world existed.

6 I have manifested Your Name [I have revealed Your very Self, Your real Self] to the people whom You have given Me out of the world. They were Yours, and You gave them to Me, and they have obeyed and kept Your word.

22 I have given to them the glory and honor which You have given Me, that they may be one [even[ as We are one;

23 I in them and You in Me in order that they may become one and perfectly united, that the world may know and [definitely] recognize that You sent Me and that You have loved them [even] as You have loved Me.

24 Father, I desire that they also whom You have entrusted to Me [as Your gift to Me] may be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory, which You have given Me [Your love gift to Me]; brfore the foundation of the world."

There is no doubt that all Jesus has is ours and we truly are his representatives here on earth to those who are lost and on their way to hell.

The love wrenching thing about these scriptures we just read above from John 17 is when these things were spoken by Jesus He went to the Garden where Judas who was betraying him came with the soldiers.

YOU SHOULD KNOW THE REST OF THE STORY ABOUT THE HORRIBLE BEATINGS, ABOUT THE CROWN OF THORNS ON HIS HEAD TO PIERCE HIM AND ABOUT CARRYING THAT HEAVY CROSS WITH NO SKIN LEFT ON HIS BACK TO BEAR IT AS HE WENT TO A DEATH ON THE CROSS AT CALVARY - SAVING US AND TAKING OUR PLACE IN DEATH BY CARRYING ALL OUR SINS TO THE CROSS AND HAVING TO BE SEPARATED FROM THE FATHER - BECAUSE FATHER GOD HAS NO PART WITH SIN - AND GOD WOULD HAVE NO PRART WITH US [EVER] IF JESUS HAD NOT TAKEN OUR PLACE ON THE CROSS.

It is just amazing to me how AWESOME THE LOVE OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST is/was for us to do what He does/did for us.

When we are sick with infirmity and call on Jesus He heals us and so-o-o-o much more.
But if you call yourself one of "His Beloved" you know that I am doing my best in this letter to you to say now what I get in me to tell you.

Oh how I pray for you WILL continue to seek God and find Him more and more until the "Beloved of the Lord's are living in UNITY" - JUST AS JESUS SAID HE WANTED US TO DO IN JOHN 17.

The Church is so [RELIGIOUS] they miss having [RELATIONSHIP] with Jesus...yep, they prefer religion versus relationship and this is all not pleasing to the very same Jesus Our Savior who gave us everything we just read about in John 17.

Without RELATIONSHIP we will not have UNITY OF THE BELOVED so let us all repent and began to live the way our Savior wants us to by:

Reading God's word about three chapters a day and OFTEN reading Matthew, Mark, Luke and John to get to know Jesus like you do not know him today - nor do I.

But praying that we've days left to keep on reading, taking daily communion while we worship and pray in the spirit and win souls too.

The "Beloved of the Lord's" that really are His Beloved DO WIN SOULS.

We all know that souls will be our only treasure we WILL TAKE AND SEE IN HEAVEN WITH us from this earth. Isn't that something to think about?

Also did you ever think about the fact that ONE OF THE FOUR CROWNS IS THE SOUL WINNING CROWN AND AS FOR ME I LOOK TO HAVE THAT CROWN AND THE OTHER THREE CROWNS WHEN I SEE JESUS FACE TO FACE to give Him.

Please go to the soul winning script on the top of my JAW MINISTRIES PAGE and copy by printing it out.

I pray you read it to someone as you are full of the Holy Ghost with fire and the word of God on that script will get their attention.
So that the one-million persons you read it to before you go to be with Jesus will receive Jesus and comt with you too.

BELOVED, HAPPY RESSURECTION DAY FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS.

Love & Blessings,
