John 14:26But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
John 14:16And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
Those who really accept the victory of Christ. Those who manifest the victory of Calvary in their lives, understand that they manifest this possibility.
Potential can best be described by seed. Within the seed is wrapped a potential which describes the Divine vitality which God has placed in each Creature. Some seeds never get developed, and as such never mature, nor fruit. The trend of seed-to-maturity-to-fruition is never accomplished by the undeveloped seed. The undeveloped seed takes potential to the grave, not because it died at birth, but because it failed to receive Light. Not knowing Light, it abided in darkness, groping and stumbling through the highways of life, never making the impact that God designed into it.
Why would I use possibility and potential, in the same vein? You ask!
Very good question, I am glad you asked.
In our world, a world that has developed a reliance on the physical manifestations of life, to the detriment of the spiritual, a world that would rather do-away with the Source of all Life, since current surroundings look solid and comfortable. It is a foolish act to burn the bridge, everything we currently rely on, will pass away.
just because one crossed over, and seems to be safe on the seashore. Guess what, one day we will need that Bridge. The Bridge is Almighty God. The Bridge is our Lord Jesus the Christ. In order to keep us in constant remembrance of this Bridge, Almighty God sent us the Holy Spirit, through the love of our Lord Jesus.
Matt. 19:26: But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, "With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.”
Though many have heard, some still have not believed.
John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Our Lord Jesus Christ, was God incarnate, He came to redeem (save) us, and restore us back to our old self, in a newness of being. Many, having heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ, have been called to an labundant life. And many, though they have ears, do not hear. Many have ears, but have not heard.
Gen. 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
This problem, our problem came about, with the fall of Man in the Garden of Eden. The fall made us less than who God had fashioned us to be, after He activated us with the breath of life. That was when He made us living souls.
Our answer is provided by what we find was the cause of an archetypical problem.
WHY DEATH, AND WHY THIS SACRIFICE?
YES, FREE INDEED!
Our victory as Christians, is entrenched in the legacy of Calvary, a memorial written in Holy blood, and written in time. Confirmed on that fateful evening, when the Lamb of God, the Light of the world was nailed to the Cross, that He may shed His precious blood, and eventually die for you and me.
There is a continuum shown in the life of the Redeemed man (and woman). A continuum which proceeds from the seed-state of potential. A continuum which continues into a state of possibilities, as unknowns and negatives are transformed, and manifested eventually as victories. A continuum which takes an individual to the mountain top where he or she declares, to the glory of Almighty God, “I am free indeed!"
The journey may be hard and long, but as the individual continues to thirst after the Water of Life, he or she will find strength, hope and inspiration along the way, declaring with all power and authority: I AM FREE INDEED!
John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
Light signifies Jesus’ glory, which is full of grace and truth.
We have the confirmation of the three in one: Father, Son and Holy Spirit our hope for making it through this life, and crossing over to a safe end in eternity.
Our Lord Jesus, came to reveal this Bridge and the hope. Below are some of His sayings, to confirm this:
Having prayed the Father to send the Holy Spirit our comforter, Jesus is making sure that we do not forget His promises. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. He is the Lifter of our head, He has given us abundant life. He who the Son sets free is free indeed!
Rev. 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb , and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death
In saying so, the redeemed are not merely mouthing words, as some do, but are declaring from the very core of being, a victory shout of whose they really are.
True victory comes with our testimony.
Ps . 107:2: Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;
Those who have received, believed and remain in Him whom they have received, need to declare their victory.
When Man fell, he in effect, became a dead soul. He lost his grace.
We have spoken at great length about Light, the spiritual light as revealed by the Messiah, Yeshua. Why did we do this first? Good question.
You see, (no pun meant!) darkness really does not have an existence, and without a solid point of reference it is full of lies. Spiritual darkness is therefore a product of the devil, known as the father of lies.
The Divine seed in Man, receives Light that it may continue its journey into Divine life. On this journey, he must always drinks of the resourceful water, which is more than physical water. He must drink of the Water of Life.
The Lord Jesus is the Water of Life. (an expression only found in the Book of Revelations, as written by John the Revelator) This Blog is written to coincide, therefore with the Bible study by PANORHEMA. It is a 4 week series on the Book of John.
Here are more scripture references on Water of Life…..
Acts 4:12 Neither is ther e salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Jesus is “the light of the world” and His followers will have “the light of life” (i.e., the truth that brings life; John 8:12).
Jesus, who is the light, the embodiment of grace and truth, also brings salvation:
John 14:6: I am the way, the truth and the life.
RECEIVING YOUR REDEMPTION
Many of us who read these pages are one of a kind. Having received the Lord Jesus Christ as our Redeemer, He is Lord over our lives, and therefore supposed to be held above every aspect of our lives. He is the Light of the world, the One who has called us out of darkness.
Let me speak to you for a moment, about Light. And in order to understand light more clearly, we need to speak about darkness. In "A Bright New Day: Gateway to Divine Abundance" (Ogunsakin, 2011), this subject is explored from a very rudimentary perspective.
You see, the physical light was created on the first day of the Creation by Yahweh (Jehovah). When we look at the sequence of creation, and the placement of this particular manifestation in the kaleidoscope of events, we find that a possibility, and a potential came with that Light.
The possibility that comes with the acceptance of the Light of the world (Jesus) is that which is pronounced in the following scripture text in Matthew. (The words ofJesus)
