LOCKED IN THE BODY

LOCKED IN THE BODY

LOCKED IN THE BODY

Romans 8:1-2 “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.”

The Scene: a box representing a human body that has its soul and spirit locked inside that earthly body.

Man is a three part being; body, soul (mind) and spirit; created by God. Locked inside the body are the soul and spirit, waiting on Jesus to free them.

Romans 8:20 “For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into glorious freedom of the children of God.”

Romans 6:18 “You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.”

ONE BANDAGE AT A TIME

ONE BANDAGE AT A TIME

ONE BANDAGE AT A TIME

Jeremiah 17:14 “Heal me, O Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.”

The Scene : A box of bandages used to cover hurts.

Jesus is our healer, one day at a time. Sometimes we wonder, when we are sick, depressed or hurt in spirit, if Jesus knows or cares about our condition. The Holy Scriptures repeatedly say, ‘Jesus had mercy on the people and ‘He healed them all’.

References: See Luke 4:40, Matthew 8:16.

1 Peter 2:24-25 He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.  For you were like sheep going astray, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.”

Jesus knows our hurts, physical, mental and spiritual, at all times. He does care very much.

We, however, must be satisfied to wait on God for when our healings will come in His perfect timing, either immediately or over a period of time.

Psalm 30:2 “O Lord my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.”

OUR HEALER

OUR HEALER

OUR HEALER (Jehovah Raphah*)

Matthew 9:22 “Jesus turned and saw her. ‘Take heart, daughter,’ he said, ‘Your faith has healed you.’ And the woman was healed from that moment.”

The Scene: A nurse’s cap of old–representing olden signs of healers–those who helped us get well, along with doctors, hospitals.  At times, God will heal us supernaturally; at other times He will use the medical/counseling field to accomplish our healing. However we’re healed, we’re healed by God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  We praise the Trinity for our healing.  We look to God for our healing:  spirit, soul and body.

Matthew 9:29a “Then he touched their eyes and said, ‘According to your faith will it be done to you.’ ”

Isaiah 53:4-5  “Truly he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted.  But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.”

*God has healed:  Unger’s Bible Dictionary, 1977 ed. p. 912.  We look to God for our healing:  physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

HOPE

Psalm 25:3,5 “No one whose hope is in you will ever be put to shame but they will be put to shame who are treacherous without excuse…Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.”

The Scene: Very large cumulus clouds *– a reminder of  the coming of Jesus, the Christ, our Savior; for those who are in-Christ (born-again). And the three birds, symbolic of the Trinity:  Father, Son and Holy Spirit

1 Thessalonians 4:17 “After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.”

Luke 21:27 ” ‘At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.’ ”

*Revelation 1:7 “Look, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him; and all the peoples of the earth will mourn because of him. So shall it be! Amen.”

TROUBLED ZONE

TROUBLE ZONE.jpg

TROUBLE ZONE

Proverbs 4:14 “Do not set foot on the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evil men. Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn from it and go on your way.”

The Scene: Sign along the narrow path that leads to life eternal.

Christians, those born-again believers, have the Holy Spirit living inside of them–He speaks to God’s people, warning them of potential trouble.  Listen to His voice and do what He says when the message comes, ” You are entering a trouble zone.”

Matthew 24:4 “Jesus answered, ‘ Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name claiming, ‘I am the Christ, and will deceive many.’ ”

When Christians fall into these trouble zones we are called to pray for help. The Holy Spirit will lead us through troubled times.

Matthew 26:41 “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.”

Hebrew 2:18 “Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.” He, Jesus, is the rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. (See Hebrews 11:6)

Jesus and Father God have thought of everything to help and protect us before we were created.

SEALED

SEALED

SEALED

John 6:27 ” Do not work fo food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. On him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.”

The Scene: A bright shiny seal emblazoned with a sun burst representing the seal of Jesus–The seal He places on his people.

Ephesians 1:13 ” And you also wee included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit.”

And with this seal of the Holy Spirit we are called out, ” as a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that they may declare the praises of him who are called out of darkness into his wonderful light.” (1 Peter 2:9)

Romans 8:17 “Now if we are children, then we are heirs–heirs of God and coheirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his suffering in order that we may also share in his glory.”

We, those who are born-again, have the living seal of Jesus within us– Therein lies the truth of our eternal salvation and life with Jesus in heaven forever!

EVIDENCE TO ALL

EVIDENCE TO ALL.jpg

EVIDENCE TO ALL

John 3:8 “The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”

The Scene: Leaves of all kinds being blown by the unseen wind, on a late Autumn day. The leaves blew along the ground giving evidence of the presence and power of the wind; calling attention to the Holy Sprit, one part of the Holy Trinity that makes up our Triune God:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit, though unseen, has His effects through which we can witness His presence, proving that He exists.

Acts 2:2-4 ” Suddenly a sound like a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.  All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.”

The Holy Spirit, like a mighty wind blowing the leaves, teaches the Gospel of Jesus Christ, sending it throughout the world.

Psalm 104:3b-4 “He makes the clouds his chariot and rides on the wings of the wind. He makes winds his messengers, flames of fire his servants.”

The Holy Spirit speaks to God’s chosen through the inner soul and spirit, at times sounding like a quiet breeze blowing through the trees. He lives inside those who are born-again, guiding and helping them through their lives and witness.
