KING OF KINGS

KING OF KINGS

 

Job 4:18 “He takes off the shackles put on by kings and ties loincloth around their waist.”

The Scene: Broken shackles–the captives have been set free from sin and death.

Revelation 17:14 ” They will make war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will overcome them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings– and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.”

Romans 6:17-18 ” But thanks be to God that, though you were slaves to sin, you whole-heartedly obeyed the form of teaching to which you were entrusted . You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.”

Jesus paid a debt he did not owe, that all mankind could choose to be set free. And mankind cannot repay Jesus for the sacrifice He paid on the cross.

John 8:32 “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Hebrews 9:15 “For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance–now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant.”

ETERNAL FIRE

ETERNAL FIRE.jpg

ETERNAL FIRE

Deuteronomy 4:24 “For the Lord your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.”

The Scene: A vision while chopping wood; a fire, flames leaping high into the air, a fire with no observable fuel source.

The flame is a reminder to everyone, especially to His people, to not drift or be drawn away from Him, by thoughts and actions of this world.

Hebrew 12:28 ” Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire.”

Our God is complete unto Himself. He needs nothing to sustain Himself.  If We are in Him and He in us, we are complete.

1 John 2:5 ” But if anyone obeys his word, God’s love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in him. Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did.”

The Point: In these troubled times Satan and his helpers will try to pry away God’s people, mostly through fear and greed. We are to cling to God no matter what may come or go in this world.

“Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7)

STRANGERS IN THIS WORLD

STRANGERS OF THIS WORLD.jpg

STRANGERS IN THIS WORLD

1 Peter 1:17-19 “Since you call on a Father who judges each man’s works impartially, live your lives as strangers here in reverent fear. For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.”

The Scene: A carpet bag designed for light travel made from carpet material. An indication that one carrying such a bag was not of the local area, but from another place.

Strangers in this world are those who choose to follow Jesus the Christ.

John 15:19 ” If you belonged to the world it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of this world. That is why the world hates you.”

John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

1 John 2:15, 17 ” Do not love the world or anything in the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.”

I WILL POUR OUT MY SPIRIT

I WILL POUR OUT MY SPIRIT.jpg

I WILL POUR OUT MY SPIRIT

Acts 2:17 ” ‘In the last days,’ God Says,’ I will pour out My Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. ‘ ”

The Scene: Different languages that say, God love you and love God, a representation of what it was like on the day of Pentecost. (Translations obtained from several sources on the internet, including Irish, Scots Gaelic, German, French, Spanish, Dutch, Japanese, Hebrew and Aramaic.)

Acts 2:1-4 “When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed like 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.”

Acts 2:15-16 ” ‘ These men are not drunk as you suppose. It’s only nine in the morning! No, this is what was spoken of by the prophet Joel.’ ”  See Joel 2:29

The gift of the Holy Spirit is given to all mankind who believe in Jesus, the Christ, savior, and want the gift of the holy spirit and ask for it.

PRUNED FOR GOD

PRUNED FOR GOD.jpg

PRUNED FOR GOD

John 15:1-4 ” I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.  You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.  Remain in me, and I will remain in you.  No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine.  Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.”

The Scene: Pine trees with pruned branches lying on the ground.

The Holy Spirit quickened His Word, “Like these trees, My people allow Father God to prune them, as they remain in Him. For we know that the pruning is for our own good and will help make us more fruitful (ready for service to do the work God has planned for us.)

Pruning by God is the removal of our sinful nature.  That leads to spiritual maturity, thus making us available to serve our God and King, Jesus Christ.

FIVE LOAVES & TWO FISHES

FIVE LOAVES & TWO FISHES.jpg

FIVE LOAVES & TWO FISH

John 6:5-13 (Read)

“Why do you worry about the times in which you live? Am I not well able to meet your needs & the needs of all My people?” said the Lord.

The Scene: five* loaves of bread and two* fish in two straw baskets. The bread is symbolic of Jesus as the Bread of Life, nourishment for body, soul & spirit. He is our strength and our salvation. John 6:35 “Then Jesus declared, ‘I am the bread of life.  He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.’   v.58 This is the bread that came down from heaven.  Your forefathers ate manna and died, but he who feeds on this bread will live forever.'”

Jesus said to His disciples, ” I will make you fishers of men.” (Matthew 4:19). The fish symbol was common in Jesus’ day (for Christians) and seen in the Greek word ICHTHUS, which was comprised of  Jesus Christ God’s Son Savior (Ref. Augsburg Fortreas copyright 1990- Mark Bangert) Symbols of the Church.

*Bible number 5=grace; 2=union, Jesus

The point: The Holy Spirit impresses God’s people that He is in control and that He ultimately will determine the fate of  the USA & every other nation, and that God’s children are His and He will take care of His own.

He is our provider, Jehovah Rapha.

LIFE’S JOURNEY

LIFE'S JOURNEY.jpgLIFE’S JOURNEY

Isaiah 35:8-9 “And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness. The unclean will not journey on it; it will be for those who walk in that way; wicked fools will not go about on it. No lion will be there, nor will any ferocious beasts get up on it; they will not be found there.  But only the redeemed will walk there,”

The Scene: a bright yellow butterfly meandering along on a casual route.

“My people travel a journey through life just like my creatures.  Those filled with My Spirit follow the path I have laid out for them.”

Proverbs 15:19 ” The way of the sluggard is blocked with thorns, but the path of the upright is a highway.”

Proverbs 16:17 ” The highway of the upright avoids evil; he who guards his way guards his life.”

Psalm 1:1-3 ” Blessed is the man who does not walk in the way of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.”
