FOR THIS I WAS BORN

FOR THIS I WAS BORNFOR THIS I WAS BORN

Numbers 24:17-19 “I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near . A star will come out of Jacob; a scepter will rise out of Israel.  He will crush the foreheads of Moab, the skulls of all the sons of Sheth. Edom will be conquered; Seir, his enemy, will be conquered, but Israel will grow strong.  A ruler will come out of Jacob and destroy the survivors of the city.”*

The Scene: The Star of the East, representing the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

*Balaam was a heathen diviner that the Lord used for His own purposes against Balak, the head of the Moabites. “Then he uttered his oracle:  ‘The oracle of Balaam son of Beor, the oracle of one whose eye sees clearly.'” Numbers 24:15

The Star of the East in the oracle of Balaam occurred about 1452 B.C.–spoken as a promise of the coming of the Jewish Messiah. The Star of the East–God’s promise of His coming.  See Matthew 2:1-2.

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they might have life and have it to the full.”  John 10:10

                   SO GREAT A CLOUD OF WITNESSES

Hebrews12:1-2 “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles and let us run with perseverance (patience KJV), the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith.”

The Scene:The witnesses, including many Old Testament faithful men and women who have completed the journey, are now in Heaven.  We too, can know that we will join them one day.

Remember Me (One was left….)

Luke 23:41-43 “We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

Vision on April 22, 2013Luke 23:41-43

Jesus hung on the cross, along with two robbers, one on each side of Him. The one robber rebuked the other robber, then said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.”

In His moment of anguish, Jesus gave that robber grace, in His own anguish. That robber acknowledged his own sins, the other robber did not. The one believed in the afterlife, the other did not.

While in agony and pain, Jesus granted the request of the repentant thief, giving him comfort. This gives all believers knowledge, hope, faith, and trust that they too will be saved.

Revelation 2:7Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.”
