A Divine Journey Part 1

God called and you listened!

So God called and you received Jesus as Lord and “YES” Master of your life.

If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

blood-of-the-lambYou see, that word Lord means:

  1. He to whom a person or thing belongs, about which he has power of deciding; master, lord the possessor and disposer of a thing
  2. The owner; one who has control of the person, the master
  3. In the state: the sovereign, prince, chief, the Roman emperor
  4. Is a title of honor expressive of respect and reverence, with which servants greet their master
  5. This title is given to: God, the Messiah

SO, if this is not what you intended or meant then you did not give your life to the Lord, not really.

That’s right; you are attempting an equal or semi-equal partnership with the King of kings and Lord of lords.

Such IS NOT the bargain God offered when extending salvation your way.

Only He can be Lord/Master of your life for He is God!

God’s Word indicates:

Jesus dying on the Cross for our sin was a covenant formed in two parts:

Part 1) The Blessings half of the covenant where Jesus came, lived, died and was resurrected so that we might be saved.

Part 2) The Curses or Judgment half of the covenant in which the Body of Christ must endure the separation process called the Tribulation Period (a period destined to fulfill prophecy; Revelation 19:7) ; and then bring the Wrath of God (judgment) down on the unrepentant elements of this generation/world.

Here is the Covenant of Jesus Christ Part One:

  • God created humanity as a flawed creation so He could offer Himself as a living sacrifice for our salvation. In other words, God desired to create a family (procreate) making humans capable of becoming gods (Psalms 82:6; Galatians 3:24-25).
  • To fulfill His plan, God elected to become human – forming Jesus His Son, a protracted essence of the Father Himself, the supreme Godhead (John 3:14-21; Hebrew 8:7-13)
  • Jesus of Nazareth, God, then submitted Himself to the Laws of God in order to present Himself as the Lamb of God, a Living Sacrifice formed to bear the sin of the world so we (you and I) could be presented holy, unblameable and unpunishable in the sight of His Father, our Creator; Father God (Colossians 1:14-27)
  • Christ Jesus submitted Himself to the Father’s plan; the Covenant of Jesus Christ as laid-out in the Seventy Weeks of Daniel prophecy. Here is an excerpt from “This Side of the Whirlwind, The Coming Apocalypse” chapter 8, pages 91-92. [Daniel 9:24]
  • Daniel's Mysteries

Transliteration of the Edicts

Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy Holy City, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. (Daniel 9:24 NKJV)

 Seventy weeks (490 years) are determined (are set aside) upon thy people (for God’s people, the Israelites) and upon thy Holy City (in Jerusalem) to accomplish these six tasks:

 

{Here is what these edict, conditions Jesus had to fulfill for our salvation means:}

to finish the transgression

  1. on any level, to restrict the impartation of guilt as the result of a revolt against God or God’s will or laws, on either the national, moral, or religious identity of a person or persons

to make an end of sins

  1. to bring to a close the offense and its penalty—The potential offender and the punishment that follows are thus brought to a close, set free from the offense and its punishment. The wages of sin, being death, become placated or abolished. To make an end of sins is to make all to whom it applies free from all sin and iniquity.

to make reconciliation for iniquity

  1. to make the appropriate payment, which will placate any justifiable penalty imposed for any indisputable fault or faults; a payment is made, covering all debt

to bring in everlasting righteousness

  1. to bring between God and man a continuous state of harmony, effected through a perpetual state of justice and righteousness

The Lamb of God, Jesus, fulfilled the first four edicts listed above so that we might be saved.

contract picDon’t mistake these edicts for anything other than a contract between God and humanity because that is exactly what the New Testament means and is, the new Covenant of Jesus Christ.

You see, we have been on a journey which began many thousands of years ago.

What I have listed here is merely the broad-strokes of God’s plan for all of humanity.

What is really cool and amazing are the numerous and sundry methods God employed just to bring “YOU” to this point in His plan for your specific salvation.  You are special to God!

Think of all the people and prayers which were involved in your specific salvation story.

Yeah, I know: WOW, is right!

How many generations of family and friends did God have praying for you and your family just so you could find Jesus as Lord and receive your salvation?

You must feel pretty special about now!144000

Leastwise, you should.

Well, God’s plan is not finished yet and we have the Covenant of Jesus Christ Part II coming up next time.

So, don’t touch that dial!
