ONCE FOR ALL

ONCE FOR ALL
ONCE FOR ALL

Jesus Christ is the ultimate high priest and He presents us with a description of the one sacrifice of Jesus Christ as far superior to the many sacrifices offered by the old priesthood.

ONCE FOR ALL
ONCE FOR ALL

Jesus said, “Sacrifices and offerings, burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not desire, nor were you pleased with them”—though they were offered in accordance with the law. Then he said, “Here I am, I have come to do your will.” He sets aside the first to establish the second. And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.  Hebrews 10:8-10

ONCE FOR ALL
ONCE FOR ALL

Hebrews 9 and 10 tells us something that is complete and permanent, something that has happened once-for-all in the one act of Jesus Christ, something that never was and never could be done by the old sacrifices. Think again of the impact this one, once-for-all, never to be repeated, permanent in its effect, sacrifice of Christ has:

  1. The redemption it obtained is eternal.                 (Hebrews 9:12)
  2. It cleanses our consciences.                                        (Hebrews 9:14)
  3. It liberates us to serve God.                                        (Hebrews 9:14)
  4. It sets us free from sins.                                                (Hebrews 9:15)
  5. It does away with sin.                                                    (Hebrews 9:26)
  6. It is established.                                                                 (Hebrews 10:9)
  7. It makes us holy.                                                              (Hebrews 10:10)
  8. It is permanently effective, finished and complete.                                                                                                                       (Hebrews 10:12-14)
  9. It makes us perfect forever.                                    (Hebrews 10:14)
  10. God remembers our sins and lawless acts no more.                                                                                                                              (Hebrews 10:17)
  11. It makes any further sacrifice for sin redundant and unnecessary.                                                                    (Hebrews 10:18)
  12. It means that we have confidence to enter the very presence of God without fear of judgment or condemnation.                                                                                                                          (Hebrews 10:19)
  13. It means we can draw near to God with full assurance of faith.                                                                                    (Hebrews 10:22)
  14. It means that our hearts are cleansed from a guilty conscience.                                                                       (Hebrews 10:22)

HEALING TRADITIONS

There are some Christians that claim that the basic nature of human beings is sinful. It is the human tendency to rebel against, ignore, or resist God’s will. This makes human beings susceptible to illness. In a sense, a person can actually own his or her sickness or take responsibility for it. So illness is often linked to life style, which has moral overtones. The word, “disease” says it all: it means “without ease” or stress.

CAUSES OF SICKNESS

There are two principal theological interpretations of sickness and healing:

  1. Sickness is caused by forces or spirits opposed to God out of sheer perverseness. The devil wishes to thwart the divine plan for humankind. So illness is not the fault of the sick person. This is the view that Jesus took 2000 years ago.
  2. Sickness is caused by God for different reasons. Sickness may be used to teach a person a lesson of faith. It may be used as a test so that a person can provide an example of faith for others as in the case of Job.

The sick person is understood to have earned the illness. The real aim of the sickness may be to change or moderate the nature of a person’s life.

The charismatic healers know very little or nothing about medical science and did not practice elaborate therapy. Most of these healers belong to the “holy person” category. They never ask for any fees for healing.

HEALING WORDS

HEALING TRADITION
HEALING TRADITION

There are no elaborate rituals or complicated techniques. The healing is done by touch or command in the Name of Our Lord, Jesus Christ in the same manner as Jesus healed. A healer may use a general prayer such as, “May the mercy of God, which is present here with us now, enter into your soul, your mind, your body, and heal you from all that harms you”  By Your stripes (whippings) Lord Jesus, you,             , are healed!  These last few words are the most important and they are based on the Bible: “With His stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5 and “by whose stripes you were healed.”                                                                                                                                              1 Peter 2:24

For specific healing, the words to use can be, “Send Your power right now into this baby’s ears and take away all germs or infection and make them well”. Some healers speak directly to evil spirits: “You spirit of disease, I command you in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, to come out of this boy,_______.”

THE HEALING

God is not restricted in any way. Addictions of all sorts can also be healed just as terminal cases of cancer. Continue reading HEALING TRADITIONS

HARDSHIPS: A CHRISTIAN SOLUTION

Trusting God Even During Hardships

Hardships Christian solution

 Ever think God was dealing harshly with you? We need to stop and ask ourselves, “What is the main purpose of a Christian life?”   It is to bring glory to God. We tend to lose sight of this when bringing glory to God involves some hardship, suffering, difficulty or problem in my life.  “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” I Corinthians 10:31

Believers sometimes falsely think that because they are Christians they should lead problem-free lives.  We may ask, “Is difficulty in my life a sign of God’s judgment?”  When we do disobey God we defy His authority and despise His holiness. But when we fail to trust God we doubt His sovereignty and question His goodness. It is always good to bow in prayer before God and ask Him if our troubles are due to some sin or disobedience in our lives. Prayer is the most tangible expression of trust in God. Because He is faithful to His promises, He will answer.”

GOD IS IN CONTROL, NOT US.

NEVER FACE THE FUTURE ALONE

You Will Never Face the Future Alone.

How worthwhile are you? You are infinitely valuable to God. First, God created you. Second, Jesus died for you. Third, he puts his Spirit within you. Fourth, he wants you to be with him forever in eternity. That’s how valuable you are to God. You are infinitely valuable to God.

Face Future Trust

There is nothing to fear when you know God is near. On your own you might drown, but God has said, “I will never abandon you or leave you” Hebrews 13:5 Some of you feel alone right now. You may feel it, but you’re not! You’re not alone. God sees what you’re going through. God cares about what you’re going through. God’s going through that situation with you, and He will help you out if you trust Him.

Face Future Trust

The ultimate test of faith is not how loudly you praise God in happy times but how deeply you trust him in dark times.Face Future Trust Continue reading NEVER FACE THE FUTURE ALONE
