JESUS IS OUR ASSURANCE

Why wait till you hit the bottom to seek God? Why not make Jesus,your first option instead of your last? It’s always when people are at an intersection or cross-roads between a rock and a hard place, that they know who Jesus is,and try to seek Him. It’s the only time, they call on Him day and night, that’s the time they get spiritual and start to sing blessed assurance Jesus is mine, and that’s the time you will have to repent from your sins, then accept and believe on Jesus Christ, before God can truly help you.

Assurance is a positive declaration intended to give confidence. It is also a pledge  or guarantee made by someone; but times have changed, and people have changed and the meanings have escape clauses in them. For example; marriage used to be the ultimate assurance that only death will separate a man and a woman who God has joined  together in holy matrimony, but that has changed. Politicians promise to bring changes to the community, and when they get in nothing changes.

People used to have the assurance that when a door is closed, God will open a window, that allows us to climb out, without a scratch, bruise or blemish. What has happened to our confidence in our God who owns the universe, and everything in it? How easily we forget that Philippians 4:19 tells us that, “My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” In 1 Peter 5:7, His word tells us to cast all our care on Him, because He cares for us.

How did we ever allow the devil to implant doubt and fear in our minds, when God clearly tells us in 2 Timothy 1:7 that, He (God) never gives us the spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind. So now that you realize that fear is a spirit from the devil get rid of it, cast it out, rebuke it, and bind it in the Name of Jesus Christ, and loose power, love, and a sound mind.

I could fill this blog with assurance scriptures, but if you don’t read them, meditate on them, exercise or put them into practice what good is it. It’s like someone gives you a million dollars, and you never spend it, because you either forget that you have it, you just don’t know how to spend it, or what to do with it, so you just sit on it while you are hungry and in need.

Listen, it’s time to accept God’s positive declarations in the Bible,which assure us of His promises. For example: eternal life (1 John 2:25), He will add everything we need if we seek Him first (Matthew 6:33), He will direct our paths, if we acknowledge Him(Proverbs 3 :5-6), He will never leave or forsake me (Hebrew 13:5, James 1:5), nothing or no one can separate me from His love(Romans 8:38-39).Wow! This is exciting, and the Bible is full of assurances.

Thank God for His word that informs us of our assurances through His son Jesus Christ. Do you have this assurance? What are you waiting for ? Do you want it? It’s already paid for by God’s son (Jesus Christ) His ultimate gift to us. So just go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, and for further studies and information, go to www.riversofrevival.com.

All glory, praise, honor, and thanks go to God for using me to write this message. I pray that He will give you everything you need spiritually to read and understand His messages through the Bible, this blog or whatever means necessary. I pray for you to seek Him. In Jesus name, amen.

WHO HE IS TO US

Just in case you never heard or you forgot, let me tell you about the God I serve:

He is my deliverer, He is my strength, He is my King of Kings, He is my Lord of Lords, He is my shield, He is my fortress, He is my redeemer, He is the great I AM. Do you know Him?

His mercy is everlasting, His truth is enduring, His grace is limitless, His love is unconditional, His peace surpasses all understanding, His joy only comes in the morning, Do you know Him?

He is Alpha and Omega, He is the Beginning and the End, He is the First and the Last, He is one of a kind, He does not report to no one, He is God all by Himself, Do you know Him?

He is Jehovah the Eternal one, He is Jehovah -Tsidkenu our righteousness, He is Jehovah-Jireh our provider, He is Jehovah-Shalom our peace, He is Jehovah-Nissi our banner, He is Jehovah-Shammah our present help, Do you know Him?

He is Omnipotent which is all-powerful, He Omniscient which is all-knowing, He is Omnipresent which means He is everywhere, Do you know him?

He is my comforter, He is my friend, He is my teacher, He is my guide, He is my healer, He is my doctor, He is my lawyer, He is my interpreter, He is my savior, Do you know Him?

He said, He will never leave me, nor forsake me ( Hebrew 13:5, Joshua 1:5), He said, He is my light, my salvation, and the strength of my life, so I must not be afraid (Psalm 27:1), He said, all things will work together for my good, just because I love Him(Romans 8:28), He said, I am more than a conqueror, because He loves me (Romans 8:37).

He told me to trust Him  with all my heart, and don’t depend on my own understanding, and to acknowledge Him, so that He can direct my path ( Proverbs 3:5-6), He assured me that nothing can separate me from His love ( Romans 8:38-39), He told me He is God, and beside Him there is no other (Isaiah 45:5), Do you know Him?

He told me that, His plans for me is prosperity, hope, and a future ( Jeremiah 29:11), He said, no weapons formed against me will ever prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against me in judgement will be condemned(Isaiah 54:17), Now do you want to know Him?

He told me, to tell you that, “Every good and perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variables, neither shadow of turning” (James 1:17), and He loves you so much that,”He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” ( John 3:16), He said, not to believe the hype, nor lies of the enemy, because He sent His son, not to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved (John 3:17), He also said, that His son is the only way to Him (John 14:6, John 8:32, Romans 5:21).

Listen, this is what is written about Jesus,”God hath highly exalted Him, and give Him a name, which is above every other Name. That at the Name of Jesus every knee will bow, and every tongue must confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God (Philippians 2:9-11), He never forsakes those that seek Him (Psalms 9:9-10, Matthew 6:33).

Now if you want to know Him, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions, trust me it will be the best thing you ever did. I give  God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to deliver His message to His people, I hope it blesses you as it did me.
