Only one way to obtained Favor in God’s Sight “A Visitation from the Lord”

What your about to read is the most Critical Truth a christian must ask GOD to place deep within your spirit it needs to be a core foot print that our lives are founded on, living live off this Footprint will see a life which is like a ship without an anchor and steering without a True North

EXERT FROM: “ABRAHAM” by Jimmy Swaggart

THE SCENE: Abram sits at the entrance to his tent in the heat of the day when the following event took place “A Visitation from the Lord”

And said, My LORD, if now I have found favor in Your Sight, pass not away, I pray You, from Your Servant” (Gen. 18:3).

Proving that Abraham now knows Who One of the three actually is, he addresses Him as  LORD, the same terminology that he used in (Genesis 15:2.  But Abram said, “Sovereign Lord, what can you give me since I remain childless and the one who will inherit[a] my estate is Eliezer of Damascus?”)

The phrase, “If now I have found favor in Your Sight,” implies far more than a mere formal remark or question.

Abraham had found favor in God’s Sight but only by and through the Faith which Abraham exhibited. To be sure, it was Faith in Christ and what Christ would do to redeem us. Again I refer to the fact that Jesus spoke of Abraham seeing His Day and, therefore, being glad (Jn. 8:56 Your father Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing my day; he saw it and was glad.”).

Favor in God’s Sight can be obtained in one manner and in one manner only, and that is by Faith.

However, when we speak of Faith, we are speaking exclusively of Faith in Christ and His Cross. That, in fact, is having Faith in the Word because the Word of God is the Story from cover to cover of Jesus Christ and Him Crucified.

Who Jesus is and what Jesus has done, and again we refer to the Cross, is where all Faith should be anchored and maintained.

This alone guarantees the Favor of God, and all else guarantees His Disfavor.

Abraham and Righteousness and The Cross and Today

EXERT FROM:ABRAHAM” by Jimmy Swaggart

And the LORD appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day (Gen 18:1 KJV).

ABRAHAM AND THE VISIT FROM THE LORD

Jewish tradition claims that this visit by the Lord to Abraham was on the third day after the Rite of Circumcision had been performed and was for the purpose of healing him from the painful consequences of it. It was on this account, they think, that Abraham was resting at home instead of being with his herds in the field.

Of course, this is only an assumption, but the fact remains that the Lord did appear to the Patriarch, the consequences of which will be striking, to say the least.

At this particular time, two momentous events will transpire, the first being the announcement by the Lord of the conception by Sarah. In fact, I think one an say without fear of contradiction that this is one of the most momentous occasions in history.

From this beginning will come the Jewish people. They will give the world the Word of God and, in effect, will serve as the Womb of the Messiah, which will bring the Redeemer into the world, which is what this is all about.

All of this must be done in this manner because Angels could not redeem humanity, and even God, as God, wouldn’t redeem humanity in this fashion. God would have to become Man, and as the God – Man, Jesus Christ, would then redeem the lost sons of Adam’s fallen race.


RIGHTEOUSNESS

Dominion had been given to Adam, which means that tremendous responsibility had been given to the first man (Gen 1:26 KJV; Ps 8: 1-9 KJV; Rom 5:12, 17-19 KJV; 1 Cor 15:45-47 KJV).

As well, in all of the doings, and I continue to speak of the Plan of Redemption being carried out, God would have to do things according to His Personal Nature. When many people think of God, they think of Him in an entirely wrong manner. They think that if God is All-powerful, and, in fact, He definitely is, then He can do anything.

While it is certainly true that He definitely can do anything, the facts are, He will not do anything against His Nature. So, to bring Redemption into this world, God would have to prepare a people who would evidence Faith in Him, even as He would reveal Himself to them, because He is a God of Faith (Heb 11: 1-3 KJV).

The end result of all of God’s Workings and Dealings with man is Righteousness; however, we have a problem here. Man thinks that he can perfect or concoct Righteousness by his own efforts, but, of course/that is impossible.

The Righteousness that God accepts, which is the Righteousness of God and, in fact, the only Righteousness He will accept, could only be brought about in a particular way.

As stated, ‘God would have to become Man, which He did, keep the Law perfectly, all on our behalf (Gal 4: 4-5 KJV), and then die on a Cross. This alone could satisfy the demands of the broken Law.

When we speak of the Law, we’re speaking of the Law of Moses, of which the moral aspects were centered in the Ten Commandments (Ex 20: 1-26 KJV).


THE CROSS

Without the Cross, the Perfect Life of Christ would have availed us nothing. In fact, without the Cross, His Healings and Miracles, as stupendous as they were, would have availed nothing. Only the Cross could address the terrible problem of sin and all of its effects, which it did (Eph 2:13-18 KJV; Col. 2:10-15 KJV).

The greatest shame of this modern age is the modern church little knows or understands the tremendous significance of the Cross.

To most, the Cross is just incidental in their lives and living for God. In fact, whatever credence that the modern church gives the Cross in any regard, which is very little indeed, is centered up in the initial Salvation experience.

Thank God for that. However, the sadness is, not understanding at all the part the Cross plays in their ongoing Christian experience, most in the modern church try to “live” for the Lord in other ways. What do we mean by that?


GOD’S PRESCRIBED ORDER OF VICTORY

As Salvation is “attained” by Faith in Christ and what He has done for us at the Cross, likewise, it is “maintained” by continued, exclusive Faith in the Cross, which is the way that we grow in Grace and the Knowledge of the Lord.

Having such little teaching in this regard, most Christians try to function outside of God’s Prescribed Order, which is always catastrophic simply because the Holy Spirit will not function in this capacity.

While He definitely will remain with us, He demands that we have Faith in Christ exclusively. This refers to what He did for us at the Cross, which will then guarantee His Function within our hearts and lives (Rom. 8: 1-2, 11 KJV).

The Lord works exclusively on the premise of Faith; however, it is always to be Faith in Christ and what Christ has done for us at the Cross. This Cross must ever be the Object of our Faith. The whole gist of Salvation is Christ Himself, but more particularly, it is what He has done


CHRIST AND HIS CROSS

If we try to divorce Christ from the Cross, which most of the modern church does, we then have “another Jesus, “which is always of “another spirit, “which presents “another Gospel” (2 Cor. 11:4 KJV).

The reader needs to peruse these words very carefully. We’re speaking here of God’s Prescribed Order for a victorious life. To be sure, He only has one order, and man has none and, in fact, will never have any.

Therefore, the Appearance of the Lord to Abraham at this particular time would ultimately lead to these things that we have been addressing, which is the Salvation of humanity in every capacity.

Charity Shall Cover the Multitude of Sins.

31 DAYS of WORSHIP: Day 9

VERSE of the DAY

And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.1 Peter 4:8

BELIEVE IT OR NOT, Satan is not the only one who likes to bring up the past failures of a believer; many who call themselves Christians like to do the same thing, and I can’t tell you just how wrong it is to do that.

Once a believer has asked the Lord for forgiveness, it is ungodly, wicked, immoral, and hurtful for a fellow believer to bring up that subject again. As Christians, it’s not our duty to constantly remind another believer of his past; it has been washed by the blood of Christ, and if washed by the precious blood of Christ, then we, too, are to forgive.

What right do I have to bring up something that has been erased, cleansed, forgotten, and forgiven by God? The answer to that question is, none. If a believer has already been to the Lord and asked for forgiveness, then I have no right to bring up that issue or hold it over that believer.

Too many Christians enjoy holding the past over another believer’s head, and yet they don’t like it when someone else does it to them!

The bottom line is, we must adhere to the words of Christ: “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if you forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your heavenly Father forgive you” (Mat.6:14-15).

This means that if a person has failed, then we are to forgive him. And, when we forgive him, then we receive forgiveness from our heavenly Father. However, if we fail to forgive others, then His forgiveness, which we all so desperately need, is also withheld.

Remember, God never works with what might have been; He works from what is. Man is the opposite; he likes to work with what might have been. But we should take a lesson from Christ, our example, and learn to forgive without ever again bringing up a person’s past failures. Being reminded of past failures not only hurts that person, but it also hinders the work of God. We must always remember that no one ever gets away with sin. When a Christian sins, and he goes before the Lord in humble contrition, the Bible teaches that God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins (1 Jn.1:9).

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

This, my friend, is the gospel.

2019 DEC 21 Desperation and Revelation

Bread Crumbs by Loren Larson

Why Is it true that desperation precedes revelation? When the course of our everyday life is moving along without emergency, we oftentimes fail to seek God as we ought.

But when a dire circumstance raises its head, whenever there is a threatening storm on the horizon, or when we experience a “pressing need,” that is when we finally look to God.

Oh, Saint of God, this ought not to be so! We ought to be desperate for God every single hour of every single day. We should live with the constant recognition that without Him we can do nothing.

Without; His assistance, His guidance, His grace, we are helpless! That does not mean that we should live in a constant state of despair or have a negative attitude towards life in general.

It means that the child of God must learn how to walk by faith! It definitely means that being desperate is that honest moment when we look to God in a state of absolute dependence.

Then He, seeing our need, full of compassion and mercy, is always gracious and answers our heartfelt cry.

Whenever we become desperately dependent, He reveals the required answer. So stay desperate for Him!

I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit; because apart from me you can do nothing.

John 15:5
