THANK YOU FATHER,SON & HOLY SPIRIT FOR YOUR SO GREAT SALVATION (1)
There is no greater experience that a human being can ever have in his lifetime than being BORN AGAIN, knowing that you have been translated our of the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of God, that all your sins have been forgiven, and you have received the gift of eternal life. The writer of the book of Hebrews describes it as God’s so great Salvation.
The Eternal Godhead knew in eternity past that their creation (Adam & Eve) would disobey them and sin, and so they must have met together and prepared a A PERFECT SALVATION PLAN, that would have it’s basis in the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ and the shedding of His sinless blood THAT HAS NEVER LOST ITS ANCIENT POWER Hallelujah.
In the next few weeks I celebrate 71 one years as a born again Christian, and my understanding of God’s so great Salvation is so much greater than at any time in my life. I have many regrets, that I was never discipled and it was never shared with me just what was released when Jesus died and rose again.
Salvation is so much more than my description in the first paragraph. the Eternal Godhead, covered EVERY aspect so completely to make it such a great Salvation. The epistles describe it as OUR INHERITANCE nearly 200 times, and most of the inheritance is AVAILABLE TO US NOW, so that WE CAN LIVE ABOVE SIN, AND WALK IN VICTORY, IN PURITY AND IN POWER.. Oh that this was shared with me. 71 years ago.
I don’t know how many blogs I will write in this series, but there are at least two verses I want to bring to your attention in these next two blogs.
Eph. 1:3-6 NKJV Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has BLESSED US with EVERY SPIRITUAL BLESSING IN THE HEAVENLY PLACES IN CHRIST, just as HE CHOSE US IN HIM BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love,, HAVINHAVING PRESESTINED US TO ADOPOTIONS AS SONS by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us ACCEPTED in the Beloved.
Please note all the statements I have highlighted, there is so much truth in these few verses. I could develop them, but I encourage you to ask the Lord to prepare your heart to receive this awesome truth, may it truly become a life changing RHEMA WORD TO YOU. I will also give you some other translations of these verses.
AMP.N.T. May blessing (praise, laudation, and eulogy) be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) Who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual (given by the Holy Spirit) blessing in the heavenly realm!
Even as [in His love] He chose us [actually picked us out for Himself as His own] in Christ before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy (consecrated and set apart for Him) and blameless in His sight, even above reproach, before Him in love.
For He foreordained us (destined us, planned in love for us) to be adopted (revealed) as His own children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with the purpose of His will [because it pleased Him and was His kind intent]—
[So that we might be] to the praise and the commendation of His glorious grace (favor and mercy), which He so freely bestowed on us in the Beloved.
N.I.V. All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son.
PASSION Every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realm has already been lavished upon us as a love gift from our wonderful heavenly Father, the Father of our Lord Jesus—all because he sees us wrapped into Christ. This is why we celebrate him with all our hearts!
And he chose us to be his very own, joining us to himself even before he laid the foundation of the universe! Because of his great love, he ordained us, so that we would be seen as holy in his eyes with an unstained innocence.
For it was always in his perfect plan to adopt us as his delightful children, through our union with Jesus, the Anointed One, so that his tremendous love that cascades over us would glorify his grace —for the same love he has for his Beloved One, Jesus, he has for us. And this unfolding plan brings him great pleasure!
MESSAGE How blessed is God! And what a blessing he is! He’s the Father of our Master, Jesus Christ, and takes us to the high places of blessing in him. Long before he laid down earth’s foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love, to be made whole and holy by his love. Long, long ago he decided to adopt us into his family through Jesus Christ. (What pleasure he took in planning this!) He wanted us to enter into the celebration of his lavish gift-giving by the hand of his beloved Son.
