The Word Is ─ He Is Risen!

“The Word in the believer’s heart resounds that Christ has surpassed the death of the cross and he is risen (Matthew 28:6)!

The Word of the day is he is risen (Matthew 28:7)!

The Word of the year is he is risen (Luke 24:6)!

The Word of the century is he is risen (Luke 24:34)!

The Word of the ages is he is risen (Acts 2:24)!

The resurrection is the very essence of the hope of the ages, for without it, man has no hope (Romans 8:11, I Corinthians 6:14)!! Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him―Mark 16:6. It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us―Romans 8:34! This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven―Acts 1:11. God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power―I Corinthians 6:14.” ~LMJ~

Bringing in the New!

“The Old Testament requirements have been made void in Jesus Christ with a new covenant (i.e., New Testament) by his own blood on our behalf. He was the end of the Law, and hailed the beginning of God’s super, divine grace to accompany our own believing faith (Hebrews 12:2), and our entrance into receiving all the fullness and righteousness of our God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth– Romans 10:4. Christ is the end of the law and if he is the end, then he is the end! Because Christ was the end of the Law, we are now given the righteousness of God by our simply believing in Jesus’ completed work on our behalf.” ~LMJ~

Come One, Come All, and See what Is Available!

“God has called anybody who will simply believe, whether they are of Israel (Jews), or of the Gentiles (unbelievers), and because Jesus gave his life for everyone, anyone can be saved, and walk into the magnificence of all that God in Christ has made available. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance– II Peter 3:9.” ~LMJ~

He Is Called Faithful and True (The Shorter Version)

Written by Larry M. Jaynes:

In Revelation 19:11 Jesus Christ is called Faithful and True,” because he was always true to the healing Word of God, and he was always faithful to his heavenly Father. In Revelation 19:20 he is “called The Word of God,” because he is the epitome of everything that God’s healing Word represents. As Jesus Christ is faithful and true representing the Word of God, he always made God known to anyone who would listen to him.

John 17:25-26:
-25:  O righteous Father {Jesus is praying}, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these {his disciples and Apostles} have known that thou hast sent me {for God sent the Word (Psalms 107:20)}.
-26:  And I have declared unto them thy name, and will {continue even to this very day to} declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

God sent Jesus Christ who is “called Faithful and True” to make known the true characteristics of God Himself. Jesus Christ continues even today declaring in our hearts and souls everything that the name of God means personally to us; Paul called this “the revelation of Jesus Christ” in Galatians 1:10.  The revelation of Jesus Christ can and will declare in our own hearts the love that God in Christ has for us.

Psalms 119:138 – Thy {God’s} testimonies that thou hast commanded are righteous and very faithful.

The testimonies of God are righteous – so is Jesus Christ as righteous as God, and as the testimonies of God are “very faithful” – so is Jesus Christ as faithful as God. This is why Jesus Christ cannot be separated from the Scriptures. He is the subject of the Word, and he was God’s plan of redemption on the level of humanity. God is Spirit, Love, and Light, but Jesus Christ was flesh and bone, blood and soul, sweat and tears, and was truly able to feel the full gamut of the living emotional experience that men and women live every day of their lives.

Jesus lived God’s healing Word as an example for us to follow, he was (and still is) “called Faithful and True,” Jesus continues showing us the way by blazing a trail that leads to the actual right hand of God. Jesus brought man back to the Creator of life and light through his life, his death, and his resurrection and ascension, for he was the forerunner to the right hand of God.

Without Jesus Christ we could not fully understand how righteous God really is, we could not believe how faithful God really is, and we could not fully believe to receive the promises promised to us in God’s very faithful Word.

Titus 2:13-14:
-13:  Looking for that blessed hope {Christ’s return for us}, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
-14:  Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

“A peculiar people” does not mean that Christians are strange people like some think, rather peculiar means that we are a people united together by our heavenly calling. We are those who do enjoy the good life and the promises that God has prepared for us. When we look to Jesus who is “called Faithful and True,” he will reveal to our hearts God’s “exceeding great and precious promises: {so} that by these {promises} ye might be partakers of the divine nature” (II Peter 1:4). Partaking of “the divine nature” is having and knowing that God in Christ lives within your life.

Your Labor Is Not in Vain in the Lord

I Corinthians 15:57-58:
-57: But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
-58: Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

“The word stedfast means to be fixed or settled as beloved brethren (in the Lord). The word unmoveable means to remain firm in our commitment to be beloved brethren (in the Lord). The word abounding means over or above the norm to stand and work with the beloved brethren (in the Lord). The word vain means empty, for our labor, as beloved brethren will manifest rewards – abundantly, and thus, we will not come up empty for laboring (in the Lord). God always blesses and gives us more than we could even ask or think as we stedfastly walk in the Lord.” ~LMJ~

Ephesians 3:20 (The Amplified Bible):*
Now to Him {God} Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams].
