Shout for Joy!

Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart– Psalms 32:11. When we are glad in the LORD for His love upon our lives, then genuine rejoicing in the LORD will manifest itself, whelping up into thankfulness that we know God. Even David lived his life as one forgiven and who was enabled to shout for joy. We may rejoice because God has made us righteous, as completely righteous as God is (II Corinthians 5:21, Philippians 3:9), because of His Son, Jesus Christ. So shout for joy! We who continue to come to our God in prayer with thankfulness and with believing that He does indeed answers us, will (without a doubt) also absolutely recognize that God sees us as His upright in heart. The life that Christians can enjoy in knowing God’s healing will reveal to us life more abundantly. God sees you in Christ, as His upright in heart.” ~LMJ~

His Wonderful, Empowering Word!

“Hebrews 4:13 discloses, Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do. The two words to do are only one word in the Greek Text, and that is the word logos, and the logos means the Word of God, and according to the context, this Word of God is what He sees within the heart of His beloved children. God has given us His Word so that we have something uncommonly good and in common with Him, His wonderful, empowering Word!” ~LMJ~

Our Rights in Jesus Christ’s Name

Written by Larry M. Jaynes:

The greatest right we have is the privilege to use the name of Jesus Christ. We can use his name in prayer and be assured of a positive answer, and we can use his name in the giving of thanks for God’s abundance. Believing in the name of Jesus Christ brings great things to pass in our lives. Using the name of Jesus Christ produces “signs” of encouragement for and to the individual believer, works “miracles” of loving comfort to our inner souls, and energizes “wonders” that exhort us to the worthy endeavors and exploits promised us in God’s Word.

John 14:13-14:
-13: And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
-14:  If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I {Jesus Christ} will do it.

John 15:16b: – …that whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he may give it you.

Using the name of Jesus Christ in our prayer life is not a form of magic like saying “abracadabra,” and then some kind of magical trick is performed, nor is it sleight of hand for an illusion. Using the name of Jesus Christ, when spoken on the lips of believing Christians, unveils the actual power of God Himself so that God in Christ in us becomes manifested in our daily living. Jesus Christ has made available to us certain inalienable rights that can never change or be taken away from us such as our sanctification, our redemption, our righteousness, our reconciliation, our justification, and our continued forgiveness. These are the believer’s birthrights when we become saved (born again), for we have received everything that Jesus Christ made available by the sacrifice of himself, and now we are presented purified to our heavenly Father by Christ Jesus. Not only were we given spiritual rights and freedoms to walk with God, but we may also walk in Christ enjoying his accomplishments for us. In Ephesians 1 there is a prayer written specifically for believers:

Ephesians 1:16-19:
-16:  Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;
-17:  That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him {God}:
-18:  The eyes of your understanding being enlightened {and the reason for our spiritual “eyes being enlightened” with “the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him” –  is}; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling {to be with God for eternity}, and {that you may know} what the riches of his glory of his inheritance in the saints, {The inheritance is having the riches of “Christ in you, the hope of glory.”}
-19:  And {that you may know} what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, {It is God’s power, yet it is our own believing in our spiritual rights that release this magnanimous power.}

The exceeding greatness of God’s power is manifested proportionally to our believing in our God-given rights. The greatest right that we have is to use the name of Jesus Christ in our prayer life to unleash the exceeding greatness of God’s blessings and power upon our lives. In Jesus Christ’s name, we can continue walking in blessed fellowship with our Maker, and with our Savior, and with one another.

Overflowing with Abundance

Written by Larry M. Jaynes:

I Thessalonians 4:9 – But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.

The words “brotherly love” is the Greek word philadelphia, and refers to human love, as parents have for their children and children for their parents – it is the love of people. The Apostle Paul says that concerning philadelphia “ye need not that I write unto you:” because brotherly love is an innate quality of life, we instinctively love people with this kind of love all the time.

The second word for “love” in the above verse is the Greek agapao. This is the verb form of the noun, agapee, the love of God. Agapao is God’s love that He gives, it is charity in action. It is spiritual love, godly love.  God Himself is the teacher, for He teaches His own children how to love with His love, by His unconditional love for His children. Agapao is a spiritual quality of life that is only available to the children of God! “For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure” (Philippians 2:13). His good pleasure is always for us to walk in the fullness of His love, and He will help us into applying the love of God in our daily lives.

The more we see how much God loves us from His Word, the greater His love will grow in our hearts.  Then we can with understanding experience His love.  This is how God teaches us to love one another in crystal clear revelations and inspirations that will always build up, exhort, and encourage us even more into the ways of God’s divine love.

When we act on what the Scriptures reveal regarding the love of God, we are never alone because with God, love is not a one way street. He will be with us continuously inspiring us with His love so that we are always assured that we will never run out of the supply of the love of God. When you give God’s love away to others, regardless of whether or not they love you in return, God will still keep you overflowing in love, for God’s love is an endless supply.

I Thessalonians 4:10 – And indeed ye do it {do love with the love that God gives and teaches} toward all the brethren which are in all Macedonia: but we beseech you, brethren, that ye increase more and more;

The words “increase more and more” means to be overflowing with abundance. As we discover God’s love and begin applying it in our lives we will come to know the overflowing and abundant love of God upon our very lives because the love of God is indeed a vital part of the spiritual quality of life that we can continuously bask in and cherish.

God’s love, charity, is something that God through His Word can continue to inspire the believer with. The more love is applied, the more it will flow into the heart of your understanding, and the more God, as love’s divine Teacher, will be able to manifest Himself to your heart with His own love.
