The Greatest Right We Have

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.

“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.” ~LMJ~

God Honors All Y’all!

“Today, no matter where we are, we have a real spiritual connection with the Father in the garden of His delight wherein He supplies our sufficiency in Christ in us as He continues to deliver and honor us. He {you and me} shall call upon me {God}, and I will answer him: I will be with him in {or through} trouble; I will deliver him {from trouble}, and {I God will} honour him– Psalms 91:15. WOW – God honors us – what a rarefied privilege bestowed on those who call upon God!” ~LMJ~

Direct Access

“Man on his own efforts can tap into believing and ascertain that there is some kind of power behind his believing, but he will never come to know the source of the power without coming to know God. Jesus said in essence that, it will rain on the just and on the unjust (Matthew 5:45), meaning everyone has the same ‘chance’ in this life to believe, for God’s spiritual Law of believing is equally available to everyone. But when God becomes your Father, you also have the blessed privilege to believe in God’s own power, because you will have direct access into the living room of the Lawgiver: God (Romans 5:1-2, Ephesians 2:19)!” ~LMJ~

Beloved, Now!

Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and {in the future} it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is– I John 3:2. You and I could spend all day just considering this first word beloved, we are beloved of God, the Creator of heaven and earth! All I can say about this is, what a privilege we have been given! You see, we do not become the actual sons of God at some point in the future because Beloved, now are we the sons of God!” ~LMJ~

You are Accepted in the Beloved

Written by Larry M. Jaynes:

The Epistle of Ephesians is the greatest revelation ever given to the Church of God, and believers collectively make up the Church of God – we are all members within the spiritual body of Christ. Ephesians shows us the greatest present ever presented to mankind and contains the doctrine (the right believing) of what God has currently given to us. Ephesians shows us how to conduct our lives within the framework of having received the love of God. The first three chapters of Ephesians lays out in great detail what God has given to us, showing us how we are permanently accepted in the beloved, and that we are endowed with the riches of God’s lovingkindness. The last three chapters are the prACTical side of the doctrine showing us how to utilize and walk within the magnificent graces of God that is upon our lives.

Ephesians 1:3 – Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

“Heavenly places” means all heavenly things, God has blessed us with all heavenly things and it is the Epistles that show us these heavenly things. Romans shows the believer that he was raised with Christ to a new life with God. Ephesians, being the second Epistle of doctrine, picks up where Romans ended and shows the believers that they are blessed in and with heavenly things because we are spiritually seated up where Christ is at God’s own right hand, for we are “in Christ.”

Ephesians 1:4 – According as he {God} hath chosen us {to be} in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in {His} love:

God Himself chose us before the foundation of the world with a purpose, and that purpose is that we “should be holy and without blame before him in love,” and this we are. The word “should” is in relation to the attitude of our hearts, the attitude that God desires that we should see ourselves as God does, holy and without blame, seated before Him in His unending love. When we begin to see ourselves in this elevated and esteemed state in which God has placed us, then life truly begins to take on a whole new meaning, knowing that we truly are blessed with all spiritual blessings immersed in the wonderful love of God.

Ephesians 1:5 – Having predestinated us unto the adoption of {God’s} children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

Predestination relates to our calling, our being chosen before the world began to become God’s children, and this happened because of the work of Jesus Christ on our behalf. Becoming God’s own children is the good pleasure of His will, which is freely offered to us in grace.

Ephesians 1:6 – To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein {God’s grace} he hath {past tense} made us accepted in the beloved.

God made us totally “accepted in the beloved”; the beloved is Jesus Christ, for we are now eternally in Christ. The words “made us accepted” means highly favored. These are the same words in the Greek Text that the Angel used for Mary in Luke 1:28, for she conceived the Son of God. We also have received the seed of Christ, (not for 9 months, but forever), thus we are highly favored of God. This is the greatest present that God ever gave to humanity, and is our joy and privilege to know that we have received the greatest gift ever given, and it is ours for eternity.
