The lamb & the lion lie together in our spirits, because Jesus fulfilled Isaiah’s prophecy about the future world in which righteousness reigns in His Kingdom! We have that Kingdom within us. It is our Father’s good pleasure to give us that Kingdom. So we have the lion nature to be bold when we have to and the lamb nature that makes us submit to the will of God for our lives, within us!
Part of the New Covenant miracle of the new creation in Christ, is a return to innocence. When someone Apostle Paul speaks of his former life he actually says: “I have harmed no one nor coveted anyone’s goods.” Has he forgotten his persecution of the Christians and the stoning of Stephen the first Christian Martyr where he stood looking after the clothes of those hurling rocks?It is an amazing quality of the blood of Jesus that presses a refresh button that resets our inner DNA to be born again into a new being that is aware of the past life, but not defined by it.
Christianity has a price tag. It means you must lay down your life for Christ’s sake. It costs everything. Jesus explained, ‘if you lose your life for My sake and the Gospel’s, you will find it.’ While you try to preserve your own life, you will lose it.
Pentecost is a day that marks the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and the Birth of the Christian Church. It is the 50th day from the first Passover Sabbath. 50 Days after Jesus became our Passover Lamb slain for the sins of mankind. It is also the 50th day after the presentation of the first sheaf of the Barley harvest in Israel. The Hebrew “feast of weeks” is a “day of first fruits.”
Jesus was single-minded to accomplish His mission on earth. It cost his life. James 1:8 tells us a double-minded man is unstable in all his ways. A stable mind does not stagger at the promises of God – like Abraham (Romans 4:20). Jesus promised to manifest Him to those who obey His Word. Do you want Jesus to reveal Him to you? Then increase your obedience to the Word of God.
The function and instruction that sets the doctrinal teaching and learning process in order, is called doctrine. This doctrine is induced by a delegate and ambassador of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, with miraculous power sent to eradicate heresy and establish the truth. The Truth is a Person, the Lord Jesus Christ.
The most faithful reminder is the Holy Spirit who brings to your remembrance all that Jesus said.
John 14:26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
