Jesus, Our High Priest – D2

Hebrews 6:4-8 imagDay 2

Hebrews 6:4‭-‬8
Some people once had God’s light. They experienced the heavenly gift and shared in the Holy Spirit. They experienced the {goodness} of God’s word and the powers of the world to come. Yet, they have deserted Christ. They are crucifying the Son of God again and publicly disgracing him. Therefore, they cannot be led a second time to God. God blesses the earth. So rain often falls on it, and it produces useful crops for farmers. However, if the earth produces thorns and thistles, it is worthless and in danger of being cursed. In the end, it will be burned.

Good/Goodness is used 83X, goodly is used 2X.
In this scripture, it’s referring to the valuable or virtuous.
God’s word is most valuable to Christians because it’s our guide and instruction from God.
Basically, read the Bible. Respect God’s word. Live as Jesus lived while living as a human on Earth. I know that’s a tall order. However, His word tells us to be Christ-like. Hence, being a Christian. What else can you add here of how to apply this to your life?
Dear Abba Yah, I lift up myself and the readers of this blog. I pray that we can live up to Your standards and be godly Jesus followers. I pray that we can be the disciples You require of us. I thank You, in advance, for hearing and answering this prayer. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Passion Week Day 4

John 13:1-17
Before the Passover celebration, Jesus knew that his hour had come to leave this world and return to his Father. He had loved his disciples during his ministry on earth, and now he loved them to the very end. It was time for supper, and the devil had already prompted Judas, son of Simon Iscariot, to betray Jesus. Jesus knew that the Father had given him authority over everything and that he had come from God and would return to God. So he got up from the table, took off his robe, wrapped a towel around his waist, and poured water into a basin. Then he began to wash the disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel he had around him.

When Jesus came to Simon Peter, Peter said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?” Jesus replied, “You don’t understand now what I am doing, but someday you will.” “No,” Peter protested, “you will never ever wash my feet!” Jesus replied, “Unless I wash you, you won’t belong to me.” Simon Peter exclaimed, “Then wash my hands and head as well, Lord, not just my feet!” Jesus replied, “A person who has bathed all over does not need to wash, except for the feet, to be entirely clean. And you disciples are clean, but not all of you.” For Jesus knew who would betray him. That is what he meant when he said, “Not all of you are clean.” After washing their feet, he put on his robe again and sat down and asked, “Do you understand what I was doing? You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and you are right because that’s what I am. And since I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash each other’s feet. I have given you an example to follow. Do as I have done to you.

I tell you the truth, slaves are not greater than their master. Nor is the messenger more important than the one who sends the message. Now that you know these things, God will bless you for doing them. [Emphasis mine.]

[Notes]
Lead by example. Jesus teaches the disciples this. The master is no greater than the servant. The power of God is no more important than in this scripture. Jesus talks about how he knew he would be betrayed and by whom. He makes a point of it in him washing the disciple’s feet. Then, He tells them to follow His example so they may be humbled and blessed.

Jesus was a very humble man. All of his life, he lived to be our savior! He knew. He accepted it. Although, as a man, he struggled with what he would have to go through. He even asked God if it were possible to remove it from Him. He knew it was his destiny to become our Redeemer.

How can you be a humble servant of the Lord?

Pure Reverence

Passion Week – Day 3. Jesus is at Simon’s house. A women poured an expensive bottle of perfume over Jesus’ head. The others were disgruntled at her doing so and chastised her for it. They didn’t understand the gravity of what she did. But, Jesus did. He told them to leave her alone. She was showing him more love than they could imagine. Instead of waiting until He was dead to prep His body for burial, she was doing it now. This is pure revrent worship of God. How many of us can say we show pure revrent worship to God? I’d venture to guess, not many. I’m guilty as charged. My challenge to you, today, is to pour out pure revrent worship to God. Afterall, He died and rose again for each of us. He redeemed us of our sins. Our Redeemer 🙏🏼✝️🙋‍♀️🥳💜

The Temple – House of Prayer

Passion Week – Day 2 Jesus arrives at and enters the temple to find money changers inside and drives them out because the temple is a house if prayer. He, then, began to teach daily in the temple. However, the religious leaders & teachers weren’t happy about it. They began plans to kill Jesus. They wanted to stop Him. But, they couldn’t think of anything. The people hung on Jesus’ every word. We have to contemplate what the impact of this is. Why did the religious leaders want to stop Jesus so bad they want to kill Him over it? Why did the people hang on Jesus’ every word? What did the people gain from listening to and following through with what the learned from listening to Jesus? Let me know your thoughts on this scripture. Me? Yeah, Jesus was teaching of the benefits of turning from the pagan gods and surrendering to the One true God pulling from the old testament and current state of what’s to come (prophecy). People liked what they heard, why? Because Jesus wasn’t teaching about man-made ritualistic rules. What else? Your turn!

The Beatitudes and Superman

The Beatitudes Jesus teaches from the mountainside. We can live blessed lives. We simply need to trust, love, obey, praise & worship, adore, and fear (revere) God with our whole being. That’s not to say we won’t have trials and burdens. God uses our trials to build us up, strengthen us, and teach us, and to help us growth in our faith in Him. What’s stopping you? Stop believing the lies of the devil. Stop the devil of permission to hold you in his control. Then, surrender to Jesus, the Holy Spirit, & God. Why? To gain freedom in Christ through salvation. Be liberated from the devil, now. Accept Jesus as your savior. Satan has no power over God, the Holy Spirit, Jesus. In fact, by the sheer mention of “Jesus”, the devil crumbles and loses all power. Imagine, if you will, for a minute, Superman & Kryptonite. What happens to Superman when he is near Kryptonite? In fiction, it’s temporary. As soon as Superman is out of range of it he regains his strength. Well, as long as you continue to surrender and obey God, your weakness is turned to strength through God. Praise the living Triune God, Yahweh! What an awesome blessing!
