Your Blessing Today…

Better than good greetings, in Jesus’ most colourful name!

I believe that the SUPERNATURAL is already speaking favourably in your life?

Your better than good life will answer SUPERNATURALLY in all remaining days on this earth, in Jesus’ most colourful name!

I rejoice to bring you the better than good news of the Kingdom, today, even as I’m persuaded in my spiritman to share with you a crucial subject in the successful fulfilment of your golden, glorious & royal destiny & purpose in Christ: The Essence Of The New Testament Church.

The Church of Jesus, the Body of Christ, through the life, teachings, suffering, death, resurrection & ascension of our Lord Jesus, is our heavenly Father’s grand design to reconcile mankind unto Himself, back to his original, default design as Adam had it in the garden of Eden, with comforts & blessings, before sin & the fall.

This is clearly expressed in 2 Corinthians 5.18-19 (Weymouth’s New Testament translation):

18 “And all this is from God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Christ, and has appointed us to serve in the ministry of reconciliation”.

19 “We are to tell how God was in Christ RECONCILING THE WORLD  TO HIMSELF, not charging men’s transgressions to their account, and THAT HE HAS ENTRUSTED TO US THE MESSAGE OF THIS RECONCILIATION”.

Also, in Ephesians 2.13 & Colossians 1.21-22, this restoration agenda was stated.

Ephesians 2.13(Amplified version):

13 “But now in Christ Jesus, you who once were [so] far away, through (by, in) the blood of Christ have been brought near”.

Colossians 1.21-22

(Weymouth’s New Testament translation):

21 “And you, estranged as you once were and even hostile in your minds, amidst your evil deeds”,

22 “He has now, in His human body, reconciled to God by His death, to bring you, holy and faultless and irreproachable, into His presence”;

Having established this truth, we’ll now look at how God is fulfilling the agenda in Christ Jesus.

The WORD OF GOD is the major instrument of accomplishing this His great work.

To make it easy & simple for us, I’ll just give us twenty direct, self explanatory verses of Scriptures on this matter.

Isaiah 27.6 says(Amplified version):

6 “IN THE DAYS AND GENERATIONS TO COME Jacob shall take root; Israel shall blossom and send forth shoots and FILL THE WHOLE WORLD WITH FRUIT [OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUE GOD]”.

1. John 21.15-17

(Weymouth’s New Testament translation):

15 “When they had finished breakfast, Jesus asked Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these others do?” “Yes, Master,” was his answer; “you know that you are dear to me.” “THEN FEED MY LAMBS,” replied Jesus”.

16 “Again a second time He asked him, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” “Yes, Master,” he said, “you know that you are dear to me.” “Then BE A SHEPHERD TO MY SHEEP,” He said”.

17 “A third time Jesus put the question: “Simon, son of John, am I dear to you?” It grieved Peter that Jesus asked him the third time, “Am I dear to you?” “Master,” he replied, “you know everything, you can see that you are dear to me.” “THEN FEED MY MUCH-LOVED SHEEP,” said Jesus”.

2. Acts 20.28(Amplified version):

28 “Take care and be on guard for yourselves and the whole flock over which the Holy Spirit has appointed you bishops and guardians, to shepherd (tend and feed and guide) the church of the Lord or of God which He obtained for Himself [buying it and saving it for Himself] with His own blood”.

3. 1 Peter 5.1-3

(Weymouth’s New Testament translation):

1 “So I exhort the Elders among you–I who am their fellow Elder and have been an eye-witness of the sufferings of the Christ, and am also a sharer in the glory which is soon to be revealed”.

2 “Be shepherds of God’s flock which is among you. Exercise the oversight not reluctantly but eagerly, IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE WILL OF GOD; not for base gain but with cheerful minds”;

3 not lording it over your Churches but proving yourselves patterns for the flock to imitate.

1 Peter 5.1-3(Amplified version):

1 “I WARN and counsel the elders among you (the pastors and spiritual guides of the church) as a fellow elder and as an eyewitness [called to testify] of the sufferings of Christ, as well as a sharer in the glory (the honor and splendor) that is to be revealed (disclosed, unfolded)”:

2 “TEND   (NURTURE, guard, guide, and fold) the flock of God that is [your responsibility], not by coercion or constraint, but willingly; not dishonorably motivated by the advantages and profits [belonging to the office], but eagerly and cheerfully”;

3 “Not domineering [as arrogant, dictatorial, and overbearing persons] over those in your charge, but being examples (patterns and models of Christian living) to the flock (the congregation)”.

4. Ephesians 4.11-15

(Amplified version):

11 “And His gifts were [varied; He Himself appointed and gave men to us] some to be apostles (special messengers), some prophets (inspired preachers and expounders), some evangelists (preachers of the Gospel, traveling missionaries), some pastors (shepherds of His flock) and teachers”.

12 “His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people), [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ ‘s body (the church)”,

13 “[That it might develop] until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the [full and accurate] KNOWLEDGE OF THE SON OF GOD, that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ ‘s own perfection), the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him”.

14 “So then, we may no longer be children, tossed [like ships] to and fro between chance gusts of teaching and wavering with every changing wind of doctrine, [the prey of] the cunning and cleverness of unscrupulous men, [gamblers engaged] in every shifting form of trickery in inventing errors to mislead”.

15 “Rather, LET OUR LIVES LOVINGLY EXPRESS TRUTH [IN ALL THINGS, SPEAKING TRULY, DEALING TRULY, LIVING TRULY]. Enfolded in LOVE, LET US GROW UP IN EVERY WAY AND IN ALL THINGS INTO HIM WHO IS THE HEAD, [even] CHRIST (the Messiah, the Anointed One)”.

5. Colossians 2.19

(Weymouth’s New Testament translation): “Such a one does not keep his hold upon CHRIST, the HEAD, from whom the BODY, in all its parts nourished and strengthened by its points of contact and its connections, GROWS WITH a DIVINE GROWTH”.

6. Colossians 4.12

(Weymouth’s New Testament translation):

12 “Epaphras, who is one of yourselves, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, sends greetings to you, always wrestling on your behalf in his prayers, that you may stand firm–CHRISTIANS of RIPE CHARACTER and of clear conviction as to everything which is God’s WILL”.

Colossians 4.12(KJV):

[12]Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may STAND PERFECT and COMPLETE in ALL the WILL of GOD”.

7. Ephesians 1.17-18

(Amplified version):

17 “[For I always pray to] the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, that He may grant you a spirit of wisdom and revelation [of insight into mysteries and secrets] in the [deep and intimate] KNOWLEDGE of Him”,

18 “By having the EYES of YOUR HEART FLOODED WITH LIGHT, so that you can KNOW and UNDERSTAND the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints (His set-apart ones)”,

8. Deuteronomy 8.3(KJV):

[3]”And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live”.

9. Matthew 4.4(KJV):

[4]”But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God”.

10. 2 Timothy 2.15
(Weymouth’s New Testament translation):

15 “Earnestly seek to commend yourself to God as a servant who, because of his STRAIGHTFORWARD dealing with the WORD of TRUTH, has no reason to feel any shame”.

2 Timothy 2.15(Amplified version):

15 “Study and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved (tested by trial), a workman who has no cause to be ashamed, CORRECTLY ANALYZING and ACCURATELY DIVIDING [RIGHTLY HANDLING and SKILLFULLY TEACHING] the WORD of TRUTH”.

The Church of Jesus is to be THOROUGHLY FED WITH THE WORD OF GOD, so that each individual member of the Body will Grow Steadily, Maturely & Fruitfully, being useful & used in the RECONCILIATION & RESTORATION agenda, not being deceived, cheated & manipulated by the powers of darkness & their human agents!

In our next post, we’ll continue.

Keep enjoying the SUPERNATURAL with better than good testimonies, in Jesus’ most colourful name!

PEACE!

JESUS IS LORD!
