The Glorious Dawn (Poem)


In the fullness of time, it was the chime of the heavenly clock that put a stop to the types of old and announced the Messiah’s appearing. 
Chosen messengers, flames of fire proclaimed the birth of God’s delight. 

Long gone was the night of preparation and the temporal wheeled away. 
The long awaited dawn appeared serving the reality of things flavoured for eternity.
Of Moses, Yeshua said “…it was I that he was writing about..”* Indeed he is woven seamless in the Torah, a fact of truth, without a doubt. 
The Menorah, now the Light of the World. The scroll of the Law, now the Word in flesh, its flaws to perfect.
Believe in him, the only High Priest, a Lamb slain for our sins that we may have peace.
The Way, The Truth and the Life is he. His grace and mercy we fail not to see.
Praise Yahweh! who dwells no more in tents, nor temples made with hands but in hearts men rend daily to him who died to set them free.

*Quote:John 5:46

HAPPINESS IS KNOWING… Christ has paid the ultimate price: It is Finished!

Christ has already paid the ultimate price! We are more than conquerors through him who loves us (Romans 8:37). There is no need to despair, but to trust him!

 As a believer in Christ, God says to you as He said to Israel “I have loved you with an everlasting love and with loving kindness I have drawn you to me” (Jer 31:3).
Are you going through anything now? Sometimes our afflictions seem endless, but as God spoke through the prophet Isaiah to comfort Jerusalem, his precious city, so too I bring this word of comfort to you, His precious one “your

“…warfare is accomplished,..iniquity is pardoned…Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: and the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see [it] together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken [it].” (Isaiah 40:2,4,5 KJV).

Yes, the afflictions of a believer are only temporarily and God intends for His glory to be revealed in our lives, so indeed if we suffer there is an ultimate purpose for the glory of God. 

When Jesus said on the CROSS “it is finished” (John 19:30) that is exactly what he meant! When he died for our sins and rose again the third day, our warfare was declared over. 

We only need to take hold of this truth and keep it at the forefront of our minds. We need not fret as long as we live in obedience to God’s Word. This is because God will always thwart the plans of the enemy, counteract the will of Satan and work all things out for our GOOD! (Psalm 33:10-12/Romans 8:28) To God be the glory great things He has done!!

Father, let it no longer be said…

Father, let it no longer be said “The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.(1)”
Let them of every race and nation be gathered in for your set time is now!
Heaven rejoices when lives put to the test, pass and invest time to labour for the ingathering of many a neighbour.  
Father, let it no longer be said “The LORD hath utterly separated me from his people…Behold, I [am] a dry tree.”(2)
Let them of every race and nation hear your voice and break forth into rhapsodies of praise!
For the Jew and Gentile together are one in Christ and never “a dry tree” but a “well watered garden” drinking from the well of salvation. Out of their bellies flow rivers of living waters for the healing of many a nation.

Poem: Unwrapped for God’s Glory

Tell the Story of how God gave His Gift to be unwrapped for His glory.

The Gift of the Son of God born unto us, Son of man given unto us so that every day is Christmas for some man, woman and child who unwraps the gift of God

Men who unwrap to be un-trapped to become wrapped in God’s glory. 

Thank you God for the story of Jesus who gave gifts to men.
The gifts of callings, the Holy Spirit so that every day is Christmas for some man, woman and child who unwraps the Gift of God
We praise God for men who are sorry, And released from worry to become His Glorious Story.

GOD’S GIFT : KING OF THE JEWS
1Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, 2Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him….
When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. 10When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
11And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh. (Matt.2:1,2,10-11 KJV)
You are blessed, determine to stay blessed!
Deborah Esther
 

“I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine” 

His only begotten Son He sent to prove His love for me. A Son so compassionate, 

he took my place on a tree, with nail pierced limbs and blood drenched scars, 

He gave up the ghost. I was with him in betrayal, mockery and shame. 

One with him in the grave, released by his power free to escape on his train.

I am with him in liberty.One with him in glory, with the keys of heaven and earth, forever to conquer and reign.

Free from shackles of sin,with a signet ring betrothed to my redeemer groom, 

forever to sing: “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine”

(The Gospels, Is.53, Song of Songs 6:3)

One Way Ticket to Heaven on the Metro

image

Riding on the London Metro
late one evening turning to the left,
I saw a man standing, swaying back and forth.
He ruffled his hair and shouted
“This goes to Euston Square,
how do we get a train to Euston!”
“Get a new brain Dr. Triston!”
a woman jeered.
“A rage filled man approached the
noisy pair, shook his fists and said
“one more word from you two and
I’ll leave you as good as dead!”

Turning my gaze away, I imagined Dr Triston’s
life what was, is and is to come.
I pictured him in his surgery,
bespectacled with nicely groomed hair,
busy and respectable seated in his chair.
He began the day in his surgery sober,
then off he went to the social bar
and then picked up this tart!

Rolling my eyes, I began to imagine
this woman’s seedy life
but suddenly I heard the doctor say
“a penny for your thoughts, me lady”. I shook my head nervously as sly as a fox. “Do you know Christ, who is God’s Son…?”
“Euston is on the Northern line”
I said cutting him short.
“God’s calling you on this main line through Jesus Christ His Son”.
I sighed and thought “He’s had too much to drink and sounds so thick!”
Then I asked “Dr Triston, who is this Son?!”

“My name is Marlon Jones, my wife
is Martha and we live for God.
Acting is my vocation;
tonight I played the part of Dr. Triston, who became a friend of Christ Jesus, the great physician.

Marlon testified of his miraculous
healing and his journey from
the occult to Christ.
He left a life of vice, went back twice but finally the prodigal
learnt what was right, and
now speaks of Christ with love and
obeys his commands from above.

He said “I present my Saviour
to you this day, but know, this is not a play and I have much to say,
’cause of time, I can’t but
tell a thing or two and hope that you would want to know him too.”

Marlon spoke a great deal and oh I felt such a fool, for I imagined he was a drunk and to be frank, I thought his Mrs. was one too!
I listened to his blessed words.
His voice was as the sound of one drunk, not with wine, but God’s Spirit and his eyes were diluted with tears of love.
“Could I a sinner, whose mouth is full of venom, eyes aglow with hatred and a mind clogged with filth, ever be like Marlon and his wife?”

As one who read my mind, Martha
began to say “There is no condemnation for those in Christ, for what He did for us,
God can do for you!”
I felt the power I knew was God,
like a mower it started to work,
for I began to holler “Lord Jesus,
I need you in my life! Come teach me to be holy and make me whole!!”

Martha and Marlon hugged me and
from deep within these words I heard:
“My precious child welcome to where your belong, for before your birth in Montreal, this day was planned, that you will
have your one way ticket to heaven on the Metro” .

Jesus said of himself “For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.”1

Scriptural inspiration: The New Testament /Gospels Quote 1: Luke 19:10 NLT

“1Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. 3For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh” (Romans 8:1-3).
