The Commandments And The Law | God’s Handwriting – Spiritual Reading.




Let me call your attention to the fact that God wrote on the tables of stone at Sinai as well as one the wall of Belshazzar’s palace. These are the only messages to men that God has written with His own hand. He wrote the commandments out twice, and spoke them aloud in the hearing of Israel.



If it were known that God Himself was going to speak once again to man, what eagerness and excitement there would be. For nearly nineteen hundred years He has been silent. No inspired message has been added to the Bible for nearly nineteen hundred years. How eagerly all men would listen if God should speak once more.


Yet men forget that the Bible is God’s own Word, and that it is as truly His message to-day as when it was delivered of old. The law that has given at Sinai has lost none of its solemnity. Time cannot wear out its authority or the fact of its authorship. I can imagine some one saying — “I won’t be weighed by that law. I don’t believe in it.”



Now men may cavil as much as they like about other parts of the Bible, but I have never met an honest man that found fault with the Ten Commandments. Infidels may mock the Lawgiver and reject Him who has delivered us from the curse of the law, but they can’t help admitting that the commandments are right. Renan said that they are for all nations, and will remain the commandments of God during all the centuries.



If God created this world, He must make some laws to govern it. In order to make life safe we must have good laws; there is not a country the sun shines upon that does not possess the laws. Now this is God’s law. It has come from on high, and infidels and skeptics have to admit that it is pure. Legislatures nearly all over the world adopt it as the foundation of their legal systems.



“The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is pure, making wise the simple: the statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.”



Now the question for you and me is — are we keeping these commandments? Have we fulfilled all the requirements of the law? If God made us, as we know He did, He had a right to make that law; and if we don’t use it aright it would have been better for us if we had never had it, for it will condemn us. We shall be found wanting. The law is all right, but are we right?



Excerpt From – Weighed And Wanting By Dwight Lyman Moody.



The Ten Commandments


1 And God spoke all these words, saying:
2 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 “You shall have no other gods before Me.
4 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; 5 you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, 6 but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
7 “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.
8 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.
12 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.
13 “You shall not murder.
14 “You shall not commit adultery.
15 “You shall not steal.
16 “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
17 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”

Exodus 20:1-17

What Is The New Birth | Regeneration | Being Born Again – Spiritual Reading

What Is The New Birth | Regeneration | Being Born Again – Spiritual Reading.



Many speak of the New Birth or of Regeneration without any definite conception of just what the New Birth is, and so are never sure whether they themselves have been born again or not.


As plain and clear a definition of the New Birth as we can find in the Word of God is given in 2 Pet. 1:4, “Whereby he hath granted unto us his precious and exceeding great promises; that through these ye may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world by lust.” 


From these words of Peter it is evident that the New Birth is the impartation to the one who is born again, of a new nature, God’s own nature. By being born again we become actual partakers of the Divine nature. We are all born into this world with a corrupted intellectual and moral nature.


The natural man, or unregenerate man, is intellectually blind, blind to the truth of God, “the things of the Spirit” he cannot see or receive. “They are foolishness unto him, and he cannot know them” (1 Cor. 2:14). His affections are corrupt, he loves the things he ought to hate and hates the things he ought to love.


A definite description of the affections and tastes and desires of the unregenerate man is found in Gal. 5:19, 20, 21. He is also perverse in his will, as Paul puts it in Rom. 8:7, “The mind of the flesh is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.” This state of intellectual spiritual blindness and moral corruption is the condition of every unregenerate man.


No matter how cultured or refined or moral he may be outwardly, his inner life is radically wrong. In the New Birth God imparts to the one who is born again His own wise and holy nature, a nature that thinks as God thinks (“He is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him”Col. 3:10); he feels as God feels, loves the things that God loves, hates the things that God hates, wills as God wills (1 John 3:14; 4:7, 8).


It is evident then that regeneration is a deep thorough-going change in the deepest springs of thought, feeling and action. A change so thorough-going that Paul says in 2 Cor. 5:17, “If any man is in Christ, he is a new creature (more exactly, Creation): the old things are passed away; behold they are become new.” 


To use the inspired language of the Apostle John, regeneration is a passing “out of death into life.” John says in 1 John 3:14, “We know that we have passed out of death into life.” Until we are thus born again we are in a condition of moral and spiritual death. When we are born again we are “quickened” (or made alive), we who “were dead through our trespasses and sins.” (Eph. 2:1).


There is a profound contrast between regeneration and mere conversion. Conversion is an outward thing, a turning around. One is faced the wrong way, faced away from God; he turns around and faces toward God. That is conversion. But regeneration is not a mere outward change, but a thorough-going change in the deepest depths of one’s being, that leads to a genuine conversion or genuine outward change.


Many an apparently thorough conversion is a temporary thing because it did not go deep enough, but regeneration is a permanent thing. When God imparts His nature to a man, that nature abides in the man. When he is born again he cannot be unborn, or as John puts it in 1 John 3:9, “Whosoever is begotten of God doth no sin, because his (God’s) seed abideth in him.” A man may be converted a thousand times, he can be regenerated but once.

What Are The Results Of The New Birth And What Follow’s When One Is Born Again – Spiritual Reading

What Are The Results Of The New Birth And What Follow's When One Is Born Again - Spiritual Reading Blog Post Banner Image

What Are The Results Of The New Birth And What Follow’s When One Is Born Again – Spiritual Reading.



1. The first of these results is found in:


 1 Cor. 6:19, where we read: “Know ye not that your body is a temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have from God?” These words were spoken to believers, to regenerated men, and they plainly tell us that when one is born again, the Holy Spirit comes to take up His permanent dwelling in the man and that the man who is born again thus becomes a temple of the Holy Spirit. It is true that we may not always be conscious of this indwelling of the Holy Spirit, nevertheless He dwells in us.


2. The second result of the New Birth is found in:


 Rom. 8:2-4, where we read: “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus made me free from the law of sin and of death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God, sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: that the ordinance of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” 


In the 7th chapter of Romans, we have a picture of the man who is awakened by the law of God which he approves after the inward man, which he sees “is holy and just and good,” which he tries to keep in his own strength, but utterly fails to keep, until at last he comes to an end of himself and is filled with despair of ever being able to keep the law of God outside of him, because of the law of sin and death inside him, which law of sin and death says, “the good which you would do you cannot do, and the evil which you hate and would not do, you must keep on doing.”


When a man is thus brought to a consciousness of his own utter helplessness and turns to God and accepts Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, whom Jesus Christ gives to him who dwells in him, sets him free from this law of sin and death so that by the power of the indwelling Spirit he is enabled to obey the law of God and to get the victory over the evil things that he would not do and to do the things which he would do.


Whereas in a man merely awakened by the law of God, “the law of sin and death” gets a perpetual victory, in a regenerate man, the “law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus” gets the perpetual victory. Doubtless many of you here to-day are still struggling to keep the law of God and utterly failing in your attempt to do so.


What you need is to be born again, and thus have the Holy Spirit come to dwell in you, and then to walk by the Spirit, and by the power of this indwelling Spirit to get victory every day and hour over the law of sin and death that wars in your members against the law of God.


3. The third result of the New Birth is found in:


 Rom. 12:2, where we read, “And be not fashioned according to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.” From this it appears that the third result of the New Birth is in outward transformation of our lives by the inward renewing of our minds so that we no longer are fashioned according to this world.


Of course the regenerated man does not at once manifest perfectly that of which he has the germ in himself. He begins the new life just as we begin our natural lives, as a babe, and he must grow. As Peter puts it in 1 Pet. 2:2, we must “As new born babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that we may grow thereby.” 


This new life must be fed and developed. It is irrational, and unwarranted by the Word of God, to expect one who has just been born again, and who is consequently a babe in Christ, to be as perfect in character as one who was born years ago and who has grown to maturity. But the moment we are born again [we receive in germ all the moral perfection that is to be ours when this germ is fully developed within us and comes to its perfect manifestation.


4. The fourth result of the New Birth we find in:


1 John 5:1, “Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is begotten of God.” The fourth result of being born again is that the regenerated man believes that Jesus is the Christ. Of course this faith that comes from the New Birth is a real faith. The faith that John here speaks of is not a faith that is a mere opinion, but that real faith that Jesus is the anointed of God that leads us to enthrone Jesus as King in our lives.


If you are not making Jesus King in your heart and life you have not been born again. But if you are making Jesus King in your heart and life and absolute ruler of your thoughts and conduct, then you are born again, for “Whosoever believeth that Jesus is Christ is begotten of God.”


5. The fifth result of being born again we find three verses further down in this same chapter:


1 John 5:4: “For whatsoever is begotten of God overcometh the world.” The fifth result of being born of God is that the one thus born again overcomes the world. The world is at variance with God, “The whole world lieth in the Evil One” (1 John 5:19). It is under the dominion of the Evil One, ruled by his ambitions and ideas.


The world is at variance with God in its commercial life, social life, domestic life, and all the phases of intellectual life and educational life, and is constantly [exercising a power over each of us to draw us into disobedience to God (see 1 John 5:3); but the one born of God by the power of the faith that comes through being born again, gets the victory over the world. He gets the victory over the world’s ideas, purposes, plans, ambitions. He gets the victory over the world in his personal life, domestic life, commercial life, political life, intellectual life every day.


6. The sixth result of being born of God is found in:


1 John 3:9, R. V.“Whosoever is begotten of God doeth no sin; because his (i.e., God’s) seed abideth in him: and he cannot sin (rather, cannot be sinning), because he is begotten of God.” The sixth result, then, of being born of God is that in the one born of God the seed of God remains; and, therefore, the one born of God is not making a practice of sin. 


Some one will ask, just what does this mean? It means exactly what it says, if we look carefully at the exact force of the words used and give due emphasis to the tense of the verbs used. First of all, let us look at the exact force of the word translated “Sin.” What does sin mean? John himself has been careful to define it in the verse itself and in the context in which our verse is found.


The first thing that is evident from 1 John 3:9 is that sin is a something done, not merely a something left undone, and not merely sinful thoughts and desires. What kind of a something done it is defined five verses back in verse 4. “Everyone that doeth sin doeth also lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness.” 


Sin here by John’s own definition (and we have no right to bring the definition of any one else into the verse we are studying) is “lawlessness,” i.e., such acts as reveal conscious disregard for the will of God as revealed in His word. So we see that sin, as used here, means, a conscious intentional violation of the law of God.


The regenerate man will not be doing that which he knows to be contrary to the will of God. He may do that which is contrary to God’s will, but which he does not know to be contrary to God’s will. It is not therefore “lawlessness.” Perhaps he ought to have known that it was contrary to God’s will and when he is led to see that it is, he will confess his guilt to God.


Furthermore, we should note the tense of the verb used in this verse. It is the present tense which denotes progressive or continuous action. A literal translation of the passage would be, “Everyone begotten out of God, sin is not doing, because His (God’s) seed in him is remaining; and he cannot be sinning, because out of God he is begotten.”


It is not taught here that one born of God never sins in a single act, but it is taught that he is not going on sinning, not making a practice of sin. Of what he is making a practice appears in 1 John 2:29, “If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that everyone also that doeth righteousness is begotten of him.” 


The result, then, of being born again is that the one begotten again does not go on consciously day after day [doing that which he knows to be contrary to the will of God, but he does make a practice of “doing righteousness,” i.e., doing that which is conformed to the will of God as revealed in His Word. The new nature imparted in regeneration renders the continuous practice of sin impossible and renders the practice of righteousness inevitable.


7. The seventh result of the New Birth is found in:


1 John 3:14, R. V.“We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not abideth in death.” The seventh result of being born again is that we love the brethren. We should note carefully what the thought of “love” is as brought out in the context. It is not love as a mere sentiment.


It is love in that higher and deeper sense of a desire for and delight in the welfare of others, the sort of love that leads us to make sacrifices for those we love, or as we read further down in this same chapter, verses 16-18, “Hereby know we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoso hath this world’s goods, and behold his brother in need, and shutteth up his compassion from him, how doth the love of God abide in him? My little children, let us not love in word neither with the tongue; but in deed and truth.” 


This makes it very evident that what the Holy Spirit here means by love is not a mere affection or fondness for others, not a mere delight in their society; it means that deep and genuine interest in [their welfare that leads us to go down into our pockets when they are in need and supply their need; it leads us to sacrifice our own interest for the sake of their interests even to the point of laying down our lives for them. 


The objects of this love are “the brethren,” i.e., all those who are begotten of God, as we read in 1 John 5:1, “Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is begotten of God: and whosoever loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.” 


Any man who is born again will love every other man who is begotten of God. The other one who is begotten of God may be an American or a German, or an Englishman, or a negro, or a Chinaman, or an Indian. He may be educated or uneducated; but he is a child of God and a brother, and as such if you are born of God, he will be the object of your love. This is a searching test of whether or not one is born of God.


8. The final result of being born of God that we will consider this morning is found in:


2 Cor. 5:17, R. V.“Wherefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature (creation): the old things are passed away, behold, they are become new.” 


The ninth result of being born again, including all the other results that we have been considering, is that in the regenerate man, old things are passed away, they are become new. In the place of the old ideas, old affection, old purposes, old choices, are new ideas, new affections, new purposes, new choices.

What Is The Importance Of The New Birth | Regeneration | Being Born Again – Spiritual Reading.



For just a few moments let us look at the necessity of the New Birth. This is set forth in one of our texts and in the verses following, 1 John 3:5, 6: “Verily, Verily, I say unto you, except a man be born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is Spirit.” 


We see here that the New Birth is a universal necessity, and we see why it is a necessity. The words translated, “Except a man be born,” etc. more literally translated would be, “If any man be not born out of water and Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.”


And why he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God the following verse says, and that is because all that one gets by natural generation is “Flesh” and the Kingdom of God is spiritual, and, therefore, to enter it one must be born of the Spirit. No matter how refined and intelligent our ancestry, no matter how godly our fathers and mothers may have been, we do not get the Holy Spirit from them.


All we get is “flesh.” It may be refined flesh, moral flesh, upright and very attractive flesh, but it is flesh; and “they that are in the flesh cannot please God,” nor “inherit the kingdom of God.” The flesh is incapable of improvement. No more “can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots” than can a man who is unregenerate attain to a life pleasing to God. (See Jer. 13:23.) He must be born again. 


The necessity is also absolute and imperative, so absolute and imperative that Jesus said to Nicodemus, though he was a man of most exemplary morality, a man of high moral and spiritual education, a teacher of Israel, a leader in the religious life of Israel, “You must be born again.” (John 3:7.) Nothing else will take the place of the New Birth.


Men are trying to substitute education, morality, religion, orthodoxy, baptism, outward reform, “new thought,” “theosophy” or the knowledge of God, and other such things, for the New Birth; but none of these, or all of them together, are sufficient, you must be born again. There is absolutely no exception to this rule. As Jesus says in John 3:3, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except any man be born from above, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

What Is The Fact Of The Resurrection Of The Body Of Christ And Our Bodies – Spiritual Reading

What Is The Fact Of The Resurrection Of The Body Of Christ And Our Bodies - Spiritual Reading Blog Post Banner Image

What Is The Fact Of The Resurrection Of The Body Of Christ And Our Bodies – Spiritual Reading.



Turn first, please, to II Tim. 2:8, “Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David, was raised from the dead, according to my gospel.” Here Paul explicitly declares that Jesus Christ was raised from the dead according to the gospel which he preached. Now what was raised? Certainly not His soul. That did not die. Turning to Acts 2:27-31, we find that the soul of the Lord Jesus went into Hades, the abode of the dead.


These are Peter’s words, spoken on the day of Pentecost, there recorded, “Because thou wilt not leave my soul unto Hades, neither wilt thou give thy holy one to see corruption (i.e., in His body). Thou madest known unto me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of gladness with thy countenance. Brethren, I may say unto you freely of the patriarch David, that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us unto this day. Being therefore a prophet, and knowing that God has sworn with an oath to him that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne; he foreseeing this spake of the resurrection of Christ, that neither was he left unto Hades, nor did his flesh see corruption. This Jesus did God raise up, whereof we all are witnesses.” 


Peter here declares that the soul of Jesus went to Hades and that it was “His flesh,” i.e., His body, that was kept from corruption and afterwards raised. Turning now to I Cor. 15:3, 4, we read these words of Paul: “For we delivered unto you first of all that which also I received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that he was buried; and that he hath been raised on the third day according to the scriptures.” 


Paul here declares that Jesus Christ died and was buried and was raised. What was raised? Paul says, that that which “was buried” was raised. But what was buried? Not the soul of the Lord Jesus, but His body. Peter makes this even plainer, if possible, in I Pet. 3:18-20: “Because Christ also suffered for our sins once, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God; being put to death in the flesh, but quickened in the spirit; in which also he went and preached to the spirits in prison; which aforetime were disobedient, when the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah.” 


These words clearly mean that it was the body of Jesus that was put to death, but that the spirit still lived and went into Hades; so it was the body that was raised and to which the spirit that had not died or become unconscious came back. I Cor. 15:12-19 removes all possibility of doubt on this point on the part of any man who goes to the Bible to find out what it actually teaches and not merely to see how he can twist and distort it to fit it into his own preconceived opinions.


Paul’s Spirit-given words here read, “Now if Christ be preached that he hath been raised from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead? (Mark, not no immortality of the soul, but no resurrection of the dead.) But if there is no resurrection of the dead neither hath Christ been raised: and if Christ hath not been raised, then is our preaching vain, your faith also is vain. Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we witness of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up if so be that the dead are not raised. For if the dead are not raised neither hath Christ been raised: and if Christ hath not been raised, your faith is vain, ye are yet in your sins. Then they also that have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are of all men most pitiable.” 


There is no honest mistaking the plain meaning of these words: by the “resurrection of the dead” Paul plainly means a resurrection of the body; and in the whole chapter, beyond an honest doubt, he is not talking about the immortality of the soul, but the resurrection of the body. The whole argument turns on that, and Paul here clearly says if the body of Jesus was not raised, then the whole Christian system is a sham and our faith vain and that we Christians of all men are most to be pitied.


For if the body of Jesus was not raised, and if our bodies are not to be raised, then we Christians are making tremendous sacrifices for a lie. Paul says further that if our bodies are not to be raised, then Christ’s body has not been raised and Christianity is a humbug. Christianity as taught in the New Testament stands or falls with the resurrection of the body of Jesus and the resurrection of our bodies.


There is no room in this argument of Paul’s for “Pastor” Russell’s doctrine, that the resurrection of Jesus Christ was not a resurrection of the body that was laid in the grave, the body that was crucified, and that the body of Jesus Christ, the body that was laid in the sepulchre, was carried away and preserved somewhere, or else dissolved into gases. Paul says here, if the body that was laid in the sepulchre was not raised, “then is our preaching vain” and your “faith also is vain.”


In Luke 24:5, 6, the angels at the tomb from which the body of Jesus had disappeared are recorded as saying to the women who were seeking the body of Jesus to embalm it, “Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here but is risen.” Now what were the women seeking? The body of Jesus to embalm it, and the angels say that what they were seeking was not there but was risen, had been raised.


Furthermore, in the remainder of the 6th verse and verse 7, they say:“Remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, saying that the Son of Man must be delivered up into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.” Here they told the women plainly that what was crucified, which of course was the body of Jesus, was raised. If the actual, literal body of Jesus had not been raised, then these angels were liars.


Do you believe that? These are only a few of the very many passages in which it is very clearly taught that the very body of Jesus was raised from the dead. The body of Jesus was raised from the dead and our bodies shall be raised from the dead, else Christianity is a lie from start to finish.


But Christ was raised from the dead and we shall be raised. Or, as Paul puts it in the 20th verse of this same chapter, “But now hath Christ been raised from the dead, the first fruits of them that are asleep.” Our resurrection, the resurrection of our bodies, will be the harvest that follows the resurrection of the body of Christ, which was “the first fruits.”

This appears from I Cor. 15:35-38: “But some will say, how are the dead raised? And with what manner of body do they come? Thou foolish one, that which thou thyself sowest is not quickened, except it die: and that which thou sowest, thou sowest not in the body that shall be, but a bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other kind; but God giveth it a body even as it pleased him, and to each seed a body of its own.” 


Here we are told that our bodies when they are raised will not be exactly the same as our bodies when they are buried, any more than the wheat that springs from the kernel of wheat that is planted is the same as the kernel that was planted. But just as what grows from the seed comes from the seed and bears the most intimate relation to the seed, so our resurrection bodies come from the body that is buried and bear the most intimate relation to it.


The resurrection body is the outcome of the body that is buried. It is the old body quickened and transformed; or, as Paul puts it in Phil. 3:20, 21: “Jesus Christ . . . shall fashion anew the body of our humiliation, that it may be conformed to the body of his glory, according to the working whereby he is able even to subject all things unto himself.”


2. The next thing that the Bible teaches about our resurrection bodies is that they are like the glorified body of Jesus Christ.


This appears from the verses just quoted, Phil. 3:20, 21: “The Lord Jesus Christ . . . shall fashion anew the body of our humiliation, that it may be conformed to the body of his glory, according to the work whereby he is able even to subject all things unto himself.” 


Christ’s resurrection body was not the same body that was laid in the sepulchre. It was the old body transformed and delivered from the limitations of the body that He had while living here among men, and new qualities imparted to it, and our bodies will also be transformed into the likeness of this glorious body of Christ and thus delivered from the limitations to which they are subjected now, and new qualities imparted to them.


It will be a transformed body; the character of its transformation is indicated by the transformation that took place in the body of Jesus Christ. Some suggestion as to what that transformed body of Jesus Christ was like is found in that anticipation of His resurrection which was seen by Peter, James and John on the mount of transfiguration.


Matthew in his description of the appearance of Jesus at His transfiguration, tells us that “His face did shine as the sun, and his garments [became white as the light” (Matt. 17:2). Luke tells us that “the fashion of his countenance was altered and His raiment became white and dazzling” (Luke 9:29). Mark tells us that “He was transfigured before them: and his garments became glistering, exceeding white; so as no fuller on earth can whiten them” (Mark 9:2, 3).


3. The next thing that we are told about our resurrection bodies is that they will not be flesh and blood.


In I Cor. 15:50, 51 we read, “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God.” Paul is here talking about our resurrection bodies. It is in the resurrection chapter he says this, and he distinctly tells us that our resurrection bodies will not be “flesh and blood.”


4. But while our resurrection bodies will not be “flesh and blood,” they will have “flesh and bones.” 


This appears from what our Lord Himself says about His own resurrection body in Luke 24:39. Here we read that Jesus said: “See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones as ye behold me having.” 


As our resurrection bodies are to be transformed into the likeness of His, we also must have “flesh and bones” in our resurrection bodies. Some have fancied that they saw a contradiction between what our Lord says here and what Paul says in the passage quoted above (I Cor.15:50, 51), but there is no contradiction. “Flesh” we shall have, but not “flesh and blood,” i.e., not flesh, the animating principle of which is blood.


The question arises, What takes the place of the blood in our resurrection bodies? The answer seems to be that in the present life, “blood is the life” of the natural body, but in the life to come our bodies are to be, as we are told elsewhere in this same chapter, “spiritual bodies,” i.e., bodies, the animating principle of which is the Spirit of God, not our own blood. Our not having “blood” in our resurrection bodies involves many great and glorious possibilities, upon which we cannot dwell now.


5. In the fifth place (and closely connected with 3 and 4), our resurrection bodies will be incorruptible.


We read in I Cor. 15:42: “So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption.” The thought of this word “incorruption” is that the body is not subject to decay, it is imperishable.


Our present bodies are decaying all the time. We are perishing every day and every minute. My present body is disintegrating while I talk to you. But the bodies that we shall receive in the resurrection will be absolutely free from the liability to corruption or decay. They cannot disintegrate or suffer decay or deterioration of any kind.


6. The next thing that we are taught about the resurrection body is that it is a glorious body.


This comes out in the first part of the following verse, I Cor. 15:43, “It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory.” Some idea of the glory, the [glorious beauty, of that body is suggested by the representation of our glorified Lord that we have in Rev. 1:13-17: “And in the midst of the candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot and girt about the breasts with a golden girdle. And his head and his hair were white as white wool, white as snow, and his eyes were as a flame of fire and his feet like unto burnished brass, as if it had been refined in a furnace, and his voice as the voice of many waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth proceeded a sharp two-edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as one dead, and he laid his right hand upon me saying, Fear not; I am the first and the last.” Our resurrection bodies will be like that.


7. Furthermore, our resurrection bodies will be powerful.


Or as we read in the last half of this same verse (1 Cor. 15:43), “It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power.” Then all our weariness and weakness will be forever at an end. In our present bodies our bodies are oftentimes a hindrance to our highest aspirations, they thwart the carrying out of our loftiest purposes, we cannot put into execution our loftiest purposes, “the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.” But in our resurrection bodies the body will be able to accomplish all that the spirit purposes. The redeemed body will be a perfect counterpart of the [redeemed spirit that inhabits it. No deafness, dimsightedness nor blindness, no tired hands and feet, no maimed soldier boys coming home from the war.


8. It will be a heavenly body. 


This appears from the 47th to the 49th verses of this same chapter. “The first man is of (literally, out ofthe earth, earthy: the second man is of (literally, out ofheaven: as is the earth, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.” The thought plainly is that our present bodies are of an earthly origin and an earthly character, but that the transformed body will be of a heavenly character.


Paul explains it at length in 2 Cor. 5:1-4 where he says, “For we know that if the earthly house of our tabernacle be dissolved, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal, in the heavens. For verily in this (i.e., in this present earthly house, earthy body) we groan, longing to be clothed upon with our habitation which is from heaven (i.e., our heavenly body): if so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. For indeed we that are in this tabernacle (i.e., in the present earthy body) groan, being burdened; not for that we would be unclothed, but that we would be clothed upon (i.e., with our heavenly body), that what is mortal may be swallowed up of life.”


9. Our transformed bodies will be luminous, shining, dazzling, bright like the sun. 


This is seen in many passages. For example, Matt. 13:43, “Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father.” This is to be taken literally for it is in the interpretation of the parable and not in the parable. This suggests what we have already seen about the transfigured body of Jesus in Matt. 17:2, where we are told that “His face did shine as the sun, and his garments became white as the light.” We have the same thought also in the Old Testament in Dan. 12:3, where we are told, “And they that are wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever.” 


They shall shine literally as well as figuratively. Some suggestion of what the luminous glory of our faces and forms in our resurrection bodies will be is seen in the light that Paul tells us that he saw beaming from the person of Jesus when the glorified Jesus met him on the Damascus road. In Paul’s description of what he saw on that occasion, as given in Acts 26:12, 13, we read, “Whereupon as I journeyed to Damascus with the authority and commission of the chief priests, at midday, O king, I saw on the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining around about me and them that journeyed with me.” The light that Saul saw, as is evident from the whole account, was the light that shone from the person of our glorified Lord, [and in our resurrection bodies we shall be like Him.


10. Three interesting facts regarding our resurrection bodies are stated in Matt. 22:30 and Luke 20:35, 36.


In Matt. 22:30 we read: “For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as angels in heaven.” In Luke 20:35, 36 we read: “But they that are counted worthy to attain to that world, and the resurrection of the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: for neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection.” Taking these two passages together, we learn that our resurrection bodies are like the angels, that we do not marry in our resurrection bodies and that these bodies cannot die any more.


11. Though all these resurrection bodies are glorious, they differ from one another, each one having its own peculiar glory. 


This appears from 1 Cor. 15:41, 42: “There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for one star differeth from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection from the dead.” Glorious as all our bodies shall be, there will be no tiresome uniformity even of glory in the world of resurrection bodies. Each body will have its own peculiar glory.


12. Let us say finally in regard to the character of our resurrection body, that the resurrection of our body will be the consummation of our adoption, i.e., of our placing as sons, our manifestations as sons of God.


In Rom. 8:23 we read: “We, which have the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for our adoption (i.e., our placing as sons), to wit, the redemption of our body.” 


The resurrection body will be the consummation of our placing as sons, i.e., in the resurrection body it will be outwardly manifested that we are sons of God. Before His incarnation Christ was “in the form of God.” (Phil. 2:6), i.e., in the visible appearance of God. So shall we also be in the resurrection, for our bodies shall be like His.


This throws light upon what Paul meant when he said in Col. 3:4: “When Christ, who is our life, shall be manifested, then shall we also with him be manifested in glory.” And also it throws light on what John meant when he says in I John 3:2, R. V.“Beloved, now are we the children of God, and it is not yet made manifest what we shall be. We know that, if he shall be manifested, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.”

When Will The Resurrection Of The Body Take Place – Spiritual Reading.



There remains but one question to be considered and we can deal with that very briefly. That question is, when will the resurrection of the body take place? This question is plainly answered time and again in the Bible. For example, it is answered in Phil. 3:20, 21: “For our citizenship is in heaven; from whence also we wait for a Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall fashion anew the body of our humiliation, that it may be conformed to the body of his glory, according to the working whereby he is able even to subject all things unto himself.” 


Here it is plainly declared that the transformation of our bodies into the likeness of the glorious body of Christ will take place when the Lord Jesus whom we are awaiting shall appear from heaven. The same thought is given in I Thess.4:16, 17: “For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven, with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first; then we which are alive, that are left, shall together with them be caught up in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” 


The question will arise in some of our minds, what about us in the meantime if we chance to die before the coming of the Lord? This question also is plainly answered in II Cor. 5:1-8: “For we know that if the earthly house of our tabernacle (our present bodies) be dissolved (die and decay) we have a building from God, a house not made with hands (our resurrection body that we are to get at the coming of the Lord), eternal, in the heavens. For verily in this (i.e., while living in this present body) we groan, longing to be clothed upon with our habitation which is from heaven (our resurrection body) if so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.


For indeed we that are in this tabernacle (this present earthy body) do groan, being burdened; not for that we would be unclothed (i.e., not that we would merely get rid of our present bodies), but that we would be clothed upon (i.e., that we would receive our resurrection bodies) that what is mortal may be swallowed up of life. Now he that wrought us for this very thing is God, who gave unto us the earnest of the Spirit (i.e., the Holy Ghost, whom we have received as the earnest of the full redemption in our resurrection bodies which are to be obtained at the coming of the Lord). 


Being therefore always of good courage and knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body (i.e., while we are still in our earthly life in this present earthly body) we are absent from the Lord (for we walk by faith not by sight); we are of good courage, I say, and are willing rather to be absent from the body (i.e., to have our present earthly body die even before we get our resurrection bodies, which we shall not get until the return of the Lord), and to be at home with the Lord.” 


The teaching of this plainly is that if we die before the return of the Lord and therefore before we obtain our resurrection body, our spirits are unclothed, i.e., they are unclothed from this present body and not yet clothed upon with the resurrection body, but that we are “at home with the Lord” in conscious blessedness, in a condition that is far better than that that we are in in this present life (see Phil. 1:23, R. V.), but not so perfect as that condition which shall be when our redeemed spirits are clothed upon with our resurrection bodies. 


It will be at the return of the Lord Jesus that we get our full redemption. That is one reason why “we wait” (literally, assiduously wait) for Him (Phil. 3:20, 21, see Greek). That is one reason why we long for the return of the Lord. There are many reasons why we long for the return of our Lord. All the great problems that are confronting us at this present time in national and international life, in social, commercial and political life, will be solved when He comes, and will never be solved until He comes; and for these reasons we long for Him.


But we long for Him also because while this present body serves many a useful purpose for the redeemed spirit that inhabits it, it is often a hindrance. It is often subject to aches and pains, to frailties, and it is a constant temptation to folly. But when our Lord Jesus comes again He will transform this present body of our humiliation into the likeness of His own glorious body and at that time we shall know what “full salvation” means, when we shall shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of our Father.

What Is The Existence, Nature, Character, Work And Destiny Of The Devil – Spiritual Reading.



1 John 3:8: “The Devil Sinneth.” The Bible doctrine concerning the Devil, his Existence, Nature, Character, Work and Destiny is a fundamental doctrine of the Christian faith, and is of vital importance. The teaching of the Bible on this subject is not a mere matter of theory or dogma. It is a matter of most practical every day importance.


Experience shows that if men are in error in regard to this subject, they are pretty sure to be in error on other questions that are fundamental. When men and women begin to question the existence of a personal Devil it is pretty sure that before long they will be questioning a good many other things regarding which a true child of God should have no questions. Doubt of the existence of a personal Devil is widespread to-day.


Many preachers in supposedly orthodox pulpits do not hesitate to say, “I do not believe in the existence of a personal Devil.” Denial of the existence of a personal Devil is one of the main points in the system which is so widespread to-day, and which is doing so much evil, that with considerable reason it has been called “The Devil’s Masterpiece”—Christian Science.


A well-known and popular pastor in this city some months ago proclaimed to his people that he was going to preach to them a gospel “without an atonement of blood, without an infallible Bible, without hell, and without a personal Devil.” If he does preach to them a system of doctrine without any of these he will preach some other system of doctrine than that which is contained in the book, which our Lord Jesus Christ has endorsed as the Word of God, i.e., the Bible.


He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. 

1 John 3:8

You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. 

John 8:44

What Is Sanctification And Being Set Apart – Spiritual Reading

What Is Sanctification And Being Set Apart – Spiritual Reading.



In the first place let me make it clear that, Sanctification is not the “Baptism with the Holy Spirit.” The two are constantly confused. There is an intimate relation between the two, but they are not at all one and the same thing; and only confusion and misconception can arise from confounding two experiences which God keeps separate. That Sanctification is not the baptism with the Holy Spirit and that the baptism with the Holy Spirit is not Sanctification, will become clear as we proceed and find out from a study of the Bible just what Sanctification is.


In the second place, let me say that Sanctification is not the eradication of the carnal nature. We will see this when we come to examine God’s definition of Sanctification; for God has very clearly defined what Sanctification is and when it takes place. Those who teach “the eradication of the carnal nature” are grasping after a great and precious truth, but they have expressed that truth in a very inaccurate, unfortunate, and unscriptural way, and this way of stating it leads to grave misapprehensions and errors and abuses.


The whole controversy about “the eradication of the carnal nature” arises from a misapprehension and from using terms for which there is no warrant in the Bible. The Bible nowhere speaks about “the carnal nature,” and so certainly not about “the eradication of the carnal nature.” There is such a thing as a carnal nature, but it is not a material thing, not a substance, not a something that can be eradicated as you pull a tooth or remove the vermiform appendix. “A carnal nature” is a nature controlled by the flesh. Certainly it is a believer’s privilege not to have his nature governed by the flesh.


Our nature should be and may be under the control of the Holy Spirit, and then it is not a carnal nature; but one nature has not been eradicated and another nature put in its place, but our nature is taken out from under the control of the flesh and put under the control of the Holy Spirit. Furthermore, while it is our privilege to have our nature under the control of the Holy Spirit and delivered from the control of the flesh, we still have “the flesh,” and shall have the flesh as long as we are in this body.


But if we “walk by the Spirit” we do not “fulfil the lusts of the flesh” (Gal. 5:16). The 8th chapter of Romans describes the life of victory, just as the 7thchapter, 9-24 verse describes the life of defeat, when men are “carnal, sold under sin,” but it is in the 8th chapter where life “in the Spirit” is described (Rom. 8:9) that we are told that we still have the flesh, but that it is our privilege not to “live after the flesh,” but “by the Spirit,” to “put to death the deeds of the body.” So we see that the body is there, but in the power of the Spirit we do, day by day and (if we live up to our privilege) every day and every hour and every minute, continuously “put to death the deeds of the body.”


So much as to what Sanctification is not. We will see exactly what it is if we look at God’s definition of Sanctification. We shall find that the word Sanctification is used in the Bible in a two-fold sense.


The first meaning of Sanctification we will find in Lev. 8:10-12, “And Moses took the anointing oil, and anointed the tabernacle and all that was therein, and sanctified them. And he sprinkled thereof upon the altar seven times, and anointed the altar and all its vessels, and the laver and its base, to sanctify them. And he poured of the anointing oil upon Aaron’s head and anointed him to sanctify him.” 


Now it is perfectly clear in this passage that to sanctify means to separate or set [apart for God, and that Sanctification is the process of setting apart or state of being set apart for God. The word Sanctify is used in this sense over and over again.


Another illustration is Lev. 27:14, 17. “And when a man shall sanctify his house to be holy unto God, then the priest shall estimate it, whether it be good or bad: as the priest shall estimate it, so shall it stand . . . and if a man shall sanctify unto Jehovah part of a field of his possession, then the estimation shall be according to the sowing thereof.” 


Here again it is plain that to sanctify means to separate or set apart for God, and that Sanctification is the process of setting apart or state of being set apart for God. Still another illustration of this same use of the word sanctify is found in Num.8:17, “For all the firstborn among the children of Israel are mine, both man and beast: on the day that I smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt I sanctified them for myself.” 


This, of course, does not mean that God, at the time that He smote the firstborn in Egypt, eradicated the carnal nature from the first-born of Israel. It does mean that He set apart all the first-born to be peculiarly His own. Another very suggestive illustration of the same usage of the word is found in the case of Jeremiah as stated by himself in Jer. 1:4, 5, “Now the word of Jehovah came unto me saying, before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee: I have appointed thee a prophet unto the nations.” 


This plainly means that before his birth God set Jeremiah apart for Himself. There would still be much imperfection and infirmity in him, but he was set apart for God. Another suggestive illustration of the same use of the word Sanctify is found in Matt. 23:27, in the words of our Lord Jesus Himself: “Ye fools and blind; for which is greater, the gold, or the temple that hath sanctified the gold?” 


But perhaps the most striking illustration of all is in what our Lord says about His own sanctification in John 17:19, “And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth.” Here the plain meaning is that our Lord Jesus set Himself apart for this work for God and He did it in order that believers might be set apart for God “in truth,” or “in the truth.”


This is the most frequent use of the word sanctify. There are numerous illustrations of it in the Bible. So to sanctify means to separate or set apart for God; and Sanctification is the process of setting apart or the state of being set apart for God. This is the primary meaning of the words.


But the word as used in the Bible has also a secondary signification closely related to this primary meaning. An illustration of this secondary meaning will be found in II Chron. 29:5, “Hear me, ye Levites; now sanctify yourselves, and sanctify the house of Jehovah, the God of your fathers, and carry forth the filthiness out of the holy place.” 


Bearing in mind the “parallelism” [which is the chief characteristic of Hebrew poetry, it is plain that to sanctify here is synonymous with the “Carry forth the filthiness out of the holy places” found in the last part of the verse. So to sanctify here means to separate from ceremonial or moral defilement, to cleanse; and Sanctification is the process of separating, or state of being separated from ceremonial or moral defilement.


The same use of the word is found in Lev. 11:44, “For I am Jehovah thy God: sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that moveth upon the earth.” Here again it is clear that “sanctify yourselves” is synonymous with “be ye holy” and is contrasted with “defile yourselves” and means to separate from ceremonial or moral defilement, to cleanse; and Sanctification is the process of separating or state of being separated from ceremonial or moral defilement.


The same meaning of sanctification is found in the New Testament in I Thess. 5:23, “And the God of Peace, Himself sanctify you wholly and may your Spirit and soul and body be preserved entire, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Here we see the close relation between entire sanctification and preserving wholly, without blame, and to sanctify here clearly means to separate from moral defilement, and sanctification here again is the process of separating or state of being separated from moral defilement.


The same thing is evident [from the 4th chapter of this same epistle in the 7th verse (I Thess. 4:7), “For God called us not for uncleanness, but in sanctification.” Our “Sanctification” is here set in direct contrast with “uncleanness,” and hence it is evident that sanctification here means the state of being separated from all moral defilement. The same thing is evident from the 3rd verse of this same chapter, “For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye abstain from fornication.” 


Here again it is evident that Sanctification means separation from impurity or moral defilement. The two meanings, then, of Sanctification are: the process of separating or setting apart, or state of being separated or set apart, for God; and the process of separating or state of being separated from ceremonial or moral defilement. These two meanings of the word are closely allied—one cannot be truly separated to God without being separated from sin.

How Can You Be Sanctified And Set Apart – Spiritual Reading.



1. The first part of the answer is found in our text of this chapter: 


I Thess. 5:23, “And the God of Peace himself sanctify you wholly and may your Spirit and soul and body be preserved entire, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” It appears from this verse that God sanctifies men, and Sanctification is God’s work. Both the separation of men from sin and their separation unto God, is God’s work. As it was God who in the old dispensation set apart the first-born of Israel unto Himself, so it is God who in the new dispensation sets apart the believer unto Himself and separates him from sin. Sanctification is primarily not our work but God’s.


2. The second part of the answer is found in: 


Eph. 5:25, 26, “Husbands love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself up for it; that he might sanctify it, having cleansed it by the washing of water by the word.” Here we are taught that Christ sanctifies the church and that Sanctification is Christ’s work. The question, of course, arises, in what sense does Christ sanctify the church. The answer is found in Heb. 10:10, “By which will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.” 


Here it appears that Jesus Christ sanctifies the church by giving Himself up a sacrifice for it. By thus giving Himself up for it as a sacrifice Christ sets the Church apart for God. Just as the blood of the Passover Lamb in the 11th and 12th chapters of Exodus set a difference between Israel and the Egyptians, so our Lord Jesus by the offering of His own body has forever put a difference between the believer in Himself and the world, and has forever set every believer apart for God. The Cross of Christ stands between the [believer and the world. The shed blood of Christ separates the believer from the world, purchases him to God and thus makes him to belong to God.


3. The third part of the answer to the question, how men are sanctified, is found in:


 2 Thess. 2:13 and in other passages, “But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, for that God chose you from the beginning unto salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth.” It appears from this passage, as from other passages in the Bible, that it is the Holy Spirit who sanctifies the believer, and that Sanctification is the Holy Spirit’s work.


Here the question arises, In what sense does the Holy Spirit sanctify the believer? In this sense, just as in the Old Testament type, tabernacle, altar and priest were set apart for God by the anointing oil (Lev. 8:10-12), so in the New Testament anti-type, the believer, who is both tabernacle and priest, is set apart for God by the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Further than that, it is the Holy Spirit’s work in the heart that overcomes the flesh and its defilements, and thus separates the believer from sin and clothes him with divine graces of character, and makes him fit to be God’s own.


As Paul puts it in Gal.5:22, 23, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faith, meekness, self-control.” In opposition to this work of the Holy Spirit, we read in the immediately preceding verses what “the works of the flesh” are, an awful [catalogue of vileness and sin, and we are told in the 16thverse, “Walk in the Spirit and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.”


4. The fourth part of the answer to the question how we are sanctified is found in:


 Heb. 13:12, “Wherefore, Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people through his own blood suffered without the gate.” It is plain from this passage that believers are sanctified through the blood of Jesus Christ. Here the question arises, In what sense does the blood of Jesus sanctify? The answer is plain: The blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all the guilt of sin, and thus separates us from the mass of men under the curse of the broken law, and sets us apart for God (cf. 1 John 1:7, 9). In the Old Testament dispensation the blood of the sacrifice cleansed the Israelites from the guilt of ceremonial offenses and set them apart for God; in the New Testament anti-type the blood of Christ cleanseth the believer from the guilt of moral offenses and sets him apart for God.


5. The fifth part of the answer to the question, how men are sanctified, is found in:


John 17:17, “Sanctify them in the truth: thy word is truth.” Here our Lord Jesus in His prayer indicates that we are sanctified in the truth, and that the truth is the Word of God. In what sense does the Word of God sanctify? This question is plainly answered in different parts of the Word of God, where we are taught that the Word of God cleanses from the presence of sin, and thus [separates us from it and sets us apart to God. (Ps. 119:9, 11; John 15:3.) As we bring our lives into daily contact with the Word, the sins and imperfections of our lives and hearts are disclosed and put away, and thus we are more and more separated from sin unto God. (cf. John 13:10.)


6. The sixth part of the answer to the question, how men are sanctified, is found in:


 1 Cor. 1:30, “But of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, who was made unto us wisdom from God, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.” In this passage we are taught that Jesus Christ was made unto us from God sanctification. Just what does that mean? Simply this: that separation from sin and separation to God are provided for us in Christ Jesus and by the appropriation of Jesus Christ we obtain this sanctification thus provided.


The more completely we appropriate Christ the more completely are we sanctified. But perfect sanctification is provided for us in Him, just as perfect wisdom is provided in Him (Col. 2:3). We appropriate either wisdom or sanctification or anything else that is provided for us in Christ in ever-increasing measure. Through the indwelling Christ presented to us by the Spirit in the Word, we are made Christlike and bear fruit.


7. The seventh part of the answer to the question of how men are sanctified is found in:


 Heb. 12:14, “Follow after peace with all men, and the sanctification without which no man shall see the Lord.” Here we are taught that we have our [own part in sanctification, and that if we are to be sanctified in the fullest sense, sanctification is something that we must pursue, or seek earnestly, if we are to obtain it. While sanctification is God’s work, we have our part in it, viz., to make it the object of our earnest desire and eager pursuit.


8. The eighth part of the answer to the question of how we are sanctified is found in:


 Rom. 6:19, 22, “As ye presented your members as servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity, even so present your members as servants to righteousness unto sanctification. . . . But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto sanctification.” The meaning of these words is plain, and the teaching important and practical. We are here taught that we attain unto sanctification through presenting our members as servants (bondservants, or slaves) to righteousness and becoming ourselves bondservants unto God.


In other words, if we wish to attain unto sanctification we should present our whole body and every member of it to God, to be His servants, belonging wholly unto Him, and we should present ourselves to God as His servants, to be His absolute property. This is the practical method of attaining unto sanctification, a method that is open to each one of us here to-day, no matter how weak we are in ourselves.


9. The ninth and final part of the answer to the question of how we are sanctified, is found in: 


Acts 26:18, “To open their eyes, that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive remission of sins and an inheritance among them that are sanctified by faith in Me.” Here we are told that we are sanctified by faith in Christ. Sanctification, just as justification, regeneration, and adoption, is conditioned upon faith. Faith is the hand that appropriates to ourselves the blessing of sanctification that God has provided for us through His Son Jesus Christ by His death on the cross, and through the power of the Holy Spirit working in us. And we claim sanctification by simple faith in Him who shed His blood and by surrendering ourselves to the control of the Holy Spirit, Whom Jesus Christ gives.

How To Be Victorious And Triumph Over The Devil – Spiritual Reading.



Now just for a few moments let me show you from the Word of God, how, in practical every day life, to get the victory over the Devil. There are four things to be borne in mind.


1. Read first:


James 4:7, “Be subject therefore unto God: but resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” This teaches us that, we are first of all to surrender to God and then to resist the Devil and that, if we do resist him, for all his cunning and power, he will flee from us. Although the Devil is strong, it is ours in God’s strength to withstand him and overcome him.


2. Now turn to: 


I John 2:14: “I have written unto you, fathers, because ye know him which is from the beginning. I have written unto you young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the evil one.” This passage teaches us that, it is when we feed upon the Word of God and store the Word of God in our hearts, thus having it abiding in us, that we shall be able to overcome the Devil. If we neglect the study of the Bible for a single day, we leave an open door for the Devil to enter. I have been a Christian for forty-three years, but I would not dare to neglect the study of God’s word for one single day. Why not? Because there is a devil; and, if I neglect the study of the Word of God for a single day, I leave a window open for him to enter and leave myself too weak to cope with him and conquer him. But if we will feed upon the Word of God daily, and trust in God, we can resist the devil at every point. Though the Devil is cunning and strong, God is stronger, and God imparts His strength to us through His written word.


3. Turn now to: 


Eph. 6:11: “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” Here we are taught that, in order“to stand against the wiles of the Devil” we must “Put on the whole armour of God.” What that armour is, is found in the verses that immediately follow. This armour, this whole armour, this “panoply of God,” is at our disposal. The fact that there is a Devil, that he is a being of such majesty, dignity, cunning, and power, that he is so incessantly plotting our ruin and to undermine our faith, is no reason for fear or discouragement. By taking “the shield of faith” we shall be “able to quench all the fiery darts of the evil one,” by taking “the helmet of salvation,” and the “sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God,” and by “praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit,” it is our privilege to have victory over the Devil every day of our lives, every hour of the day, and every minute of the hour.


4. The final step in the way to get victory over Satan is found in”


 Eph. 6:10: “Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of his might.” The way to get victory over Satan is to give up all confidence in our own strength and believe in the almighty strength of Jesus Christ and claim that strength for ourselves. It is in the strength of Jesus Christ’s might that we shall get the victory over “the evil one.” In the strength of His might, as we have already said, it is our privilege to have victory over the Devil every day of our lives, every hour of the day and every minute in the hour. Hallelujah!

We’re Singing Holy Lyrics



Take us into the Holy of Holies
Into the place where kings take off their crowns
We’re overwhelmed by the weight of Your glory
You’re lifted higher as every knee bows down


We’re singing
Holy, holy, holy is the lord
We’re singing
Holy, holy, holy is the lord


Everything changes here in Your presence
Nothing can stand before Your majesty
So be magnified until earth looks likes heaven
Jesus, shine brighter, until the whole world sings


We’ll join with all of heaven singing, holy is the lord
The ground is shaking, the earth is waking
With this holy roar


We join with the angels
We join with the saints
We lift up Your praise
And we lift up Your name
.
Singing holy, holy, holy is the lord

As For Me And My House Lyrics



I’m done
Building my own kingdom
No more
Seeking worthless idols


Like sheep we have all gone astray
We must choose this day
Whom we will serve
As for me and my house
We will serve the Lord
We will serve the Lord
Idols raised, tear them down
Cause we will serve the Lord
We will serve the Lord
To one king we bow down


As for me and my house
We will only serve the Lord
I’m done
With powerless religion


No more
Living in deception
Like sheep we have all gone astray
We must choose this day
Whom we will serve
As for me and my house
We will serve the Lord


We will serve the Lord
Idols raised, tear them down


We will serve the Lord
We will serve the Lord
To one king we bow down
As for me and my house
We will serve the Lord
We will cross over Jordan
We will claim what you promised


We will cross over Jordan
We will claim what you promised
As for me and my house
We will serve the Lord
We will serve the Lord
Idols raised, tear them down
Cause we will serve the Lord
We will serve the Lord
And we will not give our hearts to another
Will not give our hearts to another
We belong to the Lord
We will not give our hearts to another
Will not give our hearts to another
We will only serve the Lord
As for me and my house

Before the Earth knew its foundations
You spoke the dust, into creation
Until the end, when all has withered
Then still your Word, will endure forever

Deep calls to deep, within Your presence
When I hear You speak, my soul awakens
Your Spirit leads, my heart to worship
As Your Word reveals, the light of Jesus


The lamp unto my feet
The light unto my path

In Control Lyrics



From Heaven You can hear
I know You’re drawing near
As I worship
Held within Your love
The wind and waves will come
But I will stay here


I lift my hands to Heaven
Here my heart surrendered
I tell my soul again
You are Lord of all
And though the seas are raging
You will speak and tame them
In You I find my rest
You are in control


Through valleys I will trust
Your spirit is enough, to keep me walking
You guide my every step
Speak life to me again
Lord I need You
Oh I need You


I lift my hands to Heaven
Here my heart surrendered
I tell my soul again
You are Lord of all
And though the seas are raging
You will speak and tame them
In You I find my rest
You are in control


I will trust in only You
No one can add to Your perfection
You’re the beginning and the end
More than I can comprehend
There is no one like You
No one


I will trust in only You
No one can add to Your perfection
You’re the beginning and the end
More than I can comprehend
There is no one like You
No one


I will trust in only You
No one can add to Your perfection
You’re the beginning and the end
More than I can comprehend
There is no one like You

Here my heart surrendered

As It Is In Heaven Lyrics



Whether now or then
Death is not my end
I know Heaven waits for me
Though the road seems long
I’ll never walk alone
And I got all I need to sing


I know You love me
I know You found me
I know You saved me
And Your grace will never fail me


And while I’m waiting
I’m not waiting
I know Heaven lives in me


Should I suffer long
This is not my home
I know Heaven waits for me


And though the night is dark
Heaven owns my heart
And I got all I need to sing


I know You love me
I know You found me
I know You saved me
And Your grace will never fail me


And while I’m waiting
I’m not waiting
I know Heaven lives in me


So I will sing like I will there
In the fearless light of glory
Where the darkness cannot find me
And Your face is all I see


Oh I will sing like a man
With no sickness in my body
Like no prison walls can hold me
I will sing like I am free


‘Cause I know You love me
I know You found me
I know You saved me
And Your grace will never fail me


And while I’m waiting
I’m not waiting
I know Heaven lives in me


I know You love me
I know You found me
I know You saved me
And Your grace will never fail me


And while I’m waiting
I’m not waiting
I know Heaven lives in me


So I will sing like I will there
In the fearless light of glory
Where the darkness cannot find me
And Your face is all I see


Oh I will sing like a man
With no sickness in my body
Like no prison walls can hold me
I will sing like I am free


‘Cause I know You love me
I know You found me
I know You saved me
And Your grace will never fail me


And while I’m waiting
Oh I’m not waiting
I know Heaven lives in me


I’ll sing Holy, Holy
My heart, cries Holy
As it is, in Heaven
It is in me


I’ll sing Holy, Holy
My heart, cries Holy

It is in me

Let There Be Light Lyrics



There’s no darkness in Your eyes
There’s no question in Your mind
God Almighty
God of mercy


There’s no hiding from Your face
There’s no striving in Your grace
God of mercy
God Almighty


Let there be light
Open the eyes of the blind
Purify our hearts in Your fire
Breathe in us we pray
Jesus have Your way


There’s no borders in Your love
No division in Your heart
God of Heaven
God of freedom


There’s no taking back the cross
No regret in what it cost
God of freedom
God of Heaven


Let there be light
Open the eyes of the blind
Purify our hearts in Your fire
Breathe in us we pray


Let there be light
Open our eyes to Your heart
Desperate just to know who You are
Shine in us we pray
Jesus have Your way


Good news embracing the poor
Comfort for all those who mourn
For the broken hearted
We sing louder


Release from prison and shame
Oppression turning to praise
For every captive
Sing louder


Restoring sight to the blind
Breaking the curse of the night
For all in darkness
Sing louder


Proclaiming freedom for all
This is the day of the Lord
Beauty for ashes


Let there be light
Open the eyes of the blind
Purify our hearts in Your fire
Breathe in us we pray


Jesus
Let there be light
Open our eyes to Your heart
Desperate just to know who You are
Shine in us we pray
Jesus have Your way


Let the light that shines above
Become the light that shines in us
There’s no darkness in Your way
So have Your way
Lord have Your way

Love Is War Lyrics



In Your justice and Your mercy
Heaven walked the broken road
Here to fight this sinner’s battle
Here to make my fall Your own


Turn my eyes to see Your face
As all my fears surrender
Hold my heart within this grace
Where burden turns to wonder


I will fight to follow
I will fight for love
Throw my life forever
To the triumph of the Son


Let Your love be my companion
In the war against my pride
Long to break all vain obsession
Till You’re all that I desire


Turn my eyes to see Your face
As all my fears surrender
Hold my heart within this grace
Where burden turns to wonder


I will fight to follow
I will fight for love
Throw my life forever
To the triumph of the Son


And I know Your love has won it all
You took the fall
To embrace my sorrows
I know You took the fight
You came and died but the grave was borrowed
I know You stood again
So I can stand with a life to follow
In the light of Your name


Turn my eyes to see Your face
As all my fears surrender
Hold my heart within this grace
Where burden turns to wonder


I will fight to follow
I will fight for love
Throw my life forever
To the triumph of the Son


And I know Your love has won it all
You took the fall
To embrace my sorrows
I know You took the fight
You came and died but the grave was borrowed
I know You stood again
So I can stand with a life to follow
In the light of Your name


And I know Your love has won it all

I know You stood again
So I can stand with a life to follow
In the light of Your name

Victory Is Yours Lyrics



Our fight is with weapons unseen
Your enemies crash to their knees
As we rise up in worship
When trials unleash like a flood
The battle belongs to our God
As we cry out in worship


The victory is Yours
You’re riding on the storm
Your name is unfailing
Though kingdoms rise and fall
Your throne withstands it all
Your name is unshaken


What hell meant to break me has failed
Now nothing will silence my praise
I will cry out in worship
The walls of the prison will shake
The chain-breaking King will rise to save
As we cry out in worship


The victory is Yours
You’re riding on the storm
Your name is unfailing
Though kingdoms rise and fall
Your throne withstands it all
Your name is unshaken
Oh, it’s unshaken


You roar like thunder
Nothing can tame
God, all-powerful, all-powerful
We pull down heaven
With shouts of praise
God, all-powerful, all-powerful
You roar like thunder
Nothing can tame
God, all-powerful, all-powerful
We pull down heaven
With shouts of praise
God, all-powerful, all-powerful


The victory is Yours
You’re riding on the storm
Your name is unfailing
Though kingdoms rise and fall
Your throne withstands it all
Your name is unshaken


You roar like thunder
Nothing can tame
God, all-powerful, all-powerful
We pull down heaven
With shouts of praise
God, all-powerful, all-powerful


The victory is Yours
You’re riding on the storm
Your name is unfailing
Though kingdoms rise and fall
Your throne withstands it all
Your name is unshaken

“Hello God” Lyrics

Hello God, are you out there?
Can you hear me, are you listenin’ any more?
Hello God, if we’re still on speakin’ terms
Can you help me like before?
I have questioned your existence,
My resistance leaves me cold
Can you help me go the distance?
Hello God, hello, hello

This old world has gone to pieces
Can we fix it, is there time?
Hate and violence just increases
We’re so selfish, cruel and blind
We fight and kill each other
In your name, defending you
Do you love some more than others?
We’re so lost and confused

Hello God, are you out there?
Can you hear us, are you listenin’ any more?
Hello God, if we’re still on speakin’ terms
Can you help us like before?
Oh, the free will you have given
We have made a mockery of
This is no way to be livin’,
We’re in great need of your love
Hello God

Hello God, can you grant us
Love enough to make amends
(Hello God) Is there still a chance
That we could start again
Hello God, we’ve learned our lesson
Dear God, don’t let us go
More than ever
Hello God, hello, hello
Hello God, we really need you
We can’t make it without you
(Hello God) We beseech you
In the name of all that’s true
Hello God, please forgive us
For we know not what we do

Hello God, give us one more chance to prove ourselves to you
Hello, God; hello, God

Halls Of Heaven Lyrics



Like thunder, speaking from the clouds
Your word is always going out
Your whisper, I keep following the sound
Into Your presence
I get caught up
Shadows left behind
I get caught up
Drawn into Your light
I get caught up
Where Spirit is alive
Into Your presence
.
Like a child we come running
Through the halls of Heaven
To the Holy of Holies
Doors are flung wide open
Joy is overflowing
In the halls of Heaven
We come running
We come running
Through the halls of Heaven
We come running
We come running
Through the halls of Heaven
.
Unhindered, all fear is letting go
Abandoned, a beauty to behold
I get caught up
I get caught up
I get caught up
.
Like a child we come running
Through the halls of Heaven
To the Holy of Holies
Doors are flung wide open
Joy is overflowing
In the halls of Heaven
We come running
We come running
Through the halls of Heaven
We come running
We come running
Through the halls of Heaven
.
Come on!
God tonight we’re here to meet You [in?] face to face
To pursue You with everything we have
‘Cause we know when we worship You show up
And You called us to come boldly before Your throne
Boldly into Your presence
Let’s sing this together
.
Face to face with the glory of God
And heart to heart with the One that we love
Face to face with the glory of God
And heart to heart with the One that we love
Oh, face to face with the glory of God
And heart to heart with the One that we love
Face to face with the glory of God
And heart to heart with the One that we love

Through the halls of Heaven
To the Holy of Holies
Doors are flung wide open
Joy is overflowing
In the halls of Heaven
We come running
We come running
Through the halls of Heaven
We come running
We come running
Through the halls of Heaven
.
We come running
We come running
Through the halls of Heaven
We come running
Can’t stop running
Through the halls of Heaven

In The Fire Lyrics




There’s a grace when the heart is under fire 
Another way when the walls are closing in 
And when I look at the space between 
Where I used to be and this reckoning
I know I will never be alone


There was another in the fire 
Standing next to me
There was another in the waters 
Holding back the seas
And should I ever need reminding
Of how I’ve been set free
There is a cross that bears the burden 
Where another died for me


There is another in the fire


All my debt left for dead beneath the waters 
I’m no longer a slave to my sin anymore 
And should I fall in the space between 
What remains of me and this reckoning 
Either way I won’t bow
To the things of this world
And I know I will never be alone


There is another in the fire 
Standing next to me
There is another in the waters 
Holding back the seas
And should I ever need reminding 
What power set me free
There is a grave that holds no body 
And now that power lives in me


And I can see the light in the darkness 
As the darkness bows to Him
I can hear the roar in the heavens
As the space between wears thin
I can feel the ground shake beneath us 
As the prison walls cave in
Nothing stands between us
Nothing stands between us


There is no other name
But the Name that is Jesus
He who was and still is
And will be through it all
So come what may in the space between 
All the things unseen and this reckoning 
I know I will never be alone


There’ll be another in the fire 
Standing next to me
There’ll be another in the waters 
Holding back the seas
And should I ever need reminding 
How good You’ve been to me
I’ll count the joy come every battle 
‘Cause I know that’s where You’ll be

Holy Ground Lyrics



Here as we wait
Seek Your face
Come and make Your throne upon our praise
Here in this place
Have Your way
The moment that we see You, we are changed
.
Show us Your glory
Show us Your glory
In wonder and surrender we fall down
Show us Your glory
Show us Your glory
Let every burning heart be holy ground

Here, not by power
Not by might
But only by the cross we come alive
Here, we’re undone
Overcome
By heaven’s love revealed before our eyes
.
Show us Your glory
Show us Your glory
In wonder and surrender we fall down
Show us Your glory
Show us Your glory
Let every burning heart be holy ground

Amazing love

My soul undeserving

Bring suffering
Lord, I will remember
What Calvary has bought for me
Both now and forever

As You Find Me Lyrics



I’ve been strong
And I’ve been broken within a moment
I’ve been faithful
And I’ve been reckless at every bend
I’ve held everything together
And watched it shatter
I’ve stood tall and I have crumbled
In the same breath
.
I have wrestled
And I have trembled toward surrender
Chased my heart adrift
And drifted home again
Plundered blessing
Till I’ve been desperate to find redemption
And every time I turn around
Lord You’re still there
.
I was found
Before I was lost
I was Yours
Before I was not
Grace to spare
For all my mistakes
And that part just wrecks me
.
And I know I don’t deserve this kind of love
Somehow this kind of love is who You are
It’s a grace I could never add up
To be somebody You still want
But somehow
You love me as You find me
.
Who am I
To think Your glory needs my praises
But if this borrowed breath is Yours Lord
Take it all
You are faithful and You are gracious
And I’m just grateful
To think You don’t need a single thing
And still You want my heart
.
I was found
Before I was lost
I was Yours
Before I was not
You wear the scars
For all my mistakes
And that part just wrecks me
.
Your love’s too good to leave me here
.
If You want my heart
I won’t second guess
‘Cause I need Your love
More than anything
I’m in
I’m Yours
Your love’s too good to leave me here
Your love’s too good to leave me

Whole Heart (Hold Me Now) Lyrics



Hold me now
In the hands that created the heavens
Find me now
Where the grace runs as deep as Your scars
.
You pulled me from the clay
You set me on a rock
Called me by Your Name
And made my heart whole again
.
Lifted up
And my knees know it’s all for Your glory
I might stand
With more reasons to sing than to fear
.
You pulled me from the clay
Set me on a rock
Called me by Your Name
And made my heart whole again
.
So here I stand
High in surrender
I need You now
.
Hold my heart
Now and forever
My soul cries out
.
Once I was broken
But You loved my whole heart through
Sin has no hold on me
‘Cause Your grace holds me now
.
And that grace
Owns the ground where the grave did
Where all my shame remains
Left for dead in Your wake
.
You crashed those age-old gates
You left no stone unturned
You stepped out of that grave
And shouldered me all the way
.
So here I stand
High in surrender
I need You now
.
Hold my heart
Now and forever
My soul cries out
.
Once I was broken
But You loved my whole heart through
Sin has no hold on me
‘Cause Your grace holds me now
.
Healed and forgiven
Look where my chains are now
Death has no hold on me
‘Cause Your grace holds that ground
And Your grace holds me now
And Your grace holds me now
And Your grace holds me now
And Your grace holds me now
.
Here I stand
High in surrender
I need You now
.
Hold my heart
Now and forever
My soul cries out
.
Here I stand
High in surrender
I need You now
.
Hold my heart
Now and forever
My soul cries out
.
Here I stand
High in surrender
I need You now
.
Hold my heart
Now and forever
My soul cries out
.
Here I stand
High in surrender
I need You now
.
Hold my heart
Now and forever
My soul cries out
.
Once I was broken
But You loved my whole heart through
Sin has no hold on me
‘Cause Your grace holds me now
.
Healed and forgiven
Look where my chains are now
Death has no hold on me
‘Cause Your grace holds that ground
And Your grace holds me now
And Your grace holds me now
And Your grace holds me now
And Your grace holds me now
.
Healed and forgiven
Look where my chains are now

Obsession | And My Heart Burns For You Lyrics



What can I do with my obsession?
With the things I cannot see?
Is there madness in my being?
Is it the wind that blows the trees?
Sometimes You’re further than the moon
Sometimes You’re closer than my skin
And You surround me like a winter fog
You’ve come and burned me with a kiss
.
And my heart burns for You
And my heart burns
.
And I’m so filthy with my sin
I carry pride like a disease
Oh, you know I’m stubborn, God, and I’m longing to be close
You burn me deeper than I know
And I feel lonely without hope
And I feel desperate without vision
You wrap around me like a winter coat
You come and free me like a bird
.
And my heart burns for You
And my heart burns for You
And my heart burns, oh, it burns, it burns for you
And my heart burns for You
.
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

Angels Lyrics



Looking around, they’re seeing all you’ve made
I’m staring out into your eyes
All of the sighting on my problems fade
They run away in your light
.
You’re there inside my questions, you’re there inside my pain
I’m filling up my lungs with your name
I’m counting all my blessings no matter what I face
And at the end of the day
.
I’ll be singing with the angels, with the angels, woah
I’ll be singing with the angels, with the angels
.
How could I stay inside my brokenness
When I get a glimpse of your high?
I’m holding on to all your promises
And you pull me into your arms
.
You’re there inside my questions, you’re there inside my pain
I’m filling up my lungs with your name
I’m counting all my blessings no matter what I face
And at the end of the day
.
I’ll be singing with the angels, with the angels, woah
I’ll be singing with the angels, with the angels
.
I’ll be, I’ll be singing holy
Holy, holy, holy
I’ll be, I’ll be singing holy
Holy, holy, holy
.
I’m counting all my blessings no matter what I face
And at the end of the day
I’ll be, I’ll be singing holy
Holy, holy, holy
.
I’ll be singing with the angels, with the angels, oh
I’ll be singing with the angels, with the angels
I’ll be, I’ll be singing holy
Holy, holy, holy
I’ll be, I’ll be singing holy
Holy, holy, holy

The Bridge Lyrics



Oh, you lead us home

.

Oh oh

.
The world’s getting darker by the day 
I’m on my knees but don’t know what to pray 
The broken things that broken people do
.
But knowing just how far You came for me 
Gives me hope for every soul I meet 
There’s no one so far gone that You can’t reach 
So reach through me 
Let them see, Lord, let them see
.
Your love is the bridge 
You built with a cross 
And Your truth is the light 
That searches for the lost 
Your grace won’t stop reaching 
Your mercy won’t let go
‘Cause Your love is the bridge 
And Your truth leads us home, oh
You lead us home, oh
.
You never told the broken they were whole 
You spoke the truth that healed their broken souls 
You’d never leave us here to fight alone
.
With love we earn the right to speak Your truth 
it’s not just what we say, it’s what we do 
I want to be a bridge that leads to You 
So reach through me 
Let them see, Lord, let them see
.
Your love is the bridge 
You built with a cross 
And Your truth is the light 
That searches for the lost 
Your grace won’t stop reaching 
Your mercy won’t let go
‘Cause Your love is the bridge 
And Your truth leads us home, oh
You lead us home, oh
.
No rescue so relentless 
No greater love than this 
Where sin leaves a canyon 
Your love builds a bridge
.
No rescue so relentless 
No greater love than this 
Where sin leaves a canyon 
Your love builds a bridge
.
No rescue so relentless 
No greater love than this 
Where sin leaves a canyon 
Your love builds a bridge
Your love builds a bridge
.
Your love is the bridge 
.
You built with a cross 
Your truth is the light 
That searches for the lost 
Your grace won’t stop reaching 
Your mercy won’t let go
‘Cause Your love is the bridge 
Your love is the bridge
.
No rescue so relentless 
No greater love than this 
Where sin leaves a canyon 
Your love builds a bridge

The Fire Lyrics



Father, you’re a raging fire,
You consume all thats in your path,
You know my secrets, you have seen my past
You burnt away my shame, it could not last 
.
One glimpse of your goodness,
Could last me a lifetime,
But you chose, to pour out all you have
Just to show me that you love me,
And you’re never gonna leave,
.
I can trust in who you are 
.
Father, your kindness has saved me
You paid my debt so I could be set free,
You healed my sickness, gave me joy for mourning
I was blind but now I see
.
One glimpse of your goodness,
Could last me a lifetime,
But you chose, to pour out all you have
Just to show me that you love me,
And you’re never gonna leave,
.
I can trust in who you are
.
I know you can do it,
I know you can do it,
I know you can do it,
Though the road ahead
Seems to hard to bear,
.
I know you can do it,
I know you can do it,
I know you can do it,
You’ve never let me down,
Your love casts out my fear

Yet Not I But Through Christ In Me Lyrics

What gift of grace is Jesus my redeemer
There is no more for heaven now to give
He is my joy, my righteousness, and freedom
My steadfast love, my deep and boundless peace
.
To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus
For my life is wholly bound to his
Oh how strange and divine, I can sing: all is mine!
Yet not I, but through Christ in me
.
The night is dark but I am not forsaken
For by my side, the Saviour He will stay
I labour on in weakness and rejoicing
For in my need, His power is displayed
.
To this I hold, my Shepherd will defend me
Through the deepest valley He will lead
Oh the night has been won, and I shall overcome!
Yet not I, but through Christ in me
.
No fate I dread, I know I am forgiven
The future sure, the price it has been paid
For Jesus bled and suffered for my pardon
And He was raised to overthrow the grave
.
To this I hold, my sin has been defeated
Jesus now and ever is my plea
Oh the chains are released, I can sing: I am free!
Yet not I, but through Christ in me
.
With every breath I long to follow Jesus
For He has said that He will bring me home
And day by day I know He will renew me
Until I stand with joy before the throne
.
To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus
All the glory evermore to Him
When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat:
Yet not I, but through Christ in me!
.
When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat:
Yet not I, but through Christ in me!
Yet not I, but through Christ in me!
Yet not I, but through Christ in me!

The arrows fly, ten thousand fall
Still, You protect me through it all
The waters rise, the oceans rage
Still, You’re the One the storm obeys

You are my shield, my hiding place
Almighty God, I will draw near
Your perfect love casts out all fear

This Blood Lyrics



There is a blood
That cost a life
That paid my way
Death its price
When it flowed
Down from the cross
My sins were gone
My sins forgot
.
There is a grave
That tried to hide
This precious blood
That gave me life
In three days
He breathed again
And rose to stand in my defense
.
So I come to tell you He’s alive
To tell you that He dries every tear that falls
So I come to tell you that He saves
To shout and to proclaim that He’s coming back for you
This life, this price, this blood, this one
.
Oh, there is a Blood
Oh, and it sights the blind
It heals the sick
The lonely, finds
Oh, it has the Power
To free the bound
As chains they fall
Upon the ground
.
So pour it out and
To cleanse my soul
And let its liquid Glory flow
Because it lives
To make me whole
I owe my life
I owe my all
.
So I come to tell you He’s alive
To tell you that He dries every tear that falls
So I come to tell you that He saves
To shout and to proclaim that he is coming back for you
.
And so I come to tell you He’s alive
To tell you that He dries every tear that falls
So I come to tell you that He saves
To shout and to proclaim that He’s coming back for you
.
This life
This price
This blood
This wine
This life
This light
This price
This blood
This
.
So I come to tell you He’s alive
To tell you that He dries every tear that falls
So I come to tell you that He saves
To shout and to proclaim that he is coming back for you
.
This life
This price
This blood
This wine
.
One more time, this life
This price
This blood
This wine
Thank you, Jesus

There Is A Name Lyrics



There is a name
Who reigns without contention
Whose power can’t be questioned or contained
.
With humble fame
He rules the earth and heavens
His glory knows no measure or refrain
And it’s bursting past the border lines of space
.
Jesus
Enthroned upon the praises of our hearts
Jesus
You’re the King and You’re the center of it all
.
There is a name
Reaching past the margins
Calling sons and daughters back to Him
.
And as He saves
We can hear the roar of Heaven
As prodigals are coming home again
.
Oh the triumph of His name will never end
.
Jesus
Enthroned upon the praises of our hearts
Jesus
You’re the King and You’re the center of it all
.
Jesus
Enthroned upon the praises of our hearts
Jesus
You’re the King and You’re the center of it all
.
For every eye will see
Every heart will know
There is no name above
The name of Jesus
.
Death could not hold Him down
No grave could keep Him bound
All sin and sickness bow
To the name of Jesus
.
For every eye will see
Every heart will know
There is no name above
The name of Jesus
.
Death could not hold Him down
No grave could keep Him bound
All sin and sickness bow
To the name of Jesus
To the name of Jesus
To the name of Jesus

Raise A Hallelujah Lyrics


I raise a hallelujah, in the presence of my enemies
I raise a hallelujah, louder than the unbelief
I raise a hallelujah, my weapon is a melody
I raise a hallelujah, heaven comes to fight for me
.
I’m gonna sing, in the middle of the storm
Louder and louder, you’re gonna hear my praises roar
Up from the ashes, hope will arise
Death is defeated, the King is alive!
.
I raise a hallelujah, with everything inside of me
I raise a hallelujah, I will watch the darkness flee
I raise a hallelujah, in the middle of the mystery
I raise a hallelujah, fear you lost your hold on me!
.
I’m gonna sing, in the middle of the storm
Louder and louder, you’re gonna hear my praises roar
Up from the ashes, hope will arise
Death is defeated, the King is alive!
.
Sing a little louder (Sing a little louder)
Sing a little louder (Sing a little louder)
Sing a little louder (Sing a little louder)
Let’s sing a little louder (Let’s sing a little louder)
Sing a little louder (In the presence of my enemies)
Sing a little louder (Louder than the unbelief)
Sing a little louder (My weapon is a melody)
Sing a little louder (Heaven comes to fight for me)
Sing a little louder (In the presence of my enemies)
Sing a little louder (Louder than the unbelief)
Sing a little louder (My weapon is a melody)
Let’s sing a little louder (Heaven comes to fight for me)
Sing a little louder!!
.
I’m gonna sing, in the middle of the storm
Louder and louder, you’re gonna hear my praises roar
Up from the ashes, hope will arise
Death is defeated, the King is alive!
Oh, I’m gonna sing, in the middle of the storm
Louder and louder, you’re gonna hear my praises roar
Up from the ashes, hope will arise
Death is defeated, the King is alive!
.
I raise a hallelujah
I raise a hallelujah
I raise a hallelujah
I raise a hallelujah!

.
Just begin to raise your own hallelujah
I can’t do it for you
There’s a song written on your heart only you can sing
And when you sing enemies flee
When you sing prison walls come falling down
When you sing heaven invades the earth
So just begin to lift up your hallelujah
Raise it like a banner
Raise it like a flag
Raise it in the middle of the storm
Let it rise, let it rise
Like a symphony to the King
Everything needs Jesus
We raise it all up
Sing a little louder!!
.
I raise a hallelujah
I raise a hallelujah
I raise a hallelujah
I raise a hallelujah
I raise a hallelujah (In the presence of my enemies)
I raise a hallelujah (Louder than the unbelief)
I raise a hallelujah (My weapon is a melody)
I raise a hallelujah (Heaven comes to fight for me)

Did You Feel The Mountains Tremble Lyrics



Did you feel the mountains tremble?

Did you hear the oceans roar

When the people rose to sing of

Jesus Christ, the risen One?

.

Did you feel the people tremble?

Did you hear the singers roar?

When the lost began to sing of

Jesus Christ, the saving One?

.

And we can see that, God, You’re moving

A mighty river through the nations;

When young and old return to Jesus

Fling wide, you heavenly gates;

Prepare the way of the risen Lord

.

Open up the doors. Let the music play

Let the streets resound with singing:

Songs that bring Your hope

Songs that bring Your joy

Dancers who dance upon injustice

.

Do you feel the darkness tremble?

When all the saints join in one song

And all the streams flow as one river

To wash away our brokenness?

.

And here we see that, God, You’re moving;

A time of jubilee is coming

When young and old return to Jesus

Fling wide, you heavenly gates;

Prepare the way of the risen Lord

.

We gonna dance in the river

We gonna dance in the river

We gonna dance in the river

We gonna dance in the river

The Power Of The Blood Lyrics



Two hands held the weight

When the weight was too much

Three nails held the world

As sin and Deity touched

.

The stream that bled salvation down

The healing fount’ that empties not

No victory can come without

The power of the blood of Jesus

.

Though for a single soul

You would shoulder the cost

Instead the sins of all

You bore on the cross

.

It was enough

The stream that bled salvation down

The healing fount’ that empties not

No victory can come without

The power of the blood of Jesus

.

This river of redemption flows

It washes every stain of sin

Our victory is here within

The power of the blood of Jesus

.

This is the power that changes me

This is the power that sets me free

I’m justified for eternity

In the blood of Jesus

.

This is the power that breaks the chains

That heals my wounds and takes my shame

For I am loved and called by name

In the blood of Jesus

In the blood of Jesus

.

The stream that bled salvation down

The healing fount’ that empties not

No victory can come without

The power of the blood of Jesus

You had been there all along

Open arms and open heart,

You knew the outcome of it all

When what I faced looked like it would never end

His ghost is a fire

Songs That Got Me Through The Year | 2018 – Praise And Worship.



Yeshua has seen me through another year. 2018 was the year where praise and worship morphed into the prophetic. So many gospel musicians released really prophetic sounds this year. And I saw Jesus move mighty in many areas of my life.


Every year, Jesus lets me know that there is more to him, his glory and his kingdom. He keeps revealing himself to me in the most glorious and ingenious ways. This year was no different.


In 2017, Jesus showed me the power of praise and worship to open new doors and I shared that list of earth shattering songs in this list.

Songs That Got Me Through The Year | 2017 – Praise And Worship


In 2018, Jesus moved far and wide and there were so many new songs released by contemporary gospel musicians. Christian music has certainly evolved, grown and developed in such amazing ways.


So, if I’m to look through my playlist and select some songs that really touched me, caused miracles and generally changed my life, this would look something like it.


PS: The songs are randomly listed with no grading from a long list of totally awesome songs.



Prophesy Your Promise – Bryan & Katie Torwalt

I saw the prophetic manifest in the most marvelous ways this year. Bryan and Katie of Jesus Culture just echo those sentiments in this powerfully moving and humbling song. In fact all the songs in the album are worth listening to. The album is titled Praise Before My Breakthrough. 



There Is A Name – Sean Feucht

There is really no name above the name of Jesus. At the name of Jesus, giants fall. People are changed. Nations are healed. When we call on the name of Jesus transformations occur. Yes! Jesus is the king of my life. He is the center and eternally enthroned on my heart. Sean Feucht, thank you for the miraculous album titled “Wild” in which this awesome song is found.



Zion Aaron Shust

There are times I felt alone. Times I felt misunderstood. Times I felt like a wanderer who would never find home. Aaron’s song strongly reminded me of the eternal covenant I have in Jesus. His song reminded that God who started a new work will see me to the end. That I’m not really alone. Jesus has me always and he will never leave me or forsake me.



While I Wait – Lincoln Brewster

Waiting can be one of the hardest things ever. I found that trusting God while waiting made it so much easier. I was reminded that Jesus is the God of impossibilities and he has me always. I was reminded to live by Faith and that miracles take time sometimes so I should hold on. Jesus is not done, so I won’t be done waiting. He will come through, of that I’m sure. Lincoln Brewster’s song off his superb album titled, “God Of The Impossible” is worth it.



Shelter – Vertical Worship ft. One Sonic Society

Oh my! There were moments during the year that I felt the earth under me literally shaking and going down under me. There were times I felt vulnerable and exposed. There were times I needed a place to hide from enemies, the world, myself and everything. There were times I wanted to escape. When the world felt too dangerous to live in. Vertical Worship‘s calming song, “Shelter” spoke to me so many times.



Stand In Your Love – Josh Baldwin

There were so many times I was afraid. Times when my fear almost paralyzed into inaction. Times when I didn’t want to let go of my past. When shame, guilt and negativity gripped at my insides. During those times, Josh Baldwin reminded me that there is a power that is greater than fear, greater than darkness, greater than death. The power of Jesus is above everything and anything. Jesus thank you for being more powerful than all my circumstances.



Cheta – Ada

Oh how easy it is forget that Jesus never fails especially when the storms of life hit. When uncertainty knocks at our door, it is easy to forget that we serve a God who never changes. A God who is the same yesterday, today and forever. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The creator of the heavens and earth. I pray that when the storms hit, you will be encouraged and know that Jesus is never late. He never fails and he is there for you. Ada, thank you for reminding me of these truths through the year.



In The Hands Of The Potter – Casting Crowns

2018, was a year where Jesus was really molding and shaping me. He chiseled, he cut, he patted, he broke, he restored, he shook, he hit, he renewed, he burnt and out of the process, I came out a better vessel. I’m certainly on the right path to perfection. Jesus, thank you for taking my unworthy parts into your hands and shaping me. Jesus thank you for using me as vessel, please keep using me. Keep molding this piece of clay and dust. I’m yours for eternity my King and master.



Nobody Loves Me Like You – Chris Tomlin

Jesus is love personified. Jesus is the definition of love. Jesus is where love starts and ends. Without Jesus there is no true love. Jesus is the center of love. Jesus helps us to love others better as we copy his example. Jesus please help me to love others the way you love me.
