As ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. KJV Matthew 10:7 -- I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. KJV Matthew 16:19 -- Ye are come Ö unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, KJV Hebrews 12:22 On my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: KJV Acts 2:18 -- That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. KJV 1 Corinthians 2:5 --

Pastor's Corner
Isaiah 27:1 In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.
Jeremiah 25:31 A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth; for the LORD hath a controversy with the nations, he will plead with all flesh; he will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith the LORD.
Deuteronomy 32:41 If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me.
When you stop to consider that the Lord God will let no unforgiven evil or evil doer go unpunished it should cause your heart to cry out, OH LORD HAVE MERCY! If it were not for the grace and mercy of God it would be YOU that would be at the receiving end of the Almighty blade. The devil (that Leviathan serpent of old) DESERVES to be slaughtered for he has slaughtered MILLIONS. And the wicked of the earth who hold no godly sorrow, remorse, or repentance in their hearts for filling the earth with violence, pain and suffering SHOULD be sent to the fires of damnation AFTER the Lord has slain them from off the earth. BUT THE MEEK SHOULD INHERIT THE EARTH! Love your enemies enough to cry out for mercy upon them EVEN AS YOU WAGE SPIRITUAL WARFARE AGAINST THE PRINCIPALITIES THAT USE THEM!
Judges 7:18 When I blow with a trumpet, I and all that are with me, then blow ye the trumpets also on every side of all the camp, and say, The sword of the LORD, and of Gideon.
Ephesians 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:)
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
THE ONLY QUESTION LEFT IS: ARE YOU USING YOUR SWORD DAILY? Do you have a battle cry? Have you submitted to being in the army of God? Is Christ your Gideon commander, and the word of God your OFFENSIVE weapon? If we stand on the side of the Lord, then the sword HE SWINGS will never, never, never, EVER strike us down.

A man came to the Master one day pleading for the Him to come and rescue his son from the clutches of the demons. Above the crowd he shouted, "Teacher, I beg of you to look at the son (huion) of me, BECAUSE he is the only one born (monogenees) to me!"[1] He had already brought him to the ministers of Christ to be delivered and when they did not succeed his desperation drove him to the Christ for help. He was not driven to him RELIGIOUSLY because He was the healer, but rather because HE DID NOT WANT TO LOOSE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON. His son was irreplaceable, unique, and therefore held a special place in his heart! He was his monogenees huion; only-begotten son. He was the only heir who could succeed him and tend to his family. If his son died there very likely might not be another one to replace him!
When Jesus Christ was born of the Father, The Holy Spirit of God, the Scriptures show that among the many terms the Spirit used to describe Him was monogenees! The Apostle John, inspired by the Spirit of God, says, "By this was manifested the love of the God in us, BECAUSE the son (huion) of Him, the only-begotten (monogenees), God has sent into the world, in order that, we might live through Him."[2] Jesus Christ is Godís monogenees! How important such a son was to the Father! How precious in His sight he was that He should declare for all to hear, "This is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased."[3] There was never one born like him before him, and there would never be one born like him after Him! One son, one access to the Father.
And whereas one father cried in desperation, ĎPlease save my sonís life!í because he was monogenees, THE FATHER willingly did what Abraham had done centuries before and "offered up the monogenees" [4] to a sacrificial death. God allowed the devil, demons, and sinners to KILL His monogenees FOR US!!! Let it never be forgotten that there is GOOD reason why Christ sits at the right hand of the Father forever; and that, whether we can fully grasp it or not, God has called Jesus monogenees para patros (only-begotten of Father)[5], ton huion ton monogenee (the son the only-begotten) [6], and also monogenees theos (only-begotten God).[7] The One that we serve, we worship, and we adore RULES ON THE THRONE FOREVER because He is uniquely God-born, God borne and God-worthy!

The following is a short two-part repeating operatic chorus that the Lord dropped into my heart this week [the first part is a declaration, the second part an affirmation and reply]:
The wages of sin is DEATH, they say,
The wages of SIN is death, they say,
The WAGES of sin is death, they say,
And the Lord doesnít love you ANY more!
BUT! The gift of God is ETERNAL life,
Oh! The gift of God is eternal LIFE,
Yes! The GIFT of God is eternal life,
And my sins donít matter any moreÖ.
I have heard this short melody in my heart for 5 days straight, and so far it has just not gone away. The comfort that flows into my soul when I hear it is like soothing oil being poured over an open wound. Why? Because, there is PEACE in knowing your true state.
Firstly, as Christians we live under the Lordís blessing and umbrella. Jesus died, Jesus took care of all our burdens, and Jesus paid THE FULL PRICE for sins -- past and present and future. The barrier between HUMANITY and DEITY has been erased; especially, to all that are in Christ. Whereas, we could only look forward to judgement from a righteous God who had been offended, we are now free to RUN into the arms of a rejoicing Father who is DESIRING TO EMBRACE US.
Yet, along the road, on either side, are the voices of the people of the world Ė who can not understand a LOVING God Ė and the voices of the religious who cannot fathom the DEPTHS of the mercy and the forgiveness of a wonderful Savior. The opponents (of GRACE) can only sing one part of the Scripture; the first part of this song. They see cause, and they see effect, but they cannot see THE LIFEBOAT. Yes we jumped, fell, or were pushed into the tumultuous waves of the ocean of sin and therefore seem doomed to drown; but Godís Son has come that we might sing a new song ABOARD HIS HEAVENLY YACHT!
The devil never brings up your sins unless he is trying to divide you from the Love of God. The self-righteous never bring up your sins unless they are trying to bring vengeance (which is Godís responsibility) in the name of justice. The world never brings up sins except to use it as a tool of manipulation or intimidation; control is the objective.
BUT GOD says, over and over, I want to WASH IT, and to SEPARATE IT, and TO FORGET IT, and to BURY IT, and to FORGIVE IT. Hereby we can tell the spirit of CHRIST from the spirits of Anti-Christ; GOD works to RESTORE but SATAN accuses and JUDGES. Hear God! Sing a new song! Sing the song of the REDEEMED.
