Awaiting The Command by Jon McNaughton

“Do you think I cannot call on my Father, and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels? But how then would the Scriptures be fulfilled that say it must happen in this way?
Matthew 26:53-54 New International Version (NIV)

The Crucifixion of Jesus was not a tragedy, it was an achievement.

Can you imagine the determination of Jesus in his march into Jerusalem knowing that torture and death awaited Him? And think of the Father’s pain at seeing His Son insulted, beaten, mocked and killed.

But they knew it was the only way they could fulfill the legal demands of the law, and break Satan’s death grip on humanity. If God had not withheld His hand at that moment, we would have been doomed to an eternity in darkness.

Love the Lord, you His saints!

I may sound pessimist, but the human race has not learnt from the sins of the past. Human beings have advance in the forms of cruelty and specially with the children, Mathew 19:14 Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Not until all these evil doers are destroyed from the face of the Earth we are condemned to suffer until we destroy ourselves.

“Behold, I am meek and humble of heart.” What is meekness?

Meekness is “power under control.” Just because someone has the power to knock my block off does not mean he is entitled to, and it does not mean he is under any obligation to do so. When Adam & Eve fell, God Almighty would have been within His Rights to end… Read more »

After the Great Flood, although God put a rainbow in the sky as a message that he would never again punish humanity and all living creatures with such a flood, that doesn’t mean He wouldn’t use other methods of punishment. Human depravity has now plummeted to such depths, I sometimes think even God has abandoned us.

We all have our purpose in GOD’S will. (Job 42:2) We practice to embrace our life in thankfulness and know HE is LORD. Just like JESUS did. I can’t control all of my circumstances, (1 Thessalonians 5:18) but, I can control how I respond to all of them. (Proverbs 20:5) With thankful thoughts of HIS purpose for all to know HIS unconditional love. I am the manifest presence (Psalm 139:7–10) to all I encounter during my time on earth.
