hand

All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.

Matthew 11:27 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

The fullness of the Father’s in the Son;

The power and the glory, love and grace.

All things that are delivered of the One

Belong to both eternal in each case.

The mind can’t comprehend or hope to know

The language of the heart that’s spirit born.

You must go to the cross, you must let go,

You must be broken, beaten, crushed and torn.

When you make Christ your Lord you’re dead to sin;

Until that time the door to Heaven’s sealed.

Give all you are to Jesus to begin

To understand this mystery revealed.

To know your Father you must know His Son;

To know the Son you both must be as one.

~~~~~~~~~~~

REMEMBER: Surrender your will, relinquish your heart, yield yourself to Christ right now.

12-3-15 Not Like This Man

jesus-teaching

45 Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have ye not brought him? 46 The officers answered, Never man spake like this man.

John 7:45-46 KJV

NOT LIKE THIS MAN

The guards who went to capture Christ that day

Would never be prepared for what they heard.

The things they heard that Jesus came to say

Compelled their hearts and minds to both be stirred.

Not any of the prophets spoke this way

With such authority and truth were graced.

Twas as if God Himself each word did weigh.

The very air itself His words embraced!

Not one of all the guards their charge obey,

For Jesus had not reached His fullness yet.

Perhaps their feet and hands did then betray;

Perhaps they drank from thirst and mercy met.

No man had ever spoken like this Man.

Thank God we have His words and know His plan!

5-17-15 Grace and Truth

shackles

For the law was given by Moses, 

but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

John 1:17 KJV

            ~~~~~~~~~~~

The Lord gave Moses laws defining sin,

And spelled the things that man should never do,

But laws don’t teach forgiveness there within,

And do not mention grace the whole way through.

So once a year a lamb was sacrificed

To pay for all the sins men did accrue,

Then came along our Savior Jesus Christ,

To be the truth and give God’s grace to you.

He taught the way of love to all who’d hear,

And lived the fullness of God’s righteousness.

He gave His life, a sacrifice so dear,

And through this perfect Grace God’s love confess.

The substance of the shadows of the law

Lived as the Lamb of God without a flaw.
