A weekend share, best get reading and sharing if led

f6be285f2d1392559b829d2ffc076b1f-1559737155.jpgWhat have we gained by the knowledge of Christ? While in the ‘world’, where we with ‘position’ were we “justified’? A major contributor who simply wrote as he was led was Paul. By all laws, he was deemed ‘perfect.’ Are you?
Let us take a short stroll in The Word: “Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man think that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more: Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; as concerning the righteousness which is in the law, blameless. But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ! For IN Him, what is the endless gain? We are here but for a season with reason. What is yours? We have touched on this before; we are here to learn Love. This may seem a mere ‘flighty’ statement, but consider this: “God is Love.” Yes, there are gifts we have received, the greatest of these is Love! For we have been grated Faith, Hope and Love, the greatest of these is Love. We can break it down further: We believe and hold on to the belief and knowledge that this current existence is ‘limited.’ Even in The Word, the oldest individual on Earth was Methuselah, yet I ask the question “where is he now?” We may yet consider this and meditate for a minute. IF, he is still in existence, where is he now? We may at times question so much. Jesus came as The example, how He lived, so must we strive to do.
When Jesus went up the mount with chosen disciples for so many reasons, He knee just who would write and who would confirm what occurred.
“After six days Jesus took Peter, James and John with him and led them up a high mountain, where they were all alone. There he was transfigured before them. His clothes became dazzling white, whiter than anyone in the world could bleach them. And there appeared before them Elijah and Moses, who were talking with Jesus.
Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” 6 (He did not know what to say, they were so frightened.)
Then a cloud appeared and covered them, and a voice came from the cloud: “This is my Son, whom I Love. Listen to Him!”
Suddenly, when they looked around, they no longer saw anyone with them except Jesus.” Mark 9:2-8

trans·fig·u·ra·tion

1. a complete change of form or appearance into a more beautiful or spiritual state.

o Christ’s appearance in radiant glory to three of his disciples (Matthew 17:2, Mark 9:2–3, Luke 9:28–36).
noun: Transfiguration; noun: the Transfiguration

There are many reasons we share this, so many times in The Word, there are examples of what happened told by those present. If we think on it Judas Iscariot was not taken up the mount. Jesus knew, for He had been told just who and what would be done at a time yet to come. Brings us to contemplate why He would choose Judas Iscariot as a ‘disciple.’

The Sin of Judas Was Not the Betrayal


Continually, he sought what was to his advantage, on so many occasions we questioned the Love which was shown at the time of Christ.
But we only touch on this and can round it up with the statement they Jesus made:
When evening came, Jesus was reclining at the table with the Twelve. And while they were eating, he said, “Truly I tell you, one of you will betray me.”
They were very sad and began to say to him one after the other, “Surely you don’t mean me, Lord?”
Jesus replied, “The one who has dipped his hand into the bowl with me will betray me. The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born.”
Then Judas, the one who would betray him, said, “Surely you don’t mean me, Rabbi?”
Jesus answered, “You have said so.”
Matthew 26:20-25

God knows ALL! There are so many reasons to center our trust on Him. PRIOR to its occurrence, Jesus already knew. In the garden of Gethsemane in anguish for what he was about to go through He wept and moaned in passion Luke 22:44 Jesus Christ experienced hematohidrosis while praying in the garden of Gethsemane before His crucification as mentioned in the Defenders Bible by Physician Luke as “and being in anguish he prayed more earnestly and His sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.”

God has perfect knowledge of us, and all our thoughts and actions are open before him. It is more profitable to meditate on Divine truths, applying them to our own cases, and with hearts lifted to God in prayer, than with a curious or disputing frame of mind. That God knows all things, is omniscient; that he is every where, is omnipresent; are truths acknowledged by all, yet they are seldom rightly believed in by mankind. God takes strict notice of every step we take, every right
step and every by step. He knows what rule we walk by, what end we walk toward, what company we walk with. When I am withdrawn from all company, thou knowest what I have in my heart. There is not a vain word, not a good word, but thou knowest from what thought it came, and with what design it was uttered. Wherever we are, we are under the eye and hand of God. We cannot by searching find how God searches us out; nor do we know how we are known. Such thoughts should restrain us from sin.
Ps 139:7-16
And we return to the words of Paul they we started with: “Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ.” Philippians 3:4-8

Let us get busy:
Father, we humbly approach Your throne of grace. We are in no way worthy, even as Paul stated he was born into statute, he held the coats of those who stoned Stephen to death. Acts 7:54-8:2 We come before You today and ask that You cleanse us with the blood that was shed for us. Every blow, every drop of blood Jesus shed for me. I thank You for healing and forgiving me, I confess to doing wrong in my actions and attitudes. Father forgive me, I lay before You, a grain of sand on the beach of life (https://bible.knowing-jesus.com/topics/Sand) In Your Kingdom, set my foot on The Rock to stay and I will praise You for always. You are my all, my everything, You define me, You created me. LORD use me to do Your will. Fill me till I overflow with Your Love, I pray in Jesus’ name. Father for those I may have ‘feelings’ against for whatever reason, I allow it in Jesus’ name to roll of my back, as You have done with me. Forgive me as I forgive others (Matthew 5:24) As I forgive others, wash my sins away. I glorify You for Your Love, it is ALL! LORD I need it, I desire it, fill me with it until it spills over I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen
