Here is what ripples through me in unspeakably JOY!!!


Glory!!! I CANNOT be silent!

Jesus is of God! Amen. From God He has come! Ok…granted you are like “Ok?”

I will point something out that possibly as of yet has not hit you full on!

Where did we just state Christ was from? Did we earn the ‘right’ to freedom? No! Definitely not.

Let no Man decieve themselves and believe that they do not sin! We live in sin! The one among us without ‘sin’ let them be the first to speak….

There! You lied!

“If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.”

1 John 1:8

“As it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one.”

Romans 3:10

“Indeed, there is no one on earth who is righteous, no one who does what is right and never sins.”

Ecclesiastes 7:20

We could go on and on and on. Ever seen a silver butterfly flying? Ut es, there are ornaments, even thrown, after this comment I am sure technology will attempt to prove me wrong! But as in NATURAL, breathing and real!

Point made. I hope!

We are adopted, Amen. To What house do you belong? What are The House rules?

I live in a house, rules I tell myself were made to be broken. The consequences? Or should I say the crunchy-quences. There are! And…I will let you mull that over.

And I have the keys of Hades and of Death. “Write the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which will take place after this (Revelation 1:18 – 1:19 NKJV)

We do not need to fear because Jesus Christ is superior to death, hell and the grave. He has the key of hades and of death and He has authority over death and the world of the dead. He is Lord over all things. All power belongs to Him and He has delivered us from the fear of death.

Nothing can happen without God’s consent and if God be for us, who can be against us? As long as you are a believer, every pain you suffer will always work out for your own good. That is the word of God. If God allows us to have our own way all the time, we will unknowingly harm ourselves but God’s will, will always prevail over our own will. If there is no test, trial, temptation and judgement we will not grow, be refined or made purer and closer to the image of Christ.

Blessed be the Lord our God who has delivered us from death and the fear of death. Spiritual death has no hold over us and any pain we suffer here is just a temporary pain! Be brave, be bold, be strong and firmly make up your mind that to die is gain and to live is Christ. Stop being afraid to go to heaven but pray to fulfill your destiny before you go.

I was very young when the Lord impressed that Scripture upon my heart. I know from deep within my heart that to die is gain and to live is Christ. It helped me to loose the fear of death and I simply do not react to things the way most people would. Even when I am in the deepest darkest pit, I rejoice and delight in Christ. I celebrate the Lord at all times and I rejoice in my salvation. I also rejoice because of heaven – my eternal home. Glory to God, we are blessed indeed!

Beloved, reject fear because Jesus has the keys of hades and death and He loves us beyond our comprehension or imagination. May great grace be upon us in Jesus name.

The Bible clearly presents Jesus Christ as being one with the Father (John 10:30), a Member of the triune Godhead who set aside His rights as God and took on human flesh to dwell among us (Philippians 2:5–11; Galatians 4:4–5). Therefore, it is right to call Him Savior and Lord (Luke 2:11; 2 Peter 3:18; Jude 1:25). However, a few passages also refer to Jesus as our brother (Hebrews 2:11; Romans 8:29; Mark 3:34). In order to fully understand the concept of Jesus as our brother, let’s look more closely at each of those passages:

• Hebrews 2:11 says, “For he who sanctifies and those who are sanctified all have one source. That is why he is not ashamed to call them brothers” (ESV).

The word translated “brothers” is the word used for blood relatives, but it also refers to Christians. The generic term brother in Scripture usually also includes sisters. In this passage, the writer of Hebrews is explaining how the perfect God-Man, Jesus, could call imperfect humans His brothers and sisters.

This is more easily understood in terms of physical relationships. Jesus explained spiritual realities by telling Nicodemus that he must be “born again” (John 3:3). He used this physical term because we all understand birth. When two babies have shared the same womb or the same father, they are of the same family. They carry similar DNA, inherited traits, and rights to claim parentage. When a human being is born into the family of God, through faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus, God becomes our Father (Romans 8:15; Galatians 4:4–6). This happens through an act of the Holy Spirit who moves into our spirits and begins to change us (2 Corinthians 5:17). God is also the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ, and we share in that relationship as adopted children. Jesus, our brother, purchased with His blood the right for us to call His Father our Father. He is not ashamed to call us brothers because His righteousness is imputed to us, making us blameless as He is blameless (2 Corinthians 5:21).

• Romans 8:29 says, “Those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.”

Some cults have misinterpreted this verse to mean that Jesus was only the first of God’s many adopted children. However, in the Bible, the word firstborn does not always refer to physical or even spiritual birth; rather, being “firstborn” implies preeminence and position, as it is used in Psalm 89:27: “I will appoint him to be my firstborn, the most exalted of the kings of the earth.” In Jeremiah 31:9, God calls the nation of Israel His “firstborn son.” So when Paul uses the term firstborn in Romans 8:29, he means that Jesus holds the preeminent position of “only begotten Son of God” (John 3:16) and that, through His obedience to the Father, Christ made it possible for His holy Father to adopt unholy human beings as His own children. The resurrection of Christ was the first of many to follow, as God gathers His children home (1 Corinthians 15:20–23).

• In Mark 3:34–35, Jesus declares that those who follow Him are His brothers: “He looked at those seated in a circle around him and said, ‘Here are my mother and my brothers! Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother.’”

The setting for this statement is a house where Jesus was teaching. His physical family had begun to worry about Him, and they had come to take Him home with them. As they waited outside the packed house, messengers informed Jesus of their presence. Seated around Jesus were the disciples. His statement told everyone that, while earthly relationships are important, spiritual relationships are those that last. From then on, He would be focused upon establishing those eternal relationships with everyone who trusted in Him.

It is important to note that the qualifier for being considered Jesus’ brother or sister is not the mental exercise of “believing,” since many in the room with Jesus in Mark 3 would have considered themselves believers in Him. The qualifier for being a brother or sister of Christ is “doing the will of the Father.” The ultimate will of the Father is that we love, trust, and obey His Son (John 3:36; 2 Thessalonians 1:8; Romans 2:7–8). When we believe in our hearts the gospel of Jesus Christ and surrender our lives to His lordship, God adopts us into His family and considers us “joint heirs” with His Son, Jesus (Romans 8:17; 10:9–10). Our heavenly Father wants His children to bear a family resemblance, and He gave us the perfect example in our big Brother, Jesus Christ.

Jesus paid the price for us !

Key point!

And I have the keys of Hades and of Death. “Write the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which will take place after this (Revelation 1:18 – 1:19 NKJV)

This blows my mind! The keys have been earned, they are taken!

If my Big Brother has something, it is mine by default!

Mmhmm, Jus’ sayin’
