Wigs Word of God Today 5-7-2013
Rebuke Satans advances to relish in Christ’s Saving Grace of Truth.
Then he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” And they said, “Believe in the LORD Jesus and you and your household will be saved.” So they spoke the Word of the LORD to him and to everyone in his house. He took them in at that hour of the night and bathed their wounds; then he and all his family were baptized at once. Acts 16:30-33
When He comes He will convict the world in regard to sin and righteousness and condemnation: sin, because they do not believe in Me; righteousness, because I am going to the Father and you will no longer see Me; condemnation, because the ruler of this world has been condemned. John 16:8-11
Acts 16:22-34, Psalm 138 & John 16:5-11
The urgency felt to proclaim your belief in God’s Only Son caused your soul to tremble and your mind to race until that moment when you shout, “I do believe. What must I do to be saved?” It is no different than the guard who sat in horror thinking he would be the reason for such an escape of prisoners but the two ran not from the imprisonment of suffering for Christ but instead surrendered to the punishment for the cause of Truth. This urgency you felt to say yes to Christ is the urgency you should feel in placing everything at the Foot of His Cross contemplating not the desire of sin but the surrender to Salvation for the obedience of faith, hope and love of charity.
Jesus explains His Spirit’s Role as the Advocate who by the hope of the Disciples will be the One Who prosecutes the world for their refusal of believing in Jesus. John eloquently explains that although Jesus was found guilty and was hung on a Cross in disgrace, the Truth of God’s Righteousness has and always will overcome evil for Jesus rose to take His Rightful place next to our Father Who art in Heaven. Satan may rule the world but Christ’s death indicates He has been condemned by God and therefore has not power over the man woman or child who turns to the Truth in surrender. You know, the feeling you get to rebuke Satan’s advances to relish in Christ’s Saving Grace of Truth enacting obedience to live in faith praying for hope embraced by God’s love. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray we always believe in Your Son’s Truth to share the Salvation of love to overcome sin. Day eight of a Novena of prayers for Regina Roig-Romero. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Greg Bishop has constant prayers. LORD from Psalm 141:8 I chant- “For my eyes are upon You, O LORD, my LORD; In You I take refuge; do not take away my soul.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
I am yours in Christ,
†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed†
In Christ we find the Truth of the Father’s rest– John 16:5-11
Speaking the Truth can cause grief
By the souls lack of righteousness and sleep
For I must go to the Father to greet
Those here the Spirit will know who believe
In Me the Christ Who must sit to agree
Better that I go than desire that of Me
Grief will know the Advocate of belief
Sent to you to allow Truth to conceive
He Who will convict the world of sin
Those who fail to surrender to win
The Salvation I offer by My death to begin
Eternal Life in heaven by the Father’s grin
No longer will you see Me in the nest
My Spirit will work miracles to mesh
Condemnation for the ruler of the flesh
In Christ we find the Truth of the Father’s rest
