Romans 8: 38 & 39 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Years ago when I first came to the Lord, when I became born again and spirit filled, I stumbled on these words in Romans and wept. Why, because I had spent almost 17 years in the occult, New Age, and Guru worship. I was demonized, in the sense that when the Lord took me from the enemy’s camp, the fallen one and their cohorts did not want to lose me. I was hounded, literally for several years.
At first the attacks were horrific and I thought I was loosing my mind. I would clutch the Bible to my chest at night and pray myself to sleep. Unfortunately both of my mentors did know enough about spiritual warfare, and so I was basically defenseless. I did not know about the power of proclaiming the Blood Of Jesus, which would come later, and when I found that teaching, quite by accident in the form of a tract that was stuck on a check-out turn-style at a super market, I was liberated!
Before that revelation of freedom came, I repeated those words found in Romans 8, above. They were my new mantra, the promise that no matter what happened nothing, and I mean nothing could separate me from the love of God which is Christ Jesus.
I look back at what I went through 30 years ago and realize that I made it through that difficult time. I am whole, hale and hearty, because of HIS love, HIS power, HIS promise. I now spend all of my time warning others of the New Age and the coming Great Deception and all because of HIM.
Nothing can take us away from Him. He is able to keep us from falling and to present us with unspeakable joy to the creator of the Universe. My faith has deepened in 30 years. I’m not the same man who I was before…. old things have – thankfully – passed away. I am a new creature in Christ and nothing will ever be able to take that away!
Who is the comforter of our souls? Who knows our joys and sorrows, our pains and triumphs, our every thought? I once had a vision of the Lord, while driving. I was up against it and feeling very depressed. There he was in front of me and I saw his eyes, holy eyes that were burning with holy love for me. I wept…
Holy love burning for us
Holy love sacrificed for us
The holy love of Jesus …. the holy love of God.
In closing today’s Bun. Some of us are going through some tough times, financial, health issues, marital problems, one of the kids is hooked on drugs. Whatever it is we should know and understand that nothing, life or death, angels or principalities, powers nor things present or things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Hold fast to that promise, declare it over ourselves daily! We have the victory!
