“He would have died just for you, if you were the only person on the planet, He would have come to save you.”
“His Death heals our brokenness.”

Romans 3: 25

New Living Translation
For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood. This sacrifice shows that God was being fair when he held back and did not punish those who sinned in times past,

English Standard Version
whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins.

Berean Study Bible
God presented Him as an atoning sacrifice through faith in His blood, in order to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance He had passed over the sins committed beforehand.

Berean Literal Bible
whom God set forth as a propitiation through faith in His blood, for a showing forth of His righteousness, because of the forbearance of the sins having taken place beforehand,

New American Standard Bible 
whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness, because in the forbearance of God He passed over the sins previously committed;

King James Bible
Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

Last night I had a nightmare. I was running away from some demonic entity. The thing chased me, as I was running up a spiral staircase. I couldn’t outrun it and as I stopped on a landing to catch my breath, the thing caught up to me. Immediately, in my dream, I began to say: The Blood of Jesus.   The thing reached out to give me something but I did not take it, as I continued to rebuke it. It turned and fled back down the stairs. Then my Wifey shook me awake.

The shed blood of Jesus, which poured forth from His broken body as He hung on the cruel Roman cross, changed everything in the universe. It spells the doom of the fallen Cherub’s kingdom.

It opened the gateway for us to once again have a relationship with Father God. His shed blood paved the way for the Holy Spirit to come and indwell men and women, something which had not been given.

He came to die just for you and me even if we were the only two people on this planet He would have come to save us.

Jesus’ death heals our brokenness. “By His stripes we are healed.” It is His power, the power of His shed blood, which not only atones for our sins but holds back, keeps in check our depraved sin nature.

Every person on this planet is broken in some way. The sin nature has corrupted every person, we are all caught up in it, to a greater or lesser degree.

The blood of Jesus not only cleanses us from sin but gives us His power to have dominion over it.

So with all of this in mind. This is why we worship Him. This is why we lift our hands to our redeemer in praise an adoration. We willingly bow our heads and bend our knee to the One who was sent, by the Father, to save all mankind.

There is a redeemer and He lives!

When all else fails… Look for The Rider on the White Horse

I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True.
With justice he judges and wages war. 
His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns.
He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.  
He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God.  
The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.” 
 He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: 
king of kings and lord of lords.
Revelation 19
There are those among us who are faint of heart.
There are those among us who have grown weary of life, of its trials and tribulations, of its heartbreak, and with some folks, as the years are tallying up, no hope.
There are wars and rumors of wars raging all over our planet.
Earthquakes shake the ground in all parts of the globe.
There is a spirit of lawlessness that permeates the world.
What are we to do?
When all else fails. When we fell pressed in, defeated, weary of life, and without hope. May I suggest we turn to this passage in our Bibles, which is future, which heralds the end of the old system and ushers in the new. It is our future hope and it will come pass.
For what was written will come to pass. What was foretold will unfold.
The King, Yeshua/Jesus and the armies of heaven, will ride to earth on white horses that fly and we will be with Him.
The Rider on the White Horse, Jesus, will finally defeat the one who hates all of mankind and seeks to rob, kill and destroy us all.  It is Satan’s system, the beast system, that we see manifesting everywhere.
The Fallen One, is the author of the chaos we see on a global level.
The King will return. There is no other rescue plan in motion and certainly mankind will not be able to undo what has been done.
I would admonish all of us to take a moment right now, and sit silently before the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Not in prayer, or praise, or our endless requests,  but be still and know that He is God. 
Lay our agenda at His feet and be still.  Wait on the Lord…
Maranatha!

Sunday Bun – The Hour is Late

I’m reposting this blog from the other day as I believe people need to read this. Obama is changing the very fabric of what is/was our Christian nation. Unless we stand up to what amounts as judicial fiat, and absurd declarations from “King Obama” we will lose yet another major battle in the culture war.
Hopefully this is the issue, a line in the sand, that will awaken the church. I honestly thought last years supreme court decision allowing for Gay marriage would have done it. The hour is late. Wake up…. L.A.

Obama administration tells public schools to let transgender students use bathrooms of their choice.

Rainbow White House

Commentary & Analysis 

by 

L. A. Marzulli

The Obama administration will send a letter to every public school district in the country telling them to allow transgender students to use bathrooms and locker rooms that match their chosen gender identity, as opposed to their birth certificate.

There is an agenda in this country and it is in full lock-step with what the LGBT—Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender—have been pushing for years now.

This law shows us a government that is out of control, out of touch, and in short acts like an oligarchy. Forget the will of the people.

Michell I's LunchIf schools do not comply the Justice Department will more than likely withdraw federal funding—think Michelle O’s  lunches here. Maybe that’s a good thing….

Would you eat this?

With all the issues facing us, the open border, the 20 TRILLION debt, the ongoing mess, which is Afghanistan, the imploding of the Middle East, the lack of jobs and the 92 million people out of the work-force, the millions of families living on food stamps, the onerous tax burden the middle class bears, the drug epidemic that infests our country, the threat of an EMP by North Korea, The Iranian nuke deal, which actually is no deal at all…. I could go on.

The point is this. Out of all the issues this administration could focus on, this is what Obama chooses,what he focuses on, the Gay agenda, and by doing so I predict he will create absolute havoc in the public schools.

In closing todays short post. Will there be push-back? Will the governors rise up? Will the people say enough? Why is it that this administration is catering to less than 1% of our population?

There are military personal that commit suicide everyday and the numbers are on the rise.

http://www.kcrw.com/news-culture/shows/to-the-point/military-suicides-on-the-rise

These young men and women have given the best years of their life and need help but they’re not  getting it.  This is how depraved and out of touch this administration is, with Obama acting like an absurd King…. God help us.

Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all. Colossians 3: 11

I I would suggest a reading of the entire chapter of Colossians, 3.

It is just amazing, as Paul outlines what we are to put away and what we are to embrace and what holds that embrace together is love.

However, I want to call your attention to the above passage because when it was written, nearly 2000 years it was simply astonishingly revolutionary.

Paul is pointing our to us that when we come to Messiah everything changes. Messiah, Yeshua, Jesus, is the great unifier. Before He came the Jews were separated from the Gentiles—everyone who wasn’t Jewish—and were forbidden to even eat with them under the rules and prohibitions set by the Pharisee’s interpretation of the Mosaic law.

Now we hear something that most Jews and in fact everyone else for that matter who would hear it, must have wondered about.

Paul goes on to point out there is: not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all.

In other words the lines of differentiation have been broken down. This declaration, in essence is a new dispensation and thus, it helps usher in the Church Age, which is the current dispensation of grace and mercy.

This is why the Good news, what we read in the first 4 books—of what we as Christians call The New Testament—is so profound, as it proclaims that Jesus is a God for all men and women.

While it might not seem like such a big deal to us living now, it was a really big deal to those living back then and hearing this concept brought forth for the first time.

We know that when the King returns He will heal the nations…. all the nations.

There is only one Messiah, only one who shed His blood to die for us. Only one who fulfilled the myriad of prophecies that foretold His birth and then His death.

His name is above all other names and in Him we find life and life more abundantly.

He breaks down the wall of ethnicity, hatred, prejudice and fear.

He is the one true unifier.

He is the one all mankind has been waiting for.

If you think you know Him but you don’t know Him, then you don’t know Him! What I mean by this is there are many folks who think they know who Yeshua/Jesus is but they don’t have a personal relationship with the Lord of our hearts.

He stands at the door of your heart and knocks and waits to be invited in.

He is bigger than our fears, and the burdens that we carry. He is the one who can set us free. He loves us, therefore we can learn to love one another. There is no separation between us…but he—Yeshua/Jesus—is all in all.

Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what isyour life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.  James 4:14

 

“O Lord, make me know my end
and what is the measure of my days;
let me know how fleeting I am!
Behold, you have made my days a few handbreadths,
and my lifetime is as nothing before you.
Surely all mankind stands as a mere breath!
Selah
Surely a man goes about as a shadow!
Surely for nothing they are in turmoil;
man heaps up wealth and does not know who will gather.

Psalm 39: 4, 6

I was driving on the 405 Freeway near Westwood, in Los Angeles and there is a cemetery that is near the freeway. Thousands of people are buried there from the wars that our country has fought.  I would imagine that many of these people interred here have been forgotten. Who remembers their voices, their hopes and dreams, their struggles?

The point is this, as the scriptures above so succinctly point out, we are but a mist that appears and then vanishes away.

Yet we are told that He knows our every need. That He cares for us and  He will present us before his presence with singing and joy.  Knowing that our time here is short, what should we focus on? As Francis Schaeffer would posit; How then should we live?

I believe the answer to this question is what Yeshua/Jesus stated when He said: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and love your neighbor as yourself. Basically, love is the golden rule. The entire human experience  comes down to this one word, love.

A few weeks ago I wrote a Bun about the love chapter in 1st Corinthians, where Paul tells us, Faith, hope and love but the greatest of these is love.

We walk through this world knowing that we won’t take any of the things we amass with us.  All of our possessions will be given away to someone else after we depart from here. The one gift we can give to those around us, that is lasting, that can touch the depths of another’s soul, is love.

It is what we remember, what remains steadfast and unchanging, along with faith, it is the “currency” of the heavenly realm.

There will be earthquakes in diverse places…

Thanks Watchman Eric…

7.4 magnitude #earthquake just shook the coast of Ecuador, according to the @USGS. No #tsunami threat

Clearly we have a tuned up seismic issue and phase taking place. India, two in China, Guatemala, now this, all in a handful of days.

Most of us are familiar with this passage of scripture. The back story is this. Yeshua/Jesus has come out of the Temple in Jerusalem and some of his disciples are with him. They ask him point-blank, what will be the signs of the end of the age.  Jesus then gives them punch list of items that will be the signs of the end of the age.  Here’s the entire list:
 
For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.  And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.  For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 
I’ve talked about the phrase, earthquakes in diverse places, many times, and the fact is that before modernity there was no way to track earthquakes in diverse places. In other words, how would someone living in the Galilee know of a 9.0 temblor happening in Japan 500 years ago? They wouldn’t. That being said, in the present day, my Iphone pings me when any earthquake larger than a 6.0 happens anywhere in the world.
Ring of FireSo in the last few days there has been an outbreak of earthquakes, all along the ring of fire, which is the area of the world from Alaska including our west coast, Mexico’s west coast and then South America’s west coast. It swings out to the island of Vanuatu, then to New Zealand, Australia and up to Japan.
So, is this business as usual or something more? Is this another sign of the times that herald the Return of The King, or just a another flurry of earthquakes that happen from time to time, so there’s nothing to be concerned about?
I wonder how many people on the planet are even aware of the prophecy above? What percentage of the 7 Billion people alive today know about this prophecy and are looking a the “punch list?” How many are looking at current events like this and thinking about the return of The King? How many long for a cosmic regime change from under the oppression of the beast system and its ruler, The Prince of this world, Satan, to the glorious appearing of The Rider on the White Horse, with the armies of heaven, who will bring about the greatest event in all of history, the Return of the King, Yeshua/Jesus and the setting up of the Millennial kingdom on earth, with Jerusalem as its capital!
There are now earthquakes in diverse places and I would put to you that they are happening with greater frequency and severity than ever before.
Are we in the last days?
Many of us believe so, as the world seems out of balance in so many ways.
In closing todays Bun.  When I travel and speak at conferences I have been asking the folks this question; How many of you think the world is a better place now than 15 years ago. I wait a few seconds scanning the crowd for a hand or two. There’s not one. In all the places I’ve been, not one hand goes up.
People know something is not right in the world. For those of us who watch the signs, the “punch-list” Jesus gave us that will herald His return, the signs seem to be very clear. Even so come Lord Jesus, come…. Maranatha!

The gates of hell shall not prevail! Matthew 16:18

The above scripture is incredible and I believe it is for both the body of Messiah and heralds the coming kingdom, as well as each of us individually. In other words the gates of hell shall not prevail against the church collectively and you and me individually. 

This is a profound promise stated by our Messiah—the One Who Was Sent to us, to free us from the bondage of sin and death—that we shall prevail!

It is a rallying cry to those of us who are oppressed, put down, and perhaps feel defeated by life.

While we look around at the chaotic world in which we live, with heinous acts like the Genocide being practiced against Christians throughout the Middle East and elsewhere, or the Satanic beheadings being carried out by the drug Cartels just over our southern border, it is easy to think that the Fallen One is gaining the upper hand.

In my opinion, we are living in a window of time unlike any other, as I believe we are in the last days. It is the time of The Fallen One, and I believe he is sending his dark agents out in the world to create some of the havoc we see manifesting now.

However, even though Satan will seat his man, the Antichrist, who will be the literal fulfillment of the Seed of the Serpent, in the rebuilt temple in Jerusalem, it is the last gasp of a kingdom that will soon perish from this earth, for at least 1000 years.

When Jesus uttered this statement, it was a declaration stated with certainty and finality. The gates of hell shall not prevail…. period!

In closing todays Bun:  In Romans 7, Paul tells us that he does the things he does not want to do. In other words, Paul, like the rest of us sins. Thank God for Romans 8, as Paul declares that there is now no condemnation for those of us who are in Messiah.

While this is not an excuse to sin, it does point us to the one who died in our place, so that we may know grace and know grace more abundantly.

Whatever is going on in our lives, when we feel pressed in and cornered, when it seems the enemy comes in like a flood, remember, the battle belongs to the Lord and the gates of hell shall not prevail against us!
