    Jesus is Mighty to Save

    Hebrew 7:17-26

    By the word “save” we understand the whole great work of salvation, from the first holy desire onward to complete sanctification. The words are multum in parro, which implies mercy in one word. Christ is not only “mighty to save” those who repent, but He is able to make men to repent by His Grace. He will carry those who believe to heaven; but He is, moreover, mighty to give men new hearts and to work faith in them. He is mighty to make the man who hates holiness love it, and to constrain the despiser of His name to bend the knee before Him. Surely, this is not all the meaning, for the divine power is equally seen in the after-work.

    The life of a believer is a series of miracles wrought by “the Mighty God.” The bush burns, but is not consumed. He is mighty to keep His people holy after He has made them so, and to preserve them in His fear and love until He consummates their spiritual existence in heaven. Christ’s might does not lie in making a believer and then leaving him to shift for himself; but He who begins the good work carries it on; He who imparts the first germ of life in the dead soul, prolongs the divine existence, and strengthens it until it bursts asunder every bond of sin, and the soul leaps from the earthly and perfected in glory.

    Believer, here is encouragement. Are you praying for some beloved one? Do not give up in your prayers, because Christ is “mighty to save.” You are powerless to reclaim the rebel, but your Lord is Almighty. Lay hold by faith on that Mighty arm, and so move it into perfecting His purpose. Does your own case trouble you? Fear not, for His strength is sufficient for you. Whether to begin with others, or to carry on the work in you, Jesus is “Mighty to save;” the best proof of which lies in the fact that He has saved you. What a thousand mercies that you have not found Him mighty to destroy but mighty to Save!

    Meditation: Therefore He is able also to save to the uttermost those who come unto God by Him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them.” Hebrew 7:25

    Prayer Point:

    1. Oh Lord, let your the mighty hand deliver me from weakness and unbelieves.

    2. Grant your saving Grace to every member of my family; I shall be saved and my husehold.

    3. Let every clutch of satan in my life or household be broken in Jesus name.

    Remind God of His Infallible Promises

    2 Samuel 7:18-29

    God’s promises were never meant to be thrown aside as waste paper; He intended that they should be utilised. God’s gold is not miser’s money, but is minted to be traded with. Nothing pleases our Lord better than to see His promises put in circulation; He loves to see His children bring them up to Him, and say, “Lord, do as thou hast said.”

    We glorify God when we plead His promises. Do you think that God will be any poorer for giving you the riches He has promised? Do you dream that He will be any the less holy for giving holiness to you? Do you imagine He will be any less pure for washing you from your sins? He has said “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” Faith lays hold upon the promise of pardon, and it does not delay, saying, “This is a precious promise, I wonder if it be true?” but it goes straight to the throne with it, and pleads, “Lord, here is the promise, ‘Do as thou hast said.’” Our Lord replies, “Be it unto you even as you have desired.” When a Christian grasps God’s promise, if he does not take it to God, he dishonours Him; but when he hastens to the throne of grace, and cries, “Lord, I have nothing to recommend me but this, ‘Thou hast said it;’” then his desire shall be granted.

    Our heavenly Banker delights to cash His own notes. Never let the promise rust. Draw the word of promise out of its scabbard, and use it with holy violence. Think not that God will be troubled by your importunately reminding Him of His promises. He loves to hear the loud outcries of needy souls. It is His delight to bestow favours. He is more ready to hear than you are to ask. The sun is not weary of shining, nor the fountain of flowing. It is God’s nature to keep His promises; therefore go at once to the throne with “Do as thou hast said.”

    Meditation:

    Then said the Lord unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it. Jeremiah 1:12

    Prayer Point:

    1. Take a moment to remember God’s promises according to His words concerning your healing, prosperity, promotion, protection, marriage, etc., and say, “Do as thou hast said.”

    2. Give God thanks for answered prayers according to His promises.

    The Almighty God is your Helper

    Isaiah 41:8-20

    This morning let us hear the Lord Jesus speak to each one of us, saying: “I will help thee.” “It is but a small thing for me, your God, to help you. Consider what I have done already. What! do you think I cannot help you? Why think so when I bought you with my blood. What! do you still think that I can’t help you? I have died for you; and if I have done the greater, will I not do the less? To help you is the least thing I will ever do for you; I have done more, and will do more. Before the world began I chose you. I made the covenant for you. I laid aside my glory and became a man for you; I gave up my life for you; and if I did all this, I will surely help you even now. In helping you, I am giving you what I have bought for you already. If you need of a thousand times as much help, I would give it to you; what you require is little compared with what I am ready to give. It may be much for you to need, but it is nothing for me to bestow to you. ‘Help You?’ Fear not! If there is an ant at the door of your granary looking for grains to feed on, would they not find some wheat from the surplus? Are you not little compared with the abundance of my resources? “For the earth is the Lord’s and fullness thereof…” Like the tiny insect you are already by the door of my all-sufficiency, and I say to again, ‘I will help you.’

    Oh my soul, is not this enough? Do you need more strength than the omnipotence of the United Trinity? Do you want more wisdom than exists in the Father, more love than displays itself in the Son, or more power than is manifest in the influences of the Spirit? Bring now your empty vessel! Surely this as well shall be filled. Hasten, gather up your wants, and bring them here: your emptiness, your woes, your worries, and I will meet you at the point of your needs. Behold, the river of God is full for your supply; what more are your needs? Go forth, my soul, in this your might. The Eternal God is your helper! “Fear not, I am with thee, oh, be not dismay' I am thy God, and will still give thee aid.”

    Meditation:

    “Do not be afraid, you worm Jacob, little Israel, do not fear, for I myself will help you,” declares the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.” Isaiah 41:14

    Prayer Point:

    1. Thank you Lord for always being there for me – my Ebenezer.

    2. I release all my divine providence and divine helper to my ways in Jesus name, amen.

    Jesus Christ is all that I Need

     

    Revelation 14:1-5, 21:22-27

     

    The apostle John was privileged to look within the gates of heaven, and in describing what he saw, he begins by saying, “I looked, and, lo, a Lamb!” This teaches us that the chief object of contemplation in the heavenly state is “the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sins of the world.” Nothing else attracted the Apostle’s attention so much as the person of that Divine Being, who hath redeemed us by His blood. He is the theme of the songs of all glorified spirits and holy angels.

     

    Child of God, here is joy for you as you look to see the Lamb. Through your tears your eyes have seen the Lamb of God taking away your sins. Rejoice, then. In a little while, when your eyes shall have been wiped from tears, you will see the same Lamb exalted on His throne. It is the joy of your heart to hold daily fellowship with Jesus; you shall have the same joy to a higher degree in heaven; you shall enjoy the constant vision of His presence; you shall dwell with Him forever. “I looked, and, lo, a Lamb!” Why, that Lamb is heaven itself. Rutherford rightly said, “Heaven and Christ are the same thing;” because to be with Christ is to be in heaven, and to be in heaven is to be with Christ. That prisoner of the Lord very sweetly writes in one of his glowing letters “Oh my Lord Jesus Christ, if I could be in heaven without thee, it would be a hell; and if I could be in hell, and have thee still, it would be a heaven to me, for thou art all the heaven I want.” It is true, is it not, Christian? Does not your soul say so?

     

    A song Writer writes:

     

    Not all the harps above can make a heavenly place,

     

    If God his residence remove,

     

    or but conceal his face.

     

    All that is needed to make you blessed, and supremely blessed, is “to be with Christ

     

    Meditation:

     

    "And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof". Revelation 21:22-23

     

    Prayer Point:

     

    1. I receive grace for more intimate relationship with Christ.

     

    2. Let the efficacy of Lamb’s sacrificial blood avail for me.

    Glorious Rest for the Believer

    Hebrews 4:1-11

    How different will be the state of the Believer in heaven from what it is here! Here he is born to toil and suffer weariness, but in the land of the immortal, fatigue is never known. Anxious to serve his Master, he finds his strength unequal to his zeal: his constant cry is, “Help me to serve thee, Oh my God.” If he be thoroughly active, he will have much labour; not too much for his will, but more than enough for his power, so that he will cry out, “I am not wearied of the labour, but I am wearied in it.” Ah! Christian, the hot day of weariness does not last forever; the sun is nearing the horizon; it shall rise again with a brighter day than you have ever seen upon a land where they serve God day and night, and yet rest from their labours. Here, rest is but partial, there, it is perfect. Here, the Christian is always unsettled; he feels that he has not yet attained. There, all are at rest; they have attained the summit of the mountain; they have ascended to the bosom of their God in Heaven. Oh toil-worn labourer, are thinking of when you will rest forever! Can’t you conceive it? It is a rest eternal; a rest that “remaineth.” Here, my best joys bear “mortal” on their brow; my fair flowers fade; my dainty cups are drained to wastes; my sweetest birds fall before Death’s arrows; my most pleasant days are shadowed into nights; and the flood-tides of my bliss subside into ebbs of sorrow; but there, everything is immortal; the harp abides unrusted, the crown unwithered, the eye undimmed, the voice unfaltering, the heart unwavering, and the immortal being is wholly absorbed in infinite delight. Happy day! happy! when mortality shall be swallowed up of life, and the Eternal rest for the Lord’s people shall begin. Oh lord I shall not miss it, in Jesus name.

    Meditation:

    “There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.” Hebrews 4:9

    Prayer Point:

    1.   Pray for grace to remain faithful to attain the rest reserved for the faithful in Christ.

    2.   By the power in the name of Jesus I overcome every state of unrest within my soul, I speak ‘peace be still”.

    Recover the Lord where you lost Him

    2 Chronicles 15:1-15

    Tell me where you lost the company of Christ, and I will tell you the most likely place to find Him. Have you lost Christ in the closet by restraining prayers? Then it is there you must seek and find Him. Did you lose Christ by sin? You will find Christ in no other way but by the giving up of the sin, and seeking by the Holy Spirit to mortify your member in which the lust dwells. Did you lose Christ by neglecting the Scriptures? You must find Christ in the Scriptures. It is a true proverb, “Look for a thing where you dropped it, it is there.” So look for Christ where you lost Him, for He has not gone away. But it is hard work to go back for Christ. Bunyan tells us, “the pilgrim found the piece of the road back to the Arbour of Ease, where he lost his roll, the hardest he had ever travelled.” Twenty miles onward is easier than to go one mile back for the lost evidence.

    Take care, then, when you find your Master, to cling close to Him. But how is it you have lost Him? One would have thought you would never have parted with such a precious friend, whose presence is so sweet, whose words are so comforting, and whose company is so dear to you! How is it that you did not watch Him closely every moment for fear of losing sight of Him? Yet, since you have let Him go, what a mercy that you are seeking Him, even though you mournfully groan, “Oh that I knew where I might find Him!” Go on seeking, for it is dangerous to be without the Lord. Without Christ you are like a sheep without its shepherd; like a tree without water at its roots; like a sere leaf in the tempest—not bound to the tree of life. With your whole heart seek Him, and He will be found of thee: only give thyself thoroughly up to the search, and verily, you shall yet discover Him to your joy and gladness.

    Meditation: “And they entered into a covenant to seek the Lord God of their fathers with all their heart and with all their soul”. 2 Chronicles 15:12

    Prayer Point:

    1.   I receive grace to recover my peace, joy, purity and first love where I lost it.

    2.   Lord, help me to abide in intimate fellowship with You continually.

    Blood of Jesus Speaks Better Things

    Hebrews 9:11-28

                                                                    

    As a shepherd Abel sanctified his work to the glory of God, and offered a sacrifice of blood upon his altar, and the Lord had respect unto Abel and his offering (Genesis. 4:2). This offering, as a type of our Lord isexceedingly clear and distinct. Like the first streak of light which tinges the east at sunrise, it does not reveal everything, but it clearly manifests the great fact that the sun is coming. As we see Abel, a shepherd and yet a priest, offering a sacrifice of sweet smell unto God, we discern our Lord, who brings before his Father a sacrifice to which Jehovah ever hath respect. Abel was hated by his brother without a cause; and even so was the Saviour: the natural and carnal man hated the accepted man in whom the Spirit of grace was found, and rested not until His blood had been shed. Abel fell, and sprinkled his altar and sacrifices with his own blood, and therein sets forth the Lord Jesus slain by the enmity of man while serving as a priest before the Lord. “The good Shepherd layeth down his life for the sheep.” Let us weep over him as we view him slain by the hatred of mankind, staining the horns of his altar with his own blood. Abel’s blood speaketh. “The Lord said unto Cain, ‘The voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.’” The blood of Jesus hath a mighty tongue, and the import of its prevailing cry is not vengeance but mercy. It is precious beyond all preciousness to stand at the altar of our good Shepherd! to see Him bleeding there as the slaughtered priest, and then to hear His blood speaking peace to all His flock, peace in our conscience, peace between Jew and Gentile, peace between man and His offended Maker, peace all down the ages of eternity for blood-washed men. Abel is the first shepherd in order of time, but our hearts shall ever place Jesus first in order of excellence. Thou great Keeper of the sheep, we the people of your pasture bless you with our whole hearts when we see you slain for us. Let the Blood of Jesus speak for you this day and continually.

    Meditation: "And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel". Hebrews 12:24

    Prayer Point:

    1.   I appropriate the unprecedented sacrifice of Jesus upon my soul, spirit & body.

    2.   Let the blood of Jesus silence every blood that is speaking against me and my family.
