The Risen Christ Appears/ Expose Darkness be filled with the Spirit/ Worldly Entanglements, excuses
DECEMBER 12, 2021: SHALOM!!!
For You, Lord, have made me glad through Your work;
I will triumph in the works of Your hands.
- READ MARK 16:9-20:
-16:9-20: There were two early manuscripts that did not contain these verses as part of Mark's Gospel, but all other manuscripts that have been discovered contain them...
- another form: Christ's Resurrected Body transcends not only in a physical space or time but He can be there one second but the next He can't bee seen...
16:15: The Great Commission go out and be fishers of men and baptizing everyone in the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit...Gave them all different tongues to spread the Gospel!!!
-New tongues: the ability to speak other languages the Disciples were given this Authority by Yeshua and is what inspired the Gospel and how we got in in the first place...
16:18: Spiritual; Battles!!! see Luke 24:51 notes of the Ascension of Christ!!!
Oh, clap your hands, all you peoples!
Shout to God with the voice of triumph!
READ Ephesians 5:8-19
5:8-10: We must judge what the world says is reasonable on the basis of what the Lord says is true...
5:11-14: not only separate ourselves from the darkness but also expose it, but in order to expose this evil we must first come out of our hiding...Gain confidence in the Lord and preach His good Words do good and shun evil...
5:15-17: Do not abandon the world but keeping ourselves in Christ is what we are supposed to do and stay away from the evil as much as possible...
5:18-20: Following repentance is followed up with huge thanksgiving to the Lord, Christ our God!!!
5:19-20: Quoting scripture and singing hymns are not spiritual instead true humility and submissions to the Lord comes the absolute fear of the Lord, knowing He is the One who sits at the heavenly throne!!!
READ LUKE 14: 16-24:
14: 16-17: This parable is operating on tow levels here telling us about both the First and Second Coming of Christ...end of the age the Marriage Supper of the Lamb!!!
14:18-20: excuses meaning Yeshua was saying many people are too in love with the worldly cares and possessions to accept the truth of the Kingdom of Heaven...
14:21-23: Those in the streets and lanes seem to be indicating the gentiles who accepted Christ after the faithless Jews rejected Him...lastly those outside the Church replacing those within who have rejected their own Baptism!!!
Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
