Revelation

The Unveiling of Jesus Christ

Of all the sixty-six books that comprise our Bible, the last book is meant to thrill and exhilarate the believer like none other. A beautiful Christ is unveiled while a company of overcoming saints is seen rising into the fullness of Christ. The book of Revelation is exciting, powerful, and dynamic. But it must be more to us than merely an unveiling of events to come. Revelation must be an experience of encountering the living Christ. God is ready to unveil this book to those who are ready to receive it, eat it, and live fully in the splendor of Christ. The unveiling is more than a vision given to John, but is also meant to be an inward discovery, a delightful unveiling within you. This is not a drama of Satan’s worst, but a supernatural drama of God’s best, pouring through his beautiful Son, Jesus Christ. Revelation carries one revelation alone: Christ unveiled in his people. To read this book with any other focus is to miss the entire center of its meaning. There are other truths waiting for you to discover, but only after centering our gaze on the Magnificent One. A joyous blessing rests upon the one who reads this message and upon those who hear and embrace the words of this prophecy, for the appointed time is in your hands. Revelation 1:3 TPT

Psalm 5:3 says, ³At each and every sunrise you will hear my voice as I prepare my sacrifice of prayer to you. Every morning I lay out the pieces of my life on the altar and wait for your fire to fall upon my heart. Every emotion of our hearts is reflected in the Psalms with words that express our deepest and strongest feelings. Sighing is turned to singing and trouble into triumph. The Psalms provide comfort and joy, leading us to the place where worship flows. When discouraged or downcast, we can take new strength from reading them. They charge our batteries and fill our sails. Their thunder stirs us, and sweet melodies move us into the sacred emotions of a heart on fire. Dark rain clouds of grief turn to bright rainbows of hope as we meditate on Davids soul subduing songs. The Psalms are clearly poetic. They are praises placed inside poetry that spill out of a fiery passionate heart. The Psalms free us to become emotional, passionate, sincere worshippers. These 150 poetic masterpieces give us an expression of faith and worship. They become a mirror to the heart of Gods people in our quest to experience His presence.

The book of Luke is a glorious gospel penned by one of the early followers of Jesus. It has been described as the loveliest book ever written giving us a very full picture of life and ministry of Jesus. Luke applied scrupulous accuracy to all he wrote, to ensure that what we read is factual. Being a physician, Luke learned early on the need to exhibit compassion and mercy toward others. This gospel is perhaps the most compassionate, love filled account of the life of Jesus. Luke provides us with rich details of Jesus love of children, the forsaken, and His ministry to women even though this was controversial in the culture of his day. Luke shares Jesus teachings on prayer, forgiveness, and our obligation to demonstrate mercy and grace in dealings with others. The book of Luke is still read today by the lovers of God because as the Mercy Gospel and we all need mercy. The Book of Acts, also written by Luke, takes up the story where the book of Luke leaves off. It provides us with the startling details of the birth, the church and the early years of expanding the kingdom of God on earth. It begins in the upper room with 120 disciples and explains the explosive outpouring of the Holy Spirit resulting in tongues, prophecy, miracles, salvation, and the birthing of countless churches. Acts provides us with the story of Paul s three missionary journeys, illustrating the spread of the gospel, addition of new believers, miraculous answers to prayer, signs and wonders and deliverance. God is working in power today through His yielded lovers. This inspired account of church history awakens our souls with transforming power and gives us courage to be witnesses for Christ wherever He sends us!

God's Favorite Place on Earth

Publisher: David C Cook
ISBN: 1434705587

Page: 208
View: 3883
When He came to earth, Jesus Christ was rejected in every quarter in which He stepped. The Creator was rejected by His own creation. “He came to His own and His own received Him not,” said John. For this reason, Jesus Christ had “no where to lay His head.” There was one exception, however. A little village just outside of Jerusalem named Bethany. Bethany was the only place on earth where Jesus was completely received. God’s Favorite Place on Earth is a retelling of Jesus’ many visits to Bethany and a relaying of the message it holds for us today. Frank Viola presents a beautifully crafted narrative from the viewpoint of Lazarus, one of the people who lived in Bethany with his two sisters. This incomparable story not only brings the Gospel narratives to life, but it addresses the struggle against doubt, discouragement, fear, guilt, rejection, and spiritual apathy that challenges countless Christians today. In profoundly moving prose, God’s Favorite Place on Earth will captivate your heart with its beauty, charm, and depth. In this book you will discover how to live as a “Bethany” in our world today, being set free to love and follow Jesus like never before.

“How long, O Lord?” “When will you answer my prayer?” “Why must I wait so long for your promise to be fulfilled?” The Christian journey is not endless bliss with perfect relationships and an abundant financial portfolio. Perfection can only be found in Christ. Even though lovers of God experience fullness of life, they still face unexpected trials, unpredictable difficulties, and seemingly unsolvable problems. Every child of God will have a wilderness experience, but not everyone has to have a wilderness wandering. In The Wilderness, Brian and Candice share some of their difficult seasons as tribal missionaries in Central and South America where they encountered demonic powers, lost their possessions in a flooding river, and experienced their daughter being bitten by a venomous snake. Combined with the wilderness encounters the Israelites faced, these stories will help you understand your own challenges of faith, delayed answers to prayer, and miraculous interventions that display God’s glory. God wants to bring you from the wilderness to a miracle. You will make it through to the other side and discover God’s heart of love for you!

A Godly Life

View: 7972
Paul's two letters to the Thessalonians are deeply personal. Although he was encouraged by their faith, hope, and love, Paul was still mindful of their vulnerability. So he wrote to build their spiritual muscles, helping them live faithfully while awaiting Christ's return. Full of encouragement and exhortation, their prophetic insights will keep you focused on what is truth as we look to Christ alone to be our faithful strength--no matter how difficult the future may appear. The book of Titus reminds us that right beliefs should impact every area of our lives--relationships, work, community--for right living always accompanies right doctrine. In today's culture, we need this prophetic reminder that the grace that saves us is the same grace that empowers us to live a life of good works! Finally, Philemon is a letter written with one purpose: to bring reconciliation between two brothers in Christ. We should be grateful to God for gifting us this letter because the dignity of every human being is brought forth powerfully in the story of Philemon and Onesimus--a story of forgiving love.What treasures are found in the pages of these letters! They will leave you richer in your spiritual life and empower you to persevere until the day Jesus returns in glory.

Matthew

Our Loving King

Page: 112
View: 7067
Four hundred years of silence. Where was the promised Messiah? The Jewish people were waiting for word of the prophets to come true, for they prophesied that he would come. Then the angel Gabriel announced his birth. Wise men sought him. Herod wanted to kill him. John the Baptist presented him to Israel. God anointed him. Satan cruelly tempted him. Then the King came into the Jewish meeting house and announced: I am here! I have come to set you free and to wash away sins, And liberate those who love and follow me. It is believed that Matthew was the first apostle to write a gospel, possibly as early as 50 AD. He was a wealthy tax collector who profited greatly from his duty of representing Rome. And then one day, the Man from Galilee stood in front of him and said, Come follow me.

Each day contains an excerpt from the Psalms and then a prayer from the heart, providing an expression of faith and worship for sincere worshipers. Open your heart as you open the pages of this book. Here you will find God as your shelter of strength. “As I’m hidden within your greatness, I discover your eternal purposes. In love and humility I bow before you, my awe-inspiring God. The way you watch over me, infuses me with confidence and courage. You are my source; I draw life from the waters of your love. Walking step by step with you brings me joy unlike I’ve ever known. Your Word illuminates my path, and wherever I go, I flourish. No matter the season, I’m blessed—established firmly in you.” (Inspired by Psalm 1:2)
