Jesus is talking with His disciples where we pick up the narrative in Mark 9:35-38: “For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.” When He comes in His glory is the key of this address to the disciples. It is the first glimpse of the fulfillment of all history. Those who will reign with Christ invest their lives in that which will last. Those who are willing to confess Him today will be rewarded before the Father in heaven.

God Calling

God Calling – SIMPLICITY (the state of being simple; uncomplicated;
freedom from pretense) – “Simplicity is the keynote of My Kingdom.
Choose simple things always. Love and reverence the humble and
the simple. Have only simple things here. Your standard must never
be the world’s standard.”

KEEP CALM – Keep your Spirit-Life calm and unruffled. Nothing else matters. Leave all to Me. This is your great task, to get calm in My Presence, not to let one ruffled feeling stay for one moment. Years of blessing may be checked in one moment by that. No matter who frets you or what, yours is the task to stop all else until absolute calm comes. Any block means My Power diverted into other channels. Pour forth – pour forth – pour forth – I cannot bless a life that does not act as a channel. My Spirit brooks no stagnation, not even rest. It’s Power must flow on. Pass on everything, every blessing. Abide in Me. See how many you can bless each day.
Dwell much in My Presence.

Hebrews 9:11,12: “But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation. Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood of He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.” Redemption – the act of freeing or releasing by paying a price. Eternal – having infinite duration. Christ’s tabernacle is better than the Old Testament tabernacle . The good things to come include access to God. The greater and more perfect tabernacle is not a reference to Christ’s body but to the “true tabernacle.” The service of the Levitical priest obtained a limited, recurring, symbolic type of redemption. Christ, with His own blood, obtained eternal redemption. His sacrifice never has to be repeated because it is perfect.

GO FORWARD – Rest in Me, quiet in My Love, strong in My Power.  Think what it is to possess a Power greater than any earthly force.  A sway greater, and more far-reaching, than that of any earthly king.  No invention, no electricity, no magnetism, no gold, could
achieve one millionth part of all that you can achieve by the Power of My Spirit.  Just think for one moment all that means.  Go forward.  You are only beginning the new Life together. Joy, Joy, Joy.

1 Timothy 6:17-19: “Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, not to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy. Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share, storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.” Paul is referring to people who are already wealthy and is encouraging Timothy to tell these individuals not to be high-minded or proud and not to trust in uncertain riches. Only the living God can provide for all of our needs. Those with wealth are commanded to recognize God as the true source of their wealth and to be generous with their riches. The material blessings of God are to be enjoyed and used for the advancement of His kingdom, not for self-centered living. A believer’s daily obedience to God builds a good foundation for the time to come. The scriptures teach that a believer’s works will be evaluated to see what his or her life in Christ has produced. That is not to say we cannot enjoy the fruits of our labor, but when that overshadows our will to serve the Lord, herein, lies the issue. Special thanks to Pastor John Branning who was the inspiration for today’s Word.

Isaiah 60: 1,2: “Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the LORD will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you.” Isaiah’s prophecies often emphasize the contrast between light and darkness to symbolize the
contrast between eternal life and death, salvation and judgment.  I think we see this darkness more and more as we live in these end times. Living within the confides of God’s eternal glory does not guarantee we will not have problems for face sickness or even death. It does guarantee He will provide a way out and He will not place on us more than we can bear. It has been a long week for this nation – hard to comprehend the evil that shows it’s face. Stay strong brothers and sisters – WE can overcome in His Name!
