Three Days

Three days

It was three days from My death to the moment I arose, just three days. Three very long days, but just three days.

“–and the Son of man will be delivered to the chief priests and the scribes, and they will condemn him to death, and deliver him to the Gentiles; and they will mock him, and spit upon him, and scourge him, and kill him; and after three days he will rise.” Mark 10:33-34

Some of you feel that your life will never be any better, that it will never change enough to satisfy. I hear you say that ‘this is the way it has been and it will never change.’ Despair has settled in and you have settled.

Three days.

That is all the time it took for Me to overcome Hell and the grave–to arise in Power and Victory! I took death and removed its sting that death not have any power over you that believe.

I defeated the grave that it may not hold you.

“The snares of death encompassed me; the pangs of Sheol laid hold on me; I suffered distress and anguish. Then I called on the name of the Lord: ‘O Lord, I beseech thee, save my life!” Psalms 116:3-4

Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; our God is merciful. The Lord preserves the simple; when I was brought low, he saved me. Return, O my soul, to your rest; for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.” Psalms 116:5-7

I wiped away fear, captured every tear; announcing to the Father that you are mine. Will you then remove the grave clothes? They don’t belong to you, if you belong to Me.

You see I wrought for you Victory.

For you to wallow in despair; not taking your place, nor receiving My Grace–it is a total waste of three days–given for you that you not have to waste–three days.

You have victory now!

So, are you ready? Get Set–

One, Two, Three–GO!

“For thou hast delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling; I walk before the Lord in the land of the living. I kept my faith, even when I said, ‘I am greatly afflicted.'” Psalms 116:8-10

“‘O death, where is thy victory? O death, where is thy sting?’ The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.” I Corinthians 15:55-58

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20

 

 

A Choice Ending

Tomorrow may be too late, for those who think toward a later date, to think about where their life will end; rest assured this life will end. You have my guarantee that your flesh will eventually fail–wear out like a garment, but your spirit will not die; it will live on eternally in joy or despair.

  • You choose the place
  • You choose the race

For time is running short and all must choose.

I have authority to grant you life. But a grant is given, by plea, to the one who holds the key.

“His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, that through these you may escape from the corruption that is in the world because of passion, and become partakers of the divine nature.” II Peter 1:3-4

Heaven or Hell?

You choose when you call upon Me. If you don’t call–

You chose.

“For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. Here indeed we groan, and long to put on our heavenly dwelling, so that by putting it on we may not be found naked. For while we are still in this tent, we sigh with anxiety; not that we would be unclothed, but that we would be further clothed, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who has given us the Spirit as a guarantee.” II Corinthians 5:1-5

“And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who has not the Son of God has not life.” I John 5:11-12

“Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. So we know and believe the love God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. In this is love perfected in us, that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as he is so are we in this world.” I John 4:15-17

“For as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, so also the Son gives life to whom he will.” John 5:21

“For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; the same Lord is Lord of all and bestows his riches upon all who call upon him. For, ‘every one who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved.'” Romans 10:12-13

“Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of man will give to you; for on him has God the Father set his seal.” John 6:27

“Seek the Lord while he may be found, call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have mercy on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.” Isaiah 55:6-7

“Therefore, brethren, be the more zealous to confirm your call and election, for if you do this you will never fall; so there will be richly provided for you an entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” II Peter 1:10-11

“The Lord is near to all who call upon him, to all who call upon him in truth.” Psalms 145:18

 

 

Yes, I AM

Pinpoint a time in your life when I was not available to you–it cannot be done. Look for a place where I have not been; I’ve visited them all. Even to the depths of Hell–

I AM

See Me as Savior–Yes, I AM

  • I was before you.
  • I go before you.
  • I walk beside you.
  • Even inside you–if you’ve called Me to be…

Yes, I AM

Unto the ends of the earth–I AM

So, is there any question that I can? Yes, I can and yes–

I AM!

“The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in shrines made by man, nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all men life and breath and everything. And he made from one every nation of men to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their habitation, that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel after him and find him. Yet he is not far from each one of us, for ‘In him we live and move and have our being’; as even some of your poets have said, ‘For we are indeed his offspring.’ Being then God’s offspring, we ought not to think that the Deity is like gold or silver, or stone, a representation by the art of imagination of man. The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all men everywhere to repent, because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed, and of this he has given assurance to all men by raising him from the dead.'” Acts 17:24-31

“And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12

“For David says concerning him, ‘I saw the Lord always before me, for he is at my right hand that I may not be shaken; therefore my heart was glad, and my tongue rejoiced; moreover my flesh will dwell in hope.” Acts 2:25-26

“Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life'” John 8:12

“Jesus said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.'” John 8:58

“–Before me no god was formed, nor shall there be any after me. I, I am the Lord, and besides me there is no savior.” Isaiah 43:10b-11

“O Lord, thou hast searched me and known me! Thou knowest when I sit down and when I rise up; thou discernest my thoughts from afar. Thou searchest out my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether. Thou dost beset me behind and before, and layest thy hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain it. Wither shall I go from thy Spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend to heaven, thou art there! If I make my bed in Sheol, thou art there! If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there thy hand shall lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.” Psalms 139:1-10
