Greetings in Jesus' name! I hope this email finds you growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The purpose of these emails is to discuss our Lord, our relationship with Him and how we can grow in the grace and knowledge of Him. Secondly, this grace and knowledge should bring us closer to each member of the body of Christ both in our local gathering places and abroad. These truths trandscend denominations and races. It does not show preferential treatment of the rich and may not be politically correct. I nor any individual is the sole possessor of all the truth but together we will be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that we might be filled with all the fulness of God. I endeavor to send these emails a few times a week. There are no specified days, but I will send them as often as I can. If you know of someone that could benefit from these or may enjoy them you have my permission to redistribute them in print or electronically (email). You may also send me their email and I will add them. If you do not wish to receive these emails in the future please respond with REMOVE in the subject line. God bless you all.
Jesus Christ, the son of man came to the earth to redeem those who are His. His death on the cross made it possible for man (human beings) to be bought back from sin and death. You may be one that belongs to Christ. The evidence is a desire to give your life to Him and allow Him to live His life through you. The first step in the process of giving your life over to Christ is being born again. There are no special words to say nor anything you must do to be born again. You must, simply, believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God and that by believing you have life in His name (John 20:31). If you believe this truth welcome to the family! There some things you must know as you begin your new life. Understand this, that you are no longer a creature of sin but a new creature, made in the image of God (2Cor (5:17) Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. Your very nature is no longer the same for you are now a child of God (Galatians (6:15) For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. Who are you? Let's see.
You are foreknown by God (Romans 8:29). This means that before the foundation of the world (age or time) we were known by God. Ephesians 1 says According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, to the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: that in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: in whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: that we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory. (Ephesians 1:4-14) We were found "in Him" before the foundation of the world. God had already decided who was to be His and Christ was sent to purchase or redeem them from sin and death. Christ's death on the cross was not an accident but the plan of God. It was foretold in type as early as Genesis when God provided a sacrifice for man's nakedness in the garden. People who have not come to the knowledge of Christ need a covering upon them so that they will be accepted by the Father. Jesus is our covering. And He has been since before the foundation of the world. God forknew us and provided a way for us to be with Him for all eternity.
By the grace of God I will take up where I left off in a day or so. Please pray for me and these emails of encourgement that they will continue as long as the Lord Jesus wills. God bless you all
