WILL THE ACCEPTANCE OF THE GOSPEL BRING BACK JESUS CHRIST?
Update FreedomJournal: We still struggle to post the On-Line FreedomJournal.
Part 14: Seeing The Gospel Through Truth
Editors Note: My Beloved Brethren we are grateful for the love of Christ Jesus. Thus we send to all of humankind and the faithful readers of the FreedomJournal Peace and Love. As we explore “Will the Acceptance of the Gospel Bring Back Jesus Christ” and “The Power and Miracle of Prayer,” we testify that God the Magnificent and Infinite One has blessed us to behold the miraculous when we embrace the Gospels. All prejudice, degradation and Jim that flew with a Black and White Crow fell by the wayside in a ditch. However we lifted up our arms our hands to Heaven.
In the name of God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth
Peace be unto you. To the Church and believing Christians everywhere and those that believe in the Bible as the Supreme authority of God’s Laws. For the record and the sign post many people that confess to be Christians are now during these trying times looking to man, materialism and God knows what as additional authorities on how to get to Heaven. Glory be to God our Father and to His Son our Savior Christ Jesus blessed by the Holy Spirit.
Beloved we pray along with Hezekiah that the Lord will remember us as one of his beloved humble servants that walked in His Truth regardless of the opposition from secular majority people that know nothing of the weight of the minority/majority that rests rules and abides in Almighty God.
Thus as Hezekiah sees Truth we (FreedomJournal) also see Truth. Through the Truth of God you can see Christ because through Christ one can gain the favor of God the Father. Follow us now as we continue to relate the good king Hezekiah to our major topic of discussion.
II Kings 20: 3” I beseech thee, O Lord, remember now how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore.”
“Walk in truth” simply means to walk and talk according to God’s truth. The word perfect in scripture always means complete so “a perfect heart” means with all the heart. So to do something with all the heart means to do it with a perfect heart. If your heart is right you will do the right thing.
As we look to the Gospel and the New Testament we know that now our Christian journey is based on the heart not on works etc. So if we truly and sincerely have Christ Jesus in our hearts we will walk in Truth. Meanwhile Hezekiah offered a scriptural reason for expecting the favor of God; He had served God truly this is the essence of the whole Bible. Turn back to Chapter 18 for a confirmation of the thought just presented.
II Kings 18: 6 “For he clave to the Lord, and departed not from following him, but kept his commandments, which the Lord commanded Moses.” (Also see II Chronicles 17: 3 and Nehemiah 13: 22).
We now return to our primary scripture and pick up at the 5th verse.
II Kings 20: 5 “Turn again and tell Hezekiah the captain of my people, Thus saith the Lord, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on the third day thou shall group unto the house of the Lord.”
In most instances God has spoken through His Prophets. However in some instances He has spoken directly to His servants. (See Hebrews 1: 1). Hezekiah was the captain of his people because he was the king of Judah. Here we see that he would recover from his illness on the third day. (Also see I Samuel 9: 16). Now follow us to several cross references that speak to God’s hearing and answering prayer.
II Kings 19: 20 “Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent to Hezekiah, saying, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, That which thou hast prayed to me against Sennacherib king of Assyria I have heard.”
Psalms 39: 12 “Hear my prayer, O Lord, and give ear unto me cry; hold not thy peace at my tears: for I am a stranger with thee, and a sojourner, as all my fathers were.”
Psalms 65: 2 “O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.”
We will now move to the New Testament and how the acceptance of the Gospel impact on the return of Christ Jesus.
