“Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.”
1 Peter 3:22
“18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, [even] unto the end of the world. Amen.”
Brothers and Sisters what an Awesome Privilege it is when Jesus, The Christ, The Lord and King asks you to do something! Let me give you a definition of what it means to sit on the Right Hand, which some may not understand this position.
Right Hand: chiefly relied on; an indispensable person; a place of honor
Jesus, is Relied Upon to Save The World, that is to all of those who Confess Jesus as Lord and Savior. The Father has put upon His Only Son All Authority finding Him Indispensable to The Father’s Work. The Father set Jesus on His Right Hand giving Jesus All Honor for His Obedience To The Father’s Desire to Save The World.
“15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”
This Task that The Father gave to Jesus to do seems simple, Tell The World That Through You, They Will Be Saved! It would seem that Jesus’ Mission to Save The World would have very little consequence. Stop and think about it, The Father told His People, that is; The Hebrews, I AM is Coming to Save You!
“13 And he said, Hear ye now, O house of David; [Is it] a small thing for you to weary men, but will ye weary my God also? 14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”
”6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of [his] government and peace [there shall be] no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this. 8 The Lord sent a word into Jacob, and it hath lighted upon Israel.”
“But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”
Jesus had been sent to the House Of Israel to Save Them. But they did not Accept Jesus as The Messiah, nor do the Jews today accept Jesus as The Messiah. They are looking for a Physical King that will come and rule the World as they see it, not as The Father see’s it.
Jesus was sent to Do The Fathers Will, that is, to Do The Work Of Father.
“I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world:
again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.”
“35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. 36 But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not. 37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. 38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. 39 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. 40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.”
To Do The Work of Jesus, you must not only Accept Jesus as your Savior, but Must Also Accept Jesus As Lord. Most of you will say, “…I accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior…”, but my question to you is… Did You! In order to Make Jesus Lord of Your Life then you Must Surrender Your Will, Surrender Your Desires, Surrender Completely. Your Relationship Must be as The Father and Jesus Are One!
“20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, [art] in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: 23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.”
“25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me. 26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: 28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any [man] pluck them out of my hand. 29 My Father, which gave [them] me, is greater than all; and no [man] is able to pluck [them] out of my Father’s hand. 30 I and [my] Father are one.”
Praise Jesus for His Obedience To The Father!!! Jesus gave His Life Willingly that We Might Be Saved through His Work on The Cross. We need to understand this, Jesus Gave His Life Willingly… At any point in time when Jesus was here He could have Changed The Course that The Father Desired. In order for The Scriptures to be fulfilled Jesus had to Give Up and Trust The Father. We must do the same in Jesus… Give Up!
“And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou [wilt].”
“15 If ye love me, keep my commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17 [Even] the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. 19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. 20 At that day ye shall know that I [am] in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. 21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. 22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world? 23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. 24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.”
Those who know me, I know at times they scratch their heads and wonder why I do or say things that seem to them, in their eyes, presenting a negative outcome. Most of God’s People and their Perspective of God’s Will are lacking in Understanding, at best. It is verily or not even taught any more what it means to Do Gods Will, what it means to become a Living Sacrifice. Most do not Understand The Depth of The Fathers Love and the Distance He will go to give people a chance to Live For God, The Father, Through Jesus His Son.
If Jesus says Go and Do then who am I to Not Go or Do? The Christ, That is Jesus, has asked me to Go and Do something on His Behalf, For The Fathers Sake. I should be Ecstatic at the Opportunity, for being Asked to Represent God! It does not matter if I Understand or not, but it does matter that I am Obedient Regardless The Outcome!!
When Jesus was asking that the Cup be taken away, Jesus did not want to go through what He was about to. Furthermore, Jesus Did Not Know The Full Path, What He was going to have to go through fully.
“45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour. 46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”
Many Do Not Understand, what took place from the Sixth Hour To The Ninth Hour. At this point and time Jesus took the Sins Of The World upon Himself as a Sacrifice and it was at this point in time that The Father turned away from His Son, leaving Him entirely Alone. Jesus had Never, Never, Never been without The Father. There was Never, Never, Never A Separation Between Them… but now, there was. It left Jesus in a state that He had never felt, that is, The complete Absence Of God!
Brothers and Sister it is past time to Stand Up and be Accounted For. If you Confess that Jesus is Lord Of Your Life, then you must Live Out Your Life Doing His Will and Not Your Own. That means you Do and Say whatever He tells you to, not worrying about Who Likes It or Who Does Not!
It is not fun, it is not easy and you will become an outcast, being hated by many!!! Jesus has asked me to do so many things in my life and most of it has reflected the opposite of what the World would say and do. But see, I Do Not Live For The World, but For Jesus!!! Brothers and Sisters you need to know that when Jesus tells me to Go and Do that there are times that I struggle with my flesh. There are times that I Must make decisions to be Obedient even though I may know the possible outcome. I have lost Family, Friends, Associates, Jobs and Money for being Obedient, but I would do it again just as I did the first time. The Cost of being Obedient to Jesus outweighs any outcome!
“24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any [man] will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. 26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?”
“27 What I tell you in darkness, [that] speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, [that] preach ye upon the housetops. 28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. 30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.”
To the Worlds Understanding, I have lost a lot, but to Jesus I have Established a Relationship With The God Of All Creation in being Obedient To Him. It is Our Choice whether to make Jesus Lord or Not, He will not force you, but you will answer for it at the Great White Throne!
I Choose To Do Jesus’ Will to the best of my understanding and even when I have No Understanding. If I loose my Life for Jesus, then, in Jesus I have found Eternal Life.
There are some of you who are following after The Flesh, after The Worldly Ideas. Some of you are Walking In Dis-Obedience. You know what you are to do, but you would rather have The Flesh Be Your God, instead of Jesus being Lord Of Your Life. Some of you have Broken Covenants with Jesus, with other Brothers and Sisters and need to Repent and Rebuild. There are some of you who have put Husbands, Wives, Children, Jobs and Money above God, making them Your God…Repent!!!
The King Has Asked
Who Is Your God?
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savor!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
