Scepter Is Born

Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom. Psalm 45:6

Scepter– royal or imperial power or authority , sovereignty

Remember all power and authority has been given to Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18) He is the Scepter, this is a prophecy of the coming of our King.

Christmas is a time to remember the birth of our Scepter, Jesus Christ. The Son of the Living God delivered to us to establish Gods kingdom that will last forever. There will be no end to the reign of Jesus Christ. His throne has been established on that day in the manger.

Jesus is the King of Kings and Lord and Lords (Revelation 19:16) Its time to rejoice and give thanks for your new born King. The King that has overcome the world, The King that was willing to lay down his life for us.

Is Jesus the King of your Kingdom? Have you accepted Christ as your Lord and Savior? This Christmas season get the gift of life, the gift that is eternal and will never fade away. By the power of the Blood of Christ, we are victorious! The throne of God has been established in Jesus Name Amen!

To Live Is Christ

For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.  Philippians 1:21

What a bold proclamation by Paul, as Christians we often feel abused and rejected from the world. But the truth is we are in a win/win situation. Thanks to our Lord Jesus who gave us grace thru his sacrifice on the cross, we will live forever and we can be empowered thru the Holy Spirit.

As Paul said in 1 Corinthians 1:18 “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing” When you understand who Jesus truly is and what he truly did for us. Then you can live with the peace and confidence of To Live is Christ and To Die is Gain

I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far; but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body. Philippians 1:23-24

As we read John 14 and Revelations we know Heaven is going to be awesome, however our work here is not done yet. God has sent us here for a purpose and your mission is not completed until God says it is.

Don’t keep avoiding the present and assume for the future. Remember as Jesus taught us in Matthew 20, everyone’s reward will be based on the work you have performed. God has blessed you with gifts and talents, he expects you to use them for his glory.

Convinced of this, I know that I will remain, and I will continue with all of you for your progress and joy in the faith, so that through my being with you again your boasting in Christ Jesus will abound on account of me. Philippians 1:25-26

Paul realizes this, God has giving him a mission and he still had a lot of work to do. Paul boldness and deep insight of Jesus. He received lots of opposition also including persecution, however Paul knew whichever way it was going to go we are victorious thru our Lord Jesus Amen

Chains For Christ

Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me has actually served to advance the gospel. As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ. Philippians 1:12-13

Paul endured a lot during his ministry, he was often beaten and imprisoned. But thru his suffering people could see that Paul was sincere with his doctrine about Jesus and wasn’t using it for his own gain. There are still many today who accuse Paul and others, for making up Christianity for there own personal agendas.

But Paul never profited by the world, nor did the other disciples, from spreading Christianity. In fact almost all of the early disciples of Jesus were executed eventually

The former preach Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing that they can stir up trouble for me while I am in chains. But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice. Yes, and I will continue to rejoice, Philippians 1:17

I once heard a pastor say “If Christians attacked Satan as much as they attack other Christians, Satan would be in trouble”. This is so true, Christians spend most of there time and energy debating and criticizing each other over Biblical interpretation differences.

As Paul says here “What does it really matter?” Our main goal should be teaching people about Jesus and his grace he delivered us on the cross. When Jesus gets removed as the Godhead of the Church, that’s when we need to be concerned.

for I know that through your prayers and God’s provision of the Spirit of Jesus Christ what has happened to me will turn out for my deliverance. Philippians 1:19

Your trials and suffering, just like Paul, will be used by God to exalt Jesus and show the world we can do all things thru Christ who gives us strength. Don’t fear opposition, embrace it, for God will use you to give him Glory. He will never leave you or forsake you in Jesus Name Amen
