LUKE 12:27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
Brothers, just as the previous message taught us that we have entered into his rest. We also are promised here that we are not to worry about what we shall eat or what we shall wear. For God the creator and our heavenly Father will provide for us our needs. Wow! Amen!
That statement alone should give us peace and rest in our Lord our God.
But, this is only one of hundreds of promises that our Lord has made to each of us who are his born again children.
The bible tells us that we have been grafted into the vine. That those of us who were not Jewish by birth as Jesus and his disciples were, have been grafted into the very lineage of Jesus.
The bible also tells us that we are now God's children and joint heirs with Jesus our Lord and Savour.
Brothers, this also should give you much peace and rest in our God and our Lord Jesus. Wow!
Now follow alone with me as we are taught by the Holy Spirit what God would have us see about the verses below in Hebrews Chapter 9:10-13.
10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
Remember brothers that what Jesus said unto Israel and Juda he says to us. Because we have been grafted into His lineage. God does not see us any differently than those Jews who have been born again like we ourselves have. Now all people including the Jewish people must know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. All people on earth are held to this standard and are under this new covenant that God made with us.
11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.
God himself has told us here that we are not to teach that every man is his brother. That time passed when Jesus came and died for our sins. Now our brothers are only those who know Jesus as the only begotten and living Son of God.
He goes on to say here that because we know the Lord he knows each of us. Brothers, God knows you, and he considers you his child. Wow!
12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.
Here the Lord tells us that he shows us mercy even when we act in an unrighteousness way. He says that our sins and our iniquities he will not remember.
Brothers, let me remind you that this forgiveness is not a license to sin. No, on the contrary we are to be diligent in our confession of our sins that we commit after we are saved. His Holy Word tells us that he is faithful to forgive us our sins. But, we must confess and ask for that forgiveness.
The Holy Spirit will show you those things which you should confess each day and throughout the day. Don't wait until the end of the day brothers, but rather confess that sin when you are shown the sin.
13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
Brothers, we have a new covenant with God. The original covenant has passed away. We are forgiven by the cleansing blood of Jesus Christ. Walk in that knowledge each and every day. Confess your trespass's and sins so that you may have fellowship with God each and every day. Continue in the peace of that fellowship until Jesus' very soon appearing.
Brothers, go to Hebrew Chapter 9 and read the entire chapter now that you have been told this mighty promise from God the Father.
God bless you my brothers.
