Rom. 11:36 "Of Him and through Him and to Him are ALL THINGS, to whom be glory forever. Amen"
Journal Entry 57 – Season of Waiting
November 11th (Saturday) 2017
I love books (my favorite being the Bible). Though, I donft read much books other than the Bible, so those are just my own tastes.
Why did I start with then and then start to go on and on with this?
Genesis 2:22-24, And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
The wife-husband relationship is a watery reflection of the Church-Christ relationship. Why did God create marriage? So that we could understand the relationship we could have with Christ, and how without our physical limitations life will be so much better than marriage living with Christ in Heaven.
Ephesians 5:23-24, For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
Ephesians 5:25-27 - Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
Revelation 19:7-9 - Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready
Revelation 21:2 - And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
Isaiah 54:5 - For thy Maker [is] thine husband; the LORD of hosts [is] his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.
We are the bride unto Christ who is the husband. He takes care of us, like a husband takes care of his wife. He rules over us, not with a totalitarian rule, but with loving care. Because He cared enough to show us what care is. Because we are created with His care in His image, we understand care and long for it.
Genesis 1:27, So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
We fear what we donft understand, so God gave us marriage. So we can understand what a relationship with Him would be like, so we can understand it and not fear it.
Proverbs 14:29, He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding: but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly.
Ifm planning on having this type of style sometimes, just for variety sake. Makes these more interesting, as itfs essential to apply Godfs Word into every avenue of life, not just my motivation or my depression. I thank the Lord for inspiring me to type these long texts, despite the hours growing late and my patience becoming haste. Thank you, Jesus Christ, for always being with me and beside me and in me no matter what happens, and what has happened and what will happen. You are my only Lord and Saviour and it is by your name alone that one gets to Heaven. It is by youfre name alone that I am saved from the punishment of my sins, death, that you payed for on the cross at Calvary, your death and bodily resurrection 3 days later. Because you loved the world and want us to have a child like belief in your name, simple belief, no works, to be saved. After that, we are forever saved, if saved always saved. We donft have to gbe good enoughh to be saved because we can never gbe good enoughh to be saved. We, as sinful beings, cannot and will not ever reach your perfect standards by us alone. It is only by the blood atonement, the remission of sins that Christ washes away all the past, present and future sins of everyone who believes. Thank you, Lord, for saving me and for giving me this blessed assurance of salvation. I love you Lord and I canft wait to see You and all those who believe in your name alone, in Heaven. Amen.
Ephesians 2:8 - For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God:
Philippians 1:6 - Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform [it] until the day of Jesus Christ:
1 John 5:10-13 - He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar;
Ift 1:10 AM, Ifm hungry and all I can do is hope and pray that my will power will get stronger because of this relapse. Stay strong out their brothers and sisters. Amen.
