* THINKING IT OVER. *

Jeremiah 20:11 (KJV)
"
But the LORD is with me as a mighty terrible one...."



** Theme Song - "Think it Over."

>> Mighty Power with Us! <<

3-12-2017.

Jeremiah's name means Resurrection! ("Jah will Rise". Hebrew.) In the previous TIO, resurrection was the theme.

What power does Jeremiah's name and also the verse suggest? Resurrection Power!

Resurrection life and power simply means power we do not possess.  Power, other than ourself. Someone else's power. Whatever power raises a dead person back to life is a power in no way related to the dead person or the dead person now raised back to life. This stands good in the resurrection realm of the natural. But in the spiritual realm there is a different equation.

Jehovah was going to Arise to action and Jeremiah was called to partner with the Lord in that.

We (and every believer in Jesus) have been raised from being "dead in trespasses and sins" [Ephesians 2:1.] and have been "Baptised into Christ" [Romans 6:3] so that there is a new you in Christ, called the "new man" [Ephesians 4:24] which we are to "put on" and "put the old man off"!

Now this mighty resurrection power of the Lord Jesus Christ is resident in the believer and that is why Paul make such an enormous statement to the Ephesian Church, what every believer may know and experience -  "And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places". And then amazingly, Paul declares that every believer is raised up together in Christ and is sitting together with Him in heavenly places!! [ Ephesians 1:19-20]. Thus we are involved in a great partnership like Jeremiah as God Arises to do His mighty works.

Not like Jeremiah, this Resurrection power is not an external thing but an inward and close reality if we allow the "working of his mighty power".

Alas how miserable is our experience of this glorious and mighty power of our Lord Jesus Christ who loves us and gave himself for us!

The Lord have his way with us as illustrated to Jeremiah - the yieldingness to the potter and his skilfull hands, hearing his voice of power and enabling. 

The Lord BLESS. He does the VERY BEST!

The Lord bless your listening and watching with your heart for HIS GREAT LOVE FOR YOU!

We may not know much about the thrill of surfing the "tube" of a perfect wave but surfing the "tube of life" in the turbulent seas of today's world can be a hazardous experience to avoid being dumped and drowned in the swirling perilous waters of violence, narcissism and hurtful mockery.

In the dumping experiences on today's wild sea of life there exists a thrilling and Perfect wave "tube" that Christ has provided that has no surprising "dump of death" but rather an experience of great peace now and the exhilarating emergence at the end of His "tube" into Everlasting Life.

You may have (and what person hasn't) had some rough experiences in your 'tube of life' that has rolled in upon you and is hurtling you towards Eternity. And you may also often find yourself asking the Big Question ..... "What is Life all about? Really, what is the reality of it all?

The following (taken from a website promotion brochure) is a brief description of this website contents, which contains some of the many sided answers to life's Big Questions which are wonderfully provided by the great love of God and found in the Bible.

The site is arrayed in a 'static' and not a 'blog' format so that a lot of the site contents are in plain view, sectioned into menus.

There is no claim to fame or web site dazzle. The presentation is bright and enthusiastic about faith, hope and the love of God in Christ.
There are approximately 500 illustrated articles covering many topics of the Christian life, along with much for those who are seeking answers, those who are broken and troubled, those who are are anxious about life and death. Irrefutable realities for the atheist, skeptic, and agnostic; an answer to Richard Dawkins book "The God Delusion" called "The God delusion ...Delusion"
Links are provided to other websites of interest such as the astounding evidences of "intelligent design" in creation found at "Creation Research.net" website.
One very special menu is that of "Pilgrim's Progress" which has been broken up into 30 segments for ease of reading. These articles practically fill the "Most Popular" list. The journey of Pilgrim from the "City of destruction" to the "Celestial city" is nothing short of thrilling. Years ago when the world was more sensible about spiritual things Pilgrim's Progress was part of the school curriculum because of the sheer beautiful principles to build any nation upon. The good and unsavoury characters met along Pilgrim's way illustrate great lessons for humanity: Such characters as - Obstinate, Pliable, Evangelist, Mr. Worldly Wiseman, Good-will, Formalist and Hypocrisy, Faithful, Mr. Talkative, Lord Hate-good, Hopeful, and Giant despair. There are many others with much to guard one's life against to avoid serious pitfalls. The Pilgrim's Progress series is stacked with original wonderfully descriptive sketches providing extra enjoyment in following the journey.
The various "Menus" provide at a glance the site content in those articles listed under that menu heading; for example - "Tasty Menu for lost Sheep" is for those who don't know the way through life and death to eternity. 'Promise for You" is for those who are looking for any of the countless promises in the Word of God. The Menu "Emergency 000 Help when" is a list of noted encouragements and promise verses provided in the "Gideons Bible" found in Hospitals, Motels, Prisons, Schools and many other places. There is much more. Investigate the site and be lifted up! God bless.

"There is lifting up" [Job 22:29.]

Hymn by:

James Rowe. 1866 - 1933.

Love Lifted Me.

1. I was sinking deep in sin,
Far from the peaceful shore,
Very deeply stained within,
Sinking to rise no more;
But the Master of the sea
Heard my despairing cry,
From the waters lifted me,
Now safe am I.

Love lifted me!
Love lifted me!
When nothing else could help,
Love lifted me.

2. All my heart to Him I give,
Ever to Him I’ll cling,
In His blessed presence live,
Ever His praises sing.
Love so mighty and so true
Merits my soul’s best songs;
Faithful, loving service, too,
To Him belongs.

Love lifted me!
Love lifted me!
When nothing else could help,
Love lifted me.

"Love lifted me." (Gaither singers)
