>> The Heresy of Niceness.

This is a must see. The danger of being careful about Christian Image.

Click here for the video clip of Rebecca Pippert speaking on the Subject: "The Heresy of Niceness."

Ananias and Sapphira secretly indulged in carefulness about their Christian 'image'.

They died in the presence of the transparent power of the Lord (because of their lie), in the midst of his resurrection empowered Church. [Acts 5:1-10.]

Because of Spirit dryness in the Church today, all Image judgment if not expedited here, will not fail the spot light at the finish line, and the process of rewards accounting on that day. No fake enters there.

Every believer that has a fierce struggle with sin and acknowledges such before the Lord in a genuine fight to win through with him, without the projection of false image will be perfected and "overcome at the last" [Genesis 49:19.] Praise the Lord!

* THINKING IT OVER. *

>> The following is number 48 in this series, and all has sprung out of the restoration of the Temple from the book of Ezra. In particular all up to this stage has stemmed from the laying of the foundation in Ezra chapter 3 and now the war begins against all that may be built upon this foundation to contain the Glory of God.

 Philippians 2:7 (KJV)
"But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:"

>> To Build the House of the Lord 48. <<

As mentioned in the last TIO, there is an amazing revelation in the phrase "took upon him the form of a servant". The meaning of the word "servant" is 'slave'. That is the reason why Jesus said in another place -

"Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls." [Matthew 11:29.]

|| The All Time Greatest Undercover Boss. ||

Jesus is indeed the all time greatest "Undercover Boss"!

Ponder the wonder of John 13.

"Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;
He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.

After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded." [John 13:3-5.]

 The Father had given all things into the hands of the Lord, and then the greatest wonder unfolded - Jesus began to serve up to his disciples the unsearchable riches of his eternal kingdom and declared to Peter and to all, that they have a part with him in his great work of redemption and the washing away of their sins. 

We simply come to Jesus and submit as Peter did to be washed and we have a part with him in great riches purchased at his expense of the cross. Is not that the most exciting eternal prospects you could ever imagine? Now that is a most wonderful servant. It is like David saying - "The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want" [Psalm 23:1.] In Eternity you will never 'want' anything because you will have "all things"! [1 Corinthians 3:22.]

|| Have you grasped the Wonder of this Part with Him? ||

Jesus made a very simple, and you would tend to think a very base line statement that - "the Gospel is preached to the poor" [Matthew 11:5.] but that is wealth untold! Because the Gospel is great tidings of the greatest 'undercover boss' that appeared on the world employment platform as a 'servant' of men and in a sweeping reform of his subjects promotes all sincere ones to the highest levels of management power and glory! Paul said - "We shall judge Angels". [1 Corinthians 6:3.]

The house of the Lord in reality, and not just in name, is a place where all who would build with him are truly submitted to the Lord and are true servants (slaves) to the saints, washing their feet and promoting them in having a 'part' with him in his work and HIS glory in HIS House.

"The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein." [Psalm 111:2.]

Jesus is all of Mankind's great "Undercover Boss" with grace and power to promote all those that become his possession to a share with him in his throne of management and glory.

Look, listen and enjoy the much loved Gospel singer of Chicago - Jessy Dixon singing - "Gone". This song is about the resurrection of Christ and his glorious triumph over the grave.

Jessy went home to be with the Lord in 2011 at the age of 73.

Notice the expressions on the faces, and the tears, at the thrill of this Glorious truth of the song.

(Monday 28th. October 2013.)

Isaiah 32:2 (KJV) 
"And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land."

THINKING IT OVER:

* The Shadow of a Great Rock. *

Are you proving that Christ wonderfully is the "Shadow of a great rock in a weary land [Isaiah 32:2.] Are you weary? Call upon the Lord. It could be, that it is your own fault that you are weary. It makes no difference to Jesus how weary or how you have become weary, he is a GREAT ROCK. The shadow is there for you. Christ has cast a shadow of forgiveness, refreshment and comfort across the whole world. Christ has come and the shadow is cast, never to be taken away. This Rock is faultless and that's why in the following text we are promised "his work is perfect".

He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he." [Deuteronomy 32:4.]

Many people live their whole life with something that has a stranglehold around their neck, and never reach this wonderful great rock with the blessed shadow of restoration, refreshment and peace.

* ¶ Jesus (this rock) is faultless, he has perfect peace and perfect love, and you can never come out a loser if you bring everything under the shadow of this great rock! There is room under this restoring shadow for the most nasty problem. A Shadow from the most destructive blast of heat in this fireball world. We are talking about Jesus here! We are not talking about a mere man, we are talking about an all understanding, gracious and loving GOD Man. Paul declares to a weary Church trying to be complete in self striving and says - "...... You are complete in Him" [Colossians 2:10.] Jesus has not got half a package for the weary traveller, but a full blessed deal will be unfolded to you under the shadow of this GREAT ROCK. Right at this very crucial time of Israel about to embark on a serious venture of life or death to win the prize of God's great blessing in the Promised Land, Moses encourages them in this rock so faultless and solid that it cannot fail them. A rock of great safety and power, and so enduring that it is ETERNAL and Paul declares that this ALL TIME ROCK (that followed them) IS CHRIST. - "And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ." [1 Corinthians 10:4.] You cannot possibly reach the shores of eternity safely without coming via the life giving shadow of Jesus Christ, this great rock of Salvation. [Psalm 62:2.]

God Bless.
