>> 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!


Psalm 92:5 (KJV)
"O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep."

>> The following is number 40 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. 

 Ezra 4:1 (KJV)
“Now when the adversaries of Judah and Benjamin heard that the children of the captivity builded the temple unto the LORD God of Israel;”

|| More on 'Advarseries'. ||

There is much in the 69th psalm that confirms its precious messianic value. One point is the following verse - "They that sit in the gate speak against me; and I was the song of the drunkards." [Psalm 69:12]

Now that Christ is risen from the dead having accomplished eternal redemption for mankind from sin and eternal death (the second death). [Revelation 21:8.] It stands true in wonderful contrast to the position Jesus suffered by the authority at the gates of Jerusalem which were in operation by the superior power of the "gates of hell". Now Jesus' words stand in utter triumph - "And I say also unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." [Matthew 16:18.] Jesus now counsels the gates of hell, claiming complete control over every sinner and sinful nation and has cast the devil out of the claims court of ownership to damnation of the whole human race. Once the authority of man at the 'gates' under the domination of  'hell' condemned Christ to the cross but now these "gates of hell" are robbed of sustaining power against the Church THAT is HIS and HE IS building! Praise the Lord dear Christian your adversary cannot snuff you out! He is cast out, and you are the eternal possession of the Lord. He is able to "turn ALL the tables" on everything the adversary may have spoiled or threatens to. "David recovered ALL" [1 Samuel 30:8.] and so such grace is available for every lowly heart that looks to him for his abundant rich mercy toward a needy trembling heart.

|| Wonderful Triumph of David. ||

Notice that after David expresses all that he suffered, he in the end of Psalm 69 says -

"I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.
This also shall please the LORD better than an ox or bullock that hath horns and hoofs.
The humble shall see this, and be glad: and your heart shall live that seek God.
For the LORD heareth the poor, and despiseth not his prisoners.
Let the heaven and earth praise him, the seas, and everything that moveth therein.
For God will save Zion, and will build the cities of Judah: that they may dwell there, and have it in possession.
The seed also of his servants shall inherit it: and they that love his name shall dwell therein." [Psalm 69:30-36.]

How revealing is this in its messianic truth of Christ and the triumphant joy described by Paul -   

"Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. [Hebrews 12:2.]

Whatever the 'adversary' dull rounds of hell you may be up against, look up, and triumph in praise and thanksgiving dear Christian. You dwell in the highest place with the Lord. You are his and all is permanently under his feet.

TIO Nutshell Thought.

If you are not aware that you have an adversary, it is because you have become numb to the devouring!

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.
