Home The Lord from heaven!

T. Austin Sparks - Messages.


The heralding of the coming of Christ by, John the Baptist was with the words ..  "Repent ye: for The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand." [Matthew 3:1.]

No wonder when seeking to introduce Christ to the World, John was compelled to say "Repent" because in actual fact, All of Heaven's authority, all of heaven's Purity, All of Heaven's Wonder had Arrived and was walking on Earth among men, whose inward and outward sinful condition was in awful violation of all that Heaven is! And yet, such is this great love of Christ that he said to Judas when he

 came in betrayal with the mob to take him,  "Friend, Wherefore art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus, and took Him" [Matthew 26:50.] Jesus addressed him as "Friend" which means...

                                JESUS WILL ALWAYS

                                 HOLD OUT FOR  YOU,

                                      AS YOUR.....


                                NO MATTER WHAT!

Go forward trusting in Him, for his loving friendship, that has no failing point, and that is the promise of The  Word, that says,  "A friend loveth at ALL times" [Proverbs 17:17.] now that is The Word of God, but if we did consider it as the written word of Solomon; Jesus said "a greater than Solomon is here"  [Matthew 12:42.]

How wonderful that our friend, is "The Lord from Heaven" as the following song portrays:-

O, what a wonderful, wonderful day
Day I will never forget
When I was wandering in darkness away
Jesus my Saviour I met

O, what a tender compassionate Friend
He met the need of my heart
Shadows dispelling with joy I am telling
He made all the darkness depart

Heaven came down and glory filled my soul
When at the cross my Saviour made me whole
My sins were washed away
And my night was turned to day
Heaven came down and glory filled my soul

Paul goes on in 1 Corinthians to say,  "As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the Heavenly, such are they also that are Heavenly, and as we have borne the Image of the earthy, we shall also bare the image of the Heavenly" [1 Corinthians 15:48-49.]

Christian, you are no longer "earthy" you are...



Live from Heaven, in Heaven's purpose, store up all your treasure in Heaven,  "For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was Rich yet for your sakes He became poor that ye through His poverty might be RICH" [2Corinthians 8:9.]

Brother and Sister, Heaven is a VERY RICH ESTABLISHMENT and YOUR position is right in the CENTER, because YOU are IN CHRIST and HE is ON THE THRONE!

O how weak and beggarly it is to be "EARTHY"; The Lord help us not to live any longer for a handful of dust!  "For our conversation is in Heaven from whence we look for The Saviour, The Lord Jesus Christ, who shall change our vile body, that it may be FASHIONED LIKE UNTO HIS GLORIOUS BODY, according to the working whereby He is able even to subdue all things UNTO HIMSELF". [Philippians 3:20-21.]

The Lord Bless with a real "BLAST" into all this great goodness of His Promise.

Jesus Loves You.

 God Bless.
