BBC MAY 20, 2007 PRAYER AS A BLESSING NUM. 6:22-27  PASTOR WINBORNE

THE PRIESTLY BLESSING

22 THEN THE LORD SAID TO MOSES,

23 “TELL AARON AND HIS SONS TO

BLESS THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL WITH THIS SPECIAL BLESSING:

24      ‘MAY THE LORD BLESS YOU

AND PROTECT YOU.

25      MAY THE LORD SMILE ON YOU

AND BE GRACIOUS TO YOU.

26      MAY THE LORD SHOW YOU HIS FAVOR

AND GIVE YOU HIS PEACE.’

27 WHENEVER AARON AND HIS SONS BLESS THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL IN MY NAME, I MYSELF WILL BLESS THEM.”

[1]

INTRO: PRAYER.. PRAYER DOES NOT CHANGE GOD, BUT CHANGES THOSE WHO PRAY.

PRAY…SATAN TREMBLE WHEN HE SEES THE WEAKEST SAINT ON THEIR KNEES

PRAY…ONE WHO DOES NOT PRAY IS A LIKE A TREE WITHOUT ROOTS.

PRAY…BECAUSE GOD ALWAYS ANSWERS US IN THE DEEP, NEVER IN THE SHALLOWS OF OUR SOUL.

PRAY…IT IS NOT SIMPLY GETTING THINGS FROM GOD, BUT TO MAKE THOSE THINGS HOLY WHICH ALREADY HAVE BEE RECEIVED FROM HIM.  IT IS NOT MERELY TO GET A BLESSING BUT ALSO TO GIVE A BLESSING.

EXPL: CENSUS - THE BOOK OF NUMBER RECORDS ISRAEL HISTORY IN THE WILDERNESS AND IS CHARACTERIZED BY THE TAKING OF A CENSUS. IT IS THE RECALLING OF THE HISTORICAL EVENTS OF ISRAEL FROM THE COMPLETION OF THE TABERNACLE TO THE WANDERING IN THE WILDERNESS TO THE ARRIVAL AT THE PLAINS OF MOAB AND THE EDGE OF CANAAN.

CONQUERED - THE BOOK OF NUMBERS RECORDS ISRAEL AS THE ARMY OF GOD; WHO WAS USED TO CONQUER CANAAN VIA HOLY MILITARY FORCE. YAHWEH THE DIVINE WARRIOR USED ISRAEL TO BRING THE WICKED NATIONS TO JUDGMENT.

CHASTENING - THE BOOK OF NUMBERS RECORDS GOD’S CHASTENING HAND UPON ISRAEL FOR THEIR DISBELIEF AND FAITHLESSNESS. WE LEARNED THAT IF WE ARE FAITHLESS WE FORFEIT OUR BLESSINGS; WHEN WE ARE DISGRUNTLED, DISCONTENT AND DISOBEDIENT THEN WE FIND OURSELVES WANDERING… BUT FOR THE FAITHFUL REMNANT WE DISCOVER THAT THE BLESSING OF GOD ARE UNSTOPPABLE.

CHARACTER – THE BOOK OF NUMBERS IS ABOUT CHARACTER; GOD TAKES US THROUGH THE WILDERNESS TO DEVELOP OUR BEING. WE’VE BEEN DELIVERED FROM THE EGYPT OF THE WORLD, BUT NOW FIND OURSELVES “WANDERING’ AND “WONDERING” AND “ BEING “WOOED” BACK INTO THE WORLD.  I AM SAVED BUT I AM WALKING BY SIGHT, AND GOD WANTS ME TO WALK BY FAITH. BECAUSE WHEN I LOOK AT WHAT IS BEYOND THE HORIZON I SEE THE BLESSINGS BUT AM AFRAID BECAUSE OF THE BURDENS; BURDEN OF PRESENT CHAOS AND FUTURE GIANTS. AND IF I AM NOT CAREFUL I WILL FAIL TO HONOR GOD; FAIL TO GROW BECAUSE OF GOD AND FAIL TO TRUST GOD.

NUMBER 5-6 DESCRIBES THE ORGANIZATION OF THE CAMP; THE CONSECRATION OF THE CAMP; THE UNCLEAN AND UNFAITHFUL WILL BE PUT OUT OF THE CAMP AND THOSE WHO DESIRE DEEPER COMMITMENT CAN TAKE A VOW, THE NAZARITE VOW.  THE CHAPTER CONCLUDES WITH A PRAYER OF BLESSINGS OVER THE PEOPLE.   BEFORE THE JOURNEY GOD COUNTS, GOD’S COUNSELS AND GOD COMMITS TO HIS PEOPLE, HIS BLESSING.

PROP: THERE IS A BIG CONNECTION BETWEEN PRAYING TO GOD AND THE BLESSINGS OF GOD.

INTER: WHAT CAN I LEARN FROM THIS PRAYER OF BLESSING THAT WILL ENCOURAGE ME THAT I MIGHT EMBRACE A POWERFUL PRAYER LIFE?

TS: AS WE LOOK AT THIS PRAYER OF BLESSING WE WILL GATHER A GREATER UNDERSTANDING OF THE POWER OF PRAYER.

MP I.  THERE IS THE COMMISSION FROM THE FATHER

MPII. THERE IS THE COMPONENTS OF HIS FAVOR

MPIII. THERE IS THE CONFIRMATION OF FUTURE FRUITFULNESS

 

THE PURPOSE OF PRAYER IS TO REVEAL THE GLORY OF GOD.

 

MP I.  THERE IS THE COMMISSION FROM THE FATHER

 

Numbers 6:22-23  22 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,  23 Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them,

CHAIN OF COMMAND – THE MAIN ACTION IN THE PRIESTLY BLESSING IS FOUND IN SPEAKING THE WORD; FOR THERE IS POWER IN THE WORD OF GOD. THE LORD SAID TO MOSES, TELL AARON AND HIS SONS TO BLESS THE PEOPLE. THERE IS A FIVE RUNG CHAIN OF COMMAND; YAHWEH, MOSES, AARON, HIS SON AND THE PEOPLE. HERE WE SEE PROGRESSION AND FLOW; THERE IS A COURSE OF ACTION FROM GREATER TO THE LESSER; FROM HEAVEN TO EARTH; FROM PROPHET TO PRIEST.

IMP: THERE IS MORE INVOLVED IN MY PRAYER LIFE THAN JUST MY PRAYERS.  I NEED TO HAVE SOMEONE PRAYING FOR ME.  IN THE FAMILY, IT’S NOT JUST THE CHILDREN’S PRAYERS BUT THE PRAYERS OF THE PARENTS OVER THE CHILDREN.

 JUST AS ISRAEL HAD THE HIGH PRIEST; IT’S GOOD FOR US TO HAVE A PASTOR. THIS IS BECAUSE THERE IS THE COMMISSION FROM GOD TO KEEP WATCH OVER THE FLOCK.

NUM. 11:17   THE EVENT BET. MOSES AND THE 70 ELDERS: AND I WILL COME DOWN AND TALK WITH YOU THERE AND I WILL TAKE OF THE SPIRIT WHICH IS UPON THEE, AND WILL PUT I UPON THEM; AND THEY SHALL BEAR THE BURDEN OF THE PEOPLE WITH THEE, THAT THOU BEAR IT NOT ALONE.

NUM 27:18 AT THE END OF MOSES LIFE. ..THE LORD SAID TO MOSES, TAKE JOSHUA, A MAN IN WHOM IS THE SPIRIT, AND LAY YOUR HAND UPON HIM.

2 KINGS 2: IN THE STORY OF ELIJAH AND ELISHA, BEFORE DEPARTING HE ASKED HIM IF HE HAD ANY PRAYER REQUEST. ELISHA  REQUEST WAS FOR A DOUBLE PORTION OF HIS SPIRIT. AND  LATER WHEN THE PROPHETS OF JERICHO SAW HIM, THEY SAID, THE SPIRIT OF ELIJAH IS RESTING ON ELISHA. AND THEY WENT TO MEET HIM AND BOWED TO THE GROUND BEFORE HIM.

MT. 8:8 SYS, THE CENTURION SAID, LORD I AM NOT WORTHY THE HAVE YOU COME UNDER MY ROOF, BUT ONLY SAY THE WORD, AND MY SERVANT WILL BE HEALED.

APP: COMES FROM THE LIFE OF THE PRIEST, THE LEVITES…., AARON AND HIS SONS WERE GIVEN THE SPECIAL STATUS OF HIGH PRIEST WHO SERVED IN THE HOLY PLACE AND THE HOLIES OF HOLIES. THE FUNCTION OF THE HIGH PRIEST …WAS TO REFLECT THE PRESENCE AND WORKINGS OF GOD AMONG THE PEOPLE.

ILL: PRAY YOUR PASTOR STAYS IN THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD.

ILL: RATTLESNAKES - THERE WAS A FARMER WHO HAD THREE SONS: JIM, JOHN, AND SAM. NO ONE IN THE FAMILY EVER ATTENDED CHURCH OR HAD TIME FOR GOD. THE PASTOR AND THE OTHERS IN THE CHURCH TRIED FOR YEARS TO INTEREST THE FAMILY IN THE THINGS OF GOD TO NO AVAIL. THEN ONE DAY SAM WAS BITTEN BY A RATTLESNAKE. THE DOCTOR WAS CALLED AND HE DID ALL HE COULD TO HELP SAM, BUT THE OUTLOOK FOR SAM'S RECOVERY WAS VERY DIM INDEED. SO THE PASTOR WAS CALLED AND APPRAISED OF THE SITUATION. THE PASTOR ARRIVED, AND BEGAN TO PRAY AS FOLLOWS:

   "O WISE AND RIGHTEOUS FATHER, WE THANK THEE THAT IN THINE WISDOM THOU DIDST SEND THIS RATTLESNAKE TO BITE SAM. HE HAS NEVER BEEN INSIDE THE CHURCH AND IT IS DOUBTFUL THAT HE HAS, IN ALL THIS TIME, EVER PRAYED OR EVEN ACKNOWLEDGED THINE EXISTENCE. NOW WE TRUST THAT THIS EXPERIENCE WILL BE A VALUABLE LESSON TO HIM AND WILL LEAD TO HIS GENUINE REPENTANCE.

   "AND NOW, O FATHER, WILT THOU SEND ANOTHER RATTLESNAKE TO BITE JIM, AND ANOTHER TO BITE JOHN, AND ANOTHER REALLY BIG ONE TO BITE THE OLD MAN. FOR YEARS WE HAVE DONE EVERYTHING WE KNOW TO GET THEM TO TURN TO THEE, BUT ALL IN VAIN. IT SEEMS, THEREFORE, THAT WHAT ALL OUR COMBINED EFFORTS COULD NOT DO, THIS RATTLESNAKE HAS DONE. WE THUS CONCLUDE THAT THE ONLY THING THAT WILL DO THIS FAMILY ANY REAL GOOD IS RATTLESNAKES; SO, LORD, SEND US BIGGER AND BETTER RATTLESNAKES. AMEN."

MPII. THERE ARE  THE COMPONENTS OF HIS FAVOR

NUMBERS 6:24-26  4 THE LORD BLESSES THEE, AND KEEP THEE:  25 THE LORD MAKE HIS FACE SHINE UPON THEE, AND BE GRACIOUS UNTO THEE:  26 THE LORD LIFT UP HIS COUNTENANCE UPON THEE, AND GIVE THEE PEACE.

GOD IS AT THE CENTER OF EVERY BLESSING  - THREE TIMES WE SEE THE LORD, THE, LORD, THE LORD….YAHWEH…THE COVENANT NAME FOR GOD; THE PROMISE KEEPING NAME OF GOD. ROOTED IN WHO GOD IS AND WHAT HE SAYS HE WILL DO. HE IS THE GOD OF ABRAHAM WHO CALLED HIM OUT OF UR OF THE CHALDEES AND SAID ABRAM I WILL BLESS THOSE THAT BLESS YOU AND CURSE THOSE THAT CURSE YOU. HE IS THE GOD OF ISAAC AND JACOB …AND REITERATED THE BLESSINGS GIVEN TO ABRAHAM…THE FATHER OF FAITH. FOR IN THE TEXT GOD IS AT THE CENTER OF THE BLESSING…THE ORIG. LANG SENTENCE STRUCTURE DOES NOT BEGIN WITH THE LORD; BUT CONSIDER..

THE HEB. TEXT …GOES LIKE THIS…IN WORD STRUCTURE…BLESS…LORD…KEEP;

LIGHT…LORD…GRACIOUS; LIFT….LORD…PEACE.  GOD IS THE CENTER OF OUR BLESSING, OUR LIVES AND OF OUR JOY.

GOD BUILDS ON HIS BLESSINGS – GOD BUILDS ON HIS BLESSINGS… FROM THE STRUCTURE IT BEGINS WITH (3) HEBREW WORDS OF POWER…GOD BLESS YOU;

REMINDS OF GEN. 1; IN THE BEGINNING!  THEN IN THE NEXT LINE THERE ARE ARE (5) HEB. WORDS…LORD MAKE FACE SHINE YOU…  THEN IT BUILDS TO (7) HEBREW WORDS… AND FINALLY IN V. 27 WE SEE EIGHT HEBREW WORDS. YES GOD IS THE CENTER OF OUR BLESSINGS AND HE SPECIALIZES IN BUILDING ON THE BLESSINGS….SO WE CAN BLESS HIM

TEXT… PSALM 1:1-3   PSALM 1:1 BLESSED IS THE MAN THAT WALKETH NOT IN THE COUNSEL OF THE UNGODLY, NOR STANDETH IN THE WAY OF SINNERS, NOR SITTETH IN THE SEAT OF THE SCORNFUL. {UNGODLY: OR, WICKED}  2 BUT HIS DELIGHT IS IN THE LAW OF THE LORD; AND IN HIS LAW DOTH HE MEDITATE DAY AND NIGHT.  3 AND HE SHALL BE LIKE A TREE PLANTED BY THE RIVERS OF WATER, THAT BRINGETH FORTH HIS FRUIT IN HIS SEASON; HIS LEAF ALSO SHALL NOT WITHER; AND WHATSOEVER HE DOETH SHALL PROSPER.

PSALM 103 – BLESS THE LORD OH MY SOUL AND ALL THAT IS WITHIN ME BLESS HIS HOLY NAME.  BLESS THE LORD OH MY SOUL AND FORGET NOT ALL HIS BENEFITS. WHO FORGIVES ALL MY INIQUITIES; WHO HEALS MY SOUL FROM DISEASE; WHO REDEEMS MY LIFE FROM DESTRUCTION; WHO CROWNS ME WITH LOVING KINDNESS AND TENDER MERCIES!!!!!!

MATTHEW 5:-12 THE BEATITUDES…

AND SEEING THE MULTITUDES, HE WENT UP INTO A MOUNTAIN: AND WHEN HE WAS SET, HIS DISCIPLES CAME UNTO HIM:  2 AND HE OPENED HIS MOUTH, AND TAUGHT THEM, SAYING, 

3 BLESSED ARE THE POOR IN SPIRIT: FOR THEIRS IS THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. 

4 BLESSED ARE THEY THAT MOURN: FOR THEY SHALL BE COMFORTED. 

5 BLESSED ARE THE MEEK: FOR THEY SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH. 

6 BLESSED ARE THEY WHICH DO HUNGER AND THIRST AFTER RIGHTEOUSNESS: FOR THEY SHALL BE FILLED. 

7 BLESSED ARE THE MERCIFUL: FOR THEY SHALL OBTAIN MERCY. 

8 BLESSED ARE THE PURE IN HEART: FOR THEY SHALL SEE GOD. 

9 BLESSED ARE THE PEACEMAKERS: FOR THEY SHALL BE CALLED THE CHILDREN OF GOD. 

10 BLESSED ARE THEY WHICH ARE PERSECUTED FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS' SAKE: FOR THEIRS IS THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. 

11 BLESSED ARE YE, WHEN MEN SHALL REVILE YOU, AND PERSECUTE YOU, AND SHALL SAY ALL MANNER OF EVIL AGAINST YOU FALSELY, FOR MY SAKE. {FALSELY: GR. LYING}  12 REJOICE, AND BE EXCEEDING GLAD: FOR GREAT IS YOUR REWARD IN HEAVEN:

EPHESIANS 1:1-10   PAUL, AN APOSTLE OF JESUS CHRIST BY THE WILL OF GOD, TO THE SAINTS WHICH ARE AT EPHESUS,…

3 BLESSED BE THE GOD AND FATHER OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, WHO HATH BLESSED US WITH ALL SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS IN HEAVENLY PLACES IN CHRIST:

4 ACCORDING AS HE HATH CHOSEN US IN HIM BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD, THAT WE SHOULD BE HOLY AND WITHOUT BLAME BEFORE HIM IN LOVE:

 5 HAVING PREDESTINATED US UNTO THE ADOPTION OF CHILDREN BY JESUS CHRIST TO HIMSELF, ACCORDING TO THE GOOD PLEASURE OF HIS WILL, 

6 TO THE PRAISE OF THE GLORY OF HIS GRACE, WHEREIN HE HATH MADE US ACCEPTED IN THE BELOVED. 

7 IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD, THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS, ACCORDING TO THE RICHES OF HIS GRACE; 

8 WHEREIN HE HATH ABOUNDED TOWARD US IN ALL WISDOM AND PRUDENCE; 

9 HAVING MADE KNOWN UNTO US THE MYSTERY OF HIS WILL, ACCORDING TO HIS GOOD PLEASURE WHICH HE HATH PURPOSED IN HIMSELF: 

10 THAT IN THE DISPENSATION OF THE FULLNESS OF TIMES HE MIGHT GATHER TOGETHER IN ONE ALL THINGS IN CHRIST, BOTH WHICH ARE IN HEAVEN, AND WHICH ARE ON EARTH; EVEN IN HIM:

AND THEN THERE IS THE SEVEN FOLD BLESSING OF REVELATION;

BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO READ THE BOOK

BLESSED ARE THE DEAD WHO DIE IN THE LORD

BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO WATCH AND KEEP THEIR GARMENTS

BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO ARE CALLED TO THE MARRIAGE SUPPER

BLESSED AND HOLY ARE THOSE WHO TAKE PART IN THE FIRST RESURRECTION

BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO KEEP THE SAYING OF THIS BOOK

BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO DO HIS COMMANDMENTS..RIGHT TO THE TREE.

APPLICATION: WE DON’T HAVE TO STEAL THE BLESSING; BUT JUST STEAL AWAY TO JESUS…DON’T TRY TO MANUFACTURE THE BLESSING LIKE JACOB; BUT REST ON THE PROMISES OF GOD. EXPECT THE PROMISES OF GOD; TRUST THE PROMISE OF GOD…EACH AND EVERY DAY.

ILL: IN THE MORNING PRAYER IS THE KEY THAT OPENS TO US THE TREASURES OF GOD'S MERCIES AND BLESSINGS; IN THE EVENING, IT IS THE KEY THAT SHUTS US UP UNDER HIS PROTECTION AND SAFEGUARD.

ILL: OVERFLOWING OF BLESSINGS -  GOD GIVES BLESSINGS TO US SO WE CAN GIVE GLORY TO HIM.

ILL:  WHILE ON A SHORT-TERM MISSIONS TRIP, PASTOR JACK HINTON WAS LEADING WORSHIP AT A LEPER COLONY ON THE ISLAND OF TOBAGO. A WOMAN WHO HAD BEEN FACING AWAY FROM THE PULPIT TURNED AROUND.

   "IT WAS THE MOST HIDEOUS FACE I HAD EVER SEEN," HINTON SAID. "THE WOMAN'S NOSE AND EARS WERE ENTIRELY GONE. SHE LIFTED A FINGERLESS HAND IN THE AIR AND ASKED, 'CAN WE SING COUNT YOUR MANY BLESSINGS?' "

   OVERCOME WITH EMOTION, HINTON LEFT THE SERVICE. HE WAS FOLLOWED BY A TEAM MEMBER WHO SAID, "I GUESS YOU'LL NEVER BE ABLE TO SING THAT SONG AGAIN."

   "YES I WILL," HE REPLIED, "BUT I'LL NEVER SING IT THE SAME WAY."

 

 

 

MPIII. THERE IS THE CONFIRMATION OF FUTURE FRUITFULNESS

NKJ – SO THEY SHALL PUT MY NAME ON THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL; SO WHEN THEY DESIGNATE ISRAEL AS MY PEOPLE…THEN I WILL BLESS THEM.

ILL: BEHAVIOR AND NAME -  SEVERAL CENTURIES BEFORE CHRIST, ALEXANDER THE GREAT CAME OUT OF MACEDONIA AND GREECE TO CONQUER THE MEDITERRANEAN WORLD. HE DIDN'T KNOW IT, BUT GOD WAS USING HIM TO PREPARE THE WAY FOR THE COMING OF THE MESSIAH--FOR IT WAS AS A RESULT OF ALEXANDER'S CONQUESTS THAT GREEK WAS ESTABLISHED AS THE COMMON LANGUAGE OF THE GRECIAN AND LATER EVEN ROMAN EMPIRE. ON ONE OF HIS CAMPAIGNS, ALEXANDER RECEIVED A MESSAGE THAT ONE OF HIS SOLDIERS HAD BEEN CONTINUALLY, AND SERIOUSLY, MISBEHAVING AND THEREBY SHEDDING A BAD LIGHT ON THE CHARACTER OF ALL THE GREEK TROOPS. AND WHAT MADE IT EVEN WORSE WAS THAT THIS SOLDIER'S NAME WAS ALSO ALEXANDER. WHEN THE COMMANDER LEARNED THIS, HE SENT WORD THAT HE WANTED TO TALK TO THE ERRANT SOLDIER IN PERSON. WHEN THE YOUNG MAN ARRIVED AT THE TENT OF ALEXANDER THE GREAT, THE COMMANDER ASKED HIM, "WHAT IS YOUR NAME?" THE REPLY CAME BACK, "ALEXANDER, SIR." THE COMMANDER LOOKED HIM STRAIGHT IN THE EYE AND SAID FORCEFULLY, "SOLDIER, EITHER CHANGE YOUR BEHAVIOR OR CHANGE YOUR NAME." THIS STORY HAS A LESSON FOR EACH OF US. WHEN WE CALL OURSELVES CHRISTIANS, WE ARE IDENTIFYING WITH JESUS CHRIST. WHEN WE WEAR A CROSS, OR ICHTHUS, OR PUT CHRISTIAN STICKERS ON OUR CARS, WE ARE BEING A WITNESS FOR HIM. WE ARE BEING IDENTIFIED WITH THE NAME OF CHRIST. IS YOUR BEHAVIOR COMPATIBLE WITH THAT NAME AND WITH THE SYMBOL THAT SHOWS THAT YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN?

SIGNET AND SECURITY – THE PRIEST PLACE, PUT AND APPOINT GOD’S NAME OVER THE PEOPLE; HE SECURE’ HIS NAME ON THEM….WHEN GOD PLACES HIS NAME OVER US…IT IS ROOTED IN HIS NAME, HIS RENOWN AND REPUTATION ALL BASED AND FOUNDED ON THE SUM OF HIS PROMISES.  THEY WILL PUT MY NAME ON ISRAEL; SIGNET AND SECURITY AS A MARK OF OWNERSHIP…

THE IMPLICATION – THE TOTAL SUM OF ALL HIS BLESSINGS ARE UPON THOSE WHO ARE HIS. IT IS ROOTED AND GROUNDED IN …OWNERSHIP, RELATIONSHIP AND FELLOWSHIP.  BECAUSE WE ARE GOD’S HE HAS A WAY OF PUTTING IT TO US….

THE PSALMIST SAID, SURELY GOODNESS AND MERCY SHALL FOLLOW ME ALL THE DAYS OF MY LIFE….SHALL PURSUE ME ALL THE DAYS OF MY LIFE AND I WILL DWELL IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD FOREVER.

PSALM 16:11 – THOU WILL SHOW ME THE PATH OF LIFE; IN THY PRESENCE IS FULLNESS OF JOY, AT THEY RIGHT HAND ARE PLEASURES FOR EVERMORE.

ROM 10:13 SAYS TO US THAT ANYONE WHO CALLS ON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED….

APP: IS TO CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD…FOR CALLING HIM, TALKING TO HIM IS AN ACT OF PRAYER; CALL HIM IN THE MORNING, NOON DAY AND AT MIDNIGHT…CALL UNTO HIM AND HE WILL ANSWER AND SHOW YOU GREAT AND MIGHTY THINGS…CALL HIM..

CALL HIM…BY NAME…

CALL HIM ALPHA AND OMEGA

BREAD OF LIFE…

THE DOOR

THE LIVING WATER…

OUR PROPHET AND KING.

REMEMBER WHEN YOU CALL HIM HE IS OUR HIGH PRIEST…AND SACRIFICE

SACRIFICE – JESUS IS OUR HIGH PRIEST AND HE IS THE ONE WHO GOES BEFORE AND PRAYS FOR US….JUST LIKE THE HIGH PRIEST WOULD MAKE SACRIFICE, POUR THE BLOOD AT THE BASE OF THE ALTAR AND THEN TAKE SOME OF THE BLOOD AND GO INTO THE HOLY OF HOLIES AND POUR THE BLOOD UPON THE MERCY SEAT AND THEN RETURN TO BLESS THE PEOPLE AS THE SHEKINAH GLORY OF GOD CAME DOWN;;…JESUS THE LAMB OF GOD WENT TO THE CROSS..

AND DIED…THAT WE MIGHT BE BLESSED…HE DIED…

HE DIED..

HE DIED.

BUT ROSE AGAIN….THAT THE GLORY OF GOD MIGHT BE REVEALED.

EVERYPLACE WHERE GOD PLACES HIS NAME HE WILL BLESS HIS PEOPLE…AND WHEN HE BLESSES WE CALL ON HIS NAME…

AND WHEN IT IS ALL SAID AND DONE…

WE SHALL SEE THE FACE OF GOD

WE SHALL ENJOY THE FELLOWSHIP  WITH GOD

WE SHALL REJOICE IN THE FINISHED WORK OF GOD

WE SHALL SEE HIS FACE…AND AT THE MARRIAGE FEAST OF THE LAMB..

HIS NAME WILL BE ON OUR FOREHEADS.

 

PRAYER ANTICIPATES THE FUTURE GLORY OF GOD.

PRAYERS GO UP AND BLESSINGS COME DOWN.
