Be it unto me according to thy word

Sunday,September 26th, 2021

(Isaiah 53:10) What our Lord has done is so great that our thoughts cannot grasp it. Man had to fall, but God would not leave him in that state. God has always manifested His perfect Will, the goal He sought to achieve for man.

"That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon and our hands have touched, concerning the word of life," (1 John 1:1) The Word that God had to speak, It could at one time take the form of a man: Jesus Christ. "For in him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. (Colossians 2:9) It is Jesus who draws to Himself. When He called the disciples, there was no resistance. "We have found Him of whom Moses wrote in the law and the prophets spoke, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph." (John 1:45) God did this for the time of Philip. But today when God pours out His Word, in the heart of a son of God, there is no hesitation because you have been predestined for this time. Do we see as the scriptures want us to see?

Why did Jesus have to say that "among those born of women there has not appeared one greater than John the Baptist"? (Matthew 11:11)? The Scriptures had announced that there was a messenger who was to come to announce the coming of the Lord. The angel Gabriel came to the house of a priest, Zechariah.

Luke 1:5-17

No man can keep the Word except that God has prepared this man. It is the Word of the Lord, we owe Him respect. It is in the difficult moments when we think it is impossible that He always intervenes to prove to you that He is the Almighty. He did it with Abraham, He can do it in our time too. If God did it once, He can do it again.

There were many priests in those days, but the angel Gabriel came to Zechariah at the right time. If Zechariah and Elizabeth were pleasing to God, it was because God was already preparing them. The election can never fail because you are elected to do this. You are chosen to be the Bride. This bride will be "without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but holy and without blemish." (Ephesians 5:27) And she will be. "But in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. (Romans 8:37) Victory we possess. Don't rely on your strength, you already have failure. Trust in God.

Zechariah had heard that the angel of God might appear, but that day the angel came to him, he saw it. It is the same with you my brother, my sister, you have heard but you will also see. The God you serve exists because His angel is standing there. When you are on your knees, there is a moment when the thoughts come because the subconscious mind comes into action with everything you have seen or heard during the day. That's why, stop listening to junk. Listen to hymns. We must seek to have our Lord glorified. There is a difference between what the mouth says and what the heart says. When you get on your knees, the first few moments are a blur. At that moment, you repent, ask Him for forgiveness and then you praise Him, show Him what He is to you. And only then do you tell Him your problem. When you are like that and you are sincere, God listens to you. God wants us to have the truth in our hearts, that you are sincere. There is no point in being hypocritical. God is a God of love. He wants to love and be loved.

It was not Zechariah who gave the name but God who gave the name John. The angels know the Scriptures. When they are sent, they come to announce only what God had to say. The angel took the Scriptures to give the content of John's ministry. He didn't say the whole verse, but he just stopped at the part that was relevant to John. John's birth was related to what the Lord was going to do. The same angel who came to Zechariah also came to Mary.

Luke 1:26-36

When Mary was growing up, she may have found herself a little different from the others. When God has prepared you for a specific task, he guards you carefully. He doesn't allow you to be like everyone else. When God has to do something with you, God's hand is on you from birth. God chose you from before the foundation of the world. The eaglet was always an eaglet, but they put him with the chicks. He ate the same thing but it didn't pass. He did not want to be different, but his constitution was different. Each seed must produce according to its species. You can put yourself in a condition, but it is not in your interior. Until the moment when the Word comes. Those who have been called by God, they cannot do what they want because they have been consecrated by God, predestined.

When Nicodemus came to Jesus to praise Him, Jesus said nothing. He just talked about the Scriptures, He dropped a bomb. God's servant does not chase praise. "If I still pleased men, I would not be a servant of Christ." (Galatians 1:10) When the Word fools, I say "amen" because the Word matches what is in me.

Mary did not realize that the Lord was with her. She was living like everyone else but she did not know that the eyes of the Lord were upon her. When the Word enters you, you no longer have a taste for the world. You seek to take the name of Jesus Christ through baptism. You have to make a decision because it is your soul, your destination. You have been hearing the Word for years but you are still murmuring. If the Word doesn't change you, what will? "How long will you stumble on both sides?" (1 Kings 18:21)

The angel had given the name John but here God also gives the name Jesus See the connection between the two. Not just any virgin was chosen but a virgin betrothed to a son of David. God remembered David. "David will never lack a successor sitting on the throne of the house of Israel" (Jeremiah 33:17).

John was considered the greatest disciple because look at the connection between Jesus and him. John's birth was related to Jesus. John preached the Word, he was not afraid of words. "You offspring of vipers, who taught you to flee from the wrath to come? (Matthew 3:7) God had given him authority. "By what authority do you do these things, and who gave you the authority to do them? Jesus answered them, "I will ask you a question also; answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things." (Mark 11:28-29) John knew where he stood. If God has chosen you, you must know your position. "I did not know him, but he who sent me to baptize with water said to me, "The one on whom you will see the Spirit come down and stay is the one who baptizes with the Holy Spirit. (John 1:33) You must have the certainty of the One who sent you. Stop playing with your life. You have received salvation, never sell your birthright.

"I baptize with water, but among you there is one whom you do not know, who is coming after me; I am not worthy to untie his shoe strap." (John 1: 26-27) John the Baptist was sure and certain of the One who sent him and the content of his ministry. "He must increase, and I must decrease. (John 3:30) John was able to stand before the whole world and say, "Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world." (John 1:29) He must have been certain of what he was announcing. When Samuel came to the house of Jesse, Samuel made a mistake. God took him back to anoint David. But John, at that time, could not be wrong. That is why Philip was able to say to Nathanael: "We have found him of whom Moses wrote in the law and of whom the prophets spoke, Jesus of Nazareth, son of Joseph. (John 1:45) For Philip had received for his time. And you, my brother, have you received for your time? The time is advanced, we want to go home. If I still take pleasure in this world, there is something wrong. I have a home. "I will prepare a place for you." (John 14:2) You, my brother, my sister, do you have a place? Who has gone to prepare a place for you? You must be sure and certain that you have a place because you know where you are going, you cannot go astray. It is useless to torment yourself, to murmur because when He says, I do. There is a bond between us. "My sheep hear my voice; I know them, and they follow me. (John 10: 27) The time has come, let everyone make their choice!

You can't mix light with darkness. For that, the choice must be made. God has always watched over those who are His. When you are of God, you cannot fight the Word. When you choose the world, you are already defeated because the one you chose as your master has been defeated. But Jesus says to you, "You have everything fully in him, who is the head of all dominion and authority." (Colossians 2:10) Don't waste your time, you must make your choice. When Elijah came before the people. Elijah was facing 400 prophets. Elijah was direct. Today we want to be diplomatic but Jesus was not diplomatic, He spoke directly.

Matthew 15:1-6

Jesus is not a diplomat but he is upright. God wants us to be righteous. What you want done to you, do also to others. The interpretation of the Scriptures is not good. This is what we are experiencing today. We interpret a lot, we even go as far as preaching on the signs of the Zodiac.

Jeremiah 10:1-3 / 1 Timothy 4:1

The signs of the Zodiac are in the sky. Stop with the doctrines where there are no doctrines. The doctrine on the signs of the Zodiac is a doctrine of demons.

Matthew 15:6-14

When Isaiah spoke, he had already seen them. Where the Lord Jesus Christ is not welcome, God is not welcome either. The Pharisees drew the crowd to them. They came carnally but Jesus spoke to them spiritually. Demons are not coaxed, but cast out. Satan is a demon and his job is to destroy. We have the power to cast them out. When a man is anointed with an evil spirit, those who listen to him are under the control of the same spirit. We want to see.

We are a people that God has chosen Himself. John stood with certainty "Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world." (John 1:29) John trembled when he saw Jesus. Loving this Jesus is health for the body. I rest in Jesus. "Struggles without, fears within." (2 Corinthians 7:5) When you have Jesus, all things are possible. Jesus takes care of your tomorrow in every detail. When all else fails you, Jesus will be there. Even when you are rotten, Jesus will come. No matter what people may think, one day you will go home.

"I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even if he is dead" (John 11:25) Jesus is present. No one wanted to go near Lazarus because he already smelled bad. "Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God? (John 11:40) "Take away the stone." Take away unbelief, take away the stone! When you remove unbelief, you will see that God does the impossible. "Lazarus, come out!" (John 11:43) Lazarus came out.
