Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift. (2 Cor. 9:15) Everything of God illuminates in brilliance His divine Glory, Majesty and Supremacy. Even in the tragic School shooting three nine year old children and three sixty year old adults entered His eternal realm and for certain the children were met with a love that was able to expel all shadows of loss, parents, and their short life on earth. This is only an illustration of the power and sufficiency of God to transform evil into good, something meant for hate to love and a tragedy into an indescribable gift.
What is God’s greatest gift? Yeshua, Messiah, His only Son who was given to redeem mankind before the foundations of the earth. (Rev. 13:8) That redemption from sin and death is currently unfolding, but not completely fulfilled in the dimension of time. However, much has been received, not the least of which is the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit in Believers throughout to earth. Ever since Yeshua ascended the age of the Holy Spirit and the congregation of Believers has been growing. Before, during the age of the law we are told, “For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.”
(2 Chronicles 16:9) “…The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7) God sees us to our innermost being, nothing is hidden from Him. He is Spirit and connects with us via His Holy Spirit He has given us through Yeshua.
During the age of Law, God said, “Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it. See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.”
(Deuteronomy 30:11-16) Yeshua did not eliminate the law, but fulfilled it through His blood sacrifice for all who believe. The Holy Spirit is the guarantee and effectual power of Yeshua’s work of grace on earth. Nevertheless, a new age is coming when He returns to fulfill every remaining prophecy, redeem all Israel, crush His enemies and establish God’s Kingdom on earth. The offer stands, will you choose life in Yeshua?
