Genesis 3:22And the Lord God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us (Father, Son, Holy Spirit), knowing [how to distinguish between] good and evil; and now, he might stretch out his hand, and take from the tree of life as well, and eat [its fruit], and live [in this fallen, sinful condition] forever (AMP)”— c
c This sentence is left unfinished, as if to hasten to avert the tragedy suggested of men living on forever in their fallen state.
Sisters & Brothers In Messiah/The Anointed One/Christ,
As we enter into February 2021, let us never forget where we came from, Who we are & Whose we are! We should not be reacting to the situations and circumstances happening in the world around us, being tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine, but responding to The King of The Kingdom Of Heaven, The Constant One, Who changes not and has no shadow of darkness In Him. As His Ambassadors, You and I are The Light Of The World, called into The Spiritual Battlefield, focused on His Vision to Go Into ALL The World with The Love of God & The Good News of Jesus/Yeshua/Salvation, led by The Holy Spirit, Only saying and doing what He Calls us to, praying for those in authority, whether we voted them into office or not. I chose this topic of discussion, because we are presently 'In The Moment,' for such a time as this and the only way we will enter into The Promised Land is by doing it God's Way. The following Scripture Verses are a charge to all of us who believe, because His Word Is Spirit & Life, God Breathed and most relevant for reflection and response in these days and hours that we're living, moving and having our being in. Overall they have everything to do with how we treat one another, in spite of our differences, titles and positions in the world or the church. Do good diligence in reading, meditating and responding to God's Word for us in this time and season!
Then Bathsheba bowed with her face to the earth, and did reverence to the king, and said, Let my lord king David live for ever.Amplified Bible
So that he should live on eternally, That he should never see the pit (grave) and undergo decay. - Psalm 49:9
Nehemiah said unto the king, Let the king live for ever …
The book of Daniel, I believe is the most important for us to understand in this day and age, more so than The Revelation Of Jesus Christ, as given to The Apostle John, mostly because Daniel is dealing with the here and now, where the last Book of The Bible certainly shows us the things to come and it's not all the sweet by and by. How did Daniel and his three cohorts deal with their being brought into bondage in a land that was clearly not their home and prosper? These humble servants were great men of faith who lived their life unto God and their fellow man, regardless of the way things looked and became more than conquerors, overcomers, letting their light shine ever brighter, dispelling the darkness surrounding them. Loving and praying for our enemies is not just a theological doctrine, but a lifestyle all believers are to live. Realizing we could never accomplish such a feat in our own strength, not by our own might or power, we must live our life, here and now, In The Fruit Of The Spirit, according to Galatians 5. Let us take a good long look at the following three references of Biblical Kings and really see what God is showing us about how we should respect and treat one another today.
In the book of Daniel we find in chapter 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 12 the words ‘live for ever’ mentioned as follows,
Then spake the Chaldeans to the king in Syriack, O king, live for ever: tell thy servants the dream, and we will shew the interpretation.
O, king, live for ever.
And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation …
Now the queen by reason of the words of the king and his lords came into the banquet house: and the queen spake and said, O king, live for ever: let not thy thoughts trouble thee, nor let thy countenance be changed …
Then these presidents and princes assembled together to the king, and said thus unto him, King Darius, live for ever.
Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever.
Are our royals still greeted like this today?
At the Coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in the Abbey Church of St. Peter, Westminster, on the second day of June, 1953 after homage and alliance was pledged to the queen, the drums beat, and the trumpets sounded, and all the people shouted, crying out:
God save Queen ELIZABETH.
Long live Queen ELIZABETH. May the Queen live for ever.
From the above we can tell that the greeting ‘live for ever’ has been used throughout history to honour kings and queens as is in line with the promise made in scripture that those who obey God may live for ever.
The Bible promises: “The person who does what God wants lives forever.” (1 John 2: 17, Holy Bible —Easy-to-Read Version)
The Bible also tells us about his Son, Jesus, who taught “sayings of everlasting life.” —John 6: 67- 69.
Jesus’ ransom sacrifice opened the way for humans to live forever in Paradise on earth. * (Psalm 37:29)
"And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son."
– 1 John 5:11
"Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life."– John 5:24
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life."– John 3:16
"I am the living bread that came down out of heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread also which I will give for the life of the world is My flesh."– John 6:51
"And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life."– 1 John 5:20
"The afflicted will eat and be satisfied; those who seek Him will praise the LORD. Let your heart live forever!"– Psalm 22:26
"The LORD knows the days of the blameless, and their inheritance will be forever."– Psalm 37:18
"Surely goodness and loving kindness will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever."– Psalm 23:6
"Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?""– John 11:25-26
"Do not work for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you, for on Him the Father, God, has set His seal."– John 6:27
"My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand."– John 10:27-28
But whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.– John 4:14
For those of us who are followers of Jesus, every one of the above promises are Yes and Amen In Him, but have we forgotten The One Who Called us to be fishers of men, those men and women who do not yet know Him, enemies of God, those who are 'at war with Him?' The Bible says: 1 Corinthians 6:11Amplified Bible
11 And such were some of you [before you believed]. But you were washed [by the atoning sacrifice of Christ], you were sanctified [set apart for God, and made holy], you were justified [declared free of guilt] in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the [Holy] Spirit of our God [the source of the believer’s new life and changed behavior].
Yes, we may have responded to God by turning our backs from the world and looking unto Jesus, as The Author & Finisher of our Faith, but now being sanctified [set apart for God, and made holy], justified [declared free from guilt] in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the [Holy] Spirit of our God, are we seeking and saving 'The Lost?' Because of hardened hearts, blind eyes, being stiff necked and not being transformed by the renewing of their minds, how do those in the world react?
Exodus 7:11 AMP
Then Pharaoh called for the wise men [skilled in magic and omens] and the sorcerers [skilled in witchcraft], and they also, these magicians (soothsayer-priests) of Egypt, did the same with their secret arts and enchantments.
You and I are Called of God to set the captives free! That is why we were born into His Kingdom and are now Children Of The Most High, to take back what the enemy has stolen, to bring to newness of life, all who are dead in their sins and trespasses and to be repairers of the breach, between Heaven and Earth, Praying for His Kingdom to come and His Will to be done (finished/complete) on Earth, as It Is In The Heavenlies. If You & I do not do what is good and right, who will? Each of us must do our part, every gift, talent and ability is in The Body Of Christ and like Queen Esther, every confessing believer on planet Earth that is alive today is commissioned, anointed, empowered and enabled, for he has given us everything we need to live our life unto Him! On the evening of Thursday, February 25, Purim (Hebrew: "Lots"; English: Feast of Lots) begins and ends in the evening of Friday, February 26, so let us come together as One (Hear Oh Israel [Deut. 6:1-6]), be The Voice Of One, crying in the wilderness (in this dry and weary land), proclaiming Liberty (Deliverance & Freedom) and Justice (Justification by Faith In The Name Above All, Jesus) for ALL, so that we will not only survive, but thrive in this present world of darkness and enter into His Marvelous Light. Arise & Shine for Your Light Has Come and The Glory Of The Lord Is Risen Upon YOU! Why are we striving in this life for things we already have into Eternity? Jesus went to prepare a place for us, Yes, but He wishes that None would perish and that All would come to Repentance and enter into His Father's House. We have become and been made Kings, Queens and Priests, for such a time as this, to bring others who do not yet know their Purposes Into The Fullness Of God. Therefore, take courage, be strong In The Lord, In The Power Of His Might and stand In Faith & Holy Boldness like Queen Esther did.
Esther 4:14 AMP
For if you remain silent at this time, liberation and rescue will arise for the Jews from another place, and you and your father’s house will perish [since you did not help when you had the chance]. And who knows whether you have attained royalty for such a time as this [and for this very purpose]?”
Those who are faithful and endure to the end, have a future and a hope, the hope that will not disappoint us! God is on The Throne and is working all things together for our good, for those who love Him and are called according to His Purposes. You and I are on The Highway Of Holiness/Heaven, no lion can go there, no weapon formed against us, which is against God shall prosper, but we shall, as our souls prosper. Go on and Call to God in Prayer, Ask Him and he Will Answer You. The Wellspring Of Eternal, Everlasting, Abundant, Resurrection Life is about to break forth in our day, just as the floods came 'in the times of Noah.' He Will Open your eyes, ears, heart, mind, soul, spirit & strength + even in your weakness, He Will Show His Strength. His Rivers Of Living Water are about to flow like never before, because He Has Saved The Best for last! Hear what The Holy Spirit Of God Is Saying to The Church/Ekklesia/The Called Out Ones Today, Listen and be aware, know the time and the season in which we are living, prepare ye The Way Of The Lord, for His Second Coming is Imminent!
The Amplified Bible
Isaiah 43:19 "Listen carefully, I am about to do a new thing, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even put a road in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert. "Listen carefully, I am about to do a new thing, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even put a road in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert.
