The Way Everlasting

The Way Everlasting

Here are two different versions of the same Bible verse:

And see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.  (Ps 139:24 NKJV)

Don’t let me follow evil ways, but lead me in the way that time has proven true.  (Ps 139:24 CEV)

As we can see from the second version of Psalm 139:24, the way everlasting is the way that time has proven reliable or trustworthy.  We can choose to live according to the world’s way, or we can choose God’s everlasting way.  Only one of these ways is true.  Only one of these ways will lead you to eternal happiness.

The way everlasting asks us to submit our will to Christ, our Savior and to adopt His values and goals. It will transform our character progressively to be more Christlike.  His way will lead us to bear good fruit to God (Jas 3:17), and permit us to transfer that fruit with us into eternity.

It’s vital for us to remember that the life that we lead here on earth, in all regards, is not for this earthly, measured time but for eternity.  Our earthly lives are a spiritual test for:

  • The quality of our characters,
  • The motives for our work, and
  • The motives of our hearts.

Each and every one of us need to make corrections and adjustments to our attitudes and our lives.  We all need to be led by the Lord and His righteousness, and every one of us needs to allow God to teach us and to show us the path for our feet. 

Lead me, O Lord, in Your righteousness because of my enemies; make Your way straight before my face.  (Ps 5:8 NKJV)

Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God; Your Spirit is good.  Lead me in the land of uprightness.  (Ps 143:10 NKJV)

Since we who follow Jesus Christ have made the choice to live in the way everlasting, let us consider seriously what corrections and improvements that the Lord may be urging us to make today.  Glory to God!

The Rock

The Rock

The Lord lives! Blessed be my Rock! Let God be exalted, the Rock of my salvation!  (2 Sam 22:47)

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.  (Ps 18:2)

In God is my salvation and my glory; the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.  (Ps 62:7)

This expression [Rock of my salvation] stimulates vivid imagery and a sense of security. Our God is a trustworthy, reliable, resolute Savior.

Isaiah 28:16 says:  Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation, a tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; whoever believes will not act hastily.  [not be panic-stricken]

This is the ‘stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone.’  (Acts 4:11)

From these various passages of Scripture, we understand that Jesus is our Rock and our foundation—even the chief cornerstone of our faith!  Jesus is solid, secure, and unmovable.  He is our sure foundation who never changes, and who never fails.  Glory to God!

Put your faith in Jesus, alone, and you won’t be disappointed.

Mediator & High Priest

Mediator & High Priest

Good day to you! 

Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Christ Jesus. . . (Hebrews 3:1 NKJV)

Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.  (Hebrews 4:14 NKJV)

But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises.  (Hebrews 8:6 NKJV)

But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation.  Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.  (Hebrews 9:11, 12 NKJV)

For Christ has not entered the holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us . . . (Hebrews 9:24 NKJV)

Jesus is our Mediator and High Priest.  With His blood, Jesus entered the Most Holy Place in heaven and poured His blood upon the mercy seat for us.  Now, He appears in the presence of God, representing us before the high court of heaven!

He is the High Priest of our confession, and the Scriptures tell us to HOLD FAST to our confession.  I recommend that you make sure that your confession agrees with the Scriptures so that you give Jesus material that’s trustworthy and eternal to use on your behalf!  Speak forth the promises of God’s Word for yourself and for those who need a miracle–an answer to prayer.  Stand upon the promises of God, and believe . . . KNOW that God’s holy Word is reliable and trustworthy.  It shall come to pass!

Remember that Jesus is the Mediator of a better covenant based upon BETTER promises, so make sure to use those great and precious promises that Jesus has given you!
