GOD'S PURPOSE FOR MAN.
The word of the Lord, in the second Book of Chronicles, 7.12-15, reports the appearance of the Lord God to King Solomon at night (in a dream) and told him:
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer and this place.
Although the validity of the law of Moses, the Lord God, in his infinite mercy, had a promise of forgiveness of sins to man. Heal their land abundânciapara promise to his people. However, "It" condition: If the people will humble themselves, pray and seek His face and turn from their wicked ways, then your eyes will be open and your ears attentive to the prayers of his people.
It is precisely this purpose of God for man we meditate, the promise of the Messiah to liberate, redeem, forgive and save man from sin by the sprinkling of the blood of the innocent Lamb on Calvary's cross.
CHRIST NAILS REPENTANCE
Gospel of Matthew chapter 4, verses 16, 17, the Lord's word that describes people who sat in darkness have seen a great light: and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up. From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, Repent, because now is the kingdom of heaven.
And in Matthew 9:10-13, happened, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with Jesus and his disciples.
And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners? But Jesus hearing, told them: not the healthy who need a physician, but the sick.
But go and learn what this means: 'I desire mercy and not sacrifice. For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
Jesus offered them a parable (Luke 15. 3-7) saying, What man of you, having a hundred sheep and loses one of them, doth not leave the ninety-nine the desert and go after the lost one until he comes to find her? And having found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing, and, coming to his home, calls his friends and neighbors, saying unto them, Rejoice with me, for I have found my lost sheep. I tell you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner who repents, more than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.
Contrary to what the world expected to see the Messiah dawn on golden cradle, comgrande power, honor and glory, manifested as the kings of the earth before men, Christ arose from the most humble way we can imagine, being born in estribaria being wrapped cloth, was placed in a manger. Grew up working as a laborer, earning his bread in the sweat of his brow.
The word says that we shall see He saw no beauty that we should desire. A man of sorrows, and an odd humility, nailed on the cross for our sins and bore our sorrows.
The promise of the Messiah to save the world showed up. Then Jesus went throughout Galilee, proclaiming repentance to salvation of eternal life.
Jesus Christ, anointed by God with the Holy Spirit and with virtues, who went about doing good and liberating all oppressed by the devil, healing the sick, raising the dead, casting out devils, doing marvels, never before seen on earth. It is well to remember that ELEE the same yesterday, today, and forever will be.
The Chief Shepherd, who leaves ninety-nine sheep in the wilderness and go to search for the lost, and finding it not to spank or whipping brings, but puts it on his shoulders, and brings with joy and gladness.
The Great Shepherd who came not to call the righteous, more sinners to repentance, because there is more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.
On the day of Pentecost (Acts 2.37,38), the crowd, listening to the speech of Peter, they were pricked in their heart, and said to Peter and the other apostles: What shall we do, men and brethren?
And Peter said unto them, Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is unto you and to your children and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
FORGIVENESS FOR SALVATION
In Romans 3:20, the Word says that no flesh be justified in his sight by observing the law, because the law comes the knowledge of sin, making it necessary that the Son of God became man and dwelt among us (John 1.1 4), who gave his life a living sacrifice on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins, and rose again the third day to offer us salvation for eternity.
And today, by the sprinkling of his blood, we place of repentance, because Christ took upon himself the sin of the world (Isaiah chapter 53), opened the door of paradise, and we were enemies of God, we were reconciled by his death, and, by his blood restored peace between God and man.
And in Matthew 10:32, Jesus said: Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
The Romans 10:8-11 teaches us that the word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is the word of faith which we preach, namely: If, with your mouth confess the Lord Jesus and in your heart, you believe that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Whosoever believes in him shall not be confounded.
And when he came near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples, rejoicing, began to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen, saying:
Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord, peace in heaven, and glory in the highest. As he approached Jesus seeing the city, he wept over it, Saying, If you knew Ah well, at least in this thy day, which belong unto thy peace! But now they are hid from thine eyes (Luke 19.37-42).
In the triumphal entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem the word shows that the Lord Jesus saw the crowds, he wept over it. Cried because of the hardness of heart and the sin of the people, Jesus saw the dead man in the curse of sin, not create it with the Redeemer who came to save the world from sin and death.
Cried because your not believe in Him as one sent by God to redeem man from slavery, cried for his infinite love for humanity that was in the darkness of sin, and the light shone into the darkness, and the darkness comprehended it not.
The world was made by him knew him not. Cried she came to absolve and to save what was his own, but his own received him not, but all who received him he gave power to become children of God.
Who were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. (Gospel of John 1.5-14).
When the Lord Jesus met the sisters of Lazarus, who had died, Jesus wept, but did not miss by his friend Lazarus, for He would resurrect him, as did the Lord wept over the unbelief of the people, despite so many miracles, healings and wonders he in the sight of all.
And today things are no different, we believe that the Lord still grieves and mourns for unbelief and wickedness that plagues the people, in spite of all that Christ has done to save us, many do not believe, nor receive Him as their rightful savior.
Beloved, it is time to reflect on all this, because if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for our sins.
NAILS CHRIST DELIVERANCE
And in Matthew 11:28-30, Jesus said: Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
He drew upon himself all our aches and pains, and orders take upon us His yoke is easy and his burden light.
The easy yoke of Jesus are his statutes, and his commandments, and his burden light is forgiveness, grace, salvation. So reach rest for our souls, their glorious peace, spiritual comfort, perseverance and eternal life.
