He was crucified on a cross of wood, but He made the hill on which it stood.

The New Testament is in the Old Testament concealed. The Old Testament is in the New Testament revealed.


African Missionary’s Notice

I’m part of the fellowship of the unashamed. I have Holy Spirit power.

The die has been cast. I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made. I’m a disciple of His. I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still.

My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future is secure. I’m finished with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colourless dreams, tamed visions, mundane talking, cheap living, and dwarfed goals.

I no longer need pre-eminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudits, or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded. I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk by patience, lift by prayer, and labour by power.

My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow, my way rough, my companions few, my guide reliable, my mission clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded or delayed.

I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.

I won’t give up, shut up, or let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and preached up for the cause of Christ. I am a disciple of Jesus. I must go till He comes, give till I drop, preach till all know, and work till He stops me. And when He comes for His own, He will have no problems recognizing me—my banner will be clear!

This vibrant declaration was contributed by Dr. Nina Gunter who got it from veteran missionary Louise Robinson Chapman (Africa: 1920-1940). One side note is that today this commitment statement circulates among Christians (and even web sites) with the byline "Author unknown." The story behind this statement makes it all the more potent!

My King

 

I am not a Democrat or a Republican.  I am a Monarchist.  I would like to tell you a little about my king. 

My king is a racial king – He is the King of the Jews.
My king is a national king – He is the King of Israel. 

But, He is also the King of all the ages;
The King of Heaven;
The King of Glory;
The King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  

And my question to you is do you know Him? 
Do you really know Him?

The heavens declare His Glory.
The firmament shows his handiwork;
He who is, who was and shall always be.

He is the First and the Last.
He is the Alpha and the Omega.
He is the Aleph and the Tau.
He is the ‘A’ and the ‘Z’.

He is the First Fruits of them that slept.
He is the Ego Eimi () the 'EHªYEH 'ªSHER 'EHªYEH – The I AM THAT I AM

He is the voice of the burning bush. 
The Captain of the Lord of Hosts
The conqueror of Jericho.

By Him were all things made that were made. 
Without Him was not anything made that was made. 
And by Him are all things held together.

In Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead – Bodily. 
Indeed He is our Kinsman Redeemer. 
But also, He is our Avenger of Blood. 

He is our City of Refuge.
He is our Performing High Priest;
Our Personal Prophet;
Our Reigning King.

He is enduringly strong; entirely sincere; eternally steadfast
He is immortally graceful; imperially powerful; impartially merciful.
He stands alone in Himself.

He is august, pre-eminent, unique and unparalleled.
He is the loftiest idea in literature.
He is the highest personality in philosophy.
He is the fundamental doctrine of theology.
He is the supreme problem in higher criticism.

He is the miracle of the ages;
the superlative of everything good.
He is God’s Son.

There is no means of measuring His limitless love.  It was written in blood on a wooden cross, 
erected in Judea some 2,000 years ago.

He is the only one able to supply all of our needs simultaneously.  
No barriers can hinder Him from pouring out a blessing. 

He is available to the tempted and tried.  
He blesses the young.  
He cleanses the lepers.  
He defends the feeble.

He delivers the captives.  
He discharges the debtors.  
He forgives the sinners.  
He franchises the meek.

He guards the besieged.  
He heals the sick.  
He provides strength to the weak.  
He regards the aged.

He rewards the diligent.  
He serves the unfortunate.  
He sympathizes and He saves.

His offices are manifold.  
His reign is righteous.  
His promises are sure.  

His goodness is limitless.  
His light is matchless.  
His grace is sufficient.

His mercy is everlasting.  
His word is enough.  
His yoke is easy and His burden is light.  

I WISH I COULD DESCRIBE HIM TO YOU!
He is indescribable.  
He is incomprehensible.  
He is irresistible.  
He is invincible. 

The heaven of heavens cannot contain Him.  
Man cannot explain Him.   

You can’t get Him out of your mind. 
You can’t get Him off of your hands.   
You can’t out-live Him.   
You can’t live without Him.   

The Pharisees could not stand Him.  
But they learned they could not stop Him. 

Pilate couldn’t find fault with Him.  
The witnesses could not agree against Him. 

Herod couldn’t kill Him. 
Death couldn’t handle Him.   
The grave couldn’t hold Him.

He has always been and always will be.  
He had no predecessor and He will have no successor.

You can’t impeach Him and He ain’t going to resign.

His name is a name above every name.  
That at the name of Ye’shua, every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.

His is the Kingdom – And the Power – And the Glory – Forever and ever.

Amen.

Dang it! My wife cut off all of her hair!
