We have known for thousands of years now that the King of Glory, Son of God (YHVH) was crucified for our sake. Took the penalty for our sin upon himself and like a lamb dumb before its sheer mumbled not a word in His defense, (Acts 8:32) but always spoke the truth. Every sign under heaven aligned every prophecy spoken of by the prophets concerning his first coming fulfilled, yet many having him in the flesh before them still denied him as their Messiah. So here we are milleniums removed from the event, his disciples, and the Apostles in which letters and testimonies we read and hold dear, even if we don’t follow still resonate off the worn and tattered pages of our leather bound bibles.
So what are we doing about it? While we who profess Christ as our Savior celebrate holidays that were foreign to him, not a one kept nor sanctioned by him, we justify our ignorance, by saying, “well that is for the Jews” we say to the Jewish Messiah that wears the blood bought stains for the pain that our sin paid the wages for. Yet, every quoted page that says the “Feast of the Jews” originate from something said in the first five books of scripture that doesn’t record such a message. So again, as the title of this article suggests, now what? We can still remember the day that He snatched our lives from hell, and the freedom we felt as his words comforted us from our past sins with the promise of new life. Yet we hearkened not to Paul’s warning concerning sinning, the more that grace abounds (Rom. 6:1-15) and so we relish in our failures and create traps like a magician depending on him each and every time to help us make the great escape, which is tempting God.
For how can we knowing the agony our sin caused this just man Christ to suffer on our behalf live any longer in the fallen state he brought us out of? Are we really new creatures in him? Do we really want a new life in Him? Only you can answer that question, but I leave this thought with you today, Is Christ just an incantation on your lips that you chant when you find yourself in a self made bed of deception, or is that name that is above every name that is named, holy to you?
If it is then what are you doing?
How are you living?
Are you still in bondage or free, are you fulfilling your God ordained destiny or merely content with just being? Or for you to live is Christ, and to die is gain is that your claim to fame? (Phil. 1:21) Let’s live our lives for Him, no longer on this whimsical ride because we have decided to hold on to the truth. Walk with Yahushah (Jesus) in spirit and in truth, study to show yourself approved, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed.
Blessings to you all this day as we count the Omer Day TWO (Leviticus 23:15):
So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. (Psa 90:12)
