For us and in us!
From Hebrews... dig deep!
“...the future world we are talking about will NOT be controlled by angels” (Heb. 2:5).
“Because God’s children are human beings—made of flesh and blood—Jesus also became flesh and blood by being born in human form. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the Devil...” (Heb. 2:14).
“We all know that Jesus came to help the descendants of Abraham, NOT to help the angels. Therefore, it was necessary for Jesus to be in every respect like us, his brothers and sisters, so that he could be our merciful and faithful High Priest before God” (Heb. 2:16-17).
STRENGTH for God’s People, DELIVERANCE from feebleness, repeating the same old cycles!! The FREEDOM to make true progress!! All of this comes to us who REALLY BELIEVE through what Hebrews 2 speaks of: THE INCARNATION!! Jesus, the seed of Abraham, just as we are... a MAN, just as we are—making and living in a COVENANT OF LOVE with the Father, just as WE can!! And LIVING FREE!!! Just as we can, who REALLY BELIEVE, through thick and thin!! if we will be settled, rooted and grounded, with DETERMINED unwavering HOPE—based on the incarnation and absolute victory of JESUS!!
**“BUT WE SEE JESUS”** Now, “crowned with Glory and Honor”! He took our humanity, a body like our body, trials and temptations and stresses like ours. Oppositions and heartaches, preferences given up—everything we experienced and a hundred times more. He took hold of that humanity (that shameful, weak, difficult humanity)—His, yours, and mine—and PERFECTED IT, filling it with Glory and Honor. THIS IS THE HEART OF CHRISTIANITY. A mighty covenant of FLESH and BLOOD, covenant Love. Bone of His bone, flesh of His flesh—for those that would marry Him and all that He is!
Assurance, STRENGTH for progress, HOPE in trial! “WE SEE JESUS”—and HUMANITY VICTORIOUS over sin and death and despair. HALLELUJAH—IT CAN BE DONE! IT IS BEING DONE—IN YOU WHO WILL BELIEVE IN THE INCARNATION!! For those who will not faint or give in to the mirages of the enemy and the world and our emotions... **HE IS THERE: THE PLEDGE THAT WE WILL BE THERE.** AMEN!
