Before ALL the nations
« on: February 18, 2011, 09:40:12 AM »
Hi; Isaiah 61;10-11  " I will greatly rejoice in Yahweh, my soul shall exult my God, for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has wrapped me with a robe of righteousness as a bridegroom adorns himself with a chaplet and as a bride bedecks herself with jewels.
For as the earth brings forth her bud and as a garden causes her seed to shoot forth
so My Lord Yahweh WILL cause to shoot forth righteousness and praise before ALL the NATIONS."

* Seed is under ground until it germinates. Then the type of plant becomes more obvious as it develops.
When planted in a well looked after fertile garden there are no defects in the seed and the growth is perfect.
Amen that the seed is Christ.
* Brides and bridegrooms are also pretty particular in their attire. So our robe of righteousness is immaculate.
 We are the bride of Christ so we will shine forth like our bright morning star.
 Awesome!!

Just a thought.....should we who believe,who call ourselves the church, and say we are called the bride, I must wonder, then, who are the manifested sons?
I am just wondering, for I believe the Sons are quite different than the church.

Mic 7:8  Thou dost not rejoice over me, O mine enemy, When I have fallen, I have risen, When I sit in darkness Jehovah is a light to me.

Hi;
I feel that the sons are different to the church. Seems that they are a little bit further on in the development scheme. We have the confident assurance of a glorious future.
 We are told that we are allowed to be called the children of God and that statement seems to support that concept.
When thinking about the family illustration; what we do in the flesh seems to demonstrate  how we do more for family and care more for family than friends.
So as sons/daughters our Father does more for us than for the friends.
When I was at church we used to sing a round of the chorus..
  " Behold what manner of love the Father has given unto us,
    that we should be called the sons of God."

To actually find out the significance of what being a son of God meant blew me away. To the Jewish culture if one claimed to be a son one had the FULL rights and authority of the Father. That was why the Jews stated that Christ was committing blasphemy by calling God his Father. I was not learning that truth when I was at church. Since I have come out of the church I have come to learn more than ever before and look at life with a positive on-going learning for a glorious future as a child of God.
Seems that the church is under the law as talked about in Galations, until they are shown they too are really children of God: the law just keeps them from going too far away.
