|John 3:16-17 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Could you take a beating like Christ did for your children or someone you love dearly? Could you really? Flesh being torn from your body and never make a sound.
Repeating a prayer from anyone doesn't make one saved. If there is no pull, knock on your hearts door from Jesus then you can't be saved. Jesus must invite one first before you're lost, convicted of sin and then a choice is made to be saved or answer His invitation.
No one is promised another second to live. Your next step might not be made. Your next breath may not come. Are you prepared to meet God? Once you've been saved, you'll not need to be saved again. Just as the woman at the well, Jesus gave her salvation therefore she would never thirst again.
We as parents should be teaching in a godly way always pointing them back up to God. God will never leave them and God will always be there when we can't. We will always fail no matter how hard we try. Christ is always there and will never forsake His children.
God doesn't prepare a place for you and your spouse, you and your friend. God said He is preparing a place for YOU, singular person, just for you. Therefore the choice is up to you if you want that place. No other person can make that choice for you.

|The Mercy Seat of God|
|Hebrews 9:3-5 (Part of the Tabernacle, Covenant and a Priest series).|
Ark of the Covenant
Inside the Ark
The tabernacle and its contents were all directing to something better to come. Don't confuse the burning incense smoke with the mercy seat of God. The burning incense was the prayers of the people interceding to God.
The ark was to contain particular items, a remnant of His promise. It was to be built a particular size and to have a lid, two cherubs and handles in order to carry it. It contained three items, mana. Mana was tried to be stored but it would spoil however this mana was to be stored without it spoiling. Just as today, God has only promised the hour in which you live and nothing more. The also contained a rod, a stick that was cut from a tree. This stick was dead but God made it to bloom showing that He could make something dead to be raised to life. A miracle that only God can perform. Christ has come to save us all from an eternity of death. The third and final item was the Ten Commandments, the Word of God.
Some people believe that if they found the Ark then they would have all the power in the world. However, the Ark is of no more once Jesus made a new way. Crossing the Jordan, the Ark held the water back. Marching around the walls of Jericho the Ark was there and thru the power of the Ark, the walls fell. At one point the Philistines stole the Ark and placed it in their "god's" temple but the next day the Ark destroyed their god. People could not touch the Ark just in the story of when the Ark was about to fall and someone stopped it by touching it and they were slain dead. Even though there was power in the Ark of the Covenant, there is much more power in God's Word, the bible. The bible contains all of the promises of God and His eternal life.
So what's so important about the box, the Ark? We know it's about the covenant or His promise but what else? It's His mercy seat, it's all about mercy. God provides mercy in that very time of need that we ALL can go to Him with our needs of mercy. Romans 3:23 God didn't owe us anything for we had no right to God. But, He has called to us because He loves us.

|Beyond the Veil|
|Leviticus 16:5-22 (Part of the Tabernacle, Covenant and a Priest series).|
Inside the Holy Place
Blood had to be offered before the mercy seat. No one was sinless so the high priest had to cleanse himself then his household, then he could cleanse the people. Only then, offer the sin offering was able to enter the holy of holies to offer it to mercy seat before God.
Jesus our high priest didn't have to offer any blood for himself. Being sinless, His blood was only for us. Jesus' blood cleansed past, present and future sins for all people. The blood of the bullock and goats only paid for past sins.
Because Christ's blood is sufficient for all atonement no matter what we do, we can't lose our atonement. The sacrifice of Jesus was better than any goats blood.
There is a fountain of blood that flows from Emmanuel's veins.
Jesus' blood covers like a flood. We're plunged from head to feet and covered past, present and future, never can be lost.
The second goat was the escape goat. Christ was both our sacrifice and our escape goat.

|There IS a God|
|Matthew 6:30-34 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|If we have God on our side because we are a Christian then we shouldn't want for anything. He always provides in the time need. The time is coming to an end, just look around, but we shouldn't worry because we as Christians know that we will live forever in eternity with God.
With God, all things are possible. With man, it just fails time and time again. People will tell you that Gods not real but time and time again He proves Himself that He's real. People being healed when the doctors can't do anything for them.
Don't let life take control of you. Work can get in the way of doing your Christian duties. Where is your hope? If it's in anything else other than in God then you've wasted your time and life.
Just because you work in a church, give to the church, know someone that goes to church or that claims to be a Christian, have a lot of money or even do really good works. None of these things mean anything to God if you're not a Christian saved by Grace. Ready or not Christ is coming back and coming back soon. Death is sure, it's just a matter of time. Are you ready for death? Are you ready for Gods judgement? Right now is the time while God is calling. After death is the judgement and you will NOT have the chance to make things right after death.

|Romans 8:10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|The key to life is Romans 8:2. At one time there was a time when slavery was ok and not against the law. A slave owner would tell his slaves what to do and when to do it. But something changed and the Emmancipation Proclimation was created and therefore freed all slaves from their owners. Even though that change took place there were still slave owners even though they owned no slaves. They were still known as a slave owner just as the slave was known as a former slave. Just as in death, the body can not speak. If we are a Christian we should shut our body down to the flesh and let only God work thru us. You can never please God thru the flesh but only thru the spirit. It's Gods will to see the lost saved and those to live in a life abundantly. We open the door to sin each and every time because we live in the flesh but we should remove those things. If one plays with sin the sooner it'll burn you. Once you open the door to sin it might be small at first but it'll soon add up and become larger to where it can quickly overcome. We should be very careful with the things that we partake of and make sure it's of God and not of the devil. One must leave sin alone, turn from it and not return to it. The "slave owner" still lives today and calls to everyone in order to control them. The slave owner being Satan wants all of us to be controlled in order to be destroyed. He hates everyone and wants everyone to be with him in an eternal fire. He wants to control the Christians life so that they stumble and create a false example of God and His love. Satan wants to control the lost persons life in order to rid the world of Christians because he hates God. The Christian should never give in to sin. Put your eyes in the Word of God and know what it means to be a child of God.|
