The Exalted Lamb of God

John 1-29It is said that March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. The implication is that the early days of March are volatile and forceful while the later days are calm and peaceful.
Conversely, Jesus Christ came to the earth, the first time, as a calm and peaceful  Lamb.  He came to be God’s gracious and merciful covering for our sins. 1 John 2:2; 1 John 4:10.  In the days of His flesh, He was meek and humble. As such, he was depicted metaphorically as the Lamb of God.
As the resurrected Lord, He is still depicted metaphorically as the Lamb of God. Now, however, in the heavenly realms, He is the Ruler of All, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. In the book of Revelation, the book in which Jesus Christ shows what must happen very soon, the exalted Lamb of God is referred to 25 times! As you read and meditate on God’s prophetic word, my prayer for you is that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ may give you spiritual wisdom and revelation in your knowledge of Him.

A Special Grace

On November 11, 2017, my husband of 36 years went home to be with the Lord. He was a gentle man, the kindest man I have ever known. Bobby, you made it. I look forward to seeing you again. Bobby

A Special Grace

Oh, the complexities of grief
I lament, I cry deep tears of sorrow
Yet, I hope
and have faith for an eternal tomorrow
I am sad, my head is hung down
Yet, I laugh,
And share joy all around
Yes, I can grieve and still have faith
Yes, I do grieve,
For I have been given
A Special Grace
A special grace which dries my tears
When I cry aloud
A special grace which seals my heart
That lets me know we are not apart
A Special Grace
Given to me from above
A Special Grace
That lets me know
That I am loved.

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. In Jesus’ name, Amen.  (Ephesians 1:17-19 NASB)
