Revelations of Jesus Christ 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of GOD is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be HIS people, and GOD shall be with them, and be their GOD.
Isn’t it strange that princesses and kings and clowns that caper in saw-dust rings, and common folk like you and me, are all builders of eternity? To each is given a bag of tools, a shapeless mass, and a book of rules: and each must make, ere life has flown, a stumbling block or a stepping-stone.
Isaiah 8:14 (speaks of Christ Jesus in this manner) . . . .
HE shall be a sanctuary, and for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offense to both the house of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem. Many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken.
Bind up the testimony; seal the law among MY disciples.
And I will wait upon the Lord, that hides His face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for HIM. Behold, I and the children whom the Lord has given me are for signs and wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in mount ZION. And when they shall say unto you, seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their GOD? From the living to the dead?
To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no LIGHT in them .
They shall pass through it, hardly bestead and hungry:
((and it shall come to pass) ), that when they shall be hungry, they shall fret themselves, and curse their king and their GOD, and look upward. They shall look unto the earth; and behold trouble and darkness, dimness of anguish: and they shall be driven to darkness. . . . . . . . . . . .
Isaiah 9:6 => for unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be on His shoulder: and His name shall be Wonderful, Counselor , THE MIGHTY GOD, THE EVERLASTING FATHER, THE PRINCE OF PEACE. . . .. . . .Glory, Glory, among the muck and mire there is hope ! Jesus Christ son of the MOST HOLY!
Matthew 18:6 - 7 “ But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in ME to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea. “WOE to the world because of offenses! For offenses must come, but woe to that man by which the offenses comes!
1John 1:9 If we confess our sins, HE is faithful to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Luke 11:23 He that is not with ME is against Me: and he that gather not with ME scatters.
Of-fence = a cause or occasion of sin: stumbling block.
Something that outrages the moral or physical
The means or method of attacking.
For-give = to give up resentment of or claim to requital for
To grant relief from payment of debt .
To cease to feel resentment against an offender:
(Mark 11:26 ) But if you do not forgive, neither will your FATHER in HEAVEN forgive your trespasses. )
With so many obstacles before us on the narrow road to eternity may we walk in one accord with ones that are on the path with us. May we have the testimony of John the Baptist- Make straight the way of the LORD, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
May we have the testimony that we gather with Jesus and beware not to scatter with the devil. We may think that we have the upper hand in a conflict between flesh and blood but really we noose our own necks. Cast off the weights that so easily beset us. Choose you this day to be a stepping stone.
