Today’s Devotional – January 29th

HEAVENLY DNA?

THE FOLLOWING IS AN EXCERPT FROM… “Fleeing to the Mountains, Part 3: The Abomination in My Heart”

.

.

.

.

Scientists tell us that the genetic code of the entire person is written within each and every cell of the body.

.

So each and every cell has the code for the entire body encoded within it.

.

And in a very real sense, the individual Christian has been re-created in the likeness of God (and God is the true Temple, according to Revelation 21:22 and other places).

.

Listen… “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:” Genesis 1:26. So like the tiny cell with its DNA code, so too, the Christian has a sort of heavenly DNA code written in his or her body.

.

Yes, God plants a tiny Gospel seed into the heart of every true Believer. And that little seed has the heavenly genetics of Christ written within. And as a Christian matures, that seed grows and grows until finally Christ is formed within.

.

At least that is what is supposed to happen. God has called us out of darkness into His marvelous light that we might reflect His glorious character to the world…

.

Just listen to Paul… “According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.” Philippians 1:20. So Paul desired that in nothing would he be ashamed. He only wanted the world to see Christ in him.

PARALYZED BY MATERIALISM

.

Unfortunately, for the most part, God’s people have not risen to this high and holy calling.

.

Sadly, we have been bombarded by the Devil with so much materialism and selfish excess, that the Church of God has become, to a great extent, ineffective.

.

Oh yes, we tell the world about Jesus. But does my life preach the Gospel? Do people see that Jesus is living out His life through me?

.

Listen to Paul… “Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men:” 2nd Cor. 3:2.

.

Paul here is telling us that we are to be a living book, which is to be read, by family, by friends, and by all those we come into contact with, day by day.

“EXAMINE YOUR OWN SELVES”

.

Tragically, many of us have some bad DNA mingled within our heavenly genetic code.

.

That is to say, we have been so consumed by our earthly pursuits, that we have neglected to, “…put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Magnifying_glass_on_book_iconsmake not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof.” Rom 13:14.

.

What we need, is to do some honest self-evaluation and soul-searching.

.

Just listen to Paul again… “Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?” 2nd Cor. 13:5.

.

While many Bible teachers warn us never to doubt our Salvation, yet the Bible tells us here, to examine ourselves, in order that we may correctly evaluate our standing with God.

CUT AWAY EVERY UNCHRISTLIKE FEATURE

.

We as a people, have been deceived into thinking that we can remain earthly and common, and still please God.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Mrs._WA_Chandler_Sculptor.jpg

.

But God does not accept such low-grade service.

.

Just listen to Paul… “Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God’s elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness;” Titus 1:1.

.

When God saves us, His Holy Spirit begins to inspire us to godliness: to purify our souls, and conform our lives into the image of Christ. We begin to cut away every thing that doesn’t look Christ-like, just as a sculptor cuts away everything from an image which doesn’t look like the image he or she is trying to create.

.

Well, that is the life of every Christian! To cut away everything from our selves which doesn’t look like Christ! 

.

And, because God’s Spirit works in us, giving us the desire and the ability to successfully do all this, it is guaranteed that we will ultimately be victorious, if we don’t get discouraged and give up!

And we have this following great and precious promise…

.

“Being confident of this very thing,

that he which hath begun a good work in you

will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:”

Philippians 1:6

TODAY’S PRAYER…

“Dear Lord, I give you my life! Mold me and make me after Thy likeness. Give me strength and grace to endure the painful trials necessary to purify my heart…

REVELATION 12 WRITTEN IN HEAVEN

.

“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman…And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon…And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels…And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness…And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” Rev. 12:1, 3, 6, 7, 14, 15

.

Here is a sketch of this Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12. This is the Winter Constellations of Signs Of Heaven. Besides Orion and his Horse, we also see pictured in this sketch, the Dragon of Revelation 12.

.

This Revelation 12 Woman Constellation is fleeing. As you can see, the Dragon Constellation is spewing a flood of water in her direction, as is written… “And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” Rev. 12:15. This wave of water represents Satan’s lies, and his false teachers who tell those lies.

.

Beholding the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation in winter, it seems that God is trying to get a very important message across to His people: that His Church is to flee! But what are they to flee from? Well, you can go to the article titled “The Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation”

.

WINTER CONSTELLATIONS-SEEN IN FALL: This sketch to the right is how this constellation group appears in the eastern sky in fall. This is the four primary constellations of the Winter Constellations. They can be seen in this position, in the late fall above the eastern horizon. The Woman of Revelation 12 is commonly called Ursa Major or The Big Dipper and appears in the north. Orion the Soldier is the at the bottom is to the south of the Woman. The The Dragon of Revelation Constellation’s mouth is The Hyades Cluster, and the tip of his tail is Pleiades, and his Wave of Water is primarily the Auriga constellation. The Glorious Horse Constellation head is of Perseus Constellation and his rear end is Cassiopeia Constellation.
