This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. – Psalms 118:24 (KJV)

The Name…

Apr
10

Welcome once again to my humble abode, I hope that everyone is seeing the brighter side of their day and if they aren’t I would just like a moment to present to you one bright side of everyday!

Jesus

Jesus! That’s right, Jesus Christ is the brightest side of everyday that we will ever have on this very earth as long as we shall live and even after this life to infinity and beyond, but how many of us ever take in the true power and meaning of that name, how many of us ever take in the true power of our Lord Jesus Christ and savior? Now I’m sure many will say ‘It’s just another one of the many names that God has chosen to call himself.’ but this is one of the very last names that God has decided to choose for himself to show us how great and true he really is, this is the very name where he clearly states all throughout the bible the true name of his true form and of his magnificent power.

We can read in verses below that ALL power in heaven and EARTH has been given unto the name of Christ, not just ‘some’ or a little bit of heavenly power and strength but ALL.

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Matthew 28:18 K.J.V.

Now isn’t that just an amazing thing that Jesus  is so much more powerful then most of us can even imagine, I mean, even if we believe we have it figured out about him and even if we do we still can not even begin to fully comprehend the wonderful acts that he can pursue or how glorious he really is.

For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. –
Colossians 2:9 K.J.V.

He IS the fulness of the Godhead, when I think of Christ I often think of these two words put into a perfect harmony in my mind that ‘HE IS’ because we can go over the many names for Christ, or we can even go over his many attributes of pure greatness and majesty, but when it all really comes down to it if we don’t recognize that Jesus Christ ‘IS’ then I’m afraid we are missing out on everything.

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. – 1 Timothy 3:16 K.J.V.

One of my very favorite verses when it comes to describing to us who Jesus Christ really was in this life and in the next, he WAS GOD, manifested in the flesh, justified in Spirit, the angels seen him, he preached unto Gentiles, believed on in this world, and received up into glory, it very well states that this was God, so who else could it been?

But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him. – 1 Corinthians 8:6 K.J.V.

Christ:

Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 

For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: – Colossians 1:15-16 K.J.V.

He IS our one God, the Father, whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus, by whom are all things, and we by him, I don’t know about you but for me when we really grab a hold of it’s true meaning it ought to really make us joyful inside, knowing that we know such a great and mighty God that has such power where with him ALL things are possible. 

Amen He IS

I don’t know about you my friends but I am sure very grateful that God took it upon himself to come to this earth in human form to bear the worlds sins on the cross so that we might be saved – (1 Peter 2:24) I am exceedingly glad that he did these things, and furthermore let us know that there is NO  other name by which we MUST be saved.

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12

Praise God and amen for that, we also can learn so much more from his name but I try to keep my  blog posts around 1,000 words or less, but to just make one more point I would also like to try and mention that we will also suffer great persecution for his name sakes, it truly is ALL found in HIS name everywhere we look in the bible.

And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. – Mark 13:13 K.J.V. 

And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. – Acts 4:18 K.J.V.  (Seems to me this is still happening a lot today, even in some of the ‘Churches’)

Preaching in Jesus name caused the apostles to be imprisoned and martyred, we are no greater or no less than them, and in these days there are still many brothers and sisters in Christ who take the persecution bravely and boldly for his names sake’ let us not forget them ever. 

In Conclusion:

Jesus – The NAME of the Father, the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, he holds ALL power in heaven and in earth, he IS the I AM and the I AM HE. We must not forget these things, we must always be in the remembrance of such power in his name, you know there is the old Gospel song that puts it this way – JESUS – There is SOMETHING, about that name, if and only if we could all just fully – grasp the entirety of what that something really is, perhaps then we could have our eyes completely opened to his truth.

The conclusion of this post will be shorter than the other ones in the past, but that is only because I think that I have covered all the bases and the above paragraph not including everything else is above and beyond ENOUGH and ALL that anyone ever needs to know on the matter, because when it comes to our Lord Jesus, we NEED to know one valuable aspect and this very aspect where so many seem to lose sight of is this.

HE IS

Until next time my long distant friends, I’m Nathan Tune signing off from the deeply Conservative pinewoods of East Texas, have a lot of fried chicken, mashed potatoes, biscuits and gravy and don’t forget to say thanks for all the little things in life.

Stand…

Mar
23

Hello again, neighbors, friends, brothers, sisters, ladies, gentlemen, webianites, internetonians, people across the land, sea, and world.

stand
I am here to talk with you today about one thing, who knows though, my mind can quickly move from one thing to another just like that (you don’t know it but it just did) but no worries because I’ll work hard to stay on topic, maybe.

Winston Churchill not an uncommon name as far as people actually knowing that name I mean, not a man that isn’t famously recognized across the world, because he is, and if anyone knew more about taking a stand on something it most certainly was him.

He was a powerful man in strength, integrity, boldness, guts, faith, patriotism of his country, and in determination to stand against the evil of his time, he wasn’t afraid of these things, he wasn’t afraid to speak his mind.

As matter of fact, he embraced it, he was a man that gave people hope, he was a leader. Back then we actually had those, today though I bet if Churchill said even a small fraction of what he did back then, he would be labeled a hater probably even put in jail for ‘racism’ and so much more, our world has come a long ways.

Good things and bad things, where we have failed in one area, we’ve learned to make up in another. However, we also can’t seem to break ourselves from making the same mistakes over and over again, we need to realize that we can’t allow history to repeat itself and sadly it already has a lot, people swore they would never let this happen again, but sadly that generation is dying off and there isn’t enough smart enough to care.

Or is there? Perhaps there is, actually I believe there is. 

The only problem however, is that those who actually care, don’t seem to care enough. They understand the problems very well, they know what is going on in the darkened world and they just don’t know what to do, or perhaps they are afraid? Is that it?

Yes, that could be… These are dark times that we are living in and I’m afraid if we don’t do something now, we will indeed repeat history, we may very well be on the brink of WWIII but horribly enough; hardly anyone is paying any attention to the signs, hardly anyone is standing up.

Churchill once said:

You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life. – Winston Churchill

People these days are weak, and I know I am at guilt myself at times, but we must understand. If we don’t stand, who will? I know that we often think it won’t really matter, people won’t listen, ‘they’ll think I’m crazy’ ‘they’ll make fun of me’ ‘they won’t be my friend anymore’ ‘I’ll have enemies’ what then?

Well, I guess then you have enemies, but if the cause is great enough, deep down no matter what you will know, you will know to keep moving forward because you will realize how much it matters that you do.

I didn’t intend to get off into this subject, but now that I am here, let me find some way to conclude my thoughts on the matter so we can move along.

Ahh…

I will leave you with this quote on the matter.

“If you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything.” – Gordon A. Eadie

It seems that has what is slowly, possibly more rapidly each day in our society, our world is filled with this almost ‘universal’ belief that all beliefs are equal and that they qualify to be as much truth as anything else, and with time that will destroy everything that we as a society stand for.

Because without truth, then nothing really matters anymore does it? Well actually I seem to be getting somewhat off the subject again. Maybe not.

Without truth then there is no longer a reason to ‘take a stand’ because there is nothing to stand for because we have at that point fallen for the outright lie that all things mean the same thing, all religions are equal (including satanist, which just isn’t true) all things are the same.

By that point we might as well be living in ‘The Giver’ now that movie was something else, it sure made you appreciate life more, because personally, I believe it showed us all the things may take for granted in our every day lives.

And when we lose the ability to stand up for the most important things, all else will fall behind, we have to continuously make a stand my friends, a bold stand a strong stand.

We cannot let ourselves be moved from that stand either, because there is meaning and value in what we believe, as Christians we cannot let our faith be crushed and destroyed having to watch it crumble before us like it was nothing, because it is something we cannot give up the fight and as Americans we cannot let our patriotism be burned out of us.

It’s important that even if our ‘leaders’ don’t believe in anything, we must. Because if one thing is for certain it’s this, America isn’t our Government, America is the people.

Because when tables really get turned over, American’s true pure patriotic Americans, know how to rise to the occasion, and that is why I’m proud to be an American.

The Government never has defined us as a people, it cannot, because we are so diverse. The people define America, the people is what makes America great.

And I encourage you, as Christians, as Americans, to stand with me, to stand strong, preach truth. Spread truth.

Stand with Israel and show them support in prayer and everything you can do to show them that even if our leaders don’t, WE DO.

Until next time my friends.
