“But their minds were hardened; for to this day, when they read the old covenant, that same veil remains unlifted, because only through Christ is it taken away. Yes, to this day whenever Moses is read a veil lies over their minds; but when a man turns to the Lord the veil is removed. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being changed into his likeness from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.
Therefore having this ministry [of the Spirit of Christ] by the mercy of God, we do not lose heart. We have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways; we refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God’s Word, but by the open statement of Truth we would commend ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.
And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled only to those who are perishing. in their case, the god of this world has blinded the minds of unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the Light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the likeness of God. We do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord
Let Light shine out of darkness, who shines in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ
Have this Treasure in earthen vessels [Christ in you], to show that the transcendent Power belongs to God and not to us. We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the Life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies” 2 Corinthians 3:12-15
now and is to come
Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done on earth as it is in heaven
now and is to come from glory to glory, grace to grace, faith to faith, strength to strength,
the King of kings and Lord of lords
the Name above every name that can be named
now and is to come
we cry Jesus!
“I will never leave nor forsake you”
“I am with you always, even to the end of the ages”
“the Christ remains forever”
if you turn to Jesus, repent, and return to our God and Father
who welcomes you with open arms of steadfast Love.
“I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father except by Me” Jesus the Christ, the Messiah for all tribes, tongues, peoples, and nations
“They sang a new song, saying, ‘Worthy, art thou to take the scroll and to open its seals, for thou wast slain and by thy blood didst ransom humans for God from every tribe and tongue and people and nation, and hast made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on earth” Revelation 5:9-10
Christ Jesus says, “Abide in Me, and I in you”
the Relationship that saves your life
to abundant Life
destroying the works of the evil one who steals, kills and destroys lives.
“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good tidings to the afflicted, bind up the broken-hearted, proclaim liberty to those who are in bondage; to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort those who mourn, give oil of gladness instead of ashes, mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit; called oaks of righteousness; built up, raised up, repaired, renewed, regenerated; given a double portion and everlasting Joy. For the Lord loves justice, hates robbery and wrong; vindicates, gives recompense, and makes a new covenant with those who through Jesus, greatly rejoice in the Lord, whose souls exult in God; who clothes with the garments of salvation and righteousness, as a bride, as a watered garden where the Word made flesh grows: righteousness and praise springs forth” Isaiah 61:1-11
