What a Friend we have in Jesus

What a Friend we have in Jesus,
  ALL our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
  EVERYTHING to God in prayer!
O what Peace we often forfeit,
  O what needless pain we bear,
ALL because we do not carry
  EVERYTHING to God in prayer!
 
Have we trials and temptations?
  Is there trouble anywhere?
We should NEVER be discouraged,
  Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we FIND a friend so Faithful
  Who will ALL our sorrows share?
Jesus KNOWS our every weakness,
  Take it to the Lord in prayer.
 

Are we weak and heavy-laden,
  Encumbered with a load of care?
Precious Savior, still our Refuge
  Take it to the Lord in prayer;
Do thy friends (family/world) despise, forsake thee?
  Take it to the Lord in prayer;
In His Arms He’ll take and shield thee,
  Thou wilt FIND a solace there.~Joseph Scriven

“I no longer call you servant…instead I call you friends” John 15:15

What a Friend we have in Jesus.

“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will GIVE you rest. Take My yoke and learn of Me, for I am humble-hearted and you will FIND rest for your soul” ~Jesus in Matthew 11:28

What a Friend we have in Jesus.

The Bride  “marries” her One Husband, her Betrothed, after lengthening, broadening, heightening, deepening relationship (Ephesians 3:17-19), an ever-more intimate relationship, grace upon grace, being closer and closer friends first; learning to trust and rely and being able to lean on your Beloved, sharing everything, forsaking all others, cleaving to the Living, Holy, Righteous One; the “two become one” in soul and spirit,

but the Bride relies completely, entirely, wholly on the Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Might, Strength, and Righteous Holy Pure Perfect Power of the Bridegroom King of kings and Lord of lords, the Word of God written on her heart and on her mind, the Word and the Spirit (Life) of Christ dwelling in her heart, circulating to every cell both near and far, every part of her body and soul and spirit diffused with the Holy Spirit and fire (Acts 2:4a AMP C), glory to glory, when baptized into Christ, putting on Christ, on the Vine of Christ,

and never coming out from under the Power, Protection, Provision, Preservation of God our Father, or the Presence of Christ, and the Prayers of our High Priest King in the order of Melchizedek who ALWAYS intercedes and prays in you by the Holy Spirit sent to God’s beloveds, asking and receiving, in true believers who humble themselves, surrender all of the old, to receive all of the new; submitting to God, resisting the devil, and he must flee; the God of Peace soon crushing satan under your feet when he tries to put another yoke on you; when you put God, our Father through Jesus, as your Head of Household, and the Bridegroom King of kings and Lord of lords as your Head, the Head of your spirit and soul and mind and heart and will and body and life, when you give Him all dominion, power and authority over you; coming under The Word, following The Will, led by The Holy Spirit.

God is not partial; Jesus is The Way to God, Truth of God, Life of God, who is the the High Way, the Free Way, higher thoughts, higher ways than the world’s ways, and ABLE to strengthen and enable you; God is ABLE to fill you with HIS Spirit; God is ABLE to empower you as the Bride, the True Church, partaking in the one Body and one Spirit of God in Christ.  God is not a respecter of persons, what he did for Jesus he will do for all who come out of their yoke and dependence on the world system, to yoke with the Son of Righteouseness who is one with the Father of Righteousness; to learn to abide and remain in Christ and Christ in you.

We suffer WITH Christ “a little while” (1 Peter 5:10; Philippians 3:8-11) EVERY attack of the enemy, but we have spiritual weapons of righteousness, the Word, the Spirit, and the new born-again clothes of salvation, righteousness, armor of light, truth, faith, gospel of peace, and white garment to COVER us and share in the glory WITH CHRIST (John 17:22; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Romans 8:14-17; 1 Peter 4:12-13). His Presence (His warm liquid love poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit and the glory fire light of His Presence, no words can describe adequately) whether in heaven or on earth, now and is to come, and eternity to eternity, is heavenly; unspeakable joy that carries us THROUGH the nights of weeping, crying out to God, tested again and again, so joy can come in the morning; out of our mourning, pain, uncomforted hurts, unmet needs, betrayals, and suffering.

We glorify God in our days of suffering; we glorify God in the day of our visitation; we glorify God in the day of our habitation; we glorify God in the days of testing of our faith; we glorify God in ALL our days when we KNOW the result before we were born again of God, of Water of Life, of Spirit. We KNOW the result if we don’t take EVERYTHING to the Lord in prayer; when we KNOW the result when we do; and when we KNOW our friend became our Husband, our Covering, our ALL in all circumstances, and we will NEVER be alone again; we glorify God in our body temple where Holy Spirit dwells within; giving glory to God for his Kingdom, his Righteousness, his Peace, and his Holy Spirit when he delivers you from the dominion of darkness AND transfers you into the Kingdom of the beloved Son where you have redemption and as you overcome WITH the Overcomer, as you conquer WITH the Conquerer, as you FIND the abundant grace, righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit, you triumph in victory WITH the Triumphant, glorious Victorious Risen King of Glory. Apart from Christ is nothing but dry, water-less, faithless, trust-less, worthless, truth-less, oil-less, fire-less, eyes to see-less, praise-less, comfort-less, ruthless, devoid of HOLY Spirit, desert wilderness that Christ takes you out of, leaning on Him…

  1. Lord I need You, oh I need You, every day, hour, moment…
    and you NEVER disappoint your beloveds who know you are ABLE.
    I learned to not trust the world system, not trust people through their trespasses against me, but I have learned to trust in the Trustworthy One, the Faithful, True, Righteous, Living One
    Who never fails, never forsakes His friends, His family, His church, His beloved bride, His soon-to-be many membered Body flowing with His Spirit.

    This is very inspired writing.

    I like this phrase: “the glory fire light of His Presence”. Sometimes it is hard to describe the intensity of the Presence of God at times. When the Holy Ghost Fire falls, it is so powerful–it breaks up demonic bondage within us. I have always wondered what is more powerful: the Blood of Jesus or the Presence of God. We know that Satan hates both the Blood and the Presence. I believe that the Presence of God is the most powerful thing in God’s creation. The Presence of God is not creation; the Presence is the Father within us.

    “God is a spirit, his day is spiritual, and is seen with a spiritual eye. It is pure light, pure brightness; the pure shining forth of the Lord in his glorious excellence; holiness shedding itself abroad in its glory — purity spreading itself in its immeasurable excellence.”

    “The fire fell and burned in me till the Holy Spirit clearly revealed absolute purity before God. At this point she (the Sister who laid hands upon him) was called out of the room, and during her absence a marvelous revelation took place, my body became full of light and Holy Presence, and in the revelation I saw an empty Cross and at the same time the Jesus I loved and adored crowned in the Glory in a Reigning Position. The glorious remembrance of these moments is beyond my expression to give–when I could not find words to express, then an irresistible Power filled me and moved my being till I found to my glorious astonishment I was speaking in other tongues clearly. After this a burning love for everybody filled my soul. I am overjoyed in giving my testimony, praying for those that fight this truth, but I am clearly given to understand that I must come out of every unbelieving element. I am already witness of signs following. Praise Him.”
