Tempest of Authority

Uncategorized

“To know the tempest at the height of glorious might; where the froth foam sprays and the dark chroma of its raging bearer betrays it’s attempted authority.”

When Jesus and His disciples were in their boat during a terrible storm that threatened to swamp them, Jesus Christ was sleeping peacefully. His disciples came, and for fear of the storm awoke Him crying, “Lord, save us! We are perishing!”

The Lord rebuked them asking, essentially, if you are My disciples why do you fear?  I can see why the Lord might be asking them, is your belief in Me vain?

“To know the tempest at the height of glorious might, where the froth foam sprays and the dark chroma of its raging bearer betrays it’s attempted authority.”

The storm that raged about them was attempting to claim authority over them in its fierceness. The disciples had not yet recognized that Jesus was the Christ who has authority even over the wind and wave.

But, we who are Christ’s do know. And we are sure of the authority of Jesus Christ in continuing fullness of understanding and evidence daily. Therefore, let not our belief in Jesus Christ be found to be in vain during the contentious storms that would tear us assunder in our own lives.

Understand that we already have authority in Jesus Christ over every storm that comes against us. The storms brought on by ignorant callous, and apathetic regard; which regard brings the angry waves of confusion and unrelatable suffering of that within you. Those where the consequence of continuingly ignored injustices crush the spirit; and where the ravening threatens to unhinge the mind to claim victory.

“To know the tempest at the height of glorious might, where the froth foam sprays and the dark chroma of its raging bearer betrays it’s attempted authority.”

“Love one another as I have Loved you.” spoke our Lord. Jesus came full of grace and truth. And of His fullness we have received, and grace for grace. Therefore, having this excellent and graciously merciful example set before us, let us likewise with tenderest embracing, Love one another in the fullness thereof.

We Need Only Speak Truth

Uncategorized

The only thing we need do is speak truth whenever we speak. The light of truth will take it from there. Consider for a moment how often in our lives we have not spoken truth in a matter. Why would that be? Are we not children of the Almighty Living God who does not speak lies? Do we not follow our Lord Jesus Christ who came in all graciousness and truth? Are we not to imitate Him whereby we would also speak truth?

Whatever the fearful situation you would be in that would impend a lie across your lips, you need only speak the truth of the matter still. Whatever burden that may be upon you will be relieved. The truth sets you free and it is with truth that we defeat our fears.
