A NEW CREATION | #KnowingJESUS Daily Devotional

Galatians 6:16. And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

Beloved, always remember their is a priceless price paid at all times to earn the enviable prize of attaining passionate desires. Our Father in heaven had an insatiable passion to have innumerable obedient beloved sons in addition to His only beloved begotten Son in the person of our Lord Jesus Christ.
So He paid the inestimable price of making His only begotten Son to experience  a shameful painful gruesome death on the cross.  See it yourself.

Hebrews 2:9-10. But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

Romans 8:32. He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

God culminated His covenant with Abraham by chosen Israel, His seeds as His sons.

Exodus 4:22-23. And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the Lord, Israel is my son, even my firstborn: And I say unto thee, Let my son go, that he may serve me: and if thou refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay thy son, even thy firstborn.

By extension through Christ all believers of all ages and you too becomes sons or Israel of God.

Galatians 3:29: And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

But then either Israel or believers God desires obedient sons, who shall become peculiar treasures or  people to showcase His marvellous light to the sinning Worldling, globally.

1 Peter 1:14. As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:

Exodus 19:5-6. Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

1 Peter 2:9. But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

Unfortunately the nation of Israel failed God abysmally through unprecedented disobedience. See how the scriptures reveals God’s lamentation over them.

Jeremiah 7:23-26. But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you. But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward. Since the day that your fathers came forth out of the land of Egypt unto this day I have even sent unto you all my servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending them: Yet they hearkened not unto me, nor inclined their ear, but hardened their neck: they did worse than their fathers.

Ezekiel 3:4-7. And he said unto me, Son of man, go, get thee unto the house of Israel, and speak with my words unto them. For thou art not sent to a people of a strange speech and of an hard language, but to the house of Israel; Not to many people of a strange speech and of an hard language, whose words thou canst not understand. Surely, had I sent thee to them, they would have hearkened unto thee. But the house of Israel will not hearken unto thee; for they will not hearken unto me: for all the house of Israel are impudent and hardhearted.

Isaiah 1:2-4  Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the Lord hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me. The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master’s crib: but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider. Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.

Beloved, God turned to the church, the believers, when Israel failed Him., to walk according to His rule and become the Israel of God.

Galatians 6:16. And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

The rule is to become  blameless sons to show His marvellous light to the licentious Worldling all over the world. May God give you in particular grace not to fail Him in Jesus name.

Philippians 2:15. That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

1 Peter 2:9. But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

Beloved, just pause a little and examine yourself. Are you presently fulfilling this role among your world of influence? If you do,,then their is hope for their conversion, and salvation. But  if you failed, they also shall be damned like Israel of old.  You shall not fail in Jesus name.
So arise and shine as light and join force with your loving Heavenly Father to see His insatiable passion of having innumerable obedient sons attained.  When you faithfully pay this price to be a blameless peculiar people showing His marvellous light and facilitating the conversion  of the workdling  in your world of influence and increasing the number of obedient sons which is the passion of your Heavenly Father, then He also shall give you enviable Prize as  reward  in eternity.  May the good Lord depend on you in Jesus name.

Daniel 12:3. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

Dearly beloved, Jesus our Lord is His Father’s only begotten Son from eternity past to eternity future.

Matthew 3:17. And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Matthew 17:5: While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

However, working in unison with His Father’s vision and passion, He came to this world to pay the priceless price to have innumerable sons that will live eternally with His Father.

Hebrews 2:9-10. But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

Revelation 21:3. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

However there is a price for anyone and everyone who desires to become one of the sons. Such people must walk according to the rule and become an Israel of God.

Galatians 6:16. And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

What then constitute these  rules  of becoming an Israel of God?
1. you receive Jesus as your Lord and Saviour.

John 1:12. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

2. You must be circumcised in your heart. 

Romans 2:28 -29. For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God

Deuteronomy 30:6. And the Lord thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.

3. You must come out totally from the midst of the sinning Worldling. 

2 Corinthians 6:14-18. Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

4. You must live a lifestyle of the purified through the precious blood of Jesus.

1 John 3:1-3. Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

5. Your confidence must be in God not in the flesh.

Philippians 3:3: For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.

Proverbs 3:26. For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.

6. You must be a peculiar person showing the marvellous light of God to the sinning Worldling.

Philippians 2:15. That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

1 Peter 2:9. But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

Dearly beloved please examine yourself, are you walking by these rules? Only by doing so can you become an Israel of God and one of His obedient sons  that shall live with Him eternally.
The grace of God is sufficient. If you really desire to be one of the sons that shall join your Lord the only begotten Son, then commit yourself henceforth to walking by the rule. The good Lord shall help you in Jesus name.
Friend, praise God, you are awakening to the reality of the end time. The journey to the end of time  begins with the dawning rapture. But then only the Israel of God, the sons of God, shall be part of this imminent event. You must ensure  you are one.

Galatians 6:16. And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

The only guarantee for anyone and everyone that shall not be ashamed or miss the rapture, is to be one of the sons of God, through Christ vicarious death. Being sons make them to be like Him, when He appears in the sky to take them.  See what the scriptures says.

1 John 3:1-2. Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

Friend, are you like Christ, the only begotten Son ?  Do you have likeness or resemblance to Christ within and without?  See what the scriptures says about the  begotten Son in the person of Christ that you must replicate.

Hebrews 5:7-8. Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;

Philippians 2:5-8 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

It is very very painful today in the church world globally, that ninety nine percent of those who profess to be believers are ready to spend their time in service, they are ready to pay their tithes or fund programs and do so many other things. But the only thing, they lacked is wholehearted obedience, like Christ.
Unfortunately, whatever you give God, that lack obedience shall be rejected and not be acceptable.  Friend don’t bother to give God anything, when you are not prepared to be obedient to Him, like Christ, the only begotten Son, which you must replicate and be like, to guarantee your readiness and preparedness for the rapture. See it yourself.

1 Samuel 15:22-23. And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

Jeremiah 7:23. But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.

Friend , pause and check up sincerely? If you are going to be with us in that great gathering in the sky as sons to meet our Lord, the only begotten Son, then wholehearted obedience is not negotiable. It is compulsory. Don’t ever forget.
There is nothing that God shall accept or reward you for when you fail in the place of obedience.  You shall not fail in Jesus name.  If God rejected the chosen nation of Israel because of flagrant disobedience. He will do exactly the same,  for anyone and everyone in the church also. Don’t ever , ever forget.

Romans 11:21-22. For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.
