Our home, the place we walk, talk and exist, the land of forgetfulness.
We forget, how precious and costly our liberty and freedom is. (Many fought and died, for us).
We forget, or never realized the investment, work, and worry someone put into that company we work for. Which allows us to hold our heads high, while we provide for our families.
We forget, or never knew, what life was like before the Government became our Momma.
(Seat belts, helmets, air bags, cafe standards, cars that get great mileage, but are ruined if you bump a sign post).
As Christians, We forget, just how much God gave us. The Creator, the Great I AM, the Supreme Ruler of all, (Jesus).
He became man, so we could know the Father. (The Eternal, Existent One, the Law Giver).
He became man, no longer made in the likeness of God, as Adam, but made in the likeness of Adam. (He was born into sin).
Jesus was of the seed of Abraham. He was all man, He did no miracles, mighty works, or healings, until after He humbled Himself, to be Baptized for the remission of sins. (John’s Baptism).
As He came out of the water, He received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, and heard, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”
Why was the Father pleased?
He humbled Himself to show us the way to the Father, obedience.
The Baptism in water, symbolic of the Remission of Sin, was so the Holy Spirit could enter, to teach, guide, comfort, empower and defeat the Prince and Power of this world.
After this was the temptation. Satan’s first defeat. Then miracles, signs and wonders.
Many wanted to join with Jesus, “But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men, And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.”
Jesus choose twelve, those who would not forget, to carry His Word and His Work forward.
That is our job now. We must not live in, “the land of forgetfulness.”
Psalm 88:12. (KJV)
“Shall thy wonders be known in the dark? and thy righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?”
We see no signs, wonders, and miracles, righteousness is laughed at, ridiculed, denied.
For this to change, the Light must Triumph.
People we need to let the Light of Jesus shine, if we hope to overcome the darkness. Amen
