PREFACE - LABORS OF LOVE

DEDICATED TO MANKIND

PREFACE

THE total scope of our job is fully revealed in the following

pages.

It is most astonishing to realize what the Divine Captain of Salvation meant when He declared to His disciples before His crucifixion, and subsequent resurrection…”GREATER WORKS

THAN THESE HE (YOU) WILL DO,” (John 14:12).

Every man, born of woman, aches, desires, and groans for what these pages reveal. These are what we can have. And what we can be now in this time, and in the world to come. Mortal man has been seduced to desire other things. Live for other matters apart from what he has been made for. Created for. And purposed for. By his Creator God. Thus, by choice. he has been trapped inside a custom-made invisible cocoon. Although he is visible to all the others in their day to day interaction with one another, they are all unaware that they are just as trapped in cocoons, and rendered helpless thereby. At the end of the day, they all feel terribly alone. Hence it is true that “all men are living lives of quiet desperation.” And so, they have become the multitude of the living walking dead on the face of the earth, (Eph 2:1-3). Their invisible captor Satan, the devil, the wicked ruler of this world, thinks he can succeed in destroying the ultimate human spiritual potential.

This, therefore, becomes one of the rarest and most important publication for the entire human race.

Now you have it in your hand. Praise God and thank Him for this!

Israel failed in that mission. And as a nation symbolically married to God, it was divorced. That was made final by the death of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Rock of the Old Testament, (1 Cor 10:4) on the cross at Calvary.

The Son of God raised up His Church. The Church of God became God’s holy people in the New Testament period. They are today, His saints, (Mat 16:18). They were called out by God the Father, and chosen by the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ from both the Jews and Gentiles for the last 20 centuries. In the New World of God to come, the Living Christ will marry His Bride, the purified Church of God.

‘’Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.

29

For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people; but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they gather

themselves together, they come to thee:

come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side.

thy sons shall

Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be covered into thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee.

The multitude of camels shall cover thee, the dromedaries of Midian and Ephan; all they from Sheba shall come: they shall bring gold and incense: and they shall shew forth the praises of the Lord

All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together unto thee, the rams of Mebaloth shall minister unto thee; they shall come up with acceptance on mine altar, and I will glorify the house of my glory.

30

Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the dove?

Surely the isles shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, unto the name of the Lord thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified thee.

And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee; for in my wrath I smote thee, but in my favour have I had mercy on thee.

Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought.

For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.

The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee, the fir tree, the pine tree, and the box together, to beautify the place of my sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious.

The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall

31

bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee, The city of the Lord,,,, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.

Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations.

Thou shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles, and shalt suck the breast of kings; and thou shalt know that I the Lord am thy Savior and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.

For brass I will bring gold and for iron I will bring silver, and for wood brass, and for stones Iron: I will also make thy officers peace, and thine exactors righteousness.

Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders: but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise.

The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the Lord shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.

32

Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself; for the Lord shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy morning shall be ended.

Thy people also shall be all righteousness: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified. As little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the Lord will hasten it in his time.’’

(Isaiah 60:1-22).

HEALING & HEALTH

The human race today inhabit a polluted planet earth. The drinking water has lost its purity and most of the urban cities of the world have to treat it with chlorine or other chemical disinfectants. The food produced in most farms and fields worldwide are sustained by chemical fertilizers and pesticides. The air we all breathe is anything but pristine and clean. The human body of everyone is under attack everywhere.

In such a world those who would follow Christ and be His disciples can be blessed with good health.

will for

humans to be healthy, or for that matter the disciples and

followers of Christ? The book of 3 rd John with a single chapter says in verse 2:

How could that be possible?

Is it GodGodsGodGod sss

‘’Beloved I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.’’

36

So, it is quite clear that it is never God’s will that anyone should be sick. And, indeed that they ought to be healthy.

Can we just wish it or are there things we must do to be healthy? To be in radiant, blessed, good health? Moreover, if we get sick, which all flesh succumb to from time to time, can we be healed? What is God’s will in this? The book of Psalms 103:1-5 discloses:

‘’Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Vs. 2: Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Vs. 3: Who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases, Vs. 4: Who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies, Vs. 5: Who satisfies your mouth with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle.’’

The book of Proverbs chapter 3 verse 1: ‘’My son, do not forget My law but let your heart keep my commands. Vs. 2: for length of days and long life and peace thy will add to you.’’

37

Let us continue with verse 7: ‘’Do not be wise in your

own eyes; fear the Lord and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh and strength to your bones.’’

Coupled with good health is the promise of prosperity in verses 9 and 10:

‘’Honor the Lord with your possessions, and with the first fruits of all your increase; Vs. 10: so your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine.’’

An additional promise on radiant health and the good life is made in Proverbs chapter 4:20-23:

‘’My son, give attention to My words; incline your ear to My sayings, do not let them depart from your eyes; Vs. 21: Keep them in the midst of your heart; Vs. 22:

For they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh. Vs. 23: Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.’’

Everything that comes with healing and health is preceded and attended by GOD’s MARVELOUS GRACE AND LIVING FAITH.

38

Grace is

mortals.

a gift of the Creator God

to His created

Living faith is just as much another gift of God added to the little faith we have when He begins to work with us.

His supreme grace is first granted to us by forgiving us from all our sins upon our REPENTANCE and acceptance of the precious shed BLOOD of the LAMB of GOD for the

REMISSION of all our SINS. We are cleansed and washed in His only begotten Son’s blood. (Rev. 1:5).

Thereafter, we live within His continuing grace daily. This we receive everyday in living faith. We are made aware by spiritual perception of that wondrous grace by the indwelling presence of faith in Christ (Ga. 3:26) inside of us.

By the same grace, we grow in the dignity of grace itself. We advance to a higher ground in the excellence of spiritual character. God-like character. Christ-like personality. The graciousness and presence about us is discerned by others.

39

The blessing of radiant good health springs in our whole existence. The freshness of the springs of shimmering life

In that state of wellbeing we are fully

nourished by consistent study, and living by every Word of God.

emanates from us.

We are fully conscious and aware of the wonderful promises of God. His divine guarantees are set forth in inspired scriptures to assure us. Thereby our faith is made very alive and flowing within every fiber of our being and our consciousness.

Every blessing that comes from God by His divine providence and grace is wonderful, pleasant and good. It carries no sorrow with it, (Pr. 10:22).

God is forever wanting to bless us with His grace.

ye

LISTEN, mortals of the world:

The Lord declared,”Ho, everyone that thirsteth, come to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye,

buy and eat; ye, come, buy wine and milk WITHOUT

MONEY AND WITHOUT PRICE.

Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? And your labor for that which satisfieth not?

40

Hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good and let your soul delight itself in fatness.

hear and your

soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David,’’ (Isa. 55:1-3).

Incline your ear, and come unto me:

Living faith makes us absolutely believe, without an iota of doubt, all the promises of God. The Lord Christ Jesus

confirms this to us: ‘’Whatsoever you ask the Father, in My name He will give it to you that your joy may be full,’’ (I Jn. 1:4; II Jn. 12).

‘’With man this is impossible, with God all things are

possible, (Mt. 19:26; Mk. 10:27).

LABORS OF LOVE

DEDICATED TO MANKIND

Prayer

HOLY FATHER, LORD GOD ALMIGHTY…

Before your Throne in Heaven, O God, we come to worship and to adore You.

We acknowledge your divine rule over all realms and dimensions of being, and our humble selves.

In forever, You dwell.

We see in our minds’ eye Your overall purpose for all mankind. Yes, everyone.

Insignificant we were, yet You will make us to have significance and meaning because you made us to be linked with your Divine Purpose. Then we can come to have our spiritual potential to be real, fulfilled and true.

We thank you for having made us to come to know by Your revelation thru the Holy Scriptures how You have foreordained to call us before the foundation of the world.

You have made us to understand that our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, and our Savior, have chosen the firstfruits, in their order and sequence. Not because they were more holy, better, or good. But that they can be prepared to become immortals to rule with Christ on Earth in the first one thousand years after His return to Earth from Heaven above. To bring splendid joy

and happiness and peace to the many, many others in that time to come.

Thereby, O God, move the hearts and minds of those you called, and will call, to make them worthy to be chosen to be drafted into the royal service of the Lord Jesus Christ.

To go, proclaim the everlasting Gospel of the Kingdom of God in all the world, to all nations. To every creature.

For a witness. For a warning in this last of the last days.

That Your glorious Kingdom come.

That the Christ, the King of kings, and Lord of lords, return and reign over the whole Earth.

That the knowledge of You may come upon the entire world as the waters cover the sea, (Isa 11:9).

ALL THESE WE PRAY, IN THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.

AMEN
