The Sacrifice Has Been Accepted !!!!!!

25 Sep
The Sacrifice Has Been Accepted !!!!!!

If the Lord were pleased to kill us, he would not have received a burnt offering and a meat offering at our hands, neither would he have showed us all these thing. (Judges 13:23)

This is a sort of promise deduced by logic. It is an inference fairly drawn from ascertained facts. It was not likely that the Lord had revealed to Manoah and his wife that a son would be born to them and yet had it in His heart to destroy them. The wife reasoned well, and we shall do well if we follow her line of argument.

The Father has accepted the great sacrifice of Calvary and has declared Himself well pleased therewith; how can He now be pleased to kill us! Why a substitute if the sinner must still perish? The accepted sacrifice of Jesus puts an end to fear.

The Lord has shown us our election, our adoption, our union to Christ, our marriage to the Well-beloved: how can He now destroy us? The promises are loaded with blessings, which necessitate our being preserved unto eternal life. It is not possible for the Lord to cast us away and yet fulfill His covenant. The past assures us, and the future reassures us. We shall not die but live, for we have seen Jesus, and in Him we have seen the Father by the illumination of the Holy Ghost. Because of this life-giving sight we must live forever.

    Levi, I just read Judges 13, which this passage was from. Amazing! It outlines the terrible faithfulness of an angel who prophesied that Manoah and his wife would have a son. The angel refused worship, which was really lovely to read. And the son that was to be born was Samson.

    Thank you for continuing to pray for them so faithfully Levi: I also am still praying for your daughter and will continue to make this part of my petitions every day. These are long-term prayer missions.

    BTW, have you heard of National Prayer Bank (http://nationalprayerbank.com/)? You can pray for others there as well as submit your own prayer requests, then other Christians can pray for them. I put up a request for my husband and other unsaved loved ones, it’s such a comfort to have people offer encouraging messages and prayers for them.
