A Joy Made Full

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “The foreigners who join themselves to the Lord, to minister to Him, and to love the Name of the Lord, to be His servants... even those I will bring to My holy mountain and make them joyful in My house of prayer” Isaiah 56: 6-7 Hallelujah, beloved child of God, our Lord is looking for people who will: minister to Him, love His Name, and be His servants. When God sees a person who has this heart, for the Lord Himself, God brings that person into His house. In His house, with our Lord, is where our ministering to Him is perfected and fully realized. In His house, with our Lord, is where our love for His Name and service to Him become highly personalize

Joyful In My House Of Prayer

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “The foreigners who join themselves to the Lord, to minister to Him, and to love the Name of the Lord... even those I will bring to My holy mountain and make them joyful in My house of prayer” Isaiah 56: 6-7 Praise God, my brothers and sisters in Christ, when we “join” ourselves “to the Lord, to minister to Him, and to love the name of the Lord” He makes us “joyful in My house of prayer.” Yes, priest of God (1st Peter 2:9), ministering to the Lord is always your sure path into God’s house, into His Own presence, with joy and love. I am a foreigner who has joined himself to my Lord. As Scripture says, “Remember that you were at that time separate from

Jesus, Our Witness, Leader, And Commander Of An Everlasting Covenant

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good and delight yourself in abundance. Incline your ear and come to Me. Listen, that you may live: and I will make an everlasting covenant with you according to the faithful mercies shown to David. Behold, I have made him a witness to the peoples, a leader and commander for the peoples” Isaiah 55: 3-4 Praise God, let us bless and love our Lord Jesus Christ today for faithfully being the perfect witness, leader, and commander of our Abba Father God’s “everlasting covenant.” Let us behold and understand how Jesus Christ is our “Witness,” our “Leader,” and our “Commander” of “an everlasting covenant.” God said “

Listening That We May Live

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good and delight yourself in abundance. Incline your ear and come to Me. Listen, that you may live: and I will make an everlasting covenant with you according to the faithful mercies shown to David. Behold, I have made him a witness to the peoples, a leader and commander for the peoples” Isaiah 55: 3-4 Praise God, my brothers and sisters in Christ, and let us “listen carefully” to what God has said in this text, that we may truly live and that we may delight ourselves in abundance. Let us eat what is good, the good news of Jesus Christ and His “everlasting covenant according to the faithful mercies shown to Da

Delighting Yourself In The Everlasting Covenant of Christ

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “Ho! Every one who thirsts, come to the waters; and you who have no money come, buy and eat. Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost. Why do you spend money for what is not bread, and your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good and delight yourself in abundance. Incline your ear and come to Me. Listen, that you may live: and I will make an everlasting covenant with you according to the faithful mercies shown to David” Isaiah 55: 2-3 The apostle Paul quoted this text from Isaiah, in support of Jesus, when he spoke in the synagogue at Pisidian Antioch (Acts 13). Paul said, “We preach to you the good

Singing Our New Song To The Body Of Christ

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “‘I will appoint you as a covenant to the people, as a light to the nations, to open blind eyes, to bring out prisoners from the dungeon and those who dwell in darkness from the prison. Behold the former things have come to pass, now I declare new things; before they spring forth I proclaim them to you.’ Sing to the Lord a new song. Sing His praise from the end of the earth!” Isaiah 42: 6-7, 9-10 Bless God; for Christ, our covenant, is intended to be “ a light to the nations,” opening “blind eyes,” bringing prisoners and “those who dwell in darkness” out from the dungeon and prison of sin and into the light of Him. These prophetic words were declar

Singing A New Song About The New Things Given Us Through Christ Our Covenant

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “‘I will appoint you as a covenant to the people, as a light to the nations, to open blind eyes, to bring out prisoners from the dungeon and those who dwell in darkness from the prison. Behold the former things have come to pass, now I declare new things; before they spring forth I proclaim them to you.’ Sing to the Lord a new song. Sing His praise from the end of the earth!” Isaiah 42: 6-7, 9-10 Once more, in biblical prophecy, we see Christ our “Lord” and “priest forever” (Psalm 110: 1&4) being spoken of in terms of establishing a new covenant, through which we are saved and become priests to our God (revelation 1: 5-6), singing a “new song” of the

You Will Be Spoken Of As Ministers Of Our God

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to captives and freedom to prisoners; to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord... But you will be called the priests of the Lord; you will be spoken of as ministers of our God... And I will faithfully give them their recompense and make an everlasting covenant with them” Isaiah 61: 1-2, 6, 8 My beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, there is only one way possible for us to be “spoken of as ministers of our God” in this day and that is for us to actually be, and practice being

Jesus Has Come To Make Us Ministers Of Our God

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to captives and freedom to prisoners; to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord... But you will be called the priests of the Lord; you will be spoken of as ministers of our God... And I will faithfully give them their recompense and make an everlasting covenant with them” Isaiah 61: 1-2, 6, 8 All Christians, I hope, are familiar with the first part of this prophecy from Isaiah, for these are the words which Jesus spoke, in the synagogue in Nazareth (Luke 4:18-21), when He began

So That You Will Not Grow Weary And Lose Heart

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart” Hebrews 12:1-3 Hallelujah my friends, if we keep our eyes simply and completely fixed upon Jesus, as we run our race, and constantly “consider Him,” then we will never have to “grow weary and lose heart” in this life! I look at it this way. Jesus IS my heart. Jesus lives in my heart and

“Consider Him”

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider Him” Hebrews 12:1-3 How blessed we are, my brothers and sisters in Christ, to be partakers of a New Covenant relationship with Jesus, our Savior, our “Lord” and “priest forever” (Psalm 110: 1&4), and to be directed that we should always “consider Him.” How blessed we are to be able to “consider Him,” to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2nd Peter 3:18) every

Summing Up - Let Us Fix Our Eyes On Our Lord & High Priest & His New Covenant

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:1-2 After all of the beautiful in-depth, chapter after chapter, teaching concerning Jesus, our Lord and High Priest of a New Covenant, which the author of Hebrews clearly shared throughout this New Testament document, he summed things up simply and compellingly in this twelfth chapter with the exhortation for God’s New Covenant church to “run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing

Fixing Our Eyes

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:1-2 If our eyes are not “fixed” upon Jesus, then we have a “broken” and distracted view. The only way to “fix” our view is to “fix” our eyes on Jesus. When our eyes are solely and completely “fixed” upon our Lord and High Priest Jesus, then our spiritual vision is truly “fixed” in every way. It does take “endurance” to keep our eyes “fixed” upon Jesus and Him alone. However there is no better pla

Keep Your Eyes On Your Victory

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:1-2 This summing up word of exhortation, near the close of the author’s letter, is the last direct reference to Psalm 110 in the book of Hebrews (“The Lord says to My Lord: ‘Sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet’” and “The Lord has sworn and will not change His mind, ‘You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizadek” - Psalm 110: 1&4). The first re

Let Us Not Be “Dull Of Hearing” About Jesus Our High Priest

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the things that He suffered. And having been made perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation, being designated by God as a high priest according to the order of Melchizadek. Concerning him we have much to say, and it is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing” Hebrews 5: 8-11, Psalm 110:4 Oh beloved child of God, let us never be and never become “dull of hearing” when it comes to the precise and complete truth of our salvation, of our Savior, of His New Covenant blood, and of His office as our “high priest forever according to the order of melchizadek.”

Concerning Him We Have Much To Say

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the things that He suffered. And having been made perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation, being designated by God as a high priest according to the order of Melchizadek. Concerning him we have much to say, and it is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing” Hebrews 5: 8-11, Psalm 110:4 The author of Hebrews had “much to say” concerning Jesus Christ our glorious “high priest according to the order of Melchizadek.” Indeed, everything written up to this point in Hebrews was concerning this theme of Christ, our High Priest, of a new and better covenant.

Obeying The Source Of Our Eternal Salvation - Christ Our High Priest

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “Christ did not glorify Himself so as to become a high priest, but He who said to Him, ‘You are My Son, today I have begotten You’; just as He says also in another passage, ‘You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizadek.’ Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the things that He suffered. And having been made perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation, being designated by God as a high priest according to the order of Melchizadek” Hebrews 5:5-6,8-10, Psalm 110:4 Praise God, Jesus Christ, our risen High Priest is, Himself, “the source of eternal salvation” - “to all those who obey Him.” Jesu

Learning Obedience From The Things He Suffered

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “Christ did not glorify Himself so as to become a high priest, but He who said to Him, ‘You are My Son, today I have begotten You’; just as He says also in another passage, ‘You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizadek.’ Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the things that He suffered. And having been made perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation, being designated by God as a high priest according to the order of Melchizadek” Hebrews 5:5-6,8-10, Psalm 110:4 O bless our Lord and High Priest forever, Jesus Christ! Psalm 110:4 is quoted two times within this passage of Scripture concernin

Let Us Honor Our High Priest

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “No one takes the honor to himself, but receives it when he is called by God, even as Aaron was. So also, Christ did not glorify Himself so as to become a high priest, but He who said to Him, ‘You are My Son, today I have begotten You’; just as He says also in another passage, ‘You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizadek’” Hebrews 5: 4-6 (with quotes from Psalm 2:7 & Psalm 110:4) In yet another reference to Psalm 110 in the book of Hebrews, the writer this time was declaring that just as God called, through Moses, to Aaron to make him High Priest of the Old Covenant according to the order of Levi, so also did God call, propheticall

Holding Fast To Our Confession Since We Have A Great High Priest

Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne: “Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession” Hebrews 4:14 “Since we have a great high priest... let us hold fast our confession.” Hallelujah, brothers and sisters, God has given us “a great high priest,” His only Son, Jesus. Let us hold fast to our confession of “Jesus the Son of God” Who “has passed through the heavens” for us with His perfect atoning New Covenant blood, as our “great high priest,” so He would enter “the holy place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption” (Hebrews 9:12). All praise to our “great high priest - Jesus the Son of God!” T
