“In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe. 3 The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.” (Hebrews 1: 1-3 NIV)
“He is the end: the end of confusion, the end of guilt, the end of distance between yourself and God, the end of your searching and the end of your waiting. He is the end of your own efforts to find peace and contentment, the end of your own philosophies to find meaning, the end of your faith and the end of your hope.
Any hope you ever had to attain contentment through your own efforts is brought to a crushing end in Him. He is your Armageddon - the final battle in which God wins. He is the final judgment; He is God's complete will and final word. No judgment to come will contradict or dishonor what God has declared in Christ, when He embraced you to Himself.” Andre Rabe
“So let me state it as clearly as I can: Jesus is not just another promise, another prophesy, another dispensation all pointing to something greater or more significant. He is the fulfillment of every promise, the completion of every prophesy, the fullness of time, the beginning and the end, God's original thought and also His final conclusion about your life.” Andre Rabe
Jesus has spoken over any and all issue yet in your life. He has spoken wholeness and completeness over your humanity and declared you as righteous in Him! He has moved into all that defines who you are and whose you are! Christ in us is our hope of Glory for all of eternity. ‘He holds everything together by what he says—powerful words.’
In these days, “It’s crucial that we keep a firm grip on what we’ve heard so that we don’t drift off. This final word, The Message, was delivered in person by the Master, then accurately passed on to us by those who heard it (in person) from Him. Since The Message was first given, The Father has been validating it with gifts through the Holy Spirit, all sorts of signs and miracles, as he saw fit.” (Adapted from Hebrews 2)
You and I are the validation of this Message. We are The Final Word of Salvation for the entire world. God didn’t go to all this trouble for Angels. It was for people like us that Jesus came; entering into every detail of human life. Then, when he came before God as high priest to get rid of the people’s sins, he would have already experienced it all himself—all the pain, all the testing’s—and would be able to help where help was needed. (Adapted from Hebrews 2)
“So, my dear Christian friends, companions in following this call to the heights, take a good hard look at Jesus. He’s the centerpiece of everything we believe, faithful in everything God gave him to do…Now, if we can keep a firm grip on this bold confidence, we’re the house.” (Hebrews 3: 1, 2, 6a, Msg) We are the dwelling place of Jesus Christ! Don’t let anything, any philosophy, or any accuser cause you to loosen your grip on Christ in you!
“So watch your step, friends. Make sure there’s no evil unbelief lying around that will trip you up and throw you off course, diverting you from the living God. For as long as it’s still God’s Today, keep each other on your toes so sin doesn’t slow down your reflexes. If we can only keep our grip on the sure thing we started out with, we’re in this with Christ for the long haul.” (Hebrews 3:12-13 Msg)
Jesus; with us in Him and He in us is God the Father’s final word! Our life is hidden with Christ, in God.
“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live ; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” (Galatians 2: 20 KJV)
Live your life joyfully by the faith of the Son of God. Don’t be led astray from the simplicity and innocence of this Message and Final Word from God.
“But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.” (2 Corinthians 1: 3) Everything in the life of a follower of Jesus Christ orbits around ‘simple and pure devotion’ to/in Him.
