BIBLICAL WORD OF THE DAY: Adoption: (Gr. huiothesia)

Christian Publishing House Blog

Word of the day

Concise Bible DictionaryAdoption: (Gr. huiothesia) The Greek noun is a legal term that literally means “adoption as son,” which means to take or accept a son or daughter who is not naturally such by relationship, including complete inheritance rights. The apostle Paul mentions adoption several times in reference to those with a new status as called and chosen by God. These ones were born as offspring of the imperfect Adam, were formerly in slavery to sin. Through purchase by means of Jesus’ life as a ransom, many have received the adoption as sons and daughters becoming heirs with the only-begotten Son of God, Jesus Christ. – Rom. 8:15, 23; 9:4; Gal. 4:5; Eph. 1:5.

The One Stopping You from Moving Forward is YOU ~ Dec. 25, 2017

roseramblesdotorg

By Brenda Hoffman

Dear Ones,

This recent void phase is nearly complete. So it is you are preparing for the next stage which is the creation of your 3D dreams.

Most who wish to follow you into 5D or beyond are not interested in spiritual elements at the moment for they feel their inner and outer worlds have been turned inside out. So it is they require some sort of framework of how and why to move forward. The framework you are now ready to display.

Even though you likely believe you have not done enough – that you must have more pieces to clear or others to interact with before you create your 3D dreams, nothing could be further from the truth.

The only piece stopping you from moving forward is you.

In your mind, you have not graduated causing you to believe you must do more, work harder…

20 December 2017 Bible Reading

John is instructed to measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there, which is symbolic of comparing these things to God’s expectations:

  • Second Kings 21:13, And I will stretch over Jerusalem the measuring line of Samaria, and the plumb line of the house of Ahab, and I will wipe Jerusalem as one wipes a dish, wiping it and turning it upside down.
  • Zechariah 2:1-5, And I lifted my eyes and saw, and behold, a man with a measuring line in his hand! 2 Then I said, “Where are you going?” And he said to me, “To measure Jerusalem, to see what is its width and what is its length.” 3 And behold, the angel who talked with me came forward, and another angel came forward to meet him 4 and said to him, “Run, say to that young man, ‘Jerusalem shall be inhabited as villages without…

A loud voice commands the seven angels to pour out their bowls of wrath on the earth. The bowls of wrath are similar to the plagues poured out on Egypt. One of the important lessons we are learning is that there is a pattern to the spiritual warfare raging around us. God’s judgments, whether against Egypt, Jerusalem or the Roman Empire, are part of this pattern that spans history. This is why the message is so relevant for us, today: spiritual warfare continues and God’s hand still moves in the affairs of men.

The first bowl brings harmful and painful sores on those who have the mark of the beast and worship its image. The sores are symbolic of pain and suffering.

The second bowl turns the sea to blood killing everything living thing in the sea. This judgment reminds us of the Nile turning the blood in the Egyptian…

APOLOGETIC EVANGELISM: Explaining and Proving

Christian Publishing House Blog

Explaining the Gospel

Acts 17:2-3 Updated American Standard Version (UASV)

And according to Paul’s custom, he went to them, and for three Sabbaths reasoned with them from the Scriptures, explaining and proving that it was necessary that the Christ had to suffer and rise again from the dead, and saying, “This Jesus whom I am proclaiming to you is the Christ.”

We have already spoken about the fact that Paul reasoned from the Scriptures. However, he did more, as one can see from the above, that he explained, proved, and made an application. Many times you may read a Scripture to someone, and while it seems straightforward enough to you, but the listener fails to see the point. You may do as we mentioned previously, highlighting a word or phrase or a part of the text, and then explaining the verse. We are doing that with Acts 17:2-3, as we highlight explaining and…

Full Moon in Cancer and New Year 2018

Mother Earth Father Sun

2018 Cat

We cannot examine this full moon without giving due consideration of its proximity to the new year, and the vibrational change that goes from a ‘1’ year of 2017 (2+0+1+7=10=1) to a master number 11 year (2+0+1+8=11), or for those on a lower vibration, 2. In reality for most of us it is likely to be a combination of both 11 and the 2. Kryon tells us the meaning of master number 11 is illumination, while number 2 is about duality. Is it not ironic that illumination leads to a to rise above duality, to the truth that all is one and duality is merely a veil? My personal wish is that in 2018 we shall see many more awakening to the truth of reality, and raise the vibration of our collective human consciousness as we approach Ascension.

Back to the heavenly bodies … the Full Moon is on its…

The marriage of the Lamb has come. A wedding is taking place. The Lamb is pictured as the groom. The bride is pictured as the people of God. The bride has made herself ready through their righteous deeds. This is a picture used in other places in the New Testament to show the relationship of God’s people with the Lamb. “Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish” (Ephesians 5:25–27). Jesus also describes the kingdom of God in terms of a wedding feast (Matthew 22:1-14). This matches the words of the angel in verse 9, “Blessed are those who are…
