There’s a new world promised – Revelation 21

I pray that he will give light to the eyes of your hearts, so that you will understand the hope to which he has called you, what rich glories there are in the inheritance he has promised his people and how surpassingly great is his power working in us who trust him. It works with the same mighty strength he used when he worked in the Messiah to raise him from the dead and seat him at his right hand in heaven, far above every ruler, authority, power, dominion or any other name that can be named either in the ’olam hazeh or in the ’olam haba.

Also, he has put all things under his feet and made him head over everything for the Messianic Community, which is his body, the full expression of him who fills all creation. Ephesians 1:18-23

Here’s what the Apostle Paul said when summing up what he believed as recorded in the Complete Jewish Bible:

For it is we who are the Circumcised, we who worship by the Spirit of God and make our boast in the Messiah Yeshua!

We do not put confidence in human qualifications, even though I certainly have grounds for putting confidence in such things. If anyone else thinks he has grounds for putting confidence in human qualifications, I have better grounds: b’rit-milah on the eighth day, by birth belonging to the people of Isra’el, from the tribe of Binyamin, a Hebrew-speaker, with Hebrew-speaking parents, in regard to the Torah, a Parush, in regard to zeal, a persecutor of the Messianic Community, in regard to the righteousness demanded by legalism, blameless.

But the things that used to be advantages for me, I have, because of the Messiah, come to consider a disadvantage. Not only that, but I consider everything a disadvantage in comparison with the supreme value of knowing the Messiah Yeshua as my Lord.

It was because of him that I gave up everything and regard it all as garbage, in order to gain the Messiah and be found in union with him, not having any righteousness of my own based on legalism, but having that righteousness which comes through the Messiah’s faithfulness, the righteousness from God based on trust.

Yes, I gave it all up in order to know him, that is, to know the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of his sufferings as I am being conformed to his death, so that somehow I might arrive at being resurrected from the dead.

It is not that I have already obtained it or already reached the goal – no, I keep pursuing it in the hope of taking hold of that for which the Messiah Yeshua took hold of me.

Brothers, I, for my part, do not think of myself as having yet gotten hold of it; but one thing I do: forgetting what is behind me and straining forward toward what lies ahead, I keep pursuing the goal in order to win the prize offered by God’s upward calling in the Messiah Yeshua.

Therefore, as many of us as are mature, let us keep paying attention to this; and if you are differently minded about anything, God will also reveal this to you. Only let our conduct fit the level we have already reached.

Brothers, join in imitating me, and pay attention to those who live according to the pattern we have set for you. For many – I have told you about them often before, and even now I say it with tears – live as enemies of the Messiah’s execution-stake. They are headed for destruction! Their god is the belly; they are proud of what they ought to be ashamed of, since they are concerned about the things of the world.

But we are citizens of heaven, and it is from there that we expect a Deliverer, the Lord Yeshua the Messiah. He will change the bodies we have in this humble state and make them like his glorious body, using the power which enables him to bring everything under his control.
Philippians 3:3-21

And I will give them singleness of heart and put a new spirit within them. I will take away their hearts of stone and give them tender hearts instead. Then you’ll obey my statutes and be careful to obey my commands. You’ll be my people! I’ll be your God! Ezekiel 11:19-20

A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. John 13:34

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these." Mark 12:30-31 NIV

Now that we know what we have – Jesus, this great High Priest with ready access to God – let’s not let it slip through our fingers.

We don’t have a priest who is out of touch with our reality. He’s been through weakness and testing, experienced it all – all but the sin. So let’s walk right up to him and get what he is so ready to give. Take the mercy, accept the help. Hebrews 4:14-16

God is trustworthy: it was he who called you into fellowship with his Son, Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord. Nevertheless, brothers, I call on you in the name of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah to agree, all of you, in what you say, and not to let yourselves remain split into factions but be restored to having a common mind and a common purpose.1 Corinthians 1:8-15

As is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet: "A voice of one calling in the desert, ’Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.

Every valley shall be filled in, every mountain and hill made low. The crooked roads shall become straight, the rough ways smooth. And all mankind will see God’s salvation.’ Luke 3:3-6 NIV

For he (God) has set a day for judging the world with justice by the man he has appointed and he proved to everyone who this is by raising him from the dead. Acts 17:30-31 NLT

The test of true religion is ’Does God answer? If you are sincere He will show Himself.

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest.
Walk with me and work with me – watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you.”Matthew 11:28-29"://www.biblestudytools.com/msg/matthew/passage.aspx?q=matthew+11:28-29

When we see who Jesus is and realise our need of Him, God’s perfect plan is established in us.
When Jesus is honoured and takes His place as ruler over us,
When the Holy Spirit is guiding our steps …
Wars will cease
Judah will be saved
And Israel will finally live in safety!

The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come!’ Let anyone who hears say, ‘Come!’ And let anyone who is thirsty come – let anyone who wishes, take the water of life free of charge." Revelation 22:16-21

Here two men discuss their experiences with Jesus then speak directly to you:

Mark this: Unless you accept God’s kingdom in the simplicity of a child, you’ll never get in. Luke 18:17
