We’ve all heard the phrase that nothing in life is ever free, and in the world, for the most part, that is truth.
But over the past few months whether you may have noticed it or not, our Heavenly Father has been pouring out his Spirit upon all flesh. The question is whether you are freely receiving what he is “freely” giving to us. The answer to that is truthfully between you and him. But to ensure that you are aware of his gift of freedom and because his love is being freely given away even today when we think he isn’t listening, it seems appropriate to freely share some of his Good Words that he is providing in a form and forum that is akin to the signs and wonders of the last days.
Well, it’s not exactly the kind of signs and wonders that most people think of when they read Scriptures, but then again the Scriptures are a plethora of parables, allegories, signs, wonders and word plays, so it’s all Good News.
Aand granted signs and wonders to be done by their hands.Long time therefore abode they speaking boldly in the Lord, which gave testimony unto the word of his grace,
Those hands aren’t just the hands of people in ancient days. The signs and wonders of today that are in alignment with Scripture need to be observed from the perspective of the times we are living in, not from the perspective of your intellectual understanding of ancient fleshly wisdom. That’s because the signs of today that are sent by Him will (as always) contain Father’s Word for the people of that day, as well as his righteous interpretation of his Word that can be applied in that day, according to the body’s understanding of the Father.
So how do we know if what we are reading or hearing is his truth? His Spirit of Truth, his Holy Spirit will lead you to all Truth. So test out the signs and wonders and make sure you are looking to hear His voice behind the words.
Here is a link to a ripening Fruit Tree in the Spiritual Clouds of the Internet. Feel Free to Feast upon the hundreds of signs (banners) and wonders (words to make you wonder) that were created as works of these tiny hands. Feel free to reply when you have eaten of the fruit and share the link so that others may be fed.
Remember. Although we may repent of our sins and freely receive Messiah today so that we may have the hope of resurrection after death to eternal life; the price Messiah paid in his blood and body so that we could freely receive the GIFT of Salvation, cost him everything. He did it because he truly loves us.
And in short, even in eternity, nothing is free. Count the cost of your life and where you are heading today. Then repent of your life your way and receive Messiah by his Spirit. Then pray and read his Word daily. He’ll tell you by his voice what he wants you to do. Everyone’s walk is unique to them, but part of it is always being willing to go out and preach the good news of salvation and freedom from sin for a truthful and heartfelt repentance.
Mat 10:8 – Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
Be healed. Be well. Take up your mat (Matthew) and walk, without fear and condemnation. Then endure until the end and be blessed forever in Messiah.
The walk may be challenging and you may feel like you will lose friends, family and things that you formerly thought were important. And you will. But Father restores the things that truly matter, and in time you won’t miss the things you thought were so important before. Like Paul, when you have a clearer vision, you’ll count it all as dung anyway. So cheer up. Messiah is here to save you. It will cost you repentance and faith, sacrifice and endurance.
But at least the Gift Receipt is Free.
