Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, this may NOT be what we were expecting REVIVAL to look like!

AS IT IS WRITTEN IN 2Corinthians 3:1-18

Are we beginning to praise ourselves again? Are we like others, who need to bring you letters of recommendation, or who ask you to write such letters on their behalf? Surely NOT!

The only letter of recommendation we need is you yourselves.

Your lives are a letter written in our hearts; everyone can read it and recognize our good work among you. Clearly, you are a letter from Christ showing the result of our ministry among you. This letter is written not with pen and ink, but with the Spirit of the Living God. It is carved not on tablets of stone, but on human hearts.

We are confident of all this because of our great trust in God through Christ. It is not that we think we are qualified to do anything on our own. Our qualification comes from God.

He has enabled us to be ministers of His New Covenant. This is a Covenant not of written laws, but of The Spirit. The old written covenant ends in death; but under the new Covenant, the Spirit gives LIFE!

The Glory of the New Covenant

In fact, that first Glory was not glorious at all compared with the overwhelming Glory of the New Way. So, if the old way, which has been replaced, was Glorious, how much more Glorious is the new, which remains FOREVER!

Since this new Way gives us such confidence, we can be very BOLD.

We are not like Moses, who put a veil over his face so the people of Israel would not see the glory, even though it was destined to fade away.

But the people’s minds were hardened, and to this day whenever the old Covenant is being read, the same veil covers their minds so they CANNOT understand the Truth. And this veil can be removed only by believing in Christ.

Yes, even today when they read Moses’ writings, their hearts are covered with that veil, and they do not understand.

But whenever someone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.

For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is FREEDOM!

So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the Glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like Him as we are changed into His Glorious Image. Day by Day!

Dear ones, have you ever wondered about “things” that seem so simple and yet profound to us as Believers, just happens to be the “things” that cause some people to react strangely and without reason nor common sense?

How can people NOT Know that GOD-Jehovah is FOR them and not against them?

How can people NOT understand that Almighty GOD is a Spirit and those who worship Him must worship in Spirit and in Truth!  LINK = John 4:23-24

Here is how the Apostle Paul stated in his letter to the Galatians 3:22-29:

But the Scriptures declare that we are all prisoners of sin, so we receive God’s Promise of FREEDOM only by believing in Jesus Christ.

Before the Way of Faith in Christ was available to us, we were placed under guard by the Law. We were kept in protective custody, so to speak, until the Way of Faith was revealed. Let me put it another way. The Law was our guardian until Christ came; it protected us until we could be made Right with God through Faith in Jesus as LORD!

And now that the Way of Faith has come, we no longer need the Law as our guardian.

For you are ALL Children of God through Faith in Christ Jesus.

And all who have been united with Christ in Baptism have put on Christ, like putting on new clothes. There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are ALL ONE in Christ Jesus.

And now that you belong to Christ, you are the true Children of Abraham. You are his heirs, and God’s Promise to Abraham belongs to you.

But when the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, subject to the Law.

God sent Him to buy FREEDOM for us who were slaves to the Law, so that He could adopt us as His very own Children. And because we are His Children, God has sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out, “Abba, Father.”

Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own Child. And since you are His Child, God has made you His Heir

I AM A CHILD of GOD-JEHOVAH – KING of kings and LORD of lords.
