Two Kinds of Wine and Blood

April 6, 2017

.

Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit. –Eph 5:18

wine[3631] = fiery wine of God’s wrath, winepress
debauchery[810] = an abandoned, dissolute, prodigal, unsaved life

O LORD my God, I cried out to You, And You healed me. –Ps 30:2
What profit is there in my blood, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your faithfulness? –Ps 30:9

blood[01818] = blood shed causing death, wine

Two kinds of wine!
=>Wrath or Salvation(filled with the Spirit)

1 Corinthians 5:7 AMPC … Purge (clean out) the old leaven that you may be fresh (new) dough, still uncontaminated [as you are], for Christ, our Passover [Lamb], has been sacrificed.

1 Peter 1:18-19 AMPC … You must know (recognize) that you were redeemed (ransomed) from the useless (fruitless) way of living inherited by tradition from [your] forefathers, not with corruptible things [such as] silver and gold,19 But [you were purchased] with the precious blood of Christ (the Messiah), like that of a [sacrificial] lamb without blemish or spot.

Two kinds of blood!
=>Wrath{death} or Lamb’s blood{life}

Deuteronomy 32:12-14 NASB …  The Lord alone guided him,
And there was no foreign god with him. 13 He made him ride on the high places of the earth, And he ate the produce of the field; And He made him suck honey from the rock, And oil from the flinty rock, 14 Curds of cows, and milk of the flock,
With fat of lambs, And rams, the breed of Bashan, and goats, With the finest of the wheat— And of the blood[01818] of grapes you drank wine.

Honey = God’s word –Ps 119:103
Oil = Holy Spirit –Zec 4:6
Rock = Christ –1Cor 10:4

The blood of the Lamb
Christ our sinless, spotless –1Pe 1:19
Passover Lamb –1Cor 5:7
The perfect sacrifice
A life laid down
Poured out in a scarlet flow –Jn19:34;Is53:5,12; 1Pe1:18-19
Broken bread –Jn 6:51
Poured out wine –Is 53:12
No greater love than this –Jn 15:13

The Flood of His Blood

September 1, 2015

Isaiah 59:19 AMP
So [as the result of the Messiah’s intervention] they shall [reverently] fear the name of the Lord from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him and put him to flight [for He will come like a rushing stream which the breath of the Lord drives].

When the enemy comes in like a flood
The Lord will lift up a standard against him …

Pondering the above the Lord gave me this song – it really encouraged me!

The Flood of His Blood

The flood of His blood
His banner of love
… over you
… over me
… our shield
… our glory
Ps 3:3

Lift up your heads and SEE!

The flood of His blood
His banner of love
… over you
… over me
Lift up your heads and SEE!

The blood of the Lord Jesus Christ is between His children and the enemy. It’s His banner{standard} of love over His children. A comforting, protecting banner, waving over our heads. Revealing to whom we belong! Lift up your head and SEE!

🙂

Exodus 17:15 AMP
And Moses built an altar and called the name of it, The Lord is my Banner

From NetBible Ex 17:15

  • banner[05251] = standard, flagstaff
  • * “Yahweh-nissi”, which means “Yahweh is my banner.” Note that when Israel murmured and failed God, the name commemorated the incident or the outcome of their failure. When they were blessed with success, the naming praised God. Here the holding up of the staff of God was preserved in the name for the altar – God gave them the victory.

.
1 Peter 1:19 AMP
But [you were purchased] with the precious blood of Christ (the Messiah), like that of a [sacrificial] lamb without blemish or spot.

Song 2:4 AMP
He brought me to the banqueting house, and His banner over me was love [for love waved as a protecting and comforting banner over my head when I was near Him].

From NetBible Song 2:4

Psalm 24:7-8 AMP
Lift up your heads, O you gates; and be lifted up, you age-abiding doors, that the King of glory may come in.
8 Who is the King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.

.

O Sovereign LORD, cover my head in the day of battle. You are my strong defense[saving defense] , my impenetrable shield! –Ps 140:7, 28:7-8

Our Passover Lamb

May 1, 2014

1 Peter 1:18-19, 22-23 NLT … For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And the ransom He paid was not mere gold or silver. 19 It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God. …
… 22 You were cleansed from your sins when you obeyed the truth{through the Holy Spirit}, so now you must show sincere love to each other as brothers and sisters. Love each other deeply with all your heart. 23 For you have been born again{spiritually transformed, renewed, and set apart for His purpose}, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living word of God.

1 Corinthians 5:7 NLT … Christ, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed for us.
.

Christ, our spotless Passover Lamb is pure and holy. The ransom paid by His precious blood!
.
The Lord’s goal in giving us His Word is not to restrict or cramp our style, but to make us pure and holy. By obediently applying His word to our lives through the Holy Spirit we are transformed to become more and more like Jesus.

.
Isaiah 53:5 NKJV … He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.

Crown of Thorns

April 3, 2013


.

Hebrews 12:2-3      Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider Him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

 
Crowned with Thorns

No eye has seen
No ear has perceived
The beauty of the crown You bore for me. -1Co2:9-10;Is64:4;Jn19:2

Jesus
Broken vessel
Crowned with thorns
Pierced for our transgressions
A perfect sacrifice
Your life poured out in a scarlet flow. -Jn19:34;Is53:5,12; 1Pe1:18-19

The beauty of the crown
Is not what eyes can see
It’s the scarlet thread of love
that flows throughout eternity. -1Pe1:8;Ps 103:17-19

By His Wounds

April 6, 2012

A man of sorrows
Despised and forsaken of men
Acquainted with grief and sickness. -Isa 53:3

Pierced through for our transgressions
Crushed for our iniquities. -Isa 53:5

Oppressed and afflicted
A Lamb led to slaughter. -Isa 53:7

Redeemed
Not with silver or gold
But with the precious blood of Christ
Our Passover Lamb
The great I AM. -1Pe 1:18-19;1Cor 5:7

By His wounds we are healed. -Isa 53:5

Bow!

January 10, 2010

John 12:24-26
Verily, verily I say unto you, unless a corn of wheat falls to the ground
and dies, it remains alone, only a single seed. But if it dies it bears much  fruit. He that loves his life shall lose it; and he that hates his life in this  world shall keep it unto life eternal. If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there will also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will [my] Father honor.

Unless ‘it’ dies
Without blood on the corn
There is no life.

But if it dies it bears much fruit.
Alone you can do nothing! -Jn 15:5

BOW
Come before the King in surrender and humilty
Heed the cry of Jesus – ‘Follow me’
Do not conform to the pattern of this world
Present yourself, a living, holy sacrifice,
Pleasing to God. -Rom 12:1-2

Wherever I AM is
There the servant of Jesus will also be.

Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:
Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God
something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very
nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death — even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. -Phil 2:5-11

This is what the LORD says: “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my
footstool. Where is the house you will build for me? Where will my resting place be? Has not my hand made all these things, and so they came into being?” declares the LORD. “This is the one I esteem: he who is humble and contrite in spirit, and trembles at my word.” -Isa 66:1-2

BOW!
Tremble at His word
Serve the King
King Jesus!

Psalm 95:6-7
Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the LORD our Maker; For He is our God and we are the people of His pasture, the flock under His care.
