His Love Never Fails or Ends!

July 8, 2017

The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases
His mercies never come to an endLam 3:22
They are new every morning; New every morning
Great is Your faithfulness, O LORD
Great is Your faithfulness!Lam 3:23

1 Corinthians 13:8, 13 … Love never fails{never ends}. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. …
… 13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

From NetBible 1Cor 13:8,13

  • fails[1601] = perish, fall away, end
  • remain[3306] = abide, continue, endure => It’s interesting to note the strongs word for remain in the above  scripture is the verb form of the words for “many mansions” found in Jn 14:2.

.

Jesus has gone ahead to prepare a place
For God’s children
A permanent dwelling place in the Father’s house
Filled with His unfailing, never ending love!

.

John 14:1-6 … “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
5 Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?”
6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

From NetBible Jn 14:2

  • many mansions[3438] = a staying/permanent, abiding, dwelling, abode *from Greek[3306] = residence
    * Jn 15:4 Abide[3306] in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. => It’s interesting to note the strongs word for abide in the above Jn 15 scripture is the verb form of the words for “many mansions” found in Jn 14.
  • * Jesus is going ahead of believers to prepare a place for them, a permanent dwelling place in the Father’s house

Whoever is wise, let him heed these things{take all this to heart} and consider the great love{and mercies} of the LORD. -Ps107:43

Tabernacle(s) and Mansion(s)

John 14:1-6“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”

From NetBible Jn 14:2

  • many mansions[3438] = a staying/permanent, abiding, dwelling, abode *from Greek[3306] = residence
    * Jn 15:4 Abide[3306] in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. => It’s interesting to note the strongs word for abide in the above Jn 15 scripture is the verb form of the words for “many mansions” found in Jn 14.
  • * Jesus is going ahead of believers to prepare a place for them, a permanent dwelling place in the Father’s house

Notice that these mansions are plural – more than one. And they are permanent! This scripture looks ahead to the eternal place where Jesus will receive each of His children – the heavenly tabernacle – the New Jerusalem.

Revelation 21:22But I saw no temple in it(the New Jerusalem), for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our physical body(temple) is perishing, yet the inward person is being renewed day by day. 17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, 18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

How Lovely – The Dwelling Places of the Lord

July 5, 2017

Psalm 84:1 How lovely are Your dwelling places(tabernacles), O LORD of hosts!

From NetBible Ps 84:1

  • * The psalmist expresses his desire to be in God’s presence in the Jerusalem temple, for the Lord is the protector of his people.
  • dwelling places[04908] = tabernacles, habitation, a residence (including a shepherd’s hut)

Interesting that these dwelling places, tabernacles of the Lord are plural – more than one. These dwelling places seem to be on earth, like the temple in Jerusalem.

John 1:14  … And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

From NetBible Jn 1:14

  • dwelt[4637] = to fix one’s tabernacle, have one’s tabernacle, abide (or live) in
    a tabernacle (or tent)
  • The verb used here may imply that the Shekinah glory that once was found in the OT tabernacle has taken up residence in the person of Jesus.

Interesting how Jesus becoming flesh and dwelling among us is related to the tabernacle; His body a dwelling place, a tabernacle.

Our christian bodies are temple(s) where the Spirit of God dwells. Jesus used this same word temple, when He spoke of destroying it and raising it up in three days – it has a double meaning. Jesus was referring to the temple of His body, but it also applied to the OT temple/tabernacle. Interesting that it is also used to describe the future new Jerusalem – the final city of God where the whole body of Christ is joined to dwell. The Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple!

1 Corinthians 3:16Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?

John 2:19-21Jesus answered and said to them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. 20 The Jews then said, “It took forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days? 21 But He was speaking of the temple of His body.

Revelation 21:1-5, 22 … Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea.2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband.3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle[4633] of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them,4 and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.” 5 And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He *said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.” …
… 22 I saw no temple[3485] in it, for the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.

From NetBible Rev 21:3

  • tabernacle[4633] = tent, tabernacle, (made of green boughs, or skins or other materials)
    * of that well known movable temple of God after the pattern of which the OT temple at Jerusalem was built

.
From NetBible 1Cor 3:16, Jn 2:21 , Rev 21:22

  • temple[3485] = used of the temple at Jerusalem, but only of the sacred edifice (or sanctuary) itself, consisting of the Holy place and the Holy of Holies
    * Also a metaphor for the spiritual temple consisting of the saints of all ages joined together by and in Christ

Jesus = True Bread

March 2, 2016

John 6:32-35 NASB … Jesus then said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread out of heaven, but it is My Father who gives you the true bread out of heaven. 33 For the bread of God is that which comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world.” 34 Then they said to Him, “Lord, always give us this bread.”

35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.

From NetBible Jn 6:32

  • true[228] = *that which has not only the name and resemblance, but the real nature corresponding to the name, in every respect corresponding to the idea signified by the name, real, true genuine
    * opposite to what is fictitious, counterfeit, imaginary, simulated or pretended=>From [227] = loving the truth, speaking the truth, truthful

Jesus the Bread of Life
True bread from heaven
The One and Only who satisfies
Full of grace and truth
The Word made flesh –
Jn 1:14
The Living Bread –Jn 6:51
The Imperishable Seed –1Pe 1:23
The Living Word

Stands forever and never dies.Is 40:8

John 6:53-55,63 NASB … So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves. 54 He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. 55 For My flesh is true food, and My blood is true drink. 56 He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.

63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life. 

True Food = Jesus flesh/body, Words spoken
True Drink = Jesus blood, His life giving Spirit

True Bread must be eaten{digested/applied}
With True Drink{the Holy Spirit}.

Why do you spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And let your soul delight itself in abundance{richest, finest food=true bread}. –Is 55:2

Matthew 4:4 NASB … But He answered and said, It is written, ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.’

3 Be to me a rock of habitation[04583]{dwelling , habitation, refuge} to which I may continually come;
You have given commandment to save me,
For You are my rock and my fortress.

John 14:2-3 NKJV … In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so , I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.

Many Mansions

January 2, 2014

John 14:2In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so , I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

From NetBible Jn 14:2

  • mansions[3438] = dwelling place, abode
    * to make an (one’s) abode
    * metaph. of the God the Holy Spirit indwelling believers
    *from Greek[3306] = residence

John 15:4-5Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.

From NetBible Jn 15:4

John 14:6,23-24Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. … Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me”.

    * to make an (one’s) abode

****

==> It’s interesting to note the strongs word for abide in the above Jn 15 scripture is the verb form of the words for “many mansions” and “home” found in Jn 14.

==> In Rev 21, the residence noun and verb are different from the above – yet the same idea is present – of  the Father and Son making a home – this time it’s brand new!

.

Revelation 21:1-5 … Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea.2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband.3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them,4 and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.”

5 And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He *said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.”
