ETERNAL FROM EVERLASTING TO EVERLASTING

ETERNAL FROM EVERLASTING TO EVERLASTING


Wise Men Followed the Star all through Old Testament Times until they found Christ in a manger.

Job 14 v 7 There is hope for a tree:

If it is cut down, it will sprout again,

And its new shoots will not fail.Its roots may grow old in the ground,

And its stump die in the soil,

Yet at the scent of water, it will bud,

And put fourth shoots like a plant.


PREFACE
This is a vision, word, picture, song, that I received from God and
Was the start of what  became this  website.


WHO IS THIS  ?


I see a mighty rider riding through the desert on horseback, and in his right hand is a torch and a sword, behind him rides the host of heavens armies, nothing can stop him, nothing in heaven or in hell. He comes to proclaim liberty and freedom to the captives, he comes to open the eyes of the blind, to set the captive free. He comes to free from bondage and slavery, from oppression and fear, he is ready for battle, HE WILL defeat the enemy. He comes to release, to draw out, His name is Jesus.Who is this who lights the path for his people ? who is this who prepares the way ? who is he who clears a path and defeats the enemy ? . Who brings down kings from their thrones ? who brings down nations to their knees ?  Who is this that lightens the darkness ? who straightens the crooked ways ? who is this that brings down the haughty ? who is this that makes the valleys shout for joy and sing ? who brings joy to the heart ?Who is this that goes before us ? who brought us out of the darkness – into his light?  Who brought us out of our bondage ?  who is this that sets the captive to proclaim liberty, justice, mercy, who is this who defeats the enemy ? who is it that marches ahead of us through the desert ? Who goes ahead and beckons us on ? come follow me - follow me - His name is Jesus, King of Kings and Lord of Lords.


Psalms 119:105


INTRODUCTION



John 1:1 reads, In the beginning was God, and the Word (  Jesus  ) was with God .


( In the Beginning ? before anything was created ! ) The Trinity is not created, as if there would be anyone to create God, the trinity has always been and always will be, in the beginning of creation was the word and the word was with God. In Genesis 1:1, it speaks of God /Jesus creating  the heavens and the earth.


When the earth Was without form and void, when there was darkness upon the face Of the deep and the Spirit Of God moved ( or hovered - brooded } Over the face of the waters or deep. At this point we read , in verse Three, And God said, “ Let there be light “ and there was light, it Came to be. And God was pleased, He saw that the light was good and at this Moment He separated, ‘ The Light from the darkness ‘ And He called the light ‘ Day ‘ and the darkness He called night. And so ended that day. He separated us, He made US   Holy,  WE are children of the day, we are children of the light, we are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a Holy Nation, belonging to God, we are set apart, as Gods Children, made Holy and cleansed by the blood of the Lamb, ( The Passover lamb) . You  see ?  at the foundations of the earth the battle was fought and satan Was cast down to the earth. At the foundation of the earth Jesus was lifted High so that every eye shall see the salvation of our God, through Jesus at the Cross, we have life. Through His death we are born again, through His rising from death we can live in the resurrection life that He gives And we can be seated in heavenly places with Him. For even though He was holy, He became like us, He was separate from sinners and made  higher than the heavens. Hebrews 7:26, we are separated - A chosen people, Holy.


From the beginning of this creation to the ending of this creation ( as  we know it ) in the beginning of time ( as God created time ) , at the beginning,  when God created the heavens and the earth, from the rising of the sun to the going down of the sun, ( end of this creation ) He has been and always will be The Alpha and Omega. At the foundation of the earth, at the beginning of time the war began And was fought and the dragon was thrown down onto the very Earth And into the very lifes that God had created and loved into existence. And at the same time God in His love and foreknowledge knew those Who would come to Him . Our lifes are not some big mistake but we were born at the exact Location and at the exact time and into the very family that He planned ( In the beginning ) . Every day that we live, He has already gone before us , He has already planned each step and already has knowledge of every day and every breathe that we breath. He knew of us before the foundations of the earth and he knew us before we were even formed in our mothers womb, He watched over us with an intimate love and attention as we were being formed and  was pleased with what He saw. We were chosen before the world was formed , He has chosen us BEFORE the world was formed to be Holy and blameless  before him, in HIS love, he has predestined us to be ADOPTED as SONS though Jesus Christ to himself: Before we were formed in our mothers womb he knew us: In the beginning we did not know him, but he called us out of darkness, He is the Author of our faith. We did not earn our salvation, Jesus the Passover Lamb , saved us.

Is.44:24 says, I AM YHWH, your Redeemer and I have formed you From the womb, for I  AM YHWH, The One who makes all. Although He makes all and is in all, the world did’nt and does not recognize Him. But even so He is the same Jesus Christ yesterday, and to day, and for ever. Hebrews 13:8


8- Before Abraham was, I am (Jn.8:58)... this last "I am" of Jesus the Messiah have the scent of eternity and power... not "I was", but " I am"... I am the immutable one, but the author of all change and movement... Jesus is always eternally the same I am... "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever" (Heb.13:8). Time and time again we see the Trinity at work in the Old Testament,  God/Jesus and the Holy Spirit, working through the lifes of people.The Interchanging Trinity in the Old and New Testaments: At times we may see God, at other times Jesus, at other times The Holy Spirit or the trinity revealed .We see - { The Angel Of The Lord } mentioned time and time again, we see, Yahweh, Joshua, Jesus, ( saviour ) It was Jesus who freed us from our former lifes , Jesus who freed us, from our bondage in Egypt. Jesus who sets the captive ( prisoner free ) Jesus the Passover Lamb who freed us. By His Blood we are set free, by His Precious Blood we find mercy and forgiveness. Alpha and Omega: In the beginning we did not know him, but he called us out of darkness, he is the Author of our faith, we did not earn our salvation, Jesus the Passover Lamb , saved us. John 1:10  says,  although He, ( Jesus ) made the world , the world did Not recognize Him, as the saying goes, there are none so blind as those That cannot see. Jesus opens the eyes of the blind, those who were  in Darkness have their eyes opened for it is satan who blinds the minds Of unbelievers but it is Jesus who opens eyes to the revelation and Knowledge of a living God. It is Jesus who makes a way through the waters, who clears the path before us, it is Jesus who ( draws us out ), it is Jesus who drew out the people from Egypt, it is Jesus who was the light in the darkness, who led the people in the wilderness. It was Jesus who was the pillar of cloud ( strength ) by day .It is Jesus who set us free from slavery, it is Jesus who redeemed us, it is Jesus who sets the captive free, through his blood, ( the Passover Lamb ) we are saved: Jesus set us free from bondage , Jesus is the one who goes before his  Chosen people:  is the one who set free and went before the people in the wilderness and yes God and the Holy Spirit, three in one, yet three: THIS IS THE MESSAGE - Jesus was Alive, is Alive, and is alive forevermore.


He is The Alpha and Omega In the beginning was the word and the word became flesh: This is the alpha course, the beginning of a journey in which we will never stop learning.....The start of a journey through the wilderness. Why the wilderness ? We are set apart, in the wilderness we learn to listen to God, in the wilderness we will thirst for God, in the dry barren places we cannot go without water for long and where do we get water ? what water are we talking of ?  Omega ? The end of what ? The end of life as we know it ? the end of this creation ? And so we fix our eyes on Jesus who is the Author and the perfecter Of faith for it is He who endured The Cross and it is He who sat down At the right hand of God. Hebrews 12 v 2. Jesus was as much alive and at work in the old testament as he has been throughout all eternity, throughout the bible we see the demonstrations of the trinity at work intervening in the lifes of Kings Queens, the poor  and the rich, the weak and the strong, the meek and the proud, the godly and the ungodly , Jesus I believe was at work through all the Old Testament, he was with God always, through eternity, God, Jesus, The Holy Spirit, working, Creating , preparing, loving, tending, nurturing, caring. He is the one who breaks open the gates of iron, who shakes the earth, who sets us free, who releases the slave, who draws us out from our Egypt , our slavery.  He is the one who hardens hearts and who softens hearts, he is the one who takes us to the waters edge until we say " what now Lord, where do we go ? the enemy is behind us" He  is the one who brought us out of the darkness into his glorious light,  he brought us out of Egypt if you like, from our bondage and slavery and  he leads us through the waters, performing miracles. He leads us to the rock where we can drink, he leads us to the waters of Marah where we can find cleansing and the bitterness taken away, to the Elim Springs where we can know the refreshing of the waters. We can know how to be totally dependent on him and see his provision we can have the mountain top meeting with God through the veil, we can come in through the veil. We can walk through the wilderness knowing that our God - Jesus - The Holy Spirit, is leading the way. We can pick up snakes and scorpions,


When we look to Jesus, we can know that these tents, these temporary bodies have God - Jesus tabernacling within.And all the time as we look on.... We can look to Jesus leading the way through the wilderness to the promised land and yes we will see the giants, we will see the mountains, we will have to die of self and then on to the promised  land He is the one who defeats the enemy before us. We fight not by numbers or by our might or strength, the battle is the  Lords. In the name of Jesus we stand, by the power of his blood we  now claim this land, satan has no authority here, powers of darkness must flee, for Christ has the victory. It is a journey and the way is narrow, but we have our Lord leading to  be the light in the darkness, and we will see our enemy trodden down. It is The Lord who makes a way in the sea and a path in the mighty waters,  Isaiah 43:16   His way is through the sea, His path is through the great waters, He leads us on even though we cannot see Him we walk by faith not by sight. Psalms 77:19 He is Jesus King of Kings and Lord of Lords who is the express image of His Person, He sustains all things by His powerful word. Hebrews 1:3 He is ‘ The Face of The Lord ‘ and He shall be called the Prophet Of the highest, and shall go before the face of The Lord to prepare His ways, Luke 1:76 and He is before ALL things for by Him all Things consist. Colossians 1:17 who is the Head of the body, the Church, who is the Beginning  the firstborn from the dead. Colossians 1:18 He is the the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; Revelation 3:14  And the ‘ I Am ‘ , the Alpha and Omega, the beginning And the ending, Revelation 1:8  who was and is and is to come. Before anything was created the trinity existed, long before space or time as we know it existed the trinity was at work, God knew in his foreknowledge who would come to him, he knows his children. And they would become as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand in the desert, in other words, too many to count, here we begin to see Gods plan unfolding, we begin to see the spiritual warfare taking place as God clears a path, makes a way, ( where there is no way ) levels the mountains and fills the valleys. In the beginning ? the beginning of what ? there is no beginning or ending with the trinity ?


He is the voice of one crying in the wilderness to prepare the way for His coming, yes He walks before us in the wilderness and He prepares The way for us, but are we prepared to let Him in ? so that He can prepare hearts ? for He shall fill every valley and raise up the lowly and the destitute, Those who are lowly will be lifted up and every mountain and Hill shall be brought low, anything that exalts itself above the knowledge Of the Lord shall be brought low. Those who are proud and haughty shall Be brought low and the one who seats himself at the head of the table Shall find himself the least. The crooked ways shall be made straight and He shall bring light into every deceit and wrong doing and expose the Ways of darkness and He shall smooth those that have hard hearts that They shall bear fruit and we shall know the salvation of the Lord, saving Us from every situation and circumstance.   Isaiah 40:3-4 Before we were born he knew of us, he knew our ways, here in these chapters we see the plans of God unfolding, the long wilderness journey with God was about to take place. In these chapters we gain insight into the ways and plans that God had for these, ( a chosen people ) we see the journey of faith, of perseverence, of courage, boldness. We can apply these lessons to our walk with God, we can compare and associate our Christian lifes with those that have gone before us, we can take the word of God and say " Lord what are you saying to me " ? Jesus was very much alive and at work in the Old Testament, he has always been and always will be the Alpha and Omega. He is the light that we follow , he is the glory ( the cloud ) that we  follow in the dry places and in the dry places we constantly need to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Through this  book we will be comparing our Christian lifes with the wilderness journey, we will try to gain more insight into Jesus's working  through these chapters, the trinity will never be understand fully in words, but we can try to gain insight.

There are times when we might see God, Jesus, The Holy Spirit, working as one or we might see them working as three, united in one purpose, working in love, interceding in the lifes of ordinary people, drawing people, saying, " follow me " We are separated, made Holy, God/Jesus was about to separate the people from the darkness of Egypt/the world and bring them out of the mines, out of the earth if you like, the sea was about to be parted/separated to make way for Gods purposes. He is the great light that exposed the darkness, and those that dwelt in the shadow of death have seen the light. Isaiah 9:2  for unto us a Child is born and unto us a Son is given who is Called Jesus. Before we are saved The Holy Spirit begins speaking into our hearts, We are in the world but not of the world, God hears our groans and Steps down to save us. Though we are walking in darkness, He brings Light into our world ( life ) and begins to show us something of Himself. As we are searching so God has already in His foreknowledge answered Our longings and  heart felt cries, as we respond to Him so He calls back. He brings us out of that  darkness and puts our feet upon a Rock. In our hearts a child is born, Christ is being formed in us. Jesus the Passover Lamb is my strength and my song in times of trouble, he hears my cries and saves me.  In Exodus Chapter 3:7 the scripture reads, And the (Lord) said, I AM the God of your father, the God of Abraham, The God of Isaac, and The God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God. v 7: And The ( Lord ) said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters and oppessors: for I know their sorrows and sufferings and trials. v8: And I have come down to deliver them out of the hand and power of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land to a land of good and large,  a land flowing with milk and honey { a land of plenty}
