The good news of the Gospel

Posted by appolus on July 9, 2013

How many times brothers and sisters have we heard about sharing the good news? Do you share the good news? What is the good news? If you had one minute or less to share with someone the good news, what would share? Have you meditated on this?

In Luke chapter 3 we see that Jesus is Baptized and that the Holy Spirit comes down and God speaks from heaven. He then enters the temple and stands up and pronounces the beginning of His ministry, quoting from Isaiah 61, He pronounces the good news! Jesus tells us that He has come to heal the brokenhearted! He has come to proclaim liberty to the captives, and to those who are in chains He has come to loose them of those chains. He has come to say that today, right now, is the time to come to the Lord. He tells us that there is a coming judgement but that those who seek Him will find Him and find comfort and joy and a sweet release from great sadness. In fact He says that from the ashes of your life He will raise you up again and create great beauty out of those very ashes. He will anoint your head with oil, meaning that He will baptize you in the Holy Spirit and you will run and not grow weary, you will walk and not faint, in fact you will rise up with wings as eagles and soar.

He will replace great sadness with great joy and from an ever flowing fountain that He will place in the deepest parts of your heart you shall be like a well watered tree that is planted by a river. You will be called trees of righteousness because that will be the fruit of He that dwells in the deepest parts of you. And the ruins of your life shall be rebuilt and that which was formerly desolate, perhaps even generations of desolation, shall be restored to what is should always have been.

You shall be clothed with garments of salvation and covered with robes of righteousness. You shall be as a bride who adorns herself with jewels for her husband. And just like a well watered garden, all of these things that the Lord plants deep inside you will spring forth in due season and you will glorify God before the whole world.

Now brothers and sisters, I don’t know about you, but that is good news, that is the good news of the Gospel. This is the message that the Lord brought to the peoples of earth with outstretched arms. And with those outstretched arms He beckons them ” come unto me.” And why does He reach out His arms to the world with this message? “For God so loved the world.” Oh brothers and sisters, can you rest awhile and simply consider those words. For in those words is everything, everything that ever was or ever shall be. Life has sprung forth from those words. The worlds and the heavens above and all of creation here on earth springs forth from that truth. ” For God so loved the world.” Have you shared that love , that truth, that message, that good news recently with those that He loved so much that He would sacrifice His precious Son? Find someone today and tell them the good news.

Remnant meetings coming up

Posted by appolus on April 10, 2013

Started a new page on Facebook, just simply called The remnant. We are going to be holding some meetings in July in a church I consider my home church even although I have only been there a handful of times 🙂 We have a sister in the Lord coming over from Scotland to lead worship and you can hear her here at the new page http://www.facebook.com/acalltotheremnant. Please go there and click like if you want to get the details of the upcoming meetings. If you have a strong desire to experience the presence of God in His glory and His majesty and His awesome reverence, then perhaps you may want to join us as we seek nothing more than His presence. God is indeed drawing out a hungry and a thirsty people, a people for such a time as this. A people who have an overwhelming desire for nothing more than Him , and who have been ruined for this world.

How to stand in the coming storm.

Posted by appolus on November 29, 2012

Hi saints, many who have eyes to see can see a storm coming. Indeed the skies have already began to darken and the first bands have already arrived, birth pangs if you like. Slowly but surely Christendom is being surrounded by her enemies. How then shall God’s people stand in that day? How will you stand? Have you asked yourself that question? Will you truly have faith in the living God? Will you stand fast in that day?

The Spirit of Glory!!!

Posted by appolus on October 19, 2012

But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.(1Pe 4:13,14)

Brothers and sisters, I want you to notice the above scripture, especially the highlighted portion. Can you see what the Holy Spirit is saying? He specifically talks about the ” spirit of glory.” What is this spirit of glory that ” shall be revealed?” Obviously the context of 1Peter is suffering, For those who can rejoice in the midst of suffering there is a specific kind of glory revealed. Just like the refining fires reveals the gold that lies within the rock, then the refining fire reveals the gold that lies within the saint as it burns away the rock and the dross and we are left with pure gold. We see in Habakkak, in the midst of terrible suffering and judgement this scripture “For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.” (Hab 2:14)

Here is love, vast as the ocean!

Posted by appolus on October 13, 2012

Oh the glory saints, the glory of God’s love vast as the ocean. I came across this version today in Welsh

I cant speak Welsh, but my spirit witnesses with this and soars to think of this and makes me think of the glory of God and why they could not get them to leave prayer meetings in the Welsh revival. Its the presence of God, it’s the majesty and the glory and the holiness. Its the beauty of Holiness. Oh for the days saints when we come to dwell forever in this majesty. This is why Paul can count all things as rubbish. To be found in Him, to know Him, to rest in the excellency of the knowledge of our Jesus. Oh that that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, that my spirit would soar in glorious majesty and be oblivious to my circumstance but only be found in Him. I would love to be so lost in Him that when they come and look for me I cannot be found, only Jesus, only Jesus, all for Jesus…………..bro Frank

I want to be so lost in you
And have my heart be pure and true
That when they come and look for me
It’s Christ alone that they shall see

Look into the depths of me
Is it Christ my Lord you see?
Walk with me along the way
Have you walked with Christ today?

Listen to me share my heart
Do you wanna be a part?
Of Christ the Lord my risen King
And to His throne your treasures bring

When I’m caught up in the waves
Can you see the Christ that saves?
When all the world has turned on me
Is it Christ that they shall see?

When it’s time for me to die
Will I raise my hands on high?
And sing aloud with all my might
Of Christ my King, a glorious sight

The role of the Remnant church in the last days

Posted by appolus on September 26, 2012

The Remnant’s role has changed down through the centuries, but always at her core she has been called to be a witness, an eye-witness to Gods glory. This is the essential heartbeat of Gods Remnant bride and always will be. In this role she has been used as a sanctuary, the sanctuary, the Holy of Holy’s. She is a tabernacle in the wilderness, she is Gods temple here on earth. She is a place for the weary and the lost and forsaken. At the same time she has always been despised by the religious spirit. These are people who confess God with their mouths but who have not received God’s glory, who have never encountered the glory of the living God. In these last days God has a special role for His Remnant people and of course this will only increase the hatred by those of the religious spirit. God says in His word through His prophet Zechariah that ” In that last day a fountain shall be opened up for the house of David,” and God Himself says again through the prophet that ( speaking of Christendom) “Two thirds in it shall be cut off and die. But one-third shall be left in it. I will bring the one-third through the fire, I will refine them as silver is refined and test them as gold is tested. They will call on my name and I will answer them. I will say ” This is my people.” (Zec 13:8-9)

The presence of God and the glory of the Psalms

Posted by appolus on August 21, 2012

Hi saints, if you have been coming to this site for any length of time you will know that I have two passions. One is the presence and the glory of God, and the other is poetry which I write when I feel moved of the Lord. I have just published a book called ” A poem for every Psalm” which combines these passions. The first part of the book is every Psalm followed by a poem the Lord gave me and asked me to write. The second part of the book speaks to the presence of the Lord . You can find this book here………….  https://www.createspace.com/3900708

Can also be found at……… www.amazon.com

Who Is This Jesus?

Posted by appolus on February 28, 2008

“Our Saviors love would render the deepest ocean to but a single tear from the Masters eye. The sun that blazes brilliantly in the sky, but a spark compared to our Lords burning passion. The universe and all others combined, smaller than the smallest chamber of His heart. This is the God we serve; this is the Jesus of the Gospels; this is Jesus, God amongst us.” Read the rest of this entry »

One Flesh in the Temple

Posted by appolus on February 21, 2008

In the Old Testament, God poured out fire from heaven and we were touched by His presence. Two thousand years ago, He sent an all consuming fire to walk the earth. And although our Lord Jesus returned to His rightful place at the right hand of our Heavenly Father, the fire of our life came and dwelt in the very midst of our new hearts Read the rest of this entry »
