The ministry of Condemnation

Posted by appolus on June 4, 2015

2Co 3:9 For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more does the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.

The ministry of condemnation. That is quite a phrase is it not? This ministry that Paul is talking about is the ministry of Moses under the Old Covenant. Yes it had a glory, one that was fading away and veiled. Those who have not experienced the new birth will labor under this ministry of condemnation, their hearts veiled to the glory of the risen God through Jesus our Lord.

Now, if you are walking in condemnation, it makes sense that you will share what you know. You will share the condemnation that you yourself labor under. Your words will bring death for the letter killeth but the Spirit gives life. The Spirit of God that dwells in us who know Jesus and have been born from above brings life to the hearers. The Scriptures tells us that” if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.” So it really all comes down to whether one has the Spirit of God in them or not.

Would you crawl on your hands and knees for God?

Posted by appolus on December 4, 2013

The scene set in 1 Sam 14 is quite a desperate one and serves well to highlight the difference between the religious man and the Spiritual man. The Philistines are encamped in great numbers on the high ground in this scene. They are multitude in number as opposed to Saul’s 600. Now this is far from a Gideon story. Saul’s ranks had been whittled down but not by God. And Saul is a man who has been rebuked by the prophet Samuel and so we can see, as we watch what Saul does, how the religious, those of the flesh, operate without the direction of the Holy Spirit. Even Ichabod’s brother is in their ranks ( the presence of God has departed)

Now it is interesting that while Saul is giving instructions to his troops “Cursed is the man that eats food until evening, so that I may be avenged on my enemies. So none of the people tasted any food,” Jonathon , the man of God, is already gone. You see Saul is afraid and fretting over what he sees as his enemies and how he can be avenged, we hear nothing about God from him. The religious man takes things personally and seeks to avenge himself on his enemies and he must try to work out all the details himself since he cannot converse with God. Now Jonathon on the other hand, so full of the Holy Spirit, decides to go to the enemy. He has a simple faith in God. He is so trusting that while all the other men are listening to instructions from religious men on how to gain victory, Jonathon is on the move. He is headed towards the enemy.

Love Eternally

Posted by appolus on December 29, 2011

The eternal love of God is without limit. Oh the beauty of such a love for such a one as me. Have you tasted of this love? Have you closed your eyes and reached out and grasped a piece of eternity? Have you experienced something of the vastness of God? He wants to be known. He wants us to know the breadth and the length and the depth of His love. To know that which passes knowledge cannot be learned, its a revelation, an illumination by the Spirit of God. That we, so small and so frail and so insignificant, can be filled by something so vast that it renders the word vast obsolete. Its other-worldly words we need. This is the riches of His glory. Come all ye men, paupers and kings, all paupers and know the riches of His glory. He has called you to this.

Oh love without ending
As vast as the sea
Oh mercy divine
Forever it will be

Oh infinite grace
It has no end
Eternal redemption
The heavens you’ll rend

And all these flow down
From a mountain so high
That it reaches the heavens
And bursts through the sky

When I survey
The heavens above
I’m awed by the vastness
I’m awed by your love

One day i’ll stand
On eternities shore
How vast is your love?
I’ll guess no more

Only then I’ll know
How vast is the sea
Only then I’ll know
Love eternally
