Our Heavenly Portion"And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall be in bitterness for Him, as one is in bitterness for his first born." -- Zech. 12: 10.
Jesus is our great Messiah! He is "God's Greatest Gift Given to Mankind!" Where is our Great Deliverer? Have we missed seeing Him?! We just have to look inside our hearts to find Him, as Jesus dwells within everyone's earthly heart!
*Jesus is............ Our Heavenly Portion!
God gives a part of His Innermost Self to dwell within our innermost selves. God breathes a part of His Innermost Life into His creation; and that part of God's Life is Messiah!
Something beautiful died within Adam and Eve when they disobeyed God; and something beautiful dies within us when we disobey God. When we break God's laws, we slay our Heavenly Portion. Right here within our very own earthly hearts, Jesus came, and we rose up against Him and slew Him! All humanity is guilty of crucifying Jesus within their hearts!
........ Oh, Jesus! Oh, Jesus! I should have died when I broke God's law, but You, who knew no sin, took upon yourself my sinful flesh. You became my flesh and You died in my place so that I might yet live and behold God's salvation being fulfilled within my heart.
You came unto, Your own
Your own received You not!
Such apart of us, You were
Such apart of us You want to be!
All of mankind has cried......
Set Barabbas Free!
Crucify God's perfectness within our hearts
Set our selfish natures free!
We've all sinned......
We've all eaten from the wrong tree!
......."All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all." -- Isaiah 53:6
......"But 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." -- Isaiah 53: 5
......"Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief. When You make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days, And the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand. He shall see the travail of His soul, and be satisfied. By His knowledge My righteous servant shall justify many, For He shall bear their iniquities." -- Isaiah 53: 10, 11
.... And some will say to Him, "What are these wounds in Your hands? Then He will answer, "Those with which I was wounded in the house of My friends." Zachariah 13: 6
* - Born to be King over all the earth.
Born in a manger, such a lowly birth
Descending into earth's lowest parts
Reaching down into man's corrupted hearts.
* - Freeing man from the bondage of fear
Healing the blind, causing the deaf to hear
Everyone's heart created to be His throne
No greater light has ever shown.
* - God's Heavenly Adam, God's Incorruptible!
His eternal Life giving Blood, Un-Surpassible!
To be born once of the earthly is not enough
To be born again of the Heavenly we must!
* _ Oh, what love! Tis beyond measure!
My hearts King, My greatest treasure!
He sets it on fire, Oh, how it glows!
Here in my heart, God's Kingdom grows
* - Here in my heart comes the Great Prince Of Peace!
Here in my heart God's Kingdom must increase!
Why in the darkness, do some still hide?
When the great Messiah dwells inside!
