I Know My Redeemer Lives

Verse One
Who taught the sun where to stand in the morning?
Who told the ocean you can roll out this far
Who show the moon where to hide till evening?
Whose works alone can catch the falling stars…?

I know my Redeemer lives
I know my Redeemer lives…
All creations testifies
This life within me cries
I know my Redeemer lives

Prayer and Enthusiasm Brings Favorable Results (Nehemiah: Chapter 2-4)

"At last the wall was completed to half it's height around the entire city, for the people had worked with enthusiasm" Nehemiah 4:6

The story in Nehemiah chapter 2-4 took place after the Israelites had returned to Judah but were not making progress because they couldn't pray to God; they had no temple were they could make sacrifices unto God because the temple had be destroyed and the walls of Jerusalem had fallen. They couldn't build back the wall.

They were sad, lived in anguish though in their own towns. The only way out for them is to seek God's face, but how when they don't have a temple were they will pray and make sacrifices unto God. So they needed to urgently rebuild the temple and even the walls of the city to save them from enemies.

Duties of a Mediator

God is not a mortal like me, so I cannot argue with Him or take Him to trial. If only there were a mediator between us, someone who could bring us together. The mediator could make God stop beating me, and I would no longer live in terror of His punishment. Then I could speak to Him without fear, but I cannot do that in my own strength?. Job 9:32-35

Yes we have that mediator now, He came into this sinful world in form of flesh to die for our sins so that He can intercede on our behalf to God Almighty, so that unlike Job complaining about not having a mediator we do, so you see from Jobs speech in Job 9: 32-35 what the functions of a mediator are:

Living an ungodly Life

The same happens to all those who forget God, the hopes of the godless evaporate. Their confidence hangs by a thread. They are leaning on a spider’s web. They cling to their home for security, but it won’t last.

They try to hold it tight, but it will not endure. The godless seem like a lush plant growing in the sunshine, it’s branches spreading across the garden. It’s roots grow down through a pile of stones; it takes hold on a bed of rocks.

But when it is uprooted, it’s as though it never existed! That’s the end of it’s life and others spring up from the earth to replace it. But look, God will not reject a person of integrity, nor will he lend a hand to the wicked.

The Wicked Shall be Destroyed (Psalm 52)

Many people boasts of their wicked acts, you may often hear some people saying, “you don’t know me, I am very bad, I can do this and do that”. Some others don’t bother saying it, but their action proves it, they live in wickedness to their own destruction. Lying is deceptive and destructive.

Every evil and wicked act will not go unpunished, but the righteous shall be rewarded; hear what God says about the wicked in the book of Psalm chapter 52.

“Why do you boast about your crimes, great warrior? Don’t you realize God’s justice continues forever? All day long you plot destruction. Your tongue cuts like a sharp razor; you’re an expert at telling lies. You love evil more than good and lies more than truth. You love to destroy others with your words, you liar!

What is True Repentance?

Repentance is when you are sorry for something you have done. In this year, if we must recover everything which we had lost as individuals, ministers, church, business owners, career people, we must understand that one of the major steps that is needed to recover all is true repentance.

Ezra 9: 1-5 "Now when these things were done, the princes came to me, saying, The people of Israel, and the priests, and Levites, have not separated themselves from the people of the lands, doing according to their abominations, even of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians and the Amorites. For they have taken for themselves and their sons: so that the holy seed have mingled themselves with the people of those lands: yea, the hand of the princes and rulers hath been chief in this trespass. And when I heard this thing, I rent my garment and my mantle, and plucked off the hair of my head and of my beard, and sat down astonished. Then were assembled unto me everyone that trembled at the words of the God of Israel, because of the transgression of those that had been carried away; and I sat astonished until the evening sacrifice. And at the evening sacrifice I arose up from my heaviness; and having rent my garment and my mantle, I fell upon my knees, and spread out my hands unto the Lord my God"
