JESUS OUR SUBSTITUTE

 

                          JESUS OUR SUBSTITUTE

Jesus, stood with dignity in the courts of evil men. His accusers judged Him death Him a death sentence He had had not earned; Jesus’ posture   as He was accused and condemned revealed that He willingly died for the sake of all. The people who judged Jesus failed to recognize that the One they accused and condemned was actually their Judge.  Jesus was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering. He was not a victim, but surrendered Himself willing to endure a death He did not deserve.

Jesus’ accomplishment was amazing for those who accept Him for salvation. The Son of God was judged guilty, although He was innocent. Thank God, that Jesus took our place, every believer stands before God, and though guilty, is declared innocent.

Jesus was our substitute; He did this because He loves us. For He hath made him to STAND in for us who knew so sin that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him. Jesus died for all.

People who does not recognize God’s and fail to turn to Jesus as our substitute must bear the weight of their down judgment. There are only two ways that sin’s deserved penalty can be paid. Jesus is the only acceptable sacrifice for sin.

Jesus was betrayed by Judas, denied by Peter, and deserted by His own disciples. The religious leaders whom God charged to oversee the faith of His people did not recognize the Messiah and opposed Him. Pilate believed Jesus was innocent and still turned Him  over for crucifixion.  Not a one stood on the side of the truth. Jesus endured arrest, false accusations, and unjust treatments to redeemed mankind.  He willingly suffered for the entire world. A choice must be made you are either for Him or against Him.  The choice bears eternal consequences. Be blessed Dr. Annie Eskridge 4/16/22

Merry Christmas

 Merry Christmas to all and enjoy celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.

Overcomer

 Be of good courage, and He shall strength your heart, all you who hope in the Lord.- Psalm 31:24

Overcoming  obstacles fall into three categories: sin, the world, and the devil. My flesh was an obstacle; temptations of the world was an obstacle finally the devil is always an obstacle.  It is left up to me as to who I would serve. Praise God! for everything that I have faced, God has enabled me to be a Victorious overcomers.

I had to reinforce my focus on God to be where I am today. I had to focus on God's Holy Word during my illness. It was so important for me to  make confession as to what God Word said about illness.  By Jesus striped I had already been healed over 2,000 years ago when Jesus died on the Cross.

The more I thought about it. Jesus can heal all manners of diseases.  This means all things and nothing is left out.  Even today I still have to thank God for healing and delivering me. I am free to talk to God on a daily basis. I am His Child and we are free to speak to Our Heavenly Father on a daily basis. 

We all need to release out challenges to God, so He can help us. It is important for all us to put them completely in God's Hands and stop carrying them with us.  Revelation 21:7 let us know we are called to be overcomers and not defeaters. Ask yourself, are you an overcomer or a defeaters? God bless you and be blessed. Mother Dr. Annie Eskridge areskridge6840@att.net

Calling God my Father

 It is an awesome priviledge. Yet, what is God like a Father?

1. God desires to have a close, personal relationship with  you [Is 49:15,16].

God isn't a distant father. Rather, He wants to reveal His presence to you.  He wants to be close to you.  God loves you enough that He meets with you whenever you call upon Him.  Whether you want companionship, meet some wisdom, yearn for a sense of belonging, or just want someone to talk to- God is always available to you.

2. God desire to communicated with you[Jer 33:3;Matt 6:6].

the only way you are truly going to embrace God as your Father is if you are open and honest with Him.  You must open your heart to Him and invite Him into situation.  He wants to communicate with you and lead you in the way you should go.  He wants to reveal Himself to you and to you and share His wisdom with you. 

3.  God loves you unconditional [See Romans 5:8;1 John 3:1]. God is wise and knows everything about you.  There is nothing you have to do to earn.

It is good to understand that God is Our Heavenly Father.  We must be obedient to God's Word and stay focused on Him.

4. God already knows all of your needs before you ask Him.

5. God will always be with you [Deut 31:6].

6. God is a Father who disciplines [Heb 12:5-10}.

7. God holds you accountable for your life. We are accountable to God for all things.

8. God will always help you to do the right thing. We must study God's Word and then be obedient to His Word. Be blessed. Dr.Annie R. Eskridge areskridge6840@att.net

Transformation

 Romans 12:2...And do not be conformed to this word,but be transformed by the renewing of your mind that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

We must be conformed or molded or transformed that is changed by renewing our mind with the things of God.  If we are to assist anyone we must have a transformed mind or a renewed mind.  The transformation does not happen overnight.  Many of us think that once our life is transformed, then our mind will be renewed.  It is a different way. When our mind is changed we will be transformed and our life will follow.

Our transformation is a continuous process.  we are conformed into into the image of God, as spend intimate fellowship with Him.  "but we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord"(2Cor 3:18nkjv). Beholding the glory of the Lord, all believers of Jesus Christ are transformed into the image of the True and Living God.

True Christians go through various stages of glory as they study the Word of God. This applies to sanctified Christians, they have been transformed after becoming a Christian and studying God's word daily.

 The transformation must be planted in our mind so we can assist others when it is needed as well as take care of ourselves. It's God who transform us so we will be able to avoid most worldly customs covetous, stubborn and arrogant. As we allow the Holy Spirit to work in us, we are truly transformed and can successfully assist our husband.  it is imperative to understand that our mind is renewed with the Word of God.

Spiritual transformation starts in the mind and heart.  A mind dedicated to God's truth will produce a life that can stand the test of time.  If your mind is changed, you will changed. Feed it with the Word of God.  When you sin, confess and repent immediately.  A changed mind will be different and more Christ like than ordinary people in thed world.

we must meditate on God's truth and letting the Holy Spirit guided and shape our thoughts and behaviors.  It has truly been a blessings to share with others in this newsletter.  May God's blessings rest upon all the clergy and their wives.

Destroy due to lack of knowledge

Hosea 4:6 NKJV  tells us..."My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.  Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children."

Not knowing the Word of God is what has destroyed the lives of many Saints.  It is sad that people's lives have been affected just because they do not know their rights as a Child of God. Ephesians 4:11-12 let us know that...And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ. It is our responsibility to know the Word of God, so we can live a victorious overcoming life. Be blessed! areskridge6840@att.net.  Dr. Annie R. Eskridge
