God Saves

Jesus is God. When Jesus calls Himself the “Son of God” He is telling us He is the exact representation of God. Jesus left His heavenly home, took on humanity, to walk among us and lead us to Him and to our rightful home with Him. From the very beginning God’s plan included walking among His people. Jesus was there in the beginning, and He will be there at the end when He rides in on a white horse with “King of kings” and “Lord of lords” (two of the names of God used in the Old Testament) written on His thigh.

Jesus is the fulfillment of all the names of God. Jesus is the fulfillment of all the laws of God. Jesus is the fulfillment of all the attributes of God. The plan since before the formation of the earth was always Jesus.

Through Jesus every promise God has ever made comes to pass.
Through Jesus everything we were created to become flourishes.
You cannot have God without Jesus because He is God and eventually everyone will know it.

Philippians 2:9-11

“For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

Meditations

Because of Jesus, we are not left to wonder what God is like. Jesus is the exact imprint of God’s nature.

Repent of neglecting the teachings of Jesus.
Pray and ask Jesus to reveal to you where He is able and willing to do more for you than you have the faith to ask for.
Listen and think about Jesus and all that He has done for you.
Meditate and imagine standing in front of Jesus. Ask Him what He would like you to give to Him. Imagine yourself giving it to Him. Then ask Jesus what He would like to give back to you. Imagine yourself receiving it from Him.

Day Thirty-Nine: Yahweh M’Kaddesh

The Lord Sanctifies

M’kaddesh translated in English conveys being set apart and consecrated, to be prepared and made holy. It also implies a process of being more and more known and understood.

God is holy and it is not enough for Him to be holy and separated from us. He does what we cannot do on our own. He makes us holy too so that we can be with Him. It is not just a position or a relationship to holiness that M’kaddesh speaks to, but instead a participation in His divine nature through His works.

We don’t deserve to be holy, but through Christ’s atonement we are prepared, set apart and consecrated to participate in the holiness of Christ. !

Colossians 1:22

“But now he has reconciled you by Christ's physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation.”

Meditations

Where are you not allowing God, revealed to us as Yahweh M’Kaddesh, to sanctify you and make you holy?

Repent of choosing sin over Yahweh M’Kaddesh’s will to sanctify you and make you holy.
Pray and surrender the places you are struggling with sin to Yahweh M’Kaddesh and ask Him to sanctify you in these areas.
Listen and allow the Holy Spirit to show you places you don’t even know are there that need the sanctifying work of Yahweh M’Kaddesh.
Meditate and imagine Yahweh M’Kaddesh showing you how things could be if you would allow Him to work inside you to sanctify places in your heart or your life.
