Christ abideth for ever!

"...the Lord said...", and  "...speak to the children of Israel..." are two interesting phrases which signifies winds of  change, and that God was about to do something new.

Whenever God visited and spoke in this manner, it was life changing; a new promise/ covenant would be enabled, and the people would shift and focus on the new declarations.  Any person who would not change, but continue drinking the old wine would miss it. Each time God visited Abraham,  he entered into a new covenant with him, one  that would superceed the old, that He also did with Adam, Cain, Noah, Isaac and Jacob, and Moses also and the prophets. Each time he visited them He would improve the covenant, founded upon better promises. The event were progressive. There no believer who wants to be caught up holding to old promises, covenants or past anointing. Imagine what Israel would have lost if he had continued with his old name Jacob? He would still be a supplanter. Why are you Jabez? Because my mother called me Jabez. It is time for change folks; and Jesus has brought us to that river of living waters.

He said, "Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life" John 4:13-14.

It’s only in Jesus, that God provided that solution. Past covenants never made them perfect, and will not help you even today. They without us "should not be made perfect" Hebrews 11:40. That they were looking for is made manifest in Christ.

"God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they" Hebrews 1:1-4.

In these last days, yes God is speaking, but only by his Son, whom he hath appointed, and likewise speaks to us not by the letter, but by his Spirit. God is happy with his work, nothing is to be added or subtracted from what Jesus has already said and done for us. No more new promises, no more new covenants or hearing of God’s voice, but as signified by "a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him" Luke 9:3. So what I can also say is hear ye him indeed.

The mystery of the kingdom of God

And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them, Mark 4:11-12 KJV.
The secret of the kingdom of God is given to you who look and perceive, listen and understand, you such as have teachable hearts which can easily be converted towards the way of salvation.
But the unbelievers are not so, they’re spiritually blind, they see, but perceive not; they hear but do not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them. Many is  because, instead of responding to the gospel in faith, they were rejecting it, and are such as would not receive further truth.
Now listen my friend, Jesus said, "If anyone has ears to hear, let him listen." And he said to them, "Pay at…

You need deliverance?

Jesus and his disciples arrived in the country of the Gerasenes, 
And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him, Mark 5:2-4.
His demonic strength kept anyone from being able to bind or team him, but by night and day his screams were heard as he slit himself with stones.
But upon seeing Jesus the man bowed down before him and the demon cried out, "What do you have to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg you before God, don't torment me!" For Jesus had been saying to him, “Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!” 
Jesus asked the demon his name. My name is Legion; for we are many, he replied. The demon continued begging Jesus not to send them…

They were offended at him!

But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house, Mark 6:4 KJV.
Jesus came to Nazareth, His hometown, accompanied by His disciples. On the Sabbath he was asked to speak in the synagogue and those who listened were astonished, marveling at His wisdom and wondering about its source. They also wondered about the miracles He was performing. 
"Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him, Mark 6:3.
He came to his country, to his own people in order to bless them, but marvelled because of their unbelief, and that prevented him from doing a miracle there, except that he laid his hands on a few sick people and healed them, but instead "he went round about the villages, teaching" Mark 6:6.
Why couldn’t he do anymore miracles there? It’s because they scrutinised him, judged him, and cr…
