Jesus knows how to “ravish” the hearts of men!

       Here is some quiet time reflection which I would like to share…….. I still find this so encouraging and uplifting after 7 years.

Son_1:16

 “Behold, thou art fair, my Beloved.”

 

“Eternity shall not discover the shadow of a spot in our Beloved, but rather, as ages revolve, his hidden glories shall shine forth with yet more inconceivable splendour, and his unutterable loveliness shall more and more ravish all celestial minds.” (Spurgeons Devotional)

 

     Just to think of all that splendor is hard to conceive, we may see with our eyes of faith, but our fleshly minds can not contain it, nor know what to do with it.  We can rejoice to know the knowledge of it, but our rejoicing will be at it’s fullest when we see Him face to face throughout all eternity.  And the promise of that just lifts my unworthy heart to gaze upon Him, and thank Him for Him and His Calvary.

     I love the word which Spurgeon speaks here, “ravish”, what a glorious word!  For only Jesus is able to “ravish” the hearts of men, when He sets forth to place the Love of God within a mere mortals fleshly and darkened heart, that Love is His to keep within by the power of His Holy Spirit.  We, Adamicly speaking, have not the capacity to love in such a way.  I Praise God for All He has done for us sinners!

     May the Good Shepherd above ravish my heart a new.  Just the thought of those past memories where His Love ravished my heart… just the remembrance…., brings a long overdue renewal.  For so many days come and go, on and on, year in and out, days, weeks, months, seconds into minutes, and minutes rushing into short or ohhhh… long hours of busyness, dealings, failures, forgetfulness, nothingness or downright “sinfulness”.   Yet He is still there in all His Brilliance, and yes, “Ravishing” loveliness.  Brilliant beyond words, ever lasting Radiance which out shines every sun and star throughout the Galaxy!  Pure, unadulterated Glorious Light!!!!!!   The Light of Life, real Truthful Light, a Light overflowing with such Amazing Love, all separate, yet, it is All in One,  the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a “ransom” for us all,  the only One who ever could……thoughts by cwt

Be blessed………in His Eternal Love……..

    It is such an “amazing grace’ that we can love God like this.
    Sometimes I am overwhelmed by the fact that I love God.
    How could I love God? It is His gift to us that we can love HIm

      Amen dear sister. It truly is amazing how our God, and Saviour through the working of the Holy Spirit, as the word states; “for the Love of God is shed abroad in our hearts, by the Holy Spirit, it is given, it is given….unto us, too us,…..too us. I do think I hear a song coming on AMEN!
      Rom_5:5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

      In His Eternal Love……..

Apostate Evangelists & Teachers

For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 2nd Corinthians 11:13-14
