RUNNING THE RACE
 
In Hebrews 12:1 it says,  “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.”   In our modern age, we use the “cloud” to upload many things. Pictures, documents, videos, and it becomes storage. In this instance in scripture, there is also an upload. The cloud is all of those in the previous chapter that went through tremendous trials. Some were cut in two. Some were killed with the sword. Some were destitute, afflicted, and tormented. This “cloud” of witnesses let’s the believer know that there will be many obstacles to our “race.” 
 
These scriptures are not put there to discourage us. They are put there to let us know the cost to be a true follower of Jesus Christ. What is the cost? Your life! Everything you have belongs to God when we become his child through salvation. Yet, everything God has is ours through salvation too. The race can be exceedingly difficult, but He runs with us. He is there to pick us up when we stumble and fall, then encourages us to keep going. 
 
The option to quit is there for each of us. Years ago, I went through three hurricanes that damaged a small business I had. The roof was taken off the building and water poured in each time a hurricane came. When the last one came through and I was cleaning up the mess again, I spoke to the Lord and said, “I don’t want to do this anymore.” He responded with tenderness and love and said, “that is okay if you choose to do so, but who will tell people about me?” I said okay Lord, I will keep going on, and I did. Eventually I gave up the business for ministry through our church thrift shop. Then a year ago, that also closed. It would be easy to give up the race, and stand on the sidelines, but I will always hear the Lord speaking “who will tell people about me.”
 
Are you discouraged my friends at the things happening in your life? I am sure many that are reading this can relate to discouragement. Some may be depressed, and some on the verge of bankruptcy, yet God has a plan. Every one of those mentioned in Hebrews 11 did not value their lives over their call. They were sold out. 
 
Let us make the decision to encourage ourselves in the Lord and continue to run the race. He will be with you all the way to the finish line!

I AM
 
When Moses encountered God in the burning bush (Exodus 3), Moses asked God for His name. God said that His name is I AM. It identified Him as the eternal Almighty God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. When Moses later told the Jews that He was sent by I AM, they understood who he meant even though they had been exposed to the demon gods of Egypt. They had no concept of a trinity, but they did know who Jacob’s God was.
 
Knowing the trinity from the New Testament, we can look back and see it also in the Old Testament. However, the trinity aspect of Gods nature is often still considered somewhat of a mystery. It was during Jesus’ time on earth that we see teaching of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, yet (this is the mystery) they are but one God.
 
Jesus asserts His divinity in John 8:23 where he says, “I am from above….I am not of this world.”  In John 10:30, he says “I and my Father are one.”  At the garden of Gethsemane, that absolute power of speaking the name of God is demonstrated when he identifies himself with that name. In John 18:4-6, those who came to take him replied when Jesus asked them, “Whom seek ye,”  they said, “Jesus of Nazareth.”  Jesus replied, “I AM.”  (note: the KJV word “he” is not in the Greek text.) Jesus replied with the same name as from Moses’ burning bush. What happened?
 
When Jesus spoke “I AM,” it was with so much power and glory that those men were knocked backward and struck to the ground. This is powerful proof that Father and Son are indeed one.
 
I once had a mentor who was caught up while in a trance to heaven’s throne room. There she saw two thrones, Father on one and Son on the other side by side as if they were conjoined. There was no separation between them. Their appearance was like a great ball of light, similar to our sun. They were two, but they were inseparable. Yes, Holy Spirit was not at the throne having been sent here to us.
 
Much remains a mystery to our human understanding. We shall surely know more when we arrive in heaven. Just be assured that when you call on Jesus’ name, you have the full power of the entire Godhead here for you.

PROPHETIC WORD

Shake off the dust and rise up. This is not a time to back down. Rise up in my power saith the Lord and go forth and do mighty exploits. Yes you are tired but go forth in my strength. Yes you have been wounded but I am your healing balm. You must rise up now and do battle like you’ve never done. You must not back down for the battle is raging and you are making a difference. Do not look at what’s lost. Look Unto me. It shall be recovered. You are mighty thru me saith the Lord for this is the time to shine like never before. Go forth now in my name! You shall see the victory as you go forth in my name saith the Lord.
