Incarnation to Resurrection, Day Nine


Incarnation to Resurrection

#‎RAD #‎ATEND G-d (Christ) #‎IIC714

Incarnation to Resurrection roughly three and one-half years, in 12 weeks, Sunday through Friday (six days) per week


In John Chapter two we’ll read of Jesus’ First Miracle, the ‘The Wedding Feast at Cana’ where Jesus transformed ‘Water to Wine’, John 2:1 – 12. In this section we see Jesus addressing his mother in what may seem odd, perplexing of even out-of-place, from our western world views of “Honouring one’s Father and Mother” – Deuteronomy 5:16 and Exodus 20:12. Later in the New Testament, in one of the Pauline Letters (The Epistle of Paul to the Church in Ephesus) in Ephesians 6:2 we read “the first commandment with a promise”, but I digress… our western world views of “Honouring one’s Father and Mother”… In John 2:4 we read Jesus’ reply to His mother, Mary – “What do we have in common, woman?”, Aramaic Bible in Plain English.

Continuing through John Chapter Two we read of Jesus (you know, the milquetoast Jesus who never said, or did a “mean thing” in His life) taking a
scourge[1] and Clears the Temple Courts of merchants bastardizing His Father’s House – John 2:13 – 22, and we also get a glimpse of Jesus Knowing What Is in Man! 

And that, right there ^ ^ ^ my friends, is GOOD NEWS!

“No Jesus, NO peace” and yet, “Know Jesus, KNOW peace”

How does one get to “know” Jesus?  Simple, invite Him into your heart, as Jesus says: “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.” [Revelation 3:20 NIV]  How can be assured that this Jesus stuff means anything?  Well because the Bible tells us so, as the Apostle Paul wrote:

“If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.” [Romans 10:9-10 NIV]

And for those of you who say to me, I can’t be bothered reading the Bible, “it’s confusing” or “it’s a waste of my time”, may I draw your attention to what the Bible says about wisdom: “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” [Proverbs 9:10 NIV]

If nothing else, PLEASE read two chapters from the Bible – (don’t own one, sorry NO excuse, if you’re reading this, you can access this: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John%203:16&version=NIV) John 3 and John 14!

John 3:16 says: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

And John 14:6 says: “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Well that’s it, that’s Da Bauz’s Take on, “Incarnation to Resurrection, Day Nine of Eighty-four” – this 15th day of January 2018 © 2018, All Rights Reserved. wr (Da Bauz, Christian Zionist “creationist” too!)

Just sayin’...

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem...

Incarnation to Resurrection, Day Eight


Incarnation to Resurrection

#‎RAD #‎ATEND G-d (Christ) #‎IIC714

Incarnation to Resurrection roughly three and one-half years, in 12 weeks, Sunday through Friday (six days) per week

Day Eight of Eighty-four:

Today, we begin our second week’s journey into exploring the life and exploits of Jesus, from Incarnation to Resurrection in 12 weeks with the
Thunder in the Desert, as John the Baptist Prepares the Way of Messiah.  In both Matthew 3:17 and also Luke 3:7 we read of John the Baptist’s now infamous cry – “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?” – after becoming aware that some Pharisees (modern day Pious or Orthodox Jews) were approaching as he was preaching of Messiah, and baptising people, because it (John’s Baptism) was becoming ‘the popular thing to do’.

In Matthew and Luke we read of John the Baptist preaching of the soon coming Messiah, and the promise of Messiah to Baptise followers (adherents / believer in Messiah) with the Holy Ghost.  And in Matthew, Mark and also Luke, we of the other well known quote from John the Baptist - - “…who is mightier than I is coming, the strap of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie…”  because “The main character in this drama, to whom I’m a mere stagehand, will ignite the kingdom life, a fire, the Holy Spirit within you, changing you from the inside out. He’s going to clean house…”

Also at this time we read of the “Baptism of Jesus”; “Jesus’s Baptism in the Holy Ghost”; The bold declaration that “Jesus is G-d’s Son”; “The Temptation of Jesus”, “The Beginning of Jesus’ Ministry” and the “Calling of the First Disciples”.  As we continue with today’s reading, progressing our way through John, we read of Jesus Calling Philip and Nathanael, including Nathanael asking “Nazareth! Can anything good come from there?

This my friends, is GOOD NEWS!

Incarnation to Resurrection, Day Six


Incarnation to Resurrection

#‎RAD #‎ATEND G-d (Christ) #‎IIC714

Incarnation to Resurrection roughly three and one-half years, in 12 weeks, Sunday through Friday (six days) per week

Day Six of Eighty-four:

Today, as we wrap up the First Week of our Twelve Week journey through THE Christmas story to THE Resurrection story, we will see how the story continues as we read in
Matthew 2:16-23 about the third and final segment of our three-part review of the account of “The Slaughter of the Innocents”[1].  We’ll read of Joseph, Mary and the child Jesus and their return to Eretz Yisroel following the death of the evil king Herod.   Later we’ll read of perhaps one of the single most profound things any boy of approximately 12-years-of-age could ever say:

Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father's house?”

And we’ll close this First Week off with two things:

First a review of the previous days readings, and then second with the text from
John 1:16-18.

On Day One we reviewed four (4) different Old Testament (TaNaKh [2]) passages beginning with
Isaiah 9:5 & 6 followed by Psalm 89:4 & 5 and II Samuel 7:12 – 16, and then also Deuteronomy 18:15 – 22 proclaiming the coming of Messiah.  We also looked at G-d’s eternal sovereignty through Genesis 1:1; John 1:1; Proverbs 8:23.  Continuing on with Day Two we review the Messianic Prophecies of the Virgin Birth, Isaiah 7:14 fulfilled Matthew 1:23. And we saw some background information of Jesus’ cousin, the son of Mary’s cousin Elizabeth, John the Baptist’s birth. 

On Days Three and Four we read of Zechariah naming John and of both trek to Bethlehem for the census, and later the visit of the Magi (Wise men), which introduces the First of the Three part sidebar story on “The Slaughter of the Innocents”[1]

Next, on Day Five we read of the Angel’s warning to Joseph and Mary to ‘flee to Egypt’ for the safety of the Baby, all in the midst of great rejoicing and celebratory behaviour because of Messiah’s arrival.

And finally, today, on Day Six we are granted the opportunity, unique in all of history to meet, see, and even experience, the Living G-d, Jesus.  For in times past – “No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father's side, he has made him known.” – John 1:18, ESV

And that my friends, is GOOD NEWS!

I’ve taken the liberty of assembling a weekly chart of daily readings to cover the chronology

Week 1            Matthew 1-2; Luke 1-2; John 1:1-18
