Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“The Promise Keeper”
Text: Nehemiah 13:4
“Now before this, Eliashib the priest, having authority over the storerooms of the house of our God, was allied with Tobiah.”
In Eliashib the priest we can see the hopelessness of mankind without God; without God’s Grace We are all Promise Breakers.
Eliashib as a priest had promised to obey and represent God to the people. He broke this promise by making an alliance with Tobiah the hater and enemy of God; and even gave Tobiah a large room in the house of God! Eliashib’s model of a promise breaker taught the people to also break their promise of obedience to God’s Law.
You see the Law’s rules and covenants were all ultimately powerless to stop sin. Only the New Covenant of Grace through Faith in the Work of Jesus Christ on the Cross,(Heb.10:14), and His Life flowing in our lives, (John 15:1-8), gives you and I the power to overcome sin, and keep our Promise to Love and Obey God.
Paul explains it this way:
“For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh,”(Rom.8:3).
Oh Hallelujah! The Faithful Warrior has The Promise Keeper Ruling and Reigning Over Every Area Of Our Life - and our Helper Holy Spirit Is Helping You and I Keep our Promise to Love and Obey God by working in us both to Will and to Do what pleases God. (Phil.2:13).
The Promise Keeper Helps You and I become a promise keeper too; when we depend on His Work instead of our work!Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
