The High Priest of Our Confession

What do you confess?
The Bible says we overcame (the devil);
~ by the blood of the Lamb, and
~ by the word of our testimony
...[Revelation 12:11]
And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven [Matthew 16:19]
>Notice that Jesus said "I will" in the scripture above, for the reason that He had to die and resurrect to guarantee that.
Revelation 1:18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
>>Now notice in the scripture above that Jesus referred to Himself as he that liveth and was dead and alive for evermore,...
>>>Also notice that in Matthew 16:19; He promised us the Keys of heaven before His death and resurrection, but in Revelation 1:18 After His death and resurrection he says "...and have the keys of hell and of death".
>>>>Surprised? The question is in whose hands is the keys of heaven? As promised in Matthew 16:19. It's in your hands (as a believer) and you are to use it.
Jesus Christ is the High Priest of our confession (Hebrews 3:1), and is even at the right hand of God, making intercession for us (Romans 8:34).
Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Christ Jesus; Hebrews 3:1.
So How does this work- The ministry of intercession revealed:
Study the figure below and allow God to minister unto you, and rekindle your place of servicing the alter and SPEAKING The Word consistently.

Your duty is to yield to the HolySpirit (The Intercessor) to be a vessel, as He is the One that knows the will of God and therefore prays God's will - which is always answered. [Romans 8:26-27; 1 John 5:14-15].
The Only Intercessors: Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit, not you.
The Vessel/Mouthpiece: You [by yielding to The Holy Spirit to pray through you].
Qs:
Again, What do you confess? And Who do you think you are?
Act:
Ask God to reveal your standing in Christ Jesus.
Hold On to who you are in Christ, and grow-on from there.
Remain forever blessed.

Psalm 91: A Guaranteed Refuge 1

Psalm 91 [short series]. Psalm 91 is a commonly known Psalm that often raises doubts (e.g. Does it really apply to our present realities?), gets misinterpreted (e.g. If you trust God, no trouble will come to you) or gets undermined (e.g. It’s all a metaphor). But the message in the Psalm is such a profound encouragement to keep trusting in God because of the kind of refuge that only He can provide. As we will see in a 4 part study, the Psalm shows us why God is the only refuge you can trust (v2), and this is because: His refuge is guaranteed By His greatness: He can. v1, 11-12 By His promise: He will. v4, 14-16 His refuge is complete Through this life. v3-6, 13 Into the next life. v7-10, 16 His Refuge is guaranteed by His Greatness! Psalm 91:1, 11-12 He can always rescue! T

Eternal life is sacrificially following

Matthew 19:16-28. One of my favourite kids' exercises is the marshmallow test. Kids are given a marshmallow and left in a room. If they can wait for some time, they get more. You see kids staring, sniffing, poking and doing all sorts to the marshmallow. The point is to teach kids to wait for a better reward in the face of instant gratification. In the passage, Jesus gives a marshmallow test to a rich man, and he begins sniffing, poking - he gets sad! And it also made Jesus' disciples greatly astonished. Why was this? Because the gospel pattern of life will always look nothing like what the world calls living. Eternal life looks like sacrifice in the now for a future reward! A Present Sacrifice. (16-26) The rich man asks what good thing he must do to have eternal life (16). Jesus responds: only God is good; keep His commands (17). But the man replies, (paraphrased) "I am good too" wit

Psalm 91: A Complete Refuge 3

Psalm 91 [short series]. As we journey through life, sometimes we go through troubles beyond our control — an addiction, sudden financial lack, sickness, broken relationship, losing a loved one, a hope deferred. How do we navigate those seasons? Or maybe you are currently in such a season and wondering, "How do I live through this?" Previously [1] [2] , we saw that God's refuge is guaranteed. The Psalm also shows the completeness of God's refuge as a reason for how we can navigate the seasons of life. His Refuge is complete through this life! Psalm 91:3-6, 13 God rescues you from troubles beyond your reach and permanently deals with the cause of all problems, Satan himself. His refuge deals with: Sin: snare of the fowler (v3, 11-12) Snares are traps used to catch animals, often made with something enticing or luring, like a cheese trap for a
