While reading Proverbs 23 and came to verse 23, "Embrace the truth and hold it close..."I discovered that the word "truth" has several meanings in Hebrew. Truth means literally "give birth to truth" or "possess the truth" Truth is also used for God as the Creator! Jesus is the the Way, the TRUTH and the Life! I learned this from Wade Taylor's teachings, "truth is always costly and the result may not be seen, but to choose less, in the long run is much more costly." Jesus could only say "I am the truth." because He put the will of His Father ahead of His own comfort and satisfaction. There is no easy formula to success, because there is always a price! When we choose the purpose of the Lord, we are "embracing the Truth"... In doing this we are paying the price! Many are called, but few are willing to pay the price to embrace the truth... May we ALL be willing!!!!!!!
IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD, EVEN THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. COLOSSIANS 1:14... Did you know that the blood of a baby in the womb never comes in contact with the mother and that it is contributed by the male seed, not by the female egg? This was a divine plan of God when He designed men & women. God knew He would need to send a Savior into the world to redeem them!!! We all need a SAVIOR and only the blood of Jesus can cleanse us and make us white as snow!!! Redeem means to pay a price to ransom someone. Our redemption could only be bought with the perfect, pure blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus came from the Holy Spirit when He overshadowed Mary, therefore the blood of Jesus was completely pure. His blood was the only blood that could pay for our sins because it came directly from God and was never contaminated with sin. It was the perfect payment and sacrifice for our forgiveness!!!The blood of Christ is still cleansing and washing us today as much as it did two t
