Today Is The day Of Salvation
“And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” Luke 4:21
Jesus declared this in the Synagogue at the beginning of His ministry on earth. He spoke clearly, directly and openly that He is the fulfillment of all prophecy and promise concerning the Messiah. In Him every Word of God is true and every promise is Yes and Amen.
“For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.” 2 Corinthians 1:20
God is glorified through us when we put our faith, our hope and our trust in Him, hearing, believing, speaking and doing His will, doing His Word. When we choose the Word of Life and reject the lies of the enemy, even though they may manifest as the latest news headlines or your present financial, physical, mental, emotional and relational circumstance. If, for you, as a faithful believer and follower of Jesus Christ, it is not in line with the Word of God it is a lie. Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.”
“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6
If Jesus is the Truth, and He is, then all that is contrary to Him is a lie.
The question then is when is He the Truth? In other words when does His truth come to rest in my life? When does His Word have a transforming effect on me, on my circumstance, on all that concerns me?
Today is the day, the Word is the Truth in your life today! The sooner we are willing to accept the Truth of God’s Word for ourselves and for those we love the sooner the real transformation begins and the more immediate the reward of our faith is realized.
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, “Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them”. Mark 11:23-24
Now some will say this is all pie in the sky daydreaming or mere religious manipulation to get someone to follow a certain doctrinaire position, usually perceived to be extreme or based on impulse or emotion and not truth.
Well, apparently Jesus didn’t get that memo, because these are His words. He said, “when you pray...” That means at whatever time you pray, in that moment you also receive. Today is the moment to believe and receive.
Today is the day of salvation! Today is the day the Word of God is alive and coming to fulfillment in your life. Today is the day your faith rises to truly believe and to put your complete trust in Him. Today is the day for you to realize the desires of your heart met and provided to you by God the Father more than you could image or hold in the name of Jesus.
Believe, receive and be thankful. To God be the glory!
