BEFORE & AFTER THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST (MY GLEAMINGS FROM CONFERENCE AT PENRITH, AUSTRALIA BY EVANGELIST T.L. OSBORN

             BEFORE & AFTER THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST!  (MY GLEAMINGS FROM CONFERENCE AT                            PENRITH, AUSTRALIA BY EVANGELIST T.L. OSBORN)

The God of the Bible is the Only True and Living God, the Creator of the Universe and All Living things, including Mankind!

God is Sovereignly in Control of All Persons, All things and all Circumstances and He Rules in the Kingdom of men!        God is at Work all the time though unnoticed by man!

God is the Same and Changes Not!  God is Righteous and Just in Character and He sees the End from the Beginning so He cannot Make a Mistake!

God is NOT A MAN TO LIE  (Numbers 23: 19) and so His Word Never Changes! 

What He Said happened and what He Promised will happen!

Man lost his standing, his communion and fellowship with God in Eden because of Disobedience to God. Disobedience to God IS SIN (big or small) still separates from God because God is Holy!                                   Man had to now rely on his five senses to fend for himself and defend himself and became DEATH-DOOMED and under the Dominion of God’s Enemy, Satan.                                                                                                           All God’s Way’s and all He Acts have been recorded and preserved for us in the Old Testament.                       All that happened when God sent His Son, Jesus Christ into the World as Promised by Him in the Garden of Eden in spite of man’s fall; and all that Jesus Christ did and Promised have been recorded and preserved for us in the New Testament!       These two Testaments or Covenants form the Bible, the Word of God!        Heaven and Earth shall pass away but His Word shall not pass away Matt. 24: 35                                                     Man is warned not to add nor take away from the Word. Rev.22: 18, 19

THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST DIVIDES BETWEEN THE TWO TESTAMENTS OR COVENANTS.

The Bible says: BEFORE THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST Man finds himself (BEFORE CONVERSION)           Under Satan and Without God   Eph. 2: 12   Without Christ   Eph. 2: 12   No real life  Eph. 2: 1                              No Hope  Eph. 2: 12   No Peace Isa, 57:  21  No Escape  Heb. 2: 3                                                                                 Bound for Hell  -    MAN IS LOST

The Bible says: AFTER THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST Man finds himself  (AFTER CONVERSION)                   Under Christ & God is his Father   John 1: 12             Has Christ as Savior          John 4: 42                                Has Eternal Life  John 3:16   Has Holy Spirit to Guide  John 16:13  A sure Hope -Hebrews 6: 19                        Has Peace with God            Rom 5: 1                                                                                                                                 Bound for Heaven  -  SAVED FROM AND DELIVERED FROM SATAN’S DOMINION!

Many think that the O.T. people were so close to God and God seemed more Powerful than today.               They were not Born-again Believers.

We need to KNOW who we are IN CHRIST and then Act on His Word and God will Confirm His Word to you.        Read Heb. 1: 1-3 and Heb. 2: 1- 3

KNOW that there is a distinction between BEFORE & AFTER THE CROSS OF CHRIST!

Before the Cross- THEN                                       After the Cross – NOW

The Holy Spirit was UPON them                          The Holy Spirit is WITHIN us

It was their History                                                It is our Experience

It was Jesus of Sacred History                            It is our Sacred Living

It was Christ with them                                        It is Christ IN US

It was Bible Description of Yesterday                It is Bible Action of the Present

It was Revelation                                                  It is now Manifestation

His Example in Human Flesh                              His Reality in our Flesh

It was God in Christ – a Jew                                It is Christ IN our Flesh – All Races

God through Christ then                                      It is Christ through us In Our Days

God sent Jesus                                                     Christ sends us as Witnesses

JESUS CHRIST IS OUR EXAMPLE AND THE NEW TESTAMENT CHURCH SHOULD CONTINUE TO DO AND TEACH WHAT JESUS BEGAN TO DO AND TEACH (ACTS 1: 1-4)  LIKE THE DISCIPLES DID.

THE HOLY SPIRIT DOES NOT REPLACE CHRIST BUT HE REVEALS CHRIST AS HE LIVES IN US AND THROUGH US, ENLIGHTENING US & TEACHING US.

THE BOOK OF ACTS CONTINUES TO BE WRITTEN THROUGH ALL THE JESUS-MEN AND JESUS-WOMEN ALL OVER THE WORLD DEMONSTRATING THE DEFEAT OF SATAN’S  DOMINION OVER MANKIND  THROUGH THE AUTHORITY IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

Believers. We need to Grow up from being Children, to being SONS/DAUGHTERS OF GOD  and take back from the Devil what JESUS CHRIST, THE SON OF GOD HAS PURCHASED FOR ALL MANKIND BY HIS PRECIOUS, HOLY, SINLESS, BLOOD-SACRIFICE ON THE CROSS OF CALVARY!!!  HALLELUYAH!!

We are HEIRS OF GOD and JOINT-HEIRS WITH CHRIST!                                                                                               Are you been Baptized in the Holy Ghost? then you have HOLY GHOST POWER- Acts 1: 8   

THE HOLY GHOST IS GOD, THIRD PERSON IN OUR TRIUNE GOD. HE CAME INTO THE WORLD ON THE DAY OF PENTECOST TO INDWELL HIS BLOOD-WASHED, COVENANT PEOPLE  TO CONVICT THE WORLD OF SIN, OF RIGHTEOUSNESS AND OF JUDGMENT! (John 16: 7- 16)

JESUS CHRIST Said:  “ALL POWER HAS BEEN GIVEN UNTO ME IN HEAVEN AND IN EARTH.   GO YE THEREFORE, AND TEACH ALL NATIONS, BAPTIZING THEM IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, AND OF THE SON, AND THE HOLY GHOST!  TEACHING THEM TO OBSERVE ALL THINGS WHATSOEVER I HAVE COMMANDED YOU: AND LO, I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS, EVEN UNTO THE END OF THIS WORLD.”              (MAT. 28: 18- 20)

Often Believers are running after signs, whereas Jesus Christ Said, “GO YE INTO ALL THE WORLD, AND PREACH THE GOSPEL TO EVERY CREATURE. HE THAT BELIEVETH AND  IS BAPTIZED SHALL BE SAVED; BUT HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT SHALL BE DAMNED.  AND THESE SIGNS SHALL FOLLOW THEM THAT BELIEVE: IN MY NAME SHALL THEY CAST OUT DEVILS:   THEY SHALL SPEAK WITH NEW TONGUES; THEY SHALL TAKE UP SERPENTS,  AND IF THEY DRINK ANY DEADLY THING, IT SHALL NOT HURT THEM; THEY SHALL LAY HANDS ON THE SICK, AND THEY SHALL RECOVER.   Mark 16: 15- 18

Since we live  AFTER THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST, let us Rise up as Born-again SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD (Col. 1: 12, 14) and turn Our World  (wherever we live) upside down, for JESUS CHRIST IS ALIVE FOREVER MORE AND HE IS LORD OF ALL!!   HALLELUJAH!!                                                 Margaret Wright
