Salvation a New Experience Every Day
Ron: 0:30 Salvation is a new beginning. Christ is our salvation every day. Therefore, we have an open door to be new every day. Christ has provided many things to help you to start the new, communion, the sabbath, His blood and body, water baptism, foot washings, and the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Everything Christ did was to set you free. Isaiah 42:9-10
Allan reads: 1:08 “Behold the former things have come to pass. Now I declare new things. Before they spring forth I proclaim them to you. Sing to the Lord a new song. Sing His praise from the end of the earth! You who go down to the sea and all that is in it. You islands and those who dwell on them.”Isaiah:
Ed reads: 1:38 “Do not call to mind the former things or ponder the things of the past. Behold I will do something new, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, Rivers in the deserts.”
Ron: 1:57 Every day Christ wants to do something brand new. It is us being able to dump the things wear away our spirits and that we carry with us that stop us from opening up to the new thing every day.
Dale: 2:18 Philippians 2:12 “So then, my beloved just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only but now much more in my absence. Work out your salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work in you both to will and to work for His good pleasure. Do all things without grumbling and disputing.” I wanted to add that because as you have read through what you addressed and the new day. You were taking us from that initial experience of salvation. You were taking us right through what it’s talking about there. Each day there is an expansion and a growth and a working out that the original gift grows and changes and becomes day by day. It is like another scripture and it’s the tare parable of the ten virgins. Five wise and five foolish. Salvation got you into that ten. It’s working out your salvation that gets you from the beginning into that place where that bridegroom comes you are ready.
Ron: 3:54 What is exciting about this is Christ, the Word, the scriptures is our salvation. It’s not like an ambiguous thing that you have to try to figure out how to work it out. If you were reaching in to Christ the Word, He is going to walk you right through it and there is an initiative obliviously for us to enter in and focus on His Word and recite it and speak it. But it is still Christ doing it through us and to us. Which is exciting because we have a relationship with the Word.
Allan: 4:40 You know you go into the Lord’s Prayer by some, it says give us this day our daily bread. I think there should be more of an emphasis on that daily part because each day He is to bring us the bread. And if we treat it like the manna when the children of Israel were in the wilderness then we don’t what to carry it into the next day. We need a fresh meeting with the Lord today. We need the Father to give us the fresh bread each and every day because the old revelation has worms in it now. And it is spoiled and has gone rotten it is not necessarily the same today as it was yesterday. He is fresh each and every day and if you ride on yesterday’s word your missing it. That is the problem with these mountain top type experiences. You get up and you have such a wonderful time and then the next day you need to have a fresh meeting with the Lord. You cannot live off of yesterday’s manna. Your refreshing yourself each and every day. You seek His presence each and every day. You ask Him, you know you read the word, you listen to a word from someone and you ask the Lord. Show me what you are saying today. Give me today my daily bread.
Ron: 6:22 This is the major pitfall of anybody that is walking with the Lord. Is they hang on to old experiences, old relationships, they let the past dictate their future. Because the Lord is new everyday. We have to be new and reaching into the new.
Dale: 6:48 One of the things about walking out our salvation is the thing that Alan was alluding to the mountain top experience. Many times, that is the time where God meets you in such a manner that it is marks your life. You don’t say I have got it put it in a jar put it on a shelf or on the mantle. It is how we go forward, God speaks to your heart, he gives you a revelation, a mountain to experience he wants to work with you on your salvation. To see that word written on your heart. That is why salvation will never be complete until He appears and we are like Him.
