WoW! I feel kinda sad to leave the subject of the Lamb taking the Title Deed to the earth!  

As a matter of fact, I was beginning to feel it; seeing myself looking into heaven with John and watching the Lamb loose those seven seals in Revelation chapter 5.  

The experience of writing about such a heavenly subject seeing that the “Lamb of God” who takes away the sins of the world takes the title deed of the earth from the “one great God who sits on the throne,” the only true God  who has kept the deed in safe keeping until at such time after He prevailed, the Lamb (the Lion of the Tribe of Judah and of the Root of David), it’s exciting!!  

He prevailed to be worthy to take this deed. And don’t forget the innumerable angels…so many they cannot be counted and then the 24 elders and the four living creatures with eyes all around. Oh my, just the thought of it all took me to heaven.  

Well, here I am moving to another subject. However, it cannot be disconnected from the main character, the Lamb, the Messiah, Jesus Christ.  I tell you Jesus Christ is all and all.  

He tells us in Ephesians 1:13 and Ephesians 4:20 that those who accept His invitation in Romans 10:8-17 are sealed. How do we become “sealed?” It’s so simple in the beginning and the following Him is quite significant.  

What does the word of faith say? The word in your mouth and in your heart that the one true God has raised Jesus from the dead you will be saved! Imagine that!  

Your heart of deep sincerity, deep unwavering trust, and faith, believing to righteousness, confess with your mouth, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” When you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you become a different person.  

Yup, that’s right. Your conscience is deeper. You examine your actions more closely; that is how you treat others and how you respond to your moral conscience from the heart.  By accepting Him, Ephesians 1:13 and Ephesians 4:20 take your gift of salvation to different levels.  

His Holy Spirit comes and dwells in us. We are granted security. After hearing the word of truth, the Holy Spirit of promise indwells us and guarantees us salvation to eternal glory. It is a guarantee of our acceptance.  

When you have an insurance policy you expect you can draw on it. And you say, “Okay. Pay up.” Correct? Salvation is our “seal.”  

We have security and the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and enthroned Him at His right hand,” (Ephesians 1:19, 20).  

Look at the benefits gained from accepting Jesus Christ by faith and faith alone. Our “seal” is God’s pledge for our future inheritance. Yes. We have a glorious present activation and a future inheritance (2 Corinthians 1:21). You don’t want to miss it. We’re one of those elect and accepted ones in that myriad of saved ones in Revelation.  

Our “seal” is an authentication that we belong to Jesus Christ. Our “seal” demonstrates that we belong to Him and cannot be snatched out from under His protection. We are under His authority and ownership.  

Someone might ask, “What about when we do things that are wrong whether immoral or otherwise?” Jesus Christ is “the Lord of second chances.” Go to him. Talk to Him. Hold a conversation with Him. Tell Him your problems. He will help you.  

But don’t play around with Him. you can’t fool Him.  He’s no joke. He knows everything about us. He knows our name and street address He knows our license plate number of our cars…yes, everything. There is literally nowhere to run and nowhere to hide.  

Writing for the Lord and loving it! Thanks for reading!
