“ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE MONTH THE TOPS OF THE MOUNTAIN WERE SEEN.”
This verse is applicable referring to the ..
First Day of the New Year.
The ninth month here, corresponds with our January ; so we see the “first day” is our January the 1st.
What a wonderful discovery, that after 40 days and 40 nights of seeing nothing but endless expansion of water, to discover the uncovering of the Mountains.
The flood was Declining and now on the first day of the year the peaks of the mountain were seen.
God had not forgotten His promise to Noah and his family.
For us .. the mountain peaks speaks to us as the first day of the year in 2022.
WHAT WILL THIS NEW YEAR BRING?
Many people feel apprehensive and insecure, and very much afraid.
They wonder .. will it bring JOY or SORROW,
ACHIEVEMENT, or DISCOURAGEMENT,
HEALTH or SICKNESS, GOOD OR EVIL?
We cannot foresee what darksome valleys, or lush green Plains, or surprise vistas of countryside this coming year may bring.
Yet if we are in Christ we are not in total obscurity.
Certain grand securities stand out in advance from a spiritual point of view.
THEIR ARE SPIRITUAL MIRACLES THAT HALT THE IMPOSSIBLE SITUATIONS THAT YOU WILL FACE.
All POWER IS GIVEN UNTO “HIM.”
Matt 28: 18.
“HE GIVES “YOU” THE POWER TO BECOME ….”HIS children … To become like Him.
John 1:12. Roms 8:28,29.
Those reassuring mountain-tops speak to us of the DIVINE PROMISES OF GOD.
2 Peter 1:4. These are MAGNIFICENT, EXCEEDING GREAT AND PRECIOUS PROMISES.
He promises to you .. HIS DIVINE NATURE .. HIS PERSONAL PRESENCE .. HIS PROTECTION .. PROVISION and THE POWER TO ESCAPE THE CORRUPTION OF THIS WORLD. Look up and see the Glorious Mountain peaks. Then go forward by faith in who He is and what He says.
Fear and despair about tomorrow will only destroy your faith in the goodness of God.
Don’t say, “It might have been.”
“I could have, should have, been a better Christian!” Forget the failures of the past, except what you can learn from them .. to trust Christ more and self less. Be resolved to live for God in 2022.
Then there is the GLORY PEAK that juts out from all other peaks.
THE PEAK OF THE LORD’S RETURN.
The darker your days the brighter it shines.
“A LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS!”
It shines from the mountain peaks of .. Love, Trust, Joy and Peace, gilding all the unknown tomorrows with its lovely guarantee of ultimate blessedness.
The mountain tops were seen from the Ark, and the Ark typified our Saviour. No such radiant peaks greet those who do not know Him as their Saviour.
They were seen from Mount Ararat, which means “Holy Ground.” Without true consecration there can only a hazy vision of Him who is the Truth.
They were seen from “another” Hight. We must live on a higher altitude spiritually .. In Heavenly Places!
Some people who belong to the Lord, live as it were, in the basement of the Ark, in the twilight of a faith which is never quite sure.
They listen to the thud of the waters that beat against the bottom of the Ark and they question if the Ark can survive the strain and whether or not their Salvation will survive.
Christian reader, “Climb the Ark!” Get out of the basement of fear and doubt and gaze into the higher Places with an “assurance of faith.”
Bathe in the glory light of His Faithfulness.
The new year is upon us, 2022 is here!
When you celebrate the hope of the New Year, Celebrate the ONE WHO IS OUT OF TIME.
The ONE WHO LIVES IN ETERNITY!
“ALMIGHTY GOD” HIMSELF, WHO MADE THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH.
He is the ARK OF SAFETY in this very troubled World. Come to Him through JESUS CHRIST THE LORD.
A prayer you can 🙏 pray.
“Lord, I am afraid to enter another year of financial lack, another year of severe pandemic, death and dying. I am afraid to step into this year.
Lord, l put my trust in You to save and keep me safe to live in these troubled times.
Today I hand my life over to You my Ark of Safety.
I make Jesus’s my Lord and Saviour.
Amen. “MY PEACE I GIVE TO YOU”
