The Anvil

“Last eve I paused beside the blacksmith’s door, And heard the anvil ring the vesper chime; Then looking in, I saw upon the floor, Old hammers, worn with beating years of time. “‘How many anvils have you had,’ said I, ‘To wear and batter all these hammers so?’ ‘Just one,’ said he, and then with twinkling eye, ‘The anvil wears the hammers out, you know.’ “And so, I thought, the Anvil of God’s Word For ages skeptic-blows have beat upon; Yet, though the noise of falling blows was heard, The Anvil is unharmed, the hammers gone.” — Attributed to John Clifford How serious do you take the content of this book? A book not published by human printing presses, not penned with the scarce and scaly sentences of sin-tainted humanity but God-breathed! A book whose breath breaks the bands and bonds of brokenness! *does the moonwalk* – THE WORD OF GOD! Do you know that God’s word is like a garden

Jesus: The Covenant

Act One, Scene One Matthew {1:1} The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. No matter how you look at it God is a God of covenants.

It was both terrestrial and celestial in nature. God promised to bless his descendants and make them His own special people – in return, Abraham was to remain faithful to God and to serve as a channel through which God’s blessings could flow to the rest

It is written

He knew the word by study. It wasn’t because He had instructed the writers by His SPIRIT. Rather as with all things that involved humanity, the Messiah had known through study. He had learnt how to walk and talk. He didn’t leap out of Mary’s womb screaming words of Rhema and Repentance. He didn’t grab Joseph’s beard and yell “Were you there when I carved the earth’s foundations?” Jesus responded to temptation with the word. He knew it, He spoke it and in the right context too. Know your scriptures, speak them. #la130 — Eloho (@Eloxie) October 2, 2013 Jesus learnt and applied. I imagine he had the same kind of childhood as Timothy who from a child studied the scriptures. And thus the very words that prophesied about Him became the foundation of his life. We see evidence of this when we look at the baptism. John was reluctant to baptise the Christ, but Jesus who had studied scripture
