has come to seek and save that which was lost"Luke 19:10

Lord!" is the absolute truth in the purest form. It is "Truth" the world, and/or the opposing spirits of the
world, cannot stand. (Read Acts 4) Yet when we go bringing the Kingdom, sharing the Love of the Father we are walking
in that Truth thus carrying on or maintaining the "Cause of Messiah." Jesus said in John 18:37 :
this cause I was born and for this cause I have come into the world that I should bear witness to the truth."
Let me encourage
you and me! Whatever concerns or cares we are currently facing, that may feel "big" or overwhelming
to us, will become "small" as we "live" the Word. I have mostly compiled for us, today, numerous scriptures
that remind us of "The Cause of Messiah". When we
belong to the Father and have been washed in the blood of the Lamb, and have become partakers of the New
Covenant, His cause becomes our cause. We are to have the Mind of Messiah.
Philippians 2:5-11 says:
this mind be in you which was also in Messiah Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal
with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
With all humility and love, Jesus was
on a mission to do the Will of the Father who sent him. He continually reminded us in the Gospel
of John that he was to be about his Father's business and it was the Father that sent him. This, my brothers
and sisters, is now our reason for being! We were created in the image of God, born
of His Spirit, for the Glory and purposes of God, Our Father. I've
been "pessimistically" accused of being a literal person, bordering on naïve because when someone says something
to me I take it to heart or take them at their word. (Sometimes verbatim; Yea,
word for word!) I must admit, this characteristic has caused me to misunderstand things and
people every now and then, but it has also, periodically caused me to be grossly misunderstood! On the other hand,
when it comes to the things of God, because of my "literal" flaw, I have a childlikeness that causes me
to take the Lord at His Word! So, what am I saying? When the Lord says to do something, I take it literally!
Saint of God, I don't know where you've been commissioned to go, or how you've
been formed or structured to be who you are created to be, but All, who are disciples of Messiah, have assignments (specific tasks)
and Divine appointments!!
Now, we believers love to use and quote the Word of God for
the "things of this world," to satisfy our flesh and earthly needs. We’ll use the Word for that house, car
or even that outfit we want, but how about we go ahead and "do" the Word (As our brother James admonished) to
ask for what is far greater! So I say to you in the Words of Our Savior: ask, and it shall be given, seek and you
will find, knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone
who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks, it will be opened.
He'll reveal those things He gave you "life" to do, those things you were born and "Born Again" to do, and you will
have the heart or will, zeal, time, moment, season, and the wisdom to be who you are to be, all for the "Cause of Messiah".
And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean
spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease. ---- These twelve Jesus sent
out. Matthew 10:1, 5
Then Jesus came and spoke to them saying:"All
authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go, therefore and make disciples of all nations baptizing them In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching
them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you, always, even to the end of the age." Matthew
"You know that those who are considered rulers over the Gentiles Lord it over them
and their great ones exercise authority over them. Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among
you shall be your servant. And whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.
And He said the them, "Go into all the
world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be
And they went out and preached everywhere,
the Lord working with them and confirming the word through accompanying signs. Amen. Mark 16:20
"No one, having put His hand to the plow, and looking
back, is fit for the Kingdom of God." Luke 9:62
After these things the Lord appointed seventy others
also, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He
Himself was about to go. Then he said to them, "The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few;
therefore Pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest. Go
your way; behold, I send you out as lambs among wolves." Luke 10:1-3
heal the sick who are there, and say to them, 'The Kingdom of the God has come near you.' Luke 10:9
Then He said to them, "Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Messiah to suffer and to rise from the
dead the third day, "and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached
in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem."
When Jesus heard it, He said to them; "Those who are
well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I did not come to
call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance." Mark 2:17
"Then the King will say to
those on His right hand, "Come blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the
world: "for I was hungry and you gave me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me
drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison
and you came to Me. Matthew
