My Prayer for Today

My Prayer for Today
Lord, bless us all that are covered in and by the blood of Jesus for our eternal salvation. As we are blessed, may we Your children, "GO" and evangelize Your Word to the lost; may those that are secular hear Your Word, read Your Word or see Your "Light" in a born again Christian--that Christian may be the only Bible that they will see--and want to come and be saved through true and genuine repentance for the remission of their sins; accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior; the Holy Spirit will "Immediately come and indwell" in that person; become "Children" of God; "Ambassadors" of God and have "Eternal Life" in the heavens with Yahweh. Hallelujah! If you read or hear God's Word, I humbly ask you to believe and "Come". In Jesus' name is my prayer. Amen. - Min. Lynwood F. Mundy

Your assurance was the result of prayer. When at any time you have had high and rapturous joys, you have been obliged to look upon them as answers to your prayers.

Leviticus 4:1–6:30

Atonement is appealing because we all have relationships we wish we could reconcile. The 12-step program involves forgiving and forging renewed relationships when possible. But the story with God is different. There’s an acute awareness that we can’t fix things with our Creator; we need someone or something else to do it for us.
Jesus is described as the atonement, the sacrifice, and the perfect offering. But what do these terms actually mean? In Leviticus 5:14–6:30, we learn what it means for Jesus to be a guilt offering: He takes the guilt of the people, incurred through their sinful acts, and takes it upon Himself. He becomes the “ram without defect from the flock” (Lev 6:6).
Jesus takes the stage as the Suffering Servant in Isa 52:13–53:12, fulfilling the events it prophesies. Isaiah 53:10 reads, “If she places [the servant’s] life a guilt offering, he will see offspring, he will prolong days. And the will of Yahweh is in h…
