I peer at Emmanuel’s Land as I draw closer to crossing the river Jordan. I pray to Jehovah that my eyesight of faith is not growing dimmer as my physical eyes are wearing out. This world is but a fleeting glance of darkness but He is Light Eternal burning bright and fair. I pray His whole beauty consumes me and mine. For he has given me an heritage of loving physical and spiritual children that I desire to see cross that river safely as Pilgrim in the Progress.
There is a King and He has all might and authority.
He is most loving and the whole Earth is full of His glory.
Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,
who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God,
but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men.
And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.
Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,
and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.
For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.
