Great miracles by Christ

The miracle of getting "taken out of sin" and getting "put into" Christ can be compared to the miracle of God taking the children of Israel out of Egypt, through the Red Sea, and putting them into the Wilderness. It was called the "Exodus". In the Exodus deliverance by the hand of God took place. God delivered the nation of Israel (perhaps a million people) from Pharaoh. The Egyptian armies were destroyed by the judgment of an angry God.

Exodus 12:37-38...And the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot that were men, beside children. And a mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks, and herds, even very much cattle.

In those days of deliverance the mighty hand of God dealt with the children of Israel as a whole nation. In this day of deliverance God deals with the entire human family Jew and Gentile alike. Deliverance today is a miracle of getting "put into Christ" and "being taken out of the bondage of sin". The miracle today is the blessing of the Gospel which offers deliverance to sinful men and actually pertains to the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ that was foretold by the Prophets.

This Gospel I speak of delivers the sinner from the bondage of sin. This Gospel I speak of shows a sinner what he actually is in light of Christ. This Gospel I speak of is power from above. The same power that delivered Israel on a greater scale.  Miracle working power just like in the days of the Exodus when God parted the waters of the Red Sea and destroyed Pharaoh's army. When a sinner today finds personal forgiveness in Christ, God takes this individual out of sin and puts this person to His Spiritual body...called the Church.By one Spirit we are all baptized into one body...

The church today is on much bigger and a much greater scale than God's deliverance of the children of Israel from Egypt. I speak of an omnipresent Christ who rules the entire Earth from His Throne in Heaven. Who sent His Holy Spirit in His name to testify to the hearts of sinful men that Christ is a better way and a better life for humanity. Forgiveness is found on a personal level. Deliverance from sin is found on a personal level. The heart is made clean and holy by the miracle operation of the mighty hand of God on a personal level. The same hand that took 1,000,000 Israelites from Egypt and delivered them into the wilderness, which led to the land of Canaan. Is the same hand I speak of today. Christ Jesus! God's Son!

Christ is bigger today as His Grace flows from Calvary by the Spirit of holiness. His miracles are great today as He rules from the right hand of God the Father. Sin is no match for the power of  the Gospel that brings Salvation to the human soul. Oh...how the power of this Gospel can cleanse the heart of man from sin and morally change the make-up of a sinner into a child of God. The miracle of the Exodus is only a fragment of the great miracle of Salvation that comes from Christ today. It's called the Grace of God that bringeth Salvation.

Glory! We have a greater blessing under Grace today because of Christ who built His Church...of which we are members of today by His Spirit. By the Gospel we preach Christ "adds to" this great body by deliverance from sin and the blessing of His Grace that changes man morally. Oh how great the magnitude of Christ, who is the builder of the Church that allows people from every kindred, tongue, and nation to partake of His Divine blessing...by simple belief and trust in Christ.

The Gospel reveals the importance of the death, the burial, and the resurrection of Jesus Christ according to the Scriptures. The Gospel reveals the Grace of God which so much greater than the Law given to Israel only. Today by Grace we have a city in Heaven. A city where Christ is seated now with all power and authority.

May we see the magnitude of Christ the deliverer, and Savior of the world on a greater level that Israel's Exodus from the bondage of Pharaoh. Glory! Christ on a much greater scale for people...like you and I. Around the globe who need forgiveness from sin and Salvation of the human soul. May the Gospel of Christ's death, burial, and resurrection be the center of our hearts and lives. May the Gospel of Christ's death, burial, and resurrection be revealed with great effect and magnitude around the globe. The Gospel is the power of Salvation greater than anything man can do or work for. The Gospel is the power of God "given freely" to anyone who trusts in the death of a Savior to find mercy and forgiveness.

Will you believe and trust in Christ today? I love you all and appreciate you for sharing Christ. God Bless and keep going to the fountain to drink. The fountain is Christ who performs greater miracles today.
