ADVENT Meditation... Day 13

Advent Day 13
The Journey Towards Bethlehem
Year of Our LORD, 12.13.2008

shouldest mark iniquities,
who shall stand?

But there is forgiveness with THEE,
that THOU mayest be feared.

I wait for the LORD,
my soul doth wait,
and in HIS+ Word do I hope.
Psalm 130:3, 4, 5

Did Our LORD come to mark our iniquities?
No, rather HE+ became incarnate to deliver us from them. HE+ became incarnate to vanquish the enemy... the enemy who WANTS to become incarnate in us!
We guard our souls against every trick, every wile, of satan and his minions so that we do nothing to reflect his ways or his destruction of another man’s soul.
We put no hindrance before another soul … even out of “righteous” vengeance. We forgive others and make our soul wait on The Word of The LORD to deliver us.

O RIGHTEOUS SAVIOR, thank YOU+ for not marking my iniquities. Help me not to mark the iniquities of my friends and relatives, if I say I love them.
Help me not to mark the iniquities of my enemies… if I say I love YOU+.
Show me how to do this so they see YOU+, this time, instead of me.
This I pray in the name of The FATHER, Who created me, The SON+, Who+ saves me, and The HOLY SPIRIT Who sanctifies me.
