Rhapsody of Realities 1 September 2019 By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome – We Extend His Days
Topic: We Extend His Days
It has pleased the Lord to break through the pain…after having delivered his life as a sacrifice for sin, he shall see a posterity and prolong his days, and the work of the Lord shall prosper in his hand (Isaiah 53:10).
Think back to what we just read: it pleased the Lord to break through the suffering; after having delivered his life as a sacrifice for sin; he shall see a seed that shall prolong its days, its influence and establish its principles to always. This answers the question posed by the prophet in Isaiah 53:8: “among those of his generation, who considered…?”
We’re his seed, prolonging His days. The work of the Lord prospers in our hands. We, the Church, are those who declare who He really is and his plan of salvation for all humanity. We testify of his deity and continue all the beautiful things he has begun, both to do and teach (Acts 1:1). His miraculous deeds and teachings about the Kingdom of God, which he pursued through the apostles. In turn, they passed on the same teachings to others, and, finally, they were transmitted to us. And we continue until he comes again.
In John 20:21, he said: “…as my Father has sent me, even so send I you.”We are His ambassadors. We are His witnesses. We are the radiance of His glory, the distributor of His love, of His justice and of His grace. Hallelujah!
Dear heavenly Father, I am so grateful for the love and the grace that you have given me. Thank you for express yourself to the world through me. I am the radiance of your glory, the express image of your person and my life is a manifestation of the praise and glory of God, in the name of Jesus, Amen.
Romans 9:8″That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.”
Galatians 3:29;”And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”
Isaiah 53:8-11”He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.” ”And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.” ”Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.” ”He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.”
