Jesus the Savior, Christ our Master has redeemed and deliver us from not only, that awful monster, but from his habitat, from where he dwells, from lakes of fire, burning with brimstone, caves, marshes, muddy rivers, deserts, and wastelands, with their lifeless life, and putrid ungrateful smells. He is our everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace. He has delivered us from evils, and falsities, selfish loves of self, and the loves and lusts of this world. These have indeed entrapped, held captive, and enslaved the souls of men, bringing forth their pain, anguish and torment, yea, even weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth. Oh, our great Almighty God, who has fought and won our battles of enticements, and temptations, so that truth and goodness might be confirmed within our very souls. Also that we might escape, the chains and shackles, of our false thoughts and evils doings, that have weighed us down in times past. He through his power has cast out our devils, and our satans, our evils and falsities, that are found within our flesh. He amends, and He heals those that are spiritually weak, and sick, and those that need to be edified, and uplifted.
The poor, and the needy, He nourishes, yea, those that have a wanting for more, and thereby acknowledge, that all good and truth comes from Him, and thereby are willing to be lead by their Lord. He causes those that are in ignorance of truth, or blind to the truth, to see, and to understand, to have a knowing, that seeing they might see. He quickens the spirits of men, that they might have affection for His truths, a beating of the heart unto Him, a burning, that hearing they may hear, and hear the word of God. That they then become doers, and not just hearers of His Word. He causes the dumb to speak, that they might confess and an acknowledge that Jesus is the Christ the Son of the living Father. He causes the lame to walk, meaning those that having a portion of good, or a portion of charity, for lack of the gospel in their lives, then to be taught, and to be fed, that they may also partake of the whole, and have salvation. He has built and raised us up, and formed us from clay, and fashion us, anew creature, giving us a new birth, that we might be free.
Yea, even free from our sins and iniquities, having gladness of mind, and joy of the heart. He inspires, strengthen, and enables us to follow His righteousness, and partake of His goodness. Yea, not only to follow and partake, but to love, and be of use to our neighbors, so that our neighbor may follow, so that our neighbor may partake. He cleanses us, and purifies us, though sometimes by fire, as He reminds, prompts, and even at times chastens us, so that we might remain holding on to that iron rod, leading to the tree of life, the love of God, where the fruit is delicious above all, leaving us a wanting and a groaning. A wanting and groaning for more, of His love, compassion, mercy, and grace, and a wanting and a groaning for more of his light, truths of faith, with their knowledges, intelligence, and wisdom. Oh, let us pay the price! He loves us for he suffered afflictions, cruelty, jealousies, malices and hatreds, not even once giving way to sin, and also even to the giving of his blood, which was shed for us. He suffered in agony the heights of pain, and torment, as he submitted to, and endured through bringing about His infinite atonement.
He battled and fought against all of the devils of hell, and the victory was His, for no man could assist, or lend a helping hand. Yet, we with the utmost astonishment, and celebration bend and bow, honor and praise, his holy name. We shout, confess, and sing hallelujah, hallelujah in gratitude, and thanksgiving for all that He has accomplished for us, for all of His love he as given us, and showered down upon us. He is our King, our Great High Priest, His name is Emanuel, for He is with us. Amen and amen forevermore.
In Isaiah 9: 6 it says that
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
