I have been hanging out in Ephesians for the last week or so. I know, its a really small book to stay so long in but it is just so full!
I did this page highlighting scripture that shows "who I am or what I have in Christ".
I mentioned a while back that I have lived my whole life expecting the rapture and knowing what the tribulation would be like.... you know, the whole 666 mark that will be placed on the hand or forehead of folks left behind. Honestly, the whole idea of that has kept me walking saved!
Well, a few years ago I "saw" Ephesians 1:13 for the first time! I am ALREADY SEALED! "In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation - having also believed, YOU WERE SEALED in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise"!!! And, in Revelations 7:3 it says "Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees until we have SEALED the bond-servants or our God ON THEIR FOREHEADS".... 7:4 "And I heard the number of those who WERE SEALED, 144,000 SEALED from every tribe of the sons of Israel"
I don't know about you but I'm really excited knowing there is a seal already on my forehead! Even better, one of the definitions of "sealed" is incapable of being retracted or revoked; !!!
I talked about all this in a devotional I did at my last job and to help everyone remember it I gave each a mirror with "MINE" at the top so it looks like its on their forehead when they look in the mirror.... since I don't really know what the seal looks like "MINE" seemed right to me :-). On the other side I put the Ephesians 1:13 scripture.
