Come Quickly, Lord
(Lk19:1-10)

God is merciful (Dt4:31; Neh9:31).
He has mercy on whom He has mercy (Ex33:19; Rm9:15), and
Shows mercy and redeems those who have hope in Him (Ps130:7-8).

Faith is welcoming and receiving His mercy (Jn1:12), and
The life of this faith is about laying down whatever hinders and passionately welcoming Him (Lk19:8)
In order to be welcomed in the dwelling place that He prepared (Jn14:2-3).

Since the prostitute Rahab showed kindness and welcomed the spies of Israel,
When the city of Jericho collapsed she and her family were shown kindness and saved (Jos2:12-14).

For all men became slaves of the devil after Adam sinned (2Pe2:19)
Only by the mercy of God the price could be paid and be delivered.

Although God sent Moses and delivered the Israelites from their slavery under the pharaoh,
It was only for their flesh and not perfect for
The blood of animal had no spiritual element and so their souls could not be redeemed.

While they were promised to be God’s people if they kept their covenant with Him (Ex19:5-6).
The Law also warned them that if anyone sinned
By two or three witnesses they were to be put to death without mercy (He10:28), and
It also commanded retribution (Nu5:7),
Life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth etc (Ex21:23-26).
Consequently, they had the spirit of servant to fear (Rm8:15).

Nevertheless, the mercy seat above the testimony inside the sanctuary (Ex25:22)
Reminded them of the mercy of God who commanded
The atoning sacrifice to shed blood for forgiveness (Lev16; He9:22)
Albeit it was neither perfect nor eternal (He9:1-4, 10).

Yeshua said, “Destroy this temple and I will raise it again in three days” (Jn2:19), because
Through the death and the resurrection of the temple of His body,
He would set aside the first covenant in Jehovah's name (He10:9) and
Establish a new covenant in the Father’s name Yeshua (Jn5:39) by shedding His blood as
The eternal, perfect atoning sacrifice (1Jn4:9-10) for
He is the Word in the beginning who became flesh (Jn1:1, 14)
To lay down His life as the Lamb of God (Jn1:29), a ransom for many (Mt20:28).

For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost (Mk2:17; Lk19:10),
He was always with “sinners” (Mt9:11-13).

As He died, He said, “It is finished” (Jn19:30), declaring that He:
1) Laid down His life and fulfilled the merciful Father’s will to redeem the souls of men Himself (Ps130:7-8; Lk23:34);
2) Judged the origin of sin (1Jn3:8); and
3) Paid the price of sin with His body and put to death the hostility of sin redeeming all men (Mt20:28; Eph2:16).

The Father raised Him up and
Yeshua entered the Father’s house in heaven and crowns with mercy (Ps103:4).

The Holy Spirit came in the name Yeshua
To those who Received the Father’s mercy, His blood and
He lets them passionately welcome the Lord (Jn1:10-12).

The Christian is he who confesses that
He has neither deed nor conscience to speak of and that
He is only a shameful sinner.
Therefore, he lays down his most precious if it hinders in receiving Him (Lk16:9; Php3:8) and
Gives his most valuable to Him if it could be used to please Him (Mk10:29-30) for
He longs to be shown the mercy in that day and
Be welcomed into the eternal dwelling place the Lord prepared (Jn14:2-3).

O Lord,
How You brought Your worthy blood to
Seek this unworthy lowly life.
What an honor!
I welcome You.
So come quickly, Lord! Come quickly!
Amen.
