Edifying the reader with solid foundational scriptural understanding aimed at rooting and grounding believers in faith in Christ for personal sanctification, through thoughtful and prayerful meditation on concurrent passages which focus on essential scriptural truths.
Very little occasional to no commentary will be included in the Daily Meditation and Consecration as it is intended for the reader to focus his/her being on Christ, looking to the Spirit of God to quicken the understanding. This is a time to consecrate one’s self in a dedicated act of worship to the Lord, as you read and meditate on the Words of Holy Scripture, and draw life from the Spirit of God in personal fellowship with Him.
Get alone, take communion, light a candle if you want, and set aside this time just for you and the Lord.
Supremacy of Christ
His Intention and Ability to Sanctify His Own
Hebrews 1 (AKJV)
1God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, 2Has in these last days spoken to us by his Son, whom he has appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; 3Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high: 4Being made so much better than the angels, as he has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
5For to which of the angels said he at any time, You are my Son, this day have I begotten you? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? 6And again, when he brings in the first-begotten into the world, he said, And let all the angels of God worship him. 7And of the angels he said, Who makes his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.
8But to the Son he said, Your throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of your kingdom. 9You have loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows.
10And, You, Lord, in the beginning have laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of your hands: 11They shall perish; but you remain; and they all shall wax old as does a garment; 12And as a clothing shall you fold them up, and they shall be changed: but you are the same, and your years shall not fail.
13But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool?
14Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
Colossians 1:15-23 (AKJV)
15Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
18And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. 19For it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell;
20And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things to himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
21And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now has he reconciled 22In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and blameless and unreproveable in his sight: 23If you continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which you have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;
American King James Version
Produced by Stone Engelbrite
This is a new translation of the Bible, based on the original King James Version. It is a simple word for word update from the King James English. I have taken care to change nothing doctrinally, but to simply update the spelling and vocabulary. I have not changed the grammar because that could alter it doctrinally.
I am hereby putting the American King James version of the Bible into the public domain on November 8, 1999.
