Welcome To BARAH MINISTRIES

a Christian Church

 
This is the testimony of John (the Baptist), when the Jews sent to him priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, “Who are you?”
 
And he (John the Baptist) confessed and did not deny, but confessed, “I am not the Christ (the Messiah).”
 
They (the priests and Levites from Jerusalem) asked him, “What then? Are you Elijah?” And he (John the Baptist) said, “I am not.” “Are you the Prophet?” And he (John the Baptist) answered, “No.”
 
Then they (the priests and Levites from Jerusalem) said to him (John the Baptist), “Who are you, so that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?”
 
He (John the Baptist) said, “I am A VOICE OF ONE CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS, ‘MAKE STRAIGHT THE WAY OF THE LORD,’ as Isaiah the prophet said.”
 
Now they had been sent from the Pharisees.//They asked him, and said to him, “Why then are you baptizing, if you are not the Christ (the Messiah), nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?”
 
John (the Baptist) answered them saying, “I baptize in water, but among you stands One whom you do not know.”
 
“It is He (the Lord Jesus Christ) who comes after me, the thong of whose sandal I am not worthy to untie.”
 
These things took place in Bethany beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing.
 
The next day he (John the Baptist) saw Jesus coming to him and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!”
 
“This is He (the Lord Jesus Christ) on behalf of whom I said, ‘After me comes a Man who has a higher rank than I, for He existed before me.’”
 
“I did not recognize Him, but so that He (the Lord Jesus Christ…the Messiah) might be manifested (made visible) to Israel, I came baptizing in water.”
 
John testified saying, “I have seen (God) the (Holy) Spirit descending as a dove out of heaven, and He (God the Holy Spirit) remained upon Him (the Lord Jesus Christ).”
 
“I did not recognize Him (the Lord Jesus Christ…the Messiah), but He (God the Father) who sent me to baptize in water said to me, ‘He upon whom you see (God) the (Holy) Spirit descending and remaining upon Him, this is the One who baptizes in the Holy Spirit.’”
 
“I (John the Baptist) myself have seen, and have testified that this is the Son of God.”

THE LORD’S SUPPER CELEBRATION

The Cross Takes Us from Suffering to Contentment 

(The Lord Jesus) Christ redeemed us from the curse of the (Mosaic) Law, having become a curse for us — for it is written, “CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO HANGS ON A TREE” —
 
“Greater (unconditional) love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.”
 
…and He Himself (the Lord Jesus Christ) bore our sins in His (own) body (His true humanity) on the Cross, so that we might die to (the sovereignty of the) sin (nature) and (and so that we might) live to (the sphere of absolute) righteousness; for by His wounds (on the Cross) you were healed.
 
And if (1) anyone sins (and we do), we have an Advocate (a paraclete) with (God) the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous;//and He Himself is the propitiation (the ONLY perfectly satisfactory payment) for our sins; and not for our sins only (as believers in Christ), but also for those (sins) of the whole world (unbelievers as well).
 
Therefore if (1) anyone is in (union with) Christ (and all believers in Christ are), he is a new creature (spiritual species); the (sovereignty of the) old (self) things passed away; behold, new (spiritual species) things have come.
 
Now all these things are from God (the Father), who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation,//namely, that God (the Father) was in (union with) Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He (God the Father) has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
 
THE LORD’S SUPPER
Enjoying the Elements
 
For I (Paul) received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus (Christ) in the night in which He was betrayed took bread; //and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “This is (and keeps on being) My body, which is (broken) for you; (keep on) do(ing) this in (the purpose of) remembrance of Me.”
 
In the same way He (the Lord Jesus Christ) took the cup (representing His death on the Cross) also after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant (testament) in (the sphere of) My blood (through spiritual and physical death); (keep on) do(ing) this, as often as you drink it, in (the purpose of) remembrance of Me.//For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.”

THE LORD’S SUPPER CELEBRATION

The Cross Takes Us from Suffering to Contentment 

 
Who has believed our message? And to whom has the (bare) arm of the (hard work of the) Lord been revealed?
 
For He (the Lord Jesus Christ) grew up before Him (God the Father) like a tender shoot, and like a root out of parched ground; He has no stately form or majesty that we should look upon Him, nor appearance that we should be attracted to Him.
 
He was despised and forsaken of men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; and like one from whom men hide their face He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.
 
Surely our griefs He Himself bore, and our sorrows He carried; yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
 
But He (the Lord Jesus Christ) was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are healed.
 
All of us like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him.
 
He (the Lord Jesus Christ) was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He did not open His mouth; like a lamb that is led to slaughter, and like a sheep that is silent before its shearers, so He did not 
open His mouth.
 
By oppression and judgment He was taken away (led to death); and as for His generation, who considered that He was cut off out of the land of the living for the transgression of my people, to whom the stroke was due?
 
His grave was assigned with wicked men (the two thieves crucified with Him), yet He was with a rich man (Joseph) in His death, because He had done no violence, nor was there any deceit in His mouth.
 
THE LORD’S SUFFERING 
Crucifixion on the Cross
Spiritual and Physical Death
Burial
 
Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory;//and he said to Him, “All these things I will give You, if You fall down and worship me.”
 
Then Jesus said to him, “Go, Satan! For it is written, ‘YOU SHALL WORSHIP THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND SERVE HIM ONLY.’”
 
After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in (union with) Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.
 
But the Lord (God the Father) was pleased to crush Him (the Lord Jesus Christ), (it was the Father’s will) putting Him (the Lord Jesus Christ) to grief; if He would render Himself as a guilt offering, He will see His offspring (believers in Christ), He will prolong His days (He lives eternally as the Son of God seated at the right hand of God the Father), and the good pleasure of the Lord will prosper in His hand (because of His obedience to God the Father’s will).
 
As a result of the anguish of His (the Lord Jesus Christ’s) soul, He (God the Father) will see it and be satisfied; by His knowledge the Righteous One, My Servant, will justify the many, as He will bear their iniquities.
 
Therefore, I (God the Father) will allot Him (the Lord Jesus Christ) a portion with the great, and He will divide the booty with the strong; because He (the Lord Jesus Christ) poured out Himself to death, and was numbered with the transgressors; yet He Himself bore the sin of many, and interceded for the transgressors.

CLOSING SONG
I Am 
 
“For I know the plans that I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.”
 
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you 
 
Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.
