Psalm 68:18-23 (NKJV) 18 You have ascended on high, You have led captivity captive; You have received gifts among men, Even from the rebellious, That the Lord God might dwell there. 19 Blessed be the Lord, Who daily loads us with benefits, The God of our salvation! Selah 20 Our God is the God of salvation; And to God the Lord belong escapes from death. 21 But God will wound the head of His enemies, The hairy scalp of the one who still goes on in his trespasses. 22 The Lord said, “I will bring back from Bashan, I will bring them back from the depths of the sea, 23 That your foot may crush them in blood, And the tongues of your dogs may have their portion from your enemies.”

When the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to heaven He took with Him all those saints of the past who were in paradise. For our Lord paid for their redemption when He died on the cross. He took them into the presence of God. And our Lord gave gifts to men on earth. So that today Christ carries on His work through those to whom by the Holy Spirit have been given spiritual gifts. Every person in the body of Christ has a gift through which Christ carries on His work today. Christ “bears our burdens and wins us the victory,” for He is the God of our salvation. Praise God for He has the power to deliver us from death. In spite of what the devil may try to do, he will fail. Just as the antichrist will fail. For God will bring His people through the trials and tribulation, and the great tribulation as well. Christ will restore His people and the faithful remnant of Israel. Christ will crush His foes, those who rebel in their lawlessness and those who carry on in their wickedness. The sinful and the enemies of Israel will not be able to hide from the Lord. He will find them and they will be judged. So, fear not my friend, God will bring you through your trials and tribulations. Christ has already won the victory for you. The Lord will delivery you. Put your trust in Christ, and let Him work through you, that He may show those around you His mercies and grace, in that all who trust in Him shall be saved.

God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
