Welcome to Seven Baskets




April 2017




Museum Pass counter --- 10,230 to date




Greetings:




                Mercy (Chesed) and Grace (Charis)
 
"            "I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant. Thy seed will I establish forever and build up thy throne to all generations ... my mercy (chesed) will I keep for him for evermore and my covenant shall stand fast with him. His seed also will I make to endure forever and his throne as the days of heaven. If his children forsake my law and walk not in my judgements, if they break my statutes and keep not my commandments, then will I visit their transgression with the rod and their iniquity with stripes. Never-the-less, my loving kindness (chesed) will I not utterly take from him nor suffer my faithfulness to fail. My covenant will I not break nor alter the thing that has gone out of my lips ... his seed shall endure forever ... "  
"
                   Psalm 89:3, 28-36a

"And when they were come to Jerusalem they were received of the church and of the apostles and elders and they declared all things that GOD had done with them ... and when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up and said unto them, Men and brethren, ye know how that a good while ago GOD made choice among us(Jews), that the Gentiles, by my mouth, should hear the word of the gospel and believe. And GOD, which knows the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Spirit even as HE did unto us(Jews). And put    no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith ... But we     believe that through the grace (charis) of the LORD JESUS CHRIST we shall  be saved, even as they."      

                 Acts 15: 4-11




     We realize our scripture portions are a bit lengthy this month. However, it is necessary in order to get a full orbed view of our subject.

       In our first quote, the Hebrew word 'chesed' is used in the previous writings to convey mercy or lovingkindness. Mercy is what is needed for the GUILTY. This was prior to the death, burial and resurrection of JESUS, the CHRIST of  GOD which would pay the penalty for all sin for all time. Since the sin of Adam, in any relations that GOD has with mankind, mercy ALWAYS comes first. This is because we are all sinners and cannot approach the holiness of GOD. Thus, mercy is NOT GETTING  what we deserve, because we all deserve eternal seperation(death) from GOD. It is also noteworthy that Psalm 89 is shown to be a maschil or teaching psalm. The reader should perk up when reading these lines because this type of psalm conveys doctrinal import.

             Our second quote continues the thought that mankind still sins and carries this nature until our bodies are made incorruptible. Grace is what is needed for those who are redeemed but still sin. This illustrates the condition of GETTING something that you DON'T DESERVE. Even though we still sin we cannot be condemned(see 1st John 3:9). With this unearned favor, the LORD shows HIS unbridled generosity and love for us.

             Lastly, because April is Passover month, we encourage all to take a fresh look at these terms and begin to realize what JESUS has really done for us. HE gave Himself for us without reservation and that with eternal consequence. Through the expanse of the Bible, this is confirmed over and over again. Praise the LORD for His unspeakable gift.

     Our first quote relates the sure promise from the LORD that the Jews (descendants of Abraham) still hold a special, chosen relationship with GOD. Then, those who interact with them will either gain or lose according to their handling of the situation. We believe this promise is still in place today.
