God's Highest Priority For Our Lives

Image
Romans 8:28

One of our greatest needs is to know that we are loved. Each one of us has to feel certain, deep down in our hearts, that someone loves us, care for us, and has our best interest at heart.

That is how God designed us. He wants us to know that He loves every one of us with a passionate intensity too deep for words. God created humans beings with fellowship in mind--first with Himself, then with others. But we cannot fully love one another until we have ourselves experienced the love of God. We experience His love when we willing surrender to His call to be our Savior, Lord and friend.

There are at least three reasons God seeks our surrender.

1. He loves us and desires our fellowship.

So long as we hold something back from God, we cannot know Him completely or fully Experience His love. when we surrender to Him, we get all of Him.

2. He wants our service for him to be effective and fruitful.

The more we get to know Him and love Jesus, the more effective our service will be. The cl…

A Voice From Beyond

In Memory Of A Soul

Come to be with us, We do not talk about our neighbors , for our voices are stilled, but we send out messages of warning to those who view our silent city----- the city in which others have placed us'

Oh how we would like to warn you not to cover your sins, but to confess and forsake them, that they may be blotted out of GOD's record. It is not all of life just to live; but to live again--- at peace with GOD and man. There is a great difference between those of us with Lazarus in Heaven and those of us with Dives in HELL. DO NOT wait until you come to be with us to repent BUT DO IT NOW; THERE IS NO BETTER TIME. Do it before you come here it will be to late then. we waited to long "O ETERNITY ! how long?" is our wail.

Oh take heed of GOD's messengers-- those who cease not to teach and preach JESUS CHRIST, GOD's only begotten Son, as crucified for our sins according to the scriptures, buried, but risen again from th…

GRACE OF GOD

TIS NOT BY WORKS THAT I HAVE BEEN REDEEMED,
BUT BY HIS BLOOD ALONE I AM SET FREE,
ONCE AND FOR ALL REDEMPTION WORK WAS FINISHED
WHEN JESUS SHED HIS BLOOD ON CALVARY
NO OTHER WAY IS OFFERED FOR SALVATION,
MY ONLY HOPE IS IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS;
TIS BY THE BLOOD I HAVE HIS PEACE WITHIN.



"EVER LIFT THY FACE UPON ME
AS I WORK AND WAIT FOR THEE
RESTING NEATH THY SMILE LORD JESUS
EARTH DARK SHADOWS FLEE,
BRIGHTNESS OF MY FATHERS GLORY
SUNSHINE OF MY FATHERS FACE
KEEP ME EVER TRUSTING RESTING
FILL ME WITH THY GRACE"

PAUL WAS ABLE TO SAY THAT HE WAS WHAT HE WAS BY THE GRACE OF GOD ( 1COR. 15:10). ANOTHER DEFINATION OF GODS GRACE IS HIS ACTIVE FAVOR BESTOWING THE GREATEST GIFT UPON THOSE WHO HAVE DESERVED THE GREATEST PUNISHMENT.

THE (SCIENTIFIC) DEATH OF JESUS CHRIST

At the age of 33, Jesus was condemned to the death penalty.

At the time crucifixion was the "worst" death. Only the worst criminals condemned to be crucified. Yet it was even more dreadful for Jesus, unlike other criminals condemned to death by crucifixion Jesus was to be nailed to the cross by His hands and feet.

Each nail was 6 to 8 inches long.

The nails were driven into His wrist. Not into His palms as is commonly portrayed. There's a tendon in the wrist that extends to the shoulder. The Roman guards knew that when the nails were being hammered into the wrist that tendon would tear and break, forcing Jesus to use His back muscles to support himself so that He could breath.

Both of His feet were nailed together. Thus He was forced to support Himself on the single nail that impaled His feet to the cross. Jesus could not support himself with His legs because of the pain so He was forced to alternate between arching His back then usi…
