SUFFERING FOR OUR GOOD

There was nothing beautiful or majestic about His appearance, nothing that would stimulate our desire for Him. He was despised and rejected by men, a humanitarian of sorrows, and acquainted with suffering and grief. We turned our backs on Him, and looked the other way when He went by, He was despised and we didn’t care. Yet it was our sins, griefs, and weaknesses He carried; it was our burdens, sorrows, problems that weighed Him down. He knew no sin, but we in ignorance, and stupidity thought it was his own sins, that He was getting punished for, by God.

But He was wounded and crushed for our sins, He was bruised, and beaten for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him; and by His stripes we are healed. Now in the latter days, we are like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way: your own denominations, your own doctrines, your own philosophy, your own religion, your own church, etc. forgetting that there is one God,(the true and living God) and the Lord laid on Him the iniquities, guilt, and sins of us all. He was oppressed, and afflicted, yet He did not open His mouth, He was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and like a sheep before its shearers is silent, He did not open His mouth (Isaiah 53:2-7).

But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, now crowned with glory and honor, because He suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone, this is an all-inclusive list: Jesus died for the Jews, Greeks, gentiles, whites, blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Japanese, everyone. And it was only right that God, who made everything, and for whom everything was made, should bring all His children to glory, through the suffering of Jesus Christ, God made Jesus the perfect leader, fit enough to bring everyone into salvation, this includes all nationality, color, and creed, no one is left out (Hebrews 2:9-10). So there is no excuse, Christ suffered for the sins of the just, and unjust, that He might bring everyone to God, yes, He was put to death in the flesh, but, made alive by the spirit (1 Peter 3:18). God sent Jesus to make, and show us the way to Him, and guarantee us,everlasting life (John 3:16-17, John  14:6), now the choice is all yours.

Friends, He could have come down off the cross, and saved Himself, but He decided to die just to save us. If you don’t know God or Jesus, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, it will be the best decision you ever make, and your life expectancy will change from damnation to infinity. He took our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness; by whose stripes we are healed(1 Peter 2:24). 

I give my Heavenly Father, the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to get His message out. I pray it edify(s) and blesses you as it did me, and that you will allow Him to lead, and guide you down the right path to do His will, in Jesus Name, amen.

KNOWING GODS WILL

To know Gods will, you must first know Him; to know Him, you must know His word, and follow the word, which is His only begotten son Jesus Christ, who came to introduce us to the true, and living God (John 1:1-14). ‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son’ (John 3:16-17), so now we know, that it’s not Gods will for anyone to perish, but for all of us to have eternal life.

To truly know Gods will, there are certain criteria, we must follow: we must accept the gift of His son Jesus Christ(John 14:6), we need to confess our sins, and ask for forgiveness(repentance)(1 John 1:9,Proverbs 28:13), we must seek Him, and His righteousness first (Matthew 6:33).

To be righteous, you must be in right standing with God (Romans 8:10,2 Corinthians 5:21). To be in right standing with God, you must deny yourself, obey His commands and will. You see folks to know God’s will you must know Him, and the power of His might (Psalm 46:8-10). In all your ways, you must acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path(Proverbs 3:6), we know His will when we study His word, ‘study to show yourself approved unto God’ (2 timothy 2:15), we know His will through prayers, ‘confess our faults, and pray for each other, that we may be healed, the effectual fervent prayer of the righteous person availeth much'(James 5:16). ‘For I know the plans I have for you’, says the Lord,’plans to prosper you, and not to hurt you, plans to give you hope, and a future.Then you will call upon me,and go pray to me, and I will listen to you, you will seek me, and find me, when you search for me with all your heart, I will be found by you’, says the Lord,’and will bring you back from captivity’..(Jeremiah 29:11-14).

For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and His ears are open, unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil (1 Peter 3:12). Friends you must trust in the Lord with all your hearts ,and never, ever rely on your own understanding, or your friends (Proverbs 3:5-6). This is the only way you will prove, what is that good, acceptable, and perfect will of God (Romans 12:2). Friends if you seek Him, pray, fast, repent daily, stay in righteousness, meditate on His word, cast down every knowledge, and thought that is not of God, or in His word (the Holy Bible), you will know Gods will, and His plans for you.

If for whatever reason, you don’t know God, His gift of His only begotten son Jesus the Christ, then go to the top of this blog, click onto the salvation page, and follow the instructions, it will be the best thing you ever do, in your entire life. I give God, the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to release His message, to the saved, and unsaved, I pray they will be obedient to His will, and ways in Jesus Name, amen.
