GOOD,BETTER,BEST

I always love the saying, good, better, best. However, the only time we choose to use it, is when we lost something or someone. It is an effective quotation to hide our hurt, pain, and devastation. But if we look at it from a different perspective, there is a lot of truth behind the quote. I have been in situations where, I have lost a job I thought was good, then got a better one, lost that to get the best, with more money.

That’s why I stand on God’s word, and His promises, because,that’s when I realize that the quotation is true, it says:’And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose'(Romans 8:28). It’s always in losses, that God opens our eyes to see the blessings, He has in store for us, its then we see His grace, and mercies manifested, it’s then we should lose focus of the things, and people of this world, and focus on the only one who can see us through, and bring us out of the storms of life. Yes friends let me tell you, like it is: ‘we are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed   ( 2 Corinthians 4:8-9).  

 I  love Gladys Knight song but I have to re-write it to suit me, ‘If anyone should ever write my life story, for whatever reason, please tell them Jesus is the best thing that ever happen to me’. The world can’t top what Jesus did on Calvary, no man or woman, no job, no degree, nothing can beat out Gods best for us.

Let me reveal a little secret to you, when we are afflicted, talked about, and mistreated, it is for our consolation and salvation.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God   ( 2 Corinthians 1:3-7). ‘Finally, my brethren,rejoice in the Lord…beware of dogs, people who do evil, and the mutilations of the flesh, for we are the circumcision, who worship God in the spirit, so lets rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh'(Philippians 3:1-3). If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior, go immediately to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page and follow the instructions, don’t delay tomorrow might be too late, open up your heart and let the redeemer in, it will be the best thing you ever did, and the best gift you ever received.

I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to get His message out to His people, I pray it blesses you as it did me, and may you obey His will, and walk according to His ways in Jesus Name, amen.

WHO HE IS TO US

Just in case you never heard or you forgot, let me tell you about the God I serve:

He is my deliverer, He is my strength, He is my King of Kings, He is my Lord of Lords, He is my shield, He is my fortress, He is my redeemer, He is the great I AM. Do you know Him?

His mercy is everlasting, His truth is enduring, His grace is limitless, His love is unconditional, His peace surpasses all understanding, His joy only comes in the morning, Do you know Him?

He is Alpha and Omega, He is the Beginning and the End, He is the First and the Last, He is one of a kind, He does not report to no one, He is God all by Himself, Do you know Him?

He is Jehovah the Eternal one, He is Jehovah -Tsidkenu our righteousness, He is Jehovah-Jireh our provider, He is Jehovah-Shalom our peace, He is Jehovah-Nissi our banner, He is Jehovah-Shammah our present help, Do you know Him?

He is Omnipotent which is all-powerful, He Omniscient which is all-knowing, He is Omnipresent which means He is everywhere, Do you know him?

He is my comforter, He is my friend, He is my teacher, He is my guide, He is my healer, He is my doctor, He is my lawyer, He is my interpreter, He is my savior, Do you know Him?

He said, He will never leave me, nor forsake me ( Hebrew 13:5, Joshua 1:5), He said, He is my light, my salvation, and the strength of my life, so I must not be afraid (Psalm 27:1), He said, all things will work together for my good, just because I love Him(Romans 8:28), He said, I am more than a conqueror, because He loves me (Romans 8:37).

He told me to trust Him  with all my heart, and don’t depend on my own understanding, and to acknowledge Him, so that He can direct my path ( Proverbs 3:5-6), He assured me that nothing can separate me from His love ( Romans 8:38-39), He told me He is God, and beside Him there is no other (Isaiah 45:5), Do you know Him?

He told me that, His plans for me is prosperity, hope, and a future ( Jeremiah 29:11), He said, no weapons formed against me will ever prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against me in judgement will be condemned(Isaiah 54:17), Now do you want to know Him?

He told me, to tell you that, “Every good and perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variables, neither shadow of turning” (James 1:17), and He loves you so much that,”He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” ( John 3:16), He said, not to believe the hype, nor lies of the enemy, because He sent His son, not to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved (John 3:17), He also said, that His son is the only way to Him (John 14:6, John 8:32, Romans 5:21).

Listen, this is what is written about Jesus,”God hath highly exalted Him, and give Him a name, which is above every other Name. That at the Name of Jesus every knee will bow, and every tongue must confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God (Philippians 2:9-11), He never forsakes those that seek Him (Psalms 9:9-10, Matthew 6:33).

I give  God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to deliver His message to His people, I hope it blesses you as it did me.

IT WAS MURDER

It was premeditated murder. Can you imagine being murdered in broad daylight and in front of witnesses? My best friend was killed, or should I say murdered, actually He was executed. No matter which word you use or how you look at it, it is the same thing; murder. On top of the crime itself the people who did it had no shame or regret. What is sad is that He sacrificed His whole life so that others will have a better life. Yet all He did is not enough for some people. was it jealousy, greed, or just God’s will?

The Bible tells us in Romans 8:28 that, “All things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.” So is this considered justifiable homicide, because it was for the benefit of good over evil? “But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him, and with His stripes we are healed, all we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way, and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all” (Isaiah 53:5-6).

It’s amazing that celebrities who never did anything as dramatic as what happen to my friend get more praise and notoriety, than what my friend did on Calvary. Is He your friend also? If not He could be. Listen, He could have come down from the cross and saved Himself. He could have stopped the whole fiasco with one word, but He decided to die, just to save us so that we could live with Him forever in paradise. Wasn’t His death enough of a price or sacrifice to save, redeem, and liberate you?

What will it take? How long must He wait for you? How many hurricanes does God have to send to alert you? How many more messages does He have to send you? When will you see the light and be drawn to Him? Yes, Jesus was God sent. He wants you to accept Him, and believe that God raised Him from the dead? How many other friends do you think will die so you might live? There will be no more messiah to warn you? No one else is coming to save you? Jesus Christ paid it all.

If you want to be Jesus’ friend? If you want eternal life? If you want your name written in the book of life just go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. If you desire to know more about God, His only begotten son, to be His friend for life, and even study the Bible or get more information go to www.riversofrevival.com.
