The Bridge Builder

Will Allen Dromgoole

An old man going a lone highway,

Came, at the evening cold and gray,

To a chasm vast and deep and wide.

Through which was flowing a sullen tide

The old man crossed in the twilight dim,

The sullen stream had no fear for him;

But he turned when safe on the other side

And built a bridge to span the tide.

 

“Old man,” said a fellow pilgrim near,

“You are wasting your strength with building here;

Your journey will end with the ending day,

You never again will pass this way;

You’ve crossed the chasm, deep and wide,

Why build this bridge at evening tide?”

 

The builder lifted his old gray head;

“Good friend, in the path I have come,” he said,

“There followed after me to-day

A youth whose feet must pass this way.

This chasm that has been as naught to me

To that fair-haired youth may a pitfall be;

He, too, must cross in the twilight dim;

Good friend, I am building this bridge for him!”

 

Who are you building a bridge for?

 

 

Ordinary People

Read Judges 6:11–16

‘But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all -surpassing power is from God and not from us.’ —2 Corinthians 4:7

Gideon was an ordinary person. He was a farmer, and a timid one at that. When God called him to deliver Israel from the Midianites, Gideon’s initial response was, “How can I save Israel? Indeed my clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my family” (Judges 6:15). God promised that He would be with Gideon and that he would be able to accomplish what he had been asked to do (v. 16). Gideon’s obedience brought victory to Israel Many others contributed in this plan to save the Israelites from a strong enemy force. God provided Gideon with three hundred men, valiant heroes all, to win the battle. We are not told their names, but their bravery and obedience are recorded in the Scriptures (Judges 7:5–23).

Today God is still calling ordinary people to do His work and assuring us that He will be with us as we do. Because we are ordinary people being used by God, it’s obvious that the power comes from God and not from us.

-Poh Fang

A prayer to be useful

 

 

Dear Lord, in such times make me an instrument of your peace. I may be ordinary but when I follow your commandments to love and serve others, you can use me a jar of clay to help others today ~ Amen our way ~ Amen

AUDIO SCOTUS LGBT Decision Will ‘Create a Tsunami of New Litigation’ Against Religious Groups

ROBERT KRAYCHIK 15 Jun 2020

The Supreme Court’s (SCOTUS) reinterpretation of a federal prohibition against employment discrimination based on sex — which now includes sexual orientation and “gender identity” — will “create a tsunami of new litigation” against religious organizations, explained Carrie Severino, president of the Judicial Crisis Network, offering her remarks on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with host Rebecca Mansour.

The Supreme Court’s legal redefinition of “sex” to include sexual orientation and “gender identity” opens the door for further left-wing lawfare against religious organizations, Severino noted.

Severino said, “The Supreme Court left a lot of really important issues open, like, how do you balance this with religious freedom? How do you balance it with freedom of speech? If you’ve got a law, for example, saying that using someone’s preferred pronoun is mandatory — or you can be fined [for non-compliance], how do we balance that with some of these other important and even constitutional questions? Those are things that, for the most part, are unfortunately going to be just decided by a whole range of lower courts. and it will be a long time before the Supreme Court even takes up the opportunity to weigh in on that.”

Severino predicted, “These questions are going to create a tsunami of new litigation and create a huge amount of uncertainty going forward.”

LISTEN:

The Supreme Court’s decision to extend prohibitions against employment discrimination to include sexual orientation and “gender identity” will place religious and traditional organizations at a legal disadvantage when they are inevitably sued by left-wing outfits.

“You’re going to see these decisions going overwhelmingly in favor of the litigants [and] the plaintiffs who are challenging any religious organization, or any school, or anyone who wants to maintain a traditional, biologically based, scientific-based understanding of sex,” Severino forecasted.

“The logic that the court embraced” sets in motion a legal momentum for lower courts to render future decisions in favor of plaintiffs suing religious and traditional organizations for their personnel decisions, Severino anticipated.

Mansour asked if religious organizations would surrender to left-wing activist groups filing lawsuits based on the Supreme Court’s decision given their insufficient resources to legally defend themselves.

Severino replied, “That’s part of the strategy of the activists because they know that many of these organizations can’t afford to pay for defense. They can’t afford to risk a negative judgment where they could face crippling fines. If you’re talking about individuals, you’ve seen what’s happened with cases like the Masterpiece Cake Shop case, where someone’s entire business and livelihood could be destroyed and where they can face even personal threats and real concern over their own safety if they are willing to carry on litigation.”

Severino added, “I think the intimidation factor of a lawsuit is huge, and when you’ve got the court almost inviting that, it’s going to present a real challenge for a lot of people. Practically speaking, for the most part, this isn’t even going to be an issue because I think there’s the vast majority of businesses don’t have any reason or desire to discriminate on either of these bases, but there are circumstances where it is either relevant to the job qualifications or where it’s going to be an issue of conscience, and those are the ones where you’re going to have people who are going to be forced to make those tough choices between violating their own conscience and possibly losing their livelihood.”

The Supreme Court’s decision amounted to a rewriting of civil rights legislation, Severino stated.

“This had to do with the court interpreting the Civil Rights Act of 1964,” Severino explained. “We’re kind of familiar with this language. It says that no employers can discriminate on the basis of sex, of religion, of natural origin, and other kinds of classic caveats that you have, but what their question was, ‘It says you can’t discriminate ion the basis of sex. Does that also mean you can’t discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity?’”

Severino continued, “It’s kind of a strange question to be asking because in so many states, now, and in many situations in federal law, we already do have laws preventing discrimination based on sexual orientation, but they never phrase it as ‘discrimination based on sex.’ It’s always explicitly written, ‘discrimination based on sexual orientation.’”

“What the Supreme Court did is, in an opinion, they basically just rewrote what that text said because there is a long-standing history where for decades, no politicians [and] no judge said that language meant sexual orientation, as well,” Severino added.

The Supreme Court’s decision usurps the role of legislators, Severino determined.

“That’s really a revisionist reading of the statute dressed up as textualism, and that’s one of the things that is so dangerous because we have laws that courts can effectively rewrite,” Severino concluded. “No legislator who passed [Title VII of the Civil Rights Act] would have thought it meant that.”

3 Things God Needs From Man!

April 24, 2020 hephzibahgarden

SIN is always in a waiting and hot-pursuit mode — forever desiring to rule man by making him fall. However, when does sin first begin the hunt? Right when a believer begins to offer weak praises or prayers; when he brings unacceptable offerings to God.

So then, what should we offer God? (Micah 6:8)

He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? Micah‬ ‭6:8‬.

3 things mentioned in this verse:

  1. Be Just (do justly)
  2. Merciful (love mercy)
  3. Humble (walk humbly with God)

We cannot BE any of these without following the Word of God in our daily lives. Let’s look into our lives and see — Is our sacrifice a living sacrifice? Is it holy? Is it good enough to be accepted by God? Are we walking in the fear of God? In the wisdom, knowledge and understanding from above?

REMEMBER: WE ARE CHOSEN TO BE HIS!🙌

The points mentioned above can only be possible if we love God. Heaven is not a distant dream for the believer because he is already getting there. He is sowing and reaping as God guides him daily. As he waits upon God to do His will. Jesus is coming for those who are doing the will of the Father. Just like Him. Praise the Lord!❤️

You Belong To The Family Of God

PASTOR RAY PATRICK  FEBRUARY 15, 2020

We all go through times when we feel lonely, or wonder where we belong. God designed family to always be a place of love and acceptance. Maybe you didn’t come from an environment like that, or maybe you’ve been away from your family. Maybe they are no longer around. God still desires to meet that need for family. He says, “He is the Father to the fatherless, and He places the solitary in families.” God wants to give you a circle of people you can trust, who will embrace and accept you.

If you are lonely or in need of a family today, ask God to meet that need and show you where you belong. Or, maybe you are the one who can open your home and heart to someone who is alone. The point is that God loves family. He designed family for a purpose. Jesus said in Matthew 12 that those who do God’s will are His family.

Today, if you are part of the family of God, you are never alone! He promises to never leave you nor forsake you. He promises to fill you with His peace and joy, so that you can live as an overcomer all the days of your life!

“God places the solitary in families…” (Psalm 68:6, NKJV)

Pray With Me

Yahweh, thank You for making me a part of Your family. Father, thank You for diminishing my loneliness and being my Father. Thank You for accepting and embracing me always, even when I embarrass You with my sinful behaviour. God, show me how I can reach out and be an example of family in someone else’s life, in Christ’s Name! Amen.

A NEW YOU: God can change impossible situations

PASTOR RAY PATRICK MARCH 17, 2020

Does this situation look impossible? It’s time to believe God for something that seems impossible? We serve a great and mighty God, and He can create something out of nothing! He can make a way when there seems to be no way. Before God spoke the world into existence, it was formless and void. If God can make the world out of nothing, He can take the empty places in your life and create something beautiful too.

Today, God can speak light into your darkest hour. He can take your formless dreams that seems to be fading and give them shape. He can resurrect your dormant gifts and talents! He can make your crooked places straight! Trust Him in all things, because He can make something out of nothing, there is nothing too hard for Him! trust Him at this time!

“The earth was formless and void…and God said, let there be light.” (Genesis 1:2–3, NASB)

Pray With Me

Yahweh, I trust that You will make a way where there seems to be no way. Father, thank You for forming my shapeless life. Now God, fill the void that is in my life today because of this world’s circumstances and instabilities. Please, I beg You, turn on the light in our darkness today. Give me Your peace and faith, and give me a vision of hope which is bigger than my now. I trust You in Christ’s Name! Amen.

VIDEO Ravi Zacharias Answers: What Good Is Prayer Right Now?

By Megan Briggs -March 26, 2020

Ben Shapiro Show

Apologist and speaker Ravi Zacharias has given his first interview since announcing that he has a rare form of cancer. Zacharias addressed his health and also the current situation with the coronavirus on the Ben Shapiro Show on Thursday, March 19, 2020. The apologist gave some advice for people of faith who are faced with the question (sometimes mockingly) “what good is prayer doing in our current situation?”

Those who mock prayer in times of crisis like these “do not understand what communion with God is really about,” Zacharias said.

Ravi Addresses Role of Prayer on Ben Shapiro Show

Host Ben Shapiro asked Zacharias what response he has to the question of the efficacy of prayer in times of global crises. Zacharias explained that prayer is sometimes seen as a slot machine, where people feel if they put the right words in a desired result will come out. But this is a mistaken view, he said. “Prayer to start with is communion with God.” It is not “bringing God to our beck and call, to align with what we want, as much as it is the process with which our hearts get conditioned to receive his will and come into alignment with what it is he has for us,” Zacharias explained. Instead of being a “control of God”, it is rather “a surrender to the will of God and the peace that comes in the process.”

Additionally, Zacharias said that prayer serves to shape the one praying and implied that it is therefore quite useful in times of crisis: “Prayer…helps us become better citizens and better people in community to understand and help those who are going through a tough time.”

How Believers Should Behave in Pandemics

Speaking more generally of the virus and the measures people have taken around the world to mitigate its impact, Zacharias urged believers to “combine our faith and trust in God with wisdom and common sense.” He went on, “trusting God doesn’t mean you’re careless in what you do; you have to protect your children and you have to protect your family and the elderly and the most vulnerable.”

Zacharias also warned that what often happens in times of crisis is people fall into one of two extremes: “Panic and fear on the one side and a complete indifference on the other side.”

“In America we get so used to comfort, so used to quick answers so used to quick analyses and all of this stuff, that when we’ve found something that’s out of our control it’s very daunting,” Zacharias said, commenting on the rising levels of anxiety people are experiencing.

As far as what believers should be working on at the moment, “I would just say to people be sober-minded about it, don’t be cavalier about it, and make sure at all times your life and your relationship with God and your family is strong. That’s what’s going to matter at the end of it all.”

The Plague of Morally Toxic Public Schools

In too many public schools, leftist indoctrination is corrupting young hearts and minds

Students with arms raised in classroom

BY CATHY RUSE | FEBRUARY 1, 2020

What would happen if a child were to spend most of his waking hours, during most of his formative years, in an institution bent on persuading him to adopt certain fundamental beliefs? 

There is no mystery here. Children are easy to manipulate. They are eager to please, especially in a school setting where their grades and future careers depend on it. The child would eventually yield to the days and years of pressure and embrace the beliefs thrust upon him.

But what if those fundamental beliefs were at war with his family’s?

We should be speaking in the present tense, for this is what happens today—every day—to Christian children in America. While their parents sleep.

Many of America’s public school systems have become morally toxic, especially for the hearts and minds of children from religious families. So say authors Mary Hasson and Theresa Farnan in their bracing and deeply researched new book, “Get Out Now: Why You Should Pull Your Child from Public School Before It’s Too Late.” The threat does not come from the dedicated teachers who are just trying to do their jobs but from progressive ideologues who have become our nation’s education elites.  

If you wonder why your fourth grader comes home sounding like a “social justice warrior,” you can thank the National Network of State Teachers of the Year for pushing a book list for elementary students with the themes of classism, racism, xenophobia, sexism and transgenderism.

Even while schools are becoming successful instruments for leftist social reform, they are failing at their core mission to educate children in basic academic subjects. The latest national assessment is “devastating,” says Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. Two-thirds of American students can’t read at grade level, and reading scores have worsened in 31 states. “This country is in a student achievement crisis, and over the past decade it has continued to worsen, especially for our most vulnerable students,” DeVos says. 

Sex education is the most obvious area for indoctrination. Well-funded international pressure groups have been extraordinarily successful at pushing “Comprehensive Sexuality Education” into American public schools, both in politically liberal and conservative regions. CSE promotes risky sexual behavior to vulnerable teens disguised as sexual “rights” and focuses on LGBTQ sexuality (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning) as a victim class. 

Lessons are carefully designed to encourage children to approve homosexual behavior and to reject the beliefs and the authority of their parents.

Examples are almost too graphic to print. Elementary children are taught that some people are born in the wrong body. Young teens are encouraged to experiment with anal and oral sex. High schoolers learn how to get secret abortions.

The indoctrination is not confined to sex ed lessons. The National Education Association wields tremendous power over the culture and character of America’s public schools. 

Last year they invited the largest LGBTQ activist group in the country to co-sponsor their Read Across America day. NEA President Lily Eskelsen Garcia brought Human Rights Campaign spokesman Sarah McBride, a man who identifies as a woman, to share his transgender journey with kindergartners at a Northern Virginia public school without their parents’ consent. (Parents found out, but the school made no apologies.)

Mission America has researched the various celebrations that public schools now place on their calendars and found 15 for the 2019-2020 school year that involve sexual propaganda. 

The third week of September was Bisexual Awareness Week, followed by Ally Week, during which students are pressured to declare themselves “allies” of students or teachers who identify as LGBTQ. National Coming Out Day was Oct. 11, and Oct. 16 was International Pronouns Day. 

Speaking of pronouns, school policies that force students and teachers to use “preferred pronouns” are on the rise. It can mean forcing students to use “she” for males or invented pronouns like “xe” for the would-be genderless. One fifth grade teacher in Florida wrote a letter to parents explaining that her pronouns were “they” and “them.” “I know it takes some practice for it to feel natural,” she wrote, but the kids will “catch on.” 

But it should never feel natural to call a single individual “they,” and no child should have to practice doing it. The transgender pronoun crusade must be taken seriously. Propaganda expert Stella Morabito says coercive speech practices have historically been used as a form of psychological manipulation. In public schools today, it is about enforcing conformity—conformity of feelings, attitudes, emotions, speech, beliefs and behavior. Nonconformity carries the threat of isolation—a terrifying notion to any child in school. 

But it’s even worse than that for observant Christians. To be forced to use false pronouns is to be forced to declare acceptance of what we know to be untrue—that people can have a gender that is different than their physical body. That is a denial of God’s purposeful creation, which is a denial of God Himself. When government schools force Christian students to do this, it is tantamount to forced conversion.

Marriage and family scholar Pat Fagan sees a disturbing parallel in history. He says Christian kids in public schools today are reminiscent of the Janissaries centuries ago—14th century Christian children who were captured by the Ottoman Empire, forced to convert and turned into an elite army to battle the forces of Christendom. 

Are children being converted and turned against their faith and families? It is difficult to conclude otherwise. Surveys show that college freshmen are less religious than ever—30% claim no religious belief. 

This is not the result of the influence of some radical college professor. These are incoming freshman. It must be the result of factors in their childhood and adolescence. A strong case can be made that it is the result of the cumulative influence of 12 years of American public education. 

Thirty years of surveys of over 100,000 children by the Nehemiah Institute show how decidedly Christian children who attend public schools lose their Christian worldview. 

Fewer than 5% of children in the United States are homeschooled today. Approximately 11% attend private schools. The vast majority of American children are educated in public schools. And from their ranks will come our future teachers, doctors, lawyers, even presidents. 

What happens in public schools really matters, to each student, to each family and to our nation. Because, as Abraham Lincoln said: “The philosophy of the schoolroom in one generation is the philosophy of the government in the next.” ©2020 Cathy Ruse

The Dumbing Down of Christianity

By Ethan Renoe -January 10, 2018

ignorant christians

I don’t think God wants us to be ignorant Christians.

The other day I was (surprise, surprise) in a coffee shop in the mountains, seated near the counter. A guy in his early 20s walked in wearing a TOOL shirt and a long ponytail. I could overhear his conversation as he approached the barista and they began chatting. Somehow it came up that she attends a Christian university and he clearly didn’t approve.

“Do they incorporate religion into all the classes there?” he asked. “Even the science classes? How does that work?”

She valiantly began explaining how they pray before every class and teach from a Christian worldview, but it soon became evident that she was being crushed in this conversation. He was well schooled in the writings of Dawkins, Hitchens and Nye and began doling out the punishment.

I use the word punishment because this poor barista has herself been punished by a church system which, for the past 200 years, has begun discarding intelligence within the church in favor of emotion, conversion experiences and passion. Ask most American Christians today any question deeper than “Does God love everyone?” and you’re bound to get some sort of response suggesting that that sort of discourse should be reserved for theological universities.

The other day a friend of mine said that he sees no merit in understanding Calvinism or Arminianism because he just wants to love God and love people. And it seems that the ball stops there for most ignorant Christians today. No need to know any more than that.

I would go so far as to say that there is even a fear in evangelical Christianity of knowledge. In my experience, this fear comes from one of two sources: People are scared that if they come to know too much, they’ll be like the Pharisees and will just become haughty and judgmental to others, thus weakening their love for God; or they’re afraid that they’ll learn too much and go off the deep end of liberalism and swim in the risky waters of universalism and other heresies.

Let’s Fight Being Ignorant Christians

We have replaced rich, robust theology in the church with emotional music and constant reminders that “God is love and loves you and He’s your personal Savior and loves your soul…” These words are great at bringing outsiders through the doors (because they’re true by and large) but poor at growing believers from being ignorant Christ into mature witnesses with rich understanding of the deep things of God.

I have found the opposite to be very true. I have found that the more I learn about God, His Word and theology that describes Him, the more I can love and worship Him, because now there is that much more to adore and be amazed by. If my ability to worship God is a fire, learning more about Him only adds more wood to the blaze. After all, if you really loved God, wouldn’t you want to learn as much about him as possible?

Our logic is pretty backward here.

Quite honestly, I’m exhausted by ignorant Christians who don’t want to learn more. It’s one thing to not know much about our faith, but another to have no desire to grow.

I’m saddened that atheists are so passionate about what they believe that they will read stacks of books in order to define their beliefs, while we are happy to float along the surface with a (no offense) ‘Hillsong-deep theology’ and call it good. And we wonder why people are leaving the church in droves! A church that offers only emotional, squishy feel-good theology is going to lose the long-term wrestling match to a well-read and convincing atheist nearly every time.

Puritan Cotton Mather wrote, “Ignorance is the Mother not of Devotion but of HERESY” (caps lock his).

The mushy-gushy can only last so long.

Just as a marriage cannot be sustained by the tumble of infatuation, a life of faith cannot be sustained by passionate emotion.

Yes, it may be a wonderful (and necessary) entryway, but without depth of knowledge and understanding, it will be “blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming” (Ephesians 4:14).

One of my theology professors is so passionate about this issue that he has brought up the same metaphor at least three times this semester. It goes something like this:

“Why do people say they want to ‘know God, but not know about Him? That is absolutely ludicrous!

Imagine if I told you ‘I love my wife, but I don’t know anything about her.’

You could ask me where she was born and I would shrug.

What type of music or food does she like?

I don’t know.

What color are her eyes?

No idea. But I love her.

See how insane that sounds? The more you come to know about someone, the more you are able to love them.”

Yet we have no problem remaining ignorant Christians, floating on the surface of our knowledge of God. And then we wonder why we have such trouble witnessing to others or describing what we believe, or why we believe it, to others.

J.P. Moreland, in his book Love the Lord Your God With All Your Minddemonstrates how the Second Great Awakening led to the beginning of emotional preaching and impassioned calls to a quick conversion experience, as opposed to a period of contemplation, learning and discovery of the Christian faith and doctrines. We live in the fallout of that style of thinking. Moreland writes, “The intellectually shallow, theologically illiterate form of Christianity…came to be part of the populist Christian religion that emerged.”

I was fascinated to learn that the church was once the place where believers came to learn deep theology and robust doctrine, but now that seems to be reserved only for biblical universities. Nowadays anyone can start a church, and as long as it’s engaging and entertaining enough, people will show up. Never mind if it’s true or not. (Case in point: The pastor of the largest church in America doesn’t even have a bachelor’s degree, much less a seminary degree and look where that leads…) This all helps me realize why people are seeing less and less need for the church. After the initial emotion has worn off, what does it really have to offer?

It should not only be pastors, authors and theologians who study what they believe, but all believers. Jesus Himself stated that the greatest commandment is to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength and MIND (Luke 10:27), yet we tend to overlook this last one and focus on the heart and soul. (Crossfitters throw ‘strength’ in the mix too, I guess.)

God paints an intense fate for those who neglect to grow in their understanding in Hosea 4:6 when he writes, “My people are destroyed for their lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you.”

So let’s not be ignorant Christians and get destroyed and rejected, eh?

It’s not too late for Christians to learn in their understanding of the holy. It’s not too late to learn the meaning and value of our creeds, doctrines and systems. There is merit in learning and understanding the deeper parts of our faith and I say we start sooner than later.

If you’re reading this and thinking, Gee, I would love to come to a deeper understanding of God but don’t know where to start, I’ll give a few great starting points here, but never hesitate to email me with more questions or comments! I’d love to talk more about these things. Additionally, if you’re reading this and thinking, Gee, I don’t really learn that much about the Bible or God at my church, it just kind of hypes me up, it may be time to change that. Begin by talking to your pastor about it before going church shopping!

Here are some books that are very easy to read and introduce us to cursory facets of the Christian faith:

Delighting in The Trinity: An Introduction to the Christian Faith by Michael Reeves

Desiring God: Meditations of a Christian Hedonist by John Piper

Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis

The New Lonely by me

(The last one isn’t theological, it’s just a really, really good book. ;})

Enjoy!

Trusting God For Healing!

March 30, 2020 hephzibahgarden

One aspect of truly loving God, is defined as completely relying on Him alone.

Dear child of God — God has called you and loved you so that you may put your trust entirely on Him 😇

Having said this, Divine healing is one such doctrine that teaches us to rely on the Love of the Father, the Grace of Lord Jesus Christ and the sweet fellowship of the Holy Spirit, for our healing. This means dependence on the wisdom of man nor the world, regarding health isn’t sought after. For a believer to obey and practice the teaching of Divine Healing, their faith on God needs to be steadfast so much so that come what may, they are willing even to give up their life for Jesus!

For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. Philippians‬ ‭1:21‬ — St.Paul.

Divine healing is a place of absolute surrender. A divine intervention is a sure expectation of any believer. That’s what faith is all about; leaning on God for provision.

The wilderness journey of the Israelites is a testament of God’s provision and care for His people — Sickness was healed on the go, food was provided from heaven, battles were won by praising and worship, they were walking in signs and wonders.

Even today, God is healing all those who keep trusting Him. Mighty miracles and wonders continue to manifest among all those who believe. Jesus’ shed blood brings us healing and feeling. Healing from sickness, mental, physical and emotional. Feeling, that’s founded in heaven; a much more confident walk with Jesus.

Therefore, embrace God’s healing today; let God do a deeper work of sanctification and transformation in you. He loves you, and will always take utmost care of you. Rely in Jesus alone. Let Gods love flourish in your heart and mind. Rise, for Jesus is going to appear, the day is at hand. Praise God!❤️

“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. Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.” Isaiah‬ ‭53:5, 10‬
