Jesus Christ

Post by daphanie02 on Sat Aug 30, 2008 9:34 am

How do I begin to describe Jesus Christ our Lord? Jesus took our every sin to the cross; when he died God forsook him because of the sins of the world(Mark 15:34) "He was peirced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniqities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him and by his wounds we are healed." (Isaiah 53:5) Jesus is the best friend you will ever have, he knows you better than you know yourself because He thought of you when the earth began. The Lord has a plan for every life and Jesus will lead you to where he wants you to be. He has plans to prosper you and not to harm you..plans to give you a hope and a future. Jesus is LOVE. Romans 10:9-11 says:"That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. As the Scripture says, "Anyone who trusts in him will NEVER be put to shame."

What an awesome God we serve! He loves the whole world so much that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.(John 3:16)

If anyone would like to put a testimony of how Jesus saved you, go ahead! Let the world know who Jesus is! If it wont let you post then contact me or Mia.
Love in Christ,
Daph

Our Father Jesus is a loving Father to his sons and daughters. As children of God we are loved unconditionally and he prays and intercedes for us with deep pangs. As children of God we can feel God's love always, and He has eclectic taste in friends and He loves us all equally and we are promised to be truly loved, not like worldy parents but like your Rich Relative Jesus loves us. Our father Jesus is abounding in love and faithfulness Exodus 34:6. Abounding in love and forgiving in sin Numbers 14:18 is our Father Jesus.
He promises to bless us.

Our God "Abba" "Yahweh"or "Yeshua", which ever you prefer to call HIM is NOT a respector of persons for anyone. All i want to say is that what HE does for one HE Will do for another. Don't be afraid to ask... Just expect to recieve. In the holy name of the King of Kings and Lord of All. The Holy Son Of God. Jesus, Yeshua amen.

One day I was reading through Matthew in one sitting and so I read straight through the chapter breaks and largely ignored the headings and for the first time this struck me:

Matthew 14

1 At that time Herod the tetrarch heard the reports about Jesus, 2 and he said to his attendants, “This is John the Baptist; he has risen from the dead! That is why miraculous powers are at work in him.”

3 Now Herod had arrested John and bound him and put him in prison because of Herodias, his brother Philip’s wife, 4 for John had been saying to him: “It is not lawful for you to have her.” 5 Herod wanted to kill John, but he was afraid of the people, because they considered John a prophet.

6 On Herod’s birthday the daughter of Herodias danced for the guests and pleased Herod so much 7 that he promised with an oath to give her whatever she asked. 8 Prompted by her mother, she said, “Give me here on a platter the head of John the Baptist.” 9 The king was distressed, but because of his oaths and his dinner guests, he ordered that her request be granted 10 and had John beheaded in the prison. 11 His head was brought in on a platter and given to the girl, who carried it to her mother. 12 John’s disciples came and took his body and buried it. Then they went and told Jesus.

13 When Jesus heard what had happened, he withdrew by boat privately to a solitary place.
Hearing of this, the crowds followed him on foot from the towns. 14 When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick.

15 As evening approached, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food.”

16 Jesus replied, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.”

17 “We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish,” they answered.

18 “Bring them here to me,” he said. 19 And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. 20 They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. 21 The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.

The parts in red and blue are what hit me most that day.... (I have taken out the headings)

This is my God: The one who can respond with compassion when a crowd follows him, even when he was looking for time out after the death of his cousin.

If it were me, I'd have said "can't you leave me alone for one day!" I totally get the first response to the news of John's death.... it is the second response that brings tears of love to my eyes.

He healed their sick and fed the five thousand from that place.... that is who he is.

My Savior

Post by KNT1106 on Mon Jun 27, 2011 1:48 pm

Before I truly started to believe in God and obey Him my life was filled with lust, drugs, lies, and laziness. The night, and I remember cleary, I began to live for God was the night one of my grandmothers past. I was high and a friend was with me. Earlier that night I had visited her for the last time.

I got the news she had past, not to live with the Lord unfortunately, around 11pm on new years eve 2005. I immediately prayed with my friend nearby, even though I was high God answered and cleared my mind enough to cope. I was up all night and the next morning I gathered ALL of my drugs, drug accessories, filthy music, pornography, my marijuana plant, and even the trinket boxes I kept some of this stuff in. I put it ALL in the backyard fireplace, poured gas on it, and burned it up!!

Reflecting back, God honored that burning and cleared the path for my return to Him. See, I had beleived in Christ when I was about 12 years of age. But I went WAY off-course and at times completely forgotten about my faith. Finally ten years later, I'm remembering Gods promises.

By no means was I completely santified over night. HA! I had much trouble with marijuana and pornography, but my perspective was different. I loved God enough (just) that these vices BEGAN to let go of me. If I had given myself up COMPLETELY to God, than I am sure that these things would have been gone in a jiffy....But I was luke warm, and I could tell because I was still wrapped up in my old ways, just a little bit less.

But then I met my beautiful wife and hope came! After dating for a while, we were at a crossroads. We could either stay together, or split up and say fairwell. Neither one of us were in the mood for a "lite" relationship. As it turns out I propose, she accepts, and we marry!!!! One thing she mentioned prior to all of this was "I cannot be in a relationship with a person who is addicted to ANY drug or alchohol. If you want to marry me, you cannot smoke pot anymore!".....what a wonderful thing, right? I gave up marijuana to marry the woman who loved me when I wasn't all that loveable! Well the drugs are no longer part of my life, but I quit to please HER, not GOD. So there was a transitional period that I struggled with. There were some fights, but progress was made and eventually stopped smokin weed.

But I didn't feel the blessing as when I had burned all that crap to get closer to God. God still brought me out of it, but if I had done it to honor Him and not please my future wife, things would have been MUCH smoother.

To present we are little bit un-equally yolked, but both believe in the Lord! We have just bought a home and believe to have found a church home!

Reflecting back I would say to my brothers and sisters in Christ........As much as you need to believe in Jesus, you need to be aware how much faith you put in Him. Just be aware, I cant say comfortably to "dig deep, find more faith!".....just doesn't seem right. Plainly, be aware of how much faith you put in Jesus and see how much smoother blessings come when the come and how much less stressed out you get when trials come. Both will come and go, my experiences teach me they come and go smoother the more we trust in our Savior.

By the way I can say more confidently that I make choices and take actions to please God more than anybody else. I was trying to fix myself before and it really worked out just barely. I am growing in Christ, and I encourage all of you who believe to let God do the work, not yourself!

To God be the glory!

~Hey all,

What Awesome testimonys you have given! I have one too. LOL. I was brought to the Lord at the ripe old age of 10 at a Billy Graham Revival! I remember I was scared to death but I went anyway. My background is that I was placed in Foster Home at the age of 5 and I am one of 10 siblings. I was in many homes and all of them either molested me or beat me. Needless to say my confidence in the Lord grew very dim and my direction in life went way off track. I tried it all...sex, drugs, rock and roll. I look back now and think to myself how did I come out of this alive. It was a miracle of that I am sure! You know the enemy was trying to keep me from my destiny in the Lord! The big fat weenie! Well many years later with many other trials to stack up on top of all the stuff I had gone through....I could go on here but not enough time....so to make a long story short, I married my current husband and one day we went to a prayer meeting. I was like, no way, I don't want to go. Hubby talked me into it so I went. At this meeting that was at his sisters home, there was a lady giving a bible study. At the end of the study she was praying with each person individually and asked me if I wanted her to pray a blessing over me. I said sure why not, I'll take a blessing. Anyway she layed her hands on me and then started telling me that God knew my pain and my distress. He knew my sorrow. I started crying and the next thing I knew I was getting up off the floor proclaiming I had given my life to Christ. I said not one word to her or to the Lord but praise God he knows our heart and I had given it to him. Later on that week I prayed to receive the filling of the Holy Spirit and about 4 days later as I was sitting on my couch at home, SUDDENLY the Holy Spirit came upon me. I have not been the same since. I don't walk the same, talk the same, don't think the same, or even act the same. I am a new creature. I am so blessed and that day had a hunger for the Word I could not quench. I am still hungery.

I had many faults, as many of us do. I am a sinner. Thanks be to God for the shed blood of Jesus Christ and for his precious Holy Spirit and for his mercy which never ends. Also praise God for his grace which brought me to the cross and his grace after the cross. I am redeemed by the blood of the lamb and the Word of my testimony.

Love in Jesus,

Connie
