Good morning all!
I do pray that you all are well and are staying safe in GOD’s hands. I do hope that in these days and times that you all are staying in the word. Share the word of GOD with others as for we do not know when GOD will send His son JESUS to return to earth. To save all of us who truly do love GOD and HIS son JESUS.
GOD is pure unconditional perfect love. Thru HIS son JESUS we do see this. We see it in the words in the Bible showing us how HE protects all who do truly love GOD. For those who have accepted JESUS in their hearts .
As I go through life, I always find myself so amazed at how some people would rather depend on the ways of the world. The ways that man has created rather than what our loving GOD in heaven has for us to keep us safe.
See the ways of the world will confuse and lie to all people, saying what is morally right by GOD is wrong. Meaning that all that GOD has said about sin is not truThat we can live as how we want to and not listen to the bible because it is a story. Or that it is old-fashioned, and people are different now. We all know that GOD will not change HIS laws to suit the wicked ways of mankind. This is freedom of choice that GOD allows us to have, be it we do wrong or right. And with freedom of choice we will all have to answer for what we do.
Evil is old-fashioned because it was here with satan before mankind was created. So think about it. Read and study the word. There was a great war in heaven, and Lucifer was kicked out of heaven because he wanted to take over heaven and run it his way.
Evil lost then, and it will lose again when judgment comes and we all are judged.
Like a child pulling away from the hand of a loving Dad or Mom to do what they want running right into traffic to get hit by a speeding car, or to the edge of a high cliff to fall to their death.
This sounds horrible, but this about right as to what we humans will do at times. We make the choices of the world that man has created. So when it will not work, then we get mad at the world and want to get even with the whole world for what choice was made. But it was your choice to live the way of the world and turn away from what GOD was trying to have you avoid from getting hurt.
GOD’s way will not have you to get hurt. How can a loving FATHER GOD do this? When we obey GOD as best we humanly can in our mind , soul and heart life is far way better. It is better because when you do what is right it pleases GOD. ANd we are blessed. Yes we will have some hardships in life, but this was also said so in the word that w would becasue we are followers of Christ.
JESUS is an example of how to live as mankind on GODS earth. He kept His faith in GOD until the last breath HE gave on GOD’s earth. He forgave all of HIS haters and enemies and did so even while HE was nailed on the cross!
I ask you to read this chapter and with doing so , go back then to verse 40 to 43. There you will see even as on the cross near the 6th hour when JESUS gave up the ghost he saved one other person who was to die with HIM.
I tell you all there is no person on this earth who could do what JESUS has done for all mankind. GOD’s way is the highway to heaven with JESUS at the wheel of the bus, car, train, pilot of the plane or whatever mans of transportation……JESUS is the guide and key to heavens gate!
Let us all follow JESUS, and HIS teachings. We all need JESUS.
Luke 23 King James Version (KJV)
23 And the whole multitude of them arose, and led him unto Pilate.
2 And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying that he himself is Christ a King.
3 And Pilate asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answered him and said, Thou sayest it.
4 Then said Pilate to the chief priests and to the people, I find no fault in this man.
5 And they were the more fierce, saying, He stirreth up the people, teaching throughout all Jewry, beginning from Galilee to this place.
6 When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a Galilaean.
7 And as soon as he knew that he belonged unto Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem at that time.
8 And when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad: for he was desirous to see him of a long season, because he had heard many things of him; and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by him.
9 Then he questioned with him in many words; but he answered him nothing.
10 And the chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently accused him.
11 And Herod with his men of war set him at nought, and mocked him, and arrayed him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him again to Pilate.
12 And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together: for before they were at enmity between themselves.
13 And Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people,
14 Said unto them, Ye have brought this man unto me, as one that perverteth the people: and, behold, I, having examined him before you, have found no fault in this man touching those things whereof ye accuse him:
15 No, nor yet Herod: for I sent you to him; and, lo, nothing worthy of death is done unto him.
16 I will therefore chastise him, and release him.
17 (For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.)
18 And they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this man, and release unto us Barabbas:
19 (Who for a certain sedition made in the city, and for murder, was cast into prison.)
20 Pilate therefore, willing to release Jesus, spake again to them.
21 But they cried, saying, Crucify him, crucify him.
22 And he said unto them the third time, Why, what evil hath he done? I have found no cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise him, and let him go.
23 And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief priests prevailed.
24 And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required.
25 And he released unto them him that for sedition and murder was cast into prison, whom they had desired; but he delivered Jesus to their will.
26 And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the cross, that he might bear it after Jesus.
27 And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him.
28 But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.
29 For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck.
30 Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.
31 For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?
32 And there were also two other, malefactors, led with him to be put to death.
33 And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.
34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.
35 And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them derided him, saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, the chosen of God.
36 And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him vinegar,
37 And saying, If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself.
38 And a superscription also was written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, This Is The King Of The Jews.
39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.
40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?
41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.
42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.
44 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.
45 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.
46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.
47 Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man.
48 And all the people that came together to that sight, beholding the things which were done, smote their breasts, and returned.
49 And all his acquaintance, and the women that followed him from Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these things.
50 And, behold, there was a man named Joseph, a counsellor; and he was a good man, and a just:
51 (The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them;) he was of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews: who also himself waited for the kingdom of God.
52 This man went unto Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus.
53 And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid.
54 And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath drew on.
55 And the women also, which came with him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the sepulchre, and how his body was laid.
56 And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment.
