Jesus Who?

Who is Jesus?
“The sacred writings (of the Jews) contain preliminary reports by the prophets on God’s Son. Jesus’ descent from David roots Him in history (as man). Jesus’ unique identity as the Son of God was shown by the Spirit when Jesus was raised from the dead, setting Him apart as the Messiah, our Savior.” Romans 1:1-7 “Christ arrives right on time…He didn’t and doesn’t wait for us to get ready (or be good). He presented Himself for this sacrificial death when we were far to weak and sinful to do anything to get ourselves ready. But God put His love on the line for us by offering His Son in sacrificial death while we were of no use whatever to Him. Through Him we receive the generous gift of HIS LIFE. You are who you are through this gift and the call of Jesus Christ. This is the extraordinary Message of God’s powerful plan to rescue everyone who trusts Him. The person in right standing before God by trusting Him REALLY LIVES.” Romans 1:16,5:7-8(the Message). Jesus is completely man and completely God. He gives us the gift of His life so the we can completely live.

God gives us His Oath and His Promise!!! GRAB ON

Because of His Promise and His Oath. These two things God gives so that we can have faith and patience. Hebrews 6:10-20 “For God is not unfair. He will not forget how hard you have worked for Him and how you have shown your love for Him by caring for others…So God has given us both His Promise and His Oath…Therefore we who have FLED TO HIM FOR REFUGE can take New Courage, for we can hold on to His Promise with confidence. This confidence is like a strong and trustworthy Anchor for our souls. It leads us…into the presence of God’s inner sanctuary.”(NLT) Because of God’s promise and His oath, we can run for our lives to God. We can grab on to His promise of hope with both hands and never let go. This unbreakable lifeline takes us into the very presence of God. And Jesus, with His blood, is already there. Hang on with faith and patience, given to us by God

You were planned and made special!

God created and crafted YOU
“From one man (Adam) He made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and He determined the time set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek Him and perhaps reach out to Him and find Him, though HE IS NOT FAR from each one of us. FOR IN HIM WE LIVE AND MOVE AND HAVE OUR BEING. We are His offspring.” Acts 17:24-28(NIV). “But now, the Lord who created you says ‘Do not be afraid for I have ransomed you, I have called you by name; you are mine” Isaiah 43:1(NLT) “Listen to Me…I created you and have cared for you since before you were born. I will be your God throughout your lifetime-until your hair is white with age. I made you and I will care for you. I will carry you along and save you.” Isaiah 46:3-4(NLT). There are no accidental lives. God is in our every breath. Reach out to Him and you will find Him.

Do you Know? Are you Sure!

Knowing!
My purpose in writing is simply this: that you who believe in God’s Son will KNOW beyond the shadow of a doubt that you have eternal life, the reality and not the illusion. And how bold and free we then become in his presence, freely asking according to his will, sure that he’s listening. And if we’re CONFIDENT that he’s listening, we KNOW that what we’ve asked for is as good as ours.

And we KNOW that the Son of God came so we could recognize and understand the truth of God—WHAT A GIFT!—and we are living in the Truth itself, in God’s Son, Jesus Christ. This Jesus is both True God and Real Life. 1John 4:13-21 (The Message).

Jesus calls you by name

Me? Isaiah 43:1″The Lord who created you says: Do not be afraid for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; You Are Mine!” (NLT) 1 Thessalonians 1:2-5 “God not only loves you very much but also has put His hand on you for something special…The Holy Spirit put steel on your convictions.”(The Message). God tells us to work, labor, and endure. How? 1 Thes. 1:2 it is “the work of faith, the labor of love and the endurance of hope in following our Master, Jesus Christ.” Faith produces work. Love eases the labor. We endure all things because Christ is our SURE HOPE. Isaiah 43:10″ But you are my witnesses…And you are my servant. Your have been chosen to know me, believe me, and understand that I alone am God. ” Isa. 45:3 “I am the Lord the one who calls you by name.” Isa. 41:16″ And the joy of the Lord will fill you to overflowing.” Worship the Lord. He called you by name.

Do you live in the past, present or future?

Don’t live in the Present. Don’t live in the past or the future. LIVE IN CHRIST. John 15:4-17 “LIVE IN ME. Make your home in me just as I do in you…When you are joined with me and I with you, the relationship is intimate and the harvest is sure to be abundant… But if you make yourselves at home with me and my words are at home in you, you can be sure that whatever you ask will be listened to and acted upon. THIS IS HOW MY FATHER SHOWS WHO HE IS…Make yourselves at home in my love. If you keep my commands you will remain intimately at home in my love. I’ve told you these things for a purpose, that MY JOY might be YOUR JOY, and your joy wholly mature… I’m no longer calling you servants…No, I’ve named you FRIEND.” Turn your eyes upon Jesus. Look full in His wonderful face and the things of this world will grow strangely dim… Have a great day living in Jesus.

Is Conservative Christianity White?

I was told that due to the last election that conservative christianity had to change because it is too white. I was really suprised and confused. I thought that Jesus Christ died for ALL. What do you think?
