Praise the Triune GOD for revealing this to us, Mandy! Such assurance of GOD’s unconditional and great love for us, giving us salvation, joy, and peace, among others! Truly, if the Creator is with us, we are assurred that He is there here, now or the next glorious life with Him.
Thank you Clark.
All praises to the Triune GOD who inspires us, Crissy! GOD’s peace to you too, a comforting and assuring peace like no other in the world. Confident in CHRIST JESUS! GOD bless you, Crissy!
God bless you my friend.
Likewise, Crissy, good night! A blessed day ahead my friend! 🙂
What amazing truth! That God gave His Son! And didn’t spare Him…eternally grateful
This verse, Jim, reminds us of the song, In CHRIST Alone. Particularly the wrath of GOD the FATHER towards all the sins, which His Son, JESUS (because of CHRIST’s love) was the receipient of that wrath on the cross. We are eternally grateful to the Triune GOD.
I love that song. First heard it in 2003 when I was heading to Iraq.
It was probably an emotional moment for you, Jim, hearing the song. Was it one of the instances that paved the way for you to be a pastor? Wait, it is 4:00 AM now in CA.
Yes 4 Am, I was staying up late to finish the outline that I posted in my blog, to teach it for tonight to a couple.
Jim, you have to compensate the resting part just to boost the immunity. “Because pastors have to” recharge. 👍
It was one of those moments that confirmed to me to be a pastor, yes! I was busy ministering and evangelizing during those days in the Marines
GOD gave you a direction indeed, Jim! It is hard to listen or communicate or even think of the Gospel when bullets, adrenaline, fear, distrust and more is on the air. Playing command and conquer: Generals at that time was stressful for me, how much the actual live rounds. You gave your country a great service and you also gave GOD a great service by evangelizing!
Thank you for that encouragement. It was the worst of times and it was the best of times…definitely won’t want to be in those situation again now lol. But God has been merciful and gracious.
True, Jim, for one, the battle ground changes from bullets to alleged Bible contradictions; from battle for the human life to battle for the human soul. War is not a desirable circumstance, how much more the Armageddon.
Amen! I am happy to be in spiritual warfare for God’s kingdom
It is an honor to be called by GOD to minister His flock according to GOD’s purpose. You will be excited with your reward in heaven, pastor!
And you too! I see the Lord using your blog it seems, more people liking the posts and more comments. I hope God uses it to plant seeds with the lost
Only the Triune GOD can allow these things; we can only do our part of (still, in GOD’s hands) being inspired by Him in writing or editing graphics. I’m praying that GOD will humble me throughout and reminding me of a roller coaster/boom and bust scenario in this limited blog time.
Fell asleep writing a post and just posted lol
Yes, Jim, it is a good post, showing the ills of fake news and false information by media, reminding us not to bare false witness. A call to action to discern. Thank you, pastor!
You’re welcome! Of course the most important thing is keeping the Good News front and center and the focus of our life and ministry. In a world of so much bad news, we need to proclaim the Good News Amen?
Amen! We have to be the light in this world! That no matter how terrible and unfair the world might be, they should cling to JESUS as Lord and Savior, accepting GOD’s grace by faith alone (in their respective heart, mind, and soul) and follow His way of loving GOD and neighbor; repenting when sinning.
By the way you just left the 50,000th comment on my blog! Thanks!
Thank GOD for reaching that much, Jim, in your blog! Btw, what is my reward, just kidding! 😉👍
If you live in US I would mail you something!
Hahaha. It is ok pastor. I’m just kidding.
lol I know. Good night for now!
8 hours of sleep then at 3am.
