Happy Birthday Jesus! We celebrate the Lord’s birthday on the 25th of this month. Why not give Him the best gift ever – your life? You are that treasure and pearl of great price He finds, Who sells all that He has and purchases you with His precious blood. 1

“And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.” 2

A Glorious Response…

Happy Labor Day! If you are suffering under a load of religious responsibilities laid on you by others or condemnation, know that Jesus took all our sins upon Himself, so we could rest from this burden. He said,

"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” 1

fireworksHappy Independence Day! I think of that day in May 1975, when I think of independence; that day when Christ came into my heart, freeing me from a life of guilt and shame.

“For God says, ‘At just the right time, I heard you. On the day of salvation, I helped you.’ Indeed, the ‘right time’ is now. Today is the day of salvation.” 1

Mothers day 2019Happy Mother’s Day! It’s amazing how thousands of people come and go from the site surprised at how God could save and forgive such a one as I in Christ, even though His Word clearly states:

“God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise… As a result, no one can ever boast in the presence of God… Christ made us right with God; he made us pure and holy, and he freed us from sin.” 1

God loves you! We’re hearing from those around the world who are receiving the revelation of God’s love for healing. Won’t you receive His love today as you spend time on the site being encouraged to “…grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ”? 1

“Like newborn babies, you must crave pure spiritual milk so that you will grow into a full experience of salvation. Cry out for this nourishment, now that you have had a taste of the Lord’s kindness.” 2

mountain lakeWelcome! I quote John 3:16 often, where Jesus tells us how much God loves the world, but how about verse 17, where He tells us that he didn’t come to judge us. If anyone deserves His judgment, it is me, but listen to His words.

“For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” 1

Praise Reports…

So let us praise the Lord that he gave us this wonderful salvation, taking our judgment upon Himself. Trish writes,

Newyear2018Happy New Year! It takes 20/20 vision to be happy! The wisest man ever, other than Jesus Christ, King Solomon wrote: “Where there is no vision [redemptive revelation of God], the people perish: but he that keepeth the law [walks in love], happy is he.” 1

“In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.” 2

A Judge Responds…

“Having read your testimony, I wanted to write to you. It feels a bit strange to address, in person, someone who is a living (though notorious) historical figure. At age 61, I’m old enough to remember your crimes, which horrified me than and still do today. Even given the many factors which caused you to act the way that you did, your actions are still very difficult to understand.

Welcome! Fifty years ago this month, I came into agreement with the voice of a madman. Becoming one myself, that pact created massive pain, death and sorrow. Regretfully, the effects of the crimes resonate around the world to this day in the hearts and minds of society.

“But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!)” 1

fathersdayHappy Father’s Day! I thank God for my father, who is now in heaven waiting for me. But many of you didn’t know an earthly father, causing you to have doubt in a heavenly Father. Regardless, God loves you and wants you to come home. Jesus said,

“Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father’s home.” 1

cross easterOh Happy Day! Every day can be a day of rejoicing in Christ, who gave us His righteousness, peace and joy, through the power of His resurrection. As we bask in His love, we can’t help but celebrate His goodness that brought salvation to the world. The Apostle Paul asked,

“Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin?” 1

valentinesHappy Valentine’s Day! Let us not forget the four Greek words for love in God’s Divine Flow: agape is God’s unconditional love, phileo is brotherly love, and eros is erotic love, but storge or kindly affectionate love works with the other loves like the glue holding them together, making our experience of love complete.

“Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart.” 1

A Loving Response…

It’s always wonderful to receive praise reports like this one from Beau in Union County, South Carolina.

christmas2018Merry Christmas! Jesus was born to die for Adam’s sin, that had spread to all mankind. He took upon Himself sin’s judgment, giving us eternal life through His death, burial, and resurrection.

“…God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.” 1

valentinesHappy Valentine’s Day! Wouldn’t it be great if everyone was blessed and filled with happiness this Valentine’s Day? In God’s eyes we’re all blessed, because He views us through the blood of His Son, but in reality, so many are blinded, lost and defeated by the world.

“Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.” 1
