Religion article written by Dr. Bob Allen:
Father God wants you to understand and believe, above all things, His perfect love for you, and to understand the price He paid for you. This love never runs out, but goes beyond all knowledge, and all understanding. This Love is for you today; this love is yours.
I want you to see how Father God had you in mind when He spoke to David about a thousand years before Jesus was ever born. Even before you were born, your sins were covered. Look what David prophesied about Jesus concerning you somewhere around 1013 BC:
Notice how the Father had the plan to redeem you from the very beginning; I believe from the very fall of Adam. If you watch God’s plan unfold step by step, line upon line, You can’t help but feel secure in His wonderful love.
Psalms 22:1-8 over a thousand years before The birth of Jesus, King David spoke, of Jesus hanging on the cross, when he said,” My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”
David said, ”He trusted in the Lord that he would deliver him; let him deliver him seeing he delighted in him.”Somehow King David saw the suffering of the Lamb Christ Jesus. About a thousand year later, David words were confirmed when Jesus was hanging on the cross Matthew bears this witness. My God, My God why have you forsaken me.
Matt 27:43 Matthew writes what men said, “He trusted in God; let him deliver him now if he will have him, for he said, I am the Son of God.” You can put your trust in The God that knows the end from the beginning, and holds your life, your very breath in His hands.
About 550 years before Jesus was born the prophet Isaiah said,
Isaiah 9:6 “ For unto us a child is born. Unto us, a Son is given. And the government shall be upon His shoulder. His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
The Child born is the perfect Lamb whose blood would wash our sins away and whose body would carry our sins to the grave to be buried in the grave of forgetfulness forever.
The Son given is the Lord from heaven. The Word said the Holy Ghost came upon Mary, and she brought forth the man Child Jesus. The Spirit of The Mighty God, the Everlasting Father the Wonderful Counselor, the Prince of Peace dwelling in the man, Christ Jesus.
Isaiah53:10-12( Isaiah had prophesied these words many years before Jesus was born.) “Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief.
“When You make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days, And the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand.”
11 “He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied. By His knowledge, My righteous Servant shall justify many, For He shall bear their iniquities.”
12 ”Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great, And He shall divide the spoil with the strong, Because He poured out His soul unto death, And He was numbered with the transgressors, And He bore the sin of many”.
Many- Only those who will believe. That would be you and me.
What a story! Father God satisfied the wages of sin with the life of his own Son for you and me.
Luke 18:32 “For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles, and shall be mocked, and spitefully entreated and spat upon.”
33 “And they shall scourge him, and put him to death and the third day he shall rise again.”
Have you noticed everything written about Jesus in the Word comes to pass? Every warning about your sins will come to pass, and a payday will surely come. Make sure your life is cleaned up. Stay out of sin.
Psalms 12:6 “The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.” To me, they say repent, and that you are loved. You are loved. You are loved.
Jeremiah 22:29 “O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the Lord”. His words are so pure and just and right. They say you are safe, and that you have a sure place and a sure foundation in Him. He is your Heavenly Father.
If you think Jesus died so that you would not have to go to hell, well maybe, but look again. Jesus said in John 17:2-3, that He died that we might know the only true God and Me, His Son. Father God wants you to know Him. You are God’s son or His daughter, and He is your Heavenly Father. He is your Maker, your Creator. You were always on His mind from the very beginning. Father God wants you with Him someday, but in his kingdom now, today.
Jesus bleed, and suffered and paid the price for men’s souls. He alone has all power to save the man. Truly God’s love is all about you.
John 14:6 Jesus said, ”No man can come to the Father except by me.” Our Lord Jesus hung on that bloody tree, to suffer and bleed to cleanse all mankind from sin. Jesus showed us how much Father God loved us.
John3:16-18 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
17 “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved”.
18 ”He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” Are you secure in the Lord? Are you going to be ok with God? Are you sure you’re going to heaven when you die?
John 3:36 “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abides on him.” Are your loved ones safe?
John 3:3 “Jesus answered and said unto him, (Nicodemus)Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
Pray Jesus comes into my heart and washes my sins away.
