I saw how they derived “Jesus” from “YSHW” (Yeshua after adding vowels), by converting it from Arimaic to Roman, if I am remembering correctly. I grew us using “Jesus” as His name, so use that one most but both are actually correct and the same person. But regardless if you Cann our precious Savior Jesus, Yeshua, Jehovah, God the Son, Wonderful, Counsellor, Prince of Peace, Intercessor, Messiah, He knows who we mean and is all n of those things. Our Jesus Christ is the perfect One, the Savior of our sins, our sole means for salvation and I love Him more than my life because without Him there is no life or hope. Jesus came down as a baby of all things, as one of His creation, grew up like us, learned, grew, started radical love and forgiveness and repentance teachings in his ministry, was brutally killed on a cross by those greedy for power and wealth, but raised up from the dead on the third day, lived on earth another month teaching, and the returned to heaven to wait with grace for the right time to come back not as a sacrificial lamb but as a fierce lion to n judge and rule. He will take His church out of the world before the worst of the end out of mercy and love. And He is our Savior, Healer, Friend, Lord of all, Precious Redeemer! He love us!!! And He understands us because He was one of us. That just wows me. If you think about that much love and self-control and more love in one person, it cannot be. He is the only One. His name is powerful! Even His name! Imagine how greater the Son of Man Himself! Oh how I love Jesus!!
Before my Daddy went to Heaven, I had a lot of invaluable time with him. It wasn’t invaluable because we had deeply wise discussions because he had dementia and gradually lost his memories, recent first and then past. What made it so special was that I got to see who he really was inside and his spirit. He loved Jesus. I know this because even when all his memories were gone, he still talked about Jesus and going to heaven and expressed great morality in his limited speech. And I got to see the pure base of love that God creates in a heart that loves and serves Him long term. It was beautiful. And in being so close to Daddy as his physical body diminished, I saw a renewing and resetting of his spirit, almost like he could see Jesus sometimes and I believe he could. And in my arms, he transitioned over and it was the biggest blessing of my life. I want to keep other older people company who are suck in bed to comfort them and learn and love on them. Older people are such an extreme blessing and what they teach us is worth more than gold. ❤
We Christians have been silenced for so long and most are afraid, which is a pretty good guage of how strong your faith is at the moment definitely. What I mean is, we have been lazy, most of us. We need to speak out with the most radical tools we have, our voice and our love. We must forgive openly and readily. We must serve with live often and fluently. We must voice peace and joy and encouragement on every occasion. And we must do this no matter what. This is the radical example Jesus Christ modeled for us. Love everyone no matter what and so doing speak volumes of truth and power and change things. Love is power. Love is so much stronger than fear or hopelessness or discouragement or pain. Love is the light, the truth and hope for God is love.
So, our kids in public schools and colleges all over the amazing, freedom encouraging, Christian filled United States of America. I survived all the way to a doctorate because my upbringing was so morally Christian and strong and that was still with being bombarded with social drama, bullies, liberal philosophies, discouragement and ridicule at being a Christian, evolution religion posing as fact, and social garbage about how Islam is a “peaceful” religion (bahahaha). None of this is essential for learning what you need to work and be productive, helpful, patriotic adults. It is ridiculous! How are parents saying “Oh well” and sending them anyway to the wolves instead of doing something, speaking against this garbage. They are paying for their kids to be taught an extreme amount of absolute bunk. I am a parent and am outraged by it. So much so that I homeschool my kids. If I were not able to do that, I would demand to evaluate curriculum, evaluate punishments for bullying, require teachers not preach their biases, return the pledge of allegiance and beginning prayer and the 10 commandments. I would fight tooth and nail until our future/children don’t end up confused and misinformed and brainwashed. Consider what your silence is putting your children through. Step up and say something now. It has gone on long enough. We finally have a President who wants our freedom to be free and not indoctrinated and he will help. Let him know your concerns. Demand action from your state leaders. Demand it.
I thought this was extremely beautiful and true and hopeful and wanted to share it. God bless all who love Him and do what is right and stand with Israel! Pray for our President and all those rulers over us who follow God and pray harder that those who don’t will either change their hearts or be severely punished.
Evil is all over the place. From “peaceful” Muslims killing and torturing everyone that isn’t a “peaceful” Muslim, to lying and power hungry agendists speaking lies to divide us and promote everything that is not Christian, to killers and addictions on an all time high. What on earth can we do? What can the Christians do? Well here it is. Ready? Stay close to God. Pray all the time, read the Bible, get our focus right on God. In doing so, we are lights with brilliant pristine truth screaming out into the black and gray so brightly even we have to wear sun glasses. Why am I not afraid? I am God’s child and saved and so Heaven is my home, no matter what happens here. God is in control and will come back soon. Who should be afraid is those choosing evil. They should be terrified because forever in torment in hell awaits them. They can lie to themselves all they want but they will face God, whether they believe it or not. So important to know. We have peace and joy and love and truth because God is our Heavenly Father. We will be with Him forever!!! That is reason to celebrate in anticipation of the end n of all evil!! Stay diligent, stay faithful, draw close to God.
I say it all the time, the church says it. What does it mean? Does it mean He gives us whatever we ask for? Does it mean He blesses us? Does it mean He makes sure we are cared for? This is how many Christian songs are going. “God is good because of what He does for me” seems the theme. I am protesting. God is good because that is what He is. It has nothing to do with us, it is part of His perfect makeup. God is good with or without us and that is what we should focus our praise and worship on. He is good and loving and holy and just and wanting the best and full of hope and grace. God is so good. We are just little people, one of billions of His created children and each is special yes but we need to get out of the grip of the selfish pride of believing we are the most important person out there. That seems a prevailing notion. You see it everywhere. God is the thing. He is so good. We are not. We cannot be good at all apart from Him. What God wants from us is humble faith, conversation, relationship, worship. He is worthy of our full attention and worship and infinitely more. God is so good!
