Do not take for granted the Lord’s Grace by using forgiveness to do evil by this thought: “God will forgive me, so it’s okay,”
Or you will be like the wicked and lost as their futile minds are filled with darkness, too blind in God’s Truth to know the Way
Remember to strive for perfection, though we will fail at times, as the Spirit is willing but the flesh is weak to do God’s Will
This, we need to remember in meditation with delight in our hearts, God’s Word, seeking in Him in prayer, and quietly being still
When others harm us and cause us pain that is too much to bear while we cry endlessly in tears for the sins of others done
Truly, we need to also cry tears of pain that we cause to our Father when we grieve the Holy Spirit sent in the Name of God’s Son
The Lord does have pain in His heart from the wicked and evil things that we do as it says in Genesis 6:5-6 which speaks of God’s heart
Even though God had regret for creating mankind, He still loved us by keeping a precious promise to Noah and his family, a new start
The Lord is full of compassion, love, mercy, and grace; But remember to fear the Lord as He is Almighty and Powerful in all the earth
He sent His Son Jesus to be born of a virgin, teach, heal, forgive sins, give His life on the cross, rise again, revealing hearts to a new birth
When Jesus came here, He spoke the Truth of the heart, showing that what we think in our minds is equal to committing the sinful act
Words that are spoken out of the mouth reveals the heart, whether it is love or hate, WE DO MEAN IT; Repent to God by saying it’s a fact
Ask the Lord to rid you of your evil thoughts which come out of the mouth for all to hear, ignore the lie of Satan; he says it isn’t so
Satan’s lies continue to trick us and we listen as we say, “I was only angry and didn’t mean what I said.” Listen to God, acknowledge and know
The ugliness in our hearts we cannot hide, it is a big deal,the hate that is deep within ourselves, repenting is knowing Truth and hating all sin
by humbly confessing the Truth of every evil thought and deed to bring out what is dark to be seen in God’s light as He will forgive all things
Never take lightly the Lord’s Grace as all sin is deserving of death in the lake of fire; Let’s always be thankful in Grace for the reconciliation it brings
Genesis 6:5-8 The Lord saw how great man’s wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time. The Lord was grieved that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was filled with pain. So the Lord said, “I will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth–men and animals, and creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the air–for I am grieved that I have made them.” But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord. Genesis 9:11-15″ I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be cut off by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth.” And God said, ” This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: I have set my rainbow in the clouds over the earth. Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life.
Jeremiah 31:31-32 “The time is coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah. It will not be like the covenant I made with their forefathers when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they broke my covenant, though I was a husband to them, ” declares the Lord. Joel 2:28-29 “And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days. Romans 9:1-8 I speak the truth in Christ–I am not lying, my conscience confirms it in the Holy Spirit–I have great anguish in my heart. For I could wish that I myself were cursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my brothers, those of my own race, the people of Israel. Theirs is the adoption as sons; theirs the divine glory, the covenants, the receiving of the law, the temple worship and the promises. Theirs are the patriarchs, and from them is traced the human ancestry of Christ, who is God over all, forever praised! Amen. It is not as though God’s word failed.
For not all who are descended from Israel are Israel. Nor because they are his descendants are they all Abraham’s children. On the contrary, “It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned.” In other words, it is not the natural children who are God’s children, but it is the children of the promise who are regarded as Abraham’s offspring. Romans 9:24-29 even us, whom he also called, not only from the Jews but also from the Gentiles? As he says in Hosea: “I will call them ‘my people’ who are not my people; and I will call her ‘my loved one’ who is not my loved one,” and “It will happen that in the very place where it was said to them, ‘You are not my people,’ they will be called sons of the living God.’ “
Isaiah cries out concerning Israel: “Though the number of Israelites be like the sand by the sea, only the remnant will be saved. For the Lord will carry out his sentence on earth with speed and finality.” It is just as Isaiah said previously: “Unless the Lord Almighty had left us descendants, we would have become like Sodom, we would have become like Gomorrah.”
Julia,This is a beautiful description of God’s amazing grace. God forbid that we would ever take it for granted. I have to stop and ask, when someone complains, why would God allow suffering. Why not, are we better than his son, that we should be spared. Jesus promised we would suffer has he did. Thank you for sharing this witness of the sufficient grace of God.
