What would it be like if you call in to pay a debt, and you hear your balance is zero? That would be nice indeed, wouldn’t it? Well, this is just how nice it is to hear that your debt in sins has been paid in full. Read on:

Paid in Full

One day Satan went to visit Jesus in the Garden of Eden. Satan and Jesus were having a conversation, and Satan was all happy and boasting. (Luke 4: 1-12; Job 1: 6-12)

“Yes, Lord, now I have everybody captive, (well nearly everybody down there). I set traps, I used the baits of temptation, and I know very well what each one of them can’t resist.  I nearly caught them all!” (I Pet 5: 8-9; Eph 6: 10-17)

“What are you going to do with them?” Jesus asked, as He was praying to God the Father.

Satan answered, “Oh, I am going to have some fun with them! I’ll make them divorce after they have been married so the foundation of humanity will never be able to be established ‘the family’.” (Mt 19: 4-6; Mal 2: 16)

“I will make them hate and abuse each other, and I will make them fall into alcohol and drugs addiction.” (Rom 13: 12-14)

“I will teach them to make weapons and bombs,
so that they will kill each other. I am really going to have fun!”

“And when you are tired of playing with them, what will you do?”
Jesus asked, as He continued praying.

“Oh, I will kill them all, and their souls will be mine forever. Lord by all respect, it’s their decision.” (I John 3: 8-10)

“How much do you want for all of them?” Jesus asked.

“Oh, you don’t want these people. They aren’t anything good.
Why do you want them if they neither follow you nor love you?
Many hate you! I have seen many of them cursing you, and even denying you. What’s more, they love me a lot.” (Mt 24: 10-13)

“You don’t want these people!!”

“How much?” Jesus asked again.

Satan looked at Him with a nasty face, and replied, “All your blood, sweat and tears.” (Is 53: 4-10; I Pet 2: 24)

Jesus said…”DONE!”

And He paid the price. (II Cor 5: 21)

How terrible it is that people don’t seek God, and then ask themselves why the world is going to Hell? How terrible it is that we seek the newspaper everyday to read tragedies and gossips, and we never seek to read the Bible?

How insensible it is that everybody wants to go to Heaven, thinking they can get there without having to believe, without loving God, above all things, doing what the Bible says…the Laws of God?

It is terrible how some people can say ‘I believe in God’ but still follow Satan. (Who as a matter of fact, does fear God) (II Tim 4: 3-4; II Jn 1: 7-11)
Don’t you think it is outrageous that the obscene, vulgar and crude message is allowed freely to pass through the internet, but when it’s a message about God, we think about it twice before we share it? It is forbidden to speak publicly about Jesus in the schools, places of work, self-helping groups, etc., even after knowing what He did for us. The Romans didn’t killed Him, our sins caused His death, that we may be forgiven, and know Him in His glory with the Father.

Happy Easter Everyone!

Just thought of sharing this story of a scenario with Satan and Jesus, and the price Jesus paid for our sins. Author is unknown, but I thought it very interesting. Hope you do too. Share your feedback.

Giving Up During Holy Week

Palm Sunday marks the beginning of the Holy Week, leading up to Easter. During this time, write down some things that you will totally abstain from during Holy Week:
This is a ritual whereby many people give up something for a period of time in anticipation of a celebration of new beginnings.
Here are some things you can choose from, that you might consider giving up:
Intangible:
Winning an argument
Talking negatively about others
Lamenting missed opportunities
Resentment toward someone
Anxiety about the future
Focusing on your perceived weaknesses
Repeating gossip
Anger and resentment
Un-forgiveness
Hatred
Jealousy
Grudge
Greed
Fear
Doubt
etc.
Tangible:
– Favorite foods
– Drinks
– Meat
– Poultry
– Fast Food
– Favorite TV Shows
– Facebook
– Twitter
– Instagram
– Video Games
– Over-excessive Use of Cell Phones
– etc.
Holy Week is not about giving up something that you enjoy in an effort to somehow please God. You’re to also give up something that’s holding you back. The benefit of such a practice is that you give yourself time to create new habits which will enhance your soul’s expression and bring about great blessings, peace and joy.
 Holy Week
 
Happy Holy Week!

 

Hosanna In The Highest!

“And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest. And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this? And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee (Matthew 21:9-11).”

Hosanna

The word, “Hosanna” is used to express adoration, praise, or joy. When Jesus made His triumphant entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, He was met with great adoration by the people who placed palm leaves in His pathway. This expression of adoration, praise and joy leading up to the crucifixion, symbolizes the victory that Jesus would gain on the cross. Palm Sunday is a time to celebrate Jesus’ journey to the cross, and the ultimate sacrifice that He made, that would be the greatest victory in Christianity. It is the beginning of the Holy Week leading up to Easter.

As we celebrate Palm Sunday, you need to understand your journey here on this earth. Remember the sacrifice that Jesus made for you, and that you have already overcome by His blood.

This Good Friday…

Good Friday is a day where Christians remember the suffering and death of Jesus Christ.

Good Friday1

Good Friday marks the end of the 40-day period of fasting and renunciation during Lent, which recalls the days Jesus spent in the desert.

Today, Christians around the world are celebrating Palm Sunday. This celebration marks the triumphal entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem, the week before his death and resurrection. Palm Sunday begins the Holy Week, which ends on Easter Sunday.

jesusEntering Jerusalem

Mark 11 denotes this message, “When they came to Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the Mount of Olives, He sent forth two of His disciples, and said unto them, go your way into the village over against you: and as soon as ye be entered into it, ye shall find a colt tied, whereon never man sat; loose him, and bring him. And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on him; and He sat upon him. And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches off the trees, and strawed them in the way. And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord: And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when he had looked round about upon all things, and now the eventide was come, he went out unto Bethany with the twelve.”

When you explore the message in Mark 11, you can see that Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem is something to be excited about. This is so, because, although His time was drawing nigh where He would be tortured and died on the Cross, the victory that would be gain, would be greater than the pain. Today, sinners can have a second chance because of this great victory. This reminds you that when you are going through your darkest moment, you should rejoice, because the victory you will gain, will ultimately be greater than your pain.

He’s not here, but is risen!

Jesus' Body

 

Today is dubbed the “Resurrection Day,” because in retrospect, today would be the third day since Christ was crucified and buried, but when the women entered into the Sepulcher to search for him, he was not there! So they were confused, but two angels appeared, and said, “Why seek the living among the dead? He’s not here, but is risen!” (St. Luke 24:1-6)

Because he lives, you can face tomorrow; because he lives, your sins are forgiven and your fears are gone. Your life is worth living, just because he lives. Happy Easter!

Preparation for Easter

People around the world will celebrate Jesus’ resurrection on Sunday, March 31. In the weeks leading up to Easter, many individuals put intentional practices in place to focus on the nature and meaning of Christ’s sacrifice. This year Lent begins today, Wednesday, February 13.

Forty (40) days of Lent takes you through all four Gospel accounts (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) of Jesus’ last week of earthly Ministry. Bring the Bible to life, as you study Jesus’ life and His sacrifice for you. It will help you to understand the context of His time on earth.
