The Fire Of God

“In a short time God began to manifest His power and soon the building could not contain the people. Now the meetings continue all day and into the night and the fire is kindling all over the city and surrounding towns. Proud, well-dressed preachers come in to “investigate.” Soon their high looks are replaced with wonder, then conviction comes, and very often you will find them in a short time wallowing on the dirty floor, asking God to forgive them and make them as little children.”
– William J.Seymour

“On the day of Pentecost all the believers were meeting together in one place. Suddenly, there was a sound from heaven like the roaring of a mighty windstorm, and it filled the house where they were sitting. Then, what looked like flames or tongues of fire appeared and settled on each of them. And everyone present was filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in other languages, as the Holy Spirit gave them this ability.

– Acts 2:1-4

Freedom From Guilt And Shame

“Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death.“- 2 Corinthians 7:10 

Godly sorrow = conviction 

Worldly sorrow =guilt and shame

When you are in Christ, He leads you to repentance because His Holy Spirit brings conviction which leads to a changed life. 

When you are of the world there is nothing but guilt and shame which leads to death, for the wages of sin is death. When you are guilty, you have no hope, for you feel the weight of judgement. 

Guilt leads to shame, which leads to a lifestyle of wrong doing. 

When you feel trapped with no hope of escape, you stay where you are. You do not change because you are imprisoned in your situation.

A man walking to the gallows is on the path of death with no hope of life.

That is the situation without Christ. Hopelessness!

We are condemned! We are guilty with no hope of life.

Jesus has come to take away all guilt and shame, He offers freedom from the burdens of a guilt filled life.

For Death is final without Jesus. He came to beat death by dying on the cross, paying the price for all of our guilt and shame, taking our condemnation on Himself-proving this by resurrecting from the dead.

We then can live free from this life sentence of staying in our sins, from the prison of guilt and condemnation where there was once no escape.

We can have the Spirit of Christ live within us!

We then are transformed into the very image of Jesus. Perfected and transformed by God given conviction.

Guilt and shame was nailed to the cross. Condemnation was put to death.

We are guided by conviction!

We are resurrected into a new life where the Holy Spirit guides our lives to glory after glory. And new life after new life.

Love Letter

The reason for the cross is simple.

The reason for the cross is for you!
Even if you hate me.

The reason for my blood shed is to purify the hearts of man.

The reason for the cross and the blood poured out was to draw you close to me.

So you can know me!
Your Creator!

So you can know Me
and find your purpose.

So you can know Me
and become NEW,
whole!

So you can walk in freedom.
So you can walk freely.
So the chains that bind you can be broken!

So you can walk with me.
So you can abide in me and I in you.

So you can know true love.

Which is me!
I AM the purest form of Love,
by the Cross this proves true.

I call out to you through My cross,
even when you deny my name and laugh at the mention of Jesus.

Yes! You! I did this for you!
Even if you didn’t ask for it.
I know what is best for you.

I am God.
I created you from the bottom of your feet to the very last hair on your head.

My beloved!
I loved you and cared for you when you are at your worst!
When you don’t even love your self!

The cross is to draw you close to me.
The blood is to draw you close to me.

Until the very day you realize your need for me.
I wait!
My cross was for you!

I paid it all so we can walk as one together.

I am resurrected so you can rise to life with me!

For I Am the ONLY WAY!

I Am the Truth!

And now you can live in Me because of the finished work on the cross.

I am waiting my child.
I love you with my life.
I paid it all just for you my love.

Love Your Father
Your Creator
