Spring Brings New Life............. Jesus is Spring.....

















Isa. 53:4

Surely He hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows; yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

Isa. 53:5

But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed.

Isa. 53:6


All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

Isa. 53:7


He was oppressed, and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth: He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so He openeth not His mouth.



..............I pray that He hath borne your grief and you will let Him carry your sorrow....... I pray that the sin that you carry you will place on the wounds that He suffered..... and if there is torment you will exchange them for the peace that He purchased.... and that you will see the stripes upon His back and believe that each one was so that you could be healed..........



.............I pray that you will speak and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to those around you and shout from the highest mountain of the goodness of God.......... because He remained silent and purchased your right to speak.............


It is finished what the prophets of old have penned............. and He Has Risen!!!!!!!!!

Be blessed this Easter each and one of you......my very special friends..........

That's A Fact !!!

2Cr 4:8 [We are] troubled on every side, yet not distressed; [we are] perplexed, but not in despair;

2Cr 4:9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;


Oh my..... that's a fact!.......


I was up very late last night... trouble with my legs so I sat here in my new comfy chair and surfed the blogs......... My heart laughed with many of them and then cried with many........ There is trouble on every hand in the lives of so many of God's people.... and that is a fact................


I was born again in the late 70's and it was not many years after that that the name it and claim it gospel was spreading through the church..... I was living in Tulsa Oklahoma and I can tell you that it was terrible....... If you needed something all you had to do was name it and claim it...... If you were sick you just needed ignore the facts and just claim that you were well... ....... If you were living from pay check to pay check then you faith was brought into judgment..Because all you had to do what find the scripture that talked about prosperity and claim it and all your money needs would be over..... Name it and claim it....All you had to do was confess the word, confess the word, repetition repetition .. I think the word of God calls it vain repetition .......deny the fact...... ignore what was before us....... put our head in the sand and quote over and over and over that it is not real........ Name it and claim it..........Mercy It was a terrible time in the body of Christ..

It brought about doubt and shame and insecurity in the child of God that could not seem to "get what they needed from the Lord". They were looked upon as weak in their faith........... How not like God............. show me one hero in the word of God that did not suffer in their lives.......... Not a one............. If there was trouble in your life then you were not believing God enough and you were weak in the faith..... Mercy........ I am glad that period in the body of Christ has passed away..............

I knew people personally that kept a little book of all the things that they were claiming in the name of Christ and they would put a check mark beside it when it came to pass....... I tell you this because it was a false doctrine and it hurt a lot of people...

..........There are facts of life that we cannot avoid no matter what we do....... Facts are facts and they are undisputed............ OR are they.........

2Cr 4:8 FACT [We are] troubled on every side, TRUTH yet not distressed; FACT [we are] perplexed, TRUTH but not in despair;

2Cr 4:9 FACT Persecuted, TRUTH but not forsaken; FACT cast down, TRUTH but not destroyed;....

We have to understand that after every fact in our life there is a TRUTH in the word of God .. There will always be a TRUTH in His word that we can lean on when the facts overwhelm us..... The facts are.................... but the TRUTH is greater................ The word tells us that there is trouble....that we will be perplexed ... we will be persecuted, we will be cast down....... those are facts........... but let us move our eyes from the facts that press in on us daily and keep our eyes focused on the truth of the word of God ...... His word is Truth and it is greater than the facts that we face ........... He is truth........... and His truth will set us free..............
