The Greatest Love; the most priceless gift
While contemplating the latest tribulations facing me, I realized that through faith and belief in Jesus, I am able to overcome any trials. Recent events have been very trying on me, but through my faith in God, slowly my grief is leaving and my mind is clearing. The wonderful times that I had with my loved ones are beginning to surface again. This is because the greatest love of God has overshadowed me.
Through Jesus, I have received a most priceless gift; free passage into the Holy Father God directly, without any further sacrifice. The greatest love of God manifests with forgiveness, comfort, protection, assistance, and supplies me with all of my needs. Luke 23:45 says when Jesus died, “… the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in two.” When Jesus died on the cross, the veil that separated God from me and you was torn in half from the top to the bottom. This was an impossibility for any man to do in the days of Jesus, just because of the material and actual height of the temple. The veil in the temple, threaded with fibers of gold, was indestructible from anything or anyone on earth at the time. God, destroyed it himself, ripping the 60 ft. curtain from top to bottom; opening the door to his Holy of Holiest, welcoming all to the greatest love.
Through revelations given to me by the Holy Spirit, it finally dawned on me, what was the actual price that Jesus paid and I wanted to share it with you. Not only did he take away my sin when I accepted him, but his blood covered me for the rest of my life as long as I hold him as my Lord and Savior, and never purposely renounce him. Nothing or no one can take me away from him; even my own sinful nature. God invited me into his arms, holding me in his love. Jesus paid no small price either, God as man died painfully; his death was the ultimate gift of God to me and you. To die for us, and suffer on the cross, who else would be willing to do that?
Sickness, death of those I love, debt, and other terrible things of this world comes against me; it is the way of life, Jesus said it would be so. Threatening to destroy, take away my sanity, comfort, and even my own life. In those times, when feeling of unworthiness attacks me (because of my own thoughts and words of others), trying to make me believe God is punishing me in some way, I deny them. Once I accepted it; it was just the plan for my life, I told myself. However now I know better, it is not true; it is a lie told to me by other religious people, my own self, and the god of this world, satan.
The Greatest Love; the most priceless gift was given to me and you. Believe and trust in God, and know he is there to help us through it all. No longer is any other sacrifice needed, no longer do I need to worry that I am not good enough, or strive to reach impossible goals. For those beating themselves up, realize no one is PERFECT, but God, and remember Jesus paid the final price us.
I talk to God as a friend now, he already knows what I am going through and the pain I feel. If I do something wrong, I ask him to forgive me, in the name of Jesus, and I have the comfort to know that he will, and I strive not do it again. I let my faith in him reign, it keeps me going; I can’t quit and neither can you. God understands and he loves us very much.
1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
3 Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you say, “The LORD is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”
