John 1 (New King James Version)
The Eternal Word
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
John’s Witness: The True Light
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
The Word Becomes Flesh
14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
15 John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.’”
16 And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. 17 For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.
JESUS IS THE WAY TO FORGIVENESS OF SINS
Jesus, The Way To Forgiveness of our Sins
Many people think that sin is nothing more than a violation of human relationships. They consider an action sinful only if it is frowned upon by society, if it violates their own conscience, or if it is harmful to someone. To such people, correcting sin is nothing more than making things right with other people. When this is done they feel a peaceful release.
But sin is more than this. Sin is any deviation from God’s will.
1 JOHN 5:17 All unrighteousness is sin, and there is a sin not leading to death.
It may be doing what God disapproves.
1 JOHN 3:4 Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness.
Or, it may be failing to do right.
JAMES 4:17 Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do, and does not do it, to him it is sin.
The grossest behavior toward another human being is sin only because it violates God’s law. After committing adultery and murder, David wrote in a Psalm to God:
PSALM 51:4 Against Thee, Thee only, I have sinned, And done what is evil in Thy sight, So that Thou art justified when Thou dost speak, And blameless when Thou dost judge.
This means that sin is more serious than most people realize and it explains the penalty attached to it:
ROMANS 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
It means, also, that no man is forgiven until all is right with God.
The Problem of Sin
Making a sinner right with God is not easy — even for God. God is perfectly HOLY, and holiness makes any truce with sin impossible.
PSALM 45:7 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated wickedness; Therefore God, Thy God, has anointed Thee With the oil of joy above Thy fellows.
God is infinitely JUST, and justice demands that He punish sin with that penalty which His justice prescribes for the guilty — death.
EPHESIANS 5:6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
These facts involve man in a terrible predicament. He is a sinner. The very nature of God demands separation from man and man’s punishment by death.
Man is helpless to solve the problem. He cannot deny the fact the he is a sinner, and no good works he may do can make him innocent. A man who has committed an undetected murder is not made innocent by living the rest of his life by the law.
Doing other things God has required does not give us credit to apply against our sins. Once we are sinners, we are as dead men.
LUKE 17:10 “So you too, when you do all the things which are commanded you, say, ‘We are unworthy slaves; we have done only that which we ought to have done.'”
Solution To The Problem
EPHESIANS 2:4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,
2:5 even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),
God’s love and grace do not compromise His holiness or justice. He struck the blow which Justice required. But His love provided His own Son –Jesus Christ- as a shield to receive the blow in place of sinful man.
God Jesus accepted ALL our sins to His holy body on the cross…it was even predicted by prophet many years before his birth:
ISAIAH 53:8 8 He was taken from prison and from judgment,
And who will declare His generation?
For He was cut off from the land of the living;
For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.
1 He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied.
By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many,
For He shall bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great,
And He shall divide the spoil with the strong,
Because He poured out His soul unto death,
And He was numbered with the transgressors,
And He bore the sin of many,
And made intercession for the transgressors.
These words written hundreds of years before Christ, were fulfilled in His death on the cross. A shield or protection from punishment is called a propitiation.
1 JOHN 2:2 and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world.
Truly, JESUS IS THE WAY TO FORGIVENESS OF SINS!
EPHESIANS 1:7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace,
Though Christ is the propitiation for “the sins of the whole world“, not all will be saved by Him.
HEBREWS 5:9 And having been made perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation,
Obeying Christ requires BELIEVING, having Faith in Him. If He is THE WAY, we must put our trust in Him.
ACTS 16:31 And they said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you shall be saved, you and your household.”
This faith, of course, must be strong enough to create in us a resolve to turn from sin. This is REPENTANCE.
ACTS 17:30 “Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men that all everywhere should repent,
Our faith must be strong enough to prompt public confession.
ROMANS 10:10 for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.
And we must believe sufficiently to be BAPTIZED.
MARK 16:16 “He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.
This baptism puts us into Christ where we are children of God by faith.
GALATIANS 3:26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
3:27 For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.
It is when we are buried with Christ in baptism that God makes us alive.
ROMANS 6:4 Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, in order that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.
Once we are in Christ and have this new life, we are continually forgiven as we “walk in the light” of truth and righteousness.
1 JOHN 1:7 but if we walk in the light as He Himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.
Jesus In The Old Testament
The Bible is divided into two major divisions: the Old Testament and the New Testament. The writing of the Old Testament was completed 400 years before Jesus was born, yet it contains many things about Him.
The Old Testament provides glimpses of Jesus in a pre-fleshly state. When God was about to make man, He said to another divine being:
GENESIS 1:26 … “Let Us make man in Our image, …”
The New Testament identifies this divine being as “the Word”.
JOHN 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
1:2 He was in the beginning with God.
1:3 All things came into being by Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.
The Old Testament predicted His birth of a virgin.
ISAIAH 7:14 “Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel.
The name Imannuel means “God with us” (Matthew 1:23). The Old Testament even predicts the place of His birth in Micah 5:2.
Old Or New Testament?
Though many things about Jesus are foretold and foreshadowed in the Old Testament, it is in the New that God speaks to us through Him.
HEBREWS 1:1 God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways,
1:2 in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world.
This means that we must not go back to the Old Testament to learn how to follow Jesus, the Way. The law was intended simply to bring men to Jesus.
GALATIANS 3:24 Therefore the Law has become our tutor to lead us to Christ, that we may be justified by faith.
3:25 But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor.
No Other Revelations
The revelation of Jesus and His teaching in the New Testament is complete. The writers warn:
GALATIANS 1:8 But even though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to that which we have preached to you, let him be accursed.
The writer of the last book of the New Testament gives warning that NO ONE should change any word of His holy Scriptures:
REVELATION 22:18 God said: I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God shall add to him the plagues which are written in this book…
The impossibility of the revelation of the Qur’an
The Qur’an presents the concept of Allah in a way which makes the Qur’an’s revelation itself impossible. To understand this, let us have a closer look at one Qur’anic verse:
“… nothing is like him, he is the All-hearing, the All-seeing” (Q. 42:11).
To begin with, if we consider the characteristics of Allah that the Qur’an displays and the way Muslims have dealt with them, we find that they are meaningless words. The author of Nahj Al-Balagha, defining Allah’s characteristics, says:
The foremost in religion is the acknowledgement of Him, the perfection of acknowledging Him is to testify Him, the perfection of testifying Him is to believe in His Oneness, the perfection of believing in His Oneness is to regard Him Pure, and the perfection of His purity is to deny Him attributes, because every attribute is a proof that it is different from that to which it is attributed and everything to which something is attributed is different from the attribute. Thus whoever attaches attributes to Allah recognises His like, and who recognises His like regards Him two; and who regards Him two recognises parts for Him; and who recognises parts for Him mistook Him; and who mistook Him pointed at Him; and who pointed at Him admitted limitations for Him; and who admitted limitations for Him numbered Him. Whoever said in what is He, held that He is contained; and whoever said on what is He held He is not on something else. He is a Being but not through phenomenon of coming into being. He exists but not from non-existence. He is with everything but not in physical nearness. He is different from everything but not in physical separation. He acts but without connotation of movements and instruments. He sees even when there is none to be looked at from among His creation. He is only One, such that there is none with whom He may keep company or whom He may miss in his absence. (Source)
Ibn Ishaq Al Kindy1 says: “Allah, may he be blessed and exalted, is absolutely one, and does not allow any multiplicity or composition. He is beyond description, and can not be described by any category. (The magazine of the University of Umm-Al-Qura, Vol. 6, p. 123)
This makes all talk of Allah meaningless, not to mention that it gives rise to self-reference paradoxes like: Allah, who cannot be described by any category, is in the category of that which is not composite. Or, Allah is in a category all his own, namely, the category of that which cannot be categorized. Or, Allah may be described as that being which cannot be described.
Muslims may say that those who have such views are not the people of the Sunnah. But the views of Sunni Muslims hardly represent an improvement upon the views just mentioned. The doctrine of Sunni Islam relating to the names and characteristics of Allah states: “The names of Allah –may he be exalted– depend on the Qur’an and Sunnah, without addition or subtraction; and because reason cannot comprehend the names which Allah is worthy of, it is unavoidable to solely depend on the text. (Al-Majla Sharh Al-Akeeda Al-Muthla – Ibn Otheimeen 1:8)
At this point the Sunni Muslims would tell us that they are confirming what pertains to Allah according to the Book and the Sunnah. But this does not explain anything; we had already admitted that those characteristics are there. The problem is that by viewing them in the light of the Muslims’ doctrines they are mere empty words. The text of Sura 42:11 tells us that, “He is the All-seeing, the All-hearing.” But what do those words mean according to the belief of Sunni Muslims? The reason for considering only the Sunni belief is the fact that others2 have exempted us from this discussion by their own admission, as the Shia, for example, put it: “the perfection of His purity is to deny Him attributes,” and in fact, “He cannot be described by any category.”
As for the Sunnis, they confirm the characteristics, but they say the fundamental belief of the Sunnis is that Allah is to be described by what he described himself or by what the Messenger of Allah (SAWS) described him without any comparison or likening, or interpretation and nullification.
The confirmation of this characteristic of Allah and other characteristics does not necessitate any attempt to liken them to the characteristics of humans. In fact they are not similar to the characteristics of human beings but rather characteristics that befit his majesty and glory: “nothing is like him, he is the All-hearing, the All-seeing” (42:11).
In order to understand a certain thing we need to know what is the meaning of the terms used.
Likening: to believe that any of Allah’s characteristics is like the characteristics of human beings.
Analogy: to believe that Allah’s characteristics are analogous to human characteristics.
Nullification: to deny Allah’s characteristics or attribute completely.
Interpretation: it means to try to understand the words in another way than the obvious meaning, like to say “hand” means power or “eye” means care or any thing of that sort.
Under these definitions it is impossible to understand any word whatsoever. Suppose we ask about the meaning of “the All-hearing, the All-seeing”. The answer should be, ‘they mean “the All-hearing , the All-seeing”’. However this meaning – according to Muslims – should not be associated with any picture perceived by human reason. Their scholars stressed this to the extent to say: “it is impossible that Allah -glory and power to him- would have in himself and his characteristics anything imagined or perceived by humans, because Allah is different from anything you could think of.” (The Explanation of the Tahawi’s belief – Saleh Al Al-Sheikh – a lecture on Saturday 13 Thee Al Kaadeh, 1417 H – quoted from the Comprehensive Encyclopaedia; source, page (1/168))
But if such words cannot be defined, then what is the difference between saying that Allah is “the all-hearing” and Allah is “the all-seeing”? On such an approach, all such “characteristics” of Allah collapse into one meaningless “characteristic”.
Even when the characteristics of Allah agree in wording with the characteristics of creatures, they do not mean the same thing according to Muslims. Thus they say: “it is not permissible for a man to say: Allah is knowing and I am knowing, Allah is existing and I am existing, Allah is living and I am living, Allah is capable and I am capable. I should not say this in a free manner but rather specifying that Allah’s knowledge, capacity, existence and life are different from our knowledge, capacity, existence and life.” (The Essence of Explaining the Islamic belief – the subject of Allah’s characteristics; source, 3rd point: The un-likeness to creation)
If we consider the above discussion logically we would find out that the Islamic doctrine makes the revelation of the Qur’an impossible.
- The Qur’an says about Allah “nothing is like him”.
- This means that Allah is other than anything that comes to your mind about him.
- Muslims believe in the doctrine of “Mukhalaft مخالفة” ‘unlikeness’, which means there is no likeness whatsoever between Allah, and his characteristics, on one hand and all that pertains to creatures on the other.
- The Qur’an is Allah’s word which is not like human words. (Arabic source for the fourth point: http://www.dorar.net/book_end/11018)
The above demonstrates that it is impossible to use human language to talk about Allah. That means if the Qur’an is credible in what it tells about Allah’s nature and characteristics, then it cannot be a revelation from that Allah. In other words, if it is false, it is false; if it is true, it is also false; therefore, it is false.
This teaching of the Qur’an leads to the impossibility of using human language to define Allah.
Therefore, since the Qur’an is written with human language, it can not be an expression of Allah, it cannot be a revelation from him, nor can it be his word.
That is to say if the Qur’an is true about who Allah is, it cannot be true about what the Qur’an is, and vice versa.
The only way, for Muslims to solve this dilemma is by considering that all words of the Qur’an are other than facts and that they are not equivalent to any human concept even if the wordings of both agree. Expressed differently, those words actually mean nothing, they are in fact only empty words.
Thus, the Muslims’ teaching that Allah is other than what comes to our minds logically means that if we have understood what the Qur’an said about Allah, He is other than what the Qur’an has said about him.
1 Ibn Ishaq Al Kindy was not a Shiite. He was a Muslim philosopher influenced by Mutazilite theology. For more information, see the Wikipedia entry on Al-Kindi.
2 I.e. various other sects of Islam, the Mutazilites being the most prominent group besides the Shia.
Jesus could protect Himself to be alive and not killed on the cross. But He decided for Arabs and us to accept ALL our sins to His body. He did NOT ONLY die on the cross, but accepted all our sins and iniquities to His body like millions rams killed during the Hajj to commemorate that son of Ibrahim was not killed by God but kept alive! It is symbol and SIGN in Islam that Jesus was sacrificed instead of us that we would BE ALIVE! He –Jesus Christ- died to forgive all your sins through our FAITH in Him. God resurrected Jesus! Jesus is ALIVE and He is COMING back to judge us! We will be alive with Him if we will follow Him and believe in Him! To live with God you should have fellowship with Him.
Fellowship with Him means YOU Arabs and Muslims can be called sons of God. You can be forgiven of ALL your sins! You can be adopted by God THROUGH your Faith in His Son Jesus.
Can you call Jesus the Son of God? Is He God in your life? Have you given Him absolute control of your life and future?
If not, do is right NOW!
Arabs, Be saved RIGHT now!
Pray now to the LORD and accept His forgiveness of all your sins through FAITH in His Son – God Jesus Christ!
Pray God right now And be saved!
God is bringing Judgement. Return of the Lord Jesus and His Judgement day should make difference in our behavior. Live your best in purity. Be excited about meeting with the Lord. You should anxiously await with joiful anticipation of the Lord’s return. If your hearts is filled with anticipation, excitement and joy, it indicates that you are walking with the Lord. If you are NOT sure and confident that if you would die today you would go to Heaven, it means you need to get right with God. If you never said- YES- to Jesus, do it today! If you have fallen away from the Lord, come back to Him today.
We will close with prayers:
Father, we believe that Jesus is coming again. We believe we need to be ready. And Lord I am praying about any person who is reading my message and if they dont have confidence that they are ready for Your return, help them to come to You today and get right with You now. Amen.
First, recognise brother, that you are sinner. Be sorry for your sin. And ask God to forgive you right now. The way as we do that TROUGH PRAYER. That’s how we communicate with God.
I’d like to lead you in prayer. If you want Christ to forgive your sins. If you want to know that when you will die you will go to Heaven then pray this prayer with me right now:
God, I know I am a sinner. And I am sorry for what I have done. And I turn from my sin now and ask You to forgive me. Thank You that Your Son Jesus Christ died on the cross and shed His blood for me. Be my Savior and my Lord. And be my friend. I want to follow You from this day forward. Fill me with Your Spirit. And help me to be Your disciple. Thank You for accepting me. Thank You for forgiving me. Thank You that I am now YOURS. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
If you sincerely asked God to forgive you then WELCOME to the family of God. Now you are adopted by God. Now you bacame His son and His inheritance. His angels have written your name in the Book of Life. And you have the BRIGHT FUTURE.
Walk with God and live eternally Arab nation! Amen.

Peace. If Jesus would kill His enemies then He would be God of war. But He just could not disown Himself. So, He was TRUE and REAL peace. That’s why when people insulted Him, beat Him and spat to His face He didn’t do the same. He was from other world. Like alien. He was from world of Justice and LOVE. Because His nature and essence is LOVE. Before people killed Him he prayed His God Father NOT to punish them for their sins and forgive them.
3. Was the god weak and could not protect Himself from Jewish whom killed Him?– His power was in His LOVE.
FABRICATION OF WORDS WHERE IS THAT IN ANY ANY BIBLE !! THESE ALL ARE MAN-MADE RELIGIONS LIKE BUDDHISM AND CONFECIOUS.– He decided that better to be weak and not revenge then revenge and BE God of war and hatred. He decided that He will be such as He is and moreover He willingly accepted His death. Jesus could protect Himself. But He decided to protect us and Arabs by accepting ALL our sins to His body. He NOT only died on the cross, but He accepted all our sins and iniquities to His body like rams during hajj are killed to commemorate that son of Ibrahim was not killed by God but kept alive! The same way like this symbol of Jesus and His sacrifice in Islam, He –Jesus Christ- died to forgive all your sins through our FAITH in Him. God resurrected Jesus! He is ALIVE! And we will be alive with Him if we will follow Him and believe in Him!
4. How come God feel hungry? Thirsty? Is the God eat and drink? Is the God die? – God Jesus was in human body like water was poured into vessel. Body is created by God and water and food essentials for our living process.-FUNNY EXPLANATION. THIS APPLIES TO THE SPIRIT IN THE BODY NOT THE GOD IN A BODY. ARE THESE ALL MYTHS EXIST IN ANY BIBLE? I CHALLENGE U USING YOUR(MAN-WRITTEN) BIBLE !! -Correct. God is Spirit and Jesus is Spirit. Even Quran states that Jesus was Ruh minhu Allah!
May God bless you and save you all!
Brothers salam, Hussein salam!
i liked yur message.
But lets read authorised translation of the holy Qur’an made by Yusuf Ali:
4:157. That they said (in boast), “We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah.;- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not:-
158. Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise;-
159. And there is none of the People of the Book but must believe in him before his death; and on the Day of Judgment he will be a witness against them;-
It was made to appear to them. What made it to appear? Because Allah admits that he made it appear so!
So we see that Allah admits to making it appear (to the people) that Jesus was crucified on the cross (and died), and that Allah then raised Jesus to himself (ascended him to heaven). Therefore Allah admits to deceiving the people. For the next 600 years, Allah sat back and watched all these people converting to, and following Christianity; a religion that was started by his deception, but he did not bother to lift a finger to correct anything until 600 years later, when he sent Muhammad with the Quran – to sort out the mess that he himself (Allah) had created!
Let’s look at it from another point of view; Allah sent Jesus to ‘fix’ the errors that had crept into Judaism, but then undoes any corrections that were made from the intervention (and Jesus’ message) by making it appear (in the end) that Jesus was crucified and then raised from the dead. This negates the entire purpose of sending Jesus. This leaves the people with not only one alternative to Allah’s ‘true’ religion, but two; Judaism or Christianity which entails (among other things) following the message of Jesus, which Allah himself had corrupted by making it appear that he had risen from the dead. So for 600 years, Allah’s pure religion was not to be found on this Earth and now (thanks to Allah’s deception) had two competing faiths to deceive the people and tempt them away from the ‘straight path’. This makes no sense.
Look what Jesus said in Qur’an below. He siad that He should die and be resurected! You, Muslims, claim that Qur’an is holy and there is NO mistake in it! It means that Jesus REALLY died!
19:30. He said: “I am indeed a servant of Allah. He hath given me revelation and made me a prophet;
31. “And He hath made me blessed wheresoever I be, and hath enjoined on me Prayer and Charity as long as I live;
32. “(He) hath made me kind to my mother, and not overbearing or miserable;
33. “So peace is on me the day I was born, the day that I die, and the day that I shall be raised up to life (again)“!
34. Such (was) Jesus the son of Mary: (it is) a statement of truth, about which they (vainly) dispute.
35. It is not befitting to (the majesty of) Allah that He should beget a son. Glory be to Him! when He determines a matter, He only says to it, “Be”, and it is.
Does Jesus in Qur’an lie if He said that He will be killed and resurected? Or does Qur’an lie to us?
Do we need such Allah who according to Qur’an desired to lead people astray and he doesnt help those who are astray and he desired hem to pupulate hell? No, we need God Jesus to believe in Him because when He died according to Bible, He descended to hell to save people from there what proved that He is TRUE God of LOVE! God with LOVE and Mercy in His heart!
6:39. Those who reject our sings are deaf and dumb,- in the midst of darkness profound: whom Allah willeth, He leaveth to wander: whom He willeth, He placeth on the way that is straight.
6:126. This is the way of thy Lord, leading straight: We have detailed the signs for those who receive admonition.
32:13. If We had so willed, We could certainly have brought every soul its true guidance: but the Word from Me will come true, “I will fill Hell with Jinns and men all together.
In sanctification of the Spirit and for obedience and sprinkling of the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ:
As I enter into the Holy of Holies I am thanking you Lord for your goodness, mercy and loving judgement in my life and the lives of others. You have implanted in my heart such a strength for a person that has so many medical concerns.
These concerns can be from their life before coming becomming a Christian. Also there are spirits that are involved and they are definately ungodly!! But that will not be a concern for you Jesus. For the prayer of faith will save the sick and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has comitted sins he will be forgiven. You came to heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, give sight to the blind, raise the dead and cast of demons!
The effective, ferverent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Prayer is powerful and I am learning this in this situation with this person more and more daily. Never have I been so certain of this healing and I know that this is because of prayer and you have drawn nigh to me for finally I have drawn night to You!
I have never felt like this before–so certain about this situation and the healing thereof. It is an overwhelmingly wonderful feeling. Usually I am concerned ahout myself–and I think, “What if I believe this or that concern and speak it forth and it does not work out. How will I look?”
That is terrible and untrusting in you Jesus and I am sorry so very sorry. Now I have strength and perseverence in this and you are putting it all together fot his person is a Christian and the more we speak and learn from your word together the better your plan evolves.
Have thine own way Lord
Have thine own way
You are the Potter
We are the clay
Mold me and shape me
Have thine own will
Will I am waiting yeilding and still.
Abundant mercy is Jesus Christ for you are our living hope–our Lord and our Salvation!!
