The hidden half of domestic violence
How to have eternal life
3 Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons.
4 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye?
5 They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.
6 As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.
7 Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.
8 Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way:
9 That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none.
It was very late at night or very early in the morning before first light. Touches were needed to show the way...the way to the garden where the Lord of Lords was finishing His great intercessory prayer Yes the one where He was praying for YOU and for ME! His closest friends were sleeping.
There by a small brook called Kidron. What a peaceful place it should have been. But this night, this fateful night, all history would be changed.
There! There off in the distance... a group of ahh what.. who are they? ROMAN soldiers? We can always tell them, even from a distance but they are with yes the priest and the temple guard and they look angry.
Judus is with them? Yes that is Judus and he just gave the Lord a KISS? Jesus then ask them "WHO SEEK YE?"
When they told Him they were looking for Jesus of Nazareth He told them I AM. Simple, to the point but look...LOOK at what happened next.... verse 6 something amazing. "As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground."
What ROMANS SOLDIERS fell to the ground? These were the elite...the toughest soldiers around. They conquered the know world and yet because ONE MAN told them I AM they fell to the ground? Why? Why would Roman soldiers fall to the ground when they went to arrest Jesus? Could it be...YES it HAD to be that they knew somehow that they were arresting GOD! Please note too that these men could NOT get up until Jesus TOLD them to get up and do what they had to do. He also told them to let the others with Him go their way.
The Jews did not kill Jesus nor did the Romans. HE GAVE His life for YOU for ME!
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life
IF you do not KNOW that You have eternal life PLEASE read the next post.. it is soooo important I am reposting it once again.
One thing we need to remember... even when Jesus was being arrested.. He was IN CONTROL.
JESUS WAS IN CONTROL THEN .... AND HE IS IN CONTROL NOW! Whatever is going on in YOUR live Jesus IS IN CONTROL...YIELD TO HIM! RUN TO HIM...CLING TO HIM! CALL OUT TO HIM
HE Loves YOU every soooo much.....
The Great I AM... He has provided a Lamb to take away the sin of the world...to take away MY sin .Your sin... this is How....
1: We need to realize we have sinned. Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God This means we have failed to met the goal of being perfect in order to enter heaven. Few of us would question this.
2: The penalty for the sin that we are guilty of is death. Romans 6:23 tells us The wages of sin is death. (Death is separation. When our body dies, our soul is separated from our body. Eternal death is when we die without doing what is being explained here and then our spirit is separated from God for eternity.
Since the only price we can pay for our own sin is to be separated from God forever, it stands to reason that there is no way we can pay for our sin ourselves. We thus come to the 2nd part of Romans 6:23: but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ the Lord.
3: 2nd Corinthians 5:21 informs us: For he hath made him, who knew no sin, to be sin for us, that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. Jesus Christ, God's only Son became sin for us so that we can be freed from the penalty of sin. What then do we need to do?
4: For GOD so loved the world that HE gave His only begotten Son that whosoever (read YOUR name here) believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. Please note the ONLY condition given is that we believe in Jesus Christ for full payment for our sin.
Now if we only learn these facts, even though we may understand that they are true and believe them. that is only knowing ABOUT GOD. How do we KNOW HIM then? It is APPLYING that payment to our account. This would be like having a check to pay a bill and putting the check on a desk. The bill does not get paid because the check was never APPLIED to your account. Once we know and believe the facts pointed out above, the next step is to TALK to God much as you and I would and admit that we have fallen short of what He wants. We recognize that we deserve to be separated from a Holy God. We then tell Him that we know that He has provided a payment for all our sin and this payment was Jesus Christ when He died on a cross. It is at this time we ask God to APPLY THIS PAYMENT TO OUR ACCOUNT. We ask God to credit as PAYMENT IN FULL for all our sin the price Jesus paid for us. It is this step that gives us eternal life. If we do all but this step, we know about God. When we do this step, we will KNOW God and we will have eternal life.
Once you do this step, which is the most important thing you will ever do in your life, then you will have the power to be able to have a right relationship with other people. We will assist you in anyway we can to do this. WE CARE ABOUT YOU!
