A Visit from Jesus

Be of good cheer, it is I, be not afraid. Have you ever laughed with Jesus over something He said. Have you ever enjoyed the company of the King of Kings. He was really good to me on Sunday and dwelt with me, but not me but, who He is in me. He selfied me and who He is said to my cell: Not much but He just listened while I tried to be myself and it was very encouraging even though I shared some negative stuff for awhile. But the love we shared as we tarried there as the song goes ‘no other has ever known’. This might be a Bible verse but if it is another person has experienced this. Someone famous- a Bible character maybe David. But I looked it up and maybe it was just the authors words to the song. See I’m not the only one; maybe someone near has had a close encounter like this with the Savior. He is so personable and automatically close when you meet Him. It took alot of prayer and being Holy before He – then, He just started talking to me while praying, because it is said if you listen He will.
So I think the chosen , well I didn’t want to show weakness while the master was creating this as I broke down in my understanding of His ways while I waited for Him to continue. And then He left. But I had a promise that God will never leave us or forsake us. So I knew it was only temporary. But I had a very nice time and felt relieved of all my temporal trials for a while. It is in being with Jesus that our situation starts looking up. The stress leaves and we are strengthened and ready to go on on our own again.
Ah He is so good to be with and spend time with as we do and He wants us to be ourselves and get to know us. When He does get to know us He acts differently than at first. In my experience He does minister to the poor and needy. He fills us with His love and caring, is patient with our humanness and gives superabundantly with what we need. Kindness is His forte’ and love is what he shows making us strong as He is lowly of heart and boosts my confidence any way. He plays a little and almost laughs and understands. Is so gentle in getting me to go forward and not fear and to know He will do it to an extent. When I am filled to the brim with everything thing he is in His presence, He leads and guides and sets me off in a new direction and goes until I can manage.
I was praying how can I reach them I’m out of stuff and here it is some new life in Jesus and a whole congregation of new ideas. He shames me actually He is so giving and has to repeat the obvious to get me moving. I wish He would just take me out of this mess we call earth and let me start over again in a perfect world. He will one day. That world where the streets are gold but more importantly where there is no pain or suffering or hurt. You know perfect, where we can all be perfect and without bonds. A heaven where we have all knowledge at our fingertips and all light and love in and through us where everybody benefits.
Most of all where the Master is so beautiful and accessible and giving and free that we all benefit. We get a part of Him now and most later and the love just keeps happening. The Master is so great that the praise and adoration don’t stop and His being is never quenched and our longings for Him are never not satisfied yet just keep growing to ever new heights. His reign will never be contested because He is the perfect leader, the only one and has no enemies.
The mansions are no junk, better than Trumps Florida Estate. I hope there are planetary shooting ranges and Galactic travel arrangements, the best kitchens because Jesus ate after he rose and we are going to eat forever. Only the best from Jesus, who had such love for us to sacrifice His own Son, the Father did, and He will therefore freely give us all things. If we accept Him, love Him and obey Him. He is perfect we can trust Him. The Jesus we experience on earth is the same Jesus in heaven and He is worthy of our praises.

Lovingkindness

 

Psa 6:4  Return, O LORD, rescue my soul; Save me because of Your lovingkindness.

Return to me the psalmist is stating; rescue me from the world, the flesh, and the devil.  So often we need to be saved from ourselves while we are walking with Jesus.  Why does He save us?  Because of His lovingkindness He saves us.  This word is mentioned 23 times in the Bible all referring to God.  That is why He does it- because He is good; He loves us; He is kind.  Some have tested Him but He is self motivated and self existent.  He proves Himself by being Himself more than every other living being.  Proves He is God and is lovingkindness and there is no other.

Here is what a psalmist felt after being saved:   Psa 86:13  For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.

Gratitude.

Psa 25:7  Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness’ sake, O LORD.

 

He does not remember the sins of our youth which we committed and leave such a mark on us.  We should forget, but this is what finally grows us.  We can get down at our mistakes or never make them again.  They temper us as we head in a different direction.  To learn our lesson and take correction is invaluable.  ‘Blessed is the man who can take correction.’  But He lets changes happen for His goodness sake or we would have an element of hopelessness doing the same thing over again.  God is working.  Watch the people on Netflix who die and visit heaven or hell and have changed lives afterward- Christian or not.  They have joy, they have purpose, and hope.   Even if they are unsaved God blesses them.  It is lucky they even survive.

Again when we need to get saved God is there.     Psa 79:8  O remember not against us former iniquities: let thy tender mercies speedily prevent us: for we are brought very low.    Psa 79:9  Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of thy name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for thy name’s sake.

The generational sins of which we can be free, drinking, whorring, beating our wives.  The things almost handed down genetically that we learned young and could have been violently inbred into us.  Through God we can get past those sins that drag us to the bottom and are only partially our fault.  God won’t leave you doing evil and not wanting to.  God’s Spirit of Holiness didn’t let Jesus sin and He can keep you from it too.

Eph 2:7  That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

Eph 2:8  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

If you are wonting it, God will give you His very special gift.  Just for not wanting your sin and giving your life to Jesus, He will free you.  Are you kind?  He is more, with the power of God to keep you and teach you.  He uses our willingness to help us be enabled to live a good life.  Get with Jesus, He is able and through lovingkindness help will come.

One of the bad wraps God has is that people think He is mean and cruel because of the Israelites in the desert.  It is simply not true.  He loves His people then and now.  Through it all we learned who He is.  God is Good and loving and kind.  Don’t be His enemy.
