PICTURE SAYS 1000 WORDS

Image

Those days that you feel let down, disappointed, alone, worn out, under attack, everything possible goes wrong, at the end of your tether, stressed, depressed, not knowing where to turn. You get down on your knees and the words are stuck in your throat. You question God and ask Why me? Then cry until there are no more tears left so become numb with worry, sorrow and grief. You call on God for protection yet feel in limbo, neither here nor there, with the world and time passing you by. Instead of receiving love, mercy, forgiveness, compassion, support, help, sympathy you feel unappreciated, taken for granted. Worst of all the ones you love most and help hurdle and throw stones at you. For your love they show hatred but you give yourself to prayer. Suddenly, in the lowest moments when all hope seems lost, Christ the Saviour shows up at the exact right time to your shock and disbelief. Christ opens and stretches His loving Arms Widely, Protects and Shields you from the attacks. Your attackers are confused because you seem the least and foolish one chosen by God to confound the wise. You are surprised and amazed by the grace of God on your behalf God would save such a wreck like you. Thank you God for saving me in Christ Jesus and Holy Spirit.

1.Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.

  • 2.’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
    And grace my fears relieved;
    How precious did that grace appear
    The hour I first believed.
  • 3.Through many dangers, toils and snares,
    I have already come;
    ’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
    And grace will lead me home.
  • 4.The Lord has promised good to me,
    His Word my hope secures;
    He will my Shield and Portion be,
    As long as life endures.
  • 5.Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
    And mortal life shall cease,
    I shall possess, within the veil,
    A life of joy and peace.
  • 6.The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
    The sun forbear to shine;
    But God, who called me here below,
    Will be forever mine.
  • 7.When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
    Bright shining as the sun,
    We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
    Than when we’d first begun.

GOD’S CHILD STARS

ImageJesus the star child is in the news as we hear about other little children who do great and impossible things according to their age. They do feats considered beyond level of maturity, knowledge understanding as 2 year old saved mother’s life. By navigating his way through mother’s sophisticated phone, pressed emergency button to alert father when mother collapsed on floor. Such miracle is expected through adult appropriate technology yet child star take centre stage of life to deliver great line messages forever remembered. In John 7:14-31, during feast celebration, Jesus impressed learned scribes and rabbi’s with his excellent knowledge of the word of God in the synagogue. ImageThe message delivered by Christ 3 days engrossed people so much he continued teaching until his parents had to go looking for him. They realised Jesus did not follow them behind in the crowd while returning from Jerusalem but found Jesus busy teaching in temple. When asked why Jesus said He had to do His Father’s business. God uses child stars because the talent and abilities in them is created by God. So God uses a child star to bless like young girl maid servant child star whose advise led Naaman to Israel prophet to be healed. When Aramaen mercenaries captured this Israeli girl in 2 Kings 5 and sold her into slavery, her new master was that powerful army captain. She was not bitter for her lot in life but showed kindness to master and did good and what is right. Similarly the Sound of music tells the story of child stars who confronted danger from the Nazis. ImageThis true life story in cinemas and theaters, tells their victory in popular film called Sound of music lovely child star’s in living history. Endearing to audience this little children overcome adversity by bravely performing music in the face of Nazi threats to entertain people. They were healing and thriving from loss of their mother so triumphed over Nazis who took over their home and wealth. Such is the impact of small children on people as they become center of focus, attention and hope to many children facing danger and adversity.Image They can also be used by God to deliver important messages to the nations. The information can be good like Christ sent to save all who accept Him. In Matthew 14:13-21 another little child star also willingly to let go of his packed lunch to share his food with others so was kind to others hungry. In John 6, a boy shared his lunch with the Saviour Who is able to feed a multitude. Several versions of this child star’s generosity is told in the Bible again and again. Account is slightly varied because no mechanized data registered precise numbers like calculators so different eye witness accounts is expected in such situations. images (28)Christ blessed and multiplied it to feed more than 5000 multitude counting women and children who followed Jesus to listen to messages shared. In any case Jesus feeds the multitudes using a child star’s packed lunch as an example to do miracles beyond expectation with extra surplus taken home by all.  They collected 12 baskets extra surplus food more abundantly multiplied so took the rest home. In Jeremiah 1:6 God called a young man to serve as a prophet and he told God he was ‘a child,’ so felt too young to do God’s work. God touched his lips so strengthened him to do God’s work. One is never too young to serve as God called Samuel a little boy to deliver message to the nation in 1 Samuel 2 : 12 -17. God spoke directly to him while asleep so God woke him up 3 times to talk to him.copley-john-singleton-samuel-reading-to-eli-the-judgments-of-god-upon-elis-house The little boy thought it was the prophet who called him so the prophet Eli taught him to answer ‘Yes Lord Speak for your servant is listening.’ God spoke to this prophet child in training to deliver a hefty punishment message for the nation because God was very angry and fed up with 2 greedy men in the temple. For their arrogance and disrespect shown to God and worshipers was appalling. As children of privileged high society disregarded God so behaved badly towards their father the High Priest, worshipers, priests and the nation.burnt-offering-11

They felt so proud and thought they were above God and temple protocol. Their aged blind father the prophet Eli could not control his sons Hophni and Phinehas who were rebellious, so showed no respect for their father’s office. They were very greedy and selfish so gluttony caused them to first serve themselves from largest best portions of the meat sacrificed to God even before God’s portion was dedicated on altar by the worshipers. These adults priests are supposed to protect God’s sanctuary and set a good example but all too often, some prey on worshipers. 741 They practiced temple prostitution by copying the heathen nations. So they took advantage of the women dedicated and vowed to serve God in the temple by defiling and sexually abusing them. The leaders of the theocratic nation did nothing to stop them so God was very angry and disappointed so let the whole nation be defeated in war. These two priests were killed and shock of their death killed pregnant wives and Eli their father the High priest. This little boy Samuel understood consequences of God’s judgment so at first hesitated to tell Eli yet bravely faced them. So prophet Eli prompted him to deliver the sad news. Instead of Eli calling nation to repent and fast like Nineveh to plead God’s mercy and forgiveness Eli gave up. Hophni and Phinehas had wives yet strayed without self – control.story5Yet, in Genesis 39:1-12, a child star Joseph who heard God’s voice clearly through dreams, respected and honoured God by refusing Portipher’s wife’s advances, saying he ‘will not sin against God.’ Joseph realized his body was God’s Holy Temple so did not defile himself or destroy his destiny to damage God’s call on his life if compromised with sin. Joseph had no father, mother or siblings and was a slave so the perfect candidate desperate for love, affection and comfort for relief. Joseph would have ended up like Hophni and Phinehas when devil tried to tempt him in his most vulnerable moment in life. Joseph was young, handsome, single, yet pure so walked in holiness to Glorify God.

Jesus did and used to save mankind from sin to restore people to God. So did the little boy share his lunch happily and got extra reward surplus God gave back. The boy Samuel heard God clearly and perfectly in evident manifested consequences in the history of the nation. God uses a child star to bless, heal, deliver and protect a nation that trains them to obey, love and follow God. A child star is still used by God to save nations today so listen to them. Honour and teach them correct way of God through Christ Jesus,  Best and Greatest example of a child star ever- living. So did Miriam a young girl risk her life to be willingly used by God to protect her baby brother Moses hidden on a river.Princess Finds The Basket As a child star in the Bible is in Exodus 2, Mariam kept a watchful eye on her baby brother hidden inside a reed basket coated with tar on the river Nile. Miriam boldly talked to Pharaoh’s daughter the princess who found baby Moses and rescued him from drowning from the Nile river. Miriam’s bravery and quick thinking saved Moses so his mother was allowed to be nanny living in palace to raise baby Moses. Again God used the young boy David, who bravely faced the giant Goliath in 1 Samuel 17 and defeated Philistines. God’s spirit strengthened David to fight when the veteran seasoned warriors cowered in fear for their lives. In Mark 14, God used a young girl watching Peter warm himself by a fire to prompt Peter about the promise he made to Jesus never to forget or let Him down. She identified Peter, having seen and heard Peter preach and minister there at times. She boldly faced to challenge him, “You were with Nazarene, Jesus!” Peter denied Jesus as cock crow signal confirmed prophecy of Jesus. An outstanding story is loyalty friendship covenant is Jonathan and David’s love for each other closer than brotherly love. Unlike Peter, Jonathan denied himself to acknowledge God ordained anointing upon David to be King. So Jonathan willingly swapped royal garments with David to promote God’s work. This infuriated King Saul, Jonathan’s father who accused him of condoning with the enemy to self destruct the kingdom due him for inheritance. Jonathan’s action of loyalty became a generational blessing to Jonathan’s son years later. Accidentally disabled as child, Mephibosheth was remembered by the powerful King David who sent convoy with chariots to save from Lodebar into a privileged position to seat and eat with King David for the rest of his life. So one good turn deserves another as Jonathan helped the child star David become future king so help build nation of Israel. Similarly God used a young girl Joan of Arc in France to build nation as shown here . Joan of Arc was a young girl used by God in living history to win victories expected from adults yet sacrificed. Other women like judge Deborah, Yaa Asantewaa of Ghana in Ashanti Gold Coast times, Queen Nanny of Maroons in 1685 – 1755, a Jamaican National well-known leader origin from West Africa, contributed tremendously in history. Young girls or boys play active roles in nation’s victory remembered in yearly commemoration celebrate their sacrifice for the peace of the nation. Lots of unsung heroes sacrifice lives still today like these child stars to protect the nations globally. It is worth thanking God for such lives acknowledging their families who pay costly price to preserve other lives. Jephthah’s daughter is such child star. This child star virgin girl welcomes with father Jephthah as shown above from 1858, oil on canvas, bequest of Charles Knox Smith. Jephthah’s daughter in Judges 11:34 agreed with father’s rash vow thank offering given to God after victory in battle. Running to welcome father to find she was vowed as sacrifice for nation’s victory. Jephthah met on return by only child tore his clothes and cried my daughter brought victory with sorrow.

It was common practice to sacrifice virgins as God asked Abraham to sacrifice Isaac. God required animal sacrifices to provide a temporary covering of sins and to foreshadow the perfect and complete sacrifice of Jesus Christ in Leviticus 4:35. Animal sacrifice was important in Scripture because “without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins in Hebrews 9:22. When Adam and Eve sinned, animals were killed by God to provide clothing for them in Genesis 3:21. Cain and Abel brought sacrifices to God yet Cain’s unacceptable because he brought fruit, while Abel’s was accepted as it was “firstborn of his flock” in Genesis 4:4-5. After flood, Noah sacrificed animals to God in Genesis 8:20-21 thanksgiving. Others sacrificed before battle to seek help or during adversity to stop it. So it cost Jephthah daughters life by father’s pledge to honour God after victory. Others replace a human sacrifice with sheep and scapegoats but in Hebrews 10:4, it is written “it is not possible the blood of bulls and of goats to take away sins so the ultimate blood sacrifice for salvation is Jesus Christ the greatest child star of them all. Animal sacrifices stopped with Jesus Christ the ultimate sacrificial substitute once for all time in Hebrews 7:27 so now Christ is the only mediator between God and people in 1 Timothy 2:5. So the greatest gospel privilege is Christ is punished instead of sinner so the remission of sin takes the weight and guilt of shame from the sinner. Christ removes every handwriting of ordinances and laws out of the saved person and nails it to the cross never to be condemned. This gives direct access to God’s forgiveness of sins through our Lord Jesus. Christ paid the price for all sin as The High Priest so made reconciliation for forgiveness of all people. Christ the High Priest made Sacrifice Atonement Reconciliation to God.

DANCE FOR GOD

david-before-the-ark King David danced to thank, praise, worship God in celebration of all the great and mighty victories God won for nation. King David humbled himself, jumped freely up and down dancing to glorify God. This action of David impressed God because usually a king sits down to watch dancers perform in their honour. David set aside protocol Honour God. His wife was offended for David dancing in such manner so accussed David of embarrassing himself. This blame of King David cost his wife to become barren because she was not pleased about King David’s dance for God. Similar opinions and various views exist on different churches about what constitutes praise and worship of God. Some accept all forms of musical instruments including those found in Psalm 150:1-6, the Psalm of praise using trumpet, psaltery, harp, timbrel, stringed instruments, loud cymbals and the dance.Image

To worship God accordingly liberates mind, body and soul in God’s presence and does good like a gym fitness exercise does to the physical body. This recreates refreshing times engrossed deeply in the joy of the by totally focussing on God in that moment. When we think of all that God has done for us by counting all our blessings of life breath in us, ability to eat, talk, walk, enjoy the blessings of family, loved ones, friends, work, colleagues it is beyond description in words. Give thanks to God in all things to praise and worship God daily.Image

Many musicians spend many hours in the studio perfecting the sound of music and writing songs until right note is hit for great composition. Doing this takes hours or days and in some cases years to complete. A maestro uses all talents and abilities to write, edit, record in different genre, mix, remix until the whole world is soon listening to the song on radio, DVD, CD, iPod, phone, singing lyrics along song. The music is set to dance form, or other forms as desired. King David as a great lover of music composed all the Psalms in Bible played as music on his harp to worship God.showroom_500x500

Music meant a lot to King David as it soothes his soul and consoles the spirit. He played mostly as a lonely young man keeping sheep yet remembered God in such times. Most churches use different music forms suitable for each ocassion. Globally various intruments unique to particular cultures. Indian churches and Chinese Dong Pipa songs use traditional style music for heritage songs. Most global music in general become hit some fixate so play it religiously everyday. Others remember playing it during engagement proposal, wedding songs, parties. Pretty soon composer is surprised by turn of events of popularity of music. Adapted by nations as favourite, played by the orchestra for years from generation to generation. Lyrics celebrate magnificence and majestic glory of God.

ImageGreat orhestras all over the world celebrate God by their style of praise and worship in a formal pre arranged and rehearsed manner. On the other hand some people prefer a more traditional type of music. Using local musical instruments suitable to their environment to celebrate God. Some are folk traditional songs composed about the majesty of God in local languages. They may be written or passed down as oral traditional dance songs sung daily or on special ocassions only.Image This is due to their personal taste, choices, familiar shapes used and also sometimes more convenient typical instruments. To the outsider, such methods used to worship and celebrate God according to their lifestyle way and understanding is different to them but makes perfect sense to God. Each one has a choice made depending on personal tastes or the nurturing impact from their community. So some prefer freestyle music, rap, reggae, gospel, hip hop, hand clapping shouting or total silence in the presence. God is All Things to all people so any chosen form centred on praising and worshipping God is acceptable to God for He created all forms and put songs in hearts including those not up to other’s people’s taste or approved dance style.Image

On the other hand some prefer total silence to ‘praise and worship’ God Who said be still and know I am God. So some seat down in quietness to reflect and meditate on God’s words so allow the presence of God to descend in their midst. So are such believers in spirit of unity with one accord through the Holy Spirit that God manifests. Some start shaking with the Holy Spirit upon them, some sing or laugh. So earned the name the shakers.Image Whatever the preferred method accepted each is in the presence of God who approves of their approach to Him ultimately. As long as the Bible and Christ is at the centre of the heart of worship and adoration of God, Christians need to bless each other instead of enmity on doctrine and style. dancing9999

Man sees the outward appearance and look but God sees deeper into sincere and genuine love of God expressed in various ways to praise and worship God. No particular approach or form of worship and style is above or beneath the other. It is all about Sovereignty of God not mere gathering for entertainment of people. God comes first in all areas of life including praise, worship and dance in church to celebrate Christ through Holy Spirit.

ROLLER COASTER FAITH

Psalm 139:2 says, God you know when I sit down and when I stand up my thoughts are known to you. For the Christian believer, there are days one sits down in perfect rest, comfortably in presence of God at peace. Then there days and times one is literary standing on the word of God holding on by faith, confident God will do it again to Glorify His Mighty Holy Name. During up days when one feels in charge and control by faith feeling great. One smiles and sings joyfully to praise and thank God. The sun and flowers seem brighter in such times feeling wonderful happy God remembers you. In the up times life is easy at its best so like a roller coaster one stays up enjoying every moment. Such days one feels on top of the world, like walking on sunshine, able to handle anything that comes up easily. Such experience is compared to the joy and excitement felt especially in riding roller coasters. Others describe up euphoria moments as priceless treasures beyond description. In such a state one becomes oblivious to issues in life full of joy like trusting children. Believers are like little children in the Kingdom of God. Although challenges loom large like Goliath God protects us in Jesus Name.TusenFryd park in Oslo, Norway

The child of God is to have confidence in God for the battle is the Lord’s. When one feels miniscious like a little roller facing a daunting overbearing and tough Goliath yet God lifts us up in the spirit realm to become strong in the power of God’s might to win. Like the above appropriately named Goliath roller coaster in Gurnee Illinois currently the tallest in world, one feels moments of hype in Christ which is even greater to the thrill of roller coaster. Again the other side of the coin means dealing with the challenges seemingly looming large as this roller coaster. Described as the roller coaster for dare devils it is interesting people are willing to ride it for adventure thrill seeking. Christians often doing the work of God overcome in midst of challenges from world strengthened in Christ and victorious. The following rock & roller roller coasters is designed to be age and height appropriate with restrictions that come in all forms. So God looks out for our safety and general well-being giving guideline commandments and regulations. God gives us liberty in Christians life at times to decide the best suitable roller coasters by carefully following Godly instructions. This also includes joy, peace, love, self-control, health issues, emotion, pain, trauma, dizziness, recovery, healing for thriving to ensure rider is not compromised on ride as in life to promote healthy lifestyle. To avoid trigger caused by rumbling onus is on both a roller coaster rider or company to be entertained safely.

Similarly, a believer’s life feels  like putting oneself on the biggest roller coasters ever ridden. It is full of leaps and bounds, uplifting, exhilaration, fun, joy, laughter and playfulness. The peak moments include beautiful all the magnificent scenic views, gorgeous towers and landmarks impossible to see from the ground. Christianity spiritually speaking has highest moments in faith when one gets closer in the spirit nearer God for deeper relationship. So roller coaster riders feel on top of the world by having such good times though, rising and falling many times in the process yet landing safely.

People party and eat on some roller coasters to celebrate special events. The type of roller coaster designed to serve meals and stop mid – air for a while have special features required. Some turn riders upside down just as life turns turns the Christian’s life upside down for a season. Pictures taken commemorate the day as an unforgettable memory to remember to share with friends and family. The stories of such experiences are shared again and again like gospel gossip message.

While settling to take more pictures to enjoy the moment, sometimes prepaid time limited ticket require one to stop to enjoying more of this wonderful moment, suddenly to go back down the roller coaster. In fact in such valley moments in life, Christ and the angels keep believers safely to gently be let back down due to announcement made to come down carefully. As one exists, others get ready to climb up again into same place to ride again to repeat same process. The brave and daring pay again to hang in there to enjoy more joyful moments again until touchdown.

Some travel the world to enjoy various types of roller coasters. From the tallest in the world to the smallest ones thrill seekers have been there, done that so got the T-shirt to prove it. So many fantastic images are put together to to invite and encourage others to help fully understand the fun and functions of roller coasters. Until a person actually rides a roller coaster to fully understand a poster picture, it is meaningless. Christians are presented with chosen lifestyle according to God’s standards and expectations. Until one tastes to see goodness of God in the land of the living, it may not make sense. The bible is love letter God gives to assure believers He loves them and cares.

Amazingly thrill seekers want higher and taller roller coaster options to ride and enjoy. So does God want Christian believers to seek a higher standard of faith to live from glory to glory in Jesus Name. Although roller coasters may not always be everyone’s cup of tea, those who love to ride describe it as a unique experience that cannot be compared to anything else. So the Living God cannot be compared to other deities. Christ is in a super mega giant league of His Own as Son of God and the Word turned man and resurrected. It is interesting action faith life lessons can be learned through roller coaster experiences.

GOD’S JIGSAW PUZZLE

CrossHeart1denominationsGod sent Christ Jesus to save Christian believers to follow Jesus the Saviour. The Christian lifestyle feels at times like biggest 32,000 and 24,000 jigsaw puzzle pictures made from many pieces. God-given pictures by God at different times to complete are like jigsaw puzzle an image. God starts with sample picture of a small easy one for starters to put together pieces. These are quickly assembled by experienced in a matter of seconds. Others on the other hand, take a bit longer to accomplish in minutes while putting together the clues of shapes, sizes, or colour codes of a picture. Such is life in general and for a Christian believer faith requires patience, focus, endurance, interest and love and tolerance of others and self. We can do so through Christ Jesus who strengthens us and first loved us to enable us to continue in faith. Often attempts are made to have insight into some parts of a jigsaw grouped together. So this is then used to create an altogether bigger picture which takes hours, years, months, life-time achievement to complete. images (14)Some may require extra focus and the concentration with no distractions to see details better. Most require determination to keep it carefully in a safe place so not to knock it over to start all over again. Such is real life to continue to keep on keeping on until a bigger picture is glimpsed at. The picture seen is intricate each puzzle piece no matter how small, it makes a lot of difference to the whole big picture. The word of God leads, guides, directs believers line by line precept by precept. It is faithfulness in small things leading to bigger roles in life. God could give total victory all at once to His Children but if it happens could not handle victory. CO-006-World-Jigsaw-PuzzleThey would become a victim of their own success, overwhelmed, tired exhausted with maintaining the demands of that type of success so it will destroy them. This is all because they were not prepared or ready for such a gigantic victory so needs fruit of Holy Spirit. So precept upon precept God guides Christian believers to follow great example of obedience through Christ. For God so loves the world He Gave His Only Begotten Son Christ Jesus so all who believe in Christ will not perish but have everlasting life. Christ completed first assignment God gave to save souls. So Christians assemble in various parts of jigsaw puzzle world to save life. There are such times when God also reveals through His words the plans for us in small measures of life pictures to follow guidelines in small steps for mankind. psalmThen as faith muscles grow God grants giant leap of faith steps through audio-visual images to help reflect His perspective to help us lead our lives in the direction pointed. God uses His words, visions, dreams, symbols, tokens to reflect message at particular times in stages of obedience. Sometimes the jigsaw picture pieces are messages and clues jumbled up with a whole load of other similar pieces irrelevant to the one at hand. So it is not easy to follow always the glorious blessings of God. This is mixed with ideas and instructions or thoughts needing decluttering before one reaches jigsaw final text God put into teamwork spirit. Each small piece is carefully observed, analysed to ensure it fits perfectly. images (15)One cannot grab any similar looking piece to fix in place until it is the correct right one. Life decisions or options are carefully reflected for motives and thoughts before a decision or commitment is made. So requires patience focus, total concentration and power of endurance with perseverance skills to build the ultimate picture desired. Other occasions bring jigsaw piece mixture introduced to enhance picture at hand. Yet it does not fit perfectly the into exact shape needed to complete the precise image required. Those days when one does not know where to start, begin with God by seeking His Face to guide the thoughts and decision-making process. Each piece of information seems ideal and appropriate but not sure of how turns out as end result is not clear from onset but start anyway with help of the team.five-men-jigsaw-puzzles-22154150

Every person is unique so never feels left out-of-place to fit into God’s Bigger Picture of Life. Even if the head becomes filled with difficulties, each piece vying for priority attention, address each one at a time. Spend precious time to ponder over the hardest puzzles first of all. Where to begin, whom to share problems with to confide without betrayal. Can one afford to bear burdens alone or find the Divine connections to team up to solve problems? Some spend sleepless hours at night wondering how to hold on until joy comes in the morning. The hardest jigsaw puzzle of life suddenly turns up unannounced with pressure stress urgency to deal with it immediately. It makes life complicated and so intense and unbearable at times. One in moment feels like tearing hair out in pain.

puz3However there is a saviour for all broken-hearted, battered and bruised who comforts and heals. So place all the pieces of jigsaw problems of life together to present the various pieces of each jigsaw puzzle of all aspects of life to God. Lay it all the table before God and give Christ access to all areas of personal life, social or community issues. God is interested in each minute part insignificant to you.

Suddenly one receives wisdom from above, with understanding to discern and gain Godly knowledge to handle challenges better. One can do impossible beyond strength.

FOCUS ON HEAVENLY VIEW

images (4)jesus-ruling-1Heaven view is the Biblical final frontier the Christians experience in long – awaited Godly Heavenly Kingdom as stated in Bible in 2 Corinthians 5:8, in the Presence of God. Heaven is a beautiful place of perfect joy, blissful worship, praise and perpetual celebration which cannot be compared to the greatest happiness on earth. God is TRULY LOVE, WONDERFUL, AND THE GREATEST SOURCE OF LOVE, JOY, PEACE. God is truly tangible and evident to those who love and seek Him. God is not to blame, for it is since sin entered God’s Perfect world created, mankind changed life to become short-lived.

_kirkjustjori_notendur_thorhallur_my_documents_my_pictures_god_jesus_throne_cat_rel_hist_02roberttbarrettGod is broken-hearted and disappointed mankind chose to obey the devil in the garden of Eden through Adam and Eve. God still loves people so much He yearns and still cares about them. God sent Christ in John 3:16 to come into the world to declare and share good news to save Christian believers to restore eternal life through Christ Jesus.  Thousands of saints and angels worship God daily. As messengers God despatches them to earth to carry out His Instructions. Christian believers live as Christ tarries so continue to have heaven within their hearts. Heaven is still daily expressed outwardly in love of God, fellow human beings. Worship, prayers and thanksgiving is given to God in the Christian meetings attended through Holy Spirit with born again believers in sweet fellowship. The final frontier rapture anticipates those saved and free at last from challenges of the world to be with God in heaven. The Spirit of God helps believers to pray for healing, inner peace, deliverance, to intercede, to minister to help save souls. Billions of faithful angels are in heaven sent daily by God as messengers on behalf of people to help them, They bring miracles so as the praises go up, God’s Glory comes down to deliver, heal, save, provide miracles in Jesus name.Heavenly worship is similar to the Christian praise and worship concerts but 1000 times better. Those who pass have soul and spirit ascend to God clothed in heaven with new garments of righteousness but fleshly body remains on earth.

The peace, joy loved ones enjoy is amazing, so all pain and sorrow from earth vanishes. Worship from the crowd on earth pleases God so much and so will heavenly worship be 1000 times more celebration of the Sovereignty of God. As believers become refreshed in the presence of God with joy forevermore, so is heavenly bliss eternal and glorious with  joy, laughter and dancing.  People become youthful again and reunite with loved ones, to continue worship as they see God in Heaven. There is perfect peace, radiant joy, no sorrow, grief, pain or crying. The one who snatches loved ones is defeated as people longing and yearning for heaven enjoy worship on earth.
