“Love and Faithfulness”
Through love and faithfulness sin is atoned for; through the fear of the Lord evil is avoided. Proverbs 16:6
Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” Luke 23:34
I believe that the CRUCIFIXION of Jesus Christ is a CLEAR and PRECISE picture of the LOVE and FAITHFULNESS of God, for the Crown of His Creation; MANKIND. Even while He hung on the cross, in the form of a man, BLOODY and BEATEN, He cried out, “Father, FORGIVE THEM, for they do not know what they are doing.”
His FORGIVENESS was given because of His LOVE and FAITHFULNESS for mankind. What kind of LOVE and FAITHFULNESS is it that would COMPEL someone to want FORGIVENESS for the ones who were inflicting such PAIN, MISERY, and HEARTACHE on the one hanging nearly naked, suspended above the earth? And having to endure the HUMILIATION, TAUNTING, JEERING, and INSULTS from the crowd of people passing by, stopping long enough to hurl their profanities and insults at the very ONE who created them.
It is a LOVE and FAITHFULNESS that we may NEVER understand, not in this life, anyway. But I, for one, am very THANKFUL that because of that LOVE and FAITHFULNESS, I have been SET FREE from my sins, and have been REDEEMED by the BLOOD of the LAMB, ADOPTED into the Family of God, and as His Child, I will spend ALL of ETERNITY in Heaven with God, my Heavenly Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ. Have you experienced the LOVE and FAITHFULNESS of God?
If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are headed for an ETERNITY in Hell, with ALL of its HORRORS. Let me tell you, there will NOT be any PARTY in Hell, the PARTY is in HEAVEN, as a matter of fact, it is a DINNER PARTY, and ONLY WHITE ROBES are allowed. In order to be a part of the DINNER PARTY in Heaven, you MUST TURN AWAY FROM your sins, and TURN TO God with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then you must ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and be INVITED to the DINNER PARTY in Heaven, wearing your WHITE ROBE, as a Child of the LIVING GOD. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
