Many Blessings to the remnant of God

ComforterI'm new to this web-site, and I just want to praise God having a body of people who take God at his word and believe just what it says.  My convictions the Lord has laid on my heart regarding his Lovely Character has brought me to my knees in longing for Jesus.  When I first became a follower of Christ, some 10-11 years ago I memorized the following verse...

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only beggotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but hav everlasting life"  John 3:16

It's not until the last year that I really and whole heartidly saw what this promise was saying to me, see the following...

"For God (The Father) so loved the world, that he gave his only beggotten Son (The Son of the Father, Jeshuah), that whosoever believeth in him (Jesus) should not perish, but hav everlasting life (John 17:3)"  John 3:16

When the Lord revealed this simple promise to me, it reveal God's relationship with his dear Son, and the Son's relationship with his Father.  It showed me of a merciful "Dad" or "Daddy-Abba" as the Father is to the Son, but also-by inheritance, of the Son of the Living God, his Fatherly care over us (Isaiah 9:6).  We see in the man Jesus a divine revelation of both himself and his Father, yet we see his submission to the "...only true God...".  We alsosee the wonderful plan of salvation, in connection with the sanctuary, all in one verse (John 3:16).

We see in this promise the wonderful gift of everlasting life, in connection with John 17:3, of "..that they may know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou has sent."  We can safely see that Christ thought it not robbery to be equal with God, yet on the other hand says" Father is Greater than I" (John 14). 
Here we can associate ourselves with our Great High Priest, in that he was, is and always will be Son of God, which by his righteous blood and by adoption has made us sons and daughters of Jehovah.  This is a beutiful way of identity and association we have with our Father, and with his dear Son.

"For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that through him they might be saved."John 3:17

To those who live in Darkness, and feel like they are helpless, those who have no hope and have loss their indentity, to those who cannot see past the portal of time and space, to those who are longing for one who listens and understands, I point you to the man who once was slain for our sorrows...the Man Jesus Christ "...Behold, the Lamb of God who taketh away the sins of the world..."

There is nothing to heavy for his hand to carry, nothing to burden for him to bear.

There is nothing un-noticed for him to see, nothing too quite to hear.

By his humanity he gives us the strength to obey, by his divinity he gives us strength to have the victory.

May the Lord of Host bless you today as you remember his great sacrifice...Jesus
