I know the names of your parents, your children, your brothers and sisters, your friends, your neighbors, your work colleagues, and your classmates.
I know when you go out, for I am by your side. I know when you come home; I am there waiting.
I share your joys, your sorrows, I understand your troubles, your fears, your confusion.
When you are threatened, abused, and neglected, I feel the pain, I experience the loneliness. When you get hurt, I flinch.
I understand when you feel like giving up. When you want to give it all away. When you want to do nothing but scream, and throw rocks in retaliation. When you would do anything just to be free from the suffering, the pain, then it is that time when I love you the most. Then is the time I would gather you as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings. Then is the time I would surround you with My love and compassion. Then is the time to come to Me, and I will hug you and comfort you.
I love nothing more than to be involved in your world. I know everything there is to know about you, and there is nothing you can do, neglect, think, or say, that will stop Me from loving you. My entire being is focused on seeing you through your troubles, on being your closest friend, confidante, and companion, all to the express purpose of bringing you home with Me when I come.
I will see you through your time of trial. Every one of your tears leaves it's stain upon My cheek. Every cry you utter I echo before My Father. And together, we will see you through to the other end.
Do not fear. Do not worry. I have been where you are. I have felt what you are feeling. I have experienced the injustice, the abuse, the slander, the pain, the suffering and even the death you fear.
But I now live, and My life is now focused on ensuring that you also shall live with Me. So be not afraid. Be strong. Be of good cheer. Rejoice even because you name is written upon MY book. I am bigger than your greatest fear. I am your Maker, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, and there is nothing I will with-hold from you that is to your good.
Make Me your hope, your trust, your fortress. I will not fail you.
Your name is on MY list. It is embossed upon My book, "The Lamb's Book of Life", and if you overcome , it will never be removed. ]]>

Law and the Christian https://bibleforums.org/entry.php/934-Law-and-the-Christian Tue, 19 Aug 2008 07:57:35 GMT How was Israel saved? By works? No. By the law? No.
They were saved by the blood of the Passover Lamb. In order to be saved by that blood they had to have faith in God's word that:
a. There was a definite threat of death.(Rom 6:23)
b. That the application of the blood of the Lamb would indeed protect them.
" For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:".
It was after they were saved that God showed them His law. They could not bypass Sinai. "This is how you now must live" God said. Obey Me and live, and I will lead you to the promised land. What happened to those who did not obey? They fell in the wilderness. "But they had the blood of the Lamb to cover them" some may say. That was not enough was it.Disobedience nullified the blood and they entered not into God's promises.
These things were written for our example,that we may learn from them.
Heb 4:11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

Now that we are saved also by the blood of the Passover Lamb let us not bypass Sinai or think that we can ignore God's requirements. Know assuredly that those who do, though they may claim salvation, will not enter in to the promised land. ]]>

Perspectives from the South Pacific https://bibleforums.org/entry.php/773-Perspectives-from-the-South-Pacific Tue, 10 Jun 2008 09:48:40 GMT Blog. Just the name put me off. But I guess when there is new technology and it needs a name, all the best ones are taken. Oh well. So it seems everyone has one these days, and who wants to be left out?
So here I am. In case some of you don't know where New Zealand is,(and not many, unsurprisingly do) it is a small island country way down in the South Pacific, about 1000 miles east of Australia and not much more than that north of the antarctic.
I believe there are about 5 1/2million born and bred New Zealanders (Kiwis) living in the world. Only 3/4 of that number are still here. I million Kiwis live in Australia, and if the statistics are correct, 40,000 thousand more crossing the big ditch every year.
It has been said that that phenomenon has the effect of increasing the average IQ of both countries.:hmm:
So why, after all this time, have I decided to become a blogger? (Actually, that doesn't sound too bad after all; Ive been called worse.:blush:) Probably to further satisfy my fetish for writing. And perhaps to express a few ideas and perspectives on life that don't quite fit into the forums.
I have no idea where all this might lead
but my hope is that anyone silly enough to bother reading my blog would at worst, be entertained, and at best, be informed. So welcome to my life, and thankyou in advance for taking an interest. ]]>
