Jesus is the Light!

Everything and I do mean everything that we have on this earth can be made into a parable to understand the ways of God. Take for instance our ways of traveling.  Roads, signs, bridges etc….  There are roads and on these roads are all sorts of signs that help us get to where we are going.  Life itself is a road and if we look around we can see signs everywhere that show us where we are going. If we ignore those signs we get lost and or suffer consequences. Sometimes that is death or an accident.  The same holds true with life in general and the paths we choose to take. 

The Bible says there is only one way to get to Heaven and that is through Jesus Christ! Jesus said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me.” (John 14:6)  One can take the wrong road and go someplace else besides Heaven if they do not follow the signs that God has given us!  The signs are all around us!  The world is in darkness and cannot see and some refuse to see these signs.  

The bible says that the wages of sin is death.  Most people have within their own hearts a moral compass that shows them what sin is. They know when they are doing right and when they are doing wrong.  This is built in to us because God created us that way!  It shows too as a lot of people that don’t even know Jesus as Lord are basically good hearted people. But it is also obvious that there are some that shut that compass off or decide not to pay attention to it.  😦  Sadly these people will follow the wrong path which ultimately leads to death.  

If you are seeking the right path know this.  Jesus is the light!  He will show you that path.  It isn’t that hard to understand really.  The biggest problem most times is our own foolish pride and or ego.  Some people think that Jesus is a crutch.  I am here to tell you right now that if He is I need that crutch!  But He really isn’t a crutch, He is a rock!  Jesus is THE ROCK on which I choose to build my life!  My faith is in Him and Him alone. There is no other way than through Him to reach the Father and this I know in my heart.  If you don’t know Jesus as the Lord of your life please do not wait any longer to seek Him out.  Time is short now and the time of Grace is nearing the end. Don’t wait until it is too late and you are thinking: I should have listened to those people I thought were crazy.  Jesus loves you! You have everything to gain and nothing to lose. It is a decision that you will never regret.

Matthew 7:7-8 (KJV)

7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Psalm 89 Remembering the Covenant with David, and Sorrow for Lost Blessings

Psalm 89

New King James Version (NKJV)

A Contemplation[a] of Ethan the Ezrahite.

89 I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever;
With my mouth will I make known Your faithfulness to all generations.
For I have said, “Mercy shall be built up forever;
Your faithfulness You shall establish in the very heavens.”

“I have made a covenant with My chosen,
I have sworn to My servant David:
‘Your seed I will establish forever,
And build up your throne to all generations.’” Selah

And the heavens will praise Your wonders, O Lord;
Your faithfulness also in the assembly of the saints.
For who in the heavens can be compared to the Lord?
Who among the sons of the mighty can be likened to theLord?
God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints,
And to be held in reverence by all those around Him.
Lord God of hosts,
Who is mighty like You, O Lord?
Your faithfulness also surrounds You.
You rule the raging of the sea;
When its waves rise, You still them.
10 You have broken Rahab in pieces, as one who is slain;
You have scattered Your enemies with Your mighty arm.

11 The heavens are Yours, the earth also is Yours;
The world and all its fullness, You have founded them.
12 The north and the south, You have created them;
Tabor and Hermon rejoice in Your name.
13 You have a mighty arm;
Strong is Your hand, and high is Your right hand.
14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne;
Mercy and truth go before Your face.
15 Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound!
They walk, O Lord, in the light of Your countenance.
16 In Your name they rejoice all day long,
And in Your righteousness they are exalted.
17 For You are the glory of their strength,
And in Your favor our horn is exalted.
18 For our shield belongs to the Lord,
And our king to the Holy One of Israel.

19 Then You spoke in a vision to Your holy one,[b]
And said: “I have given help to one who is mighty;
I have exalted one chosen from the people.
20 I have found My servant David;
With My holy oil I have anointed him,
21 With whom My hand shall be established;
Also My arm shall strengthen him.
22 The enemy shall not outwit him,
Nor the son of wickedness afflict him.
23 I will beat down his foes before his face,
And plague those who hate him.

24 “But My faithfulness and My mercy shall be with him,
And in My name his horn shall be exalted.
25 Also I will set his hand over the sea,
And his right hand over the rivers.
26 He shall cry to Me, ‘You are my Father,
My God, and the rock of my salvation.’
27 Also I will make him My firstborn,
The highest of the kings of the earth.
28 My mercy I will keep for him forever,
And My covenant shall stand firm with him.
29 His seed also I will make to endure forever,
And his throne as the days of heaven.

30 “If his sons forsake My law
And do not walk in My judgments,
31 If they break My statutes
And do not keep My commandments,
32 Then I will punish their transgression with the rod,
And their iniquity with stripes.
33 Nevertheless My lovingkindness I will not utterly take from him,
Nor allow My faithfulness to fail.
34 My covenant I will not break,
Nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips.
35 Once I have sworn by My holiness;
I will not lie to David:
36 His seed shall endure forever,
And his throne as the sun before Me;
37 It shall be established forever like the moon,
Even like the faithful witness in the sky.” Selah

38 But You have cast off and abhorred,
You have been furious with Your anointed.
39 You have renounced the covenant of Your servant;
You have profaned his crown by casting it to the ground.
40 You have broken down all his hedges;
You have brought his strongholds to ruin.
41 All who pass by the way plunder him;
He is a reproach to his neighbors.
42 You have exalted the right hand of his adversaries;
You have made all his enemies rejoice.
43 You have also turned back the edge of his sword,
And have not sustained him in the battle.
44 You have made his glory cease,
And cast his throne down to the ground.
45 The days of his youth You have shortened;
You have covered him with shame. Selah

46 How long, Lord?
Will You hide Yourself forever?
Will Your wrath burn like fire?
47 Remember how short my time is;
For what futility have You created all the children of men?
48 What man can live and not see death?
Can he deliver his life from the power of the grave?Selah

49 Lord, where are Your former lovingkindnesses,
Which You swore to David in Your truth?
50 Remember, Lord, the reproach of Your servants—
How I bear in my bosom the reproach of all the many peoples,
51 With which Your enemies have reproached, O Lord,
With which they have reproached the footsteps of Your anointed.

52 Blessed be the Lord forevermore!
Amen and Amen.
