confession

When Jesus went to the cross He forgave us all our sins by nailing them to His cross and dying for them. As soon as you became a believer every sin of your life was washed away in His precious blood.

Confessing our sins will restore our submission to God, by admitting and agreeing with Him that what we did was sinful.  1 John 1:9 says if we confess our sins He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

Our pastor (Dan) teaches us how to repent well, “Repent quickly and repent often.”

The Telegraph: “Human life begins in bright flash of light as a sperm meets an egg, scientists have shown for the first time, after capturing the astonishing ‘fireworks’ on film.

An explosion of tiny sparks erupts from the egg at the exact moment of conception.

Scientists had seen the phenomenon occur in other animals but it is the first time is has been also shown to happen in humans.”

Opinion: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was in the beginning with God.  All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.  In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.  And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.”

letter

Breaking Israel News: “Every year, hundreds of letters addressed only “To God”, sent from around the world, are delivered straight to God’s house. Where is that? Jerusalem, of course!

In Hebrew, in English, and in dozens of other languages, the envelopes arrive. Written on them: “To God”, “לאלוהים”, “Our Father in Heaven”, “Kotel”, “Temple Mount”, and many more. The letters make their way to the Israel Post Office’s Lost and Found, but the journey doesn’t end there.

Twice annually, these letters are collected by the Post Office and hand-delivered to God’s front door: the Western Wall, known also as the Kotel – the last surviving remnant of the Holy Temples which stood on the Mount over 2,000 years ago, and which God designated as his dwelling-place.

Before Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year, and again before Christmas, each note is carefully squeezed between the stones of the ancient wall in hopes that God will listen – and answer.”

Opinion: As interesting as this is, it does not compare to the eternal God hearing our prayers:

  • Psalms 34:17
  • Psalm 65:2
  • Psalm 66:19-20
  • Proverbs 15:29
  • 2 Chronicles 7:14
  • Hebrews 4:15-16
  • Hebrews 11:6

Do you know Him?

A progressive professor of Harvard Law School declares: “The culture wars are over; they lost, we won….taking a hard line (“You lost, live with it”) is better than trying to accommodate the losers.”  There will be
