Amazing Grace.

We've all heard this song at least once in our life. One of the most beautiful, most original songs every wrote. It is one that can transform the heart of any man, yet the most callused, hardened, of heart. It is about a man who gave it all. A MAN who carries still today the weight of the world on his shoulders. It is by his purpose we wake up to the precious breath of life every day or lay our heads down at night. His name is one of the greatest ever spoken, conceived by a virgin, being place there by the will of GOD. It is none other than the son of GOD, the Lord Jesus Christ. That once you find that, AMAZING GRACE.

The picture below depicts Jesus carrying Cross, the weight of the world on his shoulders.

The words are as follows-

Amazing Grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found
Was blind, but now I see.

'Twas Grace that taught my heart to fear,
And Grace my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils, and snares
I have already come.
'Tis Grace hath brought me safe thus far

And Grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me.
His Word my hope secures.

He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures.

When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun,

We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we'd first begun

The word amazing means- Inspiring, awe! The word grace means- "God's grace is manifested in the salvation of sinners. Salvation just what does it mean- the act of delivering from sin or saving from evil.

Friends I have in my lifetime, seen demon possessed men and women break down and cry out to the words of this song when sang. I have seen rich, (not wealthy), men crumble at its verses. I have seen sinners such as I break down and cry like babies. What causes this is none other than the grace of GOD being manifested through His Son, Jesus Christ. The only way to get to grace is as Jesus spoke.

John 6:44 says the following- No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. A lot of people don't believe there is a God, or believe in His Son Jesus, mostly because we live in a material world, it has been for hundreds of year. There are those who worship the sun and moon, some worship Buddha, Isis, cows, trees, and so on. As I was saying a lot of people don't believe in God, Because they cant see, hear and feel him. A lot don't believe in Him because of things that happen in the world there is a time for everything. I want everyone to know that what I write about Christianity is my belief and in no way trying to change anyone's beliefs or religion, or judging anyone.

We have thousands of churches in the United States, as also in the world, and I speak this by permission, as did Paul in 1 Corinthians 7:6, when he said, "I speak this by permission and not by commandment". But about, (and I say about), 1/2 the people or brethren in the church are there just taking up space.Were you can go to the alter a sinner and leave a sinner. GOD knows all things, its just that simple. And I am not being judgmental, just stating facts, but that will be okay, GOD will sort it out at the end. Because what the bible says, No one can come to Jesus lest the spirit OF THE FATHER draws him. It is by GOD's AMAZING GRACE that any one is saved.

2 Corinthians 12:9- And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. The song speaks of great strength of proportions within this song is everything GOD said he would do once you are saved. We added the picture of Jesus carrying the cross, to some it means nothing but to a lot it means everything. THE day they hung Him on the Cross He hoisted the weight of the world on his shoulders. Jesus spoke and said my grace is sufficient that once you except my grace I will help you with your troubles. No where in the word of GOD does it ever say it would be easy, there will be days, trials and temptations, not even a promise of things on a silver platter. A lot of people give up before He even has a chance to help out.

JAMES 1:2-4
[2] My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; [3] Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. [4] But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. The scripture is pretty self explanatory, (or instructive), that when we are faced with trials and temptations, that when you come through them you will be stronger and wanting nothing, He will provide your needs. It's His AMAZING Grace once again, His Awesome Grace.

Amazing Grace tells what goes on once one has found Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Like we said earlier, he never said anything about being a child of God would be easy, (He never said it) but those who goes through the trials and temptations, will be stronger for it.

The day I found Jesus as my savior was a day that the cares that I had became irrelevant, the things I was guilty of didn't matter anymore. I was pardoned my sin. Thank you GOD for your Grace that set me free. I will pray Lord that in the days to come in all of our troublesome times ahead keep us under the shelter of your wing. Lord and I understand that I must come before the throne of Grace everyday to be forgiven my daily sins. Friends, Christ still carries the weight today. Hasn't nothing changed. Find his Grace while He is still near.

Friends it will only be by the Grace of GOD, that any will be when Christ comes back. The Bible tells us that it is not GOD's will that any should perish, but all come to find Christ as their savior. His grace will be forever. Let us pray for one another and others that they may find GOD's grace. Amen.

until again
jesseb's anything goes.

Shalom and Peace to Israel
