“IT ALL goes back to Him,” she said. “It all went back to Him the first time when you first came to me.” “Jesus? ” Yes.” That’s what it tends to do.” “That’s what everything tends to do–go back to Him. The entire age is timed to the reckoning of His birth, every human event, and every moment of our lives. Even America — was founded because of Him and dedicated to His purposes. Even the city on the hill, America’s founding vision — it wasn’t Winthrop who came up with it, it was Jesus. ” In the end, it is about us.
The above words are excerpts from Jonathan Cahn’s THE HARBINGER 2 — the next to last chapter titled THE LAMB, beginning on pg 262. What follows is the most beautiful testimony concerning Jesus, one of the most touching I have ever experienced. My intention in recounting this testimony is that you will be as warmly touched by The Holy Spirit as I have been.
After presenting this to you my friends, if I never write another word, I will be content in having shared this with you, hats off to Jonathan Chan.
The Justice of God is found in judgment –but the heart of God you find in the cross, in the Lamb. God is love, and the greatest love is that which gives itself, puts itself in our place, bears our pain and sorrows, takes our hell and judgment, that we would never know it, that we would be saved. That’s the heart of God. So when we speak of judgment, remember, God is the one who bears all judgment on Himself that we would never have to. God is the love and the Lamb. The justice of God is found in judgment–but the heart of God you find in the cross, in the Lamb. God is love and the greatest love is that which gives itself, puts itself in our place, bears our pain and sorrows takes our h*** and judgment, that we would never know it, that we would be saved. That’s the heart of God. So when we speak of judgment, remember God is the one who bears all judgment on Himself that we would never have to. God is the love and love is the Lamb. REPEATED ON PURPOSE.
All these things are reminders of how short, how fragile, and fleeting life is. We live our lives just one heartbeat away from death. Friends, God is not far from you. This is not a hard thing to do. All you have to do is come to Him who is love… who died for your sins, who took your judgment and overcame death so you could have eternal life … to receive Him, to receive His love, His forgiveness, His cleansing, His presence, His resurrection, His power, His Spirit, His peace, and His blessings … into your heart … and let it touch every part of your life. And then you follow in His footsteps. It’s as it was on Passover, you walk through that doorway, ( door posts marked with blood to safety) you leave everything old behind and when you come out of that doorway everything becomes new “like being born again.”
Every breath is borrowed, a gift from Him who gave us life and the only one who can give us life again. Choose life.
