Crucifixion and Resurrection

The night before Jesus sweated blood
knowing His fate of beatings and Crucifixion.
He was sentenced to suffer for our sin,
the collective sin of all men.
Our sin sunk each nail deeper.
But, Jesus took the punishment
we all deserved to take.
The broke His heavenly body,
they lashed his back forty times.
He was beaten for our transgressions
and crucified for our offences.
But, Jesus thought of each of us
during the hours of pain he
suffered on the Cross at Calvary,
Amazing Grace how sweet the sound.
Jesus was the Word
and the Word was God,
They didn’t kill him at Calvary,
For Jesus died when He gave up the Spirit.
His legs ne’er were broken as consequence.
Our healing of all diseases
were due to the 40 lashes of the Romans,
Jesus took the fervent judgement of God
upon Him to spare the lives of all
that would confess their sins
and ask for forgiveness.
He was the Spotless Lamb
and the Lion of the Tribe of Judah.
What is Ultimate Love?
Sacrifice, laying down one's life
for the lives of all His friends.
Thank you, O' King of Kings
Lord of Lords, O' Most High.
For Jesus has Risen.
And is the Savior of All Men, and Women.

Jesus: The Most Loving Husband

For many years and years, I wanted to find someone to marry and fall in love with. I had an abusive childhood filled with fear, hate and emotional abuse from my father. I was also sexually abused when I was really young by a woman. The deep longing for someone was nothing no one could ever fill. There was a hole in my soul only Jesus could fill. It is that way with everyone. People try to fill it with all kinds of things, but it is hole that only Jesus can fill. He fills it with His love and grace, and He shows you how to really love yourself. Jesus’s love is the loves combined into one. Agape love, heavenly love only Jesus can give, fulfills the love of romantic, family, friends and the love of mankind. His presence, which He blesses with me a lot of the time, only gets sweeter.

Honestly, as a woman, Jesus’s love has been all encompassing. He listens to my bullsh*t (pardon the French) as a father, as a Husband, as a friend and never tires of my voice. God never tires of hearing my voice or anyone’s voice (Isaiah 40:28). Yes, it seems hard for men to relate to Jesus as a spouse, but why more women don’t fully dive into that pool of complete love is beyond me. It’s perfectly fine to do so.

Falling in love with Jesus really feels romantic at times. It isn’t sexual, but certainly made me feel sexual in way that is beyond imagination. Jesus is not sexual, but, in me, at least, it fulfills that desire somehow. Jesus’s love is so deep eventually you dive into His water’s of tranquility until you are overwhelmed with a passion beyond what you ever dreamed possible. Yes, I’ve definitely had romantic feelings for Jesus. But, it is more that I want His beautiful, tranquil presence and Him touching my inner core of being than anything. He can touch your heart in a way that makes you melt. God the Father can do that, too. And, the Holy Spirit touching your core is all three of them touching it at the same time. It is far beyond anything like lovemaking. It is Jesus nourishing your soul with Himself that causes all kinds of feelings. It’s like getting lost in this benevolent feeling of love so immense you can never contain it and just have to let it overflow your being. As humans, I think we are scared of being so love that God counts the very hairs on our head (Luke 12:7)

Since we are soul, spirit and body, Jesus, as a Husband, fulfills all those needs. Eventually, you will think about God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit all the time. If you want to know how much Jesus loves you, look no further than the Song of Solomon, minus the sexual parts. That really is Jesus’s love letter to all Christians, male or female. Remember, when you get saved, you are getting married. Human marriage, which some see as rapture, is nothing compared to the spiritual marriage to Jesus Christ. Only a few ever surrender completely to Jesus. I did. That’s when you find the riches of your marriage to Jesus Christ. He hung on a Cross for each and every one of us. And, while Jesus hung on that Cross, He thought of each and every one of us, as unbelievable as that sounds. Well, He is God come in the flesh.

It all started when God called me Rachel in a dream. I knew then He got me. It was acceptance. And, a few more things He did showed me just how much God cared about me and how much He, Jesus and the Holy Spirit loved me. I say a lot of the time, when I get up, Good morning, my Husband. In Isaiah 54:5, God reveals His true nature to us: “For thy Maker is thine husband; the Lord of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.” (KJV) God is three and three are One. At the end, I believe, when I get to heaven, I will find the marvelous Godhead is Jesus sitting on a throne of gold. In Jesus is completeness so immense that it saturates you with His beauty and magnificence. God is amazing and a loving Heavenly Father that gave His Son that we should not perish but have eternal life through Christ Jesus who loved us first. As a nun, as a woman, as a Jew, I’m in total awe and in love with all three. God is the father I always needed, Jesus the Husband I always wanted, and the Holy Spirit, Jesus’s Spirit, is the best friend I always dreamed of. And, together as one, they are the love of my soul that I always desired. It was in God that I found me. I can’t wait till the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

You are God's prized possession and Satan HATES YOU! Honestly, has Satan ever done anything for you? Really? Nope, not one thing! Jesus, on the other hand, has paved the way for us with complete and utter victory over everything, especially Satan and his ilk. When Jesus died on the Cross, he took away the sin of the world. We only have to repent and ask Jesus into our heart to be born again.

Do you want to go to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, or burn for all eternity?

Do you know Jesus?

Well, it is easy to know him and experience his undying, unfathomable love and affection.

He came and died for you.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) (KJV)

There is no greater love than Jesus.

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13) (KJV)

Accept Him today if you don't know him.

Sinner's Prayer

"Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior."
Now, go and tell someone and welcome to His Kingdom.

The Holy Spirit Baptism is a gift. Just pray, "God, I accept the Holy Spirit as a gift and welcome Him into my being. Thank and praise you Jesus for the Holy Spirit." In these dark times, you need the Holy Spirit right after getting saved.

Amen and Hallelujah.
