Peace Project

What is Christmas to you? Personally I love Christmas very much because it’s the official beginning of the long promised peace project between God and humanity . Looking at the fact that while we were God’s enemies living in sin he sent his only son to come and be judged for our sins so that they can be peace between him and us is crazy .

Man sinned , messed up, went against God , God had all the rights to be angry with us, wipe out the entire human race and start over again or create other perfect creatures. Yet, in our imperfections he sent Jesus his only son who is holy and perfect to come and pay for our sin so the peace between him and us can be as restored . He loves humankind that much he sacrificed his only son for us!

This is why I call Christmas the peace Project because it on that silent night that it all began. It’s the birth of Jesus that takes us to his death and resurrection. It’s all starts with the birth of Jesus that Grace also comes in . Christmas is really huge to me it’s like one if not the biggest day on the calendar ….

The whole concept of this Peace Project is just too much 😭!

Merry Christmas

God loves us with everlasting love

Whatever looks contrary is a set up

ABOUT JESUS AND THE CROSS

One time after the Isrealites had spoken against God and against Moses the Lord sent fiery serpents ( poisonous snakes) into their camp as a punishment. They bit the people. There was much weeping and crying among them, for it was painful, deadly bite. The people came to moses and said we have sinned for we have spoken against the Lord and you . Pray unto the Lord that he take away the serpents.

Moses prayed for the people and God responded. The Lord told Moses to make a brazen serpent and set it upon a pole so that everyone could see it . God promised that whoever was bitten by the snake when they look up to the pole they will be healed . This came to pass those who looked at the pole where healed . If we notice the people first acknowledged their sins and where sorry . Then God healed them …. This shows that we need to take the bold step and acknowledge our sins first .

Sin, like the bite of the poisonous snakes, is very deadly . There is only one cure for it- the cleansing by the blood of Jesus Christ. Our heavenly father has provided this way to heal all who have been bitten by Satan: that is all who have sinned .looking unto the cross is our only hope . He was nailed to the cross and shed his blood for our remission of sins .

Actually Jesus Himself in John 3:14-15 said “And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert [on a pole], so must [so it is necessary that] the Son of Man be lifted up [on the cross], In order that everyone who believes in Him [who cleaves to Him, trusts Him, and relies on Him] may not perish, but have eternal life and [actually] live forever! Look unto the Lord and you will be saved

WILL YOU LOOK?

A SAVIOR WITHOUT RIVAL !

Jesus who is fully God is our Savior. The God we serve is a God without Rival. He is a God with no competition or challenge he is a God without Rival. Jesus is our God and Savior he is the Alpha and Omega the beginning and the end Good and forgiving and living in his love that stretches from everlasting to everlasting! This is the same God who created you and me and see what he said before creating us.

Genesis 1:26
[26]God said, Let Us [Father, Son, and Holy Spirit] make mankind in Our image, after Our likeness, and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the [tame] beasts, and over all of the earth, and over everything that creeps upon the earth.

I am most interested in the first line “let us make mankind in our image” and what’s one of the image of God? He is without Rival . The God without Rival created his Children Without Rival! A God without Rival didn’t create his precious children with Rival No! This is why God’s love is neither same nor measurable it’s Unique. It’s unique none of us is irreplaceable because we all play a unique role to him !

When you accept Jesus as your personal lord and Savior he immediately embrace the without Rival character out of you . Stop looking around to find your identity NO! You are a child without Rival there’s no competition for your place in God’s heart or on this Earth . You are called to do something only you can and will ever do . You are a child without Rival because you serve a Savior without Rival!

“CECIE’S LULLABY”

No Better Friend Than Him

Listening to this song made me realise at times I substituted the best friend ever for just any other friend. We all can testify that Jesus has been a father for a very long time and no one has ever been a better friend than him . But how come when life becomes hard for us we run to our friends, earthly parents or people we know have connections first? Instead of him the best friend of all times?

Call My name and I will answer
All you need is here inside My arms
Just breathe and you’ll be safe and sound with Me
‘Cause no one knows you better than Me
And no one’s been a better Friend
So rockabye baby, come and rest
You’ve been tired lately, lay your head down
Don’t you think, baby, I know best?
I’ve been a Father for a long time

Jesus who is fully God loves us and he wants us to rest in him. To be Honest we all get messed by life at times and there times when we feel like giving up or there’s no hope. This is why Jesus is calling us to trust in him and not in man . The person you might think of trusting, them too life messes them up. Only God the Alpha and Omega has been a father and best friend since forever just Trust and rest in him!

So rockabye baby, come and rest
You’ve been tired lately, lay your head down
Don’t you think, baby, I know best?
I’ve been a Father for a long time

And no one knows you better than Me
No one’s been a better Friend
Baby, no one knows you better than Me
No one’s been a better Friend

Jesus Christ the man from Galile is calling us to come the way we are to him and rest in him and his finished work . It doesn’t matter what you have been through immediately you run to him he is ready to run after you, hug you and give you welcoming kisses. He is ready to leave the 99 for you alone All he wants is you to rest in him!

Matthew 11:28
[28]Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.]

MY HIGH PRIEST

Who is your high Priest ? Now I think the best question before one answers that one is who is a High Priest? A high priest is someone who represents people to God. His righteousness or sinfulness determines his people too . When the high Priest is cursed it’s automatic the people are cursed too , if the high Priest is blessed it’s automatic the people are blessed too.

A high Priest is really important. We see in the old Testament how the High Priest played a major role . Now in the New Testament there’s a new High Priest. Remember the righteousness or sinfulness of the priest determines the people he represents. Who is our new High Priest?

Hebrews 4:14
[14]Inasmuch then as we have a great High Priest Who has [already] ascended and passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession [of faith in Him].

Jesus is my High Priest . He is the alpha and Omega of righteousness, he is the Alpha and Omega of blessings and guess what? By the virtue if him being my high priest me too I possess all this 😊. It’s not because I earned it or maybe I deserve it, it’s because of his Grace and love upon me . I am now called the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN CHRIST not that my works make me but because Of him being my High Priest , who is your high Priest ?

In the Old Testament the High Priest never use to rest because the work was never done but now my High Priest is seated at the right hand of the father resting not because he is tired but because he has finished all the work , this means my work is done too . Jesus is my High Priest. I really love him because he loved me first and in him I find my rest

Hebrews 8:1
[1]NOW THE main point of what we have to say is this: We have such a High Priest, One Who is seated at the right hand of the majestic [God] in heaven,

Now I want this Jesus to be your High Priest it’s simple all you need is to make him the Lord of your life ! Who is your high Priest?

JESUS FRIEND OF SINNERS

Jesus is the son of God who is fully God , apart from been fully God he is fully man seated at the right hand of the father in Heaven. He became man when he came on earth and from then upto now he has been man and God . There’s one thing I love about him during his time on earth . Look at what the law keepers called him .

Luke 7:34
[34]The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, Behold, a Man Who is a glutton and a wine drinker, a friend of tax collectors and notorious sinners.

“A FRIEND OF SINNERS” Jesus is worthy , holy, righteous and perfect yet he was called a friend of sinners and actually he is still a friend of sinners . He loves each and every person despite their fault . There’s nothing we can do to make him love us more or less his love is constant. He loves us because he is love Jesus is perfect but he finds nothing wrong about been among imperfect people .

Actually Jesus finds pleasure when he is among sinners . He gives them what they have been longing for . He is the Anti virus to the virus that has infected the people to become sinners . Jesus loves the sinner but Hates the sin . Never ever feel unworthy before Jesus no matter what you do he is a friend of sinners too. He knows he’s the one with the Anti virus you need .

If your your beloved had cancer you would still love them but Hate the cancer on them . This is the same case with Jesus and sinners he loves the sinner but Hates the sin in them . He treasures been among them because he knows he is the Anti virus to the sin in the sinners . Jesus loves you and me not because of what we do but because he is love and a friend of sinners!
