What Different People Said..

Luke 19:10
For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.

Esther 4:14
And who knows but that you have come to this royal position for such a time as this?

John 14:27
Peace I leave with you, My peace I give you. I do not give as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

Leviticus 11:12
Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you.

Great verses!

And here's some of my favorites ~

1 Peter 3:3-4
3Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. 4Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.

Hebrews 12:1
Let us strip off every weight that slows us down… And let us run with endurance the race that God has set out before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus on whom our faith depends from the start to the finish.

The verse above really helped me one day. You can read about it HERE

John 15:18-19
If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.

Just an idea,

Isaiah 52:13 – 53:12

I am way overdue a post on here...

These verses really stuck out to me when I was doing my Bible reading one night.

Isaiah 52:13 – 53:12
See, my servant will prosper;
he will be highly exalted.
But many were amazed when they saw him.
His face was so disfigured he seemed hardly human,
and from his appearance, one would scarcely know he was a man.
And he will startle many nations.
Kings will stand speechless in his presence.
For they will see what they had not been told;
they will understand what they had not heard about
Who has believed our message?
To whom has the LORD revealed his powerful arm?
My servant grew up in the LORD’s presence like a tender green shoot,
like a root in dry ground.
There was nothing beautiful or majestic about his appearance,
nothing to attract us to him.

He was despised and rejected—
a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief.
We turned our backs on him and looked the other way.
He was despised, and we did not care.
Yet it was our weaknesses he carried;
it was our sorrows that weighed him down.
And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God,
a punishment for his own sins!
But he was pierced for our rebellion,
crushed for our sins.

He was beaten so we could be whole.
He was whipped so we could be healed.
All of us, like sheep, have strayed away.
We have left God’s paths to follow our own.
Yet the LORD laid on him
the sins of us all.
He was oppressed and treated harshly,
yet he never said a word.
He was led like a lamb to the slaughter.
And as a sheep is silent before the shearers,
he did not open his mouth.
Unjustly condemned,
he was led away.

No one cared that he died without descendants,
that his life was cut short in midstream.
But he was struck down
for the rebellion of my people.
He had done no wrong
and had never deceived anyone.
But he was buried like a criminal;
he was put in a rich man’s grave.
But it was the LORD’s good plan to crush him
and cause him grief.
Yet when his life is made an offering for sin,
he will have many descendants.
He will enjoy a long life,
and the LORD’s good plan will prosper in his hands.
When he sees all that is accomplished by his anguish,
he will be satisfied.

And because of his experience,
my righteous servant will make it possible
for many to be counted righteous,

for he will bear all their sins.
I will give him the honors of a victorious soldier,
because he exposed himself to death.
He was counted among the rebels.
He bore the sins of many and interceded for rebels.

Lifehouse Everything Skit

Sorry I haven't posted in FOREVER.

This movie is slightly, umm...advanced? Gruesome? for some people, but I still recommend you watch it.

In the beginning of the movie, the girl is walking with God, and He is giving her everything she needs. He is blessing her with various things and making her happy. Then she gets tempted and sins with a man, and gets tempted by the world and Satan with money, alcohol, beauty, and other things. She has turned far from God, and you notice as you watch the Jesus in the movie, that He is "pulling for her" the whole time, even as she sins and "falls short of the glory of God". As she is tempted to commit suicide she remembers Jesus and tries to run for him, but the worldly things hold her back. However, Jesus fights for her as she sits and praises God, and eventually the things that tempted her are gone, because God helped her. Notice how in the beginning of the movie she wears a black shirt? At the end it's white because Jesus washed away her sins, and although she did some horrible things, God STILL FORGAVE HER. He just loved her in the end.

Our God is so awesome. I am always really touched when I watch this movie, because it's so moving. I got chills when I watched it again today, and I know it's because the Holy Spirit was speaking to me, and told me, that whenever we face temptations or sin in this world, WE CAN ALWAYS turn to Jesus, he will be there, helping us through anything we may face, as long as we LOVE HIM. Imagine-he's like a free life insurance, all you have to do is follow the commandments and strive to always do God's will. Man, it saddens me to think there are SO many people in this world who don't know God, don't have the nice protection of knowing Jesus as their Savior who is always there for them...

Anyway, I hoped this movie and my explanation helped you, and that the Holy Spirit may have touched you in this way. God Bless!
