A Saturday Morning Spiritual Hymn!

Saturday, March 26, 2011

Gooooooooooood Morning SP Members! Thank You all for your wonderful responses and SP Goodies!

Today's hymn was a special request by one of our SP members. The words were created by Fanny J. Crosby in 1869, and the music by William H, Doane, also in 1869. The scripture that inspired Fanny to create this hymn came from John 19:25-26, "Now there stood by the cross his mother....". The title of the hymn: JESUS KEEP ME NEAR THE CROSS.

1. Jesus keep me near the cross, There a prescious fountain,
Free to all, a healing stream, Flows from Calvary's mountain. (REFRAIN).

2. Near the cross a trembling soul, Love and mercy found me,
There the Bright and Morning Star, Shed its beams around me. (REFRAIN).

3. Near the cross! O Lamb of God, Bring its scenes before me,
Help me walk from day to day With its shadows o'er me. (REFRAIN).

In the cross, in the cross, Be my glory ever,
Till my raptured soul shall find, Rest beyond the river.

May God Bless Each and Everyone of you with a Blissful weekend.
In His Love, Vic.

How wonderful a Refrain! For without His Cross, salvation for all would not exist. Thank You, Lord Jesus!

Thank you, Vic, for choosing such an inspirational song!
God bless,

A Friday Morning Prayer and Message!

Friday, March 25, 2011

Aloha SP Members! God is so goooooood! Give Him mall the praise, glory and honor today.

PRAYER: "Heavenly Father, Understanding God! You are the garden fountain, a well of flowing water, streaming down from heaven into our life. You refresh us with your Spirit; You overflow us with your healing stream of blessings and grace; You lift us up by the power of your word; and you wash away our sins so other can see your presence in us. Make us like You, a well of refreshing water flowing out to others. Even as You see Jesus in us, we pray others will see You in us, even if they do not fully understand what they are seeing. Help us to understand and see Jesus, not through the finite limitations of our physical eyes, but with the eyes of the heart, the Eyes of Faith. This we pray in the name of Jesus, our Savior, Amen!"

MESSAGE: The Challenge To believe In Jesus Continues! (Mark 5:21-43).
1. Vs 43 - Jesus commands two things:
a. "That no man should know what had just happenned". WHY? Because His glory was not in what he just did (Raise a girl from death), but in what He was going to do....Redeem us from our sins...(Raise us unto Life).
b. "Give the girl something to eat". Jesus is commanding us to feed on His word.
2, God is so gooooooooood!
a. He gave us His Son, Jesus Christ (John 3:16).
b. He sent His Son to us to die for our sins in order to redeem us from the destiny of death (Luke 19:10).
c. He has shown us that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, (in these four stories, Mark 4:35 thru 5:43).
d. He came to us from heaven, as He established and walked through the strait gate and narrow road which led Him to calvary, the cross, where He was crucified, died, buried, only to rise again on the third day, and return to heaven. He is preparing a place for us in heaven, and promised to return to take us home to heaven (John 14:1-4).
e. All along the Way, He has called us to follow Him. WHY? Because He is the Way, to heaven; He is the Truth, the Son of the Living God; and He is the Life, for those who seek Him and heaven; and no man can come to the Father except through Him, there is no other way (John 14:6).
3. What do you think about this? Understanding comes only through the Eyes of Faith. How you seeing today? "God is a Spirit, and they that wordhip Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth" (John 4:24).
May God continue to bless us and help us to understand His message of salvation.
In His Love, Grace and Mercy, Vic.

A Thursday Morning Prayer and Message!

Thursday, March 24, 2011

Happy Greetings SP Members! Sorry about yesteray. Our internet service went down and was out most of the day. But that's OK! SMILE! Jesus loves you.

PRAYER: Holy Father, Beloved God! You made everything beautiful in its own time. You set eternity in out hearts; yet, we cannot fanthom what you have done. Our timing is not the same as Yours. We expect answers right away. Teach us to be patient and wait for an answer from You. Help us to lay our concerns before You and leave them in Your capable hands. Enable us to rest in the knowledge that Your timing is always perfect, even as everything You do is perfect. Forgive us when we fall short of the mark. This we pray in the Blessed name of Jesus our Lord, Amen!"

MESSAGE: The Challenge To Believe In Jesus Continues! (Markk 5:21-43).
1. Vs 40 - Having been laughed to scorn:
a. Jesus put the crowd out of the house of Jarius.
b. Then He took Jarius, the wife, Peter, James and John and entered the room where the dead girl was lying.
2. Vs 41 - He took the dead girl by the hand and said unto her, "TALIHA CUMI", which is Aramaic and it means "Little girl, arise".
a. If Jesus can do what man cannot do, than He must be the Christ, the Son of the Living God, and that's Good News for you and me.
3. Vs 42 - "Straightway, the girl arose and walked".
a. The girl was twelve years old.
b. They that were in the room were astonished.
4. What do you think about this? Jesus calls us today, "CUMI (ARISE), and follow me". If we are not in Christ, are we not dead? It doesn't matter how old we are, whether we are young or old. Life is only in Christ Jesus, everything else exist but is dead (Eph 1:3). To Be Continued Tomorrow!
May all spiritual blessings that are found only in Christ, be ours today.
In His Grace, Vic.

MESSAGE: The Challenge To Believe In Jesus Continues! (Mark 5:21-43).
1. Who gave us the breath of life that enabled us to become a living soul? God did (In Gen 2:7).
a. So man is a living soul as long as the breath of God is in him.
b. When we take away that breath, that leaves only the living spirit.
2. What would you have done if you had been one in the crowd at Jarius' house?
a. Vs 40 - They laughed Him to scorn.
b. WHY? Because He had said, "The child is not dead, only sleeping".
c. They knew she was dead. There was no breath in her.
d. Jesus had been invited to come heal the girl....now she is dead.
e. What else could anybody else do?
3. What do you7 think about this? Are you like those in the crows? Do you believe in Jesus, but limit His powers? To Be Continued Tomorrow!

A Monday Morning Prayer and Message!

Monday, March 21, 2011

Greetings SP Members! Thank God for glorious days and praise His holy name!

PRAYER: " Beloved Father, Caring God! We know You detest the sacrifices of the wicked, but the prayers of the upright pleases You. We are grateful that You see us as rigtheous, not because of what we have done, but because of our relationship with Your Son, Our Lord; because we are in Christ when we pray; because we pray from the heart and in the spirit. We pray to You our thoughts, the words in our heart and mind, and the actions we are contemplating as we seek your wisdom and guidance. Enable us to always do what's right in Your sight, according to Your teachings and instructions. This we pray in the Blessed name of Jesus, our Savior, Amen!"

MESSAGE: The Challenge To Believe In Jesus Continues! (Mark 5:21-43).
1. Vs 39 - Jesus enters Jarius' house and says two things:
a. "Why are you making this ado (commotion) and weeping?"
b. "The damsel (child) is not dead, but sleeping".
2. It's important that we understand that "death" is not the end of "life".
a. In death, the soul is released from the body.
b. The destiny of the soul is that it will return to God, and God will determine whether to accept it into Hiseternal kingdom or to send it into eternal flames.
3. Jesus said, "The child is not dead, but sleeping".
a. Why did He say that?
b. What do you think about this? In the body, we are alive because there is breath and spirit in us. Who gave us that breath and spirit? To Be Continued Tomorrow!
May the love of God fill our heart, mind and soul with the understanding of the power and greatness of our God. God Bless, Vic.

    Good morning Sweetie,If only you knew what the big picture looked like. To GOD, death is a very necessary part of eternity. To your spirit, it would be like walking from one room to another.
I feel God does our spirit at death like as the flowers blooming during the spring and then fading away and die during winter. We may leave this earth but we spring up in heaven
