Hello again!

The year marches on and we find life takes detours we would rather not take. But God is good and gives peace in the midst of those detours! I am hoping to become a regular on WordPress again as my life takes on more normalcy. Now as I approach Christmas and a New Year, I am grateful that God became a man to bring life and peace to men. May He bring life and peace to you this season.

WHO IS THIS JESUS?

Who is this Jesus, He who came
to earth from heav’n in human garb,
proclaimed Himself as one with God,
and died for men. Against men’s barbs

of unbelief, He called himself,
“I am”—the name of God, the One
Creator God who made all things
that now exist. He is the Son,

and He is God who rules all things.
When time is done, His righteousness
will rule and all will bend the knee
for He will end all wickedness.

Who is this Jesus, He who came
to earth from heav’n in human form
to bring true life to men on earth,
to give to all a bright new morn.

ENTRY OF THE KING

PALM SUNDAY!

Jesus’s entry into Jerusalem–the King of the Jews prophesied in Zechariah 9:9 in the Bible: “Rejoice, greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.” The people who greeted him spread palm branches and cried, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest” (Matthew 21:9).  Their actions were based on a hope for physical victory over their Roman captors. However, Jesus, God incarnate, came to die and then rise, king of a spiritual kingdom; the prophecies about physical victory are yet for the future. As I go through trials and suffering, I know that these are not all my life consists of. Because Jesus came then as a king and because he will rule physically as a king when he comes again, I know good things are ahead! Restoration to life of all things is coming!
