    Good Neighbors from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the importance of being a good neighbor. Ever since Adam and Eve had kids and one killed the other, it has been an ongoing thing, learning to live with one another. Most of the ten commandments are about how we tr...

    When I kept silence, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy on me. My strength was sapped in the heat of summer. Selah. I acknowledged my sin to you. I didn't hide my iniquity. I said, I will confess my transgressions to Yahweh, and you forgave t...

The God of the Universe

  • John answered them, 'I baptize in water, but among you stands one whom you don't know. He is the one who comes after me, who is preferred before me, whose sandal strap I'm not worthy to loosen.' These things were done in Bethany beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing. The next day, he saw Jesus coming to him, and said, 'Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!' John 1:26 WEB

    Adam and Eve disobeyed the Lord's one commandment while living in the garden of Eden and caused a rift between man and God for ages. Then God sent His only begotten Son Jesus to heal this, to buy us back. The perfect sacrifice, Jesus took all the sin of the world onto Himself when He died on the cross.

    Just as one man created the wound, one perfect Man healed it. The word 'world' in this verse is 'Kosmos', meaning universe. Jesus took away the sin of the universe. Though He did this over two thousand years ago, every sin that your great grandchildren will commit has already been paid for, even if they live on Mars. For He is God of the universe.

    Still, forgiveness is not automatic. You actually have to ask for it. 'If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us the sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness' (1 John 1:8).

    You may have many problems in your life, but a sin problem is not one of them. No matter what you have done in your life, simply say, 'God forgive me', and then try your best to stop doing it. Jesus suffered for You and has already paid the price because God thought you were worth dying for. You are worth dying for. Never look down at yourself, for He would have died just for you.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please forgive me of my sins and the things that I have done wrong in my life. Come into my heart and lead me from this day onward. Help me make the right decisions and open the right door for me, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

I have sid this before, but it bears repeating. God is not Santa Clause contrarey to popular belief. He is a loving, forgiving God, but it is up to us. All we need to do is ask for forgiveness in repentance. Repentance means that we make a choice to turn away from sin or lawlessness, and look to God for our direction. God's promises are so real, they are just provisional on our making a decision. Then He will forgive our sins through His perfect sacrafice.

Love hearing about Kosmos...wow expands forgiveness of sin into universe!  So we sound to have brothers and sisters in Christ out there!  Wonder if they have a cell phone to text with or some technology to communicate?  Just stretching the world into the universe with this new definition.  Praise God from Whom all blessings flow.,...

Thank you Lord Jesus for paying so dearly for me, you suffered and died, suffered total abandonment on the cross as you called out to the Father, who could not look at sin, the horrific sins of the entire world "... why have you forsaken me?" Thank you Lord Jesus!!!
