Greetings Friend!

The Love of God is Awesome!!! His Love is much greater than you or I will ever be able to fully comprehend during our physical existence on this planet. Once we begin to understand the reality and the depth of the Love of God, we will never cease to be amazed at how much greater His Love actually is than we think we understand it to be at any given time. His Love is infinite, supernatural, never-ending, and unconditional. His Love never changes. He doesn’t get angry when we sin, He gave (provided) Himself, the necessary sacrifice to cover all our sins (Genesis 22:8)  and He doesn’t remember any of them (Jeremiah 31:34).

Billy Graham spoke of God’s Love like this:
As I read the Bible, I find love to be the supreme and dominant attribute of God. The promises of God’s love and forgiveness are as real, as sure, as positive, as human words can make them. But the total beauty of the ocean cannot be understood until it is seen, and it is the same with God’s love. Until you actually experience it, until you actually possess it, no one can describe its wonders to you.

Never question God’s great love, for it is as unchangeable a part of God as His holiness. Were it not for the love of God, none of us would ever have a chance in the future life. But God is love! And His love for us is everlasting. – Jeremiah 31:3

The purpose of this website is to assist people like you, myself and all others who need to know about God’s Great Love for us by providing resources which can help us to grow in knowing the never ending, Great Love that the Creator of all things has for us and for all of mankind and His creation. His Love is much deeper than any human is capable of even imagining, and it is totally unconditional. Because of His Great Love for us all (Romans 8:38-39), more than 2,000 years ago God took extraordinary measures to provide what was needed in order for us to be able to be with Him forever. Think about it, Jesus, the SON of GOD came to EARTH as a MAN and was crucified as a CRIMINAL although He was perfectly innocent. He did that FOR YOU!!!

In short, God loves us all so much that He came to earth to live as a sinless human (Hebrews 4:15) just so He could die and shed His Precious blood, thereby paying the  death penalty for us all that we ourselves earn because of our sins (John 1:29). He did that just to make it possible for us to have the opportunity to come to experience the Joy of knowing Him and to live in His Presence always and forever. Three days after He was maliciously murdered and buried He was raised back to life (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) and was later transported back to heaven as a divine human man where He to this day remains as our Great High Priest (Hebrews 8:1) and intervenes for us daily (Romans 8:34, 1 John 2:1). One day in the future He will return to this planet to rule over it as King of Kings (Revelation 14:14, 19:16)

No matter what we have ever thought or done, or will think or do, He is always waiting for us to look to Him and accept His sacrifice of Love for us all. There’s a good chance that our Loving Creator has led you to this web site without you even realizing He did so. Look to Him now to fill the emptiness you feel with more Real Love than you know is possible.

I pray that you will find the resources in these pages and those linked to from other websites helpful to you as you strive to learn more about God’s Great Love for you and for all the others He is drawing to Himself via this website.

I highly recommend the King James version Bible as it is the most accurate english language word for word translation available that was derived from the original Greek text. If you find that version difficult to read, here is a guide that should be helpful to you, or you can try the New King James version which is the second most reliable translation, and is easier to read. I discourage using most other translations as the majority of them are thought for thought translations, and they were not made from the original Greek text.  Although they may be easier to read and understand, most are not reliable translations, based on another Greek text written later than the original. Some of them change the meaning of the thought from the original text entirely or even omit parts of the text.

I heard the audio below more than a year after writing this section about Bible versions and this Pastor’s thoughts are the same as mine are concerning Bible versions.

If you are comfortable and satisfied reading the version of  God’s Word that you have been reading, keep reading it. The important thing is that, no matter the version you have or that you choose, read it. Just be aware that the “modern versions” have been altered from the original text received from God. That being said, God will speak to your heart as you read His Word, and the Being with intelligence enough to design and create you, the universe, and all that is in it is intelligent enough to communicate His message to you no matter how man has corrupted the translation you may be using. As long as you read the Bible, He will speak to your heart. And as stated in the image above this text, “Read it again!!!”.  God may reveal a truth to you that you didn’t notice before. A truth that He knew your mind was not ready to receive when you read a certain passage at an earlier time. The most important thing is…

READ YOUR BIBLE!!!

This book will keep you from sin…   Sin will keep you from this book.

7  “You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.

8  “You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.

Just a Thought…
from the desk of webservant~dan


9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

(Revelation 12:9 NKJV)

I quite frequently become concerned when I hear or read thoughts from others that say something along the lines of “As Christians we do not sin.”. That is one the most effective lies that satan uses in his attempts to destroy God’s called out ones.

Many church-goers as well as some who stay away from churches believe that we are sinners because we sin. The fact is, according to God’s Word in Romans 3:23 as well as in other scriptures, that WE SIN BECAUSE WE ARE SINNERS.

We all sin, we of our own strength cannot help it. It’s in our DNA which was altered by God after Adam and Eve submitted to the lie from satan in the garden of Eden.

To think that as Christians we stop sinning shows that Satan has deceived us. In reality, as Christians we only stop sinning WILLINGLY. The truth is that WE ALL ARE SINNERS. We will and do sin because the flesh is indeed weak.

Just sayin’…

Thank God that He told Paul as recorded in 2 Corinthians 12:9, “My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.”.

The Love of God is Awesome!!!

 

Love, the summation of God’s laws –  “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. (Deut. 11:13) This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. (Lev. 19:18)  On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”  Matthew 22:37-40 NKJV

The message of God’s law is: be loving. Love God fully. Love others sacrificially. – Bob Hoekstra

Psalm 1 (KJV)

THE WAY OF THE RIGHTEOUS AND THE END OF THE UNGODLY

1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
