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. 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 sin (Genesis 22:8) and He doesn’t remember any of them (Jeremiah 31:34).
The purpose of this website is to assist people like you and myself and all others who need to know about God’s Great Love for them, 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, 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.
In short, God loves us so much that He came to earth to live as a sinless human so that He could die and shed His Precious blood, thereby paying the penalty that we all earn because of our sins so that we can come to experience the Joy of knowing Him and to live in His Presence always and forever. 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 most of them are thought for thought translations 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.- webservant~dan
This week’s Verse by Verse Bible teaching by Pastor Bob
Just a Thought…
Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. … (Luke 23:34 KJV)
Practically everyone who has spent much time in any church is familiar with this scripture. But what did Jesus mean when He spoke these words? I’m sure that most people believe that He was referring to the people who were present with Him that day who were directly responsible for His suffering and His consequential death that day on Golgotha. I am sure that this thinking is correct, but I am also certain that like everything else written in the Bible, there is much more meaning there than is openly apparent.
Yes, Jesus was referring to the people there with Him that day who had conspired against Him, lied about Him, and treated Him illegally in the ways they had him arrested, detained, questioned, and falsely accused although He was a totally innocent man. Have you ever stopped to think that perhaps it was not only those people that Jesus was asking forgiveness for, but that He also made that petition to God, that prayer, regarding you and me?
After all, we are, in the eyes of God, just as responsible for the sufferings of Jesus our Christ as were those people who had conspired against Him. We are just as responsible as those who stood by to watch and to rail against Him as He suffered being beaten worse than anyone has ever been beaten before, (as prophesied in Is. 52:14) and died on the cross. It was because of my sins and your sins and the sins of everybody who has ever lived or ever will live, that He suffered and shed His Innocent Blood that day on the cross. As God, He understood, that although we are guilty and worthy of death because of the sins that He was paying the penalty for; we don’t realize what we are actually doing when we sin, perhaps even unaware that we even committed any sin at times. In other words we "know not what we do…" when we sin, nor are we usually aware of the sacrifice that had to be made on our behalf because of that sin.
I am so glad that Jesus prayed that prayer for us on that day as He shed His blood for us on the cross. I am also glad that He continually intercedes for me as our Great High Priest in heaven when I do sin, whether I intentionally do it, or if I am unaware of it. No matter the circumstances, everyday we "know not what we do…" and every day Jesus is still asking God, our Father… "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.".
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.
