This is a continuation of my thoughts on a statement Oprah made on her talk show. Please read part 1 and 2 before you read this.
Oprah’s statment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8eODlrxD0EM&feature=fvst
I would also like to say here that I have no ill will towards Oprah herself…only this statement and her why behind it. She has done so many great things with her life and I truly respect her for that. This will probably be my last blog on the statement.
Jesus gave up His life so that we mortals can have eternal life. We are flawed and require a sacrifice to be right with God. Everybody has and will have a chance to accept Jesus or not….that is a person’s choice. You cannot see God without Jesus Christ…this is not my random thoughts… it’s in the bible…so it comes down to believing what the bible says which is Gods words to us and the Holy Spirit confirmation of His word to our spirit man.
Jesus was human when He came down to earth for His ministry and to be a human sacrifice for mans soul. Do you think He really wanted to be so brutally tortured and murdered? Why did He willing give up His own life?…….This is the answer……He did it out of His “LOVE” for us.
Ephesians 5:2 and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
Can anyone really understand the amount of Love Jesus has for us? I have felt the love of Jesus in a very unique way which will be in my book I have written about my unusual experiences with the Lord in prayer…but I want to tell you a small piece of it now.
In a vision I had in prayer I got to experience the love of Jesus. All I want to say at this time is I felt a microscopic drop of it and it was taking love and multiplying it by a trillion times a trillion….It was so overwhelming that I simply didn’t want it to stop and I no longer want to be earth-bound, but the Lord told me I had more work to do here so….here I am…writing this blog. Writing this experience on the blog cannot really express what I felt that day. It’s hard to explain such an emotionally deep experience.
When I first started my prayer experiences with the Lord I saw a vision of Jesus eyes as a boy. They were large brown eyes and the Love I saw in those eyes is still in my brain as if I just saw it today and this was 24 years ago. (I believe Jesus was teaching me to keep my eyes on Him)
Jesus is love….His life here on earth was all about love. His life points to the Father who is love. Am I special because these things happened to me?……..No way!!!!! Look at this scripture:
John 14:21 Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”
I believed this when I became a committed Christian…..I wanted to see Jesus…..and it’s possible to see and experience Him here on earth and when it’s my time to be up there……I’m going to see Him….I’m going to look right into His loving eyes and He is going to hug me and welcome me home to the place He has prepared for me.
So…what about Jesus?…..well He is the key that unlocks the door and enables anybody to receive Him and gain entrance to heaven to be with His Father, Himself and the Holy Spirit.
My mom and my baby brother whom I’ve never seen are waiting for me. Thank you Jesus…Thank you for all you’ve done for me!….I love you so!
Message for today: It is…all about Jesus.
