Love Letter from God

Posted: February 14, 2011 in Prayers

John 3:16  For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him, shall not perish, but have everlasting life.

What does this really mean?  What does it say?  Perhaps you have heard it 1000 times, and you know the meaning….or never heard it before……but this Valentine’s Day, I am inclined to take the liberty of using it as a love letter.

Dear *insert your name here,

On this Valentine’s Day I want you to know how much I love you.  I have loved you since before you were even conceived in your Mother’s womb.  I see everything there is within you and know everything that will happen to you… forever.

I invite you……yes…..want you to spend eternity….beginning right now, with me.  In order to honor the rules I have made, I could not bring you to me unless I first dealt with your Sin.  Sin seperates you from me, and anyone who has ever sinned is not able to come to me.

The penalty for sin is death and since I could not break my own rules, I needed another solution to this problem.

I did this by sending my own Son, my only son, who is part of me to come to earth and to come on a level playing field.  He had to come as a mere man, into a world full of sin, full of betrayal, lying, hating, selfishness, and so many more sins.  He came to earth totally helpless, as a baby.  He had to grow up, become a man, and never ever commit a single sin.  He had to be perfect in order to do what I asked him to do.

First he turned water into wine, indicating that he did not have to wait for time to pass, but he was Me, and therefore had the power to overcome the rules of the earth.  My Son healed people who had been sick and blind and crippled as you so often are.

He called out to me and asked….Is there another way?  and I said no…there is no other way.  I sent an angel to strengthen Him before the big day.  He was taken and found innocent, but was sentenced to die.

I can’t tell you how my heart felt during this time.  You cannot even imagine what it is like to watch as your only son is beaten to within an inch of his life.  Beaten so badly that he was unrecognizable, then he was made to carry his own cross up the hill to the place where his earthly life would end on a viciously cruel cross.  I watched as the people I had sent him to the earth for, laughed at him, taunted him, spit on him, threw rocks at him, and eventually nailed him to a cross, naked, for all the world to see.

I then placed all the sins of the world’s people upon him. It was at that point that I had to draw back.  I could no longer see him, hear him, or show him my favor.  I had no choice but to forsake him.

He died on that cross, all alone…that day, in front of those who loved him and those who hated him….The King of the Jews was dead.  My Son was dead, and because he carried all those sins into death, he immediately went to hell, where he remained for a time.  I ripped the curtain in the Temple from the top down, and the sun quit shining, and an earthquake shook the earth.

All seemed lost to those who mourned for him, and he was laid to rest in a borrowed tomb.  My Son didn’t even have his own burial site….but then he wouldn’t need it for long.

Up from the grave he arose…..Triumphant!  He had won the peoples of the earth.  He was and is the ONLY super hero.  My Son…courageously laid down his life so that You ***Insert your name here** , would not have to suffer and die for your own sins.  Your sins went to my Son for you.

You now have two choices….

The first choice is to do nothing. The gift of my love is free, but if you do nothing, then you get nothing.  A gift must be received, accepted, picked up and opened.  Otherwise that gift is just a pretty box on the table that no one claims.

The second choice is to reach out and take the gift of life eternal, the gift of forgiveness for whatever sin you have in your life….past sins, present sin and future sin  NO SIN is stronger than my Son’s blood that was spilled.  All sins are forgiven to whoever would come asking and recognizing what My Son did for you.

When you take the gift, you become a new person,  fit and clean and able to draw near….You make a commitment that will last eternally if you will trust your life to the Gift….MY Son…JESUS.

Please make the choice to trust Jesus with your Soul….It is in safe hands!  I want to call you my Child…..because I love you!  Please come…..Please….

To those of you who already have…..I am glad you did…I have awesome plans for you and for your entire life!

My Love, forever and always,

GOD
