What are you facing today? Are you innocent and someone you trusted in has sold you out, and now your reputation is in question? Have all your close friends deserted you because of this?
Are you before the Judge and those accusing you want your blood?
Have you been declared guilty when you've done nothing wrong?
Is the judgment on your innocent person more than your body can take?
You are spat upon, your whipped till flesh falls off your back, and to top it off they thrust thorns like barbed wire into your innocent head and ridicule you.
Not finished yet- they then make you carry a heavy wooden cross to staple you on. Then leave you to die- while some brave few women look on in remorse and pity?
Not a great day- to start a kingdom-it doesn't make sense to our senses how this one person (called GOD) would do this to prevent our own guilty judgment and to pay our price for sin on Himself!
But He did because He who created all life knows- HELL is real and wants to keep us from going there! Don't let what His LOVE paid the price for be in vain- His declaration of love was to pay our debt- for free- all you have to do is simply believe and He gives you even that faith if you will let HIM.
He will then exchange your life for HIS and you will be totally new! A new start to forever be with HIM in paradise- He is coming soon to collect all who have availed themselves of this free gift- DON'T MISS OUT- HE ADORES YOU and has paid the price to set you free- none of us can be worthy enough- it is not our righteousness that will pay this amazing price of redemption- if there was another way- don't you think HE would have taken that way?
Be warned time is short- it could be your lifetime- but who knows how long that will be?
