Get Ready, the Bridegroom Cometh! 

I believe in Jesus Christ. He is the Son of God. A Son unlike any other who left his throne to became as you and I. 
Walking among a crowd, he healed, taught and mended broken lives. Many believed, some doubted, but he stopped not his mandate for mankind.

Have you ever heard of a Son such as this, a man of this kind?

Have you seen one so pure and true? One who is impartial and kind.

A lover of all; rich, poor, the Jew and gentile?

He finished his work when he died and ascended to his throne. Now seated, the King makes intercession for co-heirs now and those to come. 

Are you on a risky tightrope between heaven and hell with your gaze set on that place where sorrow untold with everlasting chains awaits? 

Or are you ready for the Bridegroom when he comes? 

As a bright lamp full of oil, keep your soul ready and ablaze. There is still time to prepare for the King, so live not in uncertainty or in a maze.

Poem of Hope & Restoration (storytelling series): God brings dreams to Pass

Up and down the land she walked, as a wanderer seeing naught and feeling lost, she sighed and cried “I have stalled ‘cause of the fog and drought”.
Even within, she felt barren and dry wanting to pray but too weak to try. Then came a light so bright before her face, but looking around she saw no one in that place. Within her heart, she heard a voice say loud & clear

“I am the Light of the World who loves you, my dear”. Then he placed a fountain in her heart and said “Out of you shall flow rivers of living water to quench your thirst, so you shall never falter”.

Then suddenly her heart became a well watered verdant land, from her mouth was a melodious waterfall, and her eyes were awash with God’s salve to never falter or fall.

 The bright ray of the morning sun hit her face so hard she covered her eyes and exclaimed “my, what a dream so real!”

The dream spoke of God’s Light, His love and the River of Life, a picture of what is to come, a revelation of God’s delivering might and abundant promises day and night. 

Now strengthened, newly enlightened, no more doubtful, newly hopeful, she knew that she could cope with every trial whatever the scope, for her heart was now full of hope, because of Him who said

“I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.(1)”

(Scriptural references:John 8:12, 7:38-39, Biblical quote Isaiah 46:11 KJV)
