Matthew 27:50-53
And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split. The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus’ resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people.

Matthew 3: 2 “Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!”    (From The Smith Wigglesworth Devotional

I do not have permission to copy this, but I encourage yopu to purchase this book.  Today’s message challenges us to focus not so much on love, love, love; but on repent, repent, repent.

You see Jesus came to end your suffering, but first you must repent or confess   to him (between you and him) your sins and that you are sorry, ask for forgiveness and ask for help and peace.

Then you must accept him as your LOrd and Savior and the master of your life.  Then you can be sure of the plan of God for your life and for change faster than you can imagine.

Find yourself a good church home where they teach the Word of God so that you can continue to thrive and move forward.

A Final Thought (from the book)    (I love this quote)  ”  Weeping is not repentance, sorrow is not repentance.  Repentance is turning away from sin and doing the work of righteousness and holiness.”  (Page 454)

“Call to me and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” (Jeremiah 33:3)
COMMENT: “computers for Dummies” is one of a host of books written in simple terms for people who are “technologically challenged”. Well, I fall into that category, but I prefer the term “novice”. One of the problems I have is sending an e-mail to someone who is not in my address book. I have to make sure that every single character in the address is correct; otherwise it will not be delivered. If I make the slightest mistake in searching for a Web Site, I am rebuked. In cyberspace, one has to be perfect in order to communicate. I thank God that He is not that way! We don’t have to go through any particular ritual to get the Father’s ear. It is not necessary to bow our heads, close our eyes, bend our knees, or lay prostrate. Of course, if you feel prompted to practice any of these gestures you can, but they are not prerequisites. When Peter began to sink in his attempt to walk on water, he didn’t have time for any rigmarole. He cried out to Jesus and the response was immediate. (Matthew 14:30,31) However, we are given some instruction regarding prayer and it’s in John 14:13,14. . . .”And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.”
