Oh worship the Lord in the beauty of His holiness!
Pondering these things in my heart ...

In the wake of the martyrdom of Christians worldwide ... so many killed while gathering for worship and prayer:
In all seasons of life, always remember that no one, no circumstance, no government, no hateful, demonized terrorist/terrorists (at home or abroad), can take away our freedom to pray, and to believe that Jesus Christ is God who has come in the flesh. He gave up His own life to grant us mercy, freedom, liberty and the grace to overcome any sin, weakness or difficulty! He gives us grace upon grace to forgive those who persecute us, even in the face of martyrdom!
I call this “dying” grace! Jesus set the example for us all when He died for our sins on the cross, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do!” As St. Stephen was being stoned to death, he was in prayer for those who were killing him!
Acts 7:59-60 “As they stoned him, Stephen prayed, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” He fell to his knees, shouting, 'Lord, don’t charge them with this sin!' And with that, he died.”
24/7/365 >>> Jesus Christ is Emmanuel, God with us! May God bless our nations with a baptism of repentance, beginning with those who are called by His name. I pray that waves of holiness and the fear of the Lord will roll across the earth, bringing in wave after wave of prodigal sons and daughters, husbands and wives, priests and prophets. In Jesus name, amen and amen. So be it Lord.
John 15:11-15..."I have told you these things so that you will be filled with My joy. Yes, your joy will overflow! This is My commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you. There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are My friends if you do what I command.....Now you are My friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me."
Shoulder to shoulder, and grace upon grace, Betty Jordan
