Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost. (source)
And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there. (source)
Heavenward and unfaltering gaze
Of optimism and unceasing praise
Persevering in God’s work of love
Empowered by His Spirit which has descended like a dove
Filled with gladness all the day long
Uttering thankfulness in word and song
Listening to the Lord with open mind and heart
Never forgetting his word; not letting his wisdom depart
Ever mindful of Jesus’ death and resurrection and our eternal future
Saved forever from our humanly faulty and sinful nature
Savior Jesus will come soon and lead us to his everlasting home.
People easily find excuses not to fulfill their duties, believers easily find an excuse not to witness for Jesus and not to do what He commanded them to do but we must not allow anything from stopping us to follow Jesus Christ and from DOING what He commanded us to do. In the holiday season people are with family and then they stop following Jesus, they stop witnessing. They compromise because there are so many other things with which they occupy themselves, things that distract them.
Here where we live the national power grid is falling to pieces and we have frequent power cuts. Two days ago the Lord told me to buy a generator. This morning the power was off. You might be hearing the noise of the generator faintly in the background. If we follow Jesus He will guide us and we WILL DO what He commands us to do, we will not look for excuses but we will follow Jesus and GO where He sends us, DO what He tells us to do without excuses. Because when Jesus sends us we WILL NOT FAIL. We will DO what He tells us to do and we will accomplish that for which He sent us.
Do not look for a way out. Look to Jesus and He will ENABLE you to do that which He called you for. Stay focused on Jesus and He will guide you into fruitful service with NO EXCUSES.
May Jesus bless you.

Vers van het land, met zorg gemaakt
Personally, I’ve made a number of mistakes that I would, at first thought, go back and change if I had the opportunity to do so. I also have my fair share of those “If I knew what I know now back then…” moments.
Each of us is imperfectly perfect.
I try to remember, though, that while the past is part of who I am now, it does not define me.
May all know how much problem’s you will have, if you are on the wrong road, and the right (correct) road is miles and miles away… What I did not know, It was looking far far away, but usually it was/is nearby. I got nightmares, dreamed about a place to go, but it was so scary, monsters, snakes, fire, hell, torture, sin, etc… Then somewhere I met (again) the Lord Jesus Christ in my dreams, so real, it was as if He was standing in my room, did not say anything, just a smile, both hands reached out. If you look at the painting, to express, what can not been told, you see in-between the red figures, a small path, a man is waiting for me, can you see the beautiful mountains?
Before I came to Lord Jesus Christ, I had an nightmare, in the middle of the night I was screaming ‘Five‘, so load, that my neighbors and myself woke up. You may see, on top of ‘5’ the head of an snake. Both paintings are made with watercolor paint, from a nearby stationary: “Digo, Shanti stationary”, Kaski, Pokhara, Nepal.
‘Comoros‘ is totally off topic, found it beautiful, that’s why I shared it with you Beloved Readers
Beloved Brothers and Sisters, we know all Jesus can forgive, what about: Mark 2
4 And when they could not come near unto him for the crowd, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed on which the paralytic lay.
5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the paralytic, Son, your sins be forgiven you.
6 But there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,
7 Why does this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?
8 And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned among themselves, he said unto them, Why reason you these things in your hearts?
9 Which is it easier to say to the paralytic, Your sins be forgiven you; or to say, Arise, and take up your bed, and walk?
10 But that you may know that the Son of man has power on earth to forgive sins, (he said to the paralytic)
11 say unto you, Arise, and take up your bed, and go your way into your house.
12 And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; so that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it in this fashion.
That man in the story could not do anything at all. He could not even choice to follow Jesus Christ, after he was forgiven he could, not is written if he done it, think so. Beloved Reader, can you forgive yourself? Can you forgive others?
For me, to be real sorry, learned the lesson, don’t do the same mistake anymore, is a kind of self forgiveness. Beloved Reader, what you think about it? – please reply, thanks.
To forgive others is also something, I have forgiven others so-many times, and know, how more you forgive others how stronger you will become.
Beloved Reader, please forgive yourself first, than the other. Also be sure, with the will-power of Lord Jesus, it will be even more simple. Success.
