Heaven and Earth

Jesus Is The Savior of The World

16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. 19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. 21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.”John 3:16-21 NIV

To The Nations (Lent) Repent From Sins To A Holy God

Blow the trumpet in Zion;  sound the alarm on my holy mountain!  Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of the Lord is coming, it is near, a day of darkness and gloom,
a day of clouds and thick darkness!  Like blackness there is spread upon the mountains
a great and powerful people;  their like has never been from of old, nor will be again after them
through the years of all generations.

Fire devours before them,  and behind them a flame burns.  The land is like the garden of Eden before them, but after them a desolate wilderness,  and nothing escapes them.

Their appearance is like the appearance of horses,  and like war horses they run.  As with the rumbling of chariots,  they leap on the tops of the mountains,  like the crackling of a flame of fire
devouring the stubble,  like a powerful army  drawn up for battle.

Before them peoples are in anguish,  all faces grow pale.  Like warriors they charge,  like soldiers they scale the wall.  They march each on his way,  they do not swerve from their paths.  They do not jostle one another,  each marches in his path; they burst through the weapons  and are not halted.

They leap upon the city,  they run upon the walls;  they climb up into the houses, they enter through the windows like a thief.

The earth quakes before them,   the heavens tremble.  The sun and the moon are darkened,
and the stars withdraw their shining.  The Lord utters his voice before his army, for his host is exceedingly great; he that executes his word is powerful.  For the day of the Lord is great and very terrible; who can endure it?

“Yet even now,” says the Lord “return to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning; and rend your hearts and not your garments.” Return to the Lord, your God, for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love, and repents of evil.  Who knows whether he will not turn and repent, and leave a blessing behind him,  a cereal offering and a drink offering for the Lord, your God?

Blow the trumpet in Zion; sanctify a fast; call a solemn assembly; gather the people.  Sanctify the congregation; assemble the elders; gather the children,  even nursing infants.  Let the bridegroom leave his room, and the bride her chamber.

Between the vestibule and the altar  let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep and say, “Spare thy people, O Lordand make not thy heritage a reproach, a byword among the nations. Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their God? Joel 2:1-17 RSV

Lent: Time To Pray & Fast

Have mercy on me, O God,   according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion
blot out my transgressions.   Wash away all my iniquity  and cleanse me from my sin. For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me.  Against you, you only, have I sinned  and done what is evil in your sight;  so you are right in your verdict  and justified when you judge.  Surely I was sinful at birth,  sinful from the time my mother conceived me.   Yet you desired faithfulness even in the womb;  you taught me wisdom in that secret place.

Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean;  wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.   Let me hear joy and gladness;  let the bones you have crushed rejoice.  Hide your face from my sins  and blot out all my iniquity.   
Create in me a pure heart, O God,  and renew a steadfast spirit within me.   Do not cast me from your presence  or take your Holy Spirit from me.  Restore to me the joy of your salvation  and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
 
Then I will teach transgressors your ways, so that sinners will turn back to you.  Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God, you who are God my Savior, and my tongue will sing of your righteousness.  Open my lips, Lord,  and my mouth will declare your praise.  You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it;  you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings.  My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit;  a broken and contrite heart  you, God, will not despise.
May it please you to prosper Zion,  to build up the walls of Jerusalem.  Then you will delight in the sacrifices of the righteous, in burnt offerings offered whole;  then bulls will be offered on your altar. Psalms 51 NIV
