Warm regard in the name of JESUS CHRIST,
I am a God’s people who repented from my past life which was far from GOD. Through many problems, GOD invited me back, made me humble like what He has done to Israel which is written in the Bible; Deuteronomy 8:15,16; Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint; Who fed thee in the wilderness with man’-na wich thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end; (2 Corinthians 7:10, Hebrew 12:6)
He made me submitted unto Him.
September 9, 2006, GOD released me from two murder attempts, then I realized that before 9 September, I saved by GOD for another three times attempts with His strecthed out arm! Previously I didn’t realized that I’m in a huge danger. GOD was with me, whispered and guided me step by step, so calmly. He made the time longer and shorter as He needed for saving me. He supplied me with a short prayers because I didn’t know what I’m facing. (Isaiah 45:5, Psalm 37:32,33, Romans 8:26-28)
September 11, 2006, GOD guided me and my daughter leaving our hometown which oftentimes shaken by bomb threats, left our house, school and jobs. We went to Makassar because it was the only flight available at that time. At the Airport, GOD showed me the people who watched us and would followed us if we leave the city. In the waiting room with one way, we and one of my friend make sure that someone unknown were “accompanied” us till we got on the plane. Hand in hand my daughter and I walked to the plane. I almost canceled our departure but then I reminded to the pale faces who watched us at the airport so I thought better to be with one stranger than face many unknown people and I didn’t know how many of them were there. I felt peace in my heart when I decided to leave the city and I knew that GOD’s leading my way. Inside the plane, I was curious about GOD’s way to release us from the man who was sitting several rows from us. I wanted to cooperate with GOD. My curiosity didn’t get an answer immediately, made me nervous. Then came to my mind that GOD helped me already with the perfect composure when I didn’t realized that I was in danger. This thought made me feel peace (Psalm 37:5; Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and shall bring it to pass). Finally I took a deep breath, enjoyed every peaceful minutes God gave me, ignoring what would happen and let GOD work.
In Hasanuddin airport, I reported our situation to the airport security and surprisingly they believed me. After gaining information about the characteristic of the suspected guy, the security pulled my hand and I pulled my daughter’s hand, he wanted to bring us out through the different exit door that usually used by other passengers, but when reaching the exit door that was shown by the airport security, I didn’t want to walk out. It was really GOD’s angel that blocked my step to get out from the airport. Outside of the plan I searched for domestic flight to any destinations to continue my trip but all flights were fully booked. My daughter who is afraid of height, begged to not continue the trip that night. The security officers then let us to took a rest in one of ground handling room. Until early in the morning, several times they informed us the situation outside of the airport. The man that we’ve mentioned the characteristic before was still around the airport. And from their observation, besides followed by one man since our departure, we also had been waited by at least 5 men. The officers described about how they were looking for us among the passengers like they were searching a needle in the straws. And because they did not see us get out through the exit doors, they did not move and still guarding around the airport. I kept trying to calm my daughter that kept asking when all this things will be end. I reminded her and myself that God saved us before, even when we did not know that we were in danger and He will be always protect us. He would never leave anyone in the middle of the way. He never work halfway because He is not a human, GOD is GOD and He is faithful. All we need is just be patience and let GOD work with His own way. Every second in the ground handling room was a valuable education from GOD for us. HE taught us about what “Trust” and “surrender with all of our hearts” are really means. In the morning when my daughter, accompanied by the security officer walking to the money machine, she saw the guy who followed us in the plane. He was standing at the exit door, but that man did not see her. The angel of GOD has covered us. Finally, at 9 o’clock in the morning we got news that there are two available seats to Manado . I believe that the ground handling staffs who were so kind to us since last night was came from God. They accompanied us till at the stairs of the aircraft. We were touched because we’ve been through the strained situation together and it bound us into a love. Love that exist in every heart of people that grows by JESUS CHRIST. We arrived in Manado September 12, 2006 in the daytime. (Psalm 64:6-11)
At my friend’s house that is so peaceful and quiet in Airmadidi, I sent a gratitude and yielding prayer to GOD, and when I was praying, I heard God spoke into my head, interrupted my prayer: “This is My matter not yours”. I was surprised, amazed and touched. How could it be? Isn’t it my own problem, because of my foolish life which far from HIM? I shared this to the people around me to be a strengthen testimony how God involves in every problem of human as long as they are asking for HIS help with trust. (Psalm 33:13,14,18,19 ; The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men. From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth. Behold the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine)
On September 2006, in my uncle’s house in Winangun, Manado, I found two sent messages dated of August 25, 2006 at 15.03 and 15.13 in my cellphone. It was for a friend who wanted to kill me. Those two messages contains of God words! Something I never did to him because our faith is different. I remembered that I sent those messages when he asked me through sms what am I doing. For that time I was reading GOD’s words, so I quoted and sent them as a reply of his question. First message was GOD’s words in Proverbs 6:16-19; These six things doth the LORD hate; yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tounge, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren. The next message, sent 10 minutes later, was from Isaiah 40:25-29, 41:10, 45:22 ; To whom then will ye liken me, or shall be equal? Saith the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth. Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel , My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from my God? Hast thou not known? Hast thou not heard? The Creator of the ends of the earth fainteth not, neither is weary? These is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. (!!!)
I was really surprised, amazed and touched. GOD is so awesome and kind! He was not just released me from the people who wanted to kill me but He also pleaded from the beginning before I know the danger. Above all, GOD already declared Himself to me as real as the messages that saved in my cellphone to comforted me, for GOD of knowledge knew that I would need a strength that only HE can give. God is so wonderful. I shared this love of GOD to the parish of Winangun (Isaiah 43:10-13 ; You are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have choosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour. I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God. Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it? ). By the will of
GOD, through my brother, me and my daughter flew to Balikpapan on October 2nd 2006 and on October 4 2006 I testified in Martadinata Church.
In my brother’s house, in the morning, Dec 21 2006 at 8.00 am, I read The Bible in the bedroom. As usual after praying I opened and read the Bible randomly. That morning I read Deuteronomy chapter 4 with. I was happy when started to read the verses which contains of GOD’s commands that spoken by Moses for Israel. God made me weak without Him. He made me regret about my past which was far from Him. The earnestly repentance made me want to know more about what GOD wants His people to do. Psalm 119:18-20; Open thou mine eyes, that I maybe hold wondrous things out of thy law. I am a stranger in the earth: hide not thy commandments from me. My soul breaketh for the longing that it hath unto thy judgments at all times. Psalm 25:4,5,7 ; Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day. Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness’ sake, O LORD. (Proverbs 28:13,14; Psalm 119:33,34) And Deuteronomy 4 was just like exactly what I needed. My soul, which thirsty for GOD’s words was freshen. And the empty place in the bottom of my heart was filled by something that every soul needed the most. Suddenly, I stopped when I read verse 15 and 16 and ; “Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that the LORD spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire: Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female, “ There was something in those verses that drawed my attention but I did not know what it is. I read those verses again, slower and more carefuly. But right after reading verse 16, without my control, my hand opened the other page with one move and then my eyes directed to John 14: 6; Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh to the Father, but by me. And then verse 7; “If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.” I was surprised and happy because I’ve been looking for these Words. I desired to know more about Jesus and his Godhead more clearly. Suddenly after reading verse 7, beyond my will, my hand moved backward once, opened Deuteronomy chapter 4 and again my eyes directed to verse 15 and 16 ; “Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that the LORD spake unto you in Ho’-reb out of the midst of the fire; Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female.” This time while reading, I felt like a waves of startle entering my heart, along with a brand new comprehension. I troubled and began to sob by fearness that I can’t explain in words when I started to realized that GOD was trying to tell me, open my heart and mind with a light of truth which is really new and never been thought about before. My eyes were open wide but at the same time my heart was shriveled up, I was afraid that perhaps, the truth which GOD thrusting toward me to comprehend is unbearable for me. The truth was just like stripped me, made me astonished, mused and embarrassed. How do we, people of GOD, thinking all this time? How could we missed this truth? (Dan. 12:9 ; And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Gal. 3:22 ; But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. 2 Cor. 4:7; But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the exellency of the power may be of God and not of us)
My brothers and sisters beloved of JESUS CHRIST, The truth is : STATUES OR IMAGES OR ANYTHING WHICH IS INTENDED TO COMPARE THE APPEARANCE OF JESUS IS AN IDOL!
Rom. 1:22,23 ; Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beast, and creeping things.
2 Cor. 5:16; Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. 2 Cor. 5:7 ; -- For we walk by faith, not by sight— Rom. 8:24,25 ; For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for what we see not, then de we with patience wait for it. (1 John 3:2,3) Heb. 11:1 ; Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
I Peter I : 8,9; Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
JESUS IS SUBLIME AND WORTHY, AS WORTHY AS THE FATHER BECAUSE JESUS IS THE REFLECTION OF HIM ! AND JESUS’S GLORY, EVEN AS THE FATHER’S, MAY NOT BE COMPARED WITH ANYTHING! (Isaiah 46:5; To whom will ye liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like? John 5:23 ; That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.)
Don’t know how it begins, but that image has become a kind of identity of Christian people. It is seen in almost every Christian’s house, even becomes a decor in some of particular churches. Imagining one huge responsibility, made me afraid. But I can’t avoid it. GOD had spoken, answered my every prayer, that GOD may pour out of HIS Spirit of truth upon me, which shall leads me and my beloved ones to be worthy to enter in the kingdom of GOD. (Psa. 118:19, Rom. 8:28). I also already have a commitment, after what GOD has done for me, with HIS help, I will obey anything that HE want me to do for HIS glory (Amos 3:3 ; Can two walk together, except they be agreed?) So, no matter how afraid I was of the truth that suddenly thrusted toward me to comprehend, my gratitude was greater to HIM who revealed the truth to me very clearly. Can I reject GOD? (Amos 3 : 8; The lion hath roared, who will not fear? The Lord GOD hath spoken, who can but prophesy?)
The more I thought about this, the more amazed I was, to feel HIS majesty. The more I pondered, the more I wondered.
Rom. 10:4; For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. (Matt. 5:17)
Heb. 9:15; And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. Heb. 9:26; For then must he often have suffered since the fondation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. (1 John 3:5) John 7:38,39 ; He that believeth on me, sd the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified. (John 14:7-14, 1 John 5:20) Rom. 3:26 ; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
In the afternoon, on the same day, Dec 21, 2006 between 3.00-4.00pm, when I was driving, don’t know how, suddenly came into my mind that I’am already free and I said it straightaway: “Means, that I already free.” Then I my self wondered why did I said so? What does that mean? I kept meditate in this sentence astonishingly as when GOD showed me the light of truth through Deu. 4:15,16 and John 14:6,7. I couldn’t keep these things for my self, so I told my parents and my daughter as well. I had not know that “the truth” and my words “Means, that I already free” has a correlation one to another. And I didn’t realized it rightaway. (John 8:31,32, Rom. 6:17,18, 8:2)
On Dec 24, 2006, when the evening came on, the air was chilly and clear because the rain was just stopped. Me, my daughter, my sister-in-law, niece and a woman who also a member of Martadinata church was passing by the Fantasy Mall, going to the down town. While I was driving, I looked up the sky and amazed. In the sky, spread out before us, a rare scenery with a beauty that I’ve never seen before. A clump of white clouds was shining by the sun’s rays which was hiding behind it, and there was a pretty little rainbow, as wide as the clump of clouds rounded about the golden clouds. The sky around it was colored bluish green, sparkling with colors, like a pearl or soap bubble hitted by a light. On the right side below the shining glump, there was another glump of clouds like an arch-shaped gates with it’s path, and the sun sun’s golden rays sprayed out from the path. I’ve never seen such a beautiful view like that before. We pulled over to enjoyed it. (Rev. 4:2,3 ; And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.) Psalm 118:20, John 10:9,10, Hos. 6:11, 7:1, Rev 10:1.
By the earnest and continous surrender, in prayers and tears, gradually but sure, GOD strengthened me of the calling to share this good news, Words of the salvation, to HIS people everywhere. GOD spoke and strengthened me with HIS commands and promises through Bible verses; Isaiah 30:18-26, 41:9-16,21-24, 42:6-9,14-17, 44:18-22, 46:3-13, 49:6, 51:6-8, 52:6,7, Ezekiel 3:4-21, Matthew 28:20.
Isaiah 45 : 19; ”I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the LORD speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.”
Praise The LORD, on Jan 19, 20 and 21 2007, GOD spoke in my mind. He gave me a comprehension quickly and clear about what was happening. HE told me that the murder attempts was related to the truth which HE was revealing. That was not just about human madness but satan was behind all that, he didn’t want his deception mask to be uncovered. Satan didn’t want GOD’s plan to be carried out. This fact shook my soul, made me sobbed. So this is truly HIS matter. GOD gave me fully comprehension about a very important command for HIS chosen people that I try to pour out in this following sentences:
SATAN IS DECEIVING HUMAN THROUGH THE PICTURE OF “JESUS” (IT IS NOT JESUS) AND JESUS CHRIST WHO IS TRUE AND ALIVE IS TRYING SO HARD TO WIN HIS PEOPLE WHO ARE REALLY LONGING AFTER HIM, BY REMINDS THEM ABOUT OBEDIENCE TO THE SECOND COMMANDMENT (Exo. 20:4,5; 2 Cor. 11:14; 2 Thess. 2:10,11; Jeremiah 2:11-13; Jeremiah 8:5-11; Rev 14:9-10; Rom 3:31, 7:12 )
SATAN IS EXEEDINGLY HATES CHRIST. AND THE HEART OF MAN WHO REALLY LONGS AFTER CHRIST IS A MARK FOR SATAN’S DECEPTION THAT HE USE TO PROVOKING CHRIST TO ANGER (Luke 21:8, Matt. 24:24)
THE COMPROMISE OF CHRISTIAN PEOPLE TO THIS PICTURE GIVING AN OPPORTUNITY TO SATAN’S CRAFTY DECEPTION THAT MAY NOT BE DISPAREGED, FOR IT IS LEAD US INTO TRANSGRESSION OF THE LAW AND DEATH. THAT IS WHAT SATAN WANTS BUT THAT IS NOT WHAT CHRIST WANTS. HE WANTS ALL HIS PEOPLE WHO ARE REALLY DESIRES AND WAITS FOR HIS COMING COULD BE SAVED IN THE PEACEFUL ETERNAL KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. (John 8:44, Rom. 7:11, Isa. 24:5)
SATAN WITH HIS POWER AND CUNNING, TRYING VERY HARD TO DECEIVE HUMAN TO BLASPHEME THE LORD AND THEN DERIDE HIM BY MAKING DECEITS FAKE OBEDIENCE. HIS EFORTS TO BRING HUMAN DOWN INTO SIN IS DONE IN LAYERS, SLIPPED OUT OF ONE SIN, COME ANOTHER SINS TO INTERCEPT. THE CHURCHES EVEN CHEATED. (2 Thess. 2:3,4, Dan. 8:12)
TO BE AVOIDED FROM ALL KIND OF SATAN’S CRAFTY DISGUSTING DECEPTIONS IN THESE LAST DAYS, JESUS ASKS US TO REMEMBER AGAIN THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, SEE ONE BY ONE, SOLEMNLY AND HUMBLY, WITH FEAR AND LOVE, HAVE WE OBEY THE COMMANDMENTS FAITHFULLY AND RIGHTFULLY? FOR IN ALL GOD’S LAWS AND STATUTES THERE IS A PROTECTION FOR HIS BELOVED CHILDREN. (Matt. 19:17, Gal. 4:5, Lam. 3:40, Mal. 4:4, James 1:25, Ecc. 8:5)
NOW, THE EXCELLENT GLORY AND THE ALMIGHTY, LORD OF HOSTS IS GATHERING HIS PEOPLE THAT ARE SCATTERED BY THE STRENGTH OF SIN, RESPONDING HUMAN’S DESIRE, WASHING, PURIFYING AND RELIEVING US FROM THE STRENGTH OF SIN TO MAKE US WORTHY TO ENTER IN THE PEACEFUL AND ETERNAL KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. (Dan. 12:10, Eze. 34:16, 36:24-28, Zach. 8:7,8, Jer. 29:11-14, Deu. 30:3,4,6, Mal. 3:3, Hos. 14:5-9, John 10:11, 14:1-3, Heb. 9:14,15, 1 Thess. 5:9, John 11:51,52, Mic. 2:12,13, Amos 9:11-15, Zep. 3:20, Zach 13:9)
My brothers and sisters, the light of in Deu. 4:15,16 and John 14:6,7 (-11) was worried me. Slowly but sure, more I felt the importance to share this to GOD’s people. By HIS guidance I shared this testimony in a writing (Isa. 30:8-11, Hab. 2:1-4). Up to now, I’ve rewrote/re-edited this testimony for eighteen times according to what GOD give from time to time, through endorsing verses and deeper comprehension. Everytime I finished writing, I felt a strong urge to soon share it, without waiting for the writing to be perfect. (I Cor. 2 : 1-5) How small-minded I’am if I’m thinking that GOD’s help, command and testimony that HE gave was intended to me only. The wise that given by GOD said that every work HE has revealed unto someone have to be shared to others, for GOD intends to make us HIS witnesses to all the world, that GOD is exist, HE is the King, HE is true and there is no god besides HIM. (I Peter 2:9 ; But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light; Isa. 43:10, Deu. 4:35)
Matthew 10:26-33; “Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be reaveled; and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroyed both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? And one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows. Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before man, him will also deny before my Father which is in heaven.”
In the evening, February 23, 2007, on the way to church, GOD spoke trough my mind; “Salvation is a grace, not by works” (Exo. 33:18-20, Rom. 11:2-7, 1 Pet. 1:10,11, John 1:17, Eph. 2:4,5, Rom. 11:32-36 ; For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all. On the depth of riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! For who hath known the mind of the lord? or who hath been his counsellor? Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen. Isa. 40:13,14). I told my daughter about this thing, but then decided to not write it and also not to write about the beautiful view in the sky on Dec 24 2006, with consideration that perhaps it is not something important for many people, perhaps GOD just wanted to give me a personal warning. But then I think that I’ve made a mistake. I have to share all that GOD had told and showed to me, I may not sort them according to my own thought. GOD crtainly has a special purpose with HIS words and all that HE had showen (Isa. 55:8,9, Rom. 3:24).
Now I’am glad, I have shared it to you, brothers and sisters. JESUS CHRIST has allowed a special things to happened to me, so they would be understandable when they are shared to brothers and sisters the beloved of the LORD. A testimony that will endify our spirituality to do the service which acceptable unto HIM, that is with reverence and godly fear (Heb. 12:28,29), so that we can recognize the plan of salvation that HE had set for men, also HIS truth, HIS faitfulness, HIS righteousness, HIS love, and HIS coming which getting closer (Ecc. 3:11, Psalm 105:8-11, 1 Thess. 5:4,5) and also giving us a strength to prepare to receive HIS coming (Isa. 40:30,31 ; Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young man shall utterly fall: but they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.)
God is still patiently leading me to the deeper and more clear comprehensions from day to day as HE will, through word by word, sentence by sentence in the Holy Bible. On March 5 2007, through Eze. 8:9,10 GOD was succeed in making me understand that we hurt HIM and provoke HIM to jealousy by putting that image in HIS church. Church is the house of the LORD, which is called by HIS name! Eze. 8:5 ; Then said he unto me, Son of man, lift up thine eyes now the way toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry. (Isa. 40:18 ; To whom then will ye liken God? Or what likeness will ye compare unto him?)
All praises and honour to YHVH, to the LORD of hosts and JESUS CHRIST who is the only way of truth and life. March 23 2007, GOD more confirmed me through HIS word in 2 Cor. 3:14-17 ; But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ. But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart. Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away. Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. Really, the wondrous GOD has all the answer (2 Cor. 4:3,4 ; But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.) What happened to me on dec 21 2006, explained perfectly by the Bible is self. My tears streamed down, the conscience that accusing oftentimes was already answered (Isa. 45:3-8, 8:20, 2 Pet. 1:20,21, Heb. 2:4)
For the LORD is that Spirit, living GOD. Worship HIM in spirit and in truth. John 4:23,24 ; “But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” 2 Cor. 3:18 ; ”But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even by the Spirit of the Lord.” Matt. 16:16-19, Isa. 51:16, 1 Cor. 3:11
My brothers and sisters, Actually this is JESUS CHRIST’s invitation to repent and to come unto HIM : “ I’am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (Act 26:18, Luke 5:32, Matt. 9:13, Isa. 58:7-14, Heb. 4:3-11).
This is the time when the FATHER with HIS mercy through JESUS CHRIST showing the way to heaven to the people, with no exception, not limited by denomination or anything. All people are same before the LORD. There is no other way but through faith in JESUS CHRIST as the LORD, Son of GOD, comes from heaven, died by the crucifixion and raised, alive, to redeemed all flesh and now worship HIM as the LORD. (Rev. 14:12, John 14:7-11, Luke 1:32,35, John 20:31, Rom. 1:4, John 5:36, 8:23, 1 John 4:2, Matt. 28:6, John 20:25-29, 11:25, Heb. 9:15, John 7:38,39, Act 4:12.) 1 John 2:2 ; And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
John 3:16 ; For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Matthew 28:18-20; And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go
ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commended you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. A-men.
Isaiah 45:23,24; I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, that unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. Surely, shall one say, in the LORD have I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed.
1 John 5:9,12 ; If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son. He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
1 John 5:7 ; For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

Rom. 2:1-3 ; Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things. But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth againts them which commit such things. And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?
Matthew 7:21-23; Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Repent and sin no more! And be reconciled to the father! (Isa. 1:10-20, Rom. 10:1-3, Eze. 18:30-32, 33:11, Hos. 14:2-4, Yoel 2:12-17, Zef. 2:1-3, Zach. 1:1-6, John 8:24, 2 Cor. 5:19-21, Rom. 4:3-25, Heb. 11:6, Mark 11:25,26, Act 2:37,38). The door of grace and the gate of gift are open wide for whoever believes, inviting us to enter into it to get an everlasting joy!
Rom. 2:4,5 ; Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance? But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God. (Heb. 10:26, 2 Cor. 5:17, 2 Tim. 2:19, 1 John 3:6, Rom. 6:14, Is. 60:21,22, Rev. 14:13)
Prov. 28:13,14 ; He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy. Happy is the man that feareth alway: but he that hardeneth his heart shall fall into mischief. (Amos 9:10, Jer 30:23,24, Joel 2:32, Act 2:21-24, Rom. 10:13,14, Zep. 3:12,13)
My brothers and sisters, the door of grace is not always open, when this mercy shall end? Only GOD knows. (Rev. 22:11). The great and dreadful day of the LORD is coming soon. (Zep. 1:14-18, Eze. 38:1-23, 39:1-8). CHRIST shall come at the time appointed by the FATHER, whether we’re ready or not. (1 Thess. 5:1-11).
2 Cor. 6:1,2 ; We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have i succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.) (Deu. 4:27-29, Psalm 89:31-38, 103:9-14, 23:1-6, Micah7:18-20, Heb. 9:26, Col. 1:13,14, John 17:20-26, Is. 43:1-7, 44:3-5, 54:10).

How GOD desires to make us free from the strength of sin (Heb. 8:6-13, 9:12,15,25-28, 10:14, 11:6, Jer. 31:1-40, 2 Cor. 5:19, Jer. 4:1,2, Rom. 3:2.). For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God and for CHRIST is all and in all (Rom. 3:9-31, Rom. 1:23, Gal. 3:1-14, Col. 3:11).
Romans 16:25-27; Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith: To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. A-men.
February 24 2009, I was pondering about the chronology of what happened on Dec 21 2006 and how amazed I was when my eyes of understanding being enlightened about the truth. Suddenly my mind was opened by the LORD with an astonishing sentence : “That day, The Holy Ghost testified that JESUS is the LORD” (John 15:26, 16:14,15)
Malachi 4:1-6; For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts. Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Ho’-reb for all Israel , with the statutes and judgments. Behold, I will send you E-li’-jah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
Hosea 14:9; Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? Prudent, and he shall known them? For the ways of the LORD are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.
I believe this light of truth will spout and spread, reaching all GOD’s people. GOD him self performs HIS work, blessed be HIS name fo ever and ever. HE is True, Righteous and Faithful, The Creator of heaven and earth, is there anything impossible for HIM? (Jer. 32:27).
Psalm 9:16 The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.
Isaiah 42:8 42:8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
Psalm 119:126 It is time for thee, LORD, to work: for they have made void thy law.
Psalm 33:3,4; Sing unto him a new song; play skillfully with a loud noise. For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.
Psalm 118:29 ; O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
This testimony is truely and sincerely made (name is not included because the important thing is our knowledge of JESUS CHRIST that is the LORD. (2 Cor. 4:5, Hosea 6:3,6, 2 Tim. 2:7). Share this word of salvation to brothers and sisters beloved of GOD. GOD bless. I bring in the name of the LORD JESUS.
O COME YE JESUS CHRIST! (Heb. 10:37)
