Today’s Tweets

Who calls the tune? Who calls the shots? At whose command do you jump?

Or do you think you’re free?

“He who the Son sets free is free indeed.”

………

Dear soul, can you imagine what it means and how significant it would be for you to come out from under the wrath of God, which you’re presently under, and to come into Christ and under His grace?

……..

God hears and answers millions of prayers every day.

He can handle it.

……..

Do you believe this?

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life”

(John 6:47)

– Oh yes, I believe this!

Then do you have everlasting life?

– Oh, no. How can anyone know that?

But you just said that you believe that whoever believes in Jesus has everlasting life?

………

“One of the great uses of Twitter and Facebook will be to prove at the Last Day that prayerlessness was not from lack of time.”

~ John Piper

………

Its okay to feel small when you behold the glory and power of God. We are small, but we’re loved by God.

“What is man that you are mindful of him?”

……..

Jesus only deals in reality.

And He destroys illusions.

………

“Liberal Christian” and “Fake Christian” are synonyms.

Someone writes:

“No, Jesus was not separated from the Father on the cross”

My reply:

“For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” 2 Corinthians 5:21

The article is built around the thesis of whether the Father took His eyes off Jesus during His suffering.

This distracts from the real point, of whether the perfect communion Jesus had eternally with His Father was temporarily broken when the Father substitutionally made Him “to be sin”?

We would be right to assume that Jesus was right when He cried out that the Father had forsaken Him, because this is indeed what Jesus experienced as the Father made Him to be sin: that is, imputing the sin of the world onto His Son.

It would be a serious charge to accuse Jesus of being wrong or mistaken when He cried, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”.

It was a temporary abandonment, but it was a great suffering for Jesus to be cast into darkness and not have that communion He always lived by.

Jesus did not suffer in Hell beneath, but He went through Hell as He experienced abandonment. All the light had gone, but He still trusted, because in all that darkness as He was made to be sin He did not sin. He still believed regardless of His horrendous experience.

Then when Jesus said, It is finished, then, truly, that awful abandonment or dereliction was finished, and He committed His soul into His Father’s hands.

And because Jesus experienced separation from His Father, we never have to.

Unless we choose that route.
