‘The Way of Destruction or Life?’
I started with the letter A and will go to Z focusing on a nation or island group, and what I learned in that place. If you are looking for perfection then just read the Words of Jesus in the New Testament of the Bible. I’m only a pilgrim that has and is still on a journey with Jesus. He is constantly working on me like a potter does the clay. Welcome to the potter’s house!
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new” 2 Corinthians 5:17
“No one puts a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; for the patch pulls away from the garment, and the tear is made worse.
“Nor do they put new wine into old wineskins, or else the wineskins break, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined.
“But they put new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.” Matthew 9:16-17
“For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. “But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom.” Matthew 26:28-29
“Assuredly, I say to you, I will no longer drink of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.” Mark 14:25-26
Then they were all amazed, so that they questioned among themselves, saying, “What is this? What new doctrine is this? For with authority He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey Him.” Mark 1:27
“And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;” Mark 16:17
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.” John 13:34
“He who overcomes…And I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God , the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.” Revelation 3:12
And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open its seals; for You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,” Revelation 5:9
“I heard a voice from heaven…They sang as it were a new song before the throne,” Revelation 14: 2-3
“Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea.
“Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” Revelation 21:1-2
I have lived over seventy years and carried the cross in every nation and major island group on earth. Through 53 wars, with the hungry, the sick, the dying and the suffering my eyes have seen things few have ever experienced. Yet I still dream…of that “New Earth”, everyone living in the “New Birth” in Jesus. Yes people caring, loving, peaceful and without suffering, pain, sorrow or death. I dream of that day when every promise of God is fulfilled; when all His children shall live together in the “New Jerusalem” because they have been washed in the Blood of the Lamb. All the evil I’ve seen has not quenched my faith, love or dreams. Jesus is Lord. Trust Him for 2011 and Always!
There is no need to fear, rest in the promises of Jesus!
No matter what your eyes may see. Trust in Jesus He sees the future and controls it!
Love Jesus and Share Jesus!
So go now and live in the “New” and in the Promises Of Jesus! God bless you.
Pilgrim followers of Jesus,
Arthur and Denise Blessitt,
Weeks ago I started with the letter A and will go to Z focusing on a nation or island group, and what I learned in that place. If you are looking for perfection then just read the Words of Jesus in the New Testament of the Bible. I’m only a pilgrim that has and is still on a journey with Jesus. He is constantly working on me like a potter does the clay. Welcome to the potter’s house!
