HRN 1 John 4.19

The Cry of the Cross

Written by: Sandy Blaser, Healing Rain to the Nations

The CROSS…a gruesome form of Roman torture and death, which stands at the very heart of Christianity. The Cross is an authentic emblem that represents Christianity.

You see, God so loved that He gave His only Son to die for you. All mankind is born with original sin, which carved an abyss between God and man and nothing but the power of the Cross could reconcile man back to God. The message of the Cross is Holy Love, God’s immeasurable pure and selfless Love for man.

On this beautiful Easter Season…take time to think upon the Cross. Look past the pain and suffering, the nails, thorns, whips, mockery and ridicule. As you’re standing at the foot of the Cross, draw closer and look deeper into heart of the Cross, to the overwhelming passion that drove Jesus Christ to Cross as our Ultimate Supreme Sacrifice.

His overwhelming Love was demonstrated there on the Cross. He released the chains of death that bound you and gave you eternal life.  He brings you out of the darkness into His marvelous light, from despair to hope, from feeling useless to a life having true meaning.  He comes into your heart with perfect love and acceptance…making you a part of His Kingdom!

God Love’s YOU…He died for YOU…He arose for YOU…He saves YOU…He gives eternal life to YOU.  There is NO greater Love!!  As we busily prepare for Easter celebration, take time to set at the foot of the cross.  Be still and listen closely and you too will hear….the cry of the Cross!  No one could ever love you like Jesus!

Facing the Storm

written by: Sandy Blaser, Healing Rain to the Nations

Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. (Psalm 139:23-24)  True faith has to be tested and refined as silver & gold…In the midst of a howling sea of sorrow, pain, loneliness & despair, powerful waves well up to overtake me! In a distance I hear a voice calling my name!

I struggle in the swift currents to take a hold of a hand reaching out for mine! As it seems I’m going under for one last time, Suddenly I feel a hand firmly grasping hold of my arm, lifting me out of the angry sea and drawing me up to new heights. With the touch of His hand my soul senses a powerful love flowing, as my feet are set on a solid rock! This magnificent love enables me to stand unwavering on a mountain of Faith!

As I stand gazing beyond my present stormy sea, my joy is restored, my strength is renewed and the determination to overcome wells up within my soul! For Christ alone is my Salvation, My Hope of Eternity!

And Once again I realize God has allowed my faith to be tested & refined! And once again I find HE is so very faithful!! All Glory to His Name!  Listen to this beautiful song…..

Stand Strong

written by: Sandy Blaser, Healing Rain to the Nations

Yes, We live in a world of turmoil, but let us remember…Our God is greater than any of the world’s problems! No matter what you see, hear or feel…”do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” (John 14:27) Keep standing strong in Faith! Talk to the Lord and strengthen you prayer life. Study the Bible, Sing and Worship the Lord from the depths of your heart! Do not neglect doing so, for Prayer and Worship are our weapons of mass destruction against the devil! “Be alert and of sober mind. For your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” (1 Peter 5:8) Therefore, I urge you to prepare yourself “Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.” (1 Corinthians 16:13) Let us “Live by faith, not by sight,” yet taking a bold and courageous stand for what is right in the eyes of the Lord (2 Corinthians 5:7) Oh that the world may know Jesus!…

As you walk faithfully before Him “may the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7)

Be Bold, Be Strong (with Lyrics)
