Consider this fair warning in advance…I feel this compelling need to share what has transpired in my life…especially the last few years. If what I have to say bothers you…just ignore my Monday night posts in the upcoming weeks. And if you need to unfriend me as a result that’s cool too. But I’d ask you to tune in for a few…you see if bits of my story can help just one person I will have served my purpose here.

The last few years have been full of what I now call many, small under-rated miracles. Definition of miracle: an unusual or wonderful event that is believed to be caused by the power of God. Things have happened in my life that I can call by no other name and that have literally transformed how I view the world. You see I read the Bible for the first time two years ago and began going to church for the first time just over a year ago. I’ve had an unyielding belief in God all my life but thought the Bible was just an old book that was way too long to want to take the time to read, I didn’t see a need to go to church where I thought all the judgmental people hung out and I scoffed at the door-to-door “born again” Christian salespeople trying to push their religion on me. But God found “miraculous” ways to get to me and to bring me home to him and to show me all the pieces I had been missing. If he can do that for me…with my history and my issues…which have kept me in constant fight or fright mode…then he can do that for anyone…and he can and he will if one can let down the walls for just a moment and take that first small step. I now have a conviction or an obsession, if you will, that runs so very deep. And it truly is a Good News story. One that everyone needs to hear. You will be amazed… I’ll tell you more next Monday…

On a slightly humorous note…do you think in heaven we’ll be able to go to sleep to the sound of rain falling on a tin roof?

WHY WAS JESUS CRUCIFIED?

All messages from Brother Cliff can be found in his book titled

SEVEN FUNDAMENTALS OF THE CROSS

ONE: THE NECESSITY OF THE CROSS

I: WHY WAS JESUS CRUCIFIED?

Consider first the Divine nature and character of God: the beauty and majesty of Holy Love. God is Holy Love. He is wholly Holy and He is wholly Love. God; Who is Holy, is inseparable from the God Who is Love. The great “I AM” is ever and always all that He is at all times. God does not, indeed cannot, lay aside one aspect of His nature in order to manifest another. His Divine nature and various attributes are always in absolute harmony at all times.

Just as the Persons of the Trinity within the God-head are each identifiable and yet, inseparable; even so is the fundamental duality of the Divine nature of God. When someone attempts to separate the holiness of God from the love of God; emphasizing one while neglecting the other, they are in danger of misrepresenting the nature and character of God. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit are wholly, Holy Love!

Psa 99:5 Exalt ye the LORD our God, and worship at his footstool; for he is holy.

1Jn 4:16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

Starting Again

About a year ago I tried starting a new feature on Tuesdays Torch to include posts from our friends. This is Friends On Fire for the Lord who have a heart to share their stories and how their lives have been affected by the message of the gospel. Two of these friends of ours have written some messages and have agreed to share them here with us. It is our belief that sharing the perspective of other believers will have an impact on building unity throughout readers of this blog. Hope these posts from our friends will be a blessing to readers and that it will help grow their faith.
