"….and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin." (1 John 1:7 )

The Bible states this powerful verse but you may be thinking how a person’s blood who died 2000 years ago could cleanse my sins? How is it possible?

Well there is a true story…. A man lived with his wife and his son in Mississippi. The man got a job lowering and raising a bridge on the Mississippi. He would lift up the bridge for the boats and lower it for the trains. Well, with his job he could not take off and get enough time to spend with his son. So he invited his son up to work with him one day when the boy was about 6 or 7, and mom packed him a lunch. The father soon found a break when he expected that there would be no need to lower the bridge for another couple of hours or so. He and his son went down the hill and ate their lunches where the boats passed by. After a while he heard a train approaching and ran up the hill screaming for his son to stay there. He quickly pushed down the handle to lower the bridge but as he did he heard a child's scream for help. It was his son. As he saw the train coming he looked down and saw that his son had followed him and gotten caught with in the gears of the bridge. He knew that if he lowered the bridge he would crush his only little boy. But if he didn't he would kill the one or two hundred people on this passenger train. As the child cried he lowered the bridge. The train overwhelmed his little boy's cries. He pounded the sides of the glass as he looked in to the windows of the train at people laughing and reading their newspapers. He screamed, "Everybody is alive and laughing because I just gave up my little boy's life for them, only my heart is broken!"

Yes, God did the same thing for us. He gave His only begotten son (Jesus)to save us as the Bible says in John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." Almighty God sent Jesus His only son into this world to shed His precious blood on the cruel cross and by doing this He lowered the bridge that connects us to God. The relationship that was broken because of our sins, the blood of Jesus repaired that bridge. He removed the deep valley between God and us and made a way for the whole mankind. Today His blood is available for our salvation. His blood cleanses us from all our sins! If you confess your sins and invite Jesus to come into your heart He will cleanse you of all your sins.

Hell Is Real

By (Author unknown)

I went into my classroom
ready for another year at school.
I didn't want the work,
Just wanted to hang and be cool.

I had on new clothes,
new sneaks on my feet.
I was there for class on time,
went to the back and took my seat.

Yeah, I'm moving up.
I'm already grown.
Soon I'll be graduating
and out on my own.

I talked to some of my friends.
We were all having fun.
Said some things I shouldn't have said,
did stuff I shouldn't have done.

I knew I was different.
I felt God touch my heart.
I knew I should set a standard,
but then I'd be set apart.

Walking to the bus,
I was not looking for strength.
I heard the car tires screeching,
but now it's too late.

I'm standing in this room
and I can see the heavenly gate.
Oh no! I never prayed.
I thought I had time to get it straight.

An angel walked to me.
He had a book in his hand.
I knew it was the Book of Life.
When would this dream end?

I told him my name,
and he began to look.
Then he looked at me sadly and said,
"Your name is not in this book."

"Angel, this is a dream.
No, I can't be dead!"
He closed the book and turned away.
He whispered - "You cannot proceed ahead."

"No, no this can't be real.
Angel, you can't turn me away.
Let me talk to God.
Maybe He'll let me stay."

He led me to the gate.
Jesus came right up to me,
He did not let me in but said,
"Beloved what is your need?"

"Jesus," I cried, "Please
don't cast me away from you."
Tears ran down His face as He said,
"You knew what you needed to do."

"Lord, please I'm young.
I never thought I would die.
I thought I'd have plenty of time.
Death caught me by surprise.

"Lord, I went to church.
Please Jesus, I believe."
He said, "You would not accept me.
My love you would not receive."

"Lord, there were too many hypocrites.
They weren't being true."
He took a step back and asked,
"What does that have to do with you?"

"Lord, my family claimed to be saved,
They weren't real. You know."
He said, "I died for you.
Now I have to go."

I fell to my knees crying to Him.
"Lord, I planned to be real tomorrow."
I couldn't, make Him understand.
I had never -- felt such sorrow.

Then it hit me hard, I said
"Lord, where will I go?"
He looked into my eyes and said,
"My child you already know."

"Please Jesus, " I begged,
"the place is so hot."
It seemed to trouble and grieve Him.
He whispered, "DEPART FROM ME, I KNOW YOU NOT."

"Lord, you're supposed to be love.
How can you send me to damnation?"
He replied, "With your mouth you said you loved me,
but each day you rejected my salvation."

With that in an instant,
day turned into night.
I never knew such torture could be.
Now too late, I know the Bible is right.

If I can tell you anything,
hell has no age.
It is a place of torture,
separated from God and full of rage.

You know I thought it was funny -- a joke,
but this one thing is true.
If you never accept Jesus Christ
HELL IS WAITING FOR YOU!

So please ask him into your heart.

God who carries your Burden

By Sheela Isaac

Mathew 11:28 "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Mathew 11:29 "Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

Today, are you going through problems, are you carrying heavy load of burden? Are you in pain because you are lonely? Are you in pain because of losing something very precious? Are you in pain because you lost your dear ones? Are you in pain, because somebody deceived you? Are you going through financial burden? Are you sick today and you have do not have any hope? Has your Doctor told you, "I've done my best, now nothing further can be done?" Is your future looking doomed? Do you say "I've lost everything and I am at the brink of disaster? Do you say, "I am at the end of the road?" But be happy you are not finished, Jesus is still on the throne to help you, to wipe away all your tears, to console you and comfort you. Lord Jesus says, "come to me and I will give you rest. Come and I will wipe away your tears, come and I will remove your sorrows."

Yes my friend, Lord Jesus understands your tears. He knows what it is to go through poverty because He lived in this world as a poor carpenter. He knows what it is to be sick and in pain, because He hang on the cross on 3 nails. He knows what it is to be restless and in fear, because He was in the garden of Gethsameny, in so much mental pain and agony that His sweat was falling down like blood drops.

Luke 22:44, "And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground." He knows every situation from which you walk through, He can help you.

Now the question is, "how to get rid of the burden which I am carrying?

1. Pour your burden before Jesus:

If you are going through this situation, if you think that you need peace in your life, the best method is to get rid of that burden by sitting at the feet of Jesus and shedding tears. Pour your heart before the king of kings and Lord of Lords. Say to Him, "Lord, I am helpless, please help me, I am in pain, please deliver me." He will see your tears and pull you out from that pain.

Many times I see people sharing their burden with other people, with their friends, with their relatives, and end up in despair, and in tears. Why? That is not the right place to pour your heart. Remember, man is man, but God is God. Man can not wipe your tears, but Jesus can. There is a phrase in Hindi: "Andha andhe ko kya rasta dikhaye?" It means "How can a blind man lead another blind person?" Look toward Jesus who has overcome the world and was raised from the dead and sat at the right hand of the Father God. Who says, "Keys of heaven and hell are in my hand."; Who says, "I am the resurrection and the Life"; "I am the beginning and the end." He can help you.

Please pray this prayer:

Lord Jesus I come to your presence with a broken heart. Lord you know my agony, Lord you know my tears. How much tears I shed, how much I cried, but now I come to you. I know that you can help me. I know that you have overcome every situation. I know that you are the fountain of joy. You and only you can give me peace and happiness. Please help me. Please remove this pain and hurt from my life and give me peace. Please remove this sickness and give me health and healing. Please deliver me from my financial burden. Lord today I put my burden at your feet and I know that I am free now. I am free in Jesus name. Amen
