Hallelujah! The angels are singing. It's a true story of angels caught on tape singing on U-Tube. But the best part is verse that is sung in the middle of the Hallelujah course.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OW46tuZA5So
The verse goes like this...
"Hallelujah breath it across all the land,
Everybody's singing at the Lord's Command.
All the Saints and the angels in Heave wait to hear the news,
Of Jesus and His Children as they are coming through."
Think about this. Realize what it means! Then Believe!

The Story of Jesus
Two hour story of Jesus' Life According to Luke in the Bible
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=3195511837635844843#


THE (SCIENTIFIC ) DEATH OF JESUS
DEATH OF JESUS
At the age of 33, Jesus was condemned to the death penalty.
DEATH OF JESUS
At the time, crucifixion was the "worst" death. Only the worst criminal were condemned to be crucified. Yet it was even more dreadful for Jesus, unlike other criminals condemned to death by crucifixion, Jesus, who was innocent, was to nailed to the cross by His hands and feet.
DEATH OF JESUS
Each nail was 6 to 8 inches long.
DEATH OF JESUS
The nails were driven into His wrist. Not into his palms as is commonly portrayed. There is a tendon in the wrist that extends to the shoulder. The Roman guards knew that when the nails were being hammered into the wrist, that the tendon would tear and break forcing Jesus to use His back muscles to support himself so that He could breathe.
DEATH OF JESUS
Both of His feet were nailed together. Thus, he was forced to support Himself on the single nail that impaled His feet to the cross. Jesus could not support Himself with His legs because of the pain. He was forced to alternate between arching His back then using his legs just to continue to breathe. Imagine the struggle, the pain, the suffering, the courage!
DEATH OF JESUS
Jesus endured this reality for over three hours! Yes, over three hours! Can you imagine this kind of suffering? A few minutes before He died, Jesus stopped bleeding. He was simply pouring water from his wounds.
DEATH OF JESUS
From common images we see wounds to His hands, feet and even the spear wound to His side. But, do we realize His wounds were actually made in his body? A hammer driving large nails through the wrist, the feet overlapped and an even larger nail hammered through the arches. And then a Roman guard pierced His side with a spear. Before the nails and the spear, Jesus was whipped and beaten. The whipping was so severe that it tore flesh from his body. The beating so horrific that His face was torn and his beard ripped from his face. The crown of thorns cut deeply into His scalp. Most men would not have survived this torture!
DEATH OF JESUS
He had no more blood to bleed out, only water poured from His wounds. The human adult body contains about 3.5 liters (just less than a gallon) of blood. Jesus poured out all 3.5 liters of his blood.
DEATH OF JESUS
He had three nails hammered into his hands and feet; a crown of thorns on His head and beyond that, a Roman soldier who stabbed a spear into his side.
DEATH OF JESUS
All of the above without mentioning the humiliation He endured, while carrying his own cross for almost two kilometers while a crowd spat in His face and threw stones. The cross was almost 30 kg of weight, only for the upper part where his hands were nailed.
DEATH OF JESUS

Jesus had to endure this experience to that you can have free access to God. So that your sins could be "washed away." All of them, with no exception! JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR YOU! Do not believe that He only died for others (those who go to church, pastors, or are good.) For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.  John 3:16-17
DEATH OF JESUS
Jesus died for you! It's easy to ignore, but when it comes to God, sometimes we feel ashamed to tell others because we are worried about what they may think or that they may be offended.
Accept the reality! The TRUTH is that Jesus is the ONLY SALVATION FOR THE WORLD.
DEATH OF JESUS
"I am the Way...yes, and the Truth and the Life. No one can get to the Father except by means of me."
John 14: 6    God has a plan for all of us.
DEATH OF JESUS
Spend 60 seconds with God... Admit that you are a sinner, Ask Him to forgive you, Accept His Son, Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior. Read His word, then go out and tell everyone you know about what He has done for you! Take a moment to appreciate the power of God in your life.
DEATH OF JESUS
Jesus said, "Everyone therefore who acknowledges me before others, I also will acknowledge before my Father in heaven; but whosever denies me before others, I will deny before my Father in heaven."
Mathew 10: 32-33
I love God and his Son, Jesus Christ is my savior. He keeps me alive, watches over me, cares for me. Without Him, I am nothing, but with Him, "I can do all things through Him who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13
To live in this world today, YOU need Jesus to be your Savior too. If you love God and you believe and trust in His salvation through Jesus Christ, and you love your fellow humans, go tell everyone you know, that
JESUS DIED FOR THEM TOO!

Ultimate Freedom! It's Wonderful! Praise Him! Sung by Alan Jackson
http://www.openmyeyeslord.net/UltimateFreedom.htm

The Apostles' Creed

I believe in God the Father Almighty,
Creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord.
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit born of the virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried.
He descended into hell.
On the third day He rose again from the dead,
ascended into heaven,
sits at the right hand of God the Father almighty.
Thence He will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting.
Amen.


HE IS

Author Unknown

He is the First and The Last, the Beginning and the End!
He is the Keeper of Creation and the Creator of all!

He is the Architect of the universe and the Manager of all times.
He always was, He always is, and He always will be...
Unmoved, Unchanged, Undefeated, and never Undone!
He was bruised and brought healing!
He was pierced and eased pain!
He was persecuted and brought freedom!
He was dead and brought life!
He is risen and brings power!
He reigns and brings peace!

The world can't understand Him,
The armies couldn't defeat Him,
The schools can't explain Him, and
The leaders can't ignore Him.

Herod couldn't kill Him,
The Pharisees couldn't confuse Him, and
The people couldn't hold him!
Nero couldn't crush Him,
Hitler couldn't silence Him,
The New Age can't replace Him, and
Donahue can't explain Him away!

He is Light, Love, Longevity, and Lord.
He is Goodness, Kindness, Gentleness, and God.
His is Holy, Righteous, Mighty, Powerful, and Pure.

His ways are right, His word is eternal,
His will is unchanging, and His mind is on me.
He is my Redeemer, He is my Savior,
He is my guide, and He is my peace!
He is my joy, He is my comfort,
He is my Lord, and He rules my life!
I serve Him because His bond is love, His burden is light, and
His goal for me abundant life.

I follow Him because He is the wisdom of the wise,
The power of the powerful, the ancient of days, the ruler of rulers,
The leader of leaders, the overseer of the overcomers, and
The sovereign Lord of all that was and is and is to come.

And if that seems impressive to you, try this for size...

His goal is a relationship with ME!
He will never leave me, never forsake me,
Never mislead me, never forget me, never overlook me, and
Never cancel my appointment in His appointment book!

When I fall, He lifts me up!
When I fail, He forgives!
When I am weak, He is strong!
When I am lost, He is the way!
When I am afraid, He is my courage!
When I stumble, He steadies me!
When I am hurt, He heals me!
When I am broken, He mends me!
When I am blind, He leads me!
When I am hungry, He feeds me!
When I face trials, He is with me!
When I face persecution, He shields me!
When I face problems, He comforts me!
When I face loss, He provides for me!
When I face Death, He carries me Home!

He is everything for everybody, everywhere, every time, and every way.
He is God, He is faithful.
I am His, and He is mine!
My Father in heaven can whip the father of this world.
So, if you're wondering why I feel so secure, understand this...

He said it and that settles it.
God is in control, I am on His side, and that means all is well with my soul.

Every day is a blessing for GOD IS!
I love the Lord and thank Him for all that He does in my life, therefore,
I'm passing this on to you.
Yes, I do love Jesus. He is my source of existence and Savior.
He keeps me functioning each and every day. Without Him, I will be nothing.

"Without Him, I am nothing, but with Him I can do all things."
Philippians 4:13

Jesus is our assurance of eternal life.


Life got you down? Everything seem to go wrong?
Read the story below.

IS YOUR LITTLE HUT BURNING?

The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small, uninhabited island.  He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him, and every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming. Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect him  from the elements, and to store his few possessions.

But then one day, after scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his little hut in flames, the smoke rolling up to the sky. The worst had happened; everything was lost. He was stunned with grief and anger, "God, how could you do this to me!" he cried.

Early the next day, however, he was awakened by the sound of a ship that was approaching the island. It had come to rescue him. "How did you know I was here?" asked the weary man of his rescuers.

"We saw your smoke  signal," they replied.

It is easy to get discouraged when things are going bad, but we shouldn't  lose heart, because God is at work in our lives, even in the midst of pain and suffering. Remember, next time your little hut is burning to the ground----it just may be a smoke signal that summons the grace of God. For all the negative things we have to say to ourselves, God has a positive answer for it.

You say: "It's impossible" 
God says: All things are possible (Luke 18:27)

You say: "Nobody really loves me" 
God says: I love you (John 3:16 & John 13:34)

You say: "I can't go on" 
God says: My grace is sufficient (II Corinthians 12:9 & Psalm  91:15)

You say: "I can't figure things out" 
God says: I will direct your steps (Proverbs 3:5-6)

  You say: "I can't do it"
God says: You can do all things (Philippians 4:13)

You say: "I'm not able" 
God says: I am able (II Corinthians 9:8)

You say: "It's not worth it" 
God says: It will be worth it (Roman 8:28)

You say: "I can't forgive myself"
God says: I FORGIVE YOU (I John 1:9 & Romans 8:1)

You say: "I can't manage"
God says: I will supply all your needs (Philippians 4:19)

You say: "I'm afraid" 
God says: I have not given you a spirit of fear (II Timothy 1:7)

You say: "I'm always worried and frustrated" 
God says: Cast all your cares on ME (I Peter 5:7)

You say: "I don't have enough faith"
God says: I've given everyone a measure of faith (Romans 12:3)

You say: "I'm not smart enough"
God says: I give you wisdom (I Corinthians 1:30)

You say: "I feel all alone" 
God says: I will never leave you or forsake you (Hebrews13:5)


When life gets you down, you need to reaffirm Who YOU Are in Christ. Here are 2 lists that Christ promises who you are in Him. You need to read these and believe them, to counter the lies of our enemy.

WHO AM I?

THE DISSERTATION STONE

II Corinthians 12:9
And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

There’s a little red rock sitting on my desk near my computer. I call it my dissertation stone. You see, years ago when I was working on my doctorate, I faced the same battle every time I faced a new assignment. I’d sit down to write my paper or to take an exam and Satan, my enemy, would be right there beside me whispering in my ear, “You can’t do this. You aren’t smart enough.” When I stopped long enough to remind myself that I had done well last time, he argued, “But you won’t get it right this time.” He filled my head with such doubt and fear, that I’d get up and walk away. The problem wasn’t that he was telling me lies. Satan always tells us lies! The problem was, I was believing his lies! When it came time to research and write my dissertation, the most challenging academic assignment I’d ever faced, the doubts and fears only intensified.

Driving home one day, author Max Lucado was on the radio discussing his new book entitled He Still Moves Stones. His words were so intriguing that I couldn’t get out of the car once I reached home. He reminded me that the very same power that brought Christ back to life and rolled away that incredible stone that sealed His grave is available to me today. It hasn’t changed and it hasn’t diminished. I can face any impossible situation in His power. Whatever difficulty I’m facing today, God’s power is sufficient to overcome. God still moves stones!

As I stepped out of my car, I glanced down and there among all the white gravel was one very noticeable little red stone. I picked it up, carried it to my desk, and placed it at the base of my computer monitor as my visual reminder that God still moves stones. Every time I looked at that little red rock I was reminded to ask God for His power to face that difficult task of writing my dissertation. Satan continued to whisper his lies to try and defeat me, but I no longer believed them.

My friend, as you meditate on the miracle of the resurrected Christ today, remember that whatever impossible situation you are facing, God’s power is sufficient to make you victorious. There is nothing too hard for Him. He still moves stones!

Almighty God, we praise and bless Your name because of who You are. May we never lose sight of Your greatness, and never stop trusting Your power. May we live in the power of the resurrection!
