Truly, It Is Finished


There is a time and place,

Where two worlds collide;

As calloused hearts melt like ice

Before the foot of the Cross.

His forgiveness is best known,

When He spoke these words:

“IT IS FINISHED!”

“How can that be? We proclaim.

“We remember what we’ve done.”

Again, the Lord speaks to us.

“IT IS FINISHED!

My body has been broken and My blood has been poured out for you all.

Completely covers you.

So, why do you condemn yourselves and others,

When I have already forgiven you all.

Listen to Me dearly beloved children,

Let it go and bring it up no more.

IT IS FINISHED!

The battle has been won!

Now, REJOICE!

The Lord Speaks: He alone is Judge


The Lord says, “Do My people listen and take to heart what all I’ve said and continue to say to them?”

“Let Me assure you all then when I speak directions to you and you do not heed my instructions to you; you will reap the consequences of your disobedience to ME. Just as I am merciful; I am just also. As I spoke to the crowd that wanted to stone the woman caught in adultery, so I say to you all, let he who is without sin cast the first stone. And with that the crowd disbursed. There were none left except for ME, who is the only one who never sinned, I did not condemn her but forgave her instructing to sin no more. I AM the LORD and there is NO OTHER, likewise there is only one judge and I AM HE and there is NO OTHER JUDGE.

Listen to ME as to when I give you authority to judge one another and NOT point the finger when are also guilty. Seek ME. Pursue ME. Petition Me on behalf of not only your loved ones and nation but indeed the whole earth.

For those already doing this, continue so that I will hear and heal the earth and all that is in it.

Remember I see, hear, and know the hearts of all and yes there are those who are devoted to ,I the LORD, for destruction and those devoted to live with ME in Paradise. I AM THE ONE WHO MAKES THAT DECISION AND NOT YOU. “

Says the LORD

Salvation's King


The mountains quake,

The oceans roar,

The trees clap their hands,

In celebration of the newborn King.

The wondrous mystery.

Oh, to glimpse on the eyes of salvation;

His love for humanity.

To dance before the humbled King,

In the vast expanse of eternity.

What joy and hope!

We have in the redemption.

As we press our gaze

Ever more on the return of the King,

When He comes as the Commander of Heaven’s armies

To bring justice to this world.

So, rejoice, all who are weary!

Rejoice and cry out praises to the King,

for He never changes.

His words are faithful and true!

Rejoice, He has overcome the world!
