This Message of Life
“..we looked upon and have touched with our hands… the word of life— the life was made manifest, and we have seen it, and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was made manifest to us— …our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ.”
Come and Rest in My PresenceWorship Jesus, Yeshua Hamashiach, the promised Messiah, God born as man, the Word of Life made manifest to us! Tell Jesus how you feel about what He did and fellowship with Him.
“Let us think often that our only business in this life is to please God. Perhaps all besides is but folly and vanity.” (Brother Lawrence, c.1614–1691)

“’Fellow Jews, Abraham’s descendants, and all those among you who worship and reverence God, this Message of Life has been sent for us all to hear. But the people of Jerusalem and their leaders didn’t realize who he was, nor did they understand the prophecies written of him. Yet they fulfilled those very prophecies, which they read week after week in their meetings, by condemning him to death. Even though they could come up with no legal grounds for the death sentence, they pleaded with Pilate to have him executed. And they did to him all that was prophesied they would do. Then they took him down from the cross and laid him in a tomb. But God raised him from the dead! And for many days afterward he appeared on numerous occasions to his disciples who knew him well and had followed him from Galilee to Jerusalem. Those disciples are now his witnesses, telling the people the truth about him. So here we are to share with you some wonderful news! The promise God made to our forefathers has now been fulfilled for us, their children... So listen, friends! Through this Jesus, the forgiveness of sins is offered to you. Everyone who believes in him is set free from sin and guilt—something the law of Moses had no power to do.”
“The following week, nearly everyone in the city gathered to hear the word of God.When the Jewish leaders saw the size of the crowds, vicious jealousy filled their hearts and they rose up to oppose what Paul was teaching. They insulted him and argued with him over everything he said. Yet Paul and Barnabas did not back down. Filled with courage, they boldly replied, ‘We were compelled to bring God’s message first to you Jews. But seeing you’ve rejected this message and refuse to embrace eternal life, we will focus instead on the nations and offer it to them. This will fulfil what the Lord has commanded us: I have destined you to become a beacon light for the nations And release salvation to the ends of the earth!’ When the non-Jewish people in the crowd heard these words, they were thrilled and they honoured the word of the Lord. All who believed that they were destined to experience eternal life received the message. God’s word spread like wildfire throughout the entire region.They left the new converts in Antioch overflowing with the joy of the Holy Spirit.”
Listen to what the Word Says, Obey and Share.

O: Will you pray for the Jews and bless Israel? (Genesis 12:3, Nehemiah 1:5-6, Psalm 122:6)
