We Have a Most Gracious Powerful and Loving God Who Sets People Free From Sin – Sins and Addictions

Almighty God has given us the waters from which we are to drink, and through Jesus Christ, our loving gracious God has provided us with the Bread of Life. It is all there is Christ Jesus so there is no need to battle and struggle, and yet man does struggle with all this he can at times find it so hard.

The invitation is to you, and what we do with the invitations which God gives is our responsibility. This is where strong clear courageous leadership is so vital and so needed.

I have been reading and studying the prophetic words of that amazing leader, Isaiah. God poured His truth into him and Isaiah poured it out for our edification and instruction and blessing. These thoughts emerge from Chapter 55 in Isaiah’s prophetic book.

God is saying, “Listen and listen to Me, and eat what is good”. Some people do not believe or realise that what God has for them is good. He has not one bad thing to give them.

Listen with a listening ear, wanting to hear from God, and wanting to believe what God has to say, and not to miss it. Listen, waiting to accept what the risen and living Jesus has to say through the Holy Spirit.

Listen to me. That might be regarded as some as arrogance, but not so.

You will be satisfied. This richest of fare won’t make you overweight, nor will this drink harm you in any way. You can drink what Jesus offers you and never go over the limit.

Verse 3 has such simple words of one syllable. It is astonishing how simple Isaiah makes God’s holy word at times.

Isaiah goes on to speak to the people of Israel, reminding them of who they are and what He is going to do, and He speaks too about the influence they are about to have.

All this came so very true in and through Jesus Christ, some six hundred years later. It was a long wait, but it was certainly worth it.

In verse 6, Isaiah issues a word of command that has blessed thousands over the years.

We cannot find Jesus just when we want to, or when we decide.

There comes that moment when Jesus calls, or when God draws near, or when God speaks, and when the Holy Spirit moves. Our response is, “Come Jesus and save me and rescue me and deal with me and forgive my sins and fill me with the Holy Spirit.”

There has to be a calling in some shape or form, and that might mean losing your dignity. Is it not better to lose your dignity for a very brief period and thereafter to know that you are spiritually secure and safe in Christ?

In verse 7, Isaiah is so clear and specific, and he spells it out in such detail. “Let the wicked forsake he way and the evil man his thoughts.” There has to be this turning to the Lord, and the response and reaction and consequence is that He will have mercy on that man who turns to Almighty God, for He will freely pardon. The words could not be simpler. The instructions could not be more simple or straightforward. Yet, people struggle with this.

All tied up in this too is deliverance and it can involve deliverance and being released and set free from some addiction. Clinics can be exceedingly expensive and it is possible to be set free through Jesus Christ without money and without price.

Do read the whole Chapter. It could prevent you from wasting thousands of dollars and pounds!

The order is, turn to God, and receive mercy and pardon. Check it out. These are real riches.

Here in Isaiah is the clear notion of repenting and turning around, and beginning to walk in a different direction. Then, we can walk in the light of God and be released from sin and darkness and fear and some debilitating addiction.

We have a gracious loving powerful God and He does not tease!

NINOY AQUINO's memorable speech (7/9) in Los Angeles (2-15-1981)

For comments and ratings, please refer to the first part (1/9) of this speech. Thank you. THE LONG WAIT IS OVER! The so-called “Holy Grail” of Ninoy Aquino videos is finally online and can now be seen EXCLUSIVELY here on NINOY AQUINO TV! On February 15, 1981, less than a year after he went on a furlough to seek medical treatment in the United States, Ninoy Aquino has been invited to a freedom rally symposium by the Movement for a Free Philippines (MFP) before a capacity crowd of Filipino and American guests at the Wilshire Ebell Theater in Los Angeles, California; where he spoke with enthusiasm and humor about his life and struggle under the martial law dictatorship of Ferdinand Marcos, his pompous and ambitious wife Imelda…and much more! The presentation you are about to see has been made possible through the efforts extended by our dear friend, MARVIN MATIAS, whose invaluable contribution has paved the way in making this priceless piece of history available to millions of our countrymen. May this video serve as an instrument in remembering a great man of principle and courage who died for the cause of freedom, and at the same time, rekindle our collective minds of what we can do if we choose to be a hero for our country. Your participation will be forever appreciated by your friends here on Ninoy Aquino TV (NATv). Thank you very much. Pardon the video and audio quality! The material is quite old!
