Freedom Through Mercy

Numbers 15:27
And if any person sins unknowingly or unintentionally, he shall offer a female goat a year old for a sin offering.

This was given to Moses from the LORD to give to the children of Israel. This verse just further shows GOD's love for mankind especially at that time. Jesus had not been crucified yet, therefore the Holy Spirit had not be given. God's Word clearly states in John 16:8 that the Holy Spirit will convict the world of sin but as I said before He- God the Spirit was not given yet. In this we see that truly God prefers mercy over judgment because He could've let those that were sinning unintentionally perish. But He didn't...He provided instructions for them. Just like now GOD is the same loving Creator to the lost and Father to those found in His Son. When you have an opportunity to share Jesus with someone please tell them that GOD would rather show them mercy and lovingkindness, than judgment and wrath. Some people have been raised to see GOD as a GOD of severe punishment and judgment and they expect GOD to zap them OR they expect GOD to zap others when they are done wrong. It's important to share with those that think like this that though you and I "DESERVE" the wrath GOD, He sent Jesus so He could legally show us His mercy instead. Always remember GOD is a God of love and reconciliation. He is also a punisher of sin, because sin is rebellion against GOD. Let's help people to experience the mercy of GOD instead of watching them go on blindly towards His wrath. As you celebrate "Independence Day" rememebr you were freed to help free others. You were loosed from your chains to help someone else be freed from their chains. Jesus overcame so we could overcome...all honor to the true LIBERATOR Jesus Christ.

Let God Urge Men to Christ Through YOU! 2 Corinthians 5:20


Prayer for Everyone
