    SCARS IN THE HANDS OF JESUS



     


    My eyes haven't seen, nor have my ears heard
     what the Father has in store

    But when I hear the sound of a sweet singing bird, 
    I'm closer than I've been before

    To that heavenly home, built by God alone, 
    according to His perfect plan.

    Where the only thing there that's been made by man 
    Are the scars in the hands of Jesus.


    Yes, I'm headed for a home built by God alone. 
    Hallelujah, Praise the Lord I am. 
    Where the only thing there that's been made by man
     Are the scars in the hands of Jesus.

    When I see a mountain covered 
    with snow that's fallen from heaven above, 
    It makes me feel small, hardly nothing at all, 
    to know I'll be a part of That mansion world 
    where the gates of pearl are opened by an angel band,


    And the only thing there that's been made by man 
    are the scars in the hands of Jesus.

    Yes, I'm headed for a home built by God alone.
     Hallelujah, Praise the Lord I am.

    Where the only thing there that's been made by man 
    Are the scars in the hands of Jesus.

    Where the only thing there that's been made by man 
    Are the scars in the hands of Jesus.

    With God's Love,

    JESUS IS ALIVE





    HE IS RISEN  - A BEAUTIFUL HYMN

    Someone rolled the stone away, was it a thief? No; it was an Angel...Mary said "He lives again", do you believe? Yes, He is my Savior...Thomas was a doubter until he saw for himself, Jesus even let him touch, the spear hole in His side..

    He is risen, He is risen, Yes my Lord is risen today, There are linens with blood stains that is all, that remains, There's nobody left, in that grave.

    "Tear this temple down", He said, and in three days, I, will rebuild it...Jesus had to die before we all could be saved , that is how God willed it..Those who had Him crucified thought He had seen His end, They didn't know the cross would be His victory...

     With God's Love,

    Lois J.

    ECCLESIASTES 3:1 - To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

                           All Is Well
                   The virgin white of Winter
                   Now wears a shawl of green
                   For all the trees are budding
                   And flowers can be seen.

                   The snow that chilled us yesterday
                   Has melted like a dream
                   For now the stone is rolled away
                   Beneath the sunlight's gleam.

                   How sweet the sound of Spring
                   As songbirds now return,
                   And here below the rainbow
                   Earth makes another turn.

                   For Spring's a noble season,
                   One of show and tell,
                   When God reveals His Majesty
                   And shows us all is well.

                                                Poet,  Clay Harrison

    Why Did Jesus Fold the Napkin?


    Why did Jesus fold the linen burial cloth after His resurrection?

    The Gospel of John (20:7) tells us that the napkin, which was placed over 
    the face of Jesus, was not just thrown aside like the grave clothes.

    The Bible takes an entire verse to tell us that the napkin was neatly 
    folded, and was placed at the head of that stony coffin.

    Early Sunday morning, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the 
    tomb and found that the stone had been rolled away from the
    entrance.

    She ran and found Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus 
    loved. She said, 'They have taken the Lord's body out of the
    tomb, and I don't know where they have put him!'

    Peter and the other disciple ran to the tomb to see. The other disciple 
    out ran Peter and got there first. He stooped and looked in
    and saw the linen cloth lying there, but he didn't go in.

    Then Simon Peter arrived and went inside. He also noticed the linen 
    wrappings lying there, while the cloth that had covered Jesus' head
    was folded up and lying to the side.

    Was that important? Absolutely!

    Is it really significant? Yes!

    In order to understand the significance of the folded napkin, you have to 
    understand a little bit about Hebrew tradition of that day.

    The folded napkin had to do with the Master and Servant, and every

    Jewish boy knew this tradition.

    When the servant set the dinner table for the master, he made sure that 
    it was exactly the way the master wanted it.

    The table was furnished perfectly, and then the servant would wait, just 
    out of sight, until the master had finished eating, and the
    servant would not dare touch that table, until the master was finished.

    Now if the master were done eating, he would rise from the table, wipe 
    his fingers, his mouth, and clean his beard, and would wad up that
    napkin and toss it onto the table.

    The servant would then know to clear the table. For in those days, the 
    wadded napkin meant, 'I'm done'.

    But if the master got up from the table, and folded his napkin, and laid 
    it beside his plate, the servant would not dare touch the table,
    because...........

    The folded napkin meant, 'I'm coming back!'

    He is Coming Back!!

    INSTRUCTIONS CONCERNING WIDOWS

    1 TIMOTHY CHAPTER 5

    REBUKE NOT AN ELDER, BUT ENTREAT HIM AS A FATHER; AND THE YOUNGER MEN AS BRETHREN; 2. The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity. 3. Honor widows that are widows indeed. 4. But if any widow have children or nephews (grandchildren), let them learn first to show piety at home, and to requite (repay) their parents: for that is good and acceptable before God. 5. Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, (left alone), trusteth in God, and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day. 6. But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth. 7. And these things give in charge, that they may be blameless. 8. But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel. 9. Let not a widow be taken into the number under threescore years old, having been the wife of one man. 10. Well reported of for good works; if she have brought up children, if she have lodged strangers, if she have washed the saints feet, if she have relieved the afflicted, if she have diligently followed every good work. 11. But the younger widows refuse: for when they have begun to wax wanton against Christ, they will marry; 12. Having damnation, because they have cast of their first faith. 13. And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not. 14. I will therefore that the younger women marry, bearing children, guide the house, give now occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully. 15. For some are already tuned aside after Satan. 16. If any man or woman that believeth have widows, let them relieve them, and let not the church be charged; that, it may relieve them that are widows indeed.

    DUTY TO ELDERS

    17. Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially they who labor in the word ad doctrine. 18. For the scripture saith, THOU SHALT NOT MUZZLE THE OX THAT TREADETH OUT THE CORN. And, The laborer is worthy of his reward. 19. Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses. 20. Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear. 21. I charge thee before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality. 22. Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partakers of other men’s sins: keep thyself pure. 23. Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach’s sake and thine often infirmities. 24. Some men’s sins are open beforehand, going before to judgment; and some men they follow after. 25. Likewise also the good works of some are manifest beforehand; and they that are otherwise cannot be hid. KJV
