The Messiah Prophesies
Love without boundaries

Love driving motorcycles
There is a wild side. May 1976 brother broke his leg. Fixed the bike. Took brother's tutor home and had a serious accident. Lungs punctured. It was everyone else's fault. Age 16. Lost perspective of God.
Clarity of mind is important in life.
If you are thirsty, come and drink water! If you don't have any money, come, eat what you want! Drink wine and milk without paying a cent. Why waste your money on what really isn't food? Why work hard for something that doesn't satisfy? Listen carefully to me, and you will enjoy the very best foods. Pay close attention! Come to me and live. I will promise you the eternal love and loyalty that I promised David. Turn to the Lord ! He can still be found. Call out to God! He is near. The Lord says: "My thoughts and my ways are not like yours.
Isaiah 55:1-3, 6, 8 CEV
He suffered and endured great pain for us, but we thought his suffering was punishment from God. He was wounded and crushed because of our sins; by taking our punishment, he made us completely well.
Isaiah 53:4-5 CEV
When we encounter our brokenness we know there is a loving God.
If uncle Joe leaves everything to you, it may end up in court to test whether it really is what he wanted.
God's will was recorded 100s of years before it came to pass.
The Lord says: My servant will succeed! He will be given great praise and the highest honors. Many were horrified at what happened to him. But everyone who saw him was even more horrified because he suffered until he no longer looked human. My servant will make nations worthy to worship me; kings will be silent as they bow in wonder. They will see and think about things they have never seen or thought about before.
Isaiah 52:13-15 CEV
Jesus is a servant and shepherd.
Has anyone believed us or seen the mighty power of the Lord in action? Like a young plant or a root that sprouts in dry ground, the servant grew up obeying the Lord . He wasn't some handsome king. Nothing about the way he looked made him attractive to us. He was hated and rejected; his life was filled with sorrow and terrible suffering. No one wanted to look at him. We despised him and said, "He is a nobody!" He suffered and endured great pain for us, but we thought his suffering was punishment from God. He was wounded and crushed because of our sins; by taking our punishment, he made us completely well. All of us were like sheep that had wandered off. We had each gone our own way, but the Lord gave him the punishment we deserved. He was painfully abused, but he did not complain. He was silent like a lamb being led to the butcher, as quiet as a sheep having its wool cut off. He was condemned to death without a fair trial. Who could have imagined what would happen to him? His life was taken away because of the sinful things my people had done.
Isaiah 53:1-8 CEV
He was born into poverty. He carried our sorrows. He was crushed.
Carried our sorrows.
The everlasting God loves you so much.
After the crash called dad to come and take him to hospital. His dad hugged him said it's ok.
He's 92 today.
Embrace the Father's Love today.
