This page explains from the Bible how LOVED you are from Heaven! If Interested – Read on! NOT interested – please just click on another menu button to exit. We do not want to force this on you!
John 3:16 “For God so Loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall not Perish, but have everlasting Life.”
Romans 3:10 “As it is written, There is none righteous, no. not one.”
Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, BUT the gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord”
God did not want everyone to go to Hell, so He came up with a plan: He sent His Son, Jesus, to earth for the sole purpose of dying in OUR place. For all humanity mattered to God! Jesus lived a sinless life, then went to the cross and shed His innocent blood and his broken body for you and me.. He then rose again on the 3rd day to show His power over death. 2 Cor. 5:21 “ He hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.
SO LET’S SUM IT UP:
Contrary to popular belief, NO amount of “good works” can get us one step closer to heaven. On our merits!
Eph. 2:8-9, “For by GRACE are you saved, through FAITH, and not of yourselves- it is the gift of God. NOT of works lest any man should boast.”
Bible says “Believe” The word believe means to “trust in, rely on and adhere to”.
Bible says “Repent “ This word repent means, “a change of mind”. You change your mind about who Jesus is and what He has done for you. You now understand that Jesus is the only road to Heaven.. His Perfect LOVE on the Cross for you and me—You can do nothing to save yourself.
My Heavenly Father— I do admit to you that I am a sinner, and I now realize there is nothing I can do to earn my salvation. Thank you so much for sending Jesus to shed His blood and broken body to die in my place on the cross. For you so Loved me. I also understand and believe that Jesus rose on the 3rd day defeated death and is now living in heaven. I accept the Love gift that Jesus has given to me. I now am putting my total trust and relying only on Jesus my salvation.
Thank you, Jesus, for loving me so much you saved me!

Well, I’m not a prophet
And I’m not the son of a prophet
I do have a Prophet’s name (jesus)
I cannot tell you what God is going to do with this time of sheltering.
But I can tell you what God has done, during and after times of sheltering in the past.
And once you review the truth of history as I describe it below, I think you’ll know what He’s
Going to do this time too.
God sheltered Noah and his family for one year in the Ark, until Noah emerged to become the father of all the nations of the world.
God sheltered Jacob in the home of his uncle Laban when he needed to escape the wrath of Esau, his brother, and twenty years later, Jacob emerged with a new family, new wealth, and a new identity,
He became Israel, the new name for God’s chosen people.
God sheltered Joseph from his seventeenth year to his thirtieth, but his slavery and prison became the school where God prepared him for greatness.
God sheltered Moses in a remote desert for forty years, but Moses came forth to liberate the Jewish people from Egypt.
God sheltered Naomi in the barren land of Moab until she nearly became bitter, but she and her daughter-in-law, Ruth, traveled to Bethlehem to participate in one of the greatest love stories of history.
God sheltered David for fifteen years after He’d been anointed King of Israel, When David finally assumed the throne he was a man after God’s own heart and he gave us many of the Psalms.
God sheltered Elijah by the brook Cherith and after the sheltering He stood alone against the prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel.
God sheltered Jonah for three days and three nights in the belly of a whale, When the sheltering was over
Jonah went to Nineveh and preached history’s greatest revival.
God sheltered Daniel for seventy years in Babylon where he wrote this Old Testament book bearing his name outlining the future of God’s dealings with His people.
God sheltered Esther while in the palace of the Persian king and she saved her people from destruction
God sheltered the disciples in the upper room for Ten days until the Holy Spirit descended in dramatic fashion, to form and fashion the church.
God sheltered Paul in the Arabian desert for three years and when he came back he turned the world upside down. God later sheltered Paul in a Roman prison, by the time the apostle was free
He had written the prison epistles: Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, and Philemon.
God sheltered the apostle John on the isle of Patmos and the book of Revelation The greatest Prophetic document of all time, was given to us.
God sheltered Jesus in a tomb for three days and on the third day Jesus came forth in power to bring salvation to the whole world.
We don’t know what God will do next, But what we do know is what He has done!
And that is what we can count on.
The God who sheltered His people in biblical days wont stop now.
I’m trusting in the sheltering God to be my refuge. And so can you!
You have been a refuge to the poor,
A refuge for the needy in their distress,
A shelter from the storm and
A shade from the heat.
