EAST FROM THE WEST
From: Pastor Vinod
Dear Friends in Christ ... Greetings in Jesus's Name!!! SHALOM!!!
Thanks for your prayers and faithful support,that enabled me carry the gospel of Jesus Christ literally to the nations. I appreciate so deeply your love, prayers & generosity that you have sown into my life and ministry ... May your reward continue to increase!!!
As I was just glancing through the word of God and reading one morning Psalm 103; something startling grabbed hold of my soul. Psalm 103:11 says that the Mercy of our God toward those who fear Him is as high as the heaven from the earth. And then Ps103:12 says ... As far as east is from the west, so far hath He removed our sins from us! Wow!! Here is a little funny yet profound facto. Something you may have never pondered upon before. Geographically, we have a NORTH pole & a SOUTH pole, but we don't have a EAST pole and a WEST pole - How come? A geographical error? A little quirk in the space time continuum? A glitch in the globe? A blunder of early scientists? Or may be an international oversight to teach us a valuable lesson and unravel an amazing spiritual reality!!!
Well, see you can only go NORTH so far and you reach a pole, if you go any farther you are going SOUTH. But if you try to go to EAST, you may travel your entire life and never get there! And surprisingly same thing in the other direction - head for the WEST and you can ride till the wheels of your Jeep fall off, but you never get there!! EAST IS INFINITELY FAR FROM WEST!! YOU CAN NEVER FIND THESE POLES!!!
God doesn't just take our sins a little far away and leave them there where we can still see them. Instead, He takes them,"As far as the EAST is from the WEST." (Ps.103:12) ... Just how far is that? ... Well, we will never know - that's it! Despite science being so advance and seemingly solving every mystery of this gigantic universe that God created; still scientist don't know how far is EAST from WEST ... Hallelujah ... Glory to our risen savior ... CHRIST HAS THROWN OUR SINS FAR AWAY ... HOW FAR NO ONE CAN KNOW ... Don't even bother looking. Lord says, "... and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depth of the sea!" (Micah 7:19)
The only thing He requires is that we turn away from our sins and ask for forgiveness (1John1:9). Then He is gracious, loving, faithful & just to remove our sins. Your sins only get in the way and God doesn't want them get around (Isaiah 59:2).
Hand them all over to JESUS ... HE KNOWS HOW TO REMOVE GARBAGE FROM OUR LIVES & CLEAN EVERY MESS ... LET US ALL DRAW CLOSER TO HIM FOR FRESH CLEANSING. LET US BATHE AFRESH IN HIS HOLY BLOOD ... Hallelujah ... IN JESUS' NAME ... AMEN ... YOUR's IN HIS KINGDOM ... PASTOR VINOD.
When God, washes with the Blood your sin is forgiven and forgotten ... 2jesus
