Jesus had the power to save himself from the cross!
Last night we were on the street with the John 3:7 team between 11 and 2.30am and again saw people repent and receive Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. We have been entrusted with a message of GOOD NEWS which has POWER to SAVE. If people are breathing then that is evidence that God is merciful towards them and wishes them not to perish but come to repentance. This afternoon we were on Grafton Street and then in Temple Bar Square witnessing, holding up the JESUS stickers and preaching. We were again honoured to be joined by Maurice the evangelist from Dundalk (I promise I'll try and get a photo of his scriptural shirt for the next blog entry, it's worth seeing!) and Frank. We later met up with Keith and Robert from St Mark's who were a real blessing.
I preached a few times and the word the Lord gave me was Isaiah 53 and the message that "Jesus had the power to save himself from the cross...Why didn't he save himself? Why did he choose to die for us?..why did he not come to earth, give good teachings, examples and miracles and go back to heaven telling us we can come later. He didn't do this because the justice of God would not allow a single sinner in heaven!...".
