"HAPPY EASTER" FROM ANDREW AND JAMIE WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-04-21


Dear friends,
 
Happy Easter! We love you so much and are so incredibly grateful for you. As we are in this Easter season, we just wanted to send you a special message reminding you of how loved you are.
 
Easter is a great time when we, as believers, can reflect on everything the Lord has accomplished for us by going to the cross, as well as on the promises of God for our lives.
 
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement for our peace was upon Him; and by his stripes we are healed.
Isaiah 53:5
 
The Word promises that, through Jesus's sacrifice on the cross, you are healed and made whole. When you walk in the promises of God, victory is your normal. Jesus took on every shame, every emotional and physical wound, and every sickness when He died on the cross, making it possible for you to live in complete freedom.
 
Jesus loved you enough to set you free before you were even born. On Easter, as you take communion and worship God, we hope that you remember the incredible price He paid for you to live a fulfilled life. He is so worthy of our praise!
 
God loves you. We love you. You are blessed!
 
Sincerely,
 
Andrew & Jamie Signature

"GOD HEALS" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-04-21
IN JOHN 9:3-4 WHERE JESUS HEALED THE MAN THAT WAS BORN BLIND, PEOPLE HAVE TAKEN THIS PASSAGE TO SAY THAT GOD HAD PUT THIS ON THIS MAN TO GET SOME KIND OF GLORY OUT OF IT.  YOU READ IT AND SEE WHAT YOU THINK.  "3Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. 4I must work the works of him that sent me,"  IN THE ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPTS THERE WERE NO PUNCTUATION OR CAPITAL LETTERS OR CHAPTERS.  IT WAS ALL WRITTEN TOGETHER AND THE TRANSLATORS HAD TO PUT IN ALL THE PUNCTUATION AND SEPARATE THE VERSES, CHAPTERS AND SENTENCES. 


WE SEE HOW THE TRANSLATORS PUNCTUATED VERSE 3 AND 4, STARTING 4 AS A NEW SENTENCE.  I CAN SEE WHERE SOME PEOPLE COULD BE MISLEAD.  IT LOOKS LIKE THE MAN, NOR HIS PARENTS, HAD SINNED BUT THE MAN  WAS BLIND SO THAT THE WORKS OF GOD COULD BE MANIFESTED IN HIM. 



LET'S NOT CHANGE A WORD OF THE BIBLE BUT LET'S DO SOME PUNCTUATING.  (JOHN 9:1 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth. 2And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? 3Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents.)  THAT ANSWERED THE DISCIPLES QUESTION.  NOW LET'S START A NEW SENTENCE AND INCLUDE VERSE 4 WITH VERSE 3 AS ONE SENTENCE.   (But that the works of God should be made manifest in him, I must work the works of him that sent me,)   AND JESUS GOES AHEAD AND HEALS HIM.  I JUST THOUGHT THIS WOULD STOP THE ONES THAT THINK GOD PUTS SICKNESS ON PEOPLE TO TEACH THEM SOMETHING OR TO GET SOME GLORY OUT OF IT.  WOULD YOU EVER DO THAT TO ONE OF YOUR CHILDREN?  WELL, OUR LOVING GOD WOULDN'T EITHER.



THIS CAME OUT OF A TEACHING FROM FRED K.C. PRICE, Ever Increasing Faith Ministries.  DR. PRICE HAS A VERY GOOD TEACHING ON THIS.  I CERTAINLY ENJOYED IT AND I HOPE YOU ENJOYED WHAT I HAVE TAKEN OUT OF HIS TEACHING.  



GOD BLESS YOU ALL

"LOVE AND TRUST" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-04-21

Love And Trust




Matthew 9:18, 'While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.'



MATTHEW 9:18-19



Jesus could have healed this girl by His spoken word, but He did as He was requested to do. This illustrates how the Lord ministers to us according to our faith. Jesus ministered to him at the level where his faith was and didn't rebuke his little faith (Jas. 1:5).

There is a human faith which is limited to believing only what we can perceive through our five senses. But the supernatural, God kind of faith goes beyond what we can see, taste, hear, smell, and feel. God's kind of faith calls those things which be not as though they already were.

We exercise faith almost daily in such things as sitting on a chair and driving a car. But our faith is no better than the object in which it is placed. If I were to sit in a chair made of cardboard, I would go crashing to the ground. Regardless of how much faith I had, my faith would fall flat because the object of my faith was faulty. Hebrews 12:2, tells us that we are to be 'looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.' We must transfer our faith from human self reliance and independence, to reliance upon, adherence to, and trust upon Jesus Christ in all areas of our lives. Faith, in its simplest definition, is to trust, to rely, and to depend upon the resource of another. God's Word declares that the object of our faith, Jesus Christ, can never fail or disappoint us.

Love produces faith, or is what makes faith work. We naturally trust those who we know truly love us. A revelation of God's unconditional love for us will make faith just naturally abound in us. Are you struggling with faith? You have a deficiency in understanding how much God loves you. Let Him reveal His love to you today.


"THE LOVE OF JESUS" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-04-20

I COULDN'T FIND ANY INFORMATION ABOUT JUDAS, THE ONE WHO BETRAYED JESUS, OTHER THAN WHAT WAS IN THE BIBLE, BUT DID YOU KNOW HE WAS A BANKER.  IT DOESN'T CALL HIM THAT IN THE BIBLE BUT IT SAYS HE WAS THE KEEPER OF THE BAG.  THE BAG WAS THE MONEY JESUS AND THE DISCIPLES USED IN THEIR MINISTRY AND TO HELP THE POOR.  I CALL THAT A BANKER.






ALTHOUGH THE BIBLE SAYS THAT SOME OF THE MONEY WAS TO HELP THE POOR, JOHN TELLS US THAT JUDAS CARED NOTHING FOR THE POOR BUT HE JUST WANTED THE MONEY THAT WAS IN THE BAG. WHEN MARY, LAZERAS' SISTER, ANOINTED JESUS' FEET WITH SPIKENARD, A COSTLY OIL, JUDAS COMPLAINED.  {JOHN 12:3-6 Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment. Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray him, Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor? This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.)



THE REASON SPIKENARD WAS SO EXPENSIVE WAS THAT IT WAS GROWN VERY HIGH UP IN THE HIMALAYAN MOUNTAINS AND IT COST A LOT TO BRING IT TO PALESTINE. IT SOLD FOR 400 DENARII A POUND WHICH IS ABOUT $750 AN OUNCE IN TODAY'S MONEY.  EVIDENTLY JUDAS DIDN'T THINK JESUS WAS WORTH THAT KIND OF MONEY BUT MARY WAS DIFFERENT,  SHE REALLY LOVED JESUS.



I WRITE THIS TO SHOW HOW MUCH LOVE JESUS HAD FOR EVERYONE AND JUDAS IS A GOOD EXAMPLE OF THIS LOVE.  ALTHOUGH HE KNEW ALL THAT JUDAS WAS GOING TO DO AND THAT HE WAS A THIEF, HE NEVER CONFRONTED HIM ABOUT IT.  JESUS HATED THE SIN BUT LOVED JUDAS.  I BELIEVE JUDAS FINALLY REALIZED THIS WHEN HE TRIED TO RETURN THE MONEY AND EVENTUALLY KILLED HIMSELF.



LET US PRAY THAT WE REALIZE THE CONSEQUENCES OF OUR ACTIONS BEFORE WE DO THEM.  THIS WILL KEEP US FROM SINNING AND KEEP SATAN FROM HAVING ACCESS TO OUR LIVES. JUST REMEMBER JAMES 4:7 THAT SAYS "Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you."



GOD BLESS YOU ALL.




"GOD LIKES US" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-04-20

God Likes Us




Mark 5:19, 'Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.'



MARK 5:18-20



One of the ways God's goodness is revealed is through His mercy. We may describe mercy as 'the readiness of God to relieve the misery of fallen creatures.' Many times, mercy is called compassion or lovingkindness. It is expressed toward the sinner because of the misery that sin has brought upon him.

God's mercy to the believer is revealed by His taking away the misery of sin's consequences through the New Covenant of our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Mercy is not something merited or earned, but as the Apostle Paul states, 'Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to HIS MERCY He saved us.'

Our Heavenly Father is the author, originator, and source of all mercy.

'Mercy is condescending love, reaching out to meet a need without considering the merit of the person who receives the aid' (Expository Dictionary of Bible Words [EDBW]).

'Even when we were spiritually dead because of our sins, God's forbearance was working on our behalf. He was tolerant, patient and kind towards us. God abounded in excessive proportion with good will, compassion, and desire to help us. His disposition was kind, compassionate, and forgiving in His treatment of us. He wanted in abundant supply to alleviate our distress and bring relief from our sins. He did this by giving us life in place of death. It was with Christ that this salvation was secured. By grace, kindness, and favor we are saved. All of this was the result of God's extremely large degree of love wherewith He loved us, always seeking the welfare and betterment of us. God likes us.


DO YOU EXERCISE OR GO TO A GYM?  YOU MIGHT EVEN HAVE A TRAINER?  THERE IS SO MUCH TALK ON THIS THESE DAYS THAT MOST OF US TRY TO DO SOMETHING TO KEEP OUR BODIES IN SHAPE, AND THAT IS GOOD, BUT WHAT ABOUT YOUR SPIRIT?  DO YOU EXERCISE IT?  WE KNOW OUR BODIES HAVE TO BE TAKEN CARE OF IN ORDER FOR IT TO WORK PROPERLY.  WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE WE EAT GOOD, DRINK PLENTY OF WATER, AND PROTECT OURSELVES FROM THE HEAT AND COLD OR ANYTHING THAT WILL HARM US.


OUR SPIRITS NEED TO BE TAKEN CARE OF AS WELL AS OUR BODIES.   IT NEEDS TO BE TRAINED IN THE THINGS OF GOD.  IT NEEDS TO BE FED WITH THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD'S WORD AND WATERED BY HIS "LIVING WATER".  JUST AS OUR BODIES WILL BECOME UNPRODUCTIVE, OUR SPIRITS WILL ALSO BECOME UNPRODUCTIVE.  


IF WE TRY TO RELY ON THE "THINGS WE HAVE BEEN TAUGHT ALL OUR LIVES" AND THEY DO NOT LINE UP WITH GOD'S WORD, THEY ARE JUST MYTHS AND OLD WIVES' TALES.  IT SAYS IN 1ST TIMOTHY 4:7-8 Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales; rather, train yourself to be godly. For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.  WE MUST KEEP OUR SPIRITS FULL OF GOD'S WORD SO WE WILL KNOW WHAT TO DO AND HOW TO HELP OTHERS WHEN THEY NEED IT.  WE CAN NEVER LET ANYONE DOWN.   


WE MUST ALWAYS KEEP OURSELVES SO FULL OF GOD'S WORD THAT IT WILL BE FLOWING OUT OF US SO FREELY THAT OTHER PEOPLE WILL BE ABLE TO RECEIVE IT.  JESUS SAID IN MATTHEW 11:28-29 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.  HE SAYS "LEARN OF ME" AND HOW WILL WE DO THAT IF WE DON'T READ OUR BIBLE.  HE WANTS TO TEACH US AND FELLOWSHIP WITH US.  IT IS UP TO US.  HE HAS PUT IT ALL THERE FOR US,  WHAT WILL YOU DO?



GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

"WORSHIP IS WARFARE" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-04-19

Worship Is Warfare




Mark 5:6, 'But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him.'



MATTHEW 8:28-34; MARK 5:1-17; LUKE 8:27-39



The word 'worshipped' is taken from the Greek word 'proskuneo' which means 'to prostrate oneself in homage to; do reverence to; adore.' The fact that this tormented man ran to Jesus, and not away from Him, indicates that even 'demon-possessed' people have a free will and Satan cannot control an individual without his consent.

Many battles have been fought over whether or not a Christian can be demon possessed. The Greek word for 'possessed' literally means 'to be demonized.' The Bible makes no clear distinction between degrees of demon activity (such as oppressed, depressed, possessed, etc.), but simply refers to people as being 'demonized.' All Christians are fighting against spiritual powers. If we don't put on the whole armor of God, Satan can certainly affect us or even control us.

The best way to administer deliverance is through God's Word. As a person receives the Word, it will set him free and also help guard against this situation when the demon tries to come back in with seven other spirits. In severe cases of being demonized, the individual clearly needs the help of a believer, and that's the reason why Jesus equipped all believers with authority over evil spirits.

Anointed praise and worship will also drive off evil spirits. One thing reserved for God alone is worship, and the devil has always sought that. If he can't be the one to receive worship, then he seeks to turn others away from giving true worship to the most High God. Praise and worship to the Lord is such a powerful tool against Satan. He can't stand to see God worshipped. Worship God today in spirit and in truth. The Father seeks those who will worship Him this way. He's waiting for you.


"SERVANT POWER" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-04-18

Servant Power




Mark 4:41, 'And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?'



MARK 4:35-41



When God created this physical world and all of its inhabitants, He gave mankind authority to rule and subdue His creation. Although God still owned the universe and all that was in it, He gave control of the earth to man.

When man sinned, he began to use this power against God's wishes. God did not ordain all the terrible things that have happened throughout history, and yet He did not take back man's right to dominate the earth. Instead, He became a man and took back that authority to Himself by conquest. After Jesus' resurrection, He said in Matthew 28:18, '...All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth,' and then He gave the great commission to His disciples, thereby conferring that authority upon them, also. Jesus becoming flesh was absolutely essential for gaining all power (or authority) in heaven and in earth. Jesus was a 'God-man.' As stated in 1 Timothy 3:16, He was God manifested in the flesh, which is a great mystery.

Jesus came in the power and authority of His Father to point men to the Father God. Jesus existed before His advent on this earth in the form of God and was equal with God; yet, He humbled Himself and became a servant while here on earth. He did not come to promote Himself but to give Himself as the way unto the Father.

This is radically different from the way so called 'great men' present themselves. The Roman Caesar of Jesus' day proclaimed that he was God and demanded worship. Lesser leaders ruled by exalting themselves over the people they governed. But, Jesus showed us that 'whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; and whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many' (Mt. 20:26-28).


"GETTING PREPARED" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-04-18

I KNOW WITH THE WAY THIS ECONOMY HAS BEEN, THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE HURTING.  HOUSES BEING FORECLOSED ON, CARS BEING REPOSSESSED AND CREDITORS HOUNDING PEOPLE EVERY DAY FOR THEIR MONEY.  WELL I HAVE BEEN THROUGH THAT A FEW TIMES IN MY 80 YEARS AND I CAN TELL YOU IT IS NOT FUN. THAT IS WHY I DECIDED TO WRITING ON THIS AGAIN IN HOPES IT WILL HELP SOMEONE, YOUNG OR OLD.


 


I WOULD LIKE TO WRITE THIS MOSTLY TO THE YOUNGER GENERATION OUT THERE. BE A GOOD STEWARD OF YOUR MONEY.  FIRST OF ALL TITHE. TEN PERCENT OF THE MONEY YOU MAKE IS THE LORDS.  I CANNOT FIND ANY COMMANDMENT IN THE NEW TESTAMENT THAT TELLS US TO TITHE BUT TITHING IS A BIBLICAL PRINCIPAL WHICH GOES ALL THE WAY BACK TO WHEN GOD GAVE ABRAHAM HIS GREAT VICTORY OVER THE KING OF ELAM.  HE WAS MET BY A PRIEST BY THE NAME OF MELCHIZEDEK AND ABRAHAM GAVE HIM A TENTH OF ALL THE SPOIL HE HAD TAKEN FROM THE OPPOSING ARMIES. THIS IS TOLD IN GENESIS BUT ALSO PAUL MENTIONS IT IN HEBREWS 7:1-2 WHICH SAYS "For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him; To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace; Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually."  




ALTHOUGH THERE ARE NO COMMANDMENT FOR TITHING, JESUS GIVES US A GOOD REASON TO DO SO WHEN HE SAYS IN LUKE 6:38 "Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again."  NOW YOU MIGHT CALL THIS A COMMANDMENT WITH REWARDS.  JUST REMEMBER WHAT IT SAYS IN 2ND CORINTHIANS 9:7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.  IN OTHER WORDS, DON'T GIVE JUST TO GET SOMETHING BACK.



AFTER YOU TITHE AND PAY YOUR BILLS, SAVE A LITTLE MONEY EACH MONTH.  IT CAN BE JUST $5 OR $10 BUT YOU WILL SEE THAT IT GROWS AND THE MORE IT GROWS, THE MORE IT WILL GIVE YOU THE INCENTIVE TO SAVE MORE.  TRY TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR FUTURE NOW SO YOU WON'T HAVE TO GO THROUGH ANY HARDSHIPS.  LATER IF YOU DECIDE TO INVEST YOUR MONEY, ASK HOLY SPIRIT FOR GUIDANCE.  HE WILL NEVER STEER YOU WRONG.  ALWAYS INVEST IN JESUS FIRST AND YOU WILL BE ASSURED OF A FULL RETURN.



FOR US OLDER FOLKS THAT ARE GOING THROUGH SOME TOUGH TIMES RIGHT NOW, GOD IS NOT OUT OF MIRACLES.  WE JUST HAVE TO TRUST HIM.  HE SAID ASK AND WE SHALL HAVE IT BUT WE MUST BELIEVE HE WILL DO WHAT HE SAYS.  A BIG THING TO REMEMBER IS IF SOMEONE OFFERS TO HELP YOU, DON'T THINK OF IT AS CHARITY.  GOD WORKS THROUGH PEOPLE AND IF HE HAS TOUCHED SOMEONE'S HEART TO HELP YOU, DON'T TAKE THAT BLESSING AWAY FROM THEM.  WHEN OUR NEEDS ARE MET THEN WE CAN BE A BLESSING TO SOMEONE ELSE.  JUST TURN EVERYTHING OVER TO JESUS AND EVERYTHING WILL BE ALRIGHT.



GOD BLESS YOU ALL.




"JESUS, THE SON OF GOD AND MAN" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-04-17
BEFORE I GET STARTED THIS MORNING, I WOULD LIKE TO CLEAR UP SOMETHING.  PEOPLE HAVE ASKED ME WHY I KEEP SAYING THAT JESUS IS GOD INSTEAD OF THE SON OF GOD.  HE IS BOTH.  LET'S READ JOHN 1:1-2 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.  NOW WE HAVE TO SEE WHAT THE BIBLE WAS TALKING ABOUT WHEN IT SAYS "THE WORD WAS GOD"...WHO IS THE WORD?  LET'S READ THE 14TH VERSE OF JOHN 1 "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth."  THAT COULD ONLY BE TALKING ABOUT JESUS.


NOW THAT THAT IS CLEARED UP, LET'S LOOK AT HIS PUTTING AWAY HIS DIVINITY TO BECAME A MAN. THE BIBLE TELLS OF HIM EATING AND DRINKING, FEELING PAIN AND SLEEPING...ALL THE THINGS WE HUMANS DO.  JESUS EVEN CALLED HIMSELF "THE SON OF MAN".  (LUKE 24:6-7 He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.  AGAIN, THIS CAN ONLY BE JESUS.


I LIKE THE STORY IN MARK 4 ABOUT JESUS SLEEPING.  AFTER JESUS HAD BEEN TEACHING IN PARABLES ALL DAY HE GOT INTO ONE OF THE BOATS AND SAID TO THEM, "Let us pass over unto the other side."  YOU HAVE TO REALIZE THE BOATS BACK THEN DIDN'T HAVE CABINS BUT WERE OPEN AND JESUS GOT INTO THE BOAT, LAY DOWN ON A PILLOW AND WENT TO SLEEP.  A BIG STORM AROSE AND THE BOAT STARTED FILLING WITH WATER.  JESUS, BEING A HUMAN MAN, MUST HAVE BEEN REALLY TIRED BECAUSE BEING AS WET AS HE MUST HAVE BEEN, HE WAS ASLEEP.


THE BIBLE SAYS THAT JESUS ALSO MUST SUFFER, (MATTHEW 16:21 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.)  AND IN MATTHEW 17 HE IS REFERRED TO AS THE "SON OF MAN" NOT THE "SON OF GOD", THUS PUTTING AWAY HIS DIVINITY.  (12 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them.)


I SAY ALL THIS TO REMIND YOU HOW JESUS SUFFERED FOR US.  IT IS EASY TO JUST SAY THAT JESUS DIED FOR OUR SINS AND NOT REALLY THINK ABOUT WHAT ALL THAT WENT ON.  AS BAD AS THE PAIN AND SUFFERING WAS, I AM SURE THAT THE GREATEST PAIN WAS WHEN GOD TURNED AWAY FROM HIM (MATTHEW 27:46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?)  JESUS HAD TAKEN UPON HIMSELF THE SINS OF THE WHOLE WORLD AND OUR HOLY GOD COULD NOT LOOK UPON ALL THAT SIN AND THIS SIN WAS WHAT WAS KEEPING US FROM A CLOSE RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND JESUS TOTALLY REMOVED IT.  HE PAID FOR IT ALL....IN FULL.  


THIS IS WHY WE CAN HAVE THAT CLOSE RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD BECAUSE GOD NOW SEES US THROUGH JESUS...WITHOUT SIN.  IF YOU DON'T HAVE THAT CLOSE RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, YOU CAN.  JESUS MADE IT POSSIBLE SO GO TO HIM, TALK TO HIM. LAUGH WITH HIM, CRY WITH HIM...HE IS RIGHT THERE WITH YOU ALL THE TIME. ASK HIM WHAT YOU SHOULD DO ON THE THINGS IN YOUR LIFE.  HE WILL TELL YOU BECAUSE HE WANTS THE BEST FOR YOU.  YOU WILL NEVER HAVE TO FEEL ALONE AGAIN.  HE LOVES YOU!!!


GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
