My butterfly wings.

Posted by appolus on July 15, 2017

There is something about the butterfly
That once was tethered to earth
Suddenly released from its shackles
To fly in the heavens and serve

No longer bound by its original state
Gazing at the sky and having to wait
Now to fly in the heavens without limit
Ever closer to God with each passing minute

I too was bound by earthly limitations
No spiritual thoughts nor heavenly expectations
Just trudging along and playing the game
Knowing that yesterday, today and tomorrow’d be the same

I could not see beyond my earthly horizon
Nothing in my life that was even surprising
I knew all too well of my limitations
I was shackled and bolted to my earthly foundations

Then along came my King and set my soul free
He gave me my wings and eyes that could see
And a heart that knew I was no longer bound
So I flapped my wings and my feet left the ground

And now I soar in the heavens above
Lifted higher and higher in the updrafts of Love
No longer mindful of my earthly things
Just praising my Lord for my butterfly wings.

Who Jesus is.

Posted by appolus on July 15, 2017

John 1:4 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

All the sins of the world would be laid upon Him. And in the darkest moment of history, one that cannot be imagined, the Father turned His head and looked away. The full horror of hell, now visited upon the one who was one with the Father, and He would suffer our punishment in our place. And in the most agonizing cry ever uttered, Jesus cried out, “My God, My God, why has thou forsaken me.” Only when one comes before God for judgment, and then cast away from His presence, will that one even begin to imagine the horror Jesus suffered for each and every one of us.

The Character of Jesus is higher than the highest heavens. His love and compassion and mercy and obedience are beyond what our feeble minds can comprehend. And since we can only compare with what we know, we can say with full assurance, and still fall pitifully short, that our Saviors love would render the deepest ocean to but a single tear from the Masters eye. The sun that blazes brilliantly in the sky, but a spark compared to our Lords burning passion. The universe and all others combined, smaller than the smallest chamber of His heart.

This is the God we serve; this is the Jesus of the Gospels; this is Jesus, God amongst us: He is the Bread of Life, The True vine, the Good shepherd, the Light of the World, He is the way, the Truth and the Life, The Gate for the sheep, Yahweh, He is our Victorious Champion, He is Master and Lord, King of Kings and Lord of Lords, He is the Resurrection and the Life, the Lamb of God, He is worthy to be praised, the Hope of mankind, He is every breath that I take, Mighty councilor, the Almighty, The Christ, My Savior, The Anointed One, The Prince of Peace, The Alpha and the Omega, The Beginning and the End.

He is the Author and the Finisher of our faith, the Messiah, The Potter, The Comforter, The Conqueror, Creator, Ancient of Days, The Living Water, Majestic, Omnipotent, The King Eternal, He is the Everlasting Father, The Exalted One, He is faithful and True, A Father to the fatherless, this Fire that burns within, He is my Rock and my Fortress, The Foundation of the world, The Fountain of Life, The God that Healeth thee, He is Higher than the highest heavens, Incorruptible, Infallible, My Keeper, The Lion of Judah, My Righteousness, My Strength, Merciful, He is the mighty One of Israel. He is Perfect…………….He is the Lord my God and He is one God. I shall love the Lord my God with all of heart. I shall praise the Lord my God with all of my soul………….Let Jesus be praised! He is all these things and so much more. But most importantly, He is alive!
