There is a Name I love to hear, I love to sing its worth; It sounds like music in my ear,
The sweetest Name on earth. Oh, how I love Jesus, Oh, how I love Jesus, Oh, how I love Jesus,
Because He first loved me!
If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him,
and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
Americans, and the world take far to much thought that God loves everyone. It's not true. Read above: IF A MAN LOVE ME, HE WILL KEEP MY WORDS.
Years ago we lived close to the sweetest and most wonderful couple a neighbor could ever have. We went to the same church, dined out, or set in the park and talked. The wife was a minister and the husband directed music in the church for many years. The husband told me he never read the Bible. He stated his worship service was listening to the Bill Gaither Trio on television.
Jesus came to earth for one thing, and one thing only! He brought the word of God from the Father.
HEADS UP! NO WORD OF GOD! NO SALVATION!
It does not matter who you are, where you live, rather you go to church, listen to the preacher, or not. What matters is The Holy Word of God AND NOTHING ELSE ON EARTH!
We highly suggest King James Version (KJV) and nothing else.
Oh, how I love Jesus is a very beautiful piece of music but only a few realize it does absolutely nothing for the soul and far, far to much for the flesh as the flesh must be destroyed. John 3:5-7, Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
Because He first loved me!
I reiterate: If a man love me he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. The love of God follows many, many, many years of suffering with Christ before God will accept anyone. God is the acceptor, not man. The term ACCEPT JESUS AS YOUR PERSONAL SAVIOR was written on the walls of hell. God accepts a soul once they are sanctified and delivered by the Schoolmaster. It's Biblical. Because He first loved me is ungodly, and unbiblical. The worldly churches today feast on the flesh, all the while the unholy masses are fastly being lead directly into to hell.
Music, to a point, may be OK! However, its a dangerous world we live on and God will soon END TIME! Feeding the flesh is going the wrong way. You must give up your life to gain life ... it's Scripture.
Romans 8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
