Virus does not kill with the right antidote
There was a young lawyer
named Matlock. He was a prosecutor in a city where law & order was very
important. He had studied L.A Law most of his career. Problems arose when he
came to New York City. The N.Y.P.D Blue had to deal with so much crime in their
area. The prosecutionís office had loads of criminal cases to prosecute. The
prosecution successfully won many of their cases because cops known as New York
Undercover made many legal arrests and sent the alleged to court. The reason
most cases were won was because of the evidence presented that was hard to
Many of us in our lives have
committed crimes that we believe no one knows about. As long as it is hidden
under the rug, we may think, everything will be okay. There is a problem here
though because for a crime to exist, you need a mens rea and an actus
rea. In other words, we need a criminal intent and a criminal act.
What we face now is nothing
compared to Wells book 1984. If you thought privacy was invaded then, think
again. You are living in a world where your every move is being recorded. Every
step you take, every word you say, is being recorded. This has been happening
even before that book came out. Hence there are tons of tapes to prove that we
are guilty of crimes. A crime is a crime, whether it is a small crime or a big
crime. There is a final verdict. It is GUILTY as CHARGED.
If we think our good works
will outweigh the crimes we have done, we are totally wrong. A good deed cannot
erase a crime thatís been committed. You may be thinking what a harsh society
to live in. Well in a way, you are right. The crimes we have been charged with
are disobedience, sexual immorality, idolatory, stealing, lawlessness and so on.
The evidence is presented
based on the recording of our lives every move. We are arrested because of what
we have been charged with.
Can we say our Constitutional
rights were violated in any way? No we cannot! For every arrest is made justly
and fairly with pure justice in mind.
Can we say to ourselves, our
money will buy us the best lawyers to argue our case and win? No we cannot! No
amount of affluence or influence will refute the evidence and make us innocent.
What happened to innocent
till proven guilty? It does not exist because of the tapes real evidence,
showing the crimes being committed. Why then even go to court, you may ask?
Letís find out what happens
in court now. This is a non-jury trial with only a prosecution,
defense-attorney, and the Judge. There are no witnesses except the tapes given
as Exhibit 1. The prosecution is so happy to see the tapes. For the prosecution
feels, it is assured a victory and we can be locked away forever being tormented
where their is weeping and gnashing of teeth.
The defense attorney is so sorrowful to see the tapes. For the
defense attorney knows, we will all be found guilty. He knows what He has to do.
The Judge has just seen the tapes. The verdict has come in: Guilty! Guilty!
Guilty! The sentence is death. We are taken into custody to be transported when
we die. The Judge tells the defense attorney, you still have time to save them.
You can make a final appeal. Itís going to cost you so much pain in the
process. The attorney decided to go with the final appeal. I cannot believe it.
Why would anyone want to save me?
But I can see so much love
and compassion in His eyes. His face is filled with sorrow knowing what has to
be done. But the attorney is willing to do it. He decided to take our place.
What!! Taking my place but why, I am guilty of the charges, not Him. But, I saw
there was no stopping Him. He was determined to take our place. He was
incarcerated and tortured because of what we had done. He was willing to go
through all this for us. By the stripes He took, he wanted to rescue us. He was
then led to the death chamber made of wood. All they needed were 3 nails and a
hammer. Ahh, the pain and the suffering were endured for all of us. Why???
Because Jesus knew, He was
the only one that could save us from Hell. Only, His cleansing Blood could wash
away our crimes and make us pure in Godís eyes. The crimes are the sins we do
in our lives. Hell is real and because of our sins we deserve it but Jesus loves
us so much that He wants us to be with Him. He has a beautiful place for you and
me known as Heaven. We can go to Heaven when we die. All we need is to be
willing to acknowledge that we are sinners, we cannot save ourselves, and there
is only one way out.
Jesus became that way for you
and me. Jesus says, ďI am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one can come to
the Father but through me.Ē (John
14:1) Jesus came back to life to save you and me. He was willing to go through
all that pain that you can be saved so that you could spend Eternity with Him.
We do not know when we will all die. None of the people who passed away on
September 11, which is almost 6 months ago, may have thought to themselves that
they would die that way tragically and horrifically. Yet, death comes with no
But it is so assuring to know
we can be in Heaven with Jesus when we die. You can be assured of your
Salvation. It is simple. Itís not complex. Call upon the name of the Lord and
you will be saved.
Acknowledge Jesus as your Lord and Personal Savior. Be
willing to let Him take your place. Ac cept what
He has done for you. He loves you so much. He will accept you as you are!!! Come
to the Lord Jesus and find rest. Confess your sins and accept Jesus into your
heart and you will be assured of your Salvation. Christ not only assures us
Salvation but a life filled with abundant joy and peace. Jesus
the Prince of Peace!!!!
Heaven and Hell are real and
Christ gives you a way to enter Heaven. The prosecution here was the Devil and
he wants nothing more than to see his way win and see you in hell. The Judge
here was Father God. God does not want you to go to hell. God loves you so much,
even though He is a Judge, that He allowed the defense attorney, Jesus to take
your place!!! May you find comfort in Christís love and give your heart to
If you want to accept Christ
into your heart, may this be your prayer:
Dear Lord Jesus, I am a sinner. I am guilty of the crimes of sin
whether they are seen as small crimes or big crimes. Sin is sin to you Lord and
there is a penalty for it. You in your holiness cannot allow sin to enter your
presence so we are condemned. Yet, you in your love have provided a way out by
giving yourself to take our place. Thank you Jesus! I am sorry for my sins and
ask you to please forgive me of my sins and cleanse me with your cleansing
blood. Make me clean again. I accept you into my heart. Please come into my
heart and make my heart your home. Please live in me Jesus and I will live for
you and serve you the rest of the days of my life. I acknowledge you as my Lord
and personal Savior believing that you had to die on the cross and come back to
life to atone for my sins. Please be my Lord and Personal Savior. Thank you
Jesus. Thank you for hearing my prayers and answering me. In Your Name I Pray
You may feel something or not but donít let feelings dictate your acceptance into the Kingdom of Heaven. You are born-again if you sincerely meant what you prayed.
