Jesus is the good news.
Times of peace and a time for war, may your peace last a 1000 years, and more.
Peace please, the man demanded. Don' t you want to know the price first the seller replied, as he looked upon the wretched human being in front of him? No, the stranger responded, just give me peace. Sorry sir, but you can't afford it. Peace is not a common commodity, but a treasure, a dainty dish reserved only for our exceptional clientele. It's an all-inclusive package, wrapped for those special moments in time. Yes sir, I know, I have been begging for peace for years, and what you tell me is true, but today it is going to change. You see, I have been told by that Gentleman at the door, to come in here and to ask for his peace. He said not to worry about the price, for it is free and already paid for. So please sir, give me his peace and put it on his account. My friend is chatting to him at the door, and is next in line. From now on we will be clientele of this kingdom, and no more bitter bombs or angry spells. And thanks to the Prince of Peace, we now have his joy also, included in this everlasting life.
War and Peace presents over 500 quotes on the beauty of world peace, inner peace, and peace with God in the midst of the ashes of war, burned bridges, and broken promises. Like a seesaw, war and peace harmoniously play together and requires just a gentle push to ensure that everyone stays happy at each end. Equally, the wind blows as a peaceful breeze or as a warlike blizzard, depending on its force. But to fight unseen forces with handmade weapons and philosophies, offers little to no hope for lovers of peace. These imbalances caused by human error and the curse of the forbidden tree, cannot be altered by science, medicine, or laws. Neither does castings spells produce good, nor does burned candles have a ripple effect on turbulent waters. Why is it then that peaceful protest so often turns into civil disruptions? Mainly, because the battles are spiritual, and of the evilness of one's own heart. But the actions of a king also contributes to the peace or wars of a nation, for God weighs his deeds whether it be good or evil in his sight. Therefore, like marching for a good cause, it is equally important for a man to humble himself, on his knees before his Creator, and to pray and ask for wisdom, justice, and forgiveness. Only then can the wounds of war begin to heal, and peace with God and neighbor return.
France bears the heart of Europe, with Paris as its international hub for business people, tourist, and lovers alike. But sadly her beauty and glamour have been buried under a strain of ill-discipline and fostered rebels, yet she remains elegant and charming. Numerous times in Paris have I witnessed her resistance against a rowdy crowd. Their gentle resistance and patience of her strong Police force in the line of duty, under constant public and media fire, are exceptional. Especially, when the use of force in self-defense would have been perfectly acceptable. Thus am I troubled by the violence against those who serve and protect, not only by the hands of violent men, but also from the public, protesters, and some in office. And more disturbingly, by the disobedient sons out for sport provoking the law, showing no admiration, respect, or fear for the king's wrath, or for his mighty men. And so, "The battle for human dignity, for equality, for respect and tolerance - these battles lives on even long after the heroes waged them." Francois Hollande
The kingdom of France is predestined by God to defend the Church of Christ our Lord. This kingdom will be great among all the kingdoms of the earth. In as much as it is loyal to its calling, it will be victorious. If it proves unfaithful in this, it will be punished harshly. Nonetheless, it will remain until the end of time. St. Remi at King Clovis’ baptism in 498
What a theater performance Steve Munsi put up for the crowd. And Joel Osteen also, people just love his stuff. They all the same. Even Jesus himself, that friend of sinners, sitting with drunkards and talking with prostitutes. The other day at someones wedding, he turned water into wine. Can you imagine? People are drowning and he walks on water? What was he thinking? He even ruined a rich man’s pigs business, when he cast out demons from a crazy man.
And whats this healing the sick on a Sabbath day I heard? We really need to get rid of this man. 30 Pieces of silver would seal the deal. We already checked out his accountant. Would be easy as pie. Come Friday look for the kiss. All is set, we not risking another adulterous fiasco. This time we will hit the nails on his hands and feet. And put him in the middle of those miserable thieves. That would make a nice front page photo. Whatever it takes we need to preserve out tradition and status quo.
Friday came and it was a bloody show, but when they lifted the king of the Jews, the light of the world went out. This was God’s foolish plan to save a dying humanity. Dead and buried the healer was laid to rest. All he did was good, but they paid him with evil currency. It was finished. But not God’s plan, written and spoken long ago when Hosea said after two days will he revive, and on the 3rd day will he arise and live again. And so it happened when Christ rose from the dead to fully restore hope for eternal life, for everyone, who would believes in his salvation name.
The devils shamed lost and defeated, but Jesus Christ won his Fathers love and attention when he said: This is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased. Do the same and praise his name, give thanks to God for his gift and grace, while you still have a chance to change your mind and destiny. Heavens refreshments are so much better than a summers day boiling without shade or shelter. Joy to the world a Savior king was born. And peace to him who will come again. Bethlehem star, my morning star, you will always shine brighter than the many lights of all the world.
Three, Two, One, the story has begun.
Two is better than One, and a Three-fold cord twist together, is power.
Three men were sentenced to death, Two thieves deserving their pay,
but One, a king they only wished away.
Betrayed by a kiss of a friend and for 30 pieces of silver,
justice was marred on that ancient day.
Three men would die a horrible death, Two for a life of crime,
but One, for humankind.
Three bodies bruised and broken, Two were caught, guilty as hell,
but One, innocent like a lamb,
Three souls departed that afternoon, Two destined for paradise,
but One slipped and fell to Hades down below.
Three men were laid to rest, Two from dust to dust,
but One from dusk to dawn, would rise again.
Three days later, Two graves still sealed and silent,
but One tombstone rolled away.
And when Jesus walked out alive, death and hell were defeated,
triumphant he was for everyone.
An empty grave and angels choir.
The good news of the gospel has eternal power.
God so loved the world, he gave his only begotten son,
whosoever believes in him, will never perish, but also live forever.
What is Lovewins 101?
Lovewins looks at relationship issues that face our society today through biblical standards set in God's Word. From the fall of innocence, back to the restoration of holiness with God. Lovewins also explores practical ways, how you can love your neighbor and your enemies, as Jesus commands. You are not your own, but you are his, bought with a price. Lovewins is full of scripture and common sense to be salt and light and is much influenced by the confrontation between the grace of Jesus towards sinners, and the righteous law of Moses found in John 8 which I believe was the transferring of covenants from law to grace.
Here we see Jesus confronted by Moses who points to the law without mercy, before Christ the Lamb of God, who was slain before the foundations of the world. But God did not send his son to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved. He taught men to obey, to love and to show mercy. Confronted with holy men of the law and an adulterous on death row, what would be his response? A woman caught in adultery. The penalty is death. Instead of executing her, they took her to Jesus to get his opinion, but in reality, she is their perfect bait to trap him. He is faced with a legal situation. The law says, but what do you say they demanded? What comes after the verdict, is what separated Jesus from everyone else. His teachings often stunned the crowd, and angered the experts in law and religion. With stones in their hands, they waited for his approval. Adultery punishable by death, PERIOD. There were no exceptions. But when he answered them, they all left with heads hanging and stones dropping. None could pull the plug, flip the switch, or pull the trigger.
Perhaps you know the story. If you understand the story, you will also appreciate the mission of God son to earth. God did not send Christ to condemn the world but to save it. For God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten son that whosoever will believe in him, will be saved. That is why Jesus thought twice before speaking. The mob wasn’t your dancing singing crowd, but they were hoping for a swift act of justice without mercy. Whoever is without sin, let him cast the first stone, Jesus said. But all have sinned, and they all have fallen short of the glory of God. Convicted of their own transgressions, they departed from the scene. There before this woman stood a perfect man. Would he be the first or would he be the last? But instead, he let her go free and said: Go, and sin no more. His kindness dropped me to the floor. His grace lifted me to a higher place. Read the whole story found in the Gospel of John 8. Now this is where you come into the story like me and everybody else when we face the Abortionist, the Adulterous, the Fornicator, the Liars. Read the Ten Commandments and see they all deserve death. God is clear on his law. But God does not want any to perish, therefore made he a way that is foolish to the wise, and to common for the proud. If only they could see what’s on the other side of that rugged cross, they too would perhaps seek the light. Repent for the kingdom of God is at hand, that all your sins may be blotted out, and not your name from the Book of Life. God is Love #Lovewins and never fails.

On Saturday afternoon, 19th May 2018, a fire burned out of control and caused total damage to the homemade shelters of a small community on the outskirts of Paris. It happened in the 12th district, and left over 50 homeless overnight. The sight was under Police guard, which prohibited any of its inhabitants from returning. It was not clear if the residents, would be able to return, but since the site has been declared unsafe, it seems highly unlikely.
No deaths have been reported, and no one was seriously injured. It is fortunate that all escaped without any injury. The cause of the fire is still unclear, and seems accidental. Regardless, the blame will rest on the inhabitants.
This small community of people are all of Romain origin. They have been granted special permission by the owners of the Commercial property about 5 months ago during the cold winter to stay on this vacant lot on the edge. The place is situated on line T3 next to Baron le Roy stop.
The community last night grabbed whatever belongings they could carry with them. From across the main road, they watched anxiously how the firefighters and Police were taking care of the situation. But the kids were running around and like little children seemed to make the world a better place even when disaster strikes. After 5 hours of tense waiting, the community finally realized that they would no longer be able to go back to get any other belongings. Safety does take preeminence over comfort in the French society who has proven themselves as a kind and generous people overall. Sadly last night the reality of loving your neighbor if they were Romain, has also been witnessed.
Families with little children, babies, and some pregnant woman were left unattended during the whole ordeal. No help came for them. I saw one man working tirelessly making calls and another. After midnight half was gone. Could not say where too. My heart wants to believe some relief came by the back door that allowed the woman with children and babies to have a shelter for the night. It also depended on the people themselves to accept help, if the wanted it. The comfort zone of culture always plays a dominant role, regardless of humanitarian aid.
Traffic was interrupted during this time until Police received the signal from the Pompiers (Firemen) that the traffic flow can start again. There were many Fire engines and dozens of Police filling this main road. Thank God it was not a terror attack or a public disaster. But you can’t help to think what this place would have looked like if it were not the despised outcasts of Europian pride. This community living peacefully next to me, now are homeless again, and their desperate situation does not stir or move the hearts of everyone. There were precious of opportunity to do good. Food for the kids. They loved the dry bread and tea. Some adults were so grateful for a small cup of coffee, but they prefer tea like the Queen. Simple people, thieves at best, but still Parisian. Their area of living was always clean, and they shared one toilet at the opposite end of the yard. Weekends were for party, but weekdays life went on as usual. Sometimes you see them, and other times they are gone, to prison or somewhere else.
What if Jesus were a Romain stranger, hungry, naked, in prison or sick? Would you turn a deaf ear and a blind eye too? There are times even I wondered. But when a tragedy like this struck in a French or Europian community, you the world of love and generosity come to life as they help their neighbor and strangers alike. Why not be the good Samaritan? He did not pass the beaten down stranger, but in his kindness reached out to bind up the wounds afflicted by robbers, and provided shelter and care for this man who no longer had a purse or a walking stick, until he would recover to find another vacant?
The hardest thing though is to keep walking in love. God warns us that in the end times the love of many will turn cold, for lawlessness will abide. People will only love themselves rather than to obey and to follow God’s way. You may have failed miserably, but by his Word, his love is restored and perfected in you like fresh bread and a cup of tea. #Lovewins when you can say: My love is patient, and my love is kind, not jealous, boastful or proud. My love is not rude or selfish, nor easily angered, and also keeps no record of wrong. My love does not take pleasure in the evil of others but finds its joy in the truth. My love endures all things, and faithfully believes without end, and in hope continues, and it will forever endure. My love wins because love never fails. My love comes from heaven above. His love is my love.
