I Am...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I honour God, whenever I can. 

Today, being our Lord's Day, SONday, I normally would go to worship.  But today, like many other Sunday's in the past since I've not been well, I will not join my brothers and sisters in the Lord, for worship.

As you may be aware, I've had to limit what I do, since not being well began last September.

There are days when I literally wear myself out.  Of course, with less energy and ability to function, this happens much quicker than it used to.

Yesterday, was one of those days.  By the time evening came around, I was absolutely exhausted.  Even so, I stayed up rather late. 

You see, my daughter P, told me about a movie she rented, that she really enjoyed.  She liked it so much that she wanted to extend the movie rental, so I would have a chance to watch it.

During our discussion, I decided to 'google' the movie, more for information than for anything else.  To my surprise, the movie came up with a link to Youtube.

I told P about this.  She responded asking how many parts the movie was in.  I replied, it wasn't in parts.  In fact, the whole movie was available on Youtube, in one link.

P was as shocked as I was, I think.  In any case, I told her I would watch it, online.

It is entitled, I Am Gabriel and here's a link:

Just as I have done in the past, I won't write about the movie.  I wouldn't want to spoil it for you.  But, I hope you will decide to watch it.

While it is questionable about being Biblically correct, it was a great movie to watch.  After all, the movie storyline is fictional.

However, in my opinion, any movie that encourages people to think about God, and all His power, is a good thing. 

It's like planting those seeds for Christ.  God will water them.  And, He will open the minds of those He plans to save.

Hmmm... this brings up a subject that not everyone agrees with. 

Some people believe that all will go to heaven; that no one will go to hell, at the end of their life.  But, this is not what the Bible teaches.  And, the Bible is God's Word.  His Word is truth, because He is the great, I AM.

In the book of Romans chapter 9, we read that not all people are God's children.  We also read that He loved Jacob, yet hated Esau.

God told us in Romans 9:15, "For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion."

God tells us in various places in the Bible, that not everyone will go to heaven.  Only those, who are trusting in Jesus, and in Him, alone, for their salvation... and who do the will of God.

Today is the day of salvation.  Come to Jesus, today.  There is no other name under God, by which a man can be saved.

Until next time...
