Title: Ray on God's Love.
Post by: octoberose on March 27, 2014, 12:31:26 AM
I was reading a transcript of Ray's from 2007 and came upon the following- I guess some of you were there- Its amazing . I so would have loved to hear this in person:

But He gave His Son, now hereís the point I want to make and that is this, why did Christ have to die? Why? Why did the Father sacrifice His Son? Why did He have to do that? HE DIDNíT HAVE TO DO THAT! He didnít have to do anything, HEíS GOD! Why DID He? Because whether you recognize it now or later in life or those in the resurrection to judgment or for the rest of eternity, we are going to know it for sure. That God died for us for no other reason than to show us that HE LOVES US! He did not have to die. He said, I will do it to show them.  How can I show them that what I am putting them through has real value? What can I do? I can promise them the world, I can give them mansions and youth and joyful life. I have all that to give, but they will say, you are only giving out of your abundance, of what you have. What can I really do, that you will know that I really love you? God said, I will DIE!
But God canít die, Heís eternal, He has immortality, deathlessness. If you have immortality you canít die. So He made a Son. He made Him great. To show us how great He was, He said, let Me show you what I can do when I make a Son. Create the universe first, now become a man, and now die. 
Then they will know We love them. 
Then they will know

couldn't you just weep at such words? As I said, Amazing. Amazing God, amazing insight.

Yes, quite beautiful.  God's love is truth. 8)

1John 4:16 - "And we have come to understand and to trust the love which God hath in us. God is love; and, he that abideth in love, in God abideth, and God, in him abideth."

The second best day of my life! The day I fell in love with God.
The first best day was when my eyes were opened.
I cried both days.
I will never forget sitting in my purple lounge chair reading the site!
I will never forget 2007 Nashville conference!

Thanks for the reminder.
