DO YOU KNOW JESUS? BY J.O. BONSU

Do You Know JESUS ?

Thomas knew JESUS as

A TEACHER

A FRIEND

A MENTOR

A PROPHET

A MIRACLE WORKER

But it was only after the CRUCIFIXION and RESURRECTION that he knew HIM as ” My LORD and My GOD ”

Something happens in the DEATH, BURIAL and RESURRECTION that helps you to REALLY know who JESUS is.

Have you been with JESUS, through the death, burial and resurrection?

Do you know JESUS?

THE WAVE WALKER

THE STORM CALMER

THE PEACE SPEAKER

They knew HIM As

The FEEDER OF MULTITUDE

The INTERUPTOER of the Funeral Procession

The RAISER of the dead

The FORGIVER of Sins

Do you know JESUS?

They knew HIM as the HEALER!

He Healed the LAME, The DEAF, The DUMB, The BLIND, The WITHERED, The DISEASED and The CRIPPLED

Do you know JESUS?

They knew HIM as

The DELIVERER of the demon possessed

The DELIVERER from the stones of her accusers

The DELIVERER from her hopeless situation

The DELIVERER from his child’s tormentor

Do you know JESUS?

It’s possible to know and believe that JESUS is all these things and yet not really know who JESUS is …

OH! EVERYBODY OUGHT TO KNOW WHO JESUS IS

Do you knwo Jesus the Beautiful Mountain

JESUS is the CREATOR of all things!

JESUS is the ALPHA and OMEGA!

JESUS is the BEGINNING and the ENDING!

JESUS is the FIRST and the LAST!

Do you know JESUS?

JESUS is the WAY MAKER and the CHAIN BREAKER!

JESUS is the HOSANNA and MANNA from above!

JESUS is HE who HOLDS ME and HE who MOLDS ME!

Do you know JESUS?

JESUS CHRIST is the SELF REVELATION of GOD to all of creation!

JESUS CHRIST is The WONDERFUL, The COUNSELOR, The MIGHTY GOD, The EVERLASTING FATHER and The PRINCE OF PEACE!

Do you know JESUS ?

JESUS is My SAVIOR

My REDEEMER

My FORGIVER

My KEEPER

My LORD and My GOD and my Soon coming KING!

Do you know JESUS ?

Do you know JESUS is the DEATH of REPENTANCE?

Do you know JESUS in the BURIAL of BAPTISM? Have you been buried with CHRIST, baptized in JESUS name?

Do you know JESUS in the power of the RESURRECTION, filled with the HOLY GHOST?

Do you know JESUS ? IF YOU DON’T KNOW JESUS, YOU DON’T KNOW GOD!

Half Of What You Hear By Kristyn Kusek Lewis

SYNOPSIS

Greyhill, Virginia—refuge of old money, old mansions, and old-fashioned ideas about who belongs and who doesn’t—just got a few new residents. When Bess Warner arrives in town with her husband Cole and their kids, she thinks she knows what to expect. Sure, moving to Cole’s small hometown means she’ll have to live across the street from her mother-in-law, and yes, there’s going to be a lot to learn as they take over Cole’s family’s inn-keeping business, but Bess believes it will be the perfect escape from Washington. She needs it to be. After losing her White House job under a cloud of scandal, she hardly knows who she is anymore.

But Bess quickly discovers that fitting in is easier said than done. Instead of the simpler life she’d banked on, she finds herself preoccupied by barbed questions from gossipy locals and her own worries over how her twins are acclimating at the town’s elite private school. When the opportunity to write an article for the Washington Post’s lifestyle supplement falls into Bess’s lap, she thinks it might finally be her opportunity to find her footing here…even if the subject of the piece is Greyhill’s most notorious resident.

Susannah “Cricket” Lane, fruit of the town’s deepest-rooted family tree, is a special sort of outsider, having just returned to Greyhill from New York after a decades-long hiatus. The long absence has always been the subject of suspicion, not that the eccentric Susannah cares what anyone thinks; as a matter of fact, she seems bent on antagonizing as many people as possible. But is Susannah being sincere with Bess—or is she using their strangely intense interview sessions for her to further an agenda that includes peeling back the layers of Greyhill’s darkest secrets?

As Bess discovers unsettling truths about Susannah and Greyhill at large, ones that bring her into the secrets of prior generations, she begins to learn how difficult it is to start over in a town that runs on talk, and that sometimes, the best way to find yourself is to uncover what everyone around you is hiding….

Answer : Psalm 119

Question : Which chapter is in the centre of the Bible?

Which is Psalm 118:8 ” It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man ” Amen
