He's alive and I'm forgiven
« on: September 25, 2012, 02:40:17 PM »
Thanks Jabcat...  this song has ultra special meaning for me - I heard it for the first time sung at a Full Gospel Businessmen's Prayer Breakfast in the Fall of 1979.

On May 16, 1979, God delivered me of alcoholism... (7 evil spirits)

One week later after my first AA meeting, an elderly gentleman approached me and told me  "I'm glad that I was an alcoholic.  I know my sin and went to God and am forgiven.  My family and friends know only my sin; they don't know their own sin so they don't have a need to go to God and they don't know the joy of being a forgiven sinner.

Several weeks later, I attended the Full Gospel Businessmen's Prayer Breakfast... the theme "To know Him and the power of His resurrection" Phil 3:10.   The opening song was He's Alive!   Oh, the joy of being a forgiven sinner.   

Psalm 40:2-5

He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.

And He hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God:  many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.

Blessed is that man that maketh the Lord his trust, ...

Many, O Lord my God are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to usward:  they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.


Ps 103:1-5

Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless His holy name.

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies.

Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's

I just saw this.  Awesome!
Neither should there be vulgar speech, foolish talk, or coarse jesting--all of which are out of character--but rather thanksgiving.  Eph. 5:4  **  Saved 1John 3.2, Eph. 2:8, John 1:12 - Being saved 2Cor. 4:16 2Peter 3:18 - Will be saved 1Peter 1:5 Romans 8:23

Gal 5:1
Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.


HE SET ME FREE  Lillenas, 1909

My soul is filled with joy and gladness
Since Jesus came to me.
His love has banished all my sadness,
From sin I am set free.

Refrain
He set me free, He set me free,
I was blind, but hallelujah, now I see!
I shall ne'er forget the day
When He washed my sins away,
And He set , He set me free.


The Comforter divine is dwelling
Within my soul today;
His love to others I am telling
Since Jesus came to stay.


The grace of Jesus hath abounded
For all my sins I see,
Salvation walls have me surrounded
From sin I am set free

Tom's testimony reminded me of my own (onething aka anna274, goodreport, seekfirst, watch/pray)... and I just happen to have a very simple, but all inclusive hymn that expresses my ongoing joy of being a forgiven sinner (she who is forgiven much, loves much Luke 7:47)


HOW HAPPY EVERY CHILD OF GRACE  Wesley, 1759

How happy every child of grace,
Who knows his sins forgiven!
"This earth, " he cries, "is not my place,
I seek my place in heaven --
A country far from mortal sight,
Which yet by faith I see,
The land of rest, the saints' delight,
The heaven prepared for me."

O what a blessed hope is ours!
While here on earth we stay,
We more than taste the heavenly powers,
And antedate that day.
We feel the resurrection near,
Our life in Christ concealed,
And with His glorious presence here
Our earthen vessels filled.

O would He more of heaven bestow,
And let the vessels break,
And let our ransomed spirits go
To grasp the God we seek;
In rapturous awe on Him to gaze,
Who bought the sight for me;
And shout and wonder at His grace
Through all eternity.

Eph 1:7
We have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.

another song that blessed me very early this morning, as I reflected again on the "joy of being a forgiven sinner"


JOY OF FORGIVENESS  DeYoe, 1900

There is gladness in my heart today, today,
A peace I cannot tell,
For the Spirit of the Lord now dwells within,
And with my soul 'tis well.
There is gladness in my heart today,
Which peace and joy impart,
For the Spirit of the Lord has come to stay,
There's gladness in my heart.

There is comfort in my heart  today, today,
A joy that constant springs,
For the Comforter has come to keep my soul,
And love and gladness brings.
There is comfort in my heart today,
Which peace and joy impart,
For the Spirit of the Lord has come to stay,
There's comfort in my heart.

There is sunshine in my heart today, today,
A light that satisfies;
For my soul has found a home in Christ the Lord,
And to His bosom flies.
There is sunshine in my heart today,
Which peace and joy impart,
For the Spirit of the Lord has come to stay,
There's sunshine in my heart.

such joy gives me a Son-shiny smile

Thank you Sheila... how blessed we are... to be kept by our Lord

Psalm 121
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help

My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth

He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber

Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep

The Lord is thy keeper:  the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand

The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night

The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.

THE LORD SHALL PRESERVE THY GOING OUT AND THY COMING IN FROM THIS TIME FORTH, AND EVEN FOR EVERMORE.
