"In the blink of an eye"

I watch a lot of end time christian movies even though they aren't biblically accurate but fun to watch. My favorite is "Tribulation" Then I saw "In a blink of an eye" very cool movie and it was biblical enough that it could actually happen. It was "Groundhog's Day" meets Jesus, very cool. The movie was really good and the lead actor in the end quoted one of his other movies that he did and says to his Captain "don't take the mark" referring to his other movie "Six" - "plunk in the bucket" hehehe. 

"In a blink of an eye"
Mercy Me

You put me here for a reason
You have a mission for me
You knew my name and You called it
Long before I learned to breathe

Sometimes I feel disappointed
By the way I spend my time
How can I further Your kingdom
When I'm so wrapped up in mine?

In a blink of an eye that is when
I'll be closer to you than I've ever been
Time will fly, but until then
I'll embrace every moment I'm given
There's a reason I'm alive for a blink of an eye

And though I'm living a good life
Can my life be something great?
I have to answer the question
Before it's too late

Cuz in a blink of an eye that is when
I'll be closer to You than I've ever been
Time will fly, but until then
I'll embrace every moment I'm given
There's a reason I'm alive for a blink of an eye

If I give the very best of me
That becomes my legacy
So tell me what am I waiting for?
What am I waiting for?

In a blink of an eye that is when
I'll be closer to You than I've ever been
Time will fly, but until then
I'll embrace every moment I'm given

In a blink of an eye that is when
I'll be closer to You than I've ever been
Time will fly, but until then
I'll embrace every moment I'm given

There's a reason I'm alive 
for a blink of an eye

"My Love"

What do people think about becoming one in a marriage? Paul in Ephesians 5, talks about a husband & wife loving one another. Verse 30 says "because we are members of His body." and then in verse 31 he says, the two shall become one & verse 32 "this mystery is great;" with a semi colon. Paul is talking about Christ and the church in a physical sense in the verses before and after verses 31& 32 but then adds the spiritual aspect to the marriage in verses 31 & 32.
We are the Bride of Christ no matter if we believe it or not. When we accept Yeshua into our life, we become one with Him. That is what Paul was referring to but with Abba, there is always a reference that He will use to show what He means in the physical. Yeshua being the sacrificial lamb, Abraham & Isaac, etc.. When a women's hymen is broken and blood is spilled, a covenant is made in the physical but in the spiritual they become one. Paul says this mystery is great.
When we marry, do we really treat our spouse as if they are one with us? One of my favorite bible teaching is “Ani Lo" "I am His" by Pastor Jonathan Cahn. It is about us "His Bride" & who we are in Yeshua. In part of the message he says "If you have a marriage of two people, who are two masters, and they want to be served by the other, you got a bad marriage. If you have a marriage of two servants, who are there to serve the other, you got a wonderful marriage. Each puts the other first, you have a wonderful marriage."
We can't be alone in a marriage we must be one with them. Each serving the other. When the object of your affections becomes the object of your satisfaction, then it becomes all about you and your needs. Abba wants us to become one with our spouse seeking what the other needs. To become one, to create a life out of that love. If we understand this, we can become a model for people to see and then they can understand the relationship we have between Yeshua and His Bride.
John 17:25-26 “O righteous Father, although the world has not known You, yet I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me; and I have made Your name known to them, and will make it known, so that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”

"Arise, My Love"
Michael Card

Arise, my love, my lovely one come,
Winter is past and the rains are gone.
The flowers appear, it's the season of song,
My beautiful one, arise and come with me.
Who is it that appears like the dawn?
As fair as the moon, as bright as the sun?
Show me your face, let me hear your voice.
My beautiful one, arise and come with me.
Set me like a seal on your heart,
For love is unyielding as the grave.
The flash of it is a jealous fire,
No flood can quench,
For love is as strong as death.
Arise my love and come with me
Before the dawn breaks and the shadows flee.
You ravished my heart with just one glance
My beautiful one, arise and come with me.
Set me like a seal on your heart,
For love is unyielding as the grave.
The flash of it is a jealous fire,
No flood can quench,
For love is as strong as death.
Do not arouse or awaken love
Until it so desires.
Arise, my love, my lovely one come,
The Winter is past and the rains are gone.
The flowers appear, it's season of song,
My beautiful one, arise and come with me.
I am my love's, my beloved is mine.
Arise and come with me

"He's Alive!"

"He's alive" song is another one of my top ten favorite songs when I was a kid. The singer/writer Don Francisco sang it as thru the eyes of Peter after he denies Yeshua. Another one like it is "Touch of the master's hand" by Wayne Watson. The older versions of their songs are the best.
Anyway, one day my mom was creating and drawing scripture on some index cards. There was one that I loved the most, it said " I AM..... more than enough!" In black marker and in color markers around it she wrote the
names of Yeshua; Mighty God, Prince of Peace, counselor, etc.. When I picked it up reading it, I could feel Yeshua saying "I'm Alive!"I told my mom you forgot he's alive. She said your right. She took the card back and wrote "ALIVE!" In yellow marker underlined with black marker. It was cool. To this day I never forgot that and made one into a banner that hangs on my bedroom wall. Sometimes we forget that Abba is there waiting to help us. He is not distant, aloof, or against us. He wants to be part of our lives, intimate and personal like a true father would. Yeshua died & rose from the grave taking our punishment and now we can be with Abba once again in fellowship. Yeshua is alive! ready to help & teach us, giving us the Holy Spirit to guide us and hear Him. He wants us to believe He is there to help. He's Alive!
Philippians 4:19 "And my God shall supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus."

 

He's Alive
The gates and doors were barred
And all the windows fastened down
I spent the night in sleeplessness
And rose at every sound
Half in hopeless sorrow
And half in fear of the day
Would find the soldiers breakin' through to drag us all away

And just before the sunrise
I heard something at the wall
The gate began to rattle
And the voice began to call
hurried to the window
Looked down into the street
Expecting swords and torches
And the sound of soldiers' feet
there was no one there but Mary
So I went down to let her in
John stood there beside me
As she told us where she'd been
She said they moved Him in the night
And none of us knows where
The stone's been rolled away
And now His body isn't there

We both ran toward the garden
Then John ran on ahead
We found the stone and empty tomb
Just the way that Mary said
But the winding sheet they wrapped Him in Was just an empty shell
And how or where they'd taken Him
Was more than I could tell

Well something strange had happened there Just what did not know
John believed a miracle
But I just turned to go
Circumstance and speculation
Couldn't lift me very high
'Cause I'd seen them crucify him
Then I saw him die

Back inside the house again
The guilt and anguish came
Everything I'd promised Him
Just added to my shame
When at last it came to choices
I denied I knew His name
And even if He was alive
It wouldn't be the same

Then suddenly the air was filled
With strange and sweet perfume
Light that came from everywhere
Drove shadows from the room
Jesus stood before me
With his arms held open wide
I fell down on my knees
And just clung to Him and cried

He raised me to my feet
And as I looked into His eyes
love was shining out from Him
Like sunlight from the skies
Guilt in my confusion
Dissappeared in sweet release
And every fear I'd ever had
Just melted into peace

He's alive, He's alive
He's alive and I'm forgiven
Heaven's gates are open wide
He's alive, He's alive
He's alive and I'm forgiven
Heaven's gates are open wide
He's alive, He's alive
He's alive and I'm forgiven
Heaven's gates are open wide
He's alive, He's alive,
He's alive
