Amazing Grace

I'm sure you can remember that hymn...
Originally composed by John Newton, a man named John Rees added a new verse that has become part of the song for a while.... I am hooked on this new it...enjoy.....

"When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We've no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’ve first begun."

İf you want praise the creator see him rightly.He is not a born human or 3 in one .He is the only one creator of we know and don't know...The Bible was his message and the T.ora (but from humans changing it's now not the same).The Koran is his last message to all the creatins in the whole universum.The Protector for his last message is the creator himself(Allah).Hope you find it....

Strangely, i feel delighted to have your coment here Saruhan esp since i dun know you.

I also wish for the sake of being nice i could accept what you wrote but unfortunately i can't.

The Bible was His message and is still His message. Its where His message of Hope, Life and Power lies. I'd be happy to further hear from you anyway.

Yea, Friend of GOd was right at His sayings.

Adding to that, read John 1:1

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God"

The bible that we now have is the living God-breathed Words, and they are powerful in teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness. Besides that, it is also sharper than any two-edges sword and are powerful in man's lives.

In the new testament, it contains the message of grace. Where we no longer lives under law (old testament are when ppl lives under law) but under grace. We're just humans and we cannot keep all the laws. Like those days, if one fails to keep one law, it breaks ALL laws. Its like that. Law is all about curses and death as its penalty. But grace is about receiving from God. Its always blessings and just blessings. Grace means unmeritted, undeserved favour.

It is thru the same grace that we're saved. By Jesus' shed blood on the cross. It is the same grace that qualifies us to heaven and remove all God's wrath against us and removes all our sins. Not by our own work, but by God's grace we're saved.

John Newton understood the meaning of grace as he experienced it, thats when he wrote this song.
It was when he was a filthy wretch when he realises God's great love for him. Not because he deserves it but because of Jesus Christ. That's why he named it "Amazing Grace"

Oh my, yet another long entry from me. LOL. Hope this helps. You're a blessing brother! =)
