New Devotions

Jesus Stood

Hello there, my name is Ethan W. Moses, and I would like thank you for joining me here today and to welcome you to the inaugural presentation of, WhisperArt presents – Into All The World, on the NEW WhisperArt website. I would also like to thank all my friends at Agile Web Studios, for doing such a fantastic job of converting the old website, which I built myself using WebsiteBuilder, to the NEW Word Press website, with all it’s advanced capabilities and features, which you will see more of in the days and weeks ahead. May we please begin with an opening prayer. Dear heavenly Father we come into your presence today with praise and thanksgiving for your grace, faithfulness and love. I can’t help but remember dear Father, that the Bible verses you put in my heart last week, for this weeks presentation, were so truly prophetic. It makes me know even more, how your thoughts are so much higher than our thoughts, and your ways are so much higher than our ways. Because of that, it also makes me realize and trust even more, in what you said in your holy word about, knowing the plans you have for us, plans to prosper us and not to harm us, plans to give us hope and a future. You knew dear Father that the Bible verses announced last week, for this weeks presentation, would encourage me to continue, going into all the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ, and that I should be courageous and not be afraid, for you would be with me wherever I go. Dear heavenly father it is my greatest heartfelt desire, to serve you and to give others a sense of your awesome grace and majesty that consumed me, as my dear wife Pam, left this world and found herself in you’re very presence. Your presence that night dear Father caused me to voluntarily say, over and over again, Jesus Christ is Lord! Since then however dear Father, it seems that I simply cannot wrap my mind around the fact, that some do indeed reject him. Use me dear Father to be a witness to the entire world, of your awesome love for this world, that caused you to send your previous Son Jesus Christ to this world so that whoever should believe in him should not perish but have everlasting life. We pray all these things in the precious and holy name of Jesus! Amen The Bible verses I will be referencing today are: Mark 16:15 Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. And Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” I hope you don’t misunderstand what I am about to say, but I realize that I am not the best thing that ever happened to my dear wife Pam. The best thing that ever happened to my wife, was she died. I also died long ago, and so did many of you. She did not die of February 5, 2023, she died many years earlier while sitting at her best friends dining room table, who lived just across the street, when she invited Jesus into her heart. I always did think of my wife as a saint, and on February 5, 2023, at exactly 7 PM, it became official. It should be obvious to anyone, that Satan has been allowed to infiltrate every aspect of our every day lives. For many years I have had a doormat at my front door, which is meant to alert people, before they come in that, as for me and my house we shall serve the Lord! This did not deter them however. My wife, Pam, and I have always thought of our home as our sanctuary. Satan however, also even infiltrated our home through many of the health care workers, service providers, opportunists and the public media that have entered. Pam and I realized very early on, that when these type people came in and sought to take advantage of our kindness and generosity, it was nothing more than a form of persecution, and you probably know what the Bible says about those who are persecuted for Christ’ sake. In the same way it should be obvious that Satan has also infiltrated, not only government, schools, higher education, businesses, and yes, even the very sanctuaries of God, the church. I believe that it is for this reason, that the glory of God has also vacated many countries, churches and homes today throughout the world, like he did the temple at Jerusalem, as written about in the Old Testament. I further believe, that it was not COVID that has decimated so many of our churches today, but rather because many churches today are being ran like a business, that is geared only towards increasing revenues, instead of providing a true sanctuary for God’s glory. Why do I say this, you might ask? I say this because, for most of my Christian life, I have attempted to encourage and serve my fellow Christians, with very little or no success. I tried for so many years to encourage them to use the gifts, talents and abilities which God provides, for God’s purpose, but like I said, I had little or no success. Also, my wife and I noticed that over the years, with only a few exceptions, no one ever came to our house in an effort to encourage or minister to us. After my wife passed just over a week ago, I asked God why this has been the case. I think his response was, that just being in Pam‘s presence brought conviction upon them, because of the sin they hide in their hearts, so they just stayed away. This also explains the reason why most of our family and friends also abandoned us over the years. It was always us reaching out to encourage them, but they never, with very few exceptions, ever reached out to us. I think this is also what Jesus meant when he said, because of me people will hate you. But you know, Pam and I realized sometime ago, that we were not seeking the praise of man/this world, but rather the praise of God! A popular song keep coming to my mind lately entitled, I’d rather have Jesus. If you get a chance you should look it up on YouTube. But you know, Pam and I are encouragers, and it takes a great deal to get us down. Not because of our own strength, but because of the strength and courage that God provides. We are also eternal optimists, and I see signs that just like God revived me, he may also be causing revival to break out in different parts of the world. I think that one of the reasons this is happening is because of the sacrifice and prayers of many of God’s people, like my dear wife Pam. I might just add that I know a great deal about revival, because when my dear Pam, slipped through the golden gates of heaven, the Shekinah Grace of God came down and filled that ICU, and Jesus stood, and Jesus also lifted me. That was the most beautiful experience I’ve ever had in my entire life! Because of God’s awesome love and grace, it was not a time of sadness and sorrow, but rather it was a time of great gladness and joy! It is my prayer that God’s grace falls on you, and revive you, and that Jesus will lift you up! Praise the holy name of Jesus! God is good! And now the poem: Jesus Stood
My dear Pam suffered for 40 years, But never once did she ever complain. She always had a smile on her face, And quietly praised Jesus in her pain.
I tried to care for and comfort her, As I watched the MS take it’s toll. But it was Jesus who lifted us both, From the depths of that deep dark hole.
Because of God’s grace and provision. Our lives where filled with God’s grace and love. People looking in from the outside, Couldn’t understand her strength came from above.
I was with her when God called her a home, I wouldn’t bring her back if I could, She suffered long enough in this cold world, And when she crossed over the Jordan, Jesus stood.

At this time I would like to thank you for joining me here today for this inaugural presentation of, WhisperArt presents- Into All The World, on the NEW WhisperArt website. Next week I will be referencing Genesis 1:1, as we start all over at the beginning of the greatest love story ever told, for those who may not have already read, The Book. On a personal note, as I sat holding her hand, I played several songs during the last half hour of my dear wife’s life on this earth. The first song that played, and I don’t even know how it got on my phone, was “Come As You Are”, that had the words which were so comforting to me that said,, “There is no pain, sickness or sorrow on this earth, that heaven can’t heal”. I then played a random selection of the songs that I had written, and I invite you to listen now to the song, “Have Mercy”, which was the last song my dear Pam would hear while still on this earth. I wrote this song many years ago, which I thought was about my own walk upon this earth, and my future entrance into heaven. Little did I know back then when I wrote this song, that it would be the song that I would imagine my dear wife Pam singing, about her walk and her ascension into heaven. I would also like for you to know, that this song ended at exactly 7:00 PM that Sunday evening, and that is the exact time that my dear Pam passed through the golden gates into heaven. It just goes to show that Jesus always arrives, right on time. Praise the holy name of Jesus! God is good! Ethan W. Moses WhisperArt
