BREAKOUT POSITIVE THOUGHTS 99 (Less is Greater, Greater is less ).

Jesus invites everyone to the table.

It is never too late to be found by God.

He is the God who leaves the ninety nine and goes after the one.

He is the One that humbly has no prideful thought following being rejected, shamed or ignored by that one but who has the compassion and love only in His heart to keep seeking and watching and caring for the one.

He is the one who has only rejoicing and partying on His mind when He finds the one who is returned to the flock.

The past is left behind the future with the lost one found is to be celebrated with great rejoicing.

True forgiveness no anger just love.

Jesus knew each one by name.

It did not matter from what background, what their temperament, predisposition, strength or weakness, their failures or misdemeanours.

His compassion broke every barrier, every wall.

There were crowds surrounding Him much of the time but His eyes did not rest on the masses with prideful personal gratification.

His eyes lingered on the one.

Saw the one.

Stopped for the one.

Knew that one in front of Him by name.

His example and that of the loving Father could be our starting point too.

We too can start with the one who is right in front of us.

Loving them enough to ask their name and get over the personal discomfort or reserve. Go to real people in front of us with real names.

Care enough to seek them across the table, across the room, across the street, next door in the work place along the way and know their name.

Know that it is not about me but about Christ.

He wants to co partner with us and seek out the one.

He invites everyone to the banquet.

Everyone needs to know they are invited, non are disqualified.

He pulls out the seat right next to His just for you.

You are the one He has been looking for and is rejoicing when you have been found and have said Yes to His invitation to come.

The illustration shows where Heaven meets earth. Where the Trinity of Love has its kingdom.Where there is light and no darkness Where There is a great banquet and party in heaven for all the silhouetted children of God from every race.

Where all are endlessly praising and worshipping the Lord.

The three scriptures that come to mind:

“Jesus continued, “In the same way, there will be a glorious celebration in heaven over the rescue of one lost sinner who repents, comes back home, and returns to the fold—more so than for all the righteous people who never strayed away.””‭‭Luke‬ ‭15:7‬ ‭TPT‬‬

‘Come and celebrate with me! I had lost my precious silver coin, but now I’ve found it.’ That’s the way God responds every time one lost sinner repents and turns to him. He says to all his angels, ‘Let’s have a joyous celebration, for that one who was lost I have found!’ ‭‭Luke‬ ‭15:9-10‬ ‭TPT‬‬

“Let’s prepare a great feast and celebrate. For this beloved son of mine was once dead, but now he’s alive again. Once he was lost, but now he is found!’ And everyone celebrated with overflowing joy.”‭‭Luke‬ ‭15:23-24‬ ‭TPT‬‬

  1. Just read yesterday’s blog, number 99, and the 99 who were safe. The picture had me again, but I love the interpretation. When I looked again it was fascinating. The Glory and beauty of Heaven in all its wonderful colour and splendour, but on earth there is a darkness, things are not what they seem, is it a tree, a man, a hand, it’s such a true reflection of our life and surroundings today, confusion! Yet when you look more into the picture there is light, a reflection from above, touching those who lift up there hands towards an unseen Saviour, a very small taste of what is in store for us.
    Thank you Jan
