Where is Jesus Today? by Ellen Jean Barrier
We live in a modern-day time of advanced technology. In this generation of people we have divisiveness. Crime and wars, along with diseases and sicknesses exist. Homeless, starvation and the lack of an adequate income, and no financial aide still exist in many places.
The storms of life and physical storms, along with disasters plaque our world; leaving many people searching for answers: Why, do God allow these things to happen? and Where is Jesus?
History has taught us that these things have never left Earth. The purpose for which Jesus came to Earth was to give us hope and offer us a better life of peace with God. He gave us the understanding that the poor would always exist upon Earth. His work consisted of educating people about the power of God, healing those with diseases and sicknesses, feeding the hungry, spreading Joy and Peace and so many others things that made him God within the body of a man.
Today, Jesus lives in the Hearts and Souls of those who continues his work.
Where is Jesus Today?
Jesus is in shelters providing a place to live for those who are homeless.
Jesus is working in places to provide food for the hungry.
Jesus is in medical facilities providing health care for those who are sick.
Jesus is in the firemen battling the fires to save lives.
Jesus is in the police officers who have dedicated their lives to protect others.
Jesus in in the teachers who provide educational skills and teach self-confidence and respect to their students.
Jesus is in the streets, listening to those who tells him about their pain and suffering and all their troubles: He let them know that they are not alone. He offers to them his Love and Peace.
Jesus lives in the Soul of the Spiritual Leader that follows in his footsteps to serve all people. It is a calling, and not a choice.

My Personal Relationship with God
In my own personal relationship with God, I have achieved many things and accomplished many goals. He has had a profound positive effect in my life from my preteen years to this present day. God has guided my decisions and intervened in my judgments to make the right decisions. Through prayers and patience, he has increased my wisdom.
The person who find their place in God, receive from him blessings in every aspect of their life as King David who wrote Psalm 1, and other writers along with many others have testified.
Psalm (chapter 1: 1-3)
Blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel of the
ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the
seat of the scornful.
But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law does
he meditate day and night.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,
that brings forth his fruit in his season;
his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he does shall prosper.

Why is Jesus Christ Called the Sacrificial Offering for Sins?
Sins cannot be destroyed without destroying the entire human race.
What is Sin?
Sin is unrighteous behavior committed in defiance against the laws of God.
Wrongful acts committed against others angers God. This behavior is called sins.
God Requires Blood to Pay for Sins
There were people who once sacrificed animals to pay for their sins, but continued to defy the laws of God.
Because of their behavior, God refused to accept their sacrificial offerings. And wanted instead, one righteous man to die for the sins of the human race or he would destroy all human life. There was no man who had never sinned. The only hope, for the human race existing, was Jesus Christ the Son of God.
He is the mediator between God and Man. It is his blood and body that was sacrificed to pay for sins to give all humans another chance with God since the creation of Adam and Eve, to save man from eternal death.
Source of Scriptures:
1 Timothy 2:5,6 states, “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.”
John 3:16 states, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

The Suffering Savior@ http://ellen-lyricsmusicpoems.blogspot.com/2014/04/the-suffering-savior.html
At 5:00 a.m., I was awakened by a horrible storm. Tornadoes were said to be wrapped in rain and air traffic was halted. People were reportedly stranded in airports. The streets and highways were not suitable for traffic, according to a weather report.
My plans for my trip would take a miracle for me to get to my destination.
This trip is one of importance; it is our annual extravaganza. I am the sponsor and speaker. This is a 4 day event of fun and excitement: Fashion & Talent show, Musical, Items for sale, door prizes, Games, and lots of food and drinks.
Today is Thursday. My plans were to leave at 5:00 a. m. I have several vans packed with equipment and other things needed for this event that is scheduled in the great state of Texas! My family is asking, “Shall we start unpacking?” They believe it is hopeless. “The storms are not going to allow us to travel.”
I am not ready to give up. So, my decision was to wait until 8:00 a. m., and see if it is possible for us to leave. While we are waiting I am praying for a miracle. The rain stopped completely at 9:00 a.m., the weather report informed of scattered thundershowers ahead.
We left Kansas at 10:00 a.m. There were some lightning and thunderstorms along our journey. We arrived in Texas in the very late evening; thankful to God for a safe trip, a nice hotel and good Texas food to eat before retiring for the night, and looking forward to a great event with family and friends, and meeting lots of new people and old friends.
My Speech: The Storms of Life
On the first night of this event, I opened with a prayer and testimony. Everyone has a story to tell. I want to hear their stories. Many of their stories were very sad ones. My purpose is to listen, and to determine how best I can help each person. After listening to their stories, I chose to speak about The Storms of Life.
Storms will come and there is nothing we can do to prevent them. However, we can pray and patiently wait for God to get us safely through the storms. Just as the weather related storms cause disasters and harm and will halt our plans. So does the things that occur in our lives; such things as sickness, accidents, loss of financial income, divorce, problems in relationships, family problems and other reasons for unhappiness. We have a choice; give up or endure.
Hope comes from prayer. It gives us strength to endure and to persevere.
“He gives power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increase strength.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up
With wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
Isaiah 40: 29-31 (King James Bible)
