Hi there and welcome!
What does Hephzibah stand for?
It is a name, which is mentioned twice in the bible.
The name of this blog is taken from Isaiah 62 : 4, which says:
Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for The Lord delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.
This passage was speaking to me, to my spirit and to my heart and to my soul, during a time when I was diligently and urgently seeking THE LORD and I felt directed to this passage and I felt as if HE meant me and meant to comfort me with these words and meant to reassure me that the times of severe trouble in my life would be over now and that HE had seen my sorrow and that HE had forgiven me and that HE wanted to let me know that HE had heard my prayers and appreciated all I had done to make things right with HIM and that HE wanted to point out that HE had a much brighter future for me.
I don’t know if you have had severe and deep trouble and darkness in your life?
Most of us have to go through it at some point in their lives…
This blog is not so much about what I went through (even though I will speak a little about it in order to make the solution and the remedy clear!), but much more and mainly about the solution I have found for ALL suffering of humanity – it is not a solution I have invented or thought of, I found it or “it” found me.
This “solution” / answer / remedy for each and every problem anyone could ever have in their life has always been there, is accessable to anyone and it is even completely free of charge, because it is a gift!
It is GOD OUR FATHER, THE ALMIGHTY, JESUS CHRIST, THE HOLY SPIRIT, the WORD OF GOD.
GOD can and will heal you from everything and HE can save your life and your soul – if you ask HIM and let HIM.
When I looked back on what and how HE had brought me out of a very long and very dark time in my life (and there is absolutely no doubt about who had brought me IN to this horrific, dark time and who almost killed me: the devil, the evil one, the enemy!!), I decided to share what HE showed me and what HE taught me and this is why I created this blog.
Because the snares and lies of the enemy are countless and like the bible says in 1 Peter 5:8
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
He is literally all over the world in every area of our lives and whoever is not with GOD, whoever is not saved, whoever is not a born again Christian, is in the hands of the devil, is his slave, his property – like it or not, believe it or not!
And I am not saying this because I want to convert you (I do want to convert you, but not for my sake, but for YOUR OWN sake!), I am speaking out of experience!!!
As JESUS warns us in John 10:10
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
JESUS CHRIST is our only chance!
My friend, I wish you had an inkling of an idea about how abundant, how healthy and how full a life in THE LORD was!
If only you would KNOW what will expect you once you let GOD save you and GIVE you LIFE and THE TRUTH and HEALTH and a LOVE you have never known before!
There is nothing like the PEACE OF CHRIST.
It can fill your entire existence.
It can FREE you from all the demands of society and obligations and costs and expenses and masks and pressures and expectations… it is THE most desirable gift on earth!
But it is at the same time not wordly.
It is nothing you could see or show off, even though others WILL see it and envy you for it- at least after a while and if they are wise… but it doesn’t bring the satisfaction which you are promised from a material item, it will REALLY satisfy you, deep within!
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
It is what I want for YOU, my friend!
I hope and pray that you will be touched and inspired through my story here to seek and find GOD.
And that HE will delight in YOU!
And do for YOU what HE did for me – and SO much more! That HE will HEAL you and BLESS you and give you PEACE and show you THE TRUTH and that HE will keep you and shine HIS face upon you.
In JESUS’ name I pray!
