The "Falls" of Forgiveness


My missionary ministry has permitted Carlene and I to travel to many places in this world. Wesaw the Giant Red Wood Forest in California.! Roads were built through them and stores built in them. Awesome!We viewed, hiked, and stayed overnight inthe Grand Canyon. Strenuous! We also stayed a week with the Havasohi Indians who live down in another area of the Canyon. Supplies were daily brought in by mules, and a helicopter came once a week. Unusual! We went to the Philippineswhere over 600 deaf came to five weeks of free deaf camps. Spiritual!We were invited to China to advise in the education of their Deaf children. Unbelievable!But one of the most unforgettable sights was Niagara Falls. I asked others to leave as I viewed and also listened to the roar of the Falls. I felt the presence of the Lord and said, “Look what God has done.” Unforgettable!

Niagara Falls is on the border of the United States and Canada, plunges 160 feet into a thundering, surging river. At the brink, 379,000 tons of water a minute rush over the edge. Niagara, however, is not the largest waterfall in the world. Victoria Falls in Africa is 355feet high. Victoria is twice as high and twice as wide as Niagara. But there is another waterfall which dwarfs Niagara and Victoria. Angel Falls in Venezuela, drops 3,212 feet and is about 20 times higher than Niagara! But Angel Falls is not the greatest falls! The greatest “falls” is notNiagara, Victoria or Angel Falls but the greatest falls is at Golgotha. “And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha (Calvary)…they crucified him” (Matt. 27:33-35). There is a crimson river that fallsfrom the cross of Calvary that is greater than all other “falls.” Why? Because the blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God,falls and flows from Calvary with power to take away”your sin. John said, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace (Eph. 1:7). On Calvary Jesus was the last sacrifice for sin. “But this man (Jesus), after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God… there is no more offering for sin” (Heb.10:10;18). A song says, “What can wash away my sins?” The answer, “Nothing but the blood of Jesus.” At Calvary the ground is always level and everyone is equal. Kings, queens, beggars, all people groups, old and young are all the same to the Lord. It does not matter what you have done or who you are. You are invited to Calvary where you can find peace in your heart. Millions have shed their blood, but not one sin forgiven. Jesus Christ shed His blood, and millions have been saved. Thousands have died on crosses, and not one person was saved. But One died and millions have been saved. Jesus died as your sacrifice, was buried as your substitute and He arose as your Saviour! No one can go to Heaven without Christ – No one! (John 14:6). You may have traveled far in this world, but the most memorial place you will ever visit is Calvary. I have been to Calvary and while there I also made my reservation to Heaven. Thank God I have been to Calvary! Have you been to Calvary?Think about it! This Easter seasonwould be a good time for you to finally decide you need to go to Calvary. You have thought about it – so do it! Though millions have come, there is still room for one! There is room at the cross for you. After you visit Calvary you will be eternally glad you did. You will leave saying, “Unregrettable!” Have you been to Calvary? He is Risen – He is Risen Indeed!
