If You Only Knew – God, The Merciful One

April 30, 2022

Mercy is defined as compassion or forgiveness shown towards someone whom it is within one’s power to punish or harm. Oh, how merciful, our God has been to me. If I only knew God, the merciful one. I am brother Aderson, and this is my story . . .

After my graduation in 2005, I started working for a Technical Oil Company (I was in my early 20’s). I had plans of getting a house, buying a car, and getting married at the age of 28.

I was living a good life, partying a lot, and going to church when I felt like it. At that time I was baptized but never went to confession.

I used to think that my sins would disappear after I stayed a month away from God. Yes, I was that bad. I would get intimate with a girl and after some months go to communion. I did not understand the gravity of my sin. Now I know I was defiling the Eucharist—and it is a sacrilege.

So, at that time, I was working offshore, staying isolated for days and even months and the first thing you do when you are onshore is party and women. I did not care that much about church — my priority was to go out.

Anytime I was with a girl doing something that displeased the Lord I would have a check in my spirit, but I would dismiss it… see guys, God, in His mercy, never gave up on me. He always drew my attention… One day after I spent time with my girlfriend, I had flu for almost one month. I was warned before, but I did not pay attention. This same year I also lost my Job… man I was blind, I could not see the signs.

After losing my job, I started looking for another one, I applied for different companies—they had me interviewed, and so on but I never got the job. Today I know that it was God ́s hand in all these failures — if I can call them failures…. To me it was grace.

After two years I started working in a small company, and I was already 28 years of age. I did not have a house or a wife, but I had a small car, which I sold afterward.

As I started working, I started dating a girl that was not for me. I was blind and in love. I ignored all the signs, and worst, I was heading towards hell because of fornication. It is not that I was enjoying what I was doing, I did not. But I was so attracted to this Girl that she was my god…. Thank you, Jesus, for your mercy… One day, a week after spending a night in a hotel with this girl, God came to my rescue. I did nothing to deserve it, I did not confess my sin, I did nothing. But because He is so merciful, He sent his sweet Blessed Mother to me, and Holy Spirit convicted me of all my sins. Guys, I deserved punishment, because I was offending God repeatedly, but he did not take into account all my sins. He looked at me—his lost child—and he rescued me….

How many times [do] we run away from God because of our sins, failures. If we only knew how merciful He is, we would run to him and not from him. How many of us shy away from him, trusting more in our misery and forgetting about His mercy…? How many people take their life because they see no hope, no solution to their problems? I was rescued without any merit, only because He is merciful…

From Jesus With Love

My Name Is Mary Elisha I started this blog 6 years ago on my journey walking with Jesus and never knew all that he had in store for me. It has been a journey of tears, trust and confidence in him. Knowing that He is my loving spouse and he wouldn't lead me astray however he has given many suprises along the way! lol Upon fully surrendering my life to Jesus, he has completely turn my world right side up. Filled me with his spirit and showed himself in supernatural ways. He has completely left me in awe leaving me with the thought.....(as most Holy Spirit filled followers of Christ also say) why didn't I surrender 15 years ago! lol. When I started this blog I was a 30 years old zealous for the Lord and desiring to make his love known because it tranformed my life. However, I didn't know the way and the road in which he would take me. It is the way of the cross, the way of holiness and the way of love. Living a life seperated from the world and compltely concecrated to him. I no longer belong to myself, but to him as he has led me to a life of hiddeness and deep intimacy I didn't know was so avalialble for all who would make their lives, their hearts his home. He has given me a new name, a renewed purpose and a heavenly family who is so very present and so real to me. Saints who cheer me on, give me council and pray for me everyday to ensure I do the Lords will and the greatest gift of all He has led me to his Mother! Who has always been My Mother just never knew it. I love Mother Mary, she is my heart, my friend and confidant and continues to prepare me to a worthy bride to her son, Jesus. It is she, who has handpicked me for this mission and to run the community "City of God: Sacred Heart Refuge" in Ghana, West Africa. This is her mission and her ministry as a gift to Jesus and I just get to be her handmaiden. Heartdwellers Ghana is an extention of Heartdwellers ministry by Mother Clare and Father Ezekiel from Still Small Voice Channel. Jesus has taught us about divine intimacy with him. As we dwell in his heart, He and the Father come to make their home within us. (John Where Jesus is all of heaven is as well because the kingom of God is within. So here may you come to get fresh manna from Jesus and any ther saints who may want to give us council, encouragment and exhortation that we may finish this race of faith and run to win the prize. To be a bride spotless, blameless adorened with purity, carying the fire of charity and zeal for our fathers glory. That we maybe ready for him when He comes back for us. Our Lord, Jesus Christ is amazing the intimate you become with him the more in awe he leaves you. I hope this blog draws you nearer to our Lord and you began to open the ears and the eyes of your heart to all that he has to say to you and show you. All of these messages are from Jesus with love...to you. May you be blessed by his words of life. God bless you!
