ministry has permitted Carlene and I to travel to many places in this world. We
saw the Giant Red Wood Forest in California.! Roads were built through them and
stores built in them. Awesome! We viewed, hiked, and stayed overnight in the
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 Philippines where 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!
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 355 feet 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 not Niagara, 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 falls from 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).
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.
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 season
would 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?
