This is the website home for the book, The Lamb was Sacrificed for All; Visions about Jesus and God's Love for Us.
The author has written this book with the belief that God wants to have a much closer and more intimate relationship with each and every one of His children. She believes that by not “hanging up the phone just after we’ve dialed Him” in prayer, but by listening to His “still quiet voice,” particularly after studying scripture, we can come to know a very loving and gracious Lord and Savior in Jesus Christ for our everyday lives.
To help us form such a loving relationship, she was inspired (she believes divinely inspired), to set down this series of loving vignettes, each one showing a facet of Jesus’ personality and unique story of Jesus’ life. She shows Him as the loving, caring person we know from the Gospels, in a modern, easy-to-read form. Reading these and meditating on their content will bring you to a deeper understanding of the nature of God, and it may make it easier to let Him become your friend too.
Below are excerpts of the book, to give you a better idea of the contents of this amazing work.
The Healing Water of Life
Jesus walked up to a stream, admiring the gentle babbling water as it rushed over the rocks and pebbles in the brook.
He realized that He, too, was that running water. He was Unending and Forever Refreshing, causing sharp stones within the souls of many people to be made soft. His Water rushed over people's anger, resentment, jealousy, bitterness, and unhappiness. He would melt away that anger and the unnatural sharpness in their personality by His continual flowing love for them. His love would encircle the person's soul and heal their wounds.
He, Jesus would make all men and women whole as their thoughts were grounded in that living, loving, cleansing and gently renewing Water of Life.

An Elderly Bent-over Woman
In the days that followed in Samaria, Jesus continued to search with His heart for those who might be able to be saved (helped by Him).
One one occasion, He met an elderly widow who was very bent over. She used a stick to help herself walk and was rather forlorn.
Jesus called to her, "Woman, why is it that you have come about to be bent over as this?"
She replied, "God has chosen to make me this way." Without bitterness she said this.
Jesus answered her, Woman, my God and your God is not cruel that He would want you to spend your days bent over like this."
The woman looked up at Him, questioning--suddenly with a ray of hope in her eyes. "What shall I do, sir, for I have no one to help me out of this misshape that I am in?"
Jesus spoke to her softly and tenderly, "Woman, I am He, who was sent from above and was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah to deliver people out of their miry pits. Could you believe that I am who I say that I am?"
Perceiving the immense and true love in His eyes, she replied carefully, "Yes, I believe that you are who you say that you are." She paused a moment. "Would you help me out of this misshape, Teacher?"
Jesus spoke softly again, "Yes, I am willing. And because of your belief in Me, you will be made well."
Her eyes were glued on Him...

A Young Man's Faith
On a nice warm day Jesus left the temple where he had been praying. The Pharisees and religious leaders gathered around Him,
“What do you think you were doing in there?” they questioned.
“Who do you think you are?” they jeered.
“What do you want?” they gathered around and challenged Him, for He was making quite an impression upon the people with his wise and true teachings.
“I have come to help people out of their misgivings,” He
said quietly and with peace while looking at them.
“Oh.” They blindly heard Him but did not understand.
And thinking Him to be of no importance or threat, they all
left; except one young man.
“What do you mean, you ‘have come to help people out of
their misgivings’?” the young man inquired.
“It means that I am here and available to help anyone with
any problem that they may have,” Jesus said.
“Does it mean that you can heal someone if they are sick?” the young man asked anxiously.
“I can show them The Way to be healed,” Jesus responded.
“Would you please follow me?” the young man pleaded,
On the way, he explained to Jesus that his younger sister had been very, very ill. He, her brother, had come to the temple to request a miracle of God which might be able to save her life. Upon finding Jesus, he was elated that Jesus might be that miracle for his sister....
