“Lord, send a severe wind storm today, let it rain on “their” parade, ruin their festivities with bad stormy weather” , and so I prayed for most of the day yesterday. What was on my mind at the time?, the Sydney gay and lesbian Mardi Gras.
But the Lord did not send a storm, instead the words “Jesus Saves” were seen across a blue Sydney Sky yesterday. Today, we have the media letting everyone know that “Jesus Saves” just in case anyone missed it yesterday.😊
Jesus Saves’ Written in Gigantic Letters over Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.
IN THE NEWS:
“According to Nine News, the skywriting first appeared around 5ish when people started to spot it. But as it appears, the sky didn’t seem to want any part of it because the word “Jesus” faded leaving “saves” all on its own. And well, that works way better:”
“A skywriting plane painted the sky over Mardi Gras celebrations in Sydney on Saturday with a message saying ‘Jesus Saves’.
The gigantic message was crafted into the sky around 5pm as revelers took part in festivities for the 40th Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.
While some were disheartened by the attempt to cast a shadow over the parade , others saw the funny side that Jesus would be coming too”
“Ah yes, the equal love haters have struck again (shocker) with the skywriting. Some utter wanker had “Jesus Saves” written in the sky today, on the 40th anniversary of the Sydney Mardi Gras. Imagine being so sad and bitter you went out of your way and spent money to ruin someone else’s day. What a life:”
“Anyway, this little effort to ruin Mardi Gras has probably faded from the sky by now unlike the amount of love Sydney’s about to witness on their streets. Take that, haters.”
“A plane has taken to Sydney’s skies today to write the words “Jesus Saves” in gigantic letters over the annual Mardi Gras celebrations in the city.
The huge message written in the sky was first spotted by punters taking part in this year’s Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras around 5pm.
To the pleasure of many revellers however, the word “Jesus” had partly faded in the wind before the plane could write “Saves”.
“As Sydney gets ready to celebrate Mardi Gras, some one has been busy writing Jesus on the blue sky wall.

The backlash on social media has been disturbing. “Father forgive them for they know not what they are doing” was hard for me to pray. As I was reading the comments today hoping to find some positive feedback, all I found was mockery and insults.
I don’t know about you, but with me when they insult Jesus Christ I want to stone them. I don’t really care what they say about me, but when they mock and ridicule Jesus my Spanish “Old Self “ wants to take over. Pray for me! Speaking the truth in love does not come easy for me in some situations.
There was a time back 1980s, when reading God’s judgments in the book of Revelation, I use to wonder what would cause God to be so angry with humanity as to pour out His wrath in such a ghastly and terrible way. As I look at the world around me today, that question no longer enters my mind.
How about you ?, Are you saved ?, How do you contend for the faith that was once and for all delivered to the saints?
And you? Do you know your eternal destiny without Christ? What happens when you die in your sins?
“He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen.
Come, Lord Jesus! The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen.”
