Just as I am

Just as I am, without one plea,
But that Thy blood was shed for me,
And that Thou bid’st me come to Thee,
O Lamb of God, I come! I come!
Just as I am, and waiting not
To rid my soul of one dark blot;
To Thee whose blood can cleanse each spot,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come!
Just as I am, though tossed about
With many a conflict, many a doubt;
Fightings within, and fears without,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come!
Just as I am, poor, wretched, blind;
Sight, riches, healing of the mind;
Yes, all I need, in Thee to find,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come!
Just as I am, Thou wilt receive,
Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve;
Because Thy promise I believe,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come!
Just as I am, Thy love unknown
Has broken every barrier down;
Now, to be Thine, yea, Thine alone,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come!

Searching for a Healing Prayer, I looked for "God will make a way" and could not find it. Than I saw "Beneath the cross of Jesus" and feeling at home, I continued and found the way to get to the Father, "Just as I am". Queen words rang a bell in my heart, as I was reading her words, and remembered that Jesus said: "Where two or three are gathered in my name, I will be among them". And It is my belief that Jesus and the Father heard us and we are going to experience the healing we so much seek in His Grace. Thanks be to God for Jesus. Father, I love you.

In my revelation just now while I dosed off some persons that was in distressed was singing this song on the television and I rushed out of the bathroom trying to go and join them to sing it and I waked up, then I knew the Lord is asking me to come to His Presence today just as I am and all my need especially healing for I and my husband will be found in His presence. That was why I had to search for this song. Thank You Lord God Almighty for Your Love


Nairobi, Kajiado, Kenya

I woke up this morning with this song in my heart and I had to look for it.

Just as I am , I come Lord.

All I need in thee to find...

I love you Lord for your warm embrace around me regardless of how I am, who I am and where I come from.

Thanks for the blood of Jesus that has cleansed me from all my filth, now I am yours and yours alone.

Glory to God in the highest.

Lord I'm waiting not... I've come, just as I am.

Great hymn

Went straight to confessional after hearing the hymn

Praise The Lord for this hymn which was composed by The Holy Spirit and written by Charlotte Elliot through her sorrow and comfort that only THE LORD JESUS CHRIST could relieve. It is the most profound and deepest prayer of sinner desperately in need of The SAVING GRACE OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. These words have been carved in my heart and soul and have been such a tremendous blessing to me , they will never depart from my life till the day I see JESUS and lay prostrate before HIM. For GOD has exalted HIM and given HIM a Name that is above every Name , that at The Name of JESUS every knee should bow and every tongue confess that JESUS CHRIST IS LORD to THE GLORY OF GOD THE FATHER.

Every sinner must repent and call upon HIS NAME

Every believer must cleanse HIS heart and purify his garments by The Blood, The Word and The Holy Spirit for HE IS COMING BACK for a Spotless and blameless Bride .

God love us

We should simply come to the Lord without any way. Hymns, #1048 says, "Just as I am ... / O Lamb of God, I come! I come!" Every morning come to the Lord: "Lord, I come just as I am. I do not know how to pray. I come as I am, in my situation, not knowing. You know. It does not matter how I feel; it is up to Your leading." Every day come to the Lord in this way.

God is Spirit; hence, our contacting and absorbing Him do not depend on our words. Some people utter many words when they pray, but their words are like sounding brass or clanging cymbals; they do not have much value before God. We may not say anything when we come to God, but our whole being, including our heart, should face God. While we look to God, we may sigh and confess that we are incompetent, weak, unable to rise, unpresentable, and thirsty and that we lack words for the gospel and are not inclined to fellowship with the saints. We should lay our inner condition before God and even tell Him that we are short in every matter. No matter what our inner condition is, we should bring it to God. There is a hymn that says, "Just as I am" (Hymns, #1048). This means that we should come to God just as we are without trying to improve or change our condition. Our attitude when we come to God should be to come just as we are.

In England in the early 19th century there was a woman who had Christian parents and who for years had longed to be saved. She went to hear this and that preacher and visited churches and chapels in her search for salvation, but all in vain. One day she wandered into a little chapel with no real expectation in her heart, for she was almost in despair. She sat down at the back. The speaker was an elderly man. Suddenly in the middle of his address he stopped and pointing his finger at her said: 'You Miss, sitting there at the back, you can be saved now. You don't need to do anything!' Light flashed into her heart, and with it peace and joy. Charlotte Elliott went home and wrote her well-known hymn: 'Just as I am, without one plea ... O Lamb of God I come.' Those words have pointed to countless sinners the way of humble access to God through the blood of Christ. Yes, we dare to say to-day, to every one of the inhabitants of Shanghai or of any other city, that they can come to Him and be saved just as they are.

I repeat these incidents just to emphasize that what the sinner cannot do the Saviour is at hand to do for him. It is for this reason that we can tell people that they need not wait for anything, but can come to Him immediately. Whatever their state, whatever their problem, let them bring it and tell it to the Friend of sinners.

I like the song we sang today. It says, "Just as I am...I come! I come!" [Hymns, #1048]. I have told you before that this hymn was written by a woman in her twenties. She said that she had the sense of sin since she was very young. She wondered how a person like herself could face God. To her this was impossible. She visited many churches and talked with many pastors. She asked them questions and tried to find out from them how she could be saved. This went on for seven or eight years. Many told her that she had to do better before she could believe in Jesus. Others told her that she should pray more and study the Bible more. Still others told her to do good and perform noble deeds, or to do this or do that before she could believe in the Lord Jesus and be saved. As time went by, she found herself worse than before. In the end, she met an old preacher. She asked the old man what she must do before she could be saved. The old man put his hand on her back and said, "Go to God just as you are." She jumped up and asked, "Do I not have to do better, make more progress, and improve more before I can believe in the Lord Jesus?" The old man said, "There is no such need. You can come just as you are." On that day, she became clear and realized that she could come to the Lord just as she was.

God knows that we are sick. This is why He sent us the Doctor. Friends, have you ever been sick? Suppose I have a fever of one hundred five degrees. If I ask the doctor to come, will he say that he will come when the temperature drops to one hundred three? The sicker I am, the faster the doctor will come. If a person's temperature is ninety-eight degrees, the doctor may say that since it is only ninety-eight degrees, there is no need to go. The more serious your illness is, the faster the doctor will come. The woman admitted that she was a sick person and that Jesus Christ is the Physician from God who came to heal her. Not long after she returned home, she wrote this hymn: "Just as I am...I come! I come!"
