Blessed are……..

Matthew 5: 3-12

 

Blessed are the poor in spirImageit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

How Not to Debate an Atheist

How Not to Debate an Atheist

I think the best way to preach Jesus is through how a person who “truly” follows Him does the things God says to do and not how he judges someone because they are atheist. We will never win soul if we have a mindset to debate with them every time we present Jesus to them. Matthew 10:16 says, “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.”

Friends = TREASURE

Friends = TREASURE

It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.

My brother and sisters in Christ. Friendship in Jesus Christ. Lovely gift.

Psalm 23:1-6 (KJV)

 

  1. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
  2. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.Image
  3. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
  4. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
  5. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
  6. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for
    ever.

Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity. ~1 Timothy 4:12

How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word.~Psalm 119:9

A Perfect Marriage Relationship Before God

God who instituted the marriage union has a standard for it, the DOS and Don’t(s). Whoever follows those principles will enjoy a heavenly marriage even here on earth. The scripture clearly shows God’s standard to be followed and observed by His children. God is interested in the marriage of His children. In fact, He gives good husbands and wives to those who come to Him for His choice. My dear readers seek God’s face earnestly to receive His choice of a marriage partners. You married men and women, you need God in your troubled marriage relationship to enjoy and to spice up your marriage for you.

Proverb 19:14 says:

“Houses and riches are an inheritance from fathers, But a prudent wife is from the Lord.”

The verse above shows that it is only God that gives a good wife to any man that desire wife. Also, if you are a woman that is in need of husband, you can seek God’s face  for your handsome husband.

Matthew 7:11 says:

“If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!”

All you need is just ask Him for His choice because He knows what is good for you and He ready to give you your heart desired.

The scripture warn believer against marrying unbelievers. Then, who is an unbeliever we are talking about? An unbeliever is someone who has not been saved from sin through the blood of Jesus Christ. He is a sinner. He or she may be active in church and profess to be a Christian. Such should not be married by a child of God.

Alas, unfortunately in our society today that the rate at which people divorce is in GEOMETRIC PROGRESSION (G.P.) All efforts to ensure a save marriage proved abortive because we don’t align it with God’s principles. Any family that fails to make God their mentor has failed already.

Titus 1:16

“They profess to know God, but in works they deny Him, being abominable, disobedient, and disqualified for every good work.”

2 Corinthians 6:14-18

Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said:

“I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people.” Therefore “Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you.”

“I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”

Deuteronomy 7:3-4

“Nor shall you make marriages with them. You shall not give your daughter to their son, nor take their daughter for your son. For they will turn your sons away from following Me, to serve other gods; so the anger of the Lord will be aroused against you and destroy you suddenly.”

Don’t esteem such advantages as: beauty, same tribe, same church, educational attainment, social status, wealth, family background etc. Those formulas had led most people in serious problems. Therefore, follow the Bible requirement for peaceful marriage. Please! It is better not to marry at all than to marry an unbeliever thereby end-up in divorce. Don’t risk your eternal soul for damnation.

Finally, those of you are already married but in contradiction to the scripture. You should know that God is the marriage builder and marriage repairer. He can repair every marriage to unity and solve every problem between husband and wife, however complex it may be, if only you call Him in to your union. Bring your marriage before Lord; He will put it in order and give you peaceful marriage relation.

1 Peter 5:7 

“Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.”

Teach Me To Wait

It is better to be patient than powerful. Proverbs 16:32 (GNT)

Image

 “Be patient to everyone, but above all with   yourself.”

Nature provides many wonderful examples of patience. One of the most fascinating is the century plant,

Agave. This cactus grows to a height of about six feet then stops, standing at that height for twenty or thirty years. After that long period of time, a new bud suddenly sprouts at the top of the cactus and grows at a phenomenal rate up to seven inches a day! The cactus grows to a height of twenty to forty feet, and, finally, a crown of glorious yellow blossoms emerges at the top.

Our life is like the century plant. Often, it is after years of patience and preparation that the most wonderful things happen. All we need to do is continue walking with the Lord faithfully, patiently, every day.

Unlike the blooms on a century plant, the crown awaiting us will not be gone in three short weeks. It will last for all eternity!

The path of the Christian life is a long journey with many unexpected turns, delays, and setbacks. Progress can be difficult. It is likely that we are the one who gets the most impatient with our progress. At those times when we’re impatient, better keep in mind that becoming all that God created us to be takes time—lots of time! But if we keep our eye on the goal, we’ll get there—not through our own strength and resources, but through His.

 

But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.-Romans 8:25 (ESV)

Power Of Prayer

The power of prayer is not the result of the   person praying. Rather, the power resides in the God who is being prayed to. 1 John 5:14-15 tells us, “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us – whatever we ask – we know that we have what we asked of him.” No matter the person praying, the passion behind the prayer, or the purpose of the prayer – God answers prayers that are in agreement with His will. His answers are not always yes, but are always in our best interest. When our desires line up with His will, we will come to understand that in time. When we pray passionately and purposefully, according to God’s will, God responds powerfully!

We cannot access powerful prayer by using “magic formulas. Our prayers being answered is not based on the eloquence of our prayers. We   don’t have to use certain words or phrases to get God to answer our prayers. In fact, Jesus rebukes those who pray using repetitions, “And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him” (Matthew 6:7-8). Prayer is communicating with God. All you have to do is ask God for His help. Psalm 107:28-30 reminds us, “Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress. He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and he guided them to their desired haven.”

There is power in prayer!

Hold On

As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many peopleshould be kept alive, as they are today. Genesis 50:20

God promised to make Abraham the father of a great nation, with descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky (Gen. 15:5) Despite his great faith, can you blame him for questioning when this was going to happen when he was still fatherless at age 75 (Gen. 12:4)?

Samuel anointed David as king of Israel in response to Saul’s spirit of disobedience (1 Sam. 16:1). The problem is David was hunted like a fugitive and animal for the next seven years (1 Sam. 19:9) No wonder he cried to God, “Why have you forgotten me? Why am I sad and troubled by my enemies?” (Psalm 42:9).

Moses led the Hebrew slaves from captivity and into the Promised Land over the course of forty years (Ex. 16:35). Jesus spent the first thirty years of His life as a child, son (as was supposed) before the right moment came for Him to begin His ministry (Luke 3:23).

Why doesn’t God just bring about His plan in our lives right now? Could it be that once of the most important ways God forms us into the image of His Son Jesus Christ is through allowing us to express our faith in Him through waiting?

In the Proverb, Solomon points out the natural truism that “When hope is crushed, the heart is crushed, but a wish come true fills you with joy”(13:12-GNT). But Paul’s testimony that “the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us”(Romans 8:18) is a powerful reminder that God may not be early BUT He’s always right on time with just what we need.

Is your soul weary with worry? Are you frustrated waiting to know what God wants to do in your life? HOLD ON. God is on the way right now.
