Holy Spirit


Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost. (source)




And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there. (source)

Living with HOPEFULNESS

456

Heavenward and unfaltering gaze

Of optimism and unceasing praise

Persevering in God’s work of love

Empowered by His Spirit which has descended like a dove

Filled with gladness all the day long

Uttering thankfulness in word and song

Listening to the Lord with open mind and heart

Never forgetting his word; not letting his wisdom depart

Ever mindful of Jesus’ death and resurrection and our eternal future

Saved forever from our humanly faulty and sinful nature

Savior Jesus will come soon and lead us to his everlasting home.


Let nothing stop you

People easily find excuses not to fulfill their duties, believers easily find an excuse not to witness for Jesus and not to do what He commanded them to do but we must not allow anything from stopping us to follow Jesus Christ and from DOING what He commanded us to do. In the holiday season people are with family and then they stop following Jesus, they stop witnessing. They compromise because there are so many other things with which they occupy themselves, things that distract them.
Here where we live the national power grid is falling to pieces and we have frequent power cuts. Two days ago the Lord told me to buy a generator. This morning the power was off. You might be hearing the noise of the generator faintly in the background. If we follow Jesus He will guide us and we WILL DO what He commands us to do, we will not look for excuses but we will follow Jesus and GO where He sends us, DO what He tells us to do without excuses. Because when Jesus sends us we WILL NOT FAIL. We will DO what He tells us to do and we will accomplish that for which He sent us.
Do not look for a way out. Look to Jesus and He will ENABLE you to do that which He called you for. Stay focused on Jesus and He will guide you into fruitful service with NO EXCUSES.
May Jesus bless you.

Don’t cry before you are hurt

The past.

Personally, I’ve made a number of mistakes that I would, at first thought, go back and change if I had the opportunity to do so. I also have my fair share of those “If I knew what I know now back then…” moments.

Each of us is imperfectly perfect.

I try to remember, though, that while the past is part of who I am now, it does not define me.

Road to…

May all know how much problem’s you will have, if you are on the wrong road, and the right (correct) road is miles and miles away… What I did not know, It was looking far far away, but usually it was/is nearby. I got nightmares, dreamed about a place to go, but it was so scary, monsters, snakes, fire, hell, torture, sin, etc… Then somewhere I met (again) the Lord Jesus Christ in my dreams, so real, it was as if He was standing in my room, did not say anything, just a smile, both hands reached out. If you look at the painting, to express, what can not been told, you see in-between the red figures, a small path, a man is waiting for me, can you see the beautiful mountains?

Before I came to Lord Jesus Christ, I had an nightmare, in the middle of the night I was screamingFive‘, so load, that my neighbors and myself woke up. You may see, on top of ‘5’ the head of an snake. Both paintings are made with watercolor paint, from a nearby stationary: “Digo, Shanti stationary”, Kaski, Pokhara, Nepal.

Forgiveness / follow Jesus Christ


abeltjequintijn.wordpress.com


Beloved Brothers and Sisters, we know all Jesus can forgive, what about: Mark 2 

4 And when they could not come near unto him for the crowd, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed on which the paralytic lay.
5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the paralytic, Son, your sins be forgiven you.
6 But there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,
7 Why does this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?
8 And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned among themselves, he said unto them, Why reason you these things in your hearts?
9 Which is it easier to say to the paralytic, Your sins be forgiven you; or to say, Arise, and take up your bed, and walk?
10 But that you may know that the Son of man has power on earth to forgive sins, (he said to the paralytic)
11  say unto you, Arise, and take up your bed, and go your way into your house.
12 And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; so that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it in this fashion.

That man in the story could not do anything at all. He could not even choice to follow Jesus Christ, after he was forgiven he could, not is written if he done it, think so. Beloved Reader, can you forgive yourself? Can you forgive others?

For me, to be real sorry, learned the lesson, don’t do the same mistake anymore, is a kind of self forgiveness. Beloved Reader, what you think about it? – please reply, thanks.


To forgive others is also something, I have forgiven others so-many times, and know, how more you forgive others how stronger you will become.


Beloved Reader, please forgive yourself first, than the other. Also be sure, with the will-power of Lord Jesus, it will be even more simple. Success.

Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him (St Matthew 3:16)

This is amazing grace

Written by Christian (JUNE 29, 2014)

A few of days ago a story went viral across the internet. There was a photo with the caption “the moment a gay couple dared to kiss in the face of hate.” In a nutshell these two young ladies attending a gay parade and men next to the road were hurling remarks about hell and sin in their direction, their response to this display of hate was a kiss. After the kiss, Daskauskas turned to the men and asked, “How can you say God hates me when God is the author of love? I don’t believe love can sin.” To which, one of the men replied, “Do you really think God loves you? Is that how you sleep at night?”

This statement by this man grieves me to the very core of my being. Romans 10: 32 – 35 says “He who did not spare his Son, but gave him up for us all – how will He not also, along with him graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those who God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus who died – more than that, who was raised to life – is at the right hand of God and is interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the Love of Christ?”

God is love and He will pursue every sinner relentlessly till the ends of the earth. After the cross we live in a dispensation of grace, the veil was torn and God looks at each and every one of us through the eyes of his precious Son who died on the cross for your sins, past and future. However, it is man, or should I say ‘the Christian,’ who is driving the sinners away from the loving embrace of our Father by portraying Him as this hateful God who is out to punish and destroy. Christians need to stop seeing God through this veil of religion and focus on the pure, unconditional love of God. We need to show people that no matter what their sin, the love of God is unconditional. Religion has taught us that if we are good we deserve God’s love and if we are bad we do not, the minute we wonder whether we are good enough to approach the throne of grace the enemy exploits this doubt within us and pulls us further away from God as we labour under the impression that we will never be good or holy enough. It is not God who judges but rather sin that separates people from Him. If you die without having repented and believed in His Son then you cannot enter into His holy presence in heaven but God is not a God of hate who condemns people.

In Ephesians 3:17 Paul prays “so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.”

No matter how sordid your past you are God’s special creation made in His image. You were created for fellowship with him and no matter what anyone may say, God is always there, waiting for you to turn and run into His arms. John 3:16 -18 says “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world but to save the world through Him. Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only son.”

If you believe that Jesus died on the cross and took your place, confess your sins to Him and acknowledge Jesus as the Son of God, He will forgive you of your sins and wipe away your past and write your name in the Lamb’s book of life. So many people miss out on this amazing grace because they cannot fathom its simplicity and the unconditional love of God. Once you have done this you can start your walk of sanctification, and even if you screw up and sin again God’s love will continue to follow you and He will always be there to pick you up again. If you are a Christian that believes God hates people then you need so spend some time with Him and align your religious doctrines with His simple principles of love. We need to show the world that we are imitators of Christ and love everyone just as He loves us.

If you are not a Christian and you are reading this, don’t EVER let anyone tell you you are not good enough to approach Jesus and ask Him to come into your life.

The world says burn for your wicked ways, whereas Jesus says come just as you are.
