Jesus Christ is our blessed hope

Jesus Christ is our blessed hope

Take away Jesus and Jews have no hope. Take away Jesus and Christians become empty and take away Jesus and world will spin out of control.

Jesus showed us who God the Father is like. According to Paul as he wrote to the Colossians, in Jesus dwelt the fulness of God.

Jesus showed us Christians how to live and love.

Our confession of our sins finds its forgiveness in Jesus.

Let's meditate on Jesus.

We have sinned and done wrong

We have sinned and done wrong

These words are found in the Bible, can we guess who wrote or said those words ?

Would you believe it came from the prophet Daniel ? For the complete prayer or confession, please see Daniel chapter 9. The complete prayer starts with Daniel 9:4-and ends 9:19..

After we read the prayer, can we the Christian churches  of today, say we have not done those ?

The preaching of Jimmy Swaggart

The preaching of Jimmy Swaggart

Yesterday i watched a replay of one of Jimmy Swaggart's classic crusades.The preaching were done in the 1980's over thirty years ago. Talking about preaching i also watched replays of Billy Graham's crusade but for now let's talk about Jimmy Swaggart's preaching.

The preaching were heavy against sin  although Jimmy fell into sin too in his later years but seems to have recovered from that.

I wonder what preaching  do we like to listen today now that we are in 2017.

Do we sense we are closer to Jesus now or are we going away from Jesus ?

Had a pleasant repeated dream

Had a pleasant repeated dream

I dreamt some friends who do not mention the Bible are quoting or using the Bible at least in the dream. I could have let it go but I had another dream, my close relative  who I am wishing to read the Bible for the long time, was also quoting the Bible.

Will these come true ? I hope so.

What is it like to do business with Jesus

What is it like to do business with Jesus ?

Life is a business. Let us see how or what is like to do business with Jesus based on the Holy Bible.Since this blog for people living now, let us look from our perspective. Before we were born Jesus already did His part of the deal. He died for us , gave His body and blood for us, He left His home in heaven to do these. He also promised to give us what we need if we will do "business" with Him.

For our part, we need to renounce , confess our life of sin, disobedience from God or repent for all the sins we have done. We need to believe in Jesus, in His deity, and all His teachings. Jesus 'teachings are not of this world that is why on our own it is hard for us to follow Him. But when we surrender our life to Jesus , His Father gives us the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit helps us know and obey God's teachings.

What else do we need?,since we can not see God, Jesus and Holy Spirit we have to have faith for without faith  it is impossible to please God.

According to the Bible, 1 John 2:15-17 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world-- the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does--comes not from the Father but from the world The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.

Now do you want to do business with Jesus? another way of saying this is do you want to establish relationship with Jesus ?

What gives birth to faith and intense prayer

What gives birth to faith and intense prayer and wisdom and humility

The above rarely happen  in times of easy life and abundance but in times of need,weaknesses and times when there is not much choice left.

Do you find this to be true or untrue ? Do you have other answers ?

Prayer for the world's transportation systems

Prayer for the world's transportation systems  & travellers

I remember in the Philippine public utility vehicles called jeepneys which are US military jeeps converted into public and private transports,somewhere in the windshields are adorned with prayers for safe travel. I like that idea plus with the ever increasing reliance of the world on modern modes of people and material transport, prayers are very much needed.

Looks like there are many things to pray for like the condition of drivers, pilots, crews, the vehicles themselves, the weather, the road conditions, traffic signals, the passengers, the visas or passports, the fuel, the brake system, the capacities of vehicles, the people enforcing the traffic rules, road repairs etc.

Talking about travelling Jesus Christ came from heaven to earth to save mankind, taught, and preached about the kingdom of God, died for our sins, rose again and left instructions to the early disciples and went back to heaven to sit at the right hand of God the Father.

Jesus promised that He will come again to take His followers & believers to heaven. Our mode of travel ? It was revealed to apostle Paul that we will be changed from corruptible to incorruptible. We will soar into the sky in the twinkling of an eye, the dead in Christ will rise first and those of us who are alive and remain will be caught up with them in the air and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Apostle Paul continued " Comfort one another with these words".

Pursuit of God

Pursuit of God

I believe our pursuit of God should be continuous. and should be second to none. God should be our number one goal to please and love. I believe the one who can do this will be blessed more by God aside from being given God 's gift of salvation.

How can we pursue God ? I believe through the Bible and by our thirsty and hungry hearts. We should not allow our hearts to grow cold. Maybe you will ask , why don't you lead  ? me , no, i am just a seeker like everyone else.

I am like a coal in a barbeque pit, i need fellow coal to keep me warm and perhaps warm others  too.

Let's keep on keeping on, that  is  in our pursuit of God.

A lesson on Biblical interpretation

A lesson on Biblical interpretation

How would anyone interpret Hebrew 9:27 ? which say :And it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.

Comment: This appears to tell that our death is like passing our test paper for correction. So our lives while alive will be the basis of our eternal destination.

Suggestion: Be reconciled to God through Jesus Christ while one is still alive.
