Jewish heritage of Christian church

Jewish heritage of Christian church

I wonder if Christiandom is aware that Christians have Jewish heritage.

I grew up in a place where Catholicism is the main religion. Catholicism which have many graven images which they claim help their senses or help their understanding.But  I do not remember seeing statues of Abraham, Moses and David  and Solomon.

According to Exodus 20:4-5 and Deuteronomy 5;8-9 The  Jews or the Hebrews are commanded not to make any graven images.

According to the Catholics, Peter is the first pope but Peter in Acts 5:29  said we ought  to obey God rather than men. Peter is a Jewish Christian, so most likely he does not have any graven image. Mary the mother of Jesus is also Jewish.

So to whom it may concern, what do you think ?

The deer hunter

The deer hunter

I have not heard many deer hunter stories. When i was a boy i remember seeing a deer head preserved and placed on wood plate placed on display.

I remember liking deer meat too. That was then and now as an adult i wondered about that deer head. Was the deer head placed on display for the deer's glory ?

I wonder.

Gory or glory

Gory or glory

The sight of Jesus dying on the cross haunts me. It seems that image is quite troubling or is it numbing? Why can't we remember or imagine Jesus sitting on the throne in heaven getting or awaiting to come back to earth.

We know Jesus died for our sins. We believe He rose from the dead and ascended back to heaven and sat on the throne interceeding for us.

One of these days the skies will open.

Matthew 24:30,31 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

And He shall send His angels with a great sound of trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of  heaven to the other.

Let us take note of these: the tribes of the earth will mourn while the elect will be gathered from one end of heaven to the other.

Did you see it ?

Let us not be careless with our soul

Let us not be careless with our soul

Some of us are meticulous on some things or another. Some are so concerned with their health, that they eat and exercise well. There are many things we could be busy on but how about our soul or souls ?

Do we feed our soul with spiritual food ? Do we read the Bible ? pray ? meditate ? True we have body needs that requires attention and care but how about our soul or souls ? Do we know where our souls are going when we die ?

If you are already taking care of your soul, then i am happy for you. But if not then this is the time because we do not know what tomorrow will bring.

The true God and us

The true God and us

How do we know our God is the true God ? One way to tell if we have the false God is when we make him after our image. The true God is bigger than ourselves.

For me the true God is the One described in the Holy Bible. But it will not be enough to know about God. The real question is do we have a relationship with Him ?

Where is your God ? Do you keep your God fastened on a tree or cross ?

The Bible says Jesus already rose from the dead. He is seated at the right hand of the Father.

I like the Catholic Church in Vallejo , California where Jesus is portrayed as seated on a throne.

Have you found Jesus yet ?

Have you found Jesus yet ?

If you found Jesus already and will not let go of Him no matter what, then you may stop reading my blog or blogs. But if you do not have Jesus yet and still open then i hope my blog could be of help.

First the best place to find Jesus is in the Holy Bible. In life i heard many false beliefs about Jesus that can be corrected only by prayer and careful study of the Bible.

To be honest, I am still growing in the Christian faith. Thank God for His never ending love, grace and mercy. But when we die we will submit our life for judgment. According to Hebrews 9:27, And it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.  Will we pass or fail ?

Let us keep seeking Jesus.

Is loving God the most important to you ?

Is loving God the most important to you ?

I believe this is the most soul searching question we could ever ask ourselves.

When we first came into the world, i believe the first thing we did was cry, we want something for ourselves. Do we still want something for ourselves now that we are grown up ?

Again let us think of the above question. If our answer is yes, the next question is why ?

Let us give ourselves a few days to answer these questions. If you have your affirmative answers already i am happy for you.

God bless you.

Salvation according to Holy Spirit through apostle Paul

Salvation according to Holy Spirit through apostle Paul

Inspired by the Holy Spirit, apostle Paul wrote to early Christians these passages or  verses. Ephesians 2:8-10.

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

For we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

Let's copy these one more time and study or meditate on them.

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

For we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them

Let's separate them into parts

For by grace         you have been saved through faith,        and that not of yourselves,      

   it is the gift of God, not of works,      lest anyone should boast.

For we are His workmanship            created in Christ Jesus for good works,        

  which God prepared beforehand        that we should walk in them

Did you see what the Holy Spirit is saying through apostle Paul ?

God saved us first then we do good works after we are saved.

From Parkinsons to Park in Son

From Parkinsons to Park in Son

It has been ten years since I was diagnosed with Parkinsons. Slowly i can feel my body movements etc sort of disintegrating. Through the help of my doctor and understanding from my family , friends , and brethren i  still  manage to get by.

I kept seeking God to heal me, requesting prayers from my pastors and fellow Christians. But seems God answers with II Corinthians 12:9 ." My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness."

Apostle Paul then wrote therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

So i will encourage fellow Parkinsons owners to remember to Park in Son. So that the power of the Son manifests through us.

Seeking something I already planned to discard

Seeking something I already planned to discard

I have a drill and driver set with batteries that no longer hold charge that I have decided to dispose because they also don't make those batteries anymore.So i put the set aside.

Later in the day i thought where is that set. For some reasons beyond me I can't find the set . I looked all over the house multiple times and I kept looking for it and not planning to give up.

To make a long story short, I realized why am i looking for something i do not need anymore ?

Could that also same with us Christians? we sometimes get preoccupied with something that have no use for the future or eternity.?

Let me encourage my fellow Christians to make God the Father and Jesus and the Holy Spirit smile with our godly activities.
