Now when is gospel time best to preach...?

 

Now the best category is like in this site is 'Writing and Poetry'. I feel this way I can really explore my thought and put out my essay on topics that tickle my brain. Now writing about God is not different than writting about ourselves,  because God is interested on us and what we think...

I was thinking about Jesus and the woman at the well. He had interest in this common, run off the mill woman who just happened to come to draw water at noon when the morning rush had passed and all the gossip had simmered down...

Now some commentaries, say that this woman, may not have been of high repute in that town, because she had had four of five husbands and the latest was just a come lately. But Jesus was interested in her...

And if we widen the scope of this message, now what kind of God is interested in the unseemgly? Now why would God be interested in me? Why is when I expect him the least someone preached Jesus to me on the bus or at work or even at school...

The answer to that is that God likes suprises. And likes to suprise each night with a new day every morning. And God want to surprise you and tell you that he has been thinking about you and listening to you sighs and thoughts....

God wants to chat with you as you carry on with daily business and tell you, that he is the answer to all your problems and wants to help you! And God means business when he calls and will not respect answering machines...

So please if God calls you today talk to him and let him in on your life and trouble. He really want to know what that problem is...

May you be blessed. Amen.

The Closing Christmas Sabbath Service Sermon: The Pupil...

 

Closing Christmas Holiday Sermon Service Sermon: The Pupil...!

As you can remember, if you will, we've spoke on the opening sermon for Christmas that our Teacher was born and that we should celebrate by giving gifts rejoicing in that fact. Perhaps sing carols, secular or not and follow the Christmas chime of the Season. Solomon said that there's a Season for everything and a time for every purpose. And have we given our purpose time to mature? Have we given up on the New Years resolution to be more involved in the things of God?...

Have considered meditation and prayer, study and soul searching, bible study and fasting, and we all know we should give more and forgive even more than that! But have we learned anything from the Teacher and his book the bible? There was a time in Acts, Paul went to Iconium and him and Barnabas healed a Cripple there and the people marveled that they were the god, Zeus and his assistant angel Hermes and they the people brought gift to sacrifice to these men who did the miracle...

In Christmas we celebrate a miracle, God becomes man, born of a vigin birth. And we the people also give gift to celebrate this miracle and it is wonderful for Season and I got some gifts, gave some and passed over to someone else some. But have you, I celebrated the miracle of our birth, not flesh, but spirit. Have we given gifts to celebratet the wonder of the rebirth to eternal life. In the movie Avatar, Jake sought to bring his limp legs back, but the tree of life brough him a whole new life...

Have we stopped giving gifts? Why has the celebration stopped? Because the Mall took down the decorations? God has not taken down in Heaven the decorations of your life, covered by the blood of Christ? God celebrates your new life everyday! And everytime a new member of the family is born they exchange gift in heaven again and again! Now why have we stopped celebration and giving gifts? Have we run out of fatted calfs to kill and roast and golden rings to give? Has the grace of God stopped flowing?...for us? me?...

The banquet of God is a continual ceremony that is perpertual forever and God never stops giving gifts out of his grace, because he is gracious and know we need his grace everyday! But why have we stopped? Why have we stopped giving gifts? Those who have two coats? And two loaves of bread? Why have we stopped believing and sharing? Who told us that the grace of God has stopped? God asked Adam and Eve, "Who told you you were naked...?" Who told you, you were naked in grace and would perish in need...?...

Certainly our Teacher never told us we were naked or naked in grace! Then why have we become ungracious?...Why have I become ungracious? Thinking that if I gave, I would be in want...?

May you be blessed. Amen.

The Mystery of the Spiritual Life...!

 

The Mystery of the Spiritual Life...!

We turn to 1Timothy 3:14-16,

["...14These things I write to thee, hoping to come unto thee soon,

15and if I delay, that thou mayest know how it behoveth [thee] to conduct thyself in the house of God, which is an assembly of the living God -- a pillar and foundation of the truth,

16and, confessedly, great is the secret of piety -- God was manifested in flesh, declared righteous in spirit, seen by messengers, preached among nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory!..."]

Now Paul wanted to see his church or that is the Church of God and was hoping to see them soon. But he says that if he delays, he want the church how to behave, which he affirms is is body of Christ. And futher testifies that, that the Church of God is pillar that sustains and is the foundation of the truth. And cofesses that the secret of God, that he came from heaven and became a man, totally holy in the Spirit, seen by the apostles and many in Judea and everywhere Jesus went in his ministry...

And now is preached among the nations. And many have come to believe in his message of Eternal Life. And after finishing his work, ascended back to heaven, where he was before, even before the world was. Now why did Paul wanted his Church to see this or that is to see. To have eyes to see and ears to hear. And he wanted the decipiles to see the calling God had for them and how they should behave themselves, seeing that they were the children of God...

And part of the vision is to see who Jesus really was, God himself, and not just a nice a freind who went along with them preaching the gospel, eating, talking, fellowshipping and carrying along with them, but was God himself, glorious, creator of heaven and earth and sea and universe. And the message for them after seeing who he was that we should listen to him and capable of impeckable source of guidance, with all glory and wisdom...

And the message for us is that God wishes and hopes that we can come to be able to see how glorious his message is, like he is himself and the glorious result of Eternal Life for all those he calls and they come to believe him and his words...

May you be blessed. Amen.

Picking the berries off the spiritual tree...!

 

Picking the berries off the spiritual tree...!

It seems the Lord, day by day, is allowing to allow us to come closer to his tree of life. My mother started to make a comment about how my daughter picked up a credit card and was headed for trouble. I agreed by said your daughter make 1000's and 1000's of dollars in income and cannot make ends meet and how could you look a my poor daughter and look at her, thought poingnatly have all the right reasoning? And I thought of myself and those I owe and how I really have little give or partake with anyone...!

And if I had something to give, I've learned that nobody can outgive the Lord. And the Lord said to me in heart, "Why don't you give out of you patience, longsuffing and forgiveness...?" And "It seems that is what is more scarce in the land more than money and physical bread, is sympathy and unmerited forgiveness. And I thought how foolish I had been with my mother and the exchange we had. And when we arrive home from our ride, I changed my tone of voice and reminded her not to forget a 'snicker' chocolate bar I had bought for both of us...

And getting off the vehicle I remembered that I had two gallons of pomonategrate juice I had bought at bargain and has forgot about it. And putting away in the ref, I remembered or found a goblet of red wine, which I thought was chilled and wanted a taste. And I thought of the broken snicker bar and sip of wine I gave my mother. And thought about the communion symbols and how the Lord had forgiven my terrible attrocities I had committed in my life...

But I was comforted that I still had something to give, like if I could give anything, even if it was just changing the tone of my voice and perhaps entertain a freindly exchange for a change. And the Lord clearly said that if we are truly his dicipile, we will abide in his word, that the truth would be manifest and he and truth would set us free. I not a cent on my trousers, but there I was tasting a goblet of chilled wine, if anything but to taste it and share it and break the snicker bar, share that, give God thanks and forgive all...

May you be blessed. Amen.

Is the apotolyptic really a mystery...

Is the apotolyptic really a mystery...?

When we see world disasters and mishaps in the world and pain and violence in it, we should not think God doesn't know. We turn to Romans 8:18-21,

["...18For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

19For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

20For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,

21Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God..."]

And that why it is so important to put on lights the truth so that truth may be manifest in men, and blessing come and not disasters. And Jesus prophesied of this disaster that occompany the work of liars close to the end of the age and close to the coming of our Lord. Matthew 24,

["...5For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

6And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

8All these are the beginning of sorrows.

9Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.

10And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

11And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

12And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

13But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved..."]

When these thing happen, we should not act like if we did not know. And these disasters will come to pass. And we are hated and we do feel offended and we feel like giving up. The only reason we don't quit, is because God does let us give up. He extolls us to keep on proding and reminding us that the time draws near and the furnace of hell is being kindled to receive those who stumble the human race and cause this disasters to happen, because the earth cannot endure their abominations...

The earth goes in convulsion and wants to vomit these society which is top, rim full with evil. But we rise up and proclaim and tell and exhort and why does the world need a cataclamatic disaster to believe? And Jesus says that this is only the beginning. And I just tremble and shudder to think how can we stand to be hated more than we are today? Lord please help us in this day of darkness...Amen.

May you be blessed. Amen.
