If Truth is to Be Told!

If Truth is to Be Told!

If TRUTH is all that people seek, then it should be spoken. But oh no! People seek the truth but when they hear the One that had been sent, their hearts are stubborn. Denied Him and they went back on their own paths. For they were friends with worldly wicked ways

If TRUTH is all that needed, then it should be said, but oh no! Many tend to be teachers of the law but are filled with indignation and corrupt. How then are you to follow the LAW OF GOD when the law of men you have put aside for your own pleasure! The law of men was set aside by some because their mind is futile, therefore the Law of God is misunderstood. The law was supposed to correct an unlawful mankind. The law is to reveal the crime committed. If truth is to be told.

If TRUTH is all that people seek, then it should be spoken well and done. But oh no, people still go back to feed their needs of lies which will not work for eternity.
You who practice sin, you who are stubborn, you who are commit unlawful relationship, you who are liars, you who gossip, you who are drunkard, you who walks in the ways of a lustful woman, you who steal, you who kill in your minds, you who dishonour your father and mother, you who are disrespectful to mankind and you who love money, you who are greed. You who practice sexual impurity and sexual desires in your body and mind and in your heart perverse your soul.
The gates of fire and brimstone awaits those who are against the moral law of God.
You can be set free if TRUTH is all you need.


Churching of Our times

Churching of Our times

This article is not written to find faults within the churches but to encourage the leaders to seek the needs of the people spiritually rather than to entertain them. To carry out the the true meaning of the message through the glad tidings of the gospel rather than fitting a preaching to suit a certain kind of people. Fear of God is a must. And the leaders must now earn from them. But freely give them.

Many comes to church for a sensational purpose. To meet friends, to feel relieved, to feel religiously connected, yet there is no spiritual motivation to seek the meaning of Christ. This sensation fills the power of infedelity and lack of spiritual desire. One by one, the church is filled with comfortable people rather than faithful beings.

Such preaching engenders anger and strife, but very little of the love of Christ; yet it undoubtedly proves attractive to a certain class of people.

– Charles Patterson

Every meeting, the church is proudly presenting its workshops with pride. Highlighting the importance of the jobs in pride. I have experienced boredom in church whereby I have to stand out a 15 minute of entertainment before I calm down my earthly body to prepare for the teaching. Thus, the lust of meeting the people becomes weak inside of me. I came to eat the meat of my soul. But it seemed very welcoming to everyone to recognise the commercial events of the church. And God was the last to be thanked for.

And it proves daily, the more the person was present in the church, many are motivated because of the meeting, engulfed by what theyve heard. But essentially, their spirit has issues. And the more activities they joined, they damp the desire of the soul to be connected to their God.

The sensational attendance fills the church. But the soul is lacking in the bench. And the spirit of God is outside the building. But the show must go on and the sales of the books must continue. The coffe bar must accommodate all the church visitors and the administration will be filled with glorification.

I am not against the church, in fact I encourage so many people to meet and greet there. Yet there must be an inner desire to be there for the sake of the food for the soul. And there must be a teacher eager to promote healthy spiritual activities rather than selling books, selling coffees and joining a lot of meetings that costs a lot.

Jesus declared his true mission to be. It was certainly not to construct a vast ecclesiastical system. His gospel was to be one of spiritual enlightenment—for the healing of persons that were diseased in either mind or body. There was no article of belief nor complex creed. – Charles Patterson

All in all.. Some churches are the bank robbers of our time.
Not all.. But the large ones and some comes as thieves.. And some comes from a well-known people in the pews.

Raising up Children in This Modern Age

Raising up Children in This Modern Age

We will teach our children to be strong in the mind, soft in the heart and awake in the soul. – Rochelle

It is important to have time with your children during their young days. Certainly all the “must” is not a priority. The scriptures talk about teaching the children the right way and to teach them through the time we set up for them. However, I live on a small scale of my salary. It is enough with food, clothes, a little fun sometimes with the children is the best I can give, when you know that sometime when they are going to form their family they will also teach their children the things they have learned during their upbringing.

It may be hard not to think about yourself but if you are a believer and are a good parent then you should not show the children that you are busy with yourself. This realization means that the children will not care much about others and may lead to an unconscious selfishness.

God gave us the power to distinguish between right and wrong, so it is important that we teach the children the basics of life. To be a law-abiding citizen, to be a good person in society. You don’t have to be as demanding or perfect either.

We get to teach the children to fear their God. In this way, we can build up the child to be strong in this modern age. Being a parent is tough, it takes patience, perseverance and understanding. Just as with God, He has also brought us up through the road. It was tough with some situations and some days feel like you want to give up. We will teach our children to be strong in the mind, soft in the heart and awake in the soul.

We dont need to rush. Let is take the time we have. We do as best we can. If we do it slowly but surely, then we contribute to a better world. You know that the children also learn in the community themselves and the things they learn at home can be mixed with outside learning. God’s Blessings …

Det är viktigt att ha tid med sina barn under sina unga dagar. Visst alla “måsten” är inget prio. Skriften talar om att man ska lära barnen den rätta vägen och de lär dem genom tid vi lägger upp. Jag dock lever upp i en liten skala av min lön. Det räcker med mat, kläder, lite kul ibland med barnen är det bästa jag kan ge, för man vet att någon gång när de ska bilda sina egna familj kommer de också lära sina barn de saker som de har lärt sig under sin uppväxt.

Det kan vara svårt att inte tänka på sig själv men om man är troende och är en bra föräldrar så skall man inte visa barnen att man är upptagen med sig själv. Den insikten gör att barnen kommer inte bry sig så mycket om andra och kanske leder till en omedveten själviskhet.

Gud gav oss makten att skilja mellan rätt och fel, då är det viktigt att vi lär barnen det grunderna i livet. Att vara en laglydiga medborgare, att vara en bra person i samhället. Man behöver inte vara så krävande eller perfekt heller..

Vi får lära barnen att frukta sin Gud. På det viset, kan vi bygga upp barnet att vara starkt i den här moderna tid. Det är tufft att vara förälder, det krävs tålamod, uthållighet och förståelse. Precis så med Gud, Han har också uppfostrat oss genom vägen. Det var tufft med vissa situationer och vissa dagar känns som man vill ge upp. Vi ska lära våra barn att vara starka i sinnet, mjuk i hjärtat och vaken i själen.

Vi behöver inte skynda oss. Vi tar den tid vi får. Vi gör så gott vi kan. Om vi gör det sakta men säkert, då bidrar vi i en bättre värld. Du vet att barnen lär sig också själva ute i samhället och de saker de lär sig hemma kan blandas med lärdom utifran. Guds välsignelser…

Tear the Idols from your Home

Tear the Idols from your Home

God hates idolatry. It is likely to adultery. You bring about a statue made of out wood, silver or gold. You give and serve incense and preferably pray and speak to it with your mind. By this you connect yourself into a spiritual prostitution.

Thus, the statue cannot hear your words, cannot see your tears and situation. And God is jealous because when we adore human creations and serve them, we ignite his anger and jealousy.

God wants that we speak to Him alone, because He can make a change within your circumstances and give strength in your weaknesses. He catches your tears and may keep you far from troubles. Peace will reside in your home.

7:25 “You shall burn their idols with fire. You shall have no desire for the silver and gold that is on them, nor take any of it yourself, lest you be cut off from it, for it is abominable for HaShem your God. “(SFB revised) – We must destroy idols in our territory. But we do not have the right to do so in the territory of others.

7:26 “Thou shalt not let any abominable thing enter into thy house, lest thou also suffer affliction. You must count such things as extremely disgraceful and abominable. It is the playhouse. ”(SFB) – Be careful about what you bring into your home! Go through all your children’s toys, all the clothes you have, all the magazines you have, all the paintings and cards you have, all the ornaments, all the jewelry and everything else you have. All objects used in idolatry, for example in Midsummer, Lucia and Christmas celebrations, or manufactured for the sake of idols, such as Buddha statues, Catholic candles, Muslim prayer mats and the Thursday hammer, are abominable objects for the Ende. If you bring such items into your home, you will receive the judgment that falls on them, cf. Joshua 7.

Acts 15: 20a says:

“They shall abstain from uncleanness through idolatry” (SFB)

One must dispose of all objects that have been defiled by paganism.

8: 1 “All the commandments that I give you today, you must be careful to live and be numerous, and to enter and take possession of the land which HaShem swore to you. fathers. ”(SFB revised) – The result of obedience is life, multiplication, and the right to live in the land of Israel. Do you want to win many souls for the coming Kingdom? Keep the bids that apply to you and you will multiply.

Why do You see My Mistakes Often?

Why do You see My Mistakes Often?

Matt:1-3 Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?

Isn’t it we must see ourselves first with a reminder we once were in their shoes. With an approach to our neighbour who have done mistakes, can we show with care and hope without humiliating them and not letting them feel the guilt they already have.

Viewing other people and the world through the lens of a good eye endows us with a certain degree of optimism. From this perspective, every glass is half-full, not half-empty. A person is not defined by their lacks and weaknesses but by their strengths and potentials. Even a generation or historical period is judged according to its merits rather than its deficiencies.

Imagine how positive and kind our daily encounters could be if we would adopt a good eye and condition ourselves to view others more generously. Imagine a world in which the baseline of human interaction is the benefit of the doubt. Such a world would draw forth and activate the inherent kindness of our nature in a never-ending loop of mutual reinforcement.

Isnt discipleship is the beginning of discipline?
As for me, I have experienced well enough and I am doing my best to get better.
My question is Are you the same?

God’s Glory in Simple Thoughts

God’s Glory in Simple Thoughts

How do you perceive God’s glory? Is it physical? Spiritual? Or is it something that we just think we can somehow comprehend by feelings?

The glory of God is that the Messiah is a fulfillment of His goodness on earth through grace to save man because He loves us. No one could stand up in His glory because no one is 100% righteous, and without sin. But .. With Yeshua, as God’s glory then you do not have to think or withdraw the old man, through the Son man becomes a new creation. Yeshua is a picture of God’s love for us and on earth. After Yeshua obeyed the Father, the Son could sit in higher hands. I had a thought sometimes that the right side is the most used in royal command and sitting on the right is also an open language that can be said “Now the law applies and now the authority” .. For no one can sit in someone’s chair without permission or command .. With respect to the person who owns the chair and the person to whom you give authority and promotion. 😃

Taken out from a commentary;

“The glory of God” was described in the scriptures as some physical mind, often based on something burning or clouding.

• Deuteronomy 5:24 is called the glory that they could hear God speak from the fire.
• Exodus 24: 15-16 is the “glory” that comes to the mountain with the cloud, and it is the “glory” that calls Moses up to the mountain.
• Exodus 40: 34-35 ‘glory’ fulfilled the tabernacle with a cloud so that Moses could not enter.
• 1Ku 8: 10/2 Cr 7: 1-3 The “glory” fulfilled Solomon’s temple with a cloud and fire so that the priests could not serve.

But then the prophets describe glory as a burning / shining man who speaks to them.

• Exodus 33:18 .. Moses prays to see God’s ‘glory’, and God answers with human descriptions, not to see his face but to see his back.
• Ezekiel 1:28 is the “glory” that speaks to Ezekiel, which he describes as a man who sits on the throne and burns and shines. And it seems that this man / glory is the one who speaks to Ezekiel in the following chapter.
• Ezek 3:23 he meets the same man / glory again, who speaks to him
• Ezek 8: 4 again. Same description
• Isaiah 6: 1-6 Isaiah sees God on the throne and angels speak of how the glory of God fills the earth. And Isaiah writes that the temple is filled with clouds.
• Isaiah 49: 3 God’s servant “Israel”, through whom God will show his glory.Then it continues with a clear connection to the Messiah, who will not only gather Jacob and Israel (the people this time), but become a savior for all nations.
• Isaiah 60:21 links the righteous to the shot (linked to the Messiah, David’s promise) with the glory of God

But also that ‘glory’ fills / should fill the whole earth, sometimes now, sometimes in the future.

• Hab 2:14 knowledge of the glory that water fills the sea
• Psalm 19: 1 the heavens speak of the glory of God
• Exodus 14:21
• Psalm 57: 5
• etc ..

New Testament writings also make the same connections.

• Rev 7: 2 The glory of God spoke to Abraham
• Luke 2: 9 God’s glory to the Gentiles when Yeshua was born
• Mat 17: 5 / Mar 9: 7 / Luke 9:34 A cloud and a voice call Yeshua the Son of God.
• Mar 13:26 / Mat 24:30 / Luke 21:27 Yeshua speaks of the Son of Man coming in clouds with ‘glory’ and power
• Acts 7:55 Stephen sees God’s ‘glory’ and Yeshua to the right of God.
• Heb 1: 1-3 The Son is the light of God’s glory and the exact representative of God’s nature, and sits to his right.
• 2 Co 4: 6 the light of God’s glory is shown in the Messiah
• John 1:14 you see the glory of God in the Word (Messiah)
• Up 21:23 it is the lamb that is the “lamp” to God’s “glory”, which means that the sun is no longer needed.

And seeing glory has to do with faith.

• John 11:40 faith shows glory
• 2 Co 3:18 We see God’s glory as in a mirror, believing in Yeshua, the veil is removed (linked to Isaiah 6) and becomes like Him through the Spirit.
• John 17 throughout the chapter before Yeshua is betrayed, he talks about how the glory of God was from the beginning, displayed in him and then given out to those who believe in him and how believers are the glory that God gave him. (Similar to Isa 60 and Isa 49 link )
• Rom 8:17 participants in the suffering of the Messiah also participate in the glory
• Col 1:27 the knowledge shown through the Messiah is the glory
• Exodus 14:21 Those who did not listen to God after showing their ‘glory’ were not allowed to enter the land.

Guds härlighet är väl att Messias är en uppfyllelse av Hans godhet på jorden genom nåd att frälsa människan för att Han älskar oss. Ingen skulle kunna stå upp i Hans härlighet för det är ingen som är 100% rättfärdig, och utan synd. Men.. Med Yeshua, som Guds härlighet då behöver man inte tänka eller dra tillbaka det gamla människan, genom Sonen människan blir en ny skapelse. Yeshua är en bild av Guds kärlek till oss och på jorden. Efter att Yeshua lydde Fadern då kunde Sonen sitta i högre hand. Jag hade en tanke ibland att höger sida är det mesta sida man använder inom kungliga befallning och att sitta i högra sida är också ett öppet språk som kan menas att “Nu lagen gäller och Nu gäller autoriteten”.. För ingen kan sitta hos någons stol utan tillåtelse eller befall.. Med respekt till den som äger stolen och den personen man ger auktoritet och befordran. 😃

Tagen ifrån en kommentar:

‘Guds härlighet’ beskrevs i skrifterna som någon fysisk sinne, ofta utifrån något brinnande eller moln.

• 5Mos 5:24 kallas härligheten att dom kunde höra Gud tala utifrån elden.
• 2Mos 24:15-16 är det ‘härligheten’ som kommer till berget tillsammans med molnet, och det är ‘härligheten’ som kallar Mose upp till berget.
• 2Mos 40:34-35 ‘härligheten’ uppfylde tabernaklet med ett moln så Mose kunde inte gå in.
• 1Ku 8:10/2 Cr 7:1-3 ‘härligheten’ uppfylde Salomos tempel med ett moln och eld så att prästerna inte kunde tjänstgöra.

Men sedan beskriver profeterna härligheten som en brinnande/lysande människa som talar till dom.

• 2Mos 33:18.. Mose ber att få se Guds ‘härlighet’, och Gud svarar med mänskliga beskrivningar, att inte se ansiktet men att få se ryggen.
• Hes 1:28 är det ‘härligheten’ som talar med Hesekiel, som han beskriver som en människa som sitter på tronen och brinner och lyser.Och det verkar som att det är denna människa/härligheten som är den som talar till Hesekiel i följande kapitel.
• Hes 3:23 träffar han samma människa/härlighet igen, som talar till honom
• Hes 8:4 igen.Samma beskrivning
• Jes 6:1-6 Jesaja ser Gud på tronen och änglar talar om hur Guds härlighet fyller jorden.Och Jesaja skriver att templet fylls med moln.
• Jes 49:3 Guds tjänare “Israel”, genom vem Gud ska visa sin härlighet.Sedan fortsätter det med en tydlig koppling till att handla om Messias, som ska inte bara samla Jacob och Israel (folket denna gången), utan bli en räddning för alla nationer.
• Jes 60:21 kopplar dom rättfärdiga till skottet (kopplad till Messias, Davids löfte) med Guds härlighet

Men också att ‘härligheten’ fyller/ska fylla hela jorden, ibland nu, ibland i framtiden.

• Hab 2:14 kunskap om härligheten, som vatten fyller havet
• Psalm 19:1 himlarna talar om Guds härlighet
• 4Mos 14:21
• Psalm 57:5
• osv..

Nya testamentets skrifter gör också samma kopplingar.

• Ap 7:2 Guds härlighet talade till Abraham
• Lukas 2:9 Guds härlighet till hedarna när Yeshua föds
• Mat 17:5/Mar 9:7/Luk 9:34 Ett moln och en röst kallar Yeshua för Guds son.
• Mar 13:26/Mat 24:30/Luk 21:27 Yeshua talar om Människosonen som kommer i moln med ‘härlighet’ och kraft
• Ap 7:55 Stefanus ser Guds ‘härlighet’ och Yeshua till höger om Gud.
• Heb 1:1-3 Sonen är ljuset av Guds härlighet och exakta representanten av Guds natur, och sitter till hans högra sida.
• 2 Co 4:6 ljuset av Guds härlighet visas i Messias
• Joh 1:14 man ser Guds härlighet i Ordet (Messias)
• Upp 21:23 det är lammet som är ‘lampan’ till Guds ‘härlighet’, som gör så att solen inte längre behövs

Och att se härlighet har med tro att göra.

• Joh 11:40 tro visar härligheten
• 2 Co 3:18 Vi ser Guds härlighet som i en spegel, när man tror på Yeshua, slöjan tars bort (kopplad till Jes 6) och blir likt honom genom anden.
• Joh 17 hela kapitlet innan Yeshua blir förråd talar han om hur Guds härlighet var från början, visas i honom och sedan ges ut till dom som tror på honom och hur troende är härligheten som Gud gav honom.(Liknar Jes 60 och Jes 49 kopplingen)
• Rom 8:17 deltagare i Messias lidande deltar också i härligheten
• Col 1:27 kunskapen visad genom Messias är härligheten
• 4Mos 14:21 dom som inte lyssnade till Gud efter att ha visat sin ‘härlighet’ fick inte komma in i landet

Children today, Our Future for Tomorrow

Famous people are just people and you don’t have to idolize them. You should look for their lifestyle and not how they perform in a scene ..
Be careful to look up famous people who do not give good influence in their surroundings or community. It can be quite harmful even for today’s young people to look up celebrities who are “cool” but disrespectful to their parents and disobey the law. These young people in the scene should be our future. Guide your children by having time with them and teaching them to be a good person for our society. It’s time to think about our future through how we build our children. They are the future .. And we will wither .. For the believing and non-believing people .. Think about it..think how you build your children ..

Kända människor är bara människor och man behöver inte avguda dem. Man ska se efter deras livsstil och inte på hur de uppträder i en scen..
Var försiktigt att se upp kända människor som inte ger någon bra inflytelse i sin omgivning. Det kan vara rätt skadlig även för dagens ungdomar att se upp kändisar som är “coola” men respektlösa mot sina föräldrar och är olydiga mot lagen. Dessa ungdomar i scenen skall vara vår framtid. Vägled era barn genom att ha tid med dem och lär dem att vara en bra människa för vår samhälle. Det är tid att tänka på vår framtid genom hur vi bygger upp våra barn. Dem är framtiden.. Och vi kommer vissna.. För de troende och icke troende folk.. Tänk på det..tänk hur ni bygger upp era barn..

Your fear of God begins in Knowing Him

Your fear of God begins in Knowing Him

Therefore Education and Success has just a place in mankind to be used in service of others and not for own benefits. For in the day of our death, sucess will just be an echoe in the lying bed. In the silence of our bodies, we will not hear the success stories we have done, for God will reveal the true test of our victory.

It is a freedom to know the wisdom of God. And it is unbearable to know it. For by the time you start knowing the wisdom of heaven, you are obliged to perform its duty and to bear the mind of the upright. In wisdom, you shall be fit in mind and even the face of others. For you will always have a watchful eye on you. And these million eyes will never dare to see your good deeds but only sees when you stumble.

Educate yourself therefore with the ways of the Lord. And bring forth your soul to the humility of your heart. Seek the wisdom of God and you will know the fear of the Lord.

Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Proverbs 2:6 For the LORD gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.

Psalm 19:2 Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge.

When big realities is seen in this world and in this generation? After all, theres the wars, murders, thefts, the poor and the poorer in soul, and the ills, and the jealousy and hatred and the groans, and the cries and the dead, are constantly reduced?
And if a man tells me, are you then enlightened and hated by wisdom? Blessed be God for showing me this wisdom. For opening my eyes from slumber of folly and stupidity..
From my childhood to the present, I have loved exploration and observation, for the sake of finding the truth, and for understanding the hidden, and for recognizing the lie and the mistake, and from seeking the truth will never cease my heart. but I have never liked nor enlightened education for my benefit, and to much good and succeed.
And there is no reason, and no advice, that it will be able to save man from any trouble and distress, and give him existing success. Education on earth is fine for the purposes of survival of mankind. And if the claimant continues to argue. And not in the holy language call, success in the name of education, it is clear that success depends on education and intelligence to which I will reply. There is education, and there is education. But as education exist, then man is the more dangerous as he can be. For who would know in the end where the man would lay his learning? Will he serve others or will he benefit himself alone? And there is education, of this world and there is education from the heavens given through the Messenger of God.

May the Lord be merciful to us all.
To the young and old alike.

Right now! Are you satisfied with your life? As of now, are you content with what you have and what you are? Within satisfaction matter, do you envy others and still hungry for what they have?

Contentment in life is a big deal of maturity…

I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:12-13)

I have experienced poverty. I grew up in a family where my parents livelihood were just enough for a days meal.
There were days in my childhood years where I wish towards days of abundance. And it gave me comfort to think that one day, it will be better.
Then there were also days where we have overflowing food and our needs were met.

Then time came, I grew up. Got a job. Friends from different sources and lifestyle have surrounded me.
I was overwhelmed by it. Until I saw many sides of being wealthy.
Even if people are wealthy and lack nothing, surrounded by materialistic world and pleasure. I noticed the sadness in their lives, being able to defend their properties and fear of thieves and shopping was their comfort. The loneliness had become their enemy and discomfort in themselves had become their illness.
Self centered became their primary focus, “I” and “Me” is their ways of thinking and they are filled with lies of living filling themselves with thoughts that somehow it would make them happy. Then they were filled with pride and perversity, speaking of curses towards the poor and the lowly.

I stopped in a minute, and thought. Not so Lord God. I would rather live life that I have now rather than having that sadness in life. Poverty gives possibility of being content in any situation of life. Having self control in attitude and knowing the existence of life through God.
It’s good to have wealth, but it also means of giving and sharing your blessings to those who are need. I saw by my eyes that wealth can be a way of open doors and can even be a way to destruction.
It’s better that my life is easier. My needs are met by God’s riches and wealth. Basic needs are food, shelter and clothing. I have these. And I have my kids and a husband that loves the Lord. I have my family that cares and friends that loves at all times. And most I have the Lord Jesus that loves me and think of me all the time so I didn’t need to worry about anything because I know that by time, God gives according to our capabilities and responsibilities. I am more content both to earthly life and my inner peace is in God’s grace and love.
That my Spiritual life is more important than ever before.
Because I understand that life is very much more important than anything else in these world. Life is precious, every second and minute of it.
I love the Lord God rather than living like a queen. For being a Child of God is a better position rather than titles and career on earth that can’t be taken in heaven.
My soul will then bless the Lord as long as I live. So now you choose which way you place your heart. As it is written:

Matthew 6:19-21Complete Jewish Bible
19 “Do not store up for yourselves wealth here on earth, where moths and rust destroy, and burglars break in and steal. 20 Instead, store up for yourselves wealth in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and burglars do not break in or steal. 21 For where your wealth is, there your heart will be also.

Our thoughts are not His thoughts

Our thoughts are not His thoughts

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11)

We may experience many things that we thought were not relevant to some situations we have. And many times we don’t like the moment or situations we are in but God has a plan that we don’t know. He has His ways to teach us through people that we may learn and gain more experience to be encouraged and to be prepared to the future that awaits us. For who knows what would happen the next day or to the future? Things may change but the fact is that our experiences are one of the things that can bring us to the success and happiness and Contentment in life. We may not understand yet the will of God at the moment but when you reached the top, then you will always look back..and smile. God loves you and God knows what He does with you. And he precisely know what you can and what is ahead of you. Just be patient and be calm.

Modest or Overly Dressed?

Modest or Overly Dressed?

Maybe they just thought I was behind the times or thoroughly overdressed? Or that sometimes they thought i looked so old in the dress, or some comments that I dont know how to buy modern ones to get along with the fashion… But who cares..?

In this times, we often are good at dressing to stand out the crowd. What in should be in our wardrobes, and we tend to make fun of people who dont get “in”.

Or sometimes, we mostly try to find our identification in the clothes that we wear. Which mostly can be misunderstood by people or trigger people to comment. And this gratification makes us somewhat to feel important. Can’t we not just dress modestly without the comments of others? Cant we just dress decency without provocative body language?

You can be very well dressed and yet your manners don’t have any connections to your fashion. Or you can be less-dress i suppose, yet your integrity is well respected.

As I went through and read other beneficial articles about torah women.. I stumbled in this article on chabad. And I would like to share it with you.

I have found a message by Ilene Rosenblum at Chabad.

Adam and Eve were initially able to perceive that the soul is the essence of a person, and the body is but a tool. There was no shame, and therefore no need for clothing. Since their sin, mankind has become easily misled by judging people by what they see on the outside. And that’s where my dilemma comes in.

Individuals though we may claim to be, in all places on earth where people have enough resources to actually choose what they want to wear, few people make that decision truly independently. In high school, dress code identifies whether you’re a “skater,” “goth,” or “preppy.” Later on, clothing makes a statement about profession or the economic class a person is in (or wishes they could be in). Perhaps because it’s all so new, the stakes here seem higher.

Dressing up is a respect to ones self. To give one a covering for protection in keeping something you dont want to show to everyone else.. And no matter what you wear, don’t be swallowed by the lifestyle. Wear a respectable clothing.. You are not obliged to stand out the crowd…
Just be godly and wear holiness in you. Remember that Yeshua came and were not royally dressed but brough down the spiritual clothing to redeem us all. Let’s all come to conclusions.. Let dress up decently and dont mind other people’s ways of dressing… One day.. They’ll also learn along the journey…

On your way to the lawyer, court proceedings or maybe just to report injustice you’ve experienced or witness.. You might be afraid, you might be anxious. But the Lord said, do not be silent in injustice and show yourself courageous to fight for what is right. Wait.. Wait for Him… It will come in perfect time.. But be prepared.. And settle yourself..

I would give an advice to people who have been into a violent situations before. Or maybe you are under the control of that violence right now. I know that cowards has been abusing you for your weakness but do not see yourself as lower than what the oppressor is implicating on you. Those words you’ve heard all these years, those beatings you’ve experienced. All of the people that left you alone to fight.. Those had left you scars, don’t worry now… You have survived them all! See! You are still here! You are meant to make it. Because you are strong… Believe me.. God made you stronger than what you can imagine…

I speak from experience.. I was a victim of rape, molestation and violent related issues within relationship. But most of all, I guess the part that I felt more victimised was the emotions, my self-esteem, integrity, my trust towards others and my behaviour towards the outside world. All these years, I spent myself being afraid, i soent myself coping with the thought that I can never get help and I can never move on.

The best thing to start with is..

  • Pray. All things.
  • To accept the things as they are.
  • To acknowledge that they already happened
  • Never argue with yourself anymore
  • Believe that you will overcome this situation you are facing right now.
  • Remove the people that puts you down. No matter how much it hurts, if they dont help you up but discourage you, it will become your worst scenario.
  • It may take time they say, But it is easier to FORGIVE. Without any questions of why and how.. Do not expect. Imagine.. will you wait for years and within those years, are you going to bear all the hurt and will you be under the power of hate until your health and psychological well-being will be at stake? Are you going to wait before you forgive? Let it go. Set yourself free. Its best for you.
  • Stand for what is right. Search for possible things that would help you find justice.
  • Be patient. Be kind. Be honest. And be brave. Have faith and be hopeful.

The table is empty and chairs are in place. The complaints are restrained and the defender has not yet arrived.

In the thoughts of the oppressed many questions are asked. Many things has to be laid upon the empty table and tears may fell unwarned. But emotions must be put aside and put herself back together to speak right.

On this empty table, the tension will become apparent. But as you pack yourself into the truth, you will have peace while you wait for absolute help. Justice has mercy, it may take a while. The waiting can be so long when you didn’t t had the strength to move on.

Imagine the years that took you before you came here today. It was good you never took justice in your hands but with a restless heart you still had hope that all will be in its place. God had placed authorities to pursue your rights. The states and its branches are under God’s law. They will not be blind for unrighteousness because you are seeking for what is right.

Never think in a second to give up. If you are experiencing difficulties right niw ubder a process.. Keep on. Keep fighting and set your mind on the heavenly things. It might take time to heal but the main process is to go against the nature of injustice. Your injury will get healed in its time and you will be able to stand again. In God’s grace you will be given the strength to start again.. Afresh.

Be patient…. Justice will be served!

Words to Give to Believers

Words to Give to Believers

God is beautiful! God delivers us from different kinds of pain, trials, and wilderness! Life is up and down. In it, God demonstrate His love as He teaches patience, kindness, understanding and honesty and truth. Life is not dramatic if you would learn from every step and be observant in every aspect of God’s perspective. He would learn you to keep down your selfishness and act in reliance to the Holy Spirit and mold you into the likeness of Jesus Christ.
Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you’ll look back and realize they were big things.
Nevertheless, be thankful for ups and downs, for when you look back, you will be thankful those days are over and have taught you well. For God does not make mistakes. He straightens the path of those who love His commands. Enjoy life! And don’t be exaggerated to take away your joy. It is our reward under the sun.
Be responsible for your freedom. Do not forget who you were when you were not in Jesus Christ, let it be shown to men and in the sight of God that you are blameless, approvable in all your manners and ways. That you may gain the crown of life. Do not live like the world.
But never forget, now that you are God’s children, and now Jesus is your master. In every steps, always give God the glory and Honor. Let your ways be blameless and be clean in your integrity. For in God’s time, you will face judgement in the sight of God being responsible of your own deeds. Be not like the world. – Karla Rochelle –

“And it is a good thing to receive wealth from God and the good health to enjoy it. To enjoy your work and accept your lot in life–this is indeed a gift from God.”

Be content with what you have
Enjoy what you have rather than desiring what you don’t have. Just dreaming about nice things is meaningless–like chasing the wind.
Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content.

Be different from the world.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
For “Whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit;
You who are young, be happy while you are young, and let your heart give you joy in the days of your youth. Follow the ways of your heart and whatever your eyes see, but know that for all these things God will bring you into judgment.
So I concluded there is nothing better than to be happy and enjoy ourselves as long as we can. And people should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of their labor, for these are gifts from God.
So I decided there is nothing better than to enjoy food and drink and to find satisfaction in work. Then I realized that these pleasures are from the hand of God. For who can eat or enjoy anything apart from him?
Enjoy life with your wife, whom you love, all the days of this meaningless life that God has given you under the sun–all your meaningless days. For this is your lot in life and in your toilsome labor under the sun.

I Grew Each Passing Day

I Grew Each Passing Day

I grew more with my walk with the Lord every day and i experienced that i learned little better in time

Serving God in daily basis is indeed a marriage of the spiritual life

I indeed realise as along the way when we learned a lot… We becoming wise and as a part of heavenly wisdom.. We dont tend to be offended on things that mlstly many are annoyed at. I looked at it usually now and make sure I do what is good. As proverbs 16.24 says a righteous person falls 7 times. Then gets up again. But the wicked falls when calamity comes.
They easily give up

As for now i still work with my emotions towards certain things. And i try to manage my heart more than anything else because it is there where the Instructions of God shall reside. In my soul I do not want to hate a brother. But my heart shall decide for its actions and thats the only part I can discipline…

I try my best to work it out especially recently when i had a bad situation in my past marriage. I heard I had demons and as my problems couldn’t resolve, they have baked more demons instead of helping me out. I had no parental guidance in sweden and the only help i expected was with the company within the faith. Yet they hurt me. Yet I did my very best to not take it to heart. And i did my best not to be a madman. I cried and was deeply embarrassed. Yes i got discouraged, i got disappointed. But only for a while. I think that i want to spend my time believing that things will turn out good despite of trials. Im proud I kept my mouth speaking evil things and slipping nonsense. I did not complain. I did not provoke any. I did not backbite. I kept in heart hid my tears and God is patient with me.

In understanding I grew. Im proud spiritually that I didnt made my eyes sin. I kept My lips and my mind from sin in the middle of disappointments and trials.

It is indeed true, that keeps those whose eyes are on Him. And it is indeed important to keep your trust in Him in the midst of difficulties. For one day, the Lord will bring peace. And in peace within yourself, God brings solutions to situations you are facing. Be Still and Know He is your God.

What?? Once Saved Always Saved?

What?? Once Saved Always Saved?

One of the core teachings of Christianity is that we need to have faith in order to be saved. But what kind of faith saves us?

What is it that we have to be saved from?
Sins? Eternal damnation? Destruction?

In this study we’re going to discuss how we know we’re saved.

To do this, we’re going to look at three examples of people in the Bible who mistakenly thought they were saved, ( see Romans 5:9 ) see why they were wrong, and from that learn how we can know we’re saved.

Mistake #1 – Believing you’re saved because of your tradition

“Jesus said to them, ‘If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and I am here. Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear my word. You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires.’” – John 8:42-44
Our first example comes from a heated exchange between Jesus and the scribes and Pharisees — the religious leaders of their day. Jesus tells them that He speaks the words of His Father, while they speak the words of their father, the devil.

These religious people felt they were saved because of their bloodline and because of the traditions they followed. They felt these things made God their Father. Many people believe this today. They feel because they were raised in a Christian home, or because they attend a church, they’re saved.

But Jesus refutes this by saying, “If God were your Father, you would love me…” The requirement for being a child of God is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Notice two things:

1) Notice that Jesus says “you”. Not your parents, or friends or your church but “you”. No one can have a relationship on our behalf. You alone must put your trust in Him to be saved.

2) Notice that Jesus says “me”. It’s not where you were born, or what church you attend that makes you a child of God. It’s a belief and a trust that Christ came from the Father to pay for your sins (John 3:16). John 1:12 tells us that “all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.”

Let’s look at our second example.

Mistake #2 – Believing you’re saved because of your behavior

Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I get.’

But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’ I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”- Luke 18:10-14
Our next example comes from a parable Jesus told. Here we find that the Pharisee thinks he’s saved because of his good behavior. This is probably the reason most people today believe they’re saved. Most people feel that they’ve lived good lives.

But Jesus refutes this by telling us that it’s not the Pharisee who is justified (declare innocent from sin), but the tax collector. To be justified Jesus tells us we must be humble about our condition. We must realize we’ve sinned and call on God to forgive us.

Notice two things:

1) Notice that the Pharisee compared his behavior to the tax collector.

2) Notice that the tax collector compared his behavior to God.

The tax collector did the right thing because Romans 3:23 tells us that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” It’s “the glory of God” that we fall short of. Our behavior is compared to God — not other people — and all of us fall short when held to this standard. But Romans 3:24 tells us that we can be saved because we’re “justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.”

Let’s look at one final example.

Mistake #3 – Believing you’re saved because of your works or deeds

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’” – Matthew 7:21-23
In our final example we find Jesus talking about who will be able to enter the kingdom of heaven. Here we find people who believe they’re saved because of good works they do. Again this is something many people do today.

Jesus refutes this by saying that He won’t accept their works. As we mentioned in our last example, God’s glory is the standard we’re held to, and it’s perfect. So unless our offering is perfect, it falls short of His glory. When we try to offer good deeds to atone for our sins, God rejects that because the sacrifice is stained with sin, and falls short of His glory.

Jesus says that only those who do the will of His Father will enter the kingdom. What is His will? “He commands all people everywhere to repent.” (Acts 17:30) What does it mean to repent? It means to turn from sin, to Christ.

Where our works are stained with sin and rejected, Christ’s sacrifice on the cross is perfect and is accepted. When we repent and come to Christ to be our Savior it means we’re relying on His sacrifice to make peace with God on our behalf. When we do this God credits Christ’s perfection to us and we are justified.

How are we saved?

In this study we’ve looked at people who mistakenly thought they were saved because of their tradition, behavior or good works. Each example had one thing in common: Each tried to obtain salvation through their own strength and fell short.

God gives us salvation through His Son. Our salvation isn’t based on what we’ve done, it’s based on what Christ has done. We know we’re saved when we know we trust in Christ completely for our salvation.

Verses to remember

— 36 “Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.”

37 Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?”

38 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.” -Acts 2:36-38

– “By grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.” (Eph 2:8)

– “This is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life.” (1 John 5:11-13)

– He is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them. (Heb 7:25)
