Иисус сказал: «Я и Отец - одно! Кто видел Меня, тот видел и Отца!» И, если наше представление и мнение по поводу Бога расходятся с тем, что мы видим в писании по поводу Иисуса, то у нас огромная проблема!!! Скорее всего, мы придумали себе идола и назвали его богом. Это беда. Это дорога из жизни в пустоту. Надо отвернуться от этого представления о Боге и посмотреть на Иисуса. Иисус - это истина об Отце. О том, какой на самом деле Бог! Да не будет других богов пред лицем Твоим!
When we SLOW down, we get there faster. No forcing, only flow. Get out of the exhausting energy of overthinking! Trust.
We live our way daily into the answers. God sends signs, wonders, people, coincidences. We do not have to stumble in the darkness of confusion. Once our hearts ask the question, we can rest and make room for the answer.
SLOW down. Breathe. Meditate. Pray. Engage the beauty of silence, stillness and solitude. The answers you seek are seeking you. Trust. Wisdom is always available. Relax. Allow. Receive. Exhale. #growth#sagewisdom#intuition#holyspirit#patience#faith
"Two men who literally begged us to come, enter their home and share the Word with them. Our team had visited their hut the day before but because they were not present, they requested that we PLEASE spend time with them and the others within the house that had not heard our message. What an awesome time of encouraging each other in the Lord we had with these men!! They even took notes as our team spoke to them- precious!! One of them had lost his entire family, all his brothers and sisters, and was left to raise ALL of their children, by HIMSELF- something he counted as a privilege and honor- and firmly believed that God had spared HIS life, protected and healed him many times, that he might be there for these children- and raise them in righteousness! How awesome!!" - Tricia Brown, Expeditions Director
Lembro de um dia que imensa agonia por mim você chamou
Estavas tão sozinhos em um estreito caminho, há como você chorou.
Ninguém ficou contigo, fui eu o teu amigo quando a amargura tomou teu ser
Fui teu pai, teu amigo, tua família e teu abrigo.
Por isso que eu conheço você.
Alma had lived a wicked life as one of King Noah's hypocritical priests, until he listened to the words of the prophet Abinadi and the Holy Ghost testified of the truth of his words. He repented and became a strong disciple and important part of building Heavenly Father's kingdom.
Heavenly Father did not care where Alma had been or what he had done in the past. Heavenly Father saw his potential, saw what he could be. Likewise, He does not see failure when He looks upon us, as we might when we look at ourselves. Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ see us for our potential, and the amazing perfect persons that we could be. And they want so much to help us become that person. Let them help you to reach your divine potential. ❤ ❤ ❤
God has just revealed to me this revelation that this "Free gift" is one of the GREATEST GIFTS one could ever receive. This gift is the Holy Spirit. In order to receive the Holy Spirit as revealed to me by Bishop Julio Freitas, is by doing 3 things:
1. Having realised you have filled yourself will negativity - grudges, anger, hatred, doubts, etc. It is time that you empty yourself of all evil & allow the Holy Spirit to dwell inside of you. "Oh but why can't I just hold on to that one grudge?? Oh but they don't deserve forgiveness!! You have no idea just how much they hurt me!!" Remember that light and darkness cannot mix, it cannot be light AND dark at the same time. Light being God & darkness being the devil.
2. You must strive to think like how God thinks. - dwell on His promises as much as possible, when evil thoughts come, rebuke them and allow Gods strength to manifest itself within you so that you can persistently avoid evil and sin.
3. Concern yourself with the work and things of God. - Have that ambition to serve God, the ambition to reach out to the lost souls, the ambition to show compassion and love to what the world considers as "the least of all people". Once you have done all of these 3 things, you will receive God's GREATEST gift - the Holy Spirit - which will of course give you the assurance of your salvation and you will no longer be afraid of death & in a chaotic world like this ... rest assured in Jesus' name you will receive peace. Stay blessed & stay tuned for my next post. #holyspirit#newlife#freshstart#uckguk#salvation#heaven#eternety
Yep, this is how I was feeling yesterday. I know I'm not alone, and I know #God is still here with me. The Spirit dropped this little nugget on me during a #conversation I was in the midst of; the #HolySpirit can #minister any time, any where, no notice required, and I'm glad about it! Growing up, when my father was alive, he was the chef in our home; we could not get up from the table until we ate every bite, whether we liked the food or not. This habit has followed me through adulthood, and by Kaiser's standards, I'm not only overweight, I'm obese, but hey, that's a different conversation! Soooo...How many of us have also adopted this as an emotional habit: Taking on more than we can truly bear at once, seeing the results of it, and still, we just can't and won't stop. I watched my mom do this, and I know she wasn't happy about it; she deserved more. Our hearts and minds are heavy: Overweight! It's time to re-evaluate. It's time to fall on our face before the Lord and cry out for #comfort , #discipline , #guidance and plain ol' #HELP ! #SOS , Lord! We have to learn when #enoughisenough , and we have to learn to be content with enough. Will you join me? 🙏🏼🦋 #shhh
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
1 Corinthians 13:4-5
The 1st sermon preached on 22 April 2017 during my mission trip in a village near Bitung town, Sulawesi island, Indonesia, was about "the Judgement Seat of Christ" as written in Revelation 20:11-15:
Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. AND THE DEAD WERE JUDGED ACCORDING TO THEIR WORKS, BY THE THINGS WHICH WERE WRITTEN IN THE BOOKS. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. AND THEY WERE JUDGED, EACH ONE ACCORDING TO HIS WORKS. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. AND ANYONE NOT FOUND WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE WAS CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE (Revelation 20:11-15)
The congregation were reminded to walk in the "narrow path" in total repentance, Spirit-led holiness and love-driven obedience to God's Word in light of the forthcoming ending after their mortal lives end that they must be ready to stand before the judgement seat of Christ in front the Righteous Judge and be held accountable for the deeds done in their bodies.
Many rebels were warned that they all shall give account for those rebellious, filthy and worldly deeds done in their bodies, profane and vain evil words they spoke, wicked thoughts in their minds, such godless things that they have not repented of. There is no rehearsal, no court of appeal after it, no second chance or redeeming grace or mercy left. All must stand before His holy eyes and many will end up in hell due their unrepentant rebellious lives, filthy, sinful and worldly lifestyle.
For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. And narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it (Matthew 7:13-14)
Repent. Repent. Repent before its too late.
The University of Texas El Paso Baptist Student Ministry (@UTEP_BSM) has attended Beach Reach in South Padre Island for eight years. Here are a couple of their personal testimonies:
"During Beach Reach, I was blessed beyond what I can imagine. It was a week of sharing the Gospel, building relationships and prayer, and I had the privilege of leading two girls to Christ, which I never thought I’d be able to do.”
My heart breaks for the people on this island that are convinced by evil. Our time in South Padre slowly came to an end, but our mission to share how Jesus changed our lives by living a perfect life doesn’t end.”

#TheBible Here's how it was explained to me: "Let's say it's the first day of school. You and your best friend are in this class. The teacher places this giant packet on everyone's desks. He says 'I won't be taking any grades this year. Your grade for this class depends on one test. It can be given at anytime throughout the year, and all the answers are in this packet. It could be tomorrow, it could be next week, it could be the last day of school!' Now you'd wanna study every word of this packet wouldn't you? But let's say you think to yourself "eh, I got time" and *maybe* you skim over a couple of the questions. But then the test is given the next day. You didn't study. Your best friend studied however, he is prepared. Wouldn't you want to be prepared?" The Day and the Hour is unknown. Time is short. Read your Bible, friends. Get saved 🙏🏻
