- "Mas como está escrito: Nem olhos viram, nem ouvidos ouviram, nem jamais penetrou em coração humano o que Deus tem preparado para aqueles que o amam." 1 Corintios 2:9. Essa é uma das grandes e maiores promessas que o Senhor fez para nós, os que cremos. Certo Pastor, estava dizendo em uma de suas pregações que se pudéssemos abrir um pouquinho, um pouquinho só "a cortina", para contemplarmos o que o Senhor tem reservado para nós os cristãos, uma alegria imensa, contagiante, apossaria de nós de tal maneira que ficaríamos desesperadamentes ansiosos pela volta de Jesus! Que coisa maravilhosa, não é mesmo?! Nós não sabemos que dia há de vim o nosso Senhor... Mas, sabemos que Ele tem grandes promessas de bênçãos para nós. "Mas sede fortes e não desfaleçam as vossas mãos, porque a vossa obra terá recompensa." 2 Crônicas 15:7. Devemos sim confiar, e ficar bem quietinho no colo do Pai, na certeza de que, o que Ele prometeu, Ele vai cumprir! Amados irmãos, não desistam, não retrocedam, Deus tem algo muito lindo, preparado pra vocês! Que possamos continuar olhando para a Cruz de Cristo, assim como Moisés levantou a serpente no deserto e todos os que olhavam para a serpente eram curados de suas enfermidades, assim nos dias de hoje, importa que olhemos firmementes para a Cruz de Cristo, para que possamos naquele grande Dia, alcançarmos as promessas, tendo os nossos nomes escritos no Livro da Vida, e assim, entrarmos na Cidade pelas portas, a nova Canaã Celestial, preparada para todos aqueles que tiveram suas vestiduras lavadas no Sangue do Cordeiro! Todavia, Jesus não mudou, as Suas promessas não mudaram, a Sua Palavra continua imutável, Jesus breve voltará, e levará consigo os seus eleitos e habitaremos para sempre com o Senhor! "Jesus Cristo é o mesmo ontem, hoje e eternamente." Hebreus 13:5. Amém?!

Just received my first wax seal set today as a Christmas gift from a colleague and rushed home to try it out. LOVE the effect and that Gold wax on Maroon contrast. I'm addicted.
Until now, I have been wondering why Krishna's name did not appear in Jerusalem after his arrival there. Yet, the name of the king of Jerusalem, Melchizedek, the mentor of Abraham, did. I once thought that Melchizedek was the name of a certain person. I made this mistake by thinking that a prince and a son of a Kassite king, Melik-Sadaksina, was a supernaturally endowed prince, magician and spiritual giant. I thought he had accompanied Krishna, Abraham, and Sarah to the Middle East. Later on, I came to realize that the Sanskrit word Sadhaka applies to anyone who is an adept, a magician, one possessed of supernatural powers gained by worshipping a deity or by uttering magical chants.
I have additionally shown in this article that the New Testament words for Jesus all refer to Lord Krishna and his holy names.
Jadi, contoh angin adalah Yesus.
Filipi 2:5-8 (TB)
5 Hendaklah kamu dalam hidupmu bersama, menaruh pikiran dan perasaan yang terdapat juga dalam Kristus Yesus,
6 yang walaupun dalam rupa Allah, tidak menganggap kesetaraan dengan Allah itu sebagai milik yang harus dipertahankan,
7 melainkan telah mengosongkan diri-Nya sendiri, dan mengambil rupa seorang hamba, dan menjadi sama dengan manusia.
8 Dan dalam keadaan sebagai manusia, Ia telah merendahkan diri-Nya dan taat sampai mati, bahkan sampai mati di kayu salib.
Yesus menghampakan diri sampai mati di kayu salib sehingga menjadi utusan dari sorga--angin dari sorga yang ditiupkan ke bumi ini, untuk memberikan kehidupan, keharuman, dan kesegaran kepada manusia di dunia yang dikuasai setan untuk menuju kebinasaan:
(1). Yesus meniupkan angin kehidupan karena bumi ini sudah mati oleh dosa, dipengaruhi setan, tidak ada kehidupan, dan semua mati di dalam dosa.
(2). Yesus meniupkan angin keharuman karena bumi sudah busuk--perempuan Samaria sudah lima kali kawin cerai dan berikutnya tidak ada ikatan lagi. Sudah busuk, belum lagi dosa makan minum.
(3). Yesus meniupkan angin kesegaran karena bumi sudah kering, letih lesu, beban berat, susah payah, air mata.
Yesus lahir dari air dan Roh; Ia dibaptis dalam air lalu keluar dari air dan Ia menerima Roh Kudus. Ia bisa menghampakan diri; sebenarnya Yohanes tidak mau membaptis Yesus, tetapi Ia berkata: Lakukan kehendak Allah!
Yesus juga adalah firman--'pada mulanya adalah firman (Yohanes 1)'--; bejana tanah liat tetapi diisi firman pengajaran sehingga bisa taat sampai mati di kayu salib--kita taat sampai daging tidak bersuara.

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33)
This has become a favorite memory verse for millions and has even been set to music by a number of artists. Indeed, its truth is of foundational importance. Let us look with care at what it says.
First, notice that the tense of the verb “seek” in Greek implies a command to establish an ongoing habit or lifestyle of “seeking” the things of the kingdom. We are commanded to put first things first on a continual basis and watch Him take care of the items of secondary interest.
We should strive to make His priorities our priorities—to so mold our thinking by the Word of God that we think as He does on every issue. Our lives should exhibit the purity and righteousness that He exhibited when on Earth. While it is true that we will never fully achieve such perfection this side of heaven, we should be striving, i.e., “seeking,” to do so by the power of His Spirit living in us.
The chapter surrounding today’s verse is permeated by the concept of proper priorities in relation to pride (vv. 5-8, 16-18), treasures on Earth (vv. 19-21), singleness of purpose (vv. 22-23), serving two masters (v. 24), or anxious thoughts about the future (vv. 25-32, 34). Remember, “your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things” (v. 32).
If we reverse the proper order, not only will we not attain kingdom priorities and His righteousness, but we will probably miss the secondary “things” as well. The word “added,” a mathematical word, implies the prior existence of something to which other things can be added.
Surely in our “seeking” we should also adopt the prayer Jesus taught His disciples: “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven” (v. 10).

Mengikut Misa Minggu Advent IV & Hari Raya Natal.
Malam Natal tahun 2017 ini jatuh pada hari Minggu, dan banyak umat bertanya-tanya, apakah bisa mengikuti 1 Misa saja, atau harus mengikuti 2 Misa?.
Jawabannya adalah: Umat diwajibkan untuk mengikuti kedua Misa, yakni Misa Minggu Adven IV (Sabtu sore 23 Desember 2017 dan Minggu pagi/siang 24 Desember 2017 dan juga Misa Natal (Minggu malam 24 Desember 2017 dan Senin 25 Desember 2017).
Tujuan utama dari sebuah kewajiban mengikuti Misa Mingguan dan Hari Raya adalah untuk memanggil umat beriman untuk merayakan dimensi tertentu dari misteri Kristus dan Gereja-Nya. Karena kewajiban melekat pada misteri khusus yang dirayakan, tidak mungkin memenuhi dua kewajiban (Minggu Adven IV dan Hari Raya Natal) dalam satu perayaan.
Dari segi “Berapa kali seseorang bisa menerima komuni?” Jawabannya dua kali bila anda mengikuti Misa pagi untuk Minggu Adven IV dan salah satu Misa malam untuk Hari Raya Natal, tidak ada masalah dalam menerima komuni pada keduanya.
Bagi mereka yang mungkin berpikir bahwa satu Misa cukup bagus, saya hanya mengundang Anda untuk merenungkan kenyataan Ekaristi sebagai “hadiah” bukan sekedar “persyaratan”. Bukan karena kita perlu membuktikan diri kita kepada Tuhan melalui “pergi ke Gereja,” tetapi karena Ekaristi kudus adalah pemberian hidup kekal Allah.
Demikian juga, partisipasi kita dalam kehidupan kekal bergantung pada kesetiaan kita kepada Tuhan di dunia ini sampai akhir – sama seperti kehidupan duniawi kita bergantung pada pernapasan kita yang terus-menerus.

Ripping someone to shreds with your tongue, and then feeling justified as if you've done God a favor because you conclude your venomous sprewing with the words, "You know I'm saying this because I love you..." does not equate to LOVE! It certainly does not mean you were motivated by LOVE. .
LOVE covers, builds, restores, heals, mends, corrects, and even challenges. It does not abuse, batter, demean, wound, or kill. We've got to step our love talk/walk up. Lord help us! The world will KNOW us by our LOVE for each other. #ImEnough#TheImEnoughExperience#PastorDemetriaJChilds
Good morning beautiful wonder! This morning I was thinking about Alice in wonderland the Disney version. We all know the story. Alice chases a rabbit down a hole and ends up in a place called Wonderland. She falls downward and lands in a bizarre place of wonderful confusion. Her whole goal during this journey was to catch the white rabbit. I thought to myself, "You did all of this for a rabbit running around saying he was late for an important date?" Alice wonders through judgement, fear, and uncertain grounds. Once she finds the rabbit she found that the company he kept wasn't the best influence. She didn't act according to their standard so they pursued her head saying, "Off with her head!" She ran for her life hurting and scared. She wakes to her mothers voice with a sigh of relief. How many times have we fallen down holes chasing our own white rabbits? We all fall into similar journeys. Through her journey she became brave and strong. Through her journey she gained knowledge and her compassion was strengthened. We all fall but through the fall we experience life lessons. Others have stories that teach us. Wonderland wasn't a bad place but a wonderful adventure of bravery. You are a wonderland of strength and bravery! You are a destined experience of wonder and light. It's the wonderland you experienced that made you even more wonderful! We may chase rabbits but God always wakes with His loving voice. He is with us through it all and gives us strength and valor. He's always leading us through the dark back into His hopeful embrace.
Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest. #bible#truth

Through the book of 2 Timothy we have seen Paul give Timothy lots of instruction. This Sunday we read that Paul had a tough message for Timothy, and for us. Ministry is hard and it is painful, but even in the times of darkness, we have a Savior who will rescue us. Jesus will rescue us!

DECEMBER 13 - John 1:9-18
“That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.
He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.’”
And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him. 80302
