Paul the Apostle (AD 5 – AD 67; variously referred to as the Apostle Paul or Saint Paul ), also known as Saul of Tarsus, is perhaps the most influential early Christian missionary.

Preaching at the St Paul`s Cathedral - Seychelles 25/01/2015 Wow wow wow, what a great welcome at the St Paul Cathedral in Victoria - Seychelles. The Theme was based on the significance and celebration of the Conversion of the Apostle Paul according to Acts 9:1-22 I focussed on the letter that Paul wrote to Philemon regarding Onesimus the run away slave that became a brother to Paul. He appealed to Philemon on the basis of love to receive Onesimus back not as a slave but as a dear brother. In the past he was useless to Philemon. In fact the meaning of Onesimus is useful. Verse 17 " If you consider me as a partner, welcome him as you would welcome me" I encourage the Seychelles believers, those present and those who listened on air, to reach out to the offenders and ex offenders without condemnation but with the love of God. We also need to support the victims of crime. We should not see them as outcast but love them with the love of God. The prayer of Penitence was so appropriate: "Lord Jesus, in your Joy ...
Living A Vitctorious Life "But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a cast away" (1 Cor.9:27). We cannot afford to live a careless life no matter how spiritual we might be. For many years, I find it difficult to understand why Apostle Paul uttered such a statement like this. There is a need to for us to make a deliberate and conscious effort to guard against anything that is capable of stripping us of our hope that is in Jesus Christ. Writing to the believers in Rome, he enjoined them not to make provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lust thereof. Just as God could'nt get us saved until we made a deliberate effort to turn away from our sins, He cannot keep us in holiness until we make up our minds to live for Him. God can keep us from temptation, but He won't come down to turn the channel of your television to stop you from watching those dirty films and musics. He won't shut your eyes from watching an immorally dre ...
via whatsapp Complain and Remain, Praise and Be Raised Complaining is a sin! It is a corrupt form of conversation that causes many people a great deal of problems in their lives. It also opens many doors for the enemy. Words are containers of power. Complaining, grumbling words carry destructive power. They destroy the joy of the one doing the complaining and can also affect other people who have to listen to them. In Ephesians 4:29, the apostle Paul instructs us not to use any foul or polluting language. At one time I would not have known that included complaining, but now I have learned that it does. Murmuring and complaining pollute our lives and probably sound like cursing to the Lord. To Him it is verbal pollution. To pollute is to poison. Did you ever stop to think that you and I can poison our future by complaining about what is going on right now? When we complain about our current situation, we remain in it; when we praise God in the midst of difficulty, He raises us out of it. The best way to st ...
A Place To Belong "Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others" (Rom. 12: 4 & 5). During my sermon yesterday morning, after running off a list of superlatives about why we have hope in our Lord, I exclaimed, "But that's not all!" It reminded a lot of us of the early morning "pitchmen" on TV. You know the ones I'm talking about, don't you? The exercise machine that will get you "ripped" in six weeks or maybe the miracle tool ($19.95) that will replace every other one in your toolbox.

Around the globe, Hindus, Buddhists, Catholics, and members of the Orthodox Church view the use of idols, images, or icons as a vital part of their worship. In parts of Africa, people venerate carvings of wood or stone in which a god or the spirit of a god is thought to dwell. In contrast, Jehovah’s Witnesses do not use any form of idol or icon in their worship. If you visit the places where they meet, known as Kingdom Halls, you will find neither icons of “saints” nor statues of Jesus or Mary.* Why not? Note what the Bible says on this subject. What Did God Require of the Israelites? After liberating the Israelites from Egypt, Jehovah God gave them clear direction regarding how he wanted to be worshipped. The second of the so-called Ten Commandments says: “You must not make for yourself a carved image or a form like anything that is in the heavens above or that is on the earth underneath or that is in the waters under the earth. You must not bow down to them nor be induced to serve them, because ...
On fog: I'm currently in Ellensburg, Washington. It's nighttime. I'm on my way home from visiting with my daughter and her family who live in Walla Walla, WA. About 40 miles back I went through the city of Yakima. A few miles outside of town I ran into some dense fog as I started climbing a hill up a winding highway. I could only see about 100 feet in front of me, and of course I had to slow way down as I passed the big trucks going slow in the right lane. There were times when I could barely see the white lines marking my lane. As you can imagine there were times of doubt and uncertainty. Doubts created because I couldn't be completely confident I wasn't going to run into something. And this doubt and uncertainty led to tension I could feel in my gut. But then as I approached the summit, all of a sudden it was as if someone flipped a switch. The fog suddenly and completely disappeared. I could see car taillights miles ahead of me, and the stars in the sky were clear as a bell against the dark night sky. ...
Sunday, January 25, 2015 TOPIC: Sweet Repose For The Christ-Like TEXT: 2 CORINTHIANS 2:1-11 Key Verse: “So that contrariwise ye ought rather to forgive him, and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow” (2 Corinthians 2:7). The penitentiary, that is, the prison, is meant to correct the ills of society. Statistics reveal that instead of rehabilitating offenders, jail terms in prisons tend to harden the majority of criminals. They come out of prisons worse than they went in because of their belief that the society hated them for even sending them to jail. In the Corinthian church, indiscipline became commonplace to the point of destroying the very spiritual fabric of the church. Apostle Paul, as the supervising shepherd of the church, provided a remedy by the excommunication of a member who was found guilty of fornication. Although this particular member repented of his sin, he was left in the cold. Apostle Paul had to write this second epistle that superceded his ...
"We can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God." --St. Paul the Apostle
It does not matter where u start in life just finish big and strong in the Lord. Moses was a stutter God made him a prophet. Apostle Paul was short ,yet a giant in the Lord. The boy with two fish and 5 loaves of bread was used by the Lord to create a buffet in the desert. Benny Hinn was a stutter yet many miracles God uses him for. Joseph Prince a stutter yet he preaches and leads many to Christ. Jesus born in a manager, mocked, treated like a thief, blood poured out worse than animal yet, now He is risen He is King of All. Where did u start? It does not matter Jesus loves u. Holy Ghost loves u, the Father loves u. Let Him take ur small and make it grand. Love u all. Holy Ghost be with u. Jesus is coming soon!!
This is the great transition a radical changes of God's plan and purpose IN CHRIST before the foundation of the world. From a created being to a born again in the Spirit being. From born of the flesh to a born of the Spirit. From born of man to born of God. From Adam to Christ as the Head. From temporal creation to a birthed sons of God eternal. From earthly to heavenly. From natural to supernatural. From flesh passed away to Spirit will live forever in Christ. The IN CHRIST is the final Planned of God even before the foundation of the world. The "the Christ in us,the hope of glory"is the FINAL GOSPEL OF Jesus Christ apostle Paul commissioned by the risen Lord to preach in his day. God is now establishing eternal beings in Christ,immortal beings in Christ,and incorruptible beings in Christ. From temporal to eternal. From mortal to immortal. From corruptible to incorruptible. We will all pass through the hands of God for the second time.But this time He will enter into our inmost spirit being and rebirthed ...

CARNAL MIND IS ENERMY TO GOD'S LAW AND CARNALLY MINDED IS DEATH Isaiah 59:1-2 1 Behold, the Lord'S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: 2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. Despite the fact that man is separated from God, the Bible says very little about it, mostly because the writers of the Bible assume it to be so since the separation of God and man at the very beginning of the Book (Genesis 3:22-24). Everyone who reads the Bible with any kind of understanding recognizes that man and God are not on the same wavelength. They are estranged from one another. Despite so little being written about the separation, a great deal is written about how the two will be reconciled. Isaiah 59:1-2 is one of the very few places that actually clearly states why the separation exists: because of man's hostility toward God. Paul states in Romans 8:7 that the carnal mind is enmity, h ...
How can one recognize a false Christ? Jesus warned that in the last days counterfeit christs would arise who would masquerade as the Messiah and claim to be the savior of the world. “Jesus answered and said to them: ‘Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, “I am the Christ,” and will deceive many’ ” (Matthew 24:4, 5, NKJV). In the New Testament, the original Greek word for Christ is Christos. The equivalent Hebrew word in the Old Testament is Mashiach, meaning “Messiah.” The literal translation of both the Greek and Hebrew words is “the anointed one.” It is the title and identity which Jesus assumed during His ministry on Earth. “The woman said to Him, ‘I know that Messiah is coming’ (who is called Christ). ‘When He comes, He will tell us all things.’ Jesus said to her, ‘I who speak to you am He’ ” (John 4:25, 26, (NKJV). Shortly before His crucifixion, Jesus preached His great prophetic discourse regarding profound events that would o ...

TEXT: PSALM.46:1"God is our refuge and strenght, a very present help in trouble" Perilous time indeed are here, no doubt about it. the prophecy of Apostle paul in 2Tim.3:1 has finally gained expression. meanwhile its not just about the prophecy. check also for the mark, signs and indicators plus the implications. thats not the real issue for today its about our refuge as a believer and our security as a body of christ , Every events that characterized this season is about the powers and the principalities trying to gain the control and whereever you find such you can expect power tuzzle and force friction which will generate pandemoium. this is to call our attention to urgently address the issue secretly He that dwelleth in the SECRET place of the most high shall abide under the shall abide under the shadow of Almighty. you as a believer must be a victim of circumstances and thats why we need to begin to see God as our refuge and the in ...
THE BLESSING OF ABRAHAM By Pastor Georgina Kennedy Welcome to 2015; the year of Resting in God’s Grace. In the Bible the number 15 represents rest, the number 1 represents God and the number 5 represents Grace. As I have been praying about this and about the direction the Holy Spirit wants to use me to take my church to the next level, the Holy Spirit spoke and said, “teach them how to Rest in God’s Grace.” I’m sure we have all heard the definition of Grace in the acrostic form of God’s Riches At Christ Expense…GRACE. In my opinion, this is a pretty good definition. In other words, Christ paid the price for us (picked up the tab) so we can live in God’s Blessings. In a couple of passages in the New Testament, the Greek word for GRACE is actually defined as Nearly Too Good to Be True News and is the same word for Gospel. In other words, the Gospel is “Nearly too good to be true news” and that Is Grace!! I want us to look at the Old Covenant (Old Testament) and the New Covenant (Ne ...
PRAYER PETITIONS I came across the following story whose author remains unknown but I could not help but pick lessons that I am only too glad to share: A voyaging ship was wrecked during a storm at sea and only two of the men on it were able to swim to a small, desert-like island. The two survivors, not knowing what else to do, agreed that they had no other recourse but to pray to God. However, to find out whose prayer was more powerful, they agreed to divide the territory between them and stay on opposite sides of the island. The first thing they prayed for was food. The next morning, the first man saw a fruit-bearing tree on his side of the land, and he was able to eat its fruit. The other man's parcel of land remained barren. After some days, the first man was lonely and he decided to pray for a wife. The next day, another ship was wrecked, and the only survivor was a woman who swam to his side of the island. On the other side of the island, the second man had nothing. Soon the first man prayed ...
The Apostle Paul a magnificent counterweight to our own decadent times
DAY 12 ~ Monday, January 26, 2015 READ: 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 God is our Comforter - Jesus called the Holy Spirit the “Comforter,” and the apostle Paul writes that the Lord is “the God of all comfort.”
DAILY REFLECTION MONDAY 26th January 2015 Theme: A LIVING HOPE Text: I Peter 1:13-22 Memory verse: I Pet 1:3-Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to His abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a living hope by the ressurection of Jesus Christ from the dead. ONE YEAR BIBLE READING Day: Act 1 Night. Job 4-5 MESSAGE Apostle Paul wrote this particular letter to encourage believers facing trials and persecution under Emperor Nero.(A.D64) Christians must be a hope of God in facing trial and persecution because the standards of many in governance are not Godly i.e one in which God can vouch for anytime,and day and at anywhere. The hope of a Christian is in Christ Jesus who had purchased us by His blood(Acts 20:28b) and perfected our salvation on the cross(Colossian 2:14). Jesus had perfected our salvation into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. He had gone ahead of all Christians to prepare a place, where He will be and all those who lived by His precept a ...
    Joe was a good and generous man. He was well thought of by his church. In fact Joe's church was rapidly expanding and in serious need of funds. So he, like many others, sold his property and gave the money to the church.          Joe was a wise man. When a young hot-headed preacher came to town, Joe took him under his wing. The young man had been giving the church a lot of trouble. Then suddenly, he bacame a Christian. Many in the church weren’t convinced this guy was on the up-and-up, but Joe brought him into fellowship with the believers.       Joe was a man full of the Holy Ghost and faith. Joe’s church had some deep seated racial prejudices.  When evangelists began preaching to those that his church had ignored, Joe who was sent to investigate. Joe was able to convince his church to cross the racial divide with the gospel.       Joe was a man who would seek out young ministers and shepherd them through the early stages of their ministry.  He was a man others would trust with ...
How i pray for such dedication to Christ The apostle Paul said one day, "Oh, God, I will follow Thee and serve Thee. Oh, Christ, I give myself to Thee. Lord, what wouldst Thou have me to do?" When Paul said that, God said, "I'm going to show you how much you have to suffer for My name." The apostle Paul, writing years later, sinimarized it in II Corinthians 11:24, Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one. Five times they had taken long leather lashes with steel pellets on the end and lashed him across the back thirty-nine times, till he was left bleeding and cut to ribbons. Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, three times I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep; in journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by my own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; in weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thi ...
Question: "What is the Christian view of suicide? What does the Bible say about suicide?" Answer: The Bible mentions six specific people who committed suicide: Abimelech ( Judges 9:54 ), Saul ( 1 Samuel 31:4 ), Saul’s armor-bearer ( 1 Samuel 31:4–6 ), Ahithophel ( 2 Samuel 17:23 ), Zimri (1 Kings 16:18 ), and Judas (Matthew 27:5 ). Five of these men were noted for their wickedness (the exception is Saul’s armor-bearer—nothing is said of his character). Some consider Samson’s death an instance of suicide, because he knew his actions would lead to his death (Judges 16:26–31 ), but Samson’s goal was to kill Philistines, not himself. The Bible views suicide as equal to murder, which is what it is— self-murder. God is the only one who is to decide when and how a person should die. We should say with the psalmist, “My times are in your hands” (Psalm 31:15 ). God is the giver of life. He gives, and He takes away (Job 1:21 ). Suicide, the taking of one’s own life, is ungodly because it rejec ...
The People of God Read Isaiah 65:1–66:24 The Lord says, “I was ready to respond, but no one asked for help. I was ready to be found, but no one was looking for me. I said, ‘Here I am, here I am!’ to a nation that did not call on my name. All day long I opened my arms to a rebellious people. But they follow their own evil paths and their own crooked schemes. All day long they insult me to my face by worshiping idols in their sacred gardens. They burn incense on pagan altars. At night they go out among the graves, worshiping the dead. They eat the flesh of pigs and make stews with other forbidden foods. Yet they say to each other, ‘Don’t come too close or you will defile me! I am holier than you!’ These people are a stench in my nostrils, an acrid smell that never goes away. “Look, my decree is written out in front of me: I will not stand silent; I will repay them in full! Yes, I will repay them—both for their own sins and for those of their ancestors,” says the Lord. “For they also bu ...
My Pastoral Tribute to my former Pastor-Charles Grisham (edited for print) To Sis Grisham, the children, grandchildren friends, and colleagues in ministry, I greet you in the name of Jesus. Today, I am extremely honored to rise and lend my voice in extending double honor and recognition of this great apostle, prophet, pastor, teacher, and of one of my fathers in the gospel. I met Pastor Grisham twenty nine years ago and my life was indelibly and forever impacted by his life and ministry. Over the years I developed so many memories of Pastor Grisham. For example; singing songs like- “down from his glory, I must be saved” and others that we sang here tonight. I have memories of a real man, yet one who cried with the tears of Jeremiah, with his passion for God and souls. I remember him as one who was not intimidated by the ministry of others, but was very comfortable in his own calling. I remember him as one with dignity and poise but who modeled passion in praise and worship. He was conservative b ...
Have you ever met someone that seems to always live in the past? You might be that person, always feeling guilty of some regret, hurt, or broken relationship? Maybe you just always feel like you let God down? Listen, the call of Christian living is not backwards, but forward! The call of Christian living is not for regrettable experiences that lie behind, but doing the will of God, which is always ahead, beckoning us to follow Him into a bright new future! The apostle Paul put it like, “But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:13-14) Let go of the past, forget about it. God has! Live everyday focused on doing His will...
Christ-Revealing Worship Conference is open to all worshipers of God who share the same life goal with the Apostle Paul, "For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified." (1 Corinthians 2:2 ESV).
What was the most important ministry you committed to publicly when you made your marriage vows? Was it parenting? Educating your children? Serving in Christ’s church, missions, Sunday school, youth work, or evangelism? All of these are important to God, but did He declare that any of them is to be your primary relationship for all of life? God’s Blueprint for Marriage After combing God’s Word for instructions about marriage, I found only one mandate repeatedly presented. Four times God stated His mandate for marriage—once in the Old Testament and three times in the New Testament (Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:5; Mark 10:7–8; Ephesians 5:31). A quick analysis of the references reveals that this mandate was laid down by the Author of marriage—once before man fell into sin, and three times afterward. This means that God’s plan applies to both perfect and sinful humans. Here is God’s simple and clear commission, His Genesis mandate, to husbands and wives: “For this cause shall a man leave [forsa ...

Good morning all!!.from my devotion.Where, O Death, Is Your Victory? January 17, 2015 “I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far… (Philippians 1:23 NIV) No matter what you believe, we’re all going to die a physical death. And throughout the history of humanity, because of conscience, terror of the unknown, and even the Old Testament law, the subject of death has been no joke. Thank God it doesn’t end there. Through Jesus’ coming into this world and living and dying for us who would believe in him, and through his resurrection as the firstborn among many brethren, he defeated the specter of death. More than that, he actually brought a sweetness to death, so that the Apostle Paul talked about not being sure which he wanted to do: depart this life and go be with Christ, or stay for the sake of the believers. Throughout the New Testament, death was actually referred to as sleep. Jesus called it sleep when he was about to raise a young girl who had died. ...
TNN ONLINE WEDNESDAY NIGHT BIBLE STUDY NOW AVAILABLE! ACTS 18:1-6 What has been commonly labeled the First Epistle of Paul to the Corinthians, is actually a second piece of correspondence written to the Corinthians (1 Corinthians 5:9), and is a letter which tends to be quite puzzling for not just Christian readers, but most especially Messianic readers. While 1 Corinthians is hardly a letter that goes unappreciated, being able to sort through the divisions, sectarianism, and inappropriate actions of the different groups among the First Century Corinthian Believers, is something that can catch many completely off guard. Not enough, in looking through 1 Corinthians, are aware that they are engaged in reading one side of a two-sided conversation, between the Apostle Paul and a group of people who widely, and in some cases desperately, needed discipline and help. Between the letters of 1 and 2 Corinthians, more was written from the Apostle Paul to the Corinthian Messiah followers, than any other group in the ...

1500 year-old Bible found in Turkey, Jesus Christ Was Not Crucified, Vatican in shock! Posted: 13 Jan 2015 10:54 PM PST Much to the dismay of the Vatican, an approx. 1500-2000 year old bible was found in Turkey, in the Ethnography Museum of Ankara. Discovered and kept secret in the year 2000, the book contains the Gospel of Barnabas – a disciple of Christ – which shows that Jesus was not crucified, nor was he the son of God, but a Prophet. The book also calls Apostle Paul “The Impostor”. The book also claims that Jesus ascended to heaven alive, and that Judas Iscariot was crucified in his place. A report by The National Turk says that the Bible was seized from a gang of smugglers in a Mediterranean-area operation. The report states the gang was charged with smuggling antiquities, illegal excavations, and the possession of explosives. The books itself is valued as high as 40 Million Turkish Liras (approx. 28 mil. Dollars). Man, where is the Thieves Guild, when you need them? Authenticity Accor ...
Pastor John explains 7 life lessons from the Apostle Paul that are suited for the new year on his blog:
Do you know why many believers today have a confused perspective of God? What would cause believers to think that God is sometimes angry with them, but at other times pleased with them? Why would some believers think that their heavenly Father would actualy punish them with sicknesses and diseases when it woud be unthinkable for them to inflict such draconian measures on their own children? What accounts for this apparent schizophrenia that exists in the body of Christ today? I submit to you that this confusion stems from what is called "Galatianism." Galatianism is essentially a mixture of covenants. It is the intermingling of teachings about God which contain a little bit of the law as well as a little bit of grace. The church in Galatia was struggling with this, and from the severity of Apostle Paul's tone to the Galatians, it is obvious that Paul regarded this issue very seriously. You will never find Paul saying to the believers in the church of Corinth, "O foolish Corinthians!" Yet, we know that the ...

Today we had blessed Church service in our Church in Nepal. We read Psalm 144 at the time of praise and worship and we praised the name of our rock. And I have preached the sermon from the Book of the Acts Chapter 24-25. Today the Lord spoke in my heart from these words of God to be continuing in God's business. It was a great privilege to King David and Apostle Paul and now by the grace of the Lord I also got this opportunity to be in the ministry of the Lord God almighty. Praise the Lord. I am waiting to preach the gospel and the words of our Lord not only in our Church but also in all over the world. I am waiting God will open the great door for me. I am praying for the nations to bless all the tribes and people of the world. Please remember me in your prayers. God bless you all.

Be an Example 1 Timothy 4:12-16 Probably most of us can identify more closely with the person and ministry of Timothy than with that of the stalwart apostle Paul. The Lord entrusted young Timothy with the responsibility of charging the churches to adhere to sound doctrine and practice. In so doing, he functioned as a Spirit-called pastor. But he still had doubts and concerns about his ability to preform this high and holy calling, as is probably true for every dedicated believer who purposes to live a life that will bring glory to God and be a blessing to others. With this in mind, Paul recognized the need to admonish the Corinthian church to accept Timothy's ministry as authoritative among then in the same manner that they accepted Paul's ministry. They were not to slight Timothy's ministry nor cause him to be afraid while in their midst (1 Cor.16:10-11). Consider how Timothy was divinely enabled to serve the Lord Jesus Christ as one of His disciples indeed (Jn.8:31). Young Timothy was to exemplify ...
QUESTION: What does Romans 11:29 mean? ANSWER: To get a proper understanding of the context of that verse, let’s read Romans 11:25-29, “For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes. For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.” Romans, chapters 9-11 deal mainly with the ‘setting aside’ of the nation of Israel as the favored people of God because of their unbelief. The Lord Jesus lamented the rejection and unbelief of Israel in Matthew 23:37 where He said, “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou ...
WHEN confronted with a problem involving the use of the reasoning faculties, individuals of strong intellect keep their poise, and seek to reach a solution by obtaining facts bearing upon the question. Those of immature mentality, on the other hand, when similarly confronted, are overwhelmed. While the former may be qualified to solve the riddle of their own destiny, the latter must be led like a flock of sheep and taught in simple language. They depend almost entirely upon the ministrations of the shepherd. The Apostle Paul said that these little ones must be fed with milk, but that meat is the food of strong men. Thoughtlessness is almost synonymous with childishness, while thoughtfulness is symbolic of maturity. There are, however, but few mature minds in the world; and thus it was that the philosophic-religious doctrines of the pagans were divided to meet the needs of these two fundamental groups of human intellect--one philosophic, the other incapable of appreciating the deeper mysteries of life. To ...
Here's an important meditation on Kwanzaa by a black Mormon, Tekulvē Vann. A Celebration of Faith and Culture: A Latter-day Saint Perspective on Kwanzaa I was relatively new to the mission field when my first Christmas box arrived. Packed among the usual missionary favorites were seven gifts that I knew were not to be opened on Christmas Day. Each of the gifts were numbered, and I was more than certain that my sister had been in charge of deciding which gift was to be opened on which day. My missionary companion was confused about the additional gifts that my mother had been sure not to wrap with traditional Christmas wrapping paper. As I explained to him that they were Kwanzaa gifts, he innocently asked about my “Black Christmas” celebration. I had never given Kwanzaa much thought growing up because it was just a part of what happened each year. The local University would host a community-wide Kwanzaa celebration, and we would make plans to attend each year. Here I was, a 19 year old charged with te ...
It’s a Brand New Year! It arrived last Thursday at mid-night, some three days ago if you’re reading this on Sunday, January 4, 2015. For many of us, it seems it took 365 days to learn to write 2014 with consistency – now we need to learn to write the correct year all over again! For most of us, there are things of 2014 we’re glad have ended and we desire to keep them in the past! Likewise, there were some very great blessings in 2014 we wish to treasure for many years to come! Still, the truth is God has given us but one day at a time: and as we count that time, we’re now four days into 2014. Thinking of NEW things might help us in how we value each day of this New Year. Within the past week or so, several “new” items found their way into our possessions. Perhaps it is the giver; perhaps it is the value of the item; perhaps it is some combination of both or more realities: yet it is something NEW and we don’t want the item damaged. We’ll do what we can to keep it safe, clean, maintained, ...
Who is Marcus Marriota? Read this below. High-charged Heisman winner Mariota powered by God Still in his junior year, the Oregon Ducks' Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota appears to be more than ready for the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day against the Florida State Seminoles – gearing up not with just a helmet and shoulder pads, but with the complete armor of God. Perhaps one of the most successful Pac-12 quarterbacks in NCAA history, and becoming the first Oregon Duck and Hawaii-born athlete to win the Heisman, the 6-foot-4, 220-pound quarterback – a staunch Christian – received an astonishing 88.4 percent of first-place votes, accumulating the second-highest percentage of possible points (90.9 percent) in the history of the highly esteemed college football trophy. Winning all but four of the 39 games he's played as a Duck, Mariota's stats continue to fill the record books, as the AP Player of the Year finished first in the NCAA this year in both passer and total quarterback rating, yards per attemp ...
Happy New Year! God is SO GOOD! Check this out. He loves you more than anybody on this earth could possibly love you, that's the truth! It doesn't matter what you have done! The Apostle Paul killed people for believing in Jesus. Look what God did with him. Moses killed someone, look what God did with Him. David killed lots of people and did a lot of other bad things too. Look what God did with him. They all repented and sought after God and He herd there cry. These are all mighty men of God! One year ago today I woke up with a massive hangover smelling like fire. Got up and my whole family was gone, the music was still on. I had ran everbody off after a night of heavy drinking. I felt like I wanted to die. I grabbed my shotgun and just layed in bed with it. Started trying to find a bullet to put in my head. Couldn't find one. I had shot the only bullet I had off the night before when I ran everybody off from the party. My phone was gone, my truck was wrecked and it was just me and my shotgun. After laying ...
Heavenward by Scotty Smith A Prayer for the New Year 01 Jan 2015 This is what the Lord says: “Don’t let the wise boast in their wisdom, or the powerful boast in their power, or the rich boast in their riches. But those who wish to boast should boast in this alone: that they truly know me and understand that I am the Lord who demonstrates unfailing love and who brings justice and righteousness to the earth, and that I delight in these things. I, the Lord, have spoken!“ Jer. 9:23-24 (NLT) Dear heavenly Father, on this New Year’s Day, thank you for the gift of a new year. But first of all, thank you for all the grace you lavished on us in the past year. You remained faithful even when we were faithless; you gave us daily mercies, and we needed your mercy on a daily basis; you delighted in us when we tried to find our delight in anything else but you. Your love is irrepressible, inexhaustible, and inexplicable, apart from hat Jesus has done for us. And now, in response to the words you spoke through J ...
"Here is a good resolution for the New Year, given by the Apostle Paul. "Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world." (Philippians 2:14-15) Rather than using FB this year to "vent" and complain thereby dimming your light for Christ, immediately go to your prayer closet and get the Holy Spirit involved so that rather than complaining to everyone you can instead be praising God for what He has brought you through!!" -- Darren McClerren
likes olives? DELICIOUS OLIVES and BIBLE FACTS: The olive tree is native to the Mediterranean Sea region where it has been cultivated since ancient times. Growing to heights ranging from 10 to 40 feet / 3 to 12 meters, the fruit was used as food and as a source of lamp oil. A dove from the ark brought an olive leaf to Noah after The Flood (Genesis 8:11). Olive oil was used to fuel the Menorah in The Tabernacle In The Wilderness (Leviticus 24:1-2), and later in the Temple (see Temples) in Jerusalem. When the Israelites entered The Promised Land upon completion of their 40-year Wilderness Journey after the Exodus, there were established olive groves awaiting them (Deuteronomy 6:11). Yeshua was arrested on The Mount Of Olives that Fateful Night, and He ascended into Heaven from there after His Resurrection from The Tomb. The apostle Paul (see On The Road To Damascus) used the pruning and grafting of olive trees as analogies for the rejection of Israelites who reject Him, and of the acceptance of Gentiles int ...
ACTIVATION If I had to pinpoint one word that I believe God is speaking over 2015 I would say ACTIVATION. It is the word that comes up in my spirit when I pray over my nation, city, home church, ministry partners, family, and my own life - ACTIVATION. Many of us have experienced transition and repositioning in these past few years. There have been new jobs, new homes, new relationships, new ministries, and new business ventures. There has also been much releasing or laying down of many of the same types of things – and for some it has been a painful transition. God has been positioning and repositioning His people into the places of maximum impact for His purposes in our lives. He did what was necessary to have us positioned where He wanted us – ready for what He had planned, ready for activation. Some of us already know the reasons and others are still seeking and asking “why”? In either case, God has been at work and if you’ve been listening and have allowed God to position you correctly, thi ...
I greatly enjoyed TO LIVE IS CHRIST, by Beth Moore. Ladies, if you want a study on the life of The Apostle Paul, either solo or group, I doubt you could do any better.
The apostle Paul wrote: When you eat or drink or do anything else, always do it to honour God. 1 Corinthians 10:31 (www.LCWords.com)
I am freshly impressed and humbled by the standard of love and care shown by the apostle Paul and his companions towards the new Christians in Thessalonica. How loving, sweet, tender, pure and self-sacrificing they were - as gentle as a nursing mother and as caring as a comforting and exhorting father. "But we were gentle among you, just as a nursing mother cherishes her own children. So, affectionately longing for you, we were well pleased to impart to you not only the gospel of God, but also our own lives, because you had become dear to us. For you remember, brethren, our labor and toil; for laboring night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you, we preached to you the gospel of God. You are witnesses, and God also, how devoutly and justly and blamelessly we behaved ourselves among you who believe; as you know how we exhorted, and comforted, and charged every one of you, as a father does his own children, that you would walk worthy of God who calls you into His own kingdom and glory." ( 1 . ...
Ray Lundy, a dear friend and high school classmate, penned this and I wanted to share: CONTENTMENT By Ray Lundy The Apostle Paul said it best: “I have learned, in whatever state I am in, therewith to be content,” Phil. 4:11. I often wonder if Paul had read the works of the Roman statesman, Lucius Annaeus Seneca, Seneca the Younger. Seneca also wrote a similar phrase: “A wise man is content with his lot, whatever it be.” Of course, Seneca had read the writings of a Greek slave named Aesop, who dispensed wisdom and truth in little stories called fables, and the little fables used animals to dispense truths. Aesop inserted his truth in this quote: “Be content with your lot; one cannot be first in everything.” Other philosophers through the centuries had said similar things, but the truth of the matter is the same: Learn to live in whatever state you are in, and be content with it. Surely, one can change his status in life with smarts and hard work, but still one must not always be striving a ...
Mid-Week Devotion Happy New Year Parish Family and Friends Okay - so last week's musing was not my last Mid-Week Devotion... this week's is :-) “It always is harder to be left behind than to be the one to go...” (Brock Thoene, Shiloh Autumn) Human life is, among many other aspects, a journey of greetings and farewells. More than 130 million babies were greeted as they began life this year; around 56 million lives were bid goodbye. Add to that new friends moving in, neighbors relocating, co-workers changing jobs... pastors moving on, and life is filled with the joy and grief of life's transitions. “I don't know how you say good-bye to whom and what you love. I don't know a painless way to do it, don't know the words to capture a heart so full and a longing so intense.” (Laura Wiess, How It Ends) Grief and joy are markers along the way that inform the sojourner that the path of Love has been traversed. Where Love is, the fragrance of joy and grief will blossom. Now, to be frank, I very much prefer j ...
"In Christ we are a new creation!" Great words from Paul the apostle as we begin a new year in Christ's hands.
New Year Resolution: May we be found faithful to the Lord Christ; fruitful in our walk & witness. My prayer is that of the Apostle Paul--"...this one thing I do, forgetting those things that are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before (ahead of us), I press toward the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus" (Phil.3:13b-14). Let's learn from the past; forgive those who've failed us & seek forgiveness from those we've failed; and let us go forward together for the glory of our Great God & the furtherance of the Kingdom. Happy & Blessed New Year, my dear friends.
The apostle Paul said it well also when he said I do the things I shouldn't do and don't do the things I should.

TWO ESSENTIAL DUTIES FOR BEARING MUCH FRUIT — Jesus once said he wanted all believers to “bear much fruit” (Jn 14:8) The “fruit” he had in mind is essentially to express attitudes and actions that accord with the Spirit who lives within every believer. Now perhaps you judge yourself pretty barren, stuck on an ever-inclining treadmill of cynicism about the Christian life. You doubt you will ever progress to the point of having “much fruit.” At the start of the new year, I wish to remind you of a key part of fruitfulness. Bearing spiritual fruit is something like farming. When a farmer sets out to raise a crop he knows certain things are beyond his power. Only God can provide sun and rain. The Lord secretly determines which seeds germinate and then causes them to blossom and ripen. On the other hand, God has empowered the farmer to use certain means. He also holds the farmer accountable to use them in faith. Harvest hinges as much on the farmer's tilling and sowing, watering and fertilizing, a ...
When the Apostle Paul got up in Peter's face and rebuked him for picking the circumcision party over the Gentiles, Peter's ego was hurt...
