Lord’s Day?

Without a doubt, most professing Christians still accept Sunday as the New Testament Lord’s Day.  Some religions observe no day.

But there are those who insist the seventh-day Sabbath is still binding.

Few take the Sabbath seriously—in fact, the vast majority of Christians have never looked into this question. Most never question Sunday-observance, unwittingly following the traditions of men rather than the clear command of God!


Is it possible that many of these churches are wrong on this fundamental doctrine?  So many questions concerning this topic.  It is our personal responsibility to seek the truth in which the Holy spirit will loosen your mind to choose what pleases your relationship with God.

God knows what is expected from our heart.

May your journey be blessed and fulfilling.

God bless always,

Guilty or Not Guilty

Do we spent 75% of our daily life judging others, because we think our way is the only way to accept God and seek Salvation?

Why not spend 75% of our daily life encouraging others, building their character, being a lifeline, a compassion listener and sharing the Word with respect.

The gospels show us His immense compassion for the suffering, His attentive listening presence, and His energetic celebration of the lives around Him.

Sometime people are caught up in their own realm and competing who is more holy.  At times it seems that Christians spends an enormous time and energy within their same denomination or church in competition within themselves.

Christ love is simple for ALL his Followers and His love is the Same no more and no less.

Blessing to all who took a few minutes to read this thought of mind.

May God be your First Love.

God bless always,

Difficulties vs Victory

Don’t think that being a Christ follower exempt you and me from going through difficult times or challenges. Going through difficult times is not the problem; it’s how we come out victorious with Him that lights our path. I know there is someone that will understand this message. 

It’s His glory not OURS.

God bless as always,

Belief vs Faith

Many maybe asking what is faith? As we seek the definition of faith, we find it difficult to grasp the true meaning behind faith. In the dictionary the definition of “faith” is “believing that is not based on proof”, “confidence or trust in a person or thing”, “faith in others ability”.

I believe that there are two types of faith. The first one is the one that we are born with which evolves as “Intellectual faith”. Is the faith that grows with you since birth and everyone has this faith and it is one of the most used attribute in our day to day life activities. However, the second faith that exist is the “Spiritual Faith”. The definition of Spiritual Faith is “Our relationship with God and Lord and Savior Christ”, “Believing in God, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Now some may argue that they don’t believe in Spiritual Faith, but the truth is that each one of us have the ability to tap into the Spiritual Faith realm. Not everyone will tap into the Spiritual Faith realm. Christian faith is not purely based on evidence; but again many times we actually see the evidence through miracles, historical findings and testimonies.

I believe there is a time for everything in life; Christian or non Christian we will encounter in our life time a huge crisis which may lead us to tap into the Spiritual Faith realm and establish a one on one communication and relationship with God; in return establish a bridge which leads us to Christ as our Savior.

Let’s refer to one simple verse in the Holy Bible Hebrews 11:1 and it reads as follow “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”.

What is belief? Here are a few definitions:

  • Something believed; an opinion or conviction
  • Mental acceptance of something as true
  • The mental act, condition or habit of placing trust or confidence in another

Belief is an attribute that we are born with as well. As we grow our belief expands and builds a database in your mind archiving events, ideas and facts. Belief also allows us to apply logic, knowledge and experience to make an intellectual decision. Let’s use the example of a simple small, medium or large complex bridge. Observe the bridge closely, examine it’s design and structure. You see that the bridge is sufficiently engineered and material chosen was the best quality to withstand huge weight, weather and appealing design. Most likely you choose this bridge to go over the other side believing it will support you and others driving across the bridge. I am sure we have crossed many bridges in our lifetime…….. Now that is FAITH!

May God keep you safe always,

Gradual Transformation

Why is it that we are so intrigue with change?  Could it be that we are the main element or substance of change.  There are many definitions that describe change; for example: “to change one’s name”; “to change one’s opinion”; “to change the course of history”;  “interchange” or “to change places with someone”.  The majority of civilization  and Christian’s go through changes throughout their lives.  As we explore our inner-self, we discover that true change is transforming gradually to God’s expectations.  He offer or present us with situations or challenges in our lives offering us the freedom to decide which path to take.  As we start our spiritual walk we start to experience a gradual transformation from within.  Jesus who is Lord of Lords came to this world to change mankind thinking, living, worshiping and how we communicate with God.
The key is FAITH……as you walk this path, the higher the mountain the greater your Faith becomes.  So being patient and gradually seeking the Word, will transform you with the Holy Spirit.
May God keep you safe always,

Appreciation

When was the last time we took time to appreciate everything in our work place and in our spiritual life realm? Maybe we do sometimes, but not too often? In a Corporate America world sometimes seems to be the normal practice when it comes to appreciation. Corporate America focus 99% of their energy on ways to generate revenue and keeping cost down to produce higher profits.

Imagine reversing the scenario above instead of focusing 99% of their energy on ways to generate revenue, that the focus is appreciating everything to God first.

Taking the time to appreciate and thanking God for everything is so crucial in our walk with God.  Being grateful and doing good deeds of appreciation to others brings forth true blessings to the recipient of your deeds. While Corporate America seek ways to generate revenue and keep operation cost down, we should seek ways to generate blessings and plan of salvation to others and keep sins cost down producing higher gratification to God.

One Wednesday night driving from work eager to get home, there was going to be a special night at home. Usually our Wednesday is bible study at the church; but tonight was going to be truly special. Some church members from another county selected our home to give thanks and appreciation to God. They stated that it was placed in their hearts to visit us on this specific night and house. Well, this unexpected invitation can’t be turned down, because God works in ways that is not understood by mankind. I was very excited when my spouse informed me that they wanted to visit us. Well, they arrived a bit after 8:30 PM and we also had some friends that were invited as well so they can be part of what is to be a night of appreciation to God.

Everyone was present. we began opening up with a prayer to God in the name of our Lord and Savior. That was the beginning and the fuel that took everyone into a single thinking and praise to God giving Him the thanks and appreciation for everything including spiritual miracles and physical miracles. The leader of the church group hosted the activity and provided biblical wisdom and matched life experiences with biblical references.
,
As the night went by so rapidly like three hours into the night the Holy Spirit was truly in the house throughout this whole activity, praises, hymns and introducing prayer requests to God through our Lord and Savior Christ was no doubt in my heart was pleasing to God.

In the Holy scripture Philippians 4:6-7, states the following “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, , by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Remember to always take the time to give thanks to God for everything; place God first in our life and God will guard your heart as well. My desire is that may one day you encounter similar situation where a church group selected by God bring home the Good News and let the Holy Spirit flourish throughout the home and hearts of friends and love ones.

May God Bless you Always

A Christian Concert

Many who have never experience a Christian concert are truly missing one of the most energetic Spiritual experience that is within our reach. If you are one that never been or experienced a Christian music concert, your Spirit is waiting for you to take the next giant step and attend one. You will never come out the same as you went in. The glow in your inner and outer self will be so bright that others will notice that you have just experience a Spiritual rejuvenation.

~ۓ

There are so many different types of Christian music that you would have never imagine. The Holy scripture tells us that all music praising God is welcome and encouraged. In the Holy Bible in Colossians 3:16 says “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.” and in Ephesians 5:19 also states “addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart,” Truly investing your time and saving up to purchase a Christian concert ticket is an important element in our Spiritual walk. Seek and attend your closest Christian concert and there you will find a message that is waiting for you to receive.

May God Bless You Always,

Two Kinds of Wisdom

What is the problem with many Corporate America leaders where they claim to have wisdom? There are actually few leaders that has wisdom and it is shown through their good deeds to others. Yes, we must do our best at work and do better through our good deeds for others.

Many of today’s Corporate America leaders only think and focus on their business or work; only leaving God, family and church on a “maybe things to do list”.

In the Holy scripture in books James 3:13-18 talks about the two kinds of wisdom that man has. The scripture say “Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, nonspiritual, of the devil. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.

But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.”

How many of us are wise and understanding in our walk with God and walking the walk today in faith? The holy scriptures states that let it be shown by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.

Remember, for where we have envy and selfish ambition, there we will find disorder and every evil practice.

Let us take a few minutes to perform a self check evaluation of ourselves and take corrective actions if needed to align our deeds accordingly.

May God Bless You Always,
