Some notes from a Vigil

24 A Jew by the name of Apollos had come to Ephesus. He was from the city of Alexandria. He could talk to people about the Holy Writings very well. 25 He had been taught in the way of the Lord. And with a strong desire in his heart, he taught about Jesus. What he said was true, but he knew only about the baptism of John.

26 He began to speak without fear in the Jewish place of worship. Aquila and Priscilla heard him. They took him to their house and taught him much more about the things of God.27 Apollos wanted to cross over to Greece. The Christians wrote a letter to the followers there asking them to be good to him. When he got there, he was much help to those who had put their trust in Christ.28 In front of everyone he proved with great power that the Jews were wrong. He showed from the Holy Writings that Jesus was the Christ.

Acts 18 NLV

Some people say oh i’m with God but they fall at the first temptation.
Its crazy because I was that person.
Then God showed me resilience.
Me coming from sports and skateboarding, falling and getting back up repeatedly, needed a lesson on resilience, spiritual this time.
Even if its suffering you have to repeat i’ll go with God no matter what.
If you needa cry, cry.
It gives strength to your inner self.
You’ll suffer with that internal pain if you hold it in.
Some take forever to cry but explode when they do.
We also need to learn to forgive.
One minute the early pentecostal church didn’t know there was a holy spirit.
The next they were full blown speaking in tongues.
God reserves a place in each persons lives to change them.
We have to give ourselves to Him to let Him discover that place.

25

“At that time the holy nation of heaven will be like ten women who have never had men. They took their lamps and went out to meet the man soon to be married. Five of them were wise and five were foolish. The foolish women took their lamps but did not take oil with them. The wise women took oil in a jar with their lamps. They all went to sleep because the man to be married did not come for a long time.

“At twelve o’clock in the night there was a loud call, ‘See! The man soon to be married is coming! Go out to meet him!’ Then all the women got up and made their lamps brighter.The foolish women said to the wise women, ‘Give us some of your oil because our lamps are going out.’ But the wise women said, ‘No! There will not be enough for us and you. Go to the store and buy oil for yourselves.’ 10 While they were gone to buy oil, the man soon to be married came. Those who were ready went in with him to the marriage. The door was shut.

11 “Later the foolish women came. They said, ‘Sir, Sir, open the door for us!’ 12 But he said to them, ‘For sure, I tell you, I do not know you!’ 13 So watch! You do not know what day or what hour the Son of Man is coming.

Matthew NLV

Rapture.
This passage is a parabal to it.
In the old times they used to bible study everyday.
What happened to that?
There is the believer who lost their first love.
They don’t have interest or desire.
They don’t pray, congregate, or rea the bible.
When trumpet sounds those who are with God will go.
There will never be such a bad time as the great tribulation coming forth after the rapture.
It will be like birth pains, the bible says.
Church will go through dark, cold, and sleepy times.
But, there will be a revival in the hearts of many.
Some times we go through situations that we don’t notice are corrupting us.
If you dont notice it will keep on.
But if you do notice then you’d stop whatever it is that got you there.
People are already learning how to survive; they’ve floating manmade islands already.

Back to the bible story, five of them had oil and made it.
The other five knocked and said let us in but weren’t let in.
The ones who had said go get some.
There will be some who will take us away from God or will at least try to.
And we should say no you stay there.
Lest we be like the ones who went to get more oil.
Even to our own family.
Dress yourself first with God and truth.
If you have leftovers give them.
We won’t be saved by the force or strength of anyone else.
Not even by your mom or dad
Noone knows the date or time He will come.

These time are terrible
One spouse lives in CA and one in NY.
Oh we have kids they’re virtual.
I don’t even get it.
Peoplr are increasinly more desperate.
Amphibious and flying cars.
Times are progressing and so are people.
Demons will go flying around in the end times and will torment humans, but the humans will not die.
Let’s not be scared of what’s gonna go on cuz we ain’t gonna be here
Those in the world will suffer,
But we will stay safe.

God bless all.

Mantained

It’s interesting to think how a whole third of God’s angels fell wih satan in their big rebellion.

You have to mantain yourself reading the bible.
It goes without say that it’s God’s Holy Word.
It feeds you spiritually.

We are wonderful fragrances to God.
Let’s keep it that way by maintaining our Christian ways.

People love to leave God’s things for last.
I want people to be saved today.
I want it all to happen today.
I want to feel God’s presence today.

Now on to some social advices.

If you’re bothered by someone about something that happened in the past, seriously, let it go.
Say it; “I’m not gonna give the devil his pleasure.”

Even if youre in love with a person dont let your emotions drive you.
Stories of people who leave church because of their significant other.
Control yourself and be mature.

God bless.

Gifts and Discernment

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

The gifts God has given to the church are many.
They’re to lift up His Name.
In every form possible.
Aren’t you thankul for the gifts He’s given you?

There is an uprising of prohoets here and there and everywhere, really.
The Bible to be careful of false prophets that have gone out to confuse the church.
Many so called prophets have the mavelous, and sometimes horrendous, plans than God apparently has.
God has plans but you have to be careful out there who you listen to.
This prophet and that prophet…
I mean,
Where’s your church?
Be careful of false prophets there are many that have gotten into the world
Use discernment always.
If you don’t have it or lack a few screws in the head, just ask God.
Voice of God is the Bible.
Read it.
Love it.
Hear it.

Don’t waste your time being bothered

Used to love westerners.
You know, those old guys on horses screaming yeehaw!?
No seriously they were my thing.
Stopped watching them though because they’d kill and murder lefta and right.
I mean if you go looking for the bad guy i get it.
Coming from a gun lover too.
But these shows were just trigger happy people playing around wih bullets in each other’s chests.
I mean in the ten commandments…
Bible says not to kill.
Lol, seriously.
There are some people who are hooked way more than I was on different kids of shows.
These soap operas and Novellas people watch are seriously baity.
These people watch and watch and know every character and event it’s crazy.
It’s not only women and girls either; some guys are too!
I didn’t say men, cause, you know, I just don’t think that’s the kind of show a MAN would watch.
But some guys are baited too.
I honestly don’t recommend wasting your time on this.
When it comes on pray and talk to God for a bit.
That show duration would b better spent hearing God talk about your drama.
No reason to fall in love with drama; it changes your personality.
Jesus is coming soon.
He is literally right at the door.
We can’t be wasting time every day.
I love wasting time which explains my love for Colt Ford’s hit “Waste Some Time.”
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AtYqvSoUOTc
And you should too, but don’t let it go too loose.
Remember the story from Bible of the Ten Virgins?
Five stayed waiting for their respective bridegrooms and five went to refill their oillamps and ended husbandless.
Don’t be like that.

Resentment.
It’s a strong word isn’t it?
People have a problem.
I was like that.
I would hate you for all eternity if you did something bad to me.
But I believe God wants you, if ever so wronged, look at that person in a different way, treat him how he deserves to be treated, but forgive and forget about the hate and resentment.
It’s not worth holding on to and actively hating someone.
Forget and forgive.
pray and keep on.
For some people everything’s bad, though.
There is literally ALWAYS somthing wrong about everything.
They live in this world of scrutiny.
Don’t be like that either.
They’re always bothered they never wanna talk.
A smile could change anyone’s day.
From a simple smile to a simple hug.
It changed mine.
The pastor’s wife noticed I was oddly serious one Bible study.
I felt bothered and reserved.
At the end she asked if I needed one and what happened.
When I didn’t answer and merely looked at her, she approached me and hugged me with a strong, long abrace.
One to remember.
Noone likes to suffer.
That’s why you pray for someone till they’re good.
God bless.
God will let the devil scare you

A Message Of Sowing Hope

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

God says I am with you.
God says it even when you’re suffering.
He says “I am with you and have plans for you that you’d never know.”
But it all depends on you, because you reap what you sow.
There was an ugly kid once. I told “wow you’re the ugliest kid born” that kid told me “whats ugly is what’s coming for you.”
What are you sowing?
Jesus is sowing good for all those who are faithful to Him. Like a verse says, all things work good for those who love God.
Even if you pass through bad, you will not ever get burnt. Let all hell break loose. Let it all come. God will protect you through it all.
Now let’s return this faithfulness to God.
Even if I’m dying I will keep on saying Glory be to God.
Stay strong. Always.
Don’t listen to your enemies.
Demons will die lying.
They will say things like:
“You won’t go to heaven.”
“You’re too evil.”
Nevertheless,
Every one in God’s plan has two spiritual wings set for them, literal at His coming
Despite what’s going on, never take yo ur eyes off of Him, and never off of your confidence or faith on God.

Your verse for tonight
20 See! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and we will eat together.

Your Youth

Hello guys,  and God bless.

I was chosen to read 1 Timothy 4:12-16. I included it below, but as I read it I elaborated on it. With verse 12 I told everybody that as we are the example,  we follow Jesus. They follow us as we follow Him. Then for the rest of the 5 minute introductory Bible reading, I focused on the youth and the little ones and finished saying to show all your frends, family, everyone around you especially in school that you walk about in faith, love, and holy living, as the scripture states. I realize it’s especially hard in today’s society to represent God in school but any minute try we do I believe God sees and the mustard seed us planted. Crazy how it takes so much effort, hammer to head knocking & drilling, and premeditation to just blurt out a simple witness in such an environment but it does go a long way. After urging them that I received a round of applause and hastily preceded on. After verses 13-16 I quickly mentioned how they don’t sit in the pues in vain, that they need to retain every word their Spirit recieves. I guess it did hit them because today I heard a family member who attended the service talk on the phone about how some people sit in vain. At least these seat fillers are going to church in he first place. I finished off 16 and concluded all this by tying in what I said at first: pose a good example so others can follow you as you follow Jesus.

The Bible Passage:

12 Let no one show little respect for you because you are young. Show other Christians how to live by your life. They should be able to follow you in the way you talk and in what you do. Show them how to live in faith and in love and in holy living. 13 Until I come, read and preach and teach the Word of God to the church. 14 Be sure to use the gift God gave you. The leaders saw this in you when they laid their hands on you and said what you should do. 15 Think about all this. Work at it so everyone may see you are growing as a Christian. 16 Watch yourself how you act and what you teach. Stay true to what is right. If you do, you and those who hear you will be saved from the punishment of sin.

– 1 Timothy 4:12-16 NLV

God Bless All.
