"Let's Have Unity" from 1 Kings 5

Image
Psalm 33:1 Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.

We need peace and rest with the Lord.

Jeremiah 22:29 O land, land, land, hear the word of the LORD!

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 NIV
Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their work:

10 If one falls down,
his friend can help him up.
But pity the man who falls
and has no one to help him up!

11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?

12 Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

"Remember Your Salvation" from 1 Peter 1-12

Image
The theme of Peter is suffering thus this book is about encouragement.
Matthew 4:18 As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen.

When we are discourage remember your salvation, remember the time when you are saved and it will help us endure our trials. Sometimes we are weak but remember HIS love for us.

Elohim = is plural God -The Father - The Son and - The Holy Spirit
John 15:16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.

Romans 8:29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.

Many trials may…

"Appreciate HIS Blessings" from 2 Kings 4

Image
At the mall economist research very well what will make people keep on coming back... they found out it was to tell their worker and employees to say "Thank you for coming" to their customers.

There are so many things we can thank God.

Never give up and never stop to do what is right.
Sometimes not being thankful can cause us to be tired.
Tell to God
Increase your faith
Refresh your life/soul
Endure and continue
Do it for God

Appreciate wisdom. Give thanks to God everyday.
James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.


1 Thessalonians 5:6 So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be alert and self-controlled.


1 Corinthians 1:25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than man's wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man's strength.


Ephesians 3:20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within…

"Be Devoted in Your Prayers" from James 5:13-20

Image
A child prayed and the elder heard him saying "Dear God thank you for the food. Amen" then the elders corrected him and said "when you pray you must mean it with your heart."
and so the next time the child prayed and said "Dear God thank you for the food... I mean it, I mean it with my heart thank you. Amen"
(^_^)

Devote is to hold in our mind and to be constant in prayers without ceasing. Pray for one another.
Psalm 56:3 When I am afraid I will trust in you.

Colossians 3:16 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.

Faith that works. Prayers and praising God.

Matthew 21:21-22 Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and it will be done. 22If you believe…

"Think about the Lord" from James 5:1-20

Image
How did Isaac Newton discovered gravity?
by thinking about it all the time.

To help us think about the Lord all the time is to be careful with the riches of the world.

1 Timothy 6:10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

We need to be mindful about god more than the possession.

We are not thinking about ourselves but think about the Lord, and all our possession will be none sense...

Matthew 6:19 "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.

The true rich people in this world are the content people.
2 Timothy 3:1-4 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to the…

"Be Firm" from 1 Kings 2

Image
There are many influence in our world today, like piracy of CD, as long as you don't steal the CD then its ok? No, it's wrong. The world will make wrong right and right wrong.
1 Corinthians 16:13 Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong.


To be firm we must listen to good advice. To be strong in doing the word of God and grace of God.
Encouragement cost you nothing to give, we all need it. Never depend on the law but depend on His grace.

It's not how you mark the Bible, it is how the Bible mark at you.

Psalm 132:11 The LORD swore an oath to David,
a sure oath that he will not revoke:
"One of your own descendants
I will place on your throne-

12 if your sons keep my covenant
and the statutes I teach them,
then their sons will sit
on your throne for ever and ever."

Love the Lord with all of your heart. Wisdom is not knowledge, but the application of knowledge. Follow the word of God. We should consider o…

"Humble Ourselves" from James 4:11-17

Image
There were three women:
The first woman said “when I clean my jewelry I always use expensive cleansers”
Then the second woman replied “I use fresh milk to clean my jewelry” (hmmm fresh milk?) now the third woman said “when I have dirty jewelry, I throw it away”.

Geeesh! How humble she is?

What cause fights and quarrels among you?
One of the problem is fight and disunity; comparing ourselves to one another; our pride.

We need to check our own hearts. The envy will use pride to divide the church.
Faith must have evidence.

Ephesians 4:2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love

Ephesians 4:24 And put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.




I is the center of the word => pride


Pride will kill us spiritually and physically; when you have self pity saying to yourself ____.

If you have hatred in your heart you already commit sin – covetousness – pride.

When asking, ask with right motives to God. Prayers are not getting our will…

"Let Jesus Reign in your Life" from 1 Kings 1

Image
First thing we need to do if Jesus want to reign in your life is that we have to be pure.

Respect the ladies if you look in to the woman with lust in your heart you commit adultery. What really matters is what in your heart.
If we fall into sin we need to be restored.

Adonijah = means name of Lord, or Jehovah

We must be doing what is good with the right motives, as what in the heart is important, you can't pretend but deep inside you have jealousy.
Pride is one of the tool of the enemy that causes division. If somebody has understanding do it with humility.

Proverbs 15:8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.



2 Corinthians
21 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God;
22 Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

We are fellow armies we are not fighting for flesh and blood but spiritual.

Proverbs 21:12 The righteous man wisely considereth the house of the wic…
