"Continue to Suffer" from 1 Peter 3:13

We always have persecution in our family and friends though we don't like it and yet the Lord wants us to learn.

In 1st Peter the Christians were under the rule of Romans.

Even in the world today we are in suffering. Even though everybody are not believers, even Jesus, all of us suffer to do what is good.


Romans 8:22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.


Luke 6:22-28
22 Blessed are you when men hate you,
when they exclude you and insult you
and reject your name as evil, because of the Son of Man.

23 "Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven. For that is how their fathers treated the prophets.
24 "But woe to you who are rich,
for you have already received your comfort.
25 Woe to you who are well fed now,
for you will go hungry.
Woe to you who laugh now,
for you will mourn and weep.
26 Woe to you when all men speak well of you,
for that is how their fathers treated the false prophets.

Even if we do what is right expect to suffer, stand by the Lord.

God's knows our heart He knows who is hypocrite.
Like a tea bag if you put it on cold water the taste is flat but in very hot water it will be more delicious.
We have to continue and remember His words. You are blessed when you are suffering. The blessed word is to be envied. Blessed are you if the people insult you for we have blessing in heaven.
As Christian what is our hope? Hope in heaven.
Always be prepared to give answers to those who ask you with gentleness and respect. By faith we can go to heaven. Always be prepared.
Whenever we are asks for our faith, always answer in gentleness.
(I experience this love of Jesus Christ and I repented)
1 Peter 1:3 Praise to God for a Living Hope

3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,


Keep a clear conscience. Apart from Jesus Christ we are not good, no one is righteous no one is good apart from Jesus. People will always insult and criticize you. Even if you do what is right.

Where do you put the light? In the dark.
You are the Believers and it is just so you were put at none believers to give light to them. Even if they insult you keep a clear conscience.

"It requires more courage to suffer than to die."
Christ suffer for us to bring us to God, He did that by the power of spirit. Think about Jesus. A heart and power of the Holy Spirit.

Philippians 4:18 I have received full payment and even more; I am amply supplied, now that I have received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent. They are a fragrant offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God.


Romans 8:11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you.
Ephesians 4:10 He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe.


Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
because the LORD has anointed me
to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,


Hebrews 11:13 All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance. And they admitted that they were aliens and strangers on earth.


Matthew 27:52-53 The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. 53They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus' resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people.


Who can save you? According to our conscience and by our faith in God alone.
Unless we alow the Spirit of God to save us. Even if Jesus suffered presecution.

Evidence of Holy Spirit
Psalm 110:1 The LORD says to my Lord:
"Sit at my right hand
until I make your enemies
a footstool for your feet."


Ephesians 1:21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.


Why are we suffering? Look to Jesus even Him suffered who was the anointed one.
Remember Jesus.

Pastor's Message
Ephesians 3:7 "I become a servant of this gospel by the gift of God's grace given me through the working of His power."

We need to continue to live as servants of God by the power of his grace. For without His grace we are nothing. May all of us embrace His amazing grace as we continue to serve Him for God's glory.

"Be Honest to the Lord" from 1 Kings 9

It was 12.5 years - Solomon built the temple for the Lord.

God hears the prayers of the righteous person so be honest to the Lord
1 Corinthians 10:12 So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall!


Be careful with relationship with others specially with none believers.

Trust in the Lord...
1 Kings 8:56 "Praise be to the LORD, who has given rest to his people Israel just as he promised. Not one word has failed of all the good promises he gave through his servant Moses.


Deuteronomy 7:1-3 When the LORD your God brings you into the land you are entering to possess and drives out before you many nations—the Hittites, Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites, seven nations larger and stronger than you- and when the LORD your God has delivered them over to you and you have defeated them, then you must destroy them totally. Make no treaty with them, and show them no mercy. Do not intermarry with them. Do not give your daughters to their sons or take their daughters for your sons,

Do not be unequally yoke to unbelievers. Don't be close to them...
Romans 12:1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship.


The most important is our obedience to the Lord.

"Follow God's Order" from 1 Peter 3:1-12

"Obey before we complain, do it and follow God's order."

Before I can remember... I always complain before I obey, but as the word of God above and from the concept of 1 Peter we must obey before we complain.

For wife -must be submissive to the husband.

Ephesians 5:22-24 Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.


Being submissive = cooperate entirely and volountarily

A change life speaks loudly and clearly. Be a good sample of Christian.

The pattern of God is to change inside - out.
Proverbs 31:30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.


Genesis 2:22-23 Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.

23 The man said,
"This is now bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called 'woman'
for she was taken out of man."


And now for the husband:
Colossians 3:19 Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.


Ephesians 5:22-28 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26to make her holy, cleansing[a] her by the washing with water through the word, 27and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. 28In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.


And now for all and everybody:

Matthew 5:44 But I tell you: Love your enemies[a] and pray for those who persecute you,
a. Matthew 5:44 Some late manuscripts enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you


Romans 12:20-21 On the contrary:
"If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head." 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.


Galatians 6:10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.


oh! all of these words are so hard to do, specially when we are moved by emotional hurt.

Ephesians 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.

Pastor's Message
Galatians 6:3 If anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself.

As Believers of Christ were not to compare ourselves to other believers thinking that we are Super Christians and they are not, because in reality we are not. May you continue to depend in His Power and strength to live a victorious life day after day.

"Let God Dwell in You" from 1 Kings 6


1 Kings 6 Solomon Builds the Temple
1 In the four hundred and eightieth [a] year after the Israelites had come out of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, in the month of Ziv, the second month, he began to build the temple of the LORD.

2 The temple that King Solomon built for the LORD was sixty cubits long, twenty wide and thirty high. [b] 3 The portico at the front of the main hall of the temple extended the width of the temple, that is twenty cubits, [c] and projected ten cubits [d] from the front of the temple. 4 He made narrow clerestory windows in the temple. 5 Against the walls of the main hall and inner sanctuary he built a structure around the building, in which there were side rooms. 6 The lowest floor was five cubits [e] wide, the middle floor six cubits [f] and the third floor seven. [g] He made offset ledges around the outside of the temple so that nothing would be inserted into the temple walls.

7 In building the temple, only blocks dressed at the quarry were used, and no hammer, chisel or any other iron tool was heard at the temple site while it was being built.

8 The entrance to the lowest [h] floor was on the south side of the temple; a stairway led up to the middle level and from there to the third. 9 So he built the temple and completed it, roofing it with beams and cedar planks. 10 And he built the side rooms all along the temple. The height of each was five cubits, and they were attached to the temple by beams of cedar.

11 The word of the LORD came to Solomon: 12 "As for this temple you are building, if you follow my decrees, carry out my regulations and keep all my commands and obey them, I will fulfill through you the promise I gave to David your father. 13 And I will live among the Israelites and will not abandon my people Israel."

14 So Solomon built the temple and completed it. 15 He lined its interior walls with cedar boards, paneling them from the floor of the temple to the ceiling, and covered the floor of the temple with planks of pine. 16 He partitioned off twenty cubits [i] at the rear of the temple with cedar boards from floor to ceiling to form within the temple an inner sanctuary, the Most Holy Place. 17 The main hall in front of this room was forty cubits [j] long. 18 The inside of the temple was cedar, carved with gourds and open flowers. Everything was cedar; no stone was to be seen.

19 He prepared the inner sanctuary within the temple to set the ark of the covenant of the LORD there. 20 The inner sanctuary was twenty cubits long, twenty wide and twenty high. [k] He overlaid the inside with pure gold, and he also overlaid the altar of cedar. 21 Solomon covered the inside of the temple with pure gold, and he extended gold chains across the front of the inner sanctuary, which was overlaid with gold. 22 So he overlaid the whole interior with gold. He also overlaid with gold the altar that belonged to the inner sanctuary.

23 In the inner sanctuary he made a pair of cherubim of olive wood, each ten cubits [l] high. 24 One wing of the first cherub was five cubits long, and the other wing five cubits—ten cubits from wing tip to wing tip. 25 The second cherub also measured ten cubits, for the two cherubim were identical in size and shape. 26 The height of each cherub was ten cubits. 27 He placed the cherubim inside the innermost room of the temple, with their wings spread out. The wing of one cherub touched one wall, while the wing of the other touched the other wall, and their wings touched each other in the middle of the room. 28 He overlaid the cherubim with gold.

29 On the walls all around the temple, in both the inner and outer rooms, he carved cherubim, palm trees and open flowers. 30 He also covered the floors of both the inner and outer rooms of the temple with gold.

31 For the entrance of the inner sanctuary he made doors of olive wood with five-sided jambs. 32 And on the two olive wood doors he carved cherubim, palm trees and open flowers, and overlaid the cherubim and palm trees with beaten gold. 33 In the same way he made four-sided jambs of olive wood for the entrance to the main hall. 34 He also made two pine doors, each having two leaves that turned in sockets. 35 He carved cherubim, palm trees and open flowers on them and overlaid them with gold hammered evenly over the carvings.

36 And he built the inner courtyard of three courses of dressed stone and one course of trimmed cedar beams.

37 The foundation of the temple of the LORD was laid in the fourth year, in the month of Ziv. 38 In the eleventh year in the month of Bul, the eighth month, the temple was finished in all its details according to its specifications. He had spent seven years building it.

Solomon builds the temple for 7 years.
Other terms of temple is our body - we should not abuse it. When we want the Lord to live in ourself, leave our old life.
Temple is the house of our Lord. Take care of our body and use it as living sacrifice for the Lord.

1 Peter 2:5 NIV
you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.


1 Chronicles 17:10-11 and have done ever since the time I appointed leaders over my people Israel. I will also subdue all your enemies.
" 'I declare to you that the LORD will build a house for you: 11 When your days are over and you go to be with your fathers, I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, one of your own sons, and I will establish his kingdom.


John 14:6 Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.


Hebrews 10:19 Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus,



We can only enter the Holy Place by the blood of Jesus.
1 Kings 6:11-13 The word of the LORD came to Solomon: 12 "As for this temple you are building, if you follow my decrees, carry out my regulations and keep all my commands and obey them, I will fulfill through you the promise I gave to David your father. 13 And I will live among the Israelites and will not abandon my people Israel."

"Be Pleasing to the Lord" from 1 Peter 1:13-25

The Bible will help us to keep away from sin but sin will keep us from the Bible.

Peter was reminding the believers that Jesus is coming.
In order to please God let us please HIM with our thoughts and actions.
Be self control = sober, serious and clean minded - clear thoughts.

Please God with our mind, set your mind on things above, behave decently with good acts.
Are we ready for the coming of Jesus?

Christian life is very serious we walk against the flow of the things in this world...

Against the flow of current.

Ephesians 4:22-23 You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; 23to be made new in the attitude of your minds;


Deuteronomy 10:17 For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes.


Philippians 2:12 Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling,


Isaiah 40:8 The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever."


1 John 4:20 If anyone says, "I love God," yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen.


It takes miracle to love.

We do not study the Bible just for academic, we study the Bible to get to know God and have relationship with Him.
