"Fully Rely On God" from 2 Chronicles 16

L.T. Frog: Learning to Fully Rely on GodBe the FROG - fully rely on God.

Southern and Eastern part of Israel at this point are on war. Asa is on the Southern part.

Asa at this point don't rely on God for his sickness. He seek the help of the physicians rather than God. Trusting in the arm of the flesh than on the Lord.

For instance, we trust more in our money and food rather than to God.

Be consistent in our dependency on God.


Charisma - God's grace working on us.
Charismania - man's effort imitating God's grace.

Asa also made a mistake in asking help in non believers. He suffered from a serious foot disease but he never ask the help of God. The Bible criticizes his consultations with physicians because in those days "physicians" were pagans healers who used rituals that conflicted with God's law.

God will strengthen us if we fully rely on the Lord. Don't worry about tomorrow.

Psalm 37:40 The LORD helps them and delivers them;
he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
because they take refuge in him.

James 1:19-20
19 My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20 because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.

Remember as you look at the FROG - be the FROG kind of person.

"He Is Risen from The Dead" from Matthew 28

He is Risen DVDWe need to know the importance and highlight of the Easter Sunday. Is it Christ or the egg?
Be reminded that Jesus told His disciples to Stop doubting.

Christ Resurrection is not man's effort but God's.

God will use the foolishness of this world to shame the wise.

Matthew 16:21 From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life.

John 2:19 Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days."

It is a sin of omission if we forget the message of God.

1 Corinthians 15:4-6
that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas,[a] and then to the Twelve. After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep.

People can sometimes be so literal and they are more excited in egg hunting than the fact that Christ has risen from the dead.

Now Why did Jesus meet His disciples in Galilee?

It is the place where Jesus was called Nazarene. And Christ was rejected on this place and so this is to let the people know that Jesus was telling the truth.

Matthew wrote these things to prove Jesus is the Messiah.

The definition of easter - is to our faith. . .It is the first and final word of Jesus Christ.

The enemy will try to put lies in the mind of the people to let the message of resurrection be useless. They will believe more in the chickens and eggs rather than believing in Christ.

For the love of money is the root of every kind of evil. Most people would prioritize worldly things than eternal things like Spiritual growth. Encourage one another and prioritize of fellowship with Christ.

God gave us 6-days to work and Sunday is our time to worship. Set your mind on things above not on worldly things.

If we are not in fellowship with Christ we will little by little forget God's word.

Blessed are those who believe yet have not seen.

Pastor's Message
Luke 24:34 It is true! The Lord has risen. . .
Is it really true that Christ has risen from the dead? I will not blame and accuse why people doubted or even refuse to believe in Christ's resurrection. Because before, even the disciples they doubted, they forgot the words of Jesus that He will rise from the dead. And they have slow of heart to believe His resurrection (they think He was a ghost). But one thing I would say to you, I am convinced that Christ indeed HAS RISEN FROM THE DEAD. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.

"Be Sensitive to The Leading of The Holy Spirit" from 2 Chronicles 15

The Holy Spirit: Activating God's Power in Your LifeThe meaning of Azariah - Whom Jehovah helps

Seek God's kingdom and righteousness then everything will follow.

In the book Colossians - teaches that whatever we keep on thinking - that is what you ?idolize?

From first thing in the morning to evening what are our thoughts? Is it the cell phone? The person you're in love with? Or the Bible?

The emphasis of the Bible is to keep you from sin but be aware that sin will also keep you from the Bible.

Little by little, before we knew it because of the increase of the wickedness we become lukewarm.
If we don't go back to the basic it can happen to all of us.
It's so important to bring our own Bible.

Learn to study on our own in our devotion. Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit.

Do not give up and be strong. Be strong in the Lord and His mighty power don't depend on your own.
(Don't let your hands be weak, don't throw the towel.)

Galatians 6:9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

Our labor in the Lord is not in vain.
Don't expect too much that everything will be rewarded right away, it will happen at the right time.

Are we sensitive to God's word?
If you're not then it's a red flag and time to go back to the basic. We need to allow His word to encourage us.

If we are doing something without thinking - it's a "Habit" (going to The Bible study without your brain functioning) is not good because it comes out without a meaning.

To check the person if he is sick the doctor will always check the patients' appetite. Do we still have the appetite in God's word?
Search me oh God and know my heart.
If your basing your feelings in serving God. That is not good.

Stay on track and seek the Lord with all your heart.
No matter who you are if you don't have a real relationship with the Lord, you will be put into hell. Anyone who refuse to seek the Lord will be put to hell.

Remember that Asa was not a man pleaser, he pleases God more than man. Asa did right in the eyes of God.
Moral lesson here is that we need to please God more than man. Stand for what is right. Follow what the Bible teaches.

Be lead by the Holy Spirit and set our heart in things above, occupy until He comes.

"God of The Needy" from Matthew 9:27-38

The purpose of this book is to let us know that Jesus is the Messiah and Son of God.

Part of God's nature of God is omnipotent and also the God of the needy all we have to do is cry out to Him.
The word believe it to have faith and to put in trust with all of your heart and mind.

Ephesians 2:8-9 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.

Another supporting for Ephesians 2:8-9 read this post God is more Real than Hell

Sometimes we don't know how to pray and what to pray. But God understand even in th sight.
Jeremiah 32:20 You performed signs and wonders in Egypt and have continued them to this day, in Israel and among all mankind, and have gained the renown that is still yours.

Don't be HiTaChi
Himantayon
Tabian
Chismosa


Notice on this chapter, Jesus order of ministry: Teaching in synogue; meeting and place, teaching about beautitude
Preaching the gospel mainly focus to unbelievers.
And Healing.

The purpose of the church is to ground the people in the word of God and have mature relationship with God.

Hebrews 4:15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin.

Hebrews 5:2 He is able to deal gently with those who are ignorant and are going astray, since he himself is subject to weakness.

Lamb without a shepherd is dangerous. Jesus is our shepherd who will guide and protect us.

Pastor's Message
Psalm 136:23 To the one who remembered up in our low estate. His love endures forever.
Did you ever felt that you are alone? That God seems like He is not concern and wasn't thinking about you? This verse really comforted and reassured me. I'm encourage and blessed when I read it.
I hope and pray that as you read the verse even without my comments you are also comforted and be blessed. God is thinking about you because He loves you unconditionally.

"He Came For The Hopeless" from Matthew 9:1-13

Revelation 22:11 "Let the one who does wrong continue to do wrong; let the vile person continue to be vile; let the one who does right continue to do right; and let the holy person continue to be holy."

Luke 5:20 When Jesus saw their faith, he said, "Friend, your sins are forgiven."
Our sins are forgiven

Colossians 1:12-14
12 and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. 13 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

Christ has the authority to forgive our sins as He came for the helpless to forgive our sins.

The Lord knows the heart.
Hebrews 4:13 Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

Don't pretend that you don't need His forgiveness. We are all helpless.
The purpose of this letter is to prove that Jesus is the Messiah.

Matthew 9:6 But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins." So he said to the paralyzed man, "Get up, take your mat and go home."

So they may know that the son of man has the authority to forgive sins.
Why did Jesus called Himself the Son of God/Man because He was the mediator. Half God and Half human.
The only one who knows the needs of the people and also God at the same time.

You can receive healing and forgiveness.

Jesus came for the helpless, Matthew was helpless and Christ called him. Matthew got up right away and follow Jesus.
No matter what is your background and past life you still have room for Jesus.
Don't think that Christ will not forgive you. If you are willing to ask for forgiveness and repent, God will give you a new heart. It is the power of the Holy Spirit.

Luke 5:27-28
27 After this, Jesus went out and saw a tax collector by the name of Levi sitting at his tax booth. "Follow me," Jesus said to him, 28 and Levi got up, left everything and followed him.

Luke 9:23
Then he said to them all: "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.

Consider and Let Jesus control and reign in our home and in all of the areas in our life.
Matthew invited Jesus in His house and also his friends to meet Jesus.

Let's have time to unbelievers and to lead them to Christ. To be the light of the unbelievers and to remind us we are like that before so reach them out.

Healthy people don't need doctors but the sick.

We have all fall short in the Glory of God. Jesus was sent by God to saved the sinners. So if you consider yourself righteous then you have no room in heaven but if you humble yourself and admit your sins then you're saved.
