"Sin Brings You Down" from 2 Chronicles 36:1-23

Image
For a drug-addict when you take in drugs, the feeling is like heaven. This is also the same in our body, when you're enjoying to do sins it will make you high but in the end sin brings you down as this is God's word said.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Jehoahaz, his name means God sustain him. In other words God is holding him. But, he did evil in the eyes of God.

Jehoiakim, his name means raised up by God. Jehoiakim was not thankful, the same thing for us, we should be thankful for if we don't, we committed sin.

Philippians 2:14 Do everything without grumbling or arguing

Nebuchadnezzar, his name means Nebu the protector against misfortune. Detestable means faithful.

Jehoiachin, his name means the one God appointed. We Christians, should always focus on God.

Jeremiah 22:24 “As surely as I live,” declares the LORD, “even if you, Jehoiachin son of Jehoiakim king of Judah, were a signet ring on my right hand, …

"By The Hands Of God" Matthew 19:13-30

Image
Our blessing comes from God.
Salvation or deliverance comes from God.

The only presence that touches our heart is God. Jesus welcome the little children and used them as an example.
Matthew 18:2-5

Luke 18:15 People were also bringing babies to Jesus for him to place his hands on them. When the disciples saw this, they rebuked them.

The Spiritual part of the children is very important. We should pray for our children.

What good thing must I do to get eternal life?

Galatians 3:5 So again I ask, does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you by the works of the law, or by your believing what you heard?

James 2:10-11 For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it. For he who said, “You shall not commit adultery,”[a] also said, “You shall not murder.”[b] If you do not commit adultery but do commit murder, you have become a lawbreaker.

Why did Jesus bring out the 10 Commandments?
Because the law is the mirror of who we are.

Jesus told the w…

"Revive Your Commitment" from 2 Chronicles 35:1-27

Image
Covenant is a bow, God use it to revive King Josiah in his reign and to revive the temple.
Passover symbolizes Jesus Christ.

John 4:20 Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.

2 Chronicles 33:3 He rebuilt the high places his father Hezekiah had demolished; he also erected altars to the Baals and made Asherah poles. He bowed down to all the starry hosts and worshiped them.

The meaning of the Temple before is an arc of covenant. But these days, our body is (we are) the temple.

1 Corinthians 6:19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own.

If you are son of God, you must not be into the world and you must also be holy. It's a really big opportunity for us Christians of what God grace has.

If I am already saved, I should not do such things anymore. It also means you NOT being selfish. The only king for us is Jesus Christ.

You shou…

"Stick To His Word" from Matthew 19:1-15

Image
This chapter teaches about marriage and divorce.

Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?
No. Because in the beginning God created one man and woman made for each other. One mind and two flesh. What God bind let no man set apart.

Divorce in King James version means to put away.

Because of divorce law many children became half orphan.

In marriage the word united means shall cleave - to glue. Just like as you glue the paper when you set it apart after gluing what will happen? The two papers will be ruin.

Jesus focuses in marriage than divorce and pointed out reasons to stay in marriage:
1. At the beginning God created one male and female
2. Man should cleave to his wife
3. No longer two but one, a husband must not divorce his wife.
4. Therefore, what God has joined together let no man shall separate.

Moses allowed divorce because the people heart were hard. But the intention of God was to make marriage permanent and to protect women.

Anyone who will divorces his wife except for fornication and m…

"Spiritual Renovation" from 2 Chronicles 34:1

Image
Be transform from renewing of your mind. Josiah means healed by Jehovah.

Matthew 6:33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

We want to be clean in the word of God. Occupy till I come means we need to be faithful until He comes and not to be busy.

If you're faithful whatever works you have, God will reward you especially in serving God. Faithful means loyal. Worship is not something like to make us ready.

Revelation 14:10-11 10 they, too, will drink the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. They will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment will rise for ever and ever. There will be no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name.”

Receptive means quick to response. God will give us heart of flesh. We are complete by God's grace. As …

"Be Kind And Forgiving" from Matthew 18:15-35

Image
Have You forgiven someone who hurt you?

If yes, is that a sincere forgiveness?

If it's you're brother or sister (in Christ) keep the matter private and approach to show him his fault. If you can't keep your mouth shut. Ask God for help. The new generation is to post thier problem in the facebook status. Does posting to social networking site will solve your problems?
Talk to her/him immediately.

Leviticus 19:17-18
“‘Do not hate a fellow Israelite in your heart. Rebuke your neighbor frankly so you will not share in their guilt. “‘Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD.

2 Corinthians 4:1 Therefore, since through God’s mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart.

Do not overcome evil with evil but overcome evil with good.

2 Thesalonians 3:15 15 Yet do not regard them as an enemy, but warn them as you would a fellow believer.


Keep the matter private.
Ask Help from other believers.
If he/she doesn'…

"Practice Godliness not wickedness" from 2 Chronicles 33:1-25

Image
You should practice Godliness in any work, it is for our faith in God. As Christian's we have to be against the world. Manasseh means he works to forget, he is one of the bad kings of Israel.

Avoid every kind of evil. Some Bible Scholars says King Manasseh made an altar image of him. Where your treasure is there your heart will be also. Sorcery means a lot of power and come from evil. Divination means predicting the signs. Witchcraft means a form of magic.

Galatians 5:19-20 19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions

Deuteronomy 18:10-11 10 Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, 11 or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead.

Leviticus 19:20 “If a man sleeps with a female slave who is promised…

"Who Is The Greatest?" from Matthew 18

Image
Psalm 27
1 The LORD is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?

2 When the wicked advance against me
to devour[a] me,
it is my enemies and my foes
who will stumble and fall.
3 Though an army besiege me,
my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
even then I will be confident.

4 One thing I ask from the LORD,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the LORD
and to seek him in his temple.
5 For in the day of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
and set me high upon a rock.

6 Then my head will be exalted
above the enemies who surround me;
at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
I will sing and make music to the LORD.

7 Hear my voice when I call, LORD;
be merciful to me and answer me…
