"God Saving Grace" from Acts 10:9-48

Pastor's Message
Exodus 33:7 Now Moses used to take a tent and pitch it outside the camp some distance away, calling it the "tent of meeting." Anyone inquiring of the Lord would go to the tent of meeting outside the camp.

The word tent ('ohel) denotes simply a tent, for the tabernacle was not built at this time.
In the Old Testament, anyone or anybody would inquire the Lord before would go to the "tent of meeting". They have some set of guidelines to be able to inquire or ask the Lord. But isn't that a privilege for us mmy as believers to approach the "Throne of Grace" anytime and anywhere. And, let us take that chance every moment to pray and seek Jesus.

Happy Birthday

We are one in Christ. As when God saves it doesn't mean you are a Jew, Pastor or someone perfect. God Reach us at Christ extent.

The outcome of our commitment to God is through our prayers.

"God is our hope" from Job 17:1-16

Image
In the previous chapter 16, Job is so down in his self about what happened to them. You can see the pride in this book of Job.

Romans 8:7 The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so.
Hostility means Job's enemy.

1 Corinthians 11:8 For man did not come from woman, but woman from man;
Job's points good and bad. We can also see the humility of Job and the most humiliate person is Jesus Christ.

We can see that Job is hopeless of the circumstances he had, but be reminded that God is our only hope. Also Job wants to die but he still have little faith remains.

Jesus alone brought life in us.

"He knows" from Job 16:1-22

Image
God knows what time you will wake up, God knows what you're going to say, in short God knows everything in you. But here the friends of Job acting and saying like they know all about Job.

Here Job replied to Eliphaz, a non-stop conversation of Job's friend to him. Miserable means painful advice. As Christian's, we have to listen to Godly advice and not into the worldly thing.

Job said, if you were in my place, I will encourage you. After fellowship you feel relieve. Gauntness narrowness.
Assails means to attack figuratively.
Jeer means to mock or boo.

The experience of Jesus Christ - was mocked.

Isaiah 50:6 I offered my back to those who beat me,
my cheeks to those who pulled out my beard;
I did not hide my face
from mocking and spitting.
Sack clothe picture of mourning. Life on earth is very short. You can find encouragement in the Lord, that's why you need to read God's word. And the Lord knows all your needs.

"Transformed to Serve" from Acts 9

Image
Transforming is going forward not backwards.

To offer our body as living sacrifice to God. To renew our mind to be able to test and approve in God.

Encouragement from God is eternal peace. So if you want encouragement learn God's word.
Live to worship and live to love the Lord. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.
