The Lord is our Savior from 1 Kings 18

Elijah - Whose God is Jehovah

Behind the scene ministry - those who are not seen but very important. Example are Prayer warriors.

God will use you rightly.

Psalm 91:1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

It is so important for us parents to teach our children with the word of God. We need to be a good example to them in reading the Bible.

Hebrews 6:12 We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.

God is not unjust..

Matthew 10:32 "Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven.

Some people blaming God when things go bad. Jesus said "in this world we will have many troubles". But we should not be shaken. We should remember to call the name of the Lord and never doubt.

Revelation 19:20 But the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who had performed the miraculous signs on his behalf. With these s…

"Grow Up" from 2 Peter 3

When we attend the pastor and servant conference there were many strong believers that serve for more than 10 years but still they make effort and willing to learn.
The story of merciful servant who didn't anticipate for the coming of Christ. To be blameless and spotless. The first thing you need to do in order to experience peace is to receive the grace of God. Ephesians 2:8-9
We worship God for who He is and continue to receive His grace. Be strong with the grace of God. We need to be always be reminded with His grace.
Sotaira salvation patience.
Paul war apostle for the gentile. All disciples are believers but not all believers are disciples. God is not just interesting. It is not we need to worship God to be blessed, You worship God cause you are blessed.
Remember that the other purpose of this book is to warn us about false teachings.

Romans 5:20 The law was added so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more, 21so that, just as sin re…

"Be Reminded" from 2 Peter 3:1-13

As Christian Jesus told us to watch out in the day of His coming, and so, we must work out for our salvation.

As for some Christians they don't want repeated teachings. But the important thing is we are reminded. Paul remind us we need to be strong in His grace. It's not just you hear new teachings the true meaning is when you apply His words. If you know not then do not apply. For all of us no matter how you know God's words we are not here to learn - but to know how to please God. Be sincere, write and put His words in our hearts.

For example, whenever you have fight with your spouse remember your wedding day how you two have been so sweet. To recall the good times is to forget the bad times.

1 Peter 1:12 It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves but you, when they spoke of the things that have now been told you by those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Even angels long to look into these things.

The words and comm…

"Walk in His Ways" from 1 Kings 16

In this chapter 1 Kings 16, all the bad kings of Israel are mentioned.

Baasha = means bad or wicked.

For us in order to walk in His ways we must listen to His words in the Bible. There were many warnings in the Bible but we don't want to listen. And in return, we will just reap what we sow.

Elah = means strong.

You fail, I fail, we all fail, but do you still want to continue the negative things you did and continue it on to the next chapter?
This is NOT just for unbelievers but for all of us believers Christians.

For example, when the world want to escape the problems of life - people get drunk. Drunkenness has killed more man, than being killed at the war. In our life today there are many areas to check: these are our heart, jealousy, anger, covetousness and gossip...

Another thing is according to facts, over 19 million of sex magazines are being sold because many people want lust - it's the reality of the worldly things today. Pornography has the biggest catch in the businesses t…

"Walk in the Truth" from 2 Peter 2

Walk in Truth from 2 Peter 2

Today, there are so many business (that people don't know are sinful earnings) in order to earn money like piracy.
Peter told us about false teachers and teachings. As Christians we need to walk in the truth. The purpose of this book is to assure us and let us know Jesus will come back.
How to know the false teachings and are only cult?
If the preacher always talks about money and physical blessings that is one sign.

1 Timoty 6:5 and constant friction between men of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.

Don't worry stay on tract and stick with Jesus. We are not fighting against flesh and blood but spiritual war.
In today's society we welcome homosexuality and all other who follow corrupt desire and sinful nature. But God will surely rescue the righteous man, just as like Lot was rescued in Sodom and Gomorrah.
(research Jim Jones and YFZ group)
We don't serve the ministry to have m…

"Be Fully Committed" from 1 Kings 15

Be fully Committed from 1 Kings 15

Have you heard the of the humanist teachings?
They don't have any right nor wrong. As long as you don't hurt anybody that's fine. And if you steal other people goods is fine as long as you help other people.

For us Christians we follow what's right and wrong. Dedicated and loyal to God.

We should not tolerate our children to do minor sins, always correct them and be firm in discipline.
Do what is right in the eyes of the Lord and NOT in the eyes of man.

Matthew 10:25 It is enough for the student to be like his teacher, and the servant like his master. If the head of the house has been called Beelzebub, how much more the members of his household!

Love God first forget about family and friends.

Every time we commit a sin and even if we ask for forgiveness there will always be consequences in our actions. Be careful to use your living body as sacrifice not to compromise our faith.

The number 1 sin in our daily life is gossip and lie - all forms o…

"Remember" from 2 Peter 1:12-25

The purpose of this book is to be aware of false teachings.

For us, Christians we learn a lot from His words but we forget and so we need to be reminded -to remember His Love. The first thing we receive from God is our salvation. In every teachings we should learn the basic.

We use the meaning of the word but we often forgot.

Its not how much you come but how it came to you as you absorb it from the heart. Remember the basic of Love. To put it in your mind and maintain the basic, though we have advance learning never forget the basic.

We need to be refresh and stir up our memory. The word of God is like water that refreshes the soul. To be absent to the body is to be present to the Lord.

John 21:18 I tell you the truth, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go."

Every word we need to take it by heart. We need to be reminded of that…

"Be Change" from 1 Kings 14

Many books can inform us but only the Bible can transform us.

Many Christians sometimes pretend to be someone else but everything is uncovered to the eyes of God. He wants us to change from inside out.

Think about when we're eating we need to chew the food very well to absorb the vitamins and minerals in the food.

Psalm 119:9-11
9 How can a young man keep his way pure?
By living according to your word.

10 I seek you with all my heart;
do not let me stray from your commands.

11 I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.

Psalm 32:1 Blessed is he
whose transgressions are forgiven,
whose sins are covered.

If we want to be productive - we need to have the fruit of the spirit. We need to set to the goodness of God. Sometimes God remind us to the Christians songs we hear, be transform for God.

Deuteronomy 23:3 No Ammonite or Moabite or any of his descendants may enter the assembly of the LORD, even down to the tenth generation.
