"A Spirit of Infirmity" from Luke 13:10

Luke 13
1st Parable fig tree
2nd Mustard Seed talks about faith

We should know Jesus as we learn His heart.
We can see the physical problem that the people had but only Jesus can see the spiritual problem of all people.

Jesus so many times heal on sabbath that He gets reactions from spiritual leader.

Christianity is not a religion but a relationship with God. Religion is not bad as it is, we must be careful with this statement, religion is something that you do it over and over again you do it religiously.

People get used to doing things over and over again that sometimes it becomes a law. We may not notice we are doing it as we become so depended on repeatition.

Jesus does not want religion but a relationship with Him. Not to become depended on rituals but let our hearts close to His heart.

Sometimes people are so depended to religion that they forget the relationship with Jesus.

Maybe we don't have physical things that criple us but spiritualy we are crippled. We are like the woman who …

"Change Our Heart" from 2 Kings 8

Our life before was we are married in the things of this world but now as Christian we are widow of this world and be married with the Lord.

Whenever we get tired of doing the right things, the acronym for TIRED is:

Tell it to God to
Increase your faith and
Refresh and
Endure and
Do it with God

We must be constant in asking God's Holy Spirit everyday.

To have compassion for the lost.

You don't have to act like Gentiles because the Gentiles like to be in the "position and power" which are deceiving, to be a leader you must be a servant. Whatever ministry we have, we must be careful with our pride.

Zechariah 4:6 So he said to me, "This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: 'Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,' says the LORD Almighty.

To change our heart also will change our actions.

If we are controlled by emotions (as the heart is deceiving) we can't serve the Lord. We need to be controlled by His Holy Spirit. You don't have to know about bad but be…

"Walk in the Truth" from 3 John 1

Let us not love with words but with actions.

Pray for non-believers that they will walk in the truth. Pray for one another, so that God's words will touch each lives.

2 Peter 3:18 But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.

Show Hospitality with each other, the truth and personal walk with the Lord. Be faithful in doing small things, whatever ministry we have we are full time in our ministry - in serving God with all of our heart.

Walking in the Truth is following the right path when we walk God's ways - don't expect that the road will be smooth, don't expect there will be no temptations.

We need to follow directions and be reminded of God's words.

Psalm 119:11 I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.

How do we walk in the truth?
To walk in Spirit you must deny your flesh do not feed your flesh. If you feed your flesh you will be walking in flesh but if you feed yo…

"God Will Make A Way" From 2 Kings 7

Remember the movie "Facing The Giants"
From the award winning producers of FLYWHEEL, comes an action-packed drama about a Christian high school football coach who uses his undying faith to battle the giants of fear and failure. In six years of coaching, Grant Taylor has never led his Shiloh Eagles to a winning season. After learning that he and his wife Brooke face infertility, Grant discovers that a group of fathers are secretly organizing to have him dismissed as head coach. Devastated by his circumstances, he cries out to God in desperation. When Grant receives a message from an unexpected visitor, he searches for a stronger purpose for his football team. He dares to challenge his players to believe God for the impossible on and off the field. When faced with unbelievable odds, the Eagles must step up to their greatest test of strength and courage. What transpires is a dynamic story of the fight between faith and fear. Facing the Giants is a powerful experience for the who…

"Hold On To The Truth" From 2 John 1

Right is right no matter how people are against it, wrong is wrong even thou the people are for it.

Ask more and more of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is like living water

"John 7:38 NIV
Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him."

Even thou we don't deserve to be saved but because of the grace of God He saved us.

While we were sinners Christ died for us.

It's so impossible to experience peace if you don't have grace and mercy in your heart. You need to be in the truth. We should have the peace and receive the package from God.

1 Peter 1:23-25
23For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. 24For,
"All men are like grass,
and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;
the grass withers and the flowers fall,
25but the word of the Lord stands forever."[a] And this is the word that was preached to you.

All good…

"God is Concern to You" from 2 Kings 6

The background of this chapter is that people are turning away from God. But God is faithful and we will see His faithfulness in this chapter.

When you pray make sure it is in line with God's will.

The first miracle that happen to our life before we became saved is salvation.

1 Corinthians 10:11-13
11These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the fulfillment of the ages has come. 12So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall! 13No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.

Proverbs 21:30 There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan
that can succeed against the LORD.

Psalm 27:3 Though an army besiege me,
my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
even then will I be confident.

If God is with u…

"Be a Child of God" from 1 John 5:13-21

Am I really saved?

Salvation doesn't based on our feeling, as feelings come and go. Knowing it is not our feelings, it is the commitment we have for the Son of God. As long as you abide in Jesus Christ.

2 Peter 1:10-11 10Therefore, my brothers, be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure. For if you do these things, you will never fall, 11and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Jeremiah 33:3 3 'Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.'

Mark 11:24 24Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

Mark 3:28-29 28I tell you the truth, all the sins and blasphemies of men will be forgiven them. 29But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; he is guilty of an eternal sin."

The blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is continually rejecting the Holy Spirit, they don't want …

"Have a Right Heart" from 2 Kings 5

If our heart is not right before the Lord, He will not grant our petition. To have the right relationship we must have the humble heart.

Leprosy in the old days was a sign of sin in the heart. We need to continue to deal with our sin. Only God can cure sin.

1 Corinthians 1:26-27
26Brothers, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. 27But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.

We don't need to be a Pastor or worship leader to be used by God. We can be used by God whatever our work are just be faithful to Him, the important is we have the right heart before the Lord.

Sometimes we don't follow instructions, a simple statement from the Lord -because our pride role over us. Like Naaman he didn't follow right.
Elisha to wash in the River Jordan to be cleanse from his leprosy.

There is no other God…

"Believe in The Son of God" from 1 John 5:1-12

We can't compromise God and we need to believe in one and only God.

There are many chaos these days, if God see us quarreling what will He feel?
We need to show our unconditional love.

Demonstrate your love in actions for the Lord God we need to keep on doing it. Love, obedience and truth.

Love one another people will know you're my disciples if you love one another.

The commandment of God is not heavy. It's not a burden.

2 John 1:6 And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love.

The fear of the Lord is to hate evil.

Romans 8:25;37
25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

John 16:33 "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."

John 15:26 "When the Counselor comes, whom I …

Happy New Year, Welcome 2010

Love God and Others from 1 John 4:7-21

A man is like a wolf, you can't trust a man, but concerning Christians they love each other even if we don't know each other. Our love for others can be found in one source and that is God.

It is hard to love as by nature we are self-seeking, Eros - shallow love, Phileo - brotherly love, Agape - unconditional love.

Do you love all believers? The perfect example is Jesus, even thou He was on the cross He said "forgive them for they don't know what the do"
The fruit of the spirit are Love, self-control, Grace, mercy

Anybody that says He love God but hate his brother is a liar.

To forgive those people who sins against us.

Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

What makes not being fruitful in our Christian walk is not forgiving and forget. Not to talk about it anymore.

Colossians 3:13 Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one a…
