Faith Child – Pentecost

Learn about the history of the baptism  of the Holy Spirit in the Old (selected ones) and New  (all in the body of Christ ) Testamaents and the pentecostal/charismatic movements in present times . Dr R.C. Sproul explains here :

http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/TM13-3/undervaluing-pentecost-rc-sproul

The baptism of the Holy Spirit  was given to empower  all the believers for ministry and to fulfil the Great Commission.

Some of our readers may not be persuaded that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is  necessary for all believers – be it as unto you revealed.

Others may not have heard yet knowing there is lacking an empowerment for the ministry – as you yearn for that empowerment let  Him  reveal Himself to you.

To Love As Jesus Loved: “Charity Is Kind”

SIH TOTT ICON“And though I bestow all my goods to feed [the poor], and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

Charity suffereth long, [and] is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

Charity never faileth: but whether [there be] prophecies, they shall fail; whether [there be] tongues, they shall cease; whether [there be] knowledge, it shall vanish away…  

And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these [is] charity.

(1 Corinthians 13:3-8, 13)

 

 

As we continue looking at This will be our first of many devotionals on the events in the life of Christ that set a wonderful example for us of Scriptural love. In every example, we will be seeing Christ giving of Himself for the benefit of others…

Nuggets – Whosoever will may come

 

Whosoever Will May Come
“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.” (Joel 2:32)

“God is no respecter of persons” (Acts 10:34). Yet in the above “whosoever” passage of the Old Testament, it is clear that those who “call on the name of the LORD” were the same as “the remnant whom the LORD shall call.” Those who call on the Lord have first been called by the Lord. He accepts all those who call on Him from every nation, but no doubt their geographical location to a large extent determines whether they will even hear of Him, and “how then shall they call on him . . . of whom they have not heard?” (Romans 10:14).

Theologians of great intellect have wrestled with these questions for centuries without resolving them, at least to the satisfaction of those of different mental persuasion. On the practical level, however, the Holy Spirit led Peter to quote this passage in his great sermon on the Day of Pentecost: “And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Acts 2:21).

Peter was still speaking only to Jews, of course, but they had assembled at Jerusalem “out of every nation under heaven” (Acts 2:5). But then Paul made it forever plain that “whosoever” applied to everyone when he also quoted Joel. “For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:12-13). The Lord Jesus Christ Himself, on the very last page of Scripture, says: “Whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely” (Revelation 22:17). So, whosoever will may come! One can contemplate later, with deep thanksgiving, the mysteries of the divine call, but first he must come, and if he so wills, he may! HMM

It’s a Throne of Grace

zHis wrinkles betrayed his age but were laced with kindness and bordered eyes that reached out to love us.  I sat on the edge of my seat held captive by the words flowing from his mouth.  “Prophecy,” he said slowly walking across the podium, “is intended to comfort, edify and exhort.”  He shook his head and held up one hand.  “We will not be giving any ‘directive’ words rather our intention will be to reflect the love of God as He seeks to encourage and lift your hearts.”

HE LIFTS US UP: PORNOGRAPHY… What if it’s Your Child?

Something deep inside me…
has risen up today.
I pray that hearts will receive…

Here is a question for each…
Do you truly love your child?
Do you cherish and protect them…
keeping them away from all vile?
Do you lovingly guard them…
as a protective parent should?
Or do you let them to wander…
allowing evil if it could? Continue reading

Dim Sum – Shared experiences – Victory in Jesus ( 3 of 3 )

 Even while we were with you, we gave you this ruls:
“Whoever does not work should not eat.” 2 Thes 3:10


Paul the apostle taught, don’t work, don’t eat

So I found myself working from dawn to setting sun feats

Times of routine drudgery with account
Whilst travelling on corporate expense to far and wide.
Compliance with policies and procedures was the fount
Of controls audits feared by many
Monitoring for organizational and management change
For mergers, reorganization and integrations among many

WIN WIN audits was the Christian encouragement to attain
Not WIN LOSE audits with judgement and condemnation without feign
It was WIN for the auditees as they learned Continue reading

Please pray for 2014 cyclone Hudhud victims

Folks, here is an appeal received from People in Need Ministries, India. Please pray for the  victims and if The Lord speaks to you, give generously as you can afford.

Dear God’s children,

Greetings from India! Few days back BIG tragedies Cyclone Hudhud hit and made a great disaster in our state of Andhra Pradesh. Hundreds of people died, thousands of houses badly damaged, above 16000 water buffaloes, 14 million chickens died. 9 million people are suffering and are living in the flood water. Thousands of villages are submerged by flood water. Almost, since 9 days, people are living without electricity, living under darkness and suffering for water. This is the great damage in our country.
We are People In Need Ministries (formerly Gideon Gospel Ministries) Registered, non-governmental, non-profit, genuine and trustworthy organization, based in Machilipatnam, India. It was established in 2005. We are dedicated to serve the poor, outcast, illiterates, oppressed and downtrodden people, regardless of caste, religion, sex, or creed.

We have a social project for the women upliftment and empowerment in Vepada village, Vijayanagaram district. This is purely tribal village. Our Pastor who working in this village, called us and informed the tragedy condition in his village. His 2 churches badly broken into pieces.

Nuggets – Salvation Through the Word

Salvation Through the Word
“And it came to pass, when the king had heard the words of the book of the law, that he rent his clothes.” (2 Kings 22:11)

This experience of Judah’s good King Josiah illustrates the convicting power of the Scriptures and points up the essential importance of the revealed Word of God in the process of repentance, forgiveness, and salvation. It is the Word of God which brings conviction of one’s need of salvation, and this is the indispensable first step leading to salvation. “For by the law is the knowledge of sin” (Romans 3:20).

It is also through the Scriptures that one comes to an understanding of salvation: “The holy scriptures . . . are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus” (2 Timothy 3:15). Furthermore, it is the Word which generates saving faith: “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17).

Finally, the very miracle of regeneration, transforming a lost soul into a born-again child of God, is accomplished by the Holy Spirit on the basis of saving faith in Christ (as revealed in Scripture) through the Word. “Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth” (James 1:18). “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever” (1 Peter 1:23).

The result of King Josiah’s reading of the Word was that he “made a covenant before the LORD, to walk after the LORD, and to keep his commandments” (2 Kings 23:3).

In view of the transcendent importance of God’s Word in every phase of the process of salvation, it is no wonder that the apostle Paul’s great command, just before his martyrdom and just after his tremendous assertion of the full inspiration of Scripture and its sufficiency for every need (2 Timothy 3:15-17), was, simply, “preach the word” (2 Timothy 4:2). Not just preach, but preach the Word!
