Nuggets – The Heart Is Deceitful

The Heart Is Deceitful
“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9)

Just as in modern languages, ancient Hebrew used the term “heart” to mean the inward motivations which control a person’s words and deeds. According to the prophet Jeremiah, the spiritual heart is so innately wicked and deceptive that one cannot even understand his own heart—but God does!

One urgently needs a new heart, and God promises just that. “A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh” (Ezekiel 36:26). “This is the covenant that I will make with them . . . saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts” (Hebrews 10:16).

HE LIFTS US UP: “Becoming Whole”

As I prayed one morning, I felt led to share this with you. I feel that many who are alone or have been broken need to hear this. You see, God is working on someone for you. He knows everyone’s heart. He never wants us to be abused, so we have to be patient and wait on Him. Continue reading

HE LIFTS US UP: Wearing Your Heart on Your Sleeve

I have cried a million tears
and many lies I did believe…
Then in my brokenness I’ve been told:
“You wear your heart on your sleeve.”

So what does this mean?
Does it mean you are an easy prey?
Well, these words have been on my heart…
and this is what it means to me today. Continue reading

Child of the world – Battle with the devil

Child of the world, how do you live sanctified, pleasing to God?

Listen to this message by Dr R.C. Sproul on the Battle with the devil

who is a person.

Luther was acutely aware of the devil and spoke of the presence of the devil, and even threw  a bottle of ink against the wall  where the devil was.

Times have changed – not many believe in a personal devil.

He is subtle, greatest hypocrite in the world, anti-Christ (imitation of Christ) to deceive the very elect, the angel of light, a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.

He is formidable opposition. Peter said he would not deny Christ three times but he did. Do not under-estimate the power of the devil.

Put on the whole armour of God – we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against supernatural enemies – it is a battle against powers, principalities, cosmic evil.

There is reality not visible to naked eye with profound impact on Christian.

Do not over-estimate the power of the devil.

An Appointed Time to Die – An Appointed Time to Live – Inspirational Bible Verses

An Appointed Time to Die – An Appointed Time to Live – Inspirational  Bible Verses

by Darrell Creswell

http://darrellcreswell.wordpress.com/2014/09/21/an-appointed-time-to-die-an-appointed-time-to-live-inspirational-bible-verses/

2-samuel-1414-appointed-die-life-grace

The Bible tells us that there is an appointed time for us to die. That being said, it only stands to reason that there is also an appointed time for us to live.

Hebrews 9:27 And just as it is appointed for people to die once . . .

It is in how we live where we find the definition for our lives. It is the choices that we make that will test our character, further defining who we are. We are tested daily to define that standard by which we will live our lives by. It is the things that we fill our minds with that will show the kind of person that we really are.

Nuggets – Philosophy and Vain Deceit

Philosophy and Vain Deceit
“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” (Colossians 2:8)

It is bound to be significant that, in the only place where the Scriptures even mention philosophy, we are warned to beware of it! Likewise, the only philosophers mentioned were evolutionary humanists who called the apostle Paul a “babbler . . . because he preached unto them Jesus, and the resurrection” (Acts 17:18).

The word “philosophy” literally means “love of wisdom,” and every philosophy—ancient or modern—is essentially a humanistic devotion to man’s wisdom for its own sake.

But such wisdom is false wisdom. It derives in type from “the tree of knowledge,” through the “vain deceit” of Satan, who tries to persuade us that partaking of it would “make one wise” and that “your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods” (Genesis 2:17; 3:5-6). It has “indeed a shew of wisdom” (Colossians 2:23), but “the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God” (1 Corinthians 3:19), and eventually all “the wisdom of this world, . . . [and] of the princes of this world, . . . [will] come to nought” (1 Corinthians 2:6).

Genuine wisdom, on the other hand, is as our text reminds us, “after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power” (Colossians 2:8-10). For in Him “are hid [literally ‘stored up’] all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Colossians 2:3).

The Lord Jesus Christ is “the truth” (John 14:6), and is both “the power of God, and the wisdom of God” (1 Corinthians 1:24). This true wisdom is freely available to all who desire it. “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God . . . and it shall be given him” (James 1:5). Therefore, we need never waste our God-given time on human philosophy. HMM

Teens Blog- SF11- Hope in the Midst of a Tornado

TornadoiStock_000030593754Small

If you are familiar with twisters and tornadoes, you know that they come alive very quickly and unexpectedly. Right before they hit, it becomes very dark and thick, with violently strong winds impacting at high speed and little time to react.

That is often how we relate when bad things happen. We don’t always expect it and when it hits us, it is overwhelming, scary, and leaves you wondering, “Where is God in all of my turmoil?” Continue reading

Do all your work in love

Let us keep the ball rolling for our love talk series (previous posts: Revisiting the Two Greatest Commandments | Who is my neighbor | How then should you love your neighbor?).  But before anything else, let me thank you first for offering prayers for the Philippines as I brought up last week some of the current trials we are facing (Request for Prayers for the Philippines).  God is sovereign.

Today, let us take a look at how apostle Paul sees this four-letter word, and flesh out from it the practical side of sharing love.

If you have watched A Walk to Remember, I am sure you are quite familiar with the most commonly quoted love passage: 1 Corinthians 13:4-7.  But now, I encourage you to step a lil backward and listen to what Paul says in the first 3 verses:

Love

13 I may be able to speak the languages of human beings and even of angels, but if I have no love, my speech is no more than a noisy gong or a clanging bell. I may have the gift of inspired preaching; I may have all knowledge and understand all secrets; I may have all the faith needed to move mountains—but if I have no love, I am nothing. I may give away everything I have, and even give up my body to be burned —but if I have no love, this does me no good. ~ 1 Corinthians 13:1-3

Walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit.

Oh dear God, welcome the children home and comfort the parents

Christian children are being beheaded and martyred and our God knows each one by name, wherever they are. Nothing can hurt them anymore.  We pray “Ö God, welcome each one home to live forever in your blessed Presence. Thank You Lord.”

“Christian children are in grave danger Lord,  please cover them with Your Precious Blood we pray. Holy Spirit we pray for You to raise Your standard against the enemy. Blind them and cause them  to be in conflict with one another and in confusion that they will  kill each other in their wickedness  instead of the children. Lord You have done it for the Israelites in 1 Samuel 14:20 and Joshua 10:10 in  times past and You can deliver Your people in ways no human mind can think of.”

“For each grieving parent, Holy Spirit be their Comforter, for You know what it is to  lose a son. Make each a testimony of Your grace, faith, strength and love. Lord, if ever they need You, they need You now. Be their Refuge and Strength and Strong Tower O Lord. Please meet them at their points of need and heal them Lord for as You have given and taken away their children, let their hearts once more be filled with joy that passes all understanding.”

“We remember those who are Your missionaries and those who will not withdraw nor flinch in battle, Lord may they like You , set their face like flint  towards heaven and yield only to Your calling  If they should die, bring them safely home and let their blood cry out for justice until they be avenged.” Amen.
