Sharing nugget experiences 2017-18 – Therapist

Hi everyone,
As we look forward to celebrating The resurrection of Christ, let us remember those who do not know the significance of the resurrection of Christ or have been put off believing in the resurrection .

After my therapy session on Maundy Thursday I wished my Filipino occupational therapist a blessed good Friday and asked him if he was going to church. He said “no, I shall be resting at home. ”

Today Saturday after Good Friday, he was preparing me for my therapist session. As is the custom I would be ready when he came to collect us from our ward to the therapy room.
Unfortunately while my session is normally at 10 am he came to collect us at 9am it being Saturday and a half working day.

When we are ready we have our shoes on and are then seated in our wheelchairs. This morning I needed assistance to get my shoes on as it was early yet when he came.

He bent down to retrieve my shoes under my bed, and knelt in front of me to put my shoes on. I said ” you are so humble and remind me of Jesus. He washed his disciples’ feet and you are helping me put on my shoes. ”
My occupational therapist was so visibly moved but said nothing. I knew there must be a story behind the fact that Filipinos would go to church at Good Friday n Easter but he is not – pray that somehow the Lord will reveal Himself to my therapist today or during this blessed season.

Perhaps there is someone you should pray for while you celebrate our Risen Lord.

We serve a risen Savior and He is in the world today.

The Gifts of the Spirit– Wisdom Is First, Then the Healings

Immortality Road

The gifts of the Spirit are the things that the Spirit gives, not to us, but through us to others. For example, a member of the body of Christ performs a miracle. The miracle is done for the recipient, not the worker.  Of course, it is the Spirit inside the member of Christ’s body that is the miracle Worker.

The gifts that the Spirit channels through us are called “the manifestation of the Spirit.”  A “manifestation” is the unveiling of something previous hidden. God is unveiled each time He flows through us to others. God becomes better known to all those around each time one of His gifts is bestowed. We become His witnesses that He is God whenever He passes along through us a spiritual gift.

List of Gifts

The gifts of the Spirit are listed in I Corinthians 12: 7-11. All of us have read them. You hear…

Nuggets – One Another

One Another
“But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.” (1 Thessalonians 4:9)

The Christian life involves both individual accountability and interpersonal involvement. Each of us is individually responsible for maintaining the right sort of relationship to others, especially others in our Christian fellowship.

A beautiful Greek word is allelon, often translated “one another.” For example, we are commanded: “Be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you” (Ephesians 4:32). Furthermore, we are to “be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility” (1 Peter 5:5), “in honour preferring one another” (Romans 12:10).

There are many other such admonitions, all built around the beautiful phrase “one another.” Although we have indeed “been called unto liberty,” we are nevertheless to “serve one another” (Galatians 5:13). We are also to “exhort one another daily” (Hebrews 3:13) and to “consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works” (Hebrews 10:24). “Use hospitality one to another without grudging” (1 Peter 4:9). We are told: “Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2).

In times of sorrow, Christians are admonished to “comfort one another” (1 Thessalonians 4:18). “Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another” (1 Thessalonians 5:11) and “pray one for another” (James 5:16).

But by far the most frequently repeated admonition is that in our text: “Love one another!” There are no less than 15 times where this command is given in the New Testament. Most significantly of all, it is Christ’s own “new commandment. . . . By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another” (John 13:34-35). HMM

Sharing nugget experience -2017-18 – Thy will

When we have no energy/ choice left and like Jesus have to say ” Father not my will but thine be done. ”
We have to submit to the Lord and to His time and plans as we come to the end of ourselves.

I felt somewhat like that when I was on the floor laid on my back after my accidental fall from missing a step at home, and when I came crashing down three more steps, with the cracking sound of my breaking femur bone on March 30 2017.

Thank God I was not knocked out unconscious.

I felt hopelessly inadequate, in doing anything except call on the Lord.

That was also when I texted Bedok Efg members for immediate prayer for help from the Lord.

Praise the Father in heaven who heard our call in Jesus’ name and will accomplish that which He purposes in my life.

“Thy will be done” has achieved new meaning and purpose in my life and given me serenity to ” accept the things I cannot change, change the things I can and wisdom to know the difference”, praise God.

I pray that every reader here will submit to the will of God and not wait to face an ultimatum with dire consequences for the Lord to catch our attention. The Lord help each of us to remain in the centre of His will out of love rather than fear.

Nuggets – He Doth Devise Means

He Doth Devise Means
“For we must needs die, and are as water spilt on the ground, which cannot be gathered up again; neither doth God respect any person: yet doth he devise means, that his banished be not expelled from him.” (2 Samuel 14:14)

These words of the “wise woman of Tekoah,” spoken to King David concerning Absalom, his son, were wiser than she knew, for they reflect a principle of human experience that affects us all. Human life must eventually deteriorate and die; this declension cannot be reversed any more than water poured down on the ground can be “un-poured” up into the cup again.

This principle is the famous law of entropy (“in-turning”). Physical systems wear out; biological organisms get old and die; societies and empires fall and vanish. All these phenomena are local expressions of God’s universal curse on man and all his dominion (Genesis 3:14-19). It applies to everything, without exception.

However, the very existence of the law of entropy points to a Creator because systems that are wearing out must first have been made new, and beings that die must first have been given life. The very idea of a universal naturalistic evolution of all things into more complex systems is contrary to all real scientific data and is contradicted by all human experience.

Nevertheless, the God who created all things can surely “devise means” by which the law of decay can be set aside. Solar energy and the hydrologic cycle can raise the spilled water; the sinful life can be purified by God’s grace and the blood of Christ; and the dead can be revived by the resurrection life of Christ. Someday the Curse itself will be removed when God creates new heavens and a new earth, and the whole creation “shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God” (Romans 8:21).

Sharing nugget experiences – 2017-18 – Medicines

Tramadol Painkillers, Panadol, antibiotics, iron, calcium, anti acid , blood pressure pills, counter nausea, steroids pills – some bitter, some sweet, some more difficult to swallow than others , but all I need today.

How many pills do I need from the Word of God today? Do I not care until I am doggone low in spirit and faith? Or do I daily fortify myself with the preventive vitamins in God’s word?
Don’t wait, because daily we need His Word as the Lamp unto our feet and the Light unto our path.

Praise God He never leaves us alone!

Nuggets – Fruitless Trees

Fruitless Trees
“Woe unto them! . . . trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots.” (Jude 1:11-12)

Many illustrations in Scripture compare the responsibility of trees to bear fruit and the responsibility of Christians to produce righteousness. The reason for the frequent comparisons is that “a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit” (Luke 6:43). It is easy to tell what kind a tree is because “every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes” (Luke 6:44).

Jude is making the point, however, that there are “trees” planted amidst the orchard of God’s Kingdom churches that have withering “fruit” or have already been rooted up as worthless, fruitless, and twice-dead. These trees have absolutely no place among the healthy trees. At best they scar and mar the beauty of the orchard, and at worst they spread their decay and rot throughout it.

Another very important point is that trees that have withered or cannot produce good fruit are not salvageable. All of nature demonstrates and reinforces the eternal principle that “every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit” (Matthew 7:17). Such dead, fruitless trees are to be “hewn down, and cast into the fire” (Matthew 3:10).

The common thread in all of these several pictures by Jude is the damage that can be done by ungodly “tares” among the wheat (Matthew 13:24-30), fig trees that should be providing nourishment but do not (Luke 13:6-9), and plants that are choked by “cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches” (Mark 4:19). All of these can spread the “leaven” through the whole “lump” and undermine the work of God (Galatians 5:9). HMM III

Should I date or marry an unbeliever? Ezra 10

Be true to the Lord. He will see you through. Amen.

Bible in a Year Blog

6823972195_7bd8132bc6_z

Today’s reading: Ezra 8-10.

There may be no more discouraging situation for young Christians today than the problem of finding a believing mate. The problem could become more difficult in the future as Christians become more of a minority in our expanding  culture of “nones” – those who are affiliated with no church. Desperation may drive some, whether young or older, to seek mates from among the unbelieving. Also, love can be blind, and sometimes the heart binds itself to another before the mind considers whether it is wise to marry someone of a different faith or no faith.

This is not a new problem. The Israelites who returned from exile also had issues with their members marrying unbelievers:

Then Ezra the priest stood up and said to them, “You have been unfaithful; you have married foreign women, adding to Israel’s guilt. Now make confession to the LORD, the God…

When you face opposition: Ezra 4-7

Lord, help us endure with your help, in our pursuit of fulfilling your will in our lives. May you be glorified. Amen.

Bible in a Year Blog

9453419601_99afb2097a_z

Today’s reading: Ezra 4-7.

Bump in the road. Detour. Road block. You can tell we Americans drive a lot. Just look at the way we use highway jargon to describe the difficulties we face off the road. The question is, how do you handle the detours and road blocks that pop up in your life? Do you easily get discouraged and give up? I hope you find the strength to push on through the difficulties and make it to the end of your road. That’s what the Israelites did when they faced opposition in rebuilding the temple.

It wasn’t long after the foundation stones were laid and the altar was rebuilt that the returning exiles faced major conflict:

Then the peoples around them set out to discourage the people of Judah and make them afraid to go on building. They hired counselors to work against them and frustrate their plans during…

Don’t despise discipline: Ezra 3

Lord, May we with contrite and humble heart accept your discipline, understand your purpose, make the changes and live for you alone. Amen.

Bible in a Year Blog

4777179676_dd0a1c1643_z

Today’s reading: Ezra 1-3.

Israel returned to the Promised Land after seventy years in a foreign land. Their release and return was a miracle of God’s grace, but the greater wonder is how they responded when they returned. They had no king, no temple, and little besides what they brought with them. They were descended from ancestors, kings and commoners alike, who had often abandoned the Lord and worshiped idols. Yet, when they returned to their former homeland they acted like the people of God.

  • They assembled as one in Jerusalem to observe the feast of Tabernacles.
  • They gave offerings to rebuild the temple.
  • They rebuilt the altar and offered sacrifices even though they feared the reprisal of neighboring countries.

The greatest evidence of their changed hearts was visible when the foundation stones of the new temple were laid.

With praise and thanksgiving they sang to the LORD: “He is…
