FREEDOM BEGINS WITH YOU

January 25, 2014

1478Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, in Galilee of the nations. The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. Thou hast multiplied the nation, and not increased the joy: they joy before thee according to the joy in harvest, and as men rejoice when they divide the spoil. For thou hast broken the yoke of his burden, and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of Midian” (Isaiah 9:1-4)

In our life, there are always “past times” and “subsequent times”. Whatever the past is, it always remains behind and we must look into the future. What kind of future will it be?

God’s will in relation to people has not changed – it is to bless and to exalt us, to give us something good. Jesus Christ said: “I am come that they might have life and have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). The Apostle James wrote, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variableness or shadow of turning” (James 1:17) God desires the light to shine in every life! Why then there is so much darkness?

VALUES OF OUR LIFE (Part 2)

October 18, 2013

The value of God’s people

bril

When we read in the Bible about the great people, we admire their victories and strive to be like them. But not everybody succeeds for one reason: it is important to see not just a success, but what is behind it. Every man of God may sooner or later be tested in his or her reverential trust, in life values ​​and priorities.

For the shepherd David Lord was the greatest value, and He continued to be the value for him when David became king. Getting access to God’s blessings, to fame and riches, David did not lose his head. He didn’t begin to grasp treasures and secretly save and count the money. David’s heart was still with the Lord, and it helped him to come through years and not to lose everything.

Moses, being with the people in the middle of the desert, did not fear people’s opinion, and very specifically said to God, “If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence” (Exodus 33:15). Moses knew the value of God in his life and therefore did not want to take a step without him. (more…)

Every day of our life is filled with lots of work and concerns. Various meetings, ideas, dreams, plans, projects… Sometimes we prosper, sometimes fail. Today we rejoice at the success of some kind, and tomorrow the next problem plunges us into depression.

Many years can run this way. Outwardly, things can seem quite safe, but sooner or later we begin to feel as if we faced the closed door, behind which something real is hidden- a true value, without which it is impossible to have a major success, peace and joy. (more…)

HE DID NOT DESCEND FROM THE CROSS

May 3, 2013

“And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, Save thyself, and come down from the cross. Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes, He saved others; himself he cannot save. Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him reviled him” (Mark 15:29-32).

Pain, suffering, loneliness, betrayal, ridicule, insults … Probably everyone sooner or later had to deal with it. But to go through all these things at the same time was not possible for anyone other than Jesus Christ, the Son of God. He was beaten and tormented beyond recognition, but even seeing him dying, people still continued to mock and taunt Him… (more…)
