Power forever

Scriptural reading I Corinthians 1:18

It seems that for most of us both Christians and non believers, struggle is a form and a way to survive and then again, just a normal thing. To be a Christian is not easy and we have to conform our lives the way Jesus lived and He has been continually instructing us as He connect our spirit to the Holy Spirit.


For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness…(King James version)

For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing…(New American Standard Bible version)

As Christians we have the task to preach and share the Gospel of Jesus but as we share and preach this gospel to those who are perishing this Gospel of Jesus Christ does not mean anything. It is foolishness for them. The word foolishness in Greek is “moria” meaning silliness or absurdity. Moria is derived from the word “moros” and probably from the base of the word “musterion” meaning dull or stupid as if like saying shut up. Musterion is from a derivative of “muo” meaning shut the mouth. Knowing this, it tells us that we need power to get the message across. The POWER is not in us. The words we are preaching and sharing to them will not take effect unless POWER will be given to us.

….. but unto us which are saved it is the power of God”.

It is now clear as we share the Gospel of Jesus Christ we will be having POWER. The Gospel of Jesus is now the power of God handed to us. The words that we are going to preach and share become so POWERFUL because it will be coming from God. These words are coming from almighty God. Words will not mean anything and powerless unless it will be coming from our omnipotent God. The Holy Spirit will give us POWER and this will lasts as long as we live in God’s terms.

We have now an unrestricted and unlimited power that Jesus has given us. We have to use this to further His gospel.We have POWER from Jesus…FOREVER.


The space between….

Scriptural Reading Matthew 14:22-33.

Should there be always a space between ourselves and our faith in God? Lately I have been burdened with having a space between me and my faith in God. It is with difficulty on what, how, who and why I am having this kind of difficulty in my spiritual life.

It has been always that fear comes into the picture everytime we are to deal with this space between our faith and God.

v. 26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.

When their whole being was defeated by fear, they cried out. A thing which most of us like the disciples cannot handle we also cry a lot.Then Jesus CAME to their rescue and said…

v.27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.

v.28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.

Then Peter with his faith said “Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water”.

The space between the time when he started to communicate to our Lord Jesus created a lot of things running in his mind. His mind meaning related with his soul not his spirit. Being a human with a small amount of faith we now start to doubt and thus the question of Peter started with the word “if”. The word “if” implies and suggests something that is unconvincing. “Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water”. We know very well that if our faith comes from our soul which can disappear and not of the spirit will create in us a lot of things which would only produce frustrations not hope, faith and love. It will increase our inability to trust on the the trust that God has given us if we could have connected with our spirits to Him.

v.29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.

The Lord did say only a word “Come” and Peter walked. Yes, he walked on the water. The fear of the weather though suddenly came to his attention.Once again the fear came in to the picture. Fear of which the weather cause something that has taken Peter’s whole entire being taking all his humanly faith with him going down the water.

Despite having faith we still have to conquer and learn things that God has to say. Sometime in the future, again, we might be having a space between our faith and God. This will cause a lot of discomforts in us but God will shake us until what is left is pure faith that He has given and showing us and to trust in Him no matter how big the space between our spiritual faith and God.

v.31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth [his] hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

The answer is “COME”. This one word from the Lord Jesus is simply telling us to drop everything that we know including our earthly faith and accept his spiritual faith. He has invited us to fellowship with Him that no matter what… we are on GOOD HANDS.

Allow in us Lord God the faith that you have for us. A faith that will never fade nor waver even when times seem for us that there is a space between our faith and You. A faith that only your son Jesus can give. Amen!


Spiritual animation

Scriptural reading Matthew 5:14-16

As parents we always make sure that we get our messages get across to our children.One of the quickest and easiest way to enter and join them into their world is through animation. The character, color and the story would definitely perk a child and we can easily access into their whole entire being or their realm.

This also holds true to our Father in heaven. He is also doing the same things for us His children. Just as we earthly parents want to make sure that our children would be on the right track and so does with our Heavenly Father. The parables of Jesus is our Heavenly Father’s animation for us. We might not see the way kids do but then again it makes us think and try to paint pictures in our minds trying to figure out these things thus making these parables a kind of animation for us and teaching us what God wants us to do. These things God wants us to do is first will go through into our spirits then to our soul through our emotions and then to our mortal bodies.

Matthew 5:14

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

Jesus always make known to us that He is the “light of the world”.

John 8:12

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

John 9:5

As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

Jesus is our spiritual light in our life. We can never have the light. It will NEVER COME FROM US but rather He WILL SHINE FOR US and therefore we BECOME THE LIGHT of the world. This is what Father God wants to install in our lives the light of Jesus.

A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

As for the continuation and in the same manner, Jesus wants us to know that we being the city set on top of the hill would mean that it would be impossible for us not to be seen by anybody and if a city which is set on a hill this means that we are standing on the strength of God and what ever we will be doing, it cannot be hidden. God will be magnified.

Matthew 5:15

Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. If we are going to sum verses 14 and 15 we will arrive with verse 16.

Matthew 5:16

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

The light that shone which resulted the good work came from Jesus is exactly the thing that our Heavenly Father wanted for us to have. A thing that we cannot brag about that it came from us but from Jesus that the Father might be glorified. Once we acquired the SPIRITUAL light( into our spirit) our emotions(SOUL) reacting to the light would produce the GOOD WORKS( our mortal body) and finally glorifying God!

Let us be God’s children to our Father in heaven. God never stops on giving us instructions for our own good…. even if it is animation.. a spiritual animation.
