…deliver us from…Amen!

Scriptural Reading: 2 Chronicles 7:14

It is not that I am compelled with my feelings to share this but rather have this thing that God wants us to know. Currently we are now facing a predicament with a virus that cannot be stopped and it is found everywhere in this world and to make mention even the experts as facing the wall.

If my people, which are called by my name,

As Christians we are obliged to reach upon our God in times of trouble. This is what He wants. He is our Father and being His children when we are in trouble, He wants us to come to Him!

shall humble themselves,

We have to surmise things at this point of time that we need help from our God(Father, Son and the Holy Spirit). We have to admit that time is not on our side and in order to get rid of this plague that we are having right now we have to admit once again that we can do nothing and it seems that death is clearly ahead of us rather than having a cure or even a vaccine.

and pray, and seek my face,

It is now the time that we approach the throne of grace and seek His face before it is too late. We have had a lot of punishments and I do not think that this is the will of God. What God wants us to do is approach Him, seek His face and humble ourselves in His glorious sight. It is now the perfect time to seek His face, pray and reveal the hidden things that has been preventing us to know His will.

and turn from their wicked ways;

He said that if we discontinue with the things that He hates….

then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

In some parts of the world right now people are suppose to stay in their homes as the best option in order not to acquire the virus. It may sound and look like an apocalyptic scenario in a film that we might have seen in a flick but this is the truth and the only truth that we have to do right now is that we should humble ourselves under the mighty hands of God. It is obvious that what we are suffering right now and it can only be remedied by our prayers to our God Almighty. Only our God can make the impossible possible. Yes, He heard our prayers already, He will cleanse us from our wrongdoings and will heal every thing in us. Yes, everything!

Heavenly Father, we give you all the honor and praise. We pray, seek your face and we humble ourselves to you. Cleanse us from our wrongdoings as we accept your Son Jesus into our lives. We claim the victory upon all the afflictions, frailties and infirmities that we suffering right now through your Son Jesus our Lord and Savior. Amen!

‘Sup?’

Scriptural Reading: Acts 17:23,1 Peter 1:16

We have to keep track on all the things that we do. We need to know things what comes next after the other whether if its from our job or a simple thing to do in our home sweet home(where Jesus also lives!) or even with our free time and for some who had a not so favorable result from an endeavor. This also goes with our spiritual lives.

‘Wassup’? I like the sound of this word but what really is meaningful about this is that it conveys a message completely with ease and comfort and making the message completely comprehended. Some of the responses that you will be having are ‘Nothing much, and you?’, ‘just hanging around’, ‘just chilling and snoozing’.

This word is not biblical of what we mean. Sup in the bible means to eat, but the sense of what we mean when we say sup is divine in its meaning. God wants us to know Him fully through revelation and He has to do it the easier way we can know and have it. Remember, revealing something from God is divine. God may not say a word like sup or wassup but He always make sure what He wants to get the message across to us with out any iota of doubt and that is why this is divine. It is always going to be perfectly clear and well defined to us, just like if someone tells us sup and we know exactly our response will be.

v.23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.

Revelation is a requisite and indispensable for us to know Him more and His will for us. For some Christians today, they know God by their minds and mouth but not within. One thing for sure is that God would definitely reveal things to us only if we are willing to accept it. If we have no idea of how, then we will definitely go nowhere.

God is Omnipresence and therefore God resides in us. Yes, inside of us(See I Corinthians 6:19)and this is why we have no reason why we cannot communicate with God. He went through our spirit, soul and body. We can’t reach Him so He reached for us.

1 Peter 1:16

Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

Jesus restored our relationship and communication back to our Father in heaven. Our Father is Holy and so is our Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit continue to convict us. This is the main reason we should be holy. It is impossible for us to inhabit a holy place if we remain and continue to be unholy. God is continually making efforts to communicate with us. We have to go through with sanctification and His instructions should be met every single second of our lives.

Becoming holy requires us with a lot of instructions to our Father in heaven and communication is an integral part of it. God will definitely tell us a lot of things for us to become holy and we with no other way but to accept His instructions and these instructions will come in any minute or any second in our lives. God knows what we need and therefore we should always come to the throne of His grace and communicate to Him. If someone asks you sup what would you say? Think about God. He might be telling us something! Sup?

The powerful truth about words.

Scriptural Readings: Matthew 4:4

Have we given serious thoughts about how important words are or just even a word? In school we were taught that a sentence is a word or words grammatically linked, complete in itself together conveying a statement, question, exclamation, or command. But does this mean anything? A lot!

Words are not just bunch of letters constructed in a sentence all lined up in a paragraph saying what we want written on a paper or in our e mail or maybe words that we promise or tell others what we think of what maybe is good or bad. There are still some people though in some parts of this world who still believe the alakazam or the hocus pocus and a lot of these mumbo jumbo chant stuffs are still working for them.

If words written or spoken are packed together with the right intentions will result to powerful messages that can move lives. Every letter that we key in whatever device we have whether from a computer down to the smallest smart phone for a command will change entirely a peaceful and orderly world to a disorderly chaotic world, a total disaster or a scenario in a court giving freedom to a man when a judge from his judgement seat declares not guilty making him innocent accused of a crime he did not commit, setting him free.

When I was a kid, I was taught how words are important. Telling a lie is one thing that would put me into a lot of troubles and shame(totally true!). These are words. The same words that taught me what love is all about and how to get and earn respect on the letters that make up my name, our names!

v. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Starting our day with prayers as Christians, our faith tells us how important words are as we express ourselves to God not only of what our intents for Him but also to give Him praise, honor and glory! Words that we have to be true with as God has been to us.

The thing that we have to know, however, these powerful words from our Omnipotent God who created the universe came from Him, every word that proceeded out from the mouth of God, sitting from His throne. The source of everything is from our God. Every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God is our lives. With out God and His words we will cease to exist! The words He is saying to us might not be audible with our ears but we know God is the source of these powerful words we know inside of us.

There is nothing impossible for God. As a matter of fact He humbled Himself and He became a man. We called Him Jesus Christ. The words and commandments of Jesus are words from the throne of our almighty God! Making these words the words that we have to live by. The powerful truth about the Word!
