Great Persecution
Topic: Persecution

And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles. And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him. As for Saul, he made havock of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed them to prison. (Acts 8:1-3 KJV)

There was a Pharisee named Saul, who killed the first Christian evangelist, Stephen, and began persecuting other believers in Jesus Christ. As we see, Saul (later became known as Paul) was like other Pharisees in Jesus’ days. Even though he thought he was doing God’s work, Saul’s mission was killing Christians. But God did not stop caring for Saul. Instead, He made Saul turn his life 360 degree.

As we see today’s world, we often hear about Christian persecution in the other parts of the world, especially in Moslem nations. I read many terrifying stories from the Voice of Martyrs magazines, who experienced pains and agonies from the other religious leaders, because of their faiths in Jesus Christ. We cannot imagine how they can survive from all their tribulations. If our country wasn’t founded by God, who can help the persecuted Christians and Jews? However, the stories don’t end there. Because of the persecution, many people started to call Jesus and brought revival in their villages.

I know our country is facing most difficult time with our economy system. Even though we are very fortunate with our Christian foundation, we also see that many citizens are suffering because of our legal choices. We let the churches to be silenced on homosexual agenda, abortion rights, legalizing same-sex marriage. Currently, President Obama is trying to make universal healthcare as legal. Listen: governments will control the universal healthcare. This also could lead us into New World Order System, system of Antichrist, and it is seriously dangerous.

Are you going to give your identity to antichrist when the government would introduce to us new technologies to serve the world? Or are you not giving your faith up for Jesus Christ? Choices are yours.

World Religious System
Topic: End of the Age

If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. (James 1:26-27 KJV)

Even though the Word of God founded this country, America has turned away from the Creator and turned it to the day of Gomorrah and Sodom. People have been confused who God is. Although the September 11, 2001 tragedy woke this country up, it didn’t mean that people have fully committed to surrender to Jesus Christ.

We have adopted so many religions to this country over the years that some of us have died from the faith. We created many church denominations that we hardly agree on all the doctrines from the Word of God. If we are in Roman Catholicism, for example, we couldn’t interpret the Scriptures without priest’s approval. However, I Peter 2:9 says that we all are priests when we would save by the grace of God through Jesus Christ. We should give our worship to Jesus Christ only. I understand this theology conflicts with Roman Catholicism, because they added Virgin Mary as coequal with God.

Christianity was originally from Jewish root. Paul tells us that we are seeds of Abraham (Galatians 3:20-29). Before God called Abraham as forefather of the nation, all human beings were non-Jews. Noah was considered as gentile, even though he was the great-great-grandfather of Abraham.

Now, we have top four greatest religions that would form the New World Order in near feature. They are Roman Catholicism, Christianity, Islam, and Judaism. Right now, the United Nation is trying to make President Obama and Prime Minister of European as permanent world dictatorship, which they could lead us to Antichrist, One World Government, One World Currency, and One World Religion.

Christianity is not just a world greatest religion, but it’s about personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Virgin Mary, Buddha, or Zeus cannot do that. There was no other gods who resurrected themselves from graves, except Jesus Christ. If you want to know Jesus Christ personally, I’d like to encourage you to invite Him into you life now. Let go all the gods you have and grab Jesus’ garment and ask Him to come into your life.

The Resurrection of Saints
Topic: Resurrection
But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. (I Thessalonians 4:13-18 KJV)

Will you be when Jesus would come today to take His Church to Heaven? In this passage of the Scripture, Paul described the Rapture of the Church. Of course, we may hear on this subject from dozens of Christian authors, such as Hal Lindsay, David Breeze, Peter LeLeon, and Jack van Imp. But what God says about the Rapture of the Church?

The word “rapture” doesn’t appear in the Bible. But there are some Scriptural references that the rapture is existed in the Bible. The first rapture appears in the New Testament was when Jesus died on cross (Matthew 27:51-53), which it referred to the dead will rise first. These verses also mean that Jesus was working at underneath of the earth after He died on the cross. This was when the people were in paradise. Also, this place was when the people were at the mid-point between the Hell and earth crust.

I believe there will be couple raptures of saints during the seven-year of tribulation time. But where you would be when the event will take place? If you are not sure where you’d spend eternality, I’d like to encourage you to give your life to Jesus Christ as your personal Savior.

Flesh vs. Spirit
Topic: Living Life

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. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. (Ezekiel 36:26-27 KJV)

Today, I’d like to share with you on what God has been showing me lately. I believe that we are the last generation of the Book of Acts and Book of Revelation that will be fulfilled in our lifetimes.

The Book of Acts has never been finished because it’s ongoing process, even to this day. As we see in our society, the churches have been growing since the time of Jesus. However, there are many warfare going on within churches. And we are beginning to see some pastors expose to the world. Even though TBN and CBN are the most popular Christian Networks in America, some churches have been reported to the news media on their business tax deductions, such as Kenneth Copland and Joyce Meyer. Pastor Joel Osteen exposed his true identity of his ministry through CNN King Larry Live in June 2005. According to his interview, Pastor Joel Osteen doesn’t believe the doctrine of sin, divine judgment, hell, and false teachings. In fact, he believes that there are many ways to Heaven, just as Dr. Billy Graham told on nationwide while he was on Larry King Lives.

We need to be right with God. We cannot be double minded to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our current president is beginning to expose to the world as he’s heading to the development of the New World Order Plan. If the U.S. and the rest of the world would sign the microchip treaty by 2017, it would be ready for the Antichrist would come to the scene. But, those who are truly born-again Christian, we would be gone to be with our Heavenly Father before the appearance of Antichrist.

Are you ready for Jesus’ return? If not, I’d like to encourage you to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior today.

An Angel Promises the Birth of John to Zacharias III
Topic: John the Baptist

And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at the time of incense. And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense. And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him. (Luke 1:10-12 KJV)

Have you been in fear of the Lord? The word “fear” in this passage is trembling or did something wrong. As we read in Luke 1:10-12, we see that Zacharias was deeply in trouble. We may not understand why he felt like if God would judge him terribly when the angel of the Lord appeared to him. But it was a good sign.

We need to learn to fear in our lives. We need to have reverence for God. Fear teaches us how we need to be right with God. It also teaches us how we need to avoid our evil thoughts and actions against God and our people. Paul said that we are in war against the rulers of the darkness of this world (Ephesians 6:12). Fear in the Lord helps us to avoid all the tempt that Satan would try to deceive us and begin to rely on God.

Zacharias’ fear wasn’t the sacrifice, but it was about giving our praises to Him. Without fearing of the Lord, we would not able to know where we’d spend eternality.

Watch Out for False Teachers
Topic: End of the Age

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. (I Timothy 4:1-3 KJV)

Today, there are many Christian leaders, who proclaim to be truly born-again, trying to reach out to the world to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. However, there are some preachers on the media for wrong reasons. One of my friends shared with me about Noah and the ark. It was interesting to me how one TV evangelists believe that Noah built an ark for testing his faith that God gave him to do, and not for rain, according to my friend said. This is what we call half-truth and half-false or double minded.

According to Genesis 6-9, God told Noah to build an ark because He will bring a worldwide flood for 40 days and 40 nights. Also, He said to bring some animals into the ark. Yes, it did rain for 40 days and nights. To approve this theory, look at the world. We’d have about 70 percent of the earth that covers with water due to the worldwide flood that God brought. I believe that the earth began with perfect condition before the flood. About less than 70 percent of the earth covered with water. How do I know this? In Genesis 1 and the last chapter of the Book of Revelation, we can see that the new earth will be in perfect condition. All the lands will be putting back together as one huge land. God will settle His government on earth forever.


We suppose to be aliens of this world. It’s not good to hear smooth messages from pastors on the pulpit. This would make us to go further away from God. Even though pastors are to be shepherds of the Churches, we are suppose to be checked their sermons with the Bible, because it comes from God and not from humans that has many scars from our sins.

A Better Day Ahead
Topic: Living Life

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. (I Peter 1:3-5 KJV)

Today, I’d like to bring a subject on hope. This hope is not a verb, but noun. Today, we see there is many things appear to be going wrong. We are beginning to see our country is beginning to go on a wrong direction of American life. We see that many people decided to destroy the tradition marriage by adding the same-sex marriage into the constitution. We see that the American president is trying to take all sides to make everybody happy. We see that many unborn children are dying without seeing the light of the world. Is there hope from all these issues?

The world gives us the peace that is lasted for while. But there is a peace that is everlasting. Jesus says in John 14:27, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.” We can have peace in money, but it doesn’t satisfy to our spirits need. We can have idols in our houses, but they will not speak to us. We can take the Mark of Beast in our right hands or foreheads, but that will lead us to hell. We are getting closer when our economic system can go into the human skins. This is what we called the One World Economy, which is the part of the New World Order that our presidents announced over the years.

But we do not have to join with the Antichrist and his system. His system is not new. We have to understand that we are in spiritual battleground. We have to make stand what we believe for. We can have hope that we can win the battle with Jesus Christ on our sides against the darkness; or we can loose the battle and give the victory to Satan.

We need to pray for our nation to return to the ONE NATION UNDER GOD. I don’t mean to any god, but God’s Son, Jesus Christ.

If you are new to the Christianity, I’d like to encourage you to take a look through some books and do the research on Christianity and faith. If you’d like to accept Jesus Christ as you personal Savior, I’d like to encourage you to confess your sins by asking Him for forgiveness and invite Him to your life.

An Angel Promises the Birth of John to Zacharias II
Topic: John the Baptist

And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years. And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest’s office before God in the order of his course, According to the custom of the priest’s office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord. (Luke 1:7-9 KJV)

As we continue to study on the birth of John the Baptist, we note another thing about his parents. Zacharias and Elisabeth were advanced their ages. What thru can do in their old ages? I’d know when the people would reach 65, it is the time for retirement.

As we read today’s passage, we read that Elisabeth and Zacharias were still in labor. They might feel tire, but they had God in their lives. We will see how this couple received a child from God. I think that believers in Christ should keep working for God until their time to be with Him.

It is interesting that there is a retirement plan for the young adults; even they haven’t experienced full adult lives. We see there is a life insurance plan for toddlers. Having a retirement plan is not against God’s will, but we should be kept working for Him until He’d call us top enter our eternal home.

An Angel Promises the Birth of John to Zacharias I
Topic: John the Baptist

There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth. And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless. (Luke 1:5-6 KJV)

Here, we begin the message series on the birth of John the Baptist. Please don’t confuse with the Gospel writer John. As we read in the first half portion of John 1, we read that John the Baptist was the forerunner of Jesus. His job was to prepare a road for Jesus to walk to His peoples’ lives (see Mark 1:1-2). He baptized them with the water (John 1:31), but Jesus came to baptize them with the Holy Ghost (John 1:33). We will study more in-depth on baptism of the Holy Ghost (Spirit) later on.

But, let’s focus on Elisabeth and Zacharias for the next several messages. The named Zacharias is a Greek form of Zechariah, which means “memory of the Lord.” First part of the name refers to the prophet whom the Jews stoned (Matt. 23:35; Luke 11:51). Some believe this prophet to be identical with Zechariah [11] or [16], though it is possible the reference is to an unknown prophet. Then there is a priest, father of John the Baptist (Luke 1).

Then there is a woman name Elisabeth, God is swearer; oath of God, the wife of Zacharias and mother of John the Baptist (Luke 1:5–57).

As we read, Zacharias and Elisabeth lived during the depression time by King Herod. Just as we are facing the economic system issue, the people of Judea faced taxes that were forced by this pagan ruler. Also, in Luke 1:5, we see that Zacharias was from the descendant of Aaron, who was the priest for the people of Israel.

They were righteous before God, even though there were some doubts. Do you know that God will still bless us, even though we’d doubt His words? Thomas doubted on Jesus’ resurrection until he touched Jesus’ palms. I know there are some people in the world who doubt on their children with severe disabilities. Even you’d have a child with disabilities, it doesn’t mean that your family is in generation curse. You have to release the negative thoughts on your mind and begin to trust on God that He can do anything possible. As we see on our civil rights, they would begin to turn our laws to negative effect to this Christian nation. The problem is not on our money, but it’s on our sinful acts against God. Our previous and current presidents have led our nation astray from God, because we did not fight against abortion, same-sex marriage, teen’s pregnancy, homosexual rights agenda, and so on. It is the time for the churches to make noises against on these issues. We need to stop our doubts on God and begin to trust on Him.

The Genealogy of Jesus Christ II
Topic: Jesus Christ

Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. (Genesis 12:1-3 KJV)

The birth of Jesus did not begin with Virgin Mary, but it was the seed of Abraham. Matthew 1:1 says, “The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.” It also means that we are the seed of Abraham through Jesus Christ.

The Book of Genesis indicated that Abraham did not begin his life as Jew, but as the Gentile. This is so important fact about Abraham and Jesus. The foundation of the Jewish nation began with Jacob. Of course, God continuous carried His covenant since He made it with Abraham. Galatians 3:28-29 says, There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

We need to have knowledge of the Old Testament for us to understand about the New Testament. I know that there are some people would think the Bible has two gods—judgmental god in the Old Testament and the lovely god in the New Testament. We must understand that there is ONLY one God in the Bible, who created this universe and us, who came to the earth and paid our sins for us by dying on the Cross. That Person is our Lord Jesus Christ.

This is why the Bible recorded so many lists of geologies. We need to understand the pagan religion began with Babel, then to one of Noah’s sons, and then to Abraham’s father. Then finally to Abraham’s first son, Ishmael. This is why we have so much conflict with Islam. Even though Islamic, Jewish, and Christianity proclaim to be the seed of Abraham, yet, we have made so much of chaos from each other. This is why Jesus didn’t die only for Jews, but for the sins of everybody in this world.

The Genealogy of Jesus Christ I
Topic: Jesus Christ

The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham… So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations. (Matthew 1:1, 17 KJV)

The Bible has filled with genealogies. The word “genealogy” is from Middle English genealogie, from Anglo-French, from Late Latin genealogia, from Greek, from genea race, family + -logia -logy; akin to Greek genos race. This word has been used since 14th century. This term is an account of the descent of a person, family, or group from an ancestor or from older forms; or regular descent of a person, family, or group of organisms from a progenitor or older form.

This term “genealogy” is very important in both Jewish and Christian life. It tells us about where did our Christianity from. It tells us about who Jesus is. Without the understanding of our Christianity with Jewish root, we may not have Christianity. We are from the seed of Abraham (Galatians 3:17), which God promised to him in Genesis 12.

Matthew 1:1-17 and Luke 3:23-38 tell us that Jesus came from the seed of Abraham. In fact, Luke goes down to seed of Adam. Even though Jesus was with God in the beginning (John 1), He arrived to this world through the womb of Virgin Mary. This does not mean that Mary received the divine power and coequal with God, which the Roman Catholicism teaches. Jesus came to the world just as any human being born, so He can be related with us in every way.

This is Whom We Need to Follow
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. And of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace. For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. (John 1:14-18 KJV)

There are many religions understand who Jesus is, but they don’t understand that He is also the Son of God. There are many theories about Him from the world point views. For example, Moonies (the unification church) believe that Jesus uncompleted His earthly task before He ascent to Heaven.

However, the Bible says that Jesus came to the earth as fully God and Man. He did not come to the earth to marry Mary Magdalene as the Da Vinci declares. He visited to our planet to bring His people back to Himself.

There is no other gods in the world cannot duplicate what He already has done. They can heal the sick person, but they may not able to raise the person from dead. They may try to pray to gods to burn the fire on the woods, but are their gods going to listen to their requests? Paul said that Jesus created everything in the earth and the heaven (Colossians 1:16). He was with God before the universal arrived into place. I know not every denominational church may disagree on this doctrine, but Colossians 1:16-18 and John 1:1-18 made clear statements that Jesus was the Creator of the world. The Trinity began in Genesis 1 and not in the church era.

As you read the rest of John 1, John the Baptist let his follower go and let them to follow Jesus. He is the reason that we need to follow Him. We can careless about what we are doing for ourselves, but when we’d come to Him, we need to tremble and fear Him. He has the final decision for our lives. Currently, Obama’s Stimulus Plan is trying to save our economic crisis, but it cannot guarantee if our system issue would survive under his global financial plan. But we can count on Jesus for everything that He would like to give us. He has the solution for our lives and for the rest of the world.

Son of God
Topic: Jesus Christ

But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. (John 1:12-13)

How did Jesus born on earth? I know many of us would think that Jesus was born through Mary and though the lineage of David. But, as we read in John 1:12-13, Jesus was born because of God. God brought Him here. Even though He had the human blood, Jesus was born on the earth because of His Father.

Why did God pick a young virgin girl to be the mother of Jesus? Most Catholicism believes that Mary was sinless for God to pick her to be the mother of Jesus. Even though the Bible doesn’t have record of Mary’s sin acts, it doesn’t mean that she was sinless. Romans 3:23 says that we all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Even God knew that Mary was imperfect person in the world; He looked what was in her heart (I Samuel 16:7).

God brought Jesus for the purpose of saving the lost souls. In the last day, God uses His Son, Jesus, to bring His people back unto Himself (Hebrews 1:1-3). I believe that we are in the last day before Jesus would return to wipe out all the destruction of the earth and restore what it was originally created.

Do you want to be sons and/or daughters of God? Many of His people didn’t recognize Jesus as God’s Son. So to us, when we’d come as God’s children, the world will not recognize us as the rest of people. Instead, the world will hate us because of our beliefs in Jesus Christ.

The World Doesn’t Know Jesus
Topic: Gospel


He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. (John 1:10-11 KJV)

How did the people miss Jesus’ coming? Did the people expect His coming would like the presidential inauguration parade? By the way, President Obama used the coming of the Messianic theme for his inauguration parade, which it could lead to the stage of developing the New World Order. Many people in the Old Testament expected the coming of Messiah as the King of the world, but not as the baby in a manger. Even though Jesus will come as the King for this world in near future, He first arrived to this world as a Baby, so He can be related to us.

Throughout the first four books of the New Testament, we see that Jesus walked with His feet to do God’s work. There was no parade event on His birth and resurrected from dead. There was no Christmas celebration at the barn. We have misused Christmas and Easter so much and have forgotten the real historical facts of these holidays. These two holidays have nothing to do with Jesus and Christianity, but have to do with Pagan holidays. In Jeremiah 10, for example, we see that the Israelites used the tree and decoration to worship the one of pagan gods. That was where the Catholic churches adopted the ritual practice and brought it to Christian churches in the fourth-century AD.

Sadly, we don’t hear the basic gospel message of Jesus Christ in churches as often. We may hear about small portion of the gospel message at the church services, but the rest of the message maybe on the Christian living, prosperity, our civil rights, and etc. We have noticed that our current President has decided to change all President Bush’s laws, starting with the Civil Rights. Now, President Obama legalized that the people can have the right to have abortion and let the homosexual citizens can free express their rights publicly. We need to pray for our leaders to turn their hearts to Jesus Christ and abandon their ungodly decisions.

Jesus came to this world as a baby without receiving any worldly recognition award from the world. But when it would be the time for Him to return to the world, everybody in all four corners of the earth will recognize Him as the King of kings and Lord of lords. He will judge our nation, even if President Obama would still lead this nation and continue to legalize ungodly laws. This is why our economy system is so corrupted. We are following our own direction. We let ungodly leaders without repentant their sins to lead our nation, such as leaders from Bone and Skull Society (Satanism), Witchcraft, and Freemason.

Are you saved? Is your loved ones saved? If you aren’t sure where you’d spend eternality, I’d like to encourage you to make your decision today. God loves you and cares about you. He doesn’t like to see any of us to go to Hell. But He cannot make your decision for you. Paul said in Romans 10:9-10, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

In KJV Life Application says regarding John 1:10-11, “Although Christ created the world, the people he created didn’t recognize him… Even the people chosen by God to prepare the rest of the Messiah rejected him…, although the entire Old Testament pointed to his coming.”

Birth and Preparation of Jesus Christ III—God Became a Human II
Topic: Jesus Christ

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. (John 1:6-9 KJV)

As we will keep study on the Birth and Preparation of Jesus Christ, we also look at John the Baptist in this portion of John 1. This John is not the author of all four books of John or follower of Jesus Christ.

Malachi says, “Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.” Even though this verse relates to the coming of the Messiah, Jesus Christ, it also relates to John the Baptist as well.

Now, who was John the Baptist? What was his mission? Even though we will study more on his background when we’d come to Luke 1, Apostle John gave us some descriptions of this guy’s character.

John the Baptist was the witness to the Light. He came to the earth for one purpose. That was being a witness to Jesus Christ. John 1:15 says, “John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.” Just as we received the commission from Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18-20), John the Baptist received the call from God to make a road to Jesus Christ.

Are you making a road for Jesus Christ to your life and the life of your loved ones? Confessing your sins to priests will not help you. Only through your relationship with Jesus Christ will make you to live with Him forever.

This Tuesday is the U.S. Presidential Inauguration and Barak Obama will become the 44th U.S. President, but he cannot save us all from tragedies. No! We already have seen that he signed the bills that women have the right to have abortion, have the homosexual rights in our country, and continue expand President Bush’s faith-based ministries. (Don’t be surprised that the next president will keep the same policy as the last twenty years of Presidents Bush-Clinton-Bush) If President Obama would recognize that we have the idol in our U.S. Capitol and change his way to lead our country, it would be miracle.

Our country would need true prophet, like John the Baptist, to return our ways to the way of the Lord. God is waiting patiently for us to turn our ways to His. It is up to us what our actions would be.

Birth and Preparation of Jesus Christ II—God Became a Human I
Topic: Jesus Christ

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. (John 1:1-5 KJV)There are many theologies about how this universal was created in the beginning of time. Some say the earth was created by a big bang explosion. If this is true, who began to create the big bang before its explosion? There are many theologies about the earth creation, but the Bible tells us who created the planet.

In Genesis 1:1, it tells us that God created the heaven and the earth. The earth cannot create by itself. As we’d keep read on Genesis 1, God designed the universe by using His spoken words. Also, we see there were three persons that involved the creation—the God of the Father, God of the Son (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit.

Throughout the Old Testament era, we see God as the Spirit. But, after 400 years of silence, God came to the earth as human being.

In John 1, John tells us that there was the Word in the beginning. In Hebrew Scripture, the Word was an agent of creation (Psalm 33:6), the source of God’s message to His people through the prophets (Hosea 1:2), and God’s Law, His standard for holiness. In Greek philosophy, the Word means the divine essence that hold all things together, God’s ideal pattern for creation.

As we read the first five verses in John 1, we see that Jesus Christ was the Word in the beginning. We need to understand how the New Testament began. Jesus was the beginning of all things. We would not be existed when there was no beginning point. Paul says in Colossians 1:16-18, “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence."

Birth and Preparation of Jesus Christ I: Luke’s Purpose of Writing

Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us, Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word; It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus, That thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed. (Luke 1:1-4 KJV)

As we begin a long series on the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we will first look at the purpose of the first four books of the New Testament. Even though the first four verses in Luke 1 relates to Luke’s writing, it also tells the main reason for the books of Gospel.

In Enhanced Strong’s Lexicon, the word “gospel” means a reward for good tidings or good tiding. The New Century Version dismisses the word “gospel” and has been replaced with “good news” for at least 102 times. The gospel means: “1) the glad tidings of the kingdom of God soon to be set up, and subsequently also of Jesus the Messiah, the founder of this kingdom. After the death of Christ, the term comprises also the preaching of (concerning) Jesus Christ as having suffered death on the cross to procure eternal salvation for the men in the kingdom of God, but as restored to life and exalted to the right hand of God in heaven, thence to return in majesty to consummate the kingdom of God; 2) the glad tidings of salvation through Christ; 3) the proclamation of the grace of God manifest and pledged in Christ; and 3) as the messianic rank of Jesus was proved by his words, his deeds, and his death, the narrative of the sayings, deeds, and death of Jesus Christ came to be called the gospel or glad tidings.”

Many today’s churches have lost the truth of the words of God, because some of us may have decided to apart from the faith and gives ears to the doctrines of devils (see I Timothy 4:1). As we see, many churches are celebrating Easter Sunday and Christmas as the part of Christian heritage. Truly, these two holidays arrived from the pagan religion and have nothing to do with our Lord Jesus Christ.

In this new study series, we will search carefully through the Scriptures to learn the true aspect of the Christianity. There are many preachers in the world today, who proclaim to be the true churches of Jesus Christ, but may have misled by the church doctrines. There aren’t certain doctrines we should or shouldn’t have in order to be followers of Jesus Christ. We are not separated by any church denominations. We all belong to one Lord, one Savior, one King, who is Jesus Christ. There are no Baptist, Lutheran, Methodist, and Pentecostal churches in Heaven. The reason why many churches are corrupted, because we have decided to create several doctrines in order for us to be children of God.

In order for us to become children of God, we need to obey Him fully without changing His words. We need to search the Scripture carefully in order for us to understand God’s purpose.

Leadership 104: Born to Become a Leader
Topic: Leadership Training

Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child. But the LORD said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak. Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the LORD. (Jeremiah 1:4-8 KJV)
Look to the life of Jeremiah. God already called him to become His messenger for His people while he was in his mother’s womb. Even though you may have unborn baby, do not decide to have abortion. I know this maybe the easiest thing to do when the couple wouldn’t want baby in their lives. The Bible recorded how King Pharaoh and King Herod wanted to kill babies. However, there maybe some options to save the life of your unwanted child. God can use the child to save His people from the darkness as Moses did. Or God can use the child as Jeremiah to proclaim His messenger.

Paul said in I Timothy 4:12, “Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.”

As we see in today’s America, we have become more like the people in Sodom and Gomorrah. We have seen many tragedies over the last decade because the American has been turning away from God. Some America churches have turning away from very its foundation and turn them into the house of selling merchandises.

We need to wake ourselves up and bring our national foundation back. Even our $1 bill has Freemason symbol on it, one of occultism. Do we think that there would not be a judgment of God in this country? Think again and research yourselves about our national history. Celebrating Christmas is the one of pagan practices which we have carried over many years; yet, some churches haven’t realized this occult holiday practice. In fact, Christmas doesn’t relate to the birth of our Savior, but it’s Christ’s Mass, which the Catholic Churches practice on sacrificing our Lord Jesus Christ shamefully.

We need to raise our youths to be appointed by God to lead our nation.

How many of you born to become a leader? A leader for the nation. A leader for the company. A leader for the Civil Rights. No matter what your ultimate life goal is, you will have experienced leadership skills. In fact, we all will become a leader of our life activities.

Leadership 102: Being a Courageous Leader
Topic: Leadership Training

There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them. Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest. This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. (Joshua 1:5-8 KJV)

Now, I’d like to take you through leadership class 102. In the previous training, we went through obedience class. We must obey our leaders in order to be the second commander of chiefs. Now, here’s the second step in order to be a godly leader. We look back to the history of Joshua’s leadership.

Before Moses died, he chose his assistant to be the next leader to lead God’s people into Promise Land. Why? Joshua demonstrated his leadership role when the obstacles were challenged. Remember, he and Caleb were the only ones who chose to go to the battlefield to get the land for their people as Moses commanded. We must have courage before we’d decide to lead our nation. The Bible is not an only history book, but it is also an instruction for godly living or BIBLE (Basic Information Before Leaving Earth).

Currently, our nation is in economic crisis. Do you know why we are in $700 billion bailout situation? Even though many hurricanes destroyed our homes and supplies, our nation also borrowed so much of money from foreign country, such as China, for military purposes. Our nation is into materialism and cannot trust God to provide our nation needs. Let’s look into presidential election for a moment. Currently, McCain and Obama are trying to make false statements about their own opponents to win the election. One says he is trying to raise our taxes high to save our economic crisis and another says as totally opposite. What happened to our nation is turning our focus away from God. This was not a case in 1700s-1800s. But we are seeing many homosexuals come out from their closets, abortion and crime rates are going high, the education grading systems are lower standards, and Christian rights are taken away from the public community.

We need to pray for our nation. Mostly, we need to bring God’s name back to this country. We do not need to build more churches because we are the temples of the Holy Spirit. God commanded us don’t be discourage to lead our people. Even though this is what Satan wants us to do, we cannot step ourselves down as defeat by him. Instead, we need to obey God and have courage to lead our nation.

Leadership 101: Obey God Carefully
Topic: Leadership Training

Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him. (Exodus 23:21 KJV)

Do you like to follow the hundred pages of instructions in order to make your brand new HD television works? Probably not. We always skip pages to read the TV and other manuals. But if we don’t follow the instruction, how can we do in our career field?

Sometimes, we wouldn’t like to follow our schoolteachers, parents, lawyers, doctors, and even God’s instruction. As a result, we would fail the test. Even God gave a road map to the Promise Land, the Israelites decided to refuse God’s command and spent their lives in the wilderness for forty years.

This coming November is a critical month for the U.S. Presidential Election. We have Obama or McCain is trying to go to the White House. We should not elect either of candidate by their looks or what they would promise to do for us, but for their oaks on the Word of God. The last two presidents, Clinton and Bush, failed their oaks on the Word of God. In fact, nobody, from previous presidents, didn’t realize that we have idol (statue) in our capitol that don’t represent Christian nation. This is why we have terrorist attack, crime, natural disaster, and capitol punishment. We didn’t remove our idols, including the national idol, and decided to Christianize them.

Let’s harkened to the words of God carefully.
