A Call to Pray
Topic: Nation

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.  (II Chronicles7:14 KJV)

 

We need to pray and steadfast for our nation more than ever today.  As our nation is continuing to transform into Sodom and Gomorrah, we see that God's judgement is very near upon this nation.  Paul said in Ephesians 6:12, "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

 

Currently, our children are in a dangerous situation with their identities.  Some of you have thought for them to read Henry Potter books as the part of school curriculum was not acceptable because of witchcraft practices.  Now, schools are pushing more further for children to stay away from God and their family values.  It was not enough for our nation to open the door for other religions and homosexual couples take over our communities and homes.  Satan always want to attack our little ones.  Why he's attacking children?  Read Matthew 18:1-3: "At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven."  We are the children of God and Satan hates us to become the part of His family.

 

Right now, President Obama and government are twisting our constitutional laws.  Since our president selected liberal judges to serve in Supreme Court, our nation has the right to kill unborn child through abortion process, let our nation have homosexual marriage, legal to sell marijuana, and now on transgender. 

 

We need to stand our gaps and fight a good fight "against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."  Are you ready to stand our gaps for children, family, community, church, and nation?  Let's call God and surrender ourselves to Him.

The Early Church Eras (Acts 1:18-20): Betrayer
Topic: Act of Apostles

Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out. And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood. For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let another take.  (Acts 1:18-20 KJV)

 

Acts 1:18 needs to be correlated with Matthew 27:3–10. The simplest explanation may be found in the principle that, whereas in Acts Luke records all events (such as the acts of Judas), Matthew distinguishes between what Judas did and what the priests did. Remember, Judas betrayed Jesus by handed Him over to Roman emperor and the priests tried to make Him guilty to abolish the Law of Moses. Priests did not understand that He came to the world to fulfill the laws.

 

In Matthew 27:3-10, we see that Judas betrayed Jesus with thirty pieces of silver, and he came to realize what he did was wrong. Have we ever betray Jesus with the worldly possession? Even we cannot give Jesus away to FBI or Supreme Court, we put Him in a small box with our favorite things to do, such as Sunday Night Football or going on a shopping spring.

 

Romans 3:23 tells us that we all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. It is necessary to realize that we are the sinners. Don't blame Adam and Eve to bring the sin nature of this world. They already shared their false. It is our turn to repent our sins to God. We have turned away from God and rely on the things of this world. I John 2:15-16 says, "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world." We cannot embrace the love of this world with God. This is the problem with today's Christian artists. Some of their songs have emerge with worldly tunes. Instead, their songs are praising and honoring God, their songs draw to the world and make multimillionaire.

 

Do we have darkness spots in our hearts? We can clean that spots that are inside of us with the blood of Jesus.

 

Do you have your relationship with the Heavenly Father? If not, I like to encourage you to develop your personal relationship with Jesus Christ today. First, confess your sins and invite Jesus Christ to your life. Paul said in Romans 10:9-11, “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.” There is no sinner prayer formula. Instead, you just talk to God at where you are now. Secondly, I’d like to encourage you to find a good solid biblical teaching church and Christian friends. They can help you to build strong relationship with God.

The Early Church Eras (Acts 1:15-17): Obtaining the Works of Ministry of Jesus Christ
Topic: Act of Apostles
And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples, and said,  (the number of names together were about an hundred and twenty,) Men and brethren, this scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus. For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry. (Acts 1:15-17 KJV)

 

When we began this portion of the Scripture previously, we studied on how does the corporate worship impacts us physically and spiritually. It is important for us to have fellowship each other as having personal time with God. We need both personal time with God and fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ.

 

As we read in this passage of the Holy Scripture, we must understand why Peter thinks missing a member is important to obtaining the works of the ministry. Even though God doesn’t care about the number, one missing person is important to the whole group. Jesus said in a parable in Luke 15:4-7, “What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost. I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.”

 

Also, the number twelve means government. We need a governmental structure to lead the lost souls into Christ. As we see today, our governmental structure is broken into many pieces. Many people do not know what is right from sinning against God. Recently, we let Supreme Court ruled over homosexual agenda over this country. Many people think that they are doing God’s favor, even though it is against His Words. We need to restructure our government system, not depend on our view, but God.

 

Our land needs another spiritual awakening. We are, I believe, walking away from God. Every e-mail update, I receive from ACLU, is concerning our nation. Right now, ACLU is fighting against the Planned Parenthood and the pro-choice. I am tickle when people tried to reword abortion with these word phrases to make sound good. There is nothing to say good about it. People are murdering their unborn children before they’d come out from mothers’ wombs. I don’t understand why people are concerning more about crime activities in the streets, but less concern about abortion. Again, we need to restructure our government system with the Holy Words of God.

 

Do you have your relationship with the Heavenly Father? If not, I like to encourage you to develop your personal relationship with Jesus Christ today. First, confess your sins and invite Jesus Christ to your life. Paul said in Romans 10:9-11, “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.” There is no sinner prayer formula. Instead, you just talk to God at where you are now.

The Early Church Eras (Acts 1:13-17): Corporate Worship
And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James. These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren. And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples, and said,  (the number of names together were about an hundred and twenty,) Men and brethren, this scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus. For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry. (Acts 1:13-17 KJV)

 

Now, it's waiting time for them to receive the promise from Jesus-the Holy Ghost. While Jesus' disciples were waiting in an upper room, except Judas Iscariot, they all came together to worship and fellowship each other with women, Virgin Mary, and His other people. Remember, Judas Iscariot committed a suicide after he betrayed Jesus to Pharisees. Even though he committed a crime, Jesus understood that it must be done according to the Old Testament prophecy.

 

While they were waiting, there are some points we need to learn from this passage. First, we need to have continual fellowship each other. Even though Jesus was not with His disciples, it does not mean that they can forget about whole things. We read that before Jesus left from the earth, He gave them the Great Commission, which it reads in Matthew 28:18-20: "And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen." It is their turn to share the Gospel to the rest of the world. It is our turn to be in the priesthood (I Peter 2:9). Some today's Christian leaders said that we are "little gods," which it is unbiblical and misinterpretation of the Scripture. This is why we need to meditate on the Words of God daily. We cannot interpret the Scripture by our own understanding. King Solomon wrote in Proverbs 3:5-6, "Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."

 

To have fellowship with other church bodies is important to our lives. It gives comfort and encouragement before we go in our separate way. Not only that, it also gives us to go deeper unto the Words of God. Even though the Bible may seem to be ancient, it still relevant to our lives today.

 

Do you have your relationship with the Heavenly Father? If not, I like to encourage you to develop your personal relationship with Jesus Christ today. First, confess your sins and invite Jesus Christ to your life. Paul said in Romans 10:9-11, "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.

The Early Church Eras (Acts 1:9-12): Sign of His Second Coming
Topic: Act of Apostles

And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day's journey. (Acts 1:9-12 KJV)

 

After Jesus promised His disciples on the Holy Spirit and their next mission assignment, it was His departure to be with His Father. Remember, Jesus promised us to return to the earth to take us to Heaven. In the Book of Revelation said that we will be governing the new earth with Him. So, we don't need to be wondering about our future plan with Him. God left us with His Words of Promise-the Bible (Basic Information Before Leaving the Earth).

 

Let's read what Paul said about the second coming of Christ in I Thessalonians 4:16-18: "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." In this passage of the Holy Scripture, Paul said that all the people will see His returning. Even though the word "rapture" in the Bible, those who believe in Him "shall be caught up together with them in the clouds." Just stop and think a moment about what Paul had seen in his vision. It would be our reunion with Jesus Christ.

 

So, why His disciples should be surprise about Jesus' ascending to Heaven? They didn't need to be surprise. Everything what Jesus taught them was leading up to their turn to continue to do His mission. Whole Book of Acts is not about the birth of Christianity, because, as I said previously, God is careless about our religious group title. We don't hear the teaching on the Second Coming of Christ enough. It's all about our needs, not establishing our relationship with Jesus Christ. As we see and hear today's news, there are many global tragedies are happening, especially in Middle East as the prophecy is revealing to us. If your church would not be teaching on the Second Coming of Jesus and other biblical prophecies, you'd be missing very point about why we see many tragedies around the globe today.

 

Are you ready to meet Jesus Christ? God is holding back His judgment against America, but it would not last. Do you have your relationship with the Heavenly Father? If not, I like to encourage you to develop your personal relationship with Jesus Christ today. First, confess your sins and invite Jesus Christ to your life. Paul said in Romans 10:9-11, "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." There is no sinner prayer formula. Instead, you just talk to God at where you are now.
