Is He Alive Today?
Topic: Holiday

For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. (I Corinthians 15:3-8 KJV)

 

Even though Jesus died on Wednesday evening, not on Good Friday, and resurrected on Saturday evening, we celebrate Resurrection Sunday as He is still alive and active God. He still wants to have personal relationship with each of us. I understand that there are many celebrations going on Easter as well as Christmas on the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Why these two holidays are the popular in the world? These holidays were originally arrived from the pagan holidays and they Christianized through Roman Catholicism between around 300 and 400 AD.

 

If Jesus died on Good Friday, as the world taught, and resurrected on  Easter Sunday, then God lied throughout the Scriptures and His Words would not be benefit to us. Hebrews 6:18 said that He cannot lie. If He does, then our faiths in Him would become worthless and we would not be existed today. The only sign that Jesus gave to His disciples about His death and resurrection was the sign of Jonah in Matthew 12:40, "For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth." I don't know how we can get three days and three nights from the world standard of Easter. The word Easter, in world standard, refers to pagan goddess, Ishtar; however, in King James Version in Acts 12:4, it refers to Passover. It never had mentioned the word Easter as the day of the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. Also, Easter bunny is represented as goddess of Sex, which we see the bunny symbol at the adult night club. If you understand the concept of Roman Catholicism and Paganism, you would find that many our traditions and holidays arrived from these two religions.

 

Jesus was the Passover the Lamb, which it means that He cannot be in the tomb close to the beginning of Sabbath (Friday at 6:01pm) and He needed to be in His tomb after Sabbath Day (Saturday at 6:00pm) to complete it. Most of us may believe that Jesus rose from the dead on early Sunday morning, which we came up with Sun Rising Service on Sunday. Actually, the pagan worshipped the goddess of Sun. If we read the text in the Bible, it says in Matthew 28:1, "…it began toward the first day of the week…" When the new day began? On evening as we read in Genesis 1:5. Of course, in early era, people didn't have calendar to tell which month they were in. Instead, they used the moon system to tell the month. Of course, after He rose from the dead, Jesus stayed fifty more days to be with His people before He ascent to Heaven.

 

Are you saved? Are your love ones and friends saved in the grace of God through Jesus Christ? The purpose of this article is to help you to become closer relationship with Jesus Christ. As Jesus said, "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms, if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am." (John 14:1-3.)

 

If you are lukewarm in your relationship with Jesus Christ and want to know Him as your personal Savior and Lord of your life, please consider asking Him to forgive your sins and invite Him into your life. Paul says, "That if you confess with your mouth, `Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believed and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved." (Romans 10:9-10.) If you have done in your private room or workplace, then you need to tell to your friends or love ones about what you have done, so they may rejoice with you and want to have that relationship with Christ in their own life. There are many occults in the world, which do not know the love of God and His great plan for those who believe in Him. As it is written in John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."

Seek Wisdom
Topic: Wisdom of God

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. (James 1:5-8 KJV)

 

We need to begin to seek the wisdom of God more than ever today. Our today's society has been downsizing and turned into chaotic situation. We have been trusting on men more than God to create more problems upon ourselves. Even though we need to be subjected under the government, God has final words to say so.

 

Currently, we have been seen that many people are concerned with President's executive order, such as immigration, affordable healthcare, and education issues. It is sad for me to see that many people rely more toward to President and the government system to fix the issues than giving all of our worries to God. First Peter 5:7 says that we need to cast all our care upon God, so that He can care us.

 

Do we know that our national debt has been rising more than $110 trillion since the Obama Administration? We will not get out from our national debt until two events would occur: New World Order, which it will occur by Antichrist; and God would settle His government on Earth after the 7-Year of Tribulation Period. Even though our nation was founded by the biblical principal, our nation always had been led by Secret Society leaders, such as Freemasonry and Bone & Skull.  You could search our presidents throughout the years and may find information that haven't been released to the media.

 

I believe we are living in the last day. Have you noticed that many local churches are getting smaller? Why is that?  Apostle Paul warned us that some people may decide to depart from the faith and give heed to lies (I Timothy 4:1-5). This is why we see that most megachurches have filled with 1,000 or more people every week. Paul declared, "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." (2 Timothy 4:3-4.)

 

We need to seek the true wisdom of God and not fable ones. Are you saved? Jesus didn't come to us to erase all of our sins, but to establish relationship with each of us. This is why we need to read and meditate on His words. You don't need to be a wisdom expert or knowing every verse in the Bible. God left us with His manual book, so we can read and share His love letters with other people.

 

Are you saved? Are your love ones and friends saved in the grace of God through Jesus Christ? The purpose of this article is to help you to become closer relationship with Jesus Christ. As Jesus said, "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms, if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am." (John 14:1-3.)

 

If you are lukewarm in your relationship with Jesus Christ and want to know Him as your personal Savior and Lord of your life, please consider asking Him to forgive your sins and invite Him into your life. Paul says, "That if you confess with your mouth, `Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believed and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved." (Romans 10:9-10.) If you have done in your private room or workplace, then you need to tell to your friends or love ones about what you have done, so they may rejoice with you and want to have that relationship with Christ in their own life. There are many occults in the world, which do not know the love of God and His great plan for those who believe in Him.

Seek the Kingdom of God
Topic: New Year

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. (Matthew 6:33-34 KJV)

 

Even though the origin of the New Year's Day arrived from the pagan religion, we need to seek God to start the Year 2017. Most preachers may tell us to sow money into their ministries, so God can bless us financially. That may be truth, but it's wrong idea for God can bless us. Jesus said that we don't need to worry about our future, because He can take care of us right now and the next day can take care by itself. We need too seek God's face rather than His hands. I don't like to watch televangelists TV-a-Thon on the first couple months of the year. They are asking for money to support their TV ministries. Even though churches need our financial support, God doesn't need our money, we need to obey His command.

 

I understand that we are in a difficult spot as President Obama recently has betrayed the people of Israel and our nation has allied with Palestinians before he would finish his presidency term. I don't know if Trump could restore from this tragedy. But there is nothing that God cannot do. He can do anything. But we need to pray to God to bring back our ally.

 

What is your agenda for 2017? The word "prosperity" means more than gaining worldly fame, wealth, and power. Jesus asked in Mark 8:36-37, "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" Even we can have anything that this world has, but without Jesus Christ in our lives, it means that we don't have one-on-one relationship with Him. Instead, we will become trash to Him and we would end in Hell. God can bring prosperity to every parts of our lives--spiritually, physically, materially, health and wellness.

 

Let 2017 would be the best year of our lives.

God's Unspeakable Gift for Us

Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift. (2 Corinthians 9:15 KJV)


In this message, I'm not going to share traditional Christmas message or speculation of behind this holiday. Some of us may know that Christian holidays arrived from the paganism through Roman Catholicism. If you like to know more in-depth to Christian holidays, you can visit my web page at www.mgjcweb.org and click Holiday link.

 

What do you thank God for? Paul began to address how God is able to make all grace abound toward each of us (2 Corinthians 9:8). As we are  celebrating this Christmas season, we need to remind ourselves the greatest gift that God gave us is His love for the world. Romans 5:8 says, "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." There are no other gods who have faced a such suffering as Jesus did. Acts 4:10-12 declares, "Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."

 

John 3:16 tells us that God so loves the world that He brought His Son to the world, so that we may believe in Him to have everlasting life. We could follow other religions, such as Roman Catholicism, Hinduism, Islam, or Jehovah Witness, but they may not satisfy us. All these religions require our works to satisfy our spiritual beings. James 2:17-18 says, "Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works." Even though Mother Teresa showed many good works before her death, did she have a strong relationship with Jesus Christ? The teaching of Catholicism is by works to get for the person to get to the kingdom of God, which it constricts with the Bible. We can't earn to enter to God's kingdom by doing good works.  Over 2000 years ago, God's Son, Jesus, came to the earth to die for our sins. Even we had so many debts in our credit cards, for example, somebody was willing to pay all of our debts without penalty.

 

Although Jesus didn't born on December 25th, God gave each of us precious gifts for us to glorify Him. It is important how we use it.

Leadership 102: Subject to the Authority
Topic: Leadership Training

Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. (Romans 13:1-2 KJV)

 

We have less than 48 hours to select our next president. It will be tough for us to elect which candidate should govern our land for next four to eight years. We have one candidate who wants to turn this nation around; and another who wants to keep going with our current president's agenda. Even though our nation has been greatest country of the world, beside Israel, it is also a divided nation of the world. Our nation has been divided that many people suffered and killed by their own people. There has been a lot of unborn children haven't seen the light of the world because of abortion that their parents have made. Nowadays, many children have confused with their identies.

 

I understand we must be followed under our government's authority. But when it constricts with God's authority, we must turn to God. He has final to say so.

 

For this week and on, we must pray and fast for our nation. Even though which candidate would sit on White House, we must ask God to lead him/her into right path for the nation. Right now, it's chaos with so many divisions within family, community, church, and government. We need to put God in our nation. It is not enough for us to elect next leader for our nation. Look changes that our current president has made. Everything his changes have made for this nation is becoming lawless or the day of Sodom and Gomorrah.

 

I don't know who do you vote for on Tuesday, but we must check with God first. He has final words to say so.

 

Are you saved? Are your love ones and friends saved in the grace of God through Jesus Christ? The purpose of this article is to help you to become closer relationship with Jesus Christ. As Jesus said, "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms, if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am." (John 14:1-3.)

Paul says, "That if you confess with your mouth, `Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believed and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved." (Romans 10:9-10.) If you have done in your private room or workplace, then you need to tell to your friends or love ones about what you have done, so they may rejoice with you and want to have that relationship with Christ in their own life.
