Complaint
Topic: Discipline
And they took their journey from Elim, and all the congregation of the children of Israel came unto the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departing out of the land of Egypt. And the whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness: And the children of Israel said unto them, Would to God we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh pots, and when we did eat bread to the full; for ye have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole assembly with hunger. (Exodus 16:1-3 KJVB)

How many time we complaint to God or another person that we can't do it? Probably hundred times or more. In Exodus 16, we read that Moses tried to lead his people to the land where God wanted them to be. Remember, after the new Pharaoh, who didn't know about Joseph, took over the land of Egypt, decided to take control over the people of Israel. He was called communist in our modern-day term. In the meantime, God was dealing with Moses to try to free His people from the communist leader. So, God brought ten plagues in Egypt to free His people out from the slavery under King Pharaoh through Moses.

After God brought His people out from the communist nation, there should be peace and celebration. Well, their celebration wasn't lasted. Instead, they began to act like cry children. They complaint to Moses and Aaron about their physical needs. They forgot what God had done for them while they were slaves to the communist leader.

Romans 3:23 says that we all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. We can ask God what we need and He would provide answers. But, oftentimes, we complaint to God with our problems. Worse, we rebuke Satan with all the messes that we created. Even God let Satan take over the earth for while, he doesn't have permission to take over our lives as we read in Job 1-2. We have to submit our mistakes and go forward. We don't need to look back and try to complaint to Satan about our messes. We are not God's little children anymore. He wants us to become into maturity and take responsible. It is sad that most today's TV preachers proclaimed that it is Satan's fault to bring us in this situation. It is his false that I got fire from the job. Reality is: It is my false that I got fire from the job. We need to take our responsibilities of our actions.

People of Israel would able to take journey to the Promise Land within three to four days, but they took long route. Why? They didn't have faith to trust Moses to lead them to the land that filled with milk and honey. Let's trust God's provision and work through our issues.

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."

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.

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.

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.

 

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.

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.)

 

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.

Leadership Skills 101: Be Strong and Good Encourager
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. (Joshua 1:5-7 KJV)

 

The Book of Joshua begins with mentioning the death of Moses and God passed his leadership role to his successor, Joshua the sun of Nun (Joshua 1:1). God still wanted to take His people to Promise Land that filled with plenty food and land. He didn't want to leave them in the wilderness, even though it took them for 40 years to the land due to their disobedience. Even though Israel failed to trust on God, He didn't leave them. Instead, God appointed Joshua to lead His people to the land that flow with honey and milk. He told Joshua, "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." (Joshua 1:6-7)

 

Even though we have embassy for each country of the world and great military leaders around the world, it doesn't means that we are free from problems. Sadly, our governmental system is continuing split up. If you have hardly agree with me, then look it up on the daily news. We are now, which I believe, number 1 to murder unborn babies through funding from Planned Parenthood. In fact, during Obama administration, we continue to see that our Christian values are becoming weaker. Instead, President Obama has kept advocating for ungodly laws, such as abortion, homosexual marriage, LGBT, transgender, and more. Our national's relationship with Israel is weaker.

 

We need to stand and fast for our homeland. As God told Joshua, we need to be strong and very courageous. The whole Book of Joshua is about Israel's conquest for their land. God gave Joshua very important instruction of how to own the land. We are in a war between good and evil until Jesus Christ would take everything over His control. In the meantime, we continue to fight the good fight of faith (I Timothy 6:12).

 

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.

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.

Seek the Lord
Topic: Relationship

Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near… (Isaiah 55:6 KJV)

 

Jesus said in Matthew 6:33, "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Let me ask you a question. When you are in a trouble situation, who do you call first? Most of us may try to solve the sticky situation on our own strength. If our ways to solve the issue are not working, we may call our people and then God. We usually call God as last source. It's sad situation, but we call for His assistance as a good luck charm.

 

Nowadays, if we'd go to Christian bookstore, we may find more book on self-help books than how we can have closer relationship with God. It's all about me, my life, and my riches of fame. We pray to God when we are in a sticky situation. It's all great, but God is not a magic genie. God is our Father, who already has adopted us into His family. Paul said in Romans 8: 15, "For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father."

 

I like to use the social media to communicate with my family and friends. But it's not enough. We need more interaction each other than just typing words on the computer screen. God created us to have relationship with Him and each other.

 

We need to seek God's face daily rather than His hands. Even though He can bless us with our material needs, He really wants to have the personal relationship with each of us.

 

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.)

And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

 

And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. (Matthew 24:1-6 KJV)

 

As there are many trategies happening in the world today, we see that Jesus Christ is coming to the earth soon to settle His government. There will be a sound of trumpet from heaven prior to the return of Jesus Christ. As we just read in Matthew 24, there will be a great deception and a rumor of war take place. The Antichrist is not going to arise to the world until the whole world system would turn into chaos.  So that he can fix the system and form the New World Order, which President George H.W. Bush announced during his term in the office. The Bible also said that the Antichrist will make a seven years of Peace Treaty with Israel, but he will break in the middle of it.

 

I believe that we could be last generation to see the fulfillment of the Book of Revelation. Here are some of the reasons that we are the last generation.

 

  1. Advanced technology: Now we have a microchip to go into the animal skins. Pretty soon, it will be available for our skin. The microchip contains the personal data information, such as banking account, your health information, and your personal profile. If you read The Left Behind series, Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins provided a false information about the Mark of Beast. They said that if Christians receive the mark, they can reverse it. However, our Bible said that it is an eternal mark to separate ourselves from God. Read Revelation 13 and see how we close to see the event.
     
  2. We see that some people fall into a great deception. Paul said in II Thessalonians 2: 11, "And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie…" We see on our televisions. Many people believe into the televangelists that if they'd give $1000 to their ministries, God will give them double portion of your money. This is why I don't like any outreach ministry-a-thon on Christian channels. We read about how Jesus was upsetting when the Temple turned into merchandise stores. Even today, we see same situation. First twenty minutes of the program is on teaching and the remainder of the program is commercials.
     
  3. Our Bible has been attacked over the years. Have you noticed that we have hundreds versions of the Bible while other religions have one? Why is that? Think moment. Jesus warned us that there will be prince of this world is about to come, who has nothing to do with Him (John 14:30). Just as what he did to Adam and Eve, he will do everything in his power to try to push us away from God. One of his methods is trying to make us confuse with God's Words. Many today' Bible versions have omitted original Greek and Hebrew manuscript of the text. This is why there is no conviction of our spirits when we read the Bible. We need to read and meditate on God's Words everyday to sharp our spirits. The King James Version of the Bible arrived from the original manuscript.

 

Are you saved? Are your love ones and friends saved in the grace of God through Jesus Christ? The purpose of this study 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."

Free Again
Topic: Nation

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. (Romans 8:1-2 KJV)

 

Tomorrow is our nation's Independent Day. As we celebrate the birth of our nation, we need to remind ourselves what made this nation to have such freedom. Were our founding fathers, who believed in God and built this nation under One God? Right now, this nation is under attacked, not by natural force, but spiritual. It is sad for us to see our nation has been turned away from our Heavenly Father and walked into sins.

 

I want to stress this further. Our nation has not been liked what she was in 90s, 80s, or further. Before I arrived to America in 1990, I went to school where I received spiritual food before taking a class. I don't know if they still practice or not. But our nation needs to go back to the basic of this nation was founded on. It is sad for us to see that many churches have been walked away from God and leading us to secular worldly gospel. When I turn some Christian channels, such as TBN and Daystar Network, most today's teachings are on Christian living and how we can get blessing from God. Paul said that some people have itching ears (2 Timothy 4:3). Do you know why Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas has the multimillion people each week? They want to hear what they want to hear from Joel Osteen instead from God through this preacher.

 

There is a different between a man of God who speaks from his own interpretation of the Bible or through the Holy Spirit. The preacher who speaks from his own interpretation of the Scripture does not convict our sins. John 14:26 gave us the duty of the Holy Spirit: "But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you." We need the Holy Spirit to lead us the way. He is also a bridge gap between us and God. Paul said in Romans 8:26-27, "Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God."

 

It has been too long for us to see that America had been #1 of the world, beside Israelite nation. If Hillary Clinton would decide to cut off our relationship with  Israel when she'd become a president, our nation may need to face some consequences. This is not just her presidential talk. This nation has been blessed by God because we have relationship with Israel. God is holding back His wrath against this nation because our faithfulness to Israel and His Church.

 

We don't like to taste God's wrath upon our nation. It is sad to see that people face tragedies in vary places. Since I have been here in America, I see and hear many tragedies all over the world. Now, we have to protect ourselves from ISIS. Time is ticking. When we would hear the trumpet sound from above, we know that God is near to come to settle His government on Earth.

 

Are you saved? Are your love ones and friends saved in the grace of God through Jesus Christ? The purpose of this study 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."

Wake Up Call
Topic: Nation

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. (Ephesians 6:12 KJV)

 

In a few more months, it will be my 26 years of my life journey in America. I believed that our nation had been the greatest country of the world. It still is. God has not wiped America out yet. He is patiently waiting for us to surrender our lives to Him. Unfortunately, there has been a major shift changed over the years. Students cannot express their faiths n Jesus Christ at their schools anymore. Christian curriculum activities are opt out from the schools and have been replaced with occult and other religion activities, such as Henry Potter book series and yoga exercise.

 

I recently watched a CBN News video clip on "Former Radical Muslim ISIK ABLA WARNS America about the true face of Islam in response to the Orlando shooting" and some comments. It tore this person's heart to see what her former religion is doing in our nation. You can find this video clip at MGJC Web page at www.mgjcweb.org. Yet, our national leaders have refused the words "radical Islamic terrorists" to scare the group away. Instead, they embraced them to live in this country. We have now a recent new religion, which is called Chrislam. Chrislam is a mixture of two religions blend together between Christianity and Islam. If you want to have more information on Chrislam, visit MGJC Web Ministry's E-Library at www.mgjcweb.org.

 

There is a reason of why we see trategies in the world, especially Israel and United States. These two nations are devil's bull eye. Since God promised Abraham to be a father of many nations (Genesis 12:1-3; 17:1-8), our nation has the part of His plan. Some bible scholars believe that America is the mystery Babylon that the Book of Revelation addresses. We have been opened the door to Roman Catholicism, Islam, Hindu, Jehovah Witness, and other religions to settle in this nation. Instead of being witnesses to them the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we embraced to their religions. Currently, many churches are weaker on the teaching of very foundation of our faith. We have forgotten the basic lesson of the gospel, because we hear more teachings on living a Christian life rather than how we need to live for God.

 

Folks, we need to wake our spiritual eyes and cry out for God to take over this nation. Currently, our nation has been formed one of ten super nations, which Prophet Daniel predicted. If this is true, the Antichrist is preparing himself to appear to the world and settle his world system (New World Order) at any moment. The NWO cannot be formed until every world system is falling apart, such as Oklahoma Bombing of 1995, 9/11/2001 Tragedy, LGBT Pride, interfaith movement, abortion, and gender identity issues among the children.

 

Are you saved? Are your love ones and friends saved in the grace of God through Jesus Christ? The purpose of this study 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."

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. If you’d need further assistance, you can email me at mgjcministries@mgjcweb.org or visit my ministries website at www.mgjcweb.org for further resources.

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. 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 1:9-12): 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.

The Early Church Eras (Acts 1:8): To be Evangelism
Topic: Act of Apostles

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. (Acts 1:8 KJV)

Now, we have arrived to the main theme or thesis verse of the Book of Acts, which it is evangelism or spreading of Christianity. Before He left His disciples, Jesus commanded them to go out to the world to teach others what He taught them to do. Throughout the books of Gospel, He showed them what their faiths can do if they'd believe in Him. Jesus also demonstrated them how to develop with God and people. Jesus said in Matthew 22:37-39, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself."

The words Christian appears twice (Acts 26:28 and I Peter 4:16) and Christians appear only once (Acts 11:26) in the King James Version. The other modern translations of the Bible may have more verses, which they constrict from the original translation of the Bible, KJV. As we see, God is careless about which religious group we belong to. It's about our relationship with God and people. By the way, there is no single verse that contains with the word Christianity

Why Jesus commanded His disciples to be worldwide evangelists to the world, starting in Jerusalem? Unlike today, they walked hundred miles or more to share the Gospel of Jesus to several villages. While they proclaimed the Words of God, these disciples faced many hardships from unbelievers, as we read throughout the Book of Acts. They faced many persecutions from other religious leaders and groups. Did persecution stop? No! We still hear that many today's pastors faced persecutions because of their faiths in Jesus Christ. We want to thank God that we have American Center for Law and Justice to assist them to protect their Christian faiths. But ACLJ has limited resources for you to be a witness for Jesus Christ. Even though we believe that our nation was built by the biblical principles, it doesn't guarantee that we wouldn't face tribulations in our lives.

Look America today. This nation has turned against God more aggressively every day. Our primetime TV programs have filled with violence, sex, and foul languages rather than they are for family and children. Today's education system is filled with other religious and moral values than Christian and family values. If the child would draw a picture of Christian symbol, then the child would get trouble by her/his teacher. However, when the child would draw her Islamic or other religious symbols, then it doesn't matter as long as it's not related to Christianity. Churches have compromised with the world; we may don't realize what the truth is.

We have lost to reach other parts of the world to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Nowadays, many preachers use satellite to reach other locations to preach the Gospel. Some American preachers, such as Bishop TD Jake, have three or four churches that use the satellite for him to do church services from his main location. We have to be like disciples, who travelled hundred or more miles with their feet, to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Thank God that we have airplane to travel to the next

destination, but we need to get dirty to do the Great Commission (Mathew 28:18-20). We need to make our standards higher. God doesn't want us to be lazy on the Lazy Boy furniture. We are His voice to share the messages on the grace of God through Jesus Christ. When we accept Jesus as our personal Savior, we become priests to represent 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. 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 1:6-7): Time is Ticking
Topic: Act of Apostles
When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. (Acts 1:6-7 KJV)

 

In this passage, we see that the disciples asked a question concerning the nearness of Christ’s literal kingdom, which it is not incongruous with Old Testament promises (Is. 9:6, 7; Dan. 2:44, 45), nor with the gospel teachings (Luke 19:11; 21:31; 22:18). In Matthew 24, Jesus gave them a long sermon about His second coming. Again, as we see, these disciples were concerning about the timing of the event.

 

I believe that Jesus didn’t give us time of His returning for following reasons:

 

1)     God called us to spread the Gospel to whole nations without for us to worry about timing.

2)     If God would announce His date of returning, Satan would be ready to fight against Him.

 

However, Jesus left us some signs before His returning. First, He left us the sign of Israel. Since the people of Israel reestablished their land as nation in 1948, they are still dealing with issues from other nation. Ezekiel 38-39 predicts that the nations from north would plan to attack Israel and start Battle of Armageddon.

 

Why the whole world would attack Israel? First, it’s a battle between God against Satan. Second, there was a history of family rivalry since the lives of Abraham and Sarah. Even though God had a plan for their lives, Abraham and Sarah decided to have a child through their Egyptian servant, Hagar (Hebrew word for wandering). Hagar became a mother of Ishmael by Abraham, which represents the world. Due to their disobedience, their two children, Ishmael and Isaac, split into two separate families, which resulted in the birth of two nations—Israel and Arab nations. Even today, we continue to see that the Arabs and Israelite nations continue to fight against each other. This is why the two nations continue to feud in Israel. As Apostle Paul declares in Galatians 4:22, “…that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.” He was referring to Hagar (mother of Ishmael), who represented the bondmaid and Sarah (mother of Isaac) as the freewoman.

 

We currently see that our relationship with the Israelite nation is not doing well. President Obama currently pushes Israel to give up their land to Palestine. When the Israelite Prime Minister visit and spoke to US Congress, President Obama was absent from his presence; then, he did not follow through with the Prime Minister. What’s wrong with this picture?

 

We need to reestablish our relationship with the people of Israel. As we see from this past Friday, we let our Supreme Court ruled over homosexual agenda. Now, people can have marriage with same sex, children, or animal. If you read the fine print of this law, it’s more than gay marriage. We let the sin take over this godly nation.

 

Now, we, as body of Christ, need to wake ourselves up and spread the Good News of Jesus Christ throughout the land. It’s ashamed for us to see that other nations come to do evangelization, even though we have churches in every corner throughout all 50 states.

 

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 1:4-5): Promise of the Holy Spirit

And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence. (Acts 1:4-5 KJV)

 

The first two previous messages were the brief introduction of the Book of Acts. Again, the original title of this book had been Acts of the Apostles. In the sequel to his first book, Luke wrote about how the Christianity had been populated throughout the world, began in Jerusalem. The word church is not about the building, as we see in verse 4, but have assembly with other people together to encourage and have fellowship each other. As I said in the previous message, Jesus began the church movement and not Peter.

 

After Jesus ascent to Heaven, the eleven disciples stayed at Jerusalem band wait for the Holy Spirit to come to them. Wait a minute. Have we forgotten one person here? There were eleven disciples, because Judas Iscariot decided to suicide himself after he arrested Jesus to Pharisees. Even though he made a bad decision, we want to give him a credit. If Jesus didn’t die on the cross, the first messianic prophecy (Genesis 3:15) wouldn’t come true. But, mostly, our faiths in Christ would become useless.

 

Why Jesus told them to wait in Jerusalem for the Holy Spirit? In John 14:26 says, “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” The word for Comforter, it means one’s aid; one who pleads another’s cause before a judge, a pleader, counsel for defense, legal assistant, an advocate (Enhanced Strong’s Lexicon). The disciples cannot be witnesses to the world without further assistance. So, Jesus promised to send Helper for their advanced training. So that they can witness to the world about Jesus the Messiah. Luke 24:46-49 says, ”And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of these things. And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.” Also, Matthew 28:18-20 says, “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.”

 

The Great Commission, Jesus left, didn’t end at Acts 28. It still goes on until Jesus would return to the world. In the meantime, we need to be in workforce by building godly relationship each other on a regular basis. We are called to be children of God and He is our Father, who created us. We need to be connected with God and other people. We can’t do that until our willingness is involved. We need to encourage and assist each other; let the Holy Spirit assists us; and let God works in us.

 

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 1:1-4): Background of the Book of Acts II
Topic: Act of Apostles

The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen: To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God: And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. (Acts 1:1-4 KJV)

 

The church didn’t begin in the Book of Acts. It began with Jesus’ announcement about building a church in Matthew 16:18. Matthew 16:18 is the misinterpret about the establishment of the church. If you’d ask Roman Catholic Church who built a church, they will say Apostle Peter, because Jesus gave him the keys of the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 16:19). However, Jesus didn’t ask Peter to become a pope of the church. If we look up the word church in Greek, it means “a gathering of citizens called out from their homes into some public place.” This is why Luke said in Acts 1:4, “And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem.”

 

The biblical scholar believed that Luke wrote his second book, The Acts of the Apostles, from 62 AD to the middle of the second century. Bruce Wilkinson and Kenneth Boa explained, “Twentieth-century archaeological discoveries have strikingly confirmed the trustworthiness and precision of Luke as a historian and show that his work should be dated in the first century. Luke’s perplexingly abrupt ending with Paul awaiting trial in Rome has led many to believe that Acts was completed prior to Paul’s trial (a.d. 62). If it was written after this crucial event, why didn’t Luke mention the outcome? Luke may have had a reason, but the simplest explanation of his silence is that Paul had not yet stood before Caesar. Acts gives no hint of the persecution under Nero (a.d. 64), Paul’s death (a.d. 68), or the destruction of Jerusalem (a.d. 70).” (Talk thru the Bible.)

 

The Acts is the historical link between the Gospels and the Epistles. Throughout this book, we shall see many works of the Holy Spirit who work through the apostles. Jesus promised in John 14:26, “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” Again in Mark 16:15-18, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” The Book of Acts is still unfold church history book until God would close the book.

 

There is one survey that indicates American churches are going more into secular. Prophecy News Watch wrote, “Pew conducted two surveys between 2007 and 2014 on religion in America and discovered the number of Americans who claim atheism, agnosticism, or no particular faith grew from 16 percent to 23 percent. During that time frame, the number of Americans laying claim to Christianity fell from 78 percent to 71 percent.” As we see in today’s society, we usually don’t hear enough about people are getting saved and heal the sick than in the previous generations. If we’d look up the history during 1800s or earlier, we noticed that many people received the gift of salvation and healing. They heard more uncompromising messages from the pulpit than in this generation. Nowadays, most preachers may don’t preach about sin, hell, repentance, and God’s wrath anymore. American government slowly begins to prejudice against Christians if we’d preach against the homosexual marriage and LGBT activists’ agendas.

 

We need to stand firm more than ever. Within twenty or fifty years from now, our Christian freedom would become useless in this country. The government may give us to accept the faith in Antichrist or face the death penalty because of our faiths in Jesus Christ.

 

Where are you? I’m not just writing this blog to help you to understand the history of Christianity. We need to prepare whatever problem this world would give us. We are living in a sinful world until God would refurnish this world and make it as Garden of Eden again.

 

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.
