Battle against the Enemy: Understanding Satan's Strategy (Part IV)
Topic: Spiritual War

There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil. And there were born unto him seven sons and three daughters. His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a very great household; so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the east. And his sons went and feasted in their houses, every one his day; and sent and called for their three sisters to eat and to drink with them. And it was so, when the days of their feasting were gone about, that Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all: for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually. (Job 1:1-5 KJV)

 

Beside Enoch (Genesis 3:21-24) and Noah (Genesis 6-10), we also need to look at the life of Job, who was also a righteous man of God. Throughout his book, Job suffered from so many tragedies in his life; yet, he didn't let his wife and friends pull him down that could separate his relationship with God. Even though he did not have a clue what caused all the bad things happened to him, he did not give up to put his faith in God. We must follow what Job did to solve the problem.

 

Before we'd dig into more of Job's life, we must understand his background. There is not much detail of his early life, but Job was the third son of Issachar (Genesis 46:13).  He was recognized as Jeshub (Num 26:24; 1 Chr 7:1). Apart from his book he can be found in Ezekiel 14:14 and James 5:11.

 

As the verse 1 stated, Job was a perfect and upright man, who feared God. This doesn't mean he didn't have any sin against God. Paul said in Roman 3:23 that we "all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God…" Again in Roman 3:10-11, "There is none righteous… there is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God." Have you ever lied? Have you ever hurt someone’s feelings by your words or tone of voice? Are you bitter toward anyone? Do you become angry with those who strongly disagree with you? In thought, word, and deed, you, like everyone else in the world, stand guilty before God. Again in verse 1, Job tried to stay away from evil.

 

Beginning verse 2 to 3, Job lived in a wealthy family and had lots of possessions. But that doesn't mean his children were well behaved. Even though his children did not show any respect for God, Job prayed and fasted for them. He hoped that his children would come to gain their relationship with God.

 

Are you worrying about your children? Parents can show their concern for them. We need to keep lead them as God led us. We need to "bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4)."

Battle against the Enemy: Understanding Satan's Strategy (Part III)
Topic: Spiritual War

And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.  And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. (Genesis 3:10-13 KJV)

 

I want us to focus on the result of Adam and Eve's lives after they deceived by the serpent (Genesis 3:10-19). This changed God's plan for the humanity. God intended people to live on the earth forever, but He had to change His plan since the sin entered the world. Adam and Eve could give Him the straight answer and God could continue to work on His plan for the humanity. Because of their disobedience, they faced consequences, which effect to us today.

 

First, we cannot hide ourselves from God (Genesis 3:10-13). Even though God knows what we're doing in our own private space, we cannot really hide ourselves from God. Daniel 2:28 says, "…but there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets…" When we hide something from God, He will examine our hearts. When you did something wrong, did your parents give you a chance to repent? Even though God gave Adam and Eve a chance to repent, they pointed their fingers against each other. They were like little children to blame each other out. Serpent probably had a good time on this. Not too fast, serpent.

 

Beginning verse 14, God gave all three some punishments. For serpent (vv. 14-15), he will be snake forever that eats from ground. Then in v. 15 says, "and I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel." This first prophecy has twofold. In KJV Life Application Study Bible says, "The phrase 'thou shalt bruise his heel' refers to Satan’s repeated attempts to defeat Christ during his life on earth. 'It shall bruise thy head' foreshadows Satan’s defeat when Christ rose from the dead. A bruise on the heel is not deadly, but a blow to the head is. Already God was revealing his plan to defeat Satan and offer salvation to the world through his Son, Jesus Christ." He will be defeated at the end. Even though God created the world, He gave Satan a permission to rule over it for while.

 

For Eve (v. 16), she will have hard labor and have desired to be with Adam, and he will rule over her. God intended for women to give a birth to child not harmful way. Because of sins, she and women after her will have a hard labors and let their husbands rule over them.

 

But look at verses 17, 18, and 19. Adam's punishment contains more severe than Eve, because he was the firstborn of the humanity. God first call him to govern the garden before Eve was with him. Because of disobedience, the ground shall be cursed that they will work harder. When they'd die in their old ages, their bodies will return to dust. Only spirits will go either to God or burning in Hell forever. I know you might not like the word Hell, but God would like to have them warning.

 

Are you losing your battle? Do you feel like if God would close His ears when you cried out to Him? Even though our Adam and Eve failed to obey God, He didn't abandon them. Instead, God clothed them before they lost the privilege to live in the Garden of Eden.

 

Do you have your personal relationship with His Son, Jesus? God didn't bring His Son to the earth, so that he can clean our sins off. No, no. Jesus did on the calvary, so that He can have relationships with us. He did not deserve to die for our sins, but He did. Now, it is up to us to respond to Him. I'm not going to spell out the sinner prayer, because it is not sincere prayer to Him. We must spend our time with Him on a daily basis. Don't just watch or listen to preachers on the TV/radio, but spend our own time to have a quality time with God through reading His words and prayer. If you'd want extra affect, put the worship music on. Whatever you do, do it for God. Your quality time with God also can make shield, so that Satan and all the negative things cannot enter to your mind.

Battle against the Enemy: Understanding Satan's Strategy (Part II)
Topic: Spiritual War

And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? (Genesis 3:6-9 KJV)

 

Have you noticed that the serpent attacked Eve first? Not Adam, but Eve. The serpent knew that Adam was created by God, who learned everything by Him first before He created Eve. So, Satan went after Eve, because he knew that she wasn't strong enough to overcome the temptation by him. Eve was weaker than Adam (Genesis 3:6). She was easily deceived by the serpent. Paul said in I Timothy 2:14, "And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression." (1 Timothy 2:14). Some churches may think that women cannot speak a word at the church pulpit. God can use women to lead the people as Miriam and Deborah in the Old Testament. But they cannot put authority over men.

 

Because of their disobedience, Adam, Eve, and the serpent will suffer that would effect to whole world history. Our jobs would be much easier if the event of Genesis 3 hadn’t occurred. Don't misunderstand that there wouldn't be jobs for us to do when we'd enter heaven. But we will be enjoying our work there as Adam and Eve did before the fall (Genesis 3). When Eve saw that curse tree deeply, as the serpent tempted her, the tree became an idol to her. We don't know what fruit she ate, but she liked it and shared it with her husband. As they ate the fruit, they realized what it happened and felt like they were naked (3:7). How would you feel if this was you? Would you run away from God, your parents, or boss if you made boo, boo?

 

As we read in Genesis 3:8, Adam and Eve tried to hide from God. God said in Jeremiah 23:24, "Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth?" We cannot hide ourselves from God. He knows everything that He created. But, even though He knew where Adam and Eve were, He wanted to let them repent what they did. Even though God can make them as robots, He wanted to have a relationship with them. Let's stop in Genesis 3:9 and let's reflect on today's passage.

 

How would you answer God in Genesis 3:9? Do you have your personal relationship with His Son, Jesus? God didn't bring His Son to the earth, so that he can clean our sins off. No, no. Jesus did on the calvary, so that He can have relationships with us. He did not deserve to die for our sins, but He did. Now, it is up to us to respond to Him. I'm not going to spell out the sinner prayer, because it is not sincere prayer to Him. We must spend our time with Him on a daily basis. Don't just watch or listen to preachers on the TV/radio, but spend our own time to have a quality time with God through reading His words and prayer. If you'd want extra affect, put the worship music on. Whatever you do, do it for God. Your quality time with God also can make shield, so that Satan and all the negative things cannot enter to your mind.

Battle against the Enemy: Understanding Satan's Strategy (Part 1)
Topic: Spiritual War

Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: for God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. (Genesis 3:1-5 KJV)

 

Before Lucifer became an enemy, he was one of God's angels (or messengers). Because of his pride, he was separated from God. Isaiah 14:12-14 tells us that how he wanted to become higher as God. As we read Genesis 3:1, he was smarter than any other animals that God created. However, due to his pride, God took him away from His palace forever. Even though God gives us to chance to repent our sins, angels don't have chance to be right with God. Either they follow God or their ways. Lucifer decided to go his way. That was ugly turned for Lucifer. He took about 1/3 of God's angels with him.

 

Before continuing with the spiritual battle training, we need to look at the four battle events against Satan. We will look our first earthly parents, Adam and Eve; Job's struggles; David and Bathsheba; and the temptation of Jesus. We need to understand his strategies to overcome any temptation that he would make us to do. His main goal is to destroy our relationship with the Almighty God.

 

As we see in Genesis 3, there was a serpent in the Garden of Eden. He was smarter than any other creatures that God created. I want to question this: Why this serpent was in the Garden of Eden? I don't believe that God put him with Eve there alone. God created Eve to be companion with Adam, not serpent. God gave them to allow eat anything in the garden, except the tree with knowledge of good and evil. I do believe that he came to the garden by himself as a serpent as he crushed into God and His angels (Job 1:6). His main goal is to destroy our relationship with God. Jesus said in John 10:10, "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy…" Satan is the thief to destroy our relationship with God, so we cannot have joyful lives on earth, which God created for us.

 

As we see the world is in crisis, especially in our homeland. We cannot receive the right information from the news media and government because they conflict each other. Satan is having a blast. He loves to make people confuse and lose faith in God.  Jesus described him as a liar. In John 8:44 says, "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."

 

Lucifer knew what God said Adam and Eve, but he decided to challenge God's command to Eve, after Adam left her alone for while. The question is not about why Adam left Eve in the garden, but why the serpent was with Eve there. We all need to have space of our own for while, so that we can't drag our minds crazy to each other. Eve fought back against the serpent with what God said for the first around. But she failed by the serpent's doubt statement by the serpent (Genesis 3:4-5). He answered partially but not truthfully. The tree was forbidden. God didn't want them to become like Lucifer, knowing good and evil. Instead, He wanted to have a relationship with them. As we see in the next segment, there are some consequences for Adam, Eve, and the serpent.

 

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

Battle Against the Enemy: Prep
Topic: Spiritual War

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 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 6:10-12 KJV)

 

I recently read that the federal government is planning to make us all Vegetarianism. Quoting from "Theyre coming for your food: Expert warns the fix is in and restrictions will be next," Business Review, April 25, 2023:

 

"Globalist social engineering took another step forward in New York City as Mayor Eric Adams (D) rolled out his new emissions goal that led one expert to conclude, “They’re coming for your food.”

 

It's good thing this NY mayor is looking after our health, but we need to have meat in our body system to stay strong. It wouldn't be enough for us only to eat vegetables. Even though we are not going to discuss this with End Time, it is also related to the New Age Movement. Satan loves to control our minds to pull us away from God, especially our children. As we see, the school system is completely going opposite direction. Now, they are learning about LGBTQ history (which it is fake), joining Pride Awareness, and becoming drag queen/king. It is just not enough for them to learn witchcraft through Harry Potter book series. Satan is attacking minds of children, because he knows that they are God's and He will use them to lead the world in the next generation.

 

Right now, our nation has become as a socialism country as Communist China. Some people may think this is good, but, reality, it is not. History tells us that Democrats started to adopt this kind of leadership. Before Donald Trump entered the presidential race, we hardly see this kind of political movement. Of course, we saw that our God's name had been taken away from Pledge Allegiance and other Christian activities in public services and places during the Obama administration.

 

Now, we see clearly see that this spiritual war is very active, especially in our homeland. Ephesians 6:12 tells us that we are not in battle physically, "but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." We are wrestle against the enemy that we cannot see with our physical eyes. We need to have our battle plan. Even though Ephesians 6:10-20 list of battle plan, we cannot win until we have our relationship with Jesus Christ.

 

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

Good vs. Bad
Topic: Spiritual War

In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes. (Judges 21:25 KJV)

 

The KJV Life Application Study Bible says, "During the time of the judges, the people of Israel experienced trouble because everyone became his own authority and acted on his own opinions of right and wrong. This produced horrendous results. Our world is similar. Individuals, groups, and societies have made themselves the final authorities without reference to God. When people selfishly satisfy their personal desires at all costs, everyone pays the price."

 

What we are seeing the world today, especially in United States, is like the time of the Israelites were doing their own things without God. We are currently seeing that our government system is so corrupted that it is no longer stand by and for the people. We have become so selfish that we put God away from the school system. Nowadays, schools are teaching on critical race theory or CRT, which it came from the devil. Young children are learning about how they can become drag kings or drag queens for themselves; or they lost their true identities. Apostle Paul warned us in I Timothy 4:1-3, "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth."

 

We clearly see that people are praising for bad things rather than goods. Since U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, many leftists are so upset that women don't have freedom anymore and put their health in risk situation. First, the abortion is not about women's health. It's committing a crime to kill unborn babies. Do you really think killing a baby to make woman healthy again? No! The fake news media outlets (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, CNN, and MSNBC) use this to help leftists to empower the governmental system. Antichrist cannot come to the world scene until the world is under the governmental system, which we see these things in our very own naked eyes today. The Bible said that the antichrist (global dictatorship) cannot control all of people in the world. Everything that is right is considered as wrong and wrong is considered as right. This is why Satan is pushing the government hard into minds of people.

 

Jesus warned us in Matthew 24:24, "For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." Even though this verse is referring to the church leaders, who teach indoctrination of the Bible, our political leaders can deceive us, too. We often hear about their faith in God, but, yet, they do the opposite when they get into the office. Even though President Trump had some falls in the past and while he was in White House, he tried to make right decisions for the nation. We didn't hear on his good deeds enough from the media because of their fake reports. If you would like to know more what's going on the media outlets and political arena, I recommend you to read True Story of Fake News by Mark Dice. Easy to read and he gave some in depths of what is going on with today's general news medias, such as ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, and big tech (Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube).

 

Which side are you currently on? We only have two choices--God or Satan. If you want to do your ways, that's the advice from Satan. He deceived Eve when she was alone in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3); and Adam felt into the devil trap when Eve shared the fruit with him. Or you could walk side along with God and He can show you the way. Proverbs 3:5-6 said, "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." Even though we are in chaotic situation right now, God will show you the way if you'd let Him.

Freedom vs. Slavery
Topic: Deception

Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law? For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. (Galatians 4:21-23 KJV)
 

Remember the story of the later life of Abraham. Even though God promised him to give him descendants, he and his wife decided to help God to make their wishes become true. Sarah told Abraham to hook up with her servant woman, Hagar, to come up with child. God doesn't need our help to make His promise into reality faster. Hagar came from Egypt while Abraham and Sarah were there. I believe that Sarah needed some assistances and Hagar was available. When it was a time for them to leave Egypt, Hagar decided to follow them.

 

In Galatians 4:21-27, Hagar represents as a bondwoman and Sarah is a freewoman. The Greek word for bondwoman or a young female slave is paidiske. Also, Hagar represents as a slave to the world system. While she lived under the Egyptian authority, she had no choice but to follow the way of government. I don't know about you, but I'd be tired to be in bondage under the governmental authority, which we know today as communism, liberalism or socialism.

 

Even though we need to respect and obey our governmental authority, their orders must come from God (Romans 13:1), not from their own ideas. When our leaders decided shutdown businesses and services due to global pandemic, it was unnecessary for them to do so, especially churches. Not only people lost their income, they also lost their joy to go out to interact with other people on a daily basis. But when the government decided to shutdown churches, they overreached their limits. Churches are governed by God, not our government. Churches are essential for people to search for hope when they are in crises. I know that many churches decided to fight against the governmental authority in 2020. Nowadays, we see that many parents are fighting for unmasking their children in schools. Even though the government seems to be concerned for children during the global crises, children need to have proper air. If they mask their mouths and noses on for seven to eight hours a day for five days a week, they would be sick or die because they don't get air properly during school hours. But the government and news medias are kept pushing for mask mandate. Why?

 

America lost God. Since one person said against to have prayer in schools, God walked away from the education system and let Satan took over. Once we pushed God away, then other gods come to us, which is Satan. We cannot live without somebody in us. Atheist doesn't believe the existence of God or gods, but who they listen to? Satan. John 8:44 says, "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it." When God gave Satan a permission to take over the world, he had a very limit to do with his power. One thing that he cannot do, which is controlling us. Instead, God gave us the freewill to follow Him or Satan. As we see in our nation today, we don't have freedom that we usually to have. We cannot go to work unless vaccinate it. We cannot travel until we'd show the vaccinated ID passport. Some people may think it's good idea and some do not.

 

So, where is God from all of these? We really need to wake up and look what's really happening. We can follow the way of world or God. God allows a strong delusion for us to believe a lie that comes from the pit of hell (2 Thessalonians 2:11-12). Sadly, there are some churches to follow the guideline of the governor's executive order in order to have services physically, which it is sad. Even though we all need to be cautious due to global pandemic, we really need to listen to God rather than men. He is the answer we need at this moment of the history.

 

God planned to send His Son, Jesus Christ, to us to pay our sins, so we can have free access and have personal relationship with Him. Would you like to have personal relationship with God? If you’d like to know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, I’d like to encourage you to do two simple things. 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 mgjcinfo@mgjcweb.org or visit my ministries website at www.mgjcweb.org for further resources.

Turn Away from the Truth
Topic: Deception

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. (II Timothy 4:3-4 KJV)

 

For more than ever, we need to know what's going on with today's world. Not just in the United States, but everywhere, especially in Middle East. I understand that our nation seems to be chaotic situation right now. Since the most leadership is governed by the one political system, everything is not going right for America. Even our schoolchildren are challenged by the radical educational theory on their identities, political correction, and the history of the United States, we have seen that they are confused and hurting; and their parents are fighting for them. I asked myself: Why our nation is so corrupted since the Coronavirus started throughout the world? For years, our nation had been blessed by the Almighty God. We stood up with the people of Israel when they are in crisis. Our nation was founded by the biblical principal. But now, our nation is so corrupted with all selfishness. We have been gained ourselves that we can do everything ourselves without God. We let one person stood up to pull the prayer out of schools; let the government provides funding to Planned Parenthood, so they can provide for women to kill their unwanted babies; and we let the government to direct teachers to teach children to learn about sex, gender exchange, and radical historical theory.

 

It is the time for us to wake up and stand for the justice, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. It is the time for us to turn our nation back to God. When we turn on our TV, we have hardly find entertainment for entire family to watch together, such as The Walton, Touch by an Angel, and Family Ties. Instead, we often find TV shows that are fulfilled with violence, crime, and sex; and some children shows are beginning to turn as today's prime programs, too. We cannot get family together in our dinner table because we like to do our own things, which it is called individualism. This is why the crime is so high throughout the nation. Some of them like to spend outside of their homes and follow the crowd of people. Most of parents work and come home late. We need to reconstruct our family time, so we can have no crime activities, no jail time, and be safe in our communities. Right now, our communities are war zones. Every night, ambulances, fire trucks, and police cars across our streets.

 

There are a lot of misunderstanding of what we are facing right now. Some of us might like to follow what the government, news media, and high tech said; or some try to listen to what God said and do more digging to find the truth. Right now, we cannot let the kids go to schools unless they'd vaccinate and put on their masks; and same things for adults, they cannot go to work unless they'd vaccinate or quit the jobs. It's sad that we come to this, when our politicians gave us demands due to the safety from Covid; and many businesses follow their rules and regulations without knowing what some of the risks are. For example, we are risking our kids' air when they go to schools with putting masks on for eight hours a day and five days a week. They need proper air breathing rather than following our governments' massive mask mandate. I can guarantee that there would be more hospitalizations and deaths outbreak across the countries.

 

It is very critical now to decide which we need to live. We can live by our governmental rules, but they are pushing their political agendas much further; or we can live by putting our trust in God, so that He can direct us to the path of life. It is up to us. Even though the vaccine is not the actual Mark of Beast, it could be a vehicle to that event. We don't know how long this global pandemic outbreak stay, but we can be conquerors and walk through pandemic by putting trust in God. David said in Psalms 139: 23-24, "Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting."

 

Do you have a relationship with the Creator of the universe? If not, do you like to know Him? Jesus did not just come to the earth and die for our sins, He came to have relationship with each of us. Paul said in Romans 5:8 "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." God knows we are not perfect and sinless in His eyes. But He doesn't want to give up on us and let us fall into the pit of Hell. God listens to our prayers. When God was about to kill His people, because they turned against Him, Moses begged Him to spare His people. Even He is the justice God, He listens to people and give them chance to turn their lives around.

 

God planned to send His Son, Jesus Christ, to us to pay our sins, so we can have free access to God and develop personal relationship with Him. Would you like to have personal relationship with God? If you’d like to know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, I’d like to encourage you to do two simple things. 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 mgjcwebminstries@mgjcweb.org or visit my ministries website at www.mgjcweb.org for further resources.

Two Ways of Street
Topic: Living Life

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. (Matthew 7:13-14 KJV)

 

Even though this passage of Scripture is related to Heaven and Hell, I want to talk about there are only two ways to live a life before entering to eternality. One way leads to God and another way leads to the lake of fire. Former President Barak Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and Joel Osteen believe that there are many ways to Heaven. However, according to the Bible, there is only one way to Heaven. Jesus said in John 14:6, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." Hebrews 1:1-2, "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds…"

 

Why does the road to Heaven is so narrow? Does God want everybody to go to His place? Even though God wants everybody enter to His place, He wants us to make decision which way we should live for. Broad way, there are lots of way to live for. But sometimes, it's confusing, because there is no focal point. God wants us to have freedom to live in this planet Earth, but He wants us to focus on our destination.

 

Psalms 1 addresses that there are only two ways to live in this Earth. Even the world have many religions, there are only two ways for us to live a life. We can live godly or ungodly way and there is no third choice. In the beginning, there was not any type of religion until Satan entered into Garden of Eden to trick the first woman of all creatures, which God had ever made (Genesis 3). Throughout the generations, we see that God's people worshipped pagan gods. Even today, we have many world religions as well as Christian denominations. It is sad that our Christian root has divided into many belief systems. This is why we have many Bible versions. We cannot agree to each other on what God's words said in the Holy Bible. We let Catholic pope dominated the belief system with the Words of God. As a result, some beliefs contains with mixture of paganism in Christian churches, such as Christian holidays (Easter, Halloween, and Christmas). If you'd like to find more information on holidays, you can go to MGJC Web Ministry (www.mgjcweb.org) for more details.

 

So why does lovely God want us to walk through narrow road to reach the prize?

 

  • We can focus only one goal at a time. If we'd do too much, we'd be miserable because the lack of organization .
  • Broad road leads to confusion and dissatisfaction of our lives.
  • God wants us to focus in Him, so He can walk with us through difficulties.

 

Many of you have faced difficulties since the pandemic hits throughout the world. Many of you are stuck in home because of Covid. I know you are tired of  being stuck in home, got lay-off from your job, or working your job at home. I know I am. But we must not give our hope down and let the devil beats us up. Instead, it is the time for us to turn our focal point to Jesus.

 

God planned to send His Son, Jesus Christ, to us to pay our sins, so we can have free access and have personal relationship with Him. Would you like to have personal relationship with God? If you’d like to know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, I’d like to encourage you to do two simple things. 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.

Press Toward to the Year 2021
Topic: New Year

Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:13-14 KJV)

 

2020 has been challenged for all of us throughout the world. We would not guarantee what the year 2021 would bring, but we know who controls our future. Currently, it seems that the world is in choatic situation. We see that our government is fighting each other's throats. The media outlets don't tell the whole truth of current situations. Many riot groups are raging against the governments and trying to make change from original historical facts. And so on.

 

Even though we are in difficult situation, we must not give our faiths up. I understand that our state governors are doing no good by shutting businesses and services down due to Covid-19 (government made virus), but we must not give hope up. We know who hold our future. We know who will expose these global activities to the rest of world. We know that Satan has very limited time to make this world mess before Jesus will return to settle His government with us.

 

But in the meantime, we must stand and fight for the freedom that God gave all of us. Paul said in II Timothy 1:7, "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." The question is: Are we going to fight continuously for our freedom or just let the government take over us?

 

I don't about you. I'm tired to stay at home for the most of time due to Covid. But I'm a fighter for the truth. Satan cannot let me down through news media outlets or lock me down into apartment. Most today's news reports are negative and basis on liberal-socialism agendas. We must heed what God says to us. We must act rather than just being stuck in your safe environment. We must read God's report rather than reading our newspaper. 2021 would be hard year, but the question is: Are you going to give up?

Current Law & Order Conflict
Topic: Nation

And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them. (Exodus 24:12 KJV)

 

During the forty days of fasting, Moses spent his time with God to learn the ways of God for His people. Of course, God gave him the Ten Commandments that address two types of relationship. The first four commandments address our relationship with God (Exodus 20:2-11). It is important for us to have relationship with God, because He created the universe and us. God wants to have personal relationship with each of us. He created the world for us to enjoy the life that He gave us.

Last six commandments are related to our relationships with each others. Remember when God created Adam and gave him all the responsibilities to take care His creation, God felt sorry for the man to be lonely. Genesis 2:18 said, "It is not good that the man should be alone…" Why? It is easily for us to be in depression stage when there would be no one else to talk with or work with. As we see in this verse, God gave Adam a woman, from his rib, to assist him to take care His creation. Before the fall of man in Genesis 3, their jobs were lighted and enjoyed doing jobs. There is so much to say about the first couple chapters in the Book of Genesis, but let's return to the last six of the Ten Commandments, which is concerned with the relationship with one another.

Before the fall of man, God intended for us to have eternal human life. However, the sins entered to the world, God shrunk the human lifespan down into 120 years (Genesis 6:3). For us to have a long life, we have to honor our parents; shall not commit murder, steal, commit adultery, steal, bear false witness, and covet another people's property. Even though God knows that we may not be kept the first ten laws perfectly, He gave us the two laws that summarized all the laws in the Bible--love God and love our people. Love is the powerful for us to have. God knows that we would have difficulty to follow the Ten Comments on a daily basis because the sins issue. Paul said in Romans 3:10-11, "There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God." If you'd say that you obey God 100%, you'd become a liar and God is not with you. There is only one Person, who has kept God's laws perfectly, which is Jesus Christ. That is why Paul said in Philippians 2:5-11, "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."

Let's forward to what's going on the world today, especially United States of America. I believe the way that U.S. moves would effect the rest of the world. Most of countries are looking to us as role model. We have relationship with Israel to be blessed by God as we continually stay as strong and wealthy nation of the world. Our nation has made much progress to establish relationship with other countries to share common ideas to make better places for people in the world.

Unfortunately, we still struggle with dealing certain issues in our lives. I want to tell you that our country has so many groups that segregates from with the rest of world. That's good! But, on the other hand, it's bad. Even though our country has many diversities of groups, we also try to make competition from others. Right now, many people are pointing their fingers to President Trump for our national issues rather than finding out the real problems and solve them. Since the coronavirus pandemic started throughout the world in this springtime, everybody has been depending on their political leaders to fix the problem. As we see, this global pandemic has not left yet. Over millions people have effected and/or died due to this global pandemic, which it was created by secret governmental scientists. Rather than solving this quickly, political leaders got involved and trying to resolve this by stages slowly. Right now, in our national Capitol, there is civil war going on between two political parties since Donald Trump won the presidential election in November 2016. Why? Sin issues. Many Americans don't want to change from the laws that former President Obama signed to make the law of the land, which it constricts against God's Words and the original U.S. Constitution. Many children have confused their gender identities because of LGBTQ rights and movements. There have been more unborn babies have not chanced to see the world because of the abortion right.

Last three to four weeks have been wild throughout US and rest of world due to racism and security issues. It is not just "Black Lives Matter" problem, because racism is not going away. We can keep protest against the government, but the law will not solve all the problems. This is "Every Lives Matter" problem. The more laws we want to have, the more problems that exist today. Yes, the laws may help us to keep safe, but some people may have another idea to overcome the laws. It's sad that many people spent several days to protest on the death of one man or certain kind of people by police officers and effect throughout the world. Yet, we spend one day of the year to protest against abortion at Washington, DC, even though abortion has been existed since the Old Testament era.

To solve our national and global crises, we need let go our problems to God. We need to surrender our sinful selves to Him and ask forgiveness for our sins. That's the only way to bring the nation and others into peace. Some of us may understand that bringing global crisis is the part of end-time event. God cannot restore the earth back into original without dealing with Satan and his armies. We are the last generation before God would bring final judgement on Earth. He will separate each of us between His people and Satan's--sheep and goat. Are you one of God's people? We just cannot follow riots and fight for our rights. God knows who we are and we belong to Him. If that is not enough, then you just go follow with the crowd of this world and see what would happen.

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

Focus unto Jesus During Crisis
And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee. (Exodus 15:26 KJV)

I understand that it has been long time for us to adjust a new normal since this global pandemic began throughout the world. Some people are making a demand for our leaders to return to normal. Even though we cannot change our current global situation, we need to keep eyes on Jesus. Many people have been dying due to COVID-19 or hospitalized. Many people point their fingers to political leaders to fix the problem. Even though this global pandemic crisis was created by the secret governmental scientists and hard to find solution to fix their mistakes, we need to look into ourselves and evaluate our relationship with Jesus Christ. Don't too much focus what's going on the news, because it only poisons us with negative and even false information. Instead, focus onto Jesus, because the healing process will begin with our relationship with Jesus Christ.

Heal the Nation
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 Chronicles 7:14 KJV)

We just celebrated the death and resurrected our Lord Jesus Christ with unexpected circumstance. Many of you didn't have chance to go to the church to celebrated the resurrected of our Savior due to Coronavirus pandemic. Instead, you joined the service through virtual live service or drive-in service. But the church is not about we come together into the building to worship God. In I Corinthians 3:16 said, "Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?" We are the church that God wants to use to reach out to other people with His messages of hope. 

We need hope more than ever today as the Book of Revelation continues to fulfill in our generation. We see that many people have lost to stay in touch with God and decided to follow the world system. In our national government, we see that many leaders are falling apart from their faiths in God and make decision that would make everybody satisfy rather than pleasing Him. It's choatic situation that people, especially children, don't know what's right from wrong. For example, some children would think they can change who they are. Since the leaders are legalizing more ungodly laws, our nation is becoming more like the day of Gomorrah and Sodom. Now, our nation is currently facing some consequences.

Does this mean that God would never forgive our sins? No! Don't be misunderstand that God would punish all of us forever. Even though we have sinned against Him, He wants us to come home and willing to forgive our sins. That's what Jesus did for every person in the world 2000 years ago. He faced the most horrible Capitol punishment by dying on the Cross for our sins. You couldn't imagine how much blood shed from His body as Roman soldiers mocked Him physically and emotionally. As Jesus hang on the cross, Jesus said, "'Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?' that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" (Matthew 27:46 KJV.) Can we see the agony that He faced. But He just didn't die for the whole world. On the third day (after 6pm on Saturday), He resurrected back to life. His death and resurrection demonstrates that He is willing to forgive us all our sins and give us another chance to live for Him if we'd repent. 

God wants to heal our nation (and the whole world) from this global pandemic. But He cannot heal our homeland if we'd continue to live in our ways. We need to surrender our wills and let God take over our homeland. Since Obama took over the White House, we have seen our Christian values was really dropping and increasing more evil ways of living, such as providing more funding to abortion industries for women have the right to murder unborn baby, legalizing drugs, and advocating for LGBTQ. Now, since the Trump administrators took over, things are getting even more worse. Almost all Americans are against this president. Have you seen the news lately? Most media news have been reporting Trump negatively. Since Coronavirus started, we have seen many deaths all over the world, especially in our homeland. I recently read one of Facebook posts that said two people killed during pandemic crisis in the Obama administration, and thousands have died during the Trump administration. Most of all Americans may against Trump while Christians try to protect Him. We cannot play favoritism on our leaders. Whether he is your leader or not, we need to put trust and rely upon God and make judgmental decision according to His will. 

Let's bring God back to our homeland rather than putting trust in our leaders. But we need to continue to pray for our leaders to make right decision for our nation.

Global Crisis II
Topic: End of the Age
And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. (Matthew 24:14 KJV)

"When we come into our kingdom (New World Order) our orators will expound great problems which have turned humanity upside down in order to bring the world, at the end under our beneficent rule." (Bill Cooper, Behold A Pale Horse, p. 303).

"... secret societies were planning as far back as 1917 to create an artificial threat ... to bring the world together in a global government called the New World Order." [Bill Cooper, Behold A Pale Horse, p. 27]

Do you see what is happening as Coronavirus has been spreading all over the world? Many businesses have been shut down. People just cannot leave from home rather than for essential stuff. Even the churches have been shut down due to this global pandemic crisis. If the church would have more than ten people, there would be a consequence for the leader of the church: either pastor would have to pay fine or go to jail for at least a year. Are we beginning to see loose our religious freedom?

I do not believe that spreading this global pandemic and other viruses to the rest of the world is by accident. Since the event at Garden of Eden, Satan tried to take over God's creation and pull His people out from Him. One of the way Satan can take over the world is through the New World Order, which it explains in Revelation 13. This Coronavirus may have been well planned by the global government or secret societies. It is a battle between God and His rebellious angel, Satan. Satan cannot control everybody in the world unless they are in group under the governmental authority. This Coronavirus could be just start point of the "beginning of the end."

Are you ready for the returning of our Lord Jesus Christ for His bride? If not, get ready for the exciting day when everybody in the world will see His coming to clean up sins of the world before He would settle His government with His people. Please don't miss the opportunity while there is still have time for you to establish your personal relationship with Him.

If you don't know who Jesus is or if you are lukewarm in your relationship with Jesus Christ, 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 religious groups 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."

You will have bless week.

Global Crisis 2020
Topic: End of the Age

As the Coronavirus is spreading over the world, people are starting to preparing for the worse. Look at the news, there are thousands of people already have effected and some of them already have died due to Coronavirus. Even though the news media said that they are helping us to prepare for the worst, their reports don't seem to be encouraging to us to overcome this global health issues. It's all negative reports and some are informative that could help us to avoid this disease.

 

Who we could turn to during the global crisis? Beginning Revelation 6 we see that Gods judgments would pour upon the earth. There are three sets of 7 judgments that the earth must go through before the millennium years would begin.

 

 Revelation 6 predicted that there would be horsemen appear that would make many global crises throughout the earth. Read verse 8: "And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth." Is this verse sound familiar? We see that many people have suffered through violence, health issues, and food. Is this horseman talking about the current global pandemic crisis? I believe that our generation continues to see and experience the birth pain of God's wrath before there will be the global peace through Jesus Christ. The Bible also said that we, as believers in Christ, will rule the earth with Him.

 

So, what we can do now?

 

1) Rely and trust in Jesus. He is the answer to all of our problems. We have gone astray from God for a very long time. Now, we are suffering for it. Even though He didn't create Coronavirus for us to suffer, we put our trust in government and politic to face some consequences. If you are a bible student or student of the biblical prophecy, you will find out what the government is doing may not be beneficial to us.

 

2) Don't just hear the reports from the news medias. Even though we can find out what's going on the world now through the media source, they may not tell us the whole truth. Do we know why Donald Trump have received so many criticisms since he entered into the White House? Do we know why the previous president received several honors while he turned this nation upside down?

 

Americans decided to let God go and going with our desires. We decided to follow the system of this world and the darkness took over this nation. Morality has gone. Children cannot draw anything that is related to Christianity in the art classroom. Now, children are confused with their identities and let them to choose their own gender rather than accepting who they really are. Did God make mistake? If He is, why they are here? It is impossible that they can choose their own identity before coming out from mothers' wombs. God said in Jeremiah 1:5, "Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations." If we'd reject God as Creator, we are saying that we are gods; we don't have beginning and end. And come with another critical question: Who created us?

 

If we focus on Jesus, there is no weapon formed against us (Isaiah 54:17). Paul said in Romans 8:38-39, "For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

 

I believe that this Coronavirus is another awakening call from God, even though this disease was from the man. Every global event is leading us into the day of glory where we will see the returning of Jesus to judge this world and bring us back to rule the world with Him. In the meantime, time is ticking into the global national disasters, which it will lead into the final stage of World War III.

 

Are you ready when Jesus would return to take His people to His kingdom? Are you ready to face against the enemy with Him? We are in a war zone now. Even though all the nations are going crazy, we are in a spiritual battle that against the real enemy, Satan. This generation will end soon, but God is patiently waiting for you to be on a board with Him. He does not want to lose you forever.

 

Are you saved? Are your love ones and friends saved in the grace of God through 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 don't know who Jesus is or if you are lukewarm in your relationship with Jesus Christ, 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 religious groups 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."

Teach Our Children
Topic: Discipline

And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates. (Deuteronomy 6:6-9 KJV)

 

If you want your children would have successful life, we must teach our children diligently to see God in all aspects of life, not just those that are church related. The news recently reported that one of third grader students decided to suicide himself. The reason was unknown. His action made other fellow students frighten. Even though this generation is scary time for those who do not have relationship with Jesus Christ, we need to involve with our youngsters in all aspects of life and lead them into Jesus Christ. It's so sad for them to decide to end their lives as they just started their journeys.

 

We do not just lead them to churches and schools to receive education, even though the places are good for them. We also need to share God's Words with them. That's why the BIBLE also stands for "be informed before leaving the earth." Jeremiah 29:11 said, "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." In New King James said, "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope."

 

Hebrews 11:40 mention that "God has provided some better thing for us," even our children. God is looking for children to do better things in near future. He doesn't want to see that children would hurt for themselves, such as what we heard from the news media. I do not care if you do not have children, they are looking up to you to feed them with words of wisdom, especially wisdom from the Words of God. We are responsible to nurture them with our actions and words.

Quality Time with God
Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.   Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:   Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. (1 Peter 5:5-7 KJV)

How often we spend each day to have quality time with our Heavenly Father? Five minutes? Twenty minutes? We have spent a lot of times with our families, friends, and jobs, but we have no room for God to intervene with us. We put Him in the box rather than having some quality time with Him. Jesus did not die for us, so we can free from the satanic trap. No! Apostle Paul said in Romans 5:8, "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Jesus died for us, so that we can back to fellowship with Him. The word "fellowship" is a Greek term koinonia, which it means association or communion. We go to the church because not only hear from the words of God, but we can fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ. But we also need to have time to spend one-on-one with God.

Being a Follower of Christ
Topic: Discipline

Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? (Matthew 16:24-26 KJV)

 

Being a follower of Christ may seems to be challenged, but it is worth it for our eternal life. There is no person on the earth who denied himself than Jesus. He suffered for our sins by facing the death penalty on the cross by Roman soldiers. Even though most of His people laughed at Him, Jesus died for the sins of the world. Paul said in Philippians 2:5-8, "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross."

 

Why Jesus suffered for us? Even though He can call His angels, He demonstrated His love for us by taking an action that no one able can do for his friends. God doesn't want us to become religious, but relationship.

He is Our Jehovah-Jireh
Topic: Calvary
Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;) Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God. For the administration of this service not only supplieth the want of the saints, but is abundant also by many thanksgivings unto God… (2 Corinthians 9:10-12 KJV)

In his book, The Lord's Prayer, Drew Hsinger said, "Some translations of the Lord’s Prayer say, 'Give us this day our daily bread.' I kind of paraphrased it, 'God, give us today what we need for today.' This is an acknowledgement that God is our source." Is God your Jehovah-Jireh every day? Who get you up this morning? If God is not the source of your life, you'd not be living today. 

Do you know why many young people have failed from schools today? God is not centered of your household. I understand that many psychologists may tell us that we do not have solid good communication to each other or we have so many financial problems in our lives, but the number one issue is that God is not at the center of our lives. Paul said in Philippians 4:19, "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." God will provide us whatever we need to go through another day if we'd ask Him. He is our Jehovah-Jireh.

Our Satisfactory
Topic: Goal
Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. -- I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. (Philippians 4:11-13 KJV)

Do we satisfy with what we have? Maybe or not? If we would not learn how to be content with everything we currently have, how God can bless us? In his book, The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment, Jeremiah Burroughs said, "A carnal heart knows no way to be contented but this: I have such and such possessions, and if I had this added to them, and the other comfort added that I have not now, then I should be contented. But contentment does not come in that way, it does not come, I say, by adding to what you want, but by subtracting from your desires."

We need to let go some stuffs. Even though God created the earth for us to dwell in, He allowed Satan to rule over the earth for a while. And the earth is filled with all the unhealthy stuffs for our spirit men as well as our physical bodies, such as body tattoos, alcohol/drug, adult entertainment industry, and more. Although there is nothing wrong for having something more (new car, new house, clothes, etc.), we need to be content with what we have before adding them to our closets. 

Jesus said in Matthew 6:30-32, "Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things." Being worrying for stuffs would divide our relationship with Jesus Christ. There are healthy and unhealthy ways to worry. Let us to be content with everything we have by trusting and relying on Jesus Christ.
