new house1

 

Genesis 2:24

“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.”

Marriage is a life marking event that turns a new chapter in one’s life!..When a couple gets engaged, one of the first things they need to think is: Where are we going to live? Needless to say that both of them will leave their parents house and form a new family, by living in a new house by themselves.

In the days of old (Things are a bit different now!..), no women or men would abandon their father’s house by any other reason than to get married.

Stabilising a parallel in our spiritual life, it’s not different if we want God to give us a new life!… In order for God to move within our lives, we also need to get married with Him!…Marriage is commitment, faithfulness, submission, love, surrender and above all SACRIFICE for one another!…

Look at what the Holy Scriptures says about the wife:

Genesis 3:16

Your desire shall be for your husband,
And he shall rule over you.”

If I want a new life, I must surrender my desires and cravings in order to please God. The Lord Jesus is the groom and the church the bride, therefore that’s the way we should conduct our lives.

If you haven’t got a new life (House), most probably you haven’t got married with the Lord Jesus yet, that’s why He hasn’t moved IN, trough the Holy Spirit.

Donkey!…

Donkey

 

A donkey returned to his house, full of happiness and speaks to his mum:

 

“ I went to a city and when I got there people clapped hands to me, the crowds were cheering me up and were stretching their graments on the floor…Everybody was happy with my presence.

 

His mother questioned if he was alone and the donkey said: No, I was carring a men by the name of Jesus. So his mother told him:

 

“My son, go back to that city, but now alone!…”

 

His son answered back and said::

 

“When I have an opportunity, I will go back….When he returned to that city alone, all those who passed by him, did the opposite!…He was badly treated, sweared at and even physically beaten up.

 

Returning to his house, said to his mum:

 

I am sad!..For nothing happen with me, I was sweared at, nobody clapped hands to me, no honor!..I was only abused and badly treated. They didn’t recognized me mum!…

 

Annoyed the donkey asked his mum: “ Why has that happen with me?”

 

His mother told him: My dear son, you without JESUS, are just a donkey!….

BucketAre you in a catch 22 situation?

What’s that, you may ask? Its a dilemma or difficult circumstance from which there is no escape because of mutually conflicting or dependent conditions.

In a certain ocasion there was a situation that the disciples didn’t know what to do. There were over 5.000 men alone, apart of women and children to be fed and there was no way around. You most probably have heard or read about the multiplication that the Lord Jesus performed. Andrew, one of the disciples gave a suggestion.

Give it a glance!…

John 6

(The Message)

8-9 One of the disciples—it was Andrew, brother to Simon Peter—said, “There’s a little boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish. But that’s a drop in the bucket for a crowd like this.”

He didn’t believe that there was a way out of it. What they had wasn’t enough!…It was a “drop in the bucket!..”

Well the Lord Jesus used exactly that ” Drop in the Bucket” to make the impossible happen.

In a nutshell:

Use your  “Drop in the Bucket”!…Your talents, skills, eagerness and drive to succeed, perseverance, determination, boldness, etc..and above all faith in God’s word!…It will happen!..

manna1

God took the the hebrews out of slavery, from the bondage of Egypt and pharaoh and lead them trough the desert in order to take possession of the promise land. There was a prophecy made, and God had to fulfil it. 

Now, for the prophecy to be fulfilled, God had to take care of them, which He did!…He provided a kind of bread, called manna!..God sent provision, they ate of the manna, God made water to came out of the rock and even meat God provided!…Nothing, absolutlely nothing lacked for their survival. By night they had a columm  of fire ( To give them light and to warm them from cold temperatures), by day God sent a cloud ( To protect them from the heat).

The miracles and  manifestation of God’s power that they saw and provision that they received, should have given them the absolutely assurance that the prophecy was going to happen and they shouldn’t divert their eyes from their main goal- The Promise land.

But that’s exactly what they did!..They complained, murmured and wanted to go back to Egypt.

The point I want to make here is that many get used to God’s provision!…But God wants to make you great and give you the promise land!…

Let’s see:

The typical average life:  The guy that has a job, lives in a flat where a mortgage has been made for 35 years, his kids study on a public school, when he’s sick goes to a public hospital, takes a bus to go work or has a 2nd hand car. Usualy eats and dresses porly. Generally  is struggling to pay his bills and can’t afford to have a life o quality!.It’s a survivor!… It’s the manna guy!…

The one who has quality of life: It’s an employer, lives in his own house, his kids study on private schools, has private health care, drives an expensive last  model car, has luxury vacations, makes shopping of the best brands, eats of the best of the land,etc..

The promise land it’s not to conquer only the physical, the material, but above all our salvation!…To be happily married, healthy, balanced and to have the peace and the inner joy.

John 16:24

Common English Bible (CEB)

“(…)  Ask and you will receive so that your joy will be complete.

Don’t fix your eyes on the crumbs, rather on the bread that God wants to give you.

Defibrilator

Defibrillation is a common treatment for life-threatening cardiac dysrhythmias, ventricular fibrillation and pulseless ventricular tachycardia.. Defibrillation consists of delivering a therapeutic dose of electrical energy to the heart with a device called a defibrillator. This depolarizes a critical mass of the heart muscle, terminates the dysrhythmia and allows normal sinus rhythm to be reestablished by the body’s natural pacemaker, in the sinoatrial node of the heart.

That electric shock bring back the pulse and normalises the heart beat.

But what can we learn with that?

Many people have been trough disaster in life, relationships, discouragement, addictions, depression, sickness, unemployment, divorce, bereavement, etc.. They are “lifeless” due to their situation and if nothing is done they will perish and suffer. These people need as well a “High Energy” !…A dose of encouragement, strength, guidance and hope…They need a “Spiritual defibrillation”!…

And where is the “Spiritual defibrillator” you may ask? Well it’s simple!…YOU SHOULD BE ONE!…

Christians should be “Spiritual defibrillators” in the hands of God, by going around and revive those that are perishing!…

BEWARE, maybe there’s someone around you in need of a Spiritual Chock!…

What a Chameleon and some “Christians” have in common? 

Bear with me and I will let you know.

Have you seen a Chameleon? Do you know his characteristics? Color change in chameleons has functions in social signaling and in reactions to temperature and other conditions, as well as in camouflage.  The relative importance of these functions varies with the circumstances and environment they are in.

That’s exactly what happens with many who say they are Christians!…They change according the circumstances. Some are indeed Christians on a Sunday morning. They come to church, worship, praise God, give offerings and tithe. However Monday to Saturday they go clubbing, swear words, gossip, live in fornication, adultery, sexual promiscuity, lying, shout, yell, become moody, hold grudges, etc..

Here goes a list of Characteristics of Chameleon Christians“.

  • Mood swings
  • Double personality
  • Lack of sincerity
  • Religiousness
  • Lack of commitment
  • Lack of fear of God
  • Unfaithfulness
  • Selfishness

That’s the question we should ask ourselves: I am a true Christian or a Chameleon one?

We can see trough the video that the Lion was defeated by the Zebra kick!…Nowadays it’s not different!…The “Lion” it’s there hunting, to devour, kill, steal and destroy!…

We only have one option!… “Kick” otherwise we will be devoured by them.

Now, only those who have the Holy Spirit are able to “kick”- the doubts, fears, insecurity, complexes, negativity, past traumas, anxiety, lust, sexual immorality, lies, gossip, hatred, grudges, etc…

I can Call it  “God’s Kick”- Without the Holy Spirit we are week and unable to “Kick”.

Yes it is positive!!!

I started to love my son since the moment that I discovered I was pregnant. Without seeing him my love for him grew up each day. My life totally changed since the day I had the positive result in my hands. I change my life, my routine, my habits.

I humbled many times asking those who were more experienced  than me…. In other words I put all my efforts in order to allow this life that was inside of me to develop in a perfect way and come to this world perfect.

The care with myself, the time to know more things about maternity, the change of habits and so many other things and sacrifices, marked those 9 months.

127-1 MÊS (125)

 Yes is positive! God wants to born in you. The question is do you want to develop this pregnancy? 

If the answer is yes, here go 10 tips:

  • This pregnancy only will happen if you have daily intimacy with God
  •  A total surrender of your life it is required
  •  A changing of life, leaving behind the habits, costumes, maybe a routine, something that before was so normal, now can’t be anymore
  • Humbleness to recognise that you don’t know anything
  • Take care of yourself, do not be contaminated with things of your flesh, from the world. Remember devil’s plan it is to kill and destroy this little seed inside of you.
  • Show interest. Know better about the One that will born inside of you
  • See if you are giving Him the conditions for Him to develop inside of you
  • Are you feeding Him??? Are you giving Him the quality of your time, your thoughts, your attitudes???
  • Are you sacrificing towards Him? That means a lot, because many things need to stay behind
  •  Put all your efforts and all your strength for this BIRTH to happen on time!..

 It is time to push!

Ethernet or Wireless

Speaking in terms of internet connection, there’s basically two ways of connecting your computer. By ethernet connection, which comes directly from the router or wirelessly ( Meaning without any wires attached).

Now I’m going to use this example to establish a parallel between two types of Christians!…Let’s called them the “Ethernet Christians” and “Wireless Christians”.

The“Ethernet Christians” are those whose connection is only in the church!…In the church they are mindful and thoughtful of God’s ways and will, however their connection is limited to that space. After they leave the church, their connection stops, their prayer stops, the meditation in God’s word stops, they stop to be in the spirit and go back to please their flesh, cravings and desires. Then because there’s no connection one will be without guidance, strength and will be lost.

The “Wireless Christians” are those that no matter where they are in the church, work, home, etc… they are always connected with God!…Not necessary trough prayers, fasting or the like, but above all in Spirit, mindful and thoughtful on how to do God’d will and to please him. They don’t depend on a pastor, church, or 3rd parties, they are inspired, revived and renewed by their own connection with God.

The “Wireless Christians” know that in order to have a “strong signal” they need to be closed to the “Router” otherwise they will become weak. We need to be closed to the “Root” of strength, energy, positivity, guidance, inspiration, peace, wisdom, self-control, etc…

The Lord Jesus is called the Root of David (Revelation 5:5).

Whom have we been?

The “Ethernet Christian” or the “Wireless Christian”?

Ever since we start our knowledge, from nursery to primary school, sports, hobbies, etc… there are people that always are very good at what they do. What makes them to be outstanding? To make a difference?

The answer is 100%!…

Bear with me and I will explain it properly.

100% of:

  • Dedication or Devotion
  • Focus
  • Certainty or Assurance
  • Determination
  • Perseverance
  • Action
  • Self Belief
In other words: One has to place Body, Soul and Spirit in what he wants to accomplish.

Can a body walk, breathe, think or survive without head? It’s impossible isn’t it? Well, what if I tell you that many people, spiritually wise are just like that!….A body without head.

How can that be? Give a glance to the following word?

And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.”

Colossians 1:18

Jesus Christ is the head…what is the head for?  The head is the intellect, understanding, the guide of the body, the center of our decisions, everything passes by the head. Now if one lacks the Head ( Not the physical one, rather the Spiritual) how can one be guided and take good decisions? Usually those who don’t make Jesus their head, they take decision from the heart, by their emotions, feelings, what their senses tell them.

That is very dangerous!…To follow the heart is the same as entering in a path full of deceit, because that’s what the heart is-DECEITFUL!…

How many wrong decisions we took in our lives following our heart? If you recall, that my have happen countless times ? Many even say: I always follow my heart!..

Is as you are going to an unknown place and you ask a child the right direction!…He will tell you that either doesn’t know or probably sent you the in the wrong way! It’s just not reliable.

In a practical way: The head (Jesus Christ) is not about being religious, to say: I believe, to attend a church, rather to have God’s mind!..

God’s mind is about His way of thinking. Is about letting Him guide you with intelligence not with emotions, and that is only possible trough His Spirit, the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit! The Holy Spirit gives you the mind of God, His vision, His strength, His perseverance, His wisdom, His sagacity!…

When you have “God’s head” you will always be lead to the right way, everything you do or plan will have the preeminence. Why? Because you are giving your mind to God.

Preeminence: (Thesaurus)

Chief, distinguished, excellent, major, number one, outstanding, paramount, principal, surpassing, etc…

These are the characteristics you will have if you exchange your mind by God’s one!…The Holy Spirit.

Obviously that you need to get involved with the things of God, not with the things of this world only.

Do you want to change yours?
