The flood subsides

God has never given up on helping those who are willing to stay to be awaken and persevering…

As I Can See

But God had Noah in mind, and all the wild beasts and all the cattle that
were with him in the ark. God sent a wind across the earth and the waters
subsided. The springs of the deep and the sluices of heaven were stopped.
Rain ceased to fall from heaven; the waters gradually ebbed from the
earth. After a hundred and fifty days the waters fell, and in the seventh month,
on the seventeenth day of that month, the ark came to rest on the mountains
of Ararat. The waters gradually fell until the tenth month when, on the first
day of the tenth month, the mountain peaks appeared.
At the end of forty days Noah opened the porthole he had made in the ark
and he sent out the raven. This went off, and flew back and forth until the
waters dried up from the earth. Then he…

The Reason Abraham Became the Ancestor of Faith

There is a profound teaching in Abraham’s life.
A kind of education from God that can be -and ought to be- applied for our everydays.

We should really open our eyes inside for this…

As I Can See

Because Noah’s course was like that, even when God judged the people with the flood, there was no condition upon which the faithless and rebellious people could protest against Heaven. Noah was someone of which God could be proud. The judgement of Noah was the process through which the value of heavenly pride and practical value were established. The sons and daughters of Noah should have become connected to the heart of pride that God wanted to establish, but they disregarded Noah’s devotion and had self-centered thoughts. Heaven was turned upside down.

The same was true for Abraham. It was not easy for him to leave everything behind in Ur of the Chaldeans. Abraham could have led a more joyful life than anyone in the satanic world. His wife was extremely beautiful, and he had abundant wealth.

God called Abraham and drove him the opposite way, toward tribulation. You have…

Eating with sinners

When Jesus was at dinner in his house, a number of tax collectors and sinners
were also sitting at the table with Jesus and his disciples; for there were many of
them among his followers. When the scribes of the Pharisee party saw him eating
with sinners and tax collectors, they said to his disciples, “Why does he eat with
tax collectors and sinners?” When Jesus heard this he said to them, “It is not the
healthy who need the doctor, but the sick. I did not come to call the virtuous,
but sinners.”

  
Mark 2:15-17

Faith guarantees salvation

So far then we have seen that, through our Lord Jesus Christ, by faith we are
judged righteous and at peace With God, since it is by faith and through
Jesus that we have entered this state of grace in which we can boast about
looking forward to God’s glory. But that is not all we can boast about; we can
boast about our sufferings. These sufferings bring patience, as we know, and
patience brings perseverance, and perseverance brings hope, and this hope is
not deceptive, because the love of God has been poured into our hearts by the
Holy Spirit which has been given us. We were still helpless when at his appointed
moment Christ died for sinful men. It is not easy to die even for a good man –
though of course for someone really worthy, a man might be prepared to die –
but what proves that God loves us is that Christ died for us while we were still
sinners. Having died to make us righteous, is it likely that he would now fail
to save us from God’s anger? When we were reconciled to God by the death of
his Son, we were still enemies; now that we have been reconciled, surely we may
count on being saved by the life of his Son? Not merely because we have been
reconciled but because we are filled with joyful trust in God, through our Lord
Jesus Christ, through whom we have already gained our reconciliation.

       
Romans 5:1-11

Against evil counselors

Woe to those who hide from Yahweh
to conceal their plans,
who scheme in the dark
and say, “Who can see us? Who can recognize us?”
What perversity this is !
Is the potter no better than the clay?
Can something that was made say of its maker,
“He did not make me?”
Or a pot say of the potter,
“He is a fool?”
In a short time, a very short time,
shall not Lebanon become fertile land
and fertile land turn into forest?
The deaf, that day,
will hear the words of a book
and, after shadow and darkness,
the eyes of the blind will see.
But the Jowly will rejoice in Yahweh even more
and the poorest exult in the Holy One of Israel;
for tyrants shall be no more, and scoffers vanish,
and all be destroyed who are disposed to do evil:
those who gossip to incriminate others,
those who try at the gate to trip the arbitrator
and get the upright man’s case dismissed for groundless reasons.
Therefore Yahweh speaks,
the God of the House of Jacob,
Abraham’s redeemer:
No longer shall Jacob be ashamed,
no more shall his face grow pale,
for he shall see what my hands have done in his midst,
he shall hold my name holy.
They will hallow the Holy One of Jacob,
stand in awe of the God of Israel.
Erring spirits will Jearn wisdom
and murmurers accept instruction.

  
Isaiah 29:15-24

Happy indeed the man whom God corrects!

Happy indeed the man whom God corrects!
Then do not refuse this lesson from Shaddai.
For he who wounds is he who soothes the sore,
and the hand that hurts is the hand that heals.
Six times he will deliver you from sorrow,
and the seventh, evil shall not touch you.
In time of famine, he will save you from death,
and in wartime from the stroke of the sword.
You shall be safe from the lash of the tongue,
and see the approach of the brigand without fear.
You shall laugh at drought and frost,
and have no fear of the beasts of the earth.
You shall have a pact with the stones of the field,
and live in amity with wild beasts.
You shall find your tent secure,
and your sheepfold untouched when you come.
You shall see your descendants multiply,
your offspring grow like the grass in the fields.
In ripe age you shall go to the grave,
like a wheat sheaf stacked in due season.
All this, we have observed: it is true.
Heed it, and do so to your profit.

 

Job 5:17-27

The basis of the Christian moral life

“You see, God’s grace has been revealed, and it has made salvation possible for the whole human race ·and taught us that what we have to do is to give up everything that does not lead to God, and all our worldly ambitions; we must be self-restrained and live good and religious lives here in this present world, while we are waiting in hope for the blessing which will come with the Appearing of the glory of our great God and Saviour Christ Jesus. He sacrificed himself for us in order to set us free from all wickedness and to purify a people so that it could be his very own and would have no ambition except to do good. Now this is what you are to say, whether you are giving instruction or correcting errors; you can do so with full authority, and no one is to question it.”

Titus 2:11-15
