Now where is the Church?

 

  
 The Church are People not the building, the building only housed the church! 

The Church building became a status symbol in the past, an expensive buildings speaks of the Church's elegance and beauty, while the true church (people) speaks of a transformed character, maturity and growth, Not the building. 

 
                   
                                     In Prayer we  always makes a difference!

The Holy innocents. How many innocent lives are slaughtered and murderously turned into pieces today?


 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐇𝐨𝐥𝐲 𝐈𝐧𝐧𝐨𝐜𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬

We remember this day, O God, the slaughter of the holy innocents of Bethlehem by the order of King Herod. Receive, we beseech thee, into the arms of thy mercy all innocent victims; and by thy great might frustrate the designs of evil tyrants and establish thy rule of justice, love, and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Why the Holly innocents was the choice one to suffer of these tyranny, vicious merciless evil? Because it provokes the holiness, wrath and pierces the heart of God! 

God allowed it, to spare the righteous? 

Matthew 2:18 (KJV) In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.


Some ancient understanding of God's Omnipresence. A voice crying from the past, to make straight the way of the Lord for His post modern Advent


     
„Gott ist an keinem Ort, denn er ist immateriell und unbegrenzt.
Er selbst ist sein Ort, da er alles erfüllt und über allem ist und alles zusammenhält.
Man sagt aber auch, er sei an einem Ort. Ort Gottes heißt der Ort, wo seine Wirksamkeit sich offenbart." -
Heiliger Johannes v. Damaskus ( *650 + 749)
′′ God is not in any place, for he is intangible and unlimited.
He himself is his place, because he is fulfilling everything, above all else, and holds everything together.
But they also say he's in one place. Place of God is called the place where it's effectiveness is revealed."
St. John v. Damascus (* 650 + 749)

         This will challenge some modern understanding on the theology of God's omnipresence.

The twelve Apostle


                         Do we still have the Ministry of the Apostle today?

Thank you!




 Happy Thanksgiving! 

Thanking God is not base in what we received, but in How We Give Him back what is due to Him.

 In giving, it's the attitude of the Heart that matters!  

Giving with the right heart is always rewarded with the fullness of Joy! 

Give thanks to the Lord, for it is the will of God in Christ Jesus.

Christ is the Coming King on His Second Advent. Be watchful and vigilant!


 20But the fact is, Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep. 21For since by a man death came, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead. 22For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. 23But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ’s at His coming, 24then comes the end, when He hands over the kingdom to our God and Father, when He has abolished all rule and all authority and power. 25For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. 26The last enemy that will be abolished is death. 27For He has put all things in subjection under His feet. But when He says, “All things are put in subjection,” it is clear that this excludes the Father who put all things in subjection to Him. 28When all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subjected to the One who subjected all things to Him, so that God may be all in all.

Rose from the dead and the First fruits of those who died ..

He is the Resurrection and the life

There is and order and own order.

Then end of the age will take place.

A turned over of the kingdom to God the Father.after abolishing All rule and All authority

To reign until he put all His enemies on His feet.and all in subjection to Him.

When all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subjected to the One who subjected all things to Him, so that God may be all in all. 

The last enemy to be defeated is Death!

Something to consider, but will you ignore and refuse? " the bleating of the Sheep".

                            This will be the reading this coming Sunday November 22, 2020 timely, to call our                                                  attention.

            The Judgement, Matthew 25: 31 46. (NASB)

31 "But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne. 
32 "All the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; 
33 and He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on the left. 
34 "Then the King will say to those on His right'Come, you who are blessed of My Fatherinherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 
35 'For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; 
36 naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.' 
37 "Then the righteous will answer Him, 'Lordwhen did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? 
38 'And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? 
39 'When did we see You sickor in prison, and come to You?' 
40 "The King will answer and say to them, 'Truly I say to you, to the extent * that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.' 
41 "Then He will also say to those on His left, 'Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels; 
42 for I was hungry, and you gave Me nothing to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me nothing to drink; 
43 I was a stranger, and you did not invite Me in; naked, and you did not clothe Me; sick, and in prison, and you did not visit Me.' 
44 "Then they themselves also will answer'Lordwhen did we see You hungryor thirstyor a strangeror nakedor sickor in prison, and did not take care of You?' 
45 "Then He will answer them, 'Truly I say to you, to the extent * that you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.' 

46 "These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."

An appeal to those who have a compassionate and sensitive hearts, to generously and freely, extend their hands to these lowly ones! 

The hands of Jesus Christ was not permanently nailed on the cross, but was resurrected, released and became an extend hands to help, heal embrace and bless! Let Christ hands be our hands to freely bless others,

A time to extend our little, but precious to the less fortunate ones to rise again from what was a great lost. 

Some will say, I have given in the past and NO need to give today. May I ask you, did God stop blessing you, if so then maybe there no intention to give, But the truth is, He never stop blessing you with more than enough even with super overflowing abundance, and with all due respect to Him who does not deprive you in giving less, but His very best. Then it's time to give your best!
