Today in History
1739
– English revivalist George Whitefield wrote in a letter: “Follow after, but do not run before the blessed Spirit; if you do, although you may benefit others, and God may overrule everything for your own good, yet you will certainly destroy the peace of your own soul.”

Inspirational Words
Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life—in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing.
Philippians 2:14-16 (NIV)

Today’s Word
Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done.

Rapture ready – tried and true

ChristianBlessings

Living a life in the Spirit of God is a blessing no religion on earth can offer. Life in the Spirit is the essence of Christianity. Christ takes you through every trial in life. Walking in the Spirit and not in the flesh is the sacred theme of the Holy Bible. This kind of life proves the heart is cleansed from sin by a living Christ and ready for the Rapture of the Church. Staying true to God is a life that gets better day by day and develops strength in the inner man. It builds confidence and faith that Christ takes care of every need in life no matter the situation. The tried and true life teaches believers in Christ  the reality of being a Christian. Recognition and consciousness of Christ on a daily level builds parenthood, son-ship, domestic relationships, happiness, joy, and confidence in life no religion can offer. Recognition and consciousness of…

Bring Forth the Kingdom

The Narrow Path

Luke 21:29-31
Jesus told his disciples a parable. “Consider the fig tree and all the other trees. When their buds burst open, you see for yourselves and know that summer is now near; in the same way, when you see these things happening, know that the kingdom of God is near.

Jesus consistently spoke about the “kingdom of God” not as some distant destination…but as being near. Everything that Jesus did was aimed at bringing this “kingdom of God” alive in the present. In the prayer that He taught His followers He instructed them to pray, “Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as in heaven” (Matthew 6:10). Please note the words, “on earth”! Jesus wants our cooperation in this endeavor by following Him in all His ways. Reach out to those on the fringes. Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, comfort the sick, and…

A Week of Thanksgiving (Creation)

Faith and Footsteps

imageIt’s no surprise that I have a great affinity for the outdoors. I find a solemn strength in the creations of God. I am especially thankful for the evidence that nature provides for the existence of Him. The goodness of God is evident in all that is around me and my faith is rejuvenated every time I am at peace within nature. A calm beauty resides within even the smallest creatures and the vast abundance of them reminds me of God’s creativity and love. It’s amazing to know all of this was created simply for our pleasure and sustenance. It makes me that much more in awe of the Creator. At the end of creating our world God perceived that it was good and I would have to wholeheartedly agree!

6 Reasons Why You Need A Strong Mentor In Your 20s

Thought Catalog

orion_Katerinaorion_Katerina

Some of the most meaningful relationships we develop in our 20s are with those who push us to reach our full potential. No matter how insurmountable our goals may seem, a strong leader provides us with a clear example of what we are capable of. Here are a few reasons why we could all use such a mentor in our 20s.

1. We need to receive honest feedback.


There are two unproductive types of feedback that we regularly receive in our 20s: negative feedback from those who are there only to discourage us, and insincere feedback, from those who are more concerned with our emotional state than the truth. The role of a mentor is to strike the sweet spot in between — by highlighting our strengths convincingly enough to encourage us, but also pointing out where we have room to grow. We need those constructive nudges to push…

THE HOUR KNOWETH NO MAN!

On a sunny afternoon, she stood up from her study chair, and went straight to the window. As she looked through, the popular third mainland bridge caught her attention! She gazed at the various cars on both lanes, going in different directions on top speed! Then she paused as a thought flashed through her mind: “Not all that leaves home, gets back home; not all that sees the breaking of a day, stays to experience the night”. Weird thought you say, but it is the fact! Then she said: What if all man can be pre-informed about his/her ‘last minute’ on earth or given the privilege to know the ‘last hour’ before rapture; probably, many will be prepared and make things right! But she arrived at the conclusion that: “The Hour: Knoweth no man!”

Everyone set out for different missions at different times, on each day; but not everyone reach their destinations! We’ve heard stories like:
-The woman went out to make her hair in preparation for the week; but had an accident on her way back…
-The man said he was going to the supermarket, but slumped and died…
-The young man only complained of slight headache, and now he’s no more…
-The young lady just got back from church, slept, and that was the end…
But my question is: WERE THEY PREPARED FOR DEATH; probably NO! Whether we like it or not, either by death or rapture; ONE DAY, we’ll all leave this world! Irrespective of our position, wealth, fame, title; ONE thing is inevitable if Jesus tarry; and that is DEATH!

My dear brothers/sisters, do you have an idea of that ‘last hour’? Matthew 24:36: “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only”. Beloved, won’t it be wise to yield your life totally to God, put on the robe of righteousness, and live each day with eternity in view? Scared of being called names; isn’t it better to be ridiculed here just for the sake of Christ and be celebrated in Heaven by Christ? Is anything too big to sacrifice for the great glory above? When a man crosses to the ‘other side’, he/she can NEVER return here to make whatever amendments; whoever is gone, is gone forever to receive either CONDEMNATION or COMMENDATION based on his/her work/actions here on earth! I put this question to us all: “Where will you spend eternity? When death comes knocking, what state will it find you? When rapture takes place, will you be prepared?” Remember, only the pure in heart shall see God(Matthew 5:8). Still playing with sin? Jesus is crying out to you now to COME; won’t you heed His call? Would you rather wait till the word ‘COME’ changes to ‘DEPART’ on that judgement day? Return to Jesus now, for tomorrow may be too late!
