THE BOOK OF PHILIPPIANS

Dear brothers and sisters,

I have just completed the book of Philippians with my bible study group. Since it is still fresh in my memory, I like to take this opportunity to share with you what God has revealed to me through this great book.

This book has recorded Apostle Paul's life, born in a very prominent family; well trained by Pharisee; a prosecutor of the church; and was to righteousness under the law, before our Lord touched him.

It is due to God blessings that he submitted to the Lord and let Lord transform him to uphold Christ, totally different from his initial belief (false). As a result, he ended up in the prison and lost everything including his well rewarding and promising career as the prosecutor against Churches. However, this turn out to be his blessings in his defense and confirmation of the gospel.


What has happened to Apostle Paul has actually helped to spread the gospel. Through the God's grace, he  lacked nothing despite the fact he had lost everything. Truthfully God has been maintaining and moulding him so that he achieved his destiny.

It illustrate to us, how God set him free and conquered death. Praise the Lord.

Paul had shown us the way to imitated Christ's humility and to do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility regard others as better than himself.

In Philippians 3.1 to 6 he showed us how he broke through from his past strong hold - and made a clear distinction between Law and Grace. Remember that the Law is through Mosses and Grace is through Christ. Christ is much greater than Mosses, so does grace.

Grace is only possible after the individual has acknowledged his sin and truly repent. Thereafter, he will receive the real revelation. And of course it does not apply through the law as the law can not make anyone perfect.

Despite being well grounded with Scripture knowledge, he still press on to his destiny; forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead. In other word, we should stay focus on Christ and do not let our bondage to hold us back.

In Philippians 3:17 Brothers and sisters are called to imitating him and observe those who live according to the example he had given..

Trust the above will inspire you, the same way it has inspired me.

Thanks for your time and have a blessed day everyday,

Quiet Time and prayer

Dear my loving bros and sis,

Quiet Time




Quiet Time is also supreme crucial in Christian walk apart from prayer. As such, trust this post has its own purpose to remind us of this crucial practice.

It is a way to strengthen the individual relationship with God so as you will only listen to His voice and respond it accordingly.

Be Still
The instructions are to share with many people so that everyone will be receiving all the God's blessings.

Let's always pray for one another.

The prayer:

Father,
Thank You for each and every day You have blessed us here on earth.
Thank You for Your tender mercies..
Thank You for giving us friends and family to share these Internet joys with.
I ask You to bless my friends, relatives and those I care deeply for who are reading this right now.

Where there is joy, give them continued joy,
Where there is pain, give them your peace and mercy.

Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence.
Where there is need, fulfill their needs.

Bless their homes, families, finances, their goings and their comings

In Jesus' name Amen.

Dear my loving bros and sis,

Little John the Baptist

Matt. 18:4-5
"Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the
greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And who ever welcomes a little child like this
in my name welcomes me. "



Johnny's Mother looked out the window and noticed Him "playing church" with their cat..

He had the cat sitting quietly and he was preaching to it. She smiled and went about
her work. A while later she heard loud meowing and hissing and ran back To the open window to see Johnny baptizing the cat in a tub of water. She called out, "Johnny,
stop that! The cat is afraid of water!"

Johnny looked up at her and said, "He should have thought about that before he joined my church."


Smile, it gives your face something to do!

Five fingers prayer

Dear my loving bros and sis in Christ,

Jeremiah 29:11

"I alone know the plans I have for you, plans to bring you the prosperity and not disaster, plans to bring about the future you hope for."


This is so neat. I had never heard this before. This is beautiful - and it is surely worth making the 5 finger prayer a part of our lives.

1. Your thumb is nearest you. So begin your prayers by praying for those closest to you. They are the easiest to remember. To pray for our loved ones is, as C. S. Lewis once said, a 'sweet duty.'

2. The next finger is the pointing finger. Pray for those who teach, instruct and heal. This includes teachers, doctors, and ministers. They need support and wisdom in pointing others in the right direction. Keep them in your prayers.

3. The next finger is the tallest finger. It reminds us of our leaders. Pray for the president, leaders in business and industry, and administrators. These people shape our nation and guide public opinion. They need God's guidance.

4. The fourth finger is our ring finger.. Surprising to many is the fact that this is our weakest finger, as any piano teacher will testify. It should remind us to pray for those who are weak, in trouble or in pain. They need your prayers day and night. You cannot pray too much for them.

5.. And lastly comes our little finger - the smallest finger of all which is where we should place ourselves in relation to God and others. As the Bible says, 'The least shall be the greatest among you.' Your pinkie should remind you to pray for yourself. By the time you have prayed for the other four groups, your own needs will be put into proper perspective and you will be able to pray for yourself more effectively.

Brighten someone's day! Share this with someone special.... I did.


Don't tell God how big your storm is; Tell the storm how big your God is!!!!!


God bless,

Respecting love

To my loving bros and sis,

*~*~*~*~*~*~ *~*~*~*~* ~*~*~*~*~ *~*~*~*~*~*~ *~*~*~*~* ~*~*~*~
RESPECTING LOVE...
*~*~*~*~*~*~ *~*~*~*~* ~*~*~*~*~ *~*~*~*~* ~*~*~*~*~ *~*~*~*~* ~


This is not exactly a love story, but more about learning how to respect love ....


To My Friends Who Are...MARRIED


Love is not about "it's your fault", but "I'm sorry", not "where are you' but "I'm right here", not "how could you" but "I understand", not "I wish you were", but "I'm thankful you are."



To My Friends Who Are...ENGAGED

The true measure of compatibility is not the years spent together but how good you are for each other.



To My Friends Who Are...NOT SO SINGLE

Love isn't about becoming somebody else's "perfect person." It's about finding someone who helps you become the best person you can be.



To My Friends Who Are...HEARTBROKEN

Heartbreaks last as long as you want and cut deep as you allow them to go. The challenge is not how to survive heartbreaks but to learn from them.



To My Friends Who Are...NAIVE

How to be in love: Fall but don't stumble, be consistent but not too persistent, share and never be unfair, understand and try not to demand, and get hurt but never keep the pain.



To My Friends Who Are...SEARCHING

True love cannot be found where it does not truly exist, nor can it be hidden where it truly does. Love is magic. The more we hide it, the more it shows; the more you suppress it, the more it grows.



To My Friends Who Are...PLAYBOY/GIRL TYPE

Never say I love if you don't care. Never talk about feelings if they aren't there. Never touch a life if you mean to break a heart. Never look in the eye when what you do is lie. The cruelest thing a guy can do to a girl is to let her fall in love when he doesn't intend to catch her fall.



To My Friends Who Are...POSSESSIVE

It breaks your heart to see the one you love happy with someone else but it's more painful to know that the one you love is unhappy with you.



To My Friends Who Are...AFRAID TO CONFESS

Love hurts when you break up with someone. It hurts even more when someone breaks up with you. But love hurts the most when the person you love has no idea how you feel.



To My Friends Who Are...STILL HOLDING ON

A sad thing about life is that when you meet someone who means a lot to you, only to find out in the end that it was never bound to be and we just have to let go.



To My Friends Who Are...SINGLE

Love is like a butterfly.. The more you chase it, the more it eludes you. But if you just let it fly, it would come to you when you least expect it. Love can make you happy but often times it hurts, but love's only special when you give it to someone who is worth it. So take your time and choose the best!

God bless,

James Oh

Treasure Every moment of your life

Dear loving Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Treasure every moment you have!
Do tell all those that you love.
Treasure it even more and share.
Especially with a heartfelt love.

Love all those very special people.
Ones you trust with your life.
Time truly waits for no one.
So tell them, don't waste time.

Just learn from your mistakes.
Our actions we can rearrange.


Tomorrow is a mystery.
Let's plan for the surprise.
Get your life in order.
Look life straight in the eye.


Today is a gift.
Appreciate each breath you take.
Make the most of daily life.
Enjoy your slice of today's cake.


Life is definitely a present!

Take each day and fill it up.
Greet life with unconditional love.


Wishing You a Wonderful Day!

Unemployed graduate

UNEMPLOYED GRADUATE:

An unemployed graduate woke up one morning and checked his pocket. All he had left was $10. He decided to use it to buy food and then wait for death as he was too proud to go begging. He was frustrated as he could find no job, and nobody was ready to help him.

He bought food and as he sat down to eat, an old man and two little children came along and asked him to help them with food as they had not eaten for almost a week. He looked at them. They were so lean that he could see their bones coming out. Their eyes had gone into the socket. With the last bit of compassion he had, he gave them the food. The old man and children prayed that God would bless and prosper him and then gave him a very old coin. The young graduate said to them 'you need the prayer more than I do'.

With no money, no job, no food, the young graduate went under the bridge to rest and wait for death. As he was about to sleep, he saw an old newspaper on the ground. He picked it up, and suddenly he saw an advertisement for people with old coins to come to a certain address.


He decided to go there with the old coin the old man gave him. On getting to the place, he gave the proprietor the coin. The proprietor screamed, brought out a big book and showed the young graduate a photograph. This same old coin was worth 3 million dollars. The young graduate was overjoyed as the proprietor gave him a bank draft for 3 million dollars within an hour. He collected the Bank Draft and went in search of the old man and little children.

By the time he got to where he left them eating, they had gone. He asked the owner of the canteen if he knew them. He said no but they left a note for you. He quickly opened the note thinking it would lead him to find them.

This is what the note said: 'You gave us your all and we have rewarded you back with the coin,' signed God the Father, The Son and The Holy Ghost. 1 Kings 17:10-16; Matthew 11:28-30

PRAYER:
Here is your financial blessing! It's a simple prayer, you've got 30 seconds. If you need a financial blessing,continue reading this post.

Heavenly Father, most Gracious and Loving God,
I pray to you that you abundantly Bless my family and me. I know that you recognize, that a family is more than just a mother, father, sister, brother husband and wife, but all Who believe and trust in you.

Father, I send up a prayer request for financial blessing for not only the person who sent this to me, but for Me and all that I have forwarded this message on to. And that the power of joined prayer by those who believe and trust in you is more powerful than anything.

I thank you in advance for your blessings.

Father God, deliver the person reading this right now and those who will read it in the near future from debt and debt burdens. Release your Godly wisdom that I may be a good steward over all that You have given me Father, for I know how wonderful and mighty You are and how if we just obey You and walk in Your word and have the faith of a Mustard seed that You will pour out blessings.

I thank You now Lord for the recent blessings I have received and for the blessings yet to come Because I know You are not done with me yet.
In Jesus name, I pray,
Amen
