The Impartation of the Gifts of the Holy Ghost

        Tewodros    |    Jun. 20, 2015    


One of the good things about this kind of impartation is that it is peaceful and full of compassion for others. It is as if something is flowing non-stop with in us to give us rest and peace. When that happens, we will also want to share that with the rest of the world with great ambition and zeal for the kingdom of God. We would feel empathy for those who are going through tough times with or without their consent.

On the contrary, when we are out of the presence of God, we will not feel love and kindness for others. All we think all day is to make us happy and not to care for others. The presence of God creates initiation in you to do good with your time and with all you have got. He wants you to share your belongings with the nee Read More +

Our Reward Comes from God

        Tewodros    |    Jun. 20, 2015    


Our reward is serving God's name. If there is something that fills my heart with joy is my humble service to God. If there is something that I will never regret doing and would like to do the rest of my life is my humble worship to you, my Lord. Just the word that says I am your servant of the Holy God stirs joy and happiness together in my heart. 

That I am not exalting your name in vain. That I am not working for money and fame that everybody will leave it in here. You are my reward in deed that I have profited in serving your Holy name. If I trusted flesh that my reward comes from them, I will be piteous man. If my heart leaps with joy so that I can accumulate a vast amount of earthly treasure, how miserable would I be? But you have called me by name and I became the son of the most high through Christ Jesus serving your name.&nb Read More +

There is always a solution through God

        Tewodros    |    May. 24, 2015    


I learned that the problem we experience in life stays there as long as we want it to be there. Hence take no action to change it. Moreover, we don’t want to change our situation since we put much interest in our way of thinking. We put too much reason not to try again after we fall. We know excuses are not answers to our problem. May be we are afraid not to fall again. We like being who we are now. 

For winners, getting up again is not a problem. Failing is not an option. No matter how and how many times they fail. There is still time for winning. The battle is not over until they win. They have always saved little energy to ignite their next attempt.  Read More +

Never Quit Never Give-up

        Tewodros    |    Apr. 23, 2015    


There could be a time that we may fall again one more time. But the most important thing is that we need to get up and get out from the pit we fell into no matter how deep it is.

The result of this experience is that we become empowered once more again to sit at the table and write our past with praise.

One of the reasons we fail is that we think the promise is too far to grasp. We think it is too dark to see. 

We may feel like we have nothing to do to speed up. We got also a little bit discouraged by our current situation.

May be we are broken and helpless. Life could be tough sometimes. And for that reason, we may think we have no options but to give Read More +

To be Content with what We have

        Tewodros    |    Apr. 19, 2015    


This is a lesson from the Bible about the story of a man who tried to take what he doesn’t deserve by lies and deception. This is also a lesson that we should not exploit the people of God for our service to them.

2 Kings 5

He returned to the man of God with all his attendants. He came and stood before Elisha, saying, “Now I know for certain that there’s no God anywhere on earth except in Israel. Please accept a gift from your servant.”

A Song of Praise

        Tewodros    |    Apr. 19, 2015    


I praise you Lord for the good things you have done in my life. When they have gathered around us to consume our soul. When the enemy takes us by surprise and when our soul gets frustrated. When fear consumes us like a fire and we have nowhere to go. When they have declared death on our soul and we have no one to trust but you.

We came to you by faith that we know you are awesome God. We don’t turn our eyes to the left or to the right. We looked up on to you as our eyes always look onto you. You haven’t let us down or make us feel guilty.

Rather you gave us hope after hope that we gain strength and not lose our faith. The enemy come directly at us to distract us and make us complain. But we do not take any of his accusations to our heart. Instead, in the middle of our tribulation and sorrow, we shout on to you and me make our suffering known to y Read More +

God breaks us to Fix

God breaks us to Fix

Have you ever wonder why your life sometimes goes through tough times.

If you have, the reason could be God is like a gardener who always makes his garden looks beautiful by taking extra time and effort to make it nice and clean.

He even prunes some of its plants so that they can bear more fruits. Pruning is essential gardening skill that allows a healthy growth of plants.

The gardener has this special skill to protect and take a good care of his garden. Our father is also a good gardener and shepherd for his sheep. Read More +

Psalm 91

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,  my God, in whom I trust.”

Surely he will save you  from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly estilence. He will cover you with his feathers,  and under his wings you will find refuge;    his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,  nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at your side,  ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near y Read More +

Love

        Fasika    |    Mar. 4, 2015    


What if I could speak all languages of humans and of angels?

If I did not love others, I would be nothing more than a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

What if I could prophesy and understand all secrets and all knowledge? And what if I had faith that moved mountains?

I would be nothing, unless I loved others.

What if I gave away all that I owned and let myself be burned alive?

I would gain nothing, unless I loved others. 

Love is kind and patient, never jealous, boastful, proud, or rude.

Love isn’t selfish  or quick tempered.

It doesn’t keep a record  of wrongs that others do.

Love rejoices in the truth, but not in ev Read More +

An Eagle Lived Like a Chicken

        tewodros    |    Mar. 20, 2014    



While we were called to live our lives like an eagle or like a wine that creates a soothing feeling in wounded body or as Olive Tree Oil that heals the wound, instead we lived our lives like a thorn bush.

What a great disappointment this would be to the Lord and to us. But we didn't know, do we? We eat and walk like a chicken. We strive and strive to jump in the air just a little bit. Why can't we fly? I believe it is because we trusted more of our circumstances than our dreams and aspirations.

We don't have the courage to look up and the faith we need to have to visualize and anticipate our destiny far beyond our present situations. There is another identity that God created in Christ. But we are afraid to become it. Therefore we put more attention on what is near to us rather that what is to be captured by fai Read More +

The nature of our relationship with others - Part 2

        fasika    |    Mar. 18, 2014    


He wants us to be happy also. He wants us more than what we are with our things. We need to be thankful and our soul will be blessed. Our soul is not of this world. She longs always what has to come - the invisible world. She feels it and already that she knows it is real. What ever thing we bought her wouldn't make her happy. She will always for something new. And every new thing will wear out and she will soon want another new thing. 

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, -Hebrews 12:28  Read More +

The nature of our relationship with others

        fasika    |    Mar. 17, 2014    


We cause the feeling of pleasure and pain to us and other people. Sometimes we get hurt knowingly or unknowingly but we are tied with each other by destiny. For this reason we have to know whom we are identified with and what we got to do with each other in order to utilize our God given talent effectively. 

 

That is our mission in life. We are born with a specific purpose and believe or not we cannot do anything without it. The tragedy of life is we will never know what it is and who it is that we are tied with until of course it will gently come to us with out even say hi and leave us with out even say bye.  Read More +

Did you remember when our soul was so desperate? That the devil catches her and there was no one to help her? But the Lord has heard her prayers. He snatched her from the mouth of the evil. The wicked swallowed her but the Lord breaks her bondage. 

 

Yes, our God is able . Yes, he is able. We couldn't still understand it. This is our miracle that the Lord has performed. Praise the Lord for all his mighty works. We will worship you for the rest of our lives. You are the one who does greatest miracles in our lives.  Read More +

The Memories of the Past

        tewodros    |    Mar. 12, 2014    



Revelation 21:4
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.

Dedicated to all who have lost their loved ones. May God strengthen you and keep you strong in the name of Jesus.

What has really happened in the past has already gone
Just a glimpse of it makes us sorrow and bitter in the heart
Some memories of it are unbelievable
We even ask how could that happen to us
Our heart cried early in the morning
The memory of the lose of the loved ones makes it to ache inside
Do not bother remembering the past on your own
Do not revise for your self what have happened in your life
Think of it only when the Lord promises have been fulfilled
Only then we will understand why bad things happen to us
We will be able give praise to almighty God
A reason to believe that his word is unbroken and his promise is everlasting
Don't ask why something bad happened in the past
Or if the same thing could happen in the future
All things have happened and will happen for a reason
Keep being encouraged by Holy Spirit that the future will be better
The future surely has the answer of all the mysteries in our lives
You have kept our mind and soul from the oppression of the wicked
We have been tested many times
The devil has caused a lot of trouble to make our soul fall from your grace
O Lord, we always seek your guidance
We come before your presence everyday and ask for your forgiveness
Our path is not perfect
Our ways are far from yours
Your wisdom and understanding have no measure under the earth or above the earth
Our impure thoughts and actions have caused as nothing but grief and regrets
But when guilt and condemnation kikes in, we turn our face to you
We beg for your mercy again and again
There is no grudge or anger we keep towards the other person
Even if there are many things we don't want to forgive and forget
We open our heart to you to heal it
Forgiveness takes time and its healing is gradual
We may not come to instant forgiveness imediately
Our dicission for forgiveness is instant after the hard work Holy Spirit ministered to us
But all the pain and misery that have accumulated through time need time to get away
But this doesn't necessarily mean we have to take longer time to respond with forgiveness
By the grace of God, we can be healed and never to worry about the past and the sufferings we have gone through
Love is kind and doesn't want his thing
Love is full of mercy and always forgives and forgets
Love never fails!

God is the Strength of our Soul

        fasika    |    Mar. 10, 2014    


      

This is the very moment of our lives to seek the face of God. We no longer control how things work around us. We are trying to figure out the direction of our lives. We feel so weak and afraid of the world. How are we going to continue like this? 

 

The Lord has prepared a great journey ahead of us. There is a huge cup of destiny we should drink in front of us. But how are we going to get there living a life of unrighteousness. May be this is the path the Lord used to prepare us for a better purpse. But nothing in us like the way of life we are living.  Read More +

Bad Relationship Ruins Everything

        tewodros    |    Mar. 6, 2014    



I didn't know till today how words come from someone have the power to conceive evil in to our body. Someone who is filled with evil thoughts and ideas; someone who transmits a negative statement contrary to the word of God has no shame in his/her face and he/she deliberately delivers the evil words with high level of perfection.  

A bad friendship with the wrong person will destroy the good character from us. If we see that we are inappropriately tied to the wrong person in any form of relationship, we don't have to be foolish and be destroyed with it. We must flee from it before the time comes we too will have corrupted character.&nb Read More +

The Grace of God

        tewodros    |    Mar. 6, 2014    


Under any circumstance or by any selection criteria we (those who have been saved by grace and saw the unbounded love of God through Christ) don't deserve to be the servant of the Lord. We don't deserve to be categorized under the group of righteous people who are servant of the most fearsome God. We were very stubborn in our ways and with wicked heart and didn't listen to God all the time. 

 

If there is a man who has tested the mercy of God by going to his sins over and over again, it is me. If there is any one out there that I know who has done many wrong things in life, it is most probably me. For every wrong thing I do, I don't have too much excuse but my anger in me was eating up my flesh and soul.  Read More +

The Prince of Sorrow

        tewodros    |    May. 9, 2014    


Once upon a time there was prince of a great city and he had a friend crow. They were very close friends and spent most of their time together. Wherever the prince went, the crow followed him. Their intimacy was like families. 

One day the prince decided to go a long way to another city. In his adventure, he took his favorite white horse, his huge sword, and some food and water that will last for the journey he planed ahead. 

Riding for a while in the dense forest, the prince got lost, while his crow was still hovering around the area from above. Finding all the possible ways, out of the forest, the prince finally got tired and decided to take a nap.&nb Read More +

God shaped Hole

I have heard a lot of seroms in my life. One truth strikes me and I believe it totally. There is a 'God shaped hole' in our lives that can only be satisfied by accepting Jesus Christ as our personal saviour.  Other things in life are important such as money and relationships. However, without Jesus in one's life there is no contentment.

Let’s say you have some unpleasant argument with your spouse and you feel discomfort in side and you want to go back to your previous state. Words cannot be unspoken. But feelings can be healed. 

Make sure in any kind of arguments, you are not saying what you don’t want to say that makes you regret. If you did not offend your spouse during your conversation, there will be a good chance that you will have emotional healing from the words of others. 

 

Rather than on focusing on the direct words that comes from your spouse, focus on the overall feelings and motive of your spouse. Don’t allow to develop a resentment and tendency to memorize the bad things that is spoken from your spouse.  Read More +

freedom from guilt

        Eskedar    |    May. 6, 2014    


One of the greatest things about being born again is the previlege of not living in guilt. I used to feel guilty about every mistake I made before I accepted  Jesus in my life. How bothersome it was and a great hindrance to my life. Oh how amazing it was ,I accepted Jesus and I was free from the burden of guilt.  It was astouding because it proved to me that Jesus was atually real. He washed -and still washes my sins away and gives me a clear conscience.

Christiantity does not give one a liscence to sin. Jesus does not want us to sin, yet  He forgives us when we do. The blood of  Jesus is powerful and it works. There is the conviciton of the Holy Spirit that directs us to the right way. However, there is no burden of sin in Christ Jesus. That is the beauty of Christiantly. Read More +

Fasika: We used to feel the guilt and condemnation when we didn?t do things the right way we knew. The law was the ultimate power that governs our way of life. When we come to Jesus, he gave us the Spirit of peace and love, Holy Spirit. And we no longer get troubled by every line of command found in the law. Instead Holy Spirit advice us to walk in love and accomplish the will of God in our life favored with grace and accompanied by his mercy and love. What a great privilege is it when the Spirit of the lord become our councilor and his right hand is with us to strength us when we become week. It is by his amazing grace we are able to walk in love with out the condemnation of sin found in the law.
 

Choosing Our Friends Wisely

        fasika    |    May. 5, 2014    


Some people are constantly trying to disrespect us and degrade our relationship with God. They can be a good instrument for the evil and to minimize one to one relationship with such kind of people could be one option until we become aware of what is really going on behind them.

Jesus said, "I am not praying for those who belong to the world."

I am praying for them, but not for those who belong to this world. - John 17-9

This shows how important we need to take our lives seriously concerning our relationship with God and not allowing evil to get a chance to separate us from our father.

Choose wisely what you LOVE. LOVE what you chose. Hate is not on the menu. But you have the right to choose your friends. Do not hate no one, not even your enemies. If you continue with that, you will find yourself full of worries and troubles. You got to say, "No, I am sorry I can't", sometim Read More +

Fasika: We behave and imitate what we listen/watch most of the time. Especially we tend to be more of our friends. Friends have the power to direct us in to the light or in to the path of darkness. Hence if friends have the power to shape what we are, then we need to be more careful when we choose our fiends. Thanks and May God bless u.
Tewodros: The lord doesn't want us to hurt our selves in having fellowship with bad people. Our Christianity is not measured based on how much we get hurt while we try to be friends with the world. In fact the word of God strictly stated that we cannot be friends with the world and with God at the same time. Friendship with the world is enmity with God!

The Sooner the Better

        fasika    |    May. 2, 2014    


The level of interest we want something determines how quick we will get it. Jesus obeyed his father fully and shortly he joined his father in heaven. We are here on earth for only one ultimate purpose that is to show that we really obey the father. If God is going to destroy today that we made yesterday, it means he is not interested on the art craft. Nor he is interested on the architecture or the sky scrapers we made.

 

That is why Jesus doesnt come here and be the best in everything. He has come to this earth with a very specific purpose that is to be slaughtered for the sake of every sinner. Jesus carried every sin every human being made before he is born or after and he take all of that and burn on the cross. There is a beauty with that that God has made for us. He made Jesus to carry all of our sins without even complaining. Read More +

eskedar: it is true the greatest thing God desires from us is Obedience. He is pleased by that more than anything.
Tewodros: It is still a great mystery for many what the Lord has done for us on the cross. Jesus had obeyed his father till death even if it is a death on the cross which was the most humiliating way of persecution and execution at the time. He did that to take the shame and death we have brought onto us by sinning against God. With his humiliation, he brought forth a victory for us so that we all may bring ourselves to the lord without the guilt of our sin. May the lord give his grace to obey him till the end! The mercy of the lord endures forever
 

prayer

        Eskedar    |    Apr. 30, 2014    


prayer is simply talking to God just as a person talks to his/her close friend. It does not have to be formal. i love this fact because I can share anything with God: God I am tired of such and such.. help me .God I need guidance, am struggling in this area etc. I got this right to talk to God through Jesus Christ. My faith through Jesus Christ gives me direct acess to God like it says in Ephesians. It is a wonderful previlege.  And when prayer gets answered, it is even more exciting. there is a  well known song" I am a freind of God, He calls me friend." it is pretty awesome when a human like me can be called a friend of The Most High God-God who is omnipresent omnipotent and much more.

Grace vs Self-righteousness

        tewodros    |    Apr. 29, 2014    


No matter who we are or where we come from, we are one way or the other subject to sin against the Lord. This is no matter how righteous we want to be to please our Lord with all our heart, our soul and our spirit.

But there is always one problem. That is the flesh always battle with the spirit and once in a while the spirit gives a way to the flesh. It is like two spirits living in side of us - one is a good one and the other is a bad one.

As long as they are in there the battle is always there.

But don't forget, who ever fights till the end will  win the battle. It is true that one has to give way to the other. One has to leave while one will continue to gr Read More +

Teddy: Our forefathers who led us in to faith by following the footsteps of Jesus themselves enriched our faith by living a Godly life. They inspired us to accomplish the will of God. They have been led and inspired by their forefathers as the Holy Spirit their strength and source of wisdom. They plead us to follow their footsteps and to do the same for others. Paul described himself as a person who has lost everything for the sake of the gospel of Jesus and he motivated us to look like him as he looked to be like Jesus.

The doctor advised the parents to institutionalize him so that they may not worry about him the rest of their lives and just go on with their lives.

However, he used to tell me about his friend who worked in another company.  That person was a Christian - and his life spoke it: he was kind, deligent a treated people under him with utmost respect and much more. What striked me was that the persons working with him and spoke well of him were not Chrstians. They were impressed by his life.

Fasika: I am always amazed how our action has greater significance than our words even though our words play a very significant role in our lives. Our actions do speak themselves. Our lord Jesus teaches us to bear fruits of the Spirit so that people can see and distinguish who we came from. If we are from the world, we bear fruits that will fade away soon. But if we are from above, we will bear fruit that is everlasting and can benefit many. This way the wisdom of God identifies us from the world and the world from us. Our action do speak on their own so let?s use it as a way to convey God?s love and everlasting compassion wherever we go and whatever we do. God bless you exceedingly above all measures in the name of Jesus. Amen!

How Deep is the Love and Mercy of God?

        Fasika    |    May. 15, 2017    


How magnificent and awesome God you are? I cannot stop writing the words of gratitude and all the feelings of my heart to you since you are closer to me than a mother to her child.

Your faithfulness stays with me and keeps me in the house of the Lord forever. Therefore, I sing of your love and forgiveness all the days of my life. Words are helpless when it comes to praising you, O Lord!

A Lesson from Jeremiah 45

        Tewodros    |    Mar. 20, 2017    


We need to be careful what we allow to come in to our heart to be totally blessed and touched with the love of our God. Otherwise it may be poison to our soul.

We can’t trust everything that looks like love and joy. This world can easily deceive us with glittering copper which we think as gold. Only God’s love is trustworthy. Don't open the door for other things. I know ministry can thoug sometimes and we might suffer a little bit.

But the Lord will heal our soul very quickly. If this world hates us and condemns us, our grief is endurable because as Christians we know our God will come soon. We will cry out to him and soon our soul gets healed. After all he is the creator, our God, righ Read More +

Success Criteria – Divine Struggle

        Tewodros    |    Mar. 19, 2017    



This is the time where everybody put you on test. You should fear nothing while on the mission to win souls for the Lord. The only thing you have to fear is God, as he is the only one with ultimate power. Fear the one who has both the power on your flesh and soul.

What is the key to winning souls? Putting yourself dead as a wheat seed. Only God will lift you up from there. You cannot win this war with your wisdom. The ruler of this world is your greatest enemy. He has the advantage in every way.

 Jesus advised,

“As you are going with your adversary to the magistrate, try hard to be reconciled to him on the way, or he may drag you off to the judge, and the Judge turns you over to the officer, and the officer throws you into prison. I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penn Read More +

God, Jesus Christ and Salvation

        Tewodros    |    Mar. 11, 2017    



God himself made a promise when this priest was appointed. But he did not make a promise like this when the other priests were appointed. The promise he made is, “I, the Lord, promise that you will be a priest forever! And I will never change my mind!”

This means that Jesus guarantees us a better agreement with God. There have been a lot of other priests, and all of them have died. But Jesus will never die, and so he will be a priest forever! He is forever able to save the people he leads to God, because he always lives to speak to God for them.

Jesus is the high priest we need. He is holy and innocent and faultless, and not at all like us sinners. Jesus is honored above all beings in heaven, and he is better than any other high priest. Jesus doesn’t need to offer sacrifices each day for his own sins and then for the sins of the people. He offered a sacrifice once for all, when he gave himself. The Law appoints priests who have weaknesses. But God’s promise, which came later than the Law, appoints his Son. And he is the perfect high priest forever. -Hebrews 7: Read More +

Lead by Example - Submitting to Each Other

        Tewodros    |    Feb. 14, 2017    


Ephesians 5:21 : Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is head of the wife, just as Christ is the head of the church, His body, of which He is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her to sanctify her, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to Himself as a glorious church, without stain or wrinkle or any such blemish, but holy and blamele Read More +

A Short Reminder of Love

        Tewodros    |    Jan. 2, 2017    


Love is a gift from God. Sometimes it has to be earned. Sometimes it has to be learned. Sometimes it has to be shared.

Love has a tremendous amount of positive energy. You can take this gift and use it as you want. Love is a temporary delegated power from God to you like money or authority.

But love is invisible and doesn't take any form by itself. We need to decide how to use it. It needs a great deal of responsibility.

If you don’t know how to use it, you might end up loosing it at all and cause a lot of damage to your relationship.

The Characteristics of The wisdom of God

        Tewodros    |    Dec. 27, 2016    


The wisdom of God is to save, protect and rescue from danger. It is given to us to safeguard us from the dangers of the world. It is also the only way of protection from the wicked. God has not given a spirit that will lead us in to sin and the snares of sin. He has given us His Spirit to identify the snares of the devil and indicate a way out of our troubles and pains.

The Wisdom of God is the Spirit of God. The Spirit of God gives wisdom for those who know and fear God. The Spirit helps us avoid traps if we live by his Word. It also gives the clear distinction between right and wrong so that we don’t waste our lives by following worthless deceptions of the devil. If we listen to his voice, He can guide us to safety and pea Read More +

Can Salvation be Lost?

        Fasika Gulilat    |    Jul. 14, 2016    


It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age, if they fall away, to be brought back to repentance, because to their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace.” Hebrew 6:4

The above scripture shows one can possibly lose his/her salvation. Salvation comes through believing Jesus but it is not a one-time act. It governs and defines how we should behave and act the rest of our lives. One can argue it is possible that a person might not be saved in the first place instead of saying he lost his salvation. In other words, it is easier to conclude that one salvation cannot be lost. It is easy to put the issue at the beginning of the foundation of one's Christianity that is one’s salvation rather than the type of life style one lea Read More +

God is all Powerful

        Tewodros    |    Apr. 25, 2016    


Then Job answered the LORD and said, "I know that You can do all things, And that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted. 'Who is this that hides counsel without knowledge?' "Therefore I have declared that which I did not understand, Things too wonderful for me, which I did not know." - Job 42:2 

Seeing God face to face, Job came to realize who God really is and what He can do in our lives. God is magnificent and omnipotent God. No one on earth can destroy the will of God in our lives. He alone created all. He cannot be restricted by anything.

No devil can defeat God's will. No one can compete with God and win. God gives his grace to the weak. God raises the helpless and honors the low spir Read More +

How much worth does your spouse has in your eyes?

        Tewodros    |    Apr. 23, 2016    


If you know that you have to pay a price for the safety of your spouse and comfort; If you know there is a sacrifice that you have to make for your spouse happiness and enjoyment; If you understand that your spouse has demanded love and respect from you;

How are you willing to address these issues to keep the fire of love keeps burning in your home?

Most of the issues with a marital relationship are based on the value of the relationship one has with his/her spouse. 

The value you give to your marriage determines the sacrifice you will pay to save the marriage when it is in jeopardy. It also determines how much sacrifice you pay to keep it safe and secure from the troubles of the wor Read More +

Eskinder: God is good
 

Worship only God

        Tewodros    |    Feb. 28, 2016    


And when the people saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in the speech of Lycaonia, The gods are come down to us in the likeness of men. And they called Barnabas, Jupiter; and Paul, Mercurius, because he was the chief speaker. Then the priest of Jupiter, which was before their city, brought oxen and garlands unto the gates, and would have done sacrifice with the people. 

Which when the apostles, Barnabas and Paul, heard of, they rent their clothes, and ran in among the people, crying out, And saying, Sirs, why do ye these things? We also are men of like passions with you, and preach unto you that ye should turn from these vanities unto the living God, which made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things that are therein: Who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways. Nevertheless he left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our heart with food and gladness. And with these sayings scarce restrained they the people, that they had not done sacrifice unto them. - Acts 14 Read More +

How God Called and Saved Abraham

        Tewodros    |    Feb. 28, 2016    


This is one of the most important concepts in the Bible and for many this has been a point of controversy. The reason that many find it difficult to believe that salvation is free is because we think salvation is something we earn. 

But, All we need to be saved is the right attitude to depend on the Lord for he has finished all that is required to be saved on that cross. Stephen summarized the Old Testament in just a few paragraphs as follows:

And he said, Men, brethren, and fathers, hearken; The God of glory appeared unto our father Abraham, when he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Charran, And said unto him, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and come into the land which I shall shew thee. Then came he out of the land of the Chaldaeans, and dwelt in Charran: and from thence, when his father was dead, he removed him into this land, wherein ye now dwell. And he gave him none inheritance in it, no, not so much as to set his foot on: yet he promised that he would give it to him for a possession, and to his seed after him, when as yet he had no child.  – Acts Read More +

God is Great - Job 33:41

        Tewodros    |    Sep. 22, 2014    


Job 33 - God is greater than any human.  So why do you challenge God to answer you? God speaks in different ways, and we don’t always recognize his voice. Sometimes in the night, he uses terrifying dreams to give us warnings.

God does this to make us turn from sin and pride and to protect us from being swept away to the world of the dead. Sometimes we are punished with a serious illness and aching joints. Merely the thought of our favorite food makes our stomachs sick, and we become so skinny that our bones stick out.

We feel death and the grave taking us in their grip. One of a thousand angels then comes to our rescue by saying we are innocent. The angel shows kindness, commanding death to release us, because the price was pa Read More +

Trust, Relationships and Dating

        Tewodros    |    Sep. 19, 2014    



How much trust should we put in a relationship

One of the issues we face while dating is trust. No one can form a strong relationship without trust. But the thing is no one is worthy of your trust while dating.

And they say there is no love and relationship without trust. May be that is how life should be or maybe not. We (Adam and Eve) started our journey with unfaithfulness. Human beings have a long history of unfaithfulness to the Lord. As long as we live in the flesh, we are unworthy of trust. The flesh with out the Spirit is the punishment for our evil act against the will of God in our liv Read More +

God Makes the Best out of our Lives

        Tewodros    |    Sep. 18, 2014    



The Lord is in the process of making the best out of our lives as if you make wine out of grape. He is allowing us to pass through a very hard time now but in the end everything will be nice. He kept our spirit to be fermented and rebuilding us every day for us to smell good and to produce something that smells good that will change people lives. But still some of us or not ready yet. He made our lives to be a grape as he made many with his beautiful hands. 

But one thing I know, he doesn’t want us to be revealed just as grape. He wants to make us in to wine. He put us in to one of his pots and we want to be there until he is finished. In the end I know we will be as sweet as the finest wine in the whole world. This idea goes with also the idea of purifying a gold.&nb Read More +

Even though all the things that used to make us happy are no more pleasant to us,

Even though all we have worked for and all we have accumulated over the years seem to be gone,

Even though when all the trust and faithfulness we believe we have built over the years are simply shattered,

Even though the world rewards us with more disappointment and more fear instead of encouragement to do and accomplish mo Read More +

Unfailing Love

        Tewodros    |    Sep. 16, 2014    


There was a time we all once went to a brink of losing hope and courage at one point of our lives in the past. May be there are some who are passing through such kind of struggle in their lives right now. It is my purpose and duty to remind you about the love of God and that his love for us is never changing. We are here to kind of encourage one another for the love of God is unfailing like the mother’s love and beyond that. You might say in your heart:

 (Lamentations of our Soul )
"I come to the point where I am losing all the hope. My feet are stumbled and my body reaches to fall. I don’t know what to do next. God, you are my only hope I have got in my life. You know how I come to face unbearable challenges that I have right now. If I only know how, at least we will make sure nobody else will be ever fall in the same traps I already fall in my life.”

Yes our Lord, we don’t exactly know how we came to a point of desperation. We know a little and remember a little about the past. Our memory is short and we can’t exhaustively mention all that has happened in our liv Read More +

How to manage Temptations - Part 2

        Tewodros    |    Sep. 12, 2014    


2. The power of the will

The devil literally asked Jesus to jump out of the temple quoting from the word of God to convince him about this insane act. As Christians we should align our will with the will of the father. He told him that it is written in the Bible that no man shall tempt the Lord our God.

Deuteronomy 6:16: You shall not put the Lord your God to the test, as you tested Him at Massah. 

This is one of the principles of God that we just ignore. But the fact that we ignore his principles doesn’t mean they don’t work. Take for example the law of gravity. You can’t beat gravity. As there are natural laws, there are God’s laws that we must obey no matter wh Read More +

How to manage temptations?

        Tewodros    |    Sep. 11, 2014    



Do you ever ask your selves what are the major causes of temptations? Do you ever wonder what brings the temptations to us? Do you think how temptations come and even why they come to us? Do you ever wanted to triumph over your temptation? 

The Bible teaches us how to manage temptations on Matthew 4:4. According to the Bible Jesus was tempted by the devil three times. And he won his battles basically by sticking to the truth according to the word of God. 

The Bible also teaches us as soon as he finished his battles with the devil in the wilderness, he came back mighty in the spirit full of the Spirit of God that all of his miracles and teaching was derived fr Read More +

The Effects of Divorce on Children

        Tewodros    |    Sep. 10, 2014    



The effects of divorce on children

1. Children Trust is broken:

Children always carry with them a broken heart where ever they go that will affect them emotionally, psychologically, and socially, spiritually and many more. They would not be able to see the world with love as they used but with the eyes of hatred and bitterness since that is what they learn from their parents.

Most of the things we show to our children, they behave and act according to how we behave. They tend to imitate what we do in the real world.

If we are showing them to break a covenant that we make with our spouse, they tend to do the same thing unless the power of the Lord interferes in their li Read More +

The Consequences of Divorce

        Tewodros    |    Sep. 9, 2014    


In my opinion divorce is the most destructive force that can scatter families like dust. I would say many wouldn’t dare to walk in that road if they can realize the worst thing that can happen to their family if they chose to divorce their spouse.

The Bible tells us that God hates divorce for the very reason that divorce causes irreversible damage to our being and the wellness of the ones we love most. Among many other reasons that divorce brings to our family I would like to mention few of the consequences of divorce.

Before that I would like you take this as my personal opinion that the Lord teaches me in this short period of my life. This is not by any means the final point where it should end. I would like to hear also your opinion so that we can grow together in the body of Jesus Chri Read More +

The Bible is not Fiction Part 2

        Tewodros    |    Sep. 8, 2014    


If you don’t expose yourself in to the teaching of Godly instructions that are based on the Bible, you will not have the ability to conceive faith on the Lord.

The last and most important thing is don’t step away from the will of God for your life because something bad has happened to you or someone you love. 

The Bible doesn’t promise you that you will not be persecuted and pass though extreme hardship in this life. But it specifically instructs you and me to be faithful even up to death.

Yes bad things can happen to good people but the Lord will change everything for the better. Cannot blame everything on God. We need to take responsibility and it is not to the best of his interest that we suffer Read More +

Spiritual Battle: Fight and win in the Spirit

This is continuation from the blog "Spiritual Battle" 

   

The fact that you can easily defend yourself from the devil attack is not good enough in the kingdom of God. In this kingdom, the children of God are not about to sit down and watch while others are going to hell and do nothing.

By all means faith guides us well in times of trouble. But our feelings sometimes will eventually drive us crazy if we don't control them. Do you know how many times we are tempted to do something or to think about something that will eventually cause damage to our relationship with God? 

 

Feelings, thoughts, sensation and beauty are all the expression of our physical body and mind. And we know better than to rely on something like physical because it will change. The world and all its burnning sensations will pass. The Spirit is something everlasting. In this short life I have lived, I have been through a lot of issues but something is always true that everything doesn't stay the same.  Read More +

Power through Obedience

        tewodros    |    Feb. 27, 2014    


Ephesians 1:17 -

I ask the glorious Father and God of our Lord Jesus Christ to give you his Spirit. The Spirit will make you wise and let you understand what it means to know God. My prayer is that light will flood your hearts and that you will understand the hope that was given to you when God chose you. Then you will discover the glorious blessings that will be yours together with all of God's people. I want you to know about the great and mighty power that God has for us followers. It is the same wonderful power he used when he raised Christ from death and let him sit at his right side in heaven. There Christ rules over all forces, authorities, powers, and rulers.

He rules over all beings in this world and will rule in the future world as well. God has put all things under the power of Christ, and for the good of the church he has made him the head of everything. The church is Christ's body and is filled with Christ who completely fills everythi Read More +

You are my God in whom I trust most

        tewodros    |    Feb. 26, 2014    


In those days when we feel weak and tired, we may feel that we are the only ones thinking and worrying about others. Well, I guess that is not true. I believe there is someone for us. I believe that our family prays for us.

But at this defining moment of our lives that we need some kind of motivation and support, we may feel like we are left alone. The Spirit of the Lord always visits us at down and looks for us at dusk. Without him, we are like dust that is waiting to blow away by the wind and just disappear.

Respectful honesty and truthfulness

        tewodros    |    Feb. 25, 2014    


 

We share our problems and adversaries to the one we love most. We even share our deep secrets to the one we trust. By doing so people tend to get hurt every now and then because the person who knows your secret might use it in the negative impression and break your heart. There is always a risk when someone tells his private life to his friend.

How about husband and wife? How about them? Do they have to fear each other and don't tell each other secrets. I think when it comes to your partner in life, your wedded husband or wife, the story is different. Read More +

Change through Christ

        tewodros    |    Feb. 23, 2014    


This is the time that we all want to change. A change that will generate more happiness as we are very close to our purpose. A change that will compensate all the loss and failures happened before. A change that will completely turn around our lives. A change if we have to decide and be willing to take it  

 Would you change? What are you waiting my dear?  Your love is already at the gate. Open it for him and dine together. Open up the gates of your heart to Jesus. He is more than happy to stay with you as long as we live and forever more. But our Lord we don't even know our passion in life without y Read More +

What does it take for us to be humble?

        tewodros    |    Feb. 22, 2014    


May be a little bit of hardship 
A little bit walk the walk and talk the talk with God 
All alone in the Desert 
May be disgrace and discomfort 
With a little discouragement and disappointment 
A little bit hopelessness and humiliation 
In all of these, the Lord will not destroy unless he wants to rebuild  
He is the creator and the potter 
We are the works of his hands, the pots 
Whenever he feels like to rebuild us 
We have to pass through all forms of tribulation 
Remember that in all of this you can learn how to be humble 
This is if we can learn to take our adversaries to the Lord 
And if we don't revenge our enemies by ourselves 
If you can really forgive and forget 
The bible tells us Mosses was one of the humblest servant of the Lord 
In his service to the Lord, he always want to sacrifice him self not others 
Even in their sins he challenge God 
He showed a kind heart towards them 
He doesn't want one man to get lost in the desert 
Even if they do lost in the wilderness because of their sins 
Here is a little excerpt form Exodus 32:32 
 

The next day Moses said to the people, "You have committed a great sin. But now I will go up to the Lord; perhaps I can make atonement for your sin." So Moses went back to the Lord and said, "Oh, what a great sin these people have committed! They have made themselves Gods of gold. But now, please forgive their sin but if not, then blot me out of the book you have written." The Lord replied to Moses, "Whoever has sinned against me I will blot out of my book Now go, lead the people to the place I spoke of, and my angel will go before you However, when the time comes for me to punish, I will punish them for their sin. And the Lord struck the people with a plague because of what they did with the calf Aaron had made.


But how did Moses become so humble like that
So passionate like that
Is it how he was from the beginning?
No. In fact he was some how judgmental and emotional guy
So what teaches him passion and forgiveness is the course of life he lived
The Lord doesn't want to use him when he was strong and youth
He waited until he no longer speak on his own accord
He no longer does things on his own    Read More +

The Urge of Minstry

        tewodros    |    Feb. 20, 2014    


We all wanted to minster the Lord one way or the other. Being the servant of the most holy and fearsome God is the greatest privilege of all privileges. No one ever has fully told us about God. But his son has revealed his true nature and good will that he has for his people.  

 

There are different kinds of ministry. The most common forms of ministry are preaching, teaching, worshiping, praying, interceding, fasting, teaching children through Sunday school, and cleaning the house of God. Many have been chosen to be quires, ushers, pastors, bishops, teachers, preachers, disciples, singers, missionaries, etc.  Read More +

Marriage and Relationship

        tewodros    |    Feb. 18, 2014    


Marriage, between one man and one woman, should not be underestimated nor should it be taken for granted. The idea of two people coming to share life together is holy and should be taken as one of the most wonderful gift God has given to human beings. Any two ordinary people may not be able to live up to all the expectations by themselves but when the Spirit of God comes in between, they can.

Two bodies can be joined together. Two or more people can join in a common purpose using their mind to work on a common problem and their physical body and physical mind to solve it. But to join two souls together is what God can only do. That is in body, spirit and mind. I believe that every human being represents all these three basic components. We all have a physical body which latter takes its divine form. We also carry the spirit that we are made of. We have the mind that is able to generate intellectual ideas that will make us thoughtful. Read More +

Allison Wittwer: Fantastic reminder of how a marriage should be, especially between two Christians. I am sharing this with my friends. Thank you.
Raynard shellow: As I eat my breakfast and get ready to pray with my wife over the phone, I admire and respect the way you wrote on this topic. Besides the basics of praying together and the reading of God's word, I stay connected to marriage resources to help us both grow together and then share with others to be a encouragement by leading by example.My family is planning a reunion this year and I spoke to my wife about whats been on my heart since we got married soon to be 5 years ago. A marriage retreat to keep out marriage strong and healthy.Notice I didnt say the word sucessful like something on a "to do list' lol be blessed and thank you
Tewodros Kebde: It is a great privilege to have a family that endures the challenges that life had to offer over the years. When God gives, he gives the best and I believe the fact that we are blessed with a great family is one instance of God's great gift. God bless you all for sharing your own life experience to this blog and may God bless your family in abundance in Jesus name. Amen.
K Reynolds: More than 30 years ago, at the age of 20, my husband and I said our marriage vows, never dreaming that the words in sickness and in health would take on a special significance for us. While we have always had a very strong and good marriage, the fires of the past few years have proved it. It is easy to talk about love and marriage when there is no "fire" going on in your life. There is a reason why so many marriages which seemed so strong begin to fall apart as people reach their 40's, 50's and 60's. They simply cannot endure the fires of age and disease. I have seen a number of people who go through cancer treatment basically alone because their spouse can't "handle it" and it is heart-breaking. I am very glad that did not happen in my case. Even after the brain stuff occurred, there has never been any sort of blame. It is not "my" problem... it is ours and with God's help, we get through it all together. This is the way it should be. This is the way it must be in order for a marriage to truly endure. Staying "together" does not mean you have a marriage and I am soooooo thankful that I do! Blessings!
Tyler Boettcher : WOW I couldn't stop reading this blog! I clicked on the "Random Blog" button and this is the one that came up and I actually stopped what I was doing on Facebook and read this because it just drew me right in! Thank you and GOD Bless you tedygashaw for taking the time to write this! I'm a twenty two year old and I know that it's in my future to get married one day because I know that I'm meant to be alone for the rest of my life! I just have to be patient and wait for God to bring her into my life! I want to have God at the center of my marriage since he's been giving me many BLESSINGS and guiding me my entire even before I became Born-Again last year in March. Since my life has improved significantly! You were right on when you brought up trust which I think is essential in a marriage. Also the jealousy is also something that I'm very guilty of because I used to envy what other people had that I didn't have when I growing up. Like my brother who could get any girl he wanted or a classmate that got to go Europe for Spring Break, but now that I'm Born-Again I realize how pointless jealousy is and that this world is temporary. Now days I'm blessed to even be alive and have what I have right now because after studying history for so many years and learning about how tough other people have it around the world and even in America, I felt guilty for being jealous all of those years. Now I'm thankful for everything that I have such as my family and friends that love me! I know that God was and still is protecting from all of the material things of this world so I didn't grow up to be greedy and self-centered. Thank you again for writing this GREAT Blog, Jesus loves you! Tyler
tewodros kebede: Thanks All!
 

Love

        Eskedar    |    Apr. 24, 2014    


I have read the  New Testament three times and have been struck by by many themes. One of them stands out - love.  Of all the things God requires from us,  love is the most important one. He wants us Chrstians to love Him with all our mind,heart and soul; and to love our neighbors as ourselves. From my point of view, if we love Him we wll be passionate to please Him. That is what God wants, a heart after Him. My prayer is " God I want to please You desperately but I find myself short of the power to do so. Please give me Your grace and power to live  Your way of life.  Then  'I look upon Jesus' and become reminded on Gospel of John:Chpater 1 verse 14," tsega ena ewneten temolto begna adere". Jesus came to enable me to live for God by living inside me through Holy Spirit. This rejoices my heart because Jesus is not judgmental yet compassionate. He is ready to give me grace when I need it Read More +

Easter

        tewodros    |    Apr. 23, 2014    


On the day of Easter God did some thing that the world had never seen before. He did some thing that no one has fully understood and has not been told to its fullness. On this very day a son was given for us as a ransom for our transgression and our sins. 

 

Our sins have caused us death and God loved us so much he punished his son for us. It is impossible for God to break his principles and values. It is also impossible for us to sin and not paid the price of our sins

Holy Spirit is the source of life

        tewodros    |    Apr. 21, 2014    


Where ever there is the presence of the Holy Spirit, that is our safest place in terms of living a life up to the standard of the word of God. No matter where you are and no matter what you are doing, you can just call him and feel blessed. Holy Spirit will never leave you nor forsake you. He will strength you when you feel week and helpless. When you lay down in pain and agony, he will make you bear your pain. No one on earth will understand what you are going through in life than him. Not even you family not even you closest friend. He is you closest friend. He understands everything. He is on your side.  Read More +

Love is the way of the disciple of Christ

        tewodros    |    Apr. 18, 2014    


The cause of many arguments and troubles cannot be mentioned exhaustively. While we live in this fallen city, we are tempted to do sin no matter how good we look like from outside. There is always a limitation for our kindness and love. That is why families broke and children are growing without parents.

 

That is why prisons are full of parents that should have spent their lives serving their family than prison. As human being all we have to know is we are susceptible to violence, pain, misery and temptation. What we need to know is our actions driven by anger instead of love would bring us a lot of pain and misery. We need to understand that when we are angry we do things that we will regret latter.

Sinful Desire

        tewodros    |    Apr. 17, 2014    


When one convinces himself in following his own selfish desire and seeks one's own pleasure without the permission of the Holy Spirit, he/she couldn’t remember anything at time of trouble. The thought of sinful desire is an idea overwriting and overwhelming the good ones from the Spirit of God. Such kind of person has no common sense and the sense of self-control. Anger, disappointment, fear and hate can steer this up from the inside. Faith, hope and love are its enemies. 

At the point one left with this flamable, agitated, aggravated, serious, all emotional, physical, uncontrollable, unthinkable feeling, lust and selfish sexual desire that couldn’t  stop until somebody do something about it. The book of proverb describes such kind of person as someone who lacks wisdom.    &nb Read More +

Not dictated by Emotions and Feeling

        Eskedar    |    Apr. 16, 2014    


The Word of God is really amazing. The more you hear it, the more your  mind is filled with the Word. This percludes one to do things out of emotion or feelings. From experience, I have found myself doing things out of my feelings and later regeret it. It still amazes me how following your emotions or feelings result is total waste of time, money and dissatisfation. So, as the common saying goes'What would Jesus do?', I want to stop and think this question for every decsion I make. But in all this and above all ,I believe it is only Jesus who can give me the grace and power to follow the Word -and not my feelings or emotions. Read More +

Tewodros: As Christians we may be tempted to be led by our feelings and emotions. The very nature of our flesh has a great sensation to the world which is sinful by nature. On the other hand our faith deeply rooted on the living word of God and led by the Holy Spirit can protect us from many obstacles in life that could hinder our relationship to God through Jesus Christ. God bless you for your wonderful blog.
 

Protect what you value most

        tewodros    |    Apr. 15, 2014    


There are some things in life that cannot be replaced. Somethings can be fixed easily but somethings do not. To live the most of life and be happy, we need to know the three most important things we need to protect and serve in respective order. Whether it is our relationship with God, family, parents, ministry, profession, career, education, business, investment and others, all these have a significant value and order in our lives. 

When resources are scarce, we need to retreat back to at least two most important things in life; Faithful relationship to God and love and kindness to others especially who are very close to us, children, wife, husband, mom and dad who have no one but us to support them. This will create peace and security in us and the lives of others.&nb Read More +

Love Management Part 4

        tewodros    |    Apr. 14, 2014    


Caring for Loved Ones:

We need to be close to God as much as we can. That will make us learn the tricks of the enemy real quick. What it takes us a month or one year, we can learn it in one day. How does the enemy win and take our loved ones in to this illusion world? The main problem we have is we tend to care less and criticize more. In this world, we shouldn't criticize no one, specially those who are in need of our love and support.

Now we nag, we criticize and we judge our loved ones. Our loved ones need to know we care for them. And we are on their side no matter what happens. We need to put our time, energy and resource on them. That is how we are to God. He never takes his eyes of us. And we can understand that easily. We can get comfort and security in this way. He makes us first because he knows there is always someone to distract Read More +

Love Management Part 3

        tewodros    |    Apr. 11, 2014    


Love turn into Hate: 

Love can be changed to complete hate.  A thief never comes from far. The people who hurt us most are the ones that love us most. If relationship is not treated as it should be, it is dangerous. We will always be amazed how everything changes in this world. But most of all, we will be amazed how love changes in to hate.  

The level one can be so much in hate is the same level one can love. We didn't realized such kind of things in life. But they are still there happening to someone somewhere right now. And we need to be aware of it today just to make sure it will not happen to us.

Love is the main working domain of the wicked. The devil doesn't want to spend his time at the house where people are fighting. They are already in to his plan. But wherever there is true love, resistance is always there. And the only way to keep our loved ones together is to use God's wisd Read More +

Be like Little Children

        Tewodros    |    Feb. 27, 2016    




Matthew 18:3 And He called a child to Himself and set him before them, and said, "Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. "Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Be like Little Children:

This is the key to enter the kingdom of God, but how to be like little Children?

We are grown-ups now but what does the Lord mean by that?

In my opinion, It means:

1. Love like crazy

What a privilege to be loved and accompanied by children since they don’t know how to do that wrongly. On the other hand, we know how to fake it. We know how to smile without loving someone. Children’s love is indeed pure and not diluted with fake body language

2. Forgive like everything a person does harm to you is like a scratch.

Don’t try to conceive and implement evil things on those who have done you wrong. Do not go to war with your enemy. Treat your enemy like your friend. That is what children do. They don’t store in their mind how to attack someone who is not nice to them. If someone treats them badly, they will forgive him after a while. They just don’t have the capacity to do that.

3. Humble yourself like you are the dumbest and lowest of all.[But you are not that at all]

Children don’t treat other children with disrespect. They don’t consider themselves as one of the brilliant people in the world and think others like crazy. They love dearly. They are polite and sincere.

4. Sharing out of Love

Children give out of love not out of a reason to be respected or to be famous. They don’t give to enslave someone out of a huge amount of debt this person carries and cannot repay.

The children don’t share their things because they want to enter the kingdom of God. They share because they love.

5. Purity from immorality: I don’t know how but we grownups are always under an attack from the devil to exercise immorality. This is like our main weakness. Whether it is too lose our integrity through backbiting or whether it is that uncontrollable addictive way of life we are doing, we are always short of the glory of God.

6. Don’t grumble

I have never seen a child cursing the Lord for bad things happened in their lives

I know when they are disciplined, they may feel bad, but they always fall back to love their parents no matter what happened.

7. Always thankful

8. Always forgiving

9. Always cherish

10. Never count or recall one’s wrong doings

11. Hopeful for the future

12. Don’t worry about the future.

They don’t worry about what they eat and drink. They don’t worry about which schools they will attend. But we parents do that for them. We worry for them. They don’t worry for them. It is not in their mindset at all.

13. Love gently. Life is short.

Huge gently. Talk gently. Show your love and don’t hide it.

14. Honor others more than themselves

15. Never hesitate to ask forgiveness when they do wrong. As they honestly embrace others when others confess, they also truthfully confess their wrong actions and don’t say, “Let me pray first”

16. Be honest

Have you ever seen a child who fakes his anger or happiness? Have you ever watched a child hiding all his feelings and protruding fake ones? Children are indeed honest and we know it and like it when someone is honest with you. If we like them to be honest, we have to be honest too with others with God.


17. Become the source of laughter and joy for yourselves and for others

18. Be helpful

19. Be inspirational.< Read More +

Salvation and the Parable of the Debter and his Master

        Tewodros    |    Feb. 27, 2016    





Matthew 18:21-35: Then Peter came to him and asked, “Lord, how often should I forgive someone who sins against me? Seven times?”

“No, not seven times,” Jesus replied, “but seventy times seven!

“Therefore, the Kingdom of Heaven can be compared to a king who decided to bring his accounts up to date with servants who had borrowed money from him. 24 In the process, one of his debtors was brought in who owed him millions of dollars. He couldn’t pay, so his master ordered that he be sold—along with his wife, his children, and everything he owned—to pay the debt. “But the man fell down before his master and begged him, ‘Please, be patient with me, and I will pay it all.’ 27 Then his master was filled with pity for him, and he released him and forgave his debt.

The Qualities of a Leader: according to the book of Nehemiah

Nehemiah 1:4  They said to me, “Those who survived the exile and are back in the province are in great trouble and disgrace. The wall of Jerusalem is broken down, and its gates have been burned with fire.” When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven. Then I said:


“Lord, the God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments, let your ear be attentive and your eyes open to hear the prayer your servant is praying before you day and night for your servants, the people of Israel.&nb Read More +

The Bread of Life

        Tewodros    |    Feb. 15, 2016    



John 6:35And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. But I said unto you, that ye also have seen me, and believe not. All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.



Jesus is the Living Bread of LIfe that we eat and shall not starve no more. He satisfies our innermost cravings and desires. There is nothing we want in his presence. His Spirit gives all we need and all we want.


People who don’t have this revelation do all manner of things to satisfy themselves with all the garbage and the non-sense the world can offer.


Jesus is the only way to quench the thirst of our soul. The desire of our soul has been always for the one who he created her, our God.


But since we don’t know what we want, we find peace and joy and happiness in the wrong places. We think we can find this joy through fame, drugs, sex, alcohol, etc.


But after we west everything like that disobedient son mentioned in Mathew, we only realize that all our youth and money are wasted looking for the right thing in the wrong places.


Only God can give true joy since he is the source of life.


The best part is once we know him and start to follow him, he will never cast us down or abandon us like children without fathers.


If you are wondering what could be the will of God in your life, the answer is it is that you may find Jesus and believe in him and have everlasting LIFE through him.


Jesus is indeed the bread of life that we need daily to eat and drink and satisfy our soul from the everlasting Love of God through his son Jesus Christ. Read More +

The Power of Prayer

        Tewodros    |    Feb. 8, 2016    



Why Prayer?

So Peter was kept in prison, but the church was earnestly praying to God for him. -Acts 12:5

From this chapter, we learn that prayer is the most fearsome weapon for the Believer against the works of the enemy. 

The same ruler that had ordered the killing of disciple James and succeeded, also ordered to do the same thing with Peter. But by the strong prayer of the church, we all know he has been miraculously saved by the Angel of God.

Prayer is a powerful tool for us to withstand every evil in our lives. Prayer in faith and faith alone can move mountains and quench the blazing heat of fire and destroy the power of a storm. < Read More +

How to Deal with Challenges in leadership?

        Tewodros    |    Aug. 10, 2015    


The leadership challenges we face every day are very crucial in dictating our lives and the lives of our loved ones. I would like to highlight the importance of leadership and the significance of dealing with the challenges we face during leadership.

We become so much frustrated after we tried all we can do and there is nothing we can do any more to change our situation. We get very much disappointed and they beat us very good and we can’t even continue to lead in that area.

As a worker we wanted to see the fruits of our labor and we tend to get nothing. Our problems deeply rooted in our weak emotions and the backgrounds of the other person. Change is not easy and it takes quite some time in some cases. Even the word of God says if we don’t give up so quickly, we will eat the fruit in due ti Read More +

Challenges in marriage

        Tewodros    |    Aug. 10, 2015    


Challenges at home are sometimes different than we face from outside.  We usually don’t take an issue in a relationship that is from outside of our house very seriously.  

People may tend to make us feel bad and disturb our feelings, but yet they are not always successful. If we noticed we do not have the option to create the same feeling inside the house as we do outside.  

I also noticed that some people if you see them outside the house and if you see them inside the house, they are two different persons.  

Why is this all happening to us sometimes? Is it because we don’t love the people outside the house as we love very much our own family. We all know we got so emotional when someone touch the one we love mo Read More +

What is the cause of homosexuality?

        Tewodros    |    Jul. 15, 2015    


I believe homosexual behavior can be conceived (with a lie from the devil) and cultivated in the heart of a person where there is no deep revelation about the fear of God. 

The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. If God doesn’t want you to start a relationship with the wrong gender, then don’t. The fact that one has been sexually abused and tortured by some evil person doesn’t mean he/she should go for homosexuality.  But I strongly believe that when someone is sexually violated by a spiritually possessed person, there is a good opportunity for the spirit of the wicked to possess this person. 

In other words, homosexuality can be transmitted through sexual contact with other same sax homosexual person with or without consent.  Our fight and main struggle is not with flesh, but against evil principalities who can ruin our lives in one incident. That is why we need to cover ourselves and our family with the blood of Jesus every day before we do anything.&nb Read More +

What are the consequences of homosexuality?

        Tewodros    |    Jul. 15, 2015    


Homosexual behavior or act is considered as a sin in the Bible.  

The Bible teaches us for a man to take one woman as a wife and woman to take one man as a husband. I believe the nature of a man is to be with a woman and not with another man and a woman with a man. Only a woman can complete and fulfill the desires of a man and vice versa. It is all about all kinds of human, emotional, sexual, psychological, physical, and spiritual compatibility and much more.  

One of the wonders of God is, how God makes a woman out of a man so that the two shall be inseparable. The two cannot function without each other in a marital relationship. You cannot change that principle. It will be absolutely impossible for a man to fulfill the marital requirement of another man instead of a woman. &nb Read More +

Personal Testimony

        Tewodros    |    Jul. 6, 2015    


In this personal testimony, I would like to share a few of my personal experiences with Jesus and how Jesus never leaves me nor forsakes me when I was in trouble. It is a living testament, which is written on my heart by the power of the Holy Spirit and the grace of my God and my Lord Jesus Christ. This can be taken as evidence that he can be trusted at all times. He came at last when everything I had and everything I could possibly think of was gone.  But He was never late. He is on time all the time. Here I will mention a few instances of how He came late and resurrected my dead life with his miracles.

1. When I was close to death because of my illness at 8th grade, he healed my full body and gives me a second chance. &nb Read More +

Personal Background

        Tewodros    |    Jul. 5, 2015    


I believe these pieces of writings will be a lesson to me and for those who will get the chance to read my story. I will incorporate God’s word in it. I hope it will be a book of wisdom not critics.   

I was born in a small town in Ethiopia, Africa. I was raised by two hard working parents who want nothing but the best for their children. I was the first born and I have two sisters and one brother in my family.   

My parents got divorced when I was 5 years old. At first I got the chance to live with my father, but then later I moved to my mom and my little sister when my father married his second wife after 5 years my parents got divorced. &nb Read More +

Marriage Prayer

        Fasika    |    Jun. 25, 2015    


It is the will of our father to find the right marriage partner in life. It is also his will to be blessed and bless other marriages. It is what he wants to do for his children. For his will is full of peace, joy and kindness. When the Lord blessed us with a companion in life, we need to ask him what are the things he wants to accomplish in our marriage. We need to receive a vision about our marriage. We need to pray:

Lord, you have considered and blessed your servant with a blessed wife/husband and a happy marriage. What is it that you want me to do that will eventually make you happy?

Tell us the work to be done. Enlighten us and give us dreams and visions. You have now two individuals who have separated themselves for you. Your kingdom has to be preached for the lives to come. Your love has to be told for generations.&nb Read More +

Love Management Part 2

        tewodros    |    Apr. 10, 2014    


 

Micah 7:5 -  
Don't trust anyone, not even your best friend, 
And be careful what you say to the one you love. 
Sons refuse to respect their own fathers, 
Daughters rebel against their own mothers, 
And daughters-in-law despise their mothers-in-law. 
Your family is now your enemy. 
But I trust the Lord God to save me, 
And I will wait for him to answer my prayer.

This is how the word of God describes how difficult life could be 
In the last days Jesus teaches that a brother will rise against his brother 
Knowingly or unknowingly we become enemies of each other 
They will do anything that seems to solve their problem.
Sometimes we say in agony and bitterness of our soul,  
How can I become this much ignorant? 
Due to my sufferings I even forget to eat 
What has made me laugh before is not funny anymore 
The enemy is getting bigger everyday 
How can a person like me fight with that on my own strength? 
As for me my lamentations are my dinner 
My tears are my drinks 
I wait for God no matter how long it takes 
In my problems I will wait for him 
My own family has turned their backs on me 
I don't know why 
Now who can be trusted? 
Whom shall I believe?
Then we lift our hands to God and pray,
Therefore I put my trust in the Lord
Where can I rest before coming to you Lord
My own house becomes my distress
Because of what is happening there
The enemy gathered around me and waited for my soul
They chocked me till my breath is finished in me
I know God, you see all that
I am calling your name and I know you will answer me
You will answer by fire and storm
I know you patiently wait until what you planned about them reaches
You don't leave your servant in the grave
I believe you Lord, Therefore I put my trust in you
I will make my enemies testify about my integrity
I will not envy their ways, rather I will follow you, my God
In everything they do to me, I will get revelation from you
The more they fight with me, I will be listening to your word more
This is one thing I will do, and I will do it for you, with you and by you
Weakness is our major enemy
Immaturity is our foe
Fear is what we need to fight every day
In revelation of God’s wisdom, we will walk in peace
Daily, we will seek his guidance
Surely, we will find God’s will
Honestly, we will serve him
With a brave heart, we will follow him
Whatever it is, we will not get out of his ways
However long it takes, we will see what we have lived to see
They say, "You will never learn how to pray till your child start driving"
We were weak and caught only by our own ways
Our own plans and motives become a deadly snare to our feet
Now when trouble comes day by day
And when we have no options but to turn our face to God, we begged him for guidance
Some of us are with so many burden and heavy responsibilities
Where shall we go in times of troubles?
All our instincts tells us we have to come to God
No one help us in times of trouble.
In fact they want us to fall and never to rise again

Love Management Part 1

        tewodros    |    Apr. 8, 2014    


In this series we will learn about how it is difficult to live life with opposition from our own friends and family. Sometimes our own flesh and blood can become dangerous and unknowingly fight against us that will have a huge impact on our relationship to God through Christ.  

We will also learn that no matter what they do on to us, they do not mean to hurt us and that only because they loved us inside and they don't know how. The Bible says: Due to lack of knowledge the people have perished.

It is good to know everything that God wants us to know. We don't say, I didn t know about that. I wish I did. The wisdom of this world is far from God's eternal plan. We don't see as they see. Even we don't see as God see unless the Holy Spirit revealed it to us. How does it feel to be alone?&nb Read More +

Accountability

        Eskedar    |    Apr. 7, 2014    


I believe accoutability is very  crucial in a Christians life.  When one is surounded - so to speak- with famliy and friends the person's life is out in the open;and he/she becomes cautious in his/her Christian life. This will in turn help that individual to grow. Ofcourse, the person should be acountable to God first: thinking '  what would God think about this situation?'  But I have found out that when you know that you are being watched, you work harder, act better and refrain from sinful deeds. In addition, familiy and friensd, admonish you, and also encourage you -which I think is excellent because it makes you a better person. Although a Chrisitian person's life shouldnt be life like the celebrities in such a way that every little move is watched, a Christian should have fellow Chrstian friends to formulate accountablity.

Tewodros: I have felt this experience myself before. We tend to be more cautious and more attentive to our work when our boss is around in such a way that we want to please him/her more which we think it can add a level of security to our job. Well this by itself is not a bad thing to do. What it is bad is if we are not doing what we suppose to do with the absence of our boss. Well that depends what kind of job we are doing and whether we can honor God doing our job. However I wonder if we could do the same things to our father in heaven. He is our father and God. We need to respect him and do what he tells us to do no matter what. His eyes are always on his children. He has given each one of a purpose or job we need to accomplish in this life. He also gave us a talent so that we may help others in our earthly responsibilities. Jesus told us that we need not to fear no one except God. We should respect our elders, bosses, leaders. But we need to fear God as he has the power to save and to kill. And not only that he has the power to redeem you from eternal death or not. So the point is compared to what a human can do to us, God can do so much more in everything. I am so much amazed by our fathers who understood this basic principle of life and honor him even if they come face to face with atoning fire, or when thrown in to a den of lions. They never hesitate for a second that they should honor the word of the king that can only kill but not burn in eternally fire, but they honor God who have the power to do both. And he was faithful to save them from their enemies. Praise the lord. God bless you!
 

What does the Bible says about marriage?

        tewodros    |    Apr. 4, 2014    



1 Corinthians 7 -

Now I will answer the questions that you asked in your letter. You asked, "Is it best for people not to marry?" Well, having your own husband or wife should keep you from doing something immoral. Husbands and wives should be fair with each other about having sex[fulfill his marital duty to his wife]. A wife belongs to her husband instead of to herself, and a husband belongs to his wife instead of to himself. So don't refuse sex to each other, unless you agree not to have sex for a little while, in order to spend time in prayer.

Faithfulness to the Lord Part 5

        tewodros    |    Apr. 3, 2014    



Faithfulness doesn’t focus on the enemy we kill rather it is about to use and depend on God's name to kill a giant enemy. It is all about trust and LOVE and hope and faith. When it is in our capability, we find no help. But when it is more than we can bear, help has already come to us.   

No disappointment, no anger is bigger than faithfulness. But in these last days, pleasure is its major enemy.  

Jesus said, 

I seek not my own pleasure but to do what my father tells me to do. 

He also said in some other place, 

If you believe in me, ask me and I will do it.&nb Read More +

Faithfulness to the Lord Part 4

        tewodros    |    Apr. 2, 2014    


You need to control those habit you and God know that you know it is not good. Devil may even try to convince you that it is ok to do it. 

I know the poor who cannot afford to eat good, quality food will make it to heaven. But I don't know some immoral people would. So fight immorality in general. Immorality is the source of all addiction. 

Immorality is the source of all addiction. 

 

And control your feelings. You cannot do righteousness with your feelings. But we can achieve that through endurance in faith and hope, through LOVE for one another and faithfulness to the Lord.  Read More +

How Do We Deal with Insult?

        tewodros    |    Apr. 1, 2014    


 

Anger is the opposite of LOVE. Anger is committed when someone attacks us like a lion. Take for example that someone just insults us in a very disgraceful manner. When that happens, you will feel so much anger because of the insult. No one on earth will take something like that. A disgraceful insult can come to us like an arrow and we can feel it piercing through our soul especially if we don't do anything to deserve it.


The person that insults us may be a healthy looking person even though no healthy person just put a curse on somebody else. As a result we become angry because we are insulted out of no where for some reason. We didn't do anything wrong but now we feel so much anger inside us. What do we need to do in response to that? The Lord said, "Dont worry about anything that comes to you. It will be processed and latter on, it will be excluded from you bod Read More +

Tan Yeowhwa: Brother Tedy, thanks for sharing about insult and how to handle them. I must admit that it is not easy to handle them well, yet I want to learn not to be so reactive when I receive insult but to take the matter to the Lord and let Him handle. Self respect is a very important virtue that we should have. For it gives us strength for the emotion, it guides us on the right principles and it helps us to be the person God creates us to be. Thanks for sharing Blessings always
Tedy: Thank you all for your wonderful comments. I pray that you become strong in Christ Jesus.
SaRang Park: Recently, I had an incident with my classmate at school. He spoke to me with very hurtful words, and I couldn't handle them. I kept asking myself what I should have done. My self-worth got low as I thought of what he said. Now I have read what you wrote about dealing with insult and treating others with love, I understand that I should have taken this to the Lord instead of allowing the words to let me down. I love how you described David and his reaction that pleased God. The blog is very encouraging and helpful. Thank you for sharing :)
 

The Level of our Faith

        tewodros    |    Mar. 29, 2014    



His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and Godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence,  by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire.

For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with Godliness, and Godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love.  For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For whoever lacks these qualities is so nearsighted that he is blind, having forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins.  - 2 Peter 1&nb Read More +

MARRIAGE IS GOD's IDEA

        worku    |    Mar. 29, 2014    


Marriage God's Idea  by Focus on the Family.  

 

Where there is anything that's designed, there is a designer. Whether it's a truck, building or train — or even marriage — there is always a mastermind behind the masterpiece. God, the mastermind of marriage, also has a plan for how marriage works best.  

 

It can be overwhelming to try and understand God's design and plan for marital love because contradicting and varying messages are everywhere: in books, magazines, movies and music. As a result, many couples fall into the trap of looking everywhere but to the Designer to find out what God intended for marriage. If you've tried understanding marriage through the world, there's a better way.   Read More +

What is it Uplifting Entertainment?

What is the form of entertainment our soul wants? Is there any form of boundaries that we make between our faith in Christ and the world out there? Do we put our things before our faith? Do we put our family before our faith in Christ?

Trusting God for his promises

        tewodros    |    Mar. 27, 2014    


It is always good to share an experience with somene we could trust as there is at least something we could learn from that with out repeting the same mistake. The things we shared with the person made us remember most of the good and bad times in our lives. Whether it is to discuss it or talked it through, we know that there is at least one person that we can freely share everything with. 

Why we shouldn t trust a person and trust only God? Well the answer is we don't want to trust a person but the spirit of the Lord inside that person. Although there is still a 50% probability that there could be devil inside no matter how strong and kind that person looks like. So the answer to the question that can we trust a person totally depends what kind of trust wewant to put on that person. Still God is the ultimate faithful and you can always put your trust on him. don't trust person no matter how good they look because we are humans after all. Read More +

Unconditional Love from the Lord

When God starts to talk to us, he talks loud and clear. There is nothing mysterious about his message

We need to realize that the way out of afflictions and strong bondage is absolutely from our side not Gods.

I believe there are different kinds of evil sprits that come to us to strip us from our grace. They come to us because they know our destiny is great. Thinking that, they have no options but to fight us while we are weak and unwise. That is what God s protection is always around us that they may not attack us forcefully or make us do what we don't want to do. Read More +

The Hardship of Relationships

        tewodros    |    Mar. 25, 2014    


Is it better to be alone than to be in relationship? We can really get hurt if we cannot find the distinct boundary in our relationships with others. Some tend to be more controlling and even more. Some are abusive by nature.

Our main curse when we are thrown to this world is so that we no more understand the true meaning of love - We tend to be abusive rather than loving and cherish. This curse is only taken by Lord Jesus Christ. Only when God wants to help us again. This is the time when he wants to be in peace with us after all those years of slavery of sin. Read More +

The Everlasting Dream

        fasika    |    Jun. 2, 2014    



My entire life I spend my time trying to make my soul do only what I really want to do, the real thing - The everlasting one. However, tied down by these world things, I couldn't do it as effectively as the Lord wanted me to do.

 

For some of us, life is a tragedy for us and a dream murderer since it attempts to kill all of our hidden eternal talents. What does it take any ways to be who we are, predestined by God even before our conception in the mother s womb - To respond to the calling that pre identified and selected us even before the foundation of the earth?

 

It is all about making a great commitment to the Lord form the bottom of our heart. But the doors should also be opened too. Paul heard the calling from Jesus and cannot let it go from his heart. What about you? You know the calling is still vivid in your heart.&nb Read More +

Our Actions have Consequences

        fasika    |    May. 30, 2014    


We cannot escape the tragedy that we brought into other people lives. We are still the victim of it one way or another. And it will finally locate us wherever we are and we will face the consequences of our actions.

 

This is whether we do good or bad. What we get is what we give. 

What we harvest is what we saw. What we do in secret, we will face it in public. The Lord will make sure we are rewarded or punished the little things we do in private.

 

We may think as a very elementary thing but yet the Lord will bring it to display. But wait, what is FORGIVENESS then, if I have to be punished and humiliated with the things I do wrong? Read More +

Who is Controlling Our Lives?

        fasika    |    May. 29, 2014    


Some people one way or another try to control us by imposing their own idea or try to make us do what we don't want to do. One good example is when Saul did what he didn't want to do by forcing himself to offer sacrifices that was not his duty in the first place.


"I thought, 'Now the Philistines will come down against me at Gilgal, and I have not sought the Lords favor.' So I felt compelled to offer the burnt offering." - 1 Samuel 13:12 

But when David was come face to face with his fellow soldiers and when they tried to kill him out of anger, he found a way out of their furiousness by mentioning the name of God.&nb Read More +

The Purpose:

        fasika    |    May. 28, 2014    



    

God has installed his purpose in us for his glory. He has made us in his likeness full of integrity and kindness for we shall look up onto him and find his image in him and he shall look down on us and find his image in us. 

God seeks relationship and LOVE besides his true glory and everlasting majesty. That is why he sent us his son to restore the kind of fellowship he had in Eden. 

It is always good to put aside our feelings and trust only on God's commandments. It is not good to feel smart and do some stupid things with out his consent. 

It is not good to do things only based on our thinking and not consulting God. He left his spirit within us for him to help us find out solutions to our problems. If we listen to little voice deep inside of us, there is everything we need there.&nb Read More +

Second Chance through Christ

        tewodros    |    May. 22, 2014    


      

I am a man whose heavenly gifts are striped by this cruel world. Or shall I say I change them with the deceitfulness of this world like Essaw. Any ways they are gone once and even a sorrowful cry cannot win them back. I am very much in sorrow because the devil took the gifts that I should use to bring multiple folds of fruitfulness to the Lord. 

 

I would not strive to try again if somebody is appointed to do the job I have created to do. But if that is the case, I might not live today. God should have taken me long time ago. It means God has still plans for my life. Even if my wings are broken, God has plans with me still. Even if my youth and energy is spent in vanity doing that I wasn't born to do. Read More +

Scriptures about Tithe

        fasika    |    May. 15, 2014    


The Bible teaches us to be generous and kind. It also teaches us to be kind and merciful like our father. Our father is abundant in grace and mercy. He did not break the weak. His compassion has no limit. He is the father of the helpless and the needy. He is very close to us more than our parents. In fact even if a mother forgets about her children, he will not.

 

Concerning gifts that we should contribute to our God and to others in need, the scriptures have already mentioned many ideas and in fact some of them are rules that we must obey our God with all our heart. One of these rules is bringing our gifts and tithes to our God. The portion of the money that goes to be a tithe is also mentioned in the Bible. Read More +

Gossiping

        tewodros    |    May. 13, 2014    


Once in a while we all find ourselves in to the sin of gossiping others.  Well if you tell a person not to speak judgment about another person, he will not definitely accept it because he might not speak anything at all.  

Yes we are this much gossipers. For God sake, what if we speak good things of that person to others. We tend to say kind words when the person is around but we turn our back and gossip when the person is not with us.  

I believe there are two opportunities that we might find ourselves in gossiping others. We may be badly hurt or someone close to us is hurt by this person we are gossiping. Or we are just doing it to comfort someone who says is badly hurt by the person we are gossiping.&nb Read More +

What do we expect from our marriage?

        fasika    |    May. 12, 2014    



Life especially marriage can be a very complicated thing if we don’t know how to manage it easily. It is complicated because we human beings are a very complex creatures that we don’t even understand ourselves deeply to its limit and we are the constituents of marriage as the Holy Spirit the head of the marriage.

We must be very clear what we need and communicate effectively with each other. Whether to love or not to love, to care or not to care for each other is all the choice we face every day. But sometimes the responsibility of marriage grows too much that we may not be able control it anymore. As we know, every day there are more responsibilities than before. The good news is we have our best friend God gave us to help us with the burden of li Read More +

Incompatible Great Power

        tewodros    |    Jun. 23, 2014    


After all those years of hard knocks and difficult times, we come too far to quit. This is not the time to quit as God controls everything. If we have the power to quit, we do it long time ago. The Lord has put a mark on his children. No devil can test them, mock them, and do what ever he wants with them. Therefore he cannot control our destiny. Our destiny is pre-designed and predetermined by God.  

No one knows our destiny except through him. The Lord has given us every opportunity. The things we get in life that we don't deserve is not because we are better than our friends. But God help us just to take us to our destiny and to fulfill his plan in our lives. If he wants us to live a normal life, we might not get those chances. God has stated it, he will finish it. &nb Read More +

Install the Spirit of Battle in Me

        tewodros    |    Jun. 20, 2014    


Psalm 73:25 Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you.b My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

Instantiate the spirit of battle in me, O Lord in Jesus name! Give me my previous privilege of being your son my Lord and my God. I will cry on to you. Restore my faith in you. 

To whom I shall cry? Whom I have on earth but you? Whom I have in heaven but you? I will not stop crying on to you until you hear me and help me. I believe I am not crying in vain. I believe you when you do miracles in people lives. I saw you delivering and snatching men from the mouths of the lions. &nb Read More +

Tan: Yes, this blog speaks to me as I feel the same way. Many around me want to see me fall, to see me die. Yet I want to live on for the sake of God and for the sake of His gospel. May the Lord not allow our enemies to triumph over us and may He prepare a table for us in the presence of our enemies. Thanks for sharing, Brother Tedy Blessings always

Judge no one, not even your self

        tewodros    |    Jun. 19, 2014    


When Jesus met with that Samaritan woman, she tried to hide her bad personal experience like anybody does. But Jesus told her everything she had gone through. He didn't say that she had lied because she didn't tell the truth. 

 

Here is the thing; you can't call a person a liar just because he didn't tell the truth. She hid her pain and misery that make her walk in sorrow. She didn't want to tell that to every stranger she met. But you can see how truthful she was when she told everybody about the messiah that she had found on her way home.  Read More +

Our Glamorous Calling

        tewodros    |    Jun. 18, 2014    


We do not live as they live. We are not called for drinking, eating and chatting. We are called for a glorious purpose that brings glory to God s name. He ordained us in the beginning for the greatest life of all. We don't see as they see, we don't talk as they talk. We are special people of God. In the end the scripture says, people start to marry each other, there will be a lot of celebration and will forget the return of the Lamb of God, the holy one.

 

But you dearest, watch the time and seasons as the coming of the Lord is unknown. Only God knows when, not even the son of man knows that day. But woe to those that are pregnant with the staff of this world, as that day becomes a lot of trouble for them. I mean tell me how good is to get deep in to the garbage of this world since the end of time is getting closer one level at a time? Read More +

Why Our Prayers do not get an Answer?

        tewodros    |    Jun. 17, 2014    


Well first of all it may not be the will of God. This doesn't mean God is selfish who only do what he wants. The thing is it is much better for us to be unhappy and to get in to heaven than to get what we want and be destroyed with it. What we wish is far from what we really need: God knows what we really need.

 

For example, we used to get easily attracted to someone who is not the will of God for us. But we wanted to be with him/her anyways. When God gives, God gives the best. There is no sorrow and grief in God's gift. Read More +

Sex before Marriage

        tewodros    |    Jun. 16, 2014    


There is the reason why we are not to make love with our spouse before marriage. The idea is we need to be able to use the same energy and passion to navigate through each other before coming to that point where we really want to share our body to our marriage partner.

It is to be able to understand the mind and soul and spirit of one another even before to be one in flesh. So we need to be one in words and understanding the mind of one another. 

We need to come to common decisions easily. We need to learn to submit us for another for the sake of the relationship we are about to make. We need to see one wants as ours. We need to reach one for another. We need to start carry loads one for another. While we start to do that we will develop love and trust.&nb Read More +

Love Makes Us Cry in Our Beds

        fasika    |    Jun. 11, 2014    


When we found our selves always under the presence of the Spirit of God, we may ask the question: why we love God and exceedingly much far better, why he loves us? 

Is it because he is our only provider? Is it because we saw him divide the oceans and admonish the waves in his mighty voice? Is it because we have no where to go? 

Is it because we are poor in the spirit and he is always our provider. Is it because our faith in us is strong? What is it? Why do we love you? Why we keep insisting to be in love with you and you are always with us? 

When we were only a child, we had a very strong feeling of love for you but wild. But still the love of your name makes us cry at night. Even now we want to make you happy in the ways we know better. Even now we have great desire for your consolidation.&nb Read More +

Feeling, Thought and Spirit

        Tewodros    |    Jun. 5, 2014    



Every human being constitutes three forms of elements of life. These are the three logical parts common to all human beings. When we feel something, it is within our body. We feel temptations from the flesh. Our body has immense nerve fibers that produce great sensational feelings.  

Whether we feel hunger or thirst, it eventually will be interpreted by the mind to take appropriate actions. Babies say and do exactly as they feel in their body. If they are sick, they will say they are sick. If they are hungry, they will describe the hunger.  

Feelings are natural instincts that can be controlled. Animals have their own natural instinct. When they feel cold or worm, they take appropriate actions. Many of our feeing goes with that of babies or animals. &nb Read More +

Mission to Win Souls for the Lord

        tewodros    |    Jun. 4, 2014    


All we need to do is to win souls for the Lord. The bible says he who wins souls is wise, but how much wise? We can start from the same way the devil uses his tricks. You see, we are more judgmental and we are more proud than the people of this world. 

 

I don't know how much we know about this but Jesus was humiliating him self just to save us. Sometimes, it takes all we have to win souls. It needs life to give life. Somebody has to die for some one to live.

Tedy: Blessed are those who listen to the lord and do it accordingly. God bless you Tan for your contribution to the kingdom of God to win souls.
Tan: Brother Tedy, yes go on to win more souls for the Lord, for this pleases Him So many are lost without Jesus, about 66,000 die each day without knowing Him. I do carry out tract evanglization here in Singapore and my target groups are the foreign workers. Most of them accept the tracts gladly , unlike the locals who are immune to the Gospel. Yet I will continue to do the little and will trust the Lord to multiply more souls and will raise more labourers for the Great harvest of the Lord. Thanks for sharing Blessings always
 

Only Few Things are Important

        tewodros    |    Dec. 29, 2013    


Here as we live, we have been forced into our ways, one way or another to live the life we don’t want. We do this or we do that in order to elevate our problems. Our deepest fears are controlling us. 

 

Because of this our lives doesn’t give any meaning to us any more. 

We are living in a shadow of uncertainties. We never think about what is really important. We may even don't know what is really important. 

 

We just do according to our senses and circumstances. We lived according to our previous experience. This however makes us one of the world most miserable people. And this is definitely so important for the enemy.  Read More +
