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

        Eskedar    |    May. 8, 2014    


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.

Immediate Emotional Healing

        fasika    |    May. 7, 2014    


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 +

Eskedar: if people pretend to be your friend but actually go behind your back and harm you, well they are not your friend. love them as Jesus commanded but yes keep your distance! not worth the time and love you invest on them

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 +

Robin Francis: The devil knows our weakness and will use it against us over and over because he doesn't have any new tricks! We all stumble and fall, but we get right back up! It will always be a fight as long as we are on the earth.. We have a real enemy who hates us and is out to destroy us... But all we need to remember is that Jesus defeated him! So, yes he can annoy us but he can't because of the blood of Jesus destroy us
 

The Woman I worked with

I rememeber saying my previous colleague told me about a great Christian fellow whose Chrstian life shone among the  non believers. I also worked with a Christian lady who had impressed me immensely.

Well from where shall I start? Firstly, she was deligent. Not only performed her tasks, but was also very willing to go out of her way to help others.

Secondly, she listened to the problems of others includung mine and strived to solve them- that is ofcouse - in her spare time. She prayed for me and took me to prayer centers. 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.
 

Dick and Rick - Father and Son Love Story

A love story about a father and a son who have got a large media coverage at the time. The son was born with birth complications and is not able to walk or talk because of his disability. 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.

 

In the eyes of many the son was helpless. But the parents didn’t take it that way. For them he is the same value and importance as any of their children born without difficulty. Read More +

Action speaks more than words

When I was working in one particukar institution, I used to have a colleague who was somewhat a Christian. He believed in Jesus Christ but hated affiliated himself with any church. 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 TO DISCIPLE OUR CHILDREN PROPERLY

        Tewodros    |    Oct. 15, 2019    


For those who have stubborn kids at home, there will be a time that we will be tempted to pull hair out of our heads our of anger. There will be time we will be angry and mad so much so that we want to discipline them in the wrong way.

Discipline is wrong if physical, emotional and psychological abuses are involved. There is big difference between physical and mental abuse and discipline. Discipline is guidance, like the GPS. It shows the right directions to reach to the ultimate goal.

When you read Bible to your child, you are installing a GPS system in your child’s life. When you pray the prayer with your children you are disciplining your child. When you walk the walk and talk the talk with them on certain issue on life, you are showing them ultimately Christ who is the good Shepard of our liv Read More +

How to Climb the Unclimbable?

        Tewodros    |    Oct. 5, 2019    



How to Climb the Unclimbable? Sometimes we are not sure which way to go when we come face to face with hardship in life. Life is so difficult for those who want to follow the truth. It is difficult to those who have the courage to say no to ignorance and sin. It is difficult to those who wants to live a life which is not contrary to the truth.

Whether it is living a righteous and healthy life or leading others in to the same, everything is kind of easy and normal when you flow with the current but the whole hell shake loose when you start to swim against the current. Many gave up their dreams and passions in life due to the struggles that they fac Read More +

Are we Saved by Work or Grace?

        Tewodros    |    Apr. 19, 2019    


There is still great debate among Christians about the issue of work vs grace. Some even put work for the reason for our salvation. In other words, they argue that our own righteousness plays a great role for our salvation. They also argue we need to do certain things like providing for the needy to remain saved.

There main scripture to support their argument is the Book of James. The Book of James in deed mentions about faith accompanied with work. It doesn’t say anything about work accompanied by faith, which leads us with the main concept about work and grace. It doesn’t mention about our salvation but it describes the fruits of the Spir Read More +

THE FIVE WISE WOMEN

        Tewodros    |    Apr. 18, 2019    



Mathew 25:1 The kingdom of heaven is like what happened one night when ten young women took their oil lamps and went to a wedding to meet the groom.

Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones took their lamps, but no extra oil. The ones who were wise took along extra oil for their lamps. The groom was late arriving, and the young women became drowsy and fell asleep. Then in the middle of the night someone shouted, “Here's the groom! Come to meet him!”

When the women got up and started getting their lamps ready, the foolish ones said to the others, “Let us have some of your oil! Our lamps are going out.” Those who were wise answered, “There's not enough oil for all of us! Go and buy some for yourselves.” While the foolish ones were on their way to get some oil, the groom arriv Read More +

The Invitation to Christ Wedding

        Tewodros    |    Apr. 15, 2019    


God has invited everyone to his kingdom.  His ambition and desire for all human beings are clear. He wants everyone to escape the eternal condemnation by believing Jesus Chris as their one and only savior.

For this reason, God has sent his only begotten son to earth so that everyone who have trust in him shall have eternal life.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life

But many still refuse this sacred calling to be partakers of the kingdom of God for whatever reason they may have in their mind. Some reasons inclu Read More +

God’s Love Never Fails

God’s Love Never Fails. God keeps Loving us even if we do not completely abide by his love. He keeps forgiving us even though we don’t forgive our selves.

Lamentations 3:22

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,   for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning;  great is your faithfulness.

I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;  therefore I will wait for him.”  The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him,  to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly  for the salvation of the Lord.&nb Read More +

20 Risk Factors for Eternal Condemnation

        Tewodros    |    Jul. 15, 2018    



Jesus has repeatedly mentioned several verses in the Bible where one can endanger his soul of hell. He even used very simple stories to illustrate his teachings to make them easy to understand and very hard to forget.

Some of the teachings were about:

1. Ignoring the invitation of the King to the wedding. Read Math. 22:1

This is rejecting the invitation to peace and reconciliation to our God through our Lord Jesus Christ. If anyone didn’t accept Jesus as his savior and Lord, he is opting himself out of the kingdom of God.

Key = Obedience to God’s Calling.

10 Qualities of Great Leaders

        Tewodros    |    Jun. 5, 2018    


1. David when he was given the throne, he took the chance to build the temple of God. Even if God chose King Solomon as the builder of the temple of God instead of King David, King David was burning with passion and zeal to build it. He spent all his life to prepare for this project and he passed the mantle to King Solomon to do the Job. I love the way he listened to God. He didn’t argue with God that he will do it since he has the skill or the power to do it. He learned from Saul’s sin against God that obedience is better than sacrifice.

2. David when he was convicted of sin of counting the number of people of Israel to see how many men can serve in his army, God had eventually punished him by sending a disease to kill the people. But David having known that he has sinned, he begged God to take away his punishment from his people. Furthermore, he offered himself to be punished instead of his people. What a great humility and love for his people we learn from th Read More +

Conditional Blessing

        Fasika    |    Jul. 21, 2014    



God set precondition for our blessings in this life but not to our salvation.  Our salvation is pre-destined but not our blessings. Our obedience to the laws of God can determine our blessings but not necessarily our salvation.

Our faith determine our salvation. Does this mean a sinner will inherit the kingdom of God? Definitely not. But we cannot work our salvation by obeying the laws only. The laws cannot justify our salvation. It justifies that we are not able to do our own salvation due to the fact that we are sinners and Christ died for us to break the spiritual bondage.

We are saved by the grace and mercy of God shown through Christ and not by our works and deeds. But then if we can’t do anything to justify ourselves against sin and if only the work of Jesus can only sanctify us why do we even bother to do the right thing the Lord expects from Read More +

Our Faith in Christ Matters

Romans 4:7  “Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered;

The sanctification of our sin is completely out of the compassion of our God towards us. For sin has entered the world by one man’s fault, it is by one man’s obedience we shall be saved out of the goodness and mercy of God and not by our goodness or righteousne Read More +

Jesus, the morning star

        Fasika    |    Jul. 17, 2014    


Jesus wants to get your attention. God the father has been working since the beginning of time. You must be working also. The only way you can check if you are working in the spirit is how you wake up in the morning.  

 

Are you prepared for the new day? Are you prepared to see your father working in your life and in the life of others? Do you want to please him in your ways? Do you want to know what to do from dawn to dusk? Do you want to see his face?  

 

Do you want to see his glory? Are you ready to be used? Are you ready to be the servant of the most high? If you are ready, please don’t turn your first Angel down. Please don’t give him any excuse and reason not to get up. As he is Angel and he might not compromise with your procrastinations. He could take your word as it is. So be careful what you say with the Angels. You cannot see the dark night without light unless some kind of sun light shines.  Read More +

Communication is the Key to Relationships

        Tewodros    |    Jul. 16, 2014    



Whether it is at the office or at home, whether with a stranger at the super market or with an old friend at the park, whether with family and friends or with our Lord and savior Jesus Christ, everything falls at the stake of the words that comes of our mouth, the words we use to communicate.

Relationship depends on communication and vise versa.  We tend to talk more or communicate more with someone we are very close with. The issue is all about trust and faith. But then how do we communicate effectively with someone who we don’t feel intimate with?

There is so much power when individuals communicate for a common goal and purpose. We can see that how much the people of Babylon accomplished and fail to do so when they cannot communicate no mo Read More +

The Gift of all Gifts

        Fasika    |    Jul. 14, 2014    



God is the giver of all of our heavenly gifts. God has blessed us without measure out of the abundance of mercy. It is not because we deserve it but it is because of his magnificent love and kindness for us. We have done nothing to win God’s grace.   

It is not even something we have to compete for. God is more than fair in his judgment. God has judged in favor of us but still his judgment is fair. He has decided to save us long time ago. He has interfered with our affliction and he has given us rest and an everlasting place to live.   

We were not expecting anyone to come to us to save us but you, Lord. Most of all you gave us love to abide by. You gave us your son which is our greatest blessing. Everything else is extra. Every kind of blessing you gave to us is something additional. But they are still important to us. &nb Read More +

The Desire for the Glory of God

        Fasika    |    Jul. 11, 2014    



How beautiful it is when we do all things for God's glory no matter what we do! The fear of him will always be in you. This is the next intimate relationship with God. You no more have feelings for the self. Instead you always try to realize what makes him happy and what makes him sad. You don’t seek your own expectations of what makes him happy. Instead you do only what he tells you to do. You don’t seek your own desires but instead you go after his. You don’t run after your wild dreams but you will follow him wherever he leads you.

You don’t hesitate to follow his laws instead you direct your path according to his will. You don’t try to make someone happy just to get attention. You make him happy first and all the rest latter. You don’t fear no one but the only one who should be respected all the time. 

This is how you will glorify his name on your life. The name that have the full power on the earth and the heaven. His name is Jesus and it is sweetest than anything else. You start to live as a sacrifice to his pleasure not drawn too much to your own desires running away from slavery of the mind, the body and the soul which is only possible through the Lord Jesus Christ. 

How good is it to worship God in the midst of his congregation? How blessed we shall be if we can really make him happy with our songs - a song that comes from truthful mouth.  How blissful to be chosen by God for his own work. How blessed is the person whose tongue that really speaks the right thing at the time of need. How great his love? How wonderful is his mercy? He ought to be worshiped and glorified. Therefore we should go on and on praising him all the days and all nights of my remaining life.

After all life is too precious to play with and we should take all the effort to preserve it. Praying is sometimes the best we can do about it. Sometimes, when God requests something from us to do something or to just believe, it is because he has better plans. Moreover, when we are asked to do something we better do it because it is for our good he plans.

Sometimes God requests us to give what we love most just to express how much we love him. Like a father who gives something to his son and ask him back. We become too much focused and overwhelmed by the item, and we say we won’t let go. Hay! It is already God's gift to us and the thing is we better like it or not we should give it back and we know God is not a taker. He will give it back to us again. Let’s believe him and he is faithful to do what is best for Read More +

The Word of God

        Fasika    |    Jul. 10, 2014    


God says on Hose, ‘my people are destroyed because of lack of knowledge’. He didn’t say lack of grace. He didn’t say lack of money or love.

Can you imagine how important it is to be in the truth? When the light of his word shines upon your face, no evil force can stand in front of you. You problems will be gone like a wind. Now the only way he can teach you adequately is not through mere reading but through revelation of his word through his spirit.

Every now and then we found ourselves short of the revelation of the word of God.  Sometimes we make ourselves busier than we ought to be. We tend to be completely unavailable and unreachable to the Spirit of the Lord and yet we expect to see results in all areas of our lives.

The fact is if we deprive ourselves the knowledge that comes from the word of God, we couldn’t accumulate enough wisdom to resist temptation and lead our lives in the right way that the Lord wanted us to lead.

The most important thing is we can’t blame God or someone else when the problems arrive. The excuse to say that we are unaware of the circumstance and unaware of the will of God is not acceptable once we fall short of the protection of God

God is an awesome God. He has prepared the road map of our salvation, richness, happiness and joy in his word. He has also given his Spirit so that the ordinary man can understand the word that comes the mouth of an extraordinary and magnificent God.

We don’t have any reason not to be affected by his love and mercy extended to us through the Lord Jesus Christ. We don’t have any reason not to read his word and not to be comforted by his Spirit.

So brothers and sister in Christ, please let us spend each and every precious moment with the Lord through his word and Spirit. He will help us accumulate enough knowledge and wisdom to faithfully serve him with all we have got and pass it to our children, the next generation to come.

May God overflow the love of reading the Bible every day and establish a committed relationship with him through Christ in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Emotions, Thoughts and Spirit Part 2

        Tewodros    |    Jul. 9, 2014    


Our emotions are our guiding checking points of our lives. Whenever we feel angry we will soon understand that there is something going on that needs the interference of the Holy Spirit in our lives. We see that with out dealing with our emotions according to the word of God and the conviction of the Holy Ghost, we will not head in to the right direction.


If we are not reading the Bible daily, we will not have enough knowledge that will lead us to the right direction. When we were under the slavery of sin, we will do everything that the devil has demanded from us. We will not have enough power but to take everything that our temporarily feelings has caused us to feel.

We are easily angered and we don’t have enough power to resist the devil temptations or that of the flesh’s desire. Once we are saved by the grace of God and baptized with Holy Ghost, it is completely opposite of what we used to feel. We no longer feel the urge of committing the sin we used to do. We are completely healed from it.

We are emotional beings and that doesn’t necessary mean it is bad. There is a time where our emotions like a sixth sense tell us to completely get away from a disaster about to come . Yes, when the Spirit of the Lord touches our spirit and indicate there is harm in our way; we tend to feel what is to come in our emotions. We fear a little bit we trouble and get angry in other words they are giving a sign of something is about to begin that is unusual to us.

The other side of this is when we tend to be carried away to listen and stick to our emotions when it could be a false alert. There is a little evidence that our emotions don’t lie to us. The truth is we are not sure what others are thinking and we are also clue less whether or not they could harm us.

So our emotions are our guidelines but not our final remarks to make decisions. Sometimes we become too much embittered and we don’t know what to do after we got some sense of negative feelings. Well I know for sure that if we follow that then that will be the end of everything.

When the moment is filled with bitter emotions and we are victims of our feelings. When things do not look right or we don’t feel it in more pleasant way. There is still plenty of time and energy in us that will make us flee from our emotions and get on track.

Instead of our deepest fears and emotional imbalances, if we focus on the grace and love that the Lord is pouring in to our spirit, we will have a humble experience and can lead to the right direction.

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 +

Hope through Holy Spirit

Even though our enemies are more in number than before,Even though all hopes seem to be gone and we look like helpless,

Even though the devil condemns us with more sin and when our problems increase in number,

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 +

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 +

The Message of Freedom

        tewodros    |    Dec. 28, 2013    


What do we refuse not to be called the son of the king of Egypt like Moses? Instead of enjoying the pleasure of sin, he preferred to suffer with God's people. He knew by faith that the pleasure he could get from the wines and the women in the palace were only for the moment. But he saw a nation who has a promise from the Lord. He saw an eternal joy and victory that is from the Lord.  

Joseph by faith refused to sleep with his master's wife. Even if he was for a while a servant in his master's house, he didn't see himself as one. He was a free man because he knew where he came from and he knew where he was going.  

He compared the little pleasure he could get with this woman to the eternal joy and reward. There are two kinds of people in this world&nb Read More +

Obedient Love and Faithfulness

        tewodros    |    Dec. 27, 2013    


He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.  1 John 4:8 

God's LOVE is the solution to all of our problems. When we face difficult situations, simply think of LOVE. LOVE make us do things that we can't do before. LOVE is the instrument of bearing instruction for loved ones. 

Obedience is the only way to express our love. Unexpressed love is a dead love. There is no way the other person knows our love unless we expressed it. The only way to show our love to others is to do what they ask in God's way. Otherwise, it will be selfish love. And we can't win their heart with selfish love. &nb 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 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 +

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 +

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 +

Who is the Disciple of Jesus Christ?

If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.  And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.

For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him, Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.

Healing through Christ

        Tewodros    |    Mar. 11, 2018    



Heal me, O Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise. ~ Jeremiah 17:14

Most of us have passed through a very long period to get completely healed from our sinful behavior washed by the blood of Jesus Christ. During those difficult times, we promised to God to do his will to get healed from our infirmities. we say, "If I only get healed, I will be your faithful servant. If I only get healed, I will do so and so. I will get better, if only I get this."

There is a great resemblance between sickness in the physical body and spiritual body. There is no precondition for our spiritual sickness as there may not be other option for cancer treatment other than to go for chemotherapy. Please remember, when we sin, we are infected with a deadly disease. I am not talking about this rubbish physical body. It is the spiritual body, spirit and soul that you will bring to the Lord. That my friend is rotten, smelling and dead. You cannot get to heaven with that. In fact, you cannot get anywhere except hel Read More +

The Destiny of False Prophets

        Tewodros    |    Jan. 15, 2018    


2 Peter 2:1

But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not. 

For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;  And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; 

And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:  (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: 

But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord. But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;  

And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you; Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; 16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet. 

These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. 

While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of right
br>osness
br>&a
p;a
p;n
sp;than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. 
But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire. 

As there were false prophets and teachers in the old days, there are false prophets and teachers in the present day church. These false prophets and teachers are once saved by the grace of God but now they have abandoned the truth and destroyed by their own selfish desires. The fact that they defile and disregard the salvation they received through Christ means they are heading to great destruction. Not only did they brought eternal condemnation to them, but they also relay that to the body of Christ.

Many will follow their evil desires and sensual sins. Because of these false teachers and prophets, the name of the Lord will be ridiculed among the unbelieving nations. Their main agenda is exploiting the resources of the people of God. Many have spent enormous amount of money, time and energy on the so called “prophets”. Their destiny is already decided by the Lord and their destruction will be very soon. 

If God didn’t have any pity for sinful angels whom he has placed them in hell so that they can be kept until final judgment, If God doesn’t have any mercy for those people who rebelled against him in the time of Noah saving only Noah and his family and destroyed any other creature on earth,

If he turns the city of Sodom in to ashes, If he saved only two people from over half a million people of Israel, and the rest had died in the wilderness before they see the land of hope and prosperity, then God surely will condemn and judge those people who have no respect for the Lord and are only led by their filthy desires. God knows how to save His very own and very best from the destruction that is about to come on the false prophets and the world in general. 

These false teachers have no due respect for higher authorities in the Spirit which are God’s Angels. When you look at them, they look like very confident in what they are doing which is insult and blasphemy against God and the servants of the Lord. Their pride has gone way over the limit.  Even if God’s Angels are higher in authority than these people, they did not dare to despise them. They insult and disregard to the things of God will cost them their eternal life. Their ignorance on this matter is what makes them to speak of things that are unwholesome. 

Their characteristics are like animals who are destined for destruction. With out confession, their destruction is sure to come. Their life is filled with sinful dance and arrogance. They encourage others to do sin which is they always fix their eyes on. They always snare up on those who are week in the Spirit and are double minded. Since these people are not satisfied with the truth of the gospel, they dread to hear what only their evil hearts want to hear. And the false prophets are the right choice for them to satisfy this desire. 

"You must correct people and point out their sins. But also cheer them up, and when you instruct them, always be patient. 3 The time is coming when people won’t listen to good teaching. Instead, they will look for teachers who will please them by telling them only what they are itching to hear. 4 They will turn from the truth and eagerly listen to senseless stories. 5 But you must stay calm and be willing to suffer. You must work hard to tell the good news and to do your job well." -2 Timothy 4:2


The false prophets and their followers have this unsatisfied desire which they crave to seek and find outside the Word of God. If the Son of God doesn’t satisfy them, no other thing in the world will do. Due to their natur
hey are 
ike t
e cu
sed seed that never grow up to bear spiritual fruits.  They once were following the truth with good consciousness and positive mind, but now they have neglected their true callings and got astray in the direction of covetousness and adulatory. 

It takes a donkey to speak and advice the false prophet, Balaam, whose way was evil and corrupt. If he listened and turned from his madness, why don’t the false prophets of this generation come back from their evil schemes and confess all their sins to the Lord. 

Otherwise, the judgment of God is very near and eternal darkness and punishment are awaiting them. Their ways are like wells with out water, clouds with out rain, and their words are useless for anyone who cares to listen. With those superficial and empty words which look like the truth from outside, they led many to the pit that ought to be saved from the devil.

One of the promises they make is they say their words will deliver many from their affliction. With a positive mind, that may see the right thing to communicate to the people but yet with out the truth in it, it is useless. They should have waited for positive affirmation of the Spirit of God before they prophesized the words of so called “Comforting words” to God’s people.

The old testament also indicates that false prophets doing such things have died after speaking their message since they used God’s name to speak a lie to His people. 

Jeremiah 28:10

Hananiah grabbed the wooden yoke from my neck and smashed it. 11 Then he said, “The Lord says this is the way he will smash the power Nebuchadnezzar has over the nations, and it will happen in less than two years.”  I left the temple, and a little while later, the Lord told me to go back and say to Hananiah: I am the Lord All-Powerful, the God of Israel. You smashed a wooden yoke, but I will replace it with one made of iron. I will put iron yokes on all the nations, and they will have to do what King Nebuchadnezzar commands. I will even let him rule the wild animals. 

Hananiah, I have never sent you to speak for me. And yet you have talked my people into believing your lies and rebelling against me. So now I will send you—I’ll send you right off the face of the earth! You will die before this year is over. Two months later, Hananiah died.  If using the name of God in vain and lying could cost one’s life in the old testament, home much more it will be sinful to deceive and grieve the Spirit of God, in which we are sealed for our redemption. 

Ephesians 4:30

And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, in whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 

They them selves are living the life of a slave in the Spirit since they too are under the condemnation of sin. Then how can they preach freedom if they are under slavery of sin. If anyone is under any consistent sin, he or she is slave to the thing that has power over him/her.

If any one falls under the sin of adulatory, and says he can deliver people from any sin, then that person is fooling himself. These people know the truth which is Christ. But then they are entangled by the evil desires of the world and cannot get out of it since they love the world more than they love the Lord, whom He loves them till death.

Because of this, their former life (the life before they know the truth) is much better than their current life. It is much better for anyone to not know Christ in the first place than to deny Him after knowing that He is the savior of their soul. As the saying goes “Dogs go back to their own vomit”, these people go back to their filthiness over and over again.

Remember Me in Your Kingdom

        Tewodros    |    Dec. 3, 2017    



Luke 23:32 Two criminals were led out to be put to death with Jesus. When the soldiers came to the place called “The Skull,” they nailed Jesus to a cross. They also nailed the two criminals to crosses, one on each side of Jesus. Jesus said, “Father, forgive these people! They don’t know what they’re doing.”

While the crowd stood there watching Jesus, the soldiers gambled for his clothes. The leaders insulted him by saying, “He saved others. Now he should save himself, if he really is God’s chosen Messiah!” The soldiers made fun of Jesus and brought him some wine. They said, “If you are the king of the Jews, save yourself!” Above him was a sign that said, “This is the King of the Jews.” One of the criminals hanging there also insulted Jesus by saying, “Aren’t you the Messiah?

True Worship and Fasting

        Tewodros    |    Oct. 10, 2017    



Worship and fasting have similar characteristics. They both can be superficial and don't make any difference in the spiritual. One can do both with a lot of dedication and lot of zeal but it may not impress our Lord Jesus Christ. Why you asked? It is because worship and fasting should be done giving importance about their true meaning as the Bible teaches us on Isaiah 58.

Shout the message! Don’t hold back. Say to my people Israel: You’ve sinned! You’ve turned against the LORD. Day after day, you worship him and seem eager to learn his teachings. You act like a nation that wants to do right by obeying his laws. You ask him about justice, and say you enjoy worshiping the LO Read More +

The Spirit of Unity

        Fasika    |    Sep. 17, 2017    


Ephesians 4

As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it.8 This is why it[a] says: “When he ascended on high, he took many captives and gave gifts to his people.” (What does “he ascended” mean except that he also descended to the lower, earthly regions? &nb Read More +

The Nature of Our Heart

        Tewodros    |    Jul. 15, 2017    




Genesis 8:21 And the LORD smelled a sweet savor; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more everything living, as I have done.

God speaks here that all humans are wicked except Christ Jesus who is perfect human and God. If you start to dig in to the nature of any man you will be surprised with what you will find. You don’t have to go far. Just stop for a second and start to think about your own heart. Most of the time no one wants to look deep in to the nature of his own heart since we already know we are wicked by natu Read More +

Salvation Check Point

        Tewodros    |    Jul. 12, 2017    


If the mercy and forgiveness we feel every day by the power of the Holy Ghost are not strong enough in our lives to do the same for other people, our faith is in danger. We have to stop for a minute and think why we are acting the way we act. The Spirit of God is active in our lives if we follow God’s will. But if we don’t follow him, we will not feel his presence when we need him most. We may think he is still with us but the fact is he is gone long time back. What a great tragedy would it be for any born again Christian to let this happen due to silly mistakes? It is very important to know that Holy Spirit like any human being has feelings. He can feel very bad when we are mean and unloving to othe Read More +

God is Faithful Part 2

        Tewodros    |    Jul. 4, 2017    


It always amazes me how the smallest things we do to honor and please God have a great impact not only in our lives but to many more generations to come. When God sees a little bit of faithfulness in our lives, He makes sure he rewards that with so many blessings in our lives and the lives of others. God is so faithful. He keeps His promises that He made to us.

He won’t leave us alone when we need Him the most. What we need to know about this everlasting relationship we have in Christ is that God is so faithful. No matter how ugly our sins are He is so faithful and forgiving when we come before him with a humble and humiliated heart with absolute repentance spiri Read More +

God is Faithful

God is Faithful: An Epic contradictory story between King David and King Solomon

1 King 11: 1 King Solomon, however, loved many foreign women besides Pharaoh’s daughter—Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Sidonians and Hittites. 2 They were from nations about which the LORD had told the Israelites, “You must not intermarry with them, because they will surely turn your hearts after their gods.” Nevertheless, Solomon held fast to them in love. 

3 He had seven hundred wives of royal birth and three hundred concubines, and his wives led him astray. 4 As Solomon grew old, his wives turned his heart after other gods, and his heart was not fully devoted to the LORD his God, as the heart of David his father had been.&nb Read More +

The Parable of the Sower

        Fasika    |    Aug. 8, 2014    


Matthew 13:   That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake. 2 Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore.  Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed.  As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up.  Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow.  But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root.  Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants.  Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.  Whoever has ears, let them hear.”  Read More +

What is in obedience?

        Fasika    |    Aug. 7, 2014    


Why it would be better off obeying the Lord instead of disobeying him? Why do we follow his ways rather than ours? Why is it very important that you must obey the Lord no matter what?

I believe the answer to all of these questions lies in the outcome of our action. We need to obey the Lord since our final glory is installed in it. You are going to see what God has prepared for you from the beginning of time. These wonders and miracles are just in their place waiting for you just to get revealed. Without obedience, your will fall short of God’s glory.  Read More +

The Love and the Fear of the Lord

        Fasika    |    Aug. 6, 2014    



Once in a while we found ourselves short of the glory of God for the transgression we made against the Lord. Most of our sinfulness come from the lack of the fear of the Lord. Our job is to honestly serve others like Christ did. But our thoughts and actions are not far from sin. That is why we need to come before God every day to make our way right with him.

We don’t know whether we should go with one idea or the other. When it comes to honoring the name of the Lord, we don’t know exactly what to do. When it comes to choosing whom to please between two individuals that we love, we don’t know what to do. Apparently it might be easier for us to understand when it comes to loving the Lord more than anybody el Read More +

How to Argue Politely

        Tewodros    |    Aug. 5, 2014    


It is so often that we find ourselves in a different perspective/view with our spouse. This is not evil by itself but we need to find a way to tell that in a loving and caring way whether the other person really cares for us or not. Disagreement occurs when what we trust and what we love seems to be violated or not taken as important.

It occurs when we felt unloved and untrusted. Most of the time that seems to be true but the fact is, it is a very dangerous weapon that could destroy our relationship. Argument destroys relationship in such a way that whenever we felt we are unloved or untrusted, we will speak words that would destroy our relationship. You will always be tempted to say wrong words that will create the wrong impression that they are not cared for and loved for and needed for.&nb Read More +

Love Heals Relationships

        Tewodros    |    Aug. 4, 2014    


The nature of our love and attention to our spouse is so self-centered that sometimes we might fall in to pits of disappointment every now and then. The word self-centered has to do with only me but not us and it always raises the question which has me in it. “Why don’t you tell me that?”, “What do you do for me?” etc.

As your draw your attention more into the boundaries of other people lives, you will do an error that you will just do one thing to mess around with it that it all happen because you are not just handling with care but with a lot of feelings that are not responsible and matured. Read More +

We all Change

        Fasika    |    Aug. 1, 2014    


We are changing just a little bit every day. Do you know that whatever event has happened, it will redirect you to a new event and a new environment, due to someone has already changed the environment?

Because a new environment is created, the outcome will also be changed. Whenever a new environment is created, either because a new thing is introduced or the state of our mind has changed, then we have to consider this before we make any decision and take actions based on our decision.

This is all about life. Our brain is changing dynamically due to our experience to the Almighty. A new revelation has occurred and you are no longer the same person as before.  

So what has our mind to do with all of this? Our mind involves mainly with all the skills and training we need to perform our job with ease. Our incompetence is our weakness. It makes us unqualified or untrained. It will make some slaves while others become king Read More +

Art is Deceptive but Faith is for Real

        Tewodros    |    Jul. 28, 2014    



I am so amazed by the art of living of this world. No one listens a speech without enthusiasm. All day long they think about pleasing themselves. You cannot get someone’s attention without art. They are going to hell and they never look back. They would rather die than listen.

They pay a lot of price to get the junks of this world. Devil tricked them with the sense of an art. They are dragging away to distraction with the idea of false freedom and faked pleasure. I saw many who can’t compromise with their happiness. They all are self-centered and for that purpose they live. They can’t think outside of their ego and they care not for others.

They are willing to reward someone who can affect their lives in a negative way. But God honestly and truly has invited every one, free of charge and with his two hands opened. All the time he is ready to take you back. But I say this with hopelessness that no one wants to returns from his own ways. No one wants to listen to the calm voice of the Lord and no one even cares that there is a savior for the lost. No one astonishingly believes that someone out there gives everything to save us.

There are times when people would rather pay their own money and spent their time with the evil than to turn back to Lord and repent their sins by hearing the calm voice of the Lord. Some start to talk against the word of God that comes to them. Some insult the servants of the Lord. Why because they feel like they are distracted from their own ways by God. When I see all of this I realize that punishment is for real.

In its due time God will punish everyone who is rebelling against his will for our lives. We only have a relatively small amount of time to turn from our evil ways and come back to our father who is always ready to love us in the same way he loved us before. His love for our lives never changes never ends.

His promises are not like human promises that will break. They are everlasting peace, joy and rest for our soul. We are created to form everlasting relationship with our father not to live in solitude.
And as of these selfish desires of ours, they will never get satisfied nor can we feel the joy and happiness from the garbage we desire to fill our selves except through our Lord Jesus Christ.


God’s wrath on the wicked is real. Let us not fake ourselves in to believing the wrong message from the devil. Let us be fruitful and productive by spending our valuable time doing the right thing our soul wanted to do through the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Having done all of that, let’s come to him who gives grace to the humble and tell him, “My Lord I have done the work you have prepared for me before I was formed in my mother’s womb. I am so lucky to be an instrument of hope, faith and love. I am so delighted to be used by you for your glory. Let my days end worshiping your true nature with all my strength and might. In the name of Jesus”

True Worship without Pride

        Tewodros    |    Jul. 25, 2014    



What made the devil the devil is his pride - taking true glory which of Gods to himself. That made him fall and changed a worshiping Angel in to a daemon. He compared himself to God and liked it and just allowed pride to sneak in to him. He took the moment to enjoy it for himself. That seriously made God very angry that he cast him down from an outstanding glory in to the darkness.

Isaiah 14: 13
You said in your heart,
    ‘I will ascend to heaven;
above the stars of God
    I will set my throne on high;
I will sit on the mount of assembly
    in the far reaches of the north;
 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds;

The Reason behind Sinning

        Tewodros    |    Jul. 24, 2014    



Is it because we really want to make God unhappy? Is it because the rebellious nature of our heart? Is it because of bad things happened to us? Do we like to anger God like we want to anger our parents? I believe there are many reasons why we keep rebelling against God.


Sin caused by anger is more permanent than sin caused by our disappointments. Whenever we come face to face with our disappointments, we need to remind our selves that everything that has happened to us has already happened to someone else too.

We need to think also of bigger problems people face in their day to day activities. And we need to take this life as something extra. We have to despise the honor we can possibly get from this world to be a qualified citizen in heaven. Now, there are somethings that can make us angry even on the physiological level.

But they will have that power only if we allowed them to control our feelings in the first place.

The Art of Fishing

        Tewodros    |    Jul. 23, 2014    


Art focuses on the presentation. Art is on the display. Art is love. Art is relationship based on feelings. Art is doing something crazy and madness for the sake of love and respect. Fishing people souls for Jesus takes an art. Please never underestimate the power of Art.   

Never underestimate the power of presentation. Never underestimate the power of unselfishness and love.  It doesn’t matter what you feel or have in side of you if you don’t find a way to show your love for others, it will not benefit any one.

What good does it make if someone says he has a great love for others but couldn’t find a way to reveal it in its due time. So what is an art of living a wonderful and amazing life with others while we live in this world. Well first we need to know what we have for one another.&nb Read More +

        Tewodros    |    Jul. 22, 2014    


Everybody knows what it feels like to be left alone and what it feels like to struggle alone. Everybody who is going through some kind of emotional stress knows what it feels like to face the truth even if it is painful and full of agony.

If someone is without hope, he cannot be able to help himself let alone helping others. You could say I am one step close to death. You could say I can’t live without hope. You are right. No one can face life without hope. What for?  I mean there should be some inspiration installed in us that keeps us to go one step at a time. 

That is the spirit of man. The spirit of man is like a candle waiting to be enlightened. Pity is the man who doesn’t have the light to turn him on. How deep and how long the darkness shall be if someone walks without knowing the prince of peace and hope, our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. I can’t live without hope. Every day the Lord reminds us of the greatest hope that we have as Christians that is our inheritance with him forever. He is going to come and take us with him. That is the greatest hope we have in Chri 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 End Times

        tewodros    |    Mar. 19, 2014    


Matthew 24:44 

Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.

When everything looks good, smooth and safe; 

When everyone asks you to go forward and just try it; 

When every feeling and every nerve urge you to continue; 

It is good to listen to the Lord. 

 

No matter what it is, it good to stop and think  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 +

Praise God

        fasika    |    Mar. 14, 2014    


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 +

What causes sexual immorality?

        Fasika    |    Aug. 20, 2014    


People bind themselves in to all manner of sexual impurity now and then due to many reason. For one thing they face serious issues in their lives and they cannot control themselves no more and they found themselves under the darkness of sin now and then.

They also experience sin for a long time so that they become addicted to it and they have no more the resistance to say no to it. Their spirit become so week that they lose many battles when it comes to withholding themselves always from sin. Sin, especially sexual sin, is not something one can easily get in and get out of it without paying some penalty. Read More +

What is the Purpose of sexual purity?

        Fasika    |    Aug. 19, 2014    


God made us to in his own likeness and image. This necessarily doesn’t mean he has a face like us. No one has seen God to testify who he is like. Only his begotten son who is in his embrace tells us everything we should know about him. God is like a blazing fire and God is a spirit and those who worship him and want to praise him do so in the spirit. 

That means he created us to be holy like him.

So in order to be fit to worship him we have to be holy like him.

This doesn’t mean that we can do it all by ourselves. There is nothing we can do by our own when it comes to the kingdom of God. Read More +

Sexual Purity

        Fasika    |    Aug. 18, 2014    


This is the time in life where we should be pure inside and outside. That we may present ourselves as pleasing sacrifice to the Lord. The world become more aggressively cruel against all forms of righteousness.

There is nothing good coming out of it these days. Wickedness is all over the place. Even if it is difficult for the flesh to depart ourselves from the way of the world and surrender ourselves to the Lord, sooner or later we have to make this important decision before we are taken away by the filthiness of the world.

Be Fruitful and Multiply

        Fasika    |    Aug. 15, 2014    


How much should we believe in the Lord to bear physical fruits that God expects from us? We don’t want to be rich but mighty in richness of his abundance since we shall not want a thing dwelling in his presence. We couldn’t stand the mocking of the world saying we are lazy and fruitless. 

This is a total disgrace to you Lord. Please help us for your name sake. All of our previous success was of course because of you. You have done many miracles in our lives to make who we are today. You are our potential and knowing you is the source of our strength. Please make us mighty in battle to revenge our enemies. In all of this we know that your timing is so important. You make all things beautiful in its time. Who knows our past failures and success are all a stepping stone for our future?  Read More +

To Love others no matter who they are

        Fasika    |    Aug. 14, 2014    


Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Ephesians 4:32

When we are called to the kingdom of God through Christ, we have to renew our mind and walk by faith with the principle of the new covenant that God has made with us. One of the things we have to know is that we have to love others no matter who they are.

God called us in to his embrace with only one thing in his mind. He called us to save us for our good and not for his own sake. God is not a human to be selfish. He is compassionate and loving God that he sacrificed his only son to create a path for us to come to him out of destruction and reunite with him in love. Read More +

The Words of Faith and Hope

        Fasika    |    Aug. 13, 2014    


Our words whether it the thoughtfulness and kindness or all form of bitterness and anger, it will build or destroy our relationship one way or the other. The gateway through our lives is our heart through our senses. It is also true that our lives is completely fall upon about what we think and experience on a daily basis.

Words alone will not produce any fruit. But words of faith backed up with constructive actions will produce good results. I would like to discuss the benefits of speaking with care that can positively affect our lives and the lives of others.

I think no one has enough wisdom to differentiate every evil thing from good but the Spirit of God in us knows everything. No one can tell the danger that is about to come except God can guide you through all of your difficulties and challenges in life.< Read More +

How do you solve your conflicts? Part 2

        Fasika    |    Aug. 12, 2014    


This is continuation from what we have stoped about how we should resolve marital conflicts.

5. Humility

There is nothing like humility that has the power to destroy every potential fire in a relationship

Humbleness is indeed a great tool to begin and end a conversation with our spouse in peace.

On the other side, if we allow ourselves to be filled with pride, we could definitely lead our marriage in to battle grounds with an outcome of defeat for us and the family in general. Read More +

How do you solve your conflicts? Part 1

        Fasika    |    Aug. 11, 2014    


Conflicts are there and will always be there between you and your spouse. Conflict occurs because there are some common interests you both have and you want to do them in your own ways. Why is it we want to do that? Why can’t we reach to a common decision? It is because our knowledge of the matter is different. The way we see things is different. 


And when it comes to men and women, we both have different perspective. That should not be taken as a disadvantage since we are like that by design so that our spouses see what we don’t see and we see what our spouses don't realize.


Sometimes we may also have a problem because of the violations of the basic principles we have in the beginning i.e. live to love one another and build the respect we have for each other. We all have our own selfish desires that always come in between us and our loved ones that always end up with a conflict. I am just wondering in the place where only Jesus is loved and in the home that only Jesus is the King of the home, how do conflicts happen?&nb 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

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 +

Judge no one, not even your self

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
 

Finding Gods Purpose for our Lives

        tewodros    |    Feb. 16, 2014    



We are not going to spend the rest of our lives with out accomplishing the will of God. Most of us think if God would like to help us, then we want to do his will and stay fruitful to him. But now all we are seeing and smelling is not nice and sweet at all. We know how many times we tried to quit our own ways and start to please God. 

Although we failed and raised many times in the past, we still have hope in God. One day will come for us to understand that we are above our enemies. Our strugle is against the spiritual principalities and the power of the wicked. It shall be broken forever even if it is going to be with bloodshed. Without blood and sacrifices, freedom is unthinkable. Without freedom life is not worthy of living. &nb Read More +

There is Restoration in Christ

        tewodros    |    Feb. 15, 2014    



It is foolishness to think the enemy will arise from flesh and blood. That is to say our enemy is not flesh and blood but it is from the realm of the spiritual darkness and spiritual principalities. But the enemy can use our own flesh and blood to fight us. When we are in a battle, what we need to do is we need to focus on the king.   

If we can manage to take it to the king, the rest is smile. The Bible says, With out first capturing the highest person in authority, we cannot make him release our captivities. 

Remember what David did when the enemy took his wife and family as captivities. He asked God to go after the enemy. God said, "Yes go I will give them to you". Then he went attack and defeat his enemy to take back what is his. God will help you win the battle and restore your family back. &nb Read More +

To Love and to be Loved

        tewodros    |    Feb. 15, 2014    


Have you ever asked yourself one of the most difficult questions? What if they don’t like me any more? What if they gave up on me? What if somebody make them hate me? What should I do to be loved?  

All this questions are of the fleshes. The question we all ask is being wanted and loved by someone who is special to us. We may not find the exact answer for this question. We may not find someone who always loves us no matter what unless the Lord himself loves us through another flesh like us. It is very hard to be in a strong long time relationship.  

But one thing is true. We are not only made of flesh but of the spirit of the Lord. We are spiritual beings and children of God. Our things are not from this world which has a time for everything. We are eternal beings and we are going to partake an everlasting life. There we will no more dread the future and regret the past. There we will be one happy family. No one will accuse his brother of the wrong thing. Hence here we are filled with hope that is real. &nb Read More +

The love and respect for your wife/husband

        tewodros    |    Feb. 7, 2014    



You hypocrite, if you cant honor the covenant you have now, how can you honor God.
If you are treating others with out love in their innocence, what would you do to them when they do mistake? Do you need love or respect? I know now we say we love each other but respect is out of the equation. Do you want to express love in the right way? Then ask yourself the following questions. “Lord, do I ever speak on my own? Do I tend to please others more than you told me to?”

If we tend to do that we beg for your forgiveness. Love your wife and she will have the respect for you. That is to spend some time laughing with her. Love her in Gods way not your way. Every body is tired of selfish love. Where ever we go, there is too much selfish love. It is not pleasing any more.

That is not the only way you can attract her. You want to bring her closer to yourself. Treat her as your wife, part of your flesh. We need to learn from God how to love our wives or husbands and able to express it. The world is able to express their unreal love.
They are good at it to brag about it. But our mouth is shut when we come to expressing our deepest heart felt love. May be we don’t know how to express love each other. We don’t want to act but we don’t want also to hide our feelings for our soul mate.

Which one of us lighten a candle and put the light under the bed? We should show it to the world and it will brighten the darkest lives of those who haven’t found Jesus yet. What is tough now becomes easy latter. What is true now blurred and becomes sin latter. Sometimes resistance also works in the opposite very faster than we think. But let’s focus on the bright side for the time being. I mean we start talking and showing feelings we have for each other. That is something to start with.

We all know there is noting that will separate us. If God is with us nothing is against us. We have to know these things. We have to understand his will for our lives. Then, no evil force can destruct us.

Sometimes we fail to see God’s blessing in front of us. Every chance comes always with responsibility. There is nothing fascinating about it. Look what you have been through right now. This all could be for nothing. We have to be a good channel for God to use us for he will train us and change us as he wishes.

We all need Healing

        tewodros    |    Jan. 6, 2014    



Just like a dream, I have seen when dry land gets water and the widow gets husband. Just like a dream, I have seen when God has listened to our prayer and that thing that really took all our strength gets resolved.

What are we going to do about the sickness of our soul, Lord?

Isnt it for sake of revealing your glory in our lives that we carry it? So take it back if you wish. We have carried it in our soul and our body long enough that we cannot bear the pain no more.

Please help us Lord. We have agonized in pain for so long. Some of us ten years and some even more if not eighteen years Lord.

Isnt this the time to send your son to us and forgive our sins?
Would you help us? We know you also cannot see us suffer no more.
But you still want us to finish our obedience that comes with it.
Yes, we have understood that even one word has the power to take the breath of a person. We have seen in our lives that wrong judgmental words cause us all the misery we have right now.

We are so lucky it doesnt take our lives but we see when it does. One reckless word spoken against our friend will cause us also eternal sin.

Jesus was not exaggerating when he warn us about saying stupid or ignorant to our friend. The reason we are still living after saying those words is because he wants us to repent. don't judge any body on any level. Not even when you encounter true events like a person lies or condemns somebody else or fornication or any other sin.

We think we can handle the problem we have by our selves but the truth is we cant handle anything. The only strength we have on any circumstance of life is because the Lord spirit intervenes in our lives and show us direction. With out it we don't have anything good in us.

We were like a cursed seed - a rotten one. No one expect a good fruit out of a rotten seed, can he? Now, the Lord come to us and breath up on us once more again and say live and be fruitful. Therefore the good fruit we even have or we will have are because of him.
