1  Fellowship / Testimonies / my hobby on: January 27, 2010, 04:40:43 AM
Psalm 84:10 For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.



Hoby was not released from the mood. Joy,
tranquility and satisfaction is a reflection of the atmosphere
a good heart. Sense of optimism is another,
either because we can do good hobby.

There are some people who are willing to pay the price
very- very expensive for hobby. For example a stamp
can sold millions of dollars bought by the
a stamp collecting hobby. A antique bicycle can
sold a hundreds of millions because was bought by a person who have a hobby
of collecting bicycles.

The answer was often uttered by people who buy
these antiques because heart satisfaction which
can not be replaced with billions of money.

Well all because of heartís satisfied. When our hearts are satisfied then
the dimensions of our minds will lead to something
large. It was just me
have it. Only me who can feel it.

Now let us see the result of a hobby of reading and meditate
God's Word. God comes not alone.
God is present with a presence. Presence of God
is a dimension of heaven that we can feel. Dimension of heaven is real and it will lead us to
hearts and minds of satisfaction that is not limited. We do not
could say a word when we see the dimensions of
heaven. We are amazed and under the authority of God.
So that the presence of it will make us feel and didnít want
to move from our place. We want forever in that
place.

When we are often and routinely every day to read and meditate a
God's Word then we really are inviting
Jesus to come to our place together with His
presence. Perhaps one time we doesnít feel. But
many times will lead us to recognize Him with
closer. Because we often do so would
allows us to feel His presence. Any more for anything and everything
in This world but firstly we still miss HIS presence. Because
Presence that will open our eyes to heaven.
So important that we make reading
and meditating God's Word as a hobby.

Do you already feel the presence of God?
So make this activity as your hobby! Gbu

2  Theology / Bible Study / The True Encounter with God on: January 20, 2010, 12:32:14 AM
Psalm 63:1-4

63:1 O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
63:2 To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
63:3 Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
63:4 Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.

Experience feelings of falling in love is also experiencing longing to meet someone. When we can meet the opposite sex and trying to know each other then the feeling of falling in love is very possible occurred. We can't love an artist or actors who we can't meet. For that condition We are just the fans only.

When we met with our beloved then surely we talk to express our longing to
him/her. Especially if for the long time we doesít meet him / her. it going was very impressive when the encounter occurred. We created by God with a feeling of love. Both love to our neighbor and love of God. We also often are in very deep longing situations.

David is a man who has a depth feelings of love to the Lord. He stated his longing to meet manifestly with God with a poems in the book of psalms. David encounter with God. Encounter not only in the realm of fantasy. But It is a real encounter. That is why David had a right true love and longing for God and David channeling longing that by coming to the temple and holy offerings.

Similarly with us! We could not have true love to God if we are not experience a real encounter with God. Did you remember ,when you met with God? When did your heart be touched by God? When did you
declare your love to God?. God first previously expressed his love for us. Each day God also meet with you privatly. And the most importantly that God really ready to be found by us whenever we want. We must meet with the Lord as well as meet our beloved, a real encounter!

Today, let we express our love for God.
Let we met HIM. Express your feelings to Him like when you meet with your beloved and feel the warmth of His love come to all of us .


Jesus saved my life
Jesus save me

3  Theology / Bible Study / give your thanks to the lord!!! on: January 19, 2010, 04:35:32 AM
17:17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?

When we meet with God then we will met with His miracles. Miracle of God beyond reason and our minds. An example of when we got up early so We could not think how our heart still beating. When we work we meet with our neighbors and certainly encounter ,some we do not plan. When we See our neighbor is means to see God. Because Jesus clearly identify himself with our fellow human beings. He could be a poor people who have no clothes etc.. God also works through our neighbor. When we ill, a friend who visited us, when we have a trouble then that comfort us.

Matthew 25:35-36
25:35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
25:36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

Overall It is the work of God for the good of our lives.

Some people affected by leprosy came to Jesus. Leprosy at that time was a pain that is not healed. Expectations of these people are die with no respect. But a miracle happened. The incredible healing was done when they met with Jesus. Encounter with the Lord Jesus should be an extraordinary event in our life. Likewise, the lepers were. They should have experienced a remarkable change from that situation. Not just from leprosy and be cured only. But more than that. They should experience life as a human perfection who was saved by faith because his believing faith to God.

1 person from the ten lepers are experiencing extraordinary meeting with Jesus. He turned away from his way to the temple. He met with Jesus for the second time. Jesus told that her faith has been saved him. He certainly saved both on earth and in heaven. What distinguishes between that person with the other 9 lepers?

The difference is 'thank you' that he sincerely given to the Lord Jesus.

That person know what it means thank you! He also knows how the way to thank you! In other words that the person has the ethics of heaven!

God judges every thank you that we prayed to Him. That does not mean that God commands us to say Thank you to Him. But that He look of our own initiative. Remember! That person have a initiative to come back to Jesus. What a wonderful thing that would make the heart Jesus was touched. We must have ethics heavenly. Every day God gives us miracles. Every day we even met HIM. But, do our hearts also met with HIM ? This is very important for us.

When we encounter people who have helped us and repay good deeds with the love of God, when we also care about our neighbor who was suffered, as we continue to praise and glorify name, as we continue to pray and hope that only to Jesus, when we do His will so We're really say thank you to God.

Today do we say thank you HIM?
God miss HIS children have a Heavenly ethics. And when we have it then the beautiful voice will sound in our ears. That is: thy faith hath made thee whole.

Say that :
Jesus saved my life
Jesus save me
Jesus love everything about me
Jesus care my soul

5  Fellowship / Testimonies / Do not leave the House Bread !! on: January 18, 2010, 03:19:05 AM
Do not leave the House Bread

When we're away from God verily we're away the blessing of God, and when we're closer to God indeed, we are approaching the blessing of God. Worship, ministry,praying and praising God, and attention to our neighbor who is image of God is an attempt to draw near to God. But need we realize that firstly God Jesus opened the way to us to draw near to the Father in heaven. And Jesus referred to as the door to get to kingdom of heaven

John 10:9
"I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find Pasture. "

Pasture not only describe Heaven which we will live in there but also describes the abundance or a blessing we receive in this world. Abundance of grace that it can be of health, God's wisdom, wealth material, a good friend of faith, etc..
We referred to as the sheep and Jesus is our Good Shepherd. So that when we think
Jesus commands, the road to blessing God will open wide

Ruth
4:14 ďAnd the women said unto Naomi,Blessed be the LORD, which hath not left thee this day without a Kinsman, that his name may be famous in IsraelĒ

Naomi is the picture of a women who have been away from God since Naomi left Israel and go to Moab. Israel is a picture from the source or house blessing bread because there are the true with His blessing God in Israel even at that time the nation Israel suffered drought. When Naomi away from God then Naomi lost a lot of blessings. Initially Naomi brings a lot of food or thanks to before leaving Israel. But long provisions that would eventually run out. So We also initially took a very so many blessings from God but when we leave God so long then long provisions the blessing would eventually run out and we will again be a human being drought. Naomi had the misfortune when she was in the land of Moab. She lost of two her son and her husband and this makes Naomi decided to return to Israel.Naomi has not got anything else.
Naomi was a sincere and consider the future of the two daughter in law. So she was willing for the two daughters in law to marry again to their descendants. However, one of Ruth the Moab is a sincere woman. Ruth willing to help Naomi walked together into the countryIsrael.

Ruth was willing to sacrifice for no back to Moab and married to the front. We know that the end of the This story is happiness. Ruth get a husband who is a employers are very wealthy. That is Boaz. And of their lineage King David was born and eventually also birth of our Savior Jesus Christ the Lord and our God.

What we can learn from this story?
The core of this story is sincerity heart. When we have a heart sincere and well then it is the way our opening to the house of bread. Ruth sincere in helping in-law Naomi
Naomi was so sincere in the help daughter in law Ruth. Naomi with sincere help Ruth to be married with Boaz. Similarly Ruth,Naomi sincere help in the get food in Israel. Naomi also sincerely acknowledged that Israel and God's power is the house of bread and the source of blessing. This proved with Naomi's return to Israel from Moab. God sees our sincerity.
How sincerely us to closer to God?

we often hear that God is source of blessing and places or the presence of
God is the home of the bread of life. Do not leave the house of bread! Even today we are experiencing trouble. We must have a sincerely heart. Because if God is rightstill reigned over our lives so the bread of life or the source of blessing
will continue to flow in our lives .

Conditions to win
Relevation 2:7

"He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God."

A soldier who is ready to fight will have victory if he heard and do the orders from the boss. Although at the time the soldier experienced problems in the household, or he was a sleep in the middle of the night. But If the commander ordered to duty him so he had to leave and leave everything his problem. Hearing voices of the commander is required, because the voices contains a strategy of war that must be done and with the strategies A good war is the determinant of success for the soldiers for the war.

Jesus is the commander of our lives and we are His soldier. God is equipping us with the HIS armor.

Ephesians 6:13-17
6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
6:14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
6:15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

Weapons that we have accepted it is weapons which ready for use and will be useful if we know how to use it. God as only our commander wants us to win. He miss all His children want to hear HIS voice. Because by listening to His voice then the weapons that we have ,we can use its full potential. This becomes a formula should be noted that we win. God's voice contains a good war strategy
which would result in victory if we use. The voice of God is real and not a shadow. We must be ready like a soldier who is ready day and night to carry out tasks. Maybe God will speak to us when we are not ready, maybe also at times we fall asleep, or maybe when we are experiencing problems in our lives. So listen to good sound. Do it afraid and undaunted will of God will and make sure of victory with us. Also uninstall all the personal power that we have and replace it with the power of God who derived from HIS voice and make sure that the victory of sustainability will be mine. Gbu

8  Fellowship / Testimonies / Known by God on: January 16, 2010, 02:40:22 AM
Matthew 7:21
7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.



Christianity is not religion, because being a Christian means to be followers of Christ. Deeds and behavior should be like Jesus. Jesus himself teaches us about perfect life. Therefore, in his word in Matthew 5:48 says

5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Perfection of life means we have the most holy faith (Jude: 1
1:20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,) and The most holy faith must build through the life which rooted in Christ.

At the time Jesus came into the world, Jesus did not focus His doctrine of salvation only to those who understand the words of God (the scribes). Jesus came for sinners. Jesus came to fulfilled the law. So we are no longer bound by the law but free from the snare of sin and death. This is indirectly a pledge that the only people who know Jesus and make His will be known by Jesus. Although that person is not an Israeli or scribes or even a high official. Only someone who have faith and be accompanied by deeds or the reading His Word and do His word will is called is called as a heir of kingdom of heaven. Beyond that, Jesus did not know them even if they shout loudly His name as if to know Him

We have Jesus again emphasized to us that we seeks to truly know Him. Arrival Jesus in the second time was near. And has appeared said that Jesus did not see our religious identity. Jesus did not see our offices. Perhaps our office is a priest or a prayer or a servant of God. Maybe our positions are too Christian for 15 years, or religious teachers. But if we do not act reflects the love of Christ and no effort from us to know Him, then surely the Lord Jesus did not
will know us as well.

Matthew 7:22-23
7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

And even if we are not Christians but we trying to know Him and do His will, then
Lord Jesus must have known us

Matthew 7:24
7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

The church not only serves as a means just place of worship and praying .The Church is the means we encounter with Jesus. If we have a business to know Him, we must have a business to meet with him. As we in church so we can choose 2 status is:
1. As someone who the status religion is Christian
2. As citizens of the kingdom of heaven

As someone who the status religion is Christian

As someone who the status religion is Christian the church just mere formality as a duty and an obligation to worship. My duty is to pray and worship at sunday. If not worship so I will not be referred to as theChristian. Maybe if I did not enter the church I would scolded by parents, neighbors left and right will seen as a holy man when I came to church or maybe I'm falling in love with a girl in that church so I had to come to that church on Sunday weeks .. People who like this didnít know by God. Word of God delivered through the pulpit the church was not well received and he was only met with church members only. Humans only met with people in the church. What is gained? Of course he did not get anything. Living water flow not flows in the life and light of God Jesus does not shine in his heart. Her life was in the dark so that the Lord Jesus did not know him though he had to the church. People who like this must change ways of thinking and lifestyle. There should turn away from sin then the light of Christ will shine again in his heart. So he will met as real with God Jesus


As citizens of the kingdom of heaven then Church is the source of from our desire to meet with the Lord Jesus.During the 6 days we work and on Sunday we really love to meet with HIs
love. We did not meet with the pastor or the congregation. But we meet with God, listening to His words. Praise we sing really become forces that fill our spirits. Longing grew
strong when we listen HIS word. We can receive Word of God and we can make it as a Rhema in our lives. Church is not a place anymore but it is our encounter with God which has formed in our heart and manifested in our behavior and our lives daily. Jesus has promised us that He is not only provide water to our lives but He made us a source of true water of life:

John: 4
4:14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

Of course for these people then God has known him. God pleased to continue His work through HIS children who are citizens of the kingdom of heaven. And certainly our lives
will emit His magical light that has destroy the darkness in our hearts and radiated out through the darkness around us. Eventually later the second coming of Jesus, time which
so we would miss it .Jesus Christ the King still knows us and we will inherit the kingdom
HIS paradise filled with love and kindness.

Say that
Jesus Love me
Jesus care everything about you
Jesus saved my life
Jesus save me

9  Fellowship / Testimonies / Rejoice because of God on: January 15, 2010, 07:14:16 AM
Psalm 37:4 Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

Our first reaction when getting a big gift is rejoice. We rejoice as if only we are luckiest person in the world. We do not care about things that smelled "death" bit at that time. When we rejoice, there is a life force that makes our step lives successful .. Rejoice is an extraordinary thing.Therefore for many times we hear a lot of successful motivator recommend to have rejoice every day.And sure that a lot of successful people begin His success with "rejoice".

The Bible notes that the importance of the "rejoice" is in our lives.

Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

But before heading to the sentence, then we will see that in the book of psalms 37 has started with recommendations to us not to envy and anger to the person whose life is a success due to cheating. Psalmist seems trapped in a situation or environment of people like that.

37:1 Of David. Do not be angry because people who do evil, do not envy the people who cheat;

As human beings who have never lived apart from a problem, we often experience things that make our rejoice extinguished. Perhaps we had fooled, we also must have been ill or may be wrong in choosing a product. But the biblical encourages us to rejoice in that situation. This is something strange? It is impossible because our true joy can emerge if we have problems.When there is a problem then obviously we have to think to solve the problem. Rejoice time is over and replaced with a serious time. This raises a question, what is meant by "Delight thyself also in the Lord?"

When referring to The Bible then rejoice is based on the 2 things, namely:
1. Rejoice based on the World
2. Rejoice based on God

Rejoice based on the world is based on world things. Like get a material reward but forget to give thanks to God or it could be because of something as innocent as getting money from the fraud, etc.. Rejoice because of the world is temporary because of something that is not eternal world and can run out. The world does not know God and the His children (1 John 3:1). So that when we rejoice to the world there will be no thanksgiving to God. The rejoice can turn into hatred, envy and arrogance that often is. Remember that the world is ruled by the devil. So that the direction of the rejoice that is the destruction of man himself. For example, if we often rejoice in the debauchery then surely our lives surely be destroyed. Destroyed by free sex or drugs, destroyed also because we became lazy etc.. Another example is if we are happy to have the prize money so much but we do not recognize that it is a blessing of God then our tendency is to spend money easily or ambition to get something bigger. Of course it will make us forget ourselves and sin will soon control our lives.

Rejoice based on God is based for rejoice because God's blessing. Every day we can breathe, we can eat and drink, we also can speak, hear, or walk it all the blessings and grace of God. But the important thing is we live and breathe and be able to enjoy the presence of God then it is a blessing and a beautiful gift. Of this there is no reason for us not to rejoice. God always devote real blessing every day. But sometimes that our views are often focused on the problem. Though our lives may have a lot of debt, even we can to eat and sleep maybe we're sick. But if we direct our hearts to rejoice because God the God's work will soon happen in our lives.

say that :

Jesus love me
Jesus care everything about You
Jesus save me
Jesus saved my life
