Jesus – The Light & Truth of God

newjerusalemPsalm 43:3:

O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.

David spoke of God’s “light” and “truth” which were to lead him to God’s “holy hill”. What is this light and truth? And what did David mean by holy hill?

The light and truth of God are Jesus and His Word. Notice how this is indicated by the following scriptures:

Light

“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” – John 8:12

“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” – Psalm 119:105

Truth

Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” – John 14:6

“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” – John 17:17

God’s “holy hill” is basically Heaven. Psalm 24:4 talks about ascending to it; and Christians expect to ascend to Heaven at the second coming of Jesus (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; John 14:2-3).

Therefore, it is Jesus and His Word which will lead us to Heaven. If we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior and follow His Word, there will be found a place for us in eternal glory.

Giving Equals Blessings!

PraiseGod

Psalm 41:1, 2:

1. Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.

2. The Lord will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies.

This passage really resonatges with me, because I can relate to it. I remember when I was finishing my 9 year federal prison term. I was a Christian by now. I was in a holding cell, awaiting deportation to Poland. There was a Mexican national with me, awaiting deportation to Mexico.

I had about $270 in my pocket. The Mexican guy mentioned that he had no money for the bus to get from the location of his deportation to his home, which cost $15. I happily gave him the money for his bus ticket.

There are blessings in giving; and I knew that I would need all the divine help that I could get in days ahead. I was getting deported to a country that I knew nearly nothing about. I was born there, but left with my family when I was three years old. However, I’m happy to say that God didn’t let me down.

My deportation took place over two years. Currently, I am the owner of a flat worth over $50,000 and I have a steady income. God is good.

Becoming a Wintess for God

bible-study-banner

Psalm 40:1-3

“1. I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

2. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.

3. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.”

This scripture outlines how someone becomes a witeness for the Lord. First, they pray for deliverance and God saves them. Then they declare the saving grace of God to others, which leads them to salvation.

This really should be the experience of every Christian. If we appreciate the salvation of God, then we won’t be ashamed to tell others about it. However, if we’re not witnessing for the Lord, we may need to re-evaluate our relationship with Him.

Sinning is Not Easy

prayerPsalm 38:1-3:

1. O Lord, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.

2. For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore.

3. There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin.

Sinning is not easy because you must strive with the convicting power of the Holy Spirit. This is what King David was experiencing above. His conscience was burdened.

Having a burdened and guilty conscience is, in essence, the convicting power of the Holy Spirit. This is actually a good thing, believe it or not; because it is designed to get us to recognize our wrongs and repent from them. This way, God can forgive us and we may be restored in our relationship with Him.

What’s not good is if we resist our guilty conscience. Then the force of it dissipates until we no longer feel guilty of sinning. This is what it means to blaspheme the Holy Spirit. This is the unpardonable sin; because God can’t forgive you for what you don’t repent from and confess to Him.

Therefore, the next time you suffer from a guilty conscience, make sure to make amends with God and right your wrongs as soon as possible. Procrastination is a tool of the devil that can cost you your salvation.

Sex Before Marriage and STDs

sex (1)

“Sex Before Marriage and STDs” is the continuation in a series of hubs in which I discuss my life of rebellion, dabbling in the Occult, drugs, crime and prison to life-changing conversion through Jesus Christ. In this hub, I discuss some risks of having sex before marriage, including getting an STD and weakening the sanctity of marriage. I also go into brief detail about some of the more common and dangerous venereal diseases, such as AIDS, herpes, HPV, and hepatitis A and B. Click the blue link or image above to read more.

God is More Powerful than the Illuminati!

illuminati

Ps. 33:10

“The Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.”

I’ve been hearing a lot about secret societies like the Jesuits, Illuminati, Freemasons, etc.; and their plans of world domination and the annihilation of everyone that opposes them.

I rememmber even watching a video about about he RFID chip, and how it was suposed to be used to impliment this plan. The problem with that is, the RFID chip was supposed to be put into use in 2008; and it is now 2013…

I’m not doubting the existence of these groups or their plans of domination or destruction. However, I think it is important to keep in mind that nothing happens without God’s permission. God is more powerful than the Vatican or the Illuminati; and if He doesn’t want their plans to come to fruition, there is nothing they can do about it.

The Standard of God’s Word


bible61

Ps. 33:4

“For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth.”

God’s Word is the standard of what’s right. Too bad that it’s not recognized as so by so much of the World. If it would be held up as the standard that it is, maybe we would have less crime and immorality.

Many people in the world are in darkness. They are raised in families where they are not taught the Word of God. As a result, they are left to judge what is right and wrong to themselves; and that is a very dangerous thing. The reason being is because when lying, stealing and criminal behavior are convenient and lead to financial prosperity, they are easy to justify. And sometimes, doing the right thing does not work to our temporal advantage.

The Scriptures Point to Jesus

bible

Ps 30:3:

“O Lord, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.”

This is a prophetic scripture. The reason I say that is because it points forward to the resurrection of Jesus. There are many scriptures like this in the Bible. Scriptures which touch on Jesus life and ministry, someway. And that is why I am convinced that Jesus is the Messiah of the Bible.

Loving Your Enemies

Jesus said to love your enemies; but that’s not always an easy thing to do. Also, what does that really mean? Does it mean we should warm and fuzzy feelings about them? Or is it more of a matter of our actions towards them? I explain this in this Christian vlog.

Power in the Word of God

bible61

Ps. 29:3-11

“3. The voice of the Lord is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the Lord is upon many waters.

4. The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.

5. The voice of the Lord breaketh the cedars; yea, the Lord breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.

6. He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn.

7. The voice of the Lord divideth the flames of fire.

8. The voice of the Lord shaketh the wilderness; the Lord shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh.

9. The voice of the Lord maketh the hinds to calve, and discovereth the forests: and in his temple doth every one speak of his glory.

10. The Lord sitteth upon the flood; yea, the Lord sitteth King for ever.

11. The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace.”

I find it significant that this Psalm focuses so much on the voice of the Lord and then associates it with God’s ability to strengthen and bless His people. Why is that? Because God’s voice is His Word. And His Word promises strength and blessings upon His people. In other words, there is power in the word of God!
