Pray, Believe, and You Will Receive

It sound classic and not popular but it’s true. If you have faith you should take an action like pray. Not just praying but we should believe it and we will receive it. That’s the Lord’s Promise.

Psalm 25:14

14The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.

Receive God Promises as ours and act according to the faith.

Jeremiah 33:3

3Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

Just call unto The Lord and tell Him our infirmities. Tell the Lord our financial problems, our pains, our burdens,and every single bad circumstances.
Jesus says : “Call Me, if anything happen to you. Good or Bad, just call Me.”

Luke 11:9

9And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

Luke 11:13

13If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

God is The One who promise and fulfill what He said.  He is a good Father.

Life With Priority

Life is notpriority always following the trend. We have to be able to decide the priority from every chance we’ve got.
Success man is the one who is able to set his life priority in the right way.

I don’t care how tight is our schedule, there is always a way to add something into it. We have to fill it with the big ones first, then add another smaller one.
What is the big one ? The Big One is The Kingdom of the Lord. Give priority to the Kingdom of The Lord.

1. We can not live without priority
Mat 6:24  No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon
Dualism is idolatry, it is conflict. The double minded person will be unstable.
We have to decide what is important (The Kingdom of the Lord) and what is urgent (blessing, success,etc)

Never replace the importance thing to the urgent one. Why, because the urgent thing will never end and they could put us into slavery.

2. First thing First

Mat 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. We have to change the priority for further time.
Luke 16 :9-11
9And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.

10He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.

11If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?


3. Our priority will reveal Who our Lord is.
Philippians 3:19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.

Who’s that man ?

Who’s that man ? That was the thinking of Simon. He had just arrived in Jerusalem after worked from outside town. He came with his children that Friday and intend to celebrate the Passover Feast. He just left their luggages in the inn and start walk arround. “The atmosphere is quite different here, not as calm as Kirene my home town, “thought Simon.  Suddenly there’s  a noise that is not normal. He ran approach to the crowd  and he saw in front of the line, there is a soldier holding a flag marked Iesus Nazarenus, Rex Iudaeorum (Jesus of Nazareth, king of the Jews). Well, I never met Jesus, but I have heard about Him, who hasn’t ? He’s the most controversial figure right now.

But who’s that man actually ? Why people are going mad like this ?They torture Jesus and force Him carry big lodges, it’s about 140 pounds  I think. Simon wondering what kind of person Jesus is that deserve to be treated like that. “He’s bleeding and tired,”thought Simon. He is small, almost muscular. His long hair disheveled, sticky here and there by dried blood coming from the spine arround His head But His eyes, so sharp and strangely, the very soft soothing. I can not loose His eye look that. Full authority, but also very calm and fatherly.

Simon saw people scream at, swear at, and throwing garbage and stones to Him. “Wow..these people are out of control, they scream and spit on Him, it scary..I’d better get out of here, it’s not save for the children,” thought Simon.

But one of the Roman soldier pointed Simon and forced him to carry one of the big lodge. Simon could not refuse it, he was so scared and his children were too. Simon then carried one of the lodge. His children screamed in fear and he saw few native women took care of them. Simon walked behind Jesus, sometime he has to walk in front of Him, because Jesus fell  few times. Jesus did not speak a word, He kept silence but be so close to Him changed Simon. The lodge is heavy it’s obvious, but Simon did not realize the weight anymore. Just be near to Him make Simon feel close and unbelievably changed. His mind, his spirit all have changed in a new condition that really hard to explain.

The journey to the Golgotha hill became the unforgettable journey of Simon.  That journey has impacted him so much. After he carried that lodge to the hill, the Roman soldier sent him to go, but something just made him stay. It’s the eyes of Jesus that looked straight to him, not just into his eyes, but also through his heart and live. Finally in tears he left that hill.

That short experience gave a big differences  in his life. Simon of Kirene received the Christ and not only him, his wife, his children all received the Christ and became very effective believer. His son Rufus became servant of Jesus and Apostle Paul’s brother in Christ. Paul called Simon’s wife as his mother in Christ.

Who’s that Man ? That Man is Jesus, Son of God, Prince of Peace, Lamb of God, Almighty God, Isa, Alpha and Omega, King of King and my Salvation.

Mark 15:21  ; Rm 16:13

The Year of Creative Miracle and Healing

Hello,
Time is running so fast, now we’re entering the 3rd month of 2009. For many people, the year 2009 is a hard year. Crisis are everywhere. Many have lost their jobs. Recently, hundreds of World’s Leaders gathered together in World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. They’re talking about the world’s financial crisis and they concluded that this crisis is the worst crisis that ever happened since December 1933 crisis. In the middle of that, God spoke to my Pastor in Indonesia,” The year of 2009, is the year of Creative Miracles and Healing “.

The word creative is from the word create (barah) that mean to create from nothing to something. Only those who believe in God will survive and experience God’s promises.
This crisis is not intend to rob our money or wealth, but our integrity. Many of us will save our money, our deposits, stocks, and investments first once a crisis happen, but the most important thing to be saved is our integrity.

God is looking for our integrity. Remember Noah? God made a differences among people, because of Noah (Genesis 6:5-8).

Just believe in God, because that is the only way that can saved us from this crisis. Maybe, you think is impossible and irrational, but who says that God is rational ? God is beyond our mind, just believe in Jesus.

The meaning of creative healing is that you will see a miracle that beyond our mind. A blind man can see is not a strange thing anymore, you will see somebody who doesn’t have an eye ball will have one, if you believe. That is a creative miracle, my friend.

God’s Promises

God has many promises for us, but sometime his promises doesn’t completed in our lives. Why it is happening? The only reason I think is that we’re not obeying His Word. He asks only for our obedience.

In Genesis 12: 1-5, we see Abraham took the promise of God to leave his country and his family. He agreed to leave but he took Lot. He obey just a part of God’s Word.

In Genesis 12: 10-20, When Abraham deal with problem (hunger) he ran to Egypt (the world). In Egypt he lied, he said Sarai is not his wife. He exchanged his wife with life’s necessity.

In Genesis 16: 1-4, Abraham listened to his wife more than God, he took Hagar as his concubine. He compromised with sin.

So, to have God’s promises in our live, we should repentance from all our sins. Leave all our violation. We should have the right obedience to God, so we can get benefit from all God’s promises to us.

The Christian Living

Christian living should be different from the world, doesn’t mean that we live like freaks. We still live in the world but we should not adopted the way the world live.

What makes us different ?

1. We live in Jesus. For us, live is a God’s grace. We live in our faith of Jesus Christ that live inside  us. Like Paul says  “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me”.(Galatians 2:20)

2. We move in Jesus. Christianity is a process. We were shaped to love the Lord more than we do right now. it more clearly in  2 Corinthians 12:8-10,  “For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong”.

It is obvious that in our weakness God will give us strength.

3. We’ve been created in Jesus. That means that we’ve been created to pleased the Lord. So, stand up and be the light like Jesus. Like Paul says in Philippians 4:4-7 ” Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus”.

Why do God Bless Us?

God has many reasons to bless us. He’d like us to know that :

1.  We are His sons.

Like what is written in John 1:12 “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:(KJV). God is our Heavenly Father that really pleased to let go and give all what he’s got to us.

2. We realize who is God that we praise and adore.

Our wealth is a blessing from God, that’s why we should put the Lord in the first place in our lives. As King Solomon says in proverbs 10:22 “The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.

3. We could live easier

Like in II Corinthians 8 :7 “Therefore, as ye abound in every thing, in faith, and utterance, and knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love to us, see that ye abound in this grace also.

Many rich people don’t realize of the way they live. They live in stress, fear, and depression. They don’t understand the reason why God bless them. God bless us, so that we could serve the Lord with our wealth.

4. We could live as the way the Bible tell us.

Without we realize, sometime we hurt the Lord’s heart. We live in the way the world live. Ignore the Word of God and intend to forget all His kindness. Proverbs says ” Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain. (proverbs 30:8-9)

5. God equip us with skill

God has bless us with skill, understanding and knowledge to deal with our live. That’s why we should give the best for Him. As the verses say :

1Then wrought Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted man, in whom the LORD put wisdom and understanding to know how to work all manner of work for the service of the sanctuary, according to all that the LORD had commanded.

2And Moses called Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted man, in whose heart the LORD had put wisdom, even every one whose heart stirred him up to come unto the work to do it:

3And they received of Moses all the offering, which the children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of the sanctuary, to make it withal. And they brought yet unto him free offerings every morning.

4And all the wise men, that wrought all the work of the sanctuary, came every man from his work which they made;

5And they spake unto Moses, saying, The people bring much more than enough for the service of the work, which the LORD commanded to make.

6And Moses gave commandment, and they caused it to be proclaimed throughout the camp, saying, Let neither man nor woman make any more work for the offering of the sanctuary. So the people were restrained from bringing.

7For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to make it, and too much. (Exodus 36:1-7)

And the best part of it, is :

6. We could bless others

We have to get out of our “comfort-zone” , we have to get out and be witnesses for others. We could bless others with our wealth and our lives. Like II Corinthians 5:15 says,

“And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again”.
