Slaves again!

– Galatians 4:8-10 –

—-+—-
Formerly, when you did not know God, you were slaves to those who by nature are not gods.

But now that you know God—or rather are known by God—how is it that you are turning back to those weak and miserable forces?

Do you wish to be enslaved by them all over again?

You are observing special days and months and seasons and years!

—-+—-

Be free.

Enjoy Christmas.

Stay in the Spirit of Christ.

Be happy

Enjoy yourself. Every man over forty is responsible for his own face.

Gently and with good Spirit, enjoy your life as a Christian on this Earth.

Smile and laugh and share your ease with Christ – despite the disappointments and injustices of life.

You are Happy.

The happy people.

If Christ really is in your life – you are the happy ones.

You know where to go when trouble comes.

You know how to appreciate company and how to be thankful for the people around you…

…and how to enjoy the beauty of creation…

…and how to be in silence before an awesome God…

…and how to walk lightly toward a sunset without guilt.

So don’t be bowed to the ground by the Bible on your back.

Don’t be constantly worried whether this thing or that thing was done this way or that.

Don’t let being a Christian become worry and stress and anxiety.

Don’t get there and say – I’m so discouraged and unhappy and I just will never be a good enough Christian.

Be happy.

Enjoy life.

Be a Christian and see it through Christian eyes.

Take a happy life back home.

Do your best.

That’s all.

Praise God.

Does Anna have a right to preach…?

– Luke 2:38-39 –
36 There was also a prophet, Anna, the daughter of Penuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was very old; she had lived with her husband seven years after her marriage,
37 and then was a widow until she was eighty-four. She never left the temple but worshiped night and day, fasting and praying.
38 Coming up to them at that very moment, she gave thanks to God and spoke about the child to all who were looking forward to the redemption of Jerusalem.

– 1 Timothy 2:12 –
I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet.

– 1 Corinthians 3:2 –
I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready.

———+——–

– Mark 16: 1-3 –
When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body.
Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb
and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?”

You are not un-clean

Matthew 15:16-20 –

16 Are you still so dull?” Jesus asked them.
17 “Don’t you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body?
18 But the things that come out of a person’s mouth come from the heart, and make them unclean.
19 For out of the heart come evil thoughts—murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.
20 These are what makes a person unclean; but eating with unwashed hands does not make them unclean.”

_____________

The Pharisees and Sadducees were opposed to each other in principles and in conduct; yet they joined against Christ. B

Shut your mouth!

-Matthew 12:36-38-

“But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken.“-

– “For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.”

Wow.

Ok.

Why do we worship God?

We don’t worship God because He needs it, it is because we need it.

When we worship God, we remind ourselves of the power and strength behind us.

“Would I tell you if I was hungry? I own cattle on a thousand hills”.

Choose

– My mother has cancer, she is in a hospital about 2km away from me right now. She is almost guaranteed to never walk again and live a life in pain even if she does survive.

She has never done anything wrong, she has never hurt a living soul and she did everything for me and my little sister, she was truly selfless.

And yet here we are, she will live with pain for the rest of her life if she even survives. If god exists he will have to beg me for forgiveness because of what he has done to my mother, or for what he failed to do when he could have stopped it.

____________________

– Hi there. I am so sorry about your mother. I lost my father and my twin and my brother a while ago, and my mother is now frail.

I am so sorry. You know – everyone is angry with God.

It just doesn’t seem like God cares or is even here.

And honestly if God is there, God is doing a pretty bad job.

I often wonder about – nevermind my loosing the family I have – but others around the world in war or poverty – how would I survive?

At 21, I kinda had a conversation with God.

I just said, OK, I’m tired, I believe you.

That’s my story.

Whether we believe in God or not, which God comes to us, how and why, whether God comes at all, whether God is real or not, we have to live our lives.

It really doesn’t matter what you do. The whole thing is irrelevant.

Heaven or Hell, God or not, it’s irrelevant and then we die.

I hope you find something to hang your life on, that makes you want to get up in the morning, something that gives you the power to love your mum while she is still here, that allows you to have experiences and build a life that you enjoy and is free from anger and regret.

It doesn’t matter what you do. No one cares.

I found that I had to choose to care and to want happiness.

I had to choose it.

I am trying to create my life with my thoughts.

When I spoke to God, God said – ok, I’ll help you with your thoughts.

That’s all.

It still doesn’t matter.

You get to choose. You have the power. Despair and pain and suffering are hoaxes.

It still doesn’t matter.

Choose.

• Rom. 8: 35-39

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?

Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?

– No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God.”

Prophet, be careful!

Everybody wants to be a prophet these days. Shrouded in a cape, staff in hand, highly respected – whispers about the camp.

The anointed. The seer. The selected.

Prophesy however, is subject to God. So what happens when you are sent as a prophet and it works and the people turn from Sin and they are saved?

– Jonah 4 –

But to Jonah this seemed very wrong, and he became angry. 2 He prayed to the Lord, “Isn’t this what I said, Lord, when I was still at home? That is what I tried to forestall by fleeing to Tarshish. I knew that you are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abounding in love, a God who relents from sending calamity. 3 Now, Lord, take away my life, for it is better for me to die than to live.”

4 But the Lord replied, “Is it right for you to be angry?”

5 Jonah had gone out and sat down at a place east of the city. There he made himself a shelter, sat in its shade and waited to see what would happen to the city. 6 Then the Lord God provided a leafy plant and made it grow up over Jonah to give shade for his head to ease his discomfort, and Jonah was very happy about the plant. 7 But at dawn the next day God provided a worm, which chewed the plant so that it withered. 8 When the sun rose, God provided a scorching east wind, and the sun blazed on Jonah’s head so that he grew faint. He wanted to die, and said, “It would be better for me to die than to live.”

9 But God said to Jonah, “Is it right for you to be angry about the plant?”

“It is,” he said. “And I’m so angry I wish I were dead.”

10 But the Lord said, “You have been concerned about this plant, though you did not tend it or make it grow. It sprang up overnight and died overnight. 11 And should I not have concern for the great city of Nineveh, in which there are more than a hundred and twenty thousand people who cannot tell their right hand from their left—and also many animals?”
