To Stay Single is GOOD :)

People think when a woman stays single at certain number of age, there’s something wrong with her.

I am very sure that this way of thinking is WRONG!!! WHY?

Because, in this world there’s no one correct ANSWER to this matter.
Why don’t they look and think in a different way, instead of that Unfair and OUT DATED way of thinking.

When they want to look further, they will see that Staying single is a lot better than marrying a WRONG Person. Women are precious so when a woman decided to stay in a man side. The man should feel lucky. WHY? Because that woman wants to dedicate herself to that man, so that woman deserved to be loved instead of being treated badly or regarded as second class.

Marrying the WRONG man means that a woman life will be miserable for good, until she decided to leave him or the man change which is nearly impossible.

Walking through this life by staying single is an advantage and there’s more opportunity to advance a woman life. A woman can live a happy single life of being independent. She will have full control over her own life. She does not have to worry of being scold or beaten by man who said that he is marrying her in the name of love but in fact he treats her like a property. She will have all of the time in her life for herself.

So, this is my message to all women out there, be happy and enjoy your single life. Don’t feel miserable; instead be thankful to GOD for being single and FREE.

I know that GOD loves you and I so much so that He never let us marrying the WRONG man. When the time has come and the Right man is available, I’m very sure that GOD will show us that Right man. After all to get married is to make a Godly family.

Who cares of not being able to have kids in women at certain age, after all we are living in a modern era where technology is in its advance stage, and with that technology it is not impossible not to give birth at certain age.

The main issue is that when a woman gives birth to a child, she should be more concerned if she would be able to give that child a decent family where the child would be able to grow up and be a good person in God’s standard.

So Women, never lower your standard in choosing the right man for you. In other words, never let yourself being fooled by the WRONG man.

Remember that you will be better off of being single rather to marry the WRONG man. Don’t let yourself being trap in an ugly marriage. Be wise by never believing in anything comes out from a man’s mouth but watch closely to what he does instead.

Colours of the Wind

When I listen to this song, I’m moved by its lyric, how much we have thresh the earth, and how often we don’t respect others as people. All the wars and fights happen around the world reminds us that we need to ask ourselves if we have respect others as people. All the natural disasters happen around us reminds us that we need to ask ourselves if we have take care this earth as we should.

We can make this world a better place to live and we also have to remember we only own one earth to live in together in harmony.

Enjoy the song… if you want you can sing it along…

GBU…

Here’s the lyric

You think I’m an ignorant savage
And you’ve been so many places
I guess it must be so
But still I cannot see
If the savage one is me
How can there be so much that you don’t know?
You don’t know …

You think you own whatever land you land on
The Earth is just a dead thing you can claim
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name

You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You’ll learn things you never knew you never knew

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned?
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
Come taste the sunsweet berries of the Earth
Come roll in all the riches all around you
And for once, never wonder what they’re worth

The rainstorm and the river are my brothers
The heron and the otter are my friends
And we are all connected to each other
In a circle, in a hoop that never ends

How high will the sycamore grow?
If you cut it down, then you’ll never know
And you’ll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon

For whether we are white or copper skinned
We need to sing with all the voices of the mountains
We need to paint with all the colors of the wind

You can own the Earth and still
All you’ll own is Earth until
You can paint with all the colors of the wind

I just want to share my own point of view on the story of the birth of the Holy Baby, Jesus Christ. From the bible we learnt that Mary was giving birth to her baby in a manger since there’s no room available in the town of Bethlehem.

When we have a look at the aim on why God let His only begotten Son to be born into this world is to find the lost soul to be saved. I finally find an idea on why Jesus has to be born in a manger. This is to draw a picture of a human heart. Man’s heart is just like the stable, dirty and stinks. We may be easily clean any part of our body from any dirt but we are unable to clean what inside our heart. It’s the only place that left empty, dirty and untouched until we let the holy baby to be born in our heart.

Once the holy baby born in our heart then he will cleanse our heart from the sins. When this happens then the angels in heaven will sing and glorify God’s name.

Upon the gift that are given by the wise man, in my point of view is that when someone has opened up his or her heart for the holy baby to be born then gold is representing as royalty status this means that he or she shall receive a status to be the children of God. Frankincense is used for prayer ritual therefore this is symbolizing as the reconciliation of human and God relationship, while Myrrh in day to day life can be use as one of the ingredients to heal wound. Thus, myrrh is symbolizing that all wound of one’s heart has been cured.

In conclusion, when one would like to clean his or her heart and be cured from all wound then he or she will need to open his or her heart and let the Holy Baby to be born in his or her heart.

Merry Christmas! May the heavenly love and peace fill your empty heart.

Today I’d like to share the sermon of This Sunday morning. The sermon was discussing about Jesus Parable of a Pharisee and a Tax Collector in Luke 18 : 10 – 14:

18:10 “Once there were two men who went up to the Temple to pray: one was a Pharisee, the other a tax collector.

18:11 The Pharisee stood apart by himself and prayed, ‘I thank you, God, that I am not greedy, dishonest, or an adulterer, like everybody else. I thank you that I am not like that tax collector over there.

18:12 I fast two days a week, and I give you one tenth of all my income.’

18:13 But the tax collector stood at a distance and would not even raise his face to heaven, but beat on his breast and said, ‘God, have pity on me, a sinner!’

18:14 I tell you,” said Jesus, “the tax collector, and not the Pharisee, was in the right with God when he went home. For everyone who makes himself great will be humbled, and everyone who humbles himself will be made great.”

In the parable the Pharisee is a picture of a person who looks as if he is an honorable person who has a high spiritual standard. He thought of himself as a good person and better than any body else. He has this idea since he thought that by doing all of his religion rituals have made him a better person than others. Therefore, he thinks that it’s fine to look down on others, since he thought that God must have been satisfied with all the rituals that he has done in accordance to his religion. He is so proud that he thinks he is sinless before God. He also thinks that God will put him right for all the good deeds that he has done.

On the other hand, the tax collector is a picture of a sinful person who seeks for God’s mercy and forgiveness. He humbled himself before God because he realizes that he is a sinful person who needs God’s grace of forgiveness.

At the end of the story, we can see what Jesus has to say about them. He said that God put the tax collector in the right with God and not the Pharisee.

From this parable, we learn that once we know that we are sinner who needs God’s grace of forgiveness. To receive God’s forgiveness, we need to confess our sins to God and repent.

When we do this then God will give us freedom from our sins. Moreover, we will then feel the presence of God in our life and our heart will be filled will a feeling of longing to do God’s will. In the end we will be able to glorified God’s name through our whole life.

One last thing that I can see from this is that as a sinner we need to humble ourselves before God by confessing our sins.

 

God bless you all.

My Jesus

My Jesus, you are the most precious for me.

I will never want to give you up or even to think of exchanging you with anything.

You are the most precious than any jewel.

My Jesus, you are the most beautiful in my life.

In my heart you are the dearest.

In my life I just want to shine for you.

Help me Jesus to always shine for you

Nothing and no one can be compared to you

The beauty of the world will fade

Great and rich people will be gone

Human love will end.

But your love is eternal.

Human love is not unconditional.

But you love me and died for me when I was still a sinner.

You redeem me from my sins.

No one can free me from my sins, but only you.

You touch my heart like no one ever touches me.

Your love is the greatest

Your love is what every heart needs

The day I know you is the happiest day of my life.

Since that’s the day I am healed and freed.

That would be the day that I never want to forget.

In the society, a woman at certain age who has not yet found a husband would be a shame to the woman herself. This kind of society judgment is very dangerous when a woman does not really know about what is right and what is wrong.

What I really mean is that a lot of time, a woman does a lot of foolish things which degraded her own status. I say this thing not because I am being a feminist who is looking for the right to be equal. For me feminism is not important because from the beginning God has created woman equal as man but with different tasks and role. And I write this thing because I just want more women to respect themselves.

To be a woman is a privilege not a curse. Why? Because a woman is the one who can touch others with her tenderness. A woman is gift from God to mankind. She is a mother who gives birth of the next generation. She is a mother who has responsibility to educate children of the future generation. Her love to the children will always be remembered. She is the manager of her family. Her family well-being depends strongly on her wisdom. The future of this world is in the hand of all women. Why? She is the one who determine the success of her husband career and the success of her children life. Can you now see how important and noble the role of a woman. This is the reason to respect and love yourselves. When you do not love and respect yourselves then nobody would do so for you.

A woman does not really need a husband because a woman is created to be the helper of a man. But when as a woman decided to get married it’s the woman who really need to choose to what kind of man she would really want to be with. Don’t just throw yourselves into who ever man available for you just because you are being desperate to get married. Remember the role that you are having is a serious and truly noble. Be wise in choosing the right man to be your husband. Listen and keep alert to any trick of a man who tries to get your heart. You need to consider everything you hear if it’s the truth or just a lie, so that you will never be fooled. Trust fully to the word of God and ignore any persuasion that is too good to be true. Remember that you are precious to GOD. Ignore any statement that degraded your status as a woman. The true love that you are looking for will only be found in God’s love. Remember that you are precious to GOD and GOD loves you. Remember that man is only a sinful human and he is not perfect in anyway including in loving you. Therefore, trust God rather than man if you want to avoid regret.

 

God loves you all.

Why?

Because he has No Sin from the beginning of his life till the end

John 8:46

8:46 Which one of you can prove that I am guilty of sin? If I tell the truth, then why do you not believe me?

No man can prove that Jesus has sin.

Why is this important? Since to free sinful man who is under the punishment of God, freedom will only be able to be provided by the one who has no sin. He is the one with no sin has given his own life to die in sin.

Jesus is the only God man person who qualify to die and wipe away human sin.

John 8:34-36:

8:34 Jesus said to them, “I am telling you the truth: everyone who sins is a slave of sin.

8:35 A slave does not belong to a family permanently, but a son belongs there forever.

8:36 If the Son sets you free, then you will be really free.

No man has ever has this kind of statement like Jesus said

Jesus is the Promise Lamb of God who has died and shed his blood for the sins of the world

Only through Jesus blood and not the blood of the animal sacrifice then human heart will be able to be purify

Hebrew 9

9:1 The first covenant had rules for worship and a man-made place for worship as well.

9:2 A tent was put up, the outer one, which was called the Holy Place. In it were the lampstand and the table with the bread offered to God.

9:3 Behind the second curtain was the tent called the Most Holy Place.

9:4 In it were the gold altar for the burning of incense and the Covenant Box all covered with gold and containing the gold jar with the manna in it, Aaron’s stick that had sprouted leaves, and the two stone tablets with the commandments written on them.

9:5 Above the Box were the winged creatures representing God’s presence, with their wings spread over the place where sins were forgiven. But now is not the time to explain everything in detail.

9:6 This is how those things have been arranged. The priests go into the outer tent every day to perform their duties,

9:7 but only the high priest goes into the inner tent, and he does so only once a year. He takes with him blood which he offers to God on behalf of himself and for the sins which the people have committed without knowing they were sinning.

9:8 The Holy Spirit clearly teaches from all these arrangements that the way into the Most Holy Place has not yet been opened as long as the outer tent still stands.

9:9 This is a symbol which points to the present time. It means that the offerings and animal sacrifices presented to God cannot make the worshiper’s heart perfect,

9:10 since they have to do only with food, drink, and various purification ceremonies. These are all outward rules, which apply only until the time when God will establish the new order.

9:11 But Christ has already come as the High Priest of the good things that are already here. The tent in which he serves is greater and more perfect; it is not a man-made tent, that is, it is not a part of this created world.

9:12 When Christ went through the tent and entered once and for all into the Most Holy Place, he did not take the blood of goats and bulls to offer as a sacrifice; rather, he took his own blood and obtained eternal salvation for us.

9:13 The blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a burnt calf are sprinkled on the people who are ritually unclean, and this purifies them by taking away their ritual impurity.

9:14 Since this is true, how much more is accomplished by the blood of Christ! Through the eternal Spirit he offered himself as a perfect sacrifice to God. His blood will purify our consciences from useless rituals, so that we may serve the living God.

9:15 For this reason Christ is the one who arranges a new covenant, so that those who have been called by God may receive the eternal blessings that God has promised. This can be done because there has been a death which sets people free from the wrongs they did while the first covenant was in effect.

9:16 In the case of a will it is necessary to prove that the person who made it has died,

9:17 for a will means nothing while the person who made it is alive; it goes into effect only after his death.

9:18 That is why even the first covenant went into effect only with the use of blood.

9:19 First, Moses proclaimed to the people all the commandments as set forth in the Law. Then he took the blood of bulls and goats, mixed it with water, and sprinkled it on the book of the Law and all the people, using a sprig of hyssop and some red wool.

9:20 He said, “This is the blood which seals the covenant that God has commanded you to obey.”

9:21 In the same way Moses also sprinkled the blood on the Sacred Tent and over all the things used in worship.

9:22 Indeed, according to the Law almost everything is purified by blood, and sins are forgiven only if blood is poured out.

9:23 Those things, which are copies of the heavenly originals, had to be purified in that way. But the heavenly things themselves require much better sacrifices.

9:24 For Christ did not go into a man-made Holy Place, which was a copy of the real one. He went into heaven itself, where he now appears on our behalf in the presence of God.

9:25 The Jewish high priest goes into the Most Holy Place every year with the blood of an animal. But Christ did not go in to offer himself many times,

9:26 for then he would have had to suffer many times ever since the creation of the world. Instead, now when all ages of time are nearing the end, he has appeared once and for all, to remove sin through the sacrifice of himself.

9:27 Everyone must die once, and after that be judged by God.

9:28 In the same manner Christ also was offered in sacrifice once to take away the sins of many. He will appear a second time, not to deal with sin, but to save those who are waiting for him.

Jesus Christ has risen

1 Chorinthian 15

15:12 Now, since our message is that Christ has been raised from death, how can some of you say that the dead will not be raised to life?

15:13 If that is true, it means that Christ was not raised;

15:14 and if Christ has not been raised from death, then we have nothing to preach and you have nothing to believe.

15:15 More than that, we are shown to be lying about God, because we said that he raised Christ from death–but if it is true that the dead are not raised to life, then he did not raise Christ.

15:16 For if the dead are not raised, neither has Christ been raised.

15:17 And if Christ has not been raised, then your faith is a delusion and you are still lost in your sins.

15:18 It would also mean that the believers in Christ who have died are lost.

15:19 If our hope in Christ is good for this life only and no more, then we deserve more pity than anyone else in all the world.

15:20 But the truth is that Christ has been raised from death, as the guarantee that those who sleep in death will also be raised.

15:21 For just as death came by means of a man, in the same way the rising from death comes by means of a man.

15:22 For just as all people die because of their union with Adam, in the same way all will be raised to life because of their union with Christ.

15:23 But each one will be raised in his proper order: Christ, first of all; then, at the time of his coming, those who belong to him.

15:24 Then the end will come; Christ will overcome all spiritual rulers, authorities, and powers, and will hand over the Kingdom to God the Father.

15:25 For Christ must rule until God defeats all enemies and puts them under his feet.

15:26 The last enemy to be defeated will be death.

15:27 For the scripture says, “God put all things under his feet.” It is clear, of course, that the words “all things” do not include God himself, who puts all things under Christ.

15:28 But when all things have been placed under Christ’s rule, then he himself, the Son, will place himself under God, who placed all things under him; and God will rule completely over all.

Jesus Christ has been ascended to Heaven

Luke24:32-53

24:32 They said to each other, “Wasn’t it like a fire burning in us when he talked to us on the road and explained the Scriptures to us?”

24:33 They got up at once and went back to Jerusalem, where they found the eleven disciples gathered together with the others

24:34 and saying, “The Lord is risen indeed! He has appeared to Simon!”

24:35 The two then explained to them what had happened on the road, and how they had recognized the Lord when he broke the bread.

24:36 While the two were telling them this, suddenly the Lord himself stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.”

24:37 They were terrified, thinking that they were seeing a ghost.

24:38 But he said to them, “Why are you alarmed? Why are these doubts coming up in your minds?

24:39 Look at my hands and my feet, and see that it is I myself. Feel me, and you will know, for a ghost doesn’t have flesh and bones, as you can see I have.”

24:40 He said this and showed them his hands and his feet.

24:41 They still could not believe, they were so full of joy and wonder; so he asked them, “Do you have anything here to eat?”

24:42 They gave him a piece of cooked fish,

24:43 which he took and ate in their presence.

24:44 Then he said to them, “These are the very things I told you about while I was still with you: everything written about me in the Law of Moses, the writings of the prophets, and the Psalms had to come true.”

24:45 Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures,

24:46 and said to them, “This is what is written: the Messiah must suffer and must rise from death three days later,

24:47 and in his name the message about repentance and the forgiveness of sins must be preached to all nations, beginning in Jerusalem.

24:48 You are witnesses of these things.

24:49 And I myself will send upon you what my Father has promised. But you must wait in the city until the power from above comes down upon you.”

24:50 Then he led them out of the city as far as Bethany, where he raised his hands and blessed them.

24:51 As he was blessing them, he departed from them and was taken up into heaven.

24:52 They worshiped him and went back into Jerusalem, filled with great joy,

24:53 and spent all their time in the Temple giving thanks to God.

A compelling question for you and I has also been raise and this is written on Mark 15:34

15:34 At three o’clock Jesus cried out with a loud shout, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” which means, “My God, my God, why did you abandon me?”

Some people thought that this statement is just trying to tell people that Jesus is not God but in fact this is just a question for you and I on how would you respond to God’s grace who let His only begotten son to die in sin that is the sin of you and I so that you and I will be able to be given freedom from the power of sin and an eternal life to live.

If you have doubt in your heart about the truth on what I have written why not trying to find that truth yourself and ask God to show the truth for you by reading his word in the Bible.

I hope this writing will be a blessing.

God loves you all…
