James 1:12 Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. Matthew 5:10-12 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil...
You just jealous cuz I got Jesus.
Hebrews 10:29 “How much more severely do you think a man deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God under foot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified him, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace?” Matthew 10:28 Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both...
"We may well be witnessing New Zealand's darkest...
belasopa: Prime Minister John Key of New Zealand declared the above statement. It breaks my heart to say this, but darkest days are yet to come. Things are going to become much more difficult to handle, digest, and even witness, but they are only going to be the catalyst for Jesus’ Coming!!!
Jesus, without You I am nothing.
I realized right now that the bible keeps me sane.
People are devastated because they hope in things that change. God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? Numbers 23:19 Let’s place hope in the one everlasting, who is eternal, who’s love never fails.

“Whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst.” John 4:14 He who is a believer in Jesus finds enough in his Lord to satisfy him now, and to content him for evermore. The believer is not the man whose days are weary for want of comfort, and whose nights are long from absence of heart-cheering thought, for he finds in religion such a spring of joy, such a fountain of...
“Men are in a restless pursuit after satisfaction in earthly things. They will exhaust themselves in the deceitful delights of sin, and, finding them all to be vanity and emptiness, they will become very perplexed and disappointed. But they will still continue their fruitless search. Though wearied, they still stagger forward under the influence of spiritual madness, and though there is no...
A LOVER’S MESSAGE :) You long to give yourself completely to someone, to have deep and soul relationship with another, to love thoroughly and exclusively, but GOD says… “NO, not until you are satisfied, fulfilled and contented with being loved by ME alone, with giving yourself totally unreservely to me, to having an intensely personal and unique relationship with ME alone, discovering that...
He who seeks to quench his thirst at the fountains of this world will drink only to thirst again. Everywhere men are unsatisfied. They long for something to supply the need of the soul. Only One can meet that want. The need of the world, “The Desire of all nations,” is Christ. The divine grace which He alone can impart, is as living water, purifying, refreshing, and invigorating...
But just as high blood pressure is considered a silent killer in our physical bodies, the silent killer of the gospel is mediocrity. Don’t be satisfied to live under the influence of a spiritual pain killer, accepting the mediocrity of the easiest path and reaching out to no one because you “deserve” a rest. Instead remember, “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly...

The reason many of us are miserable is because we are selfish. When we die to self, we then bear fruits which results in a more abundant life. Our selfishness holds us back from the abundant life Jesus gives.
There is one thing I want to scream out from the bottom of my heart. It is: “JESUS YOU ARE INCREDIBLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! AND HOW GREAT IS YOUR LOVE FOR HUMANITY.” Here… I’ll chime you in on the backstory. It starts off first with my cousin. A 16 year old korean boy raised up in a hostile environment by parents with a rough past of their own. Wanting to escape...
“Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” - Philippians 3:13–14 It may be hard to accept this news but joy is a personal choice. I’d much rather think the opposite - to claim that people...
to die is to gain
How far will you let me go? How abandoned will you let me be?
FIRST: Religious humanists regard the universe as self-existing and not created. SECOND: Humanism believes that man is a part of nature and that he has emerged as a result of a continuous process. THIRD: Holding an organic view of life, humanists find that the traditional dualism of mind and body must be rejected. FOURTH: Humanism recognizes that man’s religious culture and...
