Victory!

 

Victory

Good day,

Please allow me to say that the English word Victory sounds better than any other language.

Most people like to discuss who won or who was victorious, or who conquered. No one wants to really talk about the looser, they normally keep quiet. It is humanly spoken not nice to be a looser. We as humans, wants to win, not loose. There is something built into us, to win.

But what is the “ultimate” victory? Let’s read winning language!

Read together:

Rev 12:11  And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death. (ESV)

Rom 8:28  And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. (ESV)

Rom 8:37  No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. (ESV)

To conquer something, you need a enemy.

But this is war language? Yes it is. Everyone finds himself in a war each day, a war a

about your soul.

God’s Word indicates the following:

  1. We as reborn Christians conquered satan already, with the blood of Jesus on the cross, where He died for our sins. Jesus did it for us; we did nothing to deserve it. It is grace!
  2. But now the second part. We conquer satan and hell, with our testimony. Our testimony to other lost people in the world, regarding Jesus as our Saviour!
  3. Thirdly, to conquer indicates to us, is to part(to bury) with your old life, and begin a new and dedicated life with Jesus. To boldly go and preach the Word of God to the lost, even knowing that we can die doing it.

To ponder: To sit back and do nothing, would take you nowhere. The ultimate victory is to be with Jesus in heaven, for ever! The losers will be with satan in hell. Time to make a decision…

Victory! Conqueror’s!

Prayer: Dear God, today I want to conquer. Please help me with your Spirit, to light the fire in my heart, to go and spread the gospel of Jesus Christ, our Saviour. I pray this in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour. Amen

Prov 24:11  Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter.

Prov 24:12  If you say, “Behold, we did not know this,” does not He who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not He who keeps watch over your soul know it, and will He not repay man according to his work? (ESV)

If you are not reborn (saved from hell) yet, and want to make this decision today, please pray the following prayer from your heart:

  • Dear God, I come to You today as a sinner, who needs Yor help.
  • I confess my sins before You, as there are many of them. I dont want to continue like this Lord. I want to break with my sins.
  • Lord Jesus, today I accept you as my personal Saviour.
  • I need you King Jesus, come into my heart, and lead me on.
  • I pray this in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, My Savour and Redeemer.

Thìs is the testimony

 

Thìs is the testimony

Hi there,

I believe everyone has got a task to perform in God’s kingdom here on earth.

I believe that everyone wants to do something for God’s kingdom, and hopefully that includes compassion for other people in need.

But I firmly believe, we have a combined task as reborn Christians…, and that is to witness!

I believe no one would like to appear before God’s throne, and tell God that he/she did not know….

I believe no reborn Christian can just stay quiet, about the good news: salvation in Jesus Christ and everlasting life with God in heaven.

….AND IT’S SO EASY!!!!

Let’s read together:

1Jn 5:11  And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

1Jn 5:12  Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.

Did you read carefully: And this is the testimony…!

There is not more to say, as God made it easy for us:

  • God took away the more than 600 laws and bylaws
  • God took away the 10 commandments
  • God took away the slaughter of animals and sacrifices for people’s sins every month, year after year….

Everything has been replaced by just one single message as a witness:

  • God gave us everlasting life if we accept Jesus as our Saviour and Redeemer.., that’s ALL!

Let’s ponder: It is so easy to witness, do you know how? Did you start already? What will you tell God when you appear before His throne?

—————————————————————————————————————-

Prayer: Father God, I want to start to witness today, about salvation in Christ. Help me to commit myself and to go for it! I pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen

EVERYONE!

 

Everyone

In the army, if one recruit did something wrong, all of us were  chased around a tree to be disciplined by the corporal. Next time a recruit did something wrong, everyone were chased up a hill to punish us for poor discipline. There were no grace from the corporal. Everyone were punished, for one recruit who were ill disciplined.

Talking about no end-goal in life!

How are you keeping yourself busy every day?

Read together:

2Cor 5:10  For all of us must appear before Christ, to be judged by him. We will each receive what we deserve, according to everything we have done, good or bad, in our bodily life.

2Cor 5:11  We know what it means to fear the Lord, and so we try to persuade others.(GNB)

God operates a little bit different from that corporal in the army. Everyone, but each one actually separate.

Yes indeed, one day EVERYONE has to appear before Jesus Christ, but each one will be separately be judged.

Everyone will seperately recieve from Christ…., what we have done in the flesh.

But now, the apostle takes THIS MESSAGE  one step further in saying: We know what it means to fear the Lord, and so WE TRY TO PERSUADE OTHERS!

How are you keeping yourself busy every day? You know from God’s Word that you have to appear before the throne of Christ….you alone!

No friends, no brothers or sisters, not with your wife and kids…you alone!

 Paul had the following to say to Timothy:

2Tim 4:1  In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and because he is coming to rule as King, I solemnly urge you

2Tim 4:2  to preach the message, to insist upon proclaiming it (whether the time is right or not), to convince, reproach, and encourage, as you teach with all patience. (GNB)

Everyone of us is called(urged) to take part in spreading the good news about redemption in Jesus Christ.

Think about this: “whether the time is right or not…” It means that anytime is the right time.

 

Everyone!

—————————————————————————————————————-

 

Prayer:

Dear God, today I recognise again: One day, I have to go and appear before the throne of  Jesus Christ. Help me Lord, to come to the conclusion that people have to hear the good message, and to get saved. I pray this in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour.

Amen

KPa

KPa

Please inflate my tyres to 200 KPa…or was it 3 Bar????

As a child, this was what you overheard sitting on the backseat of the car. This was his words, when your father stopped at the filling station to inflate his tires to the desired level.

Never as a child have you thought what this really means.

What your father actually meant was: Pump(infalte) the wheel to 200 KPa, which means 200 Kilo Pascal. KPa means “Compressed Air”

Compressed air in a tyre, means compressing the air to a level more dense than the atmospheric air outside, …..with a tool called a air compressor.

The word Mercy, is written 276 times in the KJV Bible.

Mercy = Compassion in the Hebrew dictionary.

“Compassion” means: the feeling of sorrow and compassion caused by the sufferings and misfortunes of others:

Today, I want to make up my own definition of Compassion.

ComPassion = Compressed Passion = 100 times more!

Read with us:

Joh 15:13  Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.(ESV)

Joh 3:16  “For God so loved the world, that He gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.(ESV)

Today’s question:

  • Friend, ….would you give your own life for your friends?
  • Father, Mother, ….Would you sacrifice(kill) your own child for other people?

The answer is quite simple…No!

God had unending Compressed Passion for us as people doing sin, 100 times more than normal!

God did not want us to end up in hel, so God made His own plan…just for us!

When I rode in the Cape Argus Cycling tournament, I inflated my tyres to between 300-500KPa…to perform better.

How much BURSTING Compressed Passion do you have for other people in need?

My definition:

“Compressed Passion” therefore means: the 100 fold feeling of sorrow and compassion caused by the sufferings and misfortunes of others:

Are your Compressed Passion for others, currently 10Kpa, 100Kpa, 200Kpa…. or will it be the same as my Cape Argus tyres: 500Kpa Compressed Passion?

Sometimes we have to pump ourselfes, ….to perfom better !

We have to force ourselves to perform better, and we need to take drastic measures to do it…it does not happen by itself.

We are made as comfortable beings…not to have compassion for others…me, me!!!

Ask God today, to give you 100 times more Compressed Passion.

—————————————————————————————————————-

 

Prayer:

Almigthy Father God. I ask for your help.

I want to increase my compassion a 100 times more than it is now.

I need you Lord.

I pray this in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ of Nasareth.

Amen

Glorified

 

Glorified

 

Have you ever heard a saying about the word “glorified”….

Example: A certain mayor of a town, does not actually have the qualifications to do the job, but he was put there by somebody who likes him. He is then portrayed by other people who does not like this situation,… as a glorified mayor. Someone who recieved the position, ….but did not deserve it.

Do you know that we as reborn Christians are actually also “glorified”…

We have been placed in a position, that we do not dererve. We have been glorified!

Read with me:

Rom 8:28  And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Rom 8:29  For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Rom 8:30  Moreover whom He did predestinate, them He also called: and whom He called, them He also justified: and whom He justified, them He also glorified. (KJV)

Do you really know how much God loves you as reborn Christian?

We are being placed in a position similar to Jesus on the throne, by God. We are conformed to the image of Jesus,…to be God’s children.

This is love, GREAT LOVE!

So,… every morning you wake up, you should know this as reborn Christian:

I am glorified!

Take note:

This is not going to happen someday in the future, it is done already!

You are ALREADY glorified (lifted up, conformed). God has put you in that position!

Just as that mayor did not dererve it, so do you. But God thought highly of you as a reborn Christian…to lift you up…to GLORIFY you!

Wow! This is LOVE!….. I am Glorified!

God wants to save everyone in this world. (1Tim2:1-4)  Did you make the decision yet, …to get reborned?

—————————————————————————————————————-

Prayer:

Almigthy Father God. How great is your love?. We as little children in this world, have been glorified by you, by your Son Jesus Christ. How awesome! Thank you God. We praise your Name, be exalted Father God!

We pray this in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ

Amen

Julle is…

Julle is…

 

Julle is….partykeer as mens hierdie woorde hoor voor-aan ‘n sinsnede, dan verwag ons mos as mens, om minder goeie woorde te hoor vanaf mense…

In hierdie wêreld deesdae, het baie min mense goeie goed om van ander te sê.

Die reël is: Slegs as jy die dag begrawe word, dan word daar goeie goed oor jou gepraat…

 

In baie klein gevalle, praat mense goed van ander.

Mens is geskape om te floreer op goeie woorde wat ander van jou sê, …nié slegte goed nie.

 

Maar daar is darem goeie woorde ook, en dis lekker om goeie goed te hoor van jouself.

Vir weergebore gelowiges in onse Here Jesus, sê God die volgende vir ons uit Sy Woord, en jy sal floreer op hiérdie woorde.

 

Julle is….

 

Lees saam:

1Pet 2:9  Maar julle is ‘n uitverkore geslag, ‘n koninklike priesterdom, ‘n heilige volk, ‘n volk as eiendom verkry, om te verkondig die deugde van Hom wat julle uit die duisternis geroep het tot sy wonderbare lig,

1Pet 2:10  julle wat vroeër geen volk was nie, maar nou die volk van God is; aan wie toe geen barmhartigheid bewys is nie, maar nou bewys is.

 

Kosbare, kosbare woorde vanaf ons Pa in die hemel. Dis woorde hierdie wat jou sal laat maak dat jy jou kop oplig en met ‘n glimlag die lewe aanpak.

 

Daar is wél iets wat ek vandag wil uitlig. God vra ook vir ons: Ons moet Sy goedheid gaan verkondig aan AL die mense in die duisternis.

 

Watter goedheid?

Daardie goedheid om Sy eie Seun, Jesus Christus te laat afklim van Sy heilige troon af, Hom mens te maak op aarde, Hom te laat ly deur met swepe geslaan te word, en Hom aan die kruis vir ons te laat sterf, sodat ALMAL Sy koninklike priestersdom kán word.

 

Ja ons as weergebore Christene IS ALLES wat God ons in daardie verse laat lees…maar het jy al gaan vertel van?

 

Julle is….

 

Ander verlore mense wil ook eendag kan sê. “Ons is…”

 

—————————————————————————————————————-

 

 

 

 

Gebed:

Almagtige God, Ek wil gaan vertel van “Julle is….”

Dankie vir U wat barmhartig teenoor ons was en is.

Ek dank U in Jesus Christus se kosbare Naam.

Amen

 

Is JY reg vir die Stryd ?

Groetnis, Hein (versprei asb die boodskap)

Spr 24:11Red die wat na die dood gesleep word, en die wat na die slagbank wankel, hou hulle tog terug!As jy sê: Kyk, ons het dit nie geweet nie! —sal Hy wat die harte toets, dit nie merk nie?En Hy wat let op jou siel, Hy kom dit te wete. En Hy vergeld die mens na sy werk.

————————————————————————————————————-

As jy nog nie weergebore is nie, BID die volgende opreg UIT JOU HART uit:

  • Here God, ek erken dat ek ’n sondaar is wat U hulp nodig      het.
  • Ek bely my sondes voor U, want daar is baie. Ek WIL NIE so      aangaan nie Here, en ek wil breek met my sondes.
  • Jesus, ek aanvaar U nou as my Verlosser.
  • Ek het U nodig Koning Jesus, …kom woon asseblief in      my hart, en lei my vorentoe.
  • Ek bid en vra dit in die Naam van Jesus Christus van Nasaret, my      Verlosser en Middelaar.

Amen
