The Assault

28/07/2010
After several weeks in search of employment, desperation has become a black hole in my soul. Dark thoughts, showing paths for closed doors. There were only temporary circumstances, but, dead philosophies being hammered and thrown in mind. The voice of truth once, away from my face. A face cast down, destroyed by an enemy voice, which was fueling the doubts in a quiet life. The folly made me look for alternatives quickly, however, risky! After losing all sense of danger, decided to commit my first armed robbery:
That evening of Tuesday, had bought a gun with a former childhood friend, where I lived in the town of Despair. I started asking questions of how to use it there because they had no previous experience.

-Answer me fast! Destructive how do I shoot the first shot?
-TORMENTED-is this: You will reload the gun with bullets DEATH, then pull the trigger for the FEAR, you then run it all to form the Sorrow. This is the recipe!
-I will roam the streets of cities to achieve something! Thanks for the tip Destructive!

TORMENTED began his first walk on the streets of DESPAIR...

-What place is this friend? So many books on these shelves!
-Here is a library. Responded FAITHFUL SERVANT
-There are many books, old and new in our store! Something interest you?

TORMENTED then asked:

-Before you comment, I know your name?
-Yes of course!  FAITHFUL SERVANT

Right now, tormented looked around the store with the purpose to incriminate the faithful servant. FAITHFUL SERVANT became suspicious of his presence, and soon later, tormented announced the robbery.

-Pass-everything is everything! All these books, put inside a bag and go without talking, without complaint! Otherwise, you will die! I learned that there is a book here that is worth a lot! It is this situation that I want to win!

FAITHFUL SERVANT, had no reaction, except to pass all the books for the tormented. TORMENTED After having performed the assault, the unexpected happens ... After reading some books that just steal, tormented surprised in a book called THE BOOK OF LIFE. In it, the works that were done in his life, including what had just implemented:

“And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.”(Revelation 20:12)

At this very moment ... There are sighs of Brian in his bed when he woke up: "My Lord, forgive me for not having lived it! Thanks for the vision I had in my dream, I am a hypocrite, I need your mercy!

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”(John 10:10)

Brian was warned by God in his dream, a path on which he could walk.
Which way of life, are you taking?

“A wicked man hardeneth his face: but as for the upright, he directeth his way.”  (Proverbs 21:29)

Psalm 23

25/06/2010
                             Security & Trust
Psalm 23 starts and driving directly to the Lord, the main supplier of all things: "The Lord is my shepherd and I shall not want." Verse very well known among believers and nonbelievers, but little practiced as the only truth in life. Let God be your landlord, a single dependency, not only in times of distress or material blessing, but, regardless of circumstances, as an inexhaustible source of life and care. Let God be our pastor is, above all, trust in someone that no one can stop. It's like being  in an immovable rock. Romans 14:8 sums up our total dependence on God: "For if we live, live to the Lord if we die, we die unto the Lord. So that, or we live or die, we are the Lord."

In the second verse, "He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters." David continues to direct your life to the Lord, showing that it rests securely.  For many trust is something momentary, while for others it becomes unthinkable. There are desperate situations in our lives where we lose our faith! We can do the kind of "super Christians" but we know that we are limited, and we reload our forces with the word of God. This is the secret for not losing faith. "And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us because we perish. And he said unto them, that fear, ye of little faith? "(Matthew 8:25-26a)

In Matthew 7:24-25 the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus says: "Everyone therefore who hears these words of mine and doeth them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house upon the rock; And the rain descended, and ran rivers and the winds blew and beat upon that house, not fall, because it was built on the ROCK. "If each day we are edified by the word, even if the fear comes, we'll be ready to say "He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside the still waters."

In the third verse says: "He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake." You at some point in his life felt weak? Or even thought about giving up by not having more troops? Who has not experienced it? Jesus Christ, was sad before he was arrested, but not to the point of being weakened spiritually: "My soul is deeply saddened, a sadness mortal ..." (Matthew 26:38 a). When we are really sad or weakened spiritually beseech God with sighs too deep, according to the Holy Spirit. When this happens God, with your immense love, pour your mercy, stirring up our minds, through his grace. It's like being inside a well, asking for help to save someone until you get a helping hand throwing a rope to help you. This rope, for we who are believers, has been thrown on the cross of Calvary.

The fourth verse is a confirmation of the previous verse, because the righteousness of God is with David, even in times of tribulations: "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me." The hand of God is on our side, so we walk with Him every day, without fearing any fear. When the adversity begin to rise it's time to put into practice what he learned: The word! It is these moments that we must be strong and not return to the path of disbelief. A practical example: Imagine yourself walking on a street where it is stopped by a thief trying to steal it, even if you have no money or belongings. This situation, which could have several consequences, can only be a proof in our lives. But above all, we must be confident in the Lord "for thou art with me: thy rod and thy staff they comfort me."

In the fifth verse David, by faith, the victory thanks to God, asking for a spiritual feast in the presence of his enemies: "Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over." Hallelujah! What joy! So many times we were accused, but we know he gives us the victory and the place of honor.

In the last verse he confirms the righteousness of God through his mercy and grace: "Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever." The victory has been won by David on his final journey, for he dwelt in the house of the Lord for long days. We Christians will pass in a transformation, gaining a glorified body, which will have no pain or sorrow. Thus, after many battles, tears, some trajectories reconstructed, we will dwell in the house of the Lord, winning the crown of eternity at the hands of Jesus Christ!"Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. "(Revelation 4:11)

The miracle

05/06/2010
Should not have happened to me, but it happened! Many believe that, I would not have experienced the beginning of my life as a principle which had hitherto not understood. It is difficult, but I will try to know. Has no solution! I'm very different from many people. That year of 1963 became a path through dark in my eyes, it formed a dark issued from the womb of my mother. Even newly born, the doctors spoke when I welcomed my mother:

-Prepare yourself, your daughter will not live long! This bleeding is that it is a precedent that eventually passed to his belly. Like I said, you better get ready!
Look at his face and hands, will not stop bleeding! Mother I'm sorry, but this is reality. His daughter, for the rest of life will carry this "heavy burden" on his body. The problem it has no cure, therefore, is the most serious of all I've ever encountered:

-Prepare yourself, your daughter will not live long! This bleeding is that it is a precedent that eventually passed to his belly. Like I said, get ready!

My mother with her face down, crying and saying

"But doctor, I will not let my daughter die! I'll try to do everything possible for her to be healed.
I believe in something up there that can help me! Only God can help her not to die!

Well, Mom, I ... I think it's impossible in my eyes, but if you speak with such certainty, go ahead!
Doctor, God allowed my daughter was born with this bleeding, whether it be evil or not, is that His name be glorified! Well, who gave it was God. And to Him be all honor and glory: "For if we live, live to the Lord if we die, we die unto the Lord. So that, or we live or die, we are the Lord." (Romans 14: 8)

My twelve years were difficult for me, but my mother and father did not never lost hope that one day Jesus could change these long years, which to me would be many years, most terrifying of my life ...

In 1975, my mother had a dream in which Jesus said to him:

"If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you."(John 15:7)

"And, behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue: and he fell down at Jesus' feet, and besought him that he would come into his house: For he had one only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she lay a dying. But as he went the people thronged him.  And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any"...(Luke 8:41-43) And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth. (Mark 5:39) And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise. (Mark 5:41)

In the twelve years of age ... It was that year that I became a true Christian, when accepted an invitation from my parents to go to church. From that moment on, the dream became reality. Well, God was telling my mother that one day he had done in my life! "Only one who asks receives, only those looking to find." "What we asked for, the doors opened" I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice and opens the door, go into your house, and will sup with him, and he with me. " (Apocalypse 3: 20

The Rapture

19/05/2010
"Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come." (Matthew 24: -42)
Jack and Paul live on a farm for almost 33 years. They came from a humble family in the state of New ELANs, there are about seven years. Jack has always dedicated his life to the field and cattle, but never stopped to gather Sunday services. When there were opportunities, he was in meetings trying every day to the Lord's wisdom. Already Paul, knowing where his older brother Jack, was a boy who always liked Alcira binge at the weekend, not even lost their festivals.
Paul was born in Christian home knowing the word of God, however, did not follow the footsteps of the Lord like his older brother. Paul was very rare and Jack go to meetings together as children. Paul would like an obligation imposed by his parents who always gave him the choice to tread the ways of the Lord.
Jack early on, learned from her parents, always pray together thanking the precious life that Jesus had given him. Always dedicated to the brothers of the church, leaving aside his younger brother. Jack did not forget Paul, not even during classes. Jack in the range of college, sitting at her desk, pleading to God for the life of his brother for a real conversion. Paul takes one of his invitations to go to church on Sunday. Jack felt the act of God at that moment. When they arrived at the church, Paul was not feeling very well. He asked to return to his home, because something strange was happening:
 "Jack, I know that I accepted his invitation, but I'm not feeling well here. Something tells me to go home!
Jack replied:
Paul-what is keeping you well? Makes few seconds we got to church. Are the songs of praise that you are not enjoying?
"Jack, I'm sorry, but I'd rather go to the binge that weekend, they are more attractive. These songs I only liked when we were kids. Today I think my life is another, I have done my role as a Christian!
Jack at the time, just lowered his head, and with songs that were being sung began praying to God for his brother. Past minutes, starts preaching of salvation:
-My brothers, is already past the hour and the time we live in, there's nothing we can do for our own salvation, only Christ is the solution! Repent while you can seek the Lord!
"Seek the LORD while he may be found, call upon Him while He is near." (Isaiah 55: 6)
At certain times, the pastor of that church asked the guests:
Who wants to accept Jesus Christ as the sufficient and only Saviour? He's coming back!
Paul thought in your mind:
"Oh, Jesus I know! To accept him again? I've always been a Christian. I'm already saved.
 One day ...
 Paul and Jack were weeding the farm. Then Jack said to Paul:
-Paul, you like the worship that day?
Very annoying he replied:
I think so, Jack. As I told you, I already knew Jesus did not need to accept it again. I remember well the words of the pastor, I know he was wise!
Jack was worried about his response, because was not sure what he had said. Minutes later, Paul called Jack to ride a horse on the farm. So they had performed chores.
Jack: So, after much work ... We're having fun with horses. Are you enjoying?
Jack replied:
-I 'm worried about you, then, a few minutes ago you did not answer me honestly about the call on Sunday. I think you're doing great by the voice of the heart. Stop for just a moment! Let's talk next to that tree?
"Look Paul, says that the word of God:
"There is a path that seems right to man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." (Proverbs 14: 12)
"The heart is deceitful, more than all things and desperately wicked: who can know?" (Jeremiah 17: 9)
-Are you sure of your salvation?
Jack-Of course, we are created the same family and so I'm sure of salvation!
Jack again said:
- Salvation is not collective, the individual! Make no mistake, not because we are brothers that we will all be saved! You have to choose between serving God with the assurance of salvation, or not! I'm saying this because I always loved you since we were children, and that not of me. It is from God our Father! Remember the words of salvation! Remember! We are sinners, we need Jesus Christ, so he is coming back!
Paul would not listen to his brother, but felt sure that life brought to him, but the questions you always wondered every day. But that day, when Paul ignored the words of the Lord ...
"Then two men in the field, will be taken, and the other left;
Since the two grinding mill, shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. " (Matthew 24: 40-42)
"In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed." (I Corinthians 15: 52)

"Then the King will say to those on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you since the foundation of the world" (Matthew 25: 34)
Jack had the salvation, not Paul! Who are we in this story?

The Final Judgement:


12/05/2010
I opened my eyes to a very strong light, which could not feel the force splendor of his glory. Kneeling on his right hand, looked in his hands a book which contained the works of many, many who had lived in the past. " And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a loud voice, “Who is worthy to break the seals and open the scroll?” But no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth could open the scroll or even look inside it. (Revelation 5: 2-3)

It was absoute and sole in my life, for he was before a Being all-powerful in its resplendent glory, where no one could imagine his immense wisdom before all existing beings: " Where then does wisdom come from? Where does understanding dwell? It is hidden from the eyes of every living thing,concealed even from the birds of the air."(Job 28: 20-21)

Then all the angels told them: “You are worthy, our Lord and God,to receive glory and honor and power,for you created all things,and by your will they were createdand have their being.” (Revelation 4: 11)

"And I saw a great white throne and him who sat on it, from whose presence earth and heaven fled ..." (Revelation 20: 11)

So I said to the Lord:
Lord, let me enter the kingdom of heaven?
The Lord replied:
-Who are you to be worthy of entering the liability for mail from the heavens?
- ... Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? "(Matthew 7: 22)
I am not worthy to enter the liability for mail from the heavens?
The Lord replied:
- These are your works?
 “...Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.  For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink,  I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’ (Matthew 25: 41-43)
 ‘...I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’ (Matthew 7: 23)

“For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. (Matthew 7: 2)

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. (Ephesians 2: 8-9) NKJV TRANSLATION

The Narrow Gate: The true path!


28/04/2010

"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it"
(Matthew 7: 13) 

Many seek quick and easy paths in the trajectory of our lives, yet fail to prevent them, since it is already "too late". "Seek the LORD while he may be found, call upon Him while He is near." (Isaiah 55: 6). 

Jesus Christ, even before we meet him, warned in the scriptures (Bible) it would not be way to easy access, but rather a very narrow road, which would have difficulties, disorientation etc. However, it would become a door to meet with eternity: "I have told you this, that in me ye might have peace in the world you have tribulation: but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world." (John 16: 33) 
 
Today, with so many events disordered (failed family, love life ruined, unemployment etc.). It becomes a path that leads to an apparent solution, to us it would be a good ALTERNATIVE paths hidden in our vision, but with final "catastrophic." The society has all the time "focusing" that as a normal accepted by us all. But we can stop - there anytime, we take just attitude!
If the lungs in each breath is precious to us, so their life, work their studies, problems, which is focused to have the light of Christ, this is off failure. 
 
"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end." (Jeremiah 29: 11) 

Do not be fooled, because there are people who do not have God in their lives, but has "everything", but has NOTHING: 
 
"Lay not up treasures on earth, where moth and rust consume and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consume and where thieves do not break through nor steal." (Matthew 6: 19-20) 

It is very sad to see in our news, that each day it is becoming normal. At the moment we leave this occurs, we allow you to absorb this in our everyday lives, and even at times lost our faith.Trying to solve with our own forces, there are ways and advice from people who call themselves friends, but we know the end is death: 
 
"There is a path that seems right to man but the end thereof are the ways of death." (Proverbs 16: 25 and 14: 12) 

We humans are flawed, but we can not be unreasonable to the point of losing his mind! We should learn from those who understand the subject, for only Jesus is who knows the way of our lives! Search religion, politics, suicide, none good, therefore we are here on Earth and passengers do not take anything, there is not our soul! Where do we go if we do not know the final destination? Why every day we try, we have seen, but do not let the Light into our lives? Why do we always take the easy way, but we do not accept the Strait?
