  • Never fear the trial you are facing. God makes every season a purpose-producing season in our lives. What looks like a “setback” is just a stepping stone into greater things for God. “But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew. And they were grieved because of the children of Israel.” Exodus 1:12

  • Quality Time with God & Home
.
Rabu, 26 Juni 2019
Bacaan
Kej 15:1-12.17-18
Mat 7:15-20
.
Dalam bacaan injil hari ini, Yesus memperingatkan kepada pengikutNya mengenai hal pengajaran sesat yang dibawakan oleh nabi-nabi palsu. Lewat perumpamaan buah dan pohon. Ada pepatah mengatakan buah jatuh tidak jauh dari pohonnya. Kita bisa menilai pohon dari buahnya, pohon yang baik menghasilkan buah yang baik pula, sedang pohon yang tidak baik menghasilkan buah yang tidak baik.
.
Dalam bacaan itu, Yesus mengingatkan untuk waspada terhadap nabi-nabi palsu yang datang dengan tipu muslihat, menyamar seperti domba, namun kenyataannya adalah serigala yang buas (Matius 7:15). Dengan kata lain serigala berbulu domba, banyak bertebaran saat ini. Mereka menawarkan berbagai kenikmatan dan kemudahan dunia, yang ujung-ujungnya adalah kebinasaan. Oleh karena itu, dikutip dari kata Bang Napi "waspadalah! waspadalah!"
Semoga kita sendiri pun tidak menjadi salah satu dari serigala berbulu domba tersebut. Amin🙏🏻

God bless you ~ Home-AL 💙

  • The peace of God is unexplainable and undeniable. You know exactly when it comes from him. It’s so calming. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
I was burdened in my spirit about some things that I could have attempted to handle on my own. I could have intervened but I’m tired of getting in my own way. So this time I decided to pray about these things, remain patient and just like that revelation. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
With this revelation came peace, joy, promotion and a renewed spirit. God I thank you!!!⁣⁣⁣
⁣
 The Holy Spirit will also plant a praise in your heart. 🎼”He’ll give you hope for tomorrow, joy for your sorrow, strength for everything you go through!”⁣⁣

  • You are God’s own masterpiece! That means you are not ordinary or average; you are a one-of-a-kind original. When God created you, He went to great lengths to make you exactly the way He wanted you to be. He gave you the right personality, the right gifts, the right talents, and the right connections to do exactly what He’s called you to do. The question is: do you recognize the treasure you possess?

Today, don’t settle for living a mediocre existence. Unlock the hidden treasures inside of you. Every morning when you get out of bed, remind yourself, I am a masterpiece. I am handpicked by God, and I am a person of extreme value and significance. Remember, you are an original—you’re not meant to be like everyone else; God designed you the way you are for a specific purpose. Everything about you is unique, and every detail about you matters. Receive His love today because you are His most prized treasure!

  • I’ve been so inactive on this page because I’ve been really distracted by so many other things and I apologize. I will be honest, I’ve been backsliding a bit but God has helped me realize that though I may fail, he will never leave me 🗣. Sometimes I push him away but he’s always there and ready to embrace me with open arms and for that I AM GRATEFUL 🙌🏽 #imback #Godislove #Jesus  #Heavenisnear #Hallelujah #myhallelujahbelongstoyou #whorship #praise #Amen

CHILD OF GOD VS CHILD OF SATAN
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
🔥🔥1 John 3:7-10🔥🔥
Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
👇
(Note: I know that even a true believer may fall into sin at times but it's the grace of God that picks them back up to follow Christ repnt and believe again. They won't live a life of habitual sin, neither will they be happy in sin but sorrowful.)
●
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
WE WILL KNOW A CHILD OF GOD BY THEIR FRUITS (WORKS)👇
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
🍎🍍Matthew 7:16-20🍇🍋
Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

  • I used to be very shy ☺️ sometimes I can still be shy, I remember when I was little the pastor would say if you want the Holy Ghost and if you want to be baptized to come to the alter so we can pray for you... I wanted to go so badly, but I was so so nervous to walk up to the alter, I eventually did walk up to the alter, when I was older, and I felt like God was drawing me to Him, I eventually got baptized & it was the best day of my life! Months later i would hear the music play & I would see people dancing 💃🏽 at church and I wanted to dance too but again I was shy, but just like it happened before God drew me, and I didn’t care who was looking or what my mind was telling me I stood up and made my way to the alter and I dance 💃🏽, I made a decision to always allow God to move in my life and direct my feet 🦶🏽 and my steps even when it comes to worshiping and dancing. I dance because I honor Him 🙌🏽

  • SANTO BONIFASIUS

Bonifasius dilahirkan dalam keluarga Kristen pada tahun 680.Ia lahir di kota Kirton, Inggris. Nama aslinya adalah Winfred. Ia sempat tinggal dan belajar di sebuah biara sebelum akhirnya ditahbiskan sebagai imam pada usia tiga puluh tahun. Tahun 723, ia diangkat sebagai uskup dan sejak itulah namanya kemudian berubah menjadi Bonifasius.
.
Ia meninggal sebagai seorang martir ketika sedang menjalankan misinya di Frisia pada tahun 754. Saat peristiwa itu terjadi, Bonifasius bersama sejumlah pengikutnya sedang berkemah di lembah sungai Borne sambil menanti kedatangan orang-orang yang hendak menerima sakramen. Akan tetapi, sebaliknya yang datang justru adalah orang-orang yang berniat untuk membunuh Bonifasius beserta seluruh pengikutnya. Tulang kerangka Bonifasius dikumpulkan untuk disimpan di Utrecht tetapi kemudian dipindahkan ke Mainz dan akhirnya disimpan di Fulda.

  • SANTO KAROLUS LWANGA, DKK

Kebenaran dan keluhuran ajaran Yesus dibela mati-matian oleh para pengikut-Nya dimana-mana meskipun hal itu mengakibatkan kematian. Di Afrika, terutama di Uganda, pembelaan iman ini telah mengakibatkan pembunuhan banyak martir.
.
Penganiyaan dan pembunuhan atas orang-orang Kristen itu disebabkan oleh ajaran Kristen yang dianggap sebagai perintah utama pelaksanaan adat-istiadat kafir di Uganda. Ketika itu, adat-istiadat disana masih tergolong sangat primitif. Perdagangan budak, poligami dan pemerkosaan anak-anak dianggap hal yang biasa. Demikian juga pelestarian adat-istiadat dan animisme masih dianggap sebagai perkara budaya yang harus digalakkan.
.
Oleh karena itu kedatangan misionaris-misionaris Katolik pada tahun 1879 untuk mewartakan Injil Kristus dianggap sebagai penghalang keberlangsungan praktek adat-istiadat dan kebiasaan buruk diatas. Akibatnya, penguasa setempat melancarkan aksi pembunuhan terhadap para misionaris itu. Banyak juga pemuda-pemuda Uganda yang sudah menjadi Kristen dibunuh.
.
Pada tanggal 25 Maret 1886, raja mendapati para pelayannya sedang mengikuti pelajaran agama dari seorang misionaris. Ia sangat marah dan lalu membunuh anak-anak itu. Keesokan harinya, ia mengumpulkan para ketua suku dan meminta pertimbangan mereka untuk menghukum anak-anak Kristen yang lain. Hal ini sama sekali tidak menggentarkan hati mereka. Mereka rela mati demi imannya.
.
Anak-anak Kristen yang belum dibunuh, termasuk di dalamnya Karolus Lwanga, ditangkap dan dipenjarakan. Karolus yang tertua segera mempermandikan dan mengajar mereka tentang ajaran-ajaran iman Kristen. Ia menguatkan hati mereka untuk menerima segala akibat yang paling buruk. Iman mereka teguh dan mereka bersedia menjalani hukuman bakar yang ditimpakan atas mereka.
.
Karolus dibunuh bersama kawan-kawannya demi membela iman Kristen. Mereka yakin bahwa Tuhan akan memberi mereka pahala di surga yang jauh lebih membahagiakan. Oleh Sri Paus Paulus VI, Karolus dinyatakan ‘kudus’ pada tahun 1964.
