Decision Making

There is a fantastic book which talks about a shepherd who followed a dream he had more than once… He left everything he knew behind… He lost, he won, he learned. He LIVED. His life changed Forever. But which was the most important point, the point that really changed his life? It’s when he Decided… To Go…

“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for.”
(Hebrews 11:1,2)

No matter what you dream, what you want, what you believe in. If you don’t make : Decisions And Act, and really persuit your dream,there is no way it can become real.

“By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.”
(Hebrews 11:3)

We live in a world that “makes” all the decisions for us. Tv Shows, food, cars, clothes, ideal relationships, the house of “our” dreams… Trough publicity, the world seems to know exactly what you need… And therefore, you don’t need to decide… Because it’s allready decided for you, or because it’s to risky to take unknown paths…

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
(Deuteronomy 31:6)

Be… Bold!

Evil?

How many times have You thought, when watching or reading the news, “What made that person do that? What was on his/her mind? What’s going on in the world? ” ?

How many times have you thought that “conspiracy plan” is not a fantasy at all?? That there is something, someone, controlling us? Trough fear, distractions, consumism, trough our own emotions (or the absence of emotions…) … There are many who prefer to believe that all the bad things that happen in this world are a proof that God doesn’t exist. Maybe it’s easier to think that God doesn’t exist instead of admitting what we already know. That there is Evil. According to the Bible we can even say that there is an Emperor of the Dark Forces. An Evil that hides behind so many other evil things.

“And the great dragon was cast down, the old serpent, he that is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world; he was cast down to the earth, and his angels were cast down with him. ” Apocalipse 12: 9

This “fallen” Angel who received the Titles of Satan and Devil, wich mean Oppositor and Slanderer, was formerly in the Beginning of Time a Divine Angel of God :

” Whereupon were the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof; When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? ” (Job 38: 6, 7)

Vanity, took him to a rebellion against God Himself. There are many passages in the Bible that we can consult to know him better.
Jesus The Christ speaks openly about the devil. For example in the Episode of Temptation in Matthew 4, or in John 8:44 :

” Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father it is your will to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and stood not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father thereof. ”

Nowadays many are the ones that disregard, speaking of Beelzebub (another of his infamous titles) as a metaphor. An accurate biblical reading will make us… Feel…Understand…Evil.
Even a careful observation of our society today and in the past makes us stumble on hedious crimes against the Human Being in the most varied aspects. In politics, in so many social aspects, in religion and other ways a human being can be harmed.
Even “inexplicable” murders that occur, some of them in mass, without apparent explanation. Or is there an explanation?
The explanation exists.

The “Orchestrator” of this world has its reasons and also they are described in the Bible.

Seek for The Truth…

United VS Uniformed

Isn’t it good to feel understood, accepted, embraced, helped, listened? Loved? All of us seek for these things… Unfortunately there are those who wear a mask to please others, so they can get all of that, even if they are not beeing themselves. There are also those who accept things with which they don’t agree or believe, so they can still be accepted. By their families, friends, in their jobs, churches… This is so… Emptying…

” Now if the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. If they were all one part, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, but one body. The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!” ”
(Corinthians 12:15 to 21)

This is what Apostle Paul taught… Ancient Christians believed that Unity only exists with differences. We believe in this. Our King, Christ, chose 12 disciples, all so different from one another…

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
(John 13:34,35)

Is there Love with no Respect?

Love yourself and love others. Be yourself and Respect others. There is no need to be equal to be United.

A King’s Tale

Once upon a time there was a King. When He came, there were those who didn’t recognize Him, and others who were disappointed. Because He wasn’t the kind of king they expected.
This King… Was different from all Kings. He ruled with Love above all things. A Teacher who taught humility by washing His students feet (John 13:5) . A Warrior with a unique armour… And a powerful weapon, fighting in a different battlefield (Ephesians 6:12 to 17).
To those who questioned and offended Him… He replied with Words and Actions of Respect, Justice, Wisdom, Love. Crowds followed Him.
He was so Special that there was a woman who cried over His feet and dried them with her own hair (Luke 7:38)…

His name? Emanuel. Yeshua. Better known as Jesus Christ.

Because we believe He still lives, we reinforce the invitation made since the beginning of this blog. To know this Great King who taught with Words and Actions, in flesh and bone. Like us.
Hope you recognize Him in your own Heart. We can share and invite, but each one’s Path is individual!

What do we Do with our Treasures?

“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal : But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal : For where your treasure, there will your heart be also.”

Matthew 6:19 to 21

The Bible teach us so much about our day-to-day lives. When we start reading it, with no preconceptions, with our own eyes, mind and heart, we even start to recognise things we already knew. For example, everyone, or almost everyone knows that real treasures aren’t material. But what do we do with that knowledge? So the Bible teaches one of the most important things in life… Action. What do we Do with what we Know? What do we Do with what we Have? Something good? Something bad? Nothing?

“If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, and one of you say unto them : Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled ; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body, What doth it profit?”

James 2:15

Think about it… What do you really Have? And what do you really Do with It?

Freedom?

“For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men : As FREE, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. ” 1st Peter 2:15, 16

Freedom?

What is Freedom? To say what you want? To do what you want? To act as you feel? Is it possible to be free in this world? That’s what we hear all the time : ” It’s a free world! ” … But… Is it really? Free of What??

” Our integrity sells for so little, but is the very last inch of us. But within that inch, we are Free.” – In “V for Vendetta”

Do You feel Free?

Chasing Dreams

Aren’t we all always chasing dreams? Since the beginning of Times, the Human Being has been on a Quest. A quest for knowledge. For truth. Happiness. Feeling. A Quest to keep on Dreaming… Because there are so many things going wrong in this world. So much injustice.

What if there was something that would teach you about all these things? About Knowledge, Truth, Happiness, Feeling, Dreaming? About the injustice in this world? About Yourself?

“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation : but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

The Bible teaches you about all these things, and so much more… Did you know that there was a time when reading the Bible was strictly forbidden? There were men who fought all their lives so that the Bible could be available to everyone. Some of them were chased and even killed, just for translating it. Why? What does it have to give to each of us?

Here we invite you to find out… Matthew, Apostle of Christ, was a man, a human being, a sinner, like us. Onde day he made a choice, in his heart and mind. To follow the Son of God. He wrote and left us a Gospel, wich is now the beginning of the New Testament.

Hope you accept this invitation. Hope you share it with others!
