So You Think being Brainy is Better? Um..

Proverbs 4:7

Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding.

I want to talk about wisdom right now. Many people think that wisdom is just a common thing and it can be obtained by reading books or studying hard. This is a wrong understanding of what wisdom really is and how to get wisdom for your life. Wisdom first, then come understanding. Now take a look at this verse:

Job 12:13

” With Him are wisdom and strength, He has counsel and understanding.

Proverbs 2:6

For the LORD gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;

These verses mean that we can only obtain wisdom from God. We cannot obtain it from all those books that we’ve been reading.

For example:

There was a certain doctor who was really good at his job. He knew how to treat the sick, and what were the unhealthy things in this world that could lead to a fatal effect on human’s body. Long story short, he knew that smoking was not good for his health, and it could even cause several severe illnesses like lung disease etc. Even though he knew the consequences, he didn’t care about it and kept on smoking.

The example above shows us that that person has no wisdom at all. It also shows that wisdom cannot be obtained by studying or reading books. The person from the example above is not a stupid person. He’s a very educated man and yet, he has no wisdom at all.

And so, from Job 12:13 we know that wisdom can only be gained from God. The procedure of obtaining wisdom from God is actually very simple. We all need wisdom in this life you know. And we can get it for free! Check this out:

1 Corinthians 1:24,30

but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God — and righteousness and sanctification and redemption —

God has given us Lord Jesus Christ as our Wisdom in this life. He isn’t just the source of it, He is the Wisdom Himself. Wisdom is Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ (Wisdom) lives in us and we lives in Him (Wisdom), His Word lives in us and whatever we ask in our prayer shall be granted.

John 15:7

If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.

And we can abide in Him by receiving His sacrifice at the cross. By receiving His Flesh and His Blood. He said that ask whatever we desire and it shall be done for us. We can take the example of King Solomon. When God said to Him to ask any of the things he desired, Solomon only asked for wisdom so that he could be a better ruler. God really like this and He gave Solomon the great wisdom, and He also add all the things Solomon didn’t ask like power and wealth.

1 Kings 4:29,30

And God gave Solomon wisdom and exceedingly great understanding, and largeness of heart like the sand on the seashore.
Thus Solomon’s wisdom excelled the wisdom of all the men of the East and all the wisdom of Egypt.

Take a note of this. God gives wisdom first, and then all the things shall be added to you. When we have problems in our family, or with our job, studies etc, we are not having problems with all of those you know. The actual problem is that we lack of wisdom. We need wisdom in our daily lives. We need wisdom in our studies. We need wisdom in our marriages. We need wisdom in our relationships with our partners. So it means that we need Jesus Christ in everything we do. Do not ever forget Him, and don’t ever let your brain to be bigger than your faith. Ask Jesus for wisdom in any areas or aspects of this life that you have difficulties with, and be refreshed ๐Ÿ™‚

Oil and Wine


http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_e3JHbJpnLDM/Sw0GJklpJII/AAAAAAAAAIg/DlLY01qtcyo/S240/oil+wine.jpg

We have learned more about Anointing Oil, and the power and the true meaning of Holy Communion from the past few posts. Now I want to talk about the effects and application of both the Oil (Anointing Oil) and the Wine (Blood of Jesus; His sacrifice at the cross).

Revelation 6:6

And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.”

As requested, I’m going to talk more about Jesus’ sacrifice (His Flesh and Blood) and also about the Power he gave to us.

For you information, a denarius is a man’s pay for one whole day. A quart of wheat is a man’s one time meal. Barley has a much lower quality than wheat. So, this verse means that a man’s one time meal is worth that man’s pay for one day. Basically speaking, the man can only eat once a day. This represents the nowadays condition, where crisis and economic recession is everywhere!

But, God give us the solution. It is written, “and do not harm the oil and the wine”. So, for those who are anointed with His Holy Oil and the Holy Spirit came upon them, and also for those who receive His Flesh and His Blood, we will not be harmed at the End of the Age. Remember and refresh your mind with this:

John 6:53-56

Then Jesus said to them, โ€œMost assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you.

Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.

For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed.
He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.

And:

John 15:7

If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.

Also:

Judges 9:9

ย But the olive tree said to them, ‘ Should I cease giving my oil, With which they honor God and men, And go to sway over trees?’

These verses are truly beautiful. God gives us the solution in which we can survive the tests he has prepared for this world. By receiving His Flesh and Blood, we live in Jesus and Jesus lives in us; His Word lives in us. And He said ask whatever you desire, and it shall be done for you! Then with Anointing Oil, we are honoring God, we are pleasing God, and God will be glorified; since Anointing Oil also honoring men, men are honored to be the salt and light of the world. So that the whole world may see Christ in us, see the prove from God, and repent.

Christ lives in us, and we live in Him. We are His ambassadors on this earth, and God, with His Anointment of Holy Spirit, will give the world prove of His chosen people; that is, for those who receive His Oil (Anointment of Power and Holy Spirit) and Wine (Blood of Jesus, His sacrifice at the cross). And to give all the world prove about God’s chosen people and that Jesus is the God Almighty, we won’t be harmed by all those sicknesses, illnesses, recession, and also the devil. This is the Truth from the Bible!

Christ is the main vine and we are the branches. Whoever lives in Him will be fruitful, and whoever lives outside Him will not be fruitful and be thrown away because outside him we can’t do anything (reference John 15:5-6)

So, to live in Him, we need to receive His Flesh and Blood. To be the salt and light of this world, to be the ambassador of Heaven, and to give the world prove that Lord Jesus is very cool and great and powerful, we need His Power and Anointment of Holy Spirit. Be refreshed ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

The Power, The Promise, The Life


I just want to share some beautiful verses today with you guys. And, believe me, it’s a life-changing one!

http://handsfrozentothesword.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/communion.jpg

1 Corinthians 11:23-26

For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread;

and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”

In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”

For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.

Also, check out this one:

John 6:51

I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.”

And:

John 6:53-56

Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you.

Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.

For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed.
He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.

Jesus’ flesh is real food and His blood is real drink! He died at the cross for us. He was pierced, crucified, and suffered at the cross so that we may receive His flesh and blood; that we may be saved from the torment He experienced. So that we may live healthily now and then. He said do this as a remembrance of Me. So, every time we have our Holy Communion, we remember His sacrifice at the cross. We remember that He replaced us back then so that we may not die horribly like that. And with this Holy Communion, we live in Him and He lives in us. His Word lives in us and whatever we ask in our prayers shall be granted by Father. But then do remember this verse as well:

Matthew 6:33

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

So, when you receive His flesh and His blood, understand that we proclaim His death till He comes! This Holy Communion has Power and devils are afraid of Jesus’ Blood. This is His Promise to each and everyone of us. This is the everlasting Life He offers! That through His sacrifice, through His Blood, we are saved and refreshed ๐Ÿ™‚

With Oil??


http://blog.thefoundationstone.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/Anointing_of_fresh_oil.jpg

James 5:14,15

Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.
And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

Anointing Oil is very powerful! This Holy Oil is used to honor God and also to honor men. The reference is in Judges 9:8-9, which said, “The trees once went forth to anoint a king over them. And they said to the olive tree, ‘ Reign over us!’ But the olive tree said to them, ‘ Should I cease giving my oil, With which they honor God and men, And go to sway over trees?’

God is honored and men is also honored with this Anointing Olive Oil. Men are honored! This means that all our diseases will be healed by our Jesus Christ, and all our problems will be answered by Him in due time! It’s not God’s plan for you if you’re always sick all the time and hopeless. Jesus had suffered all kinds of sicknesses at the cross. He had died at a young age so that we may not die young. He was hungry and thirsty at the cross so that we may not hunger and thirst anymore. He had suffered sins and punishment so that we will not suffer anymore. So that we can receive Eternal Life freely! And just before He died, He said that it is finished. It means that all our diseases, our problems, our hunger and thirst, and all our sins had been finished once and for all at the cross! And we can receive His power through this Anointment of Holy Spirit too. How amazing is that!

In addition to this, demons are afraid of this Anointment too. Mark 6:13 said, “And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them.” Demons are afraid with this Anointing Oil because this Anointment has power! And so, we can relax a bit because we won’t be defeated by the opposite side.ย  We won’t fall victim to hypnotism, we won’t fall for the devil’s attempt to destroy us, and we won’t succumb to illnesses that the wicked one has prepared. This is the power that God Jesus Christ has planned for us!

And so, if you happens to have any diseases at all or if you, by any chance, have any hereditary diseases (which can also occurred because of curses from generations ago) you can mention them to God Jesus, anoint yourself with Anointing Oil, believe in the power of Jesus’ sacrifice at the cross, and be refreshed ๐Ÿ™‚
