Coincidence or not


It all started when I started writing up a photo compilation for a uni assignment. While searching on Pinterest for things of nature that make us say Wow or Awe! I saw an old post from my twin about a particular image with the shape of a cross, so naturally, and out of curiosity, I clicked on it and upon reading the information. Thought it worthy for my assignment.

The first thing I thought to myself: 'Somone got bored and decided to pimp up the cross.'

Well, this thought became debunked as quickly as I thought it when I read how this is the cell in our body that keeps our human structure intact and together. Without it, our human structure will fall apart.

It's the steel, the cement and the foundation of our structure just as the foundation of cement, and steel is to buildings.

So anyway, I decided to add this to my assignment and this is the final piece.

This morning while waking up, I decided to check my emails and saw some uploaded videos one being hubby's latest YouTube Tutorial.

I was about to put the phone down, I saw this video pop up mysteriously, the title got my attention so I decided to click on it.

Lo and behold, it was about this exact cell I added to my assignment! So I decided to share it to my friends on Facebook. However; hubby being experienced with YouTube mentioned how FaceBook and YouTube are not friends and therefore any YouTube video will be blocked if shared.

So, hubby advised to add the video to a blog and then share it. So here I am taking my man's advice.

I hope you are as awed and amazed as me.

I'm sure, my LORD lead me straight to this and I'm sure this is meant to be shared peacefully and not forcefully. We need to remember, if God respects the free will of mankind, then we must respect the decisions of those who don't believe.

Matthew 5:45 - Click here to read full verse

And finish this blog post, remember how in God's word he says in Colossians 1: 16-17

16For in Him all things were created, things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.

Stay blessed and God be with you.

Possible to see God

There are those who claim that it's impossible to see God. However; God's word says other wise and Jesus himself says it's possible.

Here are some bible verses that prove this.

Exodus 24: 9-11
9 Then Moses, Aaron, Nadab, Abihu, and the seventy elders of Israel climbed up the mountain.
10 and they saw the God of Israel. And there was under His feet as it were a paved work of sapphire stone, and it was like the very heavens in its clarity.
10There they saw the God of Israel. Under his feet there seemed to be a surface of brilliant blue lapis lazuli, as clear as the sky itself.
11 But on the nobles of the children of Israel He did not lay His hand. So they saw God, and they ate and drank.

They clearly saw God. From reading this verse it's like they had a dinner party with the creator. 

Matthew 5: 8 KJV Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

It is clear, anyone with a "pure" heart shall see God. Cannot get any clearer than that.

So if people who claim to see God who doesn't change in his ways say they did. Then they probably did and are pure in heart.

Only the impure will get jealous and do what they do best. Exhault themselves by blaspheming against the pure hearted with negative and destructive words. 

If God who doesn't change decides to show himself to them, then we shouldn't be jealous but rejoice. He showed himself in the past and is showing himself in the present.

Let's not put him in a box and think we are in control because we are not. God is in control, he does what he wants and there's nothing we can do about it. He is Adonai and the all powerful one who created the heavens and the earth.

Old Resolution for Another New Year 2017

New Year's resolution used for years and continuing.

Don't complain or argue when I work (Phil 2:14), do everything diligently and fullheartedly ( Proverb 10: 4, 12: 24), help others secretly whenever I can (Mat 6: 4), accept reprove from those who care and discern the difference of judgement and reprove (Proverbs 9:7-8 & 17:10). Don't seek attention (Proclaim to all fasting times or speak idle words especially when people didn't ask; this is one of the signs of having a Jezebel spirit).

Be consistent in everything; small things do matter like exercising, eating healthy, spending time with God, child, family. Remember private battles will determine my public war. Don't associate myself with angry, lazy, uncontrolled, negative people or I will learn their ways and set a trap for myself (Prov 22:24).

Remember Violent people respond with violence, loving people respond with love, positive people respond with optimism, hopeful people respond with hope, Godly people respond with Godliness (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness and self-control).

Knowing I have the fruit of the Holy Spirit:
- Love: This shows in my daily actions
-Joy: My joy comes from Jesus, no matter what situation I'm in. The moment I stop praising him I've come out from under his wings.
- Peace: that passes all understanding even in times of difficulty.
- Patience: Be patient with unsaved family, friends, acquaintances.
- Kindness: show kindness even when they don't deserve it.
- Goodness: Doing things with good intentions not wanting to receive or gain something in return...I think.
- Gentleness: No violence, no idle words, no negative speaking, no harshness, no judging.
- Self-Control: Most important, if I can't control my bodily desires, how can I control other things. Bodily desires like overeating. Self discipline in exercising. Being consistent, diligent in work, and deeds.

Small things matter in this matter. People are looking at the lights, we are the lights. God says let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. - Matthew 5:16 ESV

Don't act like a caterpillar when I'm a butterfly. 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

This is what Jesus meant by putting on our cross daily. In Matthew 16: 4 Then Jesus said to his disciples, "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.

Things to be consistent about:

- Physical healthy lifestyle to glorify my body for God's sake. He gave my body and since he says it's his temple why be harsh to it?
Treat my body with consistent exercise, consistent healthy eating, and consistent discipline.

- Spiritual health: Doing things half heartedly isn't diligent. Focus on spending time with God morning and night even if it's just admiring and giving him glory for all the wonderful things like food on the table, a beautiful bird he created, family, friends and the list goes on.

Make sure I listen to him just as much as I speak/pray. He speaks in the most unusual and usual things/methods.

- Be diligent with my uni studies, patience is a virtue and a fruit of the Holy spirit, so even though I feel like my graduation day is still few years away, remember Jacob worked 14 years because he loved his Rachel. He went through all sorts of deception from his father-in-law during those years.

- Driving, with faith according to the measure God has given me increase my driving locations like Munno Para or Elizabeth for 2017. I can refocus on other locations as I go along or how the Holy Spirit leads me.

- Environment. The earth belongs to God as says in Psalms 24. As God's child I should be caring more and teaching others about caring for the earth. How? Put more effort into "organising Clean Up Australia Days".

Volunteer time into planting trees and biodiversity.

- Personal Goals:

  • Isabella, spending more time with her, teaching God's word, helping her with homework, school festivities, events, violin lessons. Encouraging her in her strengths and areas of improvements and teaching her, her limits.
  • Archery, aiming to join a local club and see where God takes us from there.
  • Writing Children's books and spreading God's word through it. By the end of December I should have saved enough cash to pay for a publisher Xilibris.

  • You Tubing: Support Luke as his assistant for his YouTube Channel. Never stop tithing, praising, and showering words of encouragement. Help him when he needs help especially with administration duties.
  • Communicate with family more often through viber, Facebook, or email. The occasional snail mail shouldn't hurt.

How to receive

Luke 18: 41 - 42

41saying, “What do you want Me to do for you?” He said, “Lord, that I may receive my sight.”

42Then Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight; your faith has made you well.”

See how he received his sight. The importance of receiving blessings and healings from God

Symbols of Joseph dream

Just like that the Holy Spirit highlighted almost like light shinning in the darkness the significance of Joseph's second dream of the Sun, moon and stars bowing down to him.

His dad Jacob rebuked him thinking that he, his wife and sons would bow down to Joseph one day.

But oh how wrong this was for this wasn't to be revealed for that time.

No the Sun, moon and stars signified Egypt, all of Egypt would bow before him. But in the future.  Jacob never did bow to his son but Joseph's brothers did.

The sun also Pharaoh  (son of Ra) bowed in a sense when he gave his power to Joseph to prepare for the future.

The moon and stars are also worshiped by them.

Looks like God hid this from Jacob so his will to unfold.

How great is God's wonders.

Full story is in Genesis 37.

One bad apple doesn't spoil the bunch

The saying goes: "One Rotten apple spoils the whole bunch".
Well, not really.  If we leave the rotten apple for to long then other apples get corrupted.

But if there's just one rotten apple, then it needs to be taken out early before it spoils the rest. Right?

Interesting how people think they need to show grace to rotten apples. That's true but if that doesn't mean they can allow rottn apples inside the church.

It should be made clear where their rightful place belongs and that's outside the good basket of apples.

Giving rotten apples time is the worst thing to do because "time" is their friend & the enemy of good apples.

Time gives the rotten apple "time" to find an accomplice and corrupt it therefore increasing the number of rotten apples. However,  if the master rotten apple is taken out the accomplice may be saved especially if just a small spot of brown corruption is found. It can be purged with the sword, but if the accomplice apple is corrupted through and through then he must  be taken out and if in leadership - dethroned and removed before the accomplice finds another accomplice.

1 Corinthin 5: 7 says: " 7 You must remove the old yeast of sin so that you will be entirely pure. Then you will be like a new batch of dough without any yeast, as indeed I know you actually are."

Ecc 9 also says: "13This wisdom I have also seen under the sun, and it seemed great to me:
13Here is another bit of wisdom that has impressed me as I have watched the way our world works.
14There was a little city with few men in it; and a great king came against it, besieged it, and built great snaresfn around it.
14There was a small town with only a few people, and a great king came with his army and besieged it.
15Now there was found in it a poor wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city. Yet no one remembered that same poor man.
15A poor, wise man knew how to save the town, and so it was rescued. But afterward no one thought to thank him.
16Then I said:

“Wisdom is better than strength.
Nevertheless the poor man’s wisdom is despised,
And his words are not heard.
16So even though wisdom is better than strength, those who are wise will be despised if they are poor. What they say will not be appreciated for long.
17Words of the wise, spoken quietly, should be heard
Rather than the shout of a ruler of fools.

17Better to hear the quiet words of a wise person
than the shouts of a foolish king.

18Wisdom is better than weapons of war;
But one sinner destroys much good.”

Point is to remove evil or the bad apple before it's too late.

May GOD of the most high bless you.

Significance of resting in Jesus

The hidden message of Jesus washing his disciples feet.

Jesus washing feet  - Shoes of peace (armour).

Why wash the feet? Jesus prepares us by first washing all the dirt of the world of what we're use to (learnt unpeaceful ways/behaviour). It's a process that requires a time of "sitting", as he rids of the yucky dirt (anything not peaceful like violence, war, discord).

Bible verse: John 13: 1-17 Why did Jesus unclothed his outer garments? A symbol of humility. In order for us to become servants of God we must uncloth pride. Go on our knees in prayer as well.

Why a towel around his waist?A symbol of truth affiliated with the spiritual armour, belt of truth...if we know what's true (Jesus is the way the truth and the life no one comes to the father except through him) and this truth is connected to peace - Ephesians 6:15 NIV " For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.

Jesus has shown us how to connect the two (belt of truth and shoes of peace. Which is only possible via humility.)
(JESUS drying his disciples feet.)

Why bathed people only need to wash feet? We who are washed by Jesus blood consistently need to wash our feet because it's exposed to the things of the world and collects world dust...washing our feet or consistently preparing by reading, meditating and feeding our spirit with God's word ensures we stay free, clean and light of these dust. Another way Jesus is telling us to sit or rest and spend time with him. "He had to wash feet or they wouldn't be truly his".

Bible Verse: John 13:1-17 (KJV) 1 Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end. 2 And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him; 3 Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God; 4 He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. 5 After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded. 6 Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet? 7 Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter. 8 Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. 9 Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head. 10 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all. 11 For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean. 12 So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you? 13 Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am. 14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet. 15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you. 16 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him. 17 If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.
