Be Yourself No Matter What They Say

JelousyConstant jealousy makes one very ugly, when actually you are beautiful.

One thing about life is, whatever you do, people will always gossip, criticize or talk about you. Someone can hate you, because you are good in something, someone can hate you, because of your religion, someone can hate you, because of the color of your skin, someone can hate you, because of your sexual preference, above someone can hate for being honest.

In whatever situation you may find yourself, just be yourself, no matter what they say. Unfortunately, many can’t stand hatred, so they quickly throw in the towel, to please those brood of vipers intimidating and terrorizing them. That’s a big mistake. Never try to please anyone in life, because greed doesn’t allow people to be satisfied in life.

Life is very hard. The only people who really live are those who are harder than life itself,”  says Egyptian author Nawal El Sadaawi. Would you succumb to alcohol because the problems are too tough to handle? Or will live in perpetual darkness and depression because someone hates you?

There is only one medicine that heals and kills your enemy. That is laughter. Apart from being good for your health, your enemy cries when he sees you laughing. Remember in life, never ever try to please anyone. Kindness is very good, but please avoid too much kindness, because some kindness may give you a lot of worries.

With each year passing, the world is becoming increasingly dangerous, overrun with dishonest politicians, hypocrites and criminals. Everyone has the right to choose his own destiny. If you want to be one of them, you can join them, but please don’t hate anyone because he wants to live true, clean and pure, else you’ll damage your health with hatred and jealousy.

I Am Not Afraid: Demon Possession And Spiritual Warfare

Demon 2

While Africa and Madagascar seem like strange and faraway places, the world in which we now live has become much smaller than many of us could ever have imagined. Moreover, even our neighbors visit the local fortuneteller, read the horoscope page in the newspaper, and attend séances that seek to reach departed friends, lovers, and family members. Consequently, as we begin a journey into faraway places, we may soon find they are not as far away as we may have expected.

From Chapter 3

I Am Not Afraid is Rev. Dr. Robert Bennett s fascinating first-hand account of the spiritual warfare found within the Lutheran Church of Madagascar. Is spiritual warfare something new to the Church? Bennett reviews what the Bible, Church Fathers, and contemporary Lutheran leaders have to say.

Part One includes recent conversations dealing with spiritual warfare, an introduction into the Malagasy Lutheran Church, and the traditional Malagasy worldview. These are the stories of those who have been rescued from the darkness of sin and brought into the light of the Gospel.

Part Two looks to the Bible and the Church for explanation and historical perspective on the spiritual warfare found in the Malagasy Lutheran Church. Is it something only found in the time of Jesus and the apostles? What has the Church said in the past about such activities? Bennett explores the views of Martin Luther and other Lutheran leaders, and finally provides some helpful contemporary material and resources for dealing with spiritual warfare in today s context.

Includes a glossary of key terms, transcripts of personal interviews, bibliography, Scripture index, and subject index.

10 Powerful Proverbs Of Admonition

Bird

The bird just finished eating. Filled up, he flies up the tree and begins to sing praises to his creator for providing him food, nest and protecting him from rain, storm and thunder. Yet the bird doesn’t know that underneath the tree, comes his enemy, the hunter, ready to shoot him for his afternoon meal.

This is exactly how life on earth is when you don’t know your enemy. You may put a smile on your face everyday, be kind and respectful to others, provide your family needs and be helpful when the needs arise, yet you’ve got an enemy you don’t know. Thus, be always conscious, watchful and careful where ever you step, so that you may live a happy life.

Here are 10 powerful and inspiring proverbs one should always keep in mind:

  1. Do not enter the path of the wicked and do not walk in the way of evil men.

2. Know this: People feed themselves with bread of wickedness and drink the wine of violence.

3. The way of the wicked is like darkness, they do not know what makes them stumble.

4. Only fools despise wisdom and discipline.

5. My son, if sinners try to entice you, do not consent.

6. For because of a prostitute, a man is reduced to a loaf of bread, but the wife of another  man preys on a precious life.

7. Say to wisdom “You are my sister and call understanding my relative.”

8. Whoever says to the wicked one “You’re righteous,” will be cursed by the people and denounced by the nations.

9. People will kiss the lips of the one replying honestly.

10. Do not boast about tomorrow, for you don’t know a day will bring.

Selected from the book of Proverbs of Solomon, the son of David and the king of Israel. There are hundreds of readers interested in religious articles like me, the reason I love Biblical articles. There are more soul uplifting and spiritual feeding articles in the Bible to read.

White Negro (MZUNGU MWEUSI) A Poem By JOHAN VAN DONGEN

 

The author

Johan 15

Johan Van Dongen is a Dutch Micro-Surgeon, Scientist and author. His four decades of research revealed that Aids and Ebola were medical crimes plagued on Africans by Europe and America. The viruses were man-made and engineered from the laboratory as bio-warfare product and tested on Africans to depopulate the continent.

He quickly published a book of his research of the crimes in his native language (Dutch) in Holland. The Dutch government didn’t take his publication likely, since the plot is to cover up those medical crimes. He therefore faced many legal actions and eventually lost his job while he was a lecturer at one of the universities in Holland.

European and American scientists say they are clever, but not clever enough than Johan Van Dongen, because he isn’t coward to speak the truth.

Why We Should Crave For Spiritual Things Than Material Things

Peace 3

Many dream of becoming a millionaire and they want it quick, because it is made to understand that without money or wealth, there wouldn’t be any success in life. Thus, the love for money and the chase for wealth go on without ceasing, bringing crime, greed, misery and death to our homes.

When the great teacher, Jesus Christ, was tempted by Satan, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.’ Jesus’ answer indicates that human beings need also spiritual food.

What is spiritual food by the way? Just like we need physical food for physical strength, we need spiritual food for spiritual strength. Why spiritual strength necessary for man?  At every moment we need spiritual strength to fight bravely against fear, doubt, worry, jealousy and imperfection. Also spiritual strength helps us to endure daily trials and tribulations, without thinking of ending your life in the deepest crisis.

Evidently, there is no doubt that many people lack spiritual strength to fight some of these unseen forces and immoralities, drifting them into the tunnel of darkness. The Buddhist, Spiritual leaders and Yoga teachers, can tell you the significance of spirituality, because when we pray and meditate, we crave for spiritual things, by reading the scriptures, without much desire for material things. After all what shall it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul? We came with nothing into the world and we leave with nothing.

Spiritual strength is acquired through daily prayers and meditation. It gives one the ability to liberate himself and to manifest the Divine on earth.  Many rich people even though have thousands of friends, due to the lack of strength in the heart; they still feel lonely and insecure. It is very hard to forgive sometimes when someone hurts you, but we must try to forgive, because forgiveness brings unexpected showers of blessing.

I have said it over and over that ‘Whatever happens to me benefits me.’ Prayers, meditation, the lessons and whatever I’ve gone through in my life, have given me the knowledge and wisdom to raise a happy family, to avoid crime, being a drug addict or trafficker and keeping me from going to jail. This makes me feel like a millionaire even though I’ve no penny in my pocket.

Who Is Qualified As True Minister Of God?

Jehovah 5

1500-2000 year old Bible found in Turkey, in the Ethnography Museum of Ankara.

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” – Isaiah 5:20

Sent by his father to spread the gospel and saved mankind, Jesus preached with authority and the people were amazed at his teaching, because he taught them as one who had authority, not as the teachers of the law. The harvest is plentiful but the labourers are few, therefore to make his mission easier, Jesus created his first disciples out of fishermen.

As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” At once they left their nets and followed him.

Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them, and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him. From there on the disciples of Jesus followed him, learned from his teachings and preached the gospel.

Another great example of a man of God doing the will of God is Elijah. Before his departure from the earth, he invited Elisha to become his attendant. Elisha promptly accepted Elijah’s invitation and faithfully served God, through his master. The Bible states that after the departure of Elijah, Elisha showed respect to his master and continued doing the work of God, just as his master thought him without changing it.

If Jesus, Elijah, Elisha and all the great men in the Bible inspired by God, serve him faithfully, why today we are witnessing different teachings and practices from Bible? As a matter of fact only few pastors are faithfully doing what the Bible requires,while many are doing what the Bible speaks against. It’s clear that many pastors are selfishly serving man, instead of God.

What kind of Bible pastors and many head churches doing what is contrary to the Bible using? What principles in the Bible are they dwelling on to execute their negative and abominable acts as servants of God? Galatians 6:7 states that “Be not deceived; God is not mocked. It is all very well for you to make large professions to which you do not act up. These may deceive others, but do not let them deceive yourselves. Do not think that God will allow you thus to mock Him.”

Frankly speaking, these pastors can’t use the Bible to mock or abuse God. They will receive their punishment without any escape route. I am not the one saying this. They know where to find it in the Bible, they are holding themselves. If it’s good to worship man and continue doing evil things to please man, rather than God, then they should follow whatever evil they feel is good to destroy the society.

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” – Isaiah 5:20. A warning to pastors and all those heads of churches, who are abusing the Bible in God’s name.

“Every tree not producing fine fruit is cut down and thrown into fire.” Matthew 7:19 and “Not everyone saying to me, Lord, Lord, will enter into the Kingdom of heavens, but only the one doing the will of my father who is in heaven.” – Matthew 7:21. 

 “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”
