Cabernet Sauvignon

I believe getting “Drunk in the Holy Spirit” is just as dangerous as getting drunk with alcohol. Both lead to moronic and scandalous behaviour. Both bring disgrace to you and perhaps those around you i.e. your family and friends. But, the former brings disgrace to God and to what His Church should be – a light to the world and hope.

“Wow!” exclaimed Sarah as she sipped the Cabernet Sauvignon for the very first time. Swirling it around in her mouth, she could taste and smell a barrage of fragrances that permeated her taste buds. “It tastes like more… much, much more.” “I wonder where this comes from, and I’m not talking about the shop, just in case someone thinks I’m having a blonde moment”, she giggled.

“I’ll tell you”, said James, helping himself to a second glass, since the first glass did not even touch sides. “Being a viticulturist of sorts, I’ll be happy to bore you with some interesting details”, he said, with a please-let-me-tell-you expression on his face.

“Sure, tell me, this will be interesting”, Sarah responded, not because she really wanted to know, but was only passing common courtesy to James.

“Excellent”, continued James, overjoyed to unleash his academic knowledge to those who would lend him an…

Emmanuel is remedy for separation

Great Article!

Scott's Blog

Jesus’ name is God with us which is the word ‘Immanuel’ or ‘Emmanuel’

Isa 7:14 (KJ2000) ” 14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. ”

Matt 1:23 (KJ2000) ” 23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. ”

It appears that there is some controversy about the Old Testament prediction of the virgin birth and it is pretty interesting.  See:

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/joeljmiller/2012/12/does-the-old-testament-really-predict-the-virgin-birth/

Why does there have to be controversy?

Because people don’t want to accept it. It is not possible for a virgin to be pregnant.
This ‘scientific’ fact must not be disputed and yet an embryo can be nurtured in a cup.
I think people…

A Tough Command

Yes, and I will rejoice, for I know that through your prayers and the help of the Spirit of Jesus Christ this will turn out for my deliverance, as it is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full courage now as always Christ will be honored in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. If I am to live in the flesh, that means fruitful labour for me. Yet which I shall choose I cannot tell. I am hard pressed between the two. My desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better. But to remain in the flesh is more necessary on your account. Convinced of this, I know that I will remain and continue with you all, for your progress and joy in the faith, so that in me you may have ample cause to glory in Christ Jesus, because of my coming to you again. (Philippians 1:18-26)

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Many divine commands seem perfectly reasonable. With the Ten Commandments, for example, we easily understand why God forbids adultery, idols, and murder. But elsewhere He gives instructions that ostensibly make little sense. Let’s look at why He calls us to the seemingly impossible task of giving thanks in everything.

The Scriptures clearly teach that giving thanks is meant to be a way of life, not just a seasonal event (Psalm 92:1-2; Phil. 4:6-7). The problem is that we often do not feelappreciative, particularly when facing painful circumstances or faith tests. In fact, expressing gratitude for bad news seems irrational. What seems logical to the human mind, however, cannot compete with God’s greater knowledge of what is best for His children. As a result, we live a successful Christian life only by choosing to thank Him for everything He sends or allows across our path.

The Lord knows…

The Hindu Yoga kundaLini Spirit; And The Christian Church

(THIS ABOVE ARTICLE ARTICLE IS A COPY PASTE OF AN ARTICLE WRITTEN BY ANDREW STROM IN NEW ZEALAND, THE ARTICLE IS THROUGH ‘CHRISTIANS TOGETHER’)

 

This is a “Must-Read” for any serious Christian who need discernment about what is from The Holy Spirit and what is not. This article will both shock you because of the devilish infiltration of Stan’s perversions into the Church. And then, of course, Hopefully, it will motivate the genuine Christian to seek wisdom from Christ alone who will give it to anyone that asks.

James 1:5 and 16-18

5If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.

16Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers. 17Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.d 18Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.

 

However, just as a bit of a disclaimer; I still do not adhere to the Speaking in tongues part regarding the article. OldPoet 56 sent me this article in response to the pervasive and invasive Kundalini Spirit that has hit the Churches with gale force winds. If I may say, Old Poet56 also has his own questions about the Tongue Speaking part in the article, even though the article is mostly about the Kundalini Spirit.

 

Thank you, Oldpoet56 (http://truthtroubles.com/) for giving me the above link

When We Face Life’s Mountains

Thank you, LORD, that You are the One who empowers your people – not by our own might, our own strength, but by Your Spirit!

Zechariah 4:1-10

Today’s passage describes a vision God gave to Zechariah. In it, the mountain is an illustration of a barrier or hindrance. We might wonder what these strange dreams can teach us today, but though the imagery is foreign, the principles are repeated throughout the Bible and are still relevant for our lives.

Zerubbabel, leader of Judah, and a group of 50,000 people had been released by their Babylonian captors to return to Jerusalem. There, God’s people began to rebuild the walls of the temple, but they were attacked by those living nearby. Consequently, the people became discouraged and were ready to give up.

In verse 6, God reminded Zerubbabel through Zechariah that progress is made “not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit.” In other words, when God calls us to a task, He Himself assumes responsibility for removing hindrances. God went on to ask, “What…
