Christmas, the real

  Isaiah 9:6 >> Because a child is born, a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace;

Think of Christmas season. Parties, lights and gifts oh how we like the gifts. We like to give presents to  honor loved ones.
God also in love, gave us a great Christmas present, the difference is He did not come wrapped in paper, but in love. It was not found beneath a tree, but on the cross. It was not wrapped with ribbons, but with blood.
But thinking of you and me some minutes, imagine how someone can love us so much? What had attracted us to him?
Do you remember the story of "Beauty and the Beast"? A handsome man is in a beast transformed by a curse. It is the ugly beast, ugly, bitter locked in a castle. Attracted to a beautiful young lady who falls in love with him and kiss him making him free of the curse. Some similarities with our lives. Eden perfect but, by the sin transformed in a wild beasts.

     Isaiah 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray, each of us was off the road, but the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

How can we go a day without sinning? No worries, anxiety, envy, jealousy, anger. And yet he cared, but was not a kiss that saved us. He stood in our place, became "beast" to make us "beautiful." 1 Peter 1:18-20 knowing that it was not with perishable things like silver or gold that you were ransomed from your futile way that you bequeathed your fathers, but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ, foreknown indeed before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for your sake.

Yes, and in these conditions gave us the right to choose. Choose of our salvation.
We can not choose many things in our lives, but we have some choices such as:
Choose between the gate narrow or large
between the path space or tight
the crowd and the small group. Matthew 7:13,14
Imagine the scene: Jesus on the cross between two other crosses with two thieves. Thieves start mocking the conversation ... Matthew 27.42  He saved others, himself he can not save himself. It's the King of Israel! Down from the cross, and believe in him. He trusted in God, let Him deliver him now, if indeed he wants him, for he said: I am the Son of God. And they also told him swearing thieves who were crucified with him. But something changes in the end  Luke 23:40-43 Responding to him, But the other rebuked him, saying: Do you not fear God, are under the same sentence? We indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this did no harm. Jesus, remember me when You come into Your kingdom. Jesus answered, Verily I say to you today will be with me in paradise.
 Why Jesus does not make a call and urges the other to save after all, the shepherd goes after the lost sheep, the woman clears the house behind the lost coin ... but what about the father of the prodigal? Why not go look for his son. Because as the thief on the cross was not lost and  prodigal so not innocent, he chose where to be.
Sometimes God sends blessings and signs to warn us or call us attention, sometimes the silence coming from Him is giving us freedom to choose where we will spend eternity.
It may be that we have no right to choose many things in this life: appearance, hair, eyes, gifts ... but where to spend eternity yes, we can choose. Would you prefer that it be otherwise? You choose to be an excellent violinist and have a super IQ but not your eternity depends on you?
The thief on the cross may have made many bad choices in his life but a choice has changed his eternity and surpassed all the other bad choices.
Cain and Abel, same parents two different choices Genesis 4
Thieves on the cross, the same situations and different choices.
Now, the same ministry and different choices.
We can now decide where to spend our eternity.
Jesus loved the thief to forgive him and loved other enough to honor his choice.
If today you hear the voice of the Lord will not harden your heart
Yours is the decision.
blessed season

Disney Channel

I think that Disney Channel should come with a warned: danger for teenagers
#1 - they encourage futility.  People are what the wear, eat, school they study and outside appearance
#2 - to Disney channel, teenager know everything. Their parents always are wrong in the end when do not allow them follow what they want and think be the best for their life (as if like teenager we know all that is good and better to lived!) To Disney parents are that bored people that is in our life just to say NO when we want have fun or follow our feeling. All adult know that when we are teenager  our feelings are intense and each experience we have, we think be the bigger and only, teenager think that what they live is the only day, love and opportunity in all life. It is why we have parents, to show us that life is more than our 14 or 16 years already lived and more experiences we will get along of our lives! Almost don't have parents in their programs and, when have parents, they are coadjutants because their sons gains the money that maintain the house.

#3 – some characters   just depreciated their friend because some of them do not have too much money like them!
#4 – For them, brothers compete more than are partners, friends and helpers one of others.
WHAT does THE word FAMILY means to Disney Channel? Think about =)
What kind of character and values we are putting in our kids when we allow them watch this many hours.
Some families spend more time in front of TV than with bible or at church or church works.

Remember what bible says

The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron. Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress. Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers. 
1 Timóteo 4:15-16

God bless


Verse of The day - be Priest

Something called my attention today while I read my bible.. the precious Jesus' blood..

Revelation 1:5,6 5 and from Jesus Christ,who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood, 6 and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve his God and Father—to him be glory and power for ever and ever!

Yes, is great to see how He Has loved us. He made us clean and worth to heaven, even living in this world we don't need be under its spirits because we lives by Holly Spirit.
OK, wonderful but it means more than say I'm saved or judge the humanity. be saved implies in responsibility! We were made priest what means pray, preach and share God to the world. Yes, how people will know about things if we do not preach. Use this Christmas season to say that it is an special time no because everybody be 'good' and change gifts, this season exist to say to world each single year that SOMEONE was born and died to pay for sins of those who cannot pay, what means, you, me and any men. Jesus is more than a little boy in a manger. He is King and deliver for those ho accept HIM.
Preach the word
share His love
Do not be afraid
Do not thing that isn't about you
We are responsible, as priest, to intercede 
what have you doing like priest ?
feel free to share and send clues!
blessings folks
Christmas is Christmas if Jesus be the center.


Valores da vida

Pouca coisa me surpreende nesse mundo, isso é verdade, mas que fico extasiada quando vejo o que o ser humano se torna quando não está nos caminhos de Deus, isso fico. Meu Deus! Na verdade eu tenho que concordar com a bíblia que diz em 2 Pedro 2:22 ... Volta o cão ao seu vômito, e a porca lavada volta a revolver-se no lamaçal, sim, eles voltam à lama e ao vômito! Sendo assim, não há muito que fazer a não ser contemplar horrorizada a vergonha deles.
... e reservar para o dia do juízo os injustos, que já estão sendo castigados; 10especialmente aqueles que, seguindo a carne, andam em imundas concupiscências, e desprezam toda autoridade. Atrevidos, arrogantes, não receiam blasfemar das dignidades, 12Mas estes, como criaturas irracionais, por natureza feitas para serem presas e mortas, blasfemando do que não entendem, perecerão na sua corrupção, 13recebendo a paga da sua injustiça; pois que tais homens têm prazer em deleites ã luz do dia; e insaciáveis no pecar; engodando as almas inconstantes, tendo um coração exercitado na ganância, filhos de maldição; 15 os quais, deixando o caminho direito, desviaram-se, ... 19prometendo-lhes liberdade, quando eles mesmos são escravos da corrupção; porque de quem um homem é vencido, do mesmo é feito escravo. 20Porquanto se, depois de terem escapado das corrupções do mundo pelo pleno conhecimento do Senhor e Salvador Jesus Cristo, ficam de novo envolvidos nelas e vencidos, tornou-se-lhes o último estado pior que o primeiro. 21Porque melhor lhes fora não terem conhecido o caminho da justiça, do que, conhecendo-o, desviarem-se do santo mandamento que lhes fora dado. 22Deste modo sobreveio-lhes o que diz este provérbio verdadeiro; Volta o cão ao seu vômito, e a porca lavada volta a revolver-se no lamaçal. 2 Pedro 2:10-22
A cegueira espiritual para a qual voltaram os leva a uma vida vã, vergonhosa e vazia, uma vez que possuem o conhecimento de que nada nesse mundo pode supri-los, buscam em vão o preenchimento das horas do dia em coisas realmente tolas.
Seus desejos os engodam deixando-os envoltos a vergonha e futilidade. Suas palavras expostas a público (obrigada facebook e internet por permitir-nos ver o interior de certas pessoas que quando sentam em frente ao computador sentem-se a vontade para abrirem seus vazios corações, expondo ao mundo que realmente o conhecimento de Deus os está longe, e que um coração vazio é fonte de inutilidade e vergonha. São por eles mesmos envergonhados e nem se dão conta!) mostram que o ser humano sem Deus é realmente nada. Em João 9 Jesus se depara com um cego de nascença e, após uma, digamos, diferente abordagem de cura, permite o fim da cegueira física do rapaz abrindo uma oportunidade de vida nova! “E passando Jesus, viu um homem cego de nascença... cuspiu no chão e com a saliva fez lodo, e untou com lodo os olhos do cego, disse-lhe: Vai, lava-te no tanque de Siloé. E ele foi, lavou-se, e voltou vendo.”
Novas portas. Oportunidades e nova vida, agora não mais dependente de pessoas o rapaz aprenderia a confiar em Deus e depender de seus próprios esforços para vencer. Quando as pessoas são cegas espirituais, ou mundanas, elas são dependentes... Dependentes de outros para serem felizes, dependentes de festas e círculos de amizades. Entregam-se a vícios e criam situações que as tornam mais dependentes em um circulo infinito de vazio no qual põem toda sua atenção, dinheiro, pensamentos e emoções. Põem suas vidas vazias em um circulo vicioso vazio que passa a ser tudo que são, ou seja, nada. E por serem cegas, não veem isso, pensam apenas que a vida é assim.
Porém queridos leitores, a pior cegueira não é de pessoas como esse rapaz que nasceu cego, uma vez que ele não fora responsável por seu estado, sua cura vem, dá gloria a Deus e o liberta para salvação. No entanto, a pior cegueira pertence aqueles que dizem ‘eu vejo’. 40 Alguns fariseus que ali estavam com ele, ouvindo isso, perguntaram-lhe: Porventura somos nós também cegos? 41 Respondeu-lhes Jesus: Se fosseis cegos, não teríeis pecado; mas como agora dizeis: Nós vemos, permanece o vosso pecado. Algumas pessoas têm se tornado cegas por suas escolhas. Têm abandonado a doutrina do amor, piedade, humildade e perdão para seguirem a vaidade de seus corações e as vãs filosofias do mundo.
Para aqueles que deliberadamente abrem mão de andar com Deus e escolhem a volta para a vida mundana, não há muito mais o que lhes dizer ou acrescentar, visto que a Palavra é clara quando diz: Hebreus 6 Porque é impossível que os que uma vez foram iluminados, e provaram o dom celestial, e se fizeram participantes do Espírito Santo, e provaram a boa palavra de Deus, e os poderes do mundo vindouro, e depois caíram, sejam outra vez renovados para arrependimento; visto que, quanto a eles, estão crucificando de novo o Filho de Deus, e o expondo ao vitupério. Pois a terra que embebe a chuva, que cai muitas vezes sobre ela, e produz erva proveitosa para aqueles por quem é lavrada, recebe a bênção da parte de Deus; mas se produz espinhos e abrolhos, é rejeitada, e perto está da maldição; o seu fim é ser queimada.
Ainda temos tempo para escolhermos o caminho pelo qual seguiremos, ou melhor, para permanecermos no caminho que já escolhemos e não permitamos que as futilidades desse mundo engodem nosso entendimento, pois há muito mais de Deus reservado pra os que andam com perseverança. Lembrando também que não é penoso o caminho de Deus como muitos pregam por ai (1 João 5:3 seus mandamentos não são penosos)

Mas de vós, ó amados, esperamos coisas melhores, e que acompanham a salvação, ainda que assim falamos. 10Porque Deus não é injusto, para se esquecer da vossa obra, e do amor que para com o seu nome mostrastes, porquanto servistes aos santos, e ainda os servis. Hebreus 6:9,10





Valor próprio e coisas como as tais, não se encontram no mundo nem andando em seus rudimentos. Valores como esse são agregados à vida das pessoas que creem e andam com Deus.

Você vale muito para retroceder. Seja firme na presença de Deus e não deixe o mundo inútil te colocar no mesmo pacote. Fomos comprados pelo Sangue de Jesus, valemos muito mais com certeza.



Values - what is a life without God

Very little things surprises me in this world, this is true, but I'm ecstatic when I see that man becomes when he is not in the ways of God, that I am. My God! Actually I have to agree with what the Bible says in 2 Peter 2:22 ... Return the dog to his vomit, and the sow that was washed back to wallowing in the mire, yes, they go back to the mud and vomit! Thus, there is not much to do but contemplate their shame horrified.

... and reserve for the day of Judgement the wicked, who are already being punished; 10 those who after the flesh, walking in lust of defilement, and despise authority. Bold and arrogant, not afraid to speak evil of dignities, 12 these, like irrational creatures by nature meant to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of you do not understand, perish in their corruption, 13 getting the wages of unrighteousness; men that take pleasure to revel in the day, and cease from sin, beguiling unstable souls, having a heart exercised in covetousness, children of cursing; 15 who, forsaking the right way, they turned away, ... 19 promising them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, the same is made a slave. 20 so if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein and overcome, them became the last state worse than the first. 21 better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after knowing it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. 22 befallen them so what does this saying true; Return the dog to his vomit and the sow that was washed back to wallowing in the mire. 2 Peter 2:10-22

The spiritual blindness for which again leads to a wasted life, shameful and empty, as they have the knowledge that nothing in this world can supply them, will seek in filling the hours of the day things really silly.
Their desires entice them,  leaving them wrapped in shame and futility. His words exposed to the public (thanks facebook and internet for allowing us to see the inside of certain people because when they sit at your computer, feel free to open their hearts empty, exposing to the world that really the knowledge of God is far and an empty heart that is source of worthlessness and shame. They are embarrassed by them and not realize!) show that the human being is really nothing without God.

In John 9 Jesus encounters a man born blind, and after, say, different approach to healing, allows the end of the physical blindness of the boy, opening a new lease of life! 
"And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man blind from birth ... spat on the ground and made mud with the saliva, and smeared with mud eyes of the blind man said unto him, Go, wash yourself in the pool of Siloam. And he went and washed, and came seeing. "
New doors. Opportunities and new life, no longer dependent on people, from now learn to trust God and rely on his own efforts to win. When people are blind spiritual or mundane, they are dependent ... Dependent on others to be happy, dependent parties and circles of friends. Indulge in vices and create situations that make them more dependent on an infinite circle of emptiness in which they put all their attention, money, thoughts and emotions. They put their lives in a vicious circle empty void that is now all they are, or anything. And because they are blind, don’t see,  just think it's life.  
But dear readers, is not the worst blindness of people like this boy who was born blind, since he was not responsible for your condition, your healing comes, give glory to God for salvation and release. However, the worst blindness belongs to those who say 'I see'. 40Some Pharisees who were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also? 41 Jesus answered them: If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see, your sin remains. Some people have become blinded by their choices. Have abandoned the doctrine of love, compassion, humility and forgiveness to follow the vanity of their hearts and the vain philosophies of the world.
For those who deliberately give up walking with God and choose to return to the mundane, there's not much else to say or add to them, since the Word of God is clear when he says:Hebrews 6 it is impossible for those who were once enlightened and have tasted the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Spirit, and tasted the good word of God and the powers of the world to come, and then fell away, to renew them again unto repentance, because, as they are crucifying again the Son of God, and exposed to public shame. For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God, but if it bears thorns and briers is rejected and is nigh unto cursing; its goal is to be burned.
We still have time to choose the way in which we follow, or rather to stay on the path already chosen and let not the trifles of this world entice our understanding, for there is much more of God reserved for those who walk with perseverance. Recalling also that it is painful the way of God preach as many out there (1 John 5:3 His commandments are not burdensome)
But you, beloved, we expect better things, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak. God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labor of love to his name shows, because they ministered to the saints, and still do minister. Hebrews 6:9,10
Worth and things as such, are not walking in the world nor in its rudiments. Values ​​like theses are added to the lives of people who believe and walk with God.
You are worth far to turn back. Be firm in the presence of God and not let the world put you useless in the same package. We were bought by the Blood of Jesus, are worth much more for sure.


How to choose between faith and reason

When he heard the child ask:
And where is the lamb?
His heart bled
When she heard her father say:
God will provide!
His heart feared
And side by side in silence the two wept
Seeing the place of decision coming
A request like that part of the heart
How to choose between faith and reason
When say "no" option is
And faith asks you a Yes
When you need to confront
And the soul wants to escape
It's hard to be like Abraham
And the son deliver
Being Isaac and lie down
About the stones of the altar
When say "no" option is
And faith tells me one: Yes
When I have to face
My souls wants to run away
I need to be like Abraham
And all deliver
Being Isaac and lie down
About the stones of the altar
It takes courage to go up
It takes faith to accept
It takes strength and say: yes
And lying on the stones of the altar

when we read Genesis 22 we can think so many things but I will leave a question...
what have been your choose?!

Do not be afraid, God is sufficient!
