Reaching the impossible

 But when Jesus heard it, He answered him, saying, “ ‘Do not be afraid; only believe, and she will be made well’ 
Luke 8:50

In Scripture a man came to Jesus and said, “My little daughter is very sick. She is close to death. Will You come to my home and pray for her?” Jesus agreed. But along the way He kept getting stopped, one interruption after another. Finally, word came back to Him saying, “No need to come. You’ve waited too late. The little girl has died.”

The people were upset and very distraught. But Jesus said to them in Luke 8:50 “Don’t be afraid. If you will only believe, the little girl will be well.” Notice the phrase, “Only believe.” Jesus went to the home, laid hands on the little girl, and she came back to life.

Are you facing a situation that seems impossible? In the natural, you don’t see how you can get well, or how you can overcome the addiction, or how your family can ever be restored? God is saying to you what He said to them, “If you will only believe, I will turn the situation around. If you only believe, breakthroughs are headed your way!



 The Pruning Process

“He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful”
(John 15:2, NIV)

In life, we all go through a pruning process. God will prune our lives so that we can bear much fruit. To “prune” means something is cut away, something is removed. In other words, maybe a good friend that you counted on moved to another city.   Maybe a business shut down that you were connected to, or

a relationship went a different direction.

Friend, God knows what you need in your life in order to grow and flourish. Sometimes when things happen that we don’t understand, we have to just trust that He is working behind the scenes preparing you for increase, preparing you to go to another level. Don’t put a question mark where God has placed a period.

When you’re going through transition, don’t get bitter. Don’t get down and think it’s the end. Don’t start thinking that you’re a failure. Have the attitude, “God, I let this go knowing that it was only temporary provision, and what You have in my future will be greater than what I’m letting go of.” If you will accept the change and stay in faith, God will open new doors. He will bring new opportunities, new friendships, and take you to another level of His glory!

Real love in this Valentine's day

 The Greatest Love of All

“And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love”
(1 Corinthians 13:13, NKJV)

In our culture today, so many people are confused about what love is. We love pizza, movies and sports, but we also love our family or spouse. If we look to the Word of God, we see God’s definition of love. First Corinthians 13 tells us that “love is patient and kind. It does not envy, nor boast. It is not proud. It is not rude. It does not seek its own way, is not easily angered, and keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not rejoice in evil, but rejoices in the truth. Love believes, hopes and endures. Love never fails.” This is how God responds to us, and this is how we should respond to the people in our lives — with patience, kindness, hope, humility and love. Scripture tells us that God is love, and His character never changes!

Today and every day, know that God loves you with an everlasting love. He will never leave you nor forsake you. He is for you and has a good plan for you. Receive His perfect love today and let Him transform you from the inside out. His love is the greatest love and will last throughout all eternity!
Give your heart to Him. He never will relent of you. He always loves you, carry you and be with you


Time, Choice and the choice of good things

 Yes, one of the big problems of the 21st century is lack of the time. Ops, I think I'm wrong. lack of the time is not a 21st century problem, it is a problem that comes from before time start to be counted...

 When one of those at the table with him heard this, he said to Jesus, “Blessed is the one who will eat at the feast in the kingdom of God.” Jesus replied: “A certain man was preparing a great banquet and invited many guests. At the time of the banquet he sent his servant to tell those who had been invited, ‘Come, for everything is now ready.’ “But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said, ‘I have just bought a field, and I must go and see it. Please excuse me.’ “Another said, ‘I have just bought five yoke of oxen, and I’m on my way to try them out. Please excuse me.’ “Still another said, ‘I just got married, so I can’t come.’ “The servant came back and reported this to his master. Then the owner of the house became angry and ordered his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame.’ - Luke 14

Believe it or not, many good people who are involved in doing wonderful things do not go to heaven. Worse, many who consider themselves Christians and are convinced that they are going to heaven but will be outside of it! - even though they are not involved in gross sin or any thing wrong!

The Christians of whom I speak not use drugs or alcohol. Do not play. Do not indulge in pornography or sexual perversion. Are not among those who are corrupt or vile. In fact, you can find many of them in church on Sunday morning. And they spend most of their free time with friends and family, enjoy nice things. They are people of family and family values.
Having said that, I wish to make an even bolder statement - which may offend some. However, I do so love interest for those in the church of Jesus Christ who can not see they are heading toward disaster: some are in danger of losing their own souls - even though they sat in the church, are absolutely convinced that the way the heaven !
My point is this: some believers will be shut out of heaven not because of the bad things they did - but because they were so anxious to do good things and legitimate to neglect the ones that really count: the eternal things.

Lack of the time is not about clock. Lack of the time is about CHOICE. Good people are loosing their place in the heaven and I am nothing talking about bad people, prostitutes or thief. People chose house, family...
These people are so busy with every detail of daily life, which literally have no time for the deeper things of spiritual life. They are giving their sweat to build their businesses, advance their careers, support their families - but the target of interest was completely out of order!

The Bible says, "But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and all these things shall be added" (Matt. 6:33).

These are words of Christ himself, and not a suggestion but a commandment. Jesus means what He says, "If you seek the Lord first, He will take care of all the things you have worked hard - career, business, home, family. But you must make him their number one priority ! "
The apostle Paul adds:

"Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hidden with Christ in God" (Col. 3:2-3)
Please understand: God has never demanded that we all sell our houses, land and property, never said we need to quit our jobs and become monks, going to dedicate ourselves entirely to meditation and Bible study. (Yes, Jesus said this, but for one man - because this man's possessions had become their idols. God does not say this to everyone.)
The greatest indignity that any Christian can commit against the Lord is to put him in a secondary position. This is a slap in the face of God. You may find that he is not guilty of such an affront to him - but how do you prioritize your time? For example, how many times have you missed church for the benefit of your business? On these occasions, there were customers who were waiting for - God was. They were put first, above his interests!
I understand that you can not help missing church if you have a job that prevents you from attending - if for example, a nurse or a night worker. But I'm talking about people who have a choice - those who run their own business, for example, and who choose to work instead of attending the house of God. The Bible warns:

"Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some, but exhorting one and all the more as ye see the day approaching" (Heb. 10:25).
"As the days of Noah, is also in the days of the Son of man, eating, drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark and the flood came and destroyed everyone. same happened in the days of Lot: they ate, drank, bought, sold, planting and building, but the day Lot left Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. This is the day when the Son of man revealed "(Luke 17:26-30).

Look again at this list Jesus gives us, and consider the things that people did at that time. We know that there was violence as the world had never seen, along with gross immorality such as sodomy and homosexuality. But Jesus does not speak any of these things here. Nor does he mention alcoholism or perversion. Instead, note carefully what he says that people were doing just before the condemnation fall upon them: eating, drinking (but He does not mention drunkenness), getting married, engaged, buying, selling, planting, building. There is no sin in this list. All these things are good, legitimate.

Why, then, Jesus focuses on just the good, legitimate things people did in the days before the trial? It is because He is trying to tell us something vital:

He is warning us As Our total disregard his word to become completely absorbed by our own interests!
Think about it: The Bible never speaks a word saying that Noah was mocked, mistreated or persecuted during the 120 years he worked with the ark. Apparently, his work and his preaching were never interrupted. God is saying, "Yes, there was violence and corruption at the time. But the vast majority of the people were so busy doing good, legitimate, they had no time to reflect on the warnings of Noah Everyone was too busy to marry , out to eat, to get involved with friends and enjoy the pleasure, they had no time to listen. "
The preaching of Noah was lost in the midst of a great outrage Business!
I can write books and preach messages about coming judgments, however, with the exception of a small remnant of believers, just listen and keep my words. The masses of Christians do not care. Why? It is because they are involved in their own plans for marriage, children, home, job, career. Do not have time to listen to messages about the coming of the Lord!

"This will be the day when the Son of man is revealed" (Luke 17:30). Jesus is warning: "Shall the same as last generation.'ll Be so busy, so involved with their own interests, they will put aside all my interests!"

It has been for centuries. Many are convinced they are bound for heaven. But week after week, they neglect the house of God, the word of God, prayer, worship. However, this procedure is not sinful in his own eyes:

"... Why then, says my people ... will come no more unto thee? ... ... My people have forgotten me days without number. ... Yet you say I am innocent .. . " (Jerem. 2:31-31,35)

These people may be doing good, legitimate things - but the Lord is not the first for them! He is not the center of their lives. If he were, do not brush him aside. They would find time to be with him!

Did you give Jesus a partial acceptance?

You could say: "I have to earn my living. The Lord understands." Not so! He will never understand - nor ever accept - the fact we put the background in relation to someone or something.

This sin of putting family before the Lord is one of the sins most damaging in the Church today

I know housewives who find it difficult to go to church on Sunday morning, than do anything else. But during the week, they have time left to muck around! They are always running, doing something special for their children. They make time for dance classes, music for school functions, parties, picnics, sports, shopping. And the list keeps growing. But for the things of God, they think a short time. The incoming message is this: "My kids come first!"

I tell you, if you neglect the interests of God and put their children first, you cursed them! This is what happened with Hezekiah and Manasseh. The Lord gave Hezekiah fifteen more years of life, he should spend years bending to the Lord and bringing renewal to Israel. Instead, Hezekiah spent those years playing with adult toys, collecting jewelry, livestock, and building construction. The son he created during these years, Manasseh the father watched his toys and putting family first. The result? Manasseh became one of the most wicked kings in Israel's history.

What was the sin of the three men in this parable? It was the land, oxen and family interests all put aside the invitation to enjoy the intimacy and communion with you. Do not get me wrong: all the things they were doing was good and legitimate. But they became sinful - unforgivable - to steal your time these gentlemen and their reverence for the Lord!

If Jesus is not the apple of his eye - if you are not focused on Him, in His church in His word, His interests - you can not be His disciple. Better you be an outcast, to being so hypocritical!

Again I say, in love, many of you who are reading this message will not be able to - unless they make a commitment today:

"Lord, from this moment, I commit myself before Thee who will be the center of my life. Everything else will be secondary. You're everything to me, Jesus. And I know that, otherwise, everything else will be in vain ! "


The Sacrifice of Praise

“Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name”

Have you ever thought about what it means to continually offer up a sacrifice of praise? That word “sacrifice” means that it cost you something. It means doing something when you don’t feel like it. It’s when you say, “God, I’m hurting, but Igive You praise.” “God, I’m lonely, but I give You praise.” “God, it wasn’t fair. They did me wrong, but I give You praise.”
When you praise God beyond your feelings, that’s when praise becomes your faith at work. That’s when praise becomes a weapon. Nothing gets God’s attention any more than when you call on Him in your time of trouble. When most people would become negative and bitter, you have a song of praise. You’re thanking God for who He is and what He will do in your life. You’re not talking about how big your problems are; you’re talking about how big your God is!
Today, understand that praise activates God’s power. He commands us to praise because it opens the door to His victory and blessing. No matter what is happening around you, worship Him! Declare His goodness and see His restoration in every area of your life


The spirit of faith is in our words

“Since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, ‘I believed and therefore I spoke,’ we also believe and therefore speak” 2 Corinthians 4:13

Scripture says, “The spirit of faith is in our words.” My question today is, “What’s coming out of your mouth?” Are you talking about how big your problems are, or are you talking about how big your God is?

As believers, our attitude should always be an attitude of praise — “Father, business may be slow, but I want to thank You that You’re supplying all of my needs.” “My circumstance may seem impossible, but thank You, God, that all things are possible with You!” We should always find a reason to give thanks!
This is what Jonah did. After complaining for eight verses, he had a change of heart in verse nine. He said, “God, in spite of my difficulties, I’m going to offer unto You the sacrifice of praise with a voice of thanksgiving.” While sitting in the belly of the whale, instead of complaining, he began to worship. The next verse says that the whale spit him out onto dry ground, and he went on to fulfill his destiny.
If you feel like you’re in the belly of a whale, if you feel trapped, if things seem dark, remember, praise always precedes the victory! Open your mouth and declare His praises! Say what the Word says and watch the breakthrough come to pass!


The Long Way

When we give our lives to Jesus, we have to believe that He is guiding and protecting us all the time. here, even people were ready to battle, God guide them afar from war and what it means to us? - Some times God guide us to the longer way to protect us. He knows us and knows our limit. we until think that we are ready but God knows, so, if  you think that what you want is taking a long time to find, remember maybe God is guiding you in the long way to protect you! He always loves us and have the best! 

Be Blessed, 
Seja abençoado!

"Though a sinner do evil a hundred times, and prolong his, surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God"


World versus God

World versus God, an eternal conflict! Why? Well,  people are bad and some times is hard to them understand that all that God wants is heal, help and love us. Follow me in this case:

Genesis 19:12-14 12 The two men said to Lot, “Do you have anyone else here? Get them out of here, because we are going to destroy this place. So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, He said, “Hurry and get out of this place, because the LORD is about to destroy the city!” But his sons-in-law thought he was joking.

The sin of a whole city for many year cry out to God's ears. God is merciful but when He says NO more, it means no more and it was what happen here. God sent His serves to decree His will and destroy these 2 cities ( know more bout God's merciful in Genesis 18:16-33 ).
Inside the city had a man of God and through him God said would save many people, all those who just come with him. So Lot went to call his people... ' hey folk, come with me because god will destroy the city! AND what happen? People run and follow Lot??? NO, they laugh and thought Lot was joking! SOME SIMILARITY WITH OUR DAYS???  
 Yes, in our days is the same. We say, shout, claim and what people say? LoL you folks just speak abut this. Some of them say: you are ignorant, science says other things open your minds! Yes and with things like that many people are just going to their end!
 We say God sent His own SON JESUS to forgive sin of all those who believe and a day He will come back to carry with Him those who live in this earth in according with His direction!
Well the end of this is: ...4 Then the LORD rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah—from the LORD out of the heavens. 25 Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, destroying all those living in the cities—" Genesis 19
From now like that time, God speaks LOUD and say: Go off from prostitution, lie, envy, idolatry, and things like that and come to me because I have seen these sins and it will not be without punishment! 


Words of the lasts days

      Many things that I am thinking yet about what to post. I like talk about God has talking with me and my church,  just somethings that I have reading and seeing at facebook and some blogs have taken my breath away! I never understand why Christians use their spaces on internet to fight and say against other Christians! I am not sure about others countries but here in Brazil believers has attacking believer, woow!  Maybe it is about called. I have mine and it is spread the Gospel, it is what I will do now. I just ask if you have to fight, lets together fight against darkness, ok?! =)      We start again our yearly bible read and is great how God speaks with us every single time we stop to read His words. I great see how God create everything and did everything right.
Some nice things in Genesis, lets together to a brief:
1 - God create things and after it, He SEPARATE. (Genesis 1) Yes separation is something that God do to show His will and what he approve. Paul the apostle some times said: "1 Corinthians 11:19 No doubt there have to be differences among you to show which of you have God’s approval." So next time do not be shocked with some separations, it comes from God to show 'who are who'. ( hope this expression make sense in English too lol)
2 - Genesis 1:11-20 In the creation's process God says a word and things just come to existence. Other times He send a word of order. He start and says now it is up to you. Important in our lives is to discern God's word, sometimes He says and it is done, but sometimes He gave a word to star and we have to work in the process. Do not murmur or complain against God, learn to listen to Him and understand what He said to YOU.

3 - Genesis 2:23 The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh... Genesis 3:12 The man said, “The woman you put here with me.
I love bible!! how changes so fast?! How someone that is 'flesh of my flesh' few time after become the woman YOU PUT HERE!!! Did you see some similarity? Sometimes we do that. We say wow it is great, I love and things like that... time pass and we say: why YOU does that God?! yes dear believer, after sin things change, nothing more is like before. Sin changes everything, what is beautiful become ugly, what is pleasant become bitter and what is blessing become curse. Advice? think two times before listen to devil one.
4 - Genesis 3 the devil one always will try show you what you don't have to see. He always is in the middle of the God's people trying to say that God is not good or that God has hiding good things from us, pay attention. DO NOT LISTEN THE SERPENT. People that walk around you always trying to show what you are nothing looking for and trying say God said but it is not like that.. forget, abandon these kind of people before you sin!
5 - Genesis 3:17:19 - To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’
“Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food from it
all the days of your life. 8 It will produce thorns and thistles for y ou,
some of our deeds brings us thorns and thistles! be careful about your chooses!
Well, it is all for today, I will be back soon. Hope these words can help and guide you in a blessed way!
lots of love in Jesus

Word of the day - Listen to

"And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear... Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.”

Sometimes God send one word and everything happen, other times, He send a order and we have to produce with His direction. We have to learn to discern what God has talking and listen to His voice to not lay down in time of war and fight in time of rest. 
Learn listen to God.
God I pray today that By YOUR Holy Spirit, help us to discern Your voice because when we act outside of the time we get many bad consequences, help us listen to You, in Jesus Name.

Hope in the dark

       Genesis 1:1-3

          What is great in this statement is: doesn't matter how terrible, formless or never-racking be your life, plans or dreams, IF you are with God and the Holy spirit are in your life, there is hope.
          We are starting a new year and my word to you is: lift up your face. Look to God and shout to Him. When God send a single word everything become LIGHT.

My prayer for you today is: Dear Jesus, You know everything about us. You know our weakness, strength and that some times our behavior brings us darkness but what I claim to YOU today is, send us YOUR word and for your mercy send us light to put things in the right place.
Pray in Jesus name, amen.
