EXODUS 32 25 And when Moses saw that the people had broken loose (for Aaron had let them break loose, to the derision of their enemies), 26 then Moses stood in the gate of the camp and said, “Who is on the Lord's side?

  5. "...(He) is the God of the waves and the billows, and they are still His when they come over us; and again and again we have proved that the overwhelming thing does not overwhelm. Once more by His interposition deliverance came. We were cast down, but not destroyed." ~ Amy Carmichael TAJIKISTAN: Church Leader in Solitary Confinement Sources: World Watch Monitor, Forum 18 Photo: World Watch Monitor A Tajik church leader who was serving a three-year sentence for "singing extremist songs in church and so inciting religious hatred" has been moved to a prison located 350 kilometres from his home and placed in solitary confinement. Pastor Bakhrom Kholmatov was sentenced in July under the Tajik Criminal Code (Article 189). A previous report on the arrest and sentencing of this church leader can be found here. The 42-year-old pastor, who is married with three children, was arrested on unspecified charges during an April 10th raid on his Khujand city church by the National Security Committee secret police. After his transfer to a prison in the city of Yavan, south of the capital Dushanbe, Tajik authorities stated that it was "normal procedure" to place convicts in solitary confinement for 15 days before they are released into the main prison. Officers interrogated and beat up other church members at the time of the arrest, and removed Christian songbooks which they described as "extremist." The secret police, alongside other law enforcement agencies and the State Committee for Religious Affairs, also raided affiliated churches in northern Tajikistan's Sogd region in February; and, in March, officials closed down a church in Konibodom (about 80 kilometres east of Khujand) after interrogating and torturing church members. Pastor Bakrom's accusers may be seeking to cause him harm, yet our Almighty God promises in His Word to ultimately turn this situation around for the good of those who love Him, while also orchestrating a plan that will save many lives (Romans 8:28; Genesis 50:20). Even though false allegations are being presented, pray that the Lord will work out His greater purposes -- powerfully mediating on behalf of the imprisoned pastor and speaking truth into the hearts of those in need of eternal salvation. Although the security of believers in this country are seriously under threat, may they be reminded that true safety and rest lie in the One who provides supernatural help, strength and comfort in times of need. BURMA: Two Pastors Charged for Alleged Spying Source: Morning Star News Photo: Morning Star News On October 27th, two assistant pastors arrested by the army in Burma (Myanmar) last December were sentenced to prison on false charges of unlawful association, defaming the military and spying. Pastor Dom Dawng Nawng Latt received a prison term of four years and three months, and Pastor Lang Jaw Gam Hseng was sentenced to a term of two years and three months. The two ethnic Kachin pastors were charged under the Unlawful Association Act for alleged connections with an armed ethnic group, the Kachin Independence Organization, and apparently spying for it -- even though there was no evidence to support these claims. Pastor Dom received the additional two years under the defamation charge as he was accused of criticizing the army and speaking too frequently with members of the media. According to credible sources, the two pastors were likely arrested and charged due to an event that happened in November of last year. During this period, both pastors had assisted local journalists who were reporting on army attacks in Shan state. These attacks caused considerable damages to a church building, as well as community schools and homes. The two pastors took the journalists to the St. Francis Xavier Church building which, at the time, had just been bombed by Burmese army jets. The initial arrests of the pastors took place on December 24th of last year when they went to the Byuha Gone military base to negotiate the release of a civilian couple who were detained for complaining to army officials about the destruction of their house. Although suspects are supposed to be tried after no more than 28 days, the pastors were held for several months without a trial. More about their case, including information on Pastor Dom's health challenges, is available here. Despite the nature of these charges, pray that both imprisoned pastors will remain loyal and true to their ministry calling. May these Christian leaders and their families continually "hope in the Lord" who will assuredly "renew their strength" (Isaiah 40:31). In the midst of this difficult situation, may these believers wholeheartedly cling to Him and firmly dedicate themselves to His greater cause -- recognizing this time as an opportunity to minister to others in prison as they await their hopeful release. PRAISE REPORT KAZAKHSTAN: Release of Christian Convert Source: VOM USA Photo: VOM USA On October 2nd, Yklas Kabduakasov, a Christian convert from Islam, was released from prison after spending more than two years in detention for allegedly "inciting religious hatred." Following his arrest on August 14th, 2015, Yklas spent time in pre-trial detention, under house arrest and, finally, forceful service at a labour camp. During his trying two-year ordeal, Yklas was greatly blessed by the numerous letters he received from those who expressed concern and prayer support for him. (For further information on how VOM's letter-writing ministry is encouraging imprisoned believers like Yklas, please review this previous report.) Since Yklas has returned home to his wife and children, Kazakhstan's parliament is considering further restrictions on religious worship and resource materials. The proposed legislation would double fines and punishments for religious offenses. Already this year, two church congregations in Kazakhstan have been banned from worshipping. We are grateful for Yklas' release, and our prayer is that he will quickly adjust to life with his family outside of prison walls. May he use his testimony to continue boldly sharing the Gospel so those who hear it will be receptive to God's saving grace.

      You can post prayer requests in the open forum. However, they are not long writings. Just short requests. :)

  7. The world's oldest ruler, Robert Mugabe, has just removed his Vice President on claims of disloyalty. This comes after rising tensions regarding Mugabe's succession and next year's election. But amid these political transitions and turmoil, will anything really change? Zimbabwe's suffering seems unrelenting. Repression is commonplace Unemployment and poverty are pervasive The HIV/AIDS pandemic is one of the worst in the world Life expectancy is plummeting But the suffering has become a unique opportunity for the Church to express the love of Jesus. Through feeding the hungry, caring for orphans, protecting the vulnerable, and healing the sick, they love as Jesus loves - sacrificially and completely. May political uncertainty and widespread physical need open doors for the Gospel. And may Zimbabweans come to know Jesus - their only hope for today, tomorrow, and for eternity. Together let's watch and pray, The Prayercast Team
  8. JUDE 24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, 25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen. ROMANS 12 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. ESTHER 4 15 Then Esther bade them return Mordecai this answer, 16 Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish. Thanks everyone for praying for us, we truly appreciate it. We covet your prayers, please share this letter with everyone yo know, especially facebook and your church family. We really need your prayers Our big church has a real problem, because the leader in position does not want to go on leading the church and the other brother who could doesn't feel he can. Please pray that God raises up someone who can lead the church from either inside or outside the church to oversee the 13 family churches. Some of the churches are really struggling, one has one leader and three very old church members. Please pray for our church, in Helen's words Many of the people who come to church, don't know why they come. Please pray that a deep work of the spirit may take place in the hearts of everyone who comes to church. Please pray for our sunday school, we have up to 15 children. Please pray forr these precious little ones. Continue to pray for the men in the church esp F, who was healed of cancer, but doesn't want to know anything about God. Also pray for W, Y and H, who need to commit their lives fully to God. Thank God for people taking books for the books library. Continue to pray for F and her mother, who are locked into a very sinful lifestyle. Please surround Helen and I in prayer. We get up for early morning prayer, no one joins us, we pray at lunchtime and as soon as she arrives home. 20 people used to come to thursday prayer meeting, less then 8 now. We went to witness in park on saturday, only 3 church members turned up.. apart from me and Helen. But then isn't that the case, christians want comfort. They want to stay in their air conditioned churches and share gospel. Let me ask you, what is the first two letters of the word Gospel ..it is GO. If we can share gospel in China, why don't you? Please pray for M and Her mother, who I teach, they are very interested in the gospel. Please pray for our complex of ShengChengFengJing, it has 600 flats. There are many in great need. Please pray for our daughter Ming in Canada, it is very cold where she is. Please pray as we share gospel over the christmas period. Please pray as several so called members, who have left the church are now trying to recruit our members, they promote the love and prosperity gospel of Joel Osteen and Joseph prince. Helen will stand up in church to warn the rest of the church against them. We have confronted them individually and then with two or three of us and now is the final stand. Please pray against these false gospels, they spread like wildfire through China. We have been praying and trying for a baby since we were married, God has promised, but so far.. nothing. A lady who sometimes goes to the church has paid much to have twins through test tube,although she infrequently comes to church, she shows no fruit of salvation. Continue in prayer for us, surround us with your prayers, they are our covering. We pray betwen the following times 6:30-7:30am, 12:30-1pm, 5:30-6pm weekdays Thursday Night prayer meeting 7.30-9pm Please join us, we are serious about prayer.. are you? If you are then please join us. You can join us at the same time in your time zone. You can't pray for all of China, but you can adopt us as your church, please support us, pray for us. Please let us know if you are praying for us. Thanks so much Yao Hua Men Family Church Nanjing
  9. "God is too good to be unkind and He is too wise to be mistaken. And when we cannot trace His hand, we must trust His heart." ~ Charles Spurgeon IRAQ: Families Again Forced to Flee Hometown Sources: Christian Solidarity Worldwide, The Christian Post Hundreds of Iraqi Christian families had recently returned to their hometown of Teleskuf, after being displaced for years due to attacks perpetrated by the self-proclaimed Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist group, only to be forced to flee their northern Iraq community all over again. These families have since relocated to Alqosh and other Christian villages in the Nineveh Plains where they are now seeking refuge from the internal conflict that's presently taking place -- this time, between two of the country's governmental factions. The town of Teleskuf, which is located about 30 kilometres north of Mosul, initially fell into the hands of ISIS terrorists in 2014. Yet, since its liberation last year, the town was rebuilt with the help of the international community; in particular, the Hungarian government. The collaborative rebuilding efforts made it possible for many Christian families to return to their homes. However, now that rising tensions are taking place between the Central Government in Baghdad and the Kurdish Regional Government, there is a deepened level of sectarian strife in the rest of Iraq. Many civilians have been wounded in the conflict, resulting in the mutually shared security concerns of leaders representing various religious, political and civil society groups -- along with numerous internally displaced persons -- over the country's troubling situation. In light of the chaos that has ensued in Iraq, we join in the urgent prayers of His people for the need of peace in this country, especially in areas where the conflict is prevalent. May God help those from the town of Teleskuf overcome the severe trauma they have endured by strengthening their faith and ensuring their needs for safety and provision are amply met. Additionally, intercede for Iraq's political leaders, asking the Lord to grant them wisdom, diplomacy and direction as they seek to govern the country justly and for the overall betterment of the people. NIGERIA: Plateau State Attacks Include Fatal Shooting Source: Morning Star News Pray for the safety of the country's innocent citizens who are vulnerable to militant attacks. On October 24th, a Christian woman and her two children were killed in north-central Nigeria. Armed Muslim Fulani herdsmen ambushed and shot to death Rebecca Daniel Choji, her 16-year-old daughter Suzanna, and 29-year-old son Joel. Prior to the shooting, which took place in Jol village (located within the Riyom Local Government Area of Plateau State), the attacked family members had been on their way to a health facility in Vwak village. Suzanna and Joel died immediately, while their mother succumbed to gunshot wounds two days later at the Plateau State Specialist Hospital in Jos. At the time of the attack, the three victims were being driven to the health facility by a relative, Dachung Yakubu, who had also been wounded by the gunfire. Upon receiving this news report, Dachung was in critical condition at the hospital's Intensive Care Unit. This incident was part of a series of attacks committed by militant Fulani herdsmen who were targeting Christian communities in various areas of the Plateau State. A week prior, similar assaults were carried out in the villages around Miango town of Plateau State's Bassa Local Government Area. (A report on the release of a pastor, who had been abducted from the same Nigerian state a few months ago, may be found here.) Ask the Lord to provide greatly needed comfort and strength to the surviving loved ones of this tragically slain family. Also intercede for the many other Christians who have been victimized by the ruthless attacks of militants in the Plateau State, praying that they will not grow weary in well-doing nor lose hope. May God mightily intervene through the power of His Holy Spirit, manifesting His overcoming strength and love in the midst of such hatred and evil -- for the two-fold purpose of 1) ministering to His suffering people, and 2) transforming the hearts of the militants who've been inciting violence in these vulnerable Nigerian communities. UPCOMING EVENT CANADA: Momentum Conference Coming to Western Canada Source: VOMC's International Ministry Team In recent history, there have been news reports of many nations going through turmoil in epic proportions. There is reporting on the chaos of wars, governmental breakdown due to corruption, natural disasters, and the list goes on.... But there is very little, if any, (secular) news about the persecution of the faithful followers of Jesus Christ. All too often, when travelling to troubled nations, we find in the background that this particular group of people have been targets of militant Islamic aggression, communism, and opposition by extremist members of other religious sects.... Yet we thank God for the vision of Rev. Richard Wurmbrand. He gave us the mandate to not only be a "voice of the martyrs," but to also seek out our persecuted family members, minister to them and equip them -- no matter how restrictive or closed their nation may be. The Apostle Paul said to the saints in Rome, "First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, because your faith is being proclaimed throughout the whole world.... I long to see you...that I may be encouraged together with you while among you, each of us by the other's faith, both yours and mine" (Romans 1:8,11-12 NASB). Paul was confident that there would be mutual encouragement by spending time with other believers.... This is true for us today as we reach out to our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ. In fact, this is the essence of The Voice of the Martyrs' international ministry. As members of the same body, each of us is on a set course, navigating to heaven's shores where we will collectively be with our Saviour and Lord Jesus Christ. Until we arrive, every one of us must press on, remaining encouraged and strengthened by the faith of our fellow sojourners. At the upcoming Momentum conference in Calgary, Alberta, on November 18th, we will be discussing the realities, difficulties and blessings of working (with persecuted believers) in restricted nations. Please pray for this important event as our conference speakers and participants delve into this timely topic -- with the purpose of effectively accomplishing God's mandate for today's global church as a whole. More information on this event is available at VOMC's webpage. Additional Note: We ask you, our valued prayer partners, to not only pray for this month's Momentum conference but also for the upcoming VOMC leadership meetings which are scheduled to take place next week, leading up to the Saturday event. May the Lord's presence be evident at every gathering, His anointing experienced by each speaker and participant, His wisdom and guidance clearly and concisely revealed, and His plans for the present and future of His global church be fully realized. Like the Apostle Paul, we look forward to our next meeting with you, so we can all be further encouraged by one another's faith!

  10. WHAT JESUS WENT THROUGH.. FOR YOU 耶稣为你经历了什么 At the age of 33, Jesus was condemned to the death penalty. At the time crucifixion was the "worst" death. Only the worst criminals were condemned to be crucified. Jesus was to be nailed to the cross by His hands and feet. Each nail was 6 to 8 inches long. The nails were driven into His wrist, not into His palms as is commonly portrayed. There's a tendon in the wrist that extends to the shoulder. The Roman guards knew that when the nails were being hammered into the wrist, that tendon would tear and break, forcing Jesus to use His back muscles to support himself so that He could breathe. 在其33岁的时候,耶稣被判处死刑。当时,受钉十字架而死是“最糟糕的”死法。只有最坏的罪犯才会被判处钉十字架。耶稣的手和脚被钉在十字架上。每个钉子长6到8英寸。钉子钉在他的手腕上,而不是通常所说的手掌。手腕上有一条筋延伸到肩膀。罗马兵丁知道,当钉子钉在手腕上时,那条筋就会撕裂和破裂,迫使耶稣使用其背部肌肉来支撑自己,以使他还能呼吸。 Both of His feet were nailed together. Thus He was forced to support Himself on the single nail that impaled His feet to the cross. Jesus could not support himself with His legs because of the pain, so He was forced to alternate between arching His back then using his legs just to continue to breathe. Imagine the struggle, the pain, the suffering, the courage. 他的双脚被钉在一起。因此,他只好用将其双脚钉住十字架的单个钉子,来支撑自己身体的重量。因为太痛,耶稣不能用双腿支撑自己身体的重量,所以他被迫交替拱起他的背部,然后使用他的双腿,只是为了能继续呼吸。想象一下那种挣扎、疼痛、痛苦和需要的勇气。 Jesus endured this reality for over 3 hours. Yes, over 3 hours! Can you imagine this kind of suffering? A few minutes before He died, Jesus stopped bleeding. He was simply pouring water from his wounds. 耶稣忍受这种痛苦长达3个多小时。是的,超过3个小时!你能想象这种痛苦吗?他死前几分钟,耶稣停止流血。他的伤口只是在淌水。 From common images, we see wounds to His hands and feet and even the spear wound to His side... But do we realize His wounds were actually made in his body. A hammer driving large nails through the wrist, the feet overlapped and an even large nail hammered through the arches, then a Roman guard piercing His side with a spear. But before the nails and the spear, Jesus was whipped and beaten. The whipping was so severe that it tore the flesh from His body. The beating so horrific that His face was torn and his beard ripped from His face. The crown of thorns cut deeply into His scalp. Most men would not have survived this torture. He had no more blood to bleed out, only water poured from His wounds. The human adult body contains about 3.5 liters (just less than a gallon) of blood. 从一般的图片上,我们看到他手脚上的伤口,甚至他腰上被枪刺的伤口...但我们认识到他的伤口实际上是在他的身上。用锤子将大钉子钉在手腕上,双脚重叠,用一根大钉子穿过足弓,然后罗马兵丁用枪刺穿他的腰。但在使用钉子和枪之前,耶稣曾被鞭打和殴打。鞭打是如此严重,以致从他的身上撕下肉来。殴打如此可怕,以致他的脸撕破,他的胡子从他的脸上扯掉。荆棘的冠冕深深地切入他的头皮。大多数人不会幸免于这种折磨。他的血都流尽了,他的伤口只能淌水了。我们人类成年人的身体含有约3.5升(仅少于1加仑)的血液。 Jesus poured all 3.5 liters of his blood; He had three nails hammered into His members; a crown of thorns on His headband, beyond that, a Roman soldier who stabbed a spear into His chest. All these without mentioning the humiliation He passed after carrying His own cross for almost 2 kilometers, while the crowd spat in his face and threw stones (the cross was almost 30 kg of weight, only for its higher part, where His hands were nailed) 耶稣流尽了所有3.5升的血;他的身上钉了三个钉子;他的头上带着荆棘冠冕,除此之外,一个罗马士兵把枪刺入他的胸口。所有这些没有提及他所受到的羞辱。耶稣携带他自己的十字架后走了近2公里,而且过程中,有人朝他的脸上吐痰、扔石头(十字架几乎重30公斤,并只是到钉耶稣的双手的较高的地方) Worse of all of the above, was the wrath from his Father he had to endure. God's righteous anger was poured out upon him.. the righteous one.. to save us.. we who had no righteousness, but Jesus took our place, he took our punishment. God's justice and holiness were satisfied, so that his mercy and grace could be given to fallen man. 上面所有的情况中最糟糕的是,耶稣必须得忍受他的天父的烈怒。上帝的公义愤怒倾倒在他身上...义人...以拯救救我们...我们没有公义,但耶稣代替我们,承担了我们该受的惩罚。上帝的公义和圣洁得以满足,所以上帝的慈爱和恩典可以赐给堕落的人。 Jesus had to endure this experience, so that we can have free access to God. So that our sins could be "washed"away. All of them, with no exception! 耶稣必须忍受这种经历,以使我们能够自由接近上帝。以使我们的罪能“洗净”。所有的罪,没有例外! JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR US! He died for us! Let us forever worship Him and give thanks forever and worship at His feet. What will ye do with this Jesus? Will you respond like the thief and the religious leaders who cursed him? Will you wash your hands of him like Pilate? Will you mock Him like Herod? 耶稣为我们而死!他为我们死了!让我们永远敬拜他,永远感谢他,并匍匐在他的脚下敬拜。 你会如何对待耶稣? 你会像强盗和咒诅他的宗教领袖那样回应吗? 你会像本丢彼拉多那样逃避处死耶稣的责任吗? 你会像希律那样讥笑他吗? OR Will you accept Him as the Son of God.. like the Centurion and the second thief? The most important question ever is WHAT THINK YE OF CHRIST? The answer will determine, where you will spend eternity 或者 你会像百夫长和第二个强盗那样,接受耶稣作为上帝的儿子吗? 最重要的问题是你如何看待基督? 答案将决定你是永远待在天堂还是地狱
  11. GEM 1 COFFEE BREAK 茶歇时间 "Proud Or Humble?" “骄傲还是谦卑?” "For thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks". Psalm 18:27 “困苦的百姓,你必拯救;高傲的眼目,你必使他降卑”。诗篇18:27 This verse talks about two different kinds of people and God's dealing with each of them. They are the humble and the proud. The Greek word here for afflicted means: poor, afflicted, humble, lowly. The high looks translates to those who are lofty and exalts themselves. 这段经文讲到两类人以及上帝如何对待他们。这两类人是谦卑的和骄傲的人。在经文中出现的希腊词语“afflicted”是贫穷、困苦、卑微、低下的意思。高傲的眼目指的是那此傲慢并抬高自己的人。 This comparison of these two different people does not necessarily mean in the way they deal with and treat others. This isn't just about your attitude toward mankind. These have more to do with your attitude toward the Lord. 这两类人的区别不一定在他们如何对待其他人上。这区别不仅在于他们对人的态度,更在于他们对神的态度。 Which one of these people are you? Are you an humble person when it comes to the Lord? Have you and are you submitting yourself to His authority and Lordship over your life daily? Are you seeking Him for His guidance and direction? Or are you proud and boastful with a "can do" attitude? One that says, "I can do it. I know how. I don't need God to handle this. I can handle it by myself". Do you give Him the credit for what is accomplished in your life and through your life? Or do you take the credit for yourself? Are you proud of what your own hands have done? Are you humbling yourself before the mighty hand of God? Are you walking in the fear of the Lord? Or are you doing your own thing, going your own way with no regard given to the Lord? 你是哪一类人呢?你是一个在神面前谦卑的人吗?你一直以来都将自己委身在神的权能之下吗?你在寻求祂的教导和指引吗? 或者,你傲慢地自夸自己“一切都能做”吗? 你是那个说: “我能做,我知道怎么做,我不需要神来帮我处理问题,我靠自己就行”的人吗?你将你的成就或通过你而成就的归功于神呢,还是归功于你自己?你是为自己所做的而骄傲呢?还是在神的大能面前谦卑你自己?你是怀着一颗敬畏神的心呢?还是做自己的事,走自己的路,而全然不顾神? There are rewards for the humble and consequences for the proud: 谦卑和傲慢有两种不同的结果: 1、"A man's pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit". (Proverbs 29:23) “ 人的高傲,必使他卑下;心里谦逊的,必得尊荣。”(箴言书29:23) 2、"And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted". (Matthew 23:12) “凡自高的,必降为卑;自卑的,必升为高”(马太福音23:12) 3、"But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble". (James 4:6) “但祂赐更多的恩典,所以经上说:神阻挡骄傲的人,赐恩给谦卑的人。”(雅各书4:6) 4、"...God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time". (1 Peter 5:5b,6) “神阻挡骄傲的人,赐恩给谦卑的人。所以你们要自卑,服在神大能的手下,到了时候,祂必叫你们升高”。(彼得前书5:5-6) 5、"When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom". (Proverbs 11:2) “骄傲来,羞耻也来;谦逊人却有智慧”(箴言书11:2) 6、"Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud". (Proverbs 16:18,19) “骄傲在败坏以先;狂心在跌倒之前。心里谦卑与穷乏人来往,强如将掠物与骄傲人同分。”(箴言书16:18-19) Have a great day. There are rewards for the humble and consequences for the proud. Which one are you? And which will you receive?    祝你有美好的一天,谦卑和高骄有不同的结果。你是哪一种人呢?你会有什么结果呢? GEM 2 What does it mean for us to call God our Father? 我们 称呼神为父意味着什么? One of the most well-known statements of the Christian faith is the Lord's Prayer, which begins with the words "Our Father which art in heaven." This is part of the universal treasury of Christendom. When I hear Christians in a private gathering praying individually, almost every single person begins their prayer by addressing God as Father. There's nothing more common among us than to address God as our Father. So central is this to our Christian experience that in the nineteenth century, there were some who said the basic essence of the whole Christian religion can be reduced to two points: the universal brotherhood of man and the universal fatherhood of God. In that context I am afraid we have missed one of the most radical teachings of Jesus. 基督教信仰中最有名的祷告是主祷文,以“我们在天上的父”为开头。这是基督教世界中通用的宝贵的部分。当我听到一个基督徒在聚会的时候,几乎每个人祷告时都会称呼上帝为父亲。在我们中间没有什么比叫上帝为我们的父亲更加普遍的了。所以在19世纪基督徒的经历就是有些人说基督教信仰的关键可以被浓缩为两点:与人之间的弟兄关系和与神之间的父亲关系。在那篇文章里面我想我们错过了耶稣最关键的教导之一。 A few years ago, a German scholar was doing research in New Testament literature and discovered that in the entire history of Judaism—in all existing books of the Old Testament and all existing books of extrabiblical Jewish writings dating from the beginning of Judaism until the tenth century A.D. in Italy—there is not a single reference of a Jewish person addressing God directly in the first person as Father. There were appropriate forms of address that were used by Jewish people in the Old Testament, and the children were trained to address God in proper phrases of respect. All these titles were memorized, and the term Father was not among them. 几年前,一个德国的学者在新约圣经文学中做研究并发现在犹太教的整个历史中--在所有旧约和存在的犹太人作品中,从犹太教开始到主后10世纪在意大利---没有一个犹太人把上帝直接称呼为父。在旧约中有一些对上帝的称谓,小孩子被训练称呼上帝为某种尊称。所有这些称谓都有记录但是却没有称呼父亲的。 The first Jewish rabbi to call God "Father" directly was Jesus of Nazareth. It was a radical departure from tradition, and in fact, in every recorded prayer we have from the lips of Jesus save one, he calls God "Father." It was for that reason that many of Jesus' enemies sought to destroy him; he assumed to have this intimate, personal relationship with the sovereign God of heaven and the creator of all things, and he dared to speak in such intimate terms with God. What's even more radical is that Jesus says to his people, "When you pray, you say, 'Our Father.'" He has given to us the right and privilege to come into the presence of the majesty of God and address him as Father because indeed he is our Father. He has adopted us into his family and made us coheirs with his only begotten Son (Rom. 8:17). 第一个犹太拉比叫上帝为“父亲”的是拿撒勒的耶稣。这在传统上是重大的改变,实际上,在每一个耶稣的祷告中,祂称呼上帝为“父亲”,这也是耶稣的敌人要杀害祂的原因。祂和造物主至高无上的神天国的主有这种亲密的个人之间的关系。祂甚至和神说话的时候也这么的亲密。更关键的是祂和祂的百姓说“当你祷告的时候要说,我们的父”。祂给我们和至高神之间面对面的权利并且称呼神为我们的父亲因为祂的确是我们的父亲。祂已经收养了我们并且使我们和祂的儿子同做后嗣。(罗8:17) GEM 3 PASTOR CECIL “PASS THE MUSTARD PLEASE!” “请将芥菜传给我!” Matthew 17:20 马太福音 17:20 “- - - if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.” ...你们若有信心像一粒芥菜种,就是对这座山说:‘你从这边挪到那边!’,它也必挪去;并且你们没有一件不能做的事了。 What is the most difficult thing you are facing in your life right now? What task or tribulation is so great you feel like it is ready to flatten you out? Who is looming over you ready to do you harm? What mountain threatens to collapse on you? 目前在你生命中,你所要面对的最困难的事是什么?什么工作或苦难如此严重,让你疲惫不堪?谁对你构成潜在威胁,要来伤害你?什么样的山似乎将要把你压垮? Faith is not measured by the bushel, but by the seed. Let me repeat that again: Faith is not measured by the bushel, but by the seed. All God asks of us is a tiny seed of faith and He steps in to do the miracle we need. 信心不是用大的单位如蒲式耳(1蒲式耳约等于36.368升)来度量,而是用微小的种子来形容。 请让我再说一次:信心不是用大的单位如蒲式耳(1蒲式耳约等于36.368升)来度量,而是用微小的种子来形容。 神对我们的要求仅仅只是一个微小的信心的种子,然后他就会来行我们所需要的神迹。 The Lord is eager to bless those who open their hearts to His blessing. We sometimes feel that the challenges we face are too great for God to handle. That is a lot of baloney! Nothing is impossible with God! Even the disciples of Jesus felt they were not up to the task of working miracles. 神渴望去祝福那些打开心扉等待他赐福的人。有时我们会觉得我们所面对的挑战太大,以致神都无法处理。这完全是胡扯!在神凡事都能!连耶稣的门徒都觉得他们不够能力行神迹。 Before we are too critical of these disciples, what about the situations in our lives? Do we have mustard-seed size faith to turn our problems into the opportunities for God to bring about His deliverance? Are we committed to trust in His strength and wisdom rather than trying to do things ourselves? By faith we can say: "Pass the mustard, please!" 在我们批评这些门徒之前,我们自己的境况如何呢?我们有象芥菜种那么小的信心去将我们的问题转换成让主做工的机会吗?我们有委身并相信神的大能和智慧吗?还是我们宁可自己试着解决?靠着信心,我们可以说:“请将芥菜传给我!” GEM 4 DR KENNY MCCLINTON TRUSTING IN THE LORD PSALM 37:5-6 信靠主 诗篇 37:5-6 Text: “Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass. And He shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgement as the noonday.” 经文:“当将你的事交托耶和华,并倚靠他,他就必成全。他要使你 的公义,如光发出,使你的公平,明如正午。” Psalm 37:5-6. Good morning, truly committed Christian! There is no more powerful means of reaching precious souls for Christ’s Kingdom than to witness a truly committed Christian man or woman, endeavouring to live life in full communion and close fellowship with the Living Lord God. May the Lord God grant us more and more truly committed Christian witnesses, whose public testimony honours Christ and draws souls to His Cross to receive Eternal Salvation. Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! 早上好,没有比见证一个真心侍奉的基督徒与神亲密交通更能到达基 督国度的有力方式了。愿神赐予我们更多的真心侍奉的基督见证,他 们公开的见证可以荣耀神,并且带领更多的灵魂来到十架前来接受永 远的拯救。哈利路亚!赞美主! “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in Heaven.” (Matthew 5:16) “你们的光也当这样照在人前,叫他们看见你们的好行为, 便将荣耀归给你们在天上的父。”(马太福音 5:16) What is the initial, totally necessary, act of sinful man in seeking to ‘commit his/her way unto the Lord’? What action does this act of true commitment to God require? 罪人首先必须要做的是把自己奉献给主。这该如何去做呢? 神所需要人做的真正侍奉是什么? 1. Full recognition of one’s sin. Any semblance of full commitment to God necessarily first requires a full recognition of one’s sin; how much one has ‘fallen short of the glory of God’, as taught by God the Spirit via the writings of the apostle Paul. “...For there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God...” (Romans 3:22-23) 1. 充分认罪。任何对神的绝对侍奉首先都必须要完全认罪; 正如圣灵通过门徒保罗所写的:“人都亏欠了神的荣耀”。“就是神 的义,因信耶稣基督,加给一切相信的人,并没有分别。 因为世人都犯了罪,亏缺了神的荣耀。”(罗马书 3:22-23) The ‘glory of God’ in this case is the true and perfect righteousness, purity, and impeccable Holiness of Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. All other mere human, or natural righteousness, is self-righteousness, which always falls infinitely short of the perfect righteousness of Christ Jesus – God the Son. 这里所指的“神的荣耀”,就是神唯一的儿子:耶稣基督没有瑕疵的 神圣性。所有其他人或自然律,都只是自以为义,必然亏欠在神的独子耶稣基督里的完全公义。 Therefore, in order to obtain and possess ‘...the righteousness of God...’, one must be Spiritually regenerated by God from all previous natural sin, cleansed by the precious and sinless Blood of Christ’s Atonement Sacrifice on the Cross, and made into a ‘...new creature in Christ...’ NOTHING less will do! 所以,要获得‘神的公义’,人必须在灵魂上从过去自然的罪中被神 重造,通过十架上无罪的基督的血来赎罪,变作“基督的新生命”, 没有其他的东西可以偿还我们的罪。 “Jesus answered (Nicodemus), Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again (Spiritually regenerated), he cannot see the Kingdom of God...Except a man be of water (natural birth) and of the Spirit (Spiritual birth), he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God.” (John 3:3-9) “耶稣回答说(尼哥底母),我实实在在地告诉你,人若不重生,就不能见神的国。人若不是从水和圣灵生的,就不能进神的国。”(约翰3:3-9) “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed (or are continually passing) away; behold (look and see!), all things are become (or are continually becoming) new. And all things are of God, Who hath reconciled us to Himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry to reconciliation; to wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world (sinners) to Himself, not imputing (putting to our account) their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.” (2 Corinthians 5:17-19) 若有人在基督里,他就是新造的人。旧事已过(或正在过去),都变成新的(正在不停地变新)了。一切都是出于神,他借着基督使我们与他和好,又将劝人与他和好的职分赐给我们。这就是神在基督里叫世人与自己和好,不将他们的过犯归到他们身上。并且将这和好的道理托付了我们。(哥林多后书5:17-19) Only ‘born again’, Spiritually regenerate, souls; washed in the precious and sinless Blood of Christ the Lamb; and sanctified by God the Spirit – can ever enter the Kingdom of God. This then is what is required for true and full commitment to Christ Jesus – are you and I in this manner fully and truly committed to Christ? Think this one through. 只有“重生”,灵魂上的重生;以无罪的基督的羔羊血洗过;被圣灵 祝福的——可以进入神的国。 所以对耶稣基督完全真实的奉献是——你我以这种方式完全地奉献神 ?好好思考一下。 2. Progressively Sanctified. After one is born again of the Lord God, and sanctified from all committed sin, one must thereafter seek to be progressively sanctified from sins committed naturally, and daily, due to the weakness of our old nature – the flesh. The Lord God makes provision for this progressive sanctification by: 2.逐渐成圣。人在神里重生之后,已经将一切罪里都洗净,所以以后必须要逐渐从属肉体的老我的弱点和日常的罪中分别出来 。主通过以下的方式为我们的逐渐成圣做预备: (a) confession of sin to God alone seeking His cleansing and forgiveness and strength to forsake future sins. “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the TRUTH (Jesus Christ Himself, John 14:6) is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse (sanctify) us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His Word (Jesus Christ Himself, John 1:1;14) is not in us.” (a) 对神忏悔坦白曾经有过的罪并求神清洗原谅,并给予力量远离将来的罪。“如果我们说我们没有罪,我们就是欺骗我们自己,真理(就是耶稣基督,约翰福音14:6)就不在我们里面。如果我们坦白自己的罪,他会真实的、公义的宽恕我们,并且从我们的不义中清洗我们。如果我们说我们没有犯罪,我们就是在说祂撒谎,那么祂的话语(耶稣基督,约翰福音1:1-14)就不在我们里面。” (b) “awashing of the water of the Word”: by continually “...studying to show ourselves approved unto God, workmen/women that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15); and being progressively sanctified from daily sins, “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it; that He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of the water of the Word, that He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be Holy and without blemish.”; the Lord instructs us that, “Now ye are clean through the Word which I have spoken unto you.” (John 15:3) Hallelujah! Cleansed and refreshed from all committed sin! What a Lord! What a great God! What a Saviour! (b) “神的话语的冲刷”:通过逐渐“竭力,在神面前得蒙喜悦,作无愧的工人,按着正意分解真理的道。”(提摩太后书2:15);并且逐渐从日常过犯中区别出来,“你们作丈夫的,要爱你们的妻子,正如基督爱教会,为教会舍己。 要用水借着道,把教会洗净,成为圣洁,可以献给自己,作个荣耀的教会,毫无玷污皱纹等类的病,乃是圣洁没有瑕疵的。”(以弗所书5:25-27);主告诉我们“现在你们因我讲给你们的道,已经干净了”(约翰福音15:3)哈利路亚!从所有的过犯中变得圣洁和重生了!主啊!伟大的神!伟大的救主! Verse 5. “Commit thy way unto the Lord, is rendered by the Vulgate, ‘Revela viam Domino’ – reveal thy way; and by St. Ambrose, understood of revealing our sins to God. Indeed, since it is impossible to cover, why should we not discover our sins? Conceal not that which God knoweth already and would have thee to make known. It is very ill office to be the Devil’s secretary. Oh, break thy league with Satan by revealing his secrets, thy sins, to God.” (Nathaniel Hardy 1618-1670) 经文5.“全心全意侍奉神,罗马天主教圣经拉丁通俗译本描述为'Revela viam Domino', 显露你的道路;通过圣徒安布罗斯,理解我们对神坦白自己罪的意义。的确,既然我们不可能忽视自己的罪,那为什么我们不能发现自己的罪呢?不要隐藏神已经知道的,让神来使你认知。这么做是服从撒旦邪恶的工。请揭露撒旦的秘密,和撒旦诀别,把你的最袒露给神。“(纳撒尼尔 哈代 1618-1670) Verse 5. “...Trust also in Him and He shall bring it to pass. He does well to leave the whole matter with God; and so to all of us it is truest wisdom, having obediently trusted in God, to leave the results in His hands and expect a blessed issue. (C.H.S.) 第5节. “只要信,祂必成。主在把一切交给神这件事上做的非常好;所以对于我们所有人来说这也是最真实的智慧,要完全顺从神意,把一切结果交在他的手上,并等待一个被祝福的结果。(C.H.S) CHARLES HADDON SPURGEON Thought: True and full commitment to Christ necessitates a continual confession of sins; a forsaking of sin; and totally trusting in the Lord Jesus for the Ultimate Victory. 思想:对于基督的真实的完全的奉献需要有个持续的坦白罪和忏悔的过程;离开罪;要完全相信主耶稣一定会得胜。

  14. Saudi Arabia has one of the world's worst religious freedom and human rights records. Yet a massive shift is happening. The crown prince has vowed to leave behind "extremist ideologies" for a "more moderate Islam." Decisions to give women more freedom (such as the ability to legally drive) and the recent purge of political and business leadership, all reveal the magnitude of these shifts. These are critical moments for a country with great global influence. What would happen if a nation so rooted and established against Jesus was transformed by His love? What if the royal family became followers of Jesus Christ? Do we believe God is big enough to accomplish this? Spiritual breakthrough in Saudi Arabia - the birthplace and epicenter of Islam - would send shockwaves throughout the Muslim world. And maybe it's already beginning! While numbers are unreliable and vary greatly, God is certainly moving in power across Saudi Arabia and the secret Church is growing significantly! Let your prayers for this nation reflect the size of your God! Together let's watch and pray, The Prayercast Team

I am just an ordinary person, who knows God loves him and has saved him through HIS precious grace 我想和你们分享我的见证,关于我是如何知道上帝的。我是一个非常普通的人,但是我知道上帝是爱我的,他通过珍贵的恩典救赎了我。 The greatest gifts that God has given me, are HIS salvation.. story outlined below and also my beloved wife Helen and precious daughter Ming. 上帝赐予我的最好的礼物就是他的救恩,下面是一些经历,还有心爱的妻子海伦和珍爱的女儿明。 I am British and they are Chinese, and although we come from different cultures, our love is strong. They are my heart and are so wonderful and amazing. They are my precious jewels.. my beloved and our little one, who bring so much joy, love and pleasure into my life. 我是英国人,而她们是中国人;虽然我们来自于不同的文化,但是我们的爱是非常坚韧的。她们是我的心肝宝贝,她们是如此的美好和精彩。她们是我的珍宝。我的妻子和女儿给我的生活带来如此之多的喜乐、爱和开心。 If any of you wish to stop reading now, that is your decision, but if you read on, you will hear sincerely from my heart. 如果现在有谁不想再读下去了,那是你的决定;但是如果你继续读下去,你会听到我真诚的心声。 Maybe at the end you will say.. well that's great for you Keith, but it's not for me.. again your decision. 当你读完我的见证你也许会说...

I say like the Apostle Paul.. that I am not ashamed of the Gospel Of Christ 对于我来说上帝是如此的真实和宝贵,就像使徒保罗,我不会以传基 督福音为耻。 My Testimony 我的见证 Well I was born in Bradford in the UK.. many years ago!! 很多很多~~年前我出生在英国的布莱德福德 When I was 5 I moved to Morecambe with my parents as they started a new job running a council owned retirement home. 当我5岁的时候,我随父母搬家去了莫科姆,因为我父母开始了一个新的工作, 运营一间由理事会所有的养老院 I was sent to church and Sunday school every week, under heavy protest.. I only went because we got Sunday school prizes and sweets. 虽然我提出强烈的抗议,但是每个星期我都会被送到教会上主日学;我之所以去是唯一理由是,在主日学我会拿到一些奖品和糖果, My Favourite hymn back then was There is a Green Hill Far away, but I knew nothing of the reality of Knowing Christ. 那个时候我最喜欢的赞美诗就是《有一个遥远的绿山》(1906年英国发行的一首非常好听的唱诗班圣歌),但是那时候我对基督一无所知。 http://www.hymnary.org/text/there_is_a_green_hill_far_away Although I sang it with passion.. I had no awareness of the living personal truth of it. I then went to another church, that was more of a social club to be honest. 虽然我满怀热情地唱这首歌,但是我并没有意识到这个真实存在的人的事实。 后来我去了另外一个教会,说实话更像是一个社交俱乐部。 Meanwhile at school things got worse, I was placed in the worst class, this was the class for people considered to be educationally slow and not likely to take exams. 与此同时我学校的成绩越来越差,我被分配到一个最差的班级,这个班级是专门给那些被认为学习迟缓和不喜欢考试的孩子的。 My Parents fought very hard for me to be moved to a better class and after two terms or semesters, I was placed in Class 4S. Now in that class was a fellow pupil called Andrew, who was a Christian. I had seen him about, but had taken no notice of him. I owe Andrew a great debt of gratitude.. thanks to my oldest friend. 我父母为了把我转到一个好一点的班级花费了好大的力气,两个学期后我被分配到了4S班。在这个班级里有一个学生叫安德烈,他是一个基督徒。我见过他但是已经没有联系他了,我欠他一个大大的恩情,感谢我这个老朋友。 I was known for being the school clown, always pestering people, well I started to do this to Andrew, but he didn't respond, this upset me even more and I became determined to upset him. 我在学校是出名小丑式的人物,经常去找别人麻烦,我最开始就是找安德烈的麻烦, 但是他却不理睬我。这使得我非常的不开心,而且下决心要让他不开心。 This went on for quite a few months, He was really getting to me, he had something different, I had never seen this before and it fascinated me. There were also a couple of Christian teachers in the school, who were different.. I didn't understand why ( thanks John and Ruth).. these two had fallen in love whilst at school and got married.. and are still happily married today.. school romance is usually about pupils.. our school was different!!!!! 这种情况持续了几个月,他引起了我的注意,他是有些与众不同的,是我从前没有遇到过的并且深深的吸引了我。在学校里还有几个基督徒的老师,他们也是与众不同的;我并不明白为什么(感谢约翰和露丝)这一对在学校时就在一起谈恋爱之后并结婚,并且直到今天依然处在幸福的婚姻中。学校里的浪漫爱情一般是学生们的,但是我们学校不同! Well Andrew kept on at me, inviting me to some meetings on Saturday night.. OK I said.. But I want to be home for the Football at 10pm. 安德烈还是继续跟着我,他邀请我去一些星期六晚上的聚会...我答应了,但是我很希望在家看晚上10点的橄榄球赛。 So one Saturday, I set off for Lancaster to Moorlands Gospel Hall.. a trip on the bus of 20 minutes and Andrew met me at the bus station and we walked up to the meeting place. 一个星期六,我去了兰开斯特沼泽福音堂,坐公交要20分钟左右,安德烈在车站等我,然后我们一起走路去聚会的地方。 The place was crowded.. songs were sung .. and then this man came to speak.. His Name was Victor Jack.. He spoke on Hell and what would happen if you died tonight.. if you did.. where would you go.? For the first time, I became truly aware that I was a sinner before a Holy God, but also that God had provided a solution to my sin problem and that was Jesus. 这个地方很多人,一直在唱歌,然后来了一个男人讲道,他的名字叫维克特 杰克。他讲的是关于地狱和如果今晚一个人死了会发生什么,会去哪里?这是第一次我真正的意识到在圣洁的上帝面前我是一个罪人,但是同时上帝也为了我的罪恶问题提供了一个解决方案,那就是基督。 I thought I was a good person, after all I lived in a christian country, lived in a good home, went to church and had never killed anyone, but the standards I had, were not God's perfect standard 我一直认为我是一个好人,我生活在一个基督教的国家,我成长在一个好的家庭,去做礼拜,也从未杀过人;但是我所拥有的这些标准并不是上帝给我们的完美标准。 You see my friend.. Man has a problem. I had a problem that night.. you have a problem right now.. and that is you are alienated from God because of your sin.. there is a vast chasm separating you from God. But the chasm is no longer there as the Cross of Calvary has provided the answer.. but the question is.. will you accept and trust that perfect sacrifice that Jesus made? 你看吧,我的朋友们... 人类有一个问题... 我那天晚上有一个问题;现在你也有一个问题。 因为你的罪让你与上帝疏远了,在你与上帝之间有一个巨大的鸿沟。但是现在这个鸿沟不存在了, 因为伽利略山的十架给了我们一个回答。那现在的问题就是:你愿意接受并且相信基督所做的完美牺牲吗? At the end of the meeting the speaker said I am going into a side room, if anyone wants to come and see me there, they can become a christian, well all I can remember is closing my eyes and it was like a curtain going up on a stage, the light was suddenly turned on. I turned to Andrew and said 'I'm going in that room', his face lit up, I don't think he could believe it. We arrived at the room, just before someone else, if they had got in first, I don't think I would of carried it through. 在聚会的结尾,讲道的那个人说我现在去到旁边一个房间里,如果有谁愿意过来见我他们可以成为基督徒。我所能记得的一切就是我闭着眼,就像舞台上的幕帘拉起来一样,灯光一下子就打开了。我转向安德烈对他说:“我要去那个房间。”他的脸一下子变了,我知道他不敢相信这一切。 我们来到那个房间,就比其他人早了一步,如果他们先到了,我想我不能承受那一切。 Victor took me through the book Journey Into Life and at the end of the book, there is a prayer, prayed it and meant it. I knew that My sin had been dealt with because of what Jesus had done on the cross for me. 维克特带领我翻到书《在生命的旅程》的最后,那有一个祷告,我诚心的向它祷告。我知道我的罪恶已经被耶稣十字架上的救恩洗刷了。 Mr Scott our form teacher had said to Andrew, Keith will never be saved, he is beyond redemption, I suppose it proves that no-one is beyond God's redeeming grace. 我们学校的一个老师斯科特先生曾经对安德烈说过,基斯永远也不会得救因为他离救赎太远了。我想这正证明了在上帝的救赎恩典面前没有人是太远的。 The changes were not instant and indeed took time, my word. The Lord has had some patience with me, of all his children, I think that I must be the most disobedient one, but ever since that night ,God has held me through my wanderings, through all mistakes and those have been many. God's love is the most amazing thing you can ever experience. 我的这些改变不是瞬间的,它花费了很长的时间。上帝对我赋予了足够的耐心。我想我是他众多孩子中最不听话的一个,但是自从那天晚上,上帝一路扶持我走过了很多充满疑惑、困惑、错误之路。 上帝的爱是你能所感受到的最惊奇的经历。 Becoming a christian is not about saying a prayer or even going to church, if you go to Mcdonald's a lot, would that make you a hamburger? If you pray all day, does thsat make you a christian.. NO 成为一名基督徒不是单单祷告或是去做礼拜,就比如说如果你经常去麦当劳,会让你变成一个汉堡吗?如果你一整天都在祷告,那会让你成为基督徒吗? 不会的。 Becoming a christian, is a life changing experience, because it changes the heart. It takes repentance and faith in finished work of Christ on the cross, where God's mercy, grace, wrath and love all came together. 成为基督徒是一个人的生命改变历程,因为他是改变的是我们的心。对基督在十字架上完成的工作,那里有上帝融合在一起的怜悯,恩典,愤怒,和爱,这需要我们悔改并有信心。 Now at age 58, Yes I am that old.. lol. I can now say that God is truly faithful, HE has brought me through so much. He alone is my love, my delight , my joy and my life. 现在我58岁了,是的我这么老了。我可以说上帝是真实可信靠的,他已经带领我经历了如此之多,他是我的爱,我的明灯,我的喜乐,我的生命。 A final word.. you may disregard this as the rantings of a deluded person.. but the same transforming experience, the same thing that happened to me, has happened to millions through the ages and is still happening today.. My Favourite hymn and the one that sums up my life is.. AMAZING GRACE 最后想说,你可能会忽视这些,当做一个骗子的夸夸其谈,但是在我身上发生的转变,我所经历的一切,今天同样继续发生在成千上万的人身上 我最喜欢的并激励我人生的一首赞美诗就是:奇异恩典 These words are the story of my life, I hope and pray that you can say them also 这些就是我的故事,我希望并且祷告,你们也可以说出你们的故事 http://www.constitution.org/col/amazing_grace.htm Christianity is the only faith that promises life transformation.. why don't you try it for yourself? 基督教是唯一一个保证改变你人生的信仰,为什么你不自己尝试一下呢?
