Matthew 24:36-44

36 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 40 Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.

42 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

Last night’s vesper service was a question that should be ask not only to the wicked but to all Christian as well.

Are you READY?

The verse above stated that no one knows when the second coming will happen. Even the “Angels in heaven not the Son, but only the Father.” This means that no prophet, no televised religion, no righteous person, no social media update nor twitter feed can predict or state that they know when it will occur. …Continue Reading »

38 And in his teaching he said, “Beware of the scribes, who like to go about in long robes, and to have salutations in the market places 39 and the best seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at feasts, 40 who devour widows’ houses and for a pretense make long prayers. They will receive the greater condemnation.” 41 And he sat down opposite the treasury, and watched the multitude putting money into the treasury. Many rich people put in large sums. 42 And a poor widow came, and put in two copper coins, which make a penny. 43 And he called his disciples to him, and said to them, “Truly, I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the treasury. 44 For they all contributed out of their abundance; but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, her whole living.”

Mark 12:38 – 44

Our Pastor in one of his sermon ask the whole congregation “What is Giving?”

For a kid it is about sharing. An extra piece of biscuit or a toy to a sibling or a friend. To everyone else its a hard question for everyone is also questioning their answer.

Is giving only limited to a one time event or is it a continuous thing that need to be done and when it stop is it not giving?

Is it only limited to earthy things like food, clothes, and other material thing? …Continue Reading »

Blind Bartimaeus Receives His Sight

46 Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging. 47 When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”
48 Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”
49 Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.”
So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” 50 Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus.
51 “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him.
The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.”
52 “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.

Mark 10:46-52

It was our Pastor message a few weeks ago. But up to now the message still resides in me.  “What do you want me to do for you?” is the question our Lord Jesus is asking to us everyday of our lives.

He is always ready to give it to us. All we have to do is ask it. It is as simple as that, just ask it to our Lord and He will give it to you.
