I call on us to rejoice. And forever be lifted from the tyranny that we once called freedom. We live in a world that has only declared freedom to see it be entertained. We are as much slaves as the ones shackled in the past. No, we are not slaves to a master that holds final rule. We have allowed ourselves to become slaves to something far more dangerous. We are slaves of hope. Not because there is none but more because there is only false hope believed to hold true. Our hope is not real. It is given to us by politicians and the men whom fatten their pockets at any chance to grasp what freedom and hope we have left only to dismantle it with false promise of better tomorrow. We blame them for our problems, although we are yet the ones who decide their reign. At what cost do we see the vision of a prosperous tomorrow fall prey to the ones we call our leaders. We are all but men fighting for our place in this world not realizing that most have already had it decided upon them. We feel elevated yet our place is at the feet of corruption where a dog lie idle in wait of his masters will. What is freedom to the damned? Is it a thing that can be grasped or just another illusion we must bite down upon because we know not to lay rest to hope? Or is it a choice that is our own, and we just have net yet realized that it is ours to take?

...Sufferings of the Christians Text: 1 Peter 1:6-9 Theme: The Will of God in our trials and sufferings Introduction: * “In these you greatly rejoice”, (v.3-5) Peter is referring to what Christ has given to believers. * We are to rejoice because of God’s abundant mercy (v.3). There may be trials, but God didn’t leave us. The following are examples of God’s mercy: 1. 1 Corinthian 15- “the resurrection of Christ will give us hope”. 2. Inheritance in heaven. 3. For keeping us daily. * Rejoice- a kind of emotion that will lift you to the air. In times of trials a Christian can enjoy. Happiness is different from joy, happiness is more on the positive things that is happening in your life… things and events that is in favour of you, but rejoicing is different because it comes from God, even in times of suffering you will rejoice. * Matthew 5:12- when you are persecuted because of your love to Christ then REJOICE! What are the truths that the bible teaches us about trials? 1. Trials are temporary- v.6, 2 Corinthians 4:17 2. Trials are timely- Matthew 16:21, as a follower of Christ, suffering is a must. 2 Timothy 3:12; 1 Peter 4:12 3. Trials are terrible or difficult- yes indeed it’s difficult, but it does not mean that we should enjoy and act like we are not affected by it. * If you refuse trials it simply means that you do not want blessings from God anymore. 4. Trials will transform us- many Christians had testified that......

The purpose of the defining Word Project is to learn of the immense benefit that can be gained from really searching out the meaning of a word. Looking up the synonyms and antonyms, understanding what the root word means, finding the primary root in Hebrew and Greek can bring such a depth of understanding to what the Holy Spirit means in a Bible verse. And by diligent study of words, you usually "get it." That's a challenge but we are commanded to do exactly this! 2 Timothy 2:15 “ Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth” This assignment is based on six words that I have researched and defined according to their Biblical use in both the Old Testament and New Testament.

...starts with encouraging compassion and carefulness ways to guard against the unclear future. He did that by casting our bread upon the waters, willing to offer servings to many, and not withholding our hands in the evening, our compassion may serve us well in the future should evil befall us. Likewise, things may happen beyond our ability to control or comprehend, but carefulness in sowing seed and being mindful of the dark days to come can help to prepare us for their coming (Ecclesiastes 1-8). In this book, it also introduces direction from the Preacher designed especially for the young. The young man is encouraged to rejoice, letting his heart cheer him. He is told to walk in the ways of his heart and in the sight of his eyes, yet with the knowledge that God will hold Page 2 him accountable for all that he does. So remove sorrow and rejoice. But also put away evil during the fleeting years of childhood and youth (Ecclesiastes 9-10). Now before I get in depth with scripture, I want to go back to the book; Grasping God’s Word.

...Introduction The book of Habakkuk was written in the period of the campaigns of the Chaldeans[1] against Judah[2], around 600 BC. The book is composed of a dialogue between the prophet Habakkuk and God, of complaints, of a vision of God’s sovereignty and of a final trustful prayer. “... a number of commentators have argued that the book may have been kept deliberately vague about historical detail so that it could be found relevant in a number of situations.” [3] In this essay it is assumed that in the original context; Habakkuk’s complaints in 1:2-4 are about Judah’s sin, the wicked oppressors of 1:5-17 are the Chaldeans and the righteous are the faithful remnant of Judah (1:4, 2:4).[4] Emerging from a period of deep distress, this book’s main theological themes are of great value to the Christian faith. In this essay I will look at six of these themes: the prayer of lament, the character of God, faith, righteousness & life, the patience of the believer, the fear of God and the joy in the midst of darkness. Prayer of lament “O Lord, how long…?”[5] This cry of the prophet comes from his wrestle with the seeming inactivity of God when his people need him most. Habakkuk saw around him horrors in Judah, the righteous outraged by the wicked and justice perverted.[6] In verse 3 Habakkuk expresses his great trouble.[7] Is God really on the throne? Has he lost control over history? Is he still holy and loving? God seems deaf to his prayer. It is good to be reminded......

Luther, Lewis, and the Mortification of Sin

...Luther, Lewis, and the Mortification of Sin “Be a sinner and sin boldly, but believe and rejoice in Christ even more boldly.” These words were uttered by the great reformer and theologian Martin Luther. Martin Luther certainly was a strange, contradictory man. On one hand, he was at the forefront of an intellectual movement that would change the world forever, ushering in the modern era, but on the other hand, he was a depressed and bipolar maniac who could be found screaming his throat out and rolling on the floor, bawling his eyes out. Perhaps it was his “crazy” nature which enabled him to have such a clear, crystal sharp view on what John Owen called the “mortification of sin.” The quote referenced above sums up in fifteen words the answer to what millions across the centuries have pondered—how does a Christian fight against sin? At first glance, this quote seems heretical. As the Catholic priest Father Patrick O’Hare said about it, “If the author of such an infamous suggestion as is involved in the words ‘sin boldly’ was not a child of Satan, none ever labored so strenuously in advancing his soul-destroying principles.” But was Luther really a heretic? Was the Father of the Reformation indeed, as O’Hare mildly puts, “a child of Satan?” I would argue that Monsignor O’Hare is in the wrong. A study of Luther’s works will show that he was fond of strong hyperbole (as a quick glance through The Bondage of the Will would show). What is Luther really saying......

Nonverbal Communiication

...Do you remember receiving a test back that you did great on, and perhaps looked up smiling? If so, then you are nonverbally communicating that you’re happy or satisfied. Nonverbal communication is a very interesting and complex part of everyday communication. “Nonverbal communication includes all aspects of communication other than words.”(Wood, 2014, p. 90) Our facial expressions, posture, eyes, mouth and body are all used when sending out cues. These cues can be positive and unfortunately negative. We are sometimes unaware of the cues that we give off, but sometimes they are intentional as well. It’s one of the most important aspects in how we interpret messages. When you take out the element of nonverbal communication it can lead to issues of misinterpretation. “Social networking via Facebook and other on-line sites and applications has emerged as an integral, pervasive, and potent means of developing, fostering, and maintaining casual, intimate, professional, and other relationships in the digital age.”(Montepare, 2014, p.410) We are dependent in many cases on the use of email, text messaging, instant messaging and other media that eliminate nonverbal elements, but not the need for it. Communicating online is not like meeting and greeting with someone in person. Emails, texts, and instant messages are usually short and direct. For example, I have personally talked to friends online several times where I will share something. Sometimes I get responses like......

If I Were a Voice

...truthful words I'd speak  To save them from Despair. I'd fly, I'd fly, o'er the crowded town,  And drop, like the happy sun-light, down Into the hearts of suffering men,  And teach them to rejoice again. III. If I were a voice, a convincing voice, I'd travel with the wind,  And whenever I saw the nations torn By warfare, jealousy, or scorn,  If I were a voice, a convincing voice, I 'd travel with the wind,  And whenever I saw the nations torn By warfare, jealousy, or scorn,  Or hatred of their kind, I'd fly, I'd fly, on the thunder-crash,  And into their blinded bosoms flash; And, all their evil thoughts subdued,  I'd teach them Christian Brotherhood. IV. If I were a voice, a pervading voice, I'd seek the kings of Earth;  I'd find them alone on their beds at night-- And whisper words that should guide them right--  Lessons of priceless worth; I'd fly more swift than the swiftest bird,  And tell them things they never heard-- Truths which the ages for aye repeat--  Unknown to the statesmen at their feet. V. If I were a voice, an immortal voice, I'd speak in the people's ear;  And whenever they shouted "Liberty," Without deserving to be free,  I'd make their error clear. I'd fly, I'd fly, on the wings of day,  Rebuking wrong on my world-wide way, And making all the Earth rejoice--  If I were a voice--an immortal...

...the feast that make man made assumptions border onto heresy. Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” Sukkot is an eight-day festival (Leviticus 23:34-36) as the Jewish people will dwell in temporary shelters symbolizing what their ancestors did in the wilderness. The light of the world was not born in a manger as the “Christmas carols” tell us. The more prospective answer indicates that there were no rooms at the inns around Jerusalem as Sukkot was a required pilgrimage to Jerusalem for Jews therefore; He was born in a Sukkot booth. The focus of Sukkot is to “rejoice before Adonai” and give thanks for the atonement of sins as the Feast is held after the somber fast of Yom Kippur. What better way to rejoice than on the first night of the Feast lighting the eternal candle of Yahshua being born into a temporary shelter? In John 7 and 8 where Jesus uses two customary representations from the Feast of Tabernacles celebration, water and light, to help...

...March 2016 International Women’s Day: Celebrating the Good News International Women’s Day, March 8,is a time to celebrate what has been accomplished by and for women.There is much to celebrate! This month also marks the arrival of Easter, March 27,when we celebrate the good news that God so loved women that he sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to pay for their sins on the cross and give them life everlasting. While on Earth, Jesus went against the customs of the times that treated women as inferior. Jesus made it a priority to speak to women, touch them, and be touched by them. Women were not excluded from his list of friends, helpers, and students. He treated women with dignity and respect when others wanted him to condemn and ignore them. Jesus understood their every need, emotion, and longing. Hecame to offer women the gift of salvation and to give them “life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10). Jesus then calls women as well as mento “go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19). And in 2016 there is more good newsfor women. God israising up a generation that cares passionately about justice. Today, many are striving to end domestic violence, rape, slavery, and human trafficking. Many are working toward providing clean water to deprived communities. More medical teams are treating women who are suffering from female genital cutting,fistula,and lack of care during pregnancy and delivery. Infant and mother mortality rates are dropping.
