God Bless Japan
Words are powerful.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue (Proverbs 18:21).
Negative words can do a lot of harm to people.
A negative word can demean your self-esteem.
A negative word can damage your reputation.
A negative word can provoke you to anger.
A negative word can destroy your dream.
A negative word can discredit your imagination.
A negative word can belittle your abilities.
A negative word can debase your opinion.
Such is the power of the tongue!
It turns out that the ordinary people are the one that ended up paying the price for the lockdown. I came across a conversation of someone accusing God of doing nothing to stop the evil of covid-19 affecting the innocent people. it was humans who decided to part way with God. As a consequence, humans invited evil into the world. From that point onwards, the innocent people fell into harm’s way. Since humans are responsible for the evils in the world, they should take the responsibility for their mistake.
Anxiety is a normal reaction to a stressful situation. Extreme cases of anxiety can have negative impact on your life and relationship. The peace that God will give you will always prevail over anxiety. God is the source of peace that is unparallel. The key to receiving God’s peace is by entrusting our lives, plans, works, responsibilities and daily needs to God.
The current global situation doesn’t inspire hope. If politicians, money and stock market are not reliable, where can we put hope on? That strong confidence about the future can only be experienced in the biblical hope. Your future will be determined by the choices you make moving forward. In life’s journey there are 2 paths. One path will lead to peace, tranquillity and life, while the other will lead to violence, destruction and death. The answer to the increasing suicides problem is the biblical hope. The essence of biblical hope is the eternal life of bliss.
The reality is that death is inevitable to all of us. The scary thing about death is that the entry door to heaven or hell is a one-way door. Once you have passed through that door, there is no way to turn back. There will be 2 judgments at the end of time. Those who stand with God will be judged under the judgment Seat of Christ. The Great White Throne judgment is reserved for those who have rejected God. In heaven, everything is so beautiful that we will be blown away. On the contrary, the existence away from the presence of God is darkness. One thing is for sure, hell is not a place you want to call it your eternal home.
God consistently manifests his unwavering love again and again in our lives. When you need help, this is the God whom you can always count on.
That is why what is impossible with humans is possible with God (Luke 18:27). To do life without divine help is risky because you will never know what tomorrow will bring.
About 2,600 years ago, it was foretold in the Bible that a day will come when the earth will be covered by darkness. Demonic influences have destroyed many lives across the globe. Demons are everywhere, lurking and waiting for the opportunity to take control over human lives. Demons can torture you with pain and suffering. The weapons to defeat demonic powers have to be spiritual. Do we have a legal standing to challenge the demonic power? We need both the authority and power to defeat the unclean spirits. We win or lose based on compliance with the divine law
Because the moment you stop forgiving others, God will also stop forgiving you. There is a nuance between forgiveness and trust. Though you should forgive a burglar, you still wouldn’t trust him to enter your home. Unforgiveness is a curse because it enslaves you. Unforgiveness is a disease because it can make you sick. Extensive research has shown that if you continue refusing to forgive others over time, it will have a similar effect as stress on you. Stress can affect your mental health negatively. It can result in depression and much worse. Unforgiveness is also very toxic. It can poison all the people around you because part of you is no longer a whole. Your negative talk will affect your loved ones and friends. The good news is there is a simple cure for unforgiveness. It is called forgiveness.
In the video at mark 7:07, I meant to say ”forgiveness will not invalidate restitution.” Instead, I misspoke: "forgiveness will not invalidate retribution."
The last 50 years witnessed the world moved towards moral decadence and self-indulgence. One of the social phenomena that emerged during this period is the entitlement culture. This entitlement culture has been one of the causes of rebellions, riots and uprisings across the globe. But God has a solution. While people with entitlement issue demand freebies from society, the Bible teaches us to give away freebies. God initiated this movement of giving when he gave the world his only son to die as a substitution for our eternal death (John 3:16). This principle of giving is the central theme throughout the Bible. God will bless us and through us others may be bless (Genesis 12:2).
