Good day all,
Due to the Corona Virus our church is still closed, but we hope and pray that we should be able to open up in the beginning of September 2020.
We miss you all and are praying for you, shalom.
Joh 11:25 Jesus said to her, I am [Myself] the Resurrection and the Life. Whoever believes in (adheres to, trusts in, and relies on) Me, although he may die, yet he shall live; Joh 11:26 And whoever continues to live and believes in (has faith in, cleaves to, and relies on) Me shall never [actually] die at all. Do you believe this?
Jesus is the life itself – this is what He is teaching us in this scripture. He is the One who bring Life and He says that if you rely on Him; or trust in Him; or adhere to His teachings, then you should not have a problem at all to understand that you are actually living in the Kingdom of God.
The part of this scripture that really touches my heart; is that His word says: “although he may die, yet shall he live”. This is where we start realizing that there is this physical life where we live, but there is also a spiritual world out there, and if you rely on Jesus and believe in Him, it means that you have access to live in this spiritual world, which is His Kingdom. And yes, you can already live in the Kingdom today! It is not something that is still coming, it is already here. Jesus Christ is your life! He is the One who gives you life in abundance so that you can succeed in your everyday life. Look at V26… those who believe and cleave to Him; and rely on Him shall never actually die at all…! DO YOU BELIEVE THIS? Is Jesus your life?
So many times we want to do things but we battle to do them because we think that we are unable to do it. But in Acts 1:8 we are taught that His power is the ability, strength, might, skills, and all that we need – and this will enable us to be what God wants us to be as His servants here on earth.
We are here to help God expand His Kingdom and for this reason we must be One with Him, be partakers of the Divine, and also make use of the gifts God has given us.
We must remember, before Jesus started His three year’s public Ministry, He was baptized in water and anointed with the Holy Spirit of God to do great things (Mark 1:10). With these gifts He was able to do all the great things He did. And now He lives in us, which means that we are now equipped with the same power that Jesus had.
His word says we can do all Jesus did and more… John 14:12… what more do you want? You are a son of God walking on the earth with so much power… it actually blows my mind that Christians do not understand that they can draw on the power of Christ within them to overcome anything in this life… ANYTHING !!!
Maybe today you are one of those people that feel like life is just not worth going on anymore. Maybe you feel so down-and-out that you wonder why you should keep going? Are you so tired and mentally drained that you feel you could want to sleep forever?
Do you think that your life is looking like the dry bones in Ezekiel chapter One. Are your situation so bad and the circumstances so overwhelming that you think there is no way out…. you should read 1 Cor 10:13.
Have no doubt or fear… for God is with you. Even though you might not feel Him right now, He loves you and He is holding you. He wants you to be blessed, saved, healed, delivered and set free. You hope may seem that you have lost it along the way, but God is there to help you, and will refresh your hope and trust in Him. He has a way out for you.
God will refresh and bring to life that situation in your life that seems to be so dry and dead. He is able to do abundantly more than what we can ever think or feel.
We are praying for you! – TRT Church
Psa 23:1 THE LORD is my Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], I shall not lack.
One of the most beautiful Psalm scriptures in the Bible of God’s Word to hold on to is Psalm 23… and most probably every one who is considered to be a Christian, should know this Psalm.
The very first line tells us exactly Who this God is that we serve. He promises that we shall have no lack of anything in our lives, whether it be a healthy physical body, a stable job, a good marriage, well-behaved positive children, a steady Bank account…. no matter what it is in life that you may need, His promise is that He will provide for you in such a way that you will lack nothing!
This is an amazing promise from God and can also be used as a prayer everyday, confessing over yourself that God will provide for you, and you will indeed not lack anything in any dimension of your life! Trust in God, He is faithful to provide for you!
