Hello to all of the brothers and sisters around the world who love the gospel.
The New Year 2014 began.
The bible says that the lord wishes that nobody gets destroyed, and everyone receives salvation.
If God wants everyone to receive salvation, why did he have to destroy the earth with a flood? There is a reason for this. Noah preached the gospel to many people, but unfortunately they only laughed at him and didn’t receive the word of God. How sad this is!
People are starting to think that preaching the gospel is burdensome. This is because when we try to preach the gospel, Satan always tries to tempt us. Some people live spreading the word of God to others even though they aren’t ministers. However, many born-again Christian live their lives without preaching the gospel. This is very shocking. God said that he made us new so that we could spread the Word.
God has given righteous people a fruitful life, and prepared everything for us to live that life. But we live, interested in other things. ‘You can’t be fruitful. Being king is better. Being prime minister is better’. Listening to these thoughts that Satan gave to you, you have lost a fruitful life.
God has planned everything to save us. But the reason he isn’t judging the world is because the work of salvation keeps happening. If there isn’t any work of salvation, God might end the world. We might have 1, 3, 10, or 100 years to live. Nobody knows. What are you going to do with the rest of your life? We must live for the gospel. Don’t use this precious time for your flesh. Live for the Word of God.
Let’s read the New Year’s Scripture.
John 11:40 “Jesus saith to her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?”
Jesus went to Bethany to save Nazareth. Jesus told Martha that her brother would live again, but she didn’t believe him. Jesus told her to move the boulder blocking the door to Nazareth’s grave. But Martha believed in the situation of Nazareth’s death, instead of God’s Word. If Jesus says that Nazareth will be alive, he will. However, Martha didn’t believe it because distrust was holding her heart.
Jesus said to Martha, ‘If thou believeth, thou shouldest see the glory of God’
This word is so precious. Even if you were not fruitful, didn’t get your prayer answered, and your life was hard up to now, you will see God’s glory only if you believe Him.
“Jesus saith to her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?”
Let’s believe this Word.
If we believe this Word, the fruits of salvation will grow inside of us and God will work in our lives. God has prepared everything so that He can work in us. Do you have any difficult situation? Are you ill? Is praying hard for you? Is the bible hard to read? Do you feel reluctant to give offerings? Is there any problem with your children? Leave all of your problems to Jesus and believe. If you do, 2014 will be full of God’s glory.
Brothers and sisters!
I’m so happy that I can start 2014 with you. If you believe in the Lord in your heart and the Lord’s heart will become one with yours. Frist, I hope you will stay healthy in 2014 and have many testimonies about God’s work. I also hope that God works more closely with you and provides you more so you can do more work for God. Meeting a good husband or wife and getting married are other things I pray for you. If you have any illness, I pray for you to get healed, too.
I hope this year will be when many fruits of the gospel sprout because of your own witness of the Gospel.
