SIGNS OF THE RETURN OF JESUS ​​- THE MORAL AREA

Drugs 1. The World Health Organization declared that the world is under the effects of an epidemic of smoking, drug and alcohol abuse. In Brazil, the number of smokers is increasing 9% per year. The alcoholism and its destructive effects have reaped hundreds of lives; the drug then forget it, even today you find in bars. What is this world?

Governments worldwide are unable to control the drug each day increases alarmingly. Drugs are claiming young lives, reach and penetrate teenagers in schools: 45% of public schools in Brazil for drug trafficking. Research conducted by the Center for Studies and Research of the River (Nepad) concluded that 27 000 students from public schools in Rio use drugs frequently. "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators nor drunkards ... shall inherit the kingdom of God "(1 Cor 6.9-10).

2. Love free. Never has man been so close to a social plague as we see today in our day. This plague corrupts the morals and discipline, attributes placed by God in our lives. With immorality put on our streets, the shamelessness has increased alarmingly.

In our days, sexual promiscuity and the evil of the men reached unbearable levels. The global system is broken, and could not be otherwise because "the world lieth in wickedness" (1 John 5:19). Satan is the god of this world, and its devastating action he wants to "kill, steal and destroy." Satan is the greatest enemy of man because man is the masterpiece of God. When men rebel against God, are automatically under the control of the evil, and in this condition, carnal desires predominate: fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, wrath, strife, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness , rioting (Galatians 5.19-21).

The Word of God tells the moral decay in our days. The apostle Paul in his letter to the Romans writes saying: "For this cause God gave them up to vile passions. Because even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned with each other, men with men committing what is shameful (unworthy procedure), and receiving in themselves the recompense which was fitting for their error. And even as they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them over to a perverted mind, to do inconvenient things. Are filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, malignity "(Rom 1.26-29).

Obviously, the deviation of the worldly man begins with his rejection of the Creator and consequently the exchange in worship. The God who deserves total reverence of man, is replaced by the created things. Hence, this human being, unable to recognize the real values ​​in their pursuit of God, come down to an animalistic level, wanton, spurious practices that even among animals are found.

In these last days mankind has abandoned God and surrendered immorality. That is why God gave them the vile passions. The terrible truth that men continue to reject God, and He abandons due to increasingly immoral and self-destructive actions, and rewards resulting from the destructive promiscuity, whether physical, emotional and spiritual.

As for immorality, seems to have no importance, it seems that people have become accustomed to live with it without realizing the damage it has caused to humanity.

This is called incontinence. This is a disease that causes people not to have dominion of themselves, ie they can not restrain their natural impulses dominated by sin. The Bible warns strongly about this sinful condition. The Word of God warns us to do everything in moderation (Gal 5:22; 2nd Timothy 1.7). However, incontinence often leads people to reject God, indulging in debauchery, prostitution and the infamous vices.

Homosexuality has grown alarmingly throughout the world, even surpassing the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. The means of communication, in large numbers, are being used to worship pornography, prostitution, free sex and all sorts of immoralities. The authorities are not giving teachers more emphasis on religious education, but teach today's youth to use condoms. Unfortunately our leaders create and pass laws that emphasize all sorts of immorality. We believe that the days we are living are worse than the days of Noah and Lot.
And today there are no prejudices in society, anything can, that is, men have become accustomed to sin. The righteous man already feels ashamed of himself.

An American journalist recently described the decadent state of the world in the following words: "A generation which sank in pornography, violence, profanity, sex and drugs of abuse. There is a tragedy involving thousands of pregnant adolescents because abortion clinics are proliferating alarmingly. "

Recently, due to a scandal, the media published articles relating to a sect that through photos of pantyhose shown by leaders and officials, urging the devotees, the most minor of age, to practice explicit sex with pretense of being relations with deities. It is necessary to say that all who commit turpitude will be outside the kingdom of God (1st Co 6.9-10 Gal 5.19-21, Rev. 21.8, Rev. 22:15).

This is the magazine of November 16/2005 No. 1883, brings a report saying that about 1,700 priests and even bishops of the Catholic church are involved in sex crimes.
According to Father Alberto he filed a lawsuit against Bishop Antonio Sarto denouncing the Vatican to the day that Bishop Anthony Sardo ordered Alberto Mendes Pereira, the Father, the same night brought him to his room, locked the door and tried to grab it in force. And all these abuses are known to the Vatican, but this is flexible ministerial clergy to such immorality (Isto É of November 16/2005 No. 1883).

This is the magazine published a news saying that "a man (name withheld) died in the USA in a place frequented exclusively by zoophiles (people having sex with animals). He made ​​sodomize by a horse! Tells the magazine that the man had some colon and lacerated organs and died of internal bleeding. "The medical examiner investigators, no one has ever seen anything like it," said the police chief Erik Sortland. In addition to horses, the site of zoos has goats, sheep and dogs. This site is located in the States of Washington, where bestiality is not prohibited by the Penal Code "[This is Magazine - 27/07/2005, No. 1867].

This type of depraved and promiscuous God forbid illicit procedure for those who were walking toward the promised land (Exodus 22:19, Exodus 18:23). Today we do not walk to get to earth place, but walked to reach a heavenly country. Therefore, to get there we need to be with our pure and clean lives before the Creator.

The moral crisis is the struggle unsuccessfully to maintain modesty. Society suffers from chronic immorality. A pregnancy outside of marriage, which was rare happening today is common and seems to have no importance; children from 0:13 selling your body and more, many of them get pregnant at this age.

Statistical today says that in every family there: a drug addict or a homosexual, or an AIDS patient. Are the consequences of immoral sin of humanity, which increasingly distancing of God.

In the teachings of Paul he warns us saying: "Flee from sexual immorality! Every other sin a man commits does not affect the body, but the person who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body "(1 Corinthians 6:18).

3 The loss of Brotherly Love.

"And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many will grow cold almost all" (Mt 24.12).
The days leading up to Jesus' second coming will be marked by significant increase of iniquity upon the world. People will be at that time more prone to certain diseases of the spirit such as selfishness, cruelty and perversion.

How much of the Brazilian people followed the case of the girl Isabela 5 years, that on March 29, 2008 was brutally treated, beaten, choked by 3 minutes and finally thrown to the ground from the sixth floor of a building in São Paulo . We believe that if we had a pet and if he had died in our house or apartment, we would not do what they did with the girl Isabella. This is a barbaric crime, evil, bestial is not done either with an irrational pet let alone a defenseless child.
The wickedness has multiplied in the world and modern society is already conformed to this fact. Scandals of all kinds have increased. We hear a lot about corruption and scandals in the political realm. The political crisis is that we see the rulers in a tangle dead, contradicting and contracting more debt, generating more taxes, unemployment, poverty, hunger and even in many places culminating in civil war.
An incredible increase of immorality, disrespect and rebellion against God and abandonment of moral principles will characterize the last days. Sexual perversion, fornication, adultery, pornography, drugs, immoral songs, and sexual amusement and imagination by thinking of the human heart is evil continually. We can see that the man got used to wickedness.
To pervert sex, just as it was in the days of Lot, when homosexuality and all kinds of sexual perversion saturated society. The Lord Jesus tells us in His Word that all this depravity will wane true LOVE.

4 The increasing wickedness and immorality.
In the teachings of Jesus, He shows us that at His second coming to this world we would be living like the days of Lot and Noah:
"For as in the days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not understand until the flood came and took them all away, so will also the coming of the Son of Man "(Mt 24.38-39).

The first verses of Genesis 6 describes the corruption of men in antediluvian, days days when their thoughts were evil continually. Seeing God that "the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually," and that "the earth was filled with violence", immorality and injustice was grieved and determined to destroy the human race, least Noah's family, with which perpetuate the world. In the midst of so violent judgment, God remembered mercy to Noah offering a means of escape, the ark that saved him.
The word "violence" in Hebrew is chamac, which means "unrighteousness, to be violent, treat violently".

The flood only happened because of human depravity and violence.

"The earth was corrupt in God's sight and was full of violence. God saw the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; because all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh, for the earth is filled with violence through them; behold, I will destroy them with the earth "(Gen. 6.11-13).
Violence, drugs, murders, robberies have multiplied. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), die each year around the world 1.6 million people, the globalized violence victims and other millions crippled by attacks.

Violence is everywhere regardless of race status, religion, sex and age. Kidnapping for example, is one of the cruelest forms of violence, let irreversible psychoemotional sequelae in individuals.

In globalized societies there is domestic violence involving children and teenagers, but the most common is against women: psychological violence, sexual harassment, personal injury which is called assault, false imprisonment, rape. Job and the prophets Hosea proclaimed:

"The earth is given into the hands of the wicked; and God still covers the face of her judges; if it did not cause it, who is it? "(Job 9:24).

"What prevails is only perjure himself, lie, kill, steal, and commit adultery, and there are burglaries and homicide homicide. Therefore, the land mourns, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field and the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea are perishing "(The 4.2-3).

[...] World governments are stunned, a creeping sense of dread by the increasing appearance of cruelty and contempt for the lives of others. The psalmist Asaph recounts this episode: "..pois the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty" (Ps 74.20). [Carlos Leon. The King Is Coming. Pg. 11-15].

In the days of Noah and Lot people were carefree, involved in materialism, corruption, immorality, orgies and scandals. "... Eating, drinking, marrying and giving in marriage ...".

The world at that time was full of iniquity about to mock God. Had forgotten that there is a sovereign Creator God. This caused God to destroy the inhabitants of the earth in Noah's day. Hundred and twenty years have been a period that GOD gave Noah's generation to repentance, and although Noah, the preacher of righteousness warned the people of the approaching flood, their warning was not heard. Little attention gave him the warning.

"The same happened in the days of Lot: they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; but, on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. So it will be the day when the Son of Man is revealed "(Luke l7.28-30).
[...] According to the Scriptures, the reason that led Adonai to destroy the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah fire from heaven, was a dissolute life of its residents. Abominable men, unthankful, without natural affection, practiced a dissolute life, was blasphemous and bloody, very attached to material goods (greed), have lustful glances, and of course, they are great sinners, without limit of sin, profligate individuals harbored version or contempt for women. Residents of these cities, not only practiced abominable sex (men with men, women with women) as were wicked, no pity for the good. Lot lived afflicted by these libertine inhabitants procedure. [Carlos Leon. The king is back. Pg. 53].
As a destruction happened in the days of Noah, where God sent rain for forty days and forty nights on the face of the earth, and all perished because of sin, except Noah and his family who obeyed the voice of the Lord God, and also to Sodom and Gomorrah where God sent fire and brimstone, saving only the family of Lot, there will also be a great judgment on the earth due to the multiplication of sin.

God in the days of Noah prepared an ark to save them; and Lot and his family He sent two angels to the order to move away urgently city. But today God will not build a boat and not send His angels to warn us, because He has sent His Son Jesus to save everyone who believes in Him (Mark 16:16).
God warned the antediluvian people through Noah that would mass destruction. He now warns through His Word. The signals recorded her show us that Jesus is coming for a people and His zealous of good works. Who are prepared will rise in jubilation, but the unprepared will be in great agony for the Antichrist.

Do not associate with fornicators.


"Have you a letter I have written unto you not to associate with fornicators." (1 Corinthians 5: 9)

Nobody prostitutes herself by accident. The person who has fallen into sin was won by the devil. Who prostitutes herself is away from God and thus continue until truly repent, confess your sin and get forgiveness from the Lord. If you do not repent and die in this condition, will be forever away from God in eternal torment. Prostitution is a victory of the devil in the lives of those who give to this practice.

The Word of God warns us that the devil walks to our surroundings, seeking whom he may devour. "Be sober; watch; for the devil is your adversary, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour "(1 Peter 5: 8). And to achieve his goal, he sends temptations. If the person does not reject them, he will command the demons to invade her life. Already fully engulfed in webs that trap of darkness, the individual sears your heart and no longer sees nothing wrong with using your body as a "want".

However, the truth is, this desire is a form of the devil dominate that life. Who indulges in any sin becomes the servant of that transgression, and by extension, the devil, even declaring that being evil is not part of your life. "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of lies. "(John 8:44) The demons use and abuse those lives that arise under their actions.

Men of God consented and have become slaves of the worst evil spirits. As servants of evil, have more willingly, lose power, composure and judge what the normal practice. The devil is a liar, offering their delicacies (sin), and the person engages in that lie. But actually, the intention of the devil is to make that person his servant and treats those who follow true as slaves in their most harmful desires. If there is no repentance, Satan led that person to hell, thus completing his plan of destruction. The saddest thing is to see that these people not only dishonor their own bodies, but also taste the second death.

As ministers of reconciliation of God with men, we must strive, consecrating ourselves to the Lord and meditating on His Word, in order to receive a guideline to help those lost. With the inspiration of God, we will be able to bring release to the unfortunates who fell into the web of satan.

All of us children of God, we must learn that our clothes should be clean at all times. "In all the time albs are your clothes, and never miss the oil on your head." (Ecclesiastes 9: 8) The devil is constantly walking around us while we are in this world. Put it in your head! So if he realize that we fall into its web, stained by sin, he will come into our lives. So we can not give silly and no chance to become his servants. His nature is bad and will make a hell in life who give you that opportunity. The right is not yielding to temptation.

God's Word is very clear: Do not associate with anyone who lives in prostitution. "Have you a letter you have written that you do not associate with fornicators. This does not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners with, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world. But now written to you not to associate with anyone who calls himself a brother but is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat "(1 Corinthians 5: 9-11.) If you join with someone who is in this situation, will be in rebellion, and your life will never be the same.

You can advertise the plan of God and intercede with the Lord for that person find the path of salvation, but never to associate with her, which has the devil as his lord. Get it? It can be used by his master to cause you any harm, even if it is not their intention, as she walks in darkness and does not know where to go.

Beloved, obey the Word of God, because anyone who obeys His Word, proves that love Him. "He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me; and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him. "(John 14:21) Amen.

Whatever ask in the Name of Jesus, He will do!


"And whatever you ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son." (John 14: 13)

For many, faith has always been a mystery. Beloved, faith was never mystery! When a person understands when the Lord wants to give the blessing, and she uses this understanding, pleading his cause, she spends being a successful person!

This can happen to you when you understand how receiving the blessings of God and establish this understanding. At the moment you have this understanding and determining that happen in your life, your health will be restored and other blessings be achieved.

It would be nice before we began this study, you put aside for a few minutes, all the knowledge he obtained during his life on the faith issue. In an unprejudiced attitude, examine the Scriptures with me as you were starting your walk on this subject. Put aside, for now, all you got on faith, and at the end of this study, you consider the good, discard the old baggage. But the study-mos, you regard it as ineffective or of little value, disregard it, and then practice what you have practiced living as has lived.

All people have some religious teaching! If we try to mix that we deal here with what we have learned, will complicate and will not yield the necessary effect that this understanding is proposed. So, I ask you by the end of this study, leave aside for now, what we have learned about faith. For what we study here is something new, stop practicing the faith of luck, to practice real faith. There will be many new things in this study you will discover!

But what is the faith of luck? Faith is the lucky one that many practice: "I am in need of a blessing, then, I will pray to GOD. He is blessing me, surrender to Him thanks, otherwise, do not have problems, I know how to solve: I go to the doctor, seek a loan, etc. "This is the sort of faith that many have practiced.

In this study, we will learn: What is to believe in GOD? How to face difficult situations and come out winners? How have and enjoy all that JESUS ​​CHRIST bought for the price of blood?

Self-worth - is necessary, first of all, you have a self-appreciation. It is taught in many religions that are worthless to God and that we are miserable beings without the slightest expression before Him.

Look! All believe that Jesus Christ paid the price for self rescue. What is true! But if the price paid was so high, is because we have some value to God. Therefore do not pay so much for so little, does not it?

So while you think that, because of skin color, culture, gender, financial status, or appearance. For these or other reasons you consider inferior to other people, never live well! You have to understand that no matter the color of their skin or their culture to GOD. What matters to you is the Lord recognizing its value to you and He is the image and likeness of Him: "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and rule over the fish of the sea, and the birds of the air and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that moves on the earth. "(Genesis 1: 26)

If anyone has the right to live well, healthy and prosper in everything in life, it's you! But while you do not believe the Word of God, will have a life of suffering, a situation that the Lord never dreamed for their children. "The thief comes only to steal and kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and have it abundantly." (John 10: 10)

What is determination? - "And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son." (John 14: 13) According to scholars of the Greek language, the word "ask" that John ministered, was the verb "aiteó "which obviously means" ask ", but not the way we understand, as begging for example. The verb "aiteó" also has another meaning as "fixed." So this here our first lesson! Us that we are born again in Christ, we need not ask beseeching God, the blessing that is already ours. Yes we must "determine and establish", ie take possession of what was promised to us! Logical that after we learn, through His Word, that certain blessing is ours. "Search the Scriptures, for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me." (John 5: 39)

The LORD JESUS ​​said! "And whatever you ask in my name I will do it." (John 14: 13) I believe that you know or met people who asked many blessings to God, but were not answered. Maybe you're one of those people. So I invite you to the end of this study "put into practice what you learn here." For when the Lord in the revelation of also of His blessing. The HOLY SPIRIT will confirm in his own heart! When you learn and confirm that the Holy Spirit is the truth, do not be equating join or awaiting further revelations to act, because we are studying on how to take possession of the blessings of God through faith in His Word. Learned, and the HOLY SPIRIT confirmed in your heart, take immediate possession.

"So we need to pray to God asking begging healing, prosperity, victory over temptation. What should I do then? "You must" determine "and demand that evil out of your life. You have to figure out what not to do anything, except, take in Christ, the authority, the power and the blessing that belongs to him.

You who are suffering, crying, desperate, hits a size, then hit the other and everything is closed. Beloved chord, lift your head and see things as they really are. For the time you act in faith and send the evil away, he will have to leave.

What is to determine? - Determine is to mark time, fix, prescribe, order, establish, is to decree and decide.

What is mark time? - Mark time is when you get the revelation of the Word of God, demanding that the evil go away, is to define what life wants, is to prescribe, order is, after learning from the Word of God, that this blessing is yours . But while not resist its action, evil will continue in your life. "Submit yourselves therefore to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you." (James 4: 7)

How many people are suffering all the time, does not it? Pray, supplicate, ask GOD that heal, resolve their problems, save sinners, etc. But, do not know that in fact it is the Lord who has been all along knotted arms waiting for them in an attitude of faith, "determine" that He may confirm His works and carry them through. "Verily, I say unto you, He that believeth in me will do the works that I do, and will do greater works than these, because I go unto my Father." (John 14: 12)

Is that what's happening with you? You run to one side, runs to the other, I asked, begs, but it seems that this God or is deaf-blind. Of course it is not! The Lord can not bless as you do not open the way for him to operate. "Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight." (Luke 3: 4) has to prepare the way for God to operate.

The simplicity of the work of God - To many, because it seems so simple, they do not believe it to be that way. Beloved, the determination is faster and safer way to achieve the blessings of God. When we begin to act according to His Gospel, not only obey the Lord, but we learned that no matter how simple it may seem, it works.

The LORD has done nothing complicated! Men is complicating what they do and also try to complicate the work of God. In fact, the Lord intended it to spiritual things were so easy, that even children, people with mental retardation or with the hard reasoning, could also receive their blessings.

In fact, I advise you, when someone comes wanting to complicate things of God, to those nebulous and mysterious conversations, I advise to refuse them all. Beloved, if God is, put this in your head, "is simple and uncomplicated," is how the ministry of Jesus. When the Lord Jesus was here on earth, He opened His mouth in simplicity so great that people, when they heard these Eternal Truths, thought they could not come from God, but to accept. Theologians and scholars of Jerusalem not, is that they thought they knew the truth. Beloved, let's just stay with the truth of JESUS​​. "Jesus said to him: I am the way and the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." (John 14: 6)

A challenge - When you determine the name of Jesus can rest assured that your order will not fail. JESUS ​​said! "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words shall not pass away." (Matthew 24: 35) So you can be sure, if you determine the name of Jesus, the power of God into action, unless you remove his word. But if you keep believing, by faith, that the work has already been done, certainly will.

When we act on the Word of God, we can be sure of victory, but only when we act on His Word. When a person acts on the word of religion or theologians, certainly will not have that certainty that only the Word of the Lord assures us.

As difficult as the situation may appear and people around us discouraged us, saying: "It's no use, it will not work." Not embark on this faith! Because it will surely sink. "Keeping the faith and good conscience, which some rejecting have made shipwreck of the faith." (1 Timothy 1: 19) But when we use the faith in the Word of God and the statement we released what we believe, surely we will get what we declare.

Rest in the LORD - After we determined, we can rest in the faithfulness of the Lord, even if symptoms remain and everything seems we can not vouch for that. At this time, it is very important to rest in the faithfulness of the Lord, even though everything seems that our order over evil was not obeyed. Therefore we are we do the work of God and we fix and determine the limits. Everything passes less the infallible Word of God. "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words shall not pass away." (Matthew 24: 35)

But if you doubt, thinking: "Does evil is gone, do we really received my blessing?". This "will" is doubtful, and when doubt His Word, the Lord is prevented from operating in our favor. "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for it is necessary that he who comes to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him." (Hebrews 11: 6)

Beloved, pray stop crying, pleading with God, which, in his goodness, will remember you. Rather than do so, you should rejoice in His presence. Pray yes, not to beg the blessing, but thank the Lord for how happy you are, having had the opportunity and the understanding that in determining all that, he will in his favor.

Prayers of the Old Testament - Some religious and theologians do not accept this understanding! They assert that the Old Testament King David begged God to have mercy on him. Claim that Hannah, mother of Samuel, prayed so that the prophet Eli thought she was drunk. They really prayed that way! And you also want to pray like that?

Beloved, the Old Testament was replaced by the New Testament. These prayers beseeching God to cry, were held in the Old Testament. These people were not yet born again, therefore, had no right to have, they were dependent on the mercies of God. The Lord no longer have mercy on us, because we already had when He sent His Son Jesus to die on the cross on our behalf. Christ paid our debt! Now, we should not pray to God for mercy, we should rather pray thanking Him for what, for his mercy has done for us.

Prayers of the New Testament - See how the apostle Paul prayed in the New Testament: "My God, according to his riches shall supply all your needs in glory by Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4: 19) "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Philippians 4: 13) "Thanks to God, who always causes us to triumph in Christ." (2 Corinthians 2: 14) Paul knew that the mercies of God had been poured.

But there are people who still do not know! They enter the Church, observe those religious repeatedly begging God for help to your financial, physical, marital shortcomings, but find no answers. What do these people think? "Do not want that JESUS​​! He does not answer and does not bless these people, certainly will not bless me! "

We supposed that the hospital enters two men, one an evangelical and voodoo, the two come in the same sector of care. The voodoo is a polite guy, so pulling issue with the evangelical and the compliments. Asks the Gospel which is the reason for his trip to the doctor. The Gospel answers the reason and also the voodoo. At this point, the evangelical realizes right to talk about JESUS ​​macumbeiro the moment: "Look, I believe in a God who can heal you!" The voodoo rejoice, but is surprised: "But if your God is so good, why have not you cured?"

So what is the difference of evangelicals and macumbeiros? The difference is that we go to heaven and they do not, unless they repent of their sins. Correct! But they equate with the doctor in the queue, the queue of supplication, asking for a loan at the bank, etc. Ie, we serve only GOD will bless us after death? Of course not!

Now that you discovered its real possibilities before the LORD, you who are of God, recreated in Christ Jesus for success, for a full life, to determine what you want. Confess yourself: "I can do all things in Him who strengthens me!" Now you're on the Wonderful GOD, seeing their real possibilities in JESUS​​.

Acorda loved! The LORD JESUS ​​is showing you how to act. It's time to wake up, to take his position in Christ. Because, otherwise, continued suffering. GOD is waiting for you to get up now and determine. Whether it's a simple headache, or some stomach trouble, kidney stones, financial problems, marital problems, or even a worse problem. Stand up now, in the name of JESUS ​​and take a position. You can do all things through the Word of Jesus that strengthens you. Do not let the devil deceive you more, because it's time to stand up and take the good word of God.

Examples of determination - In the Holy Bible we find numerous examples of people who have determined. Despite that, few knew them, but they were successful. Initially we will highlight the Apostle Paul in the city of Lystra. "And there sat in Lystra a certain man leso feet, lame from his mother's womb, who never had walked. This same heard Paul speak, who steadfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed. Said in a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked "(Acts 14: 8-10).

Paul was not preaching in Israel, because the city of Lystra was not in Israel. In this city there were no Jews listening to Paul, there were Gentiles who worshiped gods and knew the ministry of Jesus. The apostle Paul was accompanied by Barnabas. By reporting that followed later, Barnabas seems, in the eyes of the people, was what stood out. For it was he who prepared everything for Paul preach, they then thought he was the leader. The people of Lystra worshiped various gods and the largest one was Jupiter. According to them, had fallen an image of the sky, so they called Barnabas Jupiter, after the miracle of the lesion man's feet, and Paul they called Mercury (god of eloquence) to be an inferior god.

In this place, there were many people who never heard of Jesus. Among these people was a man of foot lesion since birth. This man, humanly speaking, had no chance of being cured.

Today's science says that a human being be two years on top of a bed without movement, even if you get cured, you can not walk away, the muscles would not support the weight of the body. This man was not a boy, not a boy, also had never walked. But, sat in the crowd heard the apostle preach. Paul was doing just as Jesus did, going from town to town preaching the Word of God.

In the city of Lystra, Paul was preaching the word of God. When Paul started preaching, this man paid attention to what he spoke. When a person's attention to the Word of God, it is illuminated by the power of His Word.

In Luke relates the return of Jesus in the synagogue to preach. When Jesus taught in the synagogue was present, also was a crooked woman. JESUS ​​noted that this woman gave His Message and attention she had received this message, enlightenment. JESUS ​​nor prayed for her! "And behold there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years; and was bowed together, and could in no way straighten up. And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto him. Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity "(Luke 13: 11-12)

The apostle Paul also stared at this man and saw that he had faith to be healed. Then he said: "I said aloud. Stand upright on thy feet And he leaped and walked." (Acts 14: 10) The man jumped up and walked away. People around were open-mouthed, wanted to make Paul and Barnabas worshiped. For very cost Paul stopped they made sacrifices to them, as if they were gods.

Understood beloved? The Apostle Paul did not pray, did not join people to make a prayer chain. He invoked the power of God, after announcing his Gospel. Invoke the power of God is to preach His Gospel! "I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth;. The Jew first, and also to the Greek" (Romans 1: 16)

Another example of determination was Joshua. When he commanded the sun and the moon stopped for almost one day: "Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and said the sight of Israel, Sun, holds you at Gibeon, and thou, Moon, in the valley Ajalom "(Joshua 10: 12).

The people Israel was fighting against the five kings and was winning, but the day would be for. When night came, the battle was interrupted and the kings would regroup. The other day Joshua would have a lot of work to defeat the Amorites, then he prayed to the LORD. Joshua had no understanding that we have, but he had faith that God would be with him. Thou, Moon, in the valley Ajalom Sun holds you at Gibeon, and "(Joshua 10: 12) so we did not think twice. At the moment he gave that order, the power of God went into action and all the angels of God holding the earth, mars, jupiter, saturn, the stars, the heavenly bodies, the stars, the angels held everything. Because, otherwise, there would be a heavenly disaster.

The people of Israel continued to fight. But the Amorites army was amazed, because the day did not end. When he was coming to a close another day and the people of Israel had won the war, Joshua commanded the sun and the moon press ahead in their course. "And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? The sun, therefore, stopped in the midst of heaven, and do not hurry to go down about a whole day. And there was no day like that before it or after it, that Jehovah hearkened unto the voice of a man; for the LORD fought for Israel "(Joshua 10: 13,14).

This man, exactly like us, did not understand astronomy or astrophysics and Joshua only understand the Word of God. You also do not need to understand how God heals a paralytic, healing a blind man, as the Lord of life who is already dead. What you have to understand is the Word of GOD! Because if you are right with the Lord, may determine that the power of God into action and accomplish what is determined.

Now I ask you! If at that time you pray, what will happen? Learned what will happen because your front, you expect a miracle. And it's going to happen right now, right where you are. Pray with me: "Our God and our Father, before us, in that moment of prayer, that His power. LORD GOD I along with my brother, come take possession of our blessing. LORD look and admire this my brother who are praying with me, I'm sure that His power will work the miracle in his favor. I'm sure the Lord, we will see miracles happen, I'm sure I'll see your power at work in my brother's life. JESUS ​​is LORD in thy name we pray. "Beloved, if possible, put your hand over your illness. If not illness, put on your heart. Now say: 'Devil finished! This is an order I'm giving you, I'm not asking you, I'm ordering you, because in the name of JESUS​​, I determine that out of my life, my finances, my marriage, my health (tell you where he is grieving) devil's name in the name of JESUS ​​I am commanding you, grabs your illness, take your bad and goes away in the Name of JESUS​​. Break their power now, give the royal decree, give the decision and order to go away and never return, in the Name of JESUS​​. Amen! "By faith, raise your hands to the sky and thank the Lord for the victory achieved. Amen.

The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.


"Admit to your faults one another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective." (James 5:16)

When we consecrate ourselves in praise to the Lord God, when we are in that delicious prayer before our Father, we must be very careful and paying close attention to the blessing that God wants to give us through our prayer. At this moment, we feel that God did come.

King Solomon was consecrating a temple, he made a very blessed prayer. In verse 22 of First Kings says: "And Solomon stood before the altar of the LORD in the presence of all the congregation of Israel; and extended their hands to the heavens. "(1 Kings 8:22) Then the king blesses all the people of Israel. "It happened, therefore, that after Solomon to do the Lord this prayer and this prayer, on his knees with his hands spread up to heaven, he arose from before the altar of the LORD. And stood upright, and blessed the whole congregation of Israel with a loud voice, saying, "(1 Kings 8: 54,55).

When you come into the presence of God in consecration, you should pray directed by the Holy Spirit, who learned about that understanding of God through His word. Because when we pray, the Lord God speaks to us, as He did Solomon. When King Solomon finished praying lifted his hands toward the congregation of Israel, and blessed them.
"Blessed be the LORD, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that said; not failed one word of all his good promise, which he spake by his servant Moses. "(1 Kings 8:56) Understand well. If the Lord God has honored His servant Moses in such a way that none of His words fell from that handed him the more honor the Lord of all the words that gave us written in the Holy Bible, exactly those that He quickens and your heart that did take notice.
When you understand that this blessing written in the Holy Bible is his pray to God about it. But if the blessing does not come, ask the Lord, ask Him to show what is disturbing to be blessed. Sin may be, sometimes not, perhaps lack of understanding of the Word, or sometimes God wants to show you something, but hangs on you a spiritual distraction. "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge." (Hosea 4: 6)

My dear beloved, we must understand that we have the right and duty as sons and daughters of God, to take possession of the blessings secured by Jesus on Calvary's cross, blessing those paid the price of blood. "Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows bore; and we esteemed Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed "(Isaiah 53: 4,5). Nobody would pay that much for so little. Do not you think?

Then, in a single sentence, with determination, truly believing in the word of God seriously, without fear or hesitation, tell the devil, "Devil, get your dirty paws off my life, take all that is yours and beat a hasty retreat in the name of the LORD JESUS​​. "Our Savior Jesus Christ has assured us that authority over darkness. "And these signs shall follow them that believe: In my name shall they cast out devils." (Mark 16:17)

King Solomon was opening the understanding of its people. "The LORD our God be with us as he was with our fathers; not forsake us, and lead us not. Inclining our hearts to you, to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, which he commanded our fathers. And let these my words, that I prayed before the LORD, be nigh unto the LORD our God day and night, that he maintain the cause of his servant and the cause of his people Israel, each on his day . "(1 Kings 8: 57-59) Solomon did not withdraw his prayer.

Beloved, do not remove your prayer. Prayed the prayer of faith, do not back up his words, believe. "Admit to your faults one another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective." (James 5:16) Your words will be before the LORD.

"For all the peoples of the earth may know that the LORD is God, and there is none else." (1 Kings 8:60) His success is a testament to your family, friends and many others who hear about the power of God .

"And all thy heart is with the LORD our God, to walk in his statutes, and keep his commandments, as at this day." (1 Kings 8:61) Have a whole heart before God, otherwise he, you do not will walk in the statutes and commandments of God, that which is already established by God and the revealed.

The revelation of God comes in three ways: Through a statement of fact; A promise; And a reprimand. "I rebuke and chasten those I love, be zealous therefore, and repent." (Revelation 3:19)

Declaration: The cure is a statement of fact, for the LORD JESUS ​​already took our pain, our infirmities and our sins on Calvary's cross.
Promise: When the Word of God reaches you and opens your understanding and you understand what the Lord wants to make you a blessing. You must pray and seek what God did understand and become reality in your life. This is a commandment of GOD!

Reprimand: A lot of people do not like to be scolded, but reproof is one of the most beautiful things that God makes with their children. When we are away in the ways of the Lord, when we are being contaminated by sin and it seems that there's no way, for His mercy, our God rebukes us. Sometimes mildly, others very hard.

The rebuke of God is something that we must not overlook, for us to walk with our complete, perfect and whole heart before God. "And all thy heart is with the LORD our God, to walk in his statutes, and keep his commandments, as at this day." (I Kings 8:61) With the perfect heart, you will cry for the promise, will take possession of the statement and will bow before the rebuke of God.

Never insurja when God tells you that a practice is wrong. When it comes to his understanding that the word condemns such practices, you should say: "O Lord GOD, forgive me, here this former practitioner of that such a mistake. From now only want to walk with you. "By doing so, you will please God, and when the Lord is pleased with our attitudes, He strengthens us. "I told them, Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those who have nothing prepared him: for this day is holy to our Lord, so be not grieved, for the joy of the LORD is your strength. "(Nehemiah 8:10)

Beloved, if the Lord has rebuked say to Him: "Lord God thank you, I will walk in his rebuke." Obey the Lord and obey His Word, in so doing, you will find true happiness that both sought. Amen.

THE WEAK BECOME STRONG




Paul is a good example of poor transformed into strong. This apostle of the Gentiles was a great instrument of God for the salvation of many people and many people. Before you get to be a divine strength, however, he had to find his weakness until he was convinced that the surpassing power belongs to God and is manifested mainly through insecure channels, such as humans. Thus, even in Judaism, Paul stood out from the wise and learned of the Jewish people, but converted to Christ, he began to see himself as a vessel of clay in the Potter's hand.

In his first letter to the church in Corinth, Paul observed:

For the preaching of the cross is foolishness to those who perish; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written: I will destroy the wisdom of the wise and bring to nothing the intelligence of the intelligent. Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the inquirer of this century? Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For since in the wisdom of God the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God to save those who believe by the foolishness of preaching. (1 Cor 1.18-21)

The word of the cross, the gospel of Jesus, or weakness seems crazy to some, but for others, those who are saved it is the key to success and victory.

The Jews sought signs of God; Greeks, wisdom. Both could not understand a sermon based on the crucifixion. To them it was illogical that an act of surrender (and weakness), as manifested by Jesus on the cross, could be the greatest evidence of God's power [to save humanity]. The wise and strong they could not understand it, but the ignorant and the weak could [divinely] understand the meaning of the atoning death of Jesus in all its magnitude.

Even today, it is difficult for many to accept that we have to be weak in order to be strong in God. So, are so confused before Paul's statement that when he was weak then he was strong, since it is precisely the weakness that enhances the power of God (2 Cor 12:10).

This reality became clear to a Latin-American pastor from experience that he lived to attend a seminar of the famous evangelist Morris Cerullo.

That pastor was considered important and powerful for driving a congregation of approximately 200 members. At the seminar, met several ministers of different locations worldwide. On one such occasion, was presented to a skinny African pastor frail and physically insignificant. This was also a man of little education, it was a simple farmer when God called him to the ministry.

After the usual greetings and a few kind words, came the anticipated question: "Where is your church? How many members does it have? "- Asked the important Hispanic pastor. The response of the African was in a humble tone of voice so low I could barely hear: "I am a pastor of a congregation of 47,000 members."

The caller, who was white, strong and deep voice, was astonished. It seemed incredible that one black, brittle and muffled voice little man, could be a powerful instrument of God in one situated in the heart of Africa nation; while he himself, who thought himself the most, had a church of only two hundred participants. To him, the lesson is quite obvious: who wants to be strong in God, must acknowledge his weakness and his need of the Lord.

O mundo quer aprovação, não verdades

O mundo quer de toda maneira que nos conformemos e aceitemos os seus valores, mas não os valores de Deus. (O mundo quer aprovação, não verdades).

Porém, nós que seguimos a Bíblia, sabemos que ela é a única verdade que pode libertar o homem do pecado e do juízo eterno. O mundo pode não querer cumprir a Bíblia, mas ela sempre se cumprirá no mundo! Por isso precisamos conhecê-la e torná-la conhecida, sem modificar suas palavras para agradar os outros.

Se você tem desejado seguir a Jesus, leia a Bíblia e estude-a, para que ninguém te engane com falsas religiões, doutrinas e ensinamentos. As pessoas pregam mentiras o tempo todo e vocé saberá identificá-las à medida que conhecer a Verdade. É através da Bíblia que você receberá sua salvação em Jesus e estará apto para cumprir a vontade do Pai. Leia:

"Portanto, livrem-se de toda impureza moral e da maldade que prevalece, e aceitem humildemente a palavra implantada em vocês, a qual é poderosa para salvá-los. Sejam praticantes da palavra, e não apenas ouvintes, enganando-se a si mesmos. Aquele que ouve a palavra, mas não a põe em prática, é semelhante a um homem que olha a sua face num espelho e, depois de olhar para si mesmo, sai e logo esquece a sua aparência. Mas o homem que observa atentamente a lei perfeita que traz a liberdade, e persevera na prática dessa lei, não esquecendo o que ouviu mas praticando-o, será feliz naquilo que fizer." (Tiago 1:21-25)

A Arvore Seca.

Estava na estrada quando eu vi esta árvore e pensei em algo interessante... A paisagem estava linda, com muito verde e tinha até uma pequena árvore que saía junto a raiz dela. Porém o mais impressionante é que esta grande árvore estava completamente seca.

Então me veio um grande temor, pois essa árvore não cresceu da noite para o dia... Ela precisou de anos, ficou gigantesca e ao seu lado floresceram muitas outras. Porém um dia, não sei por qual motivo, ela secou-se sozinha, grande e sem folhas, à beira dessa longa estrada.

Que isso sirva de reflexão para mim e você. Será que depois de tantos anos na fé, servindo ao Senhor Jesus, nós deixamos que os ventos, as tempestades, as afrontas das pessoas ou o desprezo delas, secassem a nossa alma? Como tem sido nossos últimos dias? Será que nos acomodamos diante do nosso crescimento, ficando cheios de experiência e conhecimento, porém sem novos frutos?

Lembre-se disso: "Mais importante do que começar bem, é terminar bem." Muitas pessoas começam a vida com Cristo cheias de entusiasmo, vão a todos eventos na igreja, participam de vigílias, vivem em comunhão com os irmãos, mas depois de um tempo, se isolam, ficam feridas, tristes, frustradas e cansadas de lutar. Parece que desde então, elas não conseguem mais ser felizes e não sabem como se levantar. É por isso que Jesus disse:

"Por se multiplicar a iniqüidade, o amor de muitos esfriará. Mas aquele que perseverar até ao fim, esse será salvo." (Mateus 24:12-13)

Se você se encontra nessa situação, quero te dar um conselho: Persevere! Deixe de se lamentar e comece uma nova vida hoje! Se você não tem ido mais à igreja e perdeu sua comunhão com Jesus, volte para os braços Dele hoje. Busque uma igreja evangélica, que pregue com seriedade a Palavra de Deus e ali você receberá o alimento espiritual e terá comunhão com os irmãos. E acima de tudo, creia, que mesmo com sua história de sequidão e frieza, Deus ainda faz parte dela! Deus não se limita ao tempo de florescer, por isso você só precisa voltar a cuidar de sua raiz e logo novos frutos de alegria e bênçãos começarão a brotar em sua vida! Veja:

"Como é feliz aquele que não segue o conselho dos ímpios, não imita a conduta dos pecadores, nem se assenta na roda dos zombadores! Ao contrário, sua satisfação está na lei do Senhor, e nessa lei medita dia e noite. É como árvore plantada à beira de águas correntes: Dá fruto no tempo certo e suas folhas não murcham. Tudo o que ele faz prospera!" (Salmo 1:1-3)

Que Deus te abençoe,

Pastor Valni Borges

Nossa obrigação é conhecer a Verdade!!!


Devemos ler e estudar a Bíblia porque é a palavra de Deus a nós. II Timóteo 3:16 afirma que a Bíblia é “divinamente inspirada”. Em outras palavras, é a Palavra de Deus a nós. Há tantas perguntas feitas por filósofos e pessoas, e que Deus responde a nós nas Escrituras: Qual o propósito da vida? De onde venho? Há vida após a morte? O que acontece após a morte? Como posso chegar ao céu? Por que o mundo está cheio do mal? Por que luto tanto para fazer o que é certo? Além dessas “grandes” perguntas, a Bíblia dá muitos conselhos práticos em áreas como: O que devo procurar em um cônjuge? Como posso ter um casamento bem sucedido? Como posso ser um bom amigo? Como posso ser um bom pai ou uma boa mãe? O que é o sucesso e como consegui-lo? Como posso mudar? O que realmente importa na vida? Como posso viver de modo a não olhar pra trás e me arrepender? Como posso agradar a Deus? Como posso obter perdão? Como posso lidar com as circunstâncias injustas e acontecimentos ruins na vida de forma vitoriosa?

Devemos ler e estudar a Bíblia porque ela é totalmente confiável, sem erro. A Bíblia é única entre tantos livros chamados “sagrados”, pois não dá simplesmente ensinamentos morais dizendo: “confie em mim”. Ao contrário, nos dá a capacidade de testá-la verificando as centenas de detalhadas profecias que faz, verificando os registros históricos que faz, e checando os fatos científicos que relata. Aqueles que dizem que a Bíblia tem erros têm seus ouvidos cerrados à verdade. Uma vez Jesus perguntou o que era mais fácil dizer: “Seus pecados estão perdoados” ou “Levante, pegue sua cama e ande.” Então Ele provou que Ele tinha a capacidade de perdoar pecados (algo que não podemos ver com nossos olhos) curando o paralítico (algo que os que se achavam ao redor podiam verificar com seus próprios olhos). Da mesma forma, a nós é dada a certeza de que a Palavra de Deus é verdadeira quando discute áreas espirituais que não podemos verificar com nossos sentidos, mostrando-se verdadeira naquelas áreas que podemos (exatidão histórica, científica e profética).

O ZELO – UMA QUALIDADE AMADA POR DEUS


Uma das qualidades indispensáveis na vida dos servos do Senhor é o “Zelo”- DEDICAÇÃO, ESMERO, APLICAÇÃO, CUIDADO, CAPRICHO, VIGÍLIA, ATENÇÃO; ela manifesta-se no ardor, na afeição e no cuidado extremo por Deus e Sua obra. É um estado de vida que leva-nos a renunciar o “eu”, os planos próprios e os sonhos cultivados ao longo de uma vida. O zelo ao Eterno obriga-nos a colocá-Lo em primeiro lugar em detrimento da nossa própria vida. Pois, o que nos importa é satisfazer àquele que nos chamou e agraciou com a salvação. Sejamos, pois zelosos!
A vida dos salvos é marcada pela total entrega, já não somos nossos, vivemos para a honra e glória única do Salvador. O que leva-nos a agir desta forma é o (1) amor que é gerado nos corações, que sensíveis ao Espírito procuram (2) obedecer às determinações divinas, (3) confiantes que são passos seguros e que produzem (4) intimidade que culmina com a vida eterna.

O VERDADEIRO EXEMPLO A SEGUIR

Entendendo um pouco Sobre o Livro das Revelações!!!


Apocalipse 11:1-19 

“Foi-me dado um caniço semelhante a uma vara, e também me foi dito: Dispõe-te e mede o santuário de Deus, o seu altar e os que naquele adoram; mas deixa de parte o átrio exterior do santuário e não o meças, porque foi ele dado aos gentios; estes, por quarenta e dois meses, calcarão aos pés a cidade santa. Darei às minhas duas testemunhas que profetizem por mil duzentos e sessenta dias, vestidas de pano de saco. São estas as duas oliveiras e os dois candeeiros que se acham em pé diante do Senhor da terra. Se alguém pretende causar-lhes dano, sai fogo da sua boca e devora os inimigos; sim, se alguém pretender causar-lhes dano, certamente, deve morrer. Elas têm autoridade para fechar o céu, para que não chova durante os dias em que profetizarem. Têm autoridade também sobre as águas, para convertê-las em sangue, bem como para ferir a terra com toda sorte de flagelos, tantas vezes quantas quiserem. Quando tiverem, então, concluído o testemunho que devem dar, a besta que surge do abismo pelejará contra elas, e as vencerá, e matará, e o seu cadáver ficará estirado na praça da grande cidade que, espiritualmente, se chama Sodoma e Egito, onde também o seu Senhor foi crucificado. Então, muitos dentre os povos, tribos, línguas e nações contemplam os cadáveres das duas testemunhas, por três dias e meio, e não permitem que esses cadáveres sejam sepultados. Os que habitam sobre a terra se alegram por causa deles, realizarão festas e enviarão presentes uns aos outros, porquanto esses dois profetas atormentaram os que moram sobre a terra. Mas, depois dos três dias e meio, um espírito de vida, vindo da parte de Deus, neles penetrou, e eles se ergueram sobre os pés, e àqueles que os viram sobreveio grande medo; e as duas testemunhas ouviram grande voz vinda do céu, dizendo-lhes: Subi para aqui. E subiram ao céu numa nuvem, e os seus inimigos as contemplaram. Naquela hora, houve grande terremoto, e ruiu a décima parte da cidade, e morreram, nesse terremoto, sete mil pessoas, ao passo que as outras ficaram sobremodo aterrorizadas e deram glória ao Deus do céu. Passou o segundo ai. Eis que, sem demora, vem o terceiro ai. O sétimo anjo tocou a trombeta, e houve no céu grandes vozes, dizendo: O reino do mundo se tornou de nosso Senhor e do seu Cristo, e ele reinará pelos séculos dos séculos. E os vinte e quatro anciãos que se encontram sentados no seu trono, diante de Deus, prostraram-se sobre o seu rosto e adoraram a Deus, dizendo: Graças te damos, Senhor Deus, Todo-Poderoso, que és e que eras, porque assumiste o teu grande poder e passaste a reinar. Na verdade, as nações se enfureceram; chegou, porém, a tua ira, e o tempo determinado para serem julgados os mortos, para se dar o galardão aos teus servos, os profetas, aos santos e aos que temem o teu nome, tanto aos pequenos como aos grandes, e para destruíres os que destroem a terra. Abriu-se, então, o santuário de Deus, que se acha no céu, e foi vista a arca da Aliança no seu santuário, e sobrevieram relâmpagos, vozes, trovões, terremoto e grande saraivada.”

A Palavra de Apocalipse 11 é muito importante para nós, assim como toda a Palavra de Deus. Para destruir o mundo, há uma obra crítica que Deus precisa fazer de antemão. É a colheita do povo de Israel nos últimos tempos. Deus também tem outra obra para fazer aos Israelitas e Gentios, e isso é para que eles participem na primeira ressurreição e no arrebatamento tendo sido martirizados.

e o seu cadáver ficará estirado na praça da grande cidade que, espiritualmente, se chama Sodoma e Egito, onde também o seu Senhor foi crucificado.

Este versículo nos fala que as “duas testemunhas” são exatamente do povo de Israel. Os dois servos que Deus levantará dos Israelitas não são Gentios, mas do próprio povo de Israel. Assim, as duas testemunhas serão mortas no mesmo lugar onde Jesus foi crucificado. Este fato nos diz claramente que estas duas testemunhas são Israelitas. Para o povo de Israel, eles são os servos de Deus.

Para o povo de Israel, que está espiritualmente como o povo de Sodoma e do Egito, Deus estabelecerá dos profetas, dando a eles poder, e fazendo com que eles testifiquem que Jesus é o Messias por quem os Israelitas têm esperado, para que o povo de Israel possa se arrepender e crer em Jesus.

O Anticristo matará os dois servos de Deus no lugar do Gólgota, onde Jesus foi crucificado. Porque os seguidores do Anticristo têm espíritos maus, eles odiarão estas duas testemunhas que crêem em Jesus e testemunham sobre Ele. Assim como os soldados Romanos que crucificaram Jesus e perfuraram Seu lado com uma lança, aqueles com espíritos maus odiarão não somente a Jesus, mas também as duas testemunhas de Deus e as matarão.

Versículo 9: Então, muitos dentre os povos, tribos, línguas e nações contemplam os cadáveres das duas testemunhas, por três dias e meio, e não permitem que esses cadáveres sejam sepultados.

Entre o povo de Israel também, existem aqueles que não crêem em Jesus Cristo como seu Salvador. Vendo a morte da carne dos dois servos (as duas oliveiras), estas pessoas ficarão extasiadas com seu sentimento de triunfo, e para aumentar este sentimento de vitória, eles não darão às suas vítimas um enterro apropriado. Mas sua vitória será despedaçada quando Deus trouxer as “duas testemunhas” à vida novamente e eles irão temer a Deus.

Poderão comemorar a morte dos dois servos de Deus, mas isso não durará muito, pois em breve eles descobrirão que o Anticristo não é páreo para Jesus Cristo – desapontamento e vazio tomarão conta deles.

Estas pessoas desmerecem a Palavra da profecia de Deus pregada pelos dois profetas. Permanecendo contra estes dois servos que Deus levantará, eles eventualmente serão cortados da última colheita da salvação e terminarão se tornando seguidores de Satanás.

Versículo 10: Os que habitam sobre a terra se alegram por causa deles, realizarão festas e enviarão presentes uns aos outros, porquanto esses dois profetas atormentaram os que moram sobre a terra.

Como elas pregarão a Palavra da profecia de Deus, as duas testemunhas levantadas por Deus para a salvação dos Israelitas serão um grande tormento para os seguidores de Satanás. Assim, todos se regozijarão com a morte destas duas testemunhas e enviarão presentes uns aos outros para se parabenizarem.

Nós também ficamos felizes quando aqueles que nos incomodam desaparecem. O Anticristo e seus seguidores odiarão quando as duas testemunhas levantadas por Deus pregarem a Sua Palavra. Toda vez que ouvirem a Palavra de Deus, seus espíritos ficarão cheios de agonia. Porque foram tão atormentados quando as duas testemunhas falaram sobre Jesus, eles se regozijarão quando as virem sendo enviadas à morte pelo Anticristo. É por isso que eles trocarão presentes e parabenizarão uns aos outros.

Versículo 11: Mas, depois dos três dias e meio, um espírito de vida, vindo da parte de Deus, neles penetrou, e eles se ergueram sobre os pés, e àqueles que os viram sobreveio grande medo;

Deus, contudo, fará as duas testemunhas participarem da primeira ressurreição. Esta Palavra é a prova do fato de que os santos, que foram martirizados para defenderem sua fé após terem sido salvos do pecado, pela crença na Palavra da salvação dada por Deus, participarão da primeira ressurreição.

Que o sopro da vida entrou neles em “três dias e meio” nos fala que o Senhor permitirá a sua ressurreição logo em seguida, assim como Ele próprio foi ressuscitado da Sua morte da carne. É uma grande bênção de Deus a permissão para que todos os santos tenham esta fé da primeira ressurreição, mas para os pecadores, ela trará grande medo e terror. A primeira ressurreição dos santos é a promessa de Deus e Sua recompensa pela sua fé.

WITH DUE RESPECT, BUT CAN NOT LEAVE TO SAY, ​​GO EXPLORE OTHER!


Faithful walk not have access to the Universal Temple during the 1st month 

After four years of work that cost £ 680 million, Solomon's Temple, built in the Brás neighborhood, central region of São Paulo, the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God, will be inaugurated on 31 only for guests and authorities. 

The area of ​​100 thousand square meters has also date to be open to the faithful --who want to attend services must pay the passage to the charter company contracted by Universal, to the value of £ 45 per person for those who live in capital. 

After the publication of this report, the press office of the Universal Church came into contact with the UOL to clarify that the restriction on "access to the Temple of Solomon is exclusive to the initial opening period, which ends Aug. 22." 

According to the text, the decision to limit access to those who were bus "is the result of cooperation with the Universal municipal administration for the operation of the Temple of Solomon not accentuate local traffic." 

The note ends by saying that "access to the Temple of Solomon is --e always free and universal to all who want será-- his encounter with God." 

On Thursday (24), the dome of the church held a news conference in Santo Amaro, in the south, to explain details about the temple, the largest religious space of the country, four times higher than the National Shrine of Aparecida. 

The site will accommodate an audience of 10 000 people, seated. The room is sumptuous, with Italian marble pink, 10 000 LED bulbs and olive trees imported from Israel.

For the inauguration of the 31st authorities as President Dilma Rousseff, her predecessor Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, Governor Geraldo Alckmin and Mayor Fernando Haddad are expected for the event. 

"We have hundreds of officials. Swing We have no names, but Dilma already anticipated and stated publicly that will be present," said Renato Parente, a journalist who presented the details of the temple. 

Parente said that no person could enter the temple on their own. Whosoever will, will need to hire the charter service done by bus. 

For people from other cities and states the value of the ticket has not yet been estimated by the same bus company, whose name was not revealed. 

"It's a price to be charged by the charter company, is not the church.'s Not a normal bus line, is tourism," Parente said. 

The temple will also have a screen 20 feet long (bigger than the screens of the stadiums of the World Cup) and 60 apartments for guests pastors, besides the official residence of the pastor Macedo, founder of Universal. 

The church also released rules for the use of clothes. Women should avoid using miniskirts and short clothes. 

For men, is forbidden the use of uniform shorts and sporting clubs. Flip flops, tank tops, hats, and sunglasses were also prohibited. 

counterparts 

The authorization for the operation of the site was issued by the City on the 10th, through the certificate guidelines of Traffic Engineering Company (CET), a document that certifies that the entrepreneur has fulfilled counterparts by being a traffic generator polo. 

Among the works that the church had to perform, are the installation of traffic lights at five intersections and the planting of 25 saplings. 

Another consideration was the demotion of five crossings guides. The certificate of completion of work must still be requested. The information is the newspaper "O Estado de S. Paulo".

QUAL É O NOME DA IGREJA DE CRISTO? A ICAR NÃO O É CERTAMENTE.


Um católico pergunta: "Por que os protestantes dizem que a bíblia é a coluna e o fundamento da verdade quando a p'ropria bíblia diz claramente que "'e a igreja " ( 1 (Tim.3.15 ) ? Por favor, algum protestante poderia me dar o nome dessa igreja?"

O versículo que referes fala de uma igreja firmada nas Escrituras e na doutrina dos apóstolos, certo? A igreja de Cristo, composta pelos salvos e não de uma denominação. Vamos ler parte da carta:

"Tu, porém, permanece naquilo que aprendeste, e de que foste inteirado, sabendo de quem o tens aprendido, e que desde a tua meninice sabes as sagradas Escrituras, que podem fazer-te sábio para a salvação, pela fé que há em Cristo Jesus. Toda a Escritura é divinamente inspirada, e proveitosa para ensinar, para redargüir, para corrigir, para instruir em justiça; Para que o homem de Deus seja perfeito, e perfeitamente instruído para toda a boa obra." (2 Timóteo 3:14-17).

Como podes ver, a tua tese do analfabetismo não se coaduna com o ensino das Escrituras. Desde sempre o povo de Deus ensinou os seus filhos a ler nas Escrituras. Mas, adiante: Timóteo foi um dos primeiros cristãos da segunda geração; ele tornou-se cristão, não em virtude de um evangelista ter pregado um sermão poderoso, mas porque a sua mãe e a sua avó lhe ensinaram as Escrituras Sagradas (não as tradições) quando era ainda uma criança. Para Timóteo, as "sagradas letras" eram os livros do AT _ de Génesis a Malaquias. Todo o AT é importante porque aponta para Jesus Cristo e, é a fé em Cristo que torna toda a Bíblia inteligível.

A Bíblia não é uma colecção de histórias, fábulas, mitos ou ideias humanas a respeito de Deus. Não é um livro humano. A Bíblia é a Palavra de Deus. Através do Espírito Santo, Deus revelou a Sua pessoa e o Seu plano para certos crentes, os quais escreveram a Sua mensagem para o seu povo Como nos diz Pedro: "Sabendo primeiramente isto: que nenhuma profecia da Escritura é de particular interpretação. Porque a profecia nunca foi produzida por vontade de homem algum, mas os homens santos de Deus falaram inspirados pelo Espírito Santo." (2 Pedro 1:20-21).

A Escrituta é completamente fidedigna porque Deus estava no controle de tudo o que estava a ser escrito. As suas palavras têm toda a autoridade sobre a nossa vida e fé. A Bíblia foi escrita por homens sob completa orientação e inspiração de Deus. Ela é a Palavra de Deus inspirada. Por ser inspirada e fidedigna, devemos lê-la e aplicá-la à nossa vida. A Bíblia é o nosso padrão para testar tudo o que é declarado como sendo verdade por toda e qualquer instituição religiosa. Ela é a protecção dos cristãos contra os falsos ensinos e a fonte de direcção para o nosso modo de viver. É a nossa única fonte de conhecimento sobre como podemos ser salvos. Devemos zelar pela verdade da Escritura e nunca esquecer o seu propósito _ equipar-nos a fazer o bem. Logo, ela á a coluna vertebral da Igreja, cujo Cabeça é Cristo.

Quanto à igreja da qual Timóteo fala, repito: é a Igreja de Cristo, não uma denominação. Não sei se sabes, mas quando Paulo recebeu esta carta, a igreja de Roma era apenas mais uma igreja e a igreja que então poderíamos chamar de "mãe" era a de Jerusalém, a primeira a ser fundada.

Além disso, a ICAR que hoje conhecemos, nada tem a ver com aquilo que a Bíblia chama "igreja de Cristo", bem pelo contrário. No conceito bíblico, a igreja de Cristo é formada por todos os indivíduos que viveram antes e depois de Jesus Cristo. Os que viveram depois, foram salvos pela fé no Seu sangue derramado na cruz, e os que vieram antes foram salvos pela fé no sangue que havia de ser vertido e que era prefigurado no sacrifício de animais inocentes. Uns e outros formam a assembleia ou igreja que Jesus edifica ou forma. Só Ele poderia ser o Construtor, porque só Ele verteu sangue salvador, e a igreja é a congregação dos que foram, são e serão salvos por este sangue.

A Igreja é de Cristo, não de Roma e, o Cabeça da igreja de Cristo é o próprio Senhor Jesus, não o papa.

REZAR PELOS MORTOS. É BÍBLICO?







Não! Rezar pelos mortos é uma doutrina criada pela ICAR no ano 360 d.C.

Talvez porque não havia na Bíblia nada que desse respaldo a esta prática pagã, em 1546, no concílio de Trento, a ICAR acrescentou o livro de Tobias às Escrituras.

Como nunca me deixei guiar pelo ouvido, decidi ler os apócrifos. Isso mesmo. Tenho uma Bíblia Católica aqui à minha frente e comecei por ler Tobias. É incrível a cegueira de tantos milhões guiados por lendas, romances ou novelas.

Como é que alguém, no seu juízo perfeito, pode ignorar todo o ensino da Palavra de Deus e ser conduzido por um livro que "não conta uma história real" e que é uma "espécie e romance ou novela, destinado a transmitir ensinamento"?

Vejam o que é que a Bíblia católica diz acerca da credibilidade do livro de Tobias:

"O livro de Tobias foi escrito cerca do ano 200 a.C.. Apesar das aparências, não conta uma história real, pois os acontecimentos nele descritos dificilmente se enquadram na História desse período. O livro pertence ao género sapiencial e é uma espécie de romance ou novela, destinado a transmitir um ensinamento. ... A finalidade do livro, portanto, é ensinar. Destaca-se, entre outras coisas, a descoberta da providência divina na vida quotidiana (arcanjo Rafael), a fidelidade à vontade de Deus (Lei), a prática da esmola, o amor aos pais, a oração e o jejum, a integridade do matrimónio e o respeito pelos mortos. O autor mostra, sobretudo, que o homem justo não vive sozinho: está sempre acompanhado e protegido por Deus." (Bíblia Sagrada, Edição Pastoral, 1993)

A grande finalidade do livro de Tobias é respaldar a doutrina da reza pelos mortos. Ponto.

Outra finalidade é aligeirar a verdade acerca da mentira. Como é possível que alguém que conhece o carácter de Deus acredite que um anjo enviado por Ele possa mentir conforme lemos: "Apenas saíra, Tobias encontrou um jovem de belo aspecto, equipado como para uma viagem. Sem saber que se tratava de um anjo de Deus, ele (Tobias) o saudou e disse-lhe: De onde és tu, ó bom jovem? ... Tobit então perguntou-lhe: Rogo-te que me digas de que família e de que tribo és tu? Rafael respondeu: Que é que procuras: a raça do servo, ou o próprio servo para acompanhar teu filho? Mas, para tranqüilizar-te: eu sou Azarias, filho do grande Ananias."

Ao contrário dos livros acrescentados à Palavra de Deus, o Deus que inspirou a Palavra sempre abominou a mentira: "Os lábios mentirosos são abomináveis ao Senhor, ..." (Provérbios 12:22)

Jesus esclareceu-nos a identidade de quem usa a mentira e disse quem é o pai dela: "Vós tendes por pai ao diabo, e quereis satisfazer os desejos de vosso pai. Ele foi homicida desde o princípio, e não se firmou na verdade, porque não há verdade nele. Quando ele profere mentira, fala do que lhe é próprio, porque é mentiroso, e pai da mentira." (João 8:44)

O Diabo também é o pai da bruxaria. Já o anjo mentiroso, Rafael, ensina Tobias a fazer bruxaria ensinando-lhe algo como isto: "O anjo disse-lhe: Pega-o pelas guelras e puxa-o para ti. Tobias assim o fez. Arrastou o peixe para a terra, o qual se pôs a saltar aos seus pés. O anjo então disse-lhe: Abre-o, e guarda o coração, o fel e o fígado, que servirão para remédios muito eficazes. Ele assim o fez. ... Entretanto, Tobias interrogou Rafael: Azarias, meu irmão, peço-te que me digas qual é a virtude curativa dessas partes do peixe que me mandaste guardar. O anjo respondeu-lhe: Se puseres um pedaço do coração sobre brasas, a sua fumaça expulsará toda espécie de mau espírito, tanto do homem como da mulher, e impedirá que ele volte de novo a eles. Quanto ao fel, pode-se fazer com ele um ungüento para os olhos que têm uma belida, porque ele tem a propriedade de curar." (Tobias 6:4-5; 7-9). Se isto não são práticas de bruxaria, são o quê?

No capítulo 12, temos outro ensino do anjo mentiroso, completamente alheio às Escrituras: "porque a esmola livra da morte: ela apaga os pecados e faz encontrar a misericórdia e a vida eterna;" (Tobias 12:9)

O anjo mentiroso ensina a salvação pelas obras. Em toda a Escritura percebemos que só o sangue derramado (no AT o sangue dos animais sacrificados e no NT o sangue derramado por Cristo na cruz do Calvário que acabou com todos os sacrifícios antes requeridos), pode apagar os nossos pecados. E que só a fé no Único Senhor e Salvador nos livra da morte, dando-nos, na sua imensa misericórdia a vida eterna!"

Também lemos na Escritura que, o único mandamento com promessa é este: "Honra a teu pai e a tua mãe, para que se prolonguem os teus dias na terra que o Senhor teu Deus te dá." (Êxodo 20:12). Este ensino é confirmado no NT: "Honra a teu pai e a tua mãe, que é o primeiro mandamento com promessa;" (Efésios 6:2).

O anjo mentiroso acaba a conversa dizendo: "Quando tu oravas com lágrimas e enterravas os mortos, quando deixavas a tua refeição e ias ocultar os mortos em tua casa durante o dia, para sepultá-los quando viesse a noite, eu apresentava as tuas orações ao Senhor. ... Eu sou o anjo Rafael, um dos sete que assistimos na presença do Senhor." (Tobias 12:12).

Onde é que, em toda a Escritura, é dito que são sete os anjos que assistem na presença de Deus? Onde é que, na Bíblia, é dito que são eles que apresentam as nossas orações a Deus? Será o que deus de Tobias não estava capacitado para ouvir as orações do Seu povo? Em todo o AT, vemos os profetas a interceder pelo povo, nunca os anjos. E já agora... quantas vezes é que este anjo mentiroso é mencionado na Bíblia? Sem ser num livro apócrifo, claro.

Perante tudo isto, a única conclusão que podemos tirar é que o ensino da reza pelos mortos foi aprovado por um anjo mentiroso, num livro que não passa de uma "espécie e romance ou novela". Ou seja:

Os católicos acreditam em qualquer história da carochinha que o clero lhes impinja. Ponto.

Que nossos Amigos Católicos encontrem a verdade como tantos outros encontraram, viva para a igreja não para a Religião.

Louvar a Deus pode trazer bençãos pessoais!

As imagens abaixo foram extraídas do livro que estou tendo o imenso prazer de ler, chamado: "Se Deus já sabe, porque orar?" de Douglas Kelly - Editora Cultura Cristã.

Em um trecho do livro, Douglas demonstra que Deus é digno do nosso louvor, e que este louvor, quando é de todo coração, pode sim nos dar bençãos pessoais. Mas como louvar a Deus de todo coração, de forma correta, sem emocionalismo, inércia ou ensaios, louvor que possa fluir do mais íntimo do nosso ser? 

Douglas Kelly dá-nos a ideia de que podemos pegar um texto bíblico (o salmo 103 é um maravilhoso auxílio ao louvor, porque não traz sequer um único pedido!), lê-lo atentamente, e então usar suas palavras e frases para dizer ao Senhor de nosso amor e adoração. Podemos dizer: "Amém" ao que foi lido, repeti-lo com nossas próprias palavras, ou ir além e usar a Bíblia como trampolim para nossas próprias expressões de louvor.



A Olaria de Jeremias 18

Jer 18:2 - "Levanta-te, e desce à casa do oleiro, e lá te farei ouvir as minhas palavras. "
Interessante, esta ordem de Deus. O profeta não se limita ir à casa do Oleiro.
A ordem, implícita é a de sair do sitio de onde está. 
Sai do templo, da cidade, e vai à casa do Oleiro.
Ele foi "chamado para fora"...

E porque é que a casa do Oleiro é fora da cidade?
Simplesmente porque é aí que está o barro e a lama.
O Criador, está onde está a criação, e especialmente, o material a ser usado para criar.
Deus podia perfeitamente ter chamado o oleiro ao local sagrado, à presença do grande profeta.
Mas quando se serve a Deus, o que realmente "serve", desce.

Obedece, descendo. 
(muitos há que acham que aqueles que para servir têem de se tornar maiores, pastores, apóstolos, bispos etc, mas a realidade no Reino de Deus, é que, é para baixo que se sobe)

Vai ao encontro daquele que lhe pode até parecer menor, mas que na realidade é seu semelhante.
O oleiro não procura o conforto e a segurança da cidade.
O oleiro não procura a riqueza nem as luzes da cidade.
O oleiro não procura uma posição mais elevada. (Filipenses 2:6)
O profeta, precisa de descer, porque o oleiro desceu primeiro, e se estabeleceu antes dele.
Enquanto o povo subia a Jerusalém, onde estava o templo, o profeta, para se encontrar com o oleiro, teve de descer e sair de Jerusalém.
Já o Oleiro, desceu do seu templo, a Jerusalém celestial, para habitar entre o barro, fazendo-se barro, mas barro inteiramente limpo.
O profeta sabe onde é a casa do oleiro, mas o oleiro sabe onde é a «casa» do barro.
O profeta estava no templo, mas o oleiro, está onde está o barro.

Jer 18:3 - "E desci à casa do oleiro, e eis que ele estava fazendo a sua obra sobre as rodas"
O profeta obedeceu. 
E quando o fez, pode contemplar não só o Oleiro, como a criação deste.
O que o profeta não pôde ver, foi o processo que levou o barro, do lamaçal à roda.
É que o Oleiro, não se limita a ir buscar o barro a uma prateleira do supermercado.
Não! O Oleiro, não só sabe onde está o barro, como vai ter com ele.
Pode parecer um preciosismo, mas muitas vezes achamos que é o barro que vai de encontro ao Oleiro...
O Oleiro sabe que o barro está no meio de lama. 
No meio de raízes. No meio de pedras.
Tapado por folhas. Misturado com animais mortos.
O oleiro, não se importa. Ele sabe que o barro está lá.
E sabe como o ir buscar.

Mas o Oleiro não trabalha sozinho. Antes, espera pelo tempo certo.
No tempo certo, após a chuva. A água vai à frente dele.
A Água prepara o barro, para se encontrar com o Oleiro.
Quando chove, penetra, amacia, para que quando o Oleiro chegue, este o recolha.
E é o Oleiro que escolhe o barro...
É o Oleiro, que o tira da imundícia e o transporta para o Reino do seu Amor.
Logo ali, o Oleiro tira as pedras maiores.
Destapa-o das folhas. corta as raízes, e limpa-o da morte.
O barro, ainda nem barro (de roda ou de trabalho) é.
Mas a sua condição, não é mais a mesma.

Quando o barro chega à olaria, da-se a segunda parte do processo.
Este é baptizado em tinas de água, até estar limpo de todas as grandes peças que ainda trouxe com ele.
E descansa. Sim, tanto o barro, como o Oleiro descansam.
Depois de limpo, o barro é tirado da tina e levado para a mesa.
O Oleiro, desde que o barro tenha Água, pode limpa-lo.
Esta parte do processo, faz-se amassando o barro com as mãos.
Tirando cada pedra que encontra, cada pedaço que o impede de cumprir o seu propósito.
Pode parecer que o barro está a levar uma sova, ou a sofrer no processo.
Mas, acreditem, o oleiro, por muito experiente que seja, sofre.
Sofre porque o barro é gelado. A dor de amassar o barro vai até aos ossos.
Por muito calo que as mãos do oleiro tenham, o frio trespassa e magoa.

Sempre que o barro precisa de descansar, o Oleiro não o deixa sozinho.
Fica enrolado num pano, com Água.
Assim, o barro está sempre a ser trabalhado.
Ou pelas mãos do Oleiro. Ou pela acção da Água.
Há, nesta fase, algo de novo.
Para quem olha de fora, o barro está pronto.
Está limpo, foi amassado, tem a humidade certa.
Mas o Criador, sabe mais e melhor. 
Ele conhece o interior do barro. Porque trabalhou nele.
E aqui, o barro é amassado, mas não da mesma forma.
O oleiro, muda a forma de amassar o barro.
Para encontrar as pedras mais pequenas, deixa de usar a palma das mãos calejadas.
Passa a usar as partes mais frágeis das mãos. 
Os nós dos dedos e a parte interior dos pulsos.
A cada passagem, uma camada fina de barro é levada para o fundo e uma nova zona do barro se expõe.
Estes movimentos são rápidos e firmes.
Assim, a cada encontro com um grão de areia, ocorre invariavelmente uma de duas coisas, e muitas vezes ambas.
Ou a pedra deixa um rasto no barro, ou faz o Oleiro sangrar, deixando um rasto de sangue no barro. Ambas permitem identificar a pedra para que seja removida.

Seja como for, o barro não está purificado, até que o oleiro sangre.
Não há um pedaço de barro limpo, que não tenha sangue do Oleiro.

O Sangue do Oleiro é o garante do barro.

Só após o sangue do Oleiro, ser derramado e vertido pelo barro e no barro, é que o este está pronto ser algo.
Seja qual fôr o destino do barro, a roda, a placa, ou a arte. No processo final, o que conta é se o barro está purificado.
O profeta viu o barro na roda. Mas não viu como lá chegou.
Para o barro ser trabalhado na roda, não basta pousa-lo lá.
A roda tem de estar molhada.
O barro tem de ter a quantidade certa de Água.
E o barro, atirado contra a roda, só fica no sitio, só está pronto para ser trabalhado, se estiver no centro da roda.
Se por acaso o barro tiver ficado fora do centro da vontade do Oleiro, quando a roda girar, o barro vai sair disparado.
Só depois de estar no sitio certo, é que as peças podem ser criadas.

Jer 18:4 - "Como o vaso, que ele fazia de barro, quebrou-se na mão do oleiro, tornou a fazer dele outro vaso, conforme o que pareceu bem aos olhos do oleiro fazer."
O barro a girar na roda, impulsionada pelo Oleiro, vai dando fruto conforme a vontade do Criador.
Por vezes, o barro seca, ou desvia-se do centro da roda. 
Aí a peça em construção parte-se, mas o Oleiro, não deita fora o barro.
A roda não pára, junta-se água ao barro, e ali mesmo, o barro quebrado volta ao monte de onde saiu.
O Oleiro re-inicia o processo e faz a peça de novo.
No pleno exercício da Sua vontade.
O Oleiro não deita fora o barro. Tal como Deus não apaga um morrão que ainda fumega, ou quebra uma cana rachada, 
O Oleiro não desiste da sua criação. NUNCA.
O Oleiro pega no barro caído, e transforma-o. Renova-o.
Mesmo que por acaso, o Oleiro coloque um pedaço de barro ali ao lado,
Não é para deitar fora. O Oleiro não deita barro fora.
Trabalha-o e, moldando-o, e cola-o ao corpo principal com Água.
O Oleiro nunca trabalha sem Água.
Molda-o com as suas mãos, e também com ferramentas, que ele mesmo faz.
Canas, pedras, outros pedaços de barro.
Até do pó de barro seco, morto, Ele, juntando Água, vivifica e torna útil.
Quando termina, o Oleiro com fio separa a peça do molho principal e deixa-a repousar.
Até o momento em que há-de passar pelo fogo.
As peças que guardem para si pedras do passado, ar da sua jactância, ou água que não a do Oleiro, sucumbirão no fogo.
No fim. O Barro não tem o mérito de ter resultado numa peça bonita.
A arte, é do Oleiro.
O trabalho, também.
O mérito, idem.
Soli Deo Glória.
