This is the (free) first part of Dr. R.C.Sproul’s teaching series titled ‘”The Life of Jesus” . The other 3 parts are available for download here at www.ligonier.org

R.C.Sproul:

On the subject of Christology there is a difference between the person of Jesus and the work of Jesus. Who He is. What He did. …we understand that who Jesus was and is, had considerable influence on what it was He did. And by the same token, if we want to understand who He was, we have to look at what He did. So, even though we may distinguish the two, they must ultimately be held in unity.

Glory to God!!!

  • Psalm 8:1 – A Psalm of David. O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens.

  • Philippians 2:9-11 – Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
  • Romans 3L23 – For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
  • Colossians 1:27 – To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
  • John 11:40 – Jesus said to her, “Did I not tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of God?”

The Names of Jesus

Names of Jesus

from James MacDonald’s sermon December,2011 at Harvest Bible Chapel.via his radio ministry Walk in the Word.

Jesus’s names are most important of all.

Isaiah 9:6 …and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor…

His name shall be called….His name is the most important name…You know you learn so much about someone from their name.

When the Bible tries to describe to us Jesus Christ and who He is and what He is like, it uses names. He has many, many, many names to communicate many things about the manifold nature of His incredible, awesome character.

Let me just read through some of these for you, and just listen and just let them wash over you:

The Bible calls Jesus: Alpha and Omega, Ancient of Days, Anointed One, Bread of Life, Bridegroom, Bright and Morning Star, Brightness of His Glory, Christ, daystar to Arise, Emmanuel, I Am, of course Jesus, Lamb of God, Lily of the Valley, Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Lord of Lords, Light, Mighty God, Morning Star, Holy One of Israel, Good Shepherd, Resurrection and Life, Rose of Sharon, Shepherd, Son of God, son of man, Son of Righteousness, Wonderful Counselor, Prince of Peace and Worthy.

All of these names are statements about Jesus Christ and who He is. You can learn so much about the Savior just by undertaking a study of His name. And so, when the Scripture says “His name shall be called “, that’s the Almighty God designating, “These are the things I want you to know about the Savior, Jesus Christ!”

In fact, in the New Testament the entire drama of the beginning of the church of Jesus Christ… our spiritual descendants, our spiritual parents back how many centuries?… the battle was raging around the subject of His name. From the Book of Acts we learn that they were saved in His name.

  1. And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no othername under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12.
  2. They were baptized in His name. Acts 2:38 Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins.
  3. They were healed in His name. Acts 3:6. Peter said, “I have no silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!”
  4. They suffered in His name. Acts 5:40 and when they had called in the apostles, they beat them and charged them not to speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. Then they left the presence of the counsel and rejoiced that they were counted worthy to suffer for the name.
  5. Dying for the name Acts 21:13 Then Paul answered, “What are you doing, weeping and breaking my heart? For I am ready not only to be imprisoned but even to die in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.”

WOW. Jesus’s names. Names are important. Jesus’s names are the most important of all.

Colinde Romanesti 2 – Nicaieri nu-i ca acasa

PAGINA cu COLINDE click aici.

Este estimat (in Wikipedia) ca sunt aproximativ 8 milioane de Romani in diaspora (in afara Romaniei si a Moldovei). Fiecare ne-am nascut in neamul in care Dumnezeu ne-a rinduit. Sarbatorile de Craciun, cind serbam Nasterea Mintuitorului nostru si intruchiparea Lui pe acest pamint, devin citeodata melancolice pentru ca avem tendinta sa ne oprim din fuga noastra ca sa reflectam asupra trecutului nostru si a vietii noastre, care este descrisa de apostolul Pavel  fiind ‘un abur‘ in Iacob 4:14: Totuși, nu știți nici măcar ce va aduce ziua de mâine! Ce este viața voastră? Sunteți un abur, care apare pentru puțin, apoi dispare! Ni-e dor de locul unde ne-am nascut si unde am copilarit, iar altii poate si-au petrecut jumatate din viata lor. Bisericile in care uni ne-am botezat, si casatorit, unde am avut prieteni buni….Este normal sa ne fie dor,  dar sa nu uitam, ca credinciosi care suntem mintuiti prin Isus Hristos:

  1. Patriarhii (Avram,Iacov, etc) au stiut ca sunt doar calatori aici – Evrei 11:13-16 -13 Toți aceștia au murit crezând, fără să primească lucrurile promise; le-au văzut doar de departe și le-au salutat – și au mărturisit că sunt străini și că locuiesc numai temporar pe pământ. 14 Cei care vorbesc în acest fel arată că sunt în căutarea unei patrii. 15 Dacă ei s-ar fi gândit la țara din care au plecat, ar fi avut ocazia să se întoarcă în ea,  16 însă ei aspirau după o țară mai bună, adică una cerească. De aceea, lui Dumnezeu nu-I este rușine să fie numit Dumnezeul lor, pentru că El a pregătit o cetate pentru ei.
  2. Si noi suntem straini in aceasta tara si lume- 1 Petru 1:17 – trăiți în reverență atâta vreme cât locuiți ca străini, si 1 Petru 2:11 – Iubiților, vă îndemn – ca pe niște străini și locuitori temporari – să fugiți de poftele naturii păcătoase care se luptă împotriva sufletului!
  3. Cetatenia noastra finala este in cer – Filipeni 3:20 Locul cetățeniei noastre este în cer, de unde Îl și așteptăm pe Salvatorul nostru: Domnul Isus Cristos. Efeseni 2:19 – 19 Așadar, acum nu mai sunteți străini și oameni care locuiesc în altă parte, ci sunteți cetățeni împreună cu sfinții și membri ai familiei lui Dumnezeu.

Colinde frumoase cu care sa ne mai amintim de tara noastra Romaneasca, si sa ne rugam ca Dumnezeu sa lucreze la inima oamenilor ca sa Il cunoasca pe El-

  4. Checkout and “Download Now”

You can also download the book in pdf form here – Download When I Don’t Desire God (PDF).

From the book cover:

For over thirty years, John Piper has been trumpeting the truth that “God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him.” He calls it Christian Hedonism.

The problem is that many people, after being persuaded, find out that this truth is both liberating and devastating. It’s liberating because it endorses our inborn desire for joy. And it’s devastating because it reveals that we don’t desire God the way we should.

When you discover the biblical truth that God commands our happiness in him, the absolutely urgent question becomes: What can I do if I don’t have it?With the heart of a pastor and with radical passion for the glory of Christ, John Piper wants to help you answer that question.

Peace on earth? Not until Christ returns…unless you are a Christ follower

Jesus Christ is the Prince of Peace !

Isaiah calls Jesus Christ the Prince of Peace in Isaiah 9:6 – For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

While Luke tells us that the angels proclaimed peace on earth amongst the peoples whom God is pleased with:

Christians can have peace through Christ !

  •  Luke 2:14 “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”.
  • Also inRomans 5:1 the apostle Paul states: Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Also in John 16:33 Jesus states: I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
  •  And in Philippians 4:6-7 -And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
  • In John 14:27  Jesus states: Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you

But, His kingdom is not of this world…

Yet, in John 18:36 the apostle John writes: Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world.” and Isaiah refers in 2 different verses to the time of peace when Jesus will reign as King over the earth.

  • Isaiah 11:6 -The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
  • Isaiah 65:25 – The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent’s meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.

…so, without Christ, the world cannot / will not have peace !

While Christians around the world get ready to celebrate the birth of the Saviour, here’s a brief, yet important example of a life well lived (to the end) that is Christ-honoring, an example from a man named Juma Nuradin Kamil.

  1. Persecution- Romans 8:35-39

    Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written,

    “For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
    we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”

    No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

  2. Perseverance - 1 Corinthians 16:13
    Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong.

SOMALIA

2 Thessalonians 1:4

Therefore, among God’s churches we boast about your perseverance and faith in all the persecutions and trials you are enduring.

Pray for the country of Somalia, a country that is predominantly Muslim (99.67 %) and a profession of faith in Christ is punished by death (decapitation). According to Voice of the Martyrs, there are only about 4,000 Christians in Somalia in a population of 9.9 million people, so you can understand what a tiny minority the Christians are and therefore very vulnerable to persecution. Here is a story of a faithful man, who persevered unto the death, death by decapitation – Juma Nuradin Kamil. He rightly understood what the Apostle Paul meant in

Philippians 1:21

For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.

Matthew 16:26

For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?

The following is the report published at Voice of the Martyrs:

Christian convert beheaded

A kidnapped Christian convert from Islam was found decapitated on September 2 on the outskirts of Hudur in Bakool region, in south-western Somalia. Juma Nuradin Kamil, who embraced Christianity about three years ago, was kidnapped on August 21 by three suspected Islamic extremists from the al Shabaab terrorist group. Muslim extremists from al Shabaab, a militant group with ties to al Qaeda, have vowed to rid Somalia of Christianity.

Sources believe the kidnapping and subsequent manner of murder suggest that al Shabaab militants had been monitoring him. “It is usual for the al Shabaab to decapitate those they suspect to have embraced the Christian faith, or sympathisers of western ideals,” a Christian leader said. “Our brother … was determined in his faith in God. We greatly miss him.”

Pray for Juma’s family and the grieving Christian community. May they rest in the knowledge that the Good Shepherd walks with them through this difficult time. Ask the Lord to protect believers in Somalia and deliver them from harm. Pray that the perpetrators will repent and turn to Jesus Christ.

For more on our suffering brothers and sisters in Somalia, go to the Somalia Country Report.

Christmas Mystery – a poem

Christmas Mystery

He who forged Earth’s iron core
And scattered stars to distant skies
Came shattered beauty to restore
And answer lost ones’ mournful cries.
A God who stands among the weak
To lift each burden that they face,
To lift away their bondage bleak
And give them strength in holy grace.

The star of hope for all the years,
Though spoken of through ages past,
Lies born in dust and blood and tears
Without His glorious trumpets’ blast.
Yet in His tiny hand He holds
The power that built the mountains high.
His glory shatters earthly molds
As angels’ voices split the sky.

The angel heralds call out clear
To tell us of the infant King
Who comes to crush the power of fear
And let the notes of justice ring.
Yet first He comes to serve and die,
Not yet to take His rightful place,
That those who chose to crucify
Their King might still receive His grace.

He calls us now with signs and stars
To find the Child born a King,
To give Him all that once was ours,
And songs of love and praise to sing.
So as we journey through the night
And seek our true Desire’s star
We find that Jesus, through His might
Has sought us from our exile far.

Din inepuizabila “materie primă” a Sfintelor Scripturi, C. Ioanid alege, potrivit structurii sale poetice – spirit predestenat pentru disecţie şi meditaţie – texte îmbibate de simbolisme şi bogate în semni­ficaţii spre a ne ofed, în final tabloul Aceluia pe care ni-L prezintă, mai întâi în detaliu: Dumnezeul-Om, Dumnezeul prieten, Dumnezeul-stâncă, îngerul Domnului, Căpetenia oştirii Domnului. Christos Domnul ne apare când în “rugul aprins” care arde sub privirile uimite ale viitorului conducător şi legiuitor Moise, fie în “susurul blând şi subţire” care revigorează sufletul descurajat al marelui profet Ilie, aflat la un moment de cotitură în istoria neamu­lui său.”

POEZII DE CRĂCIUN

DORMI, COPILE

Dormi, Copile Rege,
Domn şi rob sub Lege,
Slugă fără plată,
Prunc la piept şi Tată.

Dormi, Odraslă mică,
maica Ta Ti-e fiică.
Dormi uşor la sîn,
Roadă şi Stăpîn.

Dormi uşor, Copile troenit de zile,
Inger de departe, Preot fără moarte.

Tu vii din Lumină,eu, de jos, din tină.
Tu, din Raiul sfînt,eu, de pe pămînt.

Dormi, Copil de taină,bogat fără haină,
Păstor fără stînă,Logos în ţărînă.

Mama Iţi dă hrană,Tu îi dai coroană.
Mama-Ţi dă alin,Tu-i dai chip divin.

“Dormi, Copil Durere,Miel pentru junghere.
Eu te cresc spre cruce,Tu, spre cerul dulce.

Eu te cresc să sîngeri,Tu mă creşti spre îngeri.
Maică Ţie-s eu,Tu mi-eşti Dumnezeu!”

                            O, CE PRUNC ClUDAT!

O, ce Prunc, ce Prunc ciudat
s-a născut In Canaan,
într-un staul, pe-un suman !
Unii spun că-i un sărman.
Alţii spun că-i lmpărat.
Unii spun că-i un viclean.
Altii spun că-i minunat !

O, ce Prunc, ce Prunc de soare
s-a născut în Betleem,
între vite care gem !
Unii văd în El blestem.
Alţii văd în El salvare.
Unii văd un trist poem.
Alţii văd un rai în floare.

O, ce Prunc în două chipuri.Unii-l scad şi alţii-l cresc,
Unii rîd şi mulţi suspină.Unii spun că-i prea de tină.
Alţii spun că-i prea ceresc.Unii spun: prea grea doctrină.
Eu … spun numai: îl iubesc…

IN SEARA DE AJUN

A venit la mine mama
şi mi-a spus c-un zîmbet bun:
– Puiule, stai treaz, ia seama,
şi ascultă toată gama
cîntecelor de Crăciun!

Clătinînd apoi fereastra,
vîntul mi-a şoptit uşor:
– Puiule, în noaptea asta
îşi despică norii creasta
şi vin îngerii în sbor…

Iar o vrabie măruntă ciripi de pe pervaz:
– Puiule, stai treaz şi-ascultă…Ia auzi… ce oaste multă!…
Nu dormi!… Auzi? Stai treaz!…

Am răspuns la toate: Bine.Şi… am adormit in pat…
………………………..
Iar tîrziu, din zări senine,a venit Isus la mine
şi, zîmbind, m-a sărutat.

NAŞTEREA LUI ISUS

Isus se naşte ! Şi lumina
pătrunde-n sufletele noastre.
Şi steaua tainei străluceşte
deasupra celorlalte astre.
Cu magii azi ne închinăm,
şi noi, cu sufletul mergînd,
o bucurie fără seamăn
simţim în inimă şi-n gînd!

Azi patimile se răpun
de-o putere preaînaltă!
Azi omul, lumintndu-şi gîndul,
spre cer cu inima tresaltă!
Nădejdile se nasc în suflet. Credinţa tainic reînvie,
căci harul sfînt acum coboară în viaţa stearpă şi pustie.

Şi orice suflet care simte că-n el răsare-o viaţă nouă,
e ca un crin ce în petale adună stropi curaţi de rouă!
Şi orice inimă ce poartă oglinda cerului în ea,
pentru ISUS născut în iesle, azi lumineazi; ca o stea!

Se nimiceşte tot păcatul sub raza sfîntă a iubirii …
Azi, se deschide pentru suflet, spre cer, un drum al mîntuirii!
Cu haina albă a virtuţii tot omul poate să se-mbrace,
căci sfînta naştere aduce în inimi linişte şi pace!
