  • alin jivanAlin Jivan despre mama sa, care a dat nastere la 14 copii:Am avut momente foarte frumoase in copilarie, dar am avut momente nu prea frumoase, care mi-au afectat starea de spirit. Momente care m-au facut sa ma indrept spre alte directii in viata, momente care mi-au innecat visele frumoase (de a creste si a fi un predicator penticostal inflacarat). Daca visam candva sa fiu predicator, ganditi-va cum a lucrat cel rau, ca nu in scurt timp am visat ca o sa ma razbun pe tatal meu.

    In anii ’90, exact dupa ce cadea regimul comunist si noi strigam ca ‘exista Dumnezeu’ pentru ca l-am omorat pe Ceausescu, tatal meu m-a luat de mana si mi-a zis, „Ia uite la copilul asta, vine de la biserica, fraii lui se uita la casete video cu nu stiu ce batausi. El ia caietul de cantari a mamei si canta despre Dumnezeu”. Tatal meu, care deja avea o experienta, zic eu- bogata in lume, in societate, in viata, a zis, ” Pai, tu esti foarte sensibil. Tu crezi ca o sa mergi in lume cu caietul acesta a mamei tale si o sa reusesti sa ai izbanda? Stai linistit, ca o sa dea lumea cu tine de pamant. Tu trebuie sa fi un om puetrnic. Tu trebuie sa stii cum sa-i conduci pe altii. Tu v-a trebui sa fi un bun sportiv de performanta. Ca niciodata nu o sa castigi cu atitudinea mamei tale. Niciodata nu ai sa castigi, in lumea asta, cu o atitudine de om umil.”

    „Uita-te la mama ta,” zicea el, „E credincioasa lui Dumnezeu si majoritatea timpului sta prin spitale”. Uneori, parca ii doream sa il mai doara capul pe tatal meu. Vedeam ca nu are nici o durere, nici macar durere de masea si mama, care era credincioasa, majoritatea timpului l-a petrecut prin spital. In 2001, doctorii au trebuit sa-i spuna ca are cancer si va muri in sase luni. S-a dus in America, s-au rugat oamenii pentru ea. Au trecut 11 ani si nici urma de cancer. Slavit sa fie Dumnezeu!

    Dumnezeu n-a lasat-o sa isi finalizeze viata asa, trista, vazand ca in urma ei nu vine nimeni. Dumnezeu i-a mai dat zile sa vada ca familia ei e sortita cerului si nu esecului si nu mortii si nu infernului. Astazi mama mea traieste momente extraordinare de frumoase. Nu prea mai vreau sa vorbesc urat despre tatal meu, pentru ca tata meu este un om extraordinar acum. A invatat la 60 de ani ca trebuie sa-si ia sotia de mana si sa mearga de mana cu ea. Nu l-am vazut asa in viata mea. Avem un Dumnezeu care (scuzati-ma de expresia aceasta, poate nu e buna in biserica) ne invata sa fim si romantici. (Inainte) Tatal meu niciodata nu si-a exteriorizat sentimentele, mama niciodata nu a simtit iubirea lui… asculta mai departe…

Cătălin Şireagu – Sfaturi Pentru Familişti si Interviu cu Radu Muresan la Radio Vocea Evangheliei

Catalin Sireagu

Radu Muresanu realizeaza un interviu cu Cătălin  Şireagu, nascut la Câmpia Turzii, Jud. Cluj, unde a crescut si a absolvit Liceul de Chimie. La timpul interviului, Cătălin era student la Universitatea Babeş-Bolyai, Cluj-Napoca. De cand a fost pe bancile liceului a fost confruntat de una dintre cele mai mari provocari din viata lui. In fata unei doamne profesoare de limba Româna, Catalin a trebuit sa-si marturiseasca credinta si sa aduca dovada existentei lui Dumnezeu. Chiar daca diferenta de varsta si statut social se pare un handicap pentru tanarul liceean, el a fost totusi sprijinit de Dumnezeu, care avea un plan deosebit, adica mantuirea acelei profesoare, intoarcerea ei la Domnul Isus Hristos.

Sfaturi Pentru Familişti

Mesajul incepe la minutul 6 (durata 30 min). Cateva cuvinte din introducere:

Am constatat ca in ultima vreme, perioada aceasta grea din punct de vedere spiritual pe care o parcurgem, nu mai este o legatura stransa intre familie si biserica in ce priveste educatia copiilor, in ce priveste educatia tinerilor, in ce priveste viata de credinta pe care trebuie sa o prezentam copiilor nostri si tinerilor din biserica. Si datorita faptului ca legatura dintre familie si biserica, in ce priveste educatia aceasta spirituala s-a rupt. De cele mai multe ori, lucrurile nu dau rezultatul asteptat. De aceea, cu ajutorul Domnului as vrea sa vorbesc pentru tineri. Dar, in seara aceasta, vrem sa plecam de la nivelul familiei, pentru ca prima celula instaurata de Dumnezeu, prima biserica  in care copii se desvolta si fiind dezvoltati, vor deveni niste tineri sanatosi, sunt familiile noastre.

Sa vedem din scripturi ce ne scrie Dumnezeu noua, parintilor. Care sunt responsabilitatile care trebuie sa ni le asumam. Responsabilitati pe care, daca ni le vom asuma, Dumnezeu in indurarea Sa v-a complecta ceea ce ne lipseste partii pe care am facut-o noi ca si parinti prin biserica. Ca nu este o mai mare bucurie, decat copii pe care Dumnezeu ni-i daruieste, sa fie impreuna cu noi in casa Domnului.

Replica dupa arca lui Noe s-a deschis in Olanda

Foto: chretiencontact.com

Olandezul Johan Huibers a realizat o replică după Arca lui Noe, inspirându-se din Biblie, Geneza 6:9. Arca lui Huibers a ajuns să măsoare 130 de metri în lungime, 29 de metri în lăţime şi 23 de metri în înălţime.

Acesta a fost visul lui Huibers, un vis de 20 de ani, de a educa oamenii despre credinţă şi istorie. A plouat în ziua în care arca a fost deschisă pentru prima dată publicului olandez. Huibers a primit permisiunea să găzduiască până la 3.000 de vizitatori pe zi în arca sa, scrie AP.

În arcă, vizitatorii pot să vadă perechi de animale din pluş şi plastic, şi chiar animale vii, mai puţin periculoase şi uşor de îngrijit, precum ponei, câini, oi, iepuri şi păsări exotice. „Barca asta este absolut uimitoare,” spune un vizitor din Africa de Sud. Arca conţine şi un restaurant la nivelul de sus şi un mic cinematograf pentru 50 de persoane. La nivelul inferior este un sistem de trape, fiecare deshizându-se către o zonă unde ar putea fi ţinută mâncarea pentru perioade mai lungi de timp.
„Detaliile sunt absolut incredibile. S-ar putea să ştii povestea lui Noe, dar când vezi ce e aici, începi să înţelegi cum s-ar fi putut aranja toate aceste lucruri în realitate,” a declarat un alt vizitator.

Huibers ar vrea şi îşi ducă arca şi în alte părţi ale Europei şi chiar peste Atlantic. De asemenea visează să îi convingă pe israelieni şi pe arabi să coopereze şi să contruiască o conductă de apă de la Marea Mediterană până la Marea Moartă. Pentru Huibers „dacă ai credinţă, orice e posibil,” iar arca sa a pornit tot de la un vis. De fapt de la un coşmar, în care părţile joase ale Olandei fuseseră inundate, lucru care s-a mai întâmplat de multe ori în istorie şi s-ar mai putea întâmpla. Dar Huibers nu crede într-un viitor potop, deoarece„ Dumnezeu a promis printr-un curcubeu că nu se va mai întâmpla.” Nici nu a construit arca din cauza apocalipsei maiaşe, aşa cum au sunat să întrebe jurnalişti din Statele Unite.

După ce a visat că țara lui va fi înghițită de ape, olandezul Johan Huibers s-a gândit să construiască o Arcă a lui Noe, informează NBC News.

Proiectul demarat acum 3 ani a fost adus la finalizare și, creatorul spune că arca, probabil, n-ar face faţă unui potop, însă ea a devenit deja un obiectiv turistic.

Olandezul a urmat întocmai instrucțiunile din Biblie în ceea ce priveşte dimensiunile construcției, realizand astfel o arcă avânt o lungime de 300 de coţi, o lăţime de 50 de coţi și o înălţime de 30 de coţi, unde un cot înseamnă aproximativ 0,5 metri. Ca esenţă de lemn a ales cedru şi pin. În plus, Huibers a introdus în arcă animale din plastic, cum ar fi girafe, zebre, elefanţi, lei, crocodili şi bizoni, la dimensiuni reale.

Potrivit ziarului Adevărul, Johan Huibers speră ca arca sa să devină muzeu mobil şi să încurajeze oamenii să citească Biblia. De asemenea, visează să ajungă cu vasul său pe râul Tamisa, la Jocurile Olimpice din 2012.

2012: Boko Haram’s bloodiest year for Nigeria with 12 more killed on Christmas Eve

from mnnonline.com and BBCNews

Boko Haram, a Nigerian militant Islamist group, had their bloodiest year in 2012, responsible for over 750 deaths.

General Aziza, Nigeria’s former national security advisor, says the upscale in Boko Haram’s terrorist attacks may be linked with the upcoming 2015 Nigerian presidential elections.

When President Goodluck Jonathan, a Christian, was elected president of Nigeria in 2011, a series of Boko Haram killings followed. Boko Haram made threats on the president to resign or else turn Nigeria into an Islamic nation.

Rae Burnett, the Africa Director for Christian Aid Mission, explains, “I do believe that it’s spiritual warfare, but it’s definitely the desire to see that Islam is the world religion. They start where they are, and these guys are Nigerian, so they want to be empowered in Nigeria.”

Several of the Muslim-majority Northern states began declaring themselves under Sharia law after the 2011 elections. Of the 32 Nigerian states, 12 currently are govern by Islamic Sharia law. 2015 will be Muslims’ next chance to gain power in Nigeria’s political arena.

However, Boko Haram grew quiet on the large-scale attack front earlier this month. The fact that Christmas was approaching—the biggest Christian holiday of the year—wasn’t lost on anyone and created an eerie silence. Attacks were expected, especially since Boko Haram has declared intent to eradicate Christians from Nigeria.

And Boko Haram militants have the means to back up this desire. With ties to Al-Qaeda and funding for weapons, they fight in pockets and avoid any clashes with the Nigerian military. They’ve gotten bolder. According to Burnett, “They do whatever is in front of them. If it’s a school bus, they’ll blow it up. If it’s a school, they’ll blow it up. They’re trying to make people afraid.

Meanwhile, the BBC News reports that just on Christmas eve-

Islamist Gunmen Kill 12 Nigerian Christians

in Christmas Eve Attacks

Gunmen in the northern Nigerian state of Yobe have shot dead at least six Christians, the army and local officials say. They say a church in Peri village near Potiskum, the economic capital of Yobe, was set on fire in an attack late on Christmas Eve.

No group has so far said it carried out the attack.

The Boko Haram Islamist militant group has targeted a number of churches in the north since 2010. It has killed hundreds in its campaign to impose Sharia law. A series of bomb attacks carried out by the group across the country at Christmas 2011 – including two at Christmas Day church services – left almost 40 people dead and many more injured.

‘Savage acts of terrorism’The head of the Network for Justice human rights group, Zakari Adamu, told the BBC that the gunmen also attacked the homes of Christians following the attack during the midnight mass service. Boko Haram carried out a series of attacks on Christians this time last year.

The AFP news agency reported that the pastor of the church – a branch of the Evangelical Church of West Africa (ECWA) – is among the dead.

Military Spokesman Eli Lazarus told the Reuters news agency that six people were killed in the violence, which happened when „unknown gunmen attempted to attack Potiskum but were repelled by troops”. „While they were fleeing, they attacked a church in a village,” he said.

The military say that a suspected gunman has been detained, and security in the area has been stepped up to reassure residents. They could not say how many gunmen took part in the attack or whether they belonged to a particular organisation.

The head of the Christian Association of Nigeria in Yobe, Idi Garba, told AFP that many worshippers at ECWA „are still missing”.

„I have been informed that six bodies have been recovered,” Mr Garba said.

He said that some worshippers who lived near the church „fled their homes during the attack and it is assumed that they are still hiding in the bush”.

Correspondents says that while Yobe’s population is overwhelmingly Muslim, Potiskum has a significant Christian minority. Peri is just 2km (1.24 miles) outside the city. Boko Haram has been able to carry out so many attacks in Yobe because it borders Borno state where the insurgent group is based.

Nigeria is Africa’s most populous state and its biggest oil producer. Most people in the south are Christian, whereas the north has a Muslim majority.

Pray for Christians in Nigeria to persevere and hold fast to their hope in the Lord. Pray for many others in Nigeria to come to know Christ and for church leaders to advance their ministry.

Youcef Nadarkhani Re-Arrested by Iranian Authorities on Christmas Day

Photo form ChristianPost.com from November, 2012, as Pastor Nadarkhani thanked all those who prayed and advocated for his release during Christian Solidarity Worldwide’s National Conference in London, where he was a special guest.

Iranian Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani was taken back to prison on Christmas Day allegedly because of improperly completed paperwork, multiple sources have said, denying him the chance to celebrate the birth of Christ at home with his family.

Persecution watchdog groups Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) and Present Truth Ministries both reported the news, saying that pastor Nadarkhani has had to go back to Lakan Prison in Rasht to serve the remainder of his time in prison, another 40 days, and to complete paperwork that authorities say he had not filled out.

„We are disappointed to hear Pastor Nadarkhani has been returned to prison in such an irregular manner,” said Mervyn Thomas, CSW’s Chief Executive.

„The timing is insensitive and especially sad for his wife and sons, who must have been looking forward to celebrating Christmas with him for the first time in three years. We hope that Pastor Nadarkhani will be released without delay once this alleged sentence has been fully served. We are also asking for prayers for the pastor’s safety, and for his family at this difficult time.”

John Piper on Wife’s Submission to an Abusive Husband

from John Piper at DesiringGod.org and also posted at ChristianPost.com. Read the entire post at DesiringGod.org- CLARIFYING WORDS ON WIFE ABUSE here.

„A Christian woman should not feel that the only help available to her is the police. That would be a biblical failure of her church. But recourse to civil authorities may be the right thing for an abused wife to do.”

Piper explained that a husband who physically abuses his wife is breaking both God’s moral law and state civil law.

„God himself has put law enforcement officers in place for the protection of the innocent. ‘If you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer’ (Romans 13:4),” Piper cited. „A wife’s submission to the authority of civil law, for Christ’s sake, may, therefore, overrule her submission to a husband’s demand that she endure his injuries.

„This legitimate recourse to civil protection may be done in a spirit that does not contradict the spirit of love and submission to her husband, for a wife may take this recourse with a heavy and humble heart that longs for her husband’s repentance and the restoration of his nurturing leadership.”

Piper was first asked about a wife’s submission to an abusive husband in 2009. In his videotaped response, the longtime pastor asserted that a person’s higher allegiance is to Christ – above his or her spouse.

In that response, he also advised that the wife seek help from the church and have the husband disciplined by church leadership.

„She should have a safe place in a body of Christ where she goes and then the people in the church deal with him. The church is really crucial here to step in, be her strength, say to him ‘you can’t do this.’ … Let the leaders step in and help you navigate the difficulties.”

He received criticisms for his answer, he said, for not pointing to law enforcement as another form of help.

In his updated response, Piper wrote that every Christian is called to submit to various authorities so a wife’s submission is put into the wider context of submission to Jesus, civil authorities, each other and the church.

„This means that the rightness or wrongness of any act of submission is discerned by taking into account all the relevant relationships,” he stated. „We are all responsible to Jesus first, and then, under him, to various other persons and offices. Discerning the path of love and obedience when two or more of these submissive relationships collide is a call to humble, Bible-saturated, spiritual wisdom.”

He also stressed that while churches are called to mercy, they should not harbor someone whose abuse would be punishable by civil law.

„[T]here are times when mercy to one demands justice for another,” he stated. „This is often the case with criminal abuse. Moreover, there are many ways to show mercy toward a guilty person who must pay fines or go to jail. We are seldom in a position where the choice is simply mercy or no mercy.”

While a church may be able to bring the abusive spouse to repentance and reconciliation, there may also be cases where a church determines that civil authorities must be notified.

„In either case, no Christian woman (or man) should have to face abuse alone,” he highlighted.

In a plea to churches, Piper called for a culture where the men will not tolerate the abuse of any of its women.
