Când am fost cu inima mâhnită… O Poezie de Valentin Popovici

Când am cântat

Când am cântat cu inima uşoară,
Fără de griji un cântec alintat,
Mi se părea că îngerii coboară
În ritmul veseliei de chitară …
Ştiu însă azi că-atuncea n-am cântat!

valentin popoviciDar când am fost cu inima mâhnită,
Sub cruce apăsat şi-mpovărat,
N-a fost nici melodie strălucită,
Nici vers de poezie iscusită…
Dar ştiu acum că-atuncea am cântat!

Când am cântat ca să se-audă bine,
Cu sunet sigur, bine intonat,
Să nu mai cânte nimenea ca mine,
Şi să fiu lăudat de orişicine…
Oricum aş fi cântat, n-a fost cântat!

Dar când am fost cu inima zdrobită
Şi către Domnul bun am suspinat,
Rugându-L să mă scoată din ispită.
Şi vocea mi-era-n lacrime topită,
Nu se-auzea nimic…, dar am cântat!

INVITATIA:

Dragi frați, surori și prieteni români,

Vă salutăm în Numele Domnului nostru Isus Hristos și vă invităm cu mare bucurie să participați în perioada 30 august – 1 septembrie, 2013, la cea de-a 101-a Convenție a Bisericilor Baptiste Române din Statele Unite și Canada care va avea loc în orașul Portland.

Cu acest prilej dorim să abordăm o temă extrem de importantă pentru noi ca și credincioși ai lui Isus Hristos în secolul XXI. În Ioan 14:6 găsim cuvintele Domnului Isus: „Eu sunt calea, adevărul și viața. Nimeni nu vine la Tatăl decât prin Mine.“ În societatea actuală această afirmație pare irațională și exclusivistă. Posturile de radio și televiziune din ziua de azi n-ar permite ca cineva, în direct, să facă o asemenea afirmație fără să fie contrazis și ironizat imediat. În acest context am găsit cu cale ca tema acestei Convenții să fie: „Hristos, numai El!“, iar textul inspirator îl găsim în cuvintele apostolului Pavel din 1 Corinteni 2:2, „Căci n-am avut de gând să știu între voi altceva decât pe Isus Hristos și pe El răstignit.“

In Awe of God’s Creation – A Rare Event: Noctilucent Clouds & a Spectacular Aurora – Nori Noctilucenti si o Aurora Spectaculoasa – Coplesit de Creatia lui Dumnezeu

Photo credit and story www.slate.com (via Descoper.Ro)

ROMANIAN: 

EVENIMENT RAR: Norii noctilucenţi apar la altitudini înalte, iar oamenii de ştiinţă nu înţeleg încă modul în care aceştia se formează şi nici cum se schimbă. Acest fenomen este relativ rar, iar a vedea norii noctilucenţi în acelaşi timp cu o auroră boreală este mult mai rar.

Fotograful Maciej Winiarczyk a fost norocos şi a reuşit să observe acest spectacol celest. Winiarczyk se afla în nordul Scoţiei în noaptea de 4 august, când a reuşit să filmeze nu doar aceşti nori deosebiţi, ci şi aurora boreală. Rezultatul este un spectaculos film time-lapse

Unul dintre cele mai uluitoare momente surprinse în clipul video apare în minutul 1:42, când aurora străluceşte în nuanţe de roz şi purpuriu pe măsură ce moleculele de azot din aer sunt bombardate de vânturile solare.

Norii noctilucenţi sunt luminaţi la rândul lor de către Soare, fiind compuşi din cristale foarte mici de gheaţă situate la 75-85 de kilometri deasupra suprafeţei Pământului. Cristalele măsoară doar 0,1 microni în dimensiuni, adică de 1.000 de ori mai mici decât grosimea unui fir de păr. Aurorele se găsesc într-o regiune situată cu 12 kilometri mai sus decât aceşti nori.

VIDEO by Maciej Winiarczyk

ENGLISH (from the BBC)

An amateur astronomer has captured rare images of a night sky lit up by unusual high altitude clouds and the Aurora Borealis. Macieji Winiarczyk, a member of Caithness Astronomy Group (CAG), photographed the noctilucent clouds and Northern Lights earlier this month. The images were captured over Caithness and have been used to create time lapse footage.

US space agency Nasa has featured the time lapse on an astronomy website.

On the site, astronomers said it was rare to see the clouds and aurora individually. Noctilucent is the Cloud Appreciation Society’s cloud of the month for August. The society said they form in a region of extreme cold in the atmosphere about 30 to 50 miles (48-85 km) from the Earth’s surface.

On its website it said: „Noctiulcent clouds can only be spotted during the summer months and then only occasionally. „They always have an eerie blue, rippled appearance and the processes behind their formations are far from clear.”

God is the glorious Redeemer of his chosen people – Bruce Ware

My friends. I know that this is something that is highly objectionable in the culture in which we live. It’s an offense, out there in the culture to proclaim Jesus as the only way to be saved, but it’s true. And because it’s true, we cannot shy away from it. Goodness, their destinies are at stake, and our fidelity to God and Christ is at stake, in whether or not we are faithful to the Gospel message that Jesus is Savior of all who believe in Him.

God is exclusively God and incomparably God, and therefore deserves the highest glory because he is the glorious Redeemer of his chosen people. I want you to pause here with me and realize that this second point didn’t have to be in the Bible. Here’s what I mean by that: God created us, we’re dependent upon Him, we owe Him our allegiance, we owe Him our worship, we owe Him the adoration that He alone deserves. Because He is Creator, we owe that to Him. But, what did we do as His creatures? We rebelled against Him and went our own way. We committed tyranny against the Most High. And so, we brought upon ourselves the just condemnation of our Creator God, and He could have said, „That’s it!” and consigned us all to an eternity away from Him. Oh, yes,He could have. (Photo on right http://www.sbts.edu)

But, I am here to tell you something amazing, and that is that this Creator God, who looks down upon us now as sinners deserving judgment, designed a plan by which He could redeem us, save us from our sin, and bring us back to Himself, so that we could, with him, then again experience the fulness of joy we will only know because we are with the one who has it all. What did God do to accomplish this? Look with me at Isaiah again, chapter 52 and chapter 53. We’ll begin in Isaiah 52:7-10 and then read on in ch. 53:4-6.

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.”
The voice of your watchmen—they lift up their voice, together they sing for joy; for eye to eye they see the return of the Lord to Zion.
Break forth together into singing, you waste places of Jerusalem, for the Lord has comforted his people; he has redeemed Jerusalem.
10 The Lord has bared his holy arm before the eyes of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.

Now, how did He bring about this saving work? Isaiah 53:4-6-

Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions;
    he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
    and with his wounds we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
    we have turned—every one—to his own way;
and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

This is astonishing, amazing! That this God who is the Creator, who did not need the world that He created, now looks at this world that He created with its human population, sinful- all sinned against Him, turned away from Him, and in His compassion, devises a means by which we may be freed from our sin and brought back to Him. You see, that has to happen. Do you understand why that is the case? Because God is holy, and as the holy God that He is, He cannot have in His presence those who are sinful. And yet, He looks at us and we’re all in our sin. And He cannot have us with Him until sin is dealt with.

But, here’s the next problem. If He gives to us the task of getting rid of our own sin, it will never happen. There are no works we could do. There’s no amount of church going, or deeds that we can do that would rid us of the sin of our lives, that would qualify us to be in the presence of God. So what did God do? In His mercy He sent His Son, no less than His own Son to come and take on our human form and then bear our sin in His body, on the cross. That He might pay for that sin, and that we by faith, and faith alone, might be brought back to Him with sins forgiven, restored in fellowship to Him and enter into newness of life that will never ever end. What an incredible thing this God has done in giving His Son!

And, look at the ways in which it is expressed in Isaiah 53:4 „Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows” but now, the second part of the verse- if you were there on that day, when Jesus was hung on the cross between two thieves at Ghetsemane, what would it look like to you when you’d see this beaten, bloodied man crucified on this cross? What would it look like to you? Isaiah 53:4b „yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted” Here’s what it would look like: It would look like He is getting what He deserves. He is smitten of God and He is being judged of His own sin.

That’s what it looks like, but here’s the truth my friends. Verse 5 „But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; Do you see it? On the cross, He was not getting what He deserved, He was getting what we deserved. And He bore the sin of our lives, and the penalty of that sin, so that by faith we could be forgiven and be brought into newness of life and the fellowship of the Father, the Son, and the Spirit forever. It’s an amazing work that God has done for us in Christ. And, no other work of salvation is possible. That is, this is the only way to be saved. It is through what Christ has done for us.

My friends. I know that this is something that is highly objectionable in the culture in which we live. It’s an offense, out there in the culture to proclaim Jesus as the only way to be saved, but it’s true. And because it’s true, we cannot shy away from it. Goodness, their destinies are at stake, and our fidelity to God and Christ is at stake, in whether or not we are faithful to the Gospel message that Jesus is Savior of all who believe in Him. By the way, ask yourself this question: How many Saviors does a sinful world need? You just need one that works. Guess what? We’ve got one that works. And Jesus is that one Savior, whose death on the cross paid the penalty of the sins of the world, that anyone who believes might be brought into relationship with Him. So indeed, God as Redeemer of His people took upon Himself the cost of our salvation in His son and paid the penalty for it.

„The Incomparable Glory of God,”

God is exclusively God and incomparably God, and therefore deserves the highest glory because he is the glorious Redeemer of his chosen people. Creator God, who looks now upon us as sinners deserving judgment, designed a plan by which he could redeem us, save us from our sin, and bring us back to himself so that we could be with him. What an incredible thing this God has done in giving his Son.

This clip is excerpted from the sermon „The Incomparable Glory of God,” the second part of our sermon series Best Sermon Ever. It was preached by Dr. Bruce Ware out of Isaiah 40–45 at Mars Hill Downtown Bellevue and released on August 18.
