Dumnezeu nu este singura fericire, ci Dumnezeu este fericire. Punct. Pentru ca numai El poate sa ne dea fericirea, doar Dumnezeu.

Ioan 10:1- 18

,Adevărat, adevărat, vă spun că, cine nu intră pe uşă în staulul oilor, ci sare pe altă parte, este un hoţ şi un tîlhar. Dar cine intră pe uşă, este păstorul oilor. Portarul îi deschide, şi oile aud glasul lui; el îşi cheamă oile pe nume, şi le scoate afară din staul. După ce şi -a scos toate oile, merge înaintea lor; şi oile merg după el, pentrucă îi cunosc glasul. Nu merg deloc după un străin; ci fug de el, pentrucă nu cunosc glasul străinilor.„ Isus le -a spus această pildă, dar ei n’au înţeles despre ce le vorbea. Isus le -a mai zis: ,,Adevărat, adevărat, vă spun că Eu sînt uşa oilor. Toţi ceice au venit înainte de Mine, sînt hoţi şi tîlhari; dar oile n’au ascultat de ei. Eu sînt Uşa. Dacă intră cineva prin Mine, va fi mîntuit; va intra şi va ieşi, şi va găsi păşune. 10 Hoţul nu vine decît să fure, să junghie şi să prăpădească. Eu am venit ca oile să aibă viaţă, şi s’o aibă din belşug. 11 Eu sînt Păstorul cel bun. Păstorul cel bun îşi dă viaţa pentru oi. 12 Dar cel plătit, care nu este păstor, şi ale cărui oi nu sînt ale lui, cînd vede lupul venind, lasă oile şi fuge; şi lupul le răpeşte şi le împrăştie. 13 Cel plătit fuge, pentrucă este plătit, şi nu -i pasă de oi. 14 Eu sînt Păstorul cel bun. Eu Îmi cunosc oile Mele, şi ele Mă cunosc pe Mine, 15 aşa cum Mă cunoaşte pe Mine Tatăl, şi cum cunosc Eu pe Tatăl; şi Eu Îmi dau viaţa pentru oile Mele. 16 Mai am şi alte oi, cari nu sînt din staulul acesta; şi pe acelea trebuie să le aduc. Ele vor asculta de glasul Meu, şi va fi o turmă şi un Păstor. 17 Tatăl Mă iubeşte, pentrucă Îmi dau viaţa, ca iarăş s’o iau. 18 Nimeni nu Mi -o ia cu sila, ci o dau Eu dela Mine. Am putere s’o dau, şi am putere s’o iau iarăş: aceasta este porunca, pe care am primit -o dela Tatăl Meu.„

43 ianovici 5Florin Ianovici: Hristos a zis, „Eu imi dau viata, Eu mi-o iau.” Noi, cand am ajuns la capaul firului, orice am face, nu mai putem intoarce nimic. Mi-as dori ca atunci cand Dumnezeu din ceruri va decide pentru fiecare dintre noi ca este apusul de viata, mi-as dori sa nu privesti cu manie inapoi, sa nu privesti cu durere si Dumnezeu sa ne ajute sa traim o viata cu folos.

Am bagat de seama ca si crestinii credinciosi care au cuvantul lui Dumnezeu, au o educatie biblica, cunosc fagaduintele lui Dumnezeu (si) deseori cand stau de vorba cu ei nu sunt multumiti de ceea ce li se intampla, au dezamagiri, marturisesc ca se asteptau la ceva, asteptau un anumit mod de a trai, asteptau o anumita viata care nu potriveste cu ceea ce au. Si multi imi spun cu dezamagire, „Frate, am crezut ca fiind credincios viata mea va fi altfel. Am crezut ca altfel vor sta lucrurile.” Si multi sunt dezamagiti. Multi se socot neimpliniti in asteptarile pe care le au de la viata.

Cat de usor se strica fragilul asta de echilibru. Cat de repede ii ia necazului sa-ti fure bucuria? Ce rapid poate necazul ala a-ti intuneca orizontul? Cat de usor suntem de doborati, de clatinati. Si suntem oamenii lui Dumnezeu si alergam la rugaciune si alergam la cuvantul lui Dumnezeu, dar suntem foarte fragili. Si ma gandesc in aceasta seara ca nu multi ar putea sa strige, „Doamne, sunt o fantana care tasneste, sunt un izvor care tasneste. Doamne sunt o stanca pe care vanturile nu o doboara.” Nu multi ar putea spune lucrul acesta. Ferice de cine poate sa spuna lucrul acesta. Il binecuvantez si-i doresc sa ramana asa cum este.

  1. Mi-a placut ideea acesta despre viata care Dumnezeu ne-o da, este scrisa in Ioan 10:10Hristos face o afirmatie, nu doar mareata, ci Hristos face o afirmatie fundamentala. Imi doresc din toata inima sa ma rezim pe aceasta afirmatie si imi doresc din toata inima sa fie temelia a ceea ce eu cred. Ioan 10:10 spune:  Eu am venit ca oile să aibă viaţă, şi s’o aibă din belşug. Deci, rostul venirii Domnului Isus Hristos este ca nu cumva sa ramanem in saracia unei vieti traite fara de folos, ci sa avem o viata care sa fie din belsug.  Daca eu vreau o viata din belsug, mai intai va trebui sa inteleg ce este viata aceasta, ca apoi sa stiu sa o traiesc din belsug.
  2. In al doilea rand as vrea sa discutam ‘belsug’. Daca definim ce este viata, trebuie sa definim ce este si belsug.
  3. Apoi sa definim cum putem avea acest belsug
  4. Ce se intampla de nu-l avem sau cine ne fura belsugul pe care Domnul ni-l promite?

Nu ma intimideaza nici raceala, nici indiferenta, nici somnul, nici strambaturile, pentru ca eu ma fundamentez pe un adevar care este mai mare decat mine si este mai mare decat voi. Acesta este adevarul Scripturii. Ma linistesc cand stiu ca ma bizui pe ceva care nu e mana de la mine, nu este rodul gandirii mele. Si iata ce spune Biblia in primul rand despre viata….

In awe of God’s Creation – Aurora Borealis in Iceland Video- Coplesit de creatia lui Dumnezeu

Aurora Borealis observed in Norway on 2006-10-28.

One of the best video compilations I have seen!

Aurora Borealis are a natural light phenomena that can be seen specially in the Earth Poles. The North Pole ones are called Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights, while the South Pole are Aurora Australis or Southern Lights. They appear because of a collision from the particles that form the sun wind against the magnetic fields of the Earth.
The scene of this video is Iceland, a place with amazing landscapes at any time of the year, but it’s in winter when this country attracts the most attention because of the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights.

Enrique Pacheco has made this video during many personal expeditions and workshops in Iceland from the last three years. Enrique Pacheco is an expert in Iceland landscape and Aurora Borealis shooting, with more than 12 successful trips. If you are interested in travel to Iceland and live this unique experience, Enrique Pacheco offers workshops, in which you’ll learn the time-lapse technique, improve your photography skills and enjoy the amazing phenomena of the Aurora Borealis. enriquepacheco.com/workshop-aurora-borealis-in-iceland

This video has been made with the time-lapse technique, using DSLR cameras to capture consecutive pictures and then put them together. Most of the shots have 10 and 20 seconds of exposition in between, were shot with wide lenses and with the maximum aperture. ISO 1600 and 3200 are the main ones.

David Platt – The Cross and Christian Sexuality (Part 1 of 2)

You can print out and follow along with the sermon notes here (4 pages) – www.radical.net/files/2650/MN_130630_c.pdf

1 Corinthians 6:12-20 – Sexual Immorality

12 “I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything. 13 You say, “Food for the stomach and the stomach for food, and God will destroy them both.” The body, however, is not meant for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14 By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also.15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never! 16 Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.”[b] 17 But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.[c]

18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. 19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.

At the 21st minute Platt talks about God’s design for our bodies, particularly sexually, how God has designed sex. He also recommends a thick book, a theology of sexuality, titled ‘True Sexual Morality’ by Daniel Heimbach. What is God’s design?

  1. Sex is relational- the two become one flesh
  2. Sex is covenantal – something you participate with the wife of your youth. Sex is only celebrated, it’s only advocated in the Bible, in the context of exclusive covenant relationship between a husband and wife. There is no other kind of sex that is ever celebrated in the Bible.
  3. Sex is intimate. It’s obviously physical, yet deeply spiritual. It literally draws a woman and a man so close that nothing comes between them. Nothing divides them, nothing separates them. Sex is a powerful picture of personal intimacy.
  4. Sex is fruitful. Sex is productive.
  5. Sex is what leads men and women to multiply.
  6. Sex is selfless, not self centered. Husbands should love their wives as their own bodies.
  7. Sex is complex. It involves the mind, the body and the soul.

1964 video captures Intervarsity’s 7th christian foreign mission conference

Photo credit ivnorthflorida.org

Since 1946 InterVarsity has been providing a place for college students to see, hear, and respond to God’s global mission at Urbana conferences.  At Urbana students will learn about critical global issues from dynamic teachers, worship with thousands in one of the most diverse gatherings in North America, and be challenged by missional students and recent graduates who testify to God’s faithfulness to the ends of the earth.

This video below is a 16mm Ken Anderson film that captures the christian foreign missions mood of the churches in the tumultuous 60’s. At this convention, the students streamed in onto the campus of Illinois University from every state and province in the US and Canada, and 59 countries of the world (including 200 delegates from China). A harsh appraisal of the harsh realities confronting the church and the unfathomable resources of the power of God was the double barrel thrust that excited students as they weighed the totality of God’s demands on their lives and the harmony that exists between first century christianity and the  20th century world and their place in it.

At a time when protesting students are angrily staging free speech movements, dirty speech movements and free love movements, what is the magnet that draws 7,000 together to consider anything so devastatingly simple as the significance of foreign missions today. It is Intervarsity’s 7th Missionary Convention. The result was mental stimulation. It was positively exhilirating . At a time when our country was exclaiming over student irresponsibility, the atmosphere generated at this conference was one of seriousness and intense dedication, accompanied by wholesome humor and an absence of stuffiness. „Go ahead,” one father said, „but if you decide to become a missionary, don’t bother to come home.”

It was 1946 when Intervarsity launched its unique missionary endeavor. Once in every student generation- became the watchword. 600 attended that initial conclave. The number rose to 1400 at the second session. There were 1700 in 1951. Then with each 3 year span the total continued to rise. From the outset, the aims of the convention were clearly articulated.
