Predica Ghiță Mocan – Cum să-L urmezi pe Isus? Biserica Betesda Dublin

3 dialoguri de-ale Domnului Isus Hristos, care-L aduce pe Isus fata in fata cu 3 oameni diferiti. Pe drumul ultim, pe care-l face Domnul Isus, pe drumul Calvarului, El pleaca acum pe ultimul drum pamantesc, spre Ierusalim, si intalneste in drumul Lui, fiind impreuna cu ucenicii, acesti 3 oameni diferiti. Si, Domnul are un dialog scurt cu oamenii acestia.

TEXT Luca 9:57-62  Cum să urmăm pe Isus.

57 Pe când erau pe drum, un om I-a zis: „Doamne, Te voi urma oriunde vei merge.”
58 Isus i-a răspuns: „Vulpile au vizuini, şi păsările cerului au cuiburi; dar Fiul omului n-are unde-Şi odihni capul.”
59 Altuia i-a zis: „Vino după Mine!” „Doamne”, I-a răspuns el, „lasă-mă să mă duc întâi să îngrop pe tatăl meu.”
60 Dar Isus i-a zis: „Lasă morţii să-şi îngroape morţii, şi tu du-te de vesteşte Împărăţia lui Dumnezeu.”
61 Un altul a zis: „Doamne, Te voi urma, dar lasă-mă întâi să mă duc să-mi iau rămas bun de la ai mei.”
62 Isus i-a răspuns: „Oricine pune mâna pe plug, şi se uită înapoi nu este destoinic pentru Împărăţia lui Dumnezeu.”

Florin Ianovici – Câteva ceva despre Charlie

Iov 33:6 „Înaintea lui Dumnezeu eu sunt semenul tău, şi eu, ca şi tine, am fost făcut din noroi” – dar ce se află sub noroi va face diferența -.

Această săptămână e cu siguranță săptămâna lui ,, je suis Charlie’’ și ar trebui să învățăm câte ceva din acestă tragedie.

Prea târziu.
E frumoasă frăția lacrimilor și e înălțător să iei apărarea celor năpăstuiți și neputincioși în a se apăra față de nedreptate. Oamenii credincioși sunt chemați să fie lumina lumii și sarea pămăntului ceea ce înseamnă că viața de credință nu înseamnă pasivitate iar tăcerea poate fi și condamnabilă. Dureros e că în ultima perioadă frăția lacrimilor este constituită post mortem. Dincolo de durerea lacrimilor vărsate pentru cei uciși, mă doare faptul că nu mai există un semănat al lacrimilor ci doar un seceriș al lor. Suntem chemați să investim lacrimile prin rugăciune ca sufletele oamenilor să devină un seceriș plin de cântece de bucurie. Celor morți le poți face doar un mormânt. Pe cei ce încă trăiesc îi poți scoate din mormântul păcatului prin dragostea lui Hristos. Să nu ne trezim prea târziu!

Prea departe.
E hidoasă religia care ucide cu numele lui Dumnezeu pe buze. Nu e vorba doar de extremis și fundamentalism cât mai ales de prostie și răutate în forma sa cea mai periculoasă: fanatismul. Un suflet trezit la viață de credință trăiește miracolul creației și al dragostei Creatorului. Cei care seceră vieți și seamănă gloanțe nu au cunoscut niciodată singura cale pe care nu se rătăcește nimeni: dragostea de semeni și de Dumnezeu. Când cruzimea îmbracă haina religiei s-a ajuns deja prea departe.

Prea mult.
E revoltătoare libertatea care nu ține cont că viața e un plural, adică o paletă de trăiri, convingeri și alegeri care nu pot fi batjocorite în numele progresului, al avangardismului. Liberul arbitru, libertatea exprimării nu înseamnă să reducem viața tuturor la un singur mod de a trăi – indiferent de nuanță – ci de a permite omului să aleagă iar alegerea sa să fie respectată. Persiflarea, caricaturizarea și luarea peste picior, ocară și insulta nu au fost și nu vor fi niciodată mijloace de exprimare ci neputința unora de a înțelege sufletul diferit al aproapelui. Bălăcăreala și cloaca vor rămâne mizerabile chiar dacă libertatea exprimării îți permite să le practici. Când libertatea înseamnă dreptul să scuip pe sufletul aproapelui deja e prea mult.

Dincolo de faptul că unii aleg ,,je suis Charlie’’ sau că alții aleg ,, je ne suis pas Charlie’’ cei mai mulți simțim că e prea mult, că s-a ajuns prea departe și tare mă tem că e prea târziu.

Pastor Marius Birgean – Are Dumnezeu nevoie să fie apărat cu kalașnikovul?

Screen Shot 2015-01-10 at 4.44.01 PMPastor Marius Birgean:
Prima saptămână plină a noului an ne-a adus față în față cu realitatea brutală a răului din lume. În ciuda faptului ca oamenii de pe toate meridianele și-au urat unii altora să aibă parte de tot ce este mai bine în noul an, în ciuda focurilor de artificii din noaptea de Revelion începute cu locuitorii din Tuvalu si finalizate cu cei de la capătul celălalt al fusului orar, în ciuda milioanelor de petrecăreți din noaptea de Anul Nou, primele zile ale lui 2015 ne-au confruntat cu aceeași veche problemă a umanității: ura și violența care ucide. A ucis de la Cain încoace și a facut nenumarate victime până la jurnalistii de la Charlie Hebdo din Paris, Miercurea aceasta. (În plus, și alte victime„colaterale”-ostaticii din magazinul evreiesc, politiști, etc.).

Acum, lumea intreaga este împărțita între „Je suis Charlie” și cei care, deși simpatizează cu victimele acestui atac laș și barbar, au o alta opinie în ce priveste libertatea de expresie, sau- mă rog, de limitele ei- până unde poate merge ea.

Întâi de toate, este clar faptul ca riposta atacatorilor islamici asupra redacției saptămânalului francez, asupra unor satiriști și caricaturiști a fost la urma urmei un act barbar și reprehensibil. Dimensiunea dispoportionată a ripostei este clară: moarte versus satiră. Ca să parafrazez titlul unui cotidian de la noi:„Nimeni n-a omorât vreodată pe cineva cu o foaie de hârtie”.Și totuși…

Chipuri şi măşti – Nicolae.Geantă

Nicolae GeantaLa o grădină zoo, un bărbat s-a angajat pe post de… maimuţă. Într-o zi, când se legăna pe-o liană, şi-a făcut un elan mai serios, şi a sărit (fără să vrea) în … cuşca leului! Speriat, disperat şi cu ochii cât cepele, „domnul maimuţă” a văzut coasa morţii deasupra capului! În schimb, leul, şi-a scos liniştit masca şi a zâmbit: „stai liniştit, şi eu port mască!”

Opinez cu Kierkegaard, că în viaţă, noi oamenii, suntem actori. Buni sau răi. Dar, cu măşti. Jucăm teatru, deşi viaţa noastră e realitate. Prostia este că teatrul suntem noi, iar auditoriul este Dumnezeu! Şi dacă Lui nu-i place, jucăm în pagubă. Oricât ne-am strădui să impresionăm, piesa nu-i decât spirit gregar.

Masca e faţada umană. E mascaradă (mascarada, în italiană înseamnă faţadă). E ceva exterior ce lipseşte în interior. E gard vopsit în faţă. Vopsea peste rugină. E ipocrizie. E dispreţ. E Anania, e Ghehazi, e Iuda, e Balaam, e dracu’! Cu masca pe figură, omul nu vrea să schimbe lumea. Problema lui, e să-i facă faţă. Poate?

Trăim în epidemia măştilor. Până şi feţele bisericeşti le poartă. După slujbe, sutana de preot, costumul de păstor, intră la naftalină, sunt agăţate în cui… „Să bea niţel şi nea Ion, că şi el e om”, zicea bunica despre sfinţii care îl lăsau pe Dumnezeu încuiat în biserică de duminica până duminica. Ironic, evident. Nefericirea este că, printre enoriaşi, unii poartă masca de fraţi numai la biserică, numai duminica sau în ziua a şaptea, numai până se-nsoară ori au pus mâna pe-un june. Până trec pe lângă un cerşetor, până a ajuns farfuria colectei în dreptu-i, până ţipă careva din familie cu decibeli, până a dat teză şi nu ştie nimic. Cât despre blogării creştini, ce să spunem? Aici e prezentă panoplia de carnaval, erudiţia de paradă.

Cu masca, poţi să pozezi în erou, dar adevărul e că în sânge eşti dezertor. Masca e ca şi jocul virtual, în spatele monitorului, orice măscărici se declară Casanova! E ca învelitorile mortuare puse pe cai la dric: orice mârţoagă devine armăsar apocaliptic.

Masca înseamnă mai multe feţe, de sfânt, de curvar, de samaritean şi iudeu în acelaşi timp. Iacov, spune că nu se poate să porţi o mască a lumii, fără să fi vrăjmaş cu Dumnezeu. Fratele Wurmbrand scria că în limba ebraică, cuvântul faţă este panim, adică feţe, la plural.

Unii şi-au făcut din purtatul măştilor un tabiet, un ideal. Au ajuns chiar ei însuşi să nu se mai cunoască. Nici privindu-se-n oglindă. Nichita Stănescu spunea că „a avea un ideal înseamnă a avea o oglindă”. Cristian Tudor Popescu afirmă însă că ideea nichitiană este cât se poate de falsă, argumentând: „Oglinda este simbolul consacrat al reflectării aparenţei. În oglindă nu vezi decât cum arăţi, nu cum eşti. Or, idealul nu ţine de aparenţă, ci de esenţă. Dacă ceea ce vezi în oglindă înseamnă ideal, atunci ai mari şanse să te numeşti Adolf Hitler, Nicolae Ceauşescu sau Oana Zăvoranu, căci şi ea are oglindă”.

Ca şi tutunul, purtatul măştilor e sinucidere amânată.

John Piper: Responding to God According to His Word (Nehemiah 9–10)

Photo credit assorted-ideas.com

One of the main points of Nehemiah 9 & 10, indeed, one of the main points of the whole Bible is that God does not exist for the sake of our enjoyment of Bible stories. But, Bible stories exist for the sake of our enjoyment of God. And the reason I begin with that and say it that way is not only because it stands out amazingly in chapter 9, to be the case, but also, because we live in a day when there is enormous fascination with story and narrative, and tracing themes through the Bible according to its storyline, and I simply want to wave the flag that says: There is a point to the story, there’s a point to the narrative. And the point is a Person. Bible stories are no more ends in themselves, then the universe is an end to itself, or history is an end in itself.

There’s a point to the universe. There’s a point to history. The heavens are telling the glory of God. That’s what the universe is about: the glory of God. The heavens, the universe is telling that. And history is what it is in order to show that God is who He is. That’s what history is for. God writes His story, He acts His story in order to make known who He is. So, look at verse 10 in chapter 9 – The levites are praying; they’re the ones speaking through this whole chapter, virtually. And they say to God, in verse 10

10 You sent signs and wonders against Pharaoh, against all his officials and all the people of his land, for you knew how arrogantly the Egyptians treated them. You made a name for yourself, which remains to this day.

So, what was God doing when He broguht 10 plagues upon Egypt, when He split the Red Sea, and when He delivered the people of Israel from bondage? What was He doing when He acted this story. that would be told 10,000 times? What was He doing? And, the answer is at the end of verse 10 : You were making a name for Yourself. (3:44)

Nehemiah 9 & 10

The Israelites Confess Their Sins

On the twenty-fourth day of the same month, the Israelites gathered together, fasting and wearing sackcloth and putting dust on their heads. Those of Israelite descent had separated themselves from all foreigners. They stood in their places and confessed their sins and the sins of their ancestors. They stood where they were and read from the Book of the Law of the Lord their God for a quarter of the day, and spent another quarter in confession and in worshiping the Lord their God. Standing on the stairs of the Levites were Jeshua, Bani, Kadmiel, Shebaniah, Bunni, Sherebiah, Bani and Kenani. They cried out with loud voices to the Lord their God. And the Levites—Jeshua, Kadmiel, Bani, Hashabneiah, Sherebiah, Hodiah, Shebaniah and Pethahiah—said: “Stand up and praise the Lord your God, who is from everlasting to everlasting.”

“Blessed be your glorious name, and may it be exalted above all blessing and praise. You alone are the Lord. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you.

“You are the Lord God, who chose Abram and brought him out of Ur of the Chaldeans and named him Abraham. You found his heart faithful to you, and you made a covenant with him to give to his descendants the land of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Jebusites and Girgashites. You have kept your promise because you are righteous.

“You saw the suffering of our ancestors in Egypt; you heard their cry at the Red Sea. 10 You sent signs and wonders against Pharaoh, against all his officials and all the people of his land, for you knew how arrogantly the Egyptians treated them. You made a name for yourself, which remains to this day. 11 You divided the sea before them, so that they passed through it on dry ground, but you hurled their pursuers into the depths, like a stone into mighty waters. 12 By day you led them with a pillar of cloud, and by night with a pillar of fire to give them light on the way they were to take.

13 “You came down on Mount Sinai; you spoke to them from heaven. You gave them regulations and laws that are just and right, and decrees and commands that are good. 14 You made known to them your holy Sabbath and gave them commands, decrees and laws through your servant Moses. 15 In their hunger you gave them bread from heaven and in their thirst you brought them water from the rock; you told them to go in and take possession of the land you had sworn with uplifted hand to give them.

16 “But they, our ancestors, became arrogant and stiff-necked, and they did not obey your commands. 17 They refused to listen and failed to remember the miracles you performed among them. They became stiff-necked and in their rebellion appointed a leader in order to return to their slavery. But you are a forgiving God, gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love. Therefore you did not desert them, 18 even when they cast for themselves an image of a calf and said, ‘This is your god, who brought you up out of Egypt,’ or when they committed awful blasphemies.

19 “Because of your great compassion you did not abandon them in the wilderness. By day the pillar of cloud did not fail to guide them on their path, nor the pillar of fire by night to shine on the way they were to take. 20 You gave your good Spirit to instruct them. You did not withhold your manna from their mouths, and you gave them water for their thirst. 21 For forty years you sustained them in the wilderness; they lacked nothing, their clothes did not wear out nor did their feet become swollen.

22 “You gave them kingdoms and nations, allotting to them even the remotest frontiers. They took over the country of Sihon king of Heshbon and the country of Og king of Bashan. 23 You made their children as numerous as the stars in the sky, and you brought them into the land that you told their parents to enter and possess. 24 Their children went in and took possession of the land. You subdued before them the Canaanites, who lived in the land; you gave the Canaanites into their hands, along with their kings and the peoples of the land, to deal with them as they pleased. 25 They captured fortified cities and fertile land; they took possession of houses filled with all kinds of good things, wells already dug, vineyards, olive groves and fruit trees in abundance. They ate to the full and were well-nourished; they reveled in your great goodness.

26 “But they were disobedient and rebelled against you; they turned their backs on your law. They killed your prophets, who had warned them in order to turn them back to you; they committed awful blasphemies. 27 So you delivered them into the hands of their enemies, who oppressed them. But when they were oppressed they cried out to you. From heaven you heard them, and in your great compassion you gave them deliverers, who rescued them from the hand of their enemies.

28 “But as soon as they were at rest, they again did what was evil in your sight. Then you abandoned them to the hand of their enemies so that they ruled over them. And when they cried out to you again, you heard from heaven, and in your compassion you delivered them time after time.

29 “You warned them in order to turn them back to your law, but they became arrogant and disobeyed your commands. They sinned against your ordinances, of which you said, ‘The person who obeys them will live by them.’ Stubbornly they turned their backs on you, became stiff-necked and refused to listen. 30 For many years you were patient with them. By your Spirit you warned them through your prophets. Yet they paid no attention, so you gave them into the hands of the neighboring peoples. 31 But in your great mercy you did not put an end to them or abandon them, for you are a gracious and merciful God.

32 “Now therefore, our God, the great God, mighty and awesome, who keeps his covenant of love, do not let all this hardship seem trifling in your eyes—the hardship that has come on us, on our kings and leaders, on our priests and prophets, on our ancestors and all your people, from the days of the kings of Assyria until today. 33 In all that has happened to us, you have remained righteous; you have acted faithfully, while we acted wickedly. 34 Our kings, our leaders, our priests and our ancestors did not follow your law; they did not pay attention to your commands or the statutes you warned them to keep. 35 Even while they were in their kingdom, enjoying your great goodness to them in the spacious and fertile land you gave them, they did not serve you or turn from their evil ways.

36 “But see, we are slaves today, slaves in the land you gave our ancestors so they could eat its fruit and the other good things it produces. 37 Because of our sins, its abundant harvest goes to the kings you have placed over us. They rule over our bodies and our cattle as they please. We are in great distress.

The Agreement of the People

38 “In view of all this, we are making a binding agreement, putting it in writing, and our leaders, our Levites and our priests are affixing their seals to it.”

Nehemiah 10

Those who sealed it were:

3 Pashhur, Amariah, Malkijah,
4 Hattush, Shebaniah, Malluk,
5 Harim, Meremoth, Obadiah,

7 Meshullam, Abijah, Mijamin,
8 Maaziah, Bilgai and Shemaiah.
These were the priests.
9 The Levites:
Jeshua son of Azaniah, Binnui of the sons of Henadad, Kadmiel,
10 and their associates: Shebaniah,
Hodiah, Kelita, Pelaiah, Hanan,
11 Mika, Rehob, Hashabiah,
12 Zakkur, Sherebiah, Shebaniah,
13 Hodiah, Bani and Beninu.
14 The leaders of the people:
Parosh, Pahath-Moab, Elam, Zattu, Bani,
15 Bunni, Azgad, Bebai,
16 Adonijah, Bigvai, Adin,
17 Ater, Hezekiah, Azzur,
18 Hodiah, Hashum, Bezai,

23 Hoshea, Hananiah, Hasshub,
24 Hallohesh, Pilha, Shobek,
25 Rehum, Hashabnah, Maaseiah,
26 Ahiah, Hanan, Anan,
27 Malluk, Harim and Baanah.

28 “The rest of the people—priests, Levites, gatekeepers, musicians, temple servants and all who separated themselves from the neighboring peoples for the sake of the Law of God, together with their wives and all their sons and daughters who are able to understand— 29 all these now join their fellow Israelites the nobles, and bind themselves with a curse and an oath to follow the Law of God given through Moses the servant of God and to obey carefully all the commands, regulations and decrees of the Lord our Lord.

30 “We promise not to give our daughters in marriage to the peoples around us or take their daughters for our sons.

31 “When the neighboring peoples bring merchandise or grain to sell on the Sabbath, we will not buy from them on the Sabbath or on any holy day. Every seventh year we will forgo working the land and will cancel all debts.

32 “We assume the responsibility for carrying out the commands to give a third of a shekel each year for the service of the house of our God: 33 for the bread set out on the table; for the regular grain offerings and burnt offerings; for the offerings on the Sabbaths, at the New Moon feasts and at the appointed festivals; for the holy offerings; for sin offerings to make atonement for Israel; and for all the duties of the house of our God.

34 “We—the priests, the Levites and the people—have cast lots to determine when each of our families is to bring to the house of our God at set times each year a contribution of wood to burn on the altar of the Lord our God, as it is written in the Law.

35 “We also assume responsibility for bringing to the house of the Lord each year the firstfruits of our crops and of every fruit tree.

36 “As it is also written in the Law, we will bring the firstborn of our sons and of our cattle, of our herds and of our flocks to the house of our God, to the priests ministering there.

37 “Moreover, we will bring to the storerooms of the house of our God, to the priests, the first of our ground meal, of our grain offerings, of the fruit of all our trees and of our new wine and olive oil. And we will bring a tithe of our crops to the Levites, for it is the Levites who collect the tithes in all the towns where we work. 38 A priest descended from Aaron is to accompany the Levites when they receive the tithes, and the Levites are to bring a tenth of the tithes up to the house of our God, to the storerooms of the treasury. 39 The people of Israel, including the Levites, are to bring their contributions of grain, new wine and olive oil to the storerooms, where the articles for the sanctuary and for the ministering priests, the gatekeepers and the musicians are also kept.

“We will not neglect the house of our God.”

Born in San Francisco on July 1, 1942, and raised in Los Angeles, Andraé Edward Crouch was the son of bivocational-pastor parents Benjamin and Catherine Crouch. He has recounted that he received the gift of music as a child, when his father was called as a guest preacher and pastoral candidate to a small rural church that had no musicians. He began playing for them at the age of 11. He wrote his first gospel song at 14, and formed his first band, the COGICS, in 1960.

In 1965 he formed The Disciples, which lasted until 1979, and as a protegé of Audrey Mieir, Ralph Carmichael, and other leading Contemporary Christian Music artists of the time, went on to win a total of nine Grammies, and numerous other awards. He wrote his first well-known song, „The Blood Will Never Lose Its Power”, at the age of 15, but most of his songs that have gained congregational currency flowed from the years when he was active with The Disciples. After The Disciples were disbanded, Crouch continued his recording and performing career, and also became more active in church ministries.

After his parents died (1993-94), with his twin sister Sandra he took over the pastorate at the church his parents had led, New Christ Memorial Church of God in Christ in Pacoima, California. In December, 2014, Crouch was hospitalized for treatment of pneumonia and congestive heart failure, and on January 3, 2015, he was readmitted to the hospital following a heart attack. He died there five days later, at the age of 72. His twin sister and co-pastor Sandra Crouch issued the following statement: „Today my twin brother, womb-mate and best friend went home to be with the Lord. Please keep me, my family and our church family in your prayers. I tried to keep him here but God loved him best.” (http://www.hymnary.org)

Andraé Crouch  1942 – 2015

Limba ROMANA –

Trad. Blogul Agnus Dei: Andrae Edward Crouch, s-a nascut in San Francisco in ziua de 1 Iulie 1942, si a crescut in Los Angeles, fiul unui pastor cu doua profesii, tatal cu numele de Benjamin si mama Catherine Crouch. El a povestit ca si-a  primit darul de muzica pe cand era copil, cand tatal sau a fost chemat ca predicator oaspete si candidat pastoral la o biserica mica din zona rurala care nu avea cantareti/muzicieni. El a inceput sa cante in acea biserica la varsta de 11 ani. A scris primul cantec gospel la 14 ani, si si-a format primul sau grup musical numit „COGIGS”, in anul 1960.

In 1965 a format grupul The Disciples (Ucenicii), care a durat pana in anul 1979, timp in care a castigat noua premii Grammies, si numeroase alte premii. El a scris primul sau cantec binecunoscut intitulat ,,Sangele Nu-Si Pierde Niciodata Puterea,” la varsta de 15 ani, dar majoritatea cantarilor care au castigat valabilitatea in biserici au abundat in timpul activitatii grupului musical, The Disciples. Dupa ce grupul The Disciples s-a dizolvat, Crouch a continuat in cariera sa de cantare si inregistrare. si a devenit totodata mai activ in activitatile bisericesti.

Dupa ce parintii sai au murit (1993-94), impreuna cu sora lui Sandra, au preluat pastoratul la biserica pe care au condus-o parintii, numita ,,New Christ Memorial Church of God in Christ”, in Pocoima, California. In Decembrie, 2014, Crouch a fost spitalizat pentru tratament de aprindere la plamani si insuficienta cardiaca congestiva, si in 3 Ianuarie 2015, a fost readmis in spital ca urmare a anui atac de cord. A murit acolo cinci zile mai tarziu, la varsta de 72 de ani. Sora lui geamana Sandra Crouch a emis urmatoarea declaratie: ,,Astazi fratele meu geaman, tovaras-de-pantece, si cel mai bun prieten a plecat acasa ca sa fie cu Domnul. Va rog sa ma tineti pe mine, familia mea si familia de biserica in rugaciunile voastre. Eu am incercat sa-l tin aici cu mine, dar Dumnezeu l-a iubit cel mai mult.”
