Waiting….

Waiting. It’s one of the hardest things we do. Waiting for answers, waiting for the phone to ring, waiting for someone to arrive. Waiting is loaded with expectations and anticipations. We are waiting for something, someone and things will change when the waiting is over.

Waiting is a pause in our lives, as if the picture is frozen on the screen and we wait for someone to once more push the play button. Waiting is hard.

 God’s Concept of Healing

By Olabode Oluwatosin

Matthew 18;21) Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?22) Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.

God is too GOD to be creating junk files… He is too supreme to be establishing laws or stating facts that are of little or no significance… Anyone that studies scripture deeply and closely will realise that God spoke in certain patterns, pending the context and all the time to “hit a certain Nail”…

 Are your plans based on the urgent or the important?

The wise leader will learn from everything in their environment. Read Proverbs 6:6-8.

Every leader has the potential to learn principals of leadership by simply studying the organization and activity of an ant colony.

Nature abounds with illustrations of animals and insects that store up provisions during times of abundance in preparation for times of scarcity. God gave them instincts to look ahead and prepare. In today’s verses the ants do what needs to be done when it needs to be done to make provision for the future.

The Delusion of Doctrine

 

wend2

By Sam Williamson

For much of human history, people have been executedbecause of their beliefs. These people weren’t killed for antisocial behavior (like murder, rape, or treason); they were slain simply because of their inner-conviction about reality. We’re more tolerant today. That’s good. I don’t want to be burned alive because I believe that Android phones are better than iPhones (though I confess to liking roasted Apples…). It’s right we abandon belief-based execution, but remember those who experienced it.

Thousands of men and women willingly suffered slaughter without recanting. They believed so strongly, they wouldn’t pretend to deny their beliefs; even to save their lives.

 “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way, the truth and the life.’”

John 14:6

Truth

The moment couldn’t be any more poignant. It was their last meal together, at least that side of the cross. And at this pivotal meal — what was expected as the Passover but became the first Lord’s Supper — the disciples were as clueless about what was going on, as they were so many times before.

With Judas already departed, entering the darkness of what would begin his eternal night, Jesus broke the bread and shared the cup, reinterpreting their meaning in light of himself. Once a memorial of their bondage in Egypt, now it would be a memorial about what would transpire in less than 24 hours.

 “Jesus Wept”

by Freddy Winter

“Jesus wept.” (John 11:35) That is the shortest verse in the entire Bible, yet those two words are so profound and powerful. Why did Jesus weep? Might it be because Jesus seeing Martha and Mary in such a grief and anguish over the loss of their beloved brother Lazarus? Jesus already knew that He would raise Lazarus in just a few moments, but He still wept.

I believe that Jesus felt compassion, seeing the grief death causes to those who have lost a loved one. Death is not natural and came into the world because of the disobedience of Adam and Eve. Their sin caused first of all spiritual death i.e. eternal separation from God, and secondly physical death. When God made Adam and Eve, He made them perfect, they were sinless and in communion with him….

World Prayr has chosen to be different, starting with teaching others that the pilgrimage all of those who have been brought near to God are on is not one that is about our focusing on what we are doing, or focusing on our sin or anything we are not doing, but rather focusing on what Christ did in order for us to know transforming grace. We refer to this message as the gospel of grace. We then live this out as a ministry by serving others through counseling, prayer and sound biblical teachings.

We, also, differ from most ministries in another key area and that is working to live out the message of Philippians 2:4, by aggressively promoting other ministries and churches. As a mission team World Prayr is working to serve those who are disconnected and re-connecting them, one soul at a time to local bodies of believers.

We refer to our team as an “Ohana” which is made up of many nationalities spread across the globe and within the Protestant faith.
