That I May Know Him

And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. ~ 1 John 5:20 (KJV)

Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? Jeremiah 23:29

The Name of Jesus Christ

Many people, including Christians, do not realize the power behind the name of Jesus. The devil, however, that subtil beast, is aware of such power and hates the precious name of Jesus. He wants to desensitize the world to His name and to His words.

The only name which is so used in vain is that which of Jesus Christ. And, if you think the English language is the only one which uses the name of Christ in vain, think again. The French language exceeds the English language in that matter. And why does the world use the name of God to “damn” things? It’s because there is POWER to His name. When a person is frustrated and feels loss of control, it’s almost all too natural to lash out at the person that is in control, and that is all powerful – Jesus Christ.

Believe me if Buddha had power, they'd use his name in vain. The same can be said of Muhammad and of Krishna. But nobody's yelling their names because buddha's dead, muhammad's dead and krishna is dead. Only Jesus Christ is alive and in control, and the devil is doing his best to desensitize the world to His name.

Our duty as believers is to SENTITIZE the world to the name of Jesus Christ. His name is so powerful that it’s only one that can save souls from the flaming fires of hell.

~Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12

After all, as it is written in Philippians 2:10-11 it’s at the name of Jesus that "every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."

So might as well sensitize the entire world to the power behind the name Jesus Christ as of now, before it’s too late for millions of them.

What a lovely name, the name of Jesus
Reaching higher far, than the brightest star
Sweeter than the songs they sing in heaven
Let the world proclaim, what a lovely name.

Just a short update

Thought I would write a small update on my life in general.

I am enjoying God’s goodness in the new house. We are still waiting to get our internet, but that should be fixed in the coming days, if not today.

I am also enjoying Mitchelle’s salvation. It’s really nice to see her grow in the Lord. She has been fellowshipping with the church family and now comes to church on her own, without me having to call her the night before.

I am anxiously waiting for the weekend of April 27 to the 29th, since our church is having a revival. Our guest speaker is Pastor Rick Sowell, from Hope Baptist Chruch, Toledo, Ohio.

Lately, the highlights of my weeks have been the sweet fellowships with my church family.
As Psalms 133 sums it up:
[1] Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren
to dwell together in unity!
[2] It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that
ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his
[3] As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended
upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.

God’s wonderful works

~Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done. Psalm 40:5

Amen. Mom, brother and I are finally settled into the new house. This past weekend has been altogether wonderful. Sure, moving is a lot of work and get can quite tiresome, but the Lord was with us every step of the way. He facilitated the move, and even made it FUN.

Even though Friday was everybody’s day off, mom counted 20 people from our church which came to help us out. There were even people that came to our new home the next day to help with the unpacking. In fact, even as I’m typing this post from my work, there are people with my mother and brother lending their continual help! This past weekend unveiled sweet fellowship with our Christian family (which, of course, includes a lot of food).

I cannot even put into words how thankful I am to my church family. I especially cannot put into words how thankful I am to Christ my Saviour for all the wonderful works He has done for me personally, for my family, and for my church.

It often seems that the Lord takes His time, but that is precisely why His works are always wonderful. He takes His time to perfect the things which He wants to bless us with. He also takes His time to perfect us!

As for me, I would like to take time to thank you all for your continual prayers, they are never in vain. Your prayers got us through the move. Thank you!!

Some of you may already know because of my mother’s post on Pen of Iron that we are finally moving into the new house the Lord has provided us with. We really appreciate everybody’s prayers in this. The Lord is so good. He has provided my mother, brother and I with a beautiful house to dwell in, but has also blessed us with a special church family.

Thanks to the love Christ has placed in the hearts of the brethren at Bible Baptist Church, we had no need to hire movers. What a blessing!!! MANY of our church friends volunteered their resources, services and time to come and help us with the move. My family and I are truly moved by their gestures and only pray we can offer them our help in return some day.

It’s quite late right now for me, but I just wanted to post about the move, because I may not be able to get on to the internet over the weekend. In fact, my mother informed that we may not have internet service at the new house for some time. I will, however, have access to the internet from my office, and will be able to visit all your blogs, which I truly love doing so, as of next Monday. I might even be able to get a few posts in.

Thank you all for your prayers and for your friendships. May the Lord bless each and every one of you. I love you all!!

“I’ll get to Heaven my way”

No, you won’t, don't kid yourself. All manners of people do all kinds of things hoping to make it to Heaven.

You know what the Bible calls those people?


John 10:1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

When you want to get into somebody's home, basically, you've got one of two choices. You will either go in the proper way - invited through the door, OR you will break your way in. A welcomed person will come in through the door. If it is 4 a.m., and you hear a strange noise coming from the kitchen window, that ain't grandma comin' over to fix apple pie!! That’s a thief and a robber. And how will the owner of the house treat the thief and the robber? I can assure you He will not consider the thief and robber his friend - he is his enemy and the man of the house will seek to cast out the intruder.

Simple. You either come in through the door or you're a thief and a robber and, as such, will be cast out.

Heaven is God's dwelling place – it’s God’s home. Every home has a door. The door to God's home has a name – Jesus Christ.

John 10:9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

Face it. You will not make it to heaven "your way". Your way leads to the lake of fire, but His way leads to Heaven.
