Ajarlah kami menghitung hari-hari kami sedemikian, hingga kami beroleh hati yang bijaksana. Mazmur 90:12
Tidak ada salahnya kita merenung, “Ke arah mana tujuan hidupmu?” Pertanyaan penting itu perlu kita tanyakan kepada diri sendiri karena hidup ini fana. Kefanaan manusia ditandai dengan: Pertama, terbatasnya usia. Berapa lama kita bisa hidup di dunia ini? “Tujuh puluh tahun dan jika kami kuat, delapan puluh tahun,” kata pemazmur. Itu pun berlalunya buru-buru, dan kita melayang lenyap. Kedua, keberdosaan kita. Pemazmur berkata, “Sungguh, kami habis lenyap karena murka-Mu, .... Engkau menaruh kesalahan kami di hadapan-Mu, dan dosa kami yang tersembunyi dalam cahaya wajah-Mu ... kami menghabiskan tahun-tahun kami seperti keluh” (Mazmur 90:7-9). Kita perlu menyadari kefanaan kita supaya kita hidup di dalam pertobatan dan memiliki tujuan hidup yang kekal, menyerahkan semua waktu, harta benda, karunia, dan hidup kita untuk kemuliaan Tuhan, bukan untuk memuaskan hawa nafsu.
Musa menyerahkan tongkatnya kepada Tuhan, dan Tuhan memakainya untuk memimpin bangsa Israel keluar dari Mesir. Daud menyerahkan pengali-alinya, dan Tuhan memakainya untuk mengalahkan Goliat. Matius, Markus, Lukas, dll. menyerahkan pena mereka kepada Tuhan, dan Tuhan memakai mereka untuk menulis Alkitab. Dorkas menyerahkan keahliannya menjahit kepada Tuhan dan Tuhan memakainya untuk menolong janda-janda. Mungkin yang kita miliki tidak banyak, tetapi yang sedikit itu akan menjadi berkat luar biasa sehingga hidup kita tidak sia-sia.

Amsal Hari Ini -- ( 30 Desember 2017 )
Tuhan Yesus memberkati
🕊🔥Revelation 1:1-8; This is a revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants the events that must soon take place. He sent an angel to present this revelation to his servant John, who faithfully reported everything he saw. This is his report of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. God blesses the one who reads the words of this prophecy to the church, and he blesses all who listen to its message and obey what it says, for the time is near. This letter is from John to the seven churches in the province of Asia. Grace and peace to you from the one who is, who always was, and who is still to come; from the sevenfold Spirit before his throne; and from Jesus Christ. He is the faithful witness to these things, the first to rise from the dead, and the ruler of all the kings of the world. All glory to him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by shedding his blood for us. He has made us a Kingdom of priests for God his Father. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen. Look! He comes with the clouds of heaven. And everyone will see him—even those who pierced him. And all the nations of the world will mourn for him. Yes! Amen! “I am the Alpha and the Omega—the beginning and the end,”says the Lord God. “I am the one who is, who always was, and who is still to come—the Almighty One.”🎺🔥🕊✝️🛐 #Bible#God#Love#Redeemed#Saved#Christian#Christianity#Pray#Chosen#jesus#lord#truth#praying#christ#jesuschrist#word#godly#angels#cross#faith#inspiration#jesussaves#worship#holy#holyspirit#praise#spiritualwarfare#jesuslovesyou#bornagain
Today was tough. Knowing you for over 20 years has been a trip. I know the good, the bad & the ugly, but have loved you always man. 14 years ago I thought you were done after your motorcycle accident. God had other plans. Great plans. Plans that took you all over to share about safety, the Lord & make new friends from your wheelchair. Your zest for life was infectious. Everyone you met was your friend. You always put others first. Even on one of your last days when I came to see you in the hospital, you being weak and sick, asked me first "How are the girls, I want you to know you are doing a great job" Ava will miss Speedway Nights with you. I'll never forget the look on her face when you put your leg behind your head & she looked is amazement & confusion, then you telling her "you want to do it? Try it, help me stretch" & she put your leg behind your head. I knew how much pain you were in that night but you turned it away from yourself. I'm glad I know where you are Rich. I know you wanted more time. I know you told me you were "not ready, I can live with the pain, I'm just not ready. But I'm ok because I'm gonna be healed Johnny". You will be missed. Take care of my lady until I get there homie. #RIP#RichBianchini#Classmates#CoWorkers#Friends#WeHadSomeGoodTimes#JesusSaves#ThankYouJesus#WheelchairDidntStopHim#GoneButNotForgotten
The Sixth Trumpet
This second-to-last trumpet will sound before a war is started near the Euphrates River. This waterway traverses Syria, Iraq, Turkey and Iran, which comprise the Middle East. Revelation 9:13-21 indicates that four angels will command an army of 200 million individuals. With a population of more than 1 billion people, China is able to field an army that consists of more than 200 million soldiers, and in addition, countries united under the Islamic faith have the ability to create an army of the same size. When a new world-dominating government is established under the Antichrist, an event coming very soon, we will be in the midst of a great war that will see the Abomination of Desolation and the Great Tribulation. The Final Trumpet, The sounding of the seventh trumpet will be the most dynamic event out of all the trumpets prophesied in the Bible, affecting all human beings. It is at this last trumpet that Jesus Christ will send angels to rapture all saints for their eternal reward and pass his judgments on the fate of the earth’s inhabitants. This event also marks the end of human government and the establishment of the Kingdom of God, on earth, for the next one thousand years. At this time, the end time, all of what the Bible has prophesied will come to pass and prove the power of God’s will. 🎺🔊🔥 #Bible#God#Love#Redeemed#Saved#Christian#Christianity#Pray#Chosen#jesus#lord#truth#praying#christ#jesuschrist#word#godly#angels#cross#faith#inspiration#jesussaves#worship#holy#holyspirit#praise#spiritualwarfare#jesuslovesyou#bornagain
