Mirror, Mirror on the……

March 2, 2013

How many hours do we consume in front of our mirror to make sure we are pleasant as we want to see by others?  Okay, minutes –(if really in a hurry, right?)  From tip of our hair down to our foot, we are ensuring we are perfectly pretty-handsome before we left the mirror in our wall.  Agree or not, this is the real scenario nowadays.

But to true Christians ( I emphasizing the word ‘true’ coz there are so-called Christians which is fake – simply because they follow not our Lord Jesus Christ’s commandments) the mirror they facing is no ordinary mirror day by day, every second of their lives – DOCTRINES!  Ensuring that they are pretty-handsome in the eyes of Almighty Creator is the most important to them by following the doctrines of Christ.

So when a Christian woman face the mirror (material mirror), the spiritual mirror will tell her this:

1Ti 2:9  In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

And when someone done wrong to  Christian man, the mirror he facing will respond this:

Luke 6:27  But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,

Such mirror that we are facing everyday must be in our heart, so that we will not forget.

Thanks be to God!

Spiritually……A Zombie!

March 2, 2013

Movies about zombies are really nice to watch (in my own opinion) like The Walking Dead, Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead that horrifies viewers (horrified me).  These dead people that came alive (I do not know how it came to happen), walking and dancing and as always look for their food – man’s flesh, alive man of course, as we all know.  (I would like to upload a picture of them but it gave me some abdominal pain…better see for yourself instead, they were too many to see.)

Anyway this post is not about the material zombie, dead-then-alive, nope!  It just came to my mind the preaching of Bro. Eli Soriano about the verse written by James;

James 2:26  For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

A Zombie has no spirit at all, actually he matters only how to survive by eating flesh, but they are physically alive.  Just like people who are alive but spiritually dead, no spirit coming from God.  The Bible tell us who are these people (again I have learned these things from Bro. Eli, thanks be to God!)  and clearly written in I Timothy;

1Timothy 5:6  But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth.

Are these people alive?  Yes they are physically alive, that’s why they have time to waste their live in pleasure and no time to spend with God.  And we will found them in the congregation of the dead (too many zombies).

Proverbs 21:16  The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.

So now, our question is – are YOU a zombie spiritually speaking? Alive but dead? Are you belong in the congregation of the dead?  Time to wake up friend, be alive in body and spirit.  You may ask “how to become alive in spirit?”, very well… start to listen to Bro. Eli Soriano, he is the one in-charge, see for yourself.  Read his blog.
