Thy Holy Writ

Romans chapter 8, verses 24 – 28 (NKJV)
“Hope”

24) For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees?
25) But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.

26) Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
27) Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

28) And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

Hope, what a beautiful word. So optimistic in it’s pronunciation. And the fact that the Holy Spirit speaks on behalf of us, is a blessing indeed. To have hope is to live. But hope in the right things is what we should strive for. Hope in Jesus and hope in one’s self, to do the right things in our choices. The right thing that is pleasing and acceptable to God our Father.

Question is, where is your hope ? Is it in you ? Or is it with Christ ? Only you know if you are right with God. Are there things that you still need to work on ? Then work on them with do haste. For hope can be fleeting, yet hope in Christ “eternal”.

Have a blessed and wonderful day folks and be sure to put your hope in the Lord,

What say you???

Folks, for some reason God lead me this morning to a Google + page and I was asked to follow “Pakistan”. As I was reading their page I came across this comment from someone on their link and I feel lead to share it with you. Along with my response as well.

Pakistan

I wish key mein is page ka admin na hota to aj jo kuch hmare mulk me hua us pe comment kar sakta =( Allah bless us & our country and guide us on right track, Ameen.

Dear sir, I respect your comment however, what if Allah says to give yourself and your nation, over to the saving grace of His Son, Jesus Christ?

Will you obey Him?

And as with the Apostle Paul when God asked him why he persecuted him and His followers, what would you say to Him?

I maybe an American but I love and respect all faiths and I am a Christian first and foremost. Will you allow and respect me and my right to keep on praying worshiping and living with my personal convictions of undying love and faith in God, His Son (Jesus Christ) and their Holy Spirit?

If you were here in the United States I would respect you and your personal right to worship God in your own way, would you do the same for me?

Or would you rather be a follower of other radical believers of Islam and force Christians believers to the slaughter? I can tell you this for sure, that is not the God I know. My God tells me to love my neighbor as myself, not to go and kill him for his belief. I present this question this way because here in the United States the Muslim believers of Islam and the Qur’an are free to live and worship as they wish, without fear from the government or it’s people. At least in most cases. We to have our radical leftest idiots who hate any and all peoples. In my book they don’t count for much, but as in your country we to have to contend to their actions as a law abiding country. And their actions will not be talorated. What about you? Or would you rather be a leader for a righteous, loving and forgiving God?

Sincerely, your brother in all things Godly, with sincere devotion and love for my fellow man, no matter where he or she lives…

I have high regards and respect for you and your noble thoughts.
Faiths and Religions are meant to “Caring & Sharing”.
We as a whole need to learn and understand the value and importance of Cool & Patience.
I am not a scholar like you but being a poor learner at least I have learnt that all the Messengers (124,000) of Allah (God) are ought to be Respected by all the Human living on the this planet which are around Seven Billion so far.
I stand prepared for learning.
God bless us all
