(Mt. 6:34) “Therefore don’t be anxious for tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Each day’s own evil is sufficient.”
Note that Jesus does not say “don’t do planning for the future” as some may interpret.
Not to be anxious for tomorrow means not to do short term planning (“tomorrow”) in expense of long term planning, but to concentrate on long-term goals. This may mean to invest into education, science, charity, etc.
Many preachers preach that we should choose the girl which God selects us to be together with.
Isn’t this girl just that girl about which the man prays to God the more than for other girls? Don’t our prayers set our destiny? (Well, God may sometimes prepare for us a destiny which we didn’t dare pray for.)
And remember that true believers always choose believing girls for themselves.
Some Christian preachers teach: “You should not meditate (in the sense of eastern religions), because a part of meditation act is not-to-think.”
I doubt this:
(Matthew 24:44) “Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.”
(Luke 12:40) “Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.”
Jesus comes to us when you do not think! Maybe we should not follow eastern religions in how to meditate, but we should sometimes not to think, so that Jesus to come to us.
Some Christians often pronounce blood of Christ on something or somebody.
Just a minute ago I’ve got the following thought (now quite sure if it’s right):
Blood of Christ can be dangerous: (1Cor. 11:29-30) “For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy way eats and drinks judgment to himself, if he doesn’t discern the Lord’s body. For this cause many among you are weak and sickly, and not a few sleep.”
The above states that blood of Christ is dangerous for unbelievers.
So shall we pronounce blood of Christ on our unbelieving (not yet born again) friends? I think we should not, not to make then weak and sickly.
(Hebrews 2:17-18) “
17 Therefore he was obligated in all things to be made like his brothers, that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make atonement for the sins of the people. 18 For in that he himself has suffered being tempted, he is able to help those who are tempted.”
Have you ever wondered about Heb. 2:18? Jesus already knows all what means that He knows all situations. Isn’t it enough to help those who are tempted? why he himself should be tempted in order to help others? This looks like a very difficult question.
I do not know the answer in details but propose this explanation:
Jesus needs to suffer and be tempted himself so that when He helps somebody, the opposition would not be able to say: He tries to help tempted persons which he himself was not tempted and did not suffered.
It is only a possible theory. I welcome you to discuss in comments to this blog post possible explanations.
Once I saw a night dream:
There is a city and there are 10 identical metallic glancing like aluminium or something like that church buildings, each in form of a sphere segment, every for 20000 seats. I am the main pastor of this church. Every Sunday I preach in these ten buildings (I saw myself at the scene of one of the buildings). Note that (and this is the most wonderful thing in this revelation) in each of the 10 churches I tell different sermons. That’s a weird dream as I didn’t think about anything like that.
Other: On the basis of Bible study I concluded that I am a “great” (that is very talented) priest and that I must go to Tanzania and living there in tent to preach; in my destiny there are a giant religious ministry and great money. The details of this “prophecy” didn’t match the reality and I concluded that my method of interpretation of Bible was wrong.
After some time after going through a spiritual “wilderness” (when I even didn’t visit a church) I returned to my previous pursuit: math research and computers. I (although having not scientific degree) am a prominent mathematician. I thought I should not be a church minister (however I research and spread in Internet biblical knowledge), because (as I think) my research is worth trillion dollars and this is more important than church service.
But today I remembered this dream. And I thought: what if this is indeed a true vision?
I want to give you a practical advice about filling with Holy Spirit. It is not from Bible, it is from my experience.
When you pray or glorify God, raise your hands to be filled with Holy Spirit:
Raise your hands.
After this close your hands as shown on this picture:
Close your hands to keep the anointment.
This is to prevent the anointment to flow away from your body through your hands. Keep the anointment in your hands.
