Mountains – Yahweh’s Nature

“In His hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are His also. The sea is His, for he made it, and His hands formed the dry land.” – Psalm 95:4-5

Make me an arrow
Put me in your bow
Pull back and let go
And send me wherever you want me to go
I’ll be your shadow
You lead I’ll follow you

 

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.
– Psalm 127:3-5

He makes his messengers winds, his ministers a flaming fire. – Psalm 104:4

And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. – Mark 16:15

Pentecost

_1110269fire

The Coming of the Holy Spirit

When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested[a] on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men from every nation under heaven. And at this sound the multitude came together, and they were bewildered, because each one was hearing them speak in his own language. And they were amazed and astonished, saying, “Are not all these who are speaking Galileans? And how is it that we hear, each of us in his own native language? Parthians and Medes and Elamites and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya belonging to Cyrene, and visitors from Rome, 11 both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabians—we hear them telling in our own tongues the mighty works of God.” 12 And all were amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “What does this mean?” 13 But others mocking said, “They are filled with new wine.”

Peter’s Sermon at Pentecost

14 But Peter, standing with the eleven, lifted up his voice and addressed them: “Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and give ear to my words. 15 For these people are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day.[b] 16 But this is what was uttered through the prophet Joel:

17 “‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares,
that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh,
and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
    and your young men shall see visions,
    and your old men shall dream dreams;
18 even on my male servants[c] and female servants
    in those days I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy.
19 And I will show wonders in the heavens above
    and signs on the earth below,
    blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke;
20 the sun shall be turned to darkness
    and the moon to blood,
    before the day of the Lord comes, the great and magnificent day.
21 And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.’

Have a blessed Pentecost Sunday

The Lutheran Charismatic Renewal (soundshoremedia)

Below is a link to a very good blog article. If you’re Lutheran/Charismatic/Pentecostal it is well worth the read, to learn about the history of and how the second wave of Charismatic-ism was effective on Lutheran congregants. It is beautifully written, any lay person should be able to read it.

The Meaning of a Movement: the Lutheran Charismatic Renewal

Be Aware…

…Don’t assume every ‘Christian’ is a Christian.

I found a group on Facebook that looked really interesting; for ex-transgenders who afterwards found Jesus, but as I read on the description I then hit a bump…
“If you’re interested in joining please give me some details about your life as a transgendered person who is now seeking Jesus. PS: I do not follow churches or read the bible much and I do not listen to music or radio or watch TV but I can be found online with my many Jesus following friends. May God bless you too.”

I don’t really know what to say about the church bit, but if you come across any organisation where their leaders say “I don’t read the Bible much” it is an organisation to be AVOIDED. They may seem nice but they could distract you from the the real faith!
