Word for the day by Christian Education Forum

  We believe in the Lord who will come again 1 Thessalonians  4:13-18 Vs 17 “After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever”. Every believer in Jesus Christ has this glorious hope that one day Jesus is coming back, and we will be caught up in the air to meet Him. This was a promise He gave to His followers while He was in this world. All the prophecies in the Old Testament about the first coming of Jesus into the world were fulfilled. So, everything written about His second coming will also be fulfilled at the appointed time. We don’t know the exact date and time. About 2000 years ago, the Word became flesh and lived among us. He became an atoning sacrifice for the sins of His creation. Those who believe in Him will be saved. He will come again to receive those who are dedicated to Himself. There are two parts to His second coming. In the first part, Jesus will come in the cl

  Jesus is right behind you Matt 25:31-40 In Wales, there was a significant renaissance about 150 years ago. To share the gospel, several missionaries traveled to northeast India. There were numerous savage and violent head-hunting tribes living in the Assam region. A team of missionaries from the American Baptist Missions entered these violent and antagonistic villages and preached the gospel of love, peace, and hope in Jesus Christ. They were obviously unwelcome. A man, his wife, and their two kids were all converted, by one missionary. Many locals started to convert to Christianity because of this man's contagious faith. The village chief got angry and summoned all the villagers. He then called the family who had first converted to renounce their faith publicly or face execution. Moved by the Holy Spirit, the man said, “I have decided to follow Jesus.” The chief ordered his archers to arrow down the two children. Then, as both boys lay twitching on the floor, the chief asked, “W

  We believe in the Lord who will come again Acts 1:1-11 “----- This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.” (Vs 11-b) Believers take great comfort from our Savior’s promise that He will come back with glory. The scriptures clearly teach us the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He will return to the earth, in the same way, He ascended into heaven.  At Christ’s second coming, He will fulfill the remaining promises/prophesies found in the Word of God. Jesus came the first time to suffer and die on the cross so that we can be saved from eternal condemnation. But death could not contain him; he rose from the dead and He is Alive and will come again as the King of Kings. That is His Promise and our living hope. In Matthew chapter 16 we read “For the Son of Man is going to come in His Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done” (V 27).  Yes, he is going

  We believe in the Lord who will come again Exodus 3: 1-15 God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.’” – Exodus 3:15 NIV The account of the Israelite Exodus from Egypt in the Bible places Moses, a seemingly ordinary person, at the forefront of God’s escape plan for His people. At the beginning of Exodus 3, we find Moses busy tending to the flock of his father-in-law, Jethro. While this may sound rather uneventful, little did he know that the scene was set for his life’s true mission and purpose to unfold. In the midst of a burning bush, God appeared to Moses. He appointed Moses, an 80-year-old at this point, to lead the oppressed Israelites out of hand of the Egyptians. Moses, mired in uncertainty, expressed his uncertainty with respect to his new task. God quickly reassured Moses that he will not be going alone. This is a story that we are all too familiar with. However, what we may fail to recognize is that God’s peop

  We believe in the Lord who will come again Hebrews 9:24-28 Hebrews 9:28 “So Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and He will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for Him.” ‘Life after Death’ is one of the axioms of Christian faith. Lord Jesus Christ during His ministry on earth declared it clearly to His disciples. When there was an argument between Sadducees and Pharisees with regard to ‘life after death’, Jesus absolutely cleared their doubts by declaring “..For He is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto Him.” – Luke 20:38.     We can see in many places in the Old Testament, the evidence for the theory of the resurrection of the dead. The Book of Daniel is considered parallel to the Book of Revelation with respect to prophecy. Daniel prophesied that the angel declared to him “…and will rise to your inheritance at the end of the days.” -Daniel 12:13. So there is no room in Christian faith t

  THE PHYSICIAN FOR SINNERS  Matthew 9:9-13 Matthew 9:13b “For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” Matthew 9:9-13 begins with Jesus calling Matthew, a tax collector, to follow Him as His disciple. Soon, Jesus and His disciples are having dinner in Matthew’s home with many tax collectors and others labeled as “sinners.” In answer to a question from the Pharisees about why Jesus would eat with these people, He responds that the sick need a doctor and not the healthy. Jesus declares that He has come to call sinners and not the righteous.     Jesus did not only call Matthew to follow him and be his disciple, he actually sat at a table with men and women like Matthew – tax collectors and sinners and ate his meal. Tax collectors had a poor reputation among Jews.  They were considered traitors because their occupation aligned them with the hated Roman Empire.  Tax collectors were known for exacting taxes beyond the required amount so that they could pocket the excess money.
