I know I am not the perfect person to tell you about the bible because I am just an ordinary sinful person. But just like any other priests and pastors or anyone preaching you about God, they are not perfect as well. Nobody’s perfect except Jesus Christ because He is the Son of God and He was made perfect and sinless. But any kind of preachers make mistakes and have their own sins, but we listen to them, right? Not because they are sinless or perfect, but because it is their calling, it is their profession and they have much deeper understanding about the bible. But any ordinary person like me or you can actually share about the Word of God in any way we can, because we are all God’s children. Do not be ashamed! Especially if you had this kind of awesome experience in your life… Share it to the world so others would know God is real! Yes, I have heard some people said straight to my face and on my back, oh there she goes again preaching about the bible as if she’s clean or whatever! I am not and I don’t pretend to be. I am not even asking anything from you for doing this or for encouraging you to read the bible, so don’t be bothered about my personal life or how I live. This is not about me or you, this is about sharing God’s love. I guess that is the real problem with us and that’s why we can’t connect to each other. We easily judge people by the way we think, not even knowing or acknowledging our own faults. So let’s try to change that. Listen first and then talk. We may encounter unpleasant people everyday but remember just like ourselves we are battling our own struggles. If we don’t know what it is, then just pray instead. Refrain from gossiping, spread the gospel instead.
Don’t look at my posts about bible verses as if it came from me…It’s not like that. Look at the bible verses or my sharing online as if God is talking straight to you. He is just using me to reach out to you. If I will just keep this to myself I would be afraid that God might tell me in the end, how come I didn’t share this understanding to others? So, why not. That’s why I am doing this. I am more afraid of His judgment than any one else on earth. I would appreciate who would care to listen but most of you will not for sure, for we live in a very super “busy” world now, that separates us from above and we totally forget to pray and look up that Our Father in heaven is watching over us, waiting for our attention. I know some may ignore me and think I am crazy but it’s okay. I don’t mind at all because I know now that in the end, only God can judge me for everything I have done good and bad. You may think I am not fit or worthy of this, but I won’t be bothered for as long as I live, from the time I held the bible I will do my very best to reach out to you. I will keep encouraging you to read the bible and I will share everything I know and understand. It’s such a joy sharing the good news. It’s now all up to you to give it a try or simply forget about it.
What I can tell you right now is that the ‘end time’ might be near and we have to work hard for our salvation before it’s too late. It is written that Jesus will come again…though we don’t know, nobody knows exactly when, it could be later, tomorrow or after thousand years. But it’s better to be ready than sorry. And with all these terrible things going on around the world day after day, I think the signs are getting pretty obvious.
Here’s the thing I did not understand before, that whether we are still alive or already dead by the time Jesus finally returns, we (living and dead) just all have the same judgment day…”the last day.” Before, I admit I don’t care about the second coming because my thoughts were, it’s not gonna happen soon or I’m pretty sure I’m already dead by then, I am sinful and heaven is not for sinners like me. But I was very wrong…there is no escape! Everyone is a sinner but God says there is eternal life even thou we are sinners. We just need to understand what it really means. So even dead people are still waiting for the judgment day to enter eternal life, because that will only happen when Jesus finally returns. And If there is eternal life there is eternal punishment as well. So think about it, which eternity we want to belong. I did not understand yet what salvation really means. I did not understand yet why we say Jesus is Our Savior until I opened the bible! But, I will explain and share that in my next blog…
“We tell you this directly from the Lord:
We who are still living when the Lord returns, will not meet him ahead of those who have died. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God.
First, the Christians who have died will rise from their graves. Then together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever.”
(1 Thessalonians 4:15-17)
