Have you ever been saved? Being saved means, well in Acts 16:31 it says They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.” It also says in Romans 10:9 If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Pretty simple right?
The Lambs Book Of Life – Jesus’ book of life. Jesus is the Lamb Of God so when it says the Lambs Book Of Life it means Jesus’ Book Of Life. If you have been saved your name is in the Lambs Book Of Life, but if you name is not in the Lambs Book Of Life then you will be condemned to hell. On the judgement day we will stand before God and he will look in the Lambs Book Of Life to see if your name is in there. If it is then you will stay in heaven with Him if not you will go to hell! The choice is yours.
Wow! Just think in just a few days it will be 2015! Why don’t you set a goal for 2015? Like reading the bible more, or praying more, or going to church regularly etc. It says in James 4:8 Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world.
There are two blogs that I would like to recommend to you. They talk about the bible and God a whole lot, so you should check them out sometime.
Check these out sometime!
Nineteen days ago was my first anniversary with wordpress.com. Have you ever wondered why my name is cupcakegirl10? Well, when I first started wordpress my intentions were to discuss my dream cupcake bakery. But I felt the Lord wanted me to change my blog. I changed it to the Work Of Thy Fingers where I talked about God’s magnificent creation. But, I ended up talking about different topics about God. So, I finally changed it to Bible Talk Lets talk about the B.I.B.L.E!!!
Why do people get cancer? Why do we have to be sick? Why, why , why?
Job 1 ————– Is the story about a man, a righteous man who feared the Lord. His name was Job. Job had everything taken away from him. His cattle , flocks , even his children. But he never cursed God. Think about it have you ever had a loved one get sick or die? Did you ask God why? Did you curse his name? We never want bad things to happen to us, but we have to remember this scene and how God is in control. Its says in Romans 8:28 And we know all things work together for good to them who love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. So if someone is sick or has cancer etc. Just remember God works for the good of those who love him. So God has a purpose he can take bad things and turn them into something good. Like someone getting saved or drawing closer to God. It also says in James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift comes from the father above. Why do we get sick? Why does God make us sick? He doesn’t. God does not make us sick. Sin does. When Adam and Eve disobeyed God sin came into the world. But, when sickness does come upon us God uses it for good. It says in Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.
Has a loved one ever died in your family? You morn and cry right? You should not cry about it forever. Like if a child dies, like an infant for instance it is really hard on you. But, instead of crying you should rejoice! Because that infant or child is in heaven. The bible says that all the children below the age of knowledge will go to heaven. What is the age of knowledge you ask? The bible does not say. But the age of knowledge is when your child starts to understand that he is a sinner and he needs Jesus. If your child can’t understand that yet then he is under the age of knowledge. So,don’t morn when a child or infant or anyone dies rejoice because if you know they were saved then they are in heaven. Don’t wait to tell your child or an adult about Jesus because you will never know when the Lord will call them home.
I just wanted to advise you to watch the video called The Star of Bethlehem. If you are curious about the star or have any questions this is the video to watch. I have the movie and I have watched it two times already and I want to watch it again ,because there is a lot of important info on the video and you forget most of it so its good to have a reminder sometimes. So for Christmas why don’t you ask for the Star of Bethlehem movie?
Do you know why I put a question mark instead of a three on the title? Because we do not know how many kings came to see baby Jesus. The bible never says. But it does say the kings brought three gifts so that is why people think there were three kings because there were three gifts. But, back in the bible times people did not have cars to cross the desert they had camels. Wise men and sometimes people usually traveled in large groups. That is how we know that there was more then one wise man. ( P.S they came to see Jesus when he was around 1-2 years old not when he was a newborn only the shepherds came when he was a newborn.)
What’s Christmas? Why do we celebrate it? What is x-mas all about? Have you ever asked these questions about Christmas before? I used to ask some of them when I was little.
The true meaning of Christmas is pretty simple — Jesus. Jesus is the reason for the season. It tells us here in Luke 1:26-56 about how the angel Gabriel came to a virgin girl named Mary and told her she was gonna have a baby not just any baby she was gonna have Jesus, and in Luke 2:1-40 its talks about how they had to travel to Bethlehem to pay taxes and how there was no room at any of the inns and that the baby had to be born in a barn. That’s the Christmas story. Just read Luke 1:26-56 and Luke 2:1-40 and you have read the Christmas story.
Have you ever wondered why we celebrate Jesus’ birthday on Christmas? I will tell you, people who study history studied on Jesus’ birth and they don’t really know when he was born. But it really does not matter because as long as we celebrate his birthday it does not really matter when he was born.
Why do we call it Christmas? Back in the early church time people used to get together for communion or celebrate Christs birthday. They would call these get togethers masses. So when they celebrated Christs birthday they called it Christs’ mass and over the years we have shorted Christs’ mass to Christmas!
If Christmas is about Jesus and not about the presents or the Christmas tree,then is it still okay to get a Christmas tree and buy presents? Sure it is still okay to buy presents because the presents remind us that even though the presents are cool God gave us the best gift of all – Jesus! It is also okay to put up a Christmas tree because it reminds us of along time ago there were people that worshiped another God not Jesus ,but a false God. They believed that the God dwelled in this big tree in the middle of nowhere,and if anyone cut it down they would be punished. But, there was this one guy who believed in Jesus and decided to cut down the tree. The people watched as the tree came down and nothing happened. Then they all started worshiping the one true God – Jesus! So the tree reminds us that Jesus is the one true God!
X-mas what is that? A lot of you may have heard about the word x-mas before. It is Christmas shorted but notice that the x covers Christ. So what do you think the purpose of the word x-mas is? To take Christ out of Christmas. Just like Happy Holidays. People say Happy Holidays to take Christ out of Christmas as well. So if you know that Jesus is the reason for the season (aka: the reason we celebrate Christmas) then I suggest you start saying Merry Christmas instead of Merry X-mas or Happy Holidays.
Merry Christmas every one!
