Why Christians Give
The preaching of the Gospel is free to all non-beleivers. Christians, on the other hand, have been entrusted by God to participate through financial and material giving in the work of the Gospel. Since the time of the first churches mentioned in the New testament, Christians have given financial support principally for three major reasons:
1. Preach the Word — to fulfill their part in the mandate of God for every believer to preach the Gospel to all nations. By giving, the Leer más
2. To Work for their Food — unlike the lost world around them, the word of God is the daily necessary spiritual food of the believer. Jesus commanded all who eat to work for their spiritual food and place the cost of it high above any natural sustenance. [see: John 6.27, 1Corinthians 9.11, Galatians 6.6]
3. The Promised Blessing — God has promised to abundantly bless those who participate in the work of preaching the Gospel message to the world by giving freely of a cheerful heart in faith. [Malachi 3.10, 2Corinthians 9.7-8]
The Words of This Live Volume 1— Every morning a new day dawns bringing with it a unique set of challenges and circumstances, requiring faith and wisdom to meet its needs. Jesus set the standard in His own earthly ministry embracing this distinctiveness of each day by dispersing His teaching over a wide range of topics, which equipped His followers with a broad range of wisdom and faith in a relatively short period of time.

Healing the mind — not only does the suffering of a sick mind choke the life out of a person, a wounded and exhausted soul cannot function properly bringing on unforeseen circumstances. The mind and soul, like a broken leg or an infected lung, cannot Leer más

Verse of the Day – jonathanblais.com the words of this life
- Divine Transformationby L. Jonathan Blais on November 25, 2021
The men God has chosen to showcase in the Bible were all men who had undergone amazing transformation. This is the stuff of the true Christian life. All who know God and walk in communion with Him will, like Samson, Moses and Elijah become larger than life figures through spiritual regeneration. In the Old Testament, it was all about the Law of Moses. Now, in the New Testament, it’s all about […]
- Jehovah Shammahby L. Jonathan Blais on November 21, 2021
If God is always present, why is it so hard to know Him? God is here… the question is where are you? Sadly, most of us are lost somewhere in our thoughts, remorsing over some past traumatic incident or artfully scheming some shrewd vanity in the future. The great dilemma of the human condition is our habitual absence from one another and from the presence of God. Knowing God will remain a […]
- From Darkness to Lightby L. Jonathan Blais on November 18, 2021
If Satan has been defeated, why must Christians continue to fight against him? The defeat of Satan by Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary means that the devil has no more power, authority or right to subjugate mankind. Through knowledge and faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the kingdom of evil is left completely powerless over man. The Bible says ~ “For this purpose the Son of God was […]

It is time for those who are spiritual among us to sit down, but not just anywhere. I want you to find your throne, take your place on it, and get to work, reigning in life as scripture says. Numerous times the phrase ‘Jesus sat down’ appears in the Bible. The significance of what is meant by these simple three words is monumental for every believer. Let’s have a look at what the book of Hebrews has to say about this expression. ~ “Now [this is] the main point of the things we are saying: We have such a High Priest, who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens” (Hebrews 8.1).

The Completed Work
So, what does it mean when it says that ‘Jesus sat down’? Let’s have a look at another example in the book of Colossians. ~ “If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God” (Colossians 3.1). When scripture indicates that Christ is ‘sitting,’ it is referring to the fact that everything is done. Christ, who is the Servant of the Lord, has completed all of the work of His earthly mission of redemption and therefore has sat down at the right hand of God. In John 17.4, Jesus said ~ “I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do” (John 17.4).
“It Is Finished!”
As He hung on the cross, Jesus said, “It is Finished!” (John19.30) meaning all of His earthly work had been completed successfully. The work of Christ’s redemption was not finished until He was ~ “…seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens” (Hebrews 8.1). After His work on the cross was completed, the King of Kings went to work in Hades, where He satisfied every legal claim of the Supreme Court of the Universe, every demand possible that could be raised against mankind. Luke writes about this in the book of Acts, saying ~ “He, foreseeing this, spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ, that His soul was not left in Hades, nor did His flesh see corruption” (Acts 2.31).
The Most Holy Place
Having completed three days and three nights in the dark regions and having overcome every demon in hell, He then rose from the dead, and on His way to the throne He met Mary Magdalena and said to her ~ “Jesus said to her, ‘Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, “I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and [to] My God and your God”’” (John 20.17). After completing His work in the dark recesses of Hades, Messiah ascended to ‘the Most Holy Place,’ not that which was made with hands—no, He ascended into the true Most Holy Place, which is in heaven. ~ “But Christ came [as] High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation. Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption” (Hebrews 9.11-12).
