“I’m proud to be a child of God”

When Tim Tebow starting to wear “John 3:16” under his eyes, in a few days span the Google was search by 92 MILLION for “John 3:16″…….now, another top athlete share his Faith in Jesus without shame!!!!

I encourage everyone to support the evangelism by athletes……how many Preachers or Pastors can challenge the world with 92 millions questions about Bible? …..look like the preacher athletes did, without pulpit, just by example!!!! “Preach every day, in any situation, and when is need, use also the words.”

God bless them!!!!!

10 Biggest Mistakes People Make on the Mission Field

There's a great deal of responsibility to the kingdom as a missionary for Christ.   There’s a great deal of responsibility to the kingdom as a missionary for Christ. (iStock photo)

ARTICLE BE J. Lee Grady, posted on Charisma Magazine on March 4th, 2015

One of the greatest joys in my life is ministering in foreign countries. Since I surrendered to a call to missions 15 years ago, I’ve visited 29 nations and developed relationships with dozens of pastors and leaders who now consider me their friend and brother. Missions is at the heart of our Christian faith, and I believe every church should be actively engaged in both foreign and local missions so we can advance the gospel of Jesus in our generation.

But just like everything else in life, there’s a right way and a wrong way to engage in mission work. I’ve learned from my own mistakes—and I’ve also seen some sad examples of short-term missions gone awry. If you are considering a short-term or long-term mission trip, avoid these pitfalls:

1. Acting like a spoiled American. If you are traveling to a developing country, here is Rule No. 1: Prepare for delays, cold showers, big bugs and scorpions, power outages, unusual toilets, crazy traffic and strange food. Make a decision before you leave that you won’t let one complaint come out of your mouth. Be flexible and gracious. Focus on the positive, soak in the beauty of the country and come home with a renewed gratitude for your blessings at home.

2. Talking down to people. You are not going overseas to teach poor, ignorant foreigners what you know. If that’s your attitude, do everyone a favor and stay home! You are going to serve. Most of what I know about ministry I learned from humble people I met in other countries. Whether you are teaching, preaching, building orphanages or feeding the poor, get under the people and wash their feet. And expect to learn powerful lessons from the people you are visiting.

3. Building relationships based on money. People in poor countries tend to think all Americans are rich, and they will be tempted to look to us instead of God to provide. Don’t wave money around, don’t flaunt expensive watches or jewelry, and don’t hand out cash to everyone you meet. Let your new friends know you want a real friendship with them that does not hinge on finances.

4. Making demands. I know prosperity preachers who expect royal treatment when they go to foreign countries. One man told his host he needed a hotel that costs $1,000 a night—in a nation where most people live in cramped, Soviet-style apartments. The apostle Paul modeled a different approach, and he was willing to live among people at their level (see 1 Thess. 2:9-10). If Jesus was willing to enter this world in a filthy manger, we should be willing to set aside our expensive tastes.

5. Breaking promises. When you connect deeply with a local pastor or congregation overseas, you will fall in love with them and you will want to do everything possible to help them. But don’t promise things you can’t deliver. Always remind them, and yourself, that we must pray for His provision and wait on Him to answer. And if you do enter into a partnership, always honor the promises you made.

6. Taking team members who are not committed to Jesus. I know of a zealous young woman who went on a mission trip to Africa with her church and ended up sleeping with a guy from that country. How does that happen? Anyone who goes with you on a trip needs a background check and a pastor’s recommendation. Mission trips should never be viewed as opportunities for “religious tourism” by immature people who crave a globetrotting adventure. The behavior of your team members should honor Christ.

7. Working with people overseas without thoroughly investigating them. I get requests almost weekly from foreign pastors who want me to visit their church, support their programs or do evangelistic crusades in their villages. In Pakistan, some unscrupulous Christians troll the Internet looking for churches that will send them money. Some people posing as pastors talk naïve Americans into wiring funds for a trip—and then they vanish. If you are going to do mission work, you will need the gift of discernment. Don’t get bamboozled by a con artist posing as “beloved brother Najib.”

8. Using a “hit and run” approach to missions. When I visit a country I almost always end up going back because I build relationships with ministries. This week I’m on my fourth visit to Barranquilla, Colombia, where I am helping to develop a women’s shelter. Mission work should be a long-term partnership. If your church is planning to start a mission program, don’t just scatter your seed here and there. Prayerfully invest in a few places and let the Holy Spirit connect you with those people for a lifetime.

9. Misrepresenting your work. We laugh about the preacher who was “evangelastically speaking” about the crowds he attracted in Uganda. But exaggeration is lying. There is nothing more obnoxious than a Christian who inflates statistics to draw attention or raise funds. If you build your ministry on half-truths you will have cracks in your foundation. Be honest, be accountable and tell the truth.

10. Focusing on numbers. There is huge pressure in missionary work to prove our effectiveness by counting heads. But God’s kingdom is not about crowds—it is about making disciples (see Matt. 28:19-20). Some of my most powerful moments on the mission field were in small meetings where God changed a few lives forever—and then those people changed more lives. I’m not impressed when someone says 5,000 people prayed to receive Jesus. I want to know if those converts were followed-up and plugged into churches for discipleship.

I hope you will become more passionate about taking the message of Christ to the world. But as you pack your bags for your mission trip, leave your unneeded “baggage” at home and go with a humble, teachable heart.

What Happen AFTER the game:

According to a CBN News, as the green and blue confetti began to fall, and the grid iron of MetLife Stadium became a sea of players, coaches, reporters and cameramen,  Seahawks QB Russell Wilson grabbed some teammates around him, and led them in prayer as they knelt together on the field.

Russell Wilson: “It’s only my second year, but I believe in the guys that we had. I believe…in the coaching staff…it’s just God is so good. He brought me a really long way. It’s unbelievable. It’s kind of surreal to be honest with you. Sitting there holding that trophy up and I’m looking up, I’m just so thankful for everything that I’ve been given.”

Russell Okung: “The Lord allowed me to be here. And I keep saying that all the time, man. With Him there’s purpose man. I’m not just here to exist, I’m here to live. And I’m glad He’s going to use me this way through my platform to bring glory to Him.” 

Amazing story continue…..when come to praying….even “opponents” on the field pray together with the winners despite the lost:

….and without becoming cynical, I ask: Does Broncos not regret because so easily got rid of Tim Tebow?


Scariest Lies in Our World Today…..

Short video-message by Francis Chan…..


Each of us has etched in our minds a very personal picture of where we want to be at age 30, 40, 50, 60. Our images are drawn with the greatest of expectations. However, sometimes our plans and expectations fall short of picture perfect. How do we construct and adopt realistic, yet GREAT, expectations? 

In this series, we’ll take an in-depth look at expectations in marriage, friendships, the marketplace, and our communities.

“…….Among those groups, Kluczynski had listed, were those who believe America was founded on godly principles, Christians who take the Bible literally, and “fundamentalists”.  Kluczynski did not explain what he meant by “fundamentalists” but from the context it was clear he was referring again to those who took the Bible literally or “too seriously.”


While Kluczynski emphasized that sovereign citizens have a right to their beliefs, he was clearly teaching that the groups he had listed should be watched by law enforcement and should be treated with caution because of their potential to assault law enforcement.  Kluczynski explained why he believed these groups were dangerous saying they were angry over the election of a black president.  When someone in the group suggested the failing economy was probably much more to blame, Kluczynski intimated that those who are not going along with the changes in America will need to be controlled by law enforcement.  Kluczynski even later questioned some of the troopers present if they were willing and prepared to confiscate “illegal” weapons if ordered to……..”

Dear Family, Friends and Loving Supporters,

At approximately 1:30 AM (Saturday, March 2nd) our sweet Mitchell passed away.

In the hours leading up to his passing we gathered around him as a family, spoke with him, told him how much we loved him, kissed him, cuddled and loved this young man with all that we had. We were grateful that he was able to squeeze our hands to acknowledge he was hearing us. We will miss our baby so very much. Mitchell, while weak in body was giant in spirit.

Last week Mitchell told me that his favorite day is Friday saying it “felt special” because we usually dedicated that evening to family. So in honor of our boy we had our weekly Friday night “den party” but this time in his room. We all spoke softly as we watched a movie and enjoyed each other’s company. Mitchell was fading throughout the night, but he kept giving us hand squeeze signals that he was with us and we are sure he loved having us all spend time with him.

Just as I had drifted off to sleep at around 1:00AM I had an impression that I should formally tuck him in (something he asks me to do every night). I got up from the floor, pulled his blanket over his chest, kissed his forehead and whispered into his ear, “Mitchie, this is Dad. I am tucking you in, just as you like it. Remember what we talked about … don’t be afraid, everything is okay. I love you, son. So very much.” With that, I kissed him on the forehead a few more times, pressed my face against his and squeezed his hand. Mitchell passed away in less than an hour. I was so grateful to hear that impression and that I acted on it. I would hope that he heard my voice and recognized he had one last tuck and cuddle with his daddy and that it brought him peace and assurance.

Natalie spent the entire evening cradling and caressing her son and assuring him that he was okay and that he was safe in her arms. She never left his side. Natalie has been a valiant and loving mother to her son. I took this photo of Natalie and Mitch last night just before midnight. She loved him with all that she had and served him even more.

In the coming days, weeks and months we will be sharing some events along Mitchell’s Journey that have strengthened our faith in God, widened our view of suffering, tender experiences with Mitch, things we learned from Mitchell and some of the remarkable things we learned about you, Mitchell’s Journey followers.

We want to thank all of you who reached out to our boy to offer love and support. Your packages and letters of encouragement made him feel special. Your notes on this Facebook page were read to him daily and it made him feel that he wasn’t alone. From the bottom of our hearts we thank you.

Our hearts are heavy with sorrow, but filled with gratitude and peace. Mitchell’s Journey is not over: it has only just begun … in this life and the life after.


Don’t Shoot the Wounded…

Galatians 6: 1-3 (The Message)
Live creatively, friends. If someone falls into sin, forgiving restore him, saving your critical comments for yourself. You might be needing forgiveness before the day’s out. Stop down and reach out to those who are oppressed. Share their burdens, and so complete Christ’s law. If you think you are too good for that, you are badly deceived.

The Marriage and The Bible……

Jose Luciano

Article by Jose Luciano, El Paso Texas

“What does the Bible say about gay marriage / same sex marriage?”

Whenever the Bible mentions marriage, it is between a male and a female. The first mention of marriage, Genesis 2:24, describes it as a man leaving his parents and being united to his wife. In passages that contain instructions regarding marriage, such as 1 Corinthians 7:2-16 and Ephesians 5:23-33, the Bible clearly identifies marriage as being between a man and a woman. Biblically speaking, marriage is the lifetime union of a man and a woman, primarily for the purpose of building a family and providing a stable environment for that family.

The Bible alone, however, does not have to be used to demonstrate this understanding of marriage. The biblical viewpoint of marriage has been the universal understanding of marriage in every human civilization in world history. History argues against gay marriage. Modern secular psychology recognizes that men and women are psychologically and emotionally designed to complement one another. In regard to the family, psychologists contend that a union between a man and woman in which both spouses serve as good gender role models is the best environment in which to raise well-adjusted children. Psychology argues against gay marriage. In nature/physicality, clearly, men and women were designed to “fit” together sexually. With the “natural” purpose of sexual intercourse being procreation, clearly only a sexual relationship between a man and a woman can fulfill this purpose. Nature argues against gay marriage.

So, if the Bible, history, psychology, and nature all argue for marriage being between a man and a woman—why is there such a controversy today? Why are those who are opposed to gay marriage/same-sex marriage labeled as hateful, intolerant bigots, no matter how respectfully the opposition is presented? Why is the gay rights movement so aggressively pushing for gay marriage/same-sex marriage when most people, religious and non-religious, are supportive of—or at least far less opposed to—gay couples having all the same legal rights as married couples with some form of civil union?

The answer, according to the Bible, is that everyone inherently knows that homosexuality is immoral and unnatural, and the only way to suppress this inherent knowledge is by normalizing homosexuality and attacking any and all opposition to it. The best way to normalize homosexuality is by placing gay marriage/same-sex marriage on an equal plane with traditional opposite-gender marriage. Romans 1:18-32 illustrates this. The truth is known because God has made it plain. The truth is rejected and replaced with a lie. The lie is then promoted and the truth suppressed and attacked. The vehemence and anger expressed by many in the gay rights movement to any who oppose them is, in fact, an indication that they know their position is indefensible. Trying to overcome a weak position by raising your voice is the oldest trick in the debating book. There is perhaps no more accurate description of the modern gay rights agenda than Romans 1:31, “they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless.”

To give sanction to gay marriage/same-sex marriage would be to give approval to the homosexual lifestyle, which the Bible clearly and consistently condemns as sinful. Christians should stand firmly against the idea of gay marriage/same-sex marriage. Further, there are strong and logical arguments against gay marriage/same-sex marriage from contexts completely separated from the Bible. One does not have to be an evangelical Christian to recognize that marriage is between a man and a woman.

According to the Bible, marriage is ordained by God to be between a man and a woman (Genesis 2:21-24; Matthew 19:4-6). Gay marriage/same-sex marriage is a perversion of the institution of marriage and an offense to the God who created marriage. As Christians, we are not to condone or ignore sin. Rather, we are to share the love of God and the forgiveness of sins that is available to all, including homosexuals, through Jesus Christ. We are to speak the truth in love (Ephesians 4:15) and contend for truth with “gentleness and respect” (1 Peter 3:15). As Christians, when we make a stand for truth and the result is personal attacks, insults, and persecution, we should remember the words of Jesus: “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you” (John 15:18-19).

Sarbatoarea Nasterii Domnului la Betel, Bucuresti…

In acest an Sarbatoarea Nasterii Domnului Isus m-a prins in Romania. Uneori lucrarea de misiune iti rezerva si acest fel de imprejurari dar Dumnezeu nu ramane niciodata mai prejos. Daca familia mea a acceptat aceasta situatie si au sarbatorit fara mine in Phoenix, familia Domnului m-a inconjurat cu dragoste si a incercat sa faca lipsa cat mai usor posibila. Familia Ianovici s-a ridicat peste orice asteptari si partasia cu dansii nu se va uita usor, daca se uita vreodata, ceea ce totusi este putin probabil sa se intample. Dumnezeu are oamenii Lui pe care ii foloseste minunat si ne arata ca si astazi sunt oameni care ce au pe buze au si in inima. Dumnezeu sa binecuvanteze minunata familie Ianovici si anul 2013 sa fie un an plin de impliniri si satisfactii in lucrarea la care sunt chemati.

Alaturi de cateva fotografii nemuritoare este adaugat si predica Pastorului Florin Ianovici din Seara de Ajun. Un mesaj plin de invataturi si provocari la o adevarata schimbare in viata de credinta.

Dumnezeu sa binecuvinteze toti cititorii si ascultatorii mesajelor postate pe acest blog.

Pastorul Florin Ianovici – Graz, Wien, Linz 14-16 Dec. 2012


din volumul “Slujitorul adevarat, Slujitorul care schimba lumea”

   Image source: http://www.offthebeatenpathministries.com/2011_05_01_archive.html

Toti slujitorii Domnului trebuie sa aiba limite care nu vor fi depasite, indiferent de circumstante sau situatii. Eu stiu sigur ce vreau sa fac si ce vreau sa fiu.

     As vrea sa-mi pastrez integritatea morala ca si Iosif cand si-a lasat haina in mana nevestei lui Potifar.

     As vrea sa am respectul pentru robii Domnului ca si David cand l-a gasit pe Saul dormind in pestera si a refuzat sa-l omoare.

     As vrea sa fiu flamand pentru Dumnezeu cum au fost Pavel si David; cand Pavel a zis: “Si sa-L cunosc pe El si puterea invierii Lui si partasia suferintelor Lui si sa ma fac asemenea cu moartea Lui” (Filipeni 3:10); iar David a zis: “Cum doreste un cerb izvoarele de apa, asa te doreste sufletul meu pe tine, Dumnezeule!” (Psalmul 42:1).

     As vrea sa am putere sa daram intariturile celui rau ca si Samson cand a daramat stalpii templului filistenilor.

     As vrea sa fac numai decizii corecte ca si Elisei cand a fost intrebat de Ilie ce vrea: “…te rog sa vina peste mine o indoita masura din duhul tau!” (2 Imparati 2:9).

     As vrea sa umblu cu Dumnezeu ca si Enoh: “Enoh a umblat cu Dumnezeu, apoi nu s-a mai vazut, pentru ca l-a luat Dumnezeu.” (Genesa 5:24).

     As vrea sa-mi mentin integritatea ca si Iov cand a zis: “…dar imi voi apara purtarea in fata Lui.” (Iov 13:15). Iov a fost determinat sa continue ceea ce a facut tot timpul inainte sa-si piarda familia, sanatatea, bogatiile si influenta. El a declarat ca nimic nu i se poate intampla acum incat sa schimbe ce a fost sau cum a trait. Iov a spus: “ Satano, eu am sa continui sa fac ce am facut intotdeauna. M-am rugat si voi continua sa ma rog. Am cantat si voi continua sa cant. L-am laudat pe Dumnezeu si voi continua sa-L laud. M-am increzut in El si voi continua sa ma incred numai in El.”

     Daniel a facut acelasi lucru cand a aflat ca daca se va ruga in continuare va fi aruncat in groapa cu lei. El se putea ruga in spatele geamurilor inchise. Dumnezeu L-ar fi auzit si daca se ruga in soapta. Dar Daniel a inteles ca o rugaciune cu geamurile inchise va fi o victorie a dusmanilor sai. In fond, el a zis: “Voi continua sa fac ceea ce am facut intotdeauna si nu-l voi lasa pe diavol sa-mi schimbe comportamentul” si a facut ce a zis. A deschis geamurile larg si a inceput sa se roage. Cand te gasesti in vale, in furtuna, in batalie cu cel rau, orisiunde te-ai afla, deschide larg geamurile si incepe sa te rogi.

     As vrea sa fiu inflacarat pentru Dumnezeu ca si Ieremia cand a zis: “….iata ca in inima mea este un foc mistuitor, inchis in oasele mele.” (Ieremia 20:9).

     As vrea sa am curajul lui Sadrac, Meshac si Abednego care au refuzat sa se inchine unui chip cioplit chiar daca sub ochii lor sau inchinat toti din jur chipului facut de Nebucadnetar.

     As vrea sa-mi pastrez taria ca si Caleb, a carui atitudine a fost: “ …sunt la fel de puternic astazi cum am fost cu 45 de ani in urma. Da-mi muntele acela plin cu uriasi. Sunt pregatit pentru o noua provocare…” (Iosua 14:10-12).

     As vrea sa fiu omul care face diferenta in jurul meu. As vrea ca in modul cel mai autentic viata mea sa fie importanta in fata lui Dumnezeu. Sunt disperat pentru Dumnezeu, sunt disperat pentru o trezire originala, disperat sa-I vad Gloria, disperat sa-I simt Prezenta si Puterea.

     Dumnezeu te-a chemat sa fii un om care face diferenta in jurul tau. Oriunde te-ai afla, la munte sau in vale sau pe o insula, in oras sau la tara. Nu conteaza locul. Dumnezeu doreste ca sa-ti de-a ungerea divina, sa aduci trezire in locul unde te gasesti.

     Fiecare slujitor ar trebui sa poata sa spuna impreuna cu apostolul Pavel ca l-a urmat pe Hristos in totalitate si i-a urmat toate sfaturile. Pavel spunea: “De aceea va marturisesc astazi, ca sunt curat de sangele tuturor” (Fapte 20:26).

     Ce ai fi dispus sa faci pentru Dumnezeu?

Te-ai opri pentru un orb cersetor pe marginea drumului? Isus a facut-o. Multimea incerca sa astupe strigatele cersetorului, dar Isus i-a auzit plansul si a zis: “Aduceti-l la mine”.

     Ai fi in stare sa te indepartezi de la drumul tau planificat numai ca sa vorbesti cu o femeie (Samariteanca de la fantana) straina, casatorita de 5 ori si traieste cu al 6-lea care nici macar nu-i este sot? Isus a facut-o.

     Suferi atat de mult pentru sufletele nemantuite incat umbli de-a lungul drumurilor si vailor sa aduci suflete la Isus? Isus ne-a poruncit sa o facem.

     Suferi atat de mult pentru lacrimile vreunui prieten infirm incat sa desfaci acoperisul casei ca sa-l aduci in prezenta Domnului? Patru oameni au facut aceasta.

     Ai putea sa lasi stana cu 99 de oi in siguranta si sa mergi in intunericul noptii plina de pericole ca sa cauti oaia ratacita? Pastorul cel bun a facut-o.

     Ai putea sa te opresti pe drumul Ierihonului pentru o victima ranita, batuta, in pragul mortii, sa ii alini suferinta si apoi sa platesti la un hangiu sa-l ingrijeasca pana se face bine? Samariteanul cel milos a facut-o.

     Ai putea sa bati la usa unui judecator nedrept pana iti raspunde si-ti rezolva problema? Vaduva staruitoare a facut-o.

     Daca ai un fiu ratacitor care ti-a luat banii pentru care niciodata nu a muncit, i-a cheltuit cu femeile usoare, dar in sfarsit se intoarce acasa smerit, ii iesi in intampinare alergand, il imbratisezi sincer, tai vitelul cel ingrasat si organizezi o petrecere pentru intoarcerea lui? Tatal acestui fiu a facut-o.

     Iti construiesti casa si slujirea pe Stanca si nu pe nisip? Omul intelept a facut-o.



Elf on the Shelf? As Christian parents, why would some use a demonic diety such as this “cute” thing to control and terrorize their children into obedience in order to look forward to ushering in the chief demon of the season also known as “Santa Claus” ???” By Betty Covert Jesus

“You won’t find any reference to Santa in the Bible, but you will find him in most “Christian” homes and church dramas. Another thing of interest is this: Take the word SANTA, remove the “N” and place at the end…now you have what he really represents — SATAN.” By Jack Kirkland
