brOKen – Part 1

Part 1 – Vision for restoration

Many times we are completely broken and when people ask “How are you?” we answer, “I’m OK!”. We can be motivated by one of two attitudes, either we want to hide our true condition or we are speaking by faith. 

Have you ever wondered, “Why do bad things happen to good people?”

Every thinking person grapples with this question of life. And believers are no exception. All of us who know, love and trust Christ are still faced with the reality of suffering, evil, pain and injustice that is present in the world. And if we were totally honest, all of us would have to admit there have been times when:

Who Cares?

By Passion Centre,

Who Cares?

Psalms 142:4 “no man cared for my soul.”

This Bible verse is really disturbing. Have you ever been in a situation were you think that nobody cares about you? The lack of care can be the result of an absence of a shepherd in your life. It also can be a reflection of a spiritual problem of isolation.

David was hiding in a cave when he did this Prayer.

Lack of compassion is a disease that has attacked the Church and we are unable to see the world through the eyes of Jesus

Matthew 9:36-38
When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”

Deliver me from the hand of strange children

By Passion Centre,

Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children

Psalm 144:11,12
11 Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood:
12  That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace:

King David suffered because of his children. In this psalm he asked the Lord to deliver him from the hand of strange children.

Notice a few things that happened in David’s family:
– One of his sons raped and defiled one of his daughters (II Samuel 13:1-20).
– In response, another son murders the brother who raped his sister (II Samuel 13:21-36).
– The son that murdered his brother, eventually rebelled against his father (II Samuel 15: 7-12).

Keep the Faith

By Passion Centre,

Keep the Faith

What is the most important thing you can keep in life?

“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.”― Dr. Seuss

2 Timothy 4:7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

The word translated “kept” means “to keep by guarding, to watch over.” The Greek word for “faith” is pistis, which has to do with a conviction based on hearing (cf. Romans 10:17). Paul’s trust in Jesus never wavered. His faith was as solid on the day of his death as it had been the moment he first believed on the Damascus road when he encountered Jesus(Acts 9:3).

Comment vaincre l’esprit de Intimidation

By Passion Centre,

Comment vaincre l’esprit de Intimidation

I. «petit à tes propres yeux…»

1 Samuel 15:17
 Samuel dit: «Alors que tu étais petit à tes propres yeux, n’es-tu pas devenu le chef des tribus d’Israël et l’Eternel ne t’a-t-il pas désigné par onction pour que tu sois roi sur Israël?

A. Saul et l’esprit de Intimidation

  1. Saul fut le premier roi d’Israël et a combattu avec un esprit qui infecte même les hommes qui accomplissent de grandes victoires: l’esprit d’intimidation. Tel est l’esprit de timidité, la peur, l’infériorité et conduire à un comportement destructeur.
  2. Le prophète Samuel a mentionné que Saül avait vu soit meme comme «petit à ses propres yeux”. Samuel ne se réfère positivement à la vie de Saül, mais négativement. Saul a souffert de rejet de soi à partir du moment où Dieu l’a appelé à être roi (1 Samuel 9:21). Il pensa qu’il était la plus petite tribu de la plus petite famille.

1 Samuel 9
17 Lorsque Samuel eut aperçu Saül, l’Eternel lui dit: «Voici l’homme dont je t’ai parlé, c’est lui qui régnera sur mon peuple.»

21 Saül répondit: «Ne suis-je pas benjaminite, membre de l’une des plus petites tribus d’Israël, et mon clan n’est-il pas le plus insignifiant de tous ceux que compte la tribu de Benjamin? Pourquoi donc me tiens-tu ce discours?»

7 Functions of the Blood

By Passion Centre,

7 Functions of the Blood

There are seven life functions in the blood of JESUS CHRIST!

1. Oxygen – Life

•   The red blood cells transport oxygen from respiratory structures (lungs) to the cells of the body.
•   The blood of the lamb transports the breath of life into out spiritual cells so we can truly live and continue living for all eternity.

Leviticus 17:11
“For the life of the creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one’s life.”

2. Cleansing – Holiness

•   The blood transports metabolic wastes from each cell to organs that excrete them, even drugs.
•   The blood of the lamb cleanses us spiritually and removes all poisonous wastes from the world that will kill us.

1 John 1:7
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all [Or every] sin

3. Nutrition – Nourishment

•   The blood transports nutrients from the digestive system and from storage depots to each cell of the body.
•   The blood of the lamb transports food to our spiritual cells and keeps us from starving to death for all eternity.

7 FONCTIONS DU SANG

7 FONCTIONS DU SANG

Il ya sept fonctions de vie dans le sang de JÉSUS-CHRIST!

1. Oxygène – Vie

• Les globules rouges transportent l’oxygène des structures respiratoires (poumons) vers les cellules du corps.
• Le sang de l’agneau transporte le souffle de vie dans les cellules spirituelles afin que nous puissions vraiment vivre et continuer à vivre pour toute l’éternité.

Lévitique 17:11 (SG21)

En effet, la vie d’un être est dans le sang. Je vous l’ai donné sur l’autel afin qu’il serve d’expiation pour vos âmes, car c’est par la vie que le sang fait l’expiation.

CHOISIS PAR DIEU

By Passion Centre,

CHOISIS PAR DIEU

Matthieu 22:14 Car il y a beaucoup d’appelés, mais peu d’élus (choisis).

Dieu choisit toujours des gens dans ce monde et la raison pour laquelle vous êtes ici n’est pas un coup de chance.

Dieu choisit ceux qui cherchent

1 Corinthiens 1:26-29
26 Considérez, frères et sœurs, votre propre appel: il n’y a parmi vous ni beaucoup de sages selon les critères humains, ni beaucoup de puissants, ni beaucoup de nobles. 27 Mais Dieu a choisi les choses folles du monde pour couvrir de honte les sages, et Dieu a choisi les choses faibles du monde pour couvrir de honte les fortes. 28 Dieu a choisi les choses basses et méprisées du monde, celles qui ne sont rien, pour réduire à néant celles qui sont, 29 afin que personne ne puisse faire le fier devant Dieu.
