I want to learn sign language. :) Just because I want to be friends with those deaf-mute people at work heehee.
Genesis 3:3 “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all he peoples on earth will be blessed through you”
I’m not fully aware of the full details but the gist is Palestine petitioned to expand it’s borders taking part of Israel. UN now has the decision to vote for Palestine or against Palestine.
I got a text today saying the Philippines is voting FOR Palestine. IF THIS WERE TRUE…I wouldn’t be surprised that the storm named Pedring is a result of utter disobedience by voting towards dividing up the land of Israel.
Joel 3:2 “I will father ALL NATIONS and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will enter into judgement against them concerning my inheritance, my people ISrael, for they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.”
Lord we can only pray for our country, that You would forgive us and that You would heal this land and shed light upon those in authority.
Anon Asked: Just wanted to know if there’s anything in the Bible about what you can and cannot do in relationships by in physical means. Because i’m in a relationship and i’m not sure where it’s going from here, and whether the Bible had any teachings on right from wrong in a situation like this.”
Proverbs 18:22 “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.”
Relationships are wonderful gifts from God. Romantic relationships can be both wonderful and at the same time a distraction. Courtship is intended for marriage. If you are in a relationship and without the intention of one day marrying that person then you have to think twice.
Genesis 2:24 "Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh."
I do not know any exact verse that talks directly about courtship guidelines, what boyfriends and girlfriends ought to do (well there was no boyfriend girlfriend back then)—-but I can share some verses with important principles behind it.
Timothy 4:12 “Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an EXAMPLE in speech, in conduct, in love, in PURITY.”
Purity is one of the major issues a pre-marital couple has to deal with. Purity is not simply putting off sex til marriage, it is respecting each other as your siblings in Christ, to guard your heart and thoughts form lustful thoughts, from avoiding excessive physical contact. One key to this is SELF CONTROL.
Titus 2:12 “Training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live SELF-CONTROLLED, upright and godly lives in the present age.”
1 Thessalonians 4:3-5 “For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality, that each one of you know to control his own body in holiness and honor, not in the passion of lust like the Gentiles who do now know God.”
Draw close to God and you will draw closer to one another. God should be your primary love, not your lover.
1 John 5:21 “Dear Children keep yourselves away from idols.”
No I don’t mean having a picture of the one you love, setting up an altar and worshipping him/her. Idolatry is a thing of the heart. It is when we begin putting other things or other people before God. The principle is if you both draw near to God you will be amazed how you two are drawing near to each other. This of course is not possible if the one you love does not love God.
2 Corinthians 6:14 “Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? OR what fellowship has light with darkness?”
Take Solomon for example, he was the wisest, richest, most powerful man alive. He practically had everything! Yet because of his intermarriage with women of pagan beliefs his heart was led astray from the Lord’s. Samson fell in love with Delilah, and she became his downfall.
Haha this should actually be RULE NUMBER 1 NON NEGOTIABLE. You can’t yoke together two animals with different strengths cause they’ll wear each other out. Same with marriage, you try marrying one who doesn’t believe in God and you’ll be so worn out.
I want to close with this, for those who are eager to jump into a relationship:
Song of Solomon 2:7 “Do not arouse or awaken love until it so desires.”
I believe that in God’s time He will reveal the one for you. But you have to also wait on the Lord, and by waiting I don’t mean sit and do nothing… I mean the proactively seeking the Lord and growing in the Lord while you are still single.
Besides singleness is a gift. It is a time where you can live a life of undivided devotion to the Lord. (See 1 Corinthians 7:25-35)
