Risen Lord!

Jesus is Risen

What a wonderful Easter Sunday! Today at service three young folks publicly proclaimed Jesus as their Lord. The three were baptised and shared their testimonies with the congregation. Such wonderful testimonies. Gabriel, one of the three, said that his testimony was not boring. That his testimony begun 2000 years ago on the cross of Jesus. Amen brother! I’m sure the Lord is using these testimonies to stir the hearts of others, to draw others to Him. Our Lord desires not that any live without Him or that anyone to perish, but that everyone to come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9) I was surely moved by the service today. I remember my own baptism…memories of joy. God is not done with us yet. More work to be done, more people to love. Let us draw our strength from the one who rose from the grave!

Jesus the Christ is risen. He is risen indeed!

Matthew 28:6 “..I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here, for He has been raised, just as He said.” Romans 1:4 “and who through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God in power by His resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Mark 16:6

 

My Last Day – Jesus Anime

This is wonderful. I do see the Lord using this to testify to the many anime fans out there. May the Gospel of the Lord Jesus be preached to the whole world!

Background:
About 7 years ago, in Budapest, a few of us brainstormed an idea for creating a version of Jesus’ story in Japanese “Anime” form. We convinced former Disney animator, Barry Cooke and worked for years to massage various scripts, music and concepts. HERE IT IS!

At one point it was the story of Jesus meeting the “Demoniac.” Eventually, we decided the first story would be about Jesus’ death and resurrection.

This story unfolds through the eyes of a criminal who receives the same brutal crucifixion sentence as Christ. “My Last Day” is a short film of regret, repentance and redemption. Animé created by The JESUS Film Project, with Barry Cook and Studio 4C (株式会社スタジオよんどしい Kabushiki-Gaisha Sutajio Yondo Shii). They created Animatrix, Tekkon Kinkreet and Gotham Knight.

Hopefully this will be the first of many short stories of Jesus’ life. Thank you all for the years of prayer.

My Last Day

Cross of Laminin

God holds our lives together in more ways than we even realize.

Take a look at the follow photo:
Laminin

“Laminins are major proteins in the basal lamina (formerly improperly called “basement membrane”), a protein network foundation for most cells and organs. The laminins are an important and biologically active part of the basal lamina, influencing cell differentiation, migration, adhesion as well as phenotype and survival.”

Basically, Laminin is the substance in our body that helps in our bodies’ adhesiveness or “holds us together”. Funny how its shape is in the form of the cross.

Was just reading an article and the author stated that “Thousands of years before the world knew anything about laminin, Paul penned those words.”  I couldn’t agree more. God made us intelligent beings, with His gift we so developed incredible technology. When we research everything around us, and more so research within our own beings, we find that the very nature of our body points to our Lord!

(Col 1:15-17 )

15:  He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.

16:  For by Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities-all things were created through Him and for Him.

17:  And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.

(Col 1:19-20 [KJV])

19: For it pleased the Father that in Him should all fulness dwell;

20: And, having made peace through the blood of His cross, by Him to reconcile all things unto Himself; by Him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

There is so much around us and as we can see, in us that points to our Lord Jesus Christ. Don’t know how anyone could not give God all the glory.

I don’t mean to be blunt, but hey, this is what the Bible says, and after all the evidence that points to the Almighty God, creator of Heaven and Earth…

Psalms 14:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

God is great! There is no other, none but One, good, merciful, awesome, everlasting, kind, understanding, solid, never changing, gracious, peace bringing, loving, lovable, glorious, faithful, worthy, powerful God!

Praise the Lord! Blessed be His holy name. 😀 😀 😀
