INTERNET CHURCH

Some people are calling this biblical school. If you are reading daily the messages of the Pastor, this means that you pass through a real, inspired biblical education without being taken away from your family and daily work. It’s important to note that each message is a daily guidance from the Holy Spirit of God, not some pre-made program. The thing, in which I believe, is that Jesus taught his students each day, and he inspired them and made them practice the learned from Him. That’s the principle of work in His ministry. I want the people, who follow me to be people sensitive to the Holy Spirit and to know his guidance. These lessons have for target to teach you just that. The teaching together with the action, show our obedience to God and release the power of the Holy Spirit in our life.

Welcome everyone in Internet Church!

 This is a prophesy, that God gave me today: a year of awakening awaits us, a time, when passive Christians will become twice as dead, and the ones moved by the Holy spirit will be more powerful in word and in action. The time has come, when God will raise the stones to speak for the people, who just call themselves with His name (Luke 19:40 "I tell you," he replied, "if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out."). Time comes when all sins and every compromise made in church will be judged. God will judge all his servants and all merchants in church with His mighty hand. Nothing will remain a secret and all that is said in secret will come out. God will break the dry branches, that don’t bear fruit, to give space to the ones that do. This is a year, during which you will see God in a way that you have never seen Him before. God will perform something new and those, who love Jesus, will easily know His voice. The ones that are not part of the herd and jump over the fence will not hear His voice and they will remain outside the sheep pen or God’s protection. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Revelation 22:15 “Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.” God of wonders will show omens down on earth and wonders in the skies above. Acts 2:17-21 “In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

It is time for saving people’s souls, so stand united and unanimity of faith, so you will be effective and fruit bearing in faith.  Isaiah 43:19 “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”Know the marks of times and their omens; know the time of God before it’s too late. Get up and belt on the hope of the blessing, which you are being given today and listen to the voice of the Lord, who calls upon you today. Amen! 1 Peter 1:13 “Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming.”  God of peace may be with all of you today.

Pastor Vasil Petrov.














































































Hello, church, 8th July 2015

Jeremiah 23:16-18 Thus says the Lord of hosts: “Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you, filling you with vain hopes. They speak visions of their own minds, not from the mouth of the Lord. They say continually to those who despise the word of the Lord, ‘It shall be well with you’; and to everyone who stubbornly follows his own heart, they say, ‘No disaster shall come upon you.’” For who among them has stood in the council of the Lord to see and to hear his word, or who has paid attention to his word and listened?

God himself calls upon everyone, when He speaks through the mouth of Jeremiah, that prophesizing or preaching of good fortune is not from Him, but is a lie from the mouth of lying preachers. Whether God wants from us that we are better than Him when we take the initiative to speak and preach words other than the ones, spoken by Him? A good question?

Let us ask ourselves: What does it mean to preach vanity? Are there people that do this today? Does this help anyone at all?

Of course not, not after we have read the words of Ezekiel. Speaking of what you say God has shown you but is made up by you is a sin before the Lord. Being under the delusion that you see things that are not there, but you are still following, is being misguided. Such people despise and scorn God. Maybe some of you will say this is a bit too much but I don’t think so. Despising means scorning, ignoring, disregard. Despising the Lord and His word is not agreeing with Him and preaching your own doctrine. What does God say? They say continually to those who despise the word of the Lord, ‘It shall be well with you’; and to everyone who stubbornly follows his own heart, they say, ‘No disaster shall come upon you.’”

I ask you again people have you heard similar preaching recently? Saying “there will be peace, don’t worry, no harm will come to you” makes every preacher a preacher of his own words which is insolence.

God speaks to Ezekiel in Ezekiel 3:18. „If I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, in order to save his life, that wicked person shall die for[a] his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand.”

These are the same words preached by Jesus Christ in Mark 8:38 For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”

If you preach any other word that is more tolerant of sin you are preachers of demonic teachings and in no way are you preachers of the living God. If you don’t tell the truth to your relatives, friends, neighbors, when they ask you about your faith aren’t you being hypocritical, being ashamed by the words and the truths, spoken by Jesus. 

It is said that the false preachers are sometimes unaware of what they are doing because they themselves were lied to by satan. Why? I judge by the last sentence we read in Jeremiah 23:18 For who among them has stood in the council of the Lord to see and to hear his word, or who has paid attention to his word and listened? Hearing the word of God is according to the truths in the Word and not when you copied something from one of your idols. I could call this simply “zombifying”. Speaking what God has never said is worse than not saying anything. This is why it is better for us to be careful when we are learning the Word of God and to treat it humbly and with the necessary respect. The Word of God will lead us to holiness and without that no one will see the Lord. Да говориш това, което Бог никога не е казал е по–лошо от това да не казваш нищо. Ето защо днес е по-добре да бъдем внимателни в това да изучаваме Божието слово смирено и да се отнасяме към Него с необходимия респект. Словото на Бог ще ни води в онова освещение, без което никой няма да види Господа. Hebrews 12:14 „Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.”

The teaching of Zechariah is the following: Zechariah 8:16 These are the things that you shall do: Speak the truth to one another; render in your gates judgments that are true and make for peace;

Very concreteness and truth is found in his words later pasted or copied by apostle Paul in his message to Ephesians 4:25 Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another.

I leave you to think about what I shared with you today about right and wrong. Look into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and persevere, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, and be blessed in your doing.

With lots of love towards you church, I love you and hug you

Hello, church, 1st July 2015

John 4:10 Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, ‘Give me a drink,’ you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water.”

A town called Sychar, a well called “Jacob’s well”, a Samaritan woman, who came to draw some water from the well and the greatest event in her life – meeting Jesus.

You never know when you will meet Jesus. This woman did not know that this was the day when Jesus was going to pass by. She just came to get some water for her home and was not expecting anything special to happen on that day. How many times do you go to work not expecting Jesus to be there? How many times do you go on vacation and leave Jesus behind? How many times do you go somewhere without Jesus? Where could you meet Jesus? I would say anytime and anywhere.

Jesus opens the conversation with the words “Give me a drink.” So the Samaritan asks Him: “How is it that you, a Jew, ask for a drink from me, a woman of Samaria?” (For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.) Then the words “If you knew the gift of God” follow.

Church, I want to ask you today: Do you know the Lord’s gift for you? Apostle Paul knew what it was, because before these words were spoken, he had met Jesus and had drunk from the well. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

God gave His flesh for mankind and He is not just human, He is eternal life in human flesh. He named His son Jesus Christ and this name is is given to the world as a promise for salvation for anyone who believes in Him. Philippians 2:9 Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name.

Another important thing that you should know is that when you meet Him today, He will most certainly ask something of you. Don’t ask me what, because I don’t know exactly what it is, I can just give you the general idea. He asked the woman from Samaria for some water and maybe He will ask you to give Him your heart, or maybe something else you cherish very much, I don’t know. The question is – are you ready to meet Jesus today or is there always going to be a tomorrow for you.

Romans 10:9 Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

A good prayer for people who have never confessed anything from their heart to Jesus. Repeat with me out loud and believe me something will happen soon.

Dear Lord Jesus,

I pray you today to forgive my sins. I am a sinner and I realize this. I repent my sins today and ask of You to make me a new creation. I believe that Jesus is Lord and that God has raised Him from the dead. I confess with belief because I do not doubt God’s love for me. I give my life to you and invite you to be Lord and Savior of my heart. I promise to follow you through all of my days. I ask You to write my name in the book of eternal life.

If you are looking for a good church, take a look at our website.

Blessings to all of you.

Hello, church, 22nd June 2015


To be able to pray with faith we need to remove all obstacles before God’s response!

The prayer of faith requires our continuous prayer with faith in our hearts that God has heard us and that His answer is on the way. Romans 10:17 “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.” In the original Greek manuscript there is no “it”. This is why a better translation would be “faith comes from hearing (understanding) and hearing – from the word of Christ”. Faith is set free when we pray and we have the understanding in our hearts that God has heard us and we have received his promise that the answer is on the way. If we stop praying before that assurance we may have not received enough faith so that we may find what we seek in prayer. We should also be aware of how we confess our faith! In Romans 10:9 confession is linked to faith. Christians often put obstacles before the answer to their prayer when they start confessing negative thoughts: “I prayed, but I don’t have faith that God will provide”. Never pray with self-pity, God never answers such prayers, He only responds to prayers with faith. He cannot be manipulated by self-pity – “as if nobody cares about me” or “I know I will be destroyed!”

Get rid of your self-pity and start moving with faith! Your attitude will determine the level of faith you are praying at. If your confession is negative, it reveals that your heart is also negative because the mouth speaks of what is in the heart. A positive confession will make you praise the Lord for His response even before you get it! You will wake up in the morning with the conscious knowledge that God has heard you and you will praise Him and thank Him. This will build your faith and will make God’s hand work for you.

To be moved in a prayer of faith we need to get rid of every sin in our lives! 1 John 3:21-22 Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God; 22 and whatever we ask we receive from him, because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him. If you have a sin, confess to the Lord! Don’t wait until the morning! Do it now! Cleanse your heart before the Lord so that there is a clean channel of prayer between you and your heavenly father: 1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. God could remove every obstacle – sin, bitterness, hatred or fear, He does not put a limit on the faith He gives us. This faith could grow and thrive, so let us pray with faith! The results of such prayer will be miraculous: „And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.” James 5:15.

Hello, church, 2nd of March 2015

What is nicer than starting the week with testimonials?

The thing that made my day yesterday was the saved souls in Gabrovo during our Sunday sermon. Glory to the Lord! This is the greatest thing in my opinion. But this is not all! When I finished preaching a boy from our Internet church called me and told me “Pastor, two lambs were born during the service!” I was very happy. The first thing that came to my mind was that he meant human souls because the Bible often refers to souls of people who have given their lives to Christ as their shepherd so I asked: „Do you mean this literally or you meant people?” The answer was: “Literally but I believe that in the future it will be people”. Радвам се, че около мен God gave me normal pure hearted people who are joyful about everything just like children and they share their joy with me as it is written: Mark 10:15 „Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”

The second thing that really filled me with joy was a letter from a girl from… Listen to this:

Yesterday during a sermon I accidentally mentioned a town, which I have neither had a sermon in nor have ever been to – Tutrakan. I have never had to search for it on a map and I did not know where it was. The name of the town just slipped my lips and not just once during the day. This is like when we think we do or say things accidentally when we actually don’t. When I came back from the service in Veliko Tarnovo yesterday I opened my e-mail and read the following letter:

“Hello. My name is Marieta. I only recently gave birth and I am a stay at home mom for the time being and I cannot come to the sermons on Sunday. Even so I am part of your gatherings online every week.

I heard something interesting about Tutrakan in the sermon today. I am writing to you from there. Please feel welcome to join our sermons here.

I always feel encouraged by the Word you speak. I even had a dream about your sermons without having been to Gabrovo. I believe that what you do now reaches a lot of people around the world and your message brings change in their lives and mine included.

In case you are called here, it will be a great joy for us to be in contact with you. Many greetings to you and your whole team.”

Glory to the Lord! I have testified to many supernatural events in my life but I tell you this filled me with great joy! When you know that the Word of God reaches every point in the world and in places where you have never been people are changed and God’s fate for their lives is not just a mirage this could make you really happy. Glory to the Lord because the vision we have for Internet church is working in full led by the Holy Spirit. Everyday new people are being saved for God’s glory and this makes us very happy. Of course we are going to go to Tutrakan and preach about the salvation so that new souls are saved, the sick get healthy, the sinners are released from satan’s traps and more over so that we have new friends in Bulgaria, with whom we can bring glory to the Lord as Savior of our lives. Now tell me isn’t it grand to have Jesus in your heart? Let me know…

Hello, church, 25th February 2015

Psalm 91:11 „For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.

Have you ever come across this verse while reading your Bibles, people? Yes! Because He speaks of the great power and protection of God in our lives. Do you believe that when you pray God will really keep you from incidents, obstacles and the traps of the devil? It is good if you believe that and to pray because this is lifesaving. Did you notice the words “He will command”? It is hard to believe but it’s a fact that God commands His heavenly servants – the angels – to keep the paths of people who truly pray in their hearts to God. When death wants to take away your life and it seems that you are in great danger, God’s command is still powerful. God’s angels have to take care of every situation and the end result is you being saved. 

I have just received a call from Dobrinka Ilieva from Internet church. She testified to how God saved her life just 5 minutes ago. Even her sisters don’t know about it yet, because the first person she called was me – her pastor. A good decision at that and one that was incited by the Holy Spirit. He just told me that she was driving on the road to her sister’s house in Sredets – Krasimira – when an accident happened. On a straight part of the road the car which is going at 60km/hour slides and starts spinning in circles. Dobrinka has lost control of the vehicle. She didn’t know what was going on but she says that she felt she was going to lose her life. At this moment something deep inside her spoke the word “STOP” and the car immediately stopped without her being able to do anything about it. The car is now in the middle of the opposite side of the road. When Dobrinka looks around she sees many holes on the side of the road in which the car could have fallen. What Dobrinka told me is that she came out of all of this without feeling stressed, scared, her hands and legs are not shaking and she feels safe and secure. But what she said afterwards really encouraged me. She said that from this moment on she can see how God is there beside her and is keeping her from harm. “From this moment on my respect to God is real.” She said she would like to live a life in service to God and to continue on with the Word of God and continue to change by thanking Jesus for every moment of her existence. I am glad that God has saved Dobrinka’s life and we give Him all the glory.

The devil wanted to provoke Jesus by citing the same verse and to entrap Him, but Jesus knew how to counteract his deceit:

Matthew 4:5-7 Then the devil took him to the holy city and set him on the pinnacle of the temple and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written, “‘He will command his angels concerning you,’ and “‘On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone.’” Jesus said to him, “Again it is written, ‘You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.’ Do not test the Lord but always remain in prayer so that He may protect you from the devil wherever you go and God will command His angels to protect you. Amen!

Pastor Vasil Petrov



Hello, church, 18th February 2015

Start your day with a good confession.

Is it important for a Christian to have a daily confession? Is this important to me?

What is a confession? This is your internal certainty according to the Word of God of something you deeply believe and confess in the spiritual world. For example the first confession of our heart is in the resurrection of Jesus Christ and that Je is our Lord and Savior.

Romans 10:10 „For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.”

Is this confession enough for you to continue on your spiritual path? Of course not! The daily confession affirms your faith daily. It has the power to destroy the acts of satan. The confession reveals what you believe in and what is in your spiritual heart. The confession defines the course of events which are happening around you. There is great power in the prayer of the righteous. The prayer itself is a good way to confess. Do you start your day with confession?

Apostle Paul was advising his student Timothy the following way:

1 Timothy 6:9-15 „But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs. But as for you, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who in his testimony before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, to keep the commandment unstained and free from reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which he will display at the proper time—he who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords”

Let’s look at this message in short. What do we notice first? It all starts with instruction, lesson, encouragement and wisdom from God for how the young student should keep his heart from the love of money. This weakness of man for wishing the earthly pleasures is what satan often uses as a weapon against each one of us. The Apostle says that everything starts with the love of money. Notice also that the Apostle talks about wandering away from faith and the destruction of those who used to be believers and not non-believers. It is also said that believers have wandered away from faith and have been pierced with many pangs or have suffered many sorrows because of the love of money. You don’t have to be very rich in order to love money. There are people who are wealthy and there are people who are poor and still have a heart bound to money. And there are also people who are wealthy or poor and still have a giving heart.

The second most important thing we can see is that the Apostle gives guidance as to which way should Timothy go with his life so that he has a good life. What is the wealth that he should strive for: „But as for you, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness.” Those who can believe in these words will have great success for they are the key to success.

The third thing which can make an impression on you in this text is the impulse of the Apostle to lead a life of the spiritual warrior with a good confession. The heart of the believer should always be at war with the temptation and traps of the devil. The good confession is a weapon. There is one example here: „and of Christ Jesus, who in his testimony before Pontius Pilate made the good confession”

Of what good confession is he speaking? What did Jesus say to Pilate?

Mark 15:1-5 „And as soon as it was morning, the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council. And they bound Jesus and led him away and delivered him over to Pilate. And Pilate asked him, “Are you the King of the Jews?” And he answered him, “You have said so.” And the chief priests accused him of many things. And Pilate again asked him, “Have you no answer to make? See how many charges they bring against you.” But Jesus made no further answer, so that Pilate was amazed.”

Jesus did not deny the allegations against him and won the battle against the enemy. To the question: Исус не отрече обвинението срещу него и спечели битката с врага. На въпроса; “Are you the King of the Jews?” He answered “You have said so.” This confession brought Jesus to a death sentence but also granted Him victory over death and hell. Not always is the loser losing nor is the winner winning. Think about this and God will open your eyes to the truth.

The daily confession is what you believe and the truth of your heart. You shouldn’t tell the people around you anything else but what you believe. Tell God what you believe in, attest to it in front of people and you will be victorious just like Jesus. 

God bless you all, church,

I love you from all my heart, Pastor Vasil Petrov


Hello, church, 12th February 2015

I have good news for you today!

Jesus Christ defeated the greatest enemies of humanity – death and hell. Where do I know this from? The Word of God says so. I doubt you will hear about this if you watch the evening news. If you read the titles of the daily newspapers you will learn about wars, combats, destruction and so on but no one will tell you about what could make you strong. Listen to what Apostle Paul tells the

Colossians 2:11-15 In him also you were circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the powerful working of God, who raised him from the dead. And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him.

It is meant that rulers and authorities of dishonesty were disarmed. This is about the power of darkness the ruler of which is satan or whom we also know as the father of lies Lucifer.  These verses tell us that the kingdom of darkness, of which everybody is afraid, the deeds of injustice, demons and all evil spirits were defeated and are ruled over by the King of Kings the Lord Jesus Christ. 

The evangelist Mathew sais this: Matthew 12:40. „For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.”

I believe that every one of you already knows where hell is. The testimony of the Holy Spirit is that Jesus Christ was in the heart of the Earth for 3 days during which everyone thought He was buried in the dark grave which had the stamp of the Roman empire and guarded by four sets of Roman soldiers. There was no way that His body gets stolen, but Jesus could not be held captive by anything. 

Acts 2:24. „God raised him up, loosing the pangs of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it.”

And not only this but also alive in the spirit in which he went and proclaimed to the spirits of the prison, because they formerly did not obey when God’s patience was waiting in the days of Noah.

1 Peter 3:18-22, „For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit, in which he went and proclaimed to the spirits in prison, because they formerly did not obey, when God's patience waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were brought safely through water. Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, with angels, authorities, and powers having been subjected to him.”

When I think of Him all the evil in this world disappears and the impossible becomes possible. When John saw Jesus in a vision, he wrote down His words for all of us to read:

Revelation 1:17-18 „When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. But he laid his right hand on me, saying, “Fear not, I am the first and the last, and the living one. I died, and behold I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of Death and Hades. ”

Did you read this: „behold I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of Death and Hades.”

Today you can find salvation for your eternal soul only through the One, who holds this power.

The only name given to men for the salvation of souls is the name of Jesus.

Acts 4:12. „And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

A PRAYER FOR REPENTANCE

God, forgive me, the sinner. I admit and repent my sins before You. And I ask You to teach me how to live the truths of Your word! Give me grace so that I will not sin. I accept jesus as my Lord and Savior and believe that He is Your Son. He died for my sins. You resurrected Him from death and he is alive today. Forgive me, Lord! Save me, Lord! Change me and make me a new creation in Jesus Christ. Help me understand Your will for me and help me to it into action as long as I live. Teach me how to love You and follow You. I want to be Your child and You – to be my father. Put my name in the book of eternal life  so I could live with You forever until You return to take me together with Your church. Amen!

Pastor Vasil Petrov



Hello, church 10th February 2015


Have you ever asked yourself the question “what is a church”? In the mind of every person usually appears the image of a building whether it be a cathedral, synagogue or an orthodox church and there are also some who think the conference hall with the pulpit standing on a red velvet carpet with the words “God is love” is the right place for worship.

Is the church the building where we go because the people said so? It sounds very convenient doesn’t it? Is the church a well-organized structure where everyone is accounted for? This sounds very familiar to me but this is not what a church is.  

Let me say it directly. The church is neither the building nor the place where we gather. It is the people who have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord of their life, where two or three people have gathered in the name of Jesus. Matthew 18:20 For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” Those are the people who have accepted eternal piece in their hearts and who have been born anew from the water and the Spirit.

Ephesians 2:14-19 „For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility. And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near. For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God„

The new person living within us already has his church. For him it is said that he is no longer a stranger to God but a fellow citizen with the saints and a member of the household of God. The church is God’s family. This is why He is so concerned with it. This is why God promises us he will protects us, love us and care for us, who are His church.

Here are a few of the questions which Apostle Paul asks the 1 Corinthians 1:11-13, „For it has been reported to me by Chloe's people that there is quarreling among you, my brothers. What I mean is that each one of you says, “I follow Paul,” or “I follow Apollos,” or “I follow Cephas,” or “I follow Christ.” Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?”

Yes, in the early church there weren’t so many denominations and so many different religions. There were quarrels about the names of saints. Pointless quarrels never lead to anything good. This is what the Apostle tells the church. People must understand that it is neither the place where they worship God nor the way they do it what makes a church if it is not within them first. I believe that God is gathering His herd His unique way. He tears down walls which people have put up between each other and unites them in Christ. Why? Because He will fulfill the prayer with which Jesus prayed on this earth John 17:22. „The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one.”

Sadly there will always be worldly and spiritual Christians. Those two groups can never fit together. The worldly Christians will never understand the great truth told by Apostle Paul: 1 Corinthians 3:3-7, „for you are still of the flesh. For while there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not of the flesh and behaving only in a human way? For when one says, “I follow Paul,” and another, “I follow Apollos,” are you not being merely human? What then is Apollos? What is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, as the Lord assigned to each. I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth.”

We need to focus on Him, who makes us all grow. Amen! We need to get closer to Him with hearts full of love, so God will bless us. Accept that you are part of the family of God and you will never feel alone, bad and cast out. I am happy about the fact that people are saved and accept Jesus Christ in their lives and new people are added to the church daily. And do you know why it has that name – “Internet church”? Because people are not coming to a building, the church is within them. There is no greater thing than seeing people wake up from a deep sleep and meet their Creator who surrounds them with great love and tenderness and receives the same from them in return. It is great, people! God bless you.

With lots of love, Pastor Vasil Petrov



Hello, church, 28th January 2015

Acts 14:8-10 „Now at Lystra there was a man sitting who could not use his feet. He was crippled from birth and had never walked. He listened to Paul speaking. And Paul, looking intently at him and seeing that he had faith to be made well said in a loud voice, “Stand upright on your feet.” And he sprang up and began walking.”

The case with the cripple who was healed in Lystra always focuses my attention on two important things, which require more thought. When we speak of healing and liberation we have to bear in mind that it always happens where there is faith in the name of Jesus and not because of a charismatic and emotional service. Putting our faith in a person is easier and people often rely on it for success like prayer with laying hands on the sick, anointance with oil, both of which are fine, on the contrary – those are acts found in the Bible. I want to draw your attention to something else entirely.

Many people don’t get their healing because of lack of faith. Many times they are not paying attention to the Word that is being read so they can gain faith, but are waiting for a sensation when the sermon ends and the preacher starts placing hands on the sick.

Returning to the verse we started with we can see where the crippled man had places his faith. First of all this man was unable to move from birth. He has in need of a miracle. He didn’t come for a sermon to be healed, but was there to listen to the Word like everyone else.  The crippled man was not waiting for the end of the service, but we read that he was listening to the preaching of Paul.  This is what the church nowadays misses – faith that comes from listening to the Word of God. Don’t ever forget that we are saved through faith in the resurrection of Christ, through faith in His name we are healed and released from chains; we perform great deeds through faith through faith we prophesy, through faith we our hope in eternal life remains. Faith is the main driving force in the life of any follower of Christ. When you listen to the Word of God and faith comes “whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.” Matthew 21:22

The second most important thing we need to pay attention to is the acts of the apostles. We read that as Paul was preaching he saw faith in the eyes of the crippled man and cried out loudly: “Stand upright on your feet.” Only the wish of the crippled man to start walking is not enough. This man could walk for the first time because of two important factors: hearing the Word, through which faith came into his heart and the acts of Apostle Paul, who was guided by the Holy Spirit.

A similar biblical example of healing we can also see in the service of the apostles Peter and John. Acts 3:16 „And his name—by faith in his name—has made this man strong whom you see and know, and the faith that is through Jesus has given the man this perfect health in the presence of you all.”

This man was also a cripple and his friends would regularly put him in front of the temple to beg for money. When Peter, who was there with John, looked into his eyes, he told him: look at us. And so the man was looking at them, waiting for them to give him something. You see, faith is a great expectation for something to happen. If one would say that the crippled man was expecting a miracle at this moment, they would be wrong. The man was expecting to get money, but when Peter looked into his eyes, he saw faith and so he said: look at us. But Peter said, “I have no silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!”

The foundation of this miracle is faith in Jesus Christ.

This leads us to the answer of which road we should point out to those, who are in need of healing:

1.     Listening to the Word

2.     Faith

3.     Timely intervention of the pastor

4.     Healing based on faith in the Lord

Have a wonderful day and may the Lord of peace be with each one of you today

I love you, church,

Hello, church, 26th of January 2015


I think I disappointed someone today but I don’t believe I have a reason to be sorry. I will tell you what happened. I was shopping with my wife in one of those big supermarkets. We were at the meat and sausage counter and we asked to taste one of the sausages before buying it. One man took part in our conversation and said that he personally has tried this sausage and that it goes very well with rakia (traditional Bulgarian alcoholic drink). I responded that I hate rakia and that I never drink it and he was stunned. For a moment I had the feeling that I had sinned. I told him to relax – not everyone likes to eat and drink the same things. I am against the status quo that every Bulgarian should have this drink on their table. For those who like the drink – so be it, but I am not one of them.

The Bible tells us:

Библията казва; „But to what shall I compare this generation? It is like children sitting in the marketplaces and calling to their playmates, “‘We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; we sang a dirge, and you did not mourn.’ For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, ‘He has a demon.’ The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Look at him! A glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ Yet wisdom is justified by her deeds. „Matthew 11:16-20

I think that then and now people don’t really know what they want from life, but we are obligated to bear with each other. This way or the other…

A message from Pastor Vasil Petrov

 Psalm 143:1-12 A Psalm of David. Hear my prayer, O Lord; give ear to my pleas for mercy!  In your faithfulness answer me, in your righteousness! Enter not into judgment with your servant, for no one living is righteous before you. For the enemy has pursued my soul; he has crushed my life to the ground; he has made me sit in darkness like those long dead. Therefore my spirit faints within me; my heart within me is appalled. I remember the days of old; I meditate on all that you have done; I ponder the work of your hands. I stretch out my hands to you; my soul thirsts for you like a parched land. Selah Answer me quickly, O Lord! My spirit fails! Hide not your face from me, lest I be like those who go down to the pit. Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love, for in you I trust. Make me know the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul. Deliver me from my enemies, O Lord! I have fled to you for refuge. Teach me to do your will, for you are my God! Let your good Spirit lead me on level ground! For your name's sake, O Lord, preserve my life! In your righteousness bring my soul out of trouble! And in your steadfast love you will cut off my enemies, and you will destroy all the adversaries of my soul, for I am your servant.

Read the words of Kind David once more and you will see that he wrote these lines in great distress. His prayer is the same as the prayer of most people on this Eath today: „Hear my prayer, O Lord; give ear to my pleas for mercy! In your faithfulness answer me, in your righteousness! Enter not into judgment with your servant, for no one living is righteous before you.”

Maybe these are the words that you use to pray too and hope to get God’s attention. Yes, this is exactly what I mean by that, you hope God will answer your prayer. There are so many prayers today, so what gives you hope that precisely yours will reach Him? Yes, I know you are almost discouraged by my rhetorical questions already, but don’t lose hope. I want to remind you that God is merciful and even more so than any living person on this planet.

If you have to sign up for an interview today, you will not be accepted right away. Maybe they will invite you to an interview next week or next month. If you sign up to see a psychologist, pastor, teacher, you will have to wait for your time. If yu have to go to the dentist, you have to wait again. It turns out you have to wait for a lot of things in your life and at a certain point you start losing faith and patience. Maybe the same thing happens to you when you pray to God and you presume that you will have to wait until your prayers are heard and until you get what you prayed for until you fall into despair. But this is not true with prayers to God. He answers the prayers of those, who have repented and are filled with faith. God tell us through the words of Jeremiah 33:3 „Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.”

What you don’t know will be reviewed to you through Jesus Christ, God’s only son.

Matthew 11:27. „All things have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.”

You have to be very happy that God has planned more for you than you have planned for yourself. God asks you to do only one thing – call out to Him.

With lots of love towards you all, church

Hello, church, 7th January 2015

„First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” 1 Timothy 2:1-4

Apostle Paul encourages the church to pray and be thankful for all people, which includes those in high positions. Could these words be applied in our lives in the 21st century? Would the apostle use these words for the people in higher places today if he could see them? Do you think things were different in those days, when the members of the church were persecuted? Would the apostle have said the same things to the church and encourage people to pray? These questions bring more questions with them and mainly which one of these has more power in the eyes of the Lord – criticism or prayer? Of course it makes us angry that such incompetent people are allowed to rule us but I ask myself if this has not happened before. Do you think the cruel king Herod was worthy of respect or rulers, who completely changed the course of history have left a good example? No, but all of this has happened with the knowledge of God and with the people’s blessing. Looking back in history, we can see that every nation deserves its rulers. We would come to the same conclusion as King Solomon:

Proverbs 29:2 „When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, but when the wicked rule, the people groan.” This truth is also a sign of warning toward those who rule.

Proverbs 29:16. „When the wicked increase, transgression increases, but the righteous will look upon their downfall.” Now it becomes clear why rulers rule for as long as they do.

We could go on and discuss the righteousness of rulers but both good and bad things happen to good and bad people. Ecclesiastes 9:2. „t is the same for all, since the same event happens to the righteous and the wicked, to the good and the evil, to the clean and the unclean, to him who sacrifices and him who does not sacrifice. As the good one is, so is the sinner, and he who swears is as he who shuns an oath.”

I would like to ask all of you a question and each Christian should answer truthfully to themselves first: which of these two has more power to change my life – criticism/getting angry or prayer? When we prayer for the rulers do we truly believe that this will change our fate to live in peace? The other option is to be constantly angry, but as far as I’ve learned so far, this has never brought positive outcome.

Apostle Paul would use those exact same words today that the church of God should not have ill thoughts and not sin towards other no matter their position in society. The apostle would encourage us to pray for our rulers so that our life is peaceful and blessed. It is then that we will be able to hope for what Isaiah has prophesized for us: Isaiah 55:7. „let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.”

Not everything could be always perfect but this does not mean we should accept evil in our lives. As the body of Christ we have to believe that prayer has great power and we need to believe that it could make a change.  And for those who do not wish to change I have this verse:

Revelation 22:11. „Let the evildoer still do evil, and the filthy still be filthy, and the righteous still do right, and the holy still be holy.”

God blees you all, church,

Happy new year, church, 1st January 2015

Another years remains in history of mankind, which God had painted with his own finger in the life of each one of us. The colors are sometimes bright and sometimes dark and gloomy. It is an understatement that not everything in our lives is good but it is for the best. „And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28

We have to learn the lessons of life sometimes the hard way – with pain and distress, but this makes us stronger, wiser and we perfect ourselves in the love of God. Налага се да учим уроците на живота, през които преминаваме ежедневно понякога с болка и огорчение, но затова пък ставаме все по–силни, по–мъдри и се усъвършенстваме ежедневно в любовта. „And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. ” 1 Peter 5:10

Suffering is not a loss, but always leads to victory, when you learn from it and not try to avoid it. It is God’s will that we thank Him for everything by standing firm in Christ and continue forward with more faith, strength and dedication. „give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18

We are already at the beginning of a new year 2015 and in each one of us there is the will to make a change. We wish for the same things – health, blessings, happy life and success and the expectations are always greater for the days to come. Yes, we all hope that the Lord will provide good and peaceful times but the Word warns us to be careful, because the last days will be harder for all of us. It is to be expected that everything that was predicted will happen but this is not a reason for despair, on the contrary, it should make us stronger and unite us more than ever before. „For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised.” Hebrews 10:36

In the beginning of the new 2015 I encourage you to be united and not give your thoughts to high but to little things. Perfect yourselves, give comfort to each other, be united, live in peace and the God of peace and love will be with all of us. Fill me heart with joy by thinking the same things, by having the same love towards each other and to never stop doing good. May the shepherd, our Lord Jesus Christ perfect you in every good deed so you may abide His will and do what is right by Him, may all the Glory be to Him for eternity, amen.

Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.

May God bless the new 2015 for all of us through the blessings that Jesus Christ has for every single one of us. This year I pray that your families, relatives and friends get to know Jesus as a Saviour and recognize Him as the only God in their lives.

And what we wish upon the Earth is already written by Luke 2:14 “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”

With lots of love, Pastor Vasil Petrov



Hello, church, 15th December 2014


How strong is your desire to be closer to God? How big are your dreams, your expectation and your hope for God to make a change in your life? Those are factor that have a great influence on your future and the best you have coming. If you are tired from a life of vanity why not change that and feel the touch of God through His Holy Spirit?

James 4:6 But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”

Grace is for the humble and they will be able to get closer to the best God has to offer us. The Word tells us that God puts obstacles in front of the proud and a person like that will never get to the place of true peace for his soul  and joy so he could praise the Lord with all his strength and from the depth of his heart. Don’t allow yourselves to be bound by prejudice, worry, sin, shame, hatred, lust or idolatry. 

1 John 2:16 „For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life[a]—is not from the Father but is from the world.”

These is something that will bring God’s power in your life, His hope for the future and everlasting joy even when your flesh is tired and weak. This is the power of the Love of God. His personal touch which always says “I love you”.

2 Peter 1:3-4 His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to[a] his own glory and excellence,[b] 4 by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire.

Don’t be angry with people because of their weaknesses, don’t be offended by the arrogance of the devil, which he uses to drag you down, don’t fall into sinful behavior following other people because all are going to be gone soon anyway. Turn to the Creator of everything and find out for yourself about His grace and love towards yourself. Then you will truly become strong and will succeed. Amen!

Continue going forward and don’t give up, God is with you even in the hardes times and will never let you go.

With lots of love from me, Pastor Vasil Petrov



Hello, church, 8th December 2014

1 John 3:1-3 „See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God's children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears[a] we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is. And everyone who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure.”

When do we know that we know God and that we have accepted Him as Lord of our life? When we aim to abide God’s will and cleanse ourselves from every sin and false and misleading information. Many people find it hard to continue on the road to sanctification and I will tell you why. Because they love sin and themselves more than the sacrifice which God offered the world in the face of His only son Jesus Christ. This is the truth, but is very hard for most people to see it let alone understand it. I will say it once more. If you fail to love God with your soul, all of your strength and your mind you will never be able to become different than a part of this sinful world and you will never be able to beat sin.

Luke 10:27 And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.

Too many people will probably say that it is impossible to be a true believer, sanctified and pure. No, this is not true, because the Word tells us that what for men seems impossible is possible for the Lord.

Let us come back to the verses and the words of John. There we find a word I love and it is “hope”. Anyone who has hope believes they will one day meet the Lord face to face and be close to Him and so they know what they live for. Such a person purifies himself because of the hope that awakens his whole being to look for the Lord.  This is not just a dream, but expectations of things that will happen in the future. Speaking of this I thought of a verse which reminds us to never lose hope. Jesus himself died on the cross because He was expecting something to happen. Apostle Paul encourages us to think of Jesus as of someone who has started the act of purification and sanctification in us.

 

Hebrews 12:2 „looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.”

Are you filled with joy because of the salvation of your eternal soul? Do you have faith for what God has brought to your life and made possible for you to lead a faithful life? Do you have faith that leads you to everlasting life? Now you will know if you believe in God or not. It is never to late to start believing.

I made my choice and I will never regret it.

Hello, church, 26th November 2014

John 5:4 „For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had..”

Through this verse the Lord raised my faith so I wanted to share it with you.

In Jerusalem there was a pool, called in Hebrew Bethesda, which had three major anterooms. It was 110 meters long, 40 meters wide and over 2 meters deep. Many pillars could be seen over the water. This was a monument of wealth made for the ailing and the sick. In it lay anyone who was sick, lame, blind or weak. They all stood there because an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water. The first to go into the water after this happened would receive their miracle from the Lord. But only from time to time. Many things in our life only happen from time to time and for some we wish would happen more often. The situation is always the same, the first takes the price while the others are left with the hope of being first next time. I am sure this has happened in your life many times, has it not?

The appearance of Jesus Christ the Son of God changes this rule once and for all and you can find proof of that in the Bible and believe it. He cured a man, who had been lame for 38 years. His words were: “Do you want to be healed?” This is not a rhetorical question but a very important one. Yes or no? You, my brother and sister, answer this question for me: “Do you want to be healed?” What is the price you need to pay for this? Faith, faith and more faith in His Holy name, lifted by the Lord as the only name through which we could receive salvation, healing and freedom for every human soul. Amen! This is the price that was payed for you and me over 2000 years ago. The price is Jesus’ blood which was shed on the cross for all of our sins. Now your healing should not wait in line for blessing, it is not something that happens from time to time, but any time in the name of Jesus. The question is still the same: “Do you want to be healed?”

Hello, church, 25th of November

John 5:39 You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me

Jesus said something really important and I hope it is understood by everyone who want to know God with all their heart and soul today. In another statement to the Jews He says that if they know Him they know the Lord. This brings them into confusion and startles them because they know from the scriptures that they should wait for a Messiah to come and we know from experience that waiting always causes fantasies about the things we expect to happen. People like to think about many things like: how would the Messiah look like? How shall we greet Him? What shall we say when we first meet Him? How will He give us our freedom back and bring us the Lord’s peace?

Have you met in person anyone famous that you like? Maybe a singer or a film star or a sports star? Anyone who has seen such a person whether live or from the TV screen usually is disappointed – fantasies don’t always comply with the actual situation.

I remember once two presidents were supposed to come to our town – Gabrovo – the Bulgarian and the Brazilian presidents. I had only seen them on TV up until that point and I was interested to see how they look like in real life. The town was full of people, security, snipers on the rooftops and it was very exciting. I and my wife went there early to take the spots close to the route the two presidents were going to be on. When the two cars each with the flags of the two countries arrived, the presidents spepped out and shook hands with everybody in the first rows. And don’t forget – we were right there. When I shook their hands I told them both “welcome and God bless you” and I was so so excited. But then I and my wife talked about it and we said to each other, that even though they are presidents, they are still just human like any one of us, but just with more power on their hands. We did good to finish our mission. This is what the Jews saw but couldn’t understand when they were standing right there next to Jesus. They truly believed that the day will come when He will come to Earth according to the scriptures but regretfully they did not recognize the power that Jesus had. What a pity it is to have so much information and to not know ahow to put it into action.

Making up fantasies sometimes comes from the deep studying of the scriptures where every person could build his own appearance of the Creator and his own explanation of the universe. Many people who are obeying the Lord today are on the same wrong path. On one side they have the knowledge and on the other they don’t know how to apply it.

It is good to know the scriptures and to study them but this should only be to one purpose – knowing the One they have been written about. Amen!

John 8:32 „and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Hello, church, 14th November 2014

We shall turn his sixes to nines

This is my plead to all newborn Christians today. Do it! If one of you is still not sure if God is almighty, you should read the following.

Many people nowadays come across the three sixes and anyone who sees them thinks of the antichrist or the beast as is written in Revelation 13:18. „This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.”

The assumptions and the thoughts I have heard on this matter are countless. I will tell you one thing though, we are winners and we have beaten satan through the blood of Christ that was shed on the cross for our sins. When you remind satan of this through your own words and by reminding him that you have been saved by Jesus Christ who is your Lord he will start seing his number 666 like 999. Halleluiah!

Revelation 12:11. „And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.”

In Revelation we read that the powers of darkness will lead war against us. Do you want to know about your fate in this? Listen to this:

 

Revelation 17:14. „They will make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those with him are called and chosen and faithful.”

Tell me what you think – have you been called out by Jesus for times like this?

Tell me – have your sins been washed away by the blood of Jesus Christ?

Tell me – are you faithful to God?

If the answer to these questions is yes, then your fate, which cannot be changed by any demon or devil, no powers of heaven or earth can break, because as John says “those with him are called and chosen and faithful” and they will always win.

 

Revelation 15:2. „And I saw what appeared to be a sea of glass mingled with fire—and also those who had conquered the beast and its image and the number of its name, standing beside the sea of glass with harps of God in their hands.”

Blessed be the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, amen!

Have a day of conquer through Jesus Christ, Church! Amen!

Hello, church, 11th November 2014

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.

Whatever faith we are talking about, whether it is to save, to heal, to provide for our needs, we should know that it involves giving. Let me say that again. Faith is giving! What does God give us? Assurance. People, who often lose their spiritual concentration, are often those without faith. Those who have no hope are usually the ones who are physiologically and spiritually unstable. To be able to assist someone who is going through something like this you need to assist them in their faith. There is no better way to regain faith than a good sermon.  Let us not forget what Apostle Paul says to the church in Rome in Romans 10:17. „So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.” Here is why it is so important that people go to church where the Word of god is being spoken. Why? To regain faith which will come from listening to the Word of God in a sermon. Jesus was doing this all the time and so did His students. Speaking the Word of God is not a seminar, but an inspired bold and unyielding talking of Truth – something every human soul needs. If you have grown faint or low-spirited you don’t need vitamins, what you need is the Word of God.

I would encourage you to not miss an opportunity to be assisted and even feel well, strong and confident. Everyone needs the living bread which is Jesus every day.

May your faith grow through a good sermon.

Colossians 3:16 „Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

Hello, church, 7th November 2014

Titus 3:12-15 „When I send Artemas or Tychicus to you, do your best to come to me at Nicopolis, for I have decided to spend the winter there. Do your best to speed Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their way; see that they lack nothing. And let our people learn to devote themselves to good works, so as to help cases of urgent need, and not be unfruitful. All who are with me send greetings to you. Greet those who love us in the faith. Grace be with you all.”

In Apostle Paul’s message to Titus we can clearly see how the church has been learning to cover the needs of the saints. The care for the servants or the people sent by them means that they should have everything they need. This is the model of the Heavenly Kingdom. This is a sign of respect towards anyone who was sent by God to spread the gospel and serve Him. Those deeds – covering the saint’s needs and taking care of them are described by the Apostle as good deeds. In order to be like that and perform those deeds you need the gifts of the Holy Spirit, which are described in Romans 12:6-9 „Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; 7 if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; 8 the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads,[a] with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.” Of course this all starts with the power and love towards God and people, that is within you. God grants gifts to those, who truly love, because He himself is love. Amen!

When we speak of covering the needs we cannot leave out the gifts of helping: 1 Corinthians 12:28 „And God has appointed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, helping, administrating, and various kinds of tongues.”

Some of you have the gifts of helping given by the Holy Spirit and they use them with ease. Others need to try harder to perform good deeds so they will bear fruit in the helping of others. Many people would like to have the miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit in their lives and many of them like the gifts of performing miracles and healing because they seem more attractive, but not less important are the gifts of helping the saints and covering their needs with their work of spreading the gospel. This gift is described in many places in the gospel. This is also why the Apostle mentions in 1 Corinthians 12:31 „But earnestly desire the higher gifts. And I will show you a still more excellent way.”

I and my wife are already in Bulgaria. We had a wonderful experience in the UK, glory be to the Lord. I would like to thank everyone who covered our needs there and made everything so much easier for us. I can only say one thing – we had everything we needed and we did what we were sent to do with ease. The first few days we spent in London where I served at the Sunday service. My family’s needs were covered by Pastor Dimitar Buyukliev, with whom we have already worked for some time with the goal of uniting the Christians in London in the Body of Christ. It was a real blessing to spend time with our Internet church in Nottingham where we were expected with lots of love. God did some amazing things there and this opened the hearts of many people there and they were thirsty to know God more. Under the daily care of the church there was nothing there that we needed more than we already had and we thank the Lord for those amazing people who covered all of our needs. God bless them for their generosity and care. We love you church! I will talk in more detail about my two week trip this Sunday and I will expect Internet church to gather in Gabrovo. Those who cannot come will have the chance to see the live stream on the Ministry channel.

With lots of love

Hello, church, 5th November 2014

1 Peter 2:1-5“ So put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander. Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation— if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good. As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious, you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.”

In those few verses the Apostle Peter speaks of the way newborn children of God need to be involved in the church. For the growth of the Body of Christ everything must move in harmony. Infants must start with leaving behind some things they might still carry around from their past way of life and the Apostle’s observations are that those are the feelings dangerous to every believer: evil, cunningness, hypocrisy, which is the leaven of the Pharisees, envy and gossip. We all know that this evil is poison to the human soul. For every poison there is antidote. The Apostle names the antidote and it is the pure spiritual milk. The pure spiritual milk leads to cleansing and release from the old hypocritical nature and allows for healthy growth, which in itself leads the eternal human soul to salvation. When people taste the goodness of the Lord they are spiritually cured and re-established from the deadly and crushing influence of satan in their lives. Often we see many people getting hurt through the years by allowing this influence in their lives. Only one can kill a man and make him hated by all and separated from the Holiness of the Lord. Satan wants to see hatred, envy, and gossip so he can separate people in any way he can. He performs his evil deeds in our families, friends, colleagues, students. We could see a long list of such practices in the message from Apostle Paul to: 

Romans 1:28-32 „And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God's righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them. ”

Rejecting the opportunity to know God puts man is a difficult situation in which he must find his own way through the spiritual world – the place where he is most vulnerable and knows nothing about. Not understanding the power of spiritual darkness every person could be easily misled confused and crushed by satan.

We then ask ourselves the question: which is the way out? We know the way to life and it is Jesus Christ. He is the way, the truth and the life and no one comes to the Lord but through Him. The first thing every new believer must do with their life is to leave the impurity behind and the only way to do that is by asking Jesus for help. Only Jesus knows how to lead you to victory in your life. The Apostle tells us that we should come to Jesus and become part of the spiritual home, to become holy so that we could bear spiritual sacrifices to God together with other believers. We will never be able to handle things on our own and will always be influenced by satan if we try do go through life alone. We are parts of the body of Christ, the head of which is Jesus and we need to do everything together and with love towards God and each other. Amen!

Spiritual sacrifices of praise are accepted by the Lord when we are together! 

Have a successful day and be blessed, Church!

 With lots of love, Pastor Vasil Petrov

We had a wonderful time these last few days when we prayed, communicated, spread the gospel and praised the Lord with the Internet church in Nottingham. We met many Bulgarian families and new people are added to the church through salvation. Glory be to the Lord. Whole families gave their life to Christ and are now part of the heavenly family the church. To the Body of Christ in Nottingham were added women from Harrogate after they had to travel three hours to get to be with us. We had a wonderful time of communication and and even more glorious time of praise and bow to our heavenly father. Members of the Orthodox Church can feel the love and can see the truth that is in Christ and accept life in themselves by accepting Jesus. We also met a Pastor from Africa who was so happy to meet us that he would like to work together with us because he accepts the calling I received from God to bring Christians together in one body. He promised to let us use his building in the center of Nottingham so we could serve there. This is a miracle and great joy for all of us. Let us praise the Lord for everything He does today!


Hello, church, 3rd November 2014

Matthew 8:1-3 When he came down from the mountain, great crowds followed him. And behold, a leper came to him and knelt before him, saying, “Lord, if you will, you can make me clean.” And Jesus stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, “I will; be clean.” And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

Do you think Jesus wants you to be free? And do you think the devil wants you to be free from a deadly disease, poverty, curse, an unclean spirit? Jesus tells us that satan is a killer and we should never fall for his lies and fall into his hands. What we shouldn’t allow him to do is kill us. Jesus said he is the door and if we go through it we will find food and truth. Good food always means health, amen! If you eat healthy you will stay healthy and I believe this is what the Word says. Jesus is the real food and He is more than enough for us that anything else satan might offer us. What would satan offer you? Another kind of food that will look similar to the real food. One thing could never be the same though – the taste. Have you ever eaten good bread? If so, then you can always tell it apart from the lower quality thing. If you have ever drunk water from a spring you will never forget its taste. If you have ever prayed before God from your heart and you have tasted His blessings any other prayer will feel learned and fake. I sometimes come across teachings with strange titles like “How to pray” and people easily start following models made up by people and that never work. Satan also offers a variety of choices: a prayer for sickness, a prayer for financial support, a prayer for demonic release, a prayer for repentance, a prayer for losing weight, a prayer for the breaking of a curse, a prayer to help with stupidity, a prayer for youth and so on. The main thing is to be able to offer a prayer for anything the world might want. Sounds like a good strategy, does it not? I can’t figure out how people fall for these things! There is only one prayer in the Word of God and it is written in Matthew 6. Everything else is made up by people. Another way for you to get healing and salvation is to pray to God from all your heart with all your strength and most of all go to Him! Amen! 

 

John 10:1 Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door but climbs in by another way, that man is a thief and a robber.

Don’t look at things with the eyes of the flesh but with the eyes of the Spirit if you don’t wish to fall into deceit and miss the truth that is in Christ. Jesus said that those who are led by the Spirit are God’s sons and daughters and you should never forget this. 

 

John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.

You can only have a good life in Christ and in no other way. If someone offers you freedom then they are liars, if they promise you healing they are liars, if they offer you eternal life they are liars but if they want to take you to the spring and the one true bread that is Jesus so that you could taste Him yourself follow them and you will have success. Amen! 

Notice what the leper did when he was not allowed to touch or communicate with anyone according to the law. He went straight to Jesus and bowed to Him. This is what everyone who need Jesus need to do today. Amen! Bow to Jesus and recognize Him for the Lord and Salvation that he is. The leper only asked Him if He would cleanse him. Jesus’s answer was simply “yes”. Hallelujah!

I am wondering what Jesus will answer you when you ask Him to save you, release you and heal you? Try it and tell me about it later.

With lots of love Pastor Vasil Petrov


Hello, church, 28th of October 2014

Psalm 17:1-6 “ Hear a just cause, O Lord; attend to my cry!

    Give ear to my prayer from lips free of deceit!

From your presence let my vindication come!

    Let your eyes behold the right!

You have tried my heart, you have visited me by night,

    you have tested me, and you will find nothing;

    I have purposed that my mouth will not transgress.

With regard to the works of man, by the word of your lips

    I have avoided the ways of the violent.

My steps have held fast to your paths;

    my feet have not slipped.

I call upon you, for you will answer me, O God;

    incline your ear to me; hear my words.”

 

Isn’t this what God hears coming out of your lips when you are praying to Him in the morning? Nice words and yet if you haven’t prayed this way until now it is time to do so. What is so exciting about that? Well, let me show you what excited me in this prayer of King David.

 

First of all: „my prayer from lips free of deceit”. I have always wanted one thing to remain unchanged in my life and this is when I pray to God to know in my heart that the words that come out of my mouth are a 100% free of deceit. Halleluiah! I personally believe that God listens to these kinds of prayes and answers them. It is my purpose to be truthful to God, to my wife, to the church and this has always made me feel free, strong, confident and happy.

Second of all: I want to know that when God looks upon my life, upon my spiritual heart, He sees no ill intention, no evil thoughts nor wishes. I wish to always be able to tell Him “You have tried my heart, you have visited me by night, you have tested me, and you will find nothing”. Are me and you brother or sister confident in these words when we stand before God? If your heart and consciousness don’t condemn you of anything, then your prayer will be heard.

 

Third: “I have purposed that my mouth will not transgress”. I should really watch out for this, Lord. Let my thoughts be pleasing to You and let them always be pure so that I could always speak your Word with blessing. I do not wish to speak more than what you have put in my heart and if I open my mouth I would hardly count the many blessings you have granted me personally.

 

Fourth: “my feet have not slipped”. No matter what my foes do to me this could not influence my spiritual life nor my relationship with God. Amen! Halleluiah! The acts of demons, people’s envy or arrogance has not kept me from loving You and following your path. My opponents have fallen under Your mighty fist and I have remained untouched because of Your protection. I stand firmly on the rock that is Jesus Christ and I will never slip nor fall because You are with me. 

 

And fifth: “I call upon you, for you will answer me, O God”. Dear brothers and sisters I want to be certain that you believe your prayers to God will bear fruit. There should be no uncertainty that He is listening to you and knows your thoughts. Thank God for His great mercy towards all of us and may His name be glorified forever.

 

With lots of love,

P.S. We had a great time with the Bulgarian evangelist church in London on the 26th of October in the Chelsea quarter with Pastor Dimitar Boiukliev. The hall was full of Bulgarians who live and work in London but also with guests from Bulgaria, Spain and other parts of England. I would like to say that God showed His great power in this place and His mercy and love could be felt from everybody as the Heavenly Kingdom was in that place. After I spoke from my heart the word that God had given me for this church the Holy Spirit started to perform His deeds in the hearts of the people. There was time for repentance, recovery and two souls wanted to receive the Holy Spirit more than anything. God did this dramatically and powerfully in the life of those people so that it could be read in their eyes and heart. Glory be to the Lord for our time there. God recovered the hearts of people who had lived with bitterness towards each other which was reason for great joy in all of us. Isn’t it great when brothers and sisters live together in unity? Amen! May God bless the Body of Christ – the church in London and may everybody stand together in the unity of God’s love to praise Him and honor Him in their hearts.

 

We will spend the next few days in Nottingham with our Internet church. The time I have with those people is truly valuable and exciting for me. The warmth and love that await us here are indescribable. God hasn’t stopped performing miracles in our lives every day and I will speak of them in my next messages to the church. May Jesus be glorified as a King, God and Savior. Amen!






Hello, church, 8th of October 2014


1 John 4:9 “This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.”

God has granted us the privilege to live forever through the Salvation in the name of Jesus Christ. I am not sure that every single person understands this fact from the Bible. Eternal life is a wonderful miracle in the life of those, who accept the Lord’s gift – His one begotten son Jesus Christ. Salvation comes from the Father of lights and not only that - it is a gift of His great love. We are all witnesses to the fact there is no love for the Father in this world, but the situation is different in the heavens – God’s love is spread across the hearts of all saints, angels and cherubs. This is why the Word tells us that the most important thing is to love one another from the heart just like God loves every single one of us. Amen!

Today I tell all of you who have cleansed your souls from sin through the blood of Jesus Christ:

1 Peter 1:22 „Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart.”

With lots of love for all saints,

Hello, church, 7th of October 2014

1 Corinthians 15:25-28 „For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death. For he “has put everything under his feet.”Now when it says that “everything” has been put under him, it is clear that this does not include God himself, who put everything under Christ. When he has done this, then the Son himself will be made subject to him who put everything under him, so that God may be all in all.”

Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior of the world, sent by the Father to save the sinners. Everyone knows that He was on this Earth, that He was crucified and buried and that He rose from the dead on the third day. Amen! This is the words that are spreading across the globe for centuries. This is the power of the blood of the New Testament that Jesus shed on the cross to grant freedom to the dying world as God showed himself as Jesus. Too little believers acknowledge the fact that God has already given Jesus power over everything – the powers of the heavens, the earth and the underworld. There is nothing that does not fall into Jesus’ rule. And when I say nothing, there is absolutely nothing in this world or the next that could take that power away from Jesus.

Philippians 2:9-11 „Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,  and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, the glory of God the Father.”

His obedience and humility earned Jesus this victory. This is also the power with which He obtained victory over death and hell. The love that was overflowing from Jesus’ heart destroyed the demon of hate and spiritual delusion. Nobody could overcome sin and be completely free of it and this is why Jesus came to destroy the acts of the devil. I hope to have encouraged you to look at the cross of Jesus and to accept His love through the Holy Spirit. Are you ready to be victorious in the name of Jesus? Is the aim of your life SALVATION, FREEDOM AND LIFE WITH GOD FOREVER?

The only one, to whom Jesus will bow his knee, is the Lord, who makes everything come together and who is in everything. Amen!

Be blessed and have a wonderful day.

With lots of love,

Pastor Vasil Petrov





Hello, church, 24th of September 2014

John 14:17-18 „The Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.

The world could have anything, it could build high towers, cure diseases, it could even walk on the moon, but what it can’t do is accept the truth or rather the Holy Spirit which brings the truth and sais who the Creator is. This Spirit comes from the Father and could lead people into knowing the truth. There is just a small problem for those, who like to test things – It does not work from a distance! The Holy Spirit is not a remote control! It is only sent to those, who are repenting of their sinful life and want for the Father to give them the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a spiritual baptism. Many people say they are looking for the truth but they never find it and it’s understandable why. They don’t find it because they are not looking for God. And when they say they have found the truth, it turns out to be a hoax, a disappointment and a deep pain. People are desperate and sinful and need guidance and spiritual leadership. Judas asks a misguided question to which Jesus answeres:

John 14:22-23 „Then Judas (not Judas Iscariot) said, “But, Lord, why do you intend to show yourself to us and not to the world?”Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.

Actually Judas wants to know what many people would like to know: why does God reveal Himself to some but not to everyone in this world? Jesus says that there is a place for God only in the hearts of those, who love Him and believe in His only begotten Son. What Jesus sais is that it is not all – God not only wants to reveal Himself to those people and never leave their hearts but to also make a home in their hearts. This is great news, people – having life in your heart and having it connected to God through His Holy Spirit! Now you understand why every truth of the Kingdom of God is revealed only in open loving and hearts full of grace. Now we can truly understand why God tests the hearts of the believers and wants to preserve their holiness. The Spirit of Truth, that is not accepted by the world, because it can’t see It. That is a major problem in the world. The world will never see the Holy Spirit, which means it will never know the Truth that is from God.

Look for It and accept the Holy Spirit if you would like to know God and don’t want to be like orphans in this world. God promises protection. Accept it!

Matthew 7:8 „For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”

Hello, church, 22th of September 2014

Matthew 13:23 „But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.”

When I read about the seed falling on good soil I think of you dear brothers and sisters, the church and body of Christ. It always produces crop whether little or a lot – those who hear and understand the Word. There are only two factors at play here – hearing and understanding, the rest is left to the Holy Spirit, meaning producing. Those who are afraid of producing and giving still have no seed within because they haven’t heard the Word nor have they understood it. Producing is not the same as arguing, giving is not the same as taking.

Acts 20:35 „In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.”

Anyone who is working hard needs to give. Work and labor is only blessed when it bears fruit. When you start giving to those who need it you start bearing fruit just like Jesus said. Don’t forget – hearing and understanding – the rest is easy.

God bless you, church!

Pastor Vasil Petrov


Hello, church, 18th of September 2014

Matthew 3:8 “Produce fruit in keeping with repentance.”

Is your heart free from sin through repentance? Many people are scared of repentance and this is understandable when they have demons. Others don’t understand it and believe it is no different than an excuse for past mistakes or believe they are forgiven but keep sinning all their lives and cannot understand why they always have heavy hearts even though they are of Christ.

Let me tell you a few things that will make you think about your precious life.

First of all you need to know that sin is a burden that we carry with us whether we like it or not and it could lead to spiritual and physical death. Sin could easily make us slip into satan’s net. Apostle Paul’s advice is: Hebrews 12:1 “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us”. You can’t serve the Lord when carrying around your burden of sin. That is why you need to get rid of it as soon as possible.

How do I do this? God has created the earth and everything on it funtions following specific laws and principles. The law commands. A law could change another law through God’s righteousness. The law of the Holy Spirit which we receive by God through Jesus Christ releaces us from the power of sin and death. Apostle Paul describes this in Romans 8:2: “because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.”

Being free from sin means to repent for your sins and ask Jesus Christ to forgive your every sin. You have to make the decision to never sin again realizing that it leads you away from God and it kills you. Allow for the Holy Spirit to work in you and make you holy.

No one in this world should despise the Lord’s kindness, forbearance and patience:

Romans 2:4-5 „Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, forbearance and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repentance?

But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God’s wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed. ”

Realize that repentance is something important and something that you need to do. You shouldn’t feel burdened when you repent for a sin. This brings you freedom in Christ.

Realize that your life after repentance bears fruit.

Matthew 7:20 „Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.”

Strong words but truthful. God is visible in our life when we bear fruit. This is what it means to be Christian, anything else is a compromise and it doesn’t fulfill the will of the Lord.

With lots of love Pastor Vasil Petrov


Hello, church, 16th of September 2014

Acts 2:28 You have made known to me the paths of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence.

Do you expect joy in the upcoming week? Should you be waiting for the Sunday service to ve filled with joy and inspiration? Where does the fire of hope and love come into your life from – from people of from God? Who is the source of power for your life – is it God or do you rely on yourself for everything?

This is how many questions there are in one human life and it is not just one. Billions of peple over the face of the earth need an answer to those questions. Everyone needs love, hope, faith. In acts apostle Peter spoke to the Jews and all inhabitants of Jerusalem and tried to explain what the source of happiness for those seemingly drunk but otherwise serious men was. The verse he uses as conformation to his words if found in the scripture of Joel. Isn’t it grand to be able to see the fulfillment of prophecies spoken long before you were ever born? Isn’t it a great joy to see with your own eyes the acts of God and to have the privilege to feel His presence?

In verse 28 the apostle continues to explain and testify to Gods acts through the christening of the apostles in the Holy Spirit using the word of King David. I can’t stop thinking of what the King of Israel spoke: “You have made known to me the paths of life”.

It is so wonderful to know that you have a set path for the salvation of your soul and that God has shown it to you through His son Jesus Christ – a path to salvation and eternal life.

John 14:6 “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Be thankful for your life every day and joy will fill your heart, church.

Hello, church, 18th August 2014

 Romans 13:10 „Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.”

How many of the believers today know truth and love? That is a good question as love and truth are two main factors in our spiritual life. The Bible tells us that everyone should test themselves and that is good because many people find it hard to accept when they are being exposed about what they do or about their hypocrisy.  These acts that set us apart from the truth are happening today and we have to expose them. In your daily life you meet different societies of believers who will testify that they know God and that they want to take you with them to their gatherings but you should ask yourselves if they truly know God. Many people say they abide God’s will but is that really so? Many say they communicate with Him and that they hear His voice but is that the truth? Not that I want to doubt the work of certain people but more than everything I would like to wake the active part of this generation and help them see the model behavior of the believer in the Bible and not the philosophy of someone who is way over their head in something they don’t really understand.

Anyone who vilifies is a slanderer. Anyone who blasphemes against his brother is a traducer, is that not so? The word tell us: 1 Corinthians 6:10 „nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.” Anyone who lies is of the devil and that is a fact. Anyone who hates his brother and does evil deeds has nothing to do with God. Anyone who judges will be judged by God. Anyone who calls his brother a vagabond will burn in hell and those are the words of Jesus: Matthew 5:22 „But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire.

Are we blind so that we don’t see what is happening around us or are we unable to tell what is right and what is wrong what is love and piece and what is injustice in a Christian society. Look around and when you see true believers their belief in God should show through their daily life. Without even saying a word they have to be an example and light of the world. Anyone who believes in God should keep away from evil deeds because God is love. Who saved your priceless life? Some church? No! A great protestant pastor? No! A doctrine or theology? No! Promises, promises and promises! If it is so then you are already confused. Wasn’t God’s great indescribable love of Christ what pierced your stone heart with a sword that comes out of God’s mouth? Yes, this is what brought you salvation piece and righteousness. Then keep living your life following the one true God. Do not put your trust in people nor build your house on sandy ground but put your trust in the Lord and follow His love. Love does no wrong to a neighbor – think about that and the Holy ghost will help you understand it completely.

If you are used to making compromises with sin now is the time to repent!

Revelation 2:16 „Therefore repent. If not, I will come to you soon and war against them with the sword of my mouth. ”

Have a blessed start of the new week, church,

We love you!

Hello, church, 12th August 2014

Mark 9:23 „And Jesus said to him, “‘If you can’! All things are possible for one who believes.””

Those are words of Jesus that I would like for you to hear today. All things are possible! Oh yes, everything… but isn’t that too much? When we use the word “everything” we usually don’t mean what is about to happen, while Jesus knows exactly what is going to happen. That is the big difference between us.

The people brought a boy with a spirit that made him mute to Jesus and when the spirit saw him, immediately it convulsed the boy, and he fell on the ground and rolled about, foaming at the mouth. The boy’s father asked Jesus for help and this was His answer: Бащата на момчето поиска помощ от Исус и той му каза точно тези думи; „If you can’! All things are possible for one who believes”

Did Jesus see lack of faith in that man that was caused by the hardship and endless struggle with the disease of the boy? I think that as the people saw there was no cure for the boy they thought that it will remain a burden for him and for the whole family until it dies. Can time make faith grow weary? Oh yes, continuous burden and misfortune makes faith grow weary.

Jesus could have sent the demon away even without talking to the father of the boy neither did he need the father’s faith to make that happen but why did he then say “If you can’! All things are possible for one who believes.” The answer to that question is in the Bible:

Hebrews 11:6 „And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.”

Of course – faith pleases God. In other words pleasing God means to abide His will. And what is His will?

1 John 5:14 „And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.”

Jesus said clearly “If you can’! All things are possible for one who believes” or in other words if you please God by abiding His will, anything will be possible. Amen! And the result is complete salvation and healing!

I believe that all this is possible for the one who has faith. Do you?

Proverbs 30:24-28 Four things on earth are small, but they are exceedingly wise: the ants are a people not strong, yet they provide their food in the summer; the rock badgers are a people not mighty, yet they make their homes in the cliffs; the locusts have no king, yet all of them march in rank; the lizard you can take in your hands, yet it is in kings' palaces.

We hardly have time left to pay attention to the small things since we are so used to great things and big dreams. Are small things important and to whom? Of course they are important and if not to all of us then to God. And why is that? Because God is the Creator and he makes things happen by just saying it. He made some things seem noticeable, others not so much, some are made for good use while others are not and so He is the Creator of all. Jesus himself tells those, who were following him not to write small things off as beneath their notice. Have you ever asked yourselves the question: “Why did God made people be born babies and then grow to become adults? God could have made people be born at the age of 20 and let them go live their own lives.” No, every little thing born into this world is small and helpless, isn’t it? It needs someone to take care of it in order to grow. God is taking care of everything on this Earth and this is the reason Jesus speaks the words “Do not be anxious about your life”. 

Matthew 6:25-32 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.

Little things are usually left unnoticed. Could that happen to us in everyday life, in church? Yes it could be and already is. Why? Because if you are already an adult, there are some, who are not yet adults. They also need to grow into adulthood the way you did. You cannot be asking of people, who have just seen God, to be perfect the way “you are” when you yourlself have had years and years of perfecting yourself and yet your life is still not perfect.  Despising someone means to scorn them. Jesus warned us not to do that:

Matthew 18:10-14 “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven. What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and go in search of the one that went astray? And if he finds it, truly, I say to you, he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine that never went astray. So it is not the will of my Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish. ”

The little ones should be not left to die, we should provide them with a good spiritual environment so that they could live and grow. Solomon speaks of four little things, which people discard or think unworthy of their attention, but they exist and they all have their meaning. How many of you pay attention to ants – yes, those ants you think about only when they start swarming over you when you decide to make a picnic next to their nest. It doesn’t feel good, does it? They are small, but they gather their food in summer so that they are provided for in winter. They don’t look strong, but they are wise. People don’t always seem much wiser than ants.  The rock badger is also small and weak. It has n tail and his skin is dark. His legs have no fur; his nails are flat except for the nail on his inner toe, which is long and bent. The rock badgers can’t dig, they live in holes in the rocks. Solomon calls them “people not mighty” but yet they are wise. They are easily scared but they know how to make their home secure. They are, but some people make the biggest messes when they want to make their place of living their home. The locusts can jump pretty high and can even be found on the third store of an apartment building. They have no king but they move together – they always look like they are marching in rank. It’s hard for most people to do that these days – be well organized. And the lizard, yes, the lizard is as scary as his big cousin the crocodile, but he is so small, that when you catch him you can see how vulnerable it is. Indeed, but if you try to get into the palace of the Queen of England, it wouldn’t be that easy if you have no invitation. Other come and go from that palace easily. It is good for us to think about the little things as the

Word tells us and learn from every little thing so we could grow wiser and know the Truth.

Hello, church, 4 July 2014

Romans 13:8-10 Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

It’s never a good thing to owe somebody something is it? Many people today know what it means to owe someone, so the words of the apostle are very relevant. Most of the people today have to pay back loans, credits, rent. When you owe someone something you are always under pressure and when you give back what you owe you feel like a weight has been lifted. In the previous verse the apostle says that it’s better to get those things off your back before they become a burden.  Romans 13:7 „Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed.” He says: do the right thing. To my mind comes the story of how the Pharisees tested Jesus: Matthew 22:17-21 „Tell us, then, what you think. Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?” 18 But Jesus, aware of their malice, said, “Why put me to the test, you hypocrites? 19 Show me the coin for the tax.” And they brought him a denarius.[a] 20 And Jesus said to them, “Whose likeness and inscription is this?” 21 They said, “Caesar's.” Then he said to them, “Therefore render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's.” Apostle Paul tells the church in Rome that there is one thing they should always have in their lives and it is love. In other words this is like the feeling of urgency to return what you owe, because you know that there is no escape from that and that you have to do it. The urge or the constant reminder from the Holy Spirit in your heart – loving thy neighbor like you love yourself is written not in ink, but by His Holy hand. Apostle Paul tells the church in Corinth of the love they have for them deep in their hearts: 2 Corinthians 3:2 „You yourselves are our letter of recommendation, written on our hearts, to be known and read by all.” Loving thy neighbor means to fulfill God’s commandments and to obey them. Don’t love on paper but love people in deeds, so that Jesus is glorified in your life. 

1 John 3:18 „Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.”

May God be glorified in your life every day.

Have a blessed day, church.

Hello, church, 30 June 2014

Matthew 24:12-13 „And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But the one who endures to the end will be saved. ”

Lawlessness is not only sin; it is more of a failure. Living outside of God’s commandments means to make up your own rules, by which to live. This means that you have pride, which comes before failure, ego, which leads to sin, and you easily get tangled up in the traps the devil sets for you. Lawlessness destroys human nature, because it doesn’t abide God’s commandments, which lead people to a full life. Jesus said that John 10:10 “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”

Jesus also said that lawlessness grows. That is a process of rebellion against the Creator in human nature. When this is not stopped in time, the worst fate that could befall humanity – losing the love – starts to take shape.

Could someone be saved if they don’t have love? How would you answer that question if you were asked by God himself? Jesus told the fanatical Jews that they have no love for the Lord, even though they claimed the opposite. He told them that they don’t love the Word of God, which means they only seek their own gain and not God. He told them they read the Scriptures because they think they will find eternal life in them, but they don’t seek the Lord, who is life itself. The moral of the story is that they don’t love God and they should repent.

John 5:38-42 „and you do not have his word abiding in you, for you do not believe the one whom he has sent. You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me, yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life. I do not receive glory from people. But I know that you do not have the love of God within you. ”

Are there people in that situation nowadays? Without calling themselves Jews, Pharisees or believers, they are left without the love of God and with only the religious spirit, which leads them to certain death. Lawlessness is the reason love leaves your life, so be quick to repent and to do the Lord’s work in your life. Jesus continues with the words:  „But the one who endures to the end will be saved.” What should one endure? Love! Pure, true love towards God and people. Lawlessness doesn’t belong in heaven and many people will be left outside His Kingdom if they do not do His acts of righteousness, which they were called to do.

Matthew 7:21-23 „Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.”

Don’t allow lawlessness in your life and rebellion in your heart take you further away from God’s Kingdom, which is joy, peace and righteousness in the Holy Spirit.

Hello, church, 26th June 2014 The aroma of life

2 Corinthians 2:16 „to one a fragrance from death to death, to the other a fragrance from life to life. Who is sufficient for these things?

Let us first say that the fragrance touches all 5 senses of a person – sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch. A fragrance brings a breeze of smell to us, which our olfactory organs could sense. We are not death or life for people, but we bring with us this breeze of smell with the message from God we bring to their spiritual self. Speaking of the aroma of the Word we mean that people should acknowledge Jesus Christ as the Lord and Savior of the world. In verse 14 we read: „But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere.” Let me ask you a question: How does a baby smell? I am not talking about when it’s done a mess… I mean when it’s nice and clean. No one will be able to describe how it smells. We don’t spray the baby with Coco Chanel, so it will smell better. Each baby has its own fragrance. I have seen people hugging a baby and enjoying its aroma. I believe that through knowing God and walking in His path people carry His fragrance of love. It cannot be seen, heard, touched, but it’s there. You could always tell when someone has gone through a complete transformation. Even people who walk in sin could sense this fragrance. For some it is the smell of life while it reminds others of their impending doom through sin. People die because the lack of knowledge nowadays. Many of them don’t understand who the Lord is and what He has done for them. Let me give you one more example. When we were in Jerusalem, Israel this year, we visited Jesus’s grave. There was holy oil coming out of the cracks of the stone He was laid on. People went there to soak towels or scarf’s in it. My wife also took some of the oil on her scarf and the aroma was there for a long time. That was a strong fragrance and anyone could feel it. Even when we came back to Bulgaria people could still smell the aroma from her scarf. I thought that if we stay close to the Lord every day, if we spend enough time with His through the Truths of His Word, the aroma of His presence will be part of our life too. The fragrance of life, which we bring to the dying world. Amen. Verse 15 tells us that are aroma for everybody.

„For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing,”

When Mary washed Jesus’ feet with holy oil, the whole room was filled with its aroma. John 12:3 „Mary therefore took a pound of expensive ointment made from pure nard, and anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped his feet with her hair. The house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.”

You could bring that holy oil, which you took from Jesus into your home. This aroma doesn’t wear off that easily. People could tell you to stop talking about Jesus, they can even forbid you from doing that, but the aroma of life will always be present in your home, because Jesus himself lives in your life. Be the aroma of God for this world. Amen!

Matthew 11:28 „Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

The world is steadily becoming unsafe. Sometimes people can’t handle the pressure, because their nervous system is made to prosper in peace. The lack of balance nowadays is burdening and tiring people out. Many people are possessed by demons without realizing it. That is the reason why many of them are depressed, other see no way out, have no hope or future. This destroys their already damaged mind. Why do we see more and more young people seeking help from psychiatrists, take sedatives in large doses? Why do young people take drugs, drink alcohol, have sex at a very young age? They are running away from reality and the inability to find a way out of the crisis they find themselves in. They only see failure in everything they do or sometimes they are just under appreciated. As we were walking with my wife in the center yesterday we overheard a group of teenagers say: “When I got drunk yesterday…” That was too much for me to hear. I felt sick and I told this to my wife. I told her what a pity it was that everything in the life of those young people has something to do with getting drunk. If they get drunk, then they don’t have joy, peace or a purpose in their lives. What a pity indeed – all they can brag about is that they achieved something only after they got drunk. Is there a way out of this situation? Yes there is an answer but only through the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus is calling onto all, who labor and are heavy laden: “Come”. Jesus is calling onto everyone who works all day and their own lifestyle if deadly to them: “Come”. He invites everyone, who lack joy and peace in their hearts”Come to me all”. Jesus wants to bring peace into everyone’s life, because every life is crafted by God’s hand with lots of love. Come to the Lord and find peace for your soul.

Hello, church, 23rd June 2014

2 Corinthians 1:21-24 And it is God who establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us, and who has also put his seal on us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee. But I call God to witness against me—it was to spare you that I refrained from coming again to Corinth. Not that we lord it over your faith, but we work with you for your joy, for you stand firm in your faith.

What is faith? Hebrews 11:1. „Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”

How does faith come into the human heart? Romans 10:17 „So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.”

Through whom? Romans 10:13-15 “For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard?And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”"

Indeed, anyone, who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved, but how can someone do that without faith. It’s very hard. People don’t get saved by their own will; this is a gift from God and one, that is given in a certain way. In order to come close to the truths of the Kingdom of God, people need to hear about Him. This will only happen when a preacher is sent to them. There is another requirement that is equally important though. Not every preacher abides the Lord’s will, especially when he hasn’t been sent to do it. Those kinds of preachers will never be used by God. The one, who God sends, is anointed not by people, but by the Lord. Amen. It is for those kinds of preachers that the Word tells us: "How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!"

Apostle Paul tells the church in Corinth, that he refrained from coming again to Corinth, because people there are starting to think, that he is trying to lord over their faith. How pitiful does this look – missing on the presence of the apostle just because you think he is looking to rule over you. This is to the detriment of the church in Corinth. The apostle explains that he doesn’t lord over their faith, which comes from God, but his job and his wish is that he works with them for their joy. The devil is scared of happy people. Why? Because the Kingdom of God is peace, joy and righteousness in the Holy Spirit. Because the joy in the Lord is our strength. Because the joyful person isn’t a nagger. Because the joyful person deosn’t think of rebellion, gossip, bad mood and discord. The joyful person is strong, because he rejoices in the truth and righteousness and is always used by the Lord. The wealth of a person is not in physical, it is what he has in his heart. Those are word of Jesus Christ. Look for what comes from above so that your joy is always full. Amen!

Matthew 13:44 „The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.”

Hello, church, 7th June 2014

Today starts the 4th annual Conference of the Bulgarian churches and ministries in Europe 7-8th June 2014 in London. Let us all stand united in faith and beliefs and pray for the destruction of the devil’s work, which is envy, splitting, gossiping, provocation, treachery, hate, arrogant heart. May the church (the body) of Christ unite under God’s powerful hand compromising and the forces of darkness. Let us sanctify ourselves through God’s word and prayer and pray to God to forgive our every mistake and our guilt. God wants to restore long abandoned places and will make that happen through people, who are hungry for righteousness and those, who praise Him with a pure heart. The Bible tells us a fact: the gates of hell, which means the power, which hell has, will not overcome the body of Christ – the church. We believe we are more than winners in the name of Jesus Christ, who is our Lord. Pray for peace, joy and righteousness in the Holy Spirit and may the hand of the Almighty protect us from harm. Amen!

We won’t be able to broadcast the conference live, because there are no conditions for that, but you will be able to watch it on tape right after we come back from this journey. On the site of the ministry there will be a sermon on tape which everyone could watch.

God has truly provided us with glorious times and we are all using this time for the Kingdom.

We pray for all of you because we love you and we have faith you will have a blessed time in the Lord these couple of days.

John 5:25 Very truly I tell you, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live.

Luke 20:38 He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive.

Hello, church, 6th June 2014

Luke 6:43“ No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit.”

What does it mean to have a good life? Let me think – what do people say these days? Men want to be like Konchita or for those, who don’t know who that is – I can simply describe her as the bearded woman. Men are not those old-time giants, described in Genesis. They are more modern and flexible creatures, some wearing heels, others in skirts as I’ve seen on the streets of Nottingham. 

Genesis 6:4 „The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.”

Even scarier is the fact that nobody sees this as something wrong and immoral. And the worst part is that no church wants to speak publicly about this problem. Why isn’t John the Baptist here to make this generation repent! Where are the prophets of the End times who will show what is sin and what is not clearly to the world? 

What does it mean to have a good life? Maybe a good life is driving the best car in the world and park it in the garage of a seemingly office building or a museum, which is actually your house? When will the human heart hava had enough of this earth and say enough”? Never, believe me, and if you don’t trust me, trust the Word of God. 

Proverbs 14:14. „The faithless will be fully repaid for their ways,

    and the good rewarded for theirs.”

 

What is within us? Jesus tells us that the good tree will bear good fruit and when he spoke he meant this for everybody. If a person has a good heart what he does, what he wears, what he speaks, what he gives will be good. Apostle Paul told the church that it can follow his example the way he follows Christ’s. That means to have a good example and to be a good example. What example are we for society? Does someone want to mimic our behavior and are we an example for the people around us? Do you make an impression with the way you act, speak, live? A good and full life could only be the one with Jesus Christ. John 1:4 „In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.” Who was Jesus? He was the light of all mankind. What did he want for his desciples to be? The salt and the light of this world.

What is one’s life? The first thing that comes to my mind is temporary. James 4:14 „Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.”

How should we have a fulfilling life on this earth so that we are not ashamed of what we have left behind? The best thing I can think of is to know Jesus Christ. Why? Because Jesus is the one true life. He’s an example to follow, the true goodness of this world. He is eternal life, which means and unending source. What do you think of when we say that someone is lively? There are people, who are full of energy and there are those, who take pills in order to be that way. There are healthy people and there are those, who need to take pills just to stay alive. There are people, who are strong and there are those, who can barely walk. Jesus came, so that we can have a fulfilling life. Amen! Nothing more! He is the only one, who can give us eternal life – something no one on this earth could grant you.

John 17:3 „Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.”

Do you want to live an eternal life and be strong and healthy hear on this earth? Yes! I can’t believe you said that. Alright, then this is the answer. Follow Christ, not a religion. Be followers of the Living God and you will live. Walk with the Strong and you will become strong. Love the Lord and He will lead all of you who love Him to the eternal place for you in heaven.

Hello, church, 31st May 2014

Ephesians 1:13-14 In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.

The word of TRUTH! Some people still wonder where to seek the truth. Some look for it persistantly, others don’t even care about it, come what may. Those, who don’t care about the truth, rely on their luck until their luck gives out. What a fate! Those who seek the truth come to the Word of God sooner or later and most of all find the gospel of Christ. They don’t need luck or good fortune. They seek security and a nice future and know what they want. God has well for the life of those, who believe in the truth, which is Christ, with all their hearts. The gospel or the proclamation of salvation which was revieled to us in Jesus Christ made us accept something which is rejected by the human mind. The Holy Spirit! Many people don’t know anything about the Holy Spirit and so they choose not to go deeper into the matter and talk about it. Many people mention the Holy Spirit only when they are praying a religious prayer - in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. The last thing we mention in our prayers is the first thing God guarantees will bring our salvation. The word guarantees means that God will never change His mind until everything else, which is foretold, comes to be. The Holy Spirit is the seal of God in our hearts in a letter, which the Lord himself has written.

2 Corinthians 3:3 „And you show that you are a letter from Christ delivered by us, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts. ”

Do I and you want to be this letter to the people in this world? Of course we do. Anyone, who opens this letter and looks into our hearts, must see the words of the gospel. Amen! Any true believer must live as a testimony of His glory. The Holy Spirit is a seal, which means God’s law, a conformation that our spiritual self is alive. A seal is a promise God will never leave you and will never forget about you. This is an eternal symbol of God’s revelation to anyone, who has accepted the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Never forget, children of God, that you have been bought with a price, so praise God with the life He has given you. Don’t become slaves to humans and made up stories but rejoice in the life of freedom, in which He leads you. God has a plan for the life of every person – how to incorporate them into His New Testament, how to make them part of the great salvation of this world, how to surround them with people, who truly live His will. It’s wonderful to know that you are part of a major plan, which will one day come to be and anyone will be able to see the fulfillment of a promise, which is so ancient. Every knee shall bow to His – the great ruler, God of eternity, the first and the last, the beginning and the end, the alpha and omega, the King of kings. Bow to Him with all your heart and accept the Holy Spirit as a seal of your salvation.

If you want to join a church without borders, the body of Christ, which consists of Christians from all over the world regardless of skin colour, race, education or social status, if you want to stop being ignored and not feel like outsiders anymore, “Internet church”, which means an international ministry with pastor Vasil Petrov will accept you and will help you come to know the Truth, which will set you free. It will show you the way which leads to Christ and you won’t be lonely any more, but be part of the household of Christ! Amen! Ephesians 2:19 „So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God”

God bless you and fill you with the Spirit of revelation so you may know the power of His glory.

Healing from cancer of the lips of Maria Vulkova from Gabrovo city. May 11th, 2014.

James 5:13 - Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.

There are cases when rejoice because everything in life is going well , but there are times when fear and despair can take sudden control and dominance when bad news catch up .

When we are sick we should pray when someone suffers badly need to have faith that God will heal him and with everyone doing what , according to the work of the ministry he had received from the Lord.

Such is the case with a woman from our church that says Maria Vulkova . Soon the mouth of the woman goes something like a small backpack , and she thinks it's something harmless. Only a few weeks education becomes huge and it goes to your personal doctor . This is heard as a result of the diagnosis is that there is a form of oral cancer . Her daughter takes her and leads her in Sofia, where he was sent to onkobolnitsa treatment . The professor , who sees it says it can not do anything because cutting the lip will disfigure the woman , and that does not mean that cancer will suspend its here. Doctor himself said that the only hope and help for her Lord . All begin to pray hard for our sister , and when she came back in Gabrovo My wife and I went home and to make this work that God has given me an opportunity and privilege of the employee.

James 5:14-15 " Is any sick from you? Let him call for the elders of the church and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord . And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. "

I spoke the word of God , which is truth and freed faith in the heart of our sister , and then gave the Lord's Supper and prayed for her faith chased by the demon of cancer and did anointing with oil in the name of the Lord . Believed God for a miracle with all who were praying for the healing of this woman. A few weeks later she was loosed from the snares of the disease and today it is completely healed . Doctors also praised God as healer . Glory be to the Lord Jesus Christ now and forever. Amen

Proverbs 24:10 „If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small.”

This is the criteria for the strength of your spirit. What happens to you when hardship comes? That is when things in your life don’t turn out as expected. The circumstances around you don’t hold place for much hope and a way out. How could you be strong at times like this?

The Word tells us that the Lord is the God of power. He has the power over everything – visible and invisible. He gives strength to those, who need it.

Isaiah 40:29 „He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength”

Твърденията на Исая са верни и истинни защото са ясно потвърдени и от Христос.

Matthew 11:28 „Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

Jesus uses the word “all”, when He describes those, who go through hardship. Have some time to think about what is hard for you these days and write it on a piece of paper. You can have that list with you when you pray and ask of the Lord that He fulfills His promise. Will He answer your prayer? I believe strongly He will, because He keeps His promises. God has power in the life of those who have faith. Amen! Can you believe that with me?

Ephesians 1:19 „and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might”

Apostle Paul says that God acts with power in the lives of those, who have faith. Why don’t you try this in your own life? Get over the barriers of your former thinking and over the limits of possible where God is. There you will find wonders even before they have come to be. This is what we call faith – believing before seeing that God will do as He has promised and performing acts of faith. Many people are scared of failure and just sit on the couch desperate and complaining of the hard life they are leading. Many are depressed, others just rely on luck. Here is what apostle Paul would advise you to do: 

Ephesians 6:10. „Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.”

Come on, stand up - Ephesians 5:14. „Awake, O sleeper,

    and arise from the dead,

and Christ will shine on you”

Change this proverb so that is says the following for your life: “If you show confidence in hardship, your strength will be great!” Amen!

May God bless you today, church!

Hello, church, 1st May 2014

Luke 10:7 And remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they provide, for the laborer deserves his wages. Do not go from house to house.

Everyone on this Earth does some kind of work in any way they can and as God provides them with strength, gifts, knowledge and wisdom to do so. Jesus told His disciples that anyone, who works for people or the Lord, should be rewarded for their work. And not only that but the working man deserves his wages. There are many people working in different areas and that makes each one of us unique. First of all I believe that we should thank the Lord for our health, which allows us to work. Sick people cannot do that. They usually need someone healthy to take care of them. This is why we need to thank the Lord for our health and strength and for the work that is our blessing no matter where we are and what we do. Having a good job is a true blessing isn’t it? Which one of you wants to have a good job? I will tell you the secret to achieving this goal:

Luke 11:9-10 „And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.”

God truly has many orders and rules for Israel to follow. One of them is that one should not agree to an unfair job. This is God’s will. Do you know how many people today want to find a good job and pray to God so: “God, I pray that you give me some kind of work” I think this is the wrong way to pray and it won’t be heard by God. Why so? Because God will not give you and bless you with something that leads you to performing sin. Here’s what He says to the children of Israel:

Exodus 23:7-8 „Keep far from a false charge, and do not kill the innocent and righteous, for I will not acquit the wicked. 8 And you shall take no bribe, for a bribe blinds the clear-sighted and subverts the cause of those who are in the right.”

Many people nowadays work as if they could finish everything that is to be done. Many become workaholics and start forgetting, that there must remain time for everything:

Ecclesiastes 3:1 „For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven„

I can see that there is always work so it is important that you not only do your job, but that you also find time to talk to God and find rest in Him. To have time to thank His for everything He gives you. Apostle Paul says one must keep the foundation which is laid that leads to salvation and to be careful of how we do that:

 1 Corinthians 3:11-16 For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw— each one's work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done. If the work that anyone has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward. If anyone's work is burned up, he will suffer loss, though he himself will be saved, but only as through fire. Do you not know that you are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you?

Every labor will be paid for, so each one of us must be careful of how we work. Each one of us must learn to thank God for everything – big or small – and do every job as if we work for the Lord himself. Here is a good advice on how to start your work day with joy and do everything with love:

Colossians 3:23 „Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men.”

Knowing this, you have the power to put it into action. This will make you truly happy, because God will be there wherever you are. Amen!

Hello, church, 28th April 2014

1 John 2:2 „He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.”

Jesus Christ was the victim to our sinful human nature. Our intelligence and knowledge can in no way lead us to the Truth of God in our life. The word “mercy” speaks more than all human knowledge in this world. Jesus told the scribes and Pharisees this;

Matthew 9:13. „Go and learn what this means, ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’ For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”

Have you ever asked yourself the question to what extent do I know Jesus Christ as my Savior and the Lord as my Father? Does your knowledge of God change you or are you still the old dirty crock, lying unneeded in a corner of the human history. The truth of rediscovering yourself and finding where you belong in society could be found in the Word of God. It’s not hard to rethink your life and start over. It’s never too late! The worst thing is to deny the opportunity to confront the wrong in your life and submit to the Truth, which is God, you’re your whole life. The mercy is not that withered part of our life, that has to be rebuilt, neither is it an emotion, which comes up in our mind from time to time on holidays. God is Love! He is the true mercy and righteousness. The love of God and His great mercy leads us back to Him. If we could know God, we could understand what the word “love” means and we would learn what “mercy” is. God doesn’t need our sacrifices, holidays, traditions and fanatic worship. What He looks for in us is just an open heart for Him.

1 John 4:10 „In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.”

Jesus sacrifices himself, becoming our advocate before the Lord. We don’t need a person to put a good word for us to God, but the One, who truly loved us with all His heart and gave himself for all of us. Apostle Paul opens up his heart to Тимотей in ruthless declarations about himself, which clearly states that he has overcome his sinful nature.

1 Timothy 1:16 „But I received mercy for this reason, that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might display his perfect patience as an example to those who were to believe in him for eternal life.”

Received mercy applies to my and your life all the same. Nothing to be proud of, am I right? Received means: “He gave me” and I have done nothing to deserve it. Amen!

Let us worship Him today and give Him all the glory with Spirit and Truth.

With lots of love to the church,

1 Timothy 2:4 “who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.”

God is truly a good God! Many people don’t believe that, because sadly they don’t encounter much good in this world. Jesus says that His kingdom is not of this world: John 8:23 „He said to them, “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world.” John writes something shocking, something that many people today can’t handle. 1 John 2:15 „Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”And so only one thing remains – to be able to believe that God really has so much love for us. We should believe it not in the way we agree with someone else’s opinion, but in such a way that this impulse of God’s blessing starts something new in our changed heart. God doesn’t want anyone to perish, but everyone to come to salvation and so He sent His only begotten son Jesus Christ. Amen. This is the manifestation of His everlasting love. We should know that His great mercy and love are shown only through His justice and truth. We can’t know God if we don’t seek the Truth.  We cannot truly believe in the Lord if we don’t agree with the Truth. We won’t be able to change if we don’t live the Truth. God will save all those people, who come to know the Truth. If you want to achieve anything in this world, you have to act and not just sit around.

 Jesus says: Luke 11:10 „For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.”

If you are depressed,  desperate, sick or spiritually crippled by life, it is time to look up to your Salvation, that is Jesus Christ.

God bless you, church,

 John 17:1-5 „When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you, 2 since you have given him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him. 3 And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. 4 I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave me to do. 5 And now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed.”

A single prayer describes the meaning of serving the Lord and the power of the personification of Jesus Christ. 

John 1:14 „And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.”

Jesus knew, that that time has come for Him to go to the Father, so He prayed, that the people, who were meant for salvation, would find God and believe that He is the one true God and that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world. Jesus also prayed for those, who were meant to continue the work of God. John 17:9 „I am praying for them. I am not praying for the world but for those whom you have given me, for they are yours.”

Maybe this prayer was meant for you too! Maybe those great words of the Creator of the universe are meant for you. Maybe now more than ever you should know and understand the heart of the Lord, revealing to you the way to eternal life. Jeremiah 21:8 „And to this people you shall say: ‘Thus says the Lord: Behold, I set before you the way of life and the way of death.”

Jesus continued to pray for christening, protection, for the Lord’s peace for His apostles, but He didn’t forget about us either. Did you know, that Jesus meant you, when he was praying? Listen to that: John 17:20 „I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word.”

If the teaching of the apostles and the words of Christ touched you, then this prayer means so much to you, just as it does for so many others. Can you believe, that Jesus prayed with tears in His eyes that you are one of those, who will always see His glory. Read this verse and you will know that it’s the truth: John 17:24 „Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world.” Jesus really sais that doesn’t He? He wants to be with you, so we could all be one, just like He is one with the Father. Your heart must seek unity, you should be striving for peace, you should live up to God’s expectations and justify Jesus’ expectations. John 17:25-26 „O righteous Father, even though the world does not know you, I know you, and these know that you have sent me. I made known to them your name, and I will continue to make it known, that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.”

Jesus said, that the love of God will fill our hearts and that will keep us from this corrupt world. He said, that this love is forever in the hearts of those, who acceot it and will remain there, so that they are one body. No theology, no religion, no idolatry, no human following, no rites and humanly corrupted ministries, no false gifts, no false prophesies, no, no, no and no!  Everything that could restore, repair and inspire us to stay in the Body of Christ as one and continue to follow Him with the same passion as before is Love. Think about this these days and God will reveal everything to you. Think about that face, the face of Jesus Christ, but not the one you could see from all those pictures and films these days, but the face, that the Holy Spirit will reveal to you in prayer. Amen!

Hello, church, 16th of April 2014

Psalm 84:11 „For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly.”

This psalm is a perfect example of what we should be praying for – even if you don’t pray that good things come to you, they will surely come when you walk uprightly and pure heartedly . You don’t even have to look for those things, because the Word tells us that God will give them to you. What this means is that He won’t forget, damage or disregard. But is that how things happen every time? Definitely not! Another verse tells us: Jeremiah 5:25 „Your iniquities have turned these away, and your sins have kept good from you.”God doesn’t keep good things from us, this is our own doing – that’s what happens if we sin deliberately. Someone might ask – what is actually sin? Every unlawful act is sin. Jesus died on the cross, so we could be free from sin and become pure. Apostle Paul tells Titus 2:14 „who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.” Walking uprightly doen’t mean to just not hate anybody – it also means to perfect in performing good deeds. And because people are not very good at performing good and righteous deeds, the Word tells us that God is powerful – He will prepare, perfect and make all grace abound to us, so we may abound in every good work: 2 Corinthians 9:8”And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.” God won’t forget to make each and one of us strong, to bless us and to fill us with His Holy Spirit. All we need to do is really want to serve the Lord and the people. Amen! Apostle Paul says that he has complete confidence in the Lord. Do you? Do you have complete faith that everything that God has started within you will be fully perfected? Yes, I am confident in myself and I am confident in you. Amen!

Philippians 1:6 „And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”

Hello, church, 14th of April 2014

1 Corinthians 2:1-5 „And I, when I came to you, brothers, did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom. For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness and in fear and much trembling, and my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.”

Apostle Paul speaks to the church in Corinth and reminds people there of the way he got through to their hearts. How did this happen and why is it so important? He reminds them, that, pay attention, I did not come to you with lofty speech or wisdom. Many preachers of the Word of God aim to be more expressive. They even copy one of their charismatic idols’ way of speaking to try and impress their audience. They want to be heard and followed because of the knowledge they have gathered through reading Christian literature, watching Christian TV shows or just by imitating other ministries. Let me tell you this, anyone, who does this, regardless of sex, skin color or situation, is not doing himself a favour. Apostle Paul tells us, that he got through to the people with one simple message – the message of the cross. And he adds „I decided to know nothing among „ – even though he knows so much already. I think it’s very hard for people, who know a lot, to speak little. At least for me that was and still is a challenge. Continuing, the apostle says that his preaching was not the wisdom of men – very powerful words! Many believers today try to convince their relatives or not Christian friends that Jesus is alive.  This inevitably leads to their failure and sucks out their faith in God. Even if someone believes in Jesus Christ by reason of your persistence and persuasion, they might not always keep their faith in the future. Here is something important for you to learn today: the proof of the Holy Spirit and His power is what arouses the faith in the Lord and binds people to Him. It’s sometimes better to just live your life in Christ and let others see what that means. Whether the tree is good or bad is only defined by the fruit it bears. Amen!

Matthew 12:33 “Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit bad, for the tree is known by its fruit.”

Proverbs 26:2 „Like a sparrow in its flitting, like a swallow in its flying, a curse that is causeless does not alight.”

Nothing in our lives is there accidentally whether it is a blessing or a curse. The choice of how you live is made every day – what you say, what you eat, everything. Your mouth could speak a curse, dissatisfaction, doubt, gossip, envy, your mouth could be speaking proudly, but it could also speak blessings, kindness, all that is good for building up, as fits the occasion, to proclaim boldly the secret of the Word of God. You could perform good or bad deeds; you could choose to act or to do nothing; you could build or destroy; you could gather or divide - but you will answer to the Lord for everything you do.

Acts 13:49 „And the word of the Lord was spreading throughout the whole region. But the Jews incited the devout women of high standing and the leading men of the city, stirred up persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and drove them out of their district. But they shook off the dust from their feet against them and went to Iconium. And the disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.”

If you ever hear that the teaching of God is being spread in a whole country, what would your primal reaction be? Halleluiaaaaah! You will be full of joy in the Spirit or you will be jealous that you are not part of that? Take a moment to think about it.

A sign of hypocrisy is when people don’t enjoy the spreading of the Word of God.  Let me tell you else is not happy about that – the devil. He is a father of lies and is always lying. This is why the apostles were often persecuted just because they were preaching the truth about the word of God. It is one thing to talk about your belief in the Lord and a completely different thing to preach, which is given only to people, who have been called by God to do so. He has summoned His church not to stay passive, but to take part in preaching the gospel in every way possible – a blessed act. Persecution of people, who preach the gospel, takes many different forms. Sometimes it is with aggressive behavior, words, lies, but it could also become physical. It is not uncommon that people, who preach the gospel, have been killed over that by the devil.

Persecution and rejection of saints, who are devoted to preaching the gospel is being compared to dust on our feet - the unneeded, unwanted, dirty and spreading disease dust. Nobody brings dirt home; nobody collects it as if it is something of value. We always brush it off. This is what the people, who are obstructing the preaching of the gospel, are being compared to because they always try to fill the ones, who are faithful with hatred through endless malicious attacks and slander. The apostles knew what they needed to do – they just brushed off the dust off their feet and paid little attention to it. Afterwards their hearts were filled with joy in the Holy Spirit and they continued their work of preaching the gospel and the Kingdom of God with boldness and confidence in the Lord. Amen!

Love and encourage the preachers of the word of God, who are faithful in deeds and have a pure heart. Pray for them daily, because their deeds are blessed. 1 Timothy 5:17„Let the elders who rule well be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in preaching and teaching.”

Proverbs 10:19” When words are many, transgression is not lacking, but whoever restrains his lips is prudent.”

Talkativeness and excessive talking are an area of demonic obsession. The verse indicates that this is not only a human trait and lack of restraint. Many people nowadays lack the ability to bridle their tongue and they talk too much, which inevitably leads to sin. Have you met people, who can’t catch their breath when they speak, they don’t even think about what they are saying. That is a problem that we all need to solve. Many of those people need to be liberated. James 1:26; „If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person's religion is worthless.” Kind and pure at heart is not the one, who acts that way, but the one, who has managed to keep his tongue from excessive, lying, wrong words. This is also the first form of a truly healthy spiritually person. If you learn how to control your tongue, you have learned to control your whole body. A person, who could manage that, is pure of heart and has a kind soul. Amen! When you come across a person who gossips, is envious, spiteful, stuck-up, speaks without saying anything, you know that person has e serious spiritual problem. Lately I see a lot of people, who are victims of such a demon and the reason for that is their need to feed their ego – a need that is constantly there and is never satisfied.  The word tells us that people should spare their words unless they are praying. Amen! Jesus also warns us to beware of what we listen to, because the consequences of that could not be undone. Mark 4:24 „And he said to them, “Pay attention to what you hear: with the measure you use, it will be measured to you, and still more will be added to you.” Faith comes from listening to the word of God, and hate comes from listening to people full of sin. The advice apostle Paul gives Timothy is wise and a good model to follow.

2 Timothy 2:14 „Remind them of these things, and charge them before God not to quarrel about words, which does no good, but only ruins the hearers.”

The listeners should be fed the words of God and not humans. Don’t be slaves to humans and unsuccessful human ambitions. Amen!

1 Timothy 1:8 „Now we know that the law is good, if one uses it lawfully”

The word of God has its principles and rules, regulations and decrees, messages and laws, hierarchy and order. The word of God will work for us, when it is used in abidance of the law. The freedom that we have through our belief in Jesus Christ is not a form of disorder, outrage, independence. If someone wants to be independent, they cannot live as part of the body of Christ, whose head is Jesus himself. For me the independent Christians are misguided. They will read, learn and share knowledge, but it will never be covered with power from above. Why? It will not work for them, because the testament Lord made with us is to follow His son Jesus Christ.  Matthew 22:29 „But Jesus answered them, “You are wrong, because you know neither the Scriptures nor the power of God.” Knowing the scriptures means to follow them and applying them in your life. Jesus said, that exploring the scriptures lead people to Him. John 5:39 „You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me” Let us not be misguided. The scriptures will work for us only then, when we use them in abidance of the wall. Amen!

2 Timothy 2:5- An athlete is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules. It is the hard-working farmer who ought to have the first share of the crops. Think over what I say, for the Lord will give you understanding in everything.

Psalm 32:11 „Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous, and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!”, Psalm 33:1 „Shout for joy in the Lord, O you righteous! Praise befits the upright.”

The joy of salvation should bring great happiness in the heart of every righteous person. It cannot be compared neither to the priceless gifts, that we get from nature, nor with the pleasures of the flesh. The joy of salvation is the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives. It is an everlasting fire, which doesn’t burn out. When Moses saw this miracle – the burning bush – he went to see what it meant and was burning for the Lord to the end of his earthly pilgrimage. When the three holy men Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were thrown into the fire, their own heart, full of fire and love towards God, was greater than the fire in the furnace and God himself was with them, to bear testimony to that. When Jesus was crucified without having sinned and without guilt for our sins, he bared the death on the cross because of the joy, that was about to come after that.  Hebrews 12:2 „looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.” The joy of salvation is also the joy to see the saved people. Amen! To rejoice in the justice and with the righteous people. Радостта 2 John 1:12 „Though I have much to write to you, I would rather not use paper and ink. Instead I hope to come to you and talk face to face, so that our joy may be complete.” There is always great joy of worshiping God and thanking Him for everything He has done in our lives and for what He is about to do. Rejoice in the Lord, because the best wine is left last. Amen!

Hello, church, 13th of March 2014

Why does God perform miracles? How many of you have asked yourselves that question? If we don’t look deeper into the matter and answer from the top of our heads, we will say the truth – God is a God of wonders. Yes, He is. That is a proven fact. I believe it with all my heart and I preach it in all of my sermons. I share with people everything that I have seen Him do thought the years through me or in our healing sermons - supernatural miracles, which are impossible for people. But again I ask you this: why does God perform miracles? The worshiper sees things this way: Psalm 136:4. „to him who alone does great wonders,

    for his steadfast love endures forever” So we can say that God performs miracles, because steadfast love endures forever and not because someone has deserved it. Amen! Psalm 77:14 „You are the God who works wonders; you have made known your might among the peoples.” – He also performs miracles to make his might known to people. Not our power, but His. Amen! Acts 2:22 „Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man attested to you by God with mighty works and wonders and signs that God did through him in your midst, as you yourselves know„ God performs miracles through Jesus, in order to confirm that Jesus is the Son of God. God performs miracles, because that is His true nature. People cannot imagine that, because they are only human. They seek miracles mostly to fulfill their own needs and sometimes to get known to other people. Many of the “believers” even get into the occult, without realizing what they are doing. God doesn’t cease to perform miracles, because, I repeat, this is His nature. When God comes into your life, the most expected thing is for a miracle to happen. Repeat this with me: when God comes into your life, the most expected thing is for a miracle to happen. We are happy when miracles happen and share them, as we should, but is this so we glorify God or to make ourselves known and show others, that God is with us. Think about it, there is a big difference. We either want to glorify God, because He is the Lord, or we want to show people, that God is on our side and boost our prestige. The last is a big mistake. Let us read what king David says about God: 1 Chronicles 29:12 „Both riches and honor come from you, and you rule over all. In your hand are power and might, and in your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all.” Who does the king glorify – God and only God! God doesn’t share His glory with people.

Let me say something important. Dear souls of God, when you are ready to give a testimony from your life experience, do this with the only thought of giving the whole glory to God as Lord of your life, so that your testimony has power not only over the people, who hear it, but over the spiritual beings as well. Glorify God with your whole life. 1 Corinthians 6:20 „ for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.”

And we return to the question at hand: why does God perform miracles? So that the Lord is glorified! John 14:13. „Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.”

Glorify God with your life and give all the glory only to Him! Amen!

We love you church, and we bless you in the name of Jesus!

1 Peter 4:11 „Whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.”

The value system is losing its value by the day nowadays. People not only listen to everything, but to everybody even without knowing them in person. This is not only dangerous, but could also be very disappointing to them. The big mess we call daily information, that sometimes has something worthy to give us, but is a big mess and full of bad news most of the time, needs to be sorted in order for us to asses everything in our head before it becomes faith in our hearts. Amen! Many people today are stressed and the only reason for that is that they believe people and institutions even without knowing them and not long after they are disappointed and then they repeat the same mistake multiple times. Believe me, I have heard people say many times and with great ease things, that, as it turns out, they don’t really believe. They say one thing and not long after they do something else. That is why the Word tells us not to trust people, but to trust God. In order to separate the valuable from the insignificant it is best that your filter for information is the Word of God – the Bible. Nothing else! Bog says that even when someone is praying, they shouldn’t use unnecessary words: Matthew 6:7 „And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words.”

Here is an example of a hypocritical statement towards the apostle service of Paul: 2 Corinthians 10:10 „For they say, “His letters are weighty and strong, but his bodily presence is weak, and his speech of no account.” The demons are the same today; they don’t act any different than before. You can hear the same slander today and whether you believe it or not – that is by your own choice. What apostle Paul says is truthful:  1 Corinthians 2:4. „and my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power,” That is what really matters. Pay attention, my dear souls, to the essence of people you talk to and don’t believe everything you hear without confirmation from the Holy Spirit. Amen! This will protect you from further disappointments. And remember, that you shouldn’t follow people, but ordained servants of God. These are the foundations of faith and the first teachings of Christ, written in the Scriptures, not by me.

Hebrews 13:7 „Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith.”

May God of peace be with you today as well! Have a blessed day, church. With lots of love Pastor Vasil Petrov

Hello, church, 7th of March 2014 John 14:1 „Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me.”

Sometimes with not many words you can say many things. Jesus possessed the power of words and He spoke to His students: Your heart shouldn’t be troubled. The belief in God will change that. If the devil has am evil plan against you, you should know that he is not the only one – God has a plan for you as well. Greater is the one, who is within us, that the one, who is of the world. The spirit of the world differs from the spirit, which God has given us. 1 Corinthians 2:12 „Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God.” In order to receive God’s presents and for them to be a blessing for you, you shouldn’t look for them in this world. God’s promises are given for nothing through the Holy Spirit and only those, who consecrate themselves, find them. How many are they? 2 Corinthians 1:20 „ For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory.” Everything is possible for God. I often hear people fighting against God’s miraculous nature and I understand them – they have just never met Him. Except for religion and human piety, they know nothing. If you leave tradition, holidays, new moon and suchlike human fabrications and come to God with worship of the Holy Spirit with truth, only then will you meet the God of wonder. Jesus is a God of wonder! The Holy Spirit works miracles. Amen! May you have your miracle from God today!

Psalm 109:1-5 „Be not silent, O God of my praise! For wicked and deceitful mouths are opened against me, speaking against me with lying tongues. They encircle me with words of hate, and attack me without cause. In return for my love they accuse me, but I give myself to prayer. So they reward me evil for good, and hatred for my love.” Not always the good deeds you perform will be seen, understood and appreciated by people that are why Apostle Paul says to Galatians 1:10. „For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.” If you stride to indulge people at any cost just to make them happy, what will become of it will be downfall. Who know this better than Jesus and His apostles? David says: „In return for my love they accuse me”. Don’t be surprised if people, who you are fond of, start hating you for no reason, this has happened before. „So they reward me evil for good, and hatred for my love.” Those are not just words, but an everlasting truth and only those, who serve the Lord willingly, are still there. So let us abide God’s will and the Lord’s blessing will be with all of us. 1 Peter 2:15” For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people” Do good!

James 5:19-20 „My brothers, if anyone among you wanders from the truth and someone brings him back, let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.”

Someone might wander from the truth! Of whom is James speaking? Maybe of anyone but me. This is probably what our mind says, but are we safe from falling into error? Anyone on this Earth might. Anyone might wander from the truth, and this is how satan works. Well, what should we do with such people or what should people do with us, when we fall into error? One of the options is to ignore the confused person and make them out of your life forever and vice versa – when you have wandered from the truth instead of counting on someone to help you with God’s love, word and power, they ignore you.  Where is God in these situations? Even the small children in Bible school know that both options are not from the Bible. James says that option three is the best one. If someone brings the one, who has wondered from the truth! This is the right way, but in order to do that, you need a lot of courage, love, patience and maturity. Losing close friends and relatives is easy, but to win their heart over again is hard. Saving a human soul from misbelieve is like saving a person from drowning. Maybe you have met people, who say they are good swimmers, but often the ones, who show the most courage, are the ones, who find themselves sinking to the bottom. This is the moment when you give them a hand and grab them from the caws of death. If someone saves a person from spiritual death, they will cover a multitude of sins. Glory be to Jesus!

Save people from human and demonic misguidance.

1 Kings 18:6-9 „As they were coming home, when David returned from striking down the Philistine, the women came out of all the cities of Israel, singing and dancing, to meet King Saul, with tambourines, with songs of joy, and with musical instruments.  And the women sang to one another as they celebrated, “Saul has struck down his thousands, and David his ten thousands.”And Saul was very angry, and this saying displeased him. He said, “They have ascribed to David ten thousands, and to me they have ascribed thousands, and what more can he have but the kingdom?” And Saul eyed David from that day on.”

An evil spirit may attack you, if you let envy in your heart. Let me say it again: Envy in your heart may lead to demonic possession. In this story we see the king of Israel Saul, to do this mistake and God allowed for him to be possessed by an evil spirit. The expression “eyed David” (in Bulgarian – literally “looking with an evil eye”) in another translation from Greek would say “envious eye”. Another example we see in one of Jesus’ proverbs about the Kingdom of heaven. He reveals a picture about a vineyard owner, who hires people to work for him. He hires people in different times of day, but he still pays everybody the same. The ones, who have worked more than the others are envious of the ones who came later. Jesus says Matthew 20:15-16 „Am I not allowed doing what I choose with what belongs to me? Or do you begrudge my generosity?’ So the last will be first, and the first last.” Envy is a dangerous weapon in the hands of the devil. The true believer shouldn’t let that in his life nor follow people with the same problem. Why? Because he will be killed by the demons. When it develops, sin bares death. Envy has in itself betrayal. Mark 15:10 „For he perceived that it was out of envy that the chief priests had delivered him up.” Jesus was delivered because of the envy of the high priests. In his message James says that if we have envy, we should deal with this in time, and not be stubborn and harden our heart until we are dead. James 3:14. „But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth.” Demon of lies will work together with a demon of envy and discord. In the life of people who let that happen there is disorder. James 3:16, „For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice.” Apostle Paul says that the believers could remain of the flesh, if they don’t resist those demons. 1 Corinthians3:3. „for you are still of the flesh. For while there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not of the flesh and behaving only in a human way?” There are different priests and not everyone, who preaches Jesus, does it wholeheartedly. Philippians 1:15. „Some indeed preach Christ from envy and rivalry, but others from good will. „

In the story of Saul and David we see the same example of possession of an evil spirit. 1 Samuel 18:10;11 „The next day a harmful spirit from God rushed upon Saul, and he raved within his house while David was playing the lyre, as he did day by day. Saul had his spear in his hand. And Saul hurled the spear, for he thought, “I will pin David to the wall.” But David evaded him twice.” A good picture of what I mean. After eyeing David, the king was possessed by an evil spirit. David was praising the Lord just like any other time, but now he was eyed by Saul. Why? Was David different? No! Different was the way King Saul eyed David. That is a door people open for demons. You can tell they are possessed by the way they speak – they are rude, their behavior is offensive and provoking. Instead of love, there is growing envy in their hearts. You can probably see that after Saul was possessed by the evil spirit, he even started thinking of a way to kill David and threw his spear at him multiple times.  The evil envious spirit is also a spirit of murder. Believers start throwing their spiritual weapons at their own brothers and sisters, who they have recently loved and walked together with in the unity of Faith instead of learning how to destroy the work of satan.

Let me say this as well, the evil spirit is afraid of God’s people, who have pure hearts and have daily success. 1 Samuel 18:12. „Saul was afraid of David because the Lord was with him but had departed from Saul.” The king’s fear made him take the wrong decisions and only when David praised the Lord was he quiet. This spirit is tortured by the praises of saints. The victory over this spirit is praising the Lord with all your heart and all your strength and continues to do what you do every single day. Satan’s hits will miss you every single time. Amen!

Hello, church,

As you all may know, we are in the land of Israel and are truly having a wonderful time with God’s blessing. Jesus performed many miracles here at this place and we will share them with you as soon as we get back. Right now we are in Nazareth and it is truly wonderful being here. Yesterday around 60 people were baptized in the river of Jordan by me and pastor Konstantin. 3 people joined the Macedonian group and wanted to be baptized, because there was no one who could baptize them. Glory is to God! We pray for all of you on this holy place and have faith that God will heal and bless you. I have chosen a sermon today and want you to hear it too. Pray for all of us with love in your hearts. Greetings from the holy land of Israel. Pray for the peace and salvation of Israel today. Romans 10:1

Hello, church, 1 Corinthians 1:18 " For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” For people, who are saved through the death on the cross and Christ’s resurrection, the Word of God is truly powerful. It lives in their everyday lives, but is also a supernatural experience, waiting for the time when God’s Holy Spirit himself will raise them from the dead. Living God’s true love today in a world full of hate, hatred and injustice is God’s power, which keeps your precious life safe from the devil. Ephesians 1:19 " and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might." When we say God’s power, we mean the power of His mightiness. Hallelujah! This power of His is given and works for those, who believe from all their heart in the name of His only begotten son and follow Him by worshiping Him with Spirit and truth. For the people, who are dying by choosing to walk in their ways of delusion and disobedience towards the Word of God, It is meaningless. It loses its true meaning for them, because deluded and discarding the greatest sacrifice on the cross, they lose every chance to love and to be loved. May all those, who hear the blessed words of the word of God follow this living truth that will also guide them to eternal life. Amen! Today we are in Skopje, Macedonia, and are very happy to be able to meet our brother and sisters face to face here. They are going through a time of true exhilaration and God is blessing them daily. Tomorrow we will travel to the land of Israel with a large number of them. We have faith that God will grant us His blessings and we pray that we travel safely everywhere. Pray for the health and for everybody’s spiritual survival. There are over 50 people on the list to be baptized in the river of Jordan. We give all the glory to our God Jesus Christ. We love you, church, and we pray for each one of you. Have a wonderful day.

1 Corinthians 4:4-5, „For I am not aware of anything against myself, but I am not thereby acquitted. It is the Lord who judges me. Therefore do not pronounce judgment before the time, before the Lord comes, who will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness and will disclose the purposes of the heart. Then each one will receive his commendation from God”

Apostle Paul says, that it means little when someone judges him, because he doesn’t judge himself. Furthermore, he says that he is not aware of anything against himself, but still it is the Lord who will judge him. It is important for everyone to know, that God has the last say. Judging yourself or someone else is called pride. This way of satan is very old and even so too many people are easily caught in this web. I think that people cannot tell the difference between rebuke, teaching and judgment. This is the reason why they often fall into satan’s traps. When people can tell between rebuke and teaching, then they can keep themselves pure and free of sin and not fall into satan’s traps too often.  Today many people judge themselves without even understanding that. Why did God give the church those five gifts of service in His name – apostles, prophets, evangelists, shepherds and teachers? For a very good reason. Ephesians 4:13-14 „until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes.” The apostle says we shouldn’t judge before Christ comes and reveal the human hearts. We should also know clearly, that not anyone, who calls Jesus, has a pure heart and honest intentions. God knows the heart and will judge the hearts and intentions of people. Amen! Let everyone get their prize from Him!

God bless you fully dear brothers and sisters and don’t forget to give Him all the glory He deserves every new day.

Psalm 17:3 “Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; thou hast tried me, and shalt find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.”

Today when I read these words of the psalmist, they really showed me some great truths which I want to share with you.

Human nature always mistaken in the same thing, which in turn is destructive .The human is always right in his own eyes. Proverbs 16:2. “All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits.”
Self-confident person is a stupid person. He sees nothing and he is blind. This is what shows me this verse. It's not important what we think of ourselves , to the people ,for our work , let alone the others, and how God weighs our lives and what He sees in it. Especially at night when you lie down and be quiet when you stay in private with yourself and God, then He begins to test and verify your thoughts and intentions of the heart. Your spiritual person. It is good when you go to bed tonight and stand in God's holy peace and know that God finds nothing in you as an evil intent or thoughts of evil. Do you know when that happens ? Then when you think you do not exceed what you're told. Only then can sleep peacefully and to know that you stand in God's will for your life. When you praise in the Lord praise and trust Him completely. The Apostle Paul speaks in the spirit of their humility before God and says , Galatians 6:14 . “ But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.”

I believe my prayer for you today is that your world is crucified and you to the world. Then praise in your mouth will focus solely and entirely to Him. God's Son, Jesus Christ.

With much love for the Body of Christ Church pastor Vasil and Nassi Petrov.

John 15:7-8 „If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.” Jesus says, that if we remain in His word and His word remains in us, everything, that we ask for in prayer, shall be done for us. Amen! Have you ever asked yourselves why? How? If? If you let the Holy Spirit in your heart, He will show you that anyone, who remains in God’s word, is seeking the things that are above. What he is looking for most in the world is the Kingdom of God and His presence. Colossians 3:1. „If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.” People, who are filled with the Holy Spirit also carry the Word of God within. The always teeming Word of God is their steersman and inspiration of their soul. The prayer is aimed towards God’s glorious deeds and is for His glory. We can hear people like King David singing to the Lord in their hearts in many different ways, but everything they speak with their mouth is for His glory. Psalms 86:8-12 „There is none like you among the gods, O Lord, nor are there any works like yours. All the nations you have made shall come and worship before you, O Lord, and shall glorify your name. For you are great and do wondrous things; you alone are God. Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth; unite my heart to fear your name. I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify your name forever.” Jesus says that His Word will bring guidance and understanding of who God is in the life of those, who believe in Him. Not having doubt, that you will be granted whatever you pray for, is not only a question of motivation, but mostly faith in God. Faith comes from listening to the Word of God and from that thoughts on God’s will arise. We should never cease loving and obeying God, because that brings us closer to Him. Jesus says that our steadfastness in God will bear fruit that will only praise Him. Hebrews 13:15. „Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.” Let us praise Him today with all our heart and mind. Amen!

Galatians 6:3 „For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself.” The Bible tells us, that a man’s life on earth is like a breath. He is born, lives a certain amount of time and is gone. Psalm 144:4 „Man is like a breath; his days are like a passing shadow.” Is it important for people to know the truth? Apostle Paul says, that anyone can be misleaded, dependant and bound. He says that a person could be lying to himself in the moment he thinks he is something more than he is worth. I was nothing, but look at me now, I have become something more. That is what we call pride. When are we worth more – when people around us notice us? When are we more valuable to God? When we abide His will and perform righteous deeds. Are we going to count as something less in God’s eyes, if we don’t perform great deeds? Have you asked yourselves what happens to people, who we don’t notice? Where are they? If you don’t know the answer to that question, know that God feeds, protects, and loves them as much as he does you. If you didn’t just say “amen” instinctively, you must be full of pride. Jesus sees the people who we ignore or don’t see. That is why people will always be limited in knowledge and knowing of the Truth. That is why Jesus says, that we must look for the Truth and only those, who find it, will truly be free. It is possible to be misled by satan, isn’t it? Anyone, who thinks that isn’t possible, is already misled. Actually many great leaders and kings of the God’s nation Israel were misled by him, so whoever thinks they are smarter and sly than them - give it a try. The smarter and better thing to do is to depend fully on the grace of Christ and His protection over our life. He could teach us humbleness, because he showed us what that meant. Let us read what David said in one of the Psalms for the Lord: Psalm 51:1-19

„Have mercy on me,O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy

blot out my transgressions.  Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin! For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me. Against you, you only, have I sinned

and done what is evil in your sight, so that you may be justified in your words and blameless in your judgment. Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me. Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones that you have broken rejoice. Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit. Then I will teach transgressors your ways, and sinners will return to you.Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, O God of my salvation, and my tongue will sing aloud of your righteousness. O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise. For you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it; you will not be pleased with a burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise. Do good to Zion in your good pleasure; build up the walls of Jerusalem; then will you delight in right sacrifices, in burnt offerings and whole burnt offerings; then bulls will be offered on your altar.”

If you want Jesus to be your shelter from the storm, protector of your heart, filling you constantly with the Holy Spirit and joy, peace and unending love, be humble. James 4:6. „But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”

Psalm 40:4-5 “Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust, who does not turn to the proud, to those who go astray after a lie! You have multiplied, O Lord my God, your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us; none can compare with you! I will proclaim and tell of them, yet they are more than can be told”

There is bliss in the life of people, who have put all their trust in the Lord and always rely on and lean on Him. What does it mean to rely on the Lord? It means to never forget, that He is with you. No matter how spiritual people are nowadays, they come across difficulties, challenges and impossible situations in this world that they cannot solve by themselves. Most of the times many of them start trying to work out things without God and then, when things run completely out of control, they start to pray and seek spiritual guidance. This is not how things should work. The Word tells us 1 Peter 5:7: “casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.” What does this mean? Relying on God means to cast everything in His hand, to rely on His guidance and to follow Him constantly. When I say constantly there is always a red lamp that lights up and sounds something of an alarm. The Holy Spirit made me see, that this virtue is not often found in the human heart. It is as if we have turned our backs on many important details, defining our thinking and Christian behavior. It is not of any importance if you are only consistent for a year and then slip back into your old self. You can’t change your opinion day to day. This is not God’s guidance nor is it His way to bless people. In this verse we see what is good for people – to rely on the Lord. Afterwards the Word reads that is not good for a person to consent with arrogant people, who yield traitorously. What does it mean to yield? It means to take a step back. So there are people, who stand firm in the faith, but then there are those, who will give ground and abandon their promises and faith even because someone else has a different opinion. Who can change a man’s opinion all the time – the devil! Why - because he is always looking for a crack to get in and spread his lies. This is the normal way he does things. One step left, one step right and two steps back. If you couldn’t remember it, let me say it again. Just don’t make a dance out of it. Just joking, ha ha! Our God speaks clearly:  Proverbs 4:27 “Do not swerve to the right or to the left; turn your foot away from evil.” The word always tells us, that we should be in steadfastness in what we say, do or promise. Even when it is hard and uneasy for us, we cannot give up easily and change everything any time we see, that we are not coping. As God is standing, so am I. Jesus never came around the mountain. It moves when it sees the Lord. Philippians 4:6 “do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” The more grateful people there are, the more bliss there will be. Amen! Be truly grateful for everything to our Lord Jesus, He is our shield, protection, shelter from the storm. Have true faith in the Lord.

Ephesians 4:20-24 “But that is not the way you learned Christ!— assuming that you have heard about him and were taught in him, as the truth is in Jesus, to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.” People nowadays insist that they know Jesus, and if that were true, then they must be leading very successful lives. John 17:3 “And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” Everyone, who has met Jesus, has God’s love and walks in the path of Truth every day. The Truth is not something we know by words, but something that shows in our actions. Apostle Paul speaks the Truth according to his conscience and the Holy Spirit. His brave confession reads: Romans 9:1”I am speaking the truth in Christ—I am not lying; my conscience bears me witness in the Holy Spirit” Light is shed unto every single Truth and it only bears fruit in Jesus. Our humanly wisdom is like a ring-road to God, figuratively speaking. Human thoughts, wisdom, knowledge is no greater than God. That is the reason why the apostle encourages the church to take off the clothes of sin, meaning the former manner that is the old self. He says that we should seek a change in the personality by letting God renew our mind with the help of the Holy spirit, so we could no longer live our own lives, but to be completely changed in the image of Jesus and to be a good example of righteousness, holiness and truth. Amen! 2 Corinthians 1:12 “or our boast is this, the testimony of our conscience, that we behaved in the world with simplicity and godly sincerity, not by earthly wisdom but by the grace of God, and supremely so toward you.” God’s grace is something other than human wisdom. It says: “I cannot get over smoking or alcohol or other bad habits, but I still speak the truth.” The human nature is always going to be consumed (in Bulgarian – slow burning of fire that is still not shouldered) by deceitful desires. Lukewarm is the worst process in any person’s life. What it means, is that you are always ready to start burning for the wrong things, for the bad habits. It also means that you are still not free and ready to walk in blessing and truth. God loathes those kinds of people, let me show you that in Revelation 3:15-16 “I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.” Lately we see people speaking of Christ, giving different opinions, which is not so bad, but when our deeds speak of something different and clearly show our old nature, we are no longer useful to ourselves or to anyone else. Good deeds have nothing to do with sin. So if you are still in sin and a slave of bad habits, hurry and deal with those things before the new day comes. Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today and don’t allow the devil to use you for temptation of those, who could turn and look for Jesus with an honest heart.

With lots of love

Luke 22:31-32 “Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat, but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.”

 Jesus says to Peter, that satan wants the right, he demands, requires that they are all sifted like wheat. He cannot set them apart from Christ, but he wants the right, demands selection, and if someone accidentally falls into his trap, then so be it. In Jesus’ days, gathering the wheat was a time demanding and hard job. First, the reapers gathered the wheat ears from the field. Then they hit them against a hard surface or threshed them on a threshing-board, dragged by cattle, and so the wheat ears were broken into pieces. During that process the grains were separated from the wheat ears and their covers. Afterwards the fanner threw the grains and the chaff in the air. The grains were falling on the threshing-floor, while the wind was blowing the chaff away. In the end the grains were carefully sifted out, so that all the chaff was removed. Nowadays many people think that once saved or once they’ve believed in Christ, they are out of the wood and that God will protect them thought all of their days, no matter what they do. This is not even remotely the truth. The apostles were in the living presence and under the direct leadership, guidance from Jesus Christ himself, the Son of the living God, let us never forget that. Even then satan never ceased to look for opportunities to take them from God’s hand. We would like to see how in the next verse Jesus scolds satan and drives him away forever, to hear Him say: “Don’t touch my disciples, satan, you have no power over them”. But that is not exactly what Jesus said. Instead, He turns to Peter, what also means to the church nowadays, and says: „but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.” - a good example and a lesson for all of us. Jesus says, that satan will try to take us from His hand even today, but he will not succeed, if we pray and hold on to each other. May we see the kingdom of darkness shaken to its foundations by the prayers of people, who truly love each other! Amen! James 5:16 “Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.”There is great power in the confession of sin, prayer for one another – with that come the miracles. Halleluiah! We should pray for each other, that our faith doesn’t fail, this is very important. Since our own faith has grown, the next challenge comes and it is to strengthen the position of our brothers and sisters with the Lord’s word. Amen! There is power in the faithful prayers, when they are sent to God with steadfastness and love for one another. God gave you a new victorious week, filled with testimony of who Jesus is in your life.

1 John 2:2 “He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.”

When you read that verse you go back to that purity and truth that no man on Earth could change or corrupt - the truth about the Jesus’ cross, death and resurrection. Do you believe that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved? Romans 10:13 “For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Oh, yes, many people have their own opinion about this salvation, but isn’t God the only one with the right to speak through His word and through the blood of His only son Jesus Christ? Let me tell you this as well, speaking along the lines of saving human souls. This is not just salvation, this is God’s love. 1 John 4:10. “In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” We are not even worthy to say that we came to God and have a claim on anything. The limitless love of God makes hold of us exactly then, when the need of our heart is calling to Him, the one true Ruler, Lord and King of eternity. God summoned us and made us a new creation in His name. Taking our stone heart, He made it soft in His hand and susceptible to change and today we are new born and full of faith, God’s love towards everybody and not according to our merits. Amen! God says in the prophesy of Ezekiel 36:26: “And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.” Do you ever meet people with a soft loving heart filled with God’s love? If so, those are the ones, who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, geuine and not double-tounged inhabitants of the heavenly kingdom, the ones you are going to spend eternity with. Amen! They are everywhere!

Proverbs 14:4 “Where there are no oxen, the manger is clean, but abundant crops come by the strength of the ox.”

Have you ever come across the saying “I work like a horse” (in Bulgarian: “I work like an ox from dusk till dawn”)?

This is meant about people, right? The wisdom and truth here is inspiring and encouraging and I am sure this will be a blessing for you today, church. What came to my mind first when I read that saying was what you are probably thinking of right now. The oxen live in a dirty barn and they smell bad. When they are in the barn, you need to serve them more than they actually serve you. But when they come out in the field, they have a far greater power than yours and this is for your blessing.  People today worry that they will do something wrong far too often, they are scared that they will be criticized, and when they make a mistake they are really stressed, because they think someone will correct or expose them. This revokes a protective response in people and they say “I’m not guilty, I didn’t do anything wrong”. Denying your mistake or your sin doesn’t make everything around you neater or your conscience and soul cleaner. It’s more important not to bury what is in your heart, but to let the Lord clean up your mess. You will be of use to God in this world only if you are strong, and even strong people have weaknesses.  Satan knows this and he will use every opportunity to defeat you. The strength of the oxen is in the great abundance they bring by working for us. It’s better to be strong like an ox, even if you make mistakes from time to time, than everything around you to seem perfectly clean and neat, and yet to be no use for what you do.  Amen! 1 Corinthians 15:58 “Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.” Don’t be afraid of doing something wrong, because the person, who doesn’t make any mistakes, is the one who doesn’t do any work either. We learn from our mistakes, so we don’t sin anymore. Work as hard as if you are working for the Lord and give thanks in your hearts, because God is the one, who will cleanse our hearts through the blood of Jesus Christ. Amen!

Luke 22:44-46 “And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground. And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow, And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.”

Let me tell you something that the Holy Spirit revealed to me today. God made me see that many times, when people are being tempted, are sick or fall in despair, they lose heart and start looking for someone to get them back on their feet. At first that looks completely normal, but we have the example of Christ for something far greater, which you can have in your life today. When Jesus was in agony even before He was betrayed, He was praying, because He knew what was going to happen. Jesus believed in the power of prayer and that it could help Him more than anything else in tough times. People, who don’t believe in the power of prayer, don’t do this. They start looking for the way out immediately or seek the fast and easy way out at any cost. Jesus knew that this was the way out. Let me say it clearly and if you can, you can take this and make it your blessing today. Prayer is the way out for every Christian from any situation. Amen! Take notice, that when Jesus stopped praying, He went to those, who were with Him in the flesh and were supposed to support Him at least in prayer. Jesus found them sleeping, because they were full of sadness. Pain, hardship, disappointment, powerlessness are hard to bear on all of us, but we must pull ourselves together and stand tall every time, when they start crushing us. There is a confession, 1 Peter 5:7 which helps a lot in these kinds of situations and I would like you to say it out loud with faith in God: “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” Profess these words, when you feel powerless and tired in a completely hopeless situation and you will feel your burden being lifted. Now you can turn to Christ and thank Him that He is taking care of you. Anticipate everything around you to change for the best in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!

Have a blessed day, church, we love you!

3 John 1:1-6  “The elder unto the wellbeloved Gaius, whom I love in the truth. Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth. I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. Beloved, thou doest faithfully whatsoever thou doest to the brethren, and to strangers; Which have borne witness of thy charity before the church: whom if thou bring forward on their journey after a godly sort, thou shalt do well”

So I join the prayer of the elder and I pray that you have a successful day and that you are healthy dear brothers and sisters, just as your soul meets prosper. It is great joy and happiness for a servant of God, when he sees His spiritual children walking in the Truth with faithfulness in God. There is no greater joy than seeing everyone walking in the Truth. What is the Truth? First of all, there is just one Truth. The Truth has no additions, causes и additives. It is one for all. The Truth is Jesus Christ. John 14:6 “Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” The truth is love. Today many people have their truths, which they believe and follow, but this is only what considers today. Tomorrow their priorities will change in the direction the wind blows. This is not God’s truth, established on Earth for all followers of Christ. There is only one Truth and it is peaceful, loving, setting people free. John 8:32 “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” The Truth doesn’t come from long seminars, reading the Bible or long prayers. To know the power of the truth that sets you free, to have it and keep it deep in your heart, you need to know Christ, who is the source of everlasting life, the one, who brings true blessing in your heart, peace, joy, righteous. That power is like a river that goes through your life and cleans you from the dirt and filth that are thrown at you every day. Revelation 22:1-2 “And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manners of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.” There are many factors that make you dirty, church, but God has a cleansing power and its name is the Holy Spirit. The river of the Holy Spirit refreshes you every day. Psalm 23:3 “He restored my soul: he leaded me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.”Amen!

We visited some wonderful places this week, church, and I preached the Word of God in the Brestovitsa village, Plovdiv region and the Belasitsa village, Petritch region. We were in Brestovitsa this Wednesday, the 15th of January, 2014, where I preached the Word of God to more than 130 people. Many people were touched by God’s holiness and were released by the Holy Spirit. The pastor of the Church was provoked by God to search for Him in a new and dynamic way in his ministry. Many people’s spirits, souls and physical bodies were cured. The love of the brothers and sisters there wasn’t letting us leave and we truly had some wonderful moments. May God continue to use those people for His kingdom and lead them in the path of His righteousness. Afterwards we travelled to the Belasitsa village, where we spent two days. I preached in the church in the Rupi village and God baptized new people in the Holy Spirit. God’s love spread in that place and in all the hearts of those people and there was great joy. Many people testified that they even physically felt God’s presence like never before. People were released from demons, diseases, and we believed that we will see supernatural miracles. And so we did see them – a woman, that was healed by God from intestinal cancer testified, that for a few days after the prayer she no longer was in pain when she ate. After the doctors agreed, she cannot possibly live long because of the cancer; God healed her and removed all the metastases from her body. The only thing left was the pain when she was eating, because most of her intestines were removed.  We believe today, that a miracle will happen and she will be completely cured. We prayed for a woman that took part in the lies and false prophecies of a woman, known as the Petritch oracle Vanga. Today she is possessed by the same demons, which often leads to her being treated in the psychiatry. After I led her in prayer to repent and disavow satan’s deeds, she started to confess to sins, that she did from not knowing the truth. She truly repented for her sins and is now in the kingdom of God and in His light. She is saved. A man was saved from a demon of alcohol and visibly fully changed in the name of Jesus. We give all the glory to God and thank Him that he made us part of that great act. Together with Sister Sonya we made an important tour in the Petritch area and we prayed and prophesized against the idols, ашери and demonic influences. We started from tsar Samuil’s fortress, which is close to the Belasitsa village. What we saw there: it is a historical fact, that tsar Samuil dies on the 6th of October 1014, probably from heart attack after seeing his soldiers, who were blinded after the battle near Belasitsa. The demon of blindness and death doesn’t leave that territory though, and is still there even in the year of 1923, when Vanga’s father moves to his village of birth Novo selo. It is there, where Vanga loses her sight in a sudden storm, when she is lifted up by a powerful wind. After a long search she is later found in a field, covered by rocks and dirt. Many people even today believe that what happened to this woman was from God, so she could help people. What I believe is that this demon of blindness, death and lies still manages to take whole generations of Bulgarians, Macedonians and Russians captive in a new tragic chain of damnation even today. What we saw at the place of worship is that many young people go there every day to offer their sacrifice to demons without even realizing it. We managed to talk to some of them and they were truly surprised to hear, that Jesus is the living God and Vanga is not His prophet. We tied the demon of occultism and slavery, demon of blindness and death for the Bulgarian people, who were lied to for so long and we expect a change for the better in the spiritual world.  Sonya’s wonderful family hosted this trip and I can testify with the same words that I started my message today; sister, you are doing a good and faithful job for God and we testify of your love to the church.

Mark 8:34-35 “Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 35 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it.”

If you want to follow Jesus that cannot happen if you are selfish you’re your ego is above all. Your great big “me” will always set you back not even in first grade, but in God’s kindergarten. That is why Jesus says it clearly to those, who want to follow Him that they need to first renounce who they are. What does this mean? First one must be baptized in water by an ordained servant of God for the purpose of penance and God of peace must fill his heart with His Holy spirit. Amen! Then the follower must start to crucify his sinful nature, start to obey the Word of God and put on the new self that is created according to God’s likeness. Ephesians 4:24 “and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.” Selfishness leads to egoism and this is definitely revolting. Take a look at the next words of the Teacher – “Whoever finds their life will lose it”. This is the way to renounce one’s self according to Jesus. You don’t try to catch up the people of the world and to fit in their corrupted picture, but quite the opposite – to be an example of the new life that you live for God’s glory. But what does it mean to lose one’s life on this Earth? That most certainly does not mean to die physically, but to be dead to sin. Amen! Galatians 5:24 “Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.” We all know exactly what this means. Today many “Christians” are still fighting sinful things like cigarettes, alcohol, watching television, listening to worldly music, selfishness, influence in society, arrogance, fornication, nattering tongue and so on, but still truly believe, that they are of Christ. This is most definitely not so. No one should be deceived that sin and disobedience will get them in the kingdom of God. God wants to see us fully changed.

Influence in society will make you worldly and fruitless and you will speak like any other person of the world and do their deeds. Being of Christ is something different – it means to rejoice with the ones that are getting saved, being healed and breaking free for God’s glory.

Romans 6:13 “Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death.”

Hello Church, 14th August, 2013

“For indeed we who are in this tent do groan, being burdened; not that we desire to be unclothed, but that we desire to be clothed, that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. Now he who made us for this very thing is God, who also gave to us the down payment of the Spirit.” 2 Corinthians 5:4; 5

When Apostle Paul speaks about tent do groan, he means our fleshy nature; our body. Today, we call this body earthly home, place, where our precious soul lives. We all know that the body is temporary, and the spirit eternal. Following these thoughts we must be stupid to say that there is no eternal life. Many people refuse to believe to this chance, that they can live forever, not because they don’t want it, but because they are afraid to admit that they are sinners, weak and burdened. When these factors brake in the human nature, we fall on our knees and whisper in our unspeakable groan to God “forgive me”. Even the biggest atheists in the world know that there is God, but they deny this chance, truly hoping to find another explainable reason for our existence. The famous philosophy professor Antony Flew, scientist, currently over 80 years old, is one of the pillars of the scientific atheism for years now. But, some of his last scientific discoveries made the great protector of the secularism to change his mind. Flew stated publically that he is wrong and the Universe can’t be created by itself, she’s obviously created by someone much more powerful that we can ever imagine. By his words, soon enough other atheists were convinced that the first living matter came from dead matter. According to him however the last data for the structure of the molecule of the DNA are irrefutable evidence for that she can’t arise out of itself, but it presents someone’s work. The genetic code and the encyclopedic volumes of information, which are contained in the molecule, negate the possibility of blind coincidence. What, blind coincidence? Anything else that can be said about God can be accepted as stupidity, but to think that God worked blindly and He created the human nature just by chance, this borders with the theory of stupidity. Let me take you back to the thoughts of one ancient writer, specifically, Apostle Paul. He says that we don’t wish to get undressed, but to dress up even more, so can the mortal be swallowed by life. While we are alive and groan in this body, the Apostle says that each day we are longing to be filled with the Word of the Lord, which enlightens us with the strength of the Holy Spirit, which swallows the death and gives us abundant life. “Most certainly I tell you, he who hears my word, and believes him who sent me, has eternal life, and doesn’t come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.” John 5:24. I personally like the definition “what is mortal may be swallowed up by life”. The first picture of comparison with something on this earth that came into my mind is sugar cube, which dissolves in a cup of water. In the same way the mortal is swallowed by life. It just disappears. The way, the truth and the life is Jesus Christ himself. And to be even more specific in our statement for eternal life, we can repeat the words of Jesus, and they say: “This is eternal life, that they should know you, the only true God, and him whom you sent, Jesus Christ.” John 17:3. Isn’t that strong argument enough to believe completely in the wish of God to free us from the power of fear, death and punishment? God gave us His Holy Spirit in pledge of His love and His true irreversible intentions for eternal life. That’s the God’s sign, placed on a new blank called by everyone New Testament, and that is His wish, confirmed with words, written not on stone, but carved with the nib of the Spirit in the heart of all who summon the Son Jesus Christ as their Lord. “being revealed that you are a letter of Christ, served by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tablets of stone, but in tablets that are hearts of flesh.” 2 Corinthians 3:3. Today, we must dress up with power from above. To dress up with new clothes of holiness that God gives us. “The night is far gone, and the day is near. Let’s therefore throw off the deeds of darkness, and let’s put on the armor of light.” Romans 13:13. For us that’s life full of peace, love, righteousness and blessing. That’s weapon of the Heavenly kingdom, and we can have it today in this body. “But let us, since we belong to the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and, for a helmet, the hope of salvation.” 1 Thessalonians 5:8. Let’s stay obedient to the heavenly vision and our heart to sympathize with all who are away from life, aka Jesus. Let’s work constantly to bring to message of life to all of them, so even the people that are atheists to have chance for salvation in Christ’s arms. And the other thing is easy! Let me tell you what will happen, according the words of Apostle Paul: “As we have borne the image of those made of dust, let’s also bear the image of the heavenly.” 1 Corinthians 15:49. For all, let the God’s Word become Yes and Amen!

I love you church! Pastor Vasil Petrov


Hello Church, 13th August, 2013

Romans 12:3: “For I say, through the grace that was given me, to every man who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think reasonably, as God has apportioned to each person a measure of faith.” 

Before saying these words, Apostle Paul speaks about the way of ministry, which each Christian, that seeks growth in faith and perfection in good deeds, must have. He says that on first place, because of the God’s mercies, we must present our bodies in living, holy sacrifice, pleasing to God, like personal spiritual ministry. We know well that God doesn’t need ministry of human hands; it is like saying that He has a need for something. “neither is he served by men’s hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he himself gives to all life and breath, and all things.” Acts 17:25. Then I’m asking myself: Why God needs to stand us and why the whole headache to deal with us while He builds us spiritually, while we suffer development and full change of our spiritual personality? Can’t He just take one donkey that will do the same work without crying all the time and ask many questions? In the strive of perfection in God, and to become better, the people periodically develop in themselves, without even thinking about it, spirit of rivalry, contest, performance, demonstration and competition. Very often those, who are not feeling valued enough, start to look for this recognition, approval, while judging to their own deeds. The Word says to us that every good; Say it with me: “EVERY GOOD” comes from the Father of the skies, in Whom there is no change. Have you noticed from who is good coming? From the Father! There is no person on earth, who can take on himself glory, without God noticing it. Jesus says to the gathered Jews that wanted to kill Him: “How can you believe, who receive glory from one another, and you don’t seek the glory that comes from the only God?” John 5:44. That’s it! That’s the key of the question. That’s the truth for the falling of people and servants today. The devil is lying to them, telling them that they are something, and they start to raise themselves in their own eyes to accept glory with enviable confidence, without seeing the trap or the net, which Satan has thrown to capture them and kill them. How can a person believe to God for great deeds, when he accepts glory from people? That’s the question of Jesus. If the people themselves value their deeds in front of God, where will be the measure of approval from God? Because I know that whatever the people say about you and me and the things that God says, doesn’t always have same standard and you can easily be deceived by Satan, misled and confused, if you trust a human opinion. Jesus stated publicly without any kind of hesitation: “I don’t receive glory from men.” John 5:41. Why is Jesus saying that? Because He wanted to focus the attention of all on Father! The deeds I’m doing, I’m not doing from myself, but the One who sends me does His will in me. That’s what you’ll find in many statements of His. Jesus was seeing the imperfection of the flesh to do God’s will, that’s why He said that a person can’t do anything, but hoping to God and believing in His promises, everything is possible. “Looking at them, Jesus said, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26. I’ll go back again to this verse in Romans 12:3 to say to you what I see in it. The words of Apostle Paul: “not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think;” are important thing, which I want you to see as servants or future servants. When person starts to serve according his gift, which is given by God through the Holy Spirit and the capabilities become many because of the many promises of God, we must not forget this: Who is the one that does these great deeds, and to who belongs the whole glory? The ability of people to accept glory is by the fact that they become visible. Simply said, people start to notice him/them. That’s the weak spot of every person, which Satan will want to use to destroy in seed all what God already has given to him. While you are not being noticed, everything seems to be fine, but when you become noticed, the temptations become many. There is no person on earth, I think, except Jesus that can resist by himself to all that. That’s why we know that without Him in our life, we are lost. No matter what we achieve, how much we do, it won’t have any sense if the whole glory isn’t left for God. Not just saying that, but we must show it with our life. The Apostles were very scared after they raised a person, at Lystra, on foot through the Holy Spirit a crippled man that had never the chance to walk before. The people decided that they were gods and immediately gave them such names. They renamed Barnabas to Jupiter, and Paul to Mercury, because he was the main speaker. If these Apostles weren’t cleansed by their ego before that, now they could’ve accepted the glory that was coming from the crowd. Paul should’ve said: Oh, yes! That is moment of triumph which I’ve been waiting in my life. I must enjoy it! Isn’t that a great experience! Just a little more and then I’ll tell them that God made all of this through his servant Jesus. No, no and no again! The first words of the apostles were: “Men, why are you doing these things? We also are men of like passions with you, and bring you good news, that you should turn from these vain things to the living God, who made the sky, the earth, the sea, and all that is in them;” Acts 14:15. Yes, exactly like that! They didn’t want human glory in their life, and that was the reason for God to use them to do more miracles in them and to listen to their prayer. When you become noticeable and meaningful for the people, which will happen with every single one that God uses for His glory, don’t forget, brother and sister, the glory belongs to God. Jesus was tempted in this way by Satan in the wilderness, but when He resisted to everything, the Word says to us that the devil stepped aside from His life. “The devil said to him, “I will give you all this authority, and their glory, for it has been delivered to me; and I give it to whomever I want. If you therefore will worship before me, it will all be yours.” Jesus answered him, “Get behind me Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and you shall serve him only.’” Luke 4:6; 8. Serve to God with your whole heart and give to Him the whole glory for everything that happens in it and God will bless you. You’ll see bigger miracles than ever and God won’t need to test or humble you one way or another, but He will pour in you His anointing, because you are pleasing to Him. God never makes in our life things which will destroy or kill us, and that is why He will seek pure and holy hearts, giving to Him the whole glory. Amen! The prayer we read in Matthew 6:13, which is our example, says to us: “Bring us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For yours is the Kingdom, the power, and the glory forever. Amen.’” That is daily confession of His glory for everything in our life. Pray with this prayer. “He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory, but he who seeks the glory of him who sent him is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.” John 7:18.
God bless you abundantly dear brothers and sisters and the whole glory for your life will be for Him. Amen!

Isaiah 63:7: “I will tell of the loving kindnesses of Yahweh and the praises of Yahweh, according to all that Yahweh has given to us, and the great goodness toward the house of Israel, which he has given to them according to his mercies, and according to the multitude of his loving kindnesses.”

Prophet Isaiah reminds us the loving kindness of God. Isn’t that a reason to praise Him, when we remember all the mercies that He made in our life, for His grace, mercy and generosity to this world? God never changes and that is this strong argument, which keeps and holds our faith. Amen! “But of the Son he says, “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever. The scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your Kingdom. You have loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows.” And, “You, Lord, in the beginning, laid the foundation of the earth. The heavens are the works of your hands. They will perish, but you continue. They all will grow old like a garment does. You will roll them up like a mantle, and they will be changed; but you are the same. Your years will not fail.” Hebrews 1:8; 12. That’s what we learn today for God, according to the Son and His word He’ll never change with years. The movement of the Holy Spirit can be in much different and various way, but God stays what He already said He is. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” Hebrews 13:8. The writings are showing the generosity of God throughout the centuries, and His giving nature, showing to the generations His constant grace to everyone. “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom can be no variation, nor turning shadow.” James 1:17. If we look at the scriptures of James, we meet again this picture of God, Who thinks for good, gift and this nature of His seems to be never changing. In two words, all the scriptures are inspired by God and useful for example, guiding, rebukes and teaching, and all of those inspired to write with the feather of the Spirit are saying the same thing. That is one undeniable guide and proof for the singularity of God in front of the eyes of the old prophets and the Apostles of the New Testament. For example in the message of Peter it’s spoken for the giving Jesus. Because, when He appears again, His Divine nature won’t be changed. Isn’t it good to know that everything you see and learn today in the writings for God, one day you’ll see it in reality? I’m very inspired about that God is truly good and I try to get use to it and remember His nature. Today, the arrogance, the greed and the selfishness brought the people to desperation, because they see the burden of life without God on this earth. One day, all of that will completely change when we gather with Jesus. “Therefore prepare your minds for action, be sober, and set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ” 1 Peter 1:13. Our life must grow in knowledge of God, in every generosity that comes from our heart. That’s a good indication of spirituality and devotion. Apostle Paul says to the church in Corinth: “It is indeed unnecessary for me to write to you concerning the service to the saints” 2 Corinthians 9:1. Why it is unnecessary? Because they are already taught by God and they have already shown their generosity from their whole heart! To give help for the saints is not just the next lesson that you have to learn. That’s this generosity in the newborn spiritual heart that blooms in us directly from God. “Remember this: he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly. He who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.” 2 Corinthians 9:6. That’s a spiritual principle, which all of us can see live in the nature that is undoubtedly God’s creation. When a field is sown with wheat, around thousand acres, it’s supposed for the rich harvest to feed the population. But, if you made that in a small private property, you can’t actually expect to see the same results. At what level today we see the good that we do. At what level we’ll be rising our head to see what God wants us to see. “Don’t you say, ‘There are yet four months until the harvest?’ Behold, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and look at the fields, that they are white for harvest already. He who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit to eternal life; that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together.” John 4:35; 36. Giving is our service in front of God and we must watch it with responsibility in blessed by God way. Because when you make that, not only you fill the needs of the saints, but all the givings which come out from this great deed are poured in front of God, and that definitely touches His heart. “For this service of giving that you perform not only makes up for lack among the saints, but abounds also through many givings of thanks to God;” 2 Corinthians 9:12. Participate in the Christ’s Good News for salvation of human souls according your giving, and be thankful for that Jesus Himself called you and made you participants in the heavenly plan for the salvation of this world. Rise up your heads and see the fields!

James 1:13; 18: “Let no man say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God,” for God can’t be tempted by evil, and he himself tempts no one. But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own lust, and enticed. Then the lust, when it has conceived, bears sin; and the sin, when it is full grown, produces death. Don’t be deceived, my beloved brothers. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom can be no variation, nor turning shadow. Of his own will he gave birth to us by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures.”

You know that there are people who think that everything happening in their life is by God. Even in moments when they sin by their will and come in deceptions, troubles or temptations, they again look for excuse in God. However, in James’s message it’s said something completely different. None shall do that! When he’s being tempted by the devil, he must not say that God made that in his life, because it’s not true and such type of attitude will seduce many people who don’t know the scriptures. They would think that God is capable to give us so easy in the hands of the devil, and he can play with us in all ways. Nope, that’s not true. Jesus was taken by the Holy Spirit in the desert to be tempted by the devil forty days, and resisting everything, He won: “When the devil had completed every temptation, he departed from him until another time.” Luke 4:13. You know that in the Bible nothing happens just like that, randomly. This example is given to us, because that was supposed to happen with Jesus, so He can destroy completely the power and the deeds of the devil. Jesus had to demonstrate the power of heavens here on earth and the power of the God’s kingdom. “Since then the children have shared in flesh and blood, he also himself in the same way partook of the same, that through death he might bring to nothing him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and might deliver all of them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. For most certainly, he doesn’t give help to angels, but he gives help to the offspring of Abraham. Therefore he was obligated in all things to be made like his brothers, that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make atonement for the sins of the people. For in that he himself has suffered being tempted, he is able to help those who are tempted.” Hebrews 2:14; 18. Jesus Himself was tempted by the devil so He can help to everyone, who are being temped in their fight against Satan. When we read the prayer in Matthew chapter 6, we will notice in 13th verse to be written the exactly same thing: “Bring us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For yours is the Kingdom, the power, and the glory forever. Amen.’” Matthew 6:13. The prayer to God is not to let the devil come to our life to tempt us, and that is the correct way of turning to God, according to Jesus. The temptation is sin and it brings to death. The one who gets tempted, gets sucked and deceived by his own passion, and then the passion births sin, and the sin, when it’s developed completely, births death! These are the deeds of the flesh and the work of Satan against us, so he can destroy us. The word teaches us: “Watch and pray, that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Mark 14:38. When we are watchful and in all perseverance we pray in the Holy Spirit, God will protect us from stumbling and the traps of Satan will stay empty when we pass through there. “with all prayer and requests, praying at all times in the Spirit, and being watchful to this end in all perseverance and requests for all the saints:” Ephesians 6:18. When Jesus went to pray on the Mount of Olives, after Him, some of His students came as well. Before I continue with that I want to ask you: When you are with Jesus, can you be tempted? I suppose that you have the correct answer. Jesus Himself found a couple of times His students to sleep and woke them up to tell them to be watchful in the Spirit, so they may not enter into temptation. “When he rose up from his prayer, he came to the disciples, and found them sleeping because of grief, and said to them, “Why do you sleep? Rise and pray that you may not enter into temptation.” Luke 22:45; 46. After that they were really hit by Satan and most of them scattered when Jesus got arrested. It’s important to know that not only for ourselves, but for the future too, when we must help to people, that are being tempted by the devil in their inexperience, to resist. Apostle Paul gives priceless lesson to the Galatians about this: “Brothers, even if a man is caught in some fault, you who are spiritual must restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness; looking to yourself so that you also aren’t tempted.” Galatians 6:1. Sin comes after a temptation from the devil. The only one tempted on this earth and left without a sin is Jesus Christ. “For we don’t have a high priest who can’t be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but one who has been in all points tempted like we are, yet without sin.” Hebrews 4:15. God never tempts us to guide us to sin. God gives good things to those looking for Him. “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom can be no variation, nor turning shadow.” God never changes, He loves us and He will make everything for us to deliver us from the paws of the impure. God is on our side. Be watchful and sober. Amen!

Luke 24:32: “They said to one another, “Weren’t our hearts burning within us, while he spoke to us along the way, and while he opened the Scriptures to us?”

Two students of Jesus walked in a way with clear target. The village of Emmaus, to which they were going, is around 10kilometers far from Jerusalem. The two students were in their darkest mood. The reason was the death of their favourite teacher. The Greek word says that they had debates for Jesus, but they were so deep in their sadness that they didn’t recognize Him when He joined them. Cleopas and his friend were very disappointed and sad, and the reason for that was that the Man they trusted the most was executed. Their hope was a dead one. Everything was ruined, no exit, they were followers of one doomed teaching. What horror! But why this picture doesn’t seem that old to me? Why I think that I see that every day? The believers that spend their life like that today aren’t a few, like dark and sad Christians, Christians which with their life demonstrate that their God is dead and everything is ruined, nothing to do, everything dies. But, if you know such Christians, please, don’t believe their message! The dark Christian is the worse preach for God’s character. Such a believer presents one dead God, or if it’s alive, the God is very cruel. Martin Luther tells that once he was deeply disappointed in himself, by the church, by the world and by the little success that he thought he has. Like that, he fells in desperation, which darkened the happiness in his whole home. His good wife wasn’t able to cheer him up with her words. Finally she had an idea that turned out to be very resourceful. She came up in front of him dressed in clothes for funeral. “Who died?” – wondered Luther. “Martin, you don’t know? God of the heavens died.”, “How can you speak such stupid things, Katharina? How can God die? He’s immortal and lives forever.”, “Is that true? Is He truly alive?” She kept playing her role, acting like she hears that for first time. “How can you doubt? The way I believe that there is God in the heavens, I believe that He’s alive” – stated the great reformer. “And after all, even when you don’t doubt in the existence of God, you seem so sad and desperate like there is no God at all? I don’t understand you. Don’t you think that you seem like God died?” The curtain of perplexity fell and Luther laughed deeply from heart for the good lesson, which he received from his resourceful wife, and for the way she gave him the lesson. Later on he shared with friends: “Once again I found out how smart my wife is when she freed me so cleverly from my sadness.” Are you one of the dark and always sad Christians? What is the preaching of your heart? The two of Emmaus were desperate, because they have lost their faith and hope. Jesus joined them and asked them why they are so sad, but they couldn’t recognize him, because the circumstances had overcome the faith and the words that He told them when He was alive. While they were telling the sad story of His death, He interrupted them and started to talk about the writings: “He said to them, “Foolish men, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! Didn’t the Christ have to suffer these things and to enter into his glory? ” Beginning from Moses and from all the prophets, he explained to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.” Luke 24:25; 27. And today many Christians think that God left them. They stay like orphans, like people that doesn’t have loving God that cares for them. They turn to God only to cry how miserable, sad and weak they are, how doomed is everything, how impossible is everything. For desperate modern believer, for the Christian believing in the way of life, there is only one solution – the Word of God to talk to him. Maybe our whole problem is that we are sluggish in our heart and we can’t believe enough for what the prophets spoke. But, if we teach ourselves to see Jesus in the whole Writing, the things will change. Today, we are staring at the church problems, the end of the world, or what must be a Christian, and we forget the One that must be the center of every teaching, every preach, every pray, the center of every church. Only if we are able to see the written for Christ in the books of Moses and the books of the prophets and the Apostles, only then our eyes will be able to open, so they can see Jesus, Who is so close to each one of us. Then He won’t be a stranger for us. “For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, and whoever will lose his life for my sake will find it.” Matthew 16:25. Jesus is the answer of our life. He is the way in which we walk, the truth which we care in our pure heart and the life which we live every day. “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.” John 14:6. Don’t allow the circumstances to prevent you from seeing the resurrected Christ in front of you.

I wish you full of His grace day!

2 Corinthians 3:1; 6: “Are we beginning again to commend ourselves? Or do we need, as do some, letters of commendation to you or from you? You are our letter, written in our hearts, known and read by all men; being revealed that you are a letter of Christ, served by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tablets of stone, but in tablets that are hearts of flesh. Such confidence we have through Christ toward God; not that we are sufficient of ourselves, to account anything as from ourselves; but our sufficiency is from God; who also made us sufficient as servants of a new covenant; not of the letter, but of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.”

What do you think is letter of commendation? What is its purpose? Today, the letter of commendation is used in big parts when someone is searching for a job for example. The goal of the commendation is to give to the potential employer extra, more specific information for the servant and worker, and this information should be based on the personal opinion of the previous employer. When God summoned me with my wife in this moving ministry of healing we were so happy to see how God glorifies Himself and heals different people in cities and villages, and when this started to get in other nations our joy was complete. We didn’t know all servants and churches in the cities, so God taught us to rely only to the Holy Spirit for open hearts of Pastors, so we can serve in their gatherings with the gifts that we have from God. We literally went to places guided by the Holy Spirit and I preached the word, without needing to tell who we are from where we are and who sends us. We are messengers of the Holy Spirit and no one could stop that. In many of the places we served truly with God’s grace, people were seeing our calling and they accepted us without back thoughts or needs of commendation. However, when we had to collide with churches, which had leaders who weren’t guided by the Holy Spirit, but by the owners of their denomination, things started to get hard. They started to deny us, to think what would people say, we are “invited” and then there’s a problem, etc. You know how these things happen in the world. There was a period of time in my life, in which I didn’t want to accept that there are churches of flesh. I was strongly convinced that each who preaches the word of God searches for God. Sadly, that wasn’t the case, and today we continue to meet with this fleshy act of commendation, connections, who is what to whoever, etc. This kind of work would never bring the things to fulfilling of God’s will. The Apostle says to the church in Corinth that there is no need of commendation to you from us or from us to you, because you are our letter which is written in our hearts. You are the letter, which every person can read. Tell me, brother and sisters, if you are truly God’s letter of commendation to the humans, what are they reading in you when they look at your life? What has God written exactly in your heart with the hand of the Holy Spirit? Because the word says to us: “For out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.” Matthew 12:34. The letter which God wrote in our heart through His Spirit leaves permanent mark on everything that we think and do. Today God doesn’t need stone tablets, walls, scripts, doesn’t need anything build from human hands to glorify Him with our life. God alone writes with His hand every day message in our spiritual heart and we have to let ourselves, to bow and obey to Him in everything, so we can be enlightened and improved for every good deed. “Every Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16; 17. Sometimes we hesitate, seeing our fleshy nature to take advantage in our fight with our spiritual nature, but we must not depress quickly, because all of us have the promise of God that He is strong to do what He wants: “And God is able to make all grace abound to you, that you, always having all sufficiency in everything, may abound to every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9:8. Here it’s said that the letter of commendation of God to this world will be written in us, because God is strong in word and action. Whatever He promised, He’s strong to do it. God says that He has plan and knows how to prepare and improve us completely, if we want that with our whole heart and if we trust Him completely. “To this end we also pray always for you, that our God may count you worthy of your calling, and fulfill every desire of goodness and work of faith, with power; that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.” 2 Thessalonians 1:11; 12. Whatever God writes in us remains permanent, it doesn’t fade. You know the people with the tattoos? That’s permanent drawing on the skin that can be hardly removed actually it’s almost impossible to remove. If a person can draw on his skin and that remains permanently, then why to doubt in the words of God that without ink and without needing Him again to write things on stones, God can write His word in our hearts with the pen of the Holy Spirit and to make from us servants of a new testament, not to the letter, “For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.”

I wish you wonderful and blessed by God day!

1 Peter 2:4; 8: “coming to him, a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God, precious. You also, as living stones, are built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. Because it is contained in Scripture, “Behold, I lay in Zion a chief cornerstone, chosen, and precious: He who believes in him will not be disappointed.” For you who believe therefore is the honor, but for those who are disobedient, “The stone which the builders rejected, has become the chief cornerstone,” and, “a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense.”

The message of Apostle Peter inspires us to walk in unity of the faith which is in Jesus Christ. But it’s not that kind of unity for which many people talk, which is impossible, but the only possible spiritual unity that unites us in Christ. In one way we have material things to live in, in other we have spiritual home. For what is the spiritual home created? Have you ever asked yourselves such question? When I think about, the home, presents a place where we should gather along with our family, to rest of our work, to enjoy one another with our loved ones, to be happy, to share sadness or joy together. When we speak about home, every single one of us remembers this wisdom: “My home is my fortress”. That is our place of safety, love and rest, the most important place in our life. Jesus says: “The foxes have holes, and the birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.” Matthew 8:20. Not only the humans, but the animals need home too. That’s how the world in which we live is created. Jesus was denied by this world like Messiah. John also says that there was no place in this world for the one who created it. “He was in the world, and the world was made through him, and the world didn’t recognize him.” John 1:10. That’s to be unknown in your own home. Denied by the ones who you love… That’s the worst thing that can happen to a person. Jesus came to restore our home, not the one of our earthly life, but the spiritual one! In the message of Apostle Peter is said that we gather in a spiritual home, that’s the church, to become holy priesthood. Outside of this spiritual home we are not holy. Why? Because in it we make spiritual sacrifices, pleasant to God through Jesus Christ. Amen! In this new home, in which we gather or build up together like a living stones chosen by God, Jesus is not denied, but instead He takes the most important part of the home. Jesus Himself is the main part and we all gather in Him. Prophet Isaiah says: “Here I put in Zion a main stone of the corner!” Why in Zion? What is Mount Zion? Psalms 87:2; 3 says: “Yahweh loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob. Glorious things are spoken about you, city of God.” The word Zion, written more than 150 times in the Bible means “fortification”. In the Bible, Zion is the city of David and the city of God. The first mentioning of the word “Zion” in the Bible is in 2 Samuel 5:7: “Nevertheless David took the stronghold of Zion. This is David’s city.” This way Zion was firstly the name of the ancient fortress in Jerusalem. Zion started to be known not only like the fortress, but also like the city of the fortress itself. After the takeover of the “fortress of Zion” by David, Zion was called “David’s city”. (1 Kings 8:1; 1, 1 Chronicles 11:5; 2, 2 Chronicles 5:2). When Solomon builds the temple in Jerusalem, Zion expands its meaning to include the temple and the land around it. (Psalms 2:5, 48:2, 11-12, 132:13). In the end Zion is used like a name for Jerusalem, the country of Judah and the people of Israel like whole (Isaiah 40:9; Jeremiah 31:12; Zechariah 9:13). The most important use of the word “Zion” is in it godly sense. Zion is used metaphorically for Israel like God’s people (Isaiah 60:14). The spiritual meaning of Zion continues in the New Testament, where it’s given to it Christian meaning like God’s spiritual kingdom, the heavenly Jerusalem (Hebrews 12:22; Revelation 14:1). The fortress of Zion is the new spiritual home, the fortress chosen by God, and her basis is Christ. Isn’t it wonderful that God again created a way for His people to have their own place of security, warm family love and hope? A place where you and I are invited to participate like resurrected from the dead of this world via the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ! For those who believe, this stone is precious, priceless, because it gathers us into one. In one faith, in one baptism, in one God! “There is one body, and one Spirit, even as you also were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all, and through all, and in us all.” Ephesians 4:4; 6. That’s the decision of God for the final times in which we live. The way of God to show His warmth and love to the people that forgot what is a real home, to the people which mind is debauched, the ones that denied God and debauched in their own thoughts, pride and selfishness. The same way Apostle Paul says in his message to the Romans: “They have all turned aside. They have together become unprofitable. There is no one who does good, no, not so much as one.” Romans 3:12. The people who stumble and get seduced in the word and those who deny it are the disobedient. The disobedience is a sin and brings every man to death. “For you were going astray like sheep; but now have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.” 1 Peter 2:25

I bless you for that and I remind you that you have a home that is eternal. Amen!

God bless you abundantly!

2 Corinthians 12:13; 16: “For what is there in which you were made inferior to the rest of the assemblies, unless it is that I myself was not a burden to you? Forgive me this wrong. Behold, this is the third time I am ready to come to you, and I will not be a burden to you; for I seek not your possessions, but you. For the children ought not to save up for the parents, but the parents for the children. I will most gladly spend and be spent for your souls. If I love you more abundantly, am I loved the less? But be it so, I did not myself burden you. But, being crafty, I caught you with deception.”

Traveling from place to place and from church to church, the Apostle meets the so called spiritual jealousy. We must understand the spiritual gifts and the ministries given by the Holy Spirit, so we can understand and what the Apostle says. “Now there are various kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are various kinds of service, and the same Lord.” 1 Corinthians 12:4; 5. Also, we need to be well aware with the services, distributed by the Holy Spirit for the needs of the church and her developing. “He who descended is the one who also ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things. He gave some to be apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, shepherds and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, to the work of serving, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a full grown man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;” Ephesians 4:10; 13. One thing is when someone is called by God in pastoral ministry and he is guardian of God’s grace in the given place, city or village, and other thing is when he’s called to be evangelist, prophet or apostle. They are usually traveling ministries, and the points of all are described in the verses above. I’ve noticed that there is a racing activity in the different churches instead of compassionate. Instead of helping each other and to have wishes for spiritual results, they, more and more, get away from each other, putting their personal interests in front of those of the God’s kingdom. That is what Apostle Paul sees in the church when he was in Corinth and now he tells them that directly in their eyes. With light sarcasm, which you can notice in the forgiveness that Paul wants from them, he says that he is treating all churches the same and he loves them so much that he’s ready to give his life for their souls. Like traveling ministry, I started to collide with this problem, and now I truly understand the position, from which Apostle Paul comes. But for what burden and for what heaviness it’s about here? In the next sentence we understand clearly that it’s about giving. With two words! If you want to be a burden to someone or to a church, just talk about giving. The Apostle says that he’s ready to come for third time to them, because he strongly wishes them, not theirs, and again we see that it’s about property. Don’t forget that by the time of the Apostles there was a moment in which everything was divided equally in the early church, and many of the people sold their property, so everyone can have equally. “All who believed were together, and had all things in common.” Acts 2:44. The thing that the Word must be preached the way it is doesn’t mean that for one should be compromise and for other burden. When it’s about faith, beliefs and church, the giving is main part of our worshiping and we must not give reason to Satan to burden us, because of the constant giving, which is not a self thingy for someone, but covenant with Jesus. The Apostle says to the church in Corinth that he will spend all his love, time and strength for blessing of their souls, so he can show that his love to them is truly big, not for their giving, but for them. In the next few verses we understand the reason for the message: “Did I take advantage of you by anyone of them whom I have sent to you? I exhorted Titus, and I sent the brother with him. Did Titus take any advantage of you? Didn’t we walk in the same spirit? Didn’t we walk in the same steps?” 2 Corinthians 12:17; 18. It’s clear that the Apostle apologized because of their behavior, but not to himself, but to the ones which he sent. It’s about Titus, the one that Paul sends to watch the church, but the church doesn’t accept him as servant of Christ, more like someone that lives on the back of others. Today, this spirit rooted himself deeply in the basics of the protestant movement and the honor and trust to the God’s servant is not everywhere. The best thing from the time and years when I was lessoned in the God’s Word I remember was exactly the hospitality, the trust of the people to the God’s servant. The people, who were enlightened and do this, are people that truly believe in the Good News and they are truly free in Spirit. On some places maybe with reason or not the devil develops his cruel plan for separation, jealousy, insulting of the church. Apostle Paul asks exact question to the church without being worried that someone will be insulted. “Did Titus take any advantage of you?” It truly sounds ugly. When someone gives his life in direction to teach the truths of the God’s Word and left everything and everyone because of this great deed to serve to the churches means that it’s a sin if you think about this person as someone that seeks personal winnings, if of course you don’t prove that it’s true. Paul reveals the spirit in the church with the saying: “Didn’t we walk in the same spirit? Didn’t we walk in the same steps?” It’s about that if someone insults Titus with his attitude, also insults the Apostle as well. If someone values my work through the Holy Spirit, he will learn to value his work too, because we drink from the same Spirit. “For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bond or free; and were all given to drink into one Spirit.” 1 Corinthians 12:13.

God bless all of us in this wonderful day!

“When they had stood them in the middle of them, they inquired, “By what power, or in what name, have you done this?” Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, “You rulers of the people, and elders of Israel, if we are examined today concerning a good deed done to a crippled man, by what means this man has been healed, be it known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, in him does this man stand here before you whole. He is ‘the stone which was regarded as worthless by you, the builders, which has become the head of the corner.’ There is salvation in none other, for neither is there any other name under heaven, that is given among men, by which we must be saved!” Acts 4:7; 12

I know that you know better the story written in Acts 3rd chapter, which brought the things to this unusual process, putting Apostle Peter and John to answer in front of everyone with what strength and in which name they do these great miracles. It’s about the history with the person, when Peter and John walked in the temple in the 9th hour of the prayer, and they brought a man, lame from his mother’s womb. Peter told him: “Silver and gold have I none, but what I have, that I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, get up and walk!” Because of that great miracle that happened, the people got excited and Peter had to preach the Good News to everyone, about the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. While the people of Israel listened, notice who, the priests with the head master of the temple’s guard and the Sadducees locked the Apostles, because they were insulted by the fact that they preached resurrection of the dead in the name of Jesus. However, something else happened, which made the whole elderly kind along with the high priest Annas, with Caiaphas, John, Alexander as well and their rulers, elders, and scribes, and these were the people that believed so far, and the numbers were about five thousand people. The important questions of this fake trial were: With what power and in which name you did that? Before noticing what exactly the Apostles said, I want to look at these questions from our point of view. After all, we live in 21st century and we can’t always understand the true taste of the things that happened two thousand years ago. Now, I’m not speaking exactly about the deed of the Apostles, but about the miracle of salvation that brought us today to be good example to be followed for the world, following the path of Christ. That of course confuses the people around us, because the path they walk is truly different from ours. Let me ask you this: When your family, colleagues and friends, seeing that you walk in Christ, ask you: What is this confidence of yours? Why are you doing this? What do you answer to them in this dramatic moment? I know that most people are worried about revealing the name of Jesus and their faith in resurrection of dead because of the fear of denial, misunderstanding, by the chance to get hurt or just to be ignored by people that are very close. Apostle Peter gives amazing lesson for following, teaching in one of his messages just that: “But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you are blessed. “Don’t fear what they fear, neither be troubled.”But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts; and always be ready to give an answer to everyone who asks you a reason concerning the hope that is in you, with humility and fear: having a good conscience; that, while you are spoken against as evildoers, they may be disappointed who curse your good way of life in Christ.” 1 Peter 3:14; 16. Do you know that with the right walking with humility and fear, having a good conscience, you can be very good witnesses about Christ’s resurrection and for the salvation that people can have in Jesus Christ’s name. When they asked Peter in which name he does these great deeds, he didn’t hesitate to say clearly the truth, because in the same exact moment he got filled with the Holy Spirit. The same strength that made this crippled man to walk now worked in Peter in different way, more specific, to testify the Christ’s resurrection. What made the Apostles and their students to be so brave and fully prepared in every moment to speak out the truth which filled their hearts? It was the same thing, the inner push, and that was the Holy Spirit of God. What happened to the Apostles when they were in Iconium: “In Iconium, they entered together into the synagogue of the Jews, and so spoke that a great multitude both of Jews and of Greeks believed. But the disbelievingJews stirred up and embittered the souls of the Gentiles against the brothers. Therefore they stayed there a long time, speaking boldly in the Lord, who testified to the word of his grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands.” Acts 14:1;3 They weren’t accepted with good hearts, even the unfaithful to God Jews created strife and resentment against them with no reason, but they still stayed because of those that were about to accept with grace in their hearts salvation and eternal life in the name of Jesus. What we are capable of today brothers and sisters? Quickly to give up any battle before she even started or to get filled with the Holy Spirit of God and speak boldly His word and to receive victories, capturing all minds to obey Christ. Yes, for it to happen in your life you must pass through the school of Jesus, so you can be learned to everyone necessary and to be dressed with power from above. Here’s what the military tactician, Apostle Paul, says when he speaks about the actions of the believers in Christ: “throwing down imaginations and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ;” 2 Corinthians 10:5. One day you’ll make all of that with ease, but teach yourselves and fill up with the God’s word every day and the Holy Spirit of God will teach you everything. Amen!

Jeremiah 30:1; 8 “The word that came to Jeremiah from Yahweh, saying, “Yahweh, the God of Israel, says, ‘Write all the words that I have spoken to you in a book. For, behold, the days come,’ says Yahweh, ‘that I will turn again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah,’ says Yahweh. ‘I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.’” These are the words that Yahweh spoke concerning Israel and concerning Judah. For Yahweh says: “We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace. Ask now, and see whether a man travails with child. Why do I see every man with his hands on his waist, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned pale? Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it. It is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it. It shall come to pass in that day, says Yahweh of Armies, that I will break his yoke from off your neck, and will burst your bonds; and strangers shall no more make them their bondservants;”

The word that God gave to prophet Jeremiah was a word for releasing, restoration, breaking of the yoke, breaking of the chains. The word of God was a promise for going out of captivity and returning again to the land of the promise. If we read the whole chapter in the next few verses we’ll see that God lone made a big and incurable wound, because of the many iniquities and sins that multiplied. In verse 15, God gives clear explanation about His actions again. “Why do you cry for your hurt? Your pain is incurable: for the greatness of your iniquity, because your sins were increased, I have done these things to you.” Why God is so harsh to the sins and the iniquities of Israel? When we see God in this light of His, we truly are scared and shocked. Why? - Because we can’t see the sin like something that cares certain death. God sees that and wants at any cost to protect us from total failure and death. James 1:15: “Then the lust, when it has conceived, bears sin; and the sin, when it is full grown, produces death.” Who is in danger of sin? Everyone who sins! “Everyone who sins also commits lawlessness. Sin is lawlessness.” 1 John 3:4. When there’s sin in the life of the believer, it brings him into fear of punishment and captive. Because the word claims otherwise, the one who lives righteously and has love inside, doesn’t care the fear of punishment in his heart. “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear has punishment. He who fears is not made perfect in love.” 1 John 4:18. What we see in Israel and Judah? - A voice of trembling, fear, not peace. God says that He sees pale faces of men filled with fear with hands on their waists like women that are about to give birth. Today, I see in the spirit so many pale faces of believers, feared for the next day. They stay bounded in their own sins and chatter with teeth in fear, because of the enemy and the iniquities. They stay with hands on their waists not knowing what to do, because instead of God’s kingdom of peace, happiness and justice in their life, there is incredible fear of failure. They don’t see the power of God. He is ready in time like this to free them of every sin and injustice by the blood of the High Priest of our souls, who was sent to the earth, to save us from the slavery of the sin and death. We see God to turn to the people of Israel with words of promise and healing: “Therefore all those who devour you shall be devoured; and all your adversaries, everyone of them, shall go into captivity; and those who plunder you shall be plunder, and all who prey on you will I give for a prey. For I will restore health to you, and I will heal you of your wounds,” says Yahweh; “because they have called you an outcast, saying, ‘It is Zion, whom no man seeks after.’” Jeremiah 30:16; 17. Do you know that God cares for you even when He sees you fallen, beaten and injured by the sin and the iniquities? Everyone who used you in time of weakness will answer to justice and he will have to return the stolen from you and that is biblical fact of the New Testament. The devil, the demons and the impure souls are the ones that steal from you, but God will order to the devourer to return everything that he took from you when you were sick, depressed, scared, dejected, with pale faces. Apostle Paul mentions in one of his messages to Timothy that there was a man that did great evil to him, but he thinks that God won’t leave the things like that, and He will repay him for the deeds of injustice. “Alexander, the coppersmith, did much evil to me. The Lord will repay him according to his deeds,” 2 Timothy 4:14. God speaks in Malachi that He will rebuke the devourer when the people return from their sins and repent from their whole heart. “I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast its fruit before its time in the field,” says Yahweh of Armies.” Malachi 3:11. And when it’s about salvation, God’s big mercy and patience, His huge love says: “And so all Israel will be saved. Even as it is written, “There will come out of Zion the Deliverer, and he will turn away ungodliness from Jacob. This is my covenant to them, when I will take away their sins.” Romans 11:26; 27. The New Testament is the Christ’s blood that cleans us from every sin and injustice. That is why today, no matter who you are, be zealous to repent and He will forgive your sin and bless the days of your life like He promised. Amen! Pray and believe in His word, because the time of grace given to us is for everyone. Today, He calls to you, don’t harden your heart for Him!

Hello Church, 26th July 2013


1 Peter 4:10; 11 “As each has received a gift, employ it in serving one another, as good managers of the grace of God in its various forms. If anyone speaks, let it be as it were the very words of God. If anyone serves, let it be as of the strength which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.”

On first place let’s say for what gifts it’s said about here. The gifts are the most exciting thing of this world and people strive to them, because they are supernatural phenomenon and they give specific advantage to each that owns them. Many people today make a lot of money from that, and they live from them. The gifts are things which we can’t make by ourselves, they are supernatural blessing. You receive gift and you start doing with ease things, which for other people it’s very hard, even impossible, to do. The gifts in this world are different and I believe that each of us can name dozens of them. But, when we speak about spiritual gifts, given by the Holy Spirit, the things change radically. Let me give you an example from the Word, so we can divide the gifts that come from the Holy Spirit and those that come from the devil. “But there was a certain man, Simon by name, who used to practice sorcery in the city, and amazed the people of Samaria, making himself out to be some great one, to whom they all listened, from the least to the greatest, saying, “This man is that great power of God.” They listened to him, because for a long time he had amazed them with his sorceries.” Acts 8:9; 11 Did you notice that this guy had a gift, which was obvious, because it attracted people, but also deception, because it was not from God, but from demons? Most people of the mob followed him, because he made sorceries and illusions. These are the gifts of the devil. Remember that the Word says to us that he is the father of the lie, and he is very good at lying. “He was a murderer from the beginning, and doesn’t stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks on his own; for he is a liar, and its father.” John 8:44. If you knew well our enemy, the devil, you would know well that everything he does is a lie and a temporary illusion. Even healing through rituals and levitations and other such things that are weird to people. Today, many people leave themselves to be lied with ease by him, while others resist and defy his lies. This person, Simon, has already made name and the people were following him because of what they saw happening through him, while believing that it’s a gift from God. The magic is science and art for challenging your mind and will to change. Can be also interpreted like ability for creating the wanted effects and controlling the events with the help of acts, rituals and ceremonials, affecting the natural and supernatural powers. At any means it is something mystical and secretly for people. The devil is good with that right? But, the things are changing radically when God starts to do true miracles. “But when they believed Philip preaching good news concerning God’s Kingdom and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. Simon himself also believed. Being baptized, he continued with Philip. Seeing signs and great miracles occurring, he was amazed.” Acts 8:12; 13. Now this is important for you to see! Simon really thought that he has a gift from God to help the people until he saw people with true gift from God like Philip for example. When everyone believed and baptized themselves in the name of Jesus, the sorcerer himself, Simon, did the same and followed Philip. According to our model for believer, he was already one. In what did Simon believed exactly? He accepted with faith everything that was told to him, because he was impressed by the miracles and the great deeds that were happening by the hands of the Apostles. He strongly wished to go with them, so he can acquire the same gifts. Simon even offered money, only and only to be able to get what he desired: “saying, “Give me also this power that whomever I lay my hands on may receive the Holy Spirit.” But Peter said to him, “May your silver perish with you, because you thought you could obtain the gift of God with money! You have neither part nor lot in this matter, for your heart isn’t right before God. Repent therefore of this, your wickedness, and ask God if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you. For I see that you are in the poison of bitterness and in the bondage of iniquity.” Acts 8:19; 23. Let’s say some words about the gifts of the Holy Spirit. First, they are from God and they are given by the Holy Spirit: “Now there are various kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit.” 1 Corinthians 12:4. God gives gifts to everyone by His will, not by peoples will: “But the one and the same Spirit produces all of these, distributing to each one separately as he desires.” 1 Corinthians 12:11. It’s wrong and proudly to want a specific gift, but is important to pray and wish for God to give you gift, through which you will praise Him. The gifts are different and are given for common usage; One speaks with wisdom, other with mind, other has gift of faith, healing gifts, great deeds, prophesy, knowing of the spirits, speaking different languages, interpreting languages. Here are described nine different ways through which the Holy Spirit works in the life of the believers. These are supernatural gifts, which are given to people that want to glorify God with their whole life. I believe that a person should have at least one, if not all the gifts of the Holy Spirit. That’s why the Apostle says: “But earnestly desire the best gifts. Moreover, I show a most excellent way to you.” 1 Corinthians 12:31. Most excellent way than the gifts is the way of love that sits over each gift. If you want to serve to God, make that with the power given to you by Him. Do it for His glory with boldness and truth. There are many sorcerers in this world you are more valuable than them, because you have the Holy Spirit. He abides in you till the end. Amen!

May God give you beneficial day church! I bless you today in the name of Jesus.

Romans 2:1; 6 “Therefore you are without excuse, O man, whoever you are who judge. For in that which you judge another, you condemn yourself. For you who judge practice the same things. 2 We know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practice such things. 3 Do you think this, O man who judges those who practice such things, and do the same, that you will escape the judgment of God? 4 Or do you despise the riches of his goodness, forbearance, and patience, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance? 5 But according to your hardness and unrepentant heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath, revelation, and of the righteous judgment of God; 6 who “will pay back to everyone according to their works:”

We need to make big difference between justice, conviction, counseling, edification. The Bible says to us that God personally raised people that should deal exactly with that: “He who descended is the one who also ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things. He gave some to be apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, shepherds and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, to the work of serving, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a full grown man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;” Ephesians 4:10; 13. Let me say this, the same activity from the mouth of people which are not called in this sphere can turn everything into judgment, like from their mouth to people and from them back to their own life. That is what Apostle Paul says to the church in Rome. There is no excuse for such people for God, because they were already warned multiple times. They will carry the burden of their pride and stupidity because of their ignorance and self-righteous heart. Now, let me ask you something! What would you say about that? If someone speaks from your name and judges unknown to you people without you sending him, and the reactions and the curses of the people are turned against you with no reason, won’t you get angry to those who do this with or without understanding? Oh yeah, you’ll be very angry for that. That’s what the Apostle says. God will watch the people that do this in the exact same way despite His rich kindness, forbearance and patience. Today, people in selfish ministry are doing exactly that, without being worried by the fact that they are not appointed by God to do this, they put judgment by their own thinking, quoting parts taken from here and there, supporting them with some amazing biblical verse to prove the authenticity of their own thought, so people can think that it comes from God, and they insistently want everyone to say Amen to that! When an opinion is given for spiritual things, everyone should be very careful about what he says. It’s not less important to who he says it and with what spirit he says it. If you speak with people in the market or the trade fairs or in facebook, which is nothing bad, but when you speak to someone with advice, judgment or correction connected to whatever in the spiritual world, be careful. God watches and sifts all interference done from His name without Him allowing it. The ability of the crowds to interpret the Word today, without having even a root of faith inside them, just with humanly wisdoms, brought the true Christ way of building church to meaningless and devaluation. If you think that Satan will jump aside and will watch the church growing in holiness and purity, you are deeply lying to yourself. His servants are between us from a long time. Active in deeds, they show off from the nothing, without any call or meeting with Jesus, they give sharp opinions and judge with evilness the messengers of God and peace. This destroys the life of the church, making her to despise every single servant and every single righteous worker of God, and I’m telling you, they are not few. The goal of Satan is to remove the leadership in a church, everything else is too easy. This is the same satanic trick, like we see today in the form of provocation in our peaceful protests of our country. The place where the majority of people want justice and peace other people go with their selfish ideas, interests and statements, having for aim to show themselves to people and to ruin everything true and holy. There are many provocateurs in the Christian circles send by Satan today, but the scarier thing is that they don’t even know that. Many people act rude and arrogantly without even understanding that inside them rules not the Holy Spirit, but demons. The demons have for target to destroy, kill and scatter the precious riches of Christ inside us. The target of Satan today is the church not to believe in the God’s sermon, to be shaken and secretly misguided. When we stop to believe in what God says, we are already followers of other spiritual kingdom that has other goals. God says that on this earth He’ll put His own guidance via loyal people of truth, which He will rise. He will rise them in humility, obedience to the truth and to His holy word. Today we must believe more than ever on every word that comes out of God’s mouth and to follow it accordingly to the action of His Holy Spirit. This will bring good fruits, which are proof for that God did all of this. The servants of God will be strong and brave, and will fully serve to the body of Christ, teaching it to everything that God said. How will they teach it? Not only with words, but they are send in actions for that as well by the anointing of the Holy Spirit. 1 John 2:27 “As for you, the anointing which you received from him remains in you, and you don’t need for anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is no lie, and even as it taught you, you will remain in him.”

Hello Church, 24th July 2013

James 5:13; 16 “Is any among you suffering? Let him pray. Is any cheerful? Let him sing praises. Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the assembly, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will heal him who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Confess your offenses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The insistent prayer of a righteous person is powerfully effective.”

Seems so easy, but it’s not, because it requires dedicated and true faith. How many of you dear brothers and sisters start to pray only when you are sick? I want to tell you that in most cases people that are in bad condition and pass through harsh times start to fall spiritually more than having strength to pray. Then, for which people it’s spoken here? Who are those people, which in hash times will find strength to pray to God? It’s the people which are used to pray. To pray at any time and to count on God to help you requires time and dedication. The true and unwavering faith in the human heart is accompanied by constant prayer. In one of his messages, Apostle Paul says this: “Rejoicing in hope; enduring in troubles; continuing steadfastly in prayer;” Romans 12:12. While I’m reading these words I saw a chain, which person can’t easily break. You know that the chain is created by sequence of links, rings or metal plates, interconnected by mutual interlacing, pressing or riveting. Then, allow me to interconnect the words hope, steadfast, stability. What happened? When we speak about hope, I’ll show you immediately this verse: “Being therefore justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ; through whom we also have our access by faith into this grace in which we stand. We rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only this, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope: and hope doesn’t disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” Romans 5:1; 5. We see that hope doesn’t bring shame from its actions in Jesus. Steadfast is the next word with huge meaning when it comes to growth and building of our faith. “Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the Lord’s work, because you know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 15:58. So far we understand that hope is not ashamed because of God’s love which we accepted in our hearts and the steadfastness of our faith comes by the fact that we know God, and He is true in word and action. Amen! He will hear our prayer and will answer to it, because we pray by His will. Let me add and the third link, so we can see what will happen. What was it? Stability! When we speak about stability in faith it means our dependence of the prayer. Do you know that only the believing people pray sincerely and constantly? Why? Because they believe that everything they want in prayer will be given to them. Not everyone agree to do that. There are many people that put etiquettes of believers, but they never pray sincerely to God until they receive the promise. When the difficulties of the devil come, he starts to overcome them only because they are not used to solve their problems through prayer. For the believers it’s said that they don’t rely on the randomness or the circumstances to change things, but on the strength of the prayer. They already have rich experience in that, because they devoted themselves to prayer all the time. “with all prayer and requests, praying at all times in the Spirit, and being watchful to this end in all perseverance and requests for all the saints:” Ephesians 6:18. Now you see that when you link the details of God’s will with experience in your life, you’ll be strong in harsh time to pray. When you are cheerful, James says to sing Him praises. Do you know how many people deal with bunch of silly things instead of sparing time to thank God for the time of eternal grace, which they have? Here’s for example a person that is calm, because everything is fine for him and decided not to get rich in God, because the riches he got are enviable: “I will tell my soul, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years. Take your ease, eat, drink, be merry.”’ “But God said to him, ‘You foolish one, tonight your soul is required of you. The things which you have prepared—whose will they be?’ So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.” Luke 12:19; 21. Many are the people that when they are safe don’t know what exactly to do. Instead of continuing to praise God with songs for that He blessed them abundantly, to help people with prayer and in deed to be ready to show calmness in their gorgeous life, only because that was their aim all the time. The word teaches us, the ones that sits today and watch, not to fall tomorrow and that is the reason for us to be always cheerful in tireless and constant prayer of thankfulness. We see that there is big power in the constant prayer of the righteous, even when we are sick there is an exit way. It’s not said, deal with it alone, but call for the elders of assembly, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord, this will give good results. God will forgive your sins and your sicknesses will go away. Blessed day to everyone from me, rely on God for everything!

2 Corinthians 7:1; 3 “Having therefore these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. Open your hearts to us. We wronged no one. We corrupted no one. We took advantage of no one. I say this not to condemn you, for I have said before, that you are in our hearts to die together and live together.”

On first place let’s say for what promises it’s said about here. If we look at chapter six and read the last few verses we will find out why Apostle Paul insists the church to be cleansed from all defilement of flesh and spirit: “Therefore “‘Come out from among them, and be separate,’ says the Lord. ‘Touch no unclean thing. I will receive you. I will be to you a Father. You will be to me sons and daughters,’ says the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:17; 18. Be separate from what? Be cleansed from what? - To separate our life from the unbelieving spheres, from the deception of the wickedness, to uproot ourselves out of the old habits of flesh impurity. Why is that so important? God wants to be our father and us to be His sons and daughters, but that can’t happen if we are not following the Christ’s way. Enlightened and cleansed in the blood of Jesus, today we have peace with God. “Having therefore, brothers, boldness to enter into the holy place by the blood of Jesus, by the way which he dedicated for us, a new and living way, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; and having a great priest over God’s house, let’s draw near with a true heart in fullness of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and having our body washed with pure water, let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering; for he who promised is faithful. Let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good works,” Hebrews 10:19; 24. The veil that divided the holy from the most holy place in the temple, and not everyone had access to God, but only the chosen high priest, who had to make special sacrifice once in a year, and the blood was taken to the most holy place. This was happening only once a year and he carried with himself the warm blood of the victim and with it sprinkled the mercy seat on the law. The mercy seat was the golden cover of the coffin, which contained the Ten Commandments. That is the law that was broken and crossed by each one of us and nobody deserved to live. “For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God;” Romans 3:23. There were exact instructions how the veil to be placed to divide the sin from the holiness, the darkness from the light, because nothing impure could get close to God and to stay alive, even if it was the high priest. “You shall hang up the veil under the clasps, and shall bring the ark of the testimony in there within the veil: and the veil shall separate the holy place from the most holy for you.” Exodus 26:33. That’s how it was ordered to Moses to fulfill everything, so the people can be justified and to remain alive. Sometimes we can’t understand and know in our fleshy nature that the sin truly kills us and keeps us away from life, which is Jesus alone. That is why God sent to the world His begotten Son Jesus Christ, to make a living and available way to God through the true veil, His flesh, so we can enter as well in the most holy place without dying, but to remain alive by the blood of the New Testament. “Jesus cried again with a loud voice, and yielded up his spirit. Behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from the top to the bottom. The earth quaked and the rocks were split. The tombs were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised;” Matthew 27:50; 52. Can we see it! How strong and dramatically God involves Himself in the history of the human nature. My body shivers when I read that. Jesus cried again with a loud voice and yielded up His spirit, but after that there was no silence, like it’s when most of the people die. When He died, the first thing that happened was the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to the bottom. Never and nothing gets torn in the opposite way on this earth. You can’t just take some cloth, to pull it, and to be torn in the opposite direction towards you. It’s getting torn from the side from which your hands make the action. Now look at this. God’s hands made the action of their love to the humanity first. God physically interfered in this corrupted world, tearing apart the veil of the temple, from top (the heaven) to bottom (the earth), which hold the people away from God for so long, so people could come in His presence and stay alive, not to die in their sins. The new and living way to the heavens is now created. Through the flesh of Jesus and His high priestly blood, God gave the beginning of a New Testament and promise to each who comes in this way to live eternal life will be called God’s son and daughter. That’s why the Apostle says that it’s important to remove all defilement of flesh and spirit, so we can be pleasing to God. Do you think that today God’s not looking on us, how much we, like his children, value the blood of Christ that was shed on the cross? “Therefore, putting away all filthiness and overflowing of wickedness, receive with humility the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.” James 1:21. Accept the word of the Christ’s fullness, which is sent to you, brothers and sisters, and it will guide you to repentance and holy life, it can save your souls. Amen!
I believe that you will have a wonderful day today and I pray to God for you to have open heart to the words of the Holy Spirit, which will remind you the Christ way, on which you should walk.

Blessed day to everyone, with much love Pastor Vasil Petrov

Daniel 6:10: “When Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house (now his windows were open in his room toward Jerusalem) and he kneeled on his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did before.”

The first six chapters of the book “Daniel” have historical nature, and they are about the life of Daniel. The last six chapters contain sequence of prophetic visions, which theme is “God’s plan throughout the centuries”. Chapter first of the book marks the experiences and the visions of Daniel by the time of the Jewish exile in Babylon. He is captured and taken there along with Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, and they get assigned to be ministers at the times of Nebuchadnezzar. Their ancestry, youth and exceptional intellectual level attract the attention of king Nebuchadnezzar. That’s why they start to teach them Chaldean and to prepare them for special service in Babylon. Despite being exiled in unknown land, these four young people stay true to their faith and they do not allow any compromise with their religious beliefs. Daniel, which means “God is my judge”, is one of the presidents, for which the Word says that he had exceptional spirit! In the third verse it’s said: “Then this Daniel was distinguished above the presidents and the satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.” When he won the trust of the king his enemies suddenly became too many. When I read the story of Daniel I think for our spiritual life, which we live after we were baptized in water and in the Holy Spirit. Through the blood of Jesus, God gifted us new, true, life and said that we will be His sons and daughters: “I will be to you a Father. You will be to me sons and daughters,’ says the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:18. Isn’t it wonderful? Who would want to do evil to you after you changed from evil to good? Apostle Peter recreates the same promises with much more intriguing words: “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, that you may proclaim the excellence of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:” 1 Peter 2:9. Now I see that after we are called by Jesus to live holy life, there are people and evil spiritual creatures called “demons”, which won’t like that. The kingdom of darkness will never leave us alone only because we became better, just the opposite, it’ll want to destroy us. What happened to Daniel? Full of hatred, his enemies create a plain to take him down. The satraps put him into a trap, they forbid with a royal decree the prayer to any god, except the king. The target is clear, Daniel must be destroyed. That’s what Satan wants to do to the devoted to God people today. Do you think that he changed his intentions to the body of Christ these days? No! “Be sober and self-controlled. Be watchful. Your adversary, the devil, walks around like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” 1 Peter 5:8. What was Daniel doing when he was clearly seeing the trap that the enemy was creating? He did not stop to do what he did every day. The exit of impossible situation is to continue making the same as every day! Halleluiah! He kept the windows open of his room open to Jerusalem, falling down on his knees three times a day, praying and thanking to his God. Nothing could change his way of thanking and obedience to God. Brothers and sisters what is the thing that can change your worship and devotion to God today? Have you ever thought about that? What is the strategy of Satan these days and what he’ll want from you today? Maybe to change your ways of prayer or to stop thanking God for His multiple mercies that He shows to you, or to start worshiping the creation, not the Creator. Daniel was thrown in the pit of the lions because he disobeyed the royal decree. Today, the traps and the pits which the devil open in front of us are too many. Even if we fall in some of them, it’s not going to be the end. When the king ordered the execution, he, alone, turned to his favorite president and told him in verse 16: “Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel, and cast him into the den of lions. The king spoke and said to Daniel, Your God whom you serve continually, he will deliver you.” It’s good to know, brother and sister, that no matter what you go thru today, no matter the traps that devil put in front of you, when you serve God all the time with prayer and thanks, He will deliver you from anything and will take you to safe place. Apostle Paul advises young Timothy with the words: “But you did follow my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith, patience, love, steadfastness, persecutions, and sufferings: those things that happened to me at Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra. I endured those persecutions. The Lord delivered me out of them all. Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.” 2 Timothy 3:10; 12. The confidence, which we have according to Him and the confession of our mouth today, say it with me, is: “And the Lord will deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me for his heavenly Kingdom; to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.” 2 Timothy 4:18. Let’s never stop worshiping God and to never change our ways of thanking Him for everything in our new spiritual life. Grace and peace to be multiplied for you today saints! God loves you and me too.

“Which of you by being anxious can add a cubit to his height? If then you aren’t able to do even the least things, why are you anxious about the rest?” Luke 12:26; 26

These days we live in a quickly evolving, dynamic world filling our daily life with challenges, adding care after care in our life. Today, this is one of the things that we must fight against. The care is the message of the world, adding unstopping obligation, with which we must deal all the time. That is the irreversible circle of the surrounding us reality that tries to obligate our whole attention at such level, so we won’t have a single happy moment in our life to enjoy. When I see truly anxious people and I look into their eyes I see only the fatigue and the pain by unfulfilled dreams despite the daily work they do. “And the cares of this age, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.” Mark 4:19. The Bible says that the worldly cares will mute the word in us and it won’t give fruit. That is what Satan wants to do in our life, not to have any time for joy and praise for God. What feeds our immortal soul? Of course that is the word of God. Nothing else on this world is able to fill the emptiness in our heart the way like His insightful words. Many times we speak about the worldly cares like matter, and exactly what we’ll eat or wear. That is the visible and urgent problem of every household. Providing the daily needs sometimes comes in front of us in the form of big mountain, which we must cross every day. We put our whole effort and strength in that to provide the needs of our home, and this may become our biggest enemy. Jesus said it in this way. Look at the lilies, they don’t take care for their looks, but Father in Heavens, makes their clothes so pretty with ease. Look the crows, they don’t sow, they don’t harvest, they don’t have shelter or granary, but still God feeds them. How much more expensive you are than the birds! Jesus says that the care is problem, because she is instrument of the devil that will mute the word in you, and from there the faith in your heart. In the scripture is said that in the final days of cares, and people will become evil. That’s what I notice today to happen with such a dynamic that for the person there is no time to look to his life like something beautiful. People become eviler and confused. How can we protect ourselves from all that? Here’s the answer: “Don’t seek what you will eat or what you will drink; neither be anxious. For the nations of the world seek after all of these things, but your Father knows that you need these things. But seek God’s Kingdom, and all these things will be added to you.” Luke 12:29; 31. Can we really believe this word these days? Does God truly have in mind what He says? Not seeking what the world seeks means not to walk the way in which the world walks. Not to become like them and to have the providing of needs like main target, but to trust God for this that He is truly strong to take care of each need we have. Jesus says that only if we want that from God, He’ll give it to us. Allowing God to become Master in our life, He truly takes the care for it. Amen! But let’s say that this is the visible problem. Now let me show you the invisible one, the one that unnoticeably comes like a trap ready to capture us in unstopping circle and to capture our whole mind. Let me show you what I have in mind. When some of the Pharisees and Herodians came to Jesus to capture Him in His speaking, Jesus answered them in this way: “When they had come, they asked him, “Teacher, we know that you are honest, and don’t defer to anyone; for you aren’t partial to anyone, but truly teach the way of God. Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?” Mark 12:14. What do you see them saying like qualification for Jesus and His approved attitude? What kind of line the people that want to capture Jesus in His talking see? We can see that after we look what they point for Him and the something that prevents them to take Him under their control, which is what they do with a whole nation. But, why they can’t capture Jesus in this trap? The words are: “and don’t defer to anyone”! That is a huge problem. Many times we do things in our life, guided by wrong motives. One of the motives for example is: What will people say about us. Many people today are cornered by Satan and they become slaves of this thought, which actually defines their daily life and real attitude. That’s a real problem. Jesus didn’t care about what will people say about Him, because He knew well what He must do and what Father wants Him to be. If you know the way in which you must walk, there is no need from someone to tell you all the time what you must do every day. Obeying such thought, unnoticeably, it will become a leading part of your daily life and one day you’ll have to fully depend on the opinion of this already burdened world. What will people say about you is not such an important thing. More important is what God will say about you, when you have in mind that you surrendered fully your life to Him, devoting yourself to follow Him in a New Testament. It’s important to know what God thinks about you and to learn to trust Him for every word that comes out of His mouth. “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,” says Yahweh, “thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11. God will never think how to harm you, because this is what the devil is doing. God thinks for your future and hope, and if you allow him, He will add in your life, and you won’t need to care about all of that. Faith, trust in His word, devotion to follow Him, are only part of the things in which you must grow up to be like Him. I will be truly happy when I meet more and more people that believe and stay away from that: “What will people say!” Be one of them, it will make your life much easier, believe me! I wish you beautiful day and something more than a casual and unnoticed day. Seek what is up more than what is down. Amen!

“For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, instructing us to the intent that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we would live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world; looking for the blessed hope and appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ; who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify for himself a people for his own possession, zealous for good works.” Titus 2:11; 14

God’s saving grace, Jesus, came to this world in flesh, so He can show us exactly who is God. Jesus revealed Father with the life He lived on this earth. For a big period of time that was hidden from the generations throughout the centuries, so it can be revealed in the right time through the God’s Begotten Son Jesus. “The mystery which has been hidden for ages and generations. But now it has been revealed to his saints, to whom God was pleased to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory;” Colossians 1:26; 27. It’s amazing if you think about it! Christ among us, which means God with us. His great mercy and grace given already so close to man that God alone could touch through the hands of Christ every flesh and to heal it. He was visiting each home to bless it and save it and He was going to the sinners to free them from the bonds of Satan and to attract them to His constant light. This saving grace was given to all humans on this earth so that anyone that believes in Christ to have eternal life inside him, not to perish. When people accept this grace, they are very happy, because that is their amazing chance given to them directly by God. However, many of them want only the gifted salvation, but not the one who gives it to them. These are two very different things. To receive salvation is easy. It is a result of God’s plan for salvation of the humanity via the God’s Son Jesus, given in the hands of impure people to be mocked, rejected, humiliated, beaten, despised and killed, because we can’t accept the prize of salvation, which is gifted to us only because of faith in Him. That is God! He is love to the whole creation, to everything which He created. However, there is something else, which people doesn’t want to accept so easy, something that goes with the package of salvation, and that is exactly the thing that teaches us the salvation itself, to reject the impureness of the worldly passions and to live soberly, righteously, and devoutly in the current world. Denying the worldly passions is not an easy task. This is not participating in Sunday services, singing of spiritual hymns and reading the word, something that we should do with ease. This is self denying and presenting of our own personality in front of God like a holy temple for Him. This requires total commitment and love to the Creator of the universe and to those around us. Why, sometimes, it happens just in the opposite way? Saved people demonstrate with their life true disobedience, pride and selfishness more than ever. The answer of this question is very simple: “For everyone who does evil hates the light, and doesn’t come to the light, lest his works would be exposed.” John 3:20. Do you think such people love Jesus? The people that run away of the light always have from what to hide, because their deeds are impure. They are in constant sin and obsessed by their passions they bow down to demons, but not to God. Do you think that we, with our lives, crave for the blessed hope, the glorious appearance of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ? Do you think our human nature pants for God, like deer that is thirsty and seeks streams of water? “As the deer pants for the water brooks, so my soul pants after you, God.” Psalms 42:1. Maybe if I say this like that, you’ll understand my heart, and what my soul seeks. We are enjoying the salvation that God has given to us, but we are not looking just for it. Our aim is much stronger than ever to get closer to the one that gives it, and that is something totally different. Life with Christ in His justice and truth, that is the life for which we pray, seek and want. Jesus alone gave His life for us, so He can clean us from the sin and make us people for Him. This means that from Christ’s side we have a calling to live with Him forever, not just knowing Him. Doesn’t this excide you, the fact that God, the Creator and Maker of everything visible and invisible wants to spend eternity exactly with you? Don’t you ask yourself the question why He does that? Who are you for Him to give you this opportunity? When everyone denies you, He accepts you. When people hurt you, He hugs you. When the devil wants to kill you, He comes in front of you and stops his intentions. When the world hates you, He loves you deeply, because He accepted you the way you are. That is called true and unfeigned love. If you are worthy person and you accepted this grace of salvation, you’ll show as well that you love Him, starting to follow Him with your whole heart and soul. Your hope of salvation won’t be only in what you’ll receive, but in what you’ll give on this earth. “If anyone desires to do his will, he will know about the teaching, whether it is from God, or if I am speaking from myself. He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory, but he who seeks the glory of him who sent him is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.” John 7:17; 18. Those who are true in Christ speak, act and serve for Him with their whole heart by their own will. Not by force or personal strive or aim. People that look for His glory are those who truly love Him. Let’s be like them, the people of the piety, those who God prepared to be zealous for good deeds and to glorify Him with the life they live on this earth. When we live and act, let’s think daily about this, that we are holy temples of God and teach ourselves to hold to the calling, which we have by God. He will rejoice for us and will bless us for our entire life. “Yahweh will again rejoice over you for good, as he rejoiced over your fathers;” Deuteronomy 30:9. If you expect His coming, this will make you think for Him in a way in which He will protect you from daily stumbling. I bless you church to walk in the path of God with grace in your heart and never forget His unlimited mercy, which He did to all of us.

With much love to the body of Christ, Pastor Vasil Petrov

“However, I consider those things that were gain to me as a loss for Christ. Yes most certainly, and I count all things to be a loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus, my Lord, for whom I suffered the loss of all things, and count them nothing but refuse, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own, that which is of the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; that I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, becoming conformed to his death;” Philippians 3:7; 10.

Today everyone seeks a way to acquire some stuff. If we start to describe them in details, even the smallest ones, you’ll see that they are too many. Everything happens under the influence of our fleshy senses, which have the ability to affect our real judgment. I’ll give you example with our eyes. They see the new model mobile phone and immediately you get inside you a wish to have it. Just like that. Maybe someone will say: Well I’m not so deep into the mobile phones! Yes, but I’m sure that there is something else that will capture your mind quickly once your system of perception activates, which you have anyway. Believe it or not the only ones that don’t wish for anything on this earth are the dead people, for which I don’t want to talk this morning. “And the cares of this age, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.” Mark 4:19. Did everyone hear what the word says? “Lusts of other things”! I think that they really are something if you have the habit of watching TV, the thousands of advertisements, ready to derange your fragile and naïve subconscious. Our mind is able to convert and remember this data, even if you are not watching the TV all the time. Just look your children and tell me that I’m wrong. I noticed that instead of a song, today’s easy way to make a child to get silent is to turn the TV on for him. Works, doesn’t it? How many smiled and jumping around babies in their cot and baby walkers are enjoying the happy sounds of our fruitless TVs. Most people lose the point of what the Bible says, to teach your child in early age in God, like putting in his subconscious pointless advertisements instead of teaching him the word and singing him spiritual hymns or to pray for him out loud so he can hear from where his true love and protection comes. “You fathers, don’t provoke your children to wrath, but nurture them in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” Ephesians 6:4. To acquire stuff in this world can be a very dangerous thing for you, because everything that’s around you can affect you to take wrong decisions. This will mute the needs of your true spiritual senses in you and will make you dependant not to spiritual, but to material utilities. The Apostle says that everything which he had in his life like assets, or like we call it today, something which can give you advantage everywhere, in his eyes is like a loss. This is not normal in the life of people these days. I think that actually everyone seeks just the opposite. To acquire sponsors for example for some pastors is a very important and crucial, when it’s about their so called spiritual ministry. With all strength, ignoring all moral and biblical values, they capture every single human idea, advertisement and opportunity for reaching their goal, instead of devoting time to pray and wait humbly to hear what God will say. We, like Christians, must deny the assets of this world, which will undoubtedly bring in wrong direction not only our personal life, but it will threaten even the call that many people have by God. What is excels in your thoughts today, life with Jesus, or everything else which you already acquired in your life? For Apostle Paul there is no doubt. He says that leaving everything away, everything that he acquired like human influence in his life, he changes for something even better, and exactly the knowledge of Christ Jesus, my Lord. Many people here will find themselves in strange waters, no matter how much they say that they know and love Christ. To lose everything so you can know Christ requires full change of everything that you once valued or sought in your life. This spiritual matter is not known to people, which have believed in Christ, but stayed always fleshy in their mind and thoughts. To know Christ means to deny and reject everything. To lose everything for Christ means to find something much better, but first you have to believe and then you’ll see it. There was a young man who also wanted to follow Jesus at all cost, but he wasn’t ready in his heart for that, because he was used to relay on what he has, not fully giving himself in His hand. “He said, “I have observed all these things from my youth up.” When Jesus heard these things, he said to him, “You still lack one thing. Sell all that you have, and distribute it to the poor. You will have treasure in heaven. Come, follow me.” But when he heard these things, he became very sad, for he was very rich.” Luke 18: 21; 23. Many people today become sad in their spirit when they hear some of the truths of the God’s word, only because they are not ready to follow it with their whole heart. Jesus didn’t want to take the assets of the rich man, but He wanted to how him how much he’s attracted to the earthly riches and advantages, which he has. For Apostle Paul there was no such option, because he already had taken decision in his heart what to do. I consider everything like scum, replacing it with this divine thing to know the power of God in my life. Yes, to know His power today the things are not different than before. If you want today to be guided by the Holy Spirit, not by emotion or fleshy passions, you must understand and surrender to Him, the Master of the Masters and the King of the Kings Jesus Christ. To know Him, however, you first have to decide, what in your life will be priority. Knowing of God and His justice according faith in Him, or again you’ll relay to the fleshy advantages, earthly riches, chasing opportunities in human ways, or just wishes for other stuff. Apostle Paul says that he already decided! I have decided for myself! What about you? I leave you to think alone for yourself and I’ll pray God to give you full understanding and revelation on this word. I wrote that today because I love you church and I truly want you to be free of burden and bounds of this world. If I can say that I wished to see more people that I meet to be dependant only by the Holy Spirit, I won’t be far away from truth. This would change the world and our ways of life we live. Do this for yourself, on first place, before going to change the world. God bless you abundantly today!

“Seeing that his divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and virtue; by which he has granted to us his precious and exceedingly great promises; that through these you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world by lust.” 2 Peter 1:3; 4

When we say divine power, we’ll always have in mind the power of the God’s Holy Spirit. It’s the same dynamic, moving power of God, which He gave to the Apostles in the day of Pentecost. That’s power for salvation, power for healing, power for miracles and last, but not least, power for preaching the Christ’s Good News. “For I am not ashamed of the Good News of Christ, for it is the power of God for salvation for everyone who believes; for the Jew first, and also for the Greek.” Romans 1:16. Apostle Paul says that God gave him strength, in which there is no shame or feat from being able to tell about the superiority of the One who send him to spread the Good News on this world. For some people the strength of the Holy Spirit will always remain unknown part in life, because they don’t find it or look for it with all their nature. There are other people that just don’t believe in it, and that’s why they completely deny it, trying to live reasonable and good life not by spirit, but flesh. Others speak about that and they want the manifestation of the Spirit for global use, but they’ll never allow God to use them, because they are strongly dependant and bonded to this world. The worldly cares mute the word within them, and from that comes the inability for God to use them with the power of miracles on this world for His glory. “For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are dying, but to us who are saved it is the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:18. Let’s say that every nation and language understands and accepts Christ in their own way. The teaching for faith is one thing, like the preaching of the gospel, but notice that every nation has its own traditions and customs, so and its own culture and identity, and that strongly affects the way of understanding the words, firstly spoken by Jesus, now told by the holy Apostles. It’s like each person wants the things to happen his own ways, and not only that, but also the searching for God happens with the understanding that God will honor each one of them with their own language and culture. Yes, but to God, things doesn’t happen exactly like that. He fills with the power of His Holy Spirit only those who truly and purposefully honor Him. “For Jews ask for signs, Greeks seek after wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified; a stumbling block to Jews, and foolishness to Greeks, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:22; 24. You read that well? For every nation, God wants to show Himself strong when the called ones accept the God’s invitation for salvation. “Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.” 1 Corinthians 1:25. Here now, that’s the explanation for God’s strength! God’s foolishness and God’s weakness, if we can actually speak about such, when we understand in front of who stand. The Apostle just wants to bring the things in this world to understanding of God’s power, using some method of comparison so he can explain in easier and more accessible for us way His dominance over the nations. If I could focus your attention partially to His Divine power, recreated in one amazing way by the Apostles, now I can tell you only that through this Divine power He gave you everything that you need to live a devout life! To all of us, through God’s power, is given too many and big promises, which we can have today so we can become participants in the divine nature. Only those that are lazy, unthankful, proud, sluggish won’t receive anything from God. Apostle Paul warns: “That you won’t be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and perseverance inherited the promises.” Hebrew 6:12. The promises of God, you can only have them when you seek the power of the Holy Spirit with full heart and you surrender to His perfect will. “For you need endurance so that, having done the will of God, you may receive the promise.” Hebrew 10:36. Resisting through faith and perseverance in His word and prayer, and the required for all of us endurance, will bring our life to place, where we can do God’s will filled with the power of the Spirit, receiving the many and precious promises of His. There is one of His promises for which I can remember now, and it is there, in the end of everything: “But, according to his promise, we look for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells.” 2 Peter 3:13. And so, be tireless participants in the divine nature my brothers and sisters, because we have power through the God’s Holy Spirit to live in the remaining for us time, but not in the flesh’s passions, which fight against us, but in the God’s will. Amen!

Hello Church, 11th July, 2013
“For he who has died has been freed from sin.” Romans 6:7
Today, on purpose, I’m starting my message with just one verse. My goal is to see it like an independent one. Let’s read the message of Apostle Paul, the one that died. You know for what exactly is spoken here. The death is the most mythical and unknown thing for the human nature. The fear from it comes because of the fear to the unknown upcoming experience. There is no human on earth that would stay indifferent when it’s about death or someone died. Our spiritual senses are filled with repulsive controversy and consistent wish for the opposite, the life. When I read in whichever message about death, my attention gets sharpened to understand what exactly God has to say about it. What does it mean to die? That is a question for which we can say that there will be never a good time to ask it to ourselves. I think that too, but like the reading of Apostle Paul tell us today to talk exactly about that. To die means to lose your life in all your fleshy senses. Death is the termination of the life processes of the living organisms. The word is used at the same time for the biological process and all the result processes, as for the philosophic conception bounded to it. There is death of flesh, and spiritual death. Actually, when Apostle Paul speaks about death, he means spiritual one. “Knowing this, that our old man was crucified with him, that the body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be in bondage to sin.” Romans 6:6. Here it’s said that to be free from the bondage of sin, there is no other way but dying. Bad news for everyone right? Our old spiritual nature must die once and for all through death similar to the Christ one. Apostle Paul says that if our old nature does not die, if it doesn’t lose completely its natural processes, it can’t be united with the resurrection of Christ, Who is actually true life. That is the reason for us to die. “For if we have become united with him in the likeness of his death, we will also be part of his resurrection;” Romans 6:5. This process of passing from death in life is a painful challenge for each one of us. “Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind; for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin;” 1 Peter 4:1. Today, many people ask themselves the question: Can I live without dying? I would say that it’s impossible, because only the one who dies to the sin lives new life in Christ. The spiritual crucifix of our life continues until our spiritual body can’t hold anymore and dies completely. “We who died to sin, how could we live in it any longer?” Romans 6:2. Apostle Paul states that we can’t go back again to bondage of death in which we are already free. It’s not possible to die and resurrect and then die again and etc. It happens to no one in this world. “Thus consider yourselves also to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:11. If you already rose from the dead via life, which Jesus gave you, you don’t die again, because you are free from the curse that brings death, and that’s the sin. Do you remember the verse with which I started the message? For he who has died has been freed from sin. The sin also has strength and power and it is in the rights of Satan. That’s his ability to kidnap, steal and kill human souls. We, alone, can’t resist the sin, because it’s impossible. Can you, for example, resist death? To say that you won’t die and that’s it? No, when the time comes for that, it will happen. The same truth is with the spiritual things. You can’t do anything alone. That’s the reason to pray and to want from the One, who already did it to help us too. The One, who has life in Him, to give us too! The One, who defeated death and hell, to do it in our life too! The One that resurrected from the dead, to resurrect us too! The One that is freedom to free us too! Halleluiah! When our old nature breaks and dies on the cross, then Jesus alone resurrects him for eternal life and you become newly created. “Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will still live, even if he dies.” John 11:25
Let’s pray for those who pass through this process of spiritual crucifix, so they can become approved after Christ fully frees them from the power of the sin.

Hello Church, 9th July 2013


Matthew 10:27; 33 “What I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear whispered in the ear, proclaim on the housetops. Don’t be afraid of those who kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul. Rather, fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in Gehenna. “Aren’t two sparrows sold for an assarion coin? Not one of them falls on the ground apart from your Father’s will, 30 but the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Therefore don’t be afraid. You are of more value than many sparrows. Everyone therefore who confesses me before men, him I will also confess before my Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies me before men, him I will also deny before my Father who is in heaven.”

Jesus called his students to give them power, guidance, lead, a way in which to go among the people of Israel, so they can preach the kingdom of God, healing each sickness, each weakness, cast out demons and resurrecting dead. Great, that sounds good. When you hear these words for you, your senses wake up. Each cell of your body tries to reflect what it feels like power and influence of His will, and suddenly your life acquires the wanted and expected direction. This emotion of the flesh and this confidence in spirit, the Word calls invocation. The Apostles were called and dressed with power, so they can do the Father’s will. When people ask me these days, why is nothing happening in their lives, I just tell them “you don’t answer to call”. Many people today are called on the table of the Lord, but few are those who decide to take action and to participate truly on it. “For many are called, but few chosen.” Matthew 22:14. So many times in which God alone spoke to you persistently for the chance to spread the word of His kingdom, but you, anyway, found many reasons to excuse your missing, and that’s a fact. Fear, insecurity, uncertainty are just a small part of the human emotion that takes dominance and actively participates in the moment of your decision and that gave direction to your life. That’s the reason many people today to not follow the right direction, in which the God’s Spirit wants to guide them, but they take the path that is even more insecure, the path of self centrism, the fear and the decisions that they take are always wrong. Jesus says that of the many invited is made a choice, and the casting is based on not how good you look like, but did you truly opened your heart to work on the God’s field. Do you want to do this with your whole heart, whole soul and whole strength? Now I’ll show you that God seeks workers for the huge field, the planet earth, on which we live. “Then he said to them, “The harvest is indeed plentiful, but the laborers are few. Pray therefore to the Lord of the harvest, that he may send out laborers into his harvest.” Luke 10:2. How many times each of us prayed responsibly from their whole heart, God to send workers to the field? How many times the churches have gathered in unity of faith, to cry out to God for that? Can you feel the need of that in our meetings or that is just responsibility of God? I’ve heard many people these days telling that they want God’s calling as well for their life, but believe me, they’ll never receive it. Do you know why? Because they seek God’s calling for their life, when there is no such. The calling from God is to be workers on His field. To do His will, to participate in His kingdom. The Apostles already understood that, and that’s why they were send by Jesus, with the given power of the Spirit of God. Only the soldiers of God are dressed with strength and power, those, who will participate in true spiritual fights. That is why it’s said: “Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” Jesus tells to the chosen by Him Apostles not to fear humans and the eternal death threats, but to protect themselves from the real threat, which will stalk them at any time, actually the threat by the one that can take your body and soul in the flames. Jesus gives final guiding to the already prepared for victorious crusade Apostles, and He guarantees them something, in which I don’t see people these days to believe, and exactly that God knows them so well, that even the hairs on their head are already counted by Him. Not a single hair can fall from them without His knowing. Halleluiah! When I think for that, I remind myself about the thousand threats, which are stalking the human kind these days on every step, but for the chosen by the Master of the universe people nothing can happen without His knowing. Jesus gives example with the sparrows, which we don’t even notice throughout the day, although they are somewhere around us. It’s said that none of the thousands falls without Father knowing about it, and what happens when God took care of you. If you lost your confidence today that you are less important for God than a sparrow, I’ll tell you for sure that this is a job of Satan in your life. Today you must call to God and say out loud, I am more valuable to God than a sparroooow! The reason today many people to suffer is that they believe more on what they see, not on what they have through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. Jesus said to the Apostles to teach everyone that each who confess Him in front of men, Jesus will confess him in front of Father, Who is in heavens! It’s just like in the barracks. Report given, report accepted. If we accept to give honor to God with our life, to love Him with the price of our whole life, the promises for that is that He will take care for us. But we see that there is something else too. Jesus say: “But whoever denies me before men, him I will also deny before my Father who is in heaven.” Jesus would deny me or you only in one condition, if we do it first. If we, who are called on the table say again “No” to God! Don’t be scared brothers and sisters to confess His name in front of the people of this world. God will always be on your side and will protect you from the true enemy, Satan, because you are His. If today He calls you, don’t harden your heart like the people of Israel did in the wilderness, and a whole generation of them died. Let us be His loyal followers, who will do His will, following Him with trust, true heart and consistency. God bless you abundantly!

Matthew 23:23: “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint, dill, and cumin, and have left undone the weightier matters of the law: justice, mercy, and faith. But you ought to have done these, and not to have left the other undone.”

Before we get to this verse, we see Jesus saying many times these words: “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!” His whole message in chapter 23 of Matthew is directed to the gathering of the scribes and Pharisees. He speaks in front of the whole nation, but His message is directed exactly to them. That is important for the things I want to say later. Let’s look at some important things, to which Jesus emphasis, giving more attention to them after He covered a big part of the life of the Pharisees and Sadducees. Let’s see for a moment what Jesus says for this old leaven: Matthew 23: “For you love the best seats in the synagogues, and the greetings in the marketplaces; For you are like hidden graves, and the men who walk over them don’t know it; For you load men with burdens that are difficult to carry, and you yourselves won’t even lift one finger to help carry those burdens; For you build the tombs of the prophets, and your fathers killed them; Because you shut up the Kingdom of Heaven against men; for you don’t enter in yourselves, neither do you allow those who are entering in to enter.” A lot of mud is gathered right? That’s what Jesus sees like things that defile the man. That is what Jesus calls sick existence, blind guidance and irresponsible attitude. But why I guide your attention today to Matthew 23:23? Well don’t you like 23:23? Just joking! Before I say these important things I think that we need a little smile on our face. Everyone thought that I will bring the thesis for the so uncomfortable and discussed and scary tithe. I wouldn’t say that this is more important for me than other thing, which Jesus wanted these men to hear. Look, if you ask me, for me would be an honor to give tithe from everything that I acquire, not only from my finances, but from my whole life. I’m inspiring you to do that. Today, for me, giving just a tithe for the Good News is something too small, so I decided to be much more generous than ever. God has shown Himself so merciful, righteous and trustworthy to me and my whole family, so there is no way for me not to be limitlessly thankful. With two words I will give you a very good advice. Start giving all the time more than just tithe and you will hit in your life Satan pretty hard. Start giving more and you will never enter in dispute with someone about should you give or not! That’s a really good advice! If you do something to become a part of the Good News of the Christ on this earth, then be more motivated than you were before. After Jesus alone said not to neglect what they already do, because it’s good, He focuses on something far more important: Justice, mercy and trueness. He said to them: If you do not judge righteously, woe to you; If you do not show mercy, woe to you. If you do not show yourself true, woe to you. That’s a problem today not only in the national Assembly, but also in the church. Here’s what Jesus says about this question: “Don’t judge, and you won’t be judged. Don’t condemn, and you won’t be condemned. Set free, and you will be set free.” Luke 6:37. This method is a part of the God’s kingdom of righteousness. I said method not accidently, because the Word is given to be performed, not just to be heard. When it’s said about mercy in the Bible, there are too many verses and messages for that, but I think for one said by Jesus that gives summary of all others: “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.” Matthew 5:7. It’s a pretty good strategy, when you start arranging your Christian life. Very recently, a person asked me. What I must do, to get back to God? I said to him that on first place the Word says to us to repent for our sins. He said: That’s very hard for me. I told him: You do not love Christ, that’s why it’s hard for you. You are looking for opportunity that He can give to you and what He would do for you, but you are not looking for Him. That’s offensive attitude. Jesus wants our heart before we start asking from Him to deal with our life. We are used to only beg, but not to give. I know such people and they call them beggars. You truly want Jesus in your life? Then get closer to Him with Spirit and truth and bow down to Him with your whole life. Seek His kingdom and His justice and everything else will be given to you. “But seek first God’s Kingdom, and his righteousness; and all these things will be given to you as well.” Matthew 6:33. And for a finally I must say something about faithfulness. That’s the most difficult part if you don’t have God in your heart every day. That’s why it’s needed for you to die every day, so you can allow Jesus to rule your life through the given to us Holy Spirit. The faithfulness is a part of the fruit, which you must have inside, when you are filled with the Holy Spirit. “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith,” Galatians 5:22. Now tell me isn’t that easy, if you have in your life justice, kindness and faith and to be a devoted and responsible person? All that Jesus talks about is said over and over for our inspiration. I bless you today church and my hope is for your walking with Jesus to be worthy.

 “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which will be revealed toward us.” Romans 8:18

Apostle Paul states that everything we pass through in our life is not worthy to compare with what is about to be revealed by God to us. When we speak about temporary sufferings, we must first read what the Apostle means. He says that the Holy Spirit reveals, gives understanding, that when he goes to Jerusalem, jail and suffering awaits him. Everything that we read later is that the Apostle doesn’t care for what happens. Today, we suffer for must lesser things, even if it’s not related to our body. Yesterday for example, I saw that some malicious person scratched my car with a sharp object. In the first moment I was really angry, but then I said to myself: No biggie, just a car. After all, we preach the Good News of the Lord Jesus Christ. Why do I care so much? If the Apostle says that for his own body, it’s so small today for us to say that for something that is not even in the body. If today we bear the destitution because of God, or some temporary sufferings, that will be only for our joy, knowing that others bear a lot more than us. “Except that the Holy Spirit testifies in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions wait for me. But these things don’t count; nor do I hold my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to fully testify to the Good News of the grace of God.” Acts 20:23; 24. If God has given to you a vision, purpose, mission, ministry, what bigger joy of that today to walk surely with Jesus to do the God’s will till the end. The prize which comes to be revealed to you is really big. Jesus was destined by the Holy Spirit that He will endure sufferings when He gets to Jerusalem. “From that time, Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things from the elders, chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and the third day be raised up.” Matthew 16:21. Today I hear unbelievable testaments for that how God revealed this and that to different saints. Testaments for big blessings or great ministries that will come, but recently I haven’t heard someone to say that God revealed to him that soon he’ll go somewhere and will suffer by that. Did the Holy Spirit changed His strategy of work, and do we deserve to be more tolerated by Him than Jesus Christ, or those men and women of faith, lived and suffered more before us? I know that God hasn’t changed, but something different has, and we must understand this alone. It’s real revelation to know that you walk with Jesus and do His will. “But because you are partakers of Christ’s sufferings, rejoice; that at the revelation of his glory you also may rejoice with exceeding joy.” 1 Peter 4:13. Now that’s something great, when you understand, that when you suffer, you become at least a little partaker with the Christ’s sufferings, so you can be fully happy when He reveals Himself to you, the prize of your confidence, faith and dedication. I still hear the words of Apostle Paul: “nor do I hold my life dear to myself”. I truly want to reach that level of confidence in my life as well, to care about nothing and to give each day of my life to Jesus. He is a gift for me from God, so I should not scant for Him. I should give my body in a holy and live sacrifice, acceptable to God like my spiritual ministry for Him. To share my life with everyone so they can know Him, the Creator of everything visible and invisible. It’s amazing to be free from fear, sin, death and God gives you this confidence for the upcoming glory that is about to be revealed to you. Jesus is worthy! What would you do today brothers and sisters if you see Jesus glorified on this earth? How much can God count on you, that you are already partakers with Christ and the old person in you is already dead? Can God trust you today for the deed of ministry like He did for His holy Apostles? I think that He can! Today there are also men and women that don’t think only for themselves and their home. Today God sees people ready to suffer, if they have to, so they can walk in the way and preach the Good News of eternal life. Nothing has changed today, nor God or His will or the Holy Spirit or the people that He rises for His glory. Only the time is different. It’s 21st century!

Hello Church, 1th April 2013

John 8:42-44 42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me. 43 Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. 44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

As you know, the world loves holidays, which it makes up and gets ready for with great care. April fool’s day or the day of lies as we used to know it, is one of them. It is celebrated in different countries all over the world on the 1st of April every year. April fool’s day is not an official holiday, but it has gained popularity and is celebrated as a day, when many people make jokes and tell funny nonsense to their friends and family, teachers, neighbors and colleagues.  If you look at it critically, nonsense or lies – what’s the difference? Jesus talks to those who gathered and tells them, that if they really knew God, they would know that He was His son and love Him for it. Notice what He asks them: Why is my language not clear to you? Why don’t you get what I’m saying? Jesus is wondering at their behavior and ignorance and inability to hear and believe the truth. More than once He tells them: “verily, verily I say unto you”, but this does not reach their ears, which are dulled from listening to too many made up stories and fables. Apostle Paul teaches Timothy: But refuse profane and old wives’ fables.” 1 Timothy 4:7. Apostle Peter says in 2 Peter 1:16 “For we did not follow cunningly devised fables, when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. ” Jesus told the Israelites who were arguing with Him, that truly their ears were used to listening to lies after lies and that’s why they cannot accept the truth. Since they say they are Abraham’s progeny and they have had their faith long before He has come, who He to tell them these lies is. Jesus answers them, without feeling awkward, that they are satan’s sons and not God’s, as they think. He also tells them, that they have already believed satan’s lies and act and speak just like him. Jesus says that the devil is the father of lies and that is the first sign, which you can use to recognize him. What satan failed at, was continuously standing in the Truth. Even people today wish to want to carry out their father’s desires. People are not afraid of the lie, nor do they go around it, even more, they use it, to carry out their dreams or to succeed in this world. Everything that stands on lies in this world is from the devil, but the Bible teaches us, that it will eventually fall. The firm ground in my and your life is “THE TRUTH” that sets us free from the kingdom of darkness. Jesus says, that when satan speaks a lie, he does it through his own men. Pay attention to whom today loves the lie and who uses is most successfully and do not wonder if this person is satan’s – that is what Jesus has taught us. Today we see lies in the Church, leaders who lie, brothers and sisters, who lie, lies, lies, lies and still we don’t have the courage to call it by its true name. We agree with everything just so we could keep our peace. That is not Christian, nor is it healthy, but also not right in the Lord’s eyes. Some people with just a joke on their mind start a crazy lying competition, just so they would celebrate their father’s day – satan. I am sure that we won’t see anything new today. Some people are so used to lying, that they will easily slip into the holiday spirit. What should we say about the TRUTH, that Jesus Christ got raised from the dead? Does the Christian world really believe in this, or did it create its own reliable religion, which it likes to follow? Apostle Paul ordered his young disciple to never walk away from the path of the truth: “I command you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at his appearing and his Kingdom: 2 preach the word; be urgent in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with all patience and teaching. 3 For the time will come when they will not listen to the sound doctrine, but, having itching ears, will heap up for themselves teachers after their own lusts; 4 and will turn away their ears from the truth, and turn aside to fables.” 2 Timothy 4:1-4. Well the time has come! The truth that has been preached for centuries by God’s saints is no longer interesting and people are looking for teachers, who will whisper in their ear what they want to hear.  This is the time of the antichrist, in which the devil himself will sit comfortably in church and will blaspheme making people speak lies, but first of all, give up the righteous path. The church is the body of Christ and in itself it has no lie neither on April the 1st, nor on the 1st of May. “Therefore putting away falsehood, speak truth each one with his neighbor. For we are members of one another.” Ephesians 4:25 Amin!

I bless you, church, in the name of Jesus and we thank you all for your care in prayer and love, church you showed for us during the past week.

With lots of love,

Pastor Vasil Petrov


Hello Church, 22 th March 2013

Luke 19:5; 10 “When Jesus came to the place, he looked up and saw him, and said to him, “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down, for today I must stay at your house.” He hurried, came down, and received him joyfully. When they saw it, they all murmured, saying, “He has gone in to lodge with a man who is a sinner.” Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Behold, Lord, half of my goods I give to the poor. If I have wrongfully exacted anything of anyone, I restore four times as much.” Jesus said to him, “Today, salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save that which was lost.”

The story for the meeting of Jesus with Zacchaeus is impressive with the thing that a whole house got saved for the God’s glory. How many of you would be happy about this great deed? But, how many of them were not happy for what actually happened? Let’s see! Let’s recreate the story in our days. Imagine that Jesus has come to the place where you live and many people are coming to see Him in the city’s center. I, personally, can imagine that, because every year in our city, in May, they are doing a carnival of the humor and there are people coming from all around Europe, so they can show their sense of humor. At these times there are so many people that you can’t even walk to the streets, or even to see something if you haven’t took good position earlier. When there’s crowd of people, you just peak, and whatever you see that’s it. It was the same when Jesus was passing through Jericho. Today, the city has around 20 thousand people and it is located east of Jerusalem, in the valley of river Jordan. I was thinking that, I have fairly good size – around 180 cm, would be hard for me to see whatever, when there were so many people in front of me. Now I can understand the wish of this small sized man, Zacchaeus, to do whatever, so he can see Jesus. What would you do, so you can see Jesus is such moment? I think that everyone said: Everything! Yes, and Zacchaeus did everything possible, so he can see the crossing Jesus, and that’s why he climbed up on sycamore tree nearby. I’ve never climbed up on sycamore tree and I can’t say if only short people can climb or it can handle quite big and heavy man. Same in Bulgaria, not everyone can climb up on a cherry tree, because the branches can’t handle heavy people, I’ve tried already. I will tell you only one thing. The wish to overcome the crowd is the thing that makes you do something truly different, even if it makes you funny in the eyes of others. Everything depends on how strong is your wish. Notice the other side. Jesus was passing and the people were not stopping to push Him and talk to Him. Each of them wanted His attention, but He continued to walk with His students. But one thing stopped Him. At the moment He looked at the sycamore tree He met the looks of a very curious short man, who was trying in anyways to hold for that tree, so he can see everything that happens. That was the chief tax collector, very rich man, and he, alone, had no hope that Jesus would give him some attention today. Notice that the crowd did one same thing, pushing Jesus and each expected his miracle, while this man desperately hung on the branch of the tree, hoping only to see Him with his eyes. We understand from the scriptures that Jesus went to him and told him that tonight He’ll be his guest. Zacchaeus jumped with joy and he hurried to show his true hospitality. But now, we go to the place where the Holy Spirit today got my attention. Everyone that were on this place got angry and the holyday mood ended. Everyone thought that they had better places, in front, and after they push each other in the crowd will get what they want, but after seeing the choice of Jesus to go in the house in the one that stole from them, their attitude and sober thinking drastically changed. I think that people always wait only one thing, and Jesus does the things in completely different way. Would be the right thing for Jesus to go in the houses of the nicest and good people that were there, so He can preach the teaching of the kingdom, but no, He chose the most inappropriate man. After He got criticized about His choice, the people went back to their houses, and Zacchaeus was the happiest and surprised man on this event. Just from the joy of being in the presence of Jesus, his heart became to change. He repented, and his repentance was accompanied by deeds. That is what I think Jesus saw when He looked at the sycamore tree. Not a rich man, to which He can go, but a poor soul needing salvation. The salvation of this house was the most important event in this day, and like we can see it sits for centuries in the history, giving us example. Sometimes I think that the bigger part of the believers already think that they are sitting in the first row in the God’s kingdom and the things for them are all set up, while there are people that sit around us and seek salvation for their houses. I think that sometimes we are interfering with the people to meet Jesus instead of helping them for that to happen. Can we do a place for the salvation for those to which Jesus wants to go? I personally learned my lesson and I won’t rebuke, I’ll be happy with those that get saved. Amen! How about you?

Wonderful and full of grace day for everyone!

Ezekiel 14:7; 8 “For everyone of the house of Israel, or of the strangers who live in Israel, who separates himself from me, and takes his idols into his heart, and puts the stumbling block of his iniquity before his face, and comes to the prophet to inquire for himself of me; I Yahweh will answer him by myself: and I will set my face against that man, and will make him an astonishment, for a sign and a proverb, and I will cut him off from among my people; and you shall know that I am Yahweh.”

Ezekiel’s prophesy, of course is guided to the people of Israel but also in God’s eyesight are the ones that are strangers there. We, like believers of the New Testament, always take in mind the words, which are addressed to us accordingly to the New Testament for instruction, encouragement, rebuke, and edify. And after all we can’t split God to Old Testament and New Testament. The heart of God is not changing, and there is no volatility. He is the creator of all, artist. Everything is through Him, and everything unites through Him. “, in whom we have our redemption, the forgiveness of our sins; who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in the heavens and on the earth, things visible and things invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things have been created through him, and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things are held together.” Colossians 1:14; 17. We must know that God never goes away and never leaves us. Those, who usually do that, are the people. With their volatility and fleshy attitude, the things are going in the wrong direction. Here’s what I have in mind. If a person takes his idols into his heart instead of God, and puts the stumbling block of his iniquity before his face, he’ll become stranger to God. Apostle Peter writes in his message that pleading plea: “Beloved, I beg you as foreigners and pilgrims, to abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;” 1 Peter 2:11. Notice what is expected from us to be today like believers of the New Testament, foreigners and pilgrims of the world, but not strangers to God. Apostle Paul reminds to all those who are not citizens of Israel, the ones that are not direct descendants of the testaments promises, to feel not like strangers to God, because He hugged the world through the hands of Jesus Christ. “Therefore remember that once you, the Gentiles in the flesh, who are called “uncircumcision” by that which is called “circumcision”, (in the flesh, made by hands); that you were at that time separate from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of the promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off are made near in the blood of Christ.” Ephesians 2:11; 13. Today, we are blessed by the fact, that the curtain that separated the people from God is gone with the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Today we have direct contact with God through Jesus Christ, our Lord and the Holy Spirit, which is the Spirit of truth and Spirit of adoption. We don’t need extra stuff, things and practices of the Old Testament, so we can get God’s attention. Each extra thing in our life except the spilled blood of Jesus Christ, with which we try to reach God, becomes our idol. When we let the iniquity to become a stumbling block for us, we are already very close to a total failure. The worse thing that can happen for you today is to become stranger to God, or foreigner. Jesus said: “Because iniquity will be multiplied, the love of many will grow cold.” Matthew 24:12. Here’s this stumbling block, for which Ezekiel talks in the Old Testament. In the final time, clearly, this will be the main weapon, lie and approach of the Satan for the believers of the New Testament. The love which God showed to the world giving His only Son Jesus Christ, for the saving of all, believed in Him, Satan will want to take away from the hearts of the believers and to make them cold and mean one to another and to God. The fight of the believers today is to keep their hearts believing, clean and to have pure love one to another. Those, who already became ridiculous, have jumped over the border of God’s patience. They have given their heart to idols, but not to God. Who is the master of your heart today? Who runs it? Idol or God? The Bible teaches us that it’s needed each of us to test himself! I do that accordingly the new word, and the reason for that is, because I love Jesus more than my life. I believe that your love, dear brothers and sisters, is in your hearts and become stronger with each day that passes. “Examine your own selves, whether you are in the faith. Test your own selves. Or don’t you know as to your own selves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you are disqualified.” 2 Corinthians 13:5

Have a wonderful day and believe in God!

John 6:37; 40 “All those whom the Father gives me will come to me. He who comes to me I will in no way throw out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me. This is the will of my Father who sent me, that of all he has given to me I should lose nothing, but should raise him up at the last day. This is the will of the one who sent me, that everyone who sees the Son, and believes in him, should have eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”

Isn’t it wonderful to know that Father brought you in the fold of Jesus, only to be one of those that will inherit eternal life after you get resurrected in the final day? It’s undeniable fact that nobody comes to Father, but through the Son Jesus. “You didn’t choose me, but I chose you, and appointed you, that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain; that whatever you will ask of the Father in my name, he may give it to you.” John 15:16. Jesus says that He won’t return or cast out anyone of those who follow the call of their heart and truly want to join the kingdom of God. The reason He does that is because that’s God’s will. When we speak about Jesus Christ, we have the knowledge of who He is accordingly to the writings. Amen! When Jesus spoke to the Jews for the eternal life, He told them: “You search the Scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and these are they which testify about me.” John 5:39. Only in the writings we can understand exactly: Who is Jesus? What is the plan of God for salvation of the humanity? What is the God’s will for us? That’s the God’s will accordingly to the writings, none that comes to Jesus to be lost, but to be raised in the final day. Each, who sees the Son, accordingly to the writings, and believes in Him will have eternal life. Have you ever thought that Jesus could fail and not to fulfill God’s will to the end? That it is still possible for Him to fail in the salvation of human souls? That He doesn’t love you? That one day He can reject you? If such thoughts have attacked your mind, I must tell you that they are by Satan. Don’t listen to his nonsense. You must resist these thoughts trough confession of the God’s word, which is truth by itself. “For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,” 1 Corinthians 15:3; 4. Never listen and agree with thoughts which are outside the scripture. God’s will is given by the scriptures, so can the world know God. Jesus said something more for that: “For whoever does the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.” Mark 3:35. These are not just words, but truth, that comes from the heart of Jesus. He says that if you believed in Him and do the will of the Father accordingly to the writings, you are already His family. Truly, that is a stunning thing to know that God loves you and He have you like a part from the big worldly family, which will inherit eternal life. That’s why Apostle Paul says in his message to Romans: “Don’t be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what is the good, well-pleasing, and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:2. Today, we live in 21st century, and that word still inspiring and challenging to us to seek knowledge of God, which will reveal in us the whole will of God for our life, and we, without fear, will walk sober in the salvation given to us through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Do you think that Jesus would lose a battle and would deliver someone so easy in His hand? Do you think that someone can take away from Jesus everything that legally belongs to Him, and given to Him by Father? At least I don’t believe in that, and the word says something that will really give you confidence for every day that comes. “I give eternal life to them. They will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all. No one is able to snatch them out of my Father’s hand.” John 10:28; 29. Oho, I have good news for every one of us my dear brothers and sisters. Jesus says that there is no chance the devil or demons or whatever on this world to prevent our salvation. The thing which Father gave into the hand of Jesus, the Bible states clearly, “NO ONE” is able to snatch you, remove or cast you out. You and I truly belong fully to Him. We are not slaves of the sin, or bounded prisoners, but free in Jesus Christ. Father is bigger than everyone, agree and believe in this true fact. And when He keeps something in His hand, no one can separate you from Him. That is why with the grace I have today in my heart I want to tell you these words in conclusion and I recommend you to stay in His love accordingly to the writings: “Stand firm therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and don’t be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.” Galatians 5:1. Always remember that! If you don’t leave by your own, NO ONE, absolutely NO ONE can snatch you and remove you from His love. God is love!

Hello Church, 19 th March 2013

Acts 27:9; 11 “When much time had passed and the voyage was now dangerous, because the Fast had now already gone by, Paul admonished them, and said to them, “Sirs, I perceive that the voyage will be with injury and much loss, not only of the cargo and the ship, but also of our lives.” But the centurion gave more heed to the master and to the owner of the ship than to those things which were spoken by Paul.”

They delivered Paul and some other prisoners to a centurion named Julius, of the Augustan band, because it was determined for them to sail for Italy. There were a lot of complications for the travel, and everyone reached a moment, when the death was upon them, because of upcoming storm. Apostle Paul had a vision from God that the travel will be accompanied with damage and big destruction, not only for the ship, but for their lives too. In the word it’s said that the centurion, that was responsible for taking decisions, trusted more to the master than the Paul’s words, and for us they are word from God. Do you know how many people, believers, in the redemptive deed of Jesus Christ, today continue to make this same mistake? Something, that Julius did, put not only his, but the life of all the travelers, relying on what he sees more than relying to the word given by Paul. We call it a wrong decision by a man who is supposed to make right decisions. What we are trusting today? That is the question on which we must answer: On God’s word or human’s abilities? “Confidence in someone unfaithful in time of trouble is like a bad tooth, or a lame foot.” Proverbs 25:19. I love to quote this verse, only because there is so much truth revealed in it. You can’t trust the words of people, which you can see with your eyes that they don’t know God or imitate that with a fake attitude. Yes, but although it’s written today, I see people that do it with ease. Usually I hear them saying: “That’s what brother “insert a random name” said or sister “insert a random name” said.” But is the thing that the dear brothers and sisters said is in agreement with God’s word, and do these people have the guidance of the Holy Spirit to say these things with time and without time. Can they bear responsibility for the words they said, or they are like two sided coins to flip around and deny their words when they understand that they are wrong? Can you see how many things I pointed out, testing if one word is from God or not. Do you want to hear something disturbing? “Yes, my own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, who ate bread with me, has lifted up his heel against me.” Psalms 41:9. Truly treacherously! Many people have already tasted the horror of this word, and others are yet to feel the bitterness of the friend’s betrayal. I thought that this is not going to happen to me, because I always had honesty in my relationships with my friends, but alas. Many of them betrayed me in the hardest moments of mine, the moments I expected them to be close to me. “Everyone beware of his neighbor, and don’t trust in any brother; for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbor will go about with slanders.” Jeremiah 9:4. When we think that we can have the support at least of our brothers, turns out that it’s not really sure. “Don’t trust in a neighbor. Don’t put confidence in a friend. With the woman lying in your embrace, be careful of the words of your mouth!” Micah 7:5. Oh, that’s already too much, even for us. Then, who we can trust in this world? Apostle Paul says: “Yes, we ourselves have had the sentence of death within ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God who raises the dead,” 2 Corinthians 1:9. This means that we, alone, can’t trust fully what to do in different situations and moments of our life. In this world of lies, the only one we can trust fully is only God. “Behold, God is my salvation. I will trust, and will not be afraid; for Yah, Yahweh, is my strength and song; and he has become my salvation.” Isaiah 12:2. You can trust God’s true words every day. We can believe in His trust. “Through you, will we push down our adversaries. Through your name, will we tread them under who rise up against us. For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me. But you have saved us from our adversaries, and have shamed those who hate us. In God we have made our boast all day long, we will give thanks to your name forever.” Psalms 44:5. Halleluiah! That is the answer of our question! God is our reliance, and only to Him we can fully trust. Why? Because He alone doesn’t trust anyone, and He doesn’t need ministries made by human hands. “They set God’s ark on a new cart, and brought it out of Abinadab’s house that was on the hill; and Uzzah and Ahio, the sons of Abinadab, drove the new cart. They brought it out of Abinadab’s house, which was in the hill, with God’s ark; and Ahio went before the ark. David and all the house of Israel played before Yahweh with all kinds of instruments made of cypress wood, with harps, with stringed instruments, with tambourines, with castanets, and with cymbals. When they came to the threshing floor of Nacon, Uzzah reached for God’s ark, and took hold of it; for the cattle stumbled. Yahweh’s anger burned against Uzzah; and God struck him there for his error; and he died there by God’s ark.” 2 Samuel 6:3; 7. Uzzah was struck by God in attempt to help in God’s deed! That is impossible, and God would never allow that. A person shouldn’t interfere in the deeds of God, he must only listen to Him and obey Him, entrusting to Him all his life. Be obedient to God and listen His voice church, He will keep you safe. So, do you have answer of the question: Who are you going to let controlling your ship in that stormy sea, to who you’ll trust?

Have a wonderful day, and may God bless you.

Matthew 4:13; 17 “ Leaving Nazareth, he came and lived in Capernaum, which is by the sea, in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying, “The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, toward the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles, the people who sat in darkness saw a great light, to those who sat in the region and shadow of death, to them light has dawned.” From that time, Jesus began to preach, and to say, “Repent! For the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.”

After Jesus got sunk by John in the river of Jordan He was filled with the Holy Spirit and brought by the Spirit in the wilderness, so He can be tempted by the devil. If you take a closer look and read the whole chapter you’ll see that the Holy Spirit gave strength and wisdom to Jesus to resist to every quoted word by Satan and to be victorious in His first serious battle with him in flesh. If we can trust in this same way to the God’s Holy Spirit, we’ll also have the same results. The victory over the deeds of Satan is the heavenly answer of God for the human inability to fight with the invisible under-heaven forces. “I am the vine. You are the branches. He who remains in me, and I in him, the same bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5. Jesus said that if we are separated from Him, we won’t be able to fight against the invisible creatures of darkness. Today, more than ever, the church must seek that intimately relation with Him in prayer and fast, obedience and praising like a living sacrifice to God. When it’s said that Jesus came in the lands of Capernaum, there is a word which the Holy Spirit opened my eyes for, to see. It’s said that He “came and lived”, which means for a certain period of time. That is important to understand. When we read the word we must understand that nothing happens just like that. Everything that happens on the planet earth, so and in the ministry of Jesus, was already prophesied and said in the Old Testament. We see that prophet Isaiah has already spoken through the Holy Spirit! Jesus was moving in the destiny of God throughout the whole time, in one very well planned life. So, in order for something extraordinary to happen, it must be done by God’s way, by His will and on His time. The whole equilibrium and balance of the events and extraordinary meetings are organized by the heaven. That is why the calling to the ones expecting miracle is: “I tell you, keep asking, and it will be given you. Keep seeking, and you will find. Keep knocking, and it will be opened to you.” Luke 11:9. Many times I was witness of when the Holy Spirit pushed me to go and serve on a specific place, without knowing what exactly is there or what exactly will happen. After I become obedient and submissive to God, I see that His plan to make miracles is flawless. He already has spoken in the same way to someone else to be to the exact place in the exact time and then we have a miracle. When God told me to go and pray for the sick of cancer people in Germany, I obeyed to His word. After that everyone that heard by Him to come in the meetings received their miracle and they were perfectly healed. I’ve seen this to happen all the time and I strongly believe in God’s strength and in the destiny He makes in us. I don’t believe in coincidences and I don’t give an opportunity to the devil to plant these tricks of his. There are no coincidental meetings and events, no coincidental people or acts of God. He always plans everything very well. The rest is our job. We must learn to live supernatural and fruitful life, because only then we’ll have supernatural answer of all our prayers and acts. Amen! While Jesus lived in the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, the miracles of God started to happen. It’s said that the sitting in darkness saw light. Halleluiah! Isn’t that what we wait to happen in the life of our close ones, family and friends in our country? Those who were sitting in the side of the dark shadow saw the light too. The prophetic word is in the mouth of David, who says: “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me. Your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” Psalms 23:4. Until that happens, there’s a way that must be travelled with God, so we can enter in His destiny for us, a way of obedience, patience, teaching, prudence and dedication. “Then they cried to Yahweh in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and broke away their chains. Let them praise Yahweh for his loving kindness, for his wonderful deeds to the children of men!” Psalms 107:13; 15. The action of people who are looking for God will bring to the visible results in their life. The thing which Jesus was preaching wasn’t: “Come, so I can heal and free you” NO! He started to preach the God’s kingdom and His strength like teaching the people to get closer to God with a repented heart. “Seeing it is God who said, “Light will shine out of darkness,” who has shone in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” 2 Corinthians 4:6

Blessed and happy day to everyone!

Hebrew 10:35; 39 “Therefore don’t throw away your boldness, which has a great reward. For you need endurance so that, having done the will of God, you may receive the promise. “In a very little while, he who comes will come, and will not wait. But the righteous will live by faith. If he shrinks back, my soul has no pleasure in him.” But we are not of those who shrink back to destruction, but of those who have faith to the saving of the soul.”

Do you know that your faith, boldness and patience will be rewarded and you will be rewarded for your diligence by God? If the people, believed in Jesus, know well God, they’ll know that He is always true to His promises and he never forgets to fulfill them. Abraham was an example for such faith and reliance in his God. “Besides hope, Abraham in hope believed, to the end that he might become a father of many nations, according to that which had been spoken, “So will your offspring be.” Without being weakened in faith, he didn’t consider his own body, already having been worn out, (he being about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. Yet, looking to the promise of God, he didn’t waver through unbelief, but grew strong through faith, giving glory to God, and being fully assured that what he had promised, he was also able to perform.” Romans 4:18; 21. You turn left and right and you see around you the spiritual deadness everywhere, and sometimes that’s a way for the devil to disarm you and bring your life to desperation. He’ll always try to put in your spirit of fear and unbelief, so he can remove you from the reality that is completely different. Have you ever asked yourselves the question: Why Jesus repeated this phrase all the time before a statement? “Most certainly I tell you!”, because He is Son of a True God, and not only that, but He, himself, Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. Apostle Paul in his message to the Romans says: “For you didn’t receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” Romans 8:15. Most of the people who quit in the middle of the way weren’t truly freed, but only they thought that knew Christ. The deception of Satan that there are no true believers and each can be deceived and tricked by Him is not real. If you were in a church, which is ruled by spirit of slavery and deception, think about what spirit you had within. The spirit of slavery will always bring fear in your life by confused people and will get your attention with what you have to do for the church to be approved by God. That’s a lie and false sermon, which have for a goal to make you a slave to humans. The Word tells us: “If therefore the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.” John 8:36. The truth is that we don’t have to do something to be a part of a church, but Christ did everything for us to be a church. If you are freed from the slavery of the sin and the spirit of deception and fear, and if Christ has sent His Holy Spirit, you’ll be really free. “But now, being made free from sin, and having become servants of God, you have your fruit of sanctification, and the result of eternal life.” Romans 6:22. You see that again the Apostle puts in front of us the chance to know the truth. Getting closer to God, the life of all of us will be enlightened by Him. To the Galatians, Apostle Paul recommends them to never get back in their slave thinking after we were already freed by Christ. “Stand firm therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and don’t be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.” Galatians 5:1. Yes, Abraham stayed firm in his faith and he was rewarded. Moses was faithful throughout all his days and he was rewarded. Joshua continued the deed with faith and he was rewarded. Jesus Christ was faithful to death to His Father and He was rewarded. The apostles stayed firm in the righteousness of God and they were preaching the truth in Christ and they were rewarded. Now, my dear people, is our turn to show faith and truth to God till the end, and to accept His reward accordingly to His promises. “Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the Lord’s work, because you know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 15:58. I’ll go back again in the message of Apostle Paul to the Hebrew and I’ll remind the last phrase: “but of those who have faith to the saving of the soul.” Let me tell you this! Walking backwards is only for the crabs, not for the God’s people. Going backwards is for the defeated, not for the winners! Have the Spirit of God within you, and He is not going in dying and losing people. He gave the world His only Son, so we can be freed from slavery, death and sin, and He won’t accept and tolerate the wishes and the weaknesses of humans. He wants to make you winners in Him, and He already helps you. Hold on to Him and you’ll succeed in your way. I’ll finish properly the message for today! Say that out loud with me. “But we are not of those who shrink back to destruction, but of those who have faith to the saving of the soul.” Amen! Today is time for your next victory in the name and blood of the Lord. Don’t miss this wonderful chance! We pray for your blessing church.

Ephesians 5:25; 28 “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the assembly, and gave himself up for it; that he might sanctify it, having cleansed it by the washing of water with the word, that he might present the assembly to himself gloriously, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without defect. Even so husbands also ought to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself.”

Do you love your body men? If it’s so, you have responsibility to God to love your wives in the same way! After the Apostle gives his directions to the women and what should be their attitude and honor to their men, he challenges the men to love their wives like a valuable gift in their life, and to take care of them like Christ did for the church. The comparison that Jesus does is – church and man – woman. That’s not two oppositions, but an attitude of love, thanks the differences and the way of life. We must know that the men and the women are very different, outside and inside. Today we live in a world, in which everything is perverted and enslaved by the sin. Many of the women today feel the burden and the push of the domination of men, because the men treat them and watch them just as a sexual object. The men sometimes forget that they don’t have simply robots or housewives, but living things created by God that have in themselves a wonderful soul that has need of being surrounded by love. Apostle Peter also talks about this in one of his messages: “You husbands, in the same way, live with your wives according to knowledge, giving honor to the woman, as to the weaker vessel, as being also joint heirs of the grace of life; that your prayers may not be hindered.” 1 Peter 3:7. If most of the men understand that message, they won’t be fighting in their chests and treat women around themselves as a simple need, but they would surrender themselves for them, so they can have them like partners in prayer, faith, devoted Christian life and their way of surrounding would be as to the weaker vessel. Emancipation is a releasing from the state of dependence, from prejudices and limits, and for me it is a big enemy of the society in the last centuries. It’s sad, when you see a woman seeking a way to get free of the burden of some easy thinking, selfish, mean man that calls himself like that. We should not aim to independence, just the opposite, to a relationship of love and honesty one to another. The word tells us that it’s not good for a man to be alone, when the storms of life come to him: “If a man prevails against one who is alone, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:12. With a few sentences I won’t be able to tell everything for the relationship woman and man, but I only want to help today to the men to look at the women through the sight of Jesus Christ. “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also love one another.” John 13:34. The love is mutual and it must be an honor one to another. If that warmth of the relationship starts to miss, everything starts to get destroyed slowly and surely. Showing of love one to another is responsibility and obligation of the both sides. The man must know that no matter how strong a woman is, she’ll always feels need of support and good words. A woman must understand that God created her to be a soft scent in the house and an addition to the hard nature of the man. This great combination between man and woman should’ve been something complementary, strong and beautiful. It was like that until the moment of the man’s disobedience and fall. Judge and answer to that alone. Is there something beautiful, when you see today the abomination and the twisted sick condition of the living men and women couples? The pride and the sin of the planet earth will bring the man to a place, where the animal will look more wise than the created by God’s image people. “For this reason, God gave them up to vile passions. For their women changed the natural function into that which is against nature.” Romans 1:25. Everything falls apart and changes destructively, if God is not there. There are natural things in our life in which we must walk so we can see good days and God’s blessing. The woman that doesn’t feel loved, feels threatened, confused. She will seek balance in something else, so she can ensure herself and that is why the appeal to the men’s kind is to love their women. Men, whose love is not noticed, stop showing it, and they sink in their dark world. This imbalance brings to the thousands of divorces in these times. One thing can be an engine and a good foundation of the relationship between man and woman and that’s the love. Jesus showed His love to the church by surrendering Himself for her that is what is expected by the stronger side. Love, care, look to the most precious place of the woman, and is her gentle soul. Have the right way to your woman, my dear men and you will reap good fruit after that. The women need love, security, warmth and that’s why God gave you to them. Love them and take care of them throughout all days of the year and make so that 8th March to be like the next day of the year that you’ll demonstrate your love to them. I think that I can say from the name of all men today. Women, you are part from our life and we love you so as Christ loved the church and gave Himself for her.

Have a wonderful and full with joy day!

Acts 17:10; 12 “The brothers immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Beroea. When they arrived, they went into the Jewish synagogue. Now these were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so. Many of them therefore believed; also of the prominent Greek women, and not a few men.”

Preaching the word of God in different nations and countries for years now, I saw the different way of which It is accepted among the different communities and people. In some places the people accept the kingdom of God with happy and open heart, while in other places you can meet rejection and misunderstanding. In the same way the Apostles Paul and Silas didn’t found understanding by the people of Thessalonica, even their lives were in danger, if they stayed and continued to preach the teaching. So, during the night they were quickly sent to Beroea, where the things are starting to change a lot. Beroea is located on around 80 km southeast of Thessalonica. The city belongs to Via Egnatia and a little aside from the mountain Bermion. In 2nd century is one of the four prime cities in Macedonia and by Paul’s time is big and important city. Notice that it’s only 80 km from Thessalonica and there are other people who not only start to study the writings with Paul each day, but also they start to explore them one by one without questioning them, so they can see if everything said there is true. You know, there is much that we can learn from them. What can you say about that: “with all readiness of mind”? Today in Bulgaria there is this problem not only outside of the church with the people that hear the message for God’s grace for the first time, but also inside the church’s community, which must accept with all readiness of mind  the word of God. If today, we surpassed the citizens of Thessalonica in the rejection of the God’s Son Jesus, what good is awaiting us in such nation? On what kind of future moral we’ll have our claims, and on what we’ll put our hopes for the future like a nation, if Christ is not a part from our daily aim to seek of goodness and mutual love. On first place I believe that an immediate change must happen in the spiritual life of the Christian unfeigned society, which auditory will explore the writings with all their mind, so they can know God as such. The preconceptions are the root of evil in the church today and it’s preventing the believers today to know by experience the power and the might of God. How can you propose something to someone without you being sure that this works and it’s true. Today because of the evil, hatred and twisted and perverted rivalry among the churches, the lust for power and hypocrisy, with which not a changed people, but embedded “servants” use, the moral of the church reached its end. What change is expected by servants, which doesn’t spend time with the word of God, but more with helps and 2nd hand clothes? What future development awaits us, leaving the message of peace in the hands of unrepentant people? Same as the clothes, they are 2nd hand people. Notice what it’s said: “Now these were more noble than those in Thessalonica”. If the servants today don’t read their Bibles, what is left for those who must learn and take an example from them? While the ignorance and the moral take over our streets, hatred, death and sin are a daily view, with which we get use, we can expected a miracle by God for a nation, in which the people that claim that they are righteous don’t stay in unity of faith and don’t ask for mercy by God. Can you remember how many people got saved from the cities Sodom and Gomorrah, which glory of death and debauchery still remains even today? “And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, having made them an example to those who would live ungodly; and delivered righteous Lot, who was very distressed by the lustful life of the wicked (for that righteous man dwelling among them, was tormented in his righteous soul from day to day with seeing and hearing lawless deeds): the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptation and to keep the unrighteous under punishment for the day of judgment;” 2 Peter 2:6; 9. And today I believe that wherever is God, He’ll save the righteous and will put them in safety. I want to inspire you today church to get closer to God, devoting more time in studying and exploring His word. This will bring to lasting changes in your spiritual growth and life. Fill yourself with His words daily and God knows how to renovate you and to give you new strength through His Holy Spirit. Joshua was challenged by God in the same way with the words: “This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it; for then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall have good success.” Joshua 1:8. Let this become an inseparable part of our walking with God, and to teach it to the world, in which we live, and then we’ll see God to glorify Himself in this nation like turning the hearts of the people to His kingdom of righteousness. I believe in the good success of the church today and in the saving deed of the cross. That’s the reason today to ask blessing from God for all of you, and I pray, He to make you strong in His eternal truth.

Good luck in this day and many spiritual victories through the hand of God.

Proverbs 16:24 “Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.”

Reading carefully Solomon’s proverbs this morning my attention got caught on this verse. The words which we speak every day matter a lot, although we don’t always pay attention to them. The word tells us that they will define our future. They are the only barometer, if I can say it like that, for our spiritual condition. “The good man out of his good treasure brings out good things, and the evil man out of his evil treasure brings out evil things. I tell you that every idle word that men speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” Matthew 12:35; 37. Today I don’t want to stop my attention on which words are idle and would justify us, but for those, which taste like honey. Accordingly to the great king Solomon, the pleasant or sweet words bring healing to our bones. You know that the bone system of the human is the one that keeps him straight and mobile. That’s the structure of God for movement of the human body. When do you think one body is called paralyzed? When some part of it is sick and immobilized! When the bones are broken, the whole body collapses. God has built the church today with foundation of His true word. Jesus says: “It is the spirit who gives life. The flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and are life.” John 6:63. The pleasant words which we speak one to another in the church, that is the body of Christ, will keep our body healthy. The good words will give life to everyone and the structure which keep us is in unity of faith won’t be disturbed. Apostle Paul says in his message to Corinthians: “If I speak with the languages of men and of angels, but don’t have love, I have become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal.” 1 Corinthians 13:1. Here the Apostle says to us that our words must have taste of love, otherwise they are useless. There’s big strength, which God put in our mouth, and we like believers must teach ourselves how to use it for His glory. “If you remain in me, and my words remain in you, you will ask whatever you desire, and it will be done for you.” John 15:7. Jesus says that we can get everything we want in prayer, if we teach ourselves to appreciate the word of His grace. If His words have become an inseparable part of our life and we have fused with them, the Word spoken by Him will have healing act in our life. “The voice which I heard from heaven, again speaking with me, said, “Go, take the book which is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and on the land.” I went to the angel, telling him to give me the little book. He said to me, “Take it, and eat it up. It will make your stomach bitter, but in your mouth it will be as sweet as honey.” I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up. It was as sweet as honey in my mouth. When I had eaten it, my stomach was made bitter.” Revelation 10:8; 10. Here is told for that prophetic word, which the believers of the New Testament must share with this world. When you receive a revelation for the words of Jesus to this world, they are words, calling and summoning the humanity to eternal life. “Every Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness,” 2 Timothy 3:16. When we foretell the word of the truth or we preach the Good News, it will be in our mouth sweet as honey for those who hear it, but sometimes it will be bitter in our spiritual home, because it will reproof ourselves too. The words are important thing in the life of the believing man, and they really are the defying factor of his life. Be like adult people, who are taught wisdom and knowledge by God and use His word like a result of your healthy Christian life. “But I say, didn’t they hear? Yes, most certainly, “Their sound went out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.” Romans 10:18. Today that word is already a fact. Can you see how that prophecy is fulfilled and the words we speak and write get to all points of the earth? Our responsibility today is bigger than ever. God gave to us the time in which everything we say can reach every single person on the face of the earth, and that’s our chance to glorify Him. Good advice today for all believers is to get filled with word by God and to give it to this world. Have they told you in school: “You must eat this lesson”? Your teachers meant for you to remember it, which shows you how important was that lesson. Today we can say the same for the whole sermon of God. Accepting each day of it, it will start to give fruit in our life, bringing health and healing for our spirit, soul and body. “My son, attend to my words. Turn your ear to my sayings. Let them not depart from your eyes. Keep them in the center of your heart. For they are life to those who find them, and health to their whole body.” Proverbs 4:20; 22.

May God of peace be with you!

Titus 2:11; 14 “For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, instructing us to the intent that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we would live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world; looking for the blessed hope and appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ; who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify for himself a people for his own possession, zealous for good works.”

Very strong message, showing the strength of the God’s saving grace, not only in the past, not only in the present, but in the future world too. The words spoken by Apostle Paul under the direct guidance of the Holy Spirit give the necessary for us specific, but exactly that the word is send “to all men”. To all men are not words in vain, but this word really has a clear meaning. Very often the believing people were challenged to believe that they are much more special than everybody else, because they were chosen by a special way by God. That’s a part from another truth shown in the bible, but when we talk about saving grace, we must know that in it, there are no limits, and it’s to all men. When we read Acts, we meet the call and the commandment of God again to all men. “The times of ignorance therefore God overlooked. But now he commands that all people everywhere should repent,” Acts 17:30. This call form the heaven have for purpose again to challenge the humanity to knowledge and to turn away from their sinful nature to that saving grace, which God gave to the world in the face of Jesus Christ. A short statement in a message to the Romans gives us a clear picture about the fall of the human race and the given opportunity about saving through the begotten of the Father, God’s son. “So then as through one trespass, all men were condemned; even so through one act of righteousness, all men were justified to life.” Romans 5:18. Again the message is send to all men, which confirms that each who comforts with the God’s will, will be saved. Let me give you one more from the many verses that claim that in God’s big heart there’s place for everybody: “Who desires all people to be saved and come to full knowledge of the truth.” 1 Timothy 2:4. Everything that depends on the heaven is done, but the question remains: Why the people refuse to reconcile and start to believe in God? The answer of this question is again an easy one, and it can be found in the next verses that we are going to look at. Let’s clarify this that God’s saving grace: “Instructing us to the intent that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we would live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world;” The big problem of the people in this world is the teaching of Christ, not He, Himself. We see people with ease going to Jesus in religious churches, connected with worldly traditions and customs and everything which they do is one big show off. Some of them are really seeking a way to get free from the burden of the sin, but without success, because the only way to accept that saving grace is repentance through faith in Jesus. The teaching, which Jesus preaches is the God’s answer to the humanity for all times. The saving grace is teaching, not just a gift from God. It is something with which you and I must agree, so we can make Jesus the Master of our life. The spirit of the impurity and the worlds passions described like whole are things, which must be left in the past for each who decided to follow God. The next moment is to live understandable, righteously and devoutly. I would say that I’ve seen too little people, who would wish that with their whole heart. Of course that should not make us sad, because you and I already chose to walk in this direction, and that’s really exciting to know that you are one from the little dared to rise up against the sin with your whole life. “That you no longer should live the rest of your time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.” 1 Peter 4:2. It is not easy, the people in this world do not understand what it takes, and it’s not possible for them to understand. The same problem had Jesus, the Apostles, their students and everyone that accepted the faith in God like a way of life. “(for that righteous man dwelling among them, was tormented in his righteous soul from day to day with seeing and hearing lawless deeds):” 2 Peter 2:8. Lot is one of the righteous witnesses of God, he was living like that and he saved his righteous soul through obedience. The saving grace is for everyone who accepts is while they are alive on this earth. It will teach us to live pleasing life to God, so we can wait the glorious revealing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ. For Jesus it’s easy to clean us from our sins and to make us people, who are in His possession, zealous for good deeds. Amen! Pray everyone, I hope the understanding of the God’s saving grace to be accepted by all with their whole heart.

I bless you in the name of Jesus and I pray for all of you church to have a peaceful and quiet life in Jesus.

Acts 15:1 “Some men came down from Judea and taught the brothers, “Unless you are circumcised after the custom of Moses, you can’t be saved.”

Do you know how many fervent teachers we meet in our Christian life? Such, who want to burden the people and that’s only because they are burdened and they carry these burdens upon themselves. Today, you encounter so much more religious teachers than before, who will tell you how you can’t be saved and will put an extra burden in your life, but I doubt they’ll tell you the more important thing, how you can save yourself, which for me personally is more important. While these Judean teachers taught how hard it is to be saved, if you don’t follow the law, we see the Apostles Peter and Barnabas to roam the churches and encourage the people for the God’s calling to the Gentiles and their communication with Christ. Even the next verse tells us that there was a confrontation between the Apostles and the Pharisaic sect. The ones carry a teaching, which brings joy to people and let them to salvation, while the others give burdens and extra weight in the people lives. It’s easy to say to someone that he can’t be saved so easily, like you’re the one giving the salvation in the world, but I think that it’s more responsible to teach the people how to know the truth to be saved. Acts 15:5 “But some of the sect of the Pharisees who believed rose up, saying, “It is necessary to circumcise them, and to command them to keep the law of Moses.” Look here, it’s said that someone from the recently believed, or the first ones that turned to Jesus, Pharisees wanted from the Apostles to give this burden to the Gentiles, who are just now starting to have faith in God, to protect the customs, the commandments and the traditions of the law of Moses. The Apostles, confused by this wish, because they were more in the grace of Jesus, which was shown through the salvation, gathered with the elders to solve this matter. The devil will always try to put obstacles to stop the movement of the Holy Spirit and to kill the grace of salvation, so he can make a way for his destructive words and heresies. “When there had been much discussion, Peter rose up and said to them, “Brothers, you know that a good while ago God made a choice among you, that by my mouth the nations should hear the word of the Good News, and believe. God, who knows the heart, testified about them, giving them the Holy Spirit, just like he did to us. He made no distinction between us and them, cleansing their hearts by faith. Now therefore why do you tempt God, that you should put a yoke on the neck of the disciples which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear? But we believe that we are saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus,  just as they are.” All the multitude kept silence, and they listened to Barnabas and Paul reporting what signs and wonders God had done among the nations through them.” Acts 15:7; 12. In that statement, Apostle Paul testifies what he saw, and not what he heard, in which there is a big difference and strength. He testifies for that how God gave the Holy Spirit to the Gentiles too, and they accepted by faith the salvation of Jesus. It’s very important to note something in his statement that God is not making difference between them and the Gentiles. That is what he saw and he witnessed, this is a true messenger of God. Pure hearts by faith, that’s how Apostle Peter calls the salvation. If you have pure heart, with the reason that you believed in the resurrecting strength of Jesus and you accepted the promised Holy Spirit, you must be truly confident and calm that you are saved by God. The faith which the Apostle shares is that everyone will be saved by faith in the Son of God, not by imposition of limits and obstacles to this grace. When you pass and bless the grace, which fills your heart with joy for your salvation, none shall be able to confuse or harm you with humanly remarks and false teachings. Stay strong in your faith and in this grace is the world of Apostle Peter: “Through Silvanus, our faithful brother, as I consider him, I have written to you briefly, exhorting, and testifying that this is the true grace of God in which you stand.” 1 Peter 5:12 Amen!

God bless and this day of your life, because that’s one new page of life of faith, which God will write through you and will glorify His begotten Son Jesus, doing miracles and signs, so He can be glorified.

With much love to the whole Christ church, I love you deeply form heart.

1 John 2:20; 21 “You have an anointing from the Holy One, and you all have knowledge. I have not written to you because you don’t know the truth, but because you know it, and because no lie is of the truth.”

In this message, John fervently writes to the church, speaking and opposing almost the whole time truth and lie, sin and justice, light and darkness, the world and its lusts and holiness to God. He says that he writes this message not because they don’t know the truth, but exactly the opposite, because they are anointed by God, and they have all the knowledge. Interesting right? Does the church have today the anointing of God to have the knowledge of justice, holiness and truth? Definitely, I believe it’s like that. When a man realizes the whole truth, and walks in it, it means that he wears on him the anointing of the Holy Spirit. It’s not enough only to know the truth, but you must walk in it. When we look at Jesus we’ll see that He knew and loved the scriptures since He was child: “When they didn’t find him, they returned to Jerusalem, looking for him. After three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the middle of the teachers, both listening to them, and asking them questions. All who heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers.” Luke 2:45; 47. At this young age, Jesus was seeking lessons, wisdom and communion. The anointing was pushing Him to knowledge for God. That’s why the Apostle quotes: “You have loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows.” Hebrew 1:9. Notice that we meet again the word “anointing”. When we talk about the anointing of the New Testament to the church by the Holy Spirit, we’ll see again and again to be spoken about hatred to the sin and lawlessness, walking and staying in the truth. Remember well that there is no anointing in a man who speaks lies by himself. There is no anointing in someone who doesn’t love the truth. See when the anointing on Jesus starts to work: “The Lord Yahweh’s Spirit is on me; because Yahweh has anointed me to preach good news to the humble. He has sent me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to those who are bound; to proclaim the year of Yahweh’s favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn; to provide for those who mourn in Zion, to give to them a garland for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of Yahweh, that he may be glorified.” Isaiah 61:1; 3. Jesus states clearly in the temple that the Holy Spirit of God is upon Him and He wears this anointing on Himself. I think that the Christ’s church, which is filled with the Holy Spirit of God today, must be more than confident in what she does, because she wears that anointing. The anointing is to walk in truth, and that’s not easy at all, all the time. It’s one thing to love the truth, completely different to stay in it. Jesus says that the devil failed exactly in this, and those who follow his deeds won’t have different story. “You are of your father, the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and doesn’t stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks on his own; for he is a liar, and its father.” John 8:44. Turns out that before falling in sin, the devil knew the truth, but after that he failed to stay in it. The important thing is not just to be anointed by God, but to follow His path, and stay in the truth till the end. “As for you, the anointing which you received from him remains in you, and you don’t need for anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is no lie, and even as it taught you, you will remain in him.” 1 John 2:27. If you do everything that the Holy Spirit teaches us, you won’t fall into crisis, nor desperation, nor you’ll have fear of failing or deceive. The anointing of God teaches you to everything: “It will happen in that day, that his burden will depart from off your shoulder, and his yoke from off your neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing oil.” Isaiah 10:27.Yes, that’s exactly the Sermon I had in mind! The anointing must destroy the yoke that suppresses you day after day. The burden you bear will be lifted of your shoulder and you will rest in God’s peace. “Come to me, all you who labor and are heavily burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28. The anointing of the Holy Spirit will teach you, guide you, lead you, soothes you, it will show and teach you the true truth, which will make you free. “You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” John 8:32

May God bless the first day of this month for you. Let Him guide you and hold you in His holy hand, to show you the way of justice and let God’s peace stay upon you.

Matthew 13:47; 49 “Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a dragnet, that was cast into the sea, and gathered some fish of every kind, which, when it was filled, they drew up on the beach. They sat down, and gathered the good into containers, but the bad they threw away. So will it be in the end of the world. The angels will come and separate the wicked from among the righteous,”

Jesus always gave explanations in proverbs and He explained what exactly the Heavenly kingdom is. Do you want to know what is it to rule on heaven? Do you want to live there after you leave this body? Do you want to know about the justice of this kingdom, and to know that there is no corruption and injustice? Every other kingdom and way of management has their own disadvantages, and today when you hear with your ears for such, you tell to yourself there’s no way this thing to be clean without anything hidden, secret or made up. The fear of a man from the next fail and lie, make him to be doubtful about everything which he gets today like a form of salvation. But the failure of the humanity and his disobedience to God must not give this illusion in us that God’s kingdom got its disadvantages. We talk about kingdom of which the Master is God. He guarantees that there is no injustice there. When the creator of the earth says that we will live in justice, it means exactly that. The Scribes and the Pharisees, even the students of Jesus had the same problem with the misunderstanding of the kingdom. Here’s why again and again Jesus had to give examples from the daily life and to compare for a time the Heavenly kingdom, so the people could understand where Father guides them. One of the descriptions that Jesus gives is that with a thrown fishing net, which has good catch. Why exactly a catch is one of the pictures that He gives us like description to His kingdom? Apostle Paul says these words: “Not that I have already obtained, or am already made perfect; but I press on, if it is so that I may take hold of that for which also I was taken hold of by Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13. We can see that he feels the same net in his life. He says that he was taken hold by God! Not just attracted, but taken hold. Do you know that the meaning of the phrase “taken hold” in the English language doesn’t always mean victim. Taken hold can also be said for a person when he was saved. But no matter how you say it or what purpose you give to this phrase, it’s about being saved by God. That’s not dangerous, more like a chance in your life, which you should not waste easy. If you’re not taken hold by Christ, maybe someone else will have claims for your life. You know that the fish you get in the net is from all kind. When the fishermen go to fish with a fishing rod, they expect a specific kind of fish to be caught with special bait, but when it’s about fishing with a net, you can’t expect the same. Jesus gives exactly this fishing strategy for fish, so He can explain what the Heavens kingdom looks like. In a net, the fish will be always good and bad. The one that is good for food, and the one that must be thrown away. Jesus gives this example and says that the good fish is gathered into containers, something for which Apostle Paul speaks too: “But we have this treasure in clay vessels, that the exceeding greatness of the power may be of God, and not from ourselves.” 2 Corinthians 4:7. Actually, who are the fishes caught by God and gathered into containers: “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you. You will be witnesses to me in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the uttermost parts of the earth.” Acts 1:8. These are the people that have accepted the Holy Spirit of God and they live in His strength. They are witnesses for that He’s alive and He is Master of their life, saying with two words “He took us hold and we are His” Halleluiah! You must rejoice brother and sister that you got in the big net of God’s grace and you were gathered for salvation. The bad were also caught with the good, but because they are bad, they were thrown away.  You’ll see that many people today hear the Good News and many of them start some Christian life in some way, but very soon after that the enthusiasm fades away. That is because they don’t have a root in themselves! “They have no root in themselves, but are short-lived. When oppression or persecution arises because of the word, immediately they stumble.” Mark 4:17. The advice to the believers in Christ is: “As therefore you received Christ Jesus, the Lord, walk in him, rooted and built up in him, and established in the faith, even as you were taught, abounding in it in thanksgiving.” Colossians 2:6; 7. The perseverance is not only to accept Christ, but it’s important how you walk in Him, how you establish in Him, how you teach yourself and on what you were taught. Such people can’t fall from faith. This thing is important, because a time like this will come: “So will it be in the end of the world. The angels will come and separate the wicked from among the righteous,”. When the time comes, the Bible says to us that the angles will do their job. They won’t leave on one place righteous and sinners. Read and understand the scriptures, because it’s important where you’ll spend the eternity.

Blessed day to everybody!

Psalms 71:14; 18 “But I will always hope, and will add to all of your praise. My mouth will tell about your righteousness, and of your salvation all day, though I don’t know its full measure. I will come with the mighty acts of the Lord Yahweh. I will make mention of your righteousness, even of yours alone. God, you have taught me from my youth. Until now, I have declared your wondrous works. Yes, even when I am old and gray-haired, God, don’t forsake me, until I have declared your strength to the next generation, your might to everyone who is to come.”

The best thing that you can do in a morning when you wake up is to give glory to Jesus for everything that He’s done in your life. When you open eyes, it’s good to know that again you hope to Him and for the upcoming day. Your confidence stays in His promises and with prayer again and again you get closer to Him, prayer of gratitude and dedication, prayer of repentance by contrite heart, prayer of joy to all His promises, no matter their number. “For however many are the promises of God, in him is the “Yes.” Therefore also through him is the “Amen”, to the glory of God through us.” 2 Corinthians 1:20. Because God is true to His promises, then it depends on us to adjust to this way of life that will make God’s heart happy. Very often, we want to make someone around us happy and that’s the best thing we can do. To bring joy in the life of people not only on holidays, but throughout our whole life, with words or actions that show that goodness, which God already gave in our life. But, I think something else for the words said by this psalm teller. “Will add to all of your praise.” The wish to never stop praising Him is indicator of dedicated and healthy way of life with God. Obedience and determination, heart of appreciation, faith and gratitude will bring you to that strong and unstoppable wish to praise Him more and more. Do you know that to most people, things don’t happen like that? They are looking at life in other way, and that prevents them from getting closer to God. Very often people pray like this: “If God is truthful supplier for me, I’ll praise Him! If God heals me from this sickness, I’ll praise him! If God, if God, if God!” That’s a wrong way of thinking and very wrong standard of life. That’s not spiritual growing, more like a way down to the abyss of depression and suffering. The more you don’t understand the fact that He is God, which means Lord of everything, the more you’ll have the wrong prayer and you’ll always repeat the same mistake until the time comes when you get bored from it. Our prayer and the gratitude must be from clean and true heart. “But give for gifts to the needy those things which are within, and behold, all things will be clean to you.” Luke 11:41. When our heart is clean, there is not going to be rebuke or dissatisfaction, but gratitude. An appeal to the life of the young Timothy makes Apostle Paul, regarding the way, in which he’ll continue encouraging himself, and not falling away from the grace. “Flee from youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.” 2 Timothy 2:22. Our praise, glorification and adoration to God will continue forever. “Depart from evil, and do good. Live securely forever.” Psalms 37:27. The praising and the gratitude must become our true nature, not a life by duty. Only and only then we won’t be in danger to sink in the mud of the spiritual ignorance and to thing that God is obligated to do something for us. “And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.” Colossians 3:15. This is the understanding for the kingdom that brought us to unity in the Spirit. We are part of one body and as such we live in peace with God and the people. Awaiting His appearing, we prepare ourselves like Apostle Paul writes in his message to Timothy: “From now on, there is stored up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give to me on that day; and not to me only, but also to all those who have loved his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:8. If you love God and His appearing, if you truly believe that He’s true to everything which he promised, rise your voice today and praise Him! Let Him hears today these words from your mouth and abundant heart: “I’ll praise you more and more.” Amen!

I bless you church and we never stop giving away praise to God for all of you.

Matthew 7:6; 8 “Don’t give that which is holy to the dogs, neither throw your pearls before the pigs, lest perhaps they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces. “Ask, and it will be given you. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and it will be opened for you. For everyone who asks receives. He who seeks finds. To him who knocks it will be opened.”

An inspiring word by God, so we can walk in Him and not suffering in vain! In the long exploring of God’s word, seeking verses supporting the healing like a God’s promise, I’ve met it in most cases to be optional. A person must seek, want, search God’s ways and to stay in them, so he can succeed. “But to us, God revealed them through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.” 1 Corinthians 2:10. When we allow to God Holy Spirit to fully work in our heart without resisting His will, He will definitely make us sacred. Through the God’s word, the Bible, the Holy Spirit will guide us, inspire, promote, expose, lead and strengthen us: “For the word of God is living and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and is able to discern the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Hebrew 4:12. The heart, that’s the most innermost place of a person! His thoughts and intentions! Jesus knew the thoughts and the intentions of those who were surrounding Him, no matter if it was His students or enemies. Usually, every human wants to have his own territory and a place for personal life. That’s the place in which we rest from worldly storms and the daily stress. Our home can be this place of rest, so as for personal solitude. Our spiritual heart must be a place for rest and spiritual peace. Long story short, our thoughts will define our intentions, which from their side will bring to good and bad actions. God’s word is the answer for our spiritual condition. Given that we are having a sacred life for God, there is no way that the people separated from God will understand or accept us. In the times of Jesus there were “Jews”, God’s people and Gentile, everyone else. God decreed the people of Israel to be His holy people. When the word was preached, it was mostly between the children of Israel. Everything else was considered for unclean and profane. We meet Jesus to say that to a woman, who was not from the Israel’s kind. “Now the woman was a Greek, a Syrophoenician by race. She begged him that he would cast the demon out of her daughter. But Jesus said to her, “Let the children be filled first, for it is not appropriate to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.” But she answered him, “Yes, Lord. Yet even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.” He said to her, “For this saying, go your way. The demon has gone out of your daughter.” Mark 7:26; 29. The dogs and the swine are the image of the impurity. Later on in the scriptures we also see the great revelation, which Apostle Peter receives from God for opening the door to the Gentile people. He says: “I was in the city of Joppa praying, and in a trance I saw a vision: a certain container descending, like it was a great sheet let down from heaven by four corners. It came as far as me. When I had looked intently at it, I considered, and saw the four-footed animals of the earth, wild animals, creeping things, and birds of the sky. I also heard a voice saying to me, ‘Rise, Peter, kill and eat!’ But I said, ‘Not so, Lord, for nothing unholy or unclean has ever entered into my mouth.’ But a voice answered me the second time out of heaven, ‘What God has cleansed, don’t you call unclean.’” Acts 11:5; 9. The word of the cross with the spilled blood of Christ is priceless and holy thing. The pearls or the valuable words, which bring life to all, must not be thrown just like that with simple talking without having love, holiness and spiritual strength. When a person is not inspired, he can use the scriptures and talk from them with fear, disappointment, immaturity, and his deformed words can bring many people to fail. Such a person is dangerous not only for himself, but for the people that surround him too. When Jesus talks for that, it’s really meant not doing it. Throwing holy words to people that are not searching for them, will only make them to start to inveigh and to make fun of your faith and holy life. You should try to force that and to put yourself on this fire with an open face, without being prepared for that. The sharing of the word with people that doesn’t know God happens through humble and obedient life. Such a way of ministry is described by the Apostle even when that comes to our close ones. Our attitude, spiritual education will show our holiness and obedience to God, which we got through His word. “In the same way, wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; so that, even if any don’t obey the Word, they may be won by the behavior of their wives without a word; 2 seeing your pure behavior in fear.” 1 Peter 3:1. The next verses are easy to do: “Ask, and it will be given you. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and it will be opened for you.” God is true to His word and He will fulfill it in good and humble heart.

I love you church, have a successful day!

Romans 8:11 “But if the Spirit of him who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.”
Let me first clarify a small detail before saying whatever. The life which we live on this earth is short. Each has a period of time in which he must live his earthly way. Believer or not, poor or rich, scholar or unlearned, strong or weak, in the end all of us will have the same fate, and that’s to leave our tent for which is Apostle Peter talking: “I think it right, as long as I am in this tent, to stir you up by reminding you; knowing that the putting off of my tent comes swiftly, even as our Lord Jesus Christ made clear to me.” 2 Peter 1:13; 14. Now, that’s not the scariest thing on this world, because it will happen to all. It’s important to say what happens with a person while he’s still on this earth. Can something change this fate, destined for everyone, and to be your mortal nature consumed by life? “But when this perishable body will have become imperishable, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then what is written will happen: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” 1 Corinthians 15:54. Interestingly said! Usually, on this earth, our understanding for consuming is devastating, like the example with Jonah: “Yahweh prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah, and Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.” Jonah 1:17. I don’t have a pleasant feeling when we talk about someone being swallowed. That unpleasant feeling now is copied on this devastating condition of the human nature called death. But again, I ask the question: What are we doing today while we are on this earth? Are we wishing to continue being dead or we can allow God to revive us today? “For to this end the Good News was preached even to the dead, that they might be judged indeed as men in the flesh, but live as to God in the spirit.” 1 Peter 4:6. And here again we are back on the verse from Romans 8 that tells us: “But if the Spirit of him who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you.” That’s right! If we have the Spirit of God in us, exactly the Holy Spirit, we are already revived and we won’t taste death accordingly to the writings. The reason is that death is already consumed, i.e. destroyed. Something that was already destroyed by God, can’t work again. This is what Jesus showed when with one word He cursed the fig tree and she died immediately. When we talk about death, we like humans, always think about that hopeless condition that scares us and we don’t want to see it. But the Bible speaks for spiritual death, which is a lot worse than the fleshy death. Here’s why when it’s said that the death is destroyed it means the power of destruction in spiritual death. In Romans it’s said that the Spirit of God will revive the church, i.e. each one of us. He’ll revive our mortal body. We know very well that this body is not going to live eternal life, because God prepared new body for those who love Him. “For this perishable body must become imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality.” 1 Corinthians 15:53. Reviving of our mortal body means that we will get filled with life after the Holy Spirit comes to live in us, because He gives the life of everyone and brings the resurrection of God in our life. The same Spirit revived Jesus from the dead. “Death, where is your sting? Hades, where is your victory?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 15:55; 57. Forgiving our sins through repented heart, Jesus guides us in a victorious manifestation, which ends with triumph in heaven for everyone who follows Him accordingly the writings. “Now thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and reveals through us the sweet aroma of his knowledge in every place.” 2 Corinthians 2:14. The wish of the heaven is to see everyone believed in Christ Jesus, Savior of the human kind, revived in that body. Living church with living people, who proclaim the gospel! People testifying the great providence of the Creator in the face of Jesus Christ! “You were dead through your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh. He made you alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses,” Colossians 2:13. When our sins are forgiven, we’ll feel this freshness of the forever alive spiritual person who lives in our fleshy body. If the Spirit in you is alive! “If Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the spirit is alive because of righteousness.” Romans 8:10. Be a part from the living church of God and you’ll wear that scent inside you so well that even the world will feel the scent of God in you and it’ll be attracted by Him.
 
May God give you a successful and dynamical day full of miracles and happiness in the family.

Romans 8:5; 9 “For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For the mind of the flesh is death, but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace; because the mind of the flesh is hostile towards God; for it is not subject to God’s law, neither indeed can it be. Those who are in the flesh can’t please God. But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if it is so that the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if any man doesn’t have the Spirit of Christ, he is not his.”

Again, let’s look today the fight in us between the flesh and the Spirit. Apostle Paul claims that if the pressure for flesh wishes prevails in us and we don’t think much about what the Spirit of God wants to make in us, then we can’t be pleasure to God. God can’t use a heart which is not fully surrendered in His hand. Don’t forget the fact the God is Spirit and those who want to bow down to Him must do it with Spirit of truth. “But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such to be his worshipers.” John 4:23. Do you notice that the worshipers don’t mean only for singing of spiritual hymns and rising hands in the Sunday service? That’s one of the ways to thank God and tell Him how much you worship Him, but that’s far from everything. The action of the live-making Spirit in us or “the living in us” gives us this grace to be true worshipers. Can you be true worshiper without the Holy Spirit? Definitely not! You’ll be a fleshy worshiper and that’s not going to give results in your life. Let me give you an example. If you say that you are going to do something and then not doing it that’s definitely a lie. Do you know how many supposedly dedicated believers do that with ease without even thinking that this way they only harm themselves? The thing that their actions are not punished now, doesn’t mean that they won’t answer in front of the heaven for all the idle words they said and they didn’t act according to it. “I tell you that every idle word that men speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment.” Matthew 12:36. God is not like that, and the born from Him are not as well. “So is my word that goes out of my mouth: it will not return to me void, but it will accomplish that which I please, and it will prosper in the thing I sent it to do.” Isaiah 55:11. I, personally, believe that all people who love God want to walk in His ways. This means that they want to talk with Him, to do His deeds, to conform to His decrees. To speak like God means to reach a place, where His word becomes word that comes out of you, yourself. I’ll say it like that: The thing that comes out of your mouth to be the abiding Christ in you. “Remain in me, and I in you. As the branch can’t bear fruit by itself, unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you, unless you remain in me.” John 15:4. Here we meet again with the condition of the quoted by me first verse. “But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if it is so that the Spirit of God dwells in you.” Let me show you the difference between living and thinking that you live! All the people on the planet are alive in flesh, it’s in mind that they live, but we all know what that about. It’s one thing to be only alive, other is to live. Do you think a slave feels free to live? No! Can a free man understand what is to be slave? No! Like the full one doesn’t believe to the starving one. It’s not like he doesn’t understand him, he just doesn’t believe him, which means that he hasn’t experienced this. Ones live in slavery, while others are free. Now I want you to understand the God’s kingdom, because it’s not much different from what I said till now. Jesus said that those who are slaves of the sin can’t do God’s will. That’s why the God’s Son came, so he can free us from the slavery of the sin. “If therefore the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.” John 8:36. In the message to Corinthians it’s said that we must not go back to the slavery to humans after Christ freed us. “You were bought with a price. Don’t become bondservants of men.” 1 Corinthians 7:23. To be free is the best thing that can happen to you in this world. The price of our freedom is the blood of Jesus. Those who are in flesh, stay slaves. That can’t be changed by the fact that you say you’re free. It’s one thing to state that, other is to have it. Many people today promise you freedom, but are they free people? “Promising them liberty, while they themselves are bondservants of corruption; for a man is brought into bondage by whoever overcomes him.” 2 Peter 2:19. Not having the Christ’s Spirit means that you are separated from Him. You may have believed in Him, to say a prayer of repentance, to want to be His child, but if that decision of yours stays at that level, you’re not yet His. Your deeds must follow your words and promises. You must bow down to God with Spirit and truth. Then the abiding Christ in you will reveal the deeds of God in your life and you will become fruitful. Have faith in God and follow His ways, obeying Him completely. Then He will give you accordingly to the deeds of faith, which He sees in your life.

God bless you!

Luke 6:38 “Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will be given to you. For with the same measure you measure it will be measured back to you.”

Hello church, the giving is part from our spiritual life of obedience to God. The measure with which we give will define the faith, with which we walk in front of God. Me and my wife experienced many financial miracle and that was happening only because God taught us to give generously, without any grudge. We never felt fear from missing finances, because we can trust to God’s promises. We gave a lot for the deeds of the ministry and God showed us that He’s God of miracles. Time has come to do great deeds together, and that requires great people of faith. This week we’ll test for the first time our cooperative faith. You all know that my live shows and the recordings require necessary equipment. Yet in the beginning of the ministry, my wife and I sowed all of our money for equipment like cameras and computers, because we trusted God that we can testify and spread His word all over the earth. That’s how internet church was born, praise God. However, time passes and the equipment is getting old. The multiple repairs of the cameras and the computers showed us that the time for renewal of some no more usable things has come. In the past months I prayed to God to think about this needs and I gave all of them in His hand, because for us in a human ways, is impossible task.  Today God met me with a man, an old friend believer that I wasn’t seeing from years. He works in television on a professional level. When he heard about the needs of my ministry, he made me an amazing offer, for a full television professional camera that will cover all of our needs for the job that we must do. The camera, along with all the supplies, extra lenses and batteries is brought down to the minimum cost of 3 500 leva(1 750euro). That is literally a gift, when we speak about a camera from that class. For people that are not into this and have no idea about the real pricing of that kind of equipment I can say that a camera from that class is about from 7 000 leva(3 500euro) to 60 000leva(30 000euro). I know that this is the answer from God and I won’t wonder to take it or not. I could wait for God to make financial miracle and to pray to give me strength to buy it alone, but this time I have word for you church. God left the amount of 3 500leva, so He can make us one, so can everyone believe in the unity and strength of the body of Christ. We must cover this amount of money together like a church and we must become participants in this great deed with whatever God puts in our hearts to give. I don’t want anyone to feel obliged to do whatever, unless that obedience that God requires from us, when He speaks to our heart. In that moment, when you read this letter and pray to God, you’ll know the money with which you’ll participate, because the Holy Spirit will tell you exactly what you need to do. In a distance of a week I must pay this camera that will serve for God’s deed, and me and my wife believe that and we’ll do it in the name of Jesus. I’ll be very happy if we are not alone in this deed and I see people who believe and walk with us in faith. We want to make the best for preaching the Word and lift the name of Jesus, and I’ll not be satisfied with anything less. That in what we believe is to make a quality internet television for “Internet Church”, so we can reach the unreachable. Do you have faith? God knows our hearts! I’ll ask you, when you send an amount, to call me before you do it, so I can know that these money are specially for the camera that we buy. We’ll take them away and we’ll pay the camera with them, and we’ll testify about that like the next miracle that God makes for all of us. Let this be the first bigger step to our cooperative work in front of God. Let God covers your generosity and to give you many times more! The people from this world gather for different causes and make the impossible, so they can do it without Jesus in their life can you imagine what are we capable of through Him?

James 4:13; 15 “Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow let’s go into this city, and spend a year there, trade, and make a profit.” Whereas you don’t know what your life will be like tomorrow. For what is your life? For you are a vapor, that appears for a little time, and then vanishes away. For you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will both live, and do this or that.”

The plans of people are different, like their wishes and dreams, but we must not forget that each day of our life belongs to God. “The plans of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from Yahweh. “ Proverbs 16:1. God is the one that decides after all to seal with blessing the wishes of our heart. Do you know that while you think for good and strive to peace, there are people on this earth, which plan exactly the opposite? “Deceit is in the heart of those who plot evil, but joy comes to the promoters of peace.” Proverbs 12:20. We live in world that is divided into two. There is light and darkness in the human souls like there is in the nature. Ones think for peace and future, others are bad and plan evil, destruction with the same type of enthusiasm and determination. Each plans something in himself before taking actions, but glory to God that weighs up the hearts of the humans and holds the universe in the law of His grace, and He endures the ignorance, corruption and madness for a long time, with which the people can even only destroy themselves by the inability to create life. Everything that is created by men brings death. Look everything that surrounds us and you’ll see that no matter how useful the creation seems, made by the mind of a human, after all it causes damage and destruction for everyone. God is the creator of life and He himself is life. Everything was made by Him. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him. Without him was not anything made that has been made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men.” John 1:1; 4. Something even more! The Bible says to us in Colossians 1:16 “For by him all things were created, in the heavens and on the earth, things visible and things invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things have been created through him, and for him.” After there’s no doubt that God is the creator of life, why don’t we just allow Him to guide and lead our life through His mighty hand. The wise psalm caller cries from the bottom of his soul to God: “For in you, Yahweh, do I hope. You will answer, Lord my God.” Psalms 38:15. If our daily pray shows God that we are in waiting of Him to take control over our life, this will undoubtedly make our heart happy. Very often we don’t even think when we talk about our future. We took a decision that it belongs to us, but that’s far wrong. Each day of our life is in the hand of God and it’s best to never forget that. Our heart must say: “If the Lord wills, we will both live.” What is your life? “For what will a man give in exchange for his life?” Mark 8:37. These are questions with high difficulty on which we must have answer in us. Thinking on the Word of God we meet writings like those: “For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, and whoever will lose his life for my sake will find it.” Matthew 16:25. Jesus says these words directly, showing the human kind what exactly should be their aim and choice of our daily obedience and attitude to life. “For what will it profit a man, if he gains the whole world, and forfeits his life? Or what will a man give in exchange for his life?” Matthew 16:26. We must not forget that we are vapor that appears for a little time, and then vanishes away, and that’s why it is best to think of how to live at best each day and moment with joy in front of Him and with love to everything that He created. The care for abundant life is in the hand of God, and if we have faith and trust Him completely, He’ll take the wheel of our life from our unsure hands to hands giving life on this world. “Therefore I tell you, don’t be anxious for your life: what you will eat, or what you will drink; nor yet for your body, what you will wear. Isn’t life more than food, and the body more than clothing?” Matthew 6:25. You are more precious to God than anything He created on this earth and He wants to communicate with you. “But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Therefore don’t be afraid. You are of more value than many sparrows.” Luke 12:7. Yes! Don’t forget that you are more value …!

John 7:1; 8 “After these things, Jesus was walking in Galilee, for he wouldn’t walk in Judea, because the Jews sought to kill him. Now the feast of the Jews, the Feast of Booths, was at hand. His brothers therefore said to him, “Depart from here, and go into Judea, that your disciples also may see your works which you do. For no one does anything in secret, and himself seeks to be known openly. If you do these things, reveal yourself to the world.” For even his brothers didn’t believe in him. Jesus therefore said to them, “My time has not yet come, but your time is always ready. The world can’t hate you, but it hates me, because I testify about it, that its works are evil. You go up to the feast. I am not yet going up to this feast, because my time is not yet fulfilled.”

The Bible says to us that Jesus had four brothers: James, Joses, Simon, and Judas (Matthew 13:55). In John 7:1-10 His brothers advised him to go in Judea, so He can show His great deeds in front of his students, but the reason wasn’t because they were anxious about His ministry, but because they alone didn’t believed in Him. It was more like they held away what they did not understand. It really sounds ugly, but when even the closest ones stay away from you, people, that should be supporting you, but in fact they stay away from what you make heavy. Many people today are in similar condition. All the time I meet people, in which families one is believer and the other is not. It can even be said that they are the bigger part of the believers in Bulgaria. That’s understandable, having in mind the time and the way, in which the God’s word reached us here too. I have observed the life of many people in that condition, men or women, and I can say that they are not truly happy believers. In order to understand me correctly I’ll clarify, they have the joy of salvation and they love God with whole their heart and soul, but the lack of support in the family is a big obstacle in the home comfort. We must not forget the fact that believed in God women, especially in Bulgaria, are the majority in our churches. These are truly dedicated to God people, and they have even bigger heart for Him, because they are in a non-stop fight with demons, and they have to stand persecutions, to handle rebukes, ridicule, disbelief, anger, sadness and grief. These are the things, which the people from the believing homes can’t understand well, because they themselves don’t have such problems. These people that are a part of the Christ family need support in prayers and in special care, because the paths in which they walk have more obstacles. Glory to Jesus, because He already travelled this path and He can help the others. The Bible says: “For we don’t have a high priest who can’t be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but one who has been in all points tempted like we are, yet without sin.” Hebrews 4:15. We must understand that there was nothing in which Jesus to be not tempted. I pray and I know that these people are not left defenseless, neither those in whose homes there’s chaos because of the non-stop attacks of Satan, homes, where the pain from the misunderstanding and the discord with the God’s Will prevents the normal functioning of the family. However, there is salvation through Christ. In Him we have the understanding of each situation in our life. Jesus has answer for our life and He will help us to get bold and stand against all the challenges of the life. It’s hard for such people to be fervent participants in the gospel, because there will always be someone that will stop them, or to make them conform his actions. Jesus said to His closest ones that they won’t be hated by the world, because they don’t say to the world that its deeds are evil. Jesus said that the reason to be hated is not because he became worse than them, but because He declares that the deeds of the world are not by God. That’s the true reason that divides a home. The one believes in Jesus and his spiritual eyes are opened to God’s truths and justice, while the other partner in the family stays in darkness and for him that’s total nonsense. The thing, which Apostle Paul orders to the churches is: “But to the married I command—not I, but the Lord—that the wife not leave her husband (but if she departs, let her remain unmarried, or else be reconciled to her husband), and that the husband not leave his wife. But to the rest I—not the Lord—say, if any brother has an unbelieving wife, and she is content to live with him, let him not leave her. The woman who has an unbelieving husband, and he is content to live with her, let her not leave her husband. For the unbelieving husband is sanctified in the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified in the husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but now they are holy. Yet if the unbeliever departs, let there be separation. The brother or the sister is not under bondage in such cases, but God has called us in peace. For how do you know, wife, whether you will save your husband? Or how do you know, husband, whether you will save your wife? Only, as the Lord has distributed to each man, as God has called each, so let him walk. So I command in all the assemblies.” 1 Corinthians 7:10; 17. The message is clear! God knows the problems of this category of believed in Him people and He truly has plan for their life. How can each of them know that? How? And when God will make miracle of salvation in the whole home? Each new-born believer must live in his home with that hope and to never get weak, just the opposite, to agree with God with nothing less than victory and winning the person that you love for God. And for the singles I’ll say this! Be careful with who you gather, because the future is in front of you! It’s good when the person next to you, which whom you’ll spend the rest of your life, have the same faith and love to the One you trusted your heart. “Did he not make you one, although he had the residue of the Spirit? Why one? He sought godly offspring. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let no one deal treacherously against the wife of his youth. For I hate divorce”, says Yahweh, the God of Israel, “and him who covers his garment with violence!” says Yahweh of Armies. “Therefore take heed to your spirit, that you don’t deal treacherously.” Malachi 2:15; 16

Let’s pray to God to give us strength and wisdom of all who have unbelieving mates in their families. May God give them their hearts desires!

Matthew 24:12 “Because iniquity will be multiplied, the love of many will grow cold.”

Today, I want to assure you that every word by God is true. It’s useful for: “Every Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness,” 2 Timothy 3:16. In the scripture is revealed the righteousness, which is from God: “For in it is revealed God’s righteousness from faith to faith. As it is written, “But the righteous shall live by faith.” Romans 1:17. That’s not the human righteousness, because she can’t fulfill God’s will. When we speak about His will, we’ll understand that there are some important things, which we can’t pass with ease. Here are some of them: “In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus toward you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18. When you read the prayer with which Jesus thought His students to pray in Matthew chapter 6, you’ll notice that she doesn’t start with wanting, but with thanking. The important thing is your day to start just like that, with gratitude to God. No matter how angry you are to yourself and the people around you don’t spare God for whatever, you’ll find quick and effective recovery in the gratitude. The thankful person does the will of Father, and He alone listen the prayer of the righteous. That’s why everything that you do is useful to be preceded with words of gratitude. Let’s continue with this: 1 Thessalonians 4:3 “For this is the will of God: your sanctification”. Apostle Paul tells us that our sanctification is God’s will. It’s good then for us to strive to holiness. “According to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in sanctification of the Spirit, that you may obey Jesus Christ and be sprinkled with his blood: Grace to you and peace be multiplied.” 1 Peter 1:2. Of course that when we talk about sanctification, it can’t come in our life by itself, our sanctification is the work of the Holy Spirit in our life. To what extend we allowed that to happen in our life? To what extend we are fervent not to lose the given by God to us grace? There are many factors determining our spiritual life and we must reconcile our heart with this that is the God’s will for us. In John’s gospel we’ll read clearly that God doesn’t listen to the prayer of sinners, but if someone looks sanctification and graceful life, his prayers will be heard. “We know that God doesn’t listen to sinners, but if anyone is a worshiper of God, and does his will, he listens to him.” John 9:31. Now we can really talk. In the first verse, which I gave today, it’s said that the iniquity of the world will make the majority to grow cold in their love one to another, and not less to God. “Even as they refused to have God in their knowledge, God gave them up to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, malice; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil habits, secret slanderers, backbiters, hateful to God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, unforgiving, unmerciful;” Romans 1:28; 31. The reason for people to become eviler is that in their heart they refuse to know God. Jesus prayed with this prayer: “Righteous Father, the world hasn’t known you, but I knew you; and these knew that you sent me.” John 17:25. Today the world rejects God and His kingdom with ease, but we can also see the consequences from this unwise act. However, that’s not supposed to happen to people that were already called by God. Those, who know Him and have tasted from His love and grace in their heart: “Even as the Father has loved me, I also have loved you. Remain in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and remain in his love. I have spoken these things to you, that my joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be made full. “This is my commandment, that you love one another, even as I have loved you.” John 15:9; 12. We must never allow being cold to God’s love, which is already poured in our hearts through the Holy Spirit. We are connection, arteries, way in which this God’s love will reach the cold hearts of the people in this confused and full of hatred world. Thank God today, because he chose you between many and filled you with His love and you can love each other, because you are beloved. Amen!

Have a wonderful day and may God of peace be with every one of you church.

Luke 9:46; 48 “There arose an argument among them about which of them was the greatest. Jesus, perceiving the reasoning of their hearts, took a little child, and set him by his side, and said to them, “Whoever receives this little child in my name receives me. Whoever receives me receives him who sent me. For whoever is least among you all, this one will be great.”

It’s a fact that in the human nature is embedded this form of competing, without which the world wouldn’t be this interesting place. Everything on this earth is connected with the compete who’s better, faster, stronger, bigger, etc. In sport, music, art, work, business and school like in everything in our daily life is connected with who’s going to be in front. You see even the students of Jesus were not overlooked by that, but even they had such a dispute. After they were dressed with strength from the heavens and the power for healing the sick was given to them, they were still allowing in their hearts such thoughts of competing. “He called the twelve together, and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. He sent them out to preach God’s Kingdom and to heal the sick.” Luke 9:1; 2. The twelve just saw Jesus doing miracles. He fed with five breads and two fish five thousand men except the women and the children, and then we see Him casting out demons from a bounded boy, from which the students couldn’t cast out the spirit and they were rebuked for their unbelief. When I read all that and following my writings I’m thinking if this feeling of being always first came in  their hearts from the joy for having the power to heal sick and casting out demons or by the inability to not be able to deal with this certain case. Maybe thoughts of fear came upon them from the fact that they could get unnoticed? I wonder if they had thoughts of pride or being first like in the case with the mother of the sons of Zebedee. “Then the mother of the sons of Zebedee came to him with her sons, kneeling and asking a certain thing of him. He said to her, “What do you want?” She said to him, “Command that these, my two sons, may sit, one on your right hand, and one on your left hand, in your Kingdom.” Matthew 20:20; 21. Do you see again this form of competing, even when it’s talked about the Kingdom of Heaven, something, which nobody saw with his eyes yet? Are there thoughts in the human heart that can get again on the background and to be unnoticed? Whether this fear rises in the hearts of clearly defined souls, or he accompanies everyone in their path for a better life, no matter here on earth or watching forward in the future for eternal life? Is that good or bad? We see that Jesus didn’t scold again at his students for their thoughts. They were criticized for that they were walking in unbelief and their inability to cast out the demon, but they weren’t accused in their wish for having competition among them. There is only one correction, which Jesus had to do, and that was the way of competing of course, He had to correct the final success of it. Jesus said to his students that it’s good to have this feeling of advance to better, but the winner will be the one that succeeds to make himself a servant to everybody else. What to say for the new rules, with which everybody have to accustom and change. It’s clear that in the Kingdom of God the rules in the competition are different. Jesus said that the satisfaction from humility will be bigger honor than overtaking the others with qualities, gifts, strength and virtues! The faith, which we must have in our heart comes from listening the Christ’s word. This obedience to the words of Father will give lasting fruit and perseverance in our life. Here’s one valuable example for that. Jesus said one proverb: “But what do you think? A man had two sons, and he came to the first, and said, ‘Son, go work today in my vineyard.’ He answered, ‘I will not,’ but afterward he changed his mind, and went. He came to the second, and said the same thing. He answered, ‘I go, sir,’ but he didn’t go. Which of the two did the will of his father?” They said to him, “The first.” Jesus said to them, “Most certainly I tell you that the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering into God’s Kingdom before you.” Matthew 21:28; 31. The rivalry, that form of competing will be always here while we are on this earth. For us will be better to learn how to direct it correctly in our life, without allowing her to destroy us, but to make us more fervent, faithful, obedient and humbled before God. Each good quality and spiritual gift must be developed in our life with a purpose to serve to others. That’s what pleases the Lord. “For this is the will of God, that by well-doing you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: as free, and not using your freedom for a cloak of wickedness, but as bondservants of God.” 1 Peter 2:15; 16. God sees the things in this way, the small – big and the big – small. I leave to you do decide what you want to be! For me, I have already decided!

Good luck in this day and I trust God for you that you will be able to deal with all the challenges of the day.

1 John 3:18; 22 “My little children, let’s not love in word only, or with the tongue only, but in deed and truth. And by this we know that we are of the truth, and persuade our hearts before him, because if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things. Beloved, if our hearts don’t condemn us, we have boldness toward God; and whatever we ask, we receive from him, because we keep his commandments and do the things that are pleasing in his sight.”

You can easily guess on first sight which Christians are people on deeds and which are only just talking for deeds. The first walk surely in God and they don’t need someone to remind them all the time that they are believers, while the others just speak about Him. The confidence that the believers must have in themselves comes from the Holy Spirit, Who always reminds them who are they in Christ Jesus. The people who love in reality don’t brag with what they do, but with the One that started this reviving deed in their life. The glory and the honor fully belong to God. When we walk with confidence in Christ we know that we stay in truth. We are free from sin and we have full access to Father through Jesus, our Lord and Savior. “In whom we have boldness and access in confidence through our faith in him.” Ephesians 3:12. God is bigger than our heart and He sees and knows everything. He knows well our human nature, because He is the creator of it. God weighs our hearts and knows everything. “Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but Yahweh weighs the hearts.” Proverbs 21:2. Many people don’t leave God to reveal what there is exactly in their hearts, but they prefer to define who are they and to who they serve. The mistake is in that in many of the cases we will think that we are right depending on our point of view, watching through our own eyes and we never going to see the need from guiding and change, but in reality our heart is judging us all the time. That’s the moment in which we didn’t allow Jesus to speak the truths of His word in us, but we let the spirit of deception to tell us how right we are in everything. That’s seemingly satisfaction, which is not going to do the will of God in our life it can’t even try to do it.  This way we won’t walk confidently in Christ, but scared and uncertainly. We will pray slack, we will walk in fear, we will give our hopes in God, but we are not going to be confident in that He can deliver us at any time from all the evil in this world. If our heart is not confident, then we won’t stay in prayer and we won’t believe that we get what we want from Him. We will never be able to believe that He hears our prayers and not only that, but He has answer for them also. Oh, glory to God I see that you start to understand that your confidence comes from God. When our love to God becomes deeds from words, then our confidence accordingly to Him will be real, not fictional. Our prayers, the boldness, with which we walk in His path, will be on a totally different level. Our heart won’t judge for anything, but it will feel joy from this natural relationship, which there is between father and son. It’s important to understand that God is bigger than us and He truly knows everything. We must trust Him that even before we want from Him whatever in pray, He hears us. “And if we know that he listens to us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions which we have asked of him.” 1 John 5:15. If your heart is not judging you accordingly to the faith, the belief and the acts of love shown through your detour to people in the world, you will really be people of the prayer, people that want from Him day and night, because they know that they get what they want from Him. When you know that through your obedience and honor to God you do what is good for the Lord and they joy of the salvation will be written not only on your hearts, but also on the faces of all beloved by Him. Have you seen a somber bride that awaits her meeting in her love of her heart? Have you seen a man going to his love and on his face to be written sadness and uncertainty? No, definitely not! People that love and are beloved are happy people. You can see their smile on their faces, even if the things around them are not that good, they don’t care about the meteorological conditions, nor in what is the current time during the day or night, they are just happy together! That must be your daily walking with Jesus. The church that loves and is beloved! Smile today as well, because that’s undeniable biblical fact. “For as a young man marries a virgin, so your sons will marry you. As a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so your God will rejoice over you.” Isaiah 62:5

Blessed and full of grace day!

1 John 4:20 “If a man says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who doesn’t love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?”

You will never hear among any Christians that somebody hates someone. At least no one admits it. The knowledge for that is that we must not hate someone doesn’t make us saints. That word must be fulfilled on acts and in reality, not only on words. “My little children, let’s not love in word only, or with the tongue only, but in deed and truth.” 1 John 3:18. Many times, you’ll hear this phrase to be spoken: “God, I love You!”, “Jesus, I love You!”. The word says to us that no matter how many times you repeat on this day “God, I love you”, if you have in your heart hatred to your brother. Something more, this verse is saying that we are not liars. You know who’s the father of the lie, right? The truth is in this that firstly we know ourselves on this earth in flesh. Yes! No matter how spiritual we claim to be, we are humans in flesh. I hear the words of Apostle Paul to cry to God! “What a wretched man I am! Who will deliver me out of the body of this death?” Romans 7:24. The more you know God you’ll understand the disadvantage of the human nature and the inability to be holy and righteous outside of Him. Daily, we are meeting with people in flesh and we must pray to God while we are on this earth to gives us strength and spiritual understanding how to love people on deed. Our words won’t be used by anyone, if they are not full with love and compassion. We must teach ourselves to love people created by God, so we can have the strength to say that we love Him. Jesus gave this example like saying: “If you love me, keep my commandments.” John 14:15. The love always has the act and fruit within.  Jesus said “IF”, which means that you must check if this love is in your heart. Is this love fruit of emotions and spirituality or she comes from the act of a heart, which gives everything for the people? Jesus gives example of imitation and says, follow me in this love: “Even as the Father has loved me, I also have loved you. Remain in my love.” John 15:9. A person is not only required to love, but to stay in that tirelessly, and this is not possible to happen in this weak flesh. To love like He loves us, we need Jesus. “This is my commandment, that you love one another, even as I have loved you.” John 15:12. If God orders you something, this means that He’ll give you the strength to do it. Yes! If you want the Holy Spirit to fill you with the Christ love, He’ll do it. “But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I said to you.” John 14:26. The promise is that God will help us in our weakness to love according to His standards. If we could manage alone, we wouldn’t have needed to pray, and we wouldn’t have needed the Holy Spirit. The love of God in our hearts must be sharable one to another. Apostle Paul asks this question: “I will most gladly spend and be spent for your souls. If I love you more abundantly, am I loved the less?” 2 Corinthians 12:15. The people were asking me! What is the key for success of your ministry, even with people that you were never saw. I’ve always answered on this question simply and clearly. I love them and they know it. God’s love was shown to us and she makes us to love each other like we were beloved by Him. “By this God’s love was revealed in us, that God has sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.” 1 John 4:9. So, if you love God truly from heart, you’ll have and you’ll show this love on deed to all, and mostly to your close ones. Don’t be afraid for yourselves, because you are already beloved, and God of peace alone will fill your hearts with His love. “And hope doesn’t disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” Romans 5:5. Let me say it like that. If you love the people you see on this earth that means a lot. That means that you know God! Halleluiah! Let no hypocrisy in our love to one another let God to love through our heart. I won’t forget to tell you how much I love you church!

I bless you in the name of Jesus! Have a fruitful day.

1 John 2:1; 2 “My little children, I write these things to you so that you may not sin. If anyone sins, we have a Counselor with the Father, Jesus Christ, the righteous. And he is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for the whole world.”

Because many people are asking me: What do we do when we do sin? Here’s a short biblical advice. Of course that like a new-born believers we don’t want to do sins anymore. I remember the time when I was baptized in the Holy Spirit and I gave promise in the river that I will always follow Jesus and I won’t go back from the path that I’m now following with Him. For me it was such an exciting moment, and I was just fourteen years old. That’s the first important decision in my life, which I ever took. I remember that I felt so clean and I had the feeling that I can fly. There was no guilt in my heart, no reproach there was peace, happiness and sense of righteousness. Back then, I couldn’t understand it completely, but the God’s kingdom really came in me. “For God’s Kingdom is not eating and drinking, but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.” Romans 14:17 I believe that most of you already gone thru this path, but if you are not yet, this means that you are about to. The decision is yours! Time passes and little by little a person starts to do again old mistakes or to go back to old habits, and the reason for that is ignorance and irresponsibility to the temple of the Holy Spirit, in this case, ourselves. The other moment is that the unclean spirits that left the house now do anything possible so they can get back from where they left. They see the place clean and roam until they don’t get a new chance to take over the house again. A big percentage of the Christians today have already collided with that. Then the condition of the person really becomes seven times worse than before. It’s good for a person to never again give place to evil in his life. “Be angry, and don’t sin.” Don’t let the sun go down on your wrath, and don’t give place to the devil. Let him who stole steal no more; but rather let him labor, producing with his hands something that is good, that he may have something to give to him who has need. Let no corrupt speech proceed out of your mouth, but only what is good for building others up as the need may be, that it may give grace to those who hear. Don’t grieve the Holy Spirit of God, in whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, outcry, and slander, be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tender hearted, forgiving each other, just as God also in Christ forgave you.” Ephesians 4:26; 32

Look at the previous verse and you’ll see that the Holy Spirit of God, Who comforts us, gives us heavenly peace, teaches us to life righteously, can be grieved. There is a series of things that can repel the God’s spirit away from us. The deception is big that person can live like he desires with no negative consequences after that. OK then, what we need to do when we sin? “If anyone sins, we have a Counselor with the Father, Jesus Christ, the righteous.” The sermon tells us, if someone sins, it’s not like its necessary or it could be, if that happens in time of weakness or negligence, time, in which you were not awake or you were tricked by Satan. If you sinned in a moment, when you didn’t want to, but it happened, we have a Counselor in heaven. Jesus is the only Counselor between God and the humanity. “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” 1 Timothy 2:5. When we pray to God to forgive our sins again and again the only way in which this is happening is that Jesus calls for us: “Father, forgive their sins for the blood I shed on the cross for them.” Then God for His great mercy and love to His begotten Son sees us through the blood of Jesus as righteous, like He, himself is. The sermon tells us: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us the sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9. The reason for this to happen is: “For as through the one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, even so through the obedience of the one, many will be made righteous.” Romans 5:19. Glory to Jesus for this that He became path for us to Father and today we can have access to the throne of God and to present us as righteous in front of Him. “Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, yes rather, who was raised from the dead, who is at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.” The promise of the Word is the thing that gives us courage to stay in front of God with repentant heart, without fearing punishment and rejection again. Jesus is our Counselor, which means that we are in good hands. “Therefore he is also able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, seeing that he lives forever to make intercession for them.” Hebrew 7:25

Do you hear that! Not sometimes or when He’s in a mood, but all the time! Halleluiah! I love you church! Pray for us for the ministry tomorrow in village of Byala.

God bless you and your day and to make you feel comfortable in Him.

Luke 11:37; 41 “Now as he spoke, a certain Pharisee asked him to dine with him. He went in, and sat at the table. When the Pharisee saw it, he marveled that he had not first washed himself before dinner. The Lord said to him, “Now you Pharisees cleanse the outside of the cup and of the platter, but your inward part is full of extortion and wickedness. You foolish ones, didn’t he who made the outside make the inside also? But give for gifts to the needy those things which are within, and behold, all things will be clean to you.”

When it’s about Pharisees in the Word, you truly want to have nothing in common with such people. In most of the cases they provoked Jesus, asked him uncomfortable tricky questions, they sought a reason to get Him in His speaking, when you hear about such people, better stay away from them. If, however, someone sees you that you speak or you were at a table with such that is very controversial personality, people will just say, this guy’s work isn’t clean. In other words: with Pharisees there are problems, no Pharisees no problems. But we see Jesus despite everything invited for lunch by one Pharisee and He went there. Jesus knew very well what He must do, accordingly to their tradition before eating, and despite everything He provoked them as He sat on the table close to the carefully washed to his elbows Pharisee. “(For the Pharisees and all the Jews, don’t eat unless they wash their hands and forearms, holding to the tradition of the elders. They don’t eat when they come from the marketplace unless they bathe themselves, and there are many other things, which they have received to hold to: washings of cups, pitchers, bronze vessels, and couches.)” Mark 7:3; 4. The Pharisee was surprised by the fact that Jesus isn’t taking in mind their so important detail before eating. For him it was very important everything to be done like it should be. Have you ever had this feeling that you must do everything accordingly to some traditions and customs, and if you don’t do it with others you become different and unapproved for others? Yes, that’s typical Pharisee spirit. Today the churches have it abundantly. It is something that must be removed, because the Pharisee yeast is growing through the whole lump. “A little yeast grows through the whole lump.” Galatians 5:9. If you don’t believe it, try it practically. How you can make sourdough? Mix equal amount of ground beans and water and leave in a warm place to ferment. The difficulty comes from the power cycle of the yeast. Periodically, the mixture should be fed with flour until leaven become stronger. The leaven is the natural process of swelling of bread. That is voluminous, pompous, but when you crush it, you know what it looks like. And so, Jesus, knowing that the Pharisee is again in perplexity and there are too many questions in him, He answered him before he even asked about that. Without fearing to be removed from the table Jesus told him that what the Pharisee learned and protects like tradition, not going to be used in the future, if he hasn’t learned the more valuable lesson, to wash his inside by repentance. He said to him right in his eyes and in his own house on his table that his hearth is full of theft and violence. Tell me now: Who among you wants to have the Christ ministry? Many people want to heal like Jesus, others to be able to do great deeds, but I doubt someone wants to have ministry, in which he must confront the sin in the human hearts in that way. I will tell you something important! The first can’t stand without the second. Without repentance there’s no forgiveness, without forgiveness there is no releasing and undoing of the sins, without that there is no freedom in Jesus. “And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name to all the nations, beginning at Jerusalem.” Luke 24:47. Jesus closed the conversation before someone could ask anything. He said that Father, the Creator of everything, made the inside and outside, but if person insists on cleaning the inside of his life, everything will be clean in him. “To the pure, all things are pure; but to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure; but both their mind and their conscience are defiled.” Titus 1:15. Today, it’s time for the church to be cleaned not so much on the outside, how to look like and what fame it has, but more in the inside. What message she bears inside? What is the life of all of us the believers in Jesus? Are we the Christ’s example with good attitude, love and faith? “Let no man despise your youth; but be an example to those who believe, in word, in your way of life, in love, in spirit, in faith, and in purity.” 1 Timothy 4:12. These are the important things in our spiritual life that will make people to watch in us and to see the light, with which we shine. The Apostles were watching and learning everything from Jesus. They were good followers even in this thing with the hand washing. Look this: “Then the Pharisees and some of the scribes gathered together to him, having come from Jerusalem. Now when they saw some of his disciples eating bread with defiled, that is unwashed, hands, they found fault.” Mark 7:1; 2. That’s right, like couches, like athletes! Halleluiah!

Have full peace and a day full with grave and nice surprises! And don’t forget first to wash your inside, and then the hands and everyone will be happy.

I truly love you church! Pastor Vasil Petrov

Luke 11:24; 26 “The unclean spirit, when he has gone out of the man, passes through dry places, seeking rest, and finding none, he says, ‘I will turn back to my house from which I came out.’ When he returns, he finds it swept and put in order. Then he goes, and takes seven other spirits more evil than himself, and they enter in and dwell there. The last state of that man becomes worse than the first.”

Let’s track again the words of Jesus, so we can have knowledge of what is happening exactly when the unclean spirit gets casted out of a person. After a person is saved he experiences freedom, his spiritual heart gets unbounded from unclean spirits, because even the Word says: “If therefore the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.” John 8:36. This is the place where a person experiences full repentance and he submits his heart to Jesus. We see that such person becomes newly created and completely different from what he was before. We see total transformation of his spiritual life. A person that has as a Master Jesus is really free from sin and death. “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus made me free from the law of sin and of death.” Romans 8:2. However, we often stop here, and like people that experienced freedom in our spiritual life, we think that our whole life from now on will run smoothly. That’s not true. Jesus reveals to us what exactly is happening in the spiritual world with the spiritual creatures of darkness and their identity that leave us. Jesus tells us clearly that we must stay in the freedom that He gave to us and to never let our guard down, so we can’t be entangled again with a yoke of bondage. “Stand firm therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and don’t be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.” Galatians 5:1. Leaving the human body the unclean spirit looks for peace, accordingly to the Word. From the words of Jesus we understand that when the spirit is in someone’s body he feels calm. “At once Jesus gave them permission. The unclean spirits came out and entered into the pigs. The herd of about two thousand rushed down the steep bank into the sea, and they were drowned in the sea.” Mark 5:13. From this picture we see that while leaving the person, the spirits begged Jesus to let them go into another body, no matter if it is animal one, and He allowed them. Let’s remember this, the unclean spirits have the ability to search for a body, which for them is a home, and they don’t want to be disturbed until they finish their hellish deeds in the life of the person. Jesus said: “Don’t be afraid of those who kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul. Rather, fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in Gehenna.” Matthew 10:28. Staying in the freedom of Jesus we are really free, but if we open again the door of our spiritual heart to the corruption of the sin, the seeking for peace unclean spirits will come back in our life. “The thief only comes to steal, kill, and destroy. I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.” John 10:10. The manifestations will be revealed. I’ve always said to people not to do this, because the sin is not some weakness of ours, but he’s like a tumor that grows and produces death. “Then the lust, when it has conceived, bears sin; and the sin, when it is full grown, produces death.” James 1:15. Don’t let the sin to rule over you, because that’s the only way for the unclean spirits to see an open spiritual door of your heart. “For sin will not have dominion over you. For you are not under law, but under grace.” Romans 6:14. The clean house is pure heart. Jesus tells us that the unclean spirits roams and comes back after time. You were freed by many unclean spirits in your life when you accepted Jesus as your Master in your life, but don’t forget that these spirits, which left you, will roam here and there and will look some kind of a chance to come back from where they left. They can’t come back into you by force, but they’ll hope you to let them. That’s why you need to protect yourselves from sin and be extremely cautious to your old weaknesses, because these are areas, where you can be enslaved again. Satan is crafty and sly and he is interested in your weak spots, so he can weaken you and disarm you. And not on last place we must know that the spirits work as a team. When he sees a chance to come back to the place where he was, he takes others meaner spirits than him, which speaks about hierarchy for them, and they come back in the same house. Here it’s said that the condition of the person is getting worse than before. Which person? The freed one! Once I had a case of cured man from malignant cancer of the rhino pharynx. He was completely cured by God and after he came in our healing meeting, when the tumour was literally coming out of his mouth. After the prayer, the tumour popped by himself and it started to leak.  After a month he was completely healed. I saw the boy later, and his face was smooth like on a baby. He was so different and changed. No doubt, his heart was completely cleaned and his life belonged to Jesus. Sadly, after a few months we found out that the tumour has come back and he died really quickly. I talked with the people close to him what exactly happened with him, because I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. They told me that he went back to his old sins, and not long after the tumour grew again. The doctors confirmed this miracle and many people were witnesses of what happened, but sadly, the boy decided that he’s out of danger and he can do whatever he wants with his life. Many people do that mistake, but in the writings it’s said that we don’t belong to ourselves: “Or don’t you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. Therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” 1 Corinthians 6:19; 20

Never do similar mistakes, the results will be same.

Have a wonderful day!

Luke 11:24; 26 “The unclean spirit, when he has gone out of the man, passes through dry places, seeking rest, and finding none, he says, ‘I will turn back to my house from which I came out.’ When he returns, he finds it swept and put in order. Then he goes, and takes seven other spirits more evil than himself, and they enter in and dwell there. The last state of that man becomes worse than the first.”

Why the church today doesn’t cast out unclean spirits like it’s ordered by Jesus? He was doing this throughout His whole ministry. “When evening came, they brought to him many possessed with demons. He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick;” Matthew 8:16. Something more, He taught his students to do it. “These signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new languages;” Mark 16:17. The casting out of demons is part of the church’s ministry today. The people that believe in Jesus must have the knowledge and understanding that when it’s needed to do what they have to, they already have the power and strength in the name of Jesus to do it. Jesus said: “Whatever you will ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” John 14:13. Today, the church is not prepared to do this, because she doesn’t have the understanding, the will and the faith for that. Jesus said that the believers will do this! The people can’t be free, if Christ doesn’t free them. We must let Jesus to use us to do this. When we are blocked right at the first step, how to expect dealing with the rest? It’s said at 24th verse, “When he has gone out of the man”. Here, there’s no doubt of this, that when the spirit is casted out, he’ll leave the person. Jesus doesn’t give any chance to the spirit to stay within the man; the only thing that has to be done is someone to say to the spirit “get out”. Jesus wasn’t gone to hunt spirits or to search for them; He was going from one place to another and preached the God’s kingdom. Jesus stated clearly: “But if I by God’s finger cast out demons, then God’s Kingdom has come to you.” Luke 11:20. That is what the church and the servants must preach today as well. God’s kingdom and the things which Jesus did must happen today as well! Amen! Today, I don’t want to continue talking forward about what happens after the unclean spirit get’s out of the person, but I want to focus your attention in the most important thing, that first the unclean spirit must get out of the person. That’s the most important part. When it has been ordered to him, he must leave the person. There’s no other alternative, according to Jesus. If we believe that, then we won’t get worried about casting out unclean spirits. That’s just one part of our spiritual ministry. You, my dear believing people, must know that the kingdom of darkness doesn’t have power over the Christ’s church. Jesus said to Peter these old covenant words: “I also tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my assembly, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it.” Matthew 16:18. If today the church sits on the rock Jesus, there is no way the power of Satan to prevail over it. I don’t believe it. That’s why after I saw throughout the years in the church so many people that were confused, depressed, scared, sick, bounded by Satan, double-minded, leaving the churches with pain in their heart, I said to myself: “Something is wrong in this whole thing.” Jesus doesn’t want this to happen to His people after he died on the cross, “that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,” 1 Corinthians 15:4. We must know that we are: “We are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” Romans 8:37. If we believe that Jesus truly loves us, we would never put under a doubt this love. We will know Him the way He is! Amen! We will show our love to Him, sharing it with the world around us. We will be disgust by what He denies and will love what He loves. In the ministry of Jesus there was no moment in which unclean spirits ignored the order “Get out”. “Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be quiet, and come out of him!” Mark 1:25. Remember this! Jesus was praying to Father alone by himself, separately from everyone. “Early in the morning, while it was still dark, he rose up and went out, and departed into a deserted place, and prayed there.” Mark 1:35. Indeed, the church must be prepared spiritually, so she can be strong in moments when she must go up against the kingdom of darkness. And the most important thing is that you must remember for casting out spirits is that you’re not the one that’s casting them out, it’s the Holy Spirit of God in the name of Jesus. Live always filled with the Holy Spirit of God and the unclean spirits will obey you. Amen!

Have a wonderful and full of grace day!

Luke 11:24 “The unclean spirit, when he has gone out of the man, passes through dry places, seeking rest, and finding none, he says, ‘I will turn back to my house from which I came out.’”

What is actually the unclean spirit? Many of its characteristics we can see in the picture that Jesus describes in Luke chapter 11. First we must know well that unclean spirit is the common name of dirty evil spirit, and he is servant in the kingdom of darkness, of which Satan is master. These spiritually unclean, evil things can get in and out in the human body. We must know well that for them each body means home, dwelling. Apostle Paul reveals well this truth in 1 Corinthians 6:19: “Or don’t you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which you have from God? You are not your own,” When he speaks to the church for the sin he says that they can’t make sins, because each of them represents temple, place, dwelling of the Holy Spirit. He says to everyone that they are not on their own, which means that they’ll be forever under some influence of domination. The teaching for the person’s own mind ends here! Many people today in their ignorance think that they take the decisions of their life. Yes, but depends on who is your Master. If a person is guided to put an end to his life, what spirit exactly rules his life? If someone is dependent on drugs, tobacco, alcohol, porn and etc., who do you think pushes his life to certain death? Someone is guiding the body of the person and for you is good to know who exactly is doing it. “No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to one, and despise the other. You aren’t able to serve God and Mammon.” Luke 16:13. For the unclean spirit there are two paths of residence. That is the body or the dry places. When he is not in the body, Apostle Paul says that he have the ability to move just like Satan. “Be sober and self-controlled. Be watchful. Your adversary, the devil, walks around like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” 1 Peter 5:8. The unclean spirit is moving and searching. It’s really frustrating to know that there are invisible creatures, and they roam and search for home to live in. The Word teaches us that we have alternative and we can choose the Master of our life. We must know that only with our own will and good moral conduct we can fight the power of the unclean and evil. Because, so you can win in your body’s life, you need guidance. “Don’t you know that when you present yourselves as servants and obey someone, you are the servants of whomever you obey; whether of sin to death, or of obedience to righteousness?” Romans 6:16 Let me say it like that. If your life doesn’t belong fully to Jesus and He is not the Master and Savior of your life, you’re a free accommodation, poisoned home for unclean spirits. If the Holy Spirit is not the helmsman and guide of your life, then you’ll be influenced and guided by unclean spirits. “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are children of God.” Romans 8:14 People that are not guided by the God’s Holy Spirit are in danger to become home of unclean sprits. Have you heard of the phrase: He was a good boy, but what happened to him? Today more than ever the spirits of impurity and lawlessness rule people, so they can do crazy things. When, for example, 20 years ago you thought that person will put dynamite on himself and he’ll blow himself up, only and only to hurt other people around him, no matter if they are helpless women or children. How many people today put an end to their lives, when they are in front of not so hard situations? You can turn around and see people with big potential and capabilities, reached desperate situation, only because someone else is guiding their life, and that’s not God’s Holy Spirit. “For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world’s rulers of the darkness of this age, and against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12 Today, more than ever is time the church to understand its role on this earth. God called us for time like this and gave us His Holy Spirit, so we can be instrument in His hand today, which will bring the people to knowledge of the truth. The truth that will free them! This grace is for everybody, “For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, instructing us to the intent that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we would live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world;” Titus 2:11;12.

This grace is for your families, kin, colleagues, citizens; this grace on first place is for you. Whoever tasted from it, he stays forever.

Have a wonderful and full of grace day!

Luke 11:23; 26 “He that is not with me is against me. He who doesn’t gather with me scatters. The unclean spirit, when he has gone out of the man, passes through dry places, seeking rest, and finding none, he says, ‘I will turn back to my house from which I came out.’ When he returns, he finds it swept and put in order. Then he goes, and takes seven other spirits more evil than himself, and they enter in and dwell there. The last state of that man becomes worse than the first.”

In this chapter from Luke, Jesus assures us that we can easy recognize the unclean spirit and his way of act. The generalized words are exactly those which are easily missed all the time: “He scatters”. The work of the unclean spirits is to scatter your life and the life of the ones around you. Everything they touch is destruction, scatter, shatter, depression, annihilation. After that Jesus describes the way of act of the unclean spirit, also clear characteristic of this way. Let’s analyze the details. First we understand that we don’t have work with the deeds of the flesh, which are obvious according to: Galatians 5:19 “Now the deeds of the flesh are obvious, which are: adultery, sexual immorality, uncleanness, lustfulness,”, but we have work with unclean spirit. The spirit has no flesh, but he seeks such for his home. In verse 14 of Luke it’s said the Jesus was casting out a mute spirit (demon). This means that the spirit who was in the person damaged that person, because after he was casted away, the mute man spoken. The unclean spirit was the reason for the inability of the person to speak. This is only one of the ways of which they scatter, in this case the person’s health. I don’t really believe that the person alone would’ve wanted to scatter, perish and destroy his life completely. The reason for that are not the circumstances, but the spirit that makes them. People who put an end to their life or just thinking about it are bounded by demons. Jesus freed a woman who was bounded by spirit of infirmity: “Behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and she was bent over, and could in no way straighten herself up.” Luke 13:11. Here we see that the spirit has caused other problems, and not for a while but eighteen years. It’s bad to know that spirit can live in you for such a long time. Jesus said to the spirit to free her, and he left her. “When Jesus saw her, he called her, and said to her, “Woman, you are freed from your infirmity.” Luke 13:12. Years ago I preached the God’s kingdom in Venice, Italy. After the message of the Good News one young hunched man came forward and wanted me to pray for him. I laid my hand on his spine and I ordered the spirit of infirmity to free him. I noticed that when the spirit of infirmity came out the young man cried out strongly, breathed heavily and he got weakened for a while. I saw that he was still breathing heavily. After that he took a deep breath and in the same moment his spine got healed. Just couple a days before we received a testimonial for a child on five months that after a prayer of healing in our show, “In the world of miracles”, God has stood up the limbs of the child after the doctors wanted to put special rails to do that. Glory to Jesus! I believe that God gave us His Holy Spirit so we can do His deeds. “Most certainly I tell you, he who believes in me, the works that I do, he will do also; and he will do greater works than these, because I am going to my Father.” John 14:12. Come on people preach it! All that is for the believers! Halleluiah!  In Paul’s ministry we see that what Jesus did is repeating again: “At Lystra a certain man sat, impotent in his feet, a cripple from his mother’s womb, who never had walked. He was listening to Paul speaking, who, fastening eyes on him, and seeing that he had faith to be made whole, 10 said with a loud voice, “Stand upright on your feet!” He leaped up and walked.” Acts 14:8; 10. We must know that each person is created by spirit, soul and body, and we have to understand that the redemption of a person is by spirit, soul and body. In his message to Corinthians, Apostle Paul describes well the difference between spirit and flesh. “So also is the resurrection of the dead. The body is sown perishable; it is raised imperishable. It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power. It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body and there is also a spiritual body. So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living soul.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. However that which is spiritual isn’t first, but that which is natural, then that which is spiritual. The first man is of the earth, made of dust. The second man is the Lord from heaven. As is the one made of dust, such are those who are also made of dust; and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. As we have borne the image of those made of dust, let’s also bear the image of the heavenly. Now I say this, brothers, that flesh and blood can’t inherit God’s Kingdom; neither does the perishable inherit imperishable.” 1 Corinthians 15:42; 50. But what exactly happens with the spirit that frees people? Where is he going? What is he? These are question of which I’ll try to answer next time.

Have a full of grace day!

Luke 11:20; 26 “But if I by God’s finger cast out demons, then God’s Kingdom has come to you. “When the strong man, fully armed, guards his own dwelling, his goods are safe. But when someone stronger attacks him and overcomes him, he takes from him his whole armor in which he trusted, and divides his plunder. “He that is not with me is against me. He who doesn’t gather with me scatters. The unclean spirit, when he has gone out of the man, passes through dry places, seeking rest, and finding none, he says, ‘I will turn back to my house from which I came out.’ When he returns, he finds it swept and put in order. Then he goes, and takes seven other spirits more evil than himself, and they enter in and dwell there. The last state of that man becomes worse than the first.”

Today, let’s look at something very important in these verses. Jesus said that no matter how strong and armed is the demon in one spiritual home, after someone stronger attacks him and overcomes him, he takes everything from him. I want to focus your attention on the words of Jesus. He said this proverb after already casting out demon from a mute man. I don’t know how many times that happened to you, seeing with your own eyes, but when you see mute demon coming out of the person, then you understand not only on theory, but in reality the strength and power of Jesus. “For apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5. It’s one thing to watch a football match on the TV, totally different is to go and watch it on the football stadium! Years ago we were in city of Vraca, in the church, in which my grandfather was pastor. I preached the Word of God, and then I felt anointing from the Holy Spirit for healing. When you are still in your human nature and know that you can’t help people in their needs, comes the moment, when this anointing of strength and power comes, which is not from this world. You start speaking words of prophetic sermon through the gifts of the Spirit, without needing written and arranged preaches. Your whole conscious is filled with this faith of healing that nothing is impossible for those who believe. The faith is a gift from God, and we don’t have it by knowledge, it comes from the heavens. Then you see the bounded people and now you start to pray not with a hesitating spirit, but through faith, you overtake the house of the bounded person by the sword of the Spirit, which is the God’s Word, and: “being fully assured that what he had promised, he was also able to perform.” Romans 4:21. I started to pray for all the sick and to lay hands on them for healing. The anointing was so strong that we felt it all around us. There was no need for me to even do something; because the people accepted healing and many of them were healed from joint diseases, varicose veins, heart problems, various growths on the body.” There was also a boy to me, on whom I just laid my hands and he was one of the few that fell on the ground and started to prophesied. He was quoting good psalms and he was praising God without even knowing the psalms. The people became to scream from enthusiasm and I was wondering what exactly happened on that place. After I lifted him out of the ground I asked him: What exactly happened to you? He answered that he was mute from little kid and he couldn’t speak. And now, not only he was speaking, but he was full with the Word of knowledge and he prophesied. Isn’t that God’s finger on this boy? Isn’t that the strength of God’s kingdom upon him? Halleluiah! When you see all of that happening in front of your eyes, the God’s Word is starting to become for you a real supernatural power, a sword that you use like a weapon against the power of darkness. The believers are called to walk in the strength of the Holy Spirit, to preach the gospel, to cast out demons, to lay hands on sick and to heal them. Our calling is to overcome the kingdom of darkness: “Therefore put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and, having done all, to stand.” Ephesians 6:13. Yes, you can take the whole armor of the strong, and overcome him, because the One that is within you is stronger than the one in the world. “Because greater is he who is in you than he who is in the world.” 1 John 4:4. We must trust to God with our whole nature, not being only passive readers, but also active doers of His Word. “But be doers of the word, and not only hearers, deluding your own selves.” James 1:22. Many people today quote the Word, so they can show how right they are, and that’s fruit of their philosophy and pride while the sick die, the crippled are still crippled, the blind are still blind, and the deaf can’t hear. The sick don’t need compassion, and to tell them how much Jesus loves them. They want to see the deeds of Jesus and to be healed. Amen! But each of us must walk in himself with that revelation: “We have come to believe and know that you are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”  John 6:69

Luke 11:20; 26 “But if I by God’s finger cast out demons, then God’s Kingdom has come to you. “When the strong man, fully armed, guards his own dwelling, his goods are safe. 22  But when someone stronger attacks him and overcomes him, he takes from him his whole armor in which he trusted, and divides his plunder. “He that is not with me is against me. He who doesn’t gather with me scatters. 24  The unclean spirit, when he has gone out of the man, passes through dry places, seeking rest, and finding none, he says, ‘I will turn back to my house from which I came out.’ When he returns, he finds it swept and put in order. Then he goes, and takes seven other spirits more evil than himself, and they enter in and dwell there. The last state of that man becomes worse than the first.”

Jesus said to those, who accused him in casting out demons by Beelzebub, that Satan can’t cast out Satan. Jesus said that if He casts out demons by God’s finger it means that the kingdom of God is upon them. Jesus said that the people that believed in Him will proclaim the Father’s kingdom in this way: “These signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new languages; they will take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it will in no way hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” Mark 16:17; 18 This is a subject that we must know well, because it’s not only about our spiritual life, but more like how we can help people who are bounded by demons. In recent times I’ve read many utterances and philosophical statements apparently by people who never collided truly with the kingdom of darkness. Let me say this: It’s one having a drivers lessons, other is to drive the car. One of the questions that excite many people is: Do the Christians have demons or no? I think that’s a question of interpretation, not of doctrine. That’s the reason for thousands of disputes of people who aren’t casting out demons, they only speak about them. Even when we talk about faith in Jesus and God’s kingdom there are so many things which we can’t understand with our limited mind. Jesus said to the Jews who were also looking answers to their questions: “You search the Scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and these are they which testify about me.” John 5:39 Yes, it’s useful to search the scriptures, but we must not forget that not the scriptures has life, they guide us to knowing the life, which means Jesus. It’s the same with the kingdom of darkness. There are scriptures that we can’t understand with our mind and until we cross through them by experience we can’t confirm that we know this area. Me and my wife are in ministry of liberation and healing more than fifty years, and we met so many things in the way we traveled, but nevertheless, each time when we go to pray for sick and cast out demons from bounded person, we meet new areas that we don’t know well. Then we pray to God to show us the way through the scriptures, how to reach full victory in any single case. “Don’t be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what is the good, well-pleasing, and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:2 Our mind and heart must be renewed by experiences in the spiritual world, so we can know what is in God. How can we say if Christians have demons or no? Now I’ll see how many things you have to check before giving concrete answer to this not insubstantial question. First we must clarify who is Christian and who is not. Let me ask you a couple of rhetorical questions. Each, who calls himself Christian, is he believer? Each, who claim and says for himself that he’s a believer, is he a believer? If I must say only with two words, are there demons in the believers, I’ll say surely no and I can biblically justify it. However, I can continue and say that I’ve seen many people that claim that they are believers, but they are not and they have demons. Other factor for this misunderstanding is can a believer be possessed or he’s just under the influence of demons? Now, that’s something for which we can talk about more. When we speak for a whole country for example, like everyone say that Bulgaria is a Christian nation, but are all the people in the country are fervent followers of Jesus? I would like to be like that, but it’s not. That’s why we must not talk from ignorance, but from experience agreed with the scriptures. When the Apostles had to answer similar questions, like for example the one connected to the sacrificing to idols, they were speaking like that: “Now concerning things sacrificed to idols: We know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up. But if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he doesn’t yet know as he ought to know. But if anyone loves God, the same is known by him.” 1 Corinthians 8:1; 3 God showed me that the knowledge doesn’t make you strong in God, but the love and motivation, which you use to follow Him. If you are going to cast out demons and explore the scriptures ask yourself this question: Why are you doing it? So you can have ministry or to set free the depressed from the devil. Apostle Paul says: “But having the same spirit of faith, according to that which is written, “I believed, and therefore I spoke.” We also believe, and therefore also we speak;” 2 Corinthians 4:13 If you speak and act, because you believe, you won’t be confused and you won’t be asking yourself insoluble questions, God will guide you by the Holy Spirit and you will learn from experience what’s good and what’s not. Instruction and examples are following for people bounded by Satan… Luke 11:20; 26

1 Peter 5:6;8 “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time; casting all your worries on him, because he cares for you. Be sober and self-controlled. Be watchful. Your adversary, the devil, walks around like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”

In the message of Peter is said that we must not be asleep, drugged and unarmored by the devil. We always must be awake which means with four eyes open. The devil will search for any opportunity to come back in your life through your old memories and weakness. By the time God teaches you to look ahead through His Holly Spirit, the devil will try to take you back to your memories, to asleep and suffocate you in them. Paul the Apostle signalises in his message to Thessalonians and at the same way he reminds to the church that our war with the enemy has not finished. When people get lost and stop checking themselves, when they think that they are super spiritual and invulnerable, when they believe that they don’t need repentance in their life, the devil had already made them to disarm the God’s armor.

“So then let’s not sleep, as the rest do, but let’s watch and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep in the night, and those who are drunk are drunk in the night. But let us, since we belong to the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and, for a helmet, the hope of salvation. For God didn’t appoint us to wrath, but to the obtaining of salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,“ 1 Thessalonians 5:6;9

The meekness under the authority of God is our privilege. To subdue voluntarily under the His mighty arm this means obedience and submission. When we walk submitted in His paths we will let God to raise and put us to a more high level of service and responsibility. Many people skip this moment and that is why they are being destroyed by their egocentricity and missing submission. After their sins were forgiven, after they tasted how much gracious is God, after they have reached some level of knowledge about God, most people easily forget the simple firstly seen things but more preciously how they reached to this place. By obedience, submission, sequence, faithfulness, repentance. There are so many things which God builds in us through His Holy Spirit even without seeing them sometimes. He gives us experiences as we train our feelings and emotions. He gives us tests through which to pass so that we become much stronger. “Knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.“ James 1:3 When we heart ourselves again in them He binds our wounds and takes care for them. ”Come, and let us return to Yahweh; for he has torn us to pieces, and he will heal us; he has injured us, and he will bind up our wounds.” Hosea 6:1 The Word of God tells us that we must trust God and learn to stand confident in His arm. We must not panic and scare from the enemy because this will invalidate our spiritual progress. God wants to meet every our care to improve that He is a Master of our life. God does not run from us when the things become series as, the devil is trying to deception us. God does not scare and He does not leave our life in hard times to say deal by yourself. He is our faithful friend! Amen! We can trust Him anytime. We can tell Him everything which happens in our life, what we feel and think. The Word of God tells us that we can trust Him for any our care and He will manage it. “I tell you, my friends, don’t be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.” Luke 12:4 Isn’t it wonderful that we have such friend who to vanquish the death, resurrected from the death, destroyed the cases of the satan, raised Himself and sat on the right side of Father, intercedes day and night for us in front of God and forgives our all sins and lawlessness. He is just on our side. Try to understand that with your spirit but not with your mind because our mind won’t figure it. If you are away of Chris body you will be an easy prey to satan. He will separate you, make you fruitless and weak and after this he will finish you through his methods and mostly through deceitfulness of sin. That is why and Hebrews 3:13 says: “ but exhort one another day by day, so long as it is called “today”; lest anyone of you be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.”. One each other means the Christ body. This of its hand means trust, maturity, teamwork, sharing, confession, repentance, submission. God knows how to invent this in every each of us.

Have a wonderful day in the name of Jesus! I bless you church!

Revelation 12:10 “I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation, the power, and the Kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ has come; for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them before our God day and night.”

“Fallen Angel” is the definition that we must know for this who is actually the devil or Satan. Do you know well the enemy, the accuser, who day and night, never stops and looks a way to destroy you? Do you know who is he and what are his intentions and tricks, used from centuries, so he can destroy the human kind? Jesus alone says in Matthew 10:28: “Don’t be afraid of those who kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul. Rather, fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in Hell.” After the words of Jesus saying the words “never fear” borders with foolishness. There are two types of people at my opinion: The first ones are too scared from the devil and they don’t even dare talking for him or to learn more from the Bible for his deeds, so nothing bad can happen to them. They are simple in their thoughts, and the thing you can hear them saying is: “Better be silent, so the devil won’t hear us”. Have you met people with such thinking? They are already defeated by him. They carry in themselves spirit of fear. The second type of people is the overconfident ones. They think that they know his deeds so well, and with just couple of learned verses from the scripture, they will keep Satan away from their life. I saw such people in my life and their end was not successful at all. Something more is needed from being cowardly religious fanatic or overconfident, fooled, and unwary in your fight against the enemy. Not in vain the Bible calls Satan the old serpent: “He seized the dragon, the old serpent, which is the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole inhabited earth, and bound him for a thousand years,” Revelation 20:2. Why devil and Satan? These are just part of the names that resemble his work. Devil means “accuser”, described well in the Revelation of John. Satan became the ruler of this world, who works separately from God, and the principle of the heavenly power (John 12:31; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Ephesians 2:2), he is the accuser (Revelation 12:10), tempter (Matthew 4:3; 1 Thessalonians 3:5) and deceiver (Genesis 3; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Revelation 20:3). His name itself means opponent or “someone who opposes”. Some people are afraid of him, because of the thing that he might appear in real and get them in trouble. Here is why in their ignorance they deny every single possibility to learn more for what is he or who he was. Remember that our weapon is the sword of the Spirit that is the God’s word. In God’s word, not somewhere else, God tells us about who is really Satan. Jesus was teaching his students on that. They, from their side were teaching that through their messages to the church. The knowledge will make us sober and self-controlled in the fight against evil and darkness. From the scriptures we understand that the way of his attacks to our life is not going to be from the outside “in real”, but from the inside to outside. That’s good reason to take the biblical examples and to teach ourselves who is he, what power he has, how to protect ourselves from him, how to resist him and how to defeat him. That seems reasonable to me and I’ll tell you that the more I learned for the enemy, the easier it is to resist his deeds. In a sequence of lessons I’ll give you examples from the Bible, and some of my personal livings, so I can help you to become stronger in the fight against the kingdom of darkness. The least is when someone, that doesn’t believe, asks you who actually Satan is, you will have to answer him with good and tested biblical examples. Who is Satan? Simply said, the Bible defines Satan like an angelic creature that fell from his position in Heaven, because of the sin and now is opposing God, doing everything at his strength to cripple God’s purpose for the humanity. Although he was banished from the Heaven, he will still try to rise his throne over God. He imitates everything that God does, hoping to receive the world’s obedience and to instigate opposing of God’s kingdom. Satan is the prime source of every false cult and world religion. Satan will make whatever and everything that he’s capable of, so he can resist God and to those, who follow God. However, the destiny of Satan is already decided permanently – eternity in Hell (Revelation 20:10).

God bless you abundantly in the knowing of His word.

Hello Church, 24th January 2013

Matthew 12:24; 28 “But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, “This man does not cast out demons, except by Beelzebul, the prince of the demons.” Knowing their thoughts, Jesus said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand? If I by Beelzebul cast out demons, by whom do your children cast them out? Therefore they will be your judges. But if I by the Spirit of God cast out demons, then God’s Kingdom has come upon you.”

The Holy Spirit guides me in a sequence of topics to meet the church with the kingdom of light and the kingdom of darkness. The reason for that is that most of the people, new-believers or devoted believers, know partially for God’s kingdom, but they don’t know enough for the kingdom of darkness. Then, how to understand if we live in the kingdom of light, and not consumed by darkness without even knowing about it? If we want to walk surely in Christ and God’s kingdom, which is the kingdom of light, to be basis of our life, we must know it well. Let me start with that. In the history, which we read, it’s said that they brought to Jesus one person with physical problems. According to the writings the person was possessed by madness, blindness and he was mute. Jesus healed him, so the person started to speak and he received his sight. When the Pharisees heard about that, they said that Jesus is doing miracles through the prince of the demons. They studied ancient mythology and they knew well the demons, the angels and the supernatural powers. That subject was interesting for them, the revealing and the knowing of mythical apparitions and miracles. They were not amazed by the miracle done by Jesus, but from the one that did it through Him. Today, less and less people ask themselves such questions. They want to see miracle, no matters how or by who it’s going to happen. The people go to tellers, sorcerers, a familiar spirit, astrologers, fortune-tellers, things made by human hands, idols. The list for pilgrimage of demons is long and mysterious, while to Jesus, things were happening like it was simpler. However, the thing that they didn’t know yet was God’s kingdom. What do we know about Beelzebul? Beelzebul or Baal Zebub. The word means “Master of the sky home” or “Master of the flies”. While in the Old Testament that’s the name of the god of Philistines (II Kings 1:2-3), in the New Testament that’s how the master of the demons is called, Satan. Let me ask you an easy question. On what are the flies landing? What do they love? Now you understand what tragedy is to let their leader, their chief, their master to rule your life. When people are sick they search for all king of options to survive, but that’s not always the correct thing to do. For example, when we read the story of King Ahaziah we understand that he fell from very high and he injured himself badly. Then he sent people to inquire with the god of Ekron, Baal Zebub (Beelzebul), is he going to get well. Let me remind you! It’s like asking the master of flies. But Elijah met the messengers and told them to go back to their king and tell him this message: “Is it because there is no God in Israel, that you go to inquire of Baal Zebub, the god of Ekron?  Now therefore Yahweh says, “You will not come down from the bed where you have gone up, but you will surely die.” Did you saw the holy man of God, Prophet Elijah to be silent for the king’s doings? No for sure. On the contrary the king was exposed for his actions and not only that, but he got death sentence from God for this deed. Ahaziah asked his messengers how does the man that told this warning looks, they described him, and the king remembered that this is Elijah the Tishbite. Then the king sent three captains of fifty with their fifty to him to arrest him.  Two of them were destroyed by Heavenly fire, sent by God as requested by Elijah. The leader of the third fifty asked the Prophet to have mercy over him and his soldiers and to accompany them to the king. Elijah agreed, he told the Prophesy personally to Ahaziah and it was fulfilled. Bad thing don’t you think? And now if I tell that God is the same yesterday today and forever, I don’t think it will be the most inspiring place for sharing of that sermon. Jesus gave good lesson to the Pharisees when He told them that: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.” Here’s the reason for which I want the church today to know well the enemy, and most of all to know the strength of God’s kingdom. Jesus says that the banishing of demons can happen through the Holy Spirit of God and this guarantees that the kingdom of God is on that place. When we were little my sister had chicken thorns all over her legs. My parents were searching for all kind of options, so they can remove the problem, but they couldn’t with the power of the medicine. Then someone told them for one blind-born person in the city, who, by powwow removed them. My parents didn’t believe to that, but they decided to try. When we went to him, he asked them if they believe that he can cure her. They said no and he got very pissed. He told them that they need to believe in him, if they want her to be fine. Then he asked to put his hands to touch the chicken thorns and he said that everything is fine. After a few weeks these things disappeared forever. Later, when my parents were repentant believers, they understood that this didn’t happen through God’s strength and they repented for what they did. With this I want to say that I’ve seen the devil do miracles too, but not from compassionate heart, but to fool and kill. My sister was separated for the world for like fifteen years and I know that this was consequence from not knowing the kingdom of darkness. Today, she and their whole home are again to God and we thank Him for His huge mercy. Here’s a good start and one important trip in the message of Apostle Peter: “Be sober and self-controlled. Be watchful. Your adversary, the devil, walks around like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” 1 Peter 5:8

He well walk around and devour the inexperienced and unknowing people, but people that get closer to God will be safe. Amen!

Ephesians 6:18; 20 “with all prayer and requests, praying at all times in the Spirit, and being watchful to this end in all perseverance and requests for all the saints: on my behalf, that utterance may be given to me in opening my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the Good News, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.”

Being dressed like that in God’s full armor you become well protected from the devil’s tricks and you are well armed, so you can attack and destroy his works. The Word says to us that Jesus came on this earth to destroy his works. “To this end the Son of God was revealed: that he might destroy the works of the devil” 1 John 3:8. He made this not with a human fleshy strength, but through the strength of the Holy Spirit and the sword of the Spirit, which is God’s Word. If we really decided that we will be strong and faithful followers of Him, we must complete the picture with something that is not less important from everything counted so far. Let me show you something. No matter how well armed is one soldier or how well he’s trained in battle, if the enemy surprises him while he sleeps, he can defeat him easily and he will capture him. When we remind ourselves about this man of God, Samson, we see one strong and undefeatable warrior. Reading the story about him we amaze ourselves by inhuman strength that God gave him and how he defeats thousands of his enemies with ease. Thinking about that we’ll stay with the convincing that he is completely undefeatable. But, where we can fail? In what way the devil can trick us and overcome us? In the life of Samson that happened and it became a good example for us too. Samson was physically strong and invincible, but he had weakness to the ladies and he let to be tricked by the treachery of one woman. The Philistines wanted to catch him many times and they were going to him while he was sleeping, but he always won, because he was keeping the secret of his success. When he decided that he can trust Delilah, the woman that was with him, and to reveal the secret of his strength, with which he was defeating his enemies, he was disposed while sleeping, blinded, so he can’t resist, bounded and taken captive. If that happens to the strong Samson, do you think it can happen to me or you? Yes, of course. If we make the same mistakes, the same destiny awaits us. That’s why the sermon says to us: “Be sober and self-controlled. Be watchful. Your adversary, the devil, walks around like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” 1 Peter 5:8. That warning still stands. And today we can hear the voice of the Apostle that says to us: “Be careful, watch yourselves.” The devil is walking around our life, which means that he can’t enter that easy in it, if we don’t let him to do it. If we stay sober and awake he won’t have big chances. Awake - means praying all the time. Sober - means not to let the devil to seduce us in any ways, never trusting his propositions and tricks. The prayer in Spirit all the times with perseverance will be our guarantee for success. Undying perseverance means fully given in the hand of God. The prayer of the saints is strength. Jesus spent much time in prayer to our Father: “In these days, Jesus went out to the mountain to pray, and he continued all night in prayer to God.” Luke 6:12. The Apostles and all their followers did that tirelessly: “All these with one accord continued steadfastly in prayer and supplication, along with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers.” Acts 1:14. That’s from where the power success was coming in their life, and they were awake. The strength of prayer will start moving the sword of the Spirit, God’s Word, which abides in you and will tore every single spiritual bond, with which the devil tried to bind you and to make you unable to fight against the sin. That happened for Samson, although he had to pay with his life for the mistake he did. He prayed to God for last chance to overcome his enemies, not shamelessly dying in their hands. “Samson called to Yahweh, and said, “Lord Yahweh, remember me, please, and strengthen me, please, only this once, God, that I may be at once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes.” Judges 16:28. Yes, if the devil took away your eyes and chained your life and made you weak and despaired, cry out to God for last chance. God will forgive you, and He will give you new strength, so you can overcome and withstand everything. “Therefore put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and, having done all, to stand. Ephesians 6:13. Well, I think that I was able to close the circle of possibilities that God gives us, putting God’s full armor in our life. We went through all the details, so we can reach again the place, from which we started. The purpose of everything is our success, and God has it in abundance for us. It depends on us to be strong or easy vulnerable. Winners or Losers, Chained or Free, Sick or Healthy, Successful or Unsuccessful. God gave us everything that we need so we can succeed. “seeing that his divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and virtue;” 2 Peter 1:3

If you know God well, He will make you really strong! Now I know that you have everything that you need, so you can be truly victorious in your life. I hope that you will use God’s full armor, so you can be strong and well protected while going through the spiritual battles of time, which life will offer us. God with you in today’s beautiful day church!

We love you deeply! Pastor Vasil Petrov

Ephesians 6:17 “And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;”

Today, I want to spare special time for God’s work, having in mind that it is the sword of the Holy Spirit and we must know it and use it as intended. Let me start with that sermon: “I tell you that every idle word that men speak, they will give account of it in the Day of Judgment.” Matthew 12:36. Jesus says that from the words you say, you either excuse or judge yourself. There is big power in the words of our confession and from our side it would be lightly, if we enter in battle with the devil and the demons without being able to use the sword of the Spirit like God would want. Jesus said that in this battle the flesh is useless, because: “It is the spirit who gives life. The flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and are life.” John 6:63. In seventh chapter of John is given the result of the constancy in the teaching. Don’t forget that the longer you train and use the sword of the Spirit, the more spiritual battles you will win. “If you remain in me, and my words remain in you, you will ask whatever you desire, and it will be done for you.” John 15:7. Everything starts with that, first you have to believe that you have this sword in your mouth and it is the strength of God for blessing and curse. The Bible teaches us that everything that happened is happened through the God’s word. “Now faith is assurance of things hoped for, proof of things not seen. For by this, the elders obtained testimony. By faith, we understand that the universe has been framed by the word of God, so that what is seen has not been made out of things which are visible.” Hebrew 11:1; 3. The thing that we are talking about happened to the Apostles in the beginning of their great ministry. “When they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were gathered together. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.” Acts 4:31. Many people while speaking for the day of the Pentecost, they remember for the baptizing of the Apostles in the Holy Spirit and the gifts which they got to speak on different languages. But let me show you something that strongly excited me not less from praying on different languages. It’s said that when they were full with the Spirit, they started boldly to talk not just for God, but God’s word. Have you heard the expression that many people repeat in pray without even knowing its sense: “We are full with the Holy Spirit.” We see that there is effect from when God filled you with the Spirit. The bold preaching and prophesying of the word is just a part of the things that will declare this. Something more, the victory over Satan is possible only through the sword of the Spirit. “I have written to you, fathers, because you know him who is from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God remains in you, and you have overcome the evil one.” 1 John 2:14. Do you want to see the young people walking in victory over the full strength of Satan? Then teach them that they really need the truths of the God’s world, and not some cleverly created fables. The empty words will negate the strength and the influence of the sermon. What is empty word?  For me these are words repeated hundreds of times, without having strength. We must never forget that the Word is strength. “For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are dying, but to us who are saved it is the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:18. Say it with me! For us, the Word is power for salvation, not for empty words!  Say it again out loud until you find out that you truly believe it. The Bible says to us that It will clean our souls and It will guide us to solidarity and love. “Seeing you have purified your souls in your obedience to the truth through the Spirit in sincere brotherly affection, love one another from the heart fervently: having been born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, through the word of God, which lives and remains forever.” 1 Peter 1:22; 23. The statement that the word of God remains forever we can see in John’s Revelation too. Why? Because the most important thing that we must know for the Word is that like the Only Begotten from Father, full with grace and truth. “The Word became flesh, and lived among us. We saw his glory, such glory as of the one and only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:14. When one day we stay in front of Jesus we will see this picture: “I saw the heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it is called Faithful and True. In righteousness he judges and makes war. His eyes are a flame of fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has names written and a name written which no one knows but he himself. He is clothed in a garment sprinkled with blood. His name is called “The Word of God.” The armies which are in heaven followed him on white horses, clothed in white, pure, fine linen. Out of his mouth proceeds a sharp, double-edged sword, that with it he should strike the nations. He will rule them with an iron rod. He treads the wine press of the fierceness of the wrath of God, the Almighty. He has on his garment and on his thigh a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” Revelation 19:11; 16. But, what is the thing that will Jesus see in us? Now is the moment to ask ourselves this important question and to make acts of faith to God, asking Him to fill us with the Holy Spirit, so we can boldly use the sword of the Spirit too and to have victory, standing till the end. Did you saw the army that follows Jesus? Don’t you ever forget that she is on our side! Something more! If you want to become a part of this great army of God like putting the God’s full armor and resist Satan in your life. Amen!

Ephesians 6:17 “And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;”

The helmet is that part of the God’s armor which will protect our thoughts in Christ. It’s important while we pass through the battles, which we’ll have in this life, let’s not forget that the devil will try to attack our thoughts. He will try to put in us thoughts of unbelief, fear, disturbance, destruction, desperation. The easiest way to conquer and attack army is when the army is scared and uncertain. Our mind belongs to Jesus and we have to teach ourselves how to keep it intact. Apostle Paul says: “In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6; 7. Our thoughts are connected directly with our heart. Said in other way, the thing that you allow to come in your mind will decide the attitude and the action of your heart. The sword of the Spirit is the word of God. “For the word of God is living and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and is able to discern the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12. The word of God will have for target to be used and moved on time, not to sit in the scabbard and rust. It will search the thoughts and the intentions of everyone. It will teach us to be spiritual, wise and to know how to resist in our fight with the enemy. In his message to Thessalonians, the Apostle is again repeating the same preach, while showing us one more important thing. We are reading two things here that are not said in the message to Philippians, and this is to be awake and sober. Awake - means never to relax during our spiritual tests, and never let the devil shake our strong mind with his techniques. “You are all children of light, and children of the day. We don’t belong to the night, nor to darkness, so then let’s not sleep, as the rest do, but let’s watch and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep in the night, and those who are drunk are drunk in the night. But let us, since we belong to the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and, for a helmet, the hope of salvation. For God didn’t appoint us to wrath, but to the obtaining of salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. Therefore exhort one another, and build each other up, even as you also do.” 1 Thessalonians 5:5; 11. What we know about the salvation? With the birth of the God’s prophet John his father Zachary prophesied while saying: “And you, child, will be called a prophet of the Most High, for you will go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways, to give knowledge of salvation to his people by the remission of their sins, because of the tender mercy of our God, whereby the dawn from on high will visit us,” Luke 1:76; 78. The salvation is a gift from God for the human kind and a calling for repentance of our sins. We must always remember that we were saved, because God forgave our sins via the sacrifice of His Son Jesus on the cross and the shed to the testament blood. The word says to us that there is no other name given on earth among the humans through which they can be saved. “There is salvation in none other, for neither is there any other name under heaven, that is given among men, by which we must be saved!” Acts 4:12 Isaiah prophesies for the God’s armor like giving the same description for righteousness as a breastplate and a helmet of salvation. “He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor. Therefore his own arm brought salvation to him; and his righteousness sustained him. He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation on his head. He put on garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a mantle.” Isaiah 59:16; 17. That’s why put the helmet of salvation and it will protect your thoughts and hearts in Jesus. Salvation, which is in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! If you have this testimonial saved in our hearts through the Holy Spirit, it will make us walk and insist in truth. Our faith will be real and the devil will never be able to succeed in the fight against us. “But we are bound to always give thanks to God for you, brothers loved by the Lord, because God chose you from the beginning for salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief in the truth; to which he called you through our Good News, for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. So then, brothers, stand firm, and hold the traditions which you were taught by us, whether by word, or by letter. Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts and establish you in every good work and word.” 2 Thessalonians 2:13; 17.

And I said Amen to that word! Today, God will give us to taste again from His grace and constant mercy. I bless you in the name of Jesus and I inspire you to be strong in God.

Ephesians 6:16. “Above all, taking up the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the evil one.”

After we saw that being fitted with readiness to preach the Good News requires much dedication, let’s see then what will the shield of faith do in our life. Besides everything until now! Let’s remind what. Buckled with the truth around our waist and wearing the justice of the Gods’ armor, and our feet fitted with preparation for the Good News of peace. Yes, besides that we need to arm ourselves with shield too. The armors are starting to get heavy, but if you want to be well protected from the fire arrows of Satan, you’ll have to teach yourselves to use it. The shield of faith! What’s the definition of biblical faith? “Now faith is assurance of things hoped for, proof of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1. On first place you never lose hope and on second you are strongly convinced, confident, you trust in things which you can’t see. That’s faith. Jesus trained his students in faith all the time. “Jesus answered them, “Most certainly I tell you, if you have faith, and don’t doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you told this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ it would be done.” Matthew 21:21. Jesus said that for the faith there are no earthly limits. If they have true faith, she’ll make them free to do things, for which they wouldn’t even dare doing before. Our faith is not only protection of our thoughts, but also a good weapon against the deeds of Satan in our life. “The Lord said, “Simon, Simon, behold, Satan asked to have you, that he might sift you as wheat, but I prayed for you, that your faith wouldn’t fail. You, when once you have turned again, establish your brothers.” Luke 22:31; 32. If the devil wants to defeat us easily, first he needs to remove our shield of faith, which we raised. For him it will be really hard to do whatever when he sees this unwavering faith in our heart. That’s why our faith must never fall. Jesus said to Peter that Satan wants every single one of them, so he can sift them, which means to test them. Yes, we’ll always have the tests in our lives, but the question is, are we ready for them or not? We’ll be really strong when we teach ourselves through faith to resist the difficult tests that are in our lives. “No temptation has taken you except what is common to man. God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted above what you are able, but will with the temptation also make the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13. Our faith must be unwavering in Jesus. We must have Him full trust that no matter what we are into, He’s with us. God won’t leave us to be tempted more than we can handle. That’s a promise. Jesus won’t allow for us to lift an extra weight, if He doesn’t believe in us to do it. You must know that God already prepared a way of escape before you even ask for that. Don’t forget that He loves us and that’s why he’ll always help us in our weakness. Romans 5:6, tells us: “For while we were yet weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.” Jesus knows well that we, as humans in flesh, are surrounded by thousands of challenges, and He, alone, knows how to help us and to teach us to handle everything that comes in our life. He wants to make us strong in the faith. “, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.” James 1:3. And so the devil will throw at you the fire arrows of the tests, but you are expected to be well trained in how to deflect them with this shield that you have “faith”. The faith, which God alone gave in your life, will always say, even in your hardest moments, “God can”. “Now to him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.” Ephesians 3:20. Each of us must be able to handle well with this so important part of Gods’ full armor. The students of Jesus knew well this lesson and they were teaching their students of that. “, confirming the souls of the disciples, exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that through many afflictions we must enter into God’s Kingdom.” Acts 14:22. Something more! The Word teaches us that we, alone, must follow if the faith is raised like a shield in our lives. “Examine your own selves, whether you are in the faith. Test your own selves. Or don’t you know as to your own selves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you are disqualified.” 2 Corinthians 13:5. The encouragement of Apostle Paul to the believers in Corinth is: “Watch! Stand firm in the faith! Be courageous! Be strong!” 1 Corinthians 16:13. I believe that with each day that passes, the live church of God grows in faith and becomes stronger in the knowing of God. We will see the glory of Jesus in our lives, if we stand each day and fight the good fight. “I have fought the good fight. I have finished the course. I have kept the faith. 8 From now on, there is stored up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give to me on that day; and not to me only, but also to all those who have loved his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:7; 8

Ephesians 6:15 “and having fitted your feet with the preparation of the Good News of peace;” Continues…

The church can follow its calling and to walk in the strength and the anointing of the Holy Spirit only when she stays in unity and obedience to God. When we talk about preaching the Good News, we must understand that we are all part of it. Each performs different functions, but the target is one, saving the immortal human souls. The Good News for some is a lot of running: “Then after a period of fourteen years I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, taking Titus also with me. I went up by revelation, and I laid before them the Good News which I preach among the Gentiles, but privately before those who were respected, for fear that I might be running, or had run, in vain.” Galatians 2:1; 2 We can notice that Apostle Paul was sent to the Gentiles to preach the Good News and after that God sends him back in Jerusalem by revelation and his running was accompanied with faithful people. He adds Titus to his company along with Barnabas. When it’s spoken about partnership and collaboration one of the most active Apostles says that he can entrust the deed of ministry to people that have the same spirit as him and trusts them completely. “But I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you soon, that I also may be cheered up when I know how you are doing. For I have no one else like-minded, who will truly care about you. For they all seek their own, not the things of Jesus Christ. But you know the proof of him, that, as a child serves a father,” Philippians 2:19; 22 You can trust to people who were tested not only in words, but in deeds too. We can see in many of the verses that the Apostle talks for people that helped him and participated as collaborators, co-workers in the deed or the work of the Good News. “Therefore, my brothers, beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand firm in the Lord, my beloved. Yes, I beg you also, true partner, help these women, for they labored with me in the Good News, with Clement also, and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the book of life.” Philippians 4:1:3. The people don’t understand that the work of the Good News is a work, like being crane, machinist, tailor, musician, baker and etc. I can even say responsibly that it’s much more work than that, without ignoring any kind of different work, because it’s about the saving of human souls. To participate directly in the Good News it must happen by revelation and the approving of everyone. You must be wearing your gifts, so you can have success. That’s the reason I’m not on the court today in battle with Novak Djokovic for the title. There will always be two groups of people in the big team. One of them are involved in full ministry, while others participate in it with helping with whatever they can to achieve their targets. It’s important everyone to participate with whatever they can. Today, this thing is not understood by the church and that’s why the chaos is big. There’s a text, in which we find one very important message to all the participants in the Good News. “For if the readiness is there, it is acceptable according to what you have, not according to what you don’t have. For this is not that others may be eased and you distressed, but for equality.” 2 Corinthians 8:12; 14. Here it’s said that there are servants that were send, and servants that were accepted. Ones have the gift, the calling and the approve of the Apostles to serve, while others walk in the gift to help, to take care and serve in what they have. The Bible teaches us that to have equality in everything and no disadvantaged people, each must be faithful and true in his calling. So there to have traveling, acting, building connections and ministries in the Good News, there must be people that understand the big purpose and help and give in that. That’s very important for understanding, because the first can’t do anything without the second and other way around. Each must see his responsibility, place, position and to be faithful and true in the relation of the common work and the main purpose. This thing is directly said by Apostle Paul to the church in Corinth. “If we sowed to you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we reap your fleshly things? If others partake of this right over you, don’t we yet more?” 1 Corinthians 9:11; 12. So there can be movement of such a deed, the partnership of everyone in sync is required. The Apostle asks questions to something, which is often forgotten: “Don’t you know that those who serve around sacred things eat from the things of the temple, and those who wait on the altar have their portion with the altar? Even so the Lord ordained that those who proclaim the Good News should live from the Good News.” 1 Corinthians 9:13; 14. Many people lose their blessing, because they are not connected directly in the Good News, and like I said it is responsibility of everyone, not only to those who preach it. The material care for preaching is given in the hands of those who are not submitted to full ministry and have their daily reward from the work that God gave them. This way each must find his own place and to be true in his participation, so can be well not only those who sow, but also those who reap. “For according to their power, I testify, yes and beyond their power, they gave of their own accord, begging us with much entreaty to receive this grace and the fellowship in the service to the saints.” 2 Corinthians 8:3; 4

I expect to see one grown up church, insisting to participate in the Good News!

I bless your day and may God give generously and abundantly in the life of each of you.

Ephesians 6:15 “and having fitted your feet with the preparation of the Good News of peace;”

Everyone is sometimes asking themselves this question after they start to believe. Where is my place in the “body of Christ?” Many people didn’t even assume that in the same moment in which they were called by God to live in His kingdom, they were already placed in the place where God wanted them. The thing is that they can’t see it in the beginning, but this doesn’t mean that they are out of the body, even less out of the responsibility the Good News to reach through them to all the people in this world. You know that in one team, football one for example, there are eleven people and not all of them are strikers. The team is made from different links. Goal keeper, defense, midfield, strikers… When I was a teenager I was in the youth representative team of Yantra Gabrovo. When I started in the beginning to train, nobody told me where I should be in the team. I was running around the field like everyone that doesn’t understand how to play football. I was chasing the ball and I wanted to be everywhere, so I can present myself well and to be approved. Soon enough, when I got tired totally, I saw that the others more experienced players in the team were still fine, not exhausted, and have enough strength to continue. When my trained explained later to me that the professional football isn’t the game we play in the neighborhood with the boys, I finally understood what this is about. He explained that the field is too big for me to run around all alone, and doesn’t matter how much I want to be useful everywhere, soon enough I was going to get exhausted, and incapable of continuing. I’ll become ineffective and I must be replaced with someone else. He said that the most important thing, when you play in a team, is to find your place there and on the field. There, he said to me, you’ll be most useful and you will carry the responsibility for this part of the zone, in which I put you. Then, I continued training, but I was watching where I was most useful. Not long after I found out that in the defense of the team I was unbreakable. That’s not the most attracting place for a team. None of the audience sees how important your job is, but the good specialist knows, that without defense, a team would collapse, even if it has the best strikers. Usually everyone wants to be strikers, because when they score a goal, everyone cheers at them and they get the whole glory, but exactly these football players know well and understand the fact that without us, the people that support them in defense, they manage to pull this off. Really, the team has for a target to win and everyone participate in that, so it can happen at all costs. In the end the winning team is the one that learned its lesson and plays better, together like a team. The thing I want to show with this example is that in the church everyone has its place, where they can be most useful. Not all the parts are the same. Romans 9:21. “Or hasn’t the potter a right over the clay, from the same lump to make one part a vessel for honor, and another for dishonor?” Apostle Paul continues to talk for that to Timothy as well: “Now in a large house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of clay. Some are for honor, and some for dishonor.” 2 Timothy 2:20. I want to ask you something important. Tell me honestly. Which vessels you use mostly at home? When you have to drink water, do you always take the crystal glass or you take the clay, the normal glass or the porcelain one? I think that most people use the crystal the silver and the gold only when they have very important guests.  The vessels for daily use have the same value as the ones we use on the table for holidays only. But all of them are different and they are used in different times, as you please. “For the body is not one member, but many. If the foot would say, “Because I’m not the hand, I’m not part of the body,” it is not therefore not part of the body. If the ear would say, “Because I’m not the eye, I’m not part of the body,” it’s not therefore not part of the body. If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole were hearing, where would the smelling be? But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body, just as he desired. If they were all one member, where would the body be? But now they are many members, but one body.” 1 Corinthians 12:14; 20. Do you understand dear brothers and sisters how important is for each to know his place and be good equipped for the ministry, so he can really stand to the end in the calling that each of us have from God for the global purpose of the kingdom. You see how important and significant part of our equipment can the Good News be if fitted on our feet. I believe that each already knows that he may not be a striker, or a midfielder, but the most important is to be a player in the team that will take victory at all costs, because the coach of the team is Jesus Christ himself. Do you want to continue with training reading the word of God each day, so can everyone find his place in the team? I believe that this will happen with everyone that train constantly. You need very hard work, so you can get good results. I want to help you understand how important you are for the Gods’ kingdom, because He himself recognized and called you in this body. We’ll talk for the different positions of responsibility that the Good News has, and there each should see himself and find the place, where he would be most useful for everyone. Amen! I’ll finish with this chapter, because the burden of being translated will fall in the midfield. You don’t see them, you don’t know their names, but they work hard and tirelessly for God. It depends on them for this message to reach the English speaking people. God bless them aplenty. Blessed day to all, we pray for you to succeed in everything through Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 6:15 “and having fitted your feet with the preparation of the Good News of peace;”

The strength of the Good News is in the repentance and the forgiveness of our sins, but the proof and confirmation for the work of the Holy Spirit remains the strength of miracles and signs. When Jesus started to preach the Good News it was accompanied with miracles and signs: “Jesus went about in all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the Good News of the Kingdom, and healing every disease and every sickness among the people.” Matthew 4:23. When John the Baptizer was imprisoned in a dungeon he sent his students to ask Jesus a very important question. He was needed to know at all costs the truth about the Savior before passing away from this earth. “When the men had come to him, they said, “John the Baptizer has sent us to you, saying, ‘Are you he who comes, or should we look for another?’” In that hour he cured many of diseases and plagues and evil spirits; and to many who were blind he gave sight. Jesus answered them, “Go and tell John the things which you have seen and heard: that the blind receive their sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have good news preached to them.” Luke 7:20; 22. Jesus was categorical not only in His words, but the confirmation for His Godly ministry was through the strength of miracles and signs. When the students of Jesus took their place to preach the Good News after His resurrection, the Holy Spirit confirmed their words with miracles and signs too. “They went out, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word by the signs that followed. Amen.” Mark 16:20. The question that most people are asking themselves is, are everyone summoned to participate in preaching the Good News? I’ll always say. Yes! But the question is, are everyone supposed to go around the world preaching the Good News? I’ll say definitely NO! It’s a big mistake and a failure of the most Christians that were lied and slipped to believe that everyone must do that without looking in the details of who is sent and who is not. When we look carefully the work of the Apostles we’ll notice that not all of them had the same gifts and not all of them had the same ministry. We’ll notice that in the deed of the Good News along with them many people participated, and most of them weren’t even witnesses of the most things that the Apostles and their students did. The Good News is not a job only to those that preach on tribunes and platforms. The Good News is a result from the combined work of everyone, but each with his calling, ministry and gift. When each of us finds his place in the body of Christ, everything is starting to move immediately by the hand of the Holy Spirit. It’s not important people to guide you in what you need to do, it’s important God to show you the way, in which He will use you as a vessel. “God has set some in the assembly: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracle workers, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, and various kinds of languages. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all miracle workers? Do all have gifts of healings? Do all speak with various languages? Do all interpret? But earnestly desire the best gifts. Moreover, I show a most excellent way to you.” 1 Corinthians 12:28; 31. Yes, that’s exactly the question that we must ask to ourselves. Of course not everyone will be approved by God in this way, but that doesn’t mean that they’ll not be used and useful in the body of Christ. You are what God made you to be and that’s the best for you and the body of Christ. If you can’t believe that, your problems are just beginning. Many people always want to do things that were not for them in the Good News and they fail there. Sometimes we repine that this or that has not happened in our life, but that was just our human ambition, and not Gods’ will. This was happening before and now. The answer of God is the following: “But indeed, O man, who are you to reply against God? Will the thing formed ask him who formed it, “Why did you make me like this?” Romans 9:20. Let me give you an example from my personal experience. Long ago in our church there was a family that started to believe in God and they were an incredible joy for us. They grew up among us, and later God summoned them in a ministry. God sent them in a village near Gabrovo and there they started a church. They were so successful in what they did, that even the mayor of the village saw fruit in their work and gave them a hall for free, only and only for them to preach the Good News with everyone in the village. They weren’t very good preachers, but these people were gathering, because in their hearts had love. We went there to teach and we did our part of the job, but they were important for these people. Not a long time after, they got a call from the Faculty of Theology in Old Zagora with the deal that after that they’ll be returned in Gabrovo stronger, more capable and more useful for the body of Christ. Sadly that didn’t happen. We were paying a part of their finances that we owed to the Faculty, but the Faculty lied to us. It turned out that this is another pyramid that was created with a goal to attract more students to fill the church with people. Old and trusted method of Satan… Where are the biggest churches? There, where there is some school of this kind. And this that they didn’t returned to serve with us, but that’s not the biggest problem. The scary thing is that after they graduated and got their diplomas they stayed on the same level, I would say even worse. They were utilized neither there nor here, where they belong as servants. Today the whole family of five people is scattered in different directions and each of them searches the happiness in a different place. What happened with the people in the village? We even went there and tried to be close with them, they scattered too. Why you ask? Because those who were sent to them were deceived, lied and destroyed for the deed of ministry. It’s a sad story and for it shall never repeat, and we must learn from our mistakes and to aim never to repeat them. Where is my place in the body of Christ? I’ll talk for that in the next chapter.

Have a successful day and God bless you,

With much love Pastor Vasil Petrov

Ephesians 6:15 “and having fitted your feet with the preparation of the Good News of peace;”

Gods’ armor is not going to be whole if we don’t fit our feet with the preparation of the Good News of peace. The Good News of peace means good words. Someone have to bring them! That’s our readiness, to preach the good news of Gods’ peace throughout the whole earth.  Readiness means awaiting, preparing, training, dedication in teaching for this purpose. Let’s start with the beginning of the Good News: “The beginning of the Good News of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. As it is written in the prophets, “Behold, I send my messenger before your face, who will prepare your way before you. The voice of one crying in the wilderness, ‘Make ready the way of the Lord! Make his paths straight!’”John came baptizing in the wilderness and preaching the baptism of repentance for forgiveness of sins.” Mark 1:1; 4 John set up the beginning of the Good News of peace and the armistice of the people with God. He was preparing the way for the King and His Heavenly mission on this earth.

After John Jesus came; “Now after John was taken into custody, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the Good News of God’s Kingdom, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and God’s Kingdom is at hand! Repent, and believe in the Good News.” Mark 1:14; 15 Jesus said that the Good News is a challenge to each person to take decisions, which will really transform his life. “For whoever wants to save his life will lose it; and whoever will lose his life for my sake and the sake of the Good News will save it.” Mark 8:35 Nobody said that the shoes of the Good News will be comfortable for everyone. To lose the comfort of the earthly life because of Jesus and the Good News on first sight doesn’t seem something that everyone is ready to do. But when you devote yourself for salvation of human souls and their armistice to God, this makes you a winner inevitably. What you lose in your life and what you win? That’s the question that everyone is asking themselves before choosing to do something important in their life. “Jesus said, “Most certainly I tell you, there is no one who has left house, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or land, for my sake, and for the sake of the Good News, but he will receive one hundred times more now in this time, houses, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, and land, with persecutions; and in the age to come eternal life.” Mark 10:29; 30 it’s like the heaven took care for you to have everything returned one hundred times more because of your wish to sow peace in this world. The loss of one life always brings to winning another and that’s called a total change of our life. You’ll hear testimonials of everyone that were able to touch Jesus and they won’t stand in the truth. Jesus said that the Good News must reach all the nations: “The Good News must first be preached to all the nations.” Mark 13:10 The Apostles of Jesus were prepared personally by Him nearly three years and a half for this mission of their life. They had to be studied, transformed, tested in faith, trained and then fitted with the readiness to sacrifice themselves, their personal life, so they can devote in preaching the Good News. Apostle Paul, ex chaser of the church, after he met Jesus he completely changed his life and became an example in the preaching of the Good News. Listen to his words: “But these things don’t count; nor do I hold my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to fully testify to the Good News of the grace of God.” Acts 20:24. That really inspires me. Many people these days are holding their life dear to themselves in this world. They are still not ready to forget everything and to devote to this great deed. The other important thing is not to be ashamed of what you do. “For I am not ashamed of the Good News of Christ, for it is the power of God for salvation for everyone who believes; for the Jew first, and also for the Greek.” Romans 1:16. You can’t preach the gospel to a single person if you don’t believe in what you think and do. If you are ashamed that you’re a devoted believing Christian you will never give testimonials in the life of people that Jesus is your Lord. Some people ask themselves the question. Are everyone summoned to bring the Good News in this world? I’ll say absolutely, YES! The ways are different and the acts are different to be a part of this great deed of God. Each believer is participant in the deed of ministry and he should find his place in the body of Christ. I’ll be really happy if this is your most excited day in your life. Ask God to make it this way. Don’t wait for it always to happen tomorrow.

With huge love to all of you, Pastor Vasil Petrov

Ephesians 6:14. “Then stand firm, "having girded your loins about with truth" and having put "on the breastplate of righteousness,”

  Today the military industry is developed much more than ever. We do not need imagination to imagine this or that weapon. Easier in our minds will stand flak jackets than armor breastplate. It is like that, except you didn’t have the opportunity to see it in some museums. I am telling you, on TV knight’s armor are seen one way but if you must wear them they are too heavy. You will need breastplate or flak jackets to protect your chest when it’s necessary. And today, I will ask you something? Do you know what is hiding behind your chest, as a really important organ? The chest has the shape of truncated cone with wide turn-down. It builds the thoracic cavity in which the heart and the white lungs are located. Figuratively, putting this armor in front of our chests it will have the quest to protect our heart from fire arrows of the devil. Of course, we will not only trust to the armor and trying while waiting for the next arrow. We will take and the faith as a shield but we will talk about it separately. “Above all, taking up the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the darts of the evil one being kindled.” Ephesians 6:16  Our heart must be protected! From the scripter we understand that the righteousness is our breastplate. Then what is bible righteousness? Paul the apostle describes this strong experience as a permanent final of his life. “But, no, rather I also count all things to be loss because of the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them to be trash, that I might gain Christ and be found in Him; not having my own righteousness of Law, but through the faith of Christ, having the righteousness of God on faith,

       to know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, having been conformed to His death, if somehow I may attain to a resurrection out of the dead. Not that I already received or already have been perfected, but I press on, if I also may lay hold, inasmuch as I also was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:8;12 I am sure that you saw the main final which he makes. Not my righteousness, not that one which requires the law but the righteousness which is from God. Only through God’s righteousness you can recognize the strength of His resurrection. Paul the apostle teaches his young student Timothy as he says:”All Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,”  2 Timothy 3:16 He says that The Word of God will lead him in righteousness. The righteousness cannot be from you or me. It is from God which means His Word. No one will be able to justify or with some fake invented philosophy, or righteousness. Paul the apostle speaks to the church in Rome.” Because by works of Law not one of all flesh will be justified before   Him, for through Law is full knowledge of sin. But now a righteousness of God has been revealed apart from Law, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God through faith of Jesus Christ toward all and upon all those believing; for there is no difference, for all sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation through faith in His blood, as a demonstration of His righteousness through the passing over of the sins that had taken place before, in the  forbearance of God, for a demonstration of His righteousness in the present time, for His being just and justifying the one that is of the faith of Jesus.” Romans 3:20;26 God shows His righteousness in forgiveness of your sins through faith and repentance in Jesus Christ. Jesus is the righteousness of God on this earth and this truth is big. Jesus is the transform of God, and who believes in Him, and be baptized will have life in himself because of the righteousness which is He himself.” If you know that He is righteous, know that everyone doing righteousness has been generated from Him.” 1 John 2:29 When the devil is trying to throw fire insults, curses and despised against you, he will meet the Jesus righteousness on your chests and it will protect your heart from destruction.” Little children, let no one lead you astray; the one practicing righteousness is righteous, even as that One is righteous.” 1 John 3:7 When we wear the righteousness for breastplate as God’s children we will walk and feel well protected. We won’t be easier yielded to lies and manipulation from the enemy. We will know in Who we believe and what message we hold in our heart. Today you can walk more confident in Christ after you know that you have breastplate for protection.

God bless you and give you a wonderful day.

Ephesians 6:14 “Then stand firm, "having girded your loins about with truth"”

Do all people who believe and know the truth will stay and live according to it? Do all “church leaders” know the truth and are they really walking in it? What is the way to see does someone have not deceived from the truth? Let me give some of the examples which Paul the apostle speaks by himself to Timothy in his messages. Furthermore, here we will learn to understand and know this, does everyone who says that walks in “The Truth” really do it.  “But know this, that in the last days grievous times will be upon us. For men will be lovers of themselves, money-lovers, braggarts, arrogant, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural feeling, unyielding, slanderers, without self-control, savage, haters of good, betrayers, reckless, puffed up, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness, but denying the power of it; even turn away from these. For of these are those creeping into houses and leading silly women captive, the ones having been heaped with sins, being led away by various lusts, always learning, but never being able to come to a full knowledge of the truth.” 2 Timothy 3:1; 7 Ever learn is meant “believers”. Here is not spoken about the people from the world “nonbelievers” but about those who call themselves brothers and sisters. I want you to think and truly tell me. Have you met Christians or “leaders” who are selfish, proud, blasphemers, boasters, incontinent, fierce, despisers of good, traitors, heady. How many times have you tried to help those people to change and you have failed? Despite that you put a lot of effort for this. I will tell what happened to you. They had effete, exhausted, bored, tempt, heard you but still didn’t change. Why it goes like that: “For a time will be when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own lusts, they will heap up to themselves teachers tickling the ear; and they will turn away the ear from the truth and will be turned aside to myths.” 2 Timothy 4:3; 4 Yes, exactly here we can see one big truth. Do you know who cannot stand Jesus? Who cannot stand a firmed learning? Who do not want to walk in that? The devil, the demons and the people are those who are becoming their servants. These are not the kind brothers and sisters you want know but servants of injustice which brings abomination and wantonness. The problem always has two sides. See carefully and you will see that there are ones who do not want to listen and learn from the truth and others who become their teachers. Work in team, how it is said. Those who don’t want to change and serve God with spirit and truth are making or founding teachers by their heart. Then tell me, what are these teachers who do not please God but people? Of course, the hypocrites who adjust themselves and please people because of profit. “ These are sunken rocks in your love feasts, feasting together with you, feeding themselves without fear, waterless clouds being carried about by winds, fruitless autumn trees, having died twice, having been plucked up by the roots; “ Jude 1:12. Notice that it’s about the people who started in truth, but like Satan, they were not able to stay in it. That’s why many people recognize them like the old good leaders. Is the Satan the worst in the world? Everyone will say! Yes, and they will be right! But you know that he stayed so closely to God, so closely than any of us. He was a worshiped angel of God, leading the heavenly glorification, and yet he couldn’t stay in the truth. Do you still want to be his friends? No! “Turn away their ears from the truth, and turn aside to fables.” How does this sound? Turn away! Who? What? The truth! So, it means that they’ll turn away from Jesus. Can we say that there are people who were believers and will leave Christ! The Bible says to us that many people will do it, even leaders who started to love more the winnings and the gorgeous life than Jesus. They became proud and haughty, babblers without love and limits. I will tell something serious. If you recognize such people, stay away from them. You wonder why there are so many cleavages of charges and people! Don’t wonder anymore, look it clearly described in the sermon. “If anyone teaches a different doctrine, and doesn’t consent to sound words, the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness, he is conceited, knowing nothing, but obsessed with arguments, disputes, and word battles, from which come envy, strife, insulting, evil suspicions, constant friction of people of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. Withdraw yourself from such. But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we certainly can’t carry anything out.” 1 Timothy 6:3; 7. Why does a person want to teach other teaching and not to consider the wise words of Jesus? Because he can’t stand the truth! Such a person is proud, doesn’t know anything, have a sick appetite for twisted thoughts and altercations, do you still want them to be your friends? The divides, the discords and the quarrels happen from such people. Maybe they will want to make you guilty that you’re not like them, you stay away from the team and common idiocies like that, but if you want to save yourself run from such, don’t try to reason them, because you’ll fall into the devils trap and you’ll become like them. “Don’t be deceived! “Evil companionships corrupt good morals.”” 1 Corinthians 15:33. This truth is big, because we brought nothing in this world, and we can’t take anything. “But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consume, and where thieves don’t break through and steal;” Matthew 6:20. Do you want to overcome Satan in your life? Learn the truth in Jesus and hold it whatever it costs you. Jesus is more than enough for each of us. Buckle with the truth and that’s only the beginning. Do you still want to put all of Gods’ armor? Do you still want the whole truth and you’re not afraid to accept it in your life?

Ephesians 6:13; 18 “Therefore put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and, having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having the utility belt of truth buckled around your waist, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having fitted your feet with the preparation of the Good News of peace; above all, taking up the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; with all prayer and requests, praying at all times in the Spirit, and being watchful to this end in all perseverance and requests for all the saints:”

Today, we’ll also continue talking about the truth in which we must stand, because the Word says to us that Jesus Christ is “The Truth” and the Truth will make us free. There are many “truths” on this world and from there many conflicts, but the truth that we must hold and in which we must walk is only one. “When they had come, they asked him, “Teacher, we know that you are honest, and don’t defer to anyone; for you aren’t partial to anyone, but truly teach the way of God.” Mark 12:14 Look what the people see when they meet Jesus as teacher. The words “honest”, “don’t defer to anyone” and “you aren’t partial to anyone”. That’s an important example for all who want to teach the people to “The Truth”. They have to be honest in their hear, not to care what they’ll say to the people when they talk “The Truth that is from God” and not less important condition is not to please to humans or be bounded to them, but they have to be close to God, so they can evade the slippery and killing way of hypocrisy. When you are holding the truth at any means in your life you’ll meet many enemies in your path, but in front of God you’ll be clarified as righteous. “But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his works may be revealed, that they have been done in God.” John 3:21. Going to the light means getting closer to Jesus. When we act according to “The Truth”, not only to know about it, we’ll understand that “The Light” shines in our hearts and we walk in sainthood.  We must know that “the Truth in Jesus” is not only our good will not to lie, but that’s the Spirit of God that lives in us. “The Spirit of truth, whom the world can’t receive; for it doesn’t see him, neither knows him. You know him, for he lives with you, and will be in you.” John 14:17. Like a newborn believer the lie should be eradicated from your life. That’s why I don’t understand and I don’t agree with the possibility of meeting people who call themselves believers, but lie. We are born anew spiritually by God. “Of his own will he gave birth to us by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures.” James 1:18. Can a person be fooled and fall? The Bible says to us that a person can be fooled or deceived for a period of time. What happens with such a man? “Brothers, if any among you wanders from the truth and someone turns him back, let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.” James 5:19; 20. Most who I heard to quote these verses were insisting on the second verse, that they’ll get their sins forgiven if they turn the sinner from the error of his way. And they are happy of this opportunity. That’s more like a selfish protecting measure with which we want to secure ourselves that God will forgive us our weaknesses if we help others for that. Look this that is more important in this verse. “Will save a soul from death”, that must always be our motivation when we want to turn someone from the error of his way. Is there enough honesty and love in your heart for the people in this world? Today most of the churches and religious leaders insist on showing how right there teaching is, but the wish of Jesus is for us to know the truth and to teach people the truth. “I have not written to you because you don’t know the truth, but because you know it, and because no lie is of the truth.” 1 John 2:21. We agree with the Gods’ word that we can’t lie and live in a lie and telling that we are buckled with “The Truth”. God wants all the people to know the truth. “Who desires all people to be saved and come to full knowledge of the truth.” 1 Timothy 2:4. The question is: Does all the people that believe and know the truth stay and live according to it? Do all of the “leaders of churches” know the truth, and do they really walk in it? What is the way of finding out if someone is twisted away from the truth? On such and many other questions I will answer tomorrow through the Gods’ Word, which is truth.

And today I wish you a successful day! I bless you church in the name of Jesus!

Ephesians 6:13; 18 “Therefore put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and, having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having the utility belt of truth buckled around your waist, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having fitted your feet with the preparation of the Good News of peace; above all, taking up the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; with all prayer and requests, praying at all times in the Spirit, and being watchful to this end in all perseverance and requests for all the saints:”

Today we will start putting and using carefully in details each part of the Gods’ whole armor. I presume that you remember that we needed it for the evil day. In the day of battle it will work for us, so we can overcome all and resist, but not to fall again and again. The first and very important part in our life will be “the truth”. Jesus says “You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” John 8:32

Let me tell you first why exactly the waist is the place which is shown as important to be girdled or tightened with the truth. Let me give you an example with the weight lifters. While lifting more weights their weakest part is the waist and that’s why you’ll see them wearing wide belt not only while competing but in the training gym too. It helps them to protect their backbone without injuries and it gives them extra strength and confidence. When we speak about our inner spiritual person, we must know that he also has a spiritual waist, which should be tightened in hard times. In tense situations and in hard times the people that are fleshy and weak resort to the so called impulsive lie. The lie is an enemy and the opposite of the truth. The lie binds us in the sly webs of satan and puts us into a trap. It holds us tied and our behavior is fundamentally changed, because the thing that people call subconsciously understanding that I’m wrong is more like spiritual battle of our inner person with the inability to handle with the restrictions and sin in which he stays tied by the lie. The lie is from the devil, because he alone is the father of the lie. The Pharisees and the Jews heard the words of Jesus: “You are of your father, the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and doesn’t stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks on his own; for he is a liar, and its father.” John 8:44. Jesus tells us that each that lies and hopes that with lie he’ll do better and easier in his life is already deceived. Satan is the lord of the lie and he’ll try to teach you how to use this trick, so you can become his servants. Let me say it even more simply. The lie will always tie and bind you, making you slaves, and the truth will always hold you free in Christ. It depends on you, the choice, which you’ll make every time when it’s needed to tell the truth and this will be the measure of the Christ fullness that shines and shows your spiritual condition. In this way is defined the growth, the maturity, the health of your spiritual life. Apostle Paul inspires us with the words: “Therefore putting away falsehood, speak truth each one with his neighbor. For we are members of one another.” Ephesians 4:25. That’s the spine of the church, which we should protect, and I will call it with one word “trust”. Trust can be protected with speaking and doing the truth. Today, the church is enervated by the fact that many of the Christians are not changed and they don’t resist in the truth. Jesus Christ is the way the truth and the life! John 14:6. That’s the way that we must follow so we can adjust ourselves, because He will guide us to getting closer with God. The Bible speaks to us for pretending teachers that will talk sweetly lie and will twist the way of many people. “Many will follow their immoral ways, and as a result, the way of the truth will be maligned. In covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words: whose sentence now from of old doesn’t linger, and their destruction will not slumber.” 2 Peter 2:2; 3. Do not wonder why there are so many churches with so many unchanged people. The world vilifies the church today and the way of the truth because of the fake followers. Be with the utility belt of truth buckled around your waist and you will be really free and you will meet the love of the people of God. “Seeing you have purified your souls in your obedience to the truth through the Spirit in sincere brotherly affection, love one another from the heart fervently:” 1 Peter 1:22. The love in the church is created by speaking and doing the truth one to another. This world is full of lie and mistrust, and that makes the people suspicious and cold in their behaving. We will learn how to imitate Jesus and to protect the love between us in the church while always holding the belt of truth buckled around our waist. “Therefore I will not be negligent to remind you of these things, though you know them, and are established in the present truth.” 2 Peter 1:12. Today I’ll finish with my message with one rhetorical question. Do you know how God and the heaven servants will see you when you have the belt of truth buckled around your waist? Look how is Jesus presented in the book of Revelation. “And among the lamp stands was one like a son of man, clothed with a robe reaching down to his feet, and with a golden sash around his chest.” Revelation 1:13. We see that not only Jesus wore this belt: “The seven angels who had the seven plagues came out, clothed with pure, bright linen, and wearing golden sashes around their breasts.” Revelation 15:6. Do you want to look like that too? Then stay with the belt of truth buckled around your waist my dear brothers and sisters.

Ephesians 6:10:13 “For the rest, my brothers, be made powerful in the Lord and in the might of His strength. Put on all the armor of God, for you to be able to stand against the wiles of the devil, because wrestling against flesh and blood is not to us, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world's rulers, of the darkness of this age, against the spiritual powers of evil in the heavenlies. Because of this, take up all of the armor of God that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having worked out all things, to stand.”

To resist satan in your life and to have victories over all, you will need good spiritual equipment. How many of you have a hobby? For how many of you it’s a sport? You do know that for each sport you need specific equipment which has to help you in your will for victory. If you are skier and you don’t have the necessary equipment and all the protectors on yourself, you risk harming yourself on falling. I had that few years ago. With one very good friend of mine we went to the mountain to drive off-route motors and everything was very fun, beautiful view, fresh air, amazing walk. It’s one driving on the asphalt other is driving in the mountain on bumpy roads. I was driving carefully, because I wasn’t very well equipped nor well prepared for this pleasure. We arrived at some hill which was so steep that when I was climbing it up I needed to get up and lay down on front of the motor, so I could climb. I didn’t know the region and I didn’t know that from the other side that was not visible for me, there was a three meter deep abyss. When I climbed up on top I couldn’t react on time and it was already too late to make a turn to wherever, and the only thing that left me to do like an option, was to jump with the motorcycle right front. I had no time for thinking and spontaneously stepped the gas more and I did the greatest jump with motorcycle in my, relatively short, motocross career. For surprise to my guide after such a jump with motorcycle from this height I really landed well, but the reeds and the grass made me a bad joke. Touching with tires the lying grass I couldn’t even understand how I got on the ground and threw the motorcycle ahead, so I can stay unharmed. When I got up I didn’t feel pain nor that I hit myself seriously and we continued our walk. After we got back I felt that the only thing that started to hurt was my shoulder. The pain was increasing with each day and in a matter of a year it formed out in a trauma, which passed away in time. After some time we had other walks with the motorcycles too, but now I was with the protectors which were necessary for my safety. I had other fallings too after that, but the protectors were not allowing injure myself seriously. What I want to say with that. When we speak about the Gods’ armor in details I want you to remind you that this is only the defending parts that we need, so we can be safe from harm in battle. The soldier doesn’t need all that when he’s on the table, eating for example. You don’t need the protectors for motocross when you are in the pool, swimming for example. All we need is a good swimsuit. That’s why we have to know well what we have like protecting devices and weapons, which are given to us by God, so we can resist the tricks of satan. I’ll remind you again what’s said in verse 12; “Because wrestling against flesh and blood is not to us, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world's rulers, of the darkness of this age, against the spiritual powers of evil in the heavenlies.” You have to know against what and who are you fighting with, so you know how to prepare for battle! No one goes into battle to be defeated. But you know that one of the both sides will prevail. God says that if we do that what He tells us and if we protect His advices, we’ll always get out of the battle like winners. Sadly there are many naïve Christians who think that only if they confess some specific verses and they keep themselves away from evil it’s enough for them to be protected from satan. Others are even afraid to say whatever only because they fear that satan will overcome them. In both cases we lose before we even started. Jesus gave us an amazing example for that how we must win with God in our life. “For in that he himself has suffered being tempted, he is able to help those who are tempted.” Hebrews 2:18. Jesus won all of His battles and challenges of life and showed us that there is a way in which we can walk with Him and be more than winners. “No, in all these things, we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” Romans 8:37. I want you to know that before we start putting the armor of God in our life and take the spiritual weapon in our hand. Without the guidance of Jesus and the strength of the Holy Spirit in our life, we’ll look no differently than Don Quixote in his armor. Pile of iron without wisdom, strength and sound mind. We can become strong to strengthen in God and be winners not only through perseverance, obedience and love to God and people. The leader is Jesus and all must take an example and learn from Him. “Now thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and reveals through us the sweet aroma of his knowledge in every place.” 2 Corinthians 2:14

Revelation 2:7 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the Paradise of my God.”

Tomorrow we start trainings church, so get ready! Enjoy the day before it goes!

Ephesians 6:10:13 “For the rest, my brothers, be made powerful in the Lord and in the might of His strength. Put on all the armor of God, for you to be able to stand against the wiles of the devil, because wrestling against flesh and blood is not to us, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world's rulers, of the darkness of this age, against the spiritual powers of evil in the heavenlies. Because of this, take up all of the armor of God that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having worked out all things, to stand.

 Today we will see the reason why we need the armor which God gives us and how to manage with the devil’s opportunity to harm us cruelly. First I want to ask you something. Have you ever been lied, bullied, manipulated, left, rejected, harmed from loved ones, embarrassed, humiliated, abused? Oh, yes that is just a little peace of the devil’s schedule with his arrogant methods to harm you. Many people will see themselves in such condition! Do you want to know the main reason for that? These are exactly the wiles of the devil. Jesus says that the devil comes in your life: “To steal, and kill, and destroy. I came that they may have life and may have it abundantly.” John 10:10

Many times people are harmed because of the fact that they always wait someone and something to protect them. The uneducated ones put on themselves red strings in their hands, amulets, talismans, and a bunch of other nonsense as they thing that these doomed things will keep them safe. This is deception and abomination to God. Many believers prefer to bury their heads in the sand like the ostrich as they thing that no one sees them and wont harmed them only because they don’t want that to happen. All of that is deception and running from the responsibility to handle this problem. The devil, your enemy will seek the possibility to destroy your life and that will happen only if you allow him to do that. Apostol Pavel  teach us: “Nor give place to the Devil.” Ephesians 4:27

This is true! He must not have place in your life precious brothers and sisters. Don’t allow him to outwit you. He never comes in through door so do not wait for him. He will want to jump from somewhere and to grab you. That is why The Word of God teaches us that we must oppose him. Be awake and sober. Be sensible, watch, because your adversary the devil walks about as a roaring lion seeking someone he may devour;“ 1 Peter 5:8

Paul the apostle rephrases and gives a clear view, how the church can be adequate and prepare for battle against the enemy. Wear yourselves with the God’s armor, so you could stand in the bad day when the devil is attacking your lives. It is not said to run from him as you turn your back to him nor hide, nor fear from him but to stand and to oppose to his tricks.

Do not feed to his provocations nor agree with the things which he will say to you. Jesus was attacked by the devil in the desert who wanted back then to be doubted by His Divine and as many ways to make Him bow to him. Devil uses all his tricks so he could make Him but he couldn’t. Jesus was not temped in none of all his suggestions. And He was there in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by satan, and was with the wild beasts. And the angels ministered to Him.” Mark 1:13

The thing that Satan is dreaming for is everyone to bow him. Today many people make that by their will and many believers make it because of not understanding. In these two cases the result is one. Destroy, desperation, depression, illness, destruction.  The responsibility is yours to handle with him and the bible is giving us the right guidelines for that. Our battle is not against the blood or the flesh and that is why as humans in flesh we loose battles. That is the thing for which devil is dreaming, someone to bow him, they. The Word of God teaches us that we must grow in everything like Jesus did, so we could get stronger spiritual people. ”But speaking the truth in love, we may grow up into Him in all things, who is the Head, the Christ,” Ephesians 4:15

    

And at the end, before we get in the details of the equipment of the Christians for battle with the enemy, we have that encouragement: Because of this, take up all of the armor of God that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having worked out all things, to stand.” Ephesians 6:13

Taking, means that God gave us the way for success and we have to take it. Right? The reason is that we could oppose. It is clear that, if we do not make that it will become harder. The condition is to overcome and to stand in all because then the success will come! Do you want to learn how to oppose to the devil as the way Jesus did and to trick him over everything? Okay, then we will talk about this tomorrow.

And today, church, with much love I wish you a wonderful and fruitful day.

Be blessed in the name of Jesus! Pastor Vasil Petrov

 Hello Church, 5th January 2013

Ephesians 6:10; 13 “Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world’s rulers of the darkness of this age, and against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and, having done all, to stand.”

Here’s this verse again. Nope, you are not in the wrong message, we’ll just continue the topic from yesterday. We were at the point that before speaking for the serious things we must spare time to make the good basis for that. Children, fathers, mothers, workers, employers, that’s the something on which we must work before everything, so we can continue forward with confidence. The reason is this. That’s the daily setting that surrounds us. The strength and the hardness of one church come from hers strong parts, from which she’s build.  Apostle Paul says to the church that she must become strong in the knowing of God and to know His might. When the church is learned of how strong and mighty is God, than the church will truly start to trust in God for great deeds. Think about this. Everything that we want from God usually in a prayer is always impossible for us. Otherwise we won’t really search Him for whatever. Sounds selfish, but in the most cases I’ve heard exactly that kind of prayers. Today the church doesn’t know the strength and the might of God and that’s why she suffers from lack of desire to get closer to Him with confidence, obedience and perseverance. Today we must learn an important lesson, and the lesson is that all of our great dreams and unreached desires, all of our inaccessible points and all of our needs, spiritual or physical or material, are achievable and possible today through God. There, where we can’t, He can. “For nothing spoken by God is impossible.” Luke 1:37. You’ll hear many people today saying that they can’t handle with many things in their life, because they are weak. Yes, exactly like that! That’s what Apostle Paul saw and that’s why he appeals to the church to get strong in God. To start moving! Can I ask you something? How many of you broke a hand or leg? I don’t wish it to anyone, because I had it once, to be in gypsum, and that was a nightmarish time. It wasn’t exactly braking of a leg, more like rupture of knee connections. I was needed to be immobilized for one month and although I was athlete at that time, the immobilized leg quickly got weakened and the muscle shrank. I saw how one of my legs became weaker than the other one in just a month. The time in which I was immobilized was lighter and boring than the trainings for movements which I had to do after that. When the time came for me to move the weakened muscle of my leg I felt incredible pain. Like this foot was not mine. Like its said rephrased “you was not listening to me”. The procedures of the moving were long, daily and all the time. Why I’m telling you all that? If today we see a church that doesn’t walk in the glory of God, it’s not moving in the power of the Holy Spirit, doesn’t get strong in God, she’s already immobilized, plastic religious institution, which will only need helping devices to continue walking instead of living in His grace. We are not summoned for that! We need a church that lives, moves and exists. “‘For in him we live, and move, and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also his offspring.’” Acts 17:28. If one church was immobilized for decades from Satan and her strength got weakened, today we must get her on foot, because it’s time for moving. That’s what God talked to me this morning through this same word. This what the church needs today is not the next new thing, but walking, movement, strengthening, so she can be strong church that will be ready for her great victories. This year is the year of movement for all of us and God will do it through His Holy Spirit, but I want you to know something important too! It will hurt! That’s what the doctors made me to do, and it was painful but it was for my own good to move the atrophied joint. You know, the pain was big. Tears streamed from my eyes, my whole body was in agony only because of one immobilized leg. The Bible says to us the same: “When one member suffers, all the members suffer with it. Or when one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it.” 1 Corinthians 13:26. That’s the relationship and the collaboration, which I believe that we have to achieve together like parts in the body of Christ. Today church we are facing the challenge of broking the gypsum, with which Satan held us immobilized until now and to start the recovery through movement. I’ll call it this way: “The movement of the Holy Spirit!” Tomorrow is a day to arm up the Gods’ weapon! Have a successful day everyone.

I love you deeply, Pastor Vasil Petrov


Hello Church, 4th January 2013

Ephesians 6:10; 13 “Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world’s rulers of the darkness of this age, and against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and, having done all, to stand.”

Today we must see some things which will just give us the necessary push to trust in God for great deeds. Let’s look the beginning of this verse. It begins with the word “finally”. Why I’m focusing your attention to this word? So you can see things that you would skip while reading the God’s word. When for example you say this word “finally”? Yes, I understood! When something was supposed to happen and it wasn’t happening, right? When a student for example wasn’t able to pass an important exam, and after he takes it everyone, who meet him say “finally”. When you weren’t able to find job for a long time and you find, everybody will say “finally”, he found a good job. Even when we expect a child to be born, although we know the month and we can define the time for that, at the moment of joy we say “finally” it’s born! Here for example is how two common words on first look can have a huge meaning for us. Then, let’s look at the first nine verses and we’ll find out what the Apostle had in mind when he said it. His message begins with tutorials to the church in Ephesus, a city that is currently located in the confines of Asia Minor, now-days Turkey. Number one: “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.” Can you see that? The message starts with a talking to the believing children of Ephesus. Here it’s said that it’s not about the power of the prayer and the miracles of God, but for something common. The talking of the Apostle to the children is about them being obedient to their parents. It’s good when the pastor today have the same authority to talk in the life of the children of the believing parents and they know that God put him in place like that, so he can put not only biblical order in their meeting, but in their life as well. That would be useful for the church today too. In forth verse we have a message which is directed to the adult ones. “You fathers, don’t provoke your children to wrath, but nurture them in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” Let’s look it this way. Today each parent is also guardian to their children until they reach lawful age. Like guardian he has the full rights to consult, educate and to show the way in which the child must walk. But, look at the spiritual influence, which the Apostle has to speak in the life of the parents too. Words like “You fathers, don’t provoke your children to wrath” can only be said only by a person who already have the spiritual authority and he is allowed to talk in the house church to the children and the parents. That’s an important constructive requirement for the good future of every house church. Do you notice that the message of the Apostle is not missing anybody, nor big nor small and it puts the basics of the biblical order even before the start of the building of the church in her spiritual form. Why? Because, if there’s no listening and biblical order you can’t talk about anything greater, because the people won’t have spiritual ears to hear it! Jesus was often saying the words: “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.” Matthew 11:15. I believe, that it’s about “spiritual ears”, because it’s assumed that everyone have flesh ears with which they hear. The term “spiritual ears” personally I understand like obedient and wishful in their hearing. The next couple of verses are spoken about the attitude of employer and worker and how each is required to have the needed respect and honor one to another. That type of obedience must be in the life of the believer, so he can learn later to hear and the Gods’ voice! That dependence exists for God and we have to understand it for our own good.

And “finally”, yeah I already forgot that! Now you can speak to the church for getting strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Now, when the necessary recommendations and instructions are given to all, we can talk about how to reach to the great deeds of God. I want to tell you something church. God is not going to do more than that, what He already told to His holy servants through the scriptures. That’s why it’s important to learn step by step all of that which is right for God. The Word is saying to us that “Every Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness,” 2 Timothy 3:16.

Say with me today “Every Scripture”! There is no television here for big or small! The Scriptures are good and useful for everyone! Amen! I will continue more with this topic how to be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might tomorrow! And now I wish you successful day!

2 John 1:1; 9 “The elder, to the chosen lady and her children, whom I love in truth; and not I only, but also all those who know the truth; for the truth’s sake, which remains in us, and it will be with us forever: Grace, mercy, and peace will be with us, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love. I rejoice greatly that I have found some of your children walking in truth, even as we have been commanded by the Father. Now I beg you, dear lady, not as though I wrote to you a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. This is love, that we should walk according to his commandments. This is the commandment, even as you heard from the beginning, that you should walk in it. For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who don’t confess that Jesus Christ came in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the Antichrist. Watch yourselves, that we don’t lose the things which we have accomplished, but that we receive a full reward. Whoever transgresses and doesn’t remain in the teaching of Christ, doesn’t have God. He who remains in the teaching, the same has both the Father and the Son.”

The second message of John is addressed to “the chosen lady and her children”. Some scientists believe that the “chosen lady” is some special church while others believe that this message is addressed to a specific personality and her children. But today we’ll focus on something much more important, and that’s the message itself. We all know the Gods’ commandments, on which are the prophets and the law sitting, in which we have to abide. Jesus says that they are: “you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. The second is like this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:30; 31.

The Apostle says that he was very happy from the fact when he found some of the children walking in truth like it were told to them at the beginning. The beginning of everything that you do is always important. As we learn our children today: “If you don’t understand the things from the beginning, go try later if you can.” This thing can be seen well working in the start of the school; it can be seen in every new job or even in the beginning of the family life. That’s why it’s important when we look at our life to see this constant fire of love, which Father alone has preserved in our hearts through His Holy Spirit. “And hope doesn’t disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” Romans 5:5.

The things that we are going to remind ourselves throughout the New Year too are not new, but it’s important for us these things to get confirmed in the right moment. Many times we hear sermon which we heard some time ago, but when this sermon sting our heart it comes on the right time to make destiny in the life of each of us. The Apostle in one moment pays attention to the many deceivers who got in this world. And imagine them being from ages ago, how did the frauds developed over the time until now. The time in which we live today is time of hate and unfaith to God. We can’t expect to see love in this world and we will lose our time if we want to find such. Many public deeds and televisions will say to you that they love you and this is just a façade, behind which are their cunning and selfish goals. From his first message John says that there is no love in this world and it’ll be a waste of time proving otherwise! “Don’t love the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, the Father’s love isn’t in him.” 1 John 2:15. He says that we can lose everything that we fought for and everything that God brought in our life if we are not careful in how we sit in front of God. Many people start walking in the path of God, but they careless about the things that God already made in their path. Shortly after that they fail only because they weren’t careful enough in their constancy. There are places in which the Bible will tell us to be careful and let’s learn to pay serious attention to these warnings. Here’s one of them: “Watch yourselves, that we don’t lose the things which we have accomplished, but that we receive a full reward.” 2 John 1:8. Let’s say it understandable for us and I’ll simply rephrase this: I’m happy when I see that you are doing well in staying in your love that you keep to God. Now I’m asking you to stay careful and awake in this, what you already achieved like a results and in this, what God build in you so you won’t lose it someday. The Apostle notes that it’s not important only to reach certain goals and things in our life, but it’s also important to be strong to protect and confirm them in us. You know, it’s not easy to lose weight when it’s necessary. It requires a lot of training and diets and work on you. And when you achieve the results which you want, you understand that it’s harder to keep your weight than losing it. I think it’s the same thing here when we start to train our spiritual inside person. Have a nice training with fasting and prayer dear brothers and sisters.

I will give some directions for fasting and prayer so can our lives and future goals be given in the hand of God from the beginning of this year. James 5:16 “Confess your offenses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The insistent prayer of a righteous person is powerfully effective.”

There’s nothing more important for the church each of the upcoming actions to be preceded from fasting and prayer. There is big power in the insistent prayers which we present today to God. They’ll do each of our future deeds successful. Jesus alone entered in ministry with fasting and prayer after He was baptized by John in the river of Jordan and the Holy Spirit came upon Him. We’ll start the year with chained-two-month fasting and prayer. What does that mean? From today 2.01.2013 from 19:00 to 16.01.2013 19:00 we’ll be in unbreakable chained fasting. Each of you church can participate with one or more days, which ones it’s up to you, in the fasting and praying. The fasting is 24 hours, full, which means from 19:00 of day one to 19:00 of day two without any food. The prayer is undivided part of the fasting. That’s the biblical model of full fasting.

What we are praying for? We’ll pray for the Gods’ will, so we can have good success! Here are some of the verses which will guide you in the prayer.

1 Timothy 2:1; 4 “ I exhort therefore, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and givings of thanks, be made for all men: for kings and all who are in high places; that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior; who desires all people to be saved and come to full knowledge of the truth.”

Colossians 4:3 “praying together for us also, that God may open to us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds;”

2 Thessalonians 3:1 “Finally, brothers, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may spread rapidly and be glorified, even as also with you;”

Luke 10:2 “Then he said to them, “The harvest is indeed plentiful, but the laborers are few. Pray therefore to the Lord of the harvest, that he may send out laborers into his harvest.”

Let’s pray for the sick, the weak, the bounded by Satan, the unsaved, the dying. Let’s pray for our families and to present them to God in prayer.

Let’s try hard now, so we can see the glory of God in the life of the church, which means in the life of all of us.

1 Corinthians 5:7; 8 “Purge out the old yeast, that you may be a new lump, even as you are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, has been sacrificed in our place. Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old yeast, neither with the yeast of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.”

When one year passes and another comes, everyone call her “New year”. Church, we are at the doorstep of the new 2013 year with more wishes for good days. Let’s not forget that they are not just wishes, but a way too, which we must cross together. Good days, peace, joy and happiness will remain only a good dream, if we don’t put in these words sense and make them live in us and the people we love. Everything depends on us after all. Reading the words of Apostle Paul, which he says: 2 Timothy 4:7; 8 “I have fought the good fight. I have finished the course. I have kept the faith. From now on, there is stored up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give to me on that day; and not to me only, but also to all those who have loved his appearing.” These words always remind me about how each of us is required to cross his spiritual, purposeful path, while guarding the spirit, the soul and body without sin, until our God Jesus Christ comes again.

1 Thessalonians 5:23 “May the God of peace himself sanctify you completely. May your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” We are parts of one body and being these parts we can’t think only about ourselves anymore, but for the people that are around us as well. If we must be prepared for God, here the sermon gives us very good example with the dough, from which is expected to become a good bread. I don’t know how many of you know how hard it is to make bread, it requires mastery. I think that there are no better and skilled hands than Jesus ones, in which we can just sit and let Him to make this new dough from us. The symbolizing words for old yeast are about the malice and wickedness. Those two words are main barometer for the condition of each human soul and the condition of a whole society of people and the church. That’s why Paul also wrote in his letter to the church in Corinth: “Purge out the old yeast!” To purge the old yeast today means to pray to God to remove it from our hearts, to change the church of these days, uprooting from us all the evilness and impurity. We can allow Gods Holy Spirit to make in us something new like nations and like people. It depends on us!

Let’s celebrate together with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. Look at these two words, how much sense and life there is in them. Today the people in this world are so malicious, fierce and selfish in their intentions one to another, and in such the truth can’t rule. Sadly that influence of Satan entered in the church societies, where before time it was completely impossible. The modernizing of the church and the wish for success brought many people and servants to madness, thinking only how to attract more people. That condition of competing turned all of them evil! Today the people are divided to groups and scattered like sheep without a shepherd, but I believe that God will change that. This is a deed of Satan and we will stop it today in the name of Jesus. Our weapon is the love and we will obey the truth. Today these two words are not modern for preaching, because there are no people to follow them. But, I think that God has people like you who won’t change from the mutual culture and behaviour that can be compared today with the animal ways. Today I believe in that the people can create a new moral in the life of the world and that can become only and only through the new dough, which is worked only in the hand of God. Today He gives another blessing, which guides in the way of justice with sincerity and truth. Let this world get filled with His kingdom and let the world know that He send us. “He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory, but he who seeks the glory of him who sent him is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.” John 7:18. Let’s celebrate together and bring this God aroma in the life of people. Each have need of love and each have the need to give love. Allow God to love you and you love each other with your whole heart. That’s what is going to change the world to better. Happy meeting of the new 2013 year my dear brothers and sisters.

With much love to all of you Pastor Vasil Petrov

1 John 3:1; 3 “See how great a love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God! For this cause the world doesn’t know us, because it didn’t know him. Beloved, now we are children of God, and it is not yet revealed what we will be. But we know that, when he is revealed, we will be like him; for we will see him just as he is. Everyone who has this hope set on him purifies himself, even as he is pure.”

I’ve heard so many servants today getting annoyed from the fact that the world doesn’t accept them and doesn’t listen to them. Many other believers talk about the same exact problem. They say that they meet in the same way this incomprehension and when they were in the world as sinners they had many more friends who valued them, but after they accepted Jesus in their life, it went other way around. I think that every person has been through this stress, until he truly understands that this is something normal and natural thing. You become better, your life is really changing, your thoughts are not for theft, infidelity, murder, you don’t have selfish spirit in yourself, you’re not gossip, or such that makes all kind of intrigues between people, but the ones that claimed to be your friends, now avoid you. Yes, one time I was stunned after I shared the gospel in front of people that didn’t believe in a hospital and here’s what happened: One mother full of unclean spirits cried out and started to curse. She said that for her it’s better that her daughter visits the disco like the other children, to try everything from the life like the other kids on her age, to collide with all the difficulties, instead of following God. I really didn’t believe on my ears then, I was young and sure in myself that I propose the best for their life. She tried to take the word from me, when she was exposing the benefits of the world in front of the benefits while being cheesy Christian. I let her to finish what she was saying, and after that I told her in front of all! ‘If you are really telling me that you want your daughter to try everything in this world, you’re the worse mother in this world. Do you really want your daughter to have this kind of life? Do you want her completely to know the sin of this world and to be affected by it, hope God doesn’t allow her to be consumed by the debauchery and after that the desperation. Do you want her to tell you one day, ‘mom I’m pregnant what should I do now?’ What answer you’ll give her then?’ I asked her a few more similar questions, and after that she closed her mouth and she just didn’t knew what to say. After that I continued with the message of life, which really blessed all that were there and I guided all with a prayer for repentance. Let me tell you something that will really cheer you up! “looking to Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising its shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2 The truth is that when we start to look on Jesus as an example to follow, the thing that is going to happen with us is the same that happened to Him. Let me ask you a simple question church. Who is improving your faith? The only correct answer is Jesus! Then look the secret of success in His life. In His heart there was “joy” from the knowledge for the things that were about to happen. That gave strength to the Savior to finish what He started like He despised the shame and won the battle. Even His students had a hard time understanding these revolutionary moments, that were happening, with their human senses, when they strongly expected one thing, but always something totally different happened. Then Jesus told them clearly: “Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his lord.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will keep yours also.” John 15:20  Let me say again this big truth written in 1 John 3 “For this cause the world doesn’t know us, because it didn’t know him.” The world knows the people that are slaves to the sin, and you shouldn’t be surprised at all by that. I saw people that failed while thinking that after they start to believe they can continue the same life as before with a little difference. “I’m a believer already”. But after the things didn’t turn out like they thought, after they got persecuted for their faith in Jesus, and because of this that they took the right path and abandoned the sinful path, they decided to step backwards, and to change their way of life, which they have chosen. Apostle Peter talks about that in his second message: “For it would be better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after knowing it, to turn back from the holy commandment delivered to them.” 2 Peter 2:21 You can see for yourselves that there are no two possibilities, here and here! A person must always surrender fully: “Don’t you know that when you present yourselves as servants and obey someone, you are the servants of whomever you obey; whether of sin to death, or of obedience to righteousness?” Romans 6:16 The world didn’t know Jesus, they won’t know you too church, that is why we must not put ourselves in the state of losers, because you have already won. You are known to Jesus and the whole heavens, which is bigger than the whole earth! Halleluiah! If you still don’t believe me for the heaven, just rise your head up and you’ll understand that I’m right. “Therefore let us also, seeing we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,” Hebrews 12:1 Today you have many more friends, more than you can imagine and one day you’ll find out that it was worth it. Tell me just that and we finish here: How many friends Jesus has? Yes, look what love our Father gave us so we can call ourselves His children. All of Jesus friends are your friends too. That’s one new kingdom full with grace and truth. Have a wonderful day my dear friends!

Romans 15:10; 13 “Again he says, “Rejoice, you Gentiles, with his people.” Again, “Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles! Let all the peoples praise him.” Again, Isaiah says, “There will be the root of Jesse, he who arises to rule over the Gentiles; in him the Gentiles will hope.” Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope, in the power of the Holy Spirit.”

We are counting the days of one calendar year. For ones it was better, for some not that much. One had new joy, others survived throughout many difficulties. Some started anew while others went backwards like the dog in its vomit. Ones won new friends, others lost old some, but no matter what happened in your life, you must understand and to continue learning to the joy in God, because only the joy gives true, supernatural strength to a person to continue always forward. Useful lesson to all of us! In this verse is given one general plan, so can the nations of this earth get happy along with the people of Israel and to give glory to the name of God. Sadly, that’s not reality these days. If you notice the nations praise God few times in a year, and they have made their own holidays, which they celebrate with the different understandings of the things. But let me say this, we don’t live on this earth only in certain days, we don’t need joy and happiness only on defined holidays. We have this spiritual need for freedom and joy in our soul each day given by God. That’s why we are created on this earth, for Gods’ joy. In the beginning of the scriptures it’s said in the book of Genesis that God created the man in His image and likeness! Halleluiah! We are not monkeys, even if sometimes we pretend to be ones. We are Gods’ image! “God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the sky, and over the livestock, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” Genesis 1:26. If you read the whole chapter, you’ll notice that God made everything good for the man, He blessed him and said to rule over all.  What do you think it means to have dominion over all? To has everything? Yes, you’re close to the correct answer some even called it our loud. That’s Gods’ love! Do you know about people, when they feel love feelings one to another. Often, the cinemas are exaggerating with that too, but it gives a picture, which everyone knows very well. The man starts to promise to his love the whole world and to reach the stars for her, only and only to prove his love to her. Yes, it’s like that, God isn’t simply promising, He already did it. God gave His love to us, He already showed it, and whoever have eyes, he can see it and to be truly happy within his heart. “The voice of joy and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, the voice of those who say, Give thanks to Yahweh of Armies, for Yahweh is good, for his loving kindness endures forever; who bring thanksgiving into Yahweh’s house. For I will cause the captivity of the land to return as at the first, says Yahweh.” Jeremiah 33:11. The verse in Romans 15 tells us something else, very important! We will get full of joy and peace in our believing. Look where is the joy of the believer and where is his peace. In his faith! The faith isn’t just a calling that there’s a God, it’s something much more. “Without faith it is impossible to be well pleasing to him, for he who comes to God must believe that he exists, and that he is a rewarder of those who seek him.” Hebrews 11:6. There’s a prize from the heavens for those who search for God. Those who want His presence in their life! Those who learn in His commands! Those who love Him with their whole heart, whole soul and all their strength! There is joy, which can’t be described with words or deeds of justice in our short stay on this earth. God wants to see in you and me faith, confidence for the future world, because He alone promised it to all who love Him. Have joy in God, believe and entrust your heart to Him, He knows best what to do with it, because He is the One that created it.

Psalms 16: 9; 11 “Therefore my heart is glad, and my tongue rejoices. My body shall also dwell in safety. For you will not leave my soul in Sheol, neither will you allow your holy one to see corruption. You will show me the path of life. In your presence is fullness of joy. In your right hand there are pleasures forever more.”

Luke 11:1; 4 “When he finished praying in a certain place, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John also taught his disciples.” He said to them, “When you pray, say, ‘Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy. May your Kingdom come. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us day by day our daily bread. Forgive us our sins, for we ourselves also forgive everyone who is indebted to us. Bring us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’”

And today is a day, day, in which we wake up again and firstly we search for His presence! But, does it need to be like that each day? Many people think this, isn’t that fanaticism? Isn’t it too much for each day, each day! I would ask a question. Isn’t it fanaticism to feed each day? Can’t you just sit and survive the day without food? Yes, but I eat, because I get hungry, not like I’m fanatic. Yeah, I say that too. I’m hungry each new day for much more from His presence and that is the most common condition of each alive and newborn believer. Halleluiah! When the students of Jesus asked him; what is the correct prayer that we need to pray with? Tell us and teach us like John did for his students. Jesus gave them one perfect template, which contains every single need of the human soul. Today I will insist on only one of them, because otherwise I have to type all day. Look that the phrase; “Give us day by day our daily bread.” That’s important to note. Every day our soul is hungry for the Gods’ presence, without we even consider that. Do you know when a church looks like a skinny herd? Only then, when it’s not having the necessary food on time! She’ll be sick and weak. Nobody wants that. Every day, to eat from the bread means to be strong, healthy and full, energetic and tireless, alive and fresh.

Jesus said to the gathered Scribes and Pharisees; “Jesus therefore said to them, “Most certainly, I tell you, it wasn’t Moses who gave you the bread out of heaven, but my Father gives you the true bread out of heaven.” John 6:32. That’s what we want today from God, to give us true bread every day. Not the one that is with some kind of ingredients and leaven. Every human soul is hungry only for true bread, which is given from the sky.

“Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will not be hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.” John 6:35

“I am the bread of life.” John 6:48 – If you’re still asking is it necessary to eat each day the bread from the heaven, look at these verses too.

“This is the bread which comes down out of heaven, that anyone may eat of it and not die.” John 6:50. If you don’t want to die you must eat. There is one Bulgarian saying; “The food makes the fight”. Another verse is saying like that; “I am the living bread which came down out of heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. Yes, the bread which I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.” John 6:51. Let’s say it like that; “One man esteems one day as more important. Another esteems every day alike. Let each man be fully assured in his own mind.” Romans 14:5

I, personally, am from those who have the understanding that each day I much worship God and to treat all days, weeks, years equally. I believe that I can be happy and joyful throughout the whole time, each new day from my life with Him, the Creator of the universe. What better than that for Him to know that we value Him more than anything in this world. We accepted Him not only like our Lord and Savior, but like our Father too. And when you want from Him the living bread from the Heavens, yes, He’ll do it. Because the Word is saying; “Which of you fathers, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, he won’t give him a snake instead of a fish, will he?” Luke 11:11. And today, you can ask from God and He’ll give you. Want, and you’ll get, search and you’ll find, knock and it’ll open! Amen!

Celebrate the days, in which you are together on this earth, because they are very precious, but worship Jesus every single day of your life!

Matthew 7:13; 14 “Enter in by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter in by it. How narrow is the gate, and restricted is the way that leads to life! Few are those who find it.”

There is only one path that we must walk in and the Bible say that it’s not going to be an easy one, but will be glorious and if we walk in it we will be blessed with good success. So for you to start walking in this path, you have to enter through the narrow gate. When we read in God’s words for “gate” we understand these city gates that everyone just get in and out. Here is about choosing between two gates, and each one of you can take a personal decision, which gate he’ll cross. One is narrow and will give you an opportunity to walk in the narrow path, which leads to life. The other one is not recommended, because it’s said, that the majority is there. That’s the wide gate with the wide path, in which when everybody go there their life will be in great danger, because the path leads to death.

Let’s look in the sermon and see what more it’s said about this path. We have to understand it well. From the beginning of the placement of the basis of the New Testament way of salvation and so can be preached the God’s Kingdom, it’s said about prophet John, who had to start the preparations for the Lord’s way!

Matthew 11:10 “For this is he, of whom it is written, ‘Behold, I send my messenger before your face, who will prepare your way before you.”

Jesus said for Him! – Matthew 21:32 “For John came to you in the way of righteousness, and you didn’t believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes believed him. When you saw it, you didn’t even repent afterward, that you might believe him.”

Jesus talked about this “way” also, when he said that this “way”, in which John walks, is a way of justice. Notice that! It’s very important to know that there’s no other way of salvation than the one of justice. Many people want to make this way wider, because that is suppressing their sinner self, but God never said to do that. This way doesn’t need fixing or something for completion. That’s the justice way, and we all should walk in it. Not to preach, but to walk! Jesus said to his students:

John 14:1; 6 “Don’t let your heart be troubled. Believe in God. Believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many homes. If it weren’t so, I would have told you. I am going to prepare a place for you. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and will receive you to myself; that where I am, you may be there also. Where I go, you know, and you know the way.” Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going. How can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.”

Before finishing his earthly path, Jesus inspired his followers like he said to them not to go down from faith. He revealed them a secret that the sky will be a prepared place for everyone that follows Him. Jesus revealed His big love to everyone when He wished to spend the eternity with those, who love Him. Notice that! Jesus said it clearly that they know the way, to which they’ll go in the eternal life when Thomas said to Him that he doesn’t know about it, and this great verse is said from thousands generations before.

“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.”

 

Peer in Jesus, search His justice, love the truth and you won’t move away from the path.

Blessed day for everyone!

Ecclesiastes 6:1; 6 “There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, and it is heavy on men: a man to whom God gives riches, wealth, and honor, so that he lacks nothing for his soul of all that he desires, yet God gives him no power to eat of it, but an alien eats it. This is vanity, and it is an evil disease. If a man fathers a hundred children, and lives many years, so that the days of his years are many, but his soul is not filled with good, and moreover he has no burial; I say, that a stillborn child is better than he: for it comes in vanity, and departs in darkness, and its name is covered with darkness. Moreover it has not seen the sun nor known it. This has rest rather than the other. Yes, though he live a thousand years twice told, and yet fails to enjoy good, don’t all go to one place?”

In the book of Ecclesiastes it’s said something, which touched my heart today and I want to share it with you. Of course that the introduction doesn’t start very promising, but there are things in our life, which are lighter to bear, but there are also things that are really heavy. How many of you agreed with me? One of these things is mentioned here, the great ruler, and it’s connected with riches. It paints us a picture, in which we can see one thriving person, who has nothing that misses to him. Can you, even for a second, put yourself in his place! Now do you feel better? Good! Now, let the peace of God come upon you, because it’s said that those riches is from God and because of that I’m willing to believe that this thing comes by heritage or some other way, but not by sinful deeds. So you are a rich person, to whom riches are given by God and you don’t need anything more! Is that so? Come on, I’ll give you ten minutes to dream, I know you feel good like that! I’m sorry but I’ll have to continue forward and disarray your comfort, in which you just got in. In the next verse it’s said that this same God, Who gave you these riches doesn’t allow you to enjoy them! He doesn’t allow you to use them like you dreamed only for yourself! Someone else starts to feed from it! How would you feel now? Would you praise God again in your life? That’s a bad disease, to dream of being rich, because God have other treasure, which have bigger value for you from the earthly riches. Apostle Paul writes about that: “To me, the very least of all saints, was this grace given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ,” Ephesians 3:8. These are the wise teachings of Apostle Paul considering the riches. He says to the young Timothy how is right to teach the rich people: “Charge those who are rich in this present world that they not be haughty, nor have their hope set on the uncertainty of riches, but on the living God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy;” 1 Timothy 6:17. So a person can enjoy the riches, which are not from this world and to be happier than other, who have the riches of the world, but he can’t enjoy them. At least that’s how I understand it! How many of you have the power to say to the rich people not to be haughty! It’s a good teaching right? There are not many Pastors, who are willing to talk about that, believe me! Sadly the other picture is even darker. When the question is about children, our attention is getting sharper always, because that’s the biggest treasure that can person have on this earth. Here it’s completely exaggerated and it’s even on purpose. To have a hundred children! I don’t even want you to imagine that! That’s at least nine national teams if you ask me. But let’s assume that it’s true. To live more than a hundred years, because at least that’s how I calculate that if you start from eighteen years old and you have one child per year you’ll need at least a hundred years to have all the children. Wow, I’m good with the calculations right? It’s said in the scripture that if such a man doesn’t see a blessing in that too on this each, and his soul doesn’t satisfy with goods, and he doesn’t accept proper funeral, it’s said that even stillborn child is happier than him. Yes, that’s right. This child, who never saw a good day! Many people ask me what happens with the children that are not born. The Bible has exact answer for that right here: “for it comes in vanity, and departs in darkness, and its name is covered with darkness.” What it means is that the child never saw light in this world and his name won’t be understood by anyone. The people won’t even write it in their registers, the child won’t have ID, but here comes the good part. It’s said that even if someone lived two thousand years without seeing any good, this child will be happier than him, why? “Don’t all go to one place?” Yes, that’s the good news! All these unborn children go only to one place, where there is no sadness, cry, sorrow, but only happiness. “He will wipe away from them every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; neither will there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain, any more. The first things have passed away.” Revelation 21:4. Yes, God has a plan for each person on this earth, and the plan is all of us to live with Him forever! If you want it also just follow me!

“For thus you will be richly supplied with the entrance into the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.” 2 Peter 1:11

1 John 2:1; 6 “My little children, I write these things to you so that you may not sin. If anyone sins, we have a Counselor with the Father, Jesus Christ, the righteous. And he is the atoning sacrifice† for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for the whole world. This is how we know that we know him: if we keep his commandments. One who says, “I know him,” and doesn’t keep his commandments, is a liar, and the truth isn’t in him. But whoever keeps his word, God’s love has most certainly been perfected in him. This is how we know that we are in him: he who says he remains in him ought himself also to walk just like he walked.”

We can hear the words of John today too, which guide us to holiness and respect to God. In the very beginning of the scripture, he claims that if someone says that he loves God, he’s required to guard His words. Do you know how many people on the face of the earth claim that they love God, but nevertheless they don’t want to break up with their sinful life? They go like one, two, some of them even more times to church throughout the year, others only honor the holydays, and thirds don’t even bother doing any of this. There are such, who from time to time remember to pray, they look at the Bible only then, when they need some comfort, while their life is full of deception, envy, hatred, jealousy, wrath. When you speak with them they can be very convincing and they can even say to you that they believe and respect God. Look people this is not true. Not only that they don’t know God, but they cheat themselves into believing that. John says that if we claim that we know Him, then we should guard and respect, to trust and to be guided by His Word. Apostle Paul edifies Timothy: “But know this, that in the last days, grievous times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, not lovers of good, traitors, headstrong, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God; holding a form of godliness, but having denied its power. Turn away from these, also. For some of these are people who creep into houses, and take captive gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” 2 Timothy 3:1; 7! Notice the word “led”! What is the thing, which guides your life today in this unsure and dangerous world, in which we live? Where and to whom is your priceless life trusted, in the hands of deception or truth? Paul says to the church in Rome: “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are children of God.” Romans 8:14. The important thing is what spirit rules your life today. If you say that you love God, you will not want to make sins, because the Spirit that lives in you will bring you joy, peace and justice to God each day. “He will be like a tree planted by the streams of water, that produces its fruit in its season, whose leaf also does not wither. Whatever he does shall prosper.” Psalms 1:3. Here’s another truth told thousands of years ago. The green leaves of life are those, who are fresh and healthy. You know the health of one tree when you look at his leafs and fruit, which he has. That’s how you’ll recognize people too! You don’t look what they say about themselves, but what fruit of change they have. Do they bring this green freshness and healthy spiritual life like a mature fruit from the Holy Spirit? God wants you to be holy, because that’s the only nature, which can be close with Him. And because He knows that we are humans, who no matter what they do they make sins over and over, He gave us a way for forgiving our sins. It’s said that when we make a sin, we will know about it and it’s better to confess our sins, so they can be forgiven. Even from the first verse it’s said that if someone makes a sin there is someone between the people and God and that’s Jesus, Who will be atonement for our sins. This means that only and only through Jesus, God will forgive all of our sins and through the blood of His Only Son, and He will see us as righteous. Stay clean always in the blood of Jesus and God will show mercy for you throughout your whole life. Never think that with good deeds and your changed life you’ll win Gods’ attention brothers and sisters. Because the word says: “for all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God;” Romans 3:23.

Jesus is the answer of our life now and forever! Love Jesus, love each other and God of peace will be with you.

I personally love you and I bless you in the name of Jesus,

John 6:35; 40 “Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will not be hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty. But I told you that you have seen me, and yet you don’t believe. All those whom the Father gives me will come to me. He who comes to me I will in no way throw out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me. This is the will of my Father who sent me, that of all he has given to me I should lose nothing, but should raise him up at the last day. This is the will of the one who sent me, that everyone who sees the Son, and believes in him, should have eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”

I want to ask you something today church. Have you ever lost something precious and viable to you? If you did, I’ll only note that it’s very unpleasant right? The feeling is painful. If it’s something, which you need for example small, but very precious object, you do everything only and only to find him. Oh, yes, we all had that. For example, I had to hurry up for an important meeting and when I looked for the car keys where I left them, they were not there. In the beginning I didn’t pay much attention to that, because I don’t lose my stuff easily and I just checked two three more places where I usually put my keys. The pressure was rising with each minute only because I couldn’t find them anywhere. Like it’s said my heart started to hurt and I got worried a lot. In such a moment, a person usually starts to fantasize, not to think clearly right? I started to think that they were lost, and I didn’t have extra key! Where I could’ve lost them? Someone may have stolen them? How should I know! And I decided that I’ll lose less time, if I just stop, sit and pray to Jesus to open my eyes to find them. I know that there is such story in the life of each one of you and I’ll ask you to share it in our group of internet church, for me it will be interesting to know how you felt too. It was super tensely for me for sure. Suddenly, like all the miracles that happen, “BAM” here’s the key. Just the last time when I walk out I was with other clothes and the key was in the wardrobe in one of the clothes, which I don’t wear a lot and that’s why I never thought that they key could be there. Your story may be a lot more interesting, but believe me that when I found this key, such a miserable object, I felt so relief and happy, and I thought that I’ll fly from happiness. I want us to look again in this verse, which is talking so much to me today. That’s what Jesus says: “This is the will of the one who sent me, that everyone who sees the Son, and believes in him, should have eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.” So Jesus claims that the will of his Father is not to lose a single soul from those that were given to Him by Father! To guide them and care for them, so can none that believes in Him to perish. “That whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:15 That means each of all, who comes to Jesus is taken safely in the cot by God our Father and each of us is handled in His hands. The Gods’ will means something, which is going to happen. “For most certainly, I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not even one smallest letter or one tiny pen stroke shall in any way pass away from the law, until all things are accomplished.” Matthew 5:18 Yes, Jesus knows how to obey God! He already showed Him to everyone in this world. He showed us that in Him there is no lie and when He has to do something, which was said by God, even the death on the cross can stop Him. Halleluiah! Great Son of God! Amen! Do you think that after Jesus resurrected himself and defeated the death and hell, He’ll let Satan to take away someone from His herd! NO! Do you think that accidently He’ll lose someone on the way just from negligence! NO! Do you think that He’ll say that He’s going to protect us, and then to reject us because we were disobedient! NO! But when God already gave us in His hand, He’ll never lose us, because for Him that’s Gods’ will! We can’t be that good in protecting everything that God said, but to Jesus there’s no compromise, that’s why give all the glory to His Holy name. Be imitator of Jesus! Be obedient!

“Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.” James 4:8.

Jesus says clearly to all: “My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all. No one is able to snatch them out of my Father’s hand” John 10:29

I bless you in the Name of Jesus and I pray for you, so you can never leave alone from the safest place in this universe, Gods’ hand!

I love you, because the cross of Christ tells us to love each other!

Psalms 107:1; 9 “Give thanks to Yahweh, for he is good, for his loving kindness endures forever. Let the redeemed by Yahweh say so, whom he has redeemed from the hand of the adversary, And gathered out of the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south. They wandered in the wilderness in a desert way. They found no city to live in. Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them. Then they cried to Yahweh in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses, he led them also by a straight way, that they might go to a city to live in. Let them praise Yahweh for his loving kindness, for his wonderful deeds to the children of men! For he satisfies the longing soul. He fills the hungry soul with good.”

That’s one of the psalms, in which is spoken for how merciful and graceful is God. We should always try to understand the heart of God. If we are not aware enough with how He acts in different situations and how He answers to the people needs, we can’t have the faith and the motivation to ask Him for whatever. Let’s see this that there is a certain circle of people, who can call God merciful and graceful, and those are the redeemed by God. Yes, that’s what it’s said, the redeemed by God are those, to whom God showed mercy and they will give in their hearts all the glory to Him. Not everyone will understand them because they can’t see the great deeds of God, but the redeemed by the Lord won’t stop talking about how graceful He is to those, who obey Him. Amen!

Here I made an excerpt from the whole psalm, only the moments, in which you can see how the psalmist sees the Gods’ redemption of the people in their life. Follow carefully this;

-“They wandered in the wilderness in a desert way. They found no city to live in. Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.” – Here we have a disaster, and now the outcome “Then they cried to Yahweh in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses,”

-Psalms 107:10; 12 “Some sat in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron, because they rebelled against the words of God, and condemned the counsel of the Most High. Therefore he brought down their heart with labor. They fell down, and there was no one to help. Then they cried to Yahweh in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses.”

-Psalms 107:17; 18 “Fools are afflicted because of their disobedience, and because of their iniquities. Their soul abhors all kinds of food. They draw near to the gates of death. Then they cry to Yahweh in their trouble, he saves them out of their distresses.”

-Psalms 107:23; 27 “Those who go down to the sea in ships, who do business in great waters; These see Yahweh’s deeds, and his wonders in the deep. For he commands, and raises the stormy wind, which lifts up its waves. They mount up to the sky; they go down again to the depths. Their soul melts away because of trouble. They reel back and forth, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits’ end. Then they cry to Yahweh in their trouble, and he brings them out of their distress.”

It’s really inspiring to know that when you are in trouble, God is not going to get silent and He won’t say far from you no matter the situation you are in. All you need to do is cry to Him in your distress, in your need and He will save you! Will someone say with me, Halleluiah! There’s nothing better than knowing that you can always trust Him. Jesus says the same words of his Father in the New Testament; “Come to me, all you who labor and are heavily burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28. There is a wish from Gods’ side to help us and we have to believe that. You always should know that when you are alone He will be with you, when you are “tied with grief” He wants to set you free. When you feel that your life is completely ruined you are already at the bottom “close to the gates of death”, He will again stretch His arm for salvation and He will comfort you in his fatherly hug. When distress really endangers your life, you can count on the Master of the forces that He’ll always be with you and He will save you from everything. And how is this psalm ending!

Let’s see.

Psalms 107:43 “Whoever is wise will pay attention to these things. They will consider the loving kindnesses of Yahweh. “

Have a wonderful day church!

Luke 1:19; 20 “The angel answered him, “I am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God. I was sent to speak to you, and to bring you this good news. Behold, you will be silent and not able to speak, until the day that these things will happen, because you didn’t believe my words, which will be fulfilled in their proper time.”

Read carefully the story for the birth of John the Baptist and you will understand that the mother Elizabeth and the father Zacharias were devout, righteous servants of God, who after all couldn’t have biological children. Thank God that at that time there was no “In Vitro”, because then, there was not going to be needed a miracle in this whole story. In the story it’s said that Zacharias was Gods’ servant, who made everything according to the laws and the old customs. In one of the ministries, which he got by lot to serve to Him, and suddenly an angel that was sent from God appeared. The name of the angel was Gabriel and he was one of the serving spirits of God. Hebrews 1:14 “Aren’t they all serving spirits, sent out to do service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation?” And he was the one that was sending the important messages to the people at that time. See that in the Old Testament, Gabriel was the one that got sent again, so the vision that was given to Daniel for the last time to be revealed, because he couldn’t understand it. “I heard a man’s voice between the banks of the Ulai, which called, and said, Gabriel, make this man to understand the vision.” Daniel 8:16. Yes, it’s really inspiring to know that when God wants to say something to someone, He’ll always find the right way to do it. Amen!

And so! There was word from God for Zacharias and it was saying this: “But the angel said to him, “Don’t be afraid, Zacharias, because your request has been heard, and your wife, Elizabeth, will bear you a son, and you shall call his name John.” Luke 1:13

These verses are saying to us that Zacharias and Elizabeth have been praying to God from long time for children, but anyway there was no answer to this pray in years. How I know that? From the answer of the father, Zacharias! He says in verse 18; “Zacharias said to the angel, “How can I be sure of this? For I am an old man, and my wife is well advanced in years.” Luke 1:18 Have you noticed the word “old”! Yes, he says for himself that he’s old, but you can never say that to a woman right? Delicately and tactically he pays attention to the angel and says to him that his wife Elizabeth is in “well advanced in years”. That’s how you say to the older women with respect! Gabriel is sent from God to say him clearly not only that they’ll have a child, but this child will be present from God for the world, because he will be a great servant of God. I don’t know if this was too much for the priest, but here, he hasn’t believed the angel and he started to excuse himself with his old flesh. Oh, how old I am, oh there’s nothing to be done, oh, I’m so wretched, who will help me! I hope those words aren’t yours! Yes, today the people do the same mistake many times. God talks to us today clearly with his word and Jesus himself says that our ears are blunted and we can’t hear and our eyes can’t see. Nothing is said for our mouth, only that it needs bridle like to horses, so it can be stopped from babblings. For God babblings are words of unbelief, which we say almost every time, when we hear His supernatural word.  God says that He’s a God of miracles and he wants to do miracles in our life, but we instantly connect His word with our human understanding and we often hear ourselves saying: “God hasn’t made the miracle at that time” “Like God is not hearing us and He is late.” We can see how Jesus understood and He was talking about “his time” to his students like that: “Jesus therefore said to them, “My time has not yet come, but your time is always ready.” John 7:6

God will always come and send his servants on time, we only need an opened eyes and ears, so we can understand that. Because of hi unbelief, Zacharias was punished with silence, until the word that the angel said becomes true. His punishment was only for one reason! “You didn’t believe my words, which will be fulfilled in their proper time.” With one word, believing or not, the thing that heaven decides to happen, it will happen! Halleluiah! You won’t speak, because you don’t believe! It’s really better people, who don’t believe to God to shut up. Today the church doesn’t need the words of unbelieving servants or people, who speak babblings. Today the body of Christ needs people, who will trust in God for each word spoken out of His mouth. Amen! Do we believe to God for everything that He says it’s true? Yes, I personally believe! Say it out loud with me. I really believe that God is what He says He is! His word is truth and I decide to believe to each word that He says, even if it looks that it’s not coming on time for me, because I know, that God is never late. If you said these words of faith with me and you continue to pray that way, the time will come, in which you’ll see that God hasn’t forgotten you and He hasn’t abandoned you. Only Gods’ time is different than ours and His thoughts too! We must never forget that!

Isaiah 55:8 ““For my thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not my ways,” says Yahweh.”

Blessed day to all!

John 16:7; 11 “Nevertheless I tell you the truth: It is to your advantage that I go away, for if I don’t go away, the Counselor won’t come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. When he has come, he will convict the world about sin, about righteousness, and about judgment; about sin, because they don’t believe in me; about righteousness, because I am going to my Father, and you won’t see me any more; about judgment, because the prince of this world has been judged.”

Jesus was speaking to his students for the day, when He was going to be betrayed in the hands of sinful men, so He can be crucified and on the third day resurrected. “,saying that the Son of Man must be delivered up into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again?” Luke 24:7. Jesus was speaking about the final phase of the Godlike plan for saving the humanity, but the Apostles seemed that they can’t understand yet the idea for everything that was happening. They believed that Jesus is the Messiah (Savior of the people of Israel) and He will release them with Gods’ supernatural way. They saw Him to do miracles of healing and resurrection of dead and they were waiting with impatience the moment of triumph, when everything was going to happen like they thought. Jesus was giving them other picture, which they even refused to understand, because that was too heavy for their ears. They had to agree with the idea, that they’ll be abandoned by Jesus! He was going to leave them early, so he can send someone else called “the Counselor”. Jesus told them that it’s better for them He to go, because if He doesn’t, the Holy Spirit “the Counselor” can’t come. The spectacular plan of God for improving the human kind to salvation was He himself to come and live with each of them through the power of His Holy Spirit! For this to happen there must be New Testament, New way, New path! This path, God made through the obedience of his Son Jesus Christ. “And being found in human form, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, yes, the death of the cross.” Philippians 2:8 Many people don’t understand clearly the role of the Holy Spirit on this earth, and for that reason they don’t have jealousy and understanding to want it from God for their life. The coming of the Holy Spirit was Gods’ plan, as well as the birth of Jesus on this earth. If Jesus needed to go from this earth, completing the path of his ministry, that was, because God was already made a way through Him, for which even the prophets and the angels wanted to know more. “Concerning this salvation, the prophets sought and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that would come to you, searching for who or what kind of time the Spirit of Christ, which was in them, pointed to, when he predicted the sufferings of Christ, and the glories that would follow them. To them it was revealed, that not to themselves, but to you, they ministered these things, which now have been announced to you through those who preached the Good News to you by the Holy Spirit sent out from heaven; which things angels desire to look into.” 1 Peter 1:10; 12 Isn’t it everything that God made unique? His moves, the way, in which He acts, is always so confusing for the human logic and reality, because neither humans, nor angels can understand fully His destinies and intentions. He reveals His great plan step by step and that’s why His thought for salvation of the human kind even Satan can’t bring down. The role of the Holy Spirit is to come like “Counselor for the believed”, but for this world, He’s not. See for what He was sent! “When he has come, he will convict the world about sin, about righteousness, and about judgment;” The Holy Spirit won’t comfort the world in their deaths neither will tell them sweet words. The Bible teaches us that He will blame the world for sin! That’s not good and graceful word to this world. He will tell the world “Repent, for you are wrong and in your sins you will die”. That’s immovable word. That’s the word of the cross, the grace, which you heard from the beginning! That’s the truth in Christ. The sin of this world is not because they do bad things, but because they don’t believe in Jesus! That’s why the Holy Spirit will tell this world through you that the world is sinful and that there is salvation for the human soul only through faith in the Gods’ Son Jesus. The justice and the destiny are the other two things, for which the world will be warned and judged. Justice, because they must believe in the resurrection of Christ from the dead! “But now Christ has been raised from the dead. He became the first fruits of those who are asleep.” 1 Corinthians 15:20 and for destiny, because Satan is already damned and they have to understand who will they choose for Master. “No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to one, and despise the other. You aren’t able to serve God and Mammon.” Luke 16:13. Have you already chose which one is your Master? If you did that, then you already have the comfort of the Holy Spirit of God in your life! If you didn’t, it’s good if you do it soon, because Jesus is coming back victoriously for His church and it will be good you to be a part of the living body of God.

“For this we tell you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left to the coming of the Lord, will in no way precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with God’s trumpet. The dead in Christ will rise first, then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air. So we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore comfort one another with these words.” 1 Thessalonians 4:15; 18

1 John 5:11; 15 “The testimony is this that God gave to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has the life. He who doesn’t have God’s Son doesn’t have the life. These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God. This is the boldness which we have toward him, that, if we ask anything according to his will, he listens to us. And if we know that he listens to us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions which we have asked of him.”

Do you believe that there is eternal life? Are you sure that God is trustworthy and He will give it to you? Do you want eternal life? But that’s not just a wish of a client it’s a faith and conviction, which we follow! The scripture says that if we have the Son we have that eternal life and if we don’t have the Son we don’t have life within us. Notice that the letter is to the believers in the name of Jesus. It’s said that those who believe in Jesus have this life in them. “But as many as received him, to them he gave the right to become God’s children, to those who believe in his name:” John 1:12. Yes, if you accepted Jesus in your life God really looks upon you like his child. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:16. Now let me tell you this: To start believing in Jesus is one thing, but to believe in Him you must have progressive faith. This means that each day of our life we have to know and understand from experience what, is His will for our life and to walk in His path. “Don’t be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what is the good, well-pleasing, and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:2 Jesus alone says “For whoever does the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.” In fact what does Gods’ will means? How to orient in this, are we really doing His will? 1 Thessalonians 5:16 “In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus toward you.” Our sanctification and way of act also show our progressive faith. Do we are already the power of the Holy Spirit to keep it from sin or we are still on the level like we were before? 1 Thessalonians 4:3; 7 “For this is the will of God: your sanctification, that you abstain from sexual immorality, that each one of you know how to control his own body in sanctification and honor, not in the passion of lust, even as the Gentiles who don’t know God; 6 that no one should take advantage of and wrong a brother or sister in this matter; because the Lord is an avenger in all these things, as also we forewarned you and testified. For God called us not for uncleanness, but in sanctification. Therefore he who rejects this doesn’t reject man, but God, who has also given his Holy Spirit to you.”Apostle Paul says to the Hebrews that sometimes patience is needed in what we do, so we can reach the Gods’ promises. Not everything happens here and now. Hebrews 10:36 “For you need endurance so that, having done the will of God, you may receive the promise.” Patience! Patience! Patience! This is what we need, all of us. That’s the hardest part of our life. To teach ourselves to patience until we see the promises. And in the end let’s say these important things. If we have confidence that Jesus lives in us and we really are people that believe, who follow Him, we will start to want from Him everything that we need, no matters for our spiritual or earthly path. The result of our faith will be that He really hears us and He will answer to all our needs, because He loves us. What caring parent will leave his children without the most necessary in their life? Nobody! Do you think than that Jesus will do it? “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him?” Luke 11:13. Come on, start wanting from God in the name of Jesus. Don’t be shy and don’t be afraid to share and say your wishes out loud in front of Him. He is listening! Amen!

Psalms 37:3; 7 “Trust in Yahweh, and do good. Dwell in the land, and enjoy safe pasture. Also delight yourself in Yahweh, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to Yahweh. Trust also in him, and he will do this: he will make your righteousness go out as the light, and your justice as the noon day sun. Rest in Yahweh, and wait patiently for him. Don’t fret because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who makes wicked plots happen.”

To trust in God and to have joy in His presence, to do good is now good fruit of a heart, which is fed with heavenly manna (God’s word). When you are full with joy, peace and confidence, then you really do the right things. When people rely on themselves and they do not know the power of God they make hasty decisions, which in the most cases turn out wrong. God knows what is best for us, He knows the right time and the reasons for us to reach better progress in everything. 1 Peter 4:11 “If anyone speaks, let it be as it were the very words of God. If anyone serves, let it be as of the strength which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.” Isn’t it good to know that the most things that you do are agreed with the heaven and you waited the good time, so you can do something or take some life depending decision in your life. When you talk to someone, serve or preach, let this happen with power from the heaven, not just because you have to. “Commit your way to Yahweh. Trust also in him,” means to fully trust the guidance of the Holy Spirit for every situation in our life. That’s hard and it takes time and many lessons, and God will teach us to them. Lets’ become sensitive to His voice and don’t forget that He is the helmsman in our life and that will bring permanent successes for us. When we fully trust in Gods’ word, it’s said that He can give us the desires of our heart! Isn’t it great that with Gods’ power you can do more and reach further, even to make great deeds, which with your own limited powers it’s impossible? Yes, these are Gods’ promises, which we can have each day. The Bible says that with Him we are already winners. Romans 8:37 “No, in all these things, we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” Yes it’s easy when you teach yourself to walk with faith in His name, but it’s not easy at all until you teach yourself to wait patiently. The Holy Spirit today got my main in this verse! “Rest in Yahweh, and wait patiently for him.” That’s the hardest part. Especially to make someone to wait for God in this hasty world is totally unthinkable. To say to yourself wait, when everyone are hurrying up! Today our view for success borders with the speed, with which currently everything happens. In this speedy world everything seems to rely on the success - which one is the fastest! It seems that for God the things aren’t like that, because He always arrives right on time! Halleluiah! Many people are not waiting for Him, but they take the initiative in their hands and after that, they find out that they are wrong. To rely on God means to decide to trust him on 100% for the thing that He will arrive right on the correct time, place and will do miracles for you. Yes, in most cases we see people, who have done everything that they could, and after they see that with their powers nothing happens, they seek God. Here the scripture is talking for one higher form of trust to Him and that is to trust Him before we do anything. That’s called faith! Yes, to wait God when the things are getting out of control is a hard thing. Our flesh and reaction for self defense get activated and it’s doing everything possible to handle the things, and this really sometimes exhausts us. We can teach ourselves not to spend all of our energy in efforts to deal with life alone. Lets’ trust to Him and He will take the burden of our life. After all, He’s our strong father! Luke 12:7 “But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Therefore don’t be afraid. You are of more value than many sparrows.” Alright then, if the very hairs of our heads are all numbered carefully, we shouldn’t be afraid of evil, but we must seek God in our weakness and He will get us out of all the bad situations. Psalms 34:6 “This poor man cried, and Yahweh heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.”

Wait and rely on God!

Hello Church, 12th December 2012

Mark 12:28; 38 “One of the scribes came, and heard them questioning together. Knowing that he had answered them well, asked him, “Which commandment is the greatest of all?” Jesus answered, “The greatest is, ‘Hear, Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one: you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. 31  The second is like this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” The scribe said to him, “Truly, teacher, you have said well that he is one, and there is none other but he, and to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbor as himself, is more important than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.” When Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him, “You are not far from God’s Kingdom.” No one dared ask him any question after that.”

Do you know that there’ll never be a day like this one again? 12.12.2012. Interesting coincidence of calendar numbers right? Do you know that many people were never able to reach this day, and others will be born after it? Not like it’s very special, but one thing is for sure it won’t happen again right? That’s why I advise you, don’t lose time, but get the best of the day in the name of Jesus. It’s not necessary to wait something to happen, make the things around you to get moving. You can be very resourceful in this wonderful thing to love all, who are around you and to spare time and strength, so you can show it to them in some way. When we think about ourselves, what is the best thing that we want to happen to us, each of us will say different things according to his needs. However, when did you last asked yourself: What are the needs, the wishes, the dreams of those, who are around me? Can I do at least for a moment the life of someone around me better and happier? Of course that many people are doing it, but it’s not unnecessarily to remind ourselves that each day we can bring joy from the Holy Spirit of God in the life of someone around us. That would make us really happy as well. Now leave your needs and problems on the background, and pray today and think about someone else and let God through the Holy Spirit guide you in that. One of the scribes of that time asked Jesus: “Which commandment is the greatest of all?” They were used to live according their law and they needed exact instructions what to do, so they can be approved. Jesus said that on first place in their life they have to “love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.” What it actually means? To surrender your heart to God is important step in your life. “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:21. When we speak for the soul of a person, the Bible frequently compares it with life. The soul of a person is the one that is excited, needs emotion, needs daily spiritual food and that’s why the Apostle says: “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be healthy, even as your soul prospers.” 3 John 1:2. So, largely our healthy life is defined by the condition of our soul. That’s why our soul must be daily fed healthy. Then what it means to love God with your mind? This verse really tells us that we have to love and to strive towards knowledge for God and His Kingdom. We can see that in this exclamation of Apostle Paul: “Oh the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and the knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past tracing out!” Indeed the love to God will teach us to search and explore the scriptures. Romans 15:14 “I myself am also persuaded about you, my brothers, that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish others.” Yes, indeed it’s understandable. When you love somebody or something you start to get interested more in it. For example you start to study what it likes or what not! You want to know it better, so you can learn how to please it. And when you really love and you are ready to give all your strength and possibilities even in a hard for you time, you can do best for Him! Jesus continued and said that similar second command of the Kingdom is to love your neighbor as yourself. Not like God, because He will be the focus of our life, but as yourself! And here we can make a conclusion. The more committed you are to God, the more wish you have to know Him, the more strength you put in getting closer to Him with knowing the truth, the more capable you will be to love the neighbor as yourself! And the scribe said to Him: “Truly, teacher,”! Halleluiah! It’s good when the scribes start to wake up from their sleep! He really understood that Jesus showed him the correct and right path! He understood that to love in this way is much better from all the burnt sacrifices and rules. After that he received the assurance of Jesus that he isn’t far away from the God’s Kingdom. Amazing! If the scribe understood the scriptures and he was inspired by Jesus to search God in this way, for us it’s a privilege to do so! Somebody may ask who is my neighbor? Jesus was questioned about that, and the answer you can find in Luke 10:29, “Who is my neighbor?” Good luck in today and don’t forget that it’s unique, because it will never return! The thing that are you are doing today will be a good basis for the next beautiful days, in which you have the chance to live with the object of your love Jesus! AMIN!

Blessed day to all from us!

Mark 1:39; 42 “He went into their synagogues throughout all Galilee, preaching and casting out demons. A leper came to him, begging him, kneeling down to him, and saying to him, “If you want to, you can make me clean.” Being moved with compassion, he stretched out his hand, and touched him, and said to him, “I want to. Be made clean.” When he had said this, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was made clean.”

Jesus was in the beginning of his ministry on this earth and you can imagine the influx of sick, possessed, people who were coming with crowds, so can they get free from their diseases. That’s why He was serving like He was walking in their “synagogues” (place for gathering), and notice He PREACHED and CASTED OUT DEMONS. The preaching of the God’s word is power of salvation, freedom and resurrection. 1 Corinthians 1:18 “For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are dying, but to us who are saved it is the power of God.” The power of God gathers in one all of that. Some people call it the power of redemption! Ephesians 1:7 “in whom we have our redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace,” Yes, we met a lot of people, who reject the God’s word and for them it won’t have power ever in their life, but for us, who have know it and we save ourselves with it, it is power. Notice that after the resurrection of Jesus, the Holy Spirit was sent. OK, we all know that! But few people think that when it’s discussed about Him “The Holy Spirit” we understand God’s dynamic power. Acts 1:8 “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you.” That is why preaching is important. Because when we talk about His sermon, He sends us His Spirit, and He is Spirit of power, love and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7 “For God didn’t give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and self-control.” What is the thing that will try to destroy the devil in our life? He is not even thinking about attacking the Holy Spirit, because for Him that’s a lost cause. Of course he’ll attack our peace, but only if you let him. We must resist every fear and to pay attention to God and His word. The devil will try to attack us with thoughts of fear, unbelief, so he could bind, possess, depress, paralyze us. Everything is done with a purpose, so you could stay still. He will be afraid of you, if you become witnesses in front of the world for the glory of Jesus. Not having the power for pray, means you won’t have will to hear His word, you won’t have will to care for yourself, let alone someone else. No, we haven’t accepted Spirit of slavery, so we can walk in fear once again! Say it with me! I am not a slave, so I can be afraid. I am not slave of the sin, so I can be afraid of Satan. My Master is Jesus Christ the Righteous, Who made the worlds and send for me Spirit of holiness, with whom I call today! FATHER! Abba Father! I have Spirit of power, who lives in me and today I will live like a winner in His glorious name. It’s said in Mark 1st chapter that Jesus was saying to the demons to leave the person and they obeyed. You should know something brothers and sisters, the demons are afraid of Him! Just when they hear the name of Jesus, they are ready to go anywhere, they are even OK with living in a body of a swine when it’s needed, can you imagine that? How many of you want to share their life with a swine? Of course, nobody! This is an animal and this animal resembles something dirty. You will never allow this to happen. Letting in your room a swine, only because she had no place to live in, no, but in this moment, when you see that she entered when you didn’t knew for it, there will be a strong kick and an order “OUT!” That is what you are going to do, if you are reasonable. The demons don’t care, because they are dirty spirits. We must not be afraid of them, we have to banish them, because greater is he who is in you than he who is in the world. 1 John 4:4 “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is he who is in you than he who is in the world.” A leprous man comes to Jesus and says: “If you want to, you can make me clean.” You already know what Jesus said! The thing, He would say to you too and to each, who wants from Him! “I WANT!” “WANT”, “WANT!” Then, when Jesus speaks word, the Holy Spirit took this word and did the action of healing. The Holy Spirit awaits you to get filled with word from the heaven, so He could hear from you words of wisdom and faith. When He hears cry of faith, He’ll finish the job, for which He was send. John 14:26 “But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I said to you.” Surrender yourself in His arm and trust Him. He will teach you to everything step by step! AMIN!

Let also today, He to get glorified in your life, so you can find solace in Jesus!

Have a blessed day everyone.

1 Timothy 4:6; 8 “If you instruct the brothers of these things, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, nourished in the words of the faith, and of the good doctrine which you have followed. But refuse profane and old wives’ fables. Exercise yourself toward godliness. For bodily exercise has some value, but godliness has value in all things, having the promise of the life which is now, and of that which is to come.”

Apostle Paul speaks inspiring to his young student Timothy, teaching him to continue the deed of the ministry, “nourished in the words of the faith”, in which he was educated from the very beginning of his spiritual path. How does it sound to you? Nourished in the words of the faith! How much warmth, power and truth are there. Words of faith! Not words of reproof, correction, adjustment, discrimination, not words of human tales, but words of faith. Why do you think that the Apostle is proud with his student and loves him so much? Through the whole time he was looking him to feed himself not with human babblings, old wives’ fables (tales, witchcrafts), but with words of faith. What does old wives’ fables means and why profane? Can they bring you to confusion, cripple of our spiritual life? Apostle Paul thinks they can!

Matthew 15:11 “That which enters into the mouth doesn’t defile the man; but that which proceeds out of the mouth, this defiles the man.” Because you’ll have that, which you say like a spiritual person! Matthew 12:37 “For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

Do you know that I personally heard too many preachers that are not using the word of God like education, but instead they tell “stories”, “tales” and they think that it’ll be useful and interesting in their preaching? Wrong! That’s not a market place, it’s a church! Paul warns Timothy for that, because otherwise he won’t look serious in his messages and not only that, but his words won’t have the necessary audacity and power, which they would have while telling the teachings of Christ. That’s a strong teaching and good spiritual food.

Fable - fable is a literary genre. A fable is a succinct fictional story, in prose or verse.

Here’s an example!

The peasant and his sons – One peasant saw that his life is coming to an end and he wanted to give a good farming lesson to his sons and he called them to him. “My children” – he said – “I’ll soon die”. “I’ve hided the hoard in the vineyard. Go there and you shall find it.” And they, like they believed that there is really hidden hoard in the vineyard, after the father’s death, they dug out all the land of the vineyard and still they found nothing. But the vineyard, so well dug, gave ten times more fruit than before.

Does the moral teaching have anything in common with the food of faith? Definitely not! Seems good to teach people to something good, but in its nature it’s not! Have you noticed that in the fable there’s a lie? Who’s the father of the lie? John 8:44 “You are of your father, the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and doesn’t stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks on his own; for he is a liar, and its father.” That’s not the model of work to God and He would never lie to his children, so they can finish some job. The approach to good is twisted through the prism of the human thinking. Jesus always says, John 3:5 “Most certainly I tell you, …” We must learn to speak the truth, which makes people free, that is what the Apostle tells Timothy, and I believe to us as well. Here’s how Jesus talked. Example!

Matthew 20:1 “For the Kingdom of Heaven is like a man who was the master of a household, who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard.” Read the whole proverb! Was there any lie here or windiness? NO! Lie, NO! Teaching! YES! Then the Apostle says: “Exercise yourself toward godliness.” That’s what matters. There is a promise for those, who educate in it, not only for the current life, but for the future too.

James 1:27 “Pure religion and undefiled before our God and Father is this: to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.”

Feed yourself church with words of faith and you will have faith. Practice faith and you shall have miracles in your life! Have miracles in your life and you will be always happy. Have joy in God and I will say it again. Have joy!

Hello Church, 8th December 2012

1 Peter 1:22; 25 “ Seeing you have purified your souls in your obedience to the truth through the Spirit in sincere brotherly affection, love one another from the heart fervently: having been born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, through the word of God, which lives and remains forever. For, “All flesh is like grass, and all of man’s glory like the flower in the grass. The grass withers, and its flower falls; but the Lord’s word endures forever.” This is the word of Good News which was preached to you.”

Do you know that your soul is pure when you obey Jesus like the Lord and Savior, and God’s Word really sanctifies you! However, there is a result of the obedience and it should be unfeigned love. Today I meet so many people, who are consistently harassing themselves, I even dare to say they do it intentionally holding Bibles in their hands they shoot verses one to another instead of rising against the enemy, the devil, they hurt each other, without thinking that this will cripple their burdened spiritual life. Jesus says that love is our big weapon against the tricks of the devil and we can win only if we love each other and live in solidarity. Romans 12:10 “In love of the brothers be tenderly affectionate to one another; in honor preferring one another”. Let me say it like that, the obedience to the truth, the unfeigned brother love, will bring your life to huge love, which you will feel to all, and that will be because the word you accepted from God in your heart makes you have fruit. Think about it! New-born in Christ means born from one Father. That’s what the writings say. Ephesians 4:4; 6 “There is one body, and one Spirit, even as you also were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all, and through all, and in us all.” Everyone are supposed to be one, the cause is one, God is one, the kingdom is one (the body is one), but the churches even in one city, which of which thinks it’s better are so many, as many as you want! Even if they try to make a pathetic try to show unity, just never happens right? Do you know why? The truth is that they are divided, but they don’t dare to admit it! Today I even had a dream and I saw people in it, who I love and they are saved through our ministry, but for one or other reason they visit one of the separated with “calling” church in town. We had a meeting together and my heart was full with joy. Guess how I felt when I woke up! Yes, this was just an illusion, dream, something that is not there. And I found out one important thing today. Yes, indeed all these churches, which stay away from each other and divided from their selfish interests are one big illusion of Satan. People are asking themselves! ‘Oh, I want to start believing, but which party should I choose now, pardon “church”?’ People argue and brawl they fight and heap each other with epithets, holding malice in their hearts and the bitter bile, which eats them from the inside. They are unable to make a difference between pure and impure, black and white. They are blinded by hostility, having form of devout, without any power from God in their life. I don’t even want to understand this thing. Think about how nice it would be if instead demanding religious people to see people, who love each other, not simply, but hot from the heart. Today I can say that I’m really happy from the thing, which I see happening in “Internet Church”. I don’t say it to make a cheap advertise, but because it’s obvious and it’s a good example for all. I see people free from the sin, the slavery of humans and demons, gathered in the Spirit of God, in the name of Jesus, not even on one place, but loving each other with hot heart. That’s the Christ’s Church! What better than that? Pure souls, longing for more from God, having love, sitting in the faith with simplicity and mercy to all! Working hard, obedient to the truth, thinking and living like one! That’s a church! These are saved people! These are people, who will inherit eternal life. Because we don’t have who knows what time on this earth, so we can live our life in vain! “For, “All flesh is like grass, and all of man’s glory like the flower in the grass.” Yes indeed, if you have the Word of God in you, you will keep it you will get the Heaven’s promises. Because God’s Word is forever! Love each other with hot heart! AMIN!

I know churches where God’s love reigns and we will be in unity of the faith, living for the Kingdom of God and to preach Christ’s Word everywhere so we can reach together the world that falls.

With hot love, Pastor Vasil Petrov


Hello Church, 7st December 2012

James 4:5; 10 “Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, “The Spirit who lives in us yearns jealously”? But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” Be subject therefore to God. But resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Lament, mourn, and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he will exalt you.”

Too many “Christians” underestimate this fact and then they wonder from where so much demonical destruction is coming in their lives. When the disasters come they think that this is God, who is testing them and they wait everything to pass. But instead, next hit comes and next after and the things start to get out of control. Many people are dying from poor knowledge. It’s not a criterion that when you have difficulties it’s a 100% from Satan, and if you go through hard time it’s a demon that makes you feel bad. No, no, I’m not saying that. I say that we need to learn to recognize when we have a test from God, when the devil strikes, when we are under the influence of demonical violence, when we are guilty for the wrong choices, which we do every day, without first consulting with the God’s Word. Many are the things, which bring us down in this world, and that is why we need to learn to trust in God’s Holy Spirit to guide us through all our difficulties. The Writings say that God is jealous for the Spirit, who He gave us. Let me first ask you a rhetoric question church! Why did God give us His Holy Spirit at the first place? The Bible says clearly, because you wanted it from Him. Luke 11:13 “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him?” If we wanted this precious gift from God to live in us and God gave it to us, aren’t we supposed to be thankful to Him for using His guidance each day of our life? John 20:22 “When he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit!” When is God jealous for the Holy Spirit, Who lives in us? John 14:26 “But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I said to you.”  When God sees that we don’t care and we don’t look for daily work of the Spirit in our life, God knows that through Him, He can teach us everything even to how to resist Satan. There is a lot easier way to resist Satan from the praying, the call and the fast for many days. Not like it shouldn’t be done when the Holy Spirit guides us into it. I’m just saying that our daily fight depends mostly of our obedience to God and the guidance of the Holy Spirit in our life. “Be subject therefore to God. But resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” The devil will flee from your life when he sees that you are daily obeying God. The devil will try to get you close with the world, so you can get back to your old nature and to fall to at least one of the thousands temptations. That is why the writings say that the friendship with the world is against God, and no doubts against His Spirit. Turns out that this way we get in a bad position and the demons are waiting only for that, so they can access our life. Here’s the next moment: “Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.” The sinners can’t be in the God’s presence even if they are servants, who claim that they walk with God. Jesus says that we’ll know them from their deeds. The double-minded are also obstacle for themselves. They resemble the oceanic tides! They are always unstable. They speak one, do other. They are ashamed from what they do, but they don’t have the power to say no to the sin. That’s why “sinners” and “double-minded” are put together. And so, if we don’t want to make God jealous, let’s start walking into His advises. Here are some useful: “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” Pray today God Holy Spirit to test your hearts for pride. Not what are people saying about you or what you think you are! Allow the Holy Spirit to show you that. Sure time will pass, but you have to know if you are humble before God or not. If you don’t walk in humility the recipe is repentance and change. Humility means this kind of obedience to God, which separates you from the sin of the world. Because the condition is: “Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he will exalt you.”

A lot of work is waiting! Blessings!

Hello Church, 6st December 2012

Mark 2:21; 22 “No one sews a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, or else the patch shrinks and the new tears away from the old, and a worse hole is made. No one puts new wine into old wineskins, or else the new wine will burst the skins, and the wine pours out, and the skins will be destroyed; but they put new wine into fresh wineskins.”

Let’s cheer up today church with two comparisons, which Jesus did while He was surrounded by John’s students and the Pharisees. I’ll give one explanation, because not all today in 21st century knows what unshrunk cloth is, so how we’ll find out what the comparison that Jesus gives means? It’s like saying to old people that I tried to put on old computer, that have almost enough memory and speed for Win 95, Win XP. They won’t really get what I mean.

Unshrunk cloth is cloth, made by thickening. Thickening is a technological process, in which the woolen cloth reaches each characteristic solid type, solid touch, and some stabilization. For the thickening the woolen fiber are very important structure.

Let us look on that sermon from this point of view.

On the first place Jesus says that nobody should be that stupid to sew a raw cloth on an old garment. Why? Because the place that it should fill up or fix up will separate from the garment and it will become even worse. It’s not reasonable without any forging, without the process of recovery, healing, called also “thickening” to let sorrowed, people with unforgiving spirit, rebels, confused and overtaken, more like people without repentance, come and join the church. You know that all starting from John the Baptist, Jesus, the Apostles, their students, preached the kingdom of God, like they said to people to repent. Important condition for the healing is the repentance. You can say that its priority is big.  The patching in the church environment has never given better result, but it becomes worse. That’s why today the church needs total healing in each aspect. Without the process of healing and recovery we will never be able to make one healthy estate from people, but we’ll have premise for the next separation.

The second thing that Jesus says in analogy is the new teaching with new wine and to the old people with old wineskins. The old wine, boiled, can stay in old wineskin, but the new wine that ferments, if it’s poured in an old wineskin it will blow it. This proverb says that for the God ideas that are in this world we need new wineskins, which are more elastic and can handle a full fermentation, or people, who have mind and heart to catch the new truth. When the mind of a person is busy with old ideas, thoughts, feelings, the new can’t get to him, in other words in the old forms you can’t expect to have power for great deeds. That’s why for us is important to know that each time when we pour from the new whine, the old wineskins won’t be able to get it. Let me say this too that old wineskin doesn’t mean old believer. More like dyed-in-the-wool and undeveloped, worn out! The thing that can happen to them is to blow up. The sermon says: Psalms 51:10 “Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a right spirit within me.” Ephesians 4:21; 24 “If indeed you heard him, and were taught in him, even as truth is in Jesus: that you put away, as concerning your former way of life, the old man, that grows corrupt after the lusts of deceit; and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new man, who in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of truth.”

Have you ever heard for the saying: “To burst with anger!” Do you know how many “believers” are bursting with anger when they hear about the fresh things that God do! Instead of catching them like Jesus says, the new thing that God does and to be happy with the others, they just get themselves involved with dumb idols(dead paintings made by humans or dead spiritually humans) and they sit in anger and pain. You can hardly help such people. Pour the new wine and put it in new wineskins and there won’t be problems, and Jesus knows what He says! Glory to His name!

Have a blessed day in Christ,

1 Corinthians 7:23 “You were bought with a price. Don’t become bondservants of men.”

The slavery is a bad thing. You can be a slave to the sin, the death and to humans. To be a bondservant to someone is as scary as the others. Paul says to the church that they should not become slaves to humans, because they were bought with a price. Jesus shed his blood for our sins and he paid the price for our freedom. AMIN! He took the power over the death and he won over hell, so he can free us from any kind of slavery. Revelation 1:18 “I was dead, and behold, I am alive forever more. Amen. I have the keys of Death and of Hades.” If God freed you from sin and death, you must never become a slave to human ambitions, tales and fake brothers. The people forget that they can become an easy prey to humans that are scammers, because they are not awakened to prevent that. But the Bible says that there will be many people with perverted mind, who will want to make us their slaves.

Proverbs 1:29; 33 “Because they hated knowledge, and didn’t choose the fear of Yahweh. They wanted none of my counsel. They despised all my reproof. Therefore they will eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own schemes. For the backsliding of the simple will kill them. The careless ease of fools will destroy them. But whoever listens to me will dwell securely, and will be at ease, without fear of harm.”

If you fall to the hands of imposters, the thing that can happen to you at the first place is to stop listening to advices, to start despising the conviction like a version for your release, and in the end you won’t have fear from God, and you won’t be able to understand what is that. Then you’ll start walking in the way of the impure and you’ll dive in their tales instead of staying hardly in this that you accepted from the beginning. Don’t get attached to their nice and sweet words, not even to their fake humility. Seek the knowledge from God and the riches of His wisdom. Get rich in Him!

Romans 11:33; 36 “Oh the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and the knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past tracing out! “For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counsellor?” “Or who has first given to him, and it will be repaid to him again?” For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things. To him be the glory for ever! Amen.”

Let me inspire you in that. Everything is from God! The freedom, the salvation, the healing, your sanctification, your destiny, everything is from God. Everything will happen in your life trough Him! Trust Him and surrender everything into His hand and the most important thing that we have to know about Him is that everything happens for Him. He made everything for His glory. There is no one like Him! If you understand that, there’s no one that can take you into human deceptions, but you will glorify God with a heart that is truly free in Him! AMIN! Be free!

Revelation 1:11; 18 “What you see, write in a book and send to the seven assemblies: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.” I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. Having turned, I saw seven golden lamp stands. And among the lamp stands was one like a son of man, clothed with a robe reaching down to his feet, and with a golden sash around his chest. His head and his hair were white as white wool, like snow. His eyes were like a flame of fire. His feet were like burnished brass, as if it had been refined in a furnace. His voice was like the voice of many waters. He had seven stars in his right hand. Out of his mouth proceeded a sharp two-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining at its brightest. When I saw him, I fell at his feet like a dead man. He laid his right hand on me, saying, “Don’t be afraid. I am the first and the last, and the Living one. I was dead, and behold, I am alive forever more. Amen. I have the keys of Death and of Hades.”

If you woke up this morning and outside is white from the snow, don’t wonder, but know that the winter has come. There are people that don’t like the winter, because of the cold. I have to admit, winter is not my favorite either. No matters, there is always something beautiful in everything, which God created and I want to glorify him today for the beautiful white cover, which he gave us from the sky for all of us. I thank God for the last night, because I was able to talk with big part of the church and we spent an amazing time together. I had strong wish to share the things that burned in my heart, and to communicate with the God’s church, the people I love, that’s the priority of my life. Meeting with the church is like having a meeting with God. Jesus says that separated from Him we can’t do anything, and this means separation form Christ’s church. This morning I don’t want to teach, I’ll do it this night at the show “In the world of miracles”. Today I want to see trough John’s eyes and to see what he saw. Look at his description when he sees Jesus! Remember it well, because that can be your first view, when you meet him one day. The body of Jesus was covered and that’s the garment of holiness, and the golden belt around his waist clearly shows the royal power, which He acquired like God’s Son. When we take a look at the head and the hair, we see the comparison that John makes, definitely white as snow and wool. You see, when you think about it a little, even in the snow there’s good. Its freshness, beauty, purity, sparkle and in all this shape, His eyes! How important are the eyes of one person? That’s the window to His soul. They can be very different showing clearly the state of every person. When they are sad, everyone notices it, when they shine, you understand that this person is happy, when they can’t look you, it’s clear that somebody lied. Let’s see the eyes of Jesus! They are compared with a flame of fire. This really speaks a lot. The irradiation of confidence, purity and holiness, the piercing eyes of love and at the same moment they speak about the number of qualities, which God’s Son have and it’s clear that even John couldn’t describe it fully. It’s understandable! The eyes talk a lot. The feet of Jesus express the dignity, because of the path He passed. His voice is like voice of many waters. Makes me thing about the power of the waters and their sound! Once with my wife we were in Switzerland in a region with a huge waterfall. Not as big as the Niagara’s, but it was also a big attraction. We were able to get close to it and while the waters were talking we were silent. Everyone got speechless in the feet of the strong waters, which were falling with a lightning power and you feel so small and helpless, absorbed by the sound. The voice of God will absorb each of our wishes for justification or to say how right we are. We’ll become speechless in His presence. Sometimes, when the Holy Spirit visits us strongly, I don’t want to talk, to sing, even to move, the best you can do is to stay in His presence and to surrender fully. Halleluiah! From the mouth of Jesus it’s said that this great sword comes out, which is the God’s word, which is giving us so much power today against the enemy. And His face, yes His face is hard to be described. But it can be if you try to imagine it. Remember the sunniest day of your life. The sun trap, like people say. The time when the sun is hottest! Have you ever thought about seeing it in such moment, so you can see why it’s so strong? Never! Usually you run to find shade and a place to hide from it. John saw something similar! “When I saw him, I fell at his feet like a dead man.” That’s the pose, in which everyone will be when they meet Him. If that happened to John, why should I think that we’ll stay straight in our whole dignity? Every knee will bow down before Him and each language will confess that He is the Lord. Jesus didn’t let him stay on the ground for long, but again He settled him down and said: “Don’t be afraid. I am the first and the last, and the Living one. I was dead, and behold, I am alive forever more. Amen. I have the keys of Death and of Hades.” Do you want that to be your father forever! Definitely, it’s Him! And I’ll never let the sin to take over me, because the seed in me says: “No, you’re God’s son.” You are sons and daughters of God don’t be afraid of the sin, but win over it with the help of the Holy Spirit, which was given to you by Jesus for these times. Be holy like He is!

Have a beautiful day!

Mark 4:37; 41 “A big wind storm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so much that the boat was already filled. He himself was in the stern, asleep on the cushion, and they woke him up, and told him, “Teacher, don’t you care that we are dying?” He awoke, and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” The wind ceased, and there was a great calm. He said to them, “Why are you so afraid? How is it that you have no faith?” They were greatly afraid, and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?”

That’s one true story, which can be a great reflection of our spiritual life. When the storms swoop in your life usually it’s being under a test and under a threat. When something threatens you usually the devil uses this moment and he’s hurrying up to sent a spirit of doubt and fear, so they could help you become vulnerable and to fail. The boat is our life, which is floating in the open waters of this huge ocean, the world. Many people are naïve and they always think that storm can’t reach them. ‘The storms are for somebody else, but my ship looks very promising’. That usually are the stupid people, who never prepare for hard times and they never look at the faults of their boat, when the time is proper for that. But when the storm comes, everything goes wrong. Fear and panic come to the ship. When the boat of your life starts to get filled with water and you can’t handle the situation with your own strength, you understand that you’re in trouble. Look what was Jesus doing for example in such a moment, in the raging storm He was calmly sleeping on the back of the boat where everything seemed right, not only that but He was asleep on the cushion, which is even more comfortable. Do you want my brothers and sisters to sleep with peace and not to be afraid from the storm when it comes? Do you want this comfortable cushion, which is the symbol of comfort in hard time? Do you wish to relax in God’s right hand and not to get worried about your problems? OK then, here’s the example that you must follow. The Apostles, the most fearsome fishermen scared by the raging see, now calling for help. The situation was really scary even for the professionals. In other moments like that they seemed to handle pretty well themselves, but now the things went out of control. They started to scream hard to their only chance, Jesus! Let me tell you something important. Jesus can be in the storm, the fire, on the mountain and He’ll always be in control. He’s calm, because He’s the master of the storm, the fire and everything visible or invisible made by His hand. “For by him all things were created, in the heavens and on the earth, things visible and things invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things have been created through him, and for him.” Colossians 1:16. When we call to Him in our disaster, He will hear our cry and He won’t leave us! I repeat my words: He will hear our cry and He won’t leave us! Call to God and don’t spare yourself! “Call to me, and I will answer you, and will show you great things, and difficult, which you don’t know.” Jeremiah 33:3. The Apostles even called to Jesus not with a request, but with a remark. “Don’t you care that we are dying?” Do you know how many people asking themselves this question today? If you are on this place, here is the Christ answer. “Why are you so afraid? How is it that you have no faith?” That’s the question to us today. Why is your heart in fear? The old nature or our flesh is still thinking that it’s normal to be afraid or in panic when the storm comes, but Jesus says that it shouldn’t be like that. We must have now faith in our heart and to know the Word, which can save us in any situation. To know the one that says: “Come to me, all you who labor and are heavily burdened, and I will give you rest.” How can give you a rest today? You already know the right answer. His name is Jesus! He berated the storm and it subsided immediately, that’s what He can do in your life. The students were scared by the fact that the natural disasters are obeying Him and fear from God came on them. Then they understood that they don’t know him yet. Yes, many people understand on what level are in the storms, but know one thing, that only will make your faith stronger and God won’t let you fail. He will save you and you will glorify Him. AMIN!

Have a beautiful day.

Galatians 5:6;10 “For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision amounts to anything, nor uncircumcision, but faith working through love. You were running well! Who interfered with you that you should not obey the truth? This persuasion is not from him who calls you. A little yeast grows through the whole lump. I have confidence toward you in the Lord that you will think no other way. But he who troubles you will bear his judgment, whoever he is.”

What was the circumcision my dear brothers and sisters? That was the God’s law for Israel. ”He gave him the covenant of circumcision. So Abraham became the father of Isaac, and circumcised him the eighth day. Isaac became the father of Jacob, and Jacob became the father of the twelve patriarchs.” Acts 7:8

Do you think it’s easy to say to people that stood so much time under the law that the thing they did have no power anymore, because something new is happening. Like Apostle Paul says in this message to the church in Corinth. “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old things have passed away. Behold, all things have become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17

People like that usually are not accepted, and in each innovation holds its critique in each phase of the human’s development. In the message to the Galatians we don’t have rejection of the law, because it’s clearly said: “Neither circumcision amounts to anything, nor uncircumcision”. That means neither this, which the ones claim, nor this, which they want to impose to others. That means there’s something new! Yes! And that’s the faith that works through love. You know how many people want to perform everything so strictly that they move from one extreme in another, and others, who live in the opposite extreme. The action of love in the life of each New Testament believer is the best winning side. The love is the one, which covers so many sins, she’s the one, which is merciful and is patient. The love doesn’t envy and she never holds in account for evil. The love has one more quality, she never falls! AMIN! That’s why and the Apostle is turning to the church and says: “You were running well! Who interfered with you that you should not obey the truth?” Many people are starting to walk in the way of Jesus well! In the beginning they are inspired, they love, and they are naturally born, absolute. Time goes by and after that one of a sudden you see that they start to change, ones for the better others for the worse. It was always like that, and it will always be. Some people stay strongly on the basis, which is Christ and they are loyal in everything till the end, while other part starts to exaggerate and to thing they are better believers and greater than the others. I have a calling! That’s the lie coming out of the mouth of the rebellious, self loving people. These people also think that they walk in the truth. It’s a deception of the Satan that you are the great mans and women of God, which will be used for His glory. And that’s the biggest deception of all times. To start well and to forget yourself is the main problem, with which we must handle while we still young. Usually the people that think this way, when they see a little chance of a statement they say, go forward now’s the moment, while the people staying in holiness and love to God know that to be useful they should be with humble hearts and to wait God to truly guide them in His way. On each play the devil sends people that disturb others. When somewhere the things go well, the Satan sends his people with enchantment spirit, so they can serve the unstable souls and to lure them in their cause with their perverted mind. That’s sourdough, thrown intentionally by the Satan, so it can yeast or to damage the whole society. That’s why God has set servants to guard for the congregation, they are called Pastors. These are people that should stay on guard and to alert, when something is happening. Today, it’s big mistake, when you agree to listen everyone, no matters if they are right or wrong. That will always bring failure in your life. The Apostle has no doubts in his words and he clearly calls the disobedience deception of the Satan. There are no unpunished actions, when the people are against the truth. The Apostle says that he believes the rest, who got no chance to get confused, and to become an easy prey to the several ought to. “I have confidence toward you in the Lord that you will think no other way. But he who troubles you will bear his judgment, whoever he is.” There is punishment for each ought to selfish person from God for all his actions against the God deed and no one, no matter who could progress while seeing the lie as a truth.

Let’s be careful in our worthily staying with God.

Blessed start of the new month of December, and we believe for miracles in the name of Jesus!

Hello Church, 30th November 2012

John 15:20; 25 “Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his lord.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do to you for my name’s sake, because they don’t know him who sent me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have had sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin. He who hates me, hates my Father also. If I hadn’t done among them the works which no one else did, they wouldn’t have had sin. But now have they seen and also hated both me and my Father. But this happened so that the word may be fulfilled which was written in their law, ‘They hated me without a cause.’”

It’s good to remind ourselves the words of Jesus, because the Bible says, that He himself is the Sermon. John 1:14 “The Word became flesh, and lived among us. We saw his glory, such glory as of the one and only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth”. Here He says that the servant has no bigger privilege than his Master! He won’t be worshiped more than Him. Jesus says to his students that if He like God and Savior was chased and unaccepted, they don’t have to get used to the thought that they’ll be approved. You know that people care a lot to be approved by everyone. We must do the things this way, so can everyone love us and like us, so they can come to us! No, that’s not the model of Jesus, which we must follow. He says that the Truth will make us free, so we don’t have a choice. We must be the light in this world, talking the truth at any time and place. Why? Because if we talk His words, He will abide in us and us in Him and whatever we want from our Father in His name, we will have it. Halleluiah! We will be Free until we are in His Truth. The human deception is easy and the devil is simple. He is repeating the same moves, trying in different ways to lie to us, to rob and destroy us. “The thief only comes to steal, kill, and destroy. I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.” John 10:10

Remember this that the Master Jesus was chased! What do you think will happen to His servants? Yes! They will be chased. Jesus was misunderstood and they denied His words. What will happen to His servants? Yes, your answer is correct. Jesus was wounded even from his own by faith. What do you think will happen to you my dear people? You gave correct answer yet again. I’m really starting to think that you know the sermon well! Halleluiah! Jesus said something very important after that. Hear it! “If I hadn’t done among them the works which no one else did, they wouldn’t have had sin. But now have they seen and also hated both me and my Father.” Now do you understand that no matter if someone likes you or not. If someone would approve you or not, love you or not! If you keep His sermon safe inside you, you will be approved by the Master, and that’s the most important thing brothers and sisters. If you rely to Him, you are already saved. Because He is the life and each born from Him will live. AMIN! Now, no one can apologize that he doesn’t know or understand, because our voice is everywhere! “But I say, didn’t they hear? Yes, most certainly, “Their sound went out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.” Romans 10:18. Oh, yes everyone will hear about Him, no matters if they accept Him or not, no matters if they accept you or not. The sermon of truth will expose the sin, in which they stay and all will find out that He is the Lord.

If the world hates you, it’s not for that you’ve made a sin, it’s because the justice, in which you stay, because your faith in the Son of the living God. “If the world hates you, you know that it has hated me before it hated you.” John 15:18. But we have to know and remember that everything that happens is because it’s already written. We have to look at the life, in which we live in Christ like the sermon say, because only then we can live calmly in His godly peace. I believe that God will continue to talk in your hearts for all this, and that’s the reason I stop here. Let the Holy Spirit of God guide you in His ways, so you can know from experience and His Godlike power.

“But this happened so that the word may be fulfilled which was written in their law, ‘They hated me without a cause.’”

God bless your day everyone,

Don’t forget to be blessing to someone today through your goodness in Jesus.

Matthew 22:1; 14 “Jesus answered and spoke again in parables to them, saying, 2  “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a certain king, who made a marriage feast for his son, and sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the marriage feast, but they would not come. Again he sent out other servants, saying, ‘Tell those who are invited, “Behold, I have prepared my dinner. My cattle and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready. Come to the marriage feast!”’ But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his own farm, another to his merchandise, and the rest grabbed his servants, and treated them shamefully, and killed them. When the king heard that, he was angry, and sent his armies, destroyed those murderers, and burned their city. “Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding is ready, but those who were invited weren’t worthy. Go therefore to the intersections of the highways, and as many as you may find, invite to the marriage feast.’ Those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together as many as they found, both bad and good. The wedding was filled with guests. But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man who didn’t have on wedding clothing, and he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here not wearing wedding clothing?’ He was speechless. Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and throw him into the outer darkness; there is where the weeping and grinding of teeth will be.’ For many are called, but few chosen.”

Imagine this picture! Wedding! What’s the first feeling or emotion that comes to you when you hear about wedding? If I make you describe that event with one word, what’s it going to be to describe that word, when I think about “feast” “merriment” is one of the things, which we can pick to describe it best. I know that you will find many more like it, with which you can describe that great event for each loving couple. When I think about all the preparations of that kind of event, it really needs big effort and time, so everything can be right. That’s a special day and it requires so much effort, so can everything be prepared! Jesus uses exactly the festival “MARRIAGE”, so He can make a picture in front of his students, which will help Him to show them how it looks the Heavens Kingdom. Then, can we say that the Heavens Kingdom is one big feast? Ooh, Yes! When we talk about a royal marriage, the feast and the merriment are always there. There really the gala is very well planned, the guests are carefully selected, and everything is on the highest level. And now, imagine that everything is ready, food and drink bought, the decorations are ready, the invites are sent, the music and the whole gala seems ready and everything is perfect for the great day! The King sends his servants to call the invited ones, but one big fall happens! They don’t want to come! They don’t want to come! Wow, what an ugly picture. Look what meanness from the invited ones! The King invites them, but they just say no and no! Tell me what would you do if they invite you to be special guests of the wedding of the royals? Will you say, ‘hah, big deal’! Let them be, I have other things to take care about. Here it’s said that this is the situation in God’s eyes, when we talk about the Heavens Kingdom. The invited ones refused to go to the party, because their work, business was more important than this event, the royal son is getting married! What do you think happens to the royal heart when it’s harmed like that? “When the king heard that, he was angry”. Yes, don’t lie to yourself, that’s God! God got angry to the invited ones! To those who were honored. God said: “, but those who were invited weren’t worthy.” That’s really sad! In a moment everything is fine and now instead of a wedding, the hearts of those who did all the hard work for the wedding are harmed! Do you think that because of those blighters and smart-asses the wedding will fail? Oh, no! It shouldn’t! The King won’t let his Son and bride to sit on an empty table. Jesus continues with the story: “Go therefore to the intersections of the highways, and as many as you may find, invite to the marriage feast.” There won’t be any empty chairs! The servants of the King can’t allow that to happen! They won’t leave the things like that, they have a new order. When these people don’t want to come, leave them! Go and find enough people to fill up the place! And here’s the result: “Those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together as many as they found, both bad and good. The wedding was filled with guests.” You see that there are no empty spots when the time comes for the bridegroom to step into a covenant with his beloved one. Glory to God!

And all of a sudden on the wedding night, there’s a problem. Have you paid attention to that? You will say, ‘There’s no wedding without a problem’. Yes, but you forget that this is the marriage of the royal son and here the things can’t happen like that! One of the invited ones doesn’t have proper clothes and that’s a big problem. Someone minimized the meeting, the gathered ones and the wedding day itself and the King noticed that. I want to tell you something church! The King will check the invited ones and no one can sneak with his old clothes that resemble our old nature. We must be loyal and responsible people with clean hearts and white outfits of holiness, not some worn out and unchanged irresponsible people. It’s said that such people will be returned! I think I said it too soft! Thrown is the word that God uses! “For many are called, but few chosen.” Who you want to be? If you want to be from the reasonable part start preparing your clothes dear people. The marriage of the royal son is getting closer! Let’s dress up our festive clothes so we can honor the King!

Revelation 3:5 “He who overcomes will be arrayed in white garments, and I will in no way blot his name out of the book of life, and I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.”

Proverbs 23:6; 9 “Don’t eat the food of him who has a stingy eye, and don’t crave his delicacies: for as he thinks about the cost, so he is. “Eat and drink!” he says to you, but his heart is not with you. The morsel which you have eaten you shall vomit up, and lose your good words. Don’t speak in the ears of a fool, for he will despise the wisdom of your words.”

Today, many people fall in the Satan’s trap so easy, just because they don’t have root in themselves and they are not searching for wisdom. “Rooted and built up in him, and established in the faith, even as you were taught, abounding in it in thanksgiving.” Colossians 2:7. Many times people are gathering with others that charm them with their tasty offerings and earth treasures, sweet words, beautiful life and they give them everything only to impress the people, when they say that everything they have is from God. You know that the earth treasures are not collected with too much effort. Nevertheless, when you look in their life, the evil can’t hide, but they try again and again to fool the clearly defined believers with some humility. Open your eyes church, because it’s time to start seeing those that serve, and those that use you for personal benefits. Proverbs tells us something very wise: “For as he thinks about the cost, so he is.” You can from one Sunday preach to understand for example what is in a servant soul. If you share the spiritual bread each day with someone, you’ll truly understand who is he. I’m very surprised how people get bounded so easily with such, that doesn’t even know and they go after them like puppies on chains. I’ve seen them through the years and when they find out that they are bounded, it’s too late. All the people have thoughts not only in their mind but in their soul too. The difference is huge. The thoughts in the mind are short and they pass quickly. There a person can’t always rule over them, but the thoughts of your soul show the person that you really are. It’s not for who you are pretending to be, it’s the real you! Don’t search the company of all kind of people, because with their madness they can take you away from the healthy mind. “These are hidden rocky reefs in your love feasts when they feast with you, shepherds who without fear feed themselves; clouds without water, carried along by winds; autumn leaves without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;” Jude 1:12. It’s not the first time the Bible warns us for such people, but are our spiritual senses so sharpened to catch them? When I read about rocky reefs I remember how when someone goes into the sea, his foot gets harmed from the reef, and after that he’s more careful. Rocky reef is exactly this that you don’t expect to happen. You walk and everything looks fine and all of a sudden “bam” you got hurt! Don’t go with such people and don’t try to change them, it won’t happen. The Bible is saying that even if you talk to them, when a person has no mind, he’ll start hating you. It’s talked to people that have mind and search eternal life. Now I’ll tell you what happens with people that are already trapped, and to those who are free! Those, who are trapped, don’t feel like that in the beginning, but in time it starts to hurt a lot! They lose the spark in their eyes, this passionate love that they had in their confidence to God. The kind words disappear and hatred and jealousy starts to take over their heart. They say that they love, but their heart sits away from you. They are trapped. The free ones! You know the people that love each other! There’s a flame of joy in their eyes and you can’t miss that. Everyone loves to watch and they are happy for such people. The words that get out of them are sweet and they carefully select the words that they say, being cautious not to harm the other that they love. Everything is so nice, but Satan doesn’t want to see such people. Don’t give to Satan to fool you so easily. Listen to the Sermon and teach yourself to wisdom from God. Be free in Christ! Let your heart be free from everything, religion or some human orders, but catch the eternal life, which is in Christ and no one can trick you that easy. Follow people that are good example not only by words, but also their life shines through Jesus.

2 Corinthians 7:11; 16 “For behold, this same thing, that you were made sorry in a godly way, what earnest care it worked in you. Yes, what defense, indignation, fear, longing, zeal, and vengeance! In everything you demonstrated yourselves to be pure in the matter. So although I wrote to you, I wrote not for his cause that did the wrong, nor for his cause that suffered the wrong, but that your earnest care for us might be revealed in you in the sight of God. Therefore we have been comforted. In our comfort we rejoiced the more exceedingly for the joy of Titus, because his spirit has been refreshed by you all. For if in anything I have boasted to him on your behalf, I was not disappointed. But as we spoke all things to you in truth, so our glorying also which I made before Titus was found to be truth. His affection is more abundantly toward you, while he remembers all of your obedience, how with fear and trembling you received him. I rejoice that in everything I am confident concerning you.”

If you’re asking yourselves, what’s this letter about and what’s the thing that distressed the Macedonian church, we should look at the first verses. There it’s said;

2 Corinthians 7:1; 2 “Having therefore these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. Open your hearts to us. We wronged no one. We corrupted no one. We took advantage of no one.”

Usually, when you preach to people that believe, so they can cleanse themselves from all the flesh and spiritual uncleanness in the race of the rebellious, in their hearts becomes a rebellion. That’s not a characters, it’s a rebellion against God. Each one, that hasn’t taught himself in piety and seriousness, he falls under the hits of the Satan. When you expose people for sin they start to hate you with no reason, not the sin, that get’s them in some intrigues. If you expose someone for example, and you tell him that he’s lying, and it’s not from God, when this person doesn’t accept exposure, his nature starts to rebel. Instead like a wise in God person to accept exposure and to repent himself, he becomes an enemy to the Sermon. Because of his pride, he becomes an enemy to God, without even knowing it. The Apostle say, that his message for self-cleaning harmed so many people, but he doesn’t regret it. Why? Because that brought something better in their lives, that’s the reason for their self-cleaning! When a servant that lives you speaks word of exposure, for sin in your life, this means that God is cutting a branch from the vine, so it can have more fruit. Not a single loving parent is going to thing something bad to his child right?

John 15:2 “Every branch in me that doesn’t bear fruit, he takes away. Every branch that bears fruit, he prunes, that it may bear more fruit.”

To give fruits, doesn’t mean to have initiative. Many people become funny with their uncontrollable impulse to prove themselves. To give fruits, means God to cut you by the time He cleanse fully your heart from sin and full with the Holy Spirit to start giving fruits worthy for repentance! Matthew 3:8 “Therefore produce fruit worthy of repentance!”

In Proverbs 14:15 for example there’s a verse. “A simple man believes everything, but the prudent man carefully considers his ways.” Let me say it like that! The simple one trusts anyone and he goes wherever they go! All looks right to him! The one who have mind is careful for each step he does and he’s exploring everything! Who servers, where he walks, with who is he going, etc.!

In the end Apostle Paul have the strength to say something that he achieved talking the truth and staying in God’s justice. His words in the end of the letter are; “I rejoice that in everything I am confident concerning you.”

Today I can really say these words to the trusted in God people. Those who love God not only on words, but on deeds too! Those who love their brothers and sisters like themselves and they are not walking in the vicious circle of lies, chitchat, slander, strife, jealousy, discords, disappointments, betrayals, spiritual whoredom and etc. Today I can say with one word! I’M INSPIRED! Halleluiah! Be inspired in God and love each other like family in Him!

God bless you for your loyalty, truth, love and dedication! May God of peace be with all of you.

Matthew 7:13; 14 “Enter in by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter in by it. How narrow is the gate, and restricted is the way that leads to life! Few are those who find it.”

There is only one path that we must walk in and the Bible say that it’s not going to be an easy one, but will be glorious and if we walk in it we will be blessed with good success. So for you to start walking in this path, you have to enter through the narrow gate. When we read in God’s words for “gate” we understand these city gates that everyone just get in and out. Here is about choosing between two gates, and each one of you can take a personal decision, which gate he’ll cross. One is narrow and will give you an opportunity to walk in the narrow path, which leads to life. The other one is not recommended, because it’s said, that the majority is there. That’s the wide gate with the wide path, in which when everybody go there their life will be in great danger, because the path leads to death.

Let’s look in the sermon and see what more it’s said about this path. We have to understand it well. From the beginning of the placement of the basis of the New Testament way of salvation and so can be preached the God’s Kingdom, it’s said about prophet John, who had to start the preparations for the Lord’s way!

Matthew 11:10 “For this is he, of whom it is written, ‘Behold, I send my messenger before your face, who will prepare your way before you.”

Jesus said for Him! – Matthew 21:32 “For John came to you in the way of righteousness, and you didn’t believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes believed him. When you saw it, you didn’t even repent afterward, that you might believe him.”

Jesus talked about this “way” also, when he said that this “way”, in which John walks, is a way of justice. Notice that! It’s very important to know that there’s no other way of salvation than the one of justice. Many people want to make this way wider, because that is suppressing their sinner self, but God never said to do that. This way doesn’t need fixing or something for completion. That’s the justice way, and we all should walk in it. Not to preach, but to walk! Jesus said to his students:

John 14:1; 6 “Don’t let your heart be troubled. Believe in God. Believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many homes. If it weren’t so, I would have told you. I am going to prepare a place for you. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and will receive you to myself; that where I am, you may be there also. Where I go, you know, and you know the way.” Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going. How can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.”

Before finishing his earthly path, Jesus inspired his followers like he said to them not to go down from faith. He revealed them a secret that the sky will be a prepared place for everyone that follows Him. Jesus revealed His big love to everyone when He wished to spend the eternity with those, who love Him. Notice that! Jesus said it clearly that they know the way, to which they’ll go in the eternal life when Thomas said to Him that he doesn’t know about it, and this great verse is said from thousands generations before.

“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.”

 

Peer in Jesus, search His justice, love the truth and you won’t move away from the path.

Blessed day for everyone!

Romans 7:18; 25 “For I know that in me, that is, in my flesh, dwells no good thing. For desire is present with me, but I don’t find it doing that which is good. For the good which I desire, I don’t do; but the evil which I don’t desire, that I practice. But if what I don’t desire, that I do, it is no more I that do it, but sin which dwells in me. I find then the law, that, to me, while I desire to do good, evil is present. For I delight in God’s law after the inward man, but I see a different law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity under the law of sin which is in my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will deliver me out of the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ, our Lord! So then with the mind, I myself serve God’s law, but with the flesh, the sin’s law.”


How many times we woke up with a wish to do good things, but instead we understand that we failed again. We wanted to change the negative things in our life, but instead it’s like all of our ambition was in vain and we think it’s even worse. Did you have this before? The law of flesh! That’s what Apostle Paul saw in his own life too.


Where are the things braking? How can we handle this?


I’ve heard so many people to say the exact words. I want to change, but I can’t! I want to do good things, but never happen. Apostle Paul is saying that his inner self is changed and it’s searching this, which is from God, there’s a wish for good things too! The next words are the key to this revelation. Let us read them carefully! “, but I see a different law in my members”. You should know like an adult Christians to understand that the law of the flesh is one, and the spirit law is another. The balance in our unbalanced nature can do only God and that’s not psychology, but a spiritual battle of good and evil. You must know that your body is always going to resist against the Spirit and that will put in you a big conflict, with which you have to deal.
Romans 8:7 “, because the mind of the flesh is hostile towards God; for it is not subject to God’s law, neither indeed can it be.”


Apostle Paul uses too much time to understand that conflict, because he finds it for extremely important. Sometimes I notice people saying! I think that this thing happens only to me, why I am so bad? Look for example how someone manages! Self-abuse my brothers and sisters won’t solve this problem instead it can make it worse. One of the battle fields of Satan is our mind. He will try, if we let him to send each day thoughts of disappointment to us, so he can brake and weaken our faith in our hearts. He will want to repeat us each day how we failed in the search for God. He will remind us how many times we promised to become better and we failed again. Don’t let him do that. Say to Satan these words! SHUT UP! Get away from me Satan. Because greater is he who is in you than he who is in the world. That’s a word from God! “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is he who is in you than he who is in the world.” 1 John 4:4. Yes, you’re not the only one having this inner cry in your spiritual newborn person. “What a wretched man I am!” Apostle Paul needed time and revelation from the Spirit, so he could know the perfection, which he have in his life trough the God’s Son, Jesus Christ. And until many people are saying to themselves, I won’t ever get better, I won’t succeed, there’s no one that can help me, the Apostle saw something, and I wish you to see it today. “I thank God through Jesus Christ, our Lord!” Say these words with faith again and again until they are alive inside you. “I thank God through Jesus Christ, our Lord!” And again “I thank God through Jesus Christ, our Lord!” You are more than blessed from before, believe me! If I managed to help you at least a little for your day to become better, I’m really happy!

Isaiah 55:1; 3 “Come, everyone who thirsts, to the waters! Come Yes, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.  Why do you spend money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which doesn’t satisfy? Listen diligently to me, and eat that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in richness. Turn your ear, and come to me. Hear, and your soul will live: and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.”

When was the last time when someone did something for you for free? You are probably saying that to yourself right now! Pastor, don’t talk silly things. These things actually existed from time to time during the communism, but now we pay for them double time. Yes, indeed! But look what I’ve read this morning in Isaiah, something inspiring and I want to share it with you. My attention got pulled in the beginning of a verse, which we meet a lot of times in the New Testament.

“Now on the last and greatest day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink!” John 7:37

That’s a great revelation! The waters of God, for which Isaiah talks about, are abundant in the life of Jesus. Jesus has the water of life for all of us!

We see the God’s calling to the people. This cry is to the thirsty souls, those who never get enough of His presence. But here have something else. No matter what generation we look at, was it before thousand years or now, there’s one thing in common. The thing is that everything has its price, and that never leaves our mind. When somebody gives you something the first thing you ask is what’s the price and can I afford that. Is that fitting in my pocket, like the people says. Isn’t that right? God is not repeating that for nothing, that the only thing you must do if you want your soul to live, is to come and take from Him and it’s not needed to pay. “NO MONEY”! Here, clearly is said for the people, that don’t have. Do you notice that people who don’t have money they suddenly go backwards when they find out that the thing they want so much costs money. God is not talking vainly: “he who has no money, buy, and eat!” To buy without money! To get without money! To have without money! Come on, who is going to say Halleluiah!

After that we have another equally important calling, and that is to listen. That, for example, all of us can do, but my father was saying: “Just care, don’t overdo it”. It’s the same, right? From too much effort you can get confused more, but that’s another story. It’s important to note that this promise of God, because it’s about our life! Here it is! “Hear, and your soul will live”. We are going to read the next couple of verses in Isaiah, to get some vision about what exactly is God talking about.

Isaiah 55:6; 9 “Seek the Lord while he may be found. Call on him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts. Let him return to God, and he will have mercy on him; and to our God, for he will freely pardon. “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not my ways,” says God.  “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

We can understand very well what’s the calling here. On first place we have “come, buy wine and milk without money and without price”, and after that: “Seek the Lord while he may be found. Call on him while he is near.” Let me tell you something important! There is a blessed time, which is appointed by God for this free gift. It’s not going to be forever, the time, in which people will have this favor from God. Jesus said: “The time is fulfilled, and God’s Kingdom is at hand! Repent, and believe in the Good News.” Mark 1:15.

We see that prophetic preaching in Isaiah and trough mouth of Jesus in the New Testament. “Repent” and “let the unclean abandon his path” are same thing. Without repentance you don’t have access do the waters of the Lord, you won’t be able to satisfy your thirst that you have in your tired soul. Something inside is calling strongly “FORGIVE ME”, don’t hold it back! Cry to God and He will hear your heart’s cry and he won’t forget to heal you. Cry to our God, because He is forgiving largely. “Therefore, even as the Holy Spirit says, “Today if you will hear his voice,” Hebrews 3:7

Have a beautiful day church, TODAY!

2 Corinthians 5:18; 21 “But all things are of God, who reconciled us to himself through Jesus Christ, and gave to us the ministry of reconciliation; namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself, not reckoning to them their trespasses, and having committed to us the word of reconciliation. We are therefore ambassadors on behalf of Christ, as though God were entreating by us: we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For him who knew no sin he made to be sin on our behalf; so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”


I believe that these verses will inspire you and cheer you up today. When you remind yourself that everything is from God, everything becomes easier. Indeed everything is from God and we must know that He’s doing everything. Here’s the need that we experience all the time to search Him. Why? Because we always, whatever we do and doesn’t matter how strong we are, we are going to need Him. I’ve heart even the richest and famous people to say that without God I couldn’t do it. Only with an ambition and hope things are not working out in this life. Even God reconciled us with him, that’s what Apostle Paul said to the church in Corinth. Reconcile us via Jesus Christ His one and only, loving Son. That’s good to know, but why God needed to do it? Look something that will inspire you today. He called us to Him, so can the mercy, which He showed to us to be sent like an invitation from our heart to all those, who He wants to bring to Him. With the words of the Apostle “and He gave us to serve as acquiescence.” In our heart was implemented the letter of acquiescence. That’s the reason most of the newborn Christians to feel the need to share their believing. Look it can happen without that too. I can believe like that for myself! Say most religiously fooled and brutally lied from satan people. But these with the letter of acquiescence in them have inner peace and only then, when they manage to share with someone else. Our heart never stops talking “we beg you from the Christ side, reconcile with God”. That’s the spiritual burden, which we wear, the burden that Jesus himself spoke of. “For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:30.


Knowing that our justice isn’t ours, but God’s, Who made sin the One, who never knew sin! I ask myself who heavy it was for Jesus to take all the world sins. Without knowing sin, to be burdened with sins! Without having guilt to be charged, without being sick to take all the sickness and not for anything personal, but for the saving of the world! I’ll call that with one word, love.

John 3:16. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.”

Have the most amazing day church. If someone is saying that he doesn’t believe, he doesn’t deserve it! Smiles!

1 Timothy 4:12; 16 “Let no man despise your youth; but be an example to those who believe, in word, in your way of life, in love, in spirit, in faith, and in purity. Until I come, pay attention to reading, to exhortation, and to teaching. Don’t neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the elders. Be diligent in these things. Give yourself wholly to them, that your progress may be revealed to all. Pay attention to yourself, and to your teaching. Continue in these things, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.”
Apostle Paul gives directions to his young student Timothy with the behest to be a good example for all the believers that Apostle Paul gives him. An example in the sermon, in behaving, in love, in faith, in purity. Have you notice that all the aspects of the spiritual growing are here and the inspiration of the Apostle is Timothy to practice everything and to show himself as an example of imitation. Apostle Paul definitely learned that from his teacher: “Now the God of patience and of encouragement grant you to be of the same mind one with another according to Christ Jesus.” Romans 15:5
He gives a good example to want this from anyone else. “Brothers, be imitators together of me, and note those who walk this way, even as you have us for an example.” Philippians 3:17. Here the Apostle doesn’t say to have God or Jesus for an example, but them, which means full responsibility. How many servants today have the power to say exactly these words. Be imitators together of me. These words mean only one thing. Everything I saw from Jesus, I do it too. When you learn others, the Bible is saying that we have first to learn ourselves. “You therefore who teach another, don’t you teach yourself?” Romans 2:21.
Nowadays people don’t do that. They don’t test people’s spirits, they haven’t learned to follow. What does it mean to be a follower? This means to follow someone. All Christians say that they follow Jesus, but that’s not true. You can’t claim that you follow Jesus when you don’t want to honor the ones that he gave us for example. Not honoring your servant you deny the ministry of the Holy Spirit and that counts for disobedience to God. That’s how a person can quickly get in the role of enemy to God without even realizing that, although in his heart have love and he thinks he’s good. “Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God. Whoever loves the Father also loves the child who is born of him.” 1 John 5:1. Let me say it like that. Why should Apostle Paul teach this young student to be good example, when he’s not going to be a leader after that? Timothy has to be careful in some things while the Apostle comes back again to take care of Him. “Until I come, pay attention to reading, to exhortation, and to teaching.” I imagine Apostle Paul coming back and Timothy running away into the forest! I think that the success, which we can see in the building and the future of the ministry of Timothy is based upon his obedience, which he have to Paul and in this way he shows his obedience to the Holy Spirit. What is Timothy doing? He’s paying attention to reading, to exhortation, and to teaching. The thing that Paul wanted from him was not to get his gift weakened, which he got via the laying on of the hands of the elders. Today everyone are laying hands whenever he wants and whatever he wants and whoever he wants and that’s a main reason for imbalance, which satan managed to implement in the Christian environment. There is no good example, leadership, no obedience and respect from the servants, and from that there is no obedience and trust to the Spirit of God, Who was sent from our Father trough Jesus Christ, our example. We want to teach others, but we don’t have basic things in our lives! It’s not going to happen like that. I’ve seen the fall of many people over the years just because of these reasons. Every person has to follow the example of the one that teaches him! This is really biblically and strong trough God and always gives results. That’s the biblical way. Someone will say: I have a question! What if the servant is not loyal to God and he’s not a good example? There’s a clear answer for you! Do wisely and don’t go after blind leaders to authority, money and lust.


We follow the example of Christ! He obeyed to his Father! Jesus, “who is at the right hand of God, having gone into heaven, angels and authorities and powers being made subject to him.” 1 Peter 3:22. We have obeyed “to the truth through the Spirit in sincere brotherly affection, love one another from the heart fervently:” 1 Peter 1:22
Follow the Christ’s example and that’s how you should see your spiritual leader.
The follow up of the whole obedience will be the perfect way of God, love.
I love you deeply church;

Romans 11:25; 29 “For I don’t desire you to be ignorant, brothers, of this mystery, so that you won’t be wise in your own conceits, that a partial hardening has happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in, and so all Israel will be saved. Even as it is written, “There will come out of Zion the Deliverer, and he will turn away ungodliness from Jacob. This is my covenant to them, when I will take away their sins.” Concerning the Good News, they are enemies for your sake. But concerning the election, they are beloved for the fathers’ sake. For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.”

When I read these days for the attacks against Israel and the victims there, really, pain stroke my heart. “As many as walk by this rule, peace and mercy be on them, and on God’s Israel.” Galatians 6:16

The Bible is saying to us that Israel is God’s! Our prayers are for the peace of the holy land. But reading today Romans 11 my attention stopped with bated breath and much joy in this verse: “and so all Israel will be saved”. Isn’t that great that the destiny of these people is predetermined by God? In the verse before it’s said that the partial hardening of their hearts has its purpose, and that is for the fullness of the Gentiles to come in. Isn’t that great that God divined for us too! Halleluiah! If you are already summoned by that it means that you are already a part of the number of the saved ones. I don’t know about you my friend, but I am truly agitated about that. To know that you are a part from the big family of God is truly exciting fact. To know that He has summoned you for salvation and your life is safe brings you true peace and unceasing blessing in your life. Joy from God you have inside, which the people of this world can’t see, because of the confidence we have in Him, that the deed, which He started in us God’s strong to finish. Apostle Paul is saying to Timothy in one of his letters: “Yet I am not ashamed, for I know him whom I have believed, and I am persuaded that he is able to guard that which I have committed to him against that day.” 2 Timothy 1:12. What is this precious thing, which the apostle has actually committed to Jesus? Of course HIS LIFE!

The important thing here is the testament, which God made with the people of Israel and this is can’t be removed! “…when I will take away their sins”. God has a plan for these people and in His heart is the thought for forgiveness. God will make anything necessary and will remove their sins, so can His people be saved. Apostle Paul is saying that this blessed time is useful for the Gentile until their fullness comes in. As for the choice of God, He already chose! They are beloved, because of their fathers’, we are beloved because of the Son Jesus Christ. AMIN!

Here is one of the God’s rules, which you should know and with which I want to leave you today in thoughts: “For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.” That, which God gave to the church today, no matter calling or a gift, He is irrevocable. Glory to God for that he always shows up at night!

I believe that you are already part from the number of the saved, who together with the people of Israel will inherit the promised from God land. Pray and fast this week for the people of Israel church. If you are still not saved and you don’t know the way of salvation, I’ll guide you in a short pray, which you will say heartily to God.

The Bible declares: “I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.” (John10:10)

Dear Lord Jesus,

I believe, that You are God’s Son. I believe, that You came to this earth 2 000 years ago. I believe, that You died for me on the cross and shed Your blood for my salvation. I believe, that You got resurrected and you ascended high. I believe, that You will come back to this earth. Dear Jesus, I’m a sinner. Forgive me my sins. Wash me now with Your precious blood. Come in my heart. Save my soul right in this moment. I give my life to You. I accept You now like my Savior, my Lord, and my God. I’m yours forever and I will serve You, and follow You during the rest of my life. From this moment forward I belong only to You. I’m no longer part from this world, not part of the enemy of my soul. I belong to You, and I’m newborn.

AMIN!

Praying with this pray, admitting your sins and accepting Jesus Christ in your heart, God gave you the right to become His forgiven child. The Bible gives you this guarantee: “But as many as received him, to them he gave the right to become God’s children, to those who believe in his name:” John 1:12

If you really accepted Jesus Christ in your life, we want to share this joy with you.

God bless you!

With much love, Pastor Vasil Petrov

“Leave your simple ways, and live. Walk in the way of understanding.” He who corrects a mocker invites insult. He who reproves a wicked man invites abuse. Don’t reprove a scoffer, lest he hate you. Reprove a wise man, and he will love you. Instruct a wise man, and he will be still wiser. Teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning.” Proverbs 9:6; 9

Today is Saturday church, and many people take this day for a rest, but that doesn’t prevent us in any means to get some more wisdom in our life. When I say wisdom it’s best to go in Proverbs. Today, I saw something that is easy to remember, and also to practice. I’ve seen people that reprove all, without caring for anything and that’s really stupid. The verses, in which I want to guide you, are saying to walk in the way of the wisdom, and not doing whatever we want. When you decide to give wisdom or to help a person, who laughs at you, you won’t win anything of that, you can get yourself in a bad situation, which will bring the next dose of shame in your life. When you reprove unrepentant, not pure person, you also won’t harvest good results. Here it’s something very important, which the church have to understand. If you reprove a person, who is wise you’ll get love and understanding, because he’s well aware that this is in his plus. This is a big fail in the Christian society. Most of the servants today have flattering mouth, so they can keep their auditorium and that’s a sin for God. Other just reproves everyone and that happens to be a very annoying part of their life and they thing they are always right. It’s good to learn when and who we can reprove? It has to be in the right time and if it’s needed of course. We have to see if we win the love of the people in this situation or just we impose our own will and self-righteousness and we push them away. The righteous and wise will accept a lesson and will become better and wiser, and also they’ll love you, because you all are in one Spirit. That’s what God showed me trough out the years and I was always careful with my relationships with the people and when it was needed I reproved those, who I see, those who are wise and I can help them even today, they are prospering and grown spiritual brothers and sisters. I’ve made the mistake to correct those, who pretend to look for God, but only with mouth, their heart is staying away from Him. There won’t be any results for them only mocking, insults and disappointments. Live wisely and don’t give your blessings to the pigs! Matthew 7:6 “Don’t give that which is holy to the dogs, neither throw your pearls before the pigs, lest perhaps they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.”

James 1:1; 8 “James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are in the Dispersion: Greetings. Count it all joy, my brothers, when you fall into various temptations, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. Let endurance have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. 5 But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach; and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, without any doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, driven by the wind and tossed. For let that man not think that he will receive anything from the Lord. He is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.”

That is one amazing sermon, which we should understand well. Of course, I don’t think that someone would be happy to have tests in their life. Who likes to be tested? Most people do anything possible to evade the problematic situations that life gives to them, but they don’t always succeed. There are such moments, in which you should take the problem face on and solve it. These situations make you choose between two paths or ways, when you really face the mountain. Yes, of course that for everyone it’s easier to evade, but in James it’s talked to the brothers, which in most biblical cases means the church to have joy, when it comes to the tests. That’s one of these moments when we want to close our eyes or to go to the next page, so we could not think about what is God talking here. We know that the joy in God is our strength, but definitely it’s hard to be happy when the things go wrong. God want to teach us something important! Every single situation in our life, in which we are under a test, will make us even stronger and here we should agree with God. You remember this, when you were students, everything was somehow easier, but from the first day that you collided with the tuff things in life and you had to work even on your specialization it turns out to be much more different than the textbooks. One thing is to learn how to fly a plane, but it’s other to get in the pilot cabin and to start making decisions alone. This is exactly what we are talking about here. While you grow up like infant in God, it’s not necessary to do a lot things until the time of your majority comes and God is starting to place you in the real conditions of spiritual battles, so you can start dealing with them like an adult person in knowing of God and to learn to trust Him. The hardness of the believer comes then, when he starts to handle the challenges of life and the different circumstances in which the rough sea of the world puts him every single day. Accept, that each day that passes with a new test, each removed mountain will make you stronger and hardened God vessel. Someone will say like a child: Why do I need hardness, I can go just like that without tests in my life and it’ll be much easier. Don’t be a child and grow up in God. Every single person will grow up and collide with life, the important thing is something else, are you prepared for that? It’s said that the hardness will do its deed perfectly. Yes that’s right! You will advance for each good deed, I hope no one forgot, that we were created and new-born from God, so He can make us His vessels, so his glory can rise.

“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared before that we would walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10

Get ready for the tests of life, which will make you mature and strong in the knowing of the Lord, so you can understand from experience His blessing in your life. Don’t be lazy and don’t walk in doubt, because you won’t receive a quick answer from the sky. Without doubts make your prays to God and ask Him to give you wisdom, so you can be learned from Him how you should handle in each situation when you pass with confidence trough the tuff conditions of life. He will give you strength to handle them and he will guide you.

Proverbs 6:22. “When you walk, it will lead you. When you sleep, it will watch over you. When you awake, it will talk with you.”

Have your greatest day in your life, why not today!

Blessings and much love in Jesus

Luke 17:20;21 “Being asked by the Pharisees when God’s Kingdom would come, he answered them, “God’s Kingdom doesn’t come with observation; neither will they say, ‘Look, here!’ or, ‘Look, there!’ for behold, God’s Kingdom is within you.”

Today more than ever we pray to see God deeds and his proximity with the humanity. Don’t forget even for an instant that He is God and we humans. Creator and creations, Maker and made ones, Savior and saved, this thing we should never forget when we pray and hope of Him. The Pharisees wanted to know when the God’s Kingdom is coming or the God’s governance, from where and how it will come and how is going to happen? From long time people were threatened from things that they do not understand and got no control over them. Then the questions become a lot. How? Where? Who? Why?

I think that they waited an answer like that. God’s Kingdom will come after two years and you will be one of the first in the governance there. Maybe they thought that. When we find out from Him when will His kingdom come we will be prepared! Doesn’t matter how we interpret that one thing is clear, they were not able to see God’s Kingdom. I think for the present days and I’m still confused when I see dedicated old believers to believe in religious deceives. Everyone waits for something to come, to happen in a way so can everyone see with their fleshly eyes, otherwise you can’t talk about that the God’s Kingdom is here. Look what Jesus said to them; “God’s Kingdom doesn’t come with observation”. Let me show you something brothers and sisters! You will not notice God’s Kingdom in the way you want. You got to have healed spiritual eyes to understand that it’s here from long time! Halleluiah! Don’t wait someone to say to you that it’s here or there, because God’s governance on this earth is very old fact! His kingdom is among every one of us. We live in it! We have it and we can see it today!

Only the born anew believers can see the God kingdom. “Jesus answered him, “Most certainly, I tell you, unless one is born anew, he can’t see God’s Kingdom.” John 3:3. The next verse is saying that if we don’t have a spiritual Christening we can’t go in the God kingdom. “Jesus answered, “Most certainly I tell you, unless one is born of water and spirit, he can’t enter into God’s Kingdom!” John 3:5. In Acts we can see how Philip, full with the Holy Spirit, he wasn’t asking where is the God Kingdom, but he was preaching it and there were consequences. “Again, therefore, Jesus spoke to them, saying, “ But when they believed Philip preaching good news concerning God’s Kingdom and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.” Acts 8:12

So many evidence from the Spirit we can say that God’s Kingdom is among us and we shouldn’t lose our time, but with all of our strength we should tell the news for it, according to the teachings to teach the people to that. Instead of waiting resurrection and praying only for that, it’s time to see God’s Kingdom and to walk in it like chosen ones, born anew, saved souls. Because revived means me and you, the people living washed in the blood of Jesus from their sins. There, where are two or three in God’s name Jesus is among them! Glory to Christ for that! Apostle Paul wasn’t waiting the revival or the coming of the God’s Kingdom, but he accepted everyone and taught them how to enter in it.

“Paul stayed two whole years in his own rented house, and received all who were coming to him, preaching God’s Kingdom, and teaching the things concerning the Lord Jesus Christ with all boldness, without hindrance.” Acts 28:30; 31

Today, church, we have everything in our hands and we have to thank God for this blessed time! We have places where we can gather people, these are “our homes”, “halls” or “internet page” to preach God’s Kingdom with full confidence without anyone to forbid us. Lets thank God for this blessed time for preaching His sermon and don’t become like the Pharisees, they were only asking when and where, but to love each other and to walk in love and good deeds.

Have a beautiful day and may God of peace be with every one of you.

With much love to Christ’s body
