Lord Jesus Christ taught about food and drink in the John Gospel during the apostasy era. When HE went to the city of Sychar in Samaria and arrived at Jacob’s well, Lord Jesus met a Samaritan woman and asked her, “Give me a drink”. Later, towards the end of the passage we hear, In the meantime His disciples urged Him, saying, “Rabbi, eat.” But He said to them, “I have food to eat of which you do not know.” Therefore the disciples said to one another, “Has anyone brought Him anything to eat?” …
The true destiny of mankind Adam was to be tested in the garden by setting a limitation, by not eating of one tree, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, the condition reserved for God himself…
Leaning in our own discernment or understanding and seeking not the wisdom of God, we lose fear of God. But, fear of God is the beginning of knowledge and trusting in the LORD is necessary of attaining any of the wisdom of life. Trusting the Lord is to fear him with all our heart indicating trust which is beyond intellectual assent to a deep reliance on the Lord, a settled confidence in his care and his faithfulness to his word.
God is Light of the world; as the sun rises daily and the moon sparks at night, HE is the light shining for eternity. Saint John’s message to all Christians about HIM states, “This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not live according to the truth; but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just, and will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (1 John 5-10)
Heaven, a paradise of righteous dwelling, there flows four rivers, Ephesus, Pishon, Tigris, and Euphrates. A river watering the garden flowed from Eden; from there it was separated into four headwaters. The name of the first is the Pishon; it skirts through the entire land of Havilah, where there is gold. (The gold of that land is good; aromatic resin and onyx are also there.) The name of the second river is the Pishon; it winds through the entire land of Cush. The name of the third river is the Tigris; it runs along the east side of Ashur. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.” (Genesis, 2:8-14)
Athenians worshiping assorted witches made Apostle Paul furious and fuming. Qualm the existence in GOD, they curved sculptures and bow in front it by the Title of “The unknown GOD.” Watching them in irate he said, “God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwell not in temples made with hands.” He preached for them to have faith in the Alpha and Omega, GOD. Saint Paul’s name signifying his Christ’s gulp of air, his deed wasn’t out of the ordinary; tough theirs was inapt. (Acts 17:22-24)
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs in transient way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the doorkeeper opens and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of stranger.” (John 10:1-6)
There are things to keep in mind when using Holy Icons for prayer and various services. It is important to keep it in a proper place so that it does not get damaged and blurred. The owner of the icon describes the picture, illustrating God or Holy, Righteous or Martyr due reverence and worship shall be given. Artists to help the laities know and worship the rightful owners of the painting they must also draw the icon they are painting.
Our LORD Jesus Christ previously preached that his father Holy Spirit will come and he will become life to Holy Church, and when the truth of spirit comes, he will lead us to the all truth. (John. 16:13)
Affirmed as “Trepidation for GOD is the throne of wisdom,” the wisdom from GOD is the trepidation of him. (Syra. 1:18). Fearing GOD doesn’t mean thinking he might destroy us with his fury or with his power; or to feel agony or anxious. It is to believe he is the creator of the world and live by his command
