Did you know that Adam and Eve were the first refugees?

The very first refugees we know of in history, are Adam and Eve.

They became refugees because of sin, their own sin.

People become refugees because of sin. Most times it is because somebody else sinned. Somebody becomes greedy, or self centered or mean or cruel. Because of that sin, innocent people have to flee to be able to survive. God loves all people, refugees and others. He hates sin and the bad things people do, but He is love. Anybody may come to God to get forgiveness of sins. Write to us if you want to find forgiveness and if you want to find God.

Prophet Moses was a Refugee

Prophet Moses was a Refugee

Like many refugees, Moses lived in a dangerous place at a dangerous time. His people was oppressed by the Pharaoh, although Moses lived in the palace as a prince. In his anger Moses killed an Egyptian and had to flee. He then became a refugee for many years. He started rebuilding his life. Married and named his firstborn son “I have become a foreigner in a foreign land.”

Maybe he dreamed of going back to his own people and family, but he was scared.

The Syrian man was sad, “I’m a teacher, but I cannot work. My 14 year old son now support us. My wife is a diabetic, my child needs an operation…” My friend here was a lecturer at a university…” We are in prison here in the camp, we have nowhere to go!” His voice became louder, I had a house, a car, a future, but everything was bombed! We are lost!”

The truth shall set you free.

The truth shall set you free.

Jesus said: “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” We read this in the Bible in John 8 verse 32.

Do you know how to hold to the teaching of Jesus?

What does He mean when He says the truth will set you free?

How can truth set me free? Write to us and we will write back.

 

The truth shall set you free.

2+2=5

From a very young age you were taught that 2+2=4. Of course, it makes sense.

But what if someone tells you this is wrong?

What happens in your mind if something you believed for your whole life was true and someone else comes along and tells you the opposite. That which you believed with your whole heart was not really the truth! Like what you believe about God.

Would it not be the best to go and find out for yourself? To investigate this thing you believed as truth? Why not go and find the truth yourself?

If it comes to your belief in God, why not talk to God and ask Him to show you the Truth. I would like to challenge you. Ask the God who created you to show you His truth. If you are sincere in your seeking of the truth, the God of Truth will show you.

What do you understand by Truth? Do you think that people lied to you about what truth is?

 

Truth: The love of God

Truth: The love of God

A professor once told a story to illustrate the love of God. The story is of a Supreme Scientist who lived in a huge scientific centre which stretched thousands of kilometres in all directions. This Supreme Scientist built and developed the centre. He had many scientists working for him. In this centre everything was pure and perfect and holy. No dirt or even a speck of contamination would be allowed in this centre and there was perfect peace and harmony. There were millions of buildings in the centre. In the middle of the centre was a building with many rooms. The scientists were all amazed that every day the Master Scientist would walk through all the many corridors in this building passing thousands of doors to go to one specific room in this building. Inside this room were huge cabinets with drawers and every day the Master Scientist would go to one specific drawer and look through thousands of small glass plates until He would find one specific plate. He would carry that small plate to a microscope and with great care the Master Scientist would focus on one small speck called earth. Then He would zoom in until He saw two tiny, tiny creatures which He called His people. He would talk and communicate with these people.  He loved those creatures.

Then one day something terrible happened. Evil entered the perfect centre and it came from that building, that room with that drawer on that glass plate from those people. All the scientists knew that no contamination could enter the centre. They knew the scientist would take acid and with one drop burn that dirt and wipe it out. They all waited while the Scientist talked with His Son. Then they heard the news: the Scientist had a plan. He would send His Son to that small glass plate to that planet called earth. They saw how the Scientist made His Son smaller and smaller until He became just like those creatures called people. This perfect Son went to that planet and talked with those people. He stayed with them among the contamination. He would eat their food and talk their language.

Then one terrible day they saw that the Scientist took all those dirt and contamination of the people and poured it onto His Son. Then the Scientist took the acid and with one drop He wiped all the contamination away. The Son cried in agony “My Father, My Father, why have you forsaken Me!” Then the Son died. After three days He rose again, spent some more time with those people and was then taken back into the Centre. All people could now also enter the pure holy centre when they start to follow the Son because the Son took away all their impurity.

This is only an illustration of the greatest story ever told and most wonderful truth that ever happened. God’s story and your story and mine. Do you believe that? Do you want to follow the Son?
